"Not only Is It the duty of all parties distinctly to set their face against tb false and un-American principles thrust forward of late, but liuch aa I would regret th Identification ot any rellgloua body, aa such, with any political party, I am convinced that members of a relig ious body whose rights, civil and relig ious, are attacked, will naturally and unanimously espouse th cauae of the party which has the courage openly to avow the principles of civil and rella-leua liberty according to the constitution.

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. HB BELONGS TO IOWA.

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.

Warm Contest Over the Seat of Justice of Clatsop County. The old records of the city and county are most interesting documents. The moue or doing business In those days Is to the Individual ot the present age very laughable. In IfSi there was a warm rantMi to where the Seat of Justice" or ri county should be situated. Up to that yer tne town ot Lexington, which occu pied the present site of Sklpanon. was the county seat Being situated on the west side of Young's bay, It was rather inconvenient for the good folk of the settlement of Astoria, and the natives on this side wanted very much the distinc tion and convenience of beins- the countv seat 80. after a great deal of talkfnr rt agitation, it waa finally decided to settle tne matter in the usual way, and accord ingly a vote was taken. There were four contestants for the honor FWr Clatsop, Lexington. McClure's Astoria, and Shlvely's Astoria. Adair's Astoria. It appears, was not In the race. John McClure was very anvlous for the seat, and offered as an Inducement to donate a large tract to the county If the powers might be made to deal out Justice on his donation land claim. The vote was very close, and anm i ballots were cast In the county. It ta quite reasonable to suppose a few In diana were voted, but the dusty records fall to state this. McClure's Astoria won. having received nearly DO votes luar enough to get there. Lexington never got along very well after that, and was finally rubbed off the map. The first case In the circuit court was that of Gray vs. Welch, or vice versa. Following this were about a doxen suits. all being cases of trespass. That waa before the expression, "Keep off the grass!" was coined. The first Individual to declare hi. In. tentlon of becoming a cltisen of the United States was one Hugh Byrne, who.' cn November 4. 1850. forswore all alle giance to foreign ipower or potentate, and became a cltisen of this grand and glorious nation. The first ordinance tntrortuped in h legislative body of the town of Astoria was one governing the trafflo and sale ot liquors, and flxlmr the license tharsnn at $IW per annum. Soon after this, an other Ordinance was passed empowering th mayor to appoint a town watchman, and fixing hla compensation at $3 for every arrest he made. Those were the balmy days when the tittle .Indian boys used to put pins on the benches In the town hall, A glance at th old cltv rec ords shows that two small pages were sufficient to contain the doings of the council for two weeks. In those days they didn't Introduce an ordiance to ap propriate 1 out of the general fund for the benefit of Ketchum and Sklnnum. 1 They did some tall spelling then. The word "ordinance" used to be spelled "or- . dlance," and the word "accordance," "ac cord lance' ' accord Ina? to the minutes. Highest of all iu Leavening Power. Latest U. S.

FORBIDS SECRET SOCIETIES. 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 I 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 orders. 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 these benefits. 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 . . : BASEBALL SCORES.
