tained exactly how muck eaoh smator In worth, 

id whether the fact that he ia not a pauper haa 
nything to do with his votes. 
Mr Dubola (rep, Idaho) offered tho follow- 
itf resolution on which he said he would ad- 
ress the senate to-morrow 

WHXBXAB, Several sovereign states are 

without full representation In the senate to 
which they are entitled; therefore be It 

HwhHd, That the consideration of legiela- 
lon relating to the federal eleetlon laws, the 
artff ana Bnanolal matters, which materially 
fleet the partially unrepresented states, be 
oatponed In the senate until Monday, Jan- 
ary 16, i»04, to enable the state* of Washlng-- 
on, Montana and Wyomlac to have the votes, 
nfluonce and protection in the senate which 
re guaranteed to every sovereign state by tho 
onslituUon of tbe United States 
The resolution offered yoflterday by Mr. Pet- 
er, calling for information as to the antlolpa- 
on of Interest on tho public bonds since 1861, 

was laid before the eeuat*, and Mr. Shenaan 
poke against it as causing a great deal of un- 
eoeiiary labor and «ipen» to the depart- 
lent The senator could find all the luforma 
.on he wanted In public documents 
To a question by Mr Teller Mr. Sherman ro- 
lled that tbe anticipation ot interest had 
ocen authorized by law, and was not a mere 
mttor of custom 
After further discussion the resolution, on 
lotion of Mr Quay, was laid oil the table 
"OILS, £T, nays, ID 
At 1 10 p m the repeal bill was, on motion 
f Mr VoorUeea, taken up There was some 
uestlon as to what had become ot Mr Stew- 
rt's resolution on which he spoke yesterday 
ndthe presiding officer (Mr Harris) ruled 
hat on objection yesterday by Mr Wash- 
urne, tho resolution had gone to the calendar

hat tho objection would not prevent him re-

emarks Mr Quay, however, Indicated an 
Ejection to gHlmr Mr Stewart an opportunity 
0 open his attack on the president'of the 
'lilted States 
"1 waa discussing the conduct of the presl- 
ent," was Mr. Stewart's amendment of Mr 
uay'a pbrase 
Tho question of the right of a senator to 
arm out the floor in that way was raised by 
Mr Faulkner, and the chair ruled In that 
A colloquy on this point was carried on for 
ome time, and was finally interrupted by the 
residing officer, who declared that It was out 
1 order and that he was perfectly satisfied 
with the answer he had given to Mr. Faulkner

?as full and clear, and his speech attracted at- 
Mr Perkins closed his speech at 1 80 and 
as congratulated upon the success of his 
abut Tben Mr Stewart resumed the floor. 
After the senator had spoken some time, at 
iis request, Mr Mitchell read an article from 
San Francisco paper 
When the reading 

&B finished Mr Palmer *aaked whether it waa 
onslatent with the proper relations that 
" lould exlat between the president and the 
nate thus to have charges against the execu- 
ve read In the senate 
Mr Stewart replied that It was consistent 
or him as a senator to defend the senate 
against what the press regarded aa "a rebuke" 
administered to It by the president "Let his 
rlends." he added angrily, "deny that he haa 
elicited patronage to control the senate; let 
lem deny that he has attempted to control 
egislatlon, let them make It clear to the 
ountry that patronage has not been given to 
hose who supported hla measures. Let them 
iake It clear to the country bow the sentiment 
t congress has been changtd Let them 
iake It clear how the overwhelming majority 
blob had been claimed herein favor ot free 
olnage has been changed Into a monometallic 
Let them maUo It clear that patron- 

age haa been given to all democrats, without 

igard to their position on the ailver question 
'hose charges have become too common, and, 

they are uot true they should be denied." 
Mr Palmer (In marked contrast of manner 
oMr Stewart'a)—" Will the senator himself 
Ddlcate a single instance In which the presl- 
ent has employed his putronago to control a 
enator or mombor of the house'' 

my dear sir," Mr Stewart exclaimed, 

these things are charged every day In the 
ubhc press uml let you deny thorn If you 
m " 
"Deny what? 
"Deny that patronage was given to those who 
re supporting the administration measure." 
' If the senator himself," Mr Palmer quietly 
erslsted, "will, on his own responsibility as a 
enaior, make a charge of that kind, I will con- 
oss It or I will deny U But the Idea that the 
rlends of the president or the president him- 
ilf should formally deny all these charges 
gainst him in the newspapers is absurd. 

would bo the value of denial? I am call 

ng attention to the strange attitude whlob the 
enator occupies In repealing on this floor 
barges against the president for which tho 
enator himself will not be responsible " 
Mr Stewart broke in "I will answer These 
barges have been rande in the public press 
They have been made In the administrative or- 

ana, which have also made the demand that 
he senate >tiuaU vote tlrst and debate after- 
It Is claimed In these papers that the 

power of the administration haa been used to 
uasb this bill, and. we see before us the re 

We soe what was a democratic majority 

or free coinage malt away I have not sped 
led particulars I speak of grand roaultt And 
et any man deny that the power of patronage 
baa been abused Let ua (he exclaimed, aa if a 
udden Inspiration had cvme upon him) have e 
ull investigation " 

Will the senator," Mr Palmer again asked, 

'kindly namo a single senator whom ha knows 

boll«vea to have been Influenced by the 
avors of tho president?" 

'Too senator from Illinois desires to make 
personal matter of it 
Oh, pshaw [Laugh 
"If I believed," said Mr. Palmer, "what tu« 

senator asserts, 1 would give the names of the 
senators Implicated " 

"Will the senator." Mr Stewart asked, "rote 
or a resolution giving to a committee' the 
power to Investigate*" 

'I will," Mr. Palmer replied, "whenever the 
senator himself, in hla place, makes a chargi 
against any senator or any member of tho 
house of representatives " 

"I do not want to confine the investigation to 
one. I want to take In all " 

"Whenever the senator bring* Information 
or charge agatnat any Individual In the«ena,te 
X will vote for an Investigation " 

But Mr Stowart would not name the man, 
and the colloquy oohtlnned until he beearae an 

"I decline to he Interrupted," he a& 

each questions. I wilt not make personal 
eaanes, because the air Is full ot them." 
"Yes, they are very windy They are op 

mttoh so they blow down upon a good many 
senators and members " [Laughter.] 

Then Mr Stewart went back to hla newspa- 
per extracts After that he put Into requisi- 
tion a speech from Mr. Webster during tbe 
Jackson administration, and a report from Cal- 
hounon executive patronage in 1835. 

Mr Stewart yielded the floor, but without 

concluding all that he had to say. 

Mr Morgan rose to a personal explanation 

Alluding to the article from a New York paper 
which had been read in the senate Imputing to 
himself personal and political enmity to Mr 
Cleveland, he saf d. 

"I am very happy to state that between tbe 
President and myself there exist tbe most 
cordial personal relations They have always 
existed and I hope they ever will, for I esteem 
and prlzo him very highly in all personal re 
apeots and in his public career I think that 
the history of Mr Cleveland is a history which 
illustrates some of the higher properties of the 
American character. I differ with Mr Cleve- 
land in some of his views of public polity. 
I do not think that I differ with him on any 
questions that are vital to the country 
or vital 
to the 


which we have always so happily agreed we 
maydiJTer I may differ on measures of pol- 
icy, but only on measures of policy 
In fact, I 

doubt very much whether the differences be 
tween the president and myself arc of any 
very Important character, if I understand what 
are really hla opinions and his hopes in rela- 
tion to the present Imbroglio In which we are 
involved " 

With this statement Mr Morgan said he felt 

just!tied in saying that lu this particular arti- 
cle the paper played the part simply of mis- 
chief maker 
Its ntatements were simply and 

maliciously false 

Mr Voorhaes had also something to say in 

relation to the president He was very glad to 
hear the remarks of the senator from Ala- 
bama in regard to the assault which had been 
made upon the president in the last two days 
He desired to account for the attitude of sl- 
lonot observed on tbe democratic side ot the 
chamber In the face of assault 
It was that it 

had not been thought necessary to say a 
single word In defense of Mr 

the time 
he was 
born in New 

Jersey up 
to tbe 

hla Bide of the chamber and, he tiad reason to 
believe, on the other aide of the chamber, and 
all over the country Mr Cleveland's defense 
had been fully made by the Am erlcan people 
themselves His gnat and powerful career 
disarmed all such aisaults as had been made 
upon him 
Whatever the fault the senator 

from Nevada mi^ht have found in Mr Cleve- 
land's career the people had not seen It in 
tbat way. Whatever of criticism the senator 
of Nevada might have Indulged in the American 
people had not shared that criticism with him 
Nobody was perfect 
Human nature waa In- 

firm, The loftiest of characters were not ta- 
fallablo. But he ventured to aay that in 
American history Grovar Cleveland, his char 
acter bis achievements, hli honor, his patri- 
otism and his abilities would stand in the tore- 
most lino of all the assaults which had been 
mado Whether senators differed from Mr 
him, no- 



high integrity He hoped that this little trlb 
ute would be taken an sufficient to account for 
the fact that the democratic side of the cham- 
ber would not feel called upon to enter upon 
any defense of the president unless something 
far more Important was charged against him 
thtfn had been charged up to this time 

The senate, and 6 p m after a short uxecu 

tlvo session, adjourned until to morrow at 11 
a m 


On motion of Mr Grosvenor, a joint resolu- 

tion was passed authorizing the commission 
ers of tho Chattanooga National park to use 
atone and gravel on the grounds for tho pur- 
pose of making foundations for monuments 

Mr Smith asked for the consideration of a 

resolution providing for tho printing ot the 
bearings held by tho committee on ways and 

At the suggestion of Mr Wilson the resolu- 

tion went over until to morrow. 

Mr Talbott asked consent for the immediate 

consideration of a resolution requesting tho 
committee on banking and currency, after tho 
disposal of the federal election repeal bill, to 
report the McLauren bill 

Mr Warner objected 
In the aecond morning hour (tho first being 

unproductive of results) Mr Talbott moved 
that the house go Into committee ot the whole 
for the consideration of the bill to remit the 
penalties on tho designers ot the Vesuvius, but 
by consent the bill was la Id over until the llth 
of October 
The house then, in accordance 

with the special order, proceeded to the con 
aide rat ton of the Federal eloattons repeal law 
and was addressed by Mr Tucker, who opened 
tbe debate 

Mr. Bros!us (rep, Pa.) congratulated the 

gentleman from Virginia on his able speech, 
and he desired to emulate hie example in one 
particular He would be glad to discuss the 
measure from a nonpartisan point of view 

He believed that underneath tho flowing 

stream of our politics there was a patriotism 
and to that patriotism he appealed to-day He 
then spoke against the proposed repeal.

BERLIN, Sept. 37.—Herr Alois, an 

artist who is a close friend ot the Bis- 
marck family, arrived here from Kls- 
singen last evening. lie gives an un-

prince's condition. The most formid-

though convalescing, he is very weak

must prove fatal

Emperor William took his special

with Emperor Francis Joseph. He 
bade the Austrian emperor a cordial

Count Lohandorf, the emperor's ad- < 

jutant, returned yesterday from Kis- 
smgen, where he was trying to arrange 
for an interview between the emperor 
and llibmarck in the near future. Bis-

Last evening it was possible, for the 

first time, to obtain the text of Em- 
peror William's telegraphic correspond- 
ence with Prince Itism.irck 

Quens the emperor sent on September 
19 the following message 1 o Kissmpren 
"I have, to my great reg'-et, only just 
learned that your highness has gone re- 
cently through a somewhat serious ill- 
ness. At the same time I have received 
the news, thank God, that you are 
now making steady progress toward 
recovery. I, therefore, beg to express 
to you my great satisfaction with this 
encouraging development 
Being anx- 

ious to asbist in thoroughly completing 
your recovery and establishing your 
health, I beg your highness, in view of 
the unfavorable climate and location 
of Friederichsruhe, as well as Varsin, 
to take up your quarters for the winter 
in one of my castles in central Ger 
many. Afer conferring with my court 
marshal I shall communicate to your 
highness the name of the castle which 
will be most suitable to your pur- 

.Prince Ititmarck 

Prince Bismarck's reply to this di»- 

pateh was1 

"With the deepest respect I thank 

your majesty for the precious expres- 
sion of your sympathy in my illness 
and your satisfaction with the more 
recent improvement of my health 

thank your majesty no lees for , your 
gracious desire to assist in furthering 
my recovery by providing for me a 
residence under the mo^t favorable 
climatic conditions. 
My respectful 

gratitude for your majesty's gracious 
intent is in no way diminished by 
the conviction that 
it be 

will that I remain in my 

health, my recovery would be quicker 
in my family circle and in the sur- 
roundings to which I have now been 
so long accustomed. My complaint be- 
ing of a nervous nature, I share the 
opinion of my doctor* that if I spend 
the winter in my present surroundings 
and occupations my mode of lif« will 
be the most likely means of promoting 
I agree -with my doctor 

also in the opinion that the disturb- 
ance of my nervous system, which 
might result from a sojourn in strange 
surroundings and new associations 
such as would be designed as your

There Is No Need 

Of reminding you of the depression 
in trade You are well aware of that. 
But in this connection we wish to 
remind you of this fact, that in times 
like these CASH is an important fac- 
tor. Orders placed early by mer- 
chants for fall merchandise were 
almost universally countermanded. 
This threw enormous stocks on title 
manufacturers' hands, of which they 
had to dispose of at a great sacrifice 
for rea.dy CASH. We had the CASH 
and bought later, and as a result we 
own our Fall and Winter stock fully 
35 to 40 per cent, cheaper than il 
we had been forced to purchase on 
time. No further argument is needed 
to convince you that, buying cheap, 
we can also sell you cheap. 

Our Fall and 
Winter Stock 

is now in, and we cordially invite 
your inspection of it, and feel cer- 
tain that we can convince you of tile 
truth of the above.

IB overriding the laws ot tbe country. 
He declared there was no authority in

Train robbers have recently been hav- 

ing eome trouble. They have ran against 
some people who are disposed to dispute 
their right to hold up a train and rob it 
without encountering any resistance. 
Th* result is that eome of those masked 
American ottizsna have been sent to a 
country where, according to the beet it 
formation at hand, the valuable things 
ot the realm are not shipped from point 
to point, and where each people do not 
carry into effect the maxim of tbe loafer, 
that "the world owes him a living," 
which involves bis right to get it m any 
way he may see fit. 

Some pays ago, n«ar Oautralia, when 

an attempt was made by these bluffers 
to rob a train, the employes ot the Illi- 
nois Central railway who were in charge 
of th* train, jumped on the robbers with 
a shotgun and some convenient iron 
bars, after the fireman and'engineer bad 
been severely wounded by the outlaws, 
and shot and beat the knights of the 
road until they captured all of them but 
on*. They did not rob that train; bat, 
instead, they went to jail, Where they 
tumbled over each other to confess their 
guilt and gin the name* ot all connected 
with th* robbery. 

Near St. Joe, Ho., last Monday monr 

ing.anothar gang boarded a train, with 
th* vtow of robbing the express ear. 
That Kate was loaded, not, however, by 
a set of men that had any intention to 
see the robbers perform on • safe with 
dynamlt*. or on the express messenger 
and their men with revolvers and Win- 
chesters. The shoe w*» on the other foot; 
and tbe robber* were shot down, as they 
deserved to b*, Uk* dog*; *nd those who 
were not killed were eaptmnd 

ThJ* Is tbe Had ot eiperione* that will 

cans* tbe*e bandits to think. It is Ihe 

with which tt»y pro»ose to deaorst* the 
six men who prevented th* intended 
Ontrelifi robbery, and in addition to th* 
medals, have given these nun 12,000 m 

Tbe recipient* an A Odim, cot- 

doctor; Ben Xonng, engineer; fid. Mc- 
Dowell, firemen; Felix Armstrong, bag- 
gageman; 0. D. Boyle, express messenger, 
and F. J. Sanders. Ihis is business.

The scientific branch of cookery 

comprises the devising: of dishes and 
sauces. The artistic branch consti- 
tutes the art of garnishing-, and this 
play SB most important part in the out- 
come of the kitchen, aa, by means of 
it, dishes please the eve before the; 
please the palate. First impressions 
go a great way, and when one sense Is 
captivated by an agreeable and invit- 
ing appearance the dish must be bad, 
indeed, which fails to stand the more 
searching ordeal of taste. Besides, 
people who suffer from jaded appetite 
have a better chance of eating their 
dinner when the dishes which are pot 
before them are pleasant to the sight 

Art, however, is not a thing to be 
taught. Yon may show a man how to 
mix colors, but you cannot teach him 
how to use them. I will only attempt 
to explain that what in cookery U 
meant by garnishing is not the tradi- 
tional parseley of the cook, and I will 
describe what cooks, properly so called, 
mean by garnishing, of what garnishes 
are made and how the different materi- 
als are prepared for the purpose. The 
conditions of these things are too in- 
finite to allow of more than a general 
exposition. They wholly depend on 
the talent, skill and taste of the opera- 
tor. The one and a great thing to avoid 
as much as possible is the using for 
purposes at garnishing things which 
are not eatable. 

"Garniture," which, is rendered into 

English by "garnish," may be defined 
as all that is added to the chief ma- 
terial, which constitutes the dish. 
Thus tomato sauce in a dish of cutlets 
or fried potatoes around a steak are 
(rarnlshes. These things fall naturally 
under two great heads—the hot gar- 
nishes, which accompany every savory 
dish, and the cold garnishes, which go 
with cold meats, salads, etc. Vegeta- 
bles are the chief material of hot 
garnishes. By judicious combinations 
they will produce very pretty effect of 
color. For instanoo7 turnips, potatoes, 
artichokes, cauliflowers, celery and 
vegetable marrows will give whites;

\Vlttful Ixinglnj of tue Mlddle-Aied 
Matron In a Hmpltal Cot. 

The women who carry to hospitals 

the flowers collected by the different 
"flower missions*' are greeted, as a 
rule, with gratitude warmly expressed. 
Their posies are welcome, whether 
Haunting Eudbeckias from the fields 
or the rarest of sweet peas from the 
garden. Probably poor little Peggy, 
the flower girl in the poem, was the 
only human being wlio over was "sick 
of the smell of roses." 

An enthusiastic flower missioncr 

from Evanston once met with indiffer- 
ence to her nosegays, but it was only 
momentary. The middle-aged woman 
In one hospital cot turned her head 
away from the basket. 

"Don't you care for a flower?" Bhe 

was asked. 

"I dun no. What you got?" This in 

ullest of tones. 

"Why here are roses, and daisies, and 

pinks and heliotrope " 

HsYve you got some 

heliotrope9 Let me see a piece of that, 
will you?" 

The Evanstonian w ar, touched 

fancy quickly wove a Btory or two 
about the life of this commonplace 
matron. Perhaps, long ago, there had 
been heliotrope growing in the garden 
where she had been wooed when more 
wooable Perhaps a little child, now 
dead, had loved the scent of heliotrope. 

She put a big spray in the coarse 

'hand. "Ah!" said tbe heroine of her 
'imaginings, "I've wanted to see some 
•'heliotrope for ever so long. They say 
'it's such a fashionable color." — Chicago 

Spider* Eat Their Mothers. 

One of the most unnatural things in 

nature, if the expression is allowable, 
is the manner in which the young of 
the common wolf spider, found every- 
where in this country, treat their 
mother. After the little creature has 
laid her eggs she envelopes them in a 
silken covering, BO as to make a ball 
about the size of a pea, and this she 
carries about with her wherever she 
goes, and will defend it with her life. 
When the young are hatched, they 
climb on her back, giving her a mon- 
strous appearance, and ride about 
until nearly half grown, and as soon 
as they discover their strength they 
fall to and devour their mother. As a 
rule the maternal relation is recog- 
nized in the animal and insect world 
only as lone as the necessity for pro- 
tection exists, but instances of the 
young actually devouring a parent by 
main force and common consent are 
extremely rare.— London Nature.

Messrs. Barnabee, Karl and McDonald 

have found the Bostomona in snob de- 
mand in New York, Boston, Philadelphia 
and Chicago that they now, of necessity, 
confine their engagements to those cities. 
However, the demand for the highly snc- 
osssfnl operas which they control is so 
greet that they last season organized a 
high-class company for the presentation 
of their greatest successes in those cities 
which the Bostonians could not hope to 
reach. This is the Bobin Hood Opera 
company, which is soon to appear in our 
city, and which this season presents the 
glorious opera comiqae, "Bobin Hood," 
and its companion piece, "The Knicker- 
bockers," both by DeKoven and Smith. 
The company is as nearly the equal ot 
tha Bostonians as Barnabas, Karl and 
McDonald can make it, and it is unques- 
tionable that they possess not only the 
artistic ability to select superior singers 
bat the capital wherewith to command 
their services. 


Oar regular fall line of imported and 

domestic clothe for oar tailoring depart- 
ment is uow on onr counters, and we can 
safely say that it is larger, more varied 
and assorted than any in the city. We 
have made a great effort to make oar 
tailoring department the leading one ot 
its kind m Deoatnr, turning oat the most 
elegant and 
fashionable tailor-nude 

Nothing in the city at very reasonable 
prices. 'Onr new cntter, Mr. Wald, in 
charge ot this department, can be de- 
pended upon to pie BED and give the best 
of satisfaction. We can assure the trade 
that we were never in a better position 
to render perfect satisfaction than now 
and we extend a general invitation to the 
trade to call. EHHM«N & Co., sole agents

Bey O A. Crane, of DMWlUo, Ar- 

rests the Character ot Bev. 

James Miller—The Prob- 

able Outcome. 

As before stated by the B»POBLIOAB, 

Bev. James Miller, former pastor ot the 
First H. E. ohuroh ot this city, wae, dur- 
ing tbe last oonferenoe year transferred 
from this to tbe Book Biver oonferenoe, 
and for reasons which have also been 
etated in these columns at the oonfer- 
enoe in Clinton, which has just adjourned. 
Mr. Miller applied for reedmi»ion to 
this conference. 
Bishop Fowler, who 

presided, decided to make tha transfer. 
Tbe rules governing the transfer ot 
minister from one oonferenoe to another 
are briefly and substantially that a min- 
ister whose character baa not been ar- 
rested and who ia not under charges, and 
when the oonferenoe to which he be- 
longs is held at a later date, than the 
oonferenoe to which he desire* to be 
tranfferred, and when the conference 
from which he desires to be transferred 
is presided over by another bishop he 
makes his application, and it there ie 
room for him in the conference, and it be 
is a desirable preacher, the presiding 
bishop informally receives him and as- 
signs him to work, and following this the 
presiding bishop in the oonferenoe, to 
which he legally belongs, gives bis cot- 
sent. In case tbe same bishop presides 
at both conferences, ot course tbe matter 
is altogether ia the hands of a single 
bishop. In oaads where charges have 
been preferred against a preacher in tbn 
conference to which he belongs, the 
bishop cannot consent to the transfer 
until anon minister ie triad and acquitted. 
In oases where tha oonferenoe from 
whioti n minister daeirea to be trans- 
ferred meets before the one to which be 
wishes to be transferred, the bishop pro 
Biding grants tbe transfer first, end tbe 
bishop presiding at the later conference 
concurs in the transfer. 

In the case ot Bev. James Miller the 

conference from which he desired to be 
transferred m ots lot r than the one to 
which he desired to be transferred, and, 
before stated, Bishop Fowler granted the 
transfer, end at the request of the entire 
official board ot tbe Bloomirgton Grace 
M. K. church, assigned him to that 

Upon discovering this, Eev. Charles A 

Grane, of Danville, who evidently did 
not desire the readmiseion ot Mr. Miller 
to this conference on such conditions, 
just before the bishop roes to read the 
appointments went to tbat official on the 
platform and whispered to him that he 
had arrested the character of Bev. James 
Miller, in the Book Biver conference, 
having filed charges against him. This 
waa evidently done to block the transfer. 
But the bishop was equal to this parlia- 
mentary emergency, and taking his list 
wrote, "Grace IU. K. church, Blooming- 
ton, to be supplied," and calling tbe prt- 
siding elder of tbat district instructed 
him to supply Grace church with Bev. 
James Miller, and thus he becomes tbe 
pastor of tbat onnrob, and will continue 
in tbat relation to the charge nnleus ho 
IB funnd guilty of tbe charges filed 
by Sit. Crane when he ia put oa trial ut 
the Eoeeiua of the Book Biver oonferenoe 
in October. 

Thm paper cannot undertake to eay 

positively what motives Mr. Orane may 
have had in the coarse he has pursued in 
tbie matter, but Ins aotion in doing what 
be did, at the timo be did it, upon its 
face, is not creditable to Mr. Crane. The 
only reasonable conclusion that osn be 
ranched IP, tbat, baa the I ishop decided 
not to transfer Mr. Miller, Mr. Crane 
would not have gone to the trouble, from 
purely moral grounds, to prefer charges

had nmpie time to do tuie had snob mo- 
tives prompted him without resorting to 
the telegraph and waiting to notify tbo 
biahop of his aotion nutil the very last 
last moment.

Sa long as suoli a pro

to prefer charge;. It was not until

signed to one of tbe best charges in tbe 
conference that his character became

who fsel themselves moved to criticise

logian who baara acquaintance mighty 


every day lite believes that these charge 
have re'erenoe to his moral character, as 
no man bears a higher character than he 
It is fairly well known that he ie charge 
with heterodoxy; that is to say that he 
does not preach the doctrines of tb 

iptvreas laid do»a in the discipline 

of the Methodist ouuroh, and that ex 
tracts from too eeriea of sermons he 
preached in Daoutnr and which were 
published m the BBPuouoinatthetime 
will be uied to substantiate the charges. 
It is well known, that at tbe time these 
sermons were preached, they were widelj 
distributed among Methodist ministers 
in this oon'erenoe, and their orthodox] 
was not attacked. It is known also thai 
since they were preached and published 
and became public property, Bav. James 
Miller wsa made a presiding eldsr in the 
conference, without question as to his 
orthodoxy SB shown by those sermons. 
Sorely if ha violated the faith of tbe 
ohuroh in any of them, that offense was 
condoned in his elsvation to the pre- 
siding eldsrship. and also in his conse- 
quent transfer to Bock Bivar oonferenoe, 
and all comers ore debarred from raising 

ny question baaed upon them, now. 
' These sermons were preached to Meth- 
odist* who are well acquainted with the 

ootrinea ot the church, and no one, so

news which came to-day of the appoint- 
ment of Dr. Wllcox, of SpnnRfield, ae 
Collector for tha Eighth Revenue Dit- 
triot, was a disappointment to ail m

expected tbat Owen Scott of this city 
would pluck the plum, and Republicans 
uo If m than Democrats hupej ho would. 
Mr. Huott said to-night: 

Yes, I am disappointed in the senna 

that i ktilika to meet defeat, but I nm 
glad the matter is settled. I have never 
talked with the president ID regard to 
the offio*, but relied wholly on Senator

impossible to appoint either Mr. Hiekox
