The venerable apostle of temperance sat in the center of the plat form in a big rocking chair which was covered with roses. Especial honor was raid General Dow because the gathering delegates were celebrating the forty-third anniversary of the signing of the first pro hibitory law in Maine. General Wager Swaine, of this city, presided &t the meet ing. Father Murphy, of Montreal, offered the opening prayer. Dr. Joseph Cook, of Boston, was the principal speaker. His ad dress was a review of "Sixty Years of Temperance Agitation; What It Has Ac complished." He paid a high tribute to the work done by Gen. Neal Dow in the campaigns for prohibition In Maine.

General Dow accepted the address,' and In a very clear, distinct and silvery voice said: "It will not be expected that I should reply to this address or to the many admirable things said about, myself. It would be a very difficult tiling to do so, lecause I do not feel that I have done any thing to. entitle me to so much honor. I have no words to present my appreciation." Continuing. General Dow told of the effect of prohibition in Maine and of the good work being done to secure universal pro hibition, "in that State," he said, "an en tire generation has grown up without hav ing seen a grog shop or known the tate of rum. In three-quarters of our territory the rum trafllc is unknown. There are many good men and intelligent men who declare that prohibition can never win. I answer, yes. it will win. and can name the day. It is whfcu the church wakes u; from its lethargy. When the Christians of this country say to the liquor traffic 'go,' and vote 'go.' Then it will go." Among the prominent persons who oc cupied seats on the platform were Governor Tillman, of South Carolina; Hon. William rantels, of Baltimore: Col. II. II. Hadley, of New York; L S.

In speaking of the response to the call, Governor Matthews said yesterday after noon that an unusually large percentage of the soldier boys responded. He thought at least 90 per cent, of those whose names appeared upon the rosters of the different companies had reported for service and gone wltn tnelr companies. There were a few who were unable to go on account of sick ness and a few others who were out of reach of the summons and did nst know that a call had been Issued. Yesterday morning two young soldiers reported at the ottlce of the Adjutant-general for orders. They said they were employed In the coun try about five miles from the city and did. not get word of the call till half past 7 o'clock last night, after the troops had de parted. They were ready to proceed at once to join their company and asked for transportation. They were told that their services would not be needed and were , ex cused, i - .' A captain of one of the local companies suggested a doubt as to his ability to get all of his men to the Statehouse grounds in time to depart. He was asked how many he thought he could get, and be answered about twenty-five. "When you .get those twenty-five send them after the others," was the next order, "ana tell them to bring the others If they have to drag them." It was not found necessary to drag them. - One-half of the battery was kept here and drilled with a Gatllng gun yesterday. It was expected that It would be found necessary to send this reserve to Brazil yesterday but no reports of disturbances at that point were received at the Adjutant-general's office. , LITTLH SEWS AT 'HEADQUARTERS. r The Office of the Governor-ami Al-Jutnnt-General Open Venlerdny.- ' In the Adjutant-general's office peace and Quiet reigned all day yesterday, where the day and night before there had been ex cited animation. . The appearance of the office was very much that of a room where a Democratic primary had been held when Charles Taylor appeared there at 9 o'clock yesterday morning. The floor was strewn with bits of paper and hundreds of small cards and upon the -desks everything was topsy turvy. Upon a corner of one of them lay a great stacK of telegraph "blanks, in readiness to receive any important bit of information to be communicated to the seat of war. About ' 2 o'clock in the afternoon, a re rrter dropped Into the room and ound Mr. Taylor, at parade rest In fatigue uni form. 1. e., coat and vest .off vand feet pcci.ed upon a desk, smoking a good cigar and enjoying the cool breezed that blew through the room. Morris . Defrees was present also, -but his manner was "alto gether that of a civilian. In response to the questions of the ' reporter, Mr. Taylor said no word had been received from the seat of war other than that the troops had arrived at their destination. Several mem bers of the different companies of this city who were left behind when the troops de parted on Saturday evening reported, at the office for orders, and were told that they were not needed. About 3 o'clock the Governor came in and looked at one or two telegrams handed him by Mr. Taylor, but said there w:as nothing of Importance In them to give out. W. W. Robbins. major of the First Brigade, In diana Legion, came in, passed around some good cigars, and the after noon was spent in smoking, joking and conversing about most anything but the trouble which kept the office open dur ing the day yesterday. The Govenror had spent the entire morning in his olhce await ing news from the militia. The quiet which prevailed in the Adjutant-general's office all day yesterday con tinued last evening. The telegrams received from the seat of war all brought news that affairs were moving nicely, and there was no probability of bloodshed. The three companies from this city, together with companies irom Aurora, Aew Albany. An- Fonvllle and Greencastle went to She'iburn General McKee telegraphed headquarters in this city that about six miles from that place they found the track badly dam aged.

Cummlngs and adopted: "Whereas, the Governor of this State has ordered the militia to the seat of the trou bles arising from the contest between the coal operators and the miners, therefore, be it "Resolved, That this condition of affairs arises from the fact that the coal mines of this country have become the property of a few soulless corporations which neither obey law nor respect men. "Resolved, That the miners are worthy of our unqualified support In their efforts to secure living wages for their work, and, granting all the Irregularities that have been charged against them to be true, they have done nothing worthy of death. "Resolved, That Governor Matthews, as the Instrument of oppressive monopoly, to day stands as a pitiable spectacle of a vi cious system of legislation and government, which should be entirely overthrown at the ballot box. "Resolved. That we demand the immedi ate recall of the troops." The chairman of the meeting was In structed to issue a call for a mass meet ing, to be held in the courthouse next Wednesday evening, to express publicly the attitude of the citizens of Indianapolis upon this subject.

All men not necessary to guard approaches to ,Bull Hill and forage for supplies have been massed about the fortification, and their number Is slightly over 1,800. To-day the strikers made their last forage for arms, ammunition and supplies. Fearing a siege, they have rilled hundreds of beer kegs with water and stored them In the fort. The towns of Victor, Anaconda, Mound City and other places are In the possession of squads of armed strikers. The plan of the strikers Is to meet the deputies and make as strong a stand as posslDle, and, if necessary, retreat to Bull Hill, where a desperate stand will be made. The deputies will be commanded In the field by V. J. Palmer. The miners to-day hailed with delight the words of Governor Walte In response to Sheriff Bowers's demand for troops, and they now look forward to a battle, the end of which will be for them either vic tory or extermination. H. E. Woods, president of the Woods Investment Company, was taken in charge at 9 o'clock by a large body of miners and carried up to the fort on Bull Hill. His wife was present when he was taken, and Is almost frantic The men told her that she need not worry, as they, would turn Mr. "Woods loose in the morning. ..Business men here think, look into each other's faces and see nothing but dread and feai. The cause of the kidnaping is not known. A Danger Point in Ohio. BELLAIRE, O., June 3. A correspondent who has just arrived from the seat of the miners' troubles at Wheeling creek says all the conditions are ripe there for a bloody encounter.

The company Is making preparations to execute its coal shipping contracts, and It Is anrounced that trafns will be started soon as it is lisrht enough to run without dancer of obstruction. The miners are thoroughly ugly and will not listen to rea son. The Governor has refused to call out the troops unless there should be actual violence committed. Wnite's Profane LiingnnRe. . COLORADO SPRINGS, Col., June 3.- Governor Walte and the mine owners held a conference here last night. Thymine, owners consented to pay the wages de manded by the strikers, but refused to em ploy only union men. When informed of this Governor Walte said: "When the mine owners appoint a man to arbitrate then I am ready to do so. I will not ar bitrate with every lawyer in Colorado Springs." Sheriff Bowers served the Governor with official notice calling for troops. Walte re plied, shaking his fist: "If the mine owners want peace they can have it in five minutes." - - FAY AT THE CAPITAL.

" WASHINGTON, June -'-General" Fry, who, it was reported, was called here to take command of the commonweal, claims that Gahin's, corps, which reached here last Thursday, 230 strong,-and very lean and hungry, was only his advance guard, and that he has 3.000 men all told on the march from various points West. Fry vis ited Coxey, Browne and Jones in the Dis trict jail, and did not seem very favorably Impressed with the fate which had met his predecessors. When asked if he had assumed command of the whole common weal movement, he said no. Mr. Coxey had made no formal offer of the command to him, and he did not care to take so much responsibility should it be offered. He had offered an amendment to Coxey's good roads bill, making, it obligatory on each county and municipality to furnish work to the unemployed. His plan Is to give work to the unemployed by construct ing Irrigation works, and he says Repre sentative Maguire, of California, is in sym-. pathy with him. Rode on a Stolen Train.

The increase of Tartir emigration from southern and eastern Russia has been f,o marked of late as to excite attention and seme anxiety in government circles. No overt motive has been alleged by the emi grants, who have deserted the villages and districts Inhabited by their ancestors for centuries. One correspondent, professing to have an intimate knowledge of the Tartar nature, attributes the exodus to three causes: First, an order sent from St. Pe tersburg to tne provinces that, in stormy, snowy weather, bells should be rung with a view to guide benighted travelers to shel ter. The Tartars have no bells in their villages, and the order Indiscriminately cir culated amom; thflln was. interpreted as aa Injunction to hang bells on their minarets, a bell betng an abomination to a Mussul man. Second, a circular was issued by the Ministry to the effect that In the winter children should be baptized In tepid water. TheTartar mothers, hearing of this, took frignt and hid their children away from all strangers, believing again that forcible con version to Christianity was intended. In the third place, a high official was sent to collect arrears of taxation. Unable to make head or tail out of the hieroglyphic ac counts presented. to him. he requested those who had paid to put a cross opposite their names. This was forthwith interpreted by the Tartars to mean advanced proselytism, and the rumors of these repeated attempts at Interference with Mussulman observ ances and prejudices have led to the flight of whole Tartar villages across the border to Turkey and Asia. PAUL 110 1' R GET. Tle Xew Immortal" a French Xovel 1st of the lltffkest Order. Brooklyn Eagle. Two vacancies were filled last Thursday In the French Academy. Paul Bourget was chosen as the successor of Taine ana Albert Sorrel was elected to the chair formerly occupied by Maxlme Ducamp. Of the two, Bourget is, of course, the better known, especially in the United States. He is easi ly entitled to a foremost place among the French authors of the present generation, and at the age of forty-two has achieved a reputation which, it Is believed, will be more enduring than that of most of his rivals. His literary activity covers a period of twenty years. His poetry Is es sentially that of the dilettanti school, and his philosophical studies have been too cir cumscribed to attract much attention, but as a novelist he has displayed qualities of the first order of excellence, lie has aimed to analyze the relations of men and women as he found them and,, like Zola, but to a less extent, he has not hesitated to explore the sewers in search of what. he believed to be the true values of life'as the French understand them. He has strlved to be rigidly scientific, and it is a pity that his energies have found their main outlet in the exploration of no more attractive theme than that which underlies every French novel of the period. Indeed, not only in France, but everywhere else, that fiction is now set down as feeble which does notjtreat of the relation of -the sexes. There is, however this important difference between the French school and its Imitators among the men $nd women of England and America, that the former have handled the subject with the knife of the surgeon, while the latter have had no higher motive than appeal to the emotional. If not to the erotic phases of existence. The French novelists nave not cared how much they shocked the moral sensibilities, and perhaps they have not been read the less on both sides of the Atlantic on that account. It is certain that in or der to suit popular taste- a pungent flavor of tobacco is highly essential. Perhaps that is why it is now regarded as out of date to eliminate the youthful mind from all consideration in the preparation of novels of the "ad vanced" school. We have reached the point where old-fashioned love making is considered entirely too insipid for refined and intelligent minds. We have reached the point at which women insist on being addressed with the same directness on all subjects as characterizes the conversation of men. They want to call an ace an ace and a spade a spade, and if we bave not j-et attained that stage of "development" at which the modern novelist thinks it ap propriate to devote several chapters to quotations from a medical Dictionary it is not because the tendency is not running in that direction. No heroine is to be serious ly considered who is not ttrong minded enough to have grasped the wlole problem of human nature from beginning to end, and if her mind does not run to abstruse philosophy or if she does not insist that men are to be judged by the same stand ards as women or If she does not possess a diploma from .several universities, to say nothing of sundry hospitals, she must cer tainly belong to an ancient and forgotten school of fiction. What is true of novels is . to a certain decree true of the stage, and the second Mrs. Tanquerays of the drama are those who secure the most criti cal inspection . of "polite society." For all of this it is not fair to hold the French school responsible. Whatever Zola and Bourget may have written they have not done half the harm to the younger minds of the day that has been done and is being done by the prolific pens of women who are breaking through all the barriers which formerly held their sex in reserve.' To be taken to a pig sty by Zola is -luite a differ ent thing frorfl being told to scorn the sentimentality which used to pervade the relations between the sexes .nd It ia quite a different thing from being asked to be lieve that our daughters, whatever their training. are prepared to have dumped upon them air the monstrous theories of the "advanced" order of feminine novel ists. It is absolutely impossible to tell to what we are drifting." By and by the education of no school girl will be con sidered complete until she has accompanied the coroner to half a. dozen autopsies, and no novel rwiH be strong or powerful unless it sneer at. Christianity or reverse the nor mal relations of men and wo Tien. I.XDIAX SCHOOL SPOILS. Dr. Hailninn on Some .Recent Changes , Will Have I1U Way. Correspondence Washington Post. The communication printed In Wednes day's Evening Post, and the editorial com ment, in last evening's issue reflecting upon the removal of the efficient. clerk and farm er at Seger Colony Indian school in Okla homa, were shown to Professor Kallmann, the superintendent of Indian education, to day, and he was asked whether he had any explanation to offer for these remov als, the positions of the two victims be ing under his jurisdiction. "The changes mentioned in the Evening Post," he answered, "were made without my knowledge. On learning, accidentally, of these -changes I lmmedlatey addressed an earnest protest to the Secretary of the Interior, who has the matter now under consideration." "By what authority could any one in the Indian Bureau make removals like these over your head?" ""It Is claimed by certain clerks that the appointments in the unclassified service do not come under my jurisdiction, and that this applies with particular force to the clerks. On the other hand. I maintain that If, as has been announced, the Indian school service is to be conducted on a high plane of efficiency, integrity and decency, all other considerations must be strenu ously excluded, and that it will be Impossi ble for me to carry out the broad and gen erous policy outlined for me by the Secretary- of the Interior unless all appoint ments in the service, from superintendents down to night watchmen, are placed on the same footing, and that for this purpose all appointments must be equally subject to my nomination or approval. Nothing more nor less than this will do, and I shall not submit to any abridgment of my re sponsibility in this respect.'. "Where do you draw the line on partisan-, ship in appointments outside of the classl-' fled service?" "I do not object so much to the practice of considering party affiliations as a deter mining factor, all other factors being the same, in making appointments where va cancies exist (fir where removals have be come necessary for pome cause, but to make party affiliations the chief factor, outweighing all others, is sure to demoralize and degrade the sendee. To identify one's self with any party requires neither great Intelligence nor a high degree of efficiency or goodness. In this respect the meanest has equal chances with the best, and to base continuance in the service on a matter so wholly divorced from the character and personality of the incumbent must neces sarily lower Its tone and hasten its decay." This Is the boldest stand eVer taken by an officer in Prof. Kallmann's position. The disgraceful prostitution of even the school service of the Indian Bureau to partisan purposes at varius times in the past was promised a strong and effective check by Secretary Hoke Smith when he chose Dr. llailmann after a long and care ful search. He would never have obtained the man of his choice on any other terms, and it is well remembered by all who were Interested in the appointment that the Secretary assured Dr. llailmann that he should have complete control of the school service and would be held solely responsible for the result. The Professor accepted the responsibility In good faith. It does not appear that the Secretary can do anything now except to sustain Dr. Hailmann against the cowardly meddlers In the Indian Bureau who are trying to break down his adndnistration by striking at it in the dark. It Is safe to assert that they would not have dared -to make the changes at the Seger school in the face of Dr. Hailmann's opposition. These were made when his back was turned, undoubt edly to prevent his making an issue of them before the Secretary. Story Told ly Senator Itrlce, Washington Letter in Boston Advertiser. According to Senitor Brice there is only one qualification for a presiding officer in the Senate. He tells It himself in this wav: "I was sitting in the chair one day and became both weary and hungry. So 1 caiiel Senator Berry, of Arkansas, to the chair, ami gave him some instructions, as this was the first time that he had ever pre sided over the Senate. I told him that there was only one thing to remember. When some person is making a speech, and several other persons are on their feet trying to get the floor, and they have been trying for several minutes, and Senator Harris rises, no matter on what pretext, give him the Moor at once and declare the others all out of order. That Is all there J Is to presiding in the Senate nowadays. Berry roiiowed out my instructions and ma4o a model presiding otlker," AlltSEMCXTS.

A Pl'ZZLIXG "FIXD." A L.1 vln ht Snake Found In nn A pinr entlyv Solid Piece of Stone. Pittsburg Dispatch. One of thoge peculiar and puzzling ex ceptions that seem to bid' defiance to tha laws of nature, as we understand them, was frtven to the writer by Mr. Matt Mc Laughlin, of lieaver Falls, a well-known construction foreman in the service of tht Pittsburir & Lake Erie Hail road Company. Some years ago this gentleman had charge of a gang of men blasting a cut on tha Chesppeake & Ohio railroad in Cable coun ty. West Virginia, at a point near the lino of Huntington. A blast had resulted in a large fall of sandstone rock, and the men were engagtM In splitting and sledging the larRer pieces down to handling capacity, when a compact piece of stone, yielding to the sledge, disclosed a small, smooth, egg shaped cavity, in which was. coiled up a striped snake perhaps ten inches long, and with a most vicious disposition to spring and bite. How are we to account for "such a phe nomenon? Mr. McLaughlin declares tb stone showed not a particle of fractura previous to breaklne, the oval cavity, about as large as a small ordinary egg, had ab solutely no other communication than such as the pores of the rock afforded, yet herj was a specimen of a living ophidian, full of life and charged with the propensity of his species. A host of perplexing question present themselves. Life, as we understand It, Is a som&hlng, a result of conditions, a finely maintained and highly developed elec trical manifestation sustained by food con version, but what, during the many thou sands of years that this humble life form was thus imprisoned, maintained It? It was not always a creature ten inches long. It tegan and must have developed, but did it have this development when tho sand was elastic, and did its wiggling pro duce the cavity that formed at leaft a ten-thousand-year prison? It either did this or the egg that prouuoeo it was caugm In the fcoft sand, which could harden only with time and pressure. It is not tho snake that !e of any partic ular interest, but the principle to which the snake serves as an illustration. It is to bo regretted that the entire case. rock, classi fication, the reptile and all the accessories were not made the subject of a scientifla scrutiny of the most rigid character, as on ly in this way can such a circumstance assume its full value. The workmen, after taunting the little reptile a while to soa its exhibition of anger, destroyed it. never thinking of Hs most wonderful history anl allowing It time to see how It would adjust Itself to the new environment. It is llttia things that often point the way to tre mendous consequences, and he was wlsi that enjoined us not to despise "the day of small thinKs' There are recorded instances of the find ing of living toads imbedded In cavities ol stone, and if ophidian and batracian life may be tnus indefinitely maintained, it il lustrates that when waste remains within the recuperative capacity, then physical ln solvecy, otherwise death, may, under favor able conditions, be indefinitely postponed.

The commissioner Insists that und'T his plan It was to cost but $100. and he is positive the board would save money by carrying it out.
