S. of the Conference, is Reported
List of Those Who Will be Ordained
Elders and Deacons in the Church
Other Conference News.
Special to Tilnes-Republican.
Davenport, Oct. 8.—The Methodist
"conference came to a splendid climax
"in its proceedings Friday in the elo
quent address of Bishop Joyce to the
-classes that come up for admission Into
the conference. His theme was "The
Glory of the Christian Ministry," and
for more than an hour he gave eloquent
advice to the young ministers.
The vasr. auditorium of St. John's
church was filled, and people leaned
forward to catch every word. With such
addresses as are being delivered here
by bishop, secretaries, editors, and re
turned missionaries, no wonder the
Methodist ministers go out to their
fields of labor and accomplish great
things for the church.
The address of Dr. W. F. Anderson
of New York City, the new secretary
of the board of education, Thursday
night, upon the "Christian Ideal of Ed
ucation,',' was a masterly effort.
Dr. Dunham's evangelistic services
&ach afternoon are creating a great deal
of attention, and people flock from all
parts of the city and^from Bock Island
and Moline, to listen to him.
Mis? Grace Todd, of China, and Miss
Mable Lossing, of Fayette, were the
speakers at the anniversary of the
Woman's Foreign Missionary Society,
and both g^ve good addresses. The
W. F. M. S., of the conference has
had a splendid growth during the past
year, its membership now being 4,000
and its collection for this year $11,800.
The class whose members will be or
dained elders this year is composed of
the following: J. B. Bird, C. A. Bed
dow, N. Y. Stormes, John Eldridgs,
G. M. Bing, G. H. Birney, C. W. Mc
Cord, Jesse R. Coffyn, E. A. Lang, and
C. M. Rogers.
The class for admission into lull
connection and who will be ordained
deacons are these: T. C. Wetzwigman,
R. M. Reider, R. W. Wyart, E. C.
Bartlett, J. P. Van Horn, O. M. San
ford, T. H. Temple, John H. During, B.
A. Davis, George H. Birney, and Frank
W. Brown.
The following will be left without
appointments, to attend theological
school: J. J. Hijl, John Eldridge, G.
E. Mansfield, E. A. Lang, Carl A. Felt,
George W. Dunham, George E. Moss
man and C. E. Stinson.
Harry Farmer has moved to the
Philippine Islands, and Dean C. Dutton

Diamond Jo Line Packets Have Enjoy
ed a Fairly Good Season.
Special to Times-Republican.
Dubuque, Oct. 8.—After enjoying a
good but not extraordinary season, the
Diamond Jo line packets, St Paul and
Quincy have gone into winter quarters
in the ice harbor. The Quincy arrived
from the south earlier in the week while
the St. Paul arrived from St. Paul
Wednesday evening. The passengers
and freight on the big side-wheeler
were transferred to the Dubuque, which
went south Thursday. The latter boat
will be kept in service as long as bus
iness warrants it. The Quincy, whieh
has been running between St. Louis and
Keokuk, has been succeeded by the Sid
ney. These boats will be tied up ir»
the canal at Keokuk and will be kept
therp until spring.
Big improvements will be made on
the Diamond Jo's packets in the spring.
While the St. Paul is practically a new
boat, she will be overhauled, and put
in the best possible condition. The
Quincy will be gone over in the spring
and improved. There are a number or
boats on the ways and no more room at
"Business has been as good as the
average rlverman expected," said Capt.
Killeen, "but not anything near as good
as the people who live on the land
thought it would be. A great many
people were of the opinion that every
boat going to St. Louis this summer
would carry a crowd, but such was not
the case. While It was pleasant on the
river the weather was too hot in St.
Capt. Killeen In speaking of the trip
of the river and harbors commiteee paid
a compliment to Chairman Burton say
ing that he was one of the most busi
ness-like men he ever met. Capt. Kil
leen is of the opinion that the commit
tee was very favorably impressed with
the upper river, and believes that an
appropriation will be made. He had
great confidence in the future of the
Mississippi and believes that it will
some day be the greatest waterway in
the world.
Head of Yale Divinity School Begins
Notable Religious Gathering.
Special to Times-Republican.
Grlnnell. Oct S.—A fitting1 prelude to
the meeting of the American Board of
Commissioners for Foreign Missions,
which begins here next Tuesday is the
Inter-Collegiate Bible Study Insti
tute of the Young Men's Christian as
sociation. whose Initial meeting1 was
held in the college chapel last evening.
There are twenty-three of these stu
as so at on In at a
places have been provided for a hun
dred delegratps tn this Institute. The
meetings will cover Friday- evening
and Saturday and Sunday both day
and evening.
The opening address at 8 o'clock last
evening was by Harry Wade Hicks, of
Boston. Mass.. taking the place of Dean
E. I. Bos worth, of Oberlin, O.. who was
prevented by sickness In his family
from being present. The address was a
very earnest appeal for systematic Bi
ble study on the part of the college
student, not only as a matter of faitn
and spiritual growth but as a necess
ity for a well educated man.
The especially notable events of to
day are the address at 11 n. in. by Dr.
E. A. Steiner of Iowa college, and the
addresses by Dean Frank K. Sanders,
of Yale Divinity school at 2:15 in the
afternoon and 7:30 in the evening.
A special interest for Grinnell and
Iowa College people centers in Dean
Sanders as he was elected president of
Ioiwa college to succeed President
Yates, but was offered such additional
inducements at Yale that he decided to
remain there.
Norman Would Have a "Union Peo
ple's" Party, But is Refused.
Des Moines, Oct 8.—J. R- Norman,
chairman of the state committee of the
people's party, was before the secre
tary of state yesterday in an effort to
secure a change in the name of his po
litical organization from the people's
party to the union people's party.
"Calamity" Weller of the Fourth dis
triot had already filed the requisite pe
tition to place the nominees of the mid
dle of the road populists on the official
ballot under the nam of people's party.
Mr. Norman appeared with petitions on
behalf of the same nominees, but
wished them to be placed under the
amplified party name.
Secretary Martin, of course, had not
the authority to admit the Norman
"You see,' said Mr. Norman, who
lives at Albia and is an enthusiast as
well as an editor, "down our way, we
have a lot of unionists who have joined
the people's party with the understand
ing that the name will be expanded.
We ought to do this, In fairness to this
large contingent which has annexed
itself to us. I am sure that Mr. Weller
would make no objection were he con
sulted about it. The secretary of state
ought to file the nominations under the
new party name. I never did think
much of this populist organization, but
had no objection to the name of the
people's party, but the time is now here
when we should expand."

Former Iowa Man Says His Wife Was
Taken Away From Him.
Sioux City, Oct. 6.—William J. Mc
Crum, aged 36 years, a Cherokee coun
ty farmer, Is endeavoring to convince
a Jury in the United States-court that
he is entitled to $15,000 damages from
his father-in-law, Frederick Schmidt,
for taking his wife away from him and
alienating Mrs. MoCrum's affections.
Schmidt is now a resident of Tropico,
Cal., a suburb of Los Angeles. The
trial of the case, which has been pend
ing nearly two years, was begun yes
terday afternoon.
The Schmidts formerly lived in
Cherokee county, and some years ago
moved to California. McCrum was
marrigdl. to Miss Augusta Schmidt No
vember 28, 1894. They lived together
until July 20, 1902, and have one child,
a boy of 8 years. The McCrums con
cluded to move to California, in 1902,
and when they got out there went to
the Schmidt home to stay temporarily,
until they could get located. McCrum
said that three weeks afterward he
bought a home of his own in Tropico
and took his wife to. live in it. She
had executed two deeds to him, one
for the Iowa farm, which they had left
and one for their new California home
which he had just purchased. These
deeds were the bone of contention that
led to the unfelicitious relations in the
Schmidt and McCrum households. Mc
Crum said that his father-in-law in
formed him that if he had the deeds
recorded they would take their daugh
ter home,
"I met Mr. Schmidt in East Lake
Park, Los Angeles," said McCrum,
"and he told my wife, who was with
me at the time, that if I recorded the
deeds, to leave me. On Sunday night,
July 20, the Schmidt carriage came up
to my house and my wife was taken
away from me. She afterward sued
me in the superior court of Los An
geles county to have the deeds set
aside. I tried to fix it up with Schmidt
so that we could live together again,
but Schmidt refused. I offered to make
my wife a joint owner with me in the
property and give her $1,000 besides,
but it was no use."
McCrum claims he was happy with
his wife and boy until the interference
of the old folks, who, he said, wrong
fully conspired together to break up
his family and deprive him of the so
ciety of his wife and the custody of his
child that he has been injured in his
business and his standing in society.
He is now living in Cherokee county
on his farm again, while his wife is
living with her parents. They are all
present at the trial.
Mrs. McCrum is about 30 years of
age and is a neatly dressed young wo
man with a pleasing countenance.
Schmidt, who is a prosperous looking
man of nearly 60 years, sat near his
counsel, and as his son-in-law testified
the defendant shook his head constant
I ly to indicate his approval and disap
proval of the statements made by the
Many Mothers of a Like Opinion.
Mrs. Piimer, of Cordov^, Iowa, says:
"One of my ohildren was subject to
croup of a severe type and the giving
of Chamberlain's Cough Remedy
promptly, always brought relief. M«ny
mothers in this neighborhood think the
same as I do about this remedy and
want no other kind for thetr children."

Coach Says Alleged Trick

After a hard scrimmage Wednesday
night the average weight of the squad
of football men that will be taken to
Grinnell was found to be 155 pounds.
The practice this week has been hard,
but there is still a tendency .to loose
ness in the plays. Ferral, Moore and
Nelson of last year's team have prac
ticed, with the squad thia week and
may be used in the Grinnell game, tho
they insist that they will not come out
after that. The rooters are far from
confident of success in Saturday's
game, but look for an even score. The

Men Are Bumped and Sore and borne
Out of the Game.
Special to Times-Republican.
Iowa City, Oct. 8.—Iowa's football
squad, cheered by the band and the
crowd of rooters, 300 strong, that ac
companied them, left for Des Moines
this morning, doubtful as to the filial
result of the Drake game.
Iowa is not as strong as she was,
when she played the Cornell second
team one week ago, by a good deal.
The line has been materially weaken
ed by the loss of Rockwood, the big
left guard,and his place will be filled
this afternoon by Scalon, a newer and
much weaker man. Schwin, who is
playing left tackle, is also in very poor
condition, on account of the two big
muscle bruises from which he has been
suffering during the past five days.
Macgowan who will probably start the
game at full back, is but little recover
ed from the bum knee that has been
bothering him for the week past.
If either Macgowan or Schwin are
forced out of the game after the first
few minutes of play, as now seems
probable, Iowa can hardly run up a big
score on the Drake eleven. It is well
known that Monilaw has been hiding
the real strength of his team from the
press and that only during the past
week has It leaked out that several of
his old men, who have been declared
out of the game for good and all, have
One way or another It is hardly pos
sible that Iowa will run up a big score
on Drake. If Coach Chalmers finds out
in the first half that his men can hold
the Des Moines crowd easily, there Is
no doubt but that he will send many
substitutes into the game with the idea
of saving his men for the Chicago con
test next Saturday.
The men who were taken and the
probable lineup is as follows: Center,
guards, Atkinson and Scalon
tadkles, Schwin and Cresco White
ends, Streff and Knapp quarter, Grif
fith halves, Chalmers and Jones full,
Macgowan. The substitutes are Stol

prisoner Avas brought to Council Bluffs
at ail early hour this morning and lodg
ed in the county Jail, None of the mon
».-y stolen from the bank was found by
the sheriff or his posse. It was ascer
tained yesterday that the amount of
cash taken was about $1,575. The team
and buggy used by the robber, it was
learned yesterday, are the property of
J. F. Nevins, a Council Bluffs livery

to him, is said to be quite certain that
she recognized Karrer's voice. The
man wore a heavy black mustache and
gotee, which were evidently false. Kar

which a false one oould easily be worn.
