of pleasure and satisfaction.
To the governor's address Dr. Rhode
The general synod reciprocate the cor
diality with which you have woluome <
us , and in reply 1 congratulate the state o
Nebraska on its governor.
We hail from many states , each om
an empire. We did not know whethe
there would be room enough for us here
There is such a thing as a state withoti
the church , but it is a pagan state.
Such a state must go down to ruii
and carry its people with it. There is i
special relation between the progress o
which you boast and our church , becausi
of the principles enunciated by bin
whoso name you mentioned.
I nm certain 1 voice the desire of th
general synod when I express the hope
that you in the state , and that wo in lh <
church may together bo instrumental ii
making this slate and every other stat
in the union one grand empire and tha
the empire of God.
Mr. 0. F. Goodman escorted Hon. W

platform , when he said :

remark that he did not feel that ho de
served any welcome. Ho had opposed

the place and experienced the welcome ,
ho was thoroughly ashamed , and was
willing to do any amount of penance ,
The money that the church had put intc

asticul investment that hud brought great
results. Ho did not know anything

Something About the Lutheran * .
The general synod is a delegate bodv
representing twenty-three synods , con
sisting of 873 ministers and 11)1,810 ) mem <
bers. It does not represent all the Luth
eran churches , by reason of the diver
sity ofjlanguage , and the various phase ;
of doctrine to bo found among the Chris
tians who hear this historic name. The
general synod is the oldest , and though
not the largest general body in the
church , it represents the life of tlu
Evangelical church of the reformation ,
as developed and modified by the religi
ous life of the free country in which wi
live. It has adapted itself to its sur
roundings : , and caught the spirit and
[ junius ot the now country in which it
has found a home.
No member of any of its churches ad
mits however , that it has departed from
the faith of the fathers. Its history is re
garded us the record of genuine and
legitimate progress. It makes no claim
that the Lutheran church alone is the
truu church on earth. It believes that its
faith is the most scriptural and the
purest , but it does not , on this account ,
unchurch all others. It recognizes and
extends a fraternal hand to all Evangeli
cal Christians , and co-operates with them
in general movements for the upbuilding
of Christ's kingdom. It is unwilling tc
enforce rigidly the rule "Lutheran pul
pits for Lutheran ministers only , and
Lutheran altars for Lutheran communi
cants only. " It invites to its pulpits
ministers of other Evangelical denomin
ations whenever Christian courtesy or the
cause of the Redeemer may require it.
The Lutheran church in America was
founded by the celebrated German divine
Rev. Henry Mclchoir Mulilenborg , who
arrived in this country in 1712. There
had been scattering colonies of Luther
ans hero since 1021 , but they were often
without regular ministers , and they had
no synodicul organization of any kind.
Six years after the landing of Muhlen-
berg the first synod was organized ir
Philadelphia. For moru than seventy
years the work of the church was under
the direction of individual synods. These
synods were scattered through various
states , were more or less independent ol
each other , and attended mainly to tlu
interests of the church upon the terntor\
which they rcspcetivelv occupied
In consequence of tills a spin :
of separation and jealousy , rathei
than of union and mutua
no-operation was fostered. To counter
act this spirit , and to promote the pros
perity of the church , the general synod
was organized in 1820.
The convention in that year was hole
m Hagerstown , Md. , and since that time
there nas been continued growth not
withstanding the fact that the general
synod south and the general councilbotli
largo bodies , have been formed by synods
withdrawing from it.
The present convention consists o :
102 delegates from all over the United
States , together with the officers of the
various church boards and societies. Its
sessions will bo open to all , and tno pro
ceediugs will bo Of great interest.
