For Sunday Afternoon. JOHN x, 27.—" My sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they follow me." [Newspaper Article] — Watchman — 1 March 1902
For Sunday; Afternoon. Jonis* x, 27.—il My sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they follow me." This declaration was, made in answer to a question. The Jews came round about Jesus and. said unto Him—"How long dost thou hold us in suspense? IS thou art the Cliri6t tell us plainly." They saw the Master in the Temple courts, walking up and down, quietly, observantly; they knew that He was not.an ordinary man, they were half porsuaded that, He might bo tlie Messiah Himself, though He certainly did not answer to all their Messianic hopes. Still, who c^n tell!—they say among them selves; Beneath those mild benignant eyes there may burn a flame of fire. Great military I eaders have sometimes had this same look of meekness and gentleness. • It may be that even He will presently sound the trumpet of revolt against tlie hateful power of Home; and then, though we are not particularly impressed by some aspects of His teacliing, though it is painfully mystical and other-world, thougli it i...
A Golden Rule City. [Newspaper Article] — Watchman — 1 March 1902
A Golden Rule City. J Toledo, in Ohio, is held to have gained world repute as ".A Golden Rule City." It has a " Golden Rule" Mayor and a Municipal " Golden Rule " committee, in which are in cluded orthodox and liberal clergymen and laymen, Roman Catholics, Jews, Theosopliists, Christian Scientists, Labour Union men—in fact, "all who wish to join hands to promote the highest interests of the community." The idea was the result of a " golden rule " mass meeting. In connection with the above novel idea, it may bo stated that, in 1901, there was a re markable " Golden Rule" Revival in New York, City, its moving principles being "the sudden realization by tne American public that the fundamental law of evolution is not * the struggle for life/ as supposed, but * the strug gle for the lives of others/" as suggested powerfully in Professor Drummond's " Ascent of Man "—the new truth this accepted was termed " Nature's Golden Rule." The first practical step in the new order of things was the...

Isolation. [Newspaper Article] — Watchman — 1 March 1902
Isolation. In essays by Mark Patterson, Vol. 2, p. 3, we read—(i The shout of battle may be raised the loudest about some harmless or insignificant quibble; but toe may learn from it in which direction the danger is felt to lie. When public opinion is in a sore and irritable stated a veiy remote allusion wi.l rack all its nerves." Precisely so! Differences of opinion originate in differences of race, and no wise man would tbink of arguing them. Also in training and temperament; both these lie beyond the reach of argument. Must a man, then, refrain from any plain expression of opinion, because he might offend those whom'lie cannot hope to con vince? One penalty a man mnst pay if he speaks plainly, and that is, he is either misun derstood or misinterpreted. . Certain events have happened within the past few years which may, or may not, be classed as "harmless or insignificant quibbles." Anyhow all staunch Protestants have no hesitation as to how they class them, and determining the di...

The Choir Gallery. Yet another violinist lias appeared in the music firmament; following hard npon Kubelik is another who has recently appeared in London, Jaroslav Kocian, a native of Bohemia, and now eighteen years of age. Ho is stated to have begun the violin at three and a half years, and remained under the tuition of his father until, when he was twelve, lie entered the Con serratorium at Prague where he had the benefit of tuition from the same master that Joliann Kubelik studied under, and in addition had a good master for composition, Anton Dvorak. Here ho remained until last July, and lias since been most successful in his concert tours. At his concerts in St. James' Hall, London, his renderings were noteworthy for their depth of feeling. He has evidently the artistic soul as well as the technical ability, and both of these are necessary if ho is to speak to the souls of men. In this musically remote part of the world the names of Joachim, Ysayo, Sarasate are known by repute ...
The Protestant Watchtower. [Newspaper Article] — Watchman — 1 March 1902
The Protestant Watchtower. Slimness— &nbsp; We use the word in the sense which the &nbsp; South African War has taught us to under- stand the expression. Amongst the Boers the &nbsp; word means craftiness as shown in the cunning designing man. That condition of things &nbsp; which is described by the words, " The voice is Jacob's, but the hand is Esau." * # # Romish Slimness— Our- troops in the Transvaal and Orange Free State have to cope with the slimness of tlie Boers. But in our State and Common wealth politically and religiously we have to reckon with the slimness of the Roman Catholic party, and it would be well for all Protestants to bo alive to the position, and weigh and balance all statements made by the leaders of Roman Catholicism not so much in the exact phraseology which is used as in actual positions which are intended. For instance in the speeches as reported in the Telegraph of Monday, the 3rd inst., Cardinal Moran and his coadjutor, A...

Notes on Current Events. [Newspaper Article] — Watchman — 1 March 1902
Notes on Current Events. (By Anti-Boer The existence of such an organization as the Protestant Defence Association emphasises the fact that at last Protestants have realised that they have being living in a fool's paradise, Lulled by the false confidence born of their known majority at the polls, they had for the time forgotten that the ever aggrossive and uncompromising Church of Rome never sleeps. The composition of the State and Federal Parliaments are monuments of the matchless organization which has enabled a disloyal minority to triumph over the majority, and the ablest statesman in Australia is obliged to play second fiddle to a doubtful Protestant and the nominee of the R.C. party, Mr. Barton. Nominally we have a Protestant at the head of the State Government; practically he is only a puppet in the hands of the Crick* O'Sullivan clique who run the business. That such is the case no better evidence is needed than the fact that since their advent to power &nbsp; R.C.'s...
