rngti Six Pastor BISHOP-APOSTLES COSTLY MISTAKE Primary Cause of Doctrinal Er rors of the Past. UNTRAMiYELED BIBLE STUDY, Pastor Russell 8ayi That li the Proper D,ni For Harmony and Union of All Follower! of Christ Jeeuf Chose the Twelve, and In a Message to the Church Made It Known That There Were Never to Be Any More, Nor Any Less The Successor to Judae. St. Louis, Octo ber 20. W'u repor. one of Pastor Rus sell's discourses here today from tlie text, "Have not I chosen you Twelve V" (Joliu vl, 7(1.) He said: As Christians we Imvu long In uioiit cil our differences mill wondered lit their number. As wo Imve been get I'AMOR BIJ5MII ting riil one after another of tlie doetri iiiil errors of the pnt, and see tlieir fool ishness, nml h'.'i tu Unit they are not Hiipporleil by liilili! tc-dimony, we won der liow tliey originally got a foothold In Christian faith. Hut a glance backward Is siillielcnl to explain tlie situation. During the ministry of our Lord and the Apostles (he faith of the Church whs kept pure, hut as Jesus prophesied In the parable of 'The Wheat n ml Tares, nil this chunked as soon as the Apos ties fell asleep, lie says, "While ineu filept, the enemy came nml sowoc tares" amongst the wheat. 'The tares of error sown by Satan shortly aflel the death of thu Apostles have ylchlVi nn nbiiuihiut crop nml well-nigh choked out the good seed of the King 1nin Christ's saintly followers. The nominal wbeat-liehl might almost be called a tare Held, so greatly do the tares predominate. I tit t In the Harvest, (he end of this Age, the dawning of the New Age of Messiah's Kingdom, (he Lord will fa vor Hindi conditions as will effort a thor ough separation between the "wheat" nml the "tares." lie' will gather Ills wheat 1 nl o the garner. All Imitation Christ Inns will, by the fiery troubles of that day, be reduced to (ho ranks of the world In general. Judae' Place Improperly Filled. Whilst the eleven Apostles were waiting as directed for the I'enteeostal Messing, they, contrary to direction, liusled themselves by nppolnlliiK a suc cessor to Judas. They chose two men, mid of (he two Mected one by lot, mid then supposed that they had made nn apostle. Without reproving them ioil Ignored their choice; thenceforth we hear no more of Matthias. In Ills own time (!od brought forth the suc cossnr of Judas, and we nil recognize nt once St. l'anl, of whom It Is written that be was "not one v hit behind the clilefi'sl of the Apostles" and that he liad vhlons and revelations more than they all. St. 1 'mil's writings constitute the major portion of tlie New Testament, nnd are Invaluable gifts of (!od to His jieople. There never were to be more npostles than these Twelve. Jesus de clares that lie chose The Twelve. A km In He declares (hat Cod gave them to lllm and that lie los( none of them nave J wins, whose disloyalty had ill ready been foretold. When Jesus prayed for these lie dif ferentiated tliein from Ills other fol lowers, saying, "Neither prny 1 for these alone, but for all those also who Hball believe on Me t hroniih their word." Their words are His words. They have been Ills inoulhpl s to the Church, (if these Twelve, mid of none others, lie declares, "Whatsoever things ye Khali bind on earth shall be bound in Heaven," and whatsoever 1h1ngs ye shall declare loosed all shall know are loosed nnd not binding In the sight of Heaven. So carefully did the Lord liilrnd to supervise these in their utterances, that their words would be Infallible; and lie wished nil of Ills followers to know this. Kurlliorniore, after our Lord hud m tended to jjlnry. He sent a message lo the Church through SI. John (he lieve aalor. In that message He pictured the Twelve Apostles ns a crown of twelve stars, upon the head of the Woman, (he Church. Again. In the Kvmbollcal picture of the New Jerusa lem, which represents Hie Church In glory beyond (he veil, lie pictures (lie Twelve Apostles as the twelve founda tion stones. There never were to be mi v inure, nor any less, l'ronrllus Htandpolnl we see that we are not (o expect an additional revelation of any Kind, (bid's people are ii"t to trust ei ther In their own speculations and mental gymnastics, or In visions and il renins; for, as St. l'anl declares, "If liny limn preach any cither (iospel than that which we have preached, let lllm U accursed." (Halatliins I, S, !U So, too, he declares, "The Word of His jrrace Is able to build you up," and to "make you wise unto salvation." Again he said, "The Word of (iod Is Biilllclent, that the limn of (led may lie thoroughly furnished." (Acts xx, Jf; II Timothy III, 15 17.) We see, then, that (he Church needed no more I hail the Twelve Apostles, nor nny further revolution of any kind than those Riven to her through this In Bplred apoBtlesliip. Hut that there .ft $, :,f, j A I j I Ml Russell's would bo somo who mistakenly would claim to be npostles, tho Lord Jesus clearly Indicated, declaring that thero would bo false apostles, "who say that they nre npostles and ore not." Roye lntiou II, 2. The First Pseudo-Apostles. When we speak of pseudo-apostles false npostles we should not bo un derstood ns charging intentional fraud. Itather, sympathetically, let us sup poso that the early bishops, lu accept ing the title of npostles nnd In claim ing for themselves succession to tho Apostolic otllce, were honestly deluded, ns much ns were Hie people who thus nckuowedged them, Let us remem ber, further, that tho mntter grew gradually, Just ns titles and dignities grow nt this day. Let us remember that tho early Christians were not generally oduciit-cd-that remarkably few people In old on times were able to rend. Indeed general ability to rend belongs only to our generation, to those living In this our wonderful day the dawning of the New Km of Messiah's Kingdom. Let us remember nlso that nt that time books were very scarce, becnuso very expensive. Tho Jews did, Indeed, en deavor to have n copy of tho Iloly Scriptures lu each synagogue, thero to bo read once n week, In portions, from large and costly scrolls. Christians, expelled from the syna gogue, had no longer the opportunity of the Jews for studying the Old Testa ment Scriptures. And the New Testa ment, written In a fragmentary man ner, was costly also, and not brought together ns a collection for a long time after the death of the Apostles. The Sacred writings soon became relics, remembrances of the dead Apostles und of Jesus, worshipped by all, but not studied, even by those who were able to read. Their value for instruc tion was considered at an end, because the theory in the meantime had sprung up that the living bishops were the rep resentatives of the Apostolic office and Inspirations. The people, therefore, unable to read, asked not, Wfiat say tho Apostles? but received their the ological instructions from the bishops, whom they believed to be the living Apostles. When wo reflect that very few min isters in ono city, even of one denom ination, nre today fully ngreed'ns re spects Divine Truth, we must not bo surprised that during the two centuries following the death of the Apostles, these supposed "successors" got Into all kinds of false doctrine each lend ing a company of believers nnd hold ing the pre-enilnenco of his own views, few thinking to measure their presen tations by those of The Twelve, Divine ly appointed. "Apostolio Council" Next. The doctrinal strife between the bish ops grew. Gradually the peoplo of God, about A. l. 2")0, began to be separated into two classes tho clergy and the hilly. The bishops, Instead of being chosen by the vote of the people, publicly claimed tho Divine right, as the superiors in tho Church, to ordulii for them their clerical teach ers. The clergy, under the lean or tlie bishops as supposed successors to the Apostles, lorded It over God's heritage. Later, lu tho Sixth century, the lllsh op of Itonie began to be considered su perior to all other bishops, and finally was declared to be the chief father, or papa, or Pope. About the Knurl h Century creed nink lug begun. The Nlceiie Creed, the Atli nniislan Creed and the Apostles' Creed, all were formulated In the Fourth Cen tury. It was discovered that more than a thousand bishops-psuedo-apostles were teaching very contrary doctrines on ninny subjects. The Kiuperor Con stantino accepted Christianity und was perplexed by the variety of touching, lie convened Hie "Apostolic Council" of Nice. Hut although he provided ex pense money for all bishops at lending, only about one-third obeyed the com mand. These bishops disputed and wran gled over differences for days and weeks und months, Finally they reach ed a conclusion satisfactory to Hie em peror. It was promulgated with gov ernmental sanction and with the dec laration Hint any persons or teachings to the contrary were to be expelled. Thus a small minority of men who mis takenly thought themselves Inspired, under the leading of an K.niperor who had not even been baptized, set lip n theological standard which since has served well to fetter religious thought in ninny, and to make others believe that there Is nothing In religion but Hlliel'Slltloll. Crccd-nuikliig along these lines pro gressed for twelve hundred years, w Idle the lllble was neglected. It wns not even thought necessary for Instruc tion In theological seminaries. Luther, then a devout Catholic, had taught and preached for years without ever see ing a ltlble. The explanation Is that the bishops, esteemed to be living npos tles In full authority, were thought to have more up-to-date knowledge than the original Twelve, and lu Apostolic Councils had formulated creeds which they declared were alone necessary to be believed. Can we wonder that In Hll those fifteen centuries the real nug gets of Truth which had been deliv ered by Jesus and the Apostles, nnd the Prophets became sadly Incrusted with human tradition, superstition, inlsun deistaiiillng, etc.? Groping For the Light. Our Catholic frlepds do not agree that a great Reformation movement started In the Sixteenth Century. None of us will claim that Luther nnd his friends were Infallible, nnd that In one step they passed from the confusion of Fifteen Centuries Into tho full IiIiim of religious knowledge. All, however, Catholics nnd Protestants, can surely ngree that some kind of creed lmetus to righteousness came to the Protestant : i Sermon movement of tho Sixteenth Century. We have the proof of It all about us. No longer are Protestants and Cath olics warring with each other, burning each other at the stake, etc. Each may feel free to Investigate for him self and to accept or reject such doc trines and creeds as he may please. All true Christian people deplore the division of Christ's followers Into nu merous sects. Nevertheless we may surely feel a great sympathy for all of them when we remember Hint each separate Beet represents an additional effort on the part of honest minds to grope out of darkness toward the light All who are awake are conscious that somo terrible nightmare of error rested upon Christendom for long, long cen turies. The Torch of Civilization. Well has the Hlble been cnlled the Torch of Civilization and Progress. The lllble, not men, was the great Re- former nnd 'lender Into civilization. When tho Rude was placed lu the hnnds of the people, they began to see Hint God's Message ciinie from Jesus, and the Apostles, nnd the Prophets of old, nnd that clerlcism nnd sacerdotal functions were niaii-niade. A desire to know what the Hible teaches becan.e more nnd more prevalent. The first effort of the clerics wns to tell tlie ninsses that the priesthood had the Hl ble and would read It in their hoarlng but it was rend In Latin, to those who could not understand Latin. Gradually the desire sprang up foi the lllble in the English language. Dr. Tyndalo wns nuiongst the first to rec ognize the need and to supply It to the Ilritlsh. Later on Luther, with assist ants, supplied the Germans. Hut not many were able to read. A partisan spirit nrose. Seeing Hint the Hible wns popular, nil ncclnlined it as the Divine Itevelntion. Hut each party condemned the translation made by the other, when in reality there was no particular difference between them. It was all the bishops could do to keep the people from studying God's Word themselves and to make them satisfied with the presentations already given them by their teachers. Therefore the Hlshop of London bought up a lot of Tyndale's Testa ments and burned them in public. Hut more were printed and the demand In creased. People hungered for God's Word and felt suspicious of the creeds, as well they might. Then .came the Catholic Hlble in the English language, and later, our Common Version English Hible, and many others. Still the claim Is made that Protestants should not read the Catholic Hlble, and that Cath olics should not read the Protestant Hible, when In reality, the two nre practically the same good translations. It would appear that there are many religious teachers of all denominations who outwardly extol the Hible for popularity's sake, but who lu reality, Inwardly wish the people would never read it, for they .realize that the Hible Is the greatest foe In the world to eccle siastical hypocrisies and superstitious. Back to the Bible, Says Popel The present Pope with a clear vision beholds the drifting of our day nwny from nil faith and religion. Viewing the attitude of the Protestant colleges, universities nnd theological seminaries, the Pope realized that nearly nil the educated young men of Protestant lands are being taught Higher Critic ism, which Is but the polite modern name for Infidelity, lie perceived that Protestantism, which originally boast ed of its fidelity to the Hible, and pro tested against the acceptance of the teachings of the bishops as Instead ol the Divine Word, has cut loose from the i'.ilile as an Inspired authority and Is drifting upon the rocks of lllghei Criticism, rationalism, atheism. The Pope then bethought him of tho Catholic colleges, nnd found the same Higher Criticism Intruding Itself there. He perceived that this general trend nwny from God has already crushed all religion In ninety-six per cent, of the Trench, and In ninety per cent, of the Germans. Tlie awfulness of this situation greatly impressed the holy father. He realized that our In crease of education and decrease In religious faith must speedily spell an archil. At the risk of condemnation from both Catholics and Protestants as narrow-minded and bigoted, the Pope Instituted heroic measures. He gave orders that all Itoinnn Catholic ecclesiastics and teachers must be ex amined as to their faith, and must solemnly swear to It, and Hint nil books along the lines of Higher Crit icism should be banned. Pope Plus X took another bold, cour ageous step. The Pope perceiving that the masses would no longer rec ognize the P.lshops ns Divine authori ty ns successors to the Apostles, the Papal bull directed the Catholic masses to no longer look to the suc cessors of the Apostles for Instruction, but to the Hlble Itself. He urged upon the Hlshops that Catholics everywhere be encouraged to read the Hlble. This Is a move In the right direction. If Catholics should get to rending the Hlble (I care not w hether they use the Catholic Version or the Protestant Version -1 use both), Protestants may be shamed Into real Hlble study, In- sieau or uie snain niaue-believe so much practised. May we not. then, hope that all true Christians, Catholic and Protestant, of every shade, might through the honest study of the one groat Hook of nnthorlty, come back to the "one Lord, one 1'alth, ono Hap Hsin," nnd the one "Church of the Liv ing God. whose names "are written In Heaven?" Toward this end let ns labor. Let us each lie students of the Hlble, nnd lot us bo honest and loyal, not handling tho Word of God deceit fully. So shall wo have tho blessing for which Jesus prayed: "Sanctify them through Thy Truth; Thy Word Is Truth." Only "Cascareis" if Constipated SALTS, CAI,0Mi:l.

Joaquin Writes to Al Tozier Albert Tozier, of the slato labor commissioner's office, Is In receipt of an interesting letter from Joaquin Miller, the famous western poet, who is a personal friend of Mr. Tozier.

Please to thank her for me, and say that when I am again in Oregon, which I hope will be before many moons hence, I vill be most happy to meet her.

If the argument used by the Repub lican committee In Its campaign ad vertising is sound, and if It convinces, Mr. Tnft will, of courso, ro re-elected. "Remember tho panic of 1893. Re menibor the panic of 1907. No panic under Tnft. Retter be safe than sor ry" so runs the legend. The relation, casual or otherwise, between presi dents and panics, or for that matter between parties and panics, Is ex tremely vague. Your panic Is a thor ough mugwump, very much of an in dependent in politics, quite non-partisan. Panics arise from causes out Bide of politics, having very llttlo to do with politics or with the policies of presidents and pnrtles. The panic of 1893 was due lo un sound conditions In private nnd In public finance. Speculation had been loo venturesome, credit was over ex tended. To these causes was added a growing alarm about the consequences of the silver coinage act of 1890. The currency was undergoing debasement, confidence was shaken. Rut although It wns passed during a Republican ad ministration and by a Republican con gress, many Free Silver Democrats gave their vote3 to the measure. The Republicans havo always Insisted that the panic of 1S93 was due to the Wil son tariff of 1S9 I. They aro using that aigumcnt now with a solemnity which would lead- ono to roncludo that they really believe there are fools enough among the voters to ninke such silly tactics politically worth while. Again, tho panic of 1907, often called the Koosevelt panic, took Its rise in the unsoundness of banking conditions. It wns a bankers' panic, although politi cal agitation against the corporations may havo heightened Its Ill-effects through loss of confidence by Inves tors and the public generally. Rut the underlying causes were non-political. In this campaign the Republicans will have It that If Mr. Wilson Is elected and a tariff bill passed, a pan ic is Inevitable. Tariff bills do not causo jinnies. A downward revision of the present tariff might make some of Its highly prosperous beneficiaries very uneonifortnblo, but it would al most Inevitably Improve the general conditions of business nnd enhance the prosperity of the jieople, because the duties now levied are unjust, are bur densome, nre a drain ujHin the people's resources and nn obstruction to the exchanges of trade. The Republican argument put Governor Wilson and the Democrats In the iiositlon of really desiring and intending to destroy the country's business nnd bring on trade stagnation. That Is the same thing ns snyiilg that more than one-half the peojile of the country aro blind, unrea soning fanatics. We have heard this argument for forty years, until it Is listened to now with contemptuous smiles. It used to be very easy to fool ..he i ww. ! TL Where they were once tooled, they have become Informed. They have learned from high Republi can sources, the tariff board, that the old protenso of the need of duties to protect American lnbor against the VOU can squarely face the weather and th? world if you wear one of our i There is satisfaction in knowing that your overcoat will resist the storm and there is more satisfaction in know ing that the coat is admired by the people you meet, Any one of our overcoats possesses the combination de sired by most men style and utilityand don't forget that we can sell them cheaper because we sell for cash, PLANNEL SHIRTS competition of Kuropo's paujier labor Is a ghastly lie. They know that when they buy a tariff-iirotected article only a very small part of the added price pxes Into the treasury, Hie bulk of the exaction finds It way into tho bulging lockets. , of the manufacturer. The 1'ooplo are thinking a good deal less about the manufacturer's Bojihlstries nnd his outcries than they aro about their own condition. It is tho day of the consumer. If tho return of pros lieiity is a condition very favorable to President Taft's campaign, this high erst of living offsets It, and more. With food supplies nt prices that are well nigh prohibitory even for those of good incomes, It is hard to persuade the common man, the average man, that there Is any good reason for maintaining duties on the articles he needs for the nourishment of his body. Tho tariff argument works steadily and effectively against Republicans In the campaign of this year, The abuses and extortions of the tariff law, which was continued In force, almost un changed, by an act of Republican bad faith, have been too often exposed for deception to be longer possible. The hardship, the injustice, the outrage of extortionate duties are felt as they have never been felt before. The pan ic cry Is heard with derision, not only because tho peoplo are used to It but because of Its hollow Insincerity. No Intelligent person exjiects or believes that the Democratic party, should it gain tho presidency and both houses of congress, would proceed to enact a radical revision of tho Payne-Aldrich act. Radical downward revision Is Imjiossible, there will bo too many protectionists in the houso, notably from the south. As we have already pointed out, the risk is not of an ex treme jiolicy in revision, but of too gicat timidity, of coinjiromlses that will leave tho range of duties still un justly high, The peojile were cheated of their hopes when the Republicans revised tho tuiiff in 1909. They are now In a mood to Insist upon down ward revision In good faith. They clearly see that that kind of revision will be undertaken only by tho Demo crats. Tlie Republican party and the Progressive party aro committed to protection, their attitude Is practical - ly that of the standpatter..
