marks. Washington, Oct 2U The ecumealial
Methodist conference, after a two weeks'
session spent ia discussing many ques
tions and interchanging ideas tor the tx n
eflt of humanity throughout the wor d,
entered upon its last day's session yester
day morning. The topic for the day was
"The Outlook." The secretary of the bad
ness committee announced that certa n
amendments bad been made upon the me
morial presented Monday appointing i n
executive commission to look after the
business of the next ecumenical confer
ence. The memorial as amended was
adopted. A resolution providing for send
ing a delegation to the Pan-Presbyterian
council at Toronto next fall was als
Christian Resonrces of the World.
Rev. J. S. Simon, of Kent, and Rev. J.
C. Watts, of Landon, discussed Christian
resources in the Old World. An essay on
the Christian resources of the Xew World
was read by Chancellor Edward Mayes, of
Oxford, Miss. He said that south of the
United States all of the New World was
Roman Catholic excepting the English
possessions, and in several count ries the
Methodist had a slight foothold. In the
United States and British possessions the
principal religion was Protestantism with
about one seventh of the whole popula
tion Roman Catholic. Rev. J. A. M.
Chapman made an address on the topic
Talked of the Church of the Future.
There was a throng in attendance at
the afternoon session, the church being
crowded with delegates, their families,
and visitors. An essay on "The Church of
the Future" was read by Rev. J. M. Buck
ley, of New York city (Methodist Episco
pal church). He said the church of the
present has always been the church of the
future. The church in some places had
lost its hold on Sunday; in England and
Scotland it has deteriorated, and in the
United States Sunday is becoming Con
tinental The revivals nowadays appear
to be more superficial, and conversions do
not seem to take a deep hold. Too little
Importance is paid to secret prayer and
family worship. Union between Roman
ism and Protestantism, he said, was im
possible. As to the future of the church,
whatever changes take place in the
churches, salvation must and will go for
ward. In the ultimate church the changes
will be few, and all people will be alike ia
Didn't Agree with Buckley.
Rev. W. J. Dawson, of Glasgow, Scot
land (Wesleyan Methodist church), de
livered an address on the same subject.
He said there were four notes to be taken
in regard to the church of the future.
' First, simplification; second, a democratic
policy; third, the social note, and last, in
tellectual comprehension. He took ex
ception to Dr. Buckley on the Catholic
question, and said the Romanists were
closer to the Methodists than the Unitar
ians, and he hoped that some day Roman
Ism would go hand in hand with Protest
antism. Bishop E. R Hendrix, of Kan
sas City, Mo., (M. E. church south), said
there would be a church of the future
with Jesns Christ as its corner-stone, and
that no church can survive that can not
dominate in intellect. The church of the
future should employ the majesty of truth
and the power of sympathy in its work.
THE CLOSING PROCEEDINGS.
Dr. Stephenson's Resolution of Thanks
Adjourned Sine Die.
The secretary of the business committee
announced that the two autograph books
In which the delegates had recorded their
Dames would be presented to the eastern
and western sections of the conference.
When the regular programme for the day
was completed Rev. Dr. T. B. Stephenson,
of England, offered a resolution of thanks
for the hospitality of the church, to the
city of Washington, to the officers of the
conference, and to the press for its accu
rate accounts of the proceedings of the
conference. He said that the eastern del
egates bad been treated so nicely that
they felt as thocgh they wanted to stay
A Historical Event.
He characterized the visit of the presi
dent to the conference as a historical
event and be extended thanks for the
great honor be had done them, as well as
himself, and said he bad set an example
for the beads of the other countries. He
concluded by saying that the closing of a
conference was always a sorrowful time
and that ten years must elapse before
they meet again and before that time
many who were in attendance at this con
ference would be gone. Chief Justice
Wade, of Australia, in speaking of the
resolution said he hoped the next ecu
menical conference would meet in Aus
tralia, and in leaving this city the meu
bers would carry away happy memorise
of this magnificent capital, and hearts
full of love and gratitude for the kind
nesses they had received.
Half an Hour of Prayer.
The resolution was adopted, and Bishop
Horst, in, behalf of the western section,
, -Mid the western brethren would misa
their eastern friends and be lonely without
tbem, but the fragrance that has oome
from this conference will remain in Wash
ington. A half hour was then devoted tc
prayer, and the conference adjourned sine

"OiV.WSONSw AT KILKENNY.
O'Brien Received with Mixed Cheers anal
Hisses Fights tn the Streets.
Kilkenny, Oct. 81. When William
O'Brien arrived her yesterday to attend
the county convention, he was met at the
railway statin by a great crowd of people,
who, upon seeing him emerge from the
waiting room, greeted him with mingled
cheers and hisses. A strong police escort
was drawn up in front of the station, and
as soon as O'Brien had taken his place in
the carriage which the committee had
provided for his use the officers formed
in a square about it and the progress to
the town hall began. As policemen and
carriage moved slowly along the enthusi
astic cheers of O'Brien's admirers were
met and sometimes drowned by the ugly
hissings and derisive jeers of the Parnell
ts in the crowd.
lxad Cries of "Murderer.
Presently the sinister cry of "murderer"
was heard, aud until the arrival of the
procession at its destination this epithet
fairly divided the honors of the occasion
with both applause and hisses. Imme
diately upon O'Brien's arrival at the
town hall the convention organized by
electing that gentleman as its presiding
officer. Routine business was promptly
despatched, aud then Michael Davitt was
selected to contest the seat for North Kil
kenny, made vacant by the death of Sir
John Pope Hennessy.
Amusements In the Street.
While the convention was in session
numerous rows were taking place between
the factionaries, and the streets were filled
with fighting mobs. So savage were some
of the attacks made by the partisans upon
their opponents that the police were re
peatedly compelled to separate the fight
ing men in order to prevent outright mur
der. In one or two instances the officers
fonnd it necessary to charge the crowds

A PRESS ASSOCIATION DIFFICULTY.
The Western Union Deprives Xewsmen of
Fl-e Wires, and Why.
Xew Tor.K, Oct. 21. Owing to a mis
ntderstanding between the parties of the
fl4t and second part, the Western Union
hm cat out several wires from the New
Ycrk Associated Press. The following
statement from Mr. W. B. Somervilie,
press agent of the Western Union Tele
graph company, tells the situation: "The
difficulty is about alleged obligations to
the Western Union Telegraph company
for leased wires and the wires about
wh ch the difficulty arose are leased by
the New York Associated Press.
The Western Associated All Right.
"The wires leased for the use of the
Western Associated Press have been paid
for, those for the New York Associated
Pre is have not been settled for and the
obligation counts from June last to the
present time, the amount being about
25,(00. The New York Associated Press
refuses to pay, claiming that the Western
Union's bill is offset by overcharges. The
wires cut out are one from New York to
Chicago, two from New York to Washing
ton, one from Washington to Richmond
and Norfolk, and one from Memphis to
New Orleans." The difficulty was ar
ranged yesterday afternoon, and the Wires
were fully restored.

Stockton, Cal. Out. 2. Marvin re
deemed his promise yesterday and put Su
nol over the kite-slinped track, beatii g
the best time of Maud S. by a clean half
second. Heavy, black clouds blew up
in 1 he west Monday evening, and for a
time it looked as if the judges would have
to fly the blue signal flag from their
stand yesterday and declare the events off.
The barometer, however, was found to be
rising slowly, notwithstanding the ill
omen in the western sky, and this indica
tion of fair weather allayed somewhat the
fears that it would rain.
Conditions Favorable at Last.
The morniug opened bright and sunny,
with very little wind blowing. Marvin
left bis hotel at half past two o'clock for
the track. He said he had msdc up his
mind not to speed Sunol unless all condi
tions were favorable, even if he got no
show against time this season. All
through the afternoon it looked bad, but
about 5 o'c'.ock the wind died down, and
only a gentle breeze blew. The track was
iu fine condition, and Marvin decided that
the conditions could ntver be more favora
ble. He bad the mare rubbed dowu care
fully, and when she came out she looked
less nervous than usual.
Moved Like a Machine.
None of the usual trials were needed,
for on the first attempt Marvin uodded
and was off. The mare made great time,
going the first quarter in 31 seconds.
Nothing could exceed the beauty of ber
pace. She moved like a machine and
Marvin eat like a statue. The same even,
beauti.'ul pace was maintained to the
half, which all timers marked at 1:04 fiat.
When this was announced It looked
bright for breaking the record.
The Runuing Mate Joins the Mare.
At the haif a running mate was wait
ing for Sunol and his presence seemed to
help the mare. Marvin urged her and she
weut over the third quarter iu superb
style, making the three-quarters in 1:37.
As many in the crowd were timing her, it
got around that the mare would probably
beat the world's' record, and no race track
probably ever saw a more excited crowd,
even when hundreds of thousands were at
Blagnincent Sight at the Finish.
All the prominent horsemen in the state
were iwstnt, aud it was a magnificent
sight as Sunn swept into the last quarter
and came dowu like the wiud. The run
ner had to pull out to keep pace with the
mare's flying feet, and Suuol parsed un
der the wire in 2:083. There could be no
q lest ion of the time, as six experienced
tune keepers tallied to the dot, and there
was no variation among many horsemen
present, who also kept time. To say that
the crowd was enthusiastic is to put it
Marvin the Hero of the Crowd.
Tbey would have taken Marvin up bod
ily and carried him to the stable, but te
kept his seat and merely acknowledged
his exploit by bowing. Horsemen here
will probably want to see Sunol speedid
on an old-fasbioned track to see what she
can do, but this record must s and if Al
lerton's is allowed. The Stockton track
is actually two feet longer than a mile, so
there can be no claim that Sunol did not
cover the full distance.

X Poverty -stricken Millionaire !
This seems a paradox, but it is ex
plained by one of New York's richest
men. "I don't count my wealth in
dollars," he said. "What are all my
possessions to me, since I am a victim
of consumption f My doctor tells ma
that I have but a few months to live,
for the disease is incurable. I am poor
er than that begrgar yonder." "But,"
iuterupted the friend to whom he spoke,
"consumption can be cured. If taken
In time, Dr. Tierce's Golden Medical
Discovery will eradicate every vestige
of the disease from vour system." "fll
try it," said the millionaire, and he did;
and to-day there is not a healthier,
happier man to be found anywhere.
The Discovery" strikes at the teat of
the complaint. Consumption is a dis
ease of the blood is nothing; more nor
less than lung-scrofula and it must
and does yield to this wonderful remedy.
"Golden Medical Discovery" is not
onljr an acknowledged remedy for that
terribly fatal malady, when taken in
time and given a fair trial, but also for
all forms of Scrofulous, Skin and Scalp
Diseases, as White Swcllinps, Fever
sores, Hip-joint Disease, Salt-rheum,
Tetter, Eczema, Boils, Carbuncles, Ery
