dropped. This ballot resulted, Will

Will Be Asked to Explain His Busi'
ness Methods While In
the Smoky City.
Harry E. Staples was arrested yes
terday in this city on a charge of
fraud preferred by W. K. Heritage, of
the firm of Jones & Heritage, commis
sion merchants, of Philadelphia.
It appears from tbe statement of JJ.
L. Kline, an employe of Staples, who
was arrested on a similar ouarge sav
eral weeks ago, that Staples has been
aoting in a somewhat peouliar manner
during the post summer. According to
Klines written statement, now in
Chief Sim Dion's hands. Staples engaged
bim to go to Pittsburg and to allow
the use of bis name in a wholesale fruit
andproduoe businsss which he estab
lished tbere ana which he ran
with tbe evident purpose of
taking in all he could end
paying as little as possible. Staples
lived in splendid style in the Smoky
City, and as he never used any of the
revenues of tbe business in paying for
tbe stook and Irom tbe fact tbat Kline
aocideatly opened a letter whlou was
addressed to Staples be (Kline) was led
to believe that he was being made the
eatepaw for a swindling business and
locking up the store be came home.
Tbs full extent of Staples' transac
tions cannot be learned at present, but
it is stated upon good authority that
he has suoceeded in selling and pook
eting the returns on several carloads
of country produce, tropical fruits and
vegetables. The Philadelphia firm

most successful in conquering un
righteousness and asked the offerings
of tbe congregation toward the ex
penses of the movement.
MOODY'S EVENING SERMON.
Mr. Moody said be wonld speak neon
one of Christ's promises wbioh was the
most precious. During bis remarks be
said in part:
Tbere are some promises made to ns all
which are conditional and some which
are unconditional, but this promise Is
purely an unconditional one and for all.
"Come onto me ye tbat are weary and heavy
iuuuu nnu i win give yon rest." vv nere
can we find this "rest' iu the world? I
would not look for it among the million
aires where there is never rest. Neither
would I look for It in the congress, where
in tbe lower honse tbey are always fight
ing to get Into tbe senate and from there
to the white house and there surely is the
last place I wonld look for rest. Rest will
never be found in bouor or fani. I would
go among tbe disciples of Jesus Christ who
bad funnd this rest thirty or forty years
Tbe promise was also true or its untruth
would have been found out during tbe last
1,8 )0 years. The promise was also very
comprehensive ns it was for all, starting
with that gentlemau la the front stmt of
the gallery and including you all right to
tbe choir behind.
I have seen many people who seem to
make a virtue of carrying their troubles
and lugging them around with them wher
ever tbey went. It was like a blast of east
wind in March to meet them. Those peo
ple, when tbey come to the service, fancy
tbey lose their troubles and drop them in
tbe pew, but as soon as the benediction is
prouonnced they grab them np again.
Mr. Moody then went on to disanss
Ihe word yoke and was most bappy in
bis lucid explanations which were
manifestly appreciated by tbe audi
ence. Mr. Moody will prench in the
Elm Parkohurcu at 4 o'clock this af
ternoon and as previously announced
at 8 p. m. will speak npon ''Tbe
Prophet Dini;l." The address will I o
