"FORTIFIED CANAL STRATEGIC FOLLY" Reynold Blight of the Los Angeles Fellowship Scores the Plan for Guns at Panama LESSON IN THE NEUTRAL SUEZ Waterway. He Declares, Can Be Adequately Protected by Treaties with Nations PThe question, "Shall America fortify the Panama canal?" was answered In the negative by Reynold E. Blight, minister of the Los Angeles Fellowship, in a vigorous prelude yesterday morn ing. His impassioned appeal to Ameri ca to lead the world ln a movement toward universal disarmament was re ceived with applause by the large au dience. He said in part: "We are spending over $350,000,000 to build the Panama canal. It will be a triumph .of engineering, a splendid monument to American genius, and it will be of inestimable value to the entire world. The opening of the canal to commerce will be one of the epochal events of history. TREATIES ALONE REQI'IRED "The fortification of the Panama canal would be a strategic folly. Forti fied, it would be the shining mark for attack in case of war. A well-directed lire from the guns of the enemy would reduce this magnificent and beneficent work to a heap of ruins In a few hours. Unfortified and protected by treaties among the nations guaranteeing Its perpetual neutrality, it would be a bul wark of national strength. We have a significant and perfect illustration in the Suez canal, owned by Great Britain. Although Europe has been shaken again - and again during the last cen tury by mighty wars, the great canal fhas been safe from attack, its neutral . ization removing it from the war zone. Whatever danger there may be from attack by alien enemies, it is greatly intensified by fortifications on the canal. ' GUNS WOULD INVITE WAR "The fortification of the canal would be an inexcusable waste of money. It ' is time the people of America awakened to the appalling cost of the present war fever. James A. Tawney, chairman of the house committee on appropriations, recently made the startling declaration on the floor of congress that 71 per cent of the federal revenues were being spent for past wars on ln preparation for future conflict. For the past eight years America's 'armed peace,' has cost the astounding sum of $1,072,000,000, ex ceeding the national debt by $16.5,000,000. This is three times the cost of tarrying out the whole irrigation program con templated within a generation. Now It is proposed that we add many millions for extensive fortifications to the canal, fifty millions for the initial expenditure and millions for maintenance. Th« •canal must be adequately policed, but maintaining order is a far different matter from military fortification. "Europe groans beneath the crushing burden of militarism. It is a merciless bondage, clogging the wheels of prog ress, demoralizing industry, levying a frightful tribute upon commerce and reducing the people to the conoltion of serfs, cowering beneath the whips of the war lords. The nations of the world are appealing in agony to the brave, strong, idealistic, young giant of America to lead the way toward uni versal peace and disarmament. This is her splendid opportunity to prove her confidence in her sister nations, to demonstrate the purity of her national ambitions, to show her true belief in the principles of justice and brother hood; and to affirm her faith In the ' future. If she rises to the splendid pos sibilities %t this test she will set the cause of peace forward fifty years. May the blemish of mounted guns never mar the glorious achievement at Panama. VISITING PRIEST GIVES SERMON AT HOLY CROSS The solemnity of the feast of Exalta tion of the Holy Cross was observed with elaborate services yesterday morning at the Church of the Holy Cross, which was also the closing ot a triduum held in the parish in honor of the patronal feast of the church. The Rev. T. F. Fahey, the pastor, was celebrant of the mass. A special musical program was rendered and the altars were elaborately decorated with red American Beauty roses. The Rev. P. McLaughlin of Hanford, who has preached the sermons of the triduum, preached at the solemn mass yesterday. He said in part: "The church of God celebrates the exaltation of him .who died for us on the cross. By the glorious death on the cross Christ triumphed over sin and death and established his kingdom over all souls and reigns by grace in the present life and by glory for all eternity. "Our religious teachings must be false if they come from any other source than Christ on the cross. Our holy church presents to the faithful the cross with Christ on it—we dp not separate Christ and the cross. "The sentiments of St. Paul preach ing to the Galatlans, 'with Christ I am nailed to the cross,' should be our sentiment today. He warns them against sensual or worldly minded people whom he called enemies of the cross of Christ. How happy are we today who are devoted followers of Christ and the teachings of him from j tho altar of the cross.' How cheerfully we embrace the trials of life, because the holy virtues of poverty, obedience, humility, mortification of the flesh, as taught by Christ, are the instru ments of joy in our battles with the enemies of the cross. What the cross and its history condemn are pride, ambition and avarice. The fundamen tals of our holy religion we find beau tifully set in the beatitudes, every one of them defended by you when practicing what our holy church teach es." Father McLaughlin congratulated the parish on the work accomplished and the happy relations of pastor and people, saying that few parishes en joyed happier conditions than those of the Holy Cross, He commented with fervor on the work being com pleted for the new parish school and hall. $2000 having been raised during September for this new enterprise by the congregation. At the close of the mass Father Fa hey, the pastor, announced that the Sisters of St. Joseph from St. Mary's academy would have charge of the new parochial school which will be opened one week from today with a rapacity for more than 200 children. Y. M. C. A. AND Y. W. C. A. TO HOLD SPECIAL SERVICES Secretaries Luther and Miss Ta tham Deliver Addresses The Y. M. C, A. and the T. W. C. A. were represented in a special associa tion service yesterday morning at the First Congregational church. This church devotes one Sunday each year to the associations, and yesterday D. E.

Introducing Miss Chappelle and Miss Stone, secretaries of the association. The service was attended by*a large number of members. M'KINLEY'S HOME LIFE THEME OF DR. LOCKE Minister Pays Tribute to the Late President's Home Love and Religious Character Dr. Charles Edward Locke, at the First Methodist Episcopal church, last evening, delivered the • second section of a sermon on "A Recent Pilgrimage to the Home and Tomb' of William McKinley." Dr. Locke spoke last even ing of McKinley as "a statesman, a churchman and a home man." "Nearer, My God, to Thee," and "Lead, Kindly Light," and other songs which were favorites of the lamented president were sung. The text was, "A devout man and one that feared God with all his house," from Acts, 10:2. "In the magnificent memorial win dows In McKlnley's home church the martyred president," said Dr. Locke, "Is compared to the brave centurion, Cor nelius," who lived in Caesarea in the days when It was revealed to Peter that the Gospel of Jesus Christ was for the Gentiles as well as for the Jews. "When McKinley came to be presi dent he showed how clear was hi* knowledge of the deep and abiding principles of profound statesmanship. He saw and outlined the policy which must be pursued with regard to trusts and great corporations, as well as of reciprocal relationships with foreign nations. His honored successor ln carrying out the McKinley ideas has made for himself a phenomenal place in American statecrapt. Mr. Cortelyou, who was McKlnley's private secretary 1 during all of his term in the White House, says: " 'The theory that Mr. McKinley sub ordinated his judgment to the will of Senator Hanna or of anybody else is a delusion. He was always the master. He had the gentle persistency of Lin coln. I was with him night and day, and I know that he was always the master.' "McKinley was a home maker, a home lover, a home defender. As son, brother, husband and father, he was dutiful, affectionate and gallant. He was the product of a happy home, and his knightly sword was always un sheathed ln defense of the fireside and all Its divine associations. And when at his inauguration he stooped and kissed his proud and happy mother, he only gave hack to her the token of knighthood which she had first given to him. A mother's kiss! Oh, holy accolade! ' • "In his religious life William Mc- Kinley was an exemplary Christian gentleman. He reverenced the Sabbath, he loved to pray and was often at a throne of grace, he read and studied the Bible and taught and lived its beautiful precepts. He was a man of unbounded faith in Christ and pos sessed a child-like confidence in the Father of Nations. In the trying ordeals of public life the path was well beaten between his needy heart and the throne of the infinite. "In the death of William McKinley the pulses of a new heroism are throb bing in the hearts of our countrymen. This was expressed by a man in the suburbs of Buffalo, who said, 'William McKinley died more like Jesus Christ than any man in history,' and he there upon, for the first time, forsook his unbelief and adopted the faith of Mc- Kinley. "William McKinley will live forever In the love and memory of this na tion The story of his life of achieve ment, of his tragic death and of raptur ous ascension will be Immortalized In song and statue and sermon, but those memorials will be the most enduring which consist of human lives emulating and Imitating the superb Christian character of our martyred hero. CLAIMS VITAL TRUTHS DIVINE REVELATIONS In his sermon on "Revelations from God" yesterday morning at the First Unitarian church, , Rev. E. Stanton Hodgin said in part: .**,., "Every discovery of a vital truth is a revelation from 3od. Suci revela tions come as readily to those having at fcxed conception oi God as to those who do. The Magna Charts, and the Declaration of Independence were as truly revelations from God as the laws of Moses. Bach in its own time fur nished humanity with a set of princi ples around which it could rally and which filled it with high purpose. Each furnished a starting point from which great Institutions have sprung that have blessed mankind. Charles Darwin and Herbert Spencer did fqr their time what the book of Genesis had done for preceding ages and their writings were as truly inspired by God as any tint ever came from the pen of man. They furnished man with a new point : of vision from which to Interpret life. It means a great Impetus forward. "The greatest need of our ago Is a clear-cut conviction that there Is a divine plan permeating all things and the sense of responsibility that such a conviction carries with it. The worst symptom of our time is a certain shal low skeptislsm that causes so many to feel that this is a sort of easy going, loose jointed universe, that there Is nothing in the nature of things that holds one to any strict account for the course he pursues, that it doesn't mat ter much whether one leaJs a partic ularly straight life or not, so lie avoids extremes; that to drift along as others do, to exercise some care not to vio late many of the superficial conven tionalities of life, is about the most sat isfactory life to live. We n.vi more of the straight up and down conscious ness that divine law permeates all, that there is a plan of life that can not be violated without briigin.^ dis aster, that 'whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap;' that right eousness alone exalteth a people. We need the conviction that our workshops and places of business are temples of the living God and that our activities and transactions there are the only ac ceptable worship." LOS ANGELES HERALD: MONDAY MORNING. SEPTEMBER 19, 1910. DEFINES MEANING OF WORD H-O-M-E Dr. Brougher Preaches Last of Sermons on 'How to Be Happy Tho' Married' ILLUSTRATES WITH ACROSTIC Claims Society Becoming More and More Insincere and Inhospitable Last night Dr. J. Whiteomb F.rough er preached at the Auditorium to a crowded house the last sermjii In the series son "How to He Happy Though Married." His subject was "Home, Sweet Home—the Best Place on Earth." Dr. Brougher said in part: "The four letters that spell the little word 'HOME' mean a vastly different thing to different people. To one it stands for unrest, and quarrels, and wrangles, and nagging, and sin, and sorrow; to another It stands for all that Is sacred and sweet, kind and gentle, loving and holy. To one it is a hell on earth; to another lt is a heaven. The home at Bethany was the vestibule of heaven. Let us try to catch the' secret of its happiness. I believe we may flnd them in the let ters which compose the name 'H-O-M-E.* SOCIETY IS ICY "1. The letter 'H' stands for genuine 'Hospitality.' This Is one of the chief characteristics of all the homes men tioned in the Bible. In Christ's day and country all the homes were open to stranger or friend. This was pre eminently the characteristic of the home at Bethany. Here Jesus often came to rest' and to enjoy the com pany of Mary, Martha and Lazarus. But hospitality is not greatly prac ticed today. As the cities increase In size, real homes decrease, and many live in apartments and flats, with no room to raise children or entertain their friends. Society is becoming more and more Inhospitable. Fre quently it Is a great social sea. in which Icebergs grind against Iceberg*, and you feel much like an icicle ln its swirl. There are places In this warm climate where any one can be given a chill in five minutes. A warm grasp of the hand is an insult, the sin cere expression of good feeling is rude, the hearty lough is considered the sign of an empty head, and all real, genuine sincerity Is 'out of place.' ■ < FLATS DECEITFILNESS "To feel at home there must be sim ply the smile and the 'E' and the 'Oh' and the 'Ah,' the 'kangaroo bend' and the 'monkey handshake,' and the lying expression that you have had a most 'dee-llghtful' time,' while your hostess returns the' lie by saying she hopes that you'll 'come again.' But thank God there are true homes which give us' still an expression of genuine hos pitality. They can be found In all parts of the country, and many are still found here in Los Angeles. There ought to be more of them where Christ im always welcome, and where his spirit controls all its activities. "2. The letter 'O' stands for 'One ness' of purpose and aim. At the mar riage altar the preacher pronounces the couple 'one.' Which one is some times uncertain. But every true home should be bound together by the ties of genuine love. Too much cannot be said today against marriages made for money, or the basing of the home life upon anything but the purest and truest love. Standing in the divorce court, or reading the newspapers, one cannot help but feel that much that is called love today has no foundation in fact. A home that is cemented to gether upon a basis of lust or passion or money is bound to fail. "3. The letter 'M' stands for mutual helpfulness. Home is the place where every member of the family should find recuperation and renewed strength for life's battles. Life is a warfare; home is where the father and his little army equip themselves for the day's battle. What a blessing it is to have some place to stack your arms, to drop your knapsack, and flnd rest from life's cares and struggles. Here Is the place where we should bear one another's burdens. Father and mother, son and daughter, should each be working to make home happy for the other. "4. The letter 'E' stands for 'Ever lasting joy and happiness. The ideal home, after all, should be a type of heaven. If it is to be, Jesus Christ must be the center of that home. The chief characteristic of heaven will be the presence of him who died to re deem a lost world." NATIVES DESTROY SHOPS IN CHINESE TURKESTAN Treasurer Believed to Have Been Victim in Uprising VICTORIA, B. C, Sept. 18.—News was brought from Peking by the steamer Empress of China, of a serious uprising in Chinese Turkestan, where man of the shops have been burned at the provincial capital.
