Evangelical vmurcu. ouuui j-wcmy-sevenui,
preached nis lareweil sermon yesterday
morning, or as he put it, not his farewell
sermon, bnt bis last as pastor of the church.
In the sermon he made several references
to the trouble in the church. He said:
"The wicked cannot bear the light. Holl-
. cess, zeal for God, 'well doing,' are detested by
the carnal mind. And, if they can do no more,
they trill traduce the character of the righteous
and if possible cripple their usefulness."
Suddenly stopping, the speaker said: "I
want that to have time to soak in."
Following the sermon, Rer. Mr. Melhorn
read a copy of the call issued by the church to
him iu 1SG2, and then read the following ex
planation of his situation:
"As in every congregation, there were a few
in this one,wno seemed neverto be satisfied, ex

communed on that day that ever communed in
this church at any one time. And 17 new mem
bers were added. While many of the faithful
ones were here at that time, engaged in the
solemn service of commemorating the passion
of our dear Lord, the emissaries of the
wicked one were pluttoning the passions by
sowing the seeds of discord and schism, alien
atinc the membership and rending the body
of Christ by nightly traveling the hills and
valleys, sowing tares among the wheat; and.
Judging from the amount of 'blowing' they
have done, and the disgrace they have entailed
on the congregation, by misrepresentation to
reporters of papers, the brethren would sup
pose that they bad secured at least one-half of
the names of the membership on the paper
they were circulating.
' '-But what is tbe fact? Out of a membership
now on the record of 304 they prevailed on 41) to
sign their paper, two of whom have declared
that their names must be taken oft One
name was put on while the lady was in bed a
sleep, and without her knowledge and consent,
leaving them 38 names, counting drones and

"Fifty-three of the members have applied for
their letters of standing in the congregation
during the last week, with a view at no far dis
tant day to hand them in elsewhere. I have
urged them to stick to theenurch and not
allow themselves to be pushed out bj the ene
mies of peace and harmony, and the Lord will
reward them and punish. the ungodly for their
ungodly deeds, for He has said, 'Vengeance is
mine; 1 will repay.

AFTEE the sekmon
large number of the congregation docked
mod Rev. Mr. Melhorn and many morede-
L their allegiance to him. It was proposed
discipline the dissenting members, and Rev.
Mr. Melhorn was asked if he would stay with
them; but he gave no promise. A meeting of
the congregation, to take action in the matter,
will probably be called in a few days.
On the other hand, the members of the fac
tion opposed still persist in their action, and
say that they may form another congregation.
All in all, still more startling things may be ex
pected from the schism in the little church.

IHEIB CENTENNIAL CELEBATED.
An Interesting; Time at One of the Oldest M.
E. Churches of the Mononcabela Valley.
An event of no little interest transpired yes
terday at the Taylor M. E. Church, located on
the National road, in Washington county, four
miles west of Brownsville. The occasion was
the one hundredth anniversay of the church.
The quaint old stone building has been from a
time beyond the memory of the oldest inhabi
tant one of the landmarks between Washing
ton and Brownsville.
Some claim that it is the oldest Methodist
Church west of the mountains, though Union
town was probably ahead. Bishop Asbury
preached within the walls of the old Stone

To Tote for the Constitutional Amend
ment When the Time Comes.
TflEIEVEEY SINGULAR POSITION.
They Dissent From the Constitution for
One Important Season.
THE BET. D. MMLLISTEE, D.D., EXPLAIKS
The question, which has been raised
among religious circles, whether the Cove
nanters would vote for the Constitutional
amendment, has at last been answered by
Bev. David McAllister, D. D., the pastor
of the Eighth Street Hemmed Presbyterian
The reverend gentleman was asked for
information regarding the question Satur
day. He stated:
"I think I may positively state that the
majority of the members of our church will
Tote on the Constitutional amendment and
vote for it. Of course you must know that
our position in regard to voting is somewhat
different from that of any member of other
churches. It is simply this:
"The historical position of the Reformed
Presbyterian Church has always been that
'of political dissent from the written com
pact ot the United States Constitution. The
Church understands this compact to bind all
who administer the Government under it to
do so without placing or giving any prefer
ence to Christianity in administrating acts
over any other religion at the same time.
THE HISTOEICAL POSIIIOIT.
has also been that the way is open for all
political acts, which do not approve the
compact of the written Constitution. Hence
the fights in the army. No church sent a
larger proportion into the field than the
Beformed Presbyterian Church. Our mem
bers may serve as school trustees when an
oath to the Constitution is not required.
"We have also Toted on amendments to the
Constitution because we consider voting on
an amendment different from voting for an
officer to administer the Constitution with a
wrong provision in it."
"What is this wrong provision?"
"The equal consideration of all "re
ligious belief. "We contend that the
religion of Christianity ought to have
been mentioned in the Constitution
in preference and in distinction from
any other belief and hence we dissent
from it. But when it comes to the vote for
an amendment we feel at liberty to doso
because we can apply the law of Christianity
"The Constitution can never be the
law of its own amendment Therefore
the question whether an amendment
is right or wrong can be decided by
the voter in his own application of
a moral law higher than the Constitutional
"This being the position we take, I feel
safe in saying, that we will vote and work
"On next Wednesday the highest of our
church in this land, the Synod, will meet at
Belle Center, 0.( and if the question
come up there, which it most likely will, a
resolution will undoubtedly be passed in
dorsing the objects of the Constitutional
amendment, and requesting everybody to
work for it"
THAT GENEVA COLLEGE EOW.
Dr. McAllister Talks About It at Bis Church
A Full Explcnntion Some Interesting
Bev. Dr. McAllister, in place of his
usual Sunday afternoon sermon, devoted the
time to an explanation of the difficulties of
Geneva College. He began by saying that he
felt it due both to himself and his church that
a full statement of the case be given. This be
causea great manyincorrect reports were afloat
and because his church had always been one of
the most liberal patrons of the college. Two
members of his church had given $5,000 each,
another $10,000, another a laige donation of
rare and valuable books. Booms in the college
hadbeen furnished by different members of
tho Eighth street congregation.
The doctor bad himself been a member of
the Geneva faculty, and within the past year
had, at great sacrifice, given $500 to the college.
This be felt was a sufficient reply to the charge
of littleness in refusing to pay the diploma fee
of 812 exacted by the faculty. The faculty had
made the demand in a "discourteous threaten
ing, domineering way" first by letter and
again through their treasurer In per
son on commencement week when ho and his
wife had gone to witness the irradnation of
weir son ana aaaguier. xne manner Of mak
ing the demand was snch that he could not in
self-respect accede to it When be received
the ugly note he looked on it as a game of bluff
and concluded to let it pass, but to have the
dose repeated in person, when he was on the
ground to enjoy the educational feast and par
take of the hospitalities of the true and tried
friends, was a little too much, and so he refused
to respond to a domineering, discourteous
The doctor then proceeded to say that this

LACK OF LIFE.
When the pulse beats feebly: when the ener
gy is jrone; when the appetite is weak and
sleep uncertain, then tbe body is in a condition
of actual "low life." No matter what the causes
may have been Nature has civen way, and un
less her strength is restored, disease is certain
to take possession of the body. Tbe first thing
any doctor does in such a case is to assist Na
ture. Here are some instances:
Prpf. Austin Flint, of Bellevue (New York)
College, says: "The judicious use of alcoholic
stimulants is one of tbe striking character
istics of progress in the practice of medicine
daring tbe last half century."
The celebrated Dr. J. Al. Carnwall says: "I
am most nappy to say, alter a very thorough
test, that for persons Buffering with nervous
and general debility or any wasting disease, or
lor delicate persons or invalids, DunVs Pure
malt Whiskey is the best tonic and pureststim
ulant with which I am acquainted."
There are no higher scientific authorities
than these, and they speak volumes. Beware
of all bottled whiskies which may be offered
you, except Duffy's. It has stood the test of
time and is absolutely pure.
BLOOKER'S DUTCH COCOA,
was but one ot many similar Instances of dis
courtesy; that while there -were exceptions in
the faculty of Geneva College as a body, they
had repeatedly shown a want of tact and gen
tleness, a fata! defect in such as have the
molding and shaping of youthful character.
He made no charge of anything immoral, but
simply gross errors of judgment and a want or
tact and refinement, which was working mis
chief to the institution.
The result of this, it was claimed, appears in
the fact that the college Is dwindling down to
the condition of au academy, and has been
shorn of the power it ought to wield, and would
under right management, The defectB of the
institution would, in all probability, be brought
before the synod at its approaching meeting, as
petitions were already in circulation with that
aim. and the doctor was ready then and there
to give his testimony in full. In conclusion he
expressed the hope that Geneva College would
come up higher anddo -great work for Christ
and the nation by sending forth ladies ana
gentlemen, who would be as polished stones
fashioned after tne similitude of a palace.
