Reynolds, Louis E. Van Horn. Dr. Hard offered a resolution to be presented to the general conference. The resolution was unanimously adopted.' It read: Whereas, All the benevolent collection! so important that the rates of giving to each Is carefully defined by the blBhops, the gt nerul committee, the presiding eld ers and the district committees, and Whereas, The growing sentiment In the church is ap.alnst the enforced require ment of pastors to report some benevolent collections on the floor of the conference because the discipline requires the bishop to demand It and since other collections are unreported In public; therefore Rraolved, That we memorialise the gen eral conference to strike out of the disci pline all that requires any paftoro report his collections on the floor of any annual conference, leaving the manner of mak ing any nnd all reports with the confer ences. . . This does not affect any disciplinary provision now existing (or securing statistical and benevolent .reports re quired for publication in , the, annual minutes. ....... THE BALLOT.

Best by Keeping Out of Sight During ' the Presidential Campaign. Washington, April 5. Secretary Car lisle this evening gave out the following letter to Chairman Long of the Demo cratic central committee of Kentucky, declining to enter the contest fox the Democratic, nomination for the presi dency: Washington, April 4. Charles R. Long, Chairman Committor, Louisville, Ky. My Dear Sir: Your favor of March 30, In which you say In substance that many of my friends In Kentucky and elsewhere desire me to become a candidate before the approaching national Democratic convention for nomination for the office of president and requesting me to give, some authoritative or detlnite expression on the subject, wss duly received and has been maturely considered. Many communications upon the same subject and of similar import have been received from friends In dieffrent parts of the country, and while very grateful for these numerous expressions of confi dence and esteem upon the part of my Democratic fellow cit liens, I have not been able to reach the conclusion that (tie existing conditions require me to comply with their requests by authoris ing them to announce me as a candidate for the presidential nomination. While I feel a profound Interest for the welfare of my party, I am much more concerned about Its declaration of principles than In Its selection of candidates, because then In my opinion its failure or success at the election, as well as Its capacity for use ful service to the country during the future, depend upon the position It takes or omits to 'take upon the public questions now engaging the attention of the people, and especially the questions affecting the monetary system of the country and character and amount of taxation to bo Imposed upon our cttlxens. Its position upon this and other subjects having been agreed upon and clearly and distinctly announced, the convention ought to have no difficulty In selecting an acceptable candidate who will fairly rep resent Its views, and In order that, its deliberations may be embarrassed as lit tle as possible by the contentions of rival aspirants and 4helr friends, 1 think- my duty to the party will be best performed by declining to participate in a contest for the nomination. The obligations assumed When I accept ed my present official position required me to devote my entire attention to the pubhY' Interests committed to my charge, and I -shall continue to ilischHrgu the duties Im posed upon me .to the best of my ability and in such manner as will In my Judg ment most certainly promote the true Interests of the country, and If In tho opinion of my fellow Democrats In Ken tucky my services entitle me to their commendation and approval, I would re gard their endorsement of my public course as an ample reward for the little I have been able to aceompllsh In behalf of honest administration and a sound inancial policy. With many thanks for your kind let ter, I am Very truly yours, J. G. Carlisle. STRIKE THREATENED. Tho Discharge, of Mine Grlpinan of tho .Metropolitan Street Railway Company May Causa a Tie-up on the Lines- New York, April 6. The danger of a strike on the street railway lines of this city, 'which are owned by the Metropolitan Street Railway company, because of the discharge of nine grip men and a conductor, wns by no means lessened today. The railway employes persist . in the assertion that the men were discharged because of their activ ity In the affairs of the local branch of the Amalgamated Association of Street Railway Employes of America, notwithstanding that the Metropolitan company's officials statement that the reason for dismissing the gripmen and conductor was that they had disobeyed the rule prohibiting them from enter ing a saloon during working hours. There was some very determined talk in and around Clarendon hall this af ternoon by employes of the railway com pany and it was declared that unless the discharged men werei reinstated there would certainly be a strike. At the meeting of the Central Labor union In Clarendon hall this afternoon a delegation, consisting of one employe rrom eacn oi tne reads of the Metro politan system, werep resent, and they asked the privilege of the floor. This was accorded them in executive Bes sion. The spokeman stated the griev ance and asked for sympathy and ad vice. The reporters were Informed af ter the meeting that speakers for the Central Labor union had counselled the railway men to move very slowly and had very decidedly thrown cold water upon the eagerness of many of them to strike If the Metropolitan company fail ed to fully comply with their demands. C . w. Archibald and Thomas McCul lum, of Philadelphia, who came to this city and organized the local branch of the National Amalgamated association. said today that there was nothing "new to be said until after consultation with William D. Mahon, president of the Na tional association, who, they expected would shortly arrive in this city from Detroit. It waa rumored this afternoon that officials of the Metropolitan company had signified their willingness to rein state four of the men discharged, but it was stated that it was not likely the members of the local union would be satisfied with this.

On Friday after noon Harrison Darrow, a farmer liv ing about two miles east of Montro,, felled a huge Maple tree.

SO.nxOMAXCY AXD MESMERISM The White Mabatmas Create Lively In terest in Rochester Why Bald la.' Doa Not Get Rich by Means of Mrs. Baldwin's Gift. Rochester, April 5. Professor Samrl S. Baldwin and his wife, self-styled the "White Mahatmas," have been enliven ing Rochester for a week and the great est curiosity has been aroused by their performances. To a Democrat and Chronicle reporter Baldwin said: "Mrs. 1'ul'Jwln Is really In the hypnotic state when she gives the answers to the ques tions and the descriptions that seem to you so marvelous." Professor Baldwin explained that he has no religious faith further than a be lief in an all-pervading force which he calls the life-spirit, and positively dis claims any belief In supernatural or spiritualistic manifestations. He claims simply to be a clever deceiver, with the right to resort to any trickery or chi canery to delude his spectators. He la however, a firm believer In hypnotism and the startling results that may be attained by It. On the other hand he was yesterday free to confess that even after years of careful study of mesmer ism, hypnotism, clairvoyance and kin died subjects, he understood only first principles, that he observed many phe nomena for which he was at a loss to account. ; Then continuing; with a laugh he said: "So you didn't know where 'you were at,' during the performance? There are a good many hundred thousand peo ple In different parts of the globe that have shared the feeling. Most of the re sults that I attain are brought about throughdeception and slelght-of-hand, but not all. I utterly disclaim any faith In spiritualism whatever, not that It Is may not be real, but because in the course of my forty years of experience which has brought me Into contact with many of the prominent so-called me diums of the last half century. I have never seen a manifestation that could not be duplicated by the skillful use of purely natural agencies. I have wit nessed the almost miraculous feats of the eastern Mahatmas, the Indian Yogll and Gooroos, the Gompas of Thi bet, the Kennlahs of Borneo, tne raktrs, the Zu u witch doctors, and I don't know what not. and can now with the proper apparatus, I think, perform them again; at any rate 1 Know now tney are done. MMR BLAVATSKY. Then there Is or was Madame Bla- atsky. Almost every day of my life I am asked for my opinion or her. nut wny i should say this to a stranger I don't know. for. really, from a financial point of view and we are all after the dollars and cents I find that It Is not wise to commit myself, for many believers in spiritualism and scoffers at hypnotism do not like it. I am simply an enter tainer and claim the right to use any moans to accomplish my ends without being discourteous, and explain what I think will further my pleasure-giving ends. But. to return to Madame Blavatsky, hesitate to express myself strongly lest I be misunderstood and it be fan cled that I am attacking her because she has passed Into another state long since, and can not refute my declara tions. I have no wish to vilify her. On the contrary she was a woman for whom I had the greatest admiration, Her genius and ability were so un doubted that no one could come In con tact with her without being Impressed by her power, but she was from birth an enigma to nerseir anu ner rnenos. to me personally Madame Blavatsky was a most complex character. I feel quite sure that within her own mind she deemed herself absolutely honest. I am quite sure also that she thoroughly be lieved In theosophicaj doctrine about which she wrote bo much, and to which she sought to convert the world. I am fully convinced that she possessed ab normal clairvoyant, mesmeric and mag netlo powers, and that she believed she possessed far greater powers than she really did. I believe that many of her clairvoyant and hypno-mognetlc mani festations wore genuine. But I am not ait all sure that her physical manifesta tions, such as the precipitation of let ters and the production of astral bodies, were genuine phenomena, she was self-deceived deceiver. It Is only fair to sny that I believe whatever she did do to deceive her friends was not done from sordid motives, nor did she deceive deliberately. My Idea Is that Madame Blavatsky was an enthusiast and In her own particular subject perhaps a mono maniac. Her work was done simply for the purpose of winning converts to the- osophy, B'hI she believed the Indirect means jiistinnhio, though in later years, when many of the tricks were shown up, she regretted having resorted to this method.

There are many side wires that have to be pulled to make what little know of the subject clear. Perhaps was In danger of being side-tracked for a time, though. I am so full of the sub lect that I could talk all night. "It Is only a few years ago, not more than twenty-five or thirty, at the most, when almost every one sneered at mes. merism and hypnotism as being merely terms expressing a peculiar kind, or class, of humbug. Now almost every person of any Intelligence admits the existence of hypnotism and mesmeric forces. It Is only a few years ago that nine hundred and ninety-nine medical and scientific men out of every thousand scoffed at these forces, as being purely hypothetical and fancied powers, which some misguided cranks imagined that they possessed. Now they all unreserv edly admit the reality of hypnotic and mesmeric powers and conditions. No one but an arrogant Ignoramus will pre tend at this day that hypnotism is fake. Hypnotism and mesmerism are not identical, though they have man points In common but If I go Into that. you will never get an answer to your question. FOUR DEGREES. "There are four stage or degrees of the mesmeric control. First the par tial degree. In which the subject Is Im perfectly under the power of the opera tor. In this staire most of the mental faculties retain all or a great portion of their activity. Of the physical senses, the vision Is unusually weak ened or Impaired. The eye Is no longer under the control of the subject. Some times the sense of hearing Is also af fected. In the second, or sleep stTste, the mesmeric control is complete as far Continued on Page t.
