Caused the Trouble.
The non-partisan element of the "Woman's
Christian Temperance Union, of which the
Pittsburg delegates were prominent mem
bers, met with a crushing defeat yesterday.
Their proposed change in the Constitution
was voted down by a large majority, alter a
very lively debate. The idea of seceding
from the organization was then seriously
broached, but no definite action taken.
rEFECXLX. TELECWL1M TO TUT DtSrATCILS
Philadelphia, October 11. The clos
ing session of the "Woman's Christian Tem
perance Union Convention was a stormy
one. All day long the "partisans" that is
the third party Prohibitionist and "non
partisans" had a bitter ficht, which finally
ended in a triumph for the third-party dele
gates. The morning's session was begun
with the usual devotional exercises, con
ducted by Mrs. C. M. Foster, of Johnstown,
and it was alter 11:30 when Mrs. Swift
called the meeting to order.
After the minutes of the previous meeting
had been read and approved Thursday's
vote for Tice President was announced. It
showed that Mrs. H. C. Campbell, of Alle
gheny had received 113 votes; Mrs. Cynthia
S. Holcomb, of Bucks, 110, and Mrs.
Palmer, of Monroe, 39. Mrs. Campbell
withdrew and moved the election of Mrs.
Eolcomb by acclamation, but she was de
clared out of order and a new ballot called
CHAEGES OP CHICAXEKT.
At this point a delegate from Susque
hanna connty declared that three votes had
been cast for Mrs. Chase, but not recorded.
This assertion aroused the ire of Mrs. Camp
bell, chief teller, who remarked that the
count was correct and that she thought the
intimation made by the Susquehanna dele
gate was very unkind. The voting was
finally gotten through with and it was an
nounced that Mrs. Holcomb was the choice
of the convention, having received 246 votes
against 95 for Mrs. "Wheeler.
During the balloting Mrs. S. Clements, of
this city. Superintendent of the Department
of Social Purity, spoke on the necessity of
pure literature for children. At the con
clusion of her address, Mrs. S. L. Ober
holtzer, of Uorristown, offered a resolution,
which was adopted, ordering that 15,000
copies of the law relating to the sale of
cigarettes be printed and distributed
throughout the State. On motion, a pres
ent of 5500 was voted to Mrs. "Watson, the
retiring Secretary, as a testimonial to her
faithful and efficient work.
f THE OENEEAL BUSINESS.
Mrs. P. D. B. Chase, Chairman of the
Committee on Sunday School "Work, read
her report and a motion allowing delegates
who were compelled to leave for home to
vote by proxy was carried. Bev. T. A.
Fernley made a short address, Mrs. E. D.
C. Marr read a paper on railroad work, and
on motion ot Mrs. H. H. Forrest changes in
the constitution were made the order of
business for the afternoon session.
After lunch Miss Frances "Willard made
a short address and a collection was taken
up for the Johnstown Union. A telegram
was received from the treasurer of the
Lebanan County Union stating that her
county had paia for its full delegation and
on motion they were recognized by the con
vention. The consideration of proposed
changes in the constitntion was announced
to be in order and several unimportant altera
tions were agreed upon without awakening
much interest until article 2 was presented
by Mrs. "Watson, of Pittsburg, amended to
read as follows:
THE B02T E OF CONTENTION.
The object of this organization shall be to
interest and unite the women In this State in
non-Bectarian and non-partiEan temperance
work, lor the reformation of the intemperate,
the education of public sentiment in favor of
total abstinence and prohibition of the traffic
in all alcoholic beverages, for the promotion of
social purity, the suppression of vice and crime
and the education of the masses in regard to
the duties and responsibilities of good citizen
ship. No sooner had the article been read than
a scene ot the wildest confusion ensued.
Delegates jumped to their feet, and all
tried to talk at once. Mrs. Dr. French
managed to catch the eye of the presiding
officer first, and excitedly denounced the
amendment as not being germane to the
constitution and altogether out of reason.
Mrs. Swift replied that Mrs. French was
mistaken in her reasoning, and insisted
that the amendment would have to come
be Tore the house in the shape in which it
was presented. Mrs. Shortledge, the non
partisan leader from Chester, appealed to
the delegates to support the amendment,
and said she hoped the great organization
would not be broken up by political con
tention. A TBIFLE TOERID.
She waxed eloquent, but was interrupted
by several of the partisan delegates, who
were cheered to the echo until the scene
assumed the disorderly appearance of a ward
caucus. A dozen ladies were talking at the
same time, and the confusion was only
checked when a loud voice was heard to
move that the article be laid on the table.
The motion was seconded nnrl nut a
perfect babel of sound greeted the call for
the yeas and nays, and a division was called
for. The motion for a call of the roll pre
vailed, and after two hours had been spent
in calling each individual name it was
found that the motion to lay on the table
had been carried, the vote being 254 to 85.
The announcement was received with
cheers from the partisan wing of the conven
tion, while the defeated minority sulked
and declared their intention of bringing the
matter up at the next convention. At the
conclusion of the afternoon session a large
number of the non-partisans held a meeting
for the purpose of discussing the advisabil
ity of seceding from the State organization.
THE SECESSION ADHERENTS.
Among those present were: Mrs. Camp
bell, of Allegheny; Mrs. B. Darlington, of
Chester; Mrs. B. Downing, of Luzerne;
Miss M. B. Sbepard, of Tiotrs; Mrs. E. M.

resolved not to entirely break off connection
with the union, but the tenor of the speeches

"How do the Hoosiers like the adminis

correspondent's question. "The result of
the election at General Harrison's home the

a smile. "It furnishes," he continued, "a
pretty true index, in my opinion, to the

the results to a great extent, but so far as
the two candidates for Mayor were con

over the Republicans.
'State pride cut a considerable figure in

was something to feel proud ot in the

demonstrated itself abundantly. But the

New Tobk, October 11. A man, long
resident of the Isthmus of Panama, and
lately returned to New York, in con

of affairs down there since the
collapse of the great canal company.
"Almost a year has elapsed," he said,
"since the failure of the company and as
yet the enterprise shows little or no signs of
nothing- has been done.
"Indeed, if anything is being done in
Paris toward this end, we are not in the
least aware of it, for even when they send
us news they do it in such a telegraphically
brief and diplomatically indefinite terms
that we are very little the wiser thereby.
"Even the most hopeful who were wont
to say in the early days of the crash that
the company would come out all right, are
now despondent, and nobody believes there
is any reason to expect a happy outcome for
the undertaking. The gradual suspension
of work began in December last.
"When the final blow came and laborers
and all other classes of employes were dis
charged in such numbers that soon the force
was merely sufficient to keep up a show of
doing something, in order that the con
cession might not be forfeited, as would be
the case npon a total suspension of work.

"Many an article has appeared in the

even been thought to be the product of his

wide publicity, having been reprinted
throughout Colombia, other South Ameri
can countries and also in Prance" and other
parts of Europe.
"The concession grants until 1892 for the
opening of the canal,-provided the work has
been delayed by earthquake or such other
causes over which the company could not
have control. Otherwise 1889 is the limit."

Jones refused to yield, and, drawing a
pistol, shot McDevitt in.the side, inflicting
a severe flesh wound. He then fired at Mc

breast, penetrating the lung. The wound is
considered fatal. Jones then fled and made

July, 1885, Mrs. Barr, then a resident of
the State of Iowa, went to Dakota on a visit
to a friend, and while there was informed
that a certain 80 acres adjoining a tract
then recently entered by Michael Barr was
snbject to homestead entry. She according;
ly entered it, purchased a small house and
had it moved on her claim, broke one aore
and made other improvements.
At that time, she says in her testimony,
she had no intention of marrying Mr. Barr,
but later they married, ''when they moved
the houses up close together on the line and
sodded them up all around on the outside,
making one house; they were then papered;
that Mr. Barr put his bed, stove, table, etc.,
in his, and she put a bed, a stove, table, etc.,
in ners; that tnere is no means ot communi

having an outside door; that she acted in
good faith in making the etotry, not know
ing Michael Barr at the time and having no
understanding that it was to be kept in the
Barr family; that she complied with the
homestead law fully."
Mrs. Barr's claim is rejected on the
ground that husband and wile cannot main
tain separate residences at the same time
and in the same house, so that each, by
virtue of said residence, may perfect an
entry under the homestead law. It is said
that there are a number of casesin the
General Land Office similar in all import

It is probable that the suicide entered the
river, which there flows at a fearful speed,
at the foot of the Third Sister Island, and
that her body passed over the Horseshoe
Falls. The woman was undoubtedly from
Buffalo, and family troubles were the cause
of her suicide.

quiet. At 4:30 o'clock Prince Bismarck
arrived and remained in conference with
the Czar until 6 o'clock. The Chancellor,
upon leaving, was escorted to his carriage
by Count Schouvaloff, the Bussian Embas
sador. A dinner in honor of the Czar was given
this evening in the White Hall of the
Schloss, at which 140 covers were laid. The
Czar, dsessed in the Uhlan uniform, sat
between the Emperor and the Empres, fac
ing Prince Bismarck. The Emperor, in
toasting the Czar, said: "I drink to the
welfare of my honored friend and guest, the
Emperor of Bnssia, and to the continuance
of the friendship which has subsisted be
tween our houses for over 100 years, and
which I am resolved to cherish as a legacy
from my ancestors."
A TOAST TO BISMAECK.
The Czar, replying in French, thanked
the Emperor for his friendly sentiments and
drank to his welfare. Turning then to
Prince Bismarck, the Czar raised his glass
and drank to the Chancellor, who stood up,
emptied his glass and bowed deeply. There
was a similar exchange of courtesies be
tween Emperor William and the Bussian

which they inherited from their fathers.
May the visit conduce to the welfare and

Mr. Bradley Martin, of New York, is,in

hopeful young son, Sherman, who has just
taken unto himself a wife. The marriage is
certainly calculated to arouse the wrath of

only virtue is that she is twice young Sher
It is understood that Mr. Bradley Mar
tin is willing to pay a big sum to procure a
separation or a divorce. The former may be
quickly arranged, and with little trouble;
but the latter will not be an easy matter, as
the marriage, if peculiar, is strictly valid,
according to British law, and all Mr. Brad

cure its annullment, should the lady prefer
to lead a prosaic life as Mrs. Sherman

St. Joseph, Mo., October IL For a
week Mr. and Mrs. Bichard Ambrose have
been missing, but their absence attracted no
very particular attention until yes
terday, when Ambrose's half-brother,
by whom the latter was employed,
attempted to-find him that he might repair
his engine. Upon entering the rooms in
the tenement where Ambrose and wife
lived, a hoirible spectacle was presented.
Mrs. Ambrose lay dead on a
straw pallet on the floor and
in the corner of the room lay the husband
in the final stages of the delirium tremens.
The body of the woman was turned over to
the Coroner, and Ambrose was taken to the
hospital. The physicians say he will die.
A week ago last Thursday, Krs. Am
brose informed her neighbors that was the
tenth anniversary of her and her husband's
wedding, and told them that they had ar
ranged to celebrate the event in "grand
style," as she expressed it Ambrose laid in
a stock of "whisky and he and his wife
celebrated the marriage anniversary'. by
drinking, keeping it up whenever'they
awoke from their drunken stnpors for ten
days; during the week succeeding neither of
them ate a mouthful of food.
The neighbors of the unfortunate coupTe
say that Mr. and Mrs. Ambrose were in the
habit of getting drunk for ten days at
a time about every two months.
They would lock themselves in
their 'rooms and admit no one.
During these debauches they never quar
reled and always appeared to be very fond
of one another. The Coroner's jury brought
in a verdict to-day that Mrs. Ambrose died
of alcoholism and starvation:.
Sir Knight Hopkins, of Fittsbnrsr, Submits a
History of the Grand Encampment.
Washington, October 11. At the
meeting of the Grand Encampment to-day,
the Committee on Bitual made its report. The
report was accepted in part, so much, of it
as related to ceremonials being referred back
to the committee with certain amendments,
with instructions to prepare a report to be
submitted at the next triennial conclave.
This leaves the present ceremonial in force
for three years longer.
Sir Knight Hopkins, of Pittsburg, from
the Committee on Correspondence, sub
mitted a history of the Grand Encampment
from 1816 to 1859. This history proves con
clusively that the Grand Encampment was
established in 1816 by commanderiesfrom

that many Knights have paraded wearing

of the State versus Charles Guidey, Bast

Only one or two true bills were returned

If the Capital Stenres the Fair, Great Frtparattas

The Dispatch correspondent at Wash
ington has investigated the claim that the
capital hotels could not accommodate the
crowds which will attend the exposition of
1892. The evidence secured shows that
the reverse is the case, and anything that is
now lacking will be supplied if Washing
ton secures the coveted -distinction.
ISPXCIAX. TU.IGEAJI TO THE DISPATCH. J
Washington, October 11. Much has
been said in a sneering manner in regard to
the inability of Washington to accommo
date the crowd which will attend the ex
position of 1892, as based on reports more or
less exaggerated in regard to the over
crowding of the hotels by the Knights
Templar. Papers whose local interests are
opposed to Washington as the place for the
exposition argue that the scenes attending
the meeting of the conclave show conclu
sively the Absurdity of Washington's
assumption that it can lodge and feed the
vast crowds that come to see that affair.
As Willard'a was probably the mostover
crowded of all the hotels, Chief Clerk Mul
ford, a gentleman of wide experience in
hotel life, was asked his opinion of the ca
pacity of Washington for entertainment.
"Washington," said Mr. Mulford, "can
accommodate without difficulty the largest
crowd tnat will attend tne exposition. Of
course the conclave overcrowded us. That
was expected. It was an afiair of short
duration. It would not pay to go to the
same expense to provide for people
TOE A PEW DATS
as if the house was to be filled for ten
months or a year. Besides, the com
manderies, many- of them, insisted on stay
ing together ana that compelled us to take
more than the hotel could well hold. The
visitors were not distributed over the city as
they would have been had they sought ac
commodations in conples, or by the lamily.
"In the case of the exposition every house
capable of entertaining guests will be pre
pared, which, in the present instance,
changes or additions of furniture for two or
three days would not have paid for the
trouble. Further than this, temporary
hotels to hold any number will doubtless be
built when the time comes. There is not
the least donbt that Washington can enter
tain all comers.
Mr. George W. Leach, a clerk of long ex
perience in Washington, at the Biggs
House, expressed a very similar opinioa.
"Washington," he said, "can entertain
more visitors than any other city of its popu
lation In the world, not only because it is
more accustomed to packing people in
hotels, but because almosf every dwelling is
turned into a boarding house on such occa
sions. I had seven visitors at my house
during the conclave. My next neighbor
had VI, and so it goes. As Washington is
peopled from every part of the country,
nearly everybody has friends or relatives
here, and it is a customary thing to have a
house full of visitors. HnndrjdAoJEthou
sauds who come will be caretiifbf"iH "that
way. I do not lpok, however, ior'
KO OEEAT A BUSH
to the exposition except near ,itai close. It
will last nearly a year, and thla tmi," with
the limits of railroad transportation, will
tend to make the ebb and flow of -the crowd
regular. But no matter what the crowd is,
there is not the least question that everyone
can be comfortably housed."
Similar opinions were expressed by Mr.
Boessle, of the Arlington, Mr. Willard, of
the Ebbitt House, and the proprietors of
other hotels. Secretary Anderson, of the
Board of Promotion of the Exposition, said:
"It is perfectly absurd to talk of Washing
ton as not oeing aoie to entertain tne crowds
which will come to the exposition. The
conclave people all piled into a few hotels,
and no wonder they vera packed close to
gether. They wanted entertainment as
commanderies, and the commanderies wanted
to be as near each other as possible. If
250,000 people were to come every day from
the beginning to the end of the 'exposition,
we could easily be prepared for that number."-
One of the most interesting gentlemen to
converse with on the subject is Mr. Charles
Kinkel, the architect who has prepared
plans for an iron tower 1,500 feet in height,
on a plan wnicn vanes very materially
from that of the Eiffel tower. Mr. Kinkel
said: "Why there is no dtv in this country
or the world so well suited as Washington
for such an afiair, For
PASSING TO AND PEO
we have the finest streets in the world,
broad, smooth, well shaded, with fine lawns
and numerous parks. For lodging and
feeding there will be due additions to the
present capacity. I am already under
engagement to submit plans for vast tem
porary hotels, which will be made comfort
able in all respects, whose erection will be
begun the moment Congress puts the seal of
its approval on Washington as the place for
the Exposition. Not only will hotels be
erected, but theaters and gardens for the
entertainment of any number of visitors.
"You will see Washington transformed
in a night into a new world with doors
open for the welcome of double the popula
tion it now has. Everything now lacking
which can contribute to the comfort and
pleasure of the vast crowds of visitors will
spring up as though by magic. Certainly
there is no doubt on this point, and it would
be a national shame to hold the exposition
elsewhere. At any other place it wonld
simply be a grasping after the money the
crowd would spend. Here it would have
the significance of a national afiair for
cementing the friendship and interests of
all American countries."
