Scott & Bowks, Chemists, New York, 50c. end $1.00 / THE EPISCOPAL CONVENTION* Disturbed by Bishop Neely’s Attack on the Management of Affairs in Alaska. . Much Work Done. Minneapolis, Oct. 11.—The shadow of the disturbed spirit brought into the mis sionary meeting last night enveloped the Episcopal bouse of deputies today. Little else was talked of prior to the morning assembling and after the re cesses at noon and in the evening. The bitter attack of Bishop Neely on the ad ministration of church affairs In Alaska, his showing of the fact that for an expen diture of $12,000 per annum for years j«ast there was practically nothing to sho&,‘ his insinuations that there was something behind the latest movement to elect a bishop of Alaska, his outspoken denunciation by name of the present Alaskan missionaries taken in connection wun tne trenchant and heated retor.s of bisnops, pr.esis anu secular aelegaLs, some ot wnom were forced to adroit the suostantlal accuracy ot the facts suu milled by the venerable bisnop, but dep recates tneir exposure to tne public eye, all combined to create an episode unpre cedented in the general conventions of the last century, the effects of which in various executive and other branches of the church will be felt for years to come. The deputies generally, even, those dis posed to side with the bishop, deplored the episode, and the feeling was made manliest immediately after the morn ing prayer through a resolution submit ted by George C. Thomas of Philadelphia, providing that the board of missions con tinue on the Alaskan question with closed doors. This was lost. The bishop house spent the day upon the revised constitution. A resolution was submitted calling for the full report of the committee on revision Monday, which brought the statement from Dean Hoffman, the spokesman for the com mittee on the floor, that the body did not expect to have a constitution adopted at this convention, A resolution providing for final adjournment on October 18 was referred to the proper committee of the whole. The house then proceeded to give a quietus to Dr. Rennets pending motion that the dioceses be legally represented in future conventions by persons not re siding within such diocesan jurisdiction. An hour was wasted on technical and on unnecessary amendments concerning the manner of choosing deputies, but all were defeated, and article 1 to section 5 in clusive were disposed of. On section 0. which provides that one clerical and one lay delegate chosen by each missionary district shall have seats in the house without the right to vote, Ex-Governor Price of New Mexico protested that this took away from the delegates In that category all the privileges which they had enjoyed for fifteen years. There was more debate, but finally the house did the fair thing by giving the missionary delegates all the rights of all other del egates when a vote by dioceses was taken. After being amended by Hill Burgwin of Pittsburg section 1 of the article was adopted, providing that future conven tions shall assemble on the first Wednes day of every October of every third year at a place to be fixed by the preceding convention, each convention, however, being gtven the .right in the exercise of its discretion to fix a different time than that of the constitution. Jt was then announced that the committee would proceed to vote clause by clause on the portion of the constitution sent down by the house of bishops, and thus prepare a message to be returned in the form of concurrence or non-concurrence, the sec retary called the roll on the first section, the only amendment being the change of ■'synod” to “convention.” The clerical vote was unanimous, with the exception of two dioceses, while of the laymen only California voted no. The second section passed as It came from the bishops, and the clause providing that the presiding officer of the house of bishops shall be senior In service was again put through by a large majority. After this an addi tional vote was given to the unfortunate word "primate,” and the question of rights to be given delegates from mis sionary Jurisdiction came for the second time within an hour. Many of the dele gates were visibly disgusted with this state of affairs, but under, the rules, which provide for consideration of clause by clause of the bishops revision, there was no help for it. Another effort was made to give the missionary delegates the right to have their votes counted In ballots by dioceses, but It was defeated. Further consideration of the bishops’ revision was referred until Monday. The upper house sent down the report of the committee of conference concern ing the next place of holding the con vention, and recommending that Wash ington, D. C., be selected. The house concurred by unanimous vote, and then adjourned. The bishops today followed the ex ample of the lower house by laying on the table the solemn declaration of faith, which served as a preface to the re vised constitution. In opposition to the report of a special committee it was decided to elect a second bishop for Ja pan, with the designation of bishop of Kyolo. it was developed today that Ex-Oov ernor Bullock of Georgia, whose face has been missed from fhe convention for several days, is seriously ill at his rooms at the West hotel. His wife, assisted by a trained nurse, is in attendance on him. The adjourned meeting of the mission ary board was called to order promptly at 8 o'clock tonight. The pending busi ness was the resolution of Bishop Gil bert of Minnesota that the house of bish ops be required to choose a bishop of Alaska. After discussion that consumed the entire night session the resolution was adopted by a rising vote—ayes 161, noes 37. Adjourned.

Cleveland, O., Oct. 11.—Four men were killed and several others were probably fatally injured as the result of an acci dent at the Cleveland Rolling mills at 9 o’clock tonight. The dead: Charles Wakefield, Vett Kesarth, Anton Gorman, middle aged man, not identified. The furnaces were carrying heavy fires and the casting department was working a full force. Without warning, and in a manner wholly unexpected and unex plainable the casting house, the largest building of the plant, collapsed, burying many of Its occupants In the debris. As quickly as possible relief came to the Imprisoned men, and when all were res cued It was found that three were dead and eight badly Injured. One of the Injured men died soon after being removed. Of the killed Charles Wakefield was cooked by the molten metal. The injured were taken to hospitals and none of them can give their names. A Bank in Trouble. Omahr, Neb., Oct. 11.—The Citizens' bank a small concern, with $50,000 capi ta), has passed Into the hands of the state banking board. The trouble arose through bad loans, which the borrowers have been renewing until the bank could not carry them any longer. It Is expected that the bank will pass Into a receiver’s hands In three or four days. The state board says that every dollar of liability will be paid In full. DURANT’S TRIAL, Attorney Barnes Is Making it Pretty Warm far Him, But He >ls Hard to Trip Lip. San Francisco, Oct. U.—Theodore Du rant, while losing none of his coolness and self-possession and without being made to contradict himself in any way, did not fare well In his struggle w.th District Attorney Barnes today as yes terday. Baines had reserved his most telling points for the close and he brought them with good effect. There were In his In terogations today broad intimations of rebuttal testimony of a very Important, and, in one case, sensational nature and he expects nekt week to complete the net which in his direct examination he partly wove around the accused man. When proceedings opened this morning Durant wus cuiuronied with statements alleged to have oeen made to two report ers, .n wmcn he saiu tout on the aiter noon of tne murder ne had arrived at tne cnurcn between 4 ana 4;.h> o clock, tie admitted that ne had made statements to the reporters, but said he had been mlsundeistood. , 'r'ne time reterred to was his trip from the college to the church and not his arrival at tne church. He said he had stated the itipe he left col lege to be between 4 and 4:40 o’clock. When he came down from the space above the ceiling to the Sunday school room, where George R. King, the organ ist, was playing, Durant said he looked through the glass In the door and saw King before stepping through the door way. When it was called to his atten tion that the glass was stained he insist ed that he could se the outline of King's form through the color space In it. King had testllled that he was the first to speak at that meeting, and that Durant walked to the middle of the room before replying. This Durant denied. He said If King spoke first he did not hear him, but he himself opened the conversation. Durant's college note book Is one with an adjustable cover and he was asked If he had not made It that way to enable him to insert lectures. He said that he had not, and added that he had used the cover for more than a year. He made the remarkable statement that he had, on the day of his arrest, forgotten that he had notes of Dr. Cheney’s lecture on the afternoon of April 3, though he re membered it up to the time of his ar rest and It again occurred to him three days later. The sensation of the day was produced when Durant was asked If he had not, on December 22 of last month, shown to Miss Carrie Cunningham, a reporter, an envelope containing a statement not to be opened except in the event of his con viction. He denied having done so. Barnes then asked him: "Did you on the 5th of October, In cell No. 9 of the county pall, In a conversation with Miss tunmnKnam Bay wnen you were at wont on the sunbumers you heard a noise and followed up to the belfry and saw the dead body of Blanche Damont on the sec ond landing:, and did you say that she was murdered on the second landing of the belfry?" “There was a story brought to me by Miss Cunningham," said Durant, "which, like the sweet pea girl story, purported to be a rumor which she hud heard about town to the effect that X heard a noise while fixing the gas and that I followed the noise to the landing above to see what It was and discovered what you make reference to. I neither affirmed nor denied It. She said she would say nothing about this until It could be proven.” “Now,” added Durant dramatically, “I ask for the proof to come forward.” This concluded Durant’s cross-exam ination. The case went over till Tuesday. FIRE! FIRE! Bidders wanted for dam aged millinery stock in bulk. MISS McCROSSIN, 10-ll-2t 1928 2d avenue. MINERS AND OPERATORS. Agree Upon Rates for the Present—A Fight Against Commissaries. Pittsburg, Pa., Oct. 11.—In the conven tion of coal miners and operators yes terday the committee appointed to se cure a uniformity of rates reported back to the convention that the rates agreed upon on August 2 should remain in force until December 31, namely, 64 cents, where wages are paid In cash and 69 where the company stores exist. The committee further decided that all com pany stores shall be abolished after Jan uary 1, 1896. The report was adopted by the convention. Another Joint conven tion of operators and miners will be held December 3 to agree upon mining rates for 1896. If at this convention the New York Cleveland Gas Coal company and other srefuse to pay the rates agreed upon the miners and operators of the Pittsburg district will agree that the price paid by the New York and Cleve land Gas Coal company shall be the dis trict price and shall so determine. Cuban War News. Havana, Oct. 5, via Tampa, Fla., Oct. 11.—Among the recent victims of yellow fever Is Manuel Delgado, a son of the late Admiral Delgado y Parejo, who was lost with the cruiser Sanches Borcaize legen. Delgado, Jr., who was quite young, had accompanied his father from Europe to Cuba, not wishing to be sepa rated from him. He witnessed the re covery of his father’s body near the Moro. The reports state tnat tne many de tachments on outposts due are having many unimportant skirmishes with the enemy. The studied policy of the insur gents seems to be the avoidance of com ing to close quarters. In localities un protected by troopB they cut telegraph and telephone wires and burn bridges. A Red Cross society, which will be a branch of the famous international or ganisation of that name, will be formed in Havana, with the bishop of Havana as its first patron. Capt.-Oen.

A*ez C. Lanier Dead. Madison, Ind.. Oct. 11.—Alex C. Lanier, member of the banking firm of Winslow, Lanier, etc., of New York, died this afternoon, aged 75. Count Tolstoi, Who is in closer sympathy with hu manity, its needs and its sufferings, than any man who is alive today,says: "Go through a crowd of people, preferably city people, examine their tired, anxious, wasted faces; remember your life and the Uvea of those whom you have known intimately; recall the many sad cases of sickness and sorrow of which you have heard, am^ask yourself the reason of all this suf fering and despair. And you-will see, however strange It may ap pear, that the cause of nine tenths of human misers- is some chronic weakness or disease, that this suffering is useless, that.lt could be avoided, and that the majority of people whose lives are darkened by 111 health might be strong, vigorous and happy.” Coupled with the words of this grand man is the great truth that four-fifths of all diseases arise from kidney, liver or bladder complaints. Can you not readily see, then, why that magnificent remedy, Warner’s Safe Cure, is so popular? It is be cause it prevents these troubles' or 'cures them if taken in time. If you doubt this ask any educated, well-in formed doctor, druggist or profes sional man. PERSONAL. D. C. McIntosh of Montgomery is in th<^ city. Mrs. E.GIllmon of Selma is at the Flor ence. Mr. W.

Speaking of Birmingham, it says: “Birmingham, Alw, the Magic City, a great commercial metropolis, is in the center of a very populous district, and is too well known to need much men tion, Its industries too varied and nu merous to describe herein. It is in the center of a rich coal and iron district, end a formidable competitor of Pittsburg as a market for pig iron. "Birmingham is thoroughly lighted by electricity, has a fine system of electric and dummy car service, with frequent and convenient schedules to all the im portant suburban towns. Its fine ho tels, immense wholesale stores, hand some public buildings,rank probably with those of much larger and older cities. Five great railroad systems touching here afford complete transportation facil ities for all classes of traffic.” Children Cry for Pitcher's Castoria. White Parmer* Pooled. Central City, W.
