KANSAS CITY, May 10.—The Star's Emporia special says; The Republican convention of this (Fourth) congressional district, which met at noon today, will probably result in a long deadlock. Each of the five delegates has a home delegation instructed for him, and Greenwood county is the only lighting ground in sight. None of the delegates will admit of having a second choice, and it has so far been impossible to effect a combination against Charles Curtis of Topeka, who has forty-throe votes pledged for the first ballot, lacking only eighteen of enough to nominate him. J. W.Moore of Marion county has a strong loyal following. His delegates number 23. Lou Finch also has a loyal delegation, although there is some talk of their breaking away. Candidate Buck of Emporia, who was supposed to be in the race for the fun of the thing, seems now to be in dead earnest. Mr. Milton has a following of 18. Marsh Murdoek is the only gubernatorial candidate present, but Farmer Smith is represented by Itill liiggins who holds Bon Simpson's proxy. Otis Wants to bo Konoinlnnted. TOPEKA, Kan., May 10.—Congress man John G. Otis of this district will, in oto-morrow's Advocate, announce himself as a candidate for re-election. He has written a letter of half a column to the Advocate, in which he de nounces the circulation of the report that he would not stand for renomina tion as malicously false, and compares it to the thrusting of a knife in a man's back when he is engaged in perform ing his legitimate duties. Ho says he is not a candidate for renomination in the sense of packing the convention and engaging in other political trick' Jry, but that he will seek a spontane Aus endorsement at the hands of the convention.

Proceedings of the Methodist Quadrennial Conference. SUNDAY AND'THE WORLD'S FAIR. A Resolution Adopted to the Effect That It Would be Hotter to Have no Fair Than Have It Opened to the Public on Sundays —Other Matters of Interest. OMAHA, Neb., May 10.—Bishop W. Fitzgerald, presided at to-diiy's session of the Methodist conference The committee on Episcopacy was ex pected to report to-day, but the com mittce will not be ready on account of the. fact that the colored brethren arc pulling every possible string to secure the election of a colored bishop. The report will not be submitted until Thursday or Friday. The fight over the editorial chair of the Centennial Advocate, of St. Louis, is growing interesting. It lies between Dr. Masden of St. Luuis, Dr. Bowman Young of Kansas City, and Dr. Creighton of the Nebraska Weslyan university. The rules were suspended, and the report of the committee on Columbian exposition called for. The report declared strongly against Sunday opening. In closing the report he said: 'Better that the- Columbian exposition never bo opened at all than that the gates be opened Sunday." The committee heartily favored the appropriation of 85,000,000 provided the gates be closed Sunday; but if the gates were to be opened Sunday, then the conference was asked to oppose the appropriations. Several vigorous speeches were made favoring the resolutions. The preamble and resolutions were endorsed, but were recommitted for revision. The conference then took up the re- port'of the committee on constitution. Dr. Bullteley moved that Chairman Morrill 'of the committee explain the changes suggested by the report. Dr. Neeley was opposed to the idea of permitting any of the bishops to speak. Even explanations, he said, were sometimes very strongargument. Dr. Miley of Drew seminary, was surprised that i Dr. Neeloy should make such a speech. Is it possible he asked that we are afraid to let our bishops speak upon topics that come before this body? Are the interests and doctrines in dang er when a bishop takes the floor? Dr. Uulkely took the floor and ar gued vehemently for the motion to permit Bishop Morrill to speak. There were two diseases, he said, that broke out in general conferences. One was bishoposis, a sort of unnatural fear of bishops, and the other was bishopho- mania, (laughter). An intense desire to be elected to the episcopacy. He hoped neither of these would so warp the minds of the brethern that they would not have confidence in the impartiality of bishops to such an extent as to exclude them from the iloor. The resolution giving Bishop Morrill the privilege of explaining the report on the constitution carried. pursuit.

NKW YOIIK, May 10.—The Times has specials from correspondents in twenty-two states, giving a careful summary of tin' acreage, condition, prospects and probable yield of cotton, corn and wheat. The prospect, as given in the Times summary, is not cheering. The cotton acreage lias greatly decreased. The drought has seriously effected the crop in some states, and the acreage will be much less than last year. Corn 1ms suffered from the late spring, but more particularly from the continuous rains. In some states plowing is not half done while in others it is not yet begun. Still, if good weather should come at once there would be the average acreage and yield. Of the wheat growing states South Dakota is the only one that promises a large crop, the acreage being 00, and it will probably yield 3 per cent, greater than last year. Reports from other states are discouraging. Their Drinking Led to a Fight.

DUI.UTII, Minn., May 10.—The chief argument of the advocates of the Hatch or Washburne anti-option bills i before congress has been overthrown here. It has been the contention that wheat trading on boards of trade was mere "wind speculation," that none of the purchases or sales made were intended to be actually carried out, and that board of trade speculation was only valuable to depress prices. This may be so as regards some markets, but it is certainly not so here, and the Diiluth board of trade has shown itself during the past week far the largest market for actual heat in the world. On "May deliveries" here over 12.000,000 bushels of grain are stated by the secretary of the Duluth board to have already changed hands, going from receivers and eon signees to the hands of shippers. This wheat has been the sales of farmers for the past six months, made many cases when the market tiled ten to fifteen cents higher for May wheat than now, and the advantage of this difference has been to the farmer,- who would not have been able to gain it had anti-option bills been in force, for speculation in futures would be killed. The 12,000,000 to 15 000,000 bushels of May deliveries on the Duluth board are ten times the ac tual wheat deliveries of all other boards in the country combined. The Pnrkhurst Revelations.
