for elan s, but In July demanded $1.50
an Increase of 60 per cent Mr. Hal
ferty believes the men were entitled to
an Increase, but considering the
clams and the Irregularity of secur

tailing short runs, thinks the price
asked was somewhat exorbitant. But

promise could not be effected. . A' per

The difficulty of securing clams at
Ocean bench, Mr. Halferty believes. Is
owing to the Jetty, It being so shu

channel la deposited on the beach,
thereby concealing the clnm holes. By
the season after the Jetty Is completed
and things become a fixture the clams
will doubtless be secured as plenti

Two looted Divines Visit Us
and Are Greeted by a
Bishop Cranston used as a text, "Ye
Holy Ohost Is come upon you," and
from It, In his own convincing and lu
cid style and with convincing logic,
he sought to prove that the Holy Spirit
Is the promised and the actual guide
and Illuminator In all progress and
development, and recommendid to
ministers present a fuller Investigation
of such doctrine.
He n alntalncd that existing material
and spiritual force have existed from
the beginning; that material force
are Impossible to thoroughly under
stand or explain except In regard to
the results of their application, and
that the same la necessarily true of
forces relatln to the spiritual life.
That the same laws which govern the
one also govern the other; that the
source of these laws and forces Is the
creator, and that the third person of
the Trinity, of whom It Is written, "He
Will guide you into ALL truth," Is He
through whom these law and forces
are to be manifested, experienced, and
eventually perahps understood. After
portraying evidence Illustrative of
Physical forces, the Bishop commented
jon the results attending the application
of spiritual forces, the wonderful trans
formation In the lives of great sinners,
who became subject to their workings.

accepting Christianity, forscok the

modes of living, and became literally

U the evening service trw Rev. Dr.
. t. C. Iliff addressed a crowded church.
It Is seldom that any conjjr nation
I get such an opportunity of hearing
the gospel preached in such a nuinmr
as Dr. Iliff handled it. 1 1 siioa'fin of
church extension the reverend geutle-
i ,.. in ,ha llllKi.,Mt wv. detailed
! n few of his early experiences. Ming
ling humor with pathos, his address
waa a treat No matter what a man s
creed might be, he had an opportuntiy
of hearing an interesting account of
early struggles by a mm who. in his
younger days, took an ehanoes In the
interest of bis cause. Dr Illff hs a
winning way of telling his Hcry. Whtre
sun.e men wri' I rant und shout, he
curbs himseif and with suppressed
force demands the whole soul of nls
h'tirft's, Hli remlnisc'ices of Lincoln,
of the Sioux Indians, of Grant and
others who helped him In the early
days were full of Interest His account
of one or two helpers, picked up from
practically lost men, waa convincing
os to what Christianity can do. Dr.
Illff prepared himself for his hard work
by picking out an Ohio girl to help
him but then he had not visited As
toria and Mrs. Illff will not feel hurt If
we say that excepting herself we can
beat the Ohio girls here In Oregon.
Dr. Illff incidentally emphasized one
fact. It was frequently due to the
large-heartedness of people outstle
the church that he was so successful.
He looked round for large htarts, he
found many men who would help the
kind of man the Doctor Is when a less
broad mind might have alienated them.
It was a sermon which plainly said
be charitable. The Church Extension
fund does not owe all of its great suc
cess to good church members alone,
the men who have commanded the es
teem of all classes by their genuine
Christianity, and by their recognition
of the fact that hearts sometime beat
in a true vein outside a church.
The service was well worth attend
ing and the musie deserves a special
mention. The anthem was very sweet-
Iv rendered, whoever they may be

solo was sung by Miss Rannells. It
is no emntv compliment to congratu
late that young lady on the result of
her musical training, for every into-
ntlon. every vibration told of her cu1
ture. Miss Mijah Frederlckson played
a violin obligato and a s;eclal word
remains for the lady who offlc:ated at
the orean. it Is hard to make ama

Mls Rannell's aco t paniement Is an
nrcnnlst unusually clever and natural
lv artis'le. And music Is at Its grand
est when volunteered to the worship
There was one thing lacking in the
service. The writer spent many years
In protecting missionaries in unclvilix-
ed lands, where thousands or semi
civilised savages are told every Sab-
hnth mornlntr that m ions are pray
ing for them every Sunday. They
believe It possible that
rhnrch extension meeting could be
held without one word of prayer for
those who extend the church with
(hr.h. tivia In their hands.
