The Ottumwa District Epworth

In spite of the early hour there were
over one hundred in attendance.
District Superintendent H. N. Smith

one present took a part.
At 8:45 Edward Stodghill led a
praise service which was followed by
an address by Mrs. A. B. San ford,
principal of the Iowa Bible Training
school of Des Moines. Mrs. San ford
represented the work of the school In
ssses. It was with great interest and
attention that all present listened to
Mrs. Sanford. She wished that, the
district, might furnish the funds to
keep Miss Bullard in the school next
rear. She was formerly supported
by the Keokuk district organization.
Give Money Freely.
The young lady who has received
the support of the Ottumwa district,
finished the school last May. At the
plose, of Mrs. Sanford's address rep
resentatives of the various local
""leagues took up the matter of support-
In miss Bullard, and in less than two
minutes she was provided with the
support needed to allow her to finish
the full course at the Iowa Bible Train
ing school at Des'Moines.
Mrs. Sanford t.hanked the conven
tion and suggested that leagues not.
giving to the support of Miss Bulladr
could, if they chose, help furnish the
music department, which needed $30.
She hardly finished her thanks until
the money came in. President Hen
ness was busy picking up the silver
and it came by a swift flight, through
the air. Every one sang, "Praise God
From Whom all Blessings Flow," for
$136 had been given.
The convention then turned its at
tention to matters of business. The
committee on constitution was called
for and reported that a change was
recommended lowering the district,
dues 2% cents per active member per
year. The report was accepted and
afterward the change was made. The
committee on resolutions, whose chair
man was Rev. J. H. Krenmver of
Jerome, also reported.
The committee on nominations was
reported next by Rev. E. J. Shook.
There were four names nominated
for each office'and all voting was by

by Albert L. Peterson of the Chsistians
burg league.
Rev. J. C. Kendrick spoke on the
"Debt of the Epworth League to the
old ministers."
Rev Kendrick has been a member of
the Iowa conference for 41 years and
was very able to handle his subject.
He told how the express companies
provide for their old horses and said
that Was better than some ministers
Were provided for. He urged leagues
lo get busy and help this cause. He
mentioned several leagues which are
helping in the work.
Cbas. K. Foote af Ottumwa was

The paper was read by Rev. E. J.

Jack McMinn. a slave to drink and
who is now suffering from delirum

future. McMinn's sudden change from
the wet to the dry column was
brought about this morning at the city
jail when he became disgusted be
cause the attendants around the sta

anything to drink. McMinn has been
confined in the bum cell but last night
he took on one of his crazy spells and
frightened the other prisoners and
had to be removed to a solitary cell.
The man raved in his cell all mcrning.
The police are in a dilemma what to
do with the man. If his condition does
not improve, efforts will be made to
have him sent to the State Inebriate
hospital at Knoxville.
Ottumwa was twice honored this
morning by tbe Christians of Iowa in

was chosen for the Iowa Christian
convention of 1911 and Dr. J. C. Box

Box this morning received a message
from the delegates of the Davis Street

of his election and of the fact that Ot

Springfield. June 30.—The Supreme
court of Illinois lias decided that re
ligious exercises consisting of the
reading of the Bible, singing and pray
er. cannot be held in the public schools
of this state during the time pupils are
required to be in attendance.
The decision was handed down 'in
the case of the Catholic residents of
Winchester, Scott county, who had
protested against religious exercises
held in the school of that district.
Their application for a writ of man
damus to require the board of educa
tion to discontinue the religious serv
ices had been denied by the lower
court, but the Supreme court upholds
their contention and directs the writ
to issue.
The opinion in the case is written by
Justice Dunn. Justices Cartwriirht and
Hand dissent, but have not yet filed
their dissenting opinion. The majority
opinion is a lengthy document reciting
much of history of the separr/Jon of
church and state and quoting at length
from various authorities in rupport of
the decision.
The petition in the ease set up that
the punils at the school were required
each day to hear portions read from
the King .Tames version of the Bible,
that they recited the Kin" James ver
sion of the Lord's Prayer, and that
they sang in concert sacred hymns,
one of which was mentioned "Grace
i'noueh for Me."
"The exercises mentioned.
court says, "constitute worsl.ip. They
are the ordinary forms of worship
usually practiced by Protest.- Christ
ian denominations. Their compulsory
performance would be a violation of
the constitutional guarantee of the
free exercise and enjoyment of re
lisrious profession and worship. One
does not enjn-- the free exercise of re
ligious worship who is "ompelled to
join in any form of religious worship.
"If the exercises of reading the
Bible, joining in prayer and the sing
ing of hymns were performed in a
church there would be no doubt of
their religious character. and that
character is not changed by the place
of their performance. If the petition
ers' children are required to join In
the acts of worship, as alleged in the
petition, against their consent and
against, the wishes of their parents,
they are deprived of the freedom of re
ligious worship guaranteed to them by
the Constitution. The wrong arises,
not out of the particular version of the
Bfbl*1. or form of prayer used, whether
that found in the Douay or the King
James version, or the narticular songs
sung, but out of the compulsion to
join in any form of worshin. The free
enjoyment of religious worship in
cludes freedom not to worship."

Allegations Against the Mayor
Many and Varied Case to Be
Heard Here By Outside
Judge July 11.
The removal of Mayor T. J. Phil
lips from office and the declaring of
the office vacant is sought in a peti
tion receive,i by Judge M. A. Roberts
ye'sterday from Attorney General
W. Byers and filed by Judge Roberts
with the clerk of district court yester
day afternoon about 3:30. Although
the petition recites that the proceed
ings were ordered begun by Governor
B. F. Carroll May 13, -when he took
the matter up with the office of the
attorney general, it was not until yes
terday afternoon that the papers were
filed. The date of the hearing has
been fixed by an order from Judge
Roberts for July 11, at 10 a. m. A
judge from another district will prob
ably be appointed by the supreme court
to hear the case and the appointment
has not yet been announced.
Charges Misconduct.
The petition is a very lengthy one
and covers several pages of typewrit
ten matter. It goes into the adminis
tration of Mayor Phillips, alleging mis
conduct and maladministration in
office. It begins with the statement
that on May 13 a complaint was filed
by certain citizens for the removal of
T. J. Phillips as mayor of Ottumwa.
Alleged Violations.
The petition alleges among other
things that Mayor Phillips has been
cognizant of and failed to prosecute
violations of the liquor law, gambling
and houses of ill fame that he has
known of and failed t.o prosecute
pool and billiard hall proprietors for
permitting minors to frequent and play
the games therein that he ha's will
fully and habitually neglected to per
form his duties as mayor .and is guilty
of corruption in office that he has
been repeatedly in a state of intoxica
tion. and that on April 30 he appeared
on the street in an intoxicated condi
tion, boisterous and using loud and pro
fane language.
The petition asks for his removal
from the office of mayor and that the
office be declared vacant. Affidavits
from the following citizens, all of
whom state that they have seen the
defendant in an intoxicated state, are
appended to the petition: W. H. Keat
ing, E. F. Lowry, W. A. Derby, C. F.
Allen and J. W. Gray.
The original complaint lodged by
the Law and Order league with the
attorney general, signed by Sumner
Siberell, F. W. Darner. Eugene Pierce
and W. W. Rankin, is among the
papers filed.
The petition bears the signatures of
Attorney General H. W. Byers with as
sociates, George Cosson and John
Want Trial Soon.
The following letter accompanied
the petition:
Des Moines, June 28, }910.
Hon. M. A. Roberts, Ottumwa,la.
Dear Sirrf-Herewith find petition in
equity for removal of Mayor Phillips
of Ottumwa. Will you be good enough
to cause the same to be filed and then
prescribe a notice of time and place
of hearing pursuant to the provisions
of section 4, chapter 78. of the Thirty
third general assembly?
It seems to be the desire of the com
plainants in Ottumwa that the cause
be heard as speedily as possible, but of
least ten days.
May Apply for Judge.
The code prescribes no special judge
the for hearing such cases, as the law un-
der which the case has been brought,
is a new and almost untried one. there
being but one similar case thus far
tried, it being the Marengo suit in
which an outside judge was called in
The code provides that the defense in
making its answer to the petition filed
may make application at the same
time for the appointmnt of a judge
other than the local judge to hear the
case. A copy of this application being
sent the attorney general, the supreme
court makes the appointment, but un
til the filing of an answer to the
charges filed, there is little likelihood
of learning who will hear the case. A
rumor has been going about the city
today that Judare F. W. Eichelberger
would hear the case. This however, is
entirely without foundation in fact as
the appointment has to be made by the
supreme r-ourt. It. is not imperative
that, the judge be one of this district,
although such a judge may heaj the
case if chosen and not obected to by
either party to the ease. The prosecu
tion will in all probability be solelv in
the hands of the attorney general as
no communication has been had with
County Attorney Seneca 'ornell rela
to hearing the case. William M-
Ntt. and Judee J. C. Mitchell will de
fend Mayor Phillips.

Roberta Withdraws.
It is evident that the attorney gen
eral had in mind to have Judge Rob
erts hear the case, but feeling that for
certain reasons he was not the proper
person to conduct the proceedings., he
wrote Attorney General H. W. Byers
last evening asking for release from
the case and that, some other judga
hear the matter when It me to trial.
Judge Roberts stated that some of the
charges are such that he has in some
capacity, judicial or advisory been
identified with in the past and in ab
solute fairness to all he desired to have
another judge handle the case. He
likewise stated in the letter to Attor
ne\- General Byers that a judge of this
district would be on hand the day tbe
case came for trial to make such or
ders and otherwise handle the case
pending the appointment if such be
made of an outside judsre to hear the
New York, June 30.—Successive
storms of liquidation swept the stock
market during the morning with lower
prices established with each succes
sive outpouring. Atchison declined
6%, Southern Pacific 6%, Union Pa
cific 6V&, St. Paul, Reading, Northern
Pacific and Canadian Pacific 5 and the
rest of the list dropped from 1 to over
4 points. There are indications that
important market pools have been get
ting go of enormous holdings of stocks
for what they would bring. Bonds
were weak. Shortly after noon there
was a violent upward reaction owing
to the rush of shorts to cover, and
stocks rebounded 1 to 2%.
The drive against the Rock Island,
which sent it down 5%, stopped the
recovery and caused a sharp reaction.
Subsequently the market advanced
again. Undoubtedly much of today's
selling was impelled by the recent de
cisions of the commerce commission
ordering sweeping reductions In
freight charges of transcontinental
It. is now coming to be the prevail
ing belief that bad news which has
not yet been made public, is hanging
over the market. In some quarters it
was believed that the recent reports
about the illness of Mr. Morgan had
more in them than could be told at
times when they came out, only to be
met with denials There are declara*
tions that the financier would shortly
be subjected to an operation, but there
was no means of knowing whether or
not the rumor was occasioned by the
.decline, or whether it had an element
of truth. At. all events the unloading
process appeared to be for some very
substantial reason.
Lynchburg, Va., June 30.—John W.
Daniel, senior senator from Virginia,
died at the Lynchburg sanitarium at
10:25 o'clock last night, his death be
ing due to a recurrence of paralysis.
The immediate cause of his death was
cerebral hemorrhage.
This was Senator Daniel's third par
alytic stroke. He suffered the first
last fall while in Philadelphia and the
second in Daytona, Fla., during the
winter, having gone to Florida to re
cuperate. He had not been in Wash
ington for several months. Senator
Daniel was 67 years old.
With Senator Daniel were his wife
and his son, Edward M. Daniel, and
his daughter Mrs. Fred Harper, whose
husband, also here, Is Senator Daniel's
law partner.
Belonged to Old Regime,
The death of Senator John War-
wick Daniel removes the oldest of the
vice. Of the entire list he was the
only one wno could be said to belong
to tlie old regime. And, as he was the
oldest in service, he was one of the
most conspicuous in popular favor.
For the past few years hs had re
mained much in the background. His
health had not been good and his grow
ing years semed to tell on him. He
was not. heard often in the senate, and
his recent effort*: were not. his best.
But previous to this period he spoke
frequently and held high reputation
as an orator. In those earlier days
his speeches were the signal for the
gathering of large audiences, and by
mai\y as an orator he was ranked with
Voohees, Ingalls. Wolcott and Vest.
Was "Free cilver" Enthusiast.
A man of extensive reading, liberal
education and retentive memory, he
commanded a voluminous vocabulary.
He spoke fluently and with ease, and
seemed never at a loss for something
pertinent to say. He was a strong
advocate of free siive- coinage and
took a permlnent part, in the debates
connected with the silver legislation
of the '90's.
^Senator Daniel was the only son of
William Daniel. Jr., vho for years was
a member of the Virginia svpreme
court. His mother was Sarah Ann
Warwick. He was born in Lynchburg
Sept. 5. 1842. On Nov. 24. 1°69, he
married Julia Elizabeth Murrell,
daughter of Dr. E. H. Murrell of

Fort Madison, June 30.—The local
penitentiary authorities deny the Mt.
Pleasant report that Junkin had made
arrangements to dispose of his body
to the Drake university for a stated
sum. It was reported that a physician
representing the medical school, had
been at the institution, conferred with
the officials and Junkin and in return
for the payment of $50, which the
prisoner was making use of, had been
promised the remains of the murderer.
It was authoritatively stated that
so far as the prison people know, no
such doctor as the one mentioned has
been around the place, much less buy
ing the dead body of a live man.
No One May 8«e Junkin.
No one is permitted to see Junkin
without an order from the warden
and the warden denys that any medi
cal men have approached him or made
arrangements for such a plan.
With but a few days remaining the
negro is given what he wants when
ever his desires are reasonable. He is
given food but has been denied re
quests for liquor.
Death Watch Abolished.
It has been the custom to set a
death watch over a condemned man
about, a month before his execution.
It is not a law but a method usually
observed. Just now, however, the
prison has but a limited force of
guards, scarcely permitting putting
on a shift for the watch. Warden
Sanders has written the board of
control concerning the situation and
unless they order to the contrary it is
more than likely that the habit will
be dispensed with.
