SOME or THE LEADERS AT THE OMAHA CONFERENCE. As Several t»f Theiu Are Old the Movement for More Hlshopa Will lie Strengthened. The Missionary Bishop*—Men of Great Vigor. Since its formal organization in the United States the Methodist Episcopal church has had forty-six bishops, includ ing the three consecrated for work in Afri ca and the one for India and Malaysia. The first was Thomas Coke in 1784, and the last for home work were John P. New man and Daniel A. Good sell, the latter be ing but fifty-one years old, and by several years the youngest of the eighteeu now living. The oldest is Thomas Bowman. A rather melancholy interest attaches to the African bishoprics, as Francis Burns, consecrated for Liberia in 1858, died in 1863, and John W. Roberts, conse crated for the same place in 1860, died in 1876. But Bishop William Taylor, consecrat ed in 1884 for the west coast of Af E^rica generally, is $ still vigorous, though reaching the age of seventy-, one on the first day of the Omaha conference. He was born in Rock- BlSHor TA TLOR. bridge, Va., united with the Methodist church in 1811, com menced preaching the next year and was received into the Baltimore conference in 1843. He was a pioneer from the first, for in 1849 he went to California and established the first -Methodist church in San Fran cisco, and his book a in a days in that city is among the most fascinating of western sketches. He then worked in Canada, Great Britain, Tasma nia, Australia and New Zealand, and made a successful is on a the Kaffirs and other natives of South Africa. From 1872 to 1876 BISHOP THOBUI'.N. he established self supporting churches in Bombay, Calcutta. Madras and sev eral other places in India, and then did an immense work in South America and various islands. May 22, 1884, he was consecrated missionary bishop in Africa, and his great work there is known to all newspaper readers. His episcopal residence is at St. Paul de Loanda, and he has estab lished thirty-six missions, extending some 300 miles along the coast and 1,200 miles up the Congo. In addition to all this he has published thirteen hooks and written a great deal on temperance and mission work. In the conference of 1888 the proposition to name a bishop for India excited a lively and rather humorous debate, Drs. Lana han and Buckley opposing the motion on the ground that there was no pro vision for such an office and that it practically created a diocesan bishop, which was "not Methodism." Nev ertheless,the prop osition was adopt ed by 282 to 151, and on the first ballot Dr. James Mills Thoburn re ceived 286 of the BISHOP FOSTEK. 410 votes cast. Dr. J. M. Buckley received 21, which the con ference took in the light of a good natured joke. The new bishop was born March 7, 1836, in Clairsville, O., entered the minis try at twenty-one and two years later was sent as a missionary to India. He has re mained there most of the time since, and was a heroic coadjutor of Bishop Taylor while the latter was in that country. As the question of more bishops is a "burning" one in the conference, the mat ter of age is im portant. Next to the senior bishop in that line comes Bishop Randolph S. Foster, whose episcopal re 31 dence is in Bos ton. He was born at Williamsburg. O., Feb. 22, 1820, and entered the ministry a few weeks before com pleting his eight eenth year. He has therefore been fifty-four years in BISHOP ANDKEWS. the work, and bids fair toreacn the years of John Wesley. In 181'.) he published a reply to the Presbyterian, Dr. Rice, which had a great run. In 1856 he was made president of the Northwestern university, a few years later became president of Drew Theological seminary and in 1872 was con secrated bishop. Since his election he ha« visited and assisted the conferences in Europe and South America. Bishop Edward Gayer Andrews is five years younger, having been born in 1825 in Oneida county, N. Y. He oecame a Methodist at the age of ten. was graduated from Wesleyan univer sity on hia twen ty-second birth day and entered the Oneida con ference the next year, but was li censed to preach at nineteen. After preaching and teaching for many years he was con BISHOP VINCENT. secrated bishop in 1872. Seven years younger than he is Bishop John H. Vin cent, of New Jersey, who was born in Ala bama Feb. 23, 1832, and consecrated in 1888. He is therefore one of "the young toes of the church," and his great work has been in Sunday schools and the liter ature belonging thereto. Bishop Cyrus David Foss, though two years younger than Bishop Vincent, is eight years older as a bishop, having been consecrated in 1880. He was born at Kings ton, N. Y., in 1834, was graduated from the Weidevan university in 1854. and after teaching three years entered the ministry, but in 1875 was made president of his Alma Mater, holding that office till chosen bishop. His episcopal residence lain Phila delphia. Bishop John Fletcher Hurst, of Wash ington, is also counted among the young tuen, having been born Aug. 17, 1834, county, Md. He is one of the ripest scholars in Amer ica, having taught the ancient lan a theology at llano and lleidelbe Germany, travti ed in all parts of Europe and in Syria and Egypt, and written with great ability on many controvert ed points of Bib- BISHOP FOSS. lical history and criticism. In 1873 he was elected president of Drew Theological semi nary, and in 1880 was consecrated bishop. His "History of Rationalism," Lectures in Defense of John's Gospel" aud other works rank high as text books among Christians of all denominations. Another "Ohio man" (that state being quite as prominent in the episcopacy as it was long reputed to be iu federal offices), and an exceedingly picturesque character in the church, is Bishop John M. Walden. Unlike most ministers he has two quite distinct biographies, and to western men his career as politician and newspaper man is rather more interesting than his life as a preacher. In IS'.ti he was considered in Ohio a "cantankerous Fremont man," and in 1857 he edited a paper at Quindaro, Kan., which was, to put it mildly, "quite spicy." Very few people now remember that there ever was such a "city" iis Quindaro, but its history combines the ro mance, the trag edy and the broad burlesque of the Kausas struggle of 1855-8. he "Quindaro Chin dowan" asa news paper might be said t-o have sug gested the "Ari zona Kicker." Quindaro was the name of the 'n-^t§ dian who sold the town site to the whites and Chin dowan in the ab- BISHOP HUKST. origine tongue meant a bundle of rods— that is. the symbol of power and au thority. The city, according to its san guine projectors, was to be the great metropolis, and lots were held at prices indicative of a future Chicago. The loom collapsed and Quindaro is now an obscure country postoffice, but Editor Walden was elected to the Topeka legisla ture and in time became state superintend ent of public instruction. He was born Feb. 11, 1S31. at Lebanon, O., was graduated from Farmers' col lege. Ohio, iu 1852 taught school awhile and then became a writer for the Cincinnati Commercial and a rather active young politician, after which he went to Kansas. In 1S58 he was :ul mitted to the Cin in at ence, and after re turning to Ohio BISHOP WALDEN. as a permanent home was put in charge of a department of the Book Concern, which he held for many years. He was alsoactivein all edu cational and temperance work. He was consecrated bishop in 1884, and his episco pal residence is at Cincinnati. In the election of bishops in the confer ence of 1888 the contest over two excited particular attention. Dr. J. P, Newman was chosen on the fifteenth ballot in his case and Rev. Isaac W. Joyce on the fifth. The for mer is well and widely known in consequence of his position at Wash ington city for so many years. The reputation of the latter was rather local, as that of an eloquent preacher at Cincinnati. He was born Oct. 11, 1836, iu Hamilton BISHOP JOYCE, county, O.. but was reared and educated in Indiana, and was admitted to the North west conference of that state in 185£». For four years he was presiding elder of the Lafayette district, but in 1880 located in Cincinnati, where he remained pastor of St. Paul's till his election as bishop. He adds another brilliant proof to the truth that the "Ohio man" continues to get there in church as well as in state. J. II. BEADLE. Durability of Ancient Ink. The labor required in making the man uscript books of ancient days was far beyond the understanding of the men of the present «ay who possess all the modern adjuncts to that art. As these books were intended to last for many years, answering the same purpose as our printed tomes, the great desideratum in their preparation was durability. As a natural consequence, those who made them not only selected the best quality of parchment or other material to write upon, but also paid particular attention to the quality of the ink used in such work. That they were successful in mnlring the latter is evidenced by the fact that in the majority of instances the char acters inscribed on the most ancient manuscript rolls now preserved in the Britisin museum and elsewhere are very legible, the ink being bright and black and showing but little evidence of it9 great age. It is supposed that the su perior quality of lampblack, prepared in a manner now unknown, was the true cause of this beautiful and lasting color of the ink iu question.—Detroit fc'ren Press. In the city of New York during the year 1891 the unknown dead removed to the morgue numbered 201 males, 180: females, 81. Of the total 92 were iden tified subsequently. A POLITICAL WARHOR3E. He Also a I'linsllilo Dctiiiinmtlc Noini for the I'rcitlilt'iicy. Among the possible nominees of the Democratic party for the presidency of the United States is ex-Governor Gray, of Indiana. He lias had an active career, and is a self :de man. ISAAC PUSEY OKAY. Isaac Pusey Gray was born in Chester county, Pa., in 1833. His parents were Quakers. In 1841 they removed to Ur bana, O., where Isaac attended the com mon schools, spending his spare time at home in acquiring a fund of general in formation and in reading law. He mar ried at about the time that his major ity was attained, and in 1855 went to Union City, Ind. He has since then been a resident of Indiana. Up to 1856 he was a Whig, but he then became a Republican. He enlisted in the Union army in 1862, and served as colonel in the Fourth Indiana cavalry. Ill health compelled him to return home, but later ou ho recruited the One Hundred and Forty-seventh Indiana infantry. Mr. Gray took his first flyer into poli tics in 1866, when he was nominated for congress against Hon George W. Julian. Gray had then ceased to act with the Republicans. He made an active cam paign and came within 300 votes of elec tion. In 1888 he was elected to the state senate and served until 1872. Four years later he was nominated by ac clamation for lieutenant governor on the ticket with "Blue Jeans" Williams. President Harrison, then an Indianapolis lawyer, was the opposing candidate and the campaign was probably the most ex citing ever held iu Indiana. Victory perched upon the banner of Williams and Gray, and the former dying just before the close of his term the latter succeeded him as governor. In 1S80 lie was nominated for govern or, but although he ran ahead of his ticket it was the disastrous Hancock year, and he was defeated. Four years later the Democrats again honored Governor Gray in a similar manner, and this time he was successful, running ahead of the Cleveland and Hendricks electoral ticket by more than 1,000 vote3. He retired from the gubernatorial office in 1S88 and has since lived in Indianapolis, where he enjoys a lucrative law practice. He has an interesting family. Carioun isvonte mi a Burued Plnafor* A bnrne$ pinafore has been the caus of M, curious debate. A girl belonging r.o t:ie Cuckoo Lane schools, at Han well belonging to the city of London and Si. Savour's union, dropped the chalice at a communion service and stained the pina fore. Thereupon the high chaplain or dered the pinafore not to be washed, but to be destroyed. As it belonged to the ratepayers the managers inquired his authority for destroying their property. The chaplain pleaded the precedent that old Bibles are destroyed in the same way, but offered to buy anew pinafore. The managers however are determined not to let the matter rest, and two com mittees are to investigate the practices of Ritualistic chaplains in regard to damaged pinafores and Bibles.—London Tit-Bits. A Co-operative Coot Factory. A striking proof of the steady progress of the principle of co-operative produc tion was given Friday at Leicester, where over 500 delegates from all parts of the kingdom assembled to assist at the formal opening of the largest co-op crative boot and shoe factory in the world. The factory stands on six acres of ground. The buildings cost $150,000, and when fitted with machinery the to tal outlay will have been $250,000. The working capital will be $1,000,000, and the factory will be able to turn out 50, 000 pairs of boots every week. This huge enterprise has been and will continue to be managed by worlcin^men, and the men who make the boots will share in the profits earned by their labor.—Lon don Cor. New York Times.
