TOO MUCH CHURCH Say Some People Near Epworth—Mr. Corkran Talk*. A communication appeared in the Morning News this morning signed by "Several Neighbors" in relation to the services at Epworth Church at Tenth and Church streets. The letter says : "They have held nightly meetings, and any one knows what Methodist meetings are. There is no chance for any one to sleep, sick or well, nightly till 11 or 12 o'clock and sometimes later. They have meetings every night with few exceptions aud three times on Sun day. We have stood this about as long as we possibly can without complaint, hut now thought it was about time to make complaint. » * * * And an other thing, you can't go by the church on any night without there'is a crowd of young boys and girls standing on the corners of either Church street or Ben net street, aud when they see a police man coming they go in the church very quickly. If the boys are alone it is not safe for either married or single women going by there without being insulted." Rev. D. H. Corkran was seen by a re , porter of the Evening Journal in rela tion to the above. He said: "We pay little attention to such matters as that. Our congregations are dismissed not later than 9.15 o'clock each night. These people who are complaining have been talking in that manner for months. At present we hold prayer and class meetings through the week, just like all other M. E. churches.
