twenty second nnnunl convention of
the Woman's Christian Tcinnornnoo
union begun hero to-dny. Tim morn
ing prayer meeting wus led by Miss
Elizabeth W. (Ircenwood, national
evangelistic superintendent. Then
Miss Frnnccs E. Willnrd took control
and Mm C. Hoffman, of Missouri, tho
recording Bccrctary, began tho calling
of tho roll. Miss, Wlllard then read
bei annual address.
In opening, Miss W-lllard rovlowcd
tno progress or temperance In every
direction ami lauded tho constantly
increasing participation of women in
thcafTuhs of tho world. Sho dwelt
upon tho proposed union of reform
forces to work for direct legislation,
Btato or national control of monopo
lies, tho cleution of president and vlco
E resident and United .States senators
y direct votes of tho people, equal
nuilrago for men and women, no land
tcnuro without uso and occupation,
prohibition of tho liquor trallle, tho
Issuing of nil money by tho govern
ment only and free hIIvc coinage at
tho ratio of 10 to 1. She declared that
labor movements wero tho natural
allies of tho temperance causo and
lauded tho unions mid federations.
She decried tho revival of Napoleon
worship, Social purity movements
wero praised in strong terms mid an
equal standard for tliosexes called for.
Miss Willard urged determined uc
tlon by women for tho elevation of
tho singe, literature and of art and
the establishment of places whore
young women and men could meet for
harmless nmuseinont. Of tho public
amusements, she said: "Jt is my de
liberate conviction that until women
aro associated witli men In tho super
vision of public ninuscnipnts theio is
practically no hope of utilizing this
mighty forco for tho purification and
uplifting of humanity. Wo forget
thntBlnco tlmo began these amuse
ments have ,beon regulated by men,
and tho tendency has been constantly
to degrade women for the purposes of
gain; but if women had a voice in de
termining what spectacles should bo
put bofore tho peoplc,they would Whig
their higher sense of reserve mm
modesty to correct tho low ntandurds
which oven well intoiitioued men havo
learned by long familiarity to accept
as a "necessary ovll " It Is tho
province of good women to deepen in
tho minds of men the perception that
It Is impossible to degrade one class of
women without diminishing tho pub
lic respect for all; and that tho dis
graceful exhibition of tho woman who
caters to tho degraded taste of tho
men.in the nudicneo cm but lowrn tho
standing of every mnn'b sister and
Mlfcs Willnrd holds to tho Idea that
alio has advocated so long, that tho
prohibition party should ehange its
name to Homo 1'iotection party. "Sho
tiys'that the use of tho word prohibi
tions tho iiiimo of n party has given
excuse to tho pulpits of tho laud to
ecaw from advocating tho principles
of prohibition. Tho Hoys' brigades tiro
spoken of with great regret as foster
ing tho military spirit- It was stated
that' tho membership showed a gain,
Pennsylvania being the banner statu
in this regard.
Mrs. Mollio McGcc Kno.ll of Missis
nlppl, national evangelist, then led
services through the "evangelistic
hour" and "noon-tide prayer." after
syhlph the convention listened to tho
nnnunl report of tho treasurer, Mrs.
Helen M. Barker of Illinois. This
showed an increuho In membership

Well, as I said, I have no choice In tho

Wasiiixiuon-, Oct UI Tho answer
of Venezuela to tho Hrltish ultimatum
appears to be clearly foreshadowed in
an ofllclul statement from the Vene
zuela minister of foreign relations re
ceived here. It slates with posltivo
ne.ss the attitudo nnd policy of
Venezuela upon the exact subjects
covered In thu ultimatum and in .Min
ister Chamberlain's letter to tho gov
ernor of Hrit sh Guiana, and shows
that tho present ultimatum is a re
petition of tho demiind mado by Great
j.muni in uvuiiiuur last, as Urcat
Hritain had no minister in Veno.uela,
relations being broken off, the Ger
man minister consented to act In pre
senting tho Hritish demand. Vene
zuela promptly rejected tho demand
and refused to give tho assurances
Great Hritain asked.

Cr.r.VKLAND, Ohio. Oct. 21. Tho
eldest son of tho lato President, Harry
A. Garfield, whilo averse to express
ing himself in regard to Senator Slier
man's statements, finally bald: "It
has been tho policy of tho family not
to reply to charges that are inado
against my father, und so wo
have never given any- attention
to such as the Ro.scoo Conkliug
matter and other things of that kind.
Thero is In tho possession of our fam
ily all tho letters, manuscripts diaries
and such matter thnt was left by my
father, mul it is our intention to an
swer nil charges In tho form of a bio
graphy rather than as the charges aro
made. I do know ono thing. I am
and havo been a warm admirer and,
friend of Senator Sherman's und ?
know that my father always was. Of
course, Senator Sherman has a
perfect right to his own opin
ions, as has everybody else.
Tho nnrainatkn in 1K30 was considered
by my father's friends and nearly
everybody so bo tho result of a
peculiar condition of affairs. What
ever Senator Shermau may think
of it is his own matter, and ho has a
right to his own opinions. It may bo
that wo will havo something to say re
garding this matter, but I will not say
that wo will or will not. I could only
say that utter a conference with tho
family and lookine over soma of tho
impel'., It does not seem to mo right or
proper for aoyono to miko charges by
inference, but thoy should bo substan
tiated by papors mid documents. I do
not caro to inter Into a controversy
over it and prefer not to discuss tho
matter until 1 havo been tho book,
which I have ordered. I think what
ever reply wo may decide to make will
likely bo mado in tho form of n biog
raphy, hut at tlio same time It is pos
sible wo may decido otherwlso und
tuuko a statement regarding it.
