IIIKKLE'8 OBNATE RITUAL, Givciv Promise of Thoroughly Dc Htroyinj; tho Christian Bjiirit oX " I'rotrreBflivo Religion." Cleveland, 0., Maroh 20. Thoro is serious trouble in Graco Episcopal Church hero. Somo monthB ago tho pastor of tho church, Rov. Dr. Hinklc, established a confessional similar to thoso in tho Catholio Churoh and claimed it was according to tho ritual of tho churoh. Tho matter has raised a tremendous row in tho congregation, and thero are now two opposing factions in tho church. Thoso belonging to what is known as the Ilinklo congregation are livo, zealous, energetic of tho church, who aro rathor favorable to claborato ritualistic proceedings. The othor side aro opposed to an ornato ritual as represented by tho pastor, and Baid to bo in tho habit of drawing an invidious distinction betweon tho present condition of tho churoh and the preceding and moro satisfactory period. Tho annual meeting of tho officials of the church takes plaoo to-morrow and a groat deal of interest is attaohod to tho meeting. It is probable that an effort will be made to force a resignation upon Dr. Hinkle. One of tho highest ofhcials in the church, in answor to a question as to whether an effort was to bo mado at the annual election to doposo Dr. Hinkle, replied that to many of the congregation the pastor was distasteful, and that since the facts about his privato confessional had becomo the property of tho publio a number have left the church. Another prominent ohuroh official said: "Dr. Hinkle belongs to a secret monkish order that has its headquarters in England. It is from that order that he roceived and accepted those high ritualistic ideas that border on Born an ism. I toll you that English order is dangerous. I am creditably informed that one of their doctrine is that old cardinal doctrine of tho Jesuits that the end justifies the means. When a man believes that and is ready to practice it, then I think he has approached very near the bordor of Roman Catholicism." It was learned to-day that tho finances of the church havo beon in & . very bad condition for somo time, and that the management had been iucompotont and disastrous, and that tho oleotion to-morrow would result in a thorough investigation of the manner in which the finances of tho church had been managed. It may be significant, in this connection, to .stato that the finances are controlled by tho factiou. A DOCTOR'S RECKI.KSSNKSS. Heine Drunk, lie CIIvcm Mornhiuc for tiilniucund KillH Two Cliildrun.

New i Peculiarly Fitted for tho Position, and That the fj olden Oppor. tunltyBIan Arrivod. WAsniwoTON, March 20. Immediately upon the rocoipt of a telegram hero last evening announcing the death of Postmaster General Howe, at Madison, Wis., tho politicians began forecasting his and tho possihlo changes tho death will mako in tho cabinot. It is the general belief that First Assistant Postmaster General Hatton, who by oustom will succeed to acting Postmaster General until tho President names tho successor, will bo chosen. Mr. Hatton has for several months been ono of tho President's confidents. Ho has, iu fact, been tho Postmaster General from tho day of his introduction into his office, and is considered by every ono as espcciaUy Btrong with tho President. Hatton scorns to havo mado a very good officer. Ho is enorgetic and plain spoken. Ho is freo and easy. Ho does not get excited, and acts on tho spur of tho moment with as good judgment as when ho takes his timo to a problem. All the30 qualities suit tho President. Postmaster General Howe has not figured prominently at cabinet meetings at any time, and bus been represented by proxy at most of tho late meetings of late, so that his death, whilo fully recognized and deeply folt, will not occasion any special distress. Tho death was not a surpriso here, as it has been known for somo timo that tho Postmaster General was rapidly failing in physical strength. The friends of Assistant Treasurer John C. New, of Indiana, aro talking strongly for Mr. New for the postmaster generalship. They say this is tho golden opportunity to give to Indiana tho Cabinet position. THE LADIES' CHANCE " ! BXDKR THE CIVIL SERVICE LAVS They May Compete for the Rest Ofllcea. Washington, Maroh 20. Women in and out of the departments have been studying the civil service laws, and have decided that under them no distinction can be mado betweeu the sexos in competing for places. Tho sexes must bo subjootcd to tho same tests, and if tho women excel they mint bo selected for appointment. Ono would think that this is a self evident proposition, but it is a rut her startling one to the mule clerks, and to the heads of departments, who. as a general thing, mo o posed to any iuorciiso iu tho force of I'eimilc cb'rks. Heretofore wuiiicn havo been oMi;d to entor the :. i.M at much lower .-a aii"s than men, .iii.l )iiiu neier liccn tahuoccd to tho ii y.hoi grades. Two-i liird.s of tho malo i ivk havo been npp.untcd nriginully to Mioanciiw .it salaiics of $1,200 j'tr your. On the otlii'r hnnd, thero are 'ow. if any instances, of females being i. ifd to clerkships when firt iiier'uig tho service. They are almost uuisei sally placed at $70 or $76 jMir month, no matter what their iliiu'iincntions. Further than this, somo inquiry has failed to hoar of any instance of a female clerk being advanced to a salary of .VI, 800. There are a few of $1,000 not above a doen in the whole .service. The limit for them seems by general consent to be $1,200. This is entirely without rcferoiico to eupucily. Thoic are instances of linguists and translators at $1 ,200 per year, oil ling in the room with men who do vastly inferior work, but who receive for it a third uoro salary. Undor the uew law merit al e is supposed to win, and tho argument of the ladies that tho host places are to be opened to them seems to bo unanswerable. A Free l'llit it a Dunce. Fort Smith, Ark., March 20. At a party given at the house of i.ewis Cooper, a very respectable colored man living uino miles from here, iu tho Choctaw Nation, a general row ocourrcd between 11 and 12 o'clock, in which knives, pistols and clubs were freely used. Elijah Henderson was fatally shot by Silas Johnson, a of Cooper. Johnson surrendered to tho Uuitod Statos Marshal this morning, claiming that the killing was justifiable. Witnesses havo been sent for and a judicial investigation will'bo hady. Johnson has been committed to jail to await tho result. The Jeter Ju?y Dfrmgrce. Indianapolis, Maroh 20.
