MORRIS FOR JUDGE Duluth Congressman Seems to Lead 22JSS Evans in the Race. SCOPE OF THE FORTHCOMING BILL One Will Be Introduced Xext Ses sion Creating a Xetv Judic ial District. From The Journal Bureau. Boom *S. Po» Building, Washington. Washington, May IS.—The movement to make Judge Morris, of Duluth a federa Judge as coon as congress shall have passed a bill creating' a new district or another judgeship in Mia" nesota, was put under way in Washing ton last winter, with Judge Morris' con- Bent. As all who know Morris are aware, he for years has been ambitious to sit upon the federal bench, but saw no open ing. When the Minnesota Judgeship bill was introduced by the late Senator Davis, several years ago, Morris said nothing, because it was the understanding that the position was to go to R. O. Evans of Minneapolis. With the death of Davis, however, and the election of Clapp to the senate as his successor in a contest in which Evaus was a very prominent figure, it has been assumed that the Evans boom for the bench has subsided. It was not until after the election of Clapp that Judge Morris permitted his ambition to be discussed by the Minnesota delegation In congress. He then said that if the bill were to become a law. and the delegation were to favor him for the appointment, he would be grateful. That is the way the matter stands at present. The fact that Judge Morris was being considered for the appointment was published in the twin city press while congress was in session, but the story did not attract general at tention until after the legislature had ad journed and public men had more time for such things. Then, too, the return home of the congressmen and senators has probably had the effect of reviving the affair. It is the program of the delegation to introduce a bill for a new judgeship, or for a new district in Minnesota, as soon as congress meets. The bill will be re ferred to the judiciary committee of each house and will be incorporated into a gen eral bill which will be reported by these committees, redistrieting the entire coun try for federal judicial purposes, a work which should have been attended to years ago. In all probability the general bill will become a law during the life of the fifty-seventh congress, which is to meet in December of this year and adjourn sine die March 4. 1903. Before the Minnesota paragraph receives the hearty support of the members of both houses it is predicted that there will be some sort of an understanding among the Minnesota delegation looking to harmony of action when the time shall have come to name the new judge. Usu ally the senators reserve for themselves all patronage of this sort, but the house members have already served notice upon them that inasmuch as the bill must pass the house before it can become a law, the bouse end of the delegation must be con sulted in the naming of the judge; and this move is understood tp be directly in the interest t>t Judge Morris, who is very popular with the delegation, and whose ambition is well understood and is being encouraged. The bill could have passed last winter If the delegates had got together. Whether next winter the senators will be more inclined to yield a point is not known, but it may be said that if they are not, the bill will probably not pass— that is, unless the seven congressmen change their program. As between Evans and Morris it looks at present as if the latter were in the lead. Morris has active, earnest, close personal friends in the Minnesota dele gation, who will go to their full length for him; while Evans, although the friend of all the members, has no such "pull" with them. —W.

William*, State President. Takes l'urt—Resolution Requesting Delay Adopted. From a Staff Correspondent. St. Peter. Minn., May 18.—The third an nual convention of the third subdivision of the second district of the Minnesota Fed- . eration of Women's Clubs opened last night very auspiciously. The subdivision includes the town* of St. Peter, Spring field, Sleepy Eye and New Ulm, each of which sent a large delegation. A visit ing delegation of ten women from the Mankato Art History club came over this morning for the day. The most interest- . ing vistors are two club babies belonging to Mrs K. E. Mo. and Mrs. William An- | derson .of Springfield. They have been | in constant attendance at the meeting. Baby Anderson is accompanied by both mother and grandmother. The arriving vistors were met yesterday afternoonby a committee of twelve women and by Mayor and Mrs. W. H. Muller and taken for a delightful drive around town. The meetings are being held in the Methodist church, which has been hand- j somely decorated. A formal greeting was given by the subdistrict president, Mrs. H. L. Stark, of St. Peter, who spoke of the change in the home atmosphere for the better through ciub influence. The response -was made by Mrs. K. E. Mo. j The principal address was given by Mrs. j Lydia Phillips Williams, president of the state federation, on •'The Club Move ment." In speaking to a mixed audience, she thought it an auspicious occasion for launching an educational campaign for mixed clubs. These she saw coming in the fututre and strongly indorsed. An informal reception during which those present were introduced to Mrs. Williams followed the program. ••The Color Question." This morning was given up almost en tirely to a discussion of the color ques tion, which was the imoprtant feature of j the meeting. Mrs. A. K. Gault. of Omaha, gave a historical sketch of the agitation. The opening speech of the discussion, made by Mrs. C. D. Griffith, of Sleepy Eye. expressed strong opposi tion to a majority using its power to force an inharmonious element on the mi nority, thereby causing friction. She thought there was a tendency to senti mentalize the question and exaggerate the j imoprtance of the result; that northern women were inclined to pose as the friends of the colored women merely out of deference for public opinion. She be lieved that as many of the colored women are the intellectual peers of the white club members, it is social recognition they are seeking, not educational advant ages. Also that too much has been done for the negroes and that the effect would be better to let them do more for them selves. She wanted to see the colored women make their own federation a power in the land; and in that way to win their social recognition. She expressed her < onvlction that the negro race is as cap able of forming a natural aristocracy of virtue and talent as any race on the I globe, and that that is the only way real social recognition will ever come to it. Xo oth«r race can show such a record of progress in the first forty years following a period of bondage. In conclusion she said: "But Bocial recognition is a vast triumph to come to any race, nation or individual. And it follows inevitably that where a race is obliged to commence at the bottom of the social ladder, it must traverse the inter vening space before the goal is reached. You may steady the ladder If you will, but you cannot force them faster than the conditions which they are able to overcome by their own effort will per mit." Other Speakers. Mrs. Mullen, of New Ulm, asked the club wcmen to try to realize the effect of the association of white and colored wo men, and if not ready to receive the col ored wuman on an absolutely equal basis. not to try to associate with them at all. Mrs. William Murfln, of Sleepy Eye, re garded it as selfish of club women to keep to themselves the educational advantages of their club. Miss Isabel Chadwick, of St. Peter, spoke specially or. the admission of col ored women into the state federation. She made her plea only for the worthy and aspiring women who could pa« 3 any reas onable test except color. She referred to wnat the public has come to expect of club women, and believed Minnesota would be judged by the decision of her club women on this question. Therefore, she desired thaf a decision be determined by justice Instead of by policy. She would admit colored women to club advantages, for they earnestly desire to better them selves and their people, because they are capable of improvement and because it is American to offer the fullest opportunity to all. Mrs. Tomliosoa urged m conservative THE MINNEAPOLIS JOURNAL. course, believing that in time this would lead to the granting to colored women of the fullest opportunity without caus ing dangerous friction. By request, Mrs. Williams gave her views on the ethics of the case. To her mind, ethics does not enter into the ques tion at all. She regards it as a question of methods, of what would best conserve the ends of the federation. The tests she would apply are those commonly applied in all association affairs —whether the ap plicant will prove an agreeable associate in work, and whether she will be able to further the object of the association. This discrimination is strictly constitu tional and usual in all organizations, and !is necessary for their self-preservation. Mrs. Williams answered numerous ques tions and the discussion became general. Would Wait for General Federation. At the close a resolution was adopted requesting the state federation to defer action on the color question until the I general federation makes its decision. The district vice president, Mrs. H. A. Tomlinson, of St. Peter, gave an address on "The Parting of the Ways," in which she referred regretfully to the fact that next year St. Peter would be removed | from the second district and the club wo- Imen severed from their present pleasant I associations. At 1 o'clock an elaborate luncheon was served by the club women of St. Peter. Miss Kate L. Forbush presided over a program of toasts, as follows: "Our Guests," Mrs. Rogers, St. Peter. "The Club Woman of the Twentieth Cen tury," Mrs. Peterson, New Ulm. '•The Woman of Leisure and the Wage Earner," Mrs. Smith, Sleepy Eye. "Our Presidents," Mrs. Donahower, St. Peter.

UILMORE IS CRITICIZED Strong: Word* of an American Sea man Who Was Captured by Filipinos. Maw York Sun gpeolal Sorvfce Boston, May 18.—Ossie Woodbury, one of the seamen captured with Lieutenant Gilmore by the Filipinos on the coast of Luzon, on April 12, 1899, is at his home in Lynn. In discussing the ambuscado Woodbury said: Lieutenant Gilmore behaved like an old woman when those Filipinos fired ou us. About sixty of them opened fire oil us and there we waited for some order, but he never gave us any. He just looked at the puffs of smoke, drew his revolver and commenced to fire at them. We looked at each other and at him and then started firing on our own account. I was shot in the side, the bullet entering my cartridge belt and exploding some of the cartridges. Two of the bullets lodged under my ribs on my left side and were extracted by a Filipino surgeon. I fell into the water when shot.

HUSBAND HAD BEEN ARRESTED Town Takes Sides, but the Marshal Finally Lands Her in Jail Also. Adrian, Minn., May 18. —An anti-saloon demonstration which has never been equaled in this part of the country took place in the barroom of the Slabe hotel. The principal in the trouble was Mrs. William Pass, who is an active temper ance woman. William Pass, while in a half intoxi cated condition, became involved in an argument about some trivial matter with the bartender of the saloon. A fierce fight followed, in which blood flowed free ly on b'_>th sides. After a few minutes the fight abated somewhat, but only to be renewed when the marshal arrived up on the scene. After a second fight Pass was finally overpowered and taken to Jail. Later in the evening Mrs. Pass came to the saloon and requested that the proprietor and bar tender order her husband released, which they refused to do. Mrs. Pass then grubbed for the bartender, who ran around the bar and tried to make his escape. She chased him around the room, break ing a window and glass fixtures at the same time. The marshal was called a second time, but this time refused to act, as there was a large crowd present, and the sentiment was pretty evenly divided. Mrs. Pass was just in the act of hurling an iron cuspidor at the bartender, who had assumed an undignified position in a remote corner of the room, when the marshal decided to interfere. In the struggle that followed the wo man broke four windows and several glass and ornamental furnishings about the room. Her work of destruction was not interfered with by any of the bystanders, who seemed for the most part inclined to take sides against,the marshal if he pro posed to place her under arrest. A general fight seemed for a time in evitable, but the marshal and his sup porters at last managed to get the woman under control, and she was carried by force to the jail, a large crowd following. She spent most of the night with her hus band in jail. HOME COMING OF SOLDIERS TRANSPORTS LEAVING MANILA Three of Them to Start To-day With Volunteers on Board. Washington, May 18.—Quartermaster General Ludington has received a cable message from Colonel Miller, depot quar termaster at Manila, giving additional de tails regarding the return home here of the volunteers. He says that the trans ports Hancock, Buford and Aztec will leave Manila for San Francisco to-morrow and that the transport Pennsylvania will leave on the 22nd inst. The Aztec is an animal ship. The others are troop ships. They will bring the Thirty-first, Fortieth and Forty-first regiments of volunteer in fantry. Information has also been re ceived of the departure of transports Sumner and Indiana from Nagasaki for Taku to transport General Chaffee's army to Manila. San Francisco, May 18.—Brigadier Gen erals Frederick D. Grant and J. C. Bates arrived from Manila on the transport Sheridan. General Grant is on his way east to join his son who is a student at West Point. General Bites intends to visit friends In Chicago and St. Louis. He does not believe he will be sent back to Luzon. It is expected he will be placed iv command of the department of the Missouri. Among the passengers on the Sheridan is Calvin P. Titus, the musician of Company E, Fourteenth infantry, who was .the first to scale the wall of Peking when the allied force attacked the Chinese capital. Titus received a special appoint ment to the Annapolis Naval academy by President McKinley and is on his way to that institution. Edwin Carson, a signal service man, whose bravery was also re warded by the president appointing him to West Point is another passenger. • w. poinTpertorbation UPPER CLASS MEN IX REVOLT Unpopularity of the Superintendent Given as the Cause of Trouble. Washington, May 18. —Information of a semiofficial nature has been received here from the West Point military academy of a serious condition of affairs prevailing in the cadet battalion, which amounts al most to an insurrection of a large num ber of upper class men. Trouble has been known to exist at the institution since the investigation of the Booz hazing, and matters have grown so bad of late that it is reported here that no less than eighty cadets, chiefly of the second or next ranking class, were confined to quarters and that several and perhaps a large pro portion might be courtmartialed. The so-called insurrection is said to lfcave been a result of the growing unpop ularity of Colonel Mills, the superinten dent, who, army officers allege, has issued orders and prescribed regulations which the cadets believe are entirely opposed to the traditions and best interests of the school. Adjutant General Corbin said this morning that he had not received any re port of trouble at West Point, and that ke knew nothing of the affair. AT ANY COS?"

Discussion to Open Thursday. The names of the commissioners select ed yesterday by the various districts to serve as members of the standing commit tees were read and accepted. The com mittees on ministerial relief, freedmen and aid for colleges immediately retired to elect their chairman and the remaining committees were instructed by the as sembly to meet at noon for the same pur pose. On motion of Rev. Dr. W. H. Rob erts, the standing order of business was changed and the presentation of board re ports arranged so that discussion of the report of the committee on revision could be made the first order for next Thursday and continued until the matter was defi nitely settled. Rev. Dr. Ersklne of Newville moved that discussion on revision be continued uninterrupted by other matters until a conclusion had been reached by the as sembly. On motion of Rev. Dr. John G. Reading of Williamsport, the report of the committee on judicial commissions was "made the first order after the set tlement of the revision question. The component parts of a particular church are: The sessions, the deacons, the communi cant members, with their baptized children, the Sabbath school with its scholars, teach ers and officers; the various societies or agencies organized for the carrying on of Christian work and development of Christian life. The report of the committee on mission ary and benevolent offerings did not meet with favor by a majority of the commis sioners. A recommendation Is made add ing to overture No. 1 a new section, as follows: Rev. Dr. George T. Purves of New York moved to refer the report to the com mittee on church polity. Ho said he feared such an addition to the overture might introduce a new definition of the church and that this definition might be used to the serious detriment of the church in the fact that Sunday school children would be allowed to vote in church meetings. John "Willis Baer of Boston, secretary of the Christian Endeavor society, spoke In favor of the report on the ground tfcat if adopted it would for the first time in the history of the church give the Chris tian Endeavorers and Sabbath school chil dren excellent recognition in the church. The report was referred to the commit tee on church polity. The assembly then adjourned until Monday morning. TWENTIETH CEXTIBY FUND The Committee Thereon Tells All About It. Philadelphia, May 18.—John Wanamaker occupied the chair at last night's ses sion of the Presbyterian general assem bly. The principal speaker was R Samuel J. Niccols of St. Louis, who delivered an address on the oppor tunity and duty of the Presbyterian church in the twentieth century. Rev. Dr. Marcus A. Brownson of this city, chairman of the Twentieth Century fund committee, read the report of the committee, which told In detail the meth ods adopted to raise money for the church. Rev. Dr. Roberts, treasurer of the fund, presented a supplementary report, show ing receipts as follows: For boards of the church, $106,030; for colleges and academies, $330,000; for the ological seminaries, $110,767; for hospi tals, $61,659; for Young Men's Christian association, $117,464; miscellaneous, $30, --000; for local debts on churches, $1,081,- C 54; for improvements in local churches and building new churches, $1,537,913. Total, $3,397,031. This amount has been contributed by 107,800 Presbyterian churches in the country. Dr. Roberts stated. that he had re ceived information that in St. Louis i subscriptions amounting to $180,000 had ! been received and had not been included in the report. He was also informed, he said, that one-half of the amount re quired to remove the mortgage on the Presbyterian building in New York had been raised. This was included in his report. The report of the committee on revision will be laid before the commissioners to morrow, though It is not expected the subject will be discussed by the assem bly before the middle of next week. Sur prise was manifested when it was learned that a minority report will be presented. The minority report agrees in all Its con clusions exceDt clause 8, which recom mends that the. revision committee be instructed to prepare a brief summary •of the reformed faith bearing the same relation to the confession which the short er catechism bears to the large catechism. The minority believe that this recom mendation is not identical with what many of the Presbyterians requested in their answers to the committee's in quiries and that it erects an additional standard of orthodoxy with the shorter catechism. The report is signed by E. W. C. Humphrey and William McKibbin. ASSEMBLY ANALYZED Men of Unusual Ability Guiding the Church's Destinies. Correspondence of The Journal. Philadelphia, May 16.—More than 600 delegates from all parts of the world are gathered together in the city of Brotherly Love to take part in the deliberations of the 113 th general assembly, and »eldom is it the privilege of any man to look upon a more noble appearing body of men. There are many present whose heads have grown gray in the service and whose wis dom is proverbial in traditions of the church. Side by side with these sit those who, for the first time, have come up to such a meeting as this. It is peculiarly fitting that the first meeting of this great body should be held in this city, for this is the 200 th year since the installation of the pastor of the First Presbyterian church took place. Here the General Presbytery was organized in 1705, the general synod was organized in 1717 and the general assembly in 1789. Here also the old and new school. It Is, there fore, the 196 th year since the establish ment of a supreme church judicatory in the Presbyterian church in America. The meeting this year Is of the utmost importance to Christendom. Not only are Presbyterians of city, village and country interested in our own land, in Alaska, the islands of the sea and in the mission fields all over the world, but other de nominations of Christians are looking to this meeting with deep interest on account of the great questions soon to be brought before the assembly. Of course, the ques tion of the revision of the confession of faith is the "paramount issue," as it touches the very foundation of the Pres byterian system of belief. It was in this city in 1888 that an attempt was first made to revise the creed, and here again, the question promises to take more defi nite form. Ten years ago the general as sembly appointed a committee of twenty one ministers and elders to take up this matter of revision and report at the next meeting. The committee proposed certain changes in the confession of faith which were submitted to the 230 Presbyteries, to adopt which a two-thirds affirmative vote "was necessary. Many of the Presby teries failed to vote on the question and the matter was dropped. It lay dormant for several years, owing to the Interest of the church being cen tered in the controversy with Dr. Brlggs, but at last year's meeting of the assem bly in St. Louis the matter was opened by request, and the moderator was em powered to appoint a committee of fif teen to correspond with the various Pres byteries as to what was their desire in the matter. Replies have been received from about 200 of them, the larger part Indi cating a strong sentiment that some changes In the standards of the church would be advisable, but not a majority SATURDAY EVENING, MAY 18. 1901 MAYOR DORAN OF ST. PAUL Experiences the Invigorating Effect of Paine's Celery Compound. Hon. F. B. Doran who has been several j times honored by the citizens of St. Paul by re-election as mayor, possesses many of the characteristics that go to make the reputation of a "sound man," and is the last person in the world to publicly indorse anything of which he has not fully informed himself. Mayor Doran decided to take Paine's celery compound this spring, having heard much of its wonderful efficacy from phy sicians, neighbors and intimate friends. He was not disappointed. His experience with this great remedy was so gratifying that a few days ago he sent the proprie tors a testimonial which adds conclusive proof to the statement of physicians that, of all the spring remedies that^an be had, Paine's celery compound stands far above all others in honest and great re sults. March 21, 1901. Dear Sirs —I am convinced that every one, sick or well, needs to take a spring remedy, and for that purpose I believe nothing can equal Paine's celery com pound. I commend it especially to the nervously afflicted. Very truly yours, F. B. DORAN*. of these agreeing as to Just what changes should be made. Among the delegates present are those who favor a new creedal statement, others who desire some Flight changes m%de in the old statement, some who desire a sup plemental statement, others simply a de claratory statement which will cover the disputed points, some want several new chapters added, while not- a few desire to have the whole matter dropped. It is impossible at this time to predict what will be the outcome of the discussion, and really it matters little as this assembly cannot change the confession. It can only accept or reject the report of the com mittee, and while that report is almost unanimously in favor of revision along the lines proposed in 1892, the matrer must ultimately be settled by the Pres byteries in which the vote of the elder ■who follows the plow counts for just as much as that the most scholdarly pastor in the land. Dr. Robert Sample ex-moderator of the assembly and former pastor of West minster church, Minneapolis, was a visitor at the assembly to-day. Rev. Joseph W. Cochron, D. D.. a former Minneapolis boy and an alumlnus of Macalaster college is pastor of the Northminster church of this city and a prominent member of the com mittee of arrangements for the assembly. One of the encouraging features of this meeting is that it is reported on good au thority that each one of the boards of the church'will report no debts outstanding. It has been sad that the election of Dr. Minton of California as the moderator is a sure sign of victory for the conservative element in the assembly, but that pre diction remains to be fulfilled. The progressive spirit of the assembly is, It seems, clearly shown in the effort to defeat the Peoria plan of appointing stalling committees of the assembly; that is the appointing of the members of each committee by the members of tiie assem bly, thus taking the appointing power out of the hands of the moderator. —W. MOREY IS GAINING Recovery Will Be Slow, but Ia Re garded Sure. Special to The Journal. Winona. Minn., May 18.—C. A. Morey, member of the state board of control, who Is confined to him home in this city by reason of injuries received in his fall at the capitol, is slowing though steadily gaining in health.

Mr. Bensonhurst—lt is believed that Herreshoff ia going to have some new wrinkles in his cup defender's mainsail. Miss Dykerheights—Why, I thought they always tried to make sails set per fectly smooth! Because a man is growing old he need not be an invalid. Old age isn't a disease. A man at 60 should be well, and many at 70 are as well as ever in their lives. But as age comes on the blood needs to be rid of rheumatism and the muscles of neuralgia; the nerves need feeding and the brain nourishment. Paine's celery com pound is food for the brain and nerves. It builds up the strength of the body. The saddest ignorance is for a sick person not to know the remedy that will make him well. Fortunately, few people have failed to hear of the remarkable cures from the use of Paine's celery compound. For rheumatism, neuralgia, Impure blood, nervous diseases and kindred troubles, it Is a positive cure. The ex perimental efforts of scores and scores of so-called spring remedies with which the market is constantly recruited are in startling contrast with the thoroughly scientific way in which Paine's celery com pound restores health and vigor to the worn-out blood and nerves. New strength, new life, new health come from its use —especially is this true in the spring. CONGER'S OLD COUNTY Cnmmim More Than Likely to Take It From Him. Special to The Journal. Dcs Moines, lowa, May 18. —The first of the caucuses in Dallas county, which is now the chief seat of war between the Cummins and anti-Cummins forces, were held to-day at Adel and Redfield.

Poor Selection of Food Is the Cause of Break Downs, Many men and women too, feel that their work is the cause of symptoms of nervous break-down, but work is not the cause, as any one can prove to their en tire satisfaction, by leaving off the food they have been trying to subsist on, and taking in its place food made for the ex press purpose of rebuilding the brain and nerve centers in. the body and supplying other portions with sufficient nourishment and keep right on with the same work and get well and strong. An illustration given in the caseOf F. A. Whitely, Supt. of of the Public School* at Excelsior, Minn. He is £lit> a stutfent^and teacher of hygiene. -He-' s*ys:'> "'This spring at the beginning of the last month of school, I was very much run down, and since my duties are quite confining, I naturally ascribed my condition- to that. I discovered that I made the same mis take that many do. It is not work, but a lack of proper food that causes break down. Wife went visiting this time and I concluded to get my own meals for a time. The grocer suggested that I use a ready cooked food known as Grape-Nuts. I found the food delicious, requiring no cooking. I simply poured milk or cream over it and had It in that way. I used Grape-Nuts for breakfast, din ner and supper, and liking it so well I simply lived on It for the next thfee weeks. My work continued quite as ardu ous and confining 'as- before but I expe rienced a decided rise in spirits and vital ity as well as in general health. Found I did not tire as ;Defore and entirely lost that worn-out feeling which seems to take the heart out of one. I am satisfied the change was due to my change in food, and I have been so' greatly helped and have been taught so valuable a lesson in food as related to the human body that I wish to express my apprecia tion in this manner." It will pay any brain worker to dis pense with a part of the ordinary diet and use Grape-Nuts once or twice a day at least, for the food is made by food ex perts, for a purpose, and that purpose ia to furnish the human system with the ele ments, in a concentrated form, required for rebuilding the brain and nerve centers throughout the body. There Is no sort of question of the truth of the statement and value of food, as can be demonstrated by anyone.
