Senator Hoar, President of the conference took the chair The oust address was delivered by the Rev Joseph May. of Philadelphia. His nuiKJtCL was. 'How we understand and make use of the Bible in our work." Dr. Mar asdd that although the good vthich the Bible had done was practically im measnreablt. the evil of which it has been mate the instrument was scarcely more monroahle He said that to place such a Itfceratitre as he termed the Bible, rather than a hook, into the hands of uninstructed persons to be read in fragments, was to nntttfr its real value aad engender in nnaserabie absurdities and falsities of nr Relation to Jesus' was the sub ject of the next paper, which was given by the Rev.

Hooker N avlif iiKTton'n AIilr'-.s. The afternoon session was presided over by the Rev A. U Lord, of Providence. R. 1 Mrs. John A. Bellows presented in a very interesting manner the relation of the Sonda school to the child. She was ioBowed by Booker T. Washington, whose remarks were received with applause and nsfuobaiiou In speaking of his own race he said that be did not believe any race in history, under similar circumstances, has. in so short a time, learned to take cone of Itself in so large a measure in its reSgfams life The negro race throughout the South, he continued, with few eccep tioas. has built its own church houses This has been done to the extent that, I Oiok we are safe in saying, our peo ple own church property that is valued at than $25 000,060 This property has accumulated at the cost of much sacrtBce and earnest effort. A verj large proportion of it is the result of the nickels, dimes, and dollars which the women have earned over the washtub and over the cooking-Steve The race has not only built nearly aU its own church booses, but la a very large measure it supports its ministers. In many cases the support is very meagre, it is true, often a minister not somas; more than $10 a month in cash, for his services. Perhaps the most encouraging thing in couaeetten with the lifting up erf the ne gro la Asserica is the fact that he knows that he is down and wants to get up He knows that be is ignorant and wants to get light. He fills every schoolhouse and ewery chnrch that is open to him He is wffims; to follow leaders when he is once ooovmced that the leaders have his best interest at heart. During slavery the negro felt that he was being deprived of his labor without com pensation, hence anything that be could hoM of from the white man ia reU..-n for this labor, he thought. Justly belonged to Mas. We must be patient while we are teaching the negro a different code of morality The Southern Problem. "The snore I study the Southern prob lem," roocludd the speaker, "the more I ass convinced that It is not so much a eaeotJoa as to what yon will do with the negro as It ia what the aegro will do with you and your Christian civilisation. The Southern white man is in a. large measure beginning to apply his religion in the di rection of elevating the bis man by hts side. He is learning that while be owes a duty to the heathen ia Africa China, and Japan, he also owes a duty to the ne gro, who is at his ry door and needs civilisation and Christianity Tfeetv never was a time when we needed your aa&ctal help, your sympathy. anl your encouragement more than we need it today hi the South. The problem has not yet been solved, but it will be solved, in nsy opinion, if we are patient, wise, and uaoattsh in our efforts."

The regular evening sesshra of the eoa--voattpn was held In the First Congre Eottsoaf Church. The meeting was presided osr y Senator Hoar, and four speakers ad SwooS the audience on "The Appeal of the rnnuias Chnrch to the National Life of the Twentieth Century " The Hon George E Adams, of Chicago, ts-s in- f r epeskc He said in part- "Oa Of in STaf thlntra that T nitn.n. ia his g r u fcflr wor;j is a ingiier iJea J of the possible development of the human SOUl and & hisher idM of lh riie-nitv nf j human life than prevailed in the religious world before the time of Channing 'The best thing which the Unitarian Church carlo for the national life of the twentieth centurj is to preach to the na tion the same inspiring doctrine of hope and trust which Chaiming and Theodore Parker preached to the individual soul We need not dwell on the material greatness of the American people present or future. We ought rather to dwell on the moral greatness of the nation as it can be and ought to l3 "We are likeij to have more influence than an) other nation on the civilization of the twentieth centurj Our influence will be due to something more than our vast industrial power We shall be a new nation, made up bj combining the national characteristics cf several of the Ftrong races of northwestern Europe substan tially the same races which combined to I form the Bngiish nation There is no rea son to believe that these races will de teriorate under the American climate or that their combination in America will ba less virile than it was in England The Bnglish language will have more influence than anj other on the intellectual life of the twentieth centurj and we shall con stitute more than half of all the English speaking people of the world "I think the average American does not give so- large a part of his life and though to making nionej a he did thirtj or fortj J years ago Life in this countrj has more . varied interests than it had then Still I the danger of too much industrialism re 1 mains. To overcome it is the serice 1 which the Unitarian Church owes to the national life of the twentieth centurj I It cannot be oercome bj authority or bj an j religious' doctrine of fear It can , only be overcome by appealing to the dig- nitj of human nature and the passible nobility of human life It is the doctrine i of hope, which so mam writers anil j preachers of todaj orthodox as well as Unitarian hae derived directlj or in directly from the Unitarian pulpit o the nineteenth centurj " HeliKTinus Iirriiimtriictlfin. Rev Paul R Trothingham. of New Bed ford, Mass , spoke next on "The Appeal for Religious Reconstruction " He said the question of what appeal could be made by Christians was easiij answered It was the appeal for religious reconstruction This was the one great object that should I be worked for There was a certain amount of truth in the assertion that the doc j trines and dogmas of Christ were settled The religious appeal for the nineteenth j centurj was for destruction, and now the world was waiting for religious reconstruc 1 tion t There was much good material in the i way of religious ideas that had been thrown j into the nineteenth century wastebasket There was need for a new Iiturgj, a new j theoiogj, a new atmosphere Unitarian . leaven was not at work and glens were j visible everj where in the world that men were waiting for something new in reli gion The old creeds are full of superflui ties, which should be reduced to a solid basts and then rebullded into something definite. Dr Frothingham questioned the asser tion of Senator Hoar in his opening ad dress in sajing that it was the glory of Unitarianism that it could not be defined He thought it was far from being glorljus Something definite must be builded This should be based on the religious instinct of man, which is the same today as it was in the days of Elijah and of Christ It must be established on the impregnable rock of human nature "Mr. Hudson' UemarUfl. On the "Appeal of the Unitarian Church to Christian Sentiment," the Rev. Adel bert L. Hudson, of Buffalo, X Y., said in f part "Ow Western civilization is pro!oundly swayed b sentiment. We maj atfect a sort of anthracite culture heat without name but give us an occasion worthy to kindle our enthusiasm, and we show our selves at once as inflammable as drj drift wood. The sentiment which has most in fluenced our progress during the present centurj is reverence for liberty of thought, as expressed in our national and individual life. The special contribution of Unita rianism to that progress is that it has won a place for this sentiment in religion This in itself is bo slight achievement It has meant salvation from despair to thousands whose hearts have longed to hold fast the religious kaals of their youth, while their minds have revolted from the creeds and dogmas with which these ideals have seemed hopelessly involved And equally it has meant salvation from indifference to other thousands who, in outgrowing old beliefs have come dangerouslj near to los ing faith m the eternal verities But the chief value of the work of Unitarianism in this century is that it has prepared the way for a nobler work in the next "Rational thinking is an essential ele ment in the highest civilization But its value is small compared with the djna mic power of loftj ideals It attains its greatest usefulness when It furnishes the soil in which these high ideals may find most perfect growth. It is this opportunity for usefulness whch invites the most earn est effort of Unitarianism m the second century of its organized activitj Ileal Jsource of I'ovver. "The real source of power of the Chris tian religion does not lie in its outward effort to Mentifv the personelitj of Jesua with the eternal God It inheres rather In the subconscious ideal of a human Christ, inspiring the heart and vitalizing the will The tremendous revelation, still but faint ly grasped, of the essential unity of God and man the possibilitj of human nature, present in alt stages of its incompleteness, to attain perfection through the unfolding of a divine life resident within itself, and the promise of such attainment held out by the example of one human life which was grandly true to what is in you and me This has alwajs been the real substance of the Christian's faith "The elaborate and irrational worship of Jesus as God has hindered hitherto the best developments of Christian sentiment As this hindrance becomes graduallj re moved a fuller opportunity is given to make the ideal of the Christ life a on troillng force in all conceivable relations of the complex life of man But this ideal is not hard and fast. It contains a .jerm of the divine life capable of infinite ex pansion Creeds cannot circumscribe it, nor definitions limit its unfolding fower! Its radiance illuminates the untrod path ways of the coming century with the light and promise of God's tenderness and love, and we turn with reverent affection from the Christ that was and the Christ that is to 'the Christ that is to be ' " The last speaker of the evening was the Rev W W Fenn, of Chicago, whose branch of the subject was 'Thf Appeal to Conscience." His special thought was to urge individualism He enlarged on the growing tendency of a solidarity in relig ious as well as business life, and drew the conclusion that the betterment of man kind was not dependent on institutions or organizations, bat upon the obedience to the individual conscience.

It Ih Vromptcd. lt. ovv York's Com mander Sajs, Ileeause the Aeeu "") of ijanipson'M Charges VKalnst Miafter Has Jleen (tuest loned Morj of the Letter to To nil. NEW YORK, Oct IS When shown the statement made by Rear Admiral Sampson recently at the Boston navj j-nrd concern ing his participation in the legotiatlona with General roral. which led to the sur render of Santiago to General Shatter, Captain Chadwick, commander of the cruis er New York, now in this port, today made tha following statement ' I regret to be Involved in any discuss'on or altercation with General ShaCter, for whom I have a high regard and strong lik ing And I would say nothing whatever had not our commander-in-chief been at tacked in some papers on the ground of In accuracj of statement ' Under such circumstances I am obliged to say, simply In the Interest ot fact, that what he says is correct, and what I have seen in one newspaper as coming from the general shows a want of clear recollection in the matter on his pirt The letter was drafted (on Julj G, and not, as reported, on Jul j 12), on my own motion, after asking the general if he was open to suggestiors After reading it over he said he would sign it without making anj change "Before this, now ever, I called up Lieu terant Commander Staunton, assistant chief of staff, who had accompanied me, and had him read the dratt, asking him if he had any suggestions to make A slight change v. as made In one paragraph at his suggestion The address was put at the head of the draft by the clerk, who was called up to copy It The original draft was given to me as the copy which I should ictain It was roughly done in pen cil, and I sent it to my wife as a memento of the campaign "I repeat that I regard all this as rather trivial and of no special importance, ex cept from the standpoint of verifying the accuracj of Admiral Sampson's statement He Is strictly accurate regarding the let ter. The Admiral merely mentioned it, under circumstances when he desired to saj something which he thought might ba pleasing to a large number of my friends, then gatnercd together He certainly never designed it as an attack upon General Shafter in any sense To suppose other wise would be to do him a great Injustice." Concerning General Shatter's statement that the letter written bv Cantaln Chad- j wick was only a copy of the demand made by himself. Captain Chadwick said- "As I have said, It was at mj suggestion that the letter was written, and the com position of it was mine, except for the slight change suggested by Staunton. I know of no previous letter having been formulated." Regarding the circumstances attending the writing of the letter, Captain Chad wick explained. "General Shafter was not feeling at all well that day. I found him. In his shirt sleeves, evidently suffering, sitting outside his tent with a pair of slippers on his feet. He was feeling much depressed, largely on account of bodllj Illness, and the 103s ot men he had sustained In the assault upon the citj affected him, too He did not seem to have any Idea as to the best course to pursue, and, after I had talked to him for some Ime, I said. ''General, are jou open to suggestions? and he answered, I am.' Then I said " 'Why not allow me to write a lettei to General Toral demanding his surrender, and giving him a plain statement of the case' He replied, 'Yes, do so ' When 1 gave the letter to him, he read it over, and declared that he was satisfied with it, and called Lieutenant Colonel Milej over ana nsked him to have It typewritten But I objected to that because the Spaniards, as I pointed out, are very punctilious about matters of this kind, and would not look as favorablj upon a tjpewritten letter as upon one In script At mj suggestion.

Preparations looking to an indictment of former Captain Carter's alleged co-eon-splrators have been going on in the office of the Attorney General for several weeks. It 13 now said that the papers for presen tation to the grand jurj- at Savannah, Ga . have all been completed, and will be sub mitted to the jurj' at Its next session on November 14. With such great care ba3 the evidence been collected and the papers prepared that the officials of the Depart ment of Justice expect an immediate in dictment of the officials of the Atlantic Contracting Company, who, it is said, were Implicated with Carter In the fraudulent work at Savannah. As the Federal court for the Savannah district meets on the same day as the grand jury, it Is thought probable that the returns will be made at once to the court and warrants issued accordingly. It Is learned that the officials of the De partment of Justice contemplate not only the prosecution of the officers of the At lantic Contracting Company, but that thej' Yrill make an effort to secure the prose cution of Curter's father-in-law. It being charged that as Carter's deposits were made as he said under a power of attorney from Mr. Wescott, the latter was probably pos sessed of some knov. ledge regarding Car ter's dishonest proceedings A POSTMASTER'S SON ACCUSED.
