A Few ItcstlcsH Church Folks.
The First Baptist church has ever since its
organization been so unfortunate as to have
a small and rather discordant clement , who
have caused no little amount of trouble.
Much of the time this element has been kept
balanced and in subjection to the majority ,
who have been earnest nn $ Jjarmontous. A
few ycais npo by the uijlormnato conduct of
the Jh en iiiisTof , XUj > Vaiwas a general scatter
ing ailij tn"0 chUich cTrganizatlon was well
nigh j ned. Out of the wreck the present
y.nbtor , itov. Dr. Cooley , n wise leader , has
gathered up a goodly membership , and rally
ing n largo number of others , lias succeeded
in building up a strong , active and apparently
harmonious church. A few have begun
another agitation , in favor of some changed
and in order to get a full expression as to the
sentiment of the church , a meeting has been
held. The vote being taken on the retention
of the able pastor , it was decided by un over
whelming majority that hu should be re
tained. There wcro less than a dozen who
held a different view. Dr. Cooley has done
for this church what few other men could
have done , und the members seem to appie-

' "JMnnmvn Clark" Ann In Heard From.
Yesterday a quit claim deed was lllcd for
record by which frank Clark , who gained
such notoriety in connection with the Man-
nwa hotel , pretends to deed to ono K. D
Mills , of Atchlson , Kan. , all his interests in
the property. The deed is marked at the top ,
"Mantuva hotel propelty , " by which it up-
' . pears that Clark Intended to deed what
rights ho hod in the property , and tlmt M11U
supposed ho was pelting tliese rights. Tot
Bomo reason the deed contains n description
of lots in block 91 , whereas the hotel is In
block 80. This inny bo a mistake , and If so ft
needs to bo corrected before Mr. Clarke suc
ceeds in dcodintnvhut rights he may Imvo in
that property. It is understood that
Clftrk novcr claimed to have any
interest In the block desciibeU
in the deed , so It must bo some mistake.
The consideration is only f $ ' . > , from which it
appear * that Clark docs not consider his
equltlctt in tlio hotel property as very val
uable. It appeuis that Mills took the deed
in settlement of some claim against Clark ,
who Is no\v operating in Atchlson , nnd aftoi
ha deed ; wrote to parties hero td
take it on his hands. Ho will doubtless ho n
little surprised to learn that if Clark has any
rights to HID property ho has not deeded
thom in this instrument , hut has named lot :
in another block. Thu little transaction dooc

is understood tlut Clark's interest is noi

FEARFUL FALL OF I1TE HEN ,
Whllo Tearing Down The Roof of
the Old Catholic Church.
THE DEMOCRATIC DIFFERENCES.

A Fearful ( Fall ,
Yesterday startling accident occurred
during the progress of the work of tearing
down the old Catholic church. A gang of
men were on the roof tearing nway the old
rafters , when several of the timbers sud
denly gave way , falling with n terrible crash
Into the basement below , and hurling with
them four men * The distance was fully
thirty-five feet , nnd ns one of the chimneys
fell at the snmo time , it seemed almost n mir
acle thnt the men who went down In such n
tnnglcd crash of timbers and flying brick es
caped with no fatal injuries. The four who
were injured wcro Henry Slaughter , A.
J. Davis , Charles Adams nnd Uuck Poland.
They nil received cuts nnd bruises of
n painful nature , and were speedily being
cared for by Dr. Pinnoy , whoso omen was
fortunately right across the street. Slaughter
had a cut on the f iicc , near the eye , a scratcli
on the chin , nnd n painfully bruised hip , but
was nblo to wnlk nnd illd not consider his In
A. J. Davis had n bloody bruise on the
check , nnd Ills hip and back wcro quite sore ,
ho having been caught under some of the fall
ing timbers , and unable to get up until these
timbers wcro lifted from oil him. Ho was
able then to wnlk about. Charles Adams was
ono of the more seriously injured. The ex
tent of his hurts cannot bo determined for a
few days , ns he was apparently injured more
internally than externally. Ho was con
scious , though suffering grently , nnd was
taken to his homo on lo\\er Uroadway in a
carriage. Young Poland was also badly
hurt , his chest paining him greatly ,
rendering it dlfllcult for him to breath.
There appeared to bo no bones broken , and
It is hoped that In a few days ho may recover
John Rccch had n most fortunate escape ,
as he was with the other men , but when the
timbers fell carrying them down , ho clung to
the brick wall , and was not injured.
It seems that there was great carelessness
on the part of those who hud charge of the
tearing down of the old building. The sup
ports had been removed from under the roof ,
and the naked rafters were simply resting
on the walls with nothing to support them
from below , and nothing to prevent their
swaying or spreading out of place. The
work of taking down these timbers required
some skillful and experienced man , who
could direct the men carefully , and had such
been the case the accident would probably
have been avoided. As It was the escape
from fatal consequences was very fortunate.

That Democratic Split.
An nrticlo appeared in yesterday morn
ing's ' Republican to the effect that Robert
Huntington , the recently defeated candidate
for the ofllco of city clerk , who acted as tel
ler at the caucus in the First ward , had
"confessed" to counting Whatermnn in , nnd
Rudto out in thocold. . As it seemed emi
nently unrensonablo that a person should
confess such n thing even if guilty , a Ben
reporter called upon Mr. Huntington , nnd
asked if the statement was true. Ho
promptly characterized it as a "bare-faced
lie , unqualified by and maliciously false , " and
said the most that he had ever said in regard
to the matter was that he had worked harder
for Waterman's nomination than any ono
else in the First ward , and that ho thought
Waterman's action in afterward voting
against him in the city council most ungrate
ful. In regard o the report that the Young
Men's Democratic club is to bo reorganized
with Mr. Huntington as picsidcnt , that gen
tleman spoke as follows :
"I am nwaro that there is much dissatis
faction existing within the club over the
recent action of the council in particular , and
the general action of the leaders in general ,
but as far ns the brcakitiguu of this club and
the organizing of a new one is concerned , the
idea is simply preposterous. "
One of the leading "bolters" is Dan Car-
rigg , who expressed himself in this manner :
"I am sorry I was a democrat nt the last
election , but I won't be caught the snrriaf y
again. Some of us are disgusted vvitll the
way these cjd 'ringbo ' ; sinr6 3oing business -
ness nnd wo nre coin gout on a strike. Wo
have it all planned , nnd there arc just thir-
tQC'l Ci these fellows who are licking off the
cream now , who will bo slaughtered. Wo
won't have anything to do with them , and
they can't even attend ourmcctings when we
reorganise. You say there are flvo demo
crats in the council , but there are but two ,
ICephcr and Uollingcr. I tell you wo feel
soi'o towards AVatcrman and wo don't deny
it. I admire Weaver , oven If ho was against
us , for ho stood straight clear through , but
Waterman made a stand nhtt then sneaked
out , and wo have no use for him. This talk
about Howinan and his gang doing all the
work is wrong , for other folks do the work
nnd they got the benefit. If wo can't win an
election wo can throw it to the republicans. "
Mayor Rohrer was asked for his opinion in
the matter , and said : "Why , its the great
est lot of bosh I have heard in u long time.
They talk about having money to buy n news
paper und all such things , but I waht to sec
it before I bcliovo it. I don't bollovo they
can even make a little jingle. They will have
their little splurge , but I don't think they
will over attempt to make a split. "
