Zion's Herald, a
Sitfthodist newspaper of Doston
resent the statements which are
afloat as to what the "Methodist
denomiration" is to do in the
presidential campaign, and sa-s:
"The Uishops have no authority
in the matter, nor would they
control the action or the hum
blest voter. Indeed there is no
unanimity of opinion among
the Bishops in the pending cam
paign. The individual Metho
dist, therefore, is as free in his
political action as the Episcopa
lian, Oongrogalionalist or Bap
tist. In fact the majority of
Methodist voters are republi
cans, a respectable minorityjare
political prohibitionists, and a
smaller proportion are loyal
democrats. The Methodist is a
political freeman, and will con
tinue to exeocise his freedom."
