EAST Ts WEST.
Prospect! of To-Day's Interesting Game la
the Eastern Cities.
To-day the "Western clubs vof the National
League will face their Eastern opponents
for the first time this season. Undoubtedly
tbe resultsjaf the contests will be antici
pated with tbe greatest possible interest
among both Eastern and "Western enthusi
asts of the national game. So far we hare had
so idea as to tbe comparative merits of the
East and West this season, and only face to
face contests will give us any idea of their com
parative 'worth. Certainly to-day's games will
not even give ns sufficient data to arrive at any
conclusions regarding the East and West
-worth holding. One swallow does not make
a summer and one defeat or victory in base
ball does not prove which is the better team.
The Eastern series as a whole. howeTer. will
go a long way toward showing what the West
is compared with the East. Bnt in this con
nection it must not be forgotten that the
Western fellows are tackling their Eastern op
ponents on the latter's own grounds.
A GEEAT ADVANTAGE.
This is a great advantage, and it means that
even after tbe present series is over, absolute
judgment ought to be withheld until the East
erners nave been with cs for a series.
Pittsburg, of course, meets the powerful
Bostons to-day, and there are many things to
be regretted. The most important is tbe poor
condition of tbe Pittsburg pitchers. Had
Conway and Gal Tin been in first-class shape it
would have looked like a certainty for the
home clubto quit at least even with the Bos
tons. So far the Pittsbnrgs have been knock
ing the ball around a little more lively than
have the City of Culture men, and it is a fact
that has been demonstrated already that Clark
son and Radbonrne, two of Boston's leading
pitchers, are no terrors to Pittsburg. If they
turn ont to be so this season It will, indeed, be
a rreat surorise to almost every League city, v
8taley will likely be in the box for Pitts
burg's representatives, but it is difficult to tell
r, who will represent the Bostons. Btaley cer-
m tainly has done remarkably well this season;
L indeed, but for his surprising efforts the clnb
S might have been crowding Washington bard
I lor last place. But good as Harry is, he has
i. -not yet attained that judgment and steady
i' effectiveness that Conway and Galvin possess.
"&, The absence of Galvin and the indisposition of
ft Conway, therefore, prompt the statement that
If Pittsburg is beaten she is not vanquished
t while at her best.
f WHAT WILL THE BABIES DO?
E There is another club whose appearance in
p xho Eastern cities will be watched with exceed-
$ ing interest. That is the Clevelands. The Ba-
i bies are to tackle the Giants: so that their first
I essay will, no doubt, be a very tough one. They
may have Tim Keefe to face to-day. If not
' to-day. thev will certainly face him before tbey
get out of New York, providing the weather is
fine. At any rate if they do not meet Keefe,
they will face some very dangerous pitchers.
However, as a "Baby" Cleveland will take care
of itself, and if it is thumped, it will rebel In a
Terr demonstrative way.
we may expect to see a rattling game, or
three or tour of them, between Chicago and
Philadelphia. It looks as if the Phillies am in
better shape at present than Chicago. The
pitching power of the Phillies is remarkably
strong, while that of Chicago is not compara
tively weak, while the infield of the latter is
' also shaky. However, Anson is always a bard
r man to beat.
i Tbe Koosiers ought to beat the Senators, but
Ik the former are almost as unreliable as the Sen
There is one thing, however, which must be a
gratification to all, viz the increased populari
i tyof the game in tbe East. Judging from the
attendance at the various Eastern clues since
the season opened the financial prospects of
the Western clubs are encouraging. If good
playing all round can be maintained the crowds
are sure to increase.
A WHEELING GEM.
Leasee Clubs After Kennedy, the Promising;
Nate Fell, the Wheellnc poolseller, was in
tbe city yesterday. Of course he is a baseball
enthusiast,' and said some interesting things
about the Wheeling .Club. During a con
versation be said:
"Wheeling has a promising pitcher in Ken
nedy. One or two National League clnbs are
after him, and he is a gem. He was engaged
out of a brickyard and signed for a salary of
$50 per month. I think he will be sold soon.
England, the one-armed Alleghenypitcher. has
alas been slimed fav Wheeling, and he Tiitched
his first game on Saturday. He made a three
bagger and only five hits were made off him.
I think he is a good man. Tbe clnb will pay,
because President Dowell and Treasurer Mc
Laughlin have put up their money freely and
mean to make a team of it."
Henry Chadwick Explains What a Real
Henry Chad wick, the veteran baseball author
ity, writes as follows about a sacrifice hit:
The first question to be considered in dis
cussing the question is, what is a real sacrifice
bit? and the answer is that it is a hit which
obliges the fielder fielding tbe hit ball -to put
tbe runner out at first base, thereby enabling
the runner on first or second to secure a base
on the hit or to score a run if on third base.
Inhere are hits made to the field which result in
putting the striker out on which runners on
bases are forwarded, which are not sacrifice
hits, and should not be recorded as such; and
these include bits to tbe infield, which but for
errors of judgment in thv wing to first, would
have resulted in putting the run er out whom
the hit had forced off, as in the case of a ball
bit to short field when no man is ont, or only
one man, and tbe ball is sent to the first base
man either through lack of judgment or
from the fact that tbe second base
-was not properly covered at th. time.
Also in the case of a lunge bit to short out
field, which, while putting tbe striker oat, al
lowed the runner to steal a base on the catch.
These are not sacrifice hits, but bits no bats
man should be given any form -of credit for.
But when a batsman, when he goes to tbe bat,
finds a runner on a base with no one out, and
one run In the game is likely to decide it, and
he goes in with tbe effort to make a safe hit a
tap to short right field for instance and in
trying for the hit gives a chance for a throw
oat from right short, he has made a creditable
effort in batting done team work, in fact
and merits a record for tbe effort. Also In the"
case of two or three men on the bases, with but
one man out, he-tries to send them all In by a
hard bit ball to the outfield, which gives a fine
outfielder a chance for a splendid catch and
affords no opportunity for a long throwin to
cut off a runner at the home plate, such a hit is
a creditable sacrifice, and deserves record as
team work at thn bat.
"Unfortunately for the advancement of sue-
cessrui piay at tie bat, the majority of batsmen
have got into such a rnt of slugging at the balj
lor three-baggers and home runs without re
gard to the important fact as to whether there
are runners on the bases at tho m th fim
work in batting is handicapped, and only the J
most intelligent class of batsmen can be in
duced to get out of the rut and try to become
scientific batters like such skilled wielders of
the ash as Anson. Ward and others who are
earnest team workers at the bat.
"Though the official rule governing the .rec
ord of sacrifice hits is not to my liking, still I
am glad to see it there, if only as an entering
wedige to a scoring system which will give due
credit to team workers at the bat and take off
tbe premium now offered for record batting.
What docs a batsman see when he looks at a
newspaper score this season? Two-base hits
Jones, 1; Brown, 2. Three-base hits Robin
son. 1; White, V etc Is there any record show
ing how many runners a batsman forwarded by
clean hits, or how many runs he similarly bat
ted in? Not a record. All tbe credit is given
to the slugger, who reaches third base by his hits
three times in a game, and neither forwards a
single runner or bats in a single ran."

only six innings were played by the Athletics

ANOTHER LOCAL FIGHT.
Billy Ryan Settles a Local Pugilist In Five
There was quite a lively, though brief battle
last night not 100 miles from City Hall on the
extreme Q, T. The contestants were Billy
Ryan, of McDonald's station and a local man.
Tbe conditions of tho contest were Queens
berry rules, regulation gloves, to a finish.
The main object of the contest was to "try"
Ryan for a future match. Only about 12 people
were present and they made up a purse suf
ficient to satisfy both loser and winner.
The contestants entered the ring about 10:30
and tbe referee stated the conditions. Time
was called, and the two men went at it hammer
and tongs. The local man, who has been a
principal in many local fights, had a little tbe
best of it at the start. He kept "outside" for a
minute or so and got home one or two good
cracks on Eyan's face and body. Ryan, how
ever, got warmed up, and he rushed in like a
tiger and proved himself to be a demon
"inside." Amid half arm exchanges he caught
the local man on the law, terrifically turning
him over like a stuck chicken. This ended the
After being doctored a little, the local man
came np again and kept out of harm's way.
Ryan, however, pursued him, but the round
was harmless. In the next round Ryan pun
ished the local fellow so bad that he vomited
and wanted to quit. The round was finished,
however, by dodging. In the third round Ryan
was wild to get a crack at bis opponent, but the
latter kept out of the way until near the finish
of the round, when Ryan again banged him on
tbe jaw, knocking him down.
In tbe fifth round Rvan soon settled tbe local
boxer by a blow behind the ear. The blow sent
him to tbe floor like a log and that ended it
Ryan is a native of Altoona, is 21 years old
and weighs 175 pounds. He has been highly
spoken of by Jack Joyce, of Latonia for some
time and promises to be quite a handy and
game man. When last night's contest ended,
be remarked: "I was just getting warmed up a
It is likely that he will be matched against a
pugilist of this county for a big stake.

Cricket Rnles Cbnnoed.
The annual meeting of the M. C. C. was held
yesterday afternoon in the pavilion at Lord's,
the Duke of Buccleuch presiding over a large
gathering. Tbe meeting came to consider the
proposed alterations in tbe laws of cricket,
L To substitute five balls and over for four.

likes, but cannot bowl two overs In succession.
3. On the third day of a match, and In a one
day match at any time the inside may declare
their innings at an end.
Mr. Perkins stated that the views of all the
counties had been obtained on the several
points, and there was an immense preponder
ance of opinion in favor of the changes. Sur
rej, however, and Essex were opposed to all
three: while Notts, though supporting the
other two, were divided on the question of five

120 pound pugilist of Great Britain, arrived in
this city from Liverpool to-day. He comes
prepared to meet all comers In his class for any
part of 1,000 a side. EdHolske is here from
Philadelphia for the purpose of meeting Hook
and bringing him to tbe Quaker City. Mr.
Holske will probably seek a match for Hook
with James F. Larkins, of Jersey City, to occur
tbe last week m June, near this city. Hook
has an excellent ring record, and is accounted
one of the cleverest men ever produced in
England. He traveled with John L. Sullivan
when be made bis two months' tour of Great
Britain, and it was then that Mr. Holske ar
ranged for Hook to come here. An engage
ment with one of the leading clubs in London
as instructor in sparring prevented his coming
sooner. Hook and his financial supporter will
go to Philadelphia Sunday night.

ISrZCIAL TELEGRAM TO THE DISrATCTLJ
New Oeleans, May 12. On Tuesday
last, at a parade of the fire department in
Gretna, a town on the other side of the
Mississippi and immediately opposite New
Orleans, a difficulty arose between the
white firemen and some negroes, in which
two of the whites were stabbed. The ne
groes who did the stabbing: were brought be
fore a negro Justice of the Peace and re
leased on $150 bail.
This release caused intense excitement in
the town, and a bitter feeling between the
whites and blacks, which became intensi
fied from day to day until a race war was
feared. On Friday the feeling was so
panicky that the city of New Orleans
was telegraphed to for assistance, it
being reported that the negroes were rising
with the intention of massacring the whites.
The Chief of Police went oyer with a large
force and found perfect order, but the alarm
This morning, at about 1 o'clock, some
white roughs or hoodlums went to the en
gine bonse of the Good Intent Pire Com
pany (a negro organization), where a quan
tity of arias belonging to a negro mil
itia company were iitored, and setfirotoit,
for the purpose of destroying the arms. At2
o'clock the house was in a, blaze as well as
the Second African Baptist Church, "also
fired by-incendiaries. The alarm was
sounded, and a large crowd, white and col
ored, collected in the street
"When the fire reached the gnns it dis
charged them, and this created the rumor
that the negroes were firing upon the whites.
A large number of white men were armed
with rifles and pistols, and when tho guns
exploded and the negroes started to run they
opened fire upon them as they fled down the
railroad track, wounding four, one of whom
was fatally injured.
The fire communicated from the engine
house to several dwellings, all of which
were destroyed, and the residence of C. E.
Brown, colored member of the Legislature
from the parish. A number, of armed white
men marched around the town and many
shots were fired, bnt no one was in
jured after the first fusilade. The ne
groes seemed completely panic-stricken and
not one was to be seen anywhere on the
streets. This disorder continued until day
light this morning, when peace was re
stored. The Sheriff a.nd town officers say
they can keep tbe peace now, and have sta
tioned bodies of whites at several negro
churches to prevent any injury being done
them. The negroes are still in a state of
panic, and many have, come over to New
Orleans as a safe refuge.
JEALODSY AND SUICIDE.

"Wolf Sellers, a laborer at Oliver & Rob
erts' wire mill on Ninth street, Southside,
shot himself in the head this morning, and
will probably die from the effects of the
wound. Ee is a young, unmarried man,
and jealousy is supposed to have been the
cause of his attempt.
About 12 o'clock hewas at the house of
Mrs. Teresa "Webber, a widow, living at
No. 2323 Harkins alley. Mrs. Webber asked
him why he did sot go any more to see her
daughter, to whom the man had been pay

walked out of tbe house, saying: "Oh! no
more! No morel"
Ee walked across the alley to a vacant
lot used as a dumping ground and pulling
out a revolver placed it to his right temple
and fired. Mrs. Webber looked after him.
but did not think he was going to shoot him
self. She was startled by the report of the
revolver, and rushed across to the man, who
had fallen npon his knees. In one hand he
clutched the revolver, and tried to raise his
hand to his head, as if he intended to fire
another shot. The woman grabbed his arm
and the pistol fell.
Mrs. Webber took hold of Sellers by the
arm, and half carried, half dragged him
across the alley into her house. She dropped
the almost lifeless body on the floor, and
then almost sank beside it from exhaus

her for the nearest physician. Upon the

Admiral Kimberly is striving hard to
settle the trouble in Samoa. Ee has issued
proclamations advising the natives of both
parties to hold a conference and settle their
differences. Ee is meeting with consider
able success in his endeavors. The .ship
wrecked seamen are anxious to return to
tCOFTBIGirm BT THH ASSOCIATSD PBISS, ISS9.:
Apia, Samoa, April 27. Thelittle,town
of Apia has had -the appearance of a camp
ing ground during the last few weeks.
Since the hurricane occurred on March 18,
in which six men-of-war and ten other ves
sels were wrecked or driven ashore, there
has been more people living here than was
ever before known in the history of the
place. Nearly all the survivors of the
three German war ships have gone to Syd
ney, and the 600 American sailors who com
posed the crews of the Trenton and Van
dalia have been waiting for a steamer to
be sent to Apia to take them to San Fran
cisco. The guns of the Trenton and a large
amount of stores from it and the Vandalia
have been saved. An attempt was made to
send the Nipsic home with a temporary
rudder, in tow of the steamer Mawhera, but
it proved futile. Admiral Kimberly is
anxious to get the shipwrecked steamer back
to San Francisco, and is impatiently await
ing some actionliy the Navy Department.
tTip mnst. imnnrtant nolitical event which
has occurred here for some time was the
issuance of a proclamation by Admiral
Kimberly on April 17, advising the
tiiitiirM in nnt an end to the war which thev
have been carrying on among themselves
for months. The proclamation was in the
form of a memorandum, and was as follows:
APIA, SAMOA, April 17, 18S9.
What Samoans need most is police amone
themselves. I have, therefore, prepared a. pa
per that can bo signed by such parties desirous
of obtaining peace and establishing order. Men
who love their country Better than themselves
are patriots. Are there no patriots in Samoa?
I should not like to believe It. This paper I
have written only applies to Samoans
themselves, not to foreigners and
strangers. I have great respect for
a bravo people. The Samoans are
brave but In keeping up this war they are not
wise. If they wish to preserve their country
for their children they must have peace, and
become united, A man's life is but short, but
a nation lives many generations, and the
country given by the great Father of all should
be preserved by the fathers for their children.
No one can deny facts, and this is a fact
because it is true. S. A. Kixbkblt.
Rear Admiral U.S. Navy, Commanding U. S,
Naval force on Pacific station.
A GENEEAL AMNESTY.
The other proclamation was as follows :
To the Bamoan people:
Samoans, your country is more important to
you than to strangers, therefore save it by be
coming one people. It is the only way to save
it for your children. To this end mutual and
etieral amnesty should be accepted by all
earing arms. This amnesty should be hon
ored and kept In good faith by all concerned,
thereby bringing back tbe blessings of
peace, order and -good will and prosperity to
all Samoans. Samoans, become brothers and
friends and bury war in so deep a grave that
it will sleep forever unseen and forgot. To
love your country is a duty; by so doing you
serve God and yourselves. Remember, united
you will stand, divided you must fall. As ye
bow so shall you reap.
S. A. KmBEELT,
Rear Admiral United States Navy,
Commanding United States naval force on
APIA, SAMOA, April 17, 1S89.
When Admiral Kimberly arrived here
March 11 last he commenced to acquaint
himself with the situation with a viewto
establishing peace between the two native
factions. A storm interfered with his ef
forts, but during the last few weeks he be
came convinced the natives desired peace,
and that the present time was most favora
ble for some preliminary action on his part
Accordingly he issued the above proclama
tions, had them translated in Samoan and
distributed all over the island.
The proclamations were nailed upon trees
in every part of Apia, and copies were sent
to the German and British Consuls, to Ma
taafa's camp at Magiagis and to Tamasese's
camp at Snatuanun. Admiral Kimberly
sent Capain N. E, Farquhar, of the Tren
ton, to Suatuanun with instructions to lay
the matter before Tamasese and request him
to distribute circulars among his men.
Captain Farquhar was accompanied by
Captain Mullan, of the Nipsic, and United
States Vice Consul Blacklock. The party
went to Suatuanun in a small boat, and
received every courtesy by Tamasese.
Mattea, Tamaseses' secretary and chief ad
viser, was absent at the time, but a number .
of other chiefs were present.
A number of natives crowded around the
house to learn what American officers had
to say. Captain Farquhar explained his
mission and said the Admiral desired to es
tablish peace between the two native fac
tions and to bring the war to a close. He
also had proclamations read in the presence
of all the natives, and he requested Tamasese
to distribute them among his men. Tama
sese replied that he, too, desired to see the
war close and promised to distribute the cir
culars. Eis secretary was away from the
camp at present, but he would send for him
at once and put his views in writing. He
promised to send a letter to the Admiral in
a few days.
Admiral Kimberly stated to the corre
These proclamations are mere preliminary
steps, but I felt that something must be done
at once to assist tbe natives In establishing
peace. I commenced to make some effort in
that direction a month ago, but after the storm
my attention was entirely taken up with other
matters. I had interviews with the
German and British Consuls on the
subject, but found they could do noth
ing to assist me so I determined to issue
proclamations entirely on my own resonsihility.
At least tbe present conditions are most favor
able. The heroic efforts of Mataafa's men
in saving the Americans' lives and property
during the storm certainly ought to Impress the
Germans favorably and induce them to throw
no obstacle in tbe way of establishing peace.
My hope is that the proclamations will hare
the effect of drawing the two parties
together for the purpose of discus
sing tbe situation and agreeing upon
some plan of closing the war. There is cer
tainly nothing in my notice which either party
can object to. 1 have prepared a paper which
I refer to in one of the notices and which can
be signed by both parties desirous of obtaining
peace: I do not care to make the contents of
this paper public now, as In tbe present state
of affairs It amounts to nothing. It is to be
used only in the event of the natives agreeing
SOME PLAN OF ACTION.
My desire Is to assist the Berlin conference,
which will be in session soon, by bringing
abbut such condition of affairs here that a
government can be formed in Samoa immedi
ately upon the conclusion of the conference.
I have advised Mataaf a to remain perfectly
quiet and nut to do the slightest thing which
would in any way interfere with the plans for
tbe establishing of peace, or which would in
cite the animosity of tbe Germans. Tamasese
has promised to communicate with me, and I
am looking for a letter from him daily. I have
hopes that the difficulty maybe settled without
Admiral Kimberly received a letter from
Tamasese April 22, fa which the latter ex
pressed his views upon tho proposition to
establish peace. Tamasese signed himself
"King of Samoa." Ee declined to make
any overtures for peace at present, though
he said he desired to have the war brought
to a close, and would like to see the same
condition of affairs in Samoa as that
in the latter part of 1887. It was
at that time that the Tamasese Govern
ment was in fall power, Malietoa having
been deposed by the Germans a short time
before. Tamasese also offered in his letter
to the Admiral to forgive Mataafa and all
his men if they would throw down their
arms. He also stated that be would not
consider any proposition for peace until
after the conclusion ot the Berlin confer
ence, which he expected would settle the
difficulty. Tamasese's letter, together with
other correspondence on the same subject,
has been forwarded to the State Department
Admiral Kimberly says that Mataafa and
Tamasese had agreed upon a temporary
truce, and had promised they would do
nothing to alter the present peaceful state bf
affairs until after the Berlin conference had
A PBOHIBITIOK DISTRICT.
The order issued by Consul Blacklock,
shortly after the storm; prohibiting the sale
ot liquor to the American sailors, is still in
force, and the town is still under tho pro
tection of the marine guard and native po
lice. Notwithstanding the precaution
taken, however, sailors have had littte
trouble in obtaining liquor, and on a
number of occasions drunken men,
principally members of the Trenton's
crew, have been very disorderly. They have
entered the natives' houses at night and
threatened the occupants with bodily harm,
and on one or two occasions have attacked
the native women. Mataafa has assisted
the Americans in preserving order by issu
ing proclamations requiring all Samoans to
keep off streets after dark. A-wooden drum
beats at 6 o'clock, which is a signal for all
natives to go to their houses.
Not more than one-third of the bodies of
the victims of the storm have been discov
ered, and it is supposed that a greater num
ber of them were either washed far out at
sea or are fastened in the coral reefs and
sunken in the wreckage.
BUItfED BY HIS SON.
How Millionaire Corwith Was Redncedto
Beggary His Transactions in Lead
Coppered br His Son
The Father Dying.
Chicago, May 13. Strange disclosures
followed to-night when it was announced that
Nathan Corwith, Sr., had been very ill in
this city and that his death might occur at
any minute. Corwith a year ago was the rich
est lead merchant in America, if not in the
world. The approach of death causes in
quiries, which resulting in obtaining the
heretofore nnknown story of his sudden de
scent to poverty, as told by one of his former
associates. The supposition has been that
Corwith's gigantic failure in business was
solely the result of an ill-timed attempt to
corner the lead supply of the world. As
now revealed, the real lesson was almost a
repetition of the plot in the play of ''The
Ex-County Commissioner Donnersberger,
who examined the books of Corwith after
the failure, is the source of thenew informa
tion. The facts as related are, in brief, that
Corwith's every move in speculation was
being "coppered" by his own son. Gurdon
Corwith, and that before the inevita
ble crash came 51,100,000 had been
withdrawn from the old man's
coffers and sunk in operations in which the
younger Corwith had become helplessly in
volved. Young Corwith was at the time a
metal broker in New York, and induced the
father to believe that he had exclusive in
formation regarding plans of the French
copper syndicate as to lead. Corwith.
Sr., was in poor health and allowed
the son unusual leeway. Until the actual
collapse was reached Corwith believed that
he had an enormous amount of lead on hand
and paid for, when the fact was that the
lead purchased had been already sold and
the proceeds utterly wiped out by young
Donnersberger and other close friends of
the elder Corwith were called fbTNew York,
and in the face of opposition from Gurdon
Corwith discovered, after closely analyzing
the books and tracing up consignments, the
real state of affairs. Young Corwith was
placed in confinement by the investigators,
out afterward released and the father shoul
dered the bnrden, making whatever settle
ment was possible. The ailment from which
old Nathan Corwith has been suffering, the
doctors say, is heart trouble.

The novel spectacle of 300 converts being
baptized at one swoop was witnessed in the
James river yesterday. All were colored,
and the event entirely depopulated the col

peculiar exhortations of the frenzied con

the exercises. Bev. "Sun-do-Move" Jasntr

rSFXCIAL TELEOKAH TO THS
Richmond, Va., May 13. To-djfy by 11
o'clock Richmond was almost wfhout an
adult negro inhabitant. The ennre black
population had gone to the banks of the
James river, to witness tbe bjggest baptism
ever known among the colpred churches.
About 300 were put under the- water, and
many more are to follow.
This is the first result of tho unpre
cedented revival going, on here for three
weeks in the darkey churches. The scenes
during the past weekculminated yesterday
and last night in snob wild chantings to the
accompaniment of handshaking as to render
sleep impossible tin many sections of the
city, the red hoVweather seeming to add to
the intensity iff their religions fervor. No
colored person, no matter how irreligious,
dares refusonaking the hand of a just con
verted, though (this necessitates a pump
handle movement until the religionist re
lates theftong story of visions he has seen
leadinraup to his conversion.
So, up into the small hours the loud sing
ing ohexperience went on, the voice of. the
chantir getting a peculiar staccato as it
favored in accordance with the vigor of the
movement of the right hand of brotherhood.
The Dispatch correspondent, standing
under a window at 1 o'clock this morning,
could catch from three different points such
sont lines as this: "I got de ole satyn in

an' i in dls right han' I got de righteous
Sword wha'r I gwine to hole, too; an' ole
satvn may call and ole 'satyn may cry, but I
done wid him."
Then the voice of another brother,, just as
happy and impatient to relate his expe
rience, broke in: "Hoi him down, hoi' him
down; an' de Lamb said to me, I gwine to
sot you free, de chains all off, de shackles
done broke; you done got out of big damna
tion! O om hoo. Thank you, sweet Jesus."
A FEENZIED FEMALE'S CEX.
This relater's song was broken into by the
ringing voice of a female, wrought up to
frenziy as she shrieked: "Thank God, thank
God,my Jesus has come to me. He did.
He said, 'Sister, I want you.' Ee did. 1
said, TTes, sweet Lamb,' I did. He said,
'Don wonder no mo; He -said, 'Deliverer

the head of the National Medical Dispen
sary. Dearborn street, Chicago, whose wife
has joined the band. Dr. Wilkin has de
termined to bring suit for $25,000 against
Schweinfufth for injuring his domestio
peace. In order to naye, if possible, a
stronger hold upon him, the Chicago physi
cian secretly sent out a female detective
about two weeks ago, a bright, attractive
young woman namedMrs. E. C. Claflin.
She went to the Conmunitv and made pre
tence that she desUfed to join and become a
convert to the fith. Her object was es
pecially to discryerSchweinfnrth's relations
with the ban of women surrounding him.
She reportiha"t she found him cold es ice,
and adajDont to all her devices. The
strangflBtpart of the story is that, skeptic
thoncrl she was. she has now become a
genuine convert, perfectly imbued with a
belief in his supernatural attributes, and so

xne representative suceeeaea in. meeting
her and held a most Interesting interview.
She said : "I am fully convinced that
Schweinfurth is Jesus Christ came again to
this earth. He is God. By him the only
true way of salvation is revealed. I came
there a skeptic. I now believe in him. He
is truly without iruile, and I thank Heaven
I was sent out where I could meet him and
learn of him. Ve can be purged of all sin
believing in him."
Sbe gave more information about the life
there than the reporter could learn in his
visit to the community. There are a num
ber of the women who by long residence and
devotion have approached sufficiently near
to the purity of their Christ that they are
called "angels." There were 13 of these
"angels" when she was there. They eat
with Schweinfurth, taking but two meals a
day. The rest of the women whose angelic
wings are still in the pin feather stage, eat
separately at another house, and the men
all have other quarters for their meals.
There is one "angel" who is the most per
fect and called by Schweinfurth his "soul's
mate." Her community name is Angelica.
She is a pale, dark-eyed, lissome creature
of 22 years, not very plump, but willowy
and spiritueile, with a far-away look in
her.eyes. Mrs. Claflin said that her com
plexion was wonderful white as alabaster.
She occupies a special apartment, which is
the most lavishly and richly adorned of
any in the house. Her room is very near
"Christ's," and she is never seen about the
house, and visible to the others only at
meals when she sits at his right hand.
Garden of Eden Test.
There are certain final rites celebrated
which are called "The Garden of Eden"
test. This is known to be a fact, though
it is one of the few things that no one
seemed ready to explain. It is understood,
however, that it is modeled quite closely
aftf r the Mormon endowment house, and it
is rumored that the women who pass
through the ordeal do so in a nude state,
in the presence of the Christ, also nude.
But it is alleged that the participants are so
free from all sin that even thus nnattired
they are purity itself.
There is one thing that is remarked upon
by all who study Schweinfurth. He cer
tainly bears the closest resemblance to the
popular pictures of the Savionr. So near is
the likeness that strangers, in total ignorance
of his identity, have been heard to comment
on it. His eyes, beard and hair are of the
same color. Thecontonrof his face follows
the lines of the paintings of the real Christ
with great accuracy. I have certainly never
seen any , person who could begin to ap
proach this striking resemblance. It is
very likely that Schweinfurth depends upon
this similarity for some ot his most power
ful arguments in making disciples.
Trouble for tbe Churches.
In dozens of places are springing up
church trials of persons who have embraced
the faith. In a Kansas City Presbyterian
church a trial is now pending of a woman
who has become a convert, and depositions
are to be taken here to prove that Schwein
furth cannot cerform miracles, as 'is alleged.
A number of women nave recent! v left a
