Co-operation, the keynote of the
Laymen's Missionary Convention now
in session in Portland, was sounded
yesterday in all the meetings and con
ferences held in the 'White Temple.
Herman l". Swartz, of the Congrega
tional Board of Missions of New York,
who was one of the afternoon speak
ers, voiced the dominant sentiment
when he suggested that in every grow
ing city should be established an inter
denominational board of reference to
get the best out of the efforts of the
various churches; to prevent over
lapping; to solve, many problems that
now confront the churches, and to
correlate the working powers of the
Practical Service Aim.
His suggestion was greeted with
rounds of applause. In all the ad
dresses and activities of the convention
the feeling that inspires the clergy
and laymen appears to be a desire to
make the church do practical every
"In the congested districts of the
cities, where the need of the church
is the greatest, there we seem to bo
the biggest failures," said Dr. Swartz.
"It Is barely possible that wc are
working along on traditions." he sug
gested. "Let us make the church meet
the everyday needs.
1 Open Church Advocated.
"Let us keep our churches open and
doing something all the time. Don t
let us satisfy ourselves with an in
vestment of property and a tine build
ing; but. rather, let us have an invest
ment of service."
"The difficulty in tho cities and
towns is often that the denominations
are so busy fighting each other they
haven't time to fight the devil."
The second day's meetings were well
attended. At night the men filled the
entire auditorium. The registration
went over the 2100 mark. In the morn
ing and afternoon tire lower floors of
church and Sunday school were occu
pied by the men and the women were
in the galleries. Men only attended
Foreign Lands "Visited."
Bishop J. W. Bashford. of China,
made a stirring address at the night
session. "China Today and Tomorrow"
was his subject. J. I'. McNaughton
.spoke on "War Experiences in Turkey."
and William M. Gilbert exhibited mo
tion pictures demonstrating "The Dawn
of a New Day" and "Around the World
in Motion Picture." The evening meet
ing was prefaced liy a song service led
by the convention soloist, Ernest W.
Heavy Toll Levied.
The great sacrifice made by the
Turks at the outbreak of the was was
emphasised by Mr. McNaughton. who
said in part:
"The calling to the colors of 1.000.000
men is not strikingly impressive when
one thinks of other lands summoning
three and four times that number. But
for' a land like Turkey, supposed to be
in a helplessly exhausted state after
the Balkan war and the struggle with
Italy over Tripoli, It is to the credit
of the land of the Sultan that so un
usual an undertaking could be even
contemplated. Very probably her de
pleted resources were supplemented
from outside, but the chief burden was
borne by herself. I do not believe that
the people of any other nation now en
gaged in the war have been called
upon to make such unusual sacrifices.
All Ottoman subjects at the outbreak
of the war were called upon to con
tribute 25 per cent of all moveable pos
sessions with the exception of house
