The foundations for the building of a city must be laid, the centre of the city must be brought to a proper standard first, the central property pays the bulk of the taxes anil should have their share oi what they pay.

The evangelist said, many of the ministers of the present day were "fudge eating mollycoddles, who are continually springing bum bullcon to their congregations." He asserted that few ministers of today are any- thing but salary quacks, will- ing to accept social distinction, and that many of them are qualified can- lidates for the "funny" house.
