agf. P. F. Qulglcy or Srfc Francis da Saios
Cathollo Church In this city by the Ohio Su
premo Court, is a vary Important decision.
Tho Legislature of Ohio a few years ago
ras.sed a law making it compulsory upon
teachers, superintendents, principals, and
others connoeted with private nnd publlo
schools to send In monthly reports
of tho attoadanca to the different Boards
of IMucation. The law al-o cava the
Boards power to appoint truant ofllcors.
Tho Catholic pastors in Toledo all compiled
with the law except Dr. Qulgloy. Ho became
dcllant when called upon to sen.l in reports,
and b.ild that he was prepared tn fight tha law.
Tho nictaLers of tho Board of i.ducation ac
cepted this challenge. Ancther chance was
given him to report, but upon his falluro to do
t.) lie was arrested by tho Sheriff. His cusa
came up fortrltl before n jury In Judga Lcm
mons'a room. nniL though dofendod by ex
Congressmen Frank II. Hurd and J. M. Ritchie.
he was convicted. A now trial was asked for
but refuod. Tho cao was carried on appeal
to the Circuit Court, nnd niter a long trial the

An appeal w.ts then taken to the State Su

guarded by tho able attorneys wlm defended
IJr. Uuigley. but in face of all this ho was
founa guilty, and the law is declared consti
tutional, it is believed that the case will rest
here, and Dr. Wufgley will comply wllh tho
law. Ho was arrested a second time for fall
ing to send In his reports, and taken I eforo
tho Probata Court, but was released rending
the outcome "f the present suit. He bus sent

'Hid orcn dellance of Dr. Qulgloy caused

A Movement to rjeeare to tha Bishops and
Clergy Permanent Itomea A fteport on
lhe Constitution aad JUay Member.
CvfAn i. May 11. Bishop Joyce presided oyer
to-day's session of tho Methodist Conference.
Dr. Urnyof Philadelphia offered the following:
"H'Arrrflj, There is a profound and wide
spread conviction among our preachers and
pcopla that tho efficiency of the episcopacy
will bo greatly increased, and the growth ot
the Church and her Institutions greatly pro
moted by thonsslgnmont ot each Bishop to a
prescribed territory for a period of years, and.
" IV'ArTiriu. Tha general supervision of tho
whole work by tho Bishops soverally Is practi
" Jlmotvit, That tho Commtttoe of Episco
pacy shall consider and report to the Central
Confcrenco on or boforo May 17. upon the ad
vlsnllllty of dividing the territory into as
many cplscornl dtstrlots. loss one. as thero
nro elTectlvo Bishops at tho close of this Gen
eral Conference, said districts to be composed
in as far as practicublo of contiguous con
ferences. " Itcsclctd. That such divisions shall leavo
the senior Bishop without a prescribed dis
trict, that ho may prcsldo at conferences In
case ot death or disability of any Bishop. 'I hat
the Board of Bishops shall so arrange tho
work as to assign tha sauin Bishop to the
supervision uf tho samo district during tha
terlod of four years."
Tills resolution was Inspired by tho Bishops,
as they believe In modifying tho rules on itin
eracy. In order to allow tho Methodist clergy
to secure a permanent homo. In order to gtvo
tho ministers tho samo chances. Dr. Webb of
east Ohio offered this resolution:
" tt'lirreas. There aro circumstances which
clearly show thnt tho tlmo limit tn our pas
torate works bcriously against Its fullost use
" IIArTcas, Tha annual appointment secures
all needful check and safeguard to our itin
eracy. "Unotted, That the Conforence remove tho
time limit from tha pastorates for tho Interest
and good of tho Church."
Both of these resolutions were referred with
out debute, but, from tho evident pleasure
they gave, it Is evident that they will bo hoard
Irom again with a favorable, report.
Other resolutions offered wero of like Im
portance. One of them looked to tne curtail
ment of membership on committee, the pres
ent bodigs proving unwieldy. Anotherepoko
ol the growing dl-centent nmnng the church
people I ecause uf the dilucliniitiou in some
quarters to kneel ut praers. many electing to
keep their Mit-. '1 he re-olutioii a-ksthata
new service be allotted which will make It
obligatory for all member, from tho wealthi
est to thw humblos-t. to kneel In prayer.
The lay delegates, through .lohn Field of
l'hlhu'clyliia. presented a memorial to tho
Bishops and Coa'erenee in regard to equal rep
resentation. '1 he document sets lortli that In
slxty-tlireo conferences equal representation
ha nlteady been udopted. but the older con
i terence? are not so favored. It calls attention
to the fact that tho older conferences are rep
resented in tho ratio of ono lay delegate to
"4UI41 incmbei. while tho new conferences
havo ono delegate to U.Ml! memt r. Tho
Memorial asks that this inequality be reme

that the colored member of tha church ex-pre-

The Commute.) on Upiseopacy usked and re
ceived mora time to report on the need of
moru Bishops, 'the report of the Con:-titu-ttonal
Commission wan then taken up. nnd
Bishop Morrill was asked to explain points in
it. Bl-hop Merrill said that ono duty va3 to
a-certain what is the organic law ol tho
Chun h. and what Is tho constitution. Ihoro
has been much confusion, many confounding
thorn as one and tlios.ims thing.
Tho committeoo reached tho conclusion that
thoie aro two separate and distinct things,
one tile organic law of the Church, the other
the constitutional law of the C'onfercn-o. Tho
Commission had dellned tho constitution. It
w.ts for tha Conference to concur or not, Tha
Commission found some dlillcuity In applying
tho organic law to Its prorer sphere. "Wo
found thu fuml.iinentnl law was to bo troated
astlieorganiolawof the Church, and In this
wo designated tho Articles of Faith nnd tho
general laws, and wa went further nnd Incor
porated tha constitution of tho General Con
ference as a portion of the organic law for tho
"lhe Church iu General Convention In 1TR
adopted tho coristituti n. In 18 , without
cniillMu.ro nnd by common consent, this was
modlilodin somo cases. Lntil that time tho
instrument hid never boon debated or chal
lenged, but in that year n discussion was
bnrnngupon the constitutional right of tho
Conference to admit lay delegates by a major
ity tote. The General Conference of la7"i
po.sse-scd and exercised authority and power
thtt tho Conference of lo-JM did not possess or
ntteint.t to o:pr..I-o."
"lhe l!iliop held that the action of tho Con
ference of 187 was litrdly w irranted by judl
i ciil proei dure, and thnt It illd something it
l was not foinmlly authorized to do. and that
something wa the introduction of the plan of
tho laj delegates, wlilch.il It was unlawfully In
tro iucod, Is an unlawful assembly. Tho Com
mission, however, did not tako tho view that
it was an unlawful n-Ramblv.
"V a assume that ltwatho Intention of tho
Conference or 18U.1 to clothe tho Conference of
lKi"! with constitution-making power In or
itur t-i a imlt lay delegates. Wo hnve decided
that the ( onlerenca of 1871i did something
wlilch it waseinrowere.l to do by tho preced

''Ir.m," ! Dron uinceno illegality on the act
of 1872. II you desire to do en, that is your
right. If you-trike out thnt which tha Con
ference did in 1871!, then you are again at sea."
Hardly had Bishop Merrill closed whan at
least thirty men arose and simultaneously ex
clnlmed, "Mr, Chairman."
Dr. Brldseman was Bucceful. but all over
the house delegates kept their feot. and
points of order, question of privilege, re
iiue-ts. Ac. were Hied nt the Chair. But
dually tha Doctor succeeded In putting In an
amendment declaring In ptib-tanee tint ail
that has gone through thn three-fourths pro
co.s Is eonstuiitl n, nnd that which lias not
gone through thnt process Is not con-tltutlon.
Dr. Itamiln oifore.l another amendment
striking out the clause provldlug for thu num
ber of lay delegates, which is designated as an
net of statutory effect only. Dr. Uucal hold
that the Conference u 1872 did hot legally
amend tho constitution, and he hoped tho
Conference of IftC would not attempt to ratify
what tho Conference o lfa7, fulled to do.

for somo time. -j ; V
The dog vvas a muscular brute weighing A : .i(J
ome Titty pounds, with a groat reputation lot TJ '
gooJtutnper. Throe families rent tho upper & ij
floor nnd the chlldron petted and played with ' i J?
the dog at every opportunity. Vasterdar th j
terrier surprised every ono by sulking for tha ! S
better part of tho dtr and refusing to eat ;l jfi
About 4 o'clock Joseph Austlnschock. th 'Jj jv
three-year-old son of the tenant of th third I ,j
floor, went to tho yard, and, as usual, spoke to !i !!
the dog. Tho animal sprang at him with - r S -f-j
growl and burled its teeth In his arm, Th j T j
boy screamed with pain, and tho dog, loosen- ..'B!'I
ing his grip, snapped at tho boy's hand, laoer ",',)f"j iji
atlng it badly. Tenants ot the house hurried 'aWij
to the child's assistance, and the dote slunk .itJ if,
away at their approach. .'jRfw
Austlnschock's paronts wora badly fright- tjf It
encd and Inslstod that the dog should b ''yfl-ir
killed. His owner consented and tho dog was vSflif
caught and tied up In the cellar with a bit ot iJ 'ii i
clothesline, because tho tenants feared to go 2 ,S1
into tho yard whilo the dog was thero. iff ;
Martin found Policeman Walsh, who was ',i At
armed with a 32-callbra revolver, but Kir
had only two cartridges. Martin piloted "4 !ilfi
him Into the collar and pointed out 'i .'i,
tho dog. Thoy neglected to take a J i f
light with thorn and had to depend on tho un- .-! .. it
certain light which cumo In irom the street j1, 'SHI
through th small, square windows along ths ' irt ill
ton of th collar walls. Policeman Walsh vs 'jitl
aimed just back of tho dog's right shoulder IK 'I
and tired, arho bullet struck the shoulder- ."3f? it
blade and glanced off. inflicting only afleah. H h
Maddened with the pain of the wound, tha ; iR
dog leaped at th officer. Tha rope broke. ..; )aj
nnd the dog sprang directly nt tha policeman's Mil t
throat Walsh jumped behind a barrel lust In ;i ;ffi j
time to esoath dor's attack and Bred again. 'fjM
In his txoitement he missed his aim. The dog -"H" ;
caught fclght of his master and charged on jRrf .1
him. llartln jumped aside In time to avoid jM,
the attack, aid the policeman drew his billy -j St
and managed to gat a blow In on tha dog's .i i
head. It seemed to have no ether affect than '& iH i
to madden th animal still morn, but Martin tRi"'
had a chance to arm himself with a plea of $',
lend pipe. m i
For fully twenty minutes the men fought ill s
with the infuriated beast In the dim light ot i't"
the cellar. During the truggle they struck ? ill i
him a dorn times or more, but did not seem tit I
to even weaken him. By this time Martin was ;H i
becoming exhausted, but neither man dared P H
risk turning his bnck on the dog to 't ('!
run up the steep cellar stairs. Tho doe v-j
charred again on Martin, nnd seized f. it' I
him by the hand. He hung on with all a bull Vfi
terrier's persistence. This gave Walsh a t '. I
chance to get In three or four effective blows 'it .
on tho dog' head. The animal loosened his -i (S I
hold on Martin's hand and fell back. Both -, IB I
men attacked him. and hn finally succumbed "'I'S '
under repeated blows of the policeman' blllr . h if
nnd the lead plpo. !Sf
Martin hurried off to a drugstore and had -,'s
nis wounds cauterized. His hand Is badly bit- oVtl
ten. Martin tlilcke that the dog wao mad. $ll5l
The dog was a line specimen of his race. Js&'Jj !
