The Rev. Arthur C. Baldwin, of the
ObMtniit Street Baptist Church be
ii,. that no order should be nllewed
te xUt which tends te create racial
tad religious hatreds.
"I have positively no urc for the
Kn Klux Klnn," said Dr. Baldwin.
"Hellgieus Intolerance, te me, is the
worst form of heresy. There Is no room
for an order wiucn creates reiiRieus
prejudice. I respect my brethren

Klan Coin Net Wanted
"I would net, knowingly, nllew n
member of the Klnn te enter my
church, and I would net accept money
offered my church by them."
That the Klnnsmen might profit mere
ty listening te religious preaching Is
the view ndvnnced by Bishop Nwly,
ef the Methodist l.plscepal Church.
The Kpv. Edwin Hejl Pclk. pastor
of St. Mnthcw'n Lutheran Church, snld :
"The tneniberfl of the Ku Klux Klnn
are obnexints, un-American nnd un
CbrWian men te nsstime the nttituda
they de in this ngp of enlightenment.
Any preacher or l.ijnwn who PTpresses
svmpithy In the Klnn cause is be
Blghtcd." Tli" Khn in partly an outgrowth of
the unsettled condition and mentnl nt
titud" fellow ins the war, according te
the Ilcv. ,T. A. MncCnllum. paMer of
the Kirfit I'resbvtprlnn Church, at Thirty-ninth
nnd Walnut streets.
"Tlie Ku Klux Klnn 1h net se Im
portant In Itself, but in the fnct thnt
it Is n symptom of the lawlessness which
rwiiled In the region where It wns
met actively ergnnlred," he said.
"The order Itself was a result of the
reaction following the war. It Is nar
row -minded, ignorant nnd cowardly,
hut tint does net Justify our becom
ing lnsteiic.il about it. Wc cannot nf nf
ferl te muke martyrs of the Klans
tten, Ixit Ijiw Take Its Course
"I.tt Individuals be punished, nfter
due process of lnw, for any crimes
they commit, but let us net yield te
the trinptntlen te use illegal methods In
our efforts te suppress the Klan.
"In the end the courts of justice are
nerer furthered by injustice.
"The seed of death is In the Klan's
doctrines, and it been will be a spent
veire.' '
The Rev. Luther De Tee. Trinity
Lutheran Church, Gcrmnntewn nvenue
ind Queen Inne, said : "I leek upon
this Ku Klux Klan bb n national
nuisance. I am net able te determine
that It hns any useful purpose, nnd
'ten if there wns geed In it, It would
j a very wrong thing In Amerlcnn
life beenuse of Its professed secret
netheds. It Is inconsistent with all the
fair practice of this Natien.
"It Is absolutely beyond my compre
hension that a minister of any denoml deneml denoml
nitlen could nllew a member of that
organization te stand in his pulpit,
aucb. less while drcBcd in the robes
f the orgmlatlen. I should net allow
one te ceme Inte the church. Their
organization hns no place In Chris
tianity, nnd it Eeems incencelvnble thnt
people interested In Christianity could
ke such a part. Their organization
nas never been recognized by this
church, nnd no one with us is in
yapathy with It."
United In Opposition
Dr. I)c Tee wns asked 'what he would
Je If a member of the Klan npprenchpd
Jilm quietly and with n statement thnt
jee work he was doing wns fine, at
t'njpted te present him with a sum of
money or ether gift for the church.
I would tell him," he replied, "that
: ua.r luemy ei money ana would
'nvlte him te take it elsewhere."
The Hev. Willlnm Barnes Lewer,
rmer of Hely Trinity Presbyterian
j-nurcb. Eleventh nnd Hecklnnd streets,
l: I knew something about this
ft Mux orgnnlzntlen, and fiem what
J nave been nblc te learn I considered
'.' gresslj nnd fundamentally wrong.
Among n free-thinking people like our
must be enreful of secret orgnnln ergnnln
110ns of this chnrncter. It must he
rindleil cautiously. Nothing should he

"It In working through Intimidation,

accomplished by tyranny never justlfv

Qupstif.ned upon Ku Kluckcrs going

"They wouldn't get into my church,

Frem Solicitor
Mayer Moero yesterday signed the
Benus Bill for city empleyes. The
Mayer had referred the entire ordinance
te the City Solicitor for an opinion as
te the legality of the city paying bo
nuses te empleyes whose salaries are
fixed by the Legislature.
Councilman Devclin raised thntquee thntquee
tien at the time the ordinance was up
in Council. City Solicitor Smyth told
the Mayer he would hnve either te ap
prove or veto the entire ordinance. A
ee, the City Solicitor said, would work
0 disadvantage te empleyes whose snl
aries were fixed by the city, many of
whom were receiving low salaries. The
Solicitor pointed out that anybody
doubting the validity of the bill could
take recourse te the courts.

Btprlntfi! from Ptihllc I.edcer
Londen, Dec. 14. The re-enforced
Laber delegation in the Commens is
showing n determination te make un
employment the paramount domestic
issue. The Government, having failed
te redeem its campaign premises of
"special steps te deal with unemploy
ment" plans the prorogation of Parlia
ment tomorrow for eight weeks. The
Lnberites, who wanted a chance te urge
their policy of "work or maintenance,"
are answering the Government's move
by resorting te filibustering tactics
which kept the Heuse in session until
7 o'clock yesterday morning and led te
several stormy sevnes mere characteris
tic of the Italian Chamber of Deputies
than Westminster.
"If there is no solution let us tell
the unemployed they must starve un
less they are strong enough te pull so
ciety down nnd put something In its
place." shouted one Lnberlte.
"Walt until your hour comes!" cried
n Communist member te occupants of
the Treasury bench.
During the evening pelice In the lob leb
hies had 0 strenuous few minutes eject
ing some of the unemployed who gnlned
ndmlssien in small groups nnd began
the circulation of communistic pam
phlets flashing of Inflammatory pla
cards and singing the "Red Flag." The
efforts te embarrass the Government
were renewed yesterday. Premier Benar
Law was heckled when be replied te a
question regarding unemployment, the
Speaker with difficulty enforcing order.
