This is the way'Rev. Dr. Rose de- scribed the condition of people liv- ing in the lower grades of society, is his sermon in Sherbourne Street Methodist Church. Dr. Rose was dis- cussing the question of the Chur-ch't relation to the world, and he had number of very plain opinions to ex- press regarding the Church's short- comings. "The Church has always 'been too" he declared. "It was meant to be a-leading power, instead of which it too often follows. By .its treatment of Galilio, the great as- tronomer, it lost its leaders-hip in science it is fast losing its leader- ship in scholarship and its ability to defend this laying his hand on the Bible, "and now social reform is knocking at its. door, asking it -to come forth and lead-it. But it has always been fearful, instead of hems brave. It. is because of this timidity; that the Salvation Army is '-doing the work to-day which the Methodist Church should be doing. What Church is For "But, the continued the speaker, "which was called into be- ing to oppose the world, has too oft- en allied itself with those-very influ- ences which it should combat. Of Christ it was said, that 'The com- mon people heard Him gladly i' Somo- timcs it looks as if the Church want the common people. It is too often the slave of the rich. There is nothing better to be seen than rich men and women devotinR their means to the uses of the Church, but the Church loses its pow- er when it allows the rieh to fasten themselves upon it, and make them- selves necessary for its welfare." Speaking of the Church's attitude. to social reform, Dr. Rose declared that it was like offering a drowning sailor a tract. "Or like a band of workers going through the slums with illuminated banners hearing the leg- end 'God is while poor wretch- es are trodden down into the mire and mud, starving to death... You cannot frighten these poor people with threats of hell, for they are there concluded the Doctor. emphatically. "What they need first is a little food to cat, and some land to till, then offer them religion." Washington, Dec. contro- FIRE IN BOX CAR Recrina.
