Chicago, Nov. 9. The sixteenth an
nual convention of the National
Women's Christian Temperance union
met here yesterday with four or five
hundred delegates present from all
parts of the country. The morning was
devoted to the reading of the scriptures
and prayer.
The majority of the convention is
strongly in favor of an alliance with tlie
third parly, yet they cnunot conceal
their onxiety as to the attitude of the
minority who believe in non-partisan
action. If the Iowa union withdraws
the breach will be irreparable. Last
year the national oSces claimed lC.OoO
local unions with a membership of 200,
000. To-day the official reiort showed
7,000 local unions with a membership of
142, 1 KJ. Among the number which
have withdrawn are such unions as
Miuneapolis, Cleveland and Chester
county, the latter comprising sixty
unions. xriuch startling figures disturb
the equanimity of the organization nud
this evident disaffection has made a
strong impression.
The atteruoou session was devoted to
the business of the union, the usual
committees being appointed, aud re
ports from tho executive committee,
the treasurer, nnd other officers read.
Miss Frances E. Willard, president of
the society, delivered Iter annual ad
dress to-night Iu beginning she said
patriotism had always been a part of
her religion, aud continued:
"Yon mo now iu Chicago. The Cro
nin murder trial is iu full blast. The
national flag was hissed and the red
flag of the communists applauded not
fur from here but a few days ago.
"The experiment of free government
in our largo towns nud cities is a failure
loudly confessed by tho meu them
selves. Nor nro the reasons for this
monumental catastrophe mysterious.
America has become the dumping
ground of Europeau cities; immigration
has steadily deteriorated iu proportion
na its quantity has grown. To-day we
have hundreds of thousands of anarch
ists among us. The multiplications of
conventions, tho enormous accumula
tions of capital, corporate combinations
aud the octopus grip of trusts render
our wage worker uneasy. Note the
snllen look ou the grim faces in the
mine and manufactory aud on the
streets; read the labor organs of the
da) nnd see if well-to-do Americans are
not nsleep ou the edge of a volcano.
Turning to politics Miss Willard said:
"Let it never be forgotten Hint we who
are here represent n nationalist move
ment; that it is our special prerogative
to note the political signs of promise
along the national hoiizon, nnd yonder
we see two great old war ships battering
each other ou tho high seas of the pres
idential campaign; we see that high
tariff and free trade; the spoils of office,
the glittering prizes of personal ambi
tion engage them altogether, while into
the view comes a glistening snil that
tells us she is launched ou a wave, the
good ship prohibition, the wave of
humanity, boundless and free.'
"Are wo nfraid to send our blessing
out after thnt ship across the stormy
water or to ask heaven's blessing on the
brave men who direct its destiny?
"Nay ; sink or swim, live or die, sur
vive or perish, wo have sounded forth
the trumpet that shall never call
Miss Willard recommended 'that they
ask congress to pass an amendment to
the interstate law prohibiting the brine
ing of alcoholic liquors into the prohi
hibition states, also that thev woik for
the Blair educational bill nnd the Blair
prohibition amendment to the national
constitution, nnd for a law forbidding
tue mnnulnclure 01 cignrettos and one
against smoking in waiting rooms and
She said the thanks of the convention
were due President Harrison for direct
ing that no liquor is to be sold 011 t he
government reservation in Washington
to Postmaster General Wanamaker for
his pronounced declaration in favor of
prohibition nnd Sabbath observance,
and added:
"Our protest should bo sent to Vice
President Morton for permitting a sa
loon nuder his new hotel. It was well
known the vice president was the enemy
of prohibition, but that he would thus
ontrnge christian sentiment lv a per
sonal alliance with tho liquor traffic no
one wonia hnve believed but for the in
1 dutiable proof.

eloquent tribute to the memory of the

Washinotok, November 8. General
Greeley, chief signal officer, in his nn
nual report says: "In the performance
of strict military duties, which by law
devolves on him, the chief signal officer
is seriously embnirassed by tho ntter
lack of facilities fur using or caring for
the field telegraph trains or other signal
equipments under his charge; for the
practical training nnd drilling of tl;
officers and enlisted men of tho signal
corps, and lastly, to a minor exleut, by
the need of liberal appropriations. Un
der such conditions the officer and men
of this service nre gradually bin surely
retrograding ns regard their military
duties, aud nt the end tb fiscal year t he
condition of the signal instruction iu the
army is at the loweat ebb it bu erer
known." He recommend, therefore,
that either instruction in tli art of mil
itary signaling be abandoned or aapl
material and moral support be given
the chief, so he may raise it to a tnsU
standard of efficiency. Sxsaking of the ,
weather forecasts, Ueoerm ureeiv can

the Seventh internal revenue district,

shot nnd futnlly wounded.

both suddenly drew their weapon",
Swope a pistol aud Uoodloe a clasp

rawn Swope tired, the ball striking
Goodloe iu the abdomen. Goodloe
then stabbed his opponent in the breast.
After several blows had been struck by
Goodloe, Swope tired again, missiug
Goodloe. After firing the second shot,
Colonel Swope fell on his fnce, nnd wel
tering iu his blood, died nlmost iustant-
ly. On his person were found thirteen
wounds, thev being on the back and

Immediately after the lulling Colonel
Goodloe went to a pb.vsiciuu's office,
where his wounds were examined. He
was perfectly cool, and mado disposi

1 he cause of the difficulty was a state
ment made Ln the republican conven
tion ou May 1, 188, by Goodloe, that
fully two-thirds of the l avette countv
delegation in the convention would not
speak to Swope.
Colonel Uoodloe has for years been a
