"Thy Kingdom Come." No. I. [Newspaper Article] — Watchman — 10 May 1902
' Thy Kingdom Come." BY " UNCLE WUIGHTMAJST." No. I. Our Blessed Lord taught His disciples how to pray. After the same manner we are taught also. "Thy kingdom come, Thy will be done on earth, as it is in heaven." Looked into, we see a meaning in these sentences. "Thy Kingdom come." Is only a spiritual kingdom meant in the generally accepted term ? or is it actually a temporal kingdom, tangible, to be recognised by those, who, as nations, do not belong to it ? As the sentences are placed we see that the doing of God's will on earth, " as it is in heaven," depends on tho coming of Qis kingdom. But what is the Kingdom of Heaven ? The Holy Boman Catholic Church is a structure, the foundation of which is a distortion of the word of God. "We know full well that that church is a political organisation whose whole aim is Empire, pure and simple. It has discovered 111 tho pages of Holy "Writ that the Kingdom of God on earth has a national existence, is visible, is powerful, is rich beyond co...
The Great Teacher. [Newspaper Article] — Watchman — 10 May 1902
The (ft'eat Teacher. I love to feel tint I am taught And as a little child, To note the lessons I have learnt In passing through the wild. For X am sure God teaches me And Iris own gracious hand, Each varying page before mo spreads By love and wisdom'planned. I often think I cannot spell The lessonB I must learn, And then in weariness and doubt I pray the page may turn. But'time goes on and soon I find I'm learning all the time, And words that seemed most dimly traced Shine out in rainbow smilo. Or sometimes strangely I forget Ami learning o'er and o'er, A lesson all with teardrops wet Which I had lenint before. He uliides me not, but waits awhile Then wipes mv heavy eyes, Oh what a teacher is our God • So patient and so wise. Bark silent hours of study fall And I can scarcely see, The one beside me whispers low What is so hard to thee; 'Tis easier then: I am so glad I am not taught alone; JTis such a help to overhear A lesson like my own. Sometimes the Master gives to me A strange ...
The Prisoner at the Vatican. [Newspaper Article] — Watchman — 10 May 1902
The Prisoner at the Vatican. BY REV. JOHN OSBORN. Dr. Kelly's lecture 011 tliis subject is very suggestive of thought. Oue naturally is moved to feelings of sympathy towards the frail old 'luau, wlio dares not travel beyond the limits of his prison walls, lost a stray bullet or the assassin's knife should send him to his account This is a very unfortunate and undignified position for any man to be in, especially for so distinguished a persouage as the '* Vicar of Christ." Of the 4.View's * Master it is recorded "Jesus walked 110 more openly among the Jews," but unlike his Vicar he did not isolate himself, for notwithstanding the hate and opposition of the Jews lie continued his work.j I among men. . He travelled to the city of ' 'Ephraim and subsequently to Jerusalem via Bethany.' His mission was a people's mission, and''lie prosecuted it to the end.' "But His Vicar cau only reach the people by Bulls and Eucyclicals, or iu other words by the press rather than by. the living voice. N...
Gambling and its Prevalence in Australia. [Newspaper Article] — Watchman — 10 May 1902
Gambling and its Prevalence in Australia. By Steiioui.lv. Gambliug seems to be one of the greatest evils which is attacking this fair Common* wealth of Australia, and according to the report submitted by the committtee appointed by the House of Lords to enquire into gambling, it is evident that this evil is more prevalent in Australia than in most parts of the civilised globe, whatever one may tliink of the matter. Of course, we must admit, that gambling does seem to be the great evil in Australia. Intemperance and impurity are bad enough, so far as the prevalence of the evils, but gambling is far worse, that is, if we include all the lottery work, and raffling, etc. Now the evil must be put down in the churches where the raffles and lotteries are held. This certainly must be the first step, as the worldling is able to look on and say, 11 Oli, well, tlie church lias Taffies, ■why should not I speculate a little." It is certainly clear that the rnlfling that goes on in many of our ch...
The Coronation Oath and the Presbyterian Assembly. [Newspaper Article] — Watchman — 10 May 1902
The Coronation Oatli and tlie Presbyterian Assembly. The Rev. Robert Thomson, of Ladywell Parish Church, Glasgow, occupies the sama position in that city as the champion of Protestantism that our own Dr. Dill Macky does in Sydney. Like Dr. Dill Macky, moreover, his actions do not always commend themselves to the majority of his clerical brethren. One notable exeeptiou, however, is recorded, and that is in connection with the attempt to amend the Coronation Oath. In the Glasgow " Herald " just to hand there is an account of a meeting of the Established Church Presbytery at which Mr. Thomson moved the following resolution:— "That th«! attempt now being made to tamper with the statutory declaration required by the Bill of Rights and the Act of Settlement to be made by the Sovereign of the realm is dangerous to the Protestant succession and the stability of the Throne, and the petitioners humbly pray the House of Commous to oppose any alteration, as being mischievous, unconstitutional, ...

SIR WALTER SCOTT. [Newspaper Article] — Watchman — 10 May 1902
Sin Walter Scott. I liave just finished reading " A History of English Romanticism in the Nineteenth Century," by Prof. Henry A. Boers. The professor" is a delightfully humane student, a companion by the way, not a a&lt;lry-as-dust" of portentous mien. Sir "Walter Scott rightly holds the place of honour in this history of the triumph of romanticism in Englisli literature. He accomplished the task wliich his eighteenth ceutuvy forerunners, had essayed in vain, Savs Prof. Heel's: "Ho possessed the true enchanter's wand, the historic imagination. With this in his liand, he raised the dead past to life, made it once more conceivable, made it even actual. Before Scott no. genius of the highest order had lent itself wholly Or mainly I to introspection. He is the middle point and ' the cuinllllfltiou of English romanticism. His name , is, all in all, tft£ "lost important on our list." Thus Prof. Beers, wliile admitting that his delineation of feudal society is not final, that there...
THE [?] WAY. [Newspaper Article] — Watchman — 10 May 1902
. The I.vky "Way. The u London Times " literary essay, " Lit\x=req-\ erature,"'lias quietly gone into the limbo of d«ad journals. It is rumoured that tlie Harmsworth's intend to start a halfpenny morning paper in Eden\x=req-\ burgh, and that Pearson lias a similar project in view for Glasgow. A successful weekly in Scotland must no longer be a newspaper, but a sort of magazine, providing a pabulum not to be found in the daily papers, for the working classes now read the evening papers, and have no more interest than any other class in news a week old.
A Retrospect. ROMANISM v. PROTESTANTISM. ARTICLE IV.—By REV. HENRY GAINFORD. [Newspaper Article] — Watchman — 10 May 1902
A Retrospect. ROMANISM v. PROTESTANTISM. Article TV.—By Rev. Henry Gaim okd. We are often remiuded by Romanists of the rapid strides Romanism is making. Is she actually increasing from without, that is, are Protestants going over to the R.C. fold ? Or iB it the natural increase by birth among her own people ? There is a marked difference in these methods of increase. For the same reason Protestantism may also claim an increase by rapid strides. But is Rome gaining by converts froin Protestantism ? One expects her to be increasing from without ? An R.C, writer, Bap^ot, says that true Roman progress died in England with Cardinal Manning, and that it is now quite stationary, if not on the decline. He then by figures shows tho decline in England of Romanism. In 1841—GO years ago—there wore 7,000,000, or about 28 per cent. R.C's., while in 1891— 10 years ago—there were only a little over 3,000,000, or about 14*9 per cent, of Roman Catholics. Does not this show a steady decline ? This hon...

No MONEY. No MASSES. (To the Editor of the "Express.") [Newspaper Article] — Watchman — 10 May 1902
No Money. No Masses. (Totlie Editor of the "Express.") Sir,—The methods of the Italian Mission are man/, varied and peculiar. The spirit of the age being- antagonistic to the. Papacy, its agents are frequently hard pressed as to ways and means. Cardinal Yaughan, in his pamphlet, " On the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass," p. 42, says that " So far as the practical effects upon the soul are concerned, the Holy Mass has in some sense the advantage over Calvary." There took place the most momentous transaction of time, the atonement. The Cardinal states—lie surely known!—that the canonical honorarium for the mass is five shillings. That figure is beyond the means of many, but the Church being a very accomodating institution, priests may say a mass for lmlf-a-cro\vn. Father R. Power, of Canterbury, was willing, in 1894, to offer nine masses for one shilling, while for threepence he was prepared to forward " a richly indulgenced rosary that had touched the martyr's (St. Thomas a Becket's) sacr...
