ampnlgn many pleasantries wcro published
anccrnlng the religious beliefs held by the
ovcral candidates for t.ho highest ofliccs ,
ml ll was said that whichever candidate

lardly possible that thcro would have boon
10 many Presbyterians m the cabinet had

Mrs. Cleveland Is also a member of that de

President Harrison worshiped In the
Church of the Covenant , also Presbyterian ,
nnd Dr. Hamlln was known for four years
much to his annoyance , as the president's
tor. During the present administration
Sis Sunderland of the First church enjoys
that honor , if it bo ono. But is saiil that It
Is not an honor coveted by the Washington
paslors least of all by the outspoken pastor
of the First church , whq has recently cele
brated his fortieth anniversary. It is said
tnat Dr. Sundorland was strongly opposed
to Mr. Cleveland's llrst clcntlnn. and after
the inauguration , ho objected to having his
church known as the prcsilcnt's church
under n democratic administration. His be
coming the president's pastor was duo to Mr.
Cleveland's sisters remembering that tholr
mother had n pastor in Batavla , N. Y. ,
named Sutherland , and they desired to go
to his church in Washington. The plucky
parson who had preached abolition from his
pulpit nt the risk of his life , said that ho
' would not take back a word , but ho not only

It is eminently fitting , therefore , that the
general assembly of the Presbyterian church
should moot In Washington this year , and
preparations for their coming have been
made with a lavishncss seldom equalled , and
a glance at the several committees will show
the character of the men who are to assist
In welcoming the followers of Calvin to the
Capital city. The finance committee- per

In the afternoon the election of moderator

many topics under the head of routine busi
ness to come before the assembly , such us
the work of the eight boards of the church ,
which have received nnd expended durlns
' the year between W.000,000 and ? r ,000,000 in
10 way of benevolences. In addition to the
. [ nuch larger sum contributed by the church
lor congregational expenses.
An Important Mnttar.
In addition to this work , which , In Itself ,
would occupy the time allotted for the
jiHSombty , the great question of revising the
confession 'of ' faith is to come before the
body for final consideration probably. Foi
t\vo or three years the revision question ha :
"been uppermost , but after an able committee
had spent two yours of patient work , usine
all the light shed upon the subject by more
than aw presbyteries , It has sent down r
report to the presbyteries which meets tlu
approval of neither the revisionist ! ! nor tlu
nnti-revulonlsts. The result Is Too con
scrvatlvo for the llrst class , and too llbera
for the second. Of 10U presbyteries
whoso action on the revision qucstioi
has been noted , twenty-four have falict
to take action , thirty-four upprovci
the entire report , tlfty-uno disapproved the
entire report , sixty approve in part ant :
sixty-six desire u now creed. Tills leave :
the revision a failure , for under the nou
rules two-thirds must approve a change li
the constitution of the church , and as more
than ono'thlrd have failed to express ap
provnl , the work of two years is parti )
thrown away , The question now arises
shall u now creed be prepared I
The subject , however , which transcend :
, nil others this year Is the appeal from tin
, Now York presbytery , or rather from tin
prosecuting committee of the presbytnry , li
the case of Prof , Brlggs of Union seminary
\vho has been on trial for heresy for tw <
years. Dr. Parkhurst of New York , in i
recent sermon protested against tlio prosen
attitudeof the Prosbyterlan church , ai
voiced la the last two general assemblies
on the ground that it has crowded but o
'Bight and out of right "tho one ovangollca
, ttruth that can make cither this church o
any other church a redemptive power In tin
world , and that It Is spending In tticologlca
speculation nud In matters of occlc'iasilca
politics time nnd rawer that are designed o
Uod to bo spout In converting the heuthet
at homo and abroad. "
KKorts fur Harmony.
' During the year an effort has been uiad
by thn liberals to secure peace , but the con
eervatlvM say that there can bo no poac
while a disturbing clement insists upon It
( particular views being taught in the sotnl
liinrlcs unit preached In the pulpits ; that th
'church nt lurgo and not the New York pros
by lory alouo must decide what the uhurcl
'believes. ' Some BOO ministers In varlou
parts of the country have signed what ha
'been ' tolled a "Pica for Peace nnd Work.
ftnd u circular lias also been sent out by A
D , V , Hamlolph of Now York , for the laymu
to sign , calling upon the coming assembly t
explain what the last assembly mount who :
, ) t adopted the now famous deliverance of hi
errancy , which was uaoptcd almost , if no
quite , -unanimously on the last day of tti
There has boeu an attempt to combine th
BHgcs case and the nsvjmbly deliverance ,
the liberals declaring that at the mooting In
Portland A now dogma had been Usued ,
while the conservatives assort nn vigorously
that It wns simply a statement of what the
church 1ms always held. H must bo ad
mitted , however , that had the question of
Dr. Brlggs's orthodoxy not come before the
church , the necessity for the deliverance nt
this tlmo Would scarcely have been felt so
urgently by those who favored Its adoption.
The conservatives say that If the liberals
nro so much disturbed by the fear of a split
In the church , their fears can bo allayed by
Dr. Brlggs1 resignation being accepted by
the directors of Union seminary ; but Dr.
Brlggs and his friends say that they nro not
lighting for themselves , but for freedom In
the church , for liberty for those who
the ultra-con-
ore oppressed by present
scrvatlvo views taught nnd held
In certain quarters ; that if it wcro ono man
who was nt stake , they could afford to yield
rather than force the Issue , but , under the
circumstances. It 1s better to go down with
Hags flying. After the trial in Now York ,
Dr. Edward L. Clark , a member of the pres
bytery , a leading pastor and director of
Union seminary , resigned his pastorate be
cause ho could not hold the views which
seemed essential for a man owning allegiance
to the general assembly. An effort wns
made to rotain-htm In the presbytery , but ho
was flrm In his determination to withdraw ,
and ho accepted a call to a leading Congre
gational church In Boston ,
Election of Moilrrntnr.
The Brings case will come before the as
sembly indirectly on the opening day , when
an effort-will bo nmdo to secure for moder
ator a minister friendly to the professor ,
for the moderator appoints nil the standing
committees. Should the liberal candidate
fall to secure the election , he will by courtesy
bo placed at the head of the Judiciary com
mittee , In the coming assembly the most Im
portant chairman appointed. The appeal
from Now York will then bo referred to the
Judicial committee , which will report that It
bo entertained or not entertained. If It bo
not entertained , that will settle the matter ,
and Dr. Brlggs , who is now acquitted by the
Xew York presbytery , will DO adjudged or-
hodox. If , however , the assembly entor-
nitis the appeal , the question will arlso
whether it shall bo sustained and Judgment
aken or whether It shall bo remanded to
lie synod of Now York for action.
Among the candidates for moderator nro
Prof. Craig of Chicago , Prof. Hoberts of
Cincinnati. Dr. Baker and Dr. Dlckoy , both
of Philadelphia. It Is.thought by many that
Dr. Hoberts will be elected , as his friends
arc sorely displeased with the action of the
Lane seminary directors , who have removed
Jilm from his olllco and kept in the seminary
Dr. Henry P. Smith , whoso trial for heresy
was going on in Cincinnati last fall when
Dr. Brlges was on the rack in Now York.
Not a few of the presbyteries have in
structed their delegates how to vote on the
Brigcs case. In the Baltimore presbytery ,
for instance , a resolution was presented re
questing the general assembly to take final
aotion in the matter , and not send the case
back to the Now York synod. Tills was laid
on the table , although ona of the clergymen
who seconded the resolution said the fact
that the presbytery had elected Dr. Joseph
1' . Smith and Dr. J. P. Leftwleh , as its com
missioners to the assembly was a guarantee
that the presbytery would bo represented
by two men who would substantially support
the principle of the tabled resolution , as they
are strictly orthodox and wish the Brlggs
case settled once and for all , and not to bo
sent , back to the synod , only to return on an
appeal next year.
Of Different Vlewg.
Several leading presbyteries , on the other
hand , have Instructed their commissioners
to vote to have the case remanded. Several
presbyteries have overtured the assembly to
decline to entertain any appeals in Judicial
cases made directly from the presbytery or
bv a prosecuting committee ; the assembly ,
ifnecessary , directing the persons making
such appeal to have recourse for relief to
their right of complaint to the synod. It is
expected that if a sulllcient number of over
tures of this character is received by the
coming assembly that It will have an Indi
rect effect , at least , upon tno action in the
present Issue.
Detectives Arroat Two lion Who Have a
Queer Story to Tell.
Detectives Hayes and Hudson added an
other good Job to the record of the Omaha
police department yesterday. The two
offlcers were walking up Tenth street yester
day forenoon , when they encountered two
men whoso appearance marked them
as good men to watch. They
carried a number of tools wrapped
In paper , which wore foun.d to consist of a
spade , a common iron rod and a mineral rod.
When interrogated they claimed that they
were going to visit a grove near Cut-Off
lake where tnoy had boon told a man was
buried together with a consideralo fortune
which had been placed at the foot of his
coflln. The officers had an Idea that they
might bo bodysnatchors and took them to
the police station , where they gave their
names ns Albert A. Steward and C. Osbom.
The first mentioned claimed to stop at the
Wirth hotel. His trunks nnd belongings
were also hauled to police headquarters
from thcro ana the contents examined. The
first thing found was a Magic money maker ,
with directions on the inside of the box
which Inclosed it how to turn out good
Compromising Correspondence.
A letter from Beaucloro , Flu. , dated
January 21,1803 , and addressed to Steward ,
was found with a price list for con
federate bills enclosed , giving nriccs
at which 10,000 lots could bo furnished at
fl per 1,000 by F. C. Sawyer. Transcripts of
documents from the United States district
court of Nebraska showed that Steward
had , In 1893 and 18'Jl , como in contact
with Uncle Sam's ofllccrs. His name was
slated A. D. Stewart , alias E. M. Holmes ,
alias G. G. Leaning.
From these it was further gleaned that
several indictments bad been found against
him , ono for mailing "nonmaUablo" matter
nnd another for receiving letters ad
dressed to fictitious names. On
the first charge ho was convicted by
Judge Dundy , who assessed a fine of $50 and
costs against him. He was also convicted
to pay n line on the second charge. Aside
from those ho served twenty-four days In
jail upon another conviction.
In a Journal , upon the cover of which the
name "J. J. ICauffman , Yale Center , Kan
sas , " appeared , wore found a lot of Confeder
ate bills and script , as well as advertising
matter. A list of questions to ho propounded
to T. J. Malioney , M. V. Gannon , John
C. Cowln , Leo Estello , E. It. Duffeo ,
J , P. Breon , Judge Ambrose and other
prominent attorneys of Omaha , In relation
to n cuso in United States court , was also In
the trunk.
Another document showed that Steward ,
while on the eve of closing a &I,5M real es
tate deal In Grand Island , was arrested by
oftlrors for violation of the postal laws
and that ho pleaded guilty and received a
twenty-four day sentence.
Uwiiml Up to Suiting ( ireeu Goods.
When seen by a DUB reporter Steward ad
mitted that ho had advertised at ono tlmo
as having had green goods for sale ,
which had brought him in conflict
with the federal authorities , but ho denied
ever having had any such goods In his pos
session. Asked what ho gained by those
advertisements ho said , "Well If they wort
answered and good bills were enclosed ]
would have that much money. "
He claims to have lived hero since
last December , nnd said that hi
was a real estate dealer , comini
hero from Grand Island , to whlct
place ho came from Gate Center , Kan. Ol
the workings of the apparatus for manufac
turlng greenbacks ho disclaimed all knowl
edge , saying that ho had bought It because
U was advertised. The confederate bills hi
said ho had had In his possession a long tlmi
and ho had intended to consign them to tin
flames several timesbut had omitted to do so
Madam Clayton , the clairvoyant on Tentl
street , had informed turn and Osborn of thi
oxUtouce of the underground fortune noai
North Omaha and both hail proposed to nun
it up.
Shortly after the arrests wcro made tin
mother and sister of young Osborn appearoi
In the police court and the former ploaaei
camostly with Judge Berka for tui
release of tier boy who she declare !
was Innocent of all wrongdoing la the mat
ter. He bad simply , made the acqu&lntanci
of Steward and did not know any thing abou
the lattor's tntocedenU.

' Joe the Turk , " whoso proper narno and

to P. L. LoomiB of this city , having loft
Mansfield , O. , over the Lake Erie &
Western and Chicago , Rook Island &
Pacific railroads , crossed the bridge and
pulled into the union depot. The train
consisted of thirty-nix flat cars , hand
somely decorated with flags , bunting ,
etc. , and with its load of bright and at
tractively painted machinery , had
thousands of admirers along the route.
This is the most valuable single ship
ment of machinery over made , beina
valued at $117,500.00.
"Tho train was in charge of Mr. P. L.

agent of the Hock Island road , and wag
accompanied by "W. II. Stillwoll , super

The trip was ono continuous ovation ,
the entire run of nearly 1,000 miles be
ing made by daylight only , and stops
made at all of the principal citations en

OMAIII , May 13. To the Editor of Tni
IIEK : In your Issue of May 10 , under tin
headline , "No Color Line Is Drawn , " I au
represented as having salt } that the colonx
men of the south , did not emigrate to tin
north because the labor organizations of tin
country discriminated against thorn. It wll
require no argument to provo that this state
mcnt Is a fact with which the public 1 :
familiar. Your reporter has presented sovei
interviews , six of which nro from president ;
of labor organizations , for the purpose o
showing that my statement was not fouudei
on facts. In the first place , the bare fac
that very nearly all of the carpenter work
painting , plastering , blucksmlthlng , as wo ]
as the work In the railroad shops , unloi
depots , electrio power houses , etc. , is don
by white men , is of itself sufficient proof o
the truthfulness of my statement.
Is it not a fact that 75 per cent of th
negro population of the north and west an
southerners ! Everybody knows that. Is i
not a fact that the same work In all of th
largo cities of the south is performed by th
nogrot Of this the southern white mai
makes his boast. Is It true that this Is th
moat profitable labor in the north and west
Wo arc all compelled to answer in the afllrm
atlvo. Then , why is it that , this samu negr
who floes from the south to rid himself fron
political oppression refuses to engage in thl
same work with which ho is most fainllta
and for wulcU Uo can earn from $3.00 to f
per day , nncl labors for II.50 and In many In
stances tl per day ! , Your reporter would
have the pumlo belief o that it Is simply bo-
catiso ho chooses td d6 so. It is n hard matter -
tor for him to convince an unprejudiced pub-
1 that his position Is correct.
The Interviews themselves help to estab
lish the correctness dROny statement. Mr.
Morton , president of thttlron Molders union ,
says that the constitution of his union does
not prohibit colored people from joining , but
If nn application should bo made to It by n
colored man , thcro n > ffJBt bo some question
raised ns to whether they should admit him
or not. Hold admission , Indeed , Is this.
Why docs ho make this stAtotncntI Simply
because ho knows thnChls society would not
admit him. Ho Is kltfS enough to say that
the color of or.o's skin should not cut any
figure. If It did not , In this particular field ,
why does ho not say so.
Mr. Hopkins , president of the Machinists
union , says : "Yes , the colored man Is ex
cluded from our order , the word 'white' ap
pearing In our constitution. " Ho has stated
the fact as It is. And while the same word
may not appear in many of the others , it
had as well , judging from the results of their
You must remember that thcso nro "oath-
bound secret societies , " the law nnd doings
of which nro known onlyi by their members.
While they have no written law that bars
the negro , the fact Of his not being n largo
part of their organizations , ns well as the
largo number of applications made by them ,
nnd which have been refused , say to the
world that they have an unwritten law , the
Interpretation of which Is : "No negro need
apply. "
In evidence of this fact wo ofTer a few
statements from gentlemen who Imvo np-
plloj. They speak for themselves :
Mr. Henry 1'ylor Is n llrst-class painter
and a gentleman. Ho says , that ho tiuido
applications to the "painters { union. " His
money and petition wcro kept for some time ,
after which they wcro returned with no ex
Mr. Henry Holiday says that ho wns served
the same way.
Mr. Tyler says that ho tried to Join the
brlckmasons union , but wns told by them
that they had no time to consider his applica
tion and up to this morning they had not
found tlmo. And yet Mr. Parker would have
the people believe that thcro are no colored
brickmnsons in Omaha.
Mr. John Bailey is an engineer. Ho made
application to the Order of American Sta
tionary Steam Engineers. Mr. T. A. Murry ,
n white gentlemen who signed his applica
tion , snys that ho was refused because ho
was a colored man. Ho ( Murry ) being pres
ent when the application came before the
union knows whereof ho speaks.
Mr. Dave Gilbert , ono of the loading en
gineers of this city , says that he has signed
applications for colored men , but they Imvo
been refused because they were colored.
Mr. Charles H.irpstor says the same thing.
Mr. George Garl , a first-class painter and
paper hanger , if mother one who is barred
for the same reason.
Mr. Benton Bell acknowledges being guilty
of receiving thirty black balls in the engineer
union because Ho was not a white man instead - ,
stead of n quadroon.
These , Mr. Editor , are a few statements
of the many thousands of my race who have
been and are being deprived of a fair chance
to earn an honest living by the sweat of
their brows for themselves nnd families.
I admit that some of these organizations
have colored members , but It U a fact that
as a rule white men > ylll not work with
them. They cannot scijpro cmplojment on
that account. Tlio man who gives them
work Is ridiculed aji'd in many Instances
made to suffer UnancliU loss.
It is not my puriws'r to create hostility
toward "organized labqr. " No , bo it far from
that. All I ask for-my race is that it
be given a fair and equal chance In ovcry
und all spheres of Hfe , , and enjoyment of
every right and privilege guaranteed to the
citizens of this grand .and glorious republic
that boasts of being "The land of the frco
and the homo of the brave. " That I have
the support not only o'f all truly pious men ,
but of ovcry man whq Is an honest Ameri
can , I am fully persuaded. I am yours for
Justice to all men , [ H. B. PAHKS.
