The document is addressed to the clergy and laity of the church and contains some 7,000 words. The bishops refer to the successful deliberations of the convention, to the progress in the work of revising the constitutions and canons, and to the need of more systematic and general contributions for the work of the church. A paragraph is devoted to the heroic self-sacrifice of the missionaries in China, and to a iostification of the church's policy in keeping them there, and sending more to join them in the work. The fact that four new dioceses and two new missionary jurisdictions have been created, is pointed to as an evidence of the healthy grovvth of the church at home. In discussing church unity, the bisiiops are not hopeful of immediate or general results save the spreading of the sentiment for unity throughout Christendom and the letter makes this significant statement. "We are indeed between two perilous tendencies. On theoni»' hand there is a demand fm conc^Sons Hvhieh will make it easy for men^rs of christian bodies, not in cOmmticion with the church, to enter the ministry and to transfer themselves bodily as congregations with faint and feeble guards of soundness in their forms of worshsip. On the other, there is a plea put forth by some to enter into negotiations with the bishop of Rome with a view to reunion which is now known to be possible only by absolute submission to his unecriptural and unlawful demands. The wise thing for us to do is to hold fast to our position." W. C. T. U. OFFICERS. Miss Frances Willard is Again Elected President < to be register of the land office at Douglass, Wyo., and Jared S.

BjaTiMOM, MdrrOctr 22—Mibb -Frances Willard was again elected president of the Woman's Christian Temperance Union, at the annual election today, with practically no opposition, although compUmentary votes were cast for sevehd other prominent workers. Other officers were elected as follows: Vice président-at-large, Mrs. L. M. N. Stevens; corresponding secretary. Mrs. Katharine Lente Stevenson, ot Massachusetts; recording secretary, Mrs. Clara C. Hoflfman, of Kansas City, Mo.; assistant recording secretary, Mrs. Frances J. Beauchamp, of Ken. tucky. The days proceeding were opened with devotional exercises conducted by Miss Elizabeth Greenwood. The venerable Mother Thompson, the original temperance crusader, offered a prayer. The report of the committee on credentials showed that forty-three states were represented and that 425 persons were present and entitled to vote. The vote for president resulted as follows: Miss Willard 361 ; Mrs. Louise Bounds, 9; Mrs. yorbes, Mrs. Buell, Miss Ack-erman and Mrs. Hoffman, 1 3ach. At the conclusion ot the ballot the vice president, Mrs Stevens, took the chair and the recording secretary was instructed to cast the unanimous vote of the convention for Miss Willard. The latter made a brief and feeling address, thanking the convention for the honor and referring to the long and pleasant period of association between herself and the members of the W. C. T. Ü. She also spoke of her recent ill health and the benefit she derived from the trip abroad. The balloting for the other officers then proceeded with the result mentioned. Washikgton, Oct. 22 —Great Britain's radical steps on the Venezuelan question continue to excite the liveliest interest in official and diplomatic circles. The demand has not yet reached Caras. cas, as is evident from the fact that Minister Andrade has not yet heard from his government on the subject. Some of the latest reports from London cause comment andcriticism among officials here. One of these statements sttributes to Ambassador Bayard the declaration that the Uruan incident is independent of the boundary question, and that the United States can lake no part in the former incident. It is pointed out here that the two questions are inseperably connected. The Uruan incident as basedon a claim that the Venezuelans arrested Sergeant Ber-herns, of the British constabulary, on British soil, and that this indignity must be repaired. The Venezuelans claim that it occurred on Venezuelan Boil. As it becomes more and more evident that the British government is disposed to make it appear; that the ^^nian incident is parallel to the por-intb affair and may therefore be trMted in the same fashion without leading to the intervention of the United States, officials here are pointing out essential points of difference in the two incidents and Mr. Bayard will doubtless be instructed to emphasise these in his further representations on the subject to the British foreign office. In the first case Great Britian demanded and obtained an indemnity from Nicaragua on the ground that her national honor had been outraged by the summary expulsion of h^r representative, although the latter was only an humble consular agent. The United States consented to stand aloof on this occasion on tne theory that a nation bai a right to re dress an insult. But in the Uruan affair it cannot be maintained for an, instant that the British government has a right to demand redress for the] arrest of its officials unless it shall be first established that they were within British territory, and thus the whole issue is raised as a preliminary.PRESIDENT CLEVELAND Is Given a Continuous Ovation by Southrons.

Baking Powder company against Lewis Bender, a replevin suit concerning three barrels of crackers, this morning. The attorneys, W. J. Vesey, for the plaintiff, and Charles W. Kuhne, for the defendant, are making their arguments this afternoon. John and Henry Vordermark ap-, peared before.the^^^rd cuf commission '^ers today in ■refeiffia^Ch to the stJe -of the Ndir Havmi gravel road. The appraised price is $4 700 for the six miles, and this is all the commissioners will pay. The owners want $5,500. The commissioners will probably be able to buy it at the appraised value. Judge Allen Zollars was attorney for the defendant in the case against Adam Earmes for assault tried in Justice France's court yestereaf.. The defendant was fined $1 and costs.

In an opinion written for Slate Auditor Daily, Attorney-General £etcham holds that special circuit judges are entitled to extra pay; but that the amount should be deducted from the pay of the regnlar judge for whom tbe special judge is sitting unless it can be shown that a special judge is absolutely necessary. Recently there has been complaint from different parts of the state because circuit judges who were called upon to sit as special judgei charged for three days' work when they were actually occupied only one day. Several days ago, at the time the case came up for argument on demurrer to the petition. The Sentinel gave the position that Judge O'Rourke intimated he would take in the case of William Kieler vs. ex County Clerk Daniel Souder and his bondsmen, for charging illegal fees while in office. Yesterday he announced his decision and he sustained the demurrers to the paragraphs of the complaint which asked penalties, but those paragraphs in which the plaintiff seeks only to recover the illegal fees taken, the court overruled the demurrers thereto and held the paragi aphs were good. In the other similar suit, filed by Levi Thim-lar against Souder and his bondsmen, the demurrer in the complaint was overruled by Judge O'Rourke. This case is thus ready to put upon its trial, which will bring out the facts and a decision on the merits of the case. RAILWAY FRANCHISES. What a Taxpayer Has to Say on the Subject. Editor ökntixel: The contest before the board of public improvements for street railway franchises is of the utmost importance to all of our citizens. If, as we all believe, our city is to grow in the future the time will come when such franchises will be of the greatest value. That the men now owning the present street railway realizo this is very manifest. It is a close corporation, and no one can purchase its stock. It is the moat valuable franchise within the gift of the city. The experience of other cities proves this. Now to give that or any other corporation the exclusive monopoly of our streets for railways, without any supervising control is very foolish. The offer made yesterday for the first time to permit inter-urban rail ways to share in the use of the present street railway tracks, is apparently fair to companies desiring to enter the city, but what protection is proposed to the public against exhorbitant charges? Does the present company propose to make any reduction of fares to the laboring classes ss offered by Mr. Everett? As it is understood, none at all. The time will surely come when the present fares will yield enormous profits. The public should receive a part of the benefits. Mr. Editor, it should be a cardinal principle with our city government that every franchise granted where the people are so vitally interested, shall be subject to the reserved right to regulate the charges. No corporation should be permitted to receive more than will give a fair return upon the fpipital invested. Whenever the profits in the operation of the street railways get beyond a point that gives a fair per ceniage upon the investment, the rates of fares should be reduced to keep the profits within the limits imposed. This is much better than to require a revenne to be paid to the city to become a corruption fund for the benefit ot unscrupulous politicians. Let the common people, the laboring classes, the poor of our city have the benefit of reduced rates and the revenues for rapport of the municipality be raised as heretofore. But if no such conditions are afiSxed to the privileges now asked for, farewell to any future reduction. The corporation will not voluntarily grant what they will be under no obligation 0 do. ; Tax Payer.A And So Dick Lesher Kicked in Two Windows. Two Plate Glass Windows Knlned.-Ed.

Kio DK JANaiuo, Oct. 22—It is semi-ofiBoially stated that Great Britain has not made any communication receotly to Brazil on the subject of the Island of Trinidad. No decision on this subject, it is added, has been reached.RED HOT DEBATE Instantly Ended by Mayor Oakley's Speech. The street Car Figrht Reached Its Climax This Forenoon—IJamls. takable Announcement. The street railway fight which has been going on in this city for the past two or three months reached a climax this morning at the special meeting of the board of public works. Yesterday the old company, the Fort Wayne Electric Street Railway company, found that the franchise which is being given to Mr. Everett provides that any and all suburban roads, which so desire, may enter the city over his tracks and also fixes the rates to be charged by Mr. Everett for the use of tracks. This was agreed to by Mr Everett and is the very thing the old company refused to agree to some time ago when Everett wanted to come in over its line. The old company then changed its stand and offered to allow suburban companies to enter - the city over its tracks upon terms that would be fair to all, but the old company's officers were ngt willing to state what such terms would be. This was at yesterday afternoon's meeting of the board. Another meetinf^ was arranged for 9 o'clock this' forenoon when it was thought the old company wonld be willing to present some kind of a proposition in regard to other lines tn-tering the^oity over Its tracks. Mthia the |]|k«r«)i^ p&rties were present. J. ^ Barrett, J. iff {Bm, M, ^8. ^bjMi 'Pe D« H. Kbbison and' Ri % MdOoniald were there for the old company and G. E Everett and H. C. Hanna for the new line. The old company announced that it had no proposition to make, but that it was willing to make private ooatraets with ou^tside roads which desired tons) its tracks. This was done for the purpose of preventing l£r. Everett, if possible, from securing a franchise' for a street railway of his own on any of the streets of this city. This umonnoe-ment did not satisfy the members of the board and they proceeded with the preparation of the contract with Mr. Everett. A constant exchange of words and arguments was iddulged in by the street car people for some time and it finally developed into a red hot squab ble in which Messrs. Hanna and Bsr-ret flaunted persohalities at each other. Just when the wrangja s at its most intense heat, Mayor Oakley, who had been thus far a quiet listener, but who could restrain himself do longer, arose and said: "Gentlemen, this street railway question has been 'before you and ns for three^months. You have kept up a eim-stant fight on both sides and yon have not reached an agreement. Now, while you are talking for your own internts want you to distinctly understand that the city has some interest in this matter that will not^ be overlooked. I am here and this board is here for the purpose of protecting the rights of the citixens in all things, and I intend that it shall be done in this case. There is one point that you all may as well understand now and that is that from this time on no franchise will be granted by the city to any new company, and no^iextensions will be granted to the old company nnless the city receives pay for it. 'Hereafter not one foot of street railroad will be built in the city of Fort Wayne unless the city is paid for the privil^e. I care not whether it affects the old company or the new companies, they will all be treated alike. There will be no backdown from this position in any case." The mayor's speech fell as a bombshell in the camp. It most effectually ended all the wrangling, and those who had been in the thickest of the fight withdrew for consultation. Nothing new was presented to the board, so an adjournment was taken until 2 o'clock this afternoon, at which time the coi^ract with Mr. Everett would be signed. The ordinance granting the franchise* will be sent to tue council this evening. That body will refer it to the committee on - contracts and franchises will rest in the hands of that committee for two weeks, when it will be reported back to the council eitherfavorably or unfavorably and be voted^^upon. -''. ■ ' = exposition Vilis^cftftrt^e one proposed would be M b% the ei^ in the way of businesf^,, ¿|fc fvould bring the people hem.
