Her. J.T. McFarland's Expressed
Opinions Are Attacked.
Wilmington Conference Calls
Him to Account.
HE IS TOO ADVANCED.
Sethodists Object to His Posi
tion on "Higher Criticism."
Tass Kesolutions Denouncing
Sunday School Journal.
Dr. J. T. McFarland. formerly pastor
of ihe First Methodist church in To
j.eka, now corresponding secretary of
the editorial board of the Sunday
School Journal, a national religious
periodical, has been denounced by the
: Wilmington Methodist conference of
New Jersey for publishing criticisms of
the Sunday School Lessons in the Jour
nal, denominated by the conference to
be not only incompatible with the doc
trinal standards of Methodism, but as
tending toward infidelity and atheism.
Dr. McFarland is attacked for hav
ing joined the ranks of the preachers
who believe in so-called "higher criti
cism." The Wilmington conference is the
state conference of New Jersey and ex
erts a wide influence all over the Meth
odist circles of the United States. Dr.
McFarland was vigorously flayed, and
disapproval and protest were registered
in a resolution against him and his
Dr. A. W. Lightbourne of Middle
town, Del., led the fight on the former
Topeka preacher. He said in part in
"There is no more important matter
that could come before us for consid
eration than this. When Dr. McFar
land's name was presented to the gen
eral conference for this office there
were objectoins, which were passed
upon his higher critical views. 'High
er critical' views have no place in
Methodist literature, but it has the
least right in our Sunday school litera
ture. A large part of the complaint is
against the 'men employed by Dr. Mc
Farland, but Dr. McFarland himselfls
'higher critical,' and has stated that 'in
the birth of Jesus Christ his divinity
was utterly humanized.' "
In continuing his attack Dr. Light
bourne went on to say that in his judg
ment this was one of the most gigantic
betrayals of trust in the history of the

rupted to say: "I believe it too; I

Rev. Mvers and Dr. Rhodes, mem
bers of trie Sunday School Journal
staff, employed by Dr. McFarland, were
present at the conference. But it was
plainlv evident that at the conclusion
of Dr. Lightbourne's speech, the con
ference as a whole was indignant, and
that small svmpathy would be accord
ed Rev. Myers and Dr. Rhodes. They,
however, took occasion to defend their
course. Rev. Myers stated that since
the charges were not specific that it
would naturally be difficult to answer
Dr. Lightbourne immediately took up
the matter egain and stated that he
would be willing to furnish any num
ber of quotations from recent issues of
the Sunday School Journal and make
his point good.
"Read them," came from the audience.
"Let's hear them." Dr. Lightbourne
read a number cf extracts in support of
his position. General cries of "Blas
phemy." and "Sacrilege," came from
the conference body. Dr. Rhodes then
took the floor and stated that the trou
ble lay in that Dr. McFarland's writ
ings were misinterpreted, and that he
had no apologies to offer for anything
published which might be construed as
Then the conference got busy and
passed a resolution on the subject. More
from it will probably be heard. Dr.
McFarland is known for his fighting
qualities. The resolution follows:
"Resolved, That we. the Wilmington
conference, now assembled, do hereby
express and record our hearty disap
proval and most earnest protest against
the publication of any and all higher
critical sentiments respecting the in
carnation and divine sonshlp of Jesus
Christ, such as were contained in the
Funday School Journal for January,
February and March, 1906, and that
this matter be brought to the attention
of the board of manage of the Sun
day School union, requesting them to
Investigate the matter and to urge Dr.
McFarland, our correspondingsecretary,
to desist from the use of such danger
ous materials, that our boys and girls
be not poisoned hut saved.
STATE ADMITS IT WAS WRONG.
Rent a Man to Penitentiary for Steal
The great state of Kansas will go be
(ore the supreme court tomorrow and
confess judgment against it in the
habeas corpus proceeding started by
John Fraser against Warden Haskell
of the state penitentiary.
Fraser was convicted in Cherokee
county of stealing, but the amount of
his theft was only $4.90. For some
mysterious reason, the judge imposed a
penitentiary sentence, which can't be
done in a petit larceny charge.
In his statement which will be filed
with the supreme court, Warden Has
kell will admit that he has no right to
hold Fraser: that the sentence was
erroneous, and that Fraser should be
taken back to Cherokee county and re-
lentenced to a term in the county jail.

CERE'S SENSATIONAL RUN.
Frenchman Has "Spurt" of 110 Points,
Beating Out Schaefer.
Chicago. May 11. Louis Cure won the
afternoon game of the 1S-2 balkline bil-
lard tournament from Jacob Schaefer
by a sensational run of liO which car
ried him to the necessary 500 mark.
When Cure started on the run which
won him the game Schaefer needed but
!i points. The game was remarkable
n that three runs of more than 100 were
made. Cure counted 112 billiards in his
first inning, during which time he show
ed almost perfect mastery of the balls.
Beside his runs of 112 and 110, Cure
counted 79 billiards in his sixteenth in
ning. Schaefer's high run was made
in the eleventh inning when he collected
107 points by beautiful close play. He
had the balls in perfect position at that
time, but a miscue put an end to the
run. Previously in the sixth inning
Schaefer had made a run of 94, most of
the points being made by carrying the
balls down the center of the table and
back again. This run was terminated
by a kiss in an attempt at a masse for
position. Schaefer's next inning added
71 to his score, which gave him the lead
by twenty-two points, but Cure took
the lead again in the tenth with a pret
ty 40. Then followed Schaefer's high
run. 107, and from then to the twenty-
first when Cure found the balls in posi
tion to his liking and ran out the game,
Schaefer held the lead.
The game for closeness and rapidity
of change was the most remarkable of
the tournament so far, while the akill
txhibited by both men kept :he big
audience on tip-toe. The score:
Cure 112 3 1 34 32 5 1 0 0 40 3 22 0 10 0
79 1 32 2 13 110. Total, 500; high run, 112;
average, 23 17-21.

TEWFTK TOLD TO GO WAY BACK.
British Ambassy Wouldn't Listen to
Talk of Compromise.
Constantinople, May 11. Tewfik
Pasha, the foreign minister, called at
the British embassy yesterday and
made proposals In regard to the Tabah
questions, which Ambassador O'Con
nor unhesitatingly rejected. The
pasha was informed that any compro
mise suggestions were quite inadmiss
ible, and that nothing less than ab
solute compliance with the British
demands would prevent drastic action.
The ambassador also warned the min
ister that time was running short and
compelled him to be under no misap
prehension in regard to the determi
nation of Great Britain to enforce the
Turkish evacuation of Egyptian terri
tory to the Sinia peninsula and a Joint
delimitation of the frontier. Tewfik
Pasha returned to the palace and an
immediate meeting of the council of
ministers was summoned.

Philadelphia, May 11. "We can

for ten years, and if they are put in
the right place they will prove a ben

gration Commissioner F. P. Sargent
last night while discussing the immi
gration problem at the semi-annual
meeting of the Philadelphia Baptist
city- mission. The American people.
he said, "are greatly stirred up today
over the influx of immigrants. I do
not think there is any cause for

A pipe line map drawn by W. W.
Tarbell, of Philadelphia, was intro
duced. It was said that it discloses
secret lines unknown to any except
the officials' of the company. The map
will be verified at the hearing in Phila
delphia next week.
E. P. Ripley, presidt of the Atchi
son. Topeka & Santa Fe railway, was
then called to the stand. He was
asked concerning agreements of the
railroad company with a number of
companies alleged to be subsidiary
companies of the Standard Oil com
pany. "The first contract," said President
Ripley, "was with a man in Kansas
City to lay a pipeline on our right of
way for $40 a mile. The next was
for a line from Kansas City to Joliet,
and for this we received $50 a mile. We
got million dollars for hauling the
pipe. I was very sorry to see the pipe
line built, but as it had to be done I
did the best I could out of it."
"Is there any contract between your
road and the Standard or any of the
subsidiary companies for furnishing the
road with lubricating oil?" asked Com
"I understand so. Our purchasing
agent can tell you better."
Mr. Ripley declared that two of the
oil companies with which he made
contracts are affiliated with the Stand
ard Oil company.
"Didn't you raise the rate in Kansas
on oil when the pipeline was put in?"
asked Attorney Monnett.
"We did, but we carried oil before
the pipeline was put in,: and we have
carried none since."
He was asked if the rate on gas oil
was not lowered and that on crude oil
raised, and answered that It was.
"When the crude oil was piped the
rate was raised, but the rate on gas oil
was towered, it being shipped; isn't
that so?" '
"Yes." replied President Ripley.
The last witness of the day was M.
Maxon, formerly agent of the Stand
ard Oil company at various places !n
Illinois. He said that the Standard Oil
company, through subsidiary com
panies fought the independent dealers
by reducing rates in their territory,
and although the reductions were not
made in the name of the Standard Oil
company. It was in reality that con
cern which was making them. He
said that the state oil inspectors did
not, except in rare instances, inspect
barrels of oil and that many of them
left their stencils in the hands of the
Standard Oil company over night.

Speaks in Behalf of Oklahoma.
"I have this to say about Oklahoma:
It should be admitted as a state with
out further delay. It should not be
crucified to satisfy the desire for po
litical revenge. Oklahoma and Indian
territory ought to be admitted as a
state, regardless of the action on New
Mexico and Arizona.- The two affairs
should not be linked together. Per
sonally I think t that New Mexico and
Arizona are also ready for statehood.
I believe it is the intent of the consti
tution that a territory shall be ad
mitted as soon as it is able to bear
the financial responsibilities of state-
nooa. . . .
'Oklahoma is fully oualified for
statehood, and ought 'to be admitted
without further delay."

New York Stocks.
Wall St.. New Y'ork. May 11. STOCKS
Prices of stocks at- the opening of the
stock market today started higher than
last night with the dealings on a moder
ate scale and the changes generally nar
row. A rise of 2 points m Anaconda and
of 1 points in Great Northern preferred
were the only exceptions to the average of
small fractional changes. St. Paul was
the only important stock in the list to
show a small decline.
Scarcely half a dozen stocks of specula
tive prominence shared to any decided ex
tent in the early advance. While the gen
eral market was higher traders realized
steadily on recent purchases, especially
Reading, U. P., St. Paul, , Smelting and
tne v. s. steel stocks. Ultimately the
selling of these undermined their advance
progress elsewhere and there was a
general relapse which carried some of the
leaders below yesterday s closing.
Large operations were resumed in Read
ng at an advance of 2 points. The re
sponse in the general market was very
sluggish, but the decline was .checked.
Louisville and Nashville and Central
Leather preferred rose 1 points. Inter
national Pump preferred 3. Virginia Car
olina Chemical 2, Lake Erie and West
ern 2, Chesapeake and Ohio 1 and Tex
as and Pacific and Metropolitan Street
Railway 1 point, consolidated Gas and
National Lead declined.
Bonds were steady at noon.
The development of strength and activ
ity in stocks which had previously been
dull and heavy aroused the midday mar
ket into considerable activity. St. Paul,
Lj. p. and u. H. steel were well represent
ed in the buying in the order named and
there was a good demand also for some of
the southern and soft coal stocks. L. P.
and St. Paul sold 2 points above yester
day's final figures and Norfolk and West
ern, Chesapeake and Ohio and Southern
Railway a point.
