of Ideal World-Wide
TORONTO. Ont.. Oct. Ecumenical
Methodism, in the sense of world-wide
Methodism as one of the most potent and
available forces towards attainment of
Ideal of world-wide brotherhood, was dis
cussed from world-wide points ot view
by delegates to the fourth Ecumenical
Methodist conference, which continued
itg sessions here today. Japan, Australia.
England and the south, both white ami
black. were represented anion the
bishops and ministers who spoke on that
As the rules of the conference preclude
a discussion of points of doctrine, disci
pline and Individual types of church gov
ernment, the addresses were character
ised by practical suggestions for what
was termed "new efficiency" In expedit
ing the truer social and commercial co
operation. The necessity for work along
that line had been pointed out by the
Rev. Henry Halgh of Newcastle-on-Tyne.
England, In his Inaugural sermon yes
terday. The convention began its second da's
work mlth nearly 600 delegates and about
twice as many other ministers and lay
men present. The morning session, at
which Rev. Halgh. who is president of
the Wesleyan conference, presided, dis
cussed particularly "Methodism In the
United States, Canada and Japan." The
speakers on the program were H. K. Car
roll, Nsw York City, secretary of the
western section of the present confer
ence; Bishop J. C. Kllgo, Durham, N. C. :.
Rev. Howard Sprague of the Methodist
church of Canada and Rev. S. Ogata uf
the Japanese Methodist church.
Canada as a world factor has been
touched upon' by several speakers. Mr.
Halgh referred to the "potential great
ness" of the dominion "of our Canada,
may I say, emphasising the word our."
A chorus loudly reeponded "yes."
"In view of the development and more
marvelous possibilities of Canada, fol
lowing as It does the wonderful growth
of the United States," continued Mr.
Halgh. "John Bull ba almost forgotten
how to brag. Probably we envy you
many things, both of you nations here
on the American continent. We envy you
The statement by Bishop E. E. Hoss of
Nashville, Tenn.. that "we of the United
States do not and did not Intend. to an
nex you," evoked hearty laughter.
Prize fighting was denounced by Sir
Robert W. Parkes of London, who said
In that connection-
"If Free churches of England could
with such absolute ease bring forth pres
sure to bear on the government as to
compel the stopping of a brutal prize
fight in London, notwithstanding the ef
forts of society people to the contrary,
what could not Methodist and Free
churches accomplish if federated through
out the world?"

ISTHMUS IS NOW PEACEFUL

Prosperity and the Canal la Being
Ballt Instead of Being De.
NEW YORK, Oct. . Theodore Roose
velt baa an article on "How the United
States acquired the right to dig the
Panama, canal," In the current number
of the OuUook. Mr. Roosevelt discusses
statements which have been made from
time to Urn that he acted in an uncon
stitutional manner and usurped authority
In connection with the Panama project,
and he upholds the regularity of tbe
. Mr. Roosevelt says that bis messages to
congress set forth in full and In detail
very essential fact connected with the
various phases of the acquisition of the
Panama canal. He adds:
"The simple tact was that when the
Interest of the American people Im
peratively, demanded that a certain act
should be dona and I bad the power to
do it. I did it, unless It was specifically
prohibited by law instead of refusing
to do It unless I could find some provi
sion of law which rendered it Imperative
that I should do It. In other words, I
gave the benefit of the doubt to the
people of tbe United States and not to
any group of bandits, foreign or domes
tic, whose Interests happened to be
adverse to those of the people of the
Leiion of Hlatory,
"In my judgment, history had taught
the lesson that the president has very
great powers if he chooses to air those
powers; but that. If he is a timid or1
selfish man. afraid of responsibility and
afraid of risks, h 'ran, of course, manu
facture ingenious excuses for failure to
exercise them. At. a great crisis in
American history Mr. Buchamq. had
shown himself to belong to the latter
type of president; Mr. Lincoln had repre
sented the other type the type which
gave the people the benefit of the doubt,
which was not afraid to take responsi
bility, which used In large fashion for
the good of the people the great powers
of a great office.
"la October Ad .November, 1903." svehts
occurred on tbe isthmus of Panama
which enabled me, and which made It
my highest duty to the people of the
United States, to carry out the pro
visions of the law of congress. I did
carry them out and the canal Is now
being built because of what I thus did.
Did !t Evuile Responsibility.
"It is also true, that If I bad wished
to shirk my responsibility. If I had
been afraid of doing my duty I could
have pursued a course which would have
been technically defensible, which would
have prevented criticism of the kind that
has been made and would have left the
United States no nearer bulldlrrg the
canal at this moment than It had been
for the preceding half century. If I
had observed a Judicial inactivity about
what was going on at the Isthmus, if I
had let things take their course and had
then submitted an elaborate report
thereon to congress, I would have
furnished the opportunity for much
masterly debate in oougress which would
now be going on, and the canal would
still he fifty years In the future.
"The Interests of the American people
demanded tnat I should act Just exactly
as I did act; and I would have taken the
action I actually did take even though
I had been certain that to do so meant
my prompt retirement from public life
st the next election; for the only thing
which makes it worth while to hold a
big office Is taking advantage of the
opportunities the office offers to do some
big thing that ought to be done and Is
Opposition of Colombia,
Concerning the opposition of Colombia,
Mr. Roosevelt says:
'I felt very strongly that the position
that the one time Secretary of Rtate
Cass had taken nearly fifty years be
fore, was the proper position and that
the United States would be derelict In
its duty iflt permitted Colombia to pre
vent the rTmdlng of the Panama canal.
I was prepared, If necessary, to submit
to congre.ii a recommendation that we

TAFT'S TALKS IN NEBRASKA
Voters Favorably Impressed by
LINE ON PARTY SENTIMENT
Intnrgrucr Not as Kxtenslre as In

Are Divided as to
That President Taft crested a favorable
impression throughout his Journey across
Nebraska Is the conclusion of a corre
spondent of the Chicago Tribune wTio Is
following- In the wake of the presidential
party anf gathering the drift on public
sentiment an affected by the president's
visit and speeches. Interviews with per
sons and townspeople in the communi
ties where the president stopped showed
"a preponderance of favorable comment
upon Mr. Taft and his administration."
Continuing, the correspondent says:
Undeniably there Is a great deal of
republican Insurgency In Nebraska, but
It Is not nearly so prevalent as In Kan
sas and Iowa. Governor Aldrlch, a pro
gressive -republlcsn.V has ' com out for
La Follette, and there Is consluerable
La Toilette Sentiment In Llnooln, where
an organisation working in the Interest
of the Wisconsin senator ha been es
tablished. In this district also Congress
man Norrls, one of the national leaders
of the progressives, Is forming a Ua
The president talked tariff and reci
procity in his two principal speeches of
the day at Lincoln and here, and he
could not have selected any Issues of hln
administration more interesting to the
people of this Mate.
As In Iowa and Kansas, the reception
given the chief magistrate was wholly
nonpartisan, the pleasure In honoring
the man and his office being apparent
among democrats as well as republicans,
Insurgents as well as, standpatters.
Taft Changes Many Opinions.
It is difficult to determine accurately
the political effect of the presidents
visit. But the Interviewer today has been
Impressed particularly by the number of
persons who hae testified to a change
of opinion as a result of healing Mr. Taft
present his tide of the case.
In Nebraska, ag elsewhere, the majority
of the business men say they approve of
the Taft administration. But the hostil
ity of the farmers to the president's poli
cies, particularly reciprocity. Is notice
able here, although apparently not y
strung as In other Insurgent states
In that part of the state through which
the president pastd there Is also a pre
valent belief that he, ought to have signed
the 'wool and cotton hills of the lat
setln. This sentlme.nt mas reflected In
v "'e vote of Senator Brown and Congress-
men Norrls and Sloan for the democratic
wool bill. Congressman Klnkald. from
I he w ool growing northwest part of thfc
state, voted against the democratic bill,
but later for the l.a Follette-l'nderwood

wool bill over the president's veto.
