Teaching of Missionaries Is
Morals Not Christ,
RELIGION NOW AVOIDED.
The I. B. S. A. Foreign Mitiioni In
vestigation Committee, After Round
the World Tour, Report In New York
Hippodrome Mase Meeting That a
Thousand Times $30,000,000 Would
Not Be Sufficient to Convert the
World Nothing Short of Christ's
Kingdom Will Do It
Now York, March
3l! The Interua
tional Bible Stu
secured the Hip
podrome in which
to hear the Report
of Its Committee
on Foreign Mis
tion. The spacious
i Vf cr
crowded. Prof. F.
Secretary of the
Committee, announced that the Report
as a whole had been submitted to the
Association and was in the printer's
hands, to appear in pamphlet form il
lustrated. It will shortly be procur
able at the small price of fire cents per
copy, postpaid to any address free to
the poor. The conclusion of the Re
port Is in the nature of a Summary,
which he read. We note some of Its
more salient points, as follows:
8ummry of Report
Oriental Christians are about as sin
cere, intelligent and earnest as the
average of church attendents in Eu
rope and America few saintly.
Christianizing endeavors seem pret
ty generally to have ceased! Present
missionary endeavors are almost exclu
sively along the line of secular educa
tion and medical aid.
There is less need of Academic and
Collegiate education, such as the mis
sionaries forward, than for Common
Schooling. The general Common School
education could best be furnished by
the government and along unsectarian
lines, after the method followed under
the United States' supervision In the
Philippine Islands. The tendency of
the times In the Orient, as In the Occi
dent, Is toward unbelief in any religion.
The Orientals are remarkably toler
ant of all religions, and are often per
plexed at the Missionary competition,
and opposition between Christian de
nominations. They would accept Chris
tianity if it could demonstrate its su
periority. Orientals are not heathen-savages,
but their educated classes Include
splendid specimens of noble manhood,
the moral and intellectual peers of Eu
ropeans and Americans. The masses
of these people are less vicious, less
rude, more kind and considerate than
nre the masses of Europe and Ameri
ca. Drunkenness and outward im
modesty are almost unknown.
Many of the churches are self-sustaining
and the Orientals prefer to
have them so, as they desire native
preachers, and to manage their own
The very suggestion of the world's
conversion is ridiculous to the peoples
of the East including the Mission
aries. The interest on $:'..
000,000, or the principal multiplied a
thousand times, would accomplish lit
tle except along the lines of secular
education nothing as respects the
world's conversion. Nothing short of
"'the Kingdom of God's dear Son" can
meet the Issue.
Pastor Russell's discourse follows:
Pastor Russell's Hippodrome Address.
"Ask of Me and I will give Thee the
heathen for Thine inheritance, and the
uttermost parts of the earth for Thy pos
session." Psalm II, 8.
Tho prophetic words, addressed by
Jehovah to his Son. the Messiah, con
tinually recurred to my mind as I
mingled with and observed the peoples
of India, China, Japau and the Philip
pines during our recent World Tour.
Then certain questions came before my
mind, which with their answers I will
place before you.
The first question was, Why do we
fall these people heathent They nre
not barbarous, not savages, not lawless
people. Indeed, long centuries ago,
when our forefathers were burbnrinns,
these hnd much of the civilization
which they still retnln. But 1 said,
we call the:n iientlien because the P.l
ble so refers to them. Iet us see how
and why the Bible uses this term and
what Is Its Mlgiiiticiinre In Bible
usage the word rendered "heathen" Is
the s.u.ie iih Is ho met lines rendered na
tion and Centilr. For centuries It ap
plied to all peoples outside the little
nation of Israel, becauso that one na
tion had entered Into Covenant-relationship
with God, and had become
Ills people. Ills dominion.
All the other tiations, not thus relat
ed to God by Covenant, were styled
heathen; ail the outside nations were
aliens, strangers and foreigners from
the Covenants and promises made to
Israel And this same term continued
to be applicable after the coming of
Jesus. Even though the Gospel favor,
which was originally offered to the
Jews, was later thrown open to Cor
nelius and all Gentiles, or heathens,
only those who accepted Its terms, and
came Into Covenant-relationship with
God through the begetting of the Holy
Spirit only these. Israelites indeed,
are properly reckoned as me'uibers of
spiritual Israel, of whom St. Peter leiU
us. "Ye are a Royal Priesthood, a holy
nation, a peculiar people." Conse
quently all others than Jews aud Spir
itual Israelites are heathens.' wheth
er they live iu the Orient or the Occi
dent. Two Civilizations Contrasted.
Our second question was. On the
whole, to what extent is our Western
civilization, which 'is often called
Christian civilization, superior to that
of the F.astV
Considerable could be said in favor
of each. We who have beeu accus
tomed from childhood to Western
methods, customs, dress, etc.. prefer
our own. but tho Eastern peoples evi
dently prefer their owu. und are loth
to change to ours. They are. however,
now passively admitting the superior
ity of ours In that they are gradually
adopting our schooling system, mili
tary system, naval system and voting
But in our contrasting the two civili
zations, are we not apt to forget that
the very features of our civilization,
which are now being nccepted ns su
perior in the East, nre comparatively
new to ourselves? Where were our
public schools and compulsory educa
tion a century ago? It is only twenty
years ago that Great Britain adopted
the present method. Where were our
railroads, which they are now adopt
ing? Let us remember that there was
not a rail in the world, nor a locomo
tive, nor a car, a hundred years ago.
The East Is rapidly introducing te
legraphy, the telephone, the wireless
system, the electric railways; but how
long have we bad these In the West?
Less than a century some of them
for only ten years. Viewing the mat
ter from this standpoint should help
to keep us of the West quite humble
when we think of and speak of the
awakening in the East in China. Ja
To What Extent Has "Christian Civili
sation" Blessed the World?
That Christ's teachings have brought
great blessings wherever they have
been received Is. we bold, beyond dis
pute. Individuals have been blessed
by the precious truth of Christianity
rich and poor, of every nation, kindred
and tongue. To these the Gospel Mes
sage has brought peace with God
through faith In the Lord Jesus Christ
and the salvation provided through
Him. To these the Instruction of the
Bible and the guidance of the Holy
Spirit have brought the fruitage of the
Spirit To these It has brought "the
peace of God which passeth all under
standing," ruling in their hearts at all
times, and under all conditions wheth
er "in sickness or health, In poverty's
vale, or abounding in wealth."
But our question does not relate to
these saintly followers of the teachings
of Jesus, who walk in nis footsteps.
Our question is in respect to the civili
zation which Identifies Itself with
Christianity, without accepting the
terms of dlscipleshlp. Has this civiliza
tion brought to the masses of Europe
and America great blessing, and, if It
be extended to the far East, will it
prove a blessing to the hundreds of
If larger houses, better streets and
sewers, better water supplies, better
clothing, better schools, etc, are bring
ing to the people of Europe and Amer
ica more Joy. more peace, more happi
ness, more contentment, niore kind
ness, more usefulness In the present
life and more preparation for the life
to come, theu our Western civilization
Is a blessing to us, and would doubt
less prove a blessing to the far East.
But has It brought these blessings?
Alas, no! As far as our observations
In China and Japan go, we are led to
believe that their peoples are far hap
pier, fur more contented, than the peo
pies of Europe nnd America. We are
not blaming this upon Christianity,
mark you we have not yet Raid why it
Is so. We are merely noting facts,
which must he manifest to everyone
who has seen the two In contact
A Reason For This.
Our fourth questlou was, Why Is It
so? What Vecullnrltles are connected
with Christian civilization or the
Christian teachings which ' produce
such diverse results bringing one
class, the saintly followers of Jesus,
Into the utmost peace and joy, and
bringing others, the masses who are
merely nominal Christians, Into this
most unsatisfactory and unhappy con
dition of any people In the world, even
when they are enjoying greater bless
ings and luxuries than the majority?
There Is but one answer to this ques
tion: It Is because the teachings of
Christ carry with them a broadening
of mind, an emancipation from super
stition, a spirit of liberty. Tme, there
were Dork Ages, during which many
so-called Christian superstitions pros
pered. But sin l) superstitions were
not the teuehl'ins of Jcrus and His
Apostleu, but the misrepresentations
of their teachings. Those superstitions
did Imli'ed for a time make the peo
ple of llurope drowsy, and it was the
custom of such religious teachers to
restrain human thought and to fetter
and becloud the Intellects over which
they hnd Influence.
We are not discussing such condi
tions, but merely the general influenco
of the teachings of Jesus and the
Apostles and thp Prophets of old. The
discontent which we are noting began
to come to Europe at the very time
when the Bible was brought out from
obscurity. It Is the teachings of the
Bible that hare bnd the enlightening
effect upon all the nations which have
been In contact with them. It is the
Bible's teachings that have brought tho
special rest to some hearts, and the spe
cial discontent to others-tbo masses.
This la the answer. The Bible alone,
of all religious books, seta forth promi
nently the equality of all men before
the Almighty God. This thought once
grasjied breaks all fetters of the mind.
But all are not prcpured for such lib
ertysome evidently would enjoy great
peace and would be more quiet, more
reverential and more submissive if they
continued bound with a measure of
superstition, than if the truth should
make them free.
The only persons who can rightly
appreciate and properly enjoy full lib
erty are those who have made a full
consecration of themselves to the
Lord those who have given over all
earthly ambitions and favors to the
one great ambition of !ha Gospel of
Christ to become heirs of God and
Joint-heirs with Jesus Christ their
Lord. Those only enn be fully en
trusted with liberty who have realized
the Imperfection of all human Judg
ment, and who have accepted Instead
of their own the Divine will. This Is
the class of whom St. Paul spoke,
saying, "We have the mind of Christ,"
and this ho declares Is the only "spirit
of o sound mind" In the world at the
Nevertheless, some of the saintly
people nre disesteemed by many of
tho worldly-minded who are moving
heaven nnd enrth at home-ami abroad
to amass wealth, power aud fame for
themselves. their families, their friends,
their names, none of whom are con
tent, none of whom are satisfied, none
of whom nre at pence, either with God
or with themselves. Who can doubt
that the carrying of our western civi
lization to the people of the cast will
carry to them similar discontent, un
rest, unhnpplness. anger, malice, envy,
hatred and strife which Is peculiar to
the Occident? But most likely the
effect of the Western civilization of
the Chinese will be to wake up her
hundreds of millions to discontent and
strife, nnd possibly bring anarchy to
her doors sooner than It will come to
Europe nnd America.
"Ask and I Will Give the Heathen."
But our text declares that If Mes
siah will ask of the Father, He will
be given the heathen for an Inher
itance, and the uttermost parts of the
earth for His Kssesslon. Will He
ask for them? Why has ne not al
ready asked for them, and what would
ne do with them, aud would not nis
dealing with them have much the
same Influence that the Gospel Mes
sage now produces to make them dis
satisfied? Our Lord Intimates most distinctly
Ills reoson for not asking for the
heathen nt the first advent In Ills
prayer the same night In which He
was betrayed to death ne said, "I
pray not for the world (the heathen),
but for those whom thou hast given
Me"-the household of faith. Ills foot
step followers, "the Church of the
Flrst-lwrn, whose names nre written
The Redeemer knew the Father's
will and prayed only In harmony
therewith. He knew that the first
work of the Divine Plan was to he
the calling and testing of an elect
"little flock." to Ins Ills associates In
the Kingdom, nis Bride, to share with
Ilim Ills glory, honor and Immortali
ty. He asked not theu for the world,
knowing that the Father's time had
not then come. Hence we read that
ne ascended up on high and sat down
nt the right hand of the Divine Maj
esty, henceforth waiting for the time
when Ills enemies would be made His
footstool, and the Gentiles le given to
Him for an Inheritance; and Ho knew
thnt this time would not come until
first Ills Church had been developed.
At and shortly after Pentecost nil the
faithful of the nation of Israel. Israel
ites Indeed, were begotten of the Holy
Spirit that they might become mem
bers of spiritual Israel, the Bride class.
As there wus not u sufficiency of such
Jews, the Divine Plan, as previously
arranged, proceeded to call and test
such of the heathen as were feeling
ufter God and seeking after His right
eousness. The entire work has re
quired the intervening time, and now
at the close of the six great days of hu
man labor and sweat of face and sor
row and dying, the great seventh thou
sand year day is about to be ushered
hi. It is the period already appointed
of the Father for Messiah's reign of
righteousness, in which the Bride of
Christ will reign with him.
The End of the Matter.
My next question was, What will
be the end of this long reign of Igno
rance, superstition, sin and death?
The Bible's answer came quickly to
my mind: The Divine promise Is that
Messiah's Kingdom will be successful,
that It will bring In an abundance of
peace, that "to Him every knee shall
bow and every tongue shall confess."
Moreover, we are assured that this will
be a bowing of sincere loyalty and obe
dience, becauso the context says that
it shall be to the glory of God, and no
other kind of bowing and confessing
would glorify Ood. Then came tho
further assurance of the Bible to my
mind: St Teter's declaration, that
"Times of refreshing shall come from
the presence of tho Lord, and He shall
seud Jesus Christ, which before was
preached unto you, whom the heaveus
must retain until the times of restitu
tion of all things which God has spoken
by the mouth of all the holy rrophots."
-Acts 111. 19-21.
I also remembered the promise that
the Redeemer would yet see the frui
tion of the travail of Ills soul and be
satisfied. I remembered that assur
ance which Ho also gave, saying, "Ev
ery creature In heaven and In earth
and under tho earth heard I saying,
Praise, glory, honor, dominion nnd
might to Him that sitteth on the
Throne, and to the Lamb, forever." I
remembered also nts final testimony,
that eventually, There shall be no more
sighing, no more crying, no more dy
ing, because all "the former things" of
In and death will have passed away.
TAKE A VACATION
Mai Stop Work In Hard and
Soft Coal Fields.
GUARDS LEFT IN WORKINGS.
Prediction Made That Suspension in
Hard Coal Regions Will Not Last
More Than a Month Bituminous
Agreement Goes to Referendum.
Indianapolis, April l. No anthracite
or bituminous coal was taken from the
mines today by union miners as a re
sult of the suspension which went in
to effect at midnight last night, due
to wage troubles. More than 400,000
miners, about 150,000 in the anthracite
field and 250,000 in the bituminous,
will take a vacation which probably
w ill last only a few weeks.
Different from a strike, the miners
left pumpmen and others at work to
protect the mines from flooding.
Cleveland. April 1. While 400,000
anthracite and bituminous miners quit
work at midnight, when their present
wage agreement expired, the operators
and union officials took steps to make
as brief as possible the stoppage of
the coal production.
The 150,000 anthracite miners in
Pennsylvania stopped for an Indefinite
period, hut arrangements were com
pleted for a reopening of negotiations
to settle their wage dispute.
The operators' and miners' confer
ence will be held in Philadelphia on
April 10. A month's suspension In
the anthracite mines was thought
Tho bituminous miners, after an
eleven days' conference with the oper
ators here have secured an agreement
which will give them a slight Increase
in pay. As their agreement, however,
must still be ratified by the union's
policy committee and then by a refer
endum vote of the union, a suspension
in the bituminous mines began pend
ing the result of the final vote.
Reports to the heads of the United
Mine Workers of America Indicated
the bituminous wago agreement would
be accepted generally.

Mr. Cosson spoke on the sublet
"Hotel Laws In Iowa." He advised
the association as to what steps covld
be taken in improving the hotel laws
of the state. Among the Important
features of the subject discussed by
the attorney general was that of hotel
Inspection. Mr. Cosson declared that
the hotel Inspection laws were lax
and that the state had little power st
present to Inspect hotels. He urged
thnt the laws be amended to provide
for regular Inspection of hotels.
Tho Iowa Association of Travelers
Is conducting a campaign to secure
better hotel laws In the state. The
members will work to have a bill In
troduced In the next session of the

other equipment of hotels of the state.
The bill probably will be similar to
the Nebraska laws, which empower
the governor to appoint hotel Inspect
