STARR WAS HISSED.
Penitentiary Chaplain Attempted to Defend Herrick at Methodist Conference.
SPECIAL TO THE PLAIN DEALER.
     SPRINGFIELD, O., Sept. 9 - The Cincinnati M. E. Conference this evening by an overwhelming vote adopted a resolution denunciatory of Gov. Herrick.  It reads:
     "One year ago this conference said: 'We also express our regret that the governor of Ohio allied himself with the liquor interest in his persistent efforts by the threatened use of his vote prerogative to compel the legislature to modify its actions in the interests of the saloon against the expressed which of the people through their representatives.  We earnestly protested against the renomination of the present governor of Ohio.'
     'Similar action was taken by the synod conferences, conventions, both state and district of all the great Protestant denominations of Ohio.  The political bosses paid no attention to this voice of the church but deliberately, renominated for governor the man against whom we protested.  We do, therefore, now express our indignation at this utter disregard of the wishes of the Christian manhood of Ohio and in view of said action we reiterate our convictions in the case and propose to register those convictions at the polls.'
     Chaptain Starr of the Ohio penitentiary made an attempt to defend Herrick.  The majority against him was so great he had to desist.  Starr  was repeatedly hissed.
