THIS MORNING'S PROCEEDINGS.
The Committee on President' Address Re
ports Mission Work In Foreign Lands
The Concert at .Jubilee Tent I-HKt Night
Yesterday Afternoon's llnsiness.
The chief business before the Au
gustana S3'nod of North America at
its session at Augustana college this
morning was the reception of the re
port of the committee on president's
address. It embraced some 14 or
15 resolutions devoted largely to
the work of the synod that
in the missionary fields in
particular. One of the most
significant resolutions, however, was
that relating to the position
of the synod as regards the Roman
Catholic church. Tlie resolution, as
adopted by the tynod, maintains
that while the Lutherans composing
it together with all Protestants con
sider the Church of Home an enemy
to the gospel, they nevertheless ob
ject and refuse to co-operate with
secret societies whose purpose is to
The synod balloted on three new
directors, it resolved to appropriate
(300 for the support of Khanisha Mor
athkhau, the Persian priest in Prus
sia, and determined that the remain
der of the mission funds be given
over to the mission .fields under the
general council for India.
As to Kev. Misi Slinw.
Two days ago the synod adopted a
resolution expressing its disapproval
of Miss Shaw's temperance lecture in
the bazar of the University associa
tion. The synod has no objection to
Miss Shaw, and certainly not to her
cause: neither has it any control
over the acts of the University asso
ciation, but it merely wanted to rec
ord itself as opposed to the idea of a
woman preacher. Just before the
noon adjournment today President
Kosander. of the University associa
tion, brought the matter to the at
tention of the synod again, holding
that that bodv hail done the associa
tion an injustice in its stand. A
motion was thereupon made to open
the question again of Miss Shaw's
speaking and the synod adopted a
motion looking to that end. though
a division of the house was necessary
to determine it.

Yesterday Afternoon's Kusiness.
At yesterday afternoon's session of
the Svnod the'additional members of
the board of Augustana college were
elected as follows: ltcvs. L. A. John
son, Rockford; G. Rast. Red Wing;
P. Westerlund. Orion; A. P. J. Col
berg, St. Paul. There are still six
more members to be chosen. The
new board is being chosen from dif
ferent parts of the country which will
make the institution- better known
and impress its importance upon
the minds of those who are not so
familiar with it. A great revival of
interest will no doubt result. The
greater portion of the afternoon was
consumed in a discussion of the
matter of a new constitution. The
main controversy centres upon -the
matter of representation. One pro
position is to reduce the representa
tion as the Synod is growing at such
a rapid rate that it can not well be
entertained at any one place. In
this wav it is thought bv some how
ever 1 hat the control will pass into
the hands of a few which would not
be satisfactory at all. Two proposi
tions have already been made, but it
is not likely that cither will be
chosen. The matter was linalv re
ferred to a committee composed of
Prof. J. S. Carlson, of St. Peter,
Mill., Kev. P. Sjobloni. of Fergus
Falls anil Rev. M. Fyrkman who will
report to the convent inn a constitu
tion based on a few points indicated
bv the con vent ion.
Sff(l the Mow.
Since it has become known that the
United Glass company has about de
cided to discontinue the operation of
its factory here a feeling has become
prevalent amongloeal capitalists that
a new company could be formed. A
great many of the operators would
be more than willing to remain and
as the market here it is said would
more than take the output of the
factory it looks very much as though
it would be, a go.

An Exciting Incident.
Just before the horses reached the
judges' stand on the finish of the
fourth race, the jockey riding Ruth.
R. V. Ary, of Princeton, 111., who had
failed on the home stretch to pocket
the horse Lead Up, bent over his sad
tile and struck the rider of that
horse, SchatTer, several terrific blows
on the head with the butt of his whip,
which so dazed SchatTer that he fair
ly wabbled in his saddle. The time
made by the winner was announced!
by the judges and then the
crowd pushed down from the ground
stand to the track and amid cries of
"foul"' the jockeys. Schaffer and Ary,
were called into the judges' stand.
SchalTer's head was bleeding from the
blows he received. It only took a
short time for the judges to decide
what should be done with Ary, and
that was expulsion from the track
forever. So he will ride no more on
an association track. Chief Kessler
was ordered to take Ary in charge,
allow him to change his clothes and
leave the grounds. Starter McElroy
then announced to the crowd what
action in the matter the judges had
taken and stated also that no such
disgraceful work would be tolerated
by the association.
The obstreperous jockey was fined

PUSHED TO THE WALL.
Frank Horn the Wholesale Liquor Dealer
The lirst Rock Island business
house to close its doors on account
of the stringent financial situation
was the wholesale liquor house of
Frank N. Horn, doing business as
the Anti-Trust Distilling Co., at 1517
Second avenue. The doors were
closed late yesterday afternoon and
the stock and fixtures disposed of to
Max Kohn, of Moline, and work was
it once begun removing it to that
place. Mr. Horn has been doing
1 good business right along,
but of late as collections became
tight, as they have in every other
line, and he found he could not meet
his obligations. His principal cred
itor was his father, who had fur
nished him with capital. When he
became in tight circumstances h
asked an extension of time from sev
cral of his creditors, but was refused
and expecting that they would close
in on him, he turned the business
over to his father, who in turn sold
the stock to Mr. Kohn. Mr. Horn
expects to be able to straighten up
all Ins atvatrs here in a short time
and to resume business.

The German Lutheran church on
Twentieth street was well lilled last
evening, the occasion being the mar
riage of Rev. August C. Mennicke,
son of the pastor of the church, to
Miss Theresa Selle, daughter of Prof.
Earnest Selle, of the parochial school
of the same church. The church had
been handsomely decorated, a beau
tiful floral arch spanning the steps
up to the altar. At precisely 7:30
the bridal party entered the church
to the strains of a grand wedding
march by Prof. Moeller and took
their places at the altar. The bride
was becomingly attired in a hand
some wedding costume of pink silk,
and carried a bridal bouquet. The
bride was attended by .the Misses
Lvdia Range, Carrie Mennicke and
Millie Otto, all attired in cream col
ored costumes. 1 he groomsmen
were Rev. G. Traub, Walter Selle
:nd August Moeller, the impressive
ceremony being performed by Rev.
C. A. Mennicke, father of the groom.
After the ceremony the bridal party
repaired to the home of the bride's
parents on Fifth avenue, where a
wedding supper was served and con
gratulations extended to the happy
couple. They were the recipients of
many handsome tokens of esteem
from admiring friend. Both are
well known and have many friends
who will ioiu with The Ahcis 111
wishing them prosperity and happi
ness through life. Rev. Mennicke
and wife left last night for Chicago
where they will enjoy their honey
moon, after which they will return
to the parish of the groom located

Two months ago if a man wanted
a filter he would probably buy one of
two kinds cither a Pasteur or a Gate
City (or Zanesville.) Both were, and
are, good. The objection to the first
is its cost, and to the second, the
wearing out of the filtering discs.
Today, in the .so-called "Rapid"
filter, patented April 4th, the good
points of both filters are combined.
I have the "Rapid," and will be glad
to show it.
