Omaha wins.
The Kansas City people wore easy victims
In the game yesterday , which was witnessed
by 0,750 , people , actual count , and what a
t * contest It was , to bo sure.
" The home team came to bat and went out
with that remarkable celerity for which they
nro so justly celebrated on certain occasions.
Then Cartwright of Kansas City hit to Miller -
lor , who fumbled , and the ox-section man
reached first. "Banana" Campau hit to
O'Coiinod ' and ho likewise fumbled nnd Cart-
Wright ran down to second nnd tried to get
homo , but was put out at the plate , which
made him tired. Hassamncr hit bard to
right und Campau scored ,
Kansas City 1.
Then Burns and Doran went out nt first
nnd Shannon picked up his willow , tit-wil
low stick , nnd hit the ball way over among
the carriages for a homo run , but some
chump with more ngtllty than good sense
picked it up and throw it to "Dago" Campau
nnd Shannon only mndo three bags , owing to
n ground rule made before the 'game , which
compelled a man to take what ho could got ,
nnd no more. But Wilson mndo a hit and
Shannon scored , after which Miller Hew out
to Hassamacr.
Neither sldo scored in the third.
In the fourth O'Conncll ' hit to Ardner.who
fumbled. Then Burns went out on a foul tip.
Dorun made a hit and O'Conncll crossed the
piece of marble across which the pitcher
throws balls. Doran actually stole second
and was left there , Shannon and Wilson
going out.
. Omaha 2.
Then Hnssamcr hit to O'Connell.who again
fumbled. Hassamer got second on Ardncr's
hit nnd scored on a two-baso hit by Manning ,
which also brought in Ardncr. Then Johnson
dud Swartzel went out.
, Kansas City 4.
But at this juncture something struck the
Omaha team , or the Omaha team struck
something , for Miller mndo a hit to right. A
hole in Clarke's bat prevented him from hit
ting the ball , and then Thomas Lovett , Esq. ,
inudo a hit which sent the corngrinder to
second. Then Father Annis made a two-
bagger nnd Miller and Lovott came In.
Then O'Counoll made a two-bagger nnd
Annis scored. Burns made a hit aud O'Con-
nell scored , Doran made a two-bagger and
Bums scored. That was all. Do'ran went
out at third , and Wilson struck out.
Omaha 7.
In the sixth both sides wore kalsoinlncd.
In the seventh Annis came to bat , feeling
very tired , having made his first error this
season in the previous Inningby muffing Ard-
ner's fly in the yellowest manner possible ,
and rapped out a double : O'Connell hit to
Urodloy , who muffed his fly , and Annis went
to second on the error. Then old man Burns
made a hit and Annis scored. Subsequently
Doran was hit by the ball and Shannon made
a two-bngger , nnd everybody but the hist
named gentleman scored. Wilson tore a gap
In the atmosphere. Miller made u hit and
Shannon scored , after which Clark aud
Z Iiller went out on a double.
Omaha 12.
In the eighth Lovott made a hit and scored
after Annls went out on a hit by O'Counoll ,
Who was put out nt third. Burns , Doran and
Shannon were loft sitting on bases by Wil
son's out on a foul tip. Kansas City blanked.

by attending the Western association
championship game. To turn his simple delight -
light into rapture the nine maroon legged
ball players kept the Minneapolis boys down
to one run and piled up nine themselves.
Only three base hits could Minneapolis got
off Dwyer , and the one run secured was
made oft a fly which Moriarity mutTod as ho
etruggled through the mire. Long made a
queer but sharp play In the seventh , when ho
Btruok nt a wild ball purposely and reached

Scrmo New Conlrlrnticc For Instruc
tion nnd Amusement.
CHICAGO , Juno 3. [ Special Telegram to
Tnn DEE. ] It looks ns if Wizard Edison has
'or some time been expecting that ho would
mvo to provide playthings forallttlo girl ,
for now , just after the arrival of a beautiful
ittlo daughter , comes the news that Edison
las invented n talking doll. This is n most
icrfcct mechanical device , it is wax , of
jcautif ul workmanship , the jaws are hung so
naturally that ono unacquainted with the
fictitious character of the doll would imagine
ihat they belonged to a genuine flesh and
blood infant. The body of tbo doll contains
a miniature motor and the smallest phonograph
graph ever mado. The phonograph aud the
laws are worked simultaneously and the
fictitious infant talks for Just ono minute by
Edison's golden chronometer. Of course the
human volco is reproduced and this doll will
slog , speak , lat'gh and cry as if alive. Edison
lias also made a clock that says ono o'clock.
Lwo , etc. , as the case may be. Edison said
that Prof. Murybridgc , the Instantaneous
photographer , had visited him lately and had
proposed to him n schema which , if carried to
completion , will afford nn almost end
less field of instruction nnd amuse
ment. The photographer said that ho had
been conducting ] a series of experiments
recently and had almost perfected a photo
graphic appliance by which ho would be en
abled to accurately reproduce gestures and
Facial expression of , for nn instance , Mr.
Blaine in the act of making a speech. This
was tionc. ho sold , by taking some sixty or
seventy instantaneous photographs of cacli
position assumed by the speaker , then throw
ing them by means of a magic lantern upon a *
screen. Ho proved to Edison that the phone
craph should bo used in connection with his
Invention ; that photographs of Edwin Booth
as Hatnlot , Lillian Husscll in some of her
songs , nnd other artists of note should bo ex
perimented with. Edison , ho said , , could
produce with his instrument the tones of the
voice , while ho would furnish the gestures
and facial expressions. The scheme mot with
the approval of Edison , aud ho intended to
perfect it at leisure.

TEE BP.E.J The trial of Ann Odclia Solomon ,
Luther Marsh's deposed spiritualistic me
dium , and General Diss do Barr will be begun
Monday in the court of general sessions.
Judge Glldersocvo will preside. It is not ex
pected that very much time will bo consumed
in selecting a jury. A peculiar fact which
will probably come out on the trial forms a
connecting link between Colonel Jim Fisk
and Ann Odelia in 18C9 and 1SH ) . She was
.lien of attractive form and pleasing fea
tures. She had left her life of shame and
was stopping for a few days at a residence on
Second avenue , between Twenty-fourth and
Twenty-fifth streets. The third day Jitn
Fisk drove up to the house with his splendid
rig nnd Ann Odelin drove oil with him. She
was heard of from time to time , but she did
not rctum. The madame and General Diss
de Barr will bo tried on the indictment for

CIIESTOK , la. , Juno 3. [ Special Telegram
to Tun Bnn. ] Charles Shrcovcs , n hard
ware merchant of Murray , killed Lon Wiars ,
a fanner living nt Orient , nine miles north
of here , nt 11 o'clock last night. Their quar
rel grew out of Wiars' objection to Shreoves ,
inlying attention to his sister , and Wiars hail
dared him out to fight. After they had been
out u short time Shrceves returned to town
and sent a physician to Wiurs , whom ho saiu
was hurt. Wiars was brought home , where
ho died in a few minutes from the effects of
thirteen stabs inflicted with a knife.
Shrceves mndo no attempt to escape and
claims that ho killed Wiars in sell-defense.
He is of good family and has borne a hith
erto good reputation. Wiars had been drink

WASHINGTON , Juno 3. [ Special to THE
BEE. ] Consul General Kennedy has sent
to the fttato department from ills post nt
Shanghai , Cliicn , some interesting observa
tions about Chlneoo customsHo pays
special attention to the province of"lClbg-Su.
Ho soya that a complete network of canals
and nnvagabFo streams , exists , throughout
this province In such ix way as to itiako n
complete system of intcrcommuulcatioti by
boats , the same as exists at Venice , Italy.
Every three years a census is supposed to betaken
taken , and the local officers make n preten
tious effort toward doing the Vt'ork. A cor-
tlflcntc is posted on every door , on which
should bo written the name of orory inmate ,
tholr ngo , and their occupation. A report Is
transmitted through the provincial authori
ties to the capital. The system is not honest
ly carried out , the tendency being to
exaggerate , and the true certificates
are often filled in according to
the census-taker's own opinion of what It
should be , thus saving him the labor of veri
fication. Everything oniclal is done , as far
as possible , by casual observance. The bust-
"ness of thts provinces has greatly Increased ,
however , the cities having a busy look , the
cauals and rivers being crowded with boats
and the fields presenting scenes of rural ac
tivity and industry. The Kiang-Su fanner
docs not turn up his soil deeper than eight or
ten inches , but ho labors with this thin cov
ering of earth pcrsovoringly , and in the
course of twelve months , in some instances ,
five different crops are obtained. The farmer
usually cultivates two or three acres of land.
Successful farmers may acquire inoro land
than this , but their ambition docs not lead
them to it. They prefer renting.
* #
There nro no fences , writes Mr. Kennedy ,
in this jiUrt of China. Boundary stones
inark the different holdings , yet disputes
over boundary lines are no less frequent
than in other parts of the world. The sys
tem of dividing the province fhto depart
ments and districts and rcdivlsions of dis
tricts extends until the Tu is reached , which
includes but a small section under the super
intendence of an ofllccr called a tl-pau. He
keeps a record of the land transfers nnd re
ports them to the magistrate of n district ,
who grants title deeds. He holds his ofllco
for a year , it being the custom to rotate the
ofllco nniong the responsible men of the
section. When n piece of land is
sold a conveyance is drawn up and signed by
the principals and also by several friends nnd
brokers who lend their services to the nego
tiation which Is never conducted between
buyer nnd seller alone. These middle men ,
as they are called , receive a small commis
sionand the ti-pau exacts about 5 per cent of
the purchase money for his fees ; but the
parties often conspire to defraud him by
naming a smaller sum in the conveyance
than is actually stipulated. While theoreti
cally all the land of China is the emperor's ,
nnd his subjects may do no more than rent it ,
yet they buy nnd soil land freely. A father
may leave n quantity of land -which is to bo
divided between two sons , and to avoid the
oxpousc of securing separate deeds they cut
the original deed diagonally in two parts , the
the half being recognized as a good title to
one-half the original lot.
The Chinese system of planting and culti
vating cotton strikes any one accustomed to
our methods in the southern states us ex
tremely crude. The seed Is sown broadcast
in among small grain crops about the months
of March or April , or sown broadcast if
planted by itself. When the wheat or oats
are cut the small plant can'then b o seen. In
either case , when it gets six or eight inches
hlghfrom time to time , as it is growing ,
they pour or sprinkle over the beds liquii
manure. I may remark that all of their
crops are planted m beds rounded off from
the top to a water furrow on eacli sido.
They hoe in among it the best they can ap
parently without thinning it out. It is as
thick almost ns small grain. The stalks
rarely attain n height of more- than two nnd
one-half to three feet on land rich .enough
naturally ( and very richly fertilized besides )
to produce under our system n heavy bale to
the acre. The stalks are spindling and the
balls nro so small that it will
jake from forty to fifty of them to
make a pound of seed cotton , while they will
not average more than six to the stalk. The
cotton is rather dingy in color and of very
short staple. They never use a plow in its
cultivation , and when preparing the soil turn
it up with wooden plows , the pattern of
which is as old , I presume , as the days of
Confuctous. The experiment of using'Ameri
can feed has been tried , I am informed , but
without much better results than in the case
of their own seeds , but the reason of this can
bo readily accounted for in their system of
planting and cultivation. They gin their
cotton on n gin worked by a pedal , which ,
while very crude , yet seems to pound the lint
off the seed pretty well. An American hand
gin ought to take well , nnd some of our in
genious mechanics should Invent one that
would answer the purpose. The gin works
on the principle of a clothes wringer , with
the exception that the rollers are iriada to revolve -
volvo In opposite directions. The cotton is
wound through and the seeds squeezed out as
they meet the pressure caused by the rollers.
The Chinese have n very limited supply of
timber. Such as they make use of in build
ing is from small and inferior stuff , ana is
sawed up by hand. They make good bricks ,
which form the universal building material.
After the burning process readies a certain
stage thp piles are flooded with water , ana
In this way the bricks are turned out a grey
color , The roofs are usually made of tiles ,
nnd nearly every province- has its own style
and size of bricks and tiles. The latter are
nmJo in a very simple manner. Clay is
plnsterc * around the sides of a tub evenly
and then acoiod oft into the desired slzca.
They nro baked the sauio way as the bricks.
The houses occupied by the masses uro
small and flimslly constructed. This is
not duo to their inability to build well ,
but to their poverty , which may appear
Inconsistent with the industrious and simple
habits of these people , hut it is ope of. the
many paradoxes of China. Their bridges
ana temples and the walls of their cities give
evidence of their skill in building and engi
neering , but tno tendency to hudalo together
in villages and cities ana the dread of ap
pearing to bo possessed of wealth prevents
any departure from the rule of cramped , uncomfortable -
comfortable and unhealthy dwellings.
Throughout this province it would bo hard
to find a farmer's ' dwelling thut would bo
considered good enough for a plg.pen with
us. A wooden floor is a rarity , and with all
that is sola about "feng-shui , " or lucky loca
tion , it would bo hard to find a single house
in central China where any attempt of a sun-
itary nature exists. No building is construct
ed without certain divinations which have ref
erence to auspicious days , and are a part of
the absurd series of practices which come
within the term of "fcng-shui. " This term
literally translated moans wind and water ,
and it is claimed that originally the Chinese
had a regard for sites favorably situated in
respect to wind and water , which during
centuries has degenerated into superstitious
rites by which the fiends of the air may bo
tbartcd. There is no doubt that the miser
able dwellings of the Chinese cause the great
number of diseases and Buffering they en
dure. With a malarial cHiuate to begin with ,
and utter Ignorance of the principles of the
laws of health , the result could not bo other
wise than u race of comparative physical In
feriority. Malarial complaints are of , great
variety , und where tno pronounced forms
may not be visible- there exist dull , enervat
ing symptoms , unfitting people for any more
work thau will sufUco to keep body aud soul
together , and no doubl lead to the opium
habit , the curse of China.
1 he pages In the prcsent hou e of represen
tatives say they have had nu" ° ° harvest
during the scIon making up autograph
books. Strangers who come hero nnd people
nt a distance emplmvihcso boys to procure
the signatures of members in outogrnph
books , and pay them .from * 10 to $25 for their
work. It takes n toy1 about ti week , during
his leisure moments' , ti ) procure the names of
nil the members in the houso. Soma of the
boys hnvo manipulated shrewdly , nnd when
they go about with pno autograph book they
carry three or four , procuring as many copies
of the member's autograph at the sauio time
The other day I w s amazed to see a sign
hung up on the wall facing the door at the
southwest cntrnncdte the house ; n notice
which read like this :
"Fac-slmllcs sf member * ' autographs made
nttho card-writer's stand In the lobby. "
A page told mo that this card-writer , who
looks like cx-Congrcsiman Wellborn , of
Texas , has worked the matter of imitating
members' autographs down so line that ho
can fill out nn autograph book In n couple or
three hours , nnd make it ns satisfactory to
the stranger ns ono procured by the pages at
the expense named nbovo. The card-writer
will wrlto these autographs for about 80 per
cent of the cxpcuso necessary to procure a
book of genuine autographs.
It Is n custom among a large class of pco
plo throughout the country to collect auto
graphs , und the never fall to .preserve the
names of senators and representatives and
government oillclals who have the franking
privilege. Therefore , public documents re
ceived by these people nro from public- mon
nro a two-fold blessing : the document
is appreciated , aud the wrapper in
which it comes contains the autograph
of a senator. These people will ho interested
in learning that , on an average , not more
than once in a hundred times Is the signature
of the olllcial written by his own hand whore
it is used as a frank. Clnrks do the work.
There are senators who nro sending out
bushels of documents every week , using
their franks a hundred times n day , who do
not write their names for the franking privi
lege twice a month. Their private secretar
ies do it. I hnvo no doubt that there arc
thousands of people who have In their scrap
books pasted the autographs of public men
written by the clerks or secretaries of the
ofllclals. The recent amendment mndo to
the franking privilege permitting the use of
rubber stamps In producing fao similes of
the autographs , will make it almost impossi
ble for the recipient of public documents to
procure a genuine autograph.
The speech of Senator Stewart of Nevada ,
in favor of his proposition to limit the veto
power of the executive , has attracted wide
spread attention since it was delivered. It
has been commented upon , criticised and
abused In all sections of the country , nnrt yet
it is but the preliminary movement of what
promises to bo a very formidable ono toward
clipping the chief magistrate's claws , nnd de
priving him of some portion at least , of what
has proved to bo n powerful prerogative. It
Is argued , and with good effect , that when
the constitution made the president of the
United States a co-ordhmta branch of the
legislative government , the idea was not that
his judgment should bo , set up in opposition
to a majority of both houses of congress , but
it was designed that ho should have n super
visory power , and that the veto should bo
used solely to prevent violations of that bul
wark of American liberty , the constitution
of the United State ? . The growing fre
quency with which tjiefivoto power has been
used in the lastfiftysroars , ana the extremely
liberal sprinkling of-veto messages which
the present chief oxcfculivo has seen fit to put
upon the country , fihjf led to a more wide
spread desire than p\'cr before existed for
the curtailment ofJus power. President
Cleveland vetoes , iiKmany cases , have been
condemned by his jm'rty leaders in the house.
But unfortunately thftsb allies uro dependent
upon the chief magistrate for political pnp
aud official patronage * They realize that
the mind of the man whom they have made
chief magistrate of tJiis nation is of such
small caliber that ho would resent personally ,
any official dlfferencj ifl opinion between his
own views and those of his party associates.
They realize , too , that -in giving a vote de
signed to aid in over-riding the president's
veto each individualinember lays himself
liable to the ill-will of the chief magistrate ,
nnd they know that the ill-will of this man
may , and frcquentlyfjoe8amouiit ; to politi
cal ostracism. For this reason it is the most
difficult thing in the world to secure enough
votes on the democratic side to join with the
republicans to set nsido the executive disap
proval to any bill , no matter how meritori
ous the measure may bo in itself. While it
is extremely improbable that Senator Stew
art's proposition to give to the majority
of congress the power to over-ride
a veto will bo ready to submit to
the people just yet , the tituo will
surely come when a majority of congress
will bo able to enact such legislation as may
bo desired in spite of the disapproval of
the self-constituted censor of all congres
sional acts.

thick and practically pure. The drill was
sunk 1,100 feet , and not far from the salt
passed through a twenty-seven inch vein of
coal of splendid quality. This well Is to bo
sunk 2,000" , feet or more to find gas , nnd test
wells will bo drilled over n largo area to
determine the extent of the coal deposit.
The Oouinlock Salt company , of Warsaw ,
N. Y.f was the first to commence the manu
facture of salt here. Their works were
planned to produce COO barrels per day , but
owing to the brlno being stronger than at
any eastern works , the output is considera
bly greater than anticipated , The next com
pany to sink a well and erect buildings was
the Wyoming Salt company , composed of
four partners , also from Warsaw , N , Y. ,
where two ol the partners still manufacture
salt. They struck salt at 450 feet , and found
the bed to bo over 300 feet thick. Ca
pacity , 1,000 barrels per day. These people ,
under the name of Hawley salt company ,
took the first premium on suit used in butter
at the Missouri State fair at St. Louis , 1887 ,
and ut a display and test of American salt for
general uses at the Chicago Fat Stock and
Dairy show , 1687. But they assort that the
natural salt here is as valuable ns any of the
eastern refined. Henry Hogwor , nn old citi
zen of this place , will in a short tiiuo com
mence making gait in another .part of the
city. Ho contracted for n well 750 feet deep ,
nnd struck the rocly Rt a aopth of 403 feet.

the same results. Tliteo are In various di

surrounding country , Utia depth of 400 to 475
feet , being 300 feet fn thickness. The area
thus testsd includes apout six or eight square
miles. -

NEW Yonic , .Tuno 3. [ Special to Tnr.
BBB. ] While the conference pauses briefly
in its arduous work , preparatory to .
final adjournment , and repairs to Uiversiio
to strew flowers on the tomb of Grant , whom
it recognized by a resolution , ns not
only the greatest military chieftain , but
as a time Methodist besides , a good opnor-
tunity is afforded to summarize and review
the accomplishments of the body. In general
terms it may bo truthfully said that for the
spirit of independence shown , { or the supe
rior character of the men placed in office ,
for the mighty debates sustained , for the
radical changes made , and for the quantity
no less than the quality of the business
brought before it , this conference has had no
cciual in Methodism since the memorable
gathering in this city forty-four years ago ,
when the split occurred on the subject of
Not less than a thousand petitions and
memorials have been considered by the body ,
nnd upon at least a hundred of these have
the great committees ground out some sort
of a report. It is only a pity that all of
these reports cannot bo acted upon , but so
much time was spent at the opening on the
woman question , nnd so much more was
occupied last week in the elections , while the
brethren now seem so anxious to adjourn ,
that such a consummation is not 'possible.
The episcopal office remains as it was , not
withstanding all the effort ? made to modify
it. It is still an office , not an order , the pres
ent conference confirming this by an indirect
vote as emphatically as fn express terms
the same view was adopted by the last con
ference. The tenure , moreover , is still for
life , and this , by the way. applies also to the
missionary bishops , who have been declared
by the conference to bo of the same standing
with the ethers , excepting that their field is
limited. To Bibhop Taylor in Africa has now
been added Bishop J. M. Thorburn , whoso
diocese will comprise India and Malaysia.
Both these get their pay from the Episcopal
fund , and Bishop Taylor gets his back pay
of § 12,000 from that fund technically , al
though the episcopal fund is reimbursed for
tills outlay from the missionary treasury.
Bishop Mallalleu has been appointed to
visit the European conferences this year ,
and will leave for Europe on Saturday. The
episcopal residences uro left ns they wore ,
only , of course , with additions to accommo
date those nowi.v elected. The new places
added are Philadelphia , Omaha , or Lincoln ,
and the state of Texas. A noticablo feature
m the election of the bishops is that two of
those clioson came directly from the pastor
ate , and that another was a pastor up to a
year ago. This is a now departure. In the
four elected by the last conference not ono
was from the pastorate , and only 0110 of the
four elected in 16SO held that relation. This
change will tend to exalt the pastoral rela
tion , itinee. it shows that one may remain in
this restricted sphere and still bo in the line
of promotion to high office.
The church press is another institution
which remains as it was , excepting that the
paper for young people , called Our Youth ,
is to bo made more distinctively a Sunday-
school paper. To the editorship of this nnd
the other Sunday-school publications of the
church , the position so long hold by Bishop
Vincent , the Hov. J. I * Burlbut , long an able
assistant in this work , has been promoted.
The editorship of the Hoviow , made vacant
by the death of Dr. Curry , is filled now by
Dr. J. W. Mcndenhall of Ohio. Dr. Albert
succeeds the lamented Marshall W. Taylor
OB editor of the Southwestern Advocate , and
the other editors were all ro-elccied , as also
were all the book agents. The only election
bv acclamation was thut of tin venerable Dr.
William Nast to the Apologibt , a position ho
has held for forty nine years. The Methodist -
ist Advocate of Clmttatioogo , formerly an independent -
dependent paper , is now made a regular or
gan of the church , with a liberal appropria
tion , and Dr. T. C. Carter is continued as its
In the great church societies the changes
nro more numerous. The Krecdmen's Aid
is now the Freedmen'a Aid and Southern
Educational society , and this change , it is
supposed , will enable the society to carry on
its white WOI-K in that section with less prob
ability of interference on the part of the
colored people. The venerable Dr Uust. the
father of this society , was thought to hnvo
deserved an honorary retirement , and the
actual management will icst hereafter with
Dr. J. C. Hartzell , formerly Dr. Uubt a as
Another veteran placed in the same hon
orary relation is Dr. J. M. Hold , long the
chief secretary of the missionary society Dr
U. C. McCabe succeeds to Dr Hood's posi
lion , and the other corresjxmdlng Bocrutarica
are iiowmen , namely , Dr. A. H. Leonard , of
Ohio , aud Dr , J. O. Peck , of Now York. The
educational society is enlarged In its scope
somewhat , and Dr. C. H. I'ayue becomes its
secretary , succeeding in that position Dr.
Goodsoll , ono of the now bishops. The only
other change Is that the church extension so
ciety adds to its loon fund nn annuity fund.
It will , however , greatly delight the
church to know that a new society has boon
formed for the special benefit of conference
claimants. Heretofore the worn out
preachers and the widows and orphans of
deceased ministers have had to depend for
their allowances upon what could ho raised
for them in their own conferences , the result
being , that while none have received nearly
so much as they deserved , some have got
much more than others because belonging to
conferences better nblo to give. Under the
new arrngemcnt the allowances will bo nt
once more ample and more equal. This
general society will bo managed by n board
of control , consisting of ten ministers and
ten Invmcn. with a corresponding secretary
and all the bishops. It is proposed to raise
a largo permanent fund by bequests and
otherwise , the interest of which will bo
divided among the annual conferences to
supplement their own collections for this
Some changes arc also to bo noted in the
conferences. It is very likely , owing to the
legislation of tills body , that the next general
conference will have in it ns many represent
atives of the laity as of the miniatry , and that
among the lay delegates will bo a fair
sprinkling of women. Upon both these prop
ositions , however , the annual conferences
have yet to vote. The action of the confer
ence in refusing to accord seats to J. M. Phil
lips , of New York , and ex-Governor Patti-
HOII , of Pennsylvania , who had been elected
lay delegates respectively from Mexico and
India , establishes the principle that lay con
ferences can bo represented in the general
conference only by bona lido residents nnd
members in their territory. Formerly it
took only fifteen to constitute an annual con
ference ; now twenty are required , but mis
sion conferences nro provided for , which are
to have nearly all the powers of annual con
ferences , and which may consist of any num
ber less than twenty.
Enabling acts have boon passed by the
body providing that the Denmark mission ,
the Aiizona mission , the AVyoming mission ,
the California German mission , and the Ne
vada mission , may become annual confer
ences , when they have the number of minis
ters required. Such acts wore also passed to
enable Louisiana , with West Nebraska , Cen
tral German and Washington conferences to
divide ; also to enable the Kansas and South
Kansas conferences to lift the boundaries
separating tucm , and the Michigan aud De
troit conferences to become four instead of
two bodies if they find it practicable.
Touching the much debated question
of what the constitution of the
general conference Is , a commis
sion of seventeen 1ms been appointed to con
sider the matter , aud report to this body four
years hence.
The greatest change in the pastorate is the
extention of the term to five years. Many
think that there are conditions attached to
this extension , but the fact Is that there are
no other conditions attaching to the five year
than attached formerly to the three year
limit. To equalize matters an addition lias
also been made to the term of presiding
elders. This term Is extended from four
years to six , and though the conference pro
vided that an elder may not preside more
than six years over the same distrlctuntil ho
has been away from it six , it refused to say
that a man having served six years on a dis
trict may not bo immediately appointed , at
the discretion of tuo bishops , to some other
This extension of the term of presiding
elders was opposed very strongly by some ,
but It prevailed at last by oven a larger ma
jority proportionately than the motion to ex
tend the term of the paHtoratc , the feeling
being that it was necessary In order to the
nropur supervision of the work that the alder
bo allowed to stay at least a year more than
the pastor.
The changes affecting the membership of
the church nro both few und trivial. Perhaps
the most radical is the establishment of the
Order of Deaconesses. This was for the
especial benefit of the good sisters , and a * a
further proof of the fact that the women nro
having matters much their own way tlicso
days , it is worthy of note that the conference
voted finally to allow all members of the
church over twenty-one years of ago , female
ns well as male , to vote upon the question of
whether women should not bo admitted to
the general conference. It also established
the following uniform order of worship : I
Hymn , the people standing ; prayer , minister I
and people kneeling , closing witn the Lord's J
prayer in concert ; lessons from the Old and
New Testament , either ono of which may bo
read responsively ; hymn ; sermon ; brief
prayer ; singing , to end with the doxolojry ,
and the whole to conclude with tuo apostolic
The action of the body on the subject of
temperance and iirohihitlon was , as cvorvono
anticipated , fully up to the standard of
former conferences , and , if anything , aslluht
advance was icgislercd. After the adoption
of the regular resolutions , which wore quite
ns stiong as they could bo made , it was pro
posed to take further action providing for the
retention in the discipline of a certain deliv
erance on this subject which was objection
able to some because , as they alleged , it had
been used by preachers of third party pro
clivities to convince Methodists that they
could not bo true to their church unless they
voted the third party ticket. A strong
effort , was made to have this deliverance
omitted from the new dfaciplltio. The de
bate was not only spirited , but it hod a polit
ical and oven an acrimonious tlngo. It re
sulted , however , In the retention of the ob
jectionable paragraph by a count vote of 207
to 140. This paragraph declares against leg
alising the tariff in anyway ; establishes total
abstinence ns the rule for individuals , and
legal prohibition as the only proper attitude
for the state , and while it disclaims any pur
poses to interfere with the political adulations
of its members , it still warns them to bo care
ful to not give their support to any party
mannircd in the interests of the liquor trufllc.
On the subject of organic union with the
church south nothing dollnlto was done , but
the cause was greatly advanced by the speech
of Dr. Steel , of Louisville , the common re
mark being that so bold and advanced a de
liverance had not been mndo to the confer
ence since fraternal relations between the
two bodies were first established. To the
proposal from the Protestant Episcopal
church , made to this in common with nil
other evangelical bodies , hepking union by
absorption of the whole lot into one fold ,
that fold to bo theirs , and offering to give the
apostolic sacraments for this purpose to all
such as would accept the proposal
to this offer the conference re
turned n pollto "No , thank you , " feel
ing , of course , that Methodism could never
accept a proposition for union which would
require It to acknowledge that it had never
been a tru-j church , though at the same time
satisfaction was expressed nt the growing
liberality of the episcopal church , and the
right hand of gi cotlng and fellowishlp was
extended to that body.
The applicants for the session of this great
body four years lieuco wore Washington ,
