MORALITY IS DEFINED
Kev. Harold H. Griffis Asserts
Man Should See Consequences
of Today's Conduct.
It Is always a short-sighted Pol
icy to be malicious," said Rev. Har
old H. Griffis yesterday to his
audience of the First Christian
church now worsniping in i
Lincoln high school auditorium
while waiting for its new building.
"The apostle Paul in his famous ode
to love pointed out the philosophy
of kindness when he said that love
suffereth long and is kind. The
more exact translation of this Paul
ine utterance would be. love's long
minded and is kind.' The philosophy
of the whole matter is that the long
thought, the far thought, always
. shows the folly of unkindness.
Hatred. malice. intolerance are
short-minded. They are impetuous
and hasty, and the man who looks
pimply to the immediate future will
yield to their influence.
Kntreil I'hIm Sentiment.
"Hatred is not only an unhappy
and unholy sentiment it is an un
wise sentiment. It lacks foresight.
It is a symptom of that disease
classed in pathology as mjopia
near-sightedness. Even your smooth
tongued politician knows this.
You mav oppose him with all your
might and denounce him as a rascal,
a thief and a grafter, but if he is
up to his professional standard, he
nver shows the least sign of irri

that, notwithstanding yqur open
hostility, he is going to win your
respect and good will and prove to
you that he is all right. He ma De

Time Cilven New irwpoint.
Loiig-mindedness is the thing
needed to restore amicable rela

minded and is kind. Love can af
ford to be kind because it ponders
results. Time, we are told, heals
many wounds. Not that time alone

time can do this: it can give us
new viewpoint it can put our
quarrels into a different perspective
and show us the folly of our ani
mosity. And the power to discern
this future' perspective with which
we shall some day come to look
noon our actions is what I mean by
long-mindedness and this is what I
understand was in the thought of
the anostle when he said: 'Love
suffereth long, and is kind.'
'Lomt-mindedness is the key to
morality. What is morality? It
the science of right living. That is,
it involves a system of laws based
upon some standard of right and
wrong, liut what is a law'.' It is a
process of uniiormity whereby the
same effetts always follow the
same caases. a moral law eing a
process of uniformity whereby the
events of tomorrow grow out of

then, a man must honor these proc
esses of uniformity and to do that

the future to see the consequences

"Our views of life are to be as
long as life itself. We are to think
forward to the final outcome of
what we propose to do. to consider
where and how it will end and what

we may all obtain if we want it.
There is much about the future that
is necessarily hidden. We may not
lie prophets or the sons of phophets.
Nevertheless there is a future into
whose revelat'ons we may all pene
trate, and that is the future of hu
man character. We can see, if we
want to see, what shall be on the
morrow of the moral world, and
nothing can change the vision but
a miracle itseif. For it is no more
certain that two and two will con

Rev. Mr. Parker Calls Attention
to Visit of Jesus to Bethany.
A sermon calling attention to the
visit of Jesus to the home of Mary
and Martha was preached yesterday
morning by Rev. B. Earle Puker,
pastor of the First Methodist church,
who has just returned from his va
cation. Mr. Parker emphasized the
fact that the incident of Jesus visit
appears immediately after the par
able of til Good Samaritan, which
was the answer of Jesus to the law
yer's question "What shall I do to
inherit eternal life?"
.. "In some quarters there is a grow
ing feeling that to play the part of
the Good Samaritan is one essential
to a claim on eternal life." said Mr.
Parker. He affirmed that correctly
understood this parable does answer
the question, but the quiet hour of
meditation and contemplation at the
feet of Christ which exalts the char
acter of Mary in the story is essen
tial to playing adequately the part
of the Good Samaritan.
"Like Mary in the Bethany home,
we mav be so busy trying - to au
something for Christ that we have
no time to let him do the needful
things for us," said Mr. Parker.
"Tnis is a practical-minded age.
Service is the modern slogan in
everything from business to re
ligion. This is as it should, be, but
we must not lose sight of the fact
that the motive power and th en

CONVENTION IS DISCUSSED
ltcv. Thomas Jenkins Talks About
threat Task of Church.
At St. David s Kpiscopal church
yesterday morning, Rev. Thomas
Jenkins rendered a dissertation on
the "General Convention at Work."
He spoke of the offices of the con
vention in connection with the great
task of the church as a whole, and
the matters which are scheduled to
come before the body in a few days.
'To use our Lord's own symbols.
the kingdom of God is both a treas
ure to be guarded and a seed to be
cultivated." said Rev. Mr. Jenkins.
'The agency or instrument which
He designed for this task is the
church. He reminded the first
apostles that their treasure was to
be held in earthly vessels. At. all
times there have been men who have
forgotten this wise counsel.
'iObviously He intended the church
to adapt itself to changing condi
tions that it might the more ade
quately minister to the enlarging
needs of human life.
Education and philanthropy
therefore soon became a part of His
programme for the carrying out of
the mission. It is well to remember
that the church is a body, an or
ganization, which stops growing and
adapting herself at the peril of de
cay. It must change if it would ren
der a full meed of service to a world
that is marked most by its changes.
"The matters to come before the
convention will have to do (1) with
adapting her liturgy to the lin
guistic changes of our time, to fresh
educational standards, and to a new
social and missionary outlook; (2)
to a revision of missionary method
in the light of changing world re
lationships and an enlarged knowl
edge of human needs; and (3) to

Stockholders in the defunct State
Bank of Portland must today pay
the 100 per cent assessment levied
against them or face suit by the
state superintendent of banks. Less
than 10 per cent of the $300,000 due
as assessments against that-amount
of capital stock had been actually
paid in or pledged by Saturday, ac
cording to those now in charge of
liquidating the bank.
In a letter recently sent out to
the stockholders, approximately 240
in number, they were given until
August 20 to pay the amount due
from them under the state bank
ing laws. Before Frank C. Bram
well, state superintendent of banks,
left on the official trip that has
taken him to Petersburg, Alaska, he
made all arrangements with the law
firm of Bowerman & Kavanaugti,
attorneys of his department, to in
stitute collection suits against
stockholders failing to pay up by
this date. Jay Bowerman said yes
terday that he will this morning
receive a list showing tnose wno
have paid or made arrangement to
pay and those against whom legal
proceedings must be taken. His
firm will lose no time, he said, in
proceeding against the delinquents.
Atuiesament Is Opposed.
Meanwhile approximately 200
stockholders who acquired their in
terest in the State bank through
merging of the State and People's
bank less than a year ago,- are co
operating in an effort to avoid the
assessment liability. They held a
meeting last week, pledged $1 a
share' for an expense fund and got
under way an investigation of all
phases of the merger of the two
banks. On their behalf an account
ant is now scanning the books of
the State bank with particular ref
erence to its condition at the time
of the consolidation.
It is the hope of these stockhold
ers of the old people s oaiiK tnai
they can . show that they were more
or less defrauded by misrepresenta
tions as to condition of the defunct
bank. Facts of this sort uncovered
in their investigation may be used
in a legal action seeking to
aside the consolidation deal and re
cover from the State bank officials
who engineered the merger.
Time Extension Unlikely.
Because this group of stockhold
ers cling to the hope that they may
wriggle out of liability under the
assessment, it is not expected that
many more of them will pay the
$100 per share assessed against
them on this final day of
grace for such payments. No
extension of time will be granted
according to Attorney Bowerman,
so the preparation and filing of
suits against them will proceed just
as against all other stockholders
liable for an assessment.
Out of the total of stockholders
interested in the State bank at the
time of its failure last February
far the greater majority, or fully
200, had been shareholders in the
People's bank. The State bank had
only some 30 stockholders at the
time of the consolidation.
Payments Total 924,000.
Actual payments of assessments
up until closing time on Saturday
were said to have aggregated but
$24,000. Several persons had, how
ever, paid only a par of the amounts
assessed against them. These and
others who had definitely pledged
payment at a given date will pay
over a total ot about $30,000, it was
said. It has been the smaller
stockholders principally who have
paid up. The largest assessment
paid in was said to have been one
of $6000, levied against a holder of
60 shares. Some stockholders are
admittedly unable to meet the dou
ble liability assessment and will
doubtless face judgments by the
courts if proceedings of the state
banking department meet with suc

'WIRED WIRELESS" TESTED
Eastern Power Companies Exper
iment With New System.
-Eastern electrical power com
panies are experimenting with, the
new "wired wireless system in
vented by General Squires, head of
the signal corps, for communication
purposes between their plants, ac
cording to H. V. Bozell, electrical
engineer and editor of tine Elec
trical World, who was in Portland
last week. ,
One concern, the North American
which controls the power and trac
tion facilities in a number of east
ern cities, has already made a
number of extensive tests with the
use of high frequency currents on
their power lines, with highly suc
cessful results, declares Mr. Bozell.
Whether the power companies
will extend this system to the
broadcasting of entertainment into
the homes where their lines run is
at the present time unlikely, in the
opinion of the electrical engineer.
"Radio broadcasting in the east
ern cities is attended by a good
deal of confusion at the present
time," said Mr. Bozell. "There are
too many stations within close
proximity to each other and it is
almost impossible to form a sched
ule so that there will be no inter
ference. The wired wireless sys
tem, if used for entertainment
broadcasting, would do away with
much of this confusion. Improved
radio receivers which use the power
lines instead of the storage and dry
batteries and also as an antenna.
have already been brought to no
tice. With such type receivers in
use, the power companies may in
the future take up the broadcast

their patrons. However, it is im
