"KETCHAWLS'FROMEYERYWIIERE "Dost thou spread the sail, throw the apear, lay thy hand upon the plow, attend the furnace door, shepherd the sheep upon the hilla, gather the corn from the fieida, or amite the rock in the quarry? Yet whatever the task, thou art even aa one who twista the thread or throws the ahuttle, weaving the web of life. Ye are all weavera, and Allah the Merciful, doea he not watch by the loom?"?

A REpl.Y TO THE MODERATOR OE THK ADVISORY COUNCIL. Rev. H. V. Waahington must admit that the Council certainly erred in not hearing both aidea. Grant that we were Calvary'a membera, waa it right to condemn and brand us aa disonierly without a hearing? Let any fair-minded man anawer. Would he like to be tried and condemned unheard? When the truth about thiamatter becomea known, aa it will some day, he will regret that he atyled a congregation of baptized believera disonierly, who have never harmed him, but have refrained from telling the public what they can prove about him. It ia neither right nor proper to call an Adviaory Council to conaider difhcul tiea exiating between two Baptial churchea. A Mutual Council ia the proper one. He deaia with the effect of ua organ izing a Baptist church rather than the cauae. He knowa ao little about church government that he ruahea in where angela dare not tread. A body of membera deairing to or ganizea Baptiat church ianot compelled to get the church they leave to organ ize them. Pleaae read Hiacox'a Bap? tiat Church Directory. One hundred diaaatiafied membera in any Baptiat church are too many to re maintherein. If thia ia not an "ap parent neceaaity" then there never waa one. He ia jealoua of our paator's ability and aucceaa. Shame on you to hate a brother miniater becauae of hia scholar ahip and ability! Our paator ought to be commended for accepting our call, rather than con demned. Few men with hia qualinca tiona are ao aelf-aacrificing. He placea the croa8 above the dollar. An evil mind, auch aa youra, will auppoae wrong. We ahow more common aense than Rev. Waahington, in that we want a paator who haa acholarahip and ability to lead ua. He not only poaaea8ea theae qualitiea, but he ia a gentleman. Both white and colored will tell you thia. During the nine yeara he haa been here he haa lived above auapicion. Why do you make thia uncalled for attack on our paator? Are you the same Rev. Waahington who waa sus pended from the Virginia Union Uni veraity for conduct unbeeoming a gen tleman? Our pastor graduated with honor from the above school. You did not. Why? We know with what Chriatian forti tude our pastor haa labored here. If we miatreat him as he haa been mistreated then we ahall not blame him for leav ing. "There ia a limit at which for bearance ceaaea to be a virtue." | Your deciaion doea not bind the Bap tiat hoata of tbia State. We ahall atill puraue the even tenor of our way. Our church has already been aaked to unite withseveral aasociationa. Anent our pastor leaving ua, he re ceived laat Monday a letter requesting him to conaider a call to a church in the weetern part of thia State, which givea a paraonage and paya $700 per year. He haa deciincd to conaider the call, preferring to remain our pastor. He will ahow thia letter to you or any of your frienda. Thia enda the controversy ao far aa we are concerned. Let ua have peace.
