THE BOOTH CASE. [Newspaper Article] — The Cumberland Free Press — 28 September 1895
THE BOOTH CASE. With regard to a paragraph in last issue re the Booth family, ire wish to make it clear that therein we in no way took exception to the reference made to the case from the pulpitof the Wesleyan Church on Sunday (15th) by Rev. P. J. Stephen. As we stated, there was no truth in tbe lurid press paragraphs that the family were ' starving ', and *' Bleeping on Deas ol rags.' nut lojtr oonamon.-wuen it first came under Mr. Stephen's notioe (which it did almost accidentally) showed a Jack of many household needs ; and these, with the help of the ladies ot his congregation, and otheT friends, Mr. Stephen took steps to supply. His appeal from *he pulpit related directly, to the fact that dangerous ulnesa had been super added to the family's troubles, and in appeal ing for assistance in this respect he mentioned incidentally the depths ot need to which he had known them to come (sod whioh he had as sisted to relieve) during the previous few weeks.

A man with an idol No child would call my doll— And lungs like a Stentor, U shouting. WhPn H whito.llMuiod nrannlijir Would fain be a teacher Of doctrines 'tis hard to assent to, That Britons are Jem, And stand in the shoes Ot the Lost Tribes, wherever the; vent to. His mote, with a Bible, Indulges in libel On minister, parson, and priest ; They're pagans, they're thieves He asserts and believes — And each bears the Mark of the Beast. Hark 1 with timbrels and drumming ' The Army ' are coming, You hear them in every direction ; , They arrive — form a ring — Do a shout, and a sing — Then proceed to take up a collection. And the people Bit round On the scats and the ground, And the booys with their donahs are mating, They disciiBs their affairs, And never one cares A fig for the precious orating. W.
