Jasper was notified to appear before it. He at one time refused to do so on the ground that, in his opinion, the Council was not a legal one.
The next day the Council appointed a committee, consisting of Revs. Binga and Troy, who waited upon Mr.
Jasper, and told him that if he would come to the Council and make any charges against Rev. Wells, that he should be heard, and that justice would be meted out to both of them according to the canons of the Church. Jasper then concluded to go, and did go, and preferred charges against Mr.
Wells; that he Wells had called the word of God "base fabrication," and all he Jasper wanted was that Rev. Wells should go and take back what he had said about him in a card publication in the Richmond Dispatch. Wells denied having said anything derogatory about Mr. Jasper and his theory in reference to the sun; that he Wells meant his card as an answer to something that the New York Witness had said about the colored people.
The Rev. Walter H. Wells had written the card referred to, brought it to him, and asked him to read it; afterwards what he Brooks thought of such a card. Brooks told Wells that he would advise him not to publish such a card; but Wells said to Brooks that he would do it. Brooks said, "Well, if you will, do it, but if I were you I would strike out 'base fabrication.
The Council took action on the matter, and as we can best understand it, condemned Wells for the publication of the card, and passed an order that Wells should retract what he had published about Mr. Wells published a card which he took occasion to criticise Rev. John Jasper's theory in relation to the rotation of the sun, in which he used the words "base fabrication" in connection with Jasper's theory.

This card excited the indignation of Mr. Jasper and his congregation. It was decided that the subject should be laid before a council composed of the minister and two deacons from each colored Baptist church in the city and vicinity. Edwards, of Manchester, was elected secretary. At the second sitting of the council, a committee was appointed to invite Mr. Jasper to attend, in order that he might make a statement of his grievance before the council came; and by an invitation, addressed the council, stating that he had been accused by the Ebenezer Church of uttering "base fabrication" in his sermon on the rotation of the sun.

Elder Wells stated that he had no reference to Elder Jasper at all in the article referred to, but, on the other hand, he meant to reply to an article which he Wells had seen in the New York Witness. Binga, of Manchester city, offered the following resolutions, which he hoped would meet the case and express the feelings of the Ebenezer Church and Rev. John Jasper:.
Resolved, That we regret to have wounded the feelings of Brother Jasper, and would modify the article published by us on the 28th day of March, , by saying we do not hold the views expressed by Elder Jasper, and therefore do not subscribe to his theory. Resolved, That we heartily extend to the pastor and church a fraternal hand.

These resolutions were adopted and approved by Rev. John Jasper and Rev. Wells, who signed with the understanding that the secretary of the council was to go immediately to the Dispatch office and publish a card retracting everything that the Rev. Wells had said about Rev. Jasper; but the secretary failed to do it, and it has never been done satisfactorily to Mr.
Jasper unto this day. We have received the following communication from a committee of the Ebenezer Baptist Church colored in this city, in reference to a sermon recently delivered by John Jasper. The committee is composed of the pastor and two deacons of the church:. Editors of the Dispatch: "Sirs,--Allow us through your most excellent paper to make a single statement in reference of ourselves as members of a colored Baptist church in this city.
The sermons we have allusion to are those concerning the sun running around the earth, and the earth standing still. We present these lines to the public, both at home and abroad, that to all whom they may come to may know that we, a church, do hereby enter our solemn protest against all such base fabrication, from whatever source it may come. This is not the case. Editor: --You will please to enter these few lines in your paper to the public, and let the public know that I have said nothing about the sun running around the earth in the sermons I have preached.
And I never knew before that I had to go to the Ebenezer Baptist church to know what part of the Bible I was to preach. I thought that that was God's business to see what part I should preach, and not that church. When the people were jumping out of the windows and doors, and seized their things, all was right. Then the gentleman's own wife got hurt, but nothing was said.
He did not ask you to put that in the papers, and say if I had been preaching 'Jesus Christ and Him crucified' the people would not have been hurt.

But, as soon as a few got hurt at my church, he says it was because I was not preaching 'Christ and Him crucified. Its deep jealousy and hatred that caused it to be put in the papers, and nothing else.

John Jasper, of Richmond, is not without good company in his opinion that the world is flat, Page 44 and that "the sun do move. The name is formed from a Greek word meaning to seek or inquire. An active propagandist of Zetetic doctrine is Professor William Carpenter, 71 Chew street, who has been in this country about five years. He is a man of medium height, auburn hair and beard, with bright, restless eyes and animated manner. He has literary tastes, and when the reporter called he was turning off a clever little acrostic poem.
There are plenty of men who agree with him, but there are few who are willing to acknowledge the belief. It is unpopular and keeps a man back in the world, but I care nothing for that. The founder of the Zetetic school, the professor explained, was an English chemist named Rowbotham, whose views were formed as far back as In he lectured at Greenwich, Professor Carpenter's native town. The Professor, then a journeyman printer, laughed at the idea of a man going about lecturing that the earth was flat, but went to hear him. In he issued a work on the subject.
He put his thoughts directly in the type, and it took him three years, working in his leisure hours, to compose the work. Since then he has gotten out a number of pamphlets, and with pen and voice has stoutly maintained the Zetetic doctrine. The doctrine is that the earth is a flat disk, with the North Pole at its centre.
The seas encompass the land and impenetrable ice surrounds the seas, "and what is beyond," says the Professor, "God only knows. The sun and other heavenly bodies are lights in the firmament, circling over the earth around the pole-star as a centre. If the earth were a globe, water would have to be curved, but since water is demonstrably always level, the earth cannot be round. Rowbotham's views were originally suggested by observations on the old Bedford Canal. For twenty miles in Cambridge county, England, it runs in a straight line: Rowbotham spent some nine months along the canal in daily observations, and in whatever way he looked along the surface of its waters he always found it level.
When Professor Carpenter's book was published, it Page 46 made a zealous convert of Mr. John Hampden, who, the Professor says, is a descendant of the Hampden of Cromwell's time. He bought Carpenter's copyright, and challenged the scientific world to prove the convexity of any surface of water. Professor Alfred R. The test was made in March, Professor Wallace's method was the placing of three signal disks along the canal for six miles, all at the same elevation.
His proposition was that if there was no curvature of the earth's surface, a telescope, placed at the same elevation, would bring all the disks into line, but that, in fact, the central disk would show above the terminal disks. Carpenter was Hampden's referee. Coulcher was Wallace's referee. They disagreed as to the result of the test, each claiming victory on his side. Walsh, editor of the London Field, who was the umpire, decided that Wallace had won, and paid over the money to him.
Hampden denounced Wallace as a swindler, and was eventually sent to jail for twelve months for libel. He sued for his money, and got a verdict on the ground that the wager was illegal. The affair bankrupted Hampden, but did not shake his conviction. Professor Carpenter eagerly meets every objection advanced.
