T11K 3LAMKGCS CASK AGAIN". Rev. J."VV. Gainer? and Others State Fact?- as They Know Them. To tlie Editor or The Times: Tltere is scarcely a dozen words of truth ill the malicious report of a called meeting which took place at the Salem Baptist Church, Cbaniplam avenue north west, Wed nesday night, Rev. S. G. Lamkins, pastor. In the first place there was not a single charge presented against the pastor during the meeting. Rev. Lamkins has never figurediu any police court cases, as charged, nor was lie arrested three weeks ago or at any other times, as stated by your informant; nor did you get your report rrom the deacons of our church. There has never been a word spoken or charge of any kind formally preferred against the pastor during his four years' administra tion, until Licentiate A. S. Lyman pre sented charges against him a few -weeks ago, which charges -were thoroughly in vestigated by the deacons and found to be malicious and without foundation in fact. They reported their findings to the church at its regular business meeting, which exonerated the pastor by a large majority. 2s"o motion prevailed Wednesday night, declaring the pulpit vacant, or dismissing the pastor. A motion was made to that effect, but another one was made to lay it on the table, which was lost, before the previous question was called. A motion was made to adjourn, -which prevailed. At 11 o'clock p. in. the meeting adjourned. Those vho -were dissatisfied with the pastor held another meeting, which "was entirely out of order, declared the pulpit vacant, and did a number of other things contrary to tiie word of God. The -whole proceedings, so far as the publication is concerned, is an attempt to injure the pastorin his departmental position, as some of the promoters of the scheme have pub licly declared. It is to be regretted that The Times lias been so imposed upon as to use its valuable space for such slanders. Signed: Itev. J. W. Gaines, moderator of meeting; Benjamin Ingalls, chairman dea con board; Deacon Carter Lewis, Deacon William Coleman, Peacon D. D. Lomax, secretary of the board. DIED.

POVERTY'S MANY FRIENDS A Steady Stream in and Out ut the Centrul Union Mission and As- .-.soeiated Charities All "Day Ac tivity of tl:e Police Future Plans to Continue the .Benefactions. One hundred and sixtcenmenand youtltSi three-fifths of them while, and all bene ficiaries of charity, -were housed last night at the Central Union Mission. It would be an injustice to speak ofa majority of these as tramps or vagabonds. Forty-six or them -were fairly well clad. They are wanderers in Washington, ready to go anywhere for work. A hair a dozen of" these -who were spoken to said that they -were simply out of work and were doing the best they could, from town to town , un til they could get employment. They say that it is just as difficult to get -work in any other city as Washington. This 11G -was the best evidence or the weather and its results. Most of them -were given good, warm beds, but there was an over flow, and this overflow made a picture for a painter. fc Mr. McMicluiel, the superintendent, said that he did not turn away anybody, and so it was a Christian kindness to put the excess down in the cellar. It was warm down there; infinitely better than prowling around the streets until the policemen -would be obliged to collar them and repre sent them in the morning as vagrants. They call them vags m the police court for the -want of time to do justice to the English language, and besides, it is more humiliating. "Vags" has been foreshort ened to go -with rags, and jags and dogs and hogs. The mteeii or twenty of the excess -who could not be accommodated on the Euro pean plan were very happy In the cellar hall with the steaming pipes, the thick walls, and especially the consciousness that they were not to answer the police court roll-call today. All of these will be given a chance to work today at the mis sion. The colored unfortunate-, were also evidently honest people, who would rather work than beg on the streets This kind of poverty, or rather this phase of this kind of pauperism, hasits linmor. The fact that thec rellows were well huused made tins vintage of 1897 effervesce in the cellar. They were paradoxically enough quite happy, told each other funny stories, and philosophized about "the pcor people" of Chicago aim New York or the rlozens of places lliey have lately -"visited." The Central Union Mission did a great work yesterday On the usuil basis of calculation, they succeeded in-giving ie liet to more than seven hundred persons. AH of these were known to the agents of the misblon to be worthy cases, and it does not include the 116 who were taken care or last night, so that the benefactions to the creditor the mission yesterday are in the neighborhood of nine hundred per sons. The pound party was quite a succe--s, and besides the donations in kind there were .many contributions of money. The following is the list of the latter: Mrs. C E. B.. $.-; Mrs. Roff, 62; H. W. J..

WON QXV. AND LOST ONE. SaeugcrhuiHl mid Carroll Institute Bowlers A train Divide DIouorH. To win a rail set or tenpln gumes on the Saengqrbund alleys in the major league series is the highest ambition in thut line of the Snengerbund and Carroll Institute bowling teams. Last night these teams met again on the Saengers' alleys, but the best they could do was to split even, and this is the history ot nearly all their meetings, whether upon these or upon other alleys. The game.slast evening were more evenly contested than those ot former bets and the murgins were small. In the first game the Saengerbund was 58 pins in the lead in the firth box and not withstanding this they lost the game by 15 pins. The second game was won by the Saengers by 11 pins. Loth teams played strong and steady games and team play marked the work throughout the evening's contefet. Brugger led the evening with 1S1 as best single game and alio led with 1(59 1-2 as the highest average for the tct. Tills splen did lowler now leads the league for highest average to date.

The express car was detached from the train by the robbers and-the- door blown open, with dy namite. Two Small safes in the car were bldwh' opeh"and"lo6ted. The express car then look firp. The conductor and trainmen worked hard to save the car after the rob- bershadgone.butthe curandcoutents were destroyed. The train was on time at Shady Point, where Engineer Morris saw a man at the siile of the track waving a flag. He slowed up for the signal, and as lie came toa'fitop a man armed, with two revclvers.came.over the back of the tender and covered him. At the same time another armed man, the one wlio had flagged.thc train, appeared at tlie bide of the cab, and pointing a revolver, ordered the engineer not to attempt to move the train, butty come down nfonqc undg;o, with them to the express car. The fireman had gotten down on the other side. Two of the robbers and the engineer then went to the express car, where the outlaws ordered theexiiressmessenger to open the door. This he refused to do. The robbers thenuncoupled the express crir, returned to the engine and bucked the train, leaving the express car separated. The expiess mes sengerseir.edthoopportunity to leave hiscar. After breaking the train in two the robbers returned to the expiess par, and witli heavy charges of dynamite blew the door open.

F Street Echoes Wall street and the speculating public seem to have settled down to the con viction that nothing will break tiie terri ble dullness of the stock marketuutilMarch 4.shall have given us a new administration andanewtryatruniiingthings. Yesterday was a repetition of the day before and or a gieatinany days before that a dayorsmall business", sluggishness, weakness, and failingpriccs. There wasalmostnofeature, there are no rumors worth mentioning, and although nearly every body is optimistic or the f uture.they have got tired of predict ing what has already not come when Jt was promised several times. Business yesterday was entirely con fined to the professionals. Such a market does not in any way reflect the conditions that are supposed to influence the rise and fall of the piicu of securities. Good crop reports, increased railroad nornings cut no legitimate figure in a professional market They are sometimes used inordinately to fui thcr bull or bear raids, as the most trivial matters or news and the most gauzy of rumors are, but a large part the traders' market movcslike the wind where Itlisteth Transactions amounted to 80,100 shares. Tlie most active stocks were Sugar and Northern Pacific Preferred. Sugar was sold down by Bell & Co., and N.P. P'fd. was advanred by Uopkins Brothers. Dow, Jones & Co. sent out the follow ing, from Washington, on Sugar, yester day: s "Sugar people now watching the Ways and Means Committee are considerably ex ercised over a rumor in circulation to the effect that tlie committee lias decided on a specific duty ou sugar instead of the ad valorem, It is claimed by the repre sentatives of sugar rclinerics that unless a higher differential duty is allowed than the existing one, rentiers cannot maintain themselves if a change is made from the ad valoiem to a specific duty. A Sena tor who has had much to do in the form ing of thepreent tariff law, and especially t hesugarsehedule,says that the Senatewill insist on a specific duty on sugar." Omaha weakened yesterday despite the dividend. If you are expecting a reason for the decline it is supposed that traders were not satisfied with tlie size of the dividend, but atfirst thought it was to be semi-annual. The officers of the company had been explicit, however, in stating that wliatever dividend was declared would be annual. The gioss business of the General Elec trk Company fortlie past ear is estimated to have been 311,000,000, about 2,000, 000 less than that of 1895. This is hardly a j;ood bear statement. General Electric is one of the companies of the present and the future. It is earning money and win earn more. All itspiospects are rosy. Its immediate course is to be upward. It is a god thing to buy on margin or for invest ment. If you are holding G. E. now itis a oad tiling to cling to and to increase your holdings in on all declines. Town Topics' financial bureau continues to advise buying and holding Chicago Gas, General Electric, B. Q., Manhattan, and St. Paul. There was some small buying yesterday, traceable to the appointment of Lyman J. Gage 'as Mr. McKinlcy's Secretary of the Treasury. He is considered a sound man a good man to take a partln Mr. McKinlcy's "Prosperity" performance. ThcU. P. plan is regarded as absolutely sure of accomplishment. Everybody that it is necessary to please, including Mr. Huntington himself (who no one must for a moment believe is out of tlie new U. P. scheme), is to be satisfied, and it is thought that foreclosure will be completed within sixty days. The failure of the stock to rally can only be attributed to the general deadness of the market. It will be one of the first to show an upward tendency. Lackawanna's statement for the year ending December 31, 183G, published yes terday, was somewhat disappointing and traders sold the stock down,, all the coal stocks following in the decline. Bradstrect's will say today: The most favorable feature of the busi ness week is the sudden and sharp fall ing off in the total number of business fail ures in tlie United States, the aggregate being 32G as compared with 429 last week, a decrease of 103. When compared with the corresponding week of 189G , this week's falling off is 67. Bank clearings at cities throughout the United States shows a sharp falling off from last week, about S per cent, but an increase ot 7 per cent compared with the corresponding total one year ago. Dun & Company will say today in their weekly review ot trade: January has been a month ot disappoint ment, but of real gain. .Nearly everybody had promised himself a land ot milk and lioney after New "Year's, and the slow progress looks like standing still to men in such a state of jnind. Moreover there arc multitudes throughout the country who have been taking largeventures Jn advance of or opart from their regular business, because they expected a rise in prices. But prices fail as yet to bring them profit. Merchandise exports from New York in January have been about 4 per cent larger than last year, and im ports 15 per cent smaller than last year, when the excess ot exports was over $18,000,000, while cotton exports from other ports have also been larger. The month has not diminished, but has in creased the current balance due this country. vv nstunytcn stocu Jixcnamje. Sales regular call 12 o'clock in. "West End National Bank, 2 at 107.
