in Delicate Situation.

Consul Krsklnc Gets Text of Final
Berlin Interviews Telling of Agi
tation Shown by Chancellor
at England's Stand.
The story of the last few eventful
days that Sir E. Goschen. British Am
bassador, spent at Berlin, is told in the
dispatch sent to Sir Edward Grey by
the Ambassador August 8, after his re
turn to London, a printed copy of which
has been received by Thomas Erskine,
British Consul in Portland-
"I called on the German Secretary of
State August 4 and inquired. In the
name of His Majesty's government,
whether the Imperial government would
refrain from violating Belgian neu
trality," says Ambassador Goschen, in
the dispatch, adding that the answer
was "no." as Belgian neutrality had
already been violated.
The Secretary of State, Herr von
Jagow. then told Mr. Goschen that the
Germans had been obliged to take the
step, so as to "get Into France by the
quickest and easiest way and endeavor
to strike some decisive blow as early
Herr von Jagow said that "it was a
matter of life and death for them, as
If they had gone by the more south
era ronte they could not have hoped,
In view of the paucity of roads and
the strength of the fortresses, to have
got through without formidable oppo
sition entailing great loss of time. This
loss of time, the Secretary said, would
have meant time gained for the Rus
sians, and rapidity of action was the
great German asset, while that of Rus
sia was an Inexhaustible supply of
German Agitation Asserted.
Ambassador Goschen tells how he en
deavored to get the Germans to with
draw from Belgium and how he was
told It was too late; how he asked for
his passports; how he called on the
German Chancellor and found him
"The Chancellor said that the step
taken by His Majesty's government was
terrible to a degree," says the dispatch.
"Just for a word, 'neutrality,' a word
which in war time had been often dis
regarded. Just for a scrap of paper,
Great Britain was going to make war
on a kindred nation which desired
nothing better than to be friends with
her. What we had done, he said, was
unthinkable; It was like striking a man
from behind while he was fighting for
his life between two assailants, and he
held Great Britain responsible for all
the terrible events that might hap
pen." Riot at Bmbanr Described.
Ambassador Goschen tells in the dis
patch how an extra Issued by the Ber
liner Tageblatt late at night, saying
Great Britain had declared war,
brought a mob to the British embassy
which overpowered the police, broke
the windows and began to throw
stones. Then, on a. telephone appeal
to Herr von Jagow, an adequate force
of mounted police was sent, and order
Her von Jagow called a little later
and said that "the behavior of his coun
trymen made him feel more asrlamed
than he had words to express." He
blamed the disturbance on the "pesti
lential Tageblatt," which had "some
how got hold of the news, and upset
all his calculations" by Issuing the ex
tra without government authoriza
tion. The following day, August 5. the
Kaiser sent an aide-de-camp, with a
note saying that while he regretted
the occurrence of the night before. It
would furnish an idea of the feelings
of his people respecting the action of
Great Britain in "Joining with other
nations against her old allies of Water
loo." "His Majesty also begs you to tell
the King," ran the note, "that he has
been proud of the titles of British
Field Marshal and British Admiral,
but that in consequence of what has
occurred he must now at once divest
himself of these titles."
Courtesy Shown By Officials.
Ambassador Goschen closes his dis
patch by saying that he received noth
ing but courtesy from the German For
eign Office through the whole trying
ordeal; that his assistants worked
night and day with scarcely any rest,
and that great assistance was given
him by his American "colleague. Am
bassador Gerard, and his staff, who
were undeterred by the hootings and
hissings with which they were often
greeted when they came to the British
Embassy. The Journey by rail to the
Dutch frontier was uneventful, beyond
"the yelling of patriotic songs and
few Jeers and insulting jestures by
the mobs at the railway stations," and
the German Colonel who acted as es'
cort was most courteous and consid
"Mr. Gerard, by his calmness and
savoir-faire," Ambassador Goschen
adds, "and his firmness In dealing with
the Imperial authorities, gave full as
surance that the protection of British
subjects and Interests could not have
been left In more efficient hands."

"Our people are all of one blood,"

Sermon Thoughts From
FAITH In the Divine Power was the
m. general memo or. a large number
of sermons delivered by the Portland
pastors yesterday. Dr. Frank L. Love-
land, pastor of the First Methodist
Church, varied the regular order of
services by having as his topic, "The
Star-Spangled Banner an Agency of
the Cross." His was an inspiring ad
dress, which was heard by "a large con
gregation, with the members of the
Grand Army of the Republic and the
Women's Relief Corps as the guests of
the evening. Miss Hazelle Loveland
sang for the last time In Portland prior
to leaving ror New York City to study,
EV. J. J. STATJB, Sunnyside Con
gregational Church, told his con
gregation that the church was face to
face with a great mission. He cited
the possibilities offered by the condi
tions of the- day for the church to help
strength and sincerity. Anyone who
has honest doubts may, if he be sin
cere, compel these doubts somewhere
along the road of his blundering
progress to give place to an equally
honest belief. Our faith is true when
its contents are true. Its contents are
true when drawn from God, the su
preme source of all truth, and when
they make us better men and women.
The relative is in what we are when
we strive to improve; the absolute real
is In the ideal when that ideal is God.
Between the reltive and the absolute
we find God working in us to will and
to work for his good pleasure. Then
follows the hopeful attitude toward the
future. Optimism becomes the only
mood of faith and the growing con
ception of truth calls for a growing
creed wherein our deeds must com
mend our creeds."
R. FLETCHER HOMAN, president
llvered a masterly sermon last night
at Centenary Methodist Church, taking
as his text: "The Kingdom of God is
not eating and drinking, but righteous
ness, peace and Joy in the Holy Spirit.'
He said.: "Mankind cannot be bound
by law to serve God and be religious.
No church or ecclesiastical system will
suffice to relate people to humanity
or to eternal life. Likewise the king
dom of God is not a social aristocracy.
Being a member of the four-hundred
does not argue that the Individual be
longs to the assembly of saints. Social
distinction is not a mark of eternal
redemption, intellectual supremacy,
likewise, is not an evidence of elec
tion to eternal- favor. Brilliancy of
mind often goes with a corrupt life.
The kingdom of God is righteousness
right relation to men and to God,
A clean conscience, pure desires to
serve 'humanity and divinity well and
sincerely should be the objects of life.
To be at peace with man and God is
necessary, but peace has sometimes to
be won by fighting. The kingdom of
God is joy, happiness In life s rela
tions and prospective destinies Joy
that is brought about by constancy of
relation with the Almighty.

SOLEMN HIGH MASS SUN
EV. W. B. HINSON. First Baptist
yesterday ' morning on the topic, "The
Devil in the Church." He said: "The
text, "My God shall supply all your
needs,' is one that is most comforting.
Self revealing is the consciousness of
our needs. The revelation of human
needs is an interesting study. The
dimensions of one's needs evidences
the capacity of one's soul. "We are
never at rest till we rest In God.' Con
sciousness of continued need of God is
one of the growing-pains of the souL
Our consciousness of need will con
dition our reception thereof. The strug
gle of the soul to attain is its tragedy
and eulogy both. Religion in the heart
means the upheaval of the whole life.
The soul is evermore calling for some
thing stronger than is the pull of the
world, the flesh and the devil. Suf
ficiency for every need Is found in
Christ, who sunders the soul from its
old environment and creates within it
a passion for holiness. The Divine dy
namic power breaks the power of sin
and renews with Divine power the
strength of the souL Aught that with
stands all this savors of the devil."
E must remember that, accord
ing to standards of the Spirit
ual Master, there are many people who
are cultured, charming and even effi
cient, who would have been assigned
by him to the defective classes," as
serted Rev. H. M. Ramsey at. St. Ste
phens' Pro-Cathedral yesterday.
"Like all of the great religious teach
ers of men," he continued, "Jesus in
sisted that the development of the
spiritual perception was necessary to
real manhood and the most satisfying
element in human nature."

its third anniversary, yesterday morn

congregation attended. Solemn high
mass was celebrated by the pastor.
Rev. Father George Thompson, assist

Angel, who officiated as subdeacon.
The address was delivered by Rev.
George J. Campbell, assistant pastor,
who returned recently from Rome,
where he was ordained a short time
ago. The address was based on the
life and repentance of Mary Magdelene.
"It is fitting. Indeed, today, that we
should be thankful," he said, "for this
is the third milestone in the growth
and progress of this parish. That is
but a short time, but permanent work
for Christ has been done in this parish,
and for morality and righteousness.
Bright Future Seen.
"While the fruits of our labor in
the past three years have been large,
the future has greater things in store
for this parish. This has been a pros

to be done. The importance of the
church' cannot be overestimated. It is

where all who are thirsty may drink.
Moral- degeneracy and unwholesome

churches and no religious influences.
The church is the center of hope and

Then followed an account of the life
and repentance of Mary Magdalene,
the speaker pointing out that with

will be ineffectual.
It was announced that the third an
niversary will be celebrated further
October 6 at the home of Mr. and Mrs.
James F. Clarkson, at 689 East Twen
ty-second street North. Mr. and Mrs.
Clarkson were prominent in the early
history of the parish, the first services

of the house having been turned over
to the parish as a chapel.
The church property consists of a

END OF GIGANTIC WORLD-WAR.
Church, In his morning sermon on
Faith as a Form of Personal Power,'
made an eloquent appeal to men and
women to hold by their faith. He said
"We live not by doubt, but by faith
Many men and women consider that
faith is but an incident. I am trying
to show you that it is the vital essence
of life. It is a vast princlDle. an
energy, a power that comes to us in
the realization of ourselves. In busi
ness coleges and training classes for
young men emphasis is laid on the
passing out of the negative Into that
which is positive. Doubt is negative.
Faith is positive. When man is indif
ferent to faith his whole life is futile.
The passing of faith will leave you
dead and dull. Do not lose the divine
luster. For those who are going away
to college I- say: "Hold --onto your
faith. In its destruction is the de
struction of the best in life. We live
not by doubt, but by faith."

livered yesterday by H. W. Cottrell,
president of the Western Oregon Con

Mr. Cottrell quoted the Book of Dan

"Thus will be fulfilled the prophecy
made so long ago, that 'he (the Turk)
would plant the tabernacles, of his pal
ace between the seas in the glorious
holy mountain,' which is Jerusalem,"
said Mr. Cottrell.
"But the prophecy continues that 'he
shall come to his end and none shall
help him.' The next event mentioned
in the Bible is that 'then at that time
shall Michael stand up,' that King
Jesus shall stand up, probation will
close and there will be 'a time of trou
ble such as never was since there was
a nation, and that the 'whole world'
will be led into a general war ending
