ing both tha gold plank offered by the
majority and tho silver plank submitted
by the minority of the resolutions com
mittee and tha substitution therefor of
the money plank of the Minneapolis plat
form of Ib'Jl. McKinley was indorsed

D. M. Ferry was chosen chairman ot the
state central committee, but it Is not cer
tain that he will accept the post, both
himself and General Alger, whom name
was also presented, having declined the
honor In adv-u'ee.
Tho fljht of Uio convention arose over
tho rnrrency plank of tho platform.- The
majority rvp rt financial plank was a
follow: "We are unyielding and un
compromising In oar demands for sound
and honest money. Wo are In favor of
the uso of gold and silvor and paper
dollars In our currency, all to bo main
tained at a pnrity o to their purchasing
and debt paying power. V aro opposed
to any provision that Will invite deprecia
tion of any portion of our currency, and
therefore we ure nnDosed to t be free and

believe that such a course would destroy

committee, presented a majority ubstl

platform as to tho American people being

Cleveland, May 8. By a vote of 433
to 98 the Methodist general conference
decided that the four women delegates
might retain their seats. This does not
mean that the women have won a com
plete victory, the decision was reached
simply as the result of a compromise, and
with the understanding that it should not
prejudice the claims ot women in the fu
ture or establish a precedent for future
conferences to follow. But by tho same
voto by which the women were given seats
the conference also decided to submit to
the annual conferences a proposed amend
ment to the constitution providing that
hereafter all general conference delegates
shall be over S6 years ot ago, and that they
shaft have been members ot the Methodist
church for at least five years prior to their
Goes Back to the Conferences. '
It also provides that no conference shall
be debarred from at least one ministerial
and ono lay delegate. This constitution
al amendment is to bo submitted to the
annual con Terence and must receive a
three-fourths voto to be adopted. The
amendment Is construed to moan that
women as well as men will be eligible as
lav delegates, the word "laymen", not be-
fng used. The members of thocommltteo
on eligibility who signed tho compromiso
report were evidently of tho opinion that
the question could bo settled by tho gen
eral conference, as it was only one which
involved tho proper interpretation of tho
constitution. However, ic was deemed
better to let tho annual conferences decide
tho matter, hence the proposed chango In
the constitution was submitted.
Committee Divergent bat Affectionate,
The delegates were evidently pleased
when the question was finally disposed of.
Rav. Dr. .1. M. Buckley, editor of the Now

contest in thf committee on eligibility.
said that tho sitnntion in the conference!
was critical. "At tho close of seven houra

Milwaukee, May B Tho fourth dsy
of the groat street railway striko opejed
without any material change in tho situa
tion. Seventy-lour cars were going over
the tracks under guar Js ot police, but
with the exception of lines in thorough
faro leading to railway stations they
were poorly patronizsi. Vice President
Fayne announced that the company's of
ficials would bo pleased to meet the com
mittees appointed by tho common coun
cil and merchants' association, . but that
tbey hnd nothing to me J into and nothing
in that line would be entertained. Payne
said under no consideration would tho
street enr officials meet any delegation
from lubir organizations. '
The only serious adts ot violence com
mitted wero tho stoning of cars and the
injuring Vf two lady possongers by ths
Dying missiles, several arrests wore
mule. Sanio of tho new men are con
stantly quitting, but more are, eng.igod
and thcrj is no lack of men to jmove tho
cars. The south side lines have baen
abandoned for the present on account ot
lack of police protection on the. Outskirts.
Tho refusal of tho railway company to
entertain any proposition for mediation
from tho common council and Merchants'
association commit tee is generally crit
icised. The matter has rosol vd itself into
a fight to a finish with the chances in fa
vor of tho company.
At 8 o'clock last eight tho Elootrio Rail
war company was oull&cd to discontinue
its very limited car service Mobs con
