BUFFALO, N. Y., May 25.
The Presbyterian general as
sembly today adopted by a
two-thirds vote a resolution
which in substance provides that
recognizing tho comity which should
exist between the churches represented
in their inter-church conference, acknowledging-
as they do the law of
Christ alone as supreme, we adviKe each
minister under the authority of this
assembly to refuse- to unite In mar
riage any member of any church whose
marriage Is known to such mlnlBter to
be prohibited by the laws of the church
in which such person holds membership,
unless such minister believes that In
the peculiar circumstances of a given
case his refusal would do injustice to
an innocent person who has been di
vorced for scriptural reasons."

Heated Argument in

Ohio Democrats Have Pved-Hot Time
in Convention Conservatives
in Control.
COLUMBUS. .0., May 25. Previous
to the assembling of the Demo
cratic State convention today the
conservatives had won in the pre
liminary meetings. All the 20S con
tested seats were given to the conser
vatives. R. B. Anderson of "Wupokoneta pre
sented the majority report of the com
mittee on credentials, seating the 20S
conservative contestants, signed by
eighteen of the twenty-one members of
tho committee. V. V. L.cax of Delaware
presented a minority report, signed by
three members of the committee, seat
ing the thirty-five radicals from Frank
lin county, instead of the thirty-five
conservatives. Former Congressman
John J. Ientr. spoke In favor of the
minority, while Col. W. A. Taylor spoke
for the majority report.
When Col. Taylor concluded thore
was a. disturbance on the platform. Mr.
Lvenb: took exceptions to what Col. Tay

took them. Taylor granbed them back
and a personal encounter In words fol

Lentz and Taylor both passed the lie
Tho minority report covered only the
contest in Franklin county and the roll
was called on substituting the minority
for the majority report. It was lost, 307
to aSO. The majority report of the con
servatives on credentials was then
adopted and the temporary organiza
tion made permanent.
The platform was then presented. It
declares that the Democratic party of
Ohio, while firmly adhering to all living
Democratic principles, as time and
again declared by Democratic conven
tions, recommend that the formal an
nunciation of purely national ques
tions be referred to the National con
vention, soon to convene at St. Louis.
The Ohio delegation is directed to
cawt the entire forty-aix votes in tho
National convention as the majority of
those present and voting shall decide,
when such majority shall determine
that course to bo advisable.
An etfort to have "the modified unit
rule" stricken from the platform failed.
A ticket headed by A. P. Sanders of
Ottawa for Secretary of States was
then nominated.

Women Participating.
Spocial to The Tribune.
ST. LOUIS, May 25. A great sensa
tion distinguished the end of the
biennial convention of the General
Federation of Women's Clubs
which closed at the Odcon tonight. The
Mormon question was brought up In
the form of a resolution, which was
unanimously adopted, as follows:
"Whereas, We recognize In the per
manence and sacredneus of the mar
riage relation a principle great in its
"Resolved, That each federation in
form ltelf on its State laws governing
inarriago and divorce, and that con
certed and systematic effort be made to
secure strict and uniform laws govern
ing thee important subjects.
"Resolved, That we extend our thanks
to the United Spates Senate for the
investigation into an organization
which "controls Its adherents morally,
politically and commercially,
"Resolved, That In view of the sys
tematic effort of that body to under
mine the Christian Htandards of mar
riage and to dominate State and Na
tional legislation each State federation
urge upon Its Senators to take such
legislative' aqtion as will prevent the
recognition, of a power which under
mines moral standards and the contin
uance of practices which "are contrary
to the principles of the, American peo
ple." Mrs. All" of Utah, in support of the
motion, made a bitter speech. She said
as a voter she had been asked by her
constituents what she stood for. "I
stand," she said, "for the integrity of
the American home. As a mother, as a
clubwoman, as a patriotic American
citizen, I ask the adoption of the res
olution." "If.." cried Miss Alice Reynolds, of
Utah, the only Mormon woman at the
convention, "the resolution relates to
the laws of my Country and my peo
ple, there is another side you must hear.
The Mormon women stand for purity."
Her ringing tones were heard to -the
farthest corners of the hall. "To find
a Mormon woman who does not would
be as difficult as to discover the pro
verbial needle in a haystack. As a
Democrat. I have voted in freedom; so
have most of my people. Look into
things and get the facts before you
attempt to pass such a resolution as
this. The Mormon women ." Rut
she was choked off in the middle of a
sentence on the score that the discus
sion was out of order.

LOS ANGELES, Cal., May 25. The
committee on Episcopacy of the
Methodist general conference has
mode the following assignments
of bishops to the various cities chosen
by tho conference yesterday as Episco
pal residences: New York. Bishop Fow
ler; Boston, Bishop Goodsell; Philadel

ference Much Work Accomplished.
In addition to assigning the sixteen
bishops of the church to their respec
tive residences for the next quadrlen
niurn, the conference adopted the re
ports of the Epworth League com
mittee and the committee on book con
cerns, balloted for editor of the Ep
worth Herald, and held brief memorial
services In honor of the memory of
some of the leading clergymen who have
died within the past four years.
The day was noted for the filibus
tering of those who were opposed to
the report of the committee on the con
solidation of church benevolences and
others who wished to discuss the ac
tion of the episcopacy committee In
making the assignments of bishops.
These persons tried In every way pos
sible under the rules of order to en
compass their ends, but were defeated
in the end and both reports wore
Bishop Fowler, who presided at to
day's sessions, had a strenuous day of
it. He was firm, however, and In many
Instances ignored parliamentary tech
nicalities entirely. There were appeals
from his decision, but the majority was
always with him and sustained his rul
ings. His good-natured repartee with
the objectors kept the conference in a
happy frame of mind, and convqlsed
the galleries.
