Logansport Journal, Friday, March 5, 1897, p. 3. CHURCH TROUBLES A Daughter Demands a Father's Expulsion or Withdrawal Threatended Division of the Congrega- tion the Result. FRANKLIN, Ind., March 5.-The trouble in the Presbyterian church, the oldest and weathliest in the city, is the sole topic of conversation. It is caused by the feeling against Harvey [sic] G. McCaslin. The church is rent over the affair, and it looks as though the result will be serious. Las November Mr. McCaslin suddenly left his home and went west. It was stated that he had separated from his wife, and this was confirmed when he returned avout the first of the year and began planning a division of his estate. The family is among the most prominent in the county. the mem- bers lived in an elegant home just south of the city, and Mr. McCaslin owned a fine farm of 250 acres. Mr. and Mrs. McCaslin had been married for twenty-three years and one daugh- ter resulted from the union. Miss Ethel McCaslin, twenty-two years old. The latter is a talented musician, has appeared in concerts in various cities of the State, where her piano numbers have been highly prized. The family apparently was a happy and de- voted one, and the separation came as a great surprise. Rumours were pre- valent that Mrs. McCaslin was jeal- ous of the attentions of her husband to Miss Ethel Murphy, seventeen years old, a domestic employed by the family. Whatever the cause Mr. Mc- Caslin offered no opposition to the divorce which she sought, and there was a previous settlement, by which she received $2,500 alimony. With her daughter, she removed to apart- ments in the city, while Mr. McCaslin remained at the farm. Three days after the divorce has been granted Mr. McCaslin went to Brown county, the home of Miss Mur- phy, and returned with the girl as his bride. The McCaslins are Presby- terians, and it was incombent on the church trustees to take some cognis- ance of the rumours afloat. After a full discussion the session, by a vote of five to four, decided to suspend Mr. McCaslin for six months, at the expiration of which time he was in- vited to bring his wife and be restored to full fellowship. Miss Ethel McCaslin is a director of the church choir, one of the best in the Snyod [sic] of Indiana. She met with the choir last Sturaday night, and no- tified its members that she could no longer continue with the church unless her father was expelled. He had be- come loathsome to her because of his conduct, and she could no longer meet him, even as a communiicant, in the same congregation. Thereupon she gave notice that she would resign her directorship. The choir was much sur- prised, but after a full discussion, and after speeches by M. B. Fisher and J. M. Dunlop, two of its members, her po- sition was sustained, and the choir voted to discontinue its connection with the church until the session had considered its action. As a conse- quence on Sunday morning the choir loft was empty, and the pastor, Rev. T. P. Marshall, was compelled to lead the congregational singing. The members of the choir occupied seats in the congregation. Sunday night the same scene was re-enacted. Miss McCaslin attended services at another church, and she has refused to return until her father is expelled. The matter is being very generally discussed by the congregation, and the preponderance of opinion sustains Miss McCaslin and the choir in the stand taken. A member of the choir re- ports that the choir is conscientious in the matter. If Mr. McCaslin was guilty he should not be retained; if innocent, he should not be suspended. In case the session fails to consider, there will probably be a split in the congregation, as the majority of the flock seem to side with the choir. Mr. Marshall is said also to support the choir, which is the strongest in the city, with its membership composed of the very best people in Franklin, to- wit: Miss Ethel McCaslin, Miss Laura McCaslin, Mrs. Anna McCaslin and Miss Ruby Woollen, sopranos; Miss Eda Hulsman and Mrs. Rell Mc- Naughton, contraltos; Mess'rs Jeff Bolser, Dale House, H. C. Voris, M. B. Fisher and O. I. Demaree, tenors, and J. M. Dunlop, Dr. F. C. Freeman, Charles Kerlin and Fred Dunlap, bassos.
