Editor Cairo Bumktin:
In your Issue of the 18th instant Is an
article purporting to be' "what a Cairo
Israelite heard In a Church In Clinton,
Kentucky" during tbe w.tk of prayer,
The writer ssysi "the Rev. lit,
Evans, minister of the Presbyterian
Church, said that tbe Jewish people had
always been disliked, he disliked them."
"The Rey. Mr. Evans" aald no such
thing. He did say that he had great
feneration for the Jews because they
were God's ancient chosen people. He
said that to hate tbe Jew, was to bate
Abraham, Isaao and Jacob, and the
lineage through which the Savior ot the
world came which As could not allow.
Alter this the "Rev, Mr. Evans" pro
ceeded to give hit views as to the teach
ing ol the Bible In reference to the Jews'
return to Jerusalem, and concluded hla
remarks with this language: "Such is
my respect and love lor God's ancient
people, that 1 rejoice to-night in being
permitted to join my prayers with God's
peoplo throughout our land, that mis
sions to Jew as well as to Gentile may be
prospered ol God, even to tbe ends of tbe
Tho writer In question is also pleased
to call the "Rev. Evans" "narrow mind
ed," "prejudiced," ''presuming to teach
before be lias learned," and says he ought
to be "tumbled from tbe lap of tbe pre
sent into the middle of the dark ages."
But oi himself this writer says, In sub

dealings were neither ofienslve nor on
"Rev. Evans" can but wish for that
writer's own good that he had absorbed
a little ol his associates gentlemanly and
non-oflcnslve language and spirit.
In conclusion. "Rev. Evans" offers
this word of welL meant advice to bis un
known Iricnd : Wben you go to church
again, pay a little closvr attention to what
is said; and It perchance yon fall to
understand it, don't rush recklessly into
print and misrepresent the preacher, And
thereby for the $ond time expose your
self to tbe contempt ol a congregation ;
and above all, the next time you so freely
and gratuitously use the name oi another,
don't be ashamed to sign your own. It
is tbe base assassin wbo stabs bis victim
