has an idea which ho thinks is good;
ho tolls his neighbors about it and
thoy do not like it. This mako him
angry, and, seizing a club, ho at
tempts to mako them liko it. One
trouble about this rulo is that it
works both ways: when a man starts
out to compel his neighbors to think
as ho does, he generally finds them
willing to accept tho challenge and
they spend so much tirao in trying
to coerco .each other that they havo
no time left to bo of servlco to each
Tho other is tho Bible plan be
not overcome of evil, but over
come evil with good. And there is
no other way of overcoming evil. I
am not much of a farmer I get
more credit for my farming than I
deserve, and my little farm receives
moro advertising than it is entitled
to. But 1 am farmer enough to
know that if I cut down weeds thoy
will spring up again, and I know that
if I plant something thero which has
moro vitality than tho weeds I shall
not only got rid of tho constant cut
ting, but have the benefit of the crop
In order that thero might bo no
mistake about His plan of propagat
ing good, Christ went Into detail and
laid emphasis upon the value of ex
ample "so livo that others seeing
your good works may be constrained
to glorify your Father which is In
Heaven." There is ro human influ
ence so potent for good as that which
goes out from an upright life. A
sermon may bo answered;1 the argu
ments presented in a speech may be
disputed, but no one can answer a
Christian life It Is tho unanswerable
argument in favor of our religion.
It may be a slow process this
conversion of the world by the silent
influence of a noble example, but it
is the only sure one, and the doctrine
applies to nations as well as to In
dividuals. The. Gospel of tho Prince
of Peace gives uh the only hope that
tho world has and it Is an Increas
ing hope of tho substitution of rea
son for the arbitrament of force in
the settlement of international dis
putes. But Christ has given us a plat
form more fundamental than any po
litical narty has ever written. We
are interested in platforms; we at
tend conventions, sometimes travel
ing long distances; wo havo wordy
wars over the phraseology of various
planks, and then we wage earnest
campaigns to secure tho indorsement
of these platforms at the polls. But
the platform given to tho world by
the Nazareno is moro faT-reaching
and moro comprehensive than any
platform ever written by the conven
tion of any party in any country.
When He condensed into one com
mandment those of- the ten which re
late to man's duty toward his fellows
and enjoined upon us tho rule, "Thou
shalt love thy neighbor as thyself-'
He presented a plan for tho solution
of all the problems that now vex so
ciety or may hereafter arise. Other
remedies may palliate or postpone tho
day of settlement, but this is all
sufficient and tho reconciliation which
it effects is a permanent one.
If I were to attempt to apply this
thought to vaTious questions which
are at issue, I might be accused of
entering the domain of partisan poli
tics, but I may safely apply it to
two great problems. First, let us
consider the question of capital and
labor. This Is not a transient i3sue
or a local one. It engages the atten
tion of the people of all countries
and has appeared in every age. The
immediate need in this country Is
arbitration for neither side to the
controversy can be trusted ro aeai
with absolute justice, If allowed un
disputed control; but arbitration,
like a court, is a last resort.
It would be better if the re
lorinnB rmtween employer and em
ploy were such as to mako arbitra
tion unnecessary. Just In proportion
as mon recognize thjlr kinship to
each other and deal with oach other
in tho spirit of brotherhood will
friendship and harmony bo secured.
Both employer and omployo need to
cultivate tho spirit which follows
from obedienco to tho great com
mandment. Tho second problem to which I
would apply this platform of poaco
Is that which relates to tho accumu
lation of wealth. Wo can not much
longer, delay consideration of tho
ethics of monoy-making. That many
of tho enormous fortunes which have
been accumulated in tho last quarter
of a century aro now held by mon
who have given to society no ade
quate servlco In return for tho mon
ey secured is now generally recog
nized. Whilo legislation can and
should protect the public from preda
tory wealth, a more effective remedy
will bo found in tho cultivation of a
public opinion which will substitute
a "higher Ideal than tho one which
tolerates tho enjoyment of unearned
gains. No man who really knows
what brotherly love is will dcslro to
take advantage of his neighbor, and
the conscience when not scared .will
admonish against injustice. My faith
in the future rests upon tho belief
that Christ's teachings aro being
more studied today than over before
and that with this larger study will
come an application of those teach
ings to the everyday life of the
world. In former times men read
that Christ came to bring life and
immortality to light and placed tho
emphasis upon immortality; now
they are studying Christ's relation to
human life, In former years many
thought to prepare themselves for
future bliss by a life of seclusion
here; now thoy are learning that they
can not follow in tho footsteps of tho
Master unless they go about doing
good. Christ declared that Ho came
that wo might have life and havo it
moro abundantly. Tho world Is
learning that Christ came not to nar
row life, but to enlarge it to fill
it with purpose, earnestness and hap
piness. But this Prince of Pence promises
not only peace, but strength. Some
have thought His teachings fit only
for tho weak and the timid and un-
suited to men of vigor, energy and
ambition. Nothing could be farther
from the truth. Only the man of
faith can bo courageous. Confident
that he fights on tho sido of Jehovah,
he doubts not tho success of his
cause. What matters it whether ho
shares In the shouts of triumph? Tf
every word spoken in behalf of truth
has its lnfluenco and overy deed dono
for tho right weighs In the final ac
count, it Is 'immaterial to tho Chris
tian whether his eyes behold victory
or whether he dies in tho midst of
