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. E. E. SAUNDERS.

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
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
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

now in Washington, immediate steps
will be taken to correct the abuse.
Tearing Down the Planters' Horn.
ST. LOUIS, May 11.—The work of de
molishing the old Planters' House, the
historic old pile known the world over,

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

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.

city has determined to apply to the
legislature for the passage of a pension
law that will give all Confederate vet

"Some time ago Mr. A. came to mj
place and bought a pair of diamond ear
drops for his daughter, a girl of seven
teen or eighteen, who was attending
school. 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
"The lapidary said: 'Oh, that's a jot
that came in this morning from Funken

diamonds taken out and paste put in
'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
