Swallow of Camp Hill speaking on "Religious Denominations, Sane and Insane," decried a feeling of caste which he said existed in the Methodtst Church, and declared the ciiurch as a whole has been responsible for 6,- 000,000 deaths. "There has unfortunately grown lip In and around Methodism a spirit of caste, a feeling that in subordinate positions we have a privilege class, an autocracy, an aristocracy," said Dr. Swallow. "That ours is a monarchial form of government, while the trend in other churches as In the State is in the direction of a more in tense, a more liberal democracy. Most of our local churches have felt it in the drift from us of many of our most stable members, to churches where every member has a voice In the settling of their pastors. The su periority of our polity may of course be legitimately argued from the fact that though a feeder of all the churches Methodism still has more left than are found in any other one church, and more than the aggregate of several of them counted together. Church Responsible for 5,000,000 Deaths "Some of these churches spread the table of the Lord before members who are brewers, distillers, bar ten ders, saloon keepers and booze guz zlers, and nearly all of them have been through these 50 years of gov ernment profit-sharing partnership in the liquor business, so well content with the existing order of things as to leave it to their children to set them the example of saying as the Christian Endeavor society recently said in na tional convention these words: 'Trust ing in the Lord Jesus Christ for strength no political candidate or par ty not declaring for the destruction of the liquor traffic can have my support or vote.' And permit me to add that if the churches of this country had said that 50 years ago, and stuck to it, the traffic would long since nave been sent back to hell, whence it came. Let it not be forgotten that at the door of the American church lies the respon sibility for sending in these 50 years 5,000.000 of rum bloated bodies to drunkards' graves, and an equal num ber of souls to the drunkards' hell. Oh, there is some missionary work to do at home as well as in heathen lands, and the instrument is a bit of papeT called the ballot." LUTHERAN* St. Mark's, West Falrvlew —The Rev. A. G.

PICTURES OF CHRIST'S LIFE The social center at Cathedral Hall, North street near Second, will Inaugu rate its autumniseason with a delight ful entertainment on Monday evening. The feature will be a motion picture representation of the entire life of Christ. The pictures, unlike other representations of the kind, dealing only with certain events of the life, will present, in nine reels, every detail from the birth to the death. Your Soul Seeks Man's soul seeks. It has been ever true. Man's soul always seeks that which is higher than the power of man. It has been ever the fact. Back through the ages, when men were savages this innate craving for that "something" higher found its expression in the mythological, supersti tious worship of the elements of Nature over which man could exert no control. In this enlightened age, man no longer superstitiously worships the ele ments. All such thought was supplanted when God, through His love for the world gave His Son that man might find the true religious expres sion. To-day man worships one God, a God of love and mercy. God's laws are Nature's laws; the breaking of the one is the breaking of the other. God's command is that we worship Him, and His Son. It is a command that finds its expression in the attendance of the services which are held in worship of Him in His church. If you are inclined to doubt the truth of this thought it is because you have never allowed your spiritual nature to fully develop. Let your spir itual nature rise above those things which are purely material, give it a chance to find the expression of that which it constantly seeks.

FLAYS ROYAL FOR j PLAYING SELFISH GAME [Continued From First Page.] office-seeker who has figured in all the parties more or less in a hopeless ef fort to maintain something like party integrity. These Democrats are roast ing the machine leaders to a turn and while they have no use for Meals or any of the other aspirants for the mayoralty their wrath is visited up on Royal for his selfish interference with the selection of a real Demo cratic candidate for the chief magis tracy of the city. Mayor Only a Figure Head All over Harrisburg there is dis satisfaction by reason of conditions which confront the people ns a result of the uniform primary and the con sequent free-for-all. Their only com fort is the thought that the Clark act has deprived the Mayor of the cities of the third class of practically all his power and made him simply one of five commissioners with unimport ant duties. Mayor Royal is accused by Democrats of hanging on to the situation until it was too late to se lect a candidate who might have at tracted the independent strength of the city. While pretending to wait a court decision as to the right of present mayors to stand for re-elec tion, Royal was more concerned about his own job than in the welfare of the community. Hundreds of Demo crats, even faithful followers of the local machine and their party, will harpoon Royal as a candidate for commissioner as a rebuke to his po litical selfishness and everlasting trim ming. "The trouble with Royal is that he is always careful to promote Royal and nobody else," said a prominent member of his own party to-day. "All through his political career he has managed to trim his sails for all political winds. It has not been for gotten that at the Denver national convention of his party he straddled the Bryan issue and he has been straddling every other question right along. Whatever happens to the rest of the candidates for city commis sioner, it is a safe bet that Royal will not figure as a member of that body next year." Trying to Defeat Taylor There is a well-conceived plan among certain Democrats and their allies to defeat City CommissionerTay lor and thus make an opening for one of his Democratic machine favorites. It is an open secret that the Demo cratic machine will throw its support so far as possible to Sheesley and Gross, who are said to be on the Dem ocratic slate, which also includes O. M. Copelin, W. L. Gorgas and John K. Royal. Accusing Republicans of slate mak ing and factionalism, this same Dem ocratic machine is said to be doing its level best to pull through at the primaries and later at the general election its own particular favorites. Republican organization leaders and workers are giving no heed to the effort of the local Democratic machine to create dissension among them. They know quite well that the ma chine has enough troubles of its own and all the fairy stories about what this Republican group and that will do to each other are exciting more amusement than anything else.
