NOTED DIVINES HEAR AKED LAUD GOLDEN WEST First Congregational Conference : \;on Pacific Coast Thrilled by -'.* Pastor's Enthusiasm Plans to Upbuild Christian Or ganization Being Discussed • . by the Delegates Three hundred noted divines, repre senting the MM Congregational churches of the United States, are in San Francisco to attend the Ssth an nual meeting of the Congregational home missionary society, which opened last evening and Which will close Fri day evening. During the entire history of the organization this is the first time that an assembly has been held on the Pacific coast. In the opening ad •dresses the visitors praised California and its people and the hospitality that had been accorded them. '* .The particular field of Christian ac tivity taken up by this national society Is the home mission, or the building and , strengthening of the Congrega tional churches In this country. At this gathering will be considered prob lems of church leadership and of work in charities and City missions. For eign , missionary service, while allied with the home missions, is prosecuted only secondarily. . At the first meeting of the society, held last evening In the First Congre gational church, nearly a thousand persons gathered to hear the address of welcome by Rev. Charles F. Aked. the .home pastor, and the response by Rev. 8. H. W'oodrow. president of the national organization. . VwVS' Rev. <>. C. Graver of the Chicago theological seminary, superintendent of the Pano-Norwegian department of the church, opened the meeting with a service of worship. Rev. E. - L. Smith, pastor of the Pilgrim Congre gational church, Seattle, offered the prayer. REV. MR. \ki:d LAUDS WEST Rev. Charles F. Aked, pastor of the First Congregational church, in his address of j welcome to the visiting clergymen lauded the city and the peo ple that he lias come but recently to know ss home mil neighbors. Since coming to San Francisco from his pas torate at Rockefeller's church in New York city. Rev. Mr. Aked has entered Into the spirit of the west with enthu siasm rarely equaled. Sketching the western character in his address, Rev. Mr. Aked said: - "The moral manhood of the people triumphed over earthquake and fire. There has been nothing like It in the history of the human race. Rudyard Kipling, in those days In which the prophet heart ' of him burned like flame, before he degenrated into the banjo bard of the British empire, saw the heroic greatness of this people. As in his "L'Envol," it Is here that the blindest bluffs hold good, the wildest tales are true, men bulk big and life runs large, and there Is no touch of meanness in our blood. This is the glory of our empire of the golden west. "We ought to''be better men and women than we are, purer, more de vout, more spiritual. ■ ■•• "Perhaps you have brought us a mes sage of spirituality, a word of richer service, a note of deeper sacrifice." Referring to the policy of the late j Cecil Rhodes of South Africa, an athe- | ist, yet who nevertheless gave bounte ously toward furthering , missionary work In the Transvaal, Rev. Mr. Aked struck the key note of his speech. With Cecil Rhodes morality meant money,' missionaries meant the elimination of the more costly mounted . police.- To the true Christian the work means sta bility of the social order. It makes for the health and wealth of nations. Con tinuing, he said: ■ *'•'*"Tf*/ COMMON WEALTH ONLY "There is no wealth but common wealth, and you, as mosslonarles, are an asset of incalculable value in the life of the United States. Dogmas grow obsolete and opinions once vener ated may become as nothing, but prin ciples cannot grow old. The principles of Christianity are more firmly- based than the foundations of the earth and more enduring than the pillared firma ment of heaven. These are the things by which nations live. "Wealth'■ does \ not make a nation great. - A country .Is great only, by reason of the number of brave women and pure men It produces. Religion makes men and makes nations." . In response to the address of wel come by Doctor Aked, Rev. S. .11. Woodrow of Washington, D. C, presi- j dent of -the national society, outlined j the far reaching work of. the home missions and the inevitable results of the movement In an address on the I subject "Efficiency at Home." "As we judge a nation by the people j of that " nation that we : have met," be declared, .."so | these people judge Christian nations by the people of these nations that they have met." it Is the. duty of Christian: nations. lie declared, -so to conduct.themselves, first at home and then abroad, in such a manner and In such a spirit as will appeal to the heathen peoples. MISSIONS HU'ilX AT HOME Christian missions must begin at home, which will always be the stra tegic point In the campaign for world evangelization. From the home base come recruits, equipment and supplies, nnd this must continue until Christian ity has triumphed And the foreign mis sions become :; themselves home mis sions.. He said: , • "When Christians and church mem bers are not interested in the salvation of their own household or the people of their own city, they! are not likely to be profoundly^ interested in the sal vation of men at the end of the earth. -"The home base has four Important buy 6,000 Churches Represented At Missionary Conference I Four of the leading delegates to the Congregational home mission conference j [ non> in session in this city. duties: First, it must train and sup ply recruits for Work in the foreign field. In the home church the men and women who become missionaries form their whole conception of Chris tianity and of its worth for mankind as well as learn the spirit and method of the work., MUST BE rMUODOV LESSON "The home cVhurch must christianize our own land so that It will.make a Christian Impression on the merchants, students and travelers who visit our country, as well as upon the millions of emigrants who come here to make a permanent home. ~. :>'f, ; /r-'v;;;.;^;. "Would the first impression made upon a stranger be tfhat we are a God fearing. Christ loving people, with high ideals of character and conduct? A strong, vigorous life in the home churches would" do j more to impress these Incoming strangers with the fact that we are a Christian nation than anything else. .'■('.". "Again, the home - base must chris tianize the forces that work against Christianity in the foreign field. Com merce, with its greed of gain, should be taught not to exploit these simple peo ples. The irresponsible sailor, the avaricious trader and the politician should be reached by a christianizing influence. ';".,"': "Lastly, the home base must' furnish funds and equipment. The church must be kept alive, and when. old and faithful workers die, new workers must be trained to take their places. Only the man of surplus strength can aid his neighbor, and only the church of surplus strength can render service for others. ""^> *':':"f; > : "The work is at the home base. When the churches are in the state of con stant revival, then ' young men and women will consecrate themselves for the work of the ministry at home and missionary service abroad; then the church life will be so dominant that visitors from the ends of the earth will be convinced of the work of our religion;-then commerce will be hon est, politics unselfish and . social life pure; then from intelligent interest O'CONNOR MOFFATT & CO.:, Midweek Specials An attractive list of specially priced items, including many liberal reductions, offers extra buying inducements.

His'subject was "Changed in | the Nature of the Home Mission Prob lem," and in a short address told of the complexity of issues which made the work seem more difficult than it was 50" years ago.
