Tarred and Feathered

     Huntington, Ind., Sept. 18.—Joseph A. Wildman, a United Brethren minister, was tarred and feathered by a crowd of 100 because on Sunday night he rose in prayer meeting in one of the churches and said:
     “I suppose there have been more lies told from the pulpit and sacred desk today than were ever known before. While I want to give all honor that is due Mr. McKinley, still when he was living he was nothing but a political demagogue.”
     Wildman has no regular charge.
