The Standing 'Committee of the Dio
cese of Tennessee met in this city on Sat
urday, the 'i!d ol December, 18S3, for p
propriate action on the occasion of tho
recent death of the Kov. Edgar Orgain,
late member of said committee, the Rev.
George White. D. D.. President, in the
chair, when the following report, pre
sented by Judge Sneed, was ordered to be
spread Uwn the minutes, and a copy
thereof presented to the diocesan conven
tion at its next annual meeting with the
request tint it be entered upon tho Journal
thereof:
Whereas. It has uleased Almiarhtv Ood
to call unto himself tha snirit of our broth
er, the Kev. Kdgar Orgun, late rector of
Grace church, Memphis, and a member
of thit committee. While we can but re
alize that in the death of such a man,
"how beautiful to die like the watcliworn
sentinel upon the outer walls of ion,"
yet we count it but a sinless sorrow to de
plore a dispensation which, through a
mercy to the aead, nas loft the living In
tears. An intrepid soldier ol the CJoss he
was yet affable, generous and just as a cit
izen, genial ana entertaining at a com
panion and so harmonious! v blended the
?;race of the true gentleman with a never
altering aoal for Christ, that the very
symmetry oi nil nnstian cuaracter,
in and out of the pulpit, was an elo
quent and continuous appeal to all men
for a purer and better life. As a church
man, he fashioned his doctrinal polity
alter the maxim of Melancthon, unity in
essentials, liberty In non-essentials, char
ity in all things. As a clergyman, he
made the pathway to the church inviting
by repelling the spirit of intolerance, and
bruising the head of the spirit of bigotry,
too often found acrott it. and he charmed
the people to the holy altar, not by
priestly traditions of creed and doc me,
but by the all-sufficient pathos of the
cross. Flushed with a noble nride In his
exalted mission recognising out one pre
eminent moaei lor toe Christian life tins
young warrior, though fallen upon ths
skirmish line, had made a history
especially in one respect, profitable not
only for doctrine to all, but to some
of us for reproof also. He saw no appre
ciable difference in the value of human
soult. To the beggar and the millionaire
alike he felt it to be his mission, as it was
hit pleasure, to carry the sweet manna of
me gospci ana oi an tne tears now tail
ing on his new made grave, none tell a
more touching story than those of tbe
poor widows and orphans, the homeless
and tho friendless he has succored in dis
trait and counioled In misfortune. The
death of inch a man is a calamity to the
cnurcn, a bereavement to tho community,
a special sorrow to thii committee, whili
to those who were bound to him by a tie
more tendor Hill It is a grief to which
human condolence brings no fortitude,
and nothing less than tho grace of tiod
can bring resignation.

1 Sew Trial to be
Applied For.
Special lo Little Rgok a.iMI..
Pine IlLuvr, December 20 The case
of Tbe Hutu vs Alfred Werner, charged
with tbe murder of Win. Sharp, las
occupied the attention f the Circuit
Court all day. The examination of wit
nesses began thit afternoon.
Isaac llarrison, an ex-conv'ct of the
Dosha county farm, wai called to the
stand and testified that he was in the cot
ton Held on Monday afternoon, July 18th,
when Sl.arp was whipped the last time.
Albert Kest had beckoned to Werner to
corao from another part of the field.
Werner came up on horseback and asked
what was the matter, and was told that
Sharp would not or could not work.
Werner ordered the other prisoners to
take him down, and Dan Freeman to
strip him. Sharp's, back and legs were
bared, and bo was held by six men while
Freeman flogged him. He was beaten up
and down tbe back and legs with a heavy
piece of gin belting fastened U a wooden
handle. Witness Judged that he was
given about Uftv licks. Sharp cried out:
"Mr, Worrier please have pity on a poor
white man." Sharn was given about five
more lashes, and Werner told Freeman
to stop and give him tbe balance the fol
lowing day. Sharp was taken to the jail
and died while the prisoners were eating
supper. lis was buried about sun up the
next day.
Frank Wiley, James Walker and James
White, also ex-convicts, were examined,
their testimony corroborating Harris', ex
cept in minor details.
Henry Johnton, a white man and ex
convict, tottilied that on the Thursday
previous to Sharp's death, Werner, Vest
and Freeman came to the Jail about 8
o'clock. Werner asked for Sharp, who
stepped out of the Jail door.wheu Werner
said: "You damned Yankee tramp, you
fave my guards some trouble to-day, and
want you to understand you are under
the same regulations as Iheblalo convicts,
and if you give my men anymore trouble
I will give you one hundred lashes a day.
And, dama you, dead men tell no tales "
This testimony caused considerable stir in
tne courtroom, and the defense asked that
it be repeated and taken down.
After examining .luhnsnn tl,A rvtnrt a.l.
journed until 7:30, and is in session at this
writing. It is understood that the de
fense's line of argument will bo the in
credibility of tho State's chief witnesses,
and the physician's cerlillnate that the de
ceased died from brain fover.
A large crowd remained in tbe court
room all day. and unusual interest it man
ifested. A delicate legal proposition was
presented in taking tho testimony, the
court ruling in favor of tho State and the
defense giving notice of exception. The
case will probably occupy the court dur
ing the remainder of the week.
PiNlBLUTr, Abk., December 22.
The Court convened at 9 am. The morn
ing was consumed in submitting and ar
guing the instructions. Prosecuting At
torney Elliott began hisargument at 11:80
and spoke for about an hour and a half
and presenting the Slate's case in an able
and masterly manner.
He was followed by H.KingWhite and
W. P. Orace of the defense, each of whom
consumed about tbe same time. Their
arguments were confined chiefly to the
testimony of the ex-convicts whom they
represented as resting under a cloud, and
unworthy the belief of the Jurors. Col.
Grace also dwelt at length upon the doubt
as to the defendant's guilt, which thecon
fliotof testimony must create in the jurors'
minds.
The case wai closed for the State bv W.

At this hour no verdict has been returned.

THE A I TO US FUND.

eelved by the Iruaileea.
New York Times.
One of tha Times' reporters dropped
10 at tuo otiioe oi mo Actors ruoa a
lew days ao, and found the eiecu
tivo oommittce encaged in ths oon
liberation el application lor relief:
We act all kmds ot letters here,
said tuo chairman, "We have appli
cations for holp Irom people who don't
need it at all, and Irom otuors to nelp
whom dofs not oomo within our prov
ince. When wo refuss these people
they make an outcry, and the papers
print their stories, thus injuring us.
bur books will show that we applied
in tha month of November 'over
11800 to the relief oi aotort ind
actresses, and we are doing that all
the lime. Sit down and observe our
proceedings.'
The renorter did aa be Was asked.
The first ease was that of a woman who
bad pneumonia and also going blind.
Her husband bad to take eare ol her.
The doctor in attendance advised that
she be allowed 110 a week
for four weeks This was ordered,
and the order was indorsed by the
trustees present. "Each case," said
tbe chairman, "has to be investigated
by a responsible person and indorsed
by i responsible manager before the
trustees will sign any orders." The
next letter was from a min who
claimed to be wholly paralysed. Mr.
Baker wanted to know how he wrote
his letter, and the others gave it up.
lie stated in his communication that
he was confined to his bed in a oortain
Western hospital. The secretary of
the lund had written there tor infor
mation concerning the man and had
received none. The books showed
that be had already received nearly
$100. It wu finally ordered that the
secretary should write once more to
the hospital mentioned. Then came a
letter from a manager informing the
trustees that a oertain variety dancer
was laid up in a New York town and
was a deserving person in need of help.
It wu ordored that a sum of
money be paid him weekly for several
weeks until he recovered Irom his ill
ness. A bill of tu'l tor hospital and
tuneral expenses in a western town
wu next audited and ordered to be
paid. A letter wu then read from a
young woman who had been ill sinoe
last May. She had recently asked for
and received assistance for four weeks
from the fund and would be very
grateful for more. liur request was
granted, as she wu known to be de
serving. Then came a letter from a
company which was stranded in
Youngstown, O., asking fur money to
get baok to New York.
"We don't help stranded compa
nies," said the chairman; the fund is
not for that purpose.
Next came a letter from a youug
woman who wu bnrt in an accident
st the Fourteenth street Theater
early iu the season, She has a blind
husband.
"I do not think," said one of the trus
tees, that we ought to try to support
this young woman'sbusband, 1 know
bis case well; he is blind for lite and
ought to go to an asylum, instead ol
trying to live on bis wile s earnings.
She is only a ballot girl and can't earn
more than t7 or ty per week. I think
she ought to have some assiatanoe,
however, for she is a worthy young
woman.
"Well," remarked another, "Mr.
Col vil lo is paying her rent for her."
" Yes," said a third, "he's been kind,'
but she oao't eat her house, you
know."
It wu therefore deoided to pay her
tG per week until sbe is able to work.
The next letter wu amusing. A
traveling manager met an aotor out
West who wu in a destitute condition,
though in good health. The manager
gave him t'io pay his faro to C'liioa
go, $2 for hotel bill, and 12 for pocket
money, and called upon the fund to
reimburse him. Tho manager was
coldly left. A number ot other oases
were disposed of before the oloso ol
the meeting.
