"WASnc-CTON", Oct 7. "If there is any-

:rats," said a Cabinet official who will
ipend most of the next four weeks on the
tump, to the correspondent of The Dis-
A.TCIT, to-day, "it is about time for him to
evise his opinion, in view of the Southern
litres elections. "While there isio doubt
hat enormous frauds were committed in

SEEKING FOR A SITE.
The Free Bridge Committee Slakes a Tour
of Inspection Talk About Buylnc the
Old Tenth Street Bridge The Twenty
Second Street legation.
Several members of the Committee on
Free Bridges accompanied Chief Bigelow
yesterday on a 'rip along the south bank of
the Monongahela river to inspect the sites
available for free bridges. They made their
first stop at the foot of Sooth Fifth street,
then at South Eighth, Tenth, Twenty-second
and Twenty.fifth streets. Not much
time was given up to the inspection. After
the members returned they had little to
say. Messrs. Anderson and Ford were
favorable to the South Twenty-second street
location, and Fox and Bigbam were favor
able either to the Fifth or Eighth street
sites, .Robertson favored Eighth street and
the balance of the committee were favor
able to the purchase of the Teuth street
bridge -t a reasonable figure.
Alter discussing the merits of the various
sites a few moments, the committee ad
journed with the understanding that Chief
Bigelow will have prepared plans showing
the necessary approaches to a bridge at
each of the "locations visited, and submit
them to the next meeting of the committee.
In the meantime a sub-committee to which
has been given the task ot ascertaining
what the cost to the city would be of exist
ing bridges, will cet ready to report.
buving the Tenth street bridge, or of buildJ
ing a new one at South Twenty-second
street. "The Tenth street bridge," he
says, "is practically falling down, ifo re
pairs worth mentioning have been made on
it for a long time, and we should be able to
buy it at a low figure. The location is a
good one at the present time, being con
venient to a large section of that part of the
citv. But the Twenty-second street site
will prove the best in the long run. While
it may not be as satisfactory to South
siders just now, it will only be a
few years until it will be
far more convenient for them than any
other. By it they could get to almost any
place on this side, east or west, iu the
quickest time and by the most pleasant
route. I am not in Javor of a bridge below
Tenth street'at this time. One further up
will be of greater benefit to the people on
both sides of the river for the present than
even the Smithfield street bridge. Of course
it would not be best for those living down
in that locality, but unless we get all the
bridges at once we can't please all at once,
and there will be objections. If the Bridge
Committee accepts my advice they will go
up the river for their first bridge. As the
city is thereafter able the other sites can be
occupied until she owns them all."

He Wants No Change In Policy.
"My definite, absolute and final position
is this: That young men who nre not cer

who are willing to leave it to God, and who

distiuctly right now whether the board re
affirms the rule ot policy set down.in jxew
York and Minneapolis, or whether the board
wishes to modify or change that policy.
"As for church representation in the
board, my position Is that the ohurch is the
unit of Congregationalism, and I am not

Prof. Smvth, of Andover, the leader of
the Congregational Liberal movement, im

declared that the rules had not been inter
preted liberally, and that it is impossible
lor a liberal influence in the Prudential
Committee to exist.
"The thing for which we stand," said he,
"is that these liberal men who are fitted to
be pastors of the churches shall not be ex

of the board are not liberally interpreted.
You are shutting out consecrated men by

DOCTORING A HYMNAL.'
The Episcopal Convention Continues TTork
on the Prayer Book, and Also Takes Up
Church Music A Missionary Looks for
Heathen and Finds Christians.
BALTIMORE, Oct, 7. At the third session
of the triennial convention of the Protestant
Episcopal Church this morning message 4,
Horn the House of Bishops, was being read
when John Williams, of Omaha, objected
to the reading as it prejudiced the House
against the articles refused to be accepted
by the bishops. The President, however,
overruled the objection. The Bishops' re
port to the House of Deputies contained the
number of the resolutions they had adopted
or rejected. Numbers from 21 to 52 were
adoptcu; 30, 31, 31 and 46 rejected.
Dr. Nelson, of New York, made a long
address on the alteration of the hymual,
and asked the President to make the
hymnal revision the order of the day Fri
day, October 14. Bev. P. J. Eoberts, of St
Louis, moved a resolution that the present
hymnal be retained intact He was tired of
listening to the debates for and against the
hymns that were to be chosen. , Bev. Mr.
McViekar, of Pennsylvania, moved that a
copy of the hymns rejected and the new
ones proposed be printed and distributed
among the deputies for consideration. Car
The Bishops then sit in joint session on
the missionary question. Several mis
sionary addresses were read. The first was
from Bishop Nichols, describing a mission

went there he expected to find nothing but
persons steeped in vice and sin, but was
glad to find that the voung men. of the "West
had not forgotten tneir uoo.
Missionary addresses were resumed by
Bishop Garrett, requesting young men to

-and Kerr attended him. The ball was
probed for and found to be located m the

Though the patient was bleeding profusely,
the ball was removed. The physicians had
much trouble, in stopping the flow of blood,
as the ball had entered below the ear just
grazing the Jugular vein, and piercing some
of the smaller blood vessels.
When the accident happened Mr. Staple
was standing on the street talking to a
friend. Frank Bubincon with a companion
were shooting at a mark with a flobert rifle
a short distance away. One ot the balls
glanced, taking efiect in Staple's neck.

the accident, ran down to Carson street, and
was afterward arrested in Carter's saloon by
Officer Brannan. He will.be given a hear

Spurrier; Deputy Collectors J. E. Pulver
and S. D. Mather and Mr. Harris, son of
the United States Commissioner at Flint
ville, started out to seize 20 barrels of
illicit brandy which had already been
located at a point about ten miles from
Flintville. "When the party had proceeded
about four miles from Flintville they were
fired on from the bushes in the rear.
Mather fell dead at the first shot, having
received 12 buckshot in his head. One
lodged behind the ear. Before the sur
prised party could defend themselves Card
well and Spurrier fell, mortally wounded.
Cardwell received ten buckshot in the
back and Spurrier received a rifle bullet in
the back between the shoulder blades.
Bobinson turned and shot twice at two
of the four fleeing moonshiners, and one of
them named Patrick, the leader, fell dead.
The other three made good their escape into
the bushes. Cardwell died at 3 o'clock in a
wagon at the depot, as he was being taken
home. Mather, Cardwell and Spurrier were
ivell known and highly respected all oyer
tne btate, and have been in the revenue
service lor years.
A telegram from Danville, Ky., says:
Creed 8. Cardwell, who was killed in a fight
with moonshiners to-dav' at Flintville,
Tenn., was known throughout Central Ken
tucky as a prompt and courageous officer
and a man who feared no man. The an
nouncement of his death created consider
able excitement here and in Harrodsburg,
where he has lived for years, and where his
two brothers, Judge T. M. Cardwell and ex
Mayor W. K. Cardwell, and brother-in-law,
Hon. John B. Thompson, and two sisters
now reside. His two brothers have left for
Nashville, where his remains will arrive to
night Creed Cardwell has been in the
revenue service lor 20 years, and at the time
of the fighting was Deputy Collector for
Georgia, Tennessee and North Carolina.
He leaves a wife and two children. He was
about 45 years of age. His remains will be
brought to Harrodsburg tor interment, the
services being held Sunday. His wite is
now in Nashville.

FEELINGS BUSING A FALL.
A Savant In Switzerland Claims They Are
Prof. Helm, of Zurich, supplies the scien
tific press with an article upon falls. Ac
cording to him, the man who falls from a
tremendous height has the most enjoyable
time imaginable till he stops. If he could
fall forever it would be better than Para
dise. He suffers no pain, he is not frozen
with terror, as is commonly supposed,
yet he is perfectly aware of what is hap
pening. , t
Time seems to pass very sldwlyaVho goes
down, and he thinks of many subjects.
There are pleasant sounds in his ears prob
ably caused by the whizzing of the air as he
goes by. He knows perfectly well that
there will presently be a tremendous thud
and a violent pause, but he regards the pros
pect with absolute composure, and rather
looks at it from an outside standpoint, as if
it were some one else who was going to come
down with that thud, and that he uas going
to stand by and see the fun.
When the stoppage does come he knows
nothing about it. It is a beautiful death
to die by rushing down from a great height.
The patient seems to be a comet, or a me
ter, flying athwart the blue sky, and then
he sinks into oblivion, as if he had fallen
into a Bea of chloroform and roses, and if
the fall is long enough he never knows
anything more, and nothing worries him
again to all eternity.
Got His Coat After Seventeen Years.
In 1876 Senator Perazzi of the Itilian
Parliament, while coming down doirn au
Alpine glacier at the height of 4,000 feet,
dropped his coat in a crevase, Tne guides,
knowing the annual rate of glacial move
ment, told him that it would probably com
out from the glacier's mouth iu about 17
years. Last August some tourists saw a
coat in the moraine, and on examination, it
turned out to be the Senator's.

How Eskimo Women Have Fun.
The Eskimo women have two very curi
ous ways of diverting themselves. One is
by throwing various sorts of loops with a
string after the manner ot the cat's cradle
of English children. The other is by mak
ing faces. When the men are away hunt
ing seals the women not infrequently gather
in one hut, where all but one. work at sew
ing, while the one sits in the middle ot the
floor and screws her facS into every sort of
grotesque shape possible.

Exciting Experiences of Com
mander David Noyes-
One of the Most Popular G. A. R
Veterans in the Country.
A Wonderful Thin? and We Believe It to'
He escaped being killed In battle.
Hut he came dangerously near death once.
This In brief is the experience of Past
Commander David Noyes, .of Manchester,
That Mr. Noyes is a most popular and hon
ored citizen Is evident from the fact that he
has been elected five different years Com
mander of Reno Post, No. 84, G. A. R., that
he Is a Free Mason of high decree, a Justice
of the Peace, Bullng Elder and Treasurer ot
the Presbyterian Church, a member of the
Board of Education and has tfeen eentaa
delegate to County, State and Congressional
Conventions. The word of a man so highly
honored at home must carry the greatest
conviction and weight throughout the ooua
try. Els story Is interesting.
"For over 27 years since the close of the
late war I suffered from dyspepsia, paid out
hundreds of dollars, bnt got no relief.
"I suffered from heart disease for 6 years,
was carried out of church and from my
work, three times, and for the pass two
years was unable to do any work whatever.
HOW. DAVID VOTES,
"I was told by my physician that I never
could get well.
"I was also paralyzed on the right side
from the hip down, ana suffered severely
with lumbaio and a trembling of the hands.
"I took Dr. Greene's Nervura blood and
nerve remedy, and feel perfectly cured of all
these troubles, and feel like a well man.
I could not sleep on my right side for
years, now I can sleep well and eat any
thin?. "It has proved to bea wonderful remedy
for me, and I am a living witness to testify
to the truth of my statement. It Is the
grandest medicine ever made, and all my
friends are amazed at the cure."
Postmaster Edward F. Larrabee and Win.
Montgomery, master. mochanlc New Jersey
Southern It. H., both of Manchester, N. J.,
have known Mr. Noyes for 25 years, and are
familiar with all the facts about his wonder
We can only say in commenting on this
case, that it is truly marvellous what this
remarkable remedy will do in curing dis
ease. It oenainly makes most astounding
cures, and we do not wonder that, as drag'
gists tell us, the demand for it among the
sick Is enormous. Its price is only$l, and it
is purely vegetable and harmless. Another
thing which gives the people the greatest
confidence In It is that it is prepared Dy Dr.
Greene, of 35 W. 14th Street, New York,
who is an eminent specialist fa. nervous
.and chronic diseases. He can be consulted
