believed that there was better mis

At the close of the address, which seemed to
stir the assembly with its Are and Seal, the mod
erator asked the assembly to rise and sing two
verses of the famous misimonary hymn. "From
Greenland's Ioy Mountain." The re
sponse was a hearty one, the members
of the assembly springing to their feet and
swelling out the harmony of this grand old
hymn with telling effect. The devotional spirit
aroused was expressed in the words of the
prayer which was offered by Rev. Dr. Graham
at the suggestion of the moderator and which
asked the Divine bleseang an the work of for

The consideration of the subject of the work
of foreign missions was then resumed, Be. Dr.

made in the foreign 1ide.
Dr. George D. Baker of Phiadelphia fol
lowed. Before he spoke Dr. Roberts, who had
taken the chair, stated that the moderator had
withdrawn from the home to perform a
marriage ceremony for a life-long Mend.
Dr. Baker mde an eloquent address urging
pastors to preach in behalf of foreign mission
work.
Rev. Gilbert Reid of the Sheatuang Mission,
China, also spoke. He deplored the fact that
those who were in the midst of the work and
could best tell its needs were not given the ep

thought every day should be days of self

read a call to prayer lssued to all Christians by
the synod of India. He meid that the Roman
Catholic Churcn met aside certain days for self
denial, but he hoped the Preebyterlan Church
would not.
A memaber of the committee took exceptiorn
to what he considered an imputation of Rom

Dr. Lucae offered to the "week of prayer''

urging constant prayer.

The AMtirneen Sesen.
Before the assembly convened for the after

in the house and of art and nature in the gar

chairs ware set out, so that those
who preferred to do so might sit and

pleasure. Several pretty marquae tents were
standing in this part of the grounds and from
these was served a bountiful collation of Ices,
strawberries, cakes and lemonades. The hours
of this garden fete were from 4 to 6, and it was
with regret on the part of all that they realized
that the time had arrived when they must leave

THE LIQUOR LAW TEST CASm.
Henry Bash. Convieted in the Pollee Court,
New Bes the Court of Appeas.
This morning the ease of Henry Bush,
convicted in the Police Court on the
27th of March last on an informa
tion charging him with keeping a
bar room contrary to the provisions of the act
of Congress regulating the liquor traffic in the
District, approved March 8, 1898. was
taken up in the Court of Appeals, the
District being represented by Mr. S. T.
Thomas, the attorney for the District, and by
his assistant, Mr. James L. Pugh, Jr. The
plaintiff in error, Bush, was represented by
Gen. William Birney and Mr. Henry E. Davis.
Mr. A. S. Worthington also appeared in the
case as the representative of a number of deal
We not directly in the case, who would be
equally affected by the enforcement of the act.
court room was crowded when the argu
ments were commenced, a majority of those
present being persons engaged in the liquor
trafie in the District.
M. woRTRINGToN's OPENING.
Mr. Worthington opened the case for the
plaintiff in error, Bush, briefly outlining the
case. He stated that the main ques
tion at issue was whether the act
of March 8, 1896, prohibited those dealers in
esesss'on of licenses granted under the old
w from continuing in business un
der those licenses during the remainder
of the license year. He conceded that
the granting of a license under the old law
was not such contract as was incapable of
being annulled by an act of Congress, but
he did contend that the new law
neither contemplated nor in fact did
revoke existing licenses. In support of
his contention that Congress did not
intend that such a thing should
be done, Mr. Worthington cited numerous au
thoritiss which he claimed held that even
where the sale of liquor was prohibited
licenses previously granted for its sale could
not be disturbed. In the present case the Die
triet virtually said that the money paid under
the old law for licenses would be refunded, but
that new licenses, at much higher rates, should
be taken out.
Judge Morris-"Would it not require an act
of Congress to refund the money already paid
in?'
Mr. Worthington--"Yes, sir. There is no
question as to that, your honor."
Continuing, Mr. Worthington said that the
license year in the District for twenty-two
years had run from November 1 to Novem
ber 1, and the licenses in force
at the passage of the new law
ran from November 1, 1892, to November 1,
1898. If the new law. as construed in the
Bush case by the Police Court, was held
good, then *the absurd proposition would
be maintained that every person who
sold or drank liquor since March 8 last was
egually as gul tv. In conclusion, Mr.
Worthington said that the proposi
tion that the new law was a retro
active one was too preposterous for
serious contention, and he felt assured that the
decision of Judge Miller in the Police Court
would not be affirmed by the court.
M. BINEY's ARGOMENT.
Mr. Birney followed Mr. Worthington for
Bush, saying that the sole offense charged
against his client was that he sold liquor
under a license granted under the
old law. In his defense in the Police Court
Bush had offertd in evidence th3 license
granted him under the old law, but the offer
was overruled, and a verdict of guilty
followed. Congress. said Mr. Birney must have
known, and undoubtedly did know, that
some 050.000 had been paid into the
treasury on account of licenses granted
under the old law, and yet in the
new law no provision was made for
a refunding of differences between the old and
new rates. Bo Congress undoubtedly contem
FLated that the old licenses should continue in
orce until the term for which they were
granted.
THE NEW TORK HERALD SITUATION.
What That Paper Says About It.
From the New York Herald.
Because the proprietor of the Herald recently
saw At to remove his name from the editorial
page, Reuter's agency cabled to Europe the
following absurd report, which appeared in the
principal European papers:
The name of James Gordon Bennett no lonsrer ap
pears at the head of the editorisl -awre and Mr. Ben
nett brief visit to hew Ycrk ift eilained by the
announcement that the Herald property i% to be
turned into a Joint stock company. AMr. bennett re
taininw the controllina Intetest. The capital stock is
to be 02.0o00,00.
This report is absolutely without foundation,
and as the ridiculous purchase price mentioned
shows obvious malice the proprietor of the
Herald has instructed George Lewis,
seq., of London to Inform Reuter's
agency that unless they publish a categorical
denial of the ridiculous report emanating
from them-that the Herald would be
turned into a stock company with a capital of
02,000,000-and print the substance of this edi
torial, which appears simultaneously in the
European and New York editions of the Herald,
legal proceedings for libel will be taken against
them. In case this action comes into court we
think that Mr. Lewis will have no difficulty in
proving all requisite malice prepense.
About two months ago Reuter's agency had
the run. to use a slang expression, of the Herald
office. Their agent had access in New York to
all our telegrams, not only from all parts of the
United States, but also fronm Mexico,
Panama, South America, Canada and
elsewhere. But their news service to
Europe was so akeletonized that the -pro
prietor of the Herald withdrew the privilege
and cabled the Herald's news at his own ex
pense to the London papers, on coddition of
their publishing it with credit and for no
peuniary compensation. This, perhaps, has
ben one of Reuter's reasons for publishing the
libeL.
The Herald today is at the height of Its
prosperity, and any syndicate having for its
sole object making money could easily earn
6 per cent on 020,000,000 by taking
off extra expenses for special cabling
for now the United Press Is quite
effective enough under the able super
vision of Messrs. Laffan and Phillips-re
ducing the extraordinary salaries 020,000.
which some members of the Herald staff re
ceive, cutting down also some of the .15.000
and @10,000 salaries and curtailing many of the
@5.000 salaries, besides numerous other econo
miss that would at o.nce be effected, supposing
the Herald to be simply a corporation like an
ordinary railroad or factory.
The present proprietor, it is true, has in view
the formation of a co-operative society, but one
for the solo benefit of the members of the
Herald staff, including the general manager,
city editor, news editor, night editor, all edi
tors, correspondents, reporters, artists,
cashier, clerks, foremen, press and com
posing rooms, pnroof readers, composi
tors, printers, exchange readers, ship
ping clerks, telegraph clerks, advertising clerks,
messengers, porters, firemen, machinists-for
they are all members of the Hetrald staff, are
they not?-and not for any stock jobbing or
speculative purposes, as has been dune so often
In England anid America. This co-operative
societyv may be formed at any moment by the
proprietor whencver he thinks proper.
The founder of the Herald disposed of it
a few years before his death for one dollar
to Its present proprietor, and in order to
avoid any post mortem interference by polit
ically biased courts under guise of a pro
ceeding for the legal construction of a will,
as in the Tilden will case not long ago, the pro
prietor of the Herald proposes to follow
the example of its founder and direct the dis
position of the Herald without outside inter
vention of any kind. He believes that in pr
petuating the property in this way he can bet
build a lasting and living monument to Its
founder, James Gordon Bennett the elder.
The removal of the name of the proprietor
from the editorial page had no .significance
other than that its further retention was
deemed unnecessary. ISo learned a judge as
Lord Chief Justice Coleridge recently pro
claimed from the English bench that the
"New York Herald and Bennett are svn
onymous." The names of Messrs. Howland,
Rleick and Henderson that appear on the eli
torial page were placed there by the proprietor
because he reserves the privilege of selecting
his own executives and desires credit to be
given where credit is due.
The End of the ReviewIng Fleet.
On the 81st instant, next Wednesday, the
U. IL naval review fleet, which has been the
object of patriotic pride on the part of all
Americans, will become a thing of the past. A
formal order Issued from the Navy Department
today announces that upon the hauling down
of the flag of Rear Admiral Bancroft Gherardli
on the 31st instant the naval review dleet, as an
organization, will cease to exist.

THE NICARAGUAN REVOLUTION.
Reports of the Defeat of the Goverasmest
Net Credited by Its Friends.
Information received here by cable from
Nicaragua from sources known to favor the
cause of the government strongly discredit the
reports which have been published of severe de
feats sustained by the government forces in
that country. Theeable states that the reported
heavy engagements were nothingimorethan pre
liminary skirmishes and that the government
forces are being thoroughly organized and
largely augmented preparatory to doing battle,
which it is confidently predicted will result in
the annihilation of the revolutionary army.
BETOLUTIONIsTS DEsTITUTZ or ARTILLERT.
It is stated further that the revolutionists are
almost destitute of artillery, while the govern
ment forces are splendidly equipped In this re
spect. The charge is made that the
revolutionary party has been materially
aided by supplies of arms and
money coming principally from the United
State.. This impression has aroused a feeling
of resentment among the neighboring Central
American republics, and according to the cable
gram Sacaza's forces will now receive
substantial reinforcements and supplies from
the government of Salvador, while Guatemala
is lending her moral support and enconrage
ment to the same cause.
NO INFOEMATION AT TEE STATE DEPARTMENT.
The State Department has no information on
the subject, and surprise is expressed at the
continued silence of United States Ministet
Baker, who has not communicated with
the department since his arrival at the Nica
raguan capital, at least two weeks ago. The
cable station at San Juan del Sur is in the hands
of the revolutionists. That would explain
why we get so little information regarding the
movements of the government force., but it
certainly fails to explain why we don't get
some official information in regard to rumored
revolutionary victories.
GEN. CROOK'S MONUMENT.
It Will Not Be the Subjeft of Special Exer
else, on Memorial Day.
The plan to have special ceremonies at the
Crook monument at Arlington on Memorial
day has been abandoned. This is
due to the Impossibility of secur
Ing a representative gathering here
on that day of Gen. Crook's old com
rades of the Army of West Virginia, which so
ciety was mainly instrumental in se
curing funds for the monument. Another
reason for the change of plans is
that the monument has already been dedicated
with due ceremony, making further services of
that kind almost unnecessary.
The dedication took place last September
during the encampment of the Grand Army of
the Republic. and commemorative addresses
were made over the grave of the noted Indian
fighter by ex-President Hayes and Gov. Mc
Kinley.
The monument is entirely finished and open
to public inspection. It will be decorated with
flowers on Memorial day. but it will not be the
subject of special ceremonies on that occasion.
ALEXAN DRIA.
THE CITY FINANCIAL SYSTEM oF 1893-94.
The city council held its regular meeting last
night and agreed with the finance committee
upon the financial policy of the year. The
taxes will remain the same, except in regard to
real estate agents and photographers. It
was stated that while photographers having
galleries have paid 015 per annum tax
photographers from Washington and elsewhere
came to the city, took pictures of places of in
terest and sold them without paying a license
tax. The law was amended so as to require a
license tax of @15 on any photoarapher who
shall do business in this city. The city tax
remains as last year, 02 on each hundred
dollars value of real or personal estate, with dis
count for prompt payments. The annual ap
propriation bill making #93.500 appropria
tions for the current expenses of the year
was introduced and laid over because two
thirds of the members of the council were not
present.
CAPT. MOODT's CASE.
Mr. C. E. Moody of Boston, treasurer of the
Virginia Iron Ship Building Company, whose
property was I ecently sold here for taxes, made
a statement to the city council last night that
he had Invested *75.325 in the plant
here and loot it all. He was quite severe
on President Archer of Washington. manager
of the Vapor Fuel Company, and denounced
him in no measured terms. Capt. Moody. with
Mr. K. Kemper, his attorney, asked a refund of
a proportion of tbe taxes received, alleging that
while the property was assessed at 060,000 it
brought only e29,000 at the forced sale.
A LITTLE LAD EILLED.
A terrible accident last night deprived of life
Frank Mudd. the eight-year-old son of a widow,
living on Prince near Fayette street. The lad was
trying to get a ride on one of the cars of the
freight train which passed along Fayette street,
but fell off. and the wheels passed over him,
cutting off both lep. He died about 11:30 p. m.
An inquest will be held by the coroner.

the important events that have occurred there,

for the system, too, in the genuine
Johann Hoff's Malt Extract, which
