DISPATCH, "WEDNESDAY, APRIL 24, 1889'
The National Eeform Conference Me
morializes the President
TO MENTION DEITY IS HIS PAPEES.
J A Quarter-Centennial ConTention With
OTer 100 Delegates Present.
WHAT WAS DOSE, BOTH DAI ASD NIGHT
The quarter centennial National Eeform
Convention opened yesterday afternoon in
the Eighth Street Reformed Presbyterian
Church. John Alexander, Esq., of Phila
delphia, presided. The Committees on Reso
lutions and Enrollment were not present, so
the meeting as not really organized. There
' were, however, probably over 100 delegates
present. H. H. George, Secretary of the
Executive Committee, reported the condi
tion of the association as excellent; the
finances were in gooa shape, the membership
constantly increasing and the work expand
ing over -the entire country.
Rev. T. P. Stevenson, D. D., ot Philadel
phia, corresponding secretary, spoke or the
work being accomplished over the country
by establishing district secretaries, which
had been, done within the last year, and by
the issuing of tracts and articles on the sub
ject of various reforms. The speaker said
that the schools of Cincinnati, Chicago, St.
Louis and San Francisco were almost en
tirely under the influence of either sectarian
or atheistic sway. District Secretaries
"Weir, Wills, Weaver and "Wiley reported
the number of sermons, addresses, etc., de
livered in their various localities.
The reports of the various secretaries all
contained evidence that thev were working
hand in hand with the W. C. T. TJ. to
PETITION TO THE rKESIDEJTT.
Eev. L X. Havs, D. D., of Allegheny,
and Eev. D. McAllister, D.D., LL.D.,
presented to the convention the following
paper which they had compiled, and di
rected the meeting's attention thereto:
To Benjamin Harrison, President of tlio United
We. the undersigned petitioners, citizens ot
the United States, would most respectfully
call jour attention to the fact that this is pre
eminently a Christian nation. Its foundations
were laid in laith and prayer, in righteousness
and the fear of God. Tbe Bible and the prin
ciples of the Christian religion have been de
clared by our highest judicial authorities to be
a pait of the common law of the land. The
Christian Sabbath has been secured to von in
connection with your official duties by the Con- J
rtitution, and it lias been naiiowea anu ooserveo.
bj the great majority of our citizens ever since
the landing of tbe Pilgrims at PI3 mouth Rock.
During the Revolutionary War the Conti
nental Congress, in an address to the people,
distinctly recognized the tact that it was only
through tbe merit and mediation of Jesus
Christ that the nation could hope to obtain
pardon and forgivness; and anring the late war
the Senate of the United States, under very
similar circumstances,expressed the same idea,
in almost tbe very same words, in the resolu
tion passed March 2, 1863. requesting the Presi
dent to appoint a day for national prayer and
humiliation, and In this distinct and emphatic
recognition of Jesus Christ as the only source
from w hich help could come in the midst of
our national troubles, fully mnetecn-tvi entieths
ot the people have alwajs most heartily con
curred. In view of these facts, we do most respect
fully but earnestly petition you. as the head
andrepresentative ot this creat Christian na
tion, that, in your State papers, and especially
In 3 our Thanksgiving proclamations, you will
in some suitable way, recognize the Christ of
onr Christianity as the one of whom and from
whom vt e obtain all temporal as well as spiritual
Surely if, in the day of our trouble, we as a
nation were compelled to look to Him, in the
midst of our mercies w e ought not to forget
All this will seem only the more reasonable
when we call to mind tbe tact that we. in com
mon with all Christian nations, fix onr dates
with reference to the year of our Lord, recog
nizing His advent into our world as the greatest
event in human history.
The paper was accepted, as was also the
plan ot Dr. Hays that a large number of
names, as petitioners, be appended, not
only of the Eeform Association, but of all
other persons, and that on some date, early
in the fall, the petition be taken to the
President bv a committee. The paper was
unanimously indorsed by the meeting, and
numerous speeches in praise of it were
made. President Alexander said:
I was on tbe committee appointed bvthe
citizens of Pittsburg and Allegheny to take a
paper similar to .President Lincoln, and well
do I remember how solemnly he listened to
the petition, then took it and said earnestly:
"I w ill try to do my duty to my God, my fellow
men and my country." I am sure President
Harrison will do similarly.
Dr. X, N. Hays made a short speech on
retormers, and said many were reformers
who did not know they were, and instanced
Judge "White as a brave man.
Dr. T. P. Stevenson offered a resolution
of thankfulness for the success of the Re
form Association in the last 25 years. The
resolution was accepted. The meeting was,
adjourned until the evening.
STEADFAST IIT THE FAITH.
The evening session was opened by John
Alexander, Esq., of Philadelphia, the first
President of the association. Mr. Alexan
der's remarks consisted of a brief review of
the struggles of the progenitors of the asso
ciation a quarter of a century ago. He re
ferred to the principles tbey advocated and
their steadfastness ot purpose and beauty ot
character. The result ot their efforts, he
said, is the association of to-day.
The Eev. T. P. Stevenson, of Philadel
phia, Corresponding Secretary of the asso
ciation, followed with a memorial oration.
He reviewed "Twenty-five Years of the
National Eeform Movement." He spoke
of the God ot the scriptures as the God of
the nation, and the scriptures as the
law of the nation, and called it the
main spring of whatever reforms have
been effected in this nation. He
referred to the principles of the Liberal
League, refuting them with the objects or
the "God in the Constitution" party,, and
srivinc a lengthy defense of the Sabbath.
Jthe "White Cross and Law and Order Socie
- ''ties and the "W. C. T. TJ. he classed as kin
, dred with the .National Eeform Association
in the objects which they expect to accom
plish. The Eev. Dr. L IT. Hays, of Allegheny,
came next, in an address on the "Purity
and Stability of the Government in Rela
tion to the Progress of Christianity." He
compared the results between a sway of good
and one of evil and showed the great benefit
to be derived from a course of Christianity.
-He referred to Biblical history to show the
truth of his delineations, mentioning Sodom
and Gomorrah, 2 ineveh, etc
Prolessor Aarou Eittenhouse, D. D.,
Professor of English History and Litera
ture, in Dickinson College, Pennsylvania,
was to have addressed the meeting on
"Popular Objections to National Eeform."
He was not present, however, and the lec
ture was omitted.
The convention adjourned until this
morning at 9 o'clock. It will continue
until Thursday evening.

Pastor Hill RefJTcd to Resign, and on
Attempt Warn Made to Oast Him A
Venerable Clergyman's Flock Can't
"While the reporters were busy Monday
night putting the list of licenses granted
and refused in shape for publication, the
congregation of the Seventh Presby
terian Church, on Heerron avenue, were
holding a lively meeting.
Some ot the members of the church want
the pastor, Eev. E. A. Hill, to resign, be
cause, as they say, he is now too old to con
tinue the work, and they are anxious to se
cure a younger unci more active man. Mr.
Hill doesn't quite see it in that light, and
refuses to accede to their requests. The
meeting was called by those who oppose the
pastor to take a vote of the congregation on
his retention or rejection.
Mr. "Willis Booth, who favors the
preacher, was made President, and, after a
lively discussion, a vote was taken. Mr.
Hill won by a majority of 12 votes. His
opposers, after the meeting adjourned, held
a short conference and decided to submit
the matter to the Presbytery. Their deci
sion is awaited with interest. Another
meeting will be held next Wednesday.
The members of the congregation who
want to get rid of Mr. Hill olaim to be the
moneyed men in the church and its real
supporters. Mr. Hill has grown old, and
his age, they argue, unfits him for the work.
A-number of members have already left the
church, and it is expected a split will be
the result. The majority regret the unfor
tunate state of affairs, since it will result in
Some of the Dnnmark's Pnsscnccrs Go West
Twenty-one car loads of immigrants
reached Pittsburg from the east about 6
o'clock yesterday afternoon. They were
destined to different parts of the "West, and
after changing engines the two trains started
over the Fort "Wayne road.
Among the immigrants were some who
came over in the ill-fated Danmark. They
were all Norwegians and unable to talk
English. Througli Interpieter Pitkin they
told about the same story of the sudden col
lapse of tbe engines and their rescue by the
Missouri, as has already been published.
The majority of them certainly didn't look
any the worse after their thrilling experi
ence. They praised the crews of both the Dan
mark and Missonri. The cheerfulness of
the Danmark sailors kept up the courage of
the passengers during the critical period.
The vessel was rapidly filling with water,
and with the pumps out of repair it was
evident to the passengers that the vessel
could not have lasted much longer.
An old German in broken English man
aged to say: "When the Missouri was
sighted, the shout of joy thjat went up from
everybody on board was terrific. The pro
visions of the Missouri were not sufficient
to keep us well supplied, but by sacrificing
a little we were enabled to live until we got
THE SOUTHERN STATES
Hbto Jnst Catered Upon an Era of Unpre
Mr. Charles A. Ashburner, the geologist,
returned from a trip to Alabama yesterday.
In a conversation with a Dispatch re
porter he said yesterday: "From the ob
servations I made of the Alabama coal
fields I must say that the outlook is much
better and more encouraging down South
than it is in Pennsylvania.
"The reason, I believe, consists in the fact
that the production ot coal in Pennsylvania
is too large for its demand, while in Ala
bama the conditions are just the reverse.
Manufacturing plants ot all kinds are
rapidly increasing, and the general outlook
for prosperity is better in the South to-day
than it has ever been.
Pig Iron Rates Reduced to and From tho
The Youngstown committee have re
duced the pig iron rates to and from the
valley points. The new pig iron rates to
Cleveland and Akron from these places are
60 cents for cinder and 65 cents for pig
The rate on cinder from the valley
points to Pittsburg has been reduced from
65 cents to 60 cents, and pig iron from 80
cents to 65 cents. The rates to Uniontown
and Scottdale will be 1.30 for scrap iron,
blooms, etc, and 1.15 for pig iron and
mnck iron. These rates will go into effect
Conductors Cnlled Down.
Some of the patrons of the Castle Shannon
Incline are complaining ot the discourtesies
shown them by the conductors. In many
instances passengers are said to be held for
20 minutes before they are taken up, and
they say that the conductors often tell them
they had better walk up.

AN AFRICAN ESTHEK.
The Famed Biblical Cnntntn Presented by
a Colored Cast Really Creditable for
nn Amatenr Performance.
!Nym Crinkle, the severe dramatic and
musical critic, could not have found a flaw
in the rendition of the beautiful cantata,
"Esther," by a galaxy of well-trained
African amateur artists in the Avery Mis
sion Church last night. No one liv
ing could murmur a word against
the size of the audience, either,
as the array of fashionables would
have made many a poor theatrical manager
happy at 50 cents a head. Pity it is that a
larger and better equipped hall had not been
available, or the church treasury would
have been favored far more munificently.
The lights were not of the most modern
manufacture, and at one time the darkness
was very noticeable, rendering it quite diffi
cult to see the characters on the stage.
However, their sweet voices rang out the
eoIos and choruses in such a charming man
ner that the audience was fully compensated
by what it heard, yet could not see.
There is a melodious sweetness in the
negro voice, and, as the sounds were waited
from behind the dim footlights a strange,
sweet odor like one has read of in fairytales
also permeated the building, tbe interior of
which was filled with fragrant flowers of
various colors, and making the songs doubly
impressive. The costumes were all very
elaborate and appropriate.
The principal characters in this cantata,
the story of which is well known, as an
adaptation from the Bible of the old story
of King Ashasuerus, arc thebeautiful Queen
Esther, Haman and Mordecai, the Jew, the
latter of whom is to take charge ot the
King's domain in conjunction with proud
Haman. etc, etc.
As the beautiful Queen Esther, Miss
Kate Kelly made a distinct hit, both in her
acting and singing: the only difficulty she
has to overcome is her gestures. Her voice
is clear and strong, and especially did she
gain merited applause in the duet with the
King, "What is it, Queen Esther?" Mr.
Neale Waters, as King, just looked and
acted like one, but his voice was rather
weak at times for a monarch.
Charles Waters, as Hainan, did not stand
so well in the estimation of the audience on
account of his extreme hauteur. This, of
course, is very complimentary to Mr.
Waters. Mrs. Susie Lee took the character
of Zerish, and her voice was of a most pleas
ing softness, and full of harmony.
Mordecai, wtth big store whiskers, was
portrayed by Mr. Marshall Chambers, and
his "make up" was quite catchy, as was his
The song and chorus, "Haste to the Ban
quet Hall," was. figuratively, eaten up by
the audience, who drank up every word
with open mouths and ears. This was
greeted with vociferous applause and an
The other minor parts of the cantata were
well bandied, while th"e chorus of 80 voices,
including the children, was admirable well
trained. Great credit is due to Stage
Manager Harvey Neal. The church will
net a very large sum.
