Cleveland, May TV Yesterday's ses
sion of the Methodist Episcopal conference
was the most important that lias been
held yet. The long cx- 'cted report of the
commit ree on episcopacy was presented
and adopted afier an animated debate,
which was interspersed with incidenrs of
dramatic and pathetic interest. The re
port provided for the retirement of the
venerable Bishops Bowman and Foster on
the ground of lion-etTo'ti veriest, declared
that the. time is opportune for the election
of a bishop of African d"s;-enr, and also
provided for the election of but two bish
ops to take the place of those who We're re
tired. The throe propositions in the re
port were a g rood to by a large majority.
The two retired bishops will be supported
by the book concern. Bishop Bowman is

When your stomach begins to trou
ble you, it needs help. The help it
needs, is to digest your food, and, un
til it gets it, you won't have any
peace. Stomach trouble is very dis
tressing, very obstinate, very danger
ous. Many of the most dangerous dis
eases begin with simple indigestion.
The reason is that indigestion (not
digestion, NOT-nourishment) weakens
the system rand allows disease germs
to attack it'. The antidote is Shaker
Digestive Cordial, strengthening, nour
ishing, curative. It curas inpigestion,
and renews strength and health. It
does this by strengthening the stomach
hv helninp- it to digest vour food. It
nourishes you. Shaker Digestive Cor-
wine, is perfectly harmlss and will cer
tainly cure all genuine stomach trouble.

Cleveland. May IN. The Methodist
Episcopal general conference spent all of
Saturday's session in a vain attempt to
elect one of the two bishops who are to le
chosen. Five ballots were taken, making
eight since the voting began. The only re
sult has been to narrow the contest down
to practically three candidates Dr. Buttz,
president of Drew Theological seminary;
Dr. C. C. MeCabe. the missionary sucro-
r.is;:oi ;'( )te;:.
tnrr. a:'al Tr. I'lavl Cre.n-.-ei. thf senior
a :e it of the Book Concern e.r Cineinnati.
Dr. Buttz and Dr. MeCabe are now the
leading cai'di' .i'o. and both ef them
rni.uh.: be i-leeted but for the feeling which
is growing that both bishops should not
come from the east.
The failure of any of the loading candi
dates to receive a two-thirds vote has in
spired talk to the effect that a motion will
be made to change the rules so as to pro
vide that the election shall be by a major
ity instead of a two-thirds. It is also said
that a motion will le made to elect three
instead of two bishops. It is not lelieved,
however, that either of these motions will
prevail. The friends of Dr. McCabe, Dr.
Buttz and Dr. Cranston are still confident
of the success of those candidates, and
much earnest electioneering was done yes
terday, and the contest is likely to prove

o'clock yesterday afternoon, wiping out
the entire western end of the town The
Lovs of life is appalling. The number of
missing is large, and includes a great
many children, and it is (pure probable
that the most of ihem are dead. At least
ufiy hou.si's are ;o:nlly wrecked. The

vacant Moore building, on the South
square, was u ili.e.l. lif teen colored people,
dead or dying, being placed there at "
o'clock las:: evening. All kinds of ve
hicles continued to come in with dead
bodies. Around the Moore building the
highest excitement prevails and the great
est ditiiculty is experienced in getting the
names of the victims and accurate reports.
The storm struck Sherman without
warning on the southwest corner of th
city and cleared a path lot yards wide
along the west end of tha town. Houses,
trees, fences and everything went before
the terrible force of the cyclone. The
negro part of the town suffered the most
severely. There are probably thirty
negroes killed. Ten bodies have lxvn
picked up in Post Oak creek.
From the point where the cyclone seems
to have lirst descended to where it su.l-

near the Nebraska line, late last evening,
destroying the Grand Island railroad
depot and elevator, and about twenty resi
dences. Twenty or twenty-five people
were wounded, several of whom will die.
Twenty families were rendered homeless,
losing everything they had. The cyclone
passed off towards Falls City and evidently
did great damage.
Fkaxktokt, Kan., May is. At 5 o'clock
last evening a terrific cyclone swept down
upon the town of Frankfort from the
southwest. Everything in the north and
west ends of the town was completely
wrecked. Probably three score of build

the best residences of the town were blown
to atoms. Reports coming in from the
country, where heavy damage has be-n
done, will materially swell the loss.

especially bu'lt throughout for this jour
ney, and is sr. id to be the fine-t that ever

ish of it are on a scale of magnificence in
harmony with everything else connected
with the coronation, for which the most
lavish expenditures have nor been spared,
even for the minutest details.
No speed record is attempted with tho
imperial train, the safety and comfort of
the august inmates leing the sole consid
erations. All traffic ceased over the line
before the departure of the train from
here, and no other wheels than those of
this train will run at the same time on the
tracks between here and Moscow.
The line letween St. Petersburg and
Moscow runs almost in a straight line for
the 4'K) miles. It is related that when the.
engineers designated to build the line ap
pealed to the czar for his orders regarding
the route he placed a ruler upon the map
and drew a straight line between the two
cities, thus solving the engineering diffi
culties with an autocratic hand.
The 400 miles of the line are guarded by
a double guard of soldiers. Every detail
of the journey and of the ceremonies in
Moscow have been arranged for months, an
army of officials having been engaged
upon the work in this city, amid much
stir and excitement, and also intense
anxiety. To facilitate their work wooden
models were constructed of all the various
buildings at Moscow at which the more
important ceremonies will be enacted,
exact in every proportion end relation, so
that the program of the coronation has
been precisely arranged and gone through
