AFTER THE
A Delegatlon Waits Upon
Baptlst Mlnlster Here.
FEELING MUCH AGGRIEVED
They Inslsted That He Cease Mnking
Publications Regardlng, Joseph
Smilh, the Hend of
Tholr Church.
Tho Mormon scct, as lt Is roprosented
In RIchmond, hns manlfeated a distinct
and declded dlsapproval of an attack
made upon it by a Bnptist pastor here,
lt hns done nothing more nor loss than
appolnt a delegatlon of elders to walt
upon tlio mlnlster In question and cxpos
tuluto with hlm?have lt out, ns lt were.
The matter has attractcd some liltlo at?
tentlon In tho East End, und the end of lt
Is not yet. The Baptlst clergyman, lt ls
true, reeelved tlio delegatlon nnd nrgued
with them, but he dld mot change hls
views. So far from rctreatlng from the
posltlon ho hnd tnl.cn, bo prepafed an?
other broadsido and wlll very shortly let
fly agaln,
HAVE BEIvN ACT1VE.
For somo tlmo past Ihe Mounons have
been qultf? actlve In RIchmond, partlcu?
larly on Church Hlll, where they have
been maklng a houso to hotisp canvOs,
How successful they have been In win?
ning converts it is Inipossihle to say, but
they havo cortainly been at work.
Upon the Hlll Is sltuated the Broiidus
Memorlal Bnptist Church, of whlch the
Rov. Clarence P. Stealey is the pa.stor.
I'n connectlon wlth his church Mr. Stealey
edlts a llttle paper cnlled "Thc Ques
tioner," ln whlch he prints the news of
hls congregation and ln whlch at tlmes hc
tia_ something to say cdltorially. The ac
tlvlty of the Mormons came to the atten
tion of Mr. Stealey, and be nt onco throw
nn edltorlal llrcbrand lnto the camp.
First of all he gave a loiig strlng of Mor
monite prlnciples.
'Must now," he said, "there is need for
tho peoplo on Church Hlll to Know wno
the MOrmons ure, and to have n llttle
better und'erstandlng of their doctrlnes
lhan they,are liable to glvo in their llrst
efforts to wln a hearing. We have a great
many facts in regard to them, and wlnie
there Is no personai feeling agalnst the
young men who uro dlssemltiatlng their
literature under tbe name of Latter Day
Salnts, we do want to warn our peoplo
Lhat they are of a late day and have no
connectlon whatever with tlie spirit und
teaching of Bible wrlters, They are
'wlse as serrjehts,' hut you can go no
further ln tho quoiation. Here aro somo
Of thelr bellefs. ??*???_ the nextt issuo
we wlll have something more to say."
The "next issue" appeared ln duo tlme
and ln it Mr. Stealey went pretty heavl
]y after Joseph Smlth, tbe great prpphet
bf aiOrmonism. He nrgued that no rellg- |
ton can riso above the xnoral statue of its >
founile)-, nnd he thereupon proceeded to j
declare that Joe Smlth had no moral ,
statue at all.
"lf there is nny system that Is worse |
than Mormainism,'.' sald Mr. Stealey. In ,
coricluslon, "we cannot thlnk what lt ls, j
for It clalms to honor tlie Bible, at tho \
.--atn.- tlme puttlng more honor upon such !
vlslons as joseph Smlth clalmed to have. ?
'No streafn can ri^o hlgher lhan tho 'foun- |
tain-liead.' "
WENT TO SEE HIM,
Thls was too ruueli for the Mormons
and a commlttee of elders have recent?
ly been to see Mr. Stealey abo.ni the mat?
ter. They dvL-lared that what be had said
w.is false, and tliey made a pretty urgent
suggestlon tliat lie dlscontlnue publlca
tions of Ihe surt. Jlr. Stoaley said yes
tcrday that there was no fhreat or anj'
ihlng of the sort. They wislied, how?
ever, to lriform hlm that whut ho had
sald wns false. Accqrdlng to the pastor
of Bi ?iddus-Membrlal he replied to the
elders tliat he wus pretty well satisficd
with tho sourccs of his informatlon.
The upshot of tlie wholo aft'air is that
Mr. Stealey hns written another edltorlal
agalnst tlie Mormons, and will publlsh
it in tho t'orthcomlng issuo of hls _>.i
per. He said yesterday that hc had no
Idea of withdiTiwing from tho field ur
ceoslng hls fire.
