A dispatch from Jackson last v.ftl.- k says: The Memphis Conference of the M. E. Church, South, opened its yearly session in this city today, with Bishop J. S. Key. of Sherman. Tex.. Dresidins The bishop read a part of the fifth chapter of Matthew as a lesson, taking what is known as the "beatitudes" a3 a basis for some striking and helpful remarks. He said, in part: "It was a great surprise to the disciples to hear about 'poverty of spirit,' etc. When a man is accused falsely he caL stand it, but suppose he knows the charges are true? Then he is rattled; he is disturbed. And finally, 'ye are,' said the Master, 'the salt of the earth.' Preachers should be the best of salt and the mo3t of it. 'But if the salt have lost its savor, wherewithal shall it be salted?' It is nearly impossible to restore a backslider, especially a backslidden preacher; he is good for nothing. If he gives up and goes back to the world he cannot succeed. He is good for nothing." After an earnest prayer by the pre siding bishop the secretary of the last session called the roll and a large number answered to their names. A. J. Meadows was re-elected secretary. W. J. McCoy, assistant secretary; L. D. Hamilton, statistical secretary. The usual committees were nominated by the presiding elders. A resolution was offered by W. C. Sellars and W. G. Heffley, calling for the appointment of one man, who should take charge of all the moneys coming into the conference, this plan to be put into effect one year hence. Ihe resolution was adopted. The report from the publishing house was read and showed a large increase in the volume of business, The church now has the publishing in terests located at Nashville, Dallas, Tex., and Shanghai, China. Almost all of the periodicals are now paying expenses. Some are bringing in hand some dividends. The board that represents the en dowment fund for the widows, or phans and worn out preachers asked that the Easter offerings be set apart for their fund. The request was re ferred to the Joint board of finance. The report of the Memphis Confer ence Female Institute was read, which showed a large attendance and good signs of prosperity, Rev. John Randle. now the oldest member of the conference, and who was admitted into the conference on trial in 1841, made a talk to the con ference that was full of tenderness Others of the old men spoke. These worn out brethren have the sympathy of the entire body. The church makes provision for the support of the worn out rr.pn. This is the easiest fund for superannuation in an old man, viz.. which we have to provide. The bish op said there were two signs of real when he can't sleep in a shed room as he once could and when he sees chil dren romping and feels that he wants to straighten them out. Then he is an old man and should be placed on the superannuated list. The old men render good service in the respective places where they reside. Thirty-nine undergraduates in the conference have taken the correspondence course of siudv provided by Vanderbilt Univer sitv and thirty-two of the number have completed the course of study. Special prayer was offered for some sick. Rev. G. T. Sullivan, presiding elder of the Memphis district, stated when his name was called, that Methodism in and near Memphis has made splen did progress. Several new churches, have been built and much of the old indebtedness on older churches has been paid. Rev. W. D. Jenkins, presiding elder of the Brownsville district, made an encouraeinsr report of his work. This district reports $600 excess on mis slonary claims. Rev. J. W. Blackard, presiding elder of the Jackson district, spoke of his district as in fine condition. Several good church buildings are in process of erection, one especially at Milan, which is to cost $6,000. Rev. G. W. Wilson, presiding elder of Dyersburg district, said that he thought that the pastors' salaries will be paid in full. All the presiding eld ers passed with good reports. The conference is well on the way. Rack Maxwell to Hang. Rack ifaxwell, who killed Claude Swann, a government detective, who was after him for counterfeiting last February, has been sentenced to hang at Gamesboro December 23. It was thought Maxwell would at tempt to prove an alibi, but he sur prised everybody by taking the stand and admitting the killing, claiming it was in self-defense. The jury found him guilty of murder with mitigating circumstances, but Judge Hull, when he came to pass sentence, ignored the jury's recom mendations. Fell on a Ripsaw. A frightful accident occurred at Trenton last week. Will Jurney, a highly respected young man, while working at the Wade Planing Mill, in some way fell, striking the rip-1 saw, which terriblv lacerated the back of his head and neck. There is little hope of his recover. Village Almost Destroyed. The village of Unionville, Bed ford count, was almost destroyed by fire on the 12th instant. Two store houses and the postoffice, be sides some minor buildings, were de- stro-ed. The loss was about $5,000, with insurance of $2,000. Raised the Prize Apples.

WILL AID TEXTILE WORKERS Delegates to Ameiican Federation So Decide By Unanimous Vote. Twenty-Fire Thousand Dollars Week for Three Weeks Will Be Sent to Kail River Strikers. San Francisco, Nov. 19. By unan- Imous vote, the delegates to the Araer- ican Federation of Labor on Friday decided to aid the striking textile workers of Fall River to the extent of $25,000 per week for three weeks. If by the end of this time it is found that the strike is not broken, the executive council will, If it sees fit, continue the donation. The money for the purpose is to be raised by an assessment of one cent each week levied on each member of every labor organization affiliated with the American Federa tion of Labor. Stirring and impassioned addresses on behalf of the workers of the Fall River district were delivered. Delegate Driscoll, of Boston, put the motion before the house, which was carried, amid the cheers of the entire convention. Many delegates arose in their seats, and, on behalf of the or ganizations which they represented, of fered then and there to hand over to Delegate Golden checks to cover the amount of their respective union's as sessments. Delegate Kcefe, of Chica go, handed over a check for $1,500 on behalf of the longshoremen, dock and marine workers of his city. Others quickly followed suit, a delegate from the Brewers' union even offering to turn over the actual cash if given a few moments time to get it. Further than considering a few res olutions, no other business was trans acted by the delegates, and an adjourn ment was taken until Saturday morn ing. During the evening, mass meetings in nearby towns were addressed ly different labor leaders. WEBER HELD FOR MURDER He Received the Xews of the Coron er's Verdict Wlthont Any Ap parent Emotion. Auburn, Cal., Nov. 19. Adolph Web er received news of the coroner's Jury verdict charging him with the murdoi of his father, mother, sister and broth er without apparent emotion, and said nothing concerning it. His demeanoi in court was unchanged. C..D. R. Han cock gave some important testimony. which still further complicates the mystery. Mr. Weber's body was found in the bath room. He testified that he was one of the first persons on the scene. He broke the lower pane o. the front window of the front room from which the bodies were taken cut As he came down the steps of the porch, later, he thought Adolph Webei had come up. The back window ol the dining room was broken, and there was no fire in that room. The whole hall was on Cre, and no one could have passed through it. The bath room was all dark when the house was pretty well burned down. He broke the win dow and looked in, but could see noth ing, and there was no fire in the room. CASES WERE DISMISSED Men Chargred With Complicity in the Depot Explosion nt Victor, Col., nre Sow lree. Cripple Creek, Col., Nov. 19. Dis trict Attorney Trowbridge on Friday dismissed the cases of 43 men who had been charged with complicity in the Independence depot explosion and the Victor riot of June 6 last. Two of the men had been in jail five months. The others were out on bonds. There re main similar charges against 17 men, including Charles H. Moyer, president, and William D. Haywood, secretary- treasurer of the Western Federation ol Miners, but it is doubtful whether these cases will ever be tried. Since the election, about 50 men who had been deported have returned to the district, and have not been mo lested.

IN SUSPENSE AGAIN. Russia Wants to Know What Kuro- patkin Is Doing. St. Petersburg, Nov. 21. The sus pense engendered by the Japanese at tack on Poutiliff Hill continues. This movement has proved unsuccessful It aimed merely to capture a Russian position, but whether it was Intended to mask activity at some other point along the front has not yet developed Some correspondents note what they consider significant Japanese move ments on the Russian right, and oth ers that a Japanese column is moving fifty or sixty miles eastward; but the opinion in military circles seems to be that no great movement is likely to transpire before the fate of Port Ar thur is decided. At the same time it is recalled here that Gen. Kuropat- kin's great aggressive movement of last month was In full swing a week before the outside world realized what was occurring. LIVING IN THE TRENCHES. Oku's Army Is Standing First Cold Weather Very Well. Field Headquarters of the Second Japanese Army, Nov. 19, 2 p.m., via Fusan, Nov. 20. The past few days have been unusually quiet along the Shakhe river. The front of Gen. Oku's army and the Russians have been firing only occasional shots. The armies have been lying intrenched and practically in touch for over a month, but there have been only cav alry and small Infantry skirmishes. The Japanese are virtually living in the trenches, and the army is stand ing the first cold weather very well. The winter clothing has proved ex cellent for the purpose. GENERAL ATTACK. Assault on Port Arthur Resumed on November 13 and 19. Che Foo, Nov. 21. The general at tack on Port Arthur was resumed No vember 18 and 19, acoording to the re port of persons arriving here today from Dalny.

Even the officers detailed to work at the base do not know what their com rades at the front are doing. November 16 a peculiarly heavy ex plosion shook every ship lying at Dalny. Thegixplosion was ascribed to the blowing up of land mines or a magazine. FEELING HIS WAY. Oyama Is Planning a Big Movement to Occupy Mukden. St. Petersburg, Nov. 20.

Beat, Bruise and Murder Citizens cf the Island of Crete. Canea, Island of Crete, Nov. 21. Disgraceful scenes transpired yester day, when several groups or officers and men of the vessels belonging to the Baltic fleet. In this port, left va rlous saloons and paraded the streets, The Russians were evidently heav ily intoxicated. Brandishing their swords and other weapons, they made a wild rush at the peaceable passerby, At least five of these were murdered by the drunken Russians, many oth ers wounded and a large number cuffed and beaten. The brawls con tinued late into the night. Under cover of darkness the drunk en sailors grew wilder still and their shouts and loud talk scared most peo ple into their houses. The streets which the Russians chose to make their stamping grounds became prac tically deserted by the residents. It is reported that at least forty of the Russian sailors have so far deserted. Evidence of unimpeachable character exists showing that the discipline on board the Russian ships is unparal leled in its laxity and that the men, being intoxicated most of the time, cannot be controlled by the few of their sober and serious-minded offi cers. Second Squadron. Copenhagen, Nov. 20. The vessels of the second division of the second Russian Pacific squadron resumed their journey northward from Lange- land this morning.
