- THE TIMES: WEDNESDAY, NOVEMEEK 5, 1911 CHAOTIC RELIGIOUS NOW PRE All. Situation So Unsettled As To Make Final Outcome Doubt ful at Present Time. Other Problems Are Being Solved. That rliisoiis conditions In Ger many are vej'J unseuled is the gist of a report rea.-ied the National Lu theran. Council from Hev. G. A. F.-.n-(Irt y. one ui the Lutiieran Commis sioners in Ktiroye. The it:"i:ortunt excerpts are here STivon: food -cn'litions are a. good deal bet ter in Leipzig: than they are in Ber Un. Whiio Iffj in small quantities is there obtainable, and yoa can even get butter. The best hotels in Berlin have nei.her. It is a pathntic sig"ht here to see men and women of hi;jh social standing enter first class hotels with little parcels of cheese and meit and little cups of butter, which they are somehow and somewhere able to purchase and over whicu they watch as costly treasures, to replenish the very frugal breakfast, which these ho tels serve. So many men and quite a cumber of women show the marks of the ions period of starvation, through which they have Just passed on their faces. They look five years older, their eyes are sunk, and have 'bass under them. Outwardly, the appearance of Ber lin has improved since I first came here. The streets look clean, the shops seem better stocked and today crowds of well dressed and well be haved people fill the streets. Tou bear a good deal of complaint about deterioration of manners and morals. I have seen little of it, though I have tried to make studies In street cars, on trains, in shops and other places where the plain people gather. They treat one another with a good deal of courtesy .and Pastor chuh has re peatedly been given a seat In crowded cars by young men and young wo men. I have seen no drunken people. Sundays the shops are closed, and you cannot even buy a cigar. I have of ten wondered what the mental state of these people is. It gives one the impression of quiet resignation, of helpless acceptance of the inevitable. Everybody is speaking of the un avoidable breakdown that is coming, and no one seems to know how to pre vent it. The future of these people looks dark, and they know it. They can see no ray of hope ahead, and so they try to do the .best they know: Forget. Sometimes one opens his heart to vou. Recently a lady- asked me: "Do you think our country come back, or Is this a dying will Na- tlon?" The question has occurred to me: Will these people in this state of de jection be able successfully to cope with the grave problems which con front their church life? We are trying to encourage them and hope that our home-church stands solidly back of us. The condition of the Church here is as Indefinite as that of the state and perhaps more so. It is hard to answer the question, have State and Church been sepa rated? Some th'.nk they have, and others they have not. In the new Constitution of the German Republic, the first paragraph of the section treating of the relation of Church and State says: There is no State Church. This is undoubtedly said in the sense of a preferred Church with special privileges. No Church is to enjoy any particular privileges, all Churches shall have equal rights. And this Includes the adherents of any philosophical or ethical doctrine. The State, however, assumes ana ex- : ercises a kind of protectorate over the Church. It leaves the property i rights of the Church to its funds and landed estates undisturbed. It places . its own tax lists at the disposal of the Church, though it compels no- , body to pay taxes for the Church. It , maintains at the Universities, the 1 Theoloerfcal Faculties and retains re- ' ligious instruction as a regular study in its public schools, w:tn continn of those where thi3 the ex- has al- ready been dropped: but it does not : THANKSGIVING WEDDING GIFTS At no time of the year are wed dings more popular than around Thanksgiving.

Attempts have been made in some more radical communities to elimin ate religious instruction before the new Constitution .oes into effect in order to make it face a finished sit uation. In Gotha, where this attempt was made, the school boys and girls started a strike in protest against the order of the school board. The supervision of Religious Instruction is not in the hands of the Church but of the State Authorities. Tr&s prob ably means that there will be no supervision at all, but it may also mean pressure upon the schools to spread radical religious views. It is easy to understand from the state ments that in the new order the Church is after all thrown upon Its own religious and moral resources, that the time has now come when it must live by its Faith. It is only to be hoped that Its oil of Faith is plen tiful enough to keep its lamp burn ing.' TATES G TRADE TH BRAZIL (Commerce Monthly.) Brazil has always depended exten sively upon the United States foi manufactured articles, but war con ditions have curtailed her sources of supply here and elsewhere, en forcing the development of her own industries to meet her people's needs and tending" to lessen her dependence upon thia country. More than one-third of the total imports into Brazil during- 1918 came from the United States. What share of this consisted of manufactures is not yet known, but in 1917 more than half of the total imports from this country was made up of manu factured goods. While the war has increased our productive capacity until we feel the necessity of finding a market for our surplus manufactured products, it "has exerted an equally stimulating ef fect upon Brazilian industry. The usual sources of supply were closed to the. Brazilian people. The develop ment which has taken place in that country since 1914 would serve as a classical illustration of the steps by which industrialization occurs in any country. As war cut off the imports of tex tiles and clothing, Brazil set out to clothe her own people. Prior to the war, the larger part of Brazilian cot ton was exported "raw," while that or other cotton, manufactured abroad for Brazilian use, was imported. Now the major portion of Brazilian cotton is consumed at home, and the local industry supplies considerably more than half of the home trade. Many of the local cotton mills are built on fine modern lines, with electric power Arcade Flower Shop 4 P. O. Arcade LAUREL FOR GRAVE COVERINGS James E. Dngsan.

American Hardware Stores, INCORPORATED, Fairfield Av. and Middle St. "All that Is Hardware and more." and all the latest equipment. Some silk and jute goods are also manu factured. Before the war the country was dependent on imports for knls eoods. Between 1915 and 1917 eight mills for the manufacture of knit goods were established in Sao Paulo, and more than seventy textile mills of all classes are in operation in that state alone. One million, two hundred thousand hats were made in that dis trict in 1916. The manufacture of shoes has re ceived such an impetus that the country is no longer dependent on foreign sources and the output of footwear in Brazil is now 20,000,000 pairs a year. tlrazil found that it had difficulty not only in getting adequate cloth ing, but also In procuring prepared .'"oods. In this situation it set out to prepare these products at home. A larg;: number of plants for making preserves, sweets and chocolates have beun operation. Corn milling and other manufac- tures of food products increased! rapidly. Now Brazil is not only pre- paring food products for its own use, i but, in certain lines, it is also en-1 tering the world market. In 1914 no! lard was exported from Brazil. In ' 1915, 4 tons were exported, and in j 1918, 13,270 tons, valued at aboui $8,000,000, left Brazil for foreign i ports. The exportation of refrigerated meats has cianded from S,5iM) to 60.500 tons. The mate of Sao Paulo is the main center of Brazilian manufacture. Dur ing the years from 1915 to 1917,. 323 manufacturing concerns capitalized at a total of $3,500,000, or an average of over $10,000 each, were established i in that province. I Progress toward Industrialization as a result of the war, so marked In Brazil, has been made In almost every one of those less developed countries of the world which in the past have been looked upon as sure markets for the-exportable-surplus of staple manufactures from the chief manufacturing countries. This tendency to develop home In dustries is a matter for earnest thought on the part of those manu facturers who require an export, mar ket for their product. Thesituation need cause no anxiety if it is realized and Intelligently met. Our exporters should prepare to sell the manufac turing equipment which these coun tries will require In increasing quan tities and articles of comfort and lux ury adapted to meet the expanding demand of populations whose stand ard of living is rising and whose con suming power is increasing as their industrial life quickens. So. far as they attempt to compete with articles of local manufacture, Americans must either meet the local price, offer a better article or develop specialities, the market for which is easier to hold than is the market for staples.

Tho Note to ! the Powers, Macchio added. was! only sent by the Vienna Cabinet as a : matter of international courtesy. ' Berchtold telegraphed from Ischl saying that he approved of the state ment, and asked that this view of his might be communicated to the Rus sian Charge d' Affaires. On the same day Berchtold instructed Count Szar pary, the Austro-Hungarian Ambas sador at St. Petersburg, to inform M. Sazonoff "that for the purpose of se curing, our demands we intena to go to extremities, and we snould not shrink even from the possibility of European complications. Berchtold In the Red Book published by him, suppressed this sentence. On July 28 Berchtold addressed n urgent mes sage to the Austrian Ambassador at St. Petersburg instructing him to threaten war with Russia. A Downright Forgery. It now appears that the pretended report by the Ambassador of his con versation with M. Sazanoff which was printed in Berchtold's Red Book was a downright forgery. According to that version, M. Tazonoff was ex tremely rude and bellicose in his language, whereas, according to Szapary's real telegram, he was most polite and conciliatory. The old grudges of the Russians against the Dual Monarchy, he said, were a thing of the past and could have no influence on practical policy. M.
