imprvi.n artfully that we knew of

own mind waa clear as to the conrse to

aiight do, I should defend myself be
fore my own people and the commun

bad reputation a to vencity. I did
: not chanse the Obtcrver at my mediam

any other papur of ourchnich bccnua

Memphis ArnkL hecanre ii came
nearer to reaching the class amongst
wliem ths a'ander had been cficnlated
.haa any other medium of comma ni
Jitlon i f which I have knowledge. In
doing this I did not intend to indorse
either tbe religion or the the
levy of the Aipkal. I
do not understand that I indorse
verj thing about a paper, or any
other eiiiuin of public communica
tion or I'ansportation, a mply because
luieit. I published (together with
Dn. Bogita Hud Martin) a cwd in the
AMiiLd October 12, 1RH5, making
known the fact tiiat the Chiutxan 04

distinctly mei.tior.ed to thoae gentle
inen thwu that if the Converses de
manded a trial tbev ought to have it.
and that if I publithed the card I
should feel myself under oblinatirn to
put the matter before Louisville Proa
fcytery In Itgal form if the Mcasra.
Converse a'ked me to do it.
The reply of the Metais. Converso
to this card (Memphis Apfial, Ot-to-bur
20, 1886) was a denial of the fct
aliened and a challenge to produce
proof, b'aid ply is in evidence.
Upon demand, I published tbe proof
required in the Meniphie A phial of
Woveraber 1, 1886. tfaid prnofa con
aia(d of tatiors from c'ippinga of
the papers of our church, which clip
pinga I now put in evidence. I ob
tiiued thtm from Dr. Wood row. Dr.
Boggs told me that Dr. Wondrow had
them, and I wrote to Dr. Woodrow lor
them. He did not volunteer to aend
them, oor did he directly or indirectly
advise their publication. As far as I
now remember, ha sent them to me
without ncte or comment or writing of
any kind.
Among the clipping received by
me waa one which, in type and gen
eral style, bwe to my miod evidence
ol coming from tho Southwitern 7Vi
eylM'an. I was moially otrtsin that it
waa a c'lppii g frr-m that paper. Yet,
as the taniH rf the paper wis not
o;on it, I published it and credited it
to "A Presby:erin Papr r." I sect it
aubseqnently ti Dr. Hml'h, and he. in
an ediu riHl, publiclv avowed it as bis,
and dtfndd every allegation in it.
fcaid editorial is her. with tubmitted.
Dr Smith never returned the clipping
to me.
Hot has Dr. Woodrow anything to
do with initiating this proeerution.
After, or dnring the coneppondence
In the Art1 sal I met him at the Synod

the possible prr secutlon. In tbe pres

row discouraged me from the under

the lireomBtances nt excitement in

Dr. Woodrow's relation to us in tbe

ile did net suggest or advise, no far ai
I remember, the circulation of the ar

K. to review that article I
do not remember tbe fact.
I w. uli not have liesicated to dn
so, however, If 1 had wanted to. I
testify tbat I did not know what he
wns gung to write, and I did not then,
and do not now, hold rayeelf in any
wy respomlbte for tbe utterances of
editors of secular newspapers. What
ever part of t'ol. Keating's article do
fended Dr. Woodrow'a rght to trial
bbfora conviction I did thun, and do
cow, heartily iadurse. Whatever part
of it reflected upon the Presbyterian
Ohurch or any of ber doctrines I did
ri.it then indorse and do not cow.
Whatever part of it ws fptrulatli n
upi n evolution came from his brain
and pen and not mino,either by sugges

of it furnished a weapon for a brother
to use sgunet Dr. Maitio, or Dr.
Bogga, nr myself, I, of course, deeply
doplored, not as a thing for which we
were responsible, but for somirthing
for which it was possible fur
la represent as responsible. I did not
rreetany part of the editorial of Mr.
Kiatli.r for these reaiors: First. I do
not deem it wise, rrdinarily, to run a
tilt against the ed tor of a secular
newspaper, especially about such mat
ters ai evolution and predestination.
JL nan given nobody octagon to thiuk
that I believed In evolution. I bad
given all tbo worUJUo kcowWor fteu
years thai I am a sworn believer in
predestination. I did not expect t' at
Ool. Keallng'a statement as to e tlu r
of those thioifi would be regarded ai
Ojuelneive. I'ariinnlary fexceptat the
hands of tbe most malicious), I could
not hava ihcught, and did not think,
tVnt Ms edi'oriai wcnld be, in whole
or in pa t, tnndi tbe basla of a widely
circulated Blunder to the t fleet that I
was cognisi&t of, or in sympathy with,
a tcuem to spin iub ctiuroh, which
now tenlily I have a' ways been loyal

and their advice to their pastors has

should controvert lecular editors in the
oolumns of their own papers as little as
poesiniei ana ibis, especially, when
the doctrines of theology are to be
discussed, whole volumes being re

are naiiy outspoken, and for years,
everywhere, have preached ths doc

that it waa impossible for him to bs

tainly wv did not dream tbat any of
our uretnren ta unrtst, without con
sulting u, would publi.ih as as achls
matics beoaneelof what Ool. KeaHnar
had said. I testify that my only rea
son, so far as I remember, tor consult
ing Dr. Martin as to the advisab'eoeas
ol correcting anything in Mr. Keit
Ing'a article, was my fear that a disin
genuous opponent, such as I know tbe
vourver to ds, might, ai I said to him
' make capital out of iu" . ..
. un tne so called evolution contro
versy, my portion is this: Ood wrote
the book of Nature. The same God
wrote the book of Revelation, Uod
will not contradict Himself.; Aicer
tained truth in nature will never con
tradict ascertained truth in revelation.
dm man, as interpreter of these two
bocks, is fallible, and makes many
miaiikes. There hava been many
false interpretttions of nature ard
many of tbe Iiib e. But truth in one
never contradicts truth In the other
never ran. I believe that there are
many d flerent theories aa to evolu
tion. Krery one of those forms which
contradicts the Script area la false.
Everything nrcesiitaiina atheism ia
certainly falsa. Everything .denying
God aa universal Creator la falae.
Everything denying God's revealed
mode of creation is false, as well aa
everything denying the fact of Ilia
creation. I can conceive that there
may be a theory of evolution which

have never tried to lores the church
to tolera'e evolution as a reorgn z d

my opinions ai t? Dr. Woidrow s
rights in sny fao ious way, and never
expect to do so. I am a luwabit ing

The idea of the "teceaeiju " of the fol

tain k'lowledge, spoke of only a "pns
Bible secesrion in bis editonai.
and of tbat p s4Mlity, even, only as
an miorenceoi his own nuud. I nave
never heard cf any "plan" or
"scheme" to "disnipi" tbe church; I
am in no euch comp any of sohmn-jrs,
and I regard all such jntimation of
tha', kind as malicious nonsanee.
mirg from a paper th t claims tbe
protection of the Presbyterian Church,
and assumes to represent her. it is
slander in ita relation to me, and, to
tne test of my knowledge snd be ief,
misrpr6Eentative of the church,
which never authouzjd said paper to

as to Iheg'nsral rennUtion of these
aetenaants, 1 t.stity: i( 1 know
the general reputxtion of any
man is to veracity, l know theirs.
Truth upon oth compels me to lay
tnat it ia Dad. l will explain mv a ate.
ment and the sourt cn give it own
value to nif te stimony.' , In the fi st
pace, I understand byamansrepu

bis gord naa.o. In the tccond place,
anen l say mei a mun i general repu
tation ' is bad, I mean that his good
name i, a a picture m ght be. so
blurred end marred tnat no mind sen

ing the facts, cnu'd say th it it is good
uo not mean tbat over the reputation
nere may not bs mtuy epots ft
leaanfsi and brlghtiiens, nor do I
mean that tboso may not in extent of
suriace exceed tne oi oi coven d with
ur.i, but tbat, taking the r putation
i a whole, including: fairnS3 and
blackneee, it Is substantially a Tuiutd
reputation. I hnve no hesitation to
declarvt thai, in that seuee, the r puts
tion of thise de'oniie us ia bad, as to
veracitv. For vea s I linve heard the
Btra ghtforwardatss snd truthfulness
ol onenrtLe other, cr both cf ihm,
cil ed in queetioa. I have eeneraliv
heurd them asiociated, and Bpoken cf
ss ' tne uonversea. ' 1 nave heard thia
talk, as to their repu'ation for truth,
from Virginia, North Carolina, Sou'h
(Jnrolina, Georgia, flonda, Alabama,
MisMstppi, Louisiana. Ti x as. Arkan
(as, Kentucky and Tennessee, and am
ready to give names, if demsnded. I
have beard talk of tbat kind from pri
vate members of our churcb, from
elders, from mtnittere, fiorn their lei
low citissns, aod from their fellow
Presbyters. Names are ready if called
tor. un tne otner s ae, 1 nave heard
very many speak favorably of them.
and say tbev never heard aught sgainet
their truthfulness. I have found tbat
a large number of these people do not
know them personally; hava read reg
ularly no papers but theirs, snd are not
acqua'nted witn their arauamtances.
With this explanation I am compelled
to say that to the best of my knowl
edge and belief, their general repata
tation as to veracity ia bad, asa blurred
picture wouia be.
. -1 now cone to testily as to tbe pa

must aver that it Is not good. Here,
again, i eiaim tne privilege of explan

they hava had personal - controversial

tbe tf stimony of many, whose names
