Will Have the People Elect an Over,
seer" Comments of Deacon
Lewis Will the Restor
er Appeal?
Chicago, July 2S The decision of
Judge Landis in the Zion City (Dowie)
case is a distinct victory for Voliva
and the "insurgents." It destroys, so
far as it can, the theocratical consti
tution of the church, and makes Dowie
simply a 1 wider, and not the whole
thing, practically, which is not a very
great exaggeration of his claims. John
C. Ilately as receiver 'will rule the
industries of the town. In a scene of
tremendous, tense excitement Judge
Landis denounced many of the f blow
ers of John Alexander Dowie in tbo
Christian Catholic church as traitors
to their country. There ensued a dis
turbance and the cries of women in
the court room. Judge Landis sternly
ordered quiet and threatened to clear
the room.
Ituin to the Church Predicted.
Prediction that Judge Landis' action
will bring ruin to the church founded
by Dowie followed the court finale of
the bitter fight betAveen the Voliva and
Dowie factions. Judge Landis ordered
an election of a general overseer of the
church to be held in Zion City on Tues
day, Sept. IS. This election is almost
sure to go in favor of Voliva and he
is elated to the seventh heaven. Dowie
declines to comment on the decision,
but the belief is general that he will
Faith Before Everything-.
The denunciation of Dowie it cs 03
traitors was caused by a clause in a
pledge required in joining the "Restor
ation Host," which pledgedeclares that
"all family ties and obligations and all
relations to all human governments
shall be held subordinate to this vow."
The vow is a profession of faith in
Dowie as general overseer, the prophet
and Elijah the restorer. Voliva came in
for denunciation, too, but he can stand
it, as he has a cinch on tho vote to be
What the Judge Decided.
According to Judge Landis: Dowie is
not the owner of Zion City. He has
been acting as trustee for the members
of his church. Dowie has recognized
existeuce of this trust relation. Voliva
and Alexander Granger well knew that
they were violating the trust Dowie
had reposed in them when they used
his power of attorney to dispossess
him. The Volivans had no right to ex
pel Dowie or any of his followers.
Says That the Landis Decision Is the
Uprooting of the Sect.
Zion City, 111., July 2S. Deacon John
A. Lewis, recognized spokesman of Dr.
Ikwi and who was chosen by him
to manage the Taradise plantation of
Mexico, the rock over which it is al
leged the Dowie and Voliva partisans
split, had the following to say of the
decision: "If the decree of judge Lan
dis stands the Chrislian Catholic Apos
tolic church of Zion is uprooted. The
cnurch is founded on the theory of a
tdeocracy, and how then can an elec
tion under the laws of Cook county, Illi
nois, proclaim who shall be leader of
the hosts?
"I maintain that God Almighty alone
can designate who shall be the First
Apostle. I firmly believe that the Lord
has designated John Alexander Dowie
t lead the hosts to the paths of light
Therefore when a special election is
called the whole fabric of the church
is destroyed. If God designates the
leader how can man choose him? As
far as property rights are concerned
they matter little to us; the great ques
tion is that of spiritual control; upon
that the very foundation of the church
depends. I am sure Dr. Dowie will
never be satisfied with the decision as
Dowie himself said that inasmuch as
he had not had an opportunity to read
the whole decision he would not at this
time express an opinion, or say what
he should do. It was too serious a mat
ter for the church to reach a conclu
sion without deliberation, and he would
not be hasty. He refused to answer a
question as to whether he would take
an appeal, saying that he desired first
to consult his counsel. "We want
peace," he said, "but not with dishonor.
I prefer that all statements should come
from my counsel."
These Poor Thugs Got Nothing.
St. Paul. July 28. The general store
of J. M. Hickey at St. Paul park, in
.which is located the village postotSce,
was entered by robbers, who in their
attempt to blow the safe blew out the
front of the building and had to leave
without any loot.
Eaten Up by the Locusts.
Ixmdon, July 2S. The correspondent
at Vienna of The Daily Express states
that locusts are devastating the neigh
borhood of Debreczia, where crops on
00.000 acres already have been con
sumed. Two Lynched for Murder.
Tampa, Fla.. "July 2S. John Black
and Will Ilea gin, negroes, "were lynched
by a mob of 200 men near Fort Gard
ner. Folk county. They had murdered
ii white man.
Russian Deputies Cannot Agree
on a Programme Against
the Czar.
Socialists Also Hanker for a Fight to
the Death.
Constitutional Democrats Inclined to
"Wait Developments Result
of a Secret Meeting.
St. Petersburg, July 28. The efforts
of the revolutionary iarties, except
the rightist, in the late lower house
of parliament which at the proper mo
ment were to proclaim a provisional
government have come to naught ow
ing to the opposition of the Constitu
tional Democrats, who apparently are
afraid of compromising themselves,
while one wing, headed by M. Nabou
koff, showed that it already had been
won over to the side of the ministry
against the programme of open revolu
tion. Deputies Meet in Seeret.
In spite of the activity of the po
lice representatives of four parties in
the late house the Constitutional
Democrats, the Democratic Reformers,
the Socialists and the Group of Toil,
about fifty in number succeeded in
assembling in a private house where
they deliberated on the proposal of the
Socialists and Group of Toil to form a
joint committee with power "when the
situation Justified" an outbreak or a
general strike or armed revolt, either
to convoke the old parliament and as
sume the reins of government or pro
claim a constituent assembly.
They Had a Hot Time.
The Constitutional Democrats ob
jected to the plan and proposed in
stead the appointment of four commit
tees which would work in cooperation
but without formal union. Editor Hes
sen favored more radical steps, but M.
NalKHikoff defended Premier Stolypin
and denied that the administration had
as yet proven itself reactionary, urging
that it should be given a chance to
justify itself. M. IJamischwili, a So
cialist deputy from the Caucasus, in a
rage denounced M. Naboukoff and his
friends as traitors, who had sold the
cause of liberty for office. He demand
ed the immediate severance of all rela
tions with the Constitutional Demo
cratic party. Others interposed and
prevented an open rupture, but the
meeting broke up without a decision.
Further co-operation between the two
factions is improbable.
Jewish Bund Is on the List Work ot
the Police.
Representatives of the two rolish
socialistic organizations, the Lettish
Socialists and the Jewish bund or
Zionistic Soocialists have arrived
here to participate in the revolutionary
conferences. Manifestos to the nation,
the army and navy and the Cossacks
will be signed by these representatives,
as well as by the regular Russian or
ganization. The printing establishment
of the suppressed journal, The Echo,
where thousands of copies of the Vi
borg manifesto were being surrepti
tiously printed, has been closed by the
police. The Socialists, who were pre
paring to issue a revolutionary paper
from the establishment, are now plan
ning to print it by force in one of the
regular printing plants.
The police searched the house of
Professor Borodin, of the University
of St. Petersburg, where meetings of
the parliamentary Group of Toil
were being held, and seized all the pa
pers of the committee.
Finance Minister Kokovsoff has ac
companied the figures of the revenues
for the first live months of the year,
S-JlS.Sno.OOO, compared with $391000,
000 the corresponding time last year,
with a statement declaring that Russian
finances are more than satisfactory,
and that the assertions of the revolu
tionists that Russia is on the verge of
bankruptcy are inventions, adding that
"an organization which has been build
ing for centuries is too strong for per
sons of even the maddest energy to
overturn." .
On account cf the indignation which
has been caused by the announcement
of services of thanksgiving for the
dissolution of parliament in various
cities, the holy synod has issued an
encyclical directing that the reading of
the emperor's manifesto in the
churches on Sunday shall not be ac
companied by such services. The bish
op of Poltava, however, celebrated a
Te Deum over the dissolution.
Forced to Print the AGdTxs.
Yaroslav, July 28. Twelve armed
men entered a printing office here aft

positors to set up and the printers to

An Aoirrjal Story Por
Littl FclKs
The Three Wishes cf
The LitUc Fish Princess
There was once upon a time a little
fish princess, and her father, the king
of the fishes, made a birthday party for
her and invited three fish witches.
"When the feast was over the first of
the three witches rose up and said.
"The princess shall have scales like
silver," and it was so. From that time
cn you could tell the little fish princess
by her shining silver scales.
Then the nest witch rose up and
said, "The princess shall move swifter
through water than a dart of light."
And it was so. From that time the
little princess beat everybody in the
fish races.
Now the third witch was just rising
up to give her gift when the king of
the fishes said: "Hold I Let the little
princess choose what she will have.,T
And the little fish princess said: "Oh,
my dear father, and my dear friends
all, I have seen the most beautiful lit
tle creature in the world going over
the top of the water in a boat, and she
was called a little girl. When the lit
tle girl went above me she trailed
something white in the water, and it
waa called a hand. Oh, my dear father
and kind friends, what I want is a pair
of hands!"
The poor old fish witch had been
standing on her tail all this time with
her mouth wide open. Now she sat
down kerflop, for fishes at that time
had not so much as a fin, and she de
spaired of ever making hands for the
little fish princess. But after awhile,
when the little princess seemed so
much In earnest about It, she tried
very hard. But she never could mako
the princess anything but fins, such aa
all fishes now have. Worcester Post.
First Half or IOOO the Most Prosper
ous Period of the Nation's
New York, July 28. R. G. Dun &
Co.'s Weekly Review of Trade says:
Comparisons of the volume of current
business w ith results at the correspond
ing date in previous years are uni
formly favorable. Semi-annual state
ments are now sufficiently complete to
make it certain that the first half of
100G was the most prosperous six
month period in the nation's history,
and unless heavy cancellations occur
the last half of the year will establish
a still higher record.
Contracts come forward freely in the
iron and steel industry,, and footwear
factories are receiving orders for deliv
ery next February. Complaints of in
adequate labor supply are universal.
Building operations are extensive.
Aside from a little too much rain in
some cotton states, the week's crop
news is encouraging.
Failures this w eek numbered 216 in
the United States, against 214 last year,
and 15 in Canada, compared with 27 a
year ago.
Sage's Will Gives Nothing to Charity,
but Numerous Bequests to
His Relatives.
New York, July 2S. With, as esti
mated by his friends, about $70,000,000
to divide Russell Sage, by his will
"which has been filed for probate found
room in his family for it all. Any leg
atee who contests the will is cut off
from all part in the property provid
ed the courts do not set aside thia
clause in case of a contest.
To his nephews and nieces he gives
each $23,000, and to his sister, Mrs.
Chapin, of Oneida, N. Y., he gave $10.
000, but as she has died since the will
was made the bequest goes back to
the estate. After providing for his
nephews and nieces, it is provided
that the residue of the estate that is,
nearly all of its goes to the widow
absolutely and forever. Sage was re
puted to have brothers, but none is
mentioned in the will.
Condemns Peekaboo Blouses.
Madison, Wis.. July 2S. In a lecture
at the state university Miss Abby S.
Mayhew, dean of women at the uni
versity, condemned peekaboo waists,
tight lacingand petticoats. Largeshoes
low necks and round garters were fa
vored. She said: "We never will bs
free so long as we wear petticoats.
Women never will have perfect free
dom unless she wears a gymnasium
costume. I an not advocating this for
the present day, but perhaps In a cen
tury we shall grow to it"
