Mr. .IikIiI h Prupoiltion HtJfcCed l»y the
Con ventiou.
Cm«'A«iO, October 1»».—The tuileries
and lobby of the Central Music Hall were
crowded to the utmost, this morning, when
the Protestant Episcopal Convention
qwaed, asitww known that the great
dehate on Mr. Jodd's proposition to drop
the "Protectant Episcopal," in designa
ting the church, would clos«.*. Morning
prayer was said by Rev. Hohart Cbetwood,
of California, ami the benediction was
pronounced by Bishop Tuttle of Missouri.
The discussion was opened by J)r,
-Stringtellow, of Alabama, who argued for
a postponement of the consideration of the
question on the ground that the time was
not ripe. Rev. Mr. Stoddard, of Northern
New Jersey, held to the same view. Mr.
McConnell, of Louisiana, bitterly oppose«!
the proposition to change the name of the
church, and l>r. Sheffield, of Virginia, took
the same view. The debate was then
cloned by Mr. Jodd. who contended that
the opposition did not represent the pro
gressive spirit which should actuate the
church. The church .should take on its
broad and true name, and this was not to
be confounded with Romanism. Mr. Judd
spoke for twenty minutes considering the
question from all points, and when the
hour of 11 o'clock lud arrived the debate
was declared closed and .ho balloting com
menced amid absolute silence.
The names of the clerical delegates were
called tirst, and were quite evenly divid
ed on the proposition, but the sentimeut
of the lay delegates was generally opposed
to the proposition. The vote by dioceses
was as follows: Forty-nine dioceses voting,
» majority of the clericals in 17 dioceses
voted aye; »majority voted no in 22 dio
ctfles, and 10 dioceses were erenlv divided.
In forty-four dioceses the majority of lay
delegates in 11 dioceses voted aye and in
29 dioceses voted no, and in four were ev
enly divided- The total vote was: Ayes.
112; nays, 1S». The Southern delegates
generally voted in favor of the resolution,
and the Eastern dioceses against it. The
comparatively strong vote in favor of the
proposition was a surprise to the conven
The report of the Joiut Committee on
Liturgical Revision was submitted and
laid on the table to await the action of the
House of Bishop«. The report is one of nn
usaal length, embodying numerous me
morials for a revision of the prayer book.
The convention theiyodjonrned until next
Monday. m

; Eighty-Five More Lives Added to the Enor
mous List
Two Whole Towns Swept Away and Onlj
Forties Bodies Recovered.
Nkiv Orleans, October 16.—A dis
patch to the Times-Demoeràt, dated John
sod's Bayou, October 15, aays: ' The vil
lage of Johnson's Bayon is a high ridge on
the sea coast, and the bayou from which il
takes its name runs through the inhabita
ble partâof that section of the settlement,
in which is alio situated the postofhce
station known as Kadtord. They art» in
Cameron parish on the Louisiana' shore,
six miles east of Sabine Pass. The Bay
ou is nineteen miles in length and varies
from one to four miles in width. Ridges
face the gulf twelve feet above the sea
level, and in the rear is a dense and im
penetrable marsh. The population ou
last Tuesday morning numbered twelve
hundred souls. To-day eighty-five of that
number are counted with the dead. For
ty bodies have been found and consigned
to graves in the shell reefs, while the de
composing corpses of the remaining forty
five lie festering in the marshes.
Radford was very thickly settle«! and
populous. It boasts of its cotton gin and
cotton and cane plantations. It was tht
head of navigation and the stores wert
many. Principal among these were those
rnn by J. Paverto, who also operated a
gin and turned out annually 8l>0 bales ol
cotton praduced in that section. The
other stores were owned by A. B. Smith
& Co. and J. Griffith, general mercliandise,
and other small merchants constituted tht
commercial community. The handling ol
cotton and sugar cine produced in thai
district was the principal industry. Thest
ridges compose«! some of the richest and
mo«t fertile grazing land in the conntry,
*,(MK) head of cattle and horses beiny
owned by the thriving community. Com
munication with the outer world was had
through two steam vessels, l>oth owned iu
in.Johnson's Bayou and Radford, while a
fleet of trading vessels plied the waters ol
the bayou.
Such was picturesque Johnson's Bayox,
or rather a series of ridges over which 1,*200
population were
j on the worniug of Tuesday last. Happi
[ ness ami contentment was the lot of Un
people until four o'clock that evening.
When the storm descended upon them
everyIkxIv took to their homes and waited
with hated hreuth the late which they
foresaw. The waters began risipg, the
wind swept through the lower stories of
buildings, driving the atVrighted people in
to attics and upon roofs. By 10 o'clock
the tirst ridge, which was twelve feet above
the sea level, was ten feet under water.
House alter house fell in, cr was
swept away, either burying the
doomed people in the debris or hurling
them into the hissing waters. Cotton
warehoused and stores next succumbed,
aud Radford and Johnson's Bayou were
destroyed as completely as if an invading
army had done the work. It was a night
of terror. descril>ed by survivor? as appall
iug. People elunu to each o'her and
prayed for mercy and for the sou's of those
whose despairing shrieks rang on their
ears. For twelve hours the sto:>n raged
over the devoted settlements :»ud then
there came a lull, when the wateii receded
and the storm passed away. Ti>" survi
vors gathered on the most elevaU[1 points,
viewiug the scene of desolatioi* around
them. The houses tliat hail stoor the ac
tion of the storm were completely^ gutted.
There was no food nor drink; suit water
having evaded everything. Tfien the
search for the dead began.
Those whose bodies lay pinioned by the
ruins of houses were speedily recovered.
From out of the marshes more corpses
were taken aud likewise buried.

Yesterday morning the regular packet
stern wheel steamer called the Emily P.,
arrived at Johnson's Bayou and brought
to Orange as many as she could carry—
about sixty-people. Not one of them had
anything but what they stood in, and
many of them were minus hats, shoes,
coats aud dresses. Their wants were
promptly supplied by the pcopleof Orauge,
and the refugees were made comfortable
for the night. This (Saturday l morning
the Kmily P. and the steamer I.ark will
return, and from thence make regular
trips until all are brought to a place of
safety. AU the people, save a few who
have large stock interests, say they have
abandoned the place forever. They are
descendants of a race of people who in the
past made Johnson's Bayou a vast orange
grove. Frost came and ruined them, and
then they turned to cotton and sugar aud
stock raising, ouly to meet the fate of their
forefathers. Of tho 8,000 head ot stock
which once the bayou boasted, 0,006 are
drowned, while the remainder will die ot
thirst, as all the water is salt
J. Spencer, one of the inhabitants of the
place, says this is his third storm he has
experienced, having been through the storm
at Morganthaw iu June last, and at lndian

is to say that th» towns are destroyed and
abandoned. _____
At Sabin« P»** -Fifteen Cory««* Found
Appeal* for Help.
HorsroK, Tex., October 16.—The fol
lowing dispatch was received from Beau
mont late last night: 'The train which
went to wan! Sabine to-day as far as the
track allowed, returned here at 8 p. m.
Fifteen bodies were recovered on the high
land called Back Bridge, west of Sabine,
and were buried. Six bodies of women
were recovered on the west shore of th«
lake, two colored and four white, one be
ing that of Mrs. W. A. Junker, of Carlisle.
Mr. Junker is still n.issing.
A telegram from merchants of Galveston
taihe Keliet Committee here says: ''Gal

Hubchings & Company for that amount.'
The Mexican schooner Hercules is h igt
and dry at a point called the Oil Ponds.
Her captain, Joe. Guibelondo, reporta thai
be was bound for New Orleans with 15C
mahogany logs, all of which are supposed
! to be lost. The captain and crew wert
furnished by the railroad company with
passes to New Orleans, and left to-night.
A cfreular will be address«! by the Fi
nance Committee to the principal business
houses in the leading trade centre« of the
i country. While subscriptions from local
' and neighboring points have been free and
] liberal, they are sufficient only to supply
! the requirements of a few days. It is de
! sired to urgently impress upon the people
! of Texas and elsewhere the immediate
: necessity of responding at once to the de
I manda of this calamity. Conservative es
timates place the loss at such ligures that
it will require from $75,000 to $100,000 to
meet the emergencies of the case.

A Schooner Adrift in a Gale.
Rochester, N. Y., October 16.—The
severe gale of the last two days, which did
so much damage at some of the lake ports,
did little injury in Rochester or vicinity.
Although a heavy see was running ou the
lake at Charlotte yesterday it did little
harm. A large -ihrce-masted schooner
running for shelter failed to make the har
bor at Charlotte and drifted rapidly to the
leeward of the piers. She got out an an
chor, but it did not hold when the wind
shitted to the northwest and the vessel
was evidently dragging her anchor. Her
name was not learned. A tug offered as
sistance, but it was declined. Another
schooner, supposed to be to be the Queen
of the Lake, anchored to the windward
of the piers, being unable to make the
Storm Dtmage in Michigan.
Detroit, October 15.—Reports are
slowly coming in of damage by the storm.
In most cases the damage is to fences,
trees, roofs, etc. The gale blew up the
river, and the water in Lake St. Clair was
raised to an unprecedented height, being
five feet seven iuches higher than ever be
fore known. Heavy losses are reported
all along the shores of the lake,
particularly ou the American side
between Fair Haven and New Halto.
The water extended a mile and a half npon
the land and floated awav much valuable
timber and numerous small houses. The
docks at Fair Haven and Sehoors Mills
were damaged to the extent of $5.000.
Tug McRae had her upper works smashed
in and lost her anchor. The sloop yacht
Tnrk, of Detroit, was carried away by the
water and finally lodged in an orchard 120
feet from shore. Fields were generally

Proceeding* of the Ciosiux Se»*ion of The
Friends of Poor Lo.
Lakk Mohoxk, N. V., October 1<».—
The first topic at yesterday's session of the
Lake Molionk Conference was the Mission
Indians of California. Mrs. Hi les, of Mil
waukee, who has taken up the work inter
rupted by the death ot Helen Hunt Jack
son, «ave a thrilling narrative of the pit
iful condition of affairs in Southern Cal
ifornia, as witnessed by her. She thought
the case almost hopeless, unless a first
class anil incorruptible attorney is obtained
to conduct the fight to regain possession
of the lands from which the Indians have
been driven.
Senator Dawes thought the passage of
the hill in the House, in reference to their
case, would right their wrongs without
hiring an attorney. Several persons ex
presse«! the opinion that it was useless to
await Government action. The question
of hiring counsel was finally referred to a
special committee.
The remainder of the session, which
closed the conference, was devoted to the
discussing of various phases of the <|ues
tion of Indian citizenship and civilization,

between Secretary Lamar and the Princi

statement calling on Congress to p;iss the

Four Independents Get "There -The Lead
ing Parties Tied.
gi'KBCC, Can., Octol»er 15.—The terri
ble storm of Thursday so demoralized the
telegraph service of the Province that it
is only now that particulars of the elec
tion are being received. The returns arc
now sufficiently known to show that there
is a tie between the Liberals and Conserva
tives, thirty-nine supporters of each party
being returned. The Independent Na
tional party carried four members, leav
ing it to those members to decide which
party is in the majority. The Kiel affair
was used by the Liberals and Nationals to
influence the French rural districts, and
was successful in carrying fourteen coun
ties which previously returned supporters
of the local Government.
In eachof the three divisions in this
city a labor candidate was proposed by the
Knights of I^bor and other organizations,
but none was elected. The Conservatives
are treating with the four Nationalists,
who were formerly staunch Conservatives,
and if they coalesce a majority will be se
cured and the present Cabinet, with some
slight modification, will continue in

WASHINGTON, D. C., October IB.—The
Acting Secretary of the Treasury has issued
a circular calling the attention of collec
tors of customs and others to the recent
proclamation by the President reviving
discriminating duties and against imi
tations in Spanish vessels. He says that
in view of the provisions of the proclama
tion the discriminating duties imposed
by section 2051 revised statutes will be
levied in addition to the others imposed
by law on all goods imported into the
United States under the Spanish flag from
Cuba and Porto Kico, on and alter the

It says that the army represents the De

than toward war. It regret«« that the

Three Thousand Rifles Per Week.
London, October 16.—lu order to gain
some information .in reference to the Ger
man repeating rifle which is the subject of
so rnncb comment in army circles at pres
ent, your correspondent paid a visit to Col.
Arbuthnot. the chief of the Government's
small arms factory at Entield, Middlesex,
to-day. The Colonel said he believed
that the rule of self-preservation would
J eventually compel all the great nations to
j adopt a magazine ritle for their armies.
He had recently made a tour of Germany,
I enquiring into the merits of the German
' gun. and Iiis observations led him to this
. beliei. The German* are sauguine that
j their new weapon will prove to l>e the
most startling and effective manual im
j plement of modern warfare, and will form
' the basis for future experimenting in the
j science of close range gunnery. Col. Ar
! buthnot said he doubted the statement
j that the German Government had already
! completed 100,000 of the rifles. He
thought that was an exaggeration, but he
! knew that they were now making from 2,
II »00 to :t,000 per week.
j The new rifle, the Colonel said was nec
I essarilv heavy and would prove a severe
strain on a soldier. In lighting in close
quarters it would probably equal the Mar
tini-Heflry rifle in effectiveness. He did
not think the repeater would induce men
! to lire recklessly during au engagement,
1 but, on the contrary, it was much more
I likely to inspire confidence. Men disliked
j rapid tiring anyhow, as the excessive use
I of the muscles brought into play produced
I lameness in the shoulder. The new re-1
pcating rifle would not allow accurate aim I
! beyond a distance of ">00 yards.
"The great poiut we are striving at here !
) in Enfield," said Colonel Arbuthnot in j
I conclusion,' and the one which has en
I g.iged most of our time, is to modify the
I trajectory so tliat it will enable aiming j
: without, or almost without, sights. I be- j
I lieve our new weapon will be the liest |
.single-shooting rifle producabie, but it has
not yet reached beyond the experimenting j
stage. Our committee of experts sits daily,
and improvements are constantly lieing

CuREA, October lli.—Cholera is still
raging fiercely in C'orea. No idea can be
formed of the extent of the scourge. It
has more than decimatcd the capital,
where, out of a population of 200,000, the
death rate rules at the frightful average of
a thousand per day. Nearly a million
people have been swept away already, and
it is hard to say where the plague will stop.
Cerea is described as '"an appalling pest
Never was there a more frightful record
of the ravages of disease on mankind. The
story of the plague of London is beggared
by what is now going on in Seoul. They
are beginning to give over the task of
burying the dead, and the city is threat
ened with positive extinction.
Remarks a Stockman—Packingtown I
Chicago, October lti.—"It is war now :
lor sure." said a stockman, as he stood on
tbe Transit House stops at fi o'clock this
this morning, after breakfast. At this
hour, luuallyso marked by the crowds of
meu on their way to work, there was little
sign of life on the streets. Where a week
ago thousands of men trowed through the
big gate leading to the yards, scarcely a
dosen at a time could be seen. Over in
the exchange building, usually teeming
with cattle buyers and seilen», at this early
hour, eager and noisy as so may lloard of
Trade speculators, tbe great hall was al
most deserted. A passenger train came
in on the Michigan Southern tracks, but
instead of pulling up on the usual side
track at the depot, the engine kept on
on around '"the horn," and took the three
coaches up Forty-seventh street and stop
at the alley which leads down to Armour
it Co.'s houses. Nearly JOU men alighted
and wal <cd to tbe office, where they were
given jumpers and overhauls and set to
work in the old house.
The precautious for
of the packers hav« been greatly increased.
In the Town 1 fall are a score of cots on
which the regular police sleep. Telegraph
wires lead to each of the packing houses,
and night and day an operator is on duty.
The watchmen at the packing houses re
port by signal to the telephone office every
half hour, and the patrol wagon crew is
readv for duty at a moment's notice. Elec
tric lights bave l»een hung throughtall the
alleyways and illaminate every nook and
corner, turning the durkest night into the
brightest day. Last, but by no means least
in the protective measures is the Piftkerton
force. Their barracks in Washington
Butcher's Sons' pac king house present* the
appearance of a military camp. All through
the day and night sentinels armed with
their Winchester rifles walk up and down
! the alleyways which surround it. The
striker« have extended the boycott until
; <t is now au ahso]nte*impoat<bility for a
j 1'inkerton to purchase anything in the
neighborhood. It is understood that the
j IMnkertou army is being recruited, and
, that the force will be largely increased on
m Armour's bouse this morning, but no
killing was done. Preparations were appar
ently being pushed for starting up in all
branches Monday, though the statement
was made on seemingly good authority
that no killing woald be done with tbe
green hands nntil a settlement had been
demonstrated to be impossible. The men
j were at work in Swift's and Morris' bouses
contrary to the reported probability. They
I will not be called oat so long as they work
! independently of other packers.
"Have yon any news this morning?"
was asked of delegate Barry, as be,» with
Master Workman Bntler, and Mr. Sawyer,
said to represent the Packers Association,
was about to enter his room at the Transit
House this morning.
♦"No. nothing new."
"When do you go away?"
This in no very decided tone, as though
be hated to leave without some settlement
or basis for more decided action has been
The letters from the packers, in which
they state their fall « ympethy with tbe
ten hoar system, published in the morning
papers, are a great surprise to the strikers,
and threats of closing Swift's and Morris'
houses are heard on all sides. Tho mem
j bers of the Executive Board, which have
the matter in hand, refuse to commit
. themselves on the subject, but !
! it is pretty generally conceded that,
the two bouses will be closed be-(
lore long. A prominent commission man
; thought this was part of the plans of the
; packers, who, when all union men stopped ,
work, would place a picket line of Pinker
ton men around the yards and keep out
all outsiders. A few cattle were slaught
j cred in Armour's new house this forenoon
; probably to drill the new butchers. The
; impression prevails that Armour will
i start up Monday with a full force of im
1 ported men. Another batch arrived on \
; the Lake Shore dummy this morning.
The usual crowds remained in the j
vicinity of the packing houses to-day, and
besought all men who could be reached !
not to go to work. Many applicants for !
work, however, went out on the regular :
and special passenger trains and
were landed at the doors of
the packing houses, which were1
guarded by armed patrols. The strikers
stopped a wagon containing clothing and j
bedding for the Pinkerton men just out
side the city limits to-day and handled
the driver roughly, throwing the clothing
into the street A wagon loaded with
bread for Pinkerton guards was stopped I
outside the city limits and when the po- j
lice arrived the wagon had disappeared.

Minneapolis, October 16.—The switch
men's strike sLmds in statu quo. Super
intendent Kgau, of the Manitoba road,
complains that a crowd of two hundred
strikers this afternoon uncoupled cars,
killed engines of a train load of wheat
that the company were trying to move;
also that the police refused to interfere
and Mayor Ames c mnot lie found. He
says: "We have not hail any trouble in

they are doing it."
In St. Paul tiains are Wing moved and
the places of strikers are l»eing filled by

ated My the I'nion Coal and Mineral Min
ing Company met at Fxcelsior to-day to
to take action to secure the restoration of
the ten per cent reduction made at those
miues in January of last year. On the
question of ordering a general strike in
case the operators refused advance, there
was almost a unanimous l>ollot in favor of
it. A committee ol "seven one from each ;
colliery was appointed to notify the mine !
official* of the action. In case a strike;
should he ordered three thousand hands
will be effected by it.
KicIIMOXI), Va., October 16.—Fire was j
discovered shortly before 10 o'clock last
night on the main floor of Armory Hall,
where the Geueral Assembly, Knights of I
Labor, sits. It had already made its way
between the beams below the flooring, and
the firemen had difficulty in getting at it.
The damage will be al>ont When
the General Assembly adjourned last even
ing, it was not expected that final adjourn
ment could be taken until next week, and
arrangements had been made to continue
in possession of the Armory until Thurs
day next. The occurrence of the fire will
probably interfere with this, as it will be
necessary to have the damage it caused re
paired Ix-fore Friday, when the State Fair !
will take possession, and the Oeneral As
sembly can not sit while repairs are in pro-1
It has been determined that the many
propositions made and not acted upon in |
the revision of the constitution shall be ;
referred hack to the local assemblies for |
ratification. There will be |i
made in the by-laws or constitution here.
The salaries of officers; the lwycott: the!
place for locating the general officers, aud
some other matters will l»e acted ujK»n be- J
fore adjournment. Since the excitement
incident to the election of officers has worn
away, and many of the most positive char- 1
acters in debate have left the city, - U tter
feeling prevails—in fact, almost perfect
harmony—aud work will progress rapidly.
The way matters stand now the conven
tion may run in the middle of next week,
and may finally adjourn upon a few mo
ments' notice at any moment. The va
rious pla us for basing representation in
general conventions are to come up next.
There is jierfect unanimity in the demand i
for a much smaller representation in the <
next convention. This convention has a <
delegate for every 1,000 or fraction of a <
1,000. The most popular suggestion is the
one giving delegates to ever}' 2,.VW mem- I
bers. I

Delegate I>ewey's scheme to establish a |
grand central labor organ was laid on the !
table this morning. The mont serious oh- .
iertion to it was that it would create a
monopoly, since it« support would be com- i
pnlsorr. and there are already in existence i
a numlier of labor newspapers which de- <
pend upon their merits for support. i
The section of the report of the Commit
tee on Laws, relating U» the duties of the '
General Officers was adopted.
Mr. Powderly was ill this forenoon and
did not attend the convention. Grand
Worthy Foreman Griffiths presided. Grand
Secretary Litchman says the convention
will likely adjonrn sine die on Tuenday
General Treasurer Turner left here thin
morning for Philadelphia, where more than i
$•20.000 worth of money orders arc await
ing his signature. He will return on Mon- ;
At this afternoon's session considera
tion of the report on
as it came from the hands of the Commit
tee on Law, was continued.
Section 1, relating to name, jurisdiction j
and membership, passed without action. !
Sec. 2, treating of meetings of the general
assembly and representation was amended
so as to change the basis of representation
from one delegate for each thousand mem- '
l*rs to one for every 3,000 and to make an
allowance for mileage, payable by the j '
general assembly. It was then adopted, j
Section 3, treating of General Assembly
was adopted after two clauses had been
amended so as to read: "Any generali
officer, whether a representative o» not is
eligible to a re-election," and "Any rep
resentative to this General Assembly or
past general officer is eligible to re-election
for any office in the General Assemby ex
cept that of General Master Workman."
In the clause of Section 4, relating to
dnties of officers, an amendment made by
which in case of death, resignation or re
moval of the General Master Workman,
the General Worthy Foreman shall suc
ceed to and perform all dptiea and become
General Master .Workman until
the next meeting of Aie General Assembly,
when there shall be an election to fill the
position. In 8ec. 9, relating to State As
semblies, amendments were adopted by
which the formation of State Assemblies is
made optional instead of compulsory.
Further amendments were adopted by
which the jurisdiction of existing
District Assemblies remains unchanged
unless they themselves consent
to change. The General Assembly also
resolved not to interfere with national
trade districts, and an amendment in the
sections relating to them was adopted,
providing thai no local assembly shall b«
compelled to join a district assembly, thus
permitting trade local assemblies to retain
their independence.
Another amendment which was adopt
ed, provided for an interchange of working
cards, with trade unions agreeing to re
ciprocate by receiving Knights of Labor
cards. The General Assembly adjourned
until Monday, when such portions of the
revision of the Constitution as it is deter
mined to act on at the present session will be
disposer of. Business was transacted with
such despatch in the afternoon that some
delegates entertain hopes of an adjourn
ment Monday evening. A number of del
egates left here for their homes to-day but
the great majority of them will carry out
their determination to remain until the
work of^he convention is concluded.

Washington*, D. C., October, 16.—The
Presidential hunting and fishing party re
turned to Washington from Komney, W.
Va, at an early hour this morning. Thej
had a thoroughly enjoyable trip, and tak
ing into consideration the unfavorable
state of the weather, were fortunate in
the catch of fish. The head, antlers and
skin of a tine ''white deer," (said to be a
rare species, ; killed by oue of the party,
were brought in by Commissioner Miller
and lay on a window sill iu his office
to-day. The animal was driven
into the water by the dogs
and made a gallant struggle
for his life, wounding severely two of the
hounds but was dually killed at rather
long range by a rifle shot of Mr. Rivina
Harring a brief entanglement of a promin
