Business Notices. Messrs. John* Chopley & Sons. Messrs. John Cropley and Sons, 800 George street, hold one of the largest and most varied stocks of boots, shoes, etc., in the city. Our readers will do well to inspect these goods, and will consult their own interests by doing so. The quality and price are both right. Messiis. "Wood axd Co.

The Magna Charta of Protestantism. BY REV. P. J. STEPHEN.' " In vain they do worship tlie teacliing for doctrines the commandments of men."— Mat. xv. 37. "And many other signs truly did Jesus. . . which'are not written in thiB book; hnt these are written that ye might believe that Jesus is the Christ; the Son of God; and that believing ye might have life through His name."—John xx. 30, 31. | . During the past few years great activity lias j been observed in Soman propagandism. Home is covering this continent witli her schools' and quietly laying-.her hand on the sources of power. Her vigilance has -been unremitting, ! her labour untiring, and, I must add,' the | generosity of her people has often put Pro testants to shame. The fact is, whether we like it or not, wo are entering upon an era of conflict, forced upon us by the aggressions of Rome. The battle of the Reformation will have to be fought over again in the 20tli century. There is an erastian spirit abroad which does not want...

The Protestant Watchtower. The Coronation Oath— Mbliioubne, Sunday.—An interesting dis cursion on the British accession oath took place at the Methodist Conference yesterday morn ing. The following motion was finally earned! —" That, with every feeling of Christian good will towards our Roman Catholic fellow subjects, this conference is convinced that the King's Protestant declaration, which lias been in use for 200 years, cannot be repealed or altered without endangering the Protestant succession to the Throne, and that the surren der of any part of the King's accession oath will be a step towards tlie surrender of national Protestantism, which is tlie safeguard and glory of the British Empire." An amendment modifying the terms of the resolution was negatived. « * * * Roman Catholics and the Throne— [From the " Aberdeen Free Press."] To the Editor of the "Free Press."

THE Watchman [?] [?] SATURDAY, MARCH 15, 1[?]02. "WHAT'S IN A NAME?" [Newspaper Article] — Watchman — 15 March 1902

SATURDAY, MARCH 15, 1102. "WHAT'S IN A NAME?" The priests of the Roman Catholic Church in   Australia must be blamed if there is some sus   picion abroad regarding their ultimate aims and objects. For several years past there have been efforts on their part to hide their identity under a cognomen "which is extremely mislead   ing, and to "which we humbly believe they have no possible right. The practice we refer to is to call themselves priests of The Catholic Church. "We wish to remind them, however, of the fact that the word " Catholic" possesses a general and not a specific meaning, and is used in the Book of Common Prayer, by the Anglican Church, in this general session, "We do not know, nor very much care, what priority of claim there may be to the title of "Catholic Church," but we do know that since the second ceutury of the Christian era, when the Roman Catholic Church was founded, it has always been known throughout the world by this s...

A Dream of Reclaiming Palestine. [Newspaper Article] — Watchman — 22 March 1902

A Dream of Reclaiming Palestine. ; The writer under the above heading in a late issue of the 4* Watchman," seems tome to have scanty knowledge of the Jewish aspect in the world, and of their renaissance in the present times. The article is somewhat con fusing aud puzzling, Jewish restoration, the writer concludes, "seems like a vision, such as has been cherished for long ages, with the splendour and gloiy of a dream, but with little chance of realisation." Then all the inspired prophets of the old dispensation and the Apostles of the new, ^vere but dreamers when tliey declared that God would gather his ancient people from all the nations whither He hath scattered them (Deut. 30-4); and St. Paul tells us their return will be " life from the dead." Now, as sure as their dispersion lias been literally accomplished, so surely shall their literal restoration and ultimate conversion to Christianity be »a literal reality in God'B appointed way and time. There are still some i spiritualiser...

The Choir Gallery [Newspaper Article] — Watchman — 22 March 1902

The Choir Gallery A correspondent under the now de plume of "Orpheus" writes: "It seems to me that much interest is often excited by varying the usual weekly article with a controversy on some subject which would be both interesting and profitable. I think that if a discussion were started on the relative value of boys and women's voices for choir singing, i,e.f whether a choir of men and women, or men and boys gives a better result. It would arouse much interest. I know many choirmasters who de bate this question keenly. The question was mooted some years ago in one of the daily papers, and was discussed with a good deal of energy." We tliank our correspondent for his sugges tion, wliich, if it bears fruit, should add con siderable interest to this column. Supporters of the male voice system point to the famous choirs at St. Paul's, Westminster Abbey, Magdalen College, Oxford or St. Michael's, Tenbury. Then we must remember the ex ceptional advantages these choirs possess. The pick...

Eor Sunday Afternoon. THE KICH FOOL. " Thou fool, thin night thy soul shall be required of thee."—Lukk xii. 20. The text introduces us to the death scene of a rich farmer. It is night, and all is quiet within and without the house. The wearied laboured of the harvest field are fast asleep within thoir cottages, and all the inmates of the farmer's house have also retired for the night The lights are down and the doors are locked.- I On fl soft bed lies the farmer himself, but he | is restless and cannot sleep, "When one's mind is troubled, who can? You roll wearily frwu ; side to side, and shut your eyes, and try id cease from thinking, but the more you try the less you succeed. And what was the trouble with the farmer ? "Was his conscience uneasy? Had he floated some big mining speculation, in venturing upon which hundreds of men had been beggared and the honest earnings of many a hard day's work swallowed up ? "Was he himself pinched with poverty and dunned with creditors? Had the ...

London Notes. (Specially compiled for "The Watchman.") [Newspaper Article] — Watchman — 22 March 1902

London Notes. {Specially compiled for " Ihe Watchnan") ' A contemporary has the following advertise ment: " If you have frequent headaches, dizzi ness, fainting spells, accompanied by chills, cramp, corns, bunions, chilblains, epilepsy and jaundice, it is a sign that you are not well. Pay your subscription a year in advance and thus make yourself solid for a good obituary notice." A now order of the Kent County Council has come into force by which perambulators and children's mail carts are included in the by-law enforcing the carrying of lights on vehicles. In future all perambulators must carry a light after dark in that county, the penalty for infringing the by-law being a sum not exceeding 40s. On various occasions curious and almost incredible insurances which have beeu effected at Lloyd's come to light. Another can now be added to the list, .for one underwriter has declared his willingness to insure any member or subscriber of Lloyd's against the present epidemic of small-pox ...

The White Cross Movement [Newspaper Article] — Watchman — 22 March 1902

The White Cross Movement It would bo well if all who are interested in i the moral and physical welfare of their fellows I should understand and appreciate the work of I the White Cross League. This work was | initiated nearly twenty years ago by Miss | Kllico Hopkins, one of the bravest and most [ high-minded women who ha ever lived. The ! unspeakable'degradation in which a section of the womanhood of every community is forced to exist, so wrought upon her that she found necessity laid upon her to go out and proclaim publicly the awfulness and shame of their degradation. And she went further for she j proposed a solution, the only possible solution of the problem. She saw clearly that the remedy did not lie in multiplying, "Bescue" agencies, or. in legislating for the protection of girls and women. To rely solely on rescue work which ;most Christian workers had done in the past was simply trying to keep out the ocean with a broom.. While one poor woman was being dragged painfully o...

The above is the simple, short, definite Covenant Pledge of "The Christian Endeavour Home Circle," which is one of the latest developments of the C.E. movement. This idea was first mooted at Nashville three years a go, and still further emphasised at the Cin cinatti Convention last year. Writing to the " C.E. World " Bome time ago, Dr. Clark said: "The possibilities for good of this effort are almost unbounded. It may do not a little towards stemming the tide of irreligion in the family. It may help to sweeten and refine family life for generations to ooine. It may increase the love of parents, and children and brothers and sister...

Correspondence. (We do not hold ourtelre* re*pan*ikle /or the rietcs o our corretpondenU.) THE WORD "BOMAN." To the Editor of " The Watchman." Sir,—The Roman Catholic leaders seem to bo ■wise in their day and generation, for they studiously leave out the term "Roman," and speak of the "Catholic Church." But the Roman Catholic Church is not by any means Catholic. No, net even in its own birthplace, Italy. When I was in Yenice a few years ago I attended the Presbyterian Church, held in St. Mark's Square, where the minister, after 11 years residence in Italy declared from the pulpit, and afterwards to me, that out of the thirty millions of. people in Italy, fully twenty millions had left, or drifted from the Church of Rome, and they were finding relief either in blank atheism, or seeking comfort and shelter iu Protestantism, The Roman Catholic author ities know full well that in their own countries they a'-e losing their grip. Now they are not "^Catholic in their own Jands, for many Pr...
