Harris, pastor of the Congregational Church at Dwight, Ill., and formerly in charge of a church of the same denomination at Millburn, has been expelled from the Millburn church because of an alleged fraudulent investment scheme conducted by him. Members of the church are said to have invested heavily and many of them say that they are unable to get back their money. Harris, who protested that his dealings were honest and business like, last April was suspended from the church for six months. At the expiration of the time he was expelled by a vote of 27 to 2.
