f The Blameless Bishop |
iW. Tom Bosl in Greensboro News*
A bishop then must be blame
less, the husband of one wife,
viligant, sober, of good beha
vior, given to hospitality, apt to
teach; Not given to wine, no
striker, not greedy of filthy
lucre; but patient, not a braw
ler, not covcteous; One that
ruleth well his own house, hav
ing his children in subjection
with all gravity; (For if a man
know not how to rule his own
house, how shall he take care of
the church of God?) First Tim

Bristol, Va.—“I was just about
down in bed and so weak I was past
going,” writes Mrs. Jennie Goodman,
ol 718 Portsmouth Avenue, tills city.
Mrs. Goodmen says her family was
very uneasy about her condition, as
she seemed so weak and thin.
“I ached all over,” she explains,
“and my back and sides hurt most
of the time.
“I dragged around, and did not
see a day of good health.
“I went to cal1, on one of my

my looking so bad. She told me to
get a bottle of Cardui and take it.
Next Saturday night, my husband
brought It home to me.
“Before I had taken Cardui a
week. I was feeling much better. I
continued taking it for awhile, as
my health kept on improving.
“I gained in weight, and soon was
feeling like a new person. Since
then I have taken Cardui several
times, and it has always done mo

assailed Bishop James Cannon, .fr
aud delrn.se of this diocesan is im
perative It is a sad day in the
Daily News congregation when the
Gospel*must be shunted and de
scent. into worldly atfairs becomes
a momentary necessity. When
such a crisis as •factional conroi
in the Democratic party arises, it
is the duty of every clergyman to
regard his Church “as sheep going
astray. ’ and as a true bishop and
shepherd ot souls to sec that none
of thorn turn up m the camp of
Smith, Ratbiskit and Company!
Let there be, therefore, no cx
egetical circitmlottutions. What do
the Scriptures say about bishops
and what are the oliiccrs which
they are expected to perform? Al
ways somebody is talking about
Bishop Cannon and intimating that
he is misusing his church for
political purposes. But what of
bishops? What kind of men m ist
they be? St. Paul must have been
a rather successful bishop; indeed
he was the ablest of them all
Nothing that he said about bishops
is lacking in the ecclesiastical
equipment of Bishop James Can
non. jr.. “A bishop must be blame
less.'" Paul declares. Well, doesn't

than he? He is the only man in
all the world who knows whether
he is blameless or not and he says
lie is In all the long and illus
trious career of Bishop Cannon ir.
politics there is no record that lie
ever blamed himself.
In the second place, the bishop
must be the husband of one wife.
It is understood that this is not
obligatory. He is not required to
have any wite at all. Saint Paul
hah been suspected of bachelor
hood; but if a bishop be luxuriously
inclined, he must have only one
wife. Anybody would know that
Bishop Cannon hasn't more than
one wife: he never hud more than
one. All the evidence tends to
show that no two or more mother.'
in-law ever cramped his style.
In the third place 1 lie bishop
must be vigilant. Is there an
enemy of God and country who will
deny that Bishop Cannon is vigi
lant? Does anybody for a mo
ment think that CarUr Glass and
Governor Harry Byrd are putting
anything over on him?
And fourthly, the bishop must be

self that he Is ‘'sober.” It is a
habit With him, looking sober. His
sobriety actually seems to pain
him. it is so intense.
Fifthly, he must be of good be
haviour. Here again there is a
controversy which he alone can
settle. Other bishops have cen

denounced his conduct But Bishop
Cannon has not. He is pleased

hospitality. Well, there are many
kinds of it and the Scriptures arc
silent on the sort that a bishop I
must show. If we are going to!
stop with his treatment of Al.
Smith and Tammany then we can
not in truth contend that Bishop
Cannon is very long on hospital
ity. But Smith and Tammany have
neighbors on the New- York stock

In the seventh place he must be
“apt to teach ” Well, in the name
of prohibition has he not been call

than Bishop Cannon?

Tenth, not greedy of filthy lucre.
First place, any lucre that he
touches, whether plucked from 'he
"margins," or picked up from the
sanctified anti-Smith campaign
fund, will be clean.
Eleventh requirement that he be
patient Is so easily met that ref
erence to tt is unnecessary. The
twelfth, that he be "not. a brawler"
is Important. How peace does
brood about him! Bishop Janies
Thomas Helflin isn't less so.
Thirteenth, that he be "not
covetous," is purely relative. All
that he covets is control of Demo
cratic politics in Virginia and
throughout the United States.
Surely that is an honorable desire.
Fourteenth requirement that a
bishop "ruleth well his own house”
unfortunately is too personal lor
comment. But it may be guaran
teed that any bishop who can run
the Democratic party as he docs
should be able to handle his own
household and have ‘ his children
in subjection with all gravity.”
"For,’ 'asks the Apostle parenthet
ically, "if a man know not how
to rule his own house, how shall he
take care of the church of God?”
Or putting It differently, how can
a bishop better take care of the
church than by taking care first
of the Democratic organization?
Therefore, search the Scriptures
and you will find not a word that
condemns Bishop Cannon’s stock
speculations. There are 14 points
not including the interrogation, in
a bishop's qualifications, but not
one stands in the way of stock
gambling. If it be contended that
it is wrong to buy on margins, it
is in order to remark that many a
Christian expects to get eternal
life on far less than Bishop Can
non put into his stock operations.
"Bishop and shepherd of souls?” Of
course he is; .but if he elects to
become one of the fleeced lambs of
Wall street, or, better luck attend
ing him, to travel with the lean
wolves of high finance, St. Paul
interposes no objection.
And neither should the New
York World nor the Herald Trib
une of that same unholy city.

Why Not Organize
City League Here
With Four Teams?
Four Textile Clubs Having Double
header Each Saturday Would
• By Renn Drum)
Why shouldn't Shelby have a
tour-club textile league?
The town now has four fairly 11 -
textile mill clubs all looking to*
games and taking the chance ot
picking up Saturday contests wit!:
other independent clubs over the
section not booked for the day.
Would it not be considerably
more convenient and could not
more baseball fever be stirred up in
Shelby if the four clubs were o: -
ganized into a league with a propr.r
schedule so that they might play
each other each Saturday at the
Would Draw Crowds.
Tile idea, or plan of the writer is
that only one game be played each
week by each club, as the members
of all four teams are employed
the week, but the schedule should
be arranged for a double-header
each Saturday, thus permitting ail
four teams to play.
The four clubs referred to are the
Cleveland Cloth mill team. the
Dover-Ora team managed by Casey
Morris, the Eastyide mill club, and
the Soutli Shelby team. Suppose
that on the first Saturday the
Eastside team would play the South
Shelby team in the first game of a
double-header, beginning at 3
o’clock, with the Cleveland Cloth
team meeting the Dover-Ora ag
gregation in the second game. A
double-header of that type each
Saturday would without doubt draw
big crowds to the city park. And
therein, we believe, enters another
important factor of an organized
league. At present only one of th"
four clubs may use the city park
each Saturday, This means that
the other clubs must play cn
grounds where there are no fences
and admission is hard to collect, or
must play away from home. With
the four clubs playing in a double
header each Saturday at the city
park with good crowds attending
at 50 cents per admission—and any
baseball ian in town will pay that
to see a good double-header—the
four teams could split the gate re
ceipts each Saturday after the
games and thus realize enougn
money to defray their expenses.
Why Not Try It?
From every angle it appears as il
more baseball interest could be
worked up throughout the city
with the league plan than at. pres
ent and likewise the league plan
would give the city amusement for
the summer without the expense
that goes with keeping up an up
About One Hold-Rack.
One draw-back that may keep
some of the mills from endorsing
the league idea as suggested her«
will likely be the matter of expense.
In the past, we are informed, such
a league held sway for a time in
Shelby and the interest in the race
became so heated that the teams
began to employ professional and
semi-professional players to come
to town and play with their team,-.
Avoiding such an occurrence Should
a league be formed this year would
be no hard matter. Strict rules and
regulations should be set down ao
the beginning of the season and
adhered to. If formed there should
be a board of directors, made up of
a representative from each mill and
one uptown man not interested in
either team as head. The day the
league is formed the manager of
each club should be forced to sub
mit a list of his players. Then the
league ruling should be that no
other players should be employed
or used during the season. In cr.se
players, now employes of some of
the mills, should become sick or
leave town the matter of replacing
the absent players should be taken
up before the directors to be sure
that no “ringers” are run in to
