Tbo Fire Insurance Patroltuem, to tbe number of twenty-five, were on guard In the lumber district last night, at tho Instance of the Underwriters, and will remain until the danger is over. A force of policemen wore also on duty. Borne uf tbo strikers were parlicuhry vicious toward Bergt.

Special DltpaUh to The Chicago Tribune. Washington, D. C,. May B. Miss Sweet, tbe Chicago Pension Agent, testified this forenoon before tbe Civil Sorvico Com mittee. Tbo following is a condonaed abstract of bor testimony; Bbo was appointed April 1,1874, and in March, 1871. ap plied for tbo position, Blakely was thou Pen sion Agent. Ho told bor bo was certain bo could keep tbe place until tbo expiration of bio com mission, April 1, 1875. Be discouraged bor from making any effort, as there would bo no vacancy until bo resigned. Blakely said bo would be glad to resign if bo could got out of debt; that ho bad boon a failure in Chicago, and wanted to got away soon. Afterward Blukoly informed bor bo would resign if their friends would combine for an appointment, and upon tbo condition that until the expiration of his term of office for tbo full year ebo should give him oil tbo money oamod above expenses, saving a salary for bor self of $1,500. SUE AGREED TO HlB PROPOSITION. Blakely sold Instead of making these payments to blm direct bo wished that she should make them through a third party to whom ho ■was In dobt. This was Benjamin H. Campbell, who bud loaned him money without se curity. Blakely considered that a dobt of honor that must be paid, whether anybody else was paid or not. She consented. Blakely said be had seen Campbell; that Oatnbbsll wished to see bor; that Campbell want ed to know whether she assumed this indebtedness. She saw Campbell and agreed to pay SOOO in April, 1874, and £360 on tbe lOtn of June, August, October, and December. 1074, and February and April, 1876. re spectively. The gross amount was $3,100, Blakely came to Washington, and Campbell came to her office April 10 and received SIOO and continued to receive each payment at tbo times abovo stated. At the expiration of tbia period, April 10, IBIS, Campbell claimed that a larger amount was still due him from her. Sbo told Oamobell tbat their bualneaa relations had then eoaaed, arid that ebe bad no more payments to malce him, Campbell bad a different understanding, lie said bo bad Blakely's note for $5,000, lie understood Blakely tbat she assumed all of It. Hbe wished Campbell to understand tbat abe stood by her agreement. Both wrote to Blukoly. Miss Sweet pro duced a copy of her totter, dated April 10, tbo same date of tbe payment, addressed to Blakely at St. Paul. The letter recited summarily Miss Sweet's understand ing with Blakely. In a week Campbell told her that be bad hoard from Blakely, and Meantime, she came to Washington and saw tbe President. Did not jell tho President tho details. She heard threats of her removal, and came to see about It. Told tho President she wanted to bo heard before removal. On Jan. U, 1870, she, however, did tell tho President that she had boon paying money. The ' President said he would consider further payments by her ground for her removal. When the bargain was made Blakely sold it must be kept entirely secret. Shu told no one until April, lt>7s, when she Informed J. F. Clailtn and Juslab Lombard, one of her bondsmen, lu addition to this payment of $l,lOO to Campbell on Blakely’s account, sbo bocamo responsible on Blakely's account yon £3,200 additional. Blakely received an order to turn tho office over to her April I. lie was not ready. It took a month for him to mako up his accounts. About May 1 he ren dered bis account, showing in round numbers S4U,OOJ duo. Ho was $3,000 short. Ho induced Miss Bwcot, however, to give him a receipt in full for tho SIO,OOO, and to carry tho $3,000 for a week; by that time he could mako it good. She did so at tho very pressing solicitation of Blakely. Blakely said that bo was a ruined man. He said bo could not raise tbe money; did not have It. BLAKELY DBEAKS DOWN. Miss Sweet said: •• Blakely presented a very pitia ble appearance, and at that time 1 supposed I was un der some obligations to him, aud was willing and anx ious to do anything 1 could for him. I thought ho had been the beat friend 1 bad. Was very sorry. Ho said the matter would come out and he would be ruined: said If ho could have a few weeks hu could raise th< money; had property bo could sell." Tins wts lu Mur. Ho was certain bo could raise the money by the middle of June. July came; Blakely had not kept faith. Bite was herself a defaulter for $3,000. Thu books show it plainly, flho kept writing fur the money. Ho failed to send It. In October Deputy Commissioner Locker examined tbe books at Chicago, and discovered the deficit. Bho felt compelled to ex plain the circumstances. Blakely meanwhile passed through Chicago to Vermont VTITUOUT HECINd DEB. Bbe discovered his Vermont addroea and telegraphed him; told him tho Commissioner, as eho understood, hadaunt Looker to make examloatlou. Blakely tele graphed hack that eha ahoutd give herself uo anxiety , that the Commlaalouer of I'ciislons, Gen, James 11. Baker, knew all about It, and there would ho no examination. Looker, It appears. In the course of atrip, made the examination on Ida own account without Baker's knowledge. When Lockoy returned to Chicago from a trip further weal, he received a tel<y jtrauWrom the Commlaalouer of I’cualoaa telling “LET TUB OltlOJtQO OFFICE ALONE}" that ha (Baker) would look after It blmaolf. Bhe told Locker all the facta. aa ahe waa not willing that bo ehould think that ahe waa bonelf a defaulter. ' Bho told him aha had property enough to maae up the deficiency; that her boudamen were Joed, and that her life was Insured or the benefit of the Govurumeat. Bho then wrote Gen. Baker, asking him to eomvel Blakely to make Ida deficit good. Neither Uaker nor Blakely replied. Both went through Chicago, however, on their way to the November olecltona In Minnesota. Subsequently one morning Oca. Baker and Blakuly both appeared in her office. Uaker aald that the SI,OOO muil be paid that day, aa bo bad to leave for Washington that night. Bhe told him that ahe could not raise the money, and that It was ulak Ely's deficiency, mot uens. Gen. Baker aald It made no difference; that she bad assumed the amount and was rcspouslhlo for It. Blakely saked her bow much she could raise. She said $3,000. Blakely said U ahe could raise $3,000 Commissioner Baker would be willing to have nor carry the deficiency. Blakuly bad a note for $3,000 which be would give Baker as security to (he United Utates for carrying this deficiency. Bhe said Blakely should give the nolo to her. Blakely did so. Bhe In dorsed it, and got it discounted. Gen. Baker aud UUkely went the Bub-Treasury end deposited the amount to her credit. That waa the last mouey aha ever paid. Thu only deficiency 1* her account arose from tho fact that ahe was compiled to assuma the deficiency of Blakely. Of (hie SI,OOO Blakely, up to this time, has paid $3,000, leas the Inter est. Blakely, at the time ha deaired her to assume the default. UEFDSED TO PEBBIT UEB TO INFORM HEtt FRIENDS of the circamalsucea. Bho only consented, when hu aald be could not otherwise raise ths money, Hhv told the executor of the estate, O, Gary, of whom ahe got the money, and ah* was obliged to lull him In order to get the money. Mist Bweet submitted receipts from Campbell for tho apeciflo sums mentioned, which ag gregated $3,100. The receipts were all in the form of the first one, of winch the following is a eopy: “ Cuuuoo, April I,l474.—Deceived of David Blake ly by the band of Mlaa Bweet, S4OO. “(Signed) B. 11.

May B. —Mr. Fish’s last noto to Lord Derby relative to tbe extradition of Winslow and other American criminals now bold by tbe British Government is a very clear tad comprehensive statement of tbe views of our Government, based upon tbo tenth article of tbe Ashburton treaty. The concluding por tion of tbo letter, which is as follows, will suffice to show tbo position taken : •* Since the passage of tbo act of 1670, Great Britain baa obtained from this Government some thirteen warrants of extradition, and has instituted a much larger number of proceedings to obtain extradition. In no Instance has Great Britain thought It necessary to tender any such stipulation as she now asks from the United States, or to present ber requests for extradi tion in any way different from that in which they wore presented prior to 1810. The United States In the same time have Instituted numerous proceedings, and at title moment have throe criminals fu London in cus tody upon charges of forgery, whoso extradition this Government Is socking In tbo usual manner provided by treaty. During this period NO INTIMATION baa reached this Government tbat the treaty of 1842 was not In lull force, or that tbo act of 1370 was claimed to limit Us operation, or to Impost) upon this Government the necessity either of changing Its laws or uf giving stipulations nut known to tbo provisions of tbo treaty, and nut heretofore suggested; nor lus any representation been mode to Ibis Government by that of Great Britain on ac count of anv proceedings taken in the caso ol Law iouco mentioned In an opinion attributed to the Homo Office In the note of Lord Derby to Gen. Bchcuck. But now, with three important cases pend ing In London at the present time for extradition, in one of which, at least, all the formalities have boon compiled with, we are informed In substance that It had tracti supposed up to the present time by the Brit ish Ilomn OUlco that our law an to trials for other than extradition offenses was in agreement with the law of IH7O, but finding It to bo otherwise, we sro confronted with (ho rc(]Uiromcnt uf a stipulation, lu order to ob tain what Is guaranteed by tbo treaty of 1811, whereby the United Btates must recognize tho right of tbe British Parliament by statute to change existing executory trestles, and to impose upon this Government conditions and stipulations to which it had nut given its assent. An relates to tho particu lar cane of tho fugitive Winslow, there is not, so fsr as lam aware, any Intention for trying him for any offenses other than those on which indictments were transmitted, and for which his surrender was de manded, Tho United Slates wilt of which the treaty docs not authorize the demand. As tbs stipulation or condition Is demanded by Grout Britain as u right, tbe right of tho demand must ho established. Tho President regrets (hat a condition which, in his Judgment, is without uuy Justification under the treaty should have been asked. Ha regards the question thus presented as of a grave and serious character, on tbe flnsl solution of which must proba bly depend the conUuuanco uf tbo extradition article of tho treaty of ItM'.'. Ho cannot recognize tho right of any other powtrto change st its pleasure and without lha assent of the United HtnU-H the terms and conditions of an executory agreement lua treaty sulomuly ratified between tho United Htatcs and that power. Ho thinks that the 371 h section of the British act, 1870, was specially intended to exempt the treaty with the United Blalca from the application of any new conditions or provisions embodied in that act, aud to leave that treaty to Ira construed and the surrender of fugitives thereunder to bo made as had been previously done. He hopes that on a further conalduiation, Her Majesty's Government will seu In tbe section referred to the effect which ho supirases it was designed to have, but he recognizes that It Is for the British Government lb construe and enforce Its own statutes, ami should Her Majesty's Govern ment finally conclude (hat tho British Parliament has attached a now condition to (bo compliance by that Government of its engagements with tho united Ktates under tho 10th article of the treaty of l>m, relating to (he extradition, requiring from the United Htotvs stipulations not provided for or contemplated In the treaty, he will deeply regret the noyCsslty which will thereby bo Imposed upon him, and does not see how ho can avoid regarding tho refusal by Great Brit ain to adhere to (ho provisions of tbo treaty as they have been reciprocally understood aud construed from Its date to (he present time, or the exaction by (tut Government of a condition hervtofore unknown, as TUE INi'UAOTION AND TUUUINATION OP TUAT PUO- VISION of the treaty. You are uot authorized to enter into any stipulation or understanding as to the trial uf Winslow in case he bo delivered tip to Justice. Ills surrender is asked under and In accordance with tho provisions of the tenth ortlclo of the treaty between the United Stales and Groat Britain, of the tub o» August, Iflfl. Ho is charged with a crime Included within tho list uf crimes enum erated lu the treaty. That crime waa committed with in the jurisdiction of the United Hlates, and he has sought an asvlum and been found within tho lerrltor lies of Great Britain, and tho United Hlates hare pro duced such evidence of hU criminality aa, according to the laws of Great Britain, would justify his appre hension and commilmeut fur trial if the crime or Odense had been committed la Great Britain, Yuu will communicate the substance of this to Lord Derby, and, should be desire It, you may read It to him, SPEAKER KERR.

Proceedings In the Confer- ence at Baltimore, An Unjustifiable Attack Upon the West* era Book Concern. Dr. Lanahan Galls up His Old Grievance of Pour Years Ago. Bat Elicits Little Sympathy from Other Members. He Finally Succeeds In Securing an Investigat ing Committee. fractal DUvateh to The Chicago Tribune, Baltimore, May H.—Tbo groat topic before the Methodist General Conference to-day was the attack of four Baltimore Methodists upon tbe Western Book Concern in tbo memorial which was sent over the country by tlio Asso ciated Proas. Tbo document was presented to tbe Conference by Dr. L&nxhsn, but hu does not claim to be ite author. It is merely an at tempt to figure out tbo insolvency of the West ern Book Concern on tbo basis of its report, by excluding from ite assets over fcMO.OOO, almost tbe whole of which is in real estate, and tbe business and outfit of the Concern in constant and profitable use. It was proved before tbe Conference, to its entire satisfaction, that tbs report of the Book Committee, charged with the supervision of tbo business and tbe auditing of tbe accounts of ibe Western Book Concern, bad been made WITH UNUSUAL 7QOBOCOUKEB3 AND EFFECTIVE- that the real estate is actually worth much more than its appraisement, and that the business is in a boudo and Improving condition. Tbo mo* morialists did not claim over to have examined into the affairs of the Book Concern, merely practicing tbo rule of uabtiaction on its reported assets. The speech of Dr. Lanaban in reply to tbo Western book agents did not contain a single attempt at proving the truth of the memorial which no bad presented, but «u almost wholly made up of the old trouble* of four years ago, which were •ettlcd to the aatlsfacUou of the Caurch and the public fay the last Genera) Conference. Tho bumbo of checu which he ahooh In tbo faces of the Confer* taw, and the targe document which lie churned had been omitted from tho records, were some of mo OLD PAPERS OP T)IAT OLD CASK. Tbo complaint of tho four llaltlmuro memorialists that tho Hook Concern made too little money ou iti largo capital. Is met by tho fact that the concern In largely a benevolent society; is not run. like private business, for money-making, but often tells books sud supports papers at sn actual lore In money for the pur pose of helping on the general work of the Church. Ono other fact not generally known will also aid in clearing up this matter. There Is a small party in the Church which dotlrts to PUT THE WHOLE ROOK CONCERN OCT OF EXISTENCE and turn Its Immense business over to private hands. This party lose no effort to strike tho concern, and. as intbecaaa before the Isat General Conference, are sometimes given to overstatements. This case, how ever, has no better foundation than the notions of those tour men, that first-class real estate, like tho business bouses of tbs Hook Concern In Cincinnati and Chicago, ought to be excluded from the table of assets. The memorialists ARE UNKNOWN MEN, and without business knowledge, or they would not have fallen Into this blunder lu accounts. Dr. lamnahan, still nursing his wrath of four years ago, has merely succeeded In raining that ghost fora few hours. There did not appear to bo another man in (be body who agreed with him, or who did not ro gret bis irrelevant and intemperate speech. Tho attack haa utterly failed to shako the faith of this body In its Wsatern Book Concern. [To it* JilodaiAt prut .l THE WESTERN ROOK CONCERN. Baltimore, Md., May B.—The Methodist Episcopal Conference resumed Us session this morning, BUbop Poster presiding. Dr. Hitchcock, Sr., the agent of the Book Concern at Cincinnati, rose to a question of privilege, and in quired why and through whom the paper presented by Dr. B, Lanaban, In reference to tbo Western Book Concern, had been made public. The Bocrelary, the llov. air. Woodruff, disclaimed any knowledge of tho matter, and Dr.. Hitchcock said that the memorial presented by Dr. Lauahan, charging the insolvency of tno Western Book Concern, was un true in Ua allegations. Amos Bhlnkle sad Dr. Walden, Jr., the agents of the Western Book Concern, earnestly protested against the statement made in tho memorial, and tho latter offer ed a resolution that •• tho Committee on Book Ccuceru report, at the earliest moment, upon tho financial con dition of the Western Methodist Book Concern.” Ho told: “Wo want this for tho protection of our inter eata in tho WeaL The time has come when tho Con ference aball protect oar Interests." DU. LANAIIAN. 447,0u0 MX),ooo 103,000 76,000 .$4,172,000 Dr. Lanahan said the scones that he bail witnessed this morning reminded him of a scene witnessed In New York when he was in a room locked up with fifty men, and he felt aa if he would be torn In pieces be cause it had been charged that the New York Book Concern had been robbed. Ue had hoard the same cry then aato misrepresentation. Mr. Lanahan began to read the statement, showing tho annual losses of the Book Concern fur several years, when Mr. McQueal raised a point of order that the alatement was not germane to the question before the Conference. The Chair ruled the point of order well taken, bnt dually tho motion prevailed to permit Mr. Lanahan to continue. Dr. Lanahan said to tret at the facts it was only nec essary to pans a resolution to require a certain ledger to be brought hero from Kew York,—a ledger that had been thrown aside fur fifteen years. The Methodist Church had Deeit cheated and swindled by false ex hibits, Ho had hero chocks to the amount of (IS'J.Ovt) stolen from the Methodist Book Concern (Dr. Lanahan held up in full view what seemed to be a ]ackagoof checks). Nu inch array of indignation as was at tempted this morning will smother tho truth. Ho waa not shut up here in a room as in New York, aud while the investigation was going on there was that might be Investigated. Tnerowas a document, two-thirds of which had been left out of tho journal of proceedings of the lost Conference, which should have been inserted, and (bis might bo Investigated. Dr. Walden's resolution was then adopted. Dr.Nelaon aald the memorial complimented the New York Book Concern, for which compltn.cnt ho full by no meins obliged, and repelled and then denied its statements ana allegations. Bishop Harris said he waa Secretary of ths last Gen eral Conference for two-thirds of tho session, when bo resigned, and Dr. Woodruif (Hecrclary of the pres ent Conference) was chosen successor. Together they edited the Journal of tho proceedings of the last Con ference. and supposed they had discharged that duly faithfully. In view of the statement this morning 1m nllcaUnglhem in omitting some part of the proceed ings, be asked tho appointment of a special commission to investigate the charges, aud report the facts. He denied peremptorily, squarely, and fully, an omission of the records from the journal of prucrodiugs. Dr. Woodruff disclaimed any omission, if such a thing had occurred it was not wilhiu h)s knowledge*. Dr, Lauahan was proceeding with a statement in re gard to the report of the examination made by John X. Gann, when tho Chair ruled U uot in order. Biahop Harris’ motion for a special committee was then passed, with an amendment sulhomJug Dr. Lan ah an to appear before (be Committee. William Bice, H. B. Bidgowar, 0. Altman, James Beaton, and J. D. Weaver were appointed Committee, Fraternal delegates and others from Canada were Introduced, and tho delegates will be formally received to-morrow. Memorials were presented snd referred, and tho Conference adjourned. CASUALTIES. THE IOWA CITY ACCIDENT.

Terry In command of the Fort Lin coln column, ordera having come from Washing ton thin afternoon restoring him to duty with his regiment, and giving him permission to go with the expedition. Notwithstand ing contradlctione from Washington, somebody baa been incensed at Custer, probably on account of his connection with the Investigation proceed ings. Ho was suspended from his regimental command, and was likely to be left at Fort Lin coln for the summer in command of a small guard.

Us senior ofllcur, in department be hind. The order of tills afternoon in the Presi dent’s reply to Custer's appeal. Custer's per sonal friends here believe that Secretary Taft and Gen.
