The "Xaily Vewspaper Is Dlscaesed hy th clergymen They BciT0 Considerable Praise, as well as Some Condemnation. Indianapolis, Ind., November 16. The Baptist congress continued its session to day. At 2 o'clock a paper on "The Secular Press" was read by Robert J. Burdette. He thought, as a whole, the papers were better now than at any previous time and were generally conducted in a manner well calcu lated to meet the demands and approval of the best classes of community. The paper was written in the humorist's characteristic style and was highly appreciated by the au dience. He was followed by Dr. Lasher, who held that newspapers are educators of the people and that they were as good as their readers would permit them to be. The speaker took exceptions to some features of the daily press and said that the declaration of crime m gaudy apparel, the painting of vice in glowing and seductive colors, are things that justify the title of the "satanic press" for such papers. He mam tained, however, that the net effect of news paper influence was for good and that they were a great power in the reformation of evil. The "religious press" was next taken up. Dr. H. L. Wayland, who was to open the discussion, was not present, but the paper was read by Dr. G. D.,Boardman. In the evening the improved methods of theological education were discussed oy lr. W. C. Wilkenson, of Tarratown, N. Y., and Dr. H. C. Mabie, of St. Paul, Minn. The second topic was "women's work in the church," and the speakers were Dr.W. M. Lawrence, of Chicago, C. H. Strickland, of Nashville and J. W. Wellmart, of Phila delphia. Catholic Sensation. Citi of Mexico, November 16. A lively ensation was caused here by the arrival of a circular letter issued by the Catholic bishop of the state of Tampaulipasin which he said that homage to the 'Virgin of Gaudalupe, the patron saint of the country, was not obligatory on the part of the faithful, and it is intimated that the papal authority is against making such homage a point of doctrines in Mexico. This strikes a tre mendous blow against a time-honored prac tice in this country, and comes at a time when the coronation of the Virgin of Guad alupe is the subject of an angry controversy between the liberal and church party news papers. It is asserted here by the liberals that Pope Leo does not favor the devotion of Mexican Catholics to the Virgin of Guadalupe to the extent it has been practiced and that he is desirous that the Mexican church should combat the grow ing liberalism of the country by renewed at tention to the, education of the common peo ple and so identifying the church with the bebt interests of the people. Large num bers of Catholics here sympathize with the reported attitude of the holy father. One prominent bishop, noted hitherto for his antagonism to railways and American ideas, has announced his conversion to the belief in the efficacy of railways and their need fulness to the welfare of the country, and urges his clergy in favor of railway building The newly appointed bishop of Oaxaca the state of President Diaz, is outspoken in favor of the spread of education. Evidently a progressive movement has begun inside the church, whose leading men begin to hold that the best way to meet the efforts of Protestant missionaries is to reform all existing abuses and meet education by Protestants with education under Catholic auspices. The new liberal Catholic movement favors the re-election of President Diaz. Fire Aboard Ship. Boston, November 16. Fire was discov ered early this morning in the after-hold of the steamer Venetian, loading at this port for Live, pool to sail to-day. The fire is con fined to the lower hold, and the general car go is being removed, while that portion of the vessel where the fire started is being flooded with water. The loss will be heavy, but cannot be ascertained at present. While the firemen were fighting the fire in the hold the smoke became so dense and the heat so great that a large number of firemen were overcome and rescued with difficulty. As n.any as twenty-five of them had to be car ried to the open air -where all were rsuci tated and it i" not believed' fatal results will ensue; although a number are incapacitated for further work. The Venetian is the same ship that arrived here November 10 with fire in the fore-hold. The cargo was then thrown nto the sea and the fire extinguished with :eam. The National Grange.

The arrest was made on account of his language at the anarchist meeting Sat urday night.. The arrest was made at noon, at the office of his newspaper. He was taken directly to police headquarters and locked up, His arrest was made by Director Byrnes on a warrant issued by Justice (Towing to-day for having made an incen diary speech, calculated to incite a riot in a hall on Seventh street. On Saturday night Johann Most with his companion, Lena Fischer, was attending an anarchists' meet ing on Seventh 6treet Most himself made a speech, which was particular ly blood-curdling in character. Patrol men Root and Sechs were there in civilian's dress taking notes. Monday a search was begun for the anarchist, He was not to be found. hen the excitement of the search for Most died out he thought the trouble was gone by and yesterday he came back to the city and went to work with his paper.

The inspector and seven wit nesses gave testimony and an indictment was found. Meanwhile Most had been ar rested. Most insists that he did not use the language attributed to him by the police.

Two of tti Elders Taken Out and Tarred and Feathered A Rumor That One Has Been Killed. CaijEba, AiiA., November 17. For the past six months a party of six Mormon eld ers have been proselyting in this section, and also at several small towns across the Georgia border. Several converts were made at the latter places, and the indigna tion and wrath of the people could hardly be suppressed when on Saturday last four mar ried women and two men left their homes and made public their intention of going to Utah. 'The people then all rose up at once and gave the elders orders to move on in stantly. They refused at first, but Monday night two of them were tab en out and tarred and feathered and the next night two others were chased into the woods by hounds and kept in the trees all night. The elders left next day, and the converts are now missing also, leaving six forsaken homes. If the elders ever return they will be shot on sight. The Mormons then moved into Alabama, and began their work in the lower part of this country among the ignorant country people. They were more successful there, and have already baptized a dozen or more. Tuesday, while Elders Mower and Lea were conducting a meeting at a school house, fifty armed men dragged them from the pul pit. They were carried into the woods, the. mob threatening at every step, but on the intercession of friends they were released on their written promise to leave the county in twenty-four hours. Death was the alterna tive if they returned. Both left that night,' but without their converts, escorted a por tion of the way by an armed band of nearly 100 men. Patrols are on guard and pub licly announced their intention of killing the first elder who returns there. A rumor was currant that Elder Masters was killed on the Georgia border by blood hounds, but it cannot be substantiated. The Situation in France Pabis, November 17. The ministers after meeting at the Palas Du Bourbon to consid er the situation, went in a body to the Elyze Palace and informed President (Grew of- tVift ilAmainn rvf I10 nliomkn. HT'? Mazeau then - placed his resig nation in the hands of M. Grevy and the president entrusted Minister Fallieres tem porarily with the duties of justice. A plenary meeting of the republican group of the sen ate and chamber of deputies is sum moned for to-morrow to arrange the terms of an interpellation with reference to President Grevy, which will be moved on the chamber'of deputies on Satur day. An excited discussion is going on with, reference to the successor ol President Grevy. M. M. Ferry, DeFreycinet, Flouquet, Flo arena, Leon Say, and Jules Simon have each his section of supporters and ab solute confusion prevails. The latest nomi nee of the moderates is General Saussier, the governor of Paris, who will command the votes of the sections of the right. A London Rioter Acquitted. London, November 17. William Saun ders, an ex-member of parliament, who was arrested last week while addressing a crowd in Trafalgar square, was arraigned in court to-day. He was charged with disorder ly conduct in speaking in Trafalgar square and thereby causing a disorderly assemblage. He was also charged with ob structing the police. The crown counsel ad mitted that the charges were unstatutory, and requested that they be dismissed. Mr. Saunders insisted on a conviction. The magistrate, however, dismissed the charges , on the ground that a breach of the prohibitive order of Gen eral Warren, the police superinten dent, did not form a statutory offense. The radicals are jubilant over the result of the arrest and may possibly revoke their decis ion not to meet in Trafalgar square on Sun day. Granted a New Trial. OoiiUmbus, O., November 17. Ebenezer Stanyard, who was to have been executed at the Ohio penitentiary to-morrow night for the murder of Miss Hancock at Youngs town, was returned to the latter place to-day by order of a higher court for a new trial. The decision of the .court grant ing the new trial on error in the former proceeding was received yes- f terday. Stanyard has been telling the re Sorters that he would not be hung whothei e was granted a new trial or not, and there was some curiosity to learn how he expected to escape. When he was taken out pf his cell this morning his person was searched and a case-knife found which had been sharpened to a fine edge on both sides for the work he intended to do as soon as he learned his final fate. The blade of the knife was recurely wrapped in cloth and supported by a string abont his neck. A Missouri Killing. Kansas Crrr, November 17. A Mexico, Mo., special to the Journal says: Six masked men broke into the house of Harris son Scott, a colored farmer living four miles north of here, late last night, and tried to jxagbimout. He resisted desperately with a corn knife and an axe, but was orercome, and after beating him insensible, left. Upon their departure a quarrel arose be tween some of the assailants and Scott's children, and after they had got out of the house they fired a volley. One shot took effect in the abdomen of the stepdaughter of Scott and she will die. . The only'cause known for the brutal outrage is, there had been a number of small fires and petty thieving going on and it was rumored that Bcott, who has a good reputation, was re sponsible for it. The authorities 'are mak ing efforts to apprehend the marauders. Stanley Heard From. Bsussixs, November 17.

The M ayer is Arrested The Unite State Grad Jnrj Iadicta Them oa a Chars of Breakiag Up a Frehlbltlea Jaeetiag. Saw Antonio, Tec, November 18. The first weeks of the prohibition campaign in this state the prohibitionists of San An tonio'endeavored to hold a public meeting. They applied to the mayor and city council to use the plaza but were refuted on the ground that it would possibly be apt to create a disturbance. They then ob tained use of a vacant lot which had been purchased by the United .States as a site for a court house. The gathering was held at night and was largely attended many of the crowd being prohi bitionists. Considerable disorder prevailed but no overt act occurred until Bev. A. H. Sutherland, a Baptist minister of this city, mounted the rostrum. He had spoken scarcely a half dozen sentences when he wa3 struck by a cyclone of rotten eggs, which broke all over him. A small riot was the re sult, and the police were unable to restore order. The meeting was broken up, and the Christians went home vowing vengeance next day. Some arrests fol lowed. The parties were tried before United States Commissioner Stevenson, and bound over to await the action of the Fed eral grand jury. This body, but recently convened, has indicted Hon. Bryan Calla ghan, mayor of the city of San Antonio, and ex-Alderman Lockwcod, for conspiracy to break up a public meeting on United States territory; and Gus Eampman, a million aire's son, and' M. Seelas, an employe of the Lone Star, Brewery, for breaking up a public meeting, Kampman and Seelas are alleged to be the men who threw the eggs. They all gave $1,000 bond each to answer at this term of court. Owing to the official and social prominence of Ihe parties the affair excites much interest throughout the state. The cold-watermen are jubilant over the result of the grand jury investigation. LABOR ORGANIZATIONS UNITE. The Federation of Miners and Mine la borers Forms a Union With the Knights of tabor. Pittsbueg, Pa., November 18. A ctrcular is now being prepared by Chris Evans, sec retary of the Federation of Miners and Mine laborers and will be issued to the 250,000 miners organized and unorganized of the country in a short time. It is in the interest of harmony and unity of action and is one result of the joint meeting of the ex ecutive boards of the Miners' Federation and National District Assembly .186 Knights of Labor, which closed in Columbus yester day. This circular will be signed by the ex ecutive officers of the two organizations. It will provide that no strike shall be ordered in the future without the consent of both or ganizations. In case of a strike the organi zation having the majority in the district where it occurs shall levy upon both oagani zations. The two boards will meet in this city in February to consider the reply of the miners. Immediately following this meeting a general delegate convention of miners in the country will be held in Pitts burg. At this meeting delegates will be elected to the inter-state convention of miners and operators to arrange a scale of wages to be paid in the various districts throughout the country, to go into effect in May, 1888. The interstate meeting of oper ators and miners will be held probably in April, but the date has not yet been fixed. MAT SHUT DOWN. The Bessemer Steel Works te Suspend Work the First of December Thousands of Men Will be Thrown Out of Employ ment. PxTTSBxmo, Pa., November 18. It has been definitely and authoritively stated that all the Bessemer rail manufacturers who have been for 'years working harmoniously together hare decided to order a general suspension of work. It is expected that this will occur on the first of December. The cause of the suspension is the unsatis factory condition of the rail market. Many contracts are expiring and new ones are being sent back in the hope of lower prices. Patrons are willing to place contracts, but the terms are untirely unsatisfactory. The manufacturers say that prices cannot be re duced owing to the high wages and the rates demanded for ore. The suspension .will throw an immense number of men out of employment not only in the mills but in the coke regions of this section. It is esti mated that fully cne-third of the coke out put will be thrown upon the markets, and this will not only reduce the price but may result in a shut down of a large proportion of the oyens, and consequently reduce the number of workmen. The fact that a re duction of wages in the works at Troy has been made, is taken as an indication that wages will be lower next year. The situa tion is decidedly interesting. A Bomb at Columbus. CoiiTTMBUs, Ohio, November 18. Some excitement was caused this exening by the discovery of a bomb at the State Jou"ial office. It consists of an iron pipe about seven inchoB long, both ends closed with hard wood and an oil fuse attached' which was tipped with an ordinary match. It was arranged at the door of the lecal de- Eartment so that a match could be lighted y any one passing and stepping up to the door. The police do not believe that it was a hoax. Thep placed it in a depression at an isolated point and by continuing the fuse burned to the mouth of the bomb without danger. There was no explosion, but what the pipe contains in the way of an explosive substance still remains a mystery. The police will make further investigation, A FATAL RAILROAD ACCIDENT.

There was practically no government. The ministery wa3 not in condition to guide the republican policy. Parliament was aban doned to the direction of the right.

The greatbody of the Knights of Labor are df the opinion that the executive board is a set of bunco steerers. Charles Field, secretary of district assembly No. 24, of Chicago, is secretary of the provisional committee. Each and every member of the committee was to return to the district assembly which sent him to Minneapolis and make his re port. Then they were to report this new scheme. There was fifty-two delegates in the session. When they learn definitely or not their district assemblies will stand by them if they will publish their names. The executive board of the national district as sembly 135, and the executive board of the. national federation of miners and mine la- borers are in session now in Columbus, dis cussing whether they will combine. They muster 77.000 men. District assemblies in Philadelphia, Chicago, Cincinnati, Detroit and this state are now discussing the situa tion. Terrible Battle With a Whale. Pbovinoetown, Mass., November 19. The whaling steamer "Lizzie N.," Captain West, which has been engaged in the finback whale fishery, on the eastern coast this season, on October 6, hen about fifteen miles east southeast from Seguin Island, off the coast of Maine, saw a large whale of that species and attempted its capture. A boat was lowered and manned by Captain West, his mate and four seamen. Captain West, with a large, heavy whale gun, in which was an ex plosive bbmb lance, took the bow ol the boat, while the mate steered. Upon approach ing the whale it was seen that he would be an ugly customer to deal with, as he showed no inclination to run, but kept slow ly moving around evidently waiting to be attacked. When the boat was near enough to warrant a shot, Captain West fired the gun, but as the sea was rough the motion of the boat de stroyed the accuracy of his ami. The whale was badly wounded, but not in any vital part. The whale then made for the boat, and in passing under it struck it with his flukes, throwing it some thirty feet into the air with its crew. As the boat descended, the whale again struck it with his tail and completely demolished the boat and killed one of the crew, Jacob Klock. cut ting him completely in two. The whale then commenced to bite and strike with his tail at the pieces of the boat, killing two more men, Neal Olsen and Chris. Johnson, who were supporting , themselves on pieces of the wreck. Captain West, the mate and the other men were safely taken aboard the steamer, and another boat was lowered to capture the monster. Then the whale attacked the steamer. By a quick turn of the rudder the steamer cleared him by a few feet. This oc curred a second time, and the swell which was created by the whale's tail back into the water knocked all on board off their feet. By throwing over an immense cask, at which the whale, thinking it was the ship, kept bucking away, the captain was enabled to get a shot with the bomb lance and finally the whale was killed. Had the Other Fellow's Clothes On. Lzavenwobth, Kan., November 19. On the 8th of November three young men named Sohn Praeder, Ed Millory and Jim Butler left here in a skiff, going down the Missuri river, intending to spend several weeks below K nsas City hunting. Nothing had been heard of them by their parents un til yesterday, when Praeder ' returned dressed in a suit of clothes belonging to Mil lory. When asked concerning the where abouts of the other two boys he stated they stopped at Kansas City, and Millory and 'Roberts insisted upon going into the city; that he did not care to go, and just before separating the two former said to him that if they did not return he could have all the effects to dispose of as he saw fit. Praeder further stated that they did not return that day and the next, and he pawned the guns to get enough money to return home with, and that he cut the skiff loose and let it drift down the river. ' Praeders story was so im probable that a warrant, charging him with petit larceny was sworn out, and he will be held until information can be obtained 01 the whereabouts of Mellory and .Roberts, many believing that they have been foully dealt with, A Fatal Ballroad Accident.

Immediately after the shock was felttha Scholten's passengers, all of whom had re tired for the night, rushed on deck in their nightgowns. The boats were promptly or dered to be lowered, but it was found that only two were available. The three others were useless and were not lowered. , The water rushed swiftly through the hols in the bow, and a terrible scene ensued. The panic stricken passengers uttered piercing shrieks, and many fell on their knees and prayed aloud. Little children clung to their mothers, who themselves were shrieking with terror. The officers ware, cool and self-possessed, and remained -sev." the bridge to the last. Several persons pro-, cured life belts and leaped intothe'sea. Within twenty minutes of the Bhock the "Scholten" was engulfed. All those who had put on life belts floated and were rescued by the boats rrom the steamer "Ebro,' which cruised around until i o'clock in the morning. Many of the rescued lost wives, husbands, brothers and sisters. The sur vivors were supplied with clothes, and ev-j erything needful was done to insure their comfort. According to the latest statement there were 210 passengers on board the Scholten; 132 are drowned or missing. The first mate and fourth engineer have been recognized among the dead. The Scholten lies four miles from the admiralty pier. Her three masts are visible. She is in a position danr gerous to navigation. A buoy and light have been placed on the wreck. THE OTHEB BIDS. Doveb, November 21. Eighty persons in all have been saved from the wrecked steamer "W. A. Scholton." It is the uni versal feeling that the fault of the colision rests with the steamer "Rose Mary." A Kansas Killing. ABTT.Tare, Kan., November 21. Saturday last the remains of a man was found on the premises of John Gillette, a farmer living in Hope township, Dickinson county. Sheriff Thompson, of Marion county, was tele graphed for Saturday, and with several resi dents of Marion Center identified there mains as those of John Goul,who left Marion Center two months ago in company with Thomas morgan, a worthless fellow. Goul had fallen heir to $10,000, and Mor gan, knowing this, coaxed him. to embark in some busness scheme. They went to Lost Springs, obtained a rig and started for a farm house several miles distant. About four hours afterward Mor-' gan returned alone saying 'that his, friend had got on the train at a tank several miles op the road and gone to Salina to see his girl, Morgan went away from Marion and roamed around the country for a couple of weeks and then returned dressed in new- clothing and supporting jewelry, he also had money and paid several debts, he then disappeared. When the remains were found, the flesh had been com pletely picked off by coyotes, leaving noth ing but the bare bones. A bullet hole was found back of the left ear. They were iden. tified, however, as those of Goul through a peculiarity of his teeth and also by the clothing which was found near the spot. At an inquest held yesterday, the jury rendered a verdict that John Goul came to his death, caused by a pistol or gun snot wound inflicted by Thomas Morgan. Warrants have been issued for the murder er's arrest and the officers are now on his track. A Peaceful Meeting. London, November 2h The enormous crowd which attended the meeting at Hyde Park yesterday, was unexpectedly orderly and also astonishing well appearing. 'Ihe Bpeakers took especial pains to guard against disorder, by advising their hearers to com mit no act of violence, but to trust their leaders to fight the battle in the house of commons. The crowd as a whole displayed an air of respectability surpassing 'that of any gathering of a similar character and purpose assembled in London for many years, and the few policemen present had practically nothing to do. These were sta tioned near the stand, and apparently for the purpose of reminding the crowd of their presence and functions, rather than that of quelling disorder, for there were not enough of them had the crowd been turbulent. The scene was a weird one, the crowd being packed around the stand with up turned faces, and its outer edge lost to view in the dense fog that overhung the park. Not more than half of those present could get within hearing of the speakers, but the re mote ones appeared, to be satisfied with the fact that they had held a meeting without molestation. To Form a Ministry. Pabis, November 21. M. Clemenceau had an interview with President Grevy this morn ing and informed him that he was ready to form a cabinet. He said, however, that be was bound to indicate to the president that there were other elements besides the minis terial question to complicate the situation. Pabis, November 21. Replying to M., Clemenceau, President Grevy said that for irany reasons he desired to retire to private lite, out it was his desire to quit the Elysee palace with honor. Furthermorer he would remain in office until things were so arranged that he could take his departure with dignity. He felt that this was due to his past life and the office he held. He feared he was setting a bad prece dent. He referred to M. Wilson as a vic tim of a political intrigue against himself. The conference was renewed in thp evening when M. Clemenceau, Floquet, Goblet -and DeFrycinct each declined to accept the task oi forming a ministry. Prohibitionists in Wisconsin. Minneapolis", Minn.. November 21.
