SOCIAL EVILS AND THEIR CURE

SOCIAL EVILS AND THEIR CURE LECTURE BY ADJUTANT TOMLINSON AT BARRY DOCKS. A most interesting and thoughtful lecture was delivered at the Bible Christian Chapel, Barry Docks, on Monday evening last, under the auspices of the Salvation Army, by Adjutant Tomlinson, Cardiff. Captain O. Chalker presided over a fair attendance, and opened the meeting with prayer. Adjutant Tomlinson directed his remarks to Social Evils and their Cure." Every denomina- tion in the world, he said, admired the social work of the Salvation Army, but in spite of the efforts of Christian societies, philanthropists, or any other society that aimed at the uplifting of the masses, Great Britain was at present in a more sinful and deplorable state than has ever before been recorded in the history of her greatness. The submerged masses and the unemployed were on the increase, and before they could minimise and eventually overcome the sorrow and misery, the cause must be uprooted and killed. Twenty-five thousand unfortunate people were under the observation and care of the Army. The methods that had recently been adopted had worked so admirably that of every 100 persons who entered the 680 homes, 75 went out thoroughly converted. (Applause.) Drinrc alone contributed £ 179,000.000 to the National Exchequer, two-thirds of which came from the pockets of the working-men—men who were only too apt to sing, under the freedom of the British flag, Britons never shall be slaves.' And yet General Booth was obliged to beg and pray of his Majesty's Government for a few pounds to carry oa the work of the Army. Last year 5,000 persons were sent to Canada through the instrumentality of the emigration scheme and it was hoped to send 10,000 more this year. Six hundred long-sentence criminals had been met on their discharge from prison this year, and received considerable kindness, encouragement, and benefit at the homes. In a concluding appeal for practical help at Barry, Adjutant Tomlinson expressed an earnest hope that ere long each corps would become responsible for the cases of distress and poverty in their respective districts. — Adjutant Tomlinson was cordially thanked for his lecture and Captain Chalker, after expressing the gratitude of the members of the local corps for the use of the chapel, said a number of unfortunate persons had been sent from Barry to the National Institution and Rescue Homes at Bristol, and one man, who had spent a fortune of B15,000 in drink, worked two-and-a-half years on a farm colony in Canada, being afterwards transferred back to Barry Docks, where he was again building up a successful career for himself. (Applause.)
