Reply _t Mr. Gongh's Reply.
I learned, as stated in a former article,
:hat before a large promiscuous congregation
Ur. Gough had made certain statements
Nith regard to Mr. Wesley. I called him
>at in print, and from his published an
twer, and not from hearsay, I based my ar
;icle. The quotations proved to be identi
:ai with statements made in Graves's Iron
Wheel. He says he never read the book.
)f course his denial ends the controversy
>n this point. It is however a remarkable
oincidence that Mr. Gough's quotations
;hould agree precisely with Graves's, and
)e arranged in the same order, though tak
m from different books. Mr. Gough is
ertainly following very closely in the foot
teps of this illustrious calumniator of
Mr. Gough, like Mr. Graves did, studies
Mr. Wesley's early history, and searches it
r the expression of views at variance with
~hose known to have been entertained by
Mr. Wesley after he became the founder of
he united societies.
Is it not unfair to attack Mr. Wesley for
he holding of views upon the manner of
iministrating the ordinance of baptism,
pposed to those held and taught by him
iurizg the most important era of his life ?
f Mr. Wesley, while teaching the doctrines
f the church, of which he is the recognized
ounder, did not hold the views ascribed to
im by Mr. Gough-and all persons con
rersant with this feature of Mr. Wesley's
religious belief, know that he did not hold
uch views-then it is a reflection upon the
life, character, and memol'y, of that emi
aent divine to ascribe to him the holding of
uch views, and is calculated to place Mr.
Wesley in a false position with those whose
knowledge of the history of Mr. Wesley's
ife is as limited as that of Mr. Gough.
Suppose I were from my pulpit to ar
raign the Apostle Paul as an enemy of the
hristian religion, and undertake to prove
it by quotations from the New Testament,
showing that, at one time in his life, he
actually persecuted the early Christian
shurch, and securing letters of authority
from the High Priest at Jerusalem, arrested
and cast into prison men and women who
rere Christians. While such are the his
torical facts, would not such a charge and
the garbled excerps supporting it, unac
empaned by the facts in the after life of
Paul-the most important and interesting
part of it-present a most unjustifiable as.
persion of the Apostle's character ? Would
my persistent declaration, that the histori.
e ii facts stated were the exact words of the
Neaw Testament, justify or mitigate the
wrongfulness on my part of such an attack?
Now can it be construed as ingenuous on
the part of Mr. Graves and Mr. Gough to
refer to transactions which occurred in the
early years of Mr. Wesley's ministry at
Savannah, when it is an uindisputed fact,
that years after, Mr. Wesley's views, char.
ater and life-course, were changed, and
that he established two churches, one in
Europe and the other in America, whose
doctrines and government show clearness
f intellect and pureness of heart, free
from the extreme severety of his former
high church views. Like 8t. Paul, he was
onscientious but mistaken and rash in his
Mr. Gough ca t never hope to merit the
esteem of Methodists by making assaults
n the integrity of the founder of Method.
isnm, and though these assaults appear in
indirect form, they, as will appear from
what has already been said, reflect, and un
justly reflect, upon the good name of Mr.
Wesley: they make him out as a man who
held on the subject of baptism opposite
views to the belief he endeavored to incul
cate in others.
Mr. Gough declares he quoted only "Mr.
Wesley's words, which he had a right to
do."~ To prove what? immersion bap
tism ? Why no ! Mr. Giough knows that
he repudiates immersion baptism as pr ac
ticed by Mr. Wesley in both the churches
established by him. Is this a fair argL.
ment? Does it not serve to mislead the
uninformed? Mr. Gough rejects immer
sion baptism as practiced by other denomi
nations of Baptists, as well as by Method
ist churches. Now is this right? Is his
conclusion warranted from his argument?
To prove that immersion is the only cor
rect baptism, and then reject immersion as
practiced b3 all other denominations ex
cept his own, camnot stand the test of jusi
With regard to the proselyting of two of
my young members, I have no reply to
make. The public have my statement and
Mr. Gough's reply. The community is
conversant .with the historical facts con
nected with the case, and their intelligence
and piety can judge between us.
Mr. Gough says, "I have no inclination
to compare my brother to a dog baying the
moon." He misunderstands. I intended
no such comparison. The sentence was as
exclamation of surprise, quoted from~
In allusion to my age, Mr. Gough is
quite pathetic, and rejoices in his own
youth. Will he suffer me to remuind him,
that while youth has its possibilities, it has
its dangers, responsibilities, and uncer.
tainties. "Rejoice," but "remember."
In dismissing this un pleasant controver
sy, I wish to say that I designed no contro
versy with the Baptist church of Manning
or elsewhere. I have a profound regard
for the denomination, and while feeling
called upon to repel an unwarranted attaci
made upon the founder of my church, to
gether with individual actions which I did
not think comported with the love whiel:
Christians should bear toward each other,
it will be my purpose to cherish, as far at
may be, that charity which "suffereth long
and is kind." HE~nY M. MooD,

Geo. T. Rowe Tried and Found Not
The case of the State vs. George T. Rowe,
manager Western Union TIegraph Com
pany at Manning, for obtaining money un
der false pretenses was tried before Trial
Justice Wells to-day and resulted in an ac
quittal of that yonng man by an intelli
gent jury of white men from Sumter, all
well acquainted with, and, no doubt,
friends of Mr, Horace Harby the prosecut
ing witness. The evidence in the case
brought out the following:
Mr. Rowe, in compliance with the re
que t of Mr. J. McLeod, merchant and cot
ton buyer, of Manning, loaned McLeod $40
that he had on band, belonging to him and
the W. U. '. Co. Coming to Sumter on
several occasions he drew severar drafts on
Mr. McLeod. of which two were honored.
On the 18th of November he borrowed
from Mr. H. Harby, of Suniter, $7.00, and
gave him a draft on Mr. McLeod, but when
the draft was presented there were only
$1.50 to his credit, and %ir. McLeod, al
though he had been a -coiwodated by
Rowe, would not pay the difference, $2.50,
and make out the full amount of the draft,
therefore, the draft was returned. There
was no evidence that Mi. Harby ever noti
fied Mr. Rowe of the draft not being paid,
and Mr. Rowe claims that he knew nothing
of itA not being paid until he was arrested.
In addition to drafts drawc upon Mr. Mc
Leod, Rowe had a separate account in the
store for goods, which his mother and fath
er got there, and not being fully posted as
to the amount of.goods taken up in addi
tion to the drafts drawn,- Mr. Rowe says
he was positive that he had at least $7.U0
on hand. The State entirely failed to
prove any intent upon the part of Mr.
Rowe, to defraud or obtain any money un
der false pretenses. Mr. Rowe stated on
the stand that it was his intention to pay
Mr. Harby the $7.00 whether the case
went against him or not, and that if Mr.
Harby hid notified him before his arrest,
he would have paid it then. The jury
after considering the evidence for a very
short whil-, rendered a verdict of not
Mr. Rowe claimed that he was locked up
in Manning jail for ten days and* not al
lowed to give bail, although his friends of
fered bail for him, and that only for Sheriff
Marion Sanders, of Sumter, who went
down there to get another prisoner and
found him in the jail and took him out
and brought him to Sumter when he gave
bond, he would have had to remain in jail
longer. This looks bad for the trial justice
at Manning, if what Mr. Rowe says is true,
and it does not look like he would tell a
lie, knowingly, that the facts will be
brought out. An esplanation is in order
from the authorities in Manning, 'and it
ought to come out, and if it is true the
blame ought to be put on the officer, and if
it is not true it is due the officer that the
charge be refuted. Mr. Rowe says that Mr.
Abe Levi and others offered to go on his
bond, and their offers were refused. Mr.
Levi can be depended to say whether this
is truth or not.-Sumter Item, 11th inst.
THE ROWE TRIAL AGAIN.
A Contradletion and Denial of Some of
the Statements Made.
Editor The Daily Item:-In your issue of
Dec. 11th, I notice that I am charged with
being responsible for George T. Rowe hav
ing remained in jail for ten days without a
case against him being investigated. The
facts in the case are as follows: H. L. B.
Wells, trial justice at Sumter, issued the
warrant for Rowe, lodged it with the sheriff
of Sumter county; he sent it to the sheriff
of Clarendon conty, who I suppose exe
cted it. I had nothing to do with the case,
and knew nothing of Rowe having re
mained in jail so long until since his re
lease. You state further that Mr. Rowe,
says that Mr. Abe Levi and others offered
to go on his bond. I deny positively that
Mr. Abe Levi or any one else ever offered
to me, or in my presence to go on his bond.
Mr. Rowe's friends if he had any, must not
have taken much interest in his case, or I,
and others of the place would have known
of his confinement in jail here, before we
learned it through the columns of your pa
per. Yours very truly,
J. H. Tnmioss,
Trial Justice at Manning.
Manning, S. C., December 11th, 1894.
Editor The Daily Item:-Trial Justice
Timimons, of this place, brought to my of
fice to-day a copy of your paper of the 11th,
inst., and referred me to an article. therein
with these headlines: "Set Free"-"Geo. T.
Rowe Tried and Found Not Guilty." At
the request of Trial Justice Timmons, and
in justace to him, I wish to correct that part~
of the said article which reads as follows:
"Mr. Rowe says that Mr. Abe Levi and
others offered to go on his bond and their
offers were rcfused." I will state that I
never offered to go on Mr. Rowe's bond,
nor was I ever asked by Mr. Rowe, . or any
one in his behalf, to go or- his bond; in~
fact I was not aware of Mr. Rowe being
confined in the jail here until the article
above referred to was handed to me to read
by Mr. Timmons. Yours trulv,
The above statements in reference to the
Rowe case are willingly published, in jus
tice to the parties against whom Rowe
made charges. The article published in
the issue of the I1th instant, was a simple
statement of the facts developed at the trial,
and the statements made by Rowe, and
there was no intention to do injustice to
any one..-Sumnter Item, 15th inst.
