It heartily endoises the administra
tion of President Harrison and Post
maeter-General Wanamaker, and ap
proves the course of the Republicans in
tbe last congress, especially in the pass
age of the McKinley bill. In regard to
Blame, the resolutions declare:
"It has been with especial gratifica
tion that the Republicans of this com
monwealth observe the brilliant admin
istration of the state department by
one of Pennsylvania's native sons,
whose superb diplomacy has elec
trified the hearts of all Ameri
cans; exacted from foreign people
a degree of respect and admiration for
the United States flag hitherto un
equalled, and opened wide to tbe United
States, in other lands, commercial gates
heretofore barred. These magnificent
achievements justify the confidence, and
furnish a new occasion for us to reaffirm
the loyalty and devotion of the Repub
licans of Pennsylvania to her most dis
tinguished son, Hon. James G. Blame."
Bimetal is in is favored, and the action
of the last congress in providing for the
purchase and coinage of all the silver
t reduced from American mineß is en
orsed, and such tariff duties are rec
ommended "as will protect the country
and its currency from the debasement
which will surely follow if tbe nation be
made the dumping ground for all the
silver in the world."
Devotion to the welfare of the Union
soldier is reaffirmed.

Washington, August 19.—Statistician
Dodd, of the department of agriculture,
says: The year promises to be one of
abundance in almost all lines of agri
cultural production. Preliminary re
turns of the acreage made the wheat
area about 40,000,000 acres. On that
basis the crop should not fall below
525,000,000 bushels. Oatß are the least
promising of any of the cereals. The
acreage in rye is little changed, but the
August condition is better, promising a
large crop. The barley acreage is ap
parently the largest ever sown, and the
present condition warrants that the crop
will be considerably above the average.
Bismarck, N. D.,"August 19. —The as
sessors' return to the state commissioner
of agriculture and labor from thirty
counties, being all except Barnes, Eddy,
Foster, Lamoure, Ramsey, Richland,
Stark and Ward, give the following acre
age in crops: Wheat, 2,628,275; corn,
30,220; oatß, 360,629: rye, 7,118; barley,
120,691; flax, 89,073; potatoes, 14,442;
millet and Hungarian grass, 87,613;
other tame grasses, 15,757.
Estimates of the figures from the
other counties give a total acreage of
wheat of 2,920,000, an increase of 400,
--000 acres over last year. Estimating
seventeen bushels to the acre, over the
entire state, would give North Dakota
51,000,000 bushels of wheat. It will re

San Francisco, August 19.— The
steamer George AY. Elder, which left
here last month with a cargo of 1400
tons of wheat for Peru, armed this
morning, fifteen days from Callao.
Captain Lewis states that everything
was quiet at the latter port, but there

The arrival of the steamer at Callao
July 31st, with her cargo of wheat, was
the signal for much rejoicing among the
inhabitants, as no wheat had arrived
there for twenty-five days. American
gold was in great demand, twenty-nine
and a half Peruvian dollars being paid
for United States twen;y-dollar gold
pieces. Saddles were also in demand
for sale to Balmaceda's forces.
Lima papers, representing the views
of the majority cf the Peruvians,

Associated Press Dispatches.
Bennington, Vt., August 19.—Ben
nington'B great day dawned clear and
beautiful. The surrounding country for
miles emptied its entire population into
the town. The decorations were elab
orate and beautiful. A mounted Grand
Army post escorted President Harrison
from General McCullough's house to the
Soldiers' home, where Governor Page
and all the living ex-governors of the
state greeted him. He then resumed
his place in his carriage which, with
other vehicles, took its place in line. At
10 o'clock the procession moved, with
the Putnam phalanx, of Hartford, Ct.,
as escort to the president, in the van,
with a score of carriages following, con
taining distinguished guests. The pro
cession was viewed by thousands of peo
ple, the president receiving great ap
plause. The president left the line at
the reviewing stand, and the column
passed before him. When the
procession reached the monument the
different commands grouped about it.
Meantime the president and party, the
orator of the day, Hon. Edward J.
Phelps, Governor Page and the other
distinguished speakers and guests, took
the president's platform at the base of

progress and commemoration.
Governor Page, in behalf of his state,
made a brief but eloquent speech, ac
cepting the monument. Music fol
Then Hon. Edward J. Phelps, the
orator of the day, was introduced. He
was received with a roar of applause.
In his oration he said substantially:
"Vermont concentrates today herfirst
historic monument, but not her's alone.
New Hampshire and Massachusetts, who
fought with her and for her in Benning
ton, have joined in erecting this memo
rial to their common history, and they
are here represented by a splendid dele
gation to share in the triumph of its
completion, and to give to the occasion
by the distinction of their presence
higher dignity and more generous grace.
"The day has a still larger significa
tion. It is trebly fortunate; it marks
not only the anniversary of the battle
and the happy consummation, in this
structure, of the exertions of fifteen
years, but likewise the centennial of
the entrance of Vermont into the fed
"It is appropriate and gratifying that
the chief magistrate of the nation should
be our most honored guest. In this
scene party differences are forgotten;
we are only Americans, and in loyalty to
that great office, and respect for the in
cumbent who fills it so well, we this day
are on the president's side."
The speaker then followed with a
lengthy and eloquent resume of the
events leading up to the battle of Ben
nington. The oration was received in a
most appreciative manner.
President Veazey introduced Presi
dent Harrison, who arose amid cheers
and shouts of "What's the matter with
Harrison?" "He's all right!"
The president said in substance:
"Mb. Pbesldent and Fellow Citizens :
There are obvious reasons why I should
not attempt to speak to you. This great
audience is so uncomfortably situated
that further prolongation of the exer
cises must be inconvenient to them. A
stronger reason is, you have just listened
to a scholarly review of those incidents
which have led to this assemblage, and
to those lessonß which they must sug
gest to every thoughtful and patriotic
man. A son of Vermont, honored by
his state, by tbe nation, by the pro
fession to which he can do honor, hon
ored by all his fellow citizens, has
spoken fir Vermont, and it doesn'tseem
fit that these golden sentences into
which he has gathered the thoughts of
preparation, should be marred by any
thing I might add. I have no further
preparation for a speech today than
this cordial welcome you have extended
me, which makes it unfitting that I
Bhould neglect my most grateful ac
knowledgment of it. Perhaps I may be
permitted, as a citizen of a western state,
to give tribute to Vermont. Perhaps as
a public officer I can bring to you the
tribute of their appreciation of the his
tory of this state."
In the course of his speech he said :
"We are today approaching the conclu
sion of a summer of extraordinary fruit
fullness. How significant the" Btores

with plenty today. We ought to be a

The European deficiencies offer a ready
market for all our cereals, and we shall
grow richer as they take food from our
storehouses. But after all, it is not
wealth that tells the greatness of this
country. Vermont has not been one of
the rich states in gold or silver, but she
has been wrought out of the strife of
competition, and has the sturdy man
hood on which the security of our coun
With respect to Vermont's partici
pating in the revolutionary struggle,
the president said: "They had grave
reasons to fear that the government to
whose supremacy Vermont had so nobly
contributed might recognize the claims
oi New York, and yet through all this
struggle Vermont took a glorious part
in securing independence, which was
the ultimate security of the homes of
her people. It is a glorious and un
matched history. She bas kept faith
unflinchingly from Bennington to this
day. She has added illustrious names
to our roll of warriors and statesmen.
Her representation in congress, as
I have known it, has become
conspicuous for influence, and as far as
lean recall, has been without reproach
to any man. We have occasionally come
to Vermont with a call that did not
originate with her own people, and
those calls have always been answered
with the same conservation to duty as
your own. I found when the difficult
task of making a cabinet was before me,
I could not get along without a Ver
mont stick in it [laughterand applause],
and I am sure you have plenty of timber
left in each of the great political parties.

The government recognizes that the
old tactics of playing the poweiß against
eich other is futile, and is aghast at
their unanimity. The emperor is anx
ious to avoid war. He dreads attempt
ing to coerce the provinces, doubting
the loyalty of the high officials. The
Chinese openly favor a pure Chinaman
for emperor, and advocate expelling
the Tartar dynasty. The attitude of
many viceroys is suspicious. Li Hung
Chang is sitting still, keeping away from
the scene of the troubles. The cost of
keeping twenty foreign war ships in the

The central government's usual tac

employed around the market swore that
there was no stench that would be of

Dr. BIIU to Feel Gleeful—The
Wh«l« Case Referred to the
Synod for Action.
The presbytery had an exciting time
of it yesterday. Threats were made and
hard names called with an alarming
disregard for consequences; all sorts of
motions were put and lost, and at last,
by an unlooked-for turn, the entire diffi
culty was shifted to an ecclesiastical
court of higher authority. At times
the scene was one of complete confu
sion. Angry voices came from all parts
of the room; dignified, benevolent
looking ministers, severe of aspect if
not of demeanor, were on their feet
clamoring, several at a time, for recog
nition. The moderator, red in the face,
pounded loudly and ineffectually with his
cane for order, and, adding to the
hubbub, an irreverent audience ap
plauded and stamped with singular dis
regard for the place aud circumstances.
All the while Eev. J. W. Ellis, D. D.,
smiling and silent, rocked himself back
and forth in his chair in evident enjoy
ment of the situatio*. He was the
cause of it all and made little attempt
to disguise his glee at tbe exhibition
made by his brethren.
The session was opened by the judi
cial committee, which recommended
that Dr. Ellis be tried on charges of un
christian conduct and conduct unbe
coming a minister in having sworn in a
complaint in the superior court that the
presbytery had formed a conspiracy and
made false, malicious, wicked and vil
lainous charges against him.
Dr. Mackenzie began bis active parti
cipation in the session by succeeding in
having the charge of unchristian con
duct dropped from his report. He fol
lowed it up with a motion that Btartled
every one in the room. He moved that
the remaining charge against D. Ellis be
dismissed. . . .
Dr. Mackenzie gave his reasons. "Our
brother has attributed to us improper
motives," he said. "Have so many of
us escaped wounds in that direction?
Dr. Ellis made his charge not in truth
nor in justice, but we should not forget
that in haste one may call all men liars.
Dr. Ellis had provocation, not in us,
but in himself. In our charges there is
nothing wrong or untimely, but our peo
ple have something to say in the mat
ter. They are interested; "they want us
to drop it, to wash our hands of it and
leave it in the courts, where it now
rests. I have read little of kindness to
Dr. Ellis in the presbytery. Is he un
known to you? Is his long and honor
able record in the church, his glorous
service in Los Angeles to be forgotten ?"
Rev. Fraser added his words of appeal
in behalf of the deposed pastor.
"You have good cause to plead for
Dr. Ellis," retorted F.ev. Dr. Kerr,
pointing to Drs.Mackenzie and Fraser.
"You brought him here against the
judgment of the Home Mission society.
Mr. Moderator, you allow them to
speak of bis honorable record ; will you
allow me to tell you of his dishonorable
career in Los Angeles? Neither of these
men were present in the presbytery
when he was tried, for," he continued
emphatically, "they both dodged the
Dr. Macknzie was on his feet in an
instant. Shaking his ringer threaten
ingly at the speaker, he shouted in an
ger: "Mr. Kerr will take that back
here and now, and if anything like it is
repeated Dr. Fraser and I will leave this
room without the formality of permis
The moderator was drifting into an
alarming condition. He bad appeals
from every part of the house, and con
fessed that he was fast becoming as
greatly muddled as the rest, when El
der Roberts came to his assistance.
"Dr. Ellis," he said, "had sworn to
what he knows is not true. I won't say
what I think of such an act, but if I did
I would call it perjury before high
Elder Roberts had barely uttered the
words before Dr. Ellis jumped to his
feet, rushed excitedly up to the perspir
ing moderator and demanded protec
tion. The moderator mildly declared
Elder Roberts out of order, and the lat
ter made the modified assertion: "If
Dr. Ellis does not know he swore to an
untruth the presbytery does."
"Am I to have protection ?"yelleu the
After another hour of wrangling Dr.
Ellis came to the assistance of his breth
ren. He sympathized with them in
their difficulty, he said, and had a solu
tion, which was to lay f,he whole matter
on the table, to postpone it indefinitely
and seek advice from the synod. Light
seemed to dawn on the assembly, partic
ularly as Dr. Ellis gave the welcome con
solation that the synod had no power to
try him on the charges.
Dr. Wood worth begged his brethren
not to refer the matter to the synod,
which expected to have a spiritual time
at its next assembly.
Still Dr. Ellis's advice was accepted in
most particulars, and the presbytery re
ferred the whole matter to the synod of
the Pacific for trial. It went still fur
ther and removed its decree of suspen
sion resting upon Dr. Ellis, and, pend
ing tbe result of the case, restored him
to all his rights as a minister.
As the rase now stands all proceedings
are at an end until October, when the
synod of the Pacific will meet in San
Rafael. There is strong doubt that it
has any power to try the case, a position
which Dr. Sheerer maintained at the
close of the session yesterday. He
summed the decision of the presbytery
as follows: "We have restored Dr.
Ellis," said he, "to full rights. He is
now no different man from what he was
when we placed him under the ban. He
has not repented, but we have decided
that it is to the edification of the Pres
byterian church that he has done what
