$TA I A C0IIECTIC0TT5 G0IEM01 iS TO 8E MODERATOB FOB ODGHEGATlDWflLiSTS Layman Is to Preside at Kansas City Meeting; Episcopal Church Socialist League Makes Demands; a New : Catholic Jurisdiction Is Formed in Order to Stop Conflict of Authority. SIMBOK M. Baldwin, governor of Conrcctieat. and mentioned as candidate for United States sen ator from his state, seems likely to be chosen moderator of the Congregational National council, assembling at Kan sas City at the end of this month. There is a custom that prescribes a clergy man and then a layman, and the pre- nt moderator is a clergyman. Rev. Dr. Xehemiah Boynton. of Brooklyn. If a. laman is chosen this year he is al most certain to be governor Baldwin, fiergymen mentioned are president King, of Oberlin, and Rev. Dr. Horace E. Day. the Los Angeles pastor. The coast is putting forward a claim that it is time it was recognised by the moderatorship. The new plans for Congregational v ork, a report of a committee and a constitution, a new creed and a secre tary seem likely to go through with out a hitch. Within the last fortnight sentiment seems to have grown stronger in favor of all of them. They prov.de, in brief, that the National council shall meet every other year in stead of every third one as now, and the delts.aes of the council shall be the directing power of the benevolent societies and the educational agencies. There are some additions from the so tieties. and there is provision fprj in- t rvening .ears, but In brier ine cgm l'ination P'an of the council del legates ml thf missionary soeietv governing bodies is as stated. All of the benevolent societies. In- cH'amg me American uon.ru ar u- eluded in the plan of a commission on missions, that shall direct the appor tionments on churches. There is an ex pectation that eventually the number of societies, now seven or eight, shall be reduced to three. There are heard no objections to the statement of doc trine, and it seems certain that the sec retary will be elected. This Secretary will have unusual powers in the whole denomination and in some measure will do work now done by the moderator. His function is in the nature of that o.' an official head to Congregational ism, a man familiar with all depart ments of work ami competent to ad Mse on all. He will also represent the denomination at meetings of other Christian bodies. In short, it is a de parture toward centralized authority. At Iwpisss (Sty there will be an ex hibit. itao.de op of the Congregational portions of the exposition that has been held under names "The World in Bos ton." The World in Chicago." There will also De held there during the coun cil period a conference of home mis sion workers. The latter will report to i ach other progress ajid problems, but the chief purpose of the conference is 10 help on the project to make service in home mission fields permanent. In most bodies home mission workers are eipected tp be yaupg men just from seminaries. tIwowiHfciB.fi. few years be fore becoming pastorftjf city churches, or else men full of years who for some reason did not die in pastorates The belief is growing the home missions offers careers for whole life times. The cenference wjll try to see how it can point out to workers this progressive fact. episcopal ciiiRcn socialist LEAGUE IS 3IAKING DEMANDS. A church Socialist league, made up chiefly 9t gpfeaaftfljofgy and laymen. is ma SsSftMmdpBn sferabership. bershtp is drawlngm seme of the fore most leaders. These leaders are speak ing their minds in plain terms. They are saying that the Episcopal church, tlaiming to be Catholic, is distinctively aristocratic, and run in its larger af fairs by rich laymen. Some of the Leaguers are saying they do not want readjustment of representation in the General convention. Such change will, the say. increase the number of depu tes from big dioceses like Massachu setts, Kw York, Pennsylvania, Mary land awl rtUriois, jai& -so increase the number of rich laymen and nothing more Just .prior to the assembling of the General convention, now in session in New York, Socialist league people held a conference, and surprised even them sl es by the number of clergymen of prominence who attended it, and by the plain speaking that they either in dulged in or applauded when others gave voice to it. The charge was made that tlw rask ajul file-of members of the Eautfpal ahurc. jfeave almost no intereStlSt all in the- general affairs of their religious body because they have no part in them.

The mainspring in the Christian's life is the supreme motive to please God. Rev. Herman G. Porter, at First Methpdist church. Paul's idea of disdpleship was not so much the idea of duty as it was the idea of a privilege. He gave the world to understand that he was glad to suffer for Christ's sake. Eer. C. W. Webdell, at Trinity Methodist church. Jealousy and envy are characteristic as the most pernicious passions of the human soul, and lead to the most disgraceful conduct, and can be overcome only by the stronger passion, the love of God shed abroad in the heart, by the holy ghost given unto us. Rev. H. P. Bond, at East El Paso Methodist church. If Christians would manifest one-fourth of the enthusiasm in their religion that the country is exhibiting in the game of baseball, the church would go for ward by leaps and bounds in its conquest of the world for ChristS-Rev. Kenneth Brown, at East El Paso Presbyterian church. The church of the future will be more and more an association of men and women who, laying less and less stress on creeds, seek such help as shall assist them to live out a useful life. Rev. Miles Hanson, at First Congregational church. It is far better to fail righteously than to succeed by compromise.. Nothing is worth so much to a man as character. Rev. A. E. Boyd, at Highland Park Baptist church. Neglect will send more souls to perdition than open rebellion. Rev. E. H. Combs, at St. Paul's Lutheran church. If we follow the teachings of Christ, we must ever have a kind and sympathetic word for those who have lost their hold of life, who have missed their aim and are walking in the dark pathways of life, without hope, or light, or help. Rev. Ed. L. Millican, at East El Paso Baptist church. After all, disease, pain, sickness and death are not the great things to be feared. God pity the mind that gets sidetracked on these. The greatest thing to be feared is that our souls may not be in harmeny with God. Rev. John E. Abbott, at Westminster Presbyterian church.

The Roman Catholic church, through action Just taken by the congregation of the Propaganda at Rome, does the unusual thing of creating one Episco pal jurisdiction within the bounds of others. It does so to put a stop to con flicts of authority, but some persons are expressing fear that even greater conflicts mav follow. There have ex isted difficulties between Catholics of the Greco-Ruthenian and the Latin rites in Canada for many years. Now the Propaganda provides that the former may have a bishop of their own. With residence at Winnipeg, and jurisdiction throughout dominion, without regard to existing Latin Episcopal jurisdic tions. It is provided that a seminary for the training of Ruthenian priests may be established at Winnipeg. Canadian bishops of the Latin rite are exhorted by Propaganda to allow some of their priests to auminisier iu th iuxs of Ruthemans -wneu ro- .iJ hiit it fnrbid the Latin rite 2riX and their con-regationt to pass P1?18 "!?

It is said from the Vatican that in part through its influence the topics presented at this congress were exclusively social. much attention being given to rural district conditions. In England church congresses receive much more popular attention than here.

The matter Is said to have -w"" fc . . " . been conducted in such way ttat tne Anglican leaders understood and ap proved of It. It As furthermore re ported from the Vatican, on the same authority, that the new and more friendly approach with the Anglicans will have its effect upon America.

The words here spoken by the prophet are calculated to catch the ear, stir the imagination and thrjll the soul. These captive Jews had endured much; they had passed through the darkness of Babylo nian heathenism: they were wanderers from home and in a strange land, but their thoughts were ever turning to ward Jerusalem, and their souls sing ing of home.

At the beginning of the year reserve funds were drawn upon to the extent of $197,000. All of these have been returned, and the re serve gains a little. In order to avoid debt, this Episcopal board has accumu lated from special gifts no less a sum than $SS7,000, so that in summer, when receipts are lightened, expenses go on as usual, and at year ends, when deficits occur it simply borrows money from Its own funds.

THE FEAST OE THE TABERNACLES Will Be Celebrated Xext Week In El Paso In Local Syiiagog Subject of the Rabbi's Sermons. The Jewish festival of Succoth or Feast of Tabernacles will be celebrated this year from Wednesday night. October 15. at sundown, to Thursday nisrht. October 23. at the same time. The festival lasts regularly eight days, and Is celebrated bv all Jews through- out the world, it was ceiebratea py - . . . . ' the Jews when they lived in Palestine as an agricultural festival, and marked the close of the harvest and the be ginning of the plowing and rainy season. It was a festival of rejoicing and merry-making when the servant was equal tothe master and all united In praising and thanking God for His bountiful gifts. The Bible command ed that on this festival all the people should make a pilgrimage to the Tem ple at Jerusalem, and there, after of fering their sacrifices, should dwell in booths or tabernacles, hastily erect ed of wood and beautifully decorated with fruits and flowers to remind them rimf livn In PqIocmtia I both of the harvest season and how their ancestors had dwelt In booths in the wilderness. Many Jews still observe the latter customs, today. In some' synagogs, too, a modernized form of the harvest festival Is cele brated. Some also celebrate a supplementary festival on the ninth day, called Re joicing of the Law, because on that day the sacred scrolls of the Law of Moses are rolled back tdMlie beginning of Genesis and are begun to be read anew. In many synagogs the scrolls are taken from the holy ark, in which they are kept and carried about in solemn procession. Divine services will be held in the local synagogs, as follows: Sukkoth Wednesday, October 15, 7 p. m.. "Sukkoth" Symbolism"; Thurs day, October 16, 10 a. m., "Temporary Dwellings." Sabbath Service Friday, October 17, S p. m., "A Song of Victory." Sh'mini Azereth Wednesday, Oc tober 22, 8 p. m., "The Unattainable": Thursday, October 23, 10 a. m., "A Worthy Successor."

A fool hath no delight In under standing, but that his heart may dis cover itself. When the wricked cometh, then Com eth also contempt, and with ignominy reproach. The words of a man's mouth are as deep waters, and the wellspring of wisdom as a flowing brook. It is not good to accept the person of the wicked, to overthrow tho righteous In judgment. A fool's lips enter into contention, and his mouth calleth for strokes. A fool's mouth Is his destruction, and his lips are the snare of his soul.

Are Boned W Their Because Captives their eyes which were moistened with tears of joy. was Mt. Hermon. with Its snow capped peaks, where old Elijah defeated the prophets of Baal. The prophet, Isaiah, had foretold their coming, and sentinels stood day and night in the outposts of Israel to note their earliest approach. How zealously they watched, that they might carry back to Jerusalem the glad tid ings. Are We Watching? Are we watching the return of the prodigals? Are we glad when sinners come from the fields of sin to Zion with a new song upon their lips and in their hearts? As I look back over r more than 23 centuries I see those lib erated slaves toiling up the slopes of Mesopotamia. I look again, and Her mon's sentinel has caught a glimpse of the advancing host and signal fires blaze out from mountain peak to moun tain peak, until Jerusalem catches the far off gleam and proclaims to .'the cities of Judea that the captives are coming. Among those who watched and waited were fathers and mothers, whose children had been carried away. These father-; and mothers had grown old, weak, infirm, and their eyes dim with weeping, for 70 years had passed but now thev hear the sentinel shout BEHOLD THEY COME. What an occasion for rejoicing. But In the midst of that joy there were heartaches and sorrow, for some did not return home. This thought finds an echo in many hearts. In our day. some of our loved ones have beep led away into captivity by the devil. Some have returned to gladden our hearts others there are who are In the far country. Has n Special Meaning Today. These are the pictures which fill the foreground of the prophet's mind, but the prophecy has a special meaning fer us today. It suggests, or is pro phetic of the final triumph of the Church of God, when all the nations and kingdoms of the world shall come with songs of, everlasting joy and peace All about Us men and women are in captivity: chained by nature and practice in the Babylon of this world's sin and shame.

Men and Women Returning to God. j; am glad that day after day men and women are returning to God. They are returning from the fields of sin.

They come by way of mountains, coves, dens; they come by way of the sick bed, the hos pitals, floods and storms. St. John, in a vision, saw an angel standing upon the battlements of heaven, and ho asked. ."Who are these and whence came they?" The answer came. "These are they who came up through great tribulations and have washed their gar ments in the blood of the Lamb.

ALTAR HASRELICS PROM MANY LANDS Chapel of the Interceiwloii In Ifevr Yoric Is Remarkable Example of Ec clesiastical Art and Architecture. New York, Oct 11. An altar be-, decked with relics from all over the world and recalling many historical and traditional places and incidents will be the most absorbing feature of the magnificent Chapel of the Inter cession now nearlng completion on Washington Heights. This church Is declared to be the finest example of ecclesiastical art and architecture In. New York, and probably In the United States. No building in New York has a set ting of greater historical interest, to the east and south being Trinity ceme tery (now its own churchyard) In. which, still appear faintly the ridge of the trenches used in the battle of Washington Heights. Within the chapel every bit of or namentation is of a profoundly sym bolic character. The significance of the whole, however, will concentrate in the altar with Its remarkable sug gestion of secular and sacred history. There will be bits of sculpture, bricks, colored tiles, rough slabs, fragments of tombs and palaces, pebbles from Jor dan, stones from Mount Sinai, the walls of Jericho, the temple of Jeru salem and the Mount of Olives, and other relics almost countless, the gathering of which is a story in itself, and every one of which has its indi vidual certificate of authenticity.

The organization had been, in existence for saveral years, but its work had been confined to the preven tion of tuberculosis and the care oC consumptives. This work had lapsed, because of the lack of funds and Miss Daffan impressed upon Mrs. Colquitt the fact that with the proper leader ship this organization conld be made an asency for promoting public health work. Mrs. Colquitt took up the work and. from merelv taking a hand in the bat tle against tuberculosis. It extended its efforts to fighting all preventable diseases and waging a campaign for sanitation. This was carried on through women's clubs, health leagues, city and countv offlcials, boards of health, boards of education and in every other manner that presented itself.
