to honor the hale old hearty who
sailed with Perry and who is last of
that company of American bluejackets
who roused a slumbering empire to
might among the nations.

land should extend recognition to Cap

return from an extended visit to Japan

morning when he pulled the bow oar

It is for no other purpose than that
the city should honor a citizen whose
years are many, and whose life chap

significance, that a public reception is
to be tendered to Captain Hardy to
morrow night at the Auditorium, when
all Portland will be given an oppor
tunity to pay its respects to the last
of . Perry's crew.

An opportunity for foreign-born resi

will be given at a great mass meeting
planned on the evening of the Fourth
in the Auditorium.
Secretary of War Baker and Secre

transmitted a letter to Mayor Baker
stating that leaders of the foreign-born
citizens of the Nation had requested
President Wilson to formulate Nation
wide plans for a great meeting, where
the representatives of each foreign

United States.
President's Wishes to Be Followed.
In accordance with the wishes of
President Wilson such a meeting will
be held in Portland. A committee com
posed of the representatives of foreign
born bodies will be selected to carry
out tne plans of the meeting.
A parade, which will include every
military organization in Portland and
probably a large representation of
troops from Vancouver, will be held In
the morning. Shipyard workers will
be asked to co-operate, and in addition
a large number of floats of a patriotic
nature are expected to be entered in
the pageant.
The afternoon of the Fourth will be
devoted to competitive athletics at Co
lumbia Park. Every shipyard in the
city will be asked to enter their various
teams, and the plans are for an "old-

of sports. A baseball game will prob

Salt Lake City, Utah.
To hosts of earnest and thoughtful
people, comprising many who devoutly
believe in the efficacy of our Lord's
atoning death as a means of redemption
from d-ath and salvation from sin. It is
a matter of surpassing wonder that the
sacrifice of a single life could be mailt
an effective means of emancipation for
Scriptures ante-dating the Savior's
earthly life plainly aver that the Atone
ment to be made by Him was to be &
vicarious sacrifice, voluntary and love
tnsplred on His part, and universal in
its application so far as human-kind
would avail themselves of its beneficent
means. These conditions were con
firmed by the personal affirmations of
the embodied Christ, and are attested,
by Scriptures post-dating the tragic
consummation on Calvary.
The concept of vicarious service, in
which one may act or officiate for and
In behalf of another, is as old as the
race. It is, however, fundamentally op
posed to the unscrlptural assumption
that the merits of one man may be ac
counted to the cancellation of another's
sins. Scriptures both ancient and mod
ern, the traditions of the human fam
ily, the rites of altar sacrifice, and
even the sacrileges of heathen idolatry
Involve the basal conception of vica
rious atonement. This principle, of
Divine establishment In its original and
uncorrupted form, was revealed to
Adam Pearl of Great Price, Moses
5:5-8), who offered sacrifices In the
similitude of the then future death of
the Lamb of God. and was taught and
practised by later prophets down to the
time of Christ.
The Scriptures relieve us from the
assumption that any ordinary mortal,
by voluntarily giving up his life even
as a martyr to the best of causes, could
become a ransom for the sins of his fel
lows and a victor over death. Jesus
Christ, though He lived and died as one
of the human family, was of unique
nature. Never has another such as He
wslked the earth. Christ was the only
Being among all the embodied spirit
children of God suited to and acceptable
as the great sacrifice of atonement, t!i
these definite and distinct respects:
1. He was the One chosen and fore
ordained in the heavens to this specific
2. He was and is the Only Begotten
of the Father In the body, and therefore
the only Being ever born to earth who
possessed In their fulness the Inherent
attributes of both God hood and man
hood. 3. He was and is the one and only
sinless Man who has lived in mortality.
Concerning our Lord's foreordinatlon
as the Redeemer and Savior. He has
given us personal testimony with which
the utterances of prophets who lived
before His birth and apostles who
taught after His death are In harmony.
Twenty-two centuries before tae merid
ian of time, the then unembodied C hrlst
revealed Himself to a Book of Mormon
prophet, saying "Brkald I ana ne wao '
was prepared, from the foundation of
Ike world to redeem my people. Benold
I am Jeaua Chrlat." (Book of Mormon.
Kther 3:14). Unto Moses the Father
spake, saying: Thou art la the simili
tude of mine Only Rearottea. and mlno
Only llesrottea In aad shall be the
Savior." (Moses 1:6). These Scriptures
are In accord with Peter's testimony of
Christ as " Lamb without blemish aad
without spot, who verily wan foreor
dained before the fouadatloa of the
world." (I Peter 1:19-20).
As the Eternal Father's Only Begot
ten Son In the flesh. Christ possessed
the inborn power to withstand death
Indefinitely, and this just as naturally
as that He, being the offspring of a
mortal mother, should derive the abil
ity to die. Jesus Christ Inherited
through the operation of the natural
law of heredity the physical, mental,
and spiritual attributes of His parents
the Father Immortal and glorified,
the mother human. He could not be
slain until Ills hour had come, the hour
in which He would voluntarily give un
His life, and permit HI owa deeeaae as
an act of will. How else are His defi
nite asseverations concerning Himself
to- be construed? Consider for example
this: "Therefore doth my Father love
me. because I lay down my life, that I
might take It again. No man taketh It
from me. but I lay It down of myarlr.
I hnve power to Iny It down, and I have
power to take It aaala." (John 10:17-18).
And further: "For as the Father hath
life la hlmaelf. so hath he clvm to the
Son to have life in hlmaelf." (John
Christ died, not as other men have
died or Fhall die, because of tnabllity
to escape death, but for a special pur
pose by voluntary surrender. Thus, the
atoning sacrifice was no usual death of
an ordinary man, but the decease of
One who had the power to live. It was
a sacrifice, indeed!
As a sinless Man Christ was exempt
from the dominion of Satan; and 'was
sublimely conscious o His own per
fect probity. He challenged assailants
with the pertinent demand "Which of
you eonvlneeth me of alaf" t.Tohn 8:4:
and in the hour of His entrance Into
Gethsemane solemnly averred: "The
prince of thin world rometh. and hath
nothing In me." (John 14:30).
Had our Lord died as the result of
Satan's power over Him through trans
gression. His death would have been
