The rules of order were theu suspended, to allow the minority of the Hook Com mittee's report to tie read; with it was read also , the report of Mr. iiuuu, the accountant appointed some time ago t>y Dr. Carlton.

( The hooks are balanced hut once n year. an<l In | some particulars, he says, they have not hern i balanced for twenty years, and it Is simply 1m- | posslhle to arrive at a .Inst result. He is, there i fore, unable to say whether there have been J any fraudnlent purchases of material or mis appropriation of the funds of the Concern to per sonal interests. lie therefore arrives at no eonelu !

This gentleman t ikes Mr. KllbretUto account and 1 atmlv7.es his report with a degree of recklessness that should make the latter tremble loi lus chance of heaven. PR. I.ANAIIAN'S RKl'ORT. As soon as this report was read Dr. Lanaiian moved to lay the papers on the table until his own report, should he read. Tills was done. The Doe j tor's report asserts that four years ago Dr. Carlton opposed the re-election of his then associate, Dr. I'ohtcr, on the ground that young Porter hud a 1 monopoly of the purchase of paper, lo the damage of ! the Concern, and yet this person was allowed in enjoy this monopoly until Dr. I.anuhan discovered j the fraud and stopped It. lie al?o questioned Good- j enough in regard to the purchase of paper, and this | I person contradicted himself repeatedly, and which ! resulted in allowing him to resign rather , j than he discharged.

His dishon -sty is also shown by the amount ol work turned out compared with the amount of mill-.'rial furnished therefor. Thus, for instance, hi Isiis Hoff man used f44,202 ort of stock in turning out. $90,1101 "1 of work. Ill the years Isto and IK71 the present superintendent of tin* bindery has used f 42.540 1'| of stock ill turning ollt $170,ISO IS of work.

The Doctor closes Ids report with corroborative extracts irom ; I lie reports or Messrs. Kilbreth and (limn, and asks that this subject be referred to a special committee, ; Immediately after the leading had ceased Dr. ! Ai.bKN, of .southern Illinois, moved to refer the | papers to the Committee on Hook Concern, i Dr. Knsi.kk amended to refer It to a special com ' uiitt.ee of two from each book committee distrid. j Judge McAi.mont, of Eric, further amended that j they he referred in a committee of thirteen, to lie appointed by the bishops, aud thai the committee be authorized Io sit apart during the sessions of Con- , terenee until their report is rcadv to be presented, j The Judge ably advocated ins own motion. Dr. Lanaiian imped no attempt would lie made to stillc discussion on this important sutiject, and that Mo! press would not have occasion to say that thin General Conference, in the light of day, refused to probe this mutter to the bottom. He bad other matters akin to this which lie desired to lay before the special committee, and for which he should ask for another committee if this one Is refused. Judge McAlniont's amendment was then tabled. Dr. (ji'KAf. then moved and Pi. Knsi.kk accepted tliai the delegations front the several book commit tee districts appoint tills special committee ol two from each disi rict. Dr. Ivks insisted that instead of trying to save ? time, us it is urged these motions arc designed to do, they should the rather seek to satisfy 1 lie Church. No more important matter will come lie fore the Conference than this, and every Anuuiil Conference should be represented In this commit tee. if tliis vote prevails half of them will be un represented; but, however constituted this commit tee may be, some one will charge It with being "packed," for they will have NOTHINO BUT FRAUDS ON THIS QUESTION. They want another commit tee of one Irom each Conference, but are not satisfied with this Hook Concern Committee, in which every Conference is represented,and many of them arc not on an.v other committee. They have been nominated by the del egations. He dpi not care much what committee i shall have charge of this matter, be wanted all the devils east out, If all the swine in the Hook ( oncern j are carried Into the sea b.v thetn. (Applause.) His anxiety was to have the whole truth in this matter j brought ont. _ . Judge Goodrich agreed with Dr. Ives, lie, too, | wanted every Conference represented, but to satisfy the church rather than the secular press. He wanted the whole truth to come ont and both sides should lie represented in the committee, lie paid a very high compliment, to the chairman of that committee, Mr. Bonner, President of the Hoard of Trade in St. Louis. There are a great many tilings, he said, that live upon opposition, and tills Hook concern matter is one of those that caunot be got rid of until it dies out. Dr. Stubbm offered Ills resignation from the stand ing committee on Hook Concern which was ac cepted. Ho wanted Hie Conference to grant the right to challenge the members of that, committee for cause. l)r. Knstee's substitute was laid on the table by a vote of 299, no opposition vote being asked for or taken. AN ATIMIKKK OK TAI.KNT. Jmtge RF.TNot.ns. of Brooklyn, while admiring the talent of the standing committee, was opposed to referring these papers to themlieenuse they would of necessity refer ihe whole matter to a sub-coin mil tec and the Conference would not know who they were. There are at least eight men on the committee w ho have already prejudgod litis ease, w hereas the committee should is- constituted of un biassed men. 11 Mr. Alltireth's reoort Is to be ac eepfed a# complete correct then the matter may be referred to tin* standing committee. Hut it not we hIiuII lie no nearer the end of thts trouble than we urc uow. If ho stood there ur the friend or an the counsel of nr. laiiiahau, as had been charged, he would .?sk nothing inoro no better lor his defence tPun those reports which had Is1' u read. 'I'hi? investigation must be instant ami con stant to satisfy the Chun U. Tliey luid better elect their iiishopM, appoint ilielr others and go home unless this question is settled. They can't take any of the reports aud puss a timely verdict save only in one direction. I>r. i 'i.ahk, of Lric, moved to report to a commit tee of one from each Annuul t'onh repce. can't eisn an fNKt\?si:n committee. Judge Lawks nci; thought there waa evidence of fvniu! and eviileiiee against it m the reports read. That a committee is needed can't lie doubled; that j (In.' committee should not is* appointed by the I l>h hops is evident, because they have expr< used an optuiou on some parts of these pn.e? ?'?dings, lior r hould the ease be referred to the standing commit- t toe. He therefore moved that the several Annual Conference delegations meet and report Un it s lee- ; I Ion of one from each delegation to in appolut ul I i>y the (ienerai Conference on ttus coiuiuittec. A motion to adjouru at this point was voted down. The previous ijueatton was called for, but 1 not ordered. Mr. Km a kt wanted a division-of the i house, so that ministers anil lay men mipht vote ( ?epanttcly, but this waa denied, and, after a aeri a | of paiTlamentary skirmishes of fin- sort, a motion I I to adjourn was carried bv a vote of 2l'l to luO. To day the fraternal delegates will be introduced to j t tie (ton fore nee, und Hie Hook Concern contestants will have a truce of a day. AFRICAN METHODIST CONFERENCE.
