to tiio BBK ] Considerable ) feeling was
shown in a meeting of tbo republican com
mittee yesterday , ami Hovoiul members of it
nro not willing to liccopt the selection of Chicago
cage very gracefully. One member of tbo
committee , who voted for Cincinnati , declares
that the Hl.iino crowd ruled everything and
manipulated Chicago in the interest of their
favorite candidate. To the 13KB correspond
ent ho said : ,
"These men would rather lose with Hluino
than win. with uny other candidate. Chicago
was selected through fraud. If lilainu Is
nomhi.itcel und his campaign is run by the
clique that controlled nffairs yesterday , they
will but put up linger boards pointing the
way to defeat. Throe colored members of
the committee und two white carpetbaggers
from the south were improperly Influenced to
vote for Chicago. If money had not been
used Chicago would not have been selected ,
Cincinnutl or Omaha would have won. Hut
Cincinnati or Omaha , especially the former ,
would have been favorable ) to Sherman. "
It is stutcd upon the best authority that a
member of thu committee was heard to
charge 'ElUiiis to his face ) with bavin hmiRfit
certain colored members of inc committee
und when "KlUuir icicriiuil astonishment , the

the UvniiRcllunl Alliance.
WASHINGTON , Doe. 0. At the opening con
ference of the. Evangelical alliance this
morning Hov. Dr. Storrs' paper * on the
"Necessity of Co-oportitlon in Christian
Works , " was read by Uov. Dr. Chnmborlaui ,
of Hrooklyn , Dr. Storra beinj ; III. The paper
alludes to the perils arising from tliu misuse
of wealth , Illiteracy and the estrangement of
many from the church. In the course of his
pn | > er Dr. Storrs says : "The great tWng
needed Ls to gather u'p and concentrate our
power. Hlshop Harris , of Michigan , said it
would be madness to remain divided In this
hour of danger. We must bo o < iuUlly op
posed to imperialism nnd social
ism. The bible , the SnbbaHi , nnd
liberty of conscience must bo de
fended , with Christ us our leader Indeed ,
but with our own active co operation as well ,
or wo shall go the way Xf. other nations
wlNMd early history has boon fife. , and
promising. The kind of co-operation wo
advocate Is not political. The church and
state must be separate. Our common school
system U Iho peculiar product of our Anglo-
Saxon chtlstlnnlty , nnd wo must stmid for it
ngulnst the very strong nnd dangerous attack
of ultramoiitnnlsm , which has taken advan
tage of our divisions to banish thu blbli ) from
It und then , with savage Inconsistency , attack
it us godless. Hut wo must KO deeper. We
must seek not only to keep this or that
external Institution. Wo must strike at the
root of sin In the heart. Co-operation
In promoting vital , intense , nenons ) piety is
the one great need. In the "West"1 In" small
towns several churches , by their competi
tion , afford a spectacle to make devils laugh
and angels weep , mid In oitlc.s the need of
union is equally great. Our divisions have
ini ) > ovcrlshcd our love for man , as ultra-
monianlsm often foils' to mjnister to the
want it cicntcs and fosters , and loaves It to
us Piotestants to feed and clothe. The
church makes n magnificent and Imposing
show of caring for the poor but It Is hollow
and unreal. Wo have been miserably nnd
hellishly divided nnd hence our weakness. "
Hov. Dr. Glnden , of Columbus. O. , said
unity in evangelistic labor is good if wo don't
break up the allegiance of individuals to a
pnrtlrnlnr church. A man converted In n
church will , on nn average , do M much ns
three converted in u rink. A thing much
less demonstrative is better. The best pait
of towns und cities have twice ns ninny
churches as are neededthe poorer far too
few. So of competition between many seotn
in new towns. "We must , " said Dr. Gladcn.
"frankly admit the essential equality of nil
Christian churches. Wo must drop this com
petition of the Kilkenny fair s6rt. We must
recognize thu peiil to our industries ; to Iho
govulnniont. If the present \\idespiuad dis
content develops into anarchism , wo must
throttle that by law , but \\o must use pre
vention to keep it from coming to that. The
unreasonable demands by woiklngmcn must ,
as far as possible , bo modllied by reason and
love , and this only the church c. < n ilo sucess -
fully. Churches must repent of their aban
donment of the poor districts and then go
und do woiks meet for repentance. They
should colonize with seine of their best fam

ins been represented by special telegrams
rom Ccdtir Hnpids , la , , n.s having been nr-
ested in company with his brother , Carl
Owen , nnd Heib J. Ellfott , of Marlon , la. , on
ho cliargo of sending through the mails
ibclous circulars affecting the character of
jcorge U. Owen , of the > latter place. Tlio
Owens are cousins , and 'for years a family
'cud has existed between them. At the last
election George 13. Owen was a candidate for
county treasuier of Linn , county , and a few
du\s bofoic election thei ] > eoplu of Marion
md Cedar Rapids recelvKl through the mails
Iiculms bcming a striking mul uccurulu
ikencss of Owens , toguUicr with nn miony-
nous communication that was printed In the
Cellar Uaids ; Ifnj-abl'can some time ago At
tached to this reading matter was a postscript
sajmg , "Tliepictuieyouiseu befoio > ou Is
tlir man whom this matter rcfei.s to" The
document recited the evil misdoings
of the candidate , and created
the most intenseexcitement. . Mr.
Owen stamped the charges us false , and cm-
[ iloied two of Pinkei ton's most trusted
detectives to run down the authors of tlio
scandal. The ollkcrs found out that the en
graving and printing was done in Omaha ,
nnd the two sleuths gave considerable of
their attention to Druggist Owen of this
city. They went back to Cedar Hapids nnd
made bold to say that JJr. Owen had ordered
the engraving mid printing. Doubtless these
assertions gave rise to thu false repoits sent
out of the arrest of the Messrs. Owen nnd
? . ! r. E'liott. '
Lust night n HIT. repoiter called nt the
drug store and found Luther Owen placidly
in the disc harge ol his duties.
"If I have been arrested I do not know it , "
ho l.iughlnirlv said , adding "neither 1ms my
biothur nor Elliott been taken into custody
as has been represented in some of thu nuws-
j.peis : : *
Mr. Owen then stated that ho had been In
receipt of two summons from Cedar Hapids
to appear before the United States cquitas a
witness against Elliott , but had paid no at
tention to them , for Elliott was in the city
up to i esterduy morning , when ho left for
Mm ion. While Mr. Owen was telling this a
messenger boy m rived at tlio store with a
telegram from Elliott , who last night stopped
oh" at Slater , la , on business.
Mr. Oxvcn denies all knowledge of the
ougin of the circular , and says that the first
he knew of its existcnco was the icccipt of
one through the mulls from his brother.

lohtiKon With Dlspntoli.
For n few mlnutca last evening there was
nn exciting scene ut the Mlllard hotel.
Captain Napoleon H. Ilutchur and John
Johnson , U\o well known real estate men of
this city , hnd nn impromptu battle at that
hostelry w hlch resulted In n decisive victory
for the namesake of the illustrious Hoim-
pattc. Hoth men , It Is s , ld , were slightly In-
toxlcnted , nnd Johnson seemed to bo In
rather n cpmbattve Jiiood. At the top of the
first flight of stairs the two men met by
chance , when Johnson took umbrage at some
remark made by the captain nnd struck him
In the face. After regoveilng from his sur
prise , Hatcher gatheied together his latent
powers mul sailed Into Johnson like n cyclone.
Ho struck and pounded him until ho cried
lustily for help , nnd only ended the punishment -
ment when ho had knocked him ngalnst u
window , shivering It to pieces , and then
hesitated n moment , as though contemplating
seiidlnpr Johnson after the falling fragments.
The sound of the conflict , the noise of the
fall und the clatter of broken
glass produced the profoundest ex
citement mid confusion , waiters
nnd guests cnmo rushing from the dining
room and loungers in the rotunda jumped
fiom their seats thinking some terrible acci
dent had happened in the elevator. Thu
friends' of Johnson carried him down the
.stairs nnd hurried him away for repairs. Ho
was In a sorry plight. His right cheek was
laid open and ho had several cuts on the back
of his head where he had struclc the gloss.
His clothes wore also somewhat damaged.
The captain , with thu exception of n couple of
bruised fists , was uninjured , mid walked
nwuy with a look uf resignation as though ho
hnd performed n faithful service for his
