Small Sized Sensation Caused
by Person’s Bill—The Day
In the House.
Special to Thb Tribun..
Atlanta, Nov. 16 —The bill intro
duced la the senate by Mr. Persons, oon
, tains a small sensation, and one in which
there is likely to be a good deal of inter
est manifested. It is that of requiring
k that the state treasurer shall not at any
time have on deposit in any state depos
itory a sum greater than the bond given
by that depository.
It seems that the committee which in
vestigated the treasury, while finding the
monev all right, of course, found that
*275 000 was in Capt. Wes. Mu'phy’s
b-nk at Columbus, and *175,000 in
Speer’s bank at LaGrange. These
banks gave only *50,u00 bond each

MISS PORTER’S SACRIFICE.
A School Building Burned and
Nineteen of Twenty Chil
Nunda, N. Y.. Nov. 10.—The village
schoolhouss at Coopersville, two miles
north of here, was an old frame struct
ure. In it were 19 scholars, in charge
of the village teacher. Miss May Portor.
Besides the scholars there was little Wil
lard Johnson, son of Conrad Johnson.
He was too young to go to school and
his father had left him in Miss Porter’s
care for the day.
Outside the door was an ashpile and
; near that a woodshed. Just alter the
noon recess Miss Porter noticed smoke
at the door, and told one of the boys to
see what caused it. The woodshed had
caught fire from the ashpile, and when
the boy opened the door a mass of flames
struck him in the face.
The scholars took one look at the door
and then ran shriking to Miss Porter’s
desk. She ran to the door, but saw es
cape by it was impossible. The only
way to save the children was to drop
Two of the largest boys leaped out of
the window, and to them Miss Porter
began handing out the children. As she
lifted them up one by one the flames
camo nearer, and the room grew black
with smoke, which almost stifled her.
She could easily have abandoned her
pupils and saved her own life, but she
At last all were saved but little Wil
lard Johnson. He did not know wh it
to do. and ran hither and thither chased
by the tongues of fire. Miss Porter
started to catch him, but he ran directly
into the most fiery part of the room,
breathed the flames and dropped.
Miss Porter ran to him, but the fire,
which was already going through the
window from which she had passed 19
children, caught her clothing, and she
fell by the side of the child.
Melvin Chambers climbed upon the
window sill to help his teacher, but was
. driven back. He climbed up again and
saw Miss Porter rise, with the child in
her arms, and take a step forward. A
great whirl of fire swept around her, and
she fell. Then she made one more

Johnson boy in her arms.
The 19 cnildren stood there and saw
the schoolhouse reduced to ashes. The
district is sparsely settled, and it was
some time before aid arrived. When it
did there was nothing left but the smoul
dering ruins. „
In a few hours the bodies of Miss Por
ter and Willard Johnson were found in
a yard of where the window was. Both
were burned beyond recognition, but the
larger held in its twisted and blackened
arms the smaller body.
A Child lltimed to Death.
Atlanta, Nov. 16.—Little Helen, the
5-year-old child of J. H. Poyas, of this
city, was so horribly burned by her
clothing catching fire from the grate
during the temporary absence of her
i mother, that she died, after several
hours of terrible suffering. Mrs. Poyas,
the mother, heard the screams of her
' child and ran to her aid. She was also
badly burned on the hands and arms,
trying to extinguish the flames.
THE WORKERS ADJOURN.
After a Week of Labor They Go Home.
Toronto Next Year.
Atlanta, Nov. 16.—The Christian
Workers have adjourned.
The great meeting which has held
three sessions a day for a week in this
city iJnow closed.
That there has been great good done
nobody will doubt; that the customs and
Burrounding, were different, to the envi
ronments to which many were used, is
equally true, and this fact has led to
some misunderstanding of motives, and
some feeling has been engendered in
1 some quarters. But these are of minor
import, and will soon be forgotten; while
the mingling together of so many people,
from so many sections —all intent upon
the great question of the elevation of the
world to a higher plane of Christianity
—will result in lasting benefit.
As one ot the results of the work of
the convention, the Barclay mission, like
the Jerry McAuley mission in New
York, will now be open every night.
Several of the Christian Workers will
remain in- the city for several days.
I Among this number will be Colonel H.
i H. Hadley, who will conduct a revival
under the auspices of the Young Men’s
Major George A. Hilton, of California,
will also remain in the city for a week to
help the Christian work.
Belore adjournment, the convention
selected Toronto, Canada, as the next
place of meeting; the inayoi and coun
sel of that city having extended a cor
dial invitation for them to meet there
I next year.
I Dr. Torrey, the president of the con
vention, made the closing address on the
I descent of the Holy Spirit.
f His address was an unu»t\ally able
one, ana arter its conclusion urs cuuiou j
tion andjoumed until the evening sessSun.
The last night’s session consisted of an
experience meeting and a praise service,
and when it was concluded the conven
tion adjourned sine die.

of .‘Songs of a Day.”
Anlanta, Nov. 16.—The second edi
tion of Frank Stanton’s book of poems
has just made its appearance and is
meeting with liberal sales at the book
stores. The author’s pithy and charac
teristic preface is as follows:
“The first edition has been exhausted
and is now oaof print, but the demand
for it is so continuous and persistent that
a second edition has been prepared. The
demand has been a source of surprise to
the author. The sougs and verses were
meant only for ‘a day.’ That they may
continue to sing their way to the hearts
of the people is all that could be wished
for by The Author."

GOLD, NOT GLORY,
Was the Inspiration That Brought on the
Recent Cuban Insurrection.
Key West, Fla., Nov. 16.—Evidence
accumulates that the so-called Cuban
revolution was a put up job, instigated
by the Spanish authorities themselves.
The late Gartorous brothers affair was
undoubtedly of official origin, and it
seems that the Cuban chiefs in this case,
as in that, have been misled.
The person who arrived here and
brought the first news undoubtedly mis
represented everything for the purpose
of drawing out Cuban chiefs and learn
ing their strength.
The movement will certainly delay
the real insurrection, which, when it
comes, will mean something. The Span
ish authorities know this, and bogus in
surrection is one of their schemes for
Peace will probably reign now until
the Spanish authorities at Cuba hire a
few men in the interior to make another
demonstration. They will suppress it,
and thus achieve credit at Madrid.
The great feat of crushing these so
called revolutions, insurrections and ex
peditions ol the last few years has added
many a laurel wreath to Spanish com
manders temporarily in charge of Cuban
affairs. Unfortunately, many good men
and patriots have been inveigled into
the outbreak, and when the revolution
was put down they have been garroted
or shot, and the paid originators,of the
scheme let off with a heavy fine that
was always remitted, and a purse, when
the doors were opened to them.
There has been method, however, in
the work of the officials. They have
been kept informed as to the plans of the
patriots here, in New York, Jamaica
and other places, and always just before
the chiefs were ready to strike a blow
that might possibly mean something,
these paid revolutions have been started,
and hence it is that, as in this case, even
the best informed of the honest patriotic
chiefs were misled.
This kind of treason has been the curse
of Cuban patriots, for even the first and
great revolution, fought with unparal
leled bravery, was put down, not with
Spanish prowess, but with gold.
In the uprising <Jf Nov. 4, about 50
Cubans were led by Cardozo, Esquerro
and Quesodo. They were attacked by
the civil guard on the sth and two killed,
while 80 surrendered, including Cardozo.
The rest fled.
