A strong political color was given tho
discussion ou the temperance question
Monday by tho bitter arraignment of
President McKinley because of his at
tit udo on tho anti -canteen lnw, but
after some decidedly warm debato tho
conference refused to criticise tho utti-
tudo of tho chief magistrate, by striking
out by an overwhelming vote all refer
ence to any action on his part or Hint of
Attorney General Griggs. The mi
nority report on amuscmonts, accopted
Saturday, was to tho surprise of many
laid ou tho table, which action leaves

Chicago, May 28. By tho laying on
of the liandsof 12 bishops and in tho
presence of 3,000 persons, at tho Audi

Tho newly cousecrcrnted bishops are:
David Hustings Moore, assigned to tho
Shanghai district; John William Ham
iltou, assigned to the Sun Francisco
district; Edwin Wallace Parker nnd
Frank Wesley Warno, missionary bishops
assigned to India and Malaysia. The
ceieinonles were brief and simple, The
delegates to tho conference and hundreds
of their friends came forward when the
services were at an end, and crowded the
stage to congratulate tho four new bishops.
Kuv. lr. lioyt Said ll Made an Expan
alon Speech Some Five
Year Ago.
Dktkoit, May 28. Expansion senti
ment was rife at the missionary mass
meeting held last night, as ono of the
features of tho American Baptist mis
sionaries. Dr. Waylnnd Hoyt, of Phila
delphia, began his address on tho sub
ject of "Denomination Expansion Iu
Regard to tho Baptist Publication Soci
ety," by quoting from a speech deliv
ered by Senator Hoar at a children's day
celebration iu Massachusetts some five
years ngo, at which time tho anti-ini.
porialist statesman is reported to havo
said that tho tree of liberty ond self
government set ont by tho fathers of
tho republic, having spread across tho
continent, its roots would "in good tinio
thrust themselves beneath tho waves
and spread to the isles of tho sea."
"This prediction," said Dr. Iloyt,
"came true moro quickly than the dis
tingnished senator anticipated and evi
dently more quickly than he desired. If
it is true that ho made this eloquentand
logical statement in 18!).j, 100 anti-expansion
secches nindo iu WOO could
not efface tho effevj of that truthful pre
diction." Dr. Hoyt argued eloquently for ex
pansion in missionary effort, keeping
lice at least with the progress of tho
American Hug.
Madison C. Peters, of Now York,
also argued strongly for political and
religions expansion in his address con
cerning expnnsion of the work of the
Baptist Homo Mission society.
Rev. Theodore G. Soares, Ph. D., of
Illinois, tqxike along similar lines in re
lation to tho work of the Baptist Mis
sionary (Foreign) union.
Ono of tho Sunday features was tho
dedication of tho new missionary chapel
car "Herald of Hope." Tho car is tho
sixth placed in service by tho Baptists
of America within the past six years,
tho expense of which lins beeu sustained
wholly by free will offerings.

Chicaoo, May 2S. Three hundred po
lice olllcers of the city of Chicago, head
ed by Chief Kipley, and every man
bearing a repeating riflo, marched from
tho East Chicago avenue station, on tho
North Sido, to the foot of Snperioi
Btroet, where Captain Georgo Strectoi
had fortified himself on a strip of land
created by tho washing np of soil from
tho bed of Lako Michigan, aud which
Streeter claims as his property by righl
of discovery.
In the entrenchments were about 70
men armed with rifles and two Gatling
gnns. Enrlier in the day a party of Lin
coln officials had been fired upon by
pickets around the Improvised fort, and
a boy 14 years old hnd been wounded
severely in tho right leg. A horse driven-by
the park officials had been killed.
A fircboat.with a Gatling gun aboard,
was dispatched np Lake Michigan tc
make a demonstration from that side
and to cut off tho escape of Strecter'j
men by means of their yacht.
A man named Niles surrendered tt
tho park police on seeing tho other for
approach. Ho and four men were
roughly handled by tho crowd that
gathered, tho rest escaping in the
throng. Captain Streeter was not found
at tho fort.
Tho land Streeter claimed to own
would, if his titlo to it wero clear, be
worth, between $10,000,000 aud 50,000,-
000. In 1885 Captain Streoter and hid
wifo were stranded ou a little sandbar I

gathered about him. They carried the
matter into court. Tho supremo court
of tho United States decided tliat tho
land was within tho jurisdiction of the
state of Illinois. Streeter, thereupon,
offered tho district to the federal gov
ernment. A year ago ho organized, nnder the

New Youk, May 28. A total eclipse
of the sun was visiblo iu tho United
States today aud in portions of the east
ern hemisphere, during which the
shadow of the moon swept over tho gull
states, North Carolina and Southeastern
The shadow first struck the earth in
tho Pacific ocean, off the coast of South
ern California, but the total phase oc
curred so soon after suuriso that the
phenomenon was not well seen until the
8hudov reuched Now Orleans. From
this point to Norfolk it swept across the
country in nearly a straight lino. Un
fortunately, tho duration of the total
phase was rather short, being ouly
about 1 minute 13 seconds nt New Or
leans and alxmt 1 minute 40 seconds nl
Norfolk. Tho longest duration was
alxmt 2 minutes 8 seconds.
A unniber of astronomers wero in the
south, for observation, while somo ol
the EuroiH-nns wero expected to observe
it in tho Mediterranean region. Al
lenst two Americans were in that region

Prof. David P. Todd, of Amherst col
lege, ns his coadjutor, fitted up a special
expedition to observe the eclipse al
Tripoli, at which point they arrived
with their instruments and materials
moro than a month ago.
A number of parties from American
colleges observed tho eclipse at Nor
folk, Va., Wadesboro, N. C, and other
Ono of tho pnrties iu the south was
that of Prof. Lnngley from the Smith'

magnificence of its outfit. It had been
aided by an appropriation from congress
A number of photographic telescopes
wero brought into requisition, two of
them of such long focus that they were
fixed in a horizoutnl position. The
image of tho eclipsed sun was thrown

New York, May 20.--R. G. Dun &
Co.'s weekly review of trado, issued to
day, said in part:
Transition to a moro natural range of
prices after a time of extraordinary buy
ing, speculation and rise, is not wholly
delightsome, however needful it may be
i business health. Bat the gradual
change this year, though wearying, has
given opportunity in various branches
to avoid losses. It is nearly six months
since the highest prices of pig iron were
reached, Nov. 20, and of wool, Dec. 1,
whilo hides reached their maximum
Dec. 13, leather and iron products Jan.
10, boots and shoes Jan. 24, woolens
Feb. 21, and cotton and cotton goods
March 21.
The tables given by this paper have
shown that the highest point for all
prices was March 16, and after two
mouths of slow decline the range for all
prices was but 4.5 per cent lower May
1G. But tho past week has added its
full share, a fall of 4' per ceut in cot
ton, 3 per ceut in pig iron, 1.5 per cent
in pig iron products, 2 per cent in hides,
2'a iu boots and shoes, and 3'j iu leath
er, 3' j in jietroleum, and a little in oth
er products.
Tho decline in cotton was rendered
sensational by tho failure of the firm
which had most strongly resisted it.
Weakness in wool, as yot not enough
to prompt heavy buying, has hindered
free purchases of goods without doubt,
and there is of Lite somewhat more com
plaint of cancellations and of slow col
lections. But the market is waiting
rather tlinn unhealthy, with quick ad
justment to a lower rnnge of prices for
material it might soon become as active
as at any other time for years.
Tho nominal price of Bessemor pig is
held without change at Pittsburg, and
without transactions. Bessemor is of
fered much below tho $24.90 asked by
the association, while prices of finished
products of iron and steel hove docliued
more thau 10 per cent within twe
months without any reduction in rails,
structural shapes or iu sheets. No. 1
Lehigh pig is quoted here at $21 and the
best anthracite 122 at Philadelphia. But
doubt about snfilcieut supplies of steel
making iron for coming months seems
the ono impediment to renewal of actiV'
ity. Tin is also a shade lower, with
copjier aud lead unchangod this week
Salos of Coiiuollsvillo coke come below
prices recently quoted and exhibit in a
strong light tho change in the manufac
ture of iron.
The movement of breadstuffs has no)
materially changed, Atlantic exports of
wheat, flour included, having been in
four weeks 10,405,397 bushels against
8,657,165 Inst year; Paciflo exports,
2,791,791, against 1,932,703 last year,
and exports of corn 13,917,631, against
10,267,6(13 last year. Prices have
changed very littlo.
Failures for the week have been 185
