    Colored Brethren Loyal.
Delegate Brown Declares They Wili Remain
Faithful to the Methodist Church Four New
Bishops to be Created.
OMAHA, May 11. —Rev. Mr. Brown,
a colored Maryland brother, offered a
long resolution at to-day’s session of the
general conference of the Methodist
church, declaring that the colored
brethren were faithful and loyal to the
church and would remain so, nothwith-
standing the false report that the colored
brethren intended to stampede from the
church if certain concessions were not
made to them. The resolution was re-
ferred to the committee on the state of
the charch.
The conference then took up the con-
sideration of the constitution committee.
Bishop Merrill said he would be glad if
he could represent the commission asa
unit. But it had not been. The report
was the opinion and conclusion of the
majority. “I shall not argue before
you as to whether our conclusions were
right or wrong” said Bishop Merrill.
“I simply explain our conclusions and
leave you to decide.” Bishop Merrill
then reviewed the adoption of the law
by which delegates were admitted to the
general conference.
Some one asked why the report had
not been printed months ago, because it
had been ready some time prior to the
meeting of the conference.
“We were appointed by the last gen-
eral conference,” said Bishop Merrill,
‘‘with instructions to report to this gen-
eral conference, not to the public, and
we have followed the instructions.”
Dr. Hammond then offered an amend-
ment to the report to make all those
acts constitutional which had been ap-
proved by a two-thirds vote of the
church in accordance with the restrictive
rules, but all other parts should not be
considered a part of the constitution.
Mr. O'Neil spoke vigorously in favor
of putting the same approval upon those
things that had been done in accordance
with the restrictive rules, but did not
approve otf anything that had been done
with due authority.
Dr. J. M. Hamilton thought the con-
ference should also decide what was
meant by laymen. Did it mean only
men, as Dr. Buckley held, or did the
word laymen mean both men and wom-
en. This should be made definite by
this conference, if possible, before the
women themselves got in the conference
to debate the question. Adjournment
was taken at this point.
The committee on episcopacy has de-
cided to recommend four new bishops to
be created in defiance of the official ac-
tion of the episcopal board, which was
against increasing its members. This,
it is said, was brought out by the candi-
dates themselves.
The Largest Whisky Sale.
Ten Thousand Barrels Change Hands in One
CINCINNATI, O., May 10.—The larg-
est sale of Bourbon whisky ever made in
the United States was consummated to-
day when the Union Distillery Com-
pany bought for $150,000 cash 10,000

tillery at Cynthiana, Ky.
The Silver Conference.
No Official Responses Received Fr om Foreign
Governments Invited to Participate.
‘WASHINGTON, May 11.--It was stat-
ed at the Treasury department .this af-
ternoon no official response has yet been
received from any of the foreign govern-
ments invited to meet this government
in a conference of the silver question.
The London press dispatch containing
Chancellor Goschen’s statement that
England will send delegates to the con-
ference created no surprise at the de-
partment whatever, for the reason that
pave assurance to that effect had
een previously given by the proper re-
presentatives of her majesty, It is said
that similar assurances have also been
received from other governments. The
invitations were mailed two weeks ago,
and the responses from the respective
countries may be looked for in a short

Rexroat Defeats Bogardus.
St. Lours, May 8.—Captain Bogar-
dus, who at one time held the cham-
pionship wing shot of the world, and
Wiliam Rexroat, of Illinois, shot a
bird match yesterday. Fach man shot
at seventy-five pigeons, and Rexroat
succeded in stopping sixty-five, Bogar-
dus scoring but sixty-four. The high
wind made shooting difficult, and sever-
al birds that were hard hit managed to
wiggle over the dead line.

A Good Man Gone*
DIED,—At his home in Albany, Ill, Monday,
April 25th, 1892, Samuel Sharer, aged sixty-
three years, two months and eleven days.
Samuel Sharer was born in Lancaster coun-
ty, Pa., Feb. 14, 1829. When he was twelve
years of age his parents came to Centre coun-
ty and located in the vicinity of Zion ; where
he remained until he attained the age of
manhood. While he was yet a young man he
married Miss Mollie Hoy, sister of the late
Judge Hoy, of Bellefonte; their union was,
blessed with eleven children, nine :of whom-
six sons and three daughters, remain to
mourn the loss of a kind and loving father
In the spring of 1866, Mr. Sharer, accompaa
ied by his wife and family, settled on a farm
near Albany, White side county, Iil., where,
three years ago he was called upon to mourn
the loss of the wife of his youth.
About one year ag» Mr. Sharer was united
in marriage to Miss Sophia E. Young, of Pine
Grove Mills, Centre county, Pa., since which
time they have made their home in Albany.
To those who were personally acquainted with
Mr. Sharer written eulogies are not necessary
to call to mind the noble christian character of
him whose whole life was an example of piety.
At the age of thirteen years he embraced the
christian religion, and in 1850 united with the
Methodist Episcopal church, to which he re-
mained faithful until the hour of death, which
came after two weeks of intense suffering.
The funeral took place from the M. E. church
his sons acting as pall-bearers. The services
were conducted by his pastor, Rev. J.G. B.
Shadford, whose remarks were fitting and
comforting to the mourning wife, sons and
daughters. The body was followed to the
grave by a large concourse of friends assem-
bled to pay the last tribute of respect to one
who in life was honored for the truest nobility
and christian graces, which have won for him
a place among those of whom it is written,
“Blessed are:they that do his command-
ments, that they may have a right to the tree
of life, and may enter in throught the gates of
the city.” W.B Y.
