"We have been at our wits' end how to sav?
onr church The embarrasrreut arises
through no fault of ours The story in a
nutshell si that years ago we built a ?arg
church. The next year w eDlargea it .at
almost the expense o a new church. Just
as we are getting it r-md for it burned
down Then we built a new curch. Just
as we were getting it pcid for the lightning
put an end to it.
Reached the Limit Without Help.
"We thee built this church, which is
practically the fourth church, counting
the enlargement referred to as a new
building. We have raised during my pas
torate l,C4G.(kt for religious purposes.
But nc churcti on earth could endure with
out serious embarrassment what we have
Veen called cu to go through, and we must
have help ot stop. Our ccngregation is go

onr people will exert themselves. Tne

that I know not how sufficiently to thank
them for." Dr. Talmage also stated that

MADE A GHASTLY SHIPMENT.
Bodies of Five Men and Three Women
Packed in Barret.
LOUISVILLE, March 16. Eight human
bodies packed in four barrels was n ghastly
discovery made by a freight handler of the
Newport News and Mississippi Valley
freight station yesterday. Five of them
were the remains of men and the other
three of women. Whether there is any
criminality attached to the matter or
whether the bodies were intended for dis
section by medical students is not known.
How the Discovery Was Made.
The shipment was made by a man giving
his name as W. T. G weens, of whom noth
ing more has been heard. While the freight
handlet s were moving the barrels the head
of one of them fell out and disclosed i.s
horrid contents. The bodies were cut to
pieces and officers believe that they were
intended for dissection. It has been
suggested that the stranger is a dealer in
that kind of ghoulish goods and being un
able to dispose of the bodies here intended
to ship them where he could hold them
without fear of discovery.
Was a Students Fake
LATER. The above story was a students'
"fake," sent broadcast by an excited re

NOT A DEAD ISSUE.
The Open Sunday Question at
the World's Fair.
EEVIVED BY AN ACT OF CONGEESS.
That Rale n the Souvenir Coins to Pay
Expense of the Awards Asserted to
Have Violated a Contract A Claim
That tha Last Art NulIiBcs the First
and Releases the Directory from the
Sunday Closing Condition.
CHICAGO, March 16. The opening of the
World's fair on Sunday has suddenly be
come a live issue. Those who believed
that the campaign for a seven-day fair
ended when congress refused to repeal the
condition attached to the appropriation of
(2,500,000 in souveniar coins did not look
far enough ahead to see the effect of an
amendment grafted oa the original ap
propriation in the closing hours of con
gress. Thi amendment took from the
sum voted by a previous session of con
gress $;-7C,S30 and declared that the expo
sition managers should use the sum to
meet the expenses of the committee that is
to make awards and bestow medals to ex
hibitors at the fair.
Carlisle Will Hold It Back.
The secretary cf the treasury was di
rected to hold ia the E hiladelphia mint
1. 141,!0U souvenir half dollars, or $5T0,S00,
until the Chicago directors gave a bond
that they would pay the expenses of the
awards committee. There were those in
the board of directors who promptly an
nounced their opposition to obeying the
law, apparently losing sight of the fact
that they could uot compel Secretary Car
iisie to pay ever the money that congress
ordered him to hold. These directors
claimed that congress had voted 5,000,000
souvenir half dollars for a particular pur
rose and could not divert the fund to other
t digress Breaks Its Own Contract.
Others said that by paying over the sum
reeded for the awards committee the Sun
cay clos;r.g law would be nullified, be
cause the contract made between the gov
ernment "and the exposition company,
which agreed to shut the gates on Sunday
for 5.(Xt,000 pieces of silver, had been bro
ker, by the later law of congress. Tl.e
lviard of control of the national commis
sion met yesterday. .Judge Massey, Gen
eral St. CUiir, Judge Martindale, and Rob
ert L.. Saunders, o' Mississippi, were pro
sent. Judge lartintl:tle'A Resolution.
Judge Ma-tindale offered a resolution
which was ndopted asking the executive
rommittee of the IocjiI board to take defi
nite action on the changed conditions. It
vss in in session at the time and referred
it to the finance committee. Whenthat com
mittee will report anil what the report
will le cannot be stated.
SIGNIFICANCE CF THE ACTION.
It Means that One 1 aw May Be Obeyed
and the Other Nullified.
The significance of the resolution of the
board of control lies ia the fact that a ma
jority of the members are in favor of open
ing the exposition ou Sunday and beiiev'e
that this end may be retched if the direct
ors will only obey the last law ot cc re
gress and furnish the money for the
committee on awards. General St. Clair
said that after carefully examining the
cas he is convinced that congress in tak
ing .V.'l',800 from the souvenir half dollar
appropriation has nullified the Sunday
closing clause of the first appropriation
bill. He said a majority of the national
commission was iu favor ot an open Sun
day. They had voted to close the fair
practically at the dictation of congress.
Views of Judfe Bryan.
Judge Eryan believes that Sunday open
ing is new possible. "Congress and the
Chicago directors made a contract last
August," he said. "The directors agreed
to keep the fair closed on Sunday if con
gress appropriated &!,.V0,000 in souvenir
coins. That was not the wording of tue
law, bat it was the meaning of it. Now
congress, without consulting the second
party to the contract, proposes to
take away nearly $000,000 of the
appropriation. In other words it violates
the contract, snd the violation of a con
tract by one f the parties releases the
other party to :t from the obligations im
posed." Artiou of tlie Legislature.
The bill prepared for Representative
Mitchell, of Cook, to introduce at Spring
field compelling the Chicago board to keep
the fair open ou Sunday was characterized
by a number of lawyers on the national
and local boards of the fair as ineffectual
legislation. They said the law would be
inoperative even if enacted.
THOSE ILLINOIS LEGISLATORS.
Business Ioue Just Before Taking a
SrmsuFiEUJ. March 1(1. The senate yes
terday confirmed all the nominations sent
in by the governor Tuesday, and also the
following sent in yesterday as members of
the board of trustees of the Illinois Sol
diers and sailors' home at Quincy: Will
iam Steinwedelt, of Quincy; Lewis IJ. Pat
rons, of Flora, and James A. Sexton, of
Chicago. F. M. Roberts, nominated
by Governor Fifer, was also confirmed as
public administrator of Green county. He
is a Democrat. The bill to enable cities
and towns to supply electric light and
power was made special order for Wednes
day next. The bill was passed appropriat
ing SIW.OIK) to Pontiac reformatory, as was
the bili appropriating &W.000 to state, dis
trict and county fairs.
Established Another Precedent.
. In the house a member was permitted to
correct a roll call of the day before, claim
ing that he was recorded wrong. This es
tablishes r.nother precedent. The bill to
have patrol wagous covered in all cities
was amended so as to apply only to
Chicago and ordered engrossed. The bill
to regulate street car fares in Cham
paign and Madison counties was sent to
third reading. The bill to punish men
who desert their families without ca"se
was amended by striking out "without
cause." The bill to make mayors' terms
four years and prohibiting re-election was
killed Both houses adjourned to Monday.
Got Out of Sick Bed to lie.
Bostox. March 16. Rev. William Gra
ham, of the First Presbyterian church, was
the third speaker at the sixteenth annual
supper of the East Cambridge Woman's
Temperance union last night. As he arose
he said: "I came out of a sick bed to show
the side that I am on." The sentence was
hardly spoken before he turned deathly
pale and fell back and expired in a low
momenta, medical aid being tendered to
9.0 avail by two physicians present.
