"The First Baptist chutch of the East

It easier for lilin to sever his lelations
with the Scianton chinch. Di. DKon
accepted a call to the chuicli In Scian
ton shottly aftei the death ot Dr. 13ddy
last year, going theie on Septembet 1.
Befoie he left he was Infoimally told
that the "lucant pulpit In the Flist
chuicli was his If he would accept It.
He wanted to accept, but as he had al
lendy accepted the Scianton call, ho
could not see his vvuy clear. Then ho
tried as delicately as possible to get a
leleaso ftoin (the Scianton ptople, but
they weie uppaiently steadfast In the
belief that Di. Dixon was an acceptable
preacher, and would not iclease him.
Now comes the imputative demand fiom
the Brooklyn chutch for a decisive an
swer. It is likely that Dr. Dlxoh will
lepeat his lequest to the Scianton
church to lelease him. The Flit chinch
pulpit Is a desirable one. The chuicli
Is at Leo avenue and Keai stieet. It
was organized In 1839, and Its- piosent
inombeishlp Is about live-bundled. The
Sunday school has a inombeishlp of 3SS.
