Is understood that he has ao teIY
of reappoiating Dr. Whitfoed, the
present lnoumbent, and It is thout
that the appolntment lies between Dr.
MoCrimmon and Dr. Guan.
Thefire committee will meet In a
few days to discuss the merits of the
dilerent candidates for ohienf sad
tatn of the department and. mae
seleettos. The lare inmuranoe agents
are fighting 1ae reappohtmetn of Chief
Werner, but deny that they are work
Ina in the interests of any candidate.
The Indications are that Werser'
chances have been greatly improved by
the comparative statement or Are loases
for the last Sour years, whie was con
mined in his annual report. Captain
Stopper of the Spokane fire department
and Frank Thomas are after the ap
pcintment and both have friends
among the aldermen who are looking
after their interests. Before the fire
insurance men commeneed their fiht
on Werner, Alderman Bausman. chair
man of the fire committee, expressed
hlmelf as being of the opinion that
Werner had not had a fair show and
favored giving him another trial. It
it not known whether or not the un
de-writers' fight has cansed him to
obhane his opinion.
The police committee will also meet
In a day or two to select the men who
will comprise the polioe force during
the coming year. It is not expected
that there will be many changes In.
the force as it now s*ds. The
changes wit probably number co ede: -
ably ess thn a dosen, as there are five
old aldermen on the police committee
besides the mayor. and it s believed
that they will oppose asly great
changes, even should the appointment
of any considerable number of new
men be desired by the new aldermen,
which is very doubtful.

last evening, with an attendance of 13,

the honorary Ibt and a small amount
of minor business was transacted. It
has been apparent for some time that
the volunteer department was on its
last legs and it Is now being reeman
ised on entirely new lines. It is the
intention to introduce the beneficial
idea by providing for a sick benefit of
-5 a week and a funeral benefit of $50
for members. It is proposed to make
the initiation fee $5 or more and the
monthly dues 50 or 75 cents and the
members will receive 75 cents an hour
for attendance at fires under the city
ordinance relating to the volunteer de
partment. A committee is now at work
amending the constitution and by-laws
to conform to this plan, and they ex
pect to hand in their report at the
next regular meeting. Immediately
thereafter the undesirable element in
the volunteer department will be weed
ed out as fast as possible and an or
ganised effort will be made to increase
the membership with young men of
standing and influence. The volunteer
department now has about $00 in the
treasury, which will put the remodeled

Bishop Andrews called the general
Methodist Episcopal conference to or

of Cincinnati presented a resolution
providing for the appointment of a
special committee to pass on all com
munications from laymen. This comn.

and one layman from each district.

Rev. Dr. Shier of Detroit expressed re

The woman question was then pre
cipitated by President Daniel Steven
son of Union college, Kentucky, who
criticlied the action of the bishops In
deciding against the women in 1188.
Rev. O. "Neely led the fight against the
women. He held the question to be one
of law purely. He said it was true the
Bible said men and women are one in
Christian but not in general confer
ence. He held that in the church the
status of women is different from that

constitutional one and no one is to be
admitted unless specifically mentioned.
The delegates were thoroughly
aroused and feeling ran high. Judge

Mr. Frye then moved to take up the
rive and harbor bill and in doing so
said: "I do not mean to anpgonise
the bond bill at 2 o'clock. I regard the
vote of yesteeday as the instructions
of the senate to me not to urge the
river and harbor bill agalnast the bond
bill at 2 o'olock." WitH this explain
tln there was no opposition to pro
oeeding with the river and harbor bill.
At 2 o'clock the bill was laid aside,
bS pages having been disposed of and
the bond bill was taken up. As Mr.
Hill was about to resume his speech
Mr. Petter rose and said: "I will sak
thI senate to remain in session to
night until this resolution is passed."
Mr. Hill said he was willing to yield,
as a rule, but he did not propose to be
taken arbitrarily from the floor and he
would not yield to Mr. Pefter. Mr.
Hill proceeded, the said, to prevent the
senate fromn making itself ridiculous.
This resolution called for facts that
were already reported to the senate.
Why, therefore, should senators admit
that they were ignoramuses. To be sure,
said Mr. Hill, there is no law against
senators making fools of themselves,
but they ought not to do it needlessly
by a "foolish, contemptible" resolution.
"If you can't comprehend the reports
already made, then resign your seats,"
he said, savagely. Mr. Hill declared
that this was a move to manufacture
campaign material on the eve of a
rh.e nator vlielded lonr enough to
ramendment to the pending resolution I/ P

bond issues be conducted by the sen- if

Mr. Hill yielded the floor temporar
ily to Mr. Pettigrew for a speech on
tariff and finance. The spleech was a 12
succinct record of government trans
actions for the last five years. Mr.
Pettigrew asserted his belief that the -
recent financial scares had been pur
posely worked up by the present ad
ministration in order to force congress
to pass administration measures and
after that to compel financial trans
actions to enrich the favorites of the
president, if not the president himself."
There had been, he said, a deliberate
conspiracy on the part of the adminis
tration to break down the government's
credit. Mr. Pettigrew spoke of the
part taken by a "former law partner
of Grover Cleveland" in negotiating
the bond contract with the Morgan
syndicate. Mr. Pettigrew believed in
