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

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

held under names "The World in Bos

the chief purpose of the conference is

are saying that the Episcopal church,

The "mainspring In the watch is an absolute necessity. 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.

The church of the future will be more and more an association of men and

CREATES XBW JURISDICTION TO
STOP COXFLICT OP AUTHORITY.
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

At Toronto, where for the first time
Disciples of Christ held their annual
convention outside of the United States,
their foreign missionarv society re
ported an Increase in receipts over the
previous year of $83,400. Their home
mission society reported an increase of
$26,000. A DiseiDles' plan well under

and to raise $2,400,000 to sUDDOrt

aroused most interest at Toronto was
the one to go to Thibet, "the roof of
Asia." One woman, a Methodist, by the
way. pledges money to erect churches
at six main stations and 25 subsidiary
ones, provided Disciples will furnish
funds to maintain work in them. Disci

Humanity Without God Is Without Hope, but God, by His Spirit, Is Leading Men
to Light, and the World Grows Better.
By Rev. C. Wesley Wendell, Pastor of Trinity Methodist Church.
'And t'e ransomed of the Lord shall
return and come to ZIon -with song and
with everlasting joy npon their heads:
.they shall obtain Joy anil Kindness, and
sorrow and sighing shall flee nvray,'
Isalnh a... 10.
THESE words were spoken by Isaiah
who was, perhaps, the wisest and
: the most suDiimeoi uoas propn-
ate A f tor Vila -mnnrlprfnl vision, an
i "count of which is given in Isaiah
sixth chapter, he seems to have had a
wonderful insight into the things of
God, and a deep desire to help his
people. .No doubt these words of the
prophet came to those captive Jews
like a sweet song in the night of sad
ness: like a rainbow of hope across
the bosom of a tempest, or a sunburst
upon a stormswept sea, or like the
voice of the shepherd to the lost and
wandering sheep. 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. Hear them as they sing
their song of sadness. "By the rivers
of Babylon, there we sat down, yen.
we wept when we remembered Zmn."

During those 70 years of bondage

were just ahead. It was the will of
God they should return home. By a
decree of Cyrus, they were not only
permitted to return to Canaan, but they
were permitted to carry with them the
sacred vessels used in Solomon's tem
ple, which had been stolen by Nebuchad
nezzar, and wbhjh adorned the table
at the fatal banquet of Belshazzar.

these have been returned, and the re

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 board's showing

THE FEAST OE
THE TABERNACLES
Will Be Celebrated Xext Week In El

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

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

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

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.

with weeping, for 70 years had passed

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.

have returned to gladden our hearts

These are the pictures which fill the
foreground of the prophet's mind, but
the prophecy has a special meaning

Church of God, when all the nations
and kingdoms of the world shall come
with songs of, everlasting joy and

are in captivity: chained by nature and

If you would be all of these things
you must study life under the motto

Miss Clare Is the reincarnation of

of life." Some one has said: "Human
ity is a Prometheus, lashed to the rocks
of suffering by chains of habit, and
torn by the vultures of a base desire."
We are captives because of our ignor

Glorious Periods.
It was one of the world's sublimest
periods when Cyrus told the captive
Jews that they might return home. It
was a glorious day when England smote
the shackles from her slaves. It was
a glorious day when Russia freed her
Serfs, but infinitely more beautiful
and sublime Is the procession of eman
cipated souls marching onward and
upward toward the hill tops of heaven.
The text "and the ransomed." Do we
understand the meaning of that word,
ransomed?" Ask the Jews returning
from captivity. Ask any of God's chil
dren who have been saved from sin.
Did you ever think what it cost to ran
som a lost world? It cost Jesui his
life. He died for us. Through the
shedding of his blood it became pos
sible for all men to be saved.
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.
Veterans of the cross are coming from
every nation and kingdom of the
earth, and are marching to Canaan's
happy home. Paul tells how many
came before his time. 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. The
saints were singing the songs of Da
vid, as they came marching up before
the days of the son of man. And on
Olivet the disciples sang the aseension
hymn And listening, we, too. catch
the echos of the Apostles' chanting:
"Come Holy Spirit, heavenly dove.

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.

Miss Daffan told Mrs. Colquitt of the
work of the Texas Anti-Tuberculosi3
association. 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.

and very unpleasant, but many people
will sacrifice anything for beauty.
Dieting, too, will help wonderfully,
