MINISTERS FIND THEKEY Get What They Want at Last and Resolve T0 TIGHT HARD TOR IT AT DOVER The Misst. slppi Bill, Which Is Exactly Like an Old Delaware Law, Is Just What They Wanted—Provides That, Instead of Twelve or TwentT-fonr Signers, Liquor Applicant Mast Get Majority of Voters of Bis District. The Wilmington clergy in the Minis terial Union of this city at last came to an agreement about wbat they ebonld line of temperance reform this afternoon. They da elded to straggle before the Leglsla ture for the passage of a bill similar to the Misslppi law and which is identical with an old Delawate law It seems that after the 'deoision of the Court of Errors and Appeals in 1847 against a general local option move ment, powerful presBure was brought to bear npon the candidates for Legislation honors by the people favoring temporary reform and, in coDs.quence, the Legislature of 184Ö passed a law throwing upon each nncor porated borough, town and city the (matter of issuing licenses and the members of said corporation or a major ity of same, must declare themselves in favor of each license before it conld be granted. As Eev. S B Messer stated in an ad dress to the nnion, "It's simply a le ensetment of au old and wise Delaware and we think we have what we want." Soon after the meeting opened at 11 o'oioek to day in First, Presbyterian Church, the temperance discussion was opened by the reading of several notes addressed to the unlou. Communications were received from Miss M. 8. Hilles, president of the State Women'B Ghiistian Temperance Union, and Mrs. J. Mary M. Wol eott, of Dover, in relation to the Tepeal of the "bottle law," recommending that the minister's vote their hearty support. This was done and Revs John France and W. P Swartz were appointed a committee from the nnion to interview Miss Hilles. Then Mr. Hanna submitted before the meeting for its adoption two bills, one of which is legislature of Pennsylvania, and the other law of Mississipp 1 . In the Mississippi law aliquor.lleenES appli cant must get a majority of the taxpayers to sign for him. In the Pennsylvania Jaw, a jority of the taxpayers signing • remonstrance, may knoo k hlm ont. Mr. Warner Speak, tor the Daymen, A. D. Warner was then', invited to ad dress the nnion He said in part: "StateiCentral Committee 1 b a' present doing nothing, because we have concluded that there is no local option bill that we can formulate which we can hope to have passed. A bill or a law that wonld com pel a saloon-keeper to secure, npon applying for hla license, a majority of all the voters of his district,such a law I say, would not only give ns local option hat absolute prohibition. "An unanimous beech in this state In 1817 made it Impossible for the Legislature to pass laws lestriot lng to a vote of the people whether they should have general prohi bition or license. But the Mississippi hill, for which we have applied and will aoon have in band, is jnst about what we waut, from the fact that it makes it necessary for the saloon keeper, instead of securing twelve or twenty four signers, to get a majority of the taxpayers of his district, every taxpayer being a member of the town or borough corpo ration. " Strong Talk for the Mississippi Bill. Rev. W. P. Swartz said: "The provision* of the Mississippi bill would apply all over the state and, while it might not give us prohibition in many of the wards of the city, it would so reduce and restrict that it wonld be a God-send. If we eonld unite and sup port the Mississippi bill it would be thor onghiy constitutional. It would put the burden upon the applicant, who would have to get hie majority. Unless the Pennsylvania bill, which made it neces sary for the enemies of the saloon to get the signers " T1 e following was adopted : "Resolved, That the secretary be re quested to Inform the State Centra) Committee appointed at the Looal Option Convention, through its chairman, Mr Job H. Jackson, that the Ministerial Union has decided to support the temperance bill with the feaiures of the Mississippi law now being brought to the attention of the Legislature, and the Union would be glad if the committee wouid further the setae measure " After hearing Mrs Charlton Edholn on her work in this city, this resolution was adopted: • «.solved, that the Ministerial Union has listened with deep interest to the address of Mrs. Edholim on "Social Purity" and that we record and ao knowledge onr obligertion to God and humanity in this behalf."

Salem, or.. Feb. 25 .—The struggle for the election of a successor to J. N. Dolph In the United States senate, which has beeu carried on in the legislature for 8a | days, came to a close by the election of ' General W. C. McBride, ex-secretary of State. The contest has beeu a bitter one from beginning to end, and up to 80 min utes before the hour set for final adjourn ment It looked as though there would be a deadlock. Senator Dolph held 37 votes solid, enough to defeat au election, up to the time when a recess was taken for five min utes. The excitement was growing in tense, and It was evident that if Oregon was to have two senators in the next sen ate something must bo done at once, as midnight, the hour set for final adjourn ment, was rapidly approaching. When the joint assembly was called to order again, tho first few name# called showed a change In the vote, hut when the name of Clooton, a strong Dolph man, was reached he arose, and immediately the vast assemblage became silent. It was evident some action had been decided on by the Dolph men. He spoke for a couple of minutes, and when ho mentioned the name of McBride the house broke into a wild hurrah. Ho then recorded his vote for McBride. Each succeeding Republican whose name was called voted for McBride, and when he had received 45 votes—the number nec essary to a choice—amid great cheering a motion was made to have all the Repub lican vvtes recorded for McBride, and it was carried with a rush. McBride there foro received 72 votes, being that of every Republican in the legislature. Mr. Mc Bride was in no sense a candidate for the office, though his name hud been mention ed in connection with the senatorship. a of or of Surprise at Washington. Washington, Feb. 25.—The news of the election of George W. McBride as United States senator from Oregon was a great surprise to the congressional delegation from Oregon. Mr. McBride, though well known in his state, had not boen in any way mentioned for senator, and it. was supposed besides that bis health would not permit him to lie a candidate for any office. He was in this city ubout a month ago on his way back to Oregon from New York, where ho had undergone a surgical opera tion. In speaking of the matter today, Repre sentative Hermann of Oregon said: "I have known Senator McBride intimately for years. He was a competitor of mine in 1884 before the Republican convention for tlie nomination to congress. Before that ho was a member of the state legisla ture and speaker of the house of represent atives. In 1887 ho was elected secretary of state and re-elected in 1891, serving al together eight years. His term has just closed. He has suffered so from inflamma tory rheumatism that he hud practically withdrawn from politics and was not elect ed to any office at the end of his term. "He is about 47 years of age and rather tall. He is of a very amiable disposition, of refined appearance and is liked by all who know him." He Believe« In Financial Keform. Portland, Or., Feb. 25.—United State* Senator Elect George W. McBride was not prepared to outline ilia views at length on the money question, but in answer to a question he said, "It is evident there 1* need of a reform in tho financial system of the country, and it is my belief that such reform should proceed on the lines of the last national Republican platform."

"In my opinion a better situation can not be obtained I also believe that a building suitable for our purposes, a credit to tbe city of Wilmington, and an honor to the association, can be built complete for $50,000 From the location I believe also it would be a safe aud pay lng investment, having several stores and lawyer's offices to rent, and a large lecture hall, which is now in demand several nights in the week Rev S B Meeser spoke briefly and Grace quartette sang as an offi tory "Ba boid !
