Milwaukee, April . Whatever doubt
there may have been a to the Intention
of Brayton Ives to keep faith with th
reorganisation commute of th Northern
Pacific wrr dispelled tod ly when an an
swer was filed to th ult of th Far
mer' Loan and Trust Company, In th
foreclosure proceeding In the I'nlted
State court by Ive. admitting all of th
allegatlona of th compallnant.
The filing of the answer and Its nature,
however, doe not portny the defeat ot
Ive, but mean a victory, the terms ot
which no on will tail. It develops that
th commissioners were obliged to make
terms with Ive and that magnate took
every precaution to are thst they were
carried out. To thla md two anawers
were drawn, each of an entirely different
nature, and both were ready for filing
In court t a moment' notice, and neith
er to be filed until permission was given.
From the nature of the anawer filed this
morning there I no doubt that the term
were complied with.
The aecond answer. It I understood,
contained a refutation of all the allega
tions which are now admitted, arpple
mentrd with some charges that might
make racy reading and wrr exceeding
ly sensational. All of th parties that
have come Into court are now on record
a agreeing to the re-organization, by ac
cepting the decree of foreclosure asked
for. But It Is learned the an effort
centered In Philadelphia, tn the Interest
of stockholders, ha assumed such pro
portions as to moke further consessloos

Lecture of Professor Lee, of the Albany
The pulpit of the First Presbyterian
church was occupied Sunday morning by
President Wallace H. Lee. of Albany Col
lege, who spoke on the subject of Chris
tian Higher Education. Throughout his
entire dli.-ourer. he emphasised the word
"Christian." Time was when there ma
no other. The church founded college
from the beginning of our history as a
country. But materialism nd infidelity
have compelled the church to defend the
need of education carried on under Chris
tian ausplc?. The Christian college
is historical as the oldest Institution of
higher learning In this country. The
early fathers founded and fostered It.
Our nation owes Its vigor and integrity
today to the superb constitution given It
by our godly forefather. The I'resby
terlan church has taken a prominent
place In the educational movement ot
our country' history.
Education, not Chris Ian. I a misnomer.
An education that looks to the training
of mind alone, 1 no true education. It
I an awful and solemn truth that high
Intellectual attainments and moral de
pravity are not In conflict. The true ed
ucation seeks to train body, mind and
soul ln their due relation.
But further, the church should foster
Christian education for the sake ot self
presrrvatlon. To support this point,
three prominent authorities were quoted,
who all argued In the general thought
that the church which educates the
young people of the new West will con
tml the future of that region.
The most urgent reason for believing
In Christian education Is that the Scrip
tures support and teach It. The presi
dent bore down strongly on this point,
after which he presented the tlalms of
Albany College on the attention of the
members, both for material and moral
Of Men Will Become Idle hy the Glass
Factories Suspending Operation.
Indianapolis, April JO. Tnc window
glass manufacturers of th- Pittsburg
and Western Associations hell a secret
conference here today, and adjourned
until tomorrow, leaving much unfinished
business. It was decided to close denvn
all the plants on the 2th of May. the
sumo to remain closed Indefinitely, most
likely until the 1st of October.
Mart Wilson, president of the Exchange
bank of Pittsburg, w.ts chairman of the
meeting, and, altogether. 33 manufac
turers and general managers took part
In the conference. The members are
extremely reticent, but they claim that
the shut-down Is due to an overproduc
tion and a dull market. While the con
ference was practically n unit on the
question of closing down Indefinitely,
there was much dissension over a propo
sition to advance prices, nnd this ques
tion is the main one to be considered
In the final session tomorrow.
Some ot the smaller manufacturers,
who have only a limited stock on hand,
comparatively speaking, want to make
the most of the opportunity, but those
whose warehouses are overstocked are
anxious to unload. The close-down will
fall heavily on the gas belt of Indiana,
where nearly nil of the plants In the
Western Association are located..
It was stated during the conference
that the plate glass plant would continue
run handed as long as the season per
mitted, as all of them were behind In
orders, and unable to supply the market.
Altogether there are 46 window glass
plants In the Western Association, and
W In the Pittsburg district, but the pro
duction of the latter Is the greater of
