In the New York Methodist Preachers'
Meeting yesterday, the Rey. Dr. An
drews presented resolutions indorsing
the report of the majority of the Book
Committee, in their newt Investigations.
These resolutions Balled forth consider
ble discussion, in which Rev. Drs. Ridge
way, Foster, Curry, TllLmy,Crawford,
and Messrs. Hermanos, Taylor, Ring,
and others participated. The general ex
pression was that the allegations of fraud
had not been and could not be sustained,
and that the verdict of ten against three
was sufficiently strong in itself to de
mead approval. The publication of the
minority report, and of Dr. Shires' paper,
in the Baltimore American, were denre
cited, and declared to have been 11legitl
mately ace uLred *and made known, and
that the Committee had their minority
report ready to be gent to the General
Conference, together with that of the
majority. The action.of the Baltimore
Conference In censuring the majority
and withholding Sunday School Union
fends, was also commented upon as un
just and hank, there being no proof
either before Confgrenoe or before the
community to sustain the allegations of
fraud, and alter careftil Investigation the
Book Committee had failed to nod proof.
Their action is final arid can only be re
versed by the General Conference. Her
mance moved to lay the ”wieolutions on
the table, which was lost, and they wore
adopted by a large majority.
The unprecedented atilt 'by Miss Della
W. Moore against John 8: Bonnet!, to
recover five thousand dollars damages
for alleged slander, was ohncluded year
terday. Borman claims that he was
married to - Miss Moore on the 26th of
November, 1884, by the late Rev. Dr.
McClintock, of the Si. .ranl Methodist
Church. On Friday nearly all the testi
mony was taken, aad during the trial a
copy of the church record of their mar
riage was produced In the evidence.
Notwithstanding all this, ther with
numerous letters written by Mina Moore
to Bonnet', claiming him to be her Deer
Jack, Dearest Darling, and other pet
names, she ewers she had never been mar
ried to him, and that she was never In Bt.
Paul's Church with him. The &andirons
words complained of are that Somali
said: ..She is either my wither miatreas."
Miss Moors's counsel recognize the
church record, but their main point is,
that the lady to whom Boanell was mar
ried upon the 26th' of November, at Bt.
Paul's Church, and giving the name of
the plaintiff, was some other than this
Della Moore. • Dr. McClintock, the offi
ciating clergyman, deposed and declared
positively that he married Bonnet', but
could not tell for indigo whether the
plaintiff waa the person to Whom he was
married or not, but had a faint mallet,
Lion of her features. After Judge Spen
