The refreshments were of a most elegant description, the tables were ornamented with flowers and soiilax, and the card tables the scene of constant excitement and hilarity. Mrs. E. J. Schwellenbach and Mr. O. L. Churchill were awarded the booby prizes, Miss Lillie McGinnis and Dr. DePuy the tokens of btst play ers. The affair was one of the most elaborate and successful of any^social event given in the city for along time. Mr. Saunders' Statement. Editor Alert:—I have read the com munication of Mr. M. D. Williams in Tuesday's Alert. I am unable to find the postal card referred to. It is unim portant anyway, as I hail been instruct ed by the last convention of our party to call a convention, not later than March 20tb, for the purposes mentioned in the call. Perhaps if I had called the com mittee, a minority might have responded, as was the case with Mr. Williams' com mittee, and I thoulrJ net have felt like "proceeding to business," as did Mr. Williams when he issued an address to •oters, utterly ignoring prohibition the main issue of.the last campaign, without consulting the other members of the committee. I presented my statement of cash received and disbursed at that time because I did not expect another opportunity to see even a minority of the members of the oampaign committee of 1890 together again. I have neither time nor money to spare to take a trip to Grand Forks every few weeks to meet with committees, when the same and even better results can be accomplished by a single convention. I have no means of knowing how many of the gentlemen, other than those men tioned as being members of the farmers alliance, were members of that organiza tion. They all declared themselves as "prohibitionists" and said nothing about their membership in the farmers alliance in the "declaration of principles" signed by them. I have no reason to suspect that any, except the would-be "leaders," are now untrue to the prohibition cause. As to the committee of the last cam paign being a "campaign committee" and not a "state central committee" I will say if any person doubts my word, I will refer them to the published report of the convention which appointed said committee, of which Mr. Williams was chairman.

Is Extended by the Methodist Con ference to Their Southern Brethren. A Prospect That the Two Divisions In America May Be Again United. The Report of the Committee on Con •titutlon Brings About Lively Debate. OMAHA, May 11.—It is quite probable that before this conference adjourns the Methodist church will, in the words of the stump speaker, know no north and no south, Au effort to bring the church North and South together is being made and communications have already been opened with the officers of the Church South by the committee on the state of the church, to whom the following resolutions offered by Dr. King of New York were read: Resolved, That the members of the gen eral conference of the Methodist Episcopal church rejoice greatly at the fidelity and prosperity of the great Methodist Episco pal Church South whose membership has advanced from 4,000 to 1^0,000 in the last twenty-six years. That we sympathize heartily with the desire for reunion so eloquently expressed by our beloved Bishop Foster, and we de voutly pray for its speedy consummation. That the general conference is hereby requested to take such action as it deems best to secure the organic union of the Methodist Episcopal Church South and other Methodist churches. This was referred without discussion, the feelings of the conference being well known. The North will again extend the olive branch of peace to the South, and many have great hopes that this will at last be crowned with good re sults. The special order of the day, tho re port of the constitutional committee, was called up at 10 o'clock. Immedi ately there was confusion. Dr. Buckley asked the conference to allow Bishop Merrill to speak on the question (a mat ter prohibited by the rules.) Dr. Neeley opposed it and thought the conference could not afford to lay down precedent and allow the bishops to speak and thus use their influence on the floor in the interest of legislation. Dr. Myley, of New York, thought that the bishop should be allowed to speak. If such a thing is to imperil the good of the church then do away with the rule. Dr. Kynnett, of the Iowa conference, also favored the motion. Dr. Buckley again secured the floor and made an ex tended speech. CONGRESSIONAL. The Senate. WASHINGTON, May 11.—Mr. Mitchell, of Oregon, presented a resolution in structing the committee on quadro centennial to inquire into the desirabil ity of making an appropriation to enable the National Guard of the various states to hold an encampment at the world's fair. Referred. A bill taken up from the calendar to establish the boundaries of Yellowstone park, drew from Mr. Vest some strong remarks in regard to an unscrupulous lobby which he said was maintained in Washington for the purpose of obtain ing a railroad charter through th$ Yel lowstone park and selling it to the Northern Pacific. He openly asserted that this lobvyinsome mysterious man ner controlled the action of the house, and would not allow this or any other bill to pass till the railroad charter got through. The Hans*. WASHINGTON, May 11.—The house passed a number of resolutions to print various government reports. Mr. Richardson of Tennessee, said it would never be possible to secure any economy in public printing unless cer tain restrictions were made. The de partments were allowed to much li cense. The house then went into committee of the whole on the sundry civil appro priation bill (Lester, of Georgia, in the chair.) It was agreed that five hours be given for general debate. The pres ent bill appropriates $23,107,787, the bill of last year being |3»,3«rj,363. The debate was opened by Mr. Cogswell, of Massachusetts. Objasct to the Bill of Fare* DETROIT, May 11.— Thirty-five nurses in the training school of Grace hospital, an institution founded and supported by United States Senator McMillan, are in open revolt against the quality and quantity of the food furnished them by the hospital managers.

LOUIS, May 11.—The work of de molishing the old Planters' House, the historic old pile known the world over, has begun. The house was first estab lished April 1, 1841.

In a year or two a new structure will adorn the present site. Child* at lleafar. DENVER, May 11.-Mr. George W. Childs and party arrived in this city at 6:15 p. m.

NEW YORK, May 11.—A special dis patch to Tne Herald from Caracas, Venezuela, says advices have been re ceived there that an engagement has been fought a few miles south of Los Teqnes, between 400 government troops and H50 insurgents. The government troops were escorting a party of en gineers. It was the purpose of the in surgents to drive Palacio's troops back into Los Teques, but after fighting all day Saturday, the latter still held their ground. The insurgents left nearly one-third dead and dying on the field when they finally retreated. The gov ernment troops sustained a loss of only twenty-five killed and thirteen wounded. Tho government troops in this fight were under command of an American who was sent away from West Point before his term of study was completed for acts of insubordina tion. He afterward appeared in South America as a civil engineer, and ac cepted a place in the dictator's army on account of the pay and promises of po litical advancement at the close of the Nut Knsitjr Kemodlrd. ROME, May 11.—It is believed that the ministerial crisis will be of long du ration as it does not appear possible to form a cabinet which, with the present temper of the chamber, would stand a fair chance of commanding a majority. The fact is that the chamber is hope lessly divided among cliques mid fac tions. There is a lack of decision as to what is the best means of delivering the country from its disaster. Will Let Women Vote. NEW YORK, May 11.—A telegram re ceived in this city from Ottawa, Can., says: "Eighteen thousand women have memorielized the dominion par liament to be enabled to vote for mem bers of that body.

May 11.—A meeting of Confederate veterans held in this city has determined to apply to the legislature for the passage of a pension law that will give all Confederate vet erans crippled, disabled or otherwise incapable of supporting themselves a pension of from $6 to $13 a month.

Ber teacher was struck with the gems and asked leave to borrow them and take them home. This per mission was readily given. A few days later 1 went into a lapidary's shop thai 1 was in the habit of visiting to get jobs done once in a while, and there 1 saw a pair of earrings beside the cutting wheel. 'Hello,: said 1, 'where did these come from?' "The lapidary said: 'Oh, that's a jot that came in this morning from Funken stein, down the street. He wants th« diamonds taken out and paste put in their place. 'Well,' said I, 'you'd better save youi labor. Don't do any work on those until you hear from me.' I went to Mr. A. brought him to see the earrings, then we went to Fnnkenstein's together and asked how he came by them—for they were the pair that 1 had sold a few days before. He said that they had been brought tc tiim by Mrs. a school teacher, whe tiad concluded to sell the stones and re place them with imitations. We decided to spare the woman, and of course the diamonds were returned, but 1 nevei learned how Fnnkenstein squared ac counts with her. "—Brooklyn Eagle. '•'ne Nutmeg Tree. The nutmeg is the kernel of the fruit of severel species of trees growing wild in Asia, Africa and America. The cul tivated nutmeg tree is from fifty to seventy-five feet hi?*h and produces fruit for sixty years. The fruit is of the size and appearance of a roundish pear, yel low in color. The fleshy part of the fruit is rather hard and resembles can died citron. Within is the nut, enveloped in tlie curious yellowish red aril known to us as mace. Up to 1796 the Dutch, being in nessession of the islands producing the only valuable variety of the nutmeg, jealously tried t«. prevent the carrying of the tree or a living seed *f it into any territory iinterifndonf of Dutch rula There is one remedy which every family should keep on hand. Mr. John Carpen ter of Goodland, Indiana, says of it: "I tried Chamberlain's Colis, Cholera and Diarrhoea remedy, for diarrhoea and severe cramps, and pains in the stomach and bowels, with the best reeulte. In the worst oases I never had to give more than the third dose to effect a cure. In most oases one dose will do. Besides its other good qualities, it is pleasant to take." 25 ana 50 cent bottles for sale by City drug store. INVALIDS Gain rapidly ia health and strength by the use of Ayer's Sarsaparilla.
