Separate company, of Rochester, N. Y.
These two companies drilled in the southern
part of the grounds, too far from the grand
stand to be seen to advantage. Next fol
lowed the Muscatine Rifles, of lowa. They
marched to the front of the grand stand,
saluted the judges and began to drill. They
handled their pieces well, but were a little
weak in the foot movements. They were
liberally applauded. Then followed the
Grand Rapids Guards; Company A. First

Popular demonstrations indicated that
the Vicksburg men and a company of the
First Virginia regiment bad won the great
est favor of the day. The competing com

with their three officers and tw:> guides.
The programme of manoeuvres was deliv

In general terms, they were exercised

without arms), then in the manual at arms,
and lastly in the school of the company.
Thirty niinutes. were allotted to each com

A STORM INTERRUPTS PROCEEDINGS.
- A furious thunder and wind storm came
Up about 4 o'clock and put an end to the
proceedings. The crowds scattered at once.
The roof was blown off a large part of the
grand stand and the canoes, rocks, forts and
light house of the clyorama were tipped
over and scattered. ’The order for dress
parade at 5 o’clock was rescinded.
For purposes of dress parade the com
mands have been organized into provisional
battalions, in which the troops of the re
spective sections of the country are grouped
together, as far as possible. The Kentucky,
Oliio and the District of Columbia men each
form one battalion; Texas, Mississippi,
Louisiana and Missouri form another; the
Governor’s Guard, of North Carolina, aro
with the Michigan and Minnesota men. The
Virginia troops constitute a separate bri

Gen. C. J. Anderson. The total number of
men in-the camp is about 2,800, in seventy
organizations. One-third of the total are

question of the bethel churches and their

GROWTH OF THEOLOGICAL SEMINARIES.
The Committee on Theological Seminaries
submitted a report covering the affaire of
several seminaries, also the institute for
training colored ministers. The number of
students in the latter was tifty-live, and it
was their belief that the money used in
training and educating the colored teachers
was well bestowed. The Columbia .Semi
nary Ims been closed for a year past, but it
lias been decided to reopen it next Septem
ber. This seminary has an endowment of
?280,000 and its future was believed to be
The Committee on Publication reported
that a debt of $85,000 had been paid off or
provided for, and that it now has assets over
the liabilities of $04,000. In view of this
promising fact it was ordered that the col
portage be started in the Presbyteries where
it does not now exist.
The Judicial Committee made a supple
mental report in the case of the Rev. Mr.
Robinson, of North Carolina, lining an ap
peal from the Synod of that State, recom
mending that the case bo tried, and Revs.

report, first, as to its claims that the
majority of the Presbyteries’ overturing as
sembly were in favor of a closer relation.
He said there is not an unanimous senti
ment in any one of the three synods of Mis
souri, Arkansas and Alabama, referred to
by the majority in favor of an organic
union. The presumption was that the si
lence of the majority of the Presbyteries
placed them in opposition to the union.
There is not a demand in any church for
the opening of the question. The church
was not to follow in the wake of any politi
cal or business movement in this country.
STANDS ON ITS OWN BASIS.
“They ,sav the war is over. Politicians
North and South are fixing up their diffi
culties, but where is the connection? This
is not a war church. This is not a secession
church. IVe hold that any man, no matter
whether he was horn in Maine or in Texas,
can be taken inti thf full fellowship of our
church. If we were united with the North
ern church every time we met there would
be an argument and a dissension and an
alienation. Cure is not a Southern church,
but a church that differs from the Presby
terian church of the United States in the in
terpretation of our common standards.
Church and State arc not united.
“It is said we fellows are preposterous old
agitators because we will not unite with the
Northern church now that the political
differences are settled. It is said the war is
over. Well, you have read of earthquakes,
which after they have passed have left
fissures in the plains and the granite moun
tains. Fissures in the plains can be
filled up, but they will remain in the
mountains, which represents our principle,
as long as the mountains stand. I
mean no discourtesy to any gentleman, but
almost all those preachers who hvc gone
back ini' l the Northern church were the
most rabid during the war. It took two
men to hold them sometimes when the
Northern church was spoken of. Quiet men
stayed the longest, and only went out when
they had to. They have not gone back.
WE TRIED IT ONCE.
“When the General Assembly met in
Columbus, Miss., in 1874 or 1875, there was
so much talk about reuniting that our com
mittee said to the committee of the North
ern assembly that if they would say that the
political differences that caused the split
were formulated in times of great excite
ment, the committee would recommend a
conlsolidation. The Northern committee
would not say that, and the matter rested.
But you established fraternal relations in
1882! Yes, and the Northern assembly
agreed to such establishment on the under
standing that they receded from no princi
ple. Then two granite pillars were erected
without the arch at the top of the bridge or
at the bottom, representing two churches,
showing where they stood and that they
stood far apart.”
The speaker reviewed various actions of
the Northern assembly toward the uniting
of the churches, and then referring again to
the majority report, he thought the dicta
tion of the basis of union disrespectful to
the Northern assembly, and said: “They
have too much honesty and principle to ac
cept those conditions.” He advised the
abandonment of the position they had heard
of, to the effect that the Northern church
would not accede to the conditions, but hav
ing proposed it the Southern church would
have the advantage in the public mind.
NOT A CHRISTIAN SPIRIT.
“If you love your Northern brethren as
you say you do, don't put them in that
position.” He told of the Roman General,
who after the battle, having been congratu
lated on his victory, said, “One more such
victory, friends, and we are undone.” The
Church of God should not play politician,
and ought not to trick one another. This
church ought to be too grand and Christ
like to resort to any such methods.

Washington, May 24.—Attorney Gen

representatives of the Associated Press con
cerning his supposed candidacy for the va

Garland said he did not want the place and

Mr. Garland then set forth his reasons.
“I do not,” said he “undervalue the place.
It has work and responsibility enough to

“Atthattime I would have readily accept

say so, but I was younger by several years

was a period of twenty years between my
age and that fixed for retiring and my
health was unimpaired. Now that period
is only fifteen years and my
constitution is worn out by the severe at
tack of sickness that came upon me in
March, 1886. Tne duties of the office of
Justice of the United States Supreme Court
are so important and so exacting that I feel
itis due the public service that, as a gene

who enters their performance should have a
fair and reasonable prospect of twenty
years of active, unbroken labor before
reaching the age named by the law for re
WORK THERE IS FOR THE FUTURE.
“For work done in that court lasts for all
years to come, and goes far to mold and
fashion our institutions, make and execute
the laws as we may. I could not even in
dulge the hope of having a period of fifteen
years allowed me for this continuous lmid
work, and I would be untrue to duty to ac
cept such a trust, with this fact staring me
in the face. Besides, some months after the
two appointments referred to were made, I
was elected by the Legislature of Arkansas

fr </a public life and public place at the

Circuit Court asking tho interpretation of
the fourth clause of the interstate com

“We felt more concerned at the evils of this
religious struggle with Prussia, and as we
were unable to remedy them by striving

peded our power, we invoked the co-opera
tion of the German Bishops and the Catholic
Deputies in the Prussiuti Diet, from whose
constancy and concord the church de
rived great fruits and expects still
greater. Thanks to the equitable and pa
cific sentiments of Emperor William and
his counsellors, the Prussian government re
moved more serious inconveniences and then
accepted the various practical conditions of
peace, by which some of r,he former laws
against the church have been repealed and
outers mitigated. Something remains,
but we must rejoice at what we have
obtained, and above all in regard
to the free action of the Pope in the
government of the Church in i'rassia.
We do not despair of y r et
obtaining the host results in other parts of
Germany; God grant that Italy, who is par
ticularly deal - to us, may share the spirit of
peace with which we are animated toward
all nations. The means of obtaining this
concord would be to establish the Pope in
a position where he would he subject to
no power in the enjoyment of a full and real
liberty, which, far from injuring Italy,
would powerfully contribute to her pros

THE MASTER BUILDERS.
AN EDICT AGAINST THE LABOR
The Workingmen Must Be In Subjec
tion-Unions Not Tolerated—Master
Builders Must Combine and Resist
the Encroachment:i of the Carpenters
—Recommends Stoppage of all Build
Chicago, May 24.—The members of the
Executive Board of the Nutional Associa
tion of Builders loft for their homes this
evening, after issuing an address long enough
to fill two columns of a newspaper. The
document is directed to the Builder*’ mid
Traders’ Exchange of Chicago, to all affil
iated bodies of the National Association of
Builders, and to the general public.
An entirely new method of dealing with
workingmen is evolved in the case of whole
sale lockouts. It is advocated at the outset of
the address a complete cessation of work
in all building trades of Chicago
as an answer to the bricklayers’ demand for
the Saturday pay-day and is fully indorsed by
the board. The question of a Sat unlay pay
day is stated to lie inconsequential in itself
and easily settled, luid it not been preceded
by a long series of usurpation by the trades
unions. After commending to contractors
in other cities, the course pursued
by the Chicago Builders’ Board, it
proceeds to enumerate the "encroachments”
that must be reconquered by the employers
at all hazards. First is the concession by
which unions are able to prevent working
men not members of unions from obtaining
work. This, the board declares, is the real
meaning of the rule that union men shall
not work with non-union men, and, says
the board, it amounts to conspiracy against
the rights of the individual. Other “en
croachments” are arbitrary powers
exercised by the walking delegates, restric
tion of number of apprentices and
the requirement that the forinan shall Iks
members of the Workmen’s Union. "Bet
tor, 'teays tho address, “that not another
hriclc lie laid or another nail driven in Chi
cago for a year than that this op|Kirtunity
lie lost to regain these rights for the em
what they recommend.
All branches of the National Builders' As
sociation are then advised to assume the
same attitude as their Chicago brethren, in
the event of an issue being fon-ed upon
them. The address closes liy suggesting that
every builders’ exchange' throughout the
country adopt the following:
“To encourage all workmen who wish to
have an opportunity to free'y work, untram
moled by the improper requirements of in
voluntary associations, and be protected in
their work, it will be wise to create and
establish at once a bureau of record in con
nection with this association, where any
and all workmen may put themselves
on record as assenting to the principles of
individual liberty announced in Chicago,
and by and through which, workmen so as
senting, will lio kept at work and protected
in it in preference to those who deny these

tain timsjgivqn, to develop the honest pur

sociation, thus instiluting for the first time
an organization wherein employer and em
ploye shall be joined, and their interests con
sidered ns common, as they liersonally
should be. We believe this woulfl lie a step
in the right direction ami toward the dawn

BURGLARS AT HOBOKEN.
Rob a Store of SGOO in Notes and
Money, But Are Captured.
Jksup, May 24. —Last night between S>
and 10 o'clock burglars entered the store of
W. A. Martin at Hoboken by forcing a
window, while tho clerk was absent, and
stole a trunk containing money and notes
amounting to SOOO. Mr. Warren, the clerk,
was absent from the store about twenty
minutes and discovered the theft immedi
ately on his return. He at one notified Mr.
Martin, who, arming himself with a shot
gun, boarded the train for Way cross, and
proceeded about six miles in that direction
when he got off and returned on foot.
Aliout one and a half miles from Hoboken
ho met a negro skulking along near the
road whom he induced to stop by covering
him with his gun. In approaching Mr.
Martin the negro fumbled around a little
clump of briars a, long as possible, and on
being charged with the robbery was very
much confused. Proceeding to the house
of Mr. Rawls with his prisoner, Mr. Martin
secured that gentleman's assistance and a
lantern, and returning to the brier patch
found a roll of money containing S6O and a
razor that Mr. Martin recognized as his.
The negro then confessed tiie crime and
carried Mr. Martin to the trunk, which hod
been broken open near by. In it were $126
worth of wood tickets and other papers,
He gave his name as Ed f Vines, and his part
ner in the robbery as Henry Wilson, Isith
of them from Way cross. Securing his pris
oner, Mr. Martin reached Hoboken just
as the special train for Way cross arrived,
by which ho proceeded to Waycross, and
securing tiie assistance of Sheriff Henderson,
started in quest of Wilson. As they ap
proehed Gilbert Williams’ house, Wilson,
who was on the lookout, male u break for
lilierty and the swamp, with the Sheriff and
posse in hot pursuit. After an exciting
chase of two miles and a fusilade of pisiol
shots, Wilson was caught by a negro, Ed
ward Owens. From Wilson sl2l were re
covered. Mr. Martin is yet out s7. ! > or
These negroes are both old offenders and
professional gamblers. Cones recently broke
jail at Live Oak, Fla., and there is a reward
of $2.7 lor him from the oilieials of that
place. But for Mr. Martin’s prompt action
and energy he would most probably never
have recovered his money.
