lu tho Teller of tho 2nd of April
and also in the Xez Perce Rews, of
that date, appears an ardclo entitled
"Communicated,'' in which assertions
and insinuations arc made so tar at vari
ance with tho facts a, to give the impres
sion that the writer was not acquainted
with the matter of which ha wrote, or
(hat being' acquainted he desired to ere
»to an unjust prejudice against one re
joua association to which he is not
friendly, for the purpose of building up
another iu which ho is personally inter
est cd.
In speaking of tho Young Men's
Chiistian Association he says: "Much
to the regret of some, another similar or
ganization has been effected in town."
The other similar organization referred
to ia undoubtedly tho Young Men and
Woman's Christain Association,* which
meets in the M. E. Church every Sun
day atternoon, and Monday evening
As officers of that organization wo desire
to make a statement of the facts in the
case. This lias been suggested as proper
by some not connected with our associa
tion who havo told us that tho article re
ferred to is doing us an injury. It will
appear to some as a strange announce
ment that any one interested in Christian
work should, in this country, where free
dom cf thought and action is guaranteed
to all, regret the formation of a Christian
association for tho benefit of young men
und women for the reason that there also
exists in the same town u similar organi
zation for the benefit of young men aloue,
Such regrets could hardly be entertained
in the generous spirit of q broad Christian
liberality. Wo think that those interest
ed iu such mutters should rather rejcice
that these means of diffusing Chris
tian intelligence should bo so multi
plied and diversified as to make them
congenial and accessible to all. It is to
be deplored that any should »eck to
build up tho one at the expense of the
other. It seems to us especially out of
place that anyone not connected with a
society should seek through the public
print or otherwise to inform the public
as to who are welcome to their meetings.
If such an announcement is needed let it
come from those autnorized to speak for
the society and not from those inimical to
its success. Tho intimation is made in
the communicated article that our associ
ation is intruding itself into a field a)
ready occupied. To do away with the
prejudice Which this intimation seems in
tended to create, wo respectfully make
the following statement and refer to
names und dates in order that our com
munication may be clearly understood. -
About a year ago Miss Corabel Tarr,
then in Chicago, wrote to her father, the
president of Lewis Collegiate Institute, at
the request of Mr. L. D. Wishard,
national seerteary of the Young Men's
College Christian Association, asking
whether a branch of that society eould
not he organized here. Tho letter
received was shown to the Rev. T. M.
Boyd, pastor of the Presbyterian church,
in this city, and its object generally ap
proved by that < hriatiau gentleman. In
October, 1884, Miss Tarr, having be
come connected with the institute as a
teacher, organized the movement among
the young people and a committee was
appointed to correspond and secure the
constitution of that association and all
necessary information. In November of
the sam»-year the constitutions wero re
ceived and distributed among the young
people for inspection. During the holi
days of 1884 tho organization was so far
developed that it was decided to elect of
ficers and make the association perma
nent as voon as the services of the week
of prayer of 1885 were closed. In the
mean time the Misses Tarr had frequent
conversations with Mr. Boyd in which
the matter was referred to and its ob
jects and methods discussed and
pluined and near the dose of the meet
ings held last winter in the Presbyterian
church, iu one of these conversations he
asked for, and received, a copy of the
printed constitution and by-laws which
the young ladies bad procured, and said
that he thought of organizing a similar
society fur young men. These conver
satiuns were had in the most kindly and
fraternal spirit. Mr. Boyd did not inti
mate that the two contemplated organi
zations should unite, nor did he intimate,
either, to the young ladies from whom he
obtained the constitution, or to tho pastor
of the M. E. Church, that any co-opera
tion of the two churches was desired or
expected, in his contemplated organiza
tion.
STATEMENT.
in
It
in
It so happened that both societies
organized oo tho tame Sunday. Th«
Young Men's Christian Association in
the afternoon and the Young Men and
Woman's Association in tho stoning;
the on« professedly for the benefit of
young men and the other for both young
men and ladies. The Young Men and
Woman's Christian Association, h it
true, had its inoeption with the students
in the institute but its.rales and regula
tions were such that anyone who symps
sized with its objects was entitled to
membership. Any and all residents of
the city or sojourners therein have always
been invited to join tho asadeistion and
have always been welcome to its mootings.
It will thus bo soon that so tor Atom our
association intruding itself into fields aL
ready occupied, it was rosily the pioneer
in the movement and was substantially nt
work before any similar organisation had
its existsnoe in our eity. It is intimated
iu tho communicated artiole that wo
should not allow our organisation to in
terfère in soy way with ths other similar
ono. No ebriatian association should al
low themselves to become rivals to other
similar ones, excepting it be a Christian
and friendly rivalry in well doing. There
are, however, substantial reasons whywn
should continue our labors as wo have
commenced them. It is stated iu tho
communicated article that at some of the
gatherings of the Young 'Men's Chris
tian Association given for their benefit»
the playing of cards was introduood and
that serious objections had been mads to
this. We have no criticism to offer on
the management of any Christian associa
tion outside of our own. Wo take it for
granted that they are doing the best they
can. As to our own organisation; the
Young Men and Woman's Christian As
sociation, considering the toot that it had
its origin with the students and that the
scholars in the institute naturally connect
themselves with it, we have not felt at
liberty to countenance sueh games and
amusements at its social gathering!, os
an of n doubtful moral character, or that
Christian parents would object to intro
ducing into their families. While many
believe that card playing and dancing arc
entirely innocent, there nre others who
think thorn but the stepping stones to M
knowludged vices, and we feel that it
would be a ssd memory to think that a
young man or woman bad learned to
play his or her first game of cards, or to
dance fur the first time at a social or re
ligious meeting of a Christian association.
We doubt whether Christian parents,
sending their children out from their own
firesides, where these amusements have
not been known, and whose conscientious
convictions are that they are not morally
hcathful, bat, on the oobtrary, are par
nil-bus, morally and spiritually, to the
welfare of their children, would desire to
have us merge our eaistanoe into one
where these amusements are indulged in.
For these reasons, while wa do not
in any way eritisise the actions of others,
who ara seekiug to do Christian work, we
have felt that we ought not to renounce
our own organisation, and that we ought
not to be censured by others, especially
professing Christians, for doing our duty
as we undentfand . it.
Wo sincerely deprecate the necessity
that calls for this communication. The
communicated article ia anonymous and
we can therefore do no more than oon
jectuie as to its authorship. We feel
that if the one who wrote it had simply
consulted Mr. Boyd, to whom is chiefly
accredited the work, and influence of the
Young Men's Christian Association, and
ascertained the facts, be would have
learned trom him that there woa no
foundation for the inflection cast upon
our association.
We deem it better to avoid public
controversy and in the spirit of charity
fraternal sympathy, carry on the good
work for which we are laboring. The
unchristian world will attribute such ar
ticles to jealousy rather than a sincere
Christian endeavor to disseminate the
principles of Christ. Let us avoid them.
