BISHOP CRANSTON' PIPAProiVT? rONFER
EN'CE—ACTTON <^N THE LIQUOR
QUESTION.
[T»T TTT-EGRArn TO TnE TnlBrNK ]
Torrlngton, Conn.. April S — At th« opening of th«
morning pepylon of the New -York East Confer
ence, in the Methodist Episcopal church, the Rev
Dr. Thomas L. Poulson presented the report of the
committee on temperance. It expressed the belief
that total abstinence from the use of Intoxicating
beverages If the plain duty of \h» Christian, nnd
urged church members to continue to empha>iir«
Its vltai importance, particularly among the chil
dren of the Sunday schools and families. The con
viction that the total prohibition of the traffic in
intoxicating beverages Is the Imperative duty of the
State and nation was reaffirmed. Congress was pe
titioned to p'^s the Gillett-Lodge bill, prohibiting
the sale of Intoxicating liquors In the New-Hebrides
and adjacent Islands to the native r;ices. nnd t>> re
tain the anti-canteen law. Hearty approval was
given to the movement to secure the passage by
Congress of resolution* calling for an appropriation
for the Improvement of post exchanges, and the bill
prohibiting the sale of Intoxicating liquors In gov
ernment buildings, soldiers' homes and Immigrant
stations waa Indorsed. Commendation wns given
to th" proposition In Connecticut to have the legis
lature of this State adopt the probation system for
so-called "rounders." men and women who have
been repeatedly arrested for intemperance, a
m<-tho] which has b'^n successfully employed In
other States.
Co-operation was pledged with all civil officers
within the bounds of the conference, who fire "hon
estly striving to execute existing laws against open
saloons on Sunday and against the ]awlesn traffic
in intoxicating drinks on other days." The resolu
tion continued:
We are unalterably opposed to any and all legis
lation looking toward the opening of saloons on
Sunday, for the whole or any part of the day. We
regard the so-called Raines law hotels in th-? city
of New-York as so many defiant devices for evad
ing the Sunday closing statute and as hotbeds of
vice and crime, and recommend their utter ex
tinction by legislative enactment at the earliest
possible day.
Relieving the Influence of the saloon to be in
variably degrading, we welcome all proper substi
tutes for St. such as t»mper.-<nc« places of assembly,
cheap and clean restaurants, gymnasiums, game
rooms, reading rooms, libraries, people's Institutes,
clubs where Intoxicants are not sold or served,
recreation piers and parks and public baths. We
believe .in organization Is needed which, in a spirit
of conciliation, will see,k to unite all temperance
workers to secure a thorough study of the problems
Involved, persistent education of public sentiment
on the subject, rational legislation and wholesale
substitutes for the saloon. We fear complete suc
cess will never crown our efforts in this reform
until such .unification of the temperance forces
shall have Been effected. Such a union of purpose
and efforts between all true reformers Is certainly
desirable, and ought to he possible, and we should
bend all our energies toward its early accomplish
ment.
Speaking of appointments. Bishop Cranston said:
I am not fond of giving conference surprises, but
if certain pressure is kept up to the last there arc
Ha Die to be some, surprises. Let me say that no
man who is now In the air knows where he will
be on his feet at 9 o'clock to-night. Let no brother
fix his mind on any place and think it is all settled.
When a men places upon himself such an in
dignity as to accept the Idea, that his standing Is
graded by his salary he has put upon his calling
a discredit -which no bishop enn take away There
Is no appointment In the hands of any bishop
which Is any discredit for any man to accept.
The question of support for the superannuate?
again caused a spirited debate. The Rev. Dr.
David G. Downey presented a report recommend
ing an assessment of from ',? to 1 per cent on the
salaries of members. Several members were op
posed to the principle.
The Rev. Dr. George. L. Thompson thought it
was a shame that the members were raring so
little for the interests of the superannuates. Great
generosity was shown In giving to colleges and
hospitals and "In trying to get the last man In
Timbuctoo Into the church." but enough generosity
was not shown in providing for superannuates. The
doctor felt that before endowing colleges and
spending money for missionaries the claims of the
superannuates should first be considered. Dr.
Downey's report was adopted.
At the afternoon session th" Rev. Eugene A.
Noble moved that the next conference be held in
the Old John Street Church. New-York. On motion
of the Rev. Dr. J. M. Buckley the resolution was
referred to the Board of Conference Entertainment.
At 9:30 to-night word was received from Bishop
Cranston that the reading of the appointments
would be postponed until to-morrow morning at S
o'clock.

THE VAX WORKERS' MASKS.
TESTIMONY AGAINST YOUNG MEN AC
CUSED OF MURPERTNG THEIR
UNCLE.
Hudson. N. V., April B.— The trial of Burton.
Willis and Frederick Van Wormer. who are ac
cused of the murder of Peter A. Hallenbeck
on last Christmas Eve, was resumed to-day.
Margaret Hallenbeck, widow of Peter A. Hallen
beck, was reported to be seriously ill to-day as
a result of the nervous strain she underwent
yesterday in testifying against her nephews.
The crowd In court at the afternoon session
was the largest since the trial began. Among
those present was Miss Pearl Van Buren. Willis
Van Wormer's sweetheart.
Imond Vener, of Kinderhook, testified that he
knew the Van Wormers by sight. Two of them
came into his store on the Saturday or Monday
before Christmas. Two of them were there
again on Christmas Eve. He sold masks to the
Van Wormers, who were accompanied by Har
vey Bruce. On cross-examination the witness
said he did not know Harvey Bruce, but had
been told that it was he who accompanied the
Van Wormers. Vener's evidence relating to
Bruce was then stricken out. At the request of
the District Attorney Bruce was brought Into
court and Identified by Vener as the man who
accompanied the Van "Wormer? when the masks
were bought. Continuing. Vener said four
macks were sold. Two were of the style known
as "devil's masks. One "Scotch face" and one
"Indian face" mask were sold. On cross-exam
ination Vener said he could not tell who else
besides the defendants bought masks about
Christmas time. He kept them in stock, and
there was always demand for them.
A. Jerome Bower, of Kinderhook, identified one
of the pistols in evidence as belonging to him.
He last saw It on Christmas night in the Van
Wormer house, in the hands of Coroner Lisk.
The last time he saw it before that was on De
cember 24. when he lent It to Burton Van
Wormer. Mr. Bower said he did lend his pistol
to Burton Van Wormer on" one occasion before.
"He returned it next day," said Bower. "I
have lent pistols to young men in Kinderhook. I
also sell them. It is a practice of young men in
Kinderhook to go about the village at Christmas
time and on the Fourth of July shooting pistols
and wearing masks. Frederick Van Wormer
was In the store when I lent the pistol to
Burton. Burtor, was In the store about half an
hour. A boy named George Karl was there; also
Harvey Bruce. We were practising shooting
that morning back of the store. I rather think
.Willis was not there. I do not believe any one
fired at the target besides Bruce but myself. I
used Bruce's revolver."
The object of this testimony was to show that
a conspiracy existed between the prisoners to
murder Peter A. Hallpnbpck.
Bower wan xamined by .T. Rider Cady
and said: "I found but one pistol at the Van
Wormer house. That pistol was* not loaded
when I found It. It was loaded when I saw
it before the coroner's jury and grand jury. I
cannot tell who tampered with It in the mean
time. When I lent my pistol it was empty;
when returned to me it was loaded. I did not
notice any evidence of it being discharged."*
(ieo<rge H. Brown, a liveryman of Klnderhonk,
testified that r:n December 24 Burton Van
Wormer and Harvey Bruce came to the stable
to engage a cert iin bay mare and buggy, which
they wanted at 5 o'clock, saying they were going
to Stuyvestant and then to North Chatham. At
fi o'clock that evening Brown saw the bay mare
and buggy pass his office window. He said
that the buggy was returned at 11 o'clock that
night The stints worn by the mare were offered
in evidence, and defendants' counsel objected to
their introduction as against Willis and Fred
erick Van Wormer. The Judge allowed the shoes
to go in as evidence against Burton Van
Wormer. who hired the horse. One shoe from
the mare's forward foot, having a peculiar calk,
was also placed In evidence under the same con
ditions. Brown added that when the mare was
returned to the barn she was in good condition.
PROF. FERNOW DEFENDS CORNELL.
LACK OF lIEPT FORESTRY METHODS DUB
TO SMALL APPROPRIATION, HE SAYS.
The annual meeting of the Association for the
Protection of th« Adirondack! was held yesterday
afternoon at No. 208 Broadway. Warren Hlgley
presided.
I'r"f>«i«ar Rernhnrd K. Fernow, of the Cornell
School of Forestry, replied to some of the strict
ures laid on Ills school because of Its operations on
the State lands given for Its use. The Baranac
Lake Association a short time ago charged that
the Cornell School of Forestry was actuated by
commercialism In Its operations. and that It was
denuding lar^e tracts of Adirondack forest land.
Though Professor Fernow denied that the charges
were fully Justified, he admitted that his school
was not practising the best methods of forestry,
such as had proved highly successful In Germany.
He declared that lack of funds was responsible,
Give the school a working capita] of $130,000, ho
said, and methods would be used that would not
Invite criticism. While the school had 30.0*v> acres
at Its disposal, it Intended to operate only 20,000, at
the rate of l.V*) acres a year. The state's action
in allowing only $30,000 a year. Instead of $30,000, as
formerly, allowed the school to practise only one
of the least desirable of the several methods of
forestry.
The present system of denuding and replanting
a certain part of th«" land each year Professor
Fernow said he could not recommend. ' Hut give
us a capital of $150,000," he added, "and I'll devise
another way." The product of the Cornell lands.
he said, had been found to have three times more
value as cordwood than as lumber He Is now
selling wood to a wood alcohol plant and a large
cooperage on Tupper Lake.
The following were elected trustees of the as
sociation for three years, to serve with twenty
others who hold over: John G. A gar. General X
A. McA'.pin. Arthur H. Bfarston. William G. Do
Witt. Henry S. Harper. Warren liigley, Henry H.

TO RAISE STANDARD OF "P. AND 8."
THE TRUSTEES OF COLITMBIA TAKE MEASURES
TO INCREASE ENTRANCE! REQUIREMENTS.
With a view to Increasing the standard of scholar
ship among th» students in the Columbia College
of Physicians and Surgeons the university trustees
have decided to raise the entrance requirements to
the "P. and S." next year. Heretofore admis
sion to the first year class of the college has
been oppn to any student who compiled with the
minimum requirement? for a medical student's cer
tificate as those requirements are defined by the
laws of the State of New-York. The law provides
that a student who obtains thirty-six of the forty
eight necessary counts may enter upon the study
of medicine, with one year in which to make up
the remaining twelve counts.
After July 1, 1902. no student who has not the full
forty-eight count? to his credit will be admitted to
the first year class at the College of Physicians
and Surgeons. A still more radical change will go
into effect on July 1. 1903. when no student will be
admitted who has not obtained a medical student's
certificate In either of these two ways: First by
having successfully completed at least one 'full
year's course In a college or scientific school in the
United States, or having pursued an equivalent
course of study at some European institution; sec
ond, by passing an entrance examination ' con
ducted in June of any year by the college en
trance examination board, or In September by the
committee on entrance examinations of Columbia
University.
While it Is the expectation of the president and
faculty of Columbia that these new entrance ex
quirements will materially reduce the number of
students of medicine, It Is confidently believed that
the high standard will result in attracting the best
class of medical students to Columbia, and will
pave the way for raising the standard of admission
stLll more in the near future.

TRANSVAAL. COLONY.
London. April 9.— The correspondent of Th*
Standard" at Klerksdorp. Transvaal Colony. hf>3
pent by cable an account of the battle at Doorn
balt Farm on March 31. in which the British
had three officers and twenty-four men killed.
and sixteen officers and 131 men wounded, while,
the Boers lost 137 men in killed or wounded.
A small force of Canadians and mounted in
fantry, says the correspondent, were opposed by
sevenfold their number. Six hundred Boers
charged confidently, calling; upon them to sur
render. Lieutenant Carruthers. of the Cana
dians, sprang to his feet, and exclaiming that
he would not surrender shot the foremost Boer
with his revolver at a distance of fifteen paces.
The Canadians had no cover, except the short
grass. Lying prone upon the ground they fired
steadily, and forced the Boers to seek the shelter
of a screen of trees. Many of the Boers climbed
these trees and fired down on the Canadians.
The latter kept the enemy at bay for two hours.
When all except fifteen of the British troops
were killed or wounded, the Boers ventured
another rush and captured the handful of sur
vivors.
Lieutenant carruthers was the only British
officer who was not seriously wounded. He had
several flesh wounds, but refused to go to the
hospital. Some of the Boers wanted to ghOOt
him when he was taken prisoner, hut they ul
timately thoucht better of this, saying:, "Hi is
too brave a man to die that way."
All of rh«» dead men and most of the wounded
had several wounds each.

HAD GREEXGOODB CIRCULARS. .
DETECTIVES CAPTURE MAN WHO TRIES
TO THROW AWAY THREE HUNDRED.
With a large number of greengooda circulars
In his possession a man, who. the police say. Is
Joseph Crocheren Bryan, was arrested yester
day afternoon by Detectives Frank Kelly and
James Kelly, of the Brooklyn Detective Bureau.
James Kelly says that on the way to headquar
ters Bryan offered him $200 for permission to
go Into a saloon and destroy the circulars.
The Brooklyn police have been trying for six
weeks to find a man who has been flooding the
country with greengonds announcements. They
finally, as they believed, discovered him at No.
109 Lewla-ave., where he was living with his
wife and year-old son. This man was
shadowed for two weeks, and yesterday the de
tectives decided to make an arrest. They say
that their prisoner la .i lawyer and has been

pal] out he ran out on the platform and dashed
across to board a train on the opposite aide of
the station. The detectives forced open the gate
of the other train, which had already been closed
by the guard, and caught Bryan just as the sec
ond train was getting in motion.
Meanwhile he had thrown three large packages

dred green goods circulars in sealed and ad-
eased envelopes.
At headquarters the prisoner gave the name
of Jason D. Brownlow and his age as thirty
seven years. He refused to admit that be lived

and will be arraigned in the Adams-st. court
this morning.
T<> CLO&E ITS COAL \ll\Fs.
ROCHESTER AND FITTSBURG COMPANY DE
CLARES WAR ON UNION LABOR
Plttsburg. April •?.— "The Post" to-morrow will
say that a remarkable development in the- coal
miners" strike in the central district fields has takes
place in the las! fen- days it was learned to nigh:
from official sources that the strike of the miners
there, and particularly those who were employed
by the Rochester and PlttaVurg Coal Company, Ibm
determined the coal company to take drastic meas
urea for stamping out all unionism in the 1 1 ton
The Rochester and Pitt?burg Company operates
three mines, the Walton. Adrian and Florence. All
are near Punxsutawney. and on them fully ten
thousand men depend for employment.
After vainly endeavoring to get an agreement
satisfactory to the officers of the company, and
finally despairing of It, orders were given to close
the mines. This order meaoa the absolute Idleness
of the properties of the company for at least all
th« corning summer.
The first step taken was to issue the notice to
the miners occupying bousM owned by the com
pany to remove from them. The first of these
ejectment notices wen served last Thursday, and
were to miners who had been among the leaders or
the strike. All of the others are to have similar
notices served on th^rn this week. and. with their
families, will be compelled to move. In addition
to this the company's stores have been practically
closed down, and the clerks dismissed.
It was announced to the men that the company
would not open the mines again until next fall. In
the mean Time miners and all employes could look
elsewhere for work. When the company was ready
to begin again. It was said, only non-union men
would be hired, and the company would not recog
nize any scale or agreement of the United Mine
Workers.

Jonas's factory system. .
The Minotola workmen have for the last few
