Century Movement Presbyterian
Church Must Be Closer United, He
Said, nnd the Small Colleges Must
Be Piovlded for.
Uev. Dr. Henry C. Mlnton, of San
Francisco, moderator or the Presby
terian general assembly, and conse
quently one of tho most widely known
Piotestnnt clergymen In tho United
States, was In this city yesterday, and
addressed three large congregations In
as many churches on the twentieth
century movement In the i'rcsbyteiian
Dr. Minion Is a comparatively young
man, being considerably this side ot
fifty, but lie occupies a position which
Is the highest honor In tho gift of his
denomination. Uc Is professor ot the
ology In the San Francisco Theological
seminary and tho chairman of the com
mittee on tho revision of the Presby
terian creed. Kloqttent and forceful
preacher that ho Is, ho made a deep im
pression on the congregations which
heard him speak yesterday.
In tho morning he spoke In the First
Presbyterian church. At -i o'clock in
the afternoon lie uddrossed a gathering
in tho Providence Presbyterian church,
while la'st night ho spoke in the Green
ltldgo Presbyterian chuich. Ills night
sermon was, In part, ns follows:
"In the advance of tho nineteenth
century, the Presbyterian church played
no unlniportnnt part. The Presbyterian
church occupies her own peculiar niche
In tho sisterhood of churches and is
destined to do a particular kind ot
work, a woik which would remain
largely undone were she suddenly wiped
out of existence. The Presbyterian
church has tier own vital truth to stand
for and on the threshold of the twenti
eth century let us consider for a little
the Christian tasks which lie befoie
"I propose to consider this question
in a threefold way and I desire to speak
first upon assimilation, the necessity of
a closer unity in our church life. The
Presbyterian church is becoming a
great ohurcli. Some churches measure
their greatness by counting, but we
Presbyterians always measure ours by
weighing. And still wo rue large In
numbers, with over l.L'SO.OOO members.
"There aro manv ties that bind us
together as a church, and peihaps the
greatest is the lie of doctrine. The
great truths for which tho Presbyterian
church stands bind all her members
into an organic unity, no matter how
vastly divergent may be their ancestry,
their education or their social position
in the community. The doctrine of the
Presbyterian church doesn't chaneo
every two or three years. Mire doesn't"
hunt alter new things, but Is loyal to
the truth as she understands the truth.
She occupies a safe middle giound be
tween I.oman Catholicism on the one
hand and Vnitailanism on the other:
between Roman Catholicism exalting
the Pope of Homo as Christ's vicar on
earth, placing him equal in authority
to the Rible and rnituii.inism denying
the 13iblo to be the inspired word of.
"Standing between these, two ex
tremes Preshyterinnism places her
hand upon the Bible and declares it
to be the great and only guide for
man's life hero below. The fundamen
tal note of Presbyterian doctrine is
the Idea of tiod as a Sovereign Uelng,
sovereign not alone In power, but sov
ereign in wisdom, sovereign in love
and sovereign in mercy. Presbytoiian
ifcm writes God over nil history; writes
God over the skies, writes God over
time. On tills fundamental fact of an
all-sovereign God the Presbyterian
church is built.
"Another bond that binds the church
together Is the bond of church govern

ment. All the church h one. If one
tlnirch suffers the wliole church feels
It. Hero again we stand on a clinrnicd
middle ground between ecclesiastic
democracy or Congregitilonultiin nnd
ecclesiastic monarchy or ltomnu Cutho
tlclsm. Wo have nit tho liberty of the
nno and all the stability ot the other,
minus the vices of both, Another bond
binding us close together Is our foini
or worship which Is tho same In every
part of tho world and where again
wo occupy a middle ground between
tho millinery of ritualism mid un
checked devotloiinllsm.
"The second problem which wo find
confronting us Is the problem of edu
cation and this problem Intitules the
wliole question of the college as against
the university. The American people
are becoming university Intoxicated
and to my mind tho greatest educa
tional heresy of tho time Is the sub
f'lltutlon of tho university for the col
lego. Professor Utitlor, tho now presi
dent of Columbia, recently said that
what this country needs most Is broad
men sharpened to n point. Tho situa
tion could not have boon better sum
med up, AVe want men to bj broad
ened first In tho college before they
undergo the sharpening process of the
unlveislty. If you sharpen a man who
Isn't broad you have very lltllo loft.
The college develoiis the man and
that's what wo want to develop.
"Ileal education Is not simply tho
acquirement of a lot of technical
knowledge or book-lore. Education
Is tho ennobling and enkindling Influ
ence of a grent and good teacher. You
lemember what Garfield said. He w.ts
a graduate of "Williams' college In tho
palmy days of the celebrated Mark
Hopkins!. 'Education,' said he, is
Mark Hopkins sawing wood on olio
end of a log nnd mo on tho other end.'
In tho great universities Mark Uop
plns nnd the log have got separated.
Tho log has, got longer and Is filled
with tutors land instructors so that

that the training of the mind and the
neglect of the character is the training
of traitors. I plead for Christian

' The third great problem confronting
the church i nm ufi-ald of
the kopticl! m that is manifesting it
self among many of our Christians. A
skepticism which believes the salvation
of man and the redemption of the
world to be to great a tusk for the
incarnate God. 1 believe that if it is
too hard for God to save one soul that
no oul can be saved. Is not tho Loid
Christ inlliiite'.' Oh, brethren, the sin
of all sins is the measuring of infinity
and the doubting of God's power to
save unto the utteiinost.
"The twentieth century movement is
intended to stimulate the church to a
higher and broader platform of loyalty
and libel ty in the doing of God's work
and to a realization of the fact that
she must care for her own Institutions

Had Its Own Trouble Saturday
with tho ' Immense Amount of
Snow That Covered the City
Streets Two Buildings Collapsed.
There Is every promise ot a Hood such
as has never before been witnessed In
this part of tho state. Weatherman
Clarke received a warning telegram on
Saturday and svesteidiiy at 11 o'clock
funic another one, reudlng us follows:
Ohsetver, b'cratitoll, l'a.
Warmer weather indlculiil for nest two ilayn
with conditions fnvmahlc for lain bv Mnnday

for .1 bro.iKlnir up of Ice In the iiioinitilii

Maijland nnd West Viigliil.i. Notify all Interests
loncerneil (hat danger fiom Hoods In low- Ijliu
lands Is Imminent.
The weatherman himself tuedlets a
rainstorm for this afternoon or tonight,
hut tills prediction is based on data
procured no later than.Filday nlghl.
Should futch a rainstorm come, coupled
with the Wanner weather which Is
promised, the snow on the mountain
sides and everywhere else will be rap
Idly melted, and the Lackawanna river
and Roaring Drool: will become swollen
to great pi oport Ions. '
"J should warn nil dwellers on low
lands adjoining tho river to prepare for
a Hood," said Mr. Clarke yesterday. "It
the rain comes, as I think It will, there
will bo nothing to prevent the lec In
the mountain streams from breaking
up nnd the snow on the mountain sides
from melting. A Hood will be inevit
Mr. Clarke sent out over SUO postal
cards yesterday, addressed to various
parts of Northeastern Pennsylvania,
giving warning of a flood, and notified
the train dispntcheis of all the rail
roads to look out for washouts.
There vas no very gieat thnw yes
teiday, as the temperature was at the
freezing point nearly all day, and the
snow only melted when the sun was up.
The walking wns fairly good, except at
the crossings, where the water came
over one's ankles In manv Instnnces.
Early In the afternoon it began to
freeze and when nightfall came on tho
slush had been transformed into half
solid snow.
The department of public works was
swamped Saturday notwithstanding its
best efforts. Enily in the day Director
Kocho realized that the urgent neces
sity of the hour was the keeping open
of the sowers, sewer basins and the
gutters so far as possible that the water
fiom the melting snow might be
di allied from t(io streets and prevent
the woes that an accumulation of sur
face water would entail.
Ho directed Superintendent of Streets
Thomas to hire every man he could
find and they were set to work opening
sewer basins and gutters and digging
canals through the heaped up snow to
get a passage way for the water. It
was impossible to get men enough to
do this and keep the cioss walks dear
and the latter had of necessity to re
main uneleaned.
Yesterday the sewer basin .at Linden
stieet nnd Washington avenue choked
but a gang from the stieet depaitnient
was soon on hand and had it restored
to its normal condition. The wisdom
of bending every energy Saturday to
keep the water from accumulating on
the street was demonstrated during the
few hours yesterday when the sun
had power enough to thaw. The snow
was no sooner reduced to water than
It passed Into the sewers leaving the
streets comparatively dry. Today the
energy of the street department will bo
directed to the work of cleaning the
crosis walks.
In view of the thaw and rain that is
promised, Director Roche requests that

storm, but the fc'craiiton l.nllwit.v com
pany Is still suffering from the effects
of that tueiiiuiuble combination of
snow, sleet tiiul inln. Cms aie being
mil i)ii nearly all lines, but with more
or lers Irregularity. The tracks on
South .Main nventie, south of Washburn
street, were completely covered with
frozen snovv yestrriluy morning nnd It
was midday before cars could get ns
fnr as Hampton street. It Is expected
(hut the street will bo cleaned us far
us the city lino today.
The storm wns responsible for one
thing which the residents of Uull's
lleud are thankful for, nnd that was
the collapse of the roof of tho cele
brated tied Hunt, In the rear of
.iiurehcH' cornels, on Huturilav. Tho
snow became too heavy for the loot of
the structure and In It crashed, ion
deling the building unlnhubltublo at
The lied llurn has been for years the
dwelling place of 11 number of persons
of bail reputations. It was split In two
by a mine cavo last summer, but the
residents wore not at' nil disconcerted
nnd kept right on living In the struc
ture, despite the fact that It was ap
parently In Imminent danger ot top
pling over. It Is believed, however, that
the falling In of the roof will necessi
tate the moving out of the occupants.
Tho roof of 11 largo shed in Green
Hldge, belonging to the Green ltldge
Glass company and formerly used by
that concern as a wagon shop, col
lapsed under the snow on Hatiirday.
Nothing prettier was ever seen In this
city than the appearance that the Ice
