Warrensburg to tako action upon tho res.

pastor of tho First Cumberland Prosby.
tcrian church, from that body and also
upon .his renunciation of tho ministry.
What that action may be it Is of course Im
possible to say, but it is probable that both
will bo accepted.
Tho Lexington presbytery comprises
about forty churches and numbers about
seventy members composed of tho minis
ters and laymen of tho various churches.
Cumberland church Is among tho number
and Mr. Bowers, as its pastor was a mem
bor. His resignation of tho pastorato
would naturally necessitate his resigna
tion as a member of tho presbytery and
this matter will rccolvo ilttlo atten
tion. His renunciation of tho min
istry Is a moro serious matter and linloss
Mr. Bowers should reconsider his action
and decide not to renounce tho ministry no
charges will bo preferred against him and
tho presbytery will consider tho notion as
voluntary. If he should decidoto with
draw his renunciation, which it is hardly
probable he will, charges will bo mado and
atrial will follow.
Mr. Bowers has not yet signifiod his in

New York, Oct 21. An Obfo editor
k'aT'lnfj written to' Mr. Blaine that the
Democratic? papers were parading him as
an opponent of the" McKlnley bill, ho re
plied as follows:
John Hopley, iMltor of the Journal, Bucy.
Augusta, Mo., Oct. 14.-My Dear Sir:
You inform m that tho Democratic paper
lii yodr town and many Democratic papers
throughout Ohio keep tho following para
graph standing' iri typo I "But there is not
a scctiou or line lit tho cdtiro bill (McKln
ley tariff J that will open a market for an
other bdshel of wheat or another barrel of
pork." Jani-M G. Blaine to Senator Frye,
This sentence is garbled and tauen irom
its proper connection,
impression. What I
It creates a wrong
did say is tho fol-
lowing: "I do not doubt that in many re
spects tho tariff bill pending In the sen
ate Is a just measure and that most
of ltd provisions aro in accordance
with the wiso policy of protection,
but that thero is not a section or line
In tho entiro bill that will open a market
fof another bushel of wheat or another
pound of porfe" The letter In which this
paragraph occurs was tvrltton to Senator
Frye on July 11, 1690, and the McKlnley has gt lea tho Anti.pamellites the "Cler
bill did not become a law until Octobor 1 (.,, ,., it
nearly three months thereafter.
In my letter to Senator Frye I objected
to the bill because it did not contain a re
ciprocity clause, which would provide a
market for wheat and pork, for other pro
ducts of tho farm and for vari
ous fabrics. Beforo the bill was
finally passed the reciprocity clause
(fl. In.tvto and a lawn nHMttnn .fl
m,J. n Ik. -n He, f. nlll ll..n.lnia Via 1
iwm frnm what I ald In mv letter that the
nblectlon which I mado to the McKInlev .
bill was entirely removed before the bill
became a law.
Let me further say that the reciprocity
clause has given ample market for many
barrels of flour nnd many pounds of pork.
Brazil, somo months since, entered Into a
treaty by which many American articles are
admitted free. Flour Is made free and pork
is admitted at a nominal duty. Cuba and
Porto Rico have reduced tho duty on
flour from $5.80 a barrel to II
(which gives us the market) besides
putting nearly 100 articles of Ameri
can production on tho free list San
Domingo has made a reciprocity treaty
with flour and pork upon tho free list, be
sides a large number of other articles.
Other treaties for reciprocity are in
progress. Germany, without negotia
ting a formal treaty, has removed the
prohibition on pork, and our government,
in consideration thereof, has left her
sugar on tho free list This opens to us
an entirely new market and (15,000,000 to
(20,100,000 of American pork will be con
sumed per annum whero not a pound has
beon taken for ten years.
The reciprocity provision is proving very
successful, and especially in farm pro
ducts and more particularly In the
case of tho two articles mentioned
in tbo paragraph quoted flour and
pork. I am not, therefore, an op
ponent of the McKlnley bill, as the
Democratic papers of Ohio are constantly
alleging. On the contrary, I have con
tinually supported it ever since It was per
fected by the insertion of the reciprocity
clauso. Very respectfully yours.
James G. Blaine.

London, Oct 22. -General Wolsely,
commanding the forces in Ireland, who re
mained In Dublin during the Parnell fun
eral, will bo a frequent visitor to Cork
until a successor to Parnell has been
elected. It is reported from Cork that the
stock of dealers in blackthorns and heavy
sticks is almost entirely exhausted, and
large additional supplies have been ordered
to bo used, it is understood, as arguments
in tho coming election.
Tho fighting last night was more in the
naturo of a preliminary skirmish and hod
no decisive result and while there were a
number of bruised heads, nobody was
badly hurt Tho real fighting is expected
in course of a day or so. It is said that
many of tho participants in both factions
aro armed with pistols and will not hesi
tate to use thorn.
During Redmond's progress to tho hotel
last night an excited McCarthylte uttered
a loud assertion that Parnell was in a
place tho reverse of heaven and that his
followers ought to bo thore too. This so
angered a crowd of Parncllltes that they
captured tho man and compelled him to
kneel down and pray for ParnelL Thore
wero other incidonts almost equally ludi
crous and exciting.
Dublin, Oct. 22. John F. Redmond,
who arrived at Cork last night, said, in re

fore, by virtue of custom, Mr. Balfour
will bo tho Conservative leader in the
house of commons. The Pall Mall Gazette
says: "Tho appointment Is no bad thing
for tho opposition. Wo prefer to meet
fighting men. It will bo nothing but a
boon to tho Liberals to havo opposed to
them a man specially identified with coer
cion in its most defiant form."
