Numerous Committees Submit Their 'fteports. Money Needed for Missionary Work at Home aud Abroad. The Publication Board Sating- Money by Following the Fighting Klder't Advice. Associated Press DisDatches. Detroit, May 26. —At the morning session of the Presbyterian general as sembly, tbe salary of the secretary of correspondence was fixed at $1500 a year. The standing committee on board of home missions reported through Dr. i> ..........i n f \ n....... ir... *1....... i.* .v. churches need a great missionary awak ening. The speaker gave a glance at the northwest. New England and other divisions, especially emphasizing the needs of foreign population. The report shows that the total re ceipts for the year were over $958,000; 135 churches were built during the year at a cost of $425,000, and church debts were paid to the amount of $144,000. Tbe membership in churches increased until there is a total of 156,000. The total in Sunday schools is 178,000. The year closed with a debt of $98,000, which was caused by a great falling off in lega cies. Great progress in tbe work of evangelization is reported from all over tbe country, and the need of more workers is evident, es pecially in the newly settled portions of the west. In the new mining and stock raising state of Montana and Idaho there are great inducements for good workers, and in the swiftly-growing towns of Washington there is impera tive need for more men. In Utah, Wyoming and Colorado there has been good progress. In New Mexico there is an opportunity to reap large harvests. In all but four southern states—South Carolina, Georgia, Mississippi and Louisiana—the board has missionaries. Considerable progress has been made among the Mexicans, Indians and Mor mons. Recommendations were made in con nection with the overture asking that each presbytery be invited to send dele gates to the fall meeting of the mission ary conference, and that such delegates shall constitute a special committee on home mission within the bounds of each presbytery; also urging that the board push Sabbath school work among for eign population. The moderator annonnced the instan taneous death of Prof. Van Dyke, of Brooklyn, who had just resigned his pastorate to take the chair of systematic theology in the Union Theological sem inary. A telegram of condolence to his widow was voted. Dr. McMillan, the new secretary of the board of home missions, spoke at some length of the work of the board in the west. He gave a vivid picture of the difficulties of getting a hearing for the gospel in some of the new towns during their booming period, when Sun day is far the most busy day in the week. In the west, now-a-days there is almost nothing of the old time rivalry between denominations. He said the Indian is very accessible to the gospel, and the work" among them is very hope ful. "Had we spent ten per cent what it cost to kill them, in evangelizing them, there would have been no ghost dances." He told of the great progress made in New Mexico among the Span ish-Americans, and in Utah. He con cluded by saying this should not be let go by default for lack of money. Elder Van Rensselaer said in regard to the recommendation to raise one mil lion dollars: "What is the use of pledg ing ourselves to raise this money if we don't do it. It is a mockery unless we .can reach the non-contributing churches. Let us be in dead earnest. The min isters read the notice in a tremendous voice, but don't preach and inform the people about it." Rev. Thomas Boyd of Oregon told how they raised money there. He said 152 home mission churches there have paid their share of the great debt. James Lewis, D.D., of Illinois, spoke of the aspects of the work in the central part of the country. He thought the amount voted not an absolute pledge, but a mark to be arrived at. The recommendations of the report were then taken up seriatim. Rev. Adolphus Krebs of St. Louis urged a better provision for the two German seminaries. The Germans were tired of resolutions not acted upon. At the afternoon session, Col. Elliott F. Shepherd, of New York, read the re port of tbe committee on the observance of the Sabbath. The standing committee of the board of aid to colleges, responded through Rev. Dr. Hays, of California. It aids three colleges"and five academies organ ized before 1888, the year when the board was established, as well as twelve colleges and sixteen academies founded since. The aided institutions have $1,173,278 worth of net property. The amount received during the year was $101,000. The special committee on tho board of publication, through Judge Hand of Scran ton, Pa., stated reasons for approv ing the report made earlier in the session. Judge Hand addressed the assembly at great length on the subject ■of the management of the board, defend ing it warmly. H. E. Simmons, "the fighting elder," is chairman of the special committee that was appointed in '89 by the assem bly, in response to demands made by -various bodies and the synod of Ohio in particular, occasioned by statements as to high prices paid by the board of pub lication for work and material. In Sim • mons's address he disavowed all inten tion to insinuate or charge crookedness ' or dishonesty against the board, its business committee or any of its em ployees. His report was directed against their trying to manage a business in LOS ANGELES HERALD volving a great mass of detail, for which they have not the necessary knowledge' or training. Pending further discussion the hour for adjournment left the matter yet to be settled. The admissions already made by Judge Hand imply a saving of not less than $30,000 a year, as the result of following Simmons's recommenda tions. Simmons is confident that if the rest of his recommendations are adopted, a saving of at least $50,000 annually will be effected. VANDERBILT'S WEALTH. A Nephew of the Old Commodore Sues for a Modest Slice. New York, May 26. —Action was be gun in the supreme court today, in which Henry Allen, a nephew of Com modore Vanderbilt, seeks a half-million slice of the estate left by the latter. Allen states that by his un cle's will $4,500,000 was given to the commodore's young widow and ten children (by the first wife) which he left, but the rest of the estate. $125,000, --000, went to William H. Vanderbilt. The mother of the plaintiff began a con test, and plaintiff claims that the con test was dropped by compromise. His suit is to recover the promised amount which was never paid. SMASHED THE RECORD. The Present Term of the Supreme Court A Business One. Washington, May 26. —The United States supreme court, during the term ending tomorrow, will have completely smashed the previous high rec ord of cases disposed of at one term of the court, settling 617 cases against 470, which heretofore has been the largest number passed upon at a single term. The number of cases presented is unusually large, but of them only fifteen, which have been argued, go over until next term for decision. It is probable that the opinions in these cases will be written for announcement soon after the court reconvenes. BAPTIST MISSIONARIES. MANY DIFFICULTIES ENCOUN TERED IN FOREIGN' FIELDS. National Feeling Retards the Work in Japan—The Blacks of Africa Want White Preaohers—China's Macedonian Cry. Cincinnati, May 29.—-At this morn ing's session of the American Baptist missionary union, work in different mis sionary fields was discussed. The com mittee on place and preacher report Philadelphia for nert year, and Rev. W. W. Boyd, of New Jersey, as preacher. Reports of work in Africa, Ja pan, Burmah and many other places were made. They invariably showed advancement. Rev. W. F. Tay lor, of Indianapolis, in speaking of Japan, said the people of that country 1 had become conscious of tbeir strength : "Japan for the Japanese," is the cry. This has proved a hindrance to mis sionary work, but is not altogether an evil. In Africa, Rev. Mr. Burtrick said, there is disappointment in securing col ored missionaries, andiu securing a wel come for them there. The Africans want white missionaries. At the closing session this afternoon officers were elected. Rev. Geo. W. Northrup, of Illinois, president; Rev. 11. S. Burrage, of Maine, recording sec retary. A number of addresses were made by missionaries who were present. The com mittee on China reported urging that pas tors lead their people in mission studies; that one hundred men be sent out as the Baptists' ratio of the one thousand asked in the Shanghai conference. Missionary Berchet, of China, gave interesting facts as a medical missionary, and urged larger attention to this phase of mission work and influence, pleading that each station have a medical mis sionary. Rev. Dr. White, of Minnesota, offered a resolution to this effect, which was adopted. Dr. Baldwin read a report on European missions. "Romanism," he said, "is a great hindrance to the cross. The mis sionaries in these peculiarly difficult fields call for large sympathy." Several missionaries spoke on the same subject. This afternoon a joint meeting of the mission society of women was held, and many addresses were made setting forth the work to be performed. In the evening, although the mis sionary union had formally adjourned, Pike's opera house was filled with an attentive audience, Dr. Yambie, with the aid of a stereoscope, giving illustra tions of many mission fields and workers. The week of anniversary meet ing was then concluded with a benedic tion by Rev. Dr. Duncan. THK POACHERS' PICNIC. They Have a Long Start of the Revenue Officers. Washington, May 26.—The seal fish eries matter was considered at a cabinet meeting today at length, but no conclu sion was reached. Secretary Foster and the assistant secretary of state will have a special confer ence with the president tomorrow, with the view of determining a plan of action. The president fully appreciates the ne cessity for prompt action in the matter, and is doing all in his power to arrange that there may be no further delay in the departure of the revenue cutters to the Bering sea, for the purpose of pro tectingthe intereßtsof the United States. If these vessels were to start now they would not reach the fisheries until the middle oi June or fifteen days after the opening of the season, and it is under stood that fifty-nine poaching vessels are now in the vicinity of the Bering sea, threatening the pursuit and slaughter of seals. The North American commercial company's steamer left San Francisco for the seal islands about a week ago, and will probably arrive there by the end of the month, when em ployees of the company will at once proceed to take seals and continue to do so until the entire number allowed by the law is secured, unless some order is received from the officials at Wash ington to the contrary.

The result showed that Doo ley was no match for Choynski, for the latter knocked him out in two rounds. From the moment the men entered the ring, Choynski adopted hustling tactics, and in a short time he drove Dooley to the ropes. When the men faced each other in the second round, it was fur ther demonstrated that Choynski was the superior of Dooley.

Chicago, May 26.—The confirmation of Maxwell, as chief of the horticultural bureau of the world's fair, still hangs fire. The special committee has not yet reported.

Galena, Kan., May 26. —Several weeks ago Mrs. Blanche McKey, from Colo rado, came here to visit her mother. She was accompanied by two children, aged 6 years and 2 months, respectively. She had not been here long when Wm. Alvord,also of Colorado, appeared on the scejie. He and Mrs. McKey were evi dently on very intimate terms. On Sunday afternoon Alvord went walking in the woods with Mrs. McKey and her two children. The oldest child returned home at 4 o'clock. Mrs. McKey and the youngest child were never again seen alive. A searching party today discovered the bodies of the mother and child hanging to a tree in the woods, where they had been walking on Sunday.

A PRETTY HOW-D'YE-DO. The New Orleans Grand Jury Finds That Bribers Cannot Be Punished. New Orleans, May 26. —The grand jury has found an indictment against, I McCrystal and Cooney, two of O'Mal ley's assistants, for attempting to bribe jurors. But the grand jury is not in a pleasant frame of mind, for after inves tigating bribery for over a week it has made the discovery that there is no law to punish offenders. The bribery act covering the matter has no penal clause. When the case of Deputy Sheriff White, charged with bribery in connec tion with the Heunessy case, was called today, Leon Burthe, the principal wit ness for the state, was found to be miss ing. Inquiry elicited the fact that he had gone to St. Louis after the summons was served on him. The shipping away of the principal witness in the first of the bribery cases called, is regarded as strong circumstantial evidence against the accused. Fyffe Committed for Trial. London, May 26.—C.
