entire morning and the greater part of the
afternoon in an address lor the defense. He

tentive listeners.
EEEPIKG TWO" MISSIONARIES AT WOKE
rsrzcxix. txlxosjlx to Tin dispatch.i
Fbaxkioh, November 28. On Monday
an important convention of Baptists of
"Western Pennsylvania will be held at
Sharon, in Mercer county. The most pro
gressive men of the denomination will be
present Unless all signs fail the gathering
will mark an era of advancement in the
religious history of Pennsylvania this
side the mountains. There is a grievance
at the bottom of it, but it is not a grievance
that means an inter-denominational fight.
The Baptist State institutions all have their
headquarters in Philadelphia, and the de
nominational demands nearest to them have
naturally received the most attention until
the people of the "West have come to feel
that the interests of the denomination here
have been neglected.
In the face of this, Bev. Mr. Hall, the
pastor of the Baptist Church at Sharon,
after building up a strong congregation
where a small one had barely existed, has
crowned the achievement by successfully
establishing a collegiate institute where
nearly 130 students are now receiving in;
Etruction.
OPENED THEIK EYES.
RpMntlv a wealthv member of the de
nomination purchased for $10,000 an old
mansion and 12 acres of ground near
Sharon, and donated it to the Institute as
the basis for an endowment. This has
opened the eyes of the Baptists of North
western Pennsylvania to things they may do
for themselves, and the same lesson is
brought home in the vicinity of Pitts
burg bvthe success of the ML Pleasant in
stitute "under Bev. Xeroy Stevens. These
educational institutions are the result of in
dividual work, and leading Baptists have
arrived at the conclusion that organized de
nominational effort can accomplish things
hitherto hardly dreamed of.
The first business of the convention at
Sharon will be to raise funds to employ at
least two missionaries to work among the.
weak churches and plant new ones where
none exist. There is a great field for such
labors at Kittanning; ior instance, there is
no Baptist Church, but it is known that
tnere are at least 40 Baptist fam
ilies, and one of the first
results of the effort flowing from
the Sharon meeting will be to organize them
as a church. It is also on the programme
to discuss the establishment of a Baptist
family weekly and a publishing house at
Pittsburg, and to strengthen the educational
institutions by providing an endowment for
them.
Hon. Charles Miller, ex-Mayor of this
city, is ready to fnrnish a large share of the
necessary cash. He says he will guarantee
the salaries of the missionaries. Bev. Mr.
Chapman, a wealthy retired clergyman of
the East End, Pittsbure, will also furnish a
large part of the sinews of war for whatever
may be decided on. A
THE MOST 1IBEKAI. OF ALL.
Mr. Miller is unexcelled in this section
for liberalty. He is an oil refiner in the
Standard combination and his income is
estimated to be largely in excess of 550,000
a vear. He is the financial backbone ol the
Eraaklin Baptist church and of
the Third ward chapel. He bears
the expense of a night school,
at which nearly 100 young men are receiv
ing a business "education. There is a debt of
4,000 on Hall Institute, and he has as
..mmed the payment of the interest until the
debt is wiped out. He has guaranteed
the payment of sums this year to
various benevolences in excess or
his annual income, and enters
with ardor into the new plans to promote
denominational Growth. His partner, Mr.
Sibley, is not so much heard of, but is
hardly behind him. When' they first
formed a partnership, in the days when they
were much poorer, they agreed that one
tenth of their income should be devoted to
charity and religion. They give much
more than one-tenth now.
Their one dissipation is their stock farm,
where blooded cattle and horses represent a
large investment. They have horseflesh
closely related to Sunol, who lately broke
the tnree-year-old record, and last week they
had the, to them, the exquisite pleasure of
refusing something in excess of $30,000 for
one of their animals.
A BEAE DEFIES HIS PURSUERS.
Too Animal Terrorizes the Peoplo of a
Terr Iarge Section.
POTTSTO-vra-, .November 28. The wildest
excitement and terror prevail among the
citizens of Lower Potts Grove, Limerick
and adjoining townships in Montgomery
county because of the big black bear that Is
still at large and defies all efforts at capture.
People are afraid to send their children to
school and only when well armed do the
men venture out after night for fear of en
countering the animal. Hunting parties
have chased him over the hills and through
den'se thickets and endeavored to kill him
with rifle shots. Several of the balls took
effect, but they were not in a vital part and
only infuriated the beast, who turned on his
pursuers and forced them to turn back. John
F. Betz, the Philadelphia brewer, offers 550
reward fur hU capture and he has several
men in constant search for him.
It is the absorbing topic of discussion iu
this section and many parties front Potts
town have journeyed to the neighborhood ot
Bruin's haunts to get a glimpse of him.
His hiding place is in the vicinity of Pruss
burg, a wild, rocky region with almost im
penetrable clumps of brush and cedar trees
and several subterranean recesses.
AFEAID OF BEING WHIPPED.
A 5-Year-Old Boy Conceals the Accidental
Drowning of n Playmate.
Sceakton, November 28. "Willie
Hughes, aged S years, who disappeared from
home in Capouse "Works last Friday, was
found floating in the Lackawanna river. A
search for his bodv had been instituted
through the acknowledgment of another lit
tle boy named Littlejohn, who stated they
were playing on a blank in the river near
the boy's home and he accidentally fellin
the swift current cansed by the heavy rains
and was borne away before he could call for
help. The Littlejohn boy said nothing of
the occurrence at the time, and, no trace of
the missing child was found until yester
day. Littlejohn's father was awakened during
the night by the sobs of his child, who was
rolling about in bed and talking in his
sleep, calling, ""Willie, come out," "Don't
fall iu," and other similar expressions. The
father awakened the child, and, after quiet
ing him, asked what was troubling him.
The child then told of the Hughes boy's
drowning, where he fell into the river and
said the reason he had not told was because
he feared a whipping.

K0T THE EIGHT MAN.
An Alibi Proven for a Person Arrested as a
Murderer.
rsrzciAx. telegejji to tux dispatch.!
Bellefojtt e, November 28. The man
who was arrested at Vanderbilt last night
for the murder of Clara Pierce was released
this morning, he having proved a satis
factory alibi. The girl had three bullet
holes through her body, and was lying in
the middle of the road. She was good look
ing, 18 years of age, and the daughter of
David Pierce, of Karthaus. The result of
the inquest shows that she had been as
saulted, probably by a tramp who had been
seen following her a short time before.
His description is 5 feet 6 inches tall,
heavy set, smooth red face, wearing light
gray clothes and a dark derby hat. The
murder was committed just this side of
Kartbaus bridge, in Center county. There
are a lanre number of men hunting him.
and should he be captured just now there
would likely be a lynching, as the excite
ment Is intense.

rSrECUU. TEiEGEAM TO THE DISPATCH. I
"Waykesbueg, November SS. The re
port of several heavy failures within the
last 24 hours has caused quite a stir in busi
ness circles. Ex-Sheriff D. A. Spragg
made an assignment to his brother, Henry
Spragg. This involved Dr. D. "W. Braden
and "W. T. Ganiz, Cashier of the Farmers
and Drovers National Bank. The entering
V .of judgments began at midnight, and the
Prothouotary has been kept busy and is
likely to be lor some time, as it is rumored
that several other prominent business men
are involved.
As yet the true status of affairs is not
known, but the liabilities ol those men
tioned above amount to many thousands of
dollars. Some depositors who had money
in the bank hastily withdrew their money,
hut the directors assured the people that
there was uo cause for alarm, as the bank
could promptly pay every dollar of its de
posits. The persons mentioned have been
engaged largely in the cattle business in the
"West, and reverses in that business are said
to have been the cause of their failure. It
is probably the greatest financial crash
Greene county has ever experienced.

"West Chksteb, November 28. There
is a case now on trial in the Common Pleas
Court ot Chester county which is of interest
to a large portion of the community. It is
the suit brought by Mrs. Catharine Griffith

Baltimore Railroad for damages for the
death of her husband, Conductor Abel Grif
fith. Conductor Griffith was killed on the West
Chester and Philadelphia Bailroad by a
collision at Clifton station during the
terrible blizzard of March, 1888. He was
on the engine that was forcing its way
through the drifted snow when it struck a
train that was fast in the drifts. He was so
badly injured that he died in Philadelphia
the next day. Mrs. Griffith names no

Ringing Noises
In the ears, sometimes a roaring, buzzing
sound, or snipping like the report of a pistol,
are caused by cjtarrb, that exceedingly dis
agreeable and very common disease. Loss of

which it cures by eradicating from the blood
