The Ten Lost
ha Editor of The Journal. In Jiy communication on this subject, K'hlch appeared In The Journal of June IS, I showed that Mr. George "Wilson's Interpretation of the name Israel was contrary to the authority he adduced In his favor, viz., philoloiry. But if the meaning given by him to Israel was fanciful, his Interpretation of Elohlm (God), and Yahaveh (Lcrd or Jehovah) Is the very antipodes of their true signification. God In Hebrew Is El or Eloah, singular, and Klohlm, plural. Its etymology Is admittedly Involved, and Its true root meaning not fully known, perhaps. Still, what concerns us Is not so much Its etymological signification as the meaning attached to, and the application of, the term by the Hflirew writers. And on this head there is little doubt among scholars. It is admitted that as a verb El means to lnter-pcaor Intervene, by the exercise of auas In the case of Saul, thoritative power, 1 xiv. 24. As a particle before or preverbs it also signifies Interposition, by yad, vention. It Is sometimes Joined lisr.d, as the symbol of power.

This proves, according in the Godhead to some scholars, that persons, Implied in of there is a plurality unity substance, the noun, and a verb "Aof Trinity in expressed by the know Mr. Vnlty" in fact. I should like to Important George Wilson's view on this point The second meaning of the word is that the plural form, Elohlm, Is usedna-to denote the sum of all the powers of as resident In the ture, actual or potential, Hebrew Divine Being. Undoubtedly the conception of God (Elohlm) was that of omnipotence. The opening words of Gen. 1:1. plainly show this. They are Bcreshlth (in the beginning) bara (created) Klohlm AVh'ether we understand by bara (created) into existence out the calling of matter a preof nothing, or the elaboration of present existing ethereal matter into its of sysckmental state, or the evolution 13 now probtems out of nebulae, such asway and other ably going on in the milky necessity parts of the universe, we are ofpower that of forced to admit the exercise through every pasres human thought.

Haveh. the d syllable in Yahaveh, means life. As a to be. to subsist, to verb It Is rendered ccntlnue. and as .1 noun, being, existence, when applied to God means "The Beand necessarily existing of and from himing Parkhurst. etc.) On the self" (Spearman, of Trcgelles (where is there a nuthorlty cay: "Yahaveh, tho came caa jee btUfcrU -
of God, from the verb, havah. to be, hence, This name Is not applied in any sense to any created being." The kindred word, khavvah, life, is the name given by Adam to Eve, "because she was the mother of all living." (Gen. 111:3).) Havah, then, beyond dispute, means being, existence, or life subsisting of itself. And as we have already seen Yah signifies the essence, we have In essence, and a a life. Both inseparably combined are Yahavah. The axiom that life can only come from life Is. I suppose, universally admitted. Life. then. In all Its multitudlnal forms, comes from the Divine Being, not In His characteristic of power, Elohlm, butYa-In of being, that of his havah. Yahavah, therefore. Is not only whence "the law of life." but Is the source brought all life comes. As Yahavah. he Is Into relationship with all life, and all life is brought into relationship with htm. Hence it is that from the fourth verse to the end of the second chapter of Genesis we have the power of God (Elohlm) In His works, and the relation of God (Yahavah) to all living things, but especially to man. Inseparably Joined together, whilst In chapter fourth, where the relationship to man alone Is treated of, we have invariably Yahavah mentioned In that relationship. Yahavah, then, and not Elohlm, Is "the father of all life." This Is, of course, directly opposite to that which Mr. Wilson states, and It will therefore be amusing, if not Instructive, to mark what he does say. He asserts with out any .attempted proof, however that me seconu cnapter ot uenesis is antagonistic to the first In Its account of creation. Beginning as it does properly at the fourth verse, it. with the third chapter, elves the god. gospel of the cult of the the Jealous god. and his name "Jhoh" (the observant reader will note that Mr. Wilson is incorrect, even In the initial letter; it m "Y" and not "J"). It blended with that ot the Elohlm. or lifelonc cods of the first g chapter. That Yahavah is a god Is the pith and marrow of Mr. Wilson's contention. Contrast this bold assertion with what purports to be the statement, not only of the great prophet Moses, but of Yahavah Himself, as to the signification of His name. "And Yahavah passed by before him, and proclaimed, yahavah, Yahavah Elohlm, merciful and gracious, and abundant in goodnessandtruth.keeplng mercy for thous ands, rorgiving iniquity ana transgression and sin. and that will by no means, clear visiting the Iniquity of the the guilty; fathers upon the children and upon the children's children unto the third and to the fourth generation." Exodus. xxxiv.67. Is It too much to ask that Mr. Wilson and such as he will read the Bible for themselves and not take it at second-hand- ? If so, this gentleman, who is evidently well-rtawould not cut such a sorry spectacle In Biblical criticism and attacks on reEven his Hebrew dicvealed religion. tionary would keep him from making such a statement as this "In tho attempt to bring the two together there was no change irom tne root oi tne gou name ot tne two latter tribes (Judah and Benlamln) from one akin to Sansklrt Cvns. to blas-tto kill, and an attempt to get it from one akin to Independent to of create." Sanskrit Jlv. the confusion of thought In this not very elegantly expressed sentence. I nslc upon what authority are this and kindred assertions made? Not on the authority of the Bible narrative; not on the authority of anv historical document: not on the authority of philology; not on the authority of scholarship: not on the authority of any recognized author, it is made solely on tne authority of Mr. George Wilson. He has spun the theory from his own Inner consciousness Just as the spider weaves its web from Us own body; and It 13 Just as flimsy. But Derhans Mr. Wilson and those who think with him will nay resnect to a very ancient authority, and one not of the there Hebrew race. In the British h at the present time a tablet In the cuneiform character which gives a list of the various equivalents of the word Ilu. "god." Among these equivalents we find Yahu, tho shortened form of Yahaveh. The Babylonian scribe has attempted an etymology of the name which he has connected with words signifying "myself In his own lancuaee." For this I give the authority of the emTfient Assyrlologist. Pro- lessor sayce, or uxiorn, an autnoruy wnicn The Babylonian Mr. Wilson will accept. the same scribe then gives practically meaning to Yahaveh. or Yahu. that the Hebrews did. and that scholars do now one. the There are other mistakes of a serious nature which Mr. Wilson makes. Although Insignificant when compared with those underlying the names Elohlm, Yahaveh, Ylsrael. yet It may be well to point out a lew. sipeaKlng or tne len princes ot El" (the Ten Lost Tribes) ho says: "In short. It was a confederacy of tribes, wor- snipers ot tne great goa i.i. wnose city was Bab-e- l. or what we know through He takes the Greek form as Babylon." pains to divide the word Into syllables, so as to emphasize all the more the meaning he gives It Bab-e- l. "the City of El." But "Bab" does not mean ritv! It means pate. The Babylonian word for city is "alu." Nnr 1nps tho Wni-- "Ttatwi!" mpfin 'r.nt nf the cod." It Is not n. Rnhvlonlnn wnnl nt nil. It comes from the Hebrew "Balbel." to "contounii." The root Is not to be found In Babylonian. "Sabbath, from Sheba. the seventh day." writes Mr. Wilson, "meant at first Ihe divider . . . Sabbatuo. or Sabbath, in Chaldea. 'a day of rest for the heart,' was originally the seventh, or the day that divided one week from the next." These assertions are not facts. 0) Sabbath does not come from Sheba; they are distinct words, and neither of them means "divider." Sabbath, or Shabath. as a verb means to cease, to leave off, to rest from work, and is opposed not to weariness, but to work, or action. As a noun It means cessation from work, rest from work. Sheba has for Its third radical. Ayln. which has no equivalent sound in English, and as a verb means to have enough, to lie satisfied, full, complete; as a noun It denotes sufficiency, or Among the ancients the completeness. number that signified completeness was seven; hence Sheba came to express the number seven, as well as completeness. Because oaths were usually confirmed by seven vlotlms the word came also to signify to swear. (2) It happened that God rested from His work on the seventh dav. and thcrcipxe the seventh, became the Sabbath. Yah-hav-
But Sabbath Is not confined to the seventh day; it Is also applied to the tenth day of the seventh month, to the feast of unleavened bread, to the seventh year and to all times of sacred rest. 3) Nor It Is correct to say that In Chaldea the Sabbath was always the seventh day, for in that country there were originally five Sabbaths In the on month. The Sabbath rest was observed the seventh, fourteenth, nineteenth, twenty-fdays of the irst and twenty-eight- h month. Therefore, inasmuch as the Sabbath day fell upon the nineteenth it could not possibly be "the day that divided one week from the next." (4) The origin of the Sabbath can be traced, as we should have expected, to times. The Hebrew Shabeth comes from the Babylonian Sabattu. This again Is derived by the Assyrian scribes from two Sumerian words, "8a" and "bat," which mean respectively "heart" and "ceasing." In Accadlan times. too, tho Sabbath was a day on which certain work was forbidden, and when we come to primitive Accad, we are in touch with Noah. (5) Sabbath did not mean the "divider." Quite a different word 13 used for "to divide:" It Is bedel or ben. Again, Mr. Wilson asserts that the "Hebrew kal, to kill, is most likely no other radically than Latin calculus, a stone. To stone and to kill were the same." That may be. but they were not expressed by the same word. Eben meant to stone, and katal meant to kill. Because the conjugation kal of the verb katal, to kill, has the same sound as the first syllable of the Latin calculus, a stone, therefore Mr. Wilson concludes not only that they have the same root, but that to stone and to kill are etymologically and historically the same. And by such reasoning ior it will De seen nis otner arguments are on a par with this the basis of the Chris tian religion is demolished: But were this bad philology and worse argument confined to the ancient and dead languages, one could make excuse for the neglect or inability to refer to the original for a clear and concise statement of fact; but when It comes to a matter of English, and and a statement Is taken second-hantho superstructure of a thesis Is raised upon a misconception that reference to a 10 cent dictionary would correct, one Is ant to lose patience with a writer so recklessly remiss. That this Is so with Mr. Wilson Is also too manifest by the following: "Gospel, by the way, does not mean what we are taught, 'glad tidings,' but Is Icelandic. .Gud-spl- l. and means 'stories of the gods.' " Now. If the reader will take up his dictionary he will find that gospel comes from n God. or good, and spell, message, news, story "Good news." Oh, Mr. P. F. DUFFY. Wilson!

Something on Prohibition. To the Editor of The Journal. Dear Sir: After reading your article on prohibition In Kansas, I feel constrained to say a few things as a citizen of the Sunflower state. Perhaps no law has ever been enacted that has given Kansas more notoriety over the world than constitutional prohibition of the traffic In liquor as a beverage. None has ever been enacted that Is so generally winked at by men who have been elected by the people to enforce the laws of the commonwealth, among the most responsible of which are the county attorneys, sheriffs and police commissioners and police officers.
The most responsible men In the state of Kansas for the enforcement of all the laws the county sheriff; next In authority Is the county attorney. If these two men did their duty not a single Joint or bootlegger could exist In our state. In cities of the first class the police commissioners are the responsible men. who are under oath to faithfully enforce the law not consent to the constant breaking of the law. Every man who has subscribed to the oath of his office solemnly swears to support and enforce all law. The dally spectacle of an open Joint allowed to run for revenue must bear its fruit, produce educated lawbreakers, who become the anarchists of a cation, for when .i state or nation teaches the lesson that violation of law Is right then our protection is gone as a people. Tho prohibitory law In Kansas is the supreme law of the state, because It Is the voice of the people expressed at the ballot box. Its enforcement should be. If anything, more faithfully enforced than the law against gambling. Why? Because that Is simply statutory and may be repealed by a subsequent legislature. Not so with prohibition. That must, if ever, be repealed by the votes of the citizens of Kansas. If we have and teach anarchy In Kansas by reason of violation of a supreme law, we. the citizens and church people and true patriots, are responsible for It. If our officers, who have taken a solemn oath to defend, support and enforce the law, refuse and fail to do their duty, we, the citizens, should demand of them the enforcement of the law or their resignation, and county see tc It that no man be attorney, sheriff or Judge that has violated his oath or neglected his duty, not simply the enforcement of the prohibitory law, but For. by the enforcement of the law. If It Is a bad law, or not for the good of the stntp. then repeal it: thus we are Invnl citizens, not anarchists. The ment ot law Dreeas ana promotes contempt of the for all law; the prohibitory law In Kansas has done more to break down respect and obedience to law than any other law that has ever been enacted by the people: not that there is anything wrong in the law, but a wrong on the part of men who are custodians of the law. The man who fired the first gun on the flag at Fort Sumter In 1S61 was not a good citizen, but a traitor to his country, and the posse comltatus, under the orders of honest old Abraham Lincoln, said he desired to be punished for his crime. According to your published statement of editors, who no doubt give facts, fifty two counties in our state are In an open rebellion against the enforcement of the law of the state, Wyandotte county one of those counties that Is daily firing of the flag. I don't like the term anarchy, and I don t think our officers who fail to do their duty would think kindly of term may be used, the term, but whatever however mild, wo cannot escape the fact that failure to enforce law means ultimately the overthrow of all law. in your sxucie mo uuauou is as&cu, is Is
an honest effort made by the proper officers to enforce the law? Thirty answers are In harmony with the officers' oath of office, enforcement of the law; forty-nin- e are against the officers, an honest effort at enforcement. Until within the last few months I have been favorable to the police commissioners and the law that gives the chief executive power to appoint them: but with a majority of the best people of Kansas City, who are Interested In good government, good morals and loyalty to law, we have been disappointed. Joints are spreading all over our fair city that mean political corruption and disregard to all law. If I were governor of Kansas I would require the men appointed by me to enforce all laws, whether prohibition or other laws, and If they failed I would call for their resignations and abolish the office, and leave the enforcement to the local city authorities. The plea tnat tne city government must nave money to pay tne ponce iorce is no argument for the permitting of an alien Intruder to drive up and down our streets with an outlawed product of the still and brewery and defiantly sell the same, that pioduces criminals, disease and distress. Inez eases taxes and city expenses. Inasmuch as the object of the law Is defeated that creates tho police commissioners, who utterly fall to keep the law. I believe It should be repealed at the next legislature. What is the need in our cities nnd. In fact. In the nation. Is a baptism of the spirit of patriotism. Our churches need It In great measure, and unless It be received we had better abandon both pulpit and pew. For what Is the mission of tho Christian church except to antagonize sin. either In high or low places? The balance of power lies In the keeping of the proNot one in ten fessor!

It Is so weak and decrepit as scarcely to deserve a place In our system of Jurisprudence."

The supreme court of Iowa lays down this rule: "While the evidence of experts as to signature Is entitled to consideration, it is. nevertheless, of the lowest order of evidence, and of tho most unsatisfactory character and ought not to be allowed to overthrow tho positive and direct evidence of a creditable witness who testifies from personal knowledge."
