A meeting of the Methodist Ministers*
Association was held yesterday at Ep
worth League Hall when a paper was
read by Rev. E. M. Hill on "Faith and
Doubt," in which the unsettling effect
of doubt upon the practical life of
Christian men and women-'was treated.
Rev. William M. Brewster, just ar
rived from China, told of the converts
of his mission and of the feeling among
the natives to contribute to the Chris
tian work and make it self-supporting
and independent, so far as money is
concerned, of the missionary board.
Bishop Hamilton and numerous min
isters were present.
He said further that the church was
awakening anew and they heard of
prayer everywhere. Prayer, 'said Dr.
Bevier, gave a lighter mind and those
that prayed became energetic and en-
Joyed the fullness of life.
Among: those who were present were:
Rev. Edward K. Strong, Rev. H. H.
Bell, D. D., Rev. W. H. Landon, D. D.,

Rader presided and there was a large
Rev. Dr. W. C. Day delivered an ad
dress, his subject being "The Coming
Revival," which • he said was among
the greatest present needs.
Clergymen of the various denomi
nations had 'a busy day yesterday,
Methodists, Presbyterians and CQngre
gationalists meeting at their various
headquarters and hearing profound pa
pers on theological subjects and plan
ning for future engagements in church
The Presbyterian ministers met at
the Woman's Occidental Board, when
Rev. Dr. J. M. McElhlnney presided. .
The paper of the day was read by
Rev. Dr. Bevler and his subject was
"Prayer." Rev. Dr. Bevier said, among
other things, that at this period they
looked upon prayer as work, as labor
and a duty. He considered that there
Avas a service in prayer as well as a
privilege and said further that all he
roes of the past had been men ¦ of
prayer. Paul's life began and ended
with prayer. Indeed, said Dr. Bevier,
his life was filled with the idea of
"A person who has addressed the
ministerial body has been visiting va
rfous denominations pretending, I
hear, to belong to each denomination
called 'upon, and has presented cre
dentials of which he evidently has an
assortment to suit each -one. I heard
that he visited a gentleman of the
Roman Catholic church and told him
that he had been converted to that
faith and received a contribution of
$5 from him. It Is one of those im
positions that should be exposed,"
though at tirst I v.as inclined to ad
vise suppression of the matter."
The Rev. James Wood worth quito
agreed' with Dr. Wills and reminded
the ministers that some time ago they
had been grossly imposed upon by a
man who presented his credentials,
which upon inquiry turned 'out to be
an impudent forgery. >
The Rev. Mr. Vanee has a small room
at a Turkish bath establishment on
Market. street. Mr. McCoy feels a sood
deal of sorrow for the man and said
yesterday that he did not think there
was any harm in Mr. Vanee.
The Rev. Mr. Guthrie is more out
spoken and condemns what seems to
him a most extraordinary procedure.
Speaking of the affair later, Dr. Wills
"I may at once say that I object to
having men speak here until they are
known. And by this I would have it
fully understood that I do not object
to men of other denominations, or even
men not connected with any denomina
tion, addressing this body. But they
must be men of good reputation and
"I do not intend to mention nny
name, but I allude to one who has
victimized members of this union and
other denominations and I simply men
tion this as a warning as to our course
in the future."
Speaking at the ministers* meeting
yesterday, which Mr. Vanee addressed
last Monday week, the Rev. Dr. J. T
Wills said:
Mr. Vanee had also, probably in the
desperation of circumstances, ap
pealed to the Rev. Mr. Guthrie for a
Jetter to Manager Chapman of the
United Railroads which might enable
him to get a position on the cars as
gripman or conductor. The letter was
Riven but not without the minister flrst
trying to dissuade his applicant from
turning to the occupation. Subsequent
revelations then prompted Mr. Guthrie
to write to Mr. Chapman and with
draw his recommendation.
By some means not explained Mr.
Vanee discovered that Mr. McCoy had
been informed about the advertisement
which was so objectionable to the
Young Men's Christian Association, and
straightway wrote the general man
ager of the association, not only regret
ting the publication, but explaining
that men do things when in pressed
circumstances which they would at no
other time think of doing, and, further,
Mr. Vanee made an appeal to Mr. Mc-
Coy for assistance toward his passage
back to far-off Australia.
It is a fact that the Rev. Mr. Edgar
Vanee, according to his own statement,
was looked upon as responsible for a
Fimllar matrimonial advertisement that
appeared In a Vancouver paper not so
long ago, and it Is a fact that the Rev.
Mr. Edgar Vanee threatened the pro
prietor of the Vancouver paper for an
article which connected the Antipodean
gentleman with the sams matrimonial
advertisement, but he let the matter
drop after his lawyers told him, he
says, of the great expense such an ac
tion would Involve.
And a number of such instances got
whispered about, until the members of
the presbytery began to fear that their
confidence had been misplaced.
General Manager McCoy of the Young
Men's Christian Association was told
of the matrimonial advertisement and
was deeply hurt about the matter.
It came to the ears of an elder that
Mr. Vanee had been a member of the
Roman. Catholic faith and had told a
gentleman that he was a convert, but
his position was such that he required
aid, and without further explanation
his need was magnanimously complied

Rev. Edgar Vanee of Sydney, Austra
Two weeks later the Rev. Mr. Vanee
of Sydney, Australia, presented him
self at the mission house of the Wom
an's Occidental Board of Foreign Pres
byterian Missions, Sacramento street, '
and by consent delivered an address,
which was later debated by the august
ministerial body, which meets every
Monday to hear learned papers and dis
cuss ecclesiastical subjects.
Tho address was received with pro
found acknowledgement, and the Rev.
Mr. Edgar Vanee left the premises and
later expressed a desire to court the
acquaintance of several Presbyterian
ministers of note In the community. He
succeeded, and among them was the
Rev. Mr. Guthrie of the First Presbyte
rian Church, whose quick perception
prompted him that his ministerial
brother from the Antipodes was not too
well off with this world's comforts. The
kindly minister after an interview
pressed the Antipodean to remain and
accept a place at the family board.
The Rev. Mr. Vanee complied with the
warm invitation and later received
from the reverend gentleman pecuniary
Dr. Stone of Mount Zion Hospital was
immediately called by telephone, but
Mrs. Fitzgerald had been dead for
many hours.
The unfortunate woman had been
sick and despondent for a long time.
Emil G. Kluge, a member of the re
tail clear firm of Kern & Kluge at 97
Third street, was found suffocated by
illuminating gas in the pantry of his
residence, 3780 Twenty-third street, yes
terday morning. His relatives are of
the opinion that his death was the re
sult of an accident. His 11-year-old
son Frederick, with whom he slept, in
formed the family that his father got
out of bed at 31 o'clock on Sunday
night, partly dressed himself and went
to the pantry to get some hot water,
his health having: been very poor late
ly. When the boy awoke in the morn
ing he saw that his father had not
returned and he informed decedent's
stepdaughter. Miss Emily Schneider,
who found Mr. Kluge lying dead on
the pantry floor near a small gas stove,
the kev of the burner being open and
the gas flowing from it. the. flame be
fng out. A small pan of water was on
the stove, which lends plausibility to
the theory of accident.
Mrs: Mary J. Fitzgerald, 72 years old,
committed suicide last Sunday night
at her residence, 2320 Sutter street, by
inhaling illuminating gas. Her daugh
ter, Mrs. H. L. Atkinson, with whom
she lived, smelled escaping .gas in the
house "at 6 o'clock yesrerday morning.
She notified her husband and they made
a search for the leak and found Mrs.
Fitzgerald's body lying in bed undress
ed. The keys on the two gas burners
in the room were open and gas was
flowing from the fixture. On the bed
they found a small satchel with a note
in it containing the following:

auspiciously, with many merited hon
ors for the gifted artists whose work

of the Young Woman's Temper-
ance Association of Buffalo, N.Y.,
strongly advises all suffering
women to rely, as she (fid, up-
on Lydia E Pinkham's Vege-
table Compound.
"Deab JIrs. Pikkdam : — Your med-
icine is indeed an ideal Troxncn's medi-
cine, and by far the best I know to
r..store lost health and strength. I
fccHered misery for several years, being
troubled Trith raenorrbagia. My back
ached, I had bearing-down pains and
frequent headaches. I ¦would often
Tvcke from restful sleep, and in such
pain thct I suffered for hours before I
cauldfro to deep arain. I dreaded the
long niprbtsasmucn as the weary days.
I consulted tiro di Cerent physicians,
hoping to gret relief but, finding that
f heir medicine did not seem to cure me.
I tried your Vegetable Compound
on the recommendation of a friend
from the East who rras visiting me.
*' I an glad that I followed^ her ad-
rice, for' every ache and pain is "gone,
rnd not only this, but my general
i'-alth is much improved. I have a
fcne appetite and have gained in flesh.
My earnest advice to suffering women
is to put aside all other medicines and
to take LjrdJa E. Pinlcham's Vege-
table Compound." — Miss Neixie

H From which pail will she fill her Frying Kettle ? ftj
-M Oh, she takes a Cupful from the Cottolene Pail. ' |||
|i Why does she not choose the Lard ? j|j
H Because that would make them Greasy and Indigestible, m
