MEET TO SOLVE WORLD UNREST Industrial Problems to Be Dis cussed From Every Angle at New York Sessions XPW York, Oct. 2.—Representa tives of seventy-five Evangelical denominations met to-day in the Hotel Pennsylvania for a two-day conference on the present industrial and social unrest. Dr. Fred B. Fisher, chairman of the industrial relations department of the Inter church World Movement of North America, in opening the first session, characterized the conference as marking an epoch in religious his tory and the first step in an active and united participation of protes tantism in the industrial crisis. "Human life has prior rights over every other value," he said, "and the failure of the Christian world to recognize this simple fundamental Christian teaching is the cause of the present industrial chaos." To Discuss Problems The industrial problems will be discussed from every angle during the conference, which was called by the Interchurch World Movement, whose platform, adopted by its gen eral committee last week at Cleve land, calls for energetic activity by the Evangelical churches of the country in the solution of social and economic questions. The findings of the conference probably will be laid Constipated Children Gladly Take "California Syrup of Figs" For the Liver and Bowels Tell your druggist you want genuine "California Syrup of Figs."

Leading figures in the religious, industrial and financial world are attending the conference. Taft Invited to Speak Among those who have been invit ed to speak are: Ex-President Taft, Secretary of Labor Wilson, Frank A. Vanderlip, Howard Coonley, Frank Morrison, secretary of the American Federation of Labor: War ren E. Stone, head of the Brother hood of Locomotive Engineers; Col. Davftl Carnegie, England's represen tative to the Canadian conference on the Whittley system: Bishop F. J. McConnell, of the Methodist Episco pal Church; Frank Crouch, head of the Industrial Commission of the Protestant Episcopal Church; John Willis Baer, moderator of the Pres- byterian General Assembly, and others. The subjects on the program in clude: "The Present-Day Unrest," "Organized Labor Movements," "A Minimum Standard of Living," "Co operative Movements," "Agricultu ral and Migratory Labor," "Racial Relations," "Immigrant Labor" and the "Responsibility of the Church in Industrial Matters." "If the principles of Christianity are applied to the social and in dustrial situation in America our problems will be solved," Dr. Fisher said. "The church must insist that the Christian ethics that have stood the test of two thousand years and have been the standard of Christian civi lization here and abroad must be applied to corporate as well as to in dividual relationships. "It is high time the church ele ments of this country took a hand In the industrial situation. We have been adopting resolutions repeating platitudes and drawing up state ments of principles, the only results being to take them from our archives and revise them to suit some new crisis. Church Alone Silent "The ex-bartender, politician, lawyer, employer, worker, farmer and economist have had their say. The church alone has been Bilent. This apathy and aloofness on the part of the Christian organizations cannot longer be permitted. The churches must act. "The present problems transcend a mere economic question. Great moral issues are involved. The pres ent crisis is the inevitable outgrowth of a system of industry operated for profit rather than for human wel fare. There must be an application of the Christian principles of stew ardship of power and possession." The conference will close to-mor row night.
