MORE RELIGION, LESS ACTING.
Ilev. Dr. Bryce, of Winnipeg, retir
ing moderator of the Canadian Pres
byterian nssembly, preached a moat
sensational sermon in Vancouver,
last week, at the close of the annual
31r. Bryce is nn earnest, able man.
He has spent his best years in the
work of the ministry. He has preach
ed to save men and not to entertain
them. He has made his religion a
regenerating force among men, and
not a dramatic art to please the
Being this type of man, he deplores
the gradual tendency among the aris
tocratic churches of the large cities
in Canada as in the United States, to
make church service a dress parade,
with theatrical effect rather than a
With scathing earnestness he con
demns the sermons made up of ora
tory .and not religion. He upbraids
the services that contains a master
piece of Jiozart, Wagner or Mendels
sohn and shuts out God. He deplores
the substitution of art for exhorta
tion. He feels that all the great
truths of the Bible and religion are
being dressed in compromising
robes to please the rich Bkeptlc and
the lethargic churchman.
He would turn drama out of the
pulpit and the opera out of the choir
and restore tbe fire of olden zeal and
the awakening of olden song,
t He accuses tbe Canadian church
of drifting away from religion. He
censures laymen for surrendering
their strict tenets and the clergy for
pandering to this "idolatry." He
cites that four-fifths of a million
people in Canada belong to the old
Presbyterian faith and that tbe la
bors of the men who made this rec
ord, are now being annulled by the
later clergy, which tolerates the pres
ent mechanical church-going.
Church-going in the United States
Is on the wane. The deep religious
spirit of fifty years ago Is seen in
very few congregations today, and
yet this does not signify that the
intrinsic religious truths are held In
any less reverence than formerly.
It does not signify that infidelity is
on the Increase. It signifies that
people change in their methods of ex
pression where once they went to
church and took deep Interest In
public confession, they now stay at
home or seek recreation with the
crowd, holding their faith Just as
sacredly as of yore, yet making It
a matter of private concern rather
than public display.

In the state of Kansas there is a

acquire provinces nnd recognize the

it sees fit. It is as if a council of

We owe all possible respect to the
supreme court, but when tho supreme
court makes a decision by a majority
of one. with the chief Justice nnd
some of his ablest associates in the
minority, It la permissible to doubt
whether the judgment is tne nnai
voice of Inspired wisdom. The dis
senting opinions are expressed in
language much stronger than could
properly be employed by n newspa
per. Chief Justice Fuller goes so far
as to call the decision a usurpation
by the court of the lawmaking power,
and says that it is plain to him that
immediately upon annexation tho
constitution of the United Stntes be
came the supreme law of Hawaii.
Justice Harlan Is still morYj emphatic.

decision is composed of Chief Justice
Fuller and Justices Harlan, Brewer

it is to be said that Justice McKcnna
is certainly not the strongest member
of the court, that Justice Day was
secretary of state at the time the Im

that he and Justice Holmes are tho
newest recruits to tho bench. In
such circumstances It is not at all In

THE NEEDLESS FLOODS.
The most distressing thing about
the flood disasters In the West is
that the destruction of life and prop
erty haB all been caused by some
thing that ought to have been a
blessing. The water that tore
through Topeka and Kansas City as
a devastating enemy would have
been a most useful frienu if it had
been properly cared for. Most of it
came through regions that will need
every drop of It later in the season.
The most precious resource of those
regions has been worse than wasted.
