Cedar Raptds Divio. Seriously Charred
Before th. African Conference.
The conference of the African
Methodiet Episcopal church has
come to a close in Moline. During its
session the judiciary committee had
an unpleasant duty to perform.
Rev. George H. Wade, of Cedar
Rapids, was charged with adultery
and a still more serious crime. He
was suspended by the presiding elder
last April. This was irregular, as
the elder had no authority to sus
pend him, but after bearing some of
the evidence Monday the cc mm it tee
"ollicially" suspended the minister,
pending bis trial, which is set to
take place before the committee at
Ottnmwa, Sept. 28. Rev. Burleigh
was selected by the committee to
present the charges and prosecute
the case and Rev. J. R Clemins, of
Moline, was chosen to defend him.
The Cedar Rapids charge has a large
membership and the sensational
affair has attracted considerable at-
Rev. J. R. Clemins, of Moline, was
assign d to the pastorate of St.
Stephen's church nt Chicago. Rev.
u. J. rbihp. of Galesburg, was
given the Rock Island and Moline
Bishop B. Y. Arnett, who pre
sided over the conference, left for
Chicago to institute a suit f r dam
ages ngainst the state of Texas, the
decision on which will likely have an
important effect on race dis
criminations in the fatnre: Ten
days ago the bishop's daughter.
Mrs. J. W. Mason, and son were
traveling from St. Ixuis to Galves
ton, Tex., in a Pullman sleeper on
the Iron Mountain road. As the
train entered the state of Texas, her
son was called out on the platform
by the conductor and shown a tele
gram from the ollicials of the road
which read: "Explain to colored
people in sleeper separate car law."
it was then explained that a law re
cently enacted in Texas compelled
colored people to ride in separate
coaches from the white people and
mat it wa me conductor's duty to
see that they rode there -' There was
nothing tor Mrs. M as ft u' and her son
to da but acquiesce, but on their ar
rival at Galveston Mrs. Mason tele
graphed her father to know what to
do. He at once replied asking for
full particulars, which were sent to
hi in in a letter which reached him
yesterday morning at Moline.
Bishop Arnett says he intends to
institute a suit against the state of
Texas to learn if possible if the law
is constitutional, and will consult
with his attorney at Chicago. An
other suit against the Pullman Car
company fce says will likely follow.
A BRILLIANT DEDUCTION.
Tbe Cnloa Bant, op a Former Democrat
Who Will Not Vote for Bryan.
In its editorial columns this morn
ing, the up-to-date Union gravely an.
nounces among oiner logical deduc
tions, politically speaking, that
Gen. James D. Morgan, of Qulncy.
111., has been all his life a democrat,
but he will not vote for Bryan."
Inasmuch as Gen. Morgan's funeral
occurred yesterday, there does not
seem to be much evidence to dispuie
the morning paper's assertion, and
hence it probably felt reasonably
safe in making so rash a statement.
The subject is too serioat a one
under th sad ' ircumstances to ad
mit of much discussion, but a travel
ing man who attended the last trib
ute to the Adams county patriot
was in Rock Inland today, and in his
allusion to this morning's declara
tion of the Union as a sample of its
progrc?sivenss, he alto took occa
sion to refute the allegation made
by i he same paper a few days ao as
to the general inclination of com
mercial tourists. -The most I have
met he said, "are for free silver.
and I can say furthermore that there
are a good many of them who will
vote for free silver who are not talk
reed the Kem.
