The lowering clouds of doubt and
disaster hovering over the Metho
dist Church, South, are melting
away, and out of the Churcn's tra
vail spiritual strength and power
Lnre bodies move slowly; and
the Methodist Church. South, is a
large body. It has taken time for
Its Bishops, clergy and laymen to
consult as to ways and means to
efface forever from their fiir
escutcheon the black blot of the
Publishing House scandal; but the
leaven is at work, and the Church
will be true to itself and true to the
Christ whose servant it is.
On this subject the Missouri An
nual Conferance last week sounded
the clarion note. This Is one of the
largest, one of the strongest, one of
the most able conferences in the
Church, and we take it that their
utterance is but the expressed
thought of the Church at large, and
that the Church's final action will
be along this line. Their resolu
tions were adopted with practical
unanimity, and without objection,
if we may judge from the report of
that Conferance's organ, although
Dr. Barbee himself was reported
present. These resolutions could
not have said more, and should not
have said less; they read as follows:
"Wherkas, There have been divers
publications concerning the representa
tions rrmde by the Book Agents of the
M. K. Church, South, to Senators of the
United States, pending the passage of a
bill to pay the claim for damage and
use of the publishing house of said
church during the late civil war; there
fore, be it
"ItfKolved, By the Missouri Annual
Conferance. that any wrong-doina: of
any kind whatever, either of deception
or evasion, by uny person or persons
authorized to act for the M. E. Church,
South, in hereby condemned.
"Whkrkah, the United States Senate
was deceived by the action of our Book
Agents, Messrs. Barbee A Smith, and
that said deception was either inten
tional or n Ignorance or out of sym
pathy with Stahlman: therefore be it
"lif sat veil. It intentional, the Book
Agents are unworthy of their place.
"2. If they did it in ignorance they
"3. If out of sympathy with Stahl
man, thev are unsafe; therefore, he it
"lif.siih ftl. That it is the sense of the
Missouri Annual Conferance that our
regnlaiiv constituted authorities oinrht
to take tlie proper steps lookiuz to the
suspension of the said airents.
" it further resolved. That we in
dorse the action of our bishops, looking
to the return of the $2SS,miO to the United
States (iovernment, and that we hereby
authorize them, in go far as we have a
voice or riuht as an Annual Conferance
whether in calling an extra session of
the (ieneral Conferance or otherwise.
to take such steps as are necessary, at
the earliest possible moment."
r rotn their reading you will note
that any wrong-doing of any kind
whether of deception or evasion is
condemned; second, that the Senate
was deceived, and bv the Book
Agents; third, that whether that de
ceptlon was intentional, through
ignorance or out of sympathy, the
aforesaid agents are unworthy, in
competent and unsafe, and should
be suspended; and last but not least,
they endorse the action of the
Bishops looking to the return of all
Good may yet come out of evil if
the Church will follow the lead of
the Missouri Conferance, and this
present calamity may be made a
future blessing by showing to the
world that neither by the power of
money, official prestige nor personal
lnfluence,can the Church be tempted
to do wrong.
Ik the same amount of interest
taken in the county at large as
being shown in Columbia, it is
hopeful sign and argues well for the
Democratic convention to be held
here next Monday, for the purpose
of nominating a legislative ticket
This interest has manifested itself
only in the last day or two, but is
growing, and promises to be lively
enough by the time the polls open
to-morrow, at 2 p. m. The dele
gates chosen to select our repre
sentatives, should be such men as
would themselves make good repre
sentatives. Birds flock together,
and men vote for their kind. Iu
choosing your delegates therefore,
choose those of your kind ; and then
they in their turn if they are true
t j their trusts will nominate men
of their kind. Which, as we have
Slid before, throws the responsi
bility, first and last upon the voter.
Djn'tfuil to vote, therefore, and
vote right. There will doubtless be
two tickets iu the field. Both of
them, perhaps, will have some good
names. But one of them will be
better than the other. And you
want to study them both ; their per
sonal and purpose; not only the
'created," but the "creators;" who
put these tickets out, and why; for
In politics, you know, there are
"wheels within a wheel." Our
Democratic readers should be care
ful also in selecting Executive Com
mitteemen for this district. They
should choose men of character, and
Democrats who never desert their
colors. The party is not in good
shape in this county, and in the
next two years will need wi-e coun
sel and safe leaders; the strongest,
most representative men of the dis
trict, therefore, should be placed up
on th,e County Executive Committee.
. . m .-
A report is current that an effort
is being made to nominate candi
dates at the legislative convention
next Monday, who are opposed to
what is known as the "fee bill;''
that is, the bill which places officers
on salaries, and will save to the tax
payers of the state annuilly thou
sands upon top of thousand of dol
lars. What truth there is in this
report, we are frank U say that we
do not know ; and it should not be
accented against any man's candi
dacy unless there is shown to be
some foundation for it. We men
tion it for the purpose of making the
suggestion that as this is a most im
portant question, and that there
may be no mistakes or regrets there
after, a resolution would be in order,
before the nominations are made,
instructing our representatives to
vote to sustain said bill and against
any and all amendments curtailing
or abridging its good work. If any
of the candidates hold contrary
views, they could then step down
and out; for certainly none of them
would care to go to the legislature
and vote either against their con
sciences or the wishes of their con
stituents. We hone as much interest will be
taken in the Congressional race on
the 24th, the district over, as prom
ises f,o betaken iu the legislative
race here in Columbia to-morrow.
When the people are aroused and
enough interested to go to the polls,
they generally vote right. Vote for
the man whose past and present,
private and public, personal and
political record you most approve,
and, whatever the result may be,
your conscience will not hurt you.

The Grand Army of Pension
chasers now meeting in Cincinnati
are very indignant with H. Clay
Evans for not allowing more than
50,000 or 00,000 new names to go on
the pension list thirty-three years
after the war. It certainly is an
outrage. There are now only about
100,000 more persons on the list than
all the surviving soldiers and sail
ors and the widows of soldiers and
sailors of the last war. A great
many meritorious deserters, heroic
camp-followers, intrepid jayhawkers
and gallant bounty-jumpers are still
out in the cold. It is an infernal
outrage that these patriots can't get
a whack at the stuff. Memphis
If Mr. McKinley would cast his
weather eye toward Vermont, he
would observe that the democrats in
Tuesday's election, elected fifty rep
resentatives in the lower house
against nineteen in 18SK5, aud eleven
in 1.S94; also that the republican
plurality will be about 23.000 against
38.000 in 18it. If he will inquire, he
will find that the army scandals
have no little to do with this demo
