Before I furthec.trespass Into this difficult problem X would like to, remind my Christian friends that I am not writing on behalf of the Salvation Army, which I am proud to belong to, or any other party, but my own personal convicRons. I notice In my friend's letter in Thursday'.s Herald any amount of intdrmatlon imported from Ills friends In ' America. He has been a busy man these last few weeks compiling such an abundance of evidence on this question. 'As a British Canadiai) subject I desire^ first to express my Admiration to my; Saxon brothers across the Jlne for the ' noble part they have, done bpUi in men and finance in this gigantic^truggle for liberty just concluded; again I sayj h^il .polumbia. But in comingto the moral situation, as a natiotf America is no example for us to'follow^,if I believe all I read. There ig slh ,*ind wickedness which God detestjias'iriucji-as sociUil vice;'.which J.is Yen? ri^m-pant in that great nation; siich'as;divorce and defilement of the Sabbath day. In regard ^to-m'yj friend,God's teWbutlott'Ipr^the^jsiHifof aociial vices i. fully, >ellfv4 thp Diyine judgmp;it follows .the steps of the sin of. uncliag-tity either of Individuals or nations^ I am fully aware in the ol^ times i; of God's dispensation law was the fjjU penalty for all sins committed byr tjie nations of old; but God in Hig w(ge; and loving way, prepared a, A^ay .oifi hope and'irefuge through.the'ss(cri^c|� of His beloved Son "Jesus'- Cbiiist lofl' the cross for sins of uncleanness; fpir, all, even the ^despised Mary. Magd^-: lene. As my friend was very tearlesf In his denunciation of the prostitute^ what ^lutlon has ever been., tried td bring about a better state of affairs in this city by the so-called Christian churcAes. With your .permission. Mil.' Editor. I will give for the benefit..* my friend one brief record of the Sat ration Arthy Rescue work. In tbe Old. Country for jSne yeaV; Over tWo thops-aioid yiouSf wbnien and girls were rescued.4rotna^lfe-of shame, and placed into homes. How nobler was the actions of these rescue officers in bringing these fallen outcasts^to.live a better and purer life. Wbat the law-fails to do there, the compassion of our Divine mas^ter brought giadness. atid joy to these human -wrecks. In coming to the question of venereal, disease I will quote the words of our present Mrs. General Booth, the founder of the Army Rescue work; thai words are: "I am most anxiouf tha. there should be provided for M whe suffer from these maladies Whether that suffering be as a resulV of tbfiTr own misconduct or, as it often is quite without any responsibility on their part; should be able to obtain tr^At? nient, immediate and without copt ^tqi themselves. Surely this can be � 4*' tempted. If our hands, were pot po full 1 would .embark upon an experimental undertaking^ �f this kind myself. The provision and >yorklng of fi hospital of this character under Sa^lr vation Army management U^s. Hieen for many years one of my schemes, but for financial reasons I aqr sorr^ to say can not be iindertalcen. Oh that there were more money, available f^ the saving and healing of bodies as well-as souls;" So I will leave thes^e valuable words of Mrs. Booth without further comment from me. In bringing, my letter to a close''l defire to leave the following two .verse* which are very appiioiprlate to many.so"-cail-ed Christian br6thers. A word ^iti\ tbep, Sir Phafisee, " A word lylth thee albne, ' Thou of the virtuous counte;$lMice'' ', Who huHest swift tbe stope,".
