The T. M. C. A. has accepted the res
ignation of General Secretary N. W.
Woodford, to take effect March 1st, and
the IiepubUtan contains the following
concerning the differences of oplnien
between the directois of the association
aotl Mr. Woodford, which have led to
the severing of the relations:
The resignation came before the board
last evening and was accepted. Below
we give the letter of Secretary Wood
ford, with hU reasons for resigning:
Mr. J. 3. William. Km-reUry of the Y. M. C. A.
Baid. Dear Mir suil Br:
MoLlNR. Dec. 14, 1489 I hereby ten
der my resignation as general secretary
of the Toung Men's Christian association
of Moline, to lake effect on or before
March 1. 1SD0, as the board shall see fit
to grant It. N. W. Woodfold
P. 8. In justlo to myself and in ex
planation of the above, I wish to say tbat
I have no other field in view at present,
and that I have no personal grievance in
the matter, but I came "here to help the
aasociation to a definite work for young
men, and am convinced that the policy
of the board will prevent the hope of thla
success; tbat they are entirely out of the
line of the settled principles of associa
tion work as outlined by the inter
national and state committees,
and I have no hope of being able
to get tbetn to post themselves
upon and adopt these essential elements
of success, and therefore feel that it is
beat, for both myself and the association,
that 1 give place to a man who will either
fall In with their policy or bring them up
to the association work as outlined by its
most advanced lea-lers of long experience,
such as Bohert McBurncy and It. C.
Morse, of New York City, and our state
officers. Should the board desire I will
write these matters out In detail for their
consideration and for record, and eipect,
of course, to be faithful to every trust
while I remain. Yours truly,
N. W. Woodford.
The reasons are further specified as
1. A msnlfest desire on tbo part of the
board to make the building headquarters
for charitable and philanthropic enter
prises, to the detriment of special work
for young men.
2. riacing too much emphasis on the
"Resort feature,1 making the building a
playhouse, to the neglect of the christian
8. Too loose In organization, by not
requiring committees to properly report
4. Because the member of the board
will not bestitate to adopt measures
which csn b shown to have wrecked
many associations, and set aside as of
little consequence, and the advice of
tat and international officers.
5. The members of the board manifest
inconsistency in representing the most
important work to be christian, while
giving It little attention, thereby making
It much harder to reach and influence
8. They lay much work upon their
secretary which does not properly belong
te him. and give him but little encour
agement, thus preventing in Urge meas
ures, his chances for success.
7. Because, In falling to got the board
to see and remedy these things. I assume
my own large share of the blame, and.
Ilk Jonah, of old. "rise up ta flee," and
give place to a better man.

But this loss was a mere trifle in vie'V oi

A KINGDOM IN PERIL.
The Spanish Infant King's Illness Makes
the Situation Critical.
London, Jan. 11 Madrid was- kept in a
ferment of excitement all day Saturday by
repeated rumors of the young king's death.
Many believed that the monarch had really
passed away, and that the announcement ol
the fact was being concealed for state rea
sons. Such things are not unknown to his
tory, and if ever a government was justified
by the situation in hesitating to proclaim tlx
demise of a ruler, the present regime in
Spain is certainly in such a position. The
reports of hostile coalitions and plots are al
most too numerous to be counted and
Republicans Denying Charges.
The Republicans, though as a matter ol
fact they are lees active than the partisans
of Don Carlos, are bearing the brunt of gen
eral suspicion. An outrage committed upon
the passengers of a railway train having
been attributed to them, their leaders have
found it advisable to isxue a statement for
mally denying the truth of the charge, and
explaining that the perpetrators of the crime
were banditti, who, for some reason best
known to themselves probably out of sheer
malignity boasted that they were Republi
cans and that the offense was not an ordin
ary felony, but the outcome of a political
conspiracy. The affair, trivial in itself,
gives some indication of the restless and ap
prehensive state of the public mind in the
Trouble About the Succession.
On the part of the governmeut it is feared
that in the event of the death of the king
the sucoeawion of a female to the throne and
the extension of the regency will create an
agitation sufficiently violent to spur even
the most lethargic of the Republicans to ac
tion, in which they will he joined by the Re
publican malcontents of Portugal to the im
minent danger of both thrones. This feeling
is of course not admitted, but it exists never
theless, and the worst of it is there is no al
ternative to the succession of Princess Mer
cedes and the regency of her mother.
The Little King's Condition.
JTAt noon yesterilay the official bulle
tin stated that the king was progressing
favorably. His pulse was stronger, and bt
asked for food. He talked with his sisters
and seemed to be more cheerful. The Span
ish authorities on the frontier are exercising
the most stringent precautions to guard
against the entry into Spain of any exiles
from that country who have boon sojourning
in France. Regular passenger traffic is being
subjected to inconvenience and delay by
reaon of the measures adopted.
Belgium in a Bad Waj A Warning Pla
London, Jan. 13. It is being seriously
asked if Belgium is not fast drifting toward
anarchy, anil whether the government will
be able to restrain the desparate workmen
who every day give vent to their recklessness
by deedsof violence and acts of incendiarism.
To proclaim her workmen by calling for the
assistance of other powers would I a step
almost as fatal for the government as yield
ing to the strikers, but it is plain something
must be done. The morning after the de
struction by fire of the Bourse and theatre,
the police were busy tearing down placards,
some of which were printed w ith red ink
and signed "R, Tl", warning monarchs,
money dealers and usurers that their exist
ence and professions were offensive and in
sulting to an oppressed people in want of
the commonest necessaries of life, and that
palaces, money temples, and places of amuse
ment would be marked for destruction until
the cry of the masses for justice was heeded.
A Policeman's Head Crushed.
A policeman, while removing one of these
placards, had his beaA crushed by a stone,
and a crowd prevented the capture of his
assailant. Extraordinary vigilance is dis
played in Antwerp, where another conflagra
tion among the petroleum docks and ware
houses is greatly dreaded, and merchants
are complaining loudly of the extra outlay
to which they are subjected by the measure
of precaution adopted by the authorities.
WARNING TO AMERICAN GIRLS.
Don't Marry a Turk A Case That rolnts
Ixwdox, Jan. 11 American girls who
may think of marrying a Turk are hereby
warned. A year or so ago a Vienna girl

destitute. His father is endeavoring to
bring the errant husband to terms, but with
out much chance of success. The consul
general, who was a witness to this marriage
of Nusri Bey, did exactly the same himself
in Pesth, where he died last year, leaving
his wife and child not recognised as duly
married according to the Hungarian law.

by the. Well Several of Them To Court
Kansas Crrr, Jan. 13. A. W. Carpenter,
a young man from Chicago, just now so
journing in Kansas City, tells a story of
blighted hopes that, he believes, should
warn all young men contemplating matri
mony to beware. He has been jilted and be
intends to sue bis inamorata for damages.
Mr. Carpenter is a neat, gentlemanly look
ing person, who bas a blonde mustache and
blue eyes, wears a handsome diamond pin,
and on the whole appears to be prosperous in
all his undertakings save love. He is down
hearted and sad, and into his sadness has
crept a revengeful desire that is likely to
create an unpleasantness for the object of
his love and revenge. Saturday be told bis
harrowing tale to a reporter.
F.veythlng Looked Lovely.
It is as follows:
"I have been engaged in the fruit commis
sion business in Chicago for years. Two
years ago, through some lady friends, 1
formed the acquaintance of the daughter of
E. D. Smith, postmaster of Jewell City,
Kan. During the correspondence that fol
lowed we exchanged photos and became en
gaged to marry. When our engagement
was made known to her father he expressed
a desire (to know something more of mt
than be had heard and came to Chicago to
look up the history of my career. During
his stay in Chicago he dug deep into every
act of my life, and upon his return to Jewell
City wrote me tbat he approved of the en
gagement, and therefore sanctioned our in

"Our marriage was to have taken place last
week, and on the day named I, of course.
put in an appearance. Upon my arrival 1
found Miss Smith basking in the encourag
ing smiles of a youth who resides in that
town, and when I reminded her that it was
the day set for onr marriage she said she
was sorry it coulduT be, but she bad changed
ber mind, and didn't intend to marry me.
Perhaps you can iTnagine my feelings when 1
heard her say that. I had given her my
heart and unreserved love, and besides bad
fitted up a home for her in Chicago that I
knew would charm her. All my hopes that
I had builded up, the many pleasures and
the ambition of a life were wasted in tbat
moment, and it can hardly be wondered at
that I feel heartbroken over it.
O, Fair and False One.
"I found, upon investigation, that during
the period of her engagement she had not
deported herself in a manner that would in
dicate that her heart was given and ber hand
engaged, but, instead, encouraged numerous
lovers, who lavished presents upon her, all
of wh ich she accepted. When I realized that
she meant to put me off I became almost
frantic, but I had gone to a great expense
preparing to greet her as my wife and almost
everything I had in the world was put into
w hat was to have been our home.
Revenge Is Sweet.
"Then it was, w hen 1 calmly reviewed the
situation, that 1 concluded 1 was duped and
determined that I would defend myself
against such imposition. I secured the ser
vices of an attorney, to whoc I told my
story and received the assurance that I bad
a good case and could procure damages in the

Fight Victims of La Grippe.
Cuicaho, Jan. 13. The names of eight
additional victims of La Grippe were sent in
to the health department Saturday. Another
big increase of mortality was also reported,
the deaths for the last two days of last week
aggregating seventy -seven from pulmonary
diseases. Thore were more people
awaiting burial in town yesterday
than the hearses could decorously
carry to the graveyards. Eight bodies
were borne to cemeteries in carriagea. The
supply of hearses was exhausted early in the
morning. There were three deaths attrib
uted to la grippe during the twenty-four
hours ended at noon yesterday, and the fig
ures for the past seven days are 407 deaths,
202 of w hich were from pulmonary diseases.
This is an increase of 90 per cent, above the
same time last year.
Matters. of Interest In Congress.
Washington Crrr, Jan. 13. Interest in
the proceedings of congress this week will
center in two things the discussion of the
rules, which will probably occupy a great
portion of the time of the house of repre
sentatives, and the debate in the senate be
tween Senators Ingalls and Butler on the
race question. Both these senators will, if
possible, speak on the same day, and the
prospect for a lively debate is very good. The
issue will be on Butler's bill to provide
means of gett ing the negro out of American
politics by shipping him back to Africa if
he will go. There will, of course, be two re
ports to the bouse on the rules question, and
the wide difference of opinion between the
two parties w ill give rise, doubtless, to an
Stabbed Ills Rival to the Heart.
Chicago, Jan. 13. James Prendergast, a

subsequently arrested at the home of his
