LABOR ANDTHE CHURCH
ADDRESS BEFORE PRESBYTE RIAN BROTHERHOOD. In an address last night before the brotherhood of the New York Avenue Presbyterian Church, at a meeting held In the lecture room of the church. Rev. Charles R. Stelzle. pecretary of the de partment of church and labor of the Presbyterian Church, discussed the rela tion of the church toward the laboring man. lie took for the subject of his address. "Capturing Men for the Church of Jesus Christ." In his opening remarks Mr. Stelzle said: "I want to refute a statement often made and declare that I have yet to find a working man who docs not believe In Jesus Christ." He then told of the Rork of the Presbyterian Church through Its department of church and labor, and declared that 10.000,000 laboring men of the I'nlted States are being addressed weekly through the mediums of the labor j papers of various parts of the country. > "The labor problem." he declared. "Is J fundamentally a moral and religious one. j The preacher who is hitting sin today Is ! helping to a great extent to solve the j problem of labor. The work to help the j laboring man is going forward, though it Is still In its infancy. The tendency of the working man is toward the church and ; not away from it. To attract him the ! church must first of all be sincere. Is It j surprising that the working man is sus- j plclous when he sees the men who have betrayed him. in instances, prominent in church work?" Mr. Stcizle said tlie spirit of democ racy is what counts today In the church It Is that which attracts the working man. He told at length of his early life as a boy in the tenement districts of the east sid* of New York city, where late at night lie would awake to find his loving mother busily sewing that bread might be kept in the mouths of her small children. He told of the small wages she received for the work and of the two little rooms oc < ipied by the family, wtyere the light and sunshine rarely peered in. ?"This." he said, "was the life that has brought me today to be a defender of the rights of the laboring man and the enemy of the sweat shop and child labor in all forms." Growth of the Work. He then gave a short account of the wonderful growth of the work of the church in the ranks of organized labor the past four years. In conclusion, he said: "This Is the era of the common man. Will he be Inspired by the high ideal given him by the church of Jesus Christ?" President Myron J. Jones of the brother hood presided over the meeting and Intro duced the speaker of the evening at the opening. At the close of his address Rev. Mr. Stelzle Invited questions rela tive to the work, and the Invitation was accepted bv Mr. Justice Harlan, Rev. Dr. "Wallace Radcliffe. pastor of the New York Avenue Church; Rev. Dr. Charles F. Winbigler. pastor of the First Baptist <"hurch. and a number of others in at tendance.

REGULATION OF CORPORATIONS Addresses Delivered Before the Washington Economic Society. ?

Dr. Charles P. Neill pre sided at the meeting in the absence of the President. Secretary James R. Garfield. Mr. Smith strongly urged that federal "supervision or regulation be provided for ?corporations engaged In interstate com mvrce, and stated that, in his opinion, publicity in regard to the financial and commercial operations of such corpora tions would effectively prevent many of the wrongs which obtain under present conditions. Mr. Smith argued that effi cient regulation is not possible if left to tne Individual action of the several states, but must be vested In the national govern ment.
