TRIED UNTIL NOW Religion Has Not Failed in War, Says L. A.Wilson to Forum. THIS IS FIRST TEST baue Will Be Met as Other Questions Have Been in Other Years. Is Christianity a failure? Christianity has never been tried. The question was assigned to Rev. L. A. Wilson of Butte for discussion before the Missoula Public forum yes terday; the affirmation is his reply, quoted from Wendell Phillips and elaborated in an eloquent address. For Mr. Wilson the largest audience Which the public forum has yet at tracted went to Union hall yesterday afternoon and participated in an inter ested discussion of the religious prob lems which the speaker suggested. The meeting was in many ways the most successful yet held under the auspices Of the community institution, which ■bores Missoula's Sunday afternoons With the Community Sings. Net Tested Until Now. "The compatibility of Christianity and war has not been tested by the i world until now," said Mr. Wilson, dis I cussing the aprarent failure of Christ's I philosophy In the face of the world I War. "But once confronted with Ihe guest Ion, Christians will answer truly. Time was when the church defended Slavery; but when the question was lit squarely before the church Ohris Jty did not fall. Similarly Chrls inity 'failed' in respect to the liquor Ic until Christians fairly faced the sue." Christianity Must Go Farthsr. As a result of this war, said Mr. ITllson, Christianity must include [ larger field than that of nationality. •"The spirit of love and loyalty," as the I speaker defined Christianity, must be come more comprehensive, he said. The growth of Christianity was de scribed as beginning with "love and loyalty" to family and "failure" In larger relationships. Gradually the philosophy was applied to sueh social problems as slavery and child labor. Not until now, however, has the in compatibility of Christianity and war been suggested. The suggestion, forc ing the Issue, compels the, fullure of Christianity or war. And In this choice war cannot win. Tolls War Experiences. Mr. Wilson was recently a Y. M. C. A. secretary in France. Jly talked briefly of his war experiences, point ing out magnificent instances of men's "love and loyalty" for flag and coun try as types of the spirit which now must go to support of "the federation of the world." In a short excursion from his main theme Mr. Wilson appealed for a four fold democracy—political, social, indu trial and religious. No One Safe Alone. "No one of these democracies is safe In the world without the others," said the epeaker. He argued that it Is more dangerous to have political au thority exercised from above than to have social autocracy, based upon an cestry, or industrial autocracy, based upon wealth, or religious autocracy based upon arbitrary mediation be tween "an inidividuai soul and its God.' The address wus eloquently given Mr. Wilson insisted upon the faillir of war, yet did not argue that this war can be avoided, "Hrs any man a right to evade mili tary service upon the ground that lie has conscientious objections to \va someone asked. "No," Bald the speaker, "that Is rank individualism; an evasion ot social r Bponsibility." At the close of the address many questions were asked from the floor and speakers from the. audience pre sented opposing or affirming theories The next meeting of tin forum will he held on Sunday, February JO, Union hall.

Baltimore, Jan. 2T.—Senator Borah of Idaho, in an address to an immense atriotie defense league meeting today vigorously defended President Wilson's administration and congress against what he terms the "wild criticisms" of some men whom he said could not for get partisanship, hut whose real In tention was to get at the bottom of some of the mistakes that have been made in the preparations for war. lie said: "There arc a few men in the crucial times who are unable to forget their partisanship, but they must not be taken loo seriously, for let me assure you, that as a whole, congress is straining every nerve and spending days and weeks of energy In the great, task of turning a peace loving nation into a. fighting machine and doing everything in its power to put the nation on its strongest fighting basis. beg of you not to judge congress by the few who criticise.
