AT THE TABERNACLE.
DR. TALMAGE DELIVERS A TRIBUTE
TO WOMANLY INFLUENCE.
The "reat Woman" of the Text Was 0nly
a Type of the Christian Mother of To
day-The Virtuen of 1IoMltality.
BROOKLYN, Aug. 20.-Rev. Dr.
Talmage chose for hin subject today Coo
of special interest to the outler sex, the
announced topia being "A Great Wo
man," and the text IlKts iv, 8:
"And it fell on a day that Elisha passed
to Shunem, where was a great woman."
The-hotel of our time had no counter
part in any entertaimentil ol olden Lime.
The vast majority of travelers must then
be entertained at private albode. IIere
comes Eliaha, a servant of the Lord, o
a divine mission, and lie must find siel
ter. A balcony overioldg tile valley
of Esdraelon is oflered h1tm, in a private
house, and It is esoCkcially 11urnished for
his occupancy-a chailr to sit on, -a table
from which L cat, a alitstick by
by which to reia and a le.t on whiih t
slumber, the whole Itablii!nnent be

AS GOOD AS GOLD.
Clearing Houss C)ertilloates Going the
Rounds in Atlanta.
ATLANTA, (LA., August 23.-The first
little flve-dollar certificate from the
Atlanta clearing house found its way
into the pockets of the trading public
today. It was passed over the marble
counter of one of the best banks of the
city, and stands for what it is worth,
whether it be used for debt paying or
cash trade. It is as good as the gold or
the silver. It Is real live money. Mon
ey with the bloom on it, and there will
will be no such thing as turning it
(own in Atlanta or elsewhere, for
everybody is glad to know that it has
found its way from the vaults of the
banks at last.
During the day a large amount of
the.e certificates wero paid out to dif
ferent persons. These certificates will
go the rounds now, that they are out.
'hey will go the wage-earner every
Saturday night when the work of the
week Is done. They will go to the
capitalists who needs more money than
the banks can comfortably let him
have for the payment of his greater ob
ligations. They will go to the black
man and the white, to the young man
an( the old, to the poor and the rich
alike. The history of how they came
to be issued is well known to the At
lanta public. It was not through any
fright. The banks of Atlanta have
stood the tempest of hard times far
better than the banks of any other city
in the land. They were making no
word of complaint.
But when the leading trade journals
of the North began to publish reports
that the banks of the South would not
be able to furnish enough ready c'isi to
move the cotton crop this fall and win
ter, then it was that the citizens of At
lanta identified with her growth and
her best interests got themselves to
gether in a mass meeting called by the
president of the chamber of comnerce,
and decided to call upon the banks of
the city, to issue their clearing house
certificates if it became necessary to
furnish the cash demanded to move the
cotton crop. The banks of Atlanta, al
ways ready and willing to do all that
the people and business men of the
city demand of them, at once took
steps to meet the call. They decided
riot to issue certificates such as the
mass meeting asked them to do, not
deeming it necessary just at that time
to put in general circulation a sort of
local currency. But they did decide te
issue such certificates as could be used
by themselves in the clearing house
in squaring their daily settlements.
These certificates were issued. At the
same time the bankers declared their
willingness to issue other certilicates
for general use whenever the demand
made it necessary. The merchants of
the city at once began a movement to
get the banks to take this step. The
long list of names the Constitution
published from day to day from the
best and most progressive business
men in the city asking the banks to
issue these general certificates and
pledging themselves to use them just
as readily as the cash money tended to
show the bankers that the people wan
ted them to issue the paper, and they
have met the peopla's demands.
When the banks first issued the reg
ular settlement clearing house certili
cates they did so to the amount of Sih,
(x)o. Most of the certificates were of' a
denomination ranging from S100 to
500 in value. They have within the
last day or two, however, issued small
er certificates, and it is these smaller
ones of from $5 to $20 In value t hat
are just beginning to find their way
out into the arteries of trade and comn

Atlanta'N Idle Clamsses.
A T LANT A. G A., Aug. 22.-The city
sounrcil met this afternoon and agreedl
to spend $5,000 on extra public works
f'or the benefit of the idle laborers
whose numbers are beginning to as
iume alarming proportions. T1his mon
3y Is not available by the city for the
purpose out of the regular channels,
but the demandls of the idle wvorkmen
have become so urgent thlat the mon~ey
Is provided by individuals, whlo are
hopeful that It will alleviate at least a
portion of the want now existing
among tile idle laborers of the city. It
is in the natuire of a charity dlistribul
tion. From 75 cents to $1 per (lay is
tihe amount to be paid the men for
their work. Many of them are skilled
workmen who usual.Uy earn from $3 to
$6 per (lay at their tradies. TIodav
crowds of idle workingmen who coI
lected on the street corners were so
large that the police were obliged to
Interfere. Almost every branch of in-~
dustry has redluced the number of
workmen employed, from the mer
chant's to the street car lines. The
street railway company today made a
cut in tile schedules in ordler to save a
few (dollars. Tile people are working
now to save thleir nickels. A dlanger
01us feature of the situation i the in
flux of strangers from othIer parts of
tile country. ThIey brinlg witi. them
idleas that may fead to more serious
troulble among the classes who are in
want than Saturday night's deCmonstra
tion, when several intemperate speechl
es were made by labor agitators. T1he
local papers are warning- the stragglers
to keep away from Atlanta. If they
continue to come they are likely to be
pult in the chaingang for vagrancy. As
a consequence of tile many idlle men,
footpads and housebreakers are over
running the city. The efforts of tihe
police to disperse tihe crowds on Mari
etta street today were unavailing,
though no trouble occurred . The men~
sim piy h ad nowhere else to go and I f
forced to move on one minulte would
come right back the next, to contInue
the discussion of tile gloomy prospects.
Th'le clearing hlouse certificates went
into cIrculation among tile b)anks to
day. They will be put Into use by the
public in a few days, the merchlants
having generally agreed to preserve
the local currency at par.

THE HOUSE COMMIT'IEE.
They Give General Satisfaction to Nearly
WAsHINTON, Aug. 22.-The com.
nittees as anibournced by Speaker Crisp
in the [louse lesterday mornitig give
general satisfaction to the memnbers.
T here are not more than half a dozen
dissatisfled ones. Of course Mr.,Sprin.
ger is disappointed because lie was not
again placed at the head of the com
inittee on ways and means, but his ap.
pointment to the chairmanship of
banking and currency was well re
ceived by the loutise, and Air. Springer
will probably clo good work in his new
assignment. flis financial views agree
with those of the adininistration, and
Air. Cleveland and Mr. Carlisle are
The apoinitment o1 Air. Wilson, of
West Virgiiia, as chairman of the
committee on ways and means 'was
probably made at the request of Mr.
Cleveland. Tie President is an ad
mirer of Air. Wilson's ability and be.
lieves him to bo the best posted man
in tlie House on the tariif qoie0tion.
lis views are in the thorough accord
with those of Mr. Cleveland and the
tariff bill, reported by the cominittee
under Air. Wilson, will be just what
the administration wants. The only
change made in the wa3s and neans
committee is the removal of Mr. Sprig.
ner. Mr. lynumi, o1 (ndiatna, succeeds
Mr. Shively, who is not a mieimber of
this Congress. Mr. lireckenridge, of
Arkansas, who was removed from this
-oimnittee two years ago, is reinstated
andl Alr. Tarspey, of Nissouri, is aded.
Every meiber of the louse, except
Mr. llohuan, is thoroughly delighted
with the appointment of Mr. Sayers, of
Texas, as chairnian of the coinimittee
on appropriations. Jtudge lolman's
peculiar ideas of economy managed to
retard, rather than advance, business
in the last House, anId it is necess-Arv,
on account of his age, to place a young
er man at the head of this coinmittee.
In(leed, Ar. It-)nan's ideas of econo
my have not been at all satisfactory
to the Deinocratic leaclers. lie woult
light for holirs over an appropriation
of a few dollars, whereas it it happened
to be in the millions it would go
through without his opposition.
Mr. [lolman has been imade chairmilan
of the cominittee on Indlian affairs,
which meaus that the poor Indian is
to be given no showing whatever by
this Congress. If "poor Lo" ii fortu
nate enough to get eveni a half slipply
of blankets he will be in luck. The
chances are that he will got none, but
have to clothe himself in the leaves of
the torest. Naturally, tie array ollicers
are delighted at the anpointuient ot
Mr. 1Iolilan to the head~of thii con
mittee. For they hold that if the In
(ian lwill not go to war over this econ
omist being platced in charge of his ra
tions and blankets lie will never light
again. .Mit they believe he will light
and this will give tl:em opportunity to
see more active service in the field.
Already thece is talk about th capital
of the Indians preparing for a gitost
dance and the army ollicers are cele
brating the prospect of war at the
Army and Navy Club here tonight.
AIr. lilands succeeds himself as chair
man of thie coi-mIIittee on c)inage,
weilits andi mieasures and that coi
mittee is organized just as it was in
thie last Congress. 1i. hru a in.jority

the fact that lie has made this coimmit
