Omaha, May 27. Bishop Fitzgerald
presided at the closing session of the
rennial and there
was a good deal
of important bus
ness transacted at
the session, short
though it was.
However, a good

of business left
by a committee
bishop Fitzgerald, appointedfor
that purpose, and when the conference
met yesterday everything was ready to
push business from start to finish. A
resolution fallowing the bishops to appoint
preachers for five years, not taking into
consideration their services prior to '88.
was adopted. When the report of the
committee on revisals was reached excep

made that the paragraphs relating to the
use of tobacco had been omitted without
the knowledge of the committee.

What They Were Waiting For.
With the completion of this vote at
least one hundred delegates arose and has

resolution that in furture the ratio of pre
sentation to the general conference be
placed at one for every ninety instead of
one for every forty-five as it now is if the
annual conferences so vote. It was adop

Leave was shot and killed by Tom Henry

difficulty with Moore's wife, and Moore

Appeal from the Granite Striker.
New York, May 27. An appeal was
issued yesterday by the joint committee of
the granite industry to all organized
workingmen. After reciting the nature
of the struggle briefly, it concludes: "In
this hour ot our great need we call on you,
brothers, for succor. Our cause is your
cause, our rights yours. Therefore will
you help us to defeat and rout this tyran
nical trust, as a victory for this trust
means a victory for capitalistic power
against all labor."

The book committee recommended that

Dr. Berry, editor of the Epworth Herald,

VICTORY FOR THE WOMEN.
A Proposition by Which They May Get a

Dr. Moore again renewed his motion to
suspend the rules to consider the woman
question, but was voted down, the chair
deciding that it
took two thirds to
suspend. Dr. Moore
appealed from the
decision, but the

greeted this announcement.
The Quektlon Will Not Down.
.But the womau question was to nave a
final elucidation and decision in the con
ference and this came when the judiciary
committee reported as to the meaning of
the words "lay delegates." The commit
tee held that they meant male every time.
Dr. Moore was on his feet right away with
a substitute which declared that only the
principle and not the plan of lay delegates
is constitutional, and that the plan can be
interpreted or amended at will; that there
was no intention of the framers of the
law to exclude women and that the in
terpretation of "lay delegate" should be
either male or female. He spoke eloquent
ly in favor ot bis substitute and there was
a lively debate.
Dr. Hamilton's Amendment
lr. Hamilton, of Boston, ottered an
amendment that the proposition be sub
mitted to the annual conferences requiring
that the words, "must be male," be insert
ed after the words "lay delegates" wbere-
erer they appear in the discipline; and that
unless three-fourths of the annual confer
ences and two-thirds of the general confer
ences uphold it, then the law must be held
to mean male and female both. Dr. Big
gin, of Montana, favored the amendment
Out Only Ludicrous.
London, May 7. The premier of Eng
land had a narrow escape yesterday from
a serious accident. Lord Salisbury was
driving with a pair of horses and a
hrougham near the houses of parliament.
The horses were lively, and on St. James
street they began to kick. The coach
man tried in vain to control them. Giv
ing up kicking the horses made a dash for
a lamp ost. They rammed and jammed
the brougham against the lamp post, the
coachman meanwhile continuing his ef
forts to control the animals, and being as
iraniicas tney were.
Like a ltig Pill in a Box.
Policemen rushed to the rescue, and one
of them who tried to seize a horse by the
hind leg received a knock down blow.
The brougham was overturned and the
coachman thrown, receiving plaiuful but
not serious injuries. Lord Salisbury, who
weighs COO pouads, was entrapped in the
brougham. In the overthrow of the
vehicle his lordchin was himself nro,.
I turned and badly shaken and bruised. He
did not shout for help, however, but
waited patiently for the policemen and the
crowd to get hiiu out. Stalwart hands
were reached into the brougham, and his
lordship, limp and dishevelled, with his
hat jammed down, and his usually fault
less tie awfully wrinkled, was dragged to
the light like a burglar out cf a coalhole.
Footed It to His Office.
As soon as his lordship's feet touched
the pavement he straightened up and tried
to assume an air of affability and dignity.
In this he was not eminently successful.
lie thanked the policemen and others who
had assisted, enquired as to the coach
nine s injuries, and remarking that he
himself was all right started on foot for
the foreign office. II ;s lordship evidently
had a severe shake up, but there is no
reason to believe that he is badly hurt.

A SCURRILOUS NEGRO EDITOR.
He Published a Paragraph That Nearly

Memphis, May -7. A colored newspa
per, The Free l?;eech, by an editorial
paragraph stirred this community up al
most to the lyucUiuij point Wednesday.
In referring to the frequent lynching of
negroes, it said: "Xoliody in this section
of the country believes the old threadbare
lie that nepro men rape white women. If
southern white men are not careful they
will overrench themselves, and public
sentiment will have a reaction, and a con

damaging to the moral reputation of their

The article caued great indig ation
and a meeting of prominent citizens was
held. A word would have secured a
lynching, but finally a committee was ap
pointed to wait upon the colored editor,
a man named Fleming, and warn him not
to repeat such language. Editor Fleming

in its pacific intentions left town before
