Criticise Maravleff'a Appointment.
ST. PETERSBURG, July 6.-M. Mur-
avleff will arrive here Sunday. He will
receive special instructions from the em
peror end consult with the various min
isters and will leave with his suite for
Washington probably about July 20. But
the date Is not absolutely fixed.
Russia has not yet received indications
of Japan's attitude toward an armistice.
The Slovo today severely criticises the se
lection of M. Muravleff as one of the Rus
sian peace plenipotentiaries, declaring that
he has neither the ability nor the tempera
ment to conduct great negotiations. His
rise to the position of minister of Justice,
the paper affirms, was not due to his
faithfulness to the ideals of Justice, but
rather devotion to the arbitrary methods
which are execrated throughout Russia.
The Slovo recalls "the deplorable Incidents
which marked M. Muravlefrs connection
with the Hartman affair In Paris and The
Hague conference," as reasons for express
ing the opinion that negotiations under
his direction are sure to be accompanied
by many disappointments.
It is generally understood here that M.
Muravleff's selection was extremely dis
tasteful to Foreign Minister Lamsdorff and
that it was the emperor's personal act.
Among the liberals a story Is being in
dustriously circulated and believed that
Japan at the Washington peace conference
will demand that the treaty of peace, if
concluded, shall be submitted for the rati
fication of the Russian people In order
to insure Its observance in case of a change

GROWTH OF CHRISTIAN WORK
Speaker at Baltimore Tell of
Progress Made with the
BALTIMORE,' July 6. The second day's
session of the twenty-second International
Christian Endeavor's convention was pre
sided over by the Rev. George B. Stewart
of Auburn, N. V.
William Bhaw of Boston, delivered the
following address, upon "What Christian
Endeavors Hare Done." saying In part:
Twenty-five years' ago the ruling Idea In
the church Was that children should be
seen and not heard. The result was that
few were seen, and none were heard.
Twenty-five years of Christian Endeavor
has revealed to the church that It Is out of
the young people that the Kingdom of
Heaven Is to be made.
This week over Mi.iicO Christian Endeavor
prayer meetings will be held, and tens of
thousands mure by societies that belong,
and ought to be. In our fellowship. Twonty
flve years ago the church that had a well
organised young people's society was the
exception. Todnv the church that does not
have such a society is a curiosity.
Christian Endeavor made 'he prayer
meeting the heart of the movement, and
has laid great emphasis on testimony and
prayer, bb it outtht: for without prnyer and
testimony the church would die. Tho mnr
tyrs and confessors rank together.
Through its system of committee work It
offers opportunity for training In service
to every member.
Through the executive commit! it gives
to the pastor a cabinet by wiin'h he enn
touch and direct every line of work In
which the young people are engaged.
Twenty-five years ago a small percentage
of the churches had mission circles com
posed of (tlrls or young women. Now we
have thousands of our brightest and best
young men vying with the young women
in their Interest and enthusiasm for mis
sions. Tens of thousands of missionary
committees are nt work, and thousands of
mission study classes are conducted.
Lust year tne gifts or tne young people,
to missions reported to the Presbyterian
general assembly amounted to $184. OXI, and
this Is a sample of the new missionary
asset that hns been developed. Iss than
10,000 societies reporting to the United so
ciety the actual amounts contributed for
beneficence for a period of five years gave
a total of 12.1S7.00O. Not a penny of this
was Riven to the United society or used In
Christian Endeavor work, but every dollar
was a contribution to the missionary and
philanthropic work of the church.
Mrs. Kate L. Hause of St. Louis, field
secretary of Missouri Christian Endeav
orers, spoke on the call for superintend
ents and was heartily applauded.
During the afternoon there was a con
ference In the Associate Congregational
church of the officers of all state and local
Christian Endeavor unions, under the
leadership of General Secretary von Ogden
Vogt, at which the following subjects were
"The Federation of Unions."
"Flnnnclnsr I.ocM Enterprises."
The afternoon session' of the convention

ing to a Christian Endeavor convention
and told of the rapid growth of religion
and Americanism in that Island. Jamaica's

to by John E. Randall and Rev. Edward
J. Hewett, president of the Jamaica Chris
tian Endeavor union.
Rev. Henry G. C. HallocJt. Ph. D. spoke
on behalf of China. Rev. J. Edward Kntpp

mendous applause and waving of flags,

Part of the De
TOPEKA, Kan., July C. J. Devlin to
night filed In the United States district
court voluntary petition In bankruptcy.
This action was decided upon at a lengthy
conference this afternoon between Mr.
Devlin and his attorneys. Mr. Devlin was
In favor of the move because It would
centralize the handling of all his properties
and make easier the settlement of all
his creditors, the prlnclptt", one of which
is the First National bank.
Judge Pollock granted the petition and
announced he would appoint a receiver
for tho property tomorrow.
The statement of Devlin's liabilities Is
given as follows:
To the Flntt National bank of Topeka,
Kan., about $1,200,000.
Central National bank of Topeka, about
American National bank of Kansas City,
National Bank of Commerce of Kansas

The petition then names the various
properties owned by Mr. Devlin and says
that the property Is In such shape that It
must be taken In Immediate charge by the
Santa Fe Iload Will Help.
The Santa Fe railroad is preparing to
lend aid to all the Devlin companies until
such a time as a final settlement can bo
made. This step Is being considered by
the company as the best method of pro
lecting itself from loss. All the Bnnta Fe
mines In Kansas are being operated by
Devlin, and It Is necessary to keep the
mines running In order that the road may
be supplied with coal.
W. B. Jansen, assistant to President
Ripley, came to Topeka today to confer
with the Devlin attorneys and creditors
with a view to keeping the mines running.
Mr. Jansen said that he was In Topeka
with authority to close the deal and make
arrangements for the continuance of the
Devlin mines in operation. It Is under
stood that the proposition is to have the
railroad company assume a part of the
payroll due Saturday.
Money Part of Deposits.
T. J. Bradley, receiver of the failed First
National bank, said today that the money
placed for deposits In two or three days
before the Institution closed would become
part of the regular deposits, and could
not be considered as preferred. This money
was, it-'was stated, at the time of the
failure set aside by the bank officials to
avoid criminal proceedings against them
for accepting deposits when the bank was
In a falling condition. If this money finally
Is made part of the regular deposits It is
argued that the officials will be subject
There was a better feeling about the
state house today, following the discovery
that the state holds the bond of a surety
company for $250,000 to Insure It against
loss of money on deposit In the bank
on process of collection. This means that
at least one-half of the state's money In
the bank at least Is safe. Governor Hoch
was quoted today aa saying that within
