That vessel, though still a part of the squadron, has not yet completed those repairs which brought her to the navy yard five months ago, but it is probable that she will be readv for sea Before the 1st of February. She will join the squadron In the Gulf of Mexico at that time.

Capt. O'Kane, the Boston's commanding officer, was detached yesterday, and Capt. Wlltse.hls successor, who Is now commanding the, Mlunesota, will take command Feb. 2. The Chicago carries to Hampton Roads a draft of sixty seamen and apprentices from the "guardo," to fill the complements of Atlanta and Dolphin.

This draft, which Is a type of of the squadron's entire complement, Is composed of equal numbers of Americans and foreigners, with the Scandinavians largely predominating in the latter class. This selection follows closely the wishes of the Admiral, whose experience with the squadron on its first cruise led to the belief that such classes of seamen were most efficient In the constant, unremitteut, and nnrelaxed discipline of a training squadron.

following: TENTH ANNUAL REPORT OF STATE BOARD OF MISSIONS, FLORIDA i BAPTIST CONVENTION. otiaawaarj nsni 111 ina aiais. 1. By missionar ies commissioned, including the secietarie-, thirty-five persons have been under appointment the whole or a part of the year, and have worked in West, Middle, Northern East, Middle East and Southern East and in central ana estern part 01 tne quarterly reports we have the following iwrcnta of work Weeks of labor 1118, churches supplied 60, mission stations 63, and 11 churches were organized, most of which wen the results of work at the stations occupied. Sermons preached 3212, and 721 addresses or lectures on temperance missions, Sunday schools, and other practical and doctrinal subjects.

As the result In part of this work, 653 persons were Immersed on profession of fulth, 85 were restored to fellowship, and 264 received by letter. To this is to be added the commencement of IS bouses of worship, the completion of 8, and making of TlSlbB, IBS UJSI.TLUU1.1UU Ul IU rc- ligious books, 60,605 pages of tracts, and 866 copies of the Scriptures, organized S4 Sunday schools, 5 Women's Missionary societies and bands, holding 447 children's meetings, and securing 319 renewals to the Florida Baptist Witness. They also report the traveling of 71,219 mites, and the conversion of 86 pupils of Saadav schools. We can say, as we said a year ago "the past has been our most prosperous year," not financially, but in results accomplished or spiritual suc- At Titasville and Arcadia, two county towns, bouse of worship are projected, and at the latter place an effective church has been organized during the past year. At Martanna, another county town, a beautiful house has been built and dedicated, while at Green Core Spring, the capital 01 Clay county, a cnurcfi nas been organized and a house built, thus, we may say, firmly establishing the cause in four county towns.

2. By aiding in building bouses. This csctinues to be an important branch or department of state work. Tour board regret their want of means to do more in this work. Help to the extent of $485.68 has been extended to 16 places by gilt and loan, viz: Chipley, Marianua, Apalachicola, Carabeile, Hopeful, Fer-naudina, Anthony, Olivet, Oxford, Wild-wood.

Lady Lake, Anciote, Titusville, Tart Pierce. Seffner and Rnel. At 13 of these places buildings are being used. Several other points are asking for help. 8.

Helping your ministers to secure an education is the third branch of work Is the state, and one that Is growing on oar hands. Since the last meeting of the convention, Brethren Dilworth and Anthony have entered upon their special work, the latter In Kentucky, the former in Slew York. But the number needing assistance Increases, and encouraged by ns to believe they would be helped, several have entered our own beloved nnlversity at DeLand. Joseph LeKoy, formerly of South Carolina, but more recently of Dade City; George W. Waae, Linden, Sumter county; John H.

Williams, Macon; Frank C. Edwards, of Costal River; Noah Norwood, Plant City; Robert Loveli, Apopka; James C. Harris, Umatilla, seven young men, sre bow In school and all needing, if not expecting some help, and will have to be assisted or leave school perhaps. Of these young men, the cautions and criti cal president of John B. Stetson univer sity says: "All these men are first-rate la character.

They ax imiy np to tne average 01 tneoiogi cai students anywhere, and I really be lieve- they are -above the Brethren, we must enlarge In this de partment of work. The Lord is placing honor upon us, and with it responsibility in this matter, and let ns show ourselves worthy of the one by manfully and Chris tl ally meeting the other. Work Out of the State. 1.

By or through the Home Board of the Southern Baptist Convention. Though oar work in the state Is all virtually the work of the Home Mission Board, we feel that educationally and morally, it is proper that our people aid in that board's work ontstdeour state, especial lj um tffiuu lyaww, vim huku has claims peculiar upon us, and the other Cuban the Lord honored bv 1: a nainz us to start It. The Home Boars Is onr mother, and a good one she has been, and Is, and the. time has come when tne cttiia so long carea lor can helB the mother some, and we have made some advancement the past year, giving 1445 to this work. 2.

Through the Foreign Mission Board of the Southern Baptist Conven tion. Hoping to realize an increase ta receipts, the beard ventured to Increase the number of appointments and Incur more responsibility in state work, and, falling in our expectations in regard to receipts, we nave not sent quite as mucn to the Foreign Board as last year. Considerably more has been sent thatr was designated, and we may be able to re-oort as much to the Southern Baptist Convention in Msv as last year. Your board has not, we thinkjbeen at fault In using bo more money in this branch of the work, with the receipts as short as they have been, or rather not being ln- lne committee on nominations reported Rev. J.

The Cleveland Minstrels Next Thursday Night. W. S. Cleveland's consolidated minstrels have been secured for an engagement at the opera house next Thursday evening, January 29th. This Is an organization of great strength and popularity, containing as it does some of the greatest minstrel celebrities.

The young manager, Cleveland, can be justly titled the Napoleon of all minstrel mansgers. He has put together this seasou three companies of such acknowledged merit that his fame has extended broadcast through the land, and Ihe name of Cleveland is now a voucher foi all that is great and good in the minstrel world. His success has-been phenomenal. He is only 28 years of age and hit wealth is estimated at over a hundred thousand dollars, and every penny of it made in three years out of bis minstrel euterpriseH. This is Indeed a bright record for a young man.

"Some call it luck," remarked a well-knowu theatrical man, "but that Is sheer nonsense. Will Cleveland has bad a hard up-hill light of it from the start and has bad more reverses than any young man in the profession, but the secret of his success bas been his plucky-perseverance in the face of overwhelming odds, combined with toil and hard work with good judgment and sound business principles thrown in." The company that it plays here is claimed to be he largest and most expensive minstrel company ever seen in this part of ihe country.

Pins Barren, la. statement or prophecy we mane to the convention a year ago, to-wtt ''but the work of raising it (the endowment) pro gresses, and at farthest will be con summated during tre coming conventional year," we regard as now a reality, to even a fuller extent than we then hoped.

Brother Bailey has raised In cash and bonds during the year $1578.19, Including amount given at last convention, and it has been given cheerfully and by all denominations and all classes of your people. Poor people have jdven liberally; ministers have given as mnch as and more than tbey have received for a year's salary; men bave gives bonds who could barely write; one brother made his maik. Your board has been profoundly impressed with the readiness and liberality of our people in raising this endowment. It was often grand, touching and inspiring. We do not say to cease our efforts, or that we can do it.

Sometime will elapse ere the money will be paid in fall, and reverses will come, and death will come, and then, what bas not been done ill never be, in most cases, and. In the meantime, Interest must be paid, and until the money 1b all paid in some expense will accrue, though such a work bas seldom cost so little so tai; and, to meet these things, you will be called upon occasionally not pressed, however, nor burdened and this will be well, as it will keep this great Interest before our people, help to advertise and cause livelier interest in It. But brethren, we do feel that the time of fear, anxiety and uncertainty is past. Think not of failure any more, if we ever have. So, that taking into account the work of last year, the last year of the first decade, in its entirety, it has been the grandest and most successful of the ten.

We must try to enlarge our work for 1891; to do less missionary work will be calamitous, art! not to do more in ministerial education will be so, as it will necessitate the cutting short the education of some noble boys by their having to leave school, while it is very important that we do more for the home and foreisru boards. Brethren, we must enlarge. The Cnban work In Key West and Ybor city will require more hip from us this year, or from some source, or work now progressing favorably will bave to be abandoned. Brother King represents that Mrs. Falez is doing successfully the work her daughter performed at one time, and which is quite as necessary now as ever.

But she cannot continue it without help. Brother Godinez, by the aid of the church in Tampa, has commenced work at Ybor City, and the outlook is encouraging; but the Tampa church cannot carry on all the work. We said above to do less missionary work would be calamitous. The demands are Imperative for more; but to do so we must have mear.s. We take pleasure in acknowledins? the reception of $14.50 cents worth of bibles, for sale and donation, from the American Baptist Publication Society, and con tributions from Arizona, Massachusetts, Tennessee, Georgia, Kentucky, Ohio, cw Jersey and Pennsylvania, the last named being $100 for church building given by Brother John B.

Stetson, In Memoriam. This is the first time in the decade of this board now closed that we have had the sad duty to perforin herein loo is another evidence of Divine favor of noting the death of members of the board or of Its employes. Since we re ported to you last Judge J. II. Gos, of Gainesville, and Rev.

J. T. Lynch, two beloved brethren, and active, interested members of the board, have passed awav, and Dr. Henry Talbird, who was at the time of his death in our employment, and Dr. G.

P. Guild, who buc recently had been, also heard the call "from labor to refreshment," from toil to rest, and bave heard, no doubt, "well done" from Him whose service they loved, and upon whom they depended for life and salva tion. They were remarkable men men whose like will not soou be seen again. Further notice will be taken of these brethren by the committee on deceased ministers. After the reading of the report it was discussed by Dr.

Forbes, Messrs. I hau- dion, Hall, Bailey, Porter, Farraelee and Provence. On motion the report was unanimously adopted. In response to a call from the secre- tary, pledges were made to the board for the ensuing year to the amount of nearly $2000. Dr.

W. P. Harvey, of Louisville, was Invited to present the claims of the Baptist Book Concern at 3 p. m. lr.

X. A. Bailey offered a resolution that steps be taken to secure the passage of an act by the Florida legislature iu-ccrporating the convention, which was unanimously adopted. The reports of the committee on edu cation and the trustees. of John B.

It is an 01 en secret that there has been some friction among the promoters of the dummy line. Tbey met in this ty in the early part of this week to settle their differences, Col.

W. D. Chipley having been requested by the subscribers in Baltimore who are to furnish the money to meet these promoters and see if matters could not be arranged. It will be a matter of general interest to the public to know that an agreement was reached ana signed and sent to Baltimore. Yesterday the following dis patch was received from the subscribers atBaltlmere: "Baltimore, Jan.

22d, 1891. D. Chipley, Pensacola, Fla. "Will assnrc you of completion of dumniv line." This shows that the settlement bas been satisfactory and that no. further delay will be experienced in carrying but the work.

Galveston Throws Up the Sponge. The statement below from the correspondence of an exchange, shows that Galveston gives up the fight for the naval dry dock. New Orleans might learn a lesson from Galveston's candid mayor. A free confession is good for the soul. At the meeting held to confer with the commission, Mayor Fulton remarked that If such were the conditions he was afraid Galveston was barred out, as she did not have more than 15 feet of water on tie bar aud he knew of no point after crossing the bar that had.

26 feet of witer. After the meeting the commissioners were taken in carriages and driven over the city. Iu the afternoon they boarded the revenue cutter Dix and were given a view of the bay and harbor improvement. To-night they held another meeting, and Lieutenant Ripley, late assistant engineer on the harbor improvement here, presented the advantages of the city for a navy yard, and Secretary Dana, of the inter-state deep water committee, presented the commercial Importance of Galveston. The commission divide here, a part of it returning to New Orleans to-morrow evening, and some going to Aransas pass in the morning.

The only two points on the gulf coast or contiguous thereto that possess the requisite conditions for the location of dry docks and a navy yard are New Orleans and Pensacola, the latter having docks and a yard.

The Squadron of Evolution Resumes Active Operations. The flagship Chicago left Brooklyn navy yard on the 18th bound for Hampton Roads. Her departure, says the New York Times, swiftly following that of the Yorktown and Dolphin, marks the first step toward active operations in Admiral Walker's revived squadron of evolution. The plans for the cruise are similar to those advocated by the Admiral In former yiar, being designed, to use his own words, "to secure trantng ana constant exercise at sea the first conditions of naval effi ciency." The Chicago bas three months' stores aboard, besides a full supply of ammu nition ior target practice. Her bunkers are filled with 840 tons of coal, this being a sufficient quantity with which to steam 3,500 miles at a ten-knot rate.

The system is made np of ten lamps which hang vertically in pairs from a backstay, thus forming combinations which, being Interpreted, make np the code.

The combinations are "worked" from a keyboard having sixty-two different letters, signals, Ac. The Ardois system is now in use In the French and German Navies. At Hampton Roads the Chicago will find the Atlanta ready for sea service. Since last September that vessel has been undergoing extensive repairs in the nature of new piston rings, four feed pomps, ash-hoisting engines, improved ventilators in engine and fire rooms, end new auxiliary machinery, such as blowers, capstan and steering gear. -The boilers have also been refitted with new dry pipes and furnace fronts, and the old gallery bas been replaced by a new one.

Like the Chicago, she is now almost new again. The Yorktown, which left the navy yard Thursday afternoon, and the Dolphin, which bas been getting a new draft at Newport, will also be on band to sail with the rest. Owing to the absence of Admiral Walker 110 official statement could be obtained yesterday as to the programme of the cruise. An officer, in high standing on board the flagship said to a Times reporter, however, that be was 'sure no definite programme had as yet been prepared by the Admiral. It is known that the squadron willfrendezvous at New Orleans, because the mail for the ships has been ordered forwarded to that point.

Such a mobilization has not been held at New Orleans since 1888, when the flagship Richmond, under Admiral Lure, met there with the Yantic, Galena and other vessels of the North Atlantic squadron. The officers of Admiral Walker's squadron are looking forward to their arrival at New Orleans with eager xpectancy, as they hope to participate in the Mardi-Gras festivities, which take place in the week of their visit. The proposed stop at Key West while on the way to New Orleans is only-speculative. It is said to be part of the origiual programme prepared by the Admiral, but his plans have been altered somewhat by the Washington authorities. After leaving New Orleans the Yorktown and Dolphin will probably go to Galveston, and later rejoin the squad ron at fensacoia tor evolutions, target nring ana landing arms.
