Lincoln dispatch: There Is a now
cause for disagreement between War
den Leldigh of tho penitentiary and
the stuto board of public lands and
buildings. The new cause of disagree
ment between these contending par
ties arises from the reportid sale by
the warden of some of tho hogs, a car
load, which wero raised on tho peni
tentiary grounds and uro tho property
of thu state. Tho members of tho
board say that this selling of stato
property by tho head of a state insti
tution without the consent of tho
board is without precedent, and in
direct violation of the rule which
governs such matters. The board Is
supposed to be responsible for all pur
chases and sales of property, and it
says it Is supposed that tho members
shall know of such transactions.

interests In tho East Mr. Allison
comes to Chicago In company with

lender in tho Houso of Representa
tives nnd ono of tho foremost Repub

BAPTISTS IN CONGRESS.
The National Convention Opened Impor
tant Matters to lie Considered.
PltoyiDKNCK, R. I., Nov. 13. Tho
national convention of Daptists opened
hero to-day with a great attendance.
Among tho delegates is John D, Roclce
fcllcr, who is very prominent in the
church on account of his liberal en
dowment of Its educational and elee
mosynary Institutions. The clerical
representation is also imposing. Every
prominent Daptlst interest in tho
United States is represented.
Homo missions havo assumed great
Importance. Dr. Thomas J, Morgan,
who is secretary of tho society in
charge of this work, has prepared a
report of unusual Interest upon which
the congress will take action. In tho
West and Northwest tho Daptist
church is making giant strides, but
tho lack of funds and men is a
source of embarrassment. Dr. Mor
gan Is tho leader of this mis
sion work, and what ho has to
say on the subject will receive great
attention. The missionaries through
out the country havo, in not a tow
cases, attained unusual eminence for
denominational workers. Among
these nro the Rev. N. D. Rairdeu, who
labors in Missouri; tho Rev. C. E. Con
ley, stationed in Michigan; the Rev.
E. D. Meredith of Kansas, and tho Rev.
A. W. Clark of Nebraska.
It is very likely that the congress
will take soma uetion with reference
to tho University of Chicago. A very
general impression exists in tho publio
mind that tho university is in somo
manner or other an official exponent
of Daptist ideas. This iuilucnco has
been very disagreeable to Daptists
Tho question of tho missions in
China will receive special attention,
wiiii a view to joining with other de
nominations for tho protection of mis
sionaries. Chicago l'lipers Cut Frjcej

Washington, Nov. 13, Lord Salis
bury's failure to mention tho Venezue
lan question, in his Guild hall speech,
is regarded ns a most significant omis
clon. Tho speech summed up tho
premier's position on all the foreign
questions regarded as of pressing im
portance, so that this avoidance of all
mention of Venezuela is construed to
mean that he attaches less importance
to it, und to tho controversy over tho
Monroo doctrine than had bceu sup
posed. A St. Louts Minister Disgraced.
