The Final Iterlaioa by Judge Hamll
ten on the Eiat( Ileal Church Oiffi.
The press report sent out from Cleve
land, OUio, last Thursday in regard to tbe
decision rendered by Judge Hamilton in
the Evangelical church cane upon a mo
tion for a preliminary injunction, was
misleading. It will be remembered that
Judge Pleasants passed upon the case
last winter. In regard to the suspensions
of Bishops Bowman and Esher the court
held that it had co power to review tbe
judgments in those casts, and said that
the general conference, which will meet in
a few weeks, has finally to pass upon
their validity. The judge refused to ens
join the two bishops from serving on the
board of publication and the hoard of
missions the two leading c flkial church
boards and of one of which Bishop Eriier
is president and B shop Bowman vice
president; be also refused to decide which
faction of the Illinois conference was the
true conference, but said in this connec
tion: "I have come to the conclusion
that I ought not in this preliminary hear
mg to order the moaies in controversy be
tween the two parlies to be paid oyer to
one of them, especially when the fact are
in dispute and the general confeience, the
ultimate arbiter between all these parties
and one chosen by themselves will, in a
few weeks, undertake the task of adjust
ing their difference."
Th? court refused to grant the com
plainants, who represent the minority
party in tbe church, the relief sought by
them in every particular, except in the
matter ot the payment of the possible
deficiencies in in tbe salaries of the bish
ops, concerning which the court said:
"For the purpose of preserviug these
trust funds intact until the general con
ference can pass upon the validity of
these suspensions an injunction will
be granted enjoining the payment of
Under tbe rules of thu evangelical
church, governing the salaries of its
bishops, only a small part of it is paid
out of the general trust" funds of the
church treasury, and not until tbe next
general conference, which will convene
in October next at Iidianapo'.is, Cio it be
definitely ascertained whai, if any, defi
ciency is due tbe bishop. No appeal
can be taken by either side,
Kfrlcient Fire rv:ei.
Now that Rjck Island is to have a fire
department worthy of tbe name and ob
ject, the following from the Cticaso
Evening Post contains some suggestions
of interest to the general public and of
practical value to Chief Rimskill and the
fire and light committee of the city coun
cil, with whose consent be acts:
Just as the dreaded 4-11 alarm was
hurrying fire apparatus to the serious
down town blaze early this morning a
marshal's borse dashed across Adams
street bridge. The driver urged him on
and the brazen gong beat a lively tattoo
to clear tbe way. Leaning forward on
the seat, gazing anx'ously toward the
column cf smoke in the east, was a beard
ed, resolute looking man. It was Denis
J. Swenie. He had been called from his
bed and hsd paused oniy long enough to
slip on shoes, trousers, coat and hat.
The horse dashed on to State street and
the bearded man cleared the wheel in a
bound before the animal was pulled up.
From the sidewalk he surveyed the roar
ing furnace across the way, into which a
dozen streams of water were pourios.
Two or three chiefs of battalions" saw
their leader and approached him for
orders. He waved them off and still re
gardecnntently the burning building and
its surroundings. Then he hastily sum
moned bis aids one by one and gave
hurried directions to each. Away they
scampered, and in 10 minutes tbe fire ap
paratus was all changed about, the build
inzs adjoiniug the blazing pile were under
the protectiosr"of lines of hose, and what
at first promised to be a great conflagra
tion was confined to the one building in
whch the fire started.
Executive ability, good descipline and
intrepid bravery accomplished this splen
did work and once again demonstrated
the efficiency of Chicago's fire depart
ment. No such results could have
obtained with a body of men whose posi
tion depended upon political "pull" and
whose ranks were torn by petty jealousies
and internal strifes. ,

City Hall park the other day -with the
Etrings of one shoe flipping and flopping
about with every step she took. She
knew all about it, aud she realized that
every man she met was looking right at
that foot, but she hadn't the nerve to
stop and tie the strings. The situation
caught the ee of a small bootblack -who
crossed her path, and he did the right
thing at the right time and In the neat
est manner. Running up to her he
dropped on his knees and placed his box
for her foot. She placed it there, and he
gathered up the strings, deftly tied them
into a double bow knot and rose up and
doffed his cap and bowed like a little

A singular case of spontaneous com
bustion is reported where a painter en
gaged in a mill removed his overalls at tt
p.m. to go borne. At half-past 8 the
watchman, discovering smoke iu the mill,
summoned the eiigiueer, and together they
searched the premises carefully, tracing the
smoke to a small room in which the over
alls were discovered, aud in one pocket was
a bunch of greasy waste that bad ignited.
