Dr. Campbell, pastor cf the City Temple, London, says that "no successful business . man in modern times can he honest." The statement is reported to have Incensed the Phil adelphia business men to whom it was addressed, and it Is calculated to In cense everybody who has regard for the truth. There is dishonesty in business as there is dishonesty In , all. matters of life, hut the amount of honesty far ex ceeds the amount' of dishonesty. If it did not, society .would disintegrate. If business men generally proceeded on the theory that, they had to be dishon est to succeed, there would beio business;-but a- return to the ; primitive conditions pf Tbarter,;.
