The new owners offers : to sell their stock to the Conference at what it cost. On thls point the commit? tee made no r'Commendatlon. The First Division. Tho flrst dlscusslon and division of the Conference arose over the dlspositlon of I the report, Tha Bishop Incllned to tho view that the r-port should go to the : Committee on Publishing Interests. Rev. Dr. Lipscomb, n mombcr of tho ' speclal committee, took Issuo wlth this vlew, contendlng that thls was tho re? port (of a duly constitut"d speclal com? mittee and was not propcrly referablo to the Committee on Publishing Inter? ests, Dr. Whltehead thotight the report ought to go to the Committee on Publishing In? terests. Rev. J. H. Amlss brought tho questlon to an Issue by movlng Its referonce to tho standing committee. Tho questlon was put vlva voce, but the nhalr was unnble to declde and a division was had, with the result that tho o'p ponents of reforence provalled and tho report was thus before the Conference for Its actlon. The chlof recommendatlon of the re port was that the Conferenco should ap polnt an advlsory eorrimlttoo of throe? two mlnlsters nnd ono layman?to con fer wlth tho pllbllsh'urs wlth rofcrence to tho conduct of tho pnper. Rov. Mr. AmlBB prnpoaed that tho re j.ort ho taken up hy sectlnns nnd thiis nctod upon. Ho crltlclsed the vaguoness of the languagc and nskcd to know what the word "confer" nieant. He spoke nt somo length In oppo.sll.ion to the report of tho special committee In Its present form. Rov. Dr. W. E. Judklns attacked tho recommendatlon ns to an advlsory com? mitteo, contendlng thnt the Conference had no right to dlctate tho pollcy of the Advocate, whlch was pcrsonal property I of tho owners. It would be an assump tlon to attempt to control tho pollcy or utterances of tho paper. Rev. T. J. Wray spoke vlgorously nlong the same line, contendlng that tho Con? ference had nelther lognl nor moral right to dlctate tbe pollcy or control Its actlou further than it might do by wlthdrawing or oxtendlng Its cndorsemctlt ond'patron age. Tho speaker was opposcd to the Conferonce ownlng Ils cfrgan and odvo oated the contlnuanco of the old pollcy of havlng the paper run by its owners and publlshers. Rev. J. WIloy Bledsoe and Rov. B. F. LIpscomb, of the committee. ppoko .vlg? orously ln advocacy of the advlsory com? mittee. recommcndlng, contendlng that there was nothlng unusual ln tho propo? sltlon. lf the paper dld not commend Itsolf to the Conference, the body could communlcate wlth tho publlshers through Its advlsory committee at apy tlme. They emphaslzod the fact that the committeo was to be mercly advlsory and not man agerial. The Owner's Statement. Tho conference soemed to bo driftlng unerrlngly toward a rock upon whlch tho body has dlvided several tlmes ln former years, but at thls polnt. Rov. James Can non, Jr., one of the owners, aToao and made a clear statempnt that steercd ctear of the rocks. "Ho mado lt clear that he and his assodato came before the body wlth an alternatlvc proposltlon; that the conferonce buy tho control of tho paper at what lt cost tho owners; or that the body let the owners conduct the paper and glve lt offlclaJ endorst;nient so long as tho conference saw flt. Speaklng for Uio owners, Mr. Ca nnon assured the con? ference that tho owners of Che Advocate had no objecMon to the Advlsory Cornmtt- j tea. He frankly stated that lt was: the ? deslre of the owners to so conduct the, paper as to command ?hc approval of tho' conference, but that if the Advlsory Com-I mittce mado a recommendatlon the own? ers could not accept, It would be so re ported to the conforehco. ] Rev. W. A. Chrlstian offered an amend- I ment perfocllng the phraseology of the! committeo recommendaUon, slmply pro-; vlding that the Advlsory Committee cease j Its functlons whenever the Conference J may wlthdraw Its patronage. Thls l amendment was suggested. j Rev. W. V. Tudor, D. D., objected to j the recommendaUon, which he regnrded ae premature, and llable to confllct wlth the report of the Committee on PuMsh- I Ing Intorests. He contended that li.is! standlng committee should be officiallyj Informed of tho actton of ;the Exeeutlvo Committee. ' Dr. Tudor's contentlon dld not find fa? vor wlth the conference. Rev. R. T. Wilson moved the adopfclon of the report of the spoclal committee, as amended. The moUon prevalled, wlth tho rcsult that the Advocato was en dorsed as tho conference organ, and that an advlsory' committee of tnree be nanied as provided. to confer wlth the publish ors. The Committee on Publlshlng In terests will nominate tlie committce. Conference Bequests. Rev. Dr. LIpscomb Offlcially Jnformed tho conference of (tho decisdon of the court [ ot Lynchburg by, which the conferenco ls I bequeathed the sum of $2,000 for missions i ?$1,000 for foreign and J1.000 for domos tlc. Che same havlng been bequeathed Ui tho wlll of George M. Jones. Tho mat? ter was referred to the Board of MIs-1 slons for declslon as to the appllcatlon of the fund. I The Conferenco then got down to work I wlth the detalls, and tho character of many mlnlsters was pnssed. Blshop Wll son. In order to expedlte matter, dls pensed with the usual detail of reports from the preachers. Their names wero called and reports wore mado by tho svv eral presldlng elders. As a result of thls expedlljous measure the entlre llst of the mlnlsters In full conventlon was call? ed and the characters aud offlclaladmln. Istratlons of all were approved.. '. When Rev. B. F. LIpscomb, D. D., pre? sldlng elder of the Petersburg Dlatrlct, had testllled to tho charactors of all tho other mlnlsters under hls jurlsdlctlon, he called the name of Herbert M. I-Iopo. In stantly the buzz of conversatlon ceased and a tense sllence and attltudo of ex pectoncy followed, "I havo had two con ferencos wlth hlm, one in Octoher and tho other November tith," sald Dr. LIps? comb, whlch I wlll dollver to tho secretary to be r.-ad to tho Conference. The flrst letter from atr. Hope an nounced his Intentlon to wlthdraw from tho Conferenco nnd to aurrender hls crcdentlnls ns an elder. but nnnotinccd that he hnd been unablo to flnd hls dca con's crcdcntlals, but that ln ttirnlng ln ono, ho surrendcred both. Dr. Lipscomh then propounded thls qucstion to whlch hc deslred an answet by tho presldlng blshop: "If a man sur rondor hls or'dentlnls as a mlnlster what Ik his status with regard to church mem bcrshlp?" The Blshop replled that sur rendcr of mlnlstorlal credontlnls dld not operato as a surrender of church m'lti bershlp, unless expressly statetl or osk ed. Dr. Llpscomb then nsked , of whnt church was Mr. Hope a membcr. No one secmed to know. but Blshop Wilson stated that ho was a member of the church and of tho quartely conference to whlch ho was last nccredlted. The tall form of Dr. John Hannon arose near the pnlplt and In exploslve tones, he sald: "I move that tho Confercnce nc cept Brother Hopo's credentlals wlth ro ftiot." "A motlon is not necessary," sald Blsh? op Wilson. "Tho surrender of credentlals spcaks for Itself." Throw Him a Kiss. "I roade the motlon that we might throw hlm a kiss In partlng," snid Dr. Hannon. The motlon was then put and adopted wlth ono dissentlng volce. Thls actlon severs tho connoctlan of Mr. Hope wlth the Conference. Tho dramatlc moment had passeS wlthout tenslon. The llst of pasbprs was called to tho end and tho character was passed. Tho caso of Rev. R. B. Beadles, of Asbury, Manchester, was refprred to the Com? mittee on Conference Relatlons. He wlll ask for a superannuate relatlon, owing to hls own ago and hl3 wife's feeblo hc-alth.. Tho case of Rev. R. B. Bentley was re forred to the eame committee. He has tubcrculosis and wlll retire from actlvo work. Rev. R. W. Watts's case was re j ferred to tho aame committee. When the passage of characters was completed, RIsHop Wilson arose and ralsed | the doxology, and the sesslon ended for the day. ! Conference Notes. I Bishop "Wilson rather peremptorlly or: dcrcd n number of young preachers who were blocklne the aisle to clear, lt and j let others pass. The response was a scamper to cover, aiid the congestlon was *_on rclievod. Several tlmes durlng the day's session tho blshop had to inslst upon a cessatlon of the buzz and hum of conversatlon. The presldlng elders, offlclals and reporters were about all who could hear durlng tho transactlon of rou tlne work. The church was crowded, the gallcrles belng flllcd wlth ladles, many of whom kept up a> lively conversatlon. Frequently the gavel was resorted to dur inc the passage of the character of mln? isters. Rev. J. Powell Garland, D. D? who was detalnod from yesterday's sesslon by roa son of illness, -was well enough to 'be present to-day, and was warmly greeted by hls brefhrep.

DALZELL MORE LIKELY President Anxious to Build tlf Republican Party in tlie South. (From Otrr Regular Correspondent.) WASHINOTON, D. C, November 17 Thore ils greater llkellhood of the appolnt tnent of Judge Lunsford L. Lewls, o: Rlchmond, to a placo In tho Cablnci than thero Is of tho appolntment of Colo? nel Campboll Slcmp. Whllo there I* noth? lng deflnlte upon whlch to baso an as sertlon regardlng the chances of tho ap? polntment of Judge Lcwls, there ls a cur ront bellcf that ln vlew or tho break lr tho solhl South, the President deslres tc ishow hls frlendllness toward tha.t section, nnd nt the samo tlme encouroge the up bullding of a Sputhcrn Republican party, by glvlng a Cabinet pJacc to a man from the South. Tlierc Is a rutnor currcnt that tho name of Judge Lervvl?, has been con? sidered In connection wlth tho a.ttorocy gcnoralshlp, wblch will soon bc made va cant by the reslgnatlon of Mr. Moody. Judgo Lewls Is ono of the hlghest inen ln Vlrginla, and one of tho most popu? lar. When ho was aippolnted to hls pres ent posltlon of Unlted States Dlstrlct At? torney. lt was commented upon at the tlmo that he recclved as hcarty congratu latlons from Democrats gcnerally as If ho had been of jthat party. Ho has sat upon the Supreme Court of Appeals bench and a, fow.years ogo was mado prosf.derit of. the Vlrginla State Bar Assocla t'lon. ? If a'man- from the South ls to be of? fered a place ln the Ca.blr.et, however, lt ls thought that he ?will be from one of the Startes whlch offers better ohonces of golng Republican in ^ho future. It, is esald that tho Republlcans have been leu to thlnk that there Is Olne prospect ol carrytng Virginia in the not remote fu ttlre, and that 'they hope to see several lnstead of only ono Republican ln Con? gress from the Old Domlnlon at an early day. But when they go to analyze the re turns ? of the electlon last week they see that tho hopo is not well founded. Thero are other States south of tho Potomac whlch' .offor. greater lnducoments to tho Republlcans than are offered In Vlrginla. Of coiirse, Virginia people without, ref enco to party, would be glad to see a Vlrgln<an ln the'Cabinet, but there is llt? tle reason 'to thlnk 'they wUl havo the pteasuro of doing so for some years lo come. . Dalzell Also Mentioned. In connection with the post of Attor noy-General, the narno r>f Represemtative John Dalzell, of Pennsylvanla, ls also mentioned.' Attorney-General Moody wlll reslgn sb6n,'as he wishes to engage ln tho pracWco of the law In Boston. It was apparently settled, it ls stated, that Sena tor John C. Spooner, of Wlsconsln, was to succcod hlm, OW'.ng to thc'overwhelm lng defeat of Mr. Spooner's - facUon by Lafollotte at the .Jast electlon, and Uio certalnty of tho electlon to the Scnate of a Lafolletto man, as Senator Spooner's colleague, lt was belleved that bo would be glad to enter the Cabinet and escape the ombarrassments Incldent to further partloipaition ln the poUUcs of his State. He is regarded as ono of tho ablest con stltut/.onal lawyers ln the country. '. But Mr. Dalzell ls-now sald to be ten tatlvely-slated for the place,' and there is a story behlnd hls prospecUve or pos siblo appolntmont. The President and some of the most promlnent leadcrs of the Republican party are understood to favor tho calling of an extra session of Congress for the purpose of consldcrlng the rovlslon of tarlff schedules. Many Re publ'cans admlt that duties In somo in stancea aro too hlgh, and it ls even sald that Speaker Cannon. porhaps. the orlgl nator or tho expreasion, "stand our,-' as used in tho rccent campalgn to deslg nato those Republlcans who were opposed to any chango ln tarlff schedules, ls not now very strongly opposed to an extra sessiori' for the purpose of overhauling and rovislng Uie tarlff laws. But Mr. Dalzell, who ha,s for yoars been lookod on as tho very hlgh priost of protection, hns kept his face sot as a fllnt against any change whatover ln tarlff schedules, nnd ls .oppoFed to an ex? tra session for tho purposo of rovlslon. Ho is regarded as tho special representa tlvo of the Iro'n and steol Interests of tiio rountry, whicli reap greater beneflts from the protectlvo tnrfff system than do any sther class, It Is sald that thero is a probablllty that he wlll bo appolnted to :he attorney genexalshlp ln order that ho nay be tnken out of Congress, whore hls >pposltion to an extra session would ho iffectlve, and posslbly succcssfult Tt is laild that ho has been approaohed wlth a .?low to learnlng whether he would accept he attorney general'sj pol'tfollo lf offered t, and that lt wafe maide pln.ln jto hlni hat he could nover hope to he mado speaker of tho House of Re^iresontatives, iwlng to hls unpopularity with the mem kvs of hls pnrty, and that he could ?ound out hls coreer honorably wlth orm of four years as the head of tho bar if Amerlca.
