THAT "COWARDLY RETREAT."
I thank tho Hcrnid for mentioning
that ".Mr. Sturgeon's oninmunloation
might bo only his side." It is true
that I consented to dlscumtho Sahbnth
question without the light or history
ot my chool house Tills I did be-
cauioMr. S. had objected publicly and
privately to my bringing history to
bear on that particular suoject nnd
y et ho makes great display of suah his.
tory as docs not bother his theories.
Two of tho dlrootnrs for reasons that
will probably appear In a coming dl
vorce case objected .Mr S. proposed
to get thn people to ovcr-rldo their
authority but they rcpoclcd tho gen-
tinmen too much to do so Then I pur
posed to draw tho centleman to accept
history and scripture both and alto tti
have a fuller discussion.
Among1 tho many houses offered fot
tho purpose I ehnio Mountain Vlow as
It was the largpft and would sent
tho most people cumfortobly So in
order to bring out n fuller nml clearer
diiUUBsion )! tho matter I nttnnunced
publicly the following series of leo
tures. "Seventh Day Adventism Ex-
posed to tho Light both of Scrlptilro
and History. Lectures to commence
at Mountain View Hiptlst churah on
Sunday evening February 8 10H
Any gentleman wishing to champion
the oppolto side shall have privilege
of half time." Mr S. announced Over
tho phono that hu would bo thora. He
came over tho next day to dissuade me
from tho proposition. Notwithstand-
ing it hud been befoic tho people for
thrco weeks he claimed it was not
clear. I dually told Mm that I would
write out a Berles of nfllrmatives.
"Resolved That Seventh Day Ad-
ventism is Unscrlptural First in lis
origin; Second In lU contradictory
doctrines; Third in its fillso Prophet;
Fourth in its Seventh Day Sabbath;
Fifth In holding (hat nil that consti
tutes man is unconscious from death
till tho resurreoilnn ; Sixth in denying
that the punishment uf tho wicked
will bo eternal."
Accordingly the peoplo nsjomblcd to
hear the subject discussed the subject
of course that had been before them
for several weeks' Mr S. came but
what for? To meet those awful allega-
tions against his church? Not that!
Then what do jou suppose he came
for? Simply to take tho valuable time
from the proposed lectures to tell us
why lie would prefer somo other sub-
ject and that hu suro was not going to
defend his churnh against those which
tho people had come to hear After
extending him the courtesy of n num-
ber of remarks whloli were all out of
order ono of thn deacons arose lie
nnnounced the subject of the lectures
Jpr which the people had come and as
Mr Sturgeon had undertaken to rldo
over the privileges of thu church bo-
fore ho demanded tint ho "sign up or
shut up" nnd accordingly tho pastor
proceeded to tho leclnns which con-
tinued 11 vo nights. Why would Mr
Sturgeon refuttj to tntet nnd exposo
thote awful allegations against his
ciurcb? Was it not a "cowardly re-
