Th- Memphis Conference.
A dispatch from Jackson last
The Memphis Conference of the M.
E. Church, South, opened its yearly
session in this city today, with Bishop
J. S. Key. of Sherman. Tex.. Dresidins
The bishop read a part of the fifth
chapter of Matthew as a lesson, taking
what is known as the "beatitudes" a3
a basis for some striking and helpful
remarks. He said, in part: "It was
a great surprise to the disciples to
hear about 'poverty of spirit,' etc.
When a man is accused falsely he caL
stand it, but suppose he knows the
charges are true? Then he is rattled;
he is disturbed. And finally, 'ye are,'
said the Master, 'the salt of the earth.'
Preachers should be the best of salt
and the mo3t of it. 'But if the salt
have lost its savor, wherewithal shall
it be salted?' It is nearly impossible
to restore a backslider, especially a
backslidden preacher; he is good for
nothing. If he gives up and goes
back to the world he cannot succeed.
He is good for nothing."
After an earnest prayer by the pre
siding bishop the secretary of the last
session called the roll and a large
number answered to their names. A.
J. Meadows was re-elected secretary.
W. J. McCoy, assistant secretary; L.
D. Hamilton, statistical secretary.
The usual committees were nominated
by the presiding elders.
A resolution was offered by W. C.
Sellars and W. G. Heffley, calling for
the appointment of one man, who
should take charge of all the moneys
coming into the conference, this plan
to be put into effect one year hence.
Ihe resolution was adopted.
The report from the publishing
house was read and showed a large
increase in the volume of business,
The church now has the publishing in
terests located at Nashville, Dallas,
Tex., and Shanghai, China. Almost
all of the periodicals are now paying
expenses. Some are bringing in hand
The board that represents the en
dowment fund for the widows, or
phans and worn out preachers asked
that the Easter offerings be set apart
for their fund. The request was re
ferred to the Joint board of finance.
The report of the Memphis Confer
ence Female Institute was read, which
showed a large attendance and good
signs of prosperity,
Rev. John Randle. now the oldest
member of the conference, and who
was admitted into the conference on
trial in 1841, made a talk to the con
ference that was full of tenderness
Others of the old men spoke. These
worn out brethren have the sympathy
of the entire body. The church makes
provision for the support of the worn
out rr.pn. This is the easiest fund for
superannuation in an old man, viz..
which we have to provide. The bish
op said there were two signs of real
when he can't sleep in a shed room as
he once could and when he sees chil
dren romping and feels that he wants
to straighten them out. Then he is
an old man and should be placed on
the superannuated list. The old men
render good service in the respective
places where they reside. Thirty-nine
undergraduates in the conference have
taken the correspondence course of
siudv provided by Vanderbilt Univer
sitv and thirty-two of the number
have completed the course of study.

Rack Maxwell to Hang.
Rack ifaxwell, who killed Claude
Swann, a government detective, who
was after him for counterfeiting
last February, has been sentenced to
hang at Gamesboro December 23.
It was thought Maxwell would at
tempt to prove an alibi, but he sur
prised everybody by taking the
stand and admitting the killing,
claiming it was in self-defense. The
jury found him guilty of murder
with mitigating circumstances, but
Judge Hull, when he came to pass
sentence, ignored the jury's recom
mendations. Fell on a Ripsaw.
A frightful accident occurred at
Trenton last week. Will Jurney, a
highly respected young man, while
working at the Wade Planing Mill,

Imous vote, the delegates to the Araer-

tion of Labor.
Stirring and impassioned addresses
on behalf of the workers of the Fall
River district were delivered.

motion before the house, which was
carried, amid the cheers of the entire
convention. Many delegates arose in
their seats, and, on behalf of the or
ganizations which they represented, of
fered then and there to hand over to

amount of their respective union's as
sessments. Delegate Kcefe, of Chica

few moments time to get it.

olutions, no other business was trans
acted by the delegates, and an adjourn
ment was taken until Saturday morn

mystery. Mr. Weber's body was found
in the bath room. He testified that he
was one of the first persons on the

As he came down the steps of the
porch, later, he thought Adolph Webei

the dining room was broken, and there
was no fire in that room. The whole
hall was on Cre, and no one could have
passed through it. The bath room was
all dark when the house was pretty
well burned down. He broke the win

It aimed merely to capture a Russian
position, but whether it was Intended

Some correspondents note what they
consider significant Japanese move

ers that a Japanese column is moving
fifty or sixty miles eastward; but the
opinion in military circles seems to be
that no great movement is likely to

Fusan, Nov. 20. The past few days
have been unusually quiet along the
Shakhe river. The front of Gen.
Oku's army and the Russians have
been firing only occasional shots. The
armies have been lying intrenched
and practically in touch for over a
month, but there have been only cav
alry and small Infantry skirmishes.
The Japanese are virtually living in
the trenches, and the army is stand

The winter clothing has proved ex

Canea, Island of Crete, Nov. 21.
Disgraceful scenes transpired yester
day, when several groups or officers
and men of the vessels belonging to
the Baltic fleet. In this port, left va
rlous saloons and paraded the streets,
The Russians were evidently heav
ily intoxicated. Brandishing their
swords and other weapons, they made
a wild rush at the peaceable passerby,
At least five of these were murdered
by the drunken Russians, many oth
ers wounded and a large number
cuffed and beaten. The brawls con
tinued late into the night.
Under cover of darkness the drunk
en sailors grew wilder still and their
shouts and loud talk scared most peo
ple into their houses. The streets
which the Russians chose to make
their stamping grounds became prac
tically deserted by the residents. It
is reported that at least forty of the
Russian sailors have so far deserted.
Evidence of unimpeachable character
exists showing that the discipline on
board the Russian ships is unparal
leled in its laxity and that the men,
being intoxicated most of the time,
cannot be controlled by the few of
their sober and serious-minded offi
