A presumption of Rev. Thos. A.
Yost compels me to explain some
statements he made against me that
a;c not true, In the Lebanon Expuksk
of June 13.
He begins with boasting clout 11 of
the ministers being on his side and on
ly five on the side Mr. McElroy ad
heres tin that is the Evangelical
church. Yot don't consider that it Is
better to stand for the side of five that
are honest and square, working for the
gtod cause than to favor 1000 indvidu
als that are planning coil, and are us
ing every way and means to under
mine the church to which they have
wouiised loyalty. These secedera had
been holding privy councils before
this anunal conference, discussing how
thev could overthrow the church.
merely on account of some personal
disagreements. He also forgets that
this Oregon conference, which is the
most famous among the reliellious.
ataonnts to very little among the
conferences that are loyal and clear of
sucli corruption. If Bishop Bowman
had bceu suspended, as thev claim. It
would have been very foolish for him
to trv and hold any coufcrence. The
fact that he held all the conferences,
goes to shove that the sham suspension
with which the Dubs mob tiled to
silenco him, was as infamwus a lie us
ever the coil once dared to start.
Biuop Bowman Is on the. best of
terms with the headquarters of our
association and conducts his business
worthy of his name. But there are a
great number of people In Uncle Sam's
domain that like to lie humbugged.

In regard to inviting Mr. Norton,
we trustees have not teen consulted.
nor has Mr. JohnGalbraith nor I made
any protest against Mr. Norton using
the church. If Mr. Morris, the other
trustee did, and I doubt if he did, there
was one trustee, (not trustees.) Uou
cernmg the doctrines, Mr. 1 ot kih-w
well enough that the Advents differ
with the Evangelicals. He should
have used more sense than to expect
that Mr. Norton would deny his doc
trines which he has upheld all his life,
for the sake of being allowed to preach
in his (Yost's) new church. When
Yost was gathering subscriptions tow
ard his church building tie deceived a
good many outsiders and members of
other denominations by telling them
that the new church would be open
for any orthodox preaching. Now the
treatment Mr. Norton, the United
Brethern and others received proves
his actions a contradiction of his words.
He says that he kindly offered Brother
McElroy the church to use, also his
elder, Mr. Bittner. He did not tell
you the conditions which they were to
go by. They were not to say one
word against his, nor one word in fav
r of t heir own side. Can such an offer
be accepted by the minister of an old
proen church from a traitor? Where
is Christian tolerance?
Such actions are bound to create dis
satisfaction in a community where each
denomination eun't afford to build
their own church; where it takes the
united effort of all to put up a building
for worship. It is alright for the
Evangelical church to have control
and arrangements in their hands, but
we should not put ourselves above all
others, and since Yost seceded he has
no legal right nor power to appropri
ate to himself possession and manage
ment of this church. True, he has
worked with his own hands and com
pleted the building, and so have a
good many others. He claims he was
doing this for the church and God.
Now he attempts to cast the whole
at the devil's feet. It "reminds me of
some cows I have seen. They would
give an abundance of milk, let the
milker get his pail brimful and then
kick it all over creation.
Yost's history states that 8. R.
Nothiger secured one key and tried
to get the other of J. W. Galbraith.
This is ft base falsehood, unworthy of
one that calls himself a mtnistc- of .'he
gospel. My purpose of going to John
Galbraith was to call bis attention to
the perilous condition the church w-p
in. 1 did not know that John uad a
key, and to try to take it away would
have been an insult. The bishop h..d
suffieieut reason to tell me to get tlie
key that was not in the hands of the
W h y in the name of common sense
must that temple stand idle three
fourths of time? If Christian tolerance
was practiced, there would be preach
ing two or three times every bunday.
But, no, no, Yost has built this houe
with his own bands, for his own self,
trying to make the public believe he
was the genuine Evangelical minister,
while he was run off with a lot of
ambitious cranks, who are all longing
for self-glory. Before we know it they
will hrve another split-up among
themselves, for they are all striving
for Bishop's dignity.
Mr. Bowersox in making his state
ment concerning this affair has tangl
ed himself into a net of crooked stories.
' The main part was an appeal for the
sympathy of the people.
We will have a man explain matters
before long at the old Grange hall.
Everybody interested will be invited
to come, 'if Mr. Yost wants to expose
me that way because I do not agree
with his actions, and thinks the
Dutchmen, as he calls us, (although
he is one himself) would swallow it
all, he is mistaken. Better go slow.

Talk about other brands of shoes
than the magnificent line kept by
Montague. Shoo, fly, don't bother
me; there is room enough in the
world for theo and me. We can
FIT anyone, and when Montague
says FIT he means it, and he is not
going to send you out of his palatial
stores with those abominable monsters
in leather which you may possibly
find in other establishments not a
thousand nulea ironi our grand em
porium, and which makes your feet
look as though you were a new arrival
from Chicago. No, do not make any
mistake when you want GOOD Boots
or Shoes for mother, wife or sister,
the grandmother to the baby, the
grandfather to the last new boy, but
be sure to call 011 Montague and se
cure what you may require i that
line. Every pair fully warranted.

Now as to Clothing.
When the purse was emptied, as
above succinctly set forth, Montague
was compelled to open another tutr'l
for the purpose of securing to our cus
tomers the latest novelties In fine suits
as well as those adapted to every-dny
wear. We are now opening up our
elegant designs in Oregon City Cloth
ing, California Ctifsimeru Clothing,
Men's Clothing, Youth's Clothing,
Boys' Clothing, all Imported Goods,
elegant-fitting garments, at scandal
ously low prices.
Montagu has had over forty years
experience in selling goods, twenty of
which were spent among you rignt
here in Jjehanon, and he now proposes
to spend the evening of his life in giv
ing to one and all such prices as the
nous Oranger of Unn county never
dreamed of. Make Montagu know
you are going to pay cash down and
no grumbling (the chronic grumbler is
a despicable creature), and he will
make prices to you ail right.
MONEY ONCE MORE.
The people who promised to pay up
by the 1st of last January and failed to
connect may find their accounts where
it will not please them. Montague
does not propose to waste valuable
time in hunting up these delinquents.
but will send the most forcible collec
tor he can employ to wile the dollars
due nie from these mtich-prpmiiug
Orders left at the Express office
receive prompt attention.
