PARTY 'NAMES HAVE
LOST THEIR MEANING
What is a republican? He used to
"be a man who believed in a protec-
tive tariff who favored a centralized
government-and thought his party
because it had supported Lincoln
was toe only safeguard against in-
efficiency . and-trickery in govern-
ment. What J a democrat? lie nscu to
be a man who favored free trade
or at least a tariff for revenue only
who favored a de-centralized govern-
ment who upheld the doctrine of
state rights who considered the re-
publican pretension to better citizen-
ship pure folly and silliness.
But who can ten what a republi-
can or a democrat is today? David
H. Hill the New York 'politician and
senator was wont to pride himself
upon bis unerring democracy. "I am
a democrat" said to have been utter-
ed iby him in a moment of vain
'boasting became a by-word in poli-
tics. Were Hill alive today he
might Btill proclaim himself a demo-
crat but the average citizen could
dfy him ro define what he meant
by it. and win bin wager.
Party names have lost their
ing. The old designations.

Today although the old
persist voters are divided Into pro-
gressives and eonsenauves. There
are. men of both persuasions in both
parties. In other words. ;here re-

democrats - but. th.;;e are upnolder

Q. Is it true that the decadence of
religiout sentiment among the maane
cf the people so plainly evidenced by
the declining membership and influ-
ence of the many denomination and
sectarian systems will conduce to de-
velop a condition of anarchy and revo-
lution throughout the' civilized world?
The French Revolution is said to have
been caused by the tyranny and greed
of the aristocracy and the clergy in op-
pressing the peasant and the laboring
classes. The people recognizing th
injustice of the ruling powers lost all
respect for the ecclesiastical system
and in their rage and disgust over-
threw them bringing about a condition
of chaos. Are not similar conditions
developing today? (I. V.)
Answer.--On every side expressions
are beard from Individuals prominent
In the world's affairs-capitalists food
experts ministers and others allprog-
nost'"'nting: dreadful calamities if prca-
vi.it cVcVlttiohs continue. Tin? Scrip-
tures do teach that a "time of trouble
Kiich us never was since there was a
nation." will develop In the end of
this Christian Kra. (Daniel xil 1;
Matthew xiv. Ill 22.) Unquestiona-
bly the removal of all religious faith
from the-minds of nieii would produce

oUMitciuv to tbe laws nnu wmmanu-tftems-
of the-editor.' t he : Sovereign
Unlcr of the Universe mankind In
feneral would have little or no regard
for the principles of Justice love and
equity. It Is a self-evident truth to
nil intelligent minds that lawlessness
and general depravity could not exist
in a genuine Christian community a
community where the precepts and
teachings of Christ are fully accepted
and acted upon. Universal peace and
prosperity can never be established
upon any other basis than that of real
Q. What did the inspired writer
mean when he said Ecclesiastes iii 21
"Who knoweth the spirit of man that
goeth upward and the spirit of the
beast that goeth downward to tne
earth?" If there is any difference be-
tween the spirits of man and beast
would you kindly let me know? Also
how does one go up and the other
down? (M. E.)
' Answer. In the days of King Solo
moil about 10'W P.. C when these
words were written the heathen phi-
losophers w ere speculating ami theoriz-
ing as lo the nature of man. Some stir
luisod that man was half human and
half divine nnd contended that when
death took place the divine or spiritual
half ascended up on high ami had its
abode with the gods. It was supposed
by these heathen wise men that the
spirit of man was the intellectual or
reasoning essence of fJie being and
that it lived on when tbo body died.
They also contended that the beasts
were different from men in that when
they died they went down Info the
earth nnd that there wan nothing that
went up as with man. The sacred
writer. King Solomon himself was re-
futing these theories when he said
"Who knoweth the spirit of man that it
pneth upward or the spirit of the beast
that it goeth downward to the earth?''
This was the summing up of his argu-
ment of the preceding verses wherein
he declares that there' is no difference
in the death of men and beasts "as
the one dieth so diet.lt the other; yea
they have all one breath; so that a man
hath no pre-eminence above a beast"
It should be rioted that the word
"breath" and the word '.pi rit'' in these
verges are from the sanio iTcbrew word
ru.i which in this connection signi-
fies life.. The principle of life is always
the samu whether it is manifested in
man or in animals.
Q. Kindly explain how we are to
understand Matthew xn 40 where we
read "For as Jonah was three days
and three nights in the whale's belly
so shall the Son of man be three days
ri thrim nlnMa in the heart of the
earth;" yet His body was laid in the
sepulcher on Friday and Me arose
Sunday morning according to St. Luke
xxlii 53 54 which make only two
nights and three days. (U. J.J
Answer. The Scriptural evidence is
clear and strong that our Lord was
md. three full twenty-four-hour days
in the tomb but only parts of the
three days and nights; that He was
crucified on the day corresponding- to
our Friday afternoon and arose on
what corresponded to our Sunday
morning. The showing of tbe type
that the Taschal Lamb was to be kill-
ed sometime during the Hth of N'isan
and the wave offering of the sheaf of
the first-fruits was to occur on the

diould settle tbe matter ior all. It
ngrees with the repeated statements
(I Corinthians xv 4; Luke xxiv 40)
that our Lord rose on" "the third dav.
according to the Scriptures." This
Scrloture concerning the first-fruits is
Hie only one which we recall (is in any
w ay pointing out the fmc of our Lord's
resurrection. Then too the fact that
hNtory as represented In the tradi-
tions and customs points out Good
Friday and Kastcr Sunday as celebra-
tions of our Lord's death and resur-
rection should hare some weight on
trivial a matter UDless some motive
or reason for misstating the dates can

In to oppose all these facts Is the
declaration that our Lord would be

earth; nnd the only explanation th.it
can be offered to this is that the ex-
