T\Hien asked what course the noted Cu tm.s; would Hkcly pursue, the Doctor ex pressed the opinion that he would likely elti-nipt to run an independent mission. Already a Baptist: association ; had taken .him up, ..and other',.; bodies not in sympa thy.: with the convention, he thought. : would lake similar action. ""Next to this." Dr. Pitt said, "was the fln«> fraternal spirit of the meeting. This was notable, and; was^much talked of.

Dr. Pitt further said that tho conven tion was thoroughly, aggressive ; j n sprit, arid would set the figures for missionary oprrations this yea.r far ahead of the last. He expressed the opinion that within -the next few years the convention would pay especial attention to Christian, edu cation as one of the great evangelizing forces. ..; Among those who returned by the Southern train arriving. .here at G:25 P.M. / v; ere Dr. and Mrs. -.Pitt.

Similny Observance I.eaprne Deter iniiicd to Break Up Soda Snloons. ; The Sunday-Observance League is not content with its record in the matter of closing the saloons of the city on Sundays, but will probably.: tako immediate steps to see that the- law is enforced in regard to the soda-water and refreshment saloons that are now run openly and in defiance of the law. . The league has observed the methods of the confectioners for some time, and they are confident that a better observance of the law can be had if the matter is prop erly pushed. That there is a demand for refresh ments in the city and in the parks on Sundays the league is ready . to admit; but it is ready also to object to the methods employed by those in charge of the refreshment counters. It is probable that some action will bo taken at nn early date to see that- the most gross violators of the Sunday ; law. are brought to account for their actions by the instigation of the league. Such at least is the opinion of those who are in a position to see the drift of things in this line. . STIIIKING BOX-MAKERS. Tliey Ueciile Not io Return to Work Under Old Foreman.

THE SUBMARINE BOAT FULTON. licport In Explanation of the Ex ' plosion of April 2Sth. WASHINGTON, D. C— May 13.—(Spe cial.)— Yesterday' the Holland Torpedo- Boat Company, through their secretary, Mr.. E. B. Frost, made a report to the Navj',' Department in explanation of the explosion which occurred on the subma rine boat Fulton,. April 2Sth, while in Dele ware breakwater. On May 3d Secretary of the Navy. Moody, in ;a communication to' the company, requested them to. in form: the department as to the cause, of the explosion, and asked what measures could bo. taken.: to prevent similar occur rences on submarine boats of the Holland type, now being constructed for the gov ernment. • /At the time of tho explosion, it was as cribed through, popular reports all over the country to gasoline combustion. This is denied absolutely by Mr. Frost, in his report. He points out that the battery deck, constructed of 2-inch yellow: pine, and held in place by its own weight and the weight of fittings thereon,, was found comparatively uninjured after the;explo sion, the exception being slight splits on some portions of the deck and the lockers on top of it. This constituted, the re-, port maintains, the sole actual injury to the boat. / "Not a single gauge-glass or other semi-fragile fitting in the vicinity was injured in the least," writes Mr. Frost. "The gasoline tank,! engine, pipings, and connections were absolutely ' sound throughout." NOT DUE TO GASOLINE. . : The. report says that it Is obvious from the above description that the explosion took place under the battery deck, and could not by. any possibility be'ascribed to the use or presence of. gasoline, arguing that even had there been a leak of gaso lino the escaping fluid could. not have en tered into the battery tank; and as above described, the .gasoline tank and -lines were found after the accident to be per fectly tight and uninjured. . In addition, there, were, .present none of the accom panying fumes of , gasoline," says the re port It appears from this statement that the products of combustion in the engine \yere not explosive, and in addition the engine exhausts were perfectly tight after the accident. The report then. fixes defin itely the cause of the explosion as the re sult of an explosive mixture of gas gene rated in some way by the storage battery, and which had collected under the battery deck and had there been ignited. This Inevitable conclusion is arrived at after a conference with four of the highest authorities on the subject of electric stor age batteries. "Consequently," : remarks Mr. Frost, "the accident was undoubtedly due to the collection of an explosive mix ture of hydrogen and air over the top of the battery and under the battery, deck, ignited/by a spark caused by a ground." The report then goes into a technical ex planation, of the presence, of hydrogen primarily caused by the penetration of salt water in the large battery tank that holds the cells, which condition was caused by the accidental sinking of the Fulton at her dock when she be came filled with salt water. PROPOSED REMEDY. ;To prevent future accidents of this character, the report offers this remedy. It says: "The battery tanks of the Fulton and of boats building for the government are provided with a special ventilating blower, which, when running, ensues a circulation of air through tho battery tanks. Therefore, in order to prevent a recurrenco of this accident, and to pre vent any possible accident of a similar nature, it is only necessary to run the blower as at .present installed, at .fre quent intervals, or to so modify the blower connections as to enable it to be run con tinuously at a lower speed. It appears, then, that' it is entirely unnecessary, to make any modification of the Boat itself, as all that will be required is the proper use of the apparatus now installed.". Mr. Frost . remarks that the brief review of the circumstances leading up to and sur rounding the accident and the results thereof can be easily verified by the Navy .Department, through its representatives who were on board the vessel at the time. .THE HOLLAND'S RECORD. / The report then shows -the excellent re cord made by the Holland, which has made over 500 dives and has never suf fered an explosive accident of any sort or nature, nor was any difficulty ever en countered through the leakage of gasoline. The Fulton has been in commission sinca October, 1901, and has made over 200 dives, and the accident mentioned is the only mishap that- has- ever occurred to her, with the exception of her sinking at. the dock, . which was due to gross: careless ness.- "Tho record of these boats," said Mr. Frost, "speaks for itself, when com pared with the records of ordinary sur face navigation. In conclusion, we desire to point out to the department that un questionably the importance of this acci dent has been unduly exaggerated by the public press and common .report, on ac count of ; the widespread, popular interest concerning the subject of submarina navi gation."

Montague and likened him to the great Andrew Jackson. Captain Patteson alluding to/a letter published in the Dispatch from Sen ator Daniel on the question of submission, he said, he had followed Daniel far and long and had: loved him as lie had love' 3 few men. but when in the letter referred to he (Daniel) had declared for submit ting the work of the convention to the "Underwood" electorate he could follow him no further. - . • Senator. Frank C. Moon was the next speaker and he said the pledge of the Democratic party was to submit the work of the convention to the people. In an swer to a question he said he was for submission to. the present electorate and if we could not get that he was for sub mitting It to the abridged electorate. Mr. Moon said he had. not considered all the provisions of the proposed organic law himself and he wanted it; to come before the people that they might read and con sider It. He then proceeded to crfticlze some of the provisions of the Constitution, and was asked by Captain Patteson who it was changed tho bill which provided for one representative for the county of Buckingham, and his reply was that tho Legislature of Virginia did It. There was. an effort made to postpone any action regarding instructing the "dele gate as to his vote on the submission question until a larger crowd of citizens could be gotten together buf : there was considerable confusion, and the crowd seemed about equally divided on the ques tion of postponement. Finally, the ques tion of instructing was voted on and car ried and Hon. E. W. Hubard will be asked to vote for proclaiming the new Constitution. ; EXPLOSION IN FREDERICKSBtiIG.
