I.nlles of St. Patrick's Parish, Kast St.
Loui. at a meeting yesterday afternoon
offered a rebuke to the male members of
the parish for their alleged lack of interest
"in the chiirch' since the famous controversy
between the parishioners a'nd the Bishop two
years ago. The church has been sadly In
need of extensive repairs and renovations
for the last two years, and tho ladles at
their meeting yesterday afternoon selected
a committee, consisting of leading members
of the parish to solicit funds for Improve
ments. In addition to this, arrangements
were made for a church fair, which will be
held In the East St Louis Music Hall in
November, the proceeds-of which will also
be devoted to the same purpose. The same
.committee will have charge of the fair.
Before the controversy between the par
ishioners and the Bishop, leading members
of the parish were agitating a movement
to create a fund with which to erect a new
and modern church. The present struc
ture has stood for half a century, and be
sides being old-fashioned, has fallen into
decay in many places. The parish Is one
of the largest In the State, and Is said to
rank among the most wealthy in Southern
Illinois. As a result of the controversy
some of the wealthiest members of the
parish aro 'said to have withdrawn their
support, and thus no repairs to the build
ing' have since been made. The roof of the
church Is leaky, and a large portion of the
plastering has fallen, while new pews are
Recently a number of the leading women
members of the' parish held a meeting.
They were ashamed of the condition of the
church and resolved to do their best to
.have it repaired. This meeting led to others
and finally to the big gathering yesterday
afternoon, at which the committee was se
lected and the fair arranged for.
"it Is a' downright shame that the church
has been "permitted to fall into the state of
decay and bad repair that it now Is In,"
said one of the prominent women members
to a Republic, reporter after the meeting.
"Our meeting Is a rebuke to the men of the
parish, and we Intend that they shall pay
for the repairing of the church. We win
pester them until they contribute, and make
those who do not so heartily ashamed of
themselves that they will wish that they
had. It will take a large sum of money to
put the church In good condition, but we In
tend doing It, no matter what It costs."

selected yesterday afternoon are:

Washington, Sept. 23. In addition to the
sorrow felt everywhere for the death of
President AIcKlnley, the Missouri Republic

concern. It relates to the question of future
distribution of Federal patronage.
So much are the party workers disturbed

Mr. Aklns has been in Washington several
days. on. -this Important-mission. -He has
said very little .about It, and. In .fact, liS
answered all, inquiries- in a vague. and eva
sive manner: that he "has no special busi

authority, however, for the-statement that
Mr. Aklns has business here of very con
siderable Importance, and which may in

The President has been too much pressed
with more general business thus far to take
up seriously the question of Fedentl patron

where the Senate must confirm remains to
be proven. With the Senate Republicans
Colonel Kerens Is strong. He Is on close
terms with leaders of that'bedy, and as

senatorial allies, although they may not be

good showing whenever he takes an active

Colonel Kerens Is, moreover; very well
liked by the President, who' for obvious rea
