S BMCAN CHURCH'S DUTY Plea in Presbyterian As sembly forthe Freedman SAID TO BE A FIXTURE It That Case There Is Nothing to do but Provide for His Education. The Matter of Arbitration Be tween Capital and Labor. Los Angeles. May 25. The repots of the standing committee on free-tUnen, the special committee on education, ycung people's societies and Presbyteri an building-and the breaking of ground for additional buildings at Occidental college, made up the programme of the Presbyterian general assembly today. The discussion of the reports submitted by the special committees brought a wider range of debate than any Ques tions thus far submitted to the general assembly. The freedmen's committee report gave opportunity for all the col ored commissioners to be heard and there were some ringing speeches from these representatives of the south. prospects of a debate in the assem bly this morning brought out a large attendance in the galleries of Emmanu el church. The commissioners were all in attendance and lost no time In com ing to the business before them. The report of the freedmen's committee was read by Dr. C. P. Cheesman, chair man. Dr. Cheesman, In commenting upen the report, said: "There has come before this assembly this year a problem demanding our in ter sts and requiring our best thought, the present question of the freed men. Who sold the black man into slavery, but the whites? This is history and as a lesult we have moral responsibilities to meet. This race is here to atuy. They have a rignt to stay. We gave them their freedom. Wh must give them education. "Now I want to say that w? must re solve to put $300,000 to this end. We. ought to have a million, but what is the use of resolving if ye dD not act? It is our duty.' Something is wrong when the richest churches in the land give a mere pittance to this work when they give large sums to other objects." Dr. E. P. Cowan, secretaiy of the board cf fre-edmen, said In brief: "There are in this land of ours more than nine million' freedmen. A noted Englishman wrote a book some time sgo in which he demonstrated to his cwn satisfaction that the negro in America was bound to disappear. On the contrary the negroes have increas ed from 18 to 23 per cent. They are thus here to stay and they will stay in the states where they were born. They wiil not emigrate largely and they have not only doubled in numbers in the last forty years but they have cuadrupled in influence."' v Half a dozen cr more of the colored commissioners were given five minutes each in which to urge the church to I'.nd its aid in the education of the cole-red people of the South, arguing that, education was the only solution of the race problem that now confronts this government. The report of the committee was finally adopted. Rev. C. Banks Nelson of Rochester, N. Y., introduced a resolution which was referred to the committee on bills and overtures, having for its object the appointment of a committee of nine commissioners to act as a board of ar bitration in disputes between labor and capital. The report on the Presbyteriaji build ing in New York, which makes a strong plea for funds to lift the mortgager of some $200,000 within the next year was .'j'opted. i- A resolution was adopted expressing the assembly's "profound regret that the authorities and contractors of the Sc. Iuis exposition have allowed work if' 1k done on Sundays" and respectful ly protested against, its continuance. A resolution by Mr. Yerrance of New York, relating to Sunday traveling of I lie c'.'tnmissioners to and from recent genc-ial assemblies caused a ilurry of debate among the commissioners, some cif whom had been obliged to travel on Sunday and took the resolution P'.iin-v.-hat as a personal affront. Those who acknowledged that" they had tr.p'elled mi Sunday laid the blame on the rail toad companies. Rev. W. H. Roberts, stated clerk, said that railroads east of the Mississippi river had tarried out their itinerary contract. The l evolu tion was finally adopted.

C, May 25. Until he is satisfied with conditions at Brunei ton, Washington, in the vicinity of the navy yard. Acting Secretary Darling will direct that no more shins ne orci- ered there for repair or docking. Tele- graphic instructions have been rent tothCI(, ls RUftiCient evidence to warrant the Pacific sciuadron. which was about a finding of an abandonment of such to proceed to Bremerton for repairs, to remain at San Francisco until lurmer orders, and Mr. Darling has wired Cap tain Bieeker. .the acting commandant at Bremerton, regarding the truth of newspaper reports that the Bremcitoa own council had declined to approve the revoking of the licenses of the sal oons and gambling houses on Front street and that these places are still in operation. If these reiorU be true. Acting Sec retaiy .Darling fays, the department ha been misled. Some time ago, be cause of the evil inllur-nces which in vestigation fhowed existed directly outside the Bremerton yard, an crder was issued that no more ships be sent there until this condition was remedi?d. Although powerful political influence was brought to bear in the ue: ".itmtnl tc revoke this crder Acting S--c votary Dailin.T stood his ground, and not until the Bremerton authorities oflicia'iy in formed him that the licenfes ror all sa loons and gambling hou.-es on Front street had been revoked and these places closed did he consent that the gunboat Ranger go there for docking. That vessel has just arrived at Brem ei ton. Mr! Darling desires that whenever practicable the yard at Bremerton shall be kept busy, but he is determin ed that American sailors shall not be subjected to evil influences such as have existed just outside the gates of the Bremerton navy yard. If it be found that the town council has re fused to revoke the licenses for saloons, etc., the department will discontinue all work at Bremerton until assured that Front street has been cleaned up to its satisfaction, regardless of any and all political pressure. hi' Phoenix Cycle Co, 21 West Adams.

MATER USERS WON Judgment for Plaintiff in the Van Fossen Case He Has a Valid Eight to Water Though Not a Water Eight Owner QLuesticn of Priority Appropri ation Not Considered. Judge Kent yesterday rendered judg ment for the plaintiff in the case of H. (Ij Van Fo.w.-n against the Salt River Valley Canal company, establishing the right of the plaintiff though not the owner of a water right to receive water iicm the company which hud denied him. The dec ision l: an important one. one of who?e effec ts will no doubt bo j to assist the Water Users association , in procuring subscriptions to reservoir j rights, inasmuch as it defines the status of water users who are non- holders of water rights. The plaintiff was one of many farm ers similarly situated. There were in fact ether suits of the same kind brought but this is the only one that went to trial the 'daintiffs in the others contributing to the payment of the ex penses of thi3 litigation. The predecessors in interest of the plaintiff had originally received water frcm the SaU, river through tlih old Griffin ditch. Conditions came about which made that means of procuring water wasteful and after that the wat er for the land now owned by the plaintiff was taken through the Salt River valley canal. Neither the plain tiff nor his predecessor in interest own ed a water right in the canal but they obtained water by leasing rights from the canal company or other water right holders until the company under it3 construction of the Sloan decision in the Slosser case established a rule mat water count Le delivered only t actual owners cf water rights, another rcaron being that at that time there w.-is r.o n-.'jre water available than the holders of water rights required. It was th -n that the era of- gate breaking was usheied in which Judge Kent soon suppressed in a manner which parti was quite sntU-fac tory . to both This suit was begun by E. W. Lewis in October of last c-ar, acting for the Maricopa County Farmers' association Arter the filing of the suit an ordr was made by which the plaintiff should .se-cure waie- rrom the company upon depositing with the clerk of the court a sum sufficient to pay for it. The question of pnority of appropria tion was net vigorously put forward by thc plaintiff, it being his contention that his right to th? use of water had been recognized ,by the defendant in assuming to serve him through sever al years. It was contended on the oth er side that he had abandoned what ever right he may have had by ceas ing to take water through the Griffin dttch and allowing that water way to till up. On account of the Importance of the case it was advanced on the docket and was tried last November. The tak ing of evidence an the'arguing of law points occupied five days. The argu ments were made last March and Judge Kent has had the case under consideration ev?r since. The judg ment of tha court is printed in full be low : "I think the evidence In this case is sufficient; to establish the appropriation cf water by the predecessors in Inter- ct of the paintiff as aiieged in the cxmplalnt: and I do not think that an appropriation, or that the acts of the plaintiff and his predecessors estop him from asserting his claim. "The right 4s .therefore a valid, sub sisting right, and the plaintiff is -entitled to water sufficient for the culti vation of his land. ' "The question of the priority of his appropriation, relative to that of other appropriations of water, is not in issue in this case, and is not determined. "The evidence sufficiently establishes the- content i on ;f the plarr.tin", that the defendant canal company has been supplying water for irrigation to per son?; who are not stoc kholders or water right owners in the canal. The fo-mer means of delivery of the water having been discontinued through no fault of I the piair.tift, and there being no other fxirting means of carrying the water from the riv?r to the lands of the plain tiff except through the canal of th3 defendant company, the interests of the community and the economical dis tribution and use of the water in the liver require the carrying of plaintiff's water through the canal of the defend ant company and its delivery by such company to the land of the plaintiff, under such reasonable rules and regu lations as it may provide. "The plaintiff having no contractual relations with the defendant should pay to the defendant for the carriage of his water such sum as the defendant shall require; provided, such charge is not in excess of what Is. proper and reasonable for the service rendered. "Until the relative priority of rights of the plaintiff and others under the canal shall have been determined, the defendant company shall not be requir ed to deliver ta the plaintiff more wat er for the cultivation of his land than It delivers to others, for the cultiva tion of the same amount of land as that owned by the plaintiff." "Judgment will therefore be entered for the plaintiff In accordance with the views expressed." There was very little other business in court. The case of C. Hirst against J.1. C. Wasson was continued until May 26. The suit of Leon Bou vier against Jack Gibon and others y.as continued for the term. In the in junction suit of D. P. Jones- and others against W. K. James and others to prevent the issuance to the . defendant cf a tax deed the bond was fixed at $;00. In the case of L. E. Payson against George E. Godfrey, foreclosure was ordered and L. B. Christy was ap- pointed receiver under a bond of $".00. ELEPHANT'S MOOD CHANGED. Hitherto Docile, It Suddenly Turned Upon Its Keeper. Cheyenne, Wyo., May 25.

What Do the Children Drink? There are limes when mother or fath er feeds the youngsters something that they know children should not have. Perhaps it is some rich dessert but more often it is tea or coffee. Some compromise by putting in so much hot water that there is not much tea or coffee left but even that little is pretty certain to do harm. It leads to bigger doses. Then come the coffee ills. It is better to have some delicious, hot, food drink' that you can take your self and feed to your children conscious that it will help and strengthen and never hurt them. A lady of Oneida, N. Y., says: "I used coffee many years in spite of the conviction that it injured my nervous system and produced my nervous headaches. While visiting a friend I was served with Postum but it was not well made, still I determined to get a package and try it myself and after following directions carefiilly the. result was all that could be desired; a delicious, finely flavored, richly col ored beverage. Since I quit coffee Postum has worked wonders for me. "My husband, who always suffered from kidney trouble when drinking coffee quit the coffee and took up Pos tum with me and since drinking Pos tum he has felt stronger and better with no indication of kidney trouble. "You may be sure I find It a great comfort to have a warm drink at meals that I can give my children with a clear conscience that it will help them and not hurt them as coffee or tea would."

Soon er or later it wfs bounu to arise, and Inasmuch as it has now arisen of course those who favor my administra tion and my nomination v.ul endorse them and those who do not wi'l op pose. v "The president also taid that he was deeply touched by the action .f Presi dent McKinley's home county, in which Canton is situated, in instructing so heartily in his favor.

Miller, assistant attorney In the efflce of the assistant attorney general for the postoffice de partment for accepting a bribe !n con nection with the case of John J. Ryan & Company, charged with fraudulent use of the mails. Miller was taken to the city hall tonight and placed under arrest by a deputy marshal. He waived -examination and was released on tl.500 bonds for his appearance in court at Circinnati next autumn. The warrant, it was learned late tonight, charges conspiracy instead oi bribery, as first reported. . v' A warrant on the same charge has bee-n issued for the arrest cf Joseph M. Johns, a lawyer cf Rockville, Park 4'ounty.t. Indiana.. Miller -ame here from Terre Haute, Indiana; about two years ago. He was appointed by for mer Assistant Attorney General James N. Tyner. The charge against Miller has been under investigation for three months. The Ryan , c ompany was a turf investment concern which operat ed at St. Louis and Covington, Ky. Its methods and working operations are said 'to be. similar to those of the Ar nold company, which has figured con spicuously In the postoffice investiga tion. Postoffice Inspector in Charge W. F. Vickery, at Cincinnati, and Postoffice Inspector R. M.' Fulton, at St. Louis, recently were given full charge of the case?. Complaint was made by Inspec tor Fulton before a United States com missioner in Cincinnati on Saturday and then a -warrant was issued for Miller and Johns. Inspector Fultcn im mediately came to Washington, and another inspector went west from Cin cinnati to make the other arrest.

He was allowed to draw his salary and then return to the private office of the assistant at torney general, where the Inspectors were in waiting. The Ryan company was the benefi ciary under a decision ef the assistant attorney general of the postoffice de partment, made several months ago, subsequent to the decision in the Ar nold case, and couched in practically the same terms as that decision. These decisions declared the concerns named to be free to use the mails. The Arnold decision, it is stated, was signed by As sistant Attorney General Tyner. The Ryan decision was signed by George A. Christiancy, the law clerk of the department, who was then acting as assistant attorney general on ac count of Tyner's protracted illness. Mr. Christiancy was at the postoffice de partment on a summons from the de partment and was closely examined le garding the case. It is statad that the amount offered Miller as a bribe aggre gated several thousand dollars, and was In the form of a cash payment fob lowtd by a check. Thi3 payment is al leged to have taken place in Cincinnati, so the case will be tried there, probably in the October term of court. Mr. Mil ler probably will g've bail for bis ap peSranee at that time, the panaity tor the offense charged 13 a fine of not more than three times the bribe asked cr accepted and imprisonment of not more than three yer.ts.
