FOE AFTERNOON SERVICE Many Events That Occur During a Day are Told Promptly by the Herald Much News of Interest to the Read ers of This Paper. The Spanish Situation. LONDON, October 26. The Times this morning publishes a dispatch re ceived from Madrid which says the general situation presents almost an unrelieved gloom. Officers are declar ing against American mediation aid recognize the rejection of the proffer ed good offices of tbe United States may mean successively the recognition of tbe insurgents as be'ligerents, a rupture of diplomatic relations and finally war. It is a dangerous error to suppose Spanish are in a position to run a bluff. The Spaniards know well what would be tbe result -in the long run, but nevertheless a war with the United States does not frighten them If Cuba be lo?t as they believe, it would be better through a war than by pusillanimous submission to an agres sive power. The Cornrnissi'n Undecided. London, October 26. The American monetary commission, who have been unsuccessfully negotiating with the government in the interest of the free coinage of silver, are yet undecided whether to continue their representa tions in Europe or to return home with out further action, after considerable discussion between Ambassador Hay and commissioners upon subject of the reply to the British cabinet.

Setta Low may gain tbe mayoralty of the Greater New York but if he wins it is simply a way station on the road to the pre sidency is the drift of much political gossip. Senator Piatt has expressed the opinion that Cleveland and Low will unite their influence to capture the presidential nomination in 1900, but whether Cleveland or Law will get the benefit of influence is not stated. The Embezzler. Paris, October 26. Duncan R. Norell a clerk of tbe gratuity fund on the Proiuce Exchange of New York today fully identified Wm.

' Irivh Orangemen. London, October 26. At tbe in stance of William Johnston, leader of the Irish Orangemen and member of parliament for South Belfast, the na tional conference of Orangemen is to be held in this city next month for the purpose of bringing pressure to bear on the government for the suppression of the proposed celebration next year of the centenary of the great Irish rebel lion of 1798, and fo? which the whole Irish world is now in a ferment of preparation. Johnston has a'aeady baa interviews with several members of the government, but is ucderstood to have received but little encourage ment and hence he has called the Orangemen element to his aid. He is a fanatic on the subjects of Orangeism and anti-Home Rule, and as be i?. moreover, a fighter to tbe lat ditch. he is likely to occasion tbe government considerable embarrassment. Mem bers of the celebration executive com mittee, however, say that his antagon ism will only stimulate the Irish the world over toward greater efforts tj make the demonstration a gigantic suc cess. After the Standard Oil. London, October 26 It can be stattd on high authority that upon the re-assembling of parliament the eelect committee of the house of commons. which has for over a year been engag ed in investigating the subject of ex plosive oils, will report in favor of a bill raising the flash point of American oils to 105 degrees The appointment of the committee was brought about by the large number of deaths and acci dents occasioned by tbe explosion of low grade American oils in household lamps, and a number of casualties from this srource has been abnormally large since the appointment of the commit tee. A large number of radical pa pers, moreover, have for a year, kept up a continuous "hue and cry" against American "trust" oils, and the committee is believed to have been in fluenced thereby. The proposed bill will doubtless be vigorously resisted in the interest of the Standard Oil com pany, which, it is understood, is in a position to use considerable influence with members of the house of com mons. Institutional Cburch League. Brooklyn. N. Y , October 26 The fifth annual convention of tbe Open and Institutional Cburch League, which opens in the First Presbyterian church, tonight, has at tracted to this city a large number of representative divines of many deno minations.

New York, October 26. -Silver 58 1 ASSOCIATION Its Members Come From Mexico, ada and the Several States Can- PHILADELPHIA, Pa., Oct. 26. Several hundred members of the medi cal profession, most of them dis tinguished in sanitary science and en joying a national reputation, assembled here today in the annual convention of the American Public Health Associa tion. The organ'zition is internation al in scope, embracing the United States," i he Dominion of Canada and the Republic of Mexico. This is the twenty-fifth or silver jubilee conven tion of the body, and it is more largely attended than any of its predecessors. This year the convention comes to Philadelphia on the invitation of Mayor Warwick and the municipal au thorities, acd the Quaker City, true to her reputation of hospitality, has ex tended a hearty welcome to her guests. The programme of the four-days' ses sions was not completed until a late hour last night. It embraces im portant reports on the pollution of water supplies, public health legisla tion, the cause and prevention of in fectious diseases and - infant mortality, methods of international arrangement for protection against the transmission of infectious diseases, car, steamboat and steamship sanitation, the preven tion of the spread of yellow fever "and the transportation and disposal of the dead The convention was called to order by the retiring president, Gen eral D. Hortbeck of Charleston, S. C. In connection with the convention there is an exhibition of medical ap pliances and also a display by leading boards of health and health authori ties of the methods of their bacterialo gical laboratories for the better ex amination of cases suspected to be diphtheri and other contagious dis eases. The methods of work )n vogue in different cities vary considerably, and the exhibits afford an opportunity for comparison that has not bafore been offered. All the leading health laboratories controlled by municipal authorities are represented, tbe Pitts burg Bureau of Health, especially, having a very large exhibit. THE UNFROCKED PASTOR. The Appeal of Dr. C. O. Brown Charged With Gross Immorality. Chicago, 111., Oct. 26 The celebrat ed case of Rev. Dr. U. O. Brown of San Francisco, who was suspended from the ministry in that city a year ago in the result of the finding of an ec clesiastical council, wnich failed to ex onerate him from coarges of gross im morality, is revived by the assembling here today, as a final court of appeal, of a Council of Eleven, which will go over the case, its decision being final. Tne issue to be tried by the council is as follows: "Wad the Bay conference justified in suspending Rev. C. O. Brown, D. D. without trial and after the hading of the council?" Dr. Brown has recently been acting as pas tor of the Green Street church of this city. At the time of the investigation in ban h rancisco the case attracted na tional attention on account of the sen sational character of the evidence. The personnel of the council is this: Appointed by both parties: Rev. Ar thur Little, Dorchester, Mas. Appointed by Dr. Brown: Rev. J. B. Silcox, Chicago; Rev. George R. Wal lace, Chicago: Rev. W. A. Waterman, Chicago; Rev. Philip Krohn, Chicago; Rav. John T. Blanchard, Aurora, 111. Appointed by Bay Conference; Rev. Washington Gladden, Columbus, Ohio; Rev. Michael Burnhsm, St. Louis, Mo.; Kev. George R. Merrill, Minne apolis, Minn.; Rev. Nehemiah Boyn ton, Detroit, Mich.; Rav. D. F. Brad ley, Grand R ipids, Mich. The Council meets at the instance of Dr. Brown who is regarded as an "un frocked pastor" by tne Congregational ists of the Pacific coast, who are oppos ed to him. Should the verdict be in favor of tbe California conference his present charge will have' to face the al ternative, either of dispensing with his pastorate or withdrawing from fra- ternal a'THiation with the Congrega tionalist body. Appointments. Washington, Oct. 28. The ap pointmeul Medical Director Van Rypen as surgeon general of the navy was announced at the white house today, ; also W. B. Sorrsby, of Mississippi, to be consul at San Juan, Nicaragua; W. It. Gay, to be United fctatss attorney, for the state of Washington. j AMERICAN HEALTH The Limited arrived from the east last eveniDg right on time, but with only twelve passengers. The heft of travel at present iseerns to be eastward bound, as the east bound trains are paying from tbe start, while tbe west bound are not, so far. But railroad men say the com Ids: of November with its steady cold frosty weather will send many ppople west to the balmv atmos phere of the Pacific coast, and west bound travel will shortly pick up. A fine snap shot of the Sunset Limited running at 60 miles an hour, was taken the other day at San Elizario by Herbert Bishop of this city. promising young amateur photo grapher. The picture was so well taken that, with the train running even at that high rate of spead, tbe running gear of the engine showed up as clear as though the train had been at a stand still. But the trailing smoke and tbe dust that enveloped the rear car evidenced that tbe train was doing anything but standing still. A G. H. conductor "sat at meat" the other evening with a friend, and ap peared to be wrapped in gloomy silence. Suddenly as he shifted a generous chunk of beefsteak and onions from one jaw to the other, he remarked in most mournful, sepulchral tone, to bis friend, ' Just think on't; our peo ple snent $30,000 in advertising the Sun set L'mited and now they've turned it over to the T. & P." Tbe situation seem ed too grievous to be borne, and silence 'brooied over the face of the deep" for fifteen full minutes. "Words could not do the subject justice." The White Oaks Starts Locating. The engineer corps of the White Oaks railroad started out today to be gin permanent locations for the line of tbe road. They begin work at Fort Bliss acd will continue locating tbe first one hundred miles. Sixteen men now compose the first corps in the field but other corps will be sent out as soon Las needed. Several grading contractors are in the city ready to bid just as soon as tbe engineer corps are far enough advanc ed so that contracts can be let. The maximum grade for the first one hundred miles will be one per cent and there will be only a small amount of bridge and trestle work; in fact all the bridges on the first division will be low trestles. Badly Scared. While the Sunset was running at eighty miles an hour the other night down on the joint track, a passenger in the composite car bad his attention called to the speed indicator. Up to this time he bad not been aware wheth er the train was going at a rate of forty miles an hour or fourteen. But the moment he saw the indicator, he be came badly frightened. Finally he got so bad that he 3 lost control of bis nerves, broke forth into weeping, and besought Conductor-Bacon to pull the bell rope and have the eneineer slow up the train. He had an idea that the train was going straight to the"demni tion bowwows." Mr. Bacon did not put his arm around the frightened traveler and tell him sympatnizingly "jest be caam and cool."". No, he gave him tbe merry ha-ha, and told bim that be was just as safe as though he were in his own borne, sleeping in his own bed. Several others of the pas sengers became alarmed when it was noised through tbe train how "the Kid" was pulling the throttle on the engine footboard. But "quietras restored." To Avoid Hot Boxes Engine 1390 running west from here with tbe flyer, is equipped with special oiling and cooling devices which will obviate the necessity of many a slow down or trouble on account of hot journals. For instance tin funnels are set uprignt just insiae ine cross neaa guides and connected with tubes which open immediately over the truck box es. Thus either engineman can from the running board fill the funnels from the long nosed oil can and lubricate the journals at any time. Then there is an iron and rubber tube device through which water can ba turned by means of a faucet, directly upon the boxps when heated up. "Kid" Hadlock of the T. & P. flyer would like to bave something of tbe same nature on his engine 188; and taking Supt. Ward gently by the arm last evening after the flyer had arrived from the east, whispered softly in his ear, "Come hither, sweet child of nature, 'till I show you a thing or two." Aod then Supt. Ward was shown the devices refered to on the S. P. engine. The official thoughtfully scratched the two day's growth of beard on his Roman chin, and said well, be'd think about it. It has been snowirg in Santa Fe. Xayl uuLkes the food pare, wholoMomo and deliotoafb P017DER Absolutely Pure MVAL tAMlM MWM CO.. NCW VOMC.
