Sunday Closing- of the World's Fair
Strong- Appeal* Made for Money for
BdacaMng Toaaf Men for the BXln
iitrj—The Reformed Pre*■•
By the Associated Preaal
Washington, May 22.—1n the Presby
terian general assembly this morning
bills and overtures were distributed to
committees, after which the report of
the' special committee on Sabbath ob
servance, of which the late Col. Elliott
F. Shepard was chairman, was read by
his private secretary. The report re
cited the successful efforts of the com
mittee in securing a Sunday world's fair
closing clause in the congressional ap
The report recommended the adoption
of resolutions of regret at the death of
Shepard ; an expression of gratitude tor
the success of the effort to secure na
tional sanction for world's fair Snnday
doting; declaring that any attempt
hereafter to open the gates Sundays
would be a gross aff out to Christian
conscience and a flagrant breach of faith ;
that in view of the action of tbe local
directory favoring the opening of the
grounds on Sunday, the importance of
urging on the people to stand by con
science, at whatever sacrifice of personal
profit or pleasure, ie apparent, and point
ing out that now is a good time for tbe
formation of associations to protect the
weekly day of re-it. The report also recom
mended the distribution of Sabbath lit
erature at the world's fair.
When the order of bills and overtures
wae reached there was a short, sharp
struggle over the master of tbe reference
of overtures on the Briggs case. There
was considerable misunderstanding and
much confusion for a time, but in tbe
end alt the Briggs overtures were re
ferred to the judiciary committee.
The board of missions among the
freemen reported and recommended
$250,000 for work and $400,000 for Biddle
Tbe moderator then announced the
remaining committees. Among the
chairmen of synod* are: California,
Harry S. Jordan; Oregon, Henry G.
Pollock; Utah, Louis R. Foote; Wash
ington, James N. McDiffond.
Then there was another outbreak in
tbe Briggs case. Dr. Yonng stated that
the overtures from Chicago and Detroit
had been found to have no reference to
the Bngge case, and insisted that they
be sent to the committee on church
polity. He moved to co amend. There
was a season of hot talk then, bnt the
amendment was beaten, and the over
tures went to tbe committee.
A recess was taken at noon, during
which the commissioners were photo
graphed in a group.
At the afternoon session tbe report of
the committee on Sabbath observance
coming up for consideration, President
Wardtield of Lafayette college proposed
the additional recommendation that the
third Sunday in June be set apart as a
day when sermons be preached in all
chnrchee and prayers offered in behalf
of the effort to keep the gates of the
world's fair closed.
Rev. Mr. McCauley of Dayton, Ohio,
offered another addition, to wit: That
in case the Sunday closing rnle be vio
lated, the exhibit of the Presbyterian
church be removed.
Several recommendations, together
with these, were adopted.
In the progress of the diecu eion, Rev.
W. 8. Jerome of Pontiac, Mich.,opposed
the removal of the Preshyterian exoibit
in case the Sunday closing law was vio
lated. He opposed it for the reason
that if the fair was kept open on Snnday
there was all the more reason why the
exhibit shonld be there where the peo
ple could see something good. Mr.
Jerome was overwhelmingly in the
minority, he and Rev. T. B. Rennick of
Geneva, N, J., being the only two

Ewing of Corning, lowa. It commended
the work of the board and asked $150,

amount haa been reduced from $7000 to
Dr. Poor said in tbe past cix yeare the
Presbyterian denomination had been
compelled to draw on other denomina
tions for 550 ministers to do its work.
His appeal for money to carry on the
work of educating young men for the
ministry wae supplemented by Presi
dent Wartield of Lafayette college, who
denounced as a shame and reproach the
attitude of the church toward young
men who desire to prepare for the min
istry and have not the fnnde themselves
to Hecnre an education.
Elder Davis Jacks of Monterey, Cal.,
closed the discussion with the sugges
tion that he wonld give $100 toward
wiping out the $000 debt, if the board
would pay the remainder (applause),
and if a suitable man were secured to
talk money out oi men's pockets to* the
education of youOg men, he would pay
$1000 a year toward paying the right
man. fCreat applause.]
The recommendations of the committee
An overture from the presbytery of
Bt. Claireville, asking the board'of edu
cation to lend money to candidates who
prefer to borrow, rather than accept a
gift, was reported with a favoable
recommendation, toe maximum amount
to tie loaned to be $160 per annum. The
recommendation was adopted.
Rev. Mr. Reed of the North China
presbytery presented resolutions, which
were referred to the committee on the
Chinese exclusion act, expressing deep
gratitude for the favor extended mis
■ionaries and their work in China by the
Chinese authorities and for the settle
ment of difficulties which existed,
especially in the Chang Tung province;
also for very valuable aid rendered by
United States Minister Denby.
Adjourned till tomorrow.

New York, May 22. —The general

Fir* at Rlalto—Paolflo
By the Associated Peaa.l
San Francisco, May 22.—The cham
pion pugilist, James J. Corbett, arrived
at hie home in this city today. It was
his first appearance here since his battle
with John L. Sullivan in New Orleans,
and his relatives and friends gave him
a hearty welcome. His mother and
other members of his family, and a large
delegation from the Olympic Athletic
club, of which Corbett was formerly in
structor, met the champion on the train
at Oakland and accompanied him across
the bay. Tonight Corbett and his com
pany appeared at the California theater,
in his play Gentleman Jack. Previous
to the performance, the Olympic club,
headed by a brass band, marched to the
Baldwin hotel where Corbett wae stop
ping and escorted him to the theater.
Great crowds of people were in the
streets as the procession passed, and
when Corbett arrived in front of the
theater the street was packed from one
side to the otner by enthusiastic ad
mirers who gave the champion a rous
ing welcome. The theater was decor
ated with flags aud flowers inside and
out. Corbett was well received during
the performance, and floral offerings
were numerous. One piece, presented
by the Olympic club, was 12 feet high
and was a handsome and costly design.
SAN FRANCISCO'S UNEMPLOYED.
Lying Circulars Scattered Broadcast by
San Francisco, May 22. —Mayor Ellert
is in receipt of a letter from C. C. Rit
tenhouee of Hastings, Neb., calling
attention to a circular forwarded to him
and others in which it is represented
that there are from 6000 to 10,000 people
in the city in a destitute and starving
condition, and appealing to the public
for financial aid. . The circular farther
tells of 'he enforced idleness of thou
sands, and then directs national notice
to the miserable sanitary condition of
Chinatown, declaring that all con
tributions would be devoted to its
disinfection. Today Mayor Eliert
summoned to his office W. M. Willey,
president of an organization known as
San Francisco's Unemployed, and called
him to account in severe terms for the
authorship of the circular. The mayor
roundly denounced Willey's assertions
as untrue and harmful. Willey, who is
a professional agitator, claimed that no
money contributions have so far been
received, though the circular has been
sent broadcast tbrongbout the United
States. Mayor Ellert notified the mayor
of Hastings that San Francisco is amply
able to take cate of its unemployed, of
which there is no unusual number.
A BLOODY AFFRAY.
Three Maxlcana Fight for a Woman's
San Bernardino, May °2. —[Special to
the Hkrald.J —Today about noon two
Mexicans, named Fort'no Madri and
Manuel Solano, we c brought to this
city by Deputy Sheriff J. Rivera and
placed in the county jail. Late last
evening a three-handed fight occurred
at o d San Bernardino, in which the
above-named persons and Jesus Barce
lon took a hand. Tbe cause was trouble
over a woman who bad smiled on all
. three. It seems Barcelon was the most
favored, so the other two went to his
bouse for the purpose of killing or
badly whipping him He met them
with a revolver and knife, and shot
Madri twice and cut Solano in several
places. One of the shots took effect in
Madri's back between the shoulders,
while the other struck him in the right,
side of tbe mouth and was extracted
near the ear. The other bullet has not
been found. Barcelon is being carad for
by friends near the seat of trouble, and
ie not thought to be seriously hurt, al
though he received several knife
wounds. The physicians are of the
opinion that Madri will not recover.

that the depot was saved.
DOWN WITH GLANDERS.
Two Men Catch a Terrible IHaeaae from
a Hick Itorae*
Sacramknto, May 22.—The Bee today
published a sensational story about a
young man named Murray who is suffer
ing from an attack of glanders. Murray
lias been conducting a ranch for his
mother. About three weeks ago he nor
rowed a horse from a neighboring
farmer, and one day while adjusting
the bridle the hnrse sneezed, throwing
foam and mucous into Murray's face
and eyes. He simply thought the ani
mal was suffering from a cold. A few
days later Murray began to experience
terrible pains in the head, and now his
body is a mass of running sores, and the
physicians are of the opinion that the
case will prove fatal. The man from
whom Murray borrowed the horse is
also down with the disease.
The Canadian Pacific Hakes a Bis; Cat
on TV..stern Freight.
New York, May 22.—The Canadian
Pacific rtilway today reduced the rates
on freight between this city and San
Francisco to $1 per 100 pounds for the
cheapest class of freight, and $2 75 per
100 pounds for the highest. This is
done to meet the reduction on the same
classes of freight made last week by the
Southern Pacific railroad, and the new
rates of the Canadian Pacific are 10 per
cent lower than its rival's. The South
ern Pacific has not yet made up its mind
to reduce its rates farther. C.
P. Huntington denied today that
there was "a war of rates" be
tween the two railways. He said
the relations were most friendly. He
explained the seeming conflict by say
ing be had figured out that the South
ern Pacific could carry at a very low
rate certain freight which had hitherto
gone around Cape Horn to San Francis
co, and yet make a small profit. Small
as it was, he said, it was so much in tbe
treasury that would not otherwise be
there, and he considered this 'act a good
reason for putting it there. Huntington
profeesed unconcern at the last reduc
tion made by the Canadian Pacific. He
was inclined to think, he said, that tbe
Southern Pacific would not lower its
tariff from present figures.
Western Passenger Troubles.
Chicago, May 22.—There were no de
velopments worthy of note in the west
ern passenger troubles today. Tbe west
ern roads have declined to join with the
Southern Pacific in making a round-trip
rate of $50 from California to the world's
fair and return for railway employes.
A Chinese Slave Case.
Santa Barbara, May 22.—A Chinese
woman nam -d Ah Ying was arrested in

with grand larceny. A Chinese mer
chant brings tbe charge, alleging that
she stole $125 worth of jewelry.
THE SPANISH PRINCESS.
KUI.AI.IA IS ENJOYING HER VISIT
She Has Her Pictures Taken, Inspects

Washington monument All
In One Day.
Washington, May 22.—This morning
Princeße Euialia, attired in a gorgeouß
evening drees, went in a closet) carriage
to a photograph gallery, and evinced
the liveliest interest in tbe proceedings
while a number of negatives were taken.
At 1 o'clock this afternoon she went
to the treasury department, where
Secretary Carlisle acted as her escort
through tbe money vaults.
The news of the prineesß' arrival had
spread 1 , so the corridor from which the
vaults were reached became a solid
mass of humanity. There are 3000 em
ployes in the treasury building, and it
seemed that all of these were packed in
that poorly lighted space. The women
were the more strenuous in their efforts
to see her royal highness. It was the
infanta's first experience with a crowd
of American women and she enjoyed it.
Impulsively she walked over to the
grating, and nodding her head briskly,
and with her face wreathed in Biniles,
and talking in English, said to her
"How do you do? You are very,
very good. I thank yon so much. It ie
good to be here, for you are very kind.
I like America; I like the American
people; I like you all. Thank yon.
Good bye." And then she passed on to
the next door and talked with the peo
ple there, while a chorus of "Oh, Oh 1"
"lent she lovely?" "Isn't she sweet?"
went up from tie recipients of her
After the infanta had seen all to be
seen, she came out into the corridors
again on the way to the carriage, lean
ing on the arm of Secretary Carlisle.
To the crowd, grown larger by half, she
cried: "Goodbye. Thank you."
The prince and tbe others in the party
were laughing heartily. From the
treasury department tbe party was
driven to the Washington monument.
After a trip to the top and some time
was spent in enjoying the view, the vis
itors descended and were driven to the
capitol, after which tbe infanta went
b. ck to the Arlington.
Luncheon was followed by a drive
about the city. This evening the infanta
was given a serenade by the marine
band, and tonight she was entertained
at an official dinner given by Mr. and

Official Trial of the New
Cruiser New York.
She Develops a Speed of 21.09
Knots Per Hour.
This Makes Her the Fastest Craft ol
Her Class Afloat.
The British Ships Blake and Rlen&elnt
Mo Longer In It—The Cramps Gat
the Biggest Premium Ever
By tho Associated Press.]
Boston, May 22.—With her forward
torpedo tubes buried deep in the sea
and the water pushed almost as high as
the forecastle, the armored cruiser New
York steamed across the line today,
breaking the world's record and win
ning for her builders tho largest premium
ever paid in any country. When 21
knots was predicted as the speed for the
ne* cruiser many hoped, bnt few be
lieved her engines would ever be able to
drive such an immense mass of steel
through the water at this rate. When
she crossed the line today with a speed
of 21 09 knots through the water, and
some corrections yet to be added for
tide, the enthusiasm on board was in
tense. This gives the United States no*
only the moßt powerful, but the swifteat
armored cruising vessel.
THE BRITISHERS OUTDONE.
There haß boen great enthusiasm in
England over the performance of the
cruisers Blake and Blenheim, some
claiming the latter attained a speed,oi
22 knots. However, these vessels are
not armored, but simply protected by
four-inch decks over the machinery and
boilers. Even equal speed for them,
therefore, would be nothing remark
able against a vessel carrying in addi
tion to a six inch protective deck, a five
inch side belt and two turrets, each 11
incheß thick. In the second place,
neither of these vessels ever had an
official trial over a measured course.
The Blake broke down from leaky boil
ere alter reaching a Bpeed of 19.7 kn ts
in shoal water and developing only
13,000 ho "se power, while the Blenheim
was only by a patent log, which,
it ia claimed, indicated 22., knots, bin
same instrument on board the JJe*
York showed a spoed of 23 knots, and
the difference between that and the
actual distance covered is proof how un
reliable patent logs are as official tests.
TUB TRIAL BEGUN,
At 8 o'clock this morning the New
York hoisted her anchor and taeaued for
the open sea. The wind was light from
the northwest nnd the aea smooth. Tie
cruiser moved off at an easy pace. Out
gradually warmed up and by the time
the Vesuvius was in sight was going
over 20 knots, with her engines making
about 130 turns per minute. Gl mcester
was "ff the port beam about 9 o'clock.
Twenty five minutes later a red flag was
broken out at the port yardarm and the
New York went over the line making
130 revolutions per minute. The steam
pressure was then 165 pounds to the
square inch, the vessel working a
trifle over 20 knots. In a few min
utes the revolutions jumped up
to 136 and the steam to 170 pounds,
both of which were held throughout the
entiie trip. Now the great furnace,
began to roar; on flew the great cruiser,
increasing her speed at every jump.
The Nina was passed at 9:46, the Ben
nington at 10:05, and the Fern, the
half way mark, at 10:21. Then came
the tug Fortune, at 10:41; the Leyden
at 11:05, and finally the historic old
Kearsage at 11:25 The rigging of the
corvette was black with men, who
cheered the war ship as she passed.
THE RACE BACK.
A neat turn was made and the race
back over the course began. At tl :44
the Kearearge was off the etarboard
beam with the New York headed to tbe
southward. The Leyden was passed at
12:04; Fortune, 12:27; Fern, 12:48; Ben
nington, 1 :01; Nina. 1:20, and Vesuvius
at 1:41. the entire course of 31.65 nauti
cal miles was steamed over twice. On tbe
first run the sosed wae 20 83 knots and
the second 21 .15, the difference being
due to the tide, which was against the
vessel on the trip north. The average
of the speeds gives 21.09 .coots, with a
possibility of its being greater when the
true current correction is added.
On the whole, the day's record was a
triump for American skill and genius,
and will stand pre-eminently alone until
some of our new war ships beat it.
A TORNADO IN WISCONSIN.
Buildings Destroyed and Several ljtves
Darlington, Wis., May 22.—About 5
o'clock this afternoon a tornado passed
through this city and through the
southern part of tbe townehip of Willow
Springe, destroying several houses,
barns and other buildings. Mrs. James
Bailey was killed and Mr. Bailey serious
ly injnred. The houses of William Krua,

An Autl-Trust Deuial«n.
Nbw York, May 22. —Judge Coxe in

law. He sustained the demurrer in the
suit of the Dueber Watch Case M inufac

Watch and Clock company and 13 other
manufacturers of watch oases for $150,
