THURSDAY FEBRUARY 22 1894 i
In his address Sunday night he 1
traced the early strugglers of his peo
ple for religious freedom, and gave a '
brief account of the work his church |
is now doing for the evangelization
of Italy. At tbe outset he spoke
beautifullv of the three books out of
which God teaches men. The book
of nature and the book of history are
the first two, but because meu so of*
ten read these amiss God gave a third
book. His Word, contained in the Bi
ble. He would take his text, hows
ever, from the second book, that of
He explained, parenthetically, that
the Waldenses did not derive their
name, as is so commonly believed
and taught, from Peter Waldo. He
was a Frenchman of Lyons, and lived
about 1120. He was called Waldo
because he became a Waldensan.
Every sect or denomination, observ
ed Dr Prochet, reverence the memory
of its founder. The Methodists are
proud to point back to Wesley as
their founder, the Calvinists to Cal
yin, the Lutherans to Luther. The
Scotch Presbyterians honor the mem
ory of John Knox, but no Waldensan
has ever been known to claim Peier j
Waldo as their founder or the organs
izer of their church.
1 lie speaker brought out forcibly
the power, both temporal spiritual,
of the Pope about and after the year
1,000, and showed how wonderful was
the resistance of the little handful of
Waldenses to the might and domins
ion of the Romish Church. His peo
ple have been called "the Israel of the
Alpse." and, indeed, in many ways do
they roserable God's chosen people.
As the Jews were alone for a time in
the midst of a heathen world, so were
the Waldenses shut up in the luidstol
the Catholic world, and as the Israel
ites were the only representatives of
the true religion, so the Waldenses
wore the only ones whe did not bow
the knee to Baal, and refused to be
led astray by the errors whifh tbe 1
Catholic Church disseminating.
At first the Roman Church sent
missionaries among the Waldenses.
She began by courting thorn, going
to them with soft words and flattery, '
find when they we r o not to be won
over in that way she began her terris
ble and bloody persecution among
them. They began to slaughter tbem
by the whole families It was either
"the mass or death," and the wal
denses died. Their Bibles were burned
in stacks; but, said the speaker, the
Waldenses have always had a enstom
of committing great gortions of tbe
Bible to heart. (He himself knew a
Waldensan who could repeat tie
whole book of Psalms.) If the Catho
lics had succeeded in burning every
Bible, a very likely Waldensan tradi
tion says that it would have only been
necessary to have gathered the people
together, string them out in a line,
and liave the man who committed
Geuesis to repeat it from memory;
likewise him or her who had cam
mited Exodus, and so on throughout
the whole of the Scriptures. The
Waldenses learned the Bible by books
The speaker's description of the
acenes of those perescutions was a
powerful one. He pictured the
soldiers entering the peaceful moun
tain home. The father w:is given
eight days to bow to the Pope, or die.
The speaker graphically portraved
the day passing away after another
until the fated hour drew near, when
the father should first see bis whole
family—wife and children—slausjh
tered before his eyes and then die
himself. A decendent of those mar
tyrs the speaker said his blood boiled
as he thnught of their persecutions.
It was this description that the spea
ker very effectively ended bv quoting
Milton's hymn: "Avenge, O Lord
hv slaughtered sainu."
But the \> a Menses did not submit
tamely to these persecutions. They
resisted with a wonderful heroism,
and sometimes, fortified hv tbeir
superior imsiiion in the mountain
fastnesses, a mere handful of them
put la fight whole companies of their
While it was in 1600 that tbe
bloody persecutions ceased, it was
not until I*4s that the Waldeuses
had leave to worship outside their
own valleys, or even to buy land be
yond their own boundaries. Higher
schools were long prohibited, and it
WHS only through tbe intervention of
the ambassador of England in 1833
that thev were allowed to have Latin
grammar taught to tbeir children,
Since tbe W aldenses have been al
lowed some latitude and freedom
they have begun the evangelizntion
of July, lac w»>fK of troiu
the errors taught by tbe priests, and
from the two daughters of Romanism,
superstition and infidelity. Paradox
ical as it may seem, these two are
sisters, the preacher maintained, and
in illustration said that if Voltaire,
the great infidel, when starting out on
a journey should see three crows he
would turn back in terror, and post*
pone his journey to another day.
The Waldenses ate making an im
pression, and are having no little suc
cess in spice of great obstacles. The
King of Italy has peisonaliy assured
Dr. Prochet of his hearty wish lor the
succes of the Waldenses work. They
haye 44 orgauized congregatins, 531
stations, 5,000 have come out from
the Roman Chuicb through their efs
forts, and 709 Roman Catholics are
now attending their Bible classes.
There is a desire to hear the Gospel
in Italy. The nation, as a whole, is
not yet touched, but the Waldenses
are content to labor on with such sue
cess as they are meeting. The spea
ker related many instances of re
markable conversions among the
Catholics. He told, among others,
of a Catholic who had been a drunks
ard, wno was converted. The priest,
hearing of it, went to the man's wife
In great alarm and said :
••My dear woman, your husband is
on the way to hell. He has gone
with the Waldenses."
The woman 9aid:"Well Father,
when he was on the way to heaven,
he used to come home drunk, and
beat me and abuse the children.
Since he has been on the way to hell,
he comes Lome sober, aud brings us
bread aud has nothing but pleasant
words to say. I wish you would let
him be OR the roap to hell a little
In conclusion, the speaker aaid he
wanted the sjinyathy and urayers of
all who were then listening to him.
While his people and this people
spoke diffirent lasguages, they all
believed in the s.me God. The Ital
an said 4'Padre,"Nostre,"theAmeri
can "Our Frther;" the Germau
"Unser Fater; the Latin " Pater
Noster;" but He is the Father of all
The Observer learned yesterday
that one of the objects of Dr. Proch
ets coming to this country is to try
to collect $20,000 for carrying on the
evangelistic work in Italy. The
Waldenses hsve always been - a poor '
people, but they thought that per-'
hads they might get some uelp |
through the generosity of the free
hearted and free-handed Americans.
Whether he succeeds or not in col
lecting it, their work will go on,
though under greater difficulties,
They are are not begging. Uev. J.
11. Boyd, of the Second church, has
consented to receive and forward to
L>r Prochet any etfering that any
one might care to contribute.
••Notice from the Board of Miss
sions," by our exoellent Secretary,
Kev. W. B. Doub, which appeared in
the ADVOCATE of January 31st. are
timely and shou'.d have the attention
of every member of the conference. I
wish to stress the importance of
early collections for missions, and in
doing so suggest three considera
1. By unanimous vote of annual
Conference at Wilmington we "re
solved to endeavor to collect the
amount for Foreign Missions by
March Ist, 1894." So that by formal
and positive action, we as members
of the conference are committed to
early appeal to our people.
2 There is immediate demand for
the money. Foreign Missionary
drafts which fell due in the early
part of the year must be paid by the
Board when due. If the money is
not in the treasury it must be bor>
rowed, at heavy interes , and that in
volves loss to our missionary fund
which the Board is not able, and
ought not to be required, to tear.
The only means of relief is through
early collections. The responsibilis
,ty is mainly upon the presiding eU
ders and pastors who have this mats
ter specially in hand. Let us be
faithful to our trusi.
And theu then our Home Missions
aries need money, %nd need it early.
Many of them have families to sup
port; perhaps received sma'l salaries
the past year, have bad to bear *he
expanse of a long move, and conee
quently have but little, if any, money
AS tuey enter upon their new work,
besides this, the) are in undeveloped
territory where they cannot expect,
and will not be likely to recieve
much fr«»m the peop e whom thev

o*n motives* tail' in oi>ed»eno«i to "tue
the powers that be," and to do work
assigned them by the church. They
are entitled to Hie thoughtful aud im
mediate consideration of those who
have more inviting fields of labor.
We are their stewards and to us
they look !or prompt aud earnest
etfort lor their relief. We think
our stewards unfaithful if they defer
collections for our support un til the j
close of the year* Let us set them
an example worthy of their imitation.
3. Farly collections rander entire su c
cC!»s more probable and easy. Money
is often more plentiful in the first part
of the year; if the tirst call does not se
cure the full assessment, there will be
opportunity for other efforts during the
year; and then it is not encumbered by
an accumulation of other interests for
which collections must be taken, to leave
all these collections to the uncertainties
of the close of the year, when the stew
ards of the circuit or station are in a
