The meat world war is ended!
Doubtless tn the history of the
world no announcement has come to
the nations of the earth bringing so
much of joy and thanksgiving, and
tabing from the peoples of tho
whole universe such a weight of grief
and horror. For America tho news
brings-coming as it does tn our Na
tional Thanksgiving month-an ad
ditional ground for the profound and
religious observance of a day of real
and prayerful thanksgiving. Well
mmy we as a nal ion humhlo ourselves
au never before in the prosoncc of
the (?rent Ruler ot the Universe and
Ibo Man of Peace- -the arbiters ol'
wars, the over-rulers ol* tho machina
tions of man and the greed and lust
for power of monarchs and autocrats.
This is indeed a groat day! Peace!
The word sounds almost Strange to
the human ear after four long and
Wer.ry years ol' bloodshed and carn
age. Though far from thc scenes ol'
nm roc thal have blasted a continent,
'he announcement comos to na as
'tidings of great joy." What must

?tricket] countries overseas- whore

From proud and arrogant Fm po

portan! Sessions Doing Held ill thc
City of Now York.
Yesterday, November 12th, there
gail in tho city of New York what
unquestionably tho most lin por t
t con volition of 1. nt horans over
e)d In America. The three Older
dies ot the Lutheran chrucli the
floral Synod, organized in 1820;
. General Council, organized In
>7, and tho United Synod South,
il dug buck to the Civil War-have
-t tor the last timo as Independent
Sonic bodies. Before the present
ek is over their forces will be
omblned and there will be a new
.ii i ty in American religious lite
Tho United Lutheran Church in
.vinerlca, representing a communi
cant membership or soo,ooo mem
bers and a baptized membership ot
N. V. Stole March Oil Pittsburgh.
Tho New York laymen, it Is said,
stdio a mardi on Pittsburgh in secur
ing this important convention for
New York city, lt had already been
deolded Bomo months ago by thc com
mittee, on ways and means of the
;,. rging bodies to hold the conven
tion at Pittsburgh. Whon tho New
York laymen hoard of this they Im
mediately got busy got the hacking
of a number of ci.ic bodies, made
ri; borato provision for entertainment
nnd came beforo tho next mooting of
I ways and means committee urg
lng tho claluiH of tho metropolis of
tho country as tho propor place to
consummate a religious event of such
groat Importance. Tho ways and
means committee acceded to their
request, and tho Pittsburgh Luther
ans graciously stepped aside and gave
tho palm to New York.
A Solemn Procession
On Thursday (to-morrow) even
ing the bodies will go in solemn pro
cession to Holy Trinity Church for
the common celebration of Holy
Communion. Tho procession will
bo led by tho ways and means com
mittee, in which are tho presidents
of thc three general bodies. To Dr.
H. E. .Jacobs, dean of the Mount Airy
Seminary at Philadelphia, has fallen
the honor of preaching tho sermon at
this first common communion. The
presidents of the three general bod
ies-Dr. Theo. E. Schmauk. Dr. V. G.
A. Tressler and Dr. M. G. C. Scherer
?-will officiate at the solemn func
Friday morning will bo the llrst
business meeting formally to consum
mate the merger. It -.sill be held lu
the auditorium of the Engineers' So
cieties Building. West ,'1'Jth street.
Dr. Theo. E. Schmauk, chairman of
the ways and means committee, will
bo the presiding officer and conduct
tho opening service. To him has been
assigned Hie duty also of summariz
ing thc hlstoi V of the three bodies,
especially since their approach to
ward unification. Greetings will be
brought from many different parts of
the country and divers organizations.
They will be received at the begin
ning of the meeting.
The first business will be the elec
tion of the officers of the general
body. While much speculation is
held as to who will be the man to
head this largo force of Lutherans lu
America, lt ls Impossible to make any
forecast. A number of strong and
able men are under consideration.
On Sunday, November 17, a large
mass meeting will bo held in tho Hip
podrome. The centre of the decora
tivo scheme will be a gigantic bust of
Martin Luther, from whom the Lu
theran church takes its name. The
speakers on this occasion will be the
Hirco presidents of the uniting bod
ies. A innsH choir has been prepar
ing for some time to render an appro
priate music program. Similar meet
ings will be held on tho same evening
in the Academy of Music in Brooklyn
and in tho large auditorium in .(el
sey City, across the Hudson.
Important Religious Event,
lt is difficult to over-estimate the
importance of this event, coming at a
time like tho present, lt has been
called tho most important religious
event in America (Iiis year. What
ever the truth of ibis statement may
bo, it is ont I roi y within tho bounds ol'
truth lo call ll the most important
ovent in tho history of tho Lutheran
church in America.
Indications are that the divided
Lui heran ehrlich is drawing together
for greater common action. This
merger brings tho older bodies toge
ther. The Scandinavian bodies, num
bering over (100,000 members, have
hoon rapidly approaching each other.
The three large bodies formed out of
Ibo large Lutheran immigration of
the middle ol* the last century--the
?Sy nodical Conference, the Iowa Synod
and tho Joint Synod of Ohio-have
already discussed tho possibility of
closer fellowship with promising re
sults. There is every indication at
hand that Hie Lutheran situation will
resolve itself into three great groups
'representative of the linguistic and
racial, as well as the doctrinal, in
terests of the church In this country.
At the same time there is every indi
cation that these groups will act in
many tl'.ngs In common. It means
that Lutheranism in America is be
coming a national force that will
have to be considered most seriously
in tho religious work and future of
tho country.
