CAIRO, 111., Feb. 23.—A reward of $1,000 1ms been offered for the man or men responsible for the attempt to destroy by fire the big tabernacle erected here a couple of weeks ago, in which Howard S. Williams, Hattiesburg;, Miss., layman-evangelist, is conducting a revival.  Searching thoroughly and determinedly, but without a single clue to guide them, Sheriff James S. Roche and the Cairo police are uncertain as to what shall be the next steps to be taken in their effort to capture the three men responsible for the fire.  The building was set fire to Fri- , day morning at 1:15 o'clock.  "Even H the tabernacle should burn, the work will not stop, for another would rise bigger and better  thin one." said members of the  t # s  _  f .  t  »ut  Ca#d TSHnistertal AssocTatifcn •iHattiedbui^'iaB DcuT0tS"'Re-' i f  A ®  i ne defea ought to move the authorities to strenuous action, that the culprits may be apprehended and punished for such a ft>ul crime."  It is doubtful ii more favorable advertising could have possibly been obtained for the revival, and if the persons who attempted to burn the tabernacle hoped to harm the revival movement, they blundered badly.  The fire had no more than been extinguished until Mr. Williams led a prayer meeting at the tabernacle. It was attended by a number of people. who had prone to the fire.  The watchman was inside the tabernacle, probably dozing-. He did not detect the fire. The tabernacle, built entirely of pine wood and pa-•per, «as a regular tinder box. But on the Instant the flames first flashed across the northwest corner of the tabernacle, Omar Nelms happened to be near the place and saw the fire and immediately turned in the alarm.  Patrolman Joe Steger was walk-, Ing along Eighteenth street toward the tabernacle when he saw the flash of fire and as he ran toward the building he saw three men flee northward alone Washington  sponse at Opening Ses sion of Meetings in Jackson.  ) (By Associated Press)  | WASHINGTON, Feb. 23.—The Un-■ derwood Muscle Shoals leasing bill was- sei:t back to conference today, by the senate. - '  I Action came when the senate up-i held the ruling of President Cum-I mins that the senate and house managers had violated the rules by j inserting new legislation in tho | measure. j  i The conferee« must now recon- ' j sider the bill but in that work they i ¡will be without guidance from!
