OPPOSED TO DIVORCE
Decisive Action Taken
by the Episcopal
CLASH WITH BISHOPS.
Proposed Change in the Title
Page of Prayer-Books
PLAN OF CHRISTIAN UNITY.
Discussion of Dr. Huntington's
Scheme Cut Short by an
MINNEAPOLIS, Mum., Oct. 16.— An
earnest desire to clear the calendar with all
possible dispatch was manifested by the
House of Deputies to-day. For the tenth
time the house declined to obliterate the
designation "Protestant Episcopal Church
in the United from the rubrics of
the church, the matter coming up this
time on a motion from the Bishops to
chance the title page of the prayer-book.
The 'Provincial system," which had been
made the special order of the day, was dis
posed of by reference to one of the three-year
committees, and a similar fate overtook
the perennial motion providing for the ac
ceptance by the general conference of ac
cession of parts of dioceses.
The majority and minority reports to the
amendment to the constitution making it
lawful for Bishops of the church to take
under their spiritual oversight congrega
tions of Christian people not heretofore in
communion with the church, or the plan
of Christian unity, of which Dr. Huntine
ton of New York has for years been the
earnest advocate, were taken up this after
noon, but the hour of adjournment ar
rived before the debate was well advanced.
The House of Bishops decided to erect the
present missionary jurisdiction of North
ern Texas into a diocese, which will prob
ably be known as the See of Dallas.
To-morrow the election of Bishops for
the missionary jurisdiction of Kioto
(Japan) and Alaska will take place.
When the House of Deputies reassembled
this morning another attack upon the
present title of the denomination immedi
ately made itself manifest in the presenta
tion of a report from the committee to con
sider tne message from the House of
Bishops recommending that the title page
of the Book of Common Prayer be changed
by the omission of the words "According
to the use of the Protestant Episcopal
church in the United States of America,"
and the substitution of the words "Ac
cording to American use."
There was a minority report signed by
J. Pierpont Morgan of New York, Messrs.
Biddle and Blancbard of Philadelphia and
Mr. Perkins of Kentucky, in which the
proposed change was characterized as a
virtual reopening of the subject of prayer
book revision, which has already been set
tled, and was therefore unwise and to be
deprecated. A disposition to cut off de
bate on the issue was manifested by the
delegates, and after Dr. Eaude of Minne
sota had characterized the proposal as one
of bad faith and Dr. Groton of Rhode
Island had spoken to the same effect, a
vote by dioceses and orders was taken. It
iesult«d : Clerical vote— Ayes 19, noes 30,
divided 3. Lay vote— Ayes 12, noes 30, di
vided H. The house therefore again re
fused to change the title as designated in
the prayer-book, and the formal resolu
tion of non-concurrence with the Bishops
was adopted by a laage majority.
Dean Hoffman, from the committee on
constitution and canons, made a final re
port, containing the proposed canons on
marriage and divorce, and upon which the
committee has been laboring ever since
the assembling of the convention. The
canons, which were received and placed on
file, read as follows:
"No minister of this church shall solemn
ize the marriage of any person who has a
divorced husband or wife still living, but
this prohibition shall not be held to apply
to the innocent party in a divorce, or to
parties once divorced from each other
seeking to be united again. If any minis
ter of this church knows or has reasonable
cause to believe that a person has been
married otherwise than aa the discipline
of this church allows, he shall not minister
t holy baptism or the holy communion to
such person without the written consent of
the Bishop of the diocese; provided, how
ever, that no minister shall in any case re
fuse the sacraments to a penitent person in
imminent danger of death."
This was concurred in by a vote of 196 to
The House of Bishops decided to read
just the boundaries of the missionary
jurisdictions, and the Bishops of Spring
field, Central Pennsylvania and California
were appointed a committee for that pur
One of the most powerful of ihe speeches
in favor of the provincial system was made
at the morning session by Rev. Dr. Edward
B. Spalding of California. He said that
there were needs in different sections of
the country to which the general conven
tion could not give attention. The peo
ple of California were greatly interested in
the provincial question. There were needs
on the Pacitic Coast which would take the
people of New England ton years of in
tellectual acclimation to enable them to
deal with intelligently.
The provincial system was the last link
of the episcopal system and they should
not allow the prejudices of the present to
hinder the growth of the future. It was
possible for what was called conservatism
to prove inertia. Dr. Spalding told of the
35,000 Chinamen flaunting their idolatrous
worship in San Francisco, and then di
gressed to tell a story about a wealthy lay
man of a California church who was over
conservative. He objected to the sinking
of the hymn, "Lead, Kindly Light," be
cause it was not in his hymnbook, and
upon being informed that it had been
sanctioned by the general convention, had
declared that the appropriation for the
hymn was unwarranted.
He furthermore declared that if the
hymn was sung again he would leave the
"Was it sung?" inquired a deputy, and
the house broke into an uncontrollable lit
of laughter. When he was able to pro
ceed Dr. Spalding said:
"The hymn was not sung. He was a
wealthy layman, and greatly interested in
Die church work."
Dr. Spalding went on to say that the
hymn was sung over the grave of the un
fortunate layman, ana the deputies
laughed louder than ever.

BICYCLES FOR ARMY USE
Military Wheelmen Discuss
Plans at Their National
Aims of the Association Strongly
Indorsed by Commander-ln-
NEW YORK, N. V., Oct. 16.— The first
annual convention of the United States
Military Wheelmen was held yesterday at
the Broadway Central Hotel. The organi
zation was established for the purpose of
uniting wheelmen who have a knowledge
of military drill into bodies of such size as
to test the practicability of moving large
bodies of troops with the bicycle. It is
also proposed that military wheelmen shall
voluntarily, for the purpose, submit to a
certain amount of discipline, so that their
wheeling excursions shall largely be tours
of experiment in utilizing the bicycle for
Captain McCrystal in his opening ad
dress said the purpose of the meeting was
to consider whether the bicycle could not
be put to some more practical use than
merely that of scorching along the roads.
"For several years past." he said, "mili
tary men all over the world had been
making tests with the wheel. In time of
war the one need is the ability to trans
port troops and land them where they
could deal a heavy blow. This could be
done more cheaply by bicycles than
President McCrystal then introduced
Major Giddings of the Connecticut Na
tional Guard. He said a company of mili
tary wheelmen in his State formerly car
cried carbines on their backs, but they
were discarded at the end of a year's trial,
and the men now carry only one Colt's re^
volver. Rifles he claimed were at a disaa^
vantage on account of weight and trouble
in handling while dismounting. In the
five years of use with the wheels many ex
periments have been made. Forced
marches have been made in heavy march
ing order. The longest march was sixty
miles, made in ten hours.
Major Giddings explained how a wounded
man was carried on a bicycle. He is
placed on a blanket astride the wheel in
front of the saddle, and reclines in the
arms of the rider.
The question of the proper weight of a
military bicycle was considered. Major
Giddings said the wheel now in use by his
corps weighed twenty-nine pounds. The
wheels were to be heavier next year. In
regard to the proper arms for bicyclists
Major Giddings said that he considered the
rifle too heavy, except for the signal corps,
scouts or messengers. He believed the
rifle could be carried on the right side of
the wheel with success, and did not think
they should be carried or. the men. He
did not favor having any weight on the
rider at all, except his revolver.
Sergeant Staubach said that the use of
the wheel was mainly for transportation,
and would not figure in an engagement.
For that reason he said the wheelmen
should be provided with the same arms as
foot-aoldiers. The convention then de
cided to postpone the discussion and con
sider the constitution.
General Miles was introduced and
trongly indorsed the aims of the associa
FOR BETTER MORALITY.
Papers Head Before the Purity Con
gress at lialtimore.
BALTIMORE, Md., Oct. 16.— The morn
ing session of the Purity Congress was
marked by a large attendance, and the
speakers were received with great enthus
iasm. Mrs. J. H. Kellogg, M.D., of Battle
Creek, read a paper on "Chastity and
Health." "Alcohol and Chastity" was
discussed by Dr. M. L. Hoi brook.
At the afternoon session "Causes of
Present-day Immorality and Suggestions
as to Practical Remedies," by B. O. Flower,
editor of the Arena of Boston, was read by
Mrs. Pauline W. Holmes of Baltimore.
Mr. Flower opposed the license system
and said that it had been demonstrated to
be a failure. He believed that the aboli
tion of drink would result in an uncon
ceivable diminution of immorality. He
condemned the guilty silence called
modesty, which withheld knowledge from
children instead of thoroughly instruct
ing tnem and warning them of the pitfalls
and dangers ahead.
Mrs. Mary A. Livermore of Boston was
introduced by President Powell as "the
Queen of American literature." She held
the attention of the immense audience
throughout her extemporaneous address in
behalf of the protection of women.

Whether Mrs. Cleveland will accompany
the President to Atlanta or not is alto

inclination is not to draw upon her reserve
strength and attend festivities just row
after the long and peaceful sojourn by the

rate and will be of such brief continuance
that crowding so much in so little time
would, they say, undoubtedly weary her,

she will hardly care to leave her country
home until the duties of the social season
call her forth in all her official prominence

RETURN OF PROSPERITY
Colorado's Growth Illustrated
by a Monster Pageant
PICTTJBESaTJE FLOATS IN LINE.
Memories of Early Days Recalled
by the Exhibits of the
DENVER, Colo., Oct. 16.— Colorado to
day celebrated the return of prosperous
times by giving a street parade called the
"Pageant of Progress," the opening event
of the three days' Festival of Mountain and
Plain. Twenty-five thousand visitors from
over the State arrived during the night
and early morning on special excursion
trains. The railroads exhausted their pas
senger equipment, and had to use some
boxcars to accommodate all who wanted
to come to Denver.
It was a delightfully warm Indian sum
mer day. The route of the parade was a
long one, and fully 100,000 people witnessed
the display. Governor Mclntire and his
staff, accompanied by Brigadier-General
Wheaton and staff of the Department of
the Colorado, reviewed the pageant from a
mammoth grand stand located on Broad
way, opposite to which a living flag com
posed of school children made a pictures
The pageant was designed to show the
progress made by Colorado and was an
historical review, beginning witn a float
representing prehistoric cliff-dwellers and
ending with a parade of school children
carrying flowers, fruit and grain in sheaves.
The moßt interesting portions of the pa
geant were the bands ot lite and Santa
Clara Indians on horseback, all decked in
their holiday attire of paint, feathers and
beaded buckskin suits. They were in
charge of Colonel Cooper, who has been
recently elected a member of their tribe,
and old Chief Savaro. A brass band from
the Teller Institute, a Government Indian
school, with a float exhibiting the handi
work of that school, showed what progres-s
the Indians have been making.
Following the Indians were the members
of the Colorado Pioneer Society in old
Concord stagecoaches and canvas-topped
wagons drawn by ox teams, mule teams
and old horses. At the head of this divi
sion rode old Jim Baker, the oldest trapper
and Indian scout now living, who crossed
the plains in 1838 with a party sent out by
the American Fur Company. In this divi
sion also were a number of gaudily attired
Mexican riders from Southern Colorado
headed by Senator Barela of Trinidad.
Floats representing a pioneer gambling
saloon, the first printing office in Denver,
the first church, the finding of gold on
Cherry Creek; floats showing mounted
wild animals, and beautiful allegorical
floats representing Colorado's mineral re
sources, added to the picturesque ness of
Cripple Creek contributed a number of
magnificent floats. The agricultural and
horticultural resources and the fruits of
irrigation were represented appropriately,
and the firms manufacturing Colorado ma
terials into useful products were out with
admirably executed floats. There were
twenty-five bands in the parade, including
the famous Cowboy band, now located in
After the parade had ended the floats
were taken to the city park where they
will remain as an outdoor State fair until
the festival ends. In the park also are the
camps of the Indians and the two regi
ments of the Colorado National Guards.
To-night a trolley musicale was given,
bands occupying ten brightly illuminated
cars which moved slowly through the busi
ness streets and stopped at stations desig
nated by the festival committee to give
open-air concerts to the crowds.
The second day's programme consists of
a military parade in the morning, with
the United States troops and cavalry from
Fort Logan and the two regiments of the
Colorado National Guards as the principal
features, and will include all military and
semi-military societies. In the afternoon
prize drills occur at the park and exhibi
tion drills by the United States troops.
