SATURDAY, SEPTEMBER 23d.
Opened at 8 o’clock, Bishop Walden in
j the chair. After devotional services the
Bishop spoke on Hymnology and the
reading and use of hymns. Many min
isters do not read their hymns before the
congregation, and many more have not
so learned the art of reading hymns as
to make them impressive, or to bring out
the full meaning of the meter. The most
impressive hymn reding “ye reporter”
ever heard in the pulpit was by a black
man, formerly a slave, but who was set
free and educated by Henry Clay of Ken
tucky. Forty years have passed since we
heard that black man read,
•‘Or Him who did salvation brlnfr
I could forever think and siutf,"
and the music of both hymn and reading
has rung in our ears ever since.
The minutes of the previous session
were read and approved. C. C. Cissell
and D. D. Forsyth who were absent at
roll call, now being present, made their
reports. The calling of the list of effect
ive elders was continued, and the follow
ing reported: J. T. Roberts, of Curtis;
R. S. Moore, of Elsie; E. J. Robinson, of
Grant; W. J. Crago, of Imperial; J. M.
Eads, of Maywood; W. E. Hardawav, of
North Platte; J. P. Badgeley, of Ogaliala;
T.,H. Thurbur, cf Paxton; James Leon
ard, of Sidney. E. L. Hutchins has been
absent and R. A. Piggens has been trans
ferred to Illinois.
The report of the committee on peri
odicals was presented, and Dr. Shank,
editor of the Omaha Christian Advocate,
which was made the official organ of
this Conference, made an address.
The following named ministers, who
have been for two years on trial in the
Conference, made their reports, and were
elected to full membership in the Con
ference; and to ordination as deacons:
Burton C. Peck, of Overton, Harvey M.
Pinkney, (already ordained) of Sumner;
Douglas Streeter, of Stratton; Cyrus A.
Webster, of Hayes Centre; John A. Ellis,
of Broken Bow.
The reception of candidates into full
membership in the Conference is always
made an impressive service. The candi
dates are called before the Conference
and are publicly and personally ques
tioned by the Bishop concerning their
religious experiences, and their purposes
and habits of life. The Bishop also made
a thrilling address on “The Work of the
Ministry, and the Requirements put Up
on these Servants of God.” Not only the
candidates, but the whole Conference,
and the congregation, was moved by this
An executive session was then held in
the interest of the Nebraska Wesleyan
University, addresses being made by
Chancellor Crook, Prof. Ellinwood, and
Rev. O. R. Beebe.
The stewards made a preliminary re
port and the name of M. W. Smith was
transferred to the list of superannuated
preachers and he was recognized as a
Afternoon Session. — Devotional ser
vices were conducted by Rev. A. G. For
man. Dr. Shank presented to the Con
ference a certificate of stock in the Oma
ha Methodist Publishing Company, and
A. J. Clifton was elected a director to
hold the same.
Kev. J. O. Peck, D. D., one of the sec
retaries of the Missionary Society, was
introduced and made an address. The
doctor is a “down-easter, ” but he soon
showed that he is “onto” western ways
and methods in good shape. The Confer
ence will gladly hear him again.
George H. Bradford was admitted to
Conference ministership and elected to
deacon’s orders, .under the missionary
rule. Alfred Gilson was also elected to
deacon’s orders under the same rule.
Bishop Walden then spoke on the
“Order of Senic in the Methodist
Churches.” Afterthis Dr. Peck spoke on
“The Geary Anti-Chinese Law,” the en
forcement of which is almost certain to
endanger, if not destroy, all the Ameri
can missions in China. In a recent in
terview, Mr. Geary said: “China has a
right to drive Americans out of China,
to drive out the missions, as we claim
the right to drive out anarchists.” Chris
tian people of the United States will
observe the animus of the man who
classes missionaries with anarchists.
On Saturday night was held the anni
versary of the Conference Missionary So
ciety. James Leonard presided. The ad
dress was made by Dr. Peck. Among the
interesting facts stated by him, we note
the following: “As the contributions to
the missionary cause of the Methodist
church are collected by pastors and
transmitted without expense to the
church, the expense of the administra
tion of our missionary work is reduced
so low as to be practically insignificant,
only a small fraction above two per cent.
For many years the missionary board,
instead of going to the banks to buy bills
of exchange for the transmission of funds
to its foreign fields, has issued its own

Travel over the B. & M. system has
increased so it has been necessary to
borrow cars from other roads, and it is
stated as a fact that the company has as
much traffic as it can conveniently han
dle. This condition of affairs is thought
to be responsible for the high rates to
the world’s fair. After all, this may be
the primary cause of the discontinuance
of so many branch trains lately, because
it is evident that the roads are doing a
profitable business, notwithstanding
their claim that they are not making ex
