Principal Patrick, of Manitoba Col- Winnipeg, one oi the leaders in the movement for the organic union of the Presbyterian, Methodist and Congregational Churches in Canada, was seen last night, before he left for _ his home, by a representative of the obtained hU views on the prospects for the proposed union and the probable procedure in bringing it about. As is well known, Dr. Patrick was in at the very beginning of the movement in its present form.: He riade an address before, the Genera! I Conference of the Methodist Church at Winnipeg as representative of the Presbyterian General and frankly advocated the union of the two Churches. His speech made a profound impression, so much so that 'the General Conference appointed a committee to confer with similar'; com- ni Lttees from other Churches, Once started, the' movement took Jonn arid gathered force, until last week a joint committee representing Canadian Prcsbyterianism, Methodism gregationalism, after four yean investigation and deliberation, upon a of union. Joint Confidant. "Beyond-my most sanguine expecta- said Principal Patrick, in an- swer to a question as to the success of the committee's work. "From the strong, as intelligent, and as repmen-, tative men. as these threef great Churches .contain, union is already consummated. They are one and heart and spirit." Asked ae to the basis of union agreed upon by the committee-and to be reported to the governing bodies oC the three Churches, Dr. Patrick said that it contains a system of Bow can our views be Not. long before he died he attended a Meeting of the union committee at which the'proposed doctrinal state- ment was considered. At the close he rose and bis doubts had disap- peared, that union on such a basis of doctrine would be not only desirable but a great, gain, and that he: would gladly co-operate with his brethren from the. other Churches to make such .a union in.

It is clear, succinct, and in popular form "Personally- I consider it a very great .gain to have' had the creed of the Church revised under such able conditions. A revision would beau called for sooner or later all the Churches, but under no conditions could such adequate prominence ,be given to .rondamental articles and the subsidiary doctrines be given theit_ proper place. For myself, I believe we have accomplish- ed in this way what would have cost the several Churches working separ? ately years of controversy with- kse satisfactory results. The articles of the creed as they now stand in this statement of doctrine are cordially accepted by men of -widely different also for their examination, at the time of licensure and ordination. The creed-subscription in all the Churches is at present rather unsat- isfactory. The unanimous decision of the union committee is for a care- ful private examination of candidates as to .their views on the creed of their Church, affording all needed oppor- tunity ior explanations and -various forms of statement, and then the pub- lic assent would deal with a man's personal relation to Christ, his accept- ance of evangelical doctrine, his mo- tives in entering the ministry, and his loyalty to the Church and its mission. I consider thia solution very much better than what we now have in the Presbyterian Church, As to the intellectual training and equip- ment for service in the ministry there need be no uncertainty." _ Permanent Pastorate Favored. Turning to matters of Church poli- ty, Dr. Patrick said the committee sought for a combination of what is best in the systems of the three Churches, having in view the object of, leaving no congregation without a minister, and no efficient minister EAT, DRINK AND BE MERRY is the order of the; day now for Thanksgiving and the Yuletide, when "good will towards can be shown by furnishing your guests anc friends with such good cheer a Alberta's Pride Beer.

A People's Question Now. Questioned as to the'outlook, Patrick said that the official bodies and. the membership -of the Churches now have the necessary data before them. Hitherto their attitude has been one of expectancy, awaiting the committee's findings.. It now be- comes a question, and re- sponsibility for intelligent actiou will be pressed upon the laymen of the Churches. "Oh, yes, the laymen are interest- said Dr. Patrick with emphasis. "Their splendid co-operation in the missionary movement has prepared th.e'way, and now they will take an interest in preventing all unneces- sary overlapping and all waste of men and -means in maintaining two or three churches where one would serve. And the young men are in- terested, for the prospect, of an ade- quate field for their life work will make the ministry more: attractive. V The West Tor Union.

"No, the question of a name was not seriously discussed. My own opinion is that this should be left open until the very day of union, adopted after the union has been effecieu. Names are suggested and will be presented for the widest con- sideration. Speaking from memory I may mention United Church in 'The United Re- formed Church in 'The Unit- ed Church in 'The United Church: Congregational- Methodiet-Presbyterian.' The name for the Church, like the names for its various courts, is not a vital ques- tion. It is important, but not of first Stopa Yet to be Taken. The next step in the union proce- dure, Principal Patrick explained, will-be the reporting of this btsis of to-the supremo courts of the Churches. "It reported to the General Assembly in Hamilton in June_next, and the Assembly will be asked to approve of the commit- tee's work and to take the necessary confidence that union will be by an overwhelming majority. Min- isters and laymen alike-, are favorable and are eager. It is a great move- added the principal, survey- ing the whole theme. "It's greatness and its significance grow upon one. Not since Confederation has any movement of equal magnitude and importance commanded the consid- eration of the people of Canada. Fdr national and for religious reasons I support it. For the sake of the evan- gelistic and missionary work pressing i the Churches union is most de- sirable. The outcome would be a richer type of character and a more effective service to the truth and righteousness, of the Christian world are upon this movement in Canada. Other unions would follow in Australia, in" South Africa, and elsewhere within anc without the British Empire. "As a Presbyterian 1 feel bound to stand for union with all other Christ- ians unless compelled by conscience to remain apart. Such compulsion of conscience cannot be, in view of the findings of the union ocrnmittee. As a consistent Presbyterian 1 regard union as a duty binding on my con- science.
