Montreal, July 7. This ancient and
R jman Catholic city never before in its
exigence witncswd such ccene as are
now beiiiK enacted by the ffreat I"rotes-tant
Society of Chritian Endeavor. The con
vention l-gn business with a rush and a
vim that must be a marvel to a people
which has for so many year seen little or
Doming or the methods of American
Protestantism, but has been almost wholly
acquainted with the ceremonial of the
churrh of Home. At 6:: a. m. prayer
r.Ev. rr.Ascis clahk-
meetings were in operation in half a dozen
of the larpt-.-t Protestant churches, ar.d, at
10 o'clock the convention prorn-r met in
the Drill hall. It was then that Montreal
had an o;i;ort unity of appreciating the
(Treat multitude that bus entered the city's
Kates within the past twenty-four hours.
The Drill hall, avast structure a regi
ment can rnaneouvre with ease on its floor
was filled to overflowing with delegates
to the twelfth annual convention. On the
platform were representative clergymen of
all the leading cities of the continent.

For a quarter of an hour the Vast multi
tude sang gospel hvmns with dash and
Bpirit, and then Kev. FrancisClark, the
father of the movement, arose and led the
audience in n-peating the Twenty-third
psalm. Hvmns were sandwiched between
every address. Rev. MacGillivray wel
comed the convention on behalf of the
Protestant pastors, and then Mayor Des
Jardins, wearing his chain of office, wel
ccme4tt.m officially. Ilia welcome wag a
fetn.e,of the day, and he got a royal re
ception. He said: "While I am a Roman
Catholic myself, and while Montreal is a
Roman Catholic city in that the greater
portion of her citizens profess that faitii.
Bone will extend a heartier welcome than
we will." The great crowd cheered the
senator almost into astonishment. "It is
not a battle of creeds nowadays," contin
ued the senator, "but a battle between be
lief and unbelief," and there was another
great outburst of applause.
Two National Anthem. Sung,
When Mr. Des Jardins sat down Presi
dent Clark called upon the choir to sing
"God Save the Queen," the audience join
ing in and waving their handkerchiefs and
American and British flags. As they fin
ished President Clark shouted "My
Country 'Tis of Thee," now, and again
there was another great outburst of a
plause, which almost stunned the spar
rows flying about under the lofty roof.
Then there were two more addresses of
welcome, one by Secretary Budge on be
half of the Y. M. C. A. of the city, and tl s
other by A. A. Ayer, chairman of the ar
rangements committee for the year.
Mas a AVhaek at Open Sunday.
Rev. Dr. S. I'. Henson. of Chicago, re
plied to the addresses of welcome, extend
ing thanks for the right roynl welcome.
DrT Ht-nson's speech was a witty and patri
otic effort. Dr. Henson did not think the
time would ever come for annexation, but
he did lielieve the time would come when
the proudest thing they could say, Eng
lish or American, was. "I am a Christian,"'
and the loyulest type of Christian was an
Endi avorer. He believed the present con
vention to Ik- a greater exhibition than
that on the whores of Ijike Michigan and
especially since it had been Hininjietl by
the Jierii.l3- of a loan directorate.
REMEMBERED GEORGE AND MAY.
The Convention Hraru a Ito.ial Salute and
Just as Dr. Henson was finishing his re
ply to the address of welcome the guns of
the battery on St. Helen's island, opposite
the city, began booming out a royal
salute of twenty-one guns and President
Clark drew attention to the'' fact tnat they
were booming for the wedding of the
sailor prince of England and Princess
May and be thought that they should in
some way observe the event. So he called
upon Kev. Bishop Arnet, of Vickaburg,
Miss., of the African Methodist Episcopal
church, to offer up prayer, which the
bishop did, the audience then joining in
singing impressively "Praise God From
Whom All Blessings Flow." This ended
the morning session.
It was tent against Drill hall in the after
noon, or at least that was the way it
looked. The melodious strains that floated
backhand forth across Craig street, the
deafening applause that went up, remind
ed the old military attaches of the Drill
hall, they said, of the shouts and counter
shouts of an attacking and defending host,
and tbe large military teat on the Champ .

"I am in possession of a little informa
tion that may be of some interest to you.
In tbe records of the department of the se
cret service bureau i a London there is a
record made of a paj ment of ;.'', 000 in
connection with your name. The entry is
made in a block book or day book a kind
of memorandum book that is keept for the
day and afterward copied into a more im
portant book wherein is recorded the pur
pose of the work for which the money is
paidnd the name of the person who gets
the money. You can make whatever use
you like of this infomation I am giving
"I do not know what use to make of
it, only to publish it." said O'Donovan
Rossa. "I have felt fc r years that England
desired to have me dead and to have my
work dead and that she had agents em
ployed to have the two things done. Eng
land's influence in New York is powerful
and I have felt it strongly against me in
every move I have made to go ahead.
There is no doubt that the Dudley .woman
was sent over to kill me, she having the
assurance that nothi ig would happen to
her if she di kill rue. There is no doubt
that she was given bi.ek to England alter
she shot me."
"Talk about payii g 200,000 to kill
Rossa," said an Englishman in this city.
"They found out long ago, even over there,
that Rossa may talk, but he never bites.
As a matter of fact I believe the Conserva
tives would pay a goo i round sum to res
urrect him, if that we possible, so that he
might be used ns a bugaboo to frighten
the timid Britishers into voting against
home rule. But it ca-mot be done. There
are limits to human credulity."
