LEFT THE CHURCH.
The Read-Zrdlker ScatBdal laBBgrr
Caacrraathe First Baptist .f Ma
!!. Dr. J. C. H. Read and Miss Lotta Zed
iker, about whom tbere has been so much
persistent scandal, took the action of the
First Baptist church meeting at Moline
Wednesday evening, which was probably
best calcnlated to stop tbe controversy
and dissension, so far as the church was
concerned. Their action was to with
draw from the church without letters.
Mr. Read read a statement declaring
tbat-tue scandal at Grand Island was got
ten up and kept alive by certain of
bis enemies at that place; and also in
tffecttbatit was arduously circulated
here by certain persons who regarded
him for some reason or other with the
same dislike that his enemies at Grand
Island did. At the conclusion Dr. Read
asked that tbe church should drop his
name from its roll of membership, and
that a letter should be issued
to Mrs. Read. lie did not ask
a letter tor nimeeir. tie re
quested that this action be taken without
discussion or comment. A motion to
this effect was made, and commented
upon. Tbere was a disposition on the
part of some of those present to ventilate
the scandal, probably with the view of a
church trial. But ail attempts to bring
in the scandal while this motion was
under consideration were ruled out of
order by Pastor Parker, who was acting
as moderator. Finally the motion to
drop Mr. Read's name without discussion,
and to issue a letter to Mrs. Read, pre
vailed. Then J. F. Zediker made a statement
somewhat similar to Mr. Read's, and
aiked that the name of his daughter,
Lotta. be dropped from the roll, as Mr.
Read's had been, without discussion, and
that letters be issued to himself and all
the otaer numbers of his family. This
met with the same opposition as the first
proposiilia had, but it finally prevailed.
Of couree ibis does not hush up tbe scan
dal, or settle anything one way or other,
but it removes it from tbe church, and it
is co longer a matter to cause dissensions
in the church.
T&e marriage of Henry A. Taylor, of
Redfield, S. Dak., and Miss Louise FrU
berg was soleunized, at Moline Wednes
day evening and the Dispatch thus de

The company numbered some 60 guests

ushers. George T. Mickie and John H.
Samuels; next came the groom's best

The Rev. C. L. Morgan, facing the

away by her father. After the ceremoiy

An Important Bill.
In the Wisconsin legislature the other
cay the Taylor Chippewa river boom
snd dam bill was introduced. A dis
I atch to the Chicago Herald says of it:
Tbe bill grants power to State Treas
urer Uunner and ethers to erect and main
tiio a dam in tbat river near au Claire
and Chippewa Falls, where the Weyer
tauser company now has control. Mr.
Taylor explained that the Weyerhauser
corporation had since 1S78 controlled the
legging interests on the Chippewa riyer
aad had robbed the pineries without pay
it g a tax and to tbe detriment of the in.
tt rests of towns along that river. The
p-esent bill was in tbe interest of poor
nen, and would help to ;ui!d up a coun
try which has been devastated by a
powerful trust. The bill went through.
