As we have only a limited number of these bargain shoes an early selection is advised. _ ~ GEO. D. CLELAND. In Men's Shoes much can be said. The present genteel style is the wide toe, ot which we're selling large numbers, is particularly neat. Strange that it should be so hard to get the young men out of the habit of wearing the narrow toed .-hoes when they are virtually out ol style. Bannister's shoes are all made on the wide toe last. They are the finest ready-made shoe in the market and give entire satisfaction.

John Wood, the man who was arrested on Tuesday In Middletown by a Deputy United States Marshal the charge of selling liquor without having paid the United States tex, was given a preliminary hearing yesterday before Commissioner Smith. The only witness examined was Deputy Collector oT Internal Revenue I. L. Adkins. He testified to hearing the complaint about the prisoner selling liquor Illegally and he at once took steps towaid capturing liltn. lie went down to the neighborhood last July, and, while hunting around for the cabin, he came across a man by the name of Willis or Chcars, who was acquainted with the road to the cabin. The witness asked the man to show him the way to tho cabin, as he wanted to trade horses with the pris oner. The man finally consented to go wit h the witness. Upon arriving at the cabin, Wood was not home. After some parley, he purchased a pint of whisky from the woman who passes as the prisoner's wife. After some persuasion ho induced tho man Willis to take a drink from the bottle. The witness then disclosed who he was, when Willis threw up his hands and exclaimed that he was dono for, as If Wood ever found out that he had piloted the witness there, that he would shoot him some night, and it w'ouid never be found out who did It. The Deputy Collector waited around the hovel ior some time, and was finally rewarded by seeing Wood. He Immediately charged him with ßeHinst liquor coutrary to law. nlcd the charge at Ilrst but at last ad mitted it, and Inquired how much was the penalty, and was told $37.50. Of this amount he paid $1 promising to pay the re mainder, which he has not done. This con cluded the testimony and the prisoner was held for a further hearing until Marshal McMullin, who is down in the forest hoot ing witnesses, returns with them. Wood d" THE LOST CHARLIE ROSS. Kx-Counollman Logan Declares That Be Can Produce the Missing Boy. [Philadelphia Times.] Fifty or sixty curious people gathered last evening in the hall of the Assembly Build ing, Tçnth and Chestnut, to hear Ex-Coun cllinan James Logan explode the "Great. Ross Bubble." After some preliminary practicing on the piano by a young lady In a bright red basque, who apparently labored under the delusion thut the "Malden's Prayer" had never before been heard by any of the audience, Mr. Logan appeared in evening costume and announced himself as a man who never asked any favors of anybody, but always was ready to grant them to everybody. Therefore, he would not be disappointed if his lecture did not iroduce the desired effect upon the minds of »is hearers, because for nlue years ho had been laughed at and called u crank. lie did not care about such trifling matter, for he bad sworn to umavel the Charlie Ross mystery and he would do so, crank or no crank, il it took him his lifetime. Mr- Logan then proceeded to unfold the results oi his researches in a rambling dis course, which lasted over two hours and in which he repeatedly charged that Charlie Ross had been stolen by his father,Christian K. Ross. At the close of his address Mr. Logan asked his audience and iufiucntiul mon of Philadelphia to back him up with their influence, so that he could obtain a requisition from Governor Pattisou to bring Charlie Ross and his preseut captor from St. fyouls, where they are now llviog, to this city. This ho 4 e,clarcd he could do within 90 days. AMUSEMENTÜ. To morrow evening the"Two Johns binatlon will appear. The comedy is one of the most laughably now being piesented on the stage.

Hundreds even were unable to procure peats and were obliged to stand the perfor mance oqt. The program pleased the laige audience although a number of t|»c jokes were somewhat antiquated. F. E.

Miss Abbie Carrington made a decided bit as Arlinc —the best thing she has so ter doue ln Philadelphia. Miss Lizzie Anuaudale warmly greeted by the audience and was very satisfactory as the Gipsy Queen. Mr. George Traveuor—a very efficient tenor— made 9 very ggreeablo impression as Thad dens, and Mr. Peakes was a capital Devils hoof. The other singers lu the east were j fair.

Opening Her mono by tllfthop Clark-Tho IVIornlng ami Evening Session»- Organi zations Completed. Philadelphia, Oct. 4.—The thirty-third General Convention of the Protestant Epis copal Church was opened yesterday in Christ Church, with prefatory ten Ices of a most befitting character. Fifty bishop.? and over 400 clerical and lay delegates, repre senting every State In the Union, were pres ent, and no previous convention of the Pro testant Episcopal Church ever brought together so many eminent minds os the one now in session. Among the lay delegates are some of the most prominent men of the nation. The church, of course, was crowded and hundreds of persons were unable to gain ad mission. On the communion table was ex posed the ancient communion service pro sented to Clni6t Church in 1108 by Queen Anne, and a magnificent gold alms basin, the gift of the Convocation of Canterbury, Englond. At 10.80 o'clock the combined choirs ot Christ aud St. Stephen's Church betrau Dr. Wesley's Processional Hymn, and at the sinne moment the officiating clergy and the bishops, in full canouiaate, emerged from the robiug room and proceeded up the centre alfclo to the chancel. Rt. Rev. Alfred Lee, I). D., LL. D., of Delaware, and Rt. Kev. Anthony Wilson Thorold, D. D., lord bishop of Rochester, Eng., led the procession, fol lowed by the Rt. Rev. John Williams, D.D., LL. D., bishop of Connecticut; lit. Rev. William McLaren, S. T. I)., bishop of Illi nois, and the others, 48 In all. The last to enter was the venerable presiding Bishop, the lit. Rev. Benjamin Bosworth Smith, D. D., LL. 1)., of Kentucky, who is over 90 years of age and very infirm. He tottered feebly up tho aisle, leaning on the arm of Rev. George Francis Nelson, assistant rec tor of Grace Church, New York. When the aged prelate nro$e to pronounce the benediction he was supported by Bishop Howe, of Central Pennsylvania, aud so ex hausting was the effect that his feeble voice could scarcely be beard beyond the chancel. The lit. Rev. Thomas March Clark, Lb D. LL.D-, Bishop of Rhode Island, preached the sermon, taking as his text Exodus, xv, 17: "Thou shalt bring them in and plant them in the mountain of thine Inheritance, in tho place, O Lord, which thou hast made lor them to dwell in." The discourse com prised an historical review of the rise and progress of the Protestant Episcopal Church. In the afternoon the convention met in the Church of the Holy Trinity, Nineteenth and Walnut streets, at 4 o'clock, for orga nization. After the roll call by Rev. Secretary Hutchins nominations for the presiding office were In order, and Rev. Orlando Hat ton, D. D., of Brookville, Md., nominated Rev. E. Edwards Beardsley, D. D., LL.D., ol'New Haven, Conn., president oi the last Triennial Convention. Hie motion was seconded by llev. John F. Girault, of New Orleans. At this point Senator Edmunds lo rise In tits place, and in a 111 was étant every eye was upon him. "I ask, Mr. Chairman," besold In clear, smooth tones, "that the formality of voting be dispensed wit li in this instance, and that we elect the Rev. Dr. Beardsley by acclama tion. You all know how ably he presided over the deliberations of our last convention, and 1 think it would be an act of grace and goodlellowshlp for clumatfton." Several members were of the opinion that under a canon law the president would have to be elected by ballot. "Very well, then," remarked Senator Edmuuds. "I withdraw uiy request, for it will be just as easy to elect Doctor Beardsley by ballot as any other w'ay." "Several additional nominations then fol lowed. George II. ITance, of New Jersey, named Uev. A. A. WatBou,of North Carolina. Dr. A. T. Porter, of South Carolina, proposed Rev. Charles H. Hall, D.D., of Long Island. Rev. W. W. Buttershall, D. D., of Albany, nominated Rev.Frances Harrison,of Albany. Malcom Hay, of Pitt*Imre, heralded Rev. George Leeds, 1>. D., of Baltimore, but he declined. Rev, Moigau Dix, D. 1)., of New York, also declined to be a candidate. Fiually C. A. L. Richards, of Rhode Island, nominated Senator Edmunds. This brought the distinguished statesman to his feet at once. "Mr. C liai I emphasis, "I day, a candidate for any sort of presidency, therefore, I most respectfully decline." Before the 1 rs t woid bad been uttered a significant smile overspread the teaturcs of every delegate In the Couveutiou, aud throughout the balloting the Incident was the prevailing topic ot comment. When the tellers had counted the votes,it was announced that the whole number of votes cast was 205; necessary lor choice,133. Of these, Rev. VV. W. Battcrshall, D. D., of Albany, received 1; Kev. E. M. Van Deusen, D. D., ot Utica, N. Y., 1; Rev. Dr. Fulton,2; Rev. Francis Harrison, D. D.. of Albany, 7; IJev. N. II. Shcuck, Il D., < f Brooklyn, 4; Senator 'George F. Edmunds, of Vermont, 10; Rev. Charles II, Hull, D. D., of Long Island, 35; Rev. A. A. Watson, D.D., of North Carolina, 72, and Rev. E. E. Beard frley, D. D., ot Connecticut, 133. Dr. Beard sley, having the highest number of votes and Just coming within the number neces sary lor a choice, was declared elected, aud the vote was, upon the motion of Dr. Wftt ton, of North Carolina unamously approved. As Dr. Beardsley took the gavel the en tire Convention rose aud remained standing while the President delivered his lew words of acceptance, lie said : "I cannot take the p ace again without thanking you for fhe compliment in electing me for the second time us your presiding officer. You w'ill cot torget that, while I have sometimes been wrong, I nave ihvays tried to be just and right. This is a most Interesting period iu tho history of tho Church. A century has passed away since the jurisdiction of the Bishop of London ceased, and the efforts, oi necessity, were renewed to form an Ameri can Episcopacy, aud the Church was estab lished in the thirteen States with the suc cession in the Scottish lines. It will be well if these historical associations remind us of the work of our fathers, and teach us to re member them by building on a strong foundation aud spreading the woyk of our Master whcièvef he may be ablc.'t • The organization was t hen completed by the re-election oi the ltev. C. L. Hutchins of Connecticut as secretary and the appoint ment of Rev. Henry Austice, D. D., of cv. A ley ander J.

Kev. C. F. Knight, of Central, Pa , moved the addition of the words the Have of the chureb." Kev. J. J. Faudc, offered as a substitute that the deputies re tain their present seats as permanent. This was carried, aller some discussion, by a vote ot 130 to 90. It was resolved that the South gallery be reserved lor the families of the Bishops and deputies and the clergy. There being no further, business the Convention udjourned until this morning at 10 o'clock. in THE HKHODFLKD INSTITUT«. Tlio Rencnrkabie Changes Made to This Old Ruildtng Recently—What the Build ing Looks Like on the Inside. For some months pait w orkmen bave been engaged in making alterations and improve ments In the auditorium of tho Institute Hall. The changes are now completed and the building ferent appearance on the second aud third floors aud would hardly bo recognized by persons visiting them who bad not been ap praised of the changes being made. On the first floor nothing has been touched and the visitor does not notice anything unusual until he ascended the stairs leading to the second floor. Turning to the right, Instead of coming to a bare wall as before, the visitor finds himself In a larger pen hallway 15 feet wide, running the full length of the building, north and south, from this hallway, an open stairway leads to third floor. This space was chopped off of the large hall, and gives the directors an extra room beßldes sufficient space for the enclosed water closets and stationary wash stands, which stand to the south of the en trance to the auditorium. All the rooms, five In number, fronting on Market street oj»en on this hall. Three arc already occupied. The others, Nos. 4 and 5, will be fitted up aud are for rent. No. 4 will bo used as a sort of accommodation room for small bodies who may wish to have a temporary meeting place, and also In case of balls in the halls as a gentlemen's toilet. On tho third floor, by the Improvement, a large room has been added at the southern end of the building, which will also be for rent. The rooms formerly In this part of the building have been enlarged, and that at the northeast end lias been given the advantage of the 15 feet over the large hall. Water closets and stationary wash stands have also teen placed floor, a convenience heretofore unknown. But the most remarkable chauge of all is to the auditorium, which heretofore was hurdly better than a barn. A description ol this teinodelcd room will not convey by any means the remarkably cosey appearauce that has been added by the change. But an attempt at a description will not prove amiss. The entrance to the hall is from the large open hallway, instead of from the stair land ing. The old floor has been nlaiued off and a new and tight floor laid. The taking off of 15 feet at the east end of the hall now makes it & most convenient shape and about TO feet square. The old stage and ungainly dressing rooms which stood at the west end of the old room have been changed to the south end. Tho stage Is about the «»arao aizc of «te am one trat the aresFlng rooms arc built to the ceiling, which It is believed will the acoustic presents an entirely dlf this materially hn properties. The prove stage is supplied with moveable foot lights and is also provided with the most Improved border-lights. Over the dressing room at the west end of the stage has been bu It a property room of good proportions, where scenery, files and drop curtains will be stored. Tue space over tho east end dressing room goes to make up a room on the third floor. From the dressing room at tho west end of the stage leads into a small room which can be used lor almost any purpose. To this room it attached a water closets and washstands of the most complete dreßs ing-room for ladles during balls or recep tions that co«ld be desired, as the stage dressing-room In connection with the small room to the west will afford ample accom modations for a very largo party of ladies. The old gallery at the north of the hall has not been changed other than being newly painted, the side walls of the remo deled hall have been repainted In a very neat manner, but the celling is a master-piece of frescoing. The designs are original and so complicated, yet with all bearing out a decided ligure that an attempt at desclbfng ils beauties would almost be impossible. All the colors of the rainbow are blended in such a harmonious manner that the effect is perfect. The contractors door and will be who aided so much in niakiug this ancient building one of the most desirable places In which to give con certs, lectures, balls, etc., are carpenter ing, James Mitchell, plumbing, Stewart & Jones; plain painting, Cardwell & Wall; frescoing, N. F. Goldberg. The work of cleaning the place is now in progress and everything will bo as neat and clean as a new pin by Wednesday next when the building will be formerly opened with a concert hy the Trinity Choir and Philharmonic Orchestra. Tho stockholders will each receive a ticket and the remaining will be sold a 50 cents each. The seating capacity of the all is be tween 6Ü0 and 700 and so positiv directors of the hall that the alteration has done away with the old echoes In the room that they have decided to put the severcet test upon it, that of giving an instrumental and vocal concert. If there is anything that will test the acoustic properties of a building it is au orchestra, but the di rectors are positive that the trouble In this connection has been doue away with, and frequent tests have been made during the progress ot tho alterations, all of which have proved successful. The old benches will ho used In the audi torium until a future date, lyhen they will bo substituted for a portable chair like that in use iu the new hall at New Castle will be put in. the A. F.

Sullivan, couneel for O'Donnell, has applied for a postponement of the trial to allow time for the arrival of Orccnhough and the officers of the Kiufauns Castle, whom he will sub poena. He hopes to retain the service of Charles Kusscll, Q. C., to assist him in de fending O'Ponnell. In an Interview to-day Mr. Sullivan out lined his client's defense. According to bis statement, O'Donnell says he never sus pected "Power" to be Carey until the day after the vessel reached Cape Town. He had been attracted to Carey because be per ceived him lobe a fellow-countryman, and irom ! : is moody mysterious inanucr supposed he might be a "suspect" escaping. The day alter they left the Cape a rumor was circulated about the 6hip that Carey was aboard. O'Donnell was overcome by the Idea that he had lived on the most frieudiy te morning he was much distressed by the un certainty as to whether or not "Power" was Carey, and ho drank fieely with the in former to draw him out. Carey, suspecting something, changed h'.s manner to O'Donnell und, ongoing into the saloon lor beer,asked him what he had done with his pistol. "I sold it," O'Donnell replied (lying,) "but why are you afraid ? Only a man who had something on his conscience would bo afraid ot that," orw'ords to that effect. Carey took a hectoring tone and said, "O'Donnell you are ready to go off at half cock." 0 He then grappled O'Donnell, who took Carey 's collar by his left and paralyzed band. Carey aud be thert each put their hands in their pockets and drew ou', pistols. O'Don nell fired with his right band. Carey's re volver went off and dropped on the floor. The informer staggered forward, stooping to pick up his weapon. Seeing this, O'Don nell fired again, and Tom Carey then picked up his father's pistol. It will be remembered that youug Carey has sworn tnat his father did not have his pistol with him at the time of the shooting. Mr. Sullivan says he Is contldent the young man will be convicted of perjury ou that point. Threehuudred pounds were received from America to-day O'Donnell defense fund, was Informed of the cl rcu instance he ex pressed himself as being very grateful, and said that he knew the Americans would not forget him. with the Informer.

A CLOSE SHAVE FOR THE CLEVELANDS A VERY EXCITING CONTEST Yesterday a Day for One-nided Scores— The Athletic Flay With the Philadelphia aud Make a Score of t3 to 3. The Cleveland League club met with a surprise party yesterday afternoon and came near suffering defeat at the bands ot the lowest team in the Inter-State. The only offer for winning the game is that Sawyer, their left hand pitcher, who acted as umpire, gave them the game by bis "offnes»" on Pyle's balls and strikes, and his decision of a foul ball in the ninth in ning won the game for the Cleveland. The home team played a splendid game, and the Clevelands did some magnitlcent playing and did all there was In them. The game opened with the Clevelands at the bat, and Rotating led off with a bit and Glasscock and York followed him. By the sharp fielding of the home team but one was enabled to score. In the fourth and filth innings the Cleveland scored three runs by the aid of hits and an error. The Quick step In their half of the fifth led off with a two base hit by Pyle and Kienzel advanced him a base by another hit and Benners brought both home by a three base hit which fairly sent the audience wild with ex citement. The crowd yelled and screamed with delight and when Benners scored on a passed ball the excitement knews no bounds. The score wos now 5 to 4 in the home teams favor and both sides played a magnificent fielding game until the ninth Inning. Daley came to the bat and drove & ball right inside the right field foul line, about two feet outside, Snyder caught it on a bound and thinking sure that his man was out did not hurry back to his base. The umpire dcclarud the ball "fair" and Daly took two bates. Uotaling their next batter went out on a fly and Glasscock sent Daly to third ou a hit. Phillips, the next batter, was clearly out on strikes but he was allowed to stay until be hit the ball and brougbt both men home. Sharp fielding tben put the next two men out. For the homo nine's half of the inning, Kienzel reached first on 6evon balls, arid the crowd was all excited when Benners came to the bat and drove away out to left field corner, but York had been laying for him, and after a long run ptured it. The home team failed to score alter this, as both Hoover and Albert went The pitching of Pyle and the catching of Cuslck was splendid, and they woiked excellently together. Rickley made ßorao beautiful third-base plays and several won derful stops. Albert played an excelleot game at short. Kienzel made three good catches at centre field and Snyder took everything that came his way. York at left made soire marvellous catches and Glasscock's covering of short was superb. The Clevelands are wonderful throwers and beautiful fielders.
