Bishop Charles D. Williams
preached a patriotic sermon in st-
Paut's cathedral Tuesday night,
when he addressed the spring meet
ing of the church’s archdeaconry,
which will be In session until Wed
nesday night.
The eloquent clergyman sketched
briefly the causes leading up to the
war, analysed every provocation of
the United States to engage in the
monster struggle, and arrived at the
1 conclusion that ths sword drawn by
Uncle Stun has been “bathed in
heaven.” There Is no lust of con
quest, no passion for power or ag
grandiaeinent and no desire for ex
tension of territory, he said, and
continued:
A people vhom we all love end
admire for the characteristic virtues
•>f their individual lives and for their
composite «-haracter have apparently
gone insane Thru half a century
skillfully planned and conducted
psychological preparation and edu
cation, by the ruling class, it has
been hyponntlaed into war-madness.
It has solemnly eoasecrated Itself to
worid-eonquest as to a holy cause
And it will endure to the end In that
strife, devoting Its last ounce of en
i ergy. Its last drop of b’ood to the

Nothing la «afe if it should prevail.

For the sake of th» world this mad
nation must be controlled if It cannot
be taught reason. Just a* an e*.-aped
lunatic must be confined for the sake
of the community
If we did n. t rise to the occasion
