Washington. Oct. 23. Robert E. Peary,

BMALL CROWD ATTENDS
Xew York Shows I.lttle Interest in
tbr Movement Denies Story
Abont Wife Wkud Fnndi.
New York. Oct. 23. It was a new Dowie,
chastened, reserved and apologetic, who
addressed the meeting of the Zlon Resto
ration Host in Madison Square Garden this
afternoon. It was clearly made evident
that Dowle. as a mere dispenser of the
gospel, is unattractive and uninteresting
to a New York audience. The Garden was
half filled, and this was sadly commented
on by the apostle.
When, at the close of the processional,
about 1.000 visitors left the hall. Dowle
arose. He did not display anger or call
the deserters names, as he did last week,
but in a tone of sadness he said:
"I hae no wish to detain a single per
son in this auditorium who does not wish
to remMn during the rest of th sertire.
I Intend to speak until about i o'clock
and I shall esteem it a faior not merely
to mysvlf. but to all In this building. If
you klrdly retain your seats."
Dowie thn delivered his address, which
vas on 'The Man of Sin Revealed and
the Falling Away; or. The Roman Papacy
and the Denominational Apostasy."
Dowle's remarks were trite and com
monplace. They did not seem to awaken
any interest In the audience, and be was
not Interrupted once.
Even in his discourse Dowie seemed
careful not to grie offense. He quoted
Cardinal Manning on the dogma of papal
infallibility, said all denominations were
decajing and laid this evil at the door of
To show the extent of Masonic Influ
ences." said Dowle. "there was a minis
ter here the other night who had written
an article for publication about me. It was
rather favorable and already In type. But
when he heard me attack the Masons he
went out and rewrote the article into a
long tirade, abusing me."
At to-night's meeting hundreds of seats
were uncccupled. An admission by "Eli
jah" from the stage was that his early
morning "sacrifice of praise and prajer"
meetings hava not been a success, and he
has decided to breakfast at C:50 and have
the first meeting at SiX.
It was then announced by the prophet
that he would hold a brief discourse on
the subject of good and evil. After listen
ing for about ten minutes, the audience
began to yawn. Noticing the lukewarm
Interest displayed. Dowie shouted: "I'm
not afraid of tho devlL I believe the devil
Is getting old and foolish. To-morrow I
am going to get out my whip and lash
the yellow curs for the lies they've been
Dowie's anger was aroused by reports
from Boston that Mrs. Dowle had called
for England with a treasure chest, con
taining securities estimated to amount to
j7.Ot).O0O. He said the story was absolute
ly untrue: that Mrs. Dowle had taken
no steel chest with her, and he reviled
the newspapers for publishing the story.

FOLK TO LECTURE

Declare That St. Joseph Meeting
Was the Most Spontaneous
Outburst of Keal Feel-
Circuit Attorney Kolk. Congressman
Vandivrr and others of the party that
went to St. Josph to attend the opening
of the Folk campaign for Governor, re
turned on the Burlington last night.
Mr. Folk will go to Columbia this morn
ing and deliver a lecture to-night before
the students of the Mlssrurl University on
Politicians who were present at the St,
Joseph meeting and who have attended
the other political gatherings of the year
agree that the occasion could not have
been Improved from any point of view.
That the- audience was the most enthu
siastic of nnv of this year's meetings can
not be disputed. It wus an enthusiasm
that was in no sense forced by the or
dinary method of uttnc "rooters" or Im
porting friends ho bold orfice.
The Tootle Opera-house, where the
meeting was held. Is the largest In St.
Joseph. It has a balcony and two gal
leries. They, with the parquet and the
stage, were filled and people wre standing
at the rear of the seats. Manager Phllley
of the Optra-house estimated the attend
ance. Inside the theater, at 3J0U.
Nearly as many were turned away when
the doom were closed by the manage
ment, owing to the fear of overcrowding.
When Mr. Folk drove to the front of the
building, shortly before S o'clock, the street
was filled with men and women who
wished to hear him.
Congressman Vandlver. whose five-mln-i
te speech following that of Folk, aroused
so much enthusiasm, said jesterday that
any man could talk to such an audience.
"It was the most representative crowd of
Democrats that I have seen. There were
men from every part of the northwestern
section of the State. They were Intelli
gent and alive to the significance of tbe
"I came from the southeast part of the
State to the section farthest ana). I
thought that the people there mould like
to know how we felt about the guberna
torial situation: that we believed in South
east Missouri that if the Democratic party
Intended to hate a platform denouncing
boodlers and hoodling without having Folk
to stand on that platform, a grievous mis
take would be made.
"The reception which my message re
ceived was sufficient to Indicate that the
Democrats of Northwest Missouri believe
as we do in the Fourteenth District."
Speaker Whltecotton came back on the
train. He was one of the most enthusi
astic cheerers at the meeting.
"It was the first time that 1 had felt like
yelling for the last twenty years," he ex
plained. The occasion and the speech
simply made me let out my feelings in
a way that could not be misunderstood."
On the way back to St. I-ouIs tbe fireman
of the train got off the engine and went
back to meet Mr. Folk. ,
"V.'e boys have read your speech." he
remarked. "It is the sort of Democracy
that we like. You may depend upon us."
St. Joseph i. to ail appearances, for
Folk for Governor, though some of the
older practical politicians ore fighting
"If a primary were held now." said one
of the best-posted men in Buchanan Coun
ty, but who Is for another candidate for
Governor. "Mr. Folk would undoubtedly
win. V.'e are expecting tliat the pn-sent
rnthuslas-n will die down. If It does not.
then we lose."
Some comment on the fact that the can
didacy of A. M. 'Woodson for the Supreme
Court will prevent instructions for Gov
ernor. A friend of Folk said:
"The Judicial Convention Is entirely
separate from the State Convention. There
are no tradVs that could be affected by
the fact that Woodson Is a candidate for
the Supreme Court. Instructions for the
delegates to the Slate Convention will be
asked, and we think that the County Com
mittee Is fair enough to grant the re
cjuest." WILL SPEAK AT FLAT RIVER.
Folk Accepts Invitation for Next
