Interest has so grown in the osteoma
of the conference trial of Rev. J. II. C.
Read, of Grand Island, and X isa Lottie
Zedcker under tbe charges heretofore
published, the following repoit of the
proceedings from the Grand Is and Inde
pendent is published. The Ba Mist con
ference was hell to consider tba findings
of the First Baptist church of Grand Isl
and, in the case of Rev. J. C H. Read
and Miss Lottie Zediker. Nine churches
of the conference were represer ted by 78
members. The finding of the First Bap

Inasmuch as J. C. H. Read and Lot

teem by this church and co mm unity.
we were greatly pained over thu reports
so damaging to their rtputation,
which have gone forth, but notwith
standing tneir repeated denial or any
wrong doing, and their attempts to
place tbe olame of these repo'ts upon
others, we upon investigation believe
that said reports are due to tleir own
misconduct, in which they have persisted
in spite oi puoiic opinion and tbe warn-,
iogsof their friends, a fact strongly
brought out by their conduct at the Pacific
hotel on tbe night of Feb. 23, 1891. said
conduct suggesting, if not involving,
gross immorality, and inasmuch as thi
scandal, because of the promicence of
the parlies, has brought reproach not
only upon this church but also upon the
Baptists of Grand Island and vie nity and
upon ino uaptist ministry of tee state;

The conference after carefully consid
ering the findings and evidence in the
case of J. H. C. Ra1 and Mis; Lottie
Zediker as giyen by First Baptist church,
endorse their findings and aoprove of the
action of said church, in offering to give
these findings in .his case to Hie locil
papers for publication. The conference
also approved the action of the church in
their resolution to send their findings to

field demand an advance for pick mining
equivalent to an advance of 10 cents per
ton in the Hocking field on the basis of an
eight-hour d.iy. and that no place resume
operations utitil all have received the ad-
vance, or until advised to resume by the
national executive board.
