Astoria, Oregon, Sunday Morning, October 28, 1883
Is it Commonly Used in the Marri
Announcements having appear
ed frequently of late that clergy
men in Canada and elsewhere
omitted the word "obey1 from the
marriage service, promineirti Bos
ton ministers were visited by the
(i loin- reporters recently, to ascer
tain their customs and views in
the matter. The result is given
Rev II. Carpenter said: "I al
wua's leave out the word 'obey1
unless" the bride or ;room request
it. But occasionally put it in
for the benefit of the husband."
Kev. "Wright said: ' "The obli
gation is absolutely equivalent
upon both man and wife. 1 omit
the word "obey" because it has no
binding force in practice. Both
parties covenant alike, and T can
conceive of no cause that will tend
to break up the harmony of do
mestic relations greater than to
have children feel that their
mother is a slave to the father.
There is no form in our church
that we are obliged to subscribe
to, therefore we violate no rule in
ommitting the word 'obey.1'
JieV. Dr. "Webb stated that in
his faith that some use the word
"obey," while others do not. "1
generally use the words 'love, hon
or and cherish," but T think the
prevailance of the terrible evil of
divorce may cause a return to the
use of the word 'obey,' so that as
far as forms and words can make
it, the ceremony should be more
binding. 1 am sometimes request
ed to use 'obe3' in the service,
but not frequently'
I?ev. .1. A. Jordan said there
was no ritualistic form for the
clergymen of the Baptist faith to
use. "So far as 1 know, each
pastor uses his own individual
judgment as to what form he
adopts. I almost always use the
'obey,1 but have no special reason
to ffive for so doinir."
Rev. J. Savage said, emphati
cally: "I never use the word
'obey,1 and never intend to use it
I can see no reason why the wife
should obe3' the husband any more
than the husband the wife.
Rev. O. P. Gi fiord said he some
times used the word "obey," and
sometimes not, but generally used
the regular Episcopal marriage
service: "The word obey in the
ritual, if used, doesn't amount to
much, for if the wife loves her
husband she will obey him in all
things that are right, and if she
don't love him it will be a bad
year for him."
Rev. G. L. Perrin said: "1
never used the word 'obey,' and
think it is not customary in the
Protestant churches of to-day. I
always use the words, 'love, honor
and cherish.1 1 have never been
asked to use the word, but fre
quently have been requested to
leave it out of the service."
Rev. AV. "W. Downs, of the
Baptist church, said: "I do not
know what others may do, but for
many j'ears I have used the word
with the addition of 'in love.1 In
other words, I say, 'obey in love,
which thereb' robs it of all objec
ttons. The true husband will not
ask his -wife to obey except in
love, and the true wife is always
rcadjr to do that. Occasionally I
have been asked by the contract
ing parties to leave the word out
sometimes by the gentleman, but
oftener by the lady, and 1 always
Rev. C. C. Grafton, of the
Church of the Advent, said: "I
would not pretend to set myself
u plover the Scripture, which says
plainty that the husband is the
master. The book of common!
praj'er prescribes it, and 1 think it
N Rev. H. "W. Bolton, of the
Grace 'M. E. Church, said: "I
left the word 'obey,'' out years ago.
I don't know any reason why one
should agree to obey more than
Rev. S. E. Herrick, of the Con
gregational Church, said: "1 have
no set formula: sometimes 1 use
the word, and sometimes I don't.
In many cases 1 have thought that
the husband should be the one
that promised to obey instead of
the wife, and in these cases I have
left the word out. 1 am free to
say that in my judgment and as
the event proved, the wife was
the controlling influence, although
the husband did not know it, and
was better for not knowing it.'
Justice Tut tie, of East Haven,
Conn., sat in his little court
room hist Thursday morning,
with a volume of the state statutes
open before him at the page where
it said that "Every person who
shall engage in an3 sport or recre
ation on Sunday between sunrise
and sunset shall be fined not more
than 4: nor less than SI." Four
teen men stood up at his command
to plead to the charge upon which,
under'the blue laws the3' were ar
rested on Sunday for riding on a
public highway on the Sabbath.
"You understand, of course," re
marked the justice, "that under
this statute there is no appeal
from the justice decision, and
3ou must either pay the fine or go
to jail." Constable Speny and his
deputies testified, telling how they
had captured the accused persons
riding on the Roxom road, and how
they had held them in custody in a
barnyard during Sunday after
noon. "Well," remarked the jus
tice, "I fine you $i .each with
costs." All settled promptly and
the court was adjourned, with the
town of East Haven enriched
about $100. "The chief reason
given for arrests under the bl in
laws," said Constable Sperr3', "is
not because the Foxom people are
better than other folks, but be
cause we want to scare ofi" the New
Haven men who come pouring out
through our roads every Sunday.
"We think this will settle the mat
ter." It has come to the knowledge of
the Oregon City J'Jtt' j'n'isc that
two or three prominent individuals
in Portland have organized them
selves into a company for the pur
pose of obtaining, fraudulently,
titles to the valuable timber lands
along the Columbia river. They
have already secured fifteen or six
teen thousand acres of the best
timber in the world. Their plan
of operation was as follows: At
first they employed a number of
men to look out for the best tim
ber, that had not already been
taken up, and locate it, so that its
metes and bounds could be given.
The next move was to get poor
workingmen in Portland to make
due application for a quarter of a
section, the description of which
was given them. To do this they
were promised $50 and expenses.
But they often received onl3r 25,
30 or $40. These applicants
never paid for the land or ever saw
the patents, butthe3' were required
to transfer the title before they
were paid for their perjury.
General Sprague. appears to be
in bad odor with the "Washington
Territory legislature. At a recent
vote no one took any exceptions to
the opinion expressed by Mr. Ca
ton for "this man Sprague," and
the amendment to change the
name from Spragne to Lincoln
county was unanimously carried.
