" POWERFUL STATEMENT BY THE MINISTER OF EDUCATION." (To the Editor of the WATCHMAN.) [Newspaper Article] — Watchman — 30 August 1902

" POWERFUL STATEMENT BY THE MINISTER OF EDUCATION." (To the Editor of the Watchman.) Sir,—In your issue of the 23rd instant, under the above heading, you state that the Minister, inter alia, says: " The religious teaching was placed on the same footing as geography, grammar, or any other sitbjecU (The italics axe mine.) . . .

_ L.O.L. No. 28. The regular monthly meeting of the above was held in the Adamstown Methodist Church, on Friday, 22nd August, Bro. Tyson, W.M., in the chair. There was a large attendance of > members, though it is probable many more would have been present but for the inclemency of the weather.

Six others were proposed for next meeting. The meeting then adjourned to allow the members to entertain the sisters of the Orange lily No. 308, Bro.

Romanism and the Bible. NO. I—FRANCE. [Newspaper Article] — Watchman — 30 August 1902

Romanism and,the Bible. I—FBANCE. By Key. Henby Gadifobd. To what extent does Borne authorise tho reading of the Bible among her people ? Does she do so in the same sense as the Protestant ; Church ? The British and Foreign Bible Society is scattering the written Word all over the world. Her agents, colporteurs and friends have their work especially in E. C. countries. Let us first consider the passage of the Bible in Prance. It is fighting its way against great odds. Its path is not a smooth one. It has its mountains to cut through and its streams to ford. It meets with many thorns of opposition. The Reform movement in France is, however, making its path smoother. 3L Bourier, a Bible priest, is trying to reform the Boman Church from within by the use of the Bible. He declares that, in two years, 125 priests have given up their positions in the Church. They are reading the Bible for themselves. M. Bourier is most sanguine, and says, " Why may we not hope for a reformation emerging f...

Correspondence. [We do not hold ourselves responsible for the opinions expressed by our correspondents.] WOMAN ENFRANCHISED. (TO THE EDITOR OF "THE WATCHMAN.") [Newspaper Article] — Watchman — 30 August 1902

Correspondence. (_ We do not hold ourselves responsible for opinions expressed by our correspondents.] WOMAN ENFRANCHISED. (to the editor of " The Watchjian.") Sir,—The seeming success and advance of Popery in all Protestant communities is due to the fact that her adherents are units fn the greatest and craftiest political organization in the world. The Papal foundations rest on the instability, weakness, and folly of humanity, and her progress is solely due to a correct calculation of the forces of human folly and corruption. In a time of distress we have enfranchised our women at a cost, perhaps, of little less than £20,000—to do what ? Is it to arm our adversary with a weapon to aid it iij its struggle for State assistance in its educational programme. Says M"iVq Golding, as reported —"Let her be non-sectarian, regardless of sect or sex, but Christian in the true sense—the sense-of love and. charity.. If this altruistic spirit animates her, the State and the nation will welcome h...

News of the Churches. [Newspaper Article] — Watchman — 30 August 1902

j News of tlie Churches. The folio-wing extract from a letter from a mission -worker among the aborigines at Cumeroogunga -will, we feel sure, be read with interest by our subscribers:—"A revival has come to Cumeroogunga. The Rev. George Cole, of Melbourne, came out with the Bevs. | Clements and Hollands and some laymen and neld three services last Thursday, the 14 th August, at 11, 3, and 3.30 o'clock. The morning service was a preparation for the afternoon, the 2 o'clock being for Christians. Towards the close of the 3.30 meeting the power of God came on the people, and 23 of them at the close of the service made a definite decision, amongst them being some of the hardest on the station. There has been a wonderful spirit of prayer on the place for months past, and we have been looking for something good, but we have got more than we asked for.

ALVA. (To the Editor of the "WATCHMAN.) [Newspaper Article] — Watchman — 30 August 1902

ALVA. (To tlia Editor of the "Watchman.) Sir,—In your issue of 9th inst., under the heading " Stories of tlie Past," specially referring to Huguenot Struggles for Religious Freedom, you gave an outline of the deeds and character of a highly honoured General • of Philip, King of Spain—a Roman Catholic General, of a Roman Catholic King, and a Roman Catholic country. The name and character were not now to me, having many years ago read Motley's " Rise of the Dutch Republic," a work which you recommend to i your readers, through which the name of the ! said General shines out with a lurid glare that reflects much of the demoniacal through the distorted figure of a bastard humanity. The name invariably spells horror, brutality, out\x=req-\ rage—burn, burn j stab, stab j slash, slash; kill, kill; leave no man, woman, nor child ; alive. It means hundreds of men and women tied back to back and drowned like dogs, or hung up by the feet and left to frost, ■starvation, and death. The name spel...

JHE CARE OF THE HAUL "My hair is grey, but not with years;" so says Byron, and how applicable this is to many of us who are distressed by personal and business worries. Still, no trouble ever yet ob taiued for which seine relief has not been found. The hair is one of Nature's adornments and •should not be neglected. Proper attention should bo given to its preservation, just as you. find it necessary to attend to any physical ailment. CAPILLA HAIR TONIC is the result of very careful study and the Proprietor's object is to give to the public something of a medicinol^&ture rather than the useless perfume which constitute many so\x=req-\ called hair restorers.

The Mount of Tears, or Kembla Disaster. [Newspaper Article] — Watchman — 30 August 1902

The Mount of Tears, or Kembla Disaster. (By EEY. P. J. STEPHEN.) " When Thy judgments are in the earthy the inhabitants of the world irill leant righteousness" Isa. 26, 9. The other day Australia -was startled and horrified by the news of a terrible disaster which sent no fewer than 97 men into eternity. The Mount Kembla coal-mine is said to be one of the safest in Australia, and certainly one of the best ventilated; yet, such is the danger of the miner's calling, that the forces of destruction, set in motion, probably by a fall of earth, tore out the side of the mountain and spread ruin and dismay far and wide. 250 men were shut up in the terrible underground prison, miles away from an outlet, surrounded by deadly gases, and in total darkness. No wonder such a disaster has sent a thrill of pity across Australia. It is the worst of the kind that has yet happened in these lands, despite all the humane precautions' of the Legislature against accidents, and of scientific management. I ...

THE Watchman CIRCULATION 13,500. SATURDAY, AUGUST 30, 1902. PRIESTS AND THEIR RATES. [Newspaper Article] — Watchman — 30 August 1902

CIRCULATION 13,500. SATURDAY, AUGUST 30, 1902. | 1 PBIESTS AND THEffi KATES. A A question which has remained legally undecided for many years, and of which full ad V'i vantage has been taken by Roman Catholic priests throughout the country, has at length been settled by the Pull Court sitting in Sydney. Some time ago the Municipality of Iis more applied to the Right Rev. Jeremiah Joseph Doyle, better known as Bishop Doyle, for the payment of rates due upon the house he occupied. This claim he refused to recognise, asserting that the presbytery, or priesf s house, was just as necessaiy for public and charitable purpooes as was the church itself. The Lismore Borough Council then applied to the District Court for an order to compel payment^ but Judgo Heydon, before whom the suit cante, upheld the Bishop in his refusal. Against this verdict the Municipality appealed to the Full Court, consisting of the Acting\x=req-\ Chief Justice, Mr. Justice Simpson and Mr. Justioo Pring, all of whom ...
