The entire session was given up to a
spirited discussion of the, subject ot dio
cesan missions, In "which a large number
of the delegates', both clergy and lay
men took part.
The report of the committee on missions,
which was submitted by Rev. J. A. Aspin
wall, Its chairman, formed the basis of
the discussion. It was very lengthy and
entered fully Into details. It recommended
that the convention raise for the mission
work of the diocese for the coming year
the sum of $5,000, the same amount as
was raised last year.
At the close of the discussion the recom
mendation of the committee was so amend
ed as to provide for the raising of $6,000
instead of $5,000, the amount to be ap
portioned by the i-.issipnary committee
among the several parishes and congrega
tions of the diocese.
The convention then adjourned until 1 0

Colored Boy Saved by Policeman
Hindi's Prompt Action.
Policeman Rinck, ot the F'ourth precinct,
dls-tingnished himselt yesterday evening
by saving the life or Charles Henry De
laney, a tweivc-ycar-old colored boy. whose
home is at No. 54 Jaokson alley northwest.
The boy went on a fishing expedition
3 chlcrdav afternoon, and after seating hlm
teir comfortably on a big flat stone on the
flood gates at the foot of Fourteenth street,
he cait in his line and waited patiently for
the wary rish.
Finally he fell asleep and rolled off his
perch Into the water. Jotcph Faunce, a
boatman, heard his cries for help and
came to his rescue, pulling him out with a
boat hook. Everybody thought he waadead,
but Just at this time the patrol wagon from
No. 4 station arrived with Policeman Rinck.
Wnile the others stood around deeming
the lad's case hopeless) the officer grasped
the loy In his arms and began rolling aim
upon the ground.
When signs ot life began to appear
the lad was placed In the wagon and the
driver instructed to hasten with all pos
sible speed to the Emergency Hospital.
On tho way to the hospital Policeman
Rinck continued to work upon the boy by
moving his arms and legs. Dr. Rahr
said it wns the only thing that saved the
boy's life. For more than an hour the
hospital staff worked upon him before he
revived consciousness and was able to
give his name and address. He was sent
to a ward and reported last night as being
in a fair way to recover.
