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

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. This morning Mr. Byrnes pre
sented the evidence that he had obtained
againit Most for incendiarism and asked
that the grand jury nnd an indictment
against him. 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.
As this is the second time he will, probably
get the full extent of the law, which is one
year's imprisonment and fine.
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.

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
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.
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,

of government was made by M.
Clemenceau. Premier Rouvier demanded
that the debate on the subject be adjourned
to the 24th in the interest of the measure fox
the conversion of the public debt. M.
Clemenceau said it was a singular method
of reassuring holders of public
funds to tell them that they should live
in peace until the 24th, and to promise that
there would then be a crisis such as bad
never before occurrffcL The public he de
clared had too long awaited explanation.
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. Law
officers of state and police were in conflict,
and the administrative order was complete.

New Yobk, November 19. John Morri
son, of the Carpet Weavers' District assem
bly of Knights of Labor, got back to town
yesterday from the carpet weaver's conven
tion at Amsterdam. He was asked how the
new movement in the Knights of Labor
against the executive board was getting on.
"When it is ready to spread the whole busi
ness before the world," he said, "the
general officers of Knights will be thorough
ly frightened. Already we haye represen
tatives in three quarters of the states of the
union. So far as I have learned
hundreds of local assemblies and
dozens of district assemblies have
refused to pay any more money for the sup
port of the present administration. 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

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
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.

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

They went to Lost Springs, obtained a rig
and started for a farm house several miles
distant. About four hours afterward Mor-'

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,

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
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.
