DR. DILLE IS READY
TO GIVE NAME
Will vDisclose/ Identity of
Milliner He Accused to
Women Wh^Vill Aid
DEPRECATES^ UPEOAR
Jan. 31.— The uproar
raised; by the_ milliners of Oakland
against Rev. E. R. Dllle, pastor of the
First Methodist Church, over his as
sertion that a milliner of this city had
urged . underpaid employes to barter
their womanhood, -Is decried by f .he
clergyman as ''senseless." \u25a0\u25a0\u25a0'\u25a0: ' . '..
Dr: pille returned today from St.
Helena, where he had been rusticating
fpr : ten days;.. He declares that the ser
mon, utterances by him embracing the
statement' concerning an unnamed mil
liner-had : been "warped out of their
j true prbpprtlpns." He . believes that
j the.fur Pre was raised for political pur
poses,;.; that the milliner Incident was
created.- in. brder to' distract attention
from.a n: attack he; made In the same j
discpurse: upon v civic, conditions, to]
which' he .excepted. : . . \u25a0 :. :. : . \u25a0" .'... ;
' ; In.^short,: the pastor says his passing j
remarks concerning; the. milliner who i
would advise young women tfo sell their
; virtue was by no means the essential
element of his discourse. .; :
V Dr^. pllle asserts he will : •: stand by
what he said in relation to the rqilllner
and her workwomen. He is still pre
pared to ". '-; reveal the : identity of that
person, but: only under the. original
conditions, namely. : that the secret be
disclosed .to such- women as: \u25a0 might
prove : themselves /Interested In*' the
girls' : welf are. •'.' . ' ';.
