Senator Mandorson had n conference
with Secretary Carlisle and Supervising
Architect -O'Kourko this mornng In the
secretary's ' ofllco concerning the Omaha
public building. The senator said the
Interview was very satisfactory , and ho
thought thd building would bo constructed
of granite. The secretary and Mr. O'Hourko
promised to co over the estimate nfraln care
fully and sco If It is possible to construct the
building within Ihollncs of the old proposals
nnd with the appropriation already made.
Senator Manderson Is now satisfied
that bids will bo rcadvcrtiscd for cover
ing different classes of materials , as the
secretary and supervising architect are de
sirous of leaving no ground for the charge of
favoritism against the department In its
dealings with the promoters of different
building materials.
Senator Manderson saw Senator Voorhecs

hus caused much of the trouble by cham

Supervising Architect O'Rourke said this

secretary loft tonight on a visit to Senator
Gibson of Maryland. Ho will return cany
next week. Mr. O'Uourko was busy this
afternoon getting the papers regarding the
Omaha building to lay before the secretary
Immediately on his return.
Senator Manderson Is as unyieldlntr as
over in his demand for a granite building ,
but ho will probably preserve his ammuni
tion until the now bids are submitted and
opened , and then bring proof to bear on the
secretary of the treasury to show that gran
ite Is the only available material for the
Omaha building.
Supervising Architect O'Rourko said to
THE BUG correspondent late this afternoon
that the whole trouble and delay over the
Omaha building grew out of the fact that
the original proposals called for granite only ,
and Mr. O'Hourke said that ho thought the
point was well talcen. The original pro
posals were submitted by Supervising Archi
tect Edbroo'.te. When Mr. O'Hourke's at
tention was called to the statement of Sen
ator Manderson yesterday that if ? T > 0,000
extra were nceuled to complete the building
in granite , according to the proposals
already submitted , it could bo secured
through a new appropriation , ho replied :
"That is true , perhaps , but It must bo re
membered that the law will not permit us to
award a contract for an amount which ex
ceeds the appropriation. "

this : Information coming from sllvc
sources make It a safe prediction that then
will bo comparatively little trouble to pass i
bill through the house to repeal the Shcrmai
silver law soon after congress meets. Hov
the thing will stand In the senate is anothc
story , but it will probably bo found that th
finance committee , at the head of which i
Senator Voorhces , who has been regarded a
strongly favoring silver , will have a majorit ;
for the repeal of the present law. 1
appears that n number of members of th
house who voted against any action durliij
the last congress have seen a light since , am
they expect to vote the other way when the ,
got at work again. The reason given b ,
some of those who will drop from the rank
of the radical silver men is that In the ligh
of the present financial situation of "the !
people , " without yielding their conviction
on the silver question , are willing that th
Sherman law should bo repealed nt once
leaving the question of future coinage o
silver open. How fur this Is the result c
Judicious distribution or withholding of pal

ferenco , but it Is certain that Mr , Clovclan

Mr. Ralph K. Gaylord of this city has mys
teriously disappeared. On the 10th of May
ho loft Omaha for El Pnso , Tex. , to meet
his mother , Mrs. Hcubon Gaylord , and to
accompany her homo. At Kansas City , May
17 , Mr. Gaylord wrote a letter to his wife ,
which is the last word received from him.
Mr. Gaylord stated tluvt ho was not feeling
well ; that his head continued to trouble him.
As soon as his friends hero learned that ho
did not reach El Paso nt the appointed tliiic
they became alarmed. His mother was com
municated with , and nt once returned to
Omaha. Unremitting search during the past
ten days has failed to discover any trace of
him. Judge W. C. Ivcs and Mr. George
Patterson went to Kansas City in tlie hope
that they might llnd the missing man In ono
of the hospitals there. They followed every
clew that mightlead to his whereabouts.
Mr. Gaylord is Well known in business
and social circles' . Ho has resided In
Omaluk over thirty years and enjoys the
confidence of the best people hero. About
ten years ago ho suffered a violent attack of
brain fever from which he never fully re
covered. At the time ho was In ttio law
business , but the effects of his illness were
such that ho was compelled to abandon the
practice. About two months ago ho took a
brief outing at the lakes near Omaha and
contracted a severe cold , which brought on
an attack of the grip. Since then ho has
repeatedly complained that his head troubled
him badly. To one of his associates in the
oftlce ho said a few days before ho left that
ono side of his head felt numb and heavy and
that ho was "doing his thinking in ono side
of his head only. "
Mr. Gaylord's-frlonds can'account for his
stra'ngo disappearance ottly on the theory of
mental collapse , yet they are not without
hope that tidlnes of his whereabouts may
yet bo received. Mrs. Gaylord Is prostrated.
The nipntal strain of the past ten days has
been terrible and made it necessary for her
physician to deny all visitors to her.
World's Fair flutes Will lie Opened > cxt
Sunday us Usual.
CIIICAOO , III. , Juno 2. Just before the fed
eral court adjourned today in the World's
fair Sunday closing suit , United
States Attorney Mllcfirist asked that
in the absence of a permanent
decision a restraining order bo issued
for next Sunday. This was refused.
Judge Woods , speaking for the court , said nc
intimation could bo given as to when a dC'
cision might bo expected.
On behalf of the fair it was argued that II
this court should grant the prayer of the
petitioners for an order closing the gates oc
Sunday , the management would have tc
either disobey that order or the order of the
state court holding that the park , being foi
the recreation and enjoyment of the people ,
they could not bo kept out on any day of the
week , The court asked If the logic of this
was that no entrance fee could bo charged ,
The attorney for the fair said no. because ol
the large amount of money spent In building
the improvements the fair directory was entitled
titled to charge a foe. This had already beei
decided in effect.
Attorney .Tamed L. High , for the govern
ment , produced n report of the dculcatlor
exercises of the exposition and read a per
lion of President ; Hlgginootham's address
in which ho formally transferred the enter
prise to the national commission. This Mr
High held , placed the entire exposition it
the hands of the government and investei
the federal representatives with full contro
of the fair.
"What do you think Mayor Htrrlsoi
meant when } io tendered Chicago' :
distinguished guqsts the freedom of tin
city ? " asked Judirp Jenkins , referring to tin
courtesy extended to the duke of Veragua
The question caused a ripple of laughter
which the court crier had to rebuke wltl
his gavel.
'Well , " answered Mr. High , who wa
taken aback at the query , "of course , that 1
for your honors to decide. "
There Is much speculation tonight , no
that the case Is finally In the judges' hand
for a decision , ns to when the decision wi !
bo rendered , Not a few expect tnat the ill
clslon will bo announced tomorrow , but suci
quicl : action is not generally looked for.

Tlio Iiongucr * I'roout.
From the lips of several hundred earnest
Epworth leaguers assembled In the Hans-
coin Park Methodist church yesterday morn
ing at 0 o'clock thcro floated the melodious
notes of "My Jesus , I Love Thee , " and other
familiar gospel songs.
It was the devotional hour and with every
passing mlniUo the congregation grow larger
as the delegates continued to arrive.
Hov. D. 1C. Tindall of the Scward Street
Methodist church led the devotional meet
ing , and when it closed President G. W.
Bergo of Lincoln took charge of the proceed
The address of welcome on behalf of the
Epworth leaguers of Otn.iha was delivered
by Hon. Charles A. Goss of this city. Ho
said that ho fully realised the fact that
ho had not been called upon to
extend n welcome to a political
convention. Ho looked into the faces of an
assemblage interested in a work more far
reaching and Important than politics. It de
volved upon ttio young Christians of the
country to shape the moral destinies of the
coming generations , to battle with vice nnd
sin and assist in making Nebraska and the
cntiro United States more thoroughly
In closing he expressed the hope that the
visiting delegates might enjoy the sojourn In
Omaha and return to their homes with re
newed zeal for the work of the league.
Hov. William II. Murray welcomed the
delegates to the city on behalf of the
Epworth leaguers of Hanscom Park church.
Ho believed that Nebraska was ono of the
very best states In the union for young
people to live in.
"It Is all right for your own visiting
brethren and sisters to push toward tin ?
cast until you reach the Missouri river , until
you reach Omaha , but right hero wo would
have you tarry. We would have you break
bread with us and drink the spark
ling waters of the Missouri river [ laughter ]
Later In the season you will have your eyes
turned toward Cleveland , toward tlio Inter
national convention of the Epworth League ,
but bo careful that you are not drawn to
Chicago to vanity fair. Look out for the
snares and the pitfalls that will thcro beset
set for your feet. "
In conclusion the speaker exhorted the
members of the league to live up to the
motto of the league : "Look Up , Lift Up. "
Proud of Omalm'8 Growth.
Rev. A. H. Julian , presiding older of the
northwest Nebraska district , responded to
the addresses of welcome. Ho thanked the
leaguers of Omaha for the hearty and un-
mistalcablo welcome that had been extended
to the delegates. He wanted especially to
thank the entertaining brethren on behalf
of the delegates who came from the far
western .border lines of the state.
"I como from the frontier , " said the
speaker , "where sod houses nro a familiar
sight. Oh , what a privilege it is to
gather hero In this beautiful i church ,
to listen to the music of such an organ a ?
that before us. How we would love to linger
here. As citizens of Nebraska wo are
proud of the growth and development of
Omaha. Wo realize that this mighty city
that has so rapidly sprung into metropolitan
proportions is but a result of the growth of
this great , young stato. After all the state
is a good deal bigger than Omaha. The
state is the cause , Omaha a result. 1 know
that all these delegates will look back with
pleasure upon this occasion. "
While the convention sang. "Thoro is
Sunshine in His Love , " Blshon Ninde en
tered the church. President Berg requested
the bishop to address the convention , and ho
complied In a most pleasing manner. He
touched particularly upon the increasing
liberality of wealthy men. "There is but
very little wealth inherited by the Method
ist church , " said the speaker.
"Many of the children of our wealthiest
members become connected after they grow
up with outside alliances and they go else
where and take their money with them.
But somehow God has a way of bringing
into our church poor boys with nothing but
their natural pluck and noble mnnhood and
business tact. They begin poor , but they
are soon rich nnd they do not forget the
church of their choice and their obligations
to God. They pour out their wealth by the
thousands and millions.
A resolution of thanks to Bishop Nindc
was passed by the convention.

Mr , L. O. Jones of Lincoln spoke upon "The
Epworth Ubof and the Epworth Wheel. " Ho
spoke first In n general way of the work of
the Epworth league and then turning the
trend ot thought to the old Epworth parish
manse In England , the homo of John Wes
ley's father nnd mother , ho related many
interesting event * in the lives of the
founders of Methodism. In connection with
these remarks he spoke of thu orcnnUatlon
of the Emvorth league , which ho
characterized as the ' 'greater Emvorth
roof. " Ho regarded the organization as
being an absolute need In the progress of
the church. The prayer and class meeting
were nil right In their place , but they failed
somehow to eathcr In the young people and
hold them. The Epworth league was doing
that work. The Epworth badge Is made In
the form of a wheel with four spokes , and
upon these four characteristics of the organ
ization the speaker dwelt for some
tune. The Epworth league had
become a power for goou by pushing the re
vival wonc and strengthening the spiritual
outposts of the church. Ho gave Illustra
tions of the ofllcleney of the fragile In the
local mission work In both Lincoln and
Omaha. In the department ot mercy and
help the leaguers had been turning to many
deeds of practical good in assisting the poor
and the sick.
Purser's Itcport.
The treasurer , Mr , Haymond P. May , read
a brief report showing the financial status
of the league. Mr. May was appointed about
three months ago to fill the position made
vacant by the rcsiL'iiation of the former
treasurer. Ho said that no statement of the
condition of the finances prior to his appoint
ment had ever been handed to him , so ho
had no means of knowing how the matter
stood. Ho did know , however , that ho had
mot with very discouraging results In the
effort to raise funds by sending out
letters to the leagues of the
stato. In answer to over ! ! 00 letters ho had
received about forty replies containing in all
1(1.60. ( The league was $ 'J.)0 in debt and it
was absolutely necessary to have abou $000
to sot the league properly on Us feet and
push the work for the coming year. A sub
scription was taken and something like $1100
was pledged by the delegates present for the
expenses of the league during the coming
The convention then separated Into the
various divisions for conference work. The
division of spiritual work was led by Dr. B.
L. Palno ; that of literary work by Miss
Eunice Babbitt of North Platte ; mercy and

livening .Mooting.
The auditorium of the Ilanscom Park
church was crowded to its capacity last
night with visiting Epworth leaguers and
Omaha people. The program was ono of
moro than usual interest to Methodists , ami
particularly to leaguers. It was what theatergoers
ater-goers would call a double bill , with both
parts a pretty fair entertainment of them
selves. In the first place Mr. G. W. Berg ,
prcsldcntof the state league , delivered the
annual address nnd succeeded In saying u
great many things that fit'the occasion so
completely .that thcro could bo no room left
for disappointment. His remarks seemed to
inspire the leaguers with a great deal of en-
thublasni , and , after' all , that Is about the
main object to be attained in holding state
Following the president's address came a
capital sermon by ono of the brightest young
men hoard in Omaha in many months. Hov.
Nacy McGce Waters of Dubuque was the
man , nnd when it is said he Is a young man
that docs not mean n man of 110 or US , but a
man of only 215 , yet ho fills ono of the fore
most Methodist pulpits in Iowa.
The Icloul Church.
The serious portions of his address were
deftly interspersed with anecdotes. Ono of
the leading and important thoughts of the
speech was that tbo aristocratic , church or ,
as Judge Tourgeo has put It , "tho church of
the Golderi Lilies , " was not the church that
accomplished that which Jesus of Nazareth
desired to have His followers accomplish.
The working church , the church with its
sleeves rolled up , so to speak , and all Its
members hustling for the good of the poor ,
the distressed and the wicked , was the Ideal
church. The speaker thought that the day
was not far distant when the most useful
churches in tbo country would have gym
nasiums , bathrooms and libraries connected
with them for the accommodation of the
poor nnd for the benefit of the laboring
QAnothcr thought emphasized In the ad
dress was that the moral destinies of the
people lay to a great extent In the hands ol
the young people.
"Wo speak ot Mr. Gladstone , " said the
speaker , "as being a grand old man , for
getting that ho was a grand young man as
well uud In Parliament at the ago of 22 ,
Young men have fought the battles of the
world there can bo no question about that
The fact of the business is , wo never have
any grand old men unless wo have gram :
young men. " Taking this thought as n bast ;
ho proceeded to point out to the young mer
of the church the necessity of getting tc
work at an early ago If they meant to develop
velop suniclont striking force to accompllsl
a great and good work for the Master.
