IN THE INSTITUTIONAL CHURCH A Development of the Practical Activities. of Christian Leaders 'Sphere of the Church " (Literary Digest.) One of the most notable develop-. nients in the organic life and practical ( activities of the Christian church at j the present day is what has come to be ! known, for want of a better nam-e, as j the Institutional Church. The title is; nnniipfi m those churches that nave made themselves the center of a. clus ter of auxiliary or dependent societies and agencies engaged in charitable, philanthropic, and educational work. They may be found in almost all Pro testant denominations, and in some others. Among the more prominent churches belonging to this distinctive class are Berkeley Temple, Boston; St. Bartholomew's Episcopal and Madison Avenue Presbyterian churches, Isew York; the People's Tabernacle, Jersey City; and the Temple, Philadelphia.! There are enough of them altogether to form a national organization known as the Open Church League, a body which holds its annual convention at Worcester, Mass., during the present month. Some idea of the scope and variety of the work carried on by one of these institutional churches may be gathered from a list of auxiliary socie ties connected with one of them in New York City, as given in the Charities' Directory for 189S. He? we have a charitable bureau, an employment bu reau, ,a kindergarten, a sewing-school, a penny provident fund, clubs or girls, boys, and men, each provided with a gymnasium, reading-room, and baths; a free dispensary, a medical and surg ical clinic, and provision for mothers' meetings, and special services for Ar menians, Chinese and Swedes. The descriptive list alone of the societies in one of these churches occupies more than two full pages in the Charities' Directory. The greater part of them are in operation every day all the year around. One or more separate build ings have been erected and fitted up ex pressly for their use, and several paid superintendents and managers are em ployed. The religious public is not altogeth er agreed as to the wisdom and pro priety of conducting churches on this basis, and they have been severely criticized in some quarters. It is not the business of a church, it is said, to teach people housekeeping, to run banks and employment bureaus, nor to afford means of recreation and amuse ment. The churches that do these things, it is contended, are departing from their proper sphere of action, and weakening their influence as centers of spiritual light and religious teach ing. The New York Evening Post re verts to some of these points in an ed itorial on "Institutional Christianity." After giving a paragraph summing up the institutional .work of Berkeley Temple, Boston, and some other churches, the Evening Post says: "Every city in the land has its tab ernacle, or temple, or People's church, or plain, every-day Trinity church, or First Presbyterian, which are immense business establishments. The church buildings have lost their old awfulness and shut-up seclusion, and swarm every day in the week with busy teachers and organizers and entertainers and man agers. A divine of the austerer type of Puritan days would be as much at a loss in one of those modern hives of industry that are known as institution al churches as he would be in Vanity Fair itself. "Good or bad, the sweeping change we speak of has come. Wise and good men differ on the question whether it is on the whole a desirable change or not. We think it is. The actual hu man good done by a church that thus holds itself steadily in contact with actual human need must be much greater than that within the reach of one living in the old sacred aloofness. The motives leading to the change of attitude may be mixed; there may have been in it a feeling that 'some thing must be done' to attract people to church; people who have yielded to the new attractions may often be lovers of amusement rather than lovers of godliness. That does not greatly mat ter. If the net result is a benefit, both to the community and the church, we need inquire no further. But the trans formed church certainly has had, and will yet have more strikingly, a pro found influence upon the habits and mental attitude of those within her pale especially the clergy, and upon some aspects of it we wish to remark. "It has brought to prominence the business type of clergyman. He has al ways existed, here and there, in a more or less developed form, but the Institu tional Church has made him indispen sable. The superintendent of a factory, or the manager of a department store, can have hardly severer demands made upon his executive ability than has the head of a modern church with all its multiplied philanthropic activities. He must be able to thread his way through a maze of affairs, and keep each clear. His tact and energy are constantly ap pealed to, and the planning of his week's campaign is like the marshaling of an army corps. We have all seen him this modern typical clerical ad ministrator of an immense ecclesiastic al business. His alert precision of manner and impatience of all dawdling devastators of his day would well be come the manager of a railway. "Now, the clerical character can not THE CROWN PRINCE CONSTANTIN.

He -will return to Denmark, -where his father is king. Constantin is not popular with the people whose king he is to be. The king of Greece receives an annuity of $250,000. be thrown into this business crucible and come out unaltered. It must lose on the reflective side. Speculative the ology has little chance with a man who has six committee meetings in the af ternoon and three night schools to visit. We need look for no Thomas Aquinases to be developed in the stir of the institutional church. Theolog ical 'giants' will became more excep tional than ever, if the People's taber nacles grind on "with their thousand wheels. Then, too, the distinctive note of the true preacher will tend to be lost, we should say, in the rattle of machin ery. The old bishop who was asked by a young clergyman how many sermons a week he ought to be able to preach, replied, 'One certainly; two, if you have plenty of time; but any fool can preach three.' The sermons of a man whose time throughout the week is devoured by the complex business of an Institutional Church are too apt to be of the kind which any fool can preach. "The ultimate remedy, we imagine, wil' be found in a further specialization of tne work of the clergy Some must give tiieir time to 'serving tables'; oth ers, with the gift for it, must be the writers, the theologians, the preach ers. THE ENGINEERS. Argument for the Proposed "Person nel" Act. "Engineering News" argues in be half of the Navy Personnel. Bill, and says: "The successful conduct of our late war by the naval arm of the ser vice is largely due to the thorough training of our naval officers, and their methods and their success have wrung praise from unwilling naval authori ties. 'But the handling of the engines of the Oregon, in her unprecedented sea voyage, and the serving of the guns at Manila and Santiago, were alike the wprk of engineers, and the results reached were alike due to mechanical means; under these conditions there seems to be no good reason why any distinction should be made in pay or position between the officers who did the one piece of engineering work and those who did the other. The evolu tion in naval warfare has made engi neering knowledge the essential, all important requisite in the naval officer. Every warship must now have its prac tical mechanics, electricians and train ed assistants of all kinds, and men of this class now form the bulk of the crew. But just as the old naval com mander was a sailor in command of sailors, it now requires an engineer of a high degree of training to properly direct his mechanical assistants and to handle a ship in which practically ev ery movement is controlled by intri cate mechanism."
