Sessions Yesterday Afternoon.
The sessions of the convention yesterday
afternoon were given over entirely to gen
eral conferences on subjects of interest to
the whole brotherhood, and to sectional
conferences on questions affecting certain
phases of the work among particular classes
ot men. Bishop H. H. Montgomery. s<c
retary of the Society for the Propagation
of the Gospel In England, was the first
speaker, and he extended a hearty invita
tion to all delegates to attend the Pan-An
glican congress in London. June l*V-24. 1IHW.
Bishop Montgomery said that every
diocese of the Anglican communion may
send six delegates to the international con
ference to be held in England next year,
and that these delegates will be at no ex
ptnse whatever. Conferences have already
been held in the different provinces, said ^
Bishop Montgomery, and arrangements
have been made for entertaining the dele
gates who may come. As many as wish to
attend this international conference may
come, and thos;? who are not accredited
delegates will be at thee expense of only
one-half guinea while at Oxford.
Addresses on Various Topics.
"Good Work for Your Chapter" was the
general subject before the meeting in the
afternoon, and addresses on various phases
of the topic were made by A. G. Alexander,
president of the Brotherhood of St. Andrew
in Canada, who discussed "Bible Classes;"
F. O Zeslnger of St. Matthew's Ciiapter,
Philadelphia, who talked about "Confirma
tion Campaigns;" G. Frank Shelby. New
York district secretary, who spoke on
"Men's Communion;" F. W. Thomas, gen- ;
eral secretary for Canada, on "Visiting;" >
John A. Birmingham. Canadian western |
secretary, on "Hotels and Hospitals. ' and j
Rev. J. J. D. Hall, prison chaplain, Ensley,
Ala . on "Public Institutions."
General Secretary Thomas for Canada
declared that there should be no such word
as "tact" when brotherhood members were
looking for new members. They should
put the truths of the Bible bluntly and
forcibly to the stranger, he declared, and
leave the rest for prayer. "God and Man
a Majority" was a motto, he said, that
should be used by every delegate and by
every brotherhood man.
Value of Bible Class Work.
In discussing the value of Bible class
work Mr, Alexander declared that less than
50 per cent of the chapters hsve taken up
th'at sort of service, which he characterized
as the most important that the brotherhood
can do. He said Bible classes should be
encouraged, because they are the most
direct method of reaching souls, and they
provide a maximum amount of work for
all. give workers a greater opportunity of
coming into close contact with all men. and
they prove an admirable recruiting ground.
He also made mention of the fact that the
brotherhood Itself was founded in a Bible
class. He showed that the Bible classes in
Canada had made great progress.

sumed the remainder of the afternoon, the

Indictments in Capitol Prosecutions
Ready for Jury Konday.
HARRISBl'RG. Pa., September 2H.?The
indictments in the capitol prosecutions are
reaiiy to submit to the Dauphin county
grand Jury on Monday morning. The last
of them were prepared today by District
.-.itorney Weiss. Only a few witnesses will
be called to sustain the charges of con
spiracy to cheat and defraud the state and
obtain money under false pretenses. Law
yers for the prosecution are confident that
true bills will be returned against the four
teen defendants on every one of the thirty
two counts.
Probably the only witnesses who will be
called before the grand Jury to make out a
prima facie case against the defendants
are the experts employed by the investiga
tion commission. These experts examined
the contracts and accounts of the board of
grounds and buildings and weighed and
tested all the furnishings. They have been
subpoenaed anil will be here on Monday to
testify if the district attorney should de- I

Passing of Frederick, Grand
Duke of Baden.
Celebrated His Golden Wedding About
a Year Ago.
For Fifty Years Intimately Connected
With Efforts to Unite German
States of Empire.
8|K*oiaI Cal>l<*gram to TTip Star.
MA IX AIT. September 2S.?Frederick I,
Grand Duko of Baden, who had been se
riously ill with an internal inflammation for
several days, died today. He was over
eighty-one years of age. He married in
lSjO Grand Duchesse Louise, daughter of
William I. Emperor of Germany, and they
celebrated tiheir golden wedding last Sep
tember. The grand duke will be succeeded
by his son Frederick, who was born in 1858.
He is a general in the Prussian army.
Throughout the night the cabinet minis
ters and the court officials and chaplains
had waited in an apartment adjoining t..e
death chamber for the end to come. At the
grand duke's bedside" when he expired were
tile grand ducthess. Princess Louise of Prus
sia; the hereditary Grand Duke Frederick of
Baden, Prince Max or Baden, brother of
the grand duke, the crown princess of
Sweden and ohe.-s.
His Public Life.
The public life of the deceased grand duke
was for fifty years intimately connected
with the efforts to unite the German states
of the empire. He was born at Carlsruhe
September it, 1S2K. and on his accession to
the throne, in 18TW. became Prince Bis
marck's most able and energetic coadjutor
outside of Prussia in the formation of the
confederation. His diplomacy resulted in
bringing several of the minor German sov
ereigns to his views?that a union of the
German states meant increased strength
for all.
When at length they all agreed on this
subject it became the grand duke's duty
at the dinner at Versailles, when King Wil
liam of Prussia was proclaimed German
emperor, to deliver a speech, during which
he made the first public recognition of
Emperor William's headship of the German
p?ople, many of the reigning German
princes being present.
A difficulty arose before the banquet, as
Emperor William insisted that the grand
duke should refer to him as Emperor of
Germany, contrary to the terms of the
agreement which, on Bismarck's proposi
tion. tn order to meet the objections of the
Kings of Saxony and Bavaria, explicitly
named him "German emperor."
Act of the Grand Duke.
The grand duke was perplexed and con
ferred both with Emperor William and the
chancellor. Xeither would concede the
point, and the matter therefore was left
to the tact of the grand duke. The guests,
who were all aware of the difficulty which
had arisen, awaited with the keenest inter
est the announcement of the Grand Duke
of Baden.
The latter rose and solved the problem
by referring to his imperial majesty mere
ly as "Emperor William," whereupon the
whole assemblage gave six rounds of
The late grand duke appears from the
Hohenlohe memoirs to have sympathized with
Bismarck at the time of the latter's differ
i nces with the present German emperor
and his consequent retirement. This atti
tude of the grand duke separated him from
the joung emperor, and he was regarded,
until recent years, as a constant and severe
critic of the imperial policy.
The Transvaal Incident.
At the time young Emperor William sent
his famous dispatch to the late President
Kruger of the Transvaal, the grand duke
and King George of Saxony are reported
to have reminded the emperor that any
imptrial action which might lead to war
must be taken, under the constitution, in
agicement with the governments of the
f>.d -rated stales.
The emperor and the grand duke, however,
were drawn closer together after that inci
dent. and the emperor, during the grand
duke's last illness, showed constant solici
tude regarding his condition.
The late Grand Duke Frederick married

He Would Challenge With a Ninety

signed?Fife Is Shy.
LONDON September 20.?Arter further
consideration of the matter, the officers of
the Royal Irish Yacht Club have decided.
Instead of sending a reply to the New York
Yacht Club today, to call a meeting of the
Irish club for October 2, at which the
answer of the American club to Sir Thomas
Lipton's recent challenge for the America s
cup and what further action, if any. Is
necessary will be fully considered.
Sir Thomas expects to be present and
will explain what he is anxious to do in
order to bring about another series of races
for the cup, namely, build a ninety-footer
under the new American rule, lie is so de
sirous of arranging for another contest that
he said to the correspondent of the Asso
ciated Press today that he really believed
that after all he would challenge under
the old rule, if he could get a designer of
note to plan the boat for him. He was
afraid, however, that It was imp059?ble to
get a man whose boat would have any
chance of winning to do the work. a3 all
those he had spoken to took the same view .
of the matter as William Fife, who says it
19 useless to attempt to recapture the cup
with a freak boat, which would have t-5
be sailed across the Atlantic, and who. un
der no circumstances, will undertake to
design such a yacht.

While driving across the tracks of the
Baltimore and Ohio raliroad at 1st and N
streets northeast in a coal wagon shortly
before l> o'clock this morning. Frank R.
Fortune, colored, a driver for W. W.
Griffith, was struck by southbound engine
No. 1135 and Instantly ki.led. His right
leg was severed and his skull crushed.
Fortune had a short time before reported
at the coal yard of his employer for duty,
and. It Is stated, was preparing to All the
wagon with < oal for delivery. He started
with the vehicle across the track, and just
as the heavy draft horses were In the cen
ter of the rails the big engine came through
the cut, striking the vehicle and horses
According to wi' esses Fortune sat as if
dazed and did not seem to notice the ap
proach of the engine. As It came in contact
with the wagon Fortune was thrown at
least twenty feet, falling with one leg
across the track. This was severed as the
engine continued on its way before being
brought to a standstill about one square
farther down the track. Aid was given to
Fortune at once, but it was found tliat life
was extinct. Deputy Coroner Glazebrook
was notified and the body was taken to the
One of the large draft horses attached to
the wagon which Fortune was driving had
a leg broken and was killed shortly after
the accident. The other Is badly cut, it is
stated, and will probably have to be killed
within a short time.
Immediately after the accident police offi
cers from the second and ninth precinct
stations were hurried to the scene, but
after an investigation no arrests were
made. The east side of the track is in the
ninth precinct, while the west side of the
rails is under the surveillance of the sec
ond precinct officers. The second precinct
men took charge of the case.
According to the story of several wit
nesses, the police say, Gateman Matthews
lowered the gate at the crossing several
moments before the arrival of the train.
The wagon of Fortune, It is stated, came
up, with the driver apparently sleeping,
though he was sitting in an upright posi
tion. The horses halted before the gate,
and after standing for a moment turned
slightly, and. after evading the end of the
gate started across the track. They had
gone half way across tiie track, it is stated,
before Matthews could warn the driver of
his impending danger.
Fortune resided at 627 Rhode Island ave
nue northwest. His wife and a daughter
by a former marriage survive him.

Champion Wrestler of Japan
Received Today.
Made of Solid Gold and Jeweled to
the President.
Mr. Koosevelt Leaves at 7:40 Tomor
row Night, and Will Be Gone
About Four Weeks.
President Roosevelt was engaged so long
today with Secretary Metcalf. Admiral
Cowles and Admiral Bi-ownson discussing
the coaling of the big American fleet that
is to go to the Pacific coast this winter that
he was delayed a long time in receiving the
celebrated strong man and wrestler of
Japan. Taniemon Hitachiyama. Secretary
Metcalf and Admirals Cowles and Brown
son were with the President several hours,
while Hitachiyama, accompanied by Dr.
Joklchi Takamine, waited to be received.
Hitachiyama was attired in the champion
ship silk robes of Japan, and looked to be
as great a man in a muscular way as he
has been pictured. Ambassador Aoki ar
ranged for the visit of the strong man,
who is in this country for the purpose of
learning somethfng of American athletics.
It has not yet been decided whether he will
meet any of the American wrestlers or
boxers, but it is probable that he will do
so, although the styles of wrestling in the
two countries are entirely different. 1 he
Japanese wrestle standing up, and tlie man
who is forced to touch the floor with his
hands or knees loses the fall. In this coun
try both shoulders of a wrestler must be
forced to the mat .before a victory is se
tUWhen Hitachiyama left Japen to come to
this country his one ambition was to have
an audience with President Koosevelt. Be
cause of his achievements as a wrestler h.s
native town of Mlto some years ago pre
sented him a solid gold Jeweled sword such
as used by the famous warriors of Japan
in the days of old. Hitachiyama asked Per
mission of his townsmen to present this
sword to President Rooseve.t, and permis
sion was readily gtven. The wrest er had
the sword with him when he called upon
the President, and made a formal pres
entation of it. The President said that in
1 view of the fact that the sword represented
the good wishes of Japanese citizens he
would accept it. He praised the Japanese
as the greatest swordsmen In the worlu.
Upon the return of the President from his
western and southern trip he will receive
the Japanese champion and some of nis
suite of wrestlers, and will witness an ex
hibition of the Sumo style of wrestling, as
it is called In Japan. The Japanese am
bassador will also be present.
Hltachayama belongs to the o d Samurai,
or warrior, class of Japan, and began his
career as a wrestler when he was seven
teen years old. He is now thirty-four years
An Interesting Coincidence.
It was regarded as an interest ng coinci
dence that Hitachayama and the other
Japanese should be at the White House at
a time when the President was discussing
with his Secretary of the Navy the trip of
the great American battleships to the Pa
cific coast, which go largely as a "tip" to
Japan that this country is prepared for any
aggressive tactics that country ma> s^e
lit to engage in as a result of differences
between the two nations.

Weighing Mail Matter.
After a conference with President Roose
velt today. Postmaster General Meyer an
nounced that the Attorney General had
completed an opinion which would be pro
mulgated today or Monday sustaining the
Meyer modification of the Cortelyou mall
weighing order, which will save the gov
ernment several million dollars a year In
railway mail pay.
Mr. Meyer said that the Cortelyou order
inadvertently worked an undue hardship
on certain railroads which carried mail
seven days a week, as it based the pay of
all roads on a six-day-a-week basis. The
Meyer modification makes Sunday a "work
ing day" in all cases where the mails are
carried and weighed on that day. The
opinion also decided that the Postmaster
General, In making the new regulation, has
not Infringed on the jurisdiction of Con
His Father Advised That He Was*
Killed by Railroad Train.
Thomas Malonry, living at 1624 flth street

told, was killed by a railroad train, but
no particulars of the accident have been
received. Maloney left here with the inten
tion of going to Pittsburg to work at his
trade, but after remaining there about two
weeks he started for California. The father
was notified of the fatal accident by a dis
patch from B. L. Whiter, superintendent of
the Pennsylvania railroad at Pittsburg,
asking what disposition should be made of
the remains.
Arrangements were made for the ship
ment of the body to this city for Inter
ment. The deceased went to Chattanooga,
Tenn., when he was a boy and learned the
machinists' trade, returning home only a
few days ago.
