of Mod day; when
that was ended the
selection of seats
was continued and
Bishop FoHter took
the chair, and im
"racket" arose on
thereat question, a
number of the
that they couldn't
find their seats or
that somebody else had taken possession
thereof. It all blew over at last after two
(ravels had taken smashed in trying
to keep order, and Bishop Foster's voice
was temporarily disabled.
A New Presiding Officer.
Then Bishop Andrews took what was
left of a gavel and it was decided to
postpone the reading of the Episcopal ad
dress until today.
It was Foster's
duty to read it
anyhow, and he
could not have
done it, having
used up his voice

with figures, quotations, reports etc. Bish
op Foster is slow and deliberate in speech,
and it will require half a day at least to
deliver it. The address is beins secretly
guarded and not an inkling of the recom-
Jfiendatiocs it contains can be secured, al
though desperate efforts have been made
to do so.
Cot Their Seat at Last.
It was not five minutes after the decision
regarding the address when another quar
rel over seats arose, and for awhile the
conference was more like a "little diver
sion" in the national house than anything
else. There was much confusion, out of
which finally came the solution of the seat
problem, and everybody was satisfied (pre
sumably). The plan of organization, rules,
number of standing committees, etc, was
th en presented by Dr. Xeely, of Philadel
phia. The plan was adopted. An invita
frorn Lincoln to visit that city May 14
without expense was presented and was
accepted, and the convention adjourned
until 3 p. in.

devotional exercises the first real business
came up for real action. The first of this
was a committee reference of the question
of the payment of expense in the case
where a delegate did not appear until
after his reserve had been seated in his
place. It was an awk ward question, and
finally went to a committee of nine.
Revision of the Constitution.
Following this Dr. Xeely, of the consti
tution committee, to which the revision of
the constitution was referred at the last
quadrennial conference in 18SS, appeared
with thj report of the committee, which
recommended many changes and gave sev
eral interpretations not heretofore thor
oughly understood. Colonel Ray, one of
the members of the committee, had a mi
nority report. The minority report went
to the extent of recognizing women as lay

Clcslng Events of the Session.
A commit tee consisting of two from each
conference and five at large was ordered.
Mr. Shu m pert, colored, of Mississippi,

izations of this country, and it has every
where distinguished itself by maintain
ing the dignity of labor, its independence,

a guarantee tf individual worth and intel

appreciation of its usefulness and my
heartysympa hy with its purpose. Ifeelthat
it is because f what I have sincerely tried
to do, rather than what I have really done,

Horrible Burchery of a Woman
EES BODY FIENDISHLY MUTILATED.
A Parallel to the Work of the "Ripper"
Most Atroelon Crime in the History
of the City The Deed Done by the
Woman's Nephew, Who Calmly
Acknowledges Hi Deviltry Work of
Suicide Clubmen One Dead and the
Other Deterring Thereof.
Chicago, May 4. Mrs. Bridget Walsh,
wife of Michael Walsh, a teamster in the
employ of J. V. Farwell & Co., was butch
ered in a most cruel and horrible manner
at her home at 5 o'clock yesterday after
noon. The crime fa the most atrocious in
the criminal history of Chicago. The
methods of the murderer were those of
Jack the Ripper," and were more fiendish
in detail than those employed by the
Terrible Sight for a Haaband.
The woman and her murderer had been
drinking beer during the afternoon, and it
was this that led to the arrest of the per
petrator, as be had gone for the beer once
or twice. When Walsh came home to sup
per at 6 o'clock in the evening he found
the body of his wife on the floor, destitute
of clothing excepting a pair of shoes. A
pair of scissors was stuck up to the hilt in
her right breast, and by actual count there
were sixty-five Jagged stabs in her body.
One great gash across the abdomen allowed
the intestines to protrude.
A Hideon Feature of the Crime.
But the most hideous part of the crime
was discovered when a portion of a broom
handle three feet long was found protrud
ing from her body. This with wounds
about the woman's loins gave the butch
ery a startling resemblance to those of the
Kipper" fiend. The police were at once
notified and soon made the discovery that
Thomas Walsh, nephew of the dead wom
an, had been at the house nearly all the
afternoon. Walsh was promptly arrested.
The Criminal Coolly Confesses.
When confronted with the evidence of
his guilt he coolly confessed, giving com
plete details of the horrible deed. He
had made insulting proposals to his aunt,
been repulsed, attempted an assault and
seizing a pair of scissors with which the un
fortunate woman had attempted to pro
tect herself, he stabbed her nntil she lost
consciousness. After completing bis hide
ous work he left the house quietly and at
tended to some business without display
ing the least agitation, and was just re
turning to his home when errested.
SUICIDE SOCIETY AT CHICAG0L
One of the Fools Proves Himself Also
Quite a Miscreant.
Chicago, May 4. If the story of Andrew
Rudman is to be believed, Chicago has a
full-fledged suicide society, two members
of which attempted to take their own
lives hist night. One, Joseph Kraker,
went quietly to Douglas park, put a bul
let through his brain and dropped dead.
The other, Rudman himself, tried to add
a little sensation to his taking off and is
still alive and uninjured.
The Pity 1 He Vet Lives.
He began by stealing 30, with which he
purchased a revolver. He then called on
his sweetheart, Eva Dressier, shot at her
without effect, chased her father around
the block firing as he ran, sent a couple of
bullets through the front door as t he per
spiring parent reached the house, shot at
a crowd of small boys, shot at his own
head and missed, and finally wound up by
sending a ball through the coat of the po
liceman who arrested him. Yesterday If?
confessed his connection with the Suicide
club, of which Kraker was also a member.
GLADSTONE'S NAME IS DOWN.
Labor In Kngland Print a Blacklist of
LOVDOX, May 4. Labor leaders publish
the blacklist of members of the house of
commons opposed to legislation in favor of
the eight-hour day. AH labor organiza
tions are instructed to oppose at the next
general election every man whose name is"
on the list. Among the gentlemen thus
blacklisted are John Morley, John Plar
fair, Mr. Gladstone, and Sir John Lubbock.

ous by their absence are Sir William Har

seph Chamberlain. The National Miners'
Federation is the greatest power behind
the movement formally inaugurated by
the publication of the blacklist, and as the
organization controls at least 3,000 or 4,000
votes its declaration will have a note
worthy effect upon the results of the next
CHICAGO, May 4. Delegates to the con
vention of the International Association
of Machinists held two sessions yesterday.
The morning session was devoted chiefly
to a controversy as to the standing of
delegates who failed to-provide themselves
