CLEVELAND, odw, May i?.?me deadlock In tho Methodist Episcopal pfneral conference over the election of j two blshopto was broken to-da^ by the fflcctlon of Dr. Charles C. McCabe, of | New York, and. Dr. Earl Cranston, of Cincinnati. It was apparent when the delegates assembled this morning that | they were tired of the balloting, and i were determined to bring matters to an I lituo. The ball was set roiling by Her. C. L. Stafford, of I6wa. who moved that the election ot bishops be in den- ! nltcly postponed. This precipitated a I lively discussion and the motion was ! defeated. Then Dr. A. B. Leonard, of I C.'nclnnatl, moved that In future ballots ! th?> name of no candidate be announced wh<> revived leas than ten v^t??j?. That motion carried and it smashed the deadlock. From the first the conference had lv*n \ o>tittg for two candidates on each ballot; that i*. each dedicate had two vote* on each ballot. On every ballot from on<* to two hundred votes were J scattered among a score or more of can- I didares who had no cbance of election. A? *oon as It was decided that candidates must receive more than ten votes to be cisnted the delegates soy that the I tim* t > do something had arrived. A combination was quickly formed. On the fourteenth ballot Dr. McCabe's vote jumped to, 2*8 from 190. what he had received on the ballot taken last J nisht. and Dr. Cranston's from 2-15 to :*l. That Indicated clearly who the | J. idfra were, and on the fifteenth ballot Dr. McCabe'a vote roue to 344 or dght more than were needed to elect, ufille Dr. Cranston polled 328, or eight Irsf than were needed. The next ballot gave the victory to Dr. Cranston, and th? west and east had both elected theJr candidates. Bishop WaUlrn. speaking of the refuI: said it was an Ohio day. Both of the bishops (lected are natives of the Hurkeyi stale, and six of the sixteen bishops new on the board were born in Ohio. They are Stephen M. Merrill, John M. Walden, Isaac W. Joyce, Charles C. McCabe, Earl Cranston and James M. Thoburn. TWO KEW BI8H0P8 Ktccfrit by (lie file I hod 1st Conference. .Mct'ubc and Cranston Chotrn. CLEVELAND, Msy 19.?The M. E. no i mnftr?iu? haw elected C. C. Mc Cabe bishop on the fifteenth ballot with a plurality of eight votes* Karl ?rnnston was elected on the sixteenth ballot with a plurality of thirty. Bishop Bowman presided for the second time to-day. The reading of the Journal had Just been completed when Kev. C. L. Stafford, of Jc>wa, moved to l^atpone indefnitely the election of bishops, and In support of the motion t>aid there were a large number opposed t > Increasing the episcopal board. Dr. J. M. Buckley opposed the motion. The committee, he raid, recommended three bishops, and the conference, by a majority of twenty-five, substituted two. He reviewed the conference of 1S88, when eight ballots were taken. To Indefinitely postpone would make the conference ridiculous in the eyes of the world. Dr.' Buckley says tho difficulty now lies In the fact that individuals who have no possible chance to secure the necessary two-thirds vote for an f lection, still permit friends to vote for them. It Is manifest, he said, that no election couiu oe Di-vuicu U uiu uwutiKia persist In voting for those who cannot be el ated. If Impossible to elect, then the conference can adjourn, and the men who blocked th* election will have to bear the responsibility of it. Dr. J. R. Mace, of New Jersey, favored the motion to postpone Indefinitely the lection and charged that the great l ?ly of the church does not want any more bishops. He sold the doors had teen opened In order that Inspiring men mitrht see new fields. Instead of being ridiculous, he said, the general church would be greatly relieved, as the present bishops can do all the work. Rev. C. D. Hills, of New Hampshire, presented a substitute, which provided that if no election should result on the fourteenth ballot tbe Ave hlgheat onea ^nly shall be voted for on the fifteenth ballot; If no election should then result, only the highest four ahull be voteil for *-n the sixteenth ballot, and this process ' hull bo continued until an eleotlon results. CrJes nf "No, no" greeted Its reading, , a ad Bishop Jiowman ruled It out of order. Dr. A. J. Kynetl. of Philadelphia, said the voting is a good thing In that It hoidn the delegates In their seats and at the eame time business is being diaof In a remarkable manner. Ho eulogized the candidates for bishops and particularly JloCabe, I At this Juncture Rev. R. T).

It was carried with a whirl, anil na Dr. McCabe walked down the aisle the demonstration was repeated, liut Dr. McCabe begged to be excused from saying or singing anything. The conference ordered no report made on those who received less than nine votes, and the conference, resumed Its deliberations. Th fifteenth ballot showed a gain for ^IcCabe of eighty-six, for Cranston of sixty-seven, for Hamilton a loss of forty, for Butt* n loss of eleven, for Neely a .low of aixty-two, for Bowen a low of Ave. The drift waa then toward the Rev. Earl Cranston. The .alxteenth ballot was aoon announced. resulting In the election of Dr. Cranston as the second bishop. Jn all, ?04 votes wore cast, making 336 necessary for a choice. Of these Cranston received 306, thus electing him by thirty. Butti: received 'eighty-two. Hamilton thirty-six. Neely ten and scattering ten. The conference went wild again and cheers filled the hail. Handkerchiefs were waved and the noise continued for several minutes, while Dr. Cranston walked forward and bowed. An attempt by Judge Caples.of Oregon, to make the election unanimous was howled down. The conference then took up the election of two hook agents for New York and two for Cincinnati. Dr. Hugh Eaaton was re-elected for New York and pending the election of the others, the conference adjourned. There was a hot discussion before the Committee on missions on the proposition that persons may specify the purposes for which special gifts to the church shall be used. Bishop Thoburn Is exceedingly anxious that this be dune. A few days ago, he said, that If baiter support was not given the mission work in India, one out of every six missionaries there would be compelled to return home. To-day he aald that while that might not be the result, a continuance of present conditions might prevent his returning to India. The change proposed met with the opposition of Dr. McCabe and Mr. Leonard. The matter was held over. The book committee to-day recommended subsidies amounting to JJ8.2SQ per year for several of the church paPcrs* _______ THE NEW BISHOPS.

In the fall of 1862 he enlisted as- chaplain In the One Hundred and Twenty-sixth Ohio Infantry. and on the battlefield of WlrnChester. Virginia, was taken prisoner and sent to Libby prison, where he remained four months. When released he joined the regiment, but was pressed Into service of the Christian commission. In whose Interests he made large collections. At the close of the war Chaplain McCabe was stationed at Portsmouth. O. in 1868 he was appointed agent of the Church Extension Society and subsequently assistant corresponding secretary of the Board of Church Extension. He Is now secretary of the Missionary Society. He took part in preparing the "Mlnnowe Hymns,'.' a book that has had an Immense circulation. He Is often referred lo as the ''singing chaplain," and the champion pleader for contributions in the Methodist Episcopal denomination. Dr. Earl Cranston, the other new bishop, Is a gentle-spirited man, of mild manners, and unpretentious bearing, with a good, wholesome face. Iron gray beard, clean shaven upper Up. and an ample dome. which glistens triumphantly through n few scattering locks. He ic of medium height, with business an<! oratorical qualities far beyond medium, tor tho former have made him for twelve years a superb book agent of the church and the latter had previously sustained him In a high posit Jon as a preacher. At a previous conference he came near being elected bishop, as he received at that time, 200 votes.

A communication was read from Mrs. W. \V. Beck,'*ot Seattle, Washington. The letter was a stirring appeal to the I board to carry the missionary work Into I the great fleIt! of the far west.

FEATURE OF THE DISCUSSION Was the Pita of Congressman Busk, of Louisiana, Against Any (tort of IUstrlc tire Legislation Beyondthat How on Uie Statate Books, which Kielwtu Paupers and Criminals ? Representative Stone Makes a Strong Argument for the Restriction of Immigration, which of Lata Has Exceeded the Katnral Increase of Population, WASHINGTON, May lO.-The home to-day entered upon a two day*' debate ot the immigration bills reported from the Immigration committee. Mr. W. A. Stone, of Pennsylvania, and Mr. Traceweil, of Indiana, argued for a restrictive measure; Mr. Corliss, of Michigan, for his bill, designed to put on end to Canadian competition with American labor and Mr. Morse, of MnssachuHetts, and Mr. Dartholdt, of Missouri. for the educational test bill. The feature of the debate to-day was the plea of Mr. Buck, of IjOuisiaiM. against any sort of restrictive legislation beyond that now on the statute books, which excludes paupers and criminals. Before the debate began a resolution was adopted Instructing the sergeantat-arms to summon the clerks of the counties In the Eleventh district of Illinois, for the purpose of counting the ballots in the PJnnker-Downlng con iwi. vne due 01 j?ir. vswvua, \?vy./, ?? his seat was confirmed anil Messrs. Steele, (2nd.), Cousin*. (Iowa), and McClelland, (N\ V.), were appointed on the board of visitor* to West Point At 12:30 p. m., the debute on th* Immigration hills wan opened by Mr. HarthI oldt. (Hep., Mo.), chairman of the Immigration committee. Mr. lturtholdi argued that there was i no question so much talked of and so little understood'as the problem of Immigration. There was, he thought, too much passion and prejudice In the de, mand from certain quarters In favor of the exclusion of foreigners. Mr. W. A. Stone, of Pennsylvania, the author of the Stone bill, explained Its provisions and advocated its passage. The country, he argued, had long suffered from unreasonable Immigration. The immigration of the last ten years had exceeded the natural Increase. 1 Mr. Bartholdt challenged this statement, contending that the natural In j crease WHS i.UW.UUV U jnn, niuiE ! immigration had averaged only about a quarter or a million a year. I Mr. Stone raid that during the hard times of the past three years, Immigration had fallen ofT, but with the prospect of returning prosperity and high ! wages It would increase to startling I proportions. He did not oppose immlI gration as long as we could assimilate the foreigners, but they were coming | too fast. In places In his own state 1 there were localities where the English I language was not spoken, and where | English newspapers were not read. Our laws were neither undeolood. njjr re-. | spected. His bill would"transfer the I inspection system from our ports to the , ports from which the Immigrant* sa 11?>d. He had read two letters, one from I Mr. Hltt. chairman of the foreign afI fairs committee and ono ffom Charles Emory Smith, formerly minister to Hussla, testifying to the feasibility of | his bill.

It was the foreign bom cttlxen who held citizenship not as a rlfcht, but as a privilege. The American republic its founded on a spirit of the broadest humanity. America for the world, as Washington and Jefferson thought, was what he wanted. America was big enough to take all who would come. At 6 p. m. the house adjourned. Rfttaln I'rocmllngf, WASHINGTON, D.

IMPRISONMENT CLAUSE In the lutfr-fUate Uw Coitildsretl by the llouac Committee. WASHINGTON, May 19.?The house committee on commerce to-day considered again the Sherman bill to repeal the imprisonment clause of the Interstate commerce act. Recently the bill which had been placed on the calendar of the house was withdrawn by the committee, because of a belief held by some members that the recent decision by Justice .Brown that railroad men can testify regarding infraction* of the law by their corporations without Incriminating themselves made the bill unnecessary or Inadvisable. Last week there wan a somewhat stormy meeting over the bill In which charges of railroad Influence were made and to-day It was decided by a vote of ten to four to restore It to.Its former place on the house calendar.

John J. Relthmunn, president, and John J. Relthtnann, Jr., vice president, Charles M. Clinton, cashier, and Charles Kunzemilier, assiHtant oashler, of the German National Hank, are charged with having falsified figures in the report to the comptroller of the condition of that inHtltution on May 4, 1893. It is said that charges of a mora serious nature against these men-are being considered by the grand jury. It Is also announced that O. E. Miller, of Chicago, hus been indicted on the charge of embezzling $125,000 from the Commercial National Bank, and that Charles H. Dow, who was president of the Commercial, Ih charged with having conspired with MUter to defraud the Commercial depositors, and with having violated the national banking law by loaning to Miller $1-15,000, whereas under the law the bank could not loan to one Individual or company more than 10 per cent of Its capital stock, which was $200,000. O. E. Miller iigured prominently In Denver prior to the panlo of 1893. He was and still Is the head of the Miller Hernia Company, which handles trusses and other patents for the euro of rupture, and has offices In Denver, Chicago and other cities. Investigation of Miller's financial affairs since the crash of lani has developed the fact thst his entire indebtedness to the National Bank of Denver aggregated $3*5.000. Of this amount $192,000 was secured from the Commercial and German National Banks, and the remaining $153,000 was borrowed of banks that survived the ti.a Am^Iwih MielnnoL which suspended recently, 1b said to have been a loser. Receivers Prank Adams, of the Commercial National, and Zeph T. Hill, of the CJtrman National, have been pressing Miller for a settlement, but the truns dealer, who moved his reaidenoe to Chicago soon after his financial backers went to the wall, has been utandlng them off with promises to bond his company und square up his indebtedness. Miller floated bonds for Uti>,000, but not one ccnt of this money ever reverted to the banking institutions In Denver to which he was largely indebted.
