Houston, Texas, July 30.
Some two months ago Rev. Sam
Jones held a revival here andetirred
up the town.
As a result of his work the gam
bling houses were closed up and the
Sunday closing law was enforced,
and a number of citizens formed a
league to see that the
LAWS WERE ENFORCBD.
Since then there have been two
factions in the city, one favoring
law and its carrying out, and
another element condemning the
law6 and denouncing Sam Jones
AS A MOUNTEBANK.
Last night he was secured to
lecture here at Ilutchins Park
lavUion and he had a large au
dienee, composed principally of
adies, who occupied the pavilion.
It had been given out during the
day that a crowd of toughs had
been promised ten kegs of beer to
HOT TEN-EGG MR. JONES,
but this was discredited.
However, just as he was in the
middle oi ins discourse tnelignt went
out and a shower of egS from the
outside was thrown in on the
pavilion, most of which
STRUCK THE LADIES.
. Just then the cry of lire was
raised, and the audience began to
stampede, and some one on the
outside began to break up sticks so
that the noise would cause them to
think the pavilion was crashing.
At this juncture cooler men rose
to their feet and got the assemblage
quiet. After a lapse of five min
utes the hall got lit up again and

for a brief period.
But seeing the ladies were greatly
excited he soon brought it to a close.

Very little has been heard from
Senator Vance since the cablegram
that he threw up everything except
his seat in Congress on the sea voy
age. North Carolinians will be in
terested in anything that interests
the junior Senator whether at home
or abroad. Rev. R. A. Young, D.
D., of Tennessee, is traveling in Eu
rope and met Senator Vance. We
quote from his letter in the Nash
ville Christian Advocate :
We are comfortably quartered in
London at an inn where we have
stopped twice before. At the table
adjoining ours we have the compa
ny of a friend of my boyh6d Zeb
Vance, of North Carolina. He and
I parted at Washington College
forty-five years ago. With no in
troduction or hesitation we shook
hands instantly. We are both get

we know each other at this distance
of time and place? Senator Vance
is accompanied by his wife and son.
In the evening he sent up the fol-

We did not talk about ourgelves,
but of the boys we knew long ago
of their history, successes, defeats,
death. Then we spoke of the
chances in religious history and
worship. At the close of this con
versation, he looked me earnestly in
the face and said : "Young, you
have read the history of the Church
and have now seen modern Christi
anity in all its phases. Is not our
good old country meeting-house wor
shin the purest and best?" To
which I replied, with emphasis, "It
is." And then I delivered my mind
on every species of Ritualism. This
is the germ and cause of all the
evils that have crept into our beau
tiful and holy religion.

World's Fair Committee Does Not
Meet With a Warm Reception.
London, July 31 A Paris dis
patch says the reception of the
Chicago Fair Committee was little
more than polite. The feeling
there is very lukewarm toward the
American Fair, owing partly to the
absorbing interest of the European
political situation, and partly also
to the fact' that the American dis
play at the late Paris Exposition
was considered inadequate, as
compared with countries vastly lees
(important in wealth, population
and industry. Again, there is evi
dence that the historic attachment
to America is gradually dying out
with the advance of time, and that
sentiment is supplanted by hard ma
terial interests. The move io re
peal the pork prohibition was only
undertaken under the apprehension
of the loss of the wine trade with
America and its success is not as

The reduction in the public debt
during July, treasury officials esti

millions; customs receipts during
the pnst month will aggregate about
fifteen and a half millions. In
ternal revenue receipts about four

This with five millions and a half
of repayments will swell the re
ceipts of the month to forty millions
against which there will be thirty
five millions and a half expenditures,
including $13,600,000 for pensions.
These figures point to an increase
in the treasury cash of about four

the equivalent of a reduction in the
