Rabbi Ryplns Says It Is Visionary and
That No Sultan Would Sell
"The contention of the more rational
element among the Jews is that the Zion
istic movement is visionary, a dream,
and cannot be realized," said Rabbi Ry
pins, of the Mount Zion Temple, last
evening, when shown a cablegram stat
ing that France and Russia had stepped
in to prevent the proposed sale of Pales
tine to the Jews by the sultan of Tur
"I have not heard of this action on the
part of France and Russia," continued
Rabbi Rypins, "but my idea has been from
the start that even if the money to
purchase Palestine could be secured, no
sultan would sell the territory in opposi
tion to European powers.
"It is a mistake to call those who do
not favor the purchase of Palestine anti-
Zionists; there is no such class. It is
true there are Zionists who favored the
purchase of the country, not as a return
to a religious center, but for the purpose
of colonization. There is a concerted ef
fort to scatter the thickly populated dis
trict of New York into different sections
of the country, and this plan is being car
ried out with good results. I have been
instrumental in securing homes for a
large number of Roumanian, and Russians
who were living in New York; but this
plan of colonization along the line of the
Palestine scheme is so large and vision
ary that in my opinion it will not and can
not be successful."

Who officiated at the laying of the corner stone of the Church of St. John
the Evangelist.
of laying the corner stone occupied
nearly two hours and were followed
with deep interest by the assemblage
which gathered to take part in the
exercises. In spite of the chilling wind,
which blew out of the north, a crowd
that blocked both Kent street and
Portland avenue, participated in the
services to the end and was constantly
augmented by persons attracted by
the ceremonies.
The services in the church which
preceded the laying of the corner stone,
were presided over by Bishop Edsall,
assisted by Archdeacon Haupt, Rev.
E. P. Johnson, of Chicago, and Rev.
Daniels, of the colored mission of St.
Phillips. Bishop Edsall preached the
sermon. His subject was "Christ, the
Foundation Stone of Christianity." His
discourse was woven about the theme
that the church is the spiritual build
ing, visible and beautiful, founded
upon Christ, and made by individuals
in whom exists the Christ life.
An Impressive Procession.
At the close of the service in the
church, a procession, headed by Bishop
Edsall and his assistants, the clergy
men of other Episcopal churches in St.
Paul, the vestry of the church, the
choir, the congregation and the Sunday
school, marched out to lay the cor
ner stone, the choir singing as the
processional hymn "The Church's One
Foundation is Jesus Christ, her Lord."
The bishop and his assistant clergy
men gathered about the corner stone
and the crowd arranged itself in a
semi-circle and huddled together for
warmth. Bishop Edsall read the first
part of the ritual, the people respond
ing. Then with a sign of the cross he
marked the stone with a trowel, say
"In the name of the Father, of the
Son and of the Holy Ghost. Amen.
"O Lord, Holy Father, Almighty
Everlasting God, vouchsafe tp bless
and consecrate this stone for the
foundation of a church in honor of
St. John, the Evangelist; and grant
that whosoever, with pure mind, shall
assist in the building of the same by
the help of his hands or by the offer
ing of .his substance, may obtain health
of body and grace of soul, through
Jesus Christ, our Lord." .
Following this invocation came fur
ther reading of the ritual and notice of
the contents of the corner stone.
Corner Stone Is Laid.
The corner stone was swung and low
ered into place and tapping it three
times the bishop said:
"In the name of th« Father, and of the
Son, and of the Holy Ghost. Amen.
."I lay the corner stone of this building
to be here erected by the name of the
Church of St. John the Evangelist, to be
devoted to the service of Almighty God
according to the belief, discipline and
worship of the Protestant Episcopal
church in the United States.
"Other foundation can no man lay than
that which is laid, even Jesus Christ, who
is God over all, blessed for ever more,
in whom we have redemption through his
blood even the forgiveness of sins. Amen."
Bishop Edsall then delivered a short
address and offered a prayer, closing
the services with his blessing.

Officials of the Great Northern Have
Received No Report of His
Nothing was heard at the Great
Northern offices yesterday regarding
Benjamin F. Egan, superintendent of
the Kalispell division, who has been
lost in the mountain districts of Mon
tana for over a week.
What has happened to Mr. Egan can
only be conjectured. He may have
fallen a prey to the grizzlies or other
large game that inhabit the mountains,
or may be lost within a few miles from
where he was separated from his
hunting party.
C. C. Ponsonby, chief train dis
patcher for the Great Northern, said
last night that nothing was heard yes

the search. A. H. Egan, a brother
of the missing man, has gone to Mon

Peak and another into the South Fork
country- It will be at least three days

Houston spent part of the day here,
returning to Bolton tonight. He has
given up all hope of seeing Egan
alive. Houston said that the last words

As he made the above remark Egan
pointed east and almost directly from
the railway. Houston said regarding
the time after leaving the car:
"We stood on the track and exam
ined the compass. Mr. Egan remarked
that Bolton was almost due north, and,
thinking that he knew the locality,
we did not question his judgment. Mr.
Egan wore extremely heavy trousers
and vest, my oiled canvas hunting
coat, roll felt hat and rifle. He had at
least twenty cartridges."

While still in a serious condition, the
physicians now have hopes of the
young woman's ultimate recovery, al
though it will be several days before
she is out of danger. Her fever is still
high, and again last night she was
delirious for over an hour.

Famous Suit and Counterclaim Is at
Last Decided by Three Arbitrators
Agreed* Upon by Both Parties —Dr.
Schadle Claims Result Is a Victory
For Him.
The suit of Dr. Jacob B. Schadle
for $21,000 against Charles H. P.
Smith, of the brokerage firm of C. H.
F. Smith & Co., over the sale of 1,000
shares of Manhattan, elevated stock on
May 9, 1901, has been compromised by
the board of arbitrators to whom the
controversy was submitted. By the
terms of the award both the claim of
Dr. Schadle against Smith for $21,000
and the counter-claim of Smith
against Schadle for $15,000 are can
celled, and neither party recover any
thing from the other on account of
his respective claims.
The note and mortgage for $15,000
deposited by Dr. Schadle as security
on margins remains a valid obligation.
The findings close with a recommenda
tion that Emerson Hadley fix the com
pensation of the arbitrators.
Dr. Sehadle brought suit in May this
year to recover $21,000 damages for
the alleged illegal sale of 1,000 shares
of Manhattan elevated stock during
a stock flurry on May 9. Smith de
nied that the sale was unauthorized
and put in a counter-claim for $15,000
for an alleg-ed balance owed him by
Dr. Schadle on^jthe-deal.
Suit Was; Tried Twice.
The suit wad twice tried in the dis
trict court and in both instances the
jury disagreed. The parties .to the
suit entered into a stipulation for an
arbitration of vthe suit. Cyrus "Wel
lington was selected by Dr. Schadle
and J. W. Lusk by Mr. Smith. Thc-se
two selected a { third arbitrator, H. P.

Oct. 10 and the" award handed down
Saturday. ••■' -•• •

self. If I had riot brought suit for
$21,000 they w^ftild have sought to col
lect that $15,000 claim and I would
have been out; that much. Now, al
though I do riot get my claim, neither
do they get theirs, so it is a practical
victory for me."

Judge Seldon P. Spencer, of St. Louis,
Addresses a Y. M. C. A. Mass
Seldon P. Spencer, a judge of the cir
cuit court of Missouri at St. Louis, ad
dressed a mass meeting at the Young'
Men's Christian association rooms yes
terday aftern&on on "Men Who Are Not
Ashamed." The meeting was attended
by about 200 men and a sprinkling of
women. W. M. Parsons, of the interna
tional committee of the Y. M. -C. A., pre
sided over J.he assemblage.
Rev. George M. Morrison opened the
meeting with prayer, and Rev._ W. B.
Gray, of the Pacific Congregational
church, pronounced the benediction. A
pleasing musical programme was con
tributed by the Orpheus, quartette and
the Globe Business College orchestra.
Judge Spencer's address was a stirring
plea for belief in the Bible as the in
spired word of God, and for a more open
acknowledgment of religious faith. He
said in part:
"If ever the nation needed men who are
not ashamed of their faith, it is now.
in this present age. Not only in the city
and state, but particularly in the national
life, we must look to them in this hour
of need. The men who have faith must
be the bulwark of the nation.
"I am constantly reminded of the com
mand of the Apostle Paul: 'Be thou not
ashamed of the testimony of God's word.'
There has been in the progress of the
world an inclination to throw doubt upon
the inspiration of the Bible, upon the mir
acles, upon the story of the sun standing
still, but all these little creations of
man's puny brain fade from sight when
<3od steps upon the scene.
"When God told Noah to build an ark
of gopher wood and gave him the dimen
sions, was there any apparent reason for
it? Why Noah probably lived in a little
valley, flowed through by a rivulet where
there hadn't been high water within the
memory of man. And when Noah started
to build his ark, his neighbors laughed
at him; made fun of him. The scientific
neighbor told him that more than four
inches of water couldn't fall in that valley
in a year, and that the weather conditions
never portended a flood. But Noah built
his ark as God commanded, because he
had faith. He was not ashamed."
Judge Spencer made two addresses in
Minneapolis yesterday, and is completing
a tour of several states.
During the Past Three Years Mrs.
Shepard Had Been a Confirmed In
valid, Hence the Fiftieth Anniver
sary of Golden Wedding Was Not
Celebrated—Was Seventy-Two Years
of Age.
Mrs. Frances Aurelia Shepard, wife
of David C. Shepard, the builder of the
Great Northern road, died yesterday
at the family residence, 324 Dayton
avenue. Death resulted from heart
failure and came as the culmination of
three years of illness, during which
time Mrs. Shepard had been a confirm
ed invalid.
Several times within the past year
her condition became such that her life
was despaired of, and it was only
her great abundance of latent vitality
that brought her through several spells
of severe sickness.
Began to Fail Two Weeks Ago.
About two weeks ago there was a de
cided change for the worse in Mrs.
Shepard's condition, and since then she
sank rapidly, although at" times she
rallied. However, little hope of her
ultimate recovery was entertained by
I the family because of Mrs. Shepard's
j advanced age and her extremely weak
I state.
Mrs. Shepard was born in New York
seventy-two years ago. She was the
daughter of Phillip Parson's, a western
New York pioneer. Miss Parsons
was educated in the schools of her na
tive state.- In 1852, when twenty-one,
years of age, Miss Parsons was mar
ried to David C Shepard, a railroad
contractor. Five years later, when the
railroad boom in the Northwest was
just in its infancy, Mr. Shepard and his
wife removed to St. Paul and since
then have resided here.
During her forty-five years of resi
dence in St. Paul, Mrs. Shepard had
been prominently connected with the
work of the Episcopal church, and also
many charitable and benevolent insti

Deutscher Tag Observed for the First
Time in New York City—A Ger
man Prirfce Present.
NEW YORK, Nov. 9.—"Deutscher
Tag," a German festival which has
been celebrated in other parts of the
country for over twenty years, was
observed for the first time in this city
this afternoon and evening. Ten thou
sand Germans gathered in Madison
Square garden and made festival in
memory of the first landing of Ger
mans in America.
The ceremonies were honored by the
presence of Prince Henry yon Pless,
the representative of the German em-
peror at the dedication of the new
Chamber of Commerce, accompanied
by Herr Herman, representative of the
Berlin Chamber of Commerce.
The family of the late Gen. Franz
Sigel occupied a box as special guests
of honor. L. A. Wienian, president of
the Baltimore Saengerfest association,
accompanied by a delegation of Ger
man Americans of that city, took part.
The garden was decorated in the Ger
man colors, black, red and white, al
ternating with the American colors.
Dr. H. A. C. Anderson, president of
the United German societies, under
whose direction the "Deutscher Tag"
was given, delivered the address of the
day. He called attention to the fact
that other nationalities' in the city have
a distinctively national holiday, while
the Germans make no such demonstra
tion. He said a German day such as
the Irishmen's St. Patrick's day was.
the design of the Deutscher Tag. He
declared that since the days of Herki

and Sigel and Carl Schurz in the Re
bellion, Germans had done their duty

peace, in science, art, music and agri
Dr. Anderson reviewed the flag-bear
