"That the present economic system in revealed as one of the roots of the war. The insane pride of Gorniany, her passion tor world domination, found an occasioa In the demand for colonies as markets and sources ot faw materials. The war has made more clearly manifest tho moral perils inherent in the system for production tor profits. The whole system calla for a change. "The war ia the coronation of democracy. Ab the last century liad democratized politics, the present century has shown that political democracy means little without economic democracy. Under the shock of war the accomplished commercial method hased on individualism and commercialism has gone down like mud walls in a flood.^ "Witli the earthquake shocks of war thundering ho tremendousi/ a re-affirmation of the principle of .lesus, it would be tho most inexcusable dereliction of duty on the part ot the churcliMiot to re-state her program in modern terms and re-define her deflu. itely appointed goal. The triumph of'democracy, the demand of the educated workers for human conditions of life, the deep condemnation this war lias passed on the competitive struggle, the- revelation of the super-efficloncy ot rational organization demands nothing less than a transference ot the whole economic life from a has-Is of competition and ,profits to one of co-oporatlon and service. "That another system is practical is shown by the recent statement of the British prime minister that evel'y industry except one in Britain has been made to sor^^e the national interest by the elimination of tho incentive of private industry. We too look to the government to enlist in the service of the nation those great lenders and corporations which have shown magnificent capacity in the o'rganlza-tion of life and resources for the profit of shareholders. "Tlio acceptance ot this report, it cannot too clearly be recognized, commits this church, as far as tliis representative body can do so, to nothing less than a social revolution. Hecog-nizing the greatness and complicity of the task before the Christian people of Canada, we recommend that the suggestion ot the memorial from the Alberta conference be adopted and tiie general conferences invite the other churches of Canada to a national conrj vocation for the consideration of tHe problems of re-construction." There was a spirited debate on this memorial, but the consensus of opinion was that the church, must point IIHODISTS ME iSlNS B6AR0 Hamilton, Ont., Oct. 17.-Elections to the general board of missions occupied tho lime of the Methodist conference yesterday afternoon, the following appointments being made': Rev.
