SUBSCRIPTI0N-S5.00 PER ANNUM LUMBERJACK SKY PILOT TELLS OF WORK IN GAMPS Contiuued from First Page turb the men others said no good would ever come of it. Then the men, many of them, were against it. Some said it was a graft others had their favorite churches, and were afraid the mission workers might say something against their church. In other cases the foremen of the camps were very unfriendly to wards the missionary, which made it very hard, especially when he felt he was not welcome in the camp. But I am now thankful to say that practically all of these obstacles are gone. Some of the lumber firms are now requesting that a missionary be sent to their camp and are anxious to have him spend all of his time among their men, and for this the company is willing to pay the entire salary of the man, and board and keep him, besides the men in the various camps are always glad to see the missionary now, and look forward to his coming and give him the glad hand and throughout the entire service pay the most profound respect. When the missionary is about to leave he receives many in vitations to come again. "I am glad to tell you that the work this past summer has been reorganized, and, as I have said, instead of it being any longer a local work, it is now fast becoming national in character. We now have such men as John H. Converse, L. L. Rev. J. Wilbur Chapman, D. Rev. Parley E. Zartmann, D. Hon. Hugh H. Hanna and others organized as a committee, with Rev. J. C. Buswell acting as general superintendent,with the head office in the Lumber Fxchange, Minneapolis. It is the purpose to extend this work just as rapidly as possible throughout our great" coun try, wherever logging is carried on, not only holding meetings in the camps, but giving the men reading matter, taking care of many of the poor fellows, who fall by the way when they come to town, and visit ing the various hospitals where the men are taken while sick. Sometimes it is to carry reading matter or a little fruit, or it maybe to write the last letter to mother, or some other loved one, or to listen to the story of a misspent life, with a desire to die in the faith of their fathers. 4 Many times, as I have stood by such sick beds, how I have wished that the Christian world could only understand this great need that is at our doors. And why should not these men in our forests have some attention paid to them by the church? Have we not already been too long awakening to this condition? Has the church, for many, many years, been sending missionaries to foreign countries, and at the same tine been overlooking this great need at home? Not but what it is our duty to send the missionary abroad, for the command of Christ was to go into all the world. But we must not do this at the expense of our home work, for let us never forget that our great America is the dumping ground of almost all other nations, and many of these nations should be sending missionaries to make good citizens of their people, since they have chosen this fair land for the home ot themselves and their posterity. Because of this neglect of our men in the forest, we now hear the cry everywhere that its men are fast becoming hoboes, tramps, etc. The wonder to me is that they are half as good as they are. Let us stop for a minute and con sider. Years ago the men of the forest went away up the river, as it was called. They were many miles away from civilzation, but at the same time they were away from temptation, for they staid in the woods most of the year. But of late years they log by rail, and no sooner is a railroad surveyed through the forest to get out a piece of timber, then every few miles a town springs up, which at first consists principally of saloons, gambling houses and brothels. These not only have their regular expenses, but the owners are ready to bleed them for every cent, and in turn they have to make it out of the lumberjack, for he is one they can expect to make their living from. And how often, when a lumber jack, whose only fault was to go to town and drink too much, tried to get some justice, was told to go back and earn another stake. In many cases he is spoken of as only an old drunk but what has made him this? Was it not his surroundings? If he went to many of these towns and wanted a shave, he had to go into a saloon if he wanted to eat he had to go ipto a saloon or if he wanted abed he had to go over a saloon, or in many cases was glad fo take the sawdust floor of a saloon and in the cold winter's day, the saloon was the only place provided for the lumber jack to keep from freezing. He had no place to sit down in com fort to read or rest or warm him self, but rum, rum, rum was staring him in the face, and to the poor fellows, who have the temptation, think of the awful results. "is it any wonder, I say, that we need missionaries at home, and especially in this part of the state? But the question is so often asked, does this work do any good? Let us see: I feel sure a few men, who are now living a good straight life, will not object to me using their names, such men as O'Connor, who today has a fine farm in North Dakota. A few years ago he was down and out. Al Moore, who was picked up on the streets of Bemidji when even his own wife was ready to give him up. For many years before he died he lead a clean life. "Frank Bush, who now is doing so well in the west. 'John Sorenberg, who was hunted, like a rabbit by hounds, by the police, and justly so, today has a good home and is happy, and who thanks God for the day the mission- for Yourself what the Northern Pacific Railway offers it* patrons.

And there are many others yes, hundreds who will testify they have been helped by this work. Let us remember, these men are worth saving. Many of them are mere boys from our farms, who need the influence of the missionary, surrounded as they are by these awful evils. "in conclusion, let me say the better class of people in all our towns should take more interest in our men from the woods. They are not bad men. They are more often victims and feel that nobody cares for them, unless they can get their money. How I long for the day, and I believe it is near at hand, when in every lumbering center we will have fine hotels for our men from the woods, where they can get a bath, a meal and a clean bed for a reasonable price with no evil attachment."
