Atlanta Presbyterian Of South (Newspaper) - June 23, 1920, Atlanta, GeorgiaThe presbyterian of the South?.vol. 94. Richmond va., june 23, 1920. No. 25 Clr Tortal Jjo tas anti comment 11urcii of the pilgrims is Trio v new name Given to the second Church of Washington d. C., of which Rev. Andrew r. Bird is pastor. This Church has done a Fine work in the capital City especially during War times when it ministered to thousands of sol Diers sailors and marines. One who has seen the building in which this Church worships and which was built in Large part by the voluntary labor of its consecrated men wonders How its work has been accomplished. The Church real izes its need of a better building and better equipment and it is appealing to the Church at Largo for help. The general Assembly tits last meeting endorsed this Appeal Costlio artilly and has called upon the Church to give .$125,000 for the erection of a Church that will at least in part meet the needs of the capital. Ity. In. Bird stirred the Assembly mightily is lie told of the great need for work among the thousands of people specially Young men and Young women who go to Washington to work for the government. Temptations Are As great there As anywhere in this country and these Young people need the help of the Church a prohibition is marching on to. World wide Victory. Evidences of this Are appearing in Many places. One of the most re lit instances of this kind comes from wide .1 linking France. It is stated that the new president of that country m. Des Lianel has taken a stand that has not been known before. In the president s Palace there Are famous Well stocked wine cellars. President Deschan Ellias ordered that they shall be locked up to re main locked during his term of office. He has announced that no wine will be served at his table even on state occasions. Vve wonder if he course pursued by or. Bryan when Secre-.1 a i a of state in taking the same stand and f Secretary Daniels in forbidding the use of liquor in the United states Navy did not have something to do with strengthening Tho rage of president Deschanel. May the tribe of these courageous men increase. Conventions conferences and gather Ings of Many kinds Are being held As never before either in number or size to discuss any phases of Many religious subjects. The anally Deal chiefly with some phase of work hat is being done or that it is thought ought to be done. The question sometimes arises As whether Tho Church is not being or con a a toned. Whatever May l o said in regard ,0 the direct results of the conventions two linings Aro very certain. First Christian peo ple cannot meet together to discuss any sub fiet connected with religion in which they Are jointly interested without getting better Ach painted with one another. And there is a i eat Deal of truth in one of Billy sunday Shi,.vingh, get acquainted with your neigh Boran l you will like him the More Woi now of what other people Are doing for the Jvan coment of god s kingdom Tho More wore willing to Overlook what to have been accustomed to considering their shortcomings and so the More willing we will be to work with them in a common cause. In the second place Christian people Are helped in their own experience and spiritual talking Over with others the great things of the kingdom. Besides this every convention gains More or less publicity and to that extent religion and religious work is brought to the attention of Many peo ple some being influenced who would not be reached by the Ordinary Means of presenting religious matters to the Public. So Fai As we know no convention held by people of evangelical churches has failed to accomplished Good. Subscribers in some cases seem to have overlooked the fact that the High Cost of production has compelled us to raise the subscription Price of the paper. We kept the Price Down just As Long As we could and at a considerable loss to ourselves. At last we were compelled to announce a change of Price. Behave been very much gratified to see that this Advance in Price has met the very general approval of our subscribers. A few however seem to have overlooked the notice that has been published a number of times and still Send $2 for renewal. The Price of the paper since the first of May has been $2.50. For $2 we can Only give credit for ten months. We believe All of our subscribers will realize that it was necessary to make Flie change of Price when they Are told that the Cost of paper which is one of our largest items of expense is now nearly four times what it was a Short time ago. F methodists seem to Knoy How to make Money in their publishing business. The Northern methodist Church publishing House has just issued its report for the year. This shows that the net profits of the business were$517,000. Of this amount $400,000 was appropriated to ministerial Relief to be added to the gifts of the churches for the support of aged and infirm ministers. The publishing House however has not found out How to make Money out of Church papers. These papers belong to the Church and Are financed bythe publishing House. Last year there was a loss of $31,600, which had to be made up out of the profits of the other part of the Busi Ness. 4 information has been received fro several sources As to two presbyteries which we mentioned in connection with the first meet ing of the general Assembly in Charlotte . Rev. Or. James a. Lyons who pm he the opening Sermon belonged to Tom Buckbee presbytery and was pastor at Columbus presbytery is now known As East Mississippi presbytery. Rev. Or. John s. Wilson was pastor of the first Church Atlanta in what was known As Flint River a rearrangement of the Georgia presbyteries this name was dropped and a part of its Terri tory was used in forming a Tanta presbytery. Women Are coming to the front in anyways and Uliey Are accomplishing much Good in the world. But there Are some places where some women Are trying to get into the limelight and where they will not accomplish Good. We Are glad it was not our wife Daugh Ter or sister who was taken upon the shoulders of two men and marched around the Hall Dur ing the Republican party convention in Chi Cago in one of the noisy and uproarious endorsements of one of the nominations for the office of president. It will be a sad Day Fortis country when the distinction Between men and women is obliterated and men cease to show to women the respect and esteem which belongs to them and which True women have received from True men in a marked degree in this coun try in the past. May it never grow less and May women always deserve i tipping is one of the nuisances of travel and the patronage of hotels and restate rants. It is a Well established fact that when a Man goes to a hotel if he does not tip the waiters to will not get satisfactory service. The hotel makes a fixed charge for its accommodations which the guest pays but he does not get what he pays for unless he makes an additional payment to the servants. This is claimed to be necessary because the servants get Small wages. If this be True then the hotel should pay better wages and add the increase to its regular charges. Tipping makes the Tipper uncomfortable because he feels that he is being held up under a threat of poor service if he does not tip. It is demoralizing to those who Are tipped. It is receiving what they have no moral right to which is generally shown inthe Way the tip is Given and received. A Gen eral movement on the part of those who serve the Public to put a Stop to this custom will meet with very general approval. Farmers have always been the sturdy Back Bone of this country. They have not Only done their work and performed their duties at Home but they have sent into Tho cities their sons who in Many departments of business and professional life have become leaders Amon the people of our land. There can be no very serious trouble to come to this country As Long As the Farmers Are True to the principles upon which our country and the Christian Church Are founded. Recently the Mississippi Valley association made up of Farmers representing a population of 32,000,000, heard with approval the annual address of their president in which he claimed to be speaking for the association lie said pc arc going to get away from the individualist quacks and political self seekers and return to government by Law instead of government by Force in mass form. We arc going to see that the soviet and what it stands for Are smashed so that you cannot Pink them up with a scoop shovel. We Are going to get Tho peo Leback to the Constitution of the United states a interpreted in the Light of the ten command
