It Is firmly believed that at least two of these men will be selected to tbe bUb position mentioned, during this session. If not four of them.

It ia possible that other men, and strong n-n, too, sitting in tbe conference, will be elected, but the eyes of the conference and those watching the workings of th conference express the belief that tills list will furnish the material. Desplt the fact that the conference 1 a church organization, there is much politic to be noticed. The delegates, tx.ta clerical and lay, are keeplnn tceir eves open, and while there is absolutely nothing of a definite nature given our. attention I called to some of the men mentioned. PREACHERS WERE BUSY.

The clerical delegates to the conference on i this city did not have an idle day. Many of the ministers' occupied pulpits in Birmingham in Protestant churches today or went to the uburbs. Appointments were filled In Birmingham. Avon-dale, Woodlawn. Pratt City.

Bessemer, Ensley and even at other places. Those who were not In the pulpits attended services at the First Methodist Church, which place the big auditorium and gallery were hardly larsce enough to accommodate the congregation.

Fairbanks by the people of Birmingham, outside of the conference, promise to go astray. The conference bas fixed Friday night as the time for bearing from the fraternal delegates from the Episcopal Chorch. It waa Intended br the peopie of Birmingham that Mr. Fairbanks, who come here a lay delegate from the Methodist Episcopal Church. North, would talk before the conference la the morning.

In the afternoon It was proposed to have an open air or auditorium meeting, and at r.iht a banquet wit to have been given at the Hiilman Hotel. It Is not believed that Mr. Fairbanks could deliver his address before the conference and then leave immediately for the banquet, though it Is Intended to have a "cold water" bamquet for the distinguished guest. However, those who are In chAqiro believe that before next Friday, wlen the Vice President is to be here, the matter will have been satisfactorily arranged. Mr.

Fairbanks will be called on to deliver at least three speeches while jn Birmingham, including his conference address. There is a belief that he will make many friends In his ambition in the national political field. BUSIEST SESSION EVER HELD. Indications point to the present conference as being one of the busiest. If not the busiest, ever held bv the church.

say more than one delegate. There are many matter to come ud yet. and. if rumor are to be believed, the committee on Episcopacy will have a lengthy report to make, if that committee I willing to make a report. There seems to be no disposition to spread the Information to the world in retard to chartres against the heads of the church, and the blsbODs Stand verv hlh In the of the majority of the members of the conference.

Memorials, petitions and resolutions mint hereafter pass through the conference first before reaching the committees, Instead of being referred tn the conference through the committee.

JEW LAWS RECOMMENDED SECOND CLASS MAIL. FOR FwstrataMer General Saaarats As-pulataaeat of Cam salsa Io Declares the Extntlaa- Katte Are Very Mark Oat of Date Sosae rosflinir Wasuigtou, May 6. Itmaster General Corteiyou has rwtmmendeJ to Con gress liie at'oointment of a commission to ln.ii.ire into the subject of second-cla matter, with a view to ascertaining what modifications of the present second class law are necessary, the commiion to render Its report to Congress not later than 10, IWx la onler that ail interests shall be represented he has recommended that the consist of seven persona, and be made as follows: ne Senator iected by liie president of the Senate, oi.e representative selected by the Speak er of the House, one officer of the I'ost- of3ce lvpartment, selected by the Post master General, one representative of the publishers of daily newspapers, one representative of the publishers of week ly, semi-weekly and trl-weekly newspapers, au.1 one representative of the publishers of periodicais ami magaiines. The last three to be appointed by the President of the United States from among those recommended to him by representative associations of publishers of such newspapers and periodicals, and a seventh memler to be selected by the six, whose manner of selection is so specifically provided.

The commission will have the power to employ clerks and stenographers, administer oaths, send for persons and papers, and do all things necessary for the carrying out of Its objects. An appropriation of is asked to defray the cost of the Investigation. The Postmaster General, in his recent annual report, recommended, to Congress a thorough review of the whole subject of second-cla as mall matter, and the enactment of a statute to take the place of those existing which would render unnecessary the consideration of such questions as those upon which second-class matters now depend. In now recommending this commission the Postmaster General, in his communication to the Senate Committee on Poetofflees and Post Roads, says: "The existing statutes regulating second class of mail matter are out of date; they do not met modern requirements of the publishing Industry, and the admin istration of them unnecessarily and on reasonably hampers the publishers of bonifliie newspapers and periodicals. Aa an illustration of what Involved in administration it may be stated that the questioc of what is a bonlfide newspaper or ptmsiirii is one aoout wnicn there may be and often is much difference of op.

Clou. I same ia true of what const tures a known office or publication, what constitutes a publication originated and published for the dissemination of lnfor- uittioa of a public character, what is devoted to literature, the sciences, arts or some special industry what is a iegiti mat list of subscribers. All thesn questions, however, must be determined In each case before second class entry can be granted: but a publication having met all the conditions is positively prohibited admission If it be 'designed primarily for advertising purposes or for free circula tion, or for circulation at nominal rates. That such questions, especially the latter, are subtle and complex and ren der administration exceedingly difficult, scarcely need be stated." t.ven after tbe right of a publication to pass in the malls at the second class rate of postage hM been determined, there are atx different rates of postage applicable thereto when the matter is mailed by pubilsners ana news agents. and when mailed by the general public there in provided another a seventh rate.

EacH rate Is dependent upon the circ*mstances of time, place and manner of mailing the publication. Postmaster General Ci-rtelyou expresses the belief that such a commission, if arpointed, will be able to make recommendations to Congress which will result in the passage of a law that will be equitable to the publishers, relieve them from present auiiovaaces and restrictions, and at tbe same time protect the Interest of the for-ernment.

This has been the first day of official rest that the city has bad sine the beginning of Its distress. All the municipal departments were closed, with the ex cepUon of the police stations and hospitals, and Franklin Hall, the seat of Baa Francisco's government, was desert- ad.

Among the churches the same conditions prevailed as upon the preceding Sunday, open air it ices being the rule even where the buildings were unharmed. At Golden Gate Park the usual Sunday afternoon concert was given, and was attended by thousands.

That the people as a whole are beginning to look for some diversion was shown last night, when a crowd assembled to witness a vaudeville now In a ball In Fillmore street. The authorities, however, at the last moment refvsed to permit the performance.
