PULPIT UTTERANCES "THE SEAT OF AUTHORITY IN RELIGION" Burt Bates Howard's Interesting Dis sertation—"Capital and Labor" by Bey. B. W. B. Tayler In the First Presbyterian church yes terday morning Rev. Burt Estes How ard preached on the theme "The Seat of Authority in Religion," from the text | I Corinthians, 11:11-12: "For who among men knoweth the things of a man, save the spirit of the man, which is in, him? I Even so the things of God no or.c comes to know, except thespirit of God . . ." saying in part: "All men are religious. The few exceptions only serve to prove the rule and advertise themselves as monstrosities. Whatever form of iV.ig ion a man or a people holds. Whether ;-. be the rudest fetishism or the moat spiritual Christianity, it is invested with a most subs:ant:ai authority. "All faiths have their final standard! to which is referred ail matters of belief and of praet.ee :'.: determination. So we have all bee:: casting about for a sort of spiritual yard-stick by which to take the moral measure of things. The effort has been less to gain spiritual discern- j ment ar.d moral insight than to secure j a sort of mechanical contrivance to take ; their place. But the seat of authority in religion has been marked by a most persistent ignoring of the spiritual in tuition of the man himself, a blind and blundering rejection, of the highest and surest faenlty of the human soui. "In Christendom these attempts to se cure an infallible l standard have re suited in fixing the supreme authority In religion either In the church—as dc the Romanists; or in the Bible—as do the Protestants; or in the Bibie —as do extreme rationalists. Does infallibility lie with the church, with the Bible, With reason, or with all three combined? The determination is much simplified by a consideration that is usually over- looked—namely, that in the very r.atur of things there can be no infallible au thority either in a corporation, a liter ature or in pure reason. There have been scores of things held by the church which the grim facts of science have proven fa'se. The charred bones of th? martyrs, who were first cauterized and afterward cannonized. are a poor argu ment for the infallibility of the church. "Truth gets Into the thought and life of the world through human channels. The great prophets' of the world have been men of like passion* with the rest of us. No truth, therefore, gets into human life that does not partake of the liabilities of the human agent through which it flinds expression. All revela tion is partial and incomplete, This same blending of the divine and th? limited human is found in the Bible: and no book was ever written which has given rise to so many divergent opin ions, theories and beliefs. The Bible Is God's book for man, written with a man's' pen and in a man's tongue. Out of its pages divine truth flashes and flames, kindling the soul of men into a holy Are. It Is not, therefore, that the Bible must be given up, but the theory, of universal Infallibility and Inspira tion, which places. Esther on a level with Isaiah and exalts a page of imprecation.* —as the 109 th Psalm—to the rank o:' the Sermon, on the Mount.. "There is a wide difference between granting to a book authenticity and granting to it infallibility; and while investing the Bible witi, authority one must yet insist that the ultimate author ity lies elsewhere. We neve-r can be lieve that such a passage as this, from the 137 th Psalm, "Happy is he that taketh and dashfth his little one? against the rock," is in anywise Indic ative of the true spirit or heart of God It is because we have too long Insisted on the universal inspiration and infalli bility of the book that we have created an army of serious skeptics. "In ord.?r to get what God is trying to speak to men. we must appeal past the" letter of the Bible to the spirit In it thai attests itself to our own diviner selves. For, after all is said, it is the man him self who is the final authority, not the: church nor the book. In nature there is no force- but God's; in conscience yet unspoiled there is no light save his. There is no rule for separating what is divine and authoritative except the tests by which in moral and spiritual things we know the true- from the false, the holy from the unholy External criteria— physical rules for finding spiritual things—there can be none. The ulti mate appeal is not located in a corporate body, a book, or In a confession of faith; but In the organ of spiritual sense through which each one of us interprets these va.-ious symbols for himself. "The truest insight a man can get comes when he appeals past the churches, ar.d the books, and the con fessions—ail of them man-made—to the divine spirit that loves to temple ir, every sincere soul. Jesus was ail the time throwing the man back upon h : s own critical faculty of mora! judgment. He preached the fatherhood of God in order to get men to lift their 'hearts to him. The object of Jesus and of Chris tianity was to secure for men the spirit ual liberty of children df God. God is not anxlo'.s to save unto himself an in stitution, or a book, but a race of sons "For that reason the larger part of the master's ministry is given up to teach-j in.tr men how to use their own spiritual : sense. And the promise he left them as he passed out of their life was that presently a spirit would possess them that would enable them to know the truth. Paul lays a mighty emphasis or, the spiritual intuition: "What mar know-th the things of a man but th-: spirit of the man which is in him"—and a man does know spiritual truth, just im the measure in which he opens his life to the sweetest influences of flu best and the holiest that he knows There is no need of media or agencies; the Bible is a lamp unto the feet and a light unto the spirit; but higher than all is the passing of a life into the pres ence of the great spirit, where a mar talks race to face with God. And wherever a soul has spiritual ears to hear, the deep of God's life calls unto the deep of man's life; his truth, a still, small voice, singing its way through the dark, a love-song for the listeners, a gospel for the homesick." FIRST CHRISTIAN CHURCH Rev. A. C. Smither on "Helps and Undergirding" Hey. A. C. Smither preached yester day upon "Helps amd Underglrding," Acts xxviiil". These are nautical term?, said the speaker, suggest the thought that life is a voyage, that time is a broad sea over whose waters all must pass either to a haven of endless peace or down to the realms of endless despair. There is but one true chart of these mys terious waters over which all must trav el. This Is found in the word of God. There is but one pilot who is familiar with the places of danger. This is Jesus, the heavenly pilot. Every life that is> set adrift by the divine hand upon thii sea bears a precious cargo, for the wealth of the heart and soul and mind of man is beyond computation. In the instance of the context of this scripture when their bark was storm driven and their ship was threatened with disruption, they "used helps, un dergirding the ship," that their lives am! cargo might be saved. So in the Ohris • tian voyage over the wild waters of life, "helps and uudergirding" must often be used to save the traveler from destruc tion. Faith and confidence, trust in God is a mighty help in every hour of trial. Let us be trustful of God. Prayer is another great help in time of need. No more abiding help than prayer can. be used. The church of Jesus Christ in its service, its fellowship, its comfort ing promises, is a PUStSining power w hen the fascinations, the seductions of sir. ar.d evil roll in upon the sou! of man The church of Jesus Christ stands as a Gibraltar, defying the waves of sin and death. To be firmly planted in this church is to be.unswervingly sustained Let us use the helps for undctgirdiny when the storms shall rage. Often when the storms sweep down upon the voyager to the haven of eternal rest, some of the cargo must be over thrown, lest we sink from its weigh: Our property, our possessions, must often be given up. Business alliances or entanglements must often be forsak en, lest they bring us ruin. Companion ships that are detrimental to Christian life and faith must be abandoned, thrown overboard, lest their influence shall car ry us down to death. Many lives are carried down to ruin because they ait weighted down by evil habits and. com panions. ST. JOHN'S EPISCOPAL The Rector Considers the Problem of Labor and Capital Rev. B. W. R. Tayler, rector of St. John's, preached last evening from the parable of the laborers in the vineyard: "Didst thou not agree with me for a penny?" St. Matthew xx.l 3. Were this parable studied more, said the preacher, it would go far towards settling the great question of labor versus capital. This parable lays down the principle that wages Is a matter of contract be tween employer and employe, and' its equity is based upon the agreement made between the two parties. A mar possesses the inviolable right and hu man liberty of rejecting an offer of wages; but after he has accepted it, it It dishonest and immoral to demand as a right more than the contract price. Il is equally dishonest and immoral to leave the work undone w hen he has un dertaken, for a certain remuneration to d-o it Conversely, no employer has any moral right to discharge an em ploye until his contracted term expires, unless he is not giving satisfaction in his work. There is no doubt that the "rights of labor" are tangible, well defined rights, but it is well sometimes to call attention to other rights, viz: the "rights of capital." Capital ar.d labor are twin giants, born of the lawful wed lock between energy ar.d enterprise. The man who works with his hands is not the only laborer. The scientist un raveling the secrets of nature is a labor ing man. The physician, out among his patients at all hours of the night, is pre eminently the laboring man of the cen tury. The clergyman is a laboring man, working oftentimes for less per actual hour than the skilled mechanic. The clerk, who has to stand behind the coun ter from ten to twelve hours a day, is a laboring man. Every one who is not an idle loiterer on life's wayside, like the spendthrift son of the millionaire or the lazy tramp who shuns the woodyard, is a laboring man. And to every one of these, laboring men there lies the broad opportunity of reaching up to greater en deavor ar.d greater success. Industry, thrift and perseverance will crown with success any sphere of work and labor, and it is an idle cry that cap ital and labor represent antagonistic classes. They are only antagonistic when they have been made mutually dis trustful of each other, and the distrust is caused, not by the real laboring men themselves, but by the ioud-mouthed demagogue w hose sole occupation Is the development of those flexible muscles which lie at the roots of their organs of volubility. It is true that there are rich men who, in the enjoyment of their riches, pay lit tle heed to the cries of the poor and who oppress the hireling in his wages. We recognize this and denounce it because it is in violation of the principles of Christianity. But is that any reason why they should be threatened with the confiscation or destruction of their property? Is it not their own? Have they not a right to do as they will with their own? However much we may ad vocate and preach philanthropy and Christian generosity, we have no right to compel a man to give a cent for purposes which are matters for his own judgment and discretion to determine. That principle holds good with regard to his employment of labor. No one has the right to dictate to an employer as to whom he should employ or discharge. He pays the wages and he has the right to select his men. He cannot compel any one to agree to his terms, but he has the right to specify them. He as sumes all the risk of loss. It is his cap ital which is invested and involved. In these days when the laboring man ..: so rich in the sympathies of the public let us remember the poor capitalist. Many of them are the world's philan thropists. The principles' which our Sa vior enunciated in this parable are prin ciples for all time, and are not meant to be superseded by novel and untried codes of socialistic propaganda. When the employer of labor or the publisher of a newspaper, or the proprietor of a busi ness Is dictated to by outsiders, it is a piece of arrogant and impertinent pre sumption. It is foreign to the spirit and genius of American liberty. It is for eign to the teachings of Jesus Christ. Ninety dollars pays well for a guess.

LOS ANGFT.ES HERALD: MONDAY MORNING, OCTOBER 4, J897 IRRIGATION CONGRESS POOR ATTENDANCE BUT FAIRLY SATISFACTORY RESULTS Bryan Made a Telling Speech—Gov ernor Holcomb a Striking Fig ure—Tucker's Scheme Special Correspondence to The Herald. LINCOLN, Neb., Sept. 30,—The results accomplished at the sixth national irri gation congress are fairly satisfactory, but the attendance has not been large, although from most states it was rep resentative. The people of Lincoln, through its mayor, ar.d the state of Nebraska, through its governor, and the chancel lor ot tne state University, weicumea me delegates lm a most hearty and cordial manner. The sessions of the convention were held in the chapel of the state univer sity ar.d they were all fairly well at tended. The papers read were upon sub jects of interest to ail who are residents or land holders, present or prospective, in those sections of the country which have been reclaimed by the application of water. The presiding officer cf the congresr was- c-x-United States Senator Josepli M. Carey of Wyoming. Senator Carey is a gentleman of ability and he maeie an excellent presiding officer. He is a big man, in mind and-body, a man who believes in irrigation, fer he practices it. as he has 600 families upon irrigated lands that he has devele-ped in Wyom ing. BRYAN'S TELLING SPEECH This afternoon the Hon. William J. Bryan delivered a brief address to the I convention. Mr. Bryan was given a hearty reception. The delegates ap plauded when in company with Mrs. Bryan he ente-red the hall, and in the. most unassuming manner possible took a sea; in the body of the hall. When the distinguished American was presented to the congress by Senator Carey he was again given an ovation. His address, like all of his public utter ances, was timely and most appropriate. He did not trench upon any subjects which could be termed not germane to . the congress. He talked ir. a low, well | modulated tone, but with an earnestness that was impressive. Mr. Bryan admitted that he was not posted upon the subject of irrigation but his practical experience and knowl edge gleaned from travel, he said, had caused him to fully realize its import ance. He pointed out the fact that the water ar.d land should go together, anci that they were inseparable. He pleaded for the small landholder and the pro tection that should be given him by the fostering care of the law. Mr. Bryan spoke about ten minute-s. but it was the speech of the convention. At its conclusion he was given another ovation, and until the close of the ses sion he remained an interested listener to all that trransplred. A GENEROUS LANDOWNER Among the distinguished men in at tendance upon the convention was Hon. S. M. Knox of Princeton. 111. Mr. Knox is the owner of 16,000 acres of land in Colorado, Kansas ar.d Nebraska. Dur ing the past five years, owing to crop failures, he has not exacted from his tenants upon whom misfortune fell any rent at all. He told them when they raised something he would, expect rent for those years. But in seasons when the soil failed to produce he did not see how it was reasonable for him to ask or expect anything. There are few men in the country like S. M. Knox of Prince ton, 111., who was the personal friend of Abraham Lincoln. PROMINENT DELEGATES Judge J. S. Emery of Lawrence, Kas.. was also one of the prominent partici pants in the deliberations of the con gress. Judge Emery was one of the early settlers of the Sunflower state. He-has always been to the front in public move ments. The judge Is contemplating taking up his residence in Southern Cal ifornia. C. B. Booth* of Los Angeles, who was the president of the congress elected at Phoenix, acted in that capacity at Lin coln until the new officers were elected Mr. Boothe, as Is well known, is a pol ished gentleman and made an excellent impression that was) an honor to the state. The great state of California was rep resented in the convention by but four delegates. A GENIAL GOVERNOR The state officials of Nebraska ten dered a reception to the visiting dele gates in the senate chamber of the cap tol building or. Tuesday evening. It was a pleasant affair. Governor Holcomb, the chief executive of the common wealth, is 6 feet 3 inches in height and splendidly built in proportion. He was formerly a lawyer and a judge on the district bench. Politically he was a Dem ocrat, but now he is serving his second term as the Populist governor of the state. He is a pleasant gentleman, al though he is not a powerful speaker. He is not popular with his political op ponents, who seem to be very bitter in expressing their opinions of him, both as a man and. a public servant. Booth-Tucker of the Salvation army Is to tell the congress what he proposes to do to populate the arid west with the surplus population of the great cities, reclaiming by irrigation the land which he wishes them to till. He has not yet spoken, but I have talked with him. He is certainly a grand and a noble man, who has conceived a scheme which, if it can be carried out. will be one of the greatest works for the- benefit of humanity that has been consum mated for a long term of years. R. J. C. LANDED AT SAN PEDRO An English Ship Captain Who Didn't Know Port Los Angeles A San Pedro dispatch to the San Fran cisco Examiner of Saturday says that the Southern Pacific company received an open affront Friday from a bluff skipper of an English vessel. The Brit ish ship Ainsdale, 156 days out from Swansea, Wales, came to anchor off San Pedro Friday morning. The ship has a cargo of 3800 tons of coal for the South ern Pacific company. She was chartered to take her cargo to Port Los Angeles. Now here is where the dispute arises. Captain A. Hasler, master of the vessel, contends that San Pedro is a port of Loe Angeles and that w hen he dropped an chor here he had fulfilled his contract. Captain Haeler says he had with him a I shipping directory of 1896, which did not show him that there was any landing place in the neighborhood of Santa Mon ica. "According to the Information I have," said the captain, "there was no wharf near Santa Monica, the old one that used to be there having been washed away by the sea many years ago. If there was any wharf there at all it was a private affair. This was the way the thing ap peared to me." When asked if he would hoist sail and take his ship around to the Southern Pa cific wharf, which lies north of Santa Monica and goes by the name of Port Los Angeles, Captain Hasler said that was something for the Southern Pacific company to do. "If that company wants my ship to discharge up there," said he, "then it can send a tug down hereand tow me up. That question rests entirely with the company." The Ainsdale had a rough parage around Cape Horn. She was buffeted by heavy westerly gales and had eight sails carried away. It is expected a tug from Uncle Coins' Santa Monica wharf will be hustled down after the ship to night.

NATIONAL GUARD NOTES The first state shoot for '97 is finished all of the outside companies having faced the targets as well as the local men. Owing to the recent and numerous changes in the rule's governing these shoots it is not generally understood exactly what the rules governing qual ifications are. "An average of 52 points on the 200-yard range and an average of 45 points on the 300-yard range." This means that if the total of the three scores at the 200-yard range is 52 and that of the- 300-yard range is 45 a man will qualify for the bronze bar. no mat ter If the- 500-yard range is missed every shot, as that range is not counted in shooting for the bronze bar. The rules governing the competition for the silver medals and bars provide that the total score for the three shoots of 135 points, an average of 45 points for each shoot andi an average of 15 points or, each target at each shoot. The positions at each range are differ ent. At the 200-yard range the score is fired standing. At the 300-yard rang: the score may be fired either sitting or kneeling, and the rifle may be braced in any manner most convenient to the marksman When the 500-yard range Is reached the position is lying face down, or either the "Texas grip" or the "sawbuck" posi tion may be used. It is understood, how ever, that the "Texas grip" and the "sawbuck" positions' are barred in com petition for the General Last trophy. The re-cent adoption of the 300 and 500 --yard ranges has precluded, the possibil - ity of any phenomenal scores being made, as the new distances are strange to the marksmen. The 300-yard range Is looked upon as the easiest and the 500-yard range as the hardest of the three. Another obstacle to any extra good scores being made is the light weight of the bullets now used. The bullets weigh but 405 grains, and before they have re-ached the 500-yard target they ger.erally are turning end'over end, and as each turn, de fleets the bit of lead more or less from its proper course a marks man may hold directly on. the bull's-eye and yet fai! to score more than two or three. The highest score made in the brigade at this shoot was by Captain Reynolds, of Company F, scoring 69 out of a pos sible 75. Company X of San Bernardino held their shoot at the new range near Little Mountain last Monday. The highest score was 62, made by Quartermaster Sergeant Waile. Quite a number quali fied for the silver bars. Company E of Santa Paula went after bull's-eyes Tuesday. A large number of the members failed to attend, thus bringing down the company's average. The highest score macie was 49, ar.d, the number of points scored by the thirty men who shot was 697, an. average of 21.78 points. Company B of San Diego shot at the targets on their new range at City park on Wednesday. The highest score was 61, and the company's average 39. It is quite probable that this stand ing, when all of the averages are fig ured up, will be very close to the head of the list; 39 is a hightnark, and the San Diego boys are jubilant over their prospects. Company L of Santa An.a shot last Monday at their range on West Sixth street. For the sixth time this com pany is compelled to seek a new location for their range. The present range, near the Fifth street bridge, has, by the addition of the ."00-yard range, endan gered the life of any one crossing the bridge while target practice is in. pro gress. Wed.nesiiay, the day afte-r' the shoot, a man appeared at thedistrict attorney's office and wanted a warrant for the arrest of some unknown parties,' who, he averred, had taken shots at htm as he was crossing the bridge. An in vestigation brought to light thefact that If a bullet was fired at the 500-yards range it would almost always pass the bridge. The new range is to be located at Red Hill, where the hills will afforti an efficient backstop. It is expected that there will be some changes among the commissioned ami non-commissioned officers in Company L soon. Opinions' are rife as to who the lucky ones will be. The entertiainimer.t committee is work ing for a competitive drill ami dance. The following dates have been set for the shoot this month: Company A, lltn.; Company B, 22nd; Company C, 20th; Company D, 13th; Company E, 19th; Company F, 16th: Company G, 26th; Company H, 18th; Company I, 15th; Company- X, 11th; Company L, 21st, and Company M, 12th.

INTERNATIONAL BROTHERHOOD Lecture on Theosophical Doctrines at Blavatsky Hall H. A. Gibson lectured yesterday at Blavatsky hall on "What We Propose to Do." He said in part: Man must learn to know that he is essentially di vine; that spiritual beings are in reality one on the plane of soul, hence brother hood is a fact in nature and not merely a sentiment. In furtherance of this doctrine there has been formed by Mrs. Tingley an International Brotherhood league with the following objects: First —To help workingmen to realize the nobility of their calling and their true position in life. Second—To educate children of all nations on the broadast lines of brother hood, and to prepare destitute and homeless children to become workers for humanity. Third—To ameliorate the condition of unfortunate women and assist them to a higher life. Fourth —To assist those who have been in prison to establish themselves in hon orable positions In life. Fifth—To abolish capita! punishment. Sixth—To bring about a better under standing between so-called savage and civilized races. Seventh —To relieve human suffering resulting from calamities, and to extend aid and comfort to suffering humanity throughout the world. The International Brotherhool league is entirely unsectarian. Brotherhood being the only binding object of the Theosophical society it is necessary to" realize that "helping and sharing is what botherhood means." Daily Herald—7s cents—Klondike nuggets—s9o.
