When tho United States Court opened yester day morning,'. Judge-Blodgett asked if there were ahy motions. There was .no-response, when the Court announecd that If there were no motions ho would have to postpone opera tions for a half an hour or so on account of tho absence of Mr. Beatles, one of tho jurors. This communication was received by Col. Ingcrsoll, who had just thrown away a cigar, and came la dripping, as to bis face and brow, with sweat, with the pious exclamation, “Tho Lord bless Mr. Scarlcs; I’ll get a smoko*” . The Court had been out about fifteen min utes when the missing Juror came lu and took his scat. It was nearly 11 o'clock, however, be* fore Judge Blodgett asccntlcd his wooden throno and called up tho cose.' Botli'eldcs were .ready,'with the exception that Mr. Dexter, of tho Government counsel, was absent on account of thoiUncss. of his son, and .Judge Doolittle, .lor the defense, had been railed to Bt. Louis, ’but will return to-day. Tho excuses were re ceived by thb Court, and tho ease allowed to pro ceed. 0. G. Russell was tho first witness called. Ho was dressed In a new suit of rough brown stuff, and acquitted' himself with hfs usual non chalance. - Ho testified as follows: , I have lived hero since 1871. Went Into tho G. 0. Russell distillery then; commenced mak ing crooked whisky In July or August, 1873: wo had an explosion In Dedomber, 1871, which blew tho still all to pieces, and wo got behind with the Government about $15,000; my bondsmen couldn't pay It; ono of them,' Parker R. Mason, said we'd better make it up onotlwr way, - and (Wo then went Into the crooked business; our arrangements were with'Gaugers and Store- 1 keepers, ami Mr. Rchm; wo paid tho latter SSOO a month for •PROTECTION AND SUITABLE CADGERS AMD storekeepers; wo made these payments up to tho Ist of April, 1875. Wo got warning of visits from Washing .too several times,from Adolph Mueller, Pnrkcm.. ‘Mason, and August Nowhan. iSrncst Mnttorn, Her man Becker, J, S. Forsyth, Jamcs’Mlllor, Lorenz Matturn, J. 11. Hildreth, 11. C. McMullen, and . others were there. All wore crooked except Hinck ley,-tho Ganger. Tho latter was sent to our house . on'account of some misunderstanding about paying Rohm, and was kept there for some months to pro vent our running crooked. Finally Mr. Rehm took : him oil. Wo paid tho Storekeepers 82.C0 a barrel, •and the Gaugers SB. Some weeks wo got out thirty barrels of crooked, and sometimes ninety or 100; sixty barrels would be a fair average. I under stood • alb • tho - other distilleries were run* -nlug the same way. .Our house.'was seized 1 May 10, lß7s;th(nklthasbccncondomncd.

Wo also sent to Ootsco & Eastman, and to .JohnOlark & Co., tbolr predecessors. Wo lost about f> cents a gallon on etrhight goods, and couldn’t compete with tho market on them. Wo 'were required to pay a tax on 80 per cent of our capacity; wo reported Just a'little above that, 'sometimes, to make it look fair. lhad SEVERAL CONVERSATIONS WITH MR, REHM . in 1874, and before that upon the North Sldo drive, j 1 began paying- Mason for Rchm in 1873. 1 bad a' ‘conversation noforo that with Rchm riding from 1 my hoaso to the Michigan Hotel on Congress street. Rehm told mo how we coaid got out of our trouble by paying |SOO a month. Ho mentioned Irvin and Bridges and said they might want to go down to; Long Branch and ho guessed we’d have to fix them: np.’ lie nevcrmentloned Mr. Munn’sname. CROSS-EXAMINATION. "By Cel. Ingcrsoll—Tho crooked lUafT'apncarcd all right- on the wagons,-the barrels all.being stamped.' It would bo pretty hard for a stranger to Dnd out our crookedness; the only way was to check off our shipments;-and to compare- the re- 1 suits with our renprts to the Collector's ofllco., Nobody who simply walked around there could seo . there was a fraud. Wo Wore'Just as cunning as wo could bo. We altered all our tube and mado HUemO Inches bigger In diameter, without altering the flgdrcs on the oatsldoof the tubs. -1 nevercon iplrca with Munn.

I BAW IIB9INO, and said-Pd pay 81,000 to have It fixed, but bo ‘failed to accomplish It. I promised-Hoyt $1,500 to tako him oil, and made an arrangement to see him at Chapin as Gore’s. Jake Rohm came along, and pitched into me about talking to Hoyt, and -saldlf I'd keep still he'd take Hinckley oil at the end of the month,' and he finally did. 1 have been Indicted and pleaded guilty. • By Mr.-Aver—Hoyt was then Acting-Collector, - Collector Irvin being ill. When the tax was 'rtUedfrom 70 to DO scents, wo conldn't got any duplicate stomps, so Mason cave me fivu stamps oft - from some nun barrels. 1 then drove over to Ma sson's,-before- the goods were delivered, in my, 'buggy, and found,Mono and Bridgos'-thore. I • Mopped the goods till they left the place, and then ' had the goods delivered. , .’ By Col. Ingcrsoll— I To make It look real honest 1 wo generally reported a little over 80 per cent of our capacity,—four or five barrels over, once lo a while. E. C. LEACH. ' WHAT HE KNOWS OP CROOKEDNESS. ! Egbert C. Leach was next called.' Ills evi dence was as follows: I have rcaldcdln Chicago , about ten years.

PARKER R.' MASON. ' A llSCTlfflßn’fl BT<JHT. 1 ’ Parker ft; Mason ‘--he paradox, with hfa rami* cst airs ami big collar, uuxt took tho stand, lie testified as follows: 1 Have been In the business since 1671; was with Qcorgo n. Croaby until 1873; was after* wards at No. 41 Michigan street for myself. We bought Illicit whisky from Russell, Miller, and Rood, while I was with Crosby. After tho dissolution of ttio firm, 1 had similar transac tions with Russell, Dickenson, and Loach, tho Lake Shore, and sumo from tho country—Conk* rile, of Morris, ond Jonathan Tunier, of Sago town.. I got CO-barrel lots from these parties. They anno over tho Burlington & (Julncy Road. Couldn’t say ; how many lots 1 got from tlicso parties In - tho country, I returned tho stamps to tho city disililurs and they used them again, making a reduction for this privilege of from 15 to 25 cents a gallon on crooked goods. 1 paid full price for straight goods, l sent out tho goods on rectifiers’ stamps. I bought tho stamps In the ofllcc,. paying ouo of the' clerks SSOO a book; Guess r bought tbrcoor four books. I filled tho stomps out to suit myself, and used thorn just os I wanted to., Thcyhavo been missed since. [Laughter.] f. Minty, was tho stamp clerk who sold them. Tho stamps arc worth 10 cents Apiece. I commenced paying Rohm In tho fail of 1873, and kept it up till the time/of tho seizures, our payments varying from’ SSOO to $1,500. I - recollect that'' Munn and -Bridges came to oar bouse In March, 1875. tgavo Russell some stamps that I took off of some barrels of Now England rum from Boston. - Munn found tho bar rels up tho thlrdstory.* .The sfampslmd boon taken off vary neatly, lie said they ought to bo seised. 1 said they woro all right, and that was obout all there was of It. ■ lie anu Bridges woro there about an hour. I shipped my goods to New York by rail to Both Ely & Co. Don't remember tho ronas we shipped over. I didn’t report these, but tho rail road books would sliqw It. CROSS-EXAMINATION. .■ By Col. Ingcrsoll—l had no norllcalar-bargain with Mr. Rclun: paid him $7,000 or SB,OOO- for Russell;' if Russell paid mo more than that, I must have kept part of U myself. 1 ■{Laughter,] The Now England rum was straight; the only thing I can say*against Munn Is.thatho’ didn’t seize some straight goods. 1 gnees I was I preltr well dressed and looked honest enough; X I wasn’t afraid of tho goods being seized, andl told; him the truth when 1 said-they woro all right. 1- have been indicted, and pleaded guilty, .but not ex- 1 coated. lam hanging an the tenter-nooks of cz fcctotlon. I never conspired with Munn to do- 1 mud tho Government. i By Mr. Ayer—Mann didn't know there had ever; been any stamps 6n tho barrels, and said they! ought to be stamped. . Isaldwr never potstamj«j on till wo shipped tho goods. That was our cus tom,- tint not the law exactly. > By CoL Ingcrsoll—l sought to convey tho Idea I that the goods would bo snipped some time, bnti that wo didn’t stamp them till wo sent thorn oil, i ond that was tho truth, too. 1 assured him that It' was all straight, ond ho thought It was. : i GOIiSEN. nr3 ILLICIT .DEALINGS. William 8. Oolscn was the next witness. Ho deposed: thavo lived In Chicago twenty-three years. I have been engaged in the whisky bust-, ness, and was connected with tho firm of John Clark & Co., which I Joined in 1809. After ■ Clark's death, in 1874, the name of tho firm was, changed to Golscn & Eastman. I gave my per*; soual attention to the rectifying establishment., I was not concerned In any distillery. Our firm ’ commenced purchasing Illicit whisky in June, 1873; wo made our first purchases from Miller & 1 Reed. wo bnd> 150 barrels a week V. of < tho contra band from tho various distilleries. [Wit ness then gave particulars as to the time Ids firm' commenced dealing with tho different crooked establishments.] Tho goods I bought of Miller & Reed, and others, were paid for by checks, with tho exception of Dickenson, Abel & Co., who were paid In currency. I had to pay cash for : somoof the goods, hut with some of tho distillers i I had an arrangement for fifteen days. We used to get rid of the goods by selling below the mar kot price,- and using India-rubber packages. Ilia ■ whisky was always brought to tho rectifying houses In tho daytime. 1 am acquainted with Mr. Munn; his olllcc, while he was Supervisor, was In this building. Ido not-know how long ho has lived In Chicago, nor when ho moved here. Mr. Munn visited our - house - twice. In'April, ‘1875,- ho paid usn visit, when an crrdr was discov ered In regard to spirits shipped to Mr. Boilers, of Pittsburg. I had caused the entry in tho hooks to' bo erased, and the correct entry made, giving tho natno of tho consignee and destination, In. order to correspond with the stamps on, the barrels, which had been returned to Col.' Munn with- instructions to 1 investigate, Mr. Eastman .communicated tho information to methot Mr. Munn was to visit our place to In spect, and that gentleman. In company with Col. Bridges, came tho next day. Mr.. Mann looked over the bobks and treated mo like a gentleman, I must say. 110 said, “Oolaen, I am sorry you have erased this.* 1 I did not say much, but I guess wo had a bottle of wlno, or several. I told 'MaJ, Bridges that If he went to tho Collector’s of fice right away he would find the Ganger’s report would not agree with tho books, but If he deferred the visit one day they would exactly correspond. (La tighter.] Mr. Munn’s visit would bo In March. 1 caused Mr. Hood then to make a report, which, was token to tho Collector’s oOlccnnd put In the 'place of tho first return. JAKE REIIM RAD INFORMED COL. EASTMAN of the Supervisor's Instructions to Inspect our place. The other occasion when ho visited us ho found some empty barrels wltbi uncancolcd stamps. Ho Inquired about them, ; and! explained how this Irregularity happened. •We never heard anything further of this. Dating the time of the crooked business distillers could, not run straight unless they lost C cents a gallon. Mr. Jlunn, 1 think, did not show mo his Instruc tions from Washington when bo visited us. CROSS-EXAMINATION. • By Col. Ingcrsoll—Anybody could seethe erasure in the book. Sir. Munn did uot ask mo whether I i had erased It. ' I did not tell him that I had erased 1L He did not ask any explanation; nor did I tell 'hlmthalitwas an honest transaction. I did not* 'tell hint that the book agreed with the Government, book; 1 told my partner that. I may have told him, a lie. I have a right to tell lies if I can make money by them. [Laughter. 1 Q.—Would yon do as much to keep out of the -Penitentiary, or to mitigate your sentence, ns you. would do to make a dollar t A.—l do not under stand you. Col. Ingcrsoll repeated the question several times and explained'the moaning, but Golncn could not see it. Q.—lf you will Ho to make money, Just toll me whether you would He to keep out of the Peniten tiary! A. (emphatically)—No, sir; I would not. Q.—But yoa would lio to moke a dollar! A,— Ohl but that's business. [Laughter.} Witness (continuing) said: I took the report to the ofllco and changed it in an open manner. 1 did not try to steal the bonk for this purpose. The stubs, and stamps, and the report are still a little mixed; I think tho items agree with the stubs now. One of them [examining the books} does not Agree now. The staff sent to Pittsburg was India rubber packages. 1 dli uot tell Munn (hat I’ was 'stealing -whisky; I never stole whisky. I did not explain lohlmtliat I took off stamps and sent them back to distilleries; I did not advertise my bujjncss. I supposed that he know I ■was defrauding the revenue. I changed the report* to fix up things In proper shape, lu accordance with Jake Retim'd directions. 1 was not afraid about Munn taking any action, but I thought the Govern ment might not nave confidence in him, and would send some one else from Washington to look Into the matter; that Is the reason why I changed the* report early next morning. Minty was lu the ofllco when I wont in. 1 did uot buy stamps of him; I was uot In that business. BUSINESS, NOT FRAUD. O. —Were you In any fraud! A. —No; you might call it a fraud. Q.***Woll,‘ what do you call it! A.—l call It business. l^.—When • you took a stamp off a barrel you knew yon wore stealing to that amount of rovenuef A.—l did not steal; 1 took It. Q.—Audit belonged to the Qovcrmnojitf No, tl botongod to the barrel. , Q.—Then you stole it oil the barrel! A.—l toolc it off. Q.—What did ron tako it off fort A-—To ro* lUrn to the distiller. Q.—To help him steal! A.—l don’t caro what you call it. Q.— Did yoa tako tho stamp off to help the dla tiller to become a thief and steal that much revenue from tho Government! A.—Well, you might tako It— Q.— How did you take It! A.—l Just told yoa 1 took it as a busiuess transaction. The Court at this point took a recess. ' Among tho afternoon audience Oen. Stove liar!' but, member of Congress, bore a rather conspic uous part, Mr. Uoutcllslso appeared at tho tublo whore the Government counsel were seated. W. D. Golsen was recalled, and in answorto Col; Ingersoll’fl Interrogations testified as f swear to nothing but tbs truth; I have always been that way. 1 was once accused of making crooked whisky, hut at the trial the Jury brought in a verdterof not guilty without leaving Uteir seats. This was two or tares years before the Are; I woe s Ganger ' before I was a rectifier! was : -discharged on- account of poll* tics. I was previously - removed by Judge Ilopklnh Mr a technical violation of the law; ■but was discharged end made Inspector-General, at higher wages. ‘1 was always straight then, except when I took the proofs. 1 commenced helping the distillers steal tiie taxes in 1872. My clerk. Phil pot, made the reporta. 1 never interfered with him. Us kept the Government book, and cot SSO s month for 1C I bed no understanding with ulm os to whether be was to keep correct books or not; the Jury will have to look at tbu books to find that out.

I guess It was wrong for him to make a false report, but -it wns n business transaction, and he .-did It. There was no awcarlng done when I was a Gannr; they had to certify to a lie, though. When my Ganger wanted any money I gave tlfo him ns aloanpiaOkno notes; hare asked twoorthrcoof them for it back. I made no bargain with them. I never had any arrangement hut I suppose when I f old tho money they would let my boys do what hoy wanted to, and they did. . They said the Gov* ernment hadn't paid them; they were hard up, and they wanted money. 1 expected they'Would favor ns when we naked them, hut I never asked them, for my shipping* clerk was with tho Gangers.

Hy Mr. Ayert Those stubs were kept In my office until tho stamps were gone; then they were taken to tho Collector's office, and wc got more stamps. OTHER WITNESSES. J. W. HO^D was tho next witness. Ho teaCUlcd as follows I.was a Gauger from February to May, 1678, la .this district, 1 made a return of . spirits gauged at Golscn & Eastman’s about Feb. 15, 1875.* I suppose Ganger Watson did the gaug ing, but I made the return. 1 had permission from tho Collector’s ofllco to do this, and I mode up. my return from the mem orandum furnished mo by Watson, nr from tbo stubs.. Z don’t know whether tho re turn is true or false. This Is a copy of tho re port I made, with the exception that tho copy takes account of threo barrels more than tho report I made. I made this change In tho re turn at his request.' lie then returned the orig inal that had been filed Feb. 15. I don’t know whether 1 Munu hod recently mode a visit to tho house or not Golsca explained tho seizure of tho goods; said It was a mistake oil around, and asked jnako out the now return. Golscn told me Munnunderstood the whole matter, and If tho change, was made ho would report accordingly. Cross-examination hy Cot.

I made out tho new re port to help him correct an honest, fnintabc, and I was honest in what I did. 1 havo been Indicted, but have sot been tried yet. col. wxrrnEWs. •■was next called and examined. He said I lam the -present Supervisor 'of Internal Revenue of this district. I cama into tho olllcc on tho Ist day of .lost May.'

East man’s honesty. COL. rUAKE EASTMAN was next placed on tho stand. He testified: I was a member of tho firm of John Clnrk «b Co., and ■ afterwards In the firm of Golscn & Eastman. After Mr. Clark’s death I had not much to do with (ho -management of the business. 1 remember e visit made to our rectifying establishment by Sir. Munn Feb. 15,187"». I bad previous notice of the visit through Mr, Rohm, who told mo a complaint bnd : been modo against ns, and wo wero to bo Investl fated. Tho Supervisor called tho same nr tho next ay I received this information. Ho asked to sue I •tho Government-book, which I showed him. ißook produced and Identified.] At tho time the hook was shown defendant tho erasures had been made. Ho saw tho erasures, and asked for an explanation, and Mr. Oolaon told him there had keen a mistake in tho shipment ‘that there bad been a mistake In putting on the stamps, and that he wanted tho book to correspond with tho fact. Mr. Mum was at tho jilacc about an honraUogcthor, during which time this matter was ■ talkfcd of. Mo Gauger was present at tho tlmo, and I cannot remember whether tho stub of (ho stamp-book wax called for. Mr.' Munn and I had a . bottle of wine together. I knew nothing personal ly of tho erasure. I thought Mr. Munn .was dissatisfied with tho condltiofi- of tho bonk, saying that It waa unfortunate the erasure •bnd ■ been made before tho attention of. the Government was called to It.

Mr. Munn did nut i want any money from us, nor did we offer him any. I never conspired with the defendant to do- , - fraud - tho -Government, nor did tic, to my knowl edge, do any fraudulent action In this particular case. Ho acted like a gentleman, an honest man, and a friend. Q.—Dirt yon consider It any evidence of fraud that Mr. Mnnn took yoar worn? . Question objected to and objection sustained. Witness further stated that Mr. Munn reported correctly on this matter and according to the facts. Tho Court then adjourned to this morning at 10 o'clock. CONKLIN TO TUB FRONT.

Although Intro* dueed by tho prosecution os a part of the proof of the conspiracy, realty bad no connection with such conspiracy, but simply proved Goldberg's attempt tooltalnapost-tradcrihlpand tho result, and hq now desired to'go further and Introduce the entire .correspondence, of which the letter produced aim* ply announced the final result, thus repelling the theory of tho prosecution that some dark do* sign was referred to by tho writer, and making clear his true object, which was l an entirely proper one. In his remarks, the i speaker also referred to the foci that high names bad been sought to bo compromised by the prose* cullou In connection with tho. letter of tidpt* 13, offering the correspondence to prove ~Of_thatlet(er. xaa actual uslhino JJI, MeKfnnay Qfrjqctpl V?

Q—Did you ever employ Louis Blndakopf 1 Objected U>. Judge Dixon reading extensively from authorities In support of the position that communications made to Government counsel arc privileged. Murphey followed, and. referring to tho character of L. nindskopf, denounced him an an InfamottM witness, even If employed by High Heaven, a perjured villain.and a samtife llnr, an whose testimony a dog should not be Imngod. Ho received a dispatch at 10 o’clock last night stating that Illndskonf was In Chicago trying to snhom witnesses for this case, ond replied,, * ‘ Watch him," and, If the evidence wem obtained, ho (counsel) would have the notorious villain pun ished. This liar and perjurer and Leopold wlrth are the pillars of tho prosecution. The cases read by Dixon referred to treason and the protection of on Informer w bo was also an officer of the Govern* ment. In tida Instance, Itlndskopf had not yet been shown to bo nn officer of the Government, Judge Dixon said that, whether the question were proper or not, be should send McKinney to the stand to answer It.

McKinney had never done any tiling of the sort. 6.—ls it not u fact that Louis Rindskopf fur nished (lie information on which the prosecution was brought. • Objected to, and sustained.

' Dixon said this was ns far ns the examination might to go, and he retorted on tho defense the charge of pcrjnrlng witnesses. Murphey proposed to show that these virtuous whisky men, whose characters the counsel far tho Government were solicitous about, went toCblcngo corruptly to buy perjury. Ho concluded with tho fervent ejaculations “MyGod! whutarewecom- Ineto?" tho examination was resumed. The witness said ho talked with Horace Klllott, n detective; Louis did most of the talking; Elliott sold Cohen was implicated with tampering with stolen goods. Prom this point tho examination was unanswered Interrogation points, with frequent notes, excla mations, fervid adjectives, and tedious technicali ties, amid which the Court adjourned.

METHODISM. TIXR ORRBItAI* CONFEItECE, Special Ditpateh to The Tribune. Baltimore, MU m May 35. —Tiio most eloquent and surprising piece of rhetoric thus far produced upon the platform of the General Conference waa the address of the paternal delegate Bora the Pres* byterlan Church of the United Stales, who was none other than the famous Dr. Patton, of Chicago. His reception was not at all enthusiastic at first, for It looked as If this great Calvlnietlc body of Christians had sent some slight, thin, sharp* featured, spectacled young thcologoe from Prince* ton as their representative, but before he had spoken half-a*ilii2cn sentences It was evident that above and behind those spectacles was ono of the clearest set of brains In America. This was warprWmimbcr one. Very soon It began to be whispered round that this was the hcrcUc*bnn* ter who had started Prof. Swing and driven him to cover at McVicker's Theatre, and when the clo* quent young doctor began to slmvc how moth alike w ere the Methodist Armenians and the Presbyterian Calvinists, and to reach out a brotherly hand with a right hearty fashion of word*, that wo* surprise number two. He said: “Armenians are Calvinists when they pnty, and Calvinists are Armenians when they preach. Into these two hemispheres has the orb b religious thought been divided, and surely wo ought each to be satisfied' with a hemisphere apiece. The question In these days Is not so much whether God answer* prayer os whether them be any God,—not so ranch how the soul Is to 1m saved as whether there he any soul; therefore, you and wo do well to stand together arul take stock of tho matters in which we are agreed. When we re duce Presbyterianism to its lowest terms, we find these three things: First, the . people have a volcu in tho Church; ‘second, the power .of majorities is ‘ greater than of minorities; and. third, there Is one order of the ministry. In all of these we arc like you, and, after all since your ministry Is not your Chnrcb, since laymen vole in your assemblies, ond since Bishops arc not prelates, I may bo pardoned for saying that the Methodist. Episcopal Church Is a Presbyterian Church after all. You are like os, also. In having o creed aud a theology which your ministers are hound to preach. The day will bo ; observed ns a legal holiday throughput thu devil's dominions when tho Confession of Faith shall give place to broad churchlim, and when o man lif the orthodox communions can hold his place while giving a doubtful utterance upon the supreme deity of Jcsu-i Christ.” TT>o right brotherly sound of his closing words yns* fliiffgcFtirm that the contogioun geniality of SOU or MO Methodist preacher* had modified his customary life, which Is more of Iho seminary than of the people, and the unmistakable feeling of the Conference was thtfu for on Old-School Presbyterian and a theological Prufsoor, there was umtsnal hope of him, both bccamw of bis genius and h!a youth. On Wednesday next, so say the Committee on the Hook Concern, the ejections are to begin, and when It Is taken into accounttbatthlrteen high and valuable church office* are to be tilled at this Con ference, there U evident need of the prayers of good Methodists everywhere on Its .behalf. The con.-crvotlvo character of the lay clement has just been notably demonstrated in the follow ing action of a meeting of lay delegates Just adjourned: ** Wjikiioas, Change* of the Discipline ought to be made withgrcatcarc; therefore, . “ Uftolted, That on alllniportant questions In volving such charges, we will;call for separate votes of Iho clergy and laity. ’• This appears to have been called ont by the over radical views of some of the young preachers, who uro advocating the election of Presiding Elder by the Animal Conference, or the abolition of the office altogether. To the Wettem AivKlaitd Prets. Daltixoiie Md., May 15. bishop Simpson preached nt the General Conference to-day. A memorial was presented from the Baltimore Conference setting for4b that the Committee on Ex hibit of the Hook Concern, appointed at the annual session of 1872, called attention to the loss of 8201.000 net capital as reported in 1673 as com pared with 1871. and requesting the Book Com mittee at New York, In its animal statement, to give the reasons for the difference. As this re quest has not been complied with, therefore the General Conference Is requested to require the book apenta to furnish a detailed statement of the causes of such deficit, haw much on account of real estate, how much merchandise, and how much on account of ,bo«k apents. Referred. A resolution to niter the restrictive rules no as to plve ns nearly as possible equal representation of clerical and lay delegates to the several conferences was referred. Tbo report of ,7. Rothwcller and (bo Rev. Dr. Chulfnnl, fraternal delegates to the Evangelical Association at Philadelphia Oct, 14, 1675, was pre sented and rend. The following was submitted: WitEiiEAs, Our Lord's Prayer and complete and perfect form Is found on the record In only one Since In the New Testament, namely. Matt. 0. —Ill; therefore. Jlaolred, That tills form be substituted and pub lished in our book of discipline instead of that form now In use. Referred. M. 11. Fleming. of Dm Moines, moved to strike out the words ••holy Catholic" and Insert “one universal church of Christ” In the baptismal ritual. Referred. The order of the day was suspended for the for ma] reception of the fraternal delegate from tho ■Presbyterian Church The Rev. F. I. Patton was Introduced and ad drostNod the Conference, bearing cordial and frater nal salutations from the Presbyterian Chnrch. His remarks were frequently applauded, and, at their conclusion, a resolution of gratification at his visit, and fraternal and Christian sympathies with the Presbyterian Church, wore unanimously adopted. U was agreed that the Secretary should strike from tho proceedings of Saturday fast all reference to questions of veracity between Dr. Nelson and Dr. Lanahun. Adjourned. CASUALTIES. A BROKEN RAIL.
