Xay Representation sxs proposed by
tlio: General Conference, has no,cO;n-
nectin with the Annual Conferences,
and consequently: has no Influence
upon the appointment of the variyas
ministers to. their field.? 'of, labor; or
with the examination of their charac
ter.' A'jfain jt does not lii any way
modify the constitution of the Gener
al Conference, sa far, as. the number of
. '. il J j. 1. I? 11. -I. . 1 !....
miiiisiers or iue uiouuui uieireieeuuu
i3 coneerncd." ' If Lay Delegation I?
adopted 'the General Conference vlll
consist of precisely, the same nurober
of ministers from the'ditTerent Annual
Conferences, h though, there were no
lay delegates, and they will be elected
in precisely tlie same' "way. In , which
they bow are. ; 'But to' their number
will be added two . lay delegates from
th.e.rne'rnbership; fii the. large Con fer
encesp and 'one-' fr6m' the 'smaller.
These delegates will meet with the
ministers, and will take part fn the
various deliberations, but on all occa
sions of interest, when a distinct "vote
Is called for, they will vote separately
from the ministers." No new law can
be passed, no alternation of the dis-
cipline can be made, except by the
vote first, of the majority of ministers;
and. secondly, by the vote of the ma
jority of lay delegates, thus giving ex-
ressiou to ne .voice or tne wnoie
;hufch, both clerical and lay. ! The
chpice of these delegates is to ' be . by
an Electoral-Conference mcetinff 'at
the -time and place' of the Annual
Conference previous to the General
Conference. It is to be composed of
laymen, oue of whom' shall be chosen
by each Quarterly Conference. This
Is the plan submitted by the General
Conference. '. !" " ; '
From this brief statement It will be
seen that all arguments in reference
to "the Annual Conferences or to : tne
influence of laymen therein,' or as to
the appointments are 'wholly irrele
vant to thenuestion. The only chancre
pro)x)scd is in the law-making' power;
aiid that; simply Iry way of addition.
No layman is totakethc place of any
minister, or is iu any way to imerieru
withitherjJUis priyilcgiis prlus nre
rosratives." !-A plan so simple, which aims raefe-
ly to call Into exercise another portion
of . the Church and thus add to its
strength would seem, in .itself, litUe
likely to call forth opposition. - - :
- Yet f e cannot close our eyes to the
;vct that cood and wise men honestly,'
... 11.. . I i.
seriously, -ami earnesiiy oujwv tv iu
uitrtKlQction of tlus lay element into
the, law-making department of our
ChurcJu Nor am I surprised that this
is the 'ease, when I consider that His
ruriit we sliouiu omecc loany.cuauge
unless., ft good reason for that change
can be shown ; and I am free to admit
that upon, the supporters or lay- ueie-
atiou rests the buruen ol snowing
wiiy tnis measure snouiu ue intro
duced. Until that is shown we have
no right to claim the favor or the votes
of the Church. A conservative feeling
is rhjht and proper in its place; but it
mav err in declinina: to examine the
evidence brought in favor of any plan,
and of.bhmiJy rejecting ail proposi
tions for change, when these changes
mav be an improvement.
The grand proposition which we
present is tuas it is proper mat, inu
whole Church whould participate in
making rules and regulations for its
own government. ' We express only
the common judgment of mankind
when we say that every association or
community has a right to form its
own .rules ana to manage ns ywu
affairs, and that no one class in the
association has a right to rule the oth:
ers without the consent of the body.
This, is involved in the Ideas of indi
viduality and of equal rights, and
this lies at the foundation oi an iree
governments. . - ...
The cnurcn is an association oi
chris tain people,-and as such why
have not its members the same privi
leges as other associations? Possibly
it is said that the Church differs from
other institutions. In that it is divine
ly established. But so far as regards
the act of their being, are not civil
governments also of God ? 'The pow
ers that be are ordaineu of uotl," and
yet the people have a right to a voice
as to form and persons. But it is said
there is a little legislation in the
Church: that Christ, the great head of
the Church, has taught us the doc
trines, and has established the ordi
nances. . This Ave fully admit. The
great outlines are so clearly revealed
that neither member nor minister can
change or modify. All we allege is
that what Christ has not clearly es
tablished, but has left the Church free
to regulate pertains-equally to the
whole Church, and not to any pecu
liar class. . But it is said, "The minis
try is called of God to its sacred office
ana neuce xias u ugut iu govern mis
Church." I assert and most strenu
lously maintain the doctrine of a di
vine call to the ministry ; but I deny
that the call to. the ministry includes
the right to enact the laws. . Christ
commissioned his Aiostels to preach
to teach. But the disciplines of the
Church he committed . to the Church
itself. This is where a brother has
differed, '. (Mathew XVIII: 17vf) "If
he. shall neglect to hear them tell it
unto the' Church,' aiid if he neglect
to hear, the Church kthim be unto
thee as a heathen man and a publi
can." Assuredly if the Church is to
hear,' to decide and to condemn, 'It
must have the right to arrange the
mode of Its procedure, and, in other
words, to make its own regulations.
The, Apostle alludes to the various
offices in the Church of this distinc
tion; when he says, "God hath 'set
some in' the Church, first apostles;
secondly prophepts; thirdly teachers;
after that miracles," then girts of heal
ings, helps, governments," diversities
of tongues." Christ is the head, the
Church Is Ills body." Of the members
of the Church, it is said, "Ye are the
body of Christ, and members in par
ticular." One may be humble as the
foot, another versatile as the hand,
another clear as the eye Yet "the
eye cannot say to the hand I have no
need of thee ; nor again, the head to
the feet, I have no need of you." The
result of this union of all the members,
is beautifully portrayed by the Apos
tle, when he says ;"the, whole body
fitly joined together and compacted
by that which every joint supplieth
according to the effectual working in
the measure of every part, maketh in
crease of the body unto the edifying of
itselfinlQV.'V!;.; , .
Before . proceeding, to show more
sieei tie reasou for -the fcliangeJLaiay
notice some objections which its op
opponents' offer to Its introduction.
First,' by pome .the measure is. said
ta be "revolutionary." I scarcely
know what is meant by those who em
ploy this phrase. A revolutionary
measure is one which seeks to over
throw an establish order of things in
an unlawful way, whether it be by
force or fraud. An alternation of the
law, or au alteration of the Constitu-

tion in a legal manner, is'never styled
revolutionary." ' " J' "
Conference, wlnclfhas poinfed out
tne nay. in. winch. the, change can be
mdde legally VJ and has' invited '.a-consideration
of-apldn to effect it. . Ho far
thn,' trota itte being revoldtlonary, it
is strictly legal,? and is to be brought
about in harmony with; the cons til u

Thirdly.- it is objected to by some as
adding to the numbers of the General
Conference so as to make that body
inconveniently if . not uncontrollably
large.,t -But if wecompare the num
bers of the General Conference with
the numbers of the General Assembly
of the Presby teriau Church, it will bo
found that alter the addition of the
lay delegates, as proposed, gour Gen
eral Cenference would be no more nu
merous than thelienenil Assembly of
the Old School Presbyterian Church"!
audi yet that body meets onco' every
y ear, iwhereas otir General Confercnca.
meets only once ia' four years. ; Again,
with this addition it would have only
a few more. members than the Ohio,
New York and Philadelphia Confer
ences had prior. to their, division, and
probably. not any more than the old
Bultiuieie Conference once containetL
The": Wesley an ! Conference im Eng
land, wluch meets annually, is usual
ly composed of about lx hundred or
nearly twice as many as our General
Conference would havev- .
, Again ;it . lias been objected to by
some .that it .will add ta the etpenses
of the church that these additional
delegates will be a burden to the peo
ple.i.If a measure be of Spiritual ben
efit ajftd would add to " the influence
and strength of the Church of the
Lord Jesus Christ, it seems to me the
question of money should be subordi
nated to moral and spiritual interests.
Yet it may not be amiss, to inquire
how far it would add to the expenses.
Let us suppose, for instance, that the
Pittsburg Conference lias two dele
gates.; - Tiro most distant points at
which tho-General Conference has
heretofore set have been Chicago ami
Boston'..: -The railroad fare to Chicago
is, I think, fourteen dollars; to Bos
ton, about twenty. .''
Owing to the courtesy of railroad
companies' 'this fare is often reduced.
But let us give-tfMroeTal margin, and
KUpprfiU that tile fare going to and're
turning -from, Conference should be
fifty dollars for each delegation. We
should then have one hundred dollars
as the traveling expenses. But sup
pose the additional number of dele
gates would embarrass the provision
tor the General Conference, and that
these delegates must lx? placed at
boarding houses. Let us suppose the
General Conference to last for about
four weeks, the boarding beiug, say
twelve dollars per week, we should
then have for the two delegates an ad
ditional hundred dollars, making two
hundred in all for the laymen of the
Conference, As I turn to the minutes
I find that the Pittsburgh Conference
numbers nearly forty thousand members-
One cent a piece. would make
four huudred dollars, or ouo hah! cent
each .would furnish two hundred, ithe
amount necessary. In other words,
the great expense of this system would
consist in one half cent apiece once In
four years. How much weight should
be attached to this half cent argument
I leave for you Itutetexmine,
Tliat it has an influence is proved
by" the fact that it is lised by your
Doctors of Divinity In New -York and
elsewhere, and they doubtless feel its
force. ' ;':" . ;' .' , - , ' ,
Again it Is said our system .has
worked, well hitherto, and is it'. not
best to "let well enough alone." I
answer, , our system, if by that be
meant the precise mode in which the
Church commenced, has never , yet
been let alone. We have been adding,
from time to time, almost every quad
rennial period since the Church com
menced its career. YYe began without
a college, without academies, without
a r missionary society, . without . a
Preacher's Aid Society, without Sun
day schools, without tracts, 'M without
a Book Concern, w without a Church
Extension Society, without Theologi
cal Seminaries but, from time to time
as the Church expanded, each one of
these has been added to. our Church
machinery; , so ; that from the . com
mencement .of the, Church onward,
we have beeii adding elements of pow
er tothoso previously possessed; If the
present measure be adopted it will be
simply following in the line of prece
dent, adding another element ot pow
er; not destroying or impairing those
we have, but eLilarging, for more ex
tensive usefulness the operations of
the Church.-; ' : ' .
But if we takc'tiie'staicmcnt sfrict
vlct well, enough alone;" ' had
this been our policy, the Church nev
er would have grown. ' We' should
have none of these appliances now
found of such vast benefit. We were
inercasiug rapidly, when it was pro
posed to establish colleges. ' Many
said "Let well enough alouc," colleges
might spoil us." So others objected to
the Missionary Society, and others to
Theological Schools. Many of you re
member when it "was esteemed rank

Church were it no$ that they fear that

centers of, jullueoce., ..And sorao say
these offices would ..be,. fiUed.by.itlie
rich only, who would seek to tyranuuo
over ..both, miiusters .ami- members.
Let us examine this subject for a few
moments, , as may, doubtless, - have
been affected .by, its : plausible .state
ment, and, first, as. to, ungodly, men.
Such. may make their way into , the
Church. . .There was nne such among
the twelve disciples. . There may be
such found even among the most, ex
allcd ministry." Butthese are sad and
mournful . exceptions .So with, the
laity 'of the, .Church." There may be
unholy;' men' .who 'auiuirestanding
amOng the laity, but wchope .these
are. comparatively, ew and Jar'. be
tween. ."; I f such be the general .char
atet'of'the laity, alas,! for. the work
which 'mjhisters-Jjave leen doing n
the last Century' Of how. little? have
we to be proud if such is the character
of ' the membership which we have
gathered together. But to suppose
that the ungodly, the factious or the
ambitious" would be voluntarily cho
sen by the Church to represent them
is to suppose either great ignorance
on the part of . the Church, or gros3
carelessness or utter recklessness as to
its interest. . But are these the char
acferistics of our membership? If a
duty devolves upon them to select one
who 'shall be their standard bearer
and support their honor, will they se
lect one in whose religious character
they have no confidence, or one who
would dishonor the cause of God?
It is sometimes said the churches
which' have adopted this principle
have not succeeded Be it so. It re
mains to be proved that their want of
of success arises from thi3 fact, and
not from other causes. The Methodist
Protestant Church and the Wesleyan
Methodist Church, not only had lay
delegatations; but they abolished the
presiding eldership and the Episcopa
cy. May not their comparative want
of. success have t arisen . from . these
causes. , But these lay delegate bodies
of Methodism arc ty no means unim
portant to-day. Adding together the
Church South, the Methodist Protes
tants the. Wesleyan Methodists, the
African Zoin, and the African Metho
dist Episcopal Church, wo have a net
amount of about one million members,
approaching ; j very closely to the
amount of membership now in what
may be termed the Mother Church.
And then we are to consider that,
within it, a3 shown by the last vote
upon lay delegation, a little over one
third of all the votes cast were, in fa
vor of lay delegation. Without claim
ing any increase since that period, we
may simply say that at least one-third
of the oM.church is in favor of lay
delegation, 'and all the other branches
have adopted it, so that the friends of
lay delegation In the lethodist bodies,
taken its a whole are vastly in the ma
jority. "And yet this growth of senti
ment has been 'in Opposition to all
preconceived opinions. How shall
this be accounted for if there be not
something in this change which Com
mands, almost irresistably, the con
sent of the public mind? And is it
wise to-resist this tendency when we
may; by so slight an addition to oar
system, bring ourselves' in full harmo
ny with it without materially -changing
or modifying our system ? '
-Thirdly, thia addition would mate
the membership of the Church feel an '
increased interest in the movements of
the Church, because additional re
sponsibility would be laid upon them.
There: is a great influence in the sira-
Ele words, "We did it" If the action
e glorious we love to.thiuk we were
part and parcel of the actors. . If it be
disasterous, it tends to prevent mur
muriugs and discontent. ..If where
measures are adopted, they are adopt
ed by general consent and agreement,
are. they not more. vigorously carried
forward than if they are" adopted sim
ply by a particular ixrt of the church?
And who has-not noticed indifferent
sections' of our church, au, exhibition
of the feeling thatthe churclr belongs,
in a great measure, to the ministers,
and they are held responsible for all
the difficulties, for all the legislation,
and, if any mistakes be made, for all
the mistakes. In some sections, we
have rseen members leaving the
church, aa if to spite the minister, as
though the ministers were the church,
and not the laity as well.
Lastly the submission of 'this ques
tion to the vote of the laity seems to
me will necessiate the adoption r of
some system or lay representation.
but. because the voice of, the. Jay men
should be.heard ? And why 'iu this,
question more than in other cjiangcs?
la it .said because' this is of 'greatest

competent to decide the gravest ques

it because, they are interested in this

ted ? And if it.is wise and proper to

But if it Is" right for tb em to speak,

Three times has that -ministry as
sembled In General Conference, tit
tering a declaration approving. ..this
measure if the people desire it. In
1800 they said, "We are in favor of lay
representation whenever tho Church
shall desire it." In 1804 they repeat
ed the same declaration. In 1863
they repeated the same sentiment,
and, taking a step in advance, pre
pared a plan by which that represen
tation may be obtained, and to which
they ask your Godly consideration.
What more can the ministry do than
this? After full consideration, three
times in twelve years, they havo de
clared, their willingness to accext of
you ? .What more, I repeat, can they
do than simply to open the way?
And it is now for you to say whether
you will accept the proffered resjMjnsi
bility, and whether you will become
co-workers with them in the future
exaltation of our beloved Methodism.
And what tiuiecaii bemore propiti
ous than the commencement of the
second century of Methodism. -It3
first contennial services .have .been
held,' ami song and praise have re
sounded" throughout the land." The
first General Conference- succeeding
that ceatennary in which the people
showed their love of and devotion to
the Church, have prepared this plan
and sent it down to you. It is yours
now with glad .hearts and strong
arms to join with . the . ministry in

-So far from "being factious, this
movement has been intensely loyal.
Its discussion has been geueraily calm
and dignified. .Its friends have stood
shoulder to shoulder around the en
terprise of the church. ' Without
claiming for them any superiority, it
may be said they have been as true as
any to their ministers, as liberal in
their - support, as faithful In their
friendship. Their voices had been
herd iu the class room and at the al
ter of prayer,; and they . have laliored
and toiled for the prosperity of Zoin.
If, then, It be neither revolutionary
nor radical, if it' impaired ho rights of
the ministry and weakens no depart-,
mentof the Church,, but if, on the
contrary, it gives Increased interest to
the laity, will bring out, to a greater
extent the resources of the Church, if

ting our system to the latest generav

hearty concurrence of all the laity of
the Church? , . .; u .
