Batimork, Oct., 7. The sx-cond day of
the triennial Protestcnt Episcopal conven
tion opened yesterdiiy with services in Em
manuel church, celebrated by Bishop Al
exander Burgess, of Quiney, Ills. The
two houses then went to their respc-ctive
chambers and proceeded to business. In
the house of deputies Alexander Cregg, of
Texas, proposed that the time of the meet
ing of the general convention be changed
from the first week in October to the first
week of September, as October is the most
Important part of the year to the clergy
and judges present at this convention.
After the announcement of the standing
committees the regular order of the day
the proposed changes in the prayer book
was taken up. It was under consideration
wIut t t'.p announcement was made that the
delegation from the Church of Canada
was at the door. The proceedings were
suspended whils preparations were made
for the reception of the delegation.
Personnel of the Delegation.
All in the convention arose as the visit
ing bishops moved slowly up the aisle,
Bishop Jones, of Newfoundland, leaning on
the arm of the venerable Bishop Williams,
the president of the house of bishops.
Bishop Tuttle, of Missouri, followed with
Bishop Kingdon, of Fredericton, and Bishop
Isaac 1. Nicholson, of Milwaukee, with
liishnri Hnmilfnii of 'Viju'urji Thpr worn
led to the stage and introduced to Dr. Dix, (
who in turn introduced them to the con-
vent ion. The dress of the bishops and!
clergy excited some curiosity. They wore
knee breeches, bright buckles, black stock-j
Ings, patent leather pumps, black frock !
coats, stocks, and lie-ribboned plug hats, j
The three bishops addressed the house in
Miccession, and were followed by the Rev. I

Work On the Prayer Rook.
Dr. Huntington, of New York, asked
permission to present the report of the '
joint committee on standard prayer lxxik.
This was quite a voluminous document, '
and has been circulated among the clergy, t
Jt will occasion a great deal of warm le-!
bate. The consideration of the report was '
postponed until Monday at 11 o'clock. !
Then the prayer book discussion was re- )
framed and coutinued throughout the day.
Fifty-two changes hnd feeisubmitted, fit- ,
teen of which were discussed. Twelve
were adopted and three rejected as a result
of the (lay's session. The house of deputies
wired President Harrison a resolution of
sympathy in the illness of Mrs. Harrison, i
Proreedlncrrt of the ItiHhop. j
Nearly the entire day was devoted by the
house of bishops to the consideration of the
proposed changes in the prayer look. The
question was finally disposed of by the
adoption of forty-six amendments and the
rejection of six. The latter were prayers
which were considered unnecessary. A
committee was apjiointed to investigate and
report their views on the advisability of
having Columbian celebration services in
the Episcopal churches.

The general meeting of the .Woman's
Auxiliary to the lonrd of missions of the

er, but none knocked at so many hearts.

Philadelphia, Oct. 7. The politician
are exercised over the new ballot which will
become operative at the general election.
Chairman Reeder, of the state committee,
has received information that the official
ballot ehosen by Secretary of the Common
wealth Harrity will le fifty-two inches long
by twenty-two inches wide, and in the three
columns will lie given the Republican,
Democratic, and the Prohibition, People's
and Socialistic-Babor tickets. The last

Not Paper K no ugh in the Country.
Charles H. Mullen, an extensive paper
manufacturer, says regarding the blanket
ballot : "There is not paper of that odd
size or enough paper to cut and print one
tenth of the ballots that will be required in
this state this fall, and you can say for me
that there is not product or stock enough
in the maarkets of America to allow such a
thing to be done.
Too Complicated for the Voter.
"It is a quest ion if all the mills in this
country were they to begin on the contract
today could turn out the paper needed for
such a job in time, and I am certain they
could not le printed." Both Democrats and
Republicans fear the blanket law will lie
too complicated for the average voter to
COMMISSIONER PECK'S CASE.
His Lawjrrr Makes an Argument on the
Issue on Trial.
Albany, Oct. 7. Again in the criminal
court of sessions was the Peck case de
layed yesterday. Labor Commissioner
Peck appeared in court with his lawyer,
Meegau, and Assistant District Attorney
Cohen appeared for the people. Meegan
made a long argument, but confined it
chiefly to the point that original data ol
tained for the purpose of compiling a pub
lic document were not to be considered as
public papers. The law simply gave to
Peck instructions to present au annual re
port. It did not tell him how to give it, or
give specific instructions to him to issue
The .T u die Sonich:t rv.zzled.
The original papers could not be consid
ered public property and therefore he filed
this demurrer against the indictment.
Cohen argued that it was evident that all
papers asked for under the seal of a public
oiliee were certainly public papers.
Judge Clute said Then, 1 understand,
the only question you here disagree on is
that these circulars were public records?
Cohen Yes. sir. If you decide that they
were not public records then we admit it
was no crime to destroy them.
Judge Clute I am not prepared to de
cide such an import-ant question of law on
the arguments presented and shall adjourn
the case until the lsth.
