Milwaukee, July 1C.—The sixth inter* national convention of the Baptists' young 1 People's Union of America— the Christian Endearor of that greal and powerful denomination opened here -with delegates and scattering visitors present from every state in thij union, as well as from Canada. Tho event has brought here probably tha largest number of distinguished Bap list divines and representative members of the denomination, male and female, that has ever been brought together iu any one city. Early in the morning four "sur- remlcr" meetings, with prayers for the presence of the Spirit, were held respect ively in the- First, Tabernacle, South Baptist and Second German churches. Promptly at ten o'clock the convention was called to order in the great exposition buildinif. It hop a capacity of 15,- JOHN H. CHAPMAN. 000 and was filled to the doors half nn hour before President John H. Chapman, of Chicago, rapped for order. This •woa speedily secured and devotional exercises, consisting of the reading of a chapter from the Scriptures, prayer atid winging, 'iea by a chorus of 700 voices, were conducted by Rev. E. W. White, of the Tabernacle chiirch. The service.-! concluded, A. TV. Drake, president of tho Milwaukee Jnion, delivered the address of welcome in behalf of the local orgc.n- ization. The preliminaries over. General Secretary Dr. Frank L. Wilkins, of Chicago, presented the annual report of the board of managers. In it he referred to the fact that the total membership of 'the organization exceeded' 100,000, one ajid all young people enthusiastic in the work of the church. He pointed out that the Baptists allowed ' great liberty. Ei'ery church was left to its own discretion as to how its young people should be organized.. There were over 3,500 Christian Endeavor societies in the denomination; but tho fact that the Baptists were largely enlisted in the interdenominational -fellowship of Christian Endeavor did not preclude their having a young people^ denominational society of, their own. He went back to the first organization of the union, in Chicago in 1891, when 3,000 delegates were present, and commented upon the phenomenal growth of the society. The afternoon's session was opened .by a praise service led by L. W. Endlong, of Providence, E. I. This was followed by a symposium of one hour upon "The Society as n Training School for tho Church." Then delegates scattered to the workers 1 conferences. jtirazii. l.nu., July 16.—Frank Shelby, 1 employed in one of the Brazil Block.

He was edu catcrt in the'publlc schools and In Harvard college, where he graduated In 1S77. H then besiin the study of law under his fa ther's direction and took a course of three years In the Boston university law school He was admltt'edfto the Suffolk bur in tin April term of 1SSO.- Mr. Russell wa»;bnly 28 years old,when. In 1SS5, he was elected mayor of his natlvi city, having already served as council man and, alderman. In 1SS8 he was noml nated for governor, but was defeated by Ames. It was In this year that Mr. Rus sell pave evidence of his gifts as a stump speaker. He worked and talked Incessant ly, going about from one piace to another He was renomlnated for governor In 1889 This time hl» competitor was Gov. Brackett. Mr; Rusgeir. at the head of,a vigorous campaign', >reduced the plurality of his .opponent from 29,000 to 6,775. Next year, on Ms third trial, he was elected by a plurality of 9,000. In his Inaugural message he suggested many reforms In state management, but few of them became operative, owing to a hostile legislature and a hostile council. Russell was reelected governor of his state twice. He retired at the end ol his third terra to resume the practice of law. Russell's name was mentioned by-hls admirers In New England as 01* which, would look well at the head of the democratic national ticket. At the Jefferson celebration in Montlcello, early in this year, the ex-governor made a strong declaration In favor of honest money. He was associated .with Senator Hill and ex-Secretary Whitney In the contest ^over the plattform at the i-ecent Chicago' convention, and kept his state In line with New York against repudiation. , .?iN Eleven years ago, hi 1S5I>, while he was mayor of Cambridge, Mr. Russell married ; Miss Margaret Manning, of Cambridge. Mrs. Russell and two sons, aged respectively three and eight years, are still .living. His married life, despite the en, croachments on his time by reason of, pub- flic duty and -'politics, has been evenly happy throughput. The young governor was a model .husband and father, and his anxiety to retire from the field of active politics was du'e largely to his cravings for the quiet -happiness of his domestic life. His home, unpretentious as himself,'was noted as a model of quiet; peaceful domesticity, and his attachment.to the,principles for whose Advocacy he Had so successfully fought was second only to hfs devotion to wlfe\and family, .
