WRECK OF THE DESPATCH.
THE "PRESIDENT'S YACHT" STRAND

Lewes, Del., Oct. 10. Tho United States
steamer Despatch, ashoro on Assatoaguo
Shoal, is totally wrecked. All Hho crew are
safely Innded and housed on tho beach.
Baltimore, Oct. 10. Tho United States
steamer Despatch went ashoro laBt night in a
heavy go!o on the Assatoaguo Shoals, on tho
east coast of Virginia, about sixty miles north
east of Cape Charles. Tho6hoals stretchout
to sea for many miles; the ship struck on tho
outside.
The News in Washington.
The superintendent of tho Hfo saving serv
ice last night received a tolcEram from tho
keeper of the life station at Assateague, Va.,
saying the United States steamer Despatch
was broadside on tho shoals, and wts fast
going to pieces. Her officers and crow were
landed safely and aro now being cared for by
the life saving men.
The Despatch left tho New York Navy
Yaid Friday and was on her way to this
city where she tvas to take on board tho Pres
ident, Secretary Tracy and some officers of
the navy and convey them to tho naval prov
ing grounds down the Potomac to witness ex
periments in testing some of tho armor
pltes for use In the armament of.
the new vessels. Sho was expected
to arrive here Monday, and after
taking the President down the river was
to have been probably placed out of commis
sion, as she is old and in much need of re
pairs. It is impossible to learn here any par
ticulars attending the vessels going ashore,
but it is surmised by naval officers that in her
endeavor to hug the coast closely to avoid tho
heavy gale she got too close in shore, and
when bis positiou was discovered it was too
late to work off with a northeast wind driving
her shoreward.
The Despatch has been used for years past
as a dispatch t oat for tho President and the
faecretary of the Navy, and when not em
ployed in this capacity has been used to con
vey stores and ammunition to and from
navy yards alone the coast. Sho was
built in 1874, and some years later pur
chased by the Government from Henry C.
Smith, Now York stock broker and yachtman,
for9S,000, and afterwards remodeled for the
purpose her name indicates. Her length was
174 feet, beam 25J feet, with a tonnage of 800
tons, and a mean draft of 13 feet. Her speed
was about 12 knots an hour. Her battery
consisted of one three-inch breech-loading
rifler-used mainly for saluting purposes.
Her officers were Lieutenant "W. S. Towles,
commanding.Lieutenants York, Noei and R.
T. Mulligan, Paymaster Heap, Engineer Og
den, and Paesed Assistant Surgeon (jutowood,
with a crew of seventy-flvo men. The Des
patch was Boon to bavo been displaced by tho
Dolphin, now fitting out at Norfolk as a dis
patch boat.
In a Gale, the Sou Running High.
New York, Oct. 10. Immediately after
leaving New York tho steamship ran Into
foul weather. There was a bad wind and an
ugly sea was lunniug. It was decided to
keep tho steamship under tho coast, thus to
escape any bad weather that might have been
kicked up further out by the hur
ricane from Bermuda which has been
making things disairreeablo and dangerous lu
tho Atlantic. Tho weather contiuued to crow
worse, and, when tho vessel struck, was blow
ing, it is reported, quite a mean gale. The
6ea was running hlt;h, with a decided land
swell.
Tho vessel struck, It is reported, head on.
Tho shock came 6omo timo on toward mid
night. Immediately tho sea swept her about
with broad sides on to tho shoals. Tho Des
patch's commander immediately let go tho
anchors, but they did not strike until after the
waves bad beat her well up on tho shoals.
Naval News from China.
v San Francisco, Oct. 10. Captain M. L.
Johnson, of the Navy, who was detached from
tho command of the Monocacy at tho China
station lately, arrived to-day on tho
steamer City of PeltJu, on September S3, said:
'The flagship of tho Chinese squadron was
changed from the Monocacy to tho Charleston,
and Admiral Belkrcup took up his quarters
on tho latter man-of-war. The Monocacy
wont on dry-dock tit Yokohama for repairs,
after which 6he expected to sail for Shanghai.
Up to ten days before the PekinJ sailed, every
thing was reported quiet in tho northern dis
tricts of China. Still there is an unsettled
feeling In those districts, and trouble is likely
to break out afresh at any tlmo." Com
..mander Johnson will proceed to Washington
for orders.

First Sugar Under tho Bounty X.avr.
New Orleans, Oct. 10. Tho Bixty barrels
of new sugar received yesterday, -was tho first
of the season, and was sold as follows: Off
white at 4 and 4, icspectlvely, and one lot
"specky" at 4-i, Last year tho first receipts
brought 7J. The price brought this year was
a disappointment to some members of tho
Exchange who thought that despite tho fact
of the entry of fiee sugar and the bounty
fully five cents would have been realized.
Much Interest was felt In this eugar, tho first

Unification Substantially Completed Tho
Arrangement.
Baltimore, Oct. 10. Tho report that- tho
negotiations with tho English shareholders of
tho Ohio and Mississippi Railroad Company,
for tho unification of tho Baltlmoro and Ohio
Southwestern aud tho Ohio and Mississippi,
have boon substantially completed, is accepted
hero as correct. It is understood that
tho arrangomont contemplatoa putting tho
Ohio and Mississippi into tho very
best physical condition and equipping it
thoroughly from ond to end, involving an ex
penditure of possibly over $3,000,000 on tho
line, and reducing tho rato of interest upon
tho bonds, tho Baltlmoro and Ohio Railroad
Company and the Baltlmoro and Ohio South
western to become responsible for tho re
duced interest.
Tho arrangement also contemplates tho set
tlement of tho difference between tho pre
ferred and the common shareholders of tho
Ohio and Mississippi Company.
As the arrangement contemplates tho secur
ing of all tho monoy requisite for putting tho
Ohio and Mississippi lino in thorough order
and thoroughly equipping it, it Is believed
that its earnings will largo increase and that
its operating expenses correspondingly de
crease, and thus result in advautago to the
shareholders of tho company. The Ohio and
Mississippi has been in need of larger en
gines, of more quipmeut and of a number
of Improvements to the superstructure of Its
road. All this is provided for in tho now ar
rangement. Tho lino will bo put under tho
control of a strong trunk line, tho Baltimore
and Ohio Railroad Company. Therefore, it is
claimed, thero can bo no doubt of tho advan
tages to all tho interests concerned in thus
creating a unit road from St. Louis on the
Mississippi River to the Atlantic seaboard at
Baltimore, Philadelphia, and New York.

Conductor Richardson was held up by a vil-Hanous-loOking
footpad about two blocks
from tho Stato House. The fellow had two
guns in his hands.
Thursday night about the same hour and

THE METHODIST ASSEMBLY
HVEM SESSION OF THE GREAT
COUNCIXi.
Interesting Discussion of tho Influonco
of Scientific Progress on RollglouB
Thought-Reconciling tho Results of
Criticism and Christian Doctrine.
Tho fourth day's session of tho Methodist
Ecumenical Council wasprodided over by Rev.
Dr. William Arthur, of England, who con
ducted the devotional exercises, reading tho
hymn "Thou Loadeth Me." Prayer was
offered by Rev. John Wakefield, of Canada.
Rev. A. S. Hunt, of Now York, one of tho sec
retaries of the American Biblo Society, read a
ecripturo lesson from tho Book of Job.
Through Secretary King tho committee on
business reported several rosolutlous and me
morials whioh were held for consideration at
a later day.
Tho regular programme of tho day was then
taken up, the subject for discussion being
"Tho Church and Scientific Thought."
Tho first eosay was one prepared by Percy
W. Bunting, edit or of the Contemporary Re
view, entitled "The Influence of Modern
Scientific Progress on Religious Thought."
In Mr. Bunting's absence tho paper was read
by Mr. J. B. Slack, of London.
Rev. Dr. Milton S. Terry, of Evanston, 111.,
Bpoko on tho attitude of the church toward
tho various phases of unbelief.
Rev. W. T. Davidson, of England, deliv
ered an address on tho subject of tho Bible
and Modern Criticism.
Rev. Dr. Downrt, of Toronto, held that tho
great problem confronting the Church was
the necessity of reconciling the results of
criticism and Christian doctrine Ho did not
like anything that hinted that faith was to go
on If sclonco contradicted it, for genuine
science was actual truth. He could not ad
mit that Christ was a product of evolution.
Rev. Frank Ballard, of England, said
if any man did not believe In science ho did
not believe In God had been Bald before, but
it was equally true now. He had been told
Amoiica was twenty years behind England in
this matter. Living men and women could
aot be understood without scientific knowl
edge, and that knowledgo should be wel
comed. There was danger of the church
playing the ostrich and by hiding Its head try
to ignore tho things outside. Ho did not be
lieve that unbelief was a matter of tho heart.
Hear! hear! Ho had had letters from earn
est tbouehtful sceptics that were as full of
longing and desire for tho truth as any over
seen.
Dr. Buckley, of New York, paid a tribute
to Mr. Bunting's paper which showed that re
ligion was now and ever would be not a mat
tor of induction, deduction, or observation,
but of faith and heart. Science could give no
balp as to tho fundamental questions of re
lion. Christianity was as false as the wildest
superstition unless the birth of Christ was the
result of tho Divine operatlou upon a woman
without the agency of man. llear! Hear!
Nine-tenths of what the high critics brought
forward had been a subject of study by Biblo
Btudents for twenty-fivo years. The.troublo
lay in tho arrogance of tho critics. Tho trial
of Dr. Briggs had resulted, not from what ho
held, but from tho arrogant and domineering
manner in which ho sought to force those
ideas down the throats of every one. Ap
plause. Rov. James Crabtreo, of England, thought
it very desirable to establish tho greatest
friendship between religion and science. In
any divorce between them it is religion that
will suffer. Tho religious unbelief and un
scttloment of tho times ia duo to the attitude
of some theologians toward tho new light of
science. Tho Christian faith and its records
must not shrink from the most searching
criticism if that criticism bo made by a seek
ing heart. "Wo only expose ourselves as
thinkers and teachers to ridicule if wo assume
that all those who criticise us do so out of a
bad heart. ThiB ago claims the right which
other ages hnvo had, to put its own construc
tion upon truth.
Chairman Arthur, addressing tho council,
said hohadnoYer hoard in a Methodist as
sembly a discussion which caused him such
deep feeling as tho one heard this morning.
He had heard words usod that evidently the
users had not settled in their heads what they
meant. "What was evolution. Tho unrolling
of a thing from himself. Give tho flower tho
sun and r&in and it would unfold itself bo
causo there was a power at the root.
Bishop Keener, "of the M. E. Church South,
said that ho believed it was the desperato pur
pose of tho human mind to grasp the problem
of creation that had resulted in evolution.
He deprecated all apologetic views of tho
creation. Ho camo out of speculation Into
tho region of fact. Facts could not be gotten
into the mind of a man who had held his
theory thirty or forty or fifty years,
Rev. Lloyd Jonos, of Wales, as one of tho
young ministers accepting evolution, said
that ho did not take tho agnostic view of evo
lution. It was not a queitlon of whether
God created the world, but how he did it. It
was not with tho heart that men beliovod in
God. It was necessary to enlighten men's
minds. Ho did not believe that because a
man held certain doctrines at variance with
himself that ho was a bad man, He was glad
to get out of that rut, and pointed to Weslev's
own vlow on that point. Any mau who had
read u text-book should know tho difference
between tho intellect and tho heart.
Bishop Fowler, of Sau Francisco, held that
a great host bad the conviction that the Son
of God had power to forgive. The Jesuits
never argued; thoy insisted. Unless Metho
dists could defend their ground they must
surrendor, Hear! Therefore, ho welcomed
criticism. Ilo had shipped for an eternal
voyage, and if he was on a craft that would
go to pieces in the first storm ho wanted to
know it now. IleurJ nearll
Rev. Thomas Allen, of Sheffield, England,
said that all tho facts of the universe were
never gotten into a theory. It was necessary
to understand tho temper of modern scopti
cism. It roee from tlio habit of looking
things fairly In the faco, and in that it was a
hopeful sign. It was a necessity of our ago.
Thero was astrango tondency to turn from
tho supernatural to tho natural. "Wo were in
tho midst of a great reaction. Caution and
study wero necessary or tho hold of tho church
on tho great Bupernatural theories would bo
shaken.
Rev. David Brock, of England, said that
tho English proachcrs felt like It was knocking
their heads acalnst a stono wall to rcfuso to
accopt certain scientific facts. If thero had
been a loss In tho belief of tho theory of me
chanical Inspiration of tho Biblo thero had
been a grand gain in tho depth of lovo for
Christ Tho Biblo became moro interesting in
this view.
Mr. L. L. McLaren, of Canada, said that
whilo scientists confined themselves to tho
discovory of tho laws of nature thero was
nothing to say. The conflict between scienco
and religion had como from scientists who
wore unsatisfied with their work. Scienco had
been compelled to abandon moro positions
than had rellcton.
Tho council then adjourned

The presiding officer announced that Bishop
Newman, of Nebraska, would this morning
deliver a memorial sermon on John Wesloy.
Many of the other delegates have accepted In
vitations to deliver sermons in tho churches
of Washington and Baltimore.
A DIFFERENCE OF OPINION.
Another "Kick" From 'Frisco Tho Pah
lie Building Site.
A telegram was received at tho Treasury
Department from Mr. Do Young, of San Fran
cisco, saying that tho property selected as a
site for tho public building Is a quagmiro and
that it will lequiro more than a million dol
lars to lay a foundation for tho build Inc.
Secretary Foster said that this was the first
intimation he had received that thero was any
thing wrong with the site selected, and ho
could scarcely bellevo tho statement, inasmuch
as It was recommended by the special commis
sion charged with tho matter as well as by
both Senators of the State, the two Represen
tatives from tho city, Mr. Huntington, Mr.
Crocker, and many others, whom he naturally
supposed to be thoroughly familiar with tho
locality. Tho Secretary said that the site was
selected mainly on tho recommendation of
the persons named and because it contained
fifty per cent, more ground than any of the
other sites offered. Secretary Foster specially
added that Postmaster-General "Wanamakcr
did not recommend the site which was solected
by the commission, but an entirely a di fferent
one, on elevated ground.

AN OFFICE OHIO MEN ARE NOT
BUNTING FOR JUST NOW.
That is tho Captain's Ofllco Whoro Cam
paign Assessments aro Payable A
"Conference" at Which tho Gonfrroes
Wore Not Numerous.
Tho enterprising gentlemen who this year
took tho contract for collecting campaign as
sessments from tho Ohio Republicans Iu office
in "Washington are having such a hard tlmo
that even tho sympathies of Ohio Dem
ocrats go out to them. Thero aro
said to bo about 1,000 Ohio Republicans in
Government employ here, and It was ex
pected that their contributions would form a
handsome fund to aid in electing tho apostlo
of bogus tin-plato to tho Govemship of
their native State. At least $10,000
was confidently counted on oy
the political assessors as tho result of their
levy. Circulars were sent out inviting con
tributions, but they camo not. Then anot her
and moro urgent batch wore fired into tho
tho mails, with a similar annoying and
discouraging result. At lust a call was
issued to tho Ohio clerks to meet
for a "conference" at the F street office of the
gentleman who had tho collection business
in hand. This call was couched in very large,
statesmanlike language, and pointed out the
far-rsaching results of tho election or de
feat of McKlnloy. It wound up with a state
ment to tho effect that "self-preservation
was tho first law of human nature," followed
by something else that even an unimaginative
clerk might readily construe to mean that if
ho didn't como forward with his boodlo ho
might soon make ono of the after
noon crowd that hangs around tho Star
office waiting for an oarly glimpse at the
"Help "Wanted" column. Tho "conference" of
Ohio clerks was called for Friday night last,
and all tho furniture, with tho exception of a
lot of chairs and tho "captain's" desk, wero
cleared out of the F-street office in anticipa
tion of the rush.
Ohio men aro proverbially on the hunt for
an office, but somehow Friday night did not
seem to bo their night for hunting, especially
for tho office on F Btreet. Least
ways only eloven Ohio men found
that office that night and thoy
were not loaded with wealth. Ono of them
produced a temporary flicker of joy by giving
up $25, but the collection as a whole was a
dismal failure. The conference broke up in
gloom that was relieved only by tho occasional
fiasheB of sulphurous blue flames produced by
the valedictory remarks of the collector who
couldn't collect. It is said that altogether
less than ?1,000 has been secured from tho
Ohio Republicans in ofllco, and that thero Is
profound disgust among the managers at the
way the departments are doing.
