Jellyfish Negativeness Most Dangerous Substitute For Christianity By William T. EIIU Gelatinousness Is the commoneit and most dangerous substitute for Chris tianity currant to-day. A Jellyfish nega tiveness, which Is as timid as a musk rat, passes current as goodness. In some minds piousness and splnelessness are, synonyms. A common Idea of goodness Is not to disagree with any body, even with the devil himself. Our grandfathers wer called Dissenters, but tttelr grandchildren are of the creed called Assenters. We agree with every body and everything, from the proposi tion that God and man were both ori ginally "in the yolk of an addled egg." to the familiar doctrine that "what ever Is, is right," and that to be popu lar Is the chief end of man and wo man. Although It may be sheer bosh, the newest Ism and spasm may get a re spectful and sympathetic hearing from Christian people. "After all," says the 'current notion, "It does not matter what i you believe, so long as you try to be .wind." Therefore, the latest colored fakir from Bombay, If he be at all clever can get a large following, a fat living, and much sweet adulation from \ Eoston women who have "outgrown" | the illiberal creed of their Puritan for | bears. No cult is too silly to find a vogue, be It the religion of walking naked through the grass in the sun light. or of breathing by a certain rote. | or of entering into the silence of a su ! preme Egoism, or the burning of in cense to the sun. or the worship of neuulous Mind, or the Hinduism of I transmigration, or—but what is the ' use of trying to catalog all cur fol | lies? 1 Any earnest chronicler of the times j must confess that, as a whole, our so i elety Is Intellectually enervated. M'e ] are not sura what we believe. Boston | and New York axe almost as ready to ; hear a Hindu Yogi as a "Billy Sunday. Old religions, new religions, compara tive religion, no religion—all are pretty much alike to your modern man or wo < man. This is true to a degree that would alarm the average minister. If jhe knew it, of many persons within i the churches, as well as of the great | mass outside. Present-day Christians. ; owing perhaps to a lack of leadership, i are willing to let many precious in j heritances go by default. They sur i render the Christian Sabbath almost j without a protest. So also they let the Bible go from the public schools. The proposition that this is a Christian na tion, is likewise permitted to go by default. The integrity and inspiration of the Bible is yielded quite as easily, s Once let anybody—be he a soapbox orator, or a tledging college professor-V j say that "the consensus of modern I scholarship affirms"—and shoo! the 'Christians run like chickens before a ; hawk, without waiting to see whether I the bird that affrights them may not ■ be only a crow. I When to Stand I'p nnd Fight | Opportunely, the Sunday schools of ; the are this week called Into the school of study of old Paul of Tar sus. to learn to stand up and contend for the truth. As this lesson and many other New Testament passages make clear, controversy may be a Christian , duty. The early church fathers were irreat controversalists. Truth v-as so precious In their eyes that they would be alienated from friends and homes, and even from life itself, for its sake. There is something majestic about the spectacle of those great intellects battling over doctrinal and ecclesias tical points. We have entered into the J 1- ' eritance they left, but we have for gotten their militancy. I wonder If the reader of these lines can, on the instant, name a single great Christian : eontroversalist In North America to day. a champion of the truth as it is In Christ Jesus? In the past there have been the men who have made Christen dom their debtors. Controversy on a high plane, which will not dodge or mistake any facts, nor impugn the motives of a brother, is one of the essential methods of , Christian Progress. There is a sense in which every Christian leader and teacher should, like Paul, be a eontro versalist. I hasten to add that Christian con troversy is as different from church squabbles and denominational bicker ings and petty quarrels as an eagle is from a mosquito. There is no war rant in Scripture for the miserable lit tle bickerings which sometimes stultify the life of a congregation. The first qualification of a eontro versalist—as Paul makes clear in his second letter to the Corinthian con- j verts —is an unimpeachable personal record. He must go into court with clean hands. The self-seeker and the money-lover cannot contend success fully for the faith of Christ. That is ' why Paul pointed to his own record in Corinth and elsewhere. He tore aside the mantle of personal reserve, and j showed that he bore In his body the | marks of the Lord Jesus. Pauline con- j duct squared with Pauline doctrine AH during those arduous tent-making days, and through perilous persecutions anri personal sufferings, he had been un- j consciously preparing his credentials i for the great debate. Thus does the everyday duty, well done, prepare us for life's great crises. The Cause of Controversy Like every other pioneer, Paul knew ! the bitterness of seeing others follow i along the .path he had blazed in order 'to wrest nts leadership from him. In addition to gathering the fruit of his labors, they tried to discredit him. Af ter he had established a Christian : church at Corinth, these falsa shep herds came to mislead his flock, for their own advantage. It seems as if always during the church's periods of activity there have been these pretend ers and usurpers, with their special isras and cults, and their criticisms of the church. It is no new plague from which th« church suffers to-day. Claim ing high titles and especial gifts for i themselves, these false apostles had attempted, apparently, to wean the i Corinthian Christians away from Paul, j and to cast aspersions upon his au thority. his ability, and his financial integrity, in the matter of the col lection for the Jerusalem poor. Evi dently. also, these usurpers had con doned unchristian practices on the part of church members, so that they were departing from the strict line of ] morality laid down by Paul. Klp | ling's fable of the moth that corrupt ed a hive of young bees is quite appli cable. Some saints would have gone on whimpering to sympathetic friends, if | 111-treated as Paul was by the Church at Corinth. They would have had a grievance for the rest of their days. Not so Puul. He was of sterner stufT. He knew the place of the grace of resignation, and also the place of mili tant indignation. He could be a suffer ing saint, but he could also be a smil ing soldier with a sword of controversy. Tor he was a first-class fighting man. It seemed to him the more Christian way to give those intertopers at Athens a chance to practice tile virtues of ros- ; Ugnation and humiliation, It Is better 1 &AF RISBUTiLG TELEGRAPH ■■■The New Store of Wm.

STROUSE to wipe out a plague than to flee from i It. Paul was not the sort of citizen who would flee to a pleasant suburb and let the city go to the devil. In stead, he would stay and help clean the city. In this spirit he undertook to enlighten the misled Corinthian Christians, and to contend with their usurping leaders. One Hero's Record I While he offers It with diffidence and opologies, having all of a strong man s dislike for boasting. Paul never theless submits his wn character and achievements as "Exhibit A" In the great controversy. Really the whole case rested on the character of the apostle. i That is why it is such an awesome , thing to be a preacher or a Christian : leader. What if Dwight L Moody had been a grafter and the world had found ;it out. What if Robert E. Speer should ! be dicovered to be an idle, self-seeking lover of money and notoriety? Imagine John R. Mott putting his own comfort and reputation and bank account above i the Christianization of the world! The consequences would be calculations for all Christendom. Whoever dares to accept a place of leadership in Christian servica thereby assuaies a responsibility of living up to the ideals of Jesus that is nothing less than tremendous. A noble Atlanta layman said to me not long since, in discussing the retirement of two lay men from places of Christian leader ship into private employ. I tell you | this sort of thing is having a terrible ■effect upon our laymen. We have followed these men for years, and now they seem to nullify everything they ; have ever taught by turning aside from the big work and looking out for them i selves. As in crusading days, the knight who takes the cross on his arm must surrender private aims and quests. For the Christian is himself a vindica tion of his message and ministry. In this great Corinthian controversy, Paul could submit his life as evidence. Hi s case, freely paraphrased, to show His case, freely paraphrased, to show ;and activities, was like this: "I have been as bold as the best, "1 am anybody's equal as a He brew and Israelite. | "I have been myself a minister of i Christ, | By labors more abundant, 1 By stripe without number, By frequent Imprlsinment, By danger of death many times, "To particularize, here is a part of my record: Five times the Jews beat me with thirty-nine stripes; Three times I have been beaten with Roman rods: Once I was stoned;. Thrice I was shipwrecked, being afloat twenty-four hours in the open sea. I "In my travels I have undergone: " Perils of waters. Perils of robbers. Perils from my countrymen, Perils from the heathen. Perils in the city. Perils in the desert. Perils in the sea. Perils among false brethren. In weariness often. In travail often. In watchlngs often. In hunger often. In fastings often. In cold often, In poor clothing often. Besides all the foregoing adversi ties, there is that which cometh upon me dally, anxiety for all the church." i Really, that closed-the case. A mere' recital of the incontrovertible facts showed that Paul was everything tor Christ and the brethren, and nothing for himself. He had traveled the tllnty road to Cavalry. He had been crucified with Christ. The brand-marks of the 1 Liord Jesus were on his feet, which nad traveled for him; on his hands, which had ministered for him: on his brow, which had thought for him, and on his heart, which had been broken over the needs of the world. The man was fall proof of the message. The tlnal argument for Christianity in e\co case is the Christ-like Christian. COL ROOSEVELT ATTACKS WILSON Has Failed to Protect American Rights He Declares in Maine Speech Lewiston. Me., Sept. 1. —Theodore Roosevelt, speaking here yesterday, opened hi» Maine campaign in the interests of Charles E. Hughes, the Re publican nominee for the presidency. He attacked the Wilson administra tion in vigorous language, defined Americanism, denounced politico-ra cial organizations, spoke for universal compulsory military training and pre paredness and reviewed the Mexican situation at length. He said in part: I come here to Maine to advocate the election of Charles E. Hughes as President of the United States and the election of a Senate and House of Rep resentatives to support him, and to give some of the reasons why in my judgment it would be a grave misfor tune for the people of the United States to re-elect Mr. Wilson. Americanism a Matter of the Spirit Continuing he said: "Americanism is a matter of the spirit, of the soul, of the mind; not of birthplace or creed. We care nothing as to where any man was born, or as to the land from which his forefathers came, so long as he is whole-hearted ly and in good faith an American and nothing else.

But this is not enough. The events of the last two years have shown that no people can permanently preserve its freedom unless that peo ple is trained to arms. Above all, this is true of a democracy. The en joyment. of right must be hand in hand with the performance of duty, universal suffrage cannot be justified unless it connotes the performance by every voter of full duty to the State both in peace and in war. The man who refuses to fit himself to tight in righteous war for his country is not fit to vote in that country. He bitterly denounced Wilson's so called neutrality: "Such neutrality has been compared to the neutrality of Pontius Pilate. This is unjust to Pontius Pilate, who at least gently urged moderation on the wrongdoers. The President's fine words were used merely to cloak ig noble action and ignoble inaction. All American proud of their country should keenly resent the wrong he thereby did their country. As an American with exceptional interna tional knowledge. • • * A single official expression by the government of the United States, a single sentence denying assent and recording disap proval of what Germany did in Bel gium, would have given to the people of America that leadership to which they were entitled in their earnest groping for the light. It would have ranged behind American leadership the conscience and morality of the neutral world." i On Mexico, Col. Roosevelt said: "President Wilson did not merely kiss the hand that slapped him in the face. He kissed that hand when it was red wtih the blood of American men, women and children, who had been murdered and mutilated with, as President Wilson, through his Sec retary of State, says, "ruthless bru tality." In all this shameful history of Mr. Wilson's dealings with Mexico during the last three years nothing has been more shameful than his conduct at Tampico. Since 1912' we have had four years of a policy which has been an opiate to the spirit of idealism. It has meant the relaxation of our moral fiber. Hor ror of war, combined with a sordid appeal to self-interest and to fear, has paralyzed the national conscience. We have been told that Americans, if they do not wish to be killed, should leave Mexico and should keep off the ocean; that to save a few American lives it is not worth while to hazard the lives of American soldiers; that Mexicans should be allowed to spill blood to their hearts' content; that the European war is no concern of our; that even as between Belgium and Germany we should be neutral not only in act but in sympathy. "The next four years may well be years of tremendous national strain. Which of the two men do you, the American people, wish at the helm during these four years, the man who has been actually tried and tound wanting or the" man whose whole ca reer in public office is a guarantee of his power and good faith? But ono answer is possible, and it may be given by the American people through the election of Charles Evans Hughes as President of the United States.
