HOLLY SPRINOS, Miss.. Sept. 20.Col. H. W.
Walter fell at his post. His place was hard
to fill, but the committee called upon Col.
Falconer, Secretary of State, who was nursing
his brother, who responded, "I am at your ser-
vice." His duty he faithfully and thoroughly
performed, until the dread monster fell upon
him, and he was borne to his home by his
physicians. Considering the fact that he was
the only State official that remained at his post
at Jackson in discharge of his duly, he should
he especially honored. He would be there to
diiv, but he was summoned here by a telegram
Stating that his father and brother were down
with the lever Like a true son and brother he
came, and those of us who have seen how de
votedly he has done his duty, can bear testi
mony that in this dire distress he is a man all
men should delight to honor.
The death list since the last report is as fol
lows: Mr-i. W. S. Featherstone, Mrs. Foreman,
Miss Stewart, II. Stone, James Webber, Mrs.
Thompson, Noble. Wm. Collins, R. Lees, C.
Knaop, M. Gotrig, Cl. H. W. Walter and two
others whose names are not known. The new

E. Leidy. Sr., Mr. Cotton, of Beauregard, W.
Stein, E. Laranch, John Laranch, L. Adams,
Charles John Talbot, Rev. John Thompson, and
three whose names are unknown.
Already we have spoken of Col. Walter, but
we little deemed he would be taken so sudden
ly from us. If we could wo would weap. If
we could mourn we would mourn. If we could
tell the woe and the heartaches there would be
mourning, there would be ail that sorrow and
distress could ask, but the silence of the tomb
pervades the hearts of our little band. The
best have gone down and we have asked others
to take their places. In not an instance have
we seen the one that would refuse to take his
place wherever we assigned him. This is no
time for compliments, hut when the day comes
the public shall know who has stood by us.
We said we had no tears, but there is a time
when they flow and that when we read the
telegrams, the letters, from friends far away.
Tell them they give us heart and make as
stronger, better and brighter. But for this we
would feel heartsick and weary and our suffer
ing people tender their praytrful thanks to the
kind and generous assistance friends in all
parts of the Union have given.

well. Up to noon to-day twenty-three deaths
have occurred. This, however, is not in full.
It is a very difficult matter to get at
the oorreot number, owing to the loose-
ness which characterizes the management
of two of the undertakers1
ments. The official reports of deaths made to
the board of health since the beginning of the
epidemic and ending at noon to-day, gave a
total of 2,240. This does not include many
who have been buried b. private individuals,
who purchased coffins and interred their own
dead. Among the victims whom
death has claimed since last
night are'S. R. Clark, a prominent citizen, and
secretary of the Phoenix Insurance company of

GAMBETTA AGAINST OLTBAJtONTANISM.
PARIS, Sept. 20.The fhllowing is the text of
a portion of Gambetta's speech at Rouen,
Wednesday, against ultramontanism: "The
clerical question, that is to say the question of
the relations between the church and State,
keeps all other questions in suspense. Here in
the church it is the spirit of the past, which
takes refuge and gathers strength, I denounce
as an ever increasing danger to societyruns
from the ultramontane spirit. The spirit of
the Vatican, of the syllabus, which is nothing
but abuse of ignorance with the purpose of en
slaving it, I have spoken of the relations be
tween church and State. I am per
fectly aware that to be correct I" should
have said the relations between the churches
and the State, but from a governmental and na
tional point of view it is only ultramontanism
which presists in opposition to the State. The
clerical spirit endeavors to filtrate into every
thing, into the army, into magistracy and
there is this that is peculiar to itit is always
when the fortune of the country is falling that
Jesuitism riBeB. Fur bo it from me to wish to
put shackles on liberty. I am an absolute par
tisan of liberty of conscience, but ministers of
religion have duties to the State and what we
exact is fulfilment of these duties. Apply the
laws, all the laws,and abolish indulgences. If the
law is applied, order will be restored in France
without prosecution, by simply continuing the
transactions which prevailed from the aurora
of the revolution in 1789 till the last glimmer
of the revolution in 1848. They were
not abandoned until in December the
rnitrailleurs and those who blessed the mi
trailleurs combined. Privileges form half the
power of these men. They live on public cred
ulity alone. Yes, every one must be subject
to the common law. Obligatory service must
be made a reality. A vocation must be only al
lowed after the first of all vocations, that of
serving the fatherland, has b"en fulfilled."
The Republican papers of Paris generally
give unqualified adhesion to Gambetta's defi
nition of the party's programme. The Jour
nal Dot Debats, Leon Say's organ, agrees with
his objects, but not entirely with his course of
means. The Temps also makes some reserva
tions. The Catholic press regards the speech as
a declaration of war against Catholicism. Con
servative journals generally criticise thespeech
keenly, and several express the opiniou that
Gambetta is trying to run with the radicals and
hold with the opportunists at the same time.
The speech, however, has created a profonnd
impression in all political circles.

TB.E GATHERING OF THE ANNUAL
The Charges Against Rev. WrightHe
Denies Having "Written Anonymons
Letters and is Being TriedA Multi
tude of Koutlne Work Accomplished.
Below will be found the delayed report of
the M. E. Conference at Rochester, as well as
the later report for to-day. A miscarriage in
the mails prevented the report, which should
have appeared yesterday, from reaching the
GLOBE office until yesterday forenoon.
WEDNESDAY MORNING, Sept. 18, 1878.The
further discussion of the matter pertaining to
Dr. Wright was fully entered into by many of
the ministers, some for a secret trial and some
against. The resolution whether the testimony
should be taken in open conference or not was
lost. A motion for a committee to be appoint
ed to report the names of eleven persons who
should constitute a committee to take testi
mony and report to the inference for its action,
was passed. The Bishop appointed as snehcom
mittee: Dr. Hobart, David|Brooks and D. Cobb.
These gentlemen retired and during the in
terview the newspaper question came up, when
Rev. Bishop, of Fairbault said that as we were
not to have the Conference Advocate
published as contemplated, he would
move that as the Pioneer Press re
porter was here the money be placed in bis
hands and a copy of that journal be forwarded
to the persons who bad subscribed.
Rev. Rice said the money had been collected
for the purpose of getting the Conference Ad
vocate, and as that project had failed for v.ant
of a sufficient number of names, he thought it
only proper that the money be refunded to the
subscribers. He did not feel authorized to
make them subscribers to the Pioneer Press or
any other paper. The representatives of the
GLOBE and Dixpatcli thought so, to. The mat
ter was finally disposed of by Rev. Chaffee
making a motion to Uy it on the table, which
motion prevailed. It is proper to state hpre
that twenty cents per cony will furnish the
GLOBE to the ministers and their friends for the
conference week. The secretary, Rev. H.J. Crist,
called the attention of the conference to the
subject of the publication of the minutes,
which called forth some discussion. This was
cut short upon the appearance of the com
mittee on the Dr. Wright case, which was a
matter of more importance. Twenty-three
names were presented by the committee from
which to make the selection of the eleven. As
the names were called they were t be chal
lenged, if a challenge was to be made at all.
There being no objection, the first eleven were
selected as follows:
J. Akers, C. T. Barkuloo, S. Bolles, B.
Blain, J. Crook, J. Hall, J. N. Henry, C. T.
Kingsland, J. Lamberson, N. M. Learned, and
J. W. Lewis.
R. Forbes was nominated aa secretary, C.
Wagner as clerk, and Dr. Hobart was appointed
by the bishop as president of the committee of

embarrass him somewhat his cabinet, as
three of the litigants were presiding elders, but
so far as he was concerned, he was determined
that everything should be done to honorably
and conscientisusly adjust the existing diffi

The charges against Rev. Dr. Wright are for
immoral conduct and for conduct unbecoming
a Christian minister. It seems that certain
anonymous letters have been written, of a
bulldozing character, and the authorship has
been traced to the reverend doctor. This he
denies, somewhat to the surprise of the breth
ren who make the charges. They supposed he
would acknowledge the corn and suffer the con
The doctor was not of the same mind, and
proposes to make the proof substantiate the
charge. It is a difficulty much to be regretted,
but now that it is entered into will be disposed
of, and no whitewashing.
ROCHESTER, Wednesday afternoon, Sept. 18.
The conference adjourned promptly at 12 M.
The afternoon was employed by the bishop and
his cabinet in looking over the several fields.
The cabinet is seriously broken into by three
absentees, Dr. Wright, Elders Chaffee and
Creighton. who are participants in the matter
now under consideration by the committee of
eleven in regard to the charges against Dr.
Wright. But the bishop is equal to the emer
gency and will allow no interest to be harmed.
The several committees are attending to their
At 2:30, Rev. F. H. Tubbs preached a sermon
from the 46th psalm, 4tb and 5th verses,
"There is a river, the streams whereof shall
make glad the city of our God," etc. The
pulpit was also occupied by David Brooks.
The speaker prefaced his sermon by an apol
ogy, in saying he did not expect to preach, and
if he believed in the policy of saying no, he
probably would have acted on that policy to
day. We have known an apology to spoil many
Among the arrivals to-day are layman F. S.
Swisher, of Grace church. St. Paul, who is tak
ing a casual survey over matters and things.
He is not after any wood chuck and has no ax
to grind, and there are no rumors or intima
tions of a change in his billiwick but, like
many others, Fred likes to go to conference
and see how the thing is done. Dr. Jabez
Brooks, of the university, put in an appearance
to-day also. Dr. Hitchcock is busy in the
basement room settling up with the ministers
for periodicals, books and church litera
ture. The doctor is a kind,
venerable looking man. His hair is white as
snow, but his eye is as keen as a briar, and
business is in every twinkle. He is a very val
uable man to the book concern and a hard
worker. He has a kind word for every one.
but business must be attended to. He has the
supervision of large interests, and he wants all
to understand that obligations should be met
and these obligations could be met if the peo
ple would pay the minister.
PAYING THE MINISTER.
We heard one young brother say his people
were behind $100 on his small salary, and he
should be obliged to ask an extension of his ac
count until October. Now, is it possible that
the laborer in this cause is not worthy of his
hire? Or, do men obligate themselves to pay
the minister without the intention of doing it?
One of two things is true when the minister
is not paid, either the society is too
niggardly mean to deserve a minister, or they
make obligations without the intention of per
forming. The salary at best is small enough,
and at the tail end, if any one has to wait it's
the minister. Well, we suppose he can live on
faith. If he can, he can't get very fat on it,
and the only advantage he would have under
the circumstances might be that his clothes
would get too large for him, or made a suit for
his whole family.
By way of explanation, I would like to say
that the word "supernumerary," where it oc
curs, means where ministers are without regu
lar ministerial work from ill health, or for
travel, or because of a desire to temporarily
indulge in Becular work, or for study, and yet
have a voice in the conference. '"Superannu
ated" means where they are worn out in the
service and are a conference charge. To "lo-
cate" a minister, and it is done for various rea
sons, prominent among which is inefficiency, is
to drop the name from the conference rolls.
Sometimes good men find they have made a
mistake in selecting the ministry, and it is
necessary to "locate" them. This is where we
get our local preachers. If a man is "located'

moments how to conduct social meetings. He
said prayers and speeches should not be too
long, neither should they be too short. He said
we were indifferent at times that we did not
put 011 enough dignity in this matter. He was,
however, much pleased with the spirit of the
meeting this morning. The business proper
commenced promptly at 9 o'clock.
R. Forbes was nominated to preach the Con
ference sermon next year. The annual exhibit
of the Cincinnati book concern was presented
and read. Some of the church periodicals
fihowed a large gain, others a slight falling off.
But in the aggregate the exhibit showed a very
healthy condition. The document was orderad
filed among the conference documents.
HE REV. KXEPPER'S CASE.
The presiding elder, Rev. T. M. Gossard,
said, when the name of Rev. J. W. Klepper was
called, that there was nothing against him, but
that something bad transpired in connection
with him should be stated to the conference.
The things referred to were certain newspaper
reports which reflected serious.y upon Mr.
Klepper's Christian character. He called a
committee to inquire into the foundation of
these reports, and on examination, found that
Mr. Klepper had been guilty of imprudent con
duct, which subjected him to reprehension,
which bad been administered. Mr. Klepper
acknowledged tlve finding in his case, and re
ceived his' reproof with humility. He also
stated that Mr. Klepper had made acknowledge
ments to his church and through the public
press of his imprudence and mistake, and had
done all that could be expected to atone for
and correct his wrong. He closed up his con
ference year with reaction setting in in his
favor. His character was passed.
The characters of J. G. Teter, J. 0 Rich, E.
F. Kingsland. J. M. Mash. Levi Gibson, John
Lamberson, C. Hobart, and J. Klepper were
passed, and they made their financial reporta.
Elder Cyrus Brooks made a written report,
giving the extent of his charge, the methods
of reaching, and the accommodations when the
points were reached. He gave in detail the
standing of each appointment, stating where
churches ought to be erected. One minister,
Bro. Stoddard, fell at his post of duty. Bro. J.
R. Ackers, of Minneapolis, broke down in his
work, arid was obliged to relinquish his work
and return to his home in Pennsylvania. The
district showed a very encouraging condition.
ROCHESTER, Sept. 19.The equinox struck
this town last night, and the rain came down
in most copious showers. At 8:30, although
yet raining quite hard, the ministers, including
the bishop, assembled for devotional exercises,
which were conducted by Rev. J. H. Macum
ber, of Red Wing. Brother Ezra Tucker, one
of the absentees, appeared at conference this
morning. As I listened to the beautiful songs
this morning, and saw all the ministers engag
ing in it in such a prompt manner, all in time'
and tune, I asked myself this conundrum:
"Why is it that Methodist ministers in the main
are such good singers?" 1 give it up.
The devotional exercises having been brought
to a close, the regular session opened and the
secretary read the minutes of the previous ses
sion, which -were approved- The bishop sa.id
he would proceed with the tenth
question and the name of J. F. Chaffee, of the
Winona district, was called. Nothing was re

ported that he would make his report in wri
ting as requested by the secretary, if it could
be deferred. The bishop said he would defer
it. W. C. Rice, A. C. Reynolds, R. Forbes, B.
F. Kephart, A. B. Bishop, M. Rogers, Allen
Follensbee, J. Barnard, C. T. Barkuloo, J. M.
Akers, O. Williams, Aaron Matson, Wm. H.
Barkuloo, F. C. Mather, as their names were

WHO REMAIN ON TRIAL.
The third question: "Whoremain on trial?"

continued on trial.
The bishop said that takeu all in all, this
class was the most remarkable class he had ever
Bro. Tice was designated to receive the mon
ey for the Freedman's cause.
Bro. McNiff was appointed to receive the
church extension money.
HE ELDER S.
The seventh queston: "Who have been elect
ed and ordained Elders this year?"
The report in the case of John Jacobson, dis
misses him from further studies.
He was elected an Elder.
The names of O. L. Hansen, Lewis A. Larsen,
John Pemberton, Chas B. Brecount, Henry W,
Pease, James Hanna, Wm. Hennings, Endre
Endreson, Mordon B. Smith, Chas. L. Libby,
all passed in character and ability and were
elected to Eider's orders.
A NOVEL CONTRIBUTION.
When Brother Endreson mad* the statement
of his collection, a litte episode intervened that
was of a pleasing character. He came forward
and presented to the bishop a few gold rings,
to the value of $30, which were given as com
ing from the ladies of his church, who gave
them in lieu of money. He said they had a
history and were clear gold. They were an
unusual appendage among minis*ers, by them
considered aim* st an unnecessary ornament,
and it took some little time to dispose of them,
but, finally they went into the treasury of the
The sixth question was taken up: "Who are
the deacons of the second class?"
The names of Levi Gilbert, John Okey,

Kaufman, H. Petersen, and A. Peterson, and
after addressing them at some length on the
duties of a minister of the gospel and the great
work they have in hand as preachers, took them
into full connection.
The bishop said that mistakes were often
made in advancing men for the ministry.
Preachers are sometimes ambitious to have
young men who are converted under
their administration, become preachers,
and sometimes suggests to them that
perhaps they ought to be preachers. Some
times rural churches are ambitious to trim up
a young man for the church. This is apt to be
a mistake. It is not every man who supposes
he has a call to preach, that has such call. Men
sometimes become ministers who ought by all
for rmmoraJTonductr^ means to follow secular pursuits. If you call
ister are taken from him, and the conference
has done its part in purging itself of an un
upon a young man for the ministry and find
you have made a mistake and are obliged to
remand him to secular pursuits, you degrade
him in that regard and hence we should be
very careful how we encourage men to take up
on themselves this calling. If, after you are
satisfied a young man should go back to secu
lar pursuits, you do him a great wrong by,
through a feeling of sympathy, continuing him

LAKE CITY, Sept. 20.A steady rain the after
half of the night and all the morning up to 9
o'clock, has put a damper upon the fair pro
gramme for to-day, and unless it clears up
soon I fear for to-morrow also. The prospects
yesterday were bright for a large attendance
to-day and to-morrow, bu# veryily one cannot
tell what a day may bring forth. Several races
are on the programme for to-morrow, equestri
an contests, foot races, and a grand tournament
between A dozen knights of the lance. Ther
is a free-ibr-all trot announced for a purse-of

Dutchman barred, and several good horses are
prepared to start if the weather permits.
A BARE COLLECTION.
Dr. D. C. Estes, of Lake City, makes an in
teresting display of a miscellaneous collection
of geological specimens, taxidermy, archaeo
logical, and other relics of antiquity, and of
more modern times, from his wonderful
museum in the ci y. Among the marvelous
curiosities may be mentioned the two
tusks of a domestic hog, -which had
grown out of the lower jaw
and curved around and reentered the jaw again,
forming a complete arc and penetrating the
bone a distance of more than an inch and a
half. The tusks are as white as ivory. It is
such a freak of nature as has no parallel in the
catalogue of natural history. The Dr. shows a
a set of artificial teeth for the upper jaw, said
to be two hundred and thirty years old.
They are human teeth set in a base of
carved hippopotamus tooth, and fastened
with gold screws. It is claimed
to have been the work of a skillful artist of
Madrid, Spain, long before the wonderful sys
tem of modern dentistry was dreamed of. Then
thee is an Indian lance, once the property of
that distinguished Sioux chief, "Old Cut Nose,"
who was one of the thirty-eight hung at Man
kato in 1862, for his bravery in slaugh
tering infants on the frontiers of
Minnesota. Among other relics is a
sand-stone pipe bearing unmistakable
evidences of having come down from the
mound builders, when the world was younger
than it is now and peopled by the primitive
races. In another sacred niche hangs a club
said to have been obtained from the tree under
whicn that august assemblage proclaimed the
declaration of independence, 1776. A copy of
a London edition of Milton's Paradise Lost,
dated 1751. ia to be seen in this unique display.

ADVOCATED BY GEN. SUTLER
History Called Upon to Prove Its Yalue Over
a Rigid Specie StandardLittle Hale's
Butler on the Finance*.
INDIANAPOLIS, Sept. 20.Gen. B. F. Butler
spoke this afternoon in the exposition building
for nearly two hours. He commenced by say
ing that the frequency of our elections had a
tendency to destroy their value and prevent
the proper appreciation of the privilege which
was possessed by the people of the United
8tates, and by no other nation in the world,
that of choosing the man who should admin
ister the government and determine the nature
of our laws. In this land the people are sov
ereign in their own right and it is their will
expressed in a constitutional manner which
make*: le-s?s and makes the officers to execute
those laws. He wished it understood that he
was not one of those who feared the masses of
people. He held that the congregated intelli
gence among the masses is greater than that of
a few cultivated men, nor was he afraid the
masses would do any wrong. This country
has been under the
CONTROL OF THE MASSES
for the last fifty years, with some few and rare
exceptions, and they are of recent date.
Duiing all that time, he undertook to say, the
people had done no wrong to anybody, no
wrong to capital, no wrong to themselves, no
wrong to the government, nor in the manage
ment of government affairs. He had great
faith in the old Saxon maxim "Fair Play,"
and this was the rule which governed the
actions of the majority of people. When a
few men congregate together, although they be
n better and no worse than the rest of the
people, they are drawn together to look after
their own interests, and not of the interest of
the whole country. The question, therefore, is
how shall the people act to-day. There never
was a time when the people were more free to
act than they are now. There have been two
great parties going along on certain professed
principles wh'ch were of importance at one
time, bnt have arrived at a period when other
issues sink into lesser importance in view of
the one great question before the people,
THAT OF FINANCE.
And it may not be for the interest of the
people to be bound up to either of these par
ties any longer. With a view of showing the
nature of financial legislation he then referred
at great length, and considerable minuteness,
to the history of the action of the Democratic
party and of Congress from the days of Mon
roe and Jackson down to the present time. I
the course of this resume he declared the
TEACHING O HISTORY
in this country and European countries was
that irredeenmble currency iR more easily kept
at par valne than a currency redeemable in
coin. He attempted to establish this assertion
by going back to the days of ancient Venice,
and said 600 years ago she issued a cu rency
not redeemable in anything which remained at
par value for more than four centuries, not
only at par, but as high as 120 per cent, above
The continental money, with whioh our sol
diers were paid and our
LIBERTIES WE RE WON,
was neither more nor less than rag money,
save the manner of its issuance was a mistake
and its form bad, but the continental money
did good service. It distributed the expenses
of the war of the revolution among all the
people. Eventually it wiped itself out of ex
istence without a ybody being the loser. This
was mo honorable than the policy of the
government with our greenback currency,
which has resulted in a tax on ourselves and
our children which will not be paid during the
next generation. The objection is equally
urged that the French assignats and mandato
were specimens of unredeemable paper
money, and proved that such money would
have no permanent value, but disturbed the
condition of France at the time when the
assignats were issued. The argument and com
parison is unfair and unjust. The assignat
was no better than our land warrants, which no
one would call money, and thoso French land
warrants were in the hands of men who might
one day occupy the position of a criminal, on
the next be in a seat of judicial power. There
was nothing stable about such a currency, and
under such a condition of affairs, because
nothing was valuable in France at that time,
neither life, limb nor property. The newspa
pers and some political speakers were, he said,
raising_great objection to the phrase,
but what does fiat money mean? Do the news
papers know what it means? When all was
chaos and without form and void, and darkness
covered the earth as a pail, God said these
words, which are Latin, "Fiat Lux""Let
there be light and there was light." Fiat
money means simply the United States govern
ment should say:
"LET THERE BE MONEY,"
nothing more, nothing less. The word "fiat"
is the Latin for "let them be." He referred at
length_to'his Congressional action upon the
finance question, and claimed he had been con
sistent in the views he was advocating.
In 1860, he made a speech in
Congress in opposition to the passage of
a bill for strengthening the public credit, find
he was now havingfthat speech issued throughout
Massachusetts as a campaign document. That
bill was introduced by Mr. Schenck, chairman
of the committee on ways and means and also
chairman of the National Republican committee
during the first great campaign. It was, he
alleged, the result of a contract entered into
with August Belmont, agent of the Rothschilds
and chairman of the National Democrat com
mittee after Mr. Schenek had been entertained
at the Manhattan club of New York, borrowing
ten minutes of Gen. Schenck's time, he, Gen.
Butler, stated his objection to the bill, and he
was laughed at for his pains. But if his coun
trymen should ever deem him worthy of a
monument he hoped the inscription would be
"Here lies the man who denounced the act of
1869 as an infamous swindle." Speaking of
RECONSTRUCTION OF THE SOUTH,
he said it had been taken out of the hands of
both politicel parties by President Hayes and
must now be left to take care of itself. He
wished his Republican friends and the newspa
pers who were saying hard things about him
would not allude to anything ho did previous
to 1872, because he was then understood to be
a very good Democrat. But he had not changed
his views. He was in early life a Democrat, a
believer in the financial views of Jackson and
Jefferson Democrats. At that time
there were unbelievers in hard
money, as now understood, and he
wished to stand on the old Democratic doctrine
the government should take care of the people,'
of the laboring man, and protect him against
the greed of capitalists. That was the doctrine
of the Democrats when Democracy meant some
thing. What is needed now is that the govern
ment should make and issue money sufficient
to carry on all the necessary public works and
complete them quickly and cheaply. This
PUT MONEY I N CTRCtJLATION
and give employment ls of i n
dnstry in motion all over the land. These
pubhc works would be carried through witn
out any additional burden being placed on the
country, for the government would payout the
money which it had the power to make and is
sue money to any extent that was jund neces
sary. This he believed to be the proper and
only way of supplying the people with money.
Some believed it would not work, but the
country could never be worse off
than at present, and if the experiment
proved a failure why the next Congress
could change it again. That waa the plan
adopted in commercial business. They tried
an experiment, and if it failed abandoned it
for some other method. Re asked in view of
the failure of the present nnancial policy that
I 1H1 iBMl'ufrli
the National theory be put in practice, and he
believed the resnlt would be beneficial.

ing over pretty much the same line of argu
ment, and was followed by Judge Hughe* of
Pennsylvania, and Rev. DeLamatty.
