nents for the next conference. There-!
torl went over until to-morrow, and the
ie of tiie day, ,4Tbe Church and Public
Morality," was taken up.
Alter reading an essay by P. W. B. Hill
:>f Macon. Ga., on the ""Legal Restraint of
the Vices of Society," Lev. Joseph Pos
nett of the Wesleyan Methodist Church
at Hull, England, delivered the first ap
pointed address of tiie morning session.
His subject was the same as that of the
Judge H. L. Sidley of Marietta, Ohio,
ke on the "Marriage and Divorce
-."' His proposition was that the
tight to divorce is complements!to and
landed by tlu> right to marriage, not
only in cases of adultery, but also of de
ion. Marriage was a means, no* an
. .pedal <■:;>. s excepted. I fod and na
had made those relations the uni
ersal right of mature men and women.
This included the right of each party to
union to its essential benefits. De
ion deprived the innocent party of
.unless made a ground of divorce.
-t of it ail is in principle, deduc
ble alike from reasou and scripture, tbat
right to marriage on its essential
mefits and aa the only condition for
: sous propagation, es para
ant to the rule of its permanence in
••. wrong to an innocent partner,
whereby the fundamental obligations of
the relation are abnegated, finally, it
eaves the innocent parties escape from
propagation with the foulness of un-
Icnown adultery and from being forced
by the weakness of desertion into a life
Thomas* Huddle, Head ?>laster of the
Bible Christian College of Devon, Eng
and, spoke on the attitude of tlie church
toward amusements. He said there is
nothing in tiie spirit of the Now Testa
ment op iI to moderate and rational
of amusements. Whatever may bo
duty of the church toward am us
ments, it is ol viously not her duty to be
hostile toward them.
Bishop Fosh of Philadelphia said the
of children was play, and as
athletics, the jollier the better, if they

New Yokk, Oct. lit.-Officials of the
:.ic Mail Steamship Company to-day
. imannrtt that they have decided to issue
•X.,000 debenture bonds for the pur
pose -iff hnilding three new steamers for
li.o rhin* tn.de, it^thecompany succeeds
in obtaining a contract for the mail serv
ice from the Government. Tho steamers
will be first-class in speed and equipment,
but will not be of the extremely heavy
tonnage called for by the requirements of
tirst-class subsidy payments under the
new law. They will, however, be the
largest and fastest steamers ever put on
the Pacific Ocean.
It is understood negotiations have
closed between the Pacitic Mail and the
Occidental and Oriental Company by
which the latter company will discon
tinue operations, leaving the Paeifle Mail
alone in the field. Pacific Mail will then
double its service, making twenty-six
trips per year thereafter, instead of "thir
teen, and it is for this increased service
the new steamers are necessary.

voting his remarks for the most part to
the subject of tho loss of the World's Fair
to New York City, charging the Repub
licans with selling out the people's inter
ests for supremacy in a faction fight. He
referred particularly to the hanging up in
the Legislature of the bill introduced be
fore the matter came up in Congress. Tho

Georgo Smith, who was lynched a week

sixteen wounds and bruises on tiie head

This work. Colonel Crocker said, would

on the bonds if they were sold, and yet the
work was one which the company would j
be ulad to undertake, and may do so be
"We will not begin," said he, "until we
are ready to go at it all along. I hope

SAILING UNDER FALSE COLORS.
DEVICES TO CREATE A MARKET
FOR EASTERN FRUITS.
Peaches Packed at Baltimore and Sent
Out Under California Labels-
Special to the Rkcord-TJnion.
Nkw Yokk, Oct. 19.—The Commercial
Bulletin, referring to the charges in a
California agricultural newspaper that
Baltimore peaches had been packed under
California labels this season, says that
journal is not mistaken—peaches have
been packed in Baltimore and sent out
under so-called California labels. Some
of the peaches are excellent and doubt
less hold their own in the contest with
average California goods, but others, ac
cording to competent judges, not only
fail to come up to the California standard,
but would not do justice to Eastern pack
ers if exhibited as a fair average speci
men of tbeir work. If tho fact that labels
used by California packers have been
counterfeited, we faii to discover any
proof, but it is no secret tbat goods hear
ing labels of non-existing canners have
been shipped out of Baltimore this sea
son. In other words, labels artistically
arranged to suit the circumstances, yet
Steering clear of a counterfeit, could
doubtless be discovered without calling
I into service a modern Vidocq.
We learn of one instance where goods
! thus falsely labeled have been ottered iv
I the Eastern market, but whether by the
t authority of the packer or not is uncer
i tain. Upon careful inquiry facts were
j elicited going to show that nearly all
; Baltimore goods under California labels
j are thus turned out at tbe instigation of
l Western dealers. That is to say, those
I dealers bought goods unlabeled from the
packers, and bad specially prepared Cali-
I fornia labels placed on tbe cans. This is
; really no new Western trick. In fact, it
j is on tho chestnut order, but that Califor
nians should be indignant is not to bo
( surprised, however, and success should
I attend their efforts to run down the game
| in this connection. It maybe proper to
\ state tbat salesman for Eastern jobbers
! have frequently dropped the hint that
; they could make a very nice turn if their
\ principals would condescend to put in
Eastern peaches under tbe California
label. Tbo Jiull>>tin is aware of several
instances where such a proposition was
indignantly frowned down, but it fails to
discover evidence of the deception which
has been practiced in this city. Crooked
work of tliis kind is sure to come to the
surface sooner or later.

I regret to hear that the new torpedo
ship Vulcan, from which great things
wero expected, must be pronounced a
complete failure. She was intended to
have a cruising speed of twenty knots.
She has never been driven more than
eighteen, and that only for short periods,
and she is now hopelessly hors dv com

It is a sin and shame that in this, tho first
engineering country in the world, the
money of the taxpayers should be wasted
on guns that cannot shoot and boilors
that are unable to steam. The reason of
tho failure is the same in both cases—a
faulty system of construction. Similar

all this experience, put on board the De

that the Congress was on the point of

the fact that the industry ot potato grow
