The Repubican press says it is trea
son to advocate the cause of peaco on any
term. Even preaches continue to preach
war, ami yet Christ in His Sermon ou the
Mount, tell us that "Blessed arc the
peace makers) ; for they shall be called
the children of God," anil in Romans we
are further told : "itow beautiful are
the feet of them that preach the Gospel of
peace." Which is safer, therefore, to
lollo-v the war preacher and the Dtvil,
or the teachings of the Bible and the Sou
of God.
