This is the Sentence Imposed on Bev,
.Col. Danks by the Judges.
HE WAS PDBLICLY EEPRIMANDED.
The War Tcteran Receives His Punishment
With Deep Emotion.
WOEK OP DEAD PREACHERS PRAISED
In accordance with the verdict of guilty,
reached by the Danke court of inquiry last
Friday night, the militant pastor was yes
terday suspended from the active ministry
Jor one year and was publicly reprimanded
hy Bishop Foss.
During the morning hours Bev. Mr. Leak,
chairman of the "select number," as the
court of inquiry is called in the Methodist
Episcopal discipline, held several interviews
with Bishop Foss in relation to the
church law governing the punishment
in a case like that of Bev. Colonel Danks.
Soon after the opening of the forenoon ses
sion of the Conference, Bev. Mr. Leak
asked the Committee of Fifteen to retire.
It was alter 12 o'clock when the committee
completed its work and reported to the Con
ference. The finding of such a committee
is binding upon the Conference. There is
an appeal to the Court of Appeals, which
consists of three members each from the
Pittsburg, Brie, Eastern Ohio and West
Virginia Conferences, and irom that body
to the (ieneral Conference in 1892. The
following was the report presented by the
committee and read bv Secretary "Watklns:
Pittsbukg. October 12. 18S9.
The select number to wnooi was referred the
case ot John A. Danks beg leave to report as
follows: That having carefully considered the
evidence adduced, we find him polity of the
cliarge of immoral conduct in threatening the
life of a fellow man and in defamation of
character, and affix as a penalty that he be sus
pended from the ministry for one year and
also be reprimanded before the Conference by
AFPItOVED BY THE JUDGES.
The report was signed by T. J. Beak,
chairman, A. S. Hnuter, J. A. Ballantine,
J. B. Tavlor, G. W. Johnson, D. J. Davis,
John Conner, O. A. Emerson, G. T. Bev
noldi, J. F. Murray, B. E. Wilburn. B. E.
Edgell, J. E. Wright and O. P. H. Graham.
Bev. Mr. Walking, being detained in the
conference meeting, was not a signer of the
report Attached to the report, as a supple
mentary declaration, was the following:
The select number, in view of certain puDli
catlons in the daily press, desire to express
their conviction that Dr. T. J. Leak, the presid
ing offion, has conducted the management of
the ase In an entirely impartial manner
throughout, and that the connsel on both sides
have also discharged their duties properly.
This was intended as a rebuke to one of
the morning papers, which said that Bev.
Mr. Leak had strenuously labored to secure
the acquittal of Bev. Colonel Danks.
Bishop Foss called Colonel Danks to the
altar. The gray-haired veteran went for
ward with bowed head, his face revealing
deep emotion in his breast. The Bishop,
with a sad voice, said: "It must move
your heart to know thatJlO of your brethren,
free from prejudice and approved by your
self, have arrived at such a verdict I
soundly admonish you to watch against the
temper which led to that immorality. Lie
low at the feet of Jesus, and never again
allow such an action to be committed by
yon." Colonel Danks returned to his seat
near the rear, where he sat silently, with
bowed head. During the reading of the
report and the utterance of the admonition,
there was solemn silence in the assemblage.
COLLEGE PBESIDENTS TALK.
The Conference listened to addresses by
President Wheeler, of Allegheny College,
at Meadville, and President Marsh, of Mt.
Union College, at Alliance. The Commit
tee on Education recommended the appoint
ment of S. H. Nesbit and J. W. Baker as
representatives from the Pittsburg, tojneet
committees from the other patronizing Con
ferences, to prepare an amended charter for
Allegheny College so as to place all its de
partments under one management. Wm.
T. Braden, Peter M. Harman, Wm. H.
Kirkland, James E. Inskeep and F. B.
Stockdale were elected to deacon's orders.
Henry T. Wingman, late of the Beformed
Episcopal Church, was elected an elder.
The afternoon session of the M. E. Con
ference consisted of a memorial meeting.
The meeting was presided over by Dr. A.
L. Petty, and the session was largely at
tended by members of the church outside of
the visiting ministers. Obituaries were
read of Bev. Wesley Smith, Bev. James L.
Beed, Bev. Samuel G. Miller, Bev. John
H. Ebert. Bev. Thomas Storer, Eev. E. B.
Griffin, Eev. P. TT. McGowan, Mrs. Eliza

and days. Just tell us about the price you
want to pay and the pattern or color you
fancy and we will show you the finest and
best values ever offered by any Pittsburg
business house. This may seem rather loud
talk, but we have the goods to back up
what we say, and an assurance based upon
a sound knowledge is a very different thing
from mere brag or boast.
Acres of Overcoats!

tude of our stock, but when it comes to
the beauty of the styles, the perfection of
the fit, the faultlessness of the makes, no

you would bring your tailor, or some friend
who is a judge of clothes, along and let
him decide whether he has ever seen such
fine and fashionable Overcoats for so little
money in all his experience. Our light and
