HOUSTON. JZ. MZUtmm; Ths Missouri Tf t Oath-What Bishop Hawks thinks of it. Editors Missouri Democrat—A friend Jim called my attention to the follomiug in yetr paper of Monday the 2bth : ** We learn that Bishop llawks, of the Episcopal Church in ihiB State, has adnstd the clergy of bis dioc^e to take the Con- stitutional oath, or if they cannot oonsol- ♦nUously do bo, io abandon preaohing in this Stat*." I do not know who authorized you to say so much. My real position is this: I am opposed to the oath pressed upon the clergy not because by it the State in- frincea upon my divine commission. In my judgment it does not. If I thought it did, I would never take the oath—and I have taken it. My opposition is that it is re- trospective in it" action, and that it also singles out particular classes for its appli- cation. My adtioe to all clergymen who have asked it (and there are mauy of various Christian denominations who have done M) has bsstt always—if you can take the oath conscientio...
