ALL NOT FOR UNITY.
Defeat of the Proposed
Plan to Admit More
Disposal of a Subject That
Has Caused Contention
dr. huntington is defiant.
In a Dramatic Manner He De
clares That the Measure
MINNEAPOLIS, Mikk., Oct. 17.— 1t was
a signal victory that was won this evening
by the conservative element in the house
Of deputies of tbe Episcopal convention.
The vote was close so far as the clericals
were concerned, but decisive on the side of
the laymen. The Lambeth quadrilateral, j
- ussed m every aspect |
by the church on both sides of the At- I
the past three years, and
which has proven a sore subject of conten- j
tween the narrow and broad church
■ - of the American church, was scat
tered to the winds, and the question of
• in unity was declared by the result
as being outside the pale of the considera
tion of the church. The ballot, which j
was taken at (> o'clock amid more cvi- i
deuces of suppressed excitement than have |
been manif. sted at any previous session of j
the convention, was the culmination of a
brilliant debate, in which the parlia
mentarians, tacticians and orators of the
body exhausted all their arts in the effort
to win votes. The minority, which U}. to ;
a late hour in the debate Had calculated
on a b:;re majority in its favor, died hard, I
and the scene during the closing speech of !
Huntington of New York, as with out- j
stretched arm and quivering forefinger
and every fiber of nis frame trembling !
with excitement, lie fairly hurled at the !
majority the exclamation: "You may de
■ asure, but you cannot kill it,
no, you cannot kill it: it is written in the :
God," was intensely dramatic
T. 1 is was the final vote on Dr. 11 .
ton's report, the minority document having
been withdrawn to enable a square vote on j
a square issue: Clericals— aye 19, no 2."5,
divided 11; laymen— aye 15, no 27, di
Of the clericals the dioceses of California,
Indiana, lowa, t^t-ur^ia, Louisiana. Massa- i
■- Mississippi, Pennsylvania, Pitts
burg, Southern Ohio and Western Michi
gan voted with l»r. Huntington, New York
Ohio, :-•"•' it h Carolina and Massachusetts
being divided. Ot the lay vote Massachu
and Pennsylvania were divided, and
New York, New Jersey. Rhode Island.
Maryland, Boi th Carolina and Southern
Ohio were among the dioceses in support
of tiie proposition.
Debare was resumed immediately after
the routine business of the opening hour
had been disposed of, the pending ques
i :i being the report of the majority of
1 > r. Huntington'a committee, admitting to
the oversight of the church otner Chris
tian bodies willing to accept the Apostles'
and Niocene creeds, and to submit
themselves to the authority of an
>; al Bishop who should pre
scribe the form of service such body
might employ. The venerable Dr.
Frederick S. ,!cwell of Milwaukee led the
with a fiery speech, which Dr.
ir of Philadelphia subsequently
characterized as the most powerful
arraignment of the Lambeth conference
that has yet been made. He denied that
there were any laree bodies ot Christians
knocking at the door of the Episcopal
church for admission, insisted that it was !
i aliow to people outside of the
church rights and privileges that have
always been denied to tbeirown communi
cants, and suggested that the scheme was
one of wheels within wheels and which
gave to individual Bishops power? that
they would not confer collectively upon
their House of Bishops.
I>r. McKim of Maryland said that three
years ago the general convention adopted
.mibetli platform as its own, and con
ey demanded that this proposition or
another like it be approved or the previous I
i be rescinded. They were called j
ro take a step toward true catholicity
— toward the genius of catholicity. It was
a movement in the interest of Christian
unity, and the church could afford to take
the lirst step as an object lesson to the
•whole Christian people, and which would
ultimately end in the present divided
stream of denominations Mowing unitedly
toward the true Catholic church.
Instances of Swedish congregations
identifying themselves with the church in
Minnesota, as contemplated by the pro
. canon, were cited by Rev. W. Nich
ols of this city, who made a Dlea for a true
American catholicity, and appealed to the
convent; on to have the courage of ecclesi
1 >■. f^eorce M. Christian of Newark, N. J.,
Asked if the convention was prepared to
make every individual Bishop of the
Church the sole interpreter of the liturgy
of the church at large or even of his own
diocese, and there was a thunder of "noes."
Let them lay down the law that all who
come into the church must accept the
prayer-book, cover to cover, and let them
hesitate before they take a step that would
be fatal to the church's interest.
James B. Kiddle of Philadelphia, in a
brief address, covered the majority report
with ridicule. Amid murmurs of appro
bation he said that they had had enough
of the Lambeth conference. It had done
no good ; it had done the cause of Chris
tian unity no uood. Anglomania per
vaded the American church to alto
gether too large an extent, and it ought to
be driven out. The time had not yet
arrived when this church was prepared to
onen its doors to every little church that
had a little row of its own. Such people
were not desirable. The entire proposition
savored of a hole and corner business; it
was a dark and dismal dream, a nightmare
to be dreaded.
Dr. Rhodes of Southern Ohio spoke in
Favor of unity, and Mr, Fairbanks against,
and after Drs. Fronde and Huntington
had closed for their respective sides the
ballot was taken. When the result was
announced the victorious element ex-
Shanged congratulations, while Dr. Hunt
.upton was surrounded by his friends, who
irged him to continue to stand by the
The Houses of Bishops and Deputies
Met in joint session at noon to consider
the subject of Christian education. As
sistant Bishop ("Jailor of Tennessee read the >
report of the joint committee on Christian
education, which after recognizing the
growth of sentiment in favor of Christian
education, and stating the general grounds
on which such education is urged, recom- |
mended an energetic and systematic work
in the Sunday-schools. The needs of the i
lower schools were presented by Rev. Dr.
Robert Doherty of Omaha, who thought that
the church should adopt some general plan
of educational work whereby the secondary
schools and the colleges might be brought
into closer and more intimate relations,
lie also urged the needs of a church college
A resolution came in at the end of the j
meeting from Dr. Fulton. It recom
mended that the board of regents con
sider the question of uniting all the divin
ity schools into a theological university in
connection with the general theological
seminary. The resolution was adopted j
and the meeting adjourned.
The House of Bishops nominated Rev.
Peter Trimble of Saulte Ste Marie, Mich., I
as a candidate for the new bishopric of
Alaska, and Rev. Joseph M. Francis of
Japan, formerly of this State, as mission
ary Bishop of Kyoto. It also approved
the resolution of the House of Deputies

stance of Rev. Dr. Spalding of California
providing that collections be taken up on
one Sunday of each year for an indigent
At 8:30 o'clock to-night the houses of !
Bishops and Deputies met in joint session j
as the general missionary board, with
Bishop Doane of Albany presiding. A j
lengthy report on the women's auxiliaries, '
junior auxiliaries and Order of Deacon- j
esses was presented by Deputy Whittaker j
of Pennsylvania, who laid stress upon the
fact that the women's auxiliary had given
$1,000,000 to the cause and deserved the
support of the Bishops and the church at
large. The following resolution was

On the consideration of colored work in

candidates claim the victory for their in
dividual men, and at the present time it
■would seem that the chances of Lawson
(D.), Wilson (R.), Steinman (Ind. D.) and
Hubbard (Citizens' party) are nearly equal.
Hnbbard being the standard-bearer of
the Citizens' party, backed as he is by the
American Protective Association, who are
making a personal house-to-house canvass
in his favor, is supposed to be developing a
strength which is difficult to estimate and
may be hard to overcome.
Steinman's friends are simply standing
by him shoulder to shoulder, and are
fighting hard to increase his strength in
all quarters. It is said that he possesses
the backing of the entire Police Depart
ment and their friends, the employes of
the city cemetery, the Fire Department,
the city water works and the gas com
pany's employes, while it is claimed that
he has many friends in the machine-shops
of ttie Southern Pacific Railroad Company.
Wilson, the Republican nominee, it is
claimed will receive the bulk of the rail
road-shop vote and will draw largely on the
Catholic portion of tbe community, who are
exhibiting considerable anxiety as to the
figure which Hubbard will cut at the polls.
In fact, both the Republican and Inde
pendent candidates are also betraying
anxiety to learn the progress of the unique
campaign being prosecuted by the Citizens'
Wilson also possesses the backing of
most of the political bosses, who seem to
have united their forces in favor of the en
tire Republican ticket.
Frank Rhoads. who for thirty years has
demonstrated his ability to land the nomi
nees of the Republican party in their de
sired positions, has again assumed the
leadership, and claims that he is confident
of party success all along the line, with
Wilson at the head.
The first really important victory
achieved by the "Little Napoleon," as he
is called, was in what has long been known
as the "Spittoon" convention, held in 1865,
when he assumed the reins of control over
the local Republican factions.
In 1872 when Newton Booth was nomi
nated for the gubernatorial chair, Rhoads
fully demonstrated his political general
ship by engineering Booth's nomination
and subsequent election. Since that time
he has been a boss and manager of State,
county and city politics and has been a
member of the Republican State Central
Committee for nearly twenty years. He
also handled Leland Stanford's interests
and is accredited with having materially
assisted in successfully conducting his
In 1893 a split occurred between the
"Little Napoleon" and the railroad com
pany. The latter having slated J. Brusie
for the Senate, desired Rhoads to forward
his interests, but -having already pledged
himself to E. C. Hart for that position
Rhoads rf fused to accede to their demands
and in the ensuing fight triumphantly
elected his chosen candidate.
In addition to his work as a politician,
Rhoads owns an interest in a saloon and a
faro bank. He is credited with affording
"protection" to the game, which runs al
most the year round, only letting up for a
brief period during the session of each
Grand Jury. Rhoads is one of the best
organizers in the State. He is a pictu
resque character in local and State politics,
by many being regarded as the "Buckley
of Sacramento." Like the blind boss of
| San Francisco, he never aspires to any
political position beyond membershiD in
the central committee, but is content to
push his favorites to the front and take
chances, like the "dead game sport" that
he is, or playing even after the light has

SEATTLE, Wash., Oct. 17.— The main
slope of the Oregon Improvement Com
pany's mines at Franklin, in this county,
is on fire and at least three men are sup
posed to have perished. The fire has been
raging since about noon, and great volumes
of smoke and flame are belching forth
through the mouth of the mine. Details
thus far are meager, news of the disaster
having reached this city late this after
The fire broke out between the fifth and
sixth levels and in a few minutes was
burning fiercely. Forty or fifty men at
work within made a rush for liberty, and
it is believed that all escaped save three.
The telephone wires running into the
mine were burned, suddenly cutting off
all communication with the imprisoned
The scene which followed the report of
another disaster in the mine where so
many tragedies iiave occurred was one of
almost unparalleled excitement. Mine
Superintendent Corey left Seattle on a
special train at 3 o'clock for Franklin.
By an explosion in the same mine in
August, 1894, thirty-six men were killed.
More than that number had a most mi
rr-culous escape from death to-day.
Reports received at 10:30 o'clock to-night
from Franklin are to the effect that four
persons instead of three are certainly dead,
though their bodies have not been found.
They were: John Glover. T. W. Smalley,
John Adams and James Stafford, constitu
ting the rescue party. They went down in
a hoisting stope and it is supposed they
never reached bottom.
It was their purpose to close the door
between the main and auxiliary stope of
the sixth level in order to supply their
comrades at work fighting fire on the sev

started at about 8 o'clock this morning by
August Johnson dropping his lamp, ig

night, but Superintendent Corry thinks

SAN DIEGG, Cal., Oct. 17.— The most
satisfactory account yet received of the
preat storm and flood on the western
coast of Mexico was obtained to-day at
Ensenada from Captain J. yon Helms and
passengers of the steamer Willamette
Valley. The steamer arrived to-day and
sailed this evening for San Francisco. She
sailed froniGuaymas on the Bth inst., but
stopped at Altata on the 9th, and there
particulars were obtained of the fearful
devastation in the interior along Humaya
and Tamaznia rivers, and including the
city of Culiacan, capital of Sinaloa. Cap
tain yon Helms said:
"vVe thought we had heard of the worst
of the storm at La Paz and San Jose Del
Cabo, but vastly more property was
destroyed on the mainland in the region
of Altata and Culiacan. We reached
Altata on the 9th and beheld the fearful
scenes of destruction and suffering. It
made my heart bleed to see family after

"Some of the leading men of Altata esti
mated t!ie loss in that section along the
Humaya and Tamazula rivers to be about
$700,000, but this I believe is not adequate.
It will take years for that conntry to re
cover from the fearful hurricane and
From Captain yon Helms and several
Mexican passengers on the Willamette
Valley the following details of the great
storm were learned: At La Paz forty ves
sels were driven upon the beach and
twenty-one are a complete loss. The
American schooner Czar, loaded with mer
chandise and dynamite for the Progreso
Mining Company at El Triunfo, is on the
beach and badly damaged.
A total of 184 houses were swept away
and a man, w^man and boy were drowned.
Francisco Dea Gonzales, a well-known cit
izen of La Paz, was carried down by the
river, but was 3aved by Felipe Manriquez,
who swam out and drew Gonzales from
the tremendous current.
Joseph Lopez is one of the heaviest
losers, has'ing lost several houses and a
large store. His safe, containing $7000,
was washed down the river, but was re
covered the next day. The Governor,
Colonel Rafael Martinez, has extended all
aid possible to the victims, assisted by the
Sociedad Philantropid and by Miguel
Gonznles, merchant and capitalist, who
has given relief to scores by donating?
houses and provisions.
The little town of San Pedro on the
peninsula was entirely swept away, though
no lives were lost. At Palo Alto ranch,
near San Pedro, a house and land were
carried into the sea and two children
drowned. The mother and daughter were
saved. The father looked on and saw his
children drowned and was unable to help
them. At the mining camp of El Triunfo
houses were carried away by the wind and
several people hurt.
At San Jose del Cabo the Santa Anita
River carried away nine miles of orchards
and sugar cane plantations, and the Wil
lamette Valley, passing that portion of the
coast on the return trip, sailed through a
sea of sugar cane washed out by the river.
Harrowing stories of suffering and star
vation were reported from San Jose del
Cabo, Todoes, Santos Cabo, San l#uis, San
Pedro and other little towns on the end of
At Altata, on the mainland, the people
reported that the storm began on the
morning of October 1, speedily growing
into a hurricane. On October 2at noon,
with the wind from the south and south
east, the storm reached a terriric force, and
the sea entered the lower streets of the
town, covering the plaza.
At Aranzubias the steamer Diego ran on
the bar and was seriously injured and
freicht sacrificed. The steamer was in the
lee of Venado Island during the height of
the storm in company with the steamer
Romero Rebio, but ran aground at Altata
and broke her rudder post and suffered
other damage. The schooner Cometa ran
on the rocks at Alturmura Island, and is a
The railroad and telegraphic communi
cation between Altata and Culiacan was
destroyed by the storm and Bebelama
bridge was carried away. Trains stop at
Navolato and Cofradia. The scene at
Altataduring the height of the storm was
described as terrible. House after house
was washed away and the roofs of others
were raised by the hurricane and dashed
into the streets. The sea was lashed into
a fury and the breakers dashing against
the wharf finally demolished that struc
ture, scattering the debris all along the
beach and carrying it to sea. The sea out
side of Altata was full of timber, coming
from the houses at that town and trom the
Culiacan River, indicating that great dam
age had resulted in the interior.
Piaxtla, San Ignacio, Sinalo, Fuerte and
Culiacan rivers were flowing great yellow
floods into the sea when the steamer
passed that coast, and in all were masses
of debris, trees, timbers, sugar cane and
Mayor To vela at Altata organized a re
lief corps and is doing all he can to aid the
sufferers. Twenty houses were lost and
fifty to seventy-five families are homeless
and suffering. No lives were reported lost
at Altata. but one woman was found
drowned at Navolato, and a child at Mo
holo. Several entire families are missing
from Navolato and searching parties have
been in the woods since the storm.
Two cables were rescued from the top of
high trees by canoemen, indicating the
immense height of the flood. Word was
received from Culiacan just before the
steamer sailed from Atlanta, a courier
having crossed the gap in the railroad be
tween Navolato ana Cofradia by swimming
the river at Bebetama bridge. He brought
the most disheartening news from the city
of Culiacan and the towns of Aguaruto,
Llebabito, Tamazuk, Bachigualato. Ota
meto and Bachimeto.
On October 1 and 2 tie storm struct
Culiacan and the Huraaya and Tamazula !
irivers, emptying into Culiacan River, rap
dly grew into torrents, sweeping away
125 houses in the lower part of Culiacan.
The families thus rendered homeless took
refuge in the Courthouse and San Carios
Hotel, but great suffering could not be
prevented and innumerable cases of ■
famine and exposure reached Culiacan
from the surrounding country.
The Culiacan water-works, situated near
the river, was covered with debris and
water is now being delivered on burros.
No attempt had been made at Culiacan to j
figure up the losses in the city, and the J
losses to ranch property, sugar planta- \
tions, cattle, etc., could only be guessed.
The sugar refinery and plantation at !
Lastancas were carried away, rich soil
being replaced by hills of sand. The loss
was estimated at $20,000. Several refineries
and ranches at Navolato and Primavera
were lost, the total loss in that neighbor
hood in the sugar industry alone being
$50,000 to $100,000. Alberto de la Vega lost
cattle valued at $4000 on Isleta ranch, and
Julian Montijos' loss of cattle there was
$3000. Property on Hacienda Mocurini was
lost to the value of $4000.
All the property of Rosas brothers, in
cattle, sugar plantations and other crops
was swept away. Their loss is about $75,
--000, and they have nothing left. Gabriel
Lagartijo lost a fine plantation and all his
cattle. The total value is about $14,000.
Mendosa, Rosario, Moreno, Gonzalez,
Tlalco, Rivera Hern&anos, Benemerito and
other plantations along Humaya River
were practically destroyed. It was re
ported that the entire village of Descansa
dero and twenty people were lost.
All plantations and orchards for 100
miles along Humaya and Tamazula rivers
were injured and most of them carried
away. Merchants of Culiacan figured up
losses as well as they could from reports
coming in, and placed the figure, in round
numbers, including ranch property, sugar
plantations, cattle, etc., at $700,000. This
was based only on reports received up to
The Tamazula River was reported to
have risen fifteen feet in sixteen hours.

Mining at Auburn.
AUBURN, Cal., Oct. 17.— Mining is
looking up every day In this locality.
The purchasing by Harold Power, super
intendent of the famous Hidden Treasure,
of an interest in the Gaylord mine near
Auburn recently has added new life to that
claim. Report conies to-day of a rich
strike of gravel in the Gray Ea<rle mine at
Forest Hill. The report says the gravel
averages $100 to the car.
If your boy will spare a few minutes to-day and come
down and call upon the great wholesale makers of cloth-
ing, who sell to you at retail at wholesale prices, we will
show him how he can, with very little exertion, earn for
himself a bank account for $100, $75 or $50.
The boy will not be asked to buy anything ; he has
simply to inquire how to get a bank account, and we will
explain it to him in a very few words.
By dealing with us you save at least one-half on the
cost of your purchase.
