God's Love, God's Rule. [Newspaper Article] — Watchman — 15 March 1902

God's Love, God's Rule. By A. H. WILLISON. Ye guiding /tars of heav'nly worth Your brilliant course pursue, And though ye saw old Nature's birth Nought else we knew of you. Yet though man's knowledge may be weak. And all his efforts crude, His prayer transcends your highest wake And grasps God's love, God a rule. Mysterious Love' though veiled in rule And systems deep i but To man it reaches warm and full In robes of sweet good-will. For pea.1© on earth our Lord brought down, And though wayfaring still Man can obtain the fairest crown, And feel God's love, God's rule. The earth and all that therein is May hide their secret force, Inquiring' luiuds may search for cause, But fail to find their birth. Ah: joyful fact; that heart-sick souls For bulin need uot a school, But all way come, both sage and fool, And learn God's love, God's rule. Lo! when the heav'ns and earth are oue, And kuowledge yields her key, "When by God's voice " the kingdom's 00016,' And wyst'ries burst their seal,— T...

A Word of Advice to Aldermen. [Newspaper Article] — Watchman — 15 March 1902

A Word of Advice to Aldermen. Protestant Aldermen concerned in the election to the vacant seat on tlie Water and Sewerage Board had better, take care lest the seat he lost to Protestants through the multiplicity of candidates. Could lot voters (Aldermen) arrange to choose the strongest candidate and vote solidly, letting personal feelings of friend ship and minor considerations go by the Board rather than, jeopardize the position. Should this advice not be taken we have reason to helieve there will be reason for regret after ward ! , "Old clo'" Service ssotlucls somewhat liniisudf and many put in an appearance at St. Luke's 'Church, Sussex-street (city), the present centre !of the Church Army work.

Correspondence. To the Editor of the "Watchman." SAINT PATRICKS DAY. [Newspaper Article] — Watchman — 15 March 1902

Correspondence. To the Editor of the "Watchman." SAINT PATRICKS DAY. Sir,—Amongst all tho other numerous pro-1 tests against this Sectarian " Public Holiday," I have not noticed one from the Baptist body. Now, sir, if taxpayers of whom I am one have to pay Government servants a day's pay for nothing, in common fairness X ask you as an elector for a day to ho set apart for the very first Saint in the calender, St. John the Baptist, the forerunner of Clirist. In fair play we should similarlj' honor St. Paul (the great Apostle of the Gentiles), St. Augustine (the celebrated converter of tho early English pagans to Christianity), also John Knox and John "Wesley—"and what shall I more say ? for the time would fail me to tell of Gideon, and of Barak, and of Sauison, and of Jepthae, of David also, and of Samuel, and of the Prophets." Each elector might get a solemn pledge from his M.L.A. before next election, to pro test in Parliament against Sectarian holidays, otherwise State aid to the ...

Correspondence. (We do not hold ourselves responsible for the views our correspondents.) THE ZIONIST MOVEMENT. To the Editor of "The Watchman." .Dear sir.—In-your issue-of the first' instant,' in a short article, headed, " A Dream of relaiming Zion." attention was drawn to the Zionist movement, ana the success attendant on the fifth congress held at Basle, Switzer land, on the 26th December, 1901. The writer (Ben-Hur), after '.briefly reviewing the scheme of founding a Jewish state in Palestine, concludes with the following remarks: "At present it seems like a vision such as has been cherished for long ages, with the splendour and glory of dream, but with little chance of realization." I think this is a very pessimistic view tjJ takd of a movement which has created such a world-wide interest (and has been initiated in Sydney, for at a meeting held in the synagogue schoolroom, Castlereagh-street, ona recent Sun day afternoon a branch of the Zionist League was formed.)

OUKSELYES. The Watchman lias been before the public for seven weeks/and our.friends must now be in a position to form some opinion as to tlic value of our work. In our first number we gave a resume of our intended line of action based on the various suggestions which were made from time to time by those interested in the idea of providing a Protestant newspaper for Australia. We have endeavoured faith fully to carry out these suggestions so as to make the Watchman, whnt we liopo it will be, a great power for good in our Australian Commonwealth. To produce this result means of course, an immeuse amount of hard work, which must of necessity fall on a very few shoulders. Oun Staff is small in numbers, because it is of the utmost importance tliat we should keep our expendi ture down to the lowest possible limit. But wo have been fortunate in securiug the services of gentlemen, who, besides being experts in their various departments, are also staunch Protes tants, imbued with the princip...
