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
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
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

ernor Bullock of Georgia, whose face

ary board was called to order promptly
at 8 o'clock tonight. The pending busi

ops be required to choose a bishop of

Four Men Killed.
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.

District Attorney Barnes today as yes

rebuttal testimony of a very Important,
and, in one case, sensational nature and

which in his direct examination he partly

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
“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.

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.

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
