MADAME I.JS VERT. The residents of the Paclllc, accompanied bv a •elect number of friend*, gathered In the ladles’ ordinary last night to welcome Jim. Octavl.a Wal ton Levertand Mr*. Sollle Ward Hunt, who are visiting the city. The two ladles, aided by Mlhs Ilorrig and Mona. Uo Hass, had gotten up u most pleasing entertainment, alternating vocal music and recitations with reminiscences of by-gone times sod hcroos of this and the Old World. Madame 1.0 Vert is belter known to the old school than any lady now living, and her recol lections of Washington society ore of more then ordinary interest. Her father was Secretary pf State under Uun. Jackson, uml upon the uenui sitioo of Florida wnsmude Uh Governor. During her aariy life she wusabeltu in the best society of the land, and her literary contributions to the periodicals of the South have made her u brilliant reputation In the world of letters. Tho oiorcUos opened with the Schiller March, (Liszt), by Miss Conley, and during the evening Moor. Do l/aas recited and Miss Harris «ang must exquisitely. Hut the features were the charmingly related observations of Madame LoVert. IlerdescrJptJous o/CJay, Webster, Cal houn, Jackson, and Tout Benton, and the pecnll arities af the genius of each, were interesting, and her anecdotes of other groat men made a sort of background for the deeds of the heroes named, and all combined to as pleaoantan entertainment as the good people of Chicago are ofteu favored with. AFFETITB BILL. AdUpaoch was received at the “Store** last •▼ening from Madison, lud. .announcing that Will iam Langdon, well-known in tliia city among llto gambling fraternity as “Appetite Dill," was shot and seriously injured. No other particulars con cerning the matter were given, but U waa reported that the injured man had bccomu involved in a quarrel about some woman. The extent of the wound is not known, but It is thought to be mortal. “Appetite Bill," alls** Lungdon, hue long been an object of suspicion by the police. Ills asitu elates wore bunko men and gamblers ef the lowest grade. At one time he was a partner of Jim Apple ton in the proprietorship of an ill-flavored drinking saloon, which tlouished for awhile •u Clark sued, near Monroe. A year ago last winter be got into a shooting scrape about a woman at an “ (indefinable " dance at a disreputa ble West-Side dancing-hall. His demise will not be regretted except by the class with which be was Accustomed to associate. TIIE FAST TRAIN* ITS AHHIVAL IN CHICAGO. The fastest time ever made between KcwTork •ad Chicago was achieved yesterday. Jt com. plstely throw* io the shade all previous attempt* at extraordinary running for long distance*. The Jamtl A Palmer train, which left Kew York yes terday morning at 1:03 o'clock, for the purpose of making the Journey to Ban Franclscoln eighty-four hours, arrived in this city lost night at Xu o’clock, making the run uf 000 miles la twenty hours and fllty-aevcn mlnutca. Including all stoppages, the average rata of tpood woe a little over 44 miles per boor. The minimum speed woe 26 wiles per hum, •04 the maximum ranged from COUttib miles. TUB TRAIN woe composed of one locomotive end tender, one baggage car, ooe day coach, and one Paliman hotel and sleeping car. The run from Jersey City to Pittsburg, a distance of 444 mlhs, was made with one locomotive and without a single •tup, a feat which was Dover be fore attempted either In this country or Europe. Poor engineers and the same number of firemen had charge of the iron horee on this unprecedented trip, between ITtUburg and Chicago engines were three time*—at Alliance, Crcotliue, ami . to spite of Che dtoagreeabls weather of last even ing, there was a isrguattendsnee of aJgbt-aeers ut the Madison street depot, anriooa tu give a right t*7*t welcome to the fast train. Tho crowd arriving shortly after 0 o’clock, and durtn* W sos Ding hour Ihc/e was a steady stream »*••* tnSvul*. About 0;40 a squad of some evenly-w* or thirty policemen In command of hve bcrxvaita. and piloted by Hetectlve bimmons, Ippearedon'h# scene, and practically look jws tcaawn of Uu depot, so oa to prevent the possl kklUyof anaccgeut aud to keep order among Ihe crowd, which forced ila way to tho outer •dge of the pUform, and half-way out on Ihe wack. At two minutea to 10 o'clock the headlight o. the incoming train was dlacencd turning tie slight curve near Van Rureu •UclW- _ fiUttklUamhJjLtiitfe was a fan,da I Roman candles and other firework*. and, a# the train slowly approached (he depot, * vast hnrrah, three or four time# repealed, fame from the will* tng throat* of Ilia people who had assembled to pay i honor In a wonderful achievement. A Tnitu’NK reporter Immediately hoarded the train, and the flr«t person whom In* met wan MH. HENRY <?. 4AUKBTT, In whose charge the train was run. Tnr. TmnnNE tendered It* congratulations, which were heart* Hy responded to. and the man of thn pencil then turned his attention to the passengers. These included Lawrence Barrett, Charles Bishop, and F. K. Thorne, who arc going to Sun Francisco to play a six-weeks’ engagement under the management of Jnrrett & Palmer, K. W. Eldrldge, of the Tromonl Hnn*e, of this city; Fhrenlx Hcmron. New York; Warren Enurson, Boston; Gen. Horace Porter; Milton Preior, London Illnxtratfd A>w«; 1), Williams. New York Herald; It. F, Rn««c11, New York; and “Vhe Great Unknown." The last mentioned Is undoubtedly the next President of tho United Mates. He very gruffly declined to give his name, aid staled that he had made a special bargain with Xr. .tarrrlt tlial Ids name should not be given for jublicntlon. From the manner In which he re* Klled all opportunities to submit to an interview, c reporter Is Justified In surmising that he is un ispirnnt for the Presidential chair, to bo trotted out at either of the National Conventions. tub passengers presented a sorry-looklng appearance, and donbt less would have cheerfully given four bits fora bath. They looked a# If they had been drawn by the heels through a dust-heap of variegated hues. Dust and dirt wore everywhere discernible, All wore Jaded ami worn-out with the Jutting to which they had been subjected, and the excitement under winch they labored. ■ Thu train slopped only a few minute# at the Madlaon street depot, and was then taken to the Northwestern truck, just oast of the bridge, near Canal street One of the most powerful engines of the Northwestern Company was attached to the train; half a cord or so of stores w:v* taken on hoard; an accession to the passenger list In the person of B. A. Parker, Uio local ticket agent of the Northwestern Railroad, stepped on board. the conductor yelled out •• all on board,” and at lOrtiH the en gineer pulled open the throttle ind the train moved out amidst a rolling of cheers and adhplay of tire works. Mr. .larrctt expect# to reach Omaha this morning ot 0 o'clock. THE TRIP from New York to Chicago was an almost continu ous ovation. At every station crowd* of people turned out to sec the Fast Train; it was sere naded limit and again by band# of music, but the melodious strains were lost on the excursion ists. They heard on* note, which was immediately loslto hearing in the rush of “team and the never ending pounding of the driving-wheel# as they whirled with lightning-like rapidity over the par allel rail*. Throughout the trip everything worked to perfection, There was no delay whatever. All passing and meeting trains followed to a second the npedal time-table* prepared. On leaving New York, I.*, 000 conic# of a npedal edition of the New York Herald wort? taken on board; and, a# the train slowed up U> pass through Harrisburg, 10,000 copies of th? Baltimore Nun were pitched Into the baggage-car. These bud Iwen sent up on a special train from Baltimore. In the baggage-car were nine sacks of mall from New York,—one (or Pittsburg, two for Chicago, one for Omaha, one for Sacramento, and four for San Francisco. Meals for tho excursionist# arc pre pared on board the train and served at a sjiecd ranging from 45 to 00 mile# per hour. ■WHISKY. NO CASES HEADY. The verdict of flat, stale, ami unprofitable Js probably an befitting an any which can be bestowed on the proceedings of tho United States Court yes icrday morning. There was a dim apprehension Hut the case of Hildreth might come np some time, but Just when nobody professed to know. It was among the barest of possibilities that the ease might bo called, and so a few of the usual court hangers-on were present, eager for anything sensa tional to satisfy their whetted appetites. They were doomed to crncl disappointment. After disposing of a batch of civil motions, •fudge itiodgett asked the District Attorney whether ho had anything ready (or trial. -Mr. Hangs replied that ho had not, but that he wished to go over the docket, ascertain how many cases wore left, who the attorneys were, and notify them to be readv for trial within a short time. Accordingly several minor cases were called, but only to be continued Indetlnltely or defaulted. The Court advised Judge Hangs to bunt up dilatory attorneys and defend ants by tho processes known Jo the Jaw, and that gentleman replied that he was disposed to do that very thing. Louis Nelko, an ex-Gnnger. appeared and changed his pica of not guilty to the plea of guilty on one of tho counts, and, Inferenllally, of not guilty to the remaining ones. Judge Bangs said that concerning the case of the Aldermnnlc Ganger, Hildreth, In Justice to tho parlies he thought it best to pass It fnrtho present. An agreement had been made between counsel that the defendant was to appear Saturday, when a day would lie set for the trial of the case. Tho case of Aid. Ciillcrtun could he tried Monday. The Court observed that he hud given notice the previous day that he could not alt Monday, and some oilier nay must tw set. Judge Hangs acknowledged tho force of this re mark. and there the mutter ended, nn day being set for the case to come up. He announced that he would probably Imvo some small criminal coses ready for this morning. TUB WADSWORTH CASE will conn* op Tuesday, but nobody need be dlsap pointed at another continuance. Wbllo District- Attorney Hangs say* the Government Is ready, he at the same time admits that there Is some doubt an to the trial being taken up uml put through next week. lie could not be Induced tu state the reason for the doubt, but lokl a TnmusK reporter yester day afternoon that Jake Itehm wonld be nut on the stand, and lie believed that Jake would toil only the truth, m, ho maintains, ho bad told the pure, un adulterated truth la the Munn trial. From all that can ho loomed, Mr. Htorrs will bo ready with his end of the performance by Tuesday. Wherefore, then, these doubts on the part of Judge Hungs that the case will be perhaps continued again, or In some way delayed? The recent letter of Instructions from Washington, as a TnmuNis reporter learned yesterday, directed the District Attorney to proceed hi (he Wadsworth and Ward canes with at) vigor, but left it to his own discretion as regards continuances. The revenue men say there is a good co«n against Wadsworth, and that Juke's testimony, while important. In not bv any means all there b» t to the case. Others say that Jake will prove so great an obstacle to further convictions that the Government will cither go to trial with a feeling of pretty certain defeat, or it will (;uletly drop Jake, ami, by delaying matters a few days, see what can be done by unlne the other witnesses. Solicitor Wilson fs expected here to-day, and a dual conclusion will doubtless be reached. JOHN C. PARTRIDGE. MEETING OF HIS llLMlNflsa AhSOCIATES.

It wns for SII.UOU and tho Hoard allowed 810,000, leaving the balance for fur ther investigation. The motion called out Commissioner Guenther, who said that he had examined each voucher care fully, and seemed to think a reconsideration a re flection on the honesty of himself and tho Joint Committee on Public HiiiMlngn and Hospital. He stated that if tho Superintendent of the Hospital did not attend Jo his duties and could not be trust ed, he would vote for tho discharge of that person. He did not care whether the Grand Jury indicted him or not, he bad done his duty, and the other members of the Committee knew It. Commissioner Burdick said be was not question ing the conduct of the Commissioner; he consid ered It a matter of propriety to move a reconsid eration, under present circumstances. Tho motion was lost—yeas, 4; nays, 0. THE COURT-HOUSE.

Sermon by the EvnngeUst—When tho Building Will Be Dedicated. Meeting of tho Intcnmtloim! Executive Committee of tho Y. M. C. A. D. Ij. MOODY’S CIIUUCIL tub oi’BNino REiincns. Notwithstanding the terrific storm which broke over the city yesterday evening, quite a largo crowd was present at the opening cere monies of (ha church. The audience was com posed of all sorts and conditions of men, but the majority of those in attendance were un doubtedly of the “canny” religions class who have taken a deep Interest In tho great evangelists’ labors. From the beginning to tbc dose nt tbo service quite an amount of en thusiasm prevailed. Mr. Saukey was a little out of voice, owing to recent sickness, but tbo congregation Joined In the choruses of his songs with great spirit, and thus, In a great measure, outbalanced the weakness of tbc great Gospel soloist. No demonstration was made when Mr. Moody made his appearance, and he evidently did not expect any. ,As soon as he stepped on to the platform he plunged right Into the business and kept the ball rolling lively op to the close. Prof. Swing was noticed among tho audience. The exercises begun at a quarter to 8 with a service of song. The various hymns were given out by Dr. Miller, who presided at the cabinet organ, and tho lorgo volunteer choir, which hud attended out of compliment to the great evan gelist, rendered valuable assistance to the con gregation in singing the Gospel songs which Mr. Ssnkcy has douu his best to make famous. Mlt. MOODY stepped Into the room at 6 o'clock, accompanied by several friends, conspicuous among whom was John V. Forwcil. Alter n few moments of prater, sprang to his feet with eon* sldcrable cßfrgy and, strelchlnp out Ills arm. cried *• Let us loSßto Ood for III* blessing. " This was n hint to the Itor. Mr. Krdman, oillclatlng pastor of the church, who ofTered nu u short prayer. Heading of Scripture amt singing followed, nnd then the Interest centered on the great evangelist, who made the following remarks: I want to make a tlnnnelnl statement of our affairs. The morning after the Ur« I remember riding on Illinois street, and when I got in front of the rains of our building I found a little girl look* log at the ruins. The moment I spoke to her she recognized my voice, and turned with tears In her eyes and said, “I>o you think, Mr. Moody, yon will ever have another building?" Hull comes fresh to my mind to-night, as I look at this beauti ful building. Her own home was burned down, but she dlil not seem to cure for that. The old school-building was gone, ami her little heart was broken. You know the lire was In October, nnd wo were in a temporary building by Doc. X of thnt same year, 1871. The furniture of thnt building cost $-1,700. We remained there until Doc. 1, 1874. The work on this present building began in August, 1873, but owing to the panic, the base ment was completed with a temporary roof, and the basement was first occupied Dec. ill, JB7-L The rebuilding began In August, 1875. The lot. which Is 110x130 feet, cost us $22,500. Thu cost of the foundation and the first story as completed was $33,000. As the building now stands with the lot It cost 880,207, or this building alone alxmt $07,000. I have not time to road how the money has been paid lu, and the recital would perhaps nut Interest an audience like this. It may Interest you, however, to know that for ty-two Slates and Territories contributed to this building, nnd that 7)00,000 children have sent their mites to help erect this building. It would touch your hearts to read the letters that came from dllfercnt parts of the country uml from Canada, England, Scotland, und Ireland, uml one from China, where a spark of our fire had traveled and fell into and kindled a man's heart, and he sent us a contribution of about §IOO. We have now 810,807.77 to pay. Yon will notice by the advertisement that this Is not culled the dedica tion services; it is only the opening. We will dedicate tho building when It Is paid for. We havo just opened the building to show what has been dune, and. If our friends like to pay the debt, we will dedicate It. We will hold a meeting to-night, Friday night, and Sunday night, aud If uv Sunday night the debt la not paid, wo will lock the church up, and keep it LOCKED UP UNTIL IT 13 PAID FOR. I know what it Is to owe such money. I havo gone through school and religious Indebtedness, and If any man knows its unhappiness it is my self. I got so as I could not walk tho streets of Chicago without fearing to meet one of our cred itors. If Ido come back to Chicago, I won’t be able to look In your faces until tills debt It paid. A great many people wanted to know why I did not come direct dock to Chicago at once. That is tho reason; because I could not took you In tho face as long as there is a debt hanging over us. If wn can raise $20,000 to-night wo will go on nnd dedicate, but If we don't get It to-ntght wo will try it again to-morrow night. We don't want anybody to give unless ho wants to give. Wo want nothing to go towards this work unless St Is given freely; we, don't want any money that dues not come from tho heart, Air. Sankey then sang “Ninety and Nine," niter which a collection was taken up, and realized 812, 357. TUB RBRMON. Mr. Moody then preached the opening sermon. He began by detailing hit) early experience in mis sion work and the difficulties he had to anrmount before be made hlo labors successful. The lesson be deduced from this was that the Chnrch made a great mistake In not training young converts to the work of saving souls. He tlrst started a '‘Hinging school," as It would have been Impolitic to talk about thoUlblo or Testament, but of that begin* nlng his cburch bad grown. They ought, if they gave it a name, to call It a singing church, because one-lmlfof the money bad been raised from the sale of the hymn book*, in IHUOtbu great strug gle of his life occurred. A crisis came, uml bo bad either to give up business or give up working for the Lord. The three mouths during winch he de bated this tiucstlon was the worst time of bis life. Ho woa at that lime tilled with ambition, and wanted to bo a successful business man. The re suit of this struggle all present know; bo forsook hla business to labor in the Lord's vineyard. The steps which led to the erection of the church were detailed, and Mr. Moody then gave a few par ticulars in regard to his European tour. Ju 187 fl he went to England for the purpose of studying. While ho was there ho spoke hi one church, and there woro !10U or fiOO Inquiries after (be sermon. He Ulen gave up tbo idea of study, and went to work, and found such u held Uml he made up his mind to return to Chicago and arrange again and then go back und work a year in England. He was so egotistical that he thought If tue church here lived without him It would do remarkably well, and that if it could get along without Mr. Saukey It would bo wonderful. Instead of one year, such a field was ojxsued to Mr. Saukey and himself, they stayed three. He could not express thy Joy he fell In coming back und finding the cburch in a healthier state than when ho left. Their experience had settled the question us to how mis nionory enterprises could best be made succesofu). By proper organization, and careful, sustained ef forts the twenty-five missions (hut had started in this city and collapsed during the past eighteen yuan might have grown luto healthy, vigorous churches. It won easy to sustain such enterprises. Suppose 1,000 people attended a building like this, tf they gav« 10 cents each a week, which they might easily spare from their tobacco money, it would amount to $.% 000 a year, and be amide to support the church. Hu bod objected to calling tins building tbe Mission Cburch, because every cburch ought to be called that. The Homan Catho lics uuly called their places uf worship churches, ancle dub thla one a Mission Cburch would give the Idea Hint they were pauper*, aud supported and sustained by outside people. There wua a frest field for undenominational churches a this and oilier I&rgu cities, which, If worked, would yield a rich harvest. Too flo should be impressed with the necessity of co„- Inual aud systematic labor iu the cause of Christ. The diversity of gilts should be considered by pas tors. If a man had a genius for distributing tracts bo should bo given tbe opportunity to exorcise it, and so with the other departments of Christian work, Steady and persistent aud well-directed effort would revolutionize any part of the world. Tbe Gospel had not lout its power, but the trouble was they had gone to sleep. Whal a mighty work could be accomplished if all the Uirlstluns in Chi cago would work u little; eternity alone would tel) the result. Tbe time bud come when Ui# children of God were to unite, and where there was a fort to be held, each man aud woman would have to fight vigorously to hold it for Christ. Tbo churcho* should use a little entumeu sense In their efforts to reach tbe people. If they could not be brought within the fold through llic means of denominational churches, churches should be organised which would ellcct lids object. They should taka irregular minister* if they could nut gel regulars. When the War was raging volunteers were called for, aud in this terri ble buttle between the Gospel and hell volunteer)) should be called out. Let each one rise from Ibis meeting aud see if they could not fiud some work lu do, and plum some mission enterprise that would live after they were dead uml gone. The service was brought to u clone w ith on* of Mr. Saukey’s popular Gospel songs. HISTORY Ok TUU CltUKCli. A brief sketch of the history of the church will not be out of place hero. The ground was broken In July, 1873, and from that time until early In tho fail the wurk was pushed vigorously. Hard times came ua during the winter, and everything waa abandoned until about the let of the following August, since when It has been progressing stead ily until the completion of tho edltlcc.

Those interested hnra shown a warm attachment for the church, And them has never been an ox* preasion of dlsHatlsfactlun until presented itself. To the visitor the first effect of the ceilings Is Blaming. The apparent intricate dorian, or rather nhsenre of design, the loud nnd (o all appearance utterly inharmonious ming ling of colura strike the oyo painfully. Hut a study of the work devtdopes a simplicity wonderful when compared with tho llrsl Impression. Tho work is merely a surface flower painting, without perspective, and the flow ers and leaves, not at all relieved, combine with a most artistic background (o deceive thn careless oye into a contempt for (he whole. The flowers nro magnificent specimens of botanical imaginings, and yet arc nut entirety without the range of ho* tanical possibilities. The severe simplicity, coup led with Hie absence of perspective, gives an an cient, or perhaps ft cabalistic, cast to tho whole, yet when tho pu?./de is solved It astonishes the be holder with tho very lack of whnl nt tlrst seems most prominent. It is like the landscaped of which tlie attraction is a man shooting at a rabbit, but which must ho carefully studied before the student learns that the man, tho gun, ftnd tho game arc ar tistically funned by the combination 'uf branches and Icavefl. When you see it. It is nil right, bnt until you iln seo It It don't aniout to much. lindiatiug from u skylight ltd feet in diameter, arc u series of sprigs, executed in glass ami cast iron. In preen, yellow, bine, and while. Hound ing this ia an altar circle of rosettes of white glass with blue centre. Outside this circle In a wido hand of maroon with gold beads. If left here Hie result would be 11 perfect architectural design. Then comes the core, passing at the bottom Into an octagonal lintel. Tho problem then became tho unity of the two features, solved by the intro duction of tmcc plant forms starting from the col umns, and throwing out from each two leaves, 111 feet lung, crossing each other and extending to the skylight. Tills formation leaves n triangular space between the edge of tho maroon band nnd the point of Intersection of Hie two leaves. The tri angles, cigtit in number, are filled each with an Im mense flower, 7 feet II Inches across the top, rest ing on a gold background. From the opening of tho flower arise lour stamens and one pistil, The calyx is blue and tho corolla white. Thu flower springs from a rudimentary spntlicof maroon, Tho effect of the eight flow ered triangles is an octagonal star, losing its cor ners (n the crossing leaves. The spaces between tho large plants, which make the real field of tho cove, is deep coball-hluc, and hear minor designs of large leaves, falling opposite, and giving birth to two lateral and one central flower, between the cove and tho gallery ceiling Hie heavy lintel, supported by thirteen columns, Is of maroon, with n gold beau. The design uf Hie gallery veiling serves a dual purpose, affording ft distinct border for ench cluss-roum, ami still preserving the whole effect. The field is cobalt-bine, traversed at equal distances by maroon Imnds, which sustain elaborate borders ia red, brown, pink, and white. While the borders have the appearance of pcrplexliigcom pllcnlions, they are really exquisitely simple aud refined. The design Is a series of botanical farms, connected by a running-rout stalk. A casual glance fails to disconnect the field from the leaves, but study evolve* a plant of rare beauty unfolding graceful leaves, and supporting a white flower. The tops of Hio flowers produce along, broken white band, while the droop of the leaves lets the blue of the centres In to meet the red of the fluid, pruducfngslrikhig effects uf shape and harmonium* blendings uf culur. A change In the scheme of division intu apartments lias mili tated against elaborate decoration of tho walls, which are treated with great simplicity. TUB CHANCEL follows the same design. Thu central window Is the presentation of an open fiower lu a square, the corners tilted with rosettes. Thu square border Is of gold, enriched with Urge tlowers and leaven. Either side of the square Is another of deeper pat tern, which completes the chancel. The gallery front presents the most Interesting study of aIL It is the harmonizing of two dlllcr ent plants, each bearing a dower, and each Invert ing the colors of the other. Thu field is dark bine, the stalks arc light blue, and the (lowers pink and while. The intermediate design Is a pink btulk, and a green aud while ilowur. THEY. M, C. A. CONFERENCE OF TUB INTERNATIONAL EXECU- TIVE COMMITTEE. The conference of tba International Y. M. C. A. Executive Committee convened at 9:30 o'clock yesterday morning. In addition to attendance Wednesday, there were pres ent Messrs. D.W. Whittle, the Kev. Glen Wood, the Ucv. W. C. McDougall, C. J. Rldnmtsou, 8. H. Dyer, of this city, K. A. Burnell, Aurora; H. A. Oilman, Jacksonville; D. U. Holt, Evans ton, and W. J. Dyer, Bt. Paul. Devotional exercises were conducted by 11. W. Moore, of Somerville, after which the topic, “THE GENERAL SECRETARY and his Duties ’* was taken up. Mr. Mcßurucy, of New York, opened the discussion by a state ment of the work of the General Secretory. Mr. Meßurney huo been General Secretary of the New York Association for the past ten years, lie said the General Secretary ought to be con versant with all the work of the Association, but he ought not to do the work. He should know what tho Committees were doing, but ought nut to do the work of the Committees, lie should see that the Chairman of a committee did his work, hut ought not to do tho work of the Chairman. Tho General Secretary cun do only tho work of one mam und tie ought not to attempt to do the work of a hundred members, and If he attempts It he Injures the members. Ho Is better silting all day doing nothing than to be doing the work of the mem bers, and thus dwarfing them and Injuring their usefulness. The General Secretary should not have anything to do with providing ttic funds to carry on the work, nor should he have to collect the funds. Ho should not have to keep tho books, or carry on tho buaincss of the or ganization, but his Attention should bo engrossed with tho work of the organization, which In so largely spiritual, and which, in all Us tendencies, is In that direction, and pecuniary and business farts of the work Interfere loan extent with thin, le should be Interested In nu business outside of Ills position. He should have some time for rest, certain hours each day, and one day lu the week. A neglect of this unfits the man for successful work. He should be a diligent student of tho Bible for his own ilfo and growth In grace, and that ho muy help others. Ho should stimulate others to work. Sir. Vundarsdalc, of the Chicago Association, made a statement of tho duties of the Secretary of the Chicago Association. Tho discussion was continued in a general con versational way.

Gov. Smith, of Connecticut, spoke of his ex perience In a village largely of mill operatives, aud Clio success that attended tuelr effort. UR. UAVUNPOUT, OF Uiilß, said: '* We most bait our hooka fur the kind of fish we wish to catch; so we must vary our effort lu reaching different ehuece of men." He spoke of the railroad with its MO, OOO miles of road, with 800,000 moo, largely young men, often away from home, and tbo importance of reaching them. MR. HUUSHLL spoke of tmecew attending social effort In Janes ville, through effort of religious women of the city co-operating with the association. Mr. Hurneli gave a very hopeful report of the work iu Wis consin. MR. MILLER, OV CINCINNATI, •poko-of the success attending tho social effort In Cincinnati, New York, Uustou, ami Baltimore, and related a number of Incidents connected with different kind of sociables and entertainments In the different cities.

The need for bright, airy rooms, where freedom of Intercourse can be secured, where young men can talk and laugh and have a good social time, waa referred to. MU. UAKIUIt, Ok CONNECTICUT, •poke of the soda) feature of the work in New London and the success that has attended every effort. MR. MDNRALL, OP INDIANAPOLIS, spoke of the good accomplished by having ladles co-operating with the Association, and the great help they can bo In social effort. UNIPOKM rttATßll-MBBTINOS.

The topic •• flow to Secure the Co-operation of the Evangelical Ministry la Our Work M wus opened by Mr. Moore, uf Somerville, Wane. Ho spoke uf the importance of connecting with minis, lers, of getting into sympathy with them, and the initueiicc of prayer in removing diAculliee and obstacles. The importance of avoiding antagon ism waa pointed win. Wisdom and kindness would always win their sympathy, and love conquer all dliUculUca. Mr. Uarrls, of r ConnocCicut, spoke of tbolr experience in his State. Air. bpofford pro {munded some vucstloua which were answered iy Mr. Marshall, of Indiana, and MaJ. Whittle, of Chicago. The questions and ausweis were as to the Importance of union In evangellsta* efforts. Mr. Cree, of Philadelphia, spouu uf the hearty co-operation Mr. Halt and mtusdf had received from the ministers In the various titles In the booth during their visit the last winter, and tho earnest support they had given them la Ihu work. bOimiEUN WORK. The report upon International wurk In the South was tuadu by Mr. Cree, of Philadelphia., Ue gavu a report uf too tour of Mr. Hall and Idtuself through the Bonlheto BUtca. lie gave a hasty Tciuma ol ..dho,., eomlitJon. oX - xha.-Aamkiltw, Hon the South. At the beginning ofths work of the Executive Commlltee In the South vtcre wan hardly any orgnnltatton. The re £#>llo tour* of members ami representatives of the aent.ive Committee had secured Isolated organ!* raMon end developed some good Association men. When !r. Hall and! he undertook the work, the Held voa almost a new one. Thcv found mint of the clllea ready to receive them, ami minister* and Inym-u -endy to co-uncralo with them. Great re vival* *ifid followed their effort* at many point*, and many new Associations had been organized, and those already existing had been strengthened and gotten Into active work. Several ctfoctlve Stale organizations had been effected, nnd Associations hna been organised In most of the Important cltlo*, and the effect of Association work and lay activities resulting from It would have a good effect upon thu religious ac tlvltlea of the Smith. Mr. .Miller, of Cincinnati, cave a report of the State Conventions in Columbia. 8. C., Atlanta. On., and Huntsville, Ala., nnd made an earnest appeal for the sympathy nnd support of the Ex ecutive Committee in the great work that had opened to them, nnd whoso importance was only fully appreciated by those who nad vhitud the Held nnd mingled with the earnest Christian men en gaged In Association work In the South. Mr. Morse spoke of the effort that wan made to arrange for the organization of Christian Asso ciations among the colored young men of the South. Mr. Meldensat spoke of the work of the Execu tive Committee In tho West, and detailed briefly the work from Its Inception until the present time. ItAIUlOAI) WORK. Mr. Morse, of New York, gave a brief report of (Im railroad work among young men, and the work of Mr. Von Hlurahacn among the German speaking young men of the country. Mr. Wheeler reported tho effort malting to secure Mr. Von Slumhach. nnd thn desire among Germans to havo him continued In tho work. TUB COMMITTER AND STATB WORK. The topic “The Delation of the International Committee to the State Work," was opened by Mr. Mcllurncy. Hu said the g.owtli of thu Association had been from the International Committee out ward. Ten years ago, when the Executive Com mittee took charge of the work, there were sixty nine Associations—these weru doing very little work for young men. Ho then gave a hasty sketch of the progress and growth of correct Association Ideas. lie spoke of the organization of Associations In smaller towus, and thu need that called for such actions. State Conventions and Slate Committees grew out of the Increase In orgaglzatlon, and had been productive of Incalculable good. He presented tho needs of tho (leld, and tho call for renewed effort In the South, In the West, among railroad men. and among tier man-spcaklng young men, and tho need of funds as well as sympathy. uu. Moonr said ‘ ‘ I think the associations of America need learn ed Secretaries. We may atari all the Associations In the world, hut usually in the past they have died for want of n proper man for Secretary. Min isters and inerchnntH arc carefully trained for their profession*, and the general Secretary needs more tact than either of them, yet he Is sent into the work Ignorant of nit Its details mid require ments. If we had them, 101) good, trained Secretaries Could he put into good positions nt once, positions where they could command good salaries. In England we could gel all the money we wanted, but could not get men for Secretaries. Many Secretaries fall In reaching young muu, and their falling Is largely for want of training. We need training-schools for general Secretaries, and ihnd we such institutions, many young men now In business or professional life could after six months or u year bo put into Associations trained for the work. Home city ought .to take up this work. We don't want Evangelista for Secretaries, hut we want men who can reach young men. Many of those now com parative failures as Secretaries could, with proper training, be made efllclcnt." Air. McCormick said: "I am surprised to see the amount of talent that is dormant. I thank God that we have come together to talk of our fail ure* and successes. Let us thank God and take courage, all going to work. There is power in us. Let ns give It point.” Mr. Miller sang, “Oh, to he nothing, 1 ' and Mr. Moody offered prayer. Tho Rev. Dr. McCorklc pronounced the benediction. Mr. McCormick then announced that tho confer ence hod formally adjourned. COXGKEGATIOXAI.. THE OEKCIUI. ASSOCIATION OF IOWA. Special Dispatch to The Tribune.
