We notice in the Jennings t]
Times of November 8 the follow- r
ing pointed paragraph: o
WHY NOT A CAMPBELLITE? li
Some days ago at the Gospel a
tent Elder Haddock told why he t
was a Campbelhte. Rev. Smith, a
of the Baptist church, on Sun
day morning will tell why he is
not aCampbellite. It is his inten- t
tion to speak plainly. He does a
not intend to ridicule the Christ- s
ian church, but after what has
been preached at the tent for li
several weeks he feels it only
right that some reply should be 11
In the evening Mr. Smith will
answer some questions asked i
him in a letter he has received S
from a Christian minister. He
intends to base his reply on
From the above it will be seen n
that our Brptist divine, Brother e
Smith, feels honor bound to re- c
ply to one Elder Haddock. It u
may be said to the credit of El- t
der Haddock that he never I
preached a sermon here, or any t
other place, giving his reason for c
being a "Campbleite," but t
I preached a sermon on the "sin of a
being a Campbellite." He also 1
preached a sermon, giving his 1
reasons for being a "Christian c
only," and to this Brother Smith
aims to reply Sunday at 11 o'clock, c
hence Elder Haddock, with his I
congregation, kindly invites 1
Brother Smith to bring his audi- 1
ence and occupy the Gospel tent 4
Sat that time, as all parties are
anxious to hear allhonest reason
ing on such important subjects.
Elder Haddock urges his breth
-ren to meet promptly at 10
Io'clock Lord's day in order to
* vacate the pulpit for Brother
* Smith by 11 o'clock, or if Broth
er Smith will not do that, the
congregation from tent will as
semble at the Baptist church and
prayerfully listen, after which it
may be necessary for Elder Had
dock to preach (Sunday evening)
on why he is "neither a Camp
bellite or a Baptist." Brother
Smith has a cordial invitation to
attend. Yours sincerely,
HUMBLY A CHRISTIAN.

The Water Works Question.
As a respousive chord to an
editorial in this paper on the 5th
inst. The citizens of our enter
prising little city are just now,,
agitating the question of water
works. Our community has out
lived the period when it can fight
a dangerous fire by the means of
abucket brigade and,the question
right now is, "We must have a
system of waterworks." -This
question like all others, is being
thoroughly discussed by our
citizens, and there is quite a diif
erence of opinion as to what tj
the policy to adopt.
•Speaking from a legal stand-. b
point, if our corporation has thlp.
right to do so,the REconR think t;
that the best plan to adopt is to c
strike for municipal ownership. N
Why give a franchise to an in- c
dividual or set of individuals and y
have them reap the profits from F
it, when we can grant ourselves C
the same privilege? If the pro- t
tits go to people who have a fran- n
chise for a certain number of v
years we ask, isn't it a better
policy for our people to own their n
own system of waterworks, and r
be indepemRdedt in the matter. t1
Now is the time to make a f,
move, and let us have a thorough a
understanding in the matter so b
as our taxpayers will not be kept g
in ignorance. t;
