ALL WATCHES SOLD AT AUCTION ABE WARRANTED FOR ONE YEAR By tbe Associated Press. Nkw York, May 25. Bishop Andrews presided over today's session of the gen eral M. E. conference. QThe first business that came up was the continuation ot the discussion on the tern peranco question. A successful attempt was made to hare stricken from the report submitted by the committee on temperance, tbe clause referring to the cause for eviction by tbe people. The election of general conference offi cers was then taken up and a ballot was or dered for the choice tf book agents for New York. Five names were placed In nomination. J. II. Phillips and Sanford B. Bant, present agents, were re-elected. For Cincinnati, Earl Cranston and W. P. Slowe were re-elected. The question as to a missionary bishop for India was dtecusswl. Dr. Lanahan again vigorously opposed such action. lie was suspicious of sudden conversions. Dr. Robinson, of India, answered him In scath ing tones. Ills speech was eloquently sec onded by Dr. J. E. Wilson. The report wr8 adopted, and Iter, J. M. Thobnrn was ee:ted. The following resolution was passed and was ordered placed In tbe discipline: "We are unalterably opposed to the en actment of laws that propose, by license, taxing or otherwise, to regulate tbe drink traffic, because they provide for Its continu ance and afford no protection against Its rav ages. We hold that tbe proper attitude ot Christians towards this traffic is one of un compromising opposition and while we do not presume to dictate to our people as to their political affiliation we do ex press the opinion that they should not permit themselves to be controlled by party organizations that are managed In the interests ot tbe liquor traffic. We ad vise members of our church to aid in tha enforcement of such laws as do not legalize or endorse tbe manu facture . and sale of Intoxicants to be used as beverage and to this end we favor organization of law and order leagues wherever practicable. We proclaim as our motto: Voluntary total abstinence from all Intoxicants as tbe true ground of personal action. THE PRESBYTERIANS. BOISTEROUS BASE BALLISTS. Tbe Indianapolis Hoys Make Things Lire . ly on n Little Miami Train. It appears that base ball 'players do not, at all times appreciate the fact that tbe public have rigbts which they ought to re spect. The following illustrates the point at Issue: "Coming over on the late Pan Handle train from Indianapolis Wednesday night was the Indianapolis base ball club. They were In a sleeper and so disturbed the Dass- engers with loud, rude and boisterous con duct, that the conductor threatened to side track the car at several places before be could settle them down. Finally they were induced tn.go to bed. after which they were as 3 as ever. Between Dayton and Xenla the conductor had trouble with them and Sheriff C. W. Llnkhart, of Greene county, who was on the train, told him that be wanted to take the whole party oil the train and have them punished for disorder ly conduct. But this tho conductor con cluded not to do. Base baliists can be gentlemen If they want to." FOR SQUIRREL SHOOTINC. ROMANTIC Two Countrymen Arretted tor Violating tne Game Law.
