a compeller of fear of pun ishment and many a church member and minister still thinks that is its chief function Religion is a terror to tlio evil doer although the influence of fear wanes as character is debased and the criminal becomes a ambler Rob ert Burns said: The fear o' bell's a whip To hand Hie wretch in order Unfortunately the more a man is a wretch the less fear he has for remote and unseen consequences It is an entirely different inhibitory function of religion that is here to be emphasized Religion as friendship is the genial sun which makes the ob durate willing to remove the cloak when the harsh and biting blasts of winter have made him draw its folds more tightly about him When the forgiving Christ is lifted up lie draws all men unto himself Religion taking on the form of incarnate friendship in piison in hospital in mine in factory and warehouse gradually makes men immune to temptation Out of the depths nf an English jail a gifted but wicked poet uttered a

theirs Then emperor employes When most of the businese of the country is under the control of huge corporations and these corpora tions have Christianized directors the progress of religion will be much more rapid and effective But all which depends on the per sonal good will of employers smacks of charity and is insecure Wage earners have a sound and rat'onal dis trust of personal favors requent experiences of deception have taught them suspicion So long as their in terests are at tne mercy of personal benevolence they are in hazard Thera is no positive guaranty of justice ex cept in law This explains the world wide movement of age earners to ex tend the franchise to gain political power and representation by men of their own group and social legislation Therefore while religious men should do all they can as individual managers they must see that in this vay they cannot go far A generous president of a corporation may be suc ceeded by a skinflint a cynical brute urthermore unless a policy of justice Is embodied in law it cannot be made universal and the advantage in com petition goes to the miser who hunts men as with a net Those who sin cerely desire to see their noble ideals made practical and effective must help to have them made over into law This was the doctrine to which Em peror William I of Germany made ap peal when with the iron aid he asked the imperial Parliament to enter upon its wonderful policy of protecting the interests of workingmen by law and so set an example for all the governments of the world There is great anxiety about respect for law In this country and all of us are alarmed at the signs of contempt hatred and Insolence with which courts are sometimes treated by crowds of strikers But have we duly considered the fact that hundreds of thousands of poor men have never found mu In law which aroused respect or kindled devotion In youth the law said "keep off the "move "don't play in the The policeman wa i the natural enemy of the gang and spoiled all their joys The city councl made countless regulations restrictive of agreeable activities but never pro vided rooms or means of enjoyment Tile government cleaned the avenues and left the back streets filthy If a poor man went to court witli a rich man in defense of a claim he lost it by a technicality or paid half of the award to a lawyer Such experiences brood ed over and discussed by workingmen transform honest toilers into rebels Numerous other examples could be given of the negative and repressive aspect of government in the eyes of the industrials To overcome this prej udice we must educate our young peo ple to realize what government al ready does for them which they uver Ico*k and we must make law and government the expression of a re ligious and moral purpose to do justice and promote mercy The preaching of individual kindness and justice is desirable but in view cf the facts of modern industrial and municipal life it seems petty and falls short of complete justice it is in tlii field of law that we must incorporate our worship of the Savior of mankind When the multitudes have become accustomed to see tho government eager and active in protecting thcu from accident and disease in bringingiustico to them without attorneys' fen and prohibitive costs in organizing in surance for them against the hours calamity and the weakness of old age in securing pensions for declining years and education for their children suited to their needs then patriotism will become instinctive and universal And when they see that religious men have valiantly and patiently uniteel with them to make justice legal and sure thev will be more inclined to rev erence the church In such a universal atmosphere of patriotism and reverence we shall hearess
