religion of humanity spreading Itself naturally toward the many harmonizing softening tho say age nature and making men become humane and charitable Love Is the Burden of all of Natures Odes It is heard In tho song of the awak ening birds when the sunlight smites the woods with fire and they strain their warbling throats to record their hymns and chant their carols blest It Is heard in the wild feet of the elfin wind dancing and prancing mid the forest boughs in the fret and fall of the millstream as oer bar and bank it brawls in boisterous glee in the galo which curls the lakes bright lips and lifts a deeper purer water to tho light In the purl and splash of tho rivulet speeding sparkling through dark woodlands as if a naiads silvery feet glanced through the star beams on a calm summer night in the marriage of the flowers which spot the meadows and fringe tho brooksido with strands of dla monds and of pearls in tho sighing winds when summer has exchanged her robes of greeu aird rrayed herself In gorgeous tints of gold and pur plef when all the trees hay rco1I1ttfset corn nod and bend in the moaning blast when winter whistles through numb fingers and the drowsy snow blows In great drifts across the flowers in the crackle of the fire and the roar of the chimney In the merriment of the hearth around which fireside affections as purely blend as a cloudless blue sky with tho lisp of babe in the lullaby song in laughter and tears in social glee in song of ploughboy in the sym phony of the composer In the hum of industry in the tramp of progress In the cadence of night winds in tho anthem of the cataract in the deep water in the high air and In the els of the earth Love is the condition and employment of all things Love Is first lovo is last love is best lovo

emotions which brings not on ly individuals but all the human fam ily together in ties of fellowship and concord which inspires friendship confidence and a union of Interests which leads the strong to

gracious ends This is love Tho father loves to give his off sprng education and opportunities never known to himself Nations love to bequeath strength and power to the generations which follow From love of justice men go to battle and die It is lovo In some form or other which actuates leads and compels men to higher things- It Is love which Immortalizes gen ius which leads man to hope to live

Convicted of Being Accessory to the Killing of Two Children and May Hang Valdosta Ga July 31ThQ Rev J Rawlins yesterday was found guilty as accessory to tho murder of two children of the Rev and Mrs W L Carter and unless a higher court Intervenes Rawlins and his sons ton and Jesse and Alf Moore a negro will have to hang Tho Rawlins sons and Moore wero found guilty of the murder some time ago Both Rawlins and Carter were for years ministers In the Methodist church A feud started and Rawlins plotted to wipe out tho Carter family It was arranged that Moore and Mil ton Jesse and Leonard Rawlins wero to go to the Carter home and kill tho fitablewere to be shot down The assassins jarrived after the evening meal and 1could not shoot through the windows jfamiderers spoke and the girl fell deadiThe boy shot through tho body drag ged himself Into the house and told who had done the firing 1 All night long Mr and Mrs Carter crouched In their home Through crovlces In the log house the Carters could see the assassins creeping about the yard but whether their daughterarwas dead or not they could not learn Finally Carter reached his rifle and fired through a crack In the door Tho shot caused the murderers to flee Moore confessed the plot I have seen In another Infidel paper n r what troort It uocsnu print the crimes of preachers Illl1cablopurpose better and happier and in this pur ipose am opposed by preachers whouteach that Christianity is the onlyithing that makes people better and in torder to sustain my contention I have to show tho crimes of preachers- claim that the newspapers show that preachers commit more crimes in proportion to numbers than any class of people in the world- do not take nay pains to find theso newspaper reports and do not print all I see and only print those about preachers because my paper is not large enough to print even a short notice of the crimes of prominent lay Christians If In Lexington any editor lawyer doctor professor or any man in high standing had committed such a crime as tho preacher Rawlins has been guilty of tho whole United States would know about it but it is so com mon for preachers to commit crimes that a case like this does not oven create a comment I will give you a sample of Christian crlmo In Lexington among people who are not preach ers A young man went with his mother to tho old Main Street Campbelllte church and joined the church and was baptized that night While his hair was still wet from the baptism he left his mother and went in the night to the room of a negro woman having first gone to a saloon and drank whisky and gotten a tol The husband of the woman camo n on tho two in her rom and the young man shot him and killed him Tho young man ran and going through the dark a clothes line knocked off his hat with his name in It The hat was found and the man was thus detected and captured Ho was tried and acquitted His father was a bank cashier and superintendent of a Campbelllto Sunday school In order to protect his son ho stole a largo amount of money from the bank and was put In tho penitentiary for two years for It Another officer in tho bank also a Christian stole the balance of the money and ran away leaving his beautiful wife and chil dren and is gono until this day Continued on Fourth pagej p fi A COMMUNIOATION Editor JournalA number of artl cles have appeared during recent weeks In the Dally Register In which a gentleman who delights In the cog nomen Professional Defender of argulIosition that It Is as tho doctrinaire of japhilosophy avowed by antlChrlstianI and essentially antlf Paine is either attacked or defended j7 that his private character is a matter of interest only as it may bear as t proof of tho practicability or imprac ticability of that philosophy as ex f amplified in tho life of its apostle t that as his theological works being the real cause of interest In him con uponithim partakes of the form and spirit of attack on that system that Chris tianity being in possession and an at vz tack upon it being If to any purpose rc tatall necessarily a showing of causes iwhy it should bo dispossessed and sup planted by another system therefore tho burden of proof rests upon these who whether ncmnally defenders or not contovert its right to posses f sion By all fair rules of controversy I k had a right if this is a true statement of the case to insist upon his as sum f ing the onus probandi Neverthe less I have gone beyond my need in f that regard and have met such objec tions as were raised even by Impllca tion Courtesy seemed to suggest elaboration to show if for no otherI reason that I had argument as w- elwas statement not that I grant that it devolves upon one defending Chris tianity to step up and show at the call kof every manJack reasons why the church should remain in possession In tho course of those answers I of fered proofs from various historians such as Jared Sparks and President 4 Roosevelt and others as to how Paine and his work were viewed by many of his contemporaries of undoubted probity I offered proof that Paines writings contributed and tho reason worship of which ho was a votary caused the reign of terror In France tho most unnatural Impracticable and dreadful experiment in government of twhich hum nna account Iou prtSil the y ity had accomplished more for the amelioration of human society than has been known outside its pale I offered proof that human liberty has approached a perfection under Its gui Iidance unknown by men without Its I offered proof of tho util ity as well as of the truth of such dogmas as were brought into question and sought to correct erroneous his t i tory introduced with whatever want Itofrelevancy In my opinion the proofs which I i1offered on these points were If not complete at least sufficient to meet t tho emergency which called them t forth My attention has been called to a bIcommunication in your Issuo of the it seems to me my i friend evinces a desire to continue the controversy in tho columns of the summary of what has gone before misleads In Its imputations that I deal In slander that his swers have been sufficient and that he has demolished or is capable of de molishing the Bible by dint of glib ness of style and statement I desire traspace to say that tho Journal willing accept the challenge If such ho means it to be In doing so however shall make a more serious business of It than heretofore I nave done and shall in sist upon all the rights of my post tion of defense I shall insist upon him assuming the burden of proof and shall expect him to furnish the basis 0ofcontroversy not by calling upon to prove things that have been prov tfen by numberless writers in all the centuries since Christ founded Ills church out by showing his reasons y for wishing that church out of the way and how he would have the world guide itself in the absence of Christianity As liberty slavery and polygamy appear to addle his brain I suggest that ho begin by a symposium from Paine Ingcrsoll and himself up on tho theme liberty what it is what it was will and ought to be where slavery is and Is not and why and where polygamy is interdicted in any code outside of Christendom When he has put his theories on these or other sub jects in cold type shall make them the object of cold analysis shall hold him rigidly to fair debate and shall hold myself responsible to him in tho same regard- I shall lay off tho mask of my nom c i Mac partly to bo fair and partly because I am weary of It and shall sign J J MORONEY IAs Is common among religious writ era there are so many more long conveyII will take the ideas as they come Smirch according to tho Standard Dictionary means To defame do grade as to smirch a reputation by slander Nearly all good and honest men who have distinguished themselves by their benefactions to humanity have had their reputations smirched and of this slander Tom Paine has more than any other American been the vie tint Prominent among these slanderers is Roosevelt who called Paine a filthy little athlest when ho was neither filthy nor little nor an atheist Tho next Idea is in the words that Christianity being In possession otc What that means Is not clear Christianity Is not In possession of the religious world as only one third of the world Is under the In fluence of Christianity even If wo count every body living in Christian countries as Christians Two thirds of tho religionists of the world believe In religions that are not churches report that in the United States only onethird of the people go to church There are millions of people In the United States In China alone there aTe 400 millions who believe In Confucius born years beforo Jesus was and In India there are as many more who believe In Buddha who died 543 years before Jesus was born The Japanese have 40 millions all atheists and now being universally recognized as tho highest moralists on earthAll count In which Christianity originated has abandoned Christianity and regards Jesus as an mpostor and believes Mohammed to bo tho only prophet of God If being In possession means any thing In the way of argument It means that what the people believe Is what is Isa Christian tenet and is expressed by the words Vox popull vox Del At one time tho whole of christen- dom except a few Infidel scientists believed that the wrold was flat and they claimed that this was what the Bible taught Of course then according to the reasoning of Mr Moroney tho world was at that tlmo flat Now however tho whole of christendom believe j that grid is rout and tinoaccording to Mr Moroney tho worldI is round and if Mr Moroneys good tho world must have changed from flat to round since A D 1600 at which time tho Christians burned saYIIngIf being in possession is an aryl ment Christianity is true in all of the United States except Utah where Joe Smith Is Gods prophet and where Mormanlsm is in possession and therefore true and in tho Indian Res ervations of the United States where the Indians still worship tho Sun and where Sunworshlp being In posses sion Is the true religion Jerusalem and Bethlehem and Nazareth tho scenes of tho birth life and death of Jesus aro all so thoroughly In possession of the Mohammedan that In those cities and in all Judea and Asia Minor and Arabia and all Africa Mohammedanism must be the true religion and according to Mr Moroneys reasoning must by all bo regarded as tho true religion until Christians prove that it Is not tho true religion and of course prove that to the satisfaction of Mohammedans not to the satisfaction of Christians Twothirds of the religious people of tho world do not believe in Christian ity but believe In pagan religions and according to Mr Moronoy the burden of prof rests upon tho Christians and paganism must bo regarded as truo until Christians prove that It is wrong and of course prove this to the satisfaction of tho pagans- do not know what nanJack means as there Is no such word in the dictionary but It seems to bo Invid iously Intended to oxpress tho Idea of one who does not believe as Mr Moroney does- Courtesy seems to suggest that tho term ought not to havo been used There aro too many scholars in the world who do not believe as Mr Mor oncy docs to dismiss them all as man reason why tho church should not remain in possession would make a largo book The church has killed by torture millions of people among them being the greatest moralist and scientists of tho world The moral inferiority ot tho thnrch

certainly do so to a greater or less extent Society and the accumulated know edge of the centuries are certainly a very large part and parcel of our environment Tho fact that I did not mention any

licentiousness Tho fact that Harman has been a Metho understandinguor tho fact any man anything should not debar him from fair treatment A criminal should be responsible for his treatment Tho fact of my having once been a member of the cloth has no bearing on way or tho other Your very great mistake lies in fact that Harman edits a paper d voted to sexual science His paper Is not even devoted to a free discus sion of sexual matters but is the champion of one side of tho sexual II suotho freolovo side of It ItUesldo this Harmans paper Is tho of anarchy not for a fret and open discussion of the question but tho prejudged advocate of archy Besides these again there evidence that Harman is a upon any subject Ho has no dentials of which I havo ever heard as a man of learnin- gI I do not merely acknowledge but have for years asserted that needed upon tho much tabooed subject of sex religion So Important do esteem It that for years I havo said what you never heard of anybody else saying namely that tho Government ought to establish a bureau or do partmcnt for the dissemination of in formation on this most vital que hut those who should be put Into such a bureau should bo equally men and women who havo established reputa tions as moralists and scientists and not just anybody malo or female who may assume to Instinct the people upon tilts subject just as no man should be allowed to publish a medical jour nal without somo certificate for qual ification I say without any quivoca tion that Lucifer and all of its kind should not be allowed the malls Just as I say that no publication in the Interest of bad morals should bo lowed the malls If such sentiment causes the sup preslon of my paper that Is my misfor tune not my fault I am responsible for my faults but not for my misfor tunes If it is true without reservation that tho channels of expression and communication should bo thrown wide open then any class of felons burg ulars train robbers pickpackets and assassins should have a right to pub lish journals In tho interest of their own business and havo their publica lions carried through the malls They would simply say that tho dear lic could judge as to what was good

that must differ in dif ferent persons Health education and tho observance of the laws of nature affect happiness There Is no set rule I for making people happy Things that are pleasant for one man are not for I dont bollovo that any 1another of money could make any body absolutely happy though having large amounts of money makes sonio per sons unhappy What is riches to one man Is poverty to another I could not feel as irucch unhappiness as a condemned man in his cell and I could not now feel as much happiness as he would feel by being pardoned Tho more unhappiness a man has tho f more happiness is possible for him Happiness Is not lasting a thing must be new to bo enjoyed A thing that makes you happy at first t unthought of afterward To becomesI ly and a natural life makes in

multlmlll Honalro oil magnate who has beenI tho object of a merciless of tho last six months both In lreSH and pulpit finds a champion at last In Rev Charles W Blodgett pastor of St Paul E church Cincinnati- In a statement that ho has just Is sued he takes a few falls out of Mr Rockefellers critics especially paying his respects to Rev Washington Gladden of Columbus The statement Is as follows Calls It Abuse With the abuse of John D Rock feller the press and the pulpit the writer not only has no sympathy but unqualified condemnation The recent article by Miss Ida Tarbell in Mc Clures stamps the writer as heartless and almost vicious Miss Tarbell has by that artlcl smlrtchcd what might have otherwU been a brilliant career She had to drag in ghosts of family history It was unpardonable It was fiendish Rev Washington Gladden a social reformer of Columbus whose reforms have never materialized Is equally as vicious against Mr Rockefeller The pubic at large has come to look at Mr Gladden as a sort of ecclesiastic high kicker His words have but little during the twentyfive yeai that tho writer has been observing him never advocated a measure or a theory that was not killed or renders nugatory by his er patio utterances and visionary theories The wonrtor that Mr GladdeiYlias stuck to his or iodox faith He has such a horror of taint that possibly he has been afraid to land tho liberal ranks What Is Mr Rockefellers sin Why ilre so many people damning him nalyze him and his life and here lhe pcture He was born poor n ever had any rich friends or influen tlal politicians to help him He has made a success of God endowed him with himselfI mlzatlon which applied to at a very opportune moment brought him great wealth and to the peoplo of all lands commodities necessary prices within the reach of the poorest of the poor Has Greater Genius He simply had greater genius than others as Schiller as a poet and Raphael as a painter had quallflca tlons from the Creator that made them conspicuous Place Mr Rockefellers life by the- side of any of tho great financiers of Europe and America and it will not- IIIrm him by comparison He has given over 50000000 to help human Ity Think of itthis poor boy of 50 ears ago has made It possible rthis country of ours to say wealth not destructive of love Does ho gamble No Does he drink No Does he go to horse races No Does he violate the Sabbath 1I0 Is no sport Ho is not fast has been true to his family Not a whisper of scandalous na turo goes out of his home He raised his son to believe In the democracy the people and to go to church Mr ockcfcllcr believes in the God of the DIble in the Son of God and in the church and he goes to church He has no compromise to make with tic liquor element If he was worth but 1000000 ho would be considered a model Christian among tho rich men of this country Ho has by his genius of manage Illlent distanced others therefore ho Isi a a thief and ho must be cartooned and caricatured by tho public rcss and by a few of the Socialistic liters among the preachers He Is getting along in years His benefactions and good deeds will low him when some of his traducers In tho pulpit and of the press have been forgotten Time to Speak out Ono of the crimes of American lire- Is to seek tho crucifixion of any person ji Lri ij ii l that diligently minds his own busint serves God and does good The til has como when those who are oppos to such viciousness should speak o and for that reason this article Is wr ten and the author thereof has fo his pulpit condemned such viclou ness Not a CMense This article is not written to d fend Mr Rockefeller The writer dot not know him Mr Rockefeller dot not personally need any defense ht the strong virile Chlstlan life shou have endorsement- We have scores of others like Mi Rockefeller that are honostly strivln to serve God and do good and win sot cess and many of them are young roe and the abuse heaped upon Mr Rorl feller simply says to these men if are Christians It Is a sin for you to b successful business men Not Truokng to Rich From tho standpoint of morals w only wsh it were possible ny a personal acqualntavno with Mr Rocks feller to answer such a villainous nit clo as Miss Tarbells We say thli without any of our friends charging In the statement of a desire lo truckl to rich men If you leave out of the above the be lief of preacher BiodgeU that Rocks fullers success has been the result of divine guidance what Mr Blodgctl says about Rockefeller is almost Identical with what I have said about hlu ever since the fortune of ths private individual gained by means that any man would gain such a forturo if ho could has made him a target for th abuse of the press and pulpit all ov America and all occasioned by th Jealousy that moneyless people bias of rich people The woman Ida Tar bell whose blackening disposition suggests Tarball or Tarbelle has been a ring leader in this Jealous de1 famatlon After writing a lot of vile abuse about the man she says she has no documentary evdenco of what she says but that they are the things that are believed among the people and ir a test suit brought by Rockefellei Miss Tarbell lost outrIt was certainly unwomanly in her to ridicule Rockefeller as she did be cause he was thin and ematlated and baldheaded Ho is commonly known to be a dlspeptic and his appearance is generally what excites the sympathy t of good people Bloated fat high livers are more Justly the targetsII for the shafts of caricaturists love that McCluro and Miss Tarbell have both hurt themselves utho criticism f or public office ed by any inaucasanc mon that would have beet qun uun other matter but It is a dangerous ecedent when the newspapers and purity magazines and the pulpit can with im attack the character of a man because he is ugly and rich There are certainly many are ugly and poor as the resultsIot their own vices and yet tho whole world would be IIzed if one of these characters in private life were picked out for IIc abuse as Rockefeller has been I happen to know about Washington Gladden I was a prisoner in Colum and was kindly visit d by the Protestant and Catholic clergy but I never heard a word of sympathy from Gladden and my experience too Is that his reforms are of the kind that never materialize What Blod gett says about Rockefellers morals Is Identically what have asked Does he gamble Does ho drink Does go to horse races Of course I did not care anything about his violating the Sabbath That to me is superstition but It certainly Is no crime to observe the Sabbath He Is no sport and is not fast that I ever heard of and I never heard nn Insinuation that he had In any way been untrue to his family his marriage vows Not a whisper of any scandalous nature has ever gone out of his home whllo such whispers have gone out of so many prominent homes Ordlnar Ily the sons of millionaires are worthless and dissipated but we hear noth- Ing of young Rockefeller except that he teaches Sunday School and Is one- of the commissioners to distribute the orations of his father Such have been the assaults upon the character of Rockefeller that he has employed guards to save him from assassination- No greater outrage upon tho rights of any American citizen has over been perpetrated except when I was put tho penitentiary because I do not be lIee In religion and It Is true that tho same class of people who Impels tied mo a pour Infidel aro those who abuse Rockefeller the rich Christian Let these men crush out Rockefeller Imply bcause ho Is a rich man and they

crippled the crooked and deformed stand straight and be beautified Somo time ago as I was posing illalong a street I met a little old bunch of a woman hobbling upon two sticks Her head was almost on a level will I her hips I never before witnessed a human being walk with head so low Her legs were crooked so far under her they seemed to prop up her breast t As she walked or rather sided and hobbled along her face to the pave ment she presented a strange and curious sightII turned and followed her some dis tance having a curiosity to speak to tt her and to see her face When I IJ spoke It was with great difficulty that t she turned her face half way to one side she could not look up and for ward to see who was speaking to her JJg 5 lXtii that facethe pinched weazened look agony the vacant gaze the years U r rAthepain written there asked her if she had suffered an ittaccident or what might have been ifF the cause of her affliction She said she didnt know that she had been that way since a child I con versed a little with her asked her if she suffered pain and if sho could read She said she suffered all the time and reading was the only joy she had on earth I was thankful for she hobbled on I looked at her and said I hope that woman that scarce human thing will be given an other life to repay her for tho mis cries of this which are no fault of her 1own I hope sho will live again to 0 stand straight like others For the pain and humiliation of this life for her endless disappointments for her sad secret hopeless longings I hope she will live again to be en r dowed with superior gifts of body and brain that she will have a face like glorlri1t morn great billowing breasts to tin qgl with sweet passion and chaste yearnings of motherhood limbs dim pled and rosy full curved and straight J to bear her along with voluptuous ii grace I hope that poor emanclated crook i ed form will be straightened and rounded out thrilled with potent pas f slon and palpitating desire Inspired by ambition and glorified by ennobling t thought I know not whence she came nor whither she went and have never 1l seen her since but I trust the few i ii kind words of sympathy I gave her itwill linger in her memory and lead her to feel that she is not altogether Ii repulsive not altogether an object to be gazed at not altogether out of harmony with the universe but that pity still links her to human tenderness while hope over weaves a rain bow fringe of transformation over her shriveltd form and misty brain There may be some who read this who likewise in degree are thus af flicted If so I want them to know and feel my sympathy and that I hope If for no other reason that there will be another life Just for their sakes that the bent backs may bo straightened that their heads bo lift f T ed high toward the upward looking and the light An immortality a new lIfo of happ ness as long at least as the present average life cannot be too good for such or for all who sorrow

tyranny of governments tho grinding power of plutocracy the lions who through various adverse causes are naught but driftwood on the stream of time I cannot but wish to see a rectification of all this catt clysm of crime and suffering and woe under circumstances which this 1Ife does not afford In these remarks my affection have spoken not my reason Vere to speak now from the standpoint ot reason and I will discuss this subject from this standpoint in some near Issue I would speak in almost direct opposition to these statements The world of though Is directed by these two extremesReason and Love Tho primary government of man Is founded upon the affections and wisely so The affections are the children of ignorance and instincts the horizon of our experience expands anll models multiply we enter Into a chm atmosphere and love and admlratioi perceptibly vanish Reason disintegrates Love unJ fles Reason exalts Love tempors al fection Though Reason is the high est power yet It is not all powerful nor all essential Reason may cure Illusions but not suffering It has many eyes to see evils but how often it is helpless to prevent them Men are destined to reason wrongl as well as rightlylike the clermto reason backward instead of forward to take Ideals from the past Instead of the present They were trained that way and cannot always help it TheyI have a tender sensitive regard dent ghosts which never appear hem and they spout about reasoning together more than anybody The annot always help It Some are distined not to reason at ill and some are destined to persecute those who do reason Such a complex state of affairs ex Istlng seemingly necessarily more and more I perceive that Reason hould never leave Affection behind inz fTana snoUfagd ng light and joy along their shining cannot get away from suffering The world is full of bruised and crushed hearts and desolate spirits moans of sorrow creep velnllko through the sunshine and underlie the laughter however gay and loud pillows of pale and chambers where the soft step of sleep will not tread are all over the world Among the flowers there is no perpetual bloom the world is furrow cd with grave mounds and the darkness and silence are ever hard by where no sweet care or gentle word cnn do any good One after another of our dear ones go from us and pass out Into the darkness and with our feet stumbling among their graves the golden summer sunshine seems only to bleach white our hair and not to be Natures loving baptism for the just and unjust And pain knits itself to pain and complaint joins Itself to complant till a thankless if not reproachful under stone runs through all the world and to millions Ufo beocmes a heavy burden an echo among ruins Moro and more I perceive the necessity of cher shing tho affections There Is more need of Loves supporting armIiMbn gClfos slippery pathway and its frost wrapIFrom summer flowers are lost There is more need of Liberals cut tInting the social instinct of beng iffectonate among themselves for hey too in addition to suffering all the pains and afflictions of others must suffer ostracism and more or less contempt and martyrdom for their principles The Liberal is essentially affectionate n hs relations to mankind but am sorry to say has not that vormth of affection for his own class that he should have This may be due artly from lack of contact through organization Toward others the Liberal Is the most affectionate of men He exhlb Its this affection in the selfsacrifices he makes n helping others to become ntcllcctually free The Liberal is peaceable He opposes war He does not coerce He gains converts by ompelllng none He does not resort to the startegems of opposing brutal force Ho does not seek to shod hUt 7 rman blood He wants every one have health and happiness In th world Ho does not sigh for the b i ers of paradise and trample the fits ers of this life under his feet I would that the affection Llberi bestow upon mankind they

Communication in Marietta Dally Fournal vhlch1 mail you today Please give us your comments on it and send me 10 copies of the B G as I wish to give them to my friends I will remit for same I remain yours very trulyDR OGDEN ti tl Ir EELOVE AND ANARCHY ARE NOT INFIDEL SENTIMENT There are many Infidels some who o frcelovers and somo anarchists 0 two nearly always going together it recent and current developments ivo shown and are showing that jpresentatlvo Infidelity is opposed to eelovo and anarchy and that these wo crimes are Christian and Infidel ty as an organization needs to rid Itself of all such people The Infidel sentiment on this subject has recently been tested by the New York Truth Seeker an Infidel paper printing ar tlcles from a preacher named Pent costs who has openly advocated that tho poor should steal from tho rich and rob them by force and who is so a frcolovcr and an anarchist I glvi a letter on the subject as it appears In the T S simply leaving out some Immaterial parts It is as follows- PENTECOSTS APOLOGIST SCORED To the Editor of the Truth Seeker The Truth Seeker still overflow with letters from the admirers of the advocate of Anarchy freelove and the elimination of the moral sense and while I have been too busy to attend to those who have presented me with the point of their pikes I havo conclude that silence had better give way to of my critics Is In distress Oer the Imagined Inapprolatencss of the name suggested for a supplemental paper to be printed specially for the erratic advocates of lawlessness and I suggested The Light of Hell as a title for the proposed sheet I did not expect some people to seethe application I laughed when wrote but concluded to let it remain even if sure to be misunderstood by many Then several of the Pentecost apologists remind us that others aro permitted to express their views without ot Jectlon and ask why tho publication of other views should call forth opposl tlon and talk about press nuzzle because of tho objection to the publication of Pentecostal philosophy and morals It is apparent to anything but an ad died brain that there aro things whit It Is Improper and wrong to advocate either in private conversation or pub lie print and that it would be as proper to call a man who objected to having his paper give space to demn man who prevented the man from following his inclinations to steal I have no objection to people who k iiUio Anarchy freelove the right blllty of doing wry-puij put w no SAaua of their own rruneou and shameful notions among iemsolvijs I simply object to buying and paying ror such rot myself and to placing it before my family and friends I want to say right hero that I object to the publication of the reports of the Pentecost meetings in The Truth Seek- These ere reports do not occupy theme relation to The Truth Seeker Uwt is occupied by a letter from a correspondent Tho Truth Seeker is making them a feature of the paper and thereby becomes as directly responsible for their publication as it can in anything except an editorials article Who and what Is this man Tak ng his own words he is a onetime preacher who is now a criminal law er and also an Anarchist who would let every criminal go free and let very crime go unpunished and unrestrained It his talk is uttered for the purpose of attracting to him the criminal class as clients it should be effective but the fact that he docs not appar ntly practice what he preaches olses a doubt as to his sincerity Should ho keep on with tho advice which he has been giving he ylll probe nbly one day find himself In tho coin pnny of many others who were put there because they had his way of linking and tried to carry out his vice He says that good and evil are all gammon and claims tho right to vade He teaches tho principle that he shall get who ha stho power and he shall keep who can Ho believes In the abolition of all law as well as of conscience It seems almost superfluous to add that he believes In freelove as that Is one of the natural results of the abolition of law and conscience Finally he not only believes in abol iblng all restraint but ho advises eoplo to steal Now if the Editor of tho Truth eoker wants to parade the mouthlngs of such a character as that by report- Ing his weekly talks let him tell tie so and assume tho responsibility for their ubllcaton I am interested in tho welfare The Truth Seeker and would like seo it a power for truth and right llv Ing I would like to ceo it above reproach n i ii fJr i education 1
