But it's different with their, clothes.
They are mostly born without clothes.
Nearly all have clothes thrust upon
them when they are small, afterward
they have to achieve their clothes.
Some achieve good clothing and some
don't; it's owing to where they buy it.
Those who buv the London Clothing
Company's Clothing get the best. It is
easier, too, to achieve the London Com

RAISED A EUMPUS.
Quite a Breeze in the Ecumeni
EE. LEONARD'S POINT OF ORDER.
It Never VTu Stated, but Caused tha
Brethren to Do a Good Veal of "Hack
Talking" The Papacy Discussed and
Generally Condemned Opinions on tlie
Liquor Traffic Show Strong Prohibi
tion Tendency Doings of the Ameri
can Board or Blissions.
Washington, Oct. 13 There was quit
rumpus in the Methodist ecumenical
conference yesterday, precipitated by a
rbling of the chair, which Dr. Leonard, of
Sew ork, refused for some time to sub
mit to. The question up was Methodist
federation, which was advocated by Dr.
McLaren and Mr. Kennedy, of Canada,
and Dr. Abererombie, of England, the
latter regretting that there should be op
position to the movement in favor of
unity and quoting the lines:
"Into a world of ruffians sent,
I walk on hostile ground."
The conference did not like the implica
tion in this poetry, and Dr. Leonard in
sisted on recognition, alleging that he
rose to a point of order, although the
chair had awarded the floor to Dr. King,
Wouldn't Be Put Down.
Dr. Leonard continued to insist on be
ing heard in spite of the comments on
his conduct made by several of the dele
gates, and of the appeals of the chairman,
who advised Leonard to real the rule,
when he would see his error. Many un
complimentary remarks were exchanged
by the brethren, and the scene was one
of confusion and excitement. Dr. Leonard
forced his way to the front, exclaiming:
"Mr. Chairman! Mr. Chairman 1" while an
English delegate said that if Leonard per
sisted in his conduct he shonld bo sus
pended and an Irish delegate tried to get
the floor to move suspension.
Dr. Leonard Finally Subsides.
At last Dr. Hughes, of England, mado
himself heard, and said that having
regard to the credit of a great assembly
like this, on which the eyes of the whole j
world were resting. Dr. Leouard should
bring himself to obey the chair. If he
had anything to say on the subject he
will Id have the opportunity later on. "I
bef Dr. Leonard not to brine the whole
asjjpnibly into contempt 1" cried Dr.
Hitches. Other gentlemen sustained the
chair, and Leonard abandoned his effort.
whereupon order reigned once more. Dr.
King moved to post Done the federation
matter for the day, and the motion was
Discussed "Romanism and Rum."
The rest of the morning was occupied in
a discussion of the Roman Catholic church,
the general tendency of the remarks being
that the influence of Rome bad been evil,
especially the influence of the papacy. The
liquor question was taken up in the after
noon. Kev. K. U. Mahon, of Memphis,
said that the annual cost of liquor to
the people of the United States was $!K),-
OIXIOUO, or f 14 50 per capita, and it exceeded
the cost of both meat and bread. The
church to be silent against the liquor traf
fic would break her trust, and the fact
that liquor is protected by civil power
does not release the church from her work
against it, and it is none the less sinful
because it is lawful in the eyes of the
Saloons Potent Allies of the Devil.
The saloons, he said, were unknown in
primitive times and now they are potent
allies of the devil. The manufacture and
sale of liquor as a beverage stands direct
ly against the kingdom of God. while
the church should observe prohibition it
should not get into politics, as politics be
longs to society at large, and the church
has nothing to do with legal prohibition;
let her aim be her holy work. Men sold
liquor, not to make men drunk, but for
gain, and they are willing to make money
at the risk of human sduIs. The duty of
thechurcb.he said, was to denounce the liq
or truffle, to set an example by their total
abstinence and to work against this great
vice of modern times.
Believers in Prohibition.
The other speakers were for legal prohi
bition. Kev. Worthington, of England,
said the state should not place temptation
in the way of those the church tried to re
form. Rev. Phillip, of the A. M. E.
church, declared it to be the duty of the
government to prohibit the traffic. He
also spoLe for international prohibition.
Kev. Jamer Pickett, of England, said the
staie should annihilate the business. Bish
op taines, of Georgia, A. M. E. church,
deojared a political party necessary to
suppress the liquor traffic. It could only
be abolished as slavery was, by a party.
Rev. Lambley.of Oneida, N. Y., remarked
that every Christian preached against liq
uor, but would go and vote for his party
candidate irrespective of his id?as on pro
hibition. Several other short addreeses
were made, and the session adjourned.
VOLUNTEERED AS MISSIONARIES.
Fifteen Young Men Offer to Preach to

PlTTSFlELD, Mass., Oct. 16. After sev
eral addresses at the meeting of the Amer
ican Board of Foreign Missions yesterday.
Secretary Alden called for young men to
volunteer for foreign work. Fifteen came

Dr. Storrs then briefly addressed the vol
unteers. President Storrs nominated

with him on the committee to ask our

Eturtevant, of Galesburg, Ilia , and E. H.
Pitkin, of Kidgeland, Ills. Although Dr.
fcterrs had earnestly requested that some
one else be elected president, his request
waa refused and he was re-elelected, and
upon appearing waa received with great
eothusi&m. He made a speech in which
he urged tnac cne senate oi me
United States be petitioned to unite with
European powers in suppressing the
traffic in slaves and in intoxicating liq

posed of bis holdings at the same time.
The investigating committee and the
