SUNDAY SCHOOL HEADS FEAR AN INSURGENT MOVE Progressives Submit Ultimatum on the Adoption of New Lesson Series Four Church Denominations Are Opposed to Continuance of Old System ADIFFKRWNCH of opinion, grow ing out <tt (ha prolonged con troversy In the lessons com mittee of the International Sun day school association over the pro posed graded lessons, has become so | acute during the taut few days as to j cause some of the leader* to fear an | Insurgent movement on the part of four strong denominations now con [ tributing to the strength and support |of the association. The Issue waits , upon the final report of th« executive | committee, which will be mad* today, ■ and should the report be unfavorable ; to the pro«;re»lvM there is a probabil ity that tlioup dtnomln&tiona will secede from Hip association, or at least from that part of It whU'h supervises tiir preparation of th« uniform ie«ao:m used throughout the Sunday school* of the country. Revolt Long Standing The revolt has been growing for a long time. Three years ago, at the j Louisville convention, a .large branch of the association, headed by the Metho dist church, the Methodist church South, the Presbyterian church North and the Congregatlonallsts, made formal demand upon the executive com mittee to ratify their plans for graded lessons. They desired to break away from the old uniform series that has served since 1872, Introducing lessons ' j that comply with what is termed the ; general forward or "progressive" church • j movement. According to the ministers of these 1 | denominations, the Sunday school has I been retarded by the association and : has not kept pace with changed con- | ditions. The Louisville convention re fused to adopt the plan, but gave these branches permission to act to work and , frame a graded series to-be used "un- I officially," if desired. Thls year members of the executive committee representing the Baptist and Presbyterian churches in the south and the Canadian churches have bitterly opposed the tendency to depart from the traditional system, and although it Is announced that both sides are will ing to make concession for the good of the association, there are grave doubts regarding the outcome. Open Break Likely Rev. J. T. McFarland, editor of the Methodist publications, said last night that the situation was acute and that If the report were unfavorable there would likely be an open break with the international. Rev. Mr. McFarland said: "There may be enough hard headed businessmen on the committee to recog nize the Impracticability of breaking off at this point our efforts to supply our selves with graded lessons, but at the same time the southerners and the Canadians and sorn* of the northern Baptists are strongly against departure from the traditional system. "We have gone so far with this al ready, and we believe so strongly in the graded lessons, that there is only one course for us. We must change with the times, in spite of what the association does, and if they are against us, we will withdraw and go It alone." pURSE OF RUM IS DENOUNCED White Ribbon Wearers Call on Congress to Foster Temperance Cause That the monster of intemperance, described as the most rampant social evil in the country today, shall be fought to the death by the ballot, and that congress shall be petitioned for prompt passage of the Miller-Curtis bill, now before it, in order that the people's will in the prohibition states may not be nullified by the protecting jurisdiction with which the liquor trade is fostered by the interstate com merce commission, were the sentiments expressed by the 2,000 white ribbon wearers who thronged the Coliseum yesterday and rouslngly resolved to Jo their utmost for the anti liquor cause. The occasion was the meeting of the temperance department of the Inter national Sunday school association and of the anti saloon league, and the speakers were all of national reputa tion in temperance endeavor.

Dreamland rink yesterday afternoon and whom he cheered, pre sumably, by assuring them that there la no hell, at least of the old fashioned brimstone type. He can quote the bible, Old Testa ment and New, for his purposes, and for two hours he spoke with never a moment of hesitation or faltering. Imaginary conversations between him self and various characters, fictitious or rpal, «f one age or another, he car ried on at great length, dealing with nil iuaj«cta with colloquial freedom. Kven's ol ancient days, sacred, his toric or social, he brought up to date and applied to his argument with clever • is>'times witty ease. Ho I ppun his address by compliment- Ing Sun !'i anclsco on having here the International Sunday school convention, with whirl: he Is In no wise affiliated, having no Sunday school work under his Jurisdiction. He urged that the "higher criticism." which he character ized as Infidelity masquerading under another form, be rigidly excluded in all Its forms from the Sunday school as tending to destroy faith in the bible. He began by saying that his addre. s wan on a subject which was of more interest than any other in the world to people, whether they were Christians or not. Guesses Not Satisfying Guesses as to the future state \satls fled no one, he said, but he could show from the bible that the accepted the ories are wrong, both " he Roman Cath olic and the Protest; t. , ■ From the bible , ,? ,-, .id show'fa^ta^ he said, that woul^'prove satisfying to the head and the heart. This question is the one which la now causing most of the Infidelity of the world, and infi delity, he declared. Is increasing, not the .blatant Infidelity of Paine and oth ers, but the refined critical infidelity of the colleges. With the latter type he has some sympathy, he says, as he passed through that phase of criticism himself, but with the casting aside of the ralth of his Presbyterian fathers he cast aside the bible. Later he dis covered his mistake, took up his bible and has read and studied, freed from the spectacles of his fathers, through which he had formerly gained a dis torted vision. He analysed the belief In hexver hell and purgatory of the Roman Cath olics, which were never discovered in the bible, he says. Then he took Mar tin Luther and the Reformation, de scribed the abolition of purgatory and the decision of the dissenters that every one must go to hell who had formerly been In purgatory. Later he Introduced John Calvin and the doc trine of predestination, contrasted his character with that of John Wesley and showed the mistaken sanctity of both and expounded their misconception of the nature of God. If God were indeed a Just God, he said, and a merciful and loving God as we believe, It is inconceivable that he should condemn humanity to eternal suffering. No Justice In Torture "There is no Justice In torturing you forever for the crimes you have done here," he declared. Purgatory was made, he says by our forefathers with a bump of imagina tion and that and hell of the eternal torture type were never mentioned In the bible. "Hold on to the bible," he urged, "It is the only book that has a rational, sensible conclusion o n the subject. God Is all wise, all just, all loving and all powerful and he is able to make things work out according to his wisdom." His theory is that the dead are sleep ing until the resurrection day, that they will then rise and then will be insti tuted two schemes of salvation. One an earthly blessing and the other heav enly and both everlasting. The salva tion of the church comes first; it Is an "elect" special class, whose glorious reward will be on the spiritual plane as joint heirs with the Redeemer. Not until the church's salvation shall be completed in the first resurrection will the world's salvation be due to begin. The blessing of mankind will be a restitution —a restoring to human per fection —to the image of Ood In the flesh. This restoration to the perfect man, as was Adam before his fall, will bring to pass, according to Pastor Russell, one of the most wonderful coloniza tion schemes that the mind can con ceive. All of the dead, who are not of the elect, will remain on the earth living the perfeot life for 1,000 years, after which they will enter on the sec ond death, from which there is no res urrection. «c said that this would be possible, for although there have been scientific Continued on Page 2, Colqsui 3 ■ '■■ PASTOR RUSSELL Charles Taze Russell — "Pastor Russell" — a "circuit rider" over a 30,000 mile loop yearly to many churches, and principally taken up with his work at the Brooklyn tabernacle, is a native of Pittsburg, Pa., and is fifty-nine years old.
