Christ's divinity became the fore
most topic among Portland orthodox
clergy yesterday when dissension
broke out among the members of the
ministerial association following the
reading of a paper. "Christ and Hu
man Values." by Dr. W. H. Ineson,
pastor of the Ssunnyside Methodist
The meeting was the last of this
year's sessions, and preceding the
paper of the day. Dr. H. H. Griffis,
pastor of the First Christian church,
read his report as the retiring presi

Dr. Tneson did not directly attack
the divinity of Christ in his paper, but
several ministers interpreted it in that
liffht. At the close of its reading.
Dr. Griffis, as president, remarked:
'This has been a very stimulating
paper," and prepared to adjourn the
meeting. Rev. H. L. Cox of the
Friends church jumped to his feet and
"If this represents the thought of
Portland ministers, pity be upon us,"
he said, launching what resulted in a
peneral controversy. Several speak
ers supported him and several spoke
In ardent defense of the paper read.
The paper as a whole constituted a
plea for rational faith. "Christ mani
fested the fatherhood of God only to
the extent that perfect sonship could
reveal God's deity," said Dr. Ineson,
The known can never be fully re
vealed by the unknown. The more
perfect instrument results in the more
perfect understanding. For instance
the more perfect globe used with j
electricity the more perfect light

Mankind Held Peroonlfled.
"Christ was the complete manifes
tation of humanity. He personifies
mankind in its entirety. Nothing hap
pened at his cradle w'hich does not
occur at the cradle of every child.
The same is true of his grave. He
rose from the dead because we also
rise from the dead. As the New
Testament quotation goes: "He brought
life and immortality to light.'
"Jesus Christ was the perfect son
of God and as such became the per
fect son of man. Mankind is heir to
what Christ brought this world.
Every man is the son of God, but
Christ was perfect in his sonship
while we are imperfect.
"Once men thought that the greater
wisdom was displayed by obscuring a
matter. Now elucidation is a mark of
superior understanding. I am con
fident the age justly demands simpli

of a more practical realization of
h u man life in its relation to God. Truth
is always in danger of being lost in
the artificial .historical mysteries that
men weave around it so that any at

"The foundation of faith is reason,

paper as a new expression of an old

cording to the plans outlined by
representatives of the Pacific Coast
Coal company before a meeting of
property owners and manufacturers
at the Portland Chamber of Com
merce yesterday morning under the
auspices of the Portland Building
Owners' and Managers' association.
The meeting was prompted by the
belief of the users of fuel oil that
this fuel may'shortly become unavail
able or at least-very difficult to se
cure and that the price may be in
creased considerably. Building owners
who were present 'called attention to
recent statements by engineers and
students of the subject that fuel oil
may shortly be almost impossible to
obtain, due largely to the fact that
new processes being established for
breaking up the crude oil to give the
largest amount of valuable by-products
is leaving littlevresidue available.
L. P'erris, new resident manager of
the Pacific Coast Coal company, an
nounced that his company is ready
to go ahead with the erection of a
powdered coal plant, if sufficient
business can be assured. A second I
meeting has been called for i'riday
morning at the green room of the
Portland Chamber of Commerce, when
the matter will be considered further.
Two other representatives of -the
coal company, V. Mattison, fuel engi
neer, and N. Calkins, powdered coal
expert, were present. Both are in
Portland from. Seattle headquarters
to investigate the local situation with
the view of erecting a plant here.
Powdered coal, it was explained, is
prepared by taking the mine-run
coal, drying it thoroughly and grind-
: it up until it is about as fine as
talcum powder. It is then handled
n special tank containers, and is fed
nto the furnaces much as is fuel oil.
After some alterations, furnaces built
to handle fuel oil may use the coal
substitute. The company is already
operating a plant in Seattle, Mr.
Should the company be assured suf
ficient business here to warrant the
operation of a plant, ' erection will
start at once, and the plant should
be in operation within 120 days, ac
cording to Mr. Ferris. The structure
would cost in the neighborhood of
$200,000 and would be erected upon
tract of land belonging to the com
pany adjoining its docks at Front
