KEY. SETTLES REPLIES.
(Continued from page six.)
kne*v of dealings with Mr. Nettles
which reflected on his integrity. This
man wrote him in reply that he didn't
like Mr. Nettles personally, but that
in all his business dealings with Mr.
Nettles he had found him to be a man
of his word, and that he had always
paid what he owed.
Last spring Mr. Nettles published a
paragraph in the Advocate, which Mr.
Cauthen took offense at. It apparent
ly rankled him, and made him wince.
He then wrote Mr. Nettles threatening
letters about what he would do if Mr.
Xettles didn't apologize. Mr. Nettles
did not apologize. Everywhere Mr.
Nettles went he heard of these rumblings
from Spartanburg. He became
tired of it, and demanded an investigation
of his character by his presidk
ing elder. The time was fixed, and
T the investigation committee assem'
bled. Mr. Nettles wanted each of the
* witnesses brought into the room one
B at a time so that he could properly by
cross-examination determine the truth
r of what they said. Rather than stand
| for this, the Spartanburg contingent
i refused to present their testimony ancl!
returned home. Mr. Cauthen would
not tell Mr. Nettles what charges he |
had against him. He exerted himself!
to keep his case under cover.
Wednesday morning the conferencej
celebrated the holy communion. All
those who were in love and charity i
with their neighbors were responding'
to the blessed invitation and passing i
up the aisle to partake of the ele- j
ments. It was a sacred and solemn
iteioment, when one would think that
R minister of our Lord and Savior
Klesus Christ would have put every
worldly or petty thought from his
r mind and turned toward holy things.
But it was this sacred and solemn
moment which Mr. Cauthen's messenger
chose to hand Mr. Nettles a
copy of the charges which had been
preferred against him.
! There was a reason for this concealment
until the last moment, I
^There must have been a sinister pur-|
Ifcse in it.

Be had to go to trial without a fair
Hhance to prepare his defense or else;
wnand time for that purpose. If he
Hlmanded time it meant temporary
uspension from the ministry because
^rhen a Methodist preacher is under
charges he is automatically suspendBed.
Furthermore, if Mr. Nettles asked
Jfor time, and thereby . became suspended
some one would have to be appointed
temporary editor of the Advo^nte.
Mr. Nettles decided to meet the
^Bsue then and there, and he did.
Mr. Nettles is well known in South
Hirolina where he has lived an honRable
and honored life for 55 years,
psfras done things which he regretV
as has every other man. But
Hre is no blot on his character. He

piratically will be the last

case, so far as the Rev. A. J. Cauthen
is concerned, was given out from the
office of Mr. Cauthen this morning,
i The disclosure of the letter from a
j prominent Spartanburg banker which
I Mr. Nettles, in his comment on the
j case, is alleged to have only extracted
! certain parts, was secured by Mr.
! Cauthen's friends, to be published in
! full in order that an alleged misap!
nrehension might be corrected.
i It is charged that from this letter
; Mr. Nettles in his reply used only
j the paragraph as follows:
| This man (referring to the banker)
| wrote him (referring to Mr. Cauthen)
: in reply that he didn't like Mr. Netj
ties personally, but that in all his
I business dealings with Mr. Nettles he
j had found him to be a man of his
i word and that he had always paid
! what he owed. When Mr. Cauthen's
i friends, who had stood true to him
when the charges were being brought
i against Mr. Nettles, heard that this
; letter referred to had something else
j in it in reference to the accused except
that which was quoted in Mi.
| Nettles' article, chey at once took up
j the matter of securing the full text
i of the letter, which is as follows:
Spartanburg, S. C., Aug. 30, 1913.
T-? A T
rtev. o. v/a.uuu.cix>
Spartanburg, S. C.
Dear Mr. Cauthen: ?
I have carefully read your letter
oZ the 27th, and cannot promise you
that I will be able to attend the next
annual conference to testify in the
matter mentioned therein.
In the first place in all my dealings
with Nettles in business matters I
have never known him to be dishonest.
or to fail to do what he has promised
us. All your paragraph which
was in quotations has been for some
| years here a very common report
[among all circles, except the last
word, dishonest. We do not recall
that this has been specifically charged
against him. In my relations with
him and in his relations here in tne
bank he has been overbearing, obnoxious,
dictatorial, thus rendering
transactions with him especially unpleasant,
and when it is known that
he is a minister of the Gospel, his
general conduct reflects only discredit
upon the church. I would not allow
our church paper to come in my home
so long as a man who would support
the dispensary system was its editor.
As the editorial leader of the thousands
of Methodists of South Carolina,
he is a living source of reproach.
Of this much I would testify before
a committee here or send in the form
o eorwrato nnnpr. or vou are at
vt Ui www V- 7 ?- - ^ ? ? ?
liberty to use this. As I have only
heard the charges you enumerate, save
the "dishonest" charge, and do not
know the facts first hand, my testimony
would be worth nothing. I can
only testify to the general opinion of
the man that prevails here in church
circles, and it is as 1 have stated.
As a church we can not afford to
face the world any longer endorsii^
a man of this type as on'e of our
trusted leaders. He may not be ev;l
in life or in acts, at the same time
the opinion current of him is one that
would cancel any good that he might
en'deavor to accomplish. As a minister
his wings haye been clipped.
These are my candid opinions given
for the good of our church.
Augustus M. Chreitzberg.
Letter to Mr. Chreitzberg.
The letter to Mr. Chreitzberg asking
his opinion of the commercial standing
of Mr. Nettles in Spartanburg,' was
Spartanburg, S. C., Aug. 27, 1913.
Mr. A. M. Chreitzberg,
Spartanburg, S. C.
My Dear Sir and Brother:?
Ir the case of the Church vs. S. A.
Nettles, the following specification is
"It is alleged that the said S. A.
Nettles has, in his business transactions
in Spartanburg and Greenville,
been guilty of practice unbecoming a
minister of the Gospel, for which he
has been severely criticized by leading
business men and by which he
has rendered himself an undesirable
customer; habitually disputing accounts
against him, postponing the
payment of accounts, and in not a few
instances refusing to pay just accounts
until they were placed in the
hands of attorneys for collection, and,
in several instances allowing himself
to be seen in magistrate's courts for
debt. As a result he is spoken of as
unfair, undesirable and dishonest".
You have expressed yourself to me
concerning these matters, but as I
cannot go to conference with simple
verbal expressions of opinion, but
must have something reliable to sustain
me, I write this note to ask:
Suppose you are called upon by a
committee to express to it your opinion
nf the nrvmmPTv>ial standing of Mr.
Nettles in Spartanburg, would you
respond? Would you be able and willing
to testify, that the above specification
expresses about the truth?
I will be glad to get your reply at
earliest convenience as I wish to get
this matter in definite shape.
Yours very truly,
A. J. Cauthen.
In justice to Mr. Cauthen it should
be said that he does not desire to
continue the aftermath of the Nettles
case and this in all probability will
be all he has to say in reference to the
case for the present. He may have to
say something when the appeal is
taken to the general conference, but
until that time he will have nothing
further to say.
X FRIEND TO THE WORKING MAN
Five years ago I was so troubled
with kidney trouble and inflammation
of the bladder that I had to lease
working my farm. Ijfe looked dark
to me until I heard of Dr. Kilmer's
Swamp-Root through a cured friend.
I tried a bottle and began to feel
better at once. After using five or
six bottles I felt fine and (have continued
to work as I had before my
