Many Important Subjoct.g Considered During the Twenty-six Days S'esslon—The Question of Women Dnlegatea Referred to the Annual Conferences. OMAHA, Neb., May 2(5.— The general conference of the Methodist Episcopal church came to an end at 2:20 p. m., after a session of twenty-six days. In that time much legislation has been cleared away and on a whole the work of the conference has been productive of much good. The most important questions considered during this session were the report of the constitutional -committee on the revision of the constitution and discipline. After four days this important matter was indefinitely postponed and as no commission or committee was appointed before adjournment, nothing will be done toward revising the laws of the church before the next general conference in 1896. The next important question which, by the way, was settled as far as the general conference is concerned, was equal representation of lay and ministerial delegates. The next important step was the women's question which after a hard fight resulted in a slight victory for the ladies. A resolution requiring that in order to constitutionally settle the matter a proposition be referred to the annual conferences whereby the words "who shall be men only" shall follow the words "lay delegates," wherever they appear in the plan of lay delegates. In order to intercept the words in that manner, three- fourths of the annual conferences must so vote and if they so vote then the two- thirds of the next general conference must concur in that interpretation. It will thus be seen that the women who control a majority of the conferences will win the day in the next general conference, although they will not be able to be seated until eight years hence. , The refusal to increase the number of bishops or to locate a residence iii Europe and Japan, were other features of importance. The proposed change in the discipline relating to amusements died, failing to be brought before the conference, as also did the resolution of Dr. Hanlon asking the church to put itself OH record in reference to its position in $he controversy between capital and labor. Despite the assertion of the bishops that the church has no place in politics, the conference adopted the report of the committee on temperance, which pledged to support all organizations banded together to suppress the liquor traffic and which was implied to mean an indorsement of the Prohibition party. Later on a resolution declaring that the conference did not construe its adoption of the report to bind it to any political party passed without dissent. The church put itself on record as favoring the world's fair and favoring ample appropriations only on conditions that the gates should be closed on Sunday and that no intoxicating liquors be sold on the grounds. It further appointed a commission to determine the advisability of participating in a general religious exhibit and to engage-in one if found practicable. The Epworth league was made a constitutional part of the church and is now the only recognized society of young people in the church. A series of resolutions denouncing the Chinese exclusion law and calling upon congress to amend it by striking out the addition to the laws of 1882 was adopted. Committee on boundaries located the boundaries of the general conference districts making the Georgia and Philadelphia districts square, removing the gerrymander of years ago.

PORTLAND, Or., May 39.—The week and the Briggs case have ended together BO far as the general assembly is concerned. By a vote which under the law of the church is to be reckoned as 429 to 87 the appeal against the action of the presbytery of New York in dismissing the case has been sustained in whole or in part. The papers in the case will be sent back to the presbytery, and it wil be ordered to proceed with the tria which it voted to discontinue. Two indictments for murder in the first degree have been returned by the grand jury at CornJng against James Dooley, the murderer of his aunt and cousin Mrs. and Miss Coons. At Dubuque the jury in the case of Charles Lee, charged with participation in the murder of a street car driver last November, returned a verdict of murder in the second degree. Lee is only 17 years old. Rev. W. M. Baird, of Burlington, while returning on the train from a visit with relatives in St. Louis, was taken suddenly with paralysis. Upon arriving at Burlington he was conveyed to his home and died soon after. About eighty warrants for the arrest of business men for non-compliance with the Sunday law were sworn out at Oskaloosa, and many arrests have been made. The saloon element is the instigator, and the cases will be fought to a finish. The twentyrthird annual convention of the Hahneinann Medical Association of lowa-r-the state homeopathic society was held last week at Iowa City, about seventy-five prominent physicians from all parts of the state being present. The 14-year-old son of Policeman Fitzpatrick, employed in the Lesure Lumber company's mill at Dubuque, attempted to climb over a saw, and in doing so caught his foot on it and in an instant it was almost severed, necessitating amputation. The Republican state central committee has decided to hold the convention for nomination of state officers in Des Moines June 29. R. B. Huff, of Muscatine, will be temporary chairman, and A. L. Hager, of Greenfield, permanent chairman. Two boys named Luther and Goodrich accidentally sat fire to a barn at Guttenberg. Mrs. Luther attempted to rescue them but failed, and Luther and she were burned to a crisp. The Goodrich boy was taken from the fire, badly burned, but may recover. Governor Boies has pardoned Dr. W. F. S. Murdy, who was brought to the^ penitentiary in February, 1890, to serve a ten years' sentence. The crime for which the doctor was doing penance was the killing of Silas Tipton, a butcher, in a quarrel at Moultou, Appanoose county. Twenty-six of the ninety-six members of the German Methodist church at Dubuque, with the pastor, Rev. Pfeiffer, have withdrawn and formed an independent church. They say they want to be able to drink beer, dance and play cards occasionally without offending the church discipline.
