WINDSOR, Eng., Dec. 13.—Sir John Thompson, the Canadian prime minis­ ter, expired at Windsor after the meet­ ing of the privy council, at whioh he was sworn in as a member. The Canadian premier was the first to arrive at Paddington railroad station, London, in order to accompany the cab­ inet ministers and members of the privy council on the special train bound for this place, where a meeting of the privy council was to be held at the castle. Sir John waited on the patform of Paddington station for half an hour before the special train started, and during that time he conversed in an animated manner with several mem­ bers of the oabinet.

The Monday Evening Meeting. Tlie meetings have now such a hold on the people that no winter attractions or unfavorable weather make perceptible difference in the numbers that attend. This was noticeable Monday lifght especially when the attendance was compared with .that of previous Monday meetings. The address was couched in ques­ tion form, the text being Jno. 1:38. and from that text Mr. Hunt gave •ne of the most powerful talks to which the people have listened. "The words of our text," said the speaker, have sometimes been called Jesus' first sermon." Then followed a brief but interesting comment up­ on the verses surrounding the text. All this naturally led to the main thought that Mr. Hunt sought, and with f.great success, the need and value of Jesus Christ. Mr. Hunt appealed to his hearers to seek Christ then. "The Kingdom of God is not far off, it is within you, or may be within you tonight and heaven itself be begun -here upon earth." "To seek the kingdom of God is to put G...

Corn, wheat and cotton are oar three greatest cropa, in tlie order named. The •corn crop is less by 170,000,000 bushels 'than it was in 1893, the estimate for 1894 being 1,450,000,000 bnshela.

As General Clay is worth about $200, 000 and is in his eighty-fourth year, it is natural enough that his heirs should got excited over his marriage to a girl in her teens, but tho great American public re­ fuses to regard with anything but amuse ment this blue grass sensation.

MADRID, Deo. 18.—Mr. Taylor, the United States minister, had an im­ portant conference with Senor Griorsi dar, minister of foreign affairs, relative to the imposition of excessive duties upon imports into Cuba from the United States. He informed the senoi that he had been directed by his gov­ ernment to inform the government oi Spain that if it persisted in exacting these discriminating duties the action could be regarded by the president only as inviting the exercise by him of the power of retaliation conferred by the act of 1890.

From the commence­ ment the interest has been remark ably strong aud the influence far reaching. There were many well disposed to evangelistic work wlvo predicted that the meetings would be a failure because of their belief that Little Falls was a hard place in which to work along such lines. They were happily surprised at their mistake, and indeed every lover of righteousness and peace must rejoice at the wonderful success that has attended the labors of Messrs Hunt and Browning.

2 A SUBSTITUTE. Practically New Currency BUI Introduced by Congress­ man Springer. IS APPROVED BY CARLISLE. Changes Made to Meet the Objections of its Many Opponents. WASHINGTON, Deo. 22.—After con­ ferences between the Democratic mem­ bers of the house committee on bunk­ ing and currency and with the ap­ proval of tbe secretary of the treasury, Mr. Springer introduced a substitute for the Carlisle currency bill. It is substantially .a new,measure, although some of the sections of the orig­ inal measure are contained in the new bill. Two very important features appear for the first time in the substi­ tute. The main one will have the ef­ fect of allowing the national banking system to run along, without an arbi­ trary provision that the banks must organize under the new system. The original Carlisle bill contemplated that all national banks must reorganize un­ der the new. plan. This would have required them to surrender the govern­ ment bonds which now constitute the base of their ...
