Obituary. [Newspaper Article] — Watchman — 5 April 1902

Obituary. We are sorry to have to chronicle the death of Mrs. J. Earl, aged 76, of Bririg611y,' on Monday, 17th instant. The deceased lady some two months ago underwent an operation for cancer in the Camden Hospital, but from the first it was so serious that very little hope was entertained of her recovery. Nearly two years ago she underwent an operation for the same decease. Mrs. Earl , was well-known in the Camden district, having resided there some forty years before going to Bringelly. In both places she was highly respected for her humble, Christian piety, of which she was a living ex ample, and we might also add a dying example* All through her sufferings she manifested a beautiful spirit of complete trust in God. A husband, two married daughters, and other relations are left to mourn her loss. Her re mains were interred in the Wesleyan cemeteiy, Camden, on "Wednesday,* 19th March, the Rev. Cr. Thompson officiating. A memorial service was also held on Sunday, 23rd March, in th...

They were then taken out to the New castle "A" pit at the Glebe, where, through the courtesy of Mr. S. Keightly, officers wore ready to take them over the workings. Such a crowd had never visited, at one time, any pit in this district before, over 70 being taken down in a very few minutes.

Maliuki. AN INCIDENT "OF LIFE IN THE KING COUNTRY, NEW ZEALAND. By Glas'ce MaoLeax. (All rights reserved.) CHAPTER HL On we went, Mr. Bung on his big horse leading at a hand gallop, like John Gilpin of old, that citizen of credit and renown, till both horses and riders were fairly reeking with heat and excitement, on tilI the crossing of the river suddenly come in the way. A warning shout from Mr. Williams conies either too late, or is unheeded by the frantic Bung, so stopping suddenly—as horses will do when they come to water, and want a drink—poor Mr. Bung was shot head first over his horse's neck right into the centre of the gurgling river. When his fat podgy body re-appeared on the surface, puffing and blowing like the Aquarium walrus, our amusement could no longer be restrained, and we fairly roared with laughter. The situation, however, was rather serious, and Mr. Williams, practical man that he was, at once rode his horse into the water in pursuit of the unfortunate man, who,...

BAPTIST MINISTERS AND INFANT BAPTISM. To the Editor of "The Watchman[?] [Newspaper Article] — Watchman — 5 April 1902

B APTIST MINISTERS AND INFANT BAPTISM. To the Editor of " The Watchman.nl Sir,—In your leader of March 29th. the astounding statement is mode that "Many leading Ministers.of the Baptist Church baptise infants, recognising the act as a simple dedica tion of children to God on the part of their parents." I venture to challenge this assertion, and consider that such a remarkable revelation should be either substantiated or withdrawn. No leading Baptist Minister in Australia has so far departed from the traditions of his denomin ation and the teaching of the New Testament, and I am not aware of any occupying such a position in the Old Country who have been so recreant to the principles for which our denom ination stands. It is true that some of our ministers practice a simple dedicatory service, In which the child is commended to God in prayer, but the large majority abjure the prac tise, believing that is likely to be misunderstood and regarded by some as a kind of substitute for bapti...

What Christian Endeavor is Doing The ninth annual convention of the Newcastle and District Local Union was the principal event in C.E. circles last -week. It was held on 25th and 26th March, and for attendance, enthusiasm and high, spiritual tone has never been suipassed. The convention opened with a public meet* ing. in Brown-street Congregational Church.; This building had been prettily decorated with blue and white, while a number bf palms and ferns added to its festive appearance.

Correspondence. RITUALISM IN A SYDNEY ANGLICAN CHURCH. To the Editor of the "Watchman." [Newspaper Article] — Watchman — 5 April 1902

Correspondence. RITUALISM IN A SYDNEY ANGLICAN CHURCH. To the Editor of the " Watchman." Sir,—A long communication under the above heading, which appears in your issue of March 29th* seems to bo intended by the writer to | refer to myself and to the church of which it is ! my privelege to be the Rector. This extra ordinary contribution contains a sufficient element of truth to lead myself and others to this conclusion. What motive your contributor "Searchlight" can possibly have in concocting this fabrication, I do not know. It cannot be done in the interests of either truth or charity. Perhaps it is intended as a poor sort of practical joke. His description of the 11 o'clock service on a Sunday morning, when he alleges that he was present, is a foolish parody; while his pretended report of the ridiculously discursive sermon, said to have been preached at that service, is evidently the production of his own fertile brain. Perhaps I may add that I did not preach at any morning servic...

Archbishop Kelly's Lecture. THE PRISONER OF THE VATICAN. (Continued from last issue.) [Newspaper Article] — Watchman — 5 April 1902

^ Archbishop Kelly's Lecture. THE PRISONER OF THE VATICAN. it "VIGOROUS REPIA" BY KILY. T. W. DUNN. . (Continued from last.issue.') I Although we may say that the Pope's tom iporal power began in the eighth century, yet the Pope was little better than a vassal of the Frankish Kings, and afterwards of the Gorman Emperors. Up to the 12th century no Pope was elected without that election being ratified by the Germnn Emperor. Innocent III. was the first Pope to establish the rule that Pome, the Marches, and the hereditary possessions of Matilda should do him homage as Lord Paramount. Thus the last shadow of the Emperor's power over the H Pope passed away. Innocent III., claimed S power to depose and proclaim kings. * In the Coronation Oath of the WTestern Emperors they i swore that they would be submissive to the Pope. That is the kind of Coronation Oath that ouv R.C. friends would like King Edward to take. Now is it not Dr. Kelly? The Emperor Otlio called himself " Emperor by the grace...

III.—GRADUAL REVELATION OULMINATING IN CHRIST SUBSTITUTED FOR ABSOLUTE REVELATION. [Newspaper Article] — Watchman — 5 April 1902

m.—GRADUAL REVELATION OULMI e NATING IN CHRIST SUBSTITUTED FOE ABSOLUTE REVELATION. And in oven more important matters tlian these the same process of .substitution of the new for the old to the material strengthening of the faith has been £oing on. Hie view of revelation which regarded it as the utterance of definite, clear, statements of ultimate religious truths, always perfectly mature whether the man to whom the revela tion came was at the dawn of Israelite history or amung the last of the Prophets, has been slowly withdrawing itself, and its place is being filled by another view. That view is that God revealed Himself in proportion to the needs and the possibilities of the occasion. He made Himself. known in proportion to the capacities of His people, and taught them by line upon line, by precept upon precept, here a little and there a little as they were able to hear and to receive it. We have thus a gradual growth of the religious consciousness and of the knowledge of God fr...

Facts on Romanism. [Newspaper Article] — Watchman — 5 April 1902

Facts oil Romanism. The Protestant Defence Association has come to stay, aud at the next Federal and State elections will be a power in the land. Poli ticians of the Bartonian brand in the future will have to toe the mark and clearly and emphatic ally state which side they are ou. It is now a widely-acknowledged fact that during the struggle iu this State, between the Freetrado and Protectionist parties, that Protection and Roman Catholicism were synonymous. If ever a free people commissioned a body of men to enter the public arena with a " know-no party " policy, they did so when they sent the present Labour Party into power. They were originally sent there to hold the balance of power, and exercise it in the iuterests of the "bone and sinew" of New South "Wales. I helped to build up this Labour "platform, and lip to this momeut I have never voted against it. But let us briefly look where we are now, and in what company we are to bo found !

Modern Methods of Teaching : the Old Testament. Address delivered by Bev. 'Professor Harpee, D.D., at tlie Opening of the 29th Session of St. Andrew's College on Wed nesday, the 19th March. (Continued from last tccek.) —THE APPETITE OF THE CHURCH SUBSTITUTED FOB. INSPIRED DI RECTION IN THE FORMATION OF THE CANON. Then as to the authority on which the Canon of Scripture rests, a similar change lias come over opinion. As you know, the Canon of Scripture is the Church's answer to the question, how do we know what books ore inspired ? And also, how do we know that no important inspired document is lost ? The theoiy popularly sup posed to underlie the Church's answer was that the last o£ the inspired men of the Old Testament and of the New Testament was divinely commissioned to choose the books which should be made sacred, and that by tliis i act of choice we, upon whom the ends of the world have come, were secured equally ayainst deception and against loss. But this idea has been found ...

Correspondence.. (We do not hold ourtclvu re*pon*ible/or the views our correspondent*.) RE RELIGIOUS CENSUS. To the Editor of " The Watchman." Sir, — In this day's " Sydney Morning Herald " an address by Archdeacon Gunther at St. Jolins, Parramatta is reported, and among various Bubjects mentioned, there are some caustic remarks on mauv who claim to belong to the Church of England fold. The following are a few specimens: After expressing surprise at the great increase in numbers for which he accounts in various ways, he states that the "Sydney Synod only gives credit to 40,23$ habitual attendants, therefore there was a dis crepancy in the profession and practice of many. Many were nominal and non-active members, and useless for all practical purposes, having no conception of the Divine origin of the Church and their own responsibilities." These are serious charges to make against many members of one's fold, presuming all had been done by the Archdeacon and his brother shep herds in ...

Romanism in Australia. THE APATHY OF PROTESTANTS. [Newspaper Article] — Watchman — 5 April 1902

Romanism in Australia. THE APATHY OF PKOTESTANTS. j Under the above heading the Rev. J. Green haugli, the well-known London Baptist minister, who in the closing months of lost year visited the principle cities of Australia and New Zealand, gives his impressions in the London Christian World of January 30th of the relative positions of Protestantism and Roman Catholicism in those lands. Of the Anglican Church he says:— " The Anglican Church in the Colonies pro sents few variations from its mother and model in the old land. It has felt the same pulses of revival, been directed and governed by the same currents of thought, and is divided into the same parties, High, Low, and Broad. It yielded, though not quite in the same measure, to the great Oxford movement, and most of its bishops and clergy assume the sacerdotal and sacramental position which that movement claimed for them'. But there is a distinct difference. High Church has not quite that overwhelming preponderance here which it ...
