an eclipse of the moon tonight, and those
wno are interested in sucn matters should
watch the midnight sky. There will be
brilliant colorings, preceded by Inky dark
ness, and the effect will doubtless be
very impressive if the weather is clear.
The time of the eclipse is set between 9
and 10 o'clock, and if the heavens re
main as clear as they have been the past
three or four nights, there should be fine
opportunity to view the phenomena in
this locality. The total eclipse of Octo
ber 16, 1902,, was so thoroughly enjoyed by
those who viewed it that many will
doubtless anxiously watch lor a recur
rence of such an event.

Presbyterian. Rev. M. D. McClelland, has
gone to a Pokeville, Ky., pastorate.

Its massive and beautiful scenic effects

more from this magnificent orchestra

of the music by the principals, and the
choral numbers lacked unison and
smoothness at times. This is paying

The OregonJan, la course of a Ion

said, among many other things, that
Mr. Masters "is a member and Trus
tee of Taylor-Street Methodist
Church." Why there should be any
Inference that his "action has the ap
proval of the Methodist Episcopal
Church" The Oregoalan does not un
derstand; and The Oregonian thinks
there is ao such inference except In
the mind of this correspondent and
possibly of his associates. However,
since Grace Church, through tfils cor
respondent, takes the. trouble to set
Taylor-Street Church straight, w
snan suppose mat mere win be no
chance of misunderstanding hereafter
that Taylor-Street Church cannot and
does not. Indorse the acts of Coun

It Is a trifling matter, but it may b
observed that in the above, in his quo
tatlon from The Oregonian, Mr. John

tend to have Its language garbled or
misquoted in its own columns, and has
Inserted these two missing words In
place of the dash( )of the corre

ject of inferences It may be proper to
suggest that this correspondent possibly
Intended that the public should under
stand that The Oregonian had de
scribed Mr. Masters as a member and
Trustee of Grace M. E. Church, and
therefore Grace Church had not gone
out of Its may to criticise- the words
and public attitude of a Trustee of
Taylor-Street Church, or to define the
position of Taylor-Street Church, since
Taylor-Street Church had not seen fit
itself to do it
Mr. Masters is a member of the 11
cense committee of the Common Coun
dL In pursuance of his functions he
has voted four grants of licence to sell
liquor in conformity with law. It
Is for the Methodist Episcopal Church
to say whether this act should exclude
him from its membership. Of course,
The Oregonian can have no opinion
on this point However, it supposes
that sale of liquors under lawful re
slrlctions will be continued In Port
land; It supposes further through 11
cense Issued in pursuance of law,
whether Mr. Masters shall be a mem
