The Cue of Irwin.
A correspondent, signing himself ".hrt
t'cp," seixls tho following to tho Jtakor
Oity Democrat of the BUi inst :
"Tho Oregonian dispatch from l.a
Graudo relative to the trial of (J. M. Irwin
boforo the Mcthoilist conference, 'rocuatly
held In that city, for dishonesty, lyinjr,
libel, etc., was s'.ihily In error. He was
convicted of both lying and lilipl, n:id the
penalty as stated in the dispatch was a
reprimand by tho Eirbop. It is safe to cay
I that this in the fimt instance in a Mutliu
dist ccckldstieal court where a man. con
victed of so gross an offence as lying, which
! Is uiuong the ofl'enoc! sutMciunt, according
to tho Methodist dis-ciplinc, to ''uxcludc a
person from the kingdom of grace and
glory,' and libel, which is punlshab'o un
der tho laws of Oregon by u fine or impris
onment, or both, should be punished by a
singlo reprimand. by a bishop. It Is a now
thieg under the sun. Usually when a
church member fa convicted of such of
fences ho is summarily expelled and forth
with published to the world as a vidian
doubly damned. But U appears that in
church cirolou thcro are privileged classes.
What will expel a church member from thu
church will merely subject a Methodist
minister to a reprimand. Tho world seems
to bo running backward."
The pious gout ubovo mentioned is now
exhibiting his incompetency, in behalf of
the republican party, at tho Chomawa In
dian school and making hlmnelf obnoxious
to nil with whom he comes hi contuot.
Even his republican brethren seem to have
f?ot a MufHniciicy of him.
