There was a happy gathering of return

sexes who never traveled to the far north
at the "first annual stampede and sour
Cough social" at 116 Turk street last
evening. The affair wa» given by Dell
Clark and G. W. Meyer, who styled them
selves "Umaluctucs." There was flanc
ing and lots of refreshments. The rooms
were prettily Qecorated for the occasion.
The reception committee consisted of H.
E. Pratt. Judge J. H. Tamm, E. O. Llnd-
Lloom, Gordon .Hall, William Chenoweth,
J. 8. Copley, Samuel Dannenbaum, Dr. F.

Reports were presented touching the
government of the denominational Insti
tutions and recommending that they be
placed, under certain conditions, in con
trol of a conference trust association.
This will be a special order of business
for to-morrow morning's session.
A resolution from H. W. Cottrell to re
move the general conference offices from
Battle Creek to a point on the Atlantic
eeaboard favorable to the work provoked
much inquiry. Delegates de$ired to know
whether that means New York or Lon
don for the conference headquarters.
Klder Cottrell was not sure on that point,
and the conference laid the matter over
until the committee shall have completed
Its report on that subject.
Elder W. T. Knox was the presiding of
ficer to-day. At the morning session a re
port was read urging systemateic ram
paigns of evangelizing In foreign field*.
asking appropriation of funds from local
conference treasuries and inviting a tith
ing fund of 10 cents a week from mem
bers of the church to forward the work.
"The bonds cover the main sanitarium
ground**, including the main building, the
dormitories, power, electric light, cold
storage and laundry plants and a number
of cottages. The total cost of the build
ings and grounds value Is between $600,000
and $700,000.
"With relation to Dr. Kellogg, who has
been accused of having ulterior designs in
some of the provisions of the trust deed,
I desire to emphasize that he does not
now know, in my opinion, what are the
provisions of the deed, because I do not
believe he scrutinized it with that close
attention necessary to remember in de
tail. The deed was drawn by myself and
was amended after numerous examina
tions by the trust company's attorneys
and officials. Unless It had been a trans
action, legal and in good faith, the trust
company would not have touched it."
After he had finished his speech, Judge
Arthur replied to a categorical bombard
ment from Elder Parsons, who explained
that he desired only to insure a full flood
of light on questions in doubt.
"The proceedings were conducted wilh
every regard for the interests of the bond
holders, who were protected by every
safeguard known to the. large and respon
sible institution which accepted the trust.

Death of Major Loring.
Judge Arthur said:
"After the fire that destroyed the sani
tarium, the question was how to get
means to rebuild. At the time of the
fire the sanitarium owed $230,000 or $240,
000, due principally to members of the
Seventh Day Adventists' denomination.
It was Impossible to get. more money on
the personal obligations of the trustees.
he only feasible way open was to create
a mortgage debt to secure bonds to raise
the money.
"After much investigation I reported to
the board that the plan was a legal one,
and the Central Trust. Company at
Chicago was selected as trustee. The
vnlue of the property, after the build
ings were completed was to exceed
That there has been widespread dls
satlsfuction in the church throughout the
United States because of that financial
move was made manifest this afternoon
when delegates requested thai those who
had handled the deal for the sanitarium
make explanations. It appeared that
much of the criticism had been born of a
complete misunderstanding and that Dr.
John H. Kellogg, the head of the sani
tarium, had come in for a large share of
the unfavorable comment within the
Upon invitation of the conference.
Judge Jesse Arthur of Battle Creek, the
general conference attorney, gave at
length a history of the bond issue, and
the preceding transactions./ He declared
that Dr. Kellogg "was In no ' way con
cerned: that all of the business was
transacted by himself and the repre
sentatives of the Central Trust Company
of Illinois, and that the Issue was legal
and for the best interests of the sani
Day Adventists was 'the strong
feeling that has existed in the denomina
tion over the action of the trustees of
tho • great Battle Creek, Mich., sani
tarium, an institution of worldwide note,
in placing a mortgage debt upon its en
ormous property to cover a bond issue
by which the money v/as raised to re
build the Institution aftc-r a great fire a

twenty-four- hours have passed- since the

some remote country town until {he at

emphatic notification that in case the re
sistance of the Bulgarian settlers in Tur
key to -the Sultan's reforms brings, on a
Turkish-Bulgarian conflict, Bulgaria must
not count on any support, moral or ma

PARIS, April 2.— The French Foreign
Office has been officially advised that th«
Sultan of T*rkey has ordered a division
of troops to the scene of the recent out
breaks of Albanians.
Official advices also con flrra. the reports
dt the wounding of the Russian Consul at
Mitrovitza daring the unsuccessful attack
which the Albanians made on that town.
The attacking party numbered 3000 men.
representing the element opposing th«
plan of reforms which the powers jointly
formulated < and which Turkey accepted.
The officials here consider that the Al
b&hian opposition to the reforms creates
a serious complication and they accept
the Sultan's action in dispatching lars ¦
reinforcements to Albania as evidence i,f
the,. Turkish Government's Intention ti#
cdrry out the reforms project.
