Rockfeller's Latest Trust.
RELIGION ON BUSINESS LINES. A novel church trust, said to be the idea of Mr J. D. Kookt'eiler, is proposed for the consideration of American denomination*. The project is to consolidate all tho competitive religious sects in the United States and work their organisation on the m >del of the well known Standard Oil Trust. The proposers of the scheme paint out that the weakness of religious eiort in the pre sent day lies in the disorganised state of the great body of Christians who work in opposition to each other. Their main 6tTorts are identical, and would, if combined be an irresistibly potent; force. They point to the splendid success which has resulted from the organisation of all the branches of the Standard Oil Comp-.ny, and they assort that, in business methods were applied to tho Christian churches, in all of which the saaia spirit of Christ prevails =md provides a common ground work, the benefit to the Church and to the humanity would be immeasurable.
