METHODIST ESTIMATE OF BROTHERHOOD

Quite a commotion has been caused in Methodist circles lately by the published statement that „The Methodist Book Concern” of New York has a Roman Catholic foreman over its Composing Room another is assistant foreman in the Press Room, and another is foreman of the Bible publishing department. These, it seems, are gradually discharging Protestants and supplying their places with Roman Catholics. Rev. Dr. Mains, one of the managers of the Concern, explaining away the matter, said (as reported by the Boston Herald) that his foreman „was probably a Catholic. He had called him ‚Brother’ Cassidy many years without knowing or caring what his religion was.” Christian brotherhood has become very cheap when given without knowledge or care as to whether the recipient even professes to follow Christ or Anti-Christ;—and that by a prominent exponent of Christian brotherhood.

The Philadelphia Record says that the news from the financial centers of Europe is to the effect that moneylenders „are willing to lend Turkey five times as much money as Greece, at one-half the interest.” Sentiment weighs in the pulpit, the platform and the press, but goes for naught in the financial affairs of the world—great and small. There cold selfishness controls.

„I tell you,” said a rabid Free-thinker, „the idea that there is a God never comes into my head.” „Ah, precisely like my dog,” was the reply. „But there is this difference—he does not go round howling about it.”—Selected.
