LThe BrookingB band came up from the Chautauqua grounds this morning and treated the hard-worked business men to choice selections of music. Yankton Press, 15: Five thousand South Dakotans assembled at the Lake Madison Chautauqua Saturday to listen to Sam Jones. A good circus would have drawn as many people. However, the Chautauqua is all right. The Jones incident was merely an incident. Madison is the convention city of the state. This year we have had the State *£pworth League convention, State Mil lers1 association, State Homeopathic Medical society, and today the State Pharmaceutical association commenced a three days' session. These meetings, together with the Chautauqua assembly and the State Advent camp meeting which meets annually at Jjpake Herman makes Madison a very busy city. 1 Argus Leader, 16: It will be learned with regret over the state that D. P. Ward, for tifteen years missionary in South Dakota for the American Baptist publication socsety, has been transferred to California and will soon leave for that state. Mr. Ward's retirement from the work in this state wjll take away an en thusiastic, earnest, hearty worker, who has endured all the hardships of pioneer missionary work without the utterance of one complaint. The Arg^is Leader has had occasion many times to appre ciate the friendship of Mr. Ward aud along with his thousands of other friends in this state it wishes him full aucoess in his new field. A party of abont twenty tramps oame in by last evening's freight from the east and spent the day lounging about town until the departure of Conductor Calli ctan's train for the north when they took possession of an empty box car, ready for a northern tour. Trainmaster E. G. Perkins was present and sought the assistance of Officer Davis to eject the men from the train, but the officer thought that inasmuch as the men came by train they ought to be transported by the same conveyance. Mr. Perkins, ac companied by Officer Davis, approached the car and ordered the men to disem bark, but they failed to obey the com mand. One husky fellow jeered the trainmaster and announced that he was the doorkeeper of the car, and the train finally pulled out with its cargo of pre vious freight. It wasn't a bad looking gang, many of them young boys, and it probable most of them will help harvest .South Dakota's grain orop.

New ORIXASH, July 17.—A private letter received hore iroin Managua, Nicaragua, contain the following, wh ch is stated with every degree of authority: The concession granted several years 1130 for the maritime canal by the Nicaragua government for the construction of the Nicaragua caual, is a second time In danger of be ing cancelled, and if a seconi time an nulled will be otherwise apposed of. This second trouble is educed by threat tb bu ld a canal at a point called Tipi tapa, which would connect Lake Nic aragua with Lake Managua. When the concession was granted, it was agreed that in return for the concession, a canal would ba built at this point with in three years after the beginning of the work on the main line of the Nic araguan canal. Time Limit HM Expired. The time limit placed upon the com pletion o: this waterway expired in October, 1892, and the company has made nosteps toward carrying out their contract to the Nicaraguan government, which threatens the annulling of the concession, and their threats come in the form of a resolution ou the part of the president and hi* cabinet, which to all appearance is final. "The Nicaraguan Canal company will be notified soon that the Nicara guan government will hold them to their original proposition, and the canal at Tiputr.pa must be constructed and completed within a short period. In this they are firm, and should the canal company either refuse or neglect to carry out the original plan, the con cession will be annulled finally and for ever. It is generally understood iu Managua, that if the work is not begun very shortly, or if the canal company does not take steps immediately to con vince the administration that the Tip itapa canal will be constructed, the next meeting of congress of Nicaragua will ratify the cancellation of the con cession, which Minister Gomez would not hesitate to brintr nbo" Miner*' Wage* Increased. IsiiPEMiKG. cii., July 17.—The Cleveland Cliffy Iron Mining, company has raised the wages of employes from 10 to 25 cents per day, according to former wages pa:d. This is the first voluntary increase of the season, and is given because of the improved condi tion of the iron market. Powder Work* la D»ag«r. VICTORIA, B. C., July 17.—Forest fires are raging at Telegraph bay, four miles from here, and destruction of the Victoria powder works is threatened. In the magaziu# is stored 80,000 pounds of nitro-glycerine, and the gravest fears are entertained that the fire will reach it. The Atchafalaya river, in Louisiana, was named by the Choctaws. The word means "long river." Dr. Prits'i Crwua Wilrtf Powd«r WcHTs Mr HlgfcMt DR. A. T. WOLFF- A Cultured Lecture on "The Irrepressible Conflict, or Who Shall Rule Amer ica"—A. W. Lamar, aud the Usual Attractions. The equal suffrage platform meeting yesterday afternoon was well attended and addresses were made by Mrs. Pick ler, who presided, by Congressman Pick ler and Dr. E. L. Parks of Atlanta, Ua. Mrt,. Pickler told of the part equal suf frage played in the great women's coun cil at Washington last winter, the Major gave some very potent reasons why he thought women entitled to the ballot and Dr. Parks told of the hold the ques tion was beginning to take on the lead ing ladies of the south. "THE IIIRKPKESSIBLE OOKPUCT," who shall rule America? Was the theme of Rev. Dr. Wolff's discourse at 3:30. A large audience greeted the Doctor and before he got through hi stirred the audience up to a high pitch of enthusiasm and interest in his sub ject. He started out with the planting of two opposing civilizations on this con tinent in the landing of the Pilgrim Fathers at Plymouth Rock on the one hand and the landing of the shipload of slaves at Jamestown on the other in the same year. The strife between these contending civilizations disturbed our country for hundreds of years of its national existence and culminated in the civil war. It was the contest of right and wrong, and right triumphed. But other questions are still to settle. The infidel ity of France which culminated in the horrors of the French revolution was brought over to this country and cast its blighting influence on our institutions. Nations and rulers are responsible to Qod and divine law or they, too, wiil perish. The recognition of God was kept out of our constitution, and the same atheist infiuancels still at woik to undermine law and moral living. Church and state should be kept separ ate but religion and politics should not be divorced. Men should take their religion with them when they go to the ballot box. As regards, states, all legis lation should harmonize with divine law. Only in this way can a nation endure. The other, the French theory, has no higher authority for law than the will of the majority. This in the caBe of a godless majority, would simply be the law of "might makes right," the outcome of which was the "Reign of Terror" dur ing the French revolution. Again the legitimate consequences of voting God out of the affairs of nations was witness ed in Franoe only 24 years ago during the oommune. Murder, arson, plunder, savagery. That same spirit of infidelity permeates our social fabric today and is a standing menace to the perpetuity of our nation. Church property should not be exempt from taxation nor should public money be appropriated for sec tarian purposes. Liberal societies de mand the abolition of the oath in courts of justice, the abrogation of the Sabbath, the abolitioo of worship, of sncred mar riage, of property rights, all atheistic demands aud destructive of good society. Restrictions should be placed upon im migration, upon the ballot, upon out breaks by mobs aud all reforms to be qood and lasting must go deep down in to the ground principles of Christian life. This is the broad question, non partisan, non-sectarian, "Shall atheism or Jehovahjrule this nation?" The Doc tor's propositions were echoed frequent ly by spirited applause from his magnifi cent audience, more especially after he had been interrupted by some anarchist sympathizers who sought to break up his discourse. But the Doctor believes in the right of free and loyal speech aud from that time on poured forth a torrent of patriotic argument that cowed his assailauts and commanded the admira tion of the rest of his audience. BAND CONCERT. From 7 to 8 laat evening the Brook ings band gave a delightful concert on the lawn in front of the Grand View fol lowing out the program given previously in the THE DAILY LEADER. The fine playing of this band brings new enthu siasm to the Assembly and inspires on all sides. The concerts will be given each evening. At the auditorium, after the Chorus singing, the Artiste company entertain ed the audience, the 'argest since Sam Jones day, in delightful style. The singl ing, the reciting, the instrumental play ing, but especially the violin playing was par excellence. DIXIE DURING THE WAB was A. W. Lamar's subjeot last evening and as on former occasions the Doctor afforded his auditors no end of enter tainment and delight. His discourse was remineeoent of the days in Dixie when the South was preparing for and engaged in the war the enthusiasm with which they waked up to the ordeal, the divisions of sentiment, the privations and hardships of the four year's cam paign and the desolation of their coun try and homes, all laid waste by invad ing and devesting armies. It was a story full of pathos, tragedy, suffering, heroism, devotion and patriotism richly embellished by inoident and eloquence for which the Doctor is remarkable. X0TB8. The Round Table held its usual inter esting session, Dr. Parka occupying the first 20 minutes, general business the c«xt and last 20 mioutee taken up by an ciHTM ST. excellent review of the book on geology by Mies Beck. Tomorrow at 11 a. ra the Round Table will hold a spelling match in the auditorium for the prize of a set of Chautauqua books for the coming year. Twenty or more spellers must en gage on a side, the ladies being pitted against the gentlemen. The books for the course for 1SD5 can be obtained of Mrs. C. E. IIager, for $3, end the "Cbau* tauquan" for $2 additional. Overheard by a reporter: Lady "Dr. Wolff is the handsomest speaker that has yet appeared on the platform." Another lady—"I just admire Dr. Wolff he is not afraid to say what he thinks he just dressed those fellows down good." Gentleman—"The anarchists don't scare him much. Some of them went away as white as a sheet." Lady—"1 was afraid I thought there was going to be a tight, until nearly everybody applauded Dr. Wolff." etc., etc. The stockholders of the Lake Madison Chautauqua association meet in annual meeting at 2 p. m. aud were called to order by Presiddht Williamson. Dr. Parks offered prayer in opening. Presi dent Williamson made a short summary of the past four year exjwrieuce and ci lied attention to the gravity of the situation. The meeting is well attended, and indications point to a quiet business session. The Baptist social union of this Chau tauqua will meet this evening at 7 o'clock in the kindergarten tent. All Baptists in city aud assembly are cor dially invited to be present. On Friday afternoon the motor will leave Madison promptly at 5:30 aud will leave the lake at 6 p. m. to accommodate the excursionists of that day. All other motor trains will run on schedule time.
