exercises were conducted by Rev. Isaac
Bullock. Bishop Miles tendered his resignation as
president of the missionary board, which was accepted,
and Bishop Holsey was elected to fill the

the Hamllne M.E. church, was Introduced to the
conference and made a brief address, and

affairs of the Israel church. He had been appointed
agent at the last conference, and an assessment
of 10 cents on each member of the connectiyn
was decided upon. He said that during
the past three years $669 33 had been raised, and
he was discouraged by the failure of the attempt

bishops of the A. M. E. church. Bishop Holsey
has been appointed corresponding secretary, and
he will arrange for the time and place of meeting.
At the Joint meeting of bishops the plan of union
will be discussed and agreed upon, and then will

the meeting of the bishops will result In a more
friendly and fraternal relation between the
branches of the church.

langerous and malicious boys. He would give 1

'ore the court on this charge will be sent to tbe '

who were arrested last week by Lieut Arnold and
License Agent Raff on charges of engaging In the
business of selling lottery tlckets,were put on trial
In the Police Court to-day. Mr. Gould, who was
tried for the same offence a few days ago, was also
In court, awaiting sentence In his case. Mr. A. B.
Williams appeared for defendants. License Inspector
Henry Raff was the first witness called by
tne government, and testified that on seeing an
advertisement In a paper he went to the defendants'
place of business (No. 60ft 14th street) la>t

with books and advertisements of the I.outslana
Lottery company, which were put In evidence.
THE CAFTCRKD TICEET8.

the tickets, and said the only thing left for him to
do was to remit the tickets and other property to

was captured, the property was turned over to the
police department, wnere It was subjert to the
order of the major of police. It was then d?vlded

A DECISION EXTKCTED NEXT MONO AT.
There Is but little doubt that the decision of the
Court in General Term will be announced on
Monday next in the case of Charles J. Gulteau,
convicted of the murder of President Garfield, and
sentenced to be hanged on the 30th of June, and It
Is understood that Judge James will deliver the
opinion of the court. The opinion will be a very
exhaustive one.cspeclally on the question of jurisdiction.
It Is now couccded that there will be no
dissenting opinion, l?ut It Is likely that each one of
the other Judges (Chief Justice Cartter, and Judges
MacArthur and llagner) will give hla individual
vlewa.
THE QUESTION* OF jnUSPICTTON.
There was considerable said in the argument on
the question of Jurlsdli tlon. and the case of Rolla,
decided by Judge Crawford In this District In 1848,
was cited, and some members of the bar have had
the Impression that one of the judges would follow
this case In dissenting. There was, however, a
case decided In Maryland a few years ago in
which the question of jurisdiction was ruled on,
but It was not cited In this case. In the Maryland
case a colored man, Bun Bell, was stabbed by
Charles Wallace on a steamboat at the White
House, on the Virginia shore of the Potomac, and
being brought to this city died here. The Maryland
authorities under requisition obtained the
custody of the murderer, and he was taken to
Port Tobacco for trlaL The points were raised
on the trial that Maryland had no Jurisdiction, as
the fatal blow was given outside the limits of the
state, and, admitting that the act was i
committed within the Jurisdiction of the state, <
death having occurred outside the state, the court |
had no Jurisdiction. The court <Judge Ford) held
that the Jurisdiction of Maryland extended to
high water mark on the Virginia side, and this act
was within the Jurisdiction of the court, and that
if the fatal blow was given in the state the court
had Jurisdiction, although the death took place (
elsewhere. i
WHAT DISTRICT ATTORNEY COBEHll.L SATS.
" Will the Court in Banc render its decision In
the Gulteau case Monday t" asked a Stab reporter
of the District Attorney to-day.
" Yes, I think we will have the opinion Monday.
I think there is little reason to doubt that the de- i
clslon will sust iln the point that the crime or mur- (
der is punishable where the blow is inflicted. The i
question about the sentence does not amount to
anything. Tue sentence will not be disturbed."
GCITEAtJ nOPRFCL.
The prisoner Gulteau, who was complaining of
a pain in the side a few days ago, has entirely re- 1
covered, and for a day or two has been In good
spirits, and he Is now very sanguine of a reargument,

The HeprcMion Bill. ^
REMARKS OP MR. GLADSTONE AND MR. PARSELL? a
THE BILL PASSED TO A SECOND READINO. S
In the debate on the repression bill in the house d
5f commons yesterday Mr. Gladstone stated that
the repression bill was not founded on the Phoenix
Park murders. It was contemplated long before r
their occurrence. He desired that the bill should 1
pass unaltered in its main Une3. It was not 8
rounded upon panic nor conceived in a party to
spirit. It was Intended to meet a great crisis in a D
spirit approved by all loyal citizens. Mr. Glad- &
stone's remarks were often cheered. Mr. Parnell's c
speech was most moderate. He said he had hoped c
that with the passage of an arrears bill and other h
unendments to the land act the land league aglta- D
Lion might be ended. *
Mr. Dillon stated that he had received a letter
from Mr. Patrick L^?n denying the assertion of
Mr. Forster relative to Mr. Sheridan, made in the t
house on Monday, and said that Mr. Forster _
should either prove the truth of his statement or r
retract it. o
Mr. Gladstone, replying to Mr. Sexton, denied tl
that the bill w.ts the outcome of English resent- u
merit. The government considered the repression *
and arrears bill inseparable and could not consent ?,
to the abandonment or essential Impairment of ,
jlther. The repression bill then passed its second "
reading by a vote of 883 against 40. 1
