New York, »Doc. 5.—In the absence of
Jehu D. Playback William E. Dinlgo pro
ftuhxl at the sworn! day's session of tin» Chris
tian conference at Chickwing luill. The
Rev. Vincent 1'iscck, jumtor of a.Hobotuian
mission church, was the first fjvakor. Ilo
said that the «30,000 Bohemians in thh> city
were, contrary to general nssumptioa, a
peaceful lot, well dis; toset l toward church
anil religion. But the Bohemian colony wiw
cursed with the tenement house system of
cigarmaking, prolific of many evils. Once
fairly prosperous, it had within recent years
sutTertHl privation and want.
The Bev. Antonio Arrighi, minister of the
Italian chapel at the Five Points IIousa of
Industry, urged the necessity of educating
his countrymen, who come here without evil
intention, but densely ignorant of the nature
of free institutions. They must be reached
by iiursonal effort or not at all.
Rev. II. A. Monroe (colored) apoko kindly
of a Catholic church that hud re-enforced
the three Protestant places of worship in
striving with the tough colored element in
Thompson street. About 7,000 of the 80,000
negroes in the city attended church, ho said,
mid their nine churches were filled every
Sabbath night. But the Hunday school work
was behind, and workers were badly needed.
Dr. MacArtbur, of the Calvary Baptist
church, thought it was the duty of the com
munity to receive the immigrants, but to
insist that they must stay as Americans.
They should be brought into the churches.
He thought little of mission churches. The
l> st churches wore none too good for the
pxirest, and they should bo always open.
At the evening fusion the Hev. Richard
Hartley presented the results of nineteen
years of work of the Baptist city mission.
Beginning with an annual collection of
high water murk was reached lost
year, when $40,000 was collected. Sixteen
churches had lxs»n built with tho money.
Before Now- Year's day four new Baptist
chnrehos will Is» opened in Now York.
Archdeacon Alexander Muckay Smith re
viewed the field of usefulness of the sixty-ono
Episcopal parishes. Twenty-five of the
churches are freo, yet their attendance is not
nearly up to the mark. The speaker found
that the Sunday newspaper and long ami
tedious Sunday services were tho princi|tal
causes of the non-church going evil, and rec
ommended sanctified common tense os a
Èvcrctt P. Wheeler, president of the
Church club, urged the necessity of lay co
operation, the lack of which tboarehdi
had deplored. In it he found the solution of
the problem now puzzling the church*».

''a, Doc. 5. — That
beautiful ami historic estât« known as Chat

war as the Lucy house, on the heights i
looking Fredericks!mrg, which was crowned
with Union artillery in Pea, was sold liy the
present owner, Oliver Watson, to a wealthy
lawyer, D. McMahon, of the firm of .McMa
hon A Hundley, of New York, for $50,060.
Tho «state consists of -MR) acres, nearly all in
a high state of cultivation. The mansion, a
largo brick building, was erected in colonial
times by William Fitzhiigh, most of the
tonal having been brought from England.
The place figured conspicuously In the days
of the revolution, as well as in later wars.
Gen. Washington courted his wife beneath
one of the trees adjoining the lawn, and later
Gen. Roliert E. Leo won his bride near the
same spot. The building was occupied by
Gea Burnside as headquarters during his
siege of this place, and Gem Hooker gave
special Olliers that three trees standing in the
yard, named "Faith," "Hope" and "Charity,"
because of their association, should not tie

New York, Doc. S.—The Republican
adopted n report ot a sub-c numittou declar
ing that John J. O'Brien had sold out the
local and state ticket at tho recent election
and should lie deposed from the leadership ill
the Eighth assembly district. Barney Biglin
and John E. Brodsky were the only defenders
of O'Brien. They admitted that he took
money from Tammany, but said it was neces
sary to sacrifice local Republican interests in
order to save tho national ticket. The action
of the executive committee will doubtless be
confirmed nt tonight's meeting of the full
county committee, though O'Brien, Biglin
and Brodsky will probably make tho meeting
lively with their opposition. In their report
the sub-committee said that O'Brien received
»3,100 from tho County Democracy, »4,(550
from Tammany and »1,750 from thu Repub
licans on tho congressional ticket alone. He
worked only for the Tammany man, however.

Wliltc Caps Invade Columbus.
Columbus, O., Dec. 5.— That the White
Caps have arrived here, and purpose doing
business in this city, is indicated by tho fol
lowing letter received by Mr. Welch: "Dear
Sir—X am captain of tho White Caps, and
am looking up men who drink and abuse
their families, and you are among them.
Take warning from this. If you don't
will use the black snake." The signature to
this letter was a picture of a black
whip. Mr. Welch, who resides on Maple
street, is luidly frightened, and says he will
not drink another drop. Burr McGowan, a
colored mail carrier, of Delaware, O.,
reived a postal card purporting to come from
the White Caps. On the eanl was the fol
lowing; "B. H. U. and D.—Death. No nogro
Democrats allowed to hold office. Choose ye,
Republicanism or death. Beware of White
Oil's. 1 teal men tell no tales." Mr. Mc
Gowan looks upon the matter as a joke, and
is not in the least worried.

on the day «et .quin for the election of pres
ident and vice president. The electors for
president and vice president shall be chosen
an tho first Tuesday in November.
Orders wore issued from tlie war depart

available infantry, cavalry and light ar
tillery of the army shall devote a jsirt of

It. is very generally understood that tho
direct tax bill, which caused a deadlock at
the lost Session of congress, will bo taken lip
for action in tlie house to-morrow. From
expression of opinion among tho memliers of
congress who were In tho opposition lost »es
dun It is not thought that they can now suc
cessfully resist its passage. Tlie general
opinion is, however, that if the bill is passed
it will bo vetoed by tho president. This was
the understanding at the lost session, and it
was to relievo tho president of the embarrass
ing effect of a veto message in tho teeth of
the presidential canqiaigii that the opposition
resorted to filibustering tartioa to defeat tho
till! It is nut now probable that the opposi
tion will resort to obstructive tactics to de
feat tho hil! It will probably bo content to
put itself on record as opposed to it, and rely
on thu president to veto it

rte Tnlnki Phil Daly Wi
Shot by Addle
New Yoke, Doc.
shooting uf Gambler Phil Daly in it demi
mondain', room at No. 4iMl Fourth
5.—A theory of tho
Monday afternoon, which is at least plausi
ble, was Mint of aotoctive who refused to
permit publication of his name.
"I think, " he said, "that Addle Stanton shot
the big fellow. 1 don't Iwlieve there
other man about the place when the shot was
fired. Phil U pretty fly, and he realized at
once that he would have to invent some
story that would satisfy his friends, and
he concocted the story of the badger game.
Had there )nvn two male murderers in the
caw» the fellows wouldn't have been such
suckers as to lot Phil get away alive with all
his wealth about him after once having shot
him. Neither would they have Ikh»u smart
enough Ut get away by the fire escape in tho
rear of the house. In their hurry to get
away they would have gone down the front
stairs. None of the neighlHirs admit that
any strange men got out of the yard through
their premise* 1 think the Stanton woman
shot Phil from jealousy or some other motive
that only site and Phil know."
Capt. Reilly, on the other hand, said that
the police knew who the men were who shot
Daly, but that Is all ho would say.
Superintendent Murray said that the bad
ger uud panel games are essentially the same,
and that Phil Daly was not tho victim of the
"badger" gain«*, for the sufficient reason that
the trap into which Daly fell wai nut u bad
ger trap.
The explanation of the disappearance of
the men who figured in the episode is that
they got out of a rear window into tho court
behind the house, and made their escape by
passing through tho entry of one of the ad
joining houses that front on Fourth avenue.
