22 Journal of Proceedings. 

Smith and J. Cameron Buxton, both being under the chairmanship of 
the Bishop, and having co-operated one with the other, and having 
secured mutuality of action between the two Convocations — beg leave to 
submit a common report to this Convocation. 

They have to report that as the result of their several meetings and 
conferences, the following action was taken by the two Convocations 
represented by them. It was 

Resolved, 1. That it is desirable to effect a missionary organization 
of the men of the Diocese, with a local branch in each parish and mis- 
sion. 

2. That a lay "Secretary and Registrar" should be appointed for each 
Convocation to secure the co-operation of the men of the Convocation. 
He shall make an annual missionary enrollment of all the male mem- 
bers of the church within his Convocation of the age of sixteen years 
and upwards, who shall annually contribute the sum of fifty cents each 
to the missionary work of the Convocation. 

3. That in each parish and mission, with the consent of the minister 
thereof, one or more persons be appointed as a Missionary Committee 
of such parish or mission to represent the cause of missions. Such 
Committee shall endeavor to secure an annual contribution (by way 
of an enrollment fee) from each male member of the congregation of 
the age of sixteen years and upwards, and shall send the names ob- 
tained to the Registrar and the money to the Treasurer of the Convo- 
cation. 

4. That each clergyman be requested to call an annual meeting of 
each congregation under his charge for the appointment of local Com- 
mittees and for carrying on the scheme proposed, and that the Arch- 
deacon and Registrar of the Convocation be invited to attend such 
annual meeting and to co-operate in organizing and carrying on the 
work. 

5. That the travelling expenses of the lay Secretary and Registrar 
while engaged in this work be paid by the Treasurer of this Convention. 

The above scheme having been devised and adopted by the two Con- 
vocations interested, the Bishop was requested to appoint the person 
in each Convocation to be Lay Secretary and Missionary Registrar. He 
thereupon appointed for the Convocation of Charlotte Mr. J. Cameron 
Buxton, and for the Convocation of Raleigh Mr. Henry M. London. 

Your Committee report further that the above plan has been put in 
operation to a limited extent and the Convention will probably hear 
in the reports of the Archdeacons of Charlotte and Raleigh to what 
extent it promises to effect the purposes intended. 

Respectfully submitted. Jos. Blount Cheshire,

For Convocation of Charlotte.

The Bishop read the following 

EEPOET OF THE TRUSTEES OF ST. MARY^S SCHOOL. 

In compliance with requirements of their charter of incorporation, the 
undersigned, President of the Trustees of St. Mary's School, Raleigh, 
in the aJbsence of any specific provision by the Board, submits on behalf 
of the said Trustees the following report for the year ending May 1st, 
1906. The report of the Treasurer of the corporation is as follows: 

Dr. 

Balance on hand May 1st, 1905 $390.82 

Collected on principal of notes 460.00 

Collected on interest of notes 34.36 

Treasurer Diocese X. C, Mary Ruffin Smith Fund. . 2,500.00 

Rector of St. Mary's, for interest on debt 600.00 

Legacy of Miss Eleanor Clement 5,112.50 

$9,097.68 

Cb. 

Paid on principal of debt $8,000.00 

Paid on interest of debt '. 882.48 

Travelling expenses of President 30.35 

Telegrams 1.81 

Stationery and postage 5.00 

Advertising, etc., for plans 10.50 

Salary of Secretary and Treasurer 100.00 

Balance May 1st, 1906 67.54 

$9,097.68 

The payment on the mortgage noted above reduced the balance due 
for the purchase of the property to the sum of $5,000. The Executive 
Committee thereupon made an earnest effort to raise this balance and 
to free the property from debt. Cash donations have been received to 
the amount of $3,490, and subscriptions as yet uncollected to the amount 
of $575. The amount necessary to supplement the sum raised was 
taken from the school funds, and on the 27th day of March last a check 
for $5,007.50 was paid to the receivers under the mortgage and the last 
note in their hands was taken up and cancelled. It will be observed, 
however, that there is due the funds of the school in this transaction 
the sum of $1,517.50; and even when the above-mentioned subscriptions 
of $575 shall have been collected and paid over, there will remain nearly 
one thousand dollars due the school funds which ought to be returned, 
as it is urgently needed for necessary repairs and improvements in the 
school. 

It should also be mentioned that the mortgage has not been can- 
celled. One of the mortgage notes for $5,000 is held by the President 
of the Board of Trustees in trust to secure the principal of the fund 
given for the establishment of the "David R. Murchison Scholarship." 



24 Journal of Proceedings. 

The report of the Rector of the School makes a most satisfactory- 
financial exhibit, all expenses having been fully met, and a balance 
remaining on the right side. 

During the past year the School has enjoyed the loyal and generous 
support of the Dioceses associated in its maintenance. There was a 
total enrollment of 215, of whom 136 were boarders. The health of the 
pupils has been exceptionally good. All the teachers and officers of the 
School have been faithful and exemplary in the performance of their 
duties. Since the close of the Rector's report the School has lost one 
of its most devoted friends and loyal servants in the death, May 29th, 
of IMiss Anne Saunders, daughter of a former eminent presbyter of this 
Diocese, at one time head of the "Episcopal School," which preceded 
St. Mary's in the occupancy of the present school buildings; herself a 
noble woman, widely known and honored. 

It is proposed during the present summer vacation to install a steam 
laundry adequate to the necessities of the School family. 

The "Eliza Battle PiTTMAk Memorial" Auditorium is in process of 
erection with funds left by the late Mrs. Mary Eliza Pittman, of Tar- 
boro, but devoted to this special purpose by Mr. Frank B. Dancy. The 
contractor is to finish the building by next November. 

As President of the Board of Trustees, and expressing, I believe, the 
feelings of the Board, I would impress upon the Convention the chief 
and pressing needs of the School at this time: 

1. We need a new building to afford a better and more commodious 
dining-room, with kitchens and serving rooms fitted with the best mod- 
ern appliances. This is the first necessity. Incidentally and secondarily, 
such a building could also be made to provide additional dormitories 
and other needed accommodations. 

2. We should have an endowment of not less than one hundred thou- 
sand dollars to give stability and scope to our work. We should be 
able to raise the standard of scholarship and of requirements, and to 
maintain our departments in a high state of efficiency and command 
and retain the services of able and experienced teachers, without refer- 
ence to the pecuniary profit or loss. Only thus can we maintain an 
educational institution of a high grade; only thus can we keep St. 
Mary's School in a position to command success; and these things can 
be done only by means of an ample endowment. One hundred thousand 
dollars would be a fair beginning towards such an endowment. 

3. We are giving now, upon established scholarships, the funds for 
which have all gone into the property and yield us not one cent of in- 
come, not less than twenty-five hundred dollars annually in free tuition 
and board. Assuming that we could collect all our bills, this is equiva- 
lent to paying a rent of $2,500 a year for the property. I speak my 
own judgment in saying that we shovild not further add to this burden, 
but from this date should invest all money given for scholarships, and 
only bind ourselves to the extent of the income to be received. 

4. The time has come when we should appeal to our men and women 



Diocese of North Carolina, 1906. 25 

of wealth to come forward with their large gifts. They have joined the 
many in giving moderately, and the first stage in our journey has been 
accomplished. The property has been bought and paid for. The poor 
widow has cast in her mite. Have ^ye not rich men and women who 
will now count it a privilege to cast in their great gifts into the treasury 
of God? 

We, your appointed Trustees, hold this property in trust for you. 
It is not ours to exploit after tne manner of promoters and financiers. 
If it is to be developed and carried onward to its due development and 
usefulness, you must provide us the means. 

Respectfully submitted. Jos. Blouxt Cheshire, 

President of the Board of Trustees. 

On motion of the Rev. Echvard L. Ogilby, the report was 
referred to a Committee which the Bishop appointed, as fol- 
lows : The Rev. R. B. Owens, tlie Rev. Dr. W. H. Meade,

irregularities, they find the following persons duly elected, viz.: From 
St. Mark's, Bristow, Mr. C. W. McCoy; from St. Timothy's, Wilson, 
Messrs. J. C. Hales, E. G. Rawlings and T. C. Davis; from St. Thomas', 
Eeidsville, Messrs, Robert Hairston, John Oliver and Robert Mobley; 
from Epiphany, Leaksville, Messrs. John J. Robertson, Oliver Cox and

The resolution appended to the report was, on motion, 
adopted and the names of the delegates so admitted were

The Rev. S. R. Guignard presented the following report 
of a Committee appointed at the last Convention : 

The committee appointed at the last Convention to consider the expe- 
diency of making the "Messenger of Hope" a weekly paper and the 
organ of the Church in the whole State, respectfully report that, in

pursuance of the purpose of the resolution, they promptly sent com- 
munications to the secretaries of the Diocese of East Carolina and the 
District of Asheville, and received in due time a reply from East Caro- 
lina stating that the matter had been brought before their council, with 
the result that it was considered not advisable to have as the official 
organ of the Diocese a paper published without her bounds; while from 
the latter we received only a letter from the Rev. Francis Willis, Jr., 
saying he had been appointed on a committee of conference from his 
district, and asking for information, which was given, but with no fur- 
ther reply. 

Therefore, in view of a lack of co-operation on the part of the other 
Dioceses, we must report that the proposition for a State weekly 
Church paper is inexpedient; and further, in the absence of a man with 
both money and time to devote to a Church paper, we deem it also 
inexpedient to attempt to publish the Messenger of Hope weekly. 

The committee offer the following resolution: 

Resolved, That the Convocations of Raleigh and Charlotte be requested 
to appoint each an assistant editor of the Messenger of Hope, whose 
duty it shall be to gather and send to the managing editor items of 
local interest in the Church, and that the Bishop be asked to make the 
paper his official organ by publishing in it not only his appointments, 
but also, from time to time, a summary of his official acts. 

The resolntion appended to the report was, on motion, 
adopted. 

The Eev. Mr. Gnignard also presented a petition from the 
parish of St. Mary's, High Point, to be admitted into unio'n 
with the Convention of the Diocese. The petition was, on 
his motion, referred to the Committee on ISTew Parishes. 

The Key. A. B. Hunter presented the foUoimng report of 
the Principal of St. Angiistine's School, and on his motion 
it was referred to the Committee on the State of the Church : 

During the year there have been 346 pupils under instruction. There 
were five graduates from the collegiate department, seven from the nor- 
mal, three from the training school for nurses, one from the carpentry 
and thirteen from the cooking course. The organization of the Ameri- 
can Church Institute for Negroes gives promise of a brighter future. 
The corner-stone of the new St. Agnes Hospital was laid on May 29th 
by Bishop Cheshire. Mr. George C. Thomas has deposited with the 
Board of Missions the sum of $25,000, the income of which is to be 
divided between St. Augustine's and St. Paul's Schools. 

Respectfully submitted. A. B. Hunter, 

Principal.

The Rev. E. A. Osborne presented the following 

EEPOET OF THE COMZMITTEE 0:^^ CA^TOIS'S. 

The Committee on Canons respectfully submit the following resolu- 
tions : 

Resolved 1. That Chapter III, Canon I, line 18, be amended by in- 
serting after the space assigned for the names of vestrymen the follow- 
ing words : "That we have the ability, and it is our purpose, to employ 
and support a regular minister. It is also our purpose to provide and 
maintain a suitable house of worship, and to bear our proportion of the 
expenses of the Church in this Diocese." 

2. That the same canon be amended by the addition of a fifth para- 
graph, to read as follows: "Two or more small contiguous congrega- 
tions may combine to form one self-supporting parish under the fore- 
going provisions." 

3. That Article IX, section 4, be amended by inserting after the word 
represented, in the first line, the words "by a lay delegate." 

4. That the same section be amended by inserting after the words 
two successive years, in the second line, the words: or failing during 
such period to support a minister, or to employ a minister for at least 
one Sunday service a month during such period. 

E. A. OSBORKE, 

Chairman. 

The first two resolutions were, on motion, adopted, and 
the third and fonrth by permission of the Convention, with- 
drawn. 

In behalf of the Mecklenburg District Conference of the 
Convocation of Charlotte, the Eev. Harris Mallinckrodt pre- 
sented the following resolutions which, on motion of the 
Eev. H. T. Cocke, were referred to the Committee on Fi- 
nance : 

Resolved, That in assessing the Episcopal and Contingent Fund upon 
the parishes and missions of the Diocese for the ensuing year, the 
Finance Committee adopt as a basis the schedule of apportionments 
made by Bishop Cheshire for the cause of General Missions. 

Resolved, That in other years following, the Finance Committee be 
requested to work out assessments for the Episcopal and Contingent 
Fund after the same plan of calculation employed by the Bishop in 
making his apportionments for General Missions, so that the apportion- 
ment of these two funds will bear to each other the same ratio in every 
parish and mission. 

The Rev. Francis M. Osborne presented the following re- 
port: 



28 Journal of Proceedings. 

The Committee on Church Work at the University of North Carolina, 
appointed by the Convention of 1905, respectfully report that they have 
had three meetings — one at Chapel Hill, another at Greensboro, and the 
third this morning to adopt this report. 

At the first meeting the Rector and Vestry of the Chapel of the Cross 
were present by invitation, and expressed themselves as fully in sym- 
pathy with the desire of the Convention to extend the influence of the 
Church among the University students, and especially among those who 
were members of the Church, 

At the first meeting no practical work was undertaken, as the Com- 
mittee wished to obtain the views and co-operation of the three Bishops 
in North Carolina, and especially of our own Bishop. 

At the second meeting, held at Greensboro in October, 1905, during 
the session of the Convocation of Charlotte, the Bishop of North Caro- 
lina was present and the Rev. F. M. Osborne ( chairman ) , the Rev. 
Alfred R. Berkeley and Mr, James C. MacRae, of the Committee. 

After discussion and consideration, the Bishop gave his ready con- 
sent to an appeal by the Committee to the Churchmen of the Diocese for 
aid in this work, and the same permission was given by the Bishops of 
East Carolina and of Asheville. 

A report was made by ]\Ir. MacRae, by which it appears that, at that 
time, there were eighty students at the University either members of the 
Church or belonging to Church families, and that the number was nearly 
equally divided between the two Dioceses, with several from other 
States and the District of Asheville. 

During the year the Committee have endeavored to present the matter 
to those especially interested in these students, and in response a num- 
ber of pledges have been made for annual subscriptions, and cash sub- 
scriptions to the amount of $94.25 have been paid in, and the Vestry 
of the Chapel of the Cross have increased the amount pledged by them 
to the support of the Rector (in addition to the use of the rectory) 
from $400 to $500 per annum, beginning at Easter, 1906. 

The Committee have in hand written subscriptions to the amount of 
$154, payable as follows: In 1907, $41; in 1908, $41; in 1909, $31; 
in 1910, $31; in 1911, $10. 

The Committee therefore offer the following resolutions: 

Resolved 1. That the Convention continue its effort to solicit the 
support and sympathy of the Church people of North Carolina in the 
Church work at the University, under the direction of the Rector of the 
Chapel of the Cross, Chapel Hill. 

2. That the Bishop appoint a permanent Treasurer of the Fund for 
the support of the Church work at the University of North Carolina; 
this Treasurer being empowered to collect from congregations and indi- 
viduals money for the aforesaid Fund, and to disburse the same under 
the direction of the Bishop of North Carolina. 

3. That this Convention recommends that every congregation in this 



Diocese of North Carolina, 1906. 29 

Diocese take a collection for the said Fund on the first Sunday, or some 
other Sunday, in September each year. 

4. That the parents of Episcopalian students at the University and 
other individuals be urged to make an annual contribution to the 
Church work at the University, either through the Treasurer of this 
Fund or through the Treasurer of the Chapel of the Cross. 

5. That all money now in the hands of the Committee making this 
report be paid at once to the Rector of the Chapel of the Cross. 

6. That each year the Treasurer of the aforementioned Fund, under 
the direction of the Bishop of the Diocese of Xorth Carolina, pay the 
money he has in hand, up to the amount of $500 annually, to the Rec- 
tor at Chapel Hill. 

7. That a Committee be appointed to assist the permanent Treasurer 
in these matters, and to secure the further co-operation of the Diocese 
of East Carolina and the District of Asheville. 

Francis M. Osborne, Chairman. 

The resolutions offered bv the Committee were, on mo- 
tion, adopted, and in accordance therewith the Bishop ap- 
pointed the Kev. Francis M. Osborne permanent Treasurer, 
and the Kev. A. R. Berkeley, Mr. J. C. MacRae, Mr. Bur- 
ton Craige and Charles E. Johnson, Jr., a Committee to 
assist the permanent Treasurer in his work. 

The Rev. Geo. M. Tolson, Archdeacon of the Convocation 
of Raleigh, and the Rev. E. A. Osborne, Archdeacon of the 
Convocation of Charlotte, presented their reports, which 
were, on motion, referred to the Committee on the State of 
the Church. (See Appendix B.) 

The Convention then adjourned to meet at 9 :30 o'clock on 
Thursday morning. 



After Evening Prayer at 8 :30 o'clock, addresses upon 
Sunday School work Avere made by the Rev. Harris Mallinck- 
rodt, Mr. S. S. Xash and the Rev. Sidnev S. Bost. 



At a preliminary service on Tuesday evening, a sermon 
on the subject of Missions was delivered by the Rev. R. W. 
Barnwell, of Petersburg, Virginia, and an offering was re- 
ceived, as on all succeeding evenings during the session of the 
Convention, for Diocesan Missions.

SECOIS^D DAY. 

Church of the Holy I^n^xoceis^ts, Henderson, 

Thursday, June 14, 1906. 

The Convention met pursuant to adjournment. 

Morning Prayer was said by tlie Eev. Messrs. E. A. Os- 
borne and S. R. Guignard. 

The Bishop having taken the chair, the minutes of yester- 
day were read and approved. 

The Bishop then read his Annual Address. (See Appen- 
dix A.) 

On motion of the Bev. Dr. Marshall, so much of the ad- 
dress as related to the Mary Buffin Smith Fund was referred 
to the Committee on Finance. 

On motion of Mr. B. H. Battle, the statistics were referred 
to the Committee on the State of the Church. 

So much as related to the need and sufferings of the people 
of San Francisco were, on motion of the Bev. Dr. Pittenger, 
referred to a Committee which the Bishop appointed, as fol- 
lows: The Bev. Dr. Pittenger, the Bev. A. B. Berkeley, 
Messrs. Chas. E. Johnson, W. H. S. Burgwyn and John 
Wilkes. 

The portions in regard to the Men's Thanlvoffering of 1907 
were, on motion, referred to a Committee as thus appointed : 
The Bev. Messrs. H. Mallinckrodt and Milton A. Barber, 
and Messrs. Heriot Clarkson, W. A. Erwin and B. H. Lewis, 
M.D. 

Oil motion of Mr. Wm. L. London, the portion relating to 
St. ]\Iary's School was referred to the Conmaittee on the 
Beport of the Trustees, who then presented their report, as 
follows : 

The special committee to whom was referred the report of the Trus- 
tees of St. Mary's School respectfully report that they have carefully 
examined the report, and recoimnend that it be approved by the Con- 
vention and spread upon its records. This report is most gratifying, as 
showing the great work that our beloved school is carrying on go sue-

cessfiilly and the extent to whieh we are indebted to the broad-minded 
and conscientious trustees. 

We recommend that the Convention take steps to impress upon the 
entire Church the importance of the work, and endeavor to carry out all 
the suggestions made by the Chairman of the Trustees, all of which 
appear to us very wise and proper. 

In the limited time at our disposal we find it impossible to discrimi- 
nate between the various suggestions of the report. The raising of the 
school standard is of the utmost importance. New buildings are impera- 
tively called for. 

All that we can say is that we should be most thankful for the work 
now being done, and that the Convention should take steps at once to 
raise the funds necessary to equip the School as it should be equipped. 
The School is unquestionably in good hands, and it should be a pleasure 
to us to rally to its support. 

We call especial attention to Recommendation 3 of the report, which 
states that in accepting legacies and trust funds the School has assumed 
obligations to the amount of $2,500 a year forever. Too much import- 
ance cannot be given to this statement. As $2,500 is a fair net return 
on $50,000, this means that the school debt is just where we started nine 
years ago, that we are mortgaged to the public equally as heavily as 
we were mortgaged to the Cameron estate. We think that this should 
be borne in mind, that great care should be used in increasing this 
insidious form of debt, and that every legacy and donation should be 
scanned upon business principles and not accepted as a matter of senti- 
ment unless it is beyond question a good business proposition. 

We do not mean to criticize. Necessity knows no law. The mortgage 
had to be paid and $40,000 improvements had to be made. We know 
that the trustees have done all that was possible. But from now on it 
seems absolutely necessary to adopt the Bishop's idea that no trust 
should be accepted that really amounts to a larger burden than the 
income from the gift. And the condition caused by the attempts to pay 
the mortgage would indicate that further mortgages had better be 
avoided. 

We are glad to note the bequest of Mrs. M. E. Pittman for the Eliza 
Battle Pittman Memorial Auditorium; and we would suggest to the 
clergy that from time to time, as they may have opportunity, they 
impress upon their people the importance of aiding our own Church 
institutions, not only by gifts outright, but also in their wills. 

It is needless to say that no more suitable memorial could be made 
for any person. 

Respectfully submitted. R. B. Owexs, 

Chairiyian. 

The Rev. Messrs. Mc^eely DiiBose and Benjamin S. 
Bronson, and Mr. Y. S. Sprnill, addressed the Convention on 
the same subject.

and resolutions, which, on his motion, were referred to a 
special Committee of one clergyman and three laymen, to be 
appointed by the Bishop : 

Whereas, the present financial prosperity of the country has increased 
the cost of living, and yet has failed to produce a corresponding general 
increase in the salaries paid the ministers of the Church in this Dio- 
cese; and 

Whereas, the Bishop's address has called attention to this condition 
of affairs, and has pointed out the consequent hardship which has 
thereby been placed upon the clergy; therefore, be it 

Resolved 1. That this Convention is of the opinion that the salaries 
of the clergy should be increased in proportion to the general cost of 
living and support. 

2. That this Convention is of the opinion that the stipends of all mis- 
sionary clergymen of the Diocese should be increased at least 30 per 
cent. 

3. That a Committee of one clergyman and two laymen be appointed 
by the Bishop to devise and execute means for accomplishing this pur- 
pose. 

The Bishop appointed as members of the Committee called 
for by the second resolution, the Rev. Dr. Pittenger, Dr. 
R. H. Lewis, and Mr. D. Y. Cooper. 

On motion of Mr. R. H. Battle, the following resolution 
was referred to the Committee on Finance : 

Resolved, That all arrears charged against mission stations reported

EEPOET OF THE BOAED OF MAXAGEES OF THE THOMPSON" 
OEPHAXAGE AXD TEAINII^G INSTITUTIOX. 

The Board of Managers respectfully submits the following for the 
last fiscal year: 

The report of the Superintendent and the report of the Trustee of 
the Permanent Fund to the Board of Managers are herein incorporated 
as part of this report. This fund in 1905 amounted to $7,454.38, and 



Diocese of North Carolirm, 1906. 35 

it was increased this year to $1,052,08, a fraction over 14 per cent, 
indicating a good, healthy growth. The Board would stress the im- 
portance of this fund and commend it to the benefactions of the benefi- 
cent. The report of the Superintendent has been published in the Mes- 
senger of Hope and has been circulated among the members of the Con- 
vention, showing, to our great gratification, the prosperous condition 
of your institution, demonstrating the deep-seated and abounding in- 
terest of the people in these children of the Kingdom, the wheat of 
Christ's own planting. The new matron is a superior woman, who said 
to the writer: '"I try to be a mother to all the children, but it is hard 
to do, there are so many of them.'' The remark made me think of 

"The old lady that lived in a shoe, 
She had so many children she didn't know what to do; 
So she gave them some broth without any bread. 
Then gave them a whipping and sent them to bed." 

These familiar nursery rhymes do not apply, however, in full to her, 
as she, in charge of Thompson Hall, and Miss Capehart, in charge of 
Bronson Hall, certainly succeed in managing — '"doing" — them nicely. 
The children gathered around me fearlessly, affectionately and famil- 
iarly, evidencing the fine, correct family training received, and they 
talked with me openly and freely of their plays, pastimes, recreations, 
waywardness and punishments. The shadow of the raven's wing is 
over us all, and these inmates of the Orphanage are not exceptions and 
need and must have restraining influences. The naughty, the disobedi- 
ent, the wayward and reckless are usually reached by denial of their 
cherished wishes; for instance, prohibition of the pleasant walk, the 
playground, the swing or other amusement has often a most salutary 
effect. I quote the language of the matron: "The disobedient are pun- 
ished by denying them that which each most desires." 

One bright boy of — say eleven — told me he ran away — " 'way out in 
the country, ten miles," said he, and his eyes sparkled with the adven- 
ture, I turned to the matron and asked how she punished him on his 
return. "Oh," said she, "he was glad enough to get back," 

If the officers of this institution fail to uphold the rules and regula- 
tions, if they fail to command the respectful obedience of these children, 
if they fail to win their love and confidence, if they fail to train them 
in the right way, they will be held in the eyes of God and man respon- 
sible. Oh, what a fearful responsibility ! But they will not fail : of this 
I am assured. Our minds and hearts are gardens — weeds will grow in 
gardens, and unless we cut them out will injure and damage, probably 
destroy, the beautiful flowers. The sour gooseberry and crab-apple 
must be uprooted, that luscious fruit may be produced. 

The earnest endeavor of the Superintendent, matrons and teachers is 
to make the Orphanage grain into fine flour of wheat — a nursery of the 
Church — cheerful workers. How well they have succeeded is attested 
by their contributions, reminding you of, if not equalling "the widow's 



36 Journal of Proceedings. 

mite." How well they have succeeded is manifestly and convincingly 
attested by fourteen confirmations at the last visitation of the Bishop. 
No, they will not fail to convert the children committed to their care 
into Children of the Kingdom. 

Care of orphans is civilization in the highest; it is Jacob overtaking 
Esau. And we bid our Superintendent and his efficient co-helpers God- 
speed in this pure, excellent, unselfish work for the Master. "Deal 
courageously, and Jehovah shall be with the good." 

We confidently ask of the laymen of the Church the bread and butter 
to sustain them. W. A. Smith, 

For the Board of Managers.

REPORT OF THE REV. W\ J. SMITH, SUPERIXTENDEXT OF THE THOMPSON 
ORPHANAGE AND TRAINING INSTITUTION. 

To the Board of Managers — Greeting: 

It is again my pleasure to report to you that the Orphanage is in a 
healthy condition, both financially and physically. The doors of the 
institution were opened nineteen years ago by the Rev. E. A. Osborne, 
and eight years ago I became his successor. At no time in its history, 
I feel warranted in saying, has the institution, on the whole, been in a 
better condition than at present. Many additions have been made to 
the comfort and convenience of the buildings; the supply of food is 
more abundant and better prepared, and the children are apparently 
happy and contented. On the retirement of Mrs. Argyle as matron of 
Thompson Hall, on May 15th, Mrs. Morton, the housekeeper, took her 
place temporarily, while her own place as housekeeper was filled by her 
daughter, Miss Alice. Both were faithful in the discharge of their 
duties till September 1st, when they returned to their home in Vir- 
ginia. At that time Miss Anna L. Dade, of Beallsville, Md., former 
matron of the Church Orphanage at Frederick, Md., succeeded Mrs. 
Morton as matron and entered upon her duties with an energy and 
devotion which she has maintained ever since. On October 16th Miss 
Nannie E. Gregory, of Granville County, took charge of the kitchen 
and pantry at Thompson Hall and has proved to be a very efiicient

by the Thompson Orphanage Guild, of St. Peter's Parish, Charlotte. 
Miss Capehart, now a veteran in the work, still presides with satisfac- 
tion over Bronson Haft, while the school has been in the hands of Miss 
Bishop, our former teacher, and Miss Edwards, one of our old girls from 
Edgecombe County. They both have been faithful to their duties, and 
Miss Edwards has also acted as organist very acceptably, but has not 
felt competent to give general lessons in music, which it was hoped she 
might do. The Board of Managers at its last meeting emphasized tiie 
importance of training the children in music, and some provision ought 
to be made to meet this want. Miss Edmunds is still in charge of the 
sewing room and also assists Miss Dade in the care of the sick, when 
necessary. She is always ready and willing to do her part. Dr. Wright 
continues to look after the health of the children, and I am glad to 
say that the cases of sickness during the year have not been many nor 
of a serious nature. Mrs. Johnston, our agent for the Messenger of 
Hope, has been interrupted in her work by long spells of bad weather 
and her own personal indisposition, but still the receipts on account 
of the paper show a decided net gain over the disbursements. The 
paper is an indispensable agency of the work of the Orphanage, and it 
is earnestly hoped that our clergy w^ill do all they can to increase the 
circulation amongst their people. The small subscription of fifty cents 
a year will certainly not interfere with any other paper nor with any 
other work. Miss Early, our stenographer, left us in November and 
went to Norfolk to be with her sister, and her place has been filled 
very acceptably by Annie Jones, one of our girls who had been attending 
King's Business College for a few months. 

During the year we have received into the institution twenty children, 
sixteen of whom came from the Diocese of North Carolina, three from 
the Diocese of East Carolina, and one from the District of Asheville. 
Twenty-three have either been placed in suitable homes or returned to 
their friends or relations, and of this number eleven belonged to the 
Diocese of North Carolina, seven to East Carolina, three to the District 
of Asheville, and two were from Virginia. The present number in the 
institution is sixty-eight — thirty-seven being from North Carolina, fif- 
teen from East Carolina, fourteen from Asheville, and two from South- 
ern Virginia, grandchildren of the Eev. George B. Wetmore, for many 
years a faithful missionary in North Carolina. The Thompson Orphan- 
age Guild, of St. Peter's Parish, Charlotte, ever active in behalf of the 
Orphanage, has, during the past year, besides many other benefactions, 
installed in one of our bath-rooms in Thompson Hall three shower- 
bath arrangements, and has had Bronson Hall shut in beneath with 
brick-work. St. Agnes' Guild, of Christ Church, Raleigh, also ever 
active for the Orphanage, has placed a bath tub in Bronson Hall in 
memory of iMrs. ]Mary Gray Ryan, the first president of the Guild. A 
neat bedstead complete has been given to Thompson Hall in memory 
of Mrs. Elizabeth Palamountain, late of Tarboro, by her three daugh- 
ters. A set of carpenter tools has been given by the Juniors of the 



Diocese of North Carolina, 1906, 39 

Church of the Good Shepherd, Rocky Mount, and we hope some day to 
turn out some skilled mechanics. 

A strip of land adjoining the Orphanage property, said to contain 
one-eighth of an acre, has been donated by Mr. S. J. Torrence, of Char- 
lotte, and the deed has been turned over to the Trustees of the Diocese. 
The additions to the endowment fund will be noted in the report of the 
trustee of that fund. Two cows have been given — one by Mr. T. C. 
Davis, of Charlotte, and the other by the missions under the care of the 
Rev. A. R. Berkeley, of Mayodan. In justice to the farm, it ought to 
be stated that the hea\^ disbursements are due partly to the purchase 
of two new wagons and partly to the outlay in getting out three or four 
hundred yards of rock, which have not yet been disposed of. Some of 
our immediate wants are a new slate roof on the chapel and the re- 
laj-ing of the main sewer, each of which will cost about three hundred 
dollars. Then the kitchen in Thompson Hall needs a new cement floor 
and a larger range, for which another hundred dollars will be required. 
And, lastly, a crying need for the whole institution is a steam laundry, 
the cost of which has not been estimated. 

In concluding this report I wish to express my deep appreciation of 
the continued favors shown the Orphanage by the railroads and ex- 
press companies of the State, and also to thank the physicians and 
dentists of Charlotte for their professional services, freely and cheer- 
fully given. I wish also to thank the City Water Works and the 
Standard Ice and Fuel Company for a continuation of their highly 
valued favors. 

Hereto I append my statement as Treasurer for the past year.

40 Journal of Proceedings. 

The Keport was, on motion^ referred to a Committee which 
the Bishop appointed, as follows: The Rev. Messrs. J. L. 
Martin and J. E. Poindexter, and Messrs. D. Y. Cooper, 
V. E. Turner and J. G. M. Cordon. 

On motion of the Rev. Dr. Marshall, the Secretary was 
requested to send to the Rev. Walter J. Smith an expression 
of the aifectionate sympathy of the members of the Conven- 
tion in the illness which prevented his attendance, and also 
their thanks for his excellent report of the Orphanage^ 

On motion of the Rev. H. T. Cocke, the Secretary was re- 
quested to convey a message of sympathy to the Rev. H. Bald- 
win Dean in his recent bereavement and present illness. 

The Rev. Dr. Murdoch renewed the offer of the resolutions 
contained in a report of a Committee at the last Convention 
limiting the membership of the Convention to white people. 
(See Journal 1905, page 31.) 

The Rev. H. T. Cocke offered the following amendment, 
which was accepted by the mover of the resolutions: 

Resolved, That it is the sense of this Convention that the membership 
of the Convention be limited to white clergy and white delegates from 
congregations of white people, conferring on the colored Churchmen the 
greatest measure of self-government consistent with Catholic princi- 
ples and retaining them as an integral part of the Church in the Dio- 
cese. 

The hour of adjournment having arrived, Mr. H. A. Lon- 
don moved that the session be continued until 7 o'clock, but 
an amendment offered by Mr. Chas. M. Busbee prevailed, 
providing for immediate adjournment and making the mat- 
ter under discussion the order of the day at 10 o'clock 
Eriday morning. 



After Evening Prayer at 8:30 o'clock, addresses upon 
Diocesan Missions were made by Archdeacon Tolson, Mr. 
Henry M. London, the Rev. Alfred R. Berkeley and Mr. 
J. C. Buxton.

THIRD DAY. 

Church of the Holy Ixxocexts, Henderson, 

Friday, June 16, 1906. 

The Convention assembled at 9 :30 o'clock. 

:\rorning Prayer was said by the Rev. E. A. Osbome and 
the Rev. W. H. Meade, D.D. 

The Pi-esident having taken tlie chair, the minutes of yes- 
terday were read, corrected and approved: 

The Order of the day being the matter under consideration 
at the close of the session on Thursday afternoon, pending the 
discussion of the resolution limiting the membership of the 
Convention to white people, the Rev. Dr. Murdoch moved a 
postponement until next Convention in view of the fact that 
the Bishop had informed him that the Convocation of the 
Colored People desired at their next meeting at an early day 
to take this matter into consideration. 

The motion having been agreed to it was, on motion of Mr. 
Chas. M. Busbee, 



-7 



Resolved, That the matter be made a special order for 11 o'clock on 
the second day of the next session of the Convention.

urer of the University, amount to more than $158. 



42 Journal of Proceedings. 

The Eev. Dr. Murdoch presented the following 

EEPOET OF THE COMMITTEE OK" EIXAXCE. 

The Finance Committee, to whom was referred a resolution concern- 
ing the Mary Euffin Smith Fund, respectfully recommend its passage, 
amended as follows: 

Resolved, That the Treasurer of the Diocese transfer to the Perma- 
nent Episcopal Fund all money and securities on hand belonging to the 
Mary Euffin Smith Fund, and also all additional amounts received from 
that estate. 

They also recommend the passage of the following resolution in place 
of the one referred to them concerning remitting the arrears of Mis- 
sion Stations: 

Resolved, That the Finance Committee have power to compromise, 
settle and remit the present arrears of all Mission Stations at their 
discretion. 

They also recommend the passage of this resolution: 

Resolved, That the assessment for the current year be fixed at 12 per 
cent of the salaries promised, or, when none were promised, on those 
paid, and the amounts reported as Current Expenses, as indicated in 
the Journal of 1905. F. J. Murdoch, 

Chairman. 

The resolutions offered bj the Committee were, on motion, 
adopted. 

Mr. R. H. Battle moved a resolution that the Treasurer of 
the Convention be authorized to borrow, if necessary, on the 
security of the Episcopal Fund, for the payment of the an- 
nual salary of the Bishop ; but it was withdrawn after a dis- 
cussion calculated to impress the representatives of the con- 
gregations of the Diocese with the importance of greater 
promptness in the pa^mient of their dues. 

The Bishop took the chair. 

The members of the Woman's Auxiliary having come into 
the church, their Annual Report was read by the Rev. Mr. 
Mallinckrodt, on whose motion it was referred to the Com- 
mittee on the State of the Church. (See Appendix B.) 

At 12 o'clock the Bishop said the Litany and prayers for 
Missions. 

On motion of Mr. R. H. Battle, the thanks of the Conven- 
tion were tendered to the members of the Woman's Auxiliary 
for the excellent work of the past year. 



Diocese of North Carolina, 1906. 43 

The Eev. ]\Ir. Mallinckrodt presented the following report : 

The Coniniittee on Sunday School Work, appointed at the last Con- 
vention, respectfully report that, owing to the removal from the Diocese 
of its Chairman, the Rev. Mr. Dean, they are unable to make any 
report on details or any well-considered suggestions ; but, in view of the 
fact that in their opinion no branch of Church work is more important 
than that of the Sunday School, they suggest that the committee be 
continued till next Convention, or a new committee appointed. 

The Committee ask that the subject be made a special appointment 
for next Convention, so as to give opportunity for the discussion of 
some means of increasing the interest of the Church in this vital mat- 
ter—the improvement of our Sunday Schools. 

Harris Mallinckrodt, 

For the Committee. 

On motion, the Committee was continued and instructed 
to report at the next Convention. 

The Rev. Francis Joyner then presented the following 

EEPOET OP THE COMMITTEE O^ THE STATE OF THE CHUECH. 

Your Committee beg leave to report that, owing to the fact that many 
of the Parochial reports have not been sent to the Secretary, they are 
unable to give a full and detailed statement of the affairs of the Diocese. 

SIGNS OF PROGRESS. 

Your Committee are greatly pleased to find from the Bishop's address 
great activity on his part, and the amount of work which he has done 
sets a good example for all the laborers in the field. The increase of 
four in the Clergy list during the year, the organization of the Men's 
Missionary League, the building of new chapels and churches, the large 
increase in Missionary offerings from all sources, and the increase of 
8 per cent in confirmations mark a distinct spiritual advancement and 
great liberality on the part of the Church. 

ST. MARY'S SCHOOL. 

Your Committee feel thankful to Almighty God that our Diocesan 
School has had such a prosperous year and is now free from debt, and 
trust that the years which are to come will bring new energy and added 
income to carry on the great work for the Church. We recommend that 
this Diocese and the State unite in pushing this important work of 
educating young women, and hope that with the raising of the intel- 
lectual standard of the school, a thorough teaching of the Scriptures 
and the doctrines of the Church will never be lost sight of. Knowing 
that the school is in the hands of competent educators, we feel assured 
that it will succeed and prosper. Your Committee recommend that the 



44 Journal of Proceedings. 

Dioceses of North Carolina and South Carolina endow St. Mary's School 
with not less than $100,000 as quickly as possible, so that the school 
may keep abreast with the progress of the times. 

ARCHDEACOXS' REPORTS. 

The reports of three Archdeacons show a steady and prosperous 
Church growth in the three Convocations of the Diocese. 

In the Convocation of Raleigh, by the report of Archdeacon Tolson it 
is shown that during the past year the Missionary work in this Con- 
vocation has been most successful, and this Committee recommend that 
the Archdeacon should be freed from the care of a parish, as it is 
impossible for a Missionary who has charge of a number of mission 
stations to give his time and thought to parish work. He should be 
free to advance the work of the Church at new points and in new 
fields, as his Missionary work must necessarily be hindered and handi- 
capped by Parochial work. 

In the Convocation of Charlotte the Committee are glad to note 
advance along all lines, as is shown by the report of Archdeacon 
Osborne, the direct results of his commendable activity. Your Com- 
mittee urge the support of the Archdeacon in all his new enterprises 
looking to the advancement of the Church in his fields. 

COLORED WORK. 

The report of Archdeacon Pollard of work among the colored people 
is very gratifying. It shows the sum of $3,525 raised exclusively by 
the colored people — an increase of about 200 per cent in this respect. 
The Mission Schools — ten, exclusive of St. Augustine's — have enrolled 
974 pupils during the year, in which schools the Church's services are 
held daily for eight months of the year, and thus the Church and her 
teachings are brought to the knowledge of eight hundred families out- 
side of the Church. The Sunday schools show an enrollment of 1,162 
pupils. 

The laying of the corner-stone of St. Agnes' Hospital in Raleigh, on 
the morning of May 30th, 1906, marked an advance in the work of the 
Church among the colored people in this Diocese. 

HOSPITAL REPORTS. 

St. Peter's Hospital in Charlotte shows the care of more patients for 
the past year than any previous year. The institution is out of debt 
and has a balance on hand, after the payment of all expenses, of 
$144.08. 

The report of the President of the Board of Managers shows that a 
great work has been done. 

The report of the Good Samaritan Hospital, for colored people, shows, 
after the payment of all expenses, a balance of $57.52 on hand. The 
colored people have shown great appreciation of this work, and your 
Committee desire to commend the good efforts made by the Board of 
Managers of both institutions. 



Diocese of North Carolina, 1906. 45 

treasurer's report. 

It is gratifying to note the improvement in the contributions as 
reported by the Treasurer of the Diocese, and also to note the decrease 
in the amount in arrears April 30th, 1906, as compared with last report 
of unpaid assessments; but we still desire to impress upon the Clergy, 
the several Parishes and Missions of the Diocese the canon which 
requires the assessments to be paid quarterly, upon the dates named, 
and we urge that all assessments in arrears be paid as soon as possible! 

It is gratifying to the Committee to know that the stipends of all 
Missionaries have been paid in full. Our Missionaries are faithful, con- 
scientious and self-denying men, who labor uncomplainingly, while their 
stipends are much too small; and only those who have tried to live and 
provide for their families and supply themselves with the facilities for 
doing the work committed to them know what hardships they have to 
endure, and how they have to deny themselves under existing condi- 
tions, with the increased price of living and other necessary demands 
which are made upon them in this time of general prosperity in secular 
affairs. We earnestly recommend that not less than $800 per annum 
be provided and promptly paid to each Missionary in this Diocese. Out 
of this amount we must remember that the necessarv traveling ex- 
penses of these Missionaries must be paid, besides answering numerous 
calls which are from time to time made upon every worker in the 
Church. 

THOMPSOX ORPHANAGE. 

This institution continues to fill a most useful place in the work of 
the Church in the State. It has received and deserves the generous 
support and confidence of all charitable. Christian people. 

ST. AUGUSTINE'S SCHOOL. 

We commend the good work done by those in charge of St. Augus- 
tine's School, and note with appreciation and gratitude the recent gift 
toward an endowment placed at its command. 

AUXILIARIES. 

Your Committee gladly note the gratifying increase of $258.41 in the 
contributions of the Woman's Auxiliary over the past year. 

The report of the Babies' Branch shows a steady increase as to num- 
ber and contributions. 

Your Committee are very sorry to find that the Junior ±>ranch has 
decreased in membership and also in contributions, and hope the mem- 
bers will renew their activities and make an earnest effort to keep 
abreast with the other departments of the Auxiliary. 

We heartily commend the faithful efforts and splendid work of the 
officers of the different Auxiliaries. 

In view of the fact that the Sunday schools, by resolution of General 
Convention, are recognized as auxiliary to the Board of Missions, it is 
the sense of this Committee that a report should appear along with the 



46 Journal of Proceedings. 

report of other auxiliaries in the Journal of the Convention. There- 
fore we offer the following resolutions: 

1st. That it is advisable that a Sunday School Secretary be ap- 
pointed to collect and report to the Convention statistics of Sunday 
school membership and offerings, especially the Advent and Easter 
offerings for Missionary purposes, 

2d. That this resolution be referred to the Committee on Sunday 
School Work. Johx London, 

Chairman. 

The Eev. Francis M. OsboTne read a letter from the local 
assembly of the Brotherhood of St. Andrew at Memphis, 
Tennessee, inviting a large attendance at the meeting of the 
K'ational Convention in that city in October next. 

The Rev. J. L. Martin presented the following report of 
the Committee on the Report of the Managers of Thompson 
Orphanage : 

It is with great pleasure that the Committee on the Report of the 
Thompson Orphanage and Training Institution report that it is entirely 
satisfactory, and they wish to congratulate the Superintendent and 
Board of Managers upon the most admirable manner in which the 
institution has been conducted during their administration, and espe- 
cially during the past year. 

And we desire to bring before this Convention one clause of this 
report — i. e., the urgent need of a few of their wants, to-wit: "Some 
of our immediate wants are a new slate roof on the chapel, and the re- 
laying of the main sewer, each of which will cost about three hundred 
dollars." 

We therefore recommend and urge that this Convention raise three 
hundred dollars before its close; but, should the Convention fail to raise 
the three hundred dollars, then the Clergy bring the matter before 
their respective congregations with a determination to raise the neces- 
sary amount to supplement the amount, which may be raised by the 
Convention, within the next thirty days; and that the Diocese of East 
Carolina and the Missionary District of Asheville be requested to raise 
$300, making in all $600, which amount is necessary to be able to have 
these wants attended to, which are so necessary and important for both 
the comfort and health of the little ones whom God has put in our care. 

The Committee, in behalf of the Convention, wish to express their 
sincere regrets at the absence of the Rev. W. J. Smith from this Con- 
vention, and extend to him their greatest sympathy. 

Respectfully submitted. J. E, Poindexter,

D. Y. Cooper,

Diocese of North Carolina, 1906. 47 

Within a few minutes after the reading of this report, 
$300 was subscribed upon the floor of the Convention to^ 
Avards the cost of the required improvements. 

On motion of Mr. E. H. Battle, the following resolution 
was adopted: 

Resolved, That the thanks of the Convention are tendered to the Rec- 
tor and congregation of the Church of the Holy Innocents, and to the 
citizens of Henderson generally, for their generous hospitality in the 
entertainment of the members of the Convention and of the visitors in 
attendance on its sessions, as also to the railroad authorities for the 
allowance of special rates for the occasion, and to the telephone com- 
pany for the free use of their lines. 

On motion of Mr. S. S. A^ash, the next Annual Convention 
was appointed to meet in Calvary Church, Tarboro, on the 
15th day of May, 1907. 

The Bishop read a letter from the Bishop of Asheville in 
regard to the Xorth Carolina Children's Home Society, and, 
on motion, the matter was referred to a Committee consisting 
of the Rev. Messrs. E. A. Osborne and Mallinckrodt, and 
Mr. Ernest Field, with instructions to report to the next 
Convention. 

The Eev. Edward L. Ogilby presented a memorial praving 
for the reduction of the Parish of St. James, Iredell County, 
to the status of an organized Mission in union with the Con- 
vention; and on his motion it was referred to a special Com- 
mittee which the Bishop appointed, as follows: The Rev. 
E. L. Ogilby, the Rev. E. A. Osborne and Mr. John Wilkes 

On motion of Mr. Chas. M. Busbee, from the Committee 
on Finance, the arrears due from All Saints' Church, Con- 
cord, were remitted, and the assessment was reduced from 
fifty to forty dollars.

48 Journal of Proceedings. 

On motion of the Treasurer of the Convention^ he was 
authorized to pay the expenses of clergymen of the Diocese 
attending the Convention but not entitled tx) seats in the 
same. 

On motion of the Rev. Dr. Marshall, the Secretary was 
authorized to have printed 1,000 copies of the Journal of the 
Convention. 

The Secretary presented the following Report of the Di- 
ocesan Trustee of the General Theological Seminary : 

For the first time since I have had the honor of representing the 
Diocese as Trustee of the General Theological Seminary in New York, 
it was my pleasure and privilege to be present at the Commencement 
Exercises in 1905, and at the same time attend the annual meeting of 
the Board of Trustees. While there was no matter of great importance 
brought before the Trustees, yet I want to say that I was very favor- 
ably impressed with the exercises of the Commencement. The three 
essays of the graduating class showed clear thought, well expressed, 
and breathed a spirit of true Christian fellowship. 

The Alumni essay and also the Baccalaureate sermon were of a high 
order and full of practical suggestions. The present Dean, Dr. Rob- 
bins, impressed me as being a man of deep learning and thorough con- 
secration, with a genuine love for the Seminary and perfect loyalty to 
the Church. A late move on his part is intended to provide for lecture- 
ships which will bring the outside public into closer touch with the 
Seminary. x\t the annual meeting of the Board of Trustees during the 
Commencement of the present year, the Rev. C. C. Edmunds (Class of 
'80 ) , Rector of Grace Church, Newark, was elected "Glorvina Russell 
Hoffman," Professor of the Literature and Interpretation of the New 
Testament, to fill the vacancy caused by the resignation of Professor 
Beckwitli, and the Rev. C. N. Shepard, Adjunct Professor of the Litera- 
ture and Interpretation of the Old Testament, was made Professor of 
the Hebrew and Cognate Languages. 

Respectfully submitted. W. J. Smith, 



Trustee. 



The Convention then took a recess. 



Feiday, 3 :30 P. M. 

The Convention having been called to order by the Bishop, 
the Rev. Mr. Mallinckrodt presented the following report : 



Diocese of North Carolina, 1906. 49 

The Committee appointed to consider the Men's Thank Offering for 
1907 beg leave to report that in their estimation this is a most com- 
mendable object, meriting the full endorsement of this Convention, and 
that the matter should be pressed home to the hearts of the people by 
the laity of the Diocese, the Clergy giving their hearty co-operation. 
Be it therefore 

Resolved, That this Convention gives its hearty endorsement to the 
Men's Thank Offering to be made at the General Convention which 
meets in Richmond in 1907; and that the Clergy are urged to explain 
fully this matter to their several congregations, and to give their cor- 
dial support and co-operation to the Diocesan Committee appointed to 
take charge of this efi'ort. 

Respectfully submitted. Harris Mallinckrodt, 

Chairman. 

Mr. John Wilkes, from the Committee to Avhom was re- 
ferred the petition of St. James' Parish, Iredell County, 
presented a report and offered the following resolution, which 
was adopted: 

Resolved, That the petition of St. James* Parish, Iredell County, re- 
questing a change of status in connection with the Convention from a 
Parish to an Organized Mission in union with the Convention, be 
granted, the facts presented to the Committee being sufficient in the 
opinion of the Committee to authorize the change, and the Constitutional 
provision (Article I, Section 4) having been waived by the Rector. 

The Secretary read the following report of the Executive 
Committee of the Diocesan Association of the Clergymen's 
Retiring Fund Society : 

Friends of the aged Clergy will be glad to learn that the funds of the 
Clergpnen's Retiring Fund Society have at last passed the quarter 
million mark, and that the increase of $15,000 within the past six 
months gives promise of continued and rapid growth. There has been 
a falling off in the number of congregations in the Diocese making pub- 
lic offerings and a delay in the offerings of the Woman's Auxiliary; 
but in spite of these facts, the sum of contributions is larger than ever 
before, the amount being $585, while the annuities received by the Dio- 
cese in November last amounted to $551. 

At the time of the meeting of the Convention in this place seventeen 
years ago the capital of the Fund was about $40,000, and there were 
but four clergymen in the whole State who were members of the 
Society. Since that time the only survivor of that number has seen the 
Fund increased, as already stated, to more than $250,000, and the num- 
ber of clerical members in the State to 70, of whom 31 remain in this 



60 Journal of Proceedijigs. 

Diocese, 9 in East Carolina, and 6 in the District of Asheville. The 
rest are no longer clergymen of Xorth Carolina, twelve having died and 
others having been transferred to other Dioceses or otherwise with- 
drawn from our roll. 

In view of the value of the work and the possibilities of still further 
advantage as the Fund increases, it is warmly commended to the gen- 
erous consideration of our people, and the Clergy are earnestly urged to 
promote it by calling to it the attention of their congregations and ask- 
ing for an annual public offering for its treasury. 

Respectfully submitted. Jos. Blou^-t Cheshire, 

Julian E. Ingle, 
John London, 
Sidney S. Bost, 
Executive Committee of the Diocesan xissociation, C. R. F. S. 

There being before the Convention no fnrther business, it 
was, on motion, 

Resolved, That after the reading of the Minutes and the conclusion 
of Divine service at 8:30 o'clock this evening the Convention shall stand 
adjourned. 

The Convention then took a recess. 

At 8 :30 o'clock, Evening Prayer was said by the Rev. 
Messrs. R. B. Owens and Homer L. Hoover, a sermon was 
delivered by the Rev. Francis ]\L Osborne on the Call to the

APPENDIX A. 



ADDRESS OF THE BISHOP. 



Brethren of the Clergy and Laity : 

We rejoice to meet again in Annual Council, to exchange 
greetings of Christian love, and to confer together for the 
furtherance of God's cause in the ^wrld. 

We have just been observing a most interesting armiversary 
of the Church in E^orth Carolina. The first recorded ad- 
ministration of the Sacrament of the Lord's Supper within 
the limits of the State of Xorth Carolina was in Pasquotank 
Coimty, on Trinity Sunday, in the year of our Loird one 
thousand seven hundred and six, by the Reverend Rich- 
ard Marsden, who was jDassing through that section on his 
way to South Carolina. This service is mentioned in a letter 
to Bishop Compton, of London, from Governor Glover, who 
states that it was the first time that Sacrament had been 
administered in that country so far as he could learn. 

The Bishops of East Carolina and of Asheville united ^vith 
me in calling the attention of all our isTorth Carolina Church- 
men to this interesting anniversary, and in setting forth and 
authorizing a special Prayer of Commemoration and Thanks- 
giving to be used in all our congregations upon Trinity Sun- 
day, just passed, the bicentenary of the service mentioned by 
Governor Glover. 

I take this occasion to say that in my judgment very great 
injustice has been done to the memory of our Colonial clergy, 
not only by writers whose religious opinions may be thought 
to have excused some prejudice in the matter, but also by our 
own. Church writers and historians. We know something 
like forty names of clergymen who ministered in the Prov- 
ince of Xorth Carolina before the Revolution. Some of them 
had been sent out from England by the Society for the Prop- 
agation of the Gospel, some seem to have come over of their 
own motion, some went from l^orth Carolina, in order that 
they might receive Holy Orders and return and labor in the 
Province. They exercised their ministry under many and 
great disadvantages. They enjoyed absolutely no supervis-

ion or opportunities of receiving counsel or advice from any 
superior. They were frequently unable to avoid being in- 
volved in the bitter and violent personal and political con- 
tentions of tlie times. They were much as we are; and 
through the weakness of this mortal nature they did not al- 
ways preserve the highest standards of character and of con- 
duct. This is certainly true of some of them. But as far 
as I have seen, I recall only two cases in which we are justi- 
fied in saying that they were really unworthy men; while a 
very considerable proportion of them maintained a high 
standard of Christian and ministerial character, and by 
their saintly virtues shone 'as lights in a dark place. There 
have been in our later history no nobler or more heroic ex- 
amples of Christian faith and patience than are furnished 
by the annals of the Church in the Province of ]N"orth Caro- 
lina. We shall do well, my dear brethren, if in our day of 
greater advantages and of lesser perils and trials, we show 
equal zeal and faithfulness in the service of our Master.

dresses, four hundred and thirty-four Confirmations, and seventy cele- 
brations of the Holy Communion. 

August 6th I organized a Mission under the Canons of the Diocese in 
the town of Duke, Harnett County, by the name of St. Stephen's 
Church; and appointed as officers of the Mission, Richard F. J. John- 
son to be Warden, Thomas H. Webb, Clerk, and Edward P. Davis, 
Treasurer. 

The Third Sunday in xldvent, December ITtli, I consecrated "St. 
David's Church," Laurinburg. This church, with lot on which it 
stands, is the gift to the Church of a godly layman, Mr. Mark Morgan, 
of Laurel Hill. The Petition for Consecration was read by the Rev. 
James Luther Martin, and the Sentence of Consecration by the Rev. 
A. B. Hunter. The Rev. Walter J. Smith also assisted in the services. 
I preached the sermon. The unavoidable absence of Archdeacon Os- 
borne, whose faithful labors in this section had much to do with inspir- 
ing the generous act of Mr. Morgan, w^as much regretted. 

TRirsiTY Sunday, June 18th, in Christ Church, Raleigh, 1 advanced 
to the holy order of Priesthood the Rev. Alfred Rives Berkeley, and the 
Rev. James Luther Martin, Deacons. The Candidates were presented 
by the Rev. Dr. Marshall. I preached the sermon. Archdeacon Os- 
borne, the Rev. Dr. Marshall, and the Rev. Dr. Pittenger joined with 
me in the Imposition of Hands. 

The Fifth Sunday after Trinity, July 23d, in the Church of the 
Good Shepherd, Raleigh, I ordained to the Diaconate Samuel Merrill 
Hanff. The Candidate was presented by the Rev. Dr. Pittenger, in 
whose parish he had grown up. The sermon was preached by the Rev. 
Herman Baldwin Dean, Rector of St. Barnabas' Church, Greensboro. 
The Rev. McNeely DuBose and the Rev. James D. Simmons also assisted 
in the services. 

St. James' Day, July 25th, in St. Ambrose Church, Raleigh, I ad- 
vanced to the Holy Order of Priesthood the Rev. Charles Henry Male, 
a colored Deacon. The Candidate was presented by the Rev. James E. 
King; the sermon was preached by Archdeacon Pollard. The above 
named Priests, together with the Rev. McNeely DuBose, the Rev. H. 
Baldwin Dean, the Rev. Henry B. Delany, and also the Rev. Montra- 
ville Spatches, a colored Priest of Southern Florida, united with me in 
the Imposition of Hands. 

The Eighth Sunday after Trinity, August 13th, in St. Luke's Church, 
Salisbury, I ordained to the Diaconate Francis Wellington Ross Arthurs 
and Homer Leach Hoover. The Candidates were presented by the Rev. 
Dr. Murdoch, and the sermon was preached by the Rev. Sidney S. Bost. 



Diocese of North Carolina, 1906. 68 

The Rev. Robert Bruce Owens and the Rev. Locke W. Blaekwelder, also 
assisted in the services. 

The Ninth Sunday after Trinitij, August 20th, in the Church of St. 
Michael and All Angels, Charlotte, I ordained to the Diaconate a young- 
colored man, Robert Nathaniel Perry, of that parish. The Candidate 
was presented by the Rev. Primus P. Alston; the sermon was preached 
by the Rev. Henry B. Delany. Archdeacon Pollard, the Rev. Walter J. 
Smith, the Rev. Eugene L. Plenderson, of Connecticut, and the Rev. 
John R. Logan, of Asheville, assisted in the services. 

September ITtli, 1905, in Christ Church, Raleigh, in the presence of 
the Rev. Dr. Marshall and the Rev. McXeely DuBose, I deposed from 
the Ministry Gaston Battle, Deacon, at his own request, and for causes 
not affecting his moral character. * 

I have given letters dismissory to 

The Rev. Cary Gamble, September 11, 1905, to the Diocese of Virginia. 
The Rev. Horace Thornburgh Owen, March 1, 1906, to the dFoccsc 
of Xew Jersey. 

We have gained during the year: 

Rev. Samuel Merrill Hanff, ordered Deacon July 23. 
Rev. Francis W. R. Arthurs ordered Deacon August 13. 
Rev. Homer Leach Hoover, ordered Deacon August 13. 
Rev. Robert Nathaniel Perry, ordered Deacon August 20. 
Rev. :\Iilton Augustus Barber. Priest from Western Texas, October 
24, 1905. 

Rev. William Walker, Priest, from Vermont, November 29, 1905. 
Rev. Thaddeus A. Cheatham, Priest, from Texas, March 23, 1906. 
We have thus lost three and gained seven, our net gain being four, 
which gives us upon our Clergy list at date of May 1 one Bishop, forty- 
five Priests and twelve Deacons, a total of fifty-eight. I am sorry to 
have to add, however, that of these, four Priests are retired from active 
service on account of age and bodily infirmity, and two of the Deacons 
are engaged only in secular work; so that our actual working number 
is one Bishop, forty-one Priests, and ten Deacons, an active force of 
fifty-two. 

The work of the Clergy remains as at our last Convention except as 
noted hereinafter. 

The Rev. Samuel M. Hanff is serving very acceptably the missions at 
Smithfield and at Duke. At the latter place a very commodious and 
attractive church has been built and is now almost or quite ready for 
consecration. Both missions are giving promise of growth and develop- 
ment, and if the labors of our Missionary can be continued here for a 
year or two w^ithout interruption, we may hope to see foundations laid 
for great usefulness in the future. 

The Rev. Francis W. R. Arthurs has since his ordination been re- 
siding at Ansonville, having charge of All Souls' Church, and giving 
one Sunday each month to St. Timothy's Mission, Union Countv. 



64 Address of the Bishop. 

The Rev. Homer Leach Hoover I placed at Enfield. He gives one 
Sunday each month to Halifax and one to St. Clement's Church, Ring- 
wood. 

The Rev. Robt. N. Perry is serving St. Mark's Chapel, the colored 
Mission at Wilson, where he teaches the mission school, in addition to 
his work in the Chapel. 

The four Deacons are under the direction of their respective Archdea- 
cons, Mr. Arthurs under Archdeacon Osborne, Mr. Hanfi' and Mr. Hoover 
under Archdeacon Tolson, and Mr. Perry under Archdeacon Pollard. 

The Rev. Francis Joyner a year ago resigned the work of Archdeacon 
of Raleigh, but at my request continued his services until November 
1, 1905, at which time the Rev. George M. Tolson succeeded him. At 
my suggestion Archdeacon Tolson resigned his charge at Oxford and 
removed to Weldon, accepting the rectorship of Grace Church, which he 
serves in connection with his wider duties to the Convocation. 

The Rev. Francis Joyner, having resigned the work as Archdeacon, 
and also the church at Ridgeway, has accepted, in connection with his 
other missionary work, the charge of the Church of the Saviour, 
Jackson. 

The Rev. Cary Gamble has been succeeded as Rector of St. Timothy's 
Church, Wilson, by the Rev. Thaddeus A. Cheatham, whom we are glad 
to welcome back from the Diocese of Texas. 

The Rev. James D. Simmons, having resigned the rectorship of St. 
Athanasius', Burlington, last August, became Rector of St. Bartholo- 
mew's Pittsboro, in September; and I have also put under his charge 
the mission of St. Thomas, Sanford. 

The Rev. Milton A. Barber, transferred to us from the Diocese of 
West Texas, was instituted as Rector of St. Athanasius", Burlington, 
the loth of October. We are glad to get back our young men from 
those distant fields of Texas, and to see their energies devoted to the 
work in our old Diocese. 

We are also no less grateful for the presence of another of our 
brethren, long identified with the Church in North Carolina, the Rev. 
William Walker, formerly an Archdeacon of this Diocese, and now in 
charge of the Mission at Mt. Airy, Germanton, and Elkin. 

The Rev. Thos. L. Trott has been removed from the Churches in 
Rowan and Davie counties, after his most faithful service there, and 
has been placed at Durham, to do most important missionary work at 
that point, under the direction of the Rev. Sidney S. Bost. He retains, 
however, the charge of Ascension Mission, Davie County, giving that 
work one Sunday in each quarter. 

The Rev. Simeon J. M. Brown, under Archdeacon Osborne, is serving 
Christ Church, Cleveland, St. George's, Woodleaf, and the Good Shep- 
herd, Cooleemee, while the Rev. Locke W. Blackwelder, under the Rev. 
Dr. Murdoch, is supplying Mr. Brown's congregations in Salisbury. 

The numerous ordinations during the past year have all but ex- 



Diocese of North Carolina^ 1906. 65 

hausted the list of our Candidates for Orders. May 1 we had only two 
left on the list, Richard Roscoe Phelps and William Eanes, and the 
former of these has since that date been ordained to the Diaconate. 

Our Postulants are only three, George C. Pollard, Morrison E. Bethea, 
and Foster Nugent Cox. 

In this connectioiL, I would again remind our brethren of 
the Clergy that there seems to be a too prevalent neglect of 
the proper observance of the Ember seasons, the very purpose 
of which is to supply this need of a faithful and efficient 
ministry. In my judgment, and as your Bishop I believe 
you will feel that my judgment in suoh a matter should 
weigh with you, — in my judgment, it is not a sufficient per- 
foi-mance of our duty to read the appointed prayers on the 
Sundays preceding the Ember Days, and upon such of those 
days as may happen to coiucide with a regular week-day ser- 
vice ; though I can affirm of my own knowledge and observa- 
tion that even this meager observance is often omitted. The 
Prayer Book appoints these days, and such an appointment 
imposes upon us the obligation of observing them. If we 
caimot observe them publicly, though certainly most of us 
can observe them publicly, we must at least observe them 
personally and in our families and teach oiir people to do so. 
The Prayer Book requires the Clergy each Sunday to '^de- 
clare unto the people what Holy-days or Easting-days are in 
the week following to be observed.'' Thus it is provided 
that where circumstances may not allow of public services 
on such days the people may be at least reminded of their 
duty. The importance of such public notice and warning, 
given to the people, is specially great in connection with 
these days when we call upon God to send out laborers into 
His vineyard. Calling upon God in a matter of such vital 
concern to His Church, the people may be thereby reminded 
of their own responsibility, and be made to feel that the 
answer to their prayer can only come through the operation 
of God's good Spirit in their hearts quickening in them the 
love of His service, making them responsive to the necessities 
of His Church, so that to the call for laborers they may reply, 
'*Here am I: send me." I have more than once called your 
attention to this subject. Let me pray you, my dear breth- 
ren of the Clergy, to ask yourselves seriously whether you 
are coming up to the full measure of vour duty to God and 
to God's people in this matter of supplying this crying need. 



66 Address of the BisJiop. 

The same neglect of the Rogation Days prevails too com- 
monly thronghont the Diocese. We are so largely an agri- 
cnltural people that these days of special prayer for God's 
blessing npon the labors of the husbandman should appeal 
strongly to our people. I trust we may have a revival in the 
observance of these days. 

DIOCESxVX MISSIONS. 

In these annual addresses to the Convention, I have usually 
dwelt at some length upon the missionaiy work of the Diocese. 
It is at present not less interesting or important than hereto- 
fore, but within the past two years, it has come to be less 
closely related to the business of this Convention. We never 
had to give the work proper consideration, and I think we 
have done wisely in dividing it out to the three Convocations, 
under the respective Archdeacons. I believe their reports, 
with the reports of the treasurers of the Convocations, will 
show that we raise much, more money than we did under the 
old arrangement and that it has been brought somewhat 
closer to the minds and hearts of the people. Indeed, at 
present, we find more difficulty in supplying the men to do 
the work than in raising the money for their support. Ac- 
cording to the best information at this moment at hand, we 
have during the past year raised for Diocesan Missions, 
including the amount used for that purpose from my collec- 
tions, the sum of thirty-nine hundred dollars, a considerably 
larger amount than any I remember to have been raised be- 
fore for the same purpose in the Diocese as at present con- 
stituted. 

But there remains much still to be desired in the direction 
of increased interest and liberality in the support of this 
very important branch of the work. I prefer to retain the 
name, ^'Diocesan Missions," for it is only a change in the 
method of the work, not in its character. Our clergy should 
take more pains to interest the laity in the work, and to secure 
an attendance of the laity at the principal meetings of the 
Convocations one each year, where appropriations are made 
and means provided. !N"either the Clergy nor the laity have 
fully realized the importance of these annual meetings of the 
Convocations. When they shall have done so, we shall see 
new life and greater success in our missionary work. 

Let me a2:ain call the attention of these Convocations to 



Diocese of North Carolina^ 1906. 67 

the scheme proposed some years ago — but not put into opera- 
tion — of asking offerings in all the Sunday schools during 
the season of Advent for our Diocesan Missions. I commend 
this matter to the Archdeacons of the several Convocations. 
Perhaps a resolution of this Convention endorsing this recom- 
mendation would help the Archdeacons and the Convocations 
in enlisting the co-operation of the people. 

In connection with this subject of Diocesan Missions there 
will be submitted to the Convention reports from the Com- 
mittees appointed a year ago to consider some method of 
securing the greater interest of our laymen in this work and 
their more effective co-operation. I ask the earnest attention 
of the Convention to these reports. 

Perhaps there can bc' no better place than this to speak of 
the general duty of tli© Church to her Clergy. We hear and 
see on all sides that this is an era of unexampled wealth and 
prosperity throughout the country. The material and finan- 
cial improvement is visible on all sides. I ask you, my 
brethren of the laity, if you have been careful to see that 
your faithful pastors have partaken of the general prosperity 
and good fortune which have come to you. Along with this 
general prosperity has gone its inevitable accompaniment, 
an increase in the price of commodities. Unless you do see 
that with the rise in the price of the necessaries of life, your 
pastors receive an increase of income, then your prosperity 
brings loss and suffering to those whom the Apostle exhorts 
you to esteem veiy highly in love for their work's sake. Let 
me ask you to think of these things. I can see many evi- 
dences of your increasing wealth. I enjoy your gracious 
hospitality, and have my part in your welfare and rejoice 
with you. Let me see in the reports of our faithful Clergy 
that you make them sharers of your joy and partakers of the 
good things which Grod has sent so abundantly to many of 
you. 

THE MEX'S THAISi^K OFFEKING OF 1907. 

Acting upon the request of the Board of Missions, which 
has my most liearty approval, I ask your attention to this 
important matter. I have appointed a. Committee of men 
to co-operate with like Committees in all the Dioceses in 
promoting the plan for a great Thank Offering to be presented 
at the General Convention of 1907 at Kichmond, from all 



68 Address of the Bislioih 

tlie men of the Church, to express our sense of the blessings 
we have enjoyed in three centuries of Christian civiliza- 
tion. This Committee will doubtless bring the subject prom- 
inently before this Convention. 

AN OFFERING FOR SJfN FRANCISCO. 

I am sure all must have felt a dee2> sympathy for our breth- 
ren of San Francisco in the awful calamity Avhich has so 
re<2ently befallen them. There were reasons why I thought 
it best not to make any appeal to the Diocese upon the first 
announcement. Eelief poured in to their aid from all sides, 
and without doubt our own peojDle gave liberally through 
those open channels of general sympathy and helpfulness. 
But I believe we all feel that as a Diocese we should make 
some special manifestation of our love for our brethren in 
this their time of need. I suggest that the Convention ap- 
point some Sunday on which they shall ask that a collection 
be taken in every Church (where this has not already been 
done) for the Churches of San Erancisco; the proceeds of 
such collections to be sent through the Board of Missions to 
the Bishop of California, to be used at his discretion. 

ST. mart's school. 

I can most heartily and unreservedly congratulate the 
Convention and the Diocese upon the condition of St. Mary's 
School. We have for years been under such a stress of feel- 
ing and effort in regard to this institution, that it is hard to 
realize that the situation which produced that stress has 
completely ceased. The goal of our desires was to see that 
valued property of the Church freed from debt. That goal 
has been reached. The purchase-money has been paid in 
full. There is practically no debt whatever resting upon 
the property. One of the mortgage notes for the sum of five 
thousand dollars remains uncancelled, being held in trust by 
the President of the Board of Trustees to secure the princi- 
pal of the David R. Murchison Scholarship. This, however, 
does not constitute a debt in the ordinary sense of the word, 
since it is not demandable, so long as the school stands ready 
to afl^ord the opportunities and privileges designated to the 
beneficiary of the Scholarship. 

This work, which lias been accomplished during the last 
nine years, is little short of amazing in its proportions when 



Diocese of North Carolina], 1906. 69 

we remember our situation at its beginning. In purchase- 
money, exclusive of interest, in additional buildings, in per- 
manent improvements to existing buildings, in adding to the 
equipment of the School, a total of sometliing like seventy- 
five thousand dollars has been expended. Add to this the 
thirteen thousand five hundred dollars in hand for the erec- 
tion of the Auditorium, and the establishment of the Eliza 
Battle Pittman Memorial Scholarships, and we closely ap- 
proximate the sum of ninety thousand dollars! I believe 
that no man in the Convention of 1897, which endorsed the 
proposition of the Trustees for the purchase of St. Mary's at 
the price of fifty thousand dollars, would have believed such 
a result to be within the limits of possibility. 

This was made possible in the first instance by the courage 
and generosity of the Diocese of ^orth Carolina. More than 
half the cash payment of ten thousand dollars, required to 
secure the property in the first instance, and in the aggregate 
no less than the sum of $10,135.63, w^as paid out of the 
treasury of this Convention towards the $50,000 purchase- 
money ; and a large proportion of personal subscriptions and 
donations came from the lay men and women of the Diocese. 
And we have our reward in seeing this noble institution 
secured to the Church, to remain through all generations, as 
we trust, a school of Christian nurture for our daughters, 
and an unfailing source of supply to the life of the Church. 
And what has been done should be only an incentive to doing 
better still. We should only raise our hopes and our projects 
for the extension and development of this most important 
work. If I say no more in this place, it is only because in 
the report of the Trustees of St. Mary's School, already 
before this Convention, I have set forth my hopes, and ven- 
tured to submit some suggestions upon this most important 
and interesting subject. 

There is one matter incidentally connected with the action 
of the Convention on behalf of St. Mary's School, which, I 
think, should iDe mentioned. Our exclusive devotion of 
thought and effort to this work, has caused some perhaps un- 
avoidable difficulties in our proper Convention affairs. Funds 
which might have been used for diocesan purposes have been 
devoted to the purposes of the school. I think we have done 
well and wisely in thus subordinating our diocesan interests 
to those of the school during this critical period. But the 



TO Address of the Bishop. 

purcliase-money is now paid. The property is secui^ed. In 
my judgment we should not further deplete ouj treasury by 
taking of our limited diocesan funds for the school. I see 
by the report of the Treasurer to this Convention that there 
is remaining of the bequest of Miss Mary Euflfin Smith some- 
thing over thirteen hundred dollars in money and securities. 
I do not know whether anything more remains to be received 
from the executor of the estate. I suggest that the balance 
of this fund, whatever it may amount to, be devoted to in- 
creasing the permanent endoA\Tnent fund of the Diocese. If 
this be done, and if our other uninvested funds can be in- 
vested at a fair rat© of interest, a moderate assessment upon 
our congregations will, I believe, produce a sufficient revenue 
for our very moderate annual expenditures. 

I have not usually concerned myself in these Convention 
addresses with financial matters, and I do not propose to 
enlarge upon the subject now. I think I can assure the 
Convention that, except in the matter of our proper diocesan 
expenses, the year just past has been satisfactory in a busi- 
ness and financial way. And even in these diocesan expenses 
the Treasurer is able to show a real improvement in our 
affairs. I have already pointed out that we have raised an 
unusually large amount for Diocesan Missions; we have very 
nearly paid in full our increased apportionment for Foreign 
and Domestic Missions ; the Woman's Auxiliary is extending 
in its work and enlarging its gifts, and becoming every year 
more useful; the Thompson Orphanage continues to deserve 
and to receive the generous support of our people. All de- 
partments of our work show signs of healthy vigor and de- 
velopment. Let the Convention but put its o^vn immediate 
financial affairs upon a practical basis, and we may look 
forward hopefully to a year of faithful and efficient work and, 
with God's blessing, to advancing power and usefulness. 

It seems to be expected that the addresses of our Bishops 
this year should devote much space to those theological con- 
troversies and to those sad exposures in great financial and 
business institutions, which have occupied so much of the 
time and attention of readers of the newspapers for some 
months past. I am doubtful how far such matters can be 
made a profitable part of our discussions. We are not our- 
selves disturbed by dissensions in regard to the fundamental 
articles of the Christian faith. Recognizing in Christianity 



Diocese of North Carolina, 1906. 71 

tlie imequivocal assertion of the intervention of the divine 
purpose and operation in the affairs of this world ; and seeing 
in our Lord Jesus Christ the manifestation of the divine in 
the human, we accept the Creeds of the Church and the 
Scriptures of the 'New Testament as the testimony of credi- 
ble witnesses to amazing facts. Whenever and however the 
divine comes into connection with the human it must tran- 
scend our comprehension. If w^e reject the Catholic Faith 
as to the fact and method of the Incarnation, while retaining 
a belief in the Incarnation, we have only shifted the position. 
We have solved no difficulty. Given the presence and the 
power of God, and one method of its manifestation becomes 
as easy to believe, and as impossible to understand, as an- 
other. And so we are content with that which was from the 
beginning delivered by those who were eye-witnesses, and who 
were the commissioned messengers of Him who is the Truth. 
And we hold it a breach of faith and of loyalty for those 
who have received that commission to deny the message. 

And in the sad exposures which have brought shame and 
ruin to honored names and to many otherwise worthy men, I 
see first of all a warning against self-confidence. We dare 
not minimize the guilt of selfishness and dishonesty, and the 
breach of trust which uses stewardship for others as a means 
of personal profit for ourselves. No degree of wealth or 
power can save from final ruin and degradation, in this life 
or in the next, the man who succeeds in appropriating to 
himself that which should rightly go to another; or who 
refuses, whether personally or through the intricacies of cor- 
porate management, to give to those depending on him a 
just reward for their service. All this is true, but while we 
admit its truth, I fear we may be falling under its condem- 
nation. What I have to say is that we must not exhaust our 
virtue in condemning the great offences of others, but so 
economize this quality that it may first of all search out and 
condemn in us the like sins. 

Modern life and business is so marvelously intricate and 
complicated that it is difficult even to state its moral prob- 
lems ; much more difficidt to solve them. We have been ac- 
customed with an easy self-complacency to assume that only 
our colored population divorce morality from religion, and 
indulge the pleasing emotions of spiritual fervor, without 
troubline: themselves too much about the Ten Commandments. 



72 Address of the Bisliop. 

Has it not been forced \y^\\ our consciences during these 
last few years that many of tlie most highly cultivated and 
most respectable religious people of the country exhibit in a 
more refined form exactly this same moral paradox? And 
are not we ourselves even as others ? 

Let us then not so much busy ourselves with condemning 
others. Let us seek to ever have before our eyes the highest 
standard of Faith and Practice, and remember that it is the 
business of the Church to save the world by exhibiting the 
presence and the power of God in its members. The Church 
in Korth Carolina has a power and an influence out of pro- 
portion to its numerical strength. Let us thank God for 
what He hath done for us in the past, and go forward to the 
work which He commands us to do for Him in the world that 
lies open before us. 

Jos. Blofxt Cheshire, 
Bishop of North Carolina. 



The following circular letter was issued by the Bishop and 
the appended prayer licensed for use on the occasion re- 
ferred to: 

To the Clergy and Laity of the Protestant Episcopal Church in the 
State of ^'orth Carolina. 

Dear Brethrex: — The approaching holy feast of Trixity Suxday 
will be the two hundredth anniversary of the first recorded adminis- 
tration of the Sacrament of the Lord's Supper within the territory of 
North Carolina. Some may conjecture that earlier instances are prob- 
able, as certainly they were possible; but the first of which we have 
any record is that mentioned by Governor Glover in a letter to Henry 
Compton, Bishop of London, dated September 25, 1708 (Hawks's N. 
C, II, 301, and X. C. C. R., I, 689), in these words: "The Reverend 
Richard Marsden, waiting here for a passage to South Carolina, 
thought it convenent to administer the Sacrament of the Lord's Sup- 
per, which is the first time I can learn of its being administered in this 
poor country; this was done on Trinity Sunday, 1706." 

We, your Bishops and servants in Christ, feel that so interesting an 
anniversary should not be allowed to pass unnoticed. It marks in a 
special way the feeble beginnings of our ancient Church in this new 
country; it recalls the pathetic and heroic memories of those faithful 
men who brought into the civilization of a new continent the leaven 
of our historic faith, worship, and polity. We call upon our brethren 



Diocese of North Carolma, 1906. 73 

of the Clergy of North Carolina to remind our lay people of these 
sacred memories and associations of our past, and especially on this 
coming Trixity Sunday to remember before God with devout grati- 
tude those of His servants departed to whom we owe so much, the 
Clergy and Churchmen of our Colonial days. 

We therefore set forth and authorize for use in all our churches on 
Trinity Sunday, June 10, 1906, immediately before the final Blessing, 
or after the General Thanksgiving in Morning and Evening Prayer, 
the special form of prayer printed on the following page. 
Your brethren and servants in Christ, 

Jos. Blount Cheshire, 

Bishop of North Carolina. 
Robert Strange, 

Bishop of East Carolina. 
Junius M. Horner, 

Bishop of Asheville. 
Raleigh, K C, May 30, 1906. 

Prayer of Special Commemoration and Thanksgiving, 
Trinity Sunday, June 10, 1906. 

God of our fathers. Who, through the labors of Thy servants in 
past ages, hast built up Thy Kingdom in this great country and nation, 
we give Thee hearty thanks and most high praise, as for the lives and 
labors of all those faithful missionaries and pastors who gave them- 
selves to Thy service in the Thirteen American Colonies, so especially 
at this time, for those who in the Province and Colony of North Caro- 
lina ministered Thy Word and Sacraments to the people. Into this 
strange land they came, the messengers of Thy Truth and Love, and 
through many trials and dangers they sought Thy wandering sheep. 
We thank Thee for their faith and patience, for their sufferings and 
labors, and for the fruits of their sacrifices which we to-day enjoy. 
Thou didst water with the dews of Thy grace the little vine which on 
these shores they planted; Thou madest room for it, so that when it 
had taken root it filled the land. 

Continue, we pray Thee, Thy love and favor to Thy Church and 
people; pardon our sins, fill us with Thy Spirit, sustain us with the 
heavenly food of Thy holy Word and Sacraments, keep us faithful to 
Thy Truth, make Thy Church a light and a guide and a sure founda- 
tion: bless our State and our country, and hasten the coming of Thy 
Kingdom; through Christ Jesus, our Lord. Amen. 

The foregoing "Prayer of Special Commemoration and Thanks- 
giving" is hereby licensed for use on Trinity Sunday, June 10, 1906. 

Jos. Blount Cheshire, 
Bishop of North Carolina.

St. Cyprian's Chapel was completed in February. Through the Bishop 
and the American Church Building Fund we obtained $365. Rev. F. W. 
Hilliard, trustee and treasurer, donated $54.50. St. Augustine's School 
gave $25. Rev. J. W. Perry and Rev. J. E. King sent smaller sums. 
Miss Horner gave a donation and Mr. J. C. Horner presented a beauti- 
ful, large Bible to St. Cyprian's Chapel. Mrs. Graham, Mrs. R. W. Las- 
siter, and Mrs. Gilliam are true friends of this work, bringing the 
church before the colored people as often as they can. Last Christmas 
Miss Catharine W. Hilliard sent a beautiful set of toys for the Sunday- 
school. During the year I have received much encouragement from 
friends in Henderson and $5 to aid two orphans. The IMission is grow- 
ing amid many difficulties because ignorance is deified by some of the 
colored people. When I came here more than three years ago I found 
two communicants — Mr. C. H. Taylor and his wife. We measure our 
success by influence and not by numbers. I still go once a month to the 
county poor-house when the roads will permit.

I go to this mission once a month. If there could be more frequent 
services I am sure there would be better growth at this Mission. Not- 
withstanding this, the Mission school is doing much good and I am glad 
to state that this Mission has met all of its canonical requirements.

The congregation worshipping in this Chapel have the opportunity of 
receiving the Holy Communion every Sunday at Christ Church. This 
fact, together with the fact that the Mission is entirely dependent on 
Christ Church Parish for its maintenance and on its Rector, with the 
assistance of certain laymen, for Sunday services, explains the absence 
of some items usually found in parochial reports. The attendance at 
the day school has been materially affected by the graded school recently 
opened near the Chapel.

Since last report the Mission was organized by the Bishop with eight 
members, and Dr. A. C. Hoyt, Warden, and Wm. F. Joyner, Secretary and 
Treasurer. The, Mission school has done good work with Miss Sue H. 
Hill, teacher. The number of pupils is very uncertain, having ranged from 
42 to 22. We have been fortunate in having money to pay the salary 
of teacher, and since it has some official recognition in the allowance of 
fifty dollars by the Executive Missionary Committee of the Convocation, 
we feel that the school is a permanent institution in the Mission. I 
append an account of all moneys received and paid out for the school 
with grateful acknowledgment to all who so aided our work.

warded to the Treasurer of the Convocation of Ealeigh. — Secretary.]

St. Simeon's Church will soon be completed, and the crude benches 
will be replaced by neatly-made pews. Through the kindness of our 
Bishop, we got $80.80 from Northern friends for the building fund. Mr. 
John Wilkes also gave $2, Rev. William Walker sent us $2, and Rev. 
McXeely DuBose donated $2!. With this sum we hope to make the 
church comfortable and attractive. In a short time the cemetery will 
be enclosed and laid out in squares under the wise direction of the donor, 
Benjamin P. Thorp, Esq. Mr. Thorp is a good friend and a Kind neigh- 
bor to the colored people at Satterwhite.

The report includes all services at mission points. The work in 
Scotlank Neck is favorably progressing. While we have no great in- 
crease in numbers, there is greatly increasing interest in the services 
of the Church. Our Lent services were well attended throughout, and 
much interest was manifested in the early Communion, which speaks 
well for the people, considering the cold, wet, disagreeable weather we 
had in Lent.

I assumed charge of this Parish Xovember 1st. This report, there- 
fore, mainly covers only a period of six months. Owing to the fact 
that the Parish was so long without a Rector, the financial statement 
is incomplete, though both the former Treasurer and his successor are 
excellent business men and have performed their duties well. When I 
took charge, the Parish was largely in debt, but we do not now owe 
a cent. Though the last payments were made too late to be credited 
upon the books of the Treasurer of the Convention. At the time I write 
this we are entirely free from all indebtedness.

121 Report of Archdeacons. 

REPORT OF THE ARCHDEACON OF RALEIGH. 
Rt. Rev. Jos. B. Cheshire, D.D., Bishop of North Carolina. 

Rt. Rev. and Dear Sir: — ^As you know, I was made Archdeacon in 
October, but did not begin my work until November 1st, 1905. This 
report, therefore, covers only a period of six months. During this time 
I have visited and officiated as follows : 

Smithfield, 2 visits, 3 services, 3 sermons, 2 celebrations Holy Com- 
munion. 

Selma, 2 visits, 1 service, 1 sermon. 

Enfield, 3 visits, 3 services, 3 sermons, 2 addresses, 2 celebrations 
Holy Communion; conducted Sunday school exercises twice, met and 
assisted in reorganizing Woman's Auxiliary. 

Halifax, 2 visits, 4 services, 3 sermons, 2 celebrations Holy Com- 
munion. 

Ringwood, 2 visits, 2 services, 2 sermons, 1 celebration Holy Com- 
munion. 

Lawrence, 2 visits, 2 services, 2 sermons, 2 celebrations Holy Com- 
munion. 

St. Mary's, Edgecombe, 2 visits, 2 services, 2 sermons. 

Speed, 2 visits: made calls on all the homes and the places of busi- 
ness. 

Tarboro, 1 visit, short address and 1 sermon. 

Scotland Neck, 1 visit, 1 address, 2 sermons; met Woman's Auxiliary 
and the Men's Missionary League. 

Rocky Mount, 1 visit; conferred with the Rector; sickness prevented 
meeting with Woman's Auxiliary according to previous appointment. 

Roanoke Rapids, 3 visits, 3 services, 3 sermons, 2 addresses, 1 cele- 
bration Holy Communion; met both Sunday and week-day schools. 

Ridgeway, 1 visit, 1 service, 1 sermon, 1 celebration Holy Communion. 

Henderson, 1 visit, 1 sermon. 

Oxford, 1 visit, 1 service, 1 sermon. 

Littleton, 1 visit, 3 services, 2, sermons, 5 addresses, 1 celebration 
Holy Communion. 

Durham, 1 visit, 2 addresses, 1 celebration Holy Communion. 

Raleigh, 1 visit; attended meeting Executive Committee Convocation 
of Raleigh. 

At nearly all of these places I have made calls on persons and fami- 
lies, and in most instances have made a large number of such visits. 

I have conducted two District Conferences — that of the Edgecombe 
District having been held in Littleton, and that of Granville in Dur- 
ham. Sickness of myself and family has prevented my visiting other 
places as I had planned to do — a loss of time to be regretted from many 
points of view. In some instances I was kept from going to places 
which I greatly desired to visit, because I was unable to suit the con- 
venience of the Rectors and parishes. Lenten services also interfered 
with making proper appointments. 



Diocese of North Carolina, 1906, 125 

The little experience I have gained prompts me to make the following 
recommendations : 

First. The Archdeacon should be freed from the care of a parish. I 
have been much hindered as Archdeacon by my duties as Rector of 
Grace Church, Weldon. The situation is made especially difficult when 
the parish treats its Rector exceptionally well, as has been the case here. 
I could not have anywhere a kinder or more appreciative people. Natu- 
rally my interest and sympathies are continually enlisted in their be- 
half. This obviously militates against my work as Archdeacon. Be- 
sides, it is emphatically true thai the duties of Archdeacon, properly 
performed, are sufficient for one man. 

Secondly. What may be called a policy of concentration and expan- 
sion ought to be inaugurated in this Convocation. We have too few 
missionaries, and they are doing too little work. This is no reflection 
on our present staff of laborers. It is the fault of the system we have 
been compelled to adopt. The missionaries live, for the most part, with 
the parishes that give them the major portion of their salaries. Inevita- 
bly, therefore, the most of their work is done at home, to the neglect of 
the purely missionary and most needy points. It is unreasonable to 
expect large returns from visitations and ministrations occurring only 
once a month. As is well known, our missionaries spend only two or 
three days at the points which they visit monthly. A business conducted 
in like manner would scarcely prove successful. The "Kings business" 
ought to be managed, no less than secular affairs, by sound common 
sense. We ought to have more men, so as to concentrate upon promis- 
ing places, and at the same time reach out effectively to territory not 
yet occupied by our Church, or occupied so feebly as to produce few 
desirable results. For instance, Lawrence and St. Mary's, Edgecombe, 
ought to have a resident young priest. There is much promise in that 
field. Roanoke Rapids ought to have a resident minister. There, too, 
we have a great opportunity, which is but poorly grasped, since the 
priest in charge can be there so seldom. Duke has the same needs as 
Roanoke Rapids, and both places should have, in addition to mission 
schools, a day nursery and hospital and reading and recreation rooms. 
Smithfield and Selma are interesting points and would make an excel- 
lent field for some energetic man. Besides these missions, there are 
several small but hopeful parishes that ought to have resident minis- 
ters who can devote all their time to the home work. I venture to 
mention in this connection Weldon, Enfield, Littleton, Jackson, Louis- 
burg. Our motto ought to be "One man for one place," and we should 
strive for the goal indicated with all the grace, faith and energy at our 
command. 

Thirdly. But in order to do all this — the freeing of the hands, ener- 
gies and sympathies of the Archdeacon, and the freeing of the mis- 
sionaries that they may do telling missionary work — we need much 
more money than we are at present receiving. Five thousand dollars 



126 Report of Archdeacons. 

ought to be our annual income. Certainly we cannot have gratifying 
progress without an income of twenty-five hundred — and that is too 
little if we are in earnest and mean to do genuine church extension 
work. 

Fourth. I also recommend that increased efforts be made to organize 
and make effective the movement known as the Men's Missionary 
League. We have only six local organizations of the League in this 
Convocation. We have an eflScient and most excellent young man as 
our Secretary and Eegistrar, Mr. H. M. London, who earnestly desires 
to aid the parishes and missions in* developing this movement, which 
has in it so much promise, not only for the men themselves, but for the 
whole Church. The growth of the Church really depends, of course, 
upon the zeal, activity and liberality of our laity. If the occupants of 
our pews and the owners of pocket-books and bank accounts are indif- 
ferent, inert and illiberal, there can be no satisfactory progress; the 
Church will neither grow in numbers nor expand in any way whatever, 
but, on the contrary, will deteriorate and display a pitiful weakness in 
the sight of a contemptuous opposition. 

I would therefore earnestly suggest that all our parishes and mis- 
sions avail themselves, as soon as possible, of the services of our Lay 
Secretary and Registrar; and I would add that the Archdeacon stands 
ready to give any aid and encouragement that he may be able to render 
at any time. 

I am ready, sir, to co-operate with you, and with the Convention, in 
any way that may be deemed advisable for the furtherance of the views 
I have herein expressed. I am profoundly convinced that this is a very 
favorable time for a decided advance movement in our missionary opera- 
tions, and that we are therefore under solemn obligation to the Great 
Head of the Church to make it. The whole State is prospering as never 
before in its history, and is growing rapidly. We owe it to God and 
our glorious heritage to keep pace with the growth and prosperity of 
the Commonwealth. 

Thanking you, dear Bishop, for your steadfast confidence and sym- 
pathy, and submitting herewith our Treasurer's report, which reveals 
sufficiently and effectively our financial status, I remain, 

Yours sincerely, Geo. M. Tolsox, 

Archdeacon of Raleigh.

SUMMARY OF THE YEAB'S WORK. 

Held or took part in one hundred and twenty services, delivered 
eighty-eight sermons and addresses, celebrated one marriage, held six 
funeral services, celebrated the Holy Communion thirty times in public 
and once in private, baptized six adults and fifteen children, conducted 
nine District meetings, and attended one meeting of the Convocation of 
Charlotte. 

I have held services periodically, as far as possible, in three parishes, 
two stations, and three missions where there was no minister in charge; 
occasionally in two parishes, eight missions, and one station where there 
was a minister in charge; and have held one or more services in as 
many as thirty difTerent places during the year.

Besides the above services in the Diocese, I took part in a service and 
preached in St. Athanasius' Church, Los Angeles, California, by invita- 
tion of the minister in charge, and baptized an infant in Bakersfield, 
California, by permission of the rector there. I also held a service and 
preached in a Baptist house of worship in a village called Emmet, 
Xavarro County, Texas, where there is no organized Church congrega- 
tion. 

The quarterly District meetings have been regularly held and well 
attended by the clergy of the Convocation, who have been faithful and 
loyal in their efforts to render these meetings helpful to the cause of 
religion; and it is very obvious that such has been the result to a 
greater or less extent in proportion to the interest taken in their pro- 
ceedings by the laity where they have been held. No more useful 
means has ever been devised for promoting the growth and welfare of 
the Church in a Diocese situated as ours is, if the people will attend 
the meetings and carry out the object they are designed to foster and 
promote.

130 Report of Archdeacons. 

The report of the Treasurer shows the financial status of the work, 
which is a slight improvement on last year, though not in proportion 
to the increased demand on our funds and the greatly improved finan- 
cial condition of the country. 

It is a sad and discouraging fact that the contributions of our people 
do not, as a rule, bear anything like a fair proportion to the increased 
prosperity of the country and the expenses of living. Consequently our 
clergy, as a rule, both parochial and missionary, are not permitted to 
share the temporal prosperity of the country which God has so abun- 
dantly granted His people. So the missionary work especially is 
cramped and limited, and were it not for the generous contributions of 
a few great-souled individuals, the work would have to be more seriously 
curtailed than it is. 

The completion of a neat and comfortable church building in Laurin- 
burg, the gift of a generous layman, creates what I trust will soon 
become a strong center of Church work in Scotland County. There are 
a few Church members in the town, and a much larger number in the 
country near Laurel Hill, and it is proposed to constitute St. David's 
Church, Laurinburg, the center of all the work in that county, but to 
continue the services at Laurel Hill and other places as heretofore. This 
arrangement seems to have strengthened the work in that section; and 
if we could place an active man there and support him for a year or 
two, there would most likely be substantial and permanent growth. The 
Rev. S. J. M. Brown has had charge of the congregations at Cooleemee 
Mills, Woodleaf and Cleveland, viz., the Good Shepherd, St. George's, 
and Christ Church, for the past three months. He has done excellent 
work, and the people are encouraged. 

The Rev. L. W. Blackwelder still preaches at St. Matthew's and St. 
Jude's, Rowan County. He also takes the place of the Rev. Mr. Brown 
in Salisbury, under the direction of the Rev. Mr. Murdoch. 

The Rev. F. W. R. Arthurs has charge of All Souls' Church, Anson- 
ville, and St. Timothy's Chapel, Union County, and lives at Ansonville. 

The Rev. James Luther Martin has charge of Monroe, Rockingham 
and Hamlet, and this field, through the good management of the minis- 
ter in charge and the generosity of his people, has provided almost a 
support for the missionary, thus relieving the treasury to a considerable 
extent. 

The Rev. William L. Mellichampe has charge of the congregations at 
Thomasville, High Point, Leaksville, Spray, Reidsville, Cunningham 
and Milton. He has been assisted for some months by Mr. R. P. 
Eubanks as lay reader and catechist, who has been doing very accept- 
able service throughout this large and most important field. 

The Rev. William Walker has charge of the congregations at German- 
ton, Mount Airy and Elkin. 

The Rev. Messrs. F. M. Osborne and J. H. Crosby have charge of the 
Missions in and around the city of Charlotte, viz., the Church of the 



Diocese of North Carolina, 1906. 131 

Holy Comforter, St. Martin's Chapel, St. Andrew's Chapel and the 
Chapel of Hope. 

Two mission schools — one at St. Mark's, Mecklenburg, and the other 
at St. James', Iredell — have done good work in the past year. 

Miss Cheshire, the Diocesan Secretary of the Woman's Auxiliary, has 
spent several months at Mayodan, where she has been doing practically 
the work of a deaconess, in which she has most clearly demonstrated the 
great need and utility of such a functionary in our mission work. 

The Rev. E. L. Ogilby has charge of the congregations in Statesville; 
also of St. James', Iredell, and St. Mark's, Mecklenburg. 

The Rev. A. R. Berkeley has charge of the congregations at Walnut 
Cove, Knowlhurst ( near Madison ) , Madison, Mayodan and Stoneville. 
He has improved the work generally in his extensive field, but he greatly 
needs more facilities for carrying on his important work. 

The Rev. Thomas L. Trott still ministers at the Cooleemee Plantation, 
in Davie County, where the Church people are trying to build a chapel. 

The Archdeacon gives services once a month at St. David's Chapel, 
Laurinburg, and in the vicinity of Laurel Hill; also occasionally at 
Mount Mourne, Mocksville, the congregations under the Revs. S. J. M. 
Brown, J. H. Crosby and F. W. R. Arthurs, and at other places, as 
appears from this report. 

It will be observed that every congregation in the Convocation where 
i^.ere is a church building is being served at least occasionally. But in 
order to accomplish this we have been compelled to stretch our line 
until it is too thin in many places to do more than barely hold the 
ground we have taken possession of until reinforcements can be pro- 
cured; and this can only be done when the laymen of the Church pro- 
vide the men and the means. 

But what shall we do in regard to the inviting fields still unoccupied 
in the Convocation? We have no missionary work in Scotland County 
except the little that is being done by the Archdeacon; and neither 
church nor minister in the counties of Montgomery, Stanly, Randolph 
and Yadkin. Surely it is time for the Church in this Diocese to put 
forth some organized and manly effort to improve and enlarge her mis- 
sionary operations. 

THE ilEN'S MISSIONARY LEAGUE. 

A most important movement has been inaugurated in the Convocation 
during the year, which is calculated to promote the interest of our 
people in the cause of Home Missions. I refer to the Men's Missionary 
League. Through the efforts of the Secretary, Hon. J. C. Buxton, four 
chapters have been organized, and it is to be hoped that one may soon 
be created in every congregation, and that every male member of the 
Church of proper age may soon be enrolled as an active worker in this 
good cause. 

Respectfully, your obedient servant, 

E. A. Osborne, 

Archdeacon of the Convocation of Charlotte. 



132 Report of Archdeacons, 

REPORT OF THE ARCHDEACON FOR WORK AMONG COLORED 

PEOPLE. 

To the Rt. Rev. Joseph Blount Cheshire, D.D., 

Bishop of North Carolina. 

My Dear Bishop: — In making this my ninth annual report, I cannot 
but feel thankful to Almighty God for his goodness and mercy to me 
and mine during the past year, and for the many blessings poured out 
upon us and our work in all parts of the Archdeaconry. 

We have been able to add one new building — a chapel at Oxford — to 
our number, and the work there is prospering greatly under our faithful 
Missionary. 

The work of the Archdeacon during the past year has been as follows : 

Holy Communions 45 Addresses 136 

Services . 190 Burials 1 

Sermons 55 Baptisms 14 

One of our chapels has laid upon the altar during the year more 
than a thousand dollars — an act worthy of emulation by all of our 
Missions. I long to see the day when some of our Missions can 
stand alone and be numbered among the givers and supporters of the 
Church instead of receivers and dependent, as is now the case. 

I deem it my duty to lay before you more definite knowledge of the 
fire of January 26th, 1906, by which we lost our home and school build- 
ing at Littleton. I shall begin with the beginning. In 1900, having 
the opportunity of purchasing a small tract of land at Littleton con- 
taining thirty-one acres, on which there were two buildings — one an 
old residence of nine rooms, and the other a large barn, which could 
not be duplicated to-day for less than $2,000 — without hesitation I 
closed the ofl'er for $1,000 by paying $200 in cash and giving my per- 
sonal notes for one, two, three, and four years, of $200 each, secured 
by a deed of trust on the land, with the understanding that the same 
would be deeded to the Diocese when suflBcient money had been raised 
to cancel these outstanding notes and pay the cash put in by me. With 
the exception of the amount due me, the property has been freed from 
all indebtedness and is now safe. 

The residence served both as a home for the teachers and as a school- 
house. Ine building was not suitable for school purposes, yet it was 
the best that we could do under the circumstances, and the loss means 
a great deal to us. 

I left Littleton on the morning of the 2otli of January, after the 
regular morning service at the school, and everything was in good 
shape. I took a woman to St. Agnes' Hospital for an operation, hoping 
to return that night. The train was late and I did not reach Littleton 
until 8 a. m. the next day. As I stepped from the cars the first man 
whom I met said: "I have sad news for you: the Mission School is in 
ashes, but no lives lost." Having my three youngest children — one boy 



Diocese of North Carolina, 1906. 133 

and two little girls — over there with the teachers, I hurried over, to 
find where the building stood yesterday only a bed of hot, burning 
embers, but thei teachers and children were safe, having had a very 
narrow escape and losing everything they possessed. 

Mrs. Enuna Louise Hogan fled from the burning building with my 
two little girls, and to her I owe a debt of gratitude that can never 
be paid. When I stood by that ash heap and remembered that in those 
ashes lay 1,200 or more books, the accumulation of twenty-five years, 
and my dearest and best companions, with whom I at times could steal 
away from the outside w^orld and all its annoyances and hold the closest 
communion, I leave you to imagine my feelings. Among them were 
two valuable scrap-books containing a full account of all my efforts 
in connection with the Church for the last twenty-five years, and never 
to be recovered. Even imagination is too feeble to give expression to 
my feelings. And yet, when I knew that the children and teachers were 
safe, I could but cry: "Te Deum Laudamus." We lost only one day in 
our work — that Friday. The school was opened on Monday in the 
chapel and was carried on without break from that day to the end of 
the session. The children and teachers were made comfortable imme- 
diately, and in a few days friends from New York, Philadelphia, Wash- 
ington, South Carolina and Massachusetts sent us aid in money, cloth- 
ing and Prayer Books and Hymnals. Two friends sent us parts of 
libraries. St. Mark's Church, Charleston, my old parish before I came 
to the Archdeaconry, was among the first to send a contribution. Mr. 
H. E. Pellew, a friend of long standing, was the very first. My losses 
were great, but need not further be mentioned. 

There was an insurance on the home of $600. I will not be satisfied 
until our home and school-house shall be restored and we shall again 
be equipped for the work, and to do that we must depend on the friends 
in and out of the Diocese. 

Wilson. — The Rev. Robert N. Perry has been put in charge of St. 
Mark's Chapel, Wilson, and by the earnest manner and the energy 
shown, and the general interest and advancement made among the peo- 
ple in such a short time, gives promise of great success in the work 
there. He has had a large school, under great disadvantages, and 
progress has been made on every hand. For the successful prosecution 
of our work in this place we need a school building, which can be 
erected for $400. 

Noise. — After several years, with only occasional visits from the 
Archdeacon, we have been able to secure the services of a competent 
man and his wife for St. Philip's, Xoise, Moore County, and they have 
already gathered into the Sunday and day schools a number of children 
formerly baptized, and others, and the mission shows evidences of re- 
newed life and activity in this field, "white to the harvest." 

Warrenton. — The Mission School has been in better condition this year 
than at any previous time in its history, and the earnest and faithful 
teacher has been able to do a good work in the midst of great opposi- 



134 Report of Archdeacons. 

tion, brought about by a misunderstanding on the part of some persons 
of the management of the Mission Schools. 

St. Luke's, Warren County. — The Archdeacon was called by telephone 
message on the second Sunday of March to attend the burial service of 
John Henry Russell, who died suddenly on Saturday morning, March 
10th, without previous illness. He was all day Friday as usual; 
came home, ate his supper, played with his children and then went to 
bed, never to wake again in this world. He was a strong believer in 
his Church, devoted to his wife and children, and had witnessed with 
great comfort and satisfaction the confirmation of his two eldest boys. 
He leaves a wife and seven children. 

In conclusion, permit me, through you and by this means, to return 
unfeigned thanks for all the expressions of sympathy in the time of 
need and the outpouring of means to aid us in our work, and the many 
gracious words of encouragement from friends within and without the 
Diocese, and, above all, to Him "in whom we live and move and have 
our being," the great "Shepherd and Bishop of our souls." 

Respectfully submitted. J. H. M. Pollaed, 

Archdeacon.

136 Report of Hospitals. 

THIRTIETH ANNUAL EEPORT OF ST. PETER'S HOSPITAL, 
CHARLOTTE, N. C, FOR THE YEAR 1905. 

St. Peter's Hospital has cared for more patients than in any previous 
year. Many applicants have had to be refused admission for want of 
room, and the necessity of an addition to the building has been fully 
demonstrated. 

The institution is out of debt, its resources meeting its expenses, but 
leaving nothing for building. Some improvements have been made this 
year and some new work undertaken. A great addition to the charity 
work is the district nursing. The Hospital supports the nurse and 
pays all expenses except medicines, which are furnished by the city. 
The nurses have paid, from February 1st to December 31st, 1905, 1,043 
visits to 140 patients. So the work is still advancing and doing the 
charity for which the Hospital was first established. 

In November the nianagers were notified that Dr. Giles McAden had 
left a bequest to St. Peter's of ten shares of mill stock, to be known 
as the "Mary Terry McAden Fund," in memory of his mother. This was 
most gratefully received and will form the beginning of a much-needed 
endowment. 

The deaths were noticeably few this year — only one in twenty cases. 
The treatment of patients, who come daily for slight cases, is greatly 
increased. 

Patients carried over from 1904 13 

Patients admitted in 1905 303—316 

Males 136, females 180. 

Total number of days' treatment in Hospital 5,568 

Paying patients 254 

Charity patients (for 1,128 days) 61 

City cases ( for 235 days ) 15 

Deaths 16; births 5.

The work has gone steadily on during 1905. The colored people show 
more appreciation of the benefits of the Hospital and pay more for the 
care they receive. 
Forty-one patients were paid for by employers at the rate of 

$1 per day for 648 days $648.00 

Forty-seven patients paid for themselves for 670 days 283.00 

Making a total of $931.00 

Sixty five patients paid nothing for 747 days' care. 



138 Report of Auxiliaries. 

These figures show why the Grood Samaritan Hospital must always 
depend largely on the kind help of its friends that this work of charity 
may continue. 

A number of boxes were received from Branches of the Woman's Aux- 
iliary, which are very helpful. 

During the year we have been able to insure the building and furni- 
ture, which is a great satsfaction. We have also installed a first-class 
operating table and have paid all the expenses. 

A new undertaking is the training of two pupil nurses, which will 
do good to others as well as to the Hospital. The class will be increased 
when found necessary. 

Generous donations of food were received on Thanksgiving Day from 
St. ^Michael's Parish School and the Colored Public School, and St. 
Augustine's School always remembers the Good Samaritan. 

Drs. C. M. Strong and James P. Alexander had charge of the Hospital 
during the year, and have aided largely in establishing the reputation of 
the institution. 

Respectfully submitted. Mrs. John Wilkes, 

President Board of Managers. 



TWEXTY-FOURTH ANNUAL REPORT OF THE NORTH CAROLINA 
BRANCH OF THE WOIMAN'S AUXILIARY TO THE BOARD OF 
MISSIONS. 

Rt. Rev. Father in God: — Since our annual report was made at the 
last Convention, several changes have taken place in our Diocesan 
Branch. Mrs, John Wilkes, the honored President of former years, has 
been appointed permanent President, and Miss Mattie Bailey, Vice- 
President. The old title of Convocational Secretary has been revived, 
Mrs. Lewis and Mrs. Winston holding the office in the Convocation of 
Raleigh, and Mrs. Bennett and Mrs. Van Landingham in the Convoca- 
tion of Charlotte. The same change has also taken place in the Junior 
Branches, Mrs. Rawlings being Secretary of the Juniors in the Convo- 
cation of Raleigh, and Mrs. Bland in the Convocation of Charlotte; 
Mrs. Spruill, Secretary of the Babies' Branch in the Convocation of 
Raleigh, and Mrs. Walter Smith in the Convocation of Charlotte. 

You have thought it best that the Colored work be a separate organi- 
zation, with its own officers. By this change we have lost not only in 
members, but by the help given heretofore by Mrs. Hunter, of St. Augus- 
tine's, one of our Diocesan officers. We have not lost our interest in the 
work, however, and trust that this change may greatly increase the 
strength and usefulness of the Colored Branch in our Diocese. 

Notwithstanding the loss, our old branches have grown steadily and 
three new branches have been added. The Secretary has spent some time 
during the year visiting the branches in the two Convocations, and 
several of these which made no report last year were found to be in 
good working order. In nearly every branch there has been some en- 



Diocese of North Carolina, 1906. 139 

couragement, and in many a noted increase in numbers, gifts and 
interest. 

We have endeavored especially to emphasize this year the needs of 
our own Diocese, and the arduous work our Bishop and missionaries are 
doing with comparatively little help from appropriations and less from 
our own people. We believe that this help will come when we realize 
the great work already done and the greater work waiting to be done. 
A deep interest has already been manifested, as shown in an increase 
of gifts, in money to the Bishop, in specials to some of our Diocesan mis- 
sionaries, and in church furniture and boxes sent to the missionary 
fields. 

The interest of the various branches in the study of Missions has 
been great, and the observance of the days of prayer for Missions 
almost universal. The outlook is hopeful, and our progress has been 
steady; and yet, so long as there lies work around us waiting to be 
done, we cannot be satisfied. It is rather a note of dissatisfaction we 
would strike. If our neighbor — at home or abroad — is in need of us, 
our duty is not done until we help him. And every one of us can help 
him — some of us by going to him in person; more of us by our gifts to 
him, and all of us by our prayers for him. 

We may ask the question. Am I my brothers keeper? And the 
answer may come back from the Master: Ye shall not see My face 
except your hrother be with you.
