liowcd that the recclpls were less Ihan for
lie previous year , and $15,000 less than the
Ixpendlturcs. which were $1,000. ! ) ) It stated
Iir.l the chief agency In the education of
lie colored race was Blddle university , with
[ faculty of fifteen professors , ten of whom
lore colored , and 2i ; pupils last year.
I'rho ' committee recommended a revision of
ho assignment of the church funds among
! io several boards , vVth a view to incroas-
lig the amount to bo given to the frccdmcn.
ho assembly was asked to approve the
> ard's request for $250,000 for the work ;
_ .so to approve measures to bo taken for
liislng100,000 for Biddle university.
Kov. Mr. Savapo ( ( colored ) of Capo Fear
Iresbytery described the worlc of the board
Itnonir " the people of his race , which he said
lould"not bo told or comprehended In a re-
l'6rt upon the subject. Proportionately , as
nany colored people in the south went Into
ho Presbyterian church as i white people
Event Into It In the north. The colored people
ple , ho said , had plenty of grit , some grace ,
Irat to make their churches truly effective
they needed greenbacks , and these they
asked from the church.
The recommendations of the committee
wore adopted.
Moderator Craig then announced the re
maining committees relating to the records
of the synods , prefacing them -With llio
statement that by diligent attention to the
total membership of the body , ho had been
enabled to give every commissioner present
a'Place on a committee. [ Laughter. ] The

Another outbreak on the Brlcgs case oo-
mrrcrt just before the morning adjournment.
Or. Young , chairman of the committee on
jllls and overtures , turned to the platform
md stated that two overtures from the
liresbytories of Chicago and Detroit , which
710 said had been described by Mr. Johnson
| nd Elmer Cntehingas bearing directly upon
Luo Brlggs case , bad been found , upon ex-
imimulon , to contain no reference whatever
p any special case llKcly to come before the
bsembly , but referred wholly to proposed
linngcs In the standards of the church. He
[ loroforo recommended that the former
commendation of the committee bo ad-
1'ircd to and the two overtures sent to the
pmmiltco on church policy.
] Dr. Charles L. Thompson of Now York
[ ated , with great earnestness , that a paper
light bo designed for a special committee , ,
ipugh on its face It did not say so. Two of
jo provisions of the overtures from the
| : { eago presbytery referred manifestly to
F'i judicial case now before the assembly ,
( view In which ho was sustained by the
Jombnrs of the presbytery which brought
| io overtures to this house. The intention
that presbytery was that It should bear
lion the judicial case before the house.
IDr. Warlleld of Lafayette Seminary took
lip ground that the assembly could not
fTord to waste time putting an overt uro
lirough a circuitous route in order to carry
lit what a presbytery might possibly liavo
litendcd , but what it did not roprcsenl in
] ts overture.
Dr. Pugh offlloomlngton declared that
ho assembly was not made up ot mind
eadors and could not be expected to read
vhat was going on the minds of the Chicago
iresbytcry when it prepared its overtures ,
'ho assembly , ho said , was bound by the
Grins of the Instrument and ho defied oven ,
. Philadelphia lawyer to find in it ono cx-
ircsslon that would properly send it to the
udiclal committee.
Uov. A , N , Holltlcld of Now Jersey moved
hnt cophs of the overtures be sent to the
udlchil committee for Investigation , and
tiat the originals bo sent to the conuiittoo policy ,
llo Win from XIMV York.
Everybody wanted a vote on the amend-
lent , and when Dr. Charles H. Bootli of
< ow York arose ho was mot wltli a dcafcn-
ng. demand for the question. The dis-
Ingulshca divine calmly waived aside the
emenstrhtlon and , when It had quieted
town , shouted ; "if you were to call for the
ucslton for an hour you could not put mo
own ; I nin from Now York. " Briefly then
o staled thai he was opposed to the amend-
ncnt , for the reason that It introduced the
ilement of popular clnmur into the proceed-
ngs of a deliberative body.
After further discussion , the amendment
vvaa lost , and the overtures wore gent to the
-omnilttco on church policy by a vote that
met with practically no opposition from the
Brlgtra men.
A recess was taken at noon , during which ,
tlmo the commissioners proceeded In a bodv
to the state , war and navy buildings , and
ivcru thcro photographed In a group.
At the afternoon session the report of the
fomiiilttco on Sabbath observance coming up
for consideration , President Warflcld of
Lafayette college proposed an additional rec
ommendation that the third Sunday In Juno
DO sot apart as a day wnon sermons shall
w preache-1 In all the churches and prayers
offered In behalf of the effort to keep the
gates of the World's fair closed ,
Uov. Mr. McCauley of Dayton , O. , offered
another addition , to-wlti Thai in case the
tiunday dosing rule bo violated , the oxhlbli
of llio Presbyterian church bo removed , The
several recommendations , together with
Ihoso of Messrs. Warflcld and McCauley ,
\vcra considered , scrlnlum , nnd adopted ,
< In the progress of the discussion Itcv. W.
P , Jrromo of Ponttae , Mich. , opposed the rn-
tnoTiil of the Prcxbytorlan exhibit from the
"World1. fair In case the Sunday law is via-
'Istcd. ' lie ppoi a It for the reason thai If
1 tt filr TT I kepi opan or. S'lndiy ' there was
all Iho moro reason why Iho exhibit should
bo where the people could see something
good. Mr. Jerome was overwhelmingly In
the minority , the amendment favoring the
withdrawal of tha exhibit being carried by a
practically unanimous vote.
The reiwrt of the committee on education
was presented by Rev. Thomas D. ISwIng of
Coming , la. It commended the work of the
board and asked Iho assembly lo give il
JIBjOOO for Iho work of nexl year.
Mmlo n Ooml Showing.
Rev. D. W. Poor , Iho venerable corresponding
spending sccrclary of Ihe bo.ird , detailed
the workings of the board to the assembly.
The mosl satisfactory feature was that Iho
board is comparatively out of debt , the
amount having been reduced from $7,000 to
tOOO. Dr. Poor said that In the past six
years the Presbyterian denomination had
been ' compelled to draw on other denomina
tions for 550 ministers to do Its work. The
appeal for money to carry on the work of
educating young men for Iho ministry was
supplemented by President Warflold of Lafayette -
fayetto college , who denounced as a shame
and a reproach the attlludo of the church
toward Its young men who desire to prepare
for Its ministry and have nol the funds
themselves to secure an education , The
cause of the dccllno In the Presbyterian
church , ho said , lay In the decline of piety in
the home ,
KIdcr Ua vis Jacks of Monterey , Cal. . closed
the discussion with the suggestion that ho
would glvo $100 towards wiping out the $000
debt of the board still remaining [ applause ]
and that If a suitable man were secured to
talk money out of men's pockets for the ed-
ucallon of young men , Instead of $2,000 a
year from Captain Jacks , the cause might
get from $25,000 to $40,000 and that ho would
pay $10,000 a year lo wards * pay Ing Iho right
man. [ Moro applause. ]
The recommendations of the committee
were adopted.
Rev. Mr. Reed of the North China pres
bytery presented the following resolutions , ,
which were referred lo llio committee on
Chinese exclusion act :
Hesolvcd , That this assembly desires to
place on record the expression of Its deep
gratitude for tbo favor extended to our mis

DBNVEII , Colo. , May 22. The First Baptist
church was today the scene of the opening
exercises of llio Baptist national anniversa
ries , which will continue throughout the
week. It was decorated with plants and
shrubs and flowers , but one particular
shrub , when Its character was learned by
the delegates , attracted moro attention than
all others. And well It should , for from just
such a diminutive tree , which is known lo
grow only in the Holy Land and in Arizona ,
was the crown of thorns the Savior wore on
the cross gathered. Then around about the
walls were banners bearing the names of the
different countries where Baptist doctrines
have taken root.
Mrs. J. N. Grouse , president of the
Woman's Homo Baptist Mission society ,
opened the sixteenth annual meeting in an
exceedingly short speech , inwhich she
most briefly stated the object of the meeting
to learn what was being done , and immed
iately called upon Mrs. F. T. Smith of Colorado
rado , the Jlrsl vice president , for her exper
Mrs. Churchill of Wyoming told of llio
establishment of missions fur remote from
railroads. Mrs. Nesbitt of Iowa , Miss Moore
of Arkansas , Mrs. W. K. Taylor of New
York , all vice presidents , also spoke of their
work. The most Interesting experience was
thai of Mrs. W. M. Isaacs , president of llio
Baptist Union of few York City.
The benediction at the close of the morn
ing hour was pronounced by Dr. George C.
Lorltncr of Boston.
The address of welcome in the afternoon
was delivered by Mrs. F. T. Smith of Colorado
rado , and was summed up in the quotation of
what Cornelius said to Peter : "Thou hast
done well that thou art come. " This was
responded to by the president im the usual
complimentary style , after which caino the

A love feast closed the afternoon session.
There was genuine enthusiasm at the
evening session. Men and women clapped
their hands and quite a number of them
raised to thoh-feot nnd cheered. Dr. I-orl-
mer of Boston caused it all by saying :
"Natlonalizo'bur people. Wo want no hybrid
rnco In tills fair land. Wo want no English
nor Irish , no French nor Dutch. Wo want
.Americans , Our women can do this alone , "
He was speaking on the subject of the train
ing school at Chicago ,
Mrs. M. A. Ehlcrs of Hnlelgb , N. C. , had
preceded the doctor in a talk on "Training
Colored Women. " Thu speaker attempted
to convince her hearers thai there was no
such thing as color among these who ac
cepted her for her faith , but that all were
made white by the blood of Calvary.

Indians , and Miss Miller , a missionary In the

Its nations sco nnd admire. The Invitation
has not yet been formally given out , as the

At that tlmo Nebraska will shine forth re

been completed , but it will Includoaddrcsscs

quested to participate. Additional eclat to
Iho exercises will be Ion I by Colonel \V. F.
Cody , whoso entire aggregation of mounted
warriors , representing every nalloa upon the
face of the earth , will turn out In a great
parade. Though the formal opening is still
over two weeks away , the doors of the state
building are open and the finishing touches
to the interior decoration are now being ap
plied. The result , all things considered , Is a
Not a Nebraskan who has' visited the
building but has emphasized tno assertion
that the fS5,000 appropriation has been well
spent. It is an undlsputablo fact. The
state building , the agriculture exhibit and
the horticulture are monuments to the ef
forts of the commissioner general and the
Women's auxiliary , notably Mrs. Brlggs of
Omaha and Mrs. McDonald of North Platto.
Wisconsin with $1(55,000 ( and other states
with much larger appropriations than Ne
braska have invested in the Colombian expo
sition , present a showing not a bit more nt-
Iraclivo. The whole state , as evidenced by
a hasty glance in the state house , has taken
a lively and a substantial Interest In the
representation of the state's natural re
sources. The plain yet handsome Corinthian
architecture of the building which stands fac
ing the main avenue upon which arc located
the various states , a short distance from the
Fifty-eighth street entrance , appeals to the
discerning eye of the passer-by. There are
eight rooms , four on each floor. On the
ground the main room , reading room , writ
ing room and the commissioner's ofllecou ;
the second floor another largo exhibit hall , a
smoking room , ladles' parlor and private
room for the use of the board.

The visitor U instantly atlractod by the
display as he enters the structure between
the two largo stnlT-covored pillars. Corn
corn on the walls , corn on the ceiling , corn
everywhere. Corn pictures , tables ; every
design of the cereal that has triven
Nebraska name across the broad expanse of
the continent yea , and across the seas , too.
The other grains that spring unbounded
from Nebraska soil are there. It is a
gorgeous panorama of natural colors
the hues of the rainbow are
nearly all these. There are forty cabinets
nnd 1,120 Jars of cereals attractively ar
ranged about the floor. Every county. Is rep
resented. The decorative effect is pretty in
the oxtromo. Gage county furnishes a
handsome panel which is hung here a dia
gram of the comity , showing the townships
in different colors , the towns and villages ,
the rivers and railroads all done in corn
and seeds , nothing else. The reading room
opens off the exhibition hall. It is roomy
and commodious. The decoration is notable
for a handsome hand-painted frieze , done
by the ladies of Beatrice. Adjoining is the
omco proper or writing room , and next to
that the commissioner's prettily furnished
Upstairs thcro are a 100 pretty things to
catch the eye. Art and nature are here
combined and the effect Is ploa&ing. The
idea is carried throughout. An Omaha
artist has caught it beautifully In
a bit of painting that represents
a brace of ducks hung upon the bain door.
The game is none to perfection. As you
stand away ten or llftecn feet you would
swear tlio frame of that barn door and those
hinges could never have been done moro
true to nature. Look closer and you will
find It Is nature tlio barn door frame Is
wood. The artist has painted the door Itself
so truly that the color cannot bo distin
guished except by close scrutiny. Hero
again is corn given the most exquisite exhi
bition. Thcro Is a massive table , all sur-
faced with corn a work of art. Tlio surface
Is glass , and beneath it in has relief , done
with corn , wheat and other cereals , a faith
ful and accurate reproduction of the state
seal with the motto , ' 'Equality Before the
Law , " engraved on the glass surface.
The contribution" is from Cuining
county. There Is also a plain table
representing Webster county with colors
of corn for the various townships ,
streams and railroads. Dawson county con
tributes a huge panel of "Old Glory , " made
of red , white and bine corn. On the walls
are hung numerous paintings pastorals and
studies in floriculture all the work of Ne
braska artists , Fremont has sent a hnnd-
some sunflower panel and clock , Thcro is a
massive carved oak table from Norfolk , the
design representing the sugar haul industry.

The southwest Is called ' 'Cody's corner , "
In the space sol apart for him "Buffalo Bill"
will spread himself. Ho has several stuffed
buffaloes of magnificent proportions , a crane
measuring six feet from tip to tip nnd an
Indiairtcpco. In this latter , which is com
pletely furnished in the aboriginal style ,
Colonel Cody will make a display of n score
or moro of the trophies of several Indian
wars , collected during his scouting exploits.
There will bo everything from a string of
glass beads to the gory scalp of a hated
paleface. This is the show that will do as
much toward attracting the visitor us any
thing clso lu the building.
Thuro are scores moro of displays about
the largo room In the second story. Ttic

plays a historlo banner of linen woven by
Pennsylvania women a century since. The
wood for the frame was taken from old Fort

The banner was designed and executed by

Attorneys'1 for the Impoachotl State Officials
Are Doing Double Work.
They < Vo In Drtnll Their Version of thft
Cell Ultimo Contract , the Dent
Dorcnn mill the Junket ot
the Iloitril.
LINCOLNNob. . , May 2. . [ Special toTnri
Bni : . ] The attorneys who lire defending thd
Impeached state o.llelab have been conduct *
Ing two trials over since the ease was called
In the supreme court. They liavo not only
Ostensibly defended the officials from tha
charges of criminal neglect of duly , but they
have vigorously defended men like John
Dofean , Oorham Belts , Dan Lauer and W.
1) . . Sowcll , all of whom have Iwlco been in
dicted by Ihe Lancaster county grand Jury
for their crimes against the state. The
manner in which this double defense ha
been carried on Is tantamount to nji admis
sion of culpability upon the part of the
officials now on trial. In order to clear
themselves from the charges of carelessness
and neglect of ofllclal duty , they have sought
tib prove that the cell house was honestly
built and equal In construction to the best
buildings of any character In Omaha j tbn
W. II. Dorgan Is ono of the most competent
builders In the state , the e < iual ot the men
who have erected such buildings ns tha
Omaha city hall ; that every pound of coal
charged to the state by John Dorgan and
Oorham Betls was actually delivered ami
consumed at the asylum ; thai every sack of
flour charged to Iho state by W. D. Sowell
was actually delivered and used.
In Ihclrzual to defend their clients the attorneys -
tornoys have attempted to prove too much.
The load they have assumed to carry Is too
great a burden for them. The people of Ne
braska will not bo expected to endorse their
efforts to not only shield their own cllenlrt
but ; also < o prevent the punishment of the
dishonest contractors who have twice been
indicted. 1
The fourth week of the trial Is now on ,
with a possibility that the end Is In sight.
The indications now are that tno re
spondents will finish the introduction of tes
timony some tlmo during tomorrow aftei'i
noon , after which the state will have several
witnesses to loitlfy in rebuttal. This tesli-
mony will consume but a short tinio , after
which the arguments will begin. It Is stateil
tonight thai tomorrow all of the testimony
will bo in , and that Judge Doano of Omami
will conclude the opening speech for the
Seerotnry Alien Gooa On.
At 2 o'clock this afternoon when the court
convened .Toliu C. Allen , secretary of state ,
was called to the witness stand to bo Int/ijK- '
rogatcd. In response to a question by John
L. Wobstcr , ho answered that during IS'Jl
.llio Board of Public Lands and Buildings
disbursed , fibout 5225,000 in llio construction
of new state buildings.
"Was it possible to have constructed tin }
cell house without employing a superinten
dent ! "
"No , sir ; the members could not. ) '
"How did yon' happen lo Vinploy W. H.
Dorran to superintend the construction ol
the building ! "
"He was recommended as a competent
'man ana ono who was familiar with prison
labor : ho was instructed to build a good ,
building , similar to the west wing ; wo told
him to employ J. W. Tyler to make the
plans and told him wo wanted a good build-
imr. "
"How did you come to advance him the
estimates ? "
"Ho anpcarcd before us In Juno with a
voucher showing that ho had expended
? G,100 for labor and material ; wo thought
that ho needed the money. "
"Had you ever heard anything against
Dorgan whicn would have led you to thinls
lhal ho was not an honest man ? "
' Nothing ; not a word. "
"When you voted In favor of allowing the
Dorgan estimates did you net In good faith ( "
Mr. Lambertson objected.
The court ruled that the question could bo
answered with the understanding that its
mnterlalltv would bo considered later.
"I did , " answered the witness.
"Was this course of allowing estimates
pursued in other states ? "
"I had a general knowledge that such a
course was pursued. "
"Why did Dorgan resign , and why was
Hopkins appointed ? "
"Dorgan succeeded to the prison contract ,
and when \vo found a suitable person wo ap
pointed him as a successor. "
Why Settlement \Vun Dolnyoil.
"Did the investigation at the asylum have
anything to do with delaying settlement
With Dorgan ? "
"The investigation took several weeks , .
and then llio lugislaluro came on , all of
which held oil the settlement. "
" ' bund "
"Was Dorgan's goodi"
' It was , and the amount was In excess of
any amount that ho over had In lib hand.
With reference to lhal oxpcndlturo of $500
It was thought that tlio cell house would bo
c'omplolcd early In 1892. Wo thought II ad
visable to put in the best class of cells , and
lo post ourselves wo toolc that trip , "
"Had you received any advices from Iho
buporliilciidcnt or tbo warden touching upon
tl.o advislbllLy of that trip ? "
"Tho contractor said lie was willing to
put in a moro modern cell ; no member of
the board had any knowledge of the char-
uetcr of the mortorn cells ; the board CH-
tlinntcd fT'OO as the COM of Ihe trip , and In
structed mo to get that amount. I gava the
atlornoy general and the commissioner § 150
each , and the warden $50. "
"How much did you expend for the ex
penses of HID warden i"
"About ? DO , and paid his hotel bills , "
"What did you do with the rest of the
money 1" , ,
"Paid my own expenses and was out of

"Have you ever bean reimbursed for that
expenditure ! "
"No , sir ; 1 have not , "
"Did you take steps to liavo plans of the
Improved cells forwarded to your" '
"Wo aid. Wo vlsitPil ihu Pauly Cell

"Did you act In good faith In expending

"I did. "
"You gave Kldor Howe flOO to pay his ex
