The Rights of Conscience VERSUS AN INFALLIBLE POPE. [Newspaper Article] — Watchman — 17 May 1902

I :—; ; ; The Eights of Conscience VEHSU3 ^ /ax infallible pope. By Rev. P. J. Stephen. . Protestantism teaches that tlie appeals of God in the Gospel were made to man as a free intelligent being, and that he is accountable to Him for the right use of his powers. Man cannot delegate his responsibility to any ecclesiastical authority. The obligation of knowing the truth as to faith aHd duty rests entirely with himself. Jesus said, " Ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free." It is not enough for one that, the priest knows the truth, or the Church, or the Pope. I must know it for myself, and not merely as a matter of hearsay; it must enter my heart, it must command the assent of my intelligence, it must give the law to my conscience, before it can make me free. . Protestantism affirms that Jesus Christ is the one infallible teacher, and His authority is manifest in the commanding power with which the trutliVsserts itself. The authoritative message of the Gospel was "...

A Day that is Dead. [Newspaper Article] — Watchman — 17 May 1902

A Day that is Dead. (By Alice Mack.) It was the last day of the old year. In a little rjom 111 the historic locality of Sydney known as " The Bocks/' « woman was making a frock. Her face was as soft and white as the snowy muslin she sewed, and her heart was as heavy as the flimsy thing was ligiit. The dainty girl's frock, brought hack the memory of a day when she had worn a dress like this one. •, A new Year's Day when someone had put the sunlight into her heart when he told her that he loved her. The last stitch 'had been put in, and the work "was finished. Carefully laying it on a table beside her, the woman leaned back in her chair and closed her eyes and dreamt. She would be young again, just for a day. Quickly bhe unfastened her black frock and put on the new one. It fitted t^r perfectly, and she thought how slim her figure must still be if a frock that was made for a girl of 20 would still fit her, a woman of 35. She pulled down 'hei hair that she had worn low for 10 many year...

THE Watchman CIRCULATION 9500. SATURDAY, MAY 17, 1102. REDUCTION OF MEMBERS. [Newspaper Article] — Watchman — 17 May 1902

CIRCULATION 9500. SATURDAY, MAY 17, 1102. REDUCTION OP MEMBERS. Promises made by candidates upon the bust\x=req-\ ings are frequently disregarded when success has crowned .their efforts. This is such a well known failing among politicians generally, that • it has ceased to cause any surprise to electors. Wliat, however, may be condoned in an indi\x=req-\ _vidual can not be treated in the same gentle manner when a great principle, or a more em\x=req-\ phaticpromifie, has been given by more influ\x=req-\ -ential personages^ With regard to reduction of .. Members we have to remember that this subject was not the irresponsible charter of one or two candidates anxious to catch votes, carried away at the time by " the exuberance of their own verbosity; but was the distinct pledge given by both political parties, and endorsed most emphatically by the leaders. This being so, it becomes a matter of surprise to find that thp Government having been sustained in office as the direct result of t...

The Australian Protestant Defence Association. FORMATION OF A BRANCH AT ANNANDALE. A large meeting was held on Thursday, 8th May, in St. Aidttn's School Hall, Johnston\x=req-\ street, Annandalo, for the purpose of forming a branch of the A.P.D.A. Alderman J. T. Star- j ling occupied the chair. , Dr. W. M. Dill Macky delivered an address on "The* Necessity for Protestant Organisa\x=req-\ tion," and, in dealing with his subject, he said, that although the Roman Catholics comprised only about one-fourth of the community they exercised power and influence iar beyond their numerical proportion. That influence extended to every department of public life. The reason of their power, he believod, lay in their perfect organisation. The hierarchy of the Church controlled the people to such a degree that liberty of thought and'action was precluded. The wcuKiiess of Protestantism was found in tbe wuut of organisation. The price paid by the Protestants for their civil aud religious liberty tats t...

Obiter Dicta. Mr. J. H. Carrutliers, M.L.A., speaking at tlie opening of the new wharf at Kurnell Beach) the scene of Captain Cook's landing, on April 28th, 132 years ago, said truly that " Aro our Governments so tardy in recognising Captain Cook, the discoverer of Australia because he' was not a native ? In England, Cook's name," he 6aid, in the course of a capital speech, " and birthplace were honored, and Australia—and New South Wales particu\x=req-\ larly—had no right to he second in tins respect. He had been amused by a recent proposal to publicly honor certain events and certain*, people, emanating from the A.N.A. The A.N.A. would not countenance anything that was not Australian, nor honor anyone who was not born here—and Captain Cook was not a native. (Laughter). Yet it was he who had discovered this country, and laid the | foundation of the subsequent prosperity and I happiness of the people." (Hear, hear.). But it is hardly fair to accuse the A.N.A. of refusing to countenan...

A PSEUDO TEACHER. To the Editor of the "Watchman." [Newspaper Article] — Watchman — 17 May 1902

| ! A P8EUD0 IBAOBJEE. ; To tlie Editor of the ""Watchman." Dear Sir,—Witli much respect for the Presbyterian minister of "Waverloy, his letter fails in defending* what is utterly indefensible. For obvious reasons,'it ia a well established rule in publio affairs, that civil servants should not actively»intervene in politics, or other, matters, in which such intervention may lead\x=req-\ to insubordination and dispeace in the public. Beryico ; and it is sureiy incumbent that such inhibitiou should be specially inforced upon oue employed in tho serious work of teaching* history. Surely it is not to bo argued that the prefix "professor" before the surname of this teacher frees him from the same wholesome discipline .to which the .other public teachers of the State are amenable. Is it not rather the' other way about, and his responsibility.£here-: by increased ? Thence, premising tliis much, and from the moat charitable point of view, this teacher's iniscondnct is very reprehensible. Of...
