Cable Special to tlio UKK.J The ercat body
of American Methodists maybe glad to know
that London at last has a cathedral-llko , Im
mense stout ! cdllice , with n tower and steeple ,
for We3lojan worship , which was opened to
day for the lirst tlmo for services. This Is al
thn corner of Llndn and Thayer streets , not
far trom thn palatial pllo belonging to the
Duke of Manchester. In front Is the central
portico , consisting ot Doric columns In the
lower story , fluted columns above and finished
by ornamented pediments. Tlio chuicli ros

with Corinthian capitals mid richly pan-
nrlled celling , covering the entire area. 11
Is decidedly thu handsomest ehapel In Lon
don. Itov. K. N. Young , D. D. , recently
president of the conference , preached
-this moinlng to an overflowing
congregation. The debates In the
last conference showed that It was con
sidered that so fat as Methodism was con
ccrned In West Knd London , these were
aristocratic but godless quarters but , a !
was announced In this morning's sermon
not only witli a new and spacious church
on thn Bite of one of tlio oldest hlstorii
chapels In the metropolis will Methodism seel
thither to advance , but also with an
immense west-central mission aiithori/ed hj
the recent conference. Ono speaker then
said , "We must send tlio spirit of John Wes
ley among the dukes and aristocrats , but no
forfeiting the masses around them. "
Ono dally In a Icadei slid ot this mission
"A scheme has beim elaborated which as
Mireclly Is ono of. the most daiiug over at

become sesthetlc and social , and tin

tlio sanction of tlie inference. The Wesley ai
body , staid , conservative and respectable a
it long has bc n , has deliberately doteriiiinei
to take a If af out of the book of the Salvatloi
army on the ono hand and the high churcl
party oiv tlio other and make a bold ventun

There arc to bo all sorts of social movements

to break new ground In an area of Londoi

To see a Methodist preacher at the head of i

of the Salvation army and the beelnnlng of t

If It were not thought positively that Mr ,
Harnes is clearly sane and If ho did not tell
a connected and circumstantial narrative.
Mr , Harnes lias lived In Detroit for twenty-
live years. "Until twenty-one years old , "
said Mr. Dames , " 1 thought I was

MINNEAPOLIS , Oct. 2. | Special Telegram
to the IJKn.J Delegates to the Knights of
Labor convention which begins its annual
session here to-morrow , arrived yesterday
and to-day In great numbers. The venerable
disciple of St. Crispin , Hlchard Grlllltlis , of
Chicago , Is here. He Is 'he ' second ofllcer In
the national body , a man of good Ideas , and
will be heard from In the convention. The
session to begin to-morrow will probably be
thu most Important one In the history ot thu
organl/atlon and will have a marked bearing
upon Its future. Matters ot the greatest mo
ment to worklngmcn will como
up for settlement. Among tlio most
Important will be the endorsement of
Grand Master Workman I'ovvderly and the
question of the adoption ot a now constitu
tion or amending the old one. On the ques
tion ot the constitution the delegates are
% ery much divided. Some assert that a can
vass of delegates will show that tlio new
constitution will be adopted In spite of the
great opposition , which Is admitted , vvhllu
others are equally as sure that n canvass of
delegates'will prove that the old constitution
will be reaffirmed. Action must also be taken
regarding the attitude of the order toward
thn American Federation ot labor. Its new
rival , toward the International cigarmakeis
union , toward socialism and toward the
temperance question. The case ot thn
Canadian knights , ot thn Montauk distilct ,
and of John Morrison's cat net weavers , anil
of the malcontents from all quarters ot the
country , will be pushed to the tiont. .There
will probably bo \igorous elTortmule to
morrow toi the reinstatement ol ojlstrict
assembly 120 ( carDnt weavcis ) , ol Vow York.
It will doubtless fail , as Issues ot a similar
nature havn In tlio past. Another kirk will
come trom Gambrlnus assembly , ot Milwau
kee , made ilp of brewery eiiiplovcs , who do
not like tlio tcmticranco nlattorm ot the
order. The opinions eveijwhere among
delegates , trained by personal inter
views and by telegraph , aie to the
effect that Grand Master Woikman Powdcrlv
will lie indorsed and ro-eiccted. Itichaid
Grllllths , ot Chicago , says Im expects that
some opposition to Mr. Powderly will be
developed , but he deus not think it will
amount to much , Mt. GrlllHhs his traveled
extensively , especially In the west , and he
saja that "Serrenco Powderly" is the idol of
the knltrhts and ot thn working people.
Cardinal Gibbous has : i warm place in tlie
alfectlons ot the knights geneially. It was
piobubly duo more to tlio diplomacy of his
eminence that the complications which
threitened to arise between the Citlmlic
church and organ'/ed labor were settled.
The cardinal's visit to the northwest at this
particular time is specially interesting to the
assembling knights. Catholic and non-
Catholic knights alike seem to feel grateful
to the cardinal tor what ho did ( luring the
famous Dr. McGlynn trouble. It is the be
lief ot some of the most prominent knights
in the country that the several trades should
bo o-iranl/ed Into a 'edoratlon within the
Knights ot Lalnr and have slate and national
bodies only to bo subordinate to the main
body. There are those who seem to think
that the growing sentiment in this direction

question of general interest. From till
among the Chicago delegates , it is thought i
strenuous effort will be made to femove Gen

of acting in bad taith in many ways. Tbi
convention will be a bitter struggle from be
ginning to end , tlie anti-Powderly elemeu

ot ttio interesting features will be the debati

Nr.w VOHK , Oct. 2. [ Special Telegram to
the llKt.J : The week was by no means an
active ono In financial circles , but It was
nevertheless characterized by a much better
tone , so far as the markets are concerned ,
than has been the case for Rome time. Share
speculation , after a weak opening , became
strong , and during a greater part of the time
"howed an Improving tendency. Reactions
were not uncommon , but they served to
brine In buyers and each decline was suc
ceeded by higher figures than those ruling
before. Vanderbllts at lirst led tlio list , but
later on Gould stocks , Coalers , Pacifie'Mall ,
New r.ncland , Richmond Terminal , Louis
ville it Nashville and Union Pacllic all
became prominent and moved up anywhere
from 1 to 7 points. Aside from the easier
condition of money , which In Itself was a
powerful tactor In the direction of n better
market , tlio tlso was stimulated by
an advance In the price of coal , by
tlie declaration of the usual dividends by n
number of corporations , Including that on
New Kngland prefoned stock , by the rcor-
gar.tzMlon of the Pacllic Mall board , by re
ports that changes In the liiclimond Termi
nal management were Impending and that
Baltimore & Ohio affairs would be taken In
hand by syndicates , who , it was said , were
satlslied with the Investigation recently
made Into the condition ot the property. All
these matters had more or less Influence and
caused an advance , notwithstanding the
rain the west , which at times
seemed to threaten the peace of most of the
leading lines In that section. Dealings In
railroad bonds , vvhllu Dot large , gave evi
dence of tlie increased confidence which has
taken root as a rcsultof the tre isiiry's policy.
An easier feeling in money has induced put-
chases for Investment , at least to a moderate
extent , and has also led to more or less buy
ing on speculative account. Itatween these
two forces quite an important advance
was established. Comparatively little was
done in governments and prices were prac
tically unchanged. Foreign exchanges were
weakened , i luelly by tlie increased supply ot

A SuUJnot Nccillne Attention.
Dr.s MOINPS , la. , Oct. 2. [ Special to the
! KI : . | " 1 am glad to see tliat thn Minnesota
allroad commissioners have declared war
ipon the spring-lock sleeping-car berths , "
aid a well known tra\elur yesterday , "and
wish our Iowa commissioners would do the
ainc. A friend of mine narrowly escaped u
lorrlblc death on an Iowa sleeper recently
hrotigh that sauiejdeadly contrivance. There
vas a collision with his coach , and every
ipper berth In the car was slammed shut.
\sarulu ho uiuatly takes upper berths bv
preference. Ho Is a small man and doesn't
nlnd climbing , but this time he took a loucr
> eith , and lucky It was that ho did , for It ho
md been In an upper ho would have been
shut no In It , and smothered to death sure as
ate. " The fears expressed by this gentleman
are shared by many who travel much at
light. The Minnesota commissioners Insist
hat the spring locks shall be discarded , oven
at the cost of some Inconvenience to the
> orters. They demand that other fastenings
> e employed , and that stout 'chains Instead
of coiled sinlng" bo lined for holding the
> erths down. There is a very general desire
that the Iowa commissioners , who have
shown so much Interest In protecting the
Ives of travelers , should go u step farther
and take hold ot this question. Every man
vho travels niucli In sleeping-cars thinks
with a shudder of the awlul consequences If
ho spring that holds the upper berth down
should snap , and th" berth close up and im-
piison the luckless passenger.
The. notion of the coioner's jury at Du-
) iiquc In ( King the blame for a recent rail
road accident upon the company itself for
failure to make lilies of plain 11101111111 : , re
ceives ireheial approval. It too oftun hap
pens that an unfortunate conductor or other
emploje Is made the scapegoat for the rail
road company's negligence , in the case of
Iho Kaglo Point disaster it was shown that
the Instructions of the train dispatcher were
so anibUuous , though tollowlng the general
rules of the company , that the coudtictoi who
received thwii was misled Into a frinhttul
wreck. There Is hot indignation that the
company should tiy to bulldo/o Its employes
Into exonerating it from nlaine. as it is al-
icgetl to hnve. ilotn1. In this disaster the
trainmen as a into testified against the com
pany , and It is reported , were atterward
compelled to retract and admit that they
were mistaken 01 else receive thelrdischarge.
That is a kind of tyianny wliluh the public
will not stand.
While on the railroad question It is in or
der to remark that the Pullman Palace
Oar company comes up smiling again witli
its attempt to tvscape taxation in Iowa. Al
though Its cars are earning a mint of money
on Iowa roads , enjoying the protection of
Iowa laws , this great , greedy corporation
tties to escape paying a cent of taves for the
privileges It enjoys. Ttie other railroad com
panies that cioss thn state pay tholr share ot
taxes every year , but tlia Pullman company ,
that Is pieyfni : upon the public In the most
successful manner , tries to shirk out of any
tax. Last year the state concluded that it
had tooled with the company long enough ,
and so took le.-al measures to collect the tax
that had been assigned to it. The compiny
tried to euioiu It In the United States court ,
and Judge Brewer , In a decision delivered at
St. Paul , knocked tlte foundation out ot its
detense in a liuriv. This the company
has commenced the old tactics and has tiled
to enjoin the state trom collecting the taxes
aeaiu. argument being heard before .Iustico
Miller at St. Louis last week. It is safe to
say that the company will get no moro sttis-
faction iroui the second round than It did
Mom the lirst. It is not adding to its popu-
l.uity any by this persistent attempt to es
cape paying Its just taxes.
The papers aie quoting with much ap
proval the letter ot bishop William Stevens
Perry , of Davenport , who piesides over the
Iowa diocese ot the Protestant Episcopal
church. Bishop Pern1 , who is one ot the
most scholarly and learned of American
divines , was accorded the high honor ol an
invitation topreach a meuioiial sermon In
Westminster Abbey this summer. He dls-
chaiged the trust to the evident delight ol
the Londoners , but a report of his sermon
represented him as rewriting American hls-
toiy to please his English heaters. Ho was
quoted as having referred to thn American
"lebels " ami Lord Howe's
patriots as , army
as the "loyal forces. " Tim bishop was im
mediately proclaimed as an Aiiizlo-maniai
and many unkind and uncharitable things
vveie said about him. As soon as he
learned ot these mistatements he wrote a
letter of explanation or coirection to thu
offending paper that started the vvronu re
port and expressed In the most positive lan-
mnge his lieaity sympathy with the so-called
"rebels" ot th < revolution and the principles
lor which they fought. He declined that he
was an heieditary member of the order ol
the Cincinnati and that Ills ancestor.- , fought
side by side with the patriots at Hunker Hill ,
Lexington and other battles of the war , anil
that lie had no desire now to disavow theli
American principles or leave the American
ciiuicli. The latter allusion is to the cai
that had been given him to become tin
bishop of N'ova beotla , but ho has positively
declined the election to that ollice. These
explanations leave Jli-shop Perry all riglii
witli his American tiiendstpnd admirers
of whom then ; are many , and make him stil
mote populai in the west.

ence of the Bir.l : Ths ) Is one ot the great
stock shipping points In the Black Hills
country , and Is situated on theilnoof the
Fremont , Elkhorn t Missouri Vallot rail
road , lorty-two miles north of Chad-
on and sixty-two miles south of
Hapld City , and Is surrounded by
good fanning land , On account of its mild
winters and ttio light ( all of snow It Is called
the best stock raising country in the noith-
west. It is also noted for Its pure soft vvntoJ ,
which can be found by digging anywhere
Irom five to thirty feet. The soil is a rich
sandy loam. There were 27,000 head of
stock shipped from fhis point last v CAT , and
we expect to exceed that amount this sea
son. Wo have shipped this jcar , up to
date , about 12,000 head. The freight charges
on them will not bo far trom S" > 7iXX ) In
fact , just on one day last week they
amounted to over SO,400.
Smlthwicks is situated about nine miles
east of the great and wonderful sandstone
limrrios ot Fall Ulver county. Dak. These
vast mountains of sand will , In thu near fu
ture , be a source of great vvoilth to the county
uul give employment to huudtcds of men
the year round , The quairies are only six
miles trom the main line ot the lallroad and
aside-track can bo constructed very cheaply
Into the canon where the quarry is situated ,
tor them will bo very little grading to bo
done. Fall Hlver and Duster counties are
the only places in the world whole
variegated sand rock Ins ever been dlseov-
i rc't up to the piesent tlmo. But in the
Odell mining district , it Is found in such
vast quantities that there will bo enough to
supply Omahii and the markets of the east
foi } ears to come w Ith the finest looking and
best building stone ever put on thn market.
It is a well known tact that sandstone Is the
only stony or building material that can be
put into a wall that will stand hre. For
beauty the variegated rock has no equal and
tor hue quality It cannot be surpassed. It Is
found In a greit variety of colors , Including
red , white , bmwti , blue , vellow and pink.
The variegated or clouded rock lias as line an
appearance in a building as marble , for it
dres es upas smooth ana Is ot such finegrain
and finish that evou smart people take It to
bo marble at lust glance. Another thing to
bo taken Into consideration is the cheapness
with which this rock can bo quarried and
drossud and also the nearness to Omaha and
the market of the whole western country , or
what could be more properly called , "homo
maikets , " and without doubt largo quantities
of it vv 111 bo sent to Chicago and other lame
eastern cities. The line quality and beauty
ot tlm variegated and clouded rock will maito
a great demand for It for trimmings for large
buildings. At the architect and bulldeis'
convention held In Chicago a year ago ,
this stone was out to all possible
tests and pronounced to bo A No. 1 building
stone. There have been two or three
companies organl/ed to work the quarries
and one lias secured a water potvei right
where they purpose building a mill where
they vv 111 cut and drc s the stone all ready to
put in the wall , theieby making a great sav
ing in freight. As soon as this company
gets the necessary machinery they will be
teady to furnish building stone in large or
small quantities ot any sUe , shape or color.
They arc now imiklniz arrangements with
the railroad for putting in the necessary
tiack so as to reach their quarry , and prob
ably within the next twelve months Fall
Kiver county sandiock and building stone
w ill bo In demand all over the country and vv 111
be shipped to all parts of It , the larirest pait
to Omaha.
