Efforts Made to Preveot a Report Ap pearing in the Minutes. AN ABLE PRODUCTION, BUT CAUSTIC. Its Supporters Defend It Against What They Term "Discourteous Treat ment" by the Conference. At the nf let noon session of the Mary land Synod yesterday the Messiah Luth eran Church of Ikltlmoro wn? received Into the Synod, and It was dectded to appoint a missionary superintendent at $1,S00 n year. A resolution was also adopted requesting the managers of the World's Fair to closo their gates on Sunday. Dr. Valentino of the committee on a "provisional catechism" made a report condemning most of the catechism adopted last year, and advised that It bo not adopted In Its present form. The report created considerable discussion, and It W88 finally ordered to be referred back to the committee for revision In matter of objectionable phraseology. NEXT 8YNOO AT 1'BN MAIL St. Mark's Church of Hagorstown was admitted on motion of Dr. Dlchl. A resolution Indorsing this proposition to hold the next Synod at Pen Mar was referred to a special committee, and at 1 o'clock tho convention adjourned with benediction by Itev. C. I.eplcy. In tho evening addresses were made on foreign missions and education by Ilcv, U.S. Conk of Waynesboro', Pa., and Itev. Mr. Evans of llnlllmorc.

To-day's sess'on of tho Evinirellcal Lutheran Synod, opened promptly a' 0.80 o'clock this morning by devotional exercises, led by tho Huv. U, E. Dyns. The Church of the Information of ltfllllmoro and tho Lutheran Church of Uraddock, Mil., having made aatlsfac loir reports, were admitted to the Synod. An election of directors for the Gettysburg Theological Seminar? was then held, with the following remits: Clerical director. Itev. Dr. Hemmlng way of Baltimore; lay directors. W. K. Duller. J. M. Miller. J lilckler and ltov. Victor Miller. Tho Rev. Dr. DIohl was olected a Ir-Mteo tf lh. pastors' fund committee. Tho committee on a "provisional catechism," whose report created so much discussion yesterday afternoon, and was returned to the committee KOK HK MION OP ITS I'HKASKOLOQY, was reported back by the chairman. Dr. Valentine, and a motion was made by Dr. Owen that the report be accepted, with the provUIon that due consider Hon should be given to the objectionable feature of the report, and that acopy of It should be sent to the General Synod. The Synod, however, did not seem disposed to order the revised report of the committee to be printed, ami were addressed at some length by Dr. Valen tine on the subject. lie saw no reason, he said, why the Synod should be puz zled to know what to do with the re poit. The committee bad no power over the catechism, but that power and responsibility was held by the General Synod. Dr. Owen agreed with many of the criticisms which the commit tee had made oa the report, but he believed that both sides should be heard upon It without any parly feeling. IXTKtLBCTCVL BIT CVUbTIC. Dr. Dtehl thought that Dr. Valen tine's report was a very able production intellectually, but it was very eauUc la temper. The committee had not torn into pieces the catechism of Luther, but bail built up another eatecbUia which he did not believe was worthy of being considered with Luther's. Dr. Uulkrof the MeatorUl Church thought the Synod was discourteous la not permitting the committee to print its npott in the minutes of the Synod It was due to both the committee ami Synod that the report should he pub lished for the bestnt of the church as one of the ablest productions of the conference. DKFKkDIKG TUB COUMITTM. Dr. Albeit, in a clear and explicit wanner, defended the work of the com mltue, and changed the Synod with en denvoiiag to prevent the eommttts from dfcjemttsjc its criticisms oa the catechism when the members of the Synod refused to allow the report of Use conuttUtee to be primal la the minutes of the conference. D . Dower believed that the commit tee had acted in a quiet, calm ami uls pasbiooate manner, and not in the bit ter spirit of criticism which the Synod seemed to think characterized its ac tions. But although he was a mmltr of Umi cosnmittoe he utfht thnt the oiijcinal Luther's csUK.-hTsin was the best, ami he would use that whenever he jrftTyl to teach a ratfhlsm A UMS-UC CATIXitUtt WAKTEO.

The fact that the Lnlberan Church Is now the third Protestant denomina tion In the world, shows what ther have done ami what they ought to do. The woikof home missions should be on ducted according to the peculiarities of tbe persons whom It Is sought to con vert. Dr. Albert also fpoke of the rellg'otn spirit which marks the German rAce. ami has marked It since the days of Fatltufl, the first iral hlstotlan nf lire Germans. The German Lutheran Church has Increased greatly within the last decade, and In the Marylaml Synod had Increased a lareer tier cent than the State Itself. The speaker concluded with an eloquent appeal for Christianity among all the races of the world. The morning session Was closed with a prayer by the llev. Dr. Detwellter, and the conference adjourned until 1:80 o'clock. Tho afternoon session was devoted to the election of lay delegates and other business. AN EXTRA SESSION. The President, It In Alleceri, Wilt Call One for MoTemlier 11 Nbw Yoiik, Oct. 0. A Washing ton special to tho Jiifl and Htprm says: "It Is 9tntcd, on what should be good authority, that President Harris in will call tin oxtra session of Congress on November 11 to consider and pass tho Federal Election law. Tho samo authority tells me that, before ho left the city, Senator Aldrlch had an In terview with tho President, and, during that call, Presldont Harrison told tho Senator that ho wanted tho btll passed and beforo tho second session began, and It was understood that the extra session would be called. There will be no trouble In passing the btll In the Senate, although the Democrats will ccdeavor to talk It to death, but should tho extra session bo called, It would not last long, and the Federal Etcctlon bill will bo a law before It adjourns. Tho news of tho extra session Is so surptlslng at this tlmo that It seems hardly probable, yet Inquiry on the Scnato side of the Capitol showed that it Is almost an accepted fact there, and that preparations are being made for the convening of the Senate early after tho November election. Several of tho Senators' clerks and a large lumber of Senate employes are here working with tho Idea of an extra session, but still thero are many who will not believe the news, although the authority for It Is so good. It Is known that the President has been strongly urged by HepubUcan leaders to call an extra session, and that delay In tho matter has been occasioned by consideration of the question of policy Involved." Oitumw, Oct. 0. The Washington dispatch saying that the President had determined to call a spechl session of Congress was shown to Private Seerstaty Halford this afternoon by the United Piess cor respondent. Mr. Halford. after reading It, said: "That Is not true. No decision has been reached." FRANCE DID NOT PROTEST. bo Say Srnretarr Hlalno IlnrrUon a Nut Ice 111 Diplomacy. Nkw Yokk. Oct. 0. The Sun' Washington correspondent telegraphs that in answer to an Inquiry concerning a report that tbe French Legation had complained to the State Department about the official nature of the recep tion of given to Comte de Paris In this country, Mr. lllalue made the following reply: "Not a word has passed between the representatives of the French Government ami myself on this subject, ami furthermore, no ccmmuBicaiion of any klad has been sent to tbe State Department about the matter." The Sua't correspondent continues "Further investigation at tbe State Department establishes the fact that It is sot customary for the President to deputize any one, except an ntticer of that Department, to receive In an official manner a distinguished visitor In this country. If Collector Erbardt did welcome tbe Count la tbe same of the President, as alleged, the Slate Depart ment omcials contend that he did so without authorization, liut the weak point, in a diplomatic sense, was tbe message from the President, in reply to the Count's teitgram, to the effect that be would be out of town when the Count leached Washington, but would be happy to see him on hU return. This message was probably sent with out surhcient consideration, but diplo mats insist that it does not compromise this nation ia the least, because it can have no official stenlrleance unless it emanates from or passes through tbe Stele Department, and it will be noticed that the State Department has been perfectly mum in reicard to the Count from the outset until the present time."

THE DES PERADO, MET HIS KATE. SHOT DOWN WHILE TRYING TO ESCAPE. The Ceol Audacity of a Man Bqual to Any Bmsrgwcy. LIKE A CHAPTER FROM A DIME NOVEL. Ilia Eventful (kmrMsrier Followed fey Frivolity The Story of Many Bldy Crimes lie Perpetrated. HiHMiNottAM, At a., Oct. 0. Rube Durrows, the notorious desperado, en tltltd to distinction as the King of American Outlaws In this decade, who was captured In South Marengo Tues day by John JIcDuiTee and others sent out by the Southern Kxpreea Company, was shot and killed In Linden Jail oarly yesterday morning by tho sheriff and guards, while he was trying to oeoap (as briefly told In a dispatch to Tim Cnmc yesterday). The story of his capture InaMorongo County woodland cottage, Into which ho had stepped momentarily to get out of tho rain, while closoly pursued by detcctlvos and deputy shorllls, Is a short and direct one. After Uurrows had entered the coltaco McDuiTee managed, with two colored men, to go Into tho house ostensibly for some other pur pose. Durrows had placed his rllle In the corner of tho room, hut hud his revolvers In his pocket. Tho darkles engaged him In conversation and thon grabbed him by his hands, preventing his shooting. Durrows fought the daikles manfully until McDuiTee and others got Into tho house, when, after a dtsperato strupglo, they succeeded In conqucrlnc and securely tying thogroat desperado. HOW T1IK OUTLAW MKT HIS KATR. Uurrows was locked In Jail at Linden, tightly bound, and his cantor (Farmer McDulTco) and one of his negro as sistants were put In tho cell to watch him. During the night, about it o'clock, Utiriows complained of hunger, and, as he said he had some crackers In his hand-satchel, the guards, suspect ing notldmr, tossed him the satchel. Uurrows, taking from It two revolvers, leveled them at the guards and com pelled them to release his hands and legs and then to open the doors. He walked out, locked McDuffeeln tbe J til, told the negro to march In front of him to Deputy Sherlir Carter's quar ters (Carter had taken $180 in money from Duirons when he was arrested, and ho wanted his money) He walked Into Carter's room, got "the drop" on the otllcer, who was readlog before a tire, and demanded the money. Cutter reached for his pistol, which was ou a table near by, and Uurrows fired, the ball passing through Carter's body, just above his heart. Carter then fired, his ball striking Uurrows very near the heart. Uurrows then turned, shot tbe negro (John Marshall) and ran across the street, with Carter In pursuit. Several more shots were fired without effect. As Uurrows rescind the opposite side of tbe street be sank to the ground on the court bouse corner ami died with out salsg a word. Carter Is fatally wounded, It it thought, ami so is Marshall. T1IKIH LAW TKA IK HOUHKRY. Although there has for years been a price upon the head of Itube Uurrows. who was wanted to answer for crimes almost innumerable, tbe particularly audacious offense for which be has just been so hotly pursued and captured was tbe robbery, on tbe night of December 13 last, of tbe north bound Illinois Central express train at Duck Hill, midway between New Orleans and St. Louis. Itube and bis gang on that oc casion got $35,000 In tbe express c ir, bating la the meantime stopped the train just after it had pulled out of Duck Hill, boarding the engine by diieg business with the engineer and nnmae, driving tbe conductor back luto a ear when be came out to see what wss the matter, and shooting dead Chester Hughes, a passenger, with a Winchester rine. who had endeavored to assist the conductor. The high re w aids subsequently offered by the ex priss company for the capture of ltur ri'HS and his gang have, at last, led to the apprehension, one by one. of all the five desperadoes who had to do with that last great crime. Kuhe had only flTti oa hu person when captured Supesintendents Fisher and Agee of the etpteaa company say that about f 10.000 has been spent la the capture of Burrows and his gang. UtS Kt BATS' l L CSJUUUI. A volume might readily be written about the criminal career of Itube Bur rows, the principal episode thesei.it are nuite surBfteat to show that it has been an eventful one. Born in North AU bama 20 years ago, he at 18 years of age murdered a companion while out hunt leg, aad, as there was no witness, swore U out as a case of self defense. Along in iwfil, when Burrows was a mere youth, he organized a band of thieves near hie house, Vernon, Ala. He was their captain. They made whisky and sold it to the farmers up ia his neigh borhood. They had spies out, and oc casionally murdered a meddling deputy marshal or two whenever the dseuin stauces seem to require it. Burrows, it is said, tried counterfeiting money, but was unsuccessful, and gave it up. His neat est, spade occurred near Fine Bluff, Ark , three years ejto. He, hi brother. Jim Burrows, and Nick Thorn ton robbed an express oar of W,tW0. Jim Burrows was captured, prosecuted to the Arkansas courts, and sentenced to the Penitentiary fur twenty years After a white Kuhe and Kfc Tnvornton caae out from their fort and ceeu4 making whiaky. and it is said they were eaperu at the business.

He then qulfly walked to his home, tlpned his hat thin and galloped away. Tturrrjws ami Thornton left the coun try for a short time, but soon returned. In an attempt to arrest them shortly afterward an officer was shot down, but rwovored. They kept hiding around after that until a few weeks "ago a de trtllve happened along In that country. He caught little Johnnie Uurrows, a nephew of Itube, ami he gave the whole snep about the Duck Hill robbery away, telling all about how the outlaws left home and how they returned. The gang fled, ami the connection between this incident and the final capture Is a Mmple one, the details of which would not sdd materially to Its interest. BRECKINRIDGE SHOT AT AN ATTEMPT TO ASSASSINATE THE ARKANSAS STATESMAN. rimli nt n Climrlt ATI ml cut Tho Deadly Nlunctliot Used Upon Ilia CotnpnnloD,lut Intended ror Illtn, Monnn.Tox, Ante., Oct. 0. An at tempt was made on Monday night last to assassinate Major Clifton II. Ureck tnrldgc, Democratic nominee of the Second Concresslonal district, while ho was speaking at Centre Itidge. This plsco Is aoout twenty miles north of Morrlllon, the nearest railroad station, and Is the hotbed of ltcpubllcanlsm and the rendezvous of a groat many of l'ow oil Clayton's Third Arkansas mllltta, who pilfered the State, killed innocent men and robbed and Leat pure and help, less wemen dtiilng Clapton's reign of leconsttuclion. A SHOT AND A FI.VSII. Only rncegro particulars can he ob tained nf the attempt on the life of Major Ureckinrldge. The place Is a cluster of country bouses, with a blaok imllh shop, two stores, a public hmtse, a church ami school house. Major Itiecklnrldge spoke In the church to an audience composed largely of Repub licans. At the rear of the rostrum on which Major Ureckinrldge was standing Is a window, near which the would be murderer was seen passim to and fro by the Major himself. About the middle of his speech a gun was tired about iWO yards away, and In a few minutes after ward the snap of a cap was heard ami the tlaih at the window was aeen by all present. This created considerable ex- nhpnipnt nn,t &evri1 rtialuw! nnt Imf an escaue was effected by the would be ' assassin In the dark. STJICCK WITH A St.rXOSIIOT. Alter the speaklug had closed Major Ureckinrldge started for his boarding place, accompanied by a Mr. Xorman. While on tlu-lr way another attempt was made upon the Major's life, when some one slipped up behind and dealt Mr. Norman a terrible and stunning blow with a slungsbot. This blow, it is believed, was Intended for Mr. ltreckla rldee. Tbe contest is growing warmer In the Second district. Although Powell Clayton is not now a cilUea of tbe dis trict, yet be was present at tbe He pub lican Congressional Convention at rine liluff, took charge of it aad ran It ac cording to his own notion. Oa this oc casion bedelivered the following speech- THAT FIKKY SCKKCH. "Ilrecklarldge has usurped tbe seat to which John M. Clayton was elected, and since tbe Congress of tbe United States has so decide, be now has tbe audacity to come before tbe people aad ask for an Indorsement. I say that such an indorsement would be a lasting stigma upon tbe ltepubllcans of this district. So help me Ciod It shall never be given him. Life was once dear to me, but tbe time has come wbe I take my life in my bands with perfect resignation, and If I can only succeed in carrying the Second Congieas dis trict and in defeating Breckinridge I will willingly die ia the cause." This speech has aroused the blood thirsty gang who did the biddies of Clsj ton In the days of reconstruction. Tbe aitew pt oa Breckinridge's life is tbe outcome, so it is believed here, of CU) ton's inceediariau. MfJT A IIUI- KSiNC flm Kev. MaillMU V. l't,r lid a Ttute Oktltuz KsWJ. XswYouk.

Judge Mills took a turn at the dis pensation of Justice at the Xew Jersey avenue station this morning In conse quence of the sickness of Judge Miller. He was brought to the station In a cab, about 9 o'clock, ami found a new gavel on his desk carved out of black walnut and maple. Judge Miller has been complaining for a month or more, and his sickness can be attributed to his confinement In a court-room which, as has often been said before, Is a dis grace to the District and the Capital of the United States. The foul air from the "black holo," which directly and Indirectly contributes a net benefit to the Government of from fiM.OOO to ?30,000 annually, has too frequently been mentioned In tho columns of TttK dime It was well known that In spector Untwlsle was not prepared to proceed with tbe proposed Improve ments to the old court building, but Judge Miller was determined to get away from tho place as soon as possi ble, and he did so.

"You forget the dignity that belongs to tbe Court," said Judge Mills, ad dressing his remarks to one of the attorneys who appeared In tbe case of Kly Hanks, charged with petit larceny. This remark was on account of the attorney cross questioning a witness before lie had been sworn. Banks was alleged to have purloined an umbrella, and tbe Information was sworn out by Officer llally. Ited, whose name appeared on the Informa tion, denied that he bad sworn to It. "You certainly did," said District Attorney Mullowney. There seemed to be no disttoeltlon to prosecute Hanks, and the umbrella could not be identified. Tbe charge was dis missed.

Illinois, yesterday, where hit old brigade Is holding a rtunloa. He made a very good speech In reply to tbe Mayor's welcoming remarks. In fact, he has always had the knack of making good little speeches about noth ing In particular. Among other (hints recorded by the faithful Jcnkln, who chronicles the doings, great ami small, of the rnrly, was tho fact that the President and Secretary Tracy rode on the eoglne. The former tooted the whistle at cross ings and the latter banged tbe belt. It was about the fastest time Harrlwn ever had, and he enjoyeel It in a cold and proper fashion. It is asserted on good authority tint $100,000 will be sent Into Napoleon Mc Klnley's district to buy his election. The Itepubllcan magnates want the "morsl effect" of a victory In his district, being tbe party of "moral Ideas," ami are willing to pay for It. They ay tint "nural cfTecM" come high, but tu.-y mint hive them. David A. Wells, tbe celebrated poJI'I C'l economist, has been nomtotted r Cotigice by the Democrat of tho I'hlM Connecticut dlstrht. Ills opponent will be Charles A. Itinwll. the present Iteprescntatlve, win had 7t3ilurallty two years ar.o. It Is believed thai till can be overcome and ltuasell defeated. All's Wells ends well. Itepresentallve W. P WIIIco of the Secoid Connecticut district, has been renominated by the Democrats. He bad TVS plurality two years ago. One of the most exciting canvasses going on In any Congressional district Is that in the cconeTArkane, where the Hon. Clifton It. Iiraekinritlgt is a candidate for re election. Tbe countioa which compose the district gave a mv iorlty of about $ 300 sirstnst Governor Kagle. the Democratic Qubernatorial candidate. In tbe recent Slate election. It was made up of ltepubllcans, negroes and Union Labor men. Mr. llrecklnrklge's opponent is I. P. I.angley, nominated by the Union Li bor party and lodoraeu by the Hepubli- Doth sides are making a determined fight. United States Senators Joaos and Kerry have taken the stump for Mr. Ureckinrldge, ami Roger Q. Mills Is addressing great gatherings in bU behalf. On tbe other side ex Governor Powell Clayton, brother of Colonel John M. Clayton, who was murdered shortly after tbe election two years ago, is making a bitter aad determined tight for Langley. The outcome in this dU trict will be watched wltii as much in terest as even that in McKlnley's. In six of tbe eight Congressional dis tricts in New York city the Democrats united on a candidate. In the Klghlh district the nominee Is Timothy J. Campbell, who has been here before and is a wtry picturesque figure. This action leaves Judge McCarthy, tbe little giant of Tammany, out. He willdoubt bes get something at home In the Math dUtiict Amos J. Cummings will he sent back. In the Tenth the old war horse. Cetera! Spinoia. b the man. In the Kleventb Mr. Quln wab bled from organisation to orgaaixatioa at such a rate neither would place him. so both dropped him and united on John DeWitt Warner. In tbe Twelfth that sterling Democrat and genial gentleman, Mr 'ftoalwel P. Flower, was nominated by bth Tammany and the County IJeaaocret y In the Thirteenth Mr. Pitch will be returned. In the Seventh Tammany nominated Mr Duaphv and the Counties Mr. Croasdale. Mr. Douphy. as Tammany's candidate two years ago, beat both a County man and a Ib-rmblkan. In the Sixth no noInn tkw hat yet been made. This to Ice man Turner's district. stion by a convention of his friends, who met pursuant to a naJJ of the Lana-etoa RepuWkan Club oi this city. The Mahoue e ro d will prohnhly not make a nomination, but leave thie geld open to Mr Epes. the Ieavcntic e-andidaie.
