Charles Card well MeCabe, Earl Cranston and Joseph Crane Hartell were conse crated as bishops of the Meth.xiist Episcopal church at Central armory yesterday morning. There was an ioi mense congregation present, nearly every seat in the big auditorium being filled. The consecration was most im pressive. At 11 :10 a. m. the bishops of the rhuich, the bishops-elect and those as sisting in the ceremony filed ia and took their seats on the platform. Bishop Bowman, "the beloved senior bishop," who has served the church in that capacity since 1872. presided. The col lect was recited by Bishop Vincent, the rpietle was read by Bishop Thoburn and the gospel by Bishop Taylor. The Rev. L. D. McCabe, D. D., and the Rev. T.C. Iliaf presented Bishop elect McCabe; the Rev. D. L. Rader and the Rev. R. 8. Rust presented Earl Cranston; Joseph Crane Hartzell was presented by the Hev. M. C. B. Mason and the Rev. Samuel L. Berler. After prayer by Bishop Fitzgerald of New Orleans the examination and invoca tion was conducted by Bishop Andrews. It was a most solemn part of the service 'Every voice in the armory was hushed and every ear strained to catch the questions of the bishop and the answers of the candidates. Then followed the ".Hying on of hands" and the presenta tion of the Bible. The congregation sang a hymn and the benediction was pronounced by Bishop Foster. People nocked from all parts of the house to congratulate the newly made bishops, and the platform wag crowded for a long time with a surging crowd of enthusiastic Methodists eager to greet those who were to guid the destinies of a religious force which nuiuber over 3,000,000 souls. TUB DAY'S DOINOS. The general conference was presided over by Bishop Ninde ye-derday morn ing. The Judiciary committee reported and the conference acted upon a large number of appeals. Charles W. Price of Rusellville Cir cle, 0., convicted of lying, appealed from a derision of Bishop Bowman. The conference reserved the bishop's decision and ordered a new trial. When the celebrated Baltimore amendment was before the annual con ference the New York east conference refused to act on it and the coirfmittee recommended that no appeal be en tertained. A committee of five was appointed on complimentary resolutions. The committee on book concern want ed the conference to appoint a look editor, and it was so ordered. Lust night had been set aside for the anniverfary of the temperance work and the auditorium was decorated ac cordingly, a large banner inscribed "The Saloon Must Go," hanging at one end of the building. The decision ol the conference to hold an evening ses sion for business eptiled the plan for a great temperance rally, but the rules were suspended, and the first thirty minutes were given over to the tem perance organization. The regular order, the report of the committee on constitution, was then taken up. There was quite a long de bate over the manner of constituting special sessions of the general confer ence, the issue arising between those who held that for members of the pre ceding general conference to hold over and sit in the special session would be unconstitutional and 1Vose, who held that new members must lie chosen. The former prevailed and the article was adopted. There was a sharp debate over an attempt t give laymen equal rights with the ministerial delegates to pre side pro tern over a general conference In esse there is no bishop present to preside. One amendment looking to that end was tabled, but Dr. Buckley Introduced another and made a strong speech favoring the acknowledgment o( the laymen a rights to preside. Dr Neelev opposed the amendment and thought that no reference shoHld be made to the order from which the president pro tern should be selected. This view finally prevailed, the refer ence being stricken out and the section adopted. Adjourned. Ilrltlth liit l-onl. San Francisco, May 27. Shipping men believe the British bark Cam busdoon has been lost at sea. Khe left Java, carrying a cargo of sugar, for Vancouver January 23, and has not been sighted or heard from since. She has been out 145 days on a voyage Out should have been made in about ninety days, making her fifty-five days over due. She has now consumed much more time than was required for the longest trip on record from Java to Vancouver. The London underwriters have offeied 35 per cent for rednsurance on the bark and her cargo, which car Ties about $300,000 insurance. The Cambusdoon was commanded by Cap tain Macdonald and carried a crew of thirty men. Ikcata tha Kccord, London, May 27.

Francis Hermann beyond a reasonable doubt and alBO goes to show that Miss Samuelson fell a victim to the pastor's atanic actions and that be may also have bad other victims. The w rk of excavating the floor of the basement of the church began at an early hour yesterday morning. A 'vast h mount of eaJth was removed and quan tities of bone found in various stages of decomposition. iSome were plainly identified as human bones, others were in such condition that it was impossible to tell whether they were human or the bones of an animal, and others were plainly recognized as being those of cat tle and fowl. The general appearance of the place was such as to suggest the idea of a cemetery, and there is no tell ing how many human beings have been interred in the basement in the sacred edifice At a certain spot beneath the stairway, where the soil showed evi dence of having been recently dis turbed, the sole and hi el of a woman's shoe was found near the surface and a little deeper down in the same spot a pair of blood-stained overalls, w hich it is claimed by the tenants of the church were worn by their pastor while he was engaged in labratory and other work, separate and apart from his Wks. The overalls were blood-stained on al most every part. Ed Johnson, the young man whoso room was heated to such a high degree of tern perature the day the minister built the bigfl'e in the furnace, declares that Hermann had them on when the latter was met by him on the basement stairway w ith a gunnysack under his arm. He said he also wore a jumper of like material. All efforts to find this article of clothing were futile. Then came a piece of con firmatory evidence as to what became of it. The furnace ashes on being gifted were found to contain the requisite number of steel buttons for such an ar ticle of apparel and the strong point is that they correspond exactly with those on the blood-stained overalls. Whether the bones found jn excavat ing the ba-ement of the church include those of Miss Samuc'son, the other girl whom it would appear fell a victim to the pastor's lust and blood-thirstiness, cannot yet be detei mined. The search in the church and surroundings is not by any means yet concluded, and fur ther, discoveries can bo expected. It was learned that Hermann was crimi nally intimate with the Sumuelson girl and that he performed an abortion on her a few weeks before hei disappear ance, in January last. A few days prior to her disappearance the pastor had a Urge box ordered at one of the lumiier yards and some of the ollicers hold to the theory that the bones found in the chu'eh are too old to be those of a per son only dead since January, and that the preacher packed the remains in the box and either shipped it away or else took it along w ith him when he left for Kansas City on May 0.

Hermann drank heavily at times and kept a stock of wines and liquors in his study. The officers are keeping up the search in and around the church and the place baa been vl cited by thou sands of curiosity seekers. Dr. Meacham, w ho made an analysis of the strains upon the various articles found in the cellar, said that lie was not prepared to state that the stains were those caused by human blood owing to the fact that during the long period elapsed since tho jierpet ration of the deed the blood corpuscles had become contracted, making it a hard matter to distinguish it from the blood of animal', such as horses, doB, etc. Nevertheless he emphatically pro nounced the stains that he bail ex amined upon the lower doer of the fur nace and upon the barrel found in the cellar to be undoubtedly bloodstains.

A pall ot gloom and death hangs over the uounu ri'y. Twenty-four hours have scarce been sufficient to h.ing its people to I realization of the horror with which it has been visited and they are yet dazed and stupefied. Save for the fit fa! glare of the gas jets in the w indows of the saloons and restaurants and the electric lights of li e few hotels and other concerns that operate their own plants, the entire city is still in darkness. In the devastated districts the search for the dead buried in the ruins is being carried on with the aid of torches and locomotive bead lights. Details of police keep the crowds at a distance, while the air is filled rith the shrieks and sobs and hysterical lamentations of the bereaved. Ever and anon the clanging of a gong is heard in the distance, an 1 vehicles and street cars come to a etop while an ambulance dashes by to add one uioie victim to the record of the dead at one or another ot the extemporiist d morgues. The streets iu the centre of the city, iisu-illy active with pedestrians until midniiiht, a.-e deserted, ve for those whose avocations keep the.u!'from thuir families and friends, while the sum mer ga'dens and other poims 'of enter tainment are bare of patrons. Grief, mourning and stupefication have taken possession of tlie city. the fatalities. Careful tabulations of the informa tion gathered by the United press from all official sources shows that a 8 o'clock last night there were 114 victima that had been identified, while fifteen still await identification. Most of the bodies claimed have be.-n removed to their lati hoiiieg. T. e number of missing, the majority supposedly being in the ruins of toe industrial entablishmenta and residences that were totally demol ished, is variously estimated at from 50 to 600. Only a complete search of the acres of ruins can tell the true story, foi the people in the stricken region seem utterly unable to talk coherently. Men and women reported as among tue miss ing are continually putting in an ap pearance, while 011 the other hand many believed to he safe turn out to be among the mishing. In the matter of age the dead range from a male baby of three months to a great, great grandmother of ninety-two years. 1 he number of injured reported to police headquarters to the name hour foot up 1 St. Of these five are uncon scious and unknown, having nothing upon them by which they can be iden tified. The injuries range from slight cuts and contusions to one unfortunate man who is reported as having sus tained the loss of fx th eyes and the fiactu'e of skull, both arms and legs, and ribs. Of the list of injured, which is about one-fourth of the probable total, the over-whelming majority ol those caught in the tornado having found their way to their homes and thus escaped tho official reports, nearly one hundred are reported by the phy sicians in attendance as "fatally in jured" or "injured internally," which is practically the same thing. These figures relate to the city proper. IX KAST ST. LOUTH. On the otic r side of the river, in East 8t. Louis, 111., where the elements gathered themselves together for a su preme effort toward destruction of life and property, the latest reports to the United press place the total of deaths and missing at 205 and the injured at seventy-one. Another tabulation made last evening by the St. Louis Chronicle gives these figures: Identified dead in St. Louis, 1 "1; unidentified, 30; injured, 447. East St. Louis, identified dead, 129 ; unindentified, 125; injured, )58. The total number of families who are w ithout homes and whose every art cU of household effects was swept away by the storm is variously estimated at from 500 to 800. It will be several days before a complete and reliable ros'ei can be made. Estimates on local losses are so wild that it is impossible to give any author itative figures. One good authority places them at (it teen millions of dol lars ; another equally good at four mil lions. The latter is probably the mors correct.

Burdick of Columbia college was nominated by the committee on foreign missions to fill the vacancy in the foreign board caused by the resignation of E. M. Kingsley, treasurer of Union seminary. The re port on other matters was read yester day at tlie opening session of the gen eral assembly. Among other recom mendations the. committee proposed the following resolutions regarding the condition of Americans in Turkey: "Whereas, the general assembly is ad vised that under the provisions of exist ing treaties, American clergymen and teachers have a right to exercise their good efforts while residents of Turkey: and, Whereas, The assembly is further ad vised that American citizens now under appointment as missionaries in Tu.key have been and are now menaced as to their lives and property rights, despite representations heretofore made ; there fore, Resolved. That the general assembly, through its officers, respectfully re quests the national administration to examine into the facta of the alleged situation of affairs in Turkey, and in case the said averments of danger are well founded, to make an official repre sentation to the Turkish government, or take such appropriate action as shall secure proper protection to American citizens now resident in the Turkish empire." It was also recommended that $1,034, - 000 be rained by the church during the year and that the foreign board be ad vised to make its appropriations on that basis. Secretary Arthur 8. Brown of the foreign mission board spoke of the work of the board for the year. The resolu tion was adopted and at the close of the morning session the report on theologi cal seminary control was placed in the hands of the commissioners. ' The report is long and full of details. It embodies the now correspondence of the committee with the seminaries. It uives in full the several schemes for leg islative action desirable in each case to bring the seminary quarters into shape for the adoption by the board of trus tees of the plan of control, hese re plies are put into the form of an ap pendix, so that they may be read or not, as desired by the commissioners. The most Btart ling feature of the re port is clause three of the recommenda tion, wherein the entire committee asks the assembly for a discharge from 'urther service. There is no doubt that these recommendations at least, will be adopted, for it has been the hope of the trustees of many of the seminaries for three years that the activity of the sem inary control committee should control. The report of the committee on publi cation and Sunday school work waa considered during the afternoon and the usual resolutions adopted. The assembly committee on the next place of meeting, after considering, the claims of several cities, resolved to sub mit the claims of San Francisco and Petoskey, Mich., to the assembly for decision. MffthodlHtg Hubj. Cleveland, O., May 28. The featurs of yesterday morning at the general conference of the Methodist Episcopal church was the adoption of the resolu tion providing for an immense church insurance company to compete with tha great companies of tho world. The ses sion was exciting, and confusion reigned all the morning. General Rusling said that the propo sition was one of the most visionary matters that had yet been presented to the general conference. "We mighl just as well embark in the dry "goodi business," he said. "The whole scheme if adopted, will wind up with a scandal which will shake the very ioundatiom of the great Methodist church." Other delegates expressed similai opinions, but the res olution organizing an insurance company was adopted auiid great enthusiasm, It was decided that the question of location of the next general conference be left to the book committee. The Christian endeavor society wat given a final slap by the adoption of I report deprecating the organization o any societies of Christian endeavor ia the MethodiBt church. In the report of the judiciary conn mittee a preposition to give to th presiding elder of a district power ts. say when and where the trial of an ac cused member shall be held, excited much debate. The clause relating taj this matter was atricken out ond th4 report was adopted. The conference then adjourned until 7:30 p. m. Uoid atrlku. Ditadwood, S. D., May 28.
