After the singing of the doxology the con
vention adjourned until afternoon.
The convention proper was then called to
order. After devotional exercises the commit
tee on resolutions reported the following:
Whereas, The history of the past seven
years has shown woman to be an important
factor in pushing forward the temperance re
form, and believing the time has now come
when she might be made a more potent power
for good by placing in her hand the ballot, to
be used against the rum power of our State;
Resolved, That we will ask our legislature
during the coming session to remove all hin
drances of woman to her exercising the right of
suffrage for the suppression of the liquor traf
Mrs. Emily H. Miller then offered the follow
ing as an amendment;
Resolved, That we petition our State legis
lature to make provision for the registering of
women over 21 years of age in the same man
ner as voters, and that before a saloon keeprr
can obtain a license he must be able to prove to
the municipal authorities that he has obtained
the ignaturen of a majority of both men and
women over 21 years of ape.
Mrs. Miller supported her amendment by
an eloquent appeal to her hearers to support
the amendment better known as the Hines
amendment of Illinois. In that State, after a
careful canvass, the temperance women bad
fallen back on this as the best law, most nearly
approaching the question of the exercising of
the suffrage of the ballot by woman.
Mrs. Woodbridge then gave the experience of
Ohio on this subject, and a vote being taken,
resulted in the adoption of tho original report
by a vote of 35 to 11.
The committee then reported the following
resolution, which was unanimously adopted
Whereas, Tbe hopes of the success of the
temperance cause lie in the children and youth
of the country, therefore we, the Christian

lessen the tendency to appetite for stimulants
in the young and for the good of humanity,
will discourage by precept and example the
use of alcoholic flavoring in our food, and en
deavor to prepare our food in ss simple and
healthful a manner as practicable.
Resolutions were then adopted returning the
thanks of the delegates to the retiring presi
dent and secretary for the faithful manner in
which they had p2rform3i the onerous duties

Another Railroad Salt.
Messrs. Oilman & Clougb, attorneys for the
Northern Pacific railroad company, have filed a
bill in the United States district court, against
the St. Paul, Minneapolis & Manitoba railroad
company, asking for an injunction restraining
the defendant company from building a bridge
across the, Red river at a point between Moor
hcad and Fargo, where the Manitoba company
hat) proposed to construct a bridge. The bill
recites the fact that the Northern Pacific rail
road company is engaged is. the business of
transportation, and that a considerable portion
of its business is derived from the traffic of the
Red river. It is insisted that the Red river is
a navigable stream, and that the bridge which
the St. Paul & Manitoba company has in con
templation will prove to be a serious obstruc
tion to navigation, and is, besides,' unauthor
ized. The Northern Pacific company asks an
injunction against the St. Paul, Minneapolis &
Manitoba company on the broad ground that
the proposed bridge will- obstruct navigation
upon a river that has been declared navigable,
and proposes to fight it out on that line if it
takes a year or two. -
Proceedings of the Pan Council Yester

credentials and confessions read a communica
tion from the reformed presbytery of Philadel
phia, making application for representation
la the counoil, declaring its creed to be in con
formity with the confessions, and agreeing te
accept the constitution of alliance. The repre
sentatives of presbytery were admitted.
Dr. Brownson submitted a resolution provid
ing for the appointment of a committee to pre
pare some expression that would go forth to
the world as the utterance of the counoil on
the subject of Sabbath observance. Referred
to the business committee. ~. -
Ray. Dr. J. Murray Mitchell, of Edinburgh,
read the report of the committee of foreign
missionary work. The report discussed the
subject in all its bearings, including the best
means of raising funds, modes of conducting
missionary enterprises, the relation of missions
to home churches, and so forth. The report
suggested the establishment of a great train
ing college at Pekin, China, and nrgrd a more
energetic prosecution of mission work in
heathen and pagan countries. The report
stated that 2,000,100 pagans had been rescued
from darkness in the past seventy years by
Protestant missionaries, and referred to the
greater facilities and advantages that may now
be enjoyed by mission work.
Rev. Dr. Par;on, D. D., New York, submit
ted from tho American portion of
he committee a history of mission
nterprises connected with the following
o hnrches: The Presbyterian ohnrch of Canada,
United Presbyterian church in the United
States, Reformed Dutch church, Reformed
Presbyterian ohuroh, general synod. Social Re
formed ohuroh, Presbyterian church north and
south. A summary of the statistics submitted
in the report may be thus stated: Missionaries
in field, 1,195; native missionaries, 145; native
licentiates and preachers, 118; American wom
en connected with mission, 268; native teach
ers and bible readers, 894; oommunioants,
18,571; scholars in boarding .schools, 1,691;
scholars in day schools, 12,087.
D. Wilson proposed that missionaries should
go forward as Evangelists, establishing church
es, ordaining ministers, and organizing presby
terys. Dr. Howrle while admitting the utility
ot this proposition, remarked that if he enter
tained a belief in such powers as that of an in
dividual presbyter oidaining ministers he
would go into the Episcopal church, where
such ordinations are governed by carefully
drawn rules and canons, instead of being left
to the discretion of an individual presbyter.
Rev. Dr. Hutton presented a resolution set
ting forth that tho council would considder it
timely and proper for the various churches rep
resented in the alliance to take such action as
may seem best to the various chnrches, looking
to a closer union of their respective missionary
organizations for greater co-operation in the
practical work of the mission field. The reso
ution wan referred to the business committee.
John Hanson of Antrim, Ireland, presided
lat the afternoon session. In a paper on the
training of candidates for the ministry, Rev.
Herrick Johnson, D. D., of Chicago discussed
the methods of rilling the pulpit with a strong
ministry. Many men who ought to be out of
the ministry ho said, are in it, While men are
men imperfection will of course slip through
despite the utmost care, but as little imperfec
tion as possible should be allowed to go through.
Among the lines drawn by the speaker were the
following: First, tho church must have a more
profound spirituality in another than spiritu
al sense. It may be said
"Like people like priests." Then there
must become prevalent a deep conviction that
a call to the ministry is directly and decidedly
from God and that it is Christ's exclusive pre
rogative and privilege to call and send by a
movement of the Holy Spirit. None
enter the ministry who feel they can stay out
of it, and if tho cnurch would have the proper
sort of ministers she must pay for them. The
supply of ministers is not a matter of market
measuring. The cry of "Too Many Ministers"
is preposterous. This is a matter of God's law,
not of arithmetic. Short outs to the ministry
should be stopped.They lead to short Stops.The
speaker argued that Presbyterians should
adopt means for securing the best material and
the best facilities for iU development.
The Academy of Music was crowded in the
evening, and an overflow meeting was held in
Horticultural hall, the same speakers in both
places. The session was occupied in ten
minute addresses on the state of religion in
heathen countries. Rev. Mr. Stout, from
Japan, traced briefly the labors that had begun
twenty-one years ago with five missionaries,
and now shows fifty churches there, in which
the elect of God gather, and 150 or 160 mission
aries laboring for the spread of the gospel
among the heathen in that land. A Christian
newspaper is now published there and carried
in Japaueno mails. Mr. McEenzie, missionary
from China, said scarcely a generation ago
Protestant missionaries began to enter China,
instead of 15 or 20, as now.
Milwaukee. Sep6.,3o.—The Wisconsin con
vention of Presbyterians and Congregational

The Chauvin Land Case.
Washington, Sept. 80.—Commissioner Wil

made a report to the secretary of the interior
on the celebrated Chauvin land claim case.
The claim embraces about 1,400 acres of land
in the suburbs of St. Louis, Missouri, and has
been pending before the department for fifty
years. Commissioner Williamson's action
does not finally dispose of the case, us it now
goes to the secretary of the interior. The
commissioner reports in favor of the survey
made in 1859, known as Salomon survey, but
while entertaining the opinion that the Cbau
via grant is properly located by the Salomon
survey, he does . not approve it, because he
finds a barrier to that course in the adverse
opinion of the former secretary of the interior
relative to another survey of the same land.

continue to come encouraging to the ferocious

ing, which causes the frequent upa and downs,

must have better prices.
