THE METHODIST CONFERENCE.
The Cblneie Exclaalon BUI the Princi
pal Subject of DUcomIou. '
Omaha, May 6. For the first time
since i he conference opened the sun
came out this morning and t,hoce
brightly. As a result, long before
Bishop Mallalieu called the conference
to order nearly every delegate was in
his seat, while the balconies and seats
set apart for spectators presented a
brilliant scene, more women being
present; than at any other session. Dr.
Burt o! Italy conducted the devotional
exercises, assisted by Chaplain Ic
Cabe, 1 he evangelistic singer.
The action of President Harrison in
signing the Chinese exclusion act last
night within a few hours of delivery to
him is being seriously criticised by the
delegates. The committee appointed
yesterday to prepare a memorial pro
testing against the bill telegraphed
the President last night concerning
the ma tter and they are not satisfied
with the action of the President.
The Committee on Chinese exclusion
split on their reports. Judge Lawrence
of Chin offered the majority, which
re c, m i: ended that as the President had
for good reasons signed the bill the
matter lie filed and nothing more be
d inc. Dr. Sw indelessaid that the con
ference must at once take some
steps to protect its missions in
China. Naught could be done,
he said, to prevent the law; but
something must be done to protect the
Chinese in the United States and the
Americans and the missionaries in
China or there is liable to be loss of
life. Dr. Quealy moved that the ques
tion involved in relation of the church
to the Chinese gestion be recommitted
to the committee for future action.
Judge Lawrence believed the matter
should be referred to another commit
tee for further consideration and con
siderable discussion followed.
Dr. Lindells said the bill was the
most iniquitous measure ever passed by
the Coigress of this country.
The conference is now in a position
to do I usiness. One of the first things
is the election of an editor of the Cen
tral CI ristian Advocate, owing to the
death of Dr. Benjamin St James Fryth.
The selection must come from the
West. Rev. W. T. Smith, of Des
Moinen; Dr. Kynett, of central Iowa,
and Chancellor Creighton, of the Ne
braska University, are candidates, with
the latter leading.
- The bishops announced the following
committee on Columbian exposition:
Thomf.s P. Earne, Cincinnati; L. E.

of erection of parochial schools if the
combi ie should be indorsed and ap
proved by them from their pulpits.

ONE BLOCK IN RUINS.
$1,000,000 FIRE IN NEW YORK
The Meat Establishment of 8chwarr
chtld ft Sulzberger Dnrned to the
Ground Two Firemen Seriously
New York, May 6 The whole block
bounded by First avenue and the East
river, between Forty-fifth and Forty
sixth streets, and occupied by Schwarz
child & Sulzberger, the extensive meat
dealers, was almost totally destroyed
by a fire which started at 2:30 o'clock
this morning and raged, with', the ex
ception of a short interval, until nearly
6 o'clock. The b'ock consisted of a
series of buildings four stories high.
At first sight it appeared as if the
flames were the result of strikers' spite.
Twenty-five of the men employed in
the tallow house struck yesterday, and
became so threatening that police re
serves . were sent to the building, but
their services were not required. Mr.
Sulzberger of the firm says that the
fire could not reasonably be attributed
to the strikers. The difficulty had been
satisfac'-orily settled last night and the
men were to have resumed work to
d.y. In ithe basement Tof the slaughter
house, which was almost the last of the
buildings to 'catch on fire, were 700
bullocks and 700 sheep, the property of
the New York Veal and Mutton com
pany. As soon as the first alarm was
sounded all the cattle were let loose
and turned pell mell in droves into
the streets, to be ultimately
herded together and housed in the
stock yards in the vicinity.
At 4:30 o'clock the flames subsided in
a measure and the firemen thought
they had them under control. The
lull, however, lasted only fifteen min
utes, when the conflagration broke out
afresh, and with renewed vigor. The
firemen became frightened and addi
tional alarms were sent out until there
were twenty-seven land engines and
two fireboats throwing water upon the
burning buildings. By 6 o'clock the
flames were under control.
The damage cannot be correctly esti
mated until the b oks of the firm are
examined. The damage done to the
buildings, which were mostly frame,
will not exceed flOO.000. Mr. Sulz
berger could not give any positive
estimate of the stock on hand or of
the machinery, but said the total loss
would be fully 8800.000 or $1,000,000
and that it was well insured. Two
firemen, Levens and Hannigan, had
their legs broken by falling beams.
They were removed to the hospital.
THROUGH A BRIDGE.
Serloue Wreck Reported on the Toledo,
1'eorla Western Road.
Springfield, 111., May C It is re

Clevelaud and Gray in Indiana.
Indianapolis, May 6. The Cleveland
men on the Indiana delegation to the
National convention have been in cor
respondence since their appointment
two weeks ago and are said to have
mapped out a plan by which they pro
pose to force the Gray men, whom they
concede to be in the majority, to the
support of Cleveland. They will insist
that the name of Gray shall not be pre
sented to the codvention unless it be
comes apparent that Cleveland cannot
be nominated and will demand that
the thirty votes from Indiana be cast
solidly for Cleveland as long as he is in
Burial Instead of a Marriage.
Stitart, Iowa, May G. Instead of a

Anarchist IS'IcboIl Convicted.
London, May 6. Mowbray, the
tailor, and Nuholl, the journalist, in
dicted for inciting to murder of Home
Secretary Matthews and Justice Haw
kins, were tried to-day. Nicholl wa
convicted and sentenced to eighteen
months' imprisonment at hard labor.
Mowbray was acquitted. The offense
complained of consisted in the publica

St. Paul Liquor Failure.
St. Paul, Minn., May 6. Daniel A.
Aberle, one of the leading wholesale
and retail liquor dealers of the city,
made an assignment to-day for the
benefit of his creditors. Alexandet

RUDINI STEPS DOWN.
He and Ills lTntire Minister Announce
Komk, May 6. The Marquis di Rudi
ni to-day announced the resignation of
the minisirj-, iu consequence of the
vote or want of confidence in the
ChamWr of Deputies yesterday. Great
political excitement continues to
prevail and all parties are discussing
the future. While it has been as
serted, bemi-olScially, that the foreign
policy of the government will not be
affected, the general impression is that
it will inevitably be affected, as the
troubles that have led to the resigna
tion are entirely due to financial dis
tress caused by the maintenance of
Italy's place in the triple alliance. The
Austrian and German Representatives
are in constant communication with
their governments as to the crisis, and
it is reported that the utmost anxiety
is felt both in Berlin and Vienna. At
the French embassy there is little con-O.-alment
of the joy felt over the down
fall of the Rudini ministry and the
causes leading to it, which Frenchmen
unofficially declare insure the sever
ance of Italy from the triple alliance.
King Humbert has not yet signified
whether he will accept the resigua
t'on of the ministry.

sign so that he may take up unincum
bered the duties he laid down when he
left his journalistic position to go to
St Petersburg, and the approaching
presidential campaign he cites as a rea
son for his action. While there is no
doubt about his resigning, Minister
Smith is averse to publicly announcing
the fact before he has seen the Presi

and an enthusiastic indorsement will
be given him.
The Santa Fe Wreck.
Fort Madison, Iowa, May 6. The
scene of the Santa Fe wreck was vis
ited this morning and it presents a veiy
sad appearance. The cars are all com
pletely demolished, with the ex
ception of the last sleeping car,
which remained on the track.
The dead bodies were laid out at
Bullards and Johnson's undertaking
establishment last night and presented
a shocking spectacle. The woman
