Shortest Sewloa of tho General Assembly
la Eight Tears.
Eagle Lake, Ind., May 23. The Pres
byterian general assembly, which ad
journed last night, was the shortest ses
sion in elghf years. In spite -f th de
sire to finish up Us business last right
there was little unusual haste-, and the
record of the debate on temperance In
the afternoon showed that it was ready
to defer adjournment. If necessary, in
order to attain a suitable and reasona
ble decision of the questions that re
mained to be decided. The proceedings
of the day were important, the final dis
appearance of the question of assembly
control of theological seminaries being
not the least significance of the assem
bly's general attitude.
The business done during the day may
be summarized as follows: Statement
in favor of the banishment of liquor
selling from government buildings, and
approval of every legitimate effort to
suppress the liquor traffic; third Sun
day of October set apart as temperance
day; the assembly laid on the table the
matter of the use of wine at the Prince
ton alumni banquet; a petition to allow
a colored church in Texas to Join an
Arkansas presbytery was decided in the
negative, because it tended to recognize
color distinctions In the church.

Cincinnati. May 29. The crowning
event of the visit of the commercial
club meetlns: here was tha hannnpt 1
last night at the Clifton mansion of
Alexander McDonald, who was host for
the Cincinnati club. The dinner waa
most befitting the dignity of such clubs.
IXMAJf 1. GAGS.
Owing to the necessity for a midnight
departure of the Boston guests the din
ner was served early. Luclen Wulsln.
president of the Cincinnati club, opened
the speaking with an address of wel
come. The first response was by Jerome
Jones, president of the Boston club.
Jones gave a sketch of the origin of the
Boston club twenty-nine years ago, and
spoke of the value of unity of action
by these organizations, especially in
supporting the credit of the government
and in maintaining inviolate the dignity
and power of the national treasury.
Secretary Gage was theprincipal speak
er among others of note.
Abnndant Rerenne and Sonnd Money.
He was vociferously applauded as he
rose to speak. He said in beginning his
remarks that before coming he had
called on the president and asked per
mission to say for the administration
that there must be proper revenue
raised and there must be a sound sys
tem of currency established. The pres
ident said "That is exactly what I want
you to say." He then proceeded: "The
chairman has asked me for a few words
and I shall not abuse his. confidence by
going into an address. As I have ob
served and listened to the words pass
ing from lip to lip among the mem
bers of the commercial clubs gathered
here I discover two particular themes
which have a first place in the thoughts
or all. These two themes are the tariff
and the public finances. Upon the set
tlement of these two questions enter
prise waits and industry languishes.
That First Question Is Tough.
"Over fifty times I have been asked
When will the tariff discussion end and
the measure proposed receive the final
vote which will formulate the measure
into law? Over fifty times more I have
been asked, 'Have the financial re
forms, for which the people struggled
in November last, been forgotten?
I have thought that oa this oc
casion I could do no better service than
to give you needed reassurance and
hope. As to the great fabric now before
congress, known as the tariff bill, I
have nothing to say in detaiL I want
to bear testimony, however, to the zeal
and good faith of those in both houses
who have that measure in charge.
CALUS FOB FAITH AND COURAGE.
Distrust Is Destroying Cntty, Dividing
vuuaea ana ureeaing Hatred.
rney are rully conscious of their
great responsibilities and are working
launruuy to aiscnarge tnem. Nor do I
think that the opponents of these meas
ures are likely to oppose with willful
and unjust obstructions the course of
legislation. Protest there will be; more
or less fencing for position must be ex
pected; but having come into contact
with many of the representatives of the
people in both houses of congress I deem
It my duty to bear witness, so far as it
may have value, to tbe honorable and
patriotic motives that inspire the minds
of the great majority, whether upon one
side or the house or the other; and I
prophesy an early result In the national
councils to which, this great commercial
question Is now committed.
"I make these remarks not to defend
a body for whom I hold no commission
to speak, but to correct in one direction.
If I may, tbe operation of an injurious
sentiment a sentiment which is sowing
evil seeds in many directions. It is di
viding classes, destroying unity and
breeding hatred. The one word for that
sentiment is 'distrust.' Faith and cour
age lead to conquest and victory. Dis
trust paralyzes and destroys.
"As to the financial question to which
I have already referred, I must content
myself with few words. I am glad that
they may be words of assurance. If any
of you harbor the suspicion that the ad
ministration but Just now installed Into
tbe responsibilities of high office has
forgotten, or is likely to forget, the man
date of the people whose voice in behalf
of sound money and sound finances rang
cut loud and clear in November last, put
that suspicion aside. It ia unjust and
unfounded. In good time and in proper
order the affirmative evidences of my
declaration will appear.
"In the meantime, my friends, do your
part to help those charged with legisla
tive and administrative duties. Do not
let the inertia engendered by fear and
distrust creep over you. We have been
passing through a period of great trial,
and nobly we have endured the strain.
Tbe future to not dark with forebodings,
it is ujumiKateji with rational booe.
The revival of Industry Is near, and
with the establishment of a revenue law
sufficient to bring Into the treasury an
amount adequate to meet the reasonable
needs of our government. And with the
establishment of our finances on a sound
and enduring basis, nothing now fore
seen can delay a new forward move
ment along the Cnes of material ad
vancement and social progress, which
we may humbly trust is in the benevo
lent mind of God to bestow upon the
American people." -
MICHIGAN SOLONS ARE DONE,
Adjournment W1U Taka Flare Monday
Pingree Crges Hallway Taxation.
Lansing, Mich., May 29. At midnight,
yesterday, amid great confusion, the
Michigan legislature ceased transacting
legislative business after nearly five
months' session. Many of the so-called
reform measures, fathered chiefly by
the political friends of Governor Pin
gree, were left In committees, together
with many bills of a more local charac
ter. The final formal adjournment will
be on Monday. Last night Governor
Pingree sent a final message to both
houses, urging the recall of the Merri-
man bill for increasing the taxation of
railroad earnings and the passage of a
substitute which shall be more ade
quate to accomplish the purpose In.
Accompanying the message was an
estimate of tbe state railroad commis
sioner, showing that the Increase in
taxes under the bill will be but $155,-
700. The governor also submitted a
brief which tends to show that the act
In question is illegal, being "an at
tempt to usurp the power of congress
to regulate and tax commerce among
the states and with Canada." The gov
ernor urged tbe . passage of aa act
against . which, at least, no legal ob
jections could be raised.- The senate
refused to take any action on the gov
ernor s message. Accordingly both
houses adjourned at midnight.

No letters are published without the

confidence is observed. The following
letter represents thousands :
" I always enjoyed gtrod health un
til six months before the birth of my
babe. Then I was very weak; my back
ached all the time. My physicians
said I would be all right after the birth
of the child, but I was not, although
at that time I had the best of care.
The pains in my back were almost un
bearable. I had leucorrboea in its
worst form; menstruations were pain
Any work or care would entirely
unnerve me. When my babe waa 11
months old, friends persuaded me to
take Lydia E. Pinkham's Vegetable
Compound. Before I had taken one
bottle I felt the effects. My back did
not ache so badly, and I felt stronger.
After taking four bottles I felt well.
My ambition returned, menstruations
were painless, lencorrhaea entirely
cured, and I could take care of my
babe and do my housework. I shall
alwaya recommend your Vegetable)
Compound for all women, especially
for young mothers. " Mb. B. I
