CONFERENCE CHANGES
Rev. Jewell Will Have to
Come Back to Frederica.
REV. B.F. PRICE GOES TO STOCKTON
Conference Proposed Hut the Lidpslc
People Disposed and Mr, Kfite Had
to He Charged—The Transfer Con
fusion Which Ilesultad In the Recall
of Rev. Isaac Jewell,
It would stem that all conference work
did not end with the last sessiou recently
held at Halisbury. It was thought that
everything had been settled satisfac
torily, but it now appears that such was
not the case. The question now exer
cising the minds of bishop, presiding
elders, pastors and people is that of the
revoked transfers.
At the last conference Rev Isaac
Jewell was transferred to the Vermont
Conference, and Rev. T. E. Dlverty, of
that conference, was sent to this as a
fair exchange. Rev. Diverty had ex
pected to go to Epwortb, but the people
of that church had already invited Rev.
I,. W. Layfield to become their pastor.
When Mr. Diverty learned that he was
to go to Frederica, he rebelled against
the decree, aud to Buch effect that his
transfer to the Wilmingtou Conference
was revoked by Bishop Vincent, and Mr.
Jewell was returned to this conference.
An Evening Journal reporter called
on Presiding Elder Barrett this morn
ing He said that the transfers were
revoked simply because Mr. Diverty did
not want to go so far down the state.
It was his wish to come to Wilmington.
Mr. Barrett doesn't know, either, how
Mr. Jewell takes the news of the change,
and of his appointment to Frederica
Methodist ministers bave a hard time,
aud have' to go where they are aent, and
it is likely that Mr Jewell will go to
Frederica some time during the week In
fact, there is no other place for Mr.
Jewell in the Conference.
Mr. Jewell was not in the city to day.
He was lu New York yesterday. It is
supposed that he beard rumors of the
change, aud went to see Bishop Vincent,
who is presiding at the New York Con
ference, abnut it.
HR. PRICE GOES TO STOCKTON, HD.
The I'loneer Preacher at Last Sail, on
Peaceful Waters—Hut What I. to Be
come of John Prcttjman, Who Was Sent
to Stockton Hr Conference?
Rev. B F. Price, the Methodist
preacher who recently passed through
the unpleasant ordeal at Leipslc, was
in this city yesterday. Mr. Price's re
ception by the people at that place has
been generally misunderstood. They
had disposed of the parsonage, sold the
furniture, and made arrangements for
the hoard of a single man. But they
proposed, and conference disposed, and
when Mr. Pries and his family
arrived at Leipslc, no arrangements had
been made for the disposal of them. It
was an all around embarrassing position,
the outcome of which is that the Leipsic
people got their siugle man in the person
of Rev. Wright and Mr. Price will go to
Stockton, Md.
The question now arises as to what Is
to become of John Prettyman,
who was appointed to the Stockton M.
E. Church. He Is the ex-keeper of the
bonded warehouse at Georgetown, and
has an interest In a marble yaidatthat
place, and the news of his appointment
to a charge occasioned a ripple of sur
prise. It was known that be was an
earnest church worker and Sunday
school teacher, but not that he aspired
to the Methodist itinerancy.
SUNDAY SCHOOL OFFICIALS MEET
To Make Preparation» for a Grand Rally
and Parade This Summer.
Twenty Sunday schools were repre
sented last night at the meeting held in
St. Paul's M E. Church, to make ar
rangements to hold a Snnday school
parade. Joseph Pyle was made chair
man and C. B. Cantwell, secretary. The
following resolutions were passed:
"Whereas. The evangelical Sunday
schools of the city of Wilmingtou aud
vicinity on July 3, 1893, by public parade
aud picnic did much good by briugiug
the workers together into a closer fel
lowship with each other as well r.s the
fraternizing of the yonng into a social
means of grace, and
"Whereas, Theafmblic was in a great
measure ignorant of the great power
centered in the Sunday schools for teach
ing the rising generation the pure word
of God aud in the moral training of the
youth of both sexes, aud
"Whereas, We believe that the above
demonstration did much good by the eu
couragement of the teachers of our
schools, by the display of numbers and
also to the benefit of our schools by a
day of enjoyment in the woods, aud,
"Whereas, We, the superintendents
now assembled, believe that another
demonstration this summer would be
signally beneficial to the Sunday schools
of the qity ; therefore
"Resolved, That we recommend to our
respective Sunday schools the appoint
ment of a committee of three, including
the pastor aud superintendent,to meet in
St. Paul's M. E. Church on tbeevening
of the 12th Instant with full power to
make all arrangements for such a dem

to inquire into the feasibility of remov
ing some of the hospital patients to the
almshouse, reported. Mr. Hopkins said the
trustees of Kent county had refused to
accept any patients from the hospital.
Dr. Waples, of Sussex, said that It
would accept its proportion of the
patleuts, if New Castle and Kent would
do t he same.

CHEAPER BEER AND ICE
That is What the Retail
Liquor Dealers Want.
*
MEETING 15 TAME ENGINE H0U8B
Wilmington Prices Should Correspond
With Those of Philadelphie- Big Con
sumption of Ioe— K. B. Cochran, Jr,
Klected Attorney.
The Lioensed Liquor Dealers' Protec
tive Association met in Fame engine
house yesterday afternoon. The meeting
was largely attended and of more general
interest than any of its kind held in re
cent years.
E. R Coohran, Jr, was eleoted attor
ney In lieu of Walter H. Hayes aDd Heury
C Turner, the former of whom had baen
attorney for six years and the latter for
two years. There is no stated salary, it
being regulated by the number of appli
cants for license.
The most important matter of the
meeting was the dlsonsslon of the beer
and ice supply. There was manifested
a general sentiment that the Wilmington
wholesale dealers aud Ice men muet re
duce their prices or the retailers would
have to buy elsewhere.
It was stated that, In Philadelphia,
beer is selllug at from $5 to $7 a barrel,
aocording to the brewery. Good beer
can be bought there for $6 a barrel.
Here It Is $8, with a rebate bringing it
down to $7, which is at least $1 too
much.
In Philadelphia natural ice is selling
at forty cents per one hundred
and artificial ice at ten cents,
uniform price of thirty-five oents per
huudred exists, with a rebate of
cents per hundred, on sales of 1,000
pounds and over. The retailers say
there should be a uniform rate of
twenty five cents per hundred There
are 250 liquor dealers in the
city. In warm weather the average
daily consumption per dealer la from 150
to 200 pounds. In cool weather the
average Is 100 pouuds to each dealer.
This meanH 50,000 pounds of Ice a day In
summer and|25,000pounds a day In winter.
If all the retail dealers combine against
the ice combine here, and the ice men
refused to accede to their demands,
they will probably go to Philadelphia
for their supply.
At the conclusion of the discussion
tbo matter was left In the hands of a
special committee.
