THE DuPONT TRIALS RECALLED. Carvalho, Who Helped to Convict the Clerk* and Glbboua, Hun Done Auotlier Dig 1'lcce of Work. Asa G Gurney, cashier of the monev order division of the Americau Express Agency, at New Orleans, has been de tected in the theft of (22 500 sent from New York last October. The story is of local interest because the guilt of Gurney wan established by David N. Carviiibo, who played such a prominent part in the trial and conviction of the Clarks and William J. Gibbons, the D Font barn burners and conspirators, who are now doing time in New Castle jail. It will tie remembered that a threaten ing letter was sent to the DnPnnts was put iu the hands of the Wilkiusou Detective Agency, which, in turn, ob tained specimens of the writing of Jue Clark, and took them to Carvalho, the expert. He photographed and enlarged the letter and specimens, put them side by side on canvasi and convinced* the jury, beyond a doubt, that Joe Claiti nad written the letter, on the stand here for several hours, and counsel for the defense subjected him to a rigid croes-examiuatlon. Tbe express package in question, taiuiug (:W,fiOO, left New York October It reached New Orleans the evening of October 14. Gurney, in his official capacity, tore open the envelope in the presence of another officer of the com pauy, opened the safe, glanced at the couten's, and remarked : "This package is In — bad order." g envelope in the o ce eafe. left alone in the office: arrived there late the following morning, and when the money was counted the loss was discovered. Then began a long, searching investi gation by the express company. In despair, the officials called in Mr. Carvalho, an expert In bandwiitlug, to solve the mystery, which a horde of de tectives had failed to do. He directed all his attention npon tbe envelope con taining the safe key, and which had evi dently been opened and resealed by tbe thief. Upon the middle seal was fouud the faint impress of a thumb nail. Here was what proved the vital clue on a hitherto untried line. The expert obtaiued, w ithout explaining his purpose, a wax impress of the thumb uail of each express official who bandied the envelope on the eventful trip These were en larged by photographing, and then com pared with that on the envelepe seal. One and ouly one corresponded entirely with it. That was the impress of tba th.imb uail of Asa G. Gurney. This was apparently proof enough, but others were multiplied from It. In four distinct ways the robbery was fixed upon Gurney from this envelope, with its wax seals, and tbe convictiou of the thief, who was hitherto one of the com pany's most trusted employes, is a fore gone conclusion.

CITY NEWS IN BRIEF. for de will and pre on will to »t the REV. HANNA'S FAREWELL Preached His Last Sermon to a Crowded House. GENERAL SORROW rXPRESoED lly tho People ut tho I.eavlng of Tlielr Itoloveil Pastor—Women nntt Men Sniffed and Suulfed and I aetl Their Handkerchiefs lodustrlooaly - Much Handshaking. Before 6 o'clock laat night people from all parts of the city began to wend their ways toward Asbury Church By 6.30 a seat was at a premium, and at, 7 o'clock hundreds of people were turned away. The church was crowded. All the chairs that could be obtaiued were used, and people eveu sat ou the pulpit steps aud around the altar The side aisles were lined with people standing. Everybody wanted to hear Rev. John D. C. Ilanna preach his last sermon as pastor of old Asbtirv. At 7 o'clock Mr. Hanna opened tbe service by reading the hymn, "To AH That Dwell Below the Skies." After a number of announce ments for the ensuing week, he ad ministered the rite of baptism to two persons, a man aud a woman. Mr. Hanna took his sermon from Paul's epistle to the Tbessaloniaus, "Pray for us that we may be delivered from un roaEouable men." He said, in part: "This was the prayer of one of the greatest preachers and writers—Paul, who found people who made proper demands upon his services aud attentions, others who were unrea sonable in their expectations and de mands. aud who prayed that he might be delivered from unreasonable men. Not That Sott of Prayer to Make. "I have no praybr of this character to make when 1 speak in regard to my pastorate among my people. "There is no more responsible position than that of the Christian minister; there are moral matters which devolve upon him; in every circumstance must the miuistvr be tho savior of his com munity. There are always people who v ill be saved through his instrumental ity, or, if his ability fce not very great, there will be Borne persons who, other wise, might be saved. "It is a most fearful culling. If be is earnest he will save some; if careless, or if he would have au easy time, there wilt be some that will turn their backs upon God, that a faithful minister iu his place would have saved. That minister must stand before God and give au ac count of his stewardship. "I was reading some time ago of a man who had been seriously wounded The wound was healing nicely but on« day it began to bleed, and it was found that an irtery was broken. The nurse caught tho ends betweeu his lingers and held them until the doctor urr.ved He said that if a larger- artery had broken the wounded man would have been hurried iustantly to another world. He dressed th* wound and left. But he had scarcely turned his back wl.cn another artery hurst. Again the faithful nurse stopped the flow °t blood. The physician was summoned again and said that when the nurse removed his fingers the man would die, that no skill could save him That nurse he,d tile artery for three hours, until the muscles of his fingers wtre strained and grew numb, 80 88 to Rive the doomtd man time to complete all bis earthly bus iness. At last humau endurance was at an end. and in three minutes after the nurse removed his fingers, the wounded man was a corpse. If we held such a position it would alarm us, but in a cei tain sense yon hold such a position. By exerting your influence over a man, you may be the means of saving him By removing your fingers ho may go out into abject darkness and misery. "Theteare demands made upon Chris tian ministers. There are demands you will make upon your minister when he comes to you. He will not be above criticism. Being the leader aud spiritual leader, there are great things demanded of him which he must perform. You have a right to demand several things Every congregation has aright to demand in dustry. I kuow of no position where a mutt can be more careless, because people •are Vi ry kind, very forbearing, and a great many sermons »hat are imperfect, people speak kindly of. But the church has the right to demand that he be an industrious unin. No success can be achieved except by persevering iuaustry Why should not a Christian minister be industrious? When Demosthenes desired to become a public speaker he cured his defective speech by talking w.th his mouth full of pebbles, so that when they were taken out he could speak smoothly The Christian minister ought to give at least ten hours a day to the church lie serves The people have the right to de maud an industrious minister. "Another thing, he most be piotiä The minister o ust have clean bauds, a pure heart and no stain upon his con science and he should be a meek mau in character." • The worid stands and looks at Christian people, looking for faults The world has a right to do so. The Chris tiau minister must be an earnest mau, a utau that, can impress a fact upon the minds o( th „ peo , l e to win soul?. Industry, piety, eaiuestuess-these are just deuitudti of tbe minister Hut there are unreasonable demands agaiust Which I would warn this congregation » D- „, j Ko* P*ul prayed to be a unreasonable people, bave found such in this church, bat I ftltid it every where to tome extent. There 1 h, cougregatlon that wants the minister to be a mouth-piece. IT he speaks for them he is just the mau for them. He must reflect thslr views for them as If by a looking glass, and they *»u.t hear smooth things from hU Ups tn regard to them. If be represents their views he is all right. "But the minister must preach the truth, the whole trntb, and nothing but the truth, as he sees it on bis knees and in hi, study ***** I bave en ou , . , , J°y« d "Of* among you I remember the first time 1 came among you.

After the choir sang "God Be With You Till We Meet Again," and the benediction was pronounced, everybody crowded a'outid the altar to say good bye to one of tbe most successful and popular ministers that ever preached at Asbury. can run fester, lift, more 1 1 PREACHERS AT SALISBURY.
