Seleeto?l at Anti-Tammany Conference b>- Almost 1 nauimous Vote. The New York Tribune of today says: By an almost unanimous vote the anti Tammany conference last night selected Seth Low as its candidate for mayor. Of seventy men who were in conference when the final vote was taken sixty-eight voted in favor of a report to nominate Mr. Low. Herman Ridder and another German voted against the report. The vote was reached about 11 o'clock, after there had been a debate of three hours on the report, which was presented by the subcommittee of eighteen. After selecting Mr. Low as the anti Tammany candidate for mayor the confer Seth Low. ence adjourned to meet_ again tomorrow evening, when candidates'for controller and | president of the board of aldermen will be j chcsen. It was the expression of the con j ference that t/oth these candidates should j be independent democrats, the candidate ; for controller to be a Brooklyn man and j the candidate for president of the board of aldermen to be a resident of Manhattan. The conference began to assemble in the Citizens' Union headquarters, in Union Square, about 8 o'clock, and shortly after that hour it was called to order by Colonel j Ogden, the chairman, who reported that Mr. Low's name had been selected almost unanimously by the committee of eighteen. Mr. Ridder moved to substitute the name of Bird S. Coler for that of Seth Low in the report. He withdrew his motion a minute later, when Jacob A. Cantor moved to have the report recommitted. Then for more than two hours there was a discus sion, in which many members of the con ference took par.t. In the end Mr. Can tor's motion to recommit the report was defeated by a vote of 51 to 11. CHICAGO'S TRIBUTE OP RESPECT. Great Paneral Profession Follows n I)raped Empty Carriage. CHICAGO, September 10.?The noises of a great city were hushed and its commerce suspended for a few moments today while mourning thousands paid their last tribute to the memory of William McKinley. The ! silence was broken alone by muffled bells tolling cft the fifty-eight years of the dead President's life. During the forenoon services were held in nearly all churches, and the virtues of Will iam McKinley as a man and as a President were sung. A big memorial meeting will be heli? at the Auditorium this evening. Between 20,000 and 25,000 men marched in the funeral procession which followed a draped carriage. Its empty seats were more eloquent than words of the nation's loss. In this carriage two years ago the Presi dent rode through long aisles of applauding people. Unfurled near the carriage was a flag which had flown over the President on occasions of rejoicing in Chicago, in Canton and in Washington. In common with other cities, all business not already suspended stopped at 2:30 p.m. for five minutes. For the first time in history the pulsing heart of Chicago's commerce ceased almost en tirely, while sorrowing citizen i stood with doffed hats in respectful silence. Business generally was suspended during the day, and the streets were draped in mourning. Mass of Requiem. A solemn high mass of requiem will be chanted tomorrow morning at 0 o'clock at Trinity Church, corner of 36th and O streets, for the repose of the soul of Mrs. Catherine Mulvaney, the mother of the pastor, who recently died at Mlddletown, N. Y. Rev. Father Mulvaney, S. J., will be the cele brant, while Rev. Joseph C. Mallon. pas tor of St. Ann's Church, Tenleytown, will be deacon and Rev. Father Caughey. pas tor of St. Stephen's Church, subdeacon. BREAD DYSPEPSIA. THE DIGESTING ELEMENT LEFT OUT. Bread dyspepsia is common. It affects the bow els because white bread is nearly all starch, and starch Is digested in the Intestines, not in the stomach proper. Lp under the shell of the wheat berry Nature has provided a curious deposit which Is turned into diastase when It Is subjected to the saliva and to the pancreatic juices In the huinau in testines. This diastase Is absolutely necessary to digest starch and turn It Into grape-sugar, which Is the next form; but that part of the wheat berry makes dark flour, and the modern tulller cannot readily sell dark flour, so nature's valuable dlgestor Is thrown ont and the human system must handle the starch as best It can, without the help that Nature Intended. Small wonder that appendicitis, peritonitis, con stipation and ail sorts of trouble exist, when we go so coutrary to Nature's law. The food experts that perfected Grape-Nuts Food, knowing these facts, made use, in their experiments, of the entire wheat and barley, including all the parts, and subjected them to moisture, and long-contin ued warmth, which allows time and the proper conditions for developing the diastase, outside the human body. In this way the starchy part Is transformed Into grape-su^ar in a perfectly natural manner, with out the use of chemicals or any outside ingredi ents. The little sparkllug crystals of grape-sugar can be seen on the pieces of Grape-Nuts. This foq0, therefore, is naturally pre-digested, and its use in place of bread will quickly correct the troubles that have been brought about by the too free use of starch In the food, and that Is very common In the human race today. The effect of eating Grape-Nuts ten days or two weeks and the discontinuance of ordinary white tread is very marked. The user will gain rapidly in strength and physical and mental health. DEMOCRATS SCARED Alarm Among the Faithful in Vir ginia Ofer the Outlook. EFFECT OF SUFFRAGE DISGDSSIOM Mr. Montague Tries to Allay Sus picion of Masses. REPUBLICAN ACTIVITY Special Correspondence of The Evening Star. RICHMOND, Va., September 18, 1901. "The democratic party will keep its pledge; no white man will be deprived of his vote, and many good colored men will be allowed to exercise the right of suffrage. I am no prophet, yet I venture the prediction that the suffrage clause will contain no prop erty qualification. These statements are based on direct and latest information, and will be found as correct as human forecasts can well be." The quotation above is from the first speech of Attorney General Montague in opening the campaign at Chatham, in his home county, on Monday last. Just whom Mr. Montague's Informant was as to the anticipated action of the suffrage commit tee, which is now wrestling with the suf frage proposition, is not known, but his statement is not in accordance with the action of the committee. Since the assem bling of the convention the committee has been in almost daily conference on the sub ject, and the fact is that the majority of the committee have agreed on what is known as the Thom proposition, which re quires the payment of taxes on property to the amount of at least $1 as a prerequisite to exercising the right of suffrage, in ad dition to paying a capitation tax of $1.50. There is no question that the convention in postponing action on the method of en acting the new constitution?whether it shall be proclaimed, submitted to an abridged or the full electorate?is causing all sorts of trouble, and a good deal of un easiness has begun to manifest itself as to the success of the democratic ticket in the coming election. In all conclaves of lead ers the matter is being discussed with alarm. The people do not know whether they are to be allowed to vote on the ques tion or not, nor do they know that the constitution is not to be forced upon them, notwithstanding what was understood to be a pledge to allow the voters to have an opportunity to pass upon the work of the convention. Sentiment of the Convention. The sentiment in the convention is by no means a Unit on the question of sub mission, some of the ablest leaders in that body having made speeches in favor of submitting the work of the convention to electorate as at present constituted. The members from the rural districts?those who are in closest touch with the people who are most affected by the operations of the proposed changes?are the leaders in favor of submitting to the present electo rate. The "white" counties want all the people to vote, while the representatives from the "black belt" are in favor either of an abridged electorate or of proclaim ing the constitution. It is in the white counties that the greatest danger lies to the success of the party. Delegate Wysor of Pulaski is convinced that the state tick et will be jeopardized at the coming elec tion by reason of the convention postpon ing the determination of this important matter. The republican state ticket is regarded as a good one, and the nominees have taken the stump in a manner that indicates a determination to make a canvass such as has not been seen in the old dominion for years. The republicans are using the speeches of Mr. Montague in the contest for the nomination in which he charged that a ring existed in the state by which the will of the people was being thwarted, and that he was in favor of honest elec tions, pledging his efforts to a purification of all the evils said to exist as a natural result of "ring" politics. It is the inten tion of the republicans to keep Mr. Mon tague and the whole state ticket on the de fensive in the campaign, and the boast is openly made that the convention is doing more to make the election of the repub lican ticket certain than anything the re publican campaigners could say in their speeches on the stump. Workinfciuen Will Vote Repnbliean Ticket. One of the best known politicians in the state told your correspondent a day ot two ago that he had been in consultation with men from all parts of the state and that the consensus of opinion was that a ma jority of the workingmen of the state would this fall vote the -republican ticket, par ticularly in the manufacturing and indus trial centers, due to the conditions pre vailing in the various branches of busi ness. In proof of the statement that the repub licans are sanguine of success it is an nounced that they will make nominations for the house of delegates and senate, the prospects being so much brighter through out the state than was at first anticipated. They are claiming that if Mr. Montague adheres to his declaration to give an honest election he will see that a majority of the members of the legislature elected this fall will be opposed to him politically, and that he will fail of election himself. It is no secret that Mr. Montague has alienated a great many of the most active political workers of the state by what is denomi nated his savage attack on the party man agement. notwithstanding the fact that he is now attorney general of the state by and with the aid and consent of the al leged political machine in Virginia, and it is believed that a great many of the erst while leaders and managers?the fellows who are charged by the republicans with having done the counting in many con tests?will allow Mr. Montague to have his way and give him an honest election by holding aloof from active participation in the campaign. And if the threat, as re ported, is carried out, then if Mr. Montague is elected it will be by a majority of less than one-fourth of that received by Gov ernor Tyler four years ago. That Virginia is good fighting ground for the republicans no one who knows anything of conditions will deny. FAIR, FROSTS TONIGHT. Friday Fair. Light Northerly Wind*.

For Five Minutes, Beginning at 2i.'lO O'CloeU, There Was a Special Mark of Respect. There was almost a complete paralysis of business in Washington for five minutes at 2:30 o'clock this afternoon. Hardly a hand of industry or commerce moved. Everything was still and quiet. The cessa tion of operations was ordered and executed out of respect to the memory of the late President. At 1:30 o'clock, Canton time, the funeral services over his remains be gan at his Ohio home. That was 2*30 o'clock, Washington time. From 2:30, the minute when the exercises began, until 2:35, Washington bowed its head and prayed. The steam railroad shops hushed their hum, clogged their wheels and the men laid down their tools. Even the tele phone bells were given their quietus. All was inanimate and lifeless. It was a silent but forceful tribute to the memory of the late President, and all Washington knew that the services at Canton had begun. In Other Section*. As it was in Washington so was it throughout the country. In some places open prayer was held upon the streets. In Chicago, for example, the request was made of those riding in the street cars, stopped at the appointed time, to sing the late chief magistrate's hymn, "Nearer, My God, To Thee." All branches of trade and industry was estopped. The country, in re sponse to the feelings of the people, was dead. In Washington orders were given early this morning by the managers of the street railroad companies to discontinue opera tions for five minutes at 2:30 o'clock. Mo tormen and conductors were to'.d to stop in their tracks, wherever they might be, at exactly 2:30. These directions were pro mulgated by both the Washington and the Capital Traction Companies. As a result there was no street car traffic in the city during the five minutes indicated. At the steam railroad depots a somewhat similar plan of operation was followed. The working shops were closed. The me chanics laid down their tools, closed the forge, the furnace and the lathe. The men all deserted their work, and from each there went up a silent prayer for the soul of the departed. No ,;one talked in those shops. All was still. The Chesapeake and Onto Telephone Company stopped Aperations during the same period, and Major Sylvester, super intendent of police, gave orders of the same character affecting tjke police de partment. Order* to Police. Major Sylvester had telephoned the fol lowing order to the various station houses: "Out of respect for the memory of our late President during the funeral hour be tween 2:30 and 2:35 o'clock p.m., for a period of five minutes, the members and employes of this department will suspend all manner of activ^ work in writing, sending telephone messages, and no work of any kind shall be done." Business at the police stations was sus pended, and the policemen upon the beats as stated stopped wheTe they stood in silent reverence. The firemen, under or ders from Robert W. Dutton, chief en gineer, were all brought to attention at the various headquarters and remained so for the five minutes. The Associated Press, the great news gatherer of the country, which know no limit to Its working hours and which Is indefatigable, closed for the first time in its history. It didn't hunt for news during those few brlej .moments, and also refrained from disseminating its reports to the reading world. The Evening Star was mindful of the occasion. During the five minutes all Its operations in the mechanical and editorial department were suspended and the plant remained inactive. Fully 00 per cent of the business houses of the city .were closed during the entire day. .The suspension, extended. to every line of trade. Even the saloons were closed In some sections of the city. PROPOSED MEMORIAL ARCH COMMITTEE OP CHICAGO CITIZEN'S IS SELECTED. Initiative la Movement for a Costly Straetnre in Wash ington. From the Chicago Record-Herald. Chicagoans will take up today for definite discussion the matter of erecting in the city of Washington a memorial arch to William McKinley. Alexander H. Revell proposed the plan Monday aft^noon to members of the Union League Club, and it became popular. At an informal meeting Mr. Revell presented his resolution and various addresses and sug gestions were made. It was decided to se lect a citizens' committee whose duty it should be to decide whether or not such an undertaking would be warranted and feasi ble. President Foster of the Union League Club was asked to select a committee which should act upon the matter either for or against the Revell plan. Accordingly Mr. Foster announced yesterday the names of this memorial arch committee: A. H. Revell, chairman: Henry Sherman Boutell, John C. Shaffer, Edward S.Lacey, II. H. C. Miller, Walter C. Hately, Andrew McLeish. Viewi of the Members. The committee will assemble this after noon at the Union League Club and decide upon a course of procedure. Members of the committee were interviewed later by the Record-Herald. Mr. Shaffer, who is publisher and editor of the Chicago Post and who talked on the subject at the meet ing Monday afternoon, did not wish to go on record as being for or against the propo sition until the committee should have m?t. Mr. Hately said he had no opinion to ex press. I Henry Sherman Boutell said: "I think the people, without regard to political ties, ad mired and loved and trusted William Mc Kinley. I believe the idea originated by Mr. Revell a good one, but I am sure there should be a spontaneous response, and that the memorial fund should be subscribed for without delay, so that there will be no de lay, as there has been in connection with other monumehts and memorials to famous characters. Each contributor, though, might be given a sonvenir testimonial for his subscription, but no subscription should be too small to be accepted." H. H. C. Miller said: "Abundant assur ance of success should precede any formal action by the Chicago citizens' committee." Will Rejoice to Contribute. Edward S. Lacey said: "I think President McKinley was nearer to the hearts of all the people of the United States than any other President who had preceded him. The people will be glad, in my opinion, of an opportunity to help erect a memorial ajch in the capital city both in testimony of his great public service and in condem nation of the manner of his taking away." Mr. Revell said he favored the plan of tne people contributing every cent as against the suggestion made by Mr. Bou tell that if the fund were not completed in this way Congress should provide the bal ance. "The smallest subscription should not be despised ' he said, "and the schoolboy s nickel should be accepted with as much gratitude as the millionaire's thousand dollar offering." Chairman Revell denied that any speci fic "H'Th been mentioned in connec dol?,? E i k ?em?rial arch. A million dollars, it is believed, could be raised. REGRET AXD SORROW.

Whipple of the Protest ant Episcopal Church, who died at his home in Faribault. Minn., Monday morn ing. was one of the most widely known clergymen in this country. Bishop Whipple was born at Adams, N. Y., in 1822, and was educated in private schools. He prepared for college, but on account of feeble health turned his atten tion to mercantile pursuits and took an active interest in politics for several years. At one time he was prominent in the state militia, holding a colonelcy. Upon decid Binhop Henry B. Whipple. ing to study for the ministry he followed a theological course under Dr. William D. Wilson, who was afterward professor in Cornell University. Young Whipple was ordained deacon in Trinity Church. Geneva. N. Y., in lS4t^ and In th? following year was ordained priest in Christ Church, Sackett's Harbor, both by Bishop De Lan cey. He received the degree of D. D. from Hobart and Racine colleges. He was called to Zion Church, Rome. X. Y., in 1850, and the parish increased so rapidly under his rectorship that he soon built a handsome stone church. He subse quently went to Chicago, where he estab lished the free church system. While there he also devoted much time to the Swedish work. During his rectorship In 1859 he was by unanimous vote elected to the epis copate, and was consecrated first bishop of Minnesota in St. James Church. Richmond, Va., Bishop Kemper being one of the con secrators. The diocese over which he had been chosen to preside extended over 81.251* square miles. One of the chief and probably the most enduring of Bishop Whipple's works was th ; founding of schools at Faribault, Minn., which have attained world-wide repute. He laid the cornerstone of the beautiful stone buildings of St. Mary's Hall for Girls, Seabury Divinity School and the Cathedral of the Merciful Savior at Faribault, the very first cathedral erected in the United States. He passed most of his time In the evangelization of the Sioux, Chippewas and other tribes of Indians, and received from them the name of "Straight Tongue," because he never lied to them. The bishop was appointed by different Presidents of the United States upon important Indian commissions to make treaties with the red men. He was a recognized authority on all phases of the Indian question. His cour ageous struggle against the Iniquitous sys tem carried on by the Indian agents of the government when he stood alone in the fight, his masterly pleas and addresses on the subject, together with his great edu cational work, made him a figure unique In the history of the last half century. In England, where he was loved and re vered, Bishop Whipple received many hon ors. He preached the opening sermon in Lambeth Palace at the Lambeth confer ence in London in 1888 and preached . on special occasions in most of the cathedrals of England. He received the degrees of D. D. and LL. D. from the universities of Oxford, Cambridge and Durham. He was Invited by Queen Victoria to a private in terview at Windsor Castle, and was after ward presented by the queen with a por trait of herself and an elegant copy of her Highland Journal. After the Spanish-American war Bfshop Whipple spent some months In Porto Rico In the interest of his church. He was the senior bishop of the Protestant Episcopal Church in America.
