HI. E. CONFERENCE
AT HUNTINGTON
IN OCTOBER
^ay Conference
Will Meet Also
WHEELING, Sept. 23.?The annual
rest Virginia conference of the Methlist
Episcopal c'nurch will take place
t Huntington the early part of the
liming month and will begin on the
th and continue throughout the week,
he presiding officer will be Bishop
lenry Spellmeyr, D. D. LL. D. This
111 be*Bishop Spellmeyr's first visn
) the West Virginia conference, he
avlng been elected at the last genrI
conference. However, the bishop Is
ot unknown to the West Virginia miniters
and he will receive a royal weijme.
This conference will probably be
amewhat more Interesting than usual
'om the faC'-'that there are some
amendments to the constitution to be
oted upon. Under this head will
ame up several matters, one of them
eing relative to the ratio of the genral
conference which has been rearded
by some as too low, and there
ill be an amendment submitted to
lis conference to increase the ratio
> as to decrease the membership of
le general conference. The present
ttio of annua! ministerial representson
is at least one delegate for an
nnuai conference and there may be
ne additional delegate for every fourien
members of an annual conference
nd must not exceed one for every 45
lembers for an equal representation
t lay delegates.
The Annual Lay Conference,
ill also meet at Huntington, but will
ot open until the 11th of October,
his body meets ouadrenially the year
receding the general conference. The
aestlons submitted to this body on a
range in the constitution ot the
lurch will be a new experience for It.
here will be an amendment to vote
pon at this meeting to make the predershlp
elective by the membership
i i-Kn anmmi mnfArence. Under the
resent laws they are appointed by
te bishop. This Is not a new question
>r it has been discussed at various
mes form, the early history of the
rurch.- But the most important queson
to be submitted to the conference
ill be one sent down from the last
eneral conference In favor of electig
bishops for the various races and
mguages. At present the church has J
vo classes of bishops they being the
eneral superintendents and the misonary
bishops. The latter applies to
Ishops /in restricted territories In the
>relgn countries. If the annual conirence
adopt this amendment the next
eneral conference will remove the
srm missionary and all local bishops
ill be elected to places restricted by
inguage or races, and the general suerintendency
will remain unchanged.
The West Virginia district Is growlg
rapidly In membership and extenIve
mlslsonary work as well as carig
for the regular work and It Is this
larked success that is expected Ui
lake the conference at Huntington.
Extremely Interesting.
An interesting part of the confernce
will be the annual examinations
tat the young ministers are required
} pass. Fot\thls purpose a board of
xamlners, composed of sixteen memera,
whose duty .it is to encourage
ad stimulate the young men In the
lastery of the course prescribed by
be church will be appointed by the
residing officer.
Just here It might be said that
luntington will be tested as to her ensrtalning
ability, as there will be sevral
secret societies and other organ:atlons
who will convene there at the
ame time of the conference. The
llntsters from the Wheeling district
ill leave on the 8th of October, while
he lay delegates from the city ana
Iclnity will not take their departure
efore the 11th.
One thing that is sincerely regretted
y the churches of the Wheeling dlsrict
is the fact that Dr. C. B. Graham,
residing elder of the district, must
eslgn, he having served six years and
i not eligible for reappointment. An
likely successor to Dr. Graham, the
lev. 3. K. Arbuthnot, D. D., of Clarkeurg,
Is spoken of in the highest terms
nd it is understood that he has reeived
invitations from various churchs
in the district, uTglng him to accept
he presiding eldership.
Dr. Graham, however, wll remain
a his offlctal capacity until the close
f the conference when the bishop will
sslgn him to a church and appoint

EIGHTY QUIT WORK FOLLOWING
REFUSAL OF DEMAND FOR
MORE MONEY.
WHEELING, Sept. 23.?On account
I of SO lioy-3 employed at the Imperial
glass factory at Bellalre, going on a.
strike the big plant has closed down, J
the management having decided on
this course, after several efforts to
reach a settlement.
Fully 500 men are affected by the
strike. The boys went on a strike
last week and demanded an advance
of 25 cents on the day. They get |1
and want $1.25.
The company offered to compromise
by increasing the wages to $1.15 a
day and at a meeting held Sunday afternoon
the boys rejected the offer and
the management decided to suspend
operations, pending a settlement on
the above basis.
The boys at the Rodefer giass works
have Joined in the strike, demanding
the same Increase and it is likely the
management of this factory will follow
the policy of the Imperial. With both
plants Idle the strike of the boys will
affect 800 men.
