Y. M. C. A. PROGRESS Opening of the International Jubilee Convention. REPORT OF WORLD-WIDE WORK Protest AgainMt Meeting in a Hall Adorned With Nude Statuary. Boston, June 12.—Work of the inter national jubilee convention of the Y. M. C, A., which began yesterday, was in full swiug in all its branches to-day. Pre sentation of the Y. If. C. A. problems and of subjects bearing on the progress of the work of fifty years was the main feature of to-day's program. The day opened with a praise service. Bruno Hobbs of Cripple Creek was chosen secretary of the convention. The first address of the day was given by Judge Selden €. Spencer of St. Liouis, who spoke on '"The Lessons of Fifty Years Y. M. C. A. oWrk." Herbert B. Ames of Montreal spoke on the contribu tion ol the Young Men's Christian Asso ciation toward the solution of the city problems. The report of the international commit tee opens with a summary which shows that up to 1901, there were 1,476 associa tions of which 1,354 reported an aggre gate membership of 268,477. The total property consisting of buildings, real estate and miscellaneous property was ■ $21,716,102. The report continues: In strong contrast with city association growth an apparently opposite tendency to decline and loss is noted in some of the smaller cities of 5,000 population and less, and in the country negihborhoods generally. In counteraction of this ten dency to decline, two growing forces are actively at work. Several state commit tees have established experimental or ganizations in villages and country places under other titles, such as "Sections," or "Bands." County organizations have also been formed in several states, under international and state leadership, and are slowly assuming a definite permanent form, promoting and perpetuating work for young men in villages and rural dis triots in a very encouraging way. The army and navy work has been developed into a permanent department. The de partment of railroad work alone has fur- nished over 50 per cent of the growth dur ing the past two years in the total num ber of associations of all kinds in North America and over 24 per cent of the total Increase in membership. There has been a marked growth of missionary interest 'in the home associations. Upon the for eign field, general and student develop ment In membership, in religious work and all other departments compares fa vorably with developments upon the American home field. Expense of the home work for 1899 was $129,620 and for 1900 $136,741. The army and navy work for 1900 cost $36,298 and Its budget for the present year is slightly larger than this amount. The expense was largely covered by contributions for this specific work. The total budget for the home depart ment for the year. 1901 calls for something over $160,000. Pledges received for the balance of the year are $21,700. This leaves $80,000 still to be obtained to meet the expenses of 1901. An analysis of the' recipts of 1900 shows that receipts from associations were $16,433, while the bal ance of $120,405 was made up from over 4,500 individuals. The treasurer's statement for 1900 shows receipts, $136,839; expenditures, $136,761. Receipts of the publication account, $31, --937. The expenses of this account were the same as the receipts. For the work in foreign lands the receipts were $39,321; expenditures $39,076. The jubilee fund of $1,000,000 authorized by the last conven tion has been a little more than half sub- •The first sensation among the delegates came when a protest was made against the meeting scheduled to be held in the Mu seum oi Pine Arts, where nude statuary is a feature. It was contended that the holding of a reception to both sexes In ■& place Where nude statuary was exhibited, would commit the association to an appro val of such displays. A letter was finally drawn up, signed by several delegates, who objected to the holding of the reception at the Art Museum. This letter was sent to the jubilee executive committee. The jubilee committee, after discussing the letter, voted to place it on file, and this action agitated the objectors to such an extent that they instantly held a meet- Ing, a result of which was the drawing up of a remarkable declaration, or protest. The report of the committee on nomina tion of officers was as follows: President, William E. Dodge, New York; honorary president, Howard Williams, Lon don, England; vice presidents, C. T. Wil liams, Montreal; James Stokes, New York; E. H. Thornton, Atlanta, Ga.; S. P. Spencer, St. Louis; C. H. McCormick, Chicago; H. M. Moore. Boston; W. S. Pattee, Minneapolis; S. W. Woodward, Washington, D. C; J. T. Hobur Rose, Portland, Ore.; J. C. Glass, Nova Scotia; James E. Hardy, Louisville; Henry Waterhouse, Hawaii; secretary, C. G. Michener, Chicago; assistant secretaries, A. G. Knebel, Ashville, X. C, and Henry W. Stone, Portland, Ore. This report was adopted and those named became the permanent officers of the convention.

The owners have built wagon roads to the entrance and are employing several men in opening up new passage ways. The character of the crystal work is different than in either W rind or Crystal cave, in that it is finer in texture. NOW WE KNOW, SURELY \\ M.1.1 AM BRYAN OITSPEAKETH None of In Can Hereafter Plead I*> norance on the Subject of Imperiling in. Hmw York Sun Somolml Smrvlom. LJucoln. Neb., June 12.—William J. Bryan did not care last night to directly discuss the personal statement of Presi dent McKinley declining a third term nomination. His Commoner this week will comment on the third term idea in part as follows: A third terni is a small innovation com pared with the changes which have already •been effected; but it is in perfect harmony with colonial ideas. In the last campaign tho republicans claimed that the Filipinos were encouraged by the prospects of a change in administration. The same argument can be made at any time when a state of war ex ists anywhere in the empire, and a state of war generally does exist somewhere in an empire. Imperialism would not be tolerated but for the spirit of commercialism which is abroad in the land, and commercialism, equally with imperialism, protests against frequent elections. When you admit the principle of imperialism, those who are placed in charge of the government ■will be able to enlarge upon the principle until all of the truths once supposed to be self-evident -are denied and silenced.

A writer In one of the current monthlies undertakes to enumerate the good things which America has given to the world. He lists maple sugar, the turkey, the to mato, Indian corn, tobacco, and a host of other things, but totally neglects the po tato, which is in more general use than any other vegetable. And this reminds us that one of the lesser encyclopedias gravely declares that the potato is a native of Great Britain and that it was "brought to the American settlements from Ireland"—a half truth which is quite as reprehensible as a full falsehood. When the Spaniards penetrated Mexico they found the natives eating, as one of the chroniclers of that day quaintly said: "Certain roots or bulbs which grow at the ends of stems in the ground and which are called 'batata.' " The standard en cyclopedias note that the potato is a native of South America, Mexico, and other tropical American countries, ami that it made its first appearance in Europe ■when carried there from Peru by Spanish explorers at the beginning of the sixteenth century. It was also found in Florida and from there it was carried to Virginia and thence to England by Sir John Hawk ins in 1565. A century later we find the Royal Geographical Society laboring for its Introduction into Ireland on the suppo sition that it would afford a certain means of forestalling famine, and a few years later it came from Ireland into the set tlements of New England—a fact which gave rise to the encyclopedic error which we have noted. And this circuitous route from Virginia to New England shows how little there is in common be tween the "rakehellies" of Virginia and their Puritan neighbors on the north. The potato is probably dispersed more widely among the people of the earth than any other American products with the single exception of tobacco. Indian corn, now grown to be our greatest agri cultural staple and one of the best life sustainers known, is little used by the world at large. But tobacco, with no life-sustaining qualities whatever, is known in every land and dime. Its wide spread and enormous consumption is one of the wonders of the world, for no drug, food or other substance ever came into such general use in so short a space of time. A letter has reached Denmark from Dr. Sven Hedin, the Swedish explorer of Northern Tibet, dated Dec* 3, in which he states he explored Borne large salt lakes. WENT OFF LIKE HOT CAKES LOTS IN NEW TOWN OF CHISHOLM Splendid Site on the Mciaba- The Warmest Kind of a Town in ProMMect. Special to The Journal, Hibbing, Minn., June 12.—The sale of lots in the aew village of Chlabolin, four miles northeast of here, has been a record breaker.

JOHN STAINER AND THE HARMONIUM London Chronicle. Not long ago Sir John Stainer was in a small Swiss village, and the English clergyman was on the lookout for a mu sician to essist at the service. Stainer was In the smoking-room of the hotel when the clergyman found him, and started tlie conversation with: "Do you play the harmonium?" "A little," was the reply of the ex-organist of St. Paul's cathedral. "Will you, then, be good enough to help us out of our difficulty on Sunday? We will read the Psalms,"and the hymns shall be the simplest I can se lect," added the delighted parson. "I will do my best," said Stainer, with a smile. The service passed off all right; but the congregation, instead of rushing away at the close, listened to a brilliant recital. WTien the parson heard the name of his assistant he asked him to dinner. "Do you smoke?" he said at the close. "I will do my best," muttered Stainer, and the ensuing laughter was the prologue of an entertaining exchange of Oxford reminis cences. Stainer was a great story-teller. One anecdote he was fond of relating had ref erence to the days when there were ama teur orchestras in churches. "The Mes siah" was being sung and as the line ap proached, "Who is the King of Glory?" the man playing the double bass whis pered to the violencellist in front of him, "Let us have your resin and I'll show 'em who is the king of glory!"

ROCKHILLI His Arbitration Scheme Comprises the Fixing; of the Entire Indemnity. Washington, June 12. —Mr. Rockhill's proposition to submit the indemnity ques tion to The Hague tribunal, it is now learned, carries with it the adjustment of the total of the indemnity. Through a misunderstanding which perhaps was pur posely created by some of the powers, the sum of 450,000,000 taels was supposed to have been finally agreed upon by all those powers as the total of indemnity to be de manded from China. As a matter of fact, there is nothing official to show that the sowers, or, in deed a majority of them, actually made this a matter of formal agreement. It is true that China undertook to pay an in demnity of 450,000,000 taels but it is equal ly true that this undertaking, doubtless based upon the misunderstanding above referred to. was at least in advance of a formal agreement among the ministers themselves. Hence Mr. Rockhill's propo sition to Include the total of the indem nity in the matters to be submitted to The Hasue arbitration. European criticisms based upon the idea that Mr. Rockhill's proposition as to ar bitration concerns only the method of pay ment are therefore founded in error. The hope that the arbitration plan will prevail is based upon the belief that no other scheme so far brought forward is suffi cient. MRS. McKINLEY STILL MENDING.
