peranco question. A successful attempt
was made to hare stricken from the report
submitted by the committee on temperance,
tbe clause referring to the cause for eviction
by tbe people.
The election of general conference offi
cers was then taken up and a ballot was or
dered for the choice tf book agents for

B. Bant, present agents, were re-elected.

Robinson, of India, answered him In scath
ing tones. Ills speech was eloquently sec
onded by Dr. J. E. Wilson. The report

The following resolution was passed and
was ordered placed In tbe discipline:
"We are unalterably opposed to the en
actment of laws that propose, by license,
taxing or otherwise, to regulate tbe drink
traffic, because they provide for Its continu
ance and afford no protection against Its rav
ages. We hold that tbe proper attitude ot
Christians towards this traffic is one of un
compromising opposition and while we do
not presume to dictate to our people as to
their political affiliation we do ex
press the opinion that they should
not permit themselves to be controlled
by party organizations that are managed In
the interests ot tbe liquor traffic. We ad
vise members of our church to aid in tha
enforcement of such laws as do
not legalize or endorse tbe manu
facture . and sale of Intoxicants to be
used as beverage and to this end we favor
organization of law and order leagues
wherever practicable. We proclaim as our
motto: Voluntary total abstinence from all
Intoxicants as tbe true ground of personal
BOISTEROUS BASE BALLISTS.
Tbe Indianapolis Hoys Make Things Lire
. ly on n Little Miami Train.
It appears that base ball 'players do not,
at all times appreciate the fact that tbe
public have rigbts which they ought to re
spect. The following illustrates the point
"Coming over on the late Pan Handle
train from Indianapolis Wednesday night
was the Indianapolis base ball club. They
were In a sleeper and so disturbed the Dass-
engers with loud, rude and boisterous con
duct, that the conductor threatened to side
track the car at several places before be
could settle them down. Finally they were
induced tn.go to bed. after which they
were as 3 as ever. Between Dayton and
Xenla the conductor had trouble with them
and Sheriff C. W. Llnkhart, of Greene
county, who was on the train, told him that
be wanted to take the whole party oil the
train and have them punished for disorder
ly conduct. But this tho conductor con
cluded not to do. Base baliists can be
gentlemen If they want to."
FOR SQUIRREL SHOOTINC.
Two Countrymen Arretted tor Violating
tne Game Law.
Fish and Game Warden A. JIcC. Wilson
to-day swore out state warrants in tbe office
of 'Squire Stout, for the arrest of An
drew Waltman and Pearl II. .Veer.
living near Vienna, on the charge of shoot
ing squirrels at a time not authorized by
law. It is alleged that Waltman shot one
or more sqnlrrells on the 0th of May and
Neer on the 8th.
The shooting ol squirrels Is not legal until
the 15th of June. Constable Parsons went
out and arrested tbe men this forenoon.
The law very sharply defines the time
when certain game can be shot, and It Is
likely that Waltman and Neer will be made
an example of.-

the cellar stairway In the bar-room. In his
hip pocket he carried a revolver. . Suddenly
those present were greatly excited by hear
ing a loud report and seeing Sanford put
his hand to his side. He was at once
placed on a chair' and a physician sum
moned. Dr. Smith responded and was
soon followed by Dr. Speer. Tbe man was
placed on a lounge in a small room and the
wound examined. It was found that the
ball had entered a little back of the right
side and above the lower ribs, coursing up

only a skin wound, and the physicians at

Encouraging Reports from IWeh J
Chapel, Near Mew Carllsl
Beech drove chapel was rededicated last
Sunday moming, with very Impressive cer
emonies. Kev. Kauffinan, of Springfield,
an old Beech Grove pioneer, filled the pul
pit and preached a very interesting sermon.
The trustees reported nearly 8100 ex
pended, and a deficiency of S105, which
was raise t without much difficulty. Where
a community has such liberal-hearted citi
zens as Commissioner W. 11. Sterrett, such
a small balance, for the payment of a church
debt, is easily raised. Kev. Mr. Hunter, the
pastor, has labored bard the past two
years for the success of this charge,
and has thus far succeeded well In piloting
tbe ship through the storm. The promised
land is in view, and the children will enter
therein save a few who are here as else
where found straggling. The afternoon
exercises were held In the Interest of the
Sunday school members, and the hour was
but a minute. Hevs. Kanllman and Morris
entertained the members of the school and
congregation in well timed addresses. The
music by the choir deserves praise. To us
the country church choir has many charms,
and this bad doubly so. New Carlisle Sun.
The Ferrell Club Arranging; for a Big Trip
That popular and highly reputable sport
ing organization, the Ferrell Fishing club,
has decided not to take Its usual-sporting
jaunt this year, owing to the inability of
many ot the members to get away at this
season. Arrangements are being per
fected, however, for tbe club to make. In
Sepetmber, what promises to be the great
est excursion of its history.
At Its last visit to the'reservolr the club
encountered a jolly crowd of fellows from
Cincinnati, members of an organization
of about the same kind as the
Ferrell club. The Cincinnati boys
have a permanent "plant" on
one of the lakes of northern Michigan a
genuine little village of cottages, with club
bouse, etc., and ail modem and approved
advantages. This they kindly tendered the
Ferrell club for a trip this fall and the offer
.will be acted upon. A party of thirty will
cnarter a sieeping-car ana gn np in style.
A side-track runs direct to the grounds
from the main track and the sleeper will
stand here through the fifteen days of the
boys' trip. The Ferrells set ."great store"
on the excursion.

A Washington C. H. lady while pulling
radishes found one that was the perfect
counterpart of a child's hand. The HeraW
says:' The hand was fat, but the thumb
and four fingers tapered proportionately.,
and were attached to the chubby hand In
their proper places, while the flesh tint of
the radish gave It' all the" appearance of
life. The nails on some ot the fingers
were natural, and taken all together
shape, color and proportion nature's artist
has done its work well.

Jekyll and Mr. Hyde at Blac
There was a fair sized audience At the
Hlbbard last evening to witness "The
Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde,"
as presented by the Gamble, Dickson &
Power combination. The play Is a very
peculiar one and attracts and holds the at
tention of an audience, cnieny on account
of the weird and unnatural character of
the piece. George Ober, who took the dual
title role. Is certainly an adept at quick
transformations, changing from the fine ap
pearing gentleman as Dr. Jekyll to tbe hid
eous monster as Mr. Hyde almost Instantly.
Tbe company Is a very good one through
out, and the more interesting perilous of
the play received a fair amount ot applause.
Mr. Ober was called before the curtain . at
the close of the third act. Jackson (Mich.)
