TO DEPORT FIRPI

With Secretary on Effort to
Bar Prize Fighter.
By the Associated Press.
NEW YORK, August 30. —Quoting
Secretary of Labor Davis as demand
ing "quick action” in the investiga
tion concerning the entry of Luis
Angel Firpo, the Argentine heavy
weight. into this country for his
fight with Harry Wills, September 11,
Bernard H. Sandler, counsel for Canon
William S. Chase, rector of Christ
Church, Brooklyn, declared yesterday
that the question of the fighter’s pos
sible deportation is now entirely In
the hands of Immigration Commis
sioner Henry H. Curran.
Mr. Sandler said that he had placed
In Commissioner Curran’s hands last
Monday an affidavit containing the
names of witnesses which purported to
show that Firpo had violated the im
migration laws a year ago in con
nection with the entry in this country
of Miss Blanca Lourde Picart.
Interview With Bavin.
'’When Mr. Curran apparently took
no action," said Mr. Sandier, “we
took the matter to Washington to
present it. if necessary, to the Presi
dent personally. We were received
hy Secretary Davis and got a fair
hearing. Mr. Davis told us that when
he read that Firpo had been allowed
to stay while the woman had been
sent hack, he said to his assistants.
‘Firpo should be thrown ovit of the
country if the law permits.’ ”
Mr. Sandier also quoted the Secre
tary as saying: ”1 want quick action
here. What's Curran doing about
it?"
After the alleged circumstances ot
Firpo’s entry here had been ex
plained. Mr. Sandler said. Secretary
Davis told his assistants: "Seek
Firpo's deportation as soon as pos
sible —he has no business here.”
Would Be Victory for Rickard.
Declaring that delay in the inves
tigation had resulted in the disap
pearance of "valuable aid to the
government,” Mr. Sandler continued;
’’lf the Federal Government is de
feated through the inertia of its pub
lic officials in charge of immigration
laws, Tex Rickard can hang on hl«
belt the scalp of I'ncle Sam to dangle
with that of Father Knickerbocker.”
Canon Chase has placed himself en
tirely at the command of Commis
sioner Curran, in connection with the
investigation. Mr. Sandler said. He
also declared that the canon was sup
ported in his activities against Firpo
by the International Reform Federa
tion. the Board of Temperance and
Prohibition and Public Morals of the
Methodist Episcopal Church and the
Lord's Day Alliance.
Commissioner Curran yesterday an
nounced that he was conducting an
active investigation of the case, with
instructions to arrest Firpo if the
circumstances warranted. He said he
had already started an investigation
when he received his instructions
from Washington yesterday.

Sunday School Lesson
JESUS TALKS WITH A
SAMARITAN WOMAN John
1v.4-4.
Golden Text—God is a Spirit,
and they that worship Him must
worship in spirit and truth—
John iv. 24.
Religious liberty received its first
legal recognition in our country. The
American system of spiritual free
dom guarantees to every soul the
privilege of worshiping God accord
ing to the dictates of his own
conscience. Our national position
upon this subject is the fruit of the
teachings of Jesus, who was the
pioneer of religious freedom, in His
conversation with the unnamed sin
ful Samaritan woman at Jacob's well.
Bitter prejudices had existed be
tween the Jews and the Samaritans
for several centuries. Ezra refused
to allow any marriages between the
two races because the Samaritans
were a mongrel people. He declined
their offers of assistance in rebuild
ing the temple. They were not al
lowed to participate in the worship
of Jehovah, whom they accepted a.s
their God. with the Jews. Nehemiah
excommunicated a young priest, who
was a member of a prominent family,
and expelled him from Jerusalem be
cause of his marriage to a Samaritan.
“The young priest inaugurated upon
Mount Gertzin a rival sanctuary and
ritual, to which the Samaritans be
came loyal.” While the Jewish re
ligion and scriptures broadened, the
Sararitans remained a non-pro
gressive and conservative religious
sect. The Pentateuch Is their only
sacred hook. The two similar yet
rival faiths fostered a jealousy
which increased with the years. The
hatred and distrust between the two
races were so great that in the days
of Jesus "travel between Jerusalem
and Galilee took a circuitous route
east of the Jordan.” It was due to
the army of Rome that serious out
breaks and conflicts between the
Jews and Samaritans were prevented.
Our Lord was not influenced by
national or religious prejudices. He
ignored them unless they were forced
upon Him. He judged men by their
character and without prejudice. He
was thus able to put Himself in their
place and win their hearts. The
Master did not confide His work to
the synagogue or the Sabbath, but
He used every opportunity presented
to win souls. He placed His stamp
of approval upon personal evangel
ism by His individual efforts to save
the lost. He followed His usual
practice, when the poor Samaritan
woman with a past, whose life, even
in that period of lax divorce, was a
public scandal, drew near to draw
water. It was due to her sinful ca
reer that she came at noon to Jacob’s
well, where the weary Lord was rest
ing.
Wellside Ministry.
Her approach aroused the Christ,
who probably had been left alone,
when the disciples went into the
neighboring community to buy food,
because He was worn out. Possibly
"John remained with Jesus and over
heard the conversation he reported.”
The Master’s enthusiasm and energy,
revealed in His effort to save the one
who had been rejected by the com
munity as being unfit for them to
associate with, was tempered with
discernment and discretion.
The Samaritan ministry was not on
the Lord's program when He turned
from Judea to go to Galilee by the
shortest road. He had offered Him
self to the religious leaders in Jerusa
lem and they had refused to accept
Him by trying to stir up strife be
tween his disciples and the followers
of John the Baptist. It was an inci
dental meeting that transformed the
social outcast into a missionary of
the gospel. Jesus won her heart and
aroused her interest when, by His
friendly approach. He broke down the
barriers of centuries. In seeking a
kindness from her, by asking for
water, the Master revealed His sym
pathy for her. He brought Himself
down for the time being to her level,
so that He could lift her up and save
her soul.
Christ took advantage of her
amazement at His request by stimu
lating her curoslty and then appealed
to her conscious human needs in an
effort to make this daughter of
shame realize her deepest needs by
offering her living water. Some have
considered that she was "cynical, in
sulting, flippant.” Jesus saw in her an
open-hearted, sincere soul, whose
questions revealed that she could be
saved. It was this fact that caused
the Master to tell her to call her
husband. He decided to make her
realize her sinful past, awake through
repentance a craving for forgiveness
and cleansing, which was the blessing
that He longed to impart to her.
The marvel is not that He knew the
secrets of her life, but that His spirit
of sympathy for the salvation of the
sinner was free from harshness. The
poor souid knew that she had loved too
much and was then living in sin with
out love, when His words brought her
face to face with her past life of sin.
Wonderful Revelation.
She confessed the facts when she
acknowledged that Jesus was a
prophet. She was convicted of her
sin, but she sought to avoid confess
ing it. Men are accustomed to parry
the personal thruse by turning the
topic from a personal one to reviving
old Intellectual debates upon theo
logical questions. The Lord refused
to be drawn into a controversy that
would have stirred up racial and re
ligious prejudices and prevented Him
from helping her. He answered her
questions in solemn and earnest
words that proclaimed the charter of
religious freedom, which truth Is too
little understood and followed today
by men in their attitude toward men
of other faiths.
Her questions—yes, even the con
test itself between the Jew and the
Samaritans as to Mount Gerizim and
Jerusalem—reflected the imperfect
and incorrect idea of worship which
dominated all the pagan religions
and colored even the worship of Je
hovah—the idea of locality; the be
lief that there is some one place
where acts of worship are more ac
ceptable to God than at other
places. The Master met the bigotry
of the woman with a fuller and
clearer expression of religious liberty.
He made clear for all ages the
spiritual fatherhood of God, the
spirituality and sincerity of worship
which He requires, and consequently
the removal of all local limitations
to His worship. Spiritual worship
will remove the barriers of race and
religion that men have erected.
When all men recognize the nearness
of God and worship Him in spirit and
in truth it will mark the dawn of a
new age of brotherhood, free from
strife and divisions among men.
Christ's revelation was more than
she could grasp, so she proposed to
wait until the Messiah should ap
pear to settle the problem for her.
To this ignorant social outcast Jesus
revealed Himself as the Messiah.
Without waiting to confess her
faith she hastened to the neighbor
ing community and proclaimed that
the Messiah had come. Many be
lieved upon her word. Others start
ed to investigate her statements.
She proved her faith by her mission
ary endeavors to win others for the
Christ.
Ten years have passed since the
writer rested at Jacob's well and
drew water from its depths. Recall
ing the impressions of that hour, see
ing small children carrying mortar
to build a new Greek Catholic Church,
one could not but help feeling that
Christ would have prohibited child
labor upon a building being erected
for His glory. He had a place for
the children as He had for the Sa
maritan woman in His gospel. Many
of His followers today would be sur

prised at the Lord's attitude toward
personal evangelism and foreign mis
sions. His disciples were surprised
to find Him talking with the Samari
tan. It is easier for some people to
consider the heathen at a distance
than to take steps to save’those at
our doors. The approach of those
whom the degraded soul transformed
by the grace of God had reached with
her story encouraged Christ, as He
pointed to them as an evidence that
the time of harvest had come. Many
of the Samaritans accepted Him, the
first fruits of the great ingathering
of the Gentiles that has taken place
throughout the world, because Jesus
taught the message of religious lib
erty to (he woman at Jacob’s well and
commanded His followers to preach
His gospel to every creature.
