ther publication was suspended,
a short time, before the meeting
of the State ' Council of Ohio,t
its annual session,1 at Salem
Church, Franklin county, Oiio,
October g), A. D, J8( , ,
At this session of the Coancil
it was determined to organize a
Joint Stock Company, fiif the
purpose of" publishing the hris
tian Witness, Sabbath 4 School
Books, a Sunday SchooPaper,
a Hymn Book and ot?er publi
cations in the interft of the
Christian Union ar a pure
Christianity; and. a committee
was, therefore, appoirjtecl to re
port a plan for the organization
of such a company The com
mittee made a report on -: the
subject which was aiopted. A
committee of five werj appointed
by the Council, to oiganize such
company under the lu.w of Ohio,
on tho basis of said report Said
committee were instiicted in the
organization of sail company,
and in the adoption'of its rules
and regulations, to amply secure
and protect the Christian Union
publishing interest The State
Council was to appoint the ed
itor, and he was to nave the sole
charge, .of , the .church paper, and
all other of our 'publications, and
over . the : matter;1, (if ' the - paper,
and said other pubneatfons ; and
said company : was', to have no
control over said editor,7 who
was to bo amenable tp," and re
movable by the State (Council of
Ubro until ' such'; time - as the
State . Council of Oh io Wight see
fit and , proper- tqtffvsfiiv said
publisliing lnterest over to' "The
General Council, of the' Christian
Union." Said 'company ' was to
pay the editor such' 'compensation
as. he" and the company'might
agree upon.;; -Such company was
to publish ; and-furnp i for the
Christian Union' all" Its papers,
books and other ' printing, at the
usual rates forWk piblications.
The' company was tot have the
financial management of its af
fairs, and receive and 'control all
moneys accruing frohj' the publi
cation of said papersj books, &c,
and be liable for. all ,debts con
tracted and divide the profits
pro rata among the stockholders.
lhe company was to appoint all
its officers, manage its business,
and issue said .'publications', and
do said printing at suchplace as
said compaiiy might deem for its
host interest. v ' .
The establishment, aforesaid,
purchased of Sister Given, the
committee aforesaid" were di
rected and . instructed to turn
over i into the , hands of said
company at its invoiced value, to
be ascertained by two competent
persons,; to be owned and held
by tho ObrifUttit Uuivu as ett
much stock in said company,
and in its transfer the committee,
were instructed to arrange with
said company for those subscri
bers who had paid for the paper
while in the hands of 'the Pub
lishing Committee. i ; t.
On this ' basis said company
was to bej organized. A com
pany was therefore organized,
called "The Christian ; Onion
Printing and Publishing Associ
ation." This company commenced
the publication of the Christian
Witness, and continued its pub
lication until the 24th of July
last, wheir4t suspended the pub
lication of the paper.

The above report of the pub

Now, in view of this action of

matter of the, most . unbounded
surprise, that on the. 20th day of
November, A. .U lo7z, a paper
etyljod 'Tjeo3 CiiRi8TUN,Wmw
is issued at Columbus, Ohio, with
a notice, that "all letters on bu
siness i or otherwise, should be
addressed, and all subscriptions
or other money, sent by Post
office order or draft, to Christian
WrrNESS, Columbus, Ohio," and
a request "that all ministers in
the Christian Union send tts"
(who is us ?) "their Post-office
address that we" ; (who is we ? )
"may send them a copy of the
paper. . We will be glad t6' have
a short letter from each one for
the ' paper, giving briefly - such
facts in connection with their
work as wll be jof general inter

is the following communication,

"By A. P, Bqb, T re as. and Pre, pro tm,"
: The above communication has
been copied in full, that the im
pudence . and audacity of the
thing might he the more appar
ent, It is in utter contempt ol
the State Council of Ohio, and
the action of the Council at its
last session, set forth aJJove. , It
is very manifest from whence all
this proceeds, and that it is an
effort to stop the publication oi
the paper by Brother Bowen
but it will' not succeed. 1ns
movement is toithout authority and
without responsibility, and . de
serves the severest censure and
condemnation, and doubtless will
receive it The above communi
cation is in utter contempt, also,
of the action of the State Coun
cil of Ohio, at its session, at Sa
lem Church, Franklin county,
Ohio, October 20, 1869, above
referred to. The Christian Wit
ness, with all its books and pa
pers, is the property of the Chris
tian Union, and not of said As
sociation. Said Association .was
authorized under the action oi
said State Council to publish,
for the Christian Union, all its
books, papers, &c, charging no
more than the customary price
for such publications. The State
Council of Ohio was to appoint
the editor, and he was to have the
sole charge of , the Church paper,
and all other of our. publications,
and over the matter of the paper,
and said other publications-; and
said company was' to have no
control over said editor, who was
to be amenable to, and remova
ble by, , the State Council of
Ohio, until such time as . the
State Council of Ohio might see
fit and proper to transfer said
publishing , interest , over to the
General Council, which has since
been done. ",. , : . i
. Yet, in the face of all. this,
this association (which has failed
to publish the Witness) has 'had
the audacity . to hand over the
Witness and . all its books und
papers (and without authority,)
to a new ; arrangement , Who
orach? this low airuuffjuoat, octl
who are the parties to it, and
what is this new arrangement,
and " its responsibility, and who
is to handle the money ?
. An'd,agaih,we"'are'. told that
'a few old-time friends of the
"Witness and the cause of Chris
tian ; Union '.. have 'come forward
and arranged for its permanent
issue, and that they have ar
ranged witli Mrs, Mattie Given
Pilcher, the devout, intellectual
and i cultivated daughter , of the
founder of the
Rev., James F. Given (a married
woman, in poor health, with the
cares-of a household upon her, a
resident of the State of Kansas
how shallow all this) to edit
the paper.' ; : V
By what authority is Jt that
these old-time .friends, as. they
call themselves, have taken; upon
themselves; thua . to appoint an
editor for a paper that don't be
long to themj and over which
they have no control t" The Pub
lishing Committee of the General
Council and the Publishing Com
mittee of the 1 State Council of
Ohio, acting in' concert with the
Committee of the General Coun
cil, have the papeY ici their care
and keeping,' ana are not able to
appreciate such Meddling, and
do ereby 'Utterly repudiate it.
The paper already has an' editor,
and the ., services of Mrs, Mattie
Gjven Pilcher are not needed.
.,: As soon as the arrangements
can be, made, the Committee ap
pointed to contract with Brother
Bowen for the publication of the
Witness, will enter into a writ
ten contract to publish the same
as aforesaid ; and he is ready to
give ample security for the publi
cation of the v paper in accord
ance with his written" proposi
tions above, as soon as said sum
of $700 is raised, to fill the un
expired subscriptions now exist
ing against the Witness, for sub
scription money received by said
Association and for which i the
Association has failed to issue
the paper. ' ' ; '.
If, therelore,. our ministerial
brethren and friends will go to
work, and get up the said sum
of money (which can be easily
done by contributions without
bearing hard on" any 'one) at
ice, and .forward the same to
the undersigned at Lancaster,
Fairfield ' county, 1 Ohio, (as
Brother, Rose, from the position
he has taken in his above com
munication would, no doubt, feel
that he could ' not consistently
receive the money,) the Witness
wUl Jbe published at once, in su
perior style, and enlarged to a
32 column paper. The under
signed will be responsible for all
moneys forwarded him, and will
send receipts- immediately on
getting the money.
