TO OPPOSE HARRISON.
Matt Quay Will Defeat
the Ex-President if
A BITTER FIGHT AHEAD.
Politicians of Pennsylvania
Laying Wires to Capture
OLD SCORES MAY SE PAID OFF.
Strength of the Beaver Statesman
Pitted Against Martin and
PJTTSBURG, Pa., Oct. 3.— A bitter fight
over delegates to the next Republican
National Convention has already begun in
this State. It is early and bitter because
the enemies of Senator Matthew Stanley
ijuay hope to capture the delegation and
push "the old man" out of National poli
tic?. Quay is an avowed enemy of ex-
President Harrison, and if he can land the
delegates there is no doubt whatever that
Pennsylvania will swine against the ex-
President. The Beaver statesman is an
expert angler and has always caught what
he went after in a political way. There is
a general belief in this State that he will
catch this time.
The forces lir.ed up against the Senator
are Christopher L. Magee of this city and
David Martin of Philadelphia, the leaders
in municipal affairs. Governor Hastings
i» the uncertain quantity in the light, but
as the bosses have industriously chased
the Presidential bee about hia head Has
tings is to all appearances on their side.
Just how potent is this combination,
known as the "hog combine," was shown
in the campaign of this summer for State
chairman. Quay wanted to be chairman,
and the fight to get it was acknowledged
by himself to he the hardest he ever had.
Yet he beat the combine two to one, de
epite their pull iioni State appointments
and all the power of the machines of two
cities. Quay after his victory offered to
conciliate Hasting 3, but apparently in
Neither aide expects quarter, Magee
knifed Quay's candidate for Governor four
years ago with the Allegheny County vote
and helped a Democrat into office. His
eecond revolt has finally "queered" him
■with Quay. Martin's offense was turning
down Quay's candidate for Mayor of Phila
delphia, for which he was denounced in
the Senate as wearing the dollar mark of
the corporations on Ins forehead. Though
they failed to whip him this summer,
the*e bosses are still hammering at the
man who taught them most of their politics.
Tiie Lexowing of both cities is incipient,
and if it ever is carried out it means the
downfall of Magee and Martin. A legisla
tive committee will get to work soon in
William Perm's town.
These are the motives that lend des
peration to the fight. Hut there does not
appear to be any doubt that Quay will con
tinue to dominate Pennsylvania politics.
In the August fight his opponents carried
only three Congressional districts outside
of Allegheny and Philadelphia counties.
In the interval the Quay people have
effected organizations in this city, and the
Senator will undoubtedly be much stronger
in this contest.
Quay has declared that he is for Reed
for President first and McKinley after
ward. He will, in all likelihood, carry the
State delegation with him into the next
National Republican Convention, and he
•will most surely rignt Harrison for all
time. In fact when his last victory proved
that he could still dominate the State, the
prediction was freely made that Harri
son's chances had been greatly reduced.
The break between the ex-National chair
man and the ex-President dates from
shortly after Harrison's election. Quay
was turned down on appointments. Har
rison piously attributed h;s election to
Providence and not to the efforts of Quay
as National chairman. That was too much
for the Beaver statesman, and he has had
n.o use for the ex-President since.
Senator Quay arrived from Florida this
week, where he had been fishing, and
came to his home in Beaver, twenty-eight
miles from this city. His return to this
State caused a scurrying of his opponents
to Harrisburg to lay more plans to head
him off from the delegates. This is the
situation in Pennsylvania now, and Quay
with his characteristic taciturnity is let
ting the others do all the spectacular work.
THE EUCHARISTIC LEAGUE
Resclutions Relating to the
Power to Cause Veneration
for the Sabbath.
Father Yazbeck Told of the Work
In the Eastern and Western
WASHINGTON, D. C, Oct. 3.— The
Priests' Eucharistic League ended its con
gress to-day by the adoption of resolutions
pledging the league to do everything in its
power to cause the veneration of the Sab
bath, and indorsing the decree of the
Plenary Council of Baltimore on that sub
ject. The Plenary Council's decree urges
pastors to secure the sanctification of Sun
days, and specifies the opening of saloons
as one way of its desecration. The resolu
tions, which were presented by Rev. Wal
ter Elliott of St. Paul's Church, New York
City, chairman of the committee on reso
lutions, were adopted unanimously without
comment. The only other important point
dealt with was that indorsing Christian
Rev. Joseph Yazbeck read a paper on
. ''The Holy Eucharist in the Eastern
Church." In view of the Armenian
trouble, Father Yazbeck's paper proved of
great interest. He said that if obedience
to the supreme authority and a few minor
points were eliminated it would be difficult
to discover any difference between the
Eastern church and the Roman church.
The Christians of the East, he stated, liked
the Roman church, and would join it if
certain differences were reconciled. "Let
the shepherds agree and we will follow,
■was their position," said Father Yazbeck,
and the sentiment was greeted with ap
According to Father Yazbeck the strong
est proof that the Eastern church recog
nized the real presence was that all the
Eastern churches had mass and com
munion according to the Catholic manner.
The speaker asked the question, "What is
the prospect of a union between the East
ern and Western churches?" and pro
ceeded to answer it by saying that with
kindness and patience he would not be
surprised if great numbers of Eastern
Christians would come to the Roman
church. The great reason why they were
inactive on this point was that they were
subservient to the princes and potentates.
Father Zazbeck ended his discourse with
prayers for the Pope and that Leo XIII
might live to witness the union between
the Eastern and Western churches. Pro
longed applause followed this senti

HELD UP A POSTOFFICE
Charles White Begins Well but
Ends Badly With His
Two Officers Lie In Wait and Catch
Him In the Act of Rob
SAX BERNARDINO, Cab., Oct. 3.— The
most surprised man in San Bernardino
County to-night was Charles White, ati
Eastern visitor, who attempted to hold up
the postoffice at Idle wild, a cross-road
store, four miles from here. Just as he
bad linished his command, "Put up your
hands," he encountered a shotgun, and
turning his head was confronted with a
revolver. Behinu each weapon was an
officer. "White surrendered.
This episode occurred at half-past 8.
Constable T. J. West of this city and ex-
Peputy Sheriff John C. King, now special
officer of the Santa Fe Railroad, had been
waiting in the store concealed since dark.
Of course they had received a tip of the in
tended hold-up, but they firmly declined
to even hint the source. "
White is 18 years old and 6 feet 2 inches
high. He was not masked. Enterine the
store he addressed the proprietor, Fred
Lawrence, in a cheerful tone, as if he were
asking for a plug of tobacco, "Put up your
hands," at the same time drawing and
cocking an old-fashioned single action
pow.ler and ball revolver.
Up went Lawrence's hands and he
asked, "What do you want?"
White answered, "I want your money,
and be quick about it.'"
The next instant White was paralyzed by
a stern command, "Down with it!" which
came from a voice not three feet away, and
turning he looked into the muzzle of a
double-harreled shotgun, with which John
King had drawn a bead on him. He threw
his weapon to the floor and began dodging
Constable West approached him from
the other direction with a drawn revolver,
and White gracefully submitted to the ad
justment of the handcuffs. White had
rope with which he intended to bind Law
rence, and then gag him. It was his fur
ther intention to proceed to Redlands and
hold up another store. He was quite cooJ,
and remarked to the officers as they
brought him here to-night, "I would have
had a soft thing if you fellows had not got
on tome. Do you know I could not help
but laugh the" way the old man stuttered
when I made him throw up his hands."
White claims to hail Irom«St. Louis.
By singular coincidence Vadim Deinens,
the High School boy from Ixjs Angeles
who held up the station agent at North
Cucamonga and a store at lomroosa a few
weeks ago, is exactly the same age, same
height and same physique as this latest
candidate for San Quentin. Both are now
in the County Jail.
ZOOKS BAD FOR EBAXKS.
The Cartridge* Identified and the lie-
fetulnnt Looking Gloomy.
BAN DIEGO, Cal., Oct. 3.— The exami
nation of Joe Ebanks, charged with the
murder of Mrs. Stiles and her father, J. B.
Borden, near Las Flores on September 10,
developed many important features to-day.
Yesterday the District Attorney intro
duced a box of cartridges, which he hinted
would be proven to be the source from
which the bullets were taken that killed
the aged father and daughter.
To-day witnesses from Fullerton, Orange
County, testified that Ebanka worked
there the week before the killing, and stole
two revolvers, one being a Colt's 40, the
same as the bullets which did the deadly
work. He was seen to place thi3 gun and
belt in a sack, which he carried when leav
ing town for the South. When he sepa
rated from his companion, Garges. on the
morning of the murder, he carried the
sack, but when he rejoined Garges tv/o
hours later he did not have the sack and
did not explain its absence.
The cartridges which killed the old couple
and those remaining in the box were of the
same make, peculiar in shape and fully
identified by their owner, K. F. Gibson of
Fullerton. At first Ebanks declared he
would need no witnesses to clear himself,
but since to-day's evidence his attorney
has asked for a number of subpenas. The
case is assuming much importance and
public interest in it is increasing.

THIS SAN FRANCISCO CALL, FRIDAY, OCTOBER 4, 1895,
MORSS IS GENEROUS.
Not a Candidate for the
ALWAYS EUSTIS' FEIEND.
No Truth In the Report That
the Consul-General Was
STANDING OF THE WALLER CA3E
Diplomats Doing AM In Their Power
to Assist the Imprisoned
CHICAGO, 11t,., Oct. 3.-R. E. Morss,
United States Consul-General at Paris,
who is away from his post on a leave of
absence, passed through this city to-day.
In the course of an interview he denied
there was any tounda-tion for the numerous
stories that have been circulated regarding
the alleged dissatisfaction of the State De
partment at Washington with negoti
ations in general in France and the Waller
case in particular.
He stated there was no truth in the
report that the President had called him
home because of the confidence reposed in
him to gain information on these points.
Mr. Mors3 said:
"The facts are that I have nothing to do
with the diplomatic service and have not
been called home by anybody. I came
home for uo purpose of the sort. I never
said or did a thing to give plausibility to
such a story, and there is no reason to
believe that the administration is dissatis
fied with Mr. Eustis' handling of the Wal
ler case. Neither is there any foundation
for the report that I contemplate resign
"Officially I know nothing whatever of
the Waller case, but, as I have been .in Paris
and have followed it closely in the home
and foreign press, I have kept up with the
feeling expressed in both countries, and
also have a pretty accurate idea of the
matter as it now stands. I received a per
sonal letter from Embassador Eustis this
morning on my arrival iti Chicago, in
which he 6peuk3 of the Waller case, and

"Mr. Eustis is a Southerner, and it has
been charged that because Mr. Waller is a
negro he has been indifferent in the
matter. lam sure that nothing is further
from the fact. Some of the questions in
volved are delicate ones, but in my opinion
the final result will reflect the utmost
credit on Mr. Eustis and the administra
tion. In justice to Mr. Euatis, it should
be said that notwithstanding the persist
ent newspaper attacks upon him, both in
France and the United States, he is popu
lar, both socially and personally, not only
with his own countrymen in France, but
with the French people themselves.
"My relations with Mr. Eustis are of the
most cordial character, and the statement
that I have any ambitions to succeed him
or that I came over here in the interest of
such ambition is false.' 1
FOR CHRISTIAN UNITY,
(Xmtinued from First Page.
of the House of Bishops was the adoption
of a resolution approving by implication
the suppression of the Fitzsimmons-
Corbett fight by the Texas Legislature.
Bishop Doane of Albany was placed in
episcopal charge of the church and congre
gations in continental Europe.
When the delegates met in committee of
the whole after the midday recess a code
of rules designed to prevent a repetition
of the parliamentary tangle in which the
morning session had involved itself was
adopted, and thereafter there was smooth
sailing. Debate was inaugurated upon
the proposition to adopt the declaration,
and verbal changes were presented by
Delegates Taylor of Springfield, 111., and
Scott of Virginia. Dr. Spalding of Ala
bama took the ground that no declaration
was necessary. There were, he said, a suffi
cient number of affirmations of faith in
the prayer-book. Dr. Beverly Tucker of
Virginia concurred. Dr. Elliott of Mary
land ureed that it was a serious question
whether the General Convention had
power to establish a new constitution
until expressly instructed to do so by the
diocesan conventions. Under the pre
cedence of the general conventions of
18S6 and 1789 it certainly had no such
power. He appealed to the delegates as
to whether they had been empowered to
set forth, establish or adopt a new law for
the church, and there was a great shout
The debate was continued by Drs. Egar,
New YorK; Froude, Minnesota; Daven
port, Tennessee; and ex-Governor Brad
ford Prince of New Mexico, all opposing
approval of the declaration. Finally, Dr.
Tucker moved that it be stricken out, but
gave way to Lay Delegate Hill Burgwin,
one of the oldest and most skilled parlia
mentarians in the house, and who voiced
the opposition in a resolution setting forth
that "it was not desirable that any pre
amble or declaration should precede the
constitution now submitted for action."
This was adopted almost unanimously by
a viva voce vote and the minority did not
care to challenge a division.
The constitution itself was now before
the convention and by a vote of 147 to 104
it was decided to pluralize it by calling it
"constitutions." On the proposal to sub
stitute the title "general synod" for "gen
eral convention" Dr. Jewell of Milwaukee
made a vigorous speech. It was, he said,
an Eastern term, ana one not used by the
Western church. The so-called Presby
terians usea it to designate a secondary
body, and in that church it was a kind of
third wheel. The so-called Lutherans also
used it, and in his parish there were no less
than four Lutheran synods and all of them
by the ears.
Dr. Carpenter of New Jersey favored the
term "general council," while Dr. Webber
of Fon dv Lac suggested "national coun
cil." Dean Carmichael of Virginia was in
clined to blush at seeing Americans will
ing to deny their own institutions and
tneir own name, and urged that any
change would be a monstrosity. A fervid
speech against the change was made by
Dr. Fulton of Philadelphia.
When the vote was taken the "council"
amendments were defeated, and the pro
posal of the committee to adopt the desig
nation "seneral svnnd" met a similar fate.
A resolution by Dr. Garnett of Virginia to
insert in the paragraph "a general conven
tion of the Protestant Episcopal Church in
the United States" instead of "this
church" was voted down— l3l to 151.
At this stage the paragraph which
merely defines the statutes of the conven
tion was about to be adopted without fur
ther debate when Dr. Taylor of Springfield
discovered that, the old provision by which
legislation enacted by the deputies be
comes a law if not objected to by the bish
ops within three days had been omitted.
Then there was a breeze. Dr. Taylor
insisted that without this saving clause
the Bishops could "pocket" all undesirable
J. C. Biddell, the eminent Philadelphia
lawyer, moved that the clause be restored.
The Bishops, he said, ought to lead in
obedience to the law, but they did not.
At the convention of 1889 they refused to
concur in certain measures, because they
wanted more time, and these measures
never became a law of the church despite
the three-day rule. He would like to know
what the country would say if the Presi
dent of the United States sent a message
to Congress with a veto, on the ground
that he had not had but a few days to con
sider the matter at issue. The Bishops
ought not to set the example of evasion of
the constitution of the church.
A warm response was made by Dr.
Spalding of California, who said the pre
ceding speaker had implied an unworthy
suspicion of the House of Bishops. It was
the last fag-end of an unjust suspicion of
the Bishops and their motives that too
long had existed in the church on the part
of the people who wanted to stop up some
little holes for fear of some miserable par
liamentary trickery. The committee rose
at this point, and the debate will be re
sumed in the morning. Before the dele
gates dispersed it was announced that the
day's offerings of the Woman's National
Auxiliary, now in session in St. Paul, had
reached the remarkable total of $53,000.
This was received with applause, but the
demonstrators were sternly rebuked by
Chairman Morgan Dix.
The chairmen of the standing commit
tees appointed to-day are : On the state
of the church, Rev. Dr. Duncan, Louisi
ana; general theological seminary. Dr.
Littel, Delaware; domestic and foreign
missionary society, Dr. Leffingwell, Maine;
admission of new dioceses, Dr. Richards,
Khode Island; consecration of Bishops,
Dr. Hoffman, New York; amendments to
the constitution, Dr. Huntington, New
York; on canons, Dr. Davenport, Tennes
see; expenses, Mr. Sowden, Massachu
setts; elections, Dr. Locke, Chicago; on
prayer-books, Dr. Perkins, Kentucky; on
Christian education, Dr. Bi,iss, Vermont.
At the reception to the Canadian Bishops
and divisions to-day Dr. l>ix promised
that the American church would send a
fraternal delegate to the Dominion con-
Jerence at Winnipeg next year.
The resolution passed in the House of
Bishops at the instance of the Bishop of
Western Texas reads as follows:
"That in the interest of good morals this
house desires to express its hearty sym
pathy with the prompt and courageous
application of the power of the civil gov
ernment toward the repression of the bar
barous, brutal and indecent exhibitions
and recreation of whatever sort."
The Bishops took up the revision of the
constitution at the afternoon session in
committee of the whole, the rules of which
prevent the making public of its proceed*
ings until reported to the House oi Depu

Opening Srutlon of a Moat Important
FREMONT, Nebr., Oct. 3.— The opening
session of the North Nebraska Methodist
Conference was held at the Methodist
Church last evening. The business ses
sion of the conference was opened this
morning by the celebration of the sacra
ment of the holy communion, Bishop J. P.
At the close of communion Bishop New
man called the conference to order. The
rollcall showed a good representation of
the clergymen present. A vote was
taken on what is known among Methodist
people as the Hamilton amendment, which
is that the term "delegates," as used in the
"Book of Discipline," be construed to mean
males only. The proposed amendment
was defeated by a vote of 1 in the affirma
tive and 04 in the negative.
The question of whether women should
be admitted to the general conference
then came before the conference and the
proposition to admit women to the gen
eral conference on equal terms with men,
was carried by a unanimous vote. The
conference was very enthusiastic over the
result, and it is safe to predict that the
North Nebraska conference will, as soon
as the canons of the church will permit,
have a woman representative or repre
sentatives in the next meetin -.

BRAYTOXT IVES TALKS.

The Old Deal is Dead.
TACOMA, Wash., Oct. 3.— Brayton Ives,
whose successful tight against the Villard
management and the recently resigned re
ceivers of the Northern Pacific Raiiroad
culminated in a decisive victory in Judge
Hanford's court at Seattle, is a much
talked of man of to-day. Capitalists of
two worlds, the Old and the New, have
been watching his course and his name is
on every one's lips. He arrived in Tacoma
to-day and stopped at the Tacoma Hotel,
where lie said to a Call representative:
I »m well pleased with Mr. Burleigh's ap
pointment as receiver, and while I had no
choice and did not know who would be ap
pointed it is most satisfactory. I have no idea
there will be any change in the policy of the
management to the detriment of Tacoma as
the terminus. In fact, he has assured me that
the road will be run under his management
on ft business basis for the welfare of the stock
holders, and the fact of his being a Seattle man
will not swerve him from his line oi duty in
the best interests of the road.
I cannot say what line of action will now be
taken to settle the question of jurisdiction be
tween the rival Circuit Courts until I return to
St. Paul, where I will learn more. But there
are two courses open, either for us to take it
into court or for the Judges to hold a confer
ence tnemaelvee. You will notice that Judge
Sanborn in continuing Judge Jenkins' order
appointing the new receiven expressly left
this question of jurisdiction open, and
Judge Hanford yesterday in making his ap
pointment held out the olive branch by saying
the appointment was temporary in its nature.
Jt is not clear to my mind what Judge Han
ford'g reference to the appellate court really
meant, but one thing is assured, that this
question of jurisdiction cau and will be set
tled. It may necessitate a discussion, a better
understanding and eventually harmony. It is
simply impossible to rnn the road as two halves
out of harmony with each other.
What prospect is there ol Jim Hill obtaining
control of the road?
About as much as there is that I will go up
into he nven this afternoon on wings, which
means none at all. i have been in close touch
With Mr. Morgan and Mr. Adams, and have it
direct that the old deal is dead. I know what
lam talking about when I say this. I am con
vinced the road is getting into such business
like shape and that the business is improving
bo rapidly that Jim ttiil ran never afford to
purchase the road at the price that will be
wanted for it. There is no possibility of it.
Mr. Morgan has himself told me the old deal

Judge Jenkins' Appointment of Receiver
■■; /•/, .' liigrlow Unsatisfactory.
MILWAUKEE, Wis., Oct. 3.-Judge
Jenkins of Milwaukee «urprised . all fac
tions in the great Northern Pacific Rail
road litigation by his appointment of the
successors to receivers Oakes, Payne and
Rouse. He named Frank G.Bigelow,
president of ' the First & National Bank of
this city, and Edward W. McHenry of St.
Paul, chief engineer of the Northern
Pacific. Mr.Bigelow.ia Henry C. Payne's
right-hand man, and the Ives faction can
eiDect little encouraeemp.nt from him.
Mr. McHenry is also a close friend of the
old receivers. The appointments are very
pleasing to the Oakes faction and it looks
very much as if Messrs. Oakes, Payne and
Rouse would practically remain in control
of the road, doing their business through
the new receivers, who no doubt will be
receivers in name only.
The action of Judge Gilbert of Seattle in
reference to the resignation of Messrs.
Oakes, Payne and Rouse and the appoint
ment of their successors by Judge Jenkins
is awaited with interest. It is plain that
Judge Jenkius intends to attempt to retain
jurisdiction over the vast property, and it
appears to be certain that Judge Gilbert
will reaffirm his declaration that the Mil
waukee Judge Josi jurisdiction when he
ordered the receivers to abrogate the lease
of the Wisconsin Central.
The new receivers are ordered to file
bonds in the sum of $500,000 each within
ten days from September 28 and to report
to the court in the same manner as their
predecessors. If at any time the appoint
ment of a third receiver is necessary, the
appointment will be made.
Of these appointments Counsel Mr-
Naught of the Northern Pacific says:
The court at Milwaukee, where no part of the
property of the Northern Pacific road is lo
cated, has appointed two receivers for the com
pany. This is the geatest judicial farce known
to the history of American courts. It is a well
recognized principle of interstate comity that
the court first acquiring jurisdiction will be
recognized as the court of primary jurisdiction
over the whole, but no rule nor principle of
comity or business justifies or requires the rec
ognition of a court without jurisdiction over
any part of the road as a court of jurisdiction
over the whole. The appointment of Mr. Bige
low as one of the receivers was a violation of
all rules heretofore governing the appointment
of receivers. He is not a resident of any of the
localities where the property is located, and
has no acrjuaintnnce with the road, its prop
erties or its relation with the public. Justice
Miller of the United States Supreme Court re
moved Messrs. Villard and Grceley from the
receivership of the Kausas and Pacific road
some fifteen years ago because they were non
residents and not acquainted with the prop
erty. This rule, which has always been recog
nized, with this single exception of the Mil-
WRUtee court, disqualifies Mr. Bigeiow for ap
pointment. Mr. HcHenry is acquainted with
the road, and ia in many respects a good ap
pointment, if the action of the court may be

Appointment in II In I' nicer.
SEATTLE, Wash., Oct. 3.— His appoint
ment having been concurred in by Judge
Gilbert of the United States District Court
for Oregon, Receiver Burleigh of the
Northern Paciiic returned from Portland
to Seattle on a special train this evening.
Aside from the selection of Mr. Dickinson
as general manager, he has as yet made no
appointments of special importance.
Samuel H. Piles of this city, it is said,
will be Mr. Burleigh's successor as general
counsel of the Oregon Improvement Com

pouring in upon Mr. Burleigh to-day from
all over the country. Many were from
prominent Eastern railroad men.

STOCKTON BRIBERY CASE
James Brown's Second Trial
Is Set Down for Octo-
Chief Witnesses Against Him Ara
Out of Town and May Not
STOCKTON, Cal., Oct. 3.— The second
trial of Supervisor James Brown, accused
of accepting a bribe in connection with the
adoption of plans for the new county hos
pital, was set this morning for the 17th
inst. At the former trial the jury dis
agreed, standing five for acquittal and
seven for conviction.
Charles Ward, one of the chief witnesses
for the prosecution, is out on bail pending
the decision of the Supreme Court on his
appeal to that tribivoal. Dr. C. H. Buison
is out of the State, and it ia not known
whether he will return to testify against
Brown, though the chances are against his
giving any testimony, as he is located in
the Northwest and is doing well.
It is known he has no desire to aid in
Brown's conviction. However, District
Attorney Nutter notified him this morning
to come back to Stockton to attend the
Union Flouring Mill* Saved by Automa
STOCKTON, Cal., Oct. 3.- A fire broke
ont this morning in the Union Flouring
Mills, and the large brick building nar
rowly escaped a costly scorching or de
struction. At 8 :30 o'olock smoke was seen
issuing from one of the dvut collectors,
which is located on the south side of the
sixth story, and before long the automatic
extinguishers were working.
Throughout the building are water pipes
at intervals along which are valves that
are opened when the temperature rises to
a certain degree. A lighted match held
close to them for a few moments will set
them in operation. As soon as the tire
Was discovered two streams of water were
turned on it, and in a few minutes the
blaze was put out.
The woodwork of the dust -collecting ma
chine was charred. The machinery in the
lower floor, directly under the dust-col
lectors was clogged up with a doughy sub
stance, made by the water reaching the
flour ia the machines. The cause of the
fire is unknown. The mills were running
this afternoon as usual, all damages having

Hudson Medical Institute, Stockton, Market .

thank you most sincerely for the great. benefit
I have derived from your few months of treat-
ment. When I first wrote to you I felt that life
was barely worth living; but, thank God,
through his help and yours, I am entirely
cured. Before I began treatment I was sickly,
weak and nervous. I had no energy; I also
had a severe congh and was very much in fear
of this, lor with my failing strength r feared
lung trouble. My mind was filled with all
sorts of terrible foreboding 9 and I was in a
very deplorable condition of health.'" I placed
myself in the hands of the doctors of the Hud-
son Medical Institute. I was told it wonld re-
quire four or five months to effect a cure, and I
am vow happy to say I am well. May God
bless you. W. P. DILLMAN,
