THE METHODIST CONFERENCE.
Cincinnati, 0 May 12,-The electiou
of bishops by the Methodist Episcopal Gen
eral conference to-day was an event of ab
sorbing interest. The Opera house and St.
'aul's church in the afteruoon were crowd
ed to excess, aud every turn in the proceed
ings was watched with closest attention.
The method of balloting was admirable.
There were no nomination. Each dele
gate wrote the names of four candidates
and deposited his ballot in a hat held by a
teller. The work was so expeditiously and
satisfactorily donj that many have since
proposed tho adoption of tho same system
in national political conventions.
The result is a surprising victory of tho
eastern over tho western branch of the
clnuati conference, would be. elected; but
while the west divided on theru, tho east,
with the ttld of gomo western vote concen

kuowledged on all hands to be pre-eminently
qualified for their high positions, but
they are without exception from the east.
The explanation of this rather singular re
sult is stated to bo that brothers of the east
ern conference agreed upon their men bo

The western delegates, although la an
overwhelming majority of numbers, had no
agreement ot action, anil their candidates
easily killed each other off". It wa3 thought
certain that either Dr. C II. Fowler, editor
of the Christian Advocate and represent

jected candidates is a long one and there is
considerable disappointment among them
and their friends, but royalty to the church
is the uppermost feeling aud all acquiesce
in the result.
One significant feature of the proceed
ings to-day was a disposition tc ait doja

Washington, May 12. There is reason
to fear that the house is making unreasona
ble efforts to secure an early adjournment,
and that the result will be some hasty and
ill-considerdd legislation on some important
matters left unacted on. The legislative
bill now pending makes a very large in
crease in the force of clerks of the
department and should have careful
consideration. Republicans are nnx-
ions, too, that there- should be no tana" leg
islation. They are afraid to make a record
themselves, and do not want to have the
Democrats make a record. A careful pi-
amination confirms the view taken in these
dispatches, that the Tucker bill can pass
the house, and that it will meet with no ad
ditional opposition to that which
was developed against the Townsheud
bill. Moreover, woolen manu
facturers are telegraphing hen
that they are satisfied with the proposed re
duction of duties on their fabrics, and .hc
cotton manufacturers are also iu favor of
the bill. It would seem to be a great mis
take, therefore, for Democrats not to at
tempt to pass the bill.
Republicans of the ways and means com
mittee to-day agreed to favor adjournment
by May 31. One of the grounds openly
advocated was that it would place the re
sponsible Democratic majority in bad light
to adjourn early, leaving important matters
