4. I THE PUBLIC F03UM (Editorials by Our Headers.) KEV. n. J. MIXOKT REPLIES. To the conqueror, preserver, protec tor of the po;iee and peneral welfare of .Alliance and Po Butte county, the Reverend A. J. K earns. Pear Archie: I "was astounded at the lack of judg ment you revealed in your epochal article. I shall not drag the ministry in the mire ot muck as the old-fashioned political ward heelers use to do. I had hoped that brand of public men had died and pone to their reward, .lut I was mistaken. In answer to the column and a half xt muckraking, and knowing the value of newspaper space as I do, I shall just tell a story or two. The story of the tase Abraham Lincoln won goes as follows: A man was charged with 'Mealing a cow. Lincoln wa3 retained to defend him. The prosecutor spoke for three hours and a half trying to fecure conviction. Mr. Lincoln pot up and in the following words began: 'Gentlemen of the jury, the learned counsel has consumed three hours or more in charges, but charges are not proofs. He took three hours to say nothing; I shall follow his example and .submit the case without argument." Lincoln then sat down w ithout another word. The jury saw the point and an acquittal was the result. I al?o might say that charges are not proofs, and will say nothing, as nothing needs be said, since no proof is offered. The public is the jury, and Jod is the judge. I am willing to abide iby their verdict. Again, when a boy my stepfather 'Jbought me a rifle. 1 went out to try it, and upon a hill about a half mile or so away, there were three hounds. I didn't believe the rifle could reach that far, but just to see how near I could get to them, I pointed the rifle In that direction and fired. I aimed at no particular one, but I could see and hear which was hit by the noise he imade. Sympathetically yours, I am, B. J. MINORT.

To the Editor of The Herald: We, the official board of the First Baptist church of Alliance, Neb., read with regret and indignation the article by the Rev. A. J. Kearns in the Open Forum of last Friday's issue. We feel that no good purpose could be served by replying to it. We stand to the man behind the Rev. B. J. Minort, our pas tor, and are willing to let the residents cf Alliance and vicinity be our judge, and the future success, or otherwise, of the church, be their verdict. , (Signed) CHAS. H. FULLER, A.

MITCHELL. A UNION MAN'S IDEAS. ALLIANCE, Jan. 9 To the Editor of The Herald. Dear Sir: As a .read er of your paper, will you please allow Tne space in your "Public Forum" to answer Mr. Kearn's attack on union men, hidden under the cloak of taking .stock what Mr. Minort has accomplish ed in one year, I will state for myself that he made me go to church and ho never asked me whether I have a union card or not, but I do have one, and I jro to his church. Mr. Kearns has had that opportunity for the last four years not only to ask me, but ask all other union men. Has he done it? No. There is a reason. When you look a little further you will find where his salary comes, and that alone explains why he did not open his church to labor. In closing I will say that I hope it is true what Mr. Kearns states about having a union card in order to come before St. Peter, as I believe he will cure have to have one. A UNION MEMBER. (Not a Baptist) CHURCH OF CHRIST. Sunday school still growing, and cspe already in the past and eight other days of service having gone, bring to our minds the fact that time waits for no one. The question is, how have we spent this time? The church services have been well attended. A house full has greeted the minister at both morn ing and evening worship. But let us remember that the Christ must be ex tolled in our life and as the three dis ciples on the mount of transfiguration saw Jesus only that this should be our experience. Each service will be more worshipful if parents Will keep an eye on their children and see that they are not disturbing the meeting by unJ necessary actions. If children are pres ent without their parents some person, perhaps a Sunday school teacher could sit with them and keep them quiet We want the many children to come to the services but we must also insist that all come in the spirit of worship. The mid-week meeting on Wednesday even ing is well attended and the results are what we expect. We pray for a year of the greatest service in imitating the divine graces of charity, benevol ence, unselfishness and loyalty. We were happy to greet many new faces at worship last Lord's day and again we invite you to come to the church with a message and a welcome. S. J. EPLER, Minister. BAPTIST CHURCH. Sunday school still grwtng, and espe cially the men's class. This most im i portant class promises to worry us 'about room. However, we will find i room if we have to meet in the entire parsonage, many men wno nave never been to Bible school have asked the pastor to prepare several extra sheets of lessons. We study especially les sons by the pastor. Next Sunday's lea son is, "Citizenship; or the Christian in Politics." We try to study the Bible from a man's standpoint, with application, not of yesterday's or to morrow's problems, but to the burning questions of today. We are headed for 250 in Bible school, shall we have it Sunday? 208 now. The house was more than full at the evening service Sunday, and full at the morning. The Lord has a way of making the wrath of men to work out to his glory. Next Sunday an all day service will be held, with dinner for all who wish to come and eat with us. Bring your basket and we will mix it all together, and have a grand old time. I cnoir practice at Airs. l. u. Laing s Thursday evening at 7:30. Prayer meeting Wednesday. Hard time social Thursday evening by the B. Y. P. U. ' . Junior social Friday evening. A dinner of the trustees and deacons and wives was enjoyed Monday night at the church, at which the 1922 goals for the church were discussed. It was one of the most interesting meetings we have had. B. J. MINORT, Pastor. Adjusted compensation Imitation for ex-service men, the so-called bonus bill, will be passed by Congress during the next two months Is the word that come from Washington through the American Ixfrion. The administration i.4 still thought to bo adverse to the measure's passage at this time, but in the opinion of those back of the lord ney McCumber bill the popular senti ment in its favor is sufficient to force it through by March 11. Increasing distress among the veterans is be lieved to have accelerated the move ment. National Commander Hanford Mac Nider went to the capital after the Foch tour December 10 to open the fight in congress. The commander, with Daniel F. Steck and John Thomas Taylor, chairman of the national legis lative committee, called on Secretary cf ,War, Weeks and Secretary of the Navy Denby, after which a c;dl was made on the President, where the sit uation was talked over informally. Conferences were also had with the backers of the bill in the Senate and House and both Senator McCumber and Congressman Fordney assured the Legion head that the measure would be in full effect on the date already set, July f, 1922. The house ways and moans commit tee adjusted compensation committee will take up business immediately af ter the holidays, according to Chair man Fordney. The primary concern of the committee will be to determine how funds for the bonus are to be raised. Parents and wives of Americans who died overseas during the world war and those whose bodies have not been returned would have the opportunity to visit the graves of their d"ceased at government expense in a resolution in troduced into congress by Rep. Hamil ton Fish, New York, a member of the American Legion. The resolution di rects the Secretary of War to provide transportation to American cemeter ies overseas. MACHINISTS PASS RESOLUTIONS ALLIANCE, Neb., Jan. 9 When conditions have reached such a deplor able state tnat ministers, oi certain churches of our city have become so affected and carried away by jealousy i and envy, and have gone so far as to j assail through the press and from the pulpits one of their number, who, by fiis actions and honest efforts, has proved himself to be a real man, and who has taken an active interest in those things which tend toward the betterment and uplifting of humanity, and who believes that the right of those who toil to enjoy the full extent cf the wealth created by their labor is a natural right and that those who toil should make use of their citizen ship intelligenty, therefore, be it Resolved, By Lodge No. 602, 1. A. of Machinists, with malice toward none and charity toward all, that we con demn the scurrillous attack upon the Rev. B. J. Minort and consider it to be an affront toward organized labor in jfneral, made by one who so far for gets his sacred calling as to be used as a tool and mere pawn of elements an tagonistic; and be it further Resolved, That a copy of these reso lutions be presented to Rev. B. J. Minort as an expression of our con fidence and faith in him and in the sincerity of his purpose, and that a copy be tendered the Alliance Times and the Alliance Herald, for publica tion. Done this 9th day of January at the Labor Temple, by Lodge No. 602, In ternational Association of Machinists. (Signed) COMMITTEE.

" 13 The following letter was received by the Adjutant of the Omaha post from a Legion member out in the state, and it shows the appreciation of the ex service men receiving relief from the state aid fund. We who enjoy pros perity cannot sympathize with this man until we have really seen some of the dark side of life. Thi3 fund has been a real blessing to this man and it should make the state of Nebraska oroud that it has such a fund to be used for such cases a3 these: "Harry Hough, Dear Sir: I hereby gratefully acknowledge the receipt of your letter containing a check for fifty dollars in reply to our appeal for help from the emergency fund for ex-service men of Nebraska. Our little daughter and son too, if he were ola enough to under stand join me in extending our heart felt thanks for this help as it came at a time even worse than we had looked for as Mr. was out of work and I had been sick in bed for a week with out any heat in my room and insuf ficient clothing and bedding. "When our daughter saw the check, she clapped her hands and cried' 'Mamma it proves two of those Sun; day school songs you and I sing so much ("Just When I Need Him Most" and "God Will Take Care of You" ) ' Tears come now as I think of the way she went around the house singing and speaking of how much happier she was than when she got up in the morning. Mr. came home that night with a promise of a new place and indeed the dark clouds were turned inside out for us and we would have answered sooner but was busy getting moved and I was unable to do much in the bargain," Resolve to Save e Make this your New Year's Resolution.
