Minority's .Statement of Case
Causes a Sensation and Ef
forts Are Made to Pre
vent Its Publication.
Dallas Tex., May 17 The war-chum 1'
ua Is at lust squarely before tho General
Conference of tlio Methodist Episcopal
Church, Bouth. for final settlement. The
matter reached close to a climax to-day,
when the Committee on Publishing Inter
ests submitted two reports a majority re
port, signed by twenty-four members, and
4. minority report, signed by nineteen mem
bers. Tliero were four absentee, tho full
committee membership being forty-seven.
The majority report was a comparatively
brief document. It defended the church
and mildly censured Its agents and attor- I
Beys. Tho minority report was so long that !
It took tho Keverend James Cannon, Jr.. or
Virginia, nearly two hours time to read It. '
Tho document reviewed In every detail the
history of ths war claim und the legislation r
connected therewith. I
The references to the book agents and the '
attorney of the church wno finally engin
eered tbo claim through Congress, were of
tho most scathing character. They wero
ouched In such plain Engliih and cm
fcodled such direct charges that a. reprcsen
tntlve of the book agents visited the
press tables and warned the newspaper rep
resentatives that If tho roDort w.m nrintd
Jn full, or the accusations quoted from tho
roport, tho newspapers would be held re
eponslbla In damages under tho libel law.
Doth Ileports Ordered Printed.
Tho publisher of the official organ of the
General Conference, which publication Is
accepted as the record of the conference,
was notified not to print the minority re
port, undor patn of libel. Doctor loss,
who Is employed as editor of the dally of
Sclal organ, addressed the conference,
stating that he must not be understood as
advocating a suppression of the report, or
advising against its publication In the of
ficial organ, but the day the report should
be published In the official organ was the
day bo would not bo on duty as editor; ho
proposed taking a vacation. The result
was that the General Conference, by an
overwhelming vote, ordered tho report
Printed, not only In the official organ, but
ia pamphlet form, so that each member
could' have a copy to study during tho
proceedings next week.
The conference voted to take tho two
reports from the calendar at 10 o'clock next
Tuesday morning and to transact no other
business until the war claim Issue shall
have been finally disposed of. The vote
promises to be close, but at this distance
the minority seem to have an even chance
Mlseourlana With the Minority.
Among tho- members of tho Publishing
Commltteo who xlgned the minority report
are the three Mlssourians who are mem
bers of tho committee. They aro Congress
man M. E. Denton, U. M. Gibson, who dis
sents from the last clause, complimenting
the BIshODs, and R. G. Applegate. A can
vass to-night foils to lind a single dele
gate from Missouri who will vote for tho
majority report. All were not seen, but
several who were predicted that all the
Missouri conferences would be 6olld for the
minority report. The following are tho es
sential recommendations In the minority re.

believing that colors outside of those sup

show a marked Improvement over thoso of

that the sketchee present a less diversified

Editor: Sunday morning I rot up real early,
even before the paperman had come, to see
If my name was with the winners. When I
saw It I could hardly believe It and read
It over about ten times. I was so happy
that I tried another one nnd worked real
hard Surday uftcrnoon. I guess Its selfish
ness to want another prize but If this Is
ft winner It goes to brother. 1 did not know
how to cover that sail, but thought It
looked as If the boys had taken their
mother's red table-cloth. I can't wait till
I get that box of paints.
