How tlio Sunday I'aper, II Properly Conducted, Can Bo & Great Power for Good. Boston, Mass., Not. 14.?"Tho Sunday Newspaper!," was the topic which engaged the attention of a large attendance at tha session of tho Episcopal Church Congress, at Jfusic hall, this eroninc. The subject was admirably diicussed by the many ablo speakers who took part. Biahop Lawrence proaided. The first apeaker introduced was Ber. Bobort A. Holland, D.D., of St. Louis. He said in substance that Sunday newspapers wero aa diverse as their number and that no word that characteriaed one would exactly doscribo another. In a masterly manner he ahowed how the newapapor of the present day was a searchlight thrown into every hiding place. "Its condemnation turns crowns to death-caps. Many a rich scamp fears it who does not fear tho civil laws. He knows not the day nor the hour when upon Romo liason. somo orgio, aomo swindling, tho newspaper will come as a'thief in the night' nnd imp oft his false reputation and wrap him in shamo that ihall burn tho vory flesh Irom his bones. Virtue does feats, aud whenever its deeds aro featly tho newspaper notes I them as worthy of tho world's oye. ! "Day by day; each day between two nights, a distinct lifo betweon a birth | and a douth; the day that has uo nowspaper losing that much of the world's life from consciousness; to-day's nowapaper is a back numbor, to-morrow an obituary, an odor of death. Wo ncod the papers. THE 8UNDAY PAPER. "What of the day in seven callod tho i day of rest? Shall the world's consciousness sloep then, or bo moro than ever awake? For myself, I must hold Sunday in truth to its day?a day of tho sun, and that tho observance of it to bo holiest which is sunny, most alive with light. Because it is a holy day, it is also a holiday. It bids man feast, not fast. The Sunday nowspapor, without detaining tho fow who seek tho highest heaven, saves millions of poor souls lrom listleBi stupor or ignorant paatimo by drawing their intorest in the world's daily lifo to an ampler reading than work days permit. It is their one book, their museum, thoirart gallery." 11av. C. George Currie, D. D., presented the next paper. He said in part: "It goes without saying that tho secular newspaper is ono of our most important institutions. It is necessary to tho presont type of civilization.' It is thus indispensable to free government; it is so much so that you may safely say that it is a quasi-divino institution, yot tho Sunday paper occiipios us oxclu- ! aively with other days' interests. It1 throws open the stores for us and puts us into tho midst ot the markets, and takes us froquently, in columu after column, through scones of sin and horror. "It is hard to see how poople can justify the immediate prefacing thoir ' prayers and their holy communion by partaking sacramentally an hour before of the world, the flesh and the devil, through tho columns of tho Sunday press." Mr. Richard A. Dfcna, tho next speaker to support his ||aims as to tho noedleaahew of Sunday nowspapor, used tho Buramary of a particular showing the matter provided for the edification of its readers, lie said: MR. DANA'S COMPARISON. Mr. Dana said ho had obtained twenty-onn papers from tlio cities of Boston, Now York, Philadelphia, Baltimore, Chicago, Cincinnati, St. Louis, Louinvillo, Atlanta and San Francisco. What first imnrossed him was the size of these journals, the nverngo of thom being in reading matter alone equal to ono and a half times the contents of tho now testament. The illustrations of the papors wore for tho most part crudo and inartistic. The moral effect of fivo of them was bad, and of twonty-livo very doubtful. Many of tho comic pictures relied on vulgarity for thoir wit Only two papors out of tho twonty-ono had anything liko a serious bit of church reading. Ono of these had two columns and a half hoaded, "Church Circlos," contaminant! original hymn, a short prayororcolloct, and an address, and a very good ono, too, on bravory. This constituted about ono-thousandth part of tho paper. Tho characteristic of tho paper Mr. Dana had examinod was a boliUling of subjects troatod, as if to bring thorn down to tho intolligonco of inferior JJ1IIIU8. There wore undoubtedly Rood nrticlas here and thero on interesting topics of the day, and occasionally well treated; they made, however, in the bast papers but a imall part of the whole,and many a reader trying to confine his attention to the best articles alone would continually find himself led into readiiur many thine* to the loss of his tune, brains anil mental self-respect. Then, too, the man who takos the Sunday paper just for the purposo of glancing at a fow items, must romoinbor what ho is taking into his home, with tlinillutrations, the head line* and tlio alluring stories. The week day paper is iisually road on the way to or irorn the ollice or store, but tlio Huuday paper m read in tho home. nKPonM NEKDBD. In concluding .Mr. JJana said: "80 far, I have spokon ot tho Sunday pnpor only as it is at presonU As to i^'liat it might be made in tho future, if the millions of papers taken into milJlona ol families each Sunday could givo the news in a abort, dignified .manner, with aomo well thought-out discussion of the interesting topica of the .day, atoriea of good atyle and elevating tendency, adapted to the general reader, helpful literary review* and suggestions for reading, good poetry and afairvariety of what ia at least not harmful, and altogether about one-third of the present length, then, though I beliero molt of ui would bo botter without it. atill it would ba a great improvement over our present state of affairs and porhaps in aomo familiea whore good literature cannot bo bad, probably a real benefit. Tho preacnt Sunday paper ia lowering, not elevating. Every foreigner coming to this country obiervea the fact and ovory true man, ba bo American or foreign born lainoilts it." Rev. Harry 1'. Nichols, of Minneapolis, Minn., championed thecauso ot" the Knnilau nawananara in an aKla mannaP and Hov. W. Kirkas, l> D. of Jeriey City Heights, N. J., tbe closing speaker, ill a humorous manner criticised the speakers who had gpoken against tbe Sunday's newspaper. To-morrow morning's session will be dorotod to a discussion of religious ordors in the Protestant Episcopal church.

The President emphatically denied the entire "batch of silly misstate* menti," and said: "Never since our aisociation togoth- j or has there been tho slightest unpleasantness or difference concerning the at- j IttllQ wi muoaui/ uvfuiviuwun w> ""J i other matter..

If such a schemo is presented it will bo the work of tho secretary of the treasury, and I shall endorse and support it.

Wasiiinoton, D. 0., Nov. 11?There is nothing sensational in the statoment that Assistant Secretary Hamlin has I been designated by the Presidont to act for tho coaling six months as secretary I of tho treasury during tho absonce of j Secretary Carlisle from the department. The designation of Mr. Hamlin to act as secretary is in continuation o! a custom which has prevailed in tho treasury department over since Mr. Carlisle has been secretary. Each of the threo assistants serves in this capacity for half a year in rotation and as acting aecrotary they sign all papers of a routine character, thus relieving tho Becre* tary from this onorous duty.

While this statement is probably litor* allycorroct there is roaaon to bollevo that Japan ban requested as a preliminary to action upon our invitation, that she bo informed explicitly just what torras China lias to proposo as a basis of1 a treaty of peace. Up to this momont China u&a not submitted any dofluite proposals, so that the delay appears to bo rather on her oart than with Japan. < .1 Mmrlntttl.

Tho iiell, Low id & Yates Mining Company have poated a notice that nftor November 10 tho rate in their minos would bo roduced five coots per ton to thirty-five conta. Abont l?,000 mon aro affoctod, and tbore is talk of a Btriko. The BerwyndWhito Mining Company, in the samo district, employing 0,500 men, will probably follow this example of reduction and a general lowering of the scale rati* iu the district will result. Tho operators in tho Pittsburgh district have threatened to make reductions. and will now probably be forced to this ond in order to compete with coal from tho Clearfiold district. The reason givon by tho Cleariiold operators for the cut is that coal is being mined cheapor in this district. Tho Arbitration Coiigromi.
