A Celebrated Painting- -Bits of Local News From Many Sources, Be- .' side the Carnival. TROUBLE IX A CHlilftCH. A I. one Story of the Differences Be tween I astor ana '• eople of the Firm! Presbyterian Church. \ The St. Paul presbytery yesterday under took to straighten out the troubles in the First Presbyterian church between the pastor. Rev. Nathaniel West, and the society. Before the presbytery closed its session it found that it bad a large bit of work on its bands, and a vast deal of history, some of it prett ancient, though hitherto unpublished. There was an attendance of about fifty, era bracing about all the clergymen and laymen In St. Paul and Minneapolis who are entitled to sit In the presbytery. Several wordy squabbles were Indulged in, and numerous bits of humor came out. It is a matter of general public knowledge that the relations between Dr. West and the church over which he has been preaching have not been harmonious. After he lad been with the church some months, though never having formally ac cepted the call, the proposition was made to him to submit to a reduction of $1,000 in his salary. This he declined to do, and from about that time the trouble seems to ha^c be jrun. It has been charged by his people that he was not possessed of any tact in his pas toral work, that h e was on a plane too high for his cougr Ration and that under his pas toratesbip the church was gradually going to pieces. A commission was appointed to in vestigate and report to the presb; tery and the developments yesterday showed that a good deal oi -'inside matter" had been dug out by this efficient commission. Dr. West was present yesterday looking somewhat worn out and as if he were in auy mood but a nappy 0m... When the roll of the presbytery was being made up the name of Mr. Cooper, of the First Presbyterian church, was culled. Dr. West at once said that Mr. Cooper bad no right to sit In the presbytery, as he had not been placed on the roll by a proper session of his church. Thesesslon bad not been presided over by the pastor, nor bad the regular clerk been acting. This pro voked a general and HEATED DISCUSSION, ! J . in which the laws governing the church were gone into, and the actions on this point of the general assemblies as far back as 1863 were produced and read. It was iinall v decided to h jiir the report of the commission before set tling tiis point. Dr. Boardman read It, the report consisting of the minutes of nine meetings of the committee at which testimony had been taken. Wit nesses had been examined oy the commission and their testimony bad been taken in full. Mr. Cooper had testified that the church wanted to reduce the Balarr of Mr. West to help out the church financially. His testi mony was to the effect that Dr. West had gone away on a vacation for six weeks and m'ven no notice to his congregation. Tnat he bad said on one occasion that he was going to be present at the bedside of a dy.n r sister, and then had gone to Northfit-ld to supply a pulpit, before hastening to the dying bed. Mr. Cooper had to d the commission that Dr. West's temperance ideas were driving people from the church, the single remark that he believed that it was a good thing to take a little wine for the stomach's sake having caused two families to leave the chuicb. Mr. Cooper also tc ifled that Dr. West bad been telling people tuat the church was so slow in payii g his salary that he had been obliged to pawn his watch to pay his bills. In addition to these complaints; Mr. Cooper also testified that Dr. West drew the lines too tightly for his congregation to follow. Following the reading of the evidence came a long statement from Dr. West, as a sort of rebuttal. He said that he had been called very urgently by the church society. He had been promised $3,000 a year as salary, and an advance of $1,000 to furnish the parsonage. - He bad hesitated a long time, and bad finally come, though he bad never accepted the call. He said that the history of this church, since It had been presided over by Rev. Mr. Mad dock some years ago, had been a continued story .of strife between pastor and people. The usual routine was for a preacher to be a candidate on trial, then re ceive a call, then be ordained. This was fol lowed by a short era of prosperity and then came a row between the pastor and the church. The whole proceeding took, on the average, about two years. He believed there was something WHONO IN THE CHURCH". He claimed it was not the correct thing, in cutting down a pastor's salary.to take advan tage of the pastor's absence from the city to pass a resolution to that effect without even suggesting such a thing to the man on the quiet. He resented this, and had declined to accept the cut to protect his own manhood. He uranded as false the I atcments that he ■was creating dissension in the church. As to having pawned his watch to get money to pay his bills, he said that tue society bad once been owing him $50 on salary, which be needed to meet a b 11. He had written Mr. Cooper for it and received no repl> . He bad asked a friend to speak to Mr. Cooper, but got no returns In the shape of cash, and had accordingly borrowed $50 from a friend, leav ing his watch as security. The friend had objected to this, but Dr. West said he had 'eft the watch for his own peace of mind. The next Sunda be had, at the eaurch door, asked his friend to loan him his watch to time his sermon by, remarking, -'You know I have no watch now." Dr. West complained that misrepresentations had been made to him as to the financial conditions of the society. He bad been told that the church was out of iebt, and he had held special services Over the event. He had offered a fervent prayer of thanksgiving before the throne of grace that the church was out of debt, while the debt was still unpaid, some one having told him an untruth. He was not told of this »yen at the service, but was lett to find it out as best he could. Dr. West also said that a kind Providence, through what seemed an affliction, had spared him some other annoy ance at the hands of the trustees. He bad been promised $1,000 to fit up a parsonage. This he bad never seen, but as his sister had fled. It was impossible for him to go to keep ing bouse, and the annoyance that would bave come to him by reason of the non payment of the $1,000 had been spared. He had fitted up no bouse but had been boarding AT THE K VAN HOTEL. He dwelt in a most touching strain on tbe beart bleeding- that this action on the part of & church, where be had done the hardc&t work of bis life, had been his reward, and he was forcible in tbe statement of bis belief Chat there wits a personal motive in it all. Several of the members of the church, in cluding Messrs. Cooper, Jewett and Tinker, bad said that they would be willing to leave the church if it wonld benefit the society. Tbe reading or the testimony taken before Jhe coxnmii£lon occupied fully two hours, and At its conclusion the presbytery took a recess Until evening. At 7:30 o'clock the members isme together for another stormy session, Vrbich lasted about two hours. The commis sion closed its report by submitting a pream ble and resolution criticising tbe trustees of tbe church. The resolutions and the report of the commission were indorsed by the pres bytery. The resolutions recite that Whereas, A majority of the trustees have excluded from the church during the time of Stated worship on Sunday and Wednesday tor Beyeral weeks past the members of the congregation and tbe pastor-elect, Rev. Dr. West, and have caused the house to be closed during hours of worship and have caused the gas meter to be removed and prevented the sexton from heating the house, it is resolved, that Dr. West is entitled to the use of the house and that it should be kept open, heated and lighted at the regular times of worship. The members are ordered to desist from the unlawful acts and from obstructing the pastor in the discharge of bis duties. They are ordered to replace the gas meter. No sooner was the report read than Mr. Cooper wanted to be beard on behalf of the trustees. This request brought out a dis cussion that was ut times heated. Dr. West claimed that if this was done it would be practically going back on the REPORT OP THE COMMISSION. . "When the presbytery indorsed that report It closed the case. If Mr. Cooper were al lowed to testify the whole case . would be re opened. He «nade the point that the com mission was a(. art of the presbytery. This had declared in bis favor and Mr. Cooper had no right to make further statements. There ■were three courses open. The presbytery might surrender, it might grant letters of dismissal and remove the elders, or declare the session disobedient. His case was ended, Be said it was not Dr. West against the First l?res .yteiian church, for he had nothing tgalnst the church. This moved a member it the presbytery to remark that Dr. West was not the cause, but the occasion of the trouble. Dr. Christie, of the House of Hope church, fn&de the claim that the First church had not J»ee§ given a fair, hearing. Dr. West said that he had been told that the session had been advised by six ministers Us . to the action it should take. He said 'he would name them, and he began, "Dr. Edwards, Dr. Christie, , Dr. Woods" — | Mr. Robertson— i object. '■'■ Dr. Christie was evidently somewhat ex- ' cited. Ho arose and walked the floor. "I ob ject." said he. ''That is not true." A point of order was raised, and Dr. West did not ! name the other three. In the -course of his talk Dr. West, asserted" that ' one member of the commission of investigation had been so wrought upon by the dunes of the commis- I sion and the mental strain that It bad caused bis death. The case was not settled last night, ! and the presbytery adjourned until tnis : moroinifi - ■ STATE I'Kl IT (.KOWI.KS.

Mr. Dartt had evidently given j his subject ample study and made many valuable suggestions as to the most favora ble locations lor growing apples and other | fruit. . Mr. Darth's paper brought forth con siderable discussion upon the best localities lor raising fruit: some of the delegates tali- ; ii;g the position that elevated land was the ' Lest, and others declaring their preference j lor ( lowiands. J. T. Grimes, who was one of I the assistant superintendents at the state : fair, read a paper on tue ye, eiable exhibit, in | wnich he took occasion to urge the necessity for more competent judges tor exhibits of fered at stale fairs.

Every apple grower present told ot his expe riences with the Russian varieties and it was interesting to note the different results at tained in different soils and climate.

Mr. Elliott re viewed the work of the society during the twenty years of its existence, and made numerous recommendations for the future work 10 be done by the society. He called upon all horticulturists in the state, who are "not now members of the society, to send in their applications for mem bership at once, as an increased membership and more enthusiasm on the part of the members was necessary to the society's success.

The Carnival City Filling With Vis itors-- Enthusiasm Greater Thau G Was Ever Known. ... The second day of the carnival brought in creased Interest in 'everything 1 pertaining to the winter holiday. The enthusiasm of every body has already approached that of last year, which was boundless.' The city is crowded : with visitors, the hotels are overflowing, ; boarding houses are filling up, ana cots are j being placed in hotel corridors, in vacant buildings where . these can be found, and even the largest public i halls in the city are belli? supplied with cots for the 'visiting organizations.

THE INDI4N I'KOCKS&ION. Moose, Ilk, Hudson Bar Dogrs and Shetland Ponies Drawing- the Medsr<s. A large crowd of people gathered at Seven corners yesterday afternoon to witness the sfnrt of the Indian parade. There wa9 con s d Table delay in getting started, owing to the time taken in getting the Shetland ponies to the starting place. After a team of live of them had been hitched up, four abreast and one ahead, the single one broke loose and ran away, causing the delay. The crowd put in the time inspecting the dog teams, the moose and the elk, the Indians themselves being the least curiosities of all. It was past 3 o'clock waen the parade started, and it was made up as follows, four mounted police leading the way: The Columbia Metropolitan band, in the club uniform, in a sleigh dr*wn by four white horses. A pair of long bobs drawn by a tandem team and loaded with children in uniform. A team or four Shetland ponies abreast drawing a small toboggan pledge with seat for the driver. A pair of moose drawing- a sledge and driver. One of these animals is 18 months old, the other but 9 months, as their horns have but just begin to grow. Their owner claims they will travel all day at a 2:20 gait. These animals were, perhaps, the greatest curiosity in line. A single elk drawing a sledge, being regu larly harnessed in thills and driven by a bit, as were the moose. It was intended to have a team of elk, but one of them suffered a broken leg in being shipped, and had to be killed. Five teams each of three dogs, each draw ing a sledge and each accomi anied by an In dian driver. These dogs are j-»enuine Hudson bay animals, and are accompanied by Sota In dians fiom the same vicinity. A band of thirty-six Indians, in a variety of costumes, from a common pea jacket to a blanket branded "U. S. "on the liack. One wore a very fanciful white oostume, with his head stuck into the skin of a jack rabbit, and performed various dancing feats along tbe line of march. The band was accompanied by two tom-toms, on which the drummers monotonously beat marching time. Follow ing these were two ponies, each harnessed into a rude contrivance of two poles, front end serving as thills and the rear end drag ging on the ground, a seat being arranged across them, on which the drivers rode when not walking to keep warm. Behind them marched a band of teu squaws. The procession marched down Third street to Sibl«*y, thence along: th« line of march to the palace grounds, where it arrived about 4 o'clock. THE PALACE ILLUMINATED. The Home of the Ice Kins: a Blaze of Light and a ' irttire or Urn my. The ice palace was illuminated last evening for the first time. The walls are much UaOre transparent than last year, and the electric ; lights are more numerous within, conse quently the effect was better. The interior of the palace was a perfect blaze of light and : the walls were so transparent that the flood of light was dispensed over the entire park, and with the numerous other electric lights about the grounds every nook and corner was as light as day. The palace itself was like one ' large ciystal. and when viewed from v dis- ; tance the best effect was obtained. The bat- ', tlements and turrets of the great donjon tower, the minarets of the outworks, : the ice statuary over the grand en tance — every point was clearly descemi- ' ble and was viewed by thousands of people not only in the grounds but from the ' eminences about the city. The toboggan 1 Biities were well patronized throughout the ' evening, a3 also was the skating rink, and the • number of visitors was very large. . p . ' The street illuminations showed up consid- < erably better than on the previous evening-, the weather not being quite so cold. Third ' and Seventh streets were especially beautiful, 1 where the arches are more numerous, than 1 elsewhere. The arches at the Ryan, at Seven 1 corners and in front of the • postoffice also 1 snowed up to good advantage. A particu larly fine feature of the illuminations consists 1 of the numerous pyramids .of lights placed < on the lamp posts, although some trouble was i experienced in keeping them lighted on cor- i ners exposed to the wind. , AT IHi. OR I .\DS. The Tobocsnn Mules, the "katingr l Rinks and the ialace Opened for ! Sport. ' The ice palace grounds presented a lively , carnival scene yesterday which will be more ] anil more enlivened from day to day. The ] rinks were cleared of snow and workmen ) engaged all day in hauling snow and ice chips out of the palace enclosure. The ■ finishing ' touches were also put on the palace; at the ' western gateway mid the work tinal y com- ' pleted. The toboggan slides were 'got in order early in the day and all the afternoon '* the ga uniforms of the different clubs oould c be seen gliding down the incline. The slides ] l were hardly in as good shape as tiny, will to .1 "tor more use \ and •oonsequen tly ' all three could -not be u ted continuously. But the head of the slides was crow led with Indies «nd gentlemen who partook of the exonerating 1 sport with the old-time enthusiasm. A large . number of uniform laJiea and gentlemen were scattered about the grounds, but tbe principal attractions were the toboggan slides and the Indian camp. The skating rink was not very well patronized because the ice.was very hard and not quite smooth. On account of the unsatisfactory condition of the ice the skating races were postponed. The skaters were very anxious to try the curling rink, which was all that could be desired, but of course this was not allowed, as it would have ruined the ice for curling. Everything about the grounds is now in readiness lor the gran arrival this afternoon of the ice king, who will come In great state and spleudor with all Arctic accompaniments, to take his seat on the ice throne placed for him in the central tower. VISITING VI. IBS. Delegations in the City From Rose* man an I 9lissouia« Mont., aud New Hampton, lit.

The Scandinavian Ski club met at Carnival headquarters last evening. The members in dulged in some pretty hard kicking against the carnival management because no slide for their skis or kjelkas has been erected in the carnival grounds, as had been promised the club. The members of the club feel very much hurt over the matter, as they say they submitted plans for a slide, at the request of the carnival managers, and then were not notified that it would hot be built. Now it is so late that they may not be able to erect one by- private subscription. The club objects, also, 10 the fact oat only $00 has been set aside for prizes in the ski and kjelka con tests. _ / Display of Equipages.
