oiienlng addreaa and IntnHlnced the orn

grnnd tuoster workman of the Knlghta ot
Mr. Sovereign begna with nn attnrk on
Secretary of the Treaniiry" John (?. Oar
llstle, tho lntter'a ap.'ech to the norklng
men of Chicago aeemlntf to bother the
free silver orntor more than inythlng else.
Mr. Boveregn attributed tho expression
'W-ccnt dollnr" to Mr. Cnrlltle, nnd anld
there wna no attch thing. Thnt a.Htlc It.
"If I begun telling von of n wn.nnSrt

apenker. "Then whv should there t.

whrn the government nuts Ita atamn nn-
on n piece of silver nnd rnys It shnll be
a dollar, n dollnr It l not a Co-cent o.ol

did not tell the wondering people, when
the government put Ita atamu upon a
plec of allvar and guaranteed It should

dollar wua julvalM to 1ta) rents In

Hoverelgn stuted that Kfliind nnd Ih

n- In form of aoverninont If this
country wra lo hava tha m policy aa

the I 'nlted Rum and I'.riKliuid have both

lKiy surely paid much attention to tha

said further all th tlah.rm.-n must go
on u big strike at the polls In June and
help to break away from th awful yoke
whbh hor Ihem down, lie ralM ihe
fishermen "you boys," and they evident
ly liked It, for mu-h uplauao follow. d.
Then Mr. Sovereign said the volar
should foraaka tlu-old parties, and told
a story In which he likened tha old party
m.-n 10 the principal In th tale.
Me said a Presbyterian My once In
vited another lady of the Methodist frilth
to attend the Presbyterian service. The
Invitation ns readily accepted, and to
gether the two Indlea entered th house
of fJod on the following 8indny. In the
the Mothodlat church, recited the speak
er, the faithful may rmphiislxe a good
point by th pastor with "Amen." or
"Hallelujah!' Tills custom la not prac
ticed In th Presbyterian church. The
Methodist lady became very much In
terested In the sermon, nnd when the
pastor brought a truth out quite forci
bly, showed her Appreciation by an
"amen." Th good Prvshytartana naivd
at her In ajnaaement Uut th old lady
Wiia unconscious of the sharp glance
and again burat out with a fervent
"Hallelujah!" Then the other looked
upon her with hatred, finally th pas
tor, getting warmed up to hi subject,
drew a beautiful moral, and this time
the old lady was delighted beyond meaa
ure. A vigorous "Amen! Hallelujah!
Illesa the MrdT" waa th result, and
then two deacon went over 10 where
the lady waa sitting and carried her
bodily out of tho church.
While they were carrying Iter out the
lady shouted at short Intervals. "Oh. 1
cannot stanl th honor!" Hla-lng her
upon her feet, they asked her what she
meant. ai4 aha replied:
"Our good Ird rode Into Jennalem

Cle eland. May . -Since U7I the board
of education of the Methodist church ha
been loaning Indigent deserving rtudent
money with which to complete their
studies necessary to make them minister
or missionaries. The loan were for long
time and on easy payment. Two days
ago Rev. Charles Hayle, of New York,
corresponding secretary of the board,
presented a report on these loans for
the entire twenty years during which
they hav been given. This report show
ed that tWn.OOO had been presented to
the (tudents, and of that sum only t-V),-
M had been returned.
At a meeting of the conference com
mittee on education today this matter
came up lo the form of a motion for a
ub-conrmlttve to look up the apparently
extraordinary state of affair. General
Jume T. Huallng, of New Jersey, de
clared that the loan ayatem waa evi
dently turning Methodist divinity stu
dent into paupers, and that It Impaired
inrir usefulness and was a bad thing In
all wraya for th students.
Rnr. J. H. Clendonnlng, of Fort Smith,
Ark., said he could circely believe his
ane when the figure were placed be-for-
him. Th effect t this avstera on
atudent could not, he ald. be other than
disastrous. Men who would not pay thlr
oeoia, ne aectaren. were not nt for roln-
Inters. Dr. Hale, srho waa Informed of
th reception hi report met with, said:
The gentlemen are too hasty: they
do not know an fh fact. They should
rtad all of the report, which shows the
smau return of the loans. When the
Plan was irm put Into effect tho re
quirements were lax. No notes were
taken and the nwiry was generaltT con
sidered as a gtft In the cause f Christ.
N note -were required up to 1. Again,
some of those tided student have taken
charges where they can barely get a
living. Other of them hav riled. Tut
the Tmvm causa of the showing In the Te
non rs mere It the fact that the great
bunt or thl fMu.WO ha be-n loaneC o
recently that sufficient time ha -not
elnirsnl for Its repayment."

NEW YORK BANKS.
York. May . Purely Rratnclal
rvmlderutlrrn were the Important factors
In shaping Wall street sentiment Curing
the week. The withdrawal of IE.S3i.6d)) in
na from the treasury during the -week
and indtentlona that draft upon the
gevemment reserve would probably con
tinue, caused some apprehension which
trauld aetm to h nrj'nature, owlna; to
the fact that the- aaury holdings of

New York. May . The Ftnanclr?ar:
Ytie atonement of the Associated Ptvnks
of New York for the week ending May
Is tn marked contrast with the one pre
ceding it. The change s due rruvhtly to
centmueti exports of gold, -which have
drawn from the banks a targe amomtt of
frmds which otherwise would haw been
counted hv excess of the reserve. A note-
hy expansion In loans vll ItM-VX)
wa also an appreciable factor In -thl
connection and wa one M the most fa
vornble features of the tatement. Indt
enrrng aa R does, a demand to a remt

market for ' loans during the -week wa
on a steadier basis, destte fke irola
shlytmnta, .atnd the demarvl for commer

and the business of the banks has taken
on a broadening character.
Anotker event, which has had a hearing
on the situation, has been the payment

that uhogethxar the -reek's opennlon
prevented an accumulation mt Inferior

London, May 1-South African roubtea
ar the talk of the hour, and every other

colonic. Joseph Chamberlain, that ne)
committee of Inquiry Into tha affairs of

until Jun 11. and that Cecil Rhode, to

the company's territory and as director
ot that organisation, hava caused muck
disappointment among th mass of E

rlenced a feeling of shame and humilia
tion at th recent development at Pretoria-
Chamberlain, It la weil known,
yielded to the pressor brought to bear
upon him 4y friends of th ccmpany
who are Influential socially and politi
cally, and It seems evident that th gov
