ANOKA. Minn., Oct. B.— At 8:30
P'cltx k this morning the M. E. confer
ence was opened by devotional exer
cises which were led by Rev. J. N. Cud
lipp. This lasted until 9 o'clock, when
the regular business session began.
Hishop Warren made a few remarks
and me followed by Rev. Hingaley,
who read the minutes of yesterday's
session. These - were approved. Rev.
G. H. Humason reported for the com
mittee on education. This report was
commented upon by Rev. F. Doran,
Prof. Innis, F. \Y. Hart and G. H.
Uridgman and then adopted. Bishop
.Warren gave a short talk on "Ilift
School of Theology" at Denver, and
also their circulating: library. The Bible
cause was reported by Rev. Elijah
[Haley. Rev. Hingsley read the roll
call for the benefit of those not pres
ent at yesterday's session and who
v.ished to subscribe something towards
the buying of the minutes, or to add
to their subscriptions given yesterday
at this time.
On the educational question Rev. R.
H. Young spoke and told of the print
ing, circulation, etc., of the Methodist
■Herald. Bishop Warren heartily in
dorsed what he said and read two sec
tions in the Book of Law-, concerning
collection? to be taken for educational
The young ministers who were to
be received into full membership in
the conference were then called to the
front and, after singing a iiymn, the
bishop made a pi'ayer in their behalf
that they might bring a wining heart
and clean hands toward furthering
God's purpose. In the sermon which
followed he told them of the means of
converting souls und bringing them to
Christ. He told them principally of
the teachings of Paul and his many
trials and hardships of his travelings
from I^ystra and Iconium and of the
trouble he had at these places. How
lie was stoned and driven to Derbey,
tut of his triumph and return to the
place from which driven. If ever
driven from a place, he said to return
later and there prove your sincerity
and spirit and you would be far more
respected than if you stayed away.
He said that Methodism was said to
liave two saints — Paul and John. He
gave them advice as to the best way
of reaching men, that is, to work right
along with them side by side and not
spend all the time in speaking to them
from the pulpit.
The best way to tackle the saloon
question and saloon keepers is to go
to them and do your talking there
to their faces and not standing aloof
and only thundering against them
from the pulpit.
His address was excellent and to the
point. Certain questions were asked
and answered satisfactorily. The
names were then read and are as fol
lows, each man giving his report as
his name was called: Perry S. Inger
soll. Henry Nobbs, Wm. Burns, Geo.

Invitations for next year's conference
were extended from Alexandria, Fer
gus Falls and Brainerd. Rev. Brown
■withdrew the Alexandria invitation in
favor of Fergus Falls and it was de
cided to hold it there next year. One
reason given was that there was an
Insane asylum there and it might be
needed. Rev. John W. Hamilton, rep
resenting- the Freedman's Aid society
was introduced and made remarks
about this society, its work and neces
sities. A collection will be taken later

STILLWATER, Minn., Oct. 3.— The

ence to hear Hon. John Lind. It is es
timated fully 2,000 were present. Seat
| ed on the stage were B. J. Mosier, J. C.
; Nethaway, City Attorney Gillen and
! many others. Hon. J. N. Castle intro- |
| duced Mr. Lind, who made a long argu- j
i ment in favor of free coinage, giving
' reasons from his point of view why the
I common people would be benefited by
| silver at 16 to 1. He did not refer to
i his own campaign until a few minutes
I before the close when he said in part:
I "At the outset I will tell you I am
desirous of success and would like to
be elected. I did not solicit the nomina
tion or preference accorded me. I tell
you this: If I am elected, I will do my
! full duty, and apparently there are a
! number of tasks for me to perform. I
i think there is ample room for improve-
I ment." He then referred to the ex
tensive land grant made to the Duluth
i & Iron Range railroad with the knowl
j edge, consent and, as he said, probably
! the co-operation of the state officials,
jas a gigantic steal. He said he had
i made several serious charges against
I the political ring, and he felt humiliat
'■ ed at having to do so, but he felt it
j his duty to make these matters public,
that the common people might know
what was going on. "You have been
told," said he, "that the parties which
nominated me never knew how to run
a state right. This refers, I presume,
in a sense to the Populistic party, as
Colorado and Kansas are held up as
[ examples, but I tell you right here that
; if elected I am not going outside of
j this state to select my assistants, as
j has been done in this state by the
I party now in power. I am going to
j take them from Minnesota. I am going
i to select the fittest, best and ablest
I men I can find to fill the positions
i right here in our own state." Vocifer

j when he concluded, and he was fol
j lowed by C. D. O'Brien, of St. Paul,

A GREAT REMEDY
For Sufferers From Pile*.
Dr. Redmond, a specialist In the
study and treatment of Piles and rectal
diseases, recently stated that the Pyra
mid Pile Cure, the new discovery for
th« cure of piles, wae the most remark
able remedy he had ever seen or tried
in one respect; and that was, th« in
stant relief experienced in all cases, no
matter how severe, from the moment
the remedy was applied; this was the I
more surprising to him, because he had
oarefully analyzed the preparation and
no trace of opium, cooaine or similar
poison could be detected.
Physicians look with great favor upon
th« Pyramid Pile Cure, because it Is
rapidly taking the place of surgical
operations and because it is so simple,
so easily applied and contain* no min
eral or other poisons so commonly used
in pile cures.
Dr. Esterbrook reports that the Py
ramid Pile Cure not only cures the
various forms of P|les, but never falls
to give immediate relief on the first ap
plication, no matter how severe the
pain or discomfort may be.
People who have. suffered from piles
for years are qftenT astonished at the
instant relief experienced from the first
application. Another important ad
vantage is the'jact that any one can

"You haven't been experimenting
with anything, have you?" demanded
the woman, tapping one foot nervous
ly upon the floor of the piazza.
"Huh!" said the man.
"But," insisted the woman desper
ately, "if we're not ghosts, where are
all the people?"
The man got up and looked about
him. Rows of electric lights stretched
down the piazza away and away intq,
the distance till they seemed to tunnel
into the darkness of the night art the
far end. Upon the piazza opened the
windows or brilliantly lighted parlors,
writing rooms, reading rooms, recep
tion rooms, and all the other conven
iences of a big summer hotel. Other
large patches of light showed where
great doors were thrown open, giving
admittance to broad corridors and wide
stairways. Long rows of big, com
fortable armchairs and rockers stood
along the piazza waiting for people to
curl themselves up in them and soothe
TICK POLITICAL STORM ( EXTER,
themselves with idleness. Somewhere
near by an orchestra was playing with
dash and vim. Only guests were lack
ing to give brilliancy to the scene. But
there was not a human being in sight.
"Huh!" said the man, with growing 1
perplexity in his voice.
"Do say something else," exclaimed
the woman petulantly. "The idea of
being left alone in a sleeping beauty
sort of enchanted summer hotel with a
man who can say nothing else, but
The man stretched himself and then
turned around with determination and
decision in his manner.
"I'm going to supper," he said, and
the woman followed meekly.
They had arrived at the hotel this after
noon. From a distance It had. seemed gigan
tic, and as they drew nearer ft grew and
grew until It seemed to be the biggest hotel
in the world. Its front stretched In long per
spective down the street; its height rose story
upon story, and countless "Ls" and wings
and additions grew out of it. Flags were
fluttering gayly from the turrets that sur
mounted It, the long rows of windows stood
open to the sunshine and the fresh air, and
great beds of flowers bloomed in front of it.
'"What a big place it is!" the woman ex
claimed. "What on earth shall I do for some
thing to wear this evening. Isn't there any
way of getting our trunks?"
They had driven over on a buckboard and
their trunks were to follow in the roundabout
track of the steamer. Having a soul above
dress the man was securely pleased at the
"Shan't be able to dress." he said with a
chuckle. "Any way," he added consolingly,
"the people will understand our position, and
we're not going to stay."
"But," moaned the woman, "there's not a
soul in sight! They're all up In their, rooms
dressing themselves for dinner. Or perhaps
it's a hop night, and we'll be disgraced!"
"No-o," said the man. "I don't think it
can be as bad as that. I used to come here
twenty years ago and I know the ways of the
place. They're probably all away on excur
sions or out fishing, and when they get back
they won't have time to dress. So, strug
gling against his private convictions on the
subject. "we'r« all right."
Whatever the explanation of the absence of
the people might be, it seemed to cover the
porters, bell boys, clerks and other employees
of th« hotel. No one ran down the steps
eagerly to greet 4hem and relievo them of
their bags. The prevailing Influence seemed
to extend to their driver, also, for ■• soon
as he received his money he turned his
horses about and put away at full speed.
A feeling of loneliness name over the man
and woman, when, picking up their trass,
they wandered thrcugh room after roam, lit
tered with evidences of man's occupation at
some period In the put, but none showing
man. Finally they came to the office, a
room that seemed as big in its emptiness as
an ordinary house. The register was there
and the gong read? to be i-laiiged by the
clerk; the ciyar counter, with the little red
lamp burning alongside and the ease of
souvenir spoons and cheap jewelry: and all
the other appurtenance* of a hotel office,
except the clerk himself. It was a study of
still life exclusively.
The sound of their footsteps lootoned the
spell a little, for a clerk appeared, stared
at them in surprise for a moment, and then
set the mechanism of the hotel in motion
so far as sending them to rooms is Con
cerned. In the elevator going up the sub
ject of dress continued to worry the woman.
"That clerk certainly locked at us in a
curious manner," she said. "Just as if he
thought of putting ua out because we weren't
tm she had done m mvcfc for her toilet as
two gripsacks would permit, and had come
down stairs with her heart steeled to meet
th. supercilious, disapproving looks of the
other women In full dress. But she found
none to dispute v/tth in her glory of being
the best-dressed woman in sight, and so by
a natural transition bad paesed from the
dressing theory to th. gnoat hypotheslg to
account for th. desertion around her.
As they entered tbe hotel oJßce on their
way to the dining room they saw that a great
change had tak«n place since their previous
visit. A clerk stood behind the desk, another
seemed bu»y over his books, a row of uni
formed bell boys eat on a bench, and the
eye* of all were turned full upon the man and
"It's worse than ghosts," whispered the
woman. "Why <lo they glare so at us?"
"Is— er— supper ready?" asked the man.
The words produced an unexpected result.
The clerk banged the bell, the row of bell
boys jumped up as one to show the way, an
orchestra burst into action with a crash, and
an ancient, melancholy head waiter in rusty
black habiliments threw open great double
doors and ushered them into the dining room.
If the hotel had seemed big from the out
side, the dining room seemed bigger. It
looked as if it ought to be measured by the
acre rather than by ordinary standards. Great
electric lights blazed, the table linen glist
ened, the silver and glass sparkled, pleasant
faced waitresses, with ruddy cheeks fresh
from farm life and attired in crisp white
dresses, hovered about; the orchestra thund
ered and sighed and rippled and triumphed
in a gallery; but otherwise the room wan
empty. There was to be had white, flaky
codfish, Just out of the sea, and fried to a
delicate brown; purple blueberry cake that
melted in the mouth, and all the other deli
cacies that Maine offers to visitors. But the
solitude was too much for the appetite of
the man and the woman.
"The room's too big," said the man finally,
pushing away his plate half tilled. "It takes
away my appetite. Let's get out."
They got up. At this the waitresses gath
ered in a group and whispered. The ancient
head waiter approached them with an anx
ious face. The orchestra slowed up and a
white-gowned figure came hurrying from the
"Was anything wrong?" she asked breath
"Would you like something else cooked?"
asked the head waiter, wringing his hands.
"Was the music too loud?" asked the leader
of the orchestra.
The man explained hurriedly that he wasn't
feeling hungry, and hurried out. In the hall
some men were waiting to accost him.
"I'm the livery man," said one. "If you'd
like to go driving, I'll be glad to let you have
the best turnout at quarter price, because
we're not very busy just now."
"I'm the boatman," said another, "and as
all my boats are not engaged. I can let you
have one cheap if you would like to go sail
"I'm a dealer in curiosities," said a third,
"and if you are interested in such things,
you may be glad to know that I'm selling oft
at a sacrifice."
The man thanked them and went out upon
the piazza. The orchestra seemed to follow
them from the dining room, and wailed and
sobbed and groaned In the drawing room be
hind them. Somehow the night seemed less
vast than that great empty dining room.
"What a place for ghosts this would be!"
said the woman, returning to her theory.
"Now," said the man mournfully, "when I
was here last this piazza was packed with
the prettiest girls and the finest fellows you
"May be they're ghosts about ub now,"
said the woman with a shiver.
"If they are ghosts," returned the man, "I
don't blame them for wanting to come back
when I think of the gay times we used to
have here; but as for human beings "
"Hush!" exclaimed the woman. "What
It was' so still and lovely and big that al
most any noise was capable of seeming un
canny. They could hear in the darkness a
rustling, shuffling, wheezing sound. Out
from the shadows somewhere came a call of
"Lady! lady!" and then they saw emerge
from the darkness into the light the ancient
"Would the lady like to see the ballroom?"
"Are there any people In it?" asked the
man in return. "Live ones, I mean."
The head waiter led the way down the long
piazza and, unlocking a door, turned on a
blaze of electric lights.
"It's the largest ballroom in the state," ha
said with a sigh.
It was big enough to play base ball in.
Around the sides chairs were arranged for
the dancers, the floor was waxed so that it
shone like a mirror, and on the stage were
the piano and racks for the musicians.
"Say," said the man, "where are all the
"This hotel," said the old man solmenly,
"has rooms for 700 people."
"Isn't there anybody in them?" asked the
"I've seen the time," returned the head
waiter, sadly, "when a thousand people have
slept here of a night— on the billiard tables,
in the halls, on the dining room tables—
whereever there was space for a mattress."
"Business doesn't look %o good now," re
marked the man.
"Then." continued the head waiter "there
is the parlor, which is quite as big as the
ballroom. Would the lady like to see it,
"No, thank you." said the man, "a bedroom
will do. Good night."
In the morning when the man went down
to breakfast he found sitting on the piazza a
good-looking young man with eyeglasses and
a black moustache, who was reading an Ital
ian novel. The young man got up when he
saw the new-comer and shook him warmly
by the hand.
"Glad to see you," he said.
"Thanks," said the man. "I'm sure of It.
I'd b« glad to see anybody In a place like
this myself. Are you the other guost?"
"There isn't any other guest. I'm sorry to
say," replied the young man. "You and your
wife are the only guests in the hotel. I'm the
"Oh," said the man. "Have you been long
in the business?"
"No." replied the manager. "I'm an archi
tect in Boston by profession, and I thought I'd
try this way of passing the summer."
"I'm going today," said the guest. "Isn't it
kind of wearing to have a hotel with nobody
in it?" *St
"Not at all," replied the manager. "I hope
you have received all proper attention and
that your stay has been agreeable."
"I'm not used to having a whole hotel to
myself," replied the guest.
"I think." said the manager, that I have
read somewhere that when the king of Spain
lodges in the Escurial he has his choice of
365 rooms. You might have had your choice
of double that number merely by mentioning
"Don't think for a moment," exclaimed
the gu«st, "that lam complaining about "

with a polite bow. "I choose my words badly
tf they conveyed the impression that I thought
that you were unreasonably discontented. No,
my thought was rather that your remark
again illustrated the truth that true content

Then the man paid his bill and, with the
woman, departed. <
