Church History Vol. 4 Chapter 37 Page 640


640 CHAPTER 37.


THE early part of the year 1890 was not marked by any special items of importance; yet correspondence from different parts of the world indicate that the ministry were active, and that the different departments of church work were moving satisfactorily.

On January 12 Colton Branch was organized at Colton, California, by Heman C. Smith; William Gibson presiding elder, Charles Baly clerk.

February 11 a branch was organized in Maine by Elder J. C. Foss, and called the Head Harbor Branch.

March 3 Elder J. D. Erwin received some rough treatment at the hands of a mob in Howard County, Arkansas. Of this he writes:

Persecution still continues. I was taken out last night and severely beaten. According to appointment I went to Euclid, Howard County, and preached Saturday night, and Sunday at eleven o'clock in the forenoon, also at night, remaining over Monday night. Between midnight and day an armed and disguised mob dragged me from my bed, carried me about one mile, tied me down over a log and whipped me severely with large switches, and told me if I come back they would tie the rope around my neck. and tried to make me say I would leave the State. Then presenting me with a bottle they called strychnine asked me to drink; then they presented me with a bottle of whisky, saying "by - drink;" but I refused. The people are in a terrible stir about it. I am going to apply to the laws of the land for help.
