In this.isftue is printed a reply from
Rev. Crow, P. E-, to our item of last
week concerning the material status of
certain ministers at present and in
times past in charge of the M. E.
Church of Ironton. We do not desire
to make our extended rejoinder to the
Rev. gentleman's communication, and
will only reiterate the statement that
for years past the pastors placed in
their turn in charge of tho church
named have had a hard time in mak
ing temporal ends meet. Rev. Browd
er aid tell Rev. Hurley as follows: "If
I were in your place I would turn my
members over to the Fort Hill Church,
auu jiss-tju io De relieved and given
another charge." Ask Bro. Hurley if
he didn't (By the way, no complaint
has been made to us by Bro. Hurley;
ne Knew nothing of last week's item
uniu u, was primed.) ftlr. tl. did say
within the past three months that he
had received from his Ironton members
just $13.50. Rev. Trimble came here
destitute, sick, and was without the
necessaries to sustain life until reliev
ed by persons outside his church. He
obtained, in the first instance at least.
the money necessary to take him away
from here, from another institution
than the church. We know whereof
we speak. Rev. Hormel, the P. E.
says, reported having recoived, while
here, $400. We know that Mrs. H.,
in that time, taught in the public
school at Annapolis twenty miles
away and ho tried to turn an honest
penny in the way of selling organs.
Rev. Heaton, here before either of the
other named ministers, relieved the
necessities of his condition by teaching
the Graniteville public school. Rev.
Thomas, while in charge, worked in
the blacksmith shop. Beiog "well
taken care of," we presume he did it to
exercise his muscle and kill time all
too slowly passing. Now, all these
people may have been "well taken
care or' by the church; if they were,
was it right for them to filch from the
church the tim9 taken up in their oth
er pursuits? Our first item in this con
nection wa3 inspired by sympathy for
those who we thought we had suffi
cient reason to believe were often in
straightened if not destitute circum
stances. We are glad to know that
this sympathy wa3 wasted, nor do
we regret the substantial manner in
which it may have sometimes been ex
pressed. As to the evangelists' set
time of departure, and the alleged
cause of its alleged putting off, the
gentleman who solicited us for aid may
have been In error, and we are willing
to let it go at that.
Ed. Register For the last ten days
a drovj of cattle has btjen rendezvous
ing on the streets nnd sidewalks around
the courthouse square, readering'them
unsafe at night, and unfit for anyone
to walk on during the day. Ia fact,

owns the cattle? Is there no ordi

Ironton, Nov. 2G, 1394.
Are the Election Laws Violated?
3r. Editor Do you not think it high
time that tho election laws were en
forced against thoso who so persistently
and wilfully violate them?
In the late primary election it said
that, at one precinct at least,and may
hap others, a certain judge took ad
vantage of the illiteracy oi voters oy
going Into tho booth with them to
make out their tickets and afterward
boasted that fifteen or twenty of tbom
voted as he (the said judge) desired
In the general election it is said that
a certain judge would go into the booth
with the elector and there electioneer
expostulate with him to vote for cer
tain candidates. At still another and
important precinct it is stated on good
authority that two judges, a bolting
DamoeraX and a Republican, would take
the ballot boxta into another room
from that in which lh election was
being held and there, away from the
other judges, would examine the bal
lots and cast up the vote.
Is auoh conduct as this what the law
contemplates? and if not will you kind
ly suggest a remedy.toatthe people in
in future may know their rights? X.
Rev. Crow Affirms and Denies.
. Ed. Register. Let me call your at
tention to some incorrect statements in
your notice of "Revival at M. E..
Church," last week; and we hope you
will allow the same to be corrected
through your paper.
The evangelists deny being detained
a day that funds might be raised to
send them away. They just staid
their time, and they were reasonably
well paid for their services. Rev.
Browder says he did not advise the
pastor to disband his church members.
His "good common sense" as a Meth
odist minister would not allow him to
make such a blunder. Rev. Hurley
can have a change in the proper way
when he desires it. The story of star
vation is overdrawn and false, to say
tho least of it. We have before us the
minutes containing the reports of sal
aries received by pastors of the charge
for the last ten years, made out and
signed by the pastors. These reports
show the salaries range for this period
of time from $277 to $qS5, with house
rent free. We admit thesa are small
salaries, but Method ist preachers do
not starve their families even 09 such
Rev. Hormel, the incumbent of last
year, is one mentioned in the article.
He received over $ 400, according to
his own report. Rev. Trimble re
ceived money from the mission fund
to pay his moving expenses. His sick
ness was a misfortune, and the conse
quences of the same could not bo avoid
ed. Rev. Hurley has $300 pledged to
him by the churches of Ironton and
Graniteville, and $30 from the mission
fund. Of those amounts he has re
ceived from the churches for eight
months of the year about $150, and
$60 from the mission fund, and house
rent free, against $13.50 as stated in
thg article. This statement does not
suffer, fcojrever. in comparisou with
11 xl . ...
gard to facts.
. P, E.-can sympathise with poorly
paid pastors, as about all of them
have had some experience along the
same line. The P. E. of the Lebanon
district was the pastor of Ironton
charge two years doing the period of
low average salaries, and the P. E. of
Farmington district had for ten years
a Jike experience.
The Ironton charge receives help
from the missionary fund every year,
along with all other weak charges
and no pastor in the M. E. church
who does his duty need fear of lack of
support during his lime of active ser
vice, or of neglect in old age, or that
if he dies in the work, that his wife
and children will not be cared for.
We hope yon will see that your sour
ces of information in regard to this are
not reliable, and that you will allow
this matter to be set right before the
public. Yours, for truth and fairness
D. M. Crow,
P. E. Farmington District.
Close the School-
Ikoxton, Mo., Nov. 30, 1894.
Ed. Register I heartily acrree with
you in your suggestion last week that
it would be the proper thing to close
the Public Schools for a few weeks
The prevalence of diptheria among the
children seems to make it imperative
on the part of the Board to take this
step as a proper sanitary precaution
.The course of the disease for the past
few months indicates beyond doubt
that it will run through the entire
school before it abates. There is no
place so prolific in propagating this
malady as crowded and poorly venti
lated rooms, l am informed that one
physician at least says it would soon
wear out if the schools were stopped
and children kept from congregating.
Besides,it would be no serious draw-
back to the schools which, if continu
ed, would end the present term the lat
ter part of April; and if stopped for a
month they would close the last of
May, and May is a better school month
than any month between this and that
date. The good of this community de
mands that the schools close and the
Board should govern themselves ac
It disorganizes classes and embar
rasses children to stay out while others
are regular in attendance, and both
parents and children will risk a great
deal rather than have the children fall
behind in their classes. By closing
for a few weeks all risk will be avert
ed and no one injured. Respectfully,
Parent and Patron.
