Correspondence. [7Fi? do not hold ourselves respomille for the• opinions expressed ly our Correspondents."] POWERFUL STATEMENTS, ETC. (To THE EDITOR OF THE WATCHMAN.) Kir,—There aro other thing's powerful, as well as statements, one of which is " Influenza." I liavo "been wrestling with this powerful antagonist for the pa6t fortnight, and I must confess it has lind the best of me, and so I was kept from following up my contention regarding these powerful statements, etc. To be , effective there must be more than words, however powerful. A proclamation is needed, i warning all ecclesiastical agitators to take " hands oil" the Education Department of this State and, also, that when all sectarian establishments aro thrown open to regular government inspection, whatever readjustment may become necessary to make matters work harmoniously, shall bo effected. Something of this nature would bo far bettor than words. Now for my original contention, namely, " That religious teacliing was plac...

Music Hath Charms, &c. [Newspaper Article] — Watchman — 13 September 1902
Music Hatli Cliamis, &lt;tc. "If music "be the food of love, play on and give me excess of it," so says ohakespeare, and in the 2flth century music and musical instrument vendors are doing tlieir best to live up to the "bard's maxim from a commercial point of view. This reminds us that Mr. Terriell, the piano importer, lias a magnificent assortment of new and second-hand pianos on exhibition just now, and the collection has been further enhanced by a fresh shipment of new Upside Grands, a brand of piano becoming rapidly prominent in the drawing rooms of PottsPoint.

" Brown Holland." [Newspaper Article] — Watchman — 13 September 1902
" Brown Holland." ^Specially Written for Tun Watchmax."! 13y K.M.H. It is wonderful, when uno has time to dwell onBUch matters how, sometimes, the merest circumstance will make or mar the existence of An individual, and, without a smile or tear of gratitude or regret from tbe said individual, will pass forever into obscurity, as the acoru has passed when one stands and gazes into the .giant branches of the oak. Did Bachel for one moment dream that brown holLind was the cause of her' future happiness? No. Did anybody else? No, except Aunt Tabitha and I, who am the brown holland in question. I was the end of the i-oll, and just measured ten yards and one eighth at tue particular time of which I speak, wiien I heard the affable individual, on my side of the counter, remark to an elderly lady oa the other, " Brown holland, Madam ?

Introduction to the Study of Natural Law. (CONTINUED FROM LAST ISSUE.) [Newspaper Article] — Watchman — 13 September 1902
Introduction to the Study of Natural Law. (COXTIXUED FROM LAST ISSUE.) 8. (theater than the Law.—If the law, were permitted to work without interference there can be no doubt that it would ultimately reach this result. But there is something higher and greater than the law, something that can subdue . man's will, bring it into harmony with the Supreme Will, and so i enable him to obey the law "more perfectly. This something is called faith. Of Abraham it is recorded that " he was justified (i.e., made perfect) by faith." Faith is therefore capable I of doing what the law cannot do, for it can ! restore man to the original perfection which he had in Adam before he fell. "What, then, , is faith? It is belief based, upon knowledge of ! the will and the power of God, and of His goodness and love to man. This knowledge can be obtained from the record of God's deal-; j ings with man from the creation onwards, which contains all that God has revealed to man concerning Himself. In this sacr...

What Christian Endeavour Is Doing. CONVENTION NOTES CONTINUED. [Newspaper Article] — Watchman — 13 September 1902
What Christian Endeavour Is Doing. CONVENTION NOTES CONTINUED. (Specially written for the Watchman. ) Monday afternoon, 1st September, saw the Y. M. 0. A. Hall in festive array, ready for the Bible reading and conferences which were to be held there. Punctually at half-past two Bev. William Shaw, Australasian President, took the chair, and opened the session by giving out, "Take time to be Holy." His Bible reading upon " The Praying Christ," as seen in St. Luke's Gospel, was a treat, and; everybody felt sorry when the time came for him to close. A cordial reception awaited Hev. Dr. Dill\x=req-\ Macky, who was the chairman for the afternoon conferences. The papers upon " Our duties as officers and Committees" were of a very helpful character. For originality of thought ana beauty of expression, that by Miss Grace Short, of Newcastle, stands easily first. Unfortunately she was suffering from a sore throat, which prevented her voice from reaching all parts of the halL The paper by Mrs....

Lecture at Rockdale on Church History, [Newspaper Article] — Watchman — 20 September 1902
Lecture at Kockdale on Church History, By the Rev. E. M. Walkee, Diocese of Newcastle. Having received ail intimation of the above we went to Rockdale onVWednesday, Sept. 1.0, We were given to understand tliat tlie lecture was to begin at 7.45, but it was fully 8.20 before the lantern could be persuaded to work. So, therefore, we had time to look around and make enquiries. The Church was lit up when we arrived. One glance at the Communion , table, laden with ilowers, told us the kind of doctrine that was being taught at St. John's. This was emphasized on learning that "Hymns Ancient and Modern "* (Popery's Poetical Pioneer), was the hymn-book in use, and in seeing the clergyman Hitting about, clothed in cassock, like a Komish'priest.« It would be no want of charity to say that the lantern exhibition was a miserable failure, and that the lecture itself was decidedly churchy. *\Ve heard a great deal of the church and she, which brought to mind the poem by Martin Tapper: — *' Tke Churc...
The Sydney Police Force Utterly Demoralised. [Newspaper Article] — Watchman — 20 September 1902
The Sydney Police Force Utterly Demoralised. To characterise the police force of Sydney as utterly demoralised may astonish a few who Are living in peaceful itpiorance of the real state of affairs, but very many will regard it as a, mild statement of what they have for a long time well known. That it is no exaggera-. tion to sfiy so, will be the aim of this «nd following articles. Unless the community awakens to the dangers, from this cause, that are steadily increasing, and demand immediate redress, things will continue to be •allowed to drift, for it is clear that the Government is as apathetic as the police force is demoralised. In the opinion of the Premier and many Members of Parliament the Inspec\x=req-\ tor-Gencral of police is a capable officer, and they lose no opportunity of singing his praises, the reasons for which are very well known. He may. be a capable officer, but the condition of the force which ho controls argues strongly to the contraiy. Some excuse for him, howe...
