Macon, Ga., Nov. 12.—[Special ]—
The session of the Episcopal diocesan
convention in this city yesterday was
quite an interesting one.
After the religious exercises bad con*
eluded, the roll was called for dele
gates. Twenty-five of the clergy re
sponded and thirty-nine of the laity.
The standing committee, through
Secretary Z. D. Harrison, of Atlanta,
reported the election of Bishop Talbot
and his subsequent declining of the oN
In the afternoon session the election
of a bishop was entered into by both
clergy and laity,
In the meeting of the clergy three
names were presented, via. Dr Nelson,

The vote stood.
Nelson, 13; Gray, 2; Johnston, «:
Williams, 1;J. R. Winchester, ol
Nashville. 1; John Elliott, 1. The
clergy cast twenty five votes, and it re
quired thirteen to elect.
The laity cast twentv-two votes as
follows: Nelson, 13; Gray, 2; John-
ston, 4; Williams, 1. Nelson therefore
received the majority of three with the
In other words, out of a total vote of
forty-five be got twenty-six, and was
thus elected by a majority. The elec
tion was declared at 6:0ft o’clock.
In the convention T. J. Pond, of Mt.
Airy moved to make it unanimous.
R»v C. C Williams objected.
Rov. W.E Epps, of Albany, favored

The opposition developed considera
ble strength and the motionwas with
drawn. The full number of lay dele
gates voting signed the testimonial of
election. Two of the clergy would not
do so. Dr. Williams signed.
Rev. W. C. Hunter, ohairman of the
convention, and a lay member of the
standing committee, yet to be named,
were appointed to notify by wire Mr.
Nelson of bia election and see him in
person. The reason of the opposition
to Mr. Nelson was that so little was
known of him by tbedelegates.

Sarloua Consequences Expected On the
St. Louis Kelt Line.
_St. Louis, Nov. 13.—Tho difficulty
between tbe Belt line and the Brother
hoods of Locomotive Engineers and
Firemen, has culminated in the declara
tion of a st .ike and boycott that is likely
to be far-reaching in its effects. The
causes leading to the action taken
briefly, are as follows: Some tbree
weeks ago the engineers and firemen on
the Belt line became dissatisfied with
the scale of wages paid. Chief Arthur,
of the Brotherhood, was sent for, and
an adjustment made on a uniform scale
of $3.25 per diem for engineers and $1.90
for firemen for eleven hours' work. It
was supposed that fair sailing would be
the order for the winter. But last Sun
day, when seventeen men were dis
charged for refusing to work during
their noon hour without pay, matters
oame to a crisis. Chiefs Arthur and
Sargent, of the Brotherhood of Locomo
tive Engineers and Brotherhood of Lo
comotive Firemen, were telegraphed
for. Mr. Arthur has arrived and at
once met the chief officials of the rail
road company. The interview termin
ated unsatisfactority, and the result is
a strike and boycott.

Editor Banner : In the Banner of
yesterday “The Wanderer” asks him
self the question: “Is marriage a fail
ure? requesting at the same time that
he be excused from answering it. 1
will not answer for him, but push this
question a little further and leave it,
hoping that some worthy Benedict may
put ou the finishing touches.
Long before Mona Caird coined the
phrase: “Is marriage a failure? the
proper relation'of the sexes had been
the subject of study and controversy.
It has seemed, that our modern time,
changing so many other traditions, has
found marriage to be, I will not Bay a
failure, but out of date. Hence a ten
dency in all countries to amend the
marriage laws. France has only a few
years ago admitted divorce in her code,
against a strenuous opposition,it is true,
but the fact is accomplished.
The Roman Cstholio church is now
perhaps, the only power that insists on
the marriage vow to be irrevocable,
‘until death do them part.” By taking
such a stand it is doing its share towards
keeping ill-considered marriages down
to the smallest possible . number.
It Btands - to reason that
a person will not undertake this impor
tant step with a light heart and without
careful self-examination if he knows
that, should he err in his choice and
decision, the mistake is irreparable,
The idea of marriage has for its foun
dation the assumption that it is inviola
ble and mutt be kept ^inviolable. We
may regret many noble souls who,
through no fault of their own,have been
deceived and chafe under an uncongeni
al yoke, hot on general principles it is
well not to make their escape too easy.
An inflexible law, that to all requests
for exemption from tbe marital obliga
tions gives Forlas answer:

This plan is objectionable aside from
moral reasons. The taxpayers will be

The young person’s heart and fancy
would be allowed no development and
with such a wholesale system of educa
tion we would breed into the young
souls selfishness, greed and hardness
Alas we have more than enough of
that already now!
Who should take care of tbe cast-off
wives who have become too old and
ugly to find other suitors? Their sons,
if they did k* ow them, would hardly be
inclined to take such a burden upon
themselves. They were brought up
away from home and under a social
system detrimental alike to paternal
love and filial affection.
Much more may be said, were not the
mere exposition of Jordan’s idea suffi
cient to condemn it. It was only
treated at some le gt;h to show how far
the opponents of matrimony have al
ready gone and how this important
institution is amongst the many others
that the spirit of innovation is trying,
first to undermine, then to shake, and
finally t > overtopple.
For I hope to find time to give Yea-
sons for tbe opinion that, on the whole,
marriage these thousands of years has
been a success and a failure. Where it
is the latter, tbe system is not so much
at fault as the individual.
Human imperfection stands in the
way of the best results intended by the
framers of love, ficiid institutions and
we cannot too often be reminded that
for most of our trouble and sorrow we
need seek the cause no farther than in

Belt line handles nearly all the freight

affect the trade of this city. Then, too,
if the men on the other roads refused to
haul cars consigned to or from the Wig

will, the roads are very apt to attempt
to fjroe them, and if they do, a strike
on the big eastern roads would be the
result. It can be seen, therefore, that a
strike on the Belt road may precipitate
a general railroad strike of alarming
magnitude, which will seriously affect
the trade all over the United States.
The strike will probably be inaugu

Abont thirty took part in the game I
saw, though the uumber could have
been extended indefinitely. Fifty titles
had been selected by the hostess,
their representations carefully prepared.
Each player having been provided with
a paper on which there were fifty blanks
for these titles, at a signal we entered
the room where the objects and pictures
were displayed. Bat it was no easy task
to solve all the puzzles before us. Some
titles were kuown at once, others re
mained unguessed to the end.
Among the objects and titles were
such as these:
A candle on a map of Asia represented
“The Light of Asia."
A large white cardboard with a tiny

A picture of a milldam and a white
bead on the top of the picture was

The possibilities of this game are seen
at a glance. With brightness and in-
genuity many very puzzling and amusing
effects can he worked up.
There are two good rules to be en
forced. The time for guessing should ho
limited, and communication while guess
ing strictly forbidden, else the first prize
is likely to go to some one who has been
assisted by the guesses of others, and the
conscientious player has no chance.
Other adaptations of this game might
be to titles of poems, quotations, etc.
But the best seems to be in titles of
standard or reasonably well known, not
obscure, books.—Christian Union.

Washington than those between the

ately no lives were lost there was much
damage to property. The cloudburst

Weston and Tacoma numerous bridges
were washed away. The storm extended
even across the range. The telegraph

and a landslide occurred. On the Sound
