Archbishop Ireland oft Charity.
Check-drawing is not the whole of
Christian charity, according to Arch
bishop John Ireland, who preached
the conference sermon to the delegates
to the national conference of Chari
ties and Correction at the Auditorium,
Minneapolis, on Sunday afternoon.
Though the day was oppressively
hot, the attendance was fair and those
who came were doubly repaid by an
excellent sermon and a cooler at
mosphere than could have been found
elsewhere. Amos W. Butler, presi
dent of the conference, presided, and
the stage seats were filled by the local
clergy and charity workers.
Taking as his text the broad defini
tion of charity contained in Christ's
saying, "inasmuch as ye do it unto
one of the least of these," the*arch
bishop argued that the essence of
charity is the giving of personal serv
and sympathy. Charity, to be
real charity, must be, he said, in
spired by this divine sympathy. It
must not consist merely of giving
alms where thy are needed it is also
the extending of sympathy and en
couragement to the down-trodden the
giving of understanding and pity to
the weak and wayward.
"Give us justice and we will not
need charity,'] said the archbishop,
is a plea often heard, but it is ncft a
true plaint. Too often those who are
dependent are so through their own
folly or their own sin, yet justice,
when tempered by charity, does not
insist that they bear unaided the
burden they have assumed.
Christ brought the first true char
ity into the world. His whole life ex
emplified it and the manner of his
death gave it supreme expression.
When he asked, "What can a man do
more than give up his life lor an
other?" he laid down the supreme
rule for charity. The mere giving of
money does not fulfil} this rule, said
the archbishop. It requires some
thing of self-sacrifice, something of
Let every mar give something of
himself with his gift to the pdor.
Then he is rendering to them the true
charity of Christ. Let him go to his
unfortunate neighbor, not as a cold,
calculating dispenser of the bare
necessaries of life, but as a friend
come to relieve the sorrow and want
of a friend. Such is the charity
uplifts at once the giver and
Through this address, which was
admirably gauged to the heat of the
day, the audience listened with close
attention. The services closed with
the singing of "America" by the au
dience. Other music was furnished by
a large mixed chorus and a quartet.
Good Citizens to the Bescue
A city should always be ruled by its
best elements, not by its worst and in
its best elements are to be included all
residents of good purpqse and law
^abiding character. In the matter of
good citizenship there is no distinc
tion of wealth or social position or
even business success. The only test
is civic patriotism, the desire and the
effort for an orderly, ]ust and law
abiding regime which shall secure the
highest good to the greatest number
of people. That cities are not always
fact are infrequently so ruled is
due to divisions and indifference of
those who might and should bring
good things to the city and the prac
tical surrender of the municipal busi
ness to spoilsmen, boodlers and
grafters. When the limit of endurance
has been reached, the indifferent citi
zens come to the relief, as they have
done in San Francisco. In that city
the cost of that indifference has been
appalling it ought to suggesj the need
of a continuing activity which shall
make and keep the city what it ought
to be. Worthy, right minded and law
abiding men are always in the ma
jority and, if they will may secure for
any city a government that will be all
that could be desired. But there must
first be an abandonment of the idea
that the offices of a city are the
propeivspoils of any party.Colum
