A Man Fired Out for An Alleged
Opinion Differ as to His Innocence
lllood ltivcr Haplist church is
noted for sensations, says a correspondent
to the Murray Ledger.
This time it's a chargo against K.
Lasslter for trying to force Kssie
Stewart, tho little 13-year-old daugh
ter or J. 1. Stewart, who is pastor of
scid church. Tho girl states that tho
attempt was made last May, her
father knowing of it, and told other
bothers of it tho first of Juno, so tho
story goes tho three mouths between
thcu and now. When church conference
was held this was kept a
and the church reported iu peace.
A party was telling it to
somo of tho members aud asked nil
to keep it n secret from Kuos nnd
intended to turn him out of the
church and not let him know it. Ho
selected his own committee to Investigate
it, aud Lasslter was told of
tho charge, it enraged him and he
denounced it as a base, slanderous
falsehood and that it was tho infamous
slime of somo slanderer done
through prejudice, lint tho committee,'
which consisted of nieu,
proceeded to invcntlgato said
clmrgi aud to take evidence iu
writing and verbal. Three cf the
committee wcro deacons of said
church and owing to the girl's crooked
statements, part of them known to
be false, and tho conllicting statements
made by both her parents, tho
committee said there was nothing in
the charge and believed Mr. Lasslter
to lip innocent. Notwithstanding it
agreed to let tho committees report be
tlunl and presented to tho church, it
did not suit. Hence, Mr. Outland
who had ridden around nnd to
tho members his side only
arose and made- a motion to
withdraw their fellowship from
said Lasslter for attempted seduction
without debate, so tho voto was taken
without any trial without the committees
report which declared tho charge
false, and without Mr, Lassltcr having
n word to say nt tho same timo
had abundance of evidence to provo
him innocent. Tho voto stood 12
for, and 11 against tho motion,
seven stewards voting. The deacons
called another meeting, hut tho clerk
and moderator declared it was Illegal,
so on tho lost regular churob conference
day Mr. Lassltcr was there. He
aroio to ask for a hearing and a fair
trial. He was told by tho moderator

House Tuesday night.
No entertainer that will come to
Paducah this season will rival Willis
Irwin. Ho is n master of comedy
and pathos, depicting joy and sorrow
as few nctcra can do. Mr. Irwin
was a pupil of De Milie, who, in
colaboration with Dclasco wrote
The Charity Mall," "Tho Wife,"
"Heart of Maryland" aud who also
trained Mrs. Lcsllo Carter, who is
now starring in the last named play.
Do Mtllc selected Willis Irvin to
originate the rolo of tho rector in his
"The Charity Hall," but Mr. Irvin,
finding his work in his own composition,
declined. After a recent appearance
in the Capital, tho Washington
Herat says :
"The dramatic entertainment given
by Mr. Irwin under tho auspices of
tho "21 Club" last night was
enjoyed by an appreciative
audience. Tho great charm of his
work is his perfect naturalness.
Whether ho sets forth tho aged
father, the triumphant lover, or even
the ever present and painfully can
did boy, Mr. Irwin is always perfect
in character, and his renditions
equally finished nnd delightful."
