TO ENTER EVANGELISTIC FIELD.
Preaches His Last Sermon at
Clayton Methodist Church
on Next Sunday.
HAS A REMARKABLE CAREER.
After Years of Service as a
Cowboy He Becomes a Con
vert and a Preacher.
The Iteveriml Lincoln McConnell. pastor
of tho ClaMon Methodist Church, has re
signed Ills charge, and will hereafter de
vote himself exclusively to evangelistic
work, with headquarters in Clavton. Doctor
McConnell will preach his last sermon to
his present congregation next Sunday.
Doctor McConncll's successor will bo se
lected at the annual Methodist Conference
to be held at St. John's Church, on Septem
ber 21. It Is thought by the majority of the
members of the Clayton congregation that
the Reverend J. M. Stoltz will be selected
to fill the vacancy. In fact. It is said that
he recently resigned his position with tho
St. Louis Christian Advocate in anticipation
tf receiving the appointment. The Reverend
Mr. Stoltz Is well known to the congrega
tion, us he has filled the pulpit at various
times in the last year In the absence of
the regular pastor.
Doctor McConnell has been pastor of the
Clayton church for nearly two jears. com
ing from Atlanta, Ga.. to accept the ap
pointment. Before that time, he had been
an evangelist, and ennounced his Intention
of ultimately re-entering the evangelistic

BRIGHT PROSPECT FOR PEACE.
State Committee, Acting as a Com

convene and Reorganize the
Kansas City, Sept. 11 A telegram from
St. Louis, dated to-day, quotes the Demo
cratic State chairman as promising the in
fluence of his committee toward settling
the differences in tha Democratic party here.
Tho news is sure to be welcome to the rank
and flic of the party and at least to one
wing of the divided leaders.
Another piece of news contained in the
same telegram- discredits the claim of
Charles Xoland of Cabool, wherein It was
tepresented that Mr. Noland ivaa here with
instructions from Chairman Selbert to probe
the trouble? and make a report to htm.

Origin of the Trouble.
There are two distinct Democratic or
ganizations hero now, each having its own
County Committeo and its own list of can
didates for the county offices. Kansas City
lb usually Republican by a slight ma
jority, due to the .trj0 negro voters
who stick to the Republican party regard
less of all argument or reason. Jackson
County, Including Kansas City, is I.OCO to
3,000 Democratic. Jackson County, with La
fayette, together making tha Fifth Con
gressional District, lg from 2,809 to 3.W0
Democratic in presidential years. So unsafe
Is the local vote, however, that last April
James Heed, Democratic candidate for May
or, overthrew the Republicans' 2,000 ma
jority and took possession of the Repub
lican City Hall, with 3,200 votes to spare.
The danger now is that these 5.300 shifting
votes will &wlng the other way. and with
tho Democrats abusing each other it la not
to marvel that Congressman Cowherd is
leaving no stone unturned to get the Stato
Committee to come to Kansas City.
Up to this spring tha Democratic party
has moved In two columns, but always to
gether. Or.e column, known as the city
and led by Alderman James Fendergaat,
has confined itself to municipal offices, and
in that fight has been aided by the county
column, led by Frank Walsh and J, B.
Shannon. When the county ticket was up
for nomination Shannon's friends would b)
permitted to conduct the primaries and the
conventions, supported by tha city column.
Mnjor lleed'a Ambition.
This year Mayor Reed, encouraged by his
remarkable success, decided to invade tho
County Courthouse, and early announced hH
ticket. In this way, when the primaries
were held, not only were there contesting
delegates in every ward, but there was In
At the close of the polls five of the four
teen wards were found to be close, the big
Third, for instance, being claimed by tha
Pendergast men by thre. votes. When the
day of the convention arrived this County
Committee sat to make up the temporary
roll. Claiming the precedent established
Brit at the Democratic State Convention at
Kansas City, next by the Republican Na
tional Convention at Philadelphia, again by
the Democratic Judicial Convention at Mn
berly, and still again by the Democratic
National Convention at Kansas City, this
committee called for testimony, hearing
which. It threw out enough Pendergast
votes to deliver the Third to the county
column. The same was the result of Inves
tigating three of the other doubtful wards,
the end being to show the county would
effect the organization of the County Con
vention. It was 6 o'clock in the evening before tha
County Committee finished Its sitting, and
on adjourning it was announced that the
convention would be called to order at 7:30.
In the Interim the Pendergast men. con
scious that they were in the minority, an
nounced that they would organize the con
vention on the grounds that they had elect
ed the most delegates at the primaries.
They said they would disregard the tem
porary roll made up by the County Com
mittee, alleging that the Third, Fourth,
fifth and halt of the Seventh wards had
all been thrown out Illegally. They con
tended that charges of police electioneering
were not established, and for that reason
declined to accept the decision of tho Coun
Two conventions resulted, two tickets were
named and two new county committees
elected. In that shape the party stands.
Hard Klarht If United.
Congressman Cowherd, who himself has
been Mayor of the city, became anxious
for the safety of the United States senator
shtp, pointing out that Mayor Reed's 3,300
majority must not be relied upon, and that
live Representatives and two Senators, to
bo voted on at the general election, might
be carried by the Republicans, unless the
Democrats amalgamated. The fact that the
Republicans only required a change of
thirteen to rive them the last Legislature
further aroused the Congressman. He wag
not the more confident when reminded that
two years ago, heaxlly Democratic though
the county is, the Democratic candidate
for County Treasurer was saved by less
than ninety votes, the Republicans claiming
the election even then.
