Tuesday of last week the Utica, N. Y.,
presbytery in session at Little Falls, had
a debate over the question of creed re

The paragraphs of the confession that J
are the subjects of contention are 1 to 7
of chapter 3, covering the doctrines of
election and reprobation.
The account of the session continuing,
says: The liberal element voted the res
olution down by a big majority, and a
resolution was introduced recommend
ing that, in view of present conditions,
the general assembly be asked to con
sider whether the time has not come for
instituting a movement to effect in part
a revision of the doctrinal standards or
the adoption of a simpler form of con
fession. During the debate on the question
Bev. Ralph W. Brokaw, of Utica, called
the Westminster confession a "back
number," and said it should be put in a
glass case for preservation. Another
Utica minister termed it "a monumental
literary curiosity of no practical use in
church work." Duane D. Foote, an
aged elder from a Lewis County church,
protested against any change. He said
the Westminster confession was the
bread and butter of the religion of his
life, and he did not propose to change
his bill of fare now. Only Mr. Foote
and a half dozen others voted against
Congressman Burket of the First Ne
braska district was renominated Thurs
day without a dissenting vote, and spoke
briefly of the straightforward course and
splendid traditions of the republican
party. He defended the Porto Bican
tariff bill in unqualified terms. Direct
taxation on the island, he said, was im
practicable for the reason that there
would be no revenue for at least one
year and a half. He said there had not
been passed in recent years a more patri
otic act than the Porto Bican tariff bill,
whose chief opponents were the Sugar
and Tobacco trust magnates. He closed
by saying that the republican party had
the nerve as in the past, to advocate
what it believed was right.
The new through trains of the Bur
lington and Northern Pacific railroads
between St. Louis and Portland will

over this long stretch without change of
any kind. The longest run of a through
train is between New Orleans and San
Francisco by the Southern Pacific.

E. K. Valentine is something of a

touching speech, which was a character
sketch of the late Richard P. Bland, the
tribute of a friend to man who had
gained the respect of his political oppo
nents, but, without mentioning any
other names, the connection and the
pictnred-oppoeite contained in the fol
lowing point to Bryan: "There was
nothing spectacular nor sensational
about Mr. Bland. He was not a political
graphophone, always speaking, nor an
importunate mendicant for popular ap
plause. He was an earnest, honest and
modest man of strong intellect and pro
found convictions of duty."
The Nebraska delegation to the dem
ocratic national convention has engaged
the most elaborate and expensive quar
ters of any state in tho union. It is
fitting that the Nebraskans should give
the people an object lesson on what re
publican prosperity has done for the
people of the state. Four years ago the
delegation had modest quartets in a
second-class hotel in Chicago, but those
were democratic times. The promised
display, however, hardly comports with
the doctrine of Jeffersonian simplicity
and the talk of the great advocate of the
"common people." Nebraska City Press.

with more discretion in political matters
than Admiral Dewey. The suggestion
that he be nominated for the vice-presidency
does not deceive him or lift him
off his feet. He regards it as a comDli-

from the people. He says he has lived
to see the North and the South a united
country, and the Confederates and Fed

The Papillion Times (whose editor,
Mr. Howard, seeks the nomination for
an important state office on the fusion
ticket), says there is "a colored gentle
man in the committee wood-pile, and it
is time to smoke him out," charging that
"the committees of the fusion parties are
planning a scheme to make a division of
the state offices in advance of the state
conventions." Doubtless they are, and
doubtless they will succeed. You'll vote
the ticket "for Bryan's sake."

Passengers going east for business, will
naturally gravitate to Chicago as the
great commercial center. Passengers
re-visiting friends or relatives in the
eastern states always desire to "take in"
Chicago en route. All claases of passen
gers will find that the "Short Line" or

affords excellent facilities to reach their
destinations in a manner that will be

Some years ago an Inquisitive med

lotine la a big waxworks exhibition la
London, took It Into his head that the
aort of yoke which fits down on the
shoulders of the criminal to hold him
la 'his place would not be sufficient to
confine a person who struggled.
His cariosity on that point led him
to watch till the place was empty,
whea he actually put himself in, let
ting down the yoke. He soon found,
however, that he waa quite unable to
lift It, and It at once flashed into his
salad that the sharp ax suspended over
his neck might not be firmly fixed, or It
-would fall, as It should, with a touch.
He was afraid to struggle lest the
shaking Should bring It down and at
once deposit his head in the basket of
sawdust below him. Into which bis
eyes were of necessity steadily look

plight, he was overjoyed to hear the
approach of a visitor, whom he Im
plored to release him. It was In vain.
"I'm thinking," said the gentleman,
a Scottish visitor to the metropolis,
to his wife, "that be must be hired to
show how the thing acts, and I think
we'd better not interfere."
So the luckless student was left till
one of the attendants came in and
made fast the ax before releasing him
from his predicament The ax was
afterward removed and laid by the
side of the structure to prevent future

'There are many people who do not
care for libraries who pride themselves
on having "only the books they read"
about them, but the answer made by
a distinguished scholar to one of those
persons very well illustrates how valu
able Is this Idea as to what a library
should be. The scholar was connected
with an Institution of learning which
had been greatly helped by a liberal
man of the neighborhood, but the liber
al man was not niuch of a sympathizer
with the Idea of increasing the library.
When appealed to in the matter, he re
plied: "More books? Dear me, It seems to
me you've got more than yon can read
now. Have you read all you have al
"No," returned the scholar, "and I
never expect to read them all."
"Then why do you want more?"
"Let me ask you," said the scholar,
"did you ever read the dictionary
"Certainly not," was the reply.
"Well, sir," said the scholar, "a libra
ry is my dictionary."
The answer was convincing, and the
merchant provided the professor with
