CHINESE MISSION WORK.
There has been some church discussion
of Chinese Mission work during the last
few days. ' So high an authority as Dr.
Kalloch professes to think it worth carry
ing on, and the Baptists have talked about
it as though it were alive undertaking. It
"J appears to us that of all the humbugs
which sport around this sublunary sphere,
the Chinese Mission humbug is one of the
S least plausible. All missionary work is
more or less fallacious and fantastic. It is
all undertaken in a grotesque and amaz
ing ignorance of the need that exists at
home for just such enterprises, and an
obstinate determination not to recognize
the utter futility of assaults upon other
religions precisely as strongly rooted and
" quite as well defended as that which our
missionaries proclaim. But the attempts
to "evangelize" the Chinese are so pre
posterously hopeless that when grown-up
men meet and solemnly discuss the
"prospects" of such work, we wonder
that they are able to avoid laughing in one
another's faces. The Chinese have religions
of their own, all of which are very much
older than Christianity. They are the most
opinionated people in the world. They
' look upon all the Western nations as com
parative barbarians. And the experience
they have had of American Christianity is
ynct perhaps (at least in San Francisco) cal
culated to give them a very favorable idea
of its spiritual advantages. Moreover they
do not become' converted. We are aware
that they will sometimes attend Sunday
school classes, but they go there because
they find it a convenient method of learn
ing to speak English, and they want to
speak English because they can earn more
money if they are familiar with the lan
guage. Bat they do not become Chris
tians. Sometimes they develop into hypo
crites and fraud?, of the renegade kind,
and consent to appear as shining examples
for the vindication of the missions.
But they do not change in reality, and
when they have made all they can out of
-' the business they go back to their Budd
hism or Siuitooism, their worship of an
cestors and their perusal of the Analects
of Confucius. It is a distinct waste of
money to spend it upon Chinese mission
■work, and the sooner this fact is realized
the sooner will that leak be stopped, and
■_. the funds so squandered be diverted to
-'"some purpose tending to the benefaction
of those of our own household.
SHERMAN ON FREE SHIPS.
Secretary Sherman made a neat little
speech the other day on the prosperity of
the country, and in the course of it said
some bold and true things about the shame
fully foolish policy which has wrested the
carrying trade of the continent from the
hands of American citizens, and thrown it
all into foreign bottoms. Bat Mr. Sher
man did not at the same time call atten
tion to the equally shameful and equally
foolish fiscal policy which circumscribes
American industry and commerce, and
which builds a Chinese wall around the
country, for , the special benefit of a few
manufactures which do not require such pro
tection, and which ought not to have it
even if they did. The tariff is, after all, a
much . greater hindrance to the pros
perity of the country in other ways
than in its bearing upon our mer
cantile marine, . and those who j attempt
to expose its mischievous effects 'in one
direction ought not to ignore its universal
paralyzing influence. Mr. Sherman prob
ably perceives that the demand for free
ships is growing formidable, and he is too
old a politician not to avail himself of the
current of public opinion ;as soon as it is
; strong enough to waft his bark along. : But
like too many other politicians he is afraid
of the protectionist interest as a \ whole,'
-nil so he only pecks at the tariff, and pre
: tends a ; willingness to ' let : its worst and
most malignant . features remain. J There
will have to be more zeal and courage than
this in the Free Trade movement before it
can be made successful. . : 'JJ J
LEAGUE AGAINST LAW.
Later accounts 'of the Mussel Slough
tragedy do not tend to make the details
any clearer, and it still remains undeter-
mined by which party the firing was com
menced. The statements on this head are
conflicting. One is to the effect that Crow
. and Hartt both sprang from their wagon
together, and began firing. Another is to
the effect that the first shot was fired by
one of the settlers, that it struck Hartt,
and that he did not fire at all. J The evi
dence of Deputy United States Marshal
Poole, and that of Clark, the grader, i 3 not
at all decisive as regards the opening of
the fight. Poole says he was knocked
down by one of the settlers' horses, and
that while he was down the firing began.
Clark says that his horses ran away the
instant the first shots were fired, and he
could not say who fired first. It is stated
that the position and direction of Hartt's
wound seem to support the assertion that
he was shot while sitting in the wagon,
and if this is so the probability that the
settlers opened the fight ill be strength
ened. It is to be presumed that the Set
tler's League will not be permitted to set
the laws at defiance, and establish an
im peri it in in imperio on their own ac
count, and that j therefore the whole
case will be made the subject of
judicial inquiry in due time.
It is however necessary to meet the
studied attempts which are being made in
certain quarters to create sympathy for
these men, by emphasizing the fact that
they have from the first manifested a set
purpose to defy the law, and that the tragic
events which have just occurred are but
the culmination of a long course of law
lessness on their part. It is also proper to
point out that the arguments they use are
not supported by the facts in the case.
That they have, so far as any trustworthy
evidence goes, 'been treated with a patience
and moderation which they have never
shown the least appreciation of. That
they have shown a determination to hold
on to lands which belong to other people,
regardless of all judicial decisions. That
they have refused to avail themselves of
the opportunities repeatedly afforded them
of acquiring lawful possession of the dis
puted lands. And that the League which
they have organized can be regarded
in no other light than as a machinery
for overriding ihe law by brute vio
lence, and of retaining possession
of property their title !to which
has been declared altogether in
valid. To the assertion that "the rail
road company ought to have waited still
longer before resorting to summary
processes, we reply that there was no
reason whatever for any such procrastina-
tion. It had become perfectly apparent
that the settlers were resolved to resist the
law, and there could not have been any
ground for supposing that a postponement
of action would produce any change in
their policy. The men who had bought
some of the lands in good faith demanded
possession of their purchases, and it
became impossible to resist their impor
tunities. They had a right to make this
demand, and it wa3 incumbent on the com
pany to put them in possession. With
such a lawless organization as the Settlers'
League it is plain enough that the collision
must have occurred, no matter when the
attempt was made to enforce the law.
It is not for the interests of Society
that there should be any confusion of
thought in regard to a matter of this kind.
It will never do to let men set up their
own version of a story against the judg
ments of Courts, as an excuse for or pallia
tion of lawlessness. This Settlers' League
assaulted a United States Marshal in the
performance of his duty. They undertook
to bulldoze him precisely as a Southern
White League might undertake to bull
doze a Republican candidate or a negro
voter. Having bsen beaten in the Courts,
where alone they had a right to make any
contest, they thrust the laws aside, and
declared they would hold the lands they
occupied, right or wrong. That is their
position, and nothing better can be made
out of it. All that they say about the
terms demanded by the railroad company
is irrelevant. The lands belong to the
company. The present settlers had no
prior titles or equities, according to our in
formation. It was for the owners of the
lands to say at what rates they chose to
sell them, and those who did not like the
terms were not obliged to pay them. But
they could not arrogate to themselves the
right to fix the price of the land, though
this is what they have endeavored
to do ; and when they were dis
satisfied with the ternn offered they
could not be justified in refusing either to
buy, lease, or vacate, though this is what
they did do. They have in fact gone out
side the law because it did not suit them,
and they have incurred all the responsi
bility for this bloodshed, and whatever
further disaster it may entail. It seems
probable that they calculated upon their
ability to make use of the common preju- I
dice against corporations, to obtain the I
lands they occupy without making any
payment fir them. They have, however,
gone too far, and it is now inevitable that I
the case should be settled in accordance
with the law, and without further hesita
tion or temporizing. The security of so
ciety depends mainly upon the general re
gard for judicial decisions and legislative
enactments, and no specious plea must be
allowed to blind the public to the inexor- i
able necessity of upholding these mani- I
.stations of the popular sovereignty. J|:J X
THE BAPTIST CONVENTION AND DR.
The Baptist Convention yesterday was
the scene of an attempt to disfellowship
Dr. Kalloch, but a test vote showed that a
majority of the delegates were opposed to
the proposition, and the condemnatory
resolutions which it was sought to intro
duce were tabled. There is a sense of pro
priety about this outcome which does not
always manifest itself on such occasions.
Dr. Kalloch may not be an ideal Christian
and minister of the gospel, but whatever
he is to-day that he has been for a long
time past, and if his presence in the con
ferences of his denomination is regarded as
prejudicial to the interests of the church,
this consideration ought evidently to have
occurred many years ago. The movement '
to withdraw the hand of fellowship from
him has in fact been made altogether too
late to have any salutary - effect. 7 His
church has accepted all the responsibilities
attaching to his affiliation with it too long
to be capable of making a sincere or ef
fectual protest now. Nor can it be for
gotten that the act of condemnation and
repudiation contemplated by his ill-wishers
would have, from % the - very , nature of
the Baptist "organization, no J authority
or significance. There is in that church
no central _ power vested r with ■": the
authority to J discipline _J or expel obnox
ious ; members. " ■ Every church.; is % a J law, !
to ". itself, and . Dr. Kalloch's . own church
would doubtless learn with something like
V o_VKf*-*»-an" ..--.y- p^rrrir-, r. - m.^-rrr >. °_ ■ -_*..,
indifference I that , the ; ministers fof other
congregations had undertaken to cut him
off. Jj It was therefore better that the Con
vention should take the course it did, and
suppress the zealots who were so unreason
ably eager to vindicate the denomination I
from a stigma already too deeply implanted
for eradication. Perhaps also the reflec
tion arose to some minds in the Convention
that there might be a certain inconsistency
in the attempt of a number of not partic
ularly successful or flourishing or influen
tial preachers for the most part
! dozing away their lives over homeopathic
congregations in out-of-the-way hamlets —
to sit in judgment upon one who, whatever
! his faults may be, is incontestably one of
the meat eloquent and popular ministers
i on the Pacific coast, and who has built up
for himself a strong and well-to-do church
in the metropolis, and has succeeded in
attaching his congregation to him in a very
remarkable way. If success in his voca
tion is a test of fitness for it, we suppose it
must be admitted that Dr. Kalloch is, like
Pitt, "a Heaven-born Minister." Certainly
he bus done what very few other preachers
in California have done, and whether this
is owing to his own surpassing wickedness,
or to the strong taste of his congregation
for depravity, the external indication* re
main the same. Indeed the causes and the
significance of the professional success of
such preachers as Dr. Kalloch would afford
a peculiarly apposite text for one of those
essays or sermons which are read at these
denominational conventions, and we are in
clined to think that a faithful analysis of
the subject would prove more instructive
than the ordinary disquisitions upon ab
struse doctrinal points are apt to be. He
is a type and a figure which the pious
have never sufficiently studied. Perhaps it
might be suggested by the wicked that his
success is an evidence of the stimulus which
is given to churches by divorcing them
from religion. The subject, however, is
much too suggestive and interesting to be
discussed hurriedly, and so"*tve commend it
to the prayerful consideration of the Con
vention as a possible topic for future ex
"THE STARS HAVE SAID IT."
It is not often that occult art deigns to
meddle with purely practical and everyday
concerns,' and therefore when an exception
to the rule occurs we are disposed to make
the most of it. Such an exception we are
now called upon to note in the fact that a
Maryland astrologer, Mr. Samael by name,
has been constructing the horoscopes of
the two national conventions, and has de
rived from the stars some very remarkable
and interesting information regarding the
approaching campaign. As Mr. Samael
has discovered that the Democratic candi
dates have no chance of success, he did
not give the details of their horoscopes ; but
in regard to the Republicans he has been
as explicit and circumstantial as could be
desired. He finds the Republican aspects
exceptionally fortunate. The fifteenth de
gree of Virgo ascends, and Mercury, which
rules that sign, is lord of the ascendant.
The mere announcement of this fact will
of course carry terror to the heart of Mr.
Tilden," who no doubt knows its deep and
dreadful significance. The Moon is also
fortunately situated, and as the Moon rep
resents the people, according to Mr.
Samael, this shows "that the party will
"nominate a man who will give more
" general satisfaction than several of their
"past choices." Mr. Samael finds from the
stars that there may be some trouble about
seating the 'Republican candidate after
he is elected, and that there are apt to be
riots and other disturbances, but this will
pass over, and everything will coma right
in the end— unless indeed, which is also
possible, a tidal wave of Communism
should sweep over the country, and "bury
"the present republic and its two great
"parties in one red, blazing gulf of war."
This is not altogether reassuring, and it
could be wished that the stars had been
more precise in their information, but we
suppose it is necessary in astrology to take
whatever comes. When Mr. Samael gets
to the heavenly analysis of the candidates
he becomes more interesting, however. Of
General Grant he finds that "his direc
tions' are evil, the Sun applying to
"Uranus in radix, in the tenth hour.
"The Transits also were evil. Jupiter
" was in quadrant (an evil position) to
" Herschel, radix ; Saturn also in quadrant
"to the Moon, and Mars in apposition to
"Uranus." From all of which Mr. Sam
ael concludes that the ex-President will
not be nominated at Chicago, and indeed
if he is that kind of a candidate we
should think even Cameron and Logan
would hesitate about urging him
on the Convention. As to Blame the
Maryland star-reader is equally confident
that he cannot succeed. " The Sun afflicts
" the place of Mars in the radix, Jupiter
"afflicts his own place at birth, and the
" Sun afflicts his own place, also Uranus'
" place at birth. After that it is of course
idle to think of the Maine Senator as a
Presidential candidate any more. The
stars in their courses fight against him,
I and he might as well give up the contest.
' Washburne, too, is pronounced out of the
fight, but as to Sherman a different tale is
i told. "Jupiter in Mr. Sherman's horo
".scope had just passed an evil aspect of
" Uranus, which was the causa of, the
" censures so often passed upon him.
" The • transits of this summer, espe
" cially during the Convention, would be
" good. Saturn is Well placed to the posi
" tions of the Sun and Moon. The Sun is
" in conjunction with the place of Jupiter
"at birth — an excellent sign. Mercury is
"so also. Uranus is trine to his own
" place. Jupiter ia in semi-sextile (good)
" to the places of the Sun, Saturn and the
" Moon." ; And consequently Mr. Samael
is of opinion that Secretary Sherman tt ill
be the choice of the Chicago Convention,
. and that he will be elected President of the
United States. This is certainly some
thing new in the way of political vaticina
tions, but perhaps it is . not much more
unreliable or fantastic thin a good deal
of the prediction- which passes cur
rent at such periods as the present.
A TRICK THAT WILL FAIL.
We see it stated that some unprincipled
parties in San Francisco are about to steal
i the music of the Pirates of .Penzance,"
j Gilbert ; and J Sullivan's new comic opera,
by - sending musicians to I the theater to
learn the j score by ear, and then Jwritejt
down. Although the piece is fully pro
tected \by American .as well jas J English
copyright, it is said to be thought that the
law can :be evaded •in this - way, J This,
however, is a mistake. The same trick has
been tried before, and the case has been ad
judicated. It has been decided that piracy
| is piracy, by whatever methods committed,
! and it" the San . Francisoo . music ; thieves
; thick that they can circumvent the law of
copyright in the way referred to, they will
unquestionably find i that ' they have reck
oned without their host. There is in fact
no way by which the music _ of a : properly,
copyrighted opera can be legitimately pro
cured save by paying the royalty demanded
by the actual owners of it.

two cigars, which ;he accepted. Soon after
he began , smoking one, when it exploded,
lacerating his left hand and nearly blowing
off three fingers ; also nearly blowing out his
left eye. The other cigar was cut open, and
in the center was found a large dynamite fuse
cartridge. Phillips is very severely injured,
but will recover. pp Fortunately he had just
taken the cigar from his mouth, or he would
have been instantly killed. The would-be

The Suppose Murderer of French later-
Seattle, May 13th.— The man arrested
heie last evening supposed to be Murphy,
who killed T. D. French, in Umatilla coun
ty, Oregon, on the 6th inst., is still in cus
tody. A In an interview with your correspond
ent this morning he made the following state
ment :My name is Con McGregor ; am a
native of Scotland, aged 37 ; have been on
the Pacific coast some eight years ; J. C.
Fox, former Superintendent of the Willa
mette Iron Works, Portland, now of this
city, knows me well; also Frank Algar, of
this city, knew me ■ four years ago
in Cassiar ; have been employed at
Camp Henry, Grant county, Oregon, since
last . fall, and am well known both
there and at Canyon City ; left Camp Henry
on the loth instant, ami went to Portland,
via The Dalles ; arrived at Portland about
the 27th, and stopped three days at the Bur
ton House ; from there went to Astoria, and
stopped at Mirtzes' restaurant ; remained
there till the Sth instant, and came to Seattle
on Monday last, bound for the Skagit mines ;
heard nothing of the murder of French till
after my arrest ; this is the first time I have
ever been under arrest, or in jail. McGregor
is about 5 feet 9 inches high ; rather slim
built ; weighs 148 pounds ; has* lost his right
eye, the ball of the eye being partially visible
between the lashes. In appearance he an
swers to the description of Murphy.

■Washington, May 13th.— Voorhees submitted a
resolution asking the Secretary of the Interior for
the names of all land-grant railroads, particulars as
to the amounts of land earned and owned by each,
and also the amounts claimed but not earned, to
gether with other facts. Adopted.
Tho morning hour expired and the Kellogg reso
lutions came up.
Hampton argued that the case was adjudicated
and forever settled, and the accession of another
party could not change the status. If reheard now
the case might be reheard again and again. All his
sympathies were with the contestant. He dared
not enter the political questions involved,
but the Senate .had no power to redress
Louisiana wrongs* He referred to the Repub
licans of the Senate who sacrificed their
own feelings to seat him (Hampton). He referred
to bis military services in his State, and by implicit
tion asser ed that he needed no defense from Hill
and could guard bis own honor. He would follow
his conviction of duty and right regardless of conse
Carpenter said Hill argued that the Senate might
unseat a person if bis State, after his election, rec
ognized another Legislature. This would make the
State, not the Senate, the judge of who shall be
Senator, He made a careful and deep argument to
show that the case was res adjudicata, and dissected
Hill's argument with considerable skill and humor.
He quoted from several legal authorities especially
to show that the decision of the Court of final juris
diction was irreversible, though it made black white
and white black. Its decision might not be right,
but 'twas final.
Washington, May 13th.— Townsend, of Illinois,
claimed the privilege of introducing a number of pe
titions for free salt.
The Speaker ruled them out.
Cobb introduced a bill appropriating $9,000,000
for deficiencies in pensions the present fiscal year.
There was an angry colloquy between Cobb and
Blackburn as to whether the Committee on Appro
priations had directed this bill reported.
The bill was referred back.
Monroe explained his position at to the report on
the Venezuelan claims.
Springer contended that many Venezuelan claims
were dishonest, and criticised the action of Urth in
acting as attorney for the claimants while Congress
Monroe declared that Ortli's gubernatorial canvass
had nothing to do with the report of the Committee
on Venezuelan Claims. He had objected to the in
corporation of Orth in the committee's report chiefly
because he had high respect for Ortb, and believed
him innocent, although injudicious. He had argued
the point with Springer. Springer had taken the
other view- of the case, but had yielded for the sake
of unanimity and to secure the passage of the bill,
and Ilia passage respecting Orth was omitted.
Springer said lint if Orth had not impugned
his course as a member of the For
eign Affairs Committee, he would not have
spoken. , He then proceeded to show that
bis conduct in the matter was not for partisan pur
poeea. but from a Bens, of official duty. He
explained that the Chicago Times had published an
uncorrected rt'|iort in advance, through a misunder
standing between the publishers of the paper and
their correspondent here. This published report
contained eofßO paragraphs respecting Orth which
the later and authentic report omitted. He charac
terized Orth's being an attorney while Congressman
as a violation of the Revised statute? and a disgrace
to civilization, and submitted to the Bouse and
country whether his report is justified by the facts
Orth replied with great bitterness, accusing
Springer of personal and political malignity and
enmity. He declared that he would at a future
time make certain exposures, and Springer defied
him to make them now.
The House then went into Committee of the
Whole on the legislative appropriation bill, the
pending amendment being Hooker's, for the pay
ment of persons informing on violators of the in
ternal revenue laws.
Davis of North Carolina said such informers were
used for political purposes.
Kelley said that by striking at the laws which re
pressed illicit stills the Democrats furnished the
Republicans with ammunition which would more
than counterbalance all local popularity among the
Moonshiners which t hi y would gam.
The amendment was rejected, and the committee

PROCEEDINGS OF THE GENERAL CON

Appointment of Standing Committees
| Quadrennial Address of the Board
of Bishops-Reports of-Era
li§F ternal Delegates.
[Special Report to the Record-Union.]
Cincinnati, May 5, 1880.
The General Conference of the Methodist
Episcopal Church convened at Pike's
Opera House on Saturday, May Ist. It
was called to order by the senior bishop
of the church, the venerable Bishop Scott.
The roll was called, and of the 397 dele
gates composing the Conference but few
were absent. The address of welcome was
delivered by Bishop Wiley, and Bishop
Simpson was called upon to respond. Dr.
George W. | Woodruff, of New York, was
elected Secretary by acclamation. This is his
third election to this office. The delegates
spent the Sabbath at the different churches
in Cincinnati and vicinity, many of them
preaching to the delight of large congre
THE SECOND DAY
Was occupied mainly in constituting the
large standing committees. These commit
tees were formed in the usual way, viz :
By the call of the Annual Conferences, and
by the Chairman of each Conference dele
gation nominating one member of his dele
gation for each committee. The following
committees, each consisting of 95 members,
were thus constituted : Episcopacy, Itiner
acy, Education, Boundaries, Revisals, 1
Book Concern, Freedmen's Aid, Missions,
Church Extension, Sunday-schools and
Tracts, Lay Representation and State of
the Church. The Chairmen of these dif
ferent committees are : Episcopacy, J. M.
Trimble, of Ohio ; Itineracy, D. _______ Whe
don, of New York ; Missions, C. H. Payne,
Ohio ; Education, E. O. Haven, New York ;
Revivals, Joseph Cumming, Massachusetts;
Sunday-schools, Lewis R. Miller, Ohio ;
Church Extension, C. H. Fowler, New
York ; Freedmen's Aid, J. P. Newman,
New York ; Book Concern, Amos Shinkle,
Kentucky ; Lay Representation, E. O.
Stannard, Missouri ; State of Church, Dr.
Olin, Wyoming Conference. To these
committees will be submitted the memo
rials, petitions and resolutions coining be
fore the Conference.
THE ORDER OF THE DAY FOR TUESDAY
At 10 o'clock was the presentation to the
Conference of the quadrennial address of
the Board of Bishops. This address was
read by Bishop Simpson. It was pro
nounced by many the most admirable doc
ument of the kind ever presented in the
history of the Church. It was listened to
with marked attention and frequently were
its sentiments applauded. Those parts of
the address which elicited the most hearty
applause were its more conservative por
tions, from which we infer that the pres
ent Conference is not in a mood to make
many changes. , The address reviewed the
work done in the last four years, and
glanced at the prospects for increased use
fulness which the coming quadrennium
presents. It developed the gratifying tact
that during the quadrennium just closed
the Methodist Church had erected one new
house of worship for every working day
of that period, and one new par
sonage for every two working days
in that time, the progress in almost
every other direction being equally
gratifying. Among the recommendations
contained in this address was one calling
upon those interested to seek to relieve
the churches throughout the Connection of
any debts that may be resting upon them.
Another suggests that the instruction im
parted in our Sabbath Schools be made
more thorough and doctrinal. Another
that the period of time those entering the
ministry are required to remain on trial be
extended from its present limit of two
years to three years. It was also suggested
in the address that great care be observed
by the Conference in the selection of men
to fill the Episcopal office, and that no •
more new Biehop3 be elected by this Con
ference than are absolutely needed to meet
the requirements of the work. At the last
suggestion there was a perceptible elonga
tion of the countenances of the many del
egates who are hoping to be elected to
Episcopal dignities, brought about doubt
less by the reflection thai if there are only
a few prizes to be distributed they may
possibly not be among the fortunate ones.
The reports of the fraternal delegates sent
by the last General Conference to the M.
E. Church South, the Reformed Episcopal
Church, and the Wesleyan Church of the
United States, were presented. The two
former were all that could be desired, set
ting forth the facts that the fraternal mes
sengers had met with a cordial reception,
and that, so far as those Churches were
concerned, they entertained feelings of
true fraternity toward the M. E. Church.
But the report of Dr. Lynch, the delegate
to the Wesleyan Connection in this coun
try, created a good deal of merriment.
The reverend gentleman, it transpired,
though he -carried the olive branch of
peace in his hand, had not been well re
ceived. Presenting himself to the Confer
ence of that body, he was immediately
asked by the presiding officer whether or
not he was a member of any secret society,
and replying that he was a Mason,
he was pointedly informed that the church
could have nothing to do with him. Poor
Dr. Lynch was nonplussed for the mo
ment, but soon recovered sufficiently to
give the Wesleyan Church to understand
that if it could get along without him he
could without it, and to return to the Ark,
whence, as a dove of fraternity, he had
gone forth without being able to find rest
to the soles of his feet, thanking God that
a poor Mason has one place of security,
and to be finally vindicated, as he was on
Wednesday, by the General Conference.
We may add that it will probably be a
long time before the M. E. Church sends
another fraternal messenger to the Wes
leyan Connection, and that should this
ever be done, that messenger, if he can
help it, will not be Dr. Lynch of Indiana.
In this Conference are many distinguished
men — judges, lawyers, educators and eccle
siastics of national fame. There is some
thing inspiring in the sight of such an as
The ablest debater is Dr. James M.
Buckley, of New York. Other men quite
prominent in the business of the Confer
ence are Dr. Smart, of Michigan ; Dr.
Paxton, of Philadelphia ; Dr. Jewett, of
Illinois, Dr. Walden, of Cincinnati ;• Dr.
Trimble, of Ohio ; Drs. Haven and Olin,
of New York ; and, as a matter of course,
Dr. Woodruff, the genial and witty Sec
retary of the Conference.
Of the Bishops I have this to say : The
heaviest is Bishop Peck ; the lightest,
Bishop Bowman ; the most dignified,
Bishop Foster ; the most eminent, Bishop
Simpson ; the most aged and venerable,
Bishop Scott ; the jolliest and most busi
ness-like, Bishop Harris ; tho quietest,
Bishop Wiley ; the most polite, Bishop
Andrtws ; the plainest and moat genial,
Bishop Merrill. Bishops Bowman and Fos
ter are widowers. * The nine Bishops pre
side over the Conference in turn, in the
order in which they were elected to office.
They are a grand set of men, and are
greatly loved and implicitly trusted by the
Church. H. T.
