MUSCATINE, la., May 17. — Three masked robbers smashed in a large plate glass last night in the residence of Hon. J. S. Cannon, and while one held the inmates under guard with revolvers, the other two stole everything valuable about the premises. 81.25 $2.00 ence, the Woman's Western Unitarian conference and the Western Unitarian Sunday Schools society opened to-day in All Souls Unitarian church, and will continue until Thursday. The Western Unitarian conference is the largest organization of that denomination in tho country, save the American Unitarian association with headquarters at Boston. Theso two bodies have grown somewhat apart in doctrine and object. The association announces as its object "to diffuse knowledge and promote the interests of pure Christianity." The conference repudiates the word "Christianity," and invites to membership "all who wish to join us to help establish truth and righteousness and love In the world." Some of the conference men, however, thought this was too broad, and accordingly seceded, and in 1880 formed the Western Unitarian Association on the lines of the eastern organization. Tho new movement never prospered and the Western Unitarian conference to-day includes nearly every Unitarian church in the west, its influence extending north ' to Minnesota, south to the Ohio river, east to Buffalo to the Rocky mountains. The Treatment of the Negroes In the South Denounced In Strong Terms—Missouri and Knw Hlvors Agnlu Rapidly Rising—. Matters of General Interest Reported by Telegraph. OMAHA, Neb., May 17.—Bishop Howman presided at to-day's session of the M. E. general conference. The committee on Itinerancy brought in a report recommending the abolition of the five year limit on appointment of pastors. The report favored the Idea permitting bishops to appoint pastors every year without reference to place to which ministers had been assigned tho year previous. The report was a special order for to-morrow. The committee on state of the church brought in a report that fairly bristled all over with denunciation of "outrages practiced upon tho colored race in the south." It called upon the government, state officials, the "Methodist church and all good citizens to arise in their might and abolish the indignities and outrages that are put upon colored people. The resolution declared that the colored people are treated shamefully on railway trains and at hotels and in every way. They were shot down like dogs, and the law of the land trampled under foot by people who despised the colored race. The resolution stirred up tremendous enthusiasm and the report was adopted by an unanimous rising vote. The election of officers then followed. The election of ugents of the Book Concern at New York was first. In order. Dr. Sanford Hunt and Dr. Homer Eaton were placed in nomination for re-election. Mr. Fields of Philadelphia, wanted to nsk some questlous, hut the chalrmau decided he was out of orde If he had been given tho floor he would have exploded a bomb touching the management of the New York Book Concern. Field had figures show ing that the great Book Con cern at New York, with a capital o 82,000,000, had made a net profit of 840,000 per annum during the past four years. Field wished to ask if that was considered good business ability, and if it would not be better to invest money at 0 percent, and get an Income from It of 8120,000 per annum. Mr Field holds to another fact in regard to tho business of the Book Concern, which is that while the house did businesssof $900,000 last year, 8500,000 is still outstanding uncollected. Eaton and Hunt were elected on the first ballot with practically no opposition. By resolution Rov. J. M. Rold was made honorary secretary of the mis sionary society. The eleqtion of agents for the Cincinnati Book Concern came next in order. On the first ballot Dr. Earl Cranston was the only candidate, ho received enough votes to elect. He was declared elected as one of tho agents. Knox (colored) from Kentucky, rocelvod one vote. He wlth- A second ballot was then or- in the history of the Republican party. Northern states, those which cast "a Republican electoral vote, had elected uninstrueted delegates, while only southern stoles had instructed their delegations. He did not think the situation now would justify prediction of the nomination of auy man whose name is now before the country. He certainly thought Harrison would not bo nominated on the first ballot. World's Columbian Matters. WANIIINOTO.N, May 17.—Director (loii- eral Davis, of the World's Columbian Exposition, had a hearing this morning before tho house committee on World's Columbian Exposition to urge an appropriation by congress in aid of the great exposition. Mr. Davis told the committee what had already been done, what still remained to bo done, and what scope the plans of the managers embraced. Everything now pointed, he said, to the greatest exposition ever held anywhere in tho world. Regarding Sunday closing, Davis said it was the object of tho Mr. managers to shut down all machinery on Sunday, and have only the art build- 'ngs and stationary exhibits open to peetators. It would seriously cripple the receipts to close entirely on Sunday. Mr. Walker of Chicago, told the committee that an amendment had been framed in the act by which the ocul corporation obligated Itself to meet and defray all expenses from now until the close of the exposition; that congress granted the aid asked, some of the best men of Chicago would hold themselves responsible for any further moneys needed, and would not ask aid fiom any source whatever again.
