Aluanci:, Nub., Aniil ,
Editor of Tun Am.ianch llun.u.n,
Dear sir: Perhaps it would ho a good
idea to call the attention of the voters
of Alliance that some of tho churches
of Alliance next Su11tl.1v arc to be
opened for politics only. A little bird
flew around giving information to that
effect timing the past week.
1 wonder what the elders of the dif
ferent presbyteries and conferences
would think if they knew that the Holy
scriptures are to be pat tly omitted in
Alliance to give way to Alliance poli
tics. Those people who go to church
for leligion only, to worship and prav,
will have to go way hack and sit down
so that tho building can he used on the
Sabbath for political purposes. Is it
any wonder that thete arc so many
people indiifcient about attending
places of worship when they do not
know whether they are going to hear
a sermon from Holy Writ or a harangue
on politics? It seems nowadays that
if some preachers differ in politics from
some in their congregations that thev
want to take advantage of their posi
tions in the pulpit where the members
cannot reply. Is such to be the case
next Sunday? If so, then I think
that those preachers hail better leave,
whether there is .1 large salary attached
to the call or not, if thoy want the re
spect of the community. Think of it,
citizens, and he present to hear "Akers
vs. Bucchsenstein" or some other topic
familiar to Alliance citizens.
I would like before closing, as it is
the last opportunity befoie election, to
ask when Mr. Akers got such a change
of heart. He was chairman of the con
vention which nominated Mr. Sexton
for mayor and during that whole term
the saloon keepers paid twcntv-five
dollars for each saloon as a bribe so
they would not be molested for gam
bling. Mr. Akers might explain who
got this monoy, also why he would
support anybody for mnyor, even Fred
BeUold. in preference to an one who
was the choice of J. R. Phelan, and
why he would not vote for a railroad
candidate. Now he expects to be olect
od by the railroad lwys votu. If he
knows, probably all will be explained
