24 THE LOTTERY TRAFFIC IS DECREASING. Sale of Tickets in San Francisco Reduced Fully One-Half. CHIEF CROWLEY'S VIEWS. Ho Says "The Call's" Exposes Are Responsible for the Reduction. MORE OF THE FOX FRAUD. The Honduras Company Repudiates Its Prize-Winning Ticket for Forty Dollars. "Since The Call's crusade against the lottery traffic began the sale of tickets has fallen off 50 per cent in this City," said Chief of Police Crowley > esterday. "The Call has awakened a heretofore slumbering public sentiment against the unlawful business. That is one reason for its success," continued the Chief. "But there is a more potent reason than that. Self-respect and respect for the laws go a great way sometimes — but self-inter est goes further. This is largely a case of pelf-interest. The Call has shown the people the swindling methods of the lot tery concerns, has uncovered a good many of its more palpable frauds and has ex posed many of its fake agencies and coun terfeiting schemes.

CHICAGO, 111., July 7.— With little warning of its terrific death-deaiing force and destructive character a wind and rain storm, such as has not been seen for years, broke opon the city about 5:30 o'clock this afternoon. The complete result will not be known until to-morrow, but it is certain to-night that four lives were lost on Lake Michigan by the capsizing of boats at the mercy of the hurricane. The first appearance of the storm was indicated by a severe blowing of dust in the business part of the city, sending the thousands of pedestrians to seek refuge in the hotels and stores which were open. In a few minutes the gale increased to a fifty mile gait and the sky was overcast with circulating clouds and black masses filled with the...

Frank E. Hinckley, preacher and ex-reporter, was ordained at the Second Congregational Church, West Oakland, yesterday afternoon with great ceremony, Frank W. Gunsaulus, the great Chicago divine, preaching the ordination sermon and welcoming the young man into the ranks of Congregational clergymen. Mr. Hinckley was a pupil under Dr. Gunsaulua in Chicago, after he gave up his position as newsgatherer on the News to devote his life to the ministry, and the training he had received from the well known preacher was nearly if not all his fitting for the pulpit. The ordination was quite an event in clerical circles in view of the prominence of Hincktej's sponsors and of the severe and unusual ordeal he had been compelled to undergo to gain hi* title of reverend.

10 SINGLE TAX IN DELAWABE. A United Effort to Have the System Adopted in That State. WHAT THE RESULT WILL BE. Ninety Per Cent of the People Are Landless and They Are All Educated. "Yes, we will make a concentrated effort to have the single tax-system adopted in the State of Delaware," saia Congressman Maguire to a representative of The Call yesterday. "The singie-tax men of the country are becoming impatient for prac tical work and I believe the leaders are practically agreed upon selecting Dela ware as the battle ground and opening up a steady and vigorous campaign of educa tion there. "Since the New York campaigns of 1886-87 the single-tax leaders have steadily advised in favor of quiet propaganda work and against all efforts prematurely to force the question into practical politics. "The majority of the single-tax men en tered with a religious zeal into the Demo cratic movement for the reduction of tariff duties, believing that, with the reduction of duties on imports, the Govern...

A Prediction That the New Arrival Will Take the Name of Naomi. BUZZARDS BAY, Mass., July B.— President Cleveland skipped away quietly from Gray Gables this morning for a clay's fishing for trout ten miles away in Sand wich. He was attired in positively the worst-looking suit of old, rusty-gray clothing which it was possible to tind stowed away in the back of his stay-there all-the-year-round wardrobe at the Gables. He wore an old brown hat with a broad, loose rim, which flapped in the foggy breeze and obscured the entire upper por tion of his face to his nostrils. But he was happy— there was no mistak ing that. The President went down the road in his own carriage, with his driver on the front seat, beside Charles B. Jefferson, and heside the owner sat Joe Jefferson. They rished all day in Mr. Jefferson : s pr...

8 THE CLERGY AND DOGMA Presbyterian Ministers Discuss Conservative and Liberal Theology. EEV. J. D. EATON ON MEXICO. Dr. G. W. Hennlng Will Deliver a Series of Lectures on Socio logical Topics. Conservatism and radicalism, old school and new school Prosbyterianism, crossed swords at the meeting of the Presbyterian Ministerial Union yesterday. The imme diate occasion of the warfare was a paper on "Relation of Civilization to Dogmatic Theoiogy," by Dr. Alexander, who occu pies the chair of ecclesiastical history at the San Anselmo Theological Seminary. The reverend gentleman defined dogma as "a clear, concise statement of truth." He expressed the belief that man develops in proportion to his intimate relation with God. He dwelt upon the theory that dog matic theology is the strongest element used in man's" civilization and stated that Calvinism, as administered by Presby terianism, is the best roan-maker, or de veloping agency of the best in man. Dr. Ellis said history bears out the t...
