Dr. Ford's address, one member of the
organization after another arose and
pronounced it among: the finest produce

Rev. Dr. Cline compared tha writer of
the paper with Herbert. Spencer, saying
- that had Dr. Ford's early , environment
been more favorable he would ' easily
have been in the sama class, with,' tha
great English philosopher, and assay'
DrFord reviewed the unrest abroad
In the world today. -declaring that the
ociallstio movement ia the outcome of
: the unrest that possesses a large ma
jority of the people in every civilised
country. He said that the '. church
might have represented this spirit of
unrest, but for the tact that the church
has become a rich man's institution.
.that It lacks interest in and sympathy
, for the social movement and ha sub
; Ject herself to the criticism of caring
only for the few and neglecting the

church is changing its attitude toward
the masses, and the social movement is
'undergoing change In its attitude to

gether, nut not in any formal way.
Neither will absorb the other, neither
