Chaplain Charmes C McCabe and
and Dr. Earl Cranston were elected
to the Episcopal office (Bishop) by the
M. E. Church General Conference now
in session in Cleveland. They are both
. Ohio men, McCabe being a native of
-Athens county, and Cranston of Pike,
almost adjoining counties. The former
was in Libby Prison with Judge Sibley
and Rev. T. S. Armstong of the Ohio
Conference. His wonderful voice rang
through tho prison as he loved the cho
rus in spite of protests "We are com
ing Father Abraham, si's hundred
thousand strong." He has scarcely an
equal as a platform speaker. Dr.
Cranston is a man of fine culture, and
has chiefly distinguished himself as a
business man, being at the head of, the
.Methodist Book Concern at Cincinnati.
A Grand Stand Preacher.
Below is the way a minister of the
gospel of Cincinnati shows his Interest
in base ball, especially his home team,
the "Beds." The reverend gentleman
thus addresses an invitation to them to
attend services at his church:
Cincinnati, 0., May 10, 1S95.
"Ir, William Ewing, Captain of the
".Beds" Kind Sir: Will you do me the
kindness to extend f the Cincinnati
.Baseball Club my hearty invitation to
attend divine services at the First Bap
tist church, Wesley avenue, Lord's Day
evening, July 5? After having given
the o$her clubs a good trouncing by
that time, the boys will be in better
position to 'enter 'His gates with
thanksgiving, and into his courts with
praise.' I will deliver a sermon in
keeping with the professional life of
the players, and my congregation will
endeayor to make the services memor
able to the club, if l do not score a
lome run in the first inning you can
call me off the grounds (rostrum.) I
would suggest as a unique feature of
the service that Mr. Hoy give the
Lord's Prayer in the sign language,
thus showing to tne public that base
ball men have some religious bias. I
am very much in sympathy with Mr.
Hoy foi' the reason I had a brother who
was a mute. I am a great lover of the
frame for the reason there is no Ameri
can sport so honorable and so manly.
Give my highest regards to the players
and tell them to keep themselves right
morally and they will win the pen
dant "Yours very respectfully,
"Stephen- A. Norton, Pastor."

The committee on repairing the old

inthe'hands of an architect for esti

matter of the 25 per cent, limit on as

to the proposed sidewalk on Greene

found that only 25 per cent of the ap
praised value could be assessed and
that the balance, if any, would have to
be paid by the city. Mr. Rech stated
that the lots in 'question were not
listed at more than ?100 each, 25 per
cent, of which amount would fall far
short of being sufficient for tho neces
sary fill and pavement, leaving the city
to pay for a large portion of the im
provement. Upon motion of Mr. 'Ridge

was passed more than a year ago, a bill
