inaugurated to get an expresrton f lh *
BpaUtntnt of the church members IB a bet

It was intended a vote should lxtakn after
hearing reasons for and against his return.
The ci.l } result of the meting was ai.
agreeincut to withdraw the petition , place
the same in the hands trf some one who
vould bold ihrra until either faction "broke
agreements upon which they were furren-

in the conference cabinet. Some of the
doctor's friends having cause ler iu .pectlng
that Icttarr to infiueiice the cabinet 'iad been
written by thoke opposed to his return , .de
terminedupon gring to the conference at
Albion. This movement ren-vrcd the ac
tivity of those opposed to his return , and
tuu the rentest was reopraedwith re

flict "before the cabinet. In the last
moments of the cabinet session , it WE un
derstood that Dr. Slj-ws was to be returned
to Schuyler , yet in the reading of the ap
pointments by the biehop Monday morning
hU name was read in connection with
Columbu * and that of Dr. J. W. Jenning *
with Sehuyler. Dr. Myers dedtred at once
that he would not go to-Columbus and -upon
returning to S-liuyler made it known that
It was hi * intention to organize an inde
pendent churrh vnlecs he was retained at
Srhuyler as pistor of the Metiodlst church.
Feeling for him ran so hlch that , upon < ua-
sultatipn with the presiding elder. D. K.
Tindall , it was determined to present
to Bishop McCabe a set of reso
lutions. Mating that it was the belief of
tbe officials of the church that it would
ix better for him to return Dr. Myers to
Schuyler ; that they would stand by him as
loyal AlrtbodiKts In case he were returned ;
that they -would drop all controversy nd
work for the prosj > erlty of the church- that
thej believed that his remaining would fa
J. cilitate the col let-lion of unpaid subscriptions
to the ntw church and make it easier to
raine the salary , much of it being already
juibscribed upon condition of his remaining.
Dr. Myers signed an agreement to be thor
oughly loyal to the church , T > reich purely
evangelical nermons and Methodist doc
trine * ; do nil he could to atone for and
bury the ppst , end build up the church , but
lie would not agree to take the appointment
originally given him by the bishop in case
the decision was against him.
Immediately upon hearing that there was
in t'jjdeavor being made to got the matter
before him again. Bishop McCal * tele-
prapbcd that hewould not change his de
cision , and at ont-e ordered Rev. Dr. J. W
Junnlnin on to the field with legal right to
possession of all that was neee ry to give
liua full rh rge. Dr. Myers was waited rpon
and informed of the bishop's firmnt-s * and
t once * about making preparations for
independent tervlces in the Schuyler opera
house , the r t of which was conducted
yesierday rooming. His letter of resigna

-cUMtions against the Methodist church.
