THE NYBLADH CASE.
Bt. Llttdeblad Reviews the Church
taaadal, Defend the Council af Ex
caanraaniration and Make a Liber
Rev. H. O. Lindeblad, pastor of the
Swedish Evangelical Lutheran church of
Molioe, and president of the church
council that excommunicated Rev. Ny
bladh, has written a lengthy letter to the
Galesburg Republiean-Register defending
the action of the church conference in
excommunicating Nybladh. and after
briefly reviewing the case, su bmits a libs
eral proposition. He says:
Giving Nybladh every benefit of any
andeyery doubt, thinking that it would
have been one of the worst crimes of the
many committed on this earth if his story
bad been true: that some of bis fellow
students had plotted against him to ruin
him, as he said one had confessed; and
knowing that such has occurred in the
history of humanity, and that no council
or minuter is infallible, I advised his
friends to have bun appeal to the confer
ence, where his case could again be taken
up ana investigated by impartial judges,
For a long .while he did not inform the
church council of his intention to appeal
to the conference, though be ougbt to
have known tliit such an apieal, and
reasons for the same, thould, according
to the constitution of the congregation, be
left with it one week after the decision is
given to the defendant. Nevertheless, the
church council did not hinder bis appeal
to come before the conference. Tee cun
ference, after investigating the case thor
oughly, and sparing no time in so doing,
reached the conclusion that the church
council had acted christian like, according
to tte the constitution, and had sufficient
reasons for excommunicating Nybladh. It
also confirmed the decision passed by the
council, and expressed its earnest desire
that it would be to Mr. Nybladh's own
and real benefit. These were, in main, the
decisions of the conference. Thus far
about the history of thn dark and sor
rowful case. The council has in its pos
session and good care, two letters from
the girl to Nybladh. left In the hands of
the church council by persons who de
manded that the case should be investi
gated. These letters bav not, as Ny
bladh staled, been stolen from him, but
have, through God's providence, come to
light without anyone doing wrong to
anyone. Besides these, the church coun
cil has a long and comprehensive letter
from Nybladh to the girl. These letters
show plainly the truth. Sworn legal
documents can be obtained and are partly
now In the bands of proper and legal
authority. I have seen the cirl. I know
where she is, and have had a long and
earnest conversation with her. With
these facts before me I make the follow
If the friends and followers of Nybladh
wish to know ttie truth, let them select a
committee of any number of persons,
small or large, as thej r-WRe, who shall
come to Moline and meet with the church
council, read the minutes of the proceed
ings and thoroughly investigate the docu
ments. I will not agree to go to Gales
burg because in due oeason and by request
of proper authority I do so, but Ny
bladh's friends did not then want to hear
the truth from me. I do not deny Ny
bladh's friends from upholding bim bow
evr guilty be may be, but I do in the
name of common justice, deny them the
privilege of wrongfully accusing my
church council and others for doing cod
scientiously, before God and men, their
duty. I have yet twelve or thirteen un
opened letters from Galesburg, and the
senders thereof are welcome to receive
tbem back unopened. I willingly forelve
them for their wrong doing against me.
They did not know either Nybladh or
myself as tbev ought to, or they would
not have done as they did. If the ahove
suggestion is nol satisfactory, or does not
prove my statement of (he cane to be
true, let Nybladh go before any justice of
the peace or notary public and take oath
to hit many-time-given and most em
phatically emphasized statements:
1. That he ha never -pnk-n to the girl on tbe
qneetlon of marryinc hrr. and that abe baa never
epoken to him on tbe aa'jjert.
3. That ba tana never written to her or received
any letters from ber.
8. That ba haa never given mortgage on books
end an organ to bar. the en here in qaeatioo.
4. That ba baa never agreed to pay ber a cer
tain anm of money.
6. That ba du not on that afated day. at tha

Then let a committee of impartial ner
sons be selected who will go go proper
persons and places to investigate legal
documents and acts. Mr. Nybladh's
friends shall agree to pay ail the expenses
if my statements are right and convino
ing; while, if I am wrong, I shall agree
to pay all expenses of such impartial
investigating committee. Is this not
fair! The proceedure I have suggested
will cost very little in comparison to
legal proceedings in tbe United States
court. Let then, the friends of Nybladh
give all the money they would willingly
spend for him in court to tbe poor girl to
help her in ber hard and heartfelt strug
gle to support ber child that she dearlv
loves, though every time she looks into
its face it reminds her of a long, heartfelt
breacb or promise and a great rascality.

An increase of longevity would, indeed,

Tbat extreme tired feeling which Is so dis
tressing and often ao unaccountable In the
spring months, is entirely overcome by Hood's
Sarsaparilla, which tones the whole body,
purifies the blood, cures scrofula and all
bumors, cures dyspepsia, creates an appetite,
rouses the torpid liver, braces up the nerves,
and clears the mind. We solicit a comparison
of Hood's Sarsaparilla with any other blood
purifier In the market for rurlty, economy,
strength, and medicinal merit.
Tired all the Time
"I had no appetite or strength, and felt
tired all the time. I attributed my condition
to scrofulous humor. I had tried several
kinds of medicine without benefit. But as
soon as I had taken half a bottle of Hood's
Sarsaparilla, my appetite was restored, and
my stomach felt better. I have now taken
nearly three bottles, aud I never was so well."

Everybody needs and should tv mu)
spring medicine, for two reasons :
1st, The body Is now more susceptible tc
benefit from medicine than at any other season.
2d, The impurities which have accumulated
In the blood should be expelled, and the sys
tem given tone and strength, before the pros
trating effects of warm weather are felt.
Hood's Sarsaparilla Is the best spring medi
cine. A single trial will convince you of its
supcrloril y. Take It before It Is too late.
The Best Spring Medicine
"I take Hood's Sarsanarilla fnr r.rfn
medicine, and I find it just the thing. It tones
up my system and makes me feci like a differ
ent nun. My wife takes it for dyspepsia, and
she derives treat benefit fmm it si,, o. i,
will, o tl i o 1 b
is the best medicine she ever took." F. C.
Tdrxee, Hook & Ladder Xo. 1, Boston, Mass.
"Last spring I was troubled with boils,
caused by my blood being out of order. Two
bottles of Hood s Sarsaparilla cured me. I
can recommend it to all troubled with affec
tions of the blood." J. Schoch, Peoria, 111.
