"The charges against Augustus and

Investigation by private detectives," said
Mr. Iawson. "They chunged figures in
threo or morp instances to gain for them
selves at least $13,000 and they depleted

"In regai d to my Interest in the firm
of W. II. & F. Jordan, Jr.. which I
desire to consider entirely separate from
the property hereinbefore disposed of,
it is my earnest desire to continue the
firm for the benefit of two or three mem

have always taken In the financial stand

ally established In 1778, prompts me
to direct my executors to transfer
within 20 days of my decease to the llrm

direct to be contiibuted as an addition
to the capital which I already had in
vested there, nnd which I direct to be

Wilfred Jordan, one of the plaintiffs,

There Is the possibility, It has been sug
gested, that the appointment of Mr. War
Held means that Mr. Stone will not re
sign, but will continue, nominally, at
least, us rector of the chapel, but that
the great bulk of the work will be taken
from his shoulders by the new assistant.
This arrangement would give him more
time to devote to the Htonemen.
The belief that Mr. Stone is to give all
his time to the Stone Club Is based on
the report that the club Is to be ex
panded on e. large scale, and that It will
be such a great Institution that it will
take all the time Its head can give to it
for the direction of its affairs.
The Itev. Br. Floyd Tomklns. rector of

"The clerical coat and vest should al
ways be worn," said the speaker, "and
when a minister puts on a business suit
of clothes he Is practicing fnlso pretenses
he Is representing himself to be some
thing which he Is not."
"The cleilcal suit is a defense against
violence for the wearer." continued
Bishop Xeely. "It protects him from
listening to vulgar and profane lan
guage und also helps him to be on his
guard. He knows the public! looks to
him as a man of Clod and an .example.
He must not disgrace his uulfoim."
The aged speaker also urged that min
isters maintain dignity and terrain from
singing their sermons at services, and
he said that some of the persons are de

best when of Gothic style, he said, and
the interior should be long and narrow,
with a pulpit only slightly raised above
the floor. Preachers should not have to
talk down so that their throats would be
sore and they would need trips to Europe
for rests after the war, he asserted.
Bishop Neely also spoke against a
union of all denominations, and expressed
his belief that no peison In the room
would ever see It come to pass. He said
that Christ never asked for a union of
denominations. Once, during- his dis

AT PRAYERS FOR HIM
Continued from 1'iigo One
"there may bo more that live alid there
may bo fewer."
At this point tho Inlenlcw was Inter
rupted by a man who desired the Major
to subscribe to n magazine and rccclVc
a ft co copy of a book describing tho war
"I don't want to read about the war,"
the Mayor objected. "I only linva time
enough to attend to business. 1 was a.
peddlar mjuelf, once, though, young fcl
low ami I know what OU are up against.
"I wns thrown out of an oflico nnd down
n (light of sulrs once, when I was pedd
ling shirts. But I got up and clenched
my lists and resolved that I'd make
money and do things.
"Here, how much Is ho sttbscrlplon to
the thing? All right I tako It. Now sit,
how about it, young fellow. I said a
minute ngo: 'The hand that glvcth Is
mare blessed than tho lips that pray.' I
guess that Is straight enough."
GIFT TO GIBLS IN J.klL.
As evidence of the truth of thr quota
tion Mayor Itlddle laid down n letter ho
had Just opened. It was from two gltts
In the Mays Lauding Jail, thanking tho
Maor for bocs of candy received by
them Christmas morning.
"I guess they know tho truth of It,
too." lie remarked.
Most ot tlio piomlnent men and women
of Atlantic City who have Identllled
themselves with the Stough evnngcllsllq
campaign feel that Mnyor William Bld
dle l.s tho chief obstacle to a sweeping
success for the movement.
MAY DENOUNCE IIIDDLH.

that the Mayor must bo converted at
uny cost. Tho dally praer meetings
held In the vuilous Protestant churches
are Intended to accomplish this purpose
befoie the opening ot the revival cam
paign. If possible. If the Mayor Is openly
hostile to the religious services held by
Stougn, it Is expected that the enn
gellst will openly denounce Major

Evangelist Stough named four prominent
citizens as being responsible for "wide
open" conditions there. Each of the men
brought suit for 10,000 damages alleging
slander, three of the enses are still pend
ing and a small award was mado In the
fourth. The case was immediately ap
pealed, TABERNACLE SEATS COuO.
