told he would have to give 30 days'
notice before lie could get his money.
Yesterday another effort was made
by Ifctvviu to get funds but the de
positors who appeared were few and
the deposits were chielly in trivial
amounts. Today Iowie asked the
lueiiiUrrs of Zion more urgently than
ever for moiiev. He declared that he

In the efforts to remedy the condi

of letters were sent out daily to

that the employees of the manufac

week before last I low ie made a trip
through the various shops, lie told
his followers and others that they
must either wait for their salaries or
must endure a substantial cut in
wages. This was agreed U).

deputy marshals, went out to Zion

running from the bank, shouting:'
"let me have those papers ; t will

threatened to plan them under ar

placed the bank, and the three men

Appeals to His Followers to Raise
Chicago Dtiati'h, aril.
A great gathering of the Howieites
was held at the taWnacle in Zion
City last night. It was called by
Howie for the purpose of starting a
fund of $1,0110,000 with which to
pay off all the indebtedness- that
hangs over Zion Cilv and himself.
The outpouring of his followers was
not one to bring chirr to the heart, of
the general overseer of Zion. Thfl
Uitx macle seats 6,000 people and
usually all these seats are taken at
special niwetings called by IViwio.
1 ast night the hall was not over half
lilled and tire gathering was not as
enthusiastic as might be desired by
a man who was in immediate need of
funds. Howie gave to his followers
a statement of the financial situation
of Zion City, told them that the as
sets were ample, the only trouble
being that he was not able to realize
upon them at once.
"The fiesh pots are the cause of
our coming here tonight," he said.
"They are a joke to me. For an
hour the dogs have thought they led
me. Hut, beloved, we are going to
kick them out now. We will kick
them out for all eternity.
"Those devilish parasites, the re
porters, came to me today. They
wanted to know what I would say to
you tonight. Did they learn from
Cries of "Ko, no." "
"I tell you we will run them out
of Zion. I knew they were coming
before they attempted to pollutp
Zion. 1 knew it by the stench that
came ahead of them "
It is declared by the receivers for
Zion City that the affairs of Dowie
are in a worse condition than at first
appeared. Itcceiver Curric said to
night : "I believe that Dr. Dowie will
be able to pay off his obligations in
time. Just bow long this time will

Most Trying Feature of the War.
"How would you like to bundle up
and start to the war as we did forty
years ago?" said Mr. Jas. A. Marsh
to an old Confederate comrade the
other day. "When I left my wife
and two-year-old boy," he continued,
"to start on the journey there was a
peculiar feeling of sadness that no
one can comprehend who has not ex
perienced it. Men may draw upon
their imagination and think they
know how it would be, but in in
stances of this kind the imagination
fails, and a man doesn't know how it
is until he tries it." This parting
with dependent loved ones at home
to go into a deadly conllict, the un
easy feeling about the comfort of
wife and children, the uncertainty of
ever seeing their faces again, made
such parting scenes the saddest and
most trying feature of the war, and
it is natural that in their rcllcctioiis
these scenes come more vividly to
the minds of the old soldiers than

Xo estimates are given of the
amount of cotton remaining un
ginned. The census agents were
asked to submit these estimates, but
the census bureau has not even com
puted them as returned, turning
them over to the bureau of statistics
of the Department of Agriculture to
aid that office in the annual estimate
of the cotton crop to he issued to
morrow. The reason for this as an
nounced by the census bureau, is
that when the final reor!s were re
ceived a year ago "it apeared that
the estimates of the agents made in
(t,.iber were six and four-tenths
ht cent, short of the actual crop
grow n." A margin of error so large
as that is equal to the difference le-
tween a short crop and a normal
crop and under Ihe pivuliar condi
tions existing in two cotton markets
today, the census bureau does not
feel warranted in publishing any fig
ures in winch so large an element of
error may exist again. 1 he policy
