Making Men Good.
A few weeks ago an article appeared in
the editorial coluinnofllicExPHEsb inwliich
this statement was made: "You cannot
make men seller or moral by law." This
utatemeiit was selected for a text, and
affirmatively treated from one of the Leba--lion
pulpits last Sunduy evening. The 20tlt
chapter of Kx. was read for a lesson, and
the law ou murder, on homicide, and the
law of damage were all refld. We do not
propose to take an "ipse dixit," nor an
"exparte" statement, but to the law and to
the prophets, "Jesus Christ himself being
the chief corner stone." In Gen. 2:16 we
mid the law to Adam. Was lie made better?
Let the wail of millions answer from the
CHverns of despair. The law to Noah. Gen.
9:3, did he keep it? orwas he made moral
or sober by it? Head the 24tk verse of this
9fh chanter: "And Noah awoke from his
wine:"- dead drunk. In the lWth chapter
of Ex. we have the mural law hi full, alsoiu
De.:t. 5:6 the law iB repeated. This irfect
law, (for it is perfect) demands entire obedi
ence. Has any man kept it? IlidtheJews
keep it? Let Ahab and . Jezebel, 400
prophets of Baal, answer. If tins is not
complete, then let tJie sad wail of captive
I Jews as they hang their harpsontlie willow
j trees, in captivity, sing hack their mournful
dirge of degeneracy. Will the reverend
gentleman read the 3d chapter of Gal., luth
and nth verses. "No man is justified by
the law iu the sight of God; for as many as
are of the works of the law are under the.
curse." Then read James 2nd chapter and
Will verse, "Fur wkosucver shall keep the
whole law, aud yet olTend in one point, he
is guilty of all." Now read Kom. 3d chap.,
and 20th verse, "Therefore by the deeds of
the law shall no flesh be justified in his
sight; fur by the law is the knowledge of
iu." Now if we will read Eph. 2nd chap,
and 15th verse we will nud how men are
made sober, moral and better; "Having
atiolisked in his iiesh the enmity, even the
law of commandments, contained hi ordi
nances, for to make in himself ul' twain one
new man, so making peace; and that lie
might reconcile both unto God m one body
by the cross. "Whan to the law I fled It
poured its curBes on my head." We et no
better, not even sober, until we find Christ.
Youetuieu to Christ and then you get
them better, nd not till then; you get a
mau converted and then he will stay sober
and not tUl then, if once he has fallen.
Yimi get men to accept Christ as their keep
er of the law, then and not till then will the
law makcthetu better; for "Christ is the
end of the law to anyone that beJievetli,". '
Now if the reverend gentlema-n will read
the entire 7th chapter of Hebrew he will find
that if the law could reform men,, or man
could have been made better by law, then
there wwdd have beeu no Calvary no Cross
and no' cleansing by UUe blood of Christ
from all sin.
We ImVe only examined the gentleman's
theology, which is all full of mistakes and
radical errors; but his mutilation of JJlack
Btone was horrible; "conglomeration of dis
jointed fragments" of trgreat author, li the
gentleman will amend his theology, or
answer, in the colums of the Express, our
quotations of Holy Writ, wo will then re
view his little knowledge of Blacksume.and
also show how little he knows of civil law,
in Oregon', making men better, We want
no "ipse dixit," but facts. Kespeetfully,
J. iL KlKKPATAICK.

J, H. Stlne, Formerly Editor of the
Lebanon Express, Killed. .
From Albany Herald.
McMinnville, Or., Nov. 30. J. H.
Stlne, editor of the Whiteson Advance,
was shot lat evening by N. C. Cook, a
section boss on the narrow gauge rail
road. Cook then shot himself twice.
Both men were killed instantly.
Stlne, Cook, and a German section
baud bad been to Amity on foot, a dis
tance of three miles from Whitessn.
When about balf way back on their
return, Si ine walked about ten feet in
advance of the others, Cook quickly,
without warning, drew a, Smith &
Wesson pistol and fired at Stine, strik
ing him in the buck of the neck and
breaking the spinal column. Turning
the pistol ou himself lie fired one shot
inlo his breast, missing thehcartabnut
two inches. He then placed the pistol
to his temple and fired a second shot
through his brain. The section hand,
thinking his time had also come,
started to run at the first shot and did
not stop until he girt to Whiteson. A
squad of men returned and found imtli
men dead. No cause is known for the
deed, ex-opt it was a sudden fit of
mental aberration. Cook has been act
ing singular for some days, and did
not work Friday und Saturday. The
section hand with them said that he
had taken but two drinks of whisky
during the day and showed no signs of
intoxication. The men were good
friends, and always on the best of terms.
They were talking pleasantly at the
time if. the shooting. They were both
about 48 years of age aud veterans.
Cook belonged to Company A, Thirty-
fifth New Jersey Infantry of Trenton,
and Stiue to Company D, Second Penn
sylvania cavalry. Nothing Is kuovyn
of Cook's family relations. He wag
brought here by the coroner last ijight,
and hundreds visited the remr.lns to
day. He was a flue physical upecimeu.
btine leaves a wife and one child. He
was a good writer, au able country edi
tor, and bad been connected with
papers at Independence, Grant's Pass,
St. Helen's, Lebanon, Brownsville and
other points. He will be burled at In
dependence, where he was married a
bout six years ugo.
Cook, the suicide, was a member nf
Lincoln-Garfield ' post of Portland
They have been notified of his death.
His remains were sent to Portluud on
the afternoon train.

The "patter of the rain upon the rouf
still continues at intervals, and a longer or
harder "rainy spell" doea not seem to be re
called to the memory of even the proverbial

Ail sorts of out-door work has
ceased for the present. Fortunately the W
rains have been warm and what grain h&u
been sown before the rains is looking
splendidly. Feed, too, has kept good, and
stock of all kinds is doing well. The wild
geese also are doing well, and are mure nu
