LEBANON, OREGON, FEBRUARY 16,1894.
A famous humorist once said: "There
Is enough advice lying around loose to
run half a down such worlds to- this."
The more we think upon It, the more
truth we realize In this ti Ite saying. It
Is a constantly recurring fact to every
one In a public position, be he editor,
teacher, or minister. It is especially
prominent in those cmimunlties that
have not outgrown their swaddling
clothes, and are yet in an infantile
gtuge of development.' Hence hamlets
uikJ rural villages are peculiarly sus-
ieplllile to Its recurrence, and form Its
natural habitat. Thn( Lebanon Is not
xerupt fnmi Its effects hus been amply
demonstrated. Not a minister of this
place, who has attempted work other
wise than routine, but has been over
whelmed by advice enough to have
paid the imtlonnl debt, had It been re
deemable In gold coin, and taken at
the giver's estimate of Its value. The
uatonicuiug part of this remarkable
occiirrctict is, that the donors, in most
discs, are not only non-sectarian but
non-Christian as well.' Undoubtedly
the theories of these street-corner re
vivalists and suloon-bummer Salvation
ists would result in great good If chris
tian men and women would only
A man who has never made a pro
fession of religion lsemiiiently(?) qual
ified to conduct a revival. We have
had the pleasure of hearing several
learned(?) discussions, concerning
church law and church management,
during the pust week; but our pleasure
was somewhat marred by the salient
fact that the aspiring theologians had
had no religious experience whatever.
But how can these sugts go on hiding
their light? Verily: there is an
ahuudance of missionary talent lying
latent In Lebanon. It only needs some
one to change it from potential to
kinetic form and the redemption of
Africa is at hand. Where, oh where is
the puissant "Elder" at this orltlcol
moment? Here, surely, is a field in
which even he might labor advan
tageously. Away with such baldtldasb! I have
no sympathy with that braggadocio
spirit which prompts luBng men, or
older ones either, to attend divine ser
vice for the purpose of creating discord.
Mohammed has well said, "There are
some who say, 'we believe In God and
the luBt day;1 but are not really be
lievers; they seek to ceeelvo God and
those who do believe, but they deceive
theniselvn only." No one is deceived
by such flimsy pretext.
Do not understand me, that I am
seeking to defend the management of
the present revival. T am not taking
up any such rtsponslblllty. The min
ister In charge of the meetings is as
sumed t'i understand his own business,
and advice from me would be Imperti
nence. While I may not approve his
management, neither am I at liberty
to say how he shall conduct his ser
vices. I can at least remain away, and
by so dng "no offence oometh."
It Is my opinion that bis new con
verts are essentially human; hence no
better than those of any other denomi
nation. They seem to be in most
things Methodlsilc, but from ull re
ports it s a Methodist revival.

I was a thlukin that It wod be a good
plan to rite yo a Ieter and glv my vews
on a fue subjlcts about the sains and
doinsofsomeof thepursons that hav
bean writln and talkiu about different
Idees and things about here.
A good meney persons don't like
them methidists, some dont kcre for
the babtlsls and some dont like to here
Jhe. salyatinsth Now I like the methi
dists best of all, because they run the
meetln acordln to there own idees, and
they hav only one way to get pople in
to heven; they want to drive them
there and they are havin a hard time
of it for the pople in this citty are a
contrarry set of pople, and they will
not drive worth a sent, nnthcr will
they be coaxed, hut a good maney
could lie bought or hired to get there.
Yo no mr edlter that tims are powerful
hard and It takes money to by suger,
and yo cant git pople to think about
heven when the country is so full of
populists. Now If the metliodists
would cinvict the popllsts then things
would be different, but this is hard to
do, for them babtisU Impotred a
picacher that talked a hole lot about
the popllsts Idees, and this makes It
hard on the methodists and also hard
on them republicans and them old line
dimocrats. Now these poplists have a
good windy subjict to talk about and
they are not slow in improvln there
tlm. Now the best wa out ofthedifl
colty would be to stop preehin and go
into the bisnens of couvertin the pop
lists, Muk them see there eror of there
wickid was and then every thing wold
be esey. 1 tel yo, mr edetor, if elder
wa bak wold com to town he wold be
a powr in the land. I want him to
bring his diissli hord to figer on. I
think ho cold setle this mater in no
time. Now that man that cals bim
self Cal Jew Peper wold not be safto
com to toun for them poplists dont like
the jews, for they think that they hav
made to much monny by workin for
It, and he had bettor be a wanderin
Jew than to expos his self to the com
biueiwratb of the methodists and the
poplists. They wold make it hot for
his hyde. No, csl, stay whare yo air
and dont risk your life here.
The repu'.ilickans had a meeting the
other night and thev exklude the
methodists and likewise the jues and
the poplists. there was a niau got up,
a regulalr old time abolitlonsests and
wanted to kno who paid the tarlf the
man that consomed the goods or the
furiner. I tell you that them republl
caus made it hot for him. I think
that he thought that he would be saffer
on the back seat of the methodist meet-
in house than whare he was then.
kno If eldr wa bak wold of ben thar he
wold of helped this old line republican
mistime he wold helu his self to
naybors smoke house). I wanted to
help this man In his troble hut I was
afraid that thev would hancr me for
bein a spye. Now elder, I have got
the grip and pas word, and if yo wll
come over we will take in the sho next
frida knight. We will have tint to iro
to the methodist meetln after the sho
is over, I wold advist the republicans
to not let so meney poplists in the hal
next time aslamaferd of them. Iklnd
er think that the renublickanes air on
the rite trak but they will have to be
kerefull the next time and hav a good
died-in-the-flax republlckan for a dor
keaper so he wil be able to no a pop
list when he sees one. I tell yo, mr
ertiter, poloticks and religen are getiu
red hot In this town, aud yo had beter
make your paper larger Instid of makin
It smaller, as yo will have lots
things to print about. The oamnane
is on and you will not hav to hunt fur
for itms to print, cause the pople are
beln edlcated on thes Importent sub
I wold advise tho taxpayers of this
toun to not let there clos hang on the
line of nights while the camoaiBlin
on for these poplists are not doing aney
thing but crie hard tims. Yo might
advise the pople to bring in there clos
lines for they might want these to
hang themselves after the reports come
In next June, yo kno that the times
