II , Moore of Con necticut' the report was accepted as read end placed In the hands of the committee on the annual report. The committee appointed to examine the xeport of thn executive committee reported ns follows through Rev. Russell T. Hall of Connecticut : REVIEW OF THE YEAR. "The committee appointed last year for the examination of the report of the execu tive committee beg leave to offer a report , after a careful cxSmlnatlon of this document , wli loli la a somewhat extensive matter , as you will .see. The Innovation which win Inaugurated last year had , I suppose , for Its liu the securing ot a careful examination of so voluminous a report and a presenta tion of the salient points contained In it at this time. Of course , I have no desire to present more than a very brief statement of theio points , which Is as follows : "Tho committee to whom was referred the report of the executive committee of the Congregational Home Missionary Hoclety beg leave to report as follows : "The work of the sixty-eighth year ot the society Is presented In this volutnlnotu re port with all the fullness of details , which lias been cuitomnry.and Is doubtless wise. The record of that work carried on this year In forty-seven stales and territories- , and among foreigners of many races ns well as among native Americans , Is so vast and multi farious ns to make n respectable volume In Itself. Wn have examined It with care , and on the whole we consider that the locicty has abundant cause for ttninltfnlncbs over the acopo and results cf the year's woik accom plished In spile of the most serious financial disturbances known In thU country for a generation. It is true that fewer new churches have been organized than In the previous year , but practically the same num ber of missionaries 2.000 In all have been kept nt work. The additions to the churches by confession have been 1,259 more than In 1892 , and the report for 1894 , which will In clude the fruit of many revivals during the past winter , will doubtless disclose ellll more remarkable gains. Hard times seem once more to have been times of refreshing from on lilgh , both In our self-supporting and our aided churches.1 As In former years. It ap pears that the hcmo missionary churches nro much more fruitful In conversions than the stronger churches , and thereby have proven the reason of maintaining them , "In three new directions the society has fccen pushing UH work of late years. Were ro glad to find that an unusual degree of Biicccf.i has attended the labors ot the work- cm In each Ot these now fields , ns compared \vlth the older work. Missions among Ihu foreigners have been extended , especially in Massachusetts and the northwest , and tested by the number ot conversions this .ivork has been more successful than any other of the successful enterprises ot the society nnd It * auxiliaries. It Is encourag ing lo find that Scamlanavlans , Germans , Trench , Bohemians and others nro good lunterlnt for Congregational churches. The licw work In the southeast seems also lo be prospering as far as numbers go , and also to nil appearance In the establishment ot piopcr relations with the negroes nnd their chinches connected with our Congregational tody. There scorns no reason to doubt the final success of tlicso efforts to build up tmo churches ot our order In that region , ncceptlng gospel Ideas ot icllglous equality among all races of men. Wo are also glnd to note thu rapid organization ot the women of our churches Into unions auxiliary to the Jlcine Missionary society , nnd hope for Mill further progress In this direction. "It is upon the financial side of the situ- Htltni , and that alone , that wo discover nny Ulsheartcnlng facia in I hit. report of the cx- ecutho committee. These matters nro pre sented so completely and so Intelligently that It U easy to grasp the salient points. /The / wholly impreccdcnled and unexpected loss of $150,000 In receipts Is of courto the prime tact. Hut upon further examination | t oppturt that more than half ot this ( hrlnkago Is In legacies , which probably will partly at least bo made up hereafter , when estates shall have been 'icttled that arc now Jn executors' hand * . A uhrlnkago of 170,000 n contributions from the living U unplean- nt , ot course , but not nt all iturprlnlng or Bmlnouj , In view ot the. pecuniary disaster * ct tha year past. Expenditures have been Increased very little during the year , and ( or tbo Immediate present and the n ar fu ture appro rlatloni QAYI bern rcJucoJVe \ regret the necessity of this latter measure , but we can see that no other course Is possi ble. COMMITTEE COMMENDED. "Wo also regret the largo debt of $125,000 , but wo cannot sec that the executive com mittee has acted unwisely either In the ex penditures that necessitated the debt or In borrowing the money , The work of a vast organisation Ilko the Homo .Missionary so ciety cannot bo arrested or even curtailed suddenly without serious damage , and any honorable expedients that will tide over an emergency and thereby prevent damage are Justifiable and commendable. Wo sympathize with the secretaries and executive committee In the distress nnd suffering Imposed upon them when nn overdrawn treasury compels them lo cut donn appropriations and restrict the natural and wholesome expansion of their work In many directions. Wo also sympathize with the brethren In the field In their personal privations , and their disap pointment over the withholding of the mentis necessary for the development of the work entrusted to them. It seems proper also to acknowldgu here , though the fact belongs to the record of the coming year rather than this ono , the generosity nnd devotion of the entire administrative force In reducing their own salaries 10 per cent. Such a spirit as bus been Hh6wn In the homo ofllco and tn the field ought to touch the hearts of our people In all the churches , and should help greatly toward the speedy wiping out of the debt. "As an expression of the feelings of the society at this time , and In view of the state of things dlsclobcd by the sixty-eighth report of the executive committee , wu offer the fol lowing resolution : "Resolved , That we rejoice with the ox- ccullvu committee in the great and encour aging spiritual results of the work of the year Just closed , and heartily approve of the mean * ii cd by them to meet the deplor able diminution of contributions and lega cies , whilewe lament thu Inevitable re striction of the work of the society and the contraction of a seilotis debt. We urge upon our brethren and upon the chureheH the necessity of special and determined effortM to Increase their home missionary contributions to such n figure as will wipe out the debt nnd remove the present puln- ftil restriction of their woik. "I think I need add but a word In support of these resolutions. The work we have un dertaken must go on , nnd the loss of con tributions and legacies nnd the present finan cial distress should offer to properly consti tuted , conscientious Christian men a reason for giving largely to help the society out of Its present dlfllcultles. There are two things that might bo enlarged upon here. The first is the exceedingly favorable spirit ual allowing that has been made. If It could be fthown that the missionaries were Idling , Inefficient and unproductive ; If tt could bo shown that there was no result worth while , we should feel dlfferenlly , but when acces sions to the churches have been swollen as they have been and where revival after re vival Is reported , nnd where the churches seem to be gathering strength In every di rection , it Is time that the debt should bo paid and the work of the society should be not icstrlctcd , but enlarged. The other point Is this : H Is sometimes said that there Is never more than ono duty offered to nny man at any ono time. That may be true In n certain' Ecnso , but every pastor of a contributing church knows that the number of applications for aid are Infinitely more numerous and pressing than by any possi bility can be attended to , pud the selection of objects to be aided Is a necessity , and I therefore believe and I think I speak In behalf of the committee In this respect- that the churches and the pastors and our brethren everywhere should see that If they are lo do any work that It there Is any work of our church that more than another demands continuous and enthusiastic sup port It Is this. The Congregational Home Missionary society demands and should re ceive at this time above all others a recep tion In our affections and a support with our substance which shall make glad ( he hearts of the Eccretailca aud missionaries who have h.een bearing this heavy burden and making these sacrifices that the work might go ou. 1 move the adoption ot the resolution. " On motion ot Mr. Moore the report was accepted and thq resolution adopted. OWICERS ELECTED. Election ot ofllcerH followed. Dr. Clark moved thai this matter be left to the nom inating committee to nominate a ticket. Carried. Dr. Clnrk explained that there are three classes of voting members a llfo member , who Is made so by the payment by himself or some friend of $50 ; the annual member , appointed by his churcli , two from each church ( each church Is entitled to appoint two delegates to this me'etlng ) , nnd annual member appointed by the state body. Messrs. Stokes , 1'owcll nnd Wild were ap pointed as tellers. Dr. Clark H Is suggested that all minis ters entering their names upon these cards enter their names as reverend , or if they want their titles to appear they can enter them. A Member I move that all honorary and academic titles be dropped. Mr. Mooie It Is the usage of the national council nnd has been for a long period ot tlmo to omit these titles. The motion was cart led. The president then called for the report of the nominating committee. Dr. Sturtevnnl The committee on nomina tions Is prepared to report. Wo have been furnished with a list of the present incum bents and the same will be presented to a considerable extclit. There Is In fact but one change which wo have made from the present Incumbents , and that Is the omis sion ot the name of William A , Watermann of Illinois and the substitution ot the name of Hon. W. II. Alexander of Omaha. We most cordially love and honor Brother Watermann , and are full of tenderness and sympathy toward him. As the vice presi dents are from different states , and a chapge ot locution gives us two vice presidents in Illinois , for that reason the committee has made this substitution.

Ul cu > 8lon of the Tobacco and Agricultural Hchcdiilcs Occupies the Day. WASHINGTON , June 6. Before entering upon the discussion of the tariff today the senate passed seven bills , one of them being u house bill and the others senate bills. Among the senate bills passed were : Granting right of way through the Wlnno- bago and Omaha Indian reservations In Ne braska to the Eastern Nebraska & Gulf railroad ; granting right of way through the Leech Lake Indian reservation In Minnesota to the Northern Minnesota Railroad com pany. Mr. lUackburn reported favorably a reso lution from the committee on rules for the appointment of a special committee of five senators on the existing public distress , to whom should be referred the petitions of Morrison I. Swift and others bearing upon this subject. It was adopted without divi sion. sion.When the tariff bill was taken up today Mr. Jones asked leave to withdraw the com promise amendment of the tobacco schedule which made the rate on leaf tobacco and unstcmuied 11.60 and $2.26 respectively and restore the house amendment , In which the rates are ? l itml $1.23 respectively. The move was a surprise to senators on both Hides , as by agreement the compromise para graph was adopted pro form with the under standing that the subject shall bo considered later. The other Jones amendments to the to bacco nchedule were adopted. Tney fixed the rates on tiller tobacco , unstemmed , nt 35 cents per pound ; stemmed , nt 60 per pound ; tobacco , manufactured or unmanufactured , not specially provided for , 40 cents per pound ; hiiuff , CO cents per pound ; cigars , clcarettes and cheroots , $4 per pound , aud 25 per cent ml valorem ; paper cigars or cigar ettes , to bo subject to the rates Imposed on cigars. The next schedule was produce and pro visions. All llvf animals not specially pro vided for , were made dutiable-by the bill at 20 per cent. Mr. Dolph then proceeded to deliver the last Installment of his prepared speech be gun some two months ago. Ho finished at 2:30 : , after sp'enklng about two hours. Mr. Dolpb , In the course ot his speech against the agricultural schedule , said Oregon spoke for herself. She had set the seal of her condemnation on the free trade tariff. From advice * ho had received Oregon had elected n republican governor by from 10,000 to 15,000 plurality ; two republican congressmen by about 10,000 plurality , and the entire op position to the republicans In the legislature was less than twenty out ot a total ct ninety.

' COLUMBIA O.Y A. ItT.lXl ) . 1'roualillUy that the Waters Will Itccodn Very Slowly'for nt Leant Ten Days. PORTLAND , Oik. , Juno 6. News has been received here from the upper Columbia re gion which Indicates that the worst of the fiood is over. Snake-river Is falling and the Columbia Is stationary. In this city the water reached the thlrty-threo-foot mark at noon. On Front street the water Is deep enough for navigation by a large-sized river craft. At Ash ptrect. It Is seven and one-half feet deep. Many docks have dis appeared to the cave's , and 'are only kept from floating by heavy loads of machinery , etc. , stored there , On the cast side one can count a dozen bulldlhgsp In the flooded dis trict ready to go down. At The Dalles the river Is fifty-eight 'feet and three Inches above the low water. The only houses doing business are the groceries and mar kets. Thirty blocks are under water nnd the rise of a few morq feet will Inundate the entire portion ot the town under the bluff. Mcmaloosc , Island , the burial place of the Indians for many ( years , Is almost under water , and hundreds 'lot skeletons are being washed away. I A telephone message received late this afternoon from thcjlc ks says that the con tractors have succeeded In strengthening the bulkhead so that It will not go out. They have had large , 'jjangs of men working for six days and nights , nnd Immense quan tities of gravel , bnjsh nnd stone have been used. It Is now bellcve'd that all danger Is past. The Unlon'j Pacific Is In very bad shape near the locUs. ' The river has cut into the mountain for a quarter of a mile. The bluff where tfte 'railway formerly ran presents a face SOt ) feet In height. The weather ibureau , predicts that the river In this city "will reach Us maximum height at midnight and remain stationary until Thursday - ; day , with a tendency , to' fall. When It com mences to fall jt.wlll bo'very slow , not over four inches a uaVvjertat 'JeaaCten.Jays. At Rlparla the Snal 'river has fallen "ten inches In the irfst foiiV hoilrs.Tile Columbia Is also' ' falling nt ' about llic same rate nt Umatllla. " News from down Ihe Columbia river shows > a most deplorable condition of affairs. Fishing - , ing has been suspended And the great stream has flooded the ryliolo country .on both sides. Houses have been carried away , farms inun dated and crops destroyed. There has been great loss ot stock. Anything approximating , an estimate of the damage Is utterly Impos sible. The loss Is very Jieavy and will leave a great many In destitute circumstances. Suffering and want prevail among Ithe families of many rancliiera. The suspension of operations on all the street car lines , ex cepting the second street road , Is growing to be a serious Inconvenience to the thou sands of people , and particularly those liv ing In the cast side suburbs. Chief Engin eer Buchtell lila morning caused another engine to be placed on a , barge. This makes three engines now so situated that they can reach nearly every part of the flooded district. This morning the Southern Pacific overland brought * a heavy load of passengers and mall. The' Union Pacific mall was sent in over the Southern Pacific line and there were full ten Ions of letters and papers from the cast , which have been delayed several days. The condition of both the Madison and Morrison street bridges Is serious. The pressure of the water from 'underneath has broken up the approach on either side. I.lttlo Fresh Haiunco at I'ucblo.

DECLARED AN ARMISTICE Deputies and Miners Agr.o to Await the Arrival of the Militia. BELLIGERENTS ONLY FIVE MILES APART Ilcntttlcfl linprlnon Noiv piper : ICeportcri ninl Ullt Not Allow Operator * to Send Out CRIPPLE CREEK , June C. A message was received from Bull Hill early today announcing that a part of the miners' icouts , who were'stationed In the vicinity of Glllett , encountered n body of 400 dep uties Just after dawn. The scouts re treated before thp deputies and quickly gave the alarm to the miners' garrison. Preparations wcro made to rcceUo the deputies , and a battle Is expected within a fey hour * . Glllett Is only five miles from Bull Hill. A dense fog prevails , nnd this will help the miners , who know every foot of the ground. The telegraph wires between Cripple Creek and Bull Hill have been cut and It Is diffi cult to get news. The deputies have arrived at Beaver Park , five miles from Bull Hill , where they have gone Into camp. The miners feel that the reported settlement of the strike reached at Denver by arbitration was merely n trick to cause them to disarm. They say they "will resist any attempt by the sheriff's deputies to arrest any of them until the strike Is settled. After the mines are opened , they say , the sheriff can arrest any of the miners he wants. The leader of the deputies has offered not to attack the miners If they will sur render 200 of the strikers for whom the sheriff has warrants. The strikers refused and will resist any attempt to make arrests. The deputies have two Galling guns and one Napoleon , By an agreement reached this afternoon there will be no battle between the fortl fled union miners on Bull Hill and the army of deputy sheriffs who are now encamped on Beaver creek. The aspect of affairs was decidedly waillke until 3 o'clock this after noon. Although the deputies cut all the telegraph wires between this city and Mid land , the miners were quickly Informed by their scouts of the advance of the sheriff's force and prepared for battle. They were willing to surrender to the militia , but de clared they would never submit to arrest until after the troops arrived. Mayor Lindsay and President Parker of the First National bank called up Sheriff Bowers by telephone nnd begged him to stop the depu ties until the troops could reach the camp. Sheriff Bowers agreed to thfs , and there Is every rtason to believe that there will be no further hostilities. Alexander Mcln- tcsh , representing the miners , announced that they would lay clown their arms imme diately on the arrival of the state troops. The deputies will follow tne state troops to the miners camp and servo warrants which they are said to hold for 200 strikers. DENVEIl , June 0. Governor Walto says that the movement of the deputy sheriffs against Byll Hill to arrest strikers is In violation of an armistice. TELEGRAPHERS MUZ55LED DENVER , June G. The telegraph opera tor nt Divide says that deptitles with rifles are standing guard ovci.Itlni ; and will not permit him''to , ' send any "me/sages about1 what Is going on or deliver messages con veying Instructions to correspondents. As the deputies control all the telegraph offices On the Midland Terminal road thcro Is no prospect of receiving news until the censor ship Is abandoned. With regard to tltflr refusal to abide by the terms of their agreement the mine own ers say that after the Insurrection Is put down and their property restored to them they will arbitrate as to wages , hours , etc. Sheriff Bowers soys ho has warrants for the arrest of 200 miners , which he will serve. Ho expects the 'strikers will make a deter mined opposition. In accordance with Governor Walto's In structions the entire state militia Is on the move for Cripple Creek. General Brooks has received private Instructions from Governor Walte , which , In connection with the move ment of deputies today , may reopen the question nt Cripple * Creek nnd hasten a bloody conflict. General Brooks' Instructions are to proceed with his troops as far as Colorado Springs ; when there he Is to get the consent of every mlno owner to abide by the articles of agreement and not go u step further unless his mission there Is suc cessful. If successful , ho will then go to the Cripple Creek district and get a like ac knowledgment from the miners. If assent of both sides Is * obtained he Is to carry out the Instructions of the governor as outlined last night , but not until then. One of the grievances of tha striking coal miners In Colorado has been the Issuance of scrip In payment for their work , which they have been forced to accept as money , and1 use at the companies' stores. Governor Walto claims that this Is a violation of United States law and will ask the federal authorities to make a thorough Investigation. The attempt to Induce the miners In thu northern part of the state to strike In sym pathy with those , In the southern part has failed. Rev. Myron Reed , pastor of the First Con- gregatlonullht church , has been summoned by the board ot trustees of that church to explain his expression of sympathy for the strikers at Cripple-Creek and condemnation of the deputy sheriffs. The sociological sentiments to which Mr. Reed has given ut terance In his sermons of Into have dis pleased many members of his congregation , and about half of the audlunco walked out on Sunday , to show their disapproval. DIVIDE. Colo. , Juno 0. Fully 1,000 dep uties , under command of Sheriff Bowers , left here at an early hour today to march to Cripple C'eek. Thcro were 200 cavalry men under command of General Charles Adams. Kx-Chief of Police Veutch of Den ver , who has been In charge ot the deputies , did not go with them. Heavy firing bus been heard since the deputies left , and It Is supposed an engagement has taken place between deputies and skirmishers front Bull HIM. The newspaper correspondents worn nil locked up until C o'clock nnd wires cut In order to prevent news from being sent out. out.Under Under Sheriff Mulllim Invited all the news paper correspondent ! In camp Into a room at the Hardy house at 10 o'clock last night and Informed tlitin that the deputies were about to move on to Bull Hill , nid as It was deslrrd to have the fact kept secret , the correspondents would be kept under Ruard for a few hours. There are 1,200 dep uties In the army which left here nt 2 a. m. Sheriff Bowers did not no forward with the deputies , but rctuined to Colorado Springs for a conference with Brigadier Oener.rT Brooks , The deputies are under command of n young military man , enlisted a * a pri vate , whose name Is not known. It was the Intention to proceed to Heaver Park and send a committee to Bull Hill to demand that certain strikers be surrendered. If the request Is not compiled with the march to the hill will be resumed. Owing to washouts on the railroads It Is not expected the state troops will reach Cripple Creek until after the striker * have capitulated or a battle has been fought. NOT ANXIOUS TO riOIIT.

In. , Juno G.-Speclal ( Tele gram to The Dec. ) Company F of Oskaloosa went to Kvnn this morning and camped at the mouth * of the American Conl company's mine. Aa In nil former canes the strikers kept to their camp and made no demonstra tions. At 0 o'clock th'- strikers took a vote on moving against the miners In spite of the militia. The vote was u tin and the conservatives prevailed. Company F re turned to Osknloosn at G:30 : a. m. As the strikers only make threatening demonstra tions In the early morning when the mlncm go to work , Company F wjll bo ordered out every morning nt 4 o'clock unless the strikers give up the fight.

The presence of the t\\o regiments of the Maryland Na tional guards , numbering over 1,000 men , has had n disquieting effect upon the strikers. For the Hrst tlmo they fear the advent of now men to take their places In the mines. It Is believed now that It Is a question ot only a little time before tlfo sober second thought will prevail , and that the rush for work will begin. By order of General Douglas the troops are to bu used only to aid the civil authori ties. ties.At At the EcKart mine about seventy-five men went down Into the shaft of the 350 who usually work there. This was n few- more than were at work yesterday , and WMS considered a most encouraging sign. At the Huffman mlno twenty-live out of 123 usually employed wont to work today , and nt the Allegheny the full complement of about fifty men went to their rooms In the mine. In view of the mass meetings nndiparades last night by the Eckart miners the out look for a .speedy return of a majority of all the mtneiM under mllltla protection Is o.vcppdlncly good. Thu people , liero resent the sending of the mlllthi. They say they were not needed. An attempt was made to blow up with dynamite the house of Charles Lancaster , a miner who refused to go out. Lancaster and his wife were asleep In the house nt thn time , and their escape from death was * hardly less than miraculous.

McKEESPOHT , Pa. , June C. No attempt has been made to start up the tube works today. The strikers are swarming around the works and the depots. Every point In being watched by them and trouble will surely follow any attempt to Introduce new workmen or deputies. The eastern deputies expected by river or trnln today did not nppear. When the first train arrived from Braddock there was a largo crowd at the station to meet thu offi cers and when It was found they wcro not on board the strikers dispersed and went to the mill entrance. The strikers have obtained three largo cannons , two of which were used by the Homestead strikers two years ago and thu other from Dutmcsne. They were plnnlsd In a commanding position on tie | river bank about 200 yards apart and manned by eight men each. , The position Is such that the guns can be trained en the Rlverton bridges and the Plttsburg.

The train was hauling several cars of coal , taken from a siding near Clay City , and was bound for Chicago. The train carries the United States malls , and It was thought the miners would permit the train to come to this city when aware of that fact , but they were un ruly and obstinate , and refused to allow the train to move. The coal was sidetracked. 1'rOHpcct.i of u .Settlement ( Irowlng Loss. PITTSHIMIO , June G.
