Miss Edna M. Sehulte and Mrs. Fidelia Elliott of this city, are candidates for the position of delegate to the Republican national convention at Minneapolis. Since woman suffrage waB conferred on sisterhood of this state they have become adepts in pulling wire political. The first stept in the journey to Minneapolis has been taken in their election as delegates from Laramie county to the state convention, which convenes here 1 Wednesday. It is considered probable that one will be selected. Ilcpubllcan Primaries. KANSAS CITY , May 2.—The Star's Tope-ka, Kan., spccialsays: The Republican connty conventions and primaries held in Wilson, Lyon, Ellis, Saline, Chase, Lincoln, Gear, Clay, Decatur, Newton, Sheridan, Pratt, Riley and Republic counties Saturday, throw but little light on the gubernatorial situa- tipn. Smith secured more delegates tlian any other candidate, but no delegation was tied to him by instructions. FOREIGN AFFAIRS.

In many respects this gathering is the most important of its character that has been held for many decades, for more than a year there have been rumors of an impending change in the policy of the church, some of them of a radical character, which can be effected only by, the legislation 'of the greatest deliberative body of the denomination, this will be the twenty-seventh general conference in the history of the church, the first having been held in llaltimore in 17S4, when the church was young and the delegates scattering. Amon g the questions which the conference will bo called upon to decide are those relating to an increase in the number of bishops, the time limit controversy, the question of giving the colored, brethren representation on the board of bishops, and the right of women to sit as delegates. The bishop question is uppermost and has dislodged the woman question from first place. Pour years ago the all-absorbing question among Methodists centered around the sisters: were they, or were they not, laymen? For four days the last general conference wrestled, wrangled, debated, fussed and fumed about the women until it was red in the face. The women delegates— there were five of them, including Frances E. Willard—were not admitted to the conference. The question was submitted to a vote of the church and was shelved. So the women won't be "in it" here. The brethern had to discuss something, arid so turned from the woman question to the more recent but equally perplexing bishop question. The problem which is presented to the general conference for solution is more mystifying than Sturm's theorem, or the pons asinorum three times over. There are eighteen bishops on the episcopal board, including the twomissionary bishops. They hold oiliee for. life, and no provision is found in the book of discipline for retiring them, unless for maladministra­ tion or some kindred cause. Some of these good bishops are well along in cars, Three of them are over 70, and it is said they have survived their period of usefulness. Hut they beg 'leave to differ and do not care to relinquish theiu office because they havo reached the years of three score and ten'. It is quite likely that several new bishops will be elected, nnd in addition several missionary bishops, one for South America, one for China and Japan, and for Europe. About a score of men are mentioned for these places. Dr. Drees would make a capital bishop for South America, of which part of the vineyard he is now superintendent. Dr. M. C Harris of San Francisco, or Dr. Nathan Sikes of Foo Chow could not bo improved upon for China and Japan. Dr. William Hurt of Rome, will surely be considered if it is decided to locate missionary bishop in Europe. A strong memorial will be presented to the conference asking it to enact such legislation as will enable pastors to drop members who do not support the church according to their ability, to elect bishops for eight years without privilege of re-election, to remove the limit from the pastorate, to provide for the election of presiding elders with or without the nomination of the bishop, and to give the cabinet with the bishop the power of making appointments, a majority of the presiding elders being sufficient to determine an appointment. Pratt County Republicans. PBATT , Kan., May 2.—[Special.]—The largest and most enthusiastic Republican convention ever held in Pratt county, convened here last Saturday. Every the field will outnumber the solid Smith vote by a large majority. I'rlcoft or Coal Advanced. ''"NEW YOHK , May 2.—In accordance with the action of the anthracite coal producing companies the price of coal, both here and at western points, was increased 25 cents per ton. This unusual action at this time of year is intended to protect the individual operators against the increase made in freight rates by the trunk lines and coal roads a short time ago. The advance in prices west will bo of benefit oiily to the independent operators who have made arrangements for the control of their production by the Reading cojiibinatioii. Skipped Out. GREAT UEND , Kan., May 2. —[Special.] Boyd it Murphy, proprietors of the Morrison hotel, skipped by the light of the moon, last night, going out at the back door to Sterling, in order to evade detection. They left several parties in the lurch, to the amount of a ItSvi hundred dollars, among the num ber being their cook, hired girls, gro cerymen and butchers. Quite a sensation has been created.

LONDON , May 2.—May day has come and gone and the expected rioting did not occur. May day in Paris 'ind France was, instead of being, as many persons supposed it would be, a day of excitement, fighting and bloodshed, without exception one of the quietest most auneventful Sundays that has passed in many Jyears. The same applies with equal force to the day in England. Worklngmen's Demonstration. VIENNA , May 2.—This afternoon 00,000 workingmen gathered on Pater. No speeches were made, but at !> o'clock on the giving of the signal the vast as - - semblage broke forth singing "the worklngmen's hymn," with wonderful enthusiasm. No troops were visible throughout the day. Reports from Austrian provinces indicate that the interest in May day celebrations is de clining. At Hilda I'esth. limiA PKHTH , May 2.—In spite of police prohibition, the workingmen of this city gathered at the thirty-two different places to-day and marc lied in a procession to Nunsdorfer park to celebrate, the day.

CnicAoo, May 2.—The Missouri synod of the Evangelical Lutheran church was in private session this afternoou. The committee on the school question, it was understood, were submitting their report and after the debate which was to follow a set of resolutions would be adopted and made public setting forth the exact position of the synod on the compulsory school laws. Amateur Rowing Association. CiiK'.uio, May 2.—The executive committee of the Mississippi Valley Am atcur Rowing association has decided to hold its annual regatta at St. Joseph, Mo., on Lake Contrary. There will be a lai-ge entry list this year, including Detroit, i Grand Rapids, To ronto, St. Paul, Minneapolis, St. Louis and Chicago, and no doubt entries will be received from New Orleans and Salt Luke. The Coining Knights Templars' Conclave .DENVKH , Col., May 2.—Over 00,000 people, Knights Templars and their families have already had quarters assigned them in Denver for the conclave in August.

Republican Victory In France. PAWS , May 2. —M. Lobet, prime min ister and minister of the interior, today informed the members of the cab inet that the returns of the municipal elections show a continued increase in the number of the Republican candidates elected.

WASHINGTON, May 2.— The Democrats in the house tried to pass tho free binding twine tariff bill, under suspension of the rules. The Bepubli- township in Pratt county waB fully cans declined to vote, but a quorum or- represented. They elected to the To-1 dered a second to the motion. The peka convention the following delegates: Hon. J. C Ellis, James Kelley, Robert Anderson, Lyman Fowler, and Silas Young, supposed to be a Smith delegation. They also elected a full delegation to the Kinsley, Hutchinson and Kingman conventions, and wound up tholr proceedings by a unanimous request that Judge James Kelley become a candidate from Pratt county for state senator from this district. Btafford County Delegation, ST. Joira, Kan., May 2.—[Special.]— The statement made in some of our papers that our delegation was solid for Long and Murdock is not true, as the delegations for both congressman and governor are equally divided. It was the intention of our good Republican friends to have it that way, but they were slightly disfigured by an innocent amendment to the order of business. Their report should have been slightly disfigured but half in the ring. Wyoming May Hend a Woman Delegate.

Vilas, ex-secretary of the interior, will he tho second choice. The financial and Commercial Outlook Kovlewod by Henry Clews NEW YOHK , April 30.— [Special-)—The Wall street markets continue vacillating and uncertain, though farely active. During the past week, "bear' influences have seemed to preponderate. London has shown some timidity and disposition to realize, notwithstanding the growing case in money thore, and the selling here on Loudon account has stimulated the export of gold, which again has affected the stock market unfavorably. The un- ertainty about the relations between the Pennsylvania railroad and the combined anthracite roads has not disappeared and still continues to throw a certain degree of doubtaround that important group of stocks; while the weather of the week has contributed nothing towards solving the uncertainty that hangs around the crop prospects. In the absence of any important immediate counter-factors,this group of influences has produced u pre ponderancc of selling over buying and the tendency of prices has been down ward. Kut, at the same time, the bull" side maintains its couruge and shows no abatement of confidence in a future higher range of prices; but quite willing to allow ample rope to the bears for creating a "short" interest. The market is naturally sensitive to the exports of gold, and the current shipments dispose some operators to curtail transactions until it becomes more apparent what dimensions the movement is likely to assume. It Ik not easy to see, however, what good reasons there are for any apprehension on this point. Thus far this year have exported from New York about $1(1,500,000 of gold and imported 8(1, 000,000, making the net export 810,000, 000. This is somewhat in excess of the normal movement for tnis season of the year. For the five years, 1887 to 1801 inclusive, the net export of the United States, for the first four months of the year, averaged only 84,700,. 000; so that, for the ex pired portion of 1892, we are about 80,000,000 in advance of the usual movement; and assuming the present conditions to be normal, we might infer that this excess should tend to diminish future shipments. We have to anticipate, however, a larger outflow following this month; and it is supposed four millions at least will go out by to-mdrrdw'a steamers. In the years Weather Indications. ; WABHINOTOS, May 2.— Forecast till 8, p. m. Tuesday. For Kansas; Show era, followed by fair in western Kaiv history ot the United States a womaa i sis'; variable winds. next Saturday's shipment; which is not a prospect to excite uny uneasiness. There is a limit to which the balance between the current merchandise imports and exports should be regarded an Indicating tho probable export, of specie. The imports have been swelled beyond the ordinary limits by thc pressure of European, manufacturers to find in our markets an outlet for their goods. The surplus products accumulated abroad in consequoncc of trade depression have caused large declines in prices, which has no doubt induced some of our importers to buy more freely than they otherwise would; but. it has had it much more important effect in causing the consignment of goods to this country, to be sold for what they will bring, or to be held for limit price. The value that these, consignments may realize will, as a rule, be very different from that at which they arc entered at the custom houses; and, t,n this extent, tho figures of importa arc considerably above the remittances that will have to be made in payment. In the majority of these cases, the consignees make remittances of a certain percentage of the value of the goods in advanco of their sale; and it is not Improbable that such payments may havo materially contributed to swell the specie exports of the last four months beyond their ordinary volume. So far as. such unsatisfactory remittances have been made, future remittances will be reduced. The increasing ease In money at all tho Kuropean centres may be expected to prove some check upon our export of gold: for a point must be reached at which the foreign banking houses will prefer to allow balances to rest here rather than feed the glut of mouey on their own markets. Thursday's reduction of the Rank of England rate to 2 per cent, is calculated to encourage this drift towards case, and tuny be expected to foster investment in our securities. The position of the grain trade seems to forecast probabilities favorable to our retention of gold. The important information contributed by our minister at St. Petersburg, as to the situation produced by the great famine of [tussia, warrants the conclusion that virtually no export of grain may be expected from that country out of the next crop, and it is likely to require years to restore Russia to her former status as a source of ceral supplies. A very lurge hiatus in the world's product of breadstuffs is thus created, and it will devolve chiefly upon the United States, as tho principal exporting country, to fill the vacuum. Tho inference from this prospect is that, If we have another good crop year, we shall nevertheless realize high prices for our grain; and if wo should have a poor crop, tho consequent still higher prices obtained for tho surplus of 1011,0011,000 bushels of wheat to be carried over into the coming crop year will be an abundant compensation for the. failure, whilst we shall be likely to be enabled to keep our stock of gold in good shape. Thus the prospect for tint future of our agricultural interest and for the railroad interest so directly dependent upon it may bo regarded as more than ordinarily satisfactory. The preparations for tho proposed International monetary conference appear to have reached it point which leaves little or no doubt about its early realization. From the best sources of information, we learn that Grain Itrit- ain, France, Germany, flelglum, and Italy have already informally expressed to our ministers at those courts their willingness to participate in such a conference.. IIK.NKV Ct.Ews. The Actors' Fair. NEW YOHK , May 2.—Tho great actors' fair for the benefit of the actors' fund of America, which has created tremendous controversy in the profos- opened in Madison Square Garden tills afternoon. It is the most remarkable affair of the kind ever held in this country. The immense garden has been transformed into streets and promenades lined with May-poles and oriental mosques and booths, representations of Shakespeare's Globe thc- tre in London, of the Ancient Duke's theatre of Stratford-on-Avon, the home of Shakespeare, of Dickens' old curiosity shop and numerous other reminls- censes. In each booth fancy articles will be sold by well known female members of the profession, and it is expected that fully 8150,000 will bo received during the week. The contributions in advance already reach over 840,000, the donors including Orover Cleveland, George W. Childs, Mrs. Frank Leslie, Dr. De Witt Talmage, Col. Elliott F Shcppard, Mrs. Kendall, James Gordon llenne l .t, Joseph Pulitzer and members of the theatrical profession here and abroad by the hundred. 1490, '89, '88 and '87, the net dxports of gold for the whole country, for the months of May, June and July, averaged 815,000,000, which may be taken as a normal movement for that period of the year, Should the excess In the last four months, above referred to, be credited against this 815,000,000, it is inferable that the noxt three months' export requirements may amount lo about 810,000,000, after allowing for Cattle Men Will Combine. OoriBN, May 2.—The purpose of the cattle men's congress, which is in session hero is to unite all stock growers'- associations that exist at present in the '• different states and territories into one association, with its headquarters at Ogden, Utah. An executive committee consisting of one delegate from Neveda, Idaho, Wyoming, Colorado and Utah, has been elected, to whom all matters from subordinate organizations will be referred. Resolution* were adopted protesting against the legislation now pending on the manufacture of oleomargarine, providing for a showing of hay fed cattle at the world's fair for record of all stock brands in the several states and territories where subordinate stock organizations exist, these records to be distributed to each secretary for mutual protection;and expressing theirsympa- thy with the Wyoming cattlemen in their recent trouble and now confined at Fort Russet, Wyo.
