UNANIMOUS IN THEIR

"Believed Almost Every
thing He Said, and Be

' t nQirmt, -.4- fill i,4,-..f
UUlllllUll Ul WU V I011UI3.
By HEV. DR., S. EDWARD YOUNG
t'ontor of tho Dcdfonl I'rcnhytorlan Cliurch,
Nostranj avenui ami Donn trt, Drcioklyn,
clinlrmin of the 20(1 Nvw York clly nrfocln-rs
who visited the Sunday mectlngn In Phila
delphia. The New York preachers capitulated to
"Billy" Sunday. They believed almost
everything he snld, and they believed him
absolutely. On tho return trip they voted,
each tralnload separately, unanimously to
make all possible effort to bring him to
Landing In Philadelphia was like visit
ing a national political convention, only
reservations ahead nnd special street cars
counted; but the atmosphere was unllko
that of the mighty party assemblages.
Wo found everybody In Philadelphia
ready to talk religion.
The whole city is under tho spell. A
number of our ministers were averse to
Sunday und his methods until they sat
in tho tabernacle All are with him now,
heart nnd soul. What a testimony this is!
Preachers are trained to tho serious duty
of discriminating and forming Individual
opinions and contending for these against
all comers. The responsibility of so doing
is Impiessed upon ministers by their en
tire courso of education nnd experience.
Just try any single proposition on a largo
group of clergymen of various denomina
tions, such ns went from New York to
hear "Billy" Sunday! Thoy will divide
oft (jnd belabor ono another courteously
and llrmly with nrguments. Not so In
this particular Instance.
CAN'T BE DOUBTED TEN MINUTES.
I confess to a strange feeling of tfio
presence of a higher than human power
In thlH breaking down of prejudice before
this God-guided man. He Is too tre:
mendously In earnest, too fenrless, too
true to conscience nnd the supreme veri
ties of tho Gospel, too full of wholesome
humor and swoetness of soul, to be
doubted for 10 minutes at a stretch. One
feature we noticed Immediately the pon
derous machinery of a revlvnl little In
evidence those wearlBome icports and
fulsome acknowledgements of tho chair
man of the Committee on Arrangements,
Commute on House-to-House Canvass,
Committee on Politeness to Strangers.
Committee on Taking Off Women's Hats,
Committee on Smiles and Umbrellas, and
so forth and so forth.
'Bllly" Sunday Is the whole show, with
some visible staff-otllcerlng by Rode
heaver and "Ma" Sunday. This Is as it
should be. The hour you undertaka to
recognize publicly and Individually all
thoso who have helped to make the meet
ing a success, you arc sure to consume a
vast amount of time, bore tho people, and
Incidentally convoy the Idea that tho
workers nro -working for earthly glory.
What Phillips Brooks remarked Jf Moody
might appropriately be said of "Billy
Sunday, "That which Impresses me In
Moody Is his amazing common sense.
Wo thankfully missed tho smack of
sanctimoniousness bo gonorally charac
teristic of a revival service the super
mundane tone of voice, tho "holier-than-thou"
vocabulary, the long-drawn prayers
and pious, though now nearly meaning
leas, phrases that did good work In other
days when they were coined In tho heat
of some spiritual movement. There Is
throughout the enormous concourse of
auditors, tho confident spirit of those who
have triumphed over criticism and aro
certain of winning out.
If at first you are offended by the ex
altation of "Billy." you let this merge
Into his exaltation of Christ. The preach
b did not observe much slang or extrava
gant speech. To be exact, Sunday has
less of these than on former occasions.
This dropping out of colloquialisms and
slangy phrases characterises, I under
stand, the progress of his campaign In
each city. He reaches a point where no
further attracting of attention Is needed.
He then lets go the simple, solemn,
righteous thunder of his soul. JW lets
God 'speak through him- We become
conscious of the heavenly cooperation,
After all, "Billy" Sunday's theological
vlowpolnt Is about that of the average
evangelical preacher In America. Not e.
very considerable proportion of tho min
isters of tho principal Protestant denomi
nations preach the conclusions of the
most liberal-minded scholars of Europe
and America.. Whether this s 111 or well
for tha cause, It is ft fact. . Possibly there
Is something In broad, scientific theolo
gical study that cools the ardor of preach
ing. At any rate, men who are flaming
fires In the hnd of God are apt to be
orthodox, as that term 1 used today In
Beyond question, pastors and laymen
and Jaywomei) In tfw York will keep urg

CONGREGATION TO MOVE

to Change Quarters.
The congregation of tho First Baptist
Church of Germantown has made ar
rangements to move from the present
church, on Price street east of Germnn
town avenue, where it has worshiped for
62 years, to a new site situated between
tho Wayne Avenue Baptist Church and
the Second Baptist Church of German
town. Tho board of trustees will build a more
modern edifice as soon as the Halo Is ef
fected. A Negro Methodist Episcopal con
gregation, of which the Itev. J. T, Flet
cher Is pastor, Is said to be the pios
pectlvo purchaser of tho old property.
The First Baptist Church, of which the
nev. Dr. Thomas S. Hamson Is now pas
tor, was organized In February, 1852, at
Fellowship Hall, on Armnt street. In
November of the same year It moved to
the pretent Rite. Its membership during
the first year incicased from SO to 1C0.
Nearly 400 members are enrolled now. Its
membership was foimerly much larger,
but the establishment of other Baptist
churches In the community caused sev

three main principles involved in "bringing up boys," namely, prayer, pre

He is u staunch und entlius'astlc support
er of the Hoy Scouts, nnd Is known to
virtually every Hoy Scout In Gcrninntown.
The attention of tho minister was first
attracted to the movement In 1910, when
Director of Public Safety George D. Por

nnd attends meetings nnd nccom
panies tho troop on hikes, although tlio
details of tho woik are under tho super
vision of Scoutmaster Stewart.
"During the 20 years I Iiuvo spent
among boys I have found no other move
ment which creates Rtieh Interest nnd
holds the boys together ns does the
Boy Scout movement," he said. "It
