Hun dreds of delegates arose from their sea^s and surged toward the center of the hall, shouting at the tops of their voices in protest aaginst a decision of the presid ing officer regarding the carrying out of the programme. Several of the cooler heads sought to restore quiet but they were howled down. Finally the choir was called upon, and after several hymns were sung order was restored by the presiding officer modifying his decision to suit the discontents. The trouble arose over the announce ment that that part of the programme of yesterday covering greetings from the churches to the congress should be aban doned and the subjects outlined for to day taken up. This was objected to by hundreds of delegates, and when they wrere overruled the demonstration fol lowed. Today's morning session was pre sided over by Rev. W. D. Chappelle of Nashville, Tenn.

St. Petersburg, August 1.—The liberals are planning imposing demonstrations here and at Moscow for the funeral of the murderer, ex-Deputy Herzenstein. Given the present temper of people these demon strations may result In collisions and bloodshed such as marked the interment of Prince Troubetskoy. The liberals havo applied for permission to transport Her zensteln’s body In state through St. Pet ersburg from the Finnish to the Moscow railroad stations. This has not yet been granted. The constitutional democrats ascribe t'he murder of Herzenstein “to the counter terrorist league," otherwise known as the "Black Hundred,” with the alleged In tention of exacting from the liberal ranks life for a life of victims of the terrorists. Herzenstein is said to have been selected In vengeance for the death of General Koslov of the headquarters staff, who was murdered In the Plaza at Peterhof* on July 1. Two persons suspected of complicity in the murder and a gendarme of Terloki, who repeatedly has been seen in t'heir company, have been arrested. Premier Stolypin proceeded by yacht yesterday to Peterhof, where he laid be fore the Emperor for his signature the formal ukase appointing Count Hoyden, Prince Levoff and Alexander Guchkoff to portfolios In the re-organtzed cabinet. The announcement of the Emperor’s decision Is not expected before Friday, and fears are entertained that the revolt at Sveh borg may influence him unfavorably In the matter.

The New Florence ranks with the best hotels in the coun try and only words of prajse for the enterprise and taste of the management wore heard yesterday. The appointments of the hotel are said to be perfect. Every piece of furniture In the house is new and every room Is bright and airy. ALL FROM PARKER’S. Floral Decorations In the New Flor ence Furnished Exclusively By Bir mingham’s Leading Florist and Grower The thousands who attended the open ing of the New Hotel Florence were im pressed not only by the beauty and ex quisite arrangement of the tlorai decora tions and greenery but also by the pro fuseness of them. The Impression cre ated was that all the florists of the city had been called upon to furnish the dis play. This Is not the case, however. All the flowers, trees, shrubs. potted plants, vines and other greenery used on the four floors of the building came from the green houses of John L,. Parker, who gave his personal attention to the work ing out of the scheme of decoration. Asked by a friend last night If the oc casion had not taxed his resources, Mr. Parker smiled and said; "By no means. We could have filled half a dozen orders of the same size on the same day, with plenty of material to spare.” This Is unquestionably true, for Park er's green houses, which are at Helena station, on the South Pnsley car line, are tlie largest and most extensive In this section of the country, and he Is constant ly making additions to them in order to meet the requirements of a patronage which has spread all over Alabama and the near-bv states. John U Parker's position os’the leading florist and grower of the most prosperous section of the south is assured, and his name is known far beyond the confines of that territory.
