Mr. Editor ; Please print the follow-
“The next question I consider isthe wis
dom and propriety%f restricting the sale
to druggists fot the purposes mentioned.
If the proposed Local Option law be
adopted m Allegheny:county, then my
Reverend friends' Howard, Witherspoon,
and Boyle cannot lawfully purchase, the
necessary wine for sacramental purposes.
And why? Because the law restricts the
right to sell to druggists, and that for
medicinal and manufacturing purposes
alone. If the conscience? of the Reverend
fathers are seared, could ihe hfimble
Christian man or : woman kneel at the
alter of bis and her Godj and take tbecup,
without the hallowed presence being
broken by the thought, that Us contents
had been surreplitioiisly obtained?; v ?
“When Dr. Howard goes to the druggist
for the sacramental wine, he most either
state a talshood to the druggist (Whidh of
course be would not do), -or .the <lfu|glst
must break the law in y ielding to the re
quest. And if be break the law ; in yield
ing to the requJstTbf the Reverend Doc
ter, for the reason that the wine may be
used for a holy purpose, may I not ask
him to break the law and sell rae a drun
for my bead-ache? The offense Is the
same in both cases.
“To restrict the right tosellto druggists
for, medicinal and manufacturing purposes
is to make every druggist a law-breaker
and every drug store a grog shop. I
therefore hold that the law restricting
this right to druggists alone is unwise.,
impolitic, and should not be adopted.”

The following is (he reply of dhe Econ
om iter to the Beaver Fails citizens’ com*
mittee on the introduction of Chinese la
bor into the cutlery: ; f
To the Citizens of Beaver Falls:
Recently there appeared in our village
of Economy a delegation of citizens from
Beaver Falls, 1 Pa.,' with a series of resolu
tions passed at a meeting of citizens held
in that place, wherein they complain of
the introduction of Chinese lubbr Into the
works of the Beaver Falls Cutlery Com-
pany by the: trustees of nuf Society, an£
the other parties, interested therein, by
which white laborers, to wbom. as is al
leged, continuous employment io said
cutlery had been promised, were displaced
and obliged to leave tbe place, etc., and
demanding relief of out Society, by whose
agents and trustee, and by whose capita]
and influence, asjs.alleged*saidi grievances
have been brought about. Our Society
now deem it a duly to answer ihese com
plaints, and make a public explanation of
its acts, and the more so, since the em
ployment nt Chinese labor has of late,
for various causes, become more frequent
in varioiis parts of the country.
Tbe Cutlery Company is an organized
corporation; transacting its business in the
usual Way, through a board of directors,
our Society being the principal owner of
the stock, but having but one director in
the board, one voice in its man
agement. Our Society as such was'not
notified either by our agents or trustee of
tbe intended employment of Chinese la
borer's by the company, and was not
therefore consulted about it, but having
been notified of the complaints in ques
tion, our council of elders "resolved to ex
amine into the matter.
On such examination we find the com-''
pany organized as aforesaid now in a{spa
rently successful operation. We being
the principal owners, as aforesaid, but
other parties who a long ;time
been connected in themanageraentof our
business in BeaverFklls,having also large
interests therein.
The works now give employment to
about /One hundred and twenty white
persons residents of Beaver Falls, and vi-
I cinity, and about one hundred and ninety
i Chinese. The directors of the Company,
without our knowledge as a society, enter
ed into a contract for the employment of
three hundred Chinese laborers, for a
term of four years, and gave security for
the faithful performance of their Obliga-
These men receive their wages monthly,
and are tree to leave the employ of the
Company at any time, If not satisfied, or
for any reasonable cause they may be dis
charged from the Company.
We have been unable to find that tbe Di
rectors have, in their management of the
business, violated any law or any rights
of any' party, uurir sucn snorrra ne inr
case, the courts are open to decide upon
it. When tbe present Board of Directors
took upon themselves the management of
tbe Company’s business, which was only
done as a last desperate effort to save it
from utter ruin, they found it in a deplor
able condition, heavy losses having been
sustained, and its capital greatly impaired;
Tbe previous efforts to save said cutlery
may well be likened to the efforts of a
crew on board a sinking ship freighted
with a valuable cargo. They applied to
their next kinsman, who, indeed, seemed
willing to aid, on condition, however,
that each should receive a certain portion,
but upon a reckoning being made, it was
found the proffered aid would cost not
only the whole cargo, but require the
ship, and quite an addition besido. In
this ddemma,but one of two things remain*
ed to be done—stop the works at once and
entire!} 7 ; which would have discharged ev
ery employee, and entailed great injury,
if not ruin upon the interests of the place,
or do as was done by tbe managers, call
upon these men to do a part of tbe labor
and strive to continue operations.
The latter was adopted as the better
course for all concerned. And may not
we here express the hope, that aside from
every other view of the question, this
may prove to some of them at least, the
; Cftll spoken of by the evangelical prop&et
—lsaiah, 55:5.
Our Society would be willing for the
Company to dispense with Chinese labor,
in tbe interest of peace and harmony, if
convinced of any wrong done thereby,
but fear to remove one supposed evil by
causing another which would, as we
think, necessarily follow.
Bat to meet tbe accusation of haring
countenanced the course pursued by the
Company for the sake of lucre only, the
council of eldets of our Society have in
structed our trustee, who is and has been
a director in tbe Company, to bring all
our share of the proceeds of the business
during the next eight years, if we so long
remain owners therein, before them, and
they will then direct tbe expenditure of
such money for tbe purpose of supporting
missions, schools, the poor, etc, with par
ticular reference to Beaver Falls; but we
will hot add to the amount of oiir funds
invested in the business if It should not
yleld.a profit. The cutlery business must,
so far as we are concerned, be self sos
taining. As to those white employees, if
there be any, who worked in the cutlerjv
and have, as is alleged, been wrongfully
discharged by our agents or trustees, by
reason whereof they suffered loss, it was
the act of managers or the Board of Dl
rectors of the Company, not of our',soch
ety; hut our Society desire, if any such
cases exist, that they be .properly and le
gaily made to appear before a' court of
justice, and that they he fully compensat
ed ; and we pledge ourselves that if said
. ■
company is not able lb ihake' such cbm- ;
pensatlon, It shall be made by .us.
We have luU confidence in the integri
ty of our trustee, and'the gentlemen who
were concerned with him in the employ
ment of tbe Chinese laborers, that they
acted lawfully and frorn proper motives;
and while, .if consulted, we perhaps
would not, and might not now, approve
of the introduction of such labor, yet for
(he reasons mentioned we do hoi censure
those who did introduce it.
Oor agents in the transaction of business
bt Beaver Palls, and who are interested
in the cutlery, have undergone much
Inttor ahd trouble In their' effort to save
from otter lossnot only their own inter*
estsin the Company, but also the interest

and will not be unmindful of their faith*
If we are rnlstafeerrm dijr views that no,
rights have beenvibktcd' by the mana
gers, of the putlery In the employment of
Chinamen, and this is shown us-by proper
legal authority, we will, as good and law
abiding citizens, insist on their immediate
removal, knd use every endeavor to that
end. Should, however, any lawless and
violent coursebe resorted to in violation
of the legal rights o! the company, we, as
a Societx’, would be compelled to protest;
and in such case, in view of all the "facts,
and onr previous efforts to the
general interests of the place, would feel
obliged to withdraw our m£abs not only
fi thr le b dness, but also from
This we woqld re
under the necessity
has ever been to
yof the place. On
ise men are permit-
y and peaceably at
their work, our share of the proceeds
shall bo appropriated to the religious,
educational and charitable purposes men
tioned above. If our views afe favorably
received, apd at the expiration of four
• years the employment of Chinese labor is
disapproved of by the citizens of Beaver
.Falls, we will be glad to let them have our
interest in the cutlery works upon very
reasonable terms; and if they can operate
. them successfully without such labor wc
will be much pleased.
