Williams, the evangelist, is booked, for Algona sometime during the coming summer and on that accouftt his grow* ing reputation is of interest, He has just concluded a season at Cedar Falls, and that being a normal school town and presumably of about the same moral and intellectual standard as Algona, the results are a pointer of things to Come. He converted over 700 at Cedar Falls, and concluded his meetings with the confession of a murderer, who arose and told of shooting a companion in Colorado, a story that seems to be verified by the Colorado dis* patches. The Wesley Beporter says that Charley Bronson's father attended the meetings and he reports that it is wonderful how people are moved by the preaching, Williams now goes to Waterloo, and his advent has been heralded by a big newspaper discussion, an Episcopalian and a Baptist clergyman locking horns in the public press over the wisdom of such moral upheavals as he incites, If he phases the Waterloo census his visit will not have been in vain, and should be followed by a second move on Fort Dodge. The report of the murder confession in the dispatches in as follows: Williams closed his meetings Sunday night* with a good sized and able bodied sensation. During the meeting Mor.t Truesdale, a young man about 24 years old, became conscience stricken 1 and made a startling confession. Stepping to the platform of the church he said: "I have been trying to lead a Christian life for several years, but have been conscious all the time that I was a great sinner. I am guilty of murder and am ready to surrender myself to the officers. 1 want to serve the Lord and cannot do it without leaving off this awful burden." He was greatly affected, and the excitement caused by .bis .statement amounted to almost, a stampede, and several in the audience fainted and had to be removed. Avery and Gilbert Bid Not Shoot.

His excuse for declining to shoot the match was that all contestants for the DuPont trophy are restricted to the use of DuPont's powder, only.
