When Any of the lMlexates Want to Say Anything, the President * Fern I* Hot Keqalred - There Wu ft Urely Time When • Charge Was Made Against The Rev. W. F. Forman— The Proceed ings - Annual Meeting of the Welle lie y The Kentucky Conference of the African M. E. Church which is going on at Washington Chapel on Dearborn street, near Twenty. ninth, is a most informal gathering. If preacher wants to say something he just gets up and talks without bothering about the formalities of: "Mr. rresmeni, juaies ana gentlemen." The delegates sit around in graceful and easy matures, or walk from place to place, talking in plainly audible tones. This informality makes the meetings interesting when a good discussion is on. Yesterday the trustees of the Twelfth Street Church in Louisville made a charge against the Rev. W . F. Forman, pastor of the church. Twelfth Street, Louisville, is the rich church *f the district It stands in the African Church in about the same relative position as that of Grace Church of Chicago in u American branch. The pastor is paid $900 year. On account of the importance of the congregation there was great interest : outcome of the fight, which was led by Thom as Cross, a little trustee. Mr. cross presented the petition for the appointment oi Mr. Waters of Zion Church of New York to the Twelfth Street Church. 4'H is true," said Mr. Cross, " that sixty members voted for Mr. Forman, but that was because he was present at the time. One lady said: 'lam too tender - hearted to hurt man's feelings by voting against him before bis face.' 'Deed she did, brother." Mr. Forman arose to reply. He is a man with whiskers, and his resonant fairly crushed little Mr. Cross. "I do not wish to stay m any church where I am i wanted. But I desire to say that this vote \ not an honest one. The church wishes me stay in spite of the intrigues of the Board of Trustees, lney nave forcibly seized conference money ; they have forcibly seized Sun day - school money ; they have forcibly seized " It is so," shouted Mr. Forman, shaking his fist under Mr. Cross' nose. "Money has been collected and it has not been turned in." " Do you mean to say, then," roared Presiding Elder Smith Clarkson of Missouri. " do you mean to say, sir, that the balance has "Say, Bishop," shouted an e: preacher. The Bishop did not answer. " 0, Bishop, can't I speak?" " I think you had better not." The excited nreacher sat down. " Bishop, can't I speak, came from another you sit down, too." Everybody sat down except Elder Clark son, who reclined against the back of a pew and laughed hoarsely. The Bishop then stepped out and made a pacifying speech. He is a man of considerable eloquence and a fine education, and after he had produced quiet he went for the old habit of the African Church of voting for a pastor. " It doesn't come from John Wesley certainly," said the Bishop. "It is a bad practice. Any one can see that after a church has called for one preacher and another one is supplied the preacher sent is not likely to be Dleaaantlv received." "That's right," said a delegate: "I would sooner go out and eat hay like the Hebrew of 6u than so where I wasn't. nU » Some of the reports were of a pathetic char - ma EST. KB. WASHINGTON. Then he would go on to explain thai the preacher couldn't go because the church was too poor and his family was too big. " It's hand to preach the w'ud w'en dar h aint no coon - bread in de cubburd," said one old parson. Many ladies listened to the day's proceed - ings and to the sermon preached at night by ' the Bev. R. T. Anderson. MEETING OF THE PLYMOUTH CLUB. . First Seaatoa This Seaaon— Interesting - Snb - - Jeeta to Be Discussed.

This is preeminently the age of great dis coveries and wonderful inventions. A few years ago the steam engine, the steamship, the telegraph, the telephone, the electric - light, and various other inventions were unknown to man. The discoverers and inventors of all these things and everything else that has been of great value to mankind met with the strongest opposition and had to perfect their inventions in the face of persecution, calum ny, and misrepresentation. Admitting that the scientists and roicroscon - ists and all the leading minds of the century have been actively at work battling against ignorance and superstition that they might give to the race such inventions and discov eries, they have never been able to conceive of anything that would successfully combat and destroy the innumerable armies of microbes varm in the au we breai. we drink, the food we eat ; nay ! which infest every being and which carry down to le nee, and flood combined. This has been the great need of the world— to dis cover tne cause oi tne many ins to which mankind is subject, and likewise an effectual cure for the same. It has well been said that health— God's best gift to man— is the only stock in trade we have, and since it has been demonstrated beyond the possibility of a doubt by the patient and thorough investigations of the leading scientists of the world that microbes - are the cause or an diseases, it will ireely be admitted that a genuine Microbe Killer, in it* action death to microbes, would be the grandest discovery ever made by man. The world is indebted to none other than William Hadam. the subject of our sketch, far the invention of a genuine Microbe Killer due only to his patient, persistent, and labo - uuBiuuuiui» neiu oi sciennnc researcn. He an American, and his name will on down tn future ages inscribed upon the scroll of fame far above that of every other inventor or hon. ef actor ot his race. In early life an ordinary florist he has for many years made a study of nature's laws and of her operations in bringing about change and decay in organic formations with the result that he has been able to define a close parallel between animal and vegetable life in the cause and cure of every digression from a standard health. In his investigations he has advanced far beyond the line of theory. Long ago a steady watch on the «euings oi nature led mm to formu the idea that cerms or microbes nr* th» immediate cause of every health disturbance ; but he did not rush into print with it. He tested its value, and only now, when thousands and millions of persons throughout the country can testify to it, does he offer to the world a complete and exhaustive history of his important discovery. It simplifies disease and the treatment of disease. It clears away the mysteries with which medicine has \mo h»n enshrouded, and points out a plain, well - de - uueu way oy wmcn neaim can be sustained, and consequently life prolonged. The magnitude which the business has reached can best attest to the success of his great enterprise. There are already fourteen factories and laboratories established for the manufacture and sale of the Microbe Killer, located as follows: Factory No. 1, Austin, Tex. ; No. 2, New Orleans, La.; No. 3.

She Threatens to Resign Unless Certain Altered Wrongs Are Corrected. Sax Francisco, Sept 8.— Honolulu advices say Sister Rose Gertrude is the focus of a storm in Hawaii On her arrival from England, instead of being sent to the Molokai leper settlement, as was intended, she was placed in a receiving hospital at Kalihi, two miles from Honolulu. This is where all persons suspected of leprosy are examined, as are also some of the lepers selected by Dr. Lutz, a specialist lately arrived from Germany. Recently the, community was surprised by an announcement in a morning paper that Sister Rose had stated to are porter that unless certain matters were remedied by the Board of Health she would resign the same day. Representative W. Earns, a native member, moved in the Legislature for a select committee to investigate the complaints made by Sister Rose against the management of the hospital. He related that he took this action at the request of the sister. The committee was appointed and took the testimony of many witnesses at the institution. It has been announced to the House by the Chairman of the committee that owing to the importance of the subject the report of the committee would be printed before its presentation. The sister's chief complaint is that Charles Kahaljkili, resident overseer of the hospital himself detained as a leper, has interfered with the affairs of herself and the doctor. She charges him with advising the patients not to take the prescriptions, and counseling them rather to trust in God and of practicing some of the arts of the Hawaiian Kahuna or medicineman. It is complained that Charles made patients work when the sister as nurse, under the order of Dr. Lutz, as a physician, prescribed rest; also, that, although a leper, he ouslv is Sister Rose incensed, however, over the offensive remarks that the overseer is reported to have made among the inmates about the sister going, out for airings with the doctor. His gossip having got beyond the hospital into the city increases the offense, es pecially as a iormer minister, wno is also an ex - member of the Board of Health, told the Roman Catholic Bishop that it might be necessary for the Board of Health to demand the sister's resignation. The cause of all this talk is that the sister and doctor have sought recreation from their unpleasant duties in jaunts selves bv amateur nhotncranhv nn t.h« wav Sister Rose demanded of the Board of Health the summary dismissal of the overseer. board was m the midst of an investigation of her charges when she complained to the Legislature. The only counter charge made by Charlie is said to be that the sister threatened that if patients did not testify against him she and the doctor would leave the place, which would break up the institution and necessitate that they all go to dreaded Molokai Not Ready to Take the Pled re. Omaha Bee: A reconstructed member of the Mississippi Constitutional Convention ruptured tne peacerm plans or tne uourbons by .introducing the following amendment to the bill of rijrhta "This State shall aver remain a member of the American Union and the people thereof a part < the American Nation, and all attemntt to dissoli the said Union shall be resisted with the whole power of the state." Of course the propositi was promptly shelved, but the mere suggestic that Mississippi should proclaim itself insepar bly wedded to the Union brought out a sufflciei number of Brigadiers to crash the vnniw nntrir Doubtless his life was spared on giving bond for l - TOo POISONS in<m FREEMAN'S Face Powder.
