Presence of New Life In Business Circles
Is Apparent on All Sides Cheerful Re
por tf Dnnn a Co.
New York, April 3. R. O. Dunn &
Co. will say tomorrow In their weekly
review of trade:
The regular quarterly statement of
failures shows 4,031 with, liabilities of
$57,425,135, against 3,802 last year with
liabilities of $47,813,683.
The Improvement expected with
spring weather begins, though In some
branches of business scarcely visible.
As consumers make spring purchases
they must lessen stocks and compel
buying. The stocks taken in advance
of consumers' demands last summer
have been distributed far more slowly
thon was expected, but months of wait
ing have helped to lessen the load which
it is hoped spring buying will clear
away. The backward season has been
a hindrance and the number of hands
unemployed in important Industries,
and the low prices of farm products.
Apprehensions of foreign or financial
difficulties have hindered, but are now
scarcely felt. Gold exports are rum
ored, but at this season are so far nat
ural that they have no such power as
to cause alarm as they had In winter.
.The gigantic steel combination is ex
pected to have a great influence In
sustaining markets and stimulating
commence, ana though such operations
often miss the success they seek, they
rarely fall to kindle speculative buy
In for a time. The sudden advance of
$2 per ton in billets a week ago has
raised bessemer pigs $1 at Pittsburg,
and the demand for structural forms
increases in expectation that prices will
rise. Nail associations have given no
tice of another advance of 15 cents at
the end of this month. Ears has been
greatly demoralized, but some will be
come dearer. But no one foundry Is
lightly lower at Philadelphia, and the
general demand for finished products
does not yet improve, those producing
more man tneir snare paying $2 per ton
to those who Droduce less.
Wheat has slightly advanced, and If
later reports of Injury from extensive
frosts and storms prove correct, will
advance more, though western receipts
continue nearly 60 per cent, 'argot' than
last year. Corn exports ar largo and
receipts also heavy, but pork has de
clined 75 cents per barrel. Speculation
In stocks has not been active, though
railroads average nearly $1 per share
Higher than last week, while sincu
lar transactions in trust stocks have
scarcely gained anything. Railroad
tonnage In March has been a shade
larger than In 1893, but reported earn
ings of railroads are 3.7 per cent. larger
than last year, but 10.4 per cent, small
er than in 1893.

financial condition of the country. He

held of usefulness.

on the work of the Freedman's Aid and
Southern Educational society, followed

Rogers, of Drew Theological seminary.

THE LAY DELEGATES.
The lay delegate conference convened
In the Sunday school room at 2 o'clock
for the purpose of electing two lay del
egates to the general conference. Those
present from Scranton were: A. C.
Myers, Cedar avenue; J. W. Vail. Court
street; W. A. May, Elm Park; H. C.
Illnman. Hampton street; C. A. Sut
ton, Providence, and Jchn P. Acker, T.
W. Masters. Taylor. V. A. May, of
Scranton,. was elected chairman and J.
B. Miller, of Susquehanna, secretary.
The following gentlemen were appoint
ed as a credentials committee: V. b
Clements. J."V. Keller, V. W .Corwln.
After the calling of the roll, Rev. Oeorge
Landon oftered prayer. A resolution
was adopted to the effect thnt one del
egate be elected from Pennsylvania
and one from New York state. Mr.
Corwln presented the following resolu
tion: Resolved. That tho delegates
elected by this body to the general con
ference be Instructed to oppose by hon
orable efforts every attempt to remove
or extend the time limit
The following committee was aiHaittit
ed on resolutions: G. K. Powell, B. E.
James and George S. Wllber. George
K. Powell, of Wilkes-Barre, nominated
George S. Bennett, of that same place,
as the Pennsylvania delegate. The sec
retary cost the ballot as there was no
other candidate. Mr. Bennett was
called for and gave an address. J. F.
Shoemaker nominated A. I. Decker as
one of the New York delegates and Dis
trict Attorney H. C. Perkins nominated
W. J. Welsh, of Blnghamton. The bal
lot resulted In Mr. Decker receiving 85
and Mr. Welsh, to. Mr. Decker's elec
tion was made unanimous and Mr.
Decker was called for and delivered an
address. W..J. Welsh was elected as
reserve for 4he New York Jnrt and
William Connell; of Scranton, for the
Pennsylvania end.; .Both were unani
mously elected. The committee on res
olutions reported a resolution to the
effect that it be declared the sense of
the conference that it is In favor of
the reduction of ministerial representa
tion. WOMAN'S MEETING.
At 2 o'clock a very largely attended
meeting was held under tho auspices of
the Woman's Home Missionary society.
Mrs. W. H. Pearce, of Scranton, pre
sided and seated on the platform with
her were the bishop, Mrs. O. B. Kulp,
of Wilkes-Barre, and Mrs. T. H. Has
klns. of this city. Reports were given
by the treasurer, Mrs. F. H. Hasklns,
and by the corresponding secretary,
Mrs. G. B. Kulp, after which Bishop
Vincent delivered an address. He said:
"There is a ureat necessity that we
should have woman's touch of power
upon every movement. I have no faith
In woman's ballot upon any question,
but I have great faith In woman's power
tn mould character. When looking at
woman in the home and then In the na
tion, I find that her power is great.
Among, the poor and degraded are op
portunities for women to promote ac
tive Christian relation. Among these
poor people nothing is needed more
than home training. These are the
things we most need and these are some
of the things the Woman's Home Mis
sionary society Is doing. As for for
eign missionary work, the people who
come to this land are greatly benefited
before they touch our shores. Mission
ary work Is the most beautiful business
the church has on hand. You cannot
shut up the home missionary work in
the United States; the rays of your ln
lluence must spread until It touches ev
ery land. This work Is founding and
blessing homes In all parts of the world.
The home Is to train the boy In moral
and sociological principles so that he
will go out Into the world and support
prohibition, purity and temperance.
This is what the Woman's Home Mis
sionary society Is doing."
At 4 o'clock a Joint session of the con
ference session was held. BlBhop
Vincent presided and Introduced
as the first speaker Captain W. A.
May, of Scranton. He spoke very
briefly, after which George S. Bennett,
the first lay delegate to the general
conference, was Introduced. He re
ferred to the many conventions to be
held during this year, but the most im
portant gathering will the one at Cleve
land. A. I. Decker, the newly elected
delegate to the general conference, was
next Introduced and spoke quite hu
morously for a few minutes. Hon. W.
J. Welsh, the first reserve delegate, was
Introduced and said that he renjre.
senteVl the fellow who was only partly
"In It," but there are many fields to
plow. The second reserve delegate,
William Connell, also spoke. He was
followed by. some sound advice by the
PROF. ROGERS' LECTURE.
The second of the historical lectures
by Professor R. W. Rogers, of Drew
Theological seminary, and the third In
the course was given this afternoon,
after the Joint conference, before an
audience of about 1,000 persons. These
lectures have :roved to be one of the
most Interesting and Instructive fea
tures for ministers and laymen alike,
and are belns attended by many per
sons outside of the Methodist denom
ination. Mr. Rogers Is showing quite
to the astonishment of many of the
ministers well versed In history, how
the historical accounts In Genesis tally
with those as deciphered from the
tables and monuments discovered in
the ruins of ancient cities. It was
generally known that the Biblical ac
counts were corroborated by the re
mains 'of the ancients, but it Is Indeed
surprising to learn to what a marked
degree they correspond and how fur
ther comparisons are literally "being
dug from the earth."
Mr. Rogers opened yesterday by
speaking of beginnings, how they
kindle a spark which seems to
send a ' ray far out Into the
future and furnish a glimpse of
great and ever-widening fields, yet un
trodden and still to be discovered. He
pictured the beginning of the world, of
the Interest shown by savages In begin
nings, of the beginning of that great re
ligion, Mohammedlsm, of the American
commonwealth, and of the scientific
study of beginnings In modern times.
Mr. Rogers repeated the stories con
cerning the Hood as told by savage peo
ple and by cultivated people. He com
pared tho Genesis story with other
flood stories. In closing he told of
polytheism, monotheism, of the spir
itual truths of the Genesis ac
count of the creation and of the
flood and of the overpowering super
iority over the Assyrian and Babylon
This evening the anniversary exer
cises of the Preachers' Aid society were
held. Rev. Y. C. Smith, D. D., of West
Plttston, Pa., presided while addresses
were given by Thomas H. Dale, of
Scranton, and Rev. J. B. Hamilton, D.
D., of Syracuse. The seating capacity
of the auditorium was not large enough
to accommodate the large number eager
to gain admission. Both addresses were
Interesting and were given close atten
tion, Mr. Dale said. In part:
"Every orsunlzntlqn worthy of being,
must have an object and must also
have a preliminary history leading up
to such organisation. During the four
and forty years that Wyoming con
ference has been organised the ques
tion of support for her veteran mlnlsp
ters has been a subject of more or less
discussion - and legislation. Despite
other overshadowing Interests, despite
lack of thorough organisation, there
were found faithful men and women
among both clergy and laity whose
hearts were stirred over this question
and whose constant agitation for a
larger giving for our veterans resulted
in increasing the average paid each
conference claimant from $2 In 1852
to $128 in 1888. But still better days are
coming. In 1888 at the conference, held
at Oneonta a society was formed called
the Preachers' Aid Society of the Wyo
ming conference. This movement for a
better support of our veteran preachers
has all along received the benefit of
the active support and wise counsel of
Mr. Connell.- And with your permis
sion at this time and in this place I
want to bear this testimony, that al
though In some small matters 1 may
have disagreed with Mr. Connell, yet
always and under all circumstances
I have known him to be one whose
generous giving was broader than
IDEA IS VERY HIGH.
"Indeed and In every truth the denom
inational Ideal of the office and work
of the ministry Is exceedingly high. The
church demands of her ministry the
highest quality of leadership In spirit
ual and Intellectual realms as well as
to stand In the front of battle In all
moral and social reforms. The results
of a faithful preacher's life work are
mot fully harvested until the waves of
time beut at least upon measureless
shores of eternity. It must be remem.
bered that the Methcdist preacher
goes where the church sends him. To
119 men In our conference the church
says. 'Co where you will receive free
support, no, more than $600;' to 73,
'Go where you will receive free sup
pert net to exceed $500;' to 40 men
where not more than $400, and to nearly
20, S3C0. How can these men out of this
pittance educate their children and lay
by a single penny for a 'rainy day?'
In view of the sacrifice she asks these
men to make, what obligations has our
church assumed In regard to their sup
port? From the very beginning Bhe
has solemnly agreed to give them a
"comfortable support." The Impera
tive obligation rests upon the church to
provide for her veterans, as well as
for her active pastors. To sum It all
up this question for our veterans Is
not a question of sentiment, It Is not a
question of sympathy, It Is not a ques
tion of charity, but of simple Justice."
Sunday will be a great day here.
The church-going people will have an
opportunity to hear ministers from all
parts of the conference, and the test
shows that the most able men have
been selected to fill the local pulpits.
In the morning Bishop Vincent will
administer the ordination of deacons
and eiders after which the bishop will
preach. In the evening at the. Centen
ary church the Missionary society will
celebrate Its anniversary, Bishop Vin
cent presiding, and with addresses by
Rev. A. B. Leonard, D. D., correspond
ing secretary of New York city. At
the Tabernacle church the Epworth
league anniversary will be observed
with addresses by Rev. Joseph Berry,
editor of the Epworth Herald; Rev.
O. L. Severson, D. D., will preside.
What promises to be one of the most
largely attended, and perhaps exciting
meetings will be held at the Opera
house where Mr. Hogan will speak.
DEMON OR SAINT?
A Voting Woman In Paris Makes Star
Paris, April 3. The reigning sensa

woman named Henrlette Condon, who
claims to be the direct Intermediary
of the arch angel Gabriel, who has
been specially selected to warn human

fashionables, who can secure letters of
Introduction, and the young woman
will receive only those who have such
letters, are crowding to her rooms for
ten-minute conversations. Her par
ents are eminently respectable, and
her motives appear to be above sus
picion, for she will neither ask nor
accept money or gifts of any kind.
She exercises a powerful Influence
on all who consult her. Women are
particularly Impressed, and extraor
dinary scenes of emotion take place as
the visitors leave. People above sus
picion affirm that she knows their life
secrets, which they have scarcely
breathed to a living soul. Her prophe
cies respecting future trouble in Eu
rope are somewhat vague. She repeats
in much the same words a sort of sing
song version of a coming holocaust that
Is to fall on France and England.
The Journals publish column reports
about her, and controversy rages in
religious circles. The archbishop of
Paris is unable to decide what to do.
Some persons assert she Is possessed of
a demon, others that she Is an earthly
