Beahnstown, 111., May 8. The Illi
nois river is rising very rapidly at this
point. The recent heavy rains have
flooded the entire region. The whole
country from this city to tho bluffs In
Schuyler county, a distance of four
miles, is one vast sheet of water, while,
below at some points it spreads over
torritory varying in width from four to
seven miles. Thousands of acres of
valuable land ure submerged under four
feet of witter. Farmers who lived in
the bottoms have transferred their
stock and movable property to the
highlands. Fortunately the rise wa
anticipated and no loss of life has oo
ourred, but thousands of acres of fer
tile land will remain idle during this
Havana, 111., May 0. The Illinois
river at this point Is from bluff to bluff
four miles wide and is rising at the rate
of one inch an hour, tho highest water
known since 1849. Ten miles of tha
track of the narrow gauge railroad be
tween this city and (ialesburg aro two
feet under water, with many washouts.
No trains enn bo run for a month on

Kxrltlno; Scenes In a Wisconsin Town
Citizens Prevent the Laying of a ripe
Line From a Mineral Spring.
Wai kksha, Wis., May 8. Waukesha
was patrolled by armed men last nijht
and every loyal citizen slept with a
weapon within unit's reach prepared to
sally forth at 'a moment's notice to
the defense of the city. These prepara
tions were due to an uttempt made Sat
urday night to lay a pipe lino from
tho Hygeiu spring to the city limits to
connect with a pipe line to Chicago. At
midnight a Chicago, Milwaukee & St
Paul train brought 300 laborers and a
quantity of pipe lino into town.
The pumping, of water from the Hy
go la spring was forbidden by tho city
authorities some time ago, but the pro
moters thought the work eould be dono
Is-foro tho courts could interfere. Citi
zens had received an intimation of the
proposed invasion, and when the train
pulled into the station a crowd of 2,000
armed men was on hand to receive tho
Invaders. As tho workmen, led by J.
E. MeElroy, a Chicago real estate man,
stepped from the cats a hundred shot
rang out In the air and the invaders
beat a hasty retreat to the train. Mean
time the fire bells had been rung and
the few citizens who had retired Joined
the crowd at the depot
An injunction was served on MeElroy
and he repaired to a hotel to confer with
ills attorney. The workmen had by
this time regained their courage and
again emerged fram the cars. Some of
them had been drinking and in a short
time a half dozen fights with the citi
zens had been starte'd. Five of the
aliens were arrested and hustled off to
jnil and two of them are still in custody.
.MeElroy tlnnlly marched his followers
to a deserted mill where they were in
camp all day. At 6 a. in. tho workmen
made another demonstration, but the
fire bells "were again rung, bringing
every able-bodied man In town to the
scene and again McElroy's, mon wero
forced to retire.

An Kcllank President Is Arrested for
Trying to Deceive the Comptroller of
Piin.AiiKi.rniA, May 0. Theodore
Hunter, ex-president of tho Phienix
ville National bank, was arrested at his
home in PlxenixvUle Saturday night
upon a warrant issued by United States
Commissioner Hell, charging him with
muking fnlse entries in his report to tho
comptroller of the currency. He was
brought to this city and held In 1 10,000
bail for a hearing by Commissioner
Hell to-day. The report in which the
false entries are alleged to have been
made was dated May 13, 1889. The in
formation upon which tho warrant was
issued charges Hunter with making
false entries with intent to deceive tho
comptroller of the currency and the di
rectors of the bank.
The case Is said to be similar in its
character to that of President Marsh,
of the Keystone bank. It is not known
exactly in what condition tho bank's
affairs are, as no testimony was given
before Commissioner Hell. Hunter was
unable to obtain bnllundwaslockedup.

Proceedings of the Unailrennial Confer
ence of the Church at Omaha, Neb.j
Omaha, Neb., May 4. The secqad
day's meeting of the quadrennial con
ference opened with Rishop Merrill, of
Chicago, in the chair. The galleries and
balconies were crowded with sightseers',
mostly women. Tho devotional exer
cises were conducted by Dr. J. C. Hart
zell. The selection of seats was then fin
ished and Dr. Neely, of Philadelphia,
offered a plan of organization whbh
llishop Foss presided over the deliber
ations at the afternoon session and after
the usual devotional exercises the first
real business came up for real action.
The first of this was a committee refer
ence of the question of the payment of
the expenses of a case where a delegato
did not appear until after his alternate
had been seated in his place. It was au
awkward question and finally wont to
a committee of nine.
Following this Dr. Neely, of the con
stitution committee, to which the re
vision of the constitution was referred
at the, last quadrennial conference in
18SS, appeared with o pamphlet report
of the committee, which recommended
changes and gave several interpreta
tions not heretofore thoroughly under
Col. Ray, one of tho members of the
constitution committee, had a minority
report which was also printed. The
minority report went to the extent of
recognizing women us lay delegates.
Hoth reports were ordered printed.
Various committees wero appointed,
union others one on Upworth League,
consisting of two from each conference

Omaha. Neb., May 5. llishop War
ren, of Denver, presided ut yesterday's
session of the Methodist Episcopal Con
ference. A committee on memoirs was
appointed, und on motion of Dr. Iiucklcy,
of New York, addresses were ordered
restricted to fifteen minutes for written
memiir'als and five minutes for oral.
Two hours' time was then given over to
the Episcopal address, which was deliv
ered by 1 tishop Foster. The past quad
auium, the report stated, had been a
prosperous one for the church. There
have been no deaths among the bish
ops. Fifty thousand assignments of
ministers had been made, with but little
dissatisfaction. Work in the foreign field
had been given special care and numer
ous visits by the bishops to foreign lands
had lx-en made with beneficial results.
The book concerns of the church are the
largest in the world. There have been
no dissensions in the church, and there
is more Intelligence and less bigotry in
the pulpit The membership during
the past four years has grown rapidly
nnd now numbers S.'J;t'i,014 communi
cants. Four hundred nnd forty-two
thousand souls have been added to the
church during the four years by confes
sion of faith. Churchy have Increased

Contributions to all mission
ary societies have increased' f!J34,13.j.
Higher education in ministry is
imperative, and no man should bo
allowed in chairs in our theological
schooU wIiom) loyalty to the doctrine
of our church is not steadfast The
church wants no traitors. The Ep worth
League received great praiso as a medi
ator iH-twcen tho Sunday-school and
the church. It has in three yearssprnng
up from naught to 8,000 chapters with
600,000 memlKTS. Tho national univer
sity ut Washington is announced as a
certuinty and liberal endowments asked
for, millions being necessary for its
equipment The women's college in
Italtiraore was also commended.
"The church demands an American
ized franchise as well as a naturalized
franchise," said tho bishop. "The con
tinuation or foreign languages and
customs in this country is wrong and
we are opposed to the teaching of for
eign languages in our schools. We be
lieve that the franchise should be more
Jruurdcd and foreigners bo required to
serve a longer apprenticeship to secure
it We regard the legislation in con
gress to exclude Chinese as inhuman,
and recommend that petitions to con
gress be prepared by this conference to
not pass the measure." The centraliza
tion of wealth is denounced, and, if it is
not arrested, there will be danger to
the social and state functions. Tho
church must act It cannot side with
wealth; it must go with the toiling
musses. Total abstinence is Imperative
and complete prohibition is urgent
The report declares that tho union of
the Church north and south Is drifting
closer and is not an impossibility, and
the north still holds out its hand of
Omaha, Neb., May 7. In tho Metho
dist conference Friday over an hour was
tuken up by tho reading 6f tho minutes
and itemizing the many resolutions, ap
peals and memorials presented. The
action of President Harrison in signing
tho Chinese exclusion act within a
few hours of its delivery to him was
seriously criticized by the delegates.
The committee on Chinese exclusion
split on their reports. Judge Lawrence,
of Ohio, offered the majority, which re
commended that as tho president had
good reasons for signing tho bill, the
matter be dropped. Dr. Swindcls said
that the conference must at once take
some steps to protect its missions in
China. Naught can lie done to prevent
the law, but sotnethiny must be done to
protect the Chinese In the United States
and tho American nissionaries In China
or there is liable to be lossof life. Judge
Lawrence moved that the matter be re
ferred to another committee for further
consideration. Considerable discussion
followed. Finally the matter was re
ferred to a special committee, consisting
of five ministers and four laymon.
