Tbe vote of tbe North Dakota Conference, which has just been received, was tbe last to be taken en the proposition With that vote luolnded in 'he table the vote Is Bbowu to be 7 515 for the admission of women and 2,520 against. According to a pro vision of tbe discipline, It is necessary for a proposition to obange auy of tbe re strictive rulrs of tbe oburoh to rsoelve tbe support of three fourths of the mem bers of the annual conferences voting on tbe propost Ion, and two thirds of tbe members of tbe General Conference. As tbe total vote was 10.044 it wonld have been necessary for the snpoorters of tbe amendment to have east 7 031 bat lots to wlo. They lost by 18 votes. A complication of tbe question will be oansed by the presence of three women at tbe next Methodist Episcopal General Conference, who heve been elected as lay delegates, aud who will apply for admis sion to tbe oonferanoe. One of these la the wife of President Basbfurd, of the Ohio Wesleyan University, at Delaware, Ohio. Tbe women may be admitted on a simple mtjorlty vote, It la said, and If this' la done it will settle tbe whole ques tion In tbelr favor.
