The Great Methodist Conference
NkwVouk, Jlay 2. The general con
ference of the Mthodi.st Episcopal church
opened ita session yesterday. Bishop
Bowman, senior bishop, presided and con
ducted tho exercises. The number of
ministerial delegates elected is 233, and
the number ef lay delegates 175. Among
the lay delegates are fix women, fcvery
stato and territory in the union is repre
sented, and there are delegates from Can
aday, Mexico, China, Japan, Africa, Italy,
German', Sweden, Norway, Switzerland
Bishop Bowman appointed tw com
mittees to consider the eligibility of wo
man delegates and foreign delegates,
against whom protests have been made.
The protests against women arc on th
ground that their admision implies and
compels a Titaluterpretatioi by this
body of a law not enacted by the general
conference alone, but which was ordained
by the constitutional process.

THE SCRAPER CONTEST.
Both Machines of Cood Merit and
Itefercnce was made in ur issue of
Monday to a content of road machines, to
be held near the city for the benefit of
our county commissioners who had at
one of their previous meetings byfefficial
action determined to purchase, baring
become convinced that there were
better methods of making reads than by
the old way with plow and scrapers.
Knowing that there were several food
machines in the market, they extended
an invitation to audi ns might see lit to
compete for the sale, to enter into a field
contest, the understanding to bo that the
commissioners .should buy the cie that
in their judgment, was superior and best
adapted to the wants of the county.
The manufacturers of the two machines
mentioned in Monday's issuf, viz: the
Austin Steel Keveisible and tho Western
Reversible, signified their intention of
entering the contest. The Austin Steel
machine arrived from Chicr.j-o on time
for the contest on Monday, the day ap
pointed, but it was not until Monday
evening that theWestrrn machine arrived
from Mt. Pleasant, Iowa, the machine
having previously been exhibited forwde
near Council Bluffs and then hauled
overland from there with teams. Owing
to delays, in making repairs, on the de
linquent Western machine, woik could
not be commenced till after noon. The
place selected for the contest was on the
hills this side of the poor farm. About
eighty rods of road was staked out
and one machine was givtn one side
and one the other side of the road, so as to
better exhibit and test the reyersible fea
tures of each machine. Here both ma
chines worked with no apparent differ
ence as to successful work. At about 4
o'clock the machines were taken to an
other place where the prairie 6od had
neyer been broken ami where the old
tracks in the road were badly washed
out into deep ruts, the object being to
better test their plowing ability. Here
the work was as evenly divided as possi
ble and lots cast, and both machines set
to work, separate and apart, and the re
sult was really wonderful. The machines
plowed in the tough sod with perfect
success, both doing their work well.
After the work was completed a disin
terested person was seat to pace the
length and width of each piece of work
and the result is that the Western Ma
chine's work was 32 rods long by an
average of 19 feet wide and the Austin
ijfeel Machine's work was 38 rods long
by an average of 22 feet wide audit
was plainly apparant that the Steel Ma
chins had moved considerably the most
dirt. The roads finished were
oval in form with a perfectly smooth
surface, and entirely settled the ques
tion of the desirability of implensents of
the kind for general road work. Four
horses on each machine wcro worked
till about the middle of the afternoon,
when an additional, team was added
making six horses on each machine.
The tima employed on the last allotted
piices of work was one hour. How
ever, the Steel machine made one and a
half rounds beyond that tine in leveling
the dirt in tho center of ths road.
The commissioners at their meeting
this morniag decided te- purchase two
machines of each make, paying the tamo
price there fer.
The Austin Steel machine is the more
durable, bsing of steel, while that of the
Wtst'jru is largely of wood; the Austin,
is more simple in its construction, and
lias na castings, while the Western is
more complicated, having ccnsielerablo
geariugand various castings w hich when
broken must be supplied frcm the manu
facturers' shops. The Austin is operated
by levers affording quicker action while
tba Western is operated by wheels, neces
sitating slower action of the blade. Th
Austin has a Ion rear axle s usseptabl
of being shiftud so that the extra ltugth
can be used on either side of the machine
rendering it better capable of turning the
dirt from deeper ditche3 to the center of
the road. The heft of tho Austin is low
down, while the Western is high, btinj
elevated on high bolsters with the gear
ing and castings still abovo that, thus
rendering it top heavy in working in
ditches and fteep side grades. The
wheels ef the Austin machine have a
wider tread and are of the Sarven patent,
costing more than those of the Western.
The blade on the Austin machine can be
adjusted to any cutting perpendicular
angle, and as its cutting edge wears off
can be lewereel accordingly, whereas the
blaele of the Western is bolted to the
beam and can not he lowered to retain
the proper curve ss the cutting eelge
wears off. The upper edge
of the blade on the Austin is intended to
be used as a cutting edge aud can be
sharpened at the same time, which saves
One xcrcePtae advantage the
Western machine hsd over the Aus
tin, wa3 in the manipulation of the re
versing of the blade; however, the blaele
of the Austin was reversed with perfect

were charged with robbery a few elnys

o'clock. As no cvielencc of any note

discharged. An explanation is certainly
due them as it appears all the trouble
came about by misrepresentation in some
way and just through malice of tome
parties. When the case came up this
morning aud the witnesses examined, no
evidence could be obtained which woulel
convict either of them.
