To Unite Methodism of the World.
London, Aug. 16.-Methodists all
over the world will be interested in
the latest plan ot Mr. R. W. Perks,
M. P., to bind them in one universal
brotherhood. Interviewed concern
ing this churchly scheme, he said:
. "Every ten years the Methodists
hold an international congress. Our
next congress takes place three years
hence at Washington. By that time
it is my belief that my scheme will
already be accomplished. It will be
a great day for Methodism. I pre

at Westminstar built upon the site of
the old Aquarium will be opened as
the world's headquarters of the
"My proposition calls for the es
tubbshment of what might be called
a vast Freemasonry of Methodism at
least so far as the unive3rsal brother
hood features are onTorned. And
practically I propose that the church
should deal with emigratiou prob.
lems, the crisis of unemployment,
and the encouragement of thrift by a
3 world-wide Methodist organization.
Many of the things that I have sug.
gested have been received with grave
a and well considered approbation by
the leaders of our church. Our
brethren in Americi are enthu'iastic.
f Before next year it is my intention to
personally consult the views and
wishes of Methodists throughout the
entire world. I know that it is a
3 gigantic task but'the results will be
Unknown Tongues at West Union.
For several weeks past a meeting
has been in progress at West Union
conducted by Jim Knox and Peter
Majors, both colored, which has had
a tendency to cause many negroes to
act in a way that has been annoying
to the citizens adjacent to the church.
These leaders claim to belong to
the sect regarded as "The Unknown
Tongue." They jabber and chat'e
and act in many other foolish ways,
and the judgment of- some who have
attended the meetings ia, that the
whole push have gone crazy.
They have gone so far in their
teachings as to leave the impressi n
upon the minda of these ignorant
creatures that they can raise the dea l
to life, claiming that they have been
ordered by the Lord to do so.
Jim Knox gave out the announce
ment last week that on Wednesday
night at nine o'clock he would by di
vine authority raise the body of Silas
Wright from the gr-av.., where it has
lain for the past seven or eight years.
Cons4 cuently much excitement and
interest prevailed amrong the negroes,
and long hbefore the appointed hour a
larje number of those whbo have been
attending the meeti-ngs, and also a
fewv white people whlo were anxious to
see wvhat wvould he done, met at the
A~t nine o'clock, .Jizr. Knox wvas at
'he grave of Silas Wright, where' he
began his mnanevres. We are infornli
ed that he began shaking two hand
kerchiefa over thet grave, back and
forth, then walked off a few steps,
saving, "The Lord is not ready for
him to rise yet." He then returned
lowers never to doubt, that he would
accomplish his work. He then began .
tearing down the head and foot
stones that had been placet there .d
mark the last resting place of SIlMas
Wright, when Charlie Wright, brothb'
er of the dead man, appeared oR the' j.
scene and put a stop to all the pro,
W arrants have been issued for aeev
eral of the negroes connected with
the affair, and they will have to an
swer to Magistrate A. V:. Crisp on a
charge of dtstroyiug tombstones hall
This poceeding closed the meeting
and the citizens of West Union are
now enjoying that peaceful. ol.nob .
of wbich they have ben deprived.
Later-Nine of the negroes- for
whom warrants had been issued
charging them with mutilating tdmb
stones, were tried before Magistrate
Crisp yesterday, but the prosecution
failed to produce ,sufficient evidence
to convict and the case against them,
was dismissed. Mahaley Wright,
widow of the dead man who was to
have been resurrected, testified that
she placed 'the tombstonea-at the
grave, they were hers, and that she
was in favor of what was done there
