a Day Gathered From

And the Nation Honors Them
"When Dead— Memorial Day Ex
Memorial day was generally observed
in St. Paul yesterday by the usual cere
mony of decorating the graves of the
old soldiers in the cemeteries, and by a
street parade and afternoon exercises of
quite an elaborate character.
The veterans and members of the
Women's Relief corps and Daughters of
Veterans assembled at 8 o'clock in the
forenoon at the court house, and taking
special street ears, visited the various
cemeteries. The greater number of
soldiers' graves, some 100, are in Oak
land cemetery. Upon the arrival of the
decorating force at this place they di
vided into four squads and marched
about among the resting places of their
comrades in double file, while the Wo
men's Relief corps placed on each grave
beautiful floral tributes. As the graves
were one by one visited, the soldiers
surrounded them and knelt while the
flowers were placed upon the graves. At
Calvary cemetery about fifty graves
were decorated, and a small number at
the two Lutheran cemeteries.
At the entrances to Oakland and Cal
vary white crosses were erected, upon
which were hung wreaths and baskets
of flowers for the soldiers who sleep on
fields of battle or in distant cemeteries.
Besides the decorating committee.many
others brought floral tributes to the
At 10 o'clock requiem mass for the
souls of the soldiers of the civil war was
said at the cathedral by Father Dolphin,
military chaplain at Fort Sneliing.
Father Shanley and Father Gibbons as
sisted in the ceremony. There was no
sermon, and the attendance was largely
from the Crusaders' and Father Mat
thew societies. JW
The parade of the militia and Grand
Army posts took place in the afternoon,
busiuess being generally suspended.
About 1 o'clock the G. A. R. men met
at their respective halls and marched to
Bice park, where the procession was
Leading the* parade was the Union
Park detail of mounted police. The
procession was in charge of Chief Mar
shal William R. Marshall, Comrades A.
Pugh and William Cunningham acting
as aides. The Great Western band
headed the first division, which was
composed ot Acker post, C. 1). Parker
commanding, 125 men; Garfield post,
George A. Austin commanding, 60 men;
Bircher post, E. St. .lulien Cox com
manding, 24 men; Ord post, B. Con
verse commanding, 20 men; ex-soldiers
not members of the G. A. R., Wilford
C.Wilson commanding. Orators of the
day in carriages.
The second division was headed by
the First' Regiment band and com
manded by Assistant Marshal A. V.
Teeplo, whose aides were E. H, Mil
bam and 1). L. Kingsbury. This divis
ion included Companies C, I) and E, M.
N. G„ St. Paul; Camp Jso. 1, Sons ot
Veterans, XV. XV. Hills, Jr., command
ing; St. Paul Camp No. 4, Daughters of
Veterans; Woman's Relief corps of
Acker and Garfield posts, and citizens
in carriages.
The line of march was from Fifth
street to St. Peter, to Third, to Jackson,
to Seventh, to Wabasha, and thence to
the capitol grounds, where the memo
rial day exercises took place.
Memorial Exercises with an Ora
tion by Col. C. D. Kerr.
Long before the procession arrived,
the capitol rgrounds were filled with
people. Many veterans, too feeble to
march, yet proudly wearing tneir blue
coats and badges, composed a liberal
part of the audience. Ladies were
there in great numbers, and to the
fences and trees clung the irrepressible
small boy to the number of several hun
dred. The sidewalks, from Wabasha to
Cedar were lined with people, and the
streets on all sides filled with vehicles.
In many respects the scene resembled
an enormous park, and it was a rare
treat for the children for only on such
occasions are they allowed the free
dom of the capitol lawn. The
windows of the building were filled
with ladies, likewise the windows and
roofs of private residences within sight.
The speakers stand had been erected
on the steps leading to the southern en
trance to the capitol, and when the pro
cession came, it was given the place of
honor nearest the platform, the band
and members of the G. A. R. in front.
The exercises were opened with a
dirge by the First Regiment band, fol
lowed with prayer by Rev. E. D. Neill.
E. St. Julien Cox read the general or
ders. The vocal music by the quar
tette, R. C. Munger, John Donahue,
Frank Wood and John F. Gehan, was
very good ; also the recitation by Will
iam XV. Pendergast of Ingersoll's
"Vision, the Past Rises Before Me Like
a Dream."
Col. C. D. Kerr was introduced as ora
tor of the day, and made an eloquent
address, as follnws:
At a time of wonderful prosperity,
of high national honor, distinc
tion and power we are brought to
gether on this day by our love of coun
try, and by our gratitude for signal
services and patriotic devotion to pay a
tribute of grateful remembrance at the
graves of men who illustrated these
qualities in their lives and by their
deaths. The scenes which the duties of
this day recall carry me back a quarter
of a century. It is easy, when all the
tender memories entwined about the
heart-strings of the soldier are awakened
and refreshed by the ceremonies of this
day, to obliterate the intervening years
and stand again side by side with our
dead comrades in the struggle that
brought them to the grave. Yet, con
sider for a moment what these interven
ing years have, brought forth. No coun
try in the world's history can show such
a growth as marks our advance from
the position we occupied before the
blight and desolation of war fell upon
us. Compare the Minnesota of to-day,
with its thriving villages and metropob
itan cities; its railways and manufact
ories, with the wilderness of 1800.
Truly we live in a wondrous age. Events
so various and so important that they
might crowd and distinguish centuries,
are in our times compressed with
in the compass of a single life.
As a soldier, 1 am deeply sensible of the
honor so freely shown to my dead com
rades. • Yet, at the same time. 1 cannot
but think that we sometimes forget, oi
at least undervalue, the influence ot the
women of the North in bringing the wai
to a successful conclusion. "No man can
overestimate the share that the
of our soldiers bore in stimulating and
promoting these qualities throughout
the army. Is it any wonder that a na>
tion which can boast such . mothers and
daughters as ours has demonstrated the
fact that it can never be enslaved 1109
disrupted? We owe it to ourselves and
to posterity to ever mark the return ol
Decoration day with grateful ceremo
nies; not alone in commemoration oi
those who died, but to perpetuate also
the principles for which they died.
I can easily take you old soldiers back
to the days of '61. Washington was full
of rebels openly proclaiming their
treason in the very nails of congress
and the mansion of the chief executive.
Washington was also full, of Northern
men, politicians mostly, who were cry
ing God save the country, but they sim
ply meant God save my place and my
fortune; make me register of a land of
fice, or collector of customs. The prayer
of the South in Washington was: Let
me live upon the fruit of- other men's
industry, and the prayer of the North
ern politician at the capital was let me
fatten upon the plunder of the public.
The country at large was full also of
politicians of a lesser grade, men who
were moderately base, who were flexi
ble in shame, who were ready to be
loyal and patriotic when anything was
to be gained by that course, but who
would much prefer to be the hirelings of
the worst cause than
And the civil war was upon us. Then
uprose that mighty, host, in the North,
not of politicians, not of seekers for
place of plunder but of the "honest
masses, the mainstay and support of
every republic. ' To these masses be
long the credit ana the honor of that
war's success. It was no holiday excur
sion over summer seas, as you well
know, but the last ditch was reached at
last, and the country was saved. Then
came reconstruction. The masses of
negro slaves were now freed men and
citizens. The same unpartisan masses
who had fought the battles ot the union
fought again at the polls, and in legis
lative halls, the battle of reconstruc
tion. The result is before you to-day.
Why then do we meet here to strew
flowers upon the graves of these dead
heroes to-day?, Not surely to shadow
forth our grief and sorrow at their fate.
Nay, hot sola Flowers, 'from the day
they were strewn in the triumphant
pathway of our savior to the day when
they decorate these graves, have ever
spoken the language of love and con
stancy and gratitude and joy; and they
appropriately speak that language here.
Shall 1 mourn the fate of these, my com
rodes, who passed over only a little be
fore, with the sweet assurance that they
had died for their country and would be
remembered with grateful hearts and
floral offerings of praise arid -love by
generations yet unborn? . Nay.Jverily!
If the spirits of these patriotic men are
looking down on us to-day, hs I believe
they are, it is with no tinge of regret
that they made the sacrifice they did to
secure a" nation's safety and enjoy these
enduring tokens of a nation's gratitude.
For the most part no costly works of
men's hands mark these seemingly
humble graves. Yet, the simple offer
ings of friendship which you have
brought to them to-day breathe a richer
fragrance and denote a more enduring
fame than was ever inscribed on monu
mental brass or sculptured marble.
Amid the toils and turmoils of life it
is a pleasant thing to know that so
many thousands yearly observe this
day. That from the workshop and the
men and women come forth, and for
getting the carking cares that distract
and the saddening sorrows that distres%
them, devote one day to the remem
brance of those who gave up life itself
for their country. Let the day be ever
thus observed. : Let it become one of
the institutions of- our country. Teach
its celebration to your children as you
do the observance of the Fourth of
July. It is a very small return you
will thus make for the heritage of
freedom bequeathed to you by the men
you honor.
I know you will join me in a senti
ment from an author, whose name I
have forgotten, in honor or our soldier

One of the Brewers Now in the
City Owns the House Where Lin
coln Died.
Hon. Louis Schade, editor of the
Washington Sentinel, and who is the
legal representative of [the brewers' as
sociation at the national capital, is one
of the delegates to the convention now
holding its sessions in this city. Few
would think to look at the jolly counte
nance and brown beard, untinged with
gray hairs, that this staunch Democrat
had nearly reached three score years in
the journey of life, but as his friends
say, he will never change. Untiring in
his efforts to attend to the interests of
his constituents before the national leg
islature and ever vigilant in watching
the maneuvers of the Prohibitionists
with a view to checkmating them at the
outset, he is in every sense the right
man in the right place, and his vigorous
leaders in the Sentinel command the re
spect even of those who are opposed to
his views, Mr. Schade resides iv
a house at Washington made famous
for all time by the fact that
in the second story front room Abraham
Lincoln breathed his last a few hours
subsequent to his prostration by the
bullet of the assassin J. Wilkes Booth.
A white marble tablet bearing the in
scription in gold letters, "A. Lincoln
died in this house," placed in the center
of the brick front and facing Ford's
theater on the opposite side of Tenth
street, where the dastardly act of Booth
was perpetrated, invariably attracts the
attention of pedestrians, aud especially
tourists from points remote from Wash
"So great is the desire to see the room
in which Mr. Lincoln died," said Mr.
Schade, in conversation with a repre
sentative of the Globe, "that I have
been compelled, in order to avoid the
annoyance of having troops ot visitors
running in and out of my house, to put
up a card on my door that it is a private
residence. Even this does not deter the
most persistent, however, and they will
in some instances utterly disregard the
notice and force themselves in upon my
family and myself." Several years ago
members of the Illinois congressional
delegation made a proposition to buy
the house from Mr. Schade, but there
was a disagreement as to the terms of
sale, and so the matter is still in .abey

Young Men and Little Girls
Found in a Room Together.
Two little girls, sixteen and seventeen
years of age, named May Colwell and
Baby Shepherd, came to grief yesterday
in the municipal court. They were
well-developed for their age and some
what inclined to be wayward, and last
; Tuesday night were tempted by two
young men, calling themselves Charles
; Smith and Frank Milton, whom they
met by appointment at the dime
museum, to spend the night together in
a cheap lodging house on the corner of
1 Fifth and Jackson streets. The Shep
-1 herd girl came from Chaska, but had
! been at work in a Minneapolis restaur
-1 ant, where she met the Colwell girl.
' Three weeks ago they came to St. Paul
in search of work, which the Colwell
girl found in a confectionery store on
• Third street.
' The quartette went to the house of H.
Yiereg, on Fifth and Jackson streets, to
» spend the night. Sergt. Schweitzer
' got wind of the affair and went to the
• place. The proprietor, Yiereg, en
!. deavored to conceal the parties, but
-, without avail. When the girls were
: tried in court yesterday it came out that
they had visited the place before, and a
! warrant was sworn out against Viereg
for keeping a disorderly house. He
1 was fined $50 for the offense and
.severely reprimanded by Judge Cory,
! while the girls were sent to the House
I', of the Good Shepherd for thirty days
t each, and the men got the same length
* of time at the workhouse.

Day of the National
Gambrinus Rex, if he could have
looked into the Standard hall yesterday
morning, could not have helped a : feel
ing of gratification at the appearauce
presented by upwards of 250 rotund dis
ciples, who constituted the twenty
eighth annual convention of the United
States Brewers.
Officers of the association occupied
seats upon the platform and in the
body of the hall were seated some of
the most substantial citizens of the
country, whose characteristics seemed
to be of the most business-like fraternity
and successful in their line, too. There
was a busy hum of conversation as the
delegates renewed old friendships and
talked over the outlook for next year's
brewing interests, but silence reigned
when, at 10:30, President William
Hamm, of the local brewer's associ
ation, rapped the gathering to oider and
made a brief speech of welcome.
President Miles responded in behalf
of the visitors, his remarks being for
mulated in the shaps of an annual ad
dress, in the course of which he said:
Our "opponents are well organized,
have abundant means, and a portion of
them are imbued with that energy
which proceeds from the fanatical in
vention that they are engaged in a holy
crusade for the benefit of their fellow
men; and the press, the lecture plat
form and the pulpit, with renewed,
perseverance and energy, are used as.
the engines for our destruction. Two
years' experience of the system of en-,
tering into agreements with labor unions!
has been sufficient to satisfy us of the;
folly of such modes of procedure. You:
are all familiar with the methods
adopted by the board of trustees of this
association, in co-operation with the
various local associations throughout the :
country, to throw off the yoke imposed
upon us by these contracts, which became ',

and despotic in their terms and condi

taken upon this labor question has com
manded the respect of all good men
everywhere; and your courageous;
course appeared all the more commend
able because your timidity and self-in
terest were proclaimed and counted i
upon by the leaders, when they boasted
that the boycott could be made most
effective against you for the reasons
that your product was so largely con
sumed by the workingmen, and that,
owing to a spirit of inconsiderate com
petition, one portion of the trade could

the TWO tariff BILLS.
Mr. Mills' Bill Regarded More
Favorably Than Randall's.
non. Louis Schade, of Washington,
D. C, the attorney of the association
and publisher of the Sentinel, the offi
cial organ of the brewers at the national
capital, in his report stated:
During the past year nothing of a
legislative character has occurred at the
capital in any way injurious to the brew
ing trade. Last fall some v Western
brewers complained that the internal
revenue officers insisted that the
monthly returns must be signed and
sworn to by the brewer himself, thus
preventing the latter from being absent
from the brewery for any length of
time. Upon the question being submit
ted to the treasury department, it was
held that such statement must be
signed by the person by whom it was
rendered, and if not verified by himself
he must cause it to be verified by some
person having personal knowledge of
the business, and being otherwise fully
qualified by his position to make the
There are two tariff bills before the
house, one introduced by Mr. Mills, the
majority bill, and the other by Mr. Ran
dall. Mr. Mills' bill is more favorable
to your interests, It provides that "rice
flour, rice meal and broken rice that will
pass through a sieve known , commer
cially as No. 10 wire sieve, shall pay 20
per cent ad valorem," which is an im
provement on the present rate— it being
also the same rate contained in Col.
Morrison's tariff bill of last congress.
Mr. Randall's bill is a step backwards,
for it provides that "rice flour, rice meal
and broken rice which will pass through
a sieve known commercially as a No. 12
wire sieve shall pay one-half of 1 cent
per pound." ■,-■■. <
A reduction of the duty on corks was
frustrated by the cork manufacturers,
who appeared here in great force. In
every other respect your wishes were
complied with in the Mills bill.
The abolition of the retail spirituous
and malt liquor license tax, as proposed
in the Mills bill (the Randall bill de
mands the repeal of all the internal rev
enue taxes), is rather one-sided, as it
still leaves the wholesale spirituous and
malt liquor license taxes in force. If
those license taxes are to be touched at
all, let all of them be wiped out, or
leave them as they are, as they now fur
nish the best proof that prohibition does
not prohibit.
Ido not think, however, that any
tariff bill will pass during the . present
The prohibitionists, as such, have not
made our prohibitory laws. The latter
are the work of one or the other of the
two great political parties. Even the
leading prohibitionists and their papers
do no longer claim that prohibition is a
mere moral or temperance question, al
though with them it is less a political
than a money-making affair.
Business is the true backbone of pro
hibition. It is on that account that the
professional prohibitionists refuse to
ally themselves with either of the two
political parties, as by doing so they
would be swallowed up and lose their
identity, and with it their- business.
They want to keep up their separate or
ganization, and Prof. Dickey, their
principal traveling agent, is now form
ing separate prohibition . organizations
Which will support the prohibition
presidential candidate even in such pro
hibition states as lowa and Kansas, and
that to the great indignation of the Re
i publican leaders of those states.
Love, Lust and Greed More Prolific
: Than Intemperance.
Gallas-Thomann, manager of the lit
erary bureau, .'read the joint report of
the publication and vigilance commit
tees, from which the following extracts
are made:' -.
Your manager attended the Interna
tional Temperance congress held at
Zuerich, September, ISB7, and from a re
view of the report of the proceedinaAof
that body it will be seen that the" ex
treme ideas and plans of English and
American prohibitionists and total ab
stainers met with a very energetic oppo
sition.by an'overwheming majority J of
the continental delegates, most of wlmm
were . men: .: of. scientific training, thor
oughly familiar, with the subject and ab
solutely free from prejudices, precon
ceived notion's and dogmatism. In fact,
excepting, a few eminent men, who,,in
their medical treatment of inebriates,
found" total abstinence to be an effica
cious means of curing confirmed topfers,
and with the. further exception off a
small band of anarchists, nihilists and
social democrats, there was not a single
continental delegate who spoke approv
ingly of the methods of American Ex
tremists, while many denounced them
as unworthy, impracticable, , absurd.
Why social .. democrats, or nihilists, or
anarchists . should wish that the
state forbid the use of liquors
was explained by one of them,
a Maurice E. Stern. "You see," said
Mr. Stern, "the rich and well-to-do folks
systematically debauch the laboring
classes by encouraging and even bring
ing about their drinking excesses to the
end that they may be able to 'fleece'
them more easily. They debase the
workman because they know that a de
based man
American Prohibitionists are wel
come to the comfort which the con
sciousness of having such allies may af
ford them. Mr. Stern's arguments, by ;
the way, are not a whit more unphilo-'
sophical or illogical than those of the
Prohibitionists, of whom Dr. Miliiet,
chief of the bureau of statistice, said, at
the congress, that they did not talk and
act like men of science who had made a
study of the subject, but like crusaders,
propagators of a new religion. The
discussion proved again that exaggera
tion, falsehood and ignorance are the
stock in trade of the extremists,
the superficial methods of many writers
the lack of philosophic training of some
investigators and the obvious bias of
others have completely misled the read
ing public iv regard to the true causes
of crime, and many honest and able
men of great Influence treat the statis- :
tics usually paraded at temperance
meetings as irrefutable evidence of the j
assertion that if drink could be ban-'
ished from Our land our penitentiaries
and jails might be closed forever.
It will be shown, for instance, that of
859 murders which could be traced to
their origin (the total number being
1,009), 266 were caused by love or lust
and their * offsprings, jealousy and in
fidelity, or by.domestic infelicity, with
its multiform causes, to which latter in
compatibility of temperament con
tributes the lion's share; 122 were ;
caused by greed, the object of the mur
der being robbery ; 196 by violent erup- ,
tions of rage and like passions, or by
malice, revenge, etc.; 34 by political or
religious differences; 30 by insanity, in
cluding hallucinations of a religious nat
ure; and .98 by liquor. The remainder
(113) were traceable to complicated
causes, with which intoxication had ab
solutely nothing to do. K£
- Of 554 suicides (118 remaining unex
plained as to causes), 53 were occa
sioned by love or lust; 47, by domestic
infelicity; 81, by insanity; 56, by liquor,
and 199 by other causes, principally
destitution, despair, homesickness and
failures of all kinds. The greater por
tion of the unfortunotes whom ode
must place in the latter categories ape
foreigners who emigrated from a land
which JBit**SojM MWSR
no earthly future worth living for, and
who iv the land of their hopes and long
ing find themselves face to face with
starvation, even in the midst of super
abundance.' ..--.-." o: -: * ■
" Of 53 cases of arson, but one being un
explained. 29 were attributed to a greed
of gam; i ■*.>, to malice: 3, to insanity sl
each, to domestic infelicity and polit
ical differences; 7, to other causes,
and only 2 to liquor. Of 379 crim
inal assaults, 37 are traced to liquor.
In the long list of cases of adultery,
bribery, abortion, forgery, burglary.em
bezzlement, defalcations of all kinds,
one looks in vain for liquor as the cause;
while in a large proportion of them the
primary causes afford a strong warrant
for the standing theory of the French
detective police: "Cherchez la femmc."
Thus it is manifest that while drinking
and drunkenness are the lerst pi 'uc:i\ c
causes of crime, love, lust and greed are
the most prolific.
The Report of the Finance Com
mittee Was Very Favorable.
From the report of the finance com
mittee it appeared that during the year
the receipts had been 865,029.73, ex
penditures §40,378.85, leaving a balance
ol $24,050.88. During the year 6 ( ap
plications for membership were granted
and at present the numerical strength
of the association consisted of 28 honor
ary members, 190 associate members
and 602 active members, a total of 875.

A. G. Reymann, of Wheeling, W.Ya.,
asked financial aid to help the fight
against prohibition in his state; Will
iam Chandem, of Milwaukee, presented
a petition for the relief of outside brew
ers from the "'.. '*
policy of the brewers of Allegheny
county, Pennsylvania, which sought to
keep all other brewers from disposing
of their manufactures within the limits
of that county. Retaliatory measures
by the convention were urged as a
proper solution of the problem. Zie
bold and Haberling, of Atchison, Kan.,
requested financial aid to reimburse
them for losses incurred in their fight
against the prohibitionists who had
singled them out as objects of wrath. , '■
All these matters were referred to
the committee on restrictive legislation
for such action as it might see proper.
.Leo Ebert, a brewer of Ironton, 0.,'
then ascended the platform and deliv
ered a stirring address, which was en
thusiastically received. He declared
that the brewers individually, and as
a body, had always stood by the
government, which owed them the pro
tection which their interests demanded.
During the war the brewers had con
tributed liberally towards defraying the
expenses of the ; army and had been a
thousand times more generous than
their cold-water friends. He deprecated
efforts being made by the larger estab
lishments to swallow . the smaller ones,
saying that it was of little moment
whether he was eaten up by a large

A Claim That the Agricultural Bu
reau Is Not Fair.in Its Methods;
• The report of the advisory committer;
was then read and adopted, in which it
was stated that
The analysis of beer made by the
federal department of agriculture dur
ing the past year caused no little con
sternation amoug the brewers, because
it had been ascertained that the chemist
of that department, instead of - begin
ning his analysis with samples of beer
obtained directly from the brewer, as
common sense and justice would sug
. gest to any man of ordinary intelligence,
M and then extending it to beer secured
.from the retailer, so as to be. able to de
termine at what stage malt liquors are
(adulterated, if at all— simply bought
1-pttled beer in a haphazard sort of
fashion from retailers, analyzed, it, and
/then published the result in a .. general
, way, stating, for instance, that so many
.beer samples from this or that city were
s found to be impure. All the odium that
|ssch a statement is apt to create nat
.Atjally falls upon the brewers indiscrim
inately, and thus works injustice to
jjiany individuals. From , manyindica
'ijous that come to our notice it appeared
7 sjat the department was not disposed to
.proceed fairly in this matter, as a letter
.addressed to the commissioner of said
department by Mr. Heurich showed."
jln'his communication Mr. Heurich re
.quested that the names of the brewers
6 who manufactured adulterated beer
..should be given, and thus prevent injus
tice being done honest manufacturers.
Commissioner Coleman did not reply to
this letter, and when applied to in per
son, first promised to furnish the de
sired information and afterwards re
fused it. Mr. Heurich petitioned con
gress for redress, with the effect that a
resolution was offered by Representa
tive Komeis directing the commissioner
to state his reason for such refusal.
Thus far we have not heard what re
sult this resolution had. We hope,
however, that at all events it will cause
federal and state officials to see the
adopted by the agricultural department,
and to avoid them. Concerning the
proposition looking to the establishment
of a technical bureau, the committee
submitted the suggestions made by
M. P. Goepel, a patent lawyer and
editor of Der Techniker. He favored
a technical bureau, the duty of wnich it
should be to carefully investigate and
inquire into the merits of any patent re
ferred to it by members of the associa
tion; to ascertain the prior state ot the
art -of the invention covered by the
patent inquired of; to determine its le
gal scope and validity; to determine
whether the invention described in the
patent can be safely used without in
fringing on the rights of prior patentees,
- and to advise the members of the as
sociation whether the claims made un
der any patent are valid, void or fraudu
lent, so as to enable them either to
settle with the patentee or to contest
the claims made upon them, either with
or without the assistance of your as
sociation. After the discussion of rou
tine matters, during which delegates
were urged to register as promptly as
possible, the convention took a recess
-until this morning at 10 o'clock.

Lloyd, of Jordan, N. V., as rector for
the ensuing year. He will arrive in St.
