RATES 'FOR CLEnGYMEN.
A numberof tho eastern railroads haT
tag on January 1, 1895, changed theis
rules regarding the issue of reducec
rates to clergymen, and unauthorized
statements as to the reasons for making
the change having been published, con
siderable correspondence- between the
clergy und tho railroads has resulted.
The recent letter from Hon. Chauncey
M. Depow, President of the New York
Central, corrects certain erroneous im
presslons and states that company's po
sition in tho matter very clearly. The
letter is as follows:
New York Central and Hudson Elver Railroad
Co., Grand Central Depot.
New Voiik, January 19, 1805.
Jtiv. Ntaton J. Conllin and It. U. Slibbini,
D. D., Committee:
Gentlemen. I am in receipt of your
letter of January 15th, enclosing the
resolutions of tho "Presbyterian Minis
ters' Association of Rochester.
Tho rt solutions are based upon a
misapprehension of tho facts. The
press dispatch .announcing that tho
New York Central had withdrawn the
ministerial lialf-rato tickets "because
some of tho ministers had abused the
privilege, loaning their permits to un
authorized persons, and sometimes even
selling thera," was wholly unauthor
ized. No such information or notice
was given to tho pressor to anyone else
by any officer of this company. There
was also an Interview reported with me
on this subject, making similar, if not
more serious charges, but no such in
terview ever took place.
I deeply regret tho publicity which
was given to this matter and the dis
cussion which has grown out of it bo
fore wo had really arrived at what was
tho best policy for this company and
its associates in tho Trunk Line Asso
ciation to pursue. It had been devel
oped that very great abuses existed in
the issuance and use of tho so-called
ministerial ticket. It was nor. however,
tho fault of tho ministers. So far as I
can ascertain, no clergyman of any
church has been guilty of any impro
priety in tho uso of this privilege. Like
most departures from regular rules,
this ono led after awhile to serious de
moralization of passenger rates. Tho
privilege of tho ministerial order be
came extended to nil persons who had
ever been ordained ns clergymen,
whether they still had any charge or
performed any ministerial services or
not. Many who had gone into business
claimed and received the order. Then
it was extended to missionaries and
officers of tho Salvation Army, of the
Y. M. C. A., and of other religious or
semi-religious organizations. This ena
bled railway officials who desired to do
so to issue the half-rate ticket to almost
I am sorry to say that some railways
do not treat their agreements with each
other with the same sense of honorable
obligation which tho officers would ob
serve in their individual transactions.
Wo were amazed to discover that in or
der to increase their business without
apparently cutting the rates a few of
the roads placed the ministerial tickets
in scalpers' offices for sale. In this way
they came into tho hands of thegencral
public. It frequently occurred that
the conductor, when calling upon soma
passenger whom he did not think was
i minister to produce the ministerial
order which every clergyman carried,
was met by a flat refusal, simply be
;auso tho passenger was not a minis
ter, had no order nnd had rccoived or
purchased the ticket in some one of
Uie ways which I have described. Or,
tho conductor would find that under
the guise of a missionary or an officer
of one of these organizations he had re
ceived the order and ticket or else had
bought a ticket which some one who
could not bo vouched for asa. clergy
man with a charge had secured, and
thcnplaccd in a scalper's office for sale.
Of course the essential principle at tho
bottom of the relations between tho
railways and the public 5s that every
body shall be treated alike; that tho
railway faro shall bo like tho postago
of tho government, the samo to every
one who boards the train and becomes
a passenger between "the samo points.
Tho wisdom of tho proiibitlon of .dis
criminations in favor of ono person as
against another, or of one shipper as
against another, or of one locality as
against another, is now universally .ad
mitted, and is incorporated In the rail
Tho ministerial ticket was issued at
a reduced rate, not as an -act of charity,
as some have alleged, but becauso at
was believed that tho clergy and the
church performed an essential service
which was felt throughout tho vast em
ployment of these corporations.
Personally, I would be ivory glad if
tho privilege could l)o continued under
restrictions which would confine it
within legitimate bounds. You will see,
however, from tho exnlnnations which
I have given, how difficult problem

THE WEEK'S TRADE.
Obstacles That Are mocking the raths to
New York, Fob. 10. R. O. Dun &
Co.'s weekly teviow of trade savs:
Another week exports of gold from the treas
ury will have almost entirely stopped by the
contract for purchases of gold from Messrs.
Belmont and Morgan. For the moment busi
ness only waits to know whether sales of
American securities and withdrawals of gold
from the treasury have been lastingly stopped
by the remarkablo Increase of confidence.
The two obstacles which block the path Just
now are exceeding cficapness of farm products
and restricted operations In tho industries.
There has been no gain In the prices of farm
products on the whole; corn Is nominally M
cent higher, but with insignificant movement,
while wheat also, with a movement hardly halt
of last year's, is H of a cent lower for tho week,
Cotton, with continuing large receipts, remains
Fow words tell the old story: tho corn crop
Is undeniably short, although probably a much
larger supply than official reports indicate.
Wheat and cotton supplies at a so far behind
the world's demands that extreme low prices
are natural and any speculation tor advance .Is
greatly handicapped. Restricted purchases
by tho west and south naturally result.
Tho output of pig Iron February 1 was 167,201
tons against 1C8.414 week of January 1, but the
stocks remaining unsold were 718,073 tons
against Cl48 January 1, and indicate a de
crease of 16,137 tons In actual consumption
weekly during tho month of January. Tho so
vero storms in February have further entailed
production. Sales of steel rails were only IV)
tons in January, and the weather has arrested
structural work and retarded deliveries of all
kinds. I3ut there appears a better inquiry for
some finished products, especially In wire,
wire rods, nails and barbed wire, the business
is encouraging. Pig iron Is unchanged in price
hero and at tho west, though northern sales
are pressed and tho demand for bar iron is
about tho same. Lako copper is quoted at 075.
Continued dullness Is reported In cottons and
a reduction in prices by the Amoskeag mills
causes some hesitation. In tho main the works
are well employed, but with extremoly scanty
profits nnd considerable doubt whether the
market will bo found for accumulating stocks
of some Roods.
Trade In woolens is by no means satisfactory,
though fairly large In volume In medium and
low grades, but prices have been generally re
duced and competition with cheap foreign
goods is felt somewhat more. Sales of wool
continue within about a sixth of a week's nor
mal supply for eastern mills, amounting to 5,.
008,400 pounds, of which 3,595,000 were domestic.
Fine fleeco are not stronger and sales of Ohio
XX are quoted at WA cents.
Failures for tho week are S70 In tho United
States against 3:3 last year, and 51 in Canada

GERMANY FOR SILVER.
Resolution tn Call Monetary Conference
Introduced tn the ltelchntnc.
Hermn, Teb. 10. Count Von Mlr
bach, German conservative, introduced
a resolution In tho relehstag yesterday
Instructing tho federal governments of
Germany to issue invitations for an in
ternational monetary congress, to
take measures to bring about tho re
habilitation of silvenas a circulating
medium. Mirbach said that tho mo
ment had now arrived for Germany to
tako the initiative in settling this ques
tion, which is of great importance.
Bimetallism would cause the rise
of all prices in England, where gold
was the currency. Agriculture would bo
ruined If tho present system was main
tained. America would either absorb
Germany's gold, or adopt a pure silver
standard, and capture the whole east
ern trade. Other supporters of the
resolution indorsed tho position that
Germany had taken at tho Paris mone
tary conference In 18S3, namely, that
sho regarded an international agree

Narrow Escape of Children.
White Plains, N. Y., Feb. 10. Tho
West Chester temporary home on North
street, about 1 mile from tho court
house, was totally destroyed by fire
last night The building contained 00
children, ranging from 1 to 15 years of
age, besides a dozen teachers and
nurses. The fire originated from a de
fective flue. At that hour the little
ones were sound asleep. They were
awakened as quickly as possible and
hurried from the building. Most of
the children's wearing apparel was de
stroyed and they suffered intensely
from tho cold, but all escaped unin

Puzzled Over a 'Woman.
Fort Scott, Kan., Fob. 15. The
medical profession of .this city is quite
interested in a very extraordinary, caso
which came under its observation yes
terday. Mrs. Cal Packer, a woman
about 35 years of ago and mother of five
children, was less than five months ago
gored by a vicious bulL Her abdo
men was torn open by tho animal's
horns, and her bowels were lacerated
and fell out, making a ghastly expos
ure of tho stomach. She was alone In
n corral at the time, and walked unas
sisted to her home, fully 200 yards'
away. Tho wounds were sewn up by
thirty-six stitches, but sho was pro
nounced injured beyond recovery. Con
trary to expectations, she wholly recov
ered, and to-day, fourmonthsnndahalf
after the attack, she gave birth to twin
sons weighing nino and seven pounds
respectively. They are in perfect
health and tho mother will be able to
bo up in a few days. The extent of the
injury nnd tho woman's delicate condi

of the Elbe, who arrived hern yester
day, visited the county commissioner's
office in cpmpany with Commissioner
John Vevera, and both men wero at

Mr. Schlegel swears that about ' 0
o'clock on tho day of the hhipwreck ho
sawn uniformed oillcer of the btcam&hip

which the boy had been placed by his
father. The boy was placed on tho

Disastrous Itcsults of a Flro nt Lynn,
Lvnjt, Mass., Feb. 14. Fire broke
out about 8 o'clock last night in tho
llascment of n three-story wooden
building, occupied by W. Henry Hutch
inson, hardware, and bpread to adjoin
ing property, entailing a total loss of
S100.050. Three men wero killed, ten
injured and two are missing, supposed
to be burned in the ruins. The blaze
started near the paint room and prom
ised to do but slight damage for the
first half hour, during which the ef
forts of the Bremen confined it mostly
to tho basement and first floor
of the building. As tho con
flagration was in tho very heart
of the most dangerous district in
Lynn, a second and third alarm had
been rung in as a precaution. When
the fire had been burning half an hour,
without warning, a terrific explosion
occurred, which seemed to split the
building from bottom to top. The up
per stories separated and the long lad
ders, on which several firemen stood,
slipped nnd fell into the cavity and
the men wero hurled to tho pavement
beneath. Then thu building fell, a
mass of ruins, and with fresh energy
the flames began to spread.

Do You Wish
the Finest Bread
It is conceded that the Royal Baking Powder is
the purest and strongest of all the baking powders.
The purest baking powder makes the finest, sweet

der makes the lightest food.
That baking powder which is both purest and
strongest makes the most digestible and wholesome
Why should not every housekeeper avail herself
of the baking powder which will give her the best
food with the least trouble ?
Avoid all baking powders sold with a gift
or prize, or at a lower price than the Eoyal,
as they invariably contain alum, lime or sul
phuric acid, and render the food unwholesome.
Certain protection from alum baking powders can
be had by declining to accept any substitute for the
Royal, which is absolutely pure.
