To the Baptists In Particular and
Public In General.
We, the officers of Highland Avenue
Baptist church, desire to answer an
erroneous statement -which was made
through tho columns of the Western
Messenger regarding our acts and do
ings with the Rev. L. H. Mills' ofAt
lanta, Ga. First, we wish to state
that the Rev. Mills was Invited by the
Rev. Bold, pastor, Individually. Tho
Church kne,w nothing of his being In
vited until the Rev. Mills had given
his consent to tome to run a meet
ing at our Church. In due time he
camo and preached nothing less than
tho gospel of the Lord Jesus Christ,
and thereby won tho confidence and
approval of all who heard hip. We
wlsty further to state that according
to rumors circulated we, the board of
officers, havo been maliciously
charged with conspiring with the Rev.
Mills to dethrone the Rev, Boyd, pas
tor, by resorting- to underground work.
We hereby refute the charge, and
stand ready to defend ourselves. Npw,
as to the Rev. .Mills' conduct, we. wish
to state that during the time he
preached for us his conduct was noth
ing less than that or an humble Chris
tian gentleman. ,

It Is of course unfortunate for a
lodge when the idea, gets out that It
U being run by a certain gang or
tllque of brethren who hold nil the
o..ces and usurp all the privileges.
Yet there Is another side to that
question. It Is true In nearly every
cae that the' members of the so
called ring are the only ones who
are regular In their attendance
upon the meetings nnd the only ones
who can be depended upon to do any
real work In the administration
of. Masonry, The casual brother
always busy, when It cornea to work
on committees, visiting the sick.
Iiurylng the dead or even paying his
dues, Were it not for the ring!
sometimes, all these thlngswouUl be
neglected and nothing would be
done. The best way to break up the
gang In the lodge Is to 6ln with It
In the work and your good Influence
will soon .dispel all criticism Jf you
seldom attend the meetings and
pay only desultory attention to th
transactions you must be content
with the way things go on during
