RESTORATiON'HOSr HAVINGJROUBLE Dowie Vigorously Denounces News papers in New York. WAS HISSED SEVERAL TIMES New York, ?Oct. 20.?John Alexan der Dowie aud his "Kostoration Host" are having troubles of their own in "converting" this city. After giving flnal instructions to the host for a houso-to-house canvass, Dowie vehe mently denounced the newspapers and several clergymen. Twelve companies of the Zion Hosts, numbering 70 persons each, are en gaged in the house-to-house canvass of the city. Each company was di vided into bands of 10, every band haviug a captain. Later Mr. Dowie, acconipanled by Mrs. Dowie, his son and Deacon W. P. Kindle, called on Mayor Low at the City Hall, and told the mayor that his people had respect for New York aml admired the mayor for what he had done. He thanked the mayor for po lico protecLion, and, receiving assur ance of the mayor's pieasure, departed with the Zion salute, "Peace be unto thee, brother," to which tho mayor re sponded: "Thank you, sir." '"Dr." Dowie's troubles with the pub lic of "New Gomorrah" worc added to again, when during the mceting 2000 people calmly walked out after calmly listcning to a tirade of the press. The "prophct's" anger knew no bounds, aud he stamped up and down the plat form roviling his departing auditors in billiugsgate that might not be printed. "This Is all caused by Ihe nev%t>pa pers?the lying vipers of the press," said Dowie. "But never mind; I havc a message straight lroin God which I will deliver to them. l'll Lurn them up, thu hounds!" "I am going to spank Dr. Newell Dwight Hillis, that naughty boy," he said. "He has been writin;; lies to the newspapers ahout me. I spanked him in Chicago, and I spanked him so good that it was hard for him to sit down. And l'll do it again. "I want to say that there won't'bo acy healing here at this meeting, or at any tneeting. You have to be cleansed aud saved first before you can be heal ed, you stink pots, you beer pots, you whisky pots!" When Mr. Dowie opened his night meeting in Madison Square Garden he faceu un inimense throug: when he closed it his audience had Lwindled to only :i few hundred persons besides the "hest" he brought with him from the west. He fretted, fumed, threatened, cajolcd and finally resorted to the use of epithets, his hearers meauwhile leaving the meeting, several hundred together, drowning the sound of his volce. He announced tht he would tell how lt was revealed to him that he was "Elijah." and also that he would have something to say to the newspapers and their reporters. His talk, which was interspersed with several hymns, at times when the tramp of those leav ing the hall was more than his volce could overcome, was devoted chiefly to denunciation of tobacco smokers, 11 quor drinkers and newspaper men, all of whom he classed as "dirty dogs" and "dirty birds." Several times the audience hlssed Mr. Dowie. After one such demonstra tion he shouted: "We come here,' and we get your impudence, but I will get your hearts and then I will get your pocketbooks." "There is nothing so joyful as spend ing money for the Lord," he continued. "They say I came to New York for money. I do not deny the soft ini peachment." He said the story that his wife lost a $1500 diamnnd pin was untrue, as she never owned a pin like that, nor had she lost anything. The tales printed about his people being hungry were all lies, he said. He had "licked" the press of Chicago, he shouted, and he would "lick" the press of New York. He would lick these "vultures." Finally he came to the promised story of revelation. He quoted Scrlp ture to show that Elijah was to come a third time. A minister had told him that he was Elijah, but he was loath to believe it. but finally after going over the situation carefully he nmde up his mind that he was truly Elijah. Then at the opening of a building in Zion two years ago he had proclaimed himself Eltjah, well knowing the fearful re sponsibilitie3 of the restoration that he must, as Elijah, lead. ZION GUARDS EJECT MRS. NATION Kansas Saloon Smasher Insisted On Questioning Dowie. New York, Oct. 21.?Dr. Dowie. ar rayed in evening clothes, talked for two hours before a great throng in Madison Square Garden, the burden of i his talk being denunciation of the i clergy and the press. When he began , the huge Garden was crowded, and j the police say 6900 persons who could not gain admittance were turned away. i Tn half an hour, however, the crowd be ! gan to surge out. and then the police j refused to admlt any late comers, say ! Ing they feared a riot It was with some difflculty that any | semblance of order was kept The speaker was repeatedly interrupted [ with hisses and shouts of dlsapproval. I At one point Dowie ordered the police I to arrest two men in different parts of ! the building who had interrupted him. Carrie Nation. who occupled a seat near the front, asked "Elijah" to an swer some questions. He refused and ordered her to sit down. Dowie then j pralsed the splrit in which Mrs. Na : tlon had warred on the saloon, but sald she used wrong methods. Mrs. Natio* again demanded the privlltge of asking questions. At once the Zion guards eurrounded her. and with the help of j several policemen ejtcttd her. At this several hundred persons at j the back of th? Garden made a rush to get out. The entrance was blocked ln a moment. and Dowie shouted that the way had been blocked by the crowd outaide brought there for the purpoae of creating a disturbance, ordered the Zionists to keep thelr places. He then requested the audlenc# to be seated, and after having the side exits opened, he directed the audieuce to rise in sec tions and go out at the sides. The meeting was one of continuous dis order. CALLS DOWIE A MOUNTEBANK Rev. Parkhurst Think* 2ion Servlces Worse Than Circuees. New York, Oct. 21.?The Rev. Dr. ' Charlcs H. Parkhurst has sent the | following open letter to Mr. Dowie: "I do not want to be presuming, but j doubts if it is any more presumptlve in me to come and try to clarlfy you than it is for you to come and try to clarify New York; and I do not : know which of us has taken the heav I ler contract. I attended your servlce at Madison Square Garden and I went determincd to enjoy it if I could, and to be boneflted by it, and to go away and roiute some of the charges that i I had heanl alloged agalnst you. But I it was of no use; your behavior on the I plaiform crushed exery throb of syin pathy I had wiih you. I never heard from a publio speaker such a dis i charge of effervescent wrath and 1 coarse invoctive. 1 went tc hear you preach the gospel and you preached ! Dowie, Zion, 'Stink-pot' I was asham ed of you, and almost ashamed to be in your audience. It was a long way below the standard even of the cir? cuses that I have attended in the same garden. The only consolation 1 j could derive was that it was so abom ? inaole and so far beyond the bounds of the respectable tliat even those in ' your congregation who did not know what Christianity is would have no ldea that it had anything to do with what you were saying. "Of course, the ridiculousness of the | performanoe was only enhanced bythe ! immensity of your pretensions. If you claimed to be only an ordinary man | there might be some hope for you, ; even with what you call the Tabble,' | but the rabble is discriminating and can discriminate as keenly as the | keenest between a prophet and a jug gler, between an Elijah and a mounte bank. I say this in no splrit of anger, but elther your head is twisted or your heart infected, or you have blun dered badly in your method. You can not bully people into Zionism nor blackguard them into the Kingdom of Heaven. I hope you will take this in the kindly spirit in which it is offered and that it will be a biessing to you." Receiver for Big Trust Company. Dover, Del.. Oct. 21. ? Chancellor Nicholson hss granted an appllcatiou for a receiver for the International Bank and Trust Company of America. James H. Hughes, of Delaware, was appointed receiver. Subordinate re ceivers will be appointed in all other states where the corporation has as sets. Efforts will also be made \a have a subordinate receiver named in the republic of Mexico. Herbert Comp ton, a stockholder, made the applica tion for a receiver and William L. Gooding opposed the granting of tha? fcppliction for the company. Decapitated By Live Wire. Scranton, Pa.. Oct. 19.?Melion Bas selego. a r?5-year- old Polish miner, was decapitated by an electric light wire, near his home, in Peckvllle. The storms of last week washed the earth from about a pole and caused It to fall. The wires were lying close to the ground. He was out hunting for a lost cow and eneountered the fallen wires. It is supposed be touch ed one of them, was shocked into in Bensibility, and, falling with his neck across one of the wires, was gradually decapitated.
