TOICE OF THE CHURCHES
Mrs Mane Merrick talked of the evan
gelistic work In which she is engaged This
work, Mie said, is the foundation of the
temperance work Some organizations,
like pertons, are faid to be born with a
silver spoon in their mouths, but the Wo
man's Christian Temperance Union was
born with a text of Scripture
One of the features of the day was an ex
hibition of a petition called ' The Voice of
the Churches," w Inch will be presented to
Congress when 11 reassembles. Tor eight
years the union has asked that prohibition
be enforced in the District of Columbia
Last year a certain Senator was heard to
say that if he could be assured that the
cliiirchH wanted it, he would give his vote.
Accordingly, about seven months ago
tlie ladies started on "The voice of tlie
churches " The pastor's signature is ob
tained first, then that of every elder,
deacon, and steward, and other officers
of tlie church The petition was shown yes
terday Mrs Bartletl has obtained the
votes of (he thirteen Baptist churches of
the citj ; Mrs Davis, tlie twelve Metho
dist; Mrs Callln, four Congregatlonalisl;
Mrs Shelton, two Christian; Mrs nen-
dnckson, two congregations of Triends;
Mrs Heudrlek-son, one United Brethren
church; Mrs Merrick and Mr Gotwald,
one-half of all the Presbjterian and Luth
eran churches in the city
Besides these the votes of several organi
zations such as the Central Union Mission,
and Young Men's Christian Association have
been obtained. Mrs. Clinton Smith, the
superintendent of the department of legis
lation and petition, exhibited thisintercsting
petition and it was obtained under her
direction. A. Senator and a member of tlie
House have promised to present the petition
to the two bodies.
NECESSITY OF UNION.
Mrs. T. A. Williams, president of the
Northwest Union, made an eloquent address
and urged upon the ladies the necessity
of union, organized and systematized
One of the strongest speeches of the meet
ing was made by Mrs S. II. Martin. She
took as her subject "Victories." Tlie
'greatest victory of the women of the union
was that which had been achieved over
themselves They would liave preferred
to btay at home, but ictoncb over their
feelings and a bense of false modesty so
prevalent nowadaays, they had engaged in
the grand, glorious work of temperance.
She appealed to the women of the District
to join the union.
Mrs. S. I). La Tetra, who is superintend
ent of the Department otGood Citizenship of
the World's W. C. T. U., was the next
spaker. The right kind of citizenship
knows no race, color or sex. distinctions.
The right kind of citizens vote for the ex
termination of all legalized traffic in rum,
opium and the putting down of every form
An Indian maiden of the Cherokee tribe,
Salce Oomasuyah, spoke in relation to the
temperance work amung her people and
told several touching little incidents of
the futile efforts made by Indian women
to stop the rum traffic.
The Rev. George V. Leechclosed the meet
ing with the benediction.

JUSTICES MET IN SECRET
Agreed Not to Cut Fees in Favor
of Large Eeal Estate Dealers.
Tli Tee List 1"-, Decidedly TJir-ntis-
fuetory to t lnOrnulHtrnt, Ileuc-
fiolal Kffect of the Act.
A private meeting or tne justices of the
peace of the District of Columbia was held
last night in the oificeof Justice Bundj to
consider the new rules and tecs of justice's
and constables prescribed by the. Supreme
Court in pursuance ot the recent act of Con
gress increasing the jurisdiction of justices
The rule that justices should charge
neither more nor leas than the ices laid
down met with unHersal approbation.
Heretofore there lias been some bad
blood among the justices owing to the im
pression that certain of them were bidding
for writs from large real estate firms at cut
rates. The new rule precludes any such
action in future and it is understood that
one of the parties said he had information
that sucli cut rate bids were offered, and
he announced that on the first case of the
kind here would apply to the supreme court
for a rule against the offending parties.
This proposition met with univer-al ap
probation. It is understood that in some respects the
fee list is decidedly unsatisfactory to the
justices, but theabobtion of cut rates by the
rule of the court will largelj offset this
objection This will be the fir't time the
justices of the peace have cer acted in
complete unison It was announced at the
meeting and so understood that certain
large real estate agents of the city propose
to hold a meeting to subvert the law re
quiring them to apply to landlord and
tenant writs. The justices are not uneasy
and they point to the fact that the present
sjstcm if all right, and that the fees are
revocable. It Is not thought by them that
this threat amounts to much.
The new set of rules and fee lists in
connection with the recent act of Congress
mean a thorough reform or methods of
procedure before justices of the peace. The
effect of the act will be to enable the poorer
classes of the community to secure substan
tial justice at reasonable costs.

WOMAN AS AN INVENTOR
Facts Disclosed in a Pamphlet
Issued by the Patent Office.
llor l"ir-t Indention YVns Recorded In
1800 .Vow Nearly 300 Letters
Are Grunted to I'ctnnlcs.
The Patent OfHce recently published a
pamphlet giving a list ot the patents issued
to women by thegoernment.
Tho office was established in 1 700, and
the first patent issued to a woman was in
ISO!), toMary Kies, fora method of wearing
straw with silk thread. Six jears later
ono was issued to Mary Brush for a corset.
It was not until 1S2S that more than one
patent perj ear wasissued to women.
In 1SG2 only fourteen patents were issued
to women, that being the largest in any
year up to that time The war, hmvever,
de eloped the inventive genius of women
and the annual number of patents ustied
to them increased rapidly. Many of them
were for inventions for either fighting or
The annual isMic increased steadily year
by year In 1S70, it was 60, in 1SS0
oer 92, In 1S90 over 200, and 1S9T over
300 Prom 1S09 to 1SSS women's imen
tions aiernged 30 a year, from 1SSS to
1S92, 230 a year and since 1S92, 230 a
Tlie pamphlet gives a classification of
women's invent ion This shows that wear
ing apparel leads the list with 160 dif
ferent patents in thirty months Then
come cooking utensils with 100 nnen
tionx, furniture with 55, heating, and
washing or cleaning apparatus with 10
odd each, sewing and spinning deuces and
building apparatus with about 30 each,
educational, medical apparatus, toys.and
trunks, about 20 each
Other lines in which women have tried
their invcutlc faculties are liaby carriages,
barrel and bicycle attachment", printing
like flowers, fade
and wither with time;
the bloom of the rose
is only known to the
cheeks. The nerv
ous strain caused by
the ailments aud
pains peculiar to the
sex, aud the labor
and worry of rearing
a family, can often
be traced by the lines in the woman's face.
Dull eyes, the sallow or wrinkled face and
those "feelings of weakness" have their
rise iu the derangements autl irregularities
peculiar to women. The functional tle
rangements, painful disorders, aud chronic
weaknesses of women, can be cured with
Dr. Pierce's Favorite Prescription. For the
young' girl jntt entering' womanhood, for
the mother aud those about to become
mothers", and later in "the change of life,"
the "Prescription " is just what they need ;
it aids nature in preparing the system for
the change. It's a medicine prescribed for
thirty year3, in the diseases of women, by
Dr. R. V. Pierce, chief consulting physician
to the Invalids' Hotel aud Surgical Insti
tute,at Buffalo. 3sf. Y. Dr. Pierce's Favorite
Prescription will cure the chronic inflamma
