Asso- ciated Press states that the Korean sovereignty has ceas- ed and that Mutsch Ito, Em- peror of Japan, will 'become absolute ruler of Korea next Monday, when the agreement, (between Emperor Yi Syek of Korea and Mutsch Ito, which was signed about August 22, will be officially promulgated. AFFECTED BY SMOKE Forest Fires Cloud the Pacific Coast-Lat- est Reports Spokane, Aug. com; munication with the St. Joe Valley of Idaho was restored today for the first time since the forest fires be- came serious, but it is as yet impos- sible to verify the reports of. large loss of life among fire fighters, addi- tional to the eighty-six reported dead by government officers. The estimate of approximately 200 dead in the whole fire area is adhered to by those most familiar with the situation. Eighty are missing. Complete returns have not yet been received from the d'Alene region in Idaho. When these are included in it is thought the list of missing will "be materially re- duced. The missing include Ranger Hollingshead's crew on Big Creek, 26 men; Ranger Thompson's crew at In- dian Lake, 34 men; Holzer Creek camp, 15 men, are reported safe by j District Forester Greely.

Amendment Offered-Members of the General Board of Missions Chosen-Conference Hearing Its Close Number 218 Victoria, Aug. debate on church union was resumed'this morn- ing by Rev. Dr. Antliff. Lack of loy. alty to Methodism could not, he said, oe charged against those who -favored union. They believed it would 'bring good. jThat is the "belief of each, of the churches concerned. If this basis is rejected, the greater good will be indefinitely postponed. As to the doc- trines being Calvinistic, we might al- so say .that parts of the Bible were the same. The facts of sovereignty and Iree will are mysteriously blend- ed in. the divine order of the world. True, there must be compromised but they will not be In essentials. Evan- gelism is now encouraged by all these cnurches and the Christian Endeavor movement incorporated many features of the class meeting. Superannuation Fund Not 'Protected Griffin depreciated -the use of ridicule in this especially against those who opposed it He was not too sure this movement was of God. The Lord would not favor any movement that deprived His servants of their just claims. Dr. Griffin is treasurer of the superannuation fund and" contends that'under the proposed union this fund is not adequately pro- tected and that its rights will 'be vio- lated. In doctrines we had surren- dered everything. He would defy any man 'to show where -the Presbyterians had surrendered anything. Hon. E. J. Davis Favors Hon. -E. J. Davis, .of Ontario, spoke favoring union on the grounds that previous unions had been .pronounced successful, and that the present crit- ical conditions all over, Canada called for united action.

QUEEN'S OWN AT LIVERPOOL The Canadian Regiment Was Given an Enthusiastic Reception Liverpool; Arg. steamer Megantic, with the Queen's Own Rifles bard playing the Maple -Leaf Forever and variations, drew along- side the landing stage here at 1-45 this afternoon. The JLord Mayor, the officer commanding district and staff, with General Murray and Captain Clive representing the war office, vere present to welcome the Queen's .Own. The first to come ashore were the Pioneer Squad, followed by Sir Henry Pellatt and his officers. The Deputy Lord Mayor in welcom- ing Sir Henry Pellatt, dwelt on the importance of trade between Liver- pool and Canada. He pointed out with the clause de- the deity of -Christ. It was expressed and might be breed- ing ground for all kinds of Unitarian views. If you let the bars down the ministers and college professors will take advantage of it, not the laymen. He was opposed (because it destroyed the itinerary system. True the sta- tioning committee would meet yearly or at the call of the church. That would mean when there was a church quarrel on. He was opposed Because it would hinder the growth of our evangelistic spirit Rev. J. W. Cooley replied to Dr. Griffin. He said that it was incorrect that there was no guarantee for pro- tection of superannuation claimants the 'union. The new scheme provides revenue from three different sources. All who have been contri- butors or who ma'y become so will be claimants. "We can trust the church to look after its own obligations and there were guarantees that they would. In answer to the criticism that the basis of union had dropped out of -the doctrine of immediate sancti- fication, Rev. Dr. Stewart said that was not correct; you could have it any way you wanted, either gradual or instantly. judge on Legal Aspects interest in the debate took a sudden turn to its legal aspects. Justice Mac- laren, chairman committee on policy, said this was the first oppor- tunity to tell what was in his heart. His sentiments with the union. He 'believed that the scheme they had drawn up was the 'best that could ibe put. "I have come to the conclusion that it is not such a one as I can vote for or recommend anyone else to." The policy basis, he claimed, allows any church that wishes to remain out- side the .union and keep thtir property j with them. And if any considerable number withdrew, i parliament would not pass an act for'union, and if they did, the churches withdrawing could claim a share in connectional pro- perty such as book rooms. He feared trouble, especially in view of the in- cidents in A Strong. Argument For Union W. K.C-, being called for. gave an able and clear exposition of the legal questions involved. He, with from the other churches, had carefully gone into this. Our first step is to apply for an" act of parlia- ment granting the union. The mistake in 'Scotland was Jn arranging the un- ion the- parliamentary act. Church property held toy trustees could come into the union-or just as they please. The number that might not come, in- was not; so. it had been re- GOOD RECORD OE OUR NEW CRIPPEN SAID TO BE GOING INSANE Liverpool, Aug. the bustle incident to the ar- rival of the steamer Megantic today, Dr. Crippen and Ethel Leneve were quickly escorted off the steamer and safely placed in a compartment of the special boat train for 'Lon- don, Crippen was well muffl- ed up and Miss Leneve had a heavy blue veil entwined around her head. It is said that Crippen is going insane. ported, a very high number. Mr. Kowell had attended the missionary congress in Edinburgh. The foreign missionaries there said they are not interested in denominational speeches and if you do not give us union we will have it in spite of you. Rev. Dr. Patton nere asked Mr. Rowell if they did not mean inter- denominational comity and not or- ganized union. Mr. Rowel uaid it was the former, -but only (because 'that -was the best they could do at present. Their idea was organized union. In the afternoon an amendment was brought in by Rev. A. M., Sanford, of Vancouver, instead ui expressing ap- proval of the basis of union, he wanted "cordially receive" and then sent out to the quarterly boards for considera- tion. Mr. Sanford -thought we were not taking the people into our confidence enough. We could arrange the mat- ter and then ask them to approve of it. Some protests were heard over this statement. j Presbyterians Want All Rev. O. Darwin said he wanted to see some of the union on the foreign first. He was glad to hear of pente- costal times at 'the -union committees, but on the field the motto was "what is thine is mine and what is mine is my own." The Presbyterians, he thought, were trying to take every- thing they could get their hands on. Principal followed and concentrated all his energies to a .brief appeal for union. In answer to Mr. Dai-win 'he said: "The longer you stay apart the keener will be the competi- tion. The competition arises from similarity of appeal and interests." Rev.
