Green was reported to an officer,
and yesterday afternoon called Gerhart
to his work bench in the shoe

FIXED?FIRM GROUNDS TAKEN
ON DIVORCE QUESTION, AND
IVIORMONISM DENOUNCED.
ins ANGELES. Mav 20.?The
Methodist General Conference held
two long sessions yesterday. At the
morning session editors for 10 church
publications were elected, the Ep*
worth Herald being omitted until
later. There was very little interest
in the election of editors, and the
Southwestern Christian Advocate,
published at Now Orleans, furnished
the only contest.
The balloting resulted as follows:
Methodist Review. \Y. Y. Kelly:
Christian Advocate, 3. M. Buckley,
New York; Western Christian Advocate,
Levi . Gilbert: Northwestern
Christian Advocate, D. D. Thompson:
Central Christian Advocate, 0. B.

There was a warm and prolonged
debate against fixing Philadelphia as
the place of residence of a member of
the Euisconal board, as was also the
case in regard to Cincinnati. The I ,
placed selected are: New York, Boston.
Philadelphia, Nashville, Buffalo, j
Cincinnati. Chattanooga. St. Louis,
Chicago, Minneapolis, Denver, Portland,
Oregon.; San Francisco, Zurich,
Switzerland; Buenos Ay res and
Shanghai.
Several matters of material importance
have been passed on by the
standing Committee on State of the
church and will be recommended to
conference. The question as to what
shall constitute the recognized
grounds for divorce was the cause of
a spirited contest. The committee ,
voted to make the crime of adultery
the sole legal reason for separation
recognized by the church.
The resolution on Mormonism asks
Congress to enact a constitutional
amendment that will make impossible
certain pracuees ul iviuiiwuu?oUx
any part of the United States or in
any country subject to its juristic
tion. Another resolution deplores the
reputed efforts of the Roman Catholic
church to secure a division of the pub
lie school fund along "sectarian lines
as a menace to the public school system,
and calls on Congress to provide
an amendment to the Federal Constitution
which will make impossible the
accomplishment of such an object.
A resolution regulating the membership
of the church was also adopted.
Jt provides t hat those who fail in their
duties may be dropped from the roll
of membershiiJ by the pastor (){ the
church, with the provision that on demand
they may receive a regular trial.

LAST SPIKE

DRIVEN TO-DAY.
PITTSBrRG. Pa.. May 2G.?The last
spike in the tracks of the Wabash
railroad connecting Pittsburg with
Mingo Junction. 4! miles away, whs
driven in shortly before noon to-day.
but the first train which was to carry
some of the ofiieials over the newly
laid road did not make its trip. There
remains now but a ntue cousiruyuwa
work to do in the vicinity of Mingo

with Pittsburg will be complete ami
Wabash trains can come directly into
this city.
President. Joseph Ramsey, Jr., of the
Wabash, who was to make the inspection
with the local officials of the
road, sent word to President Patterson.

Pittsburg.
Fairmont's avenues.
Fairmont has seven avenues which
will compare very favorably with
those of much larger cities. Fairmont,
rtr.d Locust: have the street car line
and are ''beautiful tor situation, wmm
their length adds greatly to their importance:
Walnut and Beuoni are quiet
and somewhat' secluded, giving- a
charm all their own; Maple loads toward
Wood lawn cemetery and many
are the visits made out that way by
those who have friend's in the "city of
tin,' dead;" Fast Park is fast: becoming
the most popular driveway In
town, us it has an excellent grade, and
lends into a beautiful region, while
Morgan town, than which none will be
prettier, needs only grading and paving
to bring it up with the others.
These are all fine residence avenues
and a driver over them will convince
even the most skeptical that Fairmont
is no mean city.
George Shearer Dead.
MANNINGTON, W. Va., May 20.?
(Special.)?George Shearer, of this
X>lace, was so terribly burned in an
oil well explosion in the Steuhenville

promised to-day by the striking j
freight handlers of New York. New ;

their strike effective by causing a
complete tie-up of the freight of ev- j

strike leaders, having, failed to bring j

lives to other terminal points of the j
road, and try to secure the assistance j
of the truckmen in those cities. l>y

strikers claim that, the company, not
being able to handle its freight business

would be forced to''suspend business
in tin's city or come'to term*. This
move failing, there is talk of bringing

The company is handling its
business without trouble today.

company was concerned, the affair
was closing-. Captain Miller said that
there were no conferences in prospect,
