The synod convened at 8.30 and opened
with prayer by I'.cv. K. K. Bell. It wus
resolved that the synod would htand
finally adjourned on Monday evening
next at 4 o'clock. On motion of Hov. J.C.
KuulVman it was resolved that a commit
tee should bo appointed to devise ways
and means to prevent Such frequent nnd
protracted vacancies in thu congrega
tions. This same subject had been
brought before the synod by overtures
proposing the appointment of a board of
supply for vacant charges. This had been
winced in the hands of a committee
which reported recommending thut the
district synods bo advised to adopt
such legislation as will require the
church council of all charges mndo
vacant , to report the same nromplly to
the president of the synod with which it
fitand.s connected , and to sookhis counsel
respecting the choice of n pastor ; and
that the presidents of all the district
synods bo constituted n general commit
tee on whom .shall devolve the duty of
corresponding and conferring with each
other relative to supply of vacant churches
nnd finding Holds for capable preachers
who desire employment.
The report was adopted.
The report ot the committee on prop
erty of the German Theological semi
nary , in Chicago , occasioned a long dis
cussion , as was frequently the cnso dur
ing the session when matter pertaining
to German work wore under considera
tion. The n hole subject was , referred to
'tlm board of education with power to act.
The committee to nominate delegates
to other ecclesiastical bodies , reported
flho following names :

byterian Churoh Hov. \ \ . M. Baum , D.

Tlio report waa adopted.
The report of the statistical secretary
having shown a discrepancy between the
number of communicants in the previous
report nnd the uumbor in this report ,
when the additions were taken into ac
count , occasioned a discussion which de
veloped the fact that in some instances
pastors _ failed to report all who were en
titled to bo considered as members nnd
yet were inactive. Tlio motive for ox-
eluding such persons from the
Jibt m found in the fact
that tlio apportionment of money
to bo collected Jor benevolent purposes
was based upon the number of members
on the roll ot each church. In view of
those facts the following resolutions wore
adopted :
KesolvPd , 'That It Is the sense of the eon-
eral synod that no one can l > < dropped fioni
the rolls of church membership on earth ex
cept In ono of three wavs , viz : by death , by
lionornblo transfer , or by excommunication.
Itosolved , Thnttho different delegations
bo urircil to press this mutter upon the notice
of their respective synods to prevent im
proper reduction of our rolls.
'Iho special committee on the Lord's
clay and temperance , which had boon
appointed by suggestion of Hov. N. Van-
Alstinu , submitted a serious of seven res
olutions setting forth the duty of keep
ing the Sabbath day holy.and the evils of
Intemperance and the tralllc in strong
drink , especially in thjir ofl'oct upon
Lord's day observance. The saloon was
declared to bo the greatest anuruy of- the
Lord's day.
"No notion on this report was reached
nt the time for adjournment , The closing
prayer was made by Kev. .1. F. Shearer.
The closing session of the Lutncrnn
synod was opened with prayer by llov.
J. A.'Tvirnest.
The consideration of .the report of the
committee , on.tho Lord'3 Day and tem
perance , which was pondingat the close
of tlio morning session , was .resumed ,
nnd after laying on Uio table oiio resolu
tion that scorned , objectionable , the re
port was adopted.
The hymn book committee -iiskod for
instructions concerning the cheap edi
tion of the Book of Worship , which , at a
previous session , had been ordered to bo
published. The original action was so
modified that the committee was ordered
to publish an abridged edition of the
Hook of Worship to contain not 'more
than eighty pages. The committee to
make the selection of h mns for this
nbridgomont consists of Hcv. J. A. Glut-/ ,
Kev. S. B. Burintz nnd Hev. II. L.
Uaughcr , U. D.
The report of the committee on the let
ter ot the bishop's of the Protestant-
Kpiscopal church on Christian Unity was
considered. This report was prepared in
u very short time , ns the letter was not
placed in the hands of the president of
the synod until late in its sessions. The
following abstract of the report was pre
pared by-trie author. The report hailed
this friendly communication from a com
munion so closely related in Its articles
of doctrine ; nnd its forms ofi worship tq
the church represented by thin body. It
nlso expressed a deep sense of the cvlla
. whiuh.innrk the diyislons of the Christian
church and n readiness to enter in broth
erly conference wirn other "bodies for the
removal .of these evils , bnt hold that the
restoration of organic unltyat the present
rorlodlft neither desirable nor practicable.
V'hilc. holding earnestly to thp Niccno
creed , this body cannot consent to the
view that this is a sullicient statement of
the Christian faith as it fails to guard
> * ngainst grievous errors which have crept
into the church nnd Is silent , among
other things , on the 'sacraments , the
p'roper administration of which are in
this very declaration accounted h vital
feature of Christian faith and order. On
the "Historic Kpisoopnto" the ground
was taken that no form of church gov
ernment is prescribed by the gospel or
cssonttial to its success yet declaring a
willingness to accept the Episcopate as
it obtained in the Auostolio. church nnd
ts it was understood by the grunt body
of reformers , both Anglican and Ger
man , This report was adopted.
A-commlttco of three clergymen and ,
three laymen was appointed to hold
further conference with the committee
of the Protestant -Episcopal churcli ' ,
touching the vital' question of mutual
recognition and co-operation , and this
committee' wad Instructed to maintain the
position that true Christian unity rnnst
arisn out cfti- common faith nnd to offer ]
us the sufficient basis for this end , tba
Augsburg confession , the historic basis of
I'rotcsUnilsni and by caramon consent
the mo t catholic expression of the
pom man faith.

> ort of the committee on address of the
National Woman's Sufl'rago association.
The report reviewed the subject and de
clared it to bn worth investigation and
study , but did not commit the synod to
any dclinlto opinion. The report was
idoptod without argument. Hov. 11. L.
[ laugher , 1) . U , . presented the report on
: ho state of the church. The liguros
found in various places in those reports
were brought together and thu informa
tion g'lthurud from the reports of the
various boards formed fhe basis for an
interesting and succostivo review of the
whole Held of work in which the churches
aud boards of the conoral synod are en
gaged. The report was adopted and
ordered to bo printed In the" form of a
Iract for general circulation. On
motion ot Kev. H , R. Fonnor it was
resolved that the secretary of Iho general
synod bo instructed to have mailed to
every Lutheran minister in the United
States and Canada irrespective of synod-
ical sulootions and doctrinal differences ,
a ropy of the minted minuteof the
present convention , as soon as the same
shall have- been issued.
DHov. J. D. Scvcritighaus road the report
of thu committee on foreign correspon
dence , suggesting that there was no need
of continuing the committee. The com-
mittco Is therefore discharged.
Hov. 11. L. Uaiighor , U. U. , introduced
a icrics of resolutions calling for the
appointment of n committee to prepare a
development of Lentior's small catechism

Kev. H. L. Bnughor , 1) . 1) . , who repre

following preamble and resolutions :
Inasmuch as for twelve years and moio ,

A Hrenk For liberty.
The men who were arrested the other
night charged with a conspiracy to rob
the MlHsouri Pacific train , made a des
perate cflbr } t yesterday afternoon to cs-
capo. They were Sentenced to thirty
rtaj's in the county jail on the chareo of
vagrancy , by Judge Berka. Officers
Wliulcn and Shanolmn were dctailo'd to
conduct the men to the county jail. The
prisoners were taken np shortly
before 7 o'clock. Jailor Mil
ler happened to bo absent at
that hour and the ofliccrs started to take
the men through the jailer's residence to
the jail. As the officers wcro passing
through the hallway Ed Hartigan ami
Jolm Wilson made an attempt to osrapo.
Hartigan made aluugc at Oiliccr Whalcn
and was mot by n blow in the face that
shook his resolution. Ho was clubbed
into submission so that Whalcu , ny n
vigorous use ot his club and gun , man
aged to keep the two Hartigans and Tom
1'oloy under his coqtrol , Wilson was
more. fortunate at- first in his effort. Ho
succeeded in dodging Oiliccr SUanohan
and darted out of the open door , Shano-
haa gave hot .pursuit and after a
lively chase overhauled his man at the
corner of Twentieth and Harnoy streets.
The 'prison'crs wore finally1 secured and
locked up. Meanwhile the police uro
working on. clues in expectation of produc
ing evidence that will convict the men of n
moro serious ofFeoite when they have
snrvcd1 their vagranny sentence.
She Wanted to Drown.
Lcona Grccuwaldwas taken to the city
jail last' evening oa charge of intoxica
tion , and attempted to commit suicide.
The statement by the police is that Miss
Grconwald threw herself into a puddle
of water and mud at the corner of Ninth
and Jones streets ; aud then ran toward
the riyer. As sh'e reached tin ) water's
edge , Officer WcOarty , who had been
chasing hqr , reached tbo riyer just as she
was about to spring in. When Miss
Grrcnwuld was asaisted from the "hurry
wagon" u > d escorted to , her apartment in
hotel do.Orrasby SOQ was covered with a
delicately shad * ! coat of mud fresco ,
which she had obtained in the puddle.
Bho had put bar lace downward in the
mjjij , am4 her _ featpre-i were in consequence
quence making au obedient cast of them-
solves. The story goes that Leona and
her slMer c me bere from Iowa
a few months ago , and that since
then the former has. been living
with a mui who worked on the grade.
The course of true love has not run
smoothly of l&te , and yesterday the man

or thought she did. Upon his declara
tion she failed to do what she would if
she had known men bettor. She ought
to have judt waited for his penitent re
turn , nnd then have made him buy her anew

bowl up. She then thought of suicide in
some manner. She first tried tlio puddle ,
to find it too shallow. Thou she wont for

LilglitnlriB Struct.o Stove. "
The storm which has boon visiting
Omaha during the past week culminated
at 4 o'clock 3-ostorday afternoon in a
down-pour of rain , accompanied by vivid
lightning nnd shaip peals of thunder.
The streets ran dcop streams of water
ami Iho shelterless have had a hard time
of it. The experience ot several localities
ot the city was quite unpleasant , owing
to the proximity of lightning strokes.
The first building which was actually lilt
was the maison do joie of u notorious
woman , whom the inmates of her estab
lishment address as "Mother Emma , " but
who ij , more commonly known as French
Em. The lightning struck a chimney of
her house , on Twelfth street , between
Dodge and Capital avenue , went down
into the garret , down a stovepipe , through
a steve , jumped to another stovepipe ,
followed it to the lloor beneath , ran
across a brussolls carpet , and iinaliy de
scended by another stovcpipn and a piece
of scantling to the ground. Two woman
in the hoiifo were knocked over. One ,
named Gypsy , was thrown from
a sofa to a standing position
in the middle of the room and then ,
knocked down with u suddenness that
made her think her "lover" had arrived.
Various carthonwtiro articles wcro bro
ken , and a bottle of whisky was myste
riously transferred from u small shelf to
an obscure corner of the room , and still
was intact as to contents. Its anxious
owner tipped it up and took a long pull
before she was reassured , not even bsing
convinced by statement that
lightning had too much discretion to fool
with the iluid.
'Trench Em , " who is built somewhat on
tha plan of an cm quad , was consider
ably agitated. She led the way to liar
own room , where she staled she was
asleep when the lightning struck , and
exclaimed , "Look at 7.0 stove ! Look at
/.o steve ! Him lightning lie eoofn down

Mr. Colpotzor's residence. It having
boon learned that there was no daugcr ot
a lire there , the thrco teams with'carts
and trucks wcro sent on the fly for the
second box , No. 61. Down Farnam
street they came thundering , nnd passed
the opera house just as the'.Naiad Queen
matinee was out. Hundreds of persons
wcro in the streets booking cabs and
struot cars in the rain. The scattering
which tlio swift coming lire engines ,
with their horses on a mud run , caused
was remarkable. Everyone regained tlio
sidewalks in safety.
A washout occurred on the uowly
opened Fariiamand Park Avonuu street
car lino. The point was on Virginia
street near Leavenwortli. Fully 101) ) feet
of track was washed away and under
mined so thut cars could not pass over it.
As u result the Farnam nnd Park Avenue
line cars wore run over the St. Mary's
Avenue tracks last evening and some delay -
lay was necessarily caused. The break
will bo repaired thus morning.
Tlio Naiad Qnooii Will Be Presented
Acnln on Tuesday Night.
Last night tlio seventh consecutive per
formance of tli "Naiad Queen" was given
to a largo audience at the Bnyd. Not
withstanding the rain of yesterday after
noon tlio performance at the matinee was
the most largely attended that has over
been given in the house. Nearly 1,400
people were in the'honso.
The patronage of this remarkable pro
duction increased from the opening
night , notwithstanding the warm weather
until the rain interfered. That alone
prevented u succession of houses the
largest in tho- history of the theatre. Be
cause of this rain , therefore , thousands
of our people have , beort prevented from
witnessing this almost entrancing 'piece.
The cost of producing -the opera
however , has boon as great as , if the
houses had been uniformly largo , and
this expense lias not been less than ? 2,700.
It would not bo well for Omaha to have ,
it said abroad that U spectacle which has
everywhere not only attracted thousands
of people but at the same time liberally
rewarded its management , fftjled hero to
receive the attention which Ih'o merits of
the piece deserved , and tlio aintcjliggnce ,
wealth ami culture of our pcdplc-'iujglu
easily bestow upon it. This view 'in en
tertained bv hundreds of leading citizens
who second the BKK'S suggestion , that
the opera should bo repeated. The fol
lowing corrospdndonco' explains itself.

To-morrow' night tlio popular come
dian , Uolaiul Hoed , will appearnt Boyd'n
opera house in his funny comedy of
"IIuuiwiK. " Jlic performance will bo
given for tlio benefit of the Omaha lodpn
of Elks , anil a rousing hon o is assured.
The San Frauctauo Chronicle says : It is
no humbug that Fred .Marsden , the pro
lific playwright , has written for Roland
llcccl nnd denominated "Ilumbujj. " The
comedy has a plot thut is in estricalile
confusion from the first scene in the first
net to tlio last , scone in the last act , when ,
as as possible , it is unraveled , though
the mixed circumstances in a certain d -
{ yreo still exist. The theater was well
filled with an audience that was kept in a
continual roar of laughter. Tlio comrdv
is a much bettor one than the same au
thor's "Cheek , " and the company is im
proved. As Jack Luster , Mr. Heed is in
imitable , and the reception accorded him
last night was a very flattering one. His
song with "The Accent On. " met with
the hearty applause that it always re
ceived , and he was forced to respond
with verse after verse , and in the second
act when Mr. Heed sings "Jam , " and ac
companies himself on the piano , the
laughter is miDoumlpd. He also sang anew
now version of the "Hen Convention'rin
a capital manner , but when he sang "A
Pocket Edition of the 'Mikado , ' " the ap
plause was infectious and the whole
house rang with laughter.
The Chicago Inter-Ocean of a rccont
date has the following concerning Jef
freys-Lewis , who plays at Boyd's opera
house no.\t Pridayand Saturday : "After
an absence of about two voars Miss
Jouroys-LowLs appeared before a Chicago
cage audience last night at the Chicago
oper.i house. The play was Menvalc's
"Forgol-Me-Not , " lirst presented to
Americans by Miss Genoviovo. Ward.
Miss Lewis' impersonation of the heroine.
Stephanie do Mohrivart , is full of fever
ish passion and intense realism. She in
vests the part with the fervid impetuosity
of a young and passionate woman , and
at no point in the play is deficient in the
qualifications winch the character re
quires. Her work throughout is that of
a most careful and deserving artist ,
whoso equals arc few on tlio American
stage. Mr. Harry Mainhall acceptably
sustained tiie roln of Sir Horace Wolby. * '

Mr. Hanson , the railroad enthusiast of
Yankton , has written a letter to the
Omaha hoard of trade urging that body
to go ahead with tha Omaha & Yank-ion
railroad scheme , whether the proposition
of Mr. Young and his Chicago syndicate
is satisfactory or not. Ho says that

Naval Hills \VuntciI.
WASIII.VOTOV , Juno 11. The backward
ness of ship Imlhlers in applying for Information
mation ns to the plans and specifications for
the now navy cruisers Is causlnc consider
able apprehension among navy ofHeers. Thus
ar there has been but ono Inquiry for Information
mation about the plans ot the ulnetccn-knot
cruiser that o the Union woiks , of San
Frnnclsco-and a full s > ct of drawings anil
specifications have been mailed to tliPin. No
Inquiry has yet been received na to Newark ,
and there does not seem to bo any disposition
nmonc ship builders to undertake her con
struction at tlio UMxlmuni cost allowed by
congress , SI.IXW.OOO. The reason for this
backwardness ciV'tho ' i.nrt of builders is
ascribed at the navy department to the rapIdly -
Idly increasing cost of material. The simply
of material , partlculnily stcul plates , used in
tlio construction of these vessels , Is at
present very lintlt < < l , and every contract Jor
a new vessel stUI.fui thor Increases tlio pried.
There Is also tf largo private demand for
steel. . .
Concluded to Ho Honest Dccnttio Ills
lltmlnotn Dili Not Par.
1 once had the pleasure of making
visit with the governor of the state o
Illinois to the penitentiary at Jollet , say
n writer in the International Record.
There was confined in it at the time a very
noted burglar from the city of Chicago.
The governor had promised that ho
would have some conversation with him
In rcg-ird to an alibi which ho claimed to
bo able to prove and establish his Inno
cence of the crime of which he had been
convicted. I had some impression of tlio
character of this man when I saw the
warden , on sending for mm , open a
drawer In his desk , take out a revolver
and put it ill his pocket. The prisoner
was brought in and the governor listened
to the tale of his alibi. At its conclusion
lie inquired :
' 'How many burglaries have you over
committed ? "
"I don't know , governor ; I never kept
count. I suppose about a hundred. "
"You have been a very bad man.1
"Who says so , governor ? "
The governor was taken somewhat
aback and answered. "The newspapers'.1'
"Why , governor , I have seen your
name in tlio newspayers once or twice.
If they will say such things about a man
in your position , what must bo expected
of a man in mine ? "
lie went on to remark that ho need
have no hesitation in granting him a
pardon , for , though ho made no pro
fessions of repentance it would bo
absurd to do that ho had como to
the conclusion while in prison that a
life of crime docs not pay. Ho hail tried
it. Ho had also been all his life a burg
lar. Ho had robbed banks' ; he had had
hundreds of thousands ot dollars pass
through his hands , and ho was just as
poor as when ho began ; and , having
como to that conclusion , ho thought that
the governor might safely rcleaso him ,
since ho fully meant to quit the business
and follow some other pursuit for a liv
ing. Hut , in so far as burglary in itself
is concerned , lie wished him to under
stand ho regarded it just as legitimate a
vocation in life as the practice of law or
of medicine or the preaching of the
The governor asked : "How do you
make that out1
"Why , property has certain rights ,
powers" and privileges. It must have
corresponding obligations , and the lirat
duty of properly is totako care of ilsolt.
If in a country neighborhood there are
three stores doing a general busihos" ,
and there is not business , enough to sup
port more than two merchants' familio.s ,
what happens ? Two of these merchants
combine against the third , and by a
judicious application ot the laws of trade
they dnvo him out of business and divert
to their own pockets the profits whiph ho
otherwise would have made. Kvory-
bodyssys that is right. Now , what dif
ference does it iniiKo whether this is.
done by a judicious \\-o \ of tlio
laws of trade or by a moro summary pro
cess ? Why , governor , you know very
well that there are a great many men in
this world who arc rich who have no
more right to what they have than you
or I. "
"lo I understand , " said the governor ,
"that you contlno yourself in your depre
dations to that class of people ? "
"Oh , " he replied , "I aim to I aim to.
The last man 1 robbed was a member of
congress. "
It is needless to say that the governor
did not pardon him. He served his term ,
has since served a term In the eastern
penitentiary of Pennsylvania , ami is
understood now to bo in the Virginia
penitentiary at Richmond.
What Befell tlio Imsr of 1OO Who
StfirtoU lilfo Together.
Everybody is grouped with certain
others in this life. Wo may not kncn if ,
but piinh is the fret. There are groups ot
100 , groups of 1,000. and groups of still
larger numbers all starting together in
life at the same time. All are presumably
upon the same footing and with equal
advantages and the same good fortune as
to health and favorable surrounding- : .
This , however , is only true in theory.
Are you aware that of the nincty-nino
persons in the group that started out in
lifo witli you only about fifty survive the
fifteenth year ? Thirty jog along with
you till you arc 40. When you arc CO
only eighteen of your companions re-
mam. Aut 70 but ten are loft , at 80 you
will have reason to feel lonely , for only
four of your original companions will bu
with you. Ono of these will drag out a
lonely existence to ago 00 , possibly 100 ,
when the last of the group will bo no
more. Tlicso figures arc based on an
estimate in the United States census re
port of 1830.
Now supposing , if it were possible , that
these 100 persons , or their parenss fen
them , had embarked in au assessment
lifo insurance scheme as they stopped
upon the threshold of life , what would
have been the outcome of the venture ?
If the first fifteen years' death , amount
ing to nearly fifty per cent , of the whole
nnmbor. had not "busted" the concern ,
what , think you , would have been the
ultimate opinion of tlio value of that kind
of insurance of the Single old fellow who
held out faithful to the end ? After
coming up to the scratch ninety-
nine times , and paying assessments
for thu death of all his com
panions , no one is left to pay for him.
Nothing more forcibly illustrates the ab
surdity of assessment lifo insurance. It
is true tlio claim is made that "now
blood" is continually brought in to take
the place of the deceased members , but
what folly is it for a young , healthy
risk to voluntarily go into a society of
aped and , perhaps , decrepit members
.with the expectation of boating the old
follows by an early and untimely death !
Tlio theory is fallacious. Nothing but
the level premium plan of the regular
.insurance companies meets the iniquities
of such eases , and places all , whether elder
or young , upon an equal footing , and in
vests all with equal risks.
