Tws Clrlt In Disr.
Last Saturday night, two young
girls neither over 17 years of age,
were found by the police wander
ing about the streets of Scranton.
They were from Stroudsburg, and
had left their homos because they
.had heard that work was plenty and
wages good in that place. Before
leaving home they foil in with a
young man, a stranger, who was
anxious to attaint them, and told them
to go to Scranton where they would
meet a friend of his who would take
them to a place where he had se
cured positions' for them as wait
resses. Accordingly they went, and
were met at the tepot in Scranton
by a man who said he was to take
them to their places. He took them
to a certain house, but in a few
momenta they discovered its chare
ter and left, and were soon after
found on tha street and taken to po
lice head quarters. They did not
know either of the strangers and in
fact Daid so little attention to their
appearance that they could not give
to the polk any dtillnite description.
It is doubtful if the girls gave their
right names as inquiry develops the
tact that there is no one by the
names given residing in btrouus
knrcr. TUay had a narrow escape, and it
should be a warning to all young
girls not to plaoe ooniidenoe in those
with whom they have no acquain
tance.

ble. Layton N. J. March 9. 18SW.
Mil. ElHTOic There has been consider
able said in the newspapers concerning the,
clu.ich tioubles In Sandyston township,
Sussex county, N. J. In your issue of
Match th, you speak of the arrest of Mi.
John V. Major and myself, on complaint
of Francis Layton, for breaking windows
in the church, and the lock on the door of
same. We very much regret that two of
our nelghlxr In company with the so
called Kcv. Clyde W. IX'iuing appeared
before a Justice of the Peace, that they
then and there came to the conclusion that
we were so maliciously Inclined, that one
of the said neighbors, was induced through
the persuasions of this Rev. Drilling to
make the aflldavit that procured the war
rant which caused our arrest. We very
much dlsllko to appear before the reading
public as maliciously Inclined criminals,
but we patiently await the verdict of the
court which we believe will be our vindica
tion. In the same Issue of your paper you
Bay the difficulty seems to have arisen from
a circular letter of political Import. This
circular letter was the outcome of other
causes, which primarily led up to the pre
sent difficulties. I wish to submit to you
the following theories, propositions, and
facts, which I ask you in justice to pub
lish. .
That you may the better understand the
matter, I here state that the difficulty
started as a purely ministerial scandal
months before It became known that the
said J. J. Vanslckle was a candidate for
office. It has now developed into a bitter,
political, ministerial, church scandal.
Briefly as follows. About the last of J une
18HR, rumor said the Rov. Clyde W. Dent
ing, who Is pastor over what Is known as
the Halucsvllle and Ccntrevllle charges,
was guilty of unbecoming Intimacy with
the opposite sex.
On July 5th this Rev. Demlng together
with a lawyer a prominent divine from
Newton N. J., with a certain trustee of
this chargc.procetHlcd to the home of a cer
tain lady, who was iilono with her mother,
and under the pressure of certain promi
ses mado to this lady, obtained from her an
aflildavit completely exhonerating it Is said
this Rev. Dvinlngs and herself of all blame
and guilt. An open letter was then writ
ten by this divine from Newton N. J., and
addressed to the people of this charge say
ing a certain John J. Vanslckle, had mali
ciously slandered Rev. Clyde W. Demlng.
On tho following Sunday this letter was
read In the Ccntrevllle church, and a state
ment made by the accused pastor from the
pulpit. Soon after rumor had discovered
that this statement was apparently false,
other stories began to circulate of a very
damaging character to the pastor's hereto-
fur good name In he meantime the pastor
who had employed a lawyer, was very as
siduous In collecting evidence, of which
be said he already had an abundance, with
which he would severely blister Mr. Van
slckle Sometime after another letter was
received from this Newton Divine by the
pastor, calling a halt. In a short time
afterward, no more evldenoe was collected.
Thin It was rumored that the church
board of officers were about to appear on
the scene, and as a unit commence pro
ceedings for slander against the said Mr.
Vanslckle. Following close upou this
rumor, the pastor oouvcued the board.
A carefully written document was offered
to the board for their signatures thereto.
This papm was signed by all the male
members but two. One of the two was ab
sent. This document adroitly transferred
the responsibility of prosecution from the-1
pastor's shoulders, and now presumably
depends upon the will and action of the
board. As a member of that board I here
assort that the prosecution Is tabled alto
gether, and that no action was ever in
tended by the pastor, for In the earliest
stage of the scandal, a challenge was
thrown directly in the face of pastor Dcm-
lng's lawyer, daring hlin to serve the pap
ers on John J. Vansickle. A death like
silence on the part of the prosecutors now
prevailed. It was Mimored that Mr. Van
slckle had bought off the pastor for a thou
sand or so. But following these events,
new charges were flung diroutly la the face
of pastor Demlngs, together with a chal
lenge daring hlin to proceed against Mr.
Vausickle. The two members of the board
who had not signed the document, earnest
ly urgvd Utelr pastor to prosecute Mr. Van
slckle. Yet no action was taken. The
Hat had gone forth. The truce amid these
threatened hostilities would now have been
complete, but for the murmurs against the
way the pastor had allowed matters to drop
after his so many threatcniugs of prosecu
tion. A few days before the November
election this already notorious " open let
ter " to the people of the charge, was prin
ted, and sown broadcast by the U. S. Mulls
over Sussex County, to which was ap
pended an appeal, akiug the people to cast
their votes against this John J- Vanslckle,
who lutd now beumie a DeuuMiratui candi
date for election as member of the House
of Assembly of the State of New Jersey,
By this act It was uudoubutbly expected
to transfer the scandal case from the social
to the political arena. I have always tried
to do my own thinking and acting. Orig
inally a Republican dyed In the wool. For
about ten years have voted the prohibition
ticket: So you see I was In no way Interes
ts In Mr. Vanslckle politically ; There
fore be had never told me he was a candi
date, nor bad he ever asked me to vote for
him.' When this, last day election letter
appeard on the political arena, at once I
openly announced my Intention to vote for
Mr. Vanslckle.
This letter has no political parent. The
political party In whose Interest It was
printed refuse to own It. They are justly
ashamed of It, as a member of the M. S.
Church, so am I. For the benefit of those
who may be Interested to know, I am em
powered to say, that John V. Major Is a
democrat, yet he was politically hostile to
Mr. Vanslckle, and did not cast his vote for
him at the last November election: I men
tion these our personal political affinities
to show that the two persons, Mr. John V.
Major and myself who as will be shown
prefern'd the charges against our pastor,
were of the opposite opinion concerning Mr.
Vansleklo's political aspirations. There
fore with us this Is not a political contest.
Yet this Is not the rule. It will be found
almost Invariably that the supporters of
Mr. Demlngs are the political opposers of
Mr. Vanslckle, and the political support
ers of Mr. Vanslckle are the opposers of
Mr. Demlngs: These things ought not to
he. As a remedy let me suggest the fol-
iwlng. Let the church adherents of Mr.
Dcming.nnd the political opponents of Mr.
Vanslckle, who composo one party In the
present difficulty, and let the political ad
herent of Mr. Vanslckle, and the church
opponents of Mr. Demlngs who compose
the other party, and who have each formod
an alliance to sustain or crush the politi
cal aspirations of Mr. Vanslckle, divorce
the scandal question from the political
question, then let the political question of
Mr. Vanslckle stand or fall on Its merits or
demerits: also let the scandal case of Mr.
Demlngs stand or full on Its merits or de
merits, then tell each party to base Its
opinions on facts, not prejudice, nor per
sonalities. Take up these merits of the
case, throw aside politics and personal dif
ficulties. Let us be united In fighting our
common enemy and settle our personal
difficulties In a friendly and christian way
between ourselves. Then those who
are not christians settle your political dif
ficulties in a friendly manner at the polls
by your votes. We can then as a church
free ourselves of the political blot, and
with united efforts acquit ourselves of the
charge of winking at social Impurity and
spiritual wickedness In high places.
Let us have no more last day election let
ters. If as christians you take this course
to bring the church Into politics, don't
find fault If the world by reason of this
your conduct, forces Its politics Into and
upon the church.
For fully three months after the scandal
was first published, John V. Majors and
myself had stood by our pastor as true
patriots. Then we found that he had
made several statements concerning the
scandal, which we believed to be untrue.
We asked him to explain these apparent
inconsistencies, and charges, which not
only concerned bis own welfare, but the
welfare of the church and the whole com
munity. I know you will not allow me
space for the details of our many talks,
which did not result satisfactory. Relat
ing to these talks be thereby accused me
of unchristian conduct towards him, as he
was my pastor. Then I asked him to pre
fer charges against me, and have me tried
for this unchristian conduot before a
proper and unbiased tribunal as the trial
might throw some light on his own trou
ble, at the same time telling him that I
would not think unkind for so doing. But
he refused to bring the charges. Then I
told my pastor I would bring charges
against him. When instanterl The fat
at once was to the are. On Deo. S3, 1896
at the quarterly puuferenoe, then assent
bled at the MontAgue M, K. unuren,
charges were preferred Involving my paa
tor as before stated as follows i Unbecom
ing Intimacy with the opposite sex; lying or
untruthful statements both public and pri
vate; anger towards member of the
churoh; unchristian oonducti neglect of
duty as a minister of the gospel; talking
to the world about members of the church,
and church matters, that only the church
should know first. These charges were
signed by John V. Major and myself, both
of us trustees and stewards of the church.
The presiding elder, Rev. Sanford Van-
Benschoten was In the chair. He said the
affidavit of the lady convinced him that our
pastor was Innocent. After some discus
sion, and other business which was dis
posed of, the conference adjourned.
No action has been taken, the charges
have been lgnoroel, phurch discipline has
been disregarded. Since the conference
every occasion has been Improved and ta
ken by my pastor, to vilify myself and
others who had now become his ppposers.
By the action at the pmtidlng elder, and
the advantages possessed by my pastor, by
reason of his vocation, I have been persis
tently placed before the public as a trad
uoer of my pastor, as a maker of false ac
cusations against him.
I am anxious to have this matter settled
in a christian manner, but I do not believe
any person Is required to become a partner
In guilt, to accomplish a holy end. In a
letter to the presiding elder of Jan. 17th I
offered to become financially responsible
tut prosecuting Mr, Yaush'kUt for slander
ing the pastor. I her renew the off or, ad
ding that upon demand, I will at once de-
piett In the hands of responsible parties,

seventy-five dollars, It being ,the amount
of subscriptions In my hands for that pur
pose. And further I hereby agree to, and
will bind myself In legal bond to Increase
that amount to two hundred dollars If ne
cessary, provided all nf the amount or as
much as Is needed of the same Is to lie paid
to the pastor, upon, the conviction of Mr.
Vanslckle In our Sussex, county court. 1
only want'what Is rlglit.lie it!Mr. Drmlngi
or Mr. Vanslckle who Is doomed to suffer.
Now please note that we have asked for the
prosecution of Mr. Vanslckle agreeing to
pay all expenses if he Is found guilty. We
have asked for the trial of Mr. Doming on
the charges before ecclesiastical tribunal,
that we have asked Mr. Demlngs to prefer
charges against us fur unchristian conduct
towards him, that a few days ago we nskinl
Nelson Depne, a memlier of our church
board to prefer charges against us for slan
dering and falsely accusing our pastor, all
of which favors have been denied us. We
are painfully aware that If our charges are
true our pastor Is a very guilty man, which
guilt seriously Involves others, if our
charges are untrue we are guilty as his
false accusers. In view of these facts we
claim that we are entitled to the privileges
and rights guaranteed to us by our church
discipline, together with tho customs and
usages of a Republican form of govern
ment. Now Mr. Editor, I am somewhat
bewildered as to where right ends ami
wrong commences, I am told by some that
It Is better to cover up the offences of the
clergy than to expose them. That some
how or other their sins should be absorbed
by the laity that this method of absorp
tion would make the people better and
save disgrace on tho church and profession.
I am told that It Is better to swallow this
camel of Iniquity to save or prevent the
coming of the gnat of disgrace, now would
It not bo better to put your foot upon this
gnat, crushing it nt once, and thus avoid
the necessity of swallowing tho camel. I
would like to know if It Is more honorable
to see how far one may enter into the
whirlpool of sin.
Before he will expose himself to the cer
tainty of the danger of being dashed over
the precipice of eternity across tho abyss
Into the pit of eternal damnation, than It
Is to see how far ono may keep away from
that whirlpool of sin and destruction.
Come, my friends, let us reason .together,
let us look at all these matters lu their
true light. If you think my acts towards
my pastor have been wrong, won't you
please bring charge against me, In proper
form, before an impartial tribunal. I am
tired of seeing you play hide and seek, con
cerning matters which affect the welfare
of the wholo church, I am disgustod with
the many methods of evasion which you
have adopted to accomplish your ends. Let
every person answer, and be held responsi
ble for his own acts. Let overy question
stand or fall by Its merits or demerits. Do
not allow yourselves to appropriate,
a aseapegnat the life and person of an
other Individual of your own church and
oommunlty. Therefore I ask you to re
lease me from the ban which you have. Im
posed upon me, but I do not want that re
lease until the aforesaid charges have been
preferred agalust me. Now my friends, I
appeal to you again, don't condemn your
pastor until you find him guilty. Neither
condemn me as a false accuser, until we
have both een heard and given a fair trial.
I brought charges first against my pastor.
But you may now bring charges against
me and try me first, again I say I only
want what Is right. I am convinced of the
truth of oertaln questions. You may not
bo oonvlnoed, yet you may be mistaken,
you refuse to take the necessary steps to
ascertain the truth. Some of you refuse to
allow me even a moment of your atten
tion. You make your oompluint, yet you
won't allow me to meet you and refute
them. Is this fair. Is It right. Train up
on us both, your ecclesiastical cannon,
filled to the muxzle with pure gospel shot.
Do not use the adulterated soft, or white
washing kinds. Let this Bible weapon,
the two edged-sword be freely used, which
Is made the more effective If by common
sense applied, John Young.
