Correspondence. (We do not hold ourselves responsible for the riews [?] our correspondents.) "LIVE AND LET LIVE." To the Editor of "The Watchman." [Newspaper Article] — Watchman — 19 April 1902

Correspondence. 0Ve do not hold ourselves ret]>viinible /or the our correspondents.) "LIVE AND LET LIVE." To the Editor of " The Watchman." ♦ Sir,—Under the above heading the principle 'involved is fair and equitable to all concerned, but is it the principle put in practice by the members of the B.C. community ? In this or any other country where the members of- their community have any influence, the reverse is the case, and a system of boycotting;, so well understood by them, is practiced under the guiding hand of the priest, much to the detriment of the Protestants who know it well enough, but fail through false liberality to act. What do most of our leading public men practice? At every opportunity that offers and at all public functions they laud and praise the Roman Catholics on the solidity of their vote, thereby hoping to be remembered at the polling booth next election. There is no other reason that can be assigned for it. Travel in any part of the Commonwealth you l...

STRANDED. To the Editor of "The Watchman." [Newspaper Article] — Watchman — 19 April 1902

STRANDED. To the Editor of " The Watchman.'' Sir,—Believing that your paper lias come into existence to uphold liberty and justice to all, and to extend anything that may tend to justice and progress, I am making bold to bring my own stranded condition under the notice of your readers. My stranded condition is owing to my refusal to make money at the expense of my Protestant principles, hence the epistle:— I am at present a professional musician trying to introduce to the notice of religious and temperance people a new method of teaching music reading. The idea wo have endeavored to adopt is to bring the method before the various religious and temperance societies in the form of entertainments on half profit. "When we are riot working with any society .we take halls on our own responsibility, and also exhibit in the streets. We had very fair success in N.S.W. for some three months in connection with the Salvation Army and the Good Templars. Also in Queensland we had fair success, ha...

THE ZIONIST MOVEMENT. To the Editor of the "Watchman." [Newspaper Article] — Watchman — 19 April 1902

THE ZIONIST MOVEMENT. To the Editor of the " Watchman." Sir,—In the interesting letter "by your correspondent "Uncle Weightman " in your issue of 29th March, he refers amongst other things ' to the distinction mado in prophecy between the two branches of God's covenant people, back-sliding Israel and treacherous Judah, the outcasts of Israel and the dispersed of Judah, etc. To my mind and perhaps to many of your readers as well, this seems so clear, that it is a matter for wonder how any intelligent reader of the scriptures can fail to see, that while the Jews, or House of Judoh, were to continue in unbelief, and also under the curse pronounced upon them by Our Lord, and1 the prophets, because of their rejection and crucifixion of the Messiah, and their bitter persecution of TTir Apostles, until their .conversion at the close of dispensation (Zech xii., 10) the ten tribed kingdom after its punishment of captivity in ' Assyria and its Lo-ammi condition would again become the sons of ...

THE Watchman [?] [?] SATURDAY, APRIL 19, 1902. GAMBLING. [Newspaper Article] — Watchman — 19 April 1902

SATURDAY, APRIL 19, 1102. GAMBLING*. "We are rejoiced to see that the Federal Government is sticking manfully to its guns in regard to the new laws relating to gambling. It has been finally decided that a prohibition order be issued against the well-known Tatter\x=req-\ palls', as also against two other persons engaged in Art Union lotteries. It will bo remembered that frantic efforts were put forth to prevent the gambling clause- finding place in the new Post and'Telegraph Bill, both town and country being stumped for signatures to a petition agaipst its passage. All, however, has been of no avail, the Bill has become law, and a date fixed for its coming into force. The power to suppress this national curse has thus been given to the authorities, and it only remains to see what use will be made of it. That the suppression of eo wide-spread an evil is no light task may be freely admitted, though it is to be hoped there will be no shirking of the duty thus thrust into the hands of th...

London Notes. {Specially compiled for " 7 'hf Watchman") Mistress, Maid, and Master.—A sensible suggestion ou the mistress and uifiid problem was made bv the Blackburn Registrar on Monday, when Elizabeth Matthews, a domestic servant, sued Mrs. Ann Whalley, of Spring Bauk, Preston New Road, her former mistress, for wages earned and wages iu lieu of notice. On New Year's Eve the plaintiff was oh duty until very late, and had to rise early on the next' morning. When she nought a little rest in the afternoon, the defendant knocked at her door and told her to get up and make tea, and she said she would be down in. a few minutes.

Spir ts in Purgatory. [Newspaper Article] — Watchman — 19 April 1902

Spir ts in Purgatory. I At the close of the year 1901, at Clentor, Cumberland, England, in the Roman Catholic Church, ft special sen-ice was held on behalf of spirits iu purgatory. The above service was fully described to me, just recently, by a resident of Cleator now on a visit to Sydney; his description appeared to me to have much of the tone of the doings of the Church in South America, Spain, etc., where Papal authority reigns. The party witnessing this service had married a Roman Catholic lady, himself being Protestant, and only visited the church after great persuasion from his wife. He relates that curiosity gained him a seat near the altar. At a certain period of the service, the spirits, five in number, appeared in the subdued light of the church. The words and action of the priest—enough to unnerve a strong man—naturally impressed the whol»k congregation, many to emotion. Just at this stage of the ceremony, something unforeseen occurred. On© of the spirits leaped from its...

From Slavery to a Throne. [Newspaper Article] — Watchman — 19 April 1902

From Slavery to a Throne. The romantic story of the lunpress-Downger of China is ouo which is possible oulv in what lias been well called uThe Flowery Land.". Shu rejoices in the name of Tszehi-Toauvri\x=req-\ Kangi-Chnoyu-Chunngcheng-Shokung-Chiu\x=req-\ hieu-Chungsili, but as life in China is too short for time to be wasted, the name lias been shortened to the more simple one of Tze-hsi. She is de.scribeu as being- of middle height, with black hair, dark eves, and feet which have never known disfigurement For tliis reason a witty journalist described her as the only man in tiie celestial Empire. Various rumours regarding her parentage art1 afloat, from declaring her to be the daughter of two second-rate actors of inferior position, to the usual descent from * poor but honest parents.* None of these are correct however, except maybe the last. She is absolutely of noble birth, her father having been Li-Tzun, a Mnnchu noble who held at one time an important Government post at Pekin. ...

A Lost Daughter of Israel. . By Lii.y Phoebe. , (All Eights Deserved.) CHAPTER II. " I trust, Mrs. Levi, that you did not attach any importance to mv sister's nonsense ? Believe me, no thought other than friendship for Miaa Leu was entertained by me for one moment. Her engagement precluded that, even if she hod not been of a different race. And although her beauty would inspire any man with admiration, one can see that she is too devoted to Mr. Levisou to waste a thought on me, so that you need apprehend no danger so fr aas I am concerned—1 am merely obliging my people in taking the part of King Solomon."

Stories from the Past. HOLLAND'S STRUGGLE FOR RELIGIOUS FREEDOM. II. (All Rights Reserved,) [Newspaper Article] — Watchman — 19 April 1902

Stories from tlie Past. HOLLAND'S STRUGGLE FOE RELIGIOUS FREEDOM. II. By C. E, S. T. (All Biglits Reserved,) Tme lotli century was particularly disastrous to Roman Catholicism, as being the. period when the Beformation in so many countries hurst like a group of youug giants over the whole of Europe. "With the exceptions of Italy and Spnin (still held in darkest night by the thraldom of Holy Church), every country •where Home held sway was awakening from the sleep of centuries, and throwing off the chains which so long lmd held them captive. Nowhere was * the struggle keener or fought out with more sanguinary ferocity than in Holland and the Netherlands. There it was that Home put forth her greatest efforts to make of the inhabitants a terrifying- example to the lest of her rebellious subjects; and but too well did she succeed. Aided by the cruel tyrannical Government of the titular Sovereign of that unhappy land, Holland and the adjoining provinces became the scene of the most awful...

A Retrospect. ROMANISM v. PROTESTANTISM. ARTICLE II.—By REU. HENKEY GAINFORD. [Newspaper Article] — Watchman — 19 April 1902

A Retrospect. ROMANISM v. PBOTESTANTISM. Article H.—By Reu. Hekhv Gai.vfoiid. When Dr. Redwood was in Sy»lm\v, speaking at St. Mary's Cathedral, he is reported to hare said of Protestantism, that " It desecrates the home, pollutes the nuptial bed, and lowers the dignity of womanhood." Is this -statement in harmony with facts! If Protestantism destroys the sacred character of the home and lowers tlie dignity of womanhood, then clearly it must be the greatest foe .to national life, for the nation is born aud cradled in the home. However odious comparisons may be, at times they are necessary in sheer self-defence. The difference between the people of Catholic countries and those of Protestant lands is indeed most marked, and one is obliged to say, not in favour of the former. If Romanism as a system possesses all the virtues, then surely they should be seen iu her disciples. The nation, too, is what the morality of the people is. On the ground, therefore, that the home is the seed of t...

The Choir Gallery. [Newspaper Article] — Watchman — 19 April 1902

The Choir Gallery. Madame Melba will probably be called upon to sing the solo part m the Coronation Ode, composed by Dr. Edward Edgar. The composer is one of the most prominent of British musicians. Stainer's "Crucifixion," at St. Paul's, Melbourne Cathedral, on Good Friday night, had I all the elements no doubt of an impressive religious service, except that one would have chosen the work of a great composer instead of a third-rate. "Why pick Stainer when there are all the treasures of Beethoven, Mozart, Mendelsohn, and the like, without fee of copyright ? How very seldom one sees the name of any great composer on the programme affixed to the door of the Cathedral for every day. Yet Melbourne has a lofty musical taste. Melbourne Philharmonic Society rendered " Elijah " on Good Friday night. This iunnor\x=req-\ j tal work was first given at a Birmingham . matinee, with Mendelssohn as conductor.
