Exception Taken to the Charge That
Over 2,000 Churches Pail to
Help Home Missions.
Philadelphia, May 21.—The considera
tion of church board reports was contin
ued at to-day's session of the Presby
terian general assembly. The special or
ders were the reports of the committees
on home missions, aid for colleges and
church erection.
Every effort is being made by the as
sembly to dispose of all the routine mat
ters before debate on revision begins in
order that when the subject is aettled
there may be little unfinished business
to consider.
The report of the committee on home
missions, read by Rev. Dr. Hugh K.
Walker, chairman, contained numerous
recommendations, one of the most im
portant being an earnest commendation
of the proposed anti-polygamy amend
ment to the conßtitution of the United
States. In this connection the report
We earnestly urge upon congress the im
portance of prompt action in this matter,
so that such an amendment may be submitted
to the stales before the Mormons gaiu the
balance of political power in any additional
■tales of the union.
The committee also recommended that
the church be asked to contribute during
the year not less than $550,000, of which
$500,000 is to be used for evangelistic
work; that as a means to secure this
amount and to signalize the centennial
year of the boani the presbyteries be re
quested to ask churches for two congrega
tional offerings to the board; that
churches, families and individuals be re
quested to make gifts for special objects,
such ac for furnishing a minister or a
teacher: that the moderator appoint a
committee of thirty 10 arrange for the
proper observance of the one hundredth
anniversary of the board of home mis
sions during the general assembly of 1902.
Dr. Walker made a strong appeal in be
half of home missions. He asserted that
foreign missions received so much atten
tion from the church that home missions I
suffered from neglect. Dr. Charles L.
Thompson of New York, secretary of the
board of home missions, followed with an
eloquent appeal for support.
Elder Ephriam Banning of Chicago, pre
cipitated a spirited debate by taking ex
ception to the statement in the report that
2,313 churches do not contribute directly
to the home mission board. He contended
that if a presbytery or synod supported
its own home missions, its work was equal
to that of other presbyteries and synodg
■which contributed directly. Rev. Dr.
James Vance of Chicago protested against
what he regarded as an aspersion on the
presbyt^cies which contributed to their
home missions. Numerous other commis
sioners were heard, and Dr. Walker ended
the discussion by agreeing to make an
amendment. The objectionable sentence
was eliminated and the report adopted.
A supplementary report from the com
mittee on relief asking the assembly to
Bon-concur in the recommendation of the
board that the home at Penh Amboy be
abandoned was adopted.
Rev. Dr. John Fox presented a report
In behalf of ihe American Bible Society.
The assembly adopted a resolution com
mending the society.

Illinois, and possibly the supreme court
of the United States, will in the near
future be asked to pass upon an entirely
new question in American jurisprudence,
and incidentally upon the disposition of
Uowie and Dowieism. It is the decision
of the problem whether a state may pro

medical attendance in certain emergen

birth of children, compulsory.
Coroner Traeger had a long conference
yesterday with States Attorney Deneen,

he intended to carry the case of Dowie as
high as it could be taken, and that he
"would not cease his efforts till everything
possible had been done to compel the high

intensity and the officials investigating

Prof. Wright Kind* What He Thinks
Indisputable Indications.
*"•«■ York Sun Special Service.
Xew York, May 21.—Professor George
Frederick Wright, LL. D., of Oberlin col
lege, who has lately returned from a sci
entific trip through Siberia and western
Asia, told the Congregational club at the
hotel St. Denis last evening that in his
journey he had found in Asia what he
considered some geological evidences of
the deluge. It was in the 'Loeff," or
fine glacial loam, similar to that of the
Missouri valley, which he found on the
Amur river and in Turkestan; and in the
conclusive evidence that there had been

In that region than at present and that
this had been since man had been on the
earth. He concluded that all men were
destroyed after the glacial snows melted,
except those in the ark.
Economy In Food.
"Ease In getting a meal and economy,
fere two important things," a lady teacher
•ays about the fully cooked food Grape-
Nuts. "I started in on Grape-Nuts be
cause It needed no preparation whatever,
and I wanted a little lunch before going to
bed, so I had cream and sugar ready and
a package of Grape-Nuts. Pouring a little
of the food Into a saucer I treated it with
good rich cream and a little sugar at
times, usually it was sweet enough.
I had a meal that satisfied hunger and I
began to sleep well nights. After a while
I concluded to make my breakfast of
Grape-Nuts and a little fruit rather than
go to the boarding-house. I found that I
began to improve very rapidly in health,
and my work became a pleasure.
I have made a most important discovery,
that is that I can have a meal served at
a cost of about one cent that is the most
nourishing meal that I have ever been
able to find, delicious in taste and a real

Deputy's Fierce Fight With a Madman
Special io The Journal. .
Sisseton, S. D:, May 21.—An insane man by the n«fcue of George Jennings, resid
ing six miles northeast of this city, attacked Deputy Sheriff L* Bott with a razor.
The deputy stumbled and fell to the ground and instantly the madman was upon him,
razor in hand. The deputy's assistant came to the rescue and received an ugly cut
across the wrist. The crazy man was finally disarmed and ordered to surrender, but
refusing to do this, the deputy flred a charge of bird shot at him, wounding him in
,the hand and thigh, which caused him to throw up his hands. Jennings imagines
himself a Pinkerton detective and that It is his duty to arrest everybody in sight.
He was brought to this city, where his wounds were dressed.
Relation* of Workers \\ lth the Xew
I. S. Steel Corporation to Be
Milwaukee, "Wis., May 21.—One of the
most important conventions in the history
of the Amalgamated Association of Iron,
Steel & Tin Workers met here to-day,
with about 250 delegates present. Im
mediately after the opening ceremonies
the convention went into secret session.
This convention will differ from others
of the same body in that it is expected
more matters of public interest will de
velop than ever before. The relations of
the organization with the recently organ
ized United States Steel corporation are
of vital importance to wage-workers in
general, and the eye 3 of the entire labor
world are now turned upon the conven
tion's actions.
It is probable that nothing will develop
during the lirst week of the convention,
or until after the reports of the commit
tees have been completed and placed be

How a Chicago' Man ' Wan Rescued
From Drowning.
A"eu> York Sun Special Service
Chicago, May 21.—Forming a human
chain last night. Officer Thomas Malone
of the new city police station and three
men, Mandel Mendelsch, James Kelly and
Martin Corbott. succeeded in rescuing
James O'Donnell from the river. ;
O'Donnell is a brother of the two girls
who were accidentally drowned last Au
gust while boating in Washington park,
and was crossing the Thirty-fifth street
bridge when he fell Into the river. His
cries for help attracted the attention of
Officer Malone, who attempted to pull
him out, 'but failed, as he could not
reach him. Officer Malone called upon
Mendelsohn, and the latter, taking the
officer by the feet, lowered him at arm's
length from the bridge, but still the offi
cer could not reach O'Donnell.
Kelley then took hold of Mendensohn's
ankles and lowered both men, only to
find the officer was still six inches short
in his reach. Calling upon Corbett, who
is a big man, the men lost no time in
pressing him into service, making the
fourth link in the human chain. When
the men were again •• lowered Officer
Malone caught O'Donnell by the hair.
O'Donnell was taken to the county hos
pital in an unconscious condition by the
police, who had been summoned by Ma
lone after he reached the ground. All
four men were dizzy when rescued, and
complained of severe headaches.
Action of Board of Officers at West
Point Approved.
Washington, May 21.—Secretary Root
has approved the action of the board of
officers at West Point which recommend
ed the dismissal of five cadets and the
suspension of six others. This sustains
the course of Colonel Mills and the other
officers in the recent disturbances at the
Colonel Mills, superintendent of the
military academy, had a long consultation
with the secretary of war to-day relative
to recent disorders among the cadets. The
papers in the cases of the cadets who have
been tried for offenses against the au
thorities have been in the departm-^t for
some time, but have not been acted upon.
Superintendent Mills explained the con
dition at the academy, insisting that
many of the published reports were exag
gerated. The present difficulty grows out
of the attempt to suppress hazing, and the
restrictions that have been made in this
direction since Colonel Mills became su
perintendent. The superintendent spoke
in the highest terms of the cadets and
thought it was only a question of a short
time before the customary conditions
would be resumed. The matter of disci

The serving of lunches at the North
high school has proved to be most success
ful aufl every day a crowd of hungry
students swarm around the counter until
sandwiches and cookies have disappeared.
No great variety is offered, but the food
is wholesome and appetizing and just
what a student needs who has had his
breakfast hours before and whose lunch
eon is still some hours before him. Some
of the pupils of the North high school
come from Robbinsdale and Camden Place
and they have to breakfast early and lunch
late in order to attend school. It was for
the good of these pupils, who came three
or four miles, that the lunch counter was

A woman comes at S in the morning to
prepare the sandwiches, butter the cof
fee rolls and make the lemonade. She re
mains until 2 p. m., when everything is
cleared away. Just before thie bell rings
for recess the counter is wheeled out In
the hall. A committee of pupils serves
each week and the boys and girls don
white aprons and caps and take their
places behind the counter. Another bell
and the customers appear in groups of
half a dozen to a dozen.
Arrangements are very much simplified.
A committee is, in each room to sell tick
ets and a boy is stationed in the hall
with tickets for those who have not been
forehanded enough to secure them before
the hour. Prices are as reasonable as the
cost of material will allow. Sandwiches
and rolls are 2 cents apiece and lemonade
and milk 2 cents a glass. Home-made
cookies cost a penny apiece and bananas
are the same price as the rolls. Oranges
were sold for awhile, but when the price
of oranges went up it was found Imprac
ticable to sell them for such a small price
and bananas were substituted.
Luncheon for Two Cents.
A student can really get all the lunch
eon he needs for 2 cents, for the sand
wiches are generous in size and the rolls
are not small. The pupils make a volun
tary contribution of a penny apiece for
the purchase of spring water and about
fifteen gallons are used a day.
The committee in charge of the lunch
includes Miss Raphael Johnson, chairman;
Miss Hermine KonJg, treasurer; and Miss
Georgia Burgess, who has charge of the

object is to have the lunch wholesome,
not stimulating. Ice cream will be added

The Wise girls have again attracted the
attention of officers of the law. Their

others, they have thus far not succeeded
in breaking into that institution for any
considerable length of time. On the con
trary, tbey have at last been shut out.
For some time past the girls have been
making almost daily visits to Captain
Alexander's sky parlors at the courthouse,
showing a morbid desire to see the pris
oners and to converse with some of them.
They were admitted for a time, but their
visits became so frequent as to become
annoying to Captain Alexander and he de
cided to put a stop to their visits. Con
sequently, when they made their appear

less for them to return.

Special to The Journal.
Pierre, S. D., May 21.— The smallpox
fright between Pierre and Fort Pierre has
reached an acute stage, all communica
tion between the two .towns being shut
off, so far as passengers are concerned.
The big herd of it,ooo cattle shipped in
here by "Scotty" Philips from Texas, was
allowed to pass quarantine by the Stan
ley county authorities, but a general and
rigid quarantine has been otherwise de
clared against Pierre which includes mer
chandise as well as persons. Arrange
ments have been made to pass the horses
which are now rounded up on the west
side of the river in readiness for the
horse sale which is to be held in Pierre
on. the 22d. Owners, but no attendants
will be permitted to come to Pierre with
the stock.
Fort Pierre people are smarting under
the quarantine restrictions and efforts to
retaliate against Pierre are being made.
An indignation meeting was held there
last week and Dr. Layery, their local
health officer, was severely arraigned for
having failed to take precautionary meas
ures sooner and for failing to keep up a
good quarantine now. The Chicago &
Northwestern railroad has been appealed
to for assistance in doing aay with the
Pierre quarantine on the threat that if
this is not done the range wool clip will
all be marketed at Chamberlain shipped
over the Milwaukee.
Dr. Ruble, local health officer at Pierre,
declares that if the people of Stanley
county had not persisted in violating the
quarantine laws he would not have made
the quarantine absolute, but that there
was no half way ground now. Only a few
days since State's Attorney Joseph Don
ohue of Fort Pierre, telegraphed Dr. Ed
wards, the superintendent of the state
board of health, that there was no quar
antine in Stanley county.
A wild rumor was in circulation that
two members of the state board of health
had come to town the night before for
the purpose of investigating the situation
and that the town of Pierre was to be
quarantined against all outside communi
cation, including railroad and mail con
nection with the east. These many ground
less reports have kept up the excitement,
which has no real foundation in the sit
uation, as there are no new cases of dis
ease to justify apprehension.

as one of the foming popular resorts for

hours from Minneapolis.

S. D. Towns at War Over the Mil-
wauk.ee Co."a New Schedule.
Special to The Journal.
Madison, S. D., May 21.—The railroad
problem in this city is rapidly assuming
a serious aspect. Sioux Falls is exerting
every effort to take from this city the
division of the Milwaukee railroad, while
Madisou is equally as active to prevent
the proposed change. For more than a
year past Sioux Falls and Madison have
co-operated in an attempt to get a new
railroad to open up the country between
the two cities and the city councils have
appropriated sums to aid in the work.
It now seems that Sioux Falls was in
terested In the proposed Sioux Falls-Mad
ison line only to the extent of using it
as a club with which to secure better
things from the Milwaukee company. This
proposed new road means a great deal,
not only to the promoting cities, but to
a large area of adjoining territory, for
several new towns are already in prospect.
The business men of Madison are deter
mined to see the new road built.
In case the new service goes into effect
on the Milwaukee, it Is openly hinted that
the merchants and business men of Mad
ison will withdraw their patronage from
Sioux Falls jobbers and deal altogether
with Minneapolis and St. Paul and Sioux
City jobbers and wholesale concerns.
Mass meetings have been held and some
very plain protests have been forwarded
to the Milwaukee officials. A meeting
was held last evening, at which the propo
sition to organize a local business men's
