-LEWIS THE LIGHT."
Dr. Talmage's Congregation Disturbed by
a Ueligious Crank.
New York, Oct. 2. Lewis Green Slade
who has made himself prominent in
Brooklyn by his queer actions and who
has seeral times been charged with dis
turbin ? the meetings of the Salvation
Army, visited the Brooklyn Tabneracle at
the morning services Sunday. He is
known as "Lewis the Light." and is a
crank on religious matters. He claims
that his desiie is to kill King Death and
shinoastheApobtleof Light, hence he lias
taken the name of "Lewis the Light."
"Lewis, the Light" managed to get into
the buildimr, and occupied a seat in the
gallery on the right side of the church and
quite near the platform. He behaved him
self until Dr. T.ilmage gave out. the hymn,
just before the sermon was to be preached.
This was the time for the crank to do his
work, and while every one was seated he
arose and took off hisovercoat, displaying
alight suit of clothes, similar to the uni
form worn by the Brooklyn baseball club.
On the front ot the white shirt ho wore a
red flannel liver pad, cut into the shape of
a heart. Dr. Talmage saw the man but
did not appear to notice him, as he did not
vaut to disturb the congregation. He
gave Mr. John Wood, the treasurer of
the church, the cue and Mr. Wood went
into the gallery and quietly asked "Lewis
the Light" to put on nis overcoat so as not
to cieate any disturbance. The crank re
fused to put on his coal, claiming that if
he did it would hide from sight his large
Mr. Wood then noticed snecial Police
man Dubey, who is engaged to protect the
congregation from annoyance.
'lhe .special policemau told "Lewis the
Lisht"toputon hi coat and get out. When
the man refused the policeman said he
would place him under a Test Thuas
sufficient and "Lewis, the Light" said he
would get out without making a noise if
the policeman would not arrest him. This
was promised and as Dr Talmage com
menced his sermon on the "Lord's
Chariot," the crank made his exit from
the building. On his way down the aisle
ho distributed small cards on which were
priuted his ideas of Christianity.
A FEAR WITHOUT A FOUNDATON.3
Little Rock, Ark., Oct. 2. The absorp
tion of the Cotton Belt by the Gould syn
dicate is tile all-important topic of con
versation here now in business and rail
road circles. This movement meets with
the disfavor of the merchants and manu
facturers, as it remores a strong competi

one railroad not controlled by Gould

A ROMANCE FROM TEXAS.
Bos ham, Tex., Oct. 2. In the vicinity of
the little inland town of Providence, in the
southern part of the county, there comes
information of quite a little romance. It
seems that one Will McCulley, a highly
respecttd, but poor young man of the
neighborhood, was paying his respects to
Miss Arie Crain, the belle of Providence.
Young McCulley was objectionable to the
parents of Miss Crain, who looked, with
favor upon the suit of a prominent younir
M. D. She was not allowed to see
McCulley and the wedding between
her and the doctor was to
have been consumated last Wednesday,
regardless of the prefereuce. But young
McCulley was not to be beaten so easily
out of winning the capital drize. Conse
quently, with te assistance of friends, he
arranged for an elopement to the Indian
Territory on Tuesday night. After the
mutual friends had made all the necessary
arrangements for giving the old folks the
slip McCulley came along with a buggy
shortly after dusk, and the twain made all
possible speed for the land of the redskin,
and about the time the fond parents ex
pected Miss Artie to wed the man of their
choice she spoke the works that bound her
to the man she loved.
Louisville, Oct. 2. C. E. Turner, jr.,
assigned today. He did an extensive busi
ness in connection with D. A. Murphy &
Co., of Chicago. The failure was due to
complications of that firm's business, re
sulting from a wheat deal.
Chicago, Oct. 2. The Traders' bank of
this city has failed. On application of
Thomas Tullman, Judge btiepard this
morning appointed Hugh McChesney re
ceiver of the assets of the bank. It is un
derstood that the failure results from the
illness of the bank's president. Liabilities,
HELEXA, Ark., Oct. 2. Quito a flurry
was created here tonight by the United
States marshal walking into the cry goods
establishment of Messrs. S. Hir-ch & Co.
and taking possession of the stock under a
writ of attachment sworn out by A. M.
Hirsch, ot Kansas City. The amount
claimed to be due the attaching creditor is
J20.GG0. The amount of asaets and liabili
ties are not knowm. The firm of S. Hirsch
& Co. has been do.ng business here for a
little over a year, having moied here from
SPP.ISGFIhLD. 111., Oct, 2. Bishop Will
iam Taylor, a distinguished African bishop
of the Methodist church, expressed his
views on the disappearance of Henry M
Stanley, the African explorer. He said
that, from his knowledge of the condition
of thing; in Africa, it was highly probable
that Stanley had gone into the interior of
the country where he could not bj heard
from for a'year or two, that interested
persons were taking advantage of his ab
sence to create friendship for individual
schemes to organize smirching parties
whose real object was something else than
the recovery or assistance of Stanley.
Desire for" public sensation pernap,
prompted othrr publications respecting
the explorer. For hia own part the bishop
did not believe there would be any special
cause for alarm if he is not heard from for
a year or two yet.

New York, Oct. 2. tho following is
Levy P. Morton's letter accepting the
nomination for vice president:
New Yoke, Oct. 2, 1SSS.
To tho Hon. M. M. Estee and others. Commltteo:
Gentlemen In making formal accep
tance of my nomination as the Republican
candidate for the vice presidency, I desire
to express my grateful appreciation of the
confidence reposed in me by the conven
tion. The duties developing upon the vice
president as presiding officer of the senate
and in certain contingencies a participant
in the legislation of congress, makes it
proper than the people should know de
stinctly and unequestic-nably the political
views of the candidato who niay be pro
cented for their suffrage. It fortunate
ly happens that this duty for
myself is easily discharged
by referring to the principles embodied in
the resolutions unanimously adopted by
the national convention. These resolu
tions, unequivocal and comprehensive in
character, reflect my personal convictions
and have my hearty approval. It is diffi
cult, however, in this campaign to fix pop
ular attention on more thau one issue
in the coming election. Every voter
in the United States clearly sees that
the controlling question is whether
the protective tariff duties now in force
shall be so reduced as to destroy their effi
cacy or whether these duties shall be
retained with such modifications and ad
justments as shall better adapt them to
the great end of protection to the vast and
important industries of the country. The
necessity of reducing the revenue, declares
that the reduction must not be made at
the expenses of the industries ot American
labor. Tho American people have now
enjoyed the protective system for a longer
continuous period than ever before in the
histoiy of the national government. The
result is that for more than a century they
have realized a degree of industrial and
financial prosperity unprecedented in this'
country and never equaled in any other.
The pressing reason given for once anain
trying the old experiment of a revenue
tariil without protection is that the pres
ent tarill has produced and is producing a
surplus in the treasury, but it is not clearly
witnin the wiidom of congress to adjust
the national income to thu na-'
tioual expenditure without sacrificing or
eyen imperilling an imiusLriiu sysium,
which has brought untold advantages to
the entire country. Admitting that the
present tariff by 1 ipse of time and the
large expausion ot trade which it has
stimulated needs ievision, is it not wise
and more patriotic to revise it with a care
ful regard to the interests of protection,
than with the purpose of lessening its
protective feattue These are some of the
questions which must be auswered at the
national polls in November. For myself
as a citizen and as a candidato I do not
hesitate to declare that from long ex
perience Iam an unswerving friend of the
protective system. In a business life now
extending over forty years I have witness
ed and compared the effects on the country
of a revenue tariff tending to free tnde
with a protective tariff encouraging home
industries. Under the former the de
velopment of the country has always been
arrested, while under the latter it has uni
formly been promoted.
To the men who earn their bread by the
sweat of their brows the difference jbe
tween the two systems is that of narrow
ing chances on the one hand and extend
ing opportunities on the other. Freft
trade would ouen America to competition
with the whole world; protection reserves
it for Americans, native and adopted. The
industrial system of a country is as sensa
tive as a public credit; a hotile movement
creates a distrust in the public mind and
confidence, the only basis of successful
trade, becomes mi pared, new enterprises
wither, the busiest capitalist grows timid,
the food of labor is contracted arc! press
ure for employment abridges the wages of
all workingmen. With the views of the
convention frankly expressed in its resolu
tions upon all other questions of public
interest I find my.-elf in hearty accord.
In relation to silver and its important
bearing upon the nation's currency, as
well as its connection with and influence
on the procpenty of large sections of our
common cot ntry; it's achoca. yof a judi
cious ettlenitnt of the public lauds policy.
In arcumg the necessity for better coast
defense and the duty we owe to
jthe shipping interests of the country the
platform but repeats the approved princi
ple of the Republican party. The Repub
lican platform proposes a distinctly
American policv, not one of narrnwnfss
and bigotry, but one broad and philan
thropic, a policy that best helps the
whole wond by the example of
a great, growing, powerful nation
founded on the cqnality of every man
before the law. ft is for the American
people to develope and cultivate the con
tment to whicb.'in the providence of God,
they have fallen heirs. They should adopt
a policy which looks steadily to this great
end with no spirit of narrowness toward
other peoples, but rather in the highest in
terest of alL They should find under
their own flag a fiela of limitle advance
ment m the:irection of the improvement,
the prosperity and happiness of man.
Very "respectfully, yours.
Levi P. MonTON.
Minnesoiauns and Fnlton Coantr Farm
ers Call on the General.
ISDIAKAPOIIS, Oct. 2. General Harrison
this morning entered on his fourteenth
week of public receptions and speeches.
The first delegation of the week arrived
about S o'clock. It was a small baud of
thirty-five Republican from the towns of
lower Minnesota, several of the p3rty be
ing from Dulatb. In a specl car the)
carried a couple of tons of samples of rich
vermilion ranee iron ort. Kach sample
wa5 tied to a label and at every town along
the route, a large number of jpscimen
were thrown oat. This morning tbe
walked out to Genera! Harrison's resi
dence preceded by a dray bearing a bug"
specimen iron ore weighing over iJO
ponnds. Th-s was placed id the general's
front yard. They were cordially receiTi
in th jjarlors by both General and Mr
Harrison. Dr. Fred Barrett, edttor of
the Vermilion Iron Journal, introduce!
each member. There was no speech mak
ing. JstiXXSXTOUS, Oct. 2. Delatioa from
Fnlun and Marshall coanti aiuabcris:
between, seven hundred and a thousand
called on General Harrison this-afternoon.
The visitors were chiefly fanners from the
vicinity of Plymouth and Rochester.
The weather continuing cool, outdoor
receptions in University park, or else
where have been abandoned. The dele
gations were accordingly escorted to Pfaf
fiyn's hall, on Pennsylvania avenue.
General Harrison spoke as follows: It
is encouraging to hear that the prosperous
and intelligent farmers of Marshall and
Fulton counties have not been misled by
the attempt to separate the agricultural
vote from the vote of the shop. It has
seemed to mft that the Mills bill was
framed for the purpose of driving from the
support of protection the column of agri
cultural voters, not by showing them fa
vors but the reverse by placing agricul
tural product on the free list, thus with
drawing from the farmer the direct benefit
he is receiving from- the tariff law as
affecting the products of his labor, hoping
that the farmers might then be relied upon
to pull down the rest of the structure.
Iam glad to believe that we havein Indiana
a class of farmers too intelligent to be
caught by these unfair and fallacious
propositions. Great applause. I had
today a visit from twenty or more gentle
men who come from the most northern
part of Minnesota where within the last
lour years has been discovered and de
veloped a great deposit of iron ore, espe
cially adapted to the manufacture of steel.
Within these four years since! these mines
were opened they tell me that about a
million tons of ore has been mined and
sent to the furnaces. They also mentiou
the fact that arrangements already are
being made to bring the block coal of
Indiana to the mouth of those iron mines,
that the work of smelting may be
done there. This is a good illus
tration of tho interlocking of in
terest between widely separated states
of the union, applause a new market and
a larger demand for Indiana coal.
The attempt is often made to create the
impression that only particular classes of
workingmen are benefitted by a protective
tariff. There can be nothing more untrue;
the wages of all labor upon the farm, labor
upon our streets, has a direct and essential
relation to the scale of wages that is paid
to skilled labor. Applause. One might
as well say that you could bring down the
price of a higher grade of cotton cloth
without affecting the price of lower grades
as to say that you can degrade the
price of skilled labor without degrading
the wages of unskilled labor. Applause. J
This attempt to classify the schedule with
men who are benefitted by a protective
tariff is utterly deceptive. Applause.
The benefits are felt by all classes of our
people; by the farmers as well as by the
workmen in our mills; by the man who
works on the street as well as tho skilled
laborer who works in the mill; by tho
womon in the household and by the
children who Are now in the
school and might otherwise
be in the mills. Applause.
It is a policy broad enough to embrace
within the scope of its beneficent in
fluence all our population. Applause.
I thank you for your visit nnd will be
glad to meet any of you personally who
desire to see me. Applause.J The visit
ors then filed by and shook hands with the
Col. D. T. Alexander, of Buffalo, who
acted as General Harrison's secretary in
the earlier weeks of the campaign, has re
turned and is temporarily assisting Mr.
Miller with the general's correspondence.
Mrs. Harrison was the recepient today of
a handsome preseut from Miss Mary A
Williamson, of Layfayette, Ind. It is an
artistic table covering, designed and ex
ecuted by the donor. It represents a view
of the Tippecanoe battle ground, enclosed
by an arch emblematic of the bow of
nrnmtae. Tub border is oak burrs and
leaves, the whole painted on bolting cloth.
with small beads ana sllK worKca into tne
outline of the leaves. Mrs. Harrison
prizes the gift highly, because of its high
art of which she is au excellent judge,
bning an artist herself. Another
recent gift from Mrs. McLaughlin, of
Cincinnati, is a miniature gold bar, au
emblem of hard cider days, which was
worn by the donor's aunt forty-eight years
There is a strong probability that the
Hon. Levi P. Morton will bo one of tho
distinguished visitors to arrive at, Indian
apolis on the 11th instant. It is under
stood he promised several weeks ago to
visit Imliaua during the campaign and
that he would if possible make it conveni
ent to bo here the same day that Senator
John bherman, Mr. Blaine, General Alger,
Governor I-'oraker. General Gibson and
others are expecten.
General Ilovey and Corporal Tanner
spoke tonight at Martinsville and Senator
Turpie at Knox.

that Judge Thurman will issue no letter

extended expression of views in speeches
during the campaign. The judge has for a
