This is a digital copy of a book that was preserved for generations on library shelves before it was carefully scanned by Google as part of a project 
to make the world's books discoverable online. 

It has survived long enough for the copyright to expire and the book to enter the public domain. A public domain book is one that was never subject 
to copyright or whose legal copyright term has expired. Whether a book is in the public domain may vary country to country. Public domain books 
are our gateways to the past, representing a wealth of history, culture and knowledge that's often difficult to discover. 

Marks, notations and other marginalia present in the original volume will appear in this file - a reminder of this book's long journey from the 
publisher to a library and finally to you. 

Usage guidelines 

Google is proud to partner with libraries to digitize public domain materials and make them widely accessible. Public domain books belong to the 
public and we are merely their custodians. Nevertheless, this work is expensive, so in order to keep providing this resource, we have taken steps to 
prevent abuse by commercial parties, including placing technical restrictions on automated querying. 

We also ask that you: 

+ Make non-commercial use of the files We designed Google Book Search for use by individuals, and we request that you use these files for 
personal, non-commercial purposes. 

+ Refrain from automated querying Do not send automated queries of any sort to Google's system: If you are conducting research on machine 
translation, optical character recognition or other areas where access to a large amount of text is helpful, please contact us. We encourage the 
use of public domain materials for these purposes and may be able to help. 

+ Maintain attribution The Google "watermark" you see on each file is essential for informing people about this project and helping them find 
additional materials through Google Book Search. Please do not remove it. 

+ Keep it legal Whatever your use, remember that you are responsible for ensuring that what you are doing is legal. Do not assume that just 
because we believe a book is in the public domain for users in the United States, that the work is also in the public domain for users in other 
countries. Whether a book is still in copyright varies from country to country, and we can't offer guidance on whether any specific use of 
any specific book is allowed. Please do not assume that a book's appearance in Google Book Search means it can be used in any manner 
anywhere in the world. Copyright infringement liability can be quite severe.

RULES OF ORDER. 



1. The daily sessions of the Convention shall be opened 
with Divine Service, beginning at 10 o'clock A. M. 

2. The Convention, upon its first assembling, shall be 
called to order by the Bishop, or if there be no Bishop, or if 
he be absent, by the President of the Standing Committee or 
by some member of that body appointed by those of its mem- 
bers who may be present. 

3. When the President takes the chair every member shall 
take his seat, and remain uncovered until he shall have left 
the Convention. 

4. The names of the Clergymen entitled to seats shall be 
called over by the Secretary of the last Convention, or in his 
absence by someone appointed by the Bishop, or other person 
who called the Convention to order. The said call shall be 
made from a roll furnished by the Bishop or oiher ecclesias- 
tical authority of the Diocese, which roll shall be evidence of 
the right of such Clergymen to seats until the Convention 
shall have formally acted upon that question. The Secretary 
shall then call a provisional roll of Lay delegates, prepared 
from the certificates which have been received from the ves- 
tries. The Lay delegates whose certificates have not already 
been forwarded to the Secretary shall then lay their certifi- 
cates upon the table, with the declaration subscribed as re- 
quired by the Constitution. The Secretary shall then call 
these additional names, if required by the Chair, or by any 
member. In calling the roll of the Clergy and Lay delegates 
the surname only — with the prefix of "Mr.'' — shall be called, 
except when there may be two, or more, of the same name, 
in which case they shall be designated by the addition of their 
Christian names. If a quorum of both orders appear, the 
presiding officer shall announce the fact, and declare that the 
Convention is organized and ready for business. 

(xxxiii) 



xxxiv Diocesan Convention of Maryland. [1906 

0. In case of the absence of the Bishop, or of a vacancy in 
the Episcopate, the person who called the Convention to 
order shall announce that there is a quorum present. The 
Convention shall then proceed to elect a President, according 
to the seventh article of the Constitution ; who shall, so soon 
as his election is completed, take the chair and declare that 
the Convention is organized and ready for business. 

0. The first business after the declaration is made, either 
by the Bishop or the President, shall be the election of a Sec- 
retary. The Chair shall then appoint an Assistant Secretary 
and the Committees mentioned in the Order of Business ( No. 
III). The Chair shall also appoint all other Committees for 
the appointment of which no other provision is made ; unless 
otherwise ordered by the Convention. 

7. When any member is about to speak or deliver any 
matter to the Convention, he shall arise, and, with due re- 
spect, address himself to the President. 

' 8. If two or more members shall arise at the same time to 
speak, the President shall decide who shall speak. 

9 No member shall speak more than twice in the same 
debate, nor longer than fifteen minutes at one time, without 
leave of the Convention. 

10. No motion shall be debated until the same be sec- 
onded, and, if desired by any member, reduced to writing and 
read by the Secretary. 

11. When a motion is made and seconded, no other mo- 
tion shall be received, except to adjourn, to lav on the table, 
to postpone to a certain time, to postpone indefinitely, to com- 
mit or to amend: and motions for any of these purposes 
shall have precedence in the order herein named. If a mo- 
tion to lay on the table an amendment be carried, the matter 
before the Convention shall be proceeded with as if no such 
amendment had been oiTered. The motions to lay on the 
table and to adjourn shall be decided without debate. The 
motion to adjourn shall always be in order, if the mover has 
the floor. 



1906] Rules of Order, xxxv 

12. When a proposed amendment is under consideration, 
a motion to amend the same may be made. No after amend- 
ments shall be in order, but a substitute for both amend- 
ments may be received, which, if adopted, shall operate as an 
amendment to the original proposition. No proposition on a 
subject different from the one under consideration shall be 
received under color of an amendment or substitute. 

13. If a question contains several distinct propositions, 
the same shall be divided at the request of any member, and 
a vote taken separately, except that a motion to strike out 
and insert shall be indivisible. 

14. All questions of order shall be decided by the Presi- 
dent, without debate ; but any member may appeal from such 
decision, and on such appeal no member shall speak more 
than once, without express leave of the Convention. 

15. When any member anises to a point of order, the 
member who has the floor shall take his seat until the point 
of order is decided by the Chair. 

16. A question being once determined, shall stand as the 
judgment of the Convention, and shall not be again drawn 
into debate during the session, except with the consent of 
two-thirds of the Convention, upon a motion to reconsider 
made by a member who voted with the majority and sec- 
onded by a member who also voted with the majority. 

17. No question shall be taken on any report unless upon a 
motion to print or recommit it ; but reports shall, as of course, 
lie upon the table If a Committee deem any action of the 
Convention desirable, it shall be its duty to present in writing 
such Resolutions, Acts or Canons, as it may think it should 
adopt; which only shall be subject to the action of the Con- 
vention. Every act which divides a Parish, or in any way 
affects Parish boundaries, shall distinctly set out the new 
boundaries which it is intended to establish. The Convention 
will not act upon any proposed Resolution, Act or Canon 
which is not conformed to the provisions of this rule. 

18. All elections shall be by ballot, unless otherwise or- 
dered; the votes of the Clergy and Laity shall be received 



xxxvi Diocesan Convention of Maryland. [1906 

and counted separately ; but the vote shall be regarded as a 
joint one, and the election shall be decided by a majority of 
the whole number of votes taken together, except where a 
vote by orders shall be required under the provisions of the 
Constitution. 

19. When a joint ballot is taken, the procedure shall be as 
follows : The President shall appoint two tellers on the part

The Rev. Arthur ChiUon Powell, D. D., presented the fol- 
lowing Report of the Standing Committee : 

RjEPORT OF THE Standing Committee. 

The Standing Committee begs leave to report, that after its elec- 
tion at the last Diocesan Convention, it organized by choosing the 
Rev. J. Houston Eccleston, D. D., to be its President, and the Rev. 
Arthur Chilton Powell, D. D., to be its Secretary. 

In the past conventional year the Standing Committee has held 
nine meetings. 

It has recommended to the Bishop of the Diocese, for admission 
' as candidates for Holy Orders, Eugene Sebastian Pearce, Henry 
Vaughan Saunders, Benjamin Duval Chambers, Lionel Bligh Perry- 
Ayscough, Louis H. Ewald and Joseph T. Singewald; and for ad- 
mission to the Sacred Order of Deacons, Hugh White SheflFey 
Powers, Ernest Albert Rich, Richard Johnston Campbell, George 
Griffiths and Charles Ledyard Atwater; and for admission to the 
Sacred Order of Priests, Hugh White SheflFey Powers and T. Getz 
Hill. 

The Standing Committee has given consent to the consecration 
of the^Rev. Frederick Foote Johnson to be Missionary Bishop to 
assist the Missionary Bishop of South Dakota, and of the Rev. 
Charles David Williams, D. D., to be Bishop of Michigan, and of 
the Rev. Edward Melville Parker, to be Bishop-Coadjutor of New 
Hampshire, and of the Rev William Walter Webb, D. D., to be 
Bishop-Coadjutor of Milwaukee, and of the Rev. John Newton 
McCormick, D. D., to be Bishop-Coadjutor of Western Michigan. 

Owing to his removal from the Diocese, the Rev. William Howard 
Falkner resigned his membership of the Standing Committee in 
February last, and the Rev. Percy Foster Hall was elected to fil! 
the vacancy. Respectfully submitted, on behalf of the Committee, 

Arthur Chilton Powell, Secretary. 

The Rev. Robert H. Paine presented the following Re- 
port of the Committee on New Parishes and Congregations^ 
and the three resolutions accompanying the same were 
adopted : 

Report of the Committee on New Parishes and Congregations. 
To the Convention of the Diocese of Maryland: 

The Committtee on the Admission of New Parishes and Congrega- 
tions respectfully report, that they have had delivered to them, ])y 



4 Diocesan Convention of Maryland. [1906 

the Bishop, papers from the Church of the Holy Cross, Baltimore, 
and the Church of the Epiphany, Baltimore County, asking to be 
admitted into union with the Convention, and papers from persons 
living in Roland Park and vicinity, asking leave to organize a sepa- 
rate congregation; that they have examined these papers and find 
them to be in regular form, according to Canon VII, and they rec- 
ommend the adoption by this Convention of these resolutions ac- 
companying this report, as provided by form Nos. XI and VII, pp. 
77, 75, of the Compilation. 

May 30, 1906. Robert H. Paine, for the Committee. 

I. Resolved, By the Convention of the Protestant Episcopal Church 
of the Diocese of Maryland, That the new congregation formed in 
Baltimore City, under the name of the Church of the Holy Cross, 
Baltimore, be, and the same is hereby, admitted into union with 
this Convention, and shall be entitled to all the rights secured to 
congregations organized according to the provisions of the Consti- 
tution and Canons of the Protestant Episcopal Church in this 
Diocese. 

II. Resolved, By the Convention of the Protestant Episcopal 
Church of the Diocese of Maryland, That the new congregation 
formed in Baltimore County, under the name of the Church of the 
Epiphany, Baltimore County, be, and the same is hereby, admitted 
into union with this Convention, and shall be entitled to all the 
rights secured to congregations organized according to the provi- 
sions of the Constitution and Canons of the Protestant Episcopal 
Church in this Diocese. 

III. Whereas, A petition has been presented by Thomas Marsh 
Smith and others, for leave to organize a new Congregation in St. 
Paul's Parish, Baltimore County, to be called St. David's Church; 
and it has been made to appear to this Convention that the requisite 
preliminaries have been complied with ; therefore, be it 

Resolved, By the Convention of the Protestant Episcopal Church 
of the Diocese of Maryland, That leave be, and same is, granted 
for the organization of said Congregation, as prayed for. 

Two members of the Committee on Elections, or Rights 
of Laymen to Seats, having been found to be absent, the 
Bishop then appointed Mr. Robert R. Henderson in the 
place" of Mr. Armstead M. Webb, and Mr. Conway W. 
Sams in the place of Mr. Alfred W. Lucas. 

The Rev. Arthur Chilton Powell, D. D., offered the fol- 
lowing Report of the Committee on Canons and Other 
Business : 



190(i] Journal of Proceedings, 5 

Report of rut Committee; on Canons and Other Business. 

The Committee on Canons (with which Mr. Joseph Packard and 
Mr. J. Wirt Randall were requested to assist in the preparation and 
publication of the new edition of the compilation) respectfully re- 
ports that it has not performed the duty with which it was charged, 
for the following reasons: 

That owing to the changes made, both in the matter and the 
arrangement of the Canons of the General Convention, by the Gen- 
eral Convention of 1904, many changes will have to be made in the 
Canon of the Diocese of Maryland, to bring them into harmony 
with the General Canons, the Committee is of the opinion that it 
would be wise to defer putting out the revised compilation until 
such changes shall be made by the Diocesan Convention. 

J. S. B. Hodges, 
Arthur Chilton Powell. 
Edwin B. Niver, 
Edward N. Rich. 

At 12 M. prayers for Missions were said by the Bishop. 

The Rev. Peregrine Wroth presented the following Report 
of the Committee appointed at the last Convention "to adopt 
such measures as may be deemed expedient to raise any sum 
that may be apportioned to the Diocese for Domestic and 
Foreign Missions:'' , 

Report of the Committee on Domestic and Foreign Missions. 

The Committee appointed at the last Annual Convention to 
"adopt such measures as it may deem expedient to excite and in- 
crease interest in Domestic and Foreign Missions," begs to report, 
that, in pursuance of the duty laid upon it, the Committee organ- 
ized in due time and manner, and after an investigation of the 
amounts contributed by the several Parishes and Congregations, as 
reported in the publication of the Domestic and Foreign Mission- 
ary Society for the year 1905, especially as compared with the 
previous year, took steps looking to the furtherance of its work. 

At the invitation of a Sub-committee of the Committee of Mis- 
sions, it invited, in an appeal to the Clergy and Congregations of the 
Diocese, and made arrangements for holding a Mass-Meeting in 
the interest of Missions early in the Epiphany Season at Ford's 
Opera House, in the City of Baltimore. Tickets of admission to 
this meeting were eagerly sought, and the attendance left nothing 
to be desired. The speakers on the occasion were the Bishop 



6 Diocesan Convention of Maryland. [1906 

of the Diocese, the Bishop- Coadjutor of the Diocese of Springfield, 
and the Rt. Rev. Frederick Courtney, D. D., of New York City. 
Mr. George C. Thomas was to have spoken, but was most un- 
fortunately detained by illness. This unhappy circumstance marred 
the program and more or less impaired the proper balance of the 
subjects for discussion. 

Though great interest was manifested in this large gathering, 
as attested by the presence of Clergy and representative Laymen, 
it seemed to be generally conceded that the results were not com- 
mensurate with the preparations made and far from the realization 
of hopes and expectations. There seems to be something lacking 
on our part in the availment of great opportunities. We are sure 
we have yet much to learn in conducting successfully great popu- 
lar assemblages. 

The Committee has but lately addressed a short statement and 
appeal to the Rectors of the Parishes and Congregations of the 
Diocese, commenting upon a gratifying increase in the contribu- 
tions reported by the Treasurer of the Domestic and Foreign Mis- 
sionary Society, as compared with the same date last year, and 
urging to further exertions in the effort to reach the amount ap- 
portioned to the Diocese. Respectfully submitted. 
Peregrin^ Wroth, for the Committee on foreign and Domestic 
Missions. 

j\Ir. Frederick M. Colston presented the following Report 
of the Committee on Ways and Means: 

Report of the Committee on Ways and Means. 
The Committee of Ways and Means, to whom the matter of the 
proceeds of the' sale, in June, 1900, of certain property ($2,434.55), 
was referred by the last Convention, report that they have exam- 
ined it, and find that the funds received, with other monies, were 
simply voted by Convention in the ordinary course of business for 
the payment of necessary and unusual expenses, without special 
knowledge of the source from which the funds in question were 
derived. 

Under the circumstances, it being impossible to pay such an 
amount without increasing the Diocesan Assessment, the Committee 
suggests that it might be well to direct the amoiint be taken from 
the Keerl Fund and be appropriated by the Convention to any 
Missionary purpose that it approves — or else abandon the whole 
matter- altogether and let the Keerl Fund rest for future service. 

Edgar G. Miller, 
Frederick M. Colston, 

Of the Committee.

The Rev. R. Heber Murphy presented the following Report 
of the Committee on -Metes and Bounds of Old Parishes : 

Report of the Committee on Metes and Bounds of Old Parishes. 

The Committee to whom was assigned the duty of looking into 
the Metes and Bounds of certain old Parishes, in order for the 
"clear defining of the boundaries" of the same, report as follows: 

Looking carefully into this matter, and after consulting those 
learned in canon law, your Committee concluded that, according to 
Act of Assembly of 1798, Section XXXIII, reading as follows: **It 
shall be lawful for the Convention of the Protestant Episcopal 
Church in the State to divide or unite parishes, as occasion may 
require, and to alter bounds ;" the Convention has full authority to 
define by resolution such boundaries as are uncertain. 

We, the Committee, therefore propose the following resolutions, 
defining the boundary lines which are uncertain : 

First, Resolved, That the line separating St. Paul's Parish, Balti- 
more County, and St. John's Parish, Baltimore and Harford Coun- 
ties, be, and is hereby declared to be, a straight line running from 
Middle River Station, on the Philadelphia, Baltimore and Wash- 
ington Railroad, to the eastern point of St. Thomas* Parish, on the 
Old Court Road, distant some two miles from the Gunpowder River 
at the point where the said Old Court Road intersects the Harford 
Turnpike. 

Second, Resoked, That a sliglit change be made, and is hereby 
made, in the line of Sherwood Parish for the more clearly defining 
of the same, altering the ninth course thereof to read as follows 
after ''Phoenix Factory :" **Thence southeasterly, following the 
County Road to the intersection of the Phoenix Road with the Sweet 
Air and Paper Mill Road; thence nearly due east to the point where 
the Jarrettsville Turnpike diverges from the Old York Road." 

Third, Resolved, That the line separating St. James* Parish, Bal- 
timore and Harford Counties, from St. John's Parish, in the same 
counties, be, and is hereby declared to be, a straight line running 
from the furthest eastern point of Sherwood Parish, where the 
Jarrettsville Turnpike diverges from the Old York Road, to Bynum 
Station, on the Maryland and Pennsylvania Raikoad. 

Fourth, Resolved, That the line separating St. James' Parish, Bal- 
timore and Harford Counties, from Deer Creek Parish, Harford 
County, be, and is hereby declared to be, the line of the Maryland 
and Pennsylvania Railroad from Bynum Station, on the Maryland 
and Pennsylvania Railroad,' to the Pennsylvania line. And, Re- 



8 Diocesan Convention of Maryland. [1906 

solved further, That the western line of St. James' Parish be limited 
by the lines of Immanuel and Western Run Parish and the line of 
Carroll County. 

Fifth, Resolved, That the line separating Severn Parish and St. 
Peter's Parish, Anne Arundel County, be, and is hereby declared to 
be, the Little Patuxent, from the mouth thereof unto the Baltimore 
and Potomac Railroad where it crosses the same, then following 
said railroad to the village of Severn, near which is the divisional 
line of Trinity and St. Peter's Parishes. 

Sixth, Resolved, That the northern and western lines of Queen 
Caroline Parish, Howard County, be, and are hereby declared to be, 
the county road running from Trinity Chapel, in Trinity Parish, 
in a northwestern course, to the village or town of Columbia, on the 
Ellicott City and Washington Turnpike; then following said turn- 
pike in a southerly direction to where it crosses the Big Patuxent. 

Seventh, Resolved, That the west line of St. Margaret's Parish, 
Anne Arundel County, be, and is hereby declared to be, except 
where it is bounded by St. Peter's and Trinity, the boundary lines 
of Baltimore and Howard Counties. 

Resolved, That your Committee be allowed to hold over, to report 
further at the next Convention. 

Signed by the Committee, 

R. Heber Murphy, 
HoBART Smith, 
R. A. Castleman. 

Mr. DeCourcy W. Thorn offered the following resolution, 
which was duly seconded: 

Resolved, That the sum of twenty-five hundred dollars ($2,500) 
be appropriated from the income of the Keerl Fund for the use of 
the Vestry of St. Andrew's Church, of Baltimore City, Maryland, 
for the completion of the said church. 

Mr. John M. Glenn moved that the above resolution be 
referred to the Committee of Missions, with the power to act, 
which was lost. 

The resolution offered bv Mr. Thom, was then considered, 
and lost. 

Mr. Edward N. Rich offered the following resolution, and 
moved that it be made the special order at 2.15 P. M. today: 

Resolved, That the sum of twenty-five thousand dollars ($25,000) 
be, and is, hereby donated from the Keerl Fund for the purpose of 
making the improvements to the Hannah More Academy, which the 



190G] Journal of Proceedings, 9 

Trustees thereof have reported are imperatively needed; and that 
the Treasurer of the Convention, the Trustees of the Keerl Fund 
and other proper officers be, and are hereby, authorized to pay the 
same sum at any time hereafter on the order of William Keyser, 
Jr., Treasurer of the Hannah More Academy. 

Rev. George F. Bragg, D. D., presented the following 
resolutfon, which was adopted : 

Whereas, At the last meeting of the General Convention, held in 
Boston, the whole subject of Missionary Districts and Negro 
Bishops for the Colored Race was referred to a Special Commis- 
sion, "to gather information, to ascertain the mind of the Church, 
and to propose to the next General Convention such legislation as 
they may think desirable to meet the conditions;" and. 

Whereas, It was further requested that "this matter be brought 
before the respective Councils and Convocations with a view 
of having it fully discussed; and that they transmit to this Joint 
Commission as soon as may be convenient the action which may be 
taken by them;" therefore, be it 

Resolved, That a committee of four clergymen and three laymen 
be appointed to consider the subject, and to report to the next meet- 
ing of this Convention what action, in their judgment, should be 
taken by this body touching the question. 

The Rev. F. Ward Denys presented the Report of the

in 1907, and oflfeted the following resolution : 



10 Diocesan Convention of Maryland, [1906 

Resolved, That the next Annual Session of the Convention be 
held in Memorial Church, Baltimore. 

Mr. Joseph Packard stated that Emmanuel Church, Balti- 
more, would be glad to have the Convention of 1907 meet 
there, and the Rev. Percy F. Hall then moved to amend the 
above resolution by striking out the words ^'Memorial 
Church" and inserting the words "Emmanuel Church" in 
lieu thereof. 

This amendment was lost, and the resolution as offered 
originally was then adopted.

1906] Journal of Proceedings, 21 

land and Virginia, it is proposed that the Church in the Diocese of 
Maryland take part in this commemoration by the donation of a 
suitable window in the Church at Jamestown; therefore 

Resolved by the Convention of the Protestant Episcopal Church 
of the Diocese of Maryland, That it heartily commends this move- 
ment to erect a memorial window in the Jamestown Church, and 
that the Bishop be and is hereby requested to appoint a Committee 
of two clergymen and three laymen to coUecct, by private subscrip- 
tion, the funds necessary for this purpose and to present this 
window in the name of the Diocese of Maryland to the Association 
for the Preservation of Virginia Antiquities, which has so patrioti- 
cally undertaken the restoration of the old Jamestown Church, as a 
memorial of this early missionary enterprise, and especially of the 
labors of the noble and self-sacrificing clergymen who gave up their 
lives in the initial effort for the establishment of the Anglican 
Church in this country. 

Rev. R. Heber Murphy presented the following Report 
of the Committee on the Records of the Diocese : 

Report of the Committee on the Records of the Diocese. 

The Committee on the Records respectfully reports that after the 
sad and sudden death of our late Librarian, Mr. George J. Coe, Mr. 
Laurence C. Wroth entered upon the work, and as keeper of the 
Records has shown a readiness to do the work quite as acceptably as 
his predecessors. He reports accessions during the year as follows: 
one book containing the Vestry proceedings of Trinity Parish, 
Charles County, Maryland; one volume of Vestry Records and one 
of Parish Records of St. John's, Western Run; two volumes of a 
private record kept by Bishop Paret of his baptisms, marriages, etc., 
from 1852 to 1881 ; two volumes of minutes of the Standing Com- 
mittee, extending from 1804 to 1846, given by Mr. Powell, as Sec- 
retary of that Committee; the confirmation reports for the year, 
and the Convention Journals of nearly all the Dioceses. 

The volume containing the Vestry Proceedings of St. John's, 
Harford and Baltimore Counties has been bound and repaired. 
The Parish Register of Christ Church, Calvert, was rebound — as 
much of the original parchment as possible, however, being retained 
as part of the cover. The confirmation reports were bound as 
usual. The total cost of binding for the year was $4.25. Your at- 
tention is respectfully called to the fact that many old and valuable 
parish records are sadly in need of rebacking and similarly preserva- 
tive attentions. Steps have been taken looking to this end. 



"22 Diocesan Convention of Maryland. [1906 

An effort has been made to procure the Convention journals 
lacking to complete our collection. Five or six missing ones of 
recent date have been received, and one that had long been looked 
upon as impossible to find. 

The use of the records for reference purposes has been constant 
and gratifying. Confirmations have been verified, genealogical ma- 
terial has been sought for, and in some cases found, and the his- 
torical manuscripts have been used frequently in aid of biographers 
and historical writers. 

The vault, it may be said with certainty, has dried out com- 
pletely. Xo mould appears on the books kept there, and other tests 
for dampness show that little, if any, exists. 

The amount of cash to the credit of the Committee in the Savings 
Bank of Baltimore is $265.70. 

Late fires suggest again to your Committee the advisability of 
placing old Vestry and Parish Record Books in the hands of this 
Committee for safekeeping in the fireproof vault. The Historical 
Society are ready to make careful copies of all such volumes. 

George Armistead Leakin, 
R. Heber Murphy, 
G. Herbert Boehm. 

The Rev. William Meade Dame, D. D., moved that the 
order of the day be changed so as to proceed imimediately to 
the election of the Standing Committee. Objection having 
been made, the motion was withdrawn. 

On motion of Mr. Joseph P&ckard, Mr. Edgar G. Miller 
was nominated for Treasurer of the Convention, and, the 
ballot being dispensed with, he was unanimously elected. 

On motion of the Rev. Arthur Chilton Powell, D. D., the 
Rev. Joseph Fletcher was nominated as one of the Trustees 
of Warfield College, in the place of the Rev. William How- 
ard Falkner, and, the ballot being dispensed with, he was 
unanimously elected. 

The Rev. John I. Yellott, Jr., nominated the following as 
the Committee of IMissions, viz.: The Rev. Edwin B. Niver, 
the Rev. Robert S. Coupland, the Rev. Percy Foster Hall, 
Mr. Samuel J. Hough, ]\Ir. H. Irvine Keyser and Mr. Nor- 
man James. The ballot was dispensed with, and they were

mously elected.

Jr., and ^Ir. B. Howard Griswold, Jr., as Trustees of the

The Secretary presented the following Report of the Com- 
mittee on the Bequest of Eleanor C. Thomas: 

The Rt. Rev. JVilUam Paret, Bishop of Maryland, and the Conven- 
Hon of the Diocese of Maryland: 

The undersigned Committee respectfully report that the legacy 
bequeathed to the Diocese by the will of Miss Eleanor C. Thomas 
consists now of the sum of four hundred dollars, less a collateral 
inheritance tax on that sum, and a further collateral inheritance 
tax on a judgment of eighteen hundred and twenty- three dollars, 
which is included in the legacy. The Orphans' Court required the 
executor to pay the tax on the judgment, although it is doubtful 
whether that judgment can be collected. Your Committee obtained 
the passage of an Act of Assembly authorizing the refunding of the 
tax paid on the judgment. As soon as that is done the sum of 
four hundred dollars will be paid by the executor to the order of 
the Convention. In the meantime an effort will be made to collect 
the judgment. Respectfully submitted, 

Ferdinand Williams, 
J. Clarence Lane. 

The hour of 10.30 A. M. having arrived, the Convention 
proceeded to the special order of the day, viz., the election of 
the Standing Committee. 

The Bishop appointed the Rev. Charles A. Hensel and the 
Rev. Edward Livingston Kemp as tellers on the part of the 
Clergy, and Mr. Arthur H. Jackson and Mr. Philen\on J I. 
Tuck as tellers on the part of the Laity. 

The ballot was then taken, and the tellers retired. 



24 Diocesan Convention of Maryland. [1906 

The Rev. James L. Siniley offered the following preamble 
and resolution : 

Whereas, There is a widespread disregard of the Sabbath prin- 
ciple, and thousands of toilers are being deprived the apportion- 
ment of rest prescribed by the Fourth Commandment ; therefore, be 
it 

Resolved, That the Convention of the Protestant Episcopal Church 
of the Diocese of Maryland do hereby express a most earnest pro- 
test against the practice of employing men's services for more than 
six days per week. 

Resolved y That we urge upon all Church members the paramount 
duty of observing this Fourth Commandment in every sphere of 
life — personal, domestic and official. 

Resolved, That we recognize the fact that corporations and muni- 
cipalities are directed largely by Christians, Jews and other Sabba- 
tarians, and stock therein is held in great measure by religious per- 
sons and organizations ; and that, therefore, the responsibility for the 
correction of this evil devolves chiefly upon the Churches. 

Resolved, That a Committee be appointed by the Bishop, to be 
known as "The Sabbath Defense Committee," and to consist of 
three clerical and three lay delegates, at least two of whom shall 
be gentlemen learned in the law, to study this question thoroughly, 
and to take such wise and effective action as the situation demands. 

Mr. J. Wirt Randall moved that the resolution be laid 
upon the table, which was carried by a vote of forty-one in 
the affirmative and seventeen in the negative. 

Mr. Joseph Packard offered the following resolution, 
which was adopted: 

Resolved, That this Convention earnestly commends to the at- 
tention of the Clergy and Lay Delegates the Missionary Thank 
Offering appointed by the General Convention for the year 1907, 
and urges upon the Laity full and hearty co-operation therein. 

The Bishop called the attention of the Convention to the 
fact that in the past there was an officer known as the His- 
toriographer of the Diocese, and offered the following reso- 
lution, which was adopted :

THE BISHOPS ADDRESS. 



The Lord be with you, dear brethren; may His gracious help 
be wtih us, as we meet today to study the way in which we have 
done our duty in the past year, and the way in which we can 
better do it in the year to come, in winning souls to the bless- 
ings of the Gospel in His Church. 

I must begin by expressing my own glad gratitude for the 
continuance of health and strength for my work, much beyond 
what I had dared to hope. You will remember that at the last 
meeting of the Convention, I gave it as my judgment that 
"in consideration of my own advanced and advancing age," the 
Diocese should have the help of a Bishop-Coadjutor. But I 
yielded to your loving protests, which moved me greatly, and 
I did not make the formal request. With your consent I sought 
relief by changing my system of visitations, so that the rural 
parishes, instead of being visited every year, as heretofore, 
should be visited only once in two years. I have tried to follow 
that rule; but, judging by numbers, it does not seem to have 
had much effect. The number of visitations has been almost the 
same as last year, and the number of persons confirmed even 
greater. 

Yet, a change in method has given relief in another way. I 
have been able to take longer periods of rest. There are several 
weeks in midwinter, and several in midsummer, when the clergy 
generally tell me that visitations from the Bishop would be 
untimely. And by taking those weeks for absence and rest, while 
' still continuing, by the mails, all other Diocesan business, I 
have been able so to husband my strength as to be better fitted 
for the work at other times; and I feel that the Diocese has 
not suffered by these temporary absences. 

Of the 87 parishes and incorporated congregations, and 20 
Diocesan Missionary stations, I have visited 87, and confirmed 
1,396 persons, a number larger than that of last year or of the 
year before. I have preached 92 times and given 64 addresses, 
and have administered the Holy Communion 38 times. I held 
three ordinations, have consecrated two Churches, have laid one 
cornerstone, have held one service for the dedication of a Parish

House, have baptized one infant, and solemnized seven mar- 
riages. The more minute record of these acts will be published 
in the Journal as a sequel to this address. 

It is not often that I can report, as I now do, that during the 
year no name has been taken by death from our roll of clergy.

Deacons. Seven have been transferred to other Dioceses by 
Letters Dimissory, namely: 

The Rev. Alexander Gait, to Virginia. 

The Rev. Alexander C. Haverstick, to Maine.

The Rev. Wm. H. Falkner, to Kentucky. 

The Rev. Edward M. Jefferys, to Pennsylvania.

1906] Address of the Bishop. 29 

In our study of the condition of the Diocese, I name first 
the fact that there are seven parishes at this time without Rec- 
tors, and that in some of them the vacancy has been long and 
continued. May I give some counsel upon this matter? It has 
been sometimes urged that greater power here should be given 
to the Bishop; and even that he should have authority to ap- 
point. I do not think that the Bishops wish any such power. 
I, for one, do not. The Missionary Stations, which are not 
incorporated, and have no vestries, do indeed come under the 
Bishop's immediate supervision, and he has, and uses in such 
cases, his power of appointment. But in an organized parish, 
or congregation, with its own vestry, I am sure that the re- 
lation between pastor and people can be more happily estab- 
lished and maintained when the Rector is the choice of the 
parish, after careful deliberation. 

The new Canon on this subject is supposed, by some, to add 
largely to the Bishop's powers; but it does not. It gives him no 
authority to veto, or to control, but only opportunity to advise. 
The vestry, having come to agreement as to the one whom they 
wish to call, must submit his name to the Bishop, and wait a 
certain time (a month, if necessary, but not more) for the 
Bishop to communicate with them. It may be that the Bishop has 
no special advice to give; and in that case he would promptly say 
so. Or it may be that he has grave reasons for not approving the 
choice; and in that case, while his advice would be entitled to, 
and would no doubt receive, respectful consideration, the vestry 
would still be free not to follow it, should they so determine. 
And upon the vestry that responsibility must rest. It is not thi 
congregation that elects, but the vestry, to whom the congrega- 
tion has, by the laws of the Church, entrusted that power. It 
is always a fruitful source of parochial dissension, when that 
decison is left open for the canvassing of the whole congrega- 
tion; and worse still when, by a harmful usage (now I am glad 
to say, almost entirely abandoned) clergymen are permitted to 
preach as candidates. Each little group will at once have its 
favorite choice, and the open discussion of the merits will im- 
pair the full hearty acceptance of the one finally chosen. 

Far better that the vestry should act strongly upon the power 
legally entrusted to them, and keep the names of those whom 
they may be considering, as far as possible to themselves, and 
out of public discussion. And it is important that they should 
act promptly and unanimously; promptly, because the longer the 
vacancy, the greater the danger of parochial dissension. And 



80 Diocesan Convention of Maryland. [1906 

unanimously, because a new Rector needs the full support of his 
vestry. If there be but one member who believes the man pro- 
posed not suited to the place and work, and cannot give him his 
vote, let that name be at once dropped, and a new one be 
considered. Let the vestries recognize their full responsibility, 
and act upon it, not in the fear of the congregation, but in the 
fear of God. 

I must again speak of the difficulty of providing for the ser- 
vices and work in our weaker parishes and missions in the 
country parts of the Diocese. Instead of six deacons, we ought 
to have twenty, whom the Bishop, as the Canons empower him 
to do, could send where they were most needed. And we ought 
to have a goodly number of laymen able and willing to do 
missionary duty; ready not only to read prayers, but, with the 
Bishop's license, to give exhortation and addresses. Unless we 
can do something of this kind, I fear we shall not helpfully reach 
the scattered sheep, who, not living near a church, must be 
sought and ministered to by cottage services. I beg clergy and 
parents to be earnest in looking for young lads and men for 
' Gospel work. I do not think it is the scantiness of salaries that 
stands in the way. We have men in Maryland parishes who 
have, for Christ's sake, cheerfully endured that hardship. And 
I thank them, and I know God blesses them for their courage and 
their patience. 

But it is hard and discouraging for a young man to begin his 
ministry with a work which, if not dying, has little or no pros- 
pect of growth. There is little to awake enthusiasm or earnest- 
ness. And in many of our country parishes the steady flow city- 
ward is continually draining parish strength. The American 
longing for progress shrinks from this. Yet in England there 
are great numbers of men admirably qualified, who are willing, 
for Christ's sake, to abide in the quiet pastorship, and minister 
to a feeble flock, whose souls are as dear to the Lord as those 
in any of the strongest churches. I think of the Rev. Dr. 
Tait, who afterwards became Archbishop of Canterbury, who 
spent the first years of his ministry among a handful of rude 
people at the mouth of a coal mine, and felt that he was doing 
the Lord's work there as truly as when he ministered in the 
grand Cathedral. 

Among things deserving notice in the history of the Con- 
ventional year, I name, first, the Longwell Bequest. By the 
will of Miss Sallie Longwell of the City of Westminster, her 
mansion house with 15 acres of land, and $10,000 in money, was 



1906] Address of the Bishop, 31 

left for establishing and maintaining under the auspices of the 
Protestant Episcopal Church, "an institution for benevolent, 
charitable, or educational purposes only." Should I decline 
to accept it, it was to pass to the Presbytery of Baltimore, for 
the same uses. And should they also decline, the property was 
to be sold, and the proceeds to be divided between the Domestic 
and Foreign Missionary Society of the Protestant Episcopal 
Church, and the Board of Foreign Missions of the Presbyterian 
Church. Having had some unhappy experience in trying to 
sustain church institutions upon inadequate endowments, I 
sought the advice of our Committee on Donations and Bequests, 
and then proposed to the Presbytery that both parties should 
agree in declining, and so permit the property to be divided. The 
Presbytery, however, answered that they could not agree to my 
proposal. Whereupon, convinced that it would require to main- 
tain the institution a sum of money very much larger than what 
had been provided, I formally notified the executor of the estate 
that I could not accept the bequest as proposed. 

I have to report as matters of encouragement, that during the 
year two substantial Missionary Churches have been built and 
completed. One at Annapolis, for the use of the congregation 
of colored people, of St. Philip's Mission; and one at High- 
landtown, one of the suburbs of Baltimore. In both instances 
we were largely helped from the income of the Keerl Fund. 
By action of the Convention, all of such income, not otherwise 
appropriated, was placed at the disposal of the Committee of 
^Missions. And that Committee wisely determined that it should 
"be used only for new, or bolder, or more aggressive Missionary 
work. 

In the Mission at Hjghlandtown we have found strength and 
encouragement in the zeal of one of our stronger city churches. 
The Rev. Mr. Coupland, Rector of the Church of the Ascension, 
asked that some Mission might be placed under their working 
care. He would undertake not the money support, but the sup- 
ply of the services, and the Sunday School and visiting work 
of a band of his own earnest Church workers. I gladly so 
assigned to him the care of the Highlandtown Mission. 

The Rev. Mr. Lee, Rector of St. Thomas' Church, Homestead, 
is helpfully carrying on a new Mission near Loch Raven in 
Baltimore County, where a building formerly used by another 
Christian body has been placed at our disposal. The Rector of 
the Church of St. Michael and All Angels, having strongly 
established his Mission work at the Chapel of the Guardian 



32 Diocesan Convention of Maryland, [1906 

Angel, has, with the consent of the neighboring clergy, begun a 
new Mission in the far northeastern part of the city. 

The Rector of Holy Trinity Parish, Sykesville, is strongly 
conducting services at a new point in his parish. 

And at St. Helena, in Baltimore County, the work of the 
Laymen's League has been so effective that lots for building 
have been secured, and steps are being taken for building a 
chapel. And at Roland Park, by the energetic action of the 
people themselves, ground has been procured and work begun 
for building a church. 

It may be well to remember and use these facts in answer to 
an objection, sometimes urged, but wrongly, that our missionary 
funds are used chiefly in upholding worn-out churches. Here 
are seven instances within the year of new forward movement. 

I have much more to say to you about our Diocesan Mission- 
ary work; but I purposely keep that for our Missionary session 
this evening, where I have asked the privilege of being one of 
the speakers. But I must here indicate two things about which 
I wish then to speak more fully. The first is the need of a 
change in the work of our rural parishes, by a much larger use 
of cottage services, neighborhood Sunday Schools or classes, 
and like methods for reaching the scattered people. In the few 
instances in which, under the Bishop's urging, these methods 
have been earnestly tried, the result has been even larger than 
we dared to hope. 

Another point of which I wish to speak more fully this 
evening is the employment of a General Missionary for the Dio- 
cese. If the right man can be had, and the money needed can 
be supplied, I am sure it would wonderfully strengthen and in- 
crease our work. 

And now I feel that I must depart from my usual method, and 
ask your attention to something of interest beyond our Dioce- 
san lines. I have steadfastly said "No" to the many re- 
quests that I should permit the introduction of some matters 
which at the time were much in the people's thought, or that 
I should allow the representatives of certain institutions or 
societies to present and plead their claims. But I have felt that 
there were other times and ways in which such things could be 
better done, and that the Convention of the Diocese of Mary- 
land existed for, and met to consider and act upon, the work of the 
Church in Maryland; and that the more closely it confined it- 
self to its own proper business, the more effective it would be. 

But there comes now a call in which I want Maryland as a 
Diocese, and every Churchman in it, to take earnest part. In 



1906] Address of the Bishop, 33 

October of next year the great General Convention of our 
Church is to meet at Richmond in Virginia; and quite near that 
place is Jamestown, where 300 years ago, in 1607, the first per- 
manent settlement was made in this land by English-speaking 
people; and from that place and year we date the beginning 
in this land of the American branch of the Holy Catholic Church 
as it was planted in England in early Apostolic days. The 
Church has authoritatively determined to have at that coming 
Convention a service and offering of thanksgiving for that event 
from which have grown this great Nation, with its liberties, 
civil and ecclesiastical, and the prosperity which has followed 
our Church and made it rich with God's blessing. I beg that all 
the Churchmen of Maryland may put their enthusiastic zeal in 
this effort, and let their deeds express their thankfulness. At 
proper time during our session I will ask your hearing for a 
fuller statement from those prepared to make it. 

With these suggestions, and in good hope of God's blessing on 
our effort to carry on the growth in the Church life of Maryland, 
we will turn to the duties immediately before us.

CONVENTION REPORTS. 



Report oi the Committee oi Missions 

For the year ending April 30, 1906. 



To the Convention of the Diocese of Maryland: 

Your Committee of Missions asks to submit the following 
report: 

The Convention of 1905 authorized the Committee of Mis- 
sions to apportion and appropriate the sum of $11,000.00 for the 
missionary work of the Diocese for the year then ensuing. 

Your Committee has apportioned that sum to the Arch- 
deaconries as follows: 

Annapolis, $880.00, or $10.00 in excess of last year's apportion- 
ment; Baltimore, $7,370.00, or $570.00 in excess of last year's 
apportionment; Cumberland, $880.00, or $80.00 in excess of last 
year's apportionment; Towson, $1,870.00, or $340.00 in excess of 
last year's apportionment. 

Your Committee has appropriated to the Archdeaconries the 
following sums: 

Annapolis, $2,935.00, an increase of $250.00 over last year; 
Baltimore, $3,275.00, or an increase of $1,125.00 over last year; 
Cumberland, $2,515.00, a decrease of $275.00 under last year; 
Towson, $2,100.00, a decrease of $50.00 under last year; reserving 
$175.00 for emergencies. 

By resolution of the Convention of 1905 the several parishes, 
congregations and missions were requested to contribute be- 
yond the amounts suggested to them in their apportionments, 
an amount equal to one-fifth of the same to be used in pastoral 
aid to increase salaries. How far this resolution has been heeded 
will appear as this report continues. 

THE ARCHDEACONRIES. 

The Archdeaconry of Annapolis added to its apportionment 
the sum of $144.00, making in all $1,024.00; and has paid in 
$962.43, which sum is $82.43 greater than the apportionment of 
the Committee of Missions. In the matter of the fund for in- 

(53) 



54 Diocesan Convention of Maryland, [1906 

creasing salaries this Archdeaconry did not reach the amount 
collected last year by the sum of $70.60. The Archdeacon com- 
plains of the delay in the time in which these payments are 
made, but hopes that the whole amount promised will be paid. 
He states that there are four vacancies in the Archdeaconry, 
but hopes these will be filled in reasonable time. He reports 
that the work at Solomon's Island is very encouraging, and he 
also reports the opening of a most encouraging mission at 
Brooklyn, Anne Arundel County, and also pledges to secure 
the payment of the mortgage debt upon the rectory at Curtis 
Bay. 

The Archdeaconry of Baltimore was apportioned the sum of 
$7,370.00, being $570.00 in excess of its apportionment for last 
year. It accepted as its apportionment $6,982.00. The amount 
paid in up to April 30 was $6,237.27, which is larger by $1,162.17 
than the amount paid in at the same time last year. All of the 
appropriations for this Archdeaconry have been called for by 
the beneficiaries under them and paid to them. Thirteen 
churches have paid $720.37 for the fund for increasing 
salaries, whereas last year only eight churches contributed, and 
the amount contributed was only $468.59. The Chapel at High- 
landtown has been completed, and the services there will be 
under the direction of the Church of the Ascension. The Chapel 
of the Nativity has been started by the Church of St. Michael 
and All Angels, on Montebello Avenue and Twenty-third Street. 
The Laymen's League conducts services at St. Helena, South 
Charles Street Mission and at Bayview. Twelve members of 
the League are acting under the direction of the Archdeacon. 
The services at all these places are without expense to the 
Archdeaconry. The Archdeacon reports that the movement in 
the whole Archdeaconry has been forward all along the line. 

The Archdeaconry of Cumberland added to its apportionment 
the sum of $73.50, making in all $953-50, and has paid in $955- 18, 
being $1.68 greater than its own apportionment and $75.18 
greater than the apportionment of the Committee of Missions. 
In the matter of the fund for increasing salaries this Arch- 
deaconry was not so fortunate, and it fell short of the sum re- 
ceived last year by $64.50, but the Archdeacon thinks this amount 
will be made good. The Archdeacon reports that all of its 
appropriations for Diocesan Missions were not used in conse- 
quence of some vacancies in that Archdeaconry. He also 
states that in that Archdeaconry only one stipend for a married 
priest is below $825.00. He also notes a number of repairs and 



i

improvements to church buildings, and the marked im- 
provements in the missionary work at St. Peter's Church, 
Lonaconing, and Holy Cross at Cumberland, and in the interest 
of the clergy in maintaining services where required in other 
parts of the Archdeaconry. He gives it as his opinion that the 
Church is making progress in the towns, but that it is losing 
ground in the rural parishes. 

The Archdeaconry of Towson was apportioned the sum of 
$1,870.00, being $340.00 in excess of its apportionment for last 
year. The amount paid in up to April 30 was $1,615.12, which is 
larger by $190.63 than the amount paid in at the same time last 
year. Some of the payments have been delayed, but the Arch- 
deacon thinks that these obligations will be fully met. The 
amount received to April 30 for the fund for increasing salaries 
is $244.75, which is $4.75 in excess of the amount received at the 
same time last year. The amount appropriated to this Arch- 
deaconry has all been used and there have been no vacancies 
at any missionary point. 

THE KEERL FUND. 

There was a balance of this fund on hand at the beginning of 
the year of $1,389.80, and the receipts for the current year were 
$2,780.46, making a total of $4,170.26. Of this sum there has 
been paid to the Bishop for the work at Highlandtown, $2,789.80, 
and there is still held for this work, $1,380.46, total $4,170.26, 
which closes that account for the year. But your Committee has 
appropriated the sum of $2,000.00 for the Church of the Epiphany, 
on Ready Avenue, upon certain conditions, said amount to be 
taken from the income of the Keerl Fund for the coming year. 
At the suggestion of the Bishop, it has been made a rule of your 
Committee that the income of the Keerl Fund is to be used for 
new and aggressive work only. 

THE FUND FOR INCREASING SALARIES. 

The attempt of your Committee to carry out the purpose of 
the second resolution offered by your Committee and passed by 
the last Convention has resulted in the collection of $1,192.52 
and the payment of the sum of $909.00 to eleven clergymen, the 
purpose being to supplement the salaries of clergymen, so that 
the standard of salaries mentioned in the report of the Com- 
mittee of Missions for last year "of $750.00 for unmarried priests 



56 Diocesan Convention of Maryland, [1906 

and $850.00 and a rectory for married priests" shall be main- 
tained. The failure of your Committee to meet the requirements 
of the resolution, and the low standard then set up, rests solely, 
in the opinion of the Committee from carelessness or indiffer- 
ence on the part of those whose duty it is to clearly make 
known to the people, both the necessity for the assistance re- 
quired and the very small sacrifice on the part of the people 
necessary for the accomplishment of the purpose. This duty, in 
the opinion of your Committee, rests upon both the clerical 
and lay represntatives which compose the Convention. It is 
a matter of common knowledge that objects sought to be ac- 
complished by the Convention are but little known amongst 
our people. It has come to the knowledge of this Committee 
that a Treasurer of one of our parishes did not know that his 
parish was expected to contribute to Diocesan Missions. 

SUPERANNUATED AND DISABLED CLERGY FUND. 

Eight clergymen have been aided from this fund, receiving 
in all the sum of $3,683.33, each beneficiary receiving from $400.00 
to $600.00 per annum. There seems to be an increasing interest in 
this fund on the part of the people of the Diocese, and the fund 
is gradually approaching the amount that ought to be paid for 
retiring pensions. 

MISSIONARY MEETING. 

The Committee on increasing interest in Diocesan Missions 
reported in writing that in co-operation with the Committee of 
the Convention to increase interest in Missions, Domestic and 
Foreign, a mass meeting was held in Ford's Theatre on Sunday, 
January 7, 1906. The theatre w^as filled with an audience of about 
2,200 people. Addresses were made by the Bishop of Maryland, 
Bishop Osborne, of Springfield, and Bishop Courtney. An offer- 
ing was made, amounting to $327.00 in cash and about $400.00 
in pledges. We think the meeting was a great success, especially 
in giving evidence of the real interest of the Church people of 
Baltimore in Missions. 

A careful examination of the work which has devolved upon 
the Committee of Missions will show, your Committee believes, 
a steady growth both in the amount of work accomplished under 
its supervision and in the interest manifested in the work by the 
people themselves; and there are signs that can hardly be mis- 
taken that this growth will continue, especially in the towns 
and cities. The problem of missionary work in the country, 



1906] Diocesan Missions. 57 

however, presents some difficulties which are hard to be over- 
come and call for the most careful study and attention. The 
country people are still flocking to the cities and towns, thus 
strengthening the city work; and your Committee thinks that 
this circumstance creates a corresponding obligation on the part 
of our city people to extend a helping hand to the rural outposts. 
But while your Committee looks forward to the future with 
much hope, yet it does not believe that the Church is doing by 
any means all that it can or ought to do for the cause of Mis- 
sions. 

A mere glance at the Report of Mission work from the several 
Archdeaconries, and which will appear in the Journal of the 
Convention with this report, and a comparison of those ex- 
penditures with the various parishes and congregations, for pur- 
poses other than for Missions, as exhibited by the Parochial Re- 
ports (to both of which classes of reports the attention of the 
Convention is directed), will show that we are regarding the 
missionary work of the Diocese as one of the least important 
of the duties which have devolved upon us, instead of looking 
upon it as one of the very greatest. From these and from other 
sources of information your Committee is convinced that a 
larger and bolder work ought to be done in Baltimore City and 
elsewhere, but it will require more money than is now received 
from the parishes. Indeed, the Bishop now thinks that if a city 
missionary could be appointed and sustained, new and hopeful 
missions might be opened and many neglected souls might be 
brought in. There are many places in the Diocese of Maryland 
in which men and women are more needed to do the missionary 
work of the Church than there is need for money. Many of 
our Sunday Schools are doing but half-hearted work because 
they need helpers both by way of teaching and administration,, 
as well as by that sympathetic influence which can be exerted 
only by personal interest and presence of those who make up the 
community in which the Sunday School is situated (an influence 
too often exerted against, rather than in favor of, those who are 
engaged in the work). This quiet kind of work can and does 
exert an amount of influence for good which it would be hard 
to estimate, especially in our rural parishes, and this duty should 
be urged upon the laity of the Church by the clergy both by pre- 
cept and example. 

But after all, the plan for missionary work is not a matter of 
the first importance. We spend much time in making plans and 
working out theories by which we expect great things to be 



58 Diocesan Convention of Maryland. [1906 

accomplished. But the whole missionary scheme is in its last 
analysis an intensely personal matter, for if our people by some 
means are not led to believe that missionary work is not only a 
part, but a very great part, of that salvation which each one of 
us is to work out with fear and trembling, the particular scheme 
by which the missionary work is sought to be accomplished will 
matter but little; but when, on the other hand, each member of 
the Church is made to perceive his duty in this regard, the time 
will be at hand when we shall no longer be troubled with plans 
to raise means to further missionary enterprise, but rather to 
make plans whereby the great accumulation of funds may be 
expended to the best advantage. 

The Committee recommends the adoption of the following 
preamble and resolutions: 

Whereas, The Bishop has announced his wish to appoint a 
General Missionary for the Diocese, therefore — 

Resolved^ That the Committee of Missions be and is hereby 
authorized to apportion and appropriate $13,500.00 for the mis- 
sionary work of the Diocese for the ensuing year. 

Resolved^ That the several parishes, congregations and mis- 
sions be requested to contribute, beyond the amount suggested, 
to them in their apportionment, an amount equal to fifteen per 
cent, of the same, to be used in increasing insufficient salaries.

This amount is $253.78 in excess of last year's contributions 
for the same purpose. There was only one beneficiary of the 
fund in the Archdeaconry, the Rector of the Chapel of the Holy 
Evangelists, to whom was paid the sum of $106.67. 

Generally speaking, the missionary work of the Archdeaconry 
has been vigorously prosecuted with the agencies available. 
The full opportunity of this work, however, can only be met and 
its possibilities be realized by the appointment of a Missionary, 
who could in the discharge of his duties combine the office of 
Archdeacon of Baltimore with that of General Missionary, 
pushing the work of the city eight months of the year, and that 
of the rural Archdeaconries during the four summer months. 
The necessity of the appointment of such a man is supreme for 
the. successful prosecution of the work of the Church in a mis- 
sionary way in the City of Baltimore. 



1906] Diocesan Missions. 61 

The Laymen's League was organized by the Rev. William 
Howard Falkner, former Archdeacon. It comprises twelve mem- 
bers who are faithfully and successfully conducting service!^ 
every Sunday at Bayview, South Charles Street Mission, and 
SI. Helena. At this latter place the erection of a suitable church 
building is contemplated in the near future, the ground for 
same having already been secured and paid for. 

New work established during the year consists of the Chapel 
of the Nativity under the auspices of the Church of St. Michael 
and All Angles in the northeastern part of the city, and St. Philip's 
Chapel at Highlandtown, where services are conducted under 
the supervision of the Church of the Ascension. This latter 
Chapel was built by the Archdeaconry, the location of it being 
selected by former Archdeacon Falkner, and the Rev. Edward 
L. Kemp, Rector of the Church of the Holy Evangelists at 
Canton. 

Services are held in all the public institutions where provision 
is made by the authorities in charge for the proper conduct of 
the same, the Franklin Square Hospital being again included 
in the number. 

It is not too much to say that in the Archdeaconry as a whole, 
the movement has been forward all along the line during the 
year, and we have every inspiration for a bolder march during 
the year upon which we are just entering. 

Respectfully submitted, 

JOHN G. MURRAY, 
Archdeacon of Baltimore, 



REPORT OF THE ARCHDEACONRY OF TOWSON, 

Including Baltimore, Carroll and Harford Counties, 

For the year ending April 30, 1906. 

Rev. Hob art Smith, Archdeacon, 



The amount apportioned to this Archdeaconry to be raised 
was $1,870. The total amount raised up to the date of this re- 
port is $1,663.51, with the prospect that nearly the full amount 
will be paid by June i. In addition to this, $244.75 has been 
contributed to the "Fund for Increase of Salaries." 



62 Diocesan Convention of Maryland. [1906 

The appropriation to the Archdeaconry was $2,100, all of 
which has been expended in maintaining and advancing the 
Church work; every mission and Parish being manned through- 
out the year by faithful and energetic men. 

St. Clements'' Chapel, which had been closed, was reopened 
in July by the Rev. Joseph Baker, the mission at Rossville, and 
services held without interruption every Sunday afternoon. 

At the Church of the Holy Comforter, Rossville, the year has 
been one of quiet, earnest work, seven having been confirmed, 
and the Church more and more appreciated by the people. Two 
of the most useful men have recently died, and their loss will 
be seriously felt. 

The missionary for the northwestern part of Baltimore County, 
the Rev. R. Heber Murphy, has faithfully done his work at 
St. John's, Western Run, St. Luke's, Harrisonville, and the 
Freelands; and though there have been discouragements through 
removals and deaths he has kept the Church alive in these most 
difficult fields by his house-to-house visitation. 

At Grace Church, Mt. Winans, the Rev. G. S Fitzhugh has 
paid off an old indebtedness, spent $65 for repairs, all paid for; 
has added five to the Church by confirmation, received two by 
letter, besides five other communicants, who have recently identi- 
fied themselves with the work, making a total addition of twelve. 
The Sunday School has twenty-five children under the super- 
intendency of Mr. Van Meter, who is also a lay reader. 

The Church of the Transfiguration, West Arlington, Rev. 
William Rollins Webb, has been strengthened by the addition 
of some valuable and influential families, and the outlook there 
is encouraging on account of the increasing permanency of the 
population by the ownership of their homes. St. Mary's, Frank- 
lintown, under the same Rector, is reported to have a more fa- 
vorable outlook, by the proposed extension to that point of the 
electric cars. 

St. Andrew's Chapel, under the care of the Rev. Henry B. 
Lee, Rector St. Thomas' Church, Homestead, reports substantial 
progress. Six have been added by confirmation and the con- 
gregation has grown from six or eight regular attendants to 
about thirty-five. The Sunday School, which had only eight or 
ten scholars, now numbers thirty, besides three teachers. The 
Chapel has been painted on the outside, the chancel renovated 
and electric lights installed. Mr. Lee gives large credit for the 
development to the energy of Mr. Eugene S. Pearce, lay reader, 
a student from the Theological Seminary of Virginia, who has 



1906] Diocesan Missions. 68 

devoted Sundays to this work, but who will, in his vacation, live 
near the Chapel. A promising mission has also been started, 
by the same Rector, near Loch Raven, where he has ministered 
on Sunday afternoons to a congregation averaging fifty. 

The Rev. Mr. Lee deserves great credit for his work at these 
two points, in addition to his successful work at Homestead. 

St. Matthew's Church, Sparrows Point, the Rev. L. B. Browne, 
continues to grow in its congregations, its Sunday School and 
its financial contributions. As an instance of the last item, its 
Easter offering this year was $360, compared with $81 in 1898, 
the first year of the present incumbent. Mr. Brown, in addition 
to his work at Sparrows Point, has given interesting illustrated 
lectures on Diocesan Missions at many points in the Diocese. 

The space allowed for this report will not permit further 
details of growth in the Archdeaconry, except to mention Epi- 
phany Chapel, Ready Avenue, Rev. Carroll E. Harding, where, 
despite many disheartening delays in perfecting the title for 
their new lot, the enthusiasm and faithfulness of the congre- 
gation have increased, and the Sunday School has been developed 
by its laymen. Nearly $5,000 has been promised towards the 
new Church, which will be built as soon as the title of the ground 
is cleared.

66 Diocesan Convention of Maryland. [1906 

As usual, the Parishes and Congregations in the Archdeaconry 
of Annapolis went beyond the amount named by the Committee 
of Missions ($880) and accepted a total of $1,024, and promised 
$155 for the Fund for Increase of Salaries. Up to April 30, the 
receipts on Apportionments amount to $972.43, and on the Fund 
for Increase of Salaries $110.40. Of the amount still unpaid 
$40 is owed by a parish which has been vacant for nearly a year, 
while the balance will undoubtedly be paid before the opening 
of the Convention. While it is thus true that eventually the 
full amount of the accepted Apportionment is paid, yet it is 
unfortunate that payments are deferred until so late in the 
Convention year, which makes it especially hard to collect the 
Apportionment if the Rector or Missionary resigns towards the 
close of the year. 

To the Archdeaconry the Committee appropriated in bulk the 
sum of $2,935, which was appropriated by the Archdeaconry to 
ten points and was all called for save a few dollars. 

For the coming year we will need a slightly smaller sum 
($2,850), as St. Mary's Church, Jessup, is now under the care 
of a student from the Virginia Seminary. Seven of our clergy 
have received aid from the Fund for Increase of Salary. The 
fact that there were so many of our faithful missionaries re- 
ceiving less than $825 yearly, who were thus aided towards a 
living salary should be gratifying to those contributing to this 
Fund. 

There are now four vacancies within the limits of the Arch- 
deaconry, an unusual state of affairs, but it is hoped that they 
will shortly be filled and the work be successfully prosecuted as 
before. In all directions we see evidences of faithful work, — 
work which cannot be tabulated and made to appear to the 
casual observer, and it is difficult when all are laboring faithfully 
to speak of particular fields. 

The Rev. L. A. Wye's work at Solomon's is most encouraging 
and funds have been raised and pledged for a parish building for 
the use of the oystermen and others. The Rev. Mr. Shears 
reports larger congregations and increased interest at the Chapel 
at Scrabbletown. I can testify to the excellent Lenten congre- 
gations at Davidsonville. The Rev. Mr. Fitzhugh is holding his 
own at Curtis Bay, has secured pledges towards the payment of 
the mortgage debt on the Rectory. He has started a most en- 
couraging Sunday School at Brooklyn. The attendance is 
good and they have proved their interest in Diocesan Missions 
by voluntarily paying to the Missions Fund the sum of $7. 



1906] Diocesan Missions^ 67 

The work at Alberton is at present most discouraging, owing to 
the many removals of families of mill operatives. 

While we cannot materially decrease the amount asked for the 
coming year, it must be borne in mind by the members of the 
Convention that we are sending our best blood into the city life, 
and the many transferred to our cities and towns should convince 
our city Rectors and laymen that it is the truest and wisest policy 
to keep alive, and well alive at that, our rural parishes for our 
increasing loss means their gain. We are feeding them. 
Respectfully submitted, 

EDW. T. HELFENSTEIN, 
Howard County, April 30, 1906. Archdeacon of Annapolis, 



REPORT OF THE ARCHDEACONRY OF CUMBERLAND 

For the year ending April 30, 1905. 

Rev. John I. Yellott, Jr., Archdeacon. 



The Archdeaconry of Cumberland accepted for the year 
1905-6 an apportionment of $953.50, or $73.50 more than was 
asked of it by the Committee of Missions. At the close of the 
year, April 30, $955.18 had been received, every parish having 
paid its apportionment in full. This showing is particularly 
creditable in view of the fact that several parishes were without 
Rectors during a portion of the year. The Archdeaconry also 
pledged $167 towards the Increase of Salaries Fund, and on 
April 30 $119 had been received from thirteen churches, leaving a 
balance of $48 due from four churches, almost all of which will 
have been received, it is believed, by the date of the Convention. 

At present only one parish in the Archdeaconry is without a 
Rector, and only one married Rector is receiving a salary of 
less than $825 and a Rectory. 

Various improvements to the Church fabric have been made 
during the year at St. Matthew's Church, Oakland; St. Peter's 
Church, Lonaconing, and St. Thomas' Church, Hancock. The 
improvements in St. Peter's Church, Lonaconing, costing several 
hundred dollars, were made while it was under the charge of Mr. 
Louis Ewald, lay-reader, whose fourteen months' work there was 
very successful. Mr. Ewald has recently assumed charge of 
Holy Cross Church, Cumberland, and improvement in its work 
is already perceptible. 

The clergy of the Archdeaconry have been most faithful in 
providing administrations of the Holy Communion in the sev- 
eral churches served by deacons or lay-readers, and services

have also been maintained by them in parishes temporarily 
vacant. The general situation in the cities and towns in the 
Archdeaconry is felt to be satisfactory; the Church is there 
steadily growing. 

The situation in the country parishes is less satisfactory, owing 
to the fact that little or no gains offset the steady drain of 
losses through death and removal. When a city parish loses 
a member the gap is filled, more or less quickly and effectually, 
by those who are daily being added to the Church; when a 
country parish loses one of its leading members the loss is 
usually irreparable. Under such conditions it is impossible for 
the country parishes to relinquish much or any part of their 
appropriations from the Diocesan Missions Fund. Rather it 
requires very careful management of finances to enable them to 
continue with the appropriations unchanged from year to year. 

JOHN I. YELLOTT, Jr., 
Archdeacon.

1906] Diocesan Library. 109 

REPORT OF COMMITTEE ON DIOCESAN LIBRARY. 
(Journal, p. 16.) 

The Committee on the Diocesan Library has again to report a 
change of librarians during the conventional year. Mr. George 
Jarvis Coe, after serving as librarian for a little more than six 
months, died suddenly in the first week of August. He was 
succeeded October 1st, by Mr. Lawrence C. Wroth, who is perform- 
ing the duties of the office in an earnest and efficient way. 

The accessions to the library by purchase have numbered 50, 
about the same as last year. The accessions by donation number 
551 bound volumes and 133 pamphlets, about six times as many as 
last year. The increase is largely due to a notable donation of 450 
volumes from the Reverend Dr. J. S. B. Hodges, rector emeritus 
of St. Paul's Church, Baltimore. 

The full list of donations is as follows : 

Bound Volumes. Pamphlets. 

Bishop Paret 4 

Rev. J. S. B. Hodges, S. T. D 450 25 

Mrs. Whitting Griswold 90 33 

Judge D. R. Magruder 1 

Mrs. J. S. Leeds 1 

S. L. Phillips (author) 1 

Wallis Memorial Association 4 

Enoch Pratt Free Library 75 

Total donations 551 133 

The cataloguing of the books has gone ahead steadily. The works 
recently made more accessible through this means are in the 
Dalrymple Collection in the second room of the first story of the 
building. They include many valuable historical and biographical 
works, books of travel, and a rare and interesting collection dealing 
with sorcery and witchcraft. 

The circulation of the books has not been encouraging. Only 369 
books "were taken from the library for home use during the year, 
as over against 49 S the year before. 

Your Committee is extremely anxious to see a larger use of the 
many valuable books contained in this library of more than 30,000 
volumes. 



110 Diocesan Convention of Maryland, [1906 

To this end we would like to direct the attention of those who 
can personally visit the library, to the large and constantly increas- 
ing card catalogue of both authors and subjects, and to assure them 
of the librarian's readiness to show them the resources of the library 
in any department in which they may be especially interested. We 
would like also to remind those living at a distance, of the provision 
made to facilitate their use of the books. The library will pay the 
transportation one way of any books such persons desire to take 
out. Three books may be ordered at one time, and, unless unusually 
large, can be sent almost anywhere in the State for 25 cents. Any- 
one who writes to the librarian asking for books on a particular 
subject, will be sent the latest and best the library has on that 
subject, or, if he prefers, a suggestion list from which to choose. 

The use of the reading room with its church publications and 
papers, and the use of the library for purposes of consultation have 
been very much more satisfactory than the circulation of the books. 

In the last week of December, on the occasion of a reception 
given by the Bishop and Mrs. Paret, to the American Historical 
Association, the Bibliographical Society of America and the Ameri- 
can Association of Political Economists, an exhibition of rare books 
was held in the library. The specimens selected for display were 
chiefly incunabula, or works printed in the infancy of the art, early 
printers* marks and early collection of American colonial laws, es- 
pecially of Maryland. The exhibit was highly commended, and the 
resources of the library in this way brought to the notice of some 
of the foremost historians, bibliographers and librarians of the 
country. 

It was estimated at the last meeting of the Committee that, owing 
to a vacancy of two months in the office of librarian, an appropria- 
tion of $1,200 from the Convention would enable us to meet the 
expenses of this coming year. We submit, therefore, the following 
resolution : 

Resolved, That the sum of $1,200 be appropriated for the mainte- 
nance of the Diocesan Libraries for the ensuing year, $900 of this 
amount to be paid from the income of the Keerl Fund and $300 
from the Convention Fund. J. G. Sadtlicr,

The accounts of the Treasurer of the Episcopal Library for the 
year ended April 30th, 1906, have been examined and vouchers ex- 
hibited for all disbursements, excepting the sum of $53.52, the 
amount which has been advanced to Mr. Coe, the late Librarian, 
for small expenses. Owing to the death of Mr. Coe, the Treasurer 
was unable to obtain vouchers for the minor expenses covered by 
this sum.

114 Diocesan Convention of Maryland. [1906 

REPORT OF COMMITTTEE ON DONATIONS AND 
BEQUESTS. 

(Journal, p. 15.) 

To the Convention of the Protestant Episcopal Church of the Diocese 
of Maryland: 

The Committee on Donations respectfully report that the bequest 
of $5,000 made by the late W. Graham Bowdoin to the Convention 
for the benefit of the Superannuated and Disabled Clergy Fund has 
recently been paid, the sanction of the Legislature to the said be- 
quest having previously been obtained. 

The Committee was recently informed by Mr. Albert C. Ritchie, 
counsel for the executrix, of the devise to the Convention by the 
late Mrs. Margaret A. Snyder of the lot and improvements situated 
on the east side of Washington Place, Baltimore City, and known as 
607 N. Charles Street, the devise being for the benefit of the Fund 
for Superannuated and Disabled Clergy. 

On being notified of this devise, the Committee on Donations 
adopted the following resolution, and also requested the Chairman 
to arrange with Mr. Ritchie the practical details in connection with 
the transfer of the property. 

Resolved, by the Committee on Donations of the Convention of 
the Protestant Episcopal Church in the Diocese of Maryland, That 
the devise made by the late Mrs. Margaret A. Snyder of the prop- 
erty known as 607 N. Charles Street to the Convention for the 
benefit of the Fund for Superannuated and Disabled Clergy be, 
and the same is, hereby gratefully accepted in accordance with the 
terms expressed in the will of the testatrix. 

No deed is required, as the title passes under the will. The prop- 
erty is appraised at $11,000, and the collateral inheritance tax of 
2y2% amounts, therefore, to $275. The property is now rented at 
$800 per annum, and it was thought wise to recommend to this 
Convention that the rent of the property be applied to the payment 
of the collateral inheritance tax and to any other incidental ex- 
penses connected with the transfer of title, so that the property 
would become revenue-producing only after such necessary expenses 
had been paid. Mr. Albert C. Ritchie has kindly consented to act 
as agent for the Convention in the collection of rent and the pay- 
ment of these charges until the latter shall be disposed of. A reso- 
lution drawn for the purpose of carrying out these suggestions is 
submitted herewith for adoption by the Convention. 

Shortly after the will of Mrs. Snyder had been admitted to pro- 
bate there was filled a caveat on the part of the heirs-at-law and 
next of kin of her husband, the late Joseph R. Snyder. Pending 



1906] Donations and Bequests. 115 

the disposition of this case, it is thought necessarry that there should 
be a receiver appointed to collect the rent and otherwise care for 
the property. Mr. Ritchie, counsel for the executrix, therefore re- 
quests that this Convention shall unite with the executrix in a peti- 
tion to the Circuit Court of Baltimore City for the appointment of 
a receiver for the property pending the disposition of the case. A 
resolution is herewith submitted authorizing the Secretary of this 
Convention to unite with the executrix in the petition for the ap- 
pointnient of a receiver for the purposes named. 

The sanction of the Legislature was given to all the donations 
and bequests reported at the last Convention. Sanction to the devise 
of Mrs. Snyder cannot be obtained until the next session of the 
Legislature, in 1908, and therefore whatever disposition the Con- 
vention may decide to make of the real etsate, no sale of the prop- 
erty could apparently be made until after that sanction is obtained; 
for, until then, the title of the Convention is not absolute. 

Mr. Edward N. Rich, one of the surviving trustees under the will 
of the late Richard Clarence Hall, wrote to the Chairman of this 
Committee under date of May 5th, calling attention to a legacy of 
$5,000 contained in said will, the amount of which after the extinc- 
tion of certain lives in being is intended to pass to the Convention, 
to be held by it in trust for the benefit of St. John'j: Church, Hunt- 
ington. The surviving trustees inquire whether the Convention 
would be willing to accept the trust immediately, subject to the estate 
of the life tenants or annuitants. As this bequest is not to the Con- 
vention, but is made in trust ultimately for the benefit of a particular 
parish, the Committee deem that the questions concerning it should 
be referred to the Convention — namely, ffrst, whether it would be 
expedient to accept the trust at all ; and, second, if so, whether it 
would be expedient to accept it at this time and undertake the pay- 
ment of the annuities which, being charges upon the fund, no benefit 
will accrue to St. John's Parish until these annuities are extinguished 
by the deaths of the annuitants. 

In the judgment of the Committee this entire devise in trust is 
one that could be as well or better administered by some trustee 
other than the Convention, and the voluntary assumption of the 
fund at this time, subject to the payment of the annuities, would 
perhaps be beyond the corporate poWers of the Convention. 

Respectfully submitted,

116 Diocesan Convention of Maryland. [1906 

Resolved, That the Trustees of Church Charities be, and they arc, 
hereby requested and authorized to apply so much as may be needed 
of the rent derived from the dwelling of 607 N. Charles Street, 
devised to the Convention by the late Mrs. Margaret A. Snyder, 
to the payment of the collateral inheritance tax upon the said prop- 
erty and other expenses that may be incident to the transfer of the 
property. 

Resolved, That the Convention of the Protestant Episcopal Church 
of the Diocese of Maryland agrees to join with the executrix of the 
late Mrs. Margaret A. Snyder in the petition to the Circuit Court of 
Baltimore City for the appointment of a receiver for the real estate 
belonging to the estate of the said Mrs. Margaret A. Snyder for 
the purpose of collecting the rents and otherwise to administer the 
property pending the disposition of the caveat that has been filed 
against the said will, and hereby designates A. deR. Sappington as 
solicitor to represent the Convention in the proceedings in the Cir- 
cuit Court of Baltimore City. 



ELEVENTH ANNUAL REPORT OF THE TRUSTEES OF 
WARFIELD COLLEGE 

(Journal, p. 10.) 

The Trustees of Warfield College regret exceedingly to report that 
this Diocesan institution has been closed during the past year owing 
to the inability of the Trustees to secure a competent headmaster 
to conduct the school. Several meetings have been held and the in- 
terests of the school thoroughly considered. Your Trustees are 
not without hope that this institution may yet be revived, under 
good auspices, and continue the good work it accomplished in the 
early years of its history. Toward this end thought and energy will 
be directed, and even now the future begins to brighten with hope- 
ful prospects. 

The goodly sum of $1,331.08 has accumulated in our treasury, 
which will be sufficient to put the buildings in thorough repair when- 
soever the school may be reopened. 

Respectfully submitted, on behalf of the Trustees, 

Arthur Chilton Powell.

REPORT OF THE TRUSTEES OF HANNAH MORE 
ACADEMY. 

{Journal, p. 10.) 

During the present school year there has been an enrollment of 
ninety-nine pupils, with an average attendance of eighty-five. The 
school, therefore, has been much crowded, and twelve or more ap- 
plications for admission have been declined for want of space. 



1906] Hannah Mare Academy. 11 9 

The pupils represent nineteen Dioceses. Maryland very properly 
has sent thirty-seven, a larger number than any other Diocese. Two 
pupils have been baptized and nine have been confirmed during the 
current year; and there are now fifty-six pupils who are communi- 
cants. 

The health of the Academy has been remarkably good. The 
staff of teachers has remained unchanged through the session, with 
but one exception, the teacher of French and German having re- 
signed in order to accept a much larger salary from the school au- 
thorities of Baltimore City. The work of the school has gone on 
quietly and thoroughly without interruption, accident or unpleasant 
incident. 

Considerable additions have been made to the school work by the 
purchase of reference books and books of standard literature. There 
is, however, a great need of a laboratory and gymnasium. 

The Trustees have appointed a Special Committee to endeavor to 
secure a donation at this session of the Convention of the amount 
needed by the Trustees for improvements at the Academy, which 
are imperatively needed, and the Trustees earnestly ask that the 
Convention will give a favorable consideration to the request of this 
Committee. Edward N. Rich,

120 Diocesan Convention of Maryland. [1906 

REPORT OF TRUSTEES OF CERTAIN PROPERTY FOR 
ST. MARY'S CHURCH, HAMPDEN. 

{Journal, p. 9.) 

The Committee appointed by the Diocesan Convention of 1905 to 
manage the gift of the late Robert Poole to the Convention for the 
benefit of St. Mary's Church, Hampden, Baltimore City, Md., re- 
ports as follows : 

An investment in ground rents of $3,272 72 

An investment in mortgage of 3,000 00 

In Provident Savings Bank, May 28, 1906 1,220 94 

In Baltimore Trust and Guarantee Co., May 28, 
1906 145 15 

$7,638 81 
To investments and money in hand, as per Re- 
port to Convention of 1905 6,696 28 

Increase $ 942 53 



This increase has come from interest on deposits in Savings Bank 
and sale of lots and graves. The Committee, subject to the ap- 
proval of the Convention, has paid for the use of St. Mary's Church 
$300 of surplus income, and suggests that if this action is approved 
they will from time to time pay such surplus income as they may 
deem available to the Vestry of St. Mary's Church. 

Edw. Guest Gibson, 

For the Committee.

THE CHURCH HOME AND INFIRMARY. 

NORTH BROADWAY, BALTIMORE. 

This institution of the Church has been doing its beneficent and 
charitable work for more than forty-five years. Recently it has been 
enlarged to nearly double its former capacity. It has two distinct 
characters and lines of work, that of a 

CHURCH HOSPITAL, 

where those requiring surgical or medical attendance can, at rea- 
sonable ■ rates, obtain comfortable rooms, careful nursing, and the 
service of any physician whom they may engage; and it is also 

A HOME FOR THE AGED AND INVALID, 

where they may enjoy the comforts and the privileges of the Church. 
There are daily services in the Chapel, and in the Home there is a 
Resident Physician. The Church Home is supported in the follow- 
ing way : 

1. Partly by Churches in Baltimore, who engage to contribute a 
certain sum for the year, and who have the right to place a patient 
in the wards for every $200 annually contributed. In this way some 
Baltimore Churches keep one, or two, or five, or even ten, benefici- 
aries in the Home. 

2. Partly by Endowment and Income from Invested Funds, and 

3. Partly by Receipts from Pay Patients. 
The Bishop is Visitor of the Church Home. 

The Charges in the Wards are $4 a week, or $200 a year. Single 
rooms, according to situation, etc., are higher. 

Any Church or Congregation may make use of the opportunity 
thus afforded to provide for the care of the sick, for a longer or 
shorter time. 

The Church Home opens its doors freely to the Clergy of Mary- 
land who may need its care. Bishop Lay was nursed here in his last 
illness in 1885. Since then one Priest of the Diocese of Easton 
and four of the Diocese of Maryland have been cared for in their 
last illness. 

Clergymen, Churches and individuals may aid in this good work: 

1. By making the existence and advantages of the Church Home 
known, so that those who may have come to the city for surgical 
care, etc., may avail themselves of the advantages it offers. 

2. By sending the sick and the aged, and providing for their sup- 
port. 

3. By an occasional offering in Church, or private donation. 

4. By engaging to support a Free Bed, at a cost of $200 a year, 
with privilege of nominating the patient. 

5. By testamentary bequests to "The Church Home and Infirmary 
of the City of Baltimore." 

The Convention of the Diocese of Easton has requested an Annual 
Offering for this institution from every Congregation in the Diocese. 

Will not some of the Congregations in Maryland do this without 
request of the Convention?
