PITTSBURG MEETING Ex-Baseball Player Now Evangelist Attacks the Seminary Training — Some of His Auditors Leave the Building PITTSBURG June 1 — Rev Hilly Sunday the evar-di'-t delivered an vaddr sa to Hie Pi Kahytenan 'ministers of Pittsburg today His words caused consternation among the preachers some of whom left the First Presby terian church with their dignity stung but most of them remained Rev Sunday who is a former professional base ball player has been conducting a revival at Sharon near here and came to Pittsburg to speak on “Why Some Ministers Fail” The evangelist said many ministers of tho present day were "fudge-eating mollycoddles who were continually springing bull con to tlieir congregations" He asserted that few ministers of today are anything but stiffs salary quacks willing to accept social distinction and that many of them are "qualified for the funny house” Continuing he said: "Some of you ministers are controlled bv the rich and not by the Bible Many of you are grafters pure and simple You 1 know this is true You know this too There arc some of you preaching to- we° wntTYod the seminaries and stand tho profes- j sors on their heads in mud puddles A seminary and its teachings are of no ! more use to preaching than a crane's I logs are to a setting hen "I am not an osteopath: I am a surgeon and my line is to cut out the abscess in tho side of the church” a local matter in wtrch the federal government had no concern The settlement of this controversy in the courts will decide a very interesting and highly important point in interstate commerce law Also in the Penn Fruit company case another important question of law is to be decided It is whether the federal government has jurisdiction over railroad shipments inside a state which shipments have a direct relationship to interstate shipments The Land Cases E A Meserve attorney for Mr Blaisdel and Messrs tklev indicted in connection with Imperial land dealings said: “The government charges these men w-itn conspiracy to defraud it by desert land entries with dummy entrymen at a time when entry by that method cost $150 an acre when railroad scrip could have been applied on the land at a cost of $175 an acre” Rhirlev Ward who will be associated in the defense of Mr Blaisdel said: "I understand they charge conspiracy on the part of the defendants to defraud the government out of desert land by agreement with entrymen that they should after proving up assign their claims to the man at whose instance they made me entries “Assuming that such cases happened which we do not admit we still clainf that it is not a violatiou of the desert land law which makes specific provision we claim that desert lands may be assigned “The eases charged in the indictments happened in 1902 when the Imperial valley was just opened for settlement and if any such eases happened it was due to a desire to get the settlement of the country started” RIVERSIDE June 1— A L Woodill president and manager

candidates for the legislature pledged themselves to send to the United States Senate the choice of the people exDressed by the popular vote today for senator Although figures which have been received up to midnight are too meager to base reliable return upon all indications point to Governor George F Chamberlain the Democratic candidate for United States Senator as being the popular choice He

business were rushed through the Methodist Episcopal general conference at both morning and afternoon sessions with the greatest dispatch There was little discussion of most of the questions In this was a large amount of matter of routine character was disposed of Some of the most important measures however had to run the fire of debate before being acted upon One nf them pertained to heresy trials Charges of heresy which may be laid 1 against professors in the seminaries if they come to the bishops will in the' future be turned over to the annual conference of which the accused is a member if he be a minister and if a layman to the pastor of the church to which lie belongs In the past when charges of this character have been preferred against a teacher the bishops have had to pass upon their validity and afterwards appoint conferences to sit at their trials A report whicli received careful consideration before it finally was adopted was one doing away with the six! months’ probation system Under' tlie new rule persons may be received into the church as soon as they are recommended hy the official board nri by the class leaders and stewards meeting with the approval of

to Put the Aldrich tIle KepubHcan national convention in place of Delegate Cliarles L Field who finds it impossible to leave his business Marvin is president of the Good Government League and an active member of the Lincoln-Roosevelt League The league will have four of the twenty delegates from the state at Chicago — Jacob H Neff delegate at large Marvin and Philip Bancroft from the fourth congressional district and Beach Thompson of the first district Delegate Marvin has received advices from the east indicating that an important effort will be made to force the renomination of Roosevelt and he thinks that the movement is being fos-terpd in considerable measure by enemies in disguise Marvin believes that all supporters of the administration policies must center on Taft or some hostile trick will be played to prevent the nomination of the secretary "To prevent the nomination of Taft on the first ballot seems to be the aim of the opposition and it looks as if an attempt is being made to break into his strength by raising a cry for Roosevelt Much of this clamor for the renomination of the presidont Is not genuine but through it it is hoped that the Taft forces might bo divided and the way opened l'or another candidal e It is therefore important that delegates shall keep to their pledges and not be permitted to yield to the Roosevelt clamor which seema to be growing ’ “There is no more earnest Roosevelt supporter in the country than I am but ho will not accept ronnmination and that settles it I shall be unalterably opposed to any attempt to force the nomination on him or to any suggestion in that direction because of the hostile scheme that is afoot” That the railroad machine of California was concerned about tho pro-Roosevelt sentiment was evidenced by the followin'- plank in the platform prepared under Grove L Johnson’s guiding hand at the late Sacramento convention: “We realize that the large vote at the unofficial primary held May 6 1908 in favor of Roosevelt as a can) didate for president indicates to a large extent the feelings (in which we share) of the people of California toward him “Knowing however as we do from his oft repeated verbal and written declarations that he will not he a candidate for the nomination and that lie could not in honor nor could we in decency ask him to violate those pledges and sincerely desirous to carry out his policies we favor the nomination and instruct our delegates to the national convention to support by all honorable means the candidacy of that eminent jurist and far seeing statesman who more than any other j person stands for tho Roosevelt mea- sures who is the candidate favored by the president the party and the people — William H Taft of Ohio” The parenthetical

of the office of the comptroller of the currency and the statement was authorized that the actual printing of the notes would bo begun within the next ten days The new notes will be identical with the national bank notes now in use except that the legend at the top of the face of the note "secured by bonds of the United States” will be changed to "secured by bonds of the United States or other securities” The comptroller of the currency now has in tlio vaults about $203000000 in old notes belonging to various national banks and these will be used as required until new notes are printed and seasoned ready for issue It is probable that it will require six months to change all of the plates used by the 6810 national banks but it is expected that some of tho new issue will be ready for delivery by July 1st next Several matters connected with the new issue are still under discussion one of the most important being the denomination of the notes but it is thought that the smaller denominations will be issued first as each autumn there is a heavy demand for small notes especially 1 from the west and south As soon as the department is ready to supply the new notes in any quantity required no fur- ther issue of the present notes would bo ( be made the present notes being dels l roved as fast as they reach the treas-I ury for tne redemption and the new notes issued in
