Dr. Kelley preached two very
strong sermons at the First Metho
dist Church last Sunday morning
anu evening. At the morning ser
vice he chose for his text the Irtth
verse of the lfith chapter of Mat
they;"AndI say unto thee, that
thou art Peter; and upon this rock
I will build my church, and the
gates of hell shall not prevail against
it." He also read in connection
with his text, the (Jth verse of the
5th chapter of 1st Corinthians:
Know ye not that n little leaven
leaveneth the wholb lump?" In the
evening his reading was from the
13th chapter of Matthew, the para
ble of the wheat and the tales. The
argument of both discourses was the
duty of the church to discipline un
worthy member, lest a "little
leaven should leaven the whole
lump." The sermons were sugges
tive of future action on that line.
Wm. Anderson preached a very
strong gospel sermon to a large and
appreciative audience at Mallard on
the 27th Inst., from Roman's 1-16:
"For 1 am not ashamed of the gos
pel of Christ; for it is the power of
Ood unto salvation to every one
that believeth ; to the Jews first,
and also to the Greek." In connec
tion with this he read from Mark
16 15 and 16; "And he said unto
them, go ye Into all the world and
preach the gospel to every creature;
He that believeth and is baptized.
shall be saved ; but he that believeth
not, shall be damned."
Rev. S. L. McCarty, who has been
preaching at the Presbyterian
Church at Williamsport for some
months past, has accepted a call to
the pastorate of the Second Presby
terian Church of this city. He will
reside in Columbia and preach here

of fines and costs which he had col

that $25 should be taken out of r.is sal

K. H. G t'KsT Witness stated that,

placed on t ;e stand.
Mr. Latta stated that he was elected
City Marshal in November, 18:), and
was policeman from .ovember i89o to
that date. The "lot" of wagons spoken
of in the charges was simply one
wagon. While acting as policeman he
ran two wairons, hut never while on
duty did he consume any of his time
with them. He would frequently go to
tnedcpni, wniie on duty, and spend an
hour lookinu after them, nut this in no
wise inte fered with his official duty
When he was elected City Marshal he
disposed of one of the wagons, know
ing that he could not then devote any
of his time to them; and he had a driver
who k new the business and could at
tend to it for him. Often while making
his rounds he would stop in at the de
pot and pump factory and speak to
them concerning his wagon. In regard
to the payments on the debt he owed
the city, he said that he had had sick
ness iu his family aud was in straight
ened circumstances, and had asked
Mr. Ash ton to let hi in skip several of

J. B. Ash ton. Witness stated that
he was Chairman of the Finance Com
mittee on the old Board. He, with the
consentof the committee, had allowed

the many dangerous ailments
