M, Carmicheal and his wife, leader of the crusaders, got into the chnrph in spite of the admonitions of the judge who granted the reverend gentlemAn a decree of divorce last week. When the Rev. Mr. Carmichael rose to preach Sunday hall the congregation left the church, many of those remaining to demand that he vacate the pulpit. This he did and a church meeting was held at which Mr. Car-micael tendered his resignation as pastor of the Baptist church, which was accepted. He then asked for a letter to the church at Odessa, but objection was raised. After a stormy meeting the letter was grant by a, vote of 80 to 23.

Lake City, Minn., July 11.-The close watch of the men who have been on duty reliefs since Monday, in the hope that some of the bodies of the victims of the recent disaster would come to the surface, w"* rewarded by the finding of a total of 31 bodies. The gases which usually form in the human body after lying about.fortjr-eight hours in the water, were sufficient to give them the necessary buoyancy to bring them to the surface, and all day long the number of remains recovered has been increasing almost hourly. Bodies have been coming to the surface in the near vicinity of the wreck, almost too fast for them to be properly cared for. Twenty-four had been found floating on the surface ot the lake by noon, and during the afternoon seven more men vrere found. The bodies were placed in boxes and packed in ice as fast as they could be takian to a central point. At noon the twenty-four secured were taken to Red Wing, and as soon as the steamer could return the remaining seven were sent up to that place. It is stated that twenty-six out of the thirty-one found have not been identified. Two of the bodies were found to be those of parties whose names were not among the published list of missing ones. A dispatch from Red Wing says that there are still nine people missing from that city. Others are still missing from Diamond Bluff and Trenton, Wis. Nearly all of the watches found on bodies stopped at an average .time of 8:30 p. m. on Sunday night, so that it is thought that the wreck occuiTed about 8:30 p. m. Eight members of the First regiment, N. G. S. M, are detailed for all night duty in the vicinity of the wreck. The estimate of your correspondent ^of 115 lives lost by the disaster will probably be verified. IIEAIO rr, Representative Cannon Sizes Up the Current Fiscal Year.

Washinqton, July 17.-Representative Cannon, cliairmau of the house appropriation committee, is out with a statement about the revenues and expenditures of the government during the fiscal year, in which he says the revenue will overbalance appropriations. The .appropriations for the year justly chargeable to e.xpen8es for the current fiscal year amount to $i!17,500,000. Of this amount at least $20,000,000 will not be expended during the current fiscal year, which will cut the expenditures down to $207 ,000,<)00. To this sum, he says, should be added the permanent appropriations, $101,500,000, for the interest on the public debt and to meet the requirements of the sinking fund, making in all $309,000,000 chargeable against the revenues tor 1891. If the sinking fund be deducted from this sum, there remains $:i50,000,0ii0. The ordinary revenues tor the government for the fiscal year ended June 30, 1890, are re-portedby the treasury at $402,i)83,000. Under existing laws there is no reason to anticipate a less sum from the ordin-axy revenues duiing 1891. The postal revenues for 1891 are estimated by the postmaster general at $65,414,000, mailing a total of $4 ostal Telegraph Bill. Washington, July 17.-Mr. Sawyer introduced in the senate a bill prepared by the postmaster general to.carry out his ideas for the establishment of a limited post and telegraph service.
