PLANS 10 80S! EX-PASTOR’S EOES — Deacon Demott Is Not the Only j Marked Man in Mt. Pleasant Church Unpleasantness. That George R. Demott, the deacon of the Mount Pleasant Baptist Church, who was asked to resign from his office. Is not the sole target of the •'Lumbardlte” faction of the church, became known toda-y. A prominent member of the church stated that since the middle of Decemter there has been a movement on foot to oust at least a half-dosen of the "antis,” and that this will bo accomplished In the near future. It is expected that at the meeting next Tuesday night the resignation of Mr. Demott ns a deacon will again be asked, and If he does not comply with the request his name will be dropped from the church books. The same will bo done to the others who are objec tionable to the friends of the former pastor, the Rev. W. T. S. Lumbar. To Oust “Troubte-Mnker*." The members of the ladles' guild have Investigated the sentiment of the congregation and have reported that the majority Is in favor of ousting the deacon from his office and asking the other "trouble-makers” to resign. They also say that the letters which the deacons have In their possession, and which bear the signature of the former pastor, are not of an Indecent charac ter, and that the anonymous letters have not been written by Mr. Lumbar, and that he never admitted writing them. This Is in direct contradlclton to the statements made by the trustees of the church, who say that Mr. Lumbar did acknowledge writing the letters, which are unfit for publication. Mr. Lumbar, 1 tls said, is now in Newark and will remain heVe until there Is a possibility of his presence being needed by his friends The trip to Canada, says a “Lumbarlte,” will be delayed un'tll the entire matter Is cleared and the church restored to hat inony. Can Drop Deneon. It was explained that although the deacons are In favor of Mr. Demott remaining an officer, the church as a body will demand bis resignation nevertheless, and that his name can be dropped without the consent of the officers. Theodore 8. Beardsley is at the head of the “Lumbarites” and Is backed. It is said, by a majority of the women members. This hears out the state ment of the “antis,” who say that the fepiale portion of the congregation have caused the fresh outbreak Mr. Demott’s resignation Is demand ed because of his Indiscretion In «n k ing about the Mt. Pleasant Church af fairs In the Prospect Street Baptist Church, In East Orange. He declares that he was Justified In doing so be causc the pastor of the church, the Rev. Mr Holden, asked him to verify the statements that appeared In a newspaper. In which Mr Lumbar was charged with misconduct by the Rev J. B. Phillips, then preaching In the East Orange church. Mr. Demott further says that at the time he spoke he did not know of the presence of out siders In the church. HOLLY BEACH TO HAVE EOOO-FOOH OCEAN PIER.

SMITH FAVORED IN MORRISTOWN. MORRISTOWN. Jan. 19—Many prominent men here and throughout the county have signed a widely-cir culated petition urging the election of former United Slates Senator Smth to succeed John Kean. The petition Is meeting with great favor and already it has practically as many signatures hb the total vote cast for .lumen E. Marline at the primary.
