of the Missouri annual conference of
the M. E. Church, south, was held at

noted Methodist workers present, such

Methodist, and E. O. Brown, professor
of theology in Vanderbilt university.
Dr. John D-Vincil, of St Louis, served
his thirty-first year as secretary of
the conference, and J. B. Pritchell
has been fiscal secretary for twenty
six years. Rev. C Grimes on

The characters a the young men
who were in the ministerial field last
year were investigated. These young
preachers are started in the towns and
villages and circuits where Methodists
are not very numerous and, as a rule,
their work pays them but little. By
this mode of procedure they are en
abled to finish their education, an.l at
the same time build np the cause in
their respective charges The character
of every one examined stood the test,
and they were continued in the work.
Dr. E. E. Hoss, editor of the Nash
ville Christian Advocate, addressed the
conference on the general policy of the
church, and referred to the question of
reunion with the Methodist church
north. He said in substance that many
thousands of the southern Methodist
brethern were in favor of organic
union on a basis of an equal recogni
tion of the rights of each, hut he de
clared it must be union and not ab
sorption; that was demanded by both
their own respect and simple justice.

Likely tn Prnvn mtlM.
Berlin, Sept 5. The arrival of
Count Herbert Bemarck and Count
Rantzan, his brother-in-law, in Ki&san
gen, Saturday, is not expected to help
much in bringing the emperor and
Prince Bismarck together. The peo
ple, however, think that influences
will prevail and the reconciliation will
soon be accomplished.
Emperor . Francis Joseph and the
king of Saxony have sent to Kiasengen
sympathetic inquiriesafter the prince's
health, and have suggested the desira
bility that Prince Bismarck make the
next advances The grand duke of
Baden and the king of Wnrtem
burg are writing with energy to fhe
same end. Still Bismarck holds back,
seemingly reluctant to answer the
emperor's advances before extorting
such homage as no sovereign has ever
paid a subject.
Telegrams from Kissingen represent
him as trritsted snd suspicious He is
said to regard fie attentions now be
stowed on him by crowned heads as
too ostentatious They are suggestive,
be thinks of a plan to extinguish him
entirely as a political factor. He is
recovering his strength quite rapidly
now and is sensitive about being
treated as an honored memory, lie
means to reassert himself as a power
ful element in German politics in the
This is the sentiment on which his
son and son-in-law with others of their
circle rely to keep him on the old line
of opposition to the government It
will bitterly disappoint the whole
country regardless of party, if they
succeed, and the emperor's overtures
The newspapers of all political ten
dencies praise the emperor for having
taken the initiative, and agree in hop
ing that the prince will not deny the
nation the pleasure of witnessing the
end of the feud between Berlin and
The Munich Allgemaine Zeitnng. Bis
marckian, says: "Germany has not
had such a joyful surprise in many
years The people will never forget
that the emperor took the first steps
toward lifting a load from the hearts
of all patriots"
The Vossiche Zeitung makes this
comment: "The emperor's action was
a necessity. Out of respect for the na
tional reputation Prince . Bismarck
should not be allowed to descend into
his grave withont receiving a mark of
sympathy from the emperor. History
might have accused Germany of send
ing Prince Bismarck to the tomb.laden
with the ingratitude of his fellow
countrymen. The emperor has drawn
the sting from such a charge."
Opinions of this kind might be quoted
at any length. They are not calcu
lated to sooth Bismarck's resentment
at being treated as a dying man.
There is In fact, little chance of his
submission to the emperor for better
or worse, and any plan of reconcilia
tion with this end in View will surely
miscarry. If the emperor's kind mes
sage should result in soothing the
prince and inducing him to moderate
the bitterness of his attacks on the
government no more can be expected.
The official newspapers here, however,
affect to expect more.
The official journals of Austria-Hungary,
which were quoted here gener
ally yesterday, also try to affix in ad
vance the stigma of shocking ingrati
tude to the prince's action in case he
should not accept the position of a
worn out statesman.
The Pesther Lloyd says: "If. after
the emperor's magnanimity. Prince
Bismarck renews his hostilities to the
government it would sink him' forever
in the estimation of the public."
In view of this line of comment it is
not surprising to find Bismarck's
friends dnbious whether the ap
proaches to a reconciliation which aro
known to have been offered by Chan
cellor Von Caprivi are not inspired
partly by a desire to weaken Bis
marck's criticisms of the government's
policy as it is about to be developed in
According to the last dispatches from
Kissengen the text of Bismarck's re
ply to the emperor's message remains
unpublished. Its general tenor is said
to indicate that efforts to reconcile the
two men will be futile. The German
correspondents who shave arrived from
Guena give an insight into the maneu
vers hardly in accordance with the
eulogistic telegrams which were sent
ont last week.
