Tho excitement caused by tho promul

ro-estabUsh friendly relutiotis with the
Holy Soo were regarded all along with
suspicion, and tho close relations of the
special envoy, Errington with an Eng

characterizes Errington, who has been

Great Britain and tho Vatican, as a

According to the Watsoutown lie-
cord, a most singular occurrence took
place in Union county, near Allen wood,
last week. There lived in one houso,
ui ine enu oi ino Alien wood, or Union
town, bridge, two sisters named Mis,
Antes and Mrs. Seifert, aged 79 and 88
yoaiw. They lived very affectionately
together,and several times both spoko
of their desire to die at the samo time,
at they feared that if ono would dio
first tho other would bo loft dostituto
nnd with no one to care for her.
Strnngo to say tho one took sick and
died on Friday eveulngabout 7o'clook,
and nt eight o'clock tho next morning
tho other idso departed her lifo. Thoy
were both members of tho Baptist
church and devout Christians. On Mon
day two hearses, two cofllnsnnd a largo
procession of people were seen moving
off from their late residence toward the
Baptist ceraotery in Grogg township,
whero thoy both wero interred In tho
same grave. Thoy wero tho last two
of a generation.
Tlio Condition of Trade.
v - 1
nre several olivlous causes for
a dull ictall trade this spring, but they
do not indicate any positive rovulsion
lt business circles. Tho season lias
bcon most unpropitlous for spring trade
ior l ie Bimpio reason mat we unvo nan
no spring. What should have been the
spring season and make activity in the
large nnd generally diffused spring
trade, proved to bo tho lingering of
winter and the inovitnblo stagnation oi
tho largo trade that only spring can
create. We shall now plunge sudden
ly into summer, nnd the lost spring
trado is1 gone beyond recall. What af
fects one important, branch of trade,
more or less affects all, and not only
tho manufacturer, the wholesaler and
tho retailer of spring goods havo felt
the effects of the unfavorable season,
but every branch of tho retail trade lias
been measurably nffected in lika man
tier. Anrther cause of stagnation in tho
retail trade is overproduction and con
sequent revulsion in several of our most
important industries. Wo havo largely
overproduced iron ; woaro largely over
producing coal, and wo are largely
overproducing in somo of our fabrics.
Overproduction gradually but surely
foices reduced prices for products, re
duced wages for labor, tho suspension
of factories, the enforced idleness of
labor, the inability of consumers to pay.
nnd revulsion comes quickly in the sen
sitive chords of trade. Nor is the ef
fects of overproduction limited at pres
ent to its substantial results. Thero is
a foolish apprehension abroad of gener
al financial revulsion and that commands
all classes since the yet freshly-remembered
bitter experience that 'followed
the panic of 18711. Speculative bears
are constantly predicting revulsion ns
they hopu to profit by it, and small
speculators who havo been sheared to
nakedness by the great gimblers, ci oak
about revulsion and disaster becausa
they have gambled themselves into bank
ruptcy. Tho true solution of tho present loin
porary stagnation in tho retail trade of
tho country, is the safe, conservative
feeling of the people generally and their
determined purpose to keep the country
upon tho sound fiiiaueial basis it now
enjoys. Thero is no rational ground
for business revulsion. The balance of
trado is in favor of our people; thecrops
of last year were the largest ever
known ; tho fields aro green with the
promiso of another bountiful harvest ;
our agricultural people, the great foun
dation of tho nation's prosperity, aro
moro freo from debt than at any time
since tho inflation of war, and our me
chanical and laboring classes aro living
within their means 'i'hore have beon
failures, but almost wholly in specula
tive circles, aud the exceptions have
been a few channels whicn are crippled
by overproduction ; but the country,
taken as a whole, has never been on a
sounder basis than now, and if it con
sumes less just at this time, it is because
it is necessary to enable the people to
consume more in tho early future aud
pay for it. There is nothing in the
present dullness of trado to cause ap
prehension ot continued and greater
stagnation. Tho causes aro temporary
and will speedily correct themselves,
and every channel of trado will become
healthier and better because the people
sensibly take purse even at shadows and
wait until their exact latitude can be
taken. A country that sells moro than
it buys and that has general freedom
from debt among its people, has every
assurance of substantial and enduring

The following persons wero elected officers
for tho ensuing yenr i President, Hov. M.
It. Smyscr i Secretaries, ltevs. M. L.
Drum and II. Sutherland ; Treasurer,
Lloyd Slmrpless. Several visiting brethren
together with tho pastors of churches In
the town wero Invited on motion to take
part In tho convention. Tho subject of
ministerial courtesy, or what Is due ono
pastor to another, was discussed at length.
This Is n live question In the Methodist
church, and elicited considerable attention.
Inasmuch as tho pastors tiro constantly
changing, ltcv, W. W. Kvnns thought that
ono very Important thing for a pastor to do
nftcr ho has been removed from n plnco
was to cease to act ns n pastor, As this Is
not nlways done It causes trouble. Pas
tors visiting members of other churches
was considered by Ucv. D. Monroe as a
breach of ministerial clltuoltc. Tho rela
tion of a pastor to his people, nnd tho peo
ple's duty to their pastor, was also thor.
oughly ventilated. Tho audience enjoyed
the several sallies of wit which this dis
cussion called forth.
Tho second day's session was devoted to
tho further discussion of the pastornl work,
nnd tho work of tlio Sunday School. Rev.
Buckley spoko upon tho subject of
mutual helps nt revivals. He thought the
co-operation of Bovcrnl ministers would re
suit in an Increased vnrlety of thought,
giving greater elllelenoy ns the result. A
resolution, tho subject of which wns to
make a practical test of the matter, wns
presented nnd discussed, by Hov. P. 1J.
Kiddle, who thought that Kvangellsts
should not ho employed. Hev. W. W.
Evans and others made addresses upon tin
Itev. Z. Lloyd created n smile by the re-
mark that if part of the passengers on
board of tho ships ot Zion were thrown
overboard, sho would float moro easily.
The Interest manifested In this part of the
programme was such that tho time wns ex
tended, llev. J. U. Maun, II. C. Pnrdoe,
It. L. Armstrong, J. W. Buckley, It. E.
Wilson, Z. Lloyd nnd D. Monroe inado nd-
dresses pro and con, nftcr which tho con
vention voted In favor of trying tho matter
during the year.
The best method of lifting the benevolent
col'cctlon3 was discussed by Revs. II. L.
Armstrong, W. W. Bvans, It. Wilson nnd
Tho subject of mission work in unoccu
pied fields in the district took up the bal
ance ot the morning session. In the after
noon tho Pastor's rclntlon to the Sunday
School was defined by the Rev. II. C. Par
doe. Revs. II. B. Fortncr nnd D. F.
Styles spoke upon the quulillcatlons nnd
duties of tho Superintendent. Rev. Z. Lloyd
nnd others enlarged upon the same sub
ject. Rev. D. II. Shields, and J. U. Roto
called the attention of tho Convention to
the training ot children, as performed In
the home, the school and the church. Hev,
Lloyd favored the delegates with n
hymn, nfter which tlio work of tho teacher
was thoroughly discussed for tho remain
der of the afternoon's session. A fine es
say upon the subject of helps nt the Teach
er's disposal was read by L. B. Kllno M.
An effort was made to take up the topic
discussed Tuesday evening, viz: "Tlio
Church Lyceum and tho Chautauqua Lit
erary nnd Scientific circle, contrasted."
After mutual explanations nnd concessions
by a number of delegates who participated
in the discussion Tuesday evening tho con
vention thought it best to take up the reg
ular program. Both sessions of Wednes
day were occupied In discussing a question
peculiar to Methodism since Us beginning
that of classes and class meetings. This
church, we believe, is tho only one that
maintains the necessity of n sub-pastoral
relationship. Tho design of the class
meeting was the subject of an address by
Rev. J. II. Mortimer. Tho two problems
for solution in the church of to-day, were :
1st. How to secure attendance. 2nd.
How to secure efficient leaders. Rev. W.
W. Evans, J. Z. Lloyd, K. D. Lcidy, and
others, followed in short nddrcsscs. It
was very apparent that the convention was
of the opinion that tills peculiar feature of
.Methodism was a necessity ns n promoter
of spiritual life.
Rev. I. II. Torrence, Secretary of the
American Bible Society, nnd Rev. M. P.
Crosswait were introduced to tlio conven
tion. After which tlio duties of tho Lender

church at large, wero defined by Itev..D.

ItOW WILLIAM K. ItUSSKL WAS ORCSIIID
DEATH AT BUNnttllT.
Last Friday morning, says tho Sun bury
Daily, William 1C. Russcl, a brakemnn cm
ployed on tho Pennsylvania railroad, was
In D, II. Henry's restaurant, tho corner of
third and Chestnl streets, eating a lunch,
An empty engine was coming from tho
round houso througli Third street to get n
train In tho lower yard to go to Shamokln,
Mr. Russcl ran out of tho Third street
door of tho rcsturant to get on tho cnglno
to go down to tho yard. Clio locomotive
wbb backing down nnd was going rather
rapidly, Mr. Russcl had somo trouble to
cntah up to It nud stumbled In getting his
hold but recovering himself drow himself
up en the step. By that time tho engine
had reached tho Shnmokln crossing, and
the stSnal po9t that stands within two feet
of tho track struck Russcl and knocked
him off tho step ; ho seemed to bo suspend
ed In tho nlr for a moment nnd then to
dlvo headlong under tho rapidly revolving
wheels. Wm. Inhoff, who wns on the en
gine, shouted to him as he got on to "Look
out for the post," but It was loo Into. His
hands and head went under the wheels and
his brains were scattered over the ground,
his skull being mashed flue. Both arms
were cut off and his body mangled. Tho
entire necident happened in less tlmo than
It takes to toll It. Russol moved to Sun.
