Secretary of State Bryan's decision
to serve no liquors nt his state din
ners was lauded by the committee on
temr.';raEce and other reforms. "This,"
said the romniit'cc In Us annual re
port, "seems almost as if the milieni
uin had arrived In Washington."
"While the progreHa in temperance
reform, taking the country as a whole,
has not been especially marked dur
ing the year." says the report, "there i and
have been some victories that are out-
standing and inspiring. The over
whelming vote of Went Virginia In
favor of the prohibition of the caloou
in that commonwealth was a surprlbc
to both the friends and thy foes of
the reform. It indicates an intreaeinj;
sentiment in favor of prohibition that
is little hhort of asionik-hint?. In addi
tion to this there'vaa the enactment
of the Wthb-Kenyoa interstate com
merce Mil in the closing days of the

"Then there is, especially, the gen
eral uprising ail over our country
against protected prostitution which
has been accorded an immunity and
has produced consequences that are
appalling. Cities and commonwealths
are moving to tear out this deadly
cancer by the very roots, through the
awakening of the public conscience,
while a recent supreme court decision

white slave traffic and other forms of
hitherto defiant vice. Surely there is
great reason for the friends of right
eousness and the Kingdom of God to
thank Him and take courage.
"The general, nation-wide move
ment on behalf of the Sabbath is still
making progress. The postoffice de
partment of the government and large
manufacturing and railroad corpora-
tions are increasingly responsive to
i the effort to Recure for their employes
one day of rest in seven and the Sab
bath is coming into favor with work
ing men and working men's organiza
tions. The most disheartening feat
ure of the Sabbath problem is the dis
position on the part of church people
to let down in their ideals of Sab
bath keeping. The automobile and
moving picture and other forms of
recreation threaten to rob it of its
sanctity and make of it a holiday
rather than a holy day.

"Our highest church courts should
take this matter under most serious
consideration and unite in some con
certed effort for maintaining the sa
credncis of the day among Christian
people. The forces of greed and
pleasure opposing the Sabbath are
still active in all our commonwealths
in their effort to repeal Sabbath laws
