A Retrospect, ROMANISM v. PROTESTANTISM. [Newspaper Article] — Watchman — 5 April 1902

A Retrospect, ROMANISM v. PROTESTANTISM. Article I.—By Henry Gaocford. As a religious system Romanisn has . been before the world for centuries. Books hare been -written for and against her policy and influence upon the world. In * writing con cerning Romanism one does not speak against those who kneel at her altar, but comments upon the system ecclesiastical and political, for it is simply impossible in the light of Rome's claim for temporal power to ignore the political aspect of the Roman powers that be. The public utterances too of her leaders are open to criticism. ' . "We need not go out of our own State for matters of this kind. Statements'have been made again and again which have never been proved; which are false, and have never been withdrawn and apologised for. ' In this articfe the words of Dr. Redwood form ample ground for comment. ' He is reported to have said:— • " That the leaders and founders of Protestantism— Luther,. Calvin and Zwinglius-r—were notorious for their...

Show, inaugu rated by tlio Royal Agricultural Society of N.8.W., was opened on the 2Gtli instant, and terminated last Thursday with a complimentary benefit to the popular and hard-working secre tary, Mr. F.

The now title was very happily timed, for the influ ence of the society and its excellent exhibitions at Moore Park, has extended through Aus tralia and Tasmania, and over to New Zealand very rapidly in recent years. Its effect on Maoriland is very apparent, especially in Christchurcli, whose annual show in Novem ber is the shotv par excellence of New Zealand. The arrangements in vogue at the cathedral city's annual show are based on the excellent standard set up at Moore Park, and in a lesser degree, the influence is felt at Taliuna Park, the picturesqu...

THE Watchman [?] [?] SATURDAY, APRIL 5, 1902. AN "INFALLIBLE" MINISTRY. [Newspaper Article] — Watchman — 5 April 1902

SATURDAY, APRIL 5, 1)02. AN '• INFALLIBLE" MINISTRY. Mr. O'Suijjvai?, Minister of Public Works, 'appears to have constituted himself champion for the Ministry, holding himself in readiness to take up the cudgels in its defence, whenever . criticism is indulged in. The fact that his services in his fighting capacity are so frequently needed, speaks more highly for. Mb pugnacity and valour than for the infallibility of his friends. It is, in fact, evident that criticism would not be so indignantly resented were infallibility not claimed. The latest dis play of his oratorical fireworks was given at Newcastle recently, the occasion being the turning of the first sod of the Merewother Beach, tramway. This opportunity was apparently eagerly seized upon to deliver a trenchant and abusive attack upon the two Sydney morning papers, for not seeing things through. Mr. O'Sullivan's spectacles. The head and front of their offending appears to be that they refuse to receive every Government finan...

NEWCASTLE BRANCH. [Newspaper Article] — Watchman — 5 April 1902

NEWCASTLE BRANCH. Our correspondent iu Coalopolis writes:— The usual monthly meeting was held in the Cambrian-hall on Wednesday, ilarch 27th. The minutes of previous meeting and the corres pondence having been dealt with, the resignation of the president was received with regret, owing to his removal to Sydney. A communication from Mr. Madgwick stating that the Council had resolved to tax members of branches every quarter, was held over for discussion, as it was pointed out that no such measure was in the constitution adopted at the commencement of the year. It was also pointed out that while the need of help from the various branches of the Association was recognised as necessary to the Council that the branches should have a say. in the matters more especially as in all demo cratic societies there was the well-known maxim of " No taxation without representation," that places outside of Sydney and suburbs Would require special consideration, that the best way to extinguish weak bra...

The Australian Protestant Defence Association. NEWTOWN BRANCH. [Newspaper Article] — Watchman — 5 April 1902

The Australian Protestant Defence Association. NEWTOWN BRANCH. | Ox Thursday, 27th March, in connection with I the Newtown Branch of the Australian Prot estant Defence Association, the Rev. J. A. Nolan, by special request, delivered a lecture in the Wesleyan Hall on "The Seige of Deny." The chair was taken by Mr. King, the President of the Newtown Branch of the Association. Mr. -Nolan made a preliminary statement to the effect that, in consenting to locture on the Siege of Derry, ho must not be taken to ex press any approval of war as a sane and rea sonable method of settling international dis putes. "\Vhatever may have been the case two centuries ago, wlien Derry was besieged, lie could not think it right, in the dawning of the twentieth century of Christian civilisation, that statesmen should try to decide an international dispute by hiring men to shoot one another. That is something tliat, with the advance of human intelligence, must surely pass away. If the Old Testament allowed...

The Literary Lounger. [Newspaper Article] — Watchman — 5 April 1902

The Literary Lounger. I wonder if* ever the tliTee-volume novel will return. Many people regret it, especially the confirmed novel-reader. I imagine the difference between holding a one-volume novel closely printed and cumbersome, when lying in bed or sitting in a railway carriage, and the pleasant lightnesBjand admirably clear typo of the old novel or of the Tauchurty edition. The latter especially commends itself to holiday reading, to reading out of doors at sea-washed Coogee, or the sunny slope of the Blue Moun tains, by the fireside during our briof winters, or at a hundred different times when one is tired and headachy, and needs the relaxation of the story book. The present fashion is especially hard on old people, who stumble over the small print, and whose eyes it tries, and yet who are the principal customers of our School of Arts, and the other oxeellent leading libraries of the city. The lawsuit between Messrs. Pearson, the publishers, and Mr. Hall Cain« eonceruing the a...

The Pope's Temporal Power. [Newspaper Article] — Watchman — 5 April 1902

The Pope's Temporal Power. < Father Kelly was more ingenious than in genuous when he informed his flock, the other day, that the Pope had no temporal power. It must, test the gullibility of the -faithful when they compare the above statement with, the telegraphic announcement that the Secular Tribunal of the Vatican had sentenced Seotto, the man who put his hand into' the plethoric bag of Peter's pence, to eight years imprison ment. The Pope's temporal power is more absolute within his territory, the Leonine City, than that of any other ruler in the world. It is not, with the Papacy, a simple question of temporal power, but of the extent of that temporal power, and the veiled threat of Father Kelly as to the use of worldly means to attain the end can be best estimated by perusal of the following extract from the canon law of the Church of Pome from which it will appear that the spiritual and temporal authority of the Pope is proclaimed to be paramount, in the British domi...

Stories from the Past. I. THE HUGUENOTS OF FRANCE AND THE MASSACRE OF ST. BARTHOLEMEW. (All Rights Reserved.) [Newspaper Article] — Watchman — 5 April 1902

Stories from the Past. I. THE HUGUENOTS OF FBANCE AND THE MASSACRE OF ST. BABTHOLEMEW. (All Eights Eeserred.) There is no brighter record of religious con viction overcoming the most cruel of persecu tions, than the history of France tel's in the story of the Huguenots. No form of cruelty and oppression which the age permitted, and the Boman Catholic Church approved, was wanting; from torture in lonely dungeons, to death under hideous forms in4 the presence cf gloating thousands. Still the deathless faith of the French Protestants lived on. Though rapine and murder might be their fate, though they died in serried ranks of battle, by secret assas sination, and by massacre in their homes at the hands of brutal mobs, yet still that faith lived on undaunted and undimnied. Qow dark and apparently hopeless was the road they trod let history tell: how at length they won a grudg ing recognition from their foes, and some sort of religious freedom to worship in tHfeir own faith is among the w...

The Protestant Watchtower. The St. Patrick's Day Banquet [Newspaper Article] — Watchman — 5 April 1902

The Protestant Watchtower. "The St. Patrick's Day Banquet -was a " great time entirely." The " discourse" •was very amusing. Indeed, the idea of Irish Romanists honouring St. Patrick at all iB as funny as it can be. There could be only one thing funnier, and that would be die opinion the Saint* would give concerning his R.C. eulogists if he could re-visit the " ould sod." # ♦ * « St Patrick not Romaaist— He had no communion nor any connection whatever with Home. He dispensed the Lord's Supper with both bread and wine. He claimed that eveiy doctrine, preached and practised, must be clearly drawn from the Bible, and he did all he could to instruct his .people in the scriptures. He never misused the Bible as do his priestly admirers, who take out of it the most ridiculous notions as conjurors take plum puddings and all sorts of things out of a hat. ♦ ♦ • * »•# The Saint Preached the Gospel of salvation by faith in Jesus.

To the King he is bound by a loyalist oath, From the false and the foe to defend him; ' And the lips that are pledged may be whiten'd in death, But.they never shall speak of surrendering. To the Throne, to the Church, to the Bible he clings— Treble-anchored he rides on the ocean; Contented to float, he despises the wings (^f each airy;and infidelrnotion. Treble-anchored, he rests till the Pilot appears, And the qrder for loosing is given; Then his anchor- he weighs, and in triumph he steers Through tlio portal that opens to Heaven.

The Kev. Dr. Dill Macky occupied the chair, and in his opening remarks, which were frequently applauded, recounted the several steps wliich had been taken by the committee appointed by the shareholders to initiate the paper. Tenders had been invited by advertisement for the print ing of it, and that of the firm of Messrs. \V. M. Madgwiek and Sons, had been accepted, not only because it was the lowest, but because all things considered it seemed to the committee to be to the best interests of the paper, that it should be printed by a firm whose nead was a member of the A.P.D.A. The first number came out on the 1st February, 1902. We started with an -i...
