The Methodist eonferenee met for devotional eervicea at 8. o'clock yeaterday morning. Dr. Kean conducted the meeting. The expoaition of acriptnre and exhortationa were very helpful. Under auoh faithful appeals the religious atatua of tbe membera waa greatly intensified. Alter a very earneat altar service Biabop Fitzgerald took the chair and opened the baeinesa session. Tbe roll of absentees waa called. The atatietical aecretary called tbe roll of those who failed to hand in their reports yesterday. Rev. E. S. Chaae, presiding elder oi San Diego, waa called. Hia character waa passed and he read hia annual report. Hia diatrict haa suffered much beoause of tbe drought, yet there was a very fait showing for the stringent times. The following effective elders had their character pauses and reported: W. Q. Cowan, F. D. Mathes, F. M. Warrington, C. A. Holden, J. A. Wachob, Wm. Pitteoger, N. J. Barton, •Ed. Huekiu, F, 8. Woodcock, F. D. ABhbangh, J. B. Green, O. L. Libby, E. J. Inwood. J. C. Healy. W. W. Baily, W. A. Wright, 0. A. Westenberg, E. O. Mclntier, J. Pitteuger, L. M. Hartley, F. L. Morrill, W. S. Lincoln, L R. Lovejoy. , E. S. Little, a missionary In China, Bent a communication which was read by the secretary. His character was passed. Mrs. D. W. Welch requested that the pastors meet tbe secretary oi the Woman's Foreign Missionary society and receive their voucher for all money paid over. A number of motions were made on the mode of reporting the cash aud supplies. After much discussion, tbe present method of reporting cash separately and the supplies on another page of tbe annual minutes, was adopted. The queation of location of the conference for next year waa taken up. and Simpson church, Los Angeles and San Bernardino were put in nomination, and after some discussion the queation was poatponed to a later date. Dr. John Thomson, agent for the American Bible society, was introduced and represented his work. He has been agent for tbe society for 21 years. Tbis was one of the best addresses on that aubject made before the conference since its organization. The Bible society is inter-denominational, and it is increasing in magnitude and efficiency. The question concerning the admission to conference on trial was taken up. The committee on examination said they were ready to report. Brother Fretz was reported absent, attending ichool. Brother Ward wae also in the east attending school. W. S. Germain was before the committee. His standing was below the required percentage. His presiding elder eaid he was a faithful minister, and he moved that he be continued on trial, and required to bring up his studies next year. W. S. Miller was continued on trial and required to bring up all atndiea at next conference.
Rev. Fretzwas continued on trial. Rev. Willard Bott was passed to tbe studies of second year. J. P. Widney paßsed bis examination, and was advanced to the studies of tbe second year. Rev. W. A. Wright presented some statements concerning the accounts of the Southern - California Advocate tbat was suspended at the beginning of last year. Tbe acconnts were in great confusion because of three changes of publishers during the year. Rev. A. M. Hough called for a meeting of tbe publishing committee. He addressed the conference at some length and showed tbat the paper was continued without any financial responsibility on the part of tbe conference or committee. Rev. J. B. Green presented a resolution pledging the pastors to collect delinquent subscriptions to tbe Advocate. Rev, G. VV. Henning, a lormer editor of the Advocate, was permitted to make an explanation, which he did with aome feeling. Dr. J. F. Masters waa Introduced and addressed tbe conlerence. He said that a great danger threatened the missionary work. There are open doora in all lands and plenty oi willing sonls to enter them as missionaries. There are 72,000 converts in north China alone and great numbers in other misalon fields. The diaaater ia tbe danger ot retrenchment on the part of the miaalonary oommittee. The speaker said: "No, it muat not be." The workers are in the very presence of victory. We must ad-, vance and not retrench. The Beoretary took up the reading again of the letter of Rev. Little, a missionary in China. He set forth the dangers and persecntions which are common and the great sufferings which result. The writer eaid tbat when the worst should come he would send away hie wife and children and stand at his post as long as possible. It waa a very graphic description of the country and its dangerous condition. He announced the death nf Rev. John Wallev. a mem-

ber of the Southern California conference. The committee on memoirs was instructed to prepare a suitable memoir on tbe deceased. Dr. McClean addressed the conference and invited them to hold their Sunday services in Simpson tabernacle, it being the largest and moat commodious auditorium in the city of Los Angeles. Dr. J. W. Campbell moved that the conference go to the Simpson churob on Sunday evening, wbich was carried. Dr. McClean aeked that tbe evening service conducted by Dr. McKean also be held at Simpson tabernacle, wbich was ao ordered. After the appointment of committees the conference adjourned with tbe benediction by Dr. John Thompson.
Rev. J. W. Morris of Paso Robles presided. After singing Jeans Saves, by tbe eongtegation, Rev. Reynolds of Pasadsna led in prayer. B. N. Johnson oi Fresno district waa elected secretary. Flmer £. Hall of Ventura read a constitution and by-lawa (or the organization of a conference Epworth league. Mr. J. N. Clark waa elected conference president. Mrs. P. H. Bodkin wae elected secretary. A resolution was offered by J.N. Clark that the Epworth leagues be requested to stand ready to nasiet in the missionary deaconess work. The resolution was adopted. The president then called for tboae to come forward who were on the programme for addreeaes. Lincoln Canwell waa invited forward to make tbe opening prayer. Mra. J. D. Bnrcb. the firat speaker, bad for a subject Tbe Epworth League, What It Has Done and What it Can Do. The references to the organization of the league and the welding together for eervicea of tbe youth of Methodism were very well choaen. The apeaker believed that the world had no patent right on the amuaementa and enjoyments that Epworth Leaguers could enjoy without sin. The hope of tbe church is in its leagues and the junior leagues were very highly commended. The paper was warmly applauded. It bristled with strong points. Miss May Kimball read a paper on The Unchurched Multitude and Our Attitude Towards Them. Tbe multitude ia great. Shall we let them perish 7 What can we do to cave them ? Talk about religious troths to tboae around you and tell them it is blessed to walk with Jesus. Wear an Epworth pin wherever you go, hut without a long face. The paper mads many to resolve to be more faithful to their pledge and did much good. Tbe bighest standard of new testament experience and life, was tbe theme of Mrs. J. B, Hollaway of Grangeville. The paper was direct and careful ly prepared. The highest standard nan only bs attained by attention to the ordinary duties as the reading of the words, the use of prayer, public and private. Tbe thoughta were very inetructive and helpful.
Mre. Moffatt rendered one ot her beautiful solos with tbe large congregation joining in tbe chorus. Tbe league as a training sohool (or the church, was enlarged upon and illustrated by E. E. Hall ol Ventura. The address was clear, brief and logical and was loudly applauded. Mr. Jeffry, the chorister of Firat church, sung a sweet song about Christian duty and privilege. Bishop Fitzgerald arrived a little late, but consented to speak. "Why have a young people's denominational society?" was tbe question asked and treated. The same reasons that would be given for a denominational Sunday school or a denominational church. Union institutions do not succeed well. Tbe stronger shonid have the ascendancy. The Lord's prayer for unity has been answered, although there are many departments. This point was beautifully illustrated by referring to the army, with its cavalry, infantry and artillery. These aro all one, and for the defense of the nation. They are not antagonists, but workers in tbe same great campaign. The Methodists, coming by land, and the Baptists, coming by water, unite in saying the enemy must go down. He would not have them in one denomination today if he could. They work better in their several places. The Epworth leaguers are to be tbe officials of the church in tbe future, and so must be skilled apprentices when tbey are needed. Let ub stand for our church, and that does not exclude fraternity. We work to exalt our Christ, and bid God-spued to all. Rev. S. A. Kean, D. D., took charge of the services, although hia hour was already almost gone. He Boon had the merry, reatlees congregation well in hand. His expositions were more inspiring and helpful than usual. EDUCATIONAL ANNIVERSARY, Bey. P. F. Bresee presided in tbe evening and Bey. Geo. Cochran, D. D., dean of McClay College of Theology, led in prayer. Mre. Westlake sang very effectively a pathetic solo. Dr. Breaee, in introducing Dr. Phillips, dean of the college of liberal arte, said that the board of regents congratulated themselves and the natrons that they bad been able to induce such an able educator to take charge of the educational work. Dr. Phillips eulogized and emphasized ths high position of the teacher. He said that he started in Pennsylvania and moved to Miahigan, and to a better Illinois, lowa, ICansaa, and finally to a far better California.
The church cannot afford to permit her young people to be educated in the school of indifference. The Christian ohnrcb must make ber work of education ao attractive and efficient that her children will not be attracted by the faeoination of the secular schools. We want an institution that will have the glory of God on every test tube, and

reapect the teachings of the sacred scriptures. The culture of the heart is superior to the culture of tbe mind. The ailent influences, the culture of the heart, tbe inspiration of the surroundings that make strong men are more abundant in tbe atmosphere of the Christian schools. The denominational Bchools are favorable for the cultivation of the intellect. Tbe churches can establish and maintain inatitutiona that will develop independent, profound thinkers. A great institution ia possible. The Methodiat univeraity at West Loa Angelea needa students and support wbich tbe speaker said he believed the people of California would furnish. Dr. Phillips is a stranger to many of the membera of the conference, bnt they certainly telt that tbe new dean has strength and ability to conduct tbe educational interests of the conference. He has a noble purpose to make the school one of tbe best in the denomination. Dean Randall, of Cbaffey college, made tha next address. He is very successful and popular in hia very important position. Cbaffey is loyal to the university. It Bends a great many studenta to the university. He thought it waa necessary to bave the annex ol a preparatory college. Yea, but let it be in Ontario. Cbaffey ia well furnished for training students for college. If you doubt it ask our students. Fourteen professors, enthusiastic in their work, are making their Impress upon tbe students committed to their care. Dean Randall pleaded well for his college. Tbe school ia in good bands and justly merits the patronage of the public. Dr. J. P, Widney, the president of the university, was introduced. He complimented the work of the schools at West Lob Angeles. Tbey have cost a great deal, and they still stand after the panic has borne down mercantile, banking and other institutions. The equipment for the year has not been surpassed in tbe history of the institution. The faculty need the co-op-eration of tbe members of the conference and the patrons of the university. The educational anniversary waa pronounced a grand success.
THE WEEK OF PRAYER. Ihe Last Heeling Held Yesterday by tha Y. W. C, A. The laat meeting of the week of prayer wae largely attended veaterdayat the Y. W. C. A. rooms. Mra. J. M. C. Marble waa in obarge of the service. The opening muaio was, Pass Me Not, 0 Gentle Saviour. Mrs. Marble read in Mark, 4th chapter, from the 14th to the 18th verses. Prayers were offered by Mrs. Marble and Mr. C. S. Mason of the Paoifio Gospel union. The tonics for the day were: The World'a Y. W. C. A., by Miaa Morae, and Tbe Los Angeles Y. W. 0. A., by Rev. Burt Eates Howard. Miss Morse made a most comprehensive statement of the work in the broad sense tbat the title indicates. From a band of girls in an Illinois college who were longing to do more efficient work for the Master than had yet bsen conceived, and who hardly knew what steps to take at first, it bas grown to be wide-reaching, and is yet only in the infancy of its usefulness. "From tbe college prayer meeting it went on, fashioned on tbe same plan as the Young Men's Christian association, until now there is an international organization which includes the United States, Canada, New Brnnswiok and Nova Scotia. There are associations in many other countries of the world, and in London has just been installed tbe first world's Y. W. C. A. secretary." Mias Morse read a letter from India staring the case very earnestly. In Madras, perhaps, tbe most important need just now is felt of a strong worker. Might it not be that God wonld choose some one from Los Angelea to till it? The closing thought of the address waa tbat "our thought, our prayer and our endeavor will reach to the uttermost parts of tbe earth." Mr. Howard then spoke of the work to be done by tbe Y. W. 0. A. in Loa Angeles, lie said: "What can the Y. W. C. A. do for Loa Angeles? We are living in strong tunes when there is going on a mighty conflict between rigbteousnen and the forces of Satan which are gathered together to overthrow holiness, truth and Christianity. The Y. W. C. A. might be perfectly equipped as regards means; might have beautiful rooms, useful classes, a successful outlook in all its branches, but ii it lacked the 'one thing needful' it could not do for Los Angeles the good intended. It must have the spirit of God dominating its every impulse and then it might hope to succeed in the great conflict." In closing, he said : "There is a great work in Los Angeles for tha Y. W. C. A. 1 am anxious that it shall be a burning light for Jesus Christ. Tbat tbe workers can oome to it for strength and from it go out into the world for service." Miss Morse eaid that some had doubted the wisdom of tbe noon hour for these services at first, but the result had been most gratifying, and many new friends were the consequence uf the work of the week. She hoped many more would join and become useful membera. Paaß It On waa aung in cloaing.
YOUTHFUL TRAMPS. A lios Angelea Yunugeter Held In Oakland ■ Tha father of Charlee Cunningham may possibly be wondering where his wandering boy is at, and it might be news to him to know that the young man is in Oakland. It was last Monday that yonng Charles Cnnningham of this city and young Koy Whittierof San Diego were arrested in Weßt Berkeley for vagrancy and taken to the Oakland jail. They are 14 years old. A Berkeley constable found them waodering around the town. Taken before an Oakland police judge they said tbat they had started out to see the world. . Whittier started out first and made his way from San Diego to Ban Francisco. Then he worked back as far as Los Angelea, ran across young Cunningham, tbey amalgamated and left for tbe north again aboard a brakebeam. Young Cunningham stated to the judge tbat his mother is dead and his lather has no idea of bis whereabouts. He had never been in jail before, he said, nnd had never before been outside of Los Angeleo. The Oakland authorities are holding the youthful tramps for aome one to call for them.

DID SHE MAKE ANOTHER WILL?
Contestants in the Pratt Contest on Their Mettle. They Will Try to Prove a Will Made in 188 i.
A Day Tnkan ITp In tha Discussion or Objagtlona—General MansOald on tha Stand — Adjaarned to Next Taesdey.
Tbe taking of testimony in the Pratt will contest is fraught with great difficulties. Every little while an objection is sprung wbich brings from one to ten of the lawyers in the case on their feet, end by the time they get through quoting decisions everybody, except the man in the gallery with the camera, is tired. Such was tbe case yesterday. The jury waa excased in the morning to diecuss a point, and in the afternoon wbb allowed to be present while a point was diacnaaed. There were some interesting matters presented by the contestants yesterday, tbe principal thing being an offer to prove tbat Mrs. Annie Pratt made a will in 1884, which revoked tbe will of 1881, and, as counsel contended, buried it too deep for tbe codicil of 1885 ever to revive it. The day passed without anybody seemingly getting hot nnder the collar, and confining themselves strictly to business.' Mr. Hanlon, when court convened, said that he wanted to put on two witnesses out of their order, as to the value of the property, they living at a diatance and wishing to leave. 1 Mr. Alex Campbell said there waa no allegation as to value and it waa not relevant. Judge Olark thought it might be necessary. Mr. Wbite farther said tbat counsel might agree aa to the value in 1881, but not at tbe time the codicil was made, and after conference by counsel for contestants Mr. G. L, Hamlin of Chico, Butte county, partner of Senator Perkins in the stock buainess, was called.
Mr. Hamlin resided on a ranch near Cbico since 1861 until three years ago, when be moved into the town. He was familiar with the Pratt property, and land values thereabouts from 1884 to tbe present time. lie considered the value of the Pratt land $35 an acre. No man could make a dollar raising wheat on tbe land at the present price, if the land waa given to him. In 1881 be thought tbe land was worth about $40 an acre. There ia a tract of 17.000 acres adjoining that Senator Stanford bought 10 or 12 yeara ago and gave to the university afterwards. The cross examination ot the witness was brief.
R. M. Tinner of Oakland testified tbat be resided in Butte county from 18(38 to 1872. He bas a ranch there and he ko6b there every month and oitener. His land is adjoining the Prati properly. He thought tbe land could not have been sold in June, ISBS, for Irom |3 Ito $35 an acre. It was worth more in 1881. Wbeat depreciated after that. Mr. Turner saw Mrs. Pratt, after her son's death, on the Oakland ferry and noticed a decided change in her. She was bright and talkative before that time, but he noticed she was troubled and did not talk with her very much. Mrs. Urace Goncher of Los Angeles, a charming woman, testified that she knew Mrs. Pratt in 1887 and 1888. She knew Mrs. Goodspeed and the varions members of the family. She visited Mrs. Goodsaeed's home. She saw Mrs. Pratt iv 1892, when she was on her wedding trip, and once later. The first time it was in tbe presence of the nurse and the second time in Mre. Goodspeed's presence. Objections being made to tbis testimony, the same as to the nuree girl's, Miss Gaffney, that it was too remote from tbe date of the supposed execution of tbe codicil in 1885, the examination was suspended, the jury was excused until 2 o'clock and tbe counsel argued tbe point until the noon hour. At 2:30 o'clook, upon tbe oonvening .of court, Judga Clark bad not come to a decision on tbe points raised and witnesses were introduced by the contestants upon another branch of the case. Gen. John Mansfield was called to tha stand and testified as follows: "I reside in this city and have for 20 years. I knew Mrs. Annie Pratt. She was at my house prior to her death two years and eight months." "During that time did yon transact any business for her?" "I did." "Did you transact general business for her during that time?" "Only apportion of the time." "Did ehe have any papers and documents?" "I had some in my possession." "Were you noting for her in a business way ?" "I was up to the beginning of guardianship proceedings, September 10, 1893." "From what source did you get the papers?" "Some from ber and some from Mrs. Cross. I did not attend to all of her business. Such as she had here, and when she applied to me." "In what capacity ?" "November 14, 1892, she executed to me a power of attorney." "During tbe time Mrs. Pratt was at your house has there come into your possession or control any other will than the one offered for probate?" Judge Silent —We object, upon the ground that it is directed to showing a loat will, and no such allegation has been made. The objection was withdrawn, and General Mansfield answered: "There has not."
"You have no such paper in your possession ?" "I have not." "Did you make any search for papers?" "I have. I found nothing in the shape of a will. The one before the court was given me some years ago. I made a perfect search. Mrs. Pratt died at my bouse and had her personal effects there." Charles Mansfield, son of General Mansfield, was sworn: "I saw Mrß. Pratt before her death. I bave had none of ber papers in my possession. I bave no knowledge of any will except the one filed in this case." Mrs. John Mansfield was sworn: "Mrs. Pratt was at my house before her death. I was with her constantly. Her psrßonal etfectß were at my house. I looked over all her papers aud found no other will than tbe one now before the court. I have no knowledge of any other will." Mrs. Louise G. Cross, being eworn, testified that she was Mrs. Pratt's sister and was in Los Angeles one week before Mrs. Pratt died, tSbe did not
make any particular aearcb nf her effect!. She brought some papers with ber when ehe came. There wae no will among them. Bhe aaw no other will, nor had she any such document now or knowledge of the whereabouts of any auch will. Mra. Pratt waa at her home before coming to Loa Angelea. Mra. Lucy Goodapesd, daughter of Mrs. Pratt, waa called. Her examination wae very brief. She testified : "I live at Ban Franciaco. I waa a daughter of Mrs. Pratt." "State whether you have a will of the deceased in your possession." "No, sir; I do oot know of any other will than tbe one offered for probate." Attorney Hanlon was called by Mr. White and testified that he had lived in San Francisco nearly all his life. He transacted business for Mrs. Pratt. He ceased to do so some time in 1838. "In 1884 at her request did yon attest a document for her?" Mr. Silent—We object. What is the object? Mr. White—l have no objection to stating the purpose. It ia to show tbat in 1884 Mra. Pratt executed a will revoking all other wills, and was delivered by him to one of tbe devisees in tbe case. Mr. Silent objected on tbe ground tbat it was an attempt to prove a loat will, and that it wae privileged, tbat Mr. Hanlon could not disclose the secrets be received as an attorney. There was a long diseuasion upon the point raised, participated in by tbe varioua members of counsel on both sides, and then Judge Clark adjourned court until next Tuesday after taking the matter under advisement.
CAMPBELL'S LIQUOR BILL. Ha Pleads the statute or Limitations, Bnt the Case Will It., Tried. The caae of W. L. Price va. Geo. W. Campbell, the councilman from Boyle Heighta, came up for hearing before Judge York in department three of tbe superior court yesterday, upon a motion of plaintiff to dismiaa tbe appeal. Thia is the caae in wbich Statesman Campbell purchased a half barrel of whisky from tbe California Wine company, and sold tbe same, it ie alleged, at retail in bis drug store on Boyle Heights. After repeatedly asking for more time in which lo settle the bill, be now oomes in and makes a special plea of tbe statute of limitations. The case was recently tried before Justice Austin, and judgment went against him, whereupon be appealed to tbe euperior court. Mr. Campbell is at preaent a member of the city council, and as ancb be seeks to crush out opposition by opposing the opening of aaloona on Boyle Height?, and claims that hia constituents do not favor ealoona. In the meantime, it ia claimed, he dispenses more I quor at hia drugstore than any other suburban aaloon in tbe city. Now that Mr. Campbell has been nominated by the Republicans for coroner it will be interesting for the voters to note that be ia endear, oring to avoid payment of bia bills by pleading the statute of limitationsJudge York denied plaintiff's motion to dismiss tbe case and set the case for trial in hie department for October 12th.
BEFORE THE COUNCIL, Various Petitions nnd Protests Presented Yesterday.

WHAT CAME OF A BET.
DEPUTY SHERIFF RECTOR MAKES A VVAUEU AND REPENTS.
as Officer Baaklng Proprietor Chaso of tha Nsd.ss to Serve a Writ or Iteplavln on tha Btakn Money.
"Heads I win, tails you lose," bas ever been a popular game with sporty boys whose sole ambition has bsen to annex tbe spare nickels of their unfortunate companions. Most men who have ever given the "tiger's tall a twist" are expected to know a thing or two and not have such a ohestnot rung in upon them. Certain of tbe federal nnd county officials, however, are just now wondering wbere they stand as regards a rather curious bet.
East week Deputy Sheriff W. J. Rao tor, who keeps tab on how many flies perch on Judge York's rostrum, was seized with the idea tbat McNally was not going to be the neit sheriff of Los Angeles county. He thought he saw a way to make money if he only could find a man obtuse enongh to throw money to tbe birds in backing tbe Democratic nominee. He was bo bappy in bis idea that he let it be known that he'd donate $10 for tbe free distribution of prayer-book bandana handkerchiefs among the Digger Indians if anyone would find him any man willing to meet his bet.
George Hopkins, janitor of the federal building, consumed by a burning deaire to disseminate Christian knowledge among the family of poor Lo, hunted around town until he found Ed Maxwell, of tbe Nadeau bar, who said if 2 to 1 was offered him on Burr against McNally be would take the bet. Tbis to Rector was simply pie—a dead open and abut cinch. On Monday, accompanied by Deputy Sheriff Frank Cochran and Janitor Hopkins, Rector bad a proper agreement drawn np, and be put np $200 against Maxwell's $100. The money was handed over to Proprietor Chase of tbe Nadeao, and the golden twenties now lie temptingly in the big hotel sale. Right here, however, tbe fun begins. On Monday morning Rector's hat waa abont three sizes too email for him, but after bia money wae up it began to live evidence of being just a trifle too big. Something muat be wrong with hia hat —or hia head. It turned oot to be hia head. He repented of bia bet and went to Maxwell and asked bim to call it off. "Stay where you are partner," was all Maxwell wonld say. "I'm satisfied with my end so what are you kicking about anyway ?" On Tuesday Rector was again on his knees. He offered to pay forfeit. His friend Cochran tried to rally bim by saying he knew where be oonld get men with $5000 to put up on the same proposition and on the same terms. "All right," eaid Maxwell, "I'll call yon. Trot out your men." Rector by yeaterday altsrnoon wag in despair. He became convinced that McNally was a dead aare winner—anything if he could only get hia money back. One laat appeal be made to Maxwell.
