Church Union In the matter of church union, the speaker declared it was a lively issue yet. It had lived than many of them at first thought it would. For 14 years the Methodist church has assumed an attitude of couciiiatiou, but the union has not advanced very far yet. He did not thiuk the Metho- dist church in -Canada had anything :o regret in its attitude iu these years. He deplored the suggestion that or- ganic union might be effected in the west and let the east struggle along as it might. He was against split- ting the east ana west, -it the Pres- byterian General Assembly at its next meeting commits itself to organ- ic union over a number of years, we wiU be glad; but if not, we must clar- ify our vision and go forth to carry out our ideals." Speaking of the work among the foreign speaking peoples of Canada, especially those in the northern parts of Saskatchewan, the speaker deplor-. ed the efforts being made by some of the foreign elements in some districts to establish schools, many of them under direct influences of various churches. This has a ten- dency to destroy the unity of the peo- ple of the west. It is a very danger- ous tendency and one that must be attacked with vigor if the west is 10 grow up with a united front to all :he problems of citizenship which will face her in the next generation. War and Religion ''The war and, religion" was very carefully dealt with by Rev. Van Til ton who dealt witli war as it has affected civilization from earliest .history. He said that while war In general was not compatible with Christian prin- ciples there are some principles of humanity that must be safeguarded even by the sword, and German mili- tarism and German Kultur were at- tacking those principles 'must therefore be combatted. -v'; Demands of the Pulpit On Thursday afternoon- at five o'clock the Theological Union of the Methodist Conference, had .charge of the session, Rev. A. S. Tattle., of Med- icine Kat, chairman of the union, pre- siding. Officers for the coming year were elected, Rev. J. Coulter of Ed- monton, last year's secretary was el- ected president; Rev. A. H..Rowe was elected secretary and Rev, J.- P.- Berry Olds, lecturer for the year. Rev. J. W- Wilkin, of Ponoka, lec- turer for the past year, delivered an address on "The Demands of the Modern Pulpit." In his address the speaker sought to show the drift of modern thought and in application, the effort the man in the pulpit should make to meet this thought in the minds of his congregation. The present, he declared, is a troublous time. People are thinking. They are looking for solutions of the spiritual problems which confront them. If they dp. .not. find solutions j Cross, patriotic or mission funds, they are inclined to-become agnostics and agnosticism is one of the evils movement for missions, of the Meth- odist church, at the first public ses- sion of the Alberta conference held last night in Wesley church. Christianity Not Failure Christianity was! not a failure be- cause of this war, as so many people were pessimistically inclined to think. The Germans were righting in spite of Christianity but the Allies were fighting because of it, declared Rev. Mr. Manning. Both he and Dr. Steph- enson emphasized the statement, that now, this very hour, while the great- est conflict the world has'ever seen, was raging, was the very, hottest moment to strike for missions, the very time when alt possible effort ihould be put forth to extending the work of missions in foreign lands. Rev. Mr. Manning's address, in spite of a husky voice due to a cold, was forceful, and listened to with close attention.. W. G. Hunt, oC-Cal- ;ary, presided at last night's session and the choir under direction of Mr. Claude led the music and rendered an antjiem. Rev. Air. Manning 'made a stirring appeal for missions, pointing out. with great forcefulness from the out- set the difficulties facing missionar- ies in their-'grea't" work of changing the mental attitude, of the heathen world towards' Christianity. He said the responsibility, of the present gen eration wasv great, even more so in view of the great war which had re- sulted frojn' a heathen conception o the rights of humanity. Rev. Mr. Manning pointed out tha1 Cliis very War provided a reason for still more aggressive work on- behai of missions. If it were not for 'the hope of extending the gospel to al parts of the world, he said, this war would be nothing compared to-future wars which would result. He In stanced the great strength of China and other Oriental empires and drew a picture of what might happen if these great Oriental empires were to unite against the Christian nations China alone could raise an army of 60 million men without interfering with the progress of industry and- -com- merce of the country- But the gospel was rapidly being extended to these countries and their mental attitude was changing. Need Greater Effort But there was great.need" effort. The war should not be a rea- son for slackening of .mission work, rather the contrary. -Mr. Manning stanced what had been done -by the United States Methodist church dur- ing the civil war in extending mis- reference to the work of the earlier ministers in the Methodist church in Canada, men who were not loth to take up work in out-of-the-way places where others might no care to go, and spoke with particular reference to the work of Rev. Wm. Buchanan, who uever hesitated to go to any place where the good work of the" church could be furthered. New President of Conference "Boru to the is the claim that can be made by Hev. Geo. G. Webber, the new president of the Alberta Methodist Conference. Rev. Mr. Webber made mention of the coincidence yesterday in accept- ing the chair. He said two previous presidents of the conference had been born in the parsonage, but he could claim tha unique distinction of having been born in the year in which his fathei- was president of an eastern conference. He was named after his father, and the latter'a hope that'his son would follow iu his footsteps was by way of being fulfilled. The new president's father, the Rev. George Webber, was for years a mem- tfer of. the Toronto conference, and in Toronto the son was born, when Mr, Webber, senior, was pastor of the old Agnes Street Church and presi- dent oC the Canadian Bible Christian Warner, June heavy rains of the past few days or weeks show no sign of letting up, and farmers in tliis district are feeling confident that their labors will be again rewarded.

Dr. Stophensoh, founder and leader-of the yousB people's forward j Dr. Stephenion Dr. Stephenson, founder of the young people's forward movement, is one of the outstanding figures of the Methodist church in Canada. The dynamic force of his strong person- ality is dominant everywhere, and it dominated the audience.in a remark- able way during Ms address last night. His dramatic style and effective hum- or brought home the points of his ad- dress in no uncertain way to the aud- ience. He, too, pointed out the great nec- essity of further effort in mission work. He Instanced the work-done by the Wesleyan church in England, which was ahead of anything It had ever done before, and this in war Or. Stephenion followed this up with strong appeal for lelf-sacriflce for the sake of the rotation! of the church and other good causei. Tie Appealed to the church to get down to business on the mission question. Now was the opportune time, the need tor mlSBlon work was greater at the present time than ever before. Dr. Stephenson also pointed out that the vast numbers of young men who were coming home from the war, came home with a different at- titude towards life, with a greater realization of the unselfish spirit, and the people of the church should take the opportunity of utilizing this, spirit this changed attitude, among the young men, to make H a .force for good, to see that.it was properly dir- ected.
