Very Little News Can Be Had of the Strand ed Warships. Havana, Oct. 7.—Further details have been received of the loss of life and dam age caused by the heavy rains of Septem ber 30. Several localities in the Vuelto Aba jo, the great tobacco growing dis trict, were inundated. It is known that fifty-six persons were drowned and it is feared that the number may be increased when the remote hamlets are heard from. The railroads in the district are heavy losers. Many houses were destroyed and large fields of tobacco were completely ruined by the torrents of water that poured over them. There is much suffer ing in the district. The government has decided to extend aid to the victims of the.flood and mili tary pay will be allowed to each of the sufferers. Today several prominent men subscribed $10,310 for relief purposes. Reports from the scene of the wreck of the cruiser Cristobal Colon are still very meager. Acting Admiral Mas has gone to the scene of the gunboat Contramaes tro to ascertain whether the stranded warship can be got afloat. The crew of the Dutch steamer, who went ashore close to the place where the Cristobal Colon stranded, have arrived at Esperanza. the doctors approve of Scott’s Emulsion. For whom ? For men and women who are weak, when they should be strong; for babies and children who are thin, when they should be fat; for all who get no nourish ment from their food. Poor blood is starved blood. Con sumption and Scrofula never come without this starvation. And nothing is better for starved blood than cod-liver oil. Scott’s Emulsion is cod-liver oil with the fish-fat taste taken out. Two sixes, SO coots cod Si.00 JCOTT ft BOWNB, Blow Task TO ENTERTAIN THE EDITORS Mr, B.

The Twenty-Third Annual Convention in Ses sion at Augusta, Ga. Augusta, Ga., Oct. 7.—Owing to the pre liminary work necer-sary to enrolling the delegates and the securing of badges, paying of fees, etc., the twenty-third an nual convention of the Fire Engineers was not called to order until 12 o'clock at the Grand Opera. The delegates marched In behind the Augusta Young Men's Christian associa tion band. This is beyond doubt the largest convention which has ever been held by the association. President Benoit of Montreal called the convention to order, and Hon. J. C. C. Black, congressman from the Tenth dis trict. welcomed the delegates to the state In the place of Governor Atkinson, who was unavoidably detained. His speech was enthusiastically received, and rang with true southern cordiality and patriot ism. Mayor W. B. Young welcomed the dele gates on behalf of the city. City Attor ney M. P. Carroll gave a formal address of welcome. Chief M. S. Humphreys of Pittsburg replied to the addresses of welcome. Chief Devine of Salt Lake City, Utah, and Ex-Chief Hendricks, now mayor of New Haven, also made responses to the addresses of welcome. The convention then proceeded with the roll call, and the committee on creden tials was appointed, the convention ad journing until 10 o’clock tomorrow. In the afternoon the delegates were taken in charge by the citizens’ entertain ment committee and shown the cotton mills, in which industry Augusta has over $6,000,000 Invested; the Augusta Brewing company’s establishment, where a lunch was served, and the United States arsenal. Every prominent manufacturer of fire appliances and apparatus has a display on exhibit, which is attracting a good deal attention of the chiefs, who pro nounce the display the most complete ever given at any of the annual conven tions. Already the delegates are beginning to work for the location of the next conven tion, and the light will be a pretty warnil one. It now looks as If Salt Lake City or St. Paul will be the favored city of the western delegates, while Portsmouth, Me., Is leading the bidders of the east ern states. The weather is perfect and the air bracing, and the sun is shining as brightly as a day In June. Hirsch Dry Goods and Mil linery company are at their old stand the entire week and doing a rushing business there. DURANT’S triad. The Prisoner Is Delighted That. He Will Be Allowed to Talk. San Francisco, Oct. 7.—Durant was told today that Deuprey had said this morn ing that he would put him (Durant) on the stand this week. Durant said he was glad to hear It, though he had not yet been told so by his counsel. He said he was ready and willing to tell all he knew and had really been ready to tell from the first, but his lips had been sealed by his attorneys. He said he was sorry he would be restricted In what he would say, as he would like to explain every thing. Durant spoke with confidence. The approach of the time when he Is to go on the stand has apparently no effect on his nerves. As matters now stand the schedule of time in the now rapidly approaching time is as follows: On Thursday Deuprey will close the case for the defense, Friday and Monday wlll b«* occupied by District Attorney Barnes in rebut tal.Tuesday will be passed In rebuttal or anything that may come up, Wednesday will be taken up by As sistant District Attorney Pelxoto In his opening argument. Thursday will b“ set apart for Deuprey. with Friday and part of Monday for General Dickinson, who will make the cloalng effort for the de fense. Barnes will oacupy the balance of Monday and all of Tueday In closing for the prosecution, so that II Is confidently expected that Judge Murphy wt'l charge the Jury not later than the morning of the 23a Instanv EPISCOPALIANS AT WORK. A Proposition to Select a Life Time Presiding Bishop Brought About More Talk. No Vote Reached. Minneapolis, Minn., Oct. 7.—Invitations from Atlanta and Boston to hold the next triennial convention at those cities, re spectively, were presented to the house this afternoon, and were referred to the committee on location. The question of printing the bishop’s pastoral letter of 1894 In the Journal provoked considera ble discussion and parliamentary spar ring. Finally, on motion of Dr. Park of Pennsylvania, the whole matter was laid on the table by a vote of 200 to 117. The resolution presented by Rev. Dr. Fairbanks Saturday, providing that any dioceBe may set apart a portion of Its territory as a mission, was taken up again and discussed. Mr. Alsop of Long Island objected to the amendment on the ground that it would Invite dioceses to throw off their outlying and more troublesome districts and would greatly Increase the work of the mission board. Dean Gardner of Omaha took Issue with him, stating he did not believe such action would be taken except where it was necessary. A motion to lay on the table was lost, and a motion to refer to the mission committee was presented by Dr. McVIcker of New York, but before a vote was taken Dean Hoffman moved the order of the day, the report of the com mittee on revision. The house then went into committee of the whole. By a viva voce vote, which was suffi ciently large in the volume to restrain the minority from challenging a divis ion, the house of deputies of the Epis copal convention placed itself on record as being willing to surrender one of Its most valuable prerogatives and especially the only one which enabled it to hold the whip hand and in preventing the house of bishops from making of Itself, If It were so disposed, a literary oligarchy. But for the fact that it is now recognized that the present debate is but an Inter change of opinions between the repre sentatives of the various dioceses and that the old constitution Is likely to re main the foundation of the church, the refusal of the convention to reenact the clause putting into effect within three days all legislation concerning which the bishop had made no sign, might be fraught with grave consequences to the denomination. The clause from the new revision, after a debate in the commit tee, which it is said lasted a week, would: enable the house of bishops to approve Just as much of the legislation of the Junior body and to indefinitely kill by failure to act on all resolutions, reports and other matters, with which it may not he in accord. The result would be to make the lower or representative house little more than a spoke In the wheel of the church. A number of deputies, both lay and clerical, declare tonight that if the con sideration of the revision was completed at this meeting and the document went to the diocese the old clause would be re instated hy an overwhelming majority. This was the first victory for the revis ion committee after several days of de bate, but their jubilation was short lived. By an overwhelming majority the house refused to exclude domestic mis sionary bishops In the counting of a quo rum, the legal effect of which exclusion would be to make It possible for seven teen or eighteen bishops to form a ma jority even on questions of the gravest importance to the church which are un der consideration. Then came the cele brated section 3, providing for the elec tion of a primus, or head of the house of bishops, to hold office for life save in the event of voluntary resignation. Quickly the amendments piled up. One delegate favored a designation of "pres ident bishop," another "archbishop,” an other "presiding bishop,” and one more “primate.” The house was not in favor of any of the first three, nor did It kindly regard as a substitute that the bishops elect their own presiding officer and give him whatever designation they might see fit. A vote had not been reached on the "primate" proposition when the house adjourned. The bishops also devoted themselves this afternoon to the revision. Ship your cotton to us.

Everything in New York Is Combining Against Tammany Hall. New York, Oet. 7.—The county conven tions of republicans and the state de mocracy tonight nominated the following ticket, which was agreed upon early in the night by the conference committee of the chamber of commerce, good govern ment clubs, republicans and state dem ocrats: County clerk—Thomas L. Hamilton, re publican. Register—Thomas F. Keating, state democrat. Justices of the supreme court—Ernest Hall, republican; Charles C. Beaman, in dependent. and Meyer S. Isaacs, good government. «, Judges of the city court—Henry C. Bot ty and James W. Hawes, republicans; Daniel O'Connell, state democrat. The excise plank of the platform of both conventions are the same. It ree tes that Tammany is responsible for the present law, which was freely used by It for oppressing political opponents; Insists that every citizen is entitled to enjoy po litical freedom not In conflict with the moral and religious convictions of his fellow citizens; favors such modiflcat ons of existing laws as will prevent black mail, partiality and oppression and will enable the city to determine for itself whether the sale of food beverages and other necessaries shall be permitted on Sunday during church hours, and de clares that the legislature shall deter mine and enact such conditions In the excise law. The republican platform Indorses the nominations and the p’atform of the re publican state convention recently held at Saratoga and heartily affirms and echoes the demand for the nomination of Levi P. Morton as president of the United States. Later the state democracy accepted the fusion ticket nominated at the republi can county convention. There was much enthusiasm manifested. The platform adopted denounces Tammany Hall and promises to keep the fight against the organization. AT THEIR OLD STAND all this week ready to serve you as usual Hirsch Dry Goods and Millinery Co.

Mason, A meeting of the Birmingham bay w-.s held in the city court room yesterday morning to take action on the death of Hon. M. A. Mason. Mr. John P. Tillman presided and W. R. Terry acted as sec retary. Speeches in eulogy of the deceased were made by the following: Hon. O. W. Un derwood. Col. Sumter Lea, Capt W. C. Ward, John W. Tomlinson, J. C. Car michael. A poem upon his life and char acter, composed by Tax Assessor S. L. Robertson, was read by Capt. John M. Martin. The committee to draft resolutions suitable to the memory of the deceased then presented the following, which were adopted: Again we are called together to mourn the loss .of a member of the bar of Jef ferson county. On Saturday, the 2d day of September. 1895, In the prime of hu manhood death took from us our friend and brother lawyer, Michael A. Mason. Born in the state of Kentucky, he came to Alabama about ten years ago and en tered upon the practice of law in the courts of Jefferson county. Those qual ities of manly courage and sterling In tegrity, which he possessed to a marked degree, soon attracted a host of friends about him. They recognized his ability as a leader, and insisted upon his rep resenting the town of Avondale on the democratic county executive commit tee. In the fall of 1892 he was elected as chairman of the county campaign committee, and in that capacity his la bors were rewarded by this county giving the democratic presidential ticket the largest majority that has ever been given in an election. At the meeting of the county convention In the spring of 1891 he was unanimously chosen chairman of the democratic county executive com mittee. which position he held at the time of his death. The fact that he al ways possessed the confidence an respect of both political friends and foes bears testimony that he never stooped to ques tionable methods to obtain success. Your committee beg leave to recom mend the adoption of the following reso lutions: Resolved. That the bar of Birmingham have learned with deep sorrow of the death of Michael A. Mason, a member of this bar. Resolved,That as a lawyer he was pos sessed of an honest and accurate legal mind; that his character as a man, his fairness and courtesy to the courts be fore which he practiced, and his faith fulness to his clients, a<£ left ua as a monument that will ever tend to reflect dignity and respect upon oUr professiorf. Resolved, That as a political leader he was wise In council and fertile in re sources, and in all things a high-toned and chlvalrlc gentleman. Resolved, That the members of this bar, with whom he was so intimately as sociated, Extend to his bereaved family their condolence and sympathy. Resolved, That a copy of these resolu tions be sent to his family, and that cop ies be presented to the courts of this county with the request that they be spread upon the minutes thereof. O. W.

London, Oct. 7.—A dispatch to the Pall Mall Gazette from Antananarivo says that on September 25 a natinve mob made a raid upon the British cemetery at the Hova capital and broke open a number of coffins and mutilated the bodies con tained therein. The mob also made an attack upon the French observatory, which they destroyed, and for a time menaced the destruction of the house of the French residents. The two armies are now in sight of the capital and the fight Incident to their skirmishes can be plainly heard. Native soldiers are flock ing into town and reinforcements are be ing sent to the front. A number of prom inent Hovas have left the city upon what is supposed to be a diplomatic mission, and the general supposition is that their object is to treat with the representa tives with a view of arranging a cessa tion of hostilities.
