The railroads which are suffering by reason of their tracks being submerged, are rapidly resuming their regular traffic, the rails beginning to show above the water. The smelter at Argentine is in full blast this morning, and all other manufacturing establishments which were obliged to suspend operations Saturday resumed this morning.

NKW YOKK , May 10.—The spring meeting of the "Brooklyn Jockey club opened to-day at Gravcsoiid with six events on the programme, including the great lirooklyn handicap, and which is worth 825,000. The first'race is to be called at 2:30, which, allowing for the usual delays at the post, will bring the Brooklyn handicap contestants to Hie post about 4:30 o'clock, with seventeen starters. It rained heavily last night and the track is very muddy this morning, but the bright sun and brisk winds of to- lay will help dry it out before the chief event is run oft'. Nearly all the trainers are of the opinion that Longstreet is unbeatable. At the siirne time a few will not concede this and pin their faith upon such good horses as Russel, Judge Morrow, Picknicker and Kingmaker. The last named is especially strong in mud, and as the truck is very heavy he will probably hnvc a good show. If the track seems very bad at the start Longstreet may not start. At 1 o'clock fully 10,000 people had found seats to witness the day's racing. The weather at that hour was bright and a strong wind blowing so the track will probably be in good condition when the great race of the day is called. The entries are Longstreet, to be ridden by McLaughlin, Raceland (Fitz- patriek), Banquet (Lamley), Judge Morrow (A Covington),Pessara (Taral), Clarendon (Murphy). Fairview (Gog- gett), Russell (Littlefleld), Picknicker (Anderson), Portchester (Sims), Hectare (Thompson), Major Domo (Hamilton), lladstone (Bergen), George W. (Midgely) and Kingmaker (Narviee).

To-day's Proceedings of the Methodist Conference.

OMA.UA , May 10. —Bishop Hurst occupied the chair to-day 1 in the Methodist Episcopal general conference. Dr. Swindells offered a resolution declaring that the army and navy of the United States should be instructed in religion and good morals, and asking congress to provide a sufficient number of chaplains for this purpose.. The resolution also recommends that a board of three bishops be appointed by the conference to pass upon the qualifications of all Methodist preachers applying for chaplainships in the army or navy, and that the president of the United States and secretary of war be requested to refuse all applications from Methodists who could uot furnish a recommendation of this board for the position of chaplain. Dr. Swindells declared there were ninety-two posts in the United States army now without chaplains. He thought this was a shameful neglect. The resolution was referred to the committee on temporal economy.

Dr. Buckley, the chief opponent of the admisstou of women in the Methodist church, got the tioor.

Dr. Kynett offered a resolution stating that tlu report 'on women as delegates should be freely and fully expounded. Dr. Buckley Hew into the breach in an instant. He thought the matter should be referred to the committee on lay representation. The advocates of women representation thought it should go to the committee on judiciary. After a long discussion the resolution went to the judiciary committee, which action was taken to indicate a i decided victory for the women. The memorial services begun Friday were completed. Dr. Buckley then presented the report of the committee on Episcpacy. The first part of the report recommended that Bishops Taylor and Thoburn be retained as bishops in Africa. That part of the report was adopted without discussion. Tho second part of the report recommended the retention in office of all the present bishops. Adopted. The third part of the report recommended no more bishops to be elected at present. The report was adopted almost unanimously. The fourth part recommended no colored bishops to be elected because there was no need for more bishops; that when the time should come for the election of more bishops, the question of color should not be considered. Adopted. The last purt of the report recommended that all present Episcopal residences be retained and that other residences be located at Detroit, in the state of Washington and in Japan and Europe. The report was amended so as to strike out the provision for residences in Europe and Japan and as iiuiended the report was adopted. Conference adjourned. Union Kx-FrlMonerH of War.
