TIIE ARIZONA REPUBLICAN MONDAY MORNING, AUGUST 31, 1908.
' M Deer and Turkey Season OPENS SEPTEMBER 15. It Is the ambition of every sportsman to kill a deer or wild turkey: in the east where game is scarce, a man will often spend hundreds of dollars on a deer hunt, and then not get any game. In Arizona where we have lots of deer. It is an easy trip, and requires but little money to get the limit of three male deer, and ns many turkeys as you can use. If you don't know where the game is, -we can put you "wise." We have a large stock of fresh rifle ammunition, and have two very large shipments due this week, direct from the Winchester and U. M. C. factories. We have the latest Winchester and Remington automatic high power rifles; also Winchester and Marlin 30-30, 30-40, 23-33, 32 spe cial, 33. 25-20, 32-20, 44-40, and other popular calibres in rifles and car bines, including several models made specially to our order.

Rockefeller to attack the con- duct of the oil business or for John 1). Jr., . to expatiate on uselessness of Bible classes would be hardly more surprising .than for the pastor of the ultra-conservative Rockefeller church. Rev. Charles . F. Aked. to criticise Christianity as practised in the churches of today and to assert that the churches themselves are doomed to extinction unless the present course of events changes. Yet this is exact ly what has happened and instead of repenting his rashness the man who has the distinction of being religious preceptor to the richest man in the richest man in the world proposes to follow up his first attack which ap pears In Appleton's magazine by a series of articles to continue for a year or more In which he will tell other uncomfortable truths about the failure of the churches and the need of a decided change in their spirit and methods if they would avoid being complctly wiped out by the attack of dry rot from which they are suffering. "I didn't want to do it," said Dr. Aked when asked as to his reasons for attacking the methods of existing or ganizations for religious work and thus laying himself open to the charge of muchraking" the churches. "I have 'wen more or less a storm center ever since I entered the ministry and I had planned for quiet and rest. Besides it occurred to me that it might be felt that my Americanism was of too re cent an origin to entitle me to the role of critic. Rut and the gaze of the famous Fifth Avenue preacher wandered out of his study window which overlooks the greenery and the glimrr.nring lake of Central Park from the top of a big apartment hotel "but the word had to be spoken and the opportunity to speak it in a way that would reach a host of thinking men and women throughout the coun try came to me. and so I am trying to perform the task that seems to me ab solutely necessary to the salvation of Christianity." He swept the air with a wide gesture indicating the extent of the field to be covered and paused to seo if he was understood. I The pause gave an opportunity to study this man who has startled the religious conservatives out of their comfortable somnolence on more than one occasion since he came over from Kngland to take charge of the Fifth Avenue Baptist Church the church which is celebrated the country over by reason of its Rockefeller connec tion, through the fact that John D.. is its prominent member and sometime passes the plate of a Sunday morning, and that John D. Jr., organized and conducts its famous Bible class. At first glance one would set down the Hi'V. Dr. Aked as a quiet, studious in dividual, a lover of books and a think er of thoughts, rather than a man of determined action. But when he be gins to speak the squareness of jaw I 1 1 11' 1 1 M Hilt I'M' Mill 1 H I WALL PAPER CHEAP Phoenix Hardware Co. 41II11H .M"M"M"M"M"1"M"M' 11 ,, ; COLUMBIA PtgrpQT saTisraennm jupthikc bettpSj fS) V JT CURED p-T) v 7 ' vi- Mai in .A ' V $Mc'o'i!uV I A-1 GALL CURE 1 h in mi hi 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 Genuine ii Ostrich Feather Goods li at the Show I Arizona Ostrich Farm II 1 First Street and Adams.

As he moves about the slender figure reveals the well-knit proportions of the man of athletic habit. There is a dynamic force behind the utterances that makes them strike home. There is something Rooseveltian about the set and action of the Jaw as it cuts off the words. It is easy to understand i '' e-osncl of neace. Dr. Aked is a man of strenuous thought and with the courage of his convictions as it shown by his ministerial record. "The question of the decreasing membership and waning influence of religion the churches is not a de nominational question," continued Mr Aked. "It is not a national question. It Is a question as wide as Christian ity itself. Conditions in America are, broadly speaking, the same as in Eng land and in England as in the rest of Fnrone. I can see the difference in this country since I first visited the United States, fifteen years ago. The danger is not from direct attack on religion. The denial of belief, that is, atheism, has spent its force. What the churches have to fear is a more in sidious danger indifference. He feels that he can do without it. If you ask him whether he believes in God, in the existence of an infinite .power su perior to man the chances are that ' he will say 'yes.' But questions of dogma, distinction! of creed, do not Interest him and he refuses to concern himself about them. He has made up his mind that he can get along with out religion that is religion as it has been expounded to him. But that does not mean necessarily that- he is irre ligious. "It seems to me that this indifference is more pronounced in America than in England, just as orthodoxy is more strictly defined and more unyielding over here. And where there is indif ference to the church I can form no other conclusion than that the church j Yet the need of re- itself is to blame. liglon never has Veen greater in any :ige or country then in this country Hn.l in the day we live in. Churches exist and preachers are maintained i re mind men Mid nations of the elerml laws they must obey and the eternal love in which they may rest. And in the United States they may yet he needed as the mainstay of social order. Either the churches have got to live up to the task of keeping the soul f the nation alive or they will perish." 1 Do you think that members of the ministry generally agree with your views?" "The facts speak for themselves. Statistics gathered by Dr. Josiah ' Strong show that the gain of the churches in membership in proportion to the gain in population is steadily and rapidly falling off. In the past twenty years it Is less than half what it was in' the preceding twenty. The trouble Is that to"owiuch of our relig ion, both as it is preached and as it is practiced lacks life. The attitude of a vast number of persons toward it is like that of the New York banker who said to a certain preacher at the con clusion of his sermon: 'This is the first time I eer knew the religion had anything to do with living. I thought it had to do only with dying and go ing to helL' " ! 1 M"M"M 1 1 11 1 I 1 1 1 I 1 1 1 1 1 1 IT t i t 1 1 1 1 1 1 H 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 11- WE GUARANTEE to cure wire cuts and sores on your horses with Columbia Gall cure or Healing Powder.

But don t you think that many churches will disagree with you and claim that you are attacking religion itself?" "Very likely. Differences of opinion are certain to exist among living men It is only a cemetery that you will find unanimity. All the evils of controversy are temporary: all its benewits are permanent. This is one respect In which religious thought in England is ln advance of America. They are not arraia to discuss these subjects over there. "How about the various schemes that have been adopted to attract men to church, such as vaudeville concerts. the serving of temperance drinks and similar means?" "They simply show how desperate tne situation Has become In some quarters. But I don't believe that the church can compete with the by turning it self into a weak saloon imita tion or with the theater by presenting a poor theatrical attraction. Practical religion must concern itself with the saloon, with politics, with questions of hetter homes' and better home life for the poor, but the way to strengthen1 religion is not by debasing it." "Practical religion," sums up the re form which Dr. Aked would introduce in the churches. In his own expe rience he has been remarkably sue cessful by its application in attracting support to the churches with which he has been connected. His first charges after he left University College at Nottingham were two poverty-stricken churches in Lancashire known as St. Helen's and Leicestershire. The suc cess he achieved in these restricted fields led to his call to take charge of Pembroke Chapel in Liverpool. This had been at one time the leadinir non conformist church in the city, presided over by Dr. Birrell, the father of An gustine Birrell who is a member of the British cabinet, but the district in which It was located had been over run by business structures and the church had declined until it had been proposed to abandon it. On the Sun day before Dr. Aked took charge the congregation consisted of thirty-five persons at the morning service and sixteen in the evening. ithin a few weeks, however, the fame of the new preacher spread through the city. Former attendants who had deserted the old church re turned and new members were attract ed to It. Some of the sermons preach ed by the hard hitting young minister aroused bitter controversy but the church continued to grow and for six teen years while Dr. Aked remained ln charge it was overcrowded and peo ple were turned away for lack of room at every service. It happened that the president of the board of trustees of the Pifth Avenue Baptist church of New York was in Liverpool over Sunday between two and three years ago. He asked the clerk of his hotel where he could hear a good sermon. "If you want a good Oermon go to Pembroke Chapel and hear Mr. Aked," replied the clerk. "Everybody goes tnere. The president of the board went to Pembroke Chapel and heard a good sermon. A year later when the pulpit of his own church became vaant he suggested that Dr. Aked be invited to supply his church for a month. The Liverpool preacher came and after he had preached once in the church he received a unanimous call to take charge. Since then he has startled the hide-bound members of his congrega tion by some of his utterances, just as his present attack In Appleton's on the inefficiency of the churches has startled others all over the country. But his own church is in no danger of closing its doors from lack of interest or attendance. Like a Clock. "Our business is all run down." "What shall we do?"

MAROONS DEFEATED WITH BANK BAT1ERY Which Was Their Mainstay Innings. Several Fast Executed. For Nine Doubles All Stars 0 0 0 2 0 0 0 1 03 Maroons 16000001 02 Despite the short notice given the fans a good sized crowd witnessed the defeat of the Maroons for a second time at the hands of the All Stars, by a close score of 3 to 2. It was not won till the last man was out. At any mo ment it looked as if the Maroons might rally and run enough across the rubber to take the game in tow. There were a number of spectacular double plays in the contest to wake upthe enthusiasm of the rooters. Both teams starred in these events, the Maroons pulling off two, and the All Stars a pair. The first double killing executed bythe Maroons might have as well been recorded as a triple play, but there was one already ont at the time. A triple has not been made on the Phoenix diamond this vear. Principal interest attached to the I b.Tnk battery, as it was termed, and worked on Herzberg's teanj Dare, the pitcher, and Stlce the backstop both are employed in the Phoenix National Bank and the ball tossers have been hearing more or less about them of late. They workout rather Wtter than expected and the All Stars were not able to do much with Dare's delivery He has a large catalog of shoots and fair speed. His head work showed he had been In the game before. For the first game for months he did remark- ablv well in going the entire nine in ings. It Is thought that with mnr conditioning he will hold his own with iny of the pitching timber in these parts. Stice too caught him well and is possessed of the necessary wing to chop off the basestealers. But Johnson, who was In the box for the All Star did a shade the best work this season though he went into the game reluctantly. The Maroons got four hits off his benders, two of which were scratches or flukes. The All Stars secured four off Dare. The latter fanned three while Johnson mowed down six. The Maroons pushed Quiros oyer the pan in the first on an error at third, a stolen base, an over throw of second and a wild pitch. The next ball tossed after this wild heave was the third strike of the third out; North took base on balls in second, Grijalva's liner was nabbed by Tebben and North couldn't get bnc south in time to be safe. A near tally loomed up in the fourth when Scott was on third; North drove one to Bvers on second who threw him out at first and Scott stealing home was cut off by a hair at the plate on the double. The Ma roons had no chance to score till the eighth. In that round, Pedro walked. stole second and came home from sec ond when Mitchell bumped into Sulli van and the policeman dropped the fly hoisted by Scott. Scott tried a steal of second, but was nipped in the earlv bud by Pancho to Warner. In the last session, Grijalva rapped to right but expired, trying to make it a two bagger. The All Stars tallies came as fol lows: two were chalked up in the fourth. An error at third let Mitchell to first, Bvers single let him to second, and an overthrow of third by the first sacker to catch Mitchell allowed both to keep up the pace to home. Pancho drove out a two bagger following t.iis bum chuck, which would have tallied at least one of. the runners if not both anyway. The third All Star runwas achieved in the eighth, Warner taking sijcood on a muff of his long fly to left; he stole third and came home on Tebben's sacrifice fly to left. The "Maroons doubles were executed frlon Grijalva to Pedro ;and from Pero to North fin first. Both were quickly accomp nsneu. narier iauea 10 appear ln a suit and Pancho was used behind the bat and held up his end of the battle.
