WrFW "a "a WWWWW Discusses War's Causes Another large audience assembled rn the auditorium at Woodward A Lothrop's on Monday morning iai 10 near siisa Janet Richards discuss the vital ques tions of the day. both home and foreign. Miss Rlehards has been called the human editorial, because of her faculty for cub ing out and co-ordinating the salient facts from the current happenings of the day, and then transmitting them to her audiences in what some one has called "pleasant and palatable capsule form." At the talk last Monday Miss Richards began with a group of subjects of "home interest," Including the istest phases of the Mexican problem, describing condi tions at Nsco, Arte., the aliased violation of neutrality and disregard of the port laws at the two entrances to the Panama Canal. Col. Goethals' request for naval Is with which to guard the isthmus. and the question of "our naUonal d '. After presenting the pros and rona concerning the foregoing subjects. Miss Richards gave an Interesting account of the deliberations of the Pan-Araeri-an I'nion on Tuesday, December S. when the diplomatic representatives of twenty of the American republics considered the violations of the three-mile limit in American coast waters and other allege 1 violations of neutrality laws on the part of the Teasels of several of the belligerent powers. In discussing the desirability of extend ing ike water line beyond the present three-Tnlle limit, Mlas Richards remln.leil her audiences that the Peruvian Minis ter, Senor Pexet, had gone so far as tn propose to the conference that It shoull recommend extending the limit of neu trality to the very center of the Atlantic Ocean. "This," said Miss Richards, "IS. as you will recall, the method of delimitation applied to the waters of the Great Ikes between our country and Canada, as well as to the European lakes, but how it could be made a practical 'working proposition on the 'big pond' remains to be seen." Reverting, after the "fresh-air inter mission, to the European wsr. MlftM Richards called attention to the great war-credit of Ave billion marks (one and a quarter billion dollars), voted by the German Reichstag on De cember 2, and the fact that the sole dissenting vote was cast by the leader of the German aoctallat. Ilerr Karl Liebknecht. who later, explained his vote by declaring that this war was not desired by any of the peoplea affect ed, nor waa it kindled tu promote the welfare of th Germans or any other people. The war Is a Napoleonic at tempt to unnerve and crush the grow ing democracy of Germany known aa the labor movement. That this waa the real inner cause of the war was commented upon by Miss Richards as a belief held in many quarters, numerous references to which she had coilectr, from papers, maga zines, and editorial utterances. She quoted from a recent editorial In a Baltimore paper, which stated that Just before the outbreak of the war It had warned Its readers that the wide spread unrest in Europe and agitation for a broader democracy was driving the dynasties and their supporting classes to prefer a costly war with all Its hazards, to the supposedly less manageable hazards of peace under the above named conditions.

A few minutea before he took up the railroad matter one of hla frlenda Jokingly reminded him of the 1100.000 breach of promise suit recently brought against him by Mrs. I. C. War ham, of Elmhurst. N. Y. After she brought the suit the woman was jailed on another charge. "But she got out of jail," a friend re minded him. Would Pat Her Hack Again. "Yes, and she was nabbed again and put back again." Mr. Zimmerman said. "I'll fix her as fast as she gets out." It was only a short time after this when he toppled over and fell Into the arms of one of the group surrounding him. Mr. Zimmerman was sixty-nine years old, a veteran of the civil war, a thirty-second degree Mason, aad a member of the Loyal Legion. He had planned a trip to New York to attend to important business tomor row, but was prevailed upon by Dr. A. B. Thrasher, his physician, not to make tne trip as it mignt cost him hia life.

It is reasonably estimated that the fall of British bonds to one half par has already made Insolvent all the insurance companies of Great Brit ain. What must we expect as the war progresses toward anarchy? As with every war. pestilential dis eases must be expected, while interfer ence with agriculture threatens famine In siious parts. This Is not an over drawn picture, but a sober look behind the scenes The One Ray al More. "Hope thou In God!" In the midst of all these tribulations the world must learn more and more, until all know the lesson by heart, that earth's only hope ia in God. This is one of the great lessens which God wishes all mankind to learn: For centuries men have boast ed of what could and what could not - done of the world's financial Institu tions. insurance associations, scientific learning and general common sense. These, we were assured, were a part of an evolutionary system which some time in the future would make man so wise. so great, so efficient, that there would be no more wars, no more dying, no more trouble. We were said to be near that climax. Some of the 'Peace' Peace'" sermons of even a year ago seem laughably fool ish today. The great and the wise de serted the Bible as a foolish old book gotten up by those who were mpr.lv emerging from monke condition. Thev must yet learn a lesson recorded twentv- fol-lflve centuries ago: namely, that the wis BSsmSaV aSB - dom of their wise men haa periahed. (Isaiah 3 H.I They must learn that the wisdom of men Is foolishness with God. even as the wisdom of God Is foolishness with men. 1 Corinthians l:Ja, 21, 25; S:1S.

Many have thought that It had I already come. Many others Imagined that because God in the past haa not ex ercised power and force In dealing with humanity therefore He will not do so tn the future. The Bible, however, assures us that Measiah's kingdom will be a forceful one. He will rule the nations with a rod of Iron. As a vessel of a pot ter they shall be broken to shivers.

The shaking, as we have already shown, will be social, political, financial and re ligious. The creeds, representing the monstrous fallacies engrafted upon the teachings of the Bible In the Dark Ages, will be shaken to pieces, and ull the great Institutions misnamed "churches" will be shaken with them. Only the One True Church will stand not the Church of England, not the Church of Rome, not the Church of Germany, not the Church of Russia, but the Church of God. It will Includ ai saintly followers of Jesua of every nation aad denomination; and It will exclude all others. Peace on stare," Very soon. How glorious the hope that Messiah's Kingdom, backed by Divine Power, will speedily set the world's affairs in order, bringing peace out of confusion, war, strife' Human strength weakened, hu man pride humbled into the dust, hu man hope: dished, the world will be i-eady for the New Day the New Era. The Bible beautifully pictures it as the rising of the Sun of Righteousness with healing In His beams scattering the darkness, ignorance, superstition, sin, death, that have caused the night of sor row never to be forgotten. The Lord's people, awake and looking In the light direction, already perceive that we are In the dawning of the Mil lenniumthat the bieeaiags which have come to the world during the past forty rears are Millennial blessings, fore glearaa of still greater fevers soon to be poured out. These Millennial bless ings have not brought proper responses tn human hearts. Instead of gratitude, the spirit of selfishness has begotten dis content, covetousneas. which will short ly eventuate, as the Bible tells, with every man's hand against hla neighbor and against his brother Exekiel 3. .31; Zecharlah 8:10. "I Causae ot ia Sead Peace." But do the Scriptures contradict them selves? What did the Great Teacher mean when - .e declared, "I came not to send peace on the earth, but a sword4" (Matthew 10.34.1 He referred prophetical ly to the effect which His gracious Mes sage of love snd favor would produce in the world during the reign of Sin and Death. He well knew that the Prince of Darkness would oppose all of Hla fol lowers as -veil aa Himself. He sent forth His followers unarmed, like Himself, to be peacemakers, to "follow peace with all men. and holiness, without which no man shall see the Lord." He counsel led His followers that "he that taketh the sword shall perish by the sword." Matthew SfcSZ But their Measase of peace, love and the uminc Kingdom seems to anger the world not merely the vicious, the un godly, but the worldly professors of god liness who have schemes, plans and the ories of their own to work out which are contrary to the Gospel Messase Tne dsrkneas, more or leas mixed with sel- flahnesa. hateth the light, the Truth, the Love of God. neither cometh to the light, lest its deeds of selfishness. clflh am bition and hypocrisy should be made manifest. The Master knew whst the effects of His Gospel Message would be In the world. He knew that only those who would compromise His message could possibly live at peace that an who would he loyal and faithful to Him would he traduced, slandered, perse-cuted-"beheaded." either llterall or fig uratively. His words, therefore, were a prophecy respecting the tribulations which all His footstep followers would surely have. More than Ibis. His words were a prophecy respecting the nations.

What, then is the hope of the ful filment of our text" We answer that our Master who declared that He was not the Prince of this Age. also declared that Hla Kingdom of the next Age will he Introduced with power and great aiory. and that although its Initial mani festation will be with clouds, darkness and a Time of Trouble such as never be fore ha. been, n-tertheless Hia BeigM will be glorious, triumphant and eternal. "He shall reian until He hath nut all enemies under Hi feet." "L'nto Him everv knee shsll bow and every tongue confess." Immanuel's i i.-torv means the over throw of sin the crushing of the Ser pent's head At the very beginning of Measiah's glorious Reign Satan shall be bound; and following Its close he shall be destroyed in the Second Death, to gether with all who love unrighteous ness, after they shall have had full op portunity for recovery from the snares of sin and death Then the whole world will proclaim the glorv of God. As the Scriptures declare. There shall be no more sighing, no mure dying sll the former things of sin and death shall have passed away. Revelation 21:1 -(iewd Will Aaaoagrat Mea. The attainment of the condition of good will amongst men will mean the attain ment of human perfection. God Is Love: and when our first parents were created an earthly Image of God. tove must have been the predominant quality of their characters' What we see of selfishness is lsrgely a matter of heredity, and all of life'., customs are in line with it and continually Increasing its weight and Its hold urn us But with the new King and the Reign of Righteousness will come tne gionoua upiiiung ana transformation. Gradually, during the thousand years of Messiah's domination of the world, tha evils of selfishness will be made appar ent, and the beauties of holiness and love will be shown In contrast. Restitution rewards will lift all the willing and obedient up out of sin and selfishness to holiness and love. Then, with love the very essence of man's be ing, good will towards men will every where prevail: for the Divine Law, al most effaced through the reign of Sin. will be rewritten In the human consti tution. The upward move, resurrection, uplifting, regeneration, will go rapidly on. Meantime, generation after gen eration shall come forth from the tomb, and enjoy similar experiences Finall til shall nave come forth; for the Love of Cod made this provision through the death of our Redeemer. Finally, dear friends, how glad we are that this Is true! How glad we are that the terrible falsehoods palmed off on us during the Dark Ages respecting a God of hatred and a Hell of everlast ing torture are not true' How glad we are that Messiah's Kingdom will be a Kingdom of Peace after the great time of trouble.
