[Head:]    Pass Him Around.
     Some weeks ago a man named O. A. Phelps came to this city and lectured
on two nights, the first night on freethought, and the next on Populism. At the
close of his first nights [as typed] lecture several questions were propounded,
of historical and scientific character, which the lecturer proposed to explain or
answer. As the meeting was about drawing to a close, Rev. Mr. Stine of this
city propounded a question or two, in substance thus: “Did you, Mr. Phelps,
ever hold a public discussion in Kansas with Mr. Churchill?"  Mr. Phelps was
uncertain that he had. Mr. Stine then asked if he had discussed with a Mr.
Fortune, in the same state. Mr. Phelps admitted that he had. Then said
Mr. Stine,  there was a man named Phelps, a freethought lecturer, who
publicly discussed with these persons named, who was the guest while at that
place of the family of a Mr. Carnahan; that this man Phelps alienated the
affections of the wife of Carnahan, broke up the family, and later joined the
woman and lived with her as man and wife.  Mr. Phelps was taken aback and
tried to explain, but utterly failed to do so.  Then to establish the identity of
this man Phelps, and the truthfulness of the charge made by our fellow-citizen,
Rev. Mr. Stine, communication was opened with the secretary of the Masonic
lodge at Douglass [sic], Kansas of which lodge Mr. Carnahan, the deeply
wronged husband, is an honored member, the result of which correspondence
has been to confirm Mr. Stine's expose of this fiend as having deeply wronged
a happy family, robbing the husband and children of a happy home, and the
mother of her honor and love, and later proved false to the woman who had
been deceived in a moment of weakness and forsakes her [sic].
     A private letter from a nephew of Mr. Carnahan, the woman's former
husband, writes of date of August 27, 1894: "Mrs. Carnahan told my mother
when here during the trial of her son that she (Mrs. C.) long ago saw the error
of her way, and that if she could live but one week with her family in the
former relation she would be ready to die."
     The secretary of the Masonic lodge at Douglass, Kansas, of date August
23, 1894, writes to the secretary of the lodge here thus:
     "I am in receipt of your letter of inquiry dated Aug. 11, 1894.  In reply I
have to say:  That a fellow by the name of Phelps, a free-lover or free-thought
lecturer, did, through his influence, cause the wife of Mr. S. P. Carnahan, a
member of our lodge, to desert her home. There is no doubt but that after
leaving her home she joined this fellow Phelps. How long these relations
existed I do not know. I have never talked with Bro. C. on the matter, as it
occurred [sic] before I came here. I have no doubt but what Bro. Stine has
struck the right man, and he is correct in his charge if this is the same Phelps;
and he no doubt is the same man, as Bro. Stine would recognize him, having
lived here at time the [sic] matter occurred.
     Bro. Stine is a Mason, but not a member of our lodge.  I have always
known him as an aggressive man, ready to denounce wrong wherever he finds
it. Please convey to Bro. Stine my thanks for his denunciation of a villain.
Yours, fraternally,
   G. Nagle, Secretary.”
     Mr. Phelps spoke at Bandon after leaving this place, and then departed, we
have been led to believe, for the California coast country. The HERALD
believes he is the same as has been charged with this great crime, and if there
is no written law to reach him and mete out to him a due punishment, there is
a way for the general public to be warned against him that he may have no
resting place sufficiently long to repeat his deception and practice his devilish
machinations to the hurt of others.  Look out for him and pass him along. The
newspapers will be his Nemisis. +
