The lit. Rev. Dishop Doane. of
{Albany, expresses some forcible opinions
on the subject of divorce in Harper's
Weekly of December 36. He does not
believe iu the eff rt to secure a uniform
divorce law by congressional action
through an amendment to the constitu
tion, but be thinks that tbe churches
should speak more plainly about the
evil, and that they sh mid come to some
mutual understanding about their prac
tice. Tne most important end to reach,
however, is the moulding of a proper
public opinion. Referring to a much
discu&sed intuit. Bishop Doane avs:
"There
is a
grave question, and the

is any scriptuial sanction for dissolving

Senator tfann* Desirous of Turn
ing Chairmanship Into
Other Hands.
Washington dispatcn: When the re
publican national convention assembles
in Chicago next June. Senator Hanna
will step down and out as chairman of
the national executive committee.
This is his final decree, and no amount
of pressure will alter his decision. If
Piesident Roosevelt is successful in his
efforts. Elihu Root will succeed Senator
Hanna. He is to sever his connection
with the President's official family
next month, and intends to devote hh
time to the practice of law in this city,
but Mr. Roosevelt will put forth strong
inducements to get him at the head of
the national committee. They have
had several conferences on the topic
since tne ore udent became convinced
tiiat there was no string to Senatoi
Hanna's retirement. In the event that
Mr. Root can not be induced to take the
position, the place will go to Murray
Crane, former governor of Massachus
etts. He has triven a provisional prom
ise to the president to accept, but in
sists that several other men shall first
be approached. If all of them decline,
he will take the chair.
There is not the slightest doubt that
Senator Hanna means to retire. He
believes he ban served bis party faith
fully and sufficiently in the capacity ot
chairman, and insists upon stepping
aside for some new man. He feels tie
is entitled to a rest and wishes to quit
now in the flush of success. It is not
so much tbe managing of the campaign,
but the settlement of political join after
the election i i over that worries Mr.
Hanna. Evei since he became ''hair
man his mail has been extremely heavy,
requiring tne employment of a half
dozen clerk*.
Again. Mr. Hanna believes that with
the nomination of Mr. Roosevelt a new
order of things will ensue affairs will
pass into the hands of young men, and
ha is disposed to step aside and let them
run the machinery as they see fit.
In the event Mr. Root accepts the
place it will mark a change in the con
duct of affairs. He is opposed to spend
ing large sums of money, holding that
the free use of money in a national
campaign is a national scaudal. It
may be said he will take a positive
stand on this point at the outset. He
holds with President Roosevelt that tbe
party does not want men who ti.uwt be
hired to work for it.
At a conference l»etween the presi
dent and Mr. Root today the argument
was pnt foith that he rould serve as
chairman and conduct his law business
at the same time without sacrificing
either interest. Tne President is ex
tren»#ly attXHMM to have Mr. Root
accept.

The shooting took place In the bio"':
in which both parties live. Mrs. John

had been spilled in the hall, when
Kuhn stepped before her and fired
twice, wounding her in the breast the
hi-cond time.
Charles, the woman's eldest son,
rushed out Into the hall at the first
sound and helped his wounded mother
into her room. As he started to call
a doctor he saw Kuhn sf inlo his
own room at the front of the building.
Kuhn, thinking he had killed the wo
man who Lad disdained his advances,
entered his own room, reloaded his re
