AN EXTRA SESSION.
In response to numerous letter?
from Eastern Oregon asking
Governor Pennoyer to call an extra
session of the legislature for the
purpose of passing a law to stay
the execution of judgments, the
Governor has sent a letter to each
of the representatives asking their
view as to the advisability of such
a Bession. Doubtless if such a law
had been passed by the last legisla
ture, it would have afforded relief
to some parties whose property is
now at the mercy of unscrupulous
creditors, But we do not think it
would be advisable to attempt to
pass such a law at the present
time. It would doubtless precipi
tate the very thing it was intended
to prevent. Those having debt
due them would bring action at
once to try to obtain judgment be
fore the law passed. ' As the law
could not effect judgments already
obtained, a call for an extra session
now would have a tendency io
cause some creditors' to bring Bui,
to collect their money who would
not do bo under the present law.
In many instances, the creditor",
who are the most persistent in
pressing collections at the present
ime are the ttsuren; and if the
debtors should take advantage of
the usury law, it might prove a
safeguard against such oppression
GOLD AND SILVER.
The production of gold for the
whole world is, ot coureo, not ac
curately known, but the Director
of the United States mint is accus
tomed to estimate it each year from
the best statistics and information
possible, So, also with silver. It
is interesting to know the countries
which are the chief contributors of
metallic wealth. In 1891, at the
head of the gold producers stood
the United States, with $33,000,
000; second wa8 Australia, with
$31,000,000; third came Russia,
whose mines in the Ural Moun
tains bavo always furnished a con
siderable tribute, with $24,000,000;
fourth is Africa, with $14,000,000;
fifth is China, with $5,COO,000,
sixth is the South American Re
public of Columbia, with $3,400,
000; British India, comes next,
with $3,400,000. All the other
countries are small contributors.
Of silver countries the United
States stands at the head, with $75,
000.000; second is Mexico, with
$53,000,000; Bolivia is third with
$15,000,000; Australia is fourth,
with $13,000,000. There are no
other . large producers. Germany
mines silver in the Hartz Moun
tains, celebrated in European liter
ary demonology, and Btands fifth,
with $8,000,000. Chile producer
$3,000,000. Austria-Hungary, Spain
and France each take out some
thing more than $2,000,000 an
nually, as do the combined Central
American States. Russia, which
ia rich in gold and platinum, is
credited with a pittance of $500,
000 of silver; while Mexico, which
is one of the great silver producer",
turns out only about $1,000,000 in
gold. ' All the Central American
States in 1391 produced only $150,
000 in gold. The Argentine Re
public, in South America, would,
from its name, be taken for a rich
silver State, but it ie only credited
with $600,000 of silver and little or
no gold. New Orleans Picayune.

A. Campbell' Testimony Vindicated
Against Eld. Scolet.
By J. B. Ualley.
Ed. Press: In your last issue
the Press contains an article
from Mr. Scoles as a reply, proper
ly to A. Campbell, and not to Eld
Daisley. Mr. S. never replied to
the questions I wrote, and he never
will. The issue is between Scoles
and A. Campbell. Mr. C's testi
mony is against the improper and
unfair use Mr. S. made of the
statement read in the tent. Scoles
claimed that Campbell's language
proved the binding force of the old
covenant. Such statement cannot
be found in any of Campbell's
published works. When S. was
isked to allow C. to speak
for himself, he refused, there
lore C. through the Press rebuked
ind arraigned Mr. S. as knowing
ly breaking the 1st commandment.
He now tries to '"clear himself bui
in hid effort he still plunges furth
er into the mire of historical ig
norance. Candid reader please
read A C's. statement carefully and
nee if his language even intimates
that the ten commandments are
now binding. The nearest it comes
to it are in these words, ''So
reads the fourth principle of the
everlasting ten." This I believe
and teach as well as Mr. Camp
bell for the moral principles of
the 4th command is rest which
was from creation in God'B pur
pose, and was enjoined upon the
sons of Jacob to be observed by
them only until the fulfillment in
Clirht. Col. 2. 16. WhocHnnot see
that the moral principle of the 4th
command is rest here, and ever
lasting hereafter. But the letter
the command to rest on the 7th
day has ceased, "is done away"
ended on the cross, but the prin
ciple which is proper rest is stil 1
in force and is observed by all
Christians on the first day of the
week, the Lord's day. The same
may be truly said with re
spect to the whole ten commands.
The letter is done away, but the
spirit or principle is still in force;
these great eternal principles, thai
constitute the unchanging and per
fect law of God, and not the com
mands. The mistake Scoles and
his class makes is they are resting
in the letter, the commanded works
f law, instead of the spirit, which
tlways was and is right without
any command. This Scoles can't
see that the spirit could exiat
without the letter. I have this in
black and white at his own con
sent. Now, let us see if he honestly
represents Mr. C. in his alleged
quotations from his lectures, lit
ays: "He once believed and ac
epted the ten commands as the
great moral law of God as th
verlftBtrg ten." Is this state
inent found in the quotation? Oi
course not. He therefore willingly
represents his language. You see
he carefully omits the word, prin
ciple the word which gives point
ukI pith and sheds light on the
whole statement. "So reads th
fourth principle of the everlasting
ten," quote him correctly and all
He further savs, A. C. called, the
ten commimds the gro.it moral law
of God. See how unfair, and warped
and mistaken he is. Now, listen
to A. C's teBtimonv. My objection
to denominating the ten precepts
the moral law represents itself to
the reflecting mind that all moral
ity is not contained n them. For
doctors in divinity tell us the first
I able respects our duty to God, the
second our duty to man. W hy, then
call the ten commands "the moral
law," seeing but six of them are
moral? Are the immoralities cal
led drunkeness, fornication poly
eamv. divorces on timing at
counts, retaliations, ,. etc., proh
bited in them?" Scoles again
says. "He afterwards rejected this
according to Mr. D'b quotation."
Charity says S. was napping when
he wrote that sentence, each a
thought never entered my head,
nor even hinted in anything I
wrote. Scoles eays, A. Campbell
afterwards rejected this and be

pleasant to expose anyone who ia

and clearly shows that his Sab
bath keeping has not refined his
better nature, but such is the cold
crude spiritless' teaching of 7th
dayism. How narrow must be
the man to think that A. C. rejec
ted the principles of right and ,
duty to God and man, which is to
love God, and your neighbor as
yourself, and thus became an Anti
nomian. What is an Antinomian?
According to Webster "they- who
hold doctrine which supersede the
necessity of good works and a
virtuous life." f o Luther Williams
Wesley and all in every age who
lived "under the law of Christ" are
classed with a low vila sect, who'
disregarded moral law and a vir
This comes with but little grace
from a man who believes God has
sent him to proclaim the third
angel's message. But not content
ed with this he places him and
his followers with Saul, a repro
bate and Judas, the traitor. This
is the fruit which the preachers of
the 7th day Advents bear, from
snch a spirit good Lord deliver us.
Mr. Scoles says. "And what he
may have written afterwards does
,;ot render untrue that which he
wroiw before. "Here S. speaks
with autor'ty but it'8 w'tn the
thunder made in "Battle Creek,"
another evidence he Is in the dark.
Mr. C. please give Mr. S. a little
historical information in regard
to what you first wrote. "Well, I
arrived in Wash, Pa. 1809, preached
my first sermon 1810, was baptized
1812, preached for the six churches

this sermon was on "The Law"

written sermon and was made the
ground of impeachment and trial
for herisy, which resulted in our
withdrawal from the Baptists 1819
established Buffalo Academy taught
a few years aided by my father
1823, the Christain Baptist
was established through which
oe became famous as a reformer
and spiritual educator. A. C. had
no popular prestiage until abuui
this time. Betheny college was
not founded until 1841. The re
formatory truths expressed in that
sermon he contended for till death;
and yet Mr. S. has the brazen uf
frontuery of a Jewish pope to say
that "he once accepted the ten
commandments as the great moral
law of God." Once for all let me
say that the sermon on "The Law"
in 1816 is first and last without
change. After hearing this evi
dence I still insist if you. are a
christain, make an honorable con
tension to the public of the chargeb
you alleged against me.
I now hand you over to Mr.
Daisley. Mr. IS. says he is a Chris
tian in truth und obeys his Lord's
command in Ex 20. Well, Mr.
d. if true why not be circumcised
and keep the Passover, these are
commands of your Lord back in
Ex 13, You are a christian in
deed, if the everlasting ten are
binding, every jot and tittle of the
Sabbath law and its requirements
must be obseived. You sav a part
won't do, "if I call myself a chris
tian and do not keep all the com
mands, I bring upon myself con
demnation." Well, Mr. S. you are
surely under condemnation for
you aon't keep all the commands.
Let us see. Do you offer the burnt
offering of every Sabbath?' "Wor
ship at the door of the gate." Ye
shall gather ro sticks on the Sab
bath "kindle no fire" bear no bur
den on the Sabbath. "Whosoever
doeth any work shall be put to
death" children, servants, and cat
tle must rest.' You shall neither
bake nor boil. "Every Sabbath
breaker must be stoned to death."
Does the Sabbath law remain en
tire. Then its penalties too, and
f bo why donH you keep your
Lord's commands. You say not
one jot or title of it is to pass away,
of the ten commands then it includ
es the Sabbath law. Do you hear
what the law paith. "Cursed is
every one who continuelh not in
ill things written in the book of
the law to do them." Gal 3. 13.
If yout mind was not warped, you
could Bee that, John 2. 4. has no
reference to God's commands
through M"bcs, you can't see that
Jesus gave any commands, all the
commands are the ten commands.
Oh not The ten commands con
tains the Mibbath, I the com
mandment.' . f God and the law of
Christ bv the Apostles do not.
He enn't see the law of Chrit
"embodies all tho moral prinri
pies of the old law, that Christ's
new law of "faith" and "love" ia.
greatly superior to the old law and
sin and-death. Oh no; nothing
can equal the.ten commandments.
If they were done away with there
would be nothing left. Such lan
guage is enough to astonish any
person. It is practically saying
"We are Moses desciples, but as
for this fellow (Christ) we know
from whence he is." ,
Now I need not say in conclusion,
th at of all the hideous monstrosities
that have bestrode the human
mind like a working nightmare,
and a black pale of death, this
monstrous delusion is without a
parallel. J. B, Djlisiby,
Marshal Stamper has instituted
a crusade against all dogs that
are not honored with a collar. He
