METHODISTS CANNOT AGREE.
Possibility of a Deadlock Over the Elec
tion of Two Bishops.
Cleveland. May lS-The impression Is
becoming prevalent that a deadlock will
occur tn the Methodist Episcopal general
conference over the election of the two
new bishops. Five ballo.s were taken
today without a choice, and the election
Is apparently as far away as ever. It is
evident that there is a atrong element
in the conference opposed to the elec
tion of more bishops, and this element
is believed to have been voting tn a scat
hing way lor the purpose of precipitat
ing a deadlock. A motion was made to
day, without a second, to postpone fur
ther balloting Indefinitely, and It Is said
the motion will be renewed tomorrow.
The features of today's balloting were
the losses of Dr. Butta and Dr. Mc
Cabe, two of the strorurest candidates In
the race, and the surprising ruins of Dr.
Cranston, Dr. Hamilton and Dr. Neeley.
it is apparent that a combination hai
been formed by the friends of Drs.
Cranston hnd Hamilton, while the large
eastern contingent which Is opposed to
the election of either Butts or McCuble,
Is supporting Dr. Neeley.

CORONATION OF THE CZAR.

Scene of Splendor.
Moscow, May It The arrival of the
caar and csaiina this afternoon may be
snld to Inaugurate the festival season in
the celebration of thecoronatlon, and for
which the clly and whole empire ha
made months of preparation. Their
majesties arrived In their special tram
at Smolensk station at I JU this after
noon. Grand Duke Serglus, uncle of the csar,
and governor-general of Moscow, with a
brilliant ult of officers, waited th ar
rival of the imperial party at the station.
The appearance of the train was the
signal for an outburst of cheering and
the military band played the regimental
march aa the train entered th station
and the oar left tils carriage.
The passage of th party through the
streets waa greeted with enthusiasm, the
streets being lined with great crowd ot
spectators. On of the special features
of the present event In Moscow Is th
doing away with the custom of employing-
special constables In citlseraf dress
to guard the rout of the csara coming
and going from the city. On general oc
casions the route of the oar's progress
Is guarded by a doubt line of military,
a double rank of civilian In ordinary
police uniform, th police or the de
fense department, and detective police,
doing away with the sworn civilians, and
will give a better opportunity for th
oar's subjects at large to witness his
passage to the coronation.

Bishop Wigger Creates Consternation by
a Peremptory Order to the Faithful.
Bishop Wigger, or New Jersey, haa
caused a sensation among thousands ot
Catholic members of the various secret
societies In the state by the emphatic
wanting he gave them In the course of
an address delivered last Wednesday am
St Mary's church, Elisabeth, where ha
was confirming a number of young men.
The bishoD'a address was iimn th
j duties of young; men In respect to their
laitniuiness to the church. He took ua
the question of secret societies, espe
cially Freemasonry. He reminded has
bearers that the holy father had de
nounced them and had forbidden Catho
lics to Join them.
The reasons, he said, given by his hoB
ness In denouncing; Freemasonry and
other societies, whose members are bound
to secrecy, were familiar to moat Cath
olic. Catholics, he said, are forblddea
not only to associate themselves with
Freemasonry, but most all other secret
In all secret organizations, the stshap
said, the candidate was required to Inks
an oath upon the Bible never to dlvutga
any of the worktnara of the order. The
church held that no person had a right
to make any unconditional promise ot
that character. How does a candidal
know, he said, when he takes the oath
and thereby makes so unconditional a.
promise, that he or she may be com
manded to commit some Infamy?
In conclusion, the bishop not only for
bade Catholics to become Freemasons or
member of other secret societies, hot
gave them to understand emphatically
that those who did so would be excom
municated. As this interpretation of tho recent
edict from the pope regarding secret so
cieties was so different from that gener
ally understood, which allowed members
of secret beneficial societie ' to retain
their membership. It haa caused great un
easiness among the members of various
societies. To enforce this warning woukt
be to compel thousands of Catholics
who are carrying life Insurance and sick
benefits In the various beneficial socletits
In New Jersey that are secret organisa
tions working under rituals to throw up
As many of these men have been meow
bers for years and are now physically
unable to pass the examination neces
sary to be admitted into any other form
of Insurance, much uneasiness is felt by
the families and th men who come un
der this edict of the pope. Efforts will
be made to secure an exception In favor
of several societies which, while secret,
have tor their main object Insurance and
sick benefit 1 . . :
