THE COLOR LINE. Richmond Club Afraid That Color Line Is Xot Strong Enough. Richmond, Va, Jan 29. The wom an's club here' had a lively discussion this afternoon over the question of joining the Xational Federation of Woman's Clubs, and a strong objec tion was brought against membership on the ground that tne club in Chica go, which is a member of the general organization, had admiited a negro woman into its membtrship. Tlie Richmond club is made largely of the most exclusive women in the state, many old Virginia families being rep resented. - . . Mrs Rebecca D. Lowe of Atlanta, president of the Xational Federation of Woman's clubs, addressed the Rich mond club, giving information about the purposes of the organization. One of the women called attention to the fact.-That ":the proposition to admit; a negro, member in Chicago had been favorably looked upon. -Mrs Lowe replied that tins was only one club and meant nothing. - There was likely to be nd negro club in the federation, as negro women had a flourishing federation of their own. One of the women named the social and educational advantages de rived from the woman's club here. It could get anything It wanted from the city council, and the very idea or sug gestion that a colored woman might apply for admittance was too utterly Hstasteful to be tolerated for a mo ment. Mrs. Lowe declared that she was frequently asked why the southern women did not join the federation, and upon being pressed for a reason said it was Just as she had found it here the southerners are so perfectly satisfied with the conditions that exist. She further, -declared that wherever clubs existed the leading men are the wom en's best friends when they find out that women have no desire to be men. "After ten years of club life," said Mrs Lowe in closing, "I find I am cfoser to the feminine side than ever and like men better." SANITARY CONDITIONS. Medical Society Will Try to Relieve r;.

Boston, Jan 29. There was Intense excitement at a fire in the West End early last evening, caused by the nar row escape of several persons from a burning building at 57 Auburn street and the -daring rescue of a part of the occupants by the firemen and police. All but two pieces of apparatus that ordinarily respond to the alarm from box 414, which sounded at 0:28 o'clock, had answered another alarm from box 13. nine minutes before. This caused a delay in the arrival of the appara tus, box 414 acting as a second alarm ami calling second alarm apparatus. Otherwise the nre would probably not have amounted to much. The house is owned by a man named Jacobs, aud is occupied by George Mo roug as a lodging house. The rear basement he lets to Joseph Birge, and it was here the fire started. The cause, it is said, was Birge upsetting a kerosene lamp. The flames spread so rapidly that the occupants of the room barely escaped. A citizen ran and- pulled in the alarm, and Fred Leary of Ladder 12, who was on a day oil and visiting the adjoining house, rendered valuable aid in rescu ing Mrs Ernest Riekenbury from the second story of the house, and Mrs Mary Ferguson, 2S years old, who jumped from a second story window and was caught in a blanket by per sons under Leary's direction. By this time the fire had cut oil the escape of every person in the upper part or the house by means of the stairwav. Patrolman Peter J. Xorton of station 3, In trying to get up the front stairway, had his hair and mus tache badly singed. To the fact tnat he was on hand an unknown man un doubtedly owes his .life. The latter started to come down the stairway, and, being met by the flames, he jumped, landing in a heap at the bot tom of the stairs,- to be caught by Xor ton and carried safely out. His burning garments were what set lire to the policeman's hair and mus tache. Then a cry was raised that there was a man in a rear attic room. As access by the stairway was cut off, Florence Donahue, a member of com bination ladder S, reached the roof by the adjoining house, and, climbing out of the attic window in the rear, walked along the eaves through. Throwing up the window he caught hold of the man inside, who later proved to be James Ferguson, 44 years old. the hus band of the woman who had jumped. Ferguson was so overcome by smoke that Donahue had to pull him out of the window and carry him in his arms back to the window in the adjoining house. They passed him in to Patrol man Xorton. who had followed him up. Both Ferguson and his wife were taken to the Massachusetts hospital. There the former was found to be suf fering from being overcome by smoke. His wife, Mary, escaped with a slight "injury to one arm and the shock due to the excitement. The lower part of the house was prettv well burned out, involving a loss of about $1,200, and the adjoin ing house. Xo 5D. owned by a Mrs Burns and occupied by Hugh Mc Laughlin, was slightly damaged. BALLOTS WERE STOLEX. Attorney's Methods in Xebraska Elec tion Contest Xot Approved by Court. Lincoln, Xeb 29. The supreme court has just put to an end by the severity of condemnation to a species of rough and ready, wild west style of deciding a closely contested election. Hitch cock county is located along the main line of the Burlington, out in the alfal fa and long grass country. A year ago last fall W. A. Stewart, a republi can, and Henry Lehmann, a populist. were rival candidates for county clerk. The county Is very close politically and the contest was very exciting. When the ballots were counted Stew art seemed to have a majority, but Lehmann made various charges of fraud. The retiring county -clerk was a populist and hearing that Stewart iiad organized a band of cowboys to come down and steal the- ballots he summoned a guard. Among the num ber was Lehmann, who with the oth ers slept In the court house for several nights awaiting an attack. The cow boys never came, however, and while the contest was proceeding in the courts Stewart took charge of the of fice. One day soon afterward Stewart stepped across the street, leaving his office door unlocked. This was part of a scheme. While he was away his attorney walked into the office and hastily piled all of the ballots into a grip he carried. Then lie slipped away. A few hours afterwards the theft of the ballots was discovered. The suspected attorney was found to have left town. A posse of populists started' after him. They chased him forty miles over the prairie, through the alfalfa and the sage brush before they caught him. A search of his ef fects disclosed no ballots. The posse retraced the route, and miles back they found the ballots in a gunny sack in a ditch by the road. This was not until two days after the theft. Stewart was ousted by the district court and appealed to the supreme court. He insisted that the fact that Lehmann slept In the , clerk's office vitiated the ballots so far as their use in a contest was concerned, and that they were really no "more than waste paper. The supreme -court, however, refused to take this view of the case and remark that this plea must have been an afterthought of the attorney who had raced over the prairie for hours with what he evidently did not at that time regard as a bundle of waste paper.'

Philadelphia, Jan 29. The Rev Dr C. H. Hobart, a professor in Crozler Theological seminary, in speaking to a resolution presented bv the Rev Kerr Boyce Tupper to .the conference of Baptist ministers yesterday, made a sensational speech in which he charged representative's of the Roman Catholic church in Xew York state, in Cuba, Porto Rico and the Philippines, with stealing public funds and com mitting other Iniquities. The resolu tion dealt with the separation of church and state. It was adopted and a motion passed that a copy "be sent to Pres?Sent McKinley. The resolution recites that I lie re cent acquisitions of iands that have heretofore been under the domination of a government that was subservient to the dictates of the Roman Catholic clergy makes it Incum'oenon the na tional government to determine upon some system of education by which the people may be fitted for the civic uutles wnich will devolve upon them. The ecclesiastleak leaders who have previously had so much to do with the government and education, the resolu tion says, will for a long time fail to see the wisdom of the American idea of the separation of church and state, and will make strenuous efforts for the continuance of their old privileges and customs. The resolution voices a protest against the recent decision of the PhiTTpptea, cnTUjuisslon which gave religious teachers eettTJJieKequest of parents permission to give religious instruction to Filipino children in schools set apart for secular educa tion. The resolution ends with an ap peal to the president to be loyal in the defense and propagation of the idea of the separation of church and state. Dr Hobart made a vigorous speech. He said that the Philippines were al ready subject to "Roman Catholic Jesuitical control" and that "the visits of certain bishops to the White House" might serve as an explanation. "There are now," he said, "five cities in the state of Xew York where Rom ish priests, contrary to law, are steal ing money from the public- funds to support their schools. It Is well known that in Cuba a like condition of affairs exists. We must fight Rome or It will defeat us. The archbishop, let me say, who is in charge of . the campaign, is the same one who "was in charge of the . Indian school fight. He knows all the lines and their weak places. and he does not sleep all of the twenty-four hours either.

There appeared to be something In connection witii rour liquor dealer- that perplexed the police and urevent-i " ed the authorities concerned from giv-i jug meir names to rne press, xne cases . against those in the first batch which were not tried last week together witJU those of to-day will be called In the city court to-morrow morning. Two of the four liquor dealers ara Marcus Hellmana. Grand street and Daniel Murphy of Murphy & Son. West Main street. It is said the other two are not in business now and that the police will have some difficulty in locating them. That is the reason why their Identity would not be re vealed. There is hardly a liquor 'dealer irt the city- who hesitates to say that the next prosecuting agent will not the present one, ''Attorney Wilson Pierce. The liquor dealers, in vie what they say they . did at thi election and at the request of th ty commissioners, are s.?most mous in the statement that the; been used very meanly by the, cuting agent and that they wil nothing undone to prevent his pointment next June. They d believe his published statement he had nothing to do with the brin here of the two private detectives, ams, a student in Yale college, an dell, of Xew Haven; that they brought here by -'some of the best pie" in the city. All this the 11 dealers look upon as a subterfuge the lamest character by Mr Pierc The conduct of the county com sioners during ' the political, camp: last fall is considered, even by quor dealers themselves, now that time is gone by, as the most brazen impertinent they ever eneounten Senator Kennedy is making It w; for some of them just now at the e ital. The influence of the county co. missioners among the liquor dea of the whole city was apparent In. result of the state election in this c it was so open and barefaced, in that many of them are now heartll. ashamed of themselves and admit tha- the treatment they are now receiving from their appointee, the prosecutlna asent. is just what they deserve. ; Thcv contend that these private de tectives did not begin work wJthcAifl Mr Pierce's knowledge, for, they tak4 it that the strangers would have firsu informed themselves as to what recep tion their evidence would meet from Mr Pierce. They argue that they were considered by the co commissioners as possessing pon, inflnoti thev Kiirplv must have s power at' the polls, and that they courct hardly wield that in a Derter causa than their own when the opportunity presents itself the next time.. . . ; ; . , BURIED IN SXOW!
