THE BLUE AND GRAY.
A Move Put on Foot by Prominent Men for a
Monster Parade in 1896 in the City
of New York.
New York, Dec. 5.—In answer to a call
Issued December 2 Mayor Strong, Chaun
cey Depew, Judge Martin, Rev. T. Mac
- Mahon, ReW G. Dickinson, Charles A.
| Dana,John G. Garnet and about fifty oth
er well-knowh New Yorkers met In the
governor’s room at the city hall and or
ganized for a reunion and parade of the
veterans of the civil war, both the blue
and the gray, in the streets of Now York
on July 4, 1896. It will bring together
those who are left of the men and the
leaders who took part in the bitter
struggle” and united for the first time
in the blue and the gray. Charles A.
Dana was elected temporary chairman,
after which letters were read from the
following persons by Col. John Garnet:
George A. Williams, editor; P. Barker,
John R. Fellows, Frank R. Lawrence, C.
B. Rose, Francis B. Thurber, John De
witt Warner, Sam Sloane, J. P. Morgan,
John H. Starin, Frank Tilford, Isadore
Straus, Dr. Page, W. J. Clark, Gen. How
ard Carroll, Judge Holland, C. B. Alex
ander, J. D. Rockefeller, H. M. Flagler,
C. L. Tiffany, A. M. Palmer, Louis Stern,
W B. Cutting, Austin Corbin, Morris K.
Jessup, E. T. Gerry, General Butterfield
and others.
Only one refused to act on the com
mittee to further the idea. That was
Mr. Gerry. He gave no reason. It was
presumably on account of the recent
death in his family.
Many of the letters spoke enthusiasti
cally of the project and patriotic senti
ment was conlained in every one of them.
Colonel Garnett put in nomination Im
permanent chairman the originator and
champion of the idea—Charles A. Dana.
He was unanimously elected and thanked
the meeting for the honor. He said: ’’I
thank you most heartily for the honor
you confer upon me. I am too glad to
eerve and do what I can for the delight
ful and admirable undertaking. I would
ask, however, that you appoint an asso
ciate chairman, who can act for me when
I am called to other duties.”
Colonel Garnett was elected permanent
eecretary.
It was then moved by General Carroll
that an executive committee be appoint
ed. The motion was adopted, and an
other for the appointment of a sub-com
mittee was carried out. They will be
eelected in a day or so and wilt consist
Jn part of those who were present at to
day’s meeting and those who expressed
u desire to serve on the committee by let
ter. The meeting then adjourned subject
to the call of the chair.

BALLOTING FOR A BISHOP.
Another Convention Will Be Necessary to
Secure an Election.
Washington, Dec. 5.—The Washington
Episcopal diocesan convention today
took three unsuccessful ballots for bish
op, the failure being due to the operation
of the two-thirds rule, in' vogue in the
diocese of Maryland and Delaware,
which has been abandoned in the sixty
other dioceses of the church, and which
the new Washington diocese threw over
for future convehtions after a spirited
contest this evening while the ballots for
bishops were being counted by the de
cisive vote of 45 clergymen and 41 laymen
agatnst 15 clergymen and 20 laymen. This
majority rule, when put in operation at
a succeeding convention, will speedily
result in an election. In the ballots for
a bishop, voting being limited to clergy
men, the high church element controlled
twenty-six votes out of the total sixty
one—42 being necessary to a choice. On
the first ballot 18 were given to Rev.
Morgan Dlx of New York city, G to Rev.
John S. Lindsay of Boston, 1 to Rev. W.
p, Huntington of New York, the latter’s
name being at once withdrawn, as Dr.
Huntington has forbidden its use.
On the second ballot 21 of the high
church votes went to Dlx and 4 to Lind
say, Dr. Greer’s remaining 1 being trans
ferred to Dr. Lindsay, and on the third
ballot Dr. Dlx’s vote was unchanged.
Rev. Dr. McKim of Washington on the
next ballots received respectively 18, 18
arid 19 votes; Rev. Alex Mackay Smith
of Washington 8, 11, 9, and the others
scattering.
It Is the general impression of the
members of the convention that the rou
tine of organization will be completed to
morrow and that another convention will
be shortly called to elect a bishop under
the majority rule, when Dr. McKim will
probably be chosen on the first ballot.

THE TEACHERS’ INSTITUTE.
“How to Arouse Public Interest" Discussed at
Last Night's Session—It Should Radiate
From the Teacher, Says Dr. Palmer.
By 8 o’clock last night the commodious
assembly hall of the Woodlawn school
building was well filled with citizens and
teachers In attendance upon the meeting
of the Jefferson County Teachers’ In
stitute.
The meeting was called to order by thei
president. Prof. F. M. Roof, and Dr. Sol
omon Palmer of the East Lake Athe
neum opened the meeting with prayer.
Addresses of welcome were delivered
by Superintendent J. M. Dewberry and
Hon. J. T. Wood, mayor of Woodlawn.
The speakers represented the schools of
the town as being in a flourishing con
dition, the attendance having reached
230. The teachers and visitors were ac
corded a hearty welcome to the town and
to the homes of the people.
The addresses of welcome were re
sponded to by Professors Waldrop and
Burriss and County Superintendent I.
W. McAdory.
After the enrollment of members and
the reading of the minutes of the pre
vious meeting, a committee on resolu
tions was appointed consisting of Messrs.
Ellis, Allgood and Hogan.
The subject for the evening, viz: “How
May the Interest of the Community Be
Aroused In the School,” was called up.
In the absence of Prof. J. M. Fountain,
who was to open the discussion, Dr. Sol
omon Palmer responded to the call of
the president. Dr. Palmer claimed that
the teacher was the center from which
interest should radiate. He should be a
true missionary: unselfish and thor
oughly consecrated. Such a teacher
would create an interest In the commu
nity. _
Prof. S. A. Ellis thought this an im
portant subject and gave some of h1s
personal experience In attempting to
solve this vexed question. He suggested
the calling together of the community
by special exercises In the school. He
also stated that he had found literary
societies and circulating libraries valu
able aids. Above all things, he said the
teacher must be social and get ac
quainted with and visit his patrons.
Professors Allgood and H. P. Burriss
followed, adding valuable suggestions.
At this point Professor Fountain ar
rived and took the floor. He said that
the teacher was responsible for the edu
cational spirit in the community.
Dr. J. H. Phillips took issue with Pro
fessor Fountain upon this point, claim
ing that the schools had been run long
enough by and for the teachers, and that
it was time for the people to come for
ward and take a hand In educational
matters. He acknowledged that the
teacher had much to do with shaping
and leading public sentiment. The teach
er should be a missionary. All honor to
the man or woman who goes into the be
nighted regions of the earth, but equal
honor is due to the teacher who goes
into the dark corners of some of our
own counties.
Al lilt? LUUUtUniUll UL LIllO UIBl II3BIUII
the audience was treated to a recitation
by Miss Idene Keys. Miss Keys thor
oughly captured her audience by her
clever impersonation of the "bad girl,”
and was compelled to respond to an en
core.
After music and the assignment of
homes to the visiting teachers, the meet
ing adjourned to meet again this morn
ing at 9 o'clock.
The subjects for discussion today are
"Mental Arithmetic.” “Best Method of
Grading Country Schools,” “How to
Teach Reading,” Plarf'for Teaching Eng
lish to Children Under 12 Years of Age,”
“Attention," “Teachers' Lyceum.'' and
tonight Dr. J. H. Phillips will discuss
"The Work of the Committee of Twelve.”

A NEW ORGANIZATION,
"The Business and Laboring Men’s League”
Organized Last Night—The Commissary
Check System Must Go.
Quite a number of prominent business
and laboring men met in the office of the
State Loan and Trust company at 8
o’clock last night for the purpose of
perfecting a permanent organization on
the following declaration of principles:
An organization called into existence
by the consciousness of necessities which
appeal to every sense of right and jus
tice for relief against certain existing
evilB which strike at the very vitals of
the development and prosperous growtli
of this district.
On motion Col, F. B. Blackburn was
called to the chair and F. W. Dixon re
quested to act as secretary.
On motion the chair appointed a com
mittee. consisting of H. L. Underwood.
George Harris, A. O. Lane and F. W.
Dixon, on by-laws and permanent organ
ization.
The committee reported as permanent
officers F. B. Blackburn, president, and
Oliver Chalifoux, secretary and treas
urer.
The office of vice-president to be filled
at the next meeting.
The committee suggested that the or
ganization be known as the Business
and Laboring Men's league, which was
adopted.
By request the committee was granted
further time to prepare more thoroughly
the rules and by-laws governing the
league.
Considerable interest was manifested
in the meeting, and topics discussed look
ing towards the building up of Birming
ham as a whole and not In part, and to
see that laws are enacted doing away
with the check systetn. as now practiced
by the commissaries of this district.
The league will be strictly non-politi
cal and no rran who is a candidate for
any office whatever will be eligible to
membership.
This combined effort on the part of the
business and laboring men of the Bir
mingham district,whose interests are the
most seriously effected, can but result
in much good, and it is to be hoped that
every man who has the best interest of
the entire people at heart will become an
active member.
Now that the ball Is started let no
efforts be spared to release the chains
of depression and the unfair practice of
forcing men to become slaves Instead of
free men.
A Just Verdict.
Tallahassee, Fla.. Deo. 5.—After four
days’ trial before Judge Mahone in the
circuit court here, the case of Allen of
Key West vs. George Lewis, a banker of
this place, was concluded today, the
Jury giving Allen a verdict for $36,000
with interest from May, 1891, the whole
verdict aggregating about $49,000.
The evidence before the Jury was to
the effect that Lewis, when president of
the Bank of Key West, induced Allen to
purchase $96,000 of the stock of the bank
at $1.20 per share. • Allen agreed to buy
on the condition that Lewis retain the
property of the hank, his other holdings
In the bank, and also that he protect the
credit of the bank with the New York
correspondent. On these terms Allen
made the purchase. He borrowed the
money, depositing the stock as collateral.
Lewis soon after returned to his home
in Tallahassee, resigned the presidency
of the bank, transferred his other hold
ings to his wife and children and In
formed Alien that he could no longer
sustain the credit of the bank with the
bank’s New York correspond»nt. Short
ly after this the bank failed, and In the
failure Allen lost all of his earnings for
years. The failure, he alleged, was due
to the course pursued by LewlB.
