WESTERN YEARLY MEETING IN
NO SEPARATE SESSIONS
Tor Women Will Be Had This Year
Professor Russell on the
Plainfield, Intl., September 16.-
The Western Yearly 'Meeting of
Friends convened here today. While
the Yearly Meeting proper did not
begin until today, following the usual
custom the- meeting of one of its prin
cipal departments that of ministry
and oversight was hed in the Yearly
Meeting house yesterday afternoon.
There was a good attendance, and the
crowd today is large.
' In the . years past, and in some of
the , more conservative Yearly Meet
ings, the sessions of the ministers and
the .overseers have been, open to
members of the. society only, as ques
tions of church policy and other mat
ters of importance are then discuss
ed. . The- Western Yearly Meetings
have broken away from this practice,
and, while only delegates from the
various quarterly meetings and mem
bers of the departments of ministry
and overseers had a voice in the meet
ing, visitors who were not Friends
wer not asked to withdraw.
As women Friends have absolute
equality in the Friends' association
with the men, there are two clerks of
the meeting John 0. Iladley, of Dan
ville, acting as present clerk, and Ida
Coffin Doari, of .Iladley, as recording
Among the more interesting com
munications from the quarterly meet
ings were those from Kokomo 'and
New London. They declared that in
the opinion of those quarterly meet
ings the time had come when the
Yearly Meeting should take pains to
place in the hands of - the ministers
who had not the advantages of mod
ern methods a system of study which
might assist them better to meet the
educational and spiritual needs of
No Separate Sessions for Women.
Until ten years ago the Western
Yearly Meetings have had separate
business sessions for men and women.
The Yearly Meetings have now decided
that there shall be no separate meet
ings, as the questions discussed are of
the same importance to men as wom
en. Today's service began with devo
tional service at 8 o'clock, follow
ed by a business session, when com
mitters were appointed and reports
heard. The reading of the epistles
-.from London and Dublin took place
at noon. Mrs. Charlton Edholm, of
California, gave an address on "So
cial Purity" this afternoon, and this
evening Professor Elbert Russell, of
Earlham College, wil speak on "Qua
ker Literature." Louis E. Stout, of
Plainfield, is presiding clerk of the
meeting, and Lydia Painter Taylor, of
Monrovia, is recording clerk.
Secured to Deliver a Lecture in this
It is' understood that Col. George
W. Bain, who so highly entertained
people at the Chautauqua, has been
engaged to deliver a temperance lec
ture before the Indiana Yearly Meet
ing of Friends to convene here the

In Newcastle to "be Razed to
Ground. ' v
Newcastle, Ind., September 16.
The' Scott homestead, an old land
mark of the city, which has stood on
East Broad street 'for more than fifty
years, is shortly to be torn down. The
house is in all probability the oldest
in the city.
When Rutherford B.. Hayes was the
Republican "presidential; candidate a
big rally was held here, and in a va
cant lot adjoining the Scott home
a cannon had been placed to fire sa
lutes. In" their anxiety to make lots
of noise the gunners became reckless
and the quick firing heated the cannon
and it burst, pieces flying in all dir
ections. Three boards on the west end of the
Scott house show where a piece of the
cannon weighing sixty pounds, pene
trated the wall, In its path was a
chimney, and also an old-style mantel,
both of which were torn away. In the
same room an infant, now a well
known young lady of the city was
sleeping and, although the cradle was
covered with mortar, the child was un
injured and when uncovered was still
asleep The wide board which formed
the mantel had been thrown across
the cradle, covering the child, and
the bricks had fallen on top of this,
saving the child from death.
Tames a Bully With a Knockout Blow
New York, September 1G. The
Rev. Father Reany chaplain of the
United States i-eeeiving ship Hancock,
moored at the Cob dock at the navy
yard, has reported himself for giving
a practical illustration of the relation
of religion and the Japanese art of
jui-jitshu to bullyism on board ship.
The bully on th Han cock wa s re
cently eidisted. He came from Denver
and could handle almost anything on
board, from two or three jackies at
one time to a machine gun. A series
of fights made some of the men afraid
of,him. This increased his desire to
play the bully ,and everything went
well with him till the "fighting chap
lain" came forward one day and
found him making himself obnoxious
to some of the apprentice boys. .
The chaplain administered a first
class drubbing and then a knock out
Father Reany then went aft without
a word and reported later that he
had knocked down a member of the
crew. It is not probable that any ac
tion will be taken.

Laid Off Many Men at the Shops in
Peru, Ind., eptember 16. The Chi

company has just laid off thirty-five
employes at the local shops for an
indefinite period. The men say they
can not understand why such a move
should be made at this time, as the
shops have plenty of work.

Dates Set for the Opening Games
. in the 'Western.
The Western Polo season will not
be inaugurated until November 14.
The managers believe there is a gen
eral desire to see the greatest indoor
sport of the present day sooner than
that date, but there was juueh hesi
tancy in beginning the season earlier
on the grounds that the political cam
paign is expected to gi-ow hot from
now on and probably would interfere
until the election with the attend
ance at the games should they be
scheduled. The managers of the
Central league thought otherwise,
however, and have designated that
their season shall commence two
weeks earlier, Oetober 31 to be exact.
