It is a slander. Mr. Lanahan.--My character for twenty-five years has been known to this Conference. I shall make no further answer to Brother Gibson's remark. E. P. Phelps said: I am sorry that there has been any feeling. Brother Lanahan simply said that "a correspondence had been carried on for this end." W. T. D. Clemm said: We must have this matter settled.
