28 Fifty Fifth Session North Carolina Conference' 

V. REPORTS 



REPORTS OF DISTRICT SUPERINTENDENTS 

GREENSBORO DISTRICT. 

Dear Bishop and Brethren: — I am very thankful to our Heaven- 
ly Father to be here today in His holy presence; and that am thus 
able to make this my fifth annual report of this the Greensboro 
District. 

Many have been our joys and sorrows since we met last, but 
nevertheless we can by the eye of faith see the path that was 
marked by the footprints of our blessed Master; for he went by the 
way that we are striving to go into the great beyond, and He is 
there waiting for His servants to follow Him to the Great Gener- 
al Conference of all nations, tribes and tongues, where there will 
be no more parting but remaining for evermore with Him. 

I am sure that the Heavenly Father is more real to some of us 
than he used to be for many are getting into a closer relation with 
•Him than heretofore. 

Many souls have been convicted, converted, sanctified and es- 
tablished in faith. And this in all things is the thing that should 
concern us most; we should preach, teach and live the new life, so 
that the people coming to us into our great church with the same 
forces that we have, will be "towers of strength" with us. "The 
more who come in with a free good will, make the band go sweeter 
still. ' ' Yes, the people who know the Lord in regeneration are 
the ones that are causing others to come to the Light of Life. 

This is the class that is needed in the churches; people who are 
filled with zeal for the cause of Christ, and who know that He 
leads the army; and who at the same time are willing to follow 
Him without complaint. 

This district has twenty-four charges, a gain of one; and fifty- 
one churches, a gain of one, with five other places of worship 
where we have no churches as yet. "We have on tfiis district fifty- 
six Sunday schools, a gain of two, with more than 800 officers and 
teachers, and more than 3,000 scholars; there are 27 Epworth 
League Chapters on this district which speaks very well for the 
league work, but it is not what it should be on this district, for the 



Fifty Fifth Session North Carolina Conference 29 

number of chapters should be greater and the number of members 
should be doubled. 

We need a great many things on this district, but the one great 
thing that we need is a true spirit of service for the Master along 
all lines, and with this success is ours; we are working and praying 
for more true servants of the King in His vineyard, who are quali- 
fied both as ministers and laymen to do the great work that must 
be done if we would win the world for Christ. 

This district has in all a little more than 4,000 members; the 
growth has been marked, but not as much as it should have been, 
as you will see from tabulation below. 

I am sure that we all will hail the day when our membership will 
be doubled, yea, more than doubled. 

This has been a real strenuous year with pastors and members 
of the several charges, for I am sure that we know more about the 
work now than we have ever known before. 

I am sure too that our resident Bishop Henderson is doing all 
that the law requires him to do to keep all of us well informed as 
to our duty along these lines. 

I am striving to have pastors and people to work in harmony 
together, so that the plan of lifting up humanity may be railized in 
its fullness and that the work of the Lord may prosper in our hands. 

I am sure that I have urged pastors and people to raise the 
benevolences and pay off all debts, and in a measure this has been 
done. 

The District Conferences were held at Norfolk, Va., and Reids- 
ville, N. C. In Norfolk in May and Eeidsville in July. I am thankful 
to say to you here that at both places the meetings were good and 
I think that great good has been done to our cause at those gath- 
erings. At Norfolk we had but a few of our visiting brethren, but 
I am sure that those who did go are not sorry for having gone. 

The Eev. R. W. Winchester, of the Winston District was with us 
and rendered great service, which service will be long remembered 
by friends and members of our great church in Norfolk; with 
others of the members of this part of the district were at this 
conference also and did great work. 

I know that our Methodism in Tidewater, Va., is in a much 
better condition now than it has ever been since it came to this 
conference. 

In July, District Conference No. 1 met in Eeidsville, N. C. 
There we had many visitors, among them were the Revs. Drs. R. E. 
Jones, I. L. Thomas, I. G. Penn, District Superintendents W. R. 
Zeigler and A. H. Newsome; also we had Prof. J. E. Wallace, the 
new president of Bennett College. 



30 Fifty Fifth Session North Carolina Conference 

Dr. S. A. Peeler, a member of this district, (I think deserves 
special mention) rendered to me I think the best service that I 
have known of him; both as to a great speech and as a sermon on 
the Sabbath. 

The Commission on Finance was looked after by Dr. Thomas. 
1 am sure that Dr. Thomas was in his place on this subject, for 
T know that the brethren know now how to divide the money that 
they have collected for the different causes. 

On Thursday afternoon of the district conference was given to 
the W. H. M. S., and I am sure that they rendered a very instructive 
programme, for 1 think that all of the brethren were well pleased 
with same. 

I must mention here our great organ the Southwestern Christian 
Advocate. I am sure that this is a great paper for our members, and 
1 am sure also that if our members would do the right thing that 
the paper would be in almost all of our homes. 

You may say what you please, but we must bring things to 
pass if we ever plan to go up higher. "He that is faithful in 
that which is least is faithful also in much." So you see that if 
we would get the bigger things we must look well after the smaller; 
brethren, let's give to the Southwestern " A Square Deal." 

Every officer in our church should take the Southwestern, for 
if we read the paper we will then be in a position to know our 
duty better; and at the same time be in a position to defend 
our church. 

EDUCATION. 

The educational condition among us is not all that it should 
be, but I think that it is holding its own. Here within the bounds 
of our conference are Bennett College, the Kent Home and the 
Allen Industrial Home; these institutions are for the intellectual, 
moral and spiritual training of our youths. 

I am sure that we saw great signs for Bennett at the last 
annual conference, for our men with the help of our bishop here 
rolled up no small amount for that institution; I am sure that we 
thought that things were in a much better condition than they 
had been, indeed, we know that they were, for it seemed that the 
most of the men were giving their loyal support to the administra- 
tion of Dr. Peeler, but sometime this conference year the Board 
at Cincinnati saw some reason for not continuing Dr. Peeler at the 
head of this institution, so he has been replaced by Prof. J. E. 
Wallace. But I am certain that there has been a great deal of im- 
provement, both as to the buildings and the campus also, for the 



Fifty Fifth Session North Carolina Conference 31 

last few months; the school is I hope on the upward to success, for 
if things keep on as they are now I am sure that we are going to 
have great results. I hope that this great conference will do all 
that it can for Bennett. 

KENT HOME. 

Mrs. Donaldson, superintendent, with Misses Bugbee and Bell 
as her assistants, we believe that they will do thier very best for 
the work that is theirs, and I hope that the girls who are so for- 
tunate to be in the Home will do their best to get the training 
that is much needed among us for the rural homes, for if we 
save the homes we save the nation. 

ALLEN INDUSTBIAL HOME. 

Miss A. B. Dole, sueprintendent. For years Miss Dole has been 
at the head of this institution, and with her helpers, both as to 
teachers and friends, I say that much good has been accomplished 
for the training of our girls, for when the women ot any race are 
reached for good then the race is elevated; for the salvation of 
the race lies more with the women of the race. 

I am sure that we' should all fall in line with all of these in- 
stitutions within the bounds of this great conference, and give 
them our loyal support — Bennett, Kent Home and Allen Indus- 
trial Home. 

TEMPEEANCE. 

We feel proud for the stand that our great church has taken 
on the whiskey question. I thank God that as a church we are 
enemies to the accursed stuff. I am sure that I voice the senti- 
ment of most good men when I say that I hope that all denomina- 
tions will soon fall in line with our great church and wage war 
with Demon Bum until he has been outlawed by this great nation. 

It was Abraham Lincoln who had the manhood and the fear- 
lessness with the church at his back and the God of war leading, to 
emancipate the slaves. Who will be the statesman that with the 
strength of the church will have the grit to deal the crushing 
blow to the Demon Bumf God haste the day. 

SUMMABY. 

Central Bandolph — E. H. McArthur, pastor. He has wrought 
well; he holds his own and his people see that he is one man who 



32 Fifty Fifth Session North Carolina Conference 

loves the cause and also is on the job. He raises the benevolent 
moneys, and is doing a good work for the church and the Master. 

Danville, Va. — A. S. Green. I think that our few members 
at this place do not appreciate that our church has been doing for 
them, nor do they, I fear, appreciate the loyal support and service 
that Brother Green is giving to them, for if they did 1 think that 
we would have greater rt jults than we now have. I think that 
Brother Green has done about his best. 

Durham and Henderson — J. H. Sneed was, but left and I have 
secured the services of Bro. W. T. Craven t.o finish the year 's 
work on part on this charge, while Brother Leonard looked after 
Henderson which is near to his charge. In all I think the work 
has done well as could have been expected under the circumstances. 
Empire — L. D. McQueen, pastor. Brother McQueen has done 
a real good year's work on this charge, for he holds his own and 
i am thankful to say that many members have been added to this 
charge this year. Brother McQueen is a good man and does good 
work; the people love him and work with him. * . 

Greensboro, East — M. C. Laughlin, pastor. Brother Laughlin 
has done a good work here; has been now on this charge for seven 
years. I am sure that that speaks well for him. Many members 
have been added to the church since he came to this field; the two 
new churches at Sedalia and at Mt. Zion stand as monuments to 
his untiring labors. 

Greensboro, High Street and Bass — J. A. Laughlin, pastor. He 
has done a very good work on this charge, for now we have at High 
Street a beautiful church which has been rebuilt, and is as good as 
new. I am not in a position to know about the money that has 
been raised this year for this church, but this I know that it has 
been a great deal. At this rate we will soon have a good many 
good churches on this district. 

Greensboro, Northwest — G. W. Byers, pastor. Brother Byers 
has had it tough this year. His wife has been sick all of this year; 
indeed she has been and is a very sick woman. Then he has been 
sick himself for a long time this year, yet his work has been kept 
up by Brother Spaulding and others. Notwithstanding all of this 
he rolls up a good report. Brother Byers knows how to work his 
people. 

At Ealeigh a new addition has been added to the church, 
and at Collins three acres of land have been bought for that 
church. The charge is in a very good condition. 

Greensboro, St. Matthews — E. T. Weatherby, pastor. Last 
fall he was transferred to this charge by Bishop Henderson to 
take charge of this church and I must say that he has filled the 



Fifty Fifth Session North Carolina Conference 33 

bill. Much good has been done in the uplift of the cause of Christ; 
many souls have been added to the church, the finance is in a much 
better condition now than it was, and in all I think that the charge 
has taken a new life. We thank God for what has beer done here, 
and I think that both the Bishop and Brother Weatherby come 
in for a good share. 

Greensboro, South — W. T. Lomax, pastor. Brother Lomax was 
sick last fall when he was assigned to this work; indeed he was ex- 
ceedingly sick and for more than four months was not in a position 
to do any work at all; the Eev. M. J. Bullock took charge of the 
work until Brother Lomax was so that he could do it himself. By 
Brother Bullock looking after the work it was kept in good shape. 
So Brother Lomax is now himself again and I am sure that South 
Greensboro has had a good year, for many souls have been converted 
and added to the chur,ch. 

Greensboro, Southwest — A. W. McMaster, pastor. Brother Mc- 
M aster came to this work last fall following the Eev. M. J. Bullock. 
Brother McMaster as a whole 1 think has done a very good year's 
work on this charge; the people have fallen in line with him and 
the result is good. The charge in some measure is taking on new life 
and bids well for even greater work in the future. 

Jackson — J. H. Garrett, pastor. It seems that the people at 
this place think that Brother Garrett ought to have a perpetual 
deed to this charge, for it seems that they want no other man to 
be their pastor. More real work has been done on this charge 
this year than has been done for any year that I have known 
it. God is blessing both pastor and people. 

Leaksville — P. J. Cook, pastor. Brother Cook has been here 
on this charge for three years; he is a good loyal Methodist. He 
has wrought well. His salary was paid up on last Sunday in July. 
Indeed Leaksville is a great charge with some great people and a 
loyal membership. A goodly number has been added to the church. 

Norfolk and Newport News, Va. — C. I. Withrow, pastor. It 
was here that District Conference No. 2 was held during the month 
of May; and I am sure that our church work stands in a much bet- 
ter condition now than it has ever before stook in Norfolk; indeed 
the people in Tidewater, Va., are very anxious for the gospel, and 
they come to our church to hear it. Brother Withrow is doing 
a good work here at Norfolk and Newport News; new pews have 
been installed in our church at Norfolk; and Newport News a 
great revival and many souls added to the church; in Norfolk 
we need a church building commensurate with the city. 

Norfolk Mission — Brother Henderson, pastor. This is a new 
charge that came to, us dv-ing the month of August. He came to us 



34 Fifty Fifth Session North Carolina Conference 

and brought all of his little flock now numbering twenty-seven. 
I am sure that the work is in a good condition to grow, and to help 
to give us the needed standing in Tidewater, Va. that we should 
have. 

West Ealeigh — J. C. Bobbins, pastor. Brother Bobbins has now 
been on this field how for four years. A record breaker both for 
himself and also the church which he serves. There has been a 
good deal of real work here wrought by pastor and people ; the 
church is in one of the best conditions that I have known it to 
be j indeed, with this new church with things working in harmony 
I am sure that this is a great place for a real worker for the Master. 

Oxford — A. G. Jenkins, pastor. Oxford has had a new birth 
with this man of God as the pastor of this people. Indeed, Oxford 
is doing more for Brother Jenkins and he is doing more for Oxford 
than has been done heretofore. He is loved it seems by all de- 
nominations. He is a real pastor; visits the sick and afflicted; 
gives to them due instruction; prays the blessings of heaven upon 
them and leads the life of the servant of the King. 

Bleasant Bidge, Va. — J. B. MeNair. pastor. This work under 
the pastorate of Brother MeNair is rapidly coming to the front. 
He has put himself into this work and I am sure that we can 
see the results. The people of all classes love hiim; members of 
other churches are at work with him. He has made a name in 
Bleasant Bidge. If more of the men put themselves into this 
work as this young man has done, I am sure that we would have 
greater results, and our membership would be "towers of strength" 
everywhere. 

Portsmouth, Va. — O. J. Bethea, pastor. Brother Bethea I think 
under the cirumstances has wrought well; he holds his own with a 
few additions to this little mission here. What we need in Borts- 
mouth is a church. 

BaAseur — L. G. McDonald, pastor. Brother McDonald came 
to this work last fall, and has taken hold of it. I think that under 
the circumstances he has done very well. The real leaders of 
the church have taken hold with him and thereby have worked to- 
gether so that there has not been much of a backset to this work. 
I think now that it is in good cndition. 

Beidsville — J. W. Davis, pastor. This is a new field for Brother 
Davis, who came to us last fall. He has striven hard to do a great 
year 's work, and has done very well. I am sure that he has had 
great hopes to see this work second to none, but all of his desires 
have not been realized in this field. I am sure that we all wanted 
greater results j some converts and some accessions, 



Fifty Fifth Session North Carolina Conference 35 

Beidsville Circuit — J. W. Jones, pastor. He came to this charge 
last fall and it seems that he came in the fire of confusion.. Broth- 
er Jones had an uphill pull almost all of the way, but the clouds 
Feemed to have rolled by in a measure, and there seems to be a calm. 
1 am sure that we have been disappointed on this charge, for the 
work ought to be one of our best for all purposes, but there is a 
great falling off along -nost alllines. 

Townsville, Bullock and Clarksville — A. B. Leonard, pastor. 
Brother Leonard has wrought well on this charge. The church 
at Bullock has been furnished with nice new pews, and a good little 
church built at Clarksville, a place where some thought we would 
never get one. I was surprised when I beheld that new church 
not so long ago. I am sure that pastor and people should congratu- 
late themselves on what they have achieved in this place. I am 
sure that the whole charge should be congratulated. 

Wentworth — B. F. Thomas, pastor. This charge with its pastor 
has had it hard this year. There have been much sickness and 
death, besides sickness in the pastor's family. The charge is not 
what it should be. There is a falling off this year, and I hope that 
it will take on new life. We look for success ahead. 

Burlington — J. M. Aldridge. I am sure that Brother Aldridge 
should be praised fr r the work he - as done hede at this place. He 
has taken the responsibility of renting and furnishing a house ol 
worship, and has gone to his appointment regularly and has done 
a thousand and on< things I suppose and has in all done very well. 
T am sure that he is made up of the stuff that goes to make a real 
Methodist preacher. This is the kind that we need who will go 
out and turn up some work. 

Yeurs for the coming of the King, 

SAMUEL F. B. PEACE 

WESTERN DISTRICT. 

Dear Bishop, Fathers and Brethren: — In presenting this, my 
first Annual Beport of the Western District, I would express my 
sincere gratitude to Almighty God for His innumerable blessings, 
and my appreciation to pastors and people for their uniform and 
cordial reception, support and kindly co-operation through this 
year of blessed fellowship and service. 

At the last session oi the North Carolina Conference, I was ap- 
pointed to succeed the Rev. H. L. Ashe, on this district. A district 
covering a large stretch of territory, comprehending practically 
the entire western half of the state. I found the district in first 
class condition. Words fail me if I should attempt to express what 



36 Fifty Fifth Session North Carolina Conference 

is due my predecessor, friend and brother, the Rev. H. L. Ashe. 
Too much cannot be said in praise of this worthy man. Every de- 
tail of the work gave evidence that a master hand had been on 
the field. 

We took up the work where he left off last October. We were 
cordially received by pastors and laymen. With their co-operation 
and grjacious favor of Almighty God, the work of the district has 
moved on throughout the year without a jar. 

We have visited every charge on the district. All of our quar- 
terly conferences have been well attended, and in each one of them 
keen interest has been manifested in the movements of our great 
church. 

God has been good to us in that He has preserved the lives of 
our pastors, and their families, and thus being sheltered from dis- 
ease, desolation, famine and death, they have all been able to pur- 
sue their labors with increasing energy, unswerving faithfulness 
and holy zeal. These courageous pastors, in whom is both faith 
and spirit of the fathers, have gone forth under the inspiration of 
the great commission to serve their church and their God. making 
many personal sacrifices, often in need of the ordinary comforts 
of life, in labors, abundant, in perils, in weariness, in hunger, re- 
joicing, however, because they are the ministers of the Christ, and 
that they prove themselves worthy of the high calling into which 
they have entered, and for which they have consecrated their lives. 

I find that there has been a slight increase in the pastors' salar- 
ies on the district, but the general average is entirely too inade- 
quate to meet the demands of an ever increasing and ascending 
scale in the cost of living. And our laymen will not do their full 
duty until they see to it that each minister receives comfortable 
support. This can be largely realized by the officials co-operating 
with the pastors in carrying out the Disciplinary recommendation 
for systematic giving; and thus relieved from unnecessary worry, 
they may be free to give all the energy of their minds and hearts 
to their work. 

I have urged the raising of all the Benevolences, and the pastors 
have presented all the claims of the church, and have done their 
best to collect their apportionments. 

We have given much attention to our Sunday Schools. The 
Sunday School offers the best opportunity that we know for soul 
culture, and for bringing our young people into the Kingdom. The 
work of the Sunday School has been placed before our Quarterly 
Conferences repeatedly; and the thorough grading of the schools, 
and use of the literature published by our church nave been con- 
stantly urged, 



Fifty Fifth Session North Carolina Conference 37 

We have a number of Epworth League Chapters on the dis- 
trict. They are doing good work among the young people in Chris- 
tian service, in missionary activity and in charity. 

Our Epworth League and Sunday School Convention was held 
at Forest City, May 22-25. It was well attended, and was an inspir- 
ation to all who were present. Papers touching upon the home life 
and the church life of our people were read. Strong and eloquent 
addresses were delivered by members of the convention. 

The District Conference was held at Gastonia, July 22-27. It is 
said that the conference was the largest and best in the history of 
the district. It was indeed a remarkable meeting. We were fav- 
ored with the presence of several of our general officers, each of 
whom delivered illuminating addresses touching every phase of 
our chuch life. There were present our own Dr. K. E. Jones, who 
is an ever welcome visitor to this, his home conference; Drs. I. L. 
Thomas and I. Garland Penn, representing the commission on fi- 
nance, and the jubilee movement. There were present also Prof. 
J. E. Wallace, the new president of Bennett College, and Dr. S. 
A. Peeler, our much loved retiring president. These brethren 
added much to the success of the conference by their presence and 
by their strong and eloquent addresses. 

EDUCATION. 

We have advocated the cause of education. The public school 
advantages on our district, for, the education of our people, are ex- 
ceedingly poor. The school terms are too short and the salaries 
too small to secure efficient teachers to teach the schools in the 
country districts. In some sections, however, our people are be- 
ginning to realize the supreme importance of education, and are 
raising money to suppliment the public fund, and thus give their 
children a longer school term. 

Allen Home, one of the schools of the Woman's Home Mission- 
ary Society, under the very capable management of Miss Alsie B. 
Dole, is on our District, and is doing a great work. The insti- 
tution is better prepared than ever to carry on its important work. 
We have made repeated visits to the school, and have been pro- 
foundly impressed with the character of the work being done. 

The students and teachers are happy and earnest in their work. 
There is about the school an atmosphere of devoted love for Jesus 
Christ. The school deserves, and should have the loyal support 
of the members of this conference, and of our people throughout 
the state. 

On the thirteenth of August, I met with a painful accident, in- 



38 Fifty Fifth Session North Carolina Conference 

volving the dislocation of my wrist and the fracture of one 
of the bones of my arm. This disabled me for work for several 
weeks, but the Lord was with me, and my brethren stood by me, 
so the work was not allowed to suffer. 

SUMMAEY. 

Asheville — C. K. Brown, pastor. This charge under the leader- 
ship of Brother Brown has made marked improvements. The 
church has been newly covered with metallic shingles, beautified 
on the interior, furnished with a nice pulpit set and a new altar. 
The pastor has done a splendid year's work and the charge is in 
good condition. 

Black Mountain — S. B. Cornelius, pastor. Nothing has been 
done at this point; we have neither church nor membership. It 
does seem though that something could be done if proper care 
were given to the work. 

Boone — J. A. Baxter, pastor. This charge is situated far back 
in the mountains of western North Carolina. Brother Baxter went 
to this work about the first of June. The charge has greatly pros- 
pered; the church has been repaired and some improvement made 
on the church lot. The pastor's report will show that forty-one 
dollars have been raised for benevolence which is thirteen dollars 
more than the amount asked for this conference year. This young 
man graduatd from Gammon last spring, coming to us he has 
proven himself to be the man of the hour. May the Lord send 
more such young men in the field. 

Forest City — W. M. Crawford, pastor. This brother has been 
faithful and worked hard for success which can be seen along all 
lines. The church at Well Springs has been repaired to the amount 
of three hundred dollars or more, and everything seems to be doing 
well. A tpjendid year's work has been done on the charge. 

Gastonia — N. M. Black, pastor. Dr. J. D. Chavis was appointed 
to this charge, but was transferred to the Tennessee Conference, 
and Brother Black of the East Tennessee Conference was trans- 
ferred to the North Carolina Conference and appointed to the 
Gastonia charge. This brother has done a splendid year's work. 
The charge has never been in better condition than now. The con- 
gregation has been greatly increased. 

Franklin — C. L. Stewart, pastor. This is another of those 
charges situated in the mountain section. Brother Stewart has 
done well on this charge. The church at Franklin has been partly 
ceiled and other work done on the church. The congregation and 
membership have been increased. 



Fifty Fifth Session North Carolina Conference 39 

Hendersonville. We have a few members at this point, but no 
church building The outlook is good for our church. Our greatest 
need is a little money to put a man on the field. 

Hickory — E. I. S. Swann, pastor. This charge has moved from 
a long felt need to a realization in the erection of a six-room par- 
sonage. The Ladies Aid Society raised the money and Brother 
Sv,<t>jm, the pastor and carpenter, did the work. Hickory has one 
of the best parsonages on the district. The pastor comes to con- 
ference with this charge second to none. Brother Swann is a hard 
worker and brings things to pass. 

Jefferson — L. W. Thomas, pastor. This is one of those moun- 
tain charges where it seems that little can be done. The pastor 
has worked hard and done the best he could with the small salary 
he has received. 

Jonesville — S. P. West, pastor. At Jonesville the new church 
has been enclosed. This is a beautiful little church which shows 
the pastor and membership have caught the progressive spirit. At 
Elkin they paid two hundred and fifty-six dollars on the old debt 
that was against the church and parsonage leaving a balance due 
of eighty dollars. Brother West with the aid of his people has done 
a fine year's work. 

Lenoir and Warrior Gap — E. D. Bethea, pastor. The pastor and 
people of this charge need to be commended for their loyalty to 
Christ and His church. The church at Lenoir is now clear of debt. 
The last dollar was reported paid at the Fourth Quarterly Confer- 
ence at which time the notes and mortgage were burned. Brother 
Bethea led his people to success this year. 

Lenoir Circuit — B. C. Littlejohn, pastor. Brother J. H. Mor- 
rison was sent to this charge at the last conference. He made one 
visit and then gave up the work. It was about the last of April I 
secured Brother Littlejohn for this work. This brother has worked 
and done well. At Mulberry they have built a neat little church in 
which we held the fourth Quarterly Conference. At Harpertown 
they have seated the church and done some other improvements. 

Lincolnton Circuit — B. L. Burge, pastor. This charge is in 
good condition. The congregation has been increased. The debt 
on the church at Cherryville has been reduced. Brother Burge is 
a splendid young man. 

Lowesville — G. F. Hill, pastor. We are sorry to state that the 
church r»t this place was destroyed by fire on the twenty-second 
day of May, without one penny of insurance. For this reason the 
work will fall short this year. They are planning to rebuild and 



40 Fifty Fifth Session North Carolina Conference 

have some of the material on the ground. The pastor has done the 
best he could under the circumstances. 

Machpelah — D. C. Skeen, pastor. The pastor has worked faith- 
fully to bring this charge up to a higher standard. He has suc- 
ceeded well and leaves the work in a splendid condition. 

Marion and Old Fort — W. O. Thomas, pastor. This charge is 
doing splendidly under the leadership of Brother Thomas. The 
church at the Glades has been ceiled and some other improvements 
made. The work is in splendid condition. 

Mayhew — X. S. T. Shamborguer, pastor. This brother has 
proven himself to be the man for the place by the marked im- 
provements made on this charge. At Morrow's Chapel they are 
raising money for a new church. At Mt. Morn the church has 
been ceiled and at Cornelius a new church has been enclosed. 
They have also made some improvements on the parsonage. 

Newton — J. J. Blanton, pastor. This pastor and people have 
succeeded nicely. The debt at Newton has been paid in full. So 
they are now ready for work along other lines. 

Owentown and Brackettown — A. M. Robertson, pastor. This 
being Brother Robertson's first year he has succeeded well and 
needs to be commended. Under his leadership the work has pros- 
pered and is in splendid condition. The debt on the church at 
Owentown has been reduced. 

Sherrill's Ford — P. F. Johnson, pastor. Brother Johnson has 
made this the best year of his life. The charge will report more 
benevolent money raised than in any previous year. This charge 
has already declared an increase on pastor 's salary of fifty dollars 
for next year. The work is in splendid shape. 

Shelby and Lawndale — R. B. Rhyne, pastor. This charge has 
been brought up to the high water mark. Fifty-nine souls were 
brought into the fold of Christ in one revival. Never before has 
this charge been in better condition than at this time. Brother 
Rhyne is a splendid pastor. 

Stanley and Kings Mountain — J. C. Addie, pastor. This broth- 
er has been faithful and has worked hard. At Kings Mountain 
the interior of the church has been completed. The work has 
been improved this year. 

Statesville — H. O. Frederick, pastor. This charge has not made 
the progress it should have, though the pastor has been faithful 
and done the best he could to make success. There has been some 
improvement made on the Philadelphia church. 

West Asheville — G. Haven Caldwell, pastor. Brother Caldwell 
is a faithful young man and has succeeded well. Some improve- 



Fifty -Fifth Session North Carolina Conference 41 

ments have been made on the church at Beaver Dam. He leaves 
the charge in splendid condition. 

Wilkesboro — W. B. Scales, pastor. This charge has done well 
this year. The church at North Wilkesboro has been relieved of 
debt and is now ready to work along other lines. Brother Scales 
is one of our best pastors. 

CHUECH EECOEDS. 

I have looked after the records of the church. On some of the 
charges 1 found the records properly kept. Some were partly 
kept and some had no .record at all, which 1 have found to be 
the reason for the great loss of our membership. On some of the 
charges I have succeeded by the aid of the pastors to get new 
records and instructed the pastors and officers to keep them 
correctly. 



DEEDS OF CHUECHES AND PAESONAGES 

I have looked after the deeds of church and parsonage property 
and found the most of them to be correct. Those that are not I 
have urged the pastors and trustees to look after them. 

INSUEANCE. 

At each quarterly conference I have urged the trustees to see 
to it, that every church and parsonage on the district be insured, 
but I am sorry to say that many of them let the matter go un- 
heeded . The losi of the church at Lowesville should cau&e us all to 
be more careful about this matter. 

We have given special attention to the Southwestern. 

VISITATION. . 

I have preached in every church on the district save five, and 
he-Id all the quarterly conferences on the district save three. I 
have looked after every interest of the church that is connected 
with my district work. I have looked for places where our church 
might go and do service for the Master, and now, dear Bishop 
and brethren, I have given to the work my best service. If I 
have failed, I have tried to succeed. I have done my best. But if 
success has been attained the praise belongs to God. I now await 



42 Fifty Fifth Session North Carolina Conference 

your considerate judgment, and the approval of our Heavenly 
Father, 

Respectfully yours in Christ, 

A. H. NEWSOME, D. S. 

WILMINGTON DISTRICT. 



D".ar Bishop, Brethren, Members of the North Carolina Confer- 
ence and Friends: — I gratefully acknowledge the blessings of God 
by whose grace your humble servant has been sustained, and en- 
abled to accomplish another year's work as District Superinten- 
dent of the Wilmington District. With gratitude I acknowledge 
the kindness and co-operation of the brethren — the pastors who 
have stood ready to assist any effort for the success of the work 
of the Master. Nothing unusual has occurred on our district this 
year. With few exceptions the pastors have had chance to do 
their best year's work. As we trust that their reports will show, 
in some of the homes of the pastors the hand of affliction has rested 
for a season, but none were sick unto death. 

Brother A. Clark who for two years on account of failing health 
was granted superannuated relation to the Conference died at 
Greensboro June 16, 1913. Brother Clark lived in Monroe for the 
past four years. He wanted to go home to his people and we man- 
aged to get him there before he died. He leaves four children, two 
of them to be cared for by the conference. Brother Clark was pa- 
tient and resigned. We believe he died happy. 

OUR WORK AS DISTRICT SUPERINTENDENT. 

With the inspiration and advice given by our Worthy Bishop 
at the last conference a year ago, and the many changes made in our 
book of Discipline by the general conference for the more effec- 
tual service of all the people in the Kingdom of the Master. We 
have felt that to begin to. carry into operation some of these good 
things was indispensable. Hence we have tried to do our best along 
these new lines. We have urged upon our people everywhere the ne- 
cessity of inward and outward holiness, without which no man 
shall see the Lord. It is by walking in the light as he is in the 
light that we have fellowship, one with another and that we know 
that the blood of Jesus Christ His Son cleanseth from all sin. We 
rejoice that we have had the manifestation of the Spirit of God 
in mighty power in the churches by which souls have been con- 
verted, and believers edified and added to the church, so we see 



Fifty-Fifth Session North Carolina Conference 43 

that upon the altars of many hearts the melting fires of Pente- 
cost are still burning. Many of our pastors preach as with an 
Unction from above, for we believe that God speaks through them 
to the hearts of sinners convicting them of sin and showing them 
His mercy through Jesus Christ by whom we are saved. 

We have striven to impress our people with the importance of 
carrying out the plan of our Discipline for the raising of supplies 
fo^ the support of the ministry. Especially have I urged indi- 
vidual weekly or monthly contribution or the every member can- 
vass, realizing that the old plan of omnibussing the collections 
often means failure, and at best is unreliable. In studying this 
phase of our work I find many difficulties in the way of successfully 
operating the new plans. In some cases the pastors are afraid to 
present these new propositions and to urge them and carry them 
into effect, and in other cases, where the pastor is willing, the 
people are not willing to try new things, reluctant to give up their 
old customs and methods however inadequate they may be to meet 
present-day demands. 

The only remedy we see for this is proper instruction by pre- 
cept and example. To accomplish this we distribute tracts and pam- 
phlets and lecture in the quarterly conferences on the various 
phases and mehods of church work. We are satisfied that the 
Methodist Church has both the ways and means for the fulfilling 
of her godly mission on earth, her only handicap is the need of men, 
consecrated men and women to do the work that God has shown 
us to be indispensable to her final triumph over the powers of 
darkness. 

Our district was asked to raise $2,087, not including the jubilee 
fund which if raised is an average of sixty-six and two-thirds 
cents a member, a thing not impossible if the work has been done as 
we advised. Our motto has been a dollar per member which would 
be $3,000. We hope to accomplish this ere our work as District 
Superintendent on the Wilmington District is done. 

EDUCATION. 

I have inquired at every charge whether the sermon on educa- 
tion had been preached, and the collection taken, and received an 
affirmative reply. I have urged our young people who are desir- 
ing an education to attend Bennet College at Greensboro. I have 
pointed out to them the advantages there offered, many from this 
district have gone there this year. Also I have set before our 
girls the opportunities offered at Kent Home, Greensboro, and Allen 
Industrial Home at Asheville. These schools if attended will re- 



44 Fifty Fifth Session North Carolina Conference 

fine and prepare our young women for service in the uplift of the 
race. Our young men desiring to enter the ministry have been 
advised to take a course in Gammon Theological Seminary, the 
greatest training school in the world for colored ministers of the 
gospel. 

SUNDAY SCHOOLS AND INSTRUCTION OF CHILDEEN. 

We have thirty- two Sunday Schools on this district; officers and 
teachers, 227; scholars 2,627. The schools are well supplied with 
literature from our "Book Concern." I find that the pastors have 
observed the r,ules for the instruction of children by organizing 
classes and appointing leaders. I have urged the keeping of a 
cradle roll on all the charges. 

CHUECH EECOEDS. 

We have urged the correction and keeping of church records 
properly. In most of the charges this has been done, so that we 
have better records kept of the membership and businesses of the 
church. Some have made the ten per cent, gain for this conference 
year. 

EVANGELISTIC AND EEVIVAL MEETINGS. 

The pastors have striven hard this year to keep their churches 
spiritually alive, and as a result we have had great revivals at 
many of the churches. Many souls have been brought into the 
Kingdom of Jesus Christ and brought into our church. 

DISTEICT CONVENTIONS. 

A pastors and laymens convention was held at Hamlet in March, 
beginning on the fifth and continuing to the seventh. The 
object of the convention was a better and more uniform plan of 
executing the work of the church, there were but a few who at- 
tended, but those that were present expressed themselves as be- 
ing greatly benefitted. 

Our Sunday School and Epworth League Convention was held 
at Philadelphia, near Eockingham, on the Hamlet charge. There 
were many in attendance and the sessions were very inspiring 
and instructive. 

Our District Conference convened with Simpson Chapel at 
Charlotte, July 23-26. The program as suggested by the Bishop 
was carried out. All who attended were greatly helped. Drs. I. L. 



Fifty Fifth Session North Carolina Conference 45 

Thomas, I .G. Penn were the official visitors, each presented their 
cause in an effectual way. 

Dr. Thomas represented the financial plan of the church; Dr. 
Penn the Jubilee Movement, and Dr. K. E. Jones the Southwestern 
Christian Advocate. Our prominent laymen were Profs. R. B. 
McRary, J. A. McRae and J. E. Wallace, president of Bennett 
College and Prof. W. B. Windsor, all of whom took an active part 
in the work of the conference and contributed much toward mak- 
ing it an inspiration to all concerned. Dr. S. A. Peeler of the 
Greensboro District, was present and spoke to the delight of all. 
All of the pastors, except one, were present, many of the local 
preachers, Epworth League presidents, Sunday School superinten- 
dents, exhorters and others representing other phases of the church 
work were present. Our next District Conference will convene with 
Cedar Grove church, Rowland. 

EPWORTH LEAGUES. 

There are twenty-one chapters organized on the district; some 
of them are active, some are not active. At some places the 
young people show great indifference toward the league, but in 
spite of this indifference some good work is being done. ' 

SUMMARY. 

Charlotte Station — Dr. M. M. Jones, pastor. The work has gone 
steadily forward. This is Brother Jones' first year in Charlotte. 
He has worked hard and brought great things to pass. $375 im- 
provement on the parsonage, and the indebtedness of the church 
has been reducced considerably. Our membership at Charlotte is 
loyal; all of the interests of the church have been looked after. 
Dr. Jones had led his people to higher planes, both spiritually and 
temporally. 

Fayetteville and Pembroke — W. P. Hayes, supply. This mission 
gives promise of great possibilities in the future. The church at 
Pembroke has been partly ceiled, new pews have been put in. At" 
Red Bank we worship in the school house. They have good meet- 
ings all the year. Eight persons have been converted on this 
charge. Nothing has been done this year at Fayetteville. The few 
members there seem to be indifferent, so that Brother Hayes could 
accomplish but little at this place. The people desire Brother 
Hayes return. Benevolences, 24. 

Goldsboro and Newbern — J. D. Hairston,, paston Nothing 
has been done on this charge this year except at Goldsboro the 



46 Fifty Fifth Session North Carolina Conference 

church has been ceiled partly. The pastor has had sickness in his 
family nearly all of the year, therefore he could not accomplish 
much. He wishes his relation to the conference changed. We rec- 
ommend the sale of our property at Newbern and reinvestment. 
Also at Kinston we have a fine lot but no church building. Some 
disposition of this property should be made. Our greatest need 
is support for a man to look after this work. Our members are 
loyal on this charge. 

Hamlet, Philadelphia and Eockingham — S. McDonald, pastor. 
Brother McDonald has looked after this charge this year with 
great devotion and has had success. There have been good revivals. 
The benevolences of the church have been raised. The mission at 
Eockingham has been carefully attended and the indebtedness 
reduced on the lot. The church records have been revised and the 
true membership prpperly recorded. There are possibilities on 
this charge which if developed will make it the leading charge on 
this district. Hamlet is the center point for the Seaboard railroad, 
and our people are coming into this point from all parts of the 
country, hence the importance of our church work in Hamlet. 
Brother McDonald will lead in the Jubille Movement. 

Hoffman and Vass — E. L. Fletcher, supply. Brother Fletcher 
is a local preacher of not ordinary ability. He preaches accepta- 
bly and has done good work at Hoffman this year. He has held 
his people together, and has begun the building of a new church, 
having erected the frame and partly weatherboarded it. The people 
wish his return. Some benevolences will be reported by him. The 
membership is small. 

Laurinburg and Cool Springs — Dr. J. P. Morris, pastor. This 
is the leading charge on the district and Dr. Morris has proven 
to be the right man in the right place. The best report that has 
ever been made from this charge will be made. The benevolence 
has been increased 100 per cent. Brother Morris has plans laid for 
the building of a modern brick church at Laurinburg. His people 
stand loyally by him ,and we expect great things at Laurinburg. 
Mrs. Morris has been very sick and underwent a serious operation 
which very nearly cost her life, but thank God she is nearly re- 
covered and stands nobly by her husband in the work of the church. 

Lumberton and Beauty Spot — S. A. McNeill, pastor. This 
charge under the care of this splendid leader, Christian gentle- 
man and eminent scholar, has had a great uplift this year. All of 
the interests of the church have been carefully attended to, con- 
siderable increase in the benevolent collections and the net gain 
of ten per cent, in membership is reported. Good revivals at both 



Fifty Fifth Session North Carolina Conference 47 

points. The people are well pleased with this pastor and wish his 
return. This is one of the strong charges of the district. 

Johns and Beaver Dam — M. Mundy, pastor. Brother Mundy 
has worked hard this year and the report of this work is better 
than last year. Better ministerial support and more benevolence 
is reporte i from this charge this year. There have been good re- 
vival meetings and many converisons and several accessions to 
the church. The members are faithful and under proper leader- 
ship are a great factor in the extension of Christ's Kingdom. The 
Sunday Schools are in good condition and well supplied with our 
literature. 

Maxton and Piney Grove — W. M. Wjells pastoif. This is 
Brother Wells ' fourth year on this charge, and I am proud to say 
that he is stronger with his people than ever before. The work 
has prospered under his pastorate. The people are united and the 
interest of the church well guarded. The church record has been 
revised and the true membership recorded. The church at Maxton 
has been seated with circular pews, nicely carpeted and much work 
done both inside and outside, so that it now presents a pleasing 
appearance. Brother Wells is a great preacher, possessing the 
spirit of his Father. His preaching moves his audience to sympa- 
thetic responses, hence the satisfaction his sermon give to those 
whose good fortune it is to hear him. The report of this charge 
is good this year; better than last year; an increase in benevolence 
and many additions to the church membership. St. George has 
suffered this year in the death of many of her best members, promi- 
nent among whom was Rev. R. B. Streeter, one of the pioneer 
preachers of the North Carolina Conference. We should hold his 
memory very dear, for he toiled and prayed and suffered for the 
establishment of our church in the waste places when the days 
were dark. He was faithful to the end, and closed his eyes to 
sleep to await the trumpet sound. Sister Amanda Moody also a 
faithful supporter of this church could not wait for the coming 
of this conference, being stricken with paralysis, bade us good 
bye a few days ago and joined the host above. We pray that 
others may join in to fill the ranks; that this church may continue 
to hold the banner high and press the battle to the gate. This is 
the third time that the conference has met in this church, and each 
time the improvement is very evident. We predict great things 
for St. George in the future. 

M. Zion Circuit — R. Smith, pastor. This charge has held its 
own under the care of Brother Smith. Good revivals have been 
held at both churches and some additions to the membership have 
been made. A mission has been organized at Wagriim, and a frame 



48 Fifty Fifth Session North Carolina Conference 

for a church building erected. There are three Sunday Schools in 
good condition on this charge. Brother Smith preaches with great 
power and is faithful in the discharge of his duties. His people 
love him and desire his return. The report from this charge is 
good. 

Monroe and Bethel — H. Fink, pastor. This work has held its 
own this year. The membership is small and the pastor has had 
sickness in his family so that he could not do as much as he has 
wished to do. But he has proven faithful in the discharge of his 
duties as pastor, filling all of the appointments and looking after 
the interests of the charge as best he could. Nothing has been done 
at Concord and Monroe. We have a church lot at Concord, but 
no building. The Sunday School at Bethel is good and the member- 
ship faithful. 

New Zion — D. McEae, pastor. Brother McEae has succeeded 
admirably on this work this year, considering the geographical sit- 
uation. There are three points situated in three different counties 
many miles apart. But Brother McEae has attended to this work 
faithfully and although there has been sickness in his family much 
of the time, the work has not been neglected. Some change in 
the arrangement of this work is desired. The membership on this 
work is small but faithful. They love Methodism. 

Eed Springs Circuit — J. D. Murphy, pastor. As uusual under 
the leadership of Brother Murphy this charge has proudly carried 
her banner high. Much improvement has been made in church 
building to the amount of $400. Many accessions to the member- 
ship of the church have been made. The Sunday Schools are 
in good condition, and the Epworth League is alive at Eed Springs. 
The benevolence is reported increased this year while the Jubilee 
has not been neglected. Brother Murphy is one man out of a 
thousand who could preach so long as he has done around his 
home and still hold the esteem and appreciation of the people. 
In this he has been wonderfully successful. His people desire his 
return. 

Eowland and Salem — J. W. Simpson, pastor. This charge con- 
sists of two churches. Here we have a strong membership and a 
loyal people. Brother Simpson has done his work splendidly. He 
has lived among his people exerting a sweet influence that is in-, 
epiring to all with whom he comes in contact. His people love 
him and respect his council and leadership. Good revival have been 
held at both churches as results of his evangelistic efforts and many 
have been added to the church. The benevolent collections are 
in advance of last year and the Jubilee has not been negected. 
A good report comes from this work. 



Fifty Fifth Session North Carolina Conference 49 

Sanford Circuit — A. B. McQueen, pastor. This charge has three 
points about twelve miles apart, and the membership at each place 
is small. The people are good Methodists, but are not able to do 
what is required to give a comfortable support to the pastor who 
serves them. Though Brother McQueen has stuck to his post, yet his 
suffering and sacrifice must have been great, but he has borne all 
cheerfully and comes to the conference with a good report. 

Wilmington Circuit — Nothing has been done on this charge this 
year. Brother Thomas Payne supplied the work part of the 
year, then gave it up. Since that time the pastor at Wilmington, 
D. A. Williams has looked after the work. There are only two 
preaching places fifty-eight miles apart, a few members, but loyal 
Methodists. 

Wilmington Station — D. A. Williams, pastor. This little band of 
faithful Methodists have labored hard to keep things going, tT5 
carry a debt and support the pastor is quite a burden. But they 
have wrought nobly this year and their achievements are remarka- 
ble. Some few members have been added to the church and some 
old indebtedness paid off. The pastor brings some benevolent 
money to the conference. This work needs help in order to build 
another good house of worship. There is yet hope for Wilmington. 
As District Superintendent we have not accomplished all that we 
have desired and judged necessary to the greater success of the 
work in general, but we are thankful for what we have been en- 
abled to accomplish by the help of God and shall rest with the 
satisfaction that comes to one from the consciousness of having 
done what he could under existing circumstances. We trust Bishop 
that your presence as president of this conference, and in sweet 
brotherly spirit that we know you to possess in the conducting of 
the business of this conference may be a blessed benediction to 
this entire community. And your stay and that of all the mem- 
bers of the conference and friends among us may be in every way 
a pleasant one. 

Submitted respectfully, 

W. R. ZIEGLBR, D. S. 

WINSTON DISTRICT. 

Mr. President, Members of the North Carolina Conference and 
Friends: — It is with peculiar pleasure I rise to submit to you my 
first Annual Report of the Winston District. I must acknowledge 
the graceful and merciful guidance of the Most High in the execu- 
tion of my work. ' ' To whom be given glory and dominion forever 
and ever." Much credit is due my predecessor, Dr. M. M. Jones, for 



50 Fifty Fifth Session North Carolina Conference 

the excellent condition he left the district. Our succcess, if any 
there be, in a measure, is attributed to the well arranged plans in- 
stituted by him prior to leaving the district. This district em- 
braces a vast territory, stretching from the beautiful plains of 
Eowan and Stanly counties on the west, where the cotton farmer 
nourishes, to the dark and wild mountains in Franklin county, Va., 
where the apple tree is cultivated for a living, yet numerically it 
is the smallest district in the conference. Here in this region 
manufacturing interests are carried on in lumber, cotton, tobacco 
and canneries. Thousand of our people flock to these manufac- 
turing centers for employment, leaving in the main the country 
sparsely settled, yet with these disadvantages, we have looked after 
to the best of our ability, every general interest committed to our 
care. 

THE DISTRICT CONFERENCE. 

Our District Conference convened at Lexington, N. O, July 
20, 1913 where the good people and pastor spared no pains in mak- 
ing the entertainment ideal. Great interest was manifested in this 
conference. We had most excellent attendance, and it seemed the 
people had a mind to work. Each speaker had his or her subject 
well in hand and drove home the desired truths. Much time was 
given to the study and discussion of the benevolent boards of the 
church, embracing their objects and their needs. The managers 
of Commission on Finance sent Drs. I. F. Thomas and I. G. Penn, 
to instruct us in the same. We enjoyed their visit; it was both pleas- 
ant and instructive. The Jubilee Anniversary was quite a success 
we raised $156.00. Much credit is given the brethren who inter- 
ested themselves and their people in this anniversary. 

SPIRITUAL STATE. 

Obeying the behest of our honored and esteemed bishop, we 
entered immediately into the spiritual work of the church as the 
most essential duty of the ministry. Soul winning has been the 
watchword of the district. Each minister has not been dilitory to 
the fact that his first duty is to eject spiritual life into his congre- 
gation. In fact, we have urged that the pulpit, not the parish is 
he preacher 's throne. And by no means and under no conditions 
mince matters in preaching the gospel. We may be pastors, and 
ought to be; we may be revivalists, and ought to be; we may be 
evangelists, and ought to be, but not these first. We must preach 



Fifty Fifth Session North Carolina Conference 51 

the gospel and other things will yield. Every charge has contested 
for the per cent gain in membership; and with few excepting the 
aim has been accomplished. 

The district averages over a ten per cent gain. While some 
charges have fallen below, others have gone beyond. "We have en- 
joyed great revivals on the district, which resulted in many con- 
versions and accessions. We bring to you a gain of per cent. 

EDUCATION. 

Believing the following of a conversion of a boy or a girl, the 
next duty is literary qualification for service, we have emphasized 
the importance of education, and particularly the higher education. 
In no small degree we have advocated the matriculation of suitable 
young men and women in Bennett College, Kent and Allen Homes 
and similar institutions. We have impressed throughout the dis- 
trict the merits of Bennett College. The intelligence has been 
spread abroad that solid education and a higher moral tone may 
be secured there. An earnest plea has been made since entering 
upon the district for students for Bennett College and our model 
homes. We are much gratified with results. 

SUNDAY SCHOOLS. 

The Sunday Schools in the main are well organized on the 
district and doing effective wrk. The great opportunity for our 
boys and girls to help and be helped presents itself in no capacity 
in the church more than in the Sunday School. This fact we have 
not failed to impress. The importance of the cradle roll in every 
school has been encouraged throughout the district. And our ob- 
servation is many schools have instituted the same. 

EPWORTH LEAGUE AND BROTHERHOOD. 

These departments are not as active among our people as we 
desire, yet we are doing some efficient work in this realm. Much 
time, mainly efforts with uncompromising sacrifice, has been given 
to these causes. Through the sane and wise leadership of Prof. 
J. A. McRae, a convention was held which not only reflected credit 
upon its. managers but upon the entire district. And our Ep- 
worthians left the convention pledging themselves to arouse the 
entire district more fully to this particular phase of church work. 



52 Fifty Fifth Session North Carolina Conference 

OUE PEEIODICALS. 

We have ever kept before our people the necessity of reading 
our church literature. We have urged to be not only Methodist 
but reading Methodists. The Christian Advocte of the church has 
been recommended frequently to them, and especially our South- 
western Christian Advocate, edited by our much beloved and effi- 
cient Dr. E. E. Jones. 

BENEVOLENT CAUSE. 

Since the operation of the great church is largely dependent 
upon th benevolent collections this idea has been kept before onr 
people. We have insisted that nothing supplant the general be- 
nevolent cause. And we have been broad in this matter. The va- 
rious boards have been mentioned by name and their stringent 
needs presented. And as a result many a faithful minister comes 
here with his benevolent money, but without his salary. A com- 
mendable increase has been made for this cause. 

CHUECH INDEBTEDNESS. 

Coming to this district I found it heavily in debt in most of 
our leading churches. While we have presented forcefully our 
benevolent claims, we have also emphasized the fact that hon- 
esty should precede charity. And as a result of the great rallies 
this year we have not a church that is now financially handi- 
capped. This does not say we are clear of debt on this district, but 
it does say that we have the debts under control. The money raised 
for church indebtedness and improvements amounts to the sum 
of $6,287.19. Knowing conditions and circumstances of our people 
as I do this is considered a handsome sum. 

MINISTEEIAL SUPPOET. 

Speaking in mild terms the ministerial support is entirely in- 
adequate to meet the pressing demands made upon the ministers 
and their families. In many places when a faithful and strug- 
gling people have done what they could, then they have com- 
pletely failed to relieve the embarrassing needs at the parsonage. 
Great many ministers are forced to supplement their insufficient 
salary by farming or teaching, not because they so desire it, 
not because it is best for the moral and spiritual growth of the 



Fifty Fifth Session North Carolina Conference 53 

church but because while they are obligated to the care of a 
church they are also obligated to the care of a family. Both 
obligations are sacred and neither should impede the progress 
of the other, yet on the account of the meagre salary of some of 
our ministers the work of the church is much handicapped. These 
are regretting facts, nevertheless they are true facts. While the 
above statements exist we are still glad to note a slight increase 
in salary throughout the district. 

SUMMAKY. 

Advance — S. E. McCorkle, pastor. This charge has enjoyed 
a most successful year under the wise and faithful supervision of 
Brother McCorkle. He has worked hard to bring his charge to 
a higher standard. His report will show that an increase has been 
made on all lines. His people appreciate his service and plead for 
his return. Conversions, 18. Accessions, 14. 

Asheboro and Mitchell — G. W. Brower, pastor. Brother Brower 
has wrought manfully and heroically on this charge. Being sick 
in the spring months greatly impeded his work, yet his report 
will show that he has made good since returning to duty. Much 
money has been raised on church indebtedness. His sermons are 
deeply spiritual and have telling effect upon his people. Benevo- 
lent collections double the previous year. Conversions, 20. Ac- 
cessions, 15. 

Dennis and Bed Bank — C. E. Howard, pastor. This is a small 
charge, yet Brother Howard has done his duty by this people. A 
splendid revival has been on in this charge. He enjoys the respect 
of his people. Conversions, 18. Accessions, 18. 

Denton — This place was supplied by Brother Frank Parker. 
He has done what he could for moral and spiritual welfare of the 
people. 

East Thomasville and Midway — W. H. Webster, pastor. His 
report will show an advancement in the general claims of the 
church. Brother Webster has the confidence of his people as being 
a high-toned Christian gentleman and an acceptable gospel preach- 
er,. Conversions, 20. Accessions, 14. 

High Point — J. W. Wells, pastor. This is a well organized 
charge. One has but to attend service at this church to observe 
the fact that there is an expert pastor behind the throne. Splendid 
results have been achieved at this church and advancements made 
in every thing. Nearly two thousand dollars for all purposes have 
been raised. Brother Wells is an organizer, pastor, pulpit orator 



54 Fifty Fifth Session North Carolina Conference 

and a preacher of no mean reputation. Conversions, 4. Accessions, 
47. 

Kernersville — Win. Chavis, pastor. Brother Chavis has worked 
hard to make things go on this charge. Much sickness has been 
in his family this year. Still he rejoices in a most prosperous year 
in church work. He has raised the standard considerably on this 
charge. Conversions, 16. Accessions, 12. 

Lexington and Thomasville — N. J. Pass, pastor. This is one 
of the most prosperous charges on the district. Peace and harmony 
reign throughout the charge. The membership at Thomasville 
is building a fine church of cement blocks. The church when fin- 
ished will be a credit to the conference. Splendid rallies to the 
amount of $1,700 have been raised, excellent revivals and an in- 
crease in benevolent collections, though building is the record for 
the charge. Brother Pass is witty, jolly generous, yet he exer- 
cises magnificent administrative ability. 

Madison and Stoneville — W. W. Pope, pastor. Madison is 
one of our leading charges. This charge has never done better 
work in the history of the church than this year. Under the 
unique management of the efficient pastor money has been raised 
and an annex built to the original church two-thirds the size of the 
former. The church at Stoneville has been extensively remodeled. 
Both churches paid as they went. This charge makes an increase 
on pastor 's salary and benevolences. Brother Pope has never done 
a harder year's work with greater results. Indeed we consider him 
a safe leader, a gospel preacher and a venerable Christian gentle- 
man. Conversions, 17. Accessions, 44. 

Madison Circuit— E. L. Gilreath, pastor. Theh people on this 
charge congratulate themselves on having such a peaceful, agree- 
able and social minister as Brother Gilreath. Under his leader- 
ship the work has steadily advanced. He knows how to bring 
thing to pass. 

Mt. Airy and Pilot Muntain— P. I. Wells, pastor. This charge 
is in most excellent shape. Brother Wells though a young man is 
proving himself to be a pastor, preacher and financier of which his 
church feels elated. Plans are out and money being raised for a 
new church at Pilot Mountain. There is an increase in the benevo- 
lent collections. Sentiment is loud for his return. Conversions, 26. 
Accessions, 21. 

Mt. Airy Circuit — This place was supplied with Wm. Headen. 
Brother Headen has worked hard with little results. 

Pen Hook and Hales' Ford — W. E. Clapp, pastor. Brother 
Clapp has enjoyed splendid revivals on his charge this year. He 



Fifty Fifth Session North Carolina Conference 55 

has labored intensively hard for the general uplift of the work. 
He deserves much credit for his untiring efforts. Conversions, 22. 
Accessions, 14. 

Bandlenian and St. Mark — S. J. Headen, pastor. Brother Headen 
has done excellent work on this charge. He is far in alvance of 
his predecessor in his report financially and spiritually. He is ac- 
corded as being a faithful worker and an excellent gospel preacher. 
Conversions, 12. Accessions, 14. 

Eocky Mount and Boone's Mill. This charge was supplied 
by Alexander McNeill, but we found it prudent to make a change 
at once. And in lieu of Brother McNeill we supplied it with C. B. 
Love, who has done commendable work there. He brings up his 
general claims nicely. Conversions, 10. Accessions, 8. 

Salisbury and Morning Star — A. C. Hill, pastor. The pastor 
is much liked by his people and he has done some good work. Con- 
versions, 5. Accessions, 7. 

South High Point — G. W. Morehad, pastor. This church has 
enjoyed the most prosperous year in its history. Debts have 
been paid, church remodeled and electric lights installed, benevo- 
lent collections doubled, ministerial support increased. Brother 
Morehead is a happy fit in this charge. A unanimous plea comes 
from his church for his return. Conversions, 33. 

Trinity and Liberty — B. J. Shipp pastor. Brother Shipp has 
finished and painted the church at Trinity, and has the frame up 
at Glenola for a new church there. He is considered by his people 
as being both an eloquent anl elegant gospel preacher. 

Walnut Cove — A. E. Bobinson, pastor. The pastor has things 
well in hand on this charge. His people confide in his ability and 
judgment. Encouraging advancements have been made in the gen- 
eral benevolent collections. Through his efforts the church at 
Walnut Cove has been completed. Conversions, 17. Accessions, 20. 

Mt. Pleasant and Boston Cottage — Winston — Willis Ellison, 
pastor. Brtother Ellison was transferred from the East Tennessee 
Conference to this conference last November and stationed here. 
He went to work as soon as he got on the charge. The people 
soon found they had a masterful hand on the helm of affairs and 
they worked with him. The people have given him whatever he 
asked of them. One thousand dollars are now in bank for the 
finishing of our church there. Benevolent collections increased, 
salary increased and paid. To say the least Brother Ellison is a 
strong preacher and an ideal hustler. Conversions, 60. Acces- 
sions, 71. 

St. James and Oak Grove — S. L. May, pastor. Brother May has 
enjoyed a prosperous year. He has bought and paid for a church 



56 Fifty Fifth Session North Carolina Conference 

srte on one of the main thorougfares of Winston and is now plan- 
ning to erect a modern church upon it. His report shows an in- 
crease in the benevolent cause. His people love and honor him. 
Being sick he sends his report and ask your prayers. Conversions, 
35. Accessions, 21. 

St. Paul — Winston — H. L. Ashe, pastor. This is the leading 
charge on the district. Brother Ashe came to this charge one year 
ago and found many debts that needed adjusting at once. Being 
that type of a man who posesssed judicial ability, excellent pluck 
and push as well as grace, began immediately to better, financial 
conditions. He crowns his heroic effort with the handsome sum 
of $5,000 for all purposes raised this year. He is considered one 
of the most popular ministers of Winston. His people love, honor 
and obey him. In fact, his church esteems his as being a man of 
God, virtuous as judge, undaunted m duty, gentle in heart, yet with 
a lion 's courage against the evil. Conversions, 16. Accessions, 58. 

OUE SUPEBANNUATES. 

When I travel over hills through denies and across plains 
tracing the sainted footsteps of these honored brethren who have 
preceeded me, I pause a moment in silent admiration. In many 
places the Great High Priest was not consulted; no sacrifice burnt 
upon the altar before their visit. The following brethren peace- 
fully reside on the Winston District awaiting the summons of the 
Almighty from the church militant to the church trumphant. 

Brother W. A. Pryor resides at High Point and makes himself 
useful in the church work there. Brother S. M. Hanes is located in 
Winston-Salem and is of great service to the pastor and people of 
his community. Brother Elisha Howard peacefully abides at 
Asheboro, whose sainted presence graces his surroundings and 
hallows Methodism on the spot. Brother F. L. Bost lives in Ker- 
nersville and is one of the most active members connected with our 
church there. He is a class leader and holds other prominent of- 
fices of the church. He never wearies in doing for the church. 
Brother D. Brooks is stationed at High Point. He is ever availa- 
ble for service for the Master. He is yet as ever loved and honored 
for his great life and age, profound wisdom and celestial virtues. 

We are much indebted to our pious and beloved Bishop Hen- 
derson for advice, suggestions and plans, in whatever success is 
accorded the Winston District. The general officiary of the church 
also has our hearty thanks for their help in the work. We are 
thankful for the unshaken co-operation and support of the pastors. 



Pifty-Pifth Session North Carolina Conference 57 

If there be any glory we share it together, since we have rejoiced 
and wept together in victories and defeats. We are thankful to 
the laity for open doors of hospitality, mutual co-operation and 
helpfulness in the great work. But above all things else we are 
grateful to Almighty God, for preservation of life, liberty and hap- 
piness, for an opportunity to labor in his vineyard and for the 
Christian age in which we live. Finally I am reminded of a ques- 
tion put by an Edomite to the watchman upon the tower. He calls 
out of Mount Lir and the question is serious. It is as follows: 
Watchman! Watchman! What of the Night. We infer he means, 
What o'clock is it. . What occurs from the night. What weather 
is it. What 's the news. What 's the outlook. The watchman was 
neither asleep nor dumb, though it was a man of Mount Lir that 
called to him, he was ready to give an answer thus, "The morn- 
ing cometh." As ministers of the Winston District whom God 
has appointed as watchmen on the tower, we have watched the 
district in time of peace to see that all werje safe, to knock at every 
door by personal inquiries to see if it is locked, is the fire safe, 
to dircet those that are at a loss and check those that are disor- 
derly. And too, as watchmen we have taken special notice of the 
enemy 's motions and made an alarm in due time to save the fort, 
for watchmen wake when others sleep. Until now we can truth- 
fully say let us arise put on the armor of light for "the morning 
cometh ' ' upon the Winston District, I am, 

Yours in His Name, 

E. W. WINCHESTEE, D. S.

REPORT OF STANDING COMMITTEES 

RESOLUTIONS. 

Whereas, this Conference has wisely adopted Bishop Hender- 
son's plan for a meeting of unusual importance to be held at Ben- 
net College this spring, and whereas at said meeting would be a 
good time to take steps for the organization of the Negro Organi- 
zation Society of North Carolina, and whereas said society is for the 
purpose of bringing together all negroes regardless of denomina- 
tion or fraternal affiliation, and whereas that is the great need 
of our race today, therefore, 

Be It Resolved, that at this Conference, we here and now ap-

Memoirs. 

David Connell was one whose passing as well as his living 
may be considered in the light of the Bible which says, Blessed ar,e 
the dead who die in the Lord; yea, saith the spirit, for they rest 
from their labor and their works do follow them. For, indeed, 
he was a conscientious and a faithful worker. Some of the men 
who served in the ministry and in official capacity in the Metho- 
dist Episcopal Church were brought to Christ under his pastorate. 
He was a true friend to Christian education also, and both assisted 
young people in pursuit of it, and espoused the cause of this part of 
our church work. 

As a man and a citizen he represented the sturdy, reliable sort. 
You could rely on his word. He regarded the reputation of his 
brethren, and did not sow the seed of dissention. His conversa- 
tion was godly, and his habits were thrifty, clean and sober. 

As a minister of the gospel, he was of the evangelistic spirit. 
He would encourage the man of God who came to preach the 
word for the salvation of souls, and would warn sinners to flee 
the wrath to come. He plead with men to come to Jesus. As a 
churchman, in his prime 25 years ago, he served successfully 
his generation when it could be said truthfully there were giants 
in those days. They stood four square and some of them six feet 
in their boots. They were Father Morgan, Isaac Wells, Matthew 
Alston, Joseph Caldicut and others whose sacred memory lingers 
with us. They carried the glorious gospel from the mountains to 
the sea, and planted the church on many a hilltop. 

David Connell was born among the family of Grays, near 
Andrews Grove, Randolph County, North Carolina, a county made 
famous because of the streams of Christian workers that flow 
from it making glad the City of God. From there have come many 
of the strongest preachers of the North Carolina Conference, as 
well as some of the most consecrated wives of its preachers. 

Charlotte, High Point, Townsville, Baleigh, Thomasville and 
Lexington are among the important churches that he served as 



60 Fifty Fifth Session North Carolina Conference 

pastor. In the latter years of his life, he went to Greensboro 
where he lived until death had him wrap his mantle about him 
and lie down to pleasant dreams. It was there he waited the 
summons which came December 15, 1912. Having been abundant 
in labors, kind of heart, sweet of spirit and true in what is best, 
his brothers in the ministry here today love his memory. 



Alexander Clark, who died June 15, 1913, was among the 
younger men of the ministry of our church. He entered the 
North Carolina Conference in the eighties. But having a desire 
to prepare himself for the Christian ministry he went to Gam- 
mon Theological Seminary, Atlanta, Georgia, after pursuing a 
course of study in Bennett College, Greensboro, N. C. And after 
finishing his course at Gammon, he returned to North Carolina. 
His charge, High Point and Trinity, had been supplied by Dr. J. 
P. Morris, professor of mathematics in Bennett and a student, 
was taken up by him. He also served as pastor at Asheville, 
Eeidsville, South Greensboro and other appointments. 

Alexander Clark belonged to the Jeremiah type of men. He was 
good at heart and pure in life. He had enough of the serious to 
balance him from being frivolous. When he preached he also plead 
with his hearers to let every soul be Jesus' guest. 

Sabbath Observance. 

According to God's command the Sabbath Day should be ob- 
served, and whereas, this is looked upon so lightly by the people 
at large and especially by those who defy the Sabbath of the Lord 
God: 

Be It Resolved, that the ministres of the North Carolina Confer- 
ence urge the observance of the Sabbath. 

American Bible Society. 

We, your committee, recognize the fact that the American Bible 
Society is one he great agents in spreading the Word of God: 

Therefore, Be It Resolved, that we, the preachers of the North 
Carolina Conference, stand by this cause by faithfully presenting 
the cause to our people. 

Respectfully submitted, 
J. C. ROBBINS, 
B. F. THOMAS, 
R. J. SHIPP. 



Fifty Fifth Session North Carolina Conference 61 
Methodist Brotherhood. 

Whereas, gratitude is the strongest prompting of the human 
heart for service rendered and deeds done. 

And whereas, our Brotherhood, holds a place of such vital im- 
portance in the stimulation of the men of the church, especially 
at the most important stage in their life: 

Be It Resolved, that most scrutinizing care be given both, to 
the organization and adoption of measures for its success. 
Committee: 
N. J. PASS, 
M. M. MUNDY, 
P. P. JOHNSON. 

Committee on Reform. 

Whereas, the Methodist Episcopal Church was founded by the 
Rev. John Wesley upon principles and governed by laws that have 
withstood the tide of oppression from her birth, 

And Whereas, but for removable hindrance the church could 
do a far greater work, 

Therefore, Be It Resolved, that we call upon the ministers and 
laymen of the North Carolina Conference to join hands in taking 
steps to bring about a reformation along two or three special lines. 

First, that we go back to the custom of the Pilgrim Fathers of 
taking the children by the hand and leading them to the chuPch on 
the Sabbath Day. 

Second, that we place greater emphasis upon the sin of neglect- 
ing the prayer and class meetings. 

Third, that we insist upon the use of plans and methods adopted 
by the Church, for prosecuting the work of the Church. 

Fourth, that we make the Bible under the Holy Spirit the prime 
factor in leading people to Christ. 

Committee, 

samuel Mcdonald, 

J. W. JONES. 
Board of Sunday Schools. 

Whereas, the work of the Board of Sunday Schools is fundamen- 
tal in perpetuating Methodism to coming generations in its mission 
to give moral and religious instruction to the children, 



62 Fifty Fifth Session North Carolina Conference 

And, whereas, the Board of Sunday Schools is primarily the 
means for establishing schools in places where they would not 
otherwise be had. 

And, whereas, we recognize the Board of Sunday Schools as be- 
ing one of the greatest agencies for spreading the gospel and the 
in-gathering of the youth, 

Be Tt Resolved, that we pledge the Board and its secretary, Dr. 
Jacobs our hearty support and co-operation and insist upon every 
member of the North Carolina Conference raising their apportion- 
ment. 

Committee, 
W. ELLISON, 
A. W. Mc ARTHUR. 

Board of Education. 

Whereas, man is the crown and capstone of all creation, and 
he can not adorn and beautify this exalted place of service, trust 
and honor without education of both heart and mind. 

And whereas, the Freedmen 's Aid Society has been working with 
untiring zeal to remove the shackle of ignorance and to bring 
to the sons of the freedmen the light of Christian civilization. 

And, whereas, Bennett College, Kent and Allen Homes stand 
out against ignorance and for the higher education of the sons 
and daughters of the slaves. 

And whereas, Secretary Penn has so masterfully planned the 
Jubilee Celebration with the encouragment of our beloved Bishop 
Henderson and President Wallace, the newly elected president of 
Bennett College has everything so weJl in hand. 

Be It Resolved, that we, the members of the North Carolina Con- 
ference pledge to give our co-operation and support to President 
Wallace in fostcrirg the cause of Bennett College, and that we will 
not only send our own children to the school but will make Ben- 
nett College the slogaji throughout the year. 

Committee, 
H. L. ASHE, 
A. C. HILL, 
J. W. SIMPSON. 

Whereas, the members of this Conference have been dilatory 
for the most part, in reporting their minute money, thereby em- 
barrassing the secretary in getting out the Minutes and causing 
embarrassment to the District Superintendents who have to stand 
for the necessary funds, 



Fifty Fifth Session North Carolina Conference 63 

Therefore, Be It Eesolved that the brethren report their money 
for the Minutes not later than the District Conference. 
C. K. BROWN, 
R. B. BHYNE. 

Whereas, we received royal enertainment and unnumbered cour- 
tesies at the hauds of members and friends of St.. George Metho- 
dist Church of this city (Maxton), 

Therefore, Be It Resolved, that we extend our thanks to the 
pastor, choir, sexton and to all the people white and colored, 
who have contributed in any way to the comfort and pleasure of 
this Conference. 

Whereas, we read with intense interest and profit the South- 
western Christian Advocate under the editorship of Dr. R. E. Jones, 

Therefore, Be It Resolved, First, that this Conference express its 
thanks to Dr. Jones for the superior excellence of his work as edi- 
tor and for his splendid courage in pleading for the rigrts of his 
people in church and state. 

Resolved, Second, that we approve his wise and manly stand 
in his advocacy for righteousness and that we affectionately com- 
mend him to the consideration of our great church and pledge our- 
selves to the support of the Southwestern. 

Whereas, it has geen our privilege and pleasure to have preside 
over this session of the North Carolina Conference Bishop Theo- 
dore S. Henderson, 

Resolved, that we highly appreciate the justice, impartiality 
and kindness which has characterized his presidency over our delib- 
eration. 

Resolved, Second that we request the Board of Bishops to as- 
sign him to the presidency of this conference another year. 

Resolved, that we thank Dr. G. H. Trevor, for his illuminating 
addresss on the Bible at our daily sessions. 

Resolved, that we thank our general officers for their presence 
and their inspiring addresses. 

Whereas, the Rev. C. G. Cummings has ably represented the 
Board of Home Missions and Church Extension, 

Therefore, Be It Resolved, that we extend Dr. Cummings our 
thanks for his genial presence and inspiring addresses with the hope 
that he will come to us again.

Committee Report on Temperance. 

It is good not to eat flesh, nor to drink wine, nor to do anything 
whereby thy brother stumbleth. (Rom. 14:21.) Since our lives are 
bound up with others, we should be very careful to cast our in- 
fluence on the right side. The entire nation is astir on the "Tern 
perance Question." Better conditions prevail wherever the ban 
has been placed upon the saloons. The enemies of the temper- 
ance cause are fighting with all of their forces, but is is evident 
that they cannot stand the onslaughts of a righteous foe. The 
temperance question is a live one in all the world today, and we 
prophesy that the time is not far distant, when the thousands 
who go down annually by alcohol, shall be saved to the nations of 
the world and to the kingdom of God. The Saviour 's immortal 
words apply here: "For their sakes I sanctify myself." As min- 
isters of the North Carolina Conference, let us sanctify ourselves 
unto God for His glory and for the sake of humanity.

V. REPORTS 



REPORTS OF DISTRICT SUPERINTENDENTS 

REPORT OF GREENSBORO DISTRICT 

Dear Bishop and Brethren: — I am very thankful to our Heav- 
enly Father to be here today; and in His name to make this 
my sixth, and final report of the Greensboro District. 

Many have been the joys and sorrows too we have had since 
we have had the oversight of this very important work, a work 
which any one should feel equally proud; for this is a place that 
tries men; "But out of all -the Lord hath brought us by His 
love; and still He doth His help afford, and hides our life 
above." 

We received the appointment to this District six years ago 
at the hand of Bishop F. M. Bristol; we knew at the time that 
the task would be no small one; for to lead men by precept and 
example is no small task I repeat; for after all if our work does 
not meet the approval of God, it cannot stand. I am thankful 
to say that at least in a small measure we have succeeded along 
these lines. 

We have not done all the good that we could have done for 
the time that we have held this position, but we are thankful for 
that which has been wrought in His name, for only the God of 
light, and the God of might has been with us all the way. 

When I came to this district, succeeding the Rev. M. J. Bul- 
lock, I found it in a good and healthy condition. The District 
Superintendent had done his work well, and no hints of scandal 
was heard on all of this great district (for which I am thankful), 
and now, Sir, Bishop Henderson, I hope to turn this district over 
to you this day under God inviolate, and that physically, mentally, 
intellectually, socially, numerically, morally and spiritually, my 
successor may find this district today in as good condition as it 
was when it was turned over to me six years ago, and that he may 
not be ashamed to follow me, as I was not ashamed to follow my 
predecessor. 

I can truthfully say that every man of this district has "had a 
square deal," and no man in any way has been crushed by me; 
and I can and will say this open and above board, and fear not 
a contradiction: The men on this district have been on their 



26 North Carolina Conference 

own merit. I have striven by word and action to let them 
know that one thing, and I think that in a measure they have 
seen it, and have profited by it. 

I think that the day of coercion is past, and that men should 
be persuaded to do their duty in all things, and that persuasion 
should be more by example. There are men doubtless- on this 
district who have and are standing very near to the administrator. 
If that is true (and I know it is) it is true because they put 
themselves into that position, and I must say that we have some of 
that kind. 

Many souls this year have been moved to "renounce the world, 
the flesh and the devil," and to make a start for the better 
world, whch is out of sight to the natural eye, but visible to tne 
eye spiritual they, I say, are striving to be ready when their 
hours shall come to leave this world of sin and sorrow, and in 
that great beyond "To pass over the river and rest under the 
shade of the trees.' ' 

There have not been so many conversions on this district as 
we wanted, but we thank God for the real work that has been 
done as a whole upon this district. God has indeed been with 
us all of the Avay, and has helped us mightily, for without Him 
we would have been an utter failure, and our work would have 
been naught. 

This district has 24 charges, with 50 churches and four other 
places where we worship. We have 57 Sunday schools, with many 
officers and teachers. We have also 34 Epworth League Chapters 
on this district, a gain of several for the year, which speaks well 
for the Epworth League; but we have not as many as there should 
be on this district. 

I am sure that the League work sucers much on this district 
for the want of progressive and aggressive individuals, who, with 
a "master hand" could turn a seeming defeat into a great tri- 
umph; for this work not only needs trained men of minds, but 
trained hearts, hearts which feel the pure love of God, and who 
are willing to go out and win a victory in His name. 

This has been a year of hard work with almost all of the 
ministers and members; moneys have been very hard to get, 
hence the fall off along many lines. The pastors have not received 
all of their salary either, but if there had been more effort on all 
hands I am sure that the result would have been far different 
from what it is today. 

We all well know that our resident Bishop Henderson has 
done all that was expected of any man to carry his part of this 
burden, and he has done it well, and I am sure that the situation 



Fifty- Sixth Session 27 

would not be what it is today if it were not for his untiring" zeal 
and labor for this work of the church. 

The Epworth League, Sunday School Convention and District 
was held at Bass's Chapel, July 14-19, 1914. I think that this 
assembly was good, and the carrying out of the young people's 
part was as good as it had been heretofore, and I think also 
that the people were helped by the many speakers and visitors. 
Then we had Prof. N. C. Xewbold, Associate Supervisor Rural 
Schools, who gave to us good advice relative to the building up 
better parents, better homes, better children, better schools and 
better teachers. I think this advice was taken. Then followed 
Prof. C. R. Hudson, U. S. Agent Farmers Co-operative Demon- 
stration Work, who gave to us a great address on better farms, 
better farmers and better people. I am sure that all who heard 
this address along the lines mentioned were greatly helped. 

Presence and addresses of the women of the Woman's Home 
Missionary' and Foreign Missionary Societies. These addresses 
were good and appreciated. There was with us also Dr. C. C. 
Jacobs, of the Sunday school work, who rendered good and efficient 
service. Then we had with us also Dr. J. C. Sherrill, of the For- 
eign Missionary Society, who I think so well presented that work 
before us that we have a much better understanding of the work- 
ing of that great society. We had also with us Dr. J. X. C. Cog- 
gins, of the Church Temperance Society. I think that I say noth- 
ing but what is true when I say to you that Dr. Coggins was at 
his best. I know he dealt the rum traffic some great and telling 
blows. The Rev. R. W. Winchester, District Superintendent of 
Winston District, was with us and I must say that Brother Win- 
chester gave us a good account of himself while with us and also 
gave a good account of his district. We had also the Rev. Alex- 
ander H. Xewsome with us, of the Western District, and I am 
sure that the work was made more enjoyable because he was with 
us. He rendered good service. The Rev. H. L. Ashe, of St. Paul's, 
Winston-Salem, X. C, who represented Southwestern for Dr. 
Jones (could not at that time be with us"). I think that Brother 
Ashe took good care of the interests of the Southwestern for Dr. 
Jones at this District Conference. 

Education 

The situation is not all that it should be among us here in the 
Xorth Carolina Conference. To have an educated hand, head and 
heart, that individual who is thus educated will be appreciated 
almost anywhere. To be educated really means to lead one out 
from anything that would lower in the real sight of man or of 



28 North Carolina Conference 

his God; not an education that will cause one to try and shun 
work, but an education that will make work honorable in the 
sight of all. There is no disgrace in honest toil. 

We have in the midst of the N. C. Conference Bennett Col- 
lege, Kent Home and Allen Industrial Home; at Greensboro, Ben- 
nett and Kent Home; and at Asheville Allen Industrial Home. 
These institutions are for the material, intellectual, social, moral 
and spiritual uplift of our youth; that is what these institutions 
are maintained for, and we look for that class of students who 
are anxious for this kind of education, for if we are being edu- 
cated along right lines then our education will be a blessing, 
and not a curse. 

Dr. J. E. Wallace, President of Bennett College, with his 
faculty, I am sure, are striving and putting forward every 
effort to send from this institution a class of young men and 
women who have indeed had a true vision of service, and who, 
in the name of God, will go out and show to the world that their 
education has not been in vain. Let us all do all that is in 
our power to make this institution all that it ought to be, and 
may the spirit of its founders still remain with us as a Confer- 
ence, and with the institution also. 

Kent Home 

Mrs. Donelson, with her associates, the Misses Bell and Bug- 
bee, are striving to make a great impression upon the hearts and 
minds of our girls that will be felt and seen for many days to 
come. 

The Woman's Home Missionary Society, through these in- 
stitutions is doing a great work for our girls, for their moral 
and spiritual uplift. Would to God that we could see it and 
appreciate it. 

Allen Industrial Home 

Miss Alsie B. Dole, Superintendent, with her helpers* are, and 
have been, doing a great work for the girls of that part of the 
state. That work is very hard to be duplicated. Many of you 
know doubtless the number of years this godly woman has stood 
at the head of this institution. Such a record anyone it seems 
would not be ashamed to have. • God only knows the work 
that has been done in that institution for the uplift of our 
people. May she live long to do the work that the society has 
called on her to do. 



Fifty-Sixth Session 29 

Temperance 

The temperance question is a great one, and I am sure that 
it is pressing its way among us as never before, for we realize 
that it is the burning question of today. State after state is com- 
ing out on the prohibition side. I thank God for the high stand 
taken this year by the prohibitionists in the Virginias and in 
other states this year, for in these states the demon Rum has 
had quite a shock, and a knock out. We all know that both men 
and women too, especially of my race, are more protected on 
the railways and in other public places since whiskey has been 
outlawed. And I am glad to say to you here that our own be- 
loved church stands in the foremost ranks as an enemy to strong 
drink. That is just as it should be, for we should be in the 
foremost ranks against everything that is wrong. This nation 
must sooner or later face this issue, for I say here today that 
this nation cannot survive, half sober and the other half drunk. 

Summary and Review 

Central Randolph — M. J. Bullock, Pastor, has done about as 
well as he could under the circumstances. He is a hard worker 
himself and is always satisfied when he has everyone about him on 
the go. Six years ago Brother Lomax was pastor and before 
he left this work some improvements were made. 

Durham and Henderson — A. S. Green, pastor. Brother Green 
has done some very good work this year, especially at Creedmoor. 
The church work at Durham has been on the wane. We have 
planned to sell church there to satisfy a mortgage given by Mr. 
Dunn and others, and then buy and build in another part of the 
city. At Henderson we have not been able to build a new church 
as yet. You know a church was burned there some time ago. 

Empire — L. D. McQueen, pastor, has done a very good year's 
work. The membership holds up well. The meetings have been 
good this year, and many new members have been added to this 
charge this year. Brother McQueen is a good man and a good 
pastor. 

Greensboro, East — M. C. Laughlin has done a good year's work 
as a whole and I think that he is to be commended, for he has now 
been on this charge for eight years, a record that all of us 
cannot make, so you see he is the oldest man of this district. 
Brother Laughlin is a good worker; he has built two good church- 
es within the last six years, one at Sedalia, and the other be- 
yond the County Home, with much improvement also at Brown- 
ing Chapel. Brother Laughlin is a good man, and so far as I 



30 North Carolina Conference 

am concerned, lie may continue to stay all the time on his charge. 

Greensboro, High Street and Bass — J. A. Laughlin. He has 
done a good year's work on this field this year, notwithstanding 
the sickness of himself and the untimely death of the best child 
of his family, yet he (the pastor) labors on in the work upon 
which his heart is set. The first two years of my work on this 
district Rev. D. C. Skeen was pastor of this charge, and at Bass's 
Chapel was built, during his administration, a good tower arid a 
good bell for same, and keeping up with payments on High Street 
church. Brother Laughlin has, during his administration, en- 
larged Bass's Chapel and has really rebuilt High Street church, 
which church is now a beauty. Good work has been done on 
this charge all along. 

Greensboro, Northwest — G. W. Byers has now been pastor here 
for four years, succeeding Brother Bullock. I am sure that this 
work has and does need a strong man as its pastor, tor there 
has been-some little trouble within the fold. But Byers has nor 
only held his own, but has made some improvement. There has 
been built at Raleigh a. beautiful addition to that church and at 
Collin's Grove there has been bought three acres of land. Good 
meetings have been had and many added to the church. 

Greensboro. St. Matthews — R. T. Weatherby. This church, un- 
der the efficient leadership of our pastor here, has grown much 
along financial, social and spiritual lines. Brother Weatherby is 
a good man and a good pastor. The officers of this church are 
taking more interest in it than I have known them to in many 
years. Six years ago there were many debts hanging on here, 
but they Avere consolidated during Brother Winchester's pastor- 
ate, and money borrowed to pay off same. The church has to 
keep up the interest and take up notes as agreed to. There has 
been much improvement here this year; sewerage has been put in 
and a good street paved; also water has been put in at parsonage. 
This is indeed a great church with a large membership. I am 
sure that I desire that St. Matthews may take her place as a 
great spiritual center for our*Methodism in the state. 

Greensboro, South — W. T. Lomax has done done a good year's 
work on this, charge this year. Good meetings have been had 
and many members added to the church. Within the six years 
a new church was built at Red Hill by Brother J. W. Jones, paint- 
ed, finished and all debts paid off during the present pastorate, 
with a new addition at New Goshen church. We hope to see 
some improvements at Holmes Grove in the near future. 

Greensboro. Southwest — A. W. M'Master has, upon a whole I 
think accomplished a good year's work. Brother McMaster is now 



Fifty-Sixth Session 31 

serving the charge that he first served when he entered the min- 
istry, and I must say that both the people and pastor have 
made improvements. .The church at Mt. Carmel was enlarged dur- 
ing the pastorate of Brother J. A. Laughlin, and the church at 
Mt. Tabor was enlarged during the pastorate of the present pas- 
tor. Good meetings were held on this charge and some few added 
to the church. 

Jackson — J. H. Garrett has held his own here. It seems that 
his people never tire of him. I have not witnessed a more power- 
ful and spiritual meeting than the one that I visited of his at 
Jackson this year. Indeed there were deep conviction and great 
conversions in that meeting. The Mt. Olive church has been 
ceiled, and the Hickory Grove church has been built, and a good 
new one on the way at Jackson. 

Leaksville, J. W. Wells — This is his first year on this charge. 
We can see signs of new life on this charge for this brother is 
a leader and a worker among his people. There have been good 
meetings too on this charge and many members added to the 
church. Much improvement about parsonage and church this 
year. This is the church that was built by Brother Cottingham 
while Brother Bullock was on the district, and you know that 
this is a good church. During the pastorates of Brothers Win- 
chester and Cook all the debts were paid on same and today she 
swings clear of debt. At Shady Grove too we have a good church 
and a good people. Indeed Leaksville charge is a good one. 

Norfolk and Newport News, Ta. — C. I. Withrow has now been 
on this charge for five years. There has been in the past a 
marked increase in the membership at Norfolk and the church 
at Newport News is in a good way financially. Brother Withrow 
has done much in the way of preaching and in gathering in the 
people into the church, but of late there has been some fall off 
in the membership and in interest in the church work in gen- 
eral. At Norfolk a pipe organ has been installed and the church 
furnished with beautiful pews, with pulpit and, suit for same. 

Oakioood — Geo. W. Henderson has done some work here. He 
wanted very much to build a church at this place, but I fear that 
he is not equal to the opposition with which he met on all sides, 
but this we know that he is game and made a good start. 

Burkley-^-C. H. Walden. This work will I think in a few years, 
with good and proper instruction, be a good church, for we have 
a good number of members already for a new field. When I 
came to this place first Brother Walden was doing a good work, 
but since then he has been very sick, but looks for good results 
just the same. 



32 North Carolina Conference 

West Raleigh — J. C. Robbins has no doubt done his best work 
at this point for the people take well to him. This place never 
in all its history had a man to serve them as long as Brother 
Robbins. He has had a great revival this year, and many have 
been received into the church within the last five years (for 
that is the length of time that he has served this people.) Brother 
Robbins and his faithful members have built as good and fine a 
church as one need to have I think. Indeed, we have a great plant 
at West Raleigh. The one needed thing now is a gcod parsonage, 
and with this any one I think would not feel bad because he was 
sent to this point to preach, and with this I think we. would have 
almost an ideal church here. 

Oxford — Albert G. Jenkins. Brother Jenkins has now been 
here at this place for two years. His record is a good one. He 
not only has pastored his own flock, but has helped others. He is 
the one pastor in Oxford. If there are oppositions it is not from 
the people who know and serve the Lord. The church here has 
been enlarged while Brother Newsome was pastor. It has been 
beautified and paid for since Brother Jenkins came to this point. 
Too much cannot well be said to the credit of the man who is 
now pastor here, for God has honored both him and his work 
in this field. 

. . .Pleasant Ridge, Ta. — J. R. McNair, pastor. This is his second 
year at this point, and I must say that Brother McNair has done 
more for the uplift of this people than I know of for that length 
of time; indeed, he is one man who goes at his work it seems 
with all of his powers of mind, will and soul; as a result our 
membership at this point has been built up. The better class of 
white people say that none stand any higher than does J. R. Mc- 
Nair. I am sure that the conditions now at this point are of 
greater moment than they were when I came to this part of the 
field. God bless Brother McNair and his people with further suc- 
cess. 

Portsviouth, Va. — 0. J. Bethea. Brother Bethea seems to hold 
on here at this place. There has not been the progress that I 
thought at first, but I see that he holds on very well. 

Ramseur — R. J. Shipp came to this charge a year ago and it 
seems that Brother Shipp has wrought well here. A good meet- 
ing I think has been had on this charge and many have been 
added to the church. Brother Gillreath pastored this field for a 
good many years and the church at Ramseur was improved ma- 
terially and spiritually and the Shady Grove church was im- 
proved also, for it was at Shady Grove that almost all of the 
people it seems had gone out after that peculiar holiness which 



Fifty- Sixth Session 33 

drives some people not only from their churches, but it seems to 
drive some from their homes, but many of them now have re- 
turned back to their church. 

Reidsville — S. A. Peeler. Brother Peeler I think has done the 
very best that he could have done with our people here. Indeed 
I know that he has put in at this place a real hard year's work 
with some results. Reidsville is a place that has had many min- 
isters. I wish that our people here could see the real situation 
as it is and then awake to their duty and do it; if so the condi- 
tions would be greatly changed. For the last six years Reidsville 
has paid off its debts upon the church and has a very good par- 
sonage lor its pastors. I think that great good could be done here 
it the people would but do their part. 

Reidsville Circuit — D. C. Skeen. I am sure that Brother Skeen 
has done as hard a year's work as any of us; indeed, he has, 
I think, done his best, and I believe that somehow the Lord is 
going to reward him for the way that he has stood by his task 
and has done his part for the Master. The charge is not all 
that it ought to be, but we hope that in the near future it will 
come up in the ranks and be what it really can be. At Camps 
Springs there has been built within the last six years a good 
addition to that church and the c arch at Garretts covered. 

Townsville and Bullocks— Geo. F. Hill came to this work one 
year ago. Will say that I think that Brother Hill has done here 
his best to make this work all that it ought to be, but sowehow it 
is not all th.°* it should be as yet, but we look for better days 
for this work nere. Brother Hill has had some good meetings 
on his charge this year with good results. Within the last 
five years the church at Townsville has been ceiled and some 
good furniture put in and also an organ. At Bullocks the church 
has been furnished with new pews. At Clarksville, Va., we have 
a new church built. All of this work was done while Brother 
Leonard pastored it. 

Wenticorth — E. H. McArthur. Brother McArthur has spent 
one year on this work, and it looks like the right man is in the 
righ f ice. The people have great confidence ir him, for with 
t is -an lead his people to victory. There have been good 

meetings with telling results. The Lord has blessed this field this 
year. During my term there has been a good church built at 
Wentworth. This was built during the pastorate of Brother B. F. 
Thomas, and the one at Settles Grove was built this year by 
Brother McArthur. This is a very good charge. 

Burlington — J. M. Aldridge. I think that Brother Aldridge 
has done his best at this place. I am sure that he has great 



34 North Carolina Conference 

desires to do a great work in the church and I think that he is 
about doing all that he can on this charge. I think that if 
he had the help that is needed he would do much more efficient 
work as a pastor and come forth with some good results. 

And now please let me make these my closing remarks: I 
must say to the credit of both members and friends upon this 
district that they have shown to me all of the respect due to 
a ma n of God and that the treatment given to me by them 
has been all that it should be, and that my prayers will be 
made for them to our Father of all light and goodness. 

Again let me say that I want my successor to far surpass 
me in constructiveness, and that this district may go on to vic- 
tory — more so than it has in the past. 

And now it is left for me to say some things to you that 
some would not say, but I must say that I fear that as a money- 
getter I am n ot all that I should be, but remember that I 
know that there are other things that are or far more value 
than money. There is a deficiency of District Superintendent's 
salary on this district of more than $1,700, yet I thank God that 
I have as much love for the work as though they did not owe a 
penny to me. I am yours in this great work of the Master's 
cause and in His name, S. F. B. Peace. 

WESTERN DISTRICT 

Dear Bishop and Brethren: — Through the goodness of Al- 
mighty God, I am permitted to present to you this my second 
annual report of the Western District. I am happy to express 
my sincere gratitude to God for the many unnumbered blessings 
bestowed upon me during the year ,and the hearty support given 
by the faithful pastors over whom I have the honor to super- 
intend. 

We have worked together without a single discord. It has 
been a source of great pleasure to me to be the leader of these 
noble men on the filed of battle, and to stand at the head of 
the firing line to speak in the name of the Lord. 

It has been our aim to life up the standard of Christ and 
show to the world the better side of life. While we have not 
done all we had hoped to do, we have had blessed fellowship and 
service and made advance along most all lines of work. We have 
urged that each department of the church be kept alive and have 
spent much time in the quarterly conferences and congregations, 
trying to drive home to the hearts of the people the great need 
of more consecrated and active service in our church work. We 



Fifty-Sixth Session 35 

are in need of a greater working force in the church, Sunday 
school and Epworth League, where the foundation for an up- 
right life must be laid. 

However, I am glad to say that the district is in splendid con- 
dition. We have had good revival meetings on most all the 
charges, with many conversions and quite a number of accessions 
to the church. We have been greatly blessed spiritually this 
year. Throughout the district the Spirit of Christ is more in 
evidence than heretofore. The hand of the Lord has lead us 
in ways that we knew not of, and in our darkest hours wo 
have been able to say that "joy cometh in the morning." 

Death has not entered our ranks this year and most all the 
pastors have enjoyed good health, while some of their families 
have suffered a great deal, but in all their afflictions the Lord 
was with them and helped them to continue their work. While 
we have had some sickness, some heart-ache and some troubles, 
we are happy to say the Lord has brought us by His love and 
hides our life above. 

In speaking of our work, permit me to say that I have laid 
special stress upon better ministerial support. Too many of 
our men have to live on starvation salaries. The average sal- 
ary paid on the district last year was a fraction over $346 and 
that included house rent and traveling expense. Some of the 
pastors have to do other work for a living. This is a drawback 
to their ministerial duties, and here something should be done 
to relieve th esituation. We have put forth every effort to have 
the officials work the financial plan, but this is a thing hard to 
do. It will take time and much patience to work this plan i n 
many of our churches. First, because of the old way of taking 
collections. Second, for the want of interest in the new plan, and 
third, for the need of more and better prepared officials who can 
work the plan. In many of our churches the officers are utterly 
unprepared to do the work. In many cases the name is all. 
The man is never able to perform the functions of the office .he 
holds. It is the old way or no way at all. While we need better 
prepared preachers, we need better prepared leaders, stewards 
and trustees, who will take some delight in doing the work 
assigned them. 

Sunday School and Epwoeth League Woek 

The Sunday School and Epworth League Convention was held 
in May at Old Fort, N. C. It was well attended and was indeed a 
great convention. Reports showed that much good work is being 



36 North Carolina Conference 

done among our young people. Some very able papers were 
read by delegates and pastors, which were discussed and proved 
to be quite helpful to all who were in attesdance. It is our aim to 
push the work among the young people and bring them into the 
church by making the Sunday school and the Bpworth League 
more spiritual and attractive. We have urged the pastors and 
Sunday school workers to form home departments and as far as 
they are able see that the lessons are studied in the homes of 
the people. I have also instructed where ten persons can be 
found that a Sunday school be started and the people be gath- 
ered together and taught the word of God. 

DlSTBICT COXFEREXCE 

The District Conference was held at Lawndale, N. C, July 
21-26. This was a great conference. Most all the charges were 
represented. Splendid reports were given of the work done on 
the district along all lines. Friday was welfare day. Prof. N. 
C. Newbold, Superintendent of Rural Schools, made a most stirr- 
ing speech on Education and Better Schools. Prof. Irvin, Coun- 
ty Superintendent of Public Schools, on Better School Houses for 
the Children, and the F it need of the patrons bestirring them- 
selves along the line o education. 

We had with us the following visitors: Rev. H. L. Ashe, 
who presented the cause of the Southwestern Christia n Advocate, 
and secured 37 cash subscribers; Rev. R. W. Winchester, District 
Sat, rintendent of the Winston District, who presented the cause 
of Home Missions and Church Extension; Prof. J. E. Wallace, 
President of Bennett College, who spoke of the work and needs 
of the College, and also spoke at the Welfare Conference on Better 
Homes. All of these brethren made able and helpful addresses. 
In this conference all the local preachers were appointed to do 
mission work. 

Summary 

Asheville — C. K. Brown, pastor. Under the leadership of 
Brother Brown the work at Asheville ' ~ doing well. The mem- 
bership has been increased, they have good ongregations and a 
splendid Sunday school. They are planning to make some im- 
provements on the building. 

Black Mountain — S. B. Cornelius, pastor. Nothing of a^y note 
has been done at this point. 

Buffalo — B. C. Littlejohn, supply. This charge is doing fairly 
well, but not as well as we would like for it to do. They have 
had good revivals and some accessions. 



Fifty-Sixth Session 37 

Boone — W. M. McCorkle, pastor. This point is in fairly good 
condition, being in the mountains as it is, cut off from the railroad 
and the business sections. The people get but little for their 
labor, which makes it hard for our work at this point, yet 
the people are true and tried and stand faithfully by the 
church. 

Cataiuba and Mt. Morn — Henry Fink, pastor. This being a 
new charge, made at the last Conference, has done wonderfully 
well this year. The pastor has lead the people to success, good 
revivals and accessions to the church. 

Cherryville and Kings Mountain — L. P. Burge, pastor. Good 
work has been done on this field and the outlook is bright. 
A.t Kings Mountain they have bought a lot and are plan n ing to 
build soon. The work is in good condition. 

Forest City — -W. M. Crawford, pastor. This is brother Craw- 
ford's fourth year and may it be said to his credit that he stands 
higher in the estimation of his people than at any time during 
the four years. Surely this has been the best of the four. Good 
revivals are reported at all the points with a goodly number of 
accessions. Money has been raised for painting the church and 
other improvements. 

Franklin — L. W. Thomas, pastor. This charge is in the ex- 
treme southwestern part of the state and more than fifty miles 
away from any point on the district. The pastor has not bee n 
able to visit his family since he entered the work last fall. He 
has done the best he could. They have some splendid people 
on this charge and if properly trained a good work can be built 
up at this point. 

Gastonia — N. W. Black, pastor. This has been one of the 
best years in the history of the charge. At Gastonia the church 
has been re-covered and the church at Bessemer City has also 
been re-covered and beautified on the interior, all of which has 
been paid for. They have had splendid revivals and some acces- 
sions. 

Hendersonville and Beaver dam — W. E. Clapp, pastor. The 
pastor has done good work on this charge. At Beaverdam the 
church has been almost completed, the membership more than 
doubled. The work is in splendid shape. 

Hickory — E. I. S. Swan, pastor. This work has never been 
in better condition than at this time. The pastor has proven 
himself to be a safe leader, after whom the people delight to 
follow. A splendid year's work has been done by both pastor 
iind people. 



38 North Carolina Conference 

Jefierson — L. G. McDonald, pastor. This, one of the mountain 
charges, is hard to build up. The people make but little money, 
which makes it hard for the pastor to live on this work, notwith- 
standing the pastor has worked hard and done the best that he 
could under existing conditions. 

JonesvHlle — S. McDonald, pastor. This work is in fairly good 
condition. The debt on the church at Elkin has been paid in 
full this year and some on the debt of the church at Jonesville. 
They are planning to build a new church at New Oakgrove. They 
have some of the material on the ground and some money for 
the work. The pastor works hard to teach his people how to do 
things. 

; Lenoir — B. F. Thomas, pastor. This charge is in fairly 'good 
condition but not doing as well as we had hoped for it to have 
done. The pastor has worked hard to succeed. There has been 
an increase in the membership, also a good revival was conducted 
during the year. Brother Thomas has been faithful to his duty. 

Lenoir Circuit — J .C. Addie, pastor. This charge is in splen- 
did shape. They have had good revivals with some conversions 
and accessions. 

Lincolnton — D. L. Thomas, pastor. This brother came to us 
from the A. M. E. Church. He has proven himself to be a 
men of the hour by taking charge of this small work and bring- 
ing it up to a higher standard than ever before. The work nas 
prospered greatly this year along many lines. 

Lowesville- — S. P. West, pastor. Heroic work has been done on 
this charge by both pastor and people. The church that was de- 
stroyed by fire a year ago has been replaced and is so that ser- 
vice can be held in it. This work has raised more than $500 
for building this year. While the pastor has worked hard for 
upbuilding of the work he did it under the hand of afflictions. 
In the month of July his devoted wife was taken very ill and 
had to be hurried to the hospital for treatment, where she under- 
went a very critical operation, but the hand of the Lord was with 
her, and she is now able to be at her husband's side in the Mas- 
ter's cause. A splendid year's work has been done and the 
charge is in a healthy condition. 

Machpelah — J. J. Blanton. pastor. This work is in fairly good 
condition. They have had splendid revival meetings on 'the 
charge and some accessions. The work is doing well. 
. . .Marion — W. O. Thomas, pastor. Brother Thomas and peo- 
ple have done well and a splendid year's work accomplished. 
At Old Fort the church has been nicely painted and beautified 



Fifty-Sixth Session 39 

on the interior, which gives it quite an inviting appearance. 
Good revivals have been held and some accessions to the church. 
The Sunday School and Epworth League Convention was held 
at this point which was well cared for. 

Marion Circuit — C. L. Stewart, pastor. This charge is in good 
co n dition. The debt on the church at Owen Town has been re- 
duced to about fourty dollars and paid for an organ, leaving the 
church practically out of debt. There have been good revivals on 
the charge with convertions and some accessions. 

Mayheiv — N. S. T. Shamborguer, pastor. This brother and his 
people are doing splendid work. At Morrows, they are building 
a neat little church and have it well on the way, new seats have 
been put in at Hunter's Chapel with other improvements on the 
charge, good revivals and accessions on the charge. 

Newton — W. H. Webster, pastor. The pastor has been faithful 
in looking after the interest of the work. There have been some 
few accessions. The charge is in fairly good condition. 

Shelby and Lawndale — R. B. Rhyne, pastor. Never in the his- 
tory of this charge has it been in better condition than at this 
time. Brother Rhyne, like many others we have on the district, 
is a splendid pastor and preacher, one whom the people love 
and respect and delight to follow. It was at this point we 
held the district conference, which proved to be a great help to 
the people of Lawndale and community. A school at Lawndale, 
known as Douglas Academy, owned by the Congregational church, 
was offered for sale for -1400, with ten acres of land. This being 
the only school of any note near where the people have access 
to, the members of Philadelphia church on the Shelby charge came 
together and bought this property at the priec stated above and 
paid five hundred dollars $500 for the first payment and are cairy- 
ing on the school. They have two good buildings, one with six- 
teen rooms and one with eight rooms, a good barn and other out 
buildings. The object of this school is to be a feeder for Bennett 
College and Allen Home. 

Slierrill's Ford — P. F. Johnson, pastor. This brother has lead 
his people well on to success. They have had splendid revivals 
at all the points on the charge with conversions and accessions. 
Brother Johnson is proving to be a splendid pastor. 

Piney Grove — S. R. Gwyn, supply. This is only a mission 
point. They have some material on the ground for a new church 
and some money on hand for the work. 

Statesville — G. Haven Caldwell, pastor. This young man has 
done good work this year. The charge has never been in bet- 



40 North Carolina Conference 

ter condition than at this time. The church at Philadelphia has 
been re-covered and other improvements made on the charge. 

West Asheville — D. McRae, pastor. But little has been done 
on this charge of any note, but we are hoping for better things 
to take place and the work revived. 

Wilkesboro — W. B. Scales, pastor. This splendid man has com- 
pleted four years' service on the Wilkesboro charge, coming to 
Conference with his people like many of the pastors praying for 
his return. All debts have been fully paid on the churches, 
good revivals have been held on the charge with conversions and 
accessions and the work greatly built up. 

Education 

I have given special attention to the cause of education 
broughout the district. 

Allen Industrial Home, located at Asheville, N. C, is doing 
splentlid work in training our young women for the duties of 
life. Miss Dole, with her able corps of teachers is to be com- 
mended for the great work that is being done in this school for 
our people. Plans have been made for a Deaconess' Home in 
connection with Allen Industrial Home for the training of young 
women for deaconesses work. 

Rural Schools. I have visited quite a number of the schools 
on the district and find many of them without ary accom- 
modation whatever, and being taught by those who are wholly 
unprepared to teach. I feel that if we as ministers would preach 
more of the gospel of better homes and better schools, cleaner 
and better kept churches, better teachers and preachers, and em- 
ploy none but those who can do the work, we will have gone 
a long way toward solving some of the hard problems with which 
we have to contend, for one of the saddest needs of the people 
in the rural districts is better leadership. 

I have presented the cause of Bennett College and urged the 
pastors to stand by the school and give it their hearty support 
in raising money and getting students for the institution. 1 
have endeavored to show the people that it is their school and its 
life depends upon their support, by giving of their means and 
sending their children there to be trained for life's work. 

I have asked all questions required by the discipline to be 
asked in the quarterly conferences in regard to the benevo- 
lences of the church and have urged the people to respond to 
all the causes of the church. 



Fifty-Sixth Session 41 

Southwestern Christian Advocate 

I have tried to show our people the importance of reading 
one of the best church papers in the whole church, namely the 
Southwestern Christian Advocate, edited by one of our own sons 
in the person of Dr. R. E. Jones. 

And now, Mr. President, having given a short sketch of the 
work done on the "Western Distrilt for the year, and while our ef- 
forts may have been feeble, we have tried to be true to the trust 
committed to our care. Led by Him who 'never fails, we stand 
ready to receive our marching orders for another year. 

Respectfully yours in the Master's cause, A. H. NEwsoarE*. 

WINSTON DISTRICT 

Mr. Chairman, Members and Friends of the North Carolina 
Conference: — Through another Conference year the One whom 
we recognize as King of kings and Lord of lords, has guided me. 
I come the second time before you to render an account of my 
stewardship. I esteem it a privilege to stand in the presence of 
this body of God-called men and in a most humble way speak 
of the transactions of the district I represent. This is a great 
district. Her location makes it so. Lying mainly at the foot 
and partly in the Blue Ridge mountains gives it a pure atmos- 
phere. Her sloping plains, sun-kissed mountains and crystal 
streams produce a scenery which we must admire. 

The District Conference 

The District Conference convened at Mt. Airy, in Mallalieu 
Temple, July 8-12, 1914. No pains were spared to make it the 
banner District Conference. We looked after every phase of 
the work. The marked feature of the Conference was our 
distinguished visitors of both Church and State. Dr. I. L. 
Thomas was there full of zeal and fatherly advice. Dr. J. N. C. 
Coggins was there. His eloquence cheered us on to victory. Dr. 
C. C. Jacobs was there, emulating the spirit of Him who sam, 
"Suffer the little children to come, and forbid them not." Dr. 
J. C. Sherrill was there, pleading in the Spirit of a St. Paul, to 
come over into Macedonia and help us. Prof. C. R. Hudson, 
State Agriculturist, was also there, instructing us how to carry 
out that great command God gave Adam — Till the soil. These 
men, as well as our local talent, rendered great and invaluable 
service. The Jubilee Anniversary panned out in cash $85.00; 
vouchers, $32.00; total, $117.00. 



42 North Carolina Conference 

Epworth League, Sunday School and Brotherhood 
Conventions 

Convention convened at Ashboro in St. Luke Methodist Epis- 
copal church, August 12-16, 1914. This gathering of young men 
and women plainly convinced us that our young people, when 
given a chance with the proper encouragement, will do church 
work. Practically every charge on the district was represent- 
ed. Prof. J. A. McRae and his colleagues labored hard to 
bring about this successful convention. 

Our Church Property 

It is to the credit of the district that she has more fine 
church buildings than any other district in the North Carolina 
Conference. I have endeavored as far as feasible to see that 
all deeds and other conveyances of church property in uio 
Winston District conform strictly to the Discipline and the 
laws of the state. Every church is not insured on the district, 
but it is not my fault. I have urged that the church and 
parsonage property be insured. The majority of our church 
property is partially covered with insurance. The valuation has 
been enhanced by the improving of some churches on the district, 
which churches we will mention as we advance in our report. 
One church has been destroyed by fire but insurance was suf- 
ficient to cover losses. There are 22 charges on this district, 
composing 54 churches and preaching places, the approximate 
value being $82,000.00. There are seven parsonages on the dis- 
trict. Their valuation is included in the sum previously stated. 

The Membership 

The report of last year records for this district was 2,839 
members. There has been an increase this year. They are 
a loyal band of members. Every effort to increase the mem- 
bership has been put forth. We are not ashamed of results. 
Total accession, 386. 

Spiritual Status 

This has been a year of revivals on the Winston District. 
Usually we have waited until summer for revival work, but 
this year we waited not for summer but for an opportunity and 
the revival was on. The results are gratifying. The record of 
conversions totalizes 393. We treasure these happy souls as our 
greatest achievement in this conference year. I find it pays finan- 



Fifty-Sixth Session 43 

cially as well as numerically to have a spiritual church. In the 
main you may count on a spiritual church for a large and appre- 
ciative audience, and what money they have you may rest assured 
the gospel will get her pro rata. 

Benevolent Boards 

Great efforts have heen made to promote the interest of 
Foreign Missions, Home Missions and Church Extension, Freed- 
men's Aid, Education, Sunday schools, Conference Claimants, Ep- 
worth League Chapters, Methodist Brotherhood, Temperance and 
Ladies' Aid Societies. While these worthy causes have not had 
the ready support we have so much desired, yet every cause 
to the best of our ability and strength has been fostered and 
helped. We see daily the need of Home Missions and Church 
Extension work, education and Sunday schools. We read daily of 
the great Macedonian cry beyond the seas, "Come over and 
help us." We see the great need of Conference claimants as 
these old veterans of the cross sit awaiting the actions of this 
conference for food and clothes. It has, Mr. President, been 
urged, yea, pressed, upon the heart of our people that religion 
is only active when the great benevolent spirit is swung into 
play. 

Ministerial Support 

There is on the Winston District one charge that pays $1,000.00 
and parsonage. Two pay $650.00; five, $450.00; two, $400.00; two 
$300.00; three, 250.00; two, $150.00; five less than $100.00. While 
most of the charges promise more, these are the actual facts 
pertaining to ministerial support. Pastors with families serve 
these charges. With three exceptions there is not a charge 
that conforms to the Discipline in estimating ministerial sup- 
port. Demands are only reasonable when made in the limit of 
possibilities. In places there are demands made for ministerial 
support and our people have a desire to respond and do -respond, 
but it is meagre by reason of their impoverished condition. After 
paying traveling expenses the poor minister sadly returns to 
his wife about as he left her. Under such unfavorable condi- 
tions the people plead poverty. The minister complains of 
non-support, and can you blame him? But facing conditions 
as they are, what can be done! What's the remedy? I have 
suggested a few ideas to my brethren. One is, don't scold the 
people because they can't pay. Scolding may in some way 
appease our agitated and iritated minister's mind, but it will 
never fill his mouth nor his family's with bread and meat. An- 



44 North Carolina Conference 

other is to adjust ourselves to circumstances and conditions. The 
third and last is, above all things else, contend for the faith 
as delivered unto the saints. And when bread and meat fail at 
the parsonage, God has prepared a raven somewhere for every 
minister of Elijah's faith. This statement is confirmed by a 
man after God's own heart — David — who affirms, "I have been 
young and now I am old, yet I have never seen the righteous 
forsaken nor his seed begging bread." 

Church Ihdeptedxess 

Debts in this district have been reduced to the minimum. 
The great St. Paul at Winston two years ago, groaning be- 
neath a debt of nearly $5,000, rejoices today in that every dollar 
has been paid and that magnificant church stands a monument 
to Methodism. Other churches on this district have done equal- 
ly as well in raising money for building and improvement. The 
church in which I now stand is one of them. There are three 
new churches soon to be erected on the district. 

Undeveloped Territory 

There is much undeveloped territory on the Winston Dis- 
trict. With a little capital we could establish churches that 
would repay the connection in the future. A territory stretching 
from Lexington southward 40 or 50 miles, where no Methodist 
Episcopal churches are established. New towns are springing 
up on the Southbound railroad. Other denominations are erect- 
ing church houses; why not Methodism too? Leaving Stoneville 
going northeast on the Norfolk and Western Railroad we travel 
65 miles before touching a Methodist congregation. Leaving 
Rural Hall, going northwest, on Southern Railway, we pass 
one little Methodist Episcopal church en route to Mt. Airy. 
There are other parts in like condition on the Winston District. 
I plead for a changed condition. What is needed most at the pres- 
ent time is for some God-called men to clothe themselves in the 
Spirit of an Isaiah with the cry, "Here am I, send me." I 
plead for young ministers, that they return more to the pioneer 
spirit of our fathers, who have made this Conference what it is 
today. The pioneer days may be over but I declare to you, 
with emphasis, the pioneer work is not finished. Somebody, 
must yet arise and heed the call — "to Gaza." 

Our Institutions 
Our institutions of learning are constantly sending into the 



Fifty-Sixth Session 45 

Conference and the great church men of influence, fervor and in- 
tellect. But for these institutions our high standard of Christian 
ministry would dwarf and our churches wane. We are proud 
of the work being done at Bennett College, Kent Home and 
Allen Industrial Home. We plead for the maintenance of these 
institutions and have long since pledged them our support. 

Church Literature 

We are very careful in this matter — urging the use and im- 
portance of our church literature. It is essential to the spread 
and growth of Methodism. That one may know the doctrine, 
polity and laws of Methodism he must read his church litera- 
ture. We recommend as a church paper in quarterly conferences 
and from the pulpit, the Southwestern Christian Advocate, edited 
by our friend and brother, Dr. R. E. Jones, whom we regard as 
a great man.

sion. The congregation and pastor have worked hard to meet 
the requirement of the Conference. Conversions, 36; accessions,

on this charge. Excellent work has been done. The pastor 
was sick four months after his appointment, yet with the 
assistance of Rev. Hanes this church met her obligations. The 
church at Oak Grove was burned October 4,1914. Fortunately 



48 North Carolina Conference

of this charge is over $4,000.00 this year, for all purposes. Con- 
versions, 15; accessions, 44. The Rev. H. L. Ashe is the pastor. 

Our Retired Ministers 

The following live quietly in their own homes on the Win- 
ston District: Revs. D. Brooks, G. W. Pryor, S. M. Hanes, E. 
Howard and F. L. Bost. May the distilling dews of evening 
and morning devotion and all the refreshing showers of celes- 
tial grace descend upon them while they remain with us. 

The Honored Dead 

According to quarterly conference records there have been 47 
deaths on the Winston District among our membership. Many 
of these were loyal and staunch members. They were devoted 
to the church of their choice. They will meet us no more 
in Annual Conferences but have left on record to meet them 
in heaven. We expect to meet and know them there. 

Gratitude 

Many thanks to Bishop Henderson for timely advice, sugges- 
tions and plans given us for the betterment of the district. Cer- 
tainly, we regard him as a Christian gentleman, a patriotic 
churchman and a great Methodist. 

Many thanks to my brother colleagues in the ministry for the 
Christ-like spirit they have exercised toward me and mine, and 
too, for the Christian courtesies and mutual co-operation in the 
great work of the Master. 

Many thanks to the officials of the churches for the important 
part they have performed in the advancement of the work. 

Many thanks to our laity, the chief cornerstone of support. 

Thanks to our Great Jehovah, Priest and King, for health, 
guidance and support. 

Yours to serve, R. W. Winchester, D. S. 



Fifty-Sixth Session 49 

program of commission on evangelism 

In view of the rising tide of evangelistic conviction and 
activity throughout our church and the world, we present the 
following: 

Evangelistic Program for Methodism — 1914-1915 

I. Every Day Evangelism 

An all-the-year-round personal work program as outlined in 
the Local Program, entitled "How," published by the Commis- 
sion on Evangelism. 

II. Every Week Evangelism 

An appeal to the ministry of Methodism to present such an 
evangelistic message as will be followed at least once a Sunday 
by a plea for definite decision for Christ in the public congre- 
gation. The practice of inviting people to unite with the church 
at every Sunday service is particularly commended. 

III. Every Year Evangelism 

Once a year a definite period in the church calendar for special 
evangelistic campaign, the methods of which shall be determ- 
ined by the pastor with the Quarterly Conference. 

In the application of these principles we present to Meth- 
odism the following: 

1. Church Home Week 

Thanksgiving Week to be Church Home Week, during which 
the entire local church family and constituency shall be ral- 
lied in daily service. Personal letters of invitation should be 
written to all members, non-resident members and all others 
on the Constituency Roll of the church. 

2. Membership and Constituency Recorded 

In order to prevent a continuance of the appalling loss dur- 
ing the quadrennium of over 400,000 members by removal with- 
out certificate, o which our attention was directed in the 
Episcopal address at 'he last General Conference, every Church 
Record in Methodism should be re-written in the month of De- 
cember. Strict adherence to the disciplinary requirements in 
paragraph 55 should be observed by every pastor in the church. 
In all large cities a membership clearing house should be es- 
tablished, to which notification should be sent to the pastors 
of members moving to that city. The Constituency Roll is com- 
posed of all persons in the community who, on the basis of a 



50 North Carolina Conference 

community census, are by past or present affiliation available for 
membership in our church. This complete constituency should 
be definitely recorded. 

3. Watch Night 

Every church in the Methodist world is summoned to ob- 
serve Watch Night. In 1914 we suggest as an important fea- 
ture of the program the roll call of the entire church member- 
ship. 

4. Evangelistic Campaign 

From New Years until Easter the energies of the church should 
be focused on the usual evangelistic efforts, such as the protract- 
ed meeting following Watch Night, the week of prayer, inter- 
change of pastors, union meetings, gospel team work, or other 
evangelistic plans. Palm Sunday should be observed as Decision 
Day in every Sunday school, and Passion Week services conducted 
in every church, making Easter Sunday a special day of ingath- 
ering throughout the church. 

5. Children's Day 

The obligation of the young people of Methodism to invest 
their lives in sacrificial service for Christ as a life task war- 
rants the request that at one of the public services on Children's 
Day a sermon be preached on "Life Work," such as the gospel 
ministry, home and foreign missionary service, deaconess work, 
and all other allied forms of Christian work. This is the fit- 
ting time to make an appeal to parents to dedicate their chil- 
dren to Christ for special Christian service. 

6. Summer Campaign 

During the summer months to emphasize such forms of evan- 
gelism as tent meetings and, where it is the custom, special evan- 
gelistic campaigns. The country church offers an unusually fruit- 
ful field for evangelistic work, particularly during the summer 
months, and also for the use of approved methods which have 
produced such satisfactory results in towns and cities. 

7. The Key Man 

The feasible plan for carrying this program to the church 
is through its adoption by the District Superintendent and, 
through him, by each local Quarterly Conference. 

8. Lay Evangelism 

It is the spiritual birthright of every child of God to know 
the joy of winning another to Christ. Whenever this challenge 



Fifty-Sixth Session 51 

has been presented to men and women in a definite form, in- 
cluding the name and address of the person to be won for 
Christ, the favorable response has been practically uniform. 
We, therefore, present the responsibility to our pastors to pre- 
pare a complete Constituency Roll and assign these names to 
those willing to undertake this work. We appeal to the mem- 
bership of the church to set apart as a minimum one hour a week 
to be definitely used in winning others to Christ. 




52 North Carolina Conference 

REPORT OF STANDING COMMITTEES 

RESOLUTIONS 

SPECIAL FUND 

Be it Resolved, that the pastors of each charge shall report one 
dollar at each Annual Session for Conference expenses to be 
applied 

First, in providing press service for the Annual Conference. 
Second, in providing stationery, registrar hooks, examination 
paper, certificates for the Board of Examiners and necessary 
stationery for the officers of the Conference. 

Third, the remainder to go to the Minute Fund. 

J. W. Wells. 
R. E. Joxes, 
J. P. Morris, 

EDUCATION 

We recognize that education and religion go hand in hand. 
We also hold that no education is worth the while unless it is 
flavored throughout with Christianity. The school and the church 
are coordinate. They are so interwoven and so interlocked that 
they are inseparable. 

We therefore wish to urge that we, as a Conference, recog- 
nize Bennett College, Allen Home, Gammon Theological Semi- 
nary and any other kindred school within the bounds of the 
North Carolina Conference and our great Methodism, as the chief 
asse to a healthy condition of the church. 

TVe urge that our Conference support the suggestions that 
we arrange a Program of Advance looking to the sustenance 
and support of the above named institutions for the present and 
the 3 J*s that are to come. 

We alsc irge that the great educational interests as support- 
ed by the Board of Education and the Freedmen's Aid Society 
be supported to as large a degree as possible, and that we, in 
the coming year, raise as much of the $4,500.00 Jubilee sub- 
scription as possible.

W. B. Scales,

Fifty-Sixth Session 53 

BOARD OF SUNDAY SCHOOLS 

Whereas, The work of the Board of Sunday Schools is fun- 
damental in perpetuating Methodism to coming generations in 
its mission to give moral and religious instruction to the chil- 
dren; and 

Whereas, The Board of Sunday Schools is primarily the means 
for establishing schools in places where they would not other- 
wise be had; and 

Whereas, We recognize the Board of Sunday Schools as be- 
ing one of the greatest agencies for spreading the gospel and 
the ingathering of youth; be it 

Resolved, That we pledge the Board and its Secretary our 
hearty support and co-operation and insist that every member of 
the North Carolina Conference raise his apportionment. 

W. B. Scales. 

REFORMS

since our last report, we therefore present the following: 

Resolved 1st, That we as ministers of the most progressive 
church on the globe, accept and, as far as possible, carry into 
effect the recommendations of our last report. 

Resolved 2nd, That we earnestly impress upon the fathers and 
mothers the importance of carrying their children to church 
and Sunday school for religious instruction.

necessity of attending and the sin of neglecting prayer and class 
meeting. 

Resolved 4th, That we encourage the use of the plans and 
methods of the church for doing its work. 

Resolved 5th, That we use the Bible under the inspiration of 
the Holy Spirit as the means of bringing the people to Christ.

spirit and work of evangelism.

BOARD OF EDUCATION 

Whereas, Our Heavenly Father has included in Christian 
character the development of the intellect, and, 

Whereas, Our great church, in its consecrated interest and 
sympathy, even before the smoke had cleared away from the 



54 North Carolina Conference 

battlefield, came to us with book and pencil, and has not tired 
all these years, and 

Whereas, The leaders of our race ought to support this cause; 
be it 

Resolved, That we, the members of the North Carolina Confer- 
ence, renew our efforts in bringing about greater results in our 
own Bennett College, Kent Home and Allen Industrial Home, with

Complimentary 

The North Carolina Conference records its conviction that 
the Residential Episcopal Supervision provided for by the Gen- 
eral Conference of 1912 is justified by the practicability, the 
efficiency, and the wisdom of the plan. It has been the good 
fortune of this Conference, with others in the Chattanooga area, 
during the quadrennium, to have the continued Episcopal Su- 
pervision of Bishop Theodore S. Henderson, D. D., LL. D., who, as 
a careful and wise administrator, a sympathetic and brotherly 
leader, a convincing and evangelical preacher has greatly im- 
pressed himself upon us. Bishop Henderson has been congenial, 
approachable, kind, fair, open-minded and open-hearted and 
thereby won from us our full and unreserved confidence and 
warmest love. By his superior leadership, our educational work 
has been quickened, our membership increased and the whole 
work given new impetus and strengthened. We bear this tes- 
timony of our love and confidence and assure Bishop Hen- 
derson of a warm place in our hearts and a hearty welcome when- 
ever he is called to labor among us; and further, we assure 
him that our prayers and best wishes shall follow him where- 
soever he may be. 

Whereas, God, in His allwise providence, has so wonder- 
fully guided and directed our steps through the past year, and 
has so manifested Himself through the Holy Spirit in the 
sessions of this present Conference; be it 

Resolved, That we express a greater determination to trust 



56 North Carolina Conference 

Him, and follow His guidance wherever He may lead than ever 
before. 

Whereas, Bishop Theodore S. Henderson, in his presidency- 
over our deliberations, has so kindly, justly and impartially pre- 
sided, showing the deepest interest in every detail of our work, 
be it 

Resolved, That we express our appreciation for the same, 
and request the Board of Bishops to assign him to the presi- 
dency of this Conference another year. 

Whereas, Judge Benjamin F. Parkham, representing his hon- 
or, the Mayor of the City of Thomasville, delivered so cordial 
and sincere an address of welcome; and 

Whereas, The Rev. D. M. Litaker, of the M. E. Church, 
South, and other white friends, honored us with their pres- 
ence and attention, showing an interest in the welfare of our 
people; therefore, be it 

Resolved, that we acknowledge our appreciation, and solicit 
their continued interest and co-operation in an amicable ad- 
justment of any friction tending to engender improper feeling 
of either race against the other. 

Whereas, The sessions of this Conference have been hon- 
ored with the presence and services of Drs. I. G. Penn, Sec- 
retary of F. A. Society; C. C. Jacobs, Field Secretary of the 
Board of Sunday Schools; I. L. Thomas, Field Secretary of the 
Board of Home Missions and Church Extension; Ezra Clemons, 
of the Board of Conference Claimants; J. N. C. Coggins, of the 
Church Temperance Society; J. L. Fort, of the Finance com- 
mission; J. C. Sherrill, of the Board of Foreign Missions; P. 
O'Connell, representing Gammon Theological Seminary, and Dr. 
Krantz, representing the Book Concern; therefore, be it 

Resolved, That we acknowledge our gratitude, and pledge our- 
selves to stand by the causes which they represent. 

Where, as the Southwestern Christian Advocate is recognized 
acknowledged to be the best official church paper for our peo- 
ple in the world; and 

. Whereas, Its able editor, Dr. R. E. Jones, a member of our 
own body, is acknowledged to be the best Negro editor of the 
world, be it 

Resolved, That we pledge our heartiest co-operation in plac- 
ing the paper within the homes of the 15,000 members of our 
Conference. 

Whereas, The secretaries and their associates have labored so 
faithfully and so well in doing their work without compensa- 
tion; be it 



Fifty-Sixth Session 57 

Resolved, That we tender our gratitude to them for the 
same, and by punctuality and accuracy, assist them in the 
execution of their work. 

Whereas, The pastor of this church has labored so assiduously, 
assisted by his loyal members, to present to the Conference 
this beautiful edifice; and 

AVhereas, The members and friends of this church have so 
cordially received and so efficiently entertained our Conference 
here; be it 

Resolved, That we extend our compliments to the pastor, and 
our appreciation to the members and friends for the same.

W. H. Webster. 

Conference Claimants 

Whereas, The General Conference of 1912 requested the church 
to celebrate during this quadrennium the Sesqui-Centennial of 
the founding of Methodism in America by raising Five Million 
Dollars for permanent investments of Annual Conferences and the 
Permanent Fund of the Board of Conference Claimants for the 
support of Retired Ministers and other Conference claimants; and 
the bishops, the peerless leaders of Methodism, at their semi-an- 
nual meeting in Washington in October, made an appeal and ad- 
dress to the church, calling upon all Methodism to set aside the 
year 1915 for the purpose of raising these Five Million Dollars 
and so meeting what the Convention of Methodist Men at Indiana- 
polis declared to be the supreme claim of the retired minister to a 
"comfortable support; " therefore, be it 

Resolved, That we unite with the other Annual Conferences of 
our beloved Methodist Church in this great movement for the "bet- 
ter support of Conference Claimants by raising an Endowment 
Fund for the claimants of our own Conference. 

Resolved, That a Commission to be known as the Commission 
on Permanent Endowment, be appointed by the Cabinet at this 
session of the Annual Conference, to be composed of the district 
superintendents, one pastor and one layman from each district, 
which Commission shall have full charge of raising this Endow- 
ment Fund, shall set the time of beginning the canvass, shall fix 
the amount of endowment to be raised and shall determine the 
ways and means of raising the same. 

Resolved, That we believe the time has come when the law of 



58 North Carolina Conference 

the Discipline should be observed and that this Conference appor- 
tion a sufficient sum to the charges for the support of Conference 
Claimants so that each claimant shall receive the full and equit- 
able amount established by the Discipline. We urge the careful 
observance by the Quarterly Conference of the law of the church 
relating to the raising of funds for claimants as a part of the budg- 
et for ministerial support, and of properly pro-rating the same.

FIFTY-SEVENTH SESSION 33 

V. REPORTS OF DISTRICT SUPERINTENDENTS 



GREENSBORO DISTRICT 

One year ago we were assigned to the Greensboro District, 
which we found in growing condition. You will not be surprised, 
therefore, to know that we are larger than a year ago, for we are 
still growing. 

God has wonderfully blessed us this year in that there has 
been no deaths in our active ministerial ranks and but little sick- 
ness in our families. We have been blessed along spiritual lines. 
With good health, good courage and faith in our work and in 
Him for whom we worked, we have pushed the battle to the gates 
and imprisoned the enemy. 

The Greensboro District comprises the Piedmont section of 
North Carolina, and the tidewater section of Virginia. We 
have 22 appointments, 42 church edifices, 46 Sunday schools and 
28 active Epworth Leagues., 

With the former District Superintendent in the van as was 
fitting for him, believing in humanity, believing in Methodism, 
and believing in God, our preachers went forth from the closing 
session of our last Conference with a consecrated spirit, deter- 
mined to succeed. How well they have wrought their reports will 
tell. All of them have done faithful work, and many of the 
charges have increased numerically and financially. On the 
whole there will be an increase in ministerial support and also 
in the benevolences this year. 

Persona! Mention 

We deem it unnecessary to mention each brother and his 
charge in detail. Suffice it to say that all of them have wrought 
nobly and have met the requirements in a Christ-like manner. 

New Financial Plan 

We are hoping, praying and working to see the day when 
there will be as much business demonstrated in the financial 
affairs of our church as there is in other lines of our life work, 
but it is hard to get our churches to see that system is business 
and without it we must fail in our work. Yet, we have suc- 
ceeded in having our new financial plan adopted in several of 
our charges and in each one the success is admirable. We think 
that in the near future the house-to-house canvass for both min- 
isterial support and benevolences will be the acknowledged suc- 
cessful plan for our District. 



34 NORTH CAROLINA CONFERENCE 

Conference Claimants 

We have urged that the local Conference claimants fund be 
raised in proportion to the other ministerial support. We have 
also urged upon the brethren the necessity of establishing a fund 
for the benefit of our own Conference, and to this end the 
Minister's Relief Association has been advanced. 

Education 

Our District is located at the Athens of the state. Greens- 
boro, Guilford County, is an educational center for both races. 
In our county we have four colleges and two high grade acad- 
emies for the whites and three colleges and two academies for 
the negroes; besides we have the best public school system of 
any county in the state. Among the colleges is our own beloved 
Bennett. During this year there has been erected on the cam- 
pus of Bennett College by the members of this Conference and 
our church in this state, a home for the president, costing over 
$3,000. This is a monument to the loyalty of our constituency 
and preachers. Through all of her vicissitudes Bennett has never 
proven second in her work done to any negro college of the 
state. Her graduates are blessing nearly every state in the 
South, and she stands at the head of the list of our colleges 
in furnishing college graduates for the ministry at Gammon 
Theological Seminary. Any Methodist ashamed of the work of 
Bennett College is ignorant of her history. We are still doing 
a great work at Bennett College and Kent Home, but there are 
some things that we as Methodists and supporters of the school 
need to look into. We have on roll at present 254 students — five 
in the college course; ninety-four in the college preparatory and 
normal courses, and 149 in the grades, the first four grades being 
eliminated. We are finding friends daily from among our leading 
city institutions. The Chamber of Commerce has consented to 
devise ways and means to furnish the school with a central heat- 
ing plant. The State Normal College for Girls contributed enough 
carpet to cover the steps and rooms of the girls' dormitory. Prof. 
Windsor obtained by subscription enough money to equip a class 
room with 35 new, up-to-date desks. The entire faculty seems 
to be working for the general uplift of the institution. 

Our Children's Day and Lincoln Day were observed and col- 
lections taken. 

Epworth League 

Our young people are taking on new life. Our District Presi- 
dent and First Vice-President have recently conducted an evan- 
gelistic campaign on the Greensboro charges with wholesome 
results. Win-my-chum Week was observed by every League on 



FIFTY-SEVENTH SESSION 35 

the District. The program mapped out for the year is dynamic 
and good results are following. 

Sunday Schools 

Our Sunday schools are hand in hand with our Leagues and 
behind them all are our pastors lending their influence and giv- 
ing a vigorous impetus to the entire movement. 

Temperance 

Our Sunday schools and Leagues, as well as our churches, 
emphasize the necessity of total abstinence. Dr. J. N. C. Cog- 
gin, our noble temperance man, has done excellent work among 
us and we are rapidly learning that temperance forms a part 
of our religion. 

Church Literature 

Among our necessities is the Southwestern Christian Advo- 
cate. We have urged that all of our officers and heads of fam- 
ilies become subscribers to this excellent paper. October 31st 
was Southwestern Day over the entire district. We hope that 
every charge met the requirements. 

Improvements 

This has not been a year of very great material improvements, 
yet there have been over $2,000 worth of improvements made. 
The following points have much improved the apperance of their 
churches, viz., Holmes Grove, Goshen, Raleigh's, Collins Grove, 
Townesville and Clarksville, Va. At Burlington we have built 
a new church, under the leadership of Brother J. M. Aldridge, 
worth at least $1,000. We are growing in grace, as is shown by 
our cleaning up policy and general improvements at all the 
points. 

Our Needs 

In the tide-water section of Virginia we need only to offer 
the people the proper inducements in order to save them to our 
church and to God. There are thousands of people there who 
are not constituents for any church. If we had sufficient church 
edifices to care for them many, many souls would find their 
way to righteousness. We are not intruders at Norfolk and 
Newport News, Va., neither at Henderson, N. C. The people need 
us, the field is inviting. With $15,000 a great work could be done 
at these three points whose financial value would be a paying 
asset and whose value otherwise cannot be written in dollars 
and cents. 



36 NORTH CAROLINA CONFERENCE 

Evangelism 

Early in the year we adopted the program of the Methodist 
Forward Movement and put out 500 Time Legion Cards, the 
greater portion of which were signed by the members of the 
church. In order to carry out this program we organized a Min- 
isterial Mutual Assistance League. This enabled us to conduct 
the special evangelistic service without a very great cost for 
help. It also assured us of sufficient help when our meetings be- 
came warm and the fight against satan and sin the hottest. The 
results are marvelous. We have made an increase of as high as 
25 per cent, at some points, and where the constituency allowed 
it no point has fallen below a 10 per cent. gain. The total increase 
on our district this year has been 400 souls. 

We have fought against some odds this year, but on the whole 
we have gained ground along the entire battle front. Our gener- 
als, the preachers, and their captains, the official laymen, have 
increased their munition supplies and are nerved for a harder 
fight. So we expect to take more advanced grounds another 
year. Respectfully submitted, 

J. P. Morris, District Supt. 

WESTERN DISTRICT 

Dear Bishop and brethren of the North Carolina Annual Con- 
ference: — Through the providence of our Heaven^ Fahter, I am 
permitted to present to you this my third annual report of the 
Western District. Having been blessed with good health 1 iidve 
been able to look after all the interests of the district. I am happy 
to state that the district is in splendid condition. The men on 
the field have been faithful and true to their trust, working hard 
for success, which has been in evidence on most all the charges. 
Great stress has been put on the Forward Movement of the church 
along all lines. First, a revival on every charge and in every 
church. We are thankful to report that most all the charges 
have had splendid revivals, with quite a number of conversions 
and accessions to the church. The co-operative plan has been 
adherred to, which has proven to be a soul-saving plan. It has 
brought together the divided membership into one mighty host, 
working for the salvation of souls. Endeavoring to follow the 
advice given by our much beloved and highly esteemed Bishop 
T. S. Henderson, D. D., LL. D., the revival fire has been burn- 
ing all the year. 

Decision Day 
This day was observed on a goodly number of the charges. 
We note in one of these meetings sixty-seven came forward and 



FIFTY-SEYEXTH SESSION 37 

professed faith in Christ and decided to live the better life. 

Church Membership 

I have given special attention to the membership of the 
church. It is sad while it is true, that we have lost a great many 
members by not keeping correct records of our membership. 
In many cases we find no record at all save that kept by the 
recording steward. No one could tell members from probationers. 
We have taken the matter up with the pastors, some of whom 
bought records and are giving the matter greater care. 

Sunday School 

This cause has greatly improved during the year. We have 
urged the pastors and superintendents to give more attention 
to the children, by forming them into classes for religious train- 
ing and securing better teachers, and to introduce the Adult Bible 
Class, Home Department and Cradle Roll, which has been done 
on some of the charges. 

Epworth League 

This work is not what it should be and will not be until we, 
the ministers, take greater interest in the work ourselves, whose 
duty it is to see that all the machinery of the church is kept in 
motion. While there is some good work being done, much more 
is needed. 

Education 

The cause of education has been carefully looked after. We 
have urged the people to take greater interest in the education 
of their children, by giving more to the cause of education 
and in securing better teachers and better school houses. 
Allen Home for Girls 

This school is doing a most excellent work in the training 
of the young women for life work. That sainted lady Miss A. 
B. Dole and the faithful women who are associated with her, 
need to be commended by all for the work they are doing for 
God and the race. Connected with this school is the Deaconess 
Training School for our people, presided over by Miss Ruby 
Craig. This work has started off well and should have the 
hearty support of the Conference. This is the only Deacon- 
ess Training School in the church for our people. 

Bennett College 

We have advocated the cause of Bennett College throughout 
the district, and have urged pastors and people to rally to the 



38 NORTH CAROLINA CONFERENCE 

support of the institution by raising money for its maintenance 
and sending their children there and paying their bills in full. 
The college has our support. 

Douglas Academy 

Known as the District School of the Western District, opened 
Nov. 14th with Rev. W. M. Crawford, principal. The school 
is doing well, and if properly conducted will fill a long felt 
want in the community where it is located. 
Temporal Work 

Five churches are being built which can be used for service. 
Two new parsonages and a number of other parsonages and 
churches have been improved. 

Temperance 

We have advocated the temperance cause on all the charges 
and preached on the subject. I am urging the pastors to 
preach temperance in all their congregations and to allow 
none to hold offices in the church who indulge in strong drink. 

Dear Bishop and brethren, Avhile we have not won all the 
victories that we wished to win, we have stayed on the field 
of battle, without beating a retreat, we have kept our faces 
to the enemy. In His name we have done our best. 

Yours for the Master's cause, A. H. Newsome. 

WILMINGTON DISTRICT 

Dear Bishop and Brethren: — The year through which we have 
just passed has been one of great depression. The Great War, 
the Mexican War and the war imminent everywhere have cast 
gloomy shadows over everybody and everything. The effects of 
this direful situation have been keenly felt on the Wilmington 
District. 

The section of the state in which this district lies is known 
as the "Cotton Belt." Here the one crop system is largely in 
vogue. The disadvantages of this system became very apparent 
last fall, when there was almost no market for cotton at half 
the price it cost to produce it. "King Cotton" lay paralyzed 
along the roads and in old barns and in deserted places of 
business, while panic prevailed. The calamity which followed 
brought suffering to many of our members. By giving up all 
their crop, some could not pay their rents and settle their ac- 
counts. They have lived through the past summer on credit. 
Good crops, somewhat diversified, have furnished some relief, 



FIFTY-SEVENTH SESSION 39 

Dut it will require several years of good yield and good market 
to restore normal conditions. 

Every interest of the church has been looked after and every 
cause has been presented. We have not been able to meet every 
requirement, but if, in considering what we have to report, the 
struggle under which it has been accomplished be taken into 
account, the year has been one of great success. Some work 
worthy of special mention has been done at each place, but 
since the temporal betterments and the spiritual growth will 
appear in' the tabulated reports I pass over that. 

We have extended the work by organizing churches at Red 
Banks and at Rennert. Extending our church in this area is 
attended with great difficulty. Most of the people of Methodist 
persuasion belong to the African or the Zion Methodist church. 
Usually when our members move into a place where we have no 
church they join one or the other of the Methodist churches 
rather than organize one of our own denomination. The Afri- 
can and the Zion Methodist churches are both very strong and 
influential throughout the bounds of the Wilmington District. 

The spiritual condition of the work has not dropped to 
the low level of the financial and material depression but has 
kept well up to the high water mark of former times. All the 
churches had good revivals. The Methodist Forward Move- 
ment has been adopted by all the quarterly conferences and as 
a result many have been converted and added to the church. 
„ Our Sunday schools are in fairly good condition. All of them 
use our own literature. Most of them are organized into mis- 
sionary societies. They are being organized into temperance 
societies. The Home Department is not attempted. At all the 
quarterly conferences I have tried to emphasize the importance 
of observing the rules respecting the instruction of children. 

The Epworth League prospers at several points. We are 
hoping that there will be a great revival in the League work 
all over the district. The Epworth League and Sunday Con- 
vention, held at Lumberton, was a success. 

About two-thirds of our churches and quite all of our par- 
sonages are properly insured. The excellent financial showing 
that our churches make is to be wondered at when the meth- 
ods for raising church funds is considered. The public col- 
lection is most largely depended upon for raising money, and 
when that fails rallies are resorted to, the carrying out of which 
often brings the church to compromises with the world that are 
hurtful to the church. Noteworthy efforts are being made to 
change these unsystematic and hurtful devices to the systematic 
and helpful. 



40 NORTH CAROLINA CONFERENCE 

The pastors, the local preachers and the laity generally have 
heen loyal and faithful. Two of our retired ministers, W. P. 
Hayes and J. D. Hairston, live on this district. They are 
both monuments to the saving power of Jesus and furnish whole- 
some examples of the pious life. They are in good health. 

I have visited nearly all the charges four times. All the 
churches except two have been visited. It was my pleasure 
to be present at six of the revivals. I am grateful for the 
harmony and good will that prevail over the district. There 
is hearty co-operation on the part of all. S. A. Peeler. 



V/INSTON DISTRICT 

Mr. President, members and friends of the North Carolina 
Conference: — Under the Divine guidance and support of the 
Most High, I humbly rise, begging leave to submit to you my 
third annual report of the Winston District. Although I was 
stricken very ill one month after Conference and was not able to 
be on the field for two months, yet I have many reasons to 
be gracious to Almighty God for the innumerable blessings be- 
stowed upon me and mine. My brother ministers and friends 
were especially kind to me during those days of illness. Words 
are inadequate to express to them my gratitude.

The District Conference convened at Kernersville July 14th, 
1915. There was made every effort necessary for ideal enter- 
tainment. The attendance was exceedingly large. The work 
done was solely in keeping with the Discipline of the church. We 
were honored with distinguished visitors the Revs. Dr. R. E. 
Jones and I. L. Thomas. These men have long since endeared 
themselves upon the Winston District because of the whole- 
some advice they impart to us. 

District Convention 

The Epworth League, Sunday School and Brotherhood Con- 
vention convened in Madison August 11, 1915. This was a 
fitting climax to all previous conventions on this district. The 
attendance was surprisingly large, cut the hospitalities and cour- 
tesies were equal to the occasion. Many visiting friends were 
there, among whom was President J. E. Wallace, of Bennett 
College, who rendered invaluable service. Much credit is due 
Prof. J. A. McRae for this excellent convention. 



FIFTY-SEVENTH SESSION 41 

The Methodist Forward Movement 
My definition of the Forward Movement is to talk about 
Christ frequently and loudly. This we have done on the Win- 
ston District. Y\ 7 e have talked Him as a dear friend; we have 
talked Him as a great physician; we have talked Him as a 
superb teacher, and we have talked Him as a soul redeemer, 
all without stammering. We believe a revival is brought 
about in any church or community when enough people can be 
depended upon to talk freely about the cardinal truths of Christ. 
In this movement I have urged that we talk primarily about 
Christ, not about the eloquent minister, not about church music, 
not about money, not about coming to church or Sunday school, 
not about subscriptions to building funds, church periodicals 
nor benevolences. These are all worthy, these are all essential 
to the carrying on of the work of the Kingdom of Christ, but 
this is a campaign of a conversation about Christ. There is an 
adage, "Strike while the iron is hot." There should be another 
to go with it, "Strike until the iron is hot." Our cry upon this 
district is to speak out for Christ until religion is at high tide. 
Already much has been accomplished along this line. 

Our Institutions 

We observe progress in this important branch of the church. 
Bennett College, which is being ably and judiciously managed 
by President J. E. Wallace, still shines as a beacon light to 
the Conference and as a house of knowledge for all who may 
seek her quarters. 

Kent Home has never done better work than now. Mrs. 
Donelson deserves credit and support in her great effort for 
the elevation of our young women. 

Miss Dole, at Allen Industrial Home, is not one whit in the 
rear in doing effective work for our girls. She is giving her 
very life for the salvation of young womanhood. 

Gammon Theological Seminary is ever kept before our young 
men who are seeking the ministry. 

As a district, we pray continually for the presidents, super- 
intendents, matrons and teachers in our institutions, that they 
may have Divine wisdom, faith and strength for their respon- 
sible positions. We pray also that the students in all our schools 
may be led to Jesus Christ and trained for intelligent leader- 
ship among their people. 

Women's Activities 
Be it said to the credit of the women of this district that 
they endeavored to co-operate heartily with the District Su- 



42 NORTH CAROLINA CONFERENCE 

perintendent and pastors in the vital interests pertaining to 
church work. We say it without hoast or flattery and in due 
courtesy to the women of the other districts, that the women of 
the Winston District do more real work for the advancement 
of Christ than any other district in the Conference. They go 
about the Master's work intensely filled with the music of glad- 
ness, the sunshine of love, the white light of truth, the bright- 
ness of hope, the tenderness of charity and the strength of faith 
of a once crucified Redeemer. 

Benevolent Boards 

This is a cause we never forget to place before the people. 
Individually, we have presented the cause and merit of every 
board. Collectively, we have advocated the maintenance and 
fostering of the benevolent spirit throughout the district. In 
our opinion there is nothing in domestic life more Christ- 
like than Christian giving. The Boards of Foreign Missions, 
Home Missions and Church Extension, Freedmen's Aid, Edu- 
cation, Sunday Schools, Conference Claimants, Epworth 
League chapters, Methodist Brotherhood, Temperance and Ladies' 
Aid Societies have all been encouraged at our hands. I have 
urged the maintenance of Sunday schools and the organization 
of new ones, and have appointed on this district such a part 
of the total amount assessed by the Annual Conference for the 
Board of Sunday Schools as properly belongs to this district. 

The Book Concern 

Realizing that the purpose of this concern is to promote 
Christian education, the dissemination of moral and religious 
literature and the spread of Christianity, to benefit the traveling 
supernumerary and retired preachers, we have stood by the 
cause. Oh, the great needs that stare in the face some of our 
retired ministers, widows and children of this Conference! And 
if their pitiful cry is relieved it must be done largely through 
this medium of the church. 

Under this topic, we plead intensely for the growth and 
spread of the Southwestern Christian Advocate. We hail men 
and call their attention to this great church paper, begging 
them to subscribe and read this, the greatest church paper pub- 
lished by our race. This is said to the credit and heartfelt respect 
of that sane, efficient, untiring and magnanimous-spirited editor, 
Dr. R. E. Jones. 

Ministerial Support 

We long to see the day when every minister of the gospel who 
receives an appointment may in return receive a ministerial sup- 



FIFTY-SEVENTH SESSION 43 

port for himself and family. The majority of the ministers do 
not receive adequate support. I say this with no reflection 
upon the stewards and members of our respective churches, for, 
Mr. President, the most of them contribute when, what they 
give is really needed in their homes as bad or even worse than 
at the parsonage. But that does not relieve needy conditions. 
Both parties in need does not help the situation, but rather 
adds more distress. Here is a problem I am utterly unable 
to solve. In many communities sparcely inhabited they plead 
for a minister, saying that they have souls to be saved as 
well as densely settled sections. While this is true, they cannot 
support a minister. The Missionary Society seems not to be 
able to appropriate the needed amount for all these much needed 
communities. Now, one of two things must be done: We must 
either turn a deaf ear to those people justly crying in the spirit 
of Macedonians, or send a minister there to suffer. There are 
many places on this district where the minister complains to 
me, saying, "I can't make it on the salary." And when that 
dear wife of his has done the very best she could to give a sat- 
isfactory meal, she lingers long, waiting for the absence of her 
husband that she may quietly inform the District Superintendent 
that while the people are doing what they are able, she is by 
no means comfortably situated. It is not my business to dic- 
tate to the' parent Board of Missions, but I do feel, Mr. Presi- 
dent, that it is my duty to inform the Board of the needy con- 
ditions of the field and that the amount apportioned to this 
district meets about half of the needy conditions. However, our 
prayer is to the King of kings to speed the day when men every- 
where shall have the gospel preached to them and that the 
ministers who carry it may receive a comfortable support. 

In Loving Memory 

Many of our members have passed away this Conference 
year, among whom was the widow Smith, a claimant of this 
Conference. She deeded her property to her local church at 
Lexington, N. C. These loved ones are gone, yet they leave a 
lasting impression upon their friends and relatives. We hope to 
meet and greet them in a land where "God shall wipe all tears 
from their eyes and there shall be no more death, neither sor- 
row nor crying, neither shall there be any more pain, for the 
former things are passed away." 

Retired Ministers 

I should consider myself ungrateful to the aged were I to 
finish this report without saying something about these veterans 



44 NORTH CAROLINA CONFERENCE 

of the Cross. Five of them live on this district, viz., Revs. S. 
M. Hanes, D. Brooks, E. Howard, G. W. Pryor and F. L. Bost. 
We pray that they may remain long with ns for the radiant light 
and life they reflect upon us. They are the Seraphim, light 
burners, lovers of light and knowledge upon the Winston District. 
Being filled, enriched and beautified with the token of God's 
special presence, they are ever ready to manifest and cele- 
brate His glory. 

Commendations 

To Bishop Wilson: We are especially delighted to have you 
with us. We hail you as our friend and brother in the ministry. 
This is our first formal meeting, yet we have heard and read 
of your great knowledge and ability. But, like the Queen of 
Sheba's visit to Solomon, we have already discovered that 
we have not read nor heard of half your great knowledge and 
ability. 

To my colleagues in the ministry: I extend to you commen- 
dations. Dare would I resume my seat without pinning a rose 
of appreciation upon you for your loyalty to me and mine, and 
the manifestations shown in the great uplift of humanity. I 
commend the general officials of the church for the important 
part they have performed in the advancement of the work. I 
commend the laity for their broad-hearted and unstinted sup- 
port. 

Finally 

In conclusion: As watchmen, the ministers have sounded 
the alarm against sin and vice. We long to see that golden 
candlestick that revealed itself to the Prophet Zachariah in de- 
fense of Zerrubabel in the Judean plains as a token of victory, 
come and shine upon the Winston District until she blossoms as 
the rose. And we are resolved: "For Zion's sake we will not 
hold our peace and for Jerusalem's sake we will not rest until the 
righteousness thereof go forth as brightness and salvation as a 
lamp that burneth," until the earth be joyful, the songsters of the 
mountains spring upon their feet and with harps of thanksgiving, 
they join the chorus that shall be responded to by the Angels, 
and until the morning stars shall sing together and al) the sons 
of God shout for joy. I am 

Yours in his name, 

R. W. Winchester, D. S.

REPORT OF STANDING COMMITTEES 



SUNDAY SCHOOLS 



Whereas, The Board of Sunday Schools has for its object to 
create and establish Sunday schools where there are none, and 
to strengthen and enlarge the facilities of the Sunday schools 
already established, 

Resolved, Thai we, the pastors of the N. C. Conference, shall 
give this Board our hearty and unstinted support. 

W. Ellison, 
E. I. S. Swan. 

AMERICAN BIBLE SOCIETY 

Yvhereas, We recognize the fact that of all societies, the 
American Bible Society is one of the great agents in spreading 
the Word of God, which is a light to our feet and a lamp to our 
path; therefore, be it 

Resolved, That we, the preachers of the North Carolina Con- 
ference, s^and by this worthy cause, by faithfully presenting it to 
our people. Respectfully submitted, 

J. C. Robbins, 
R. J. Shipp, 
B. F. Thomas. 

REFORMS 

Whereas, The Methodist Episcopal Church, with her humble 
birth, has marched from the narrow confinements of her birth to 
the front rank of the great religious denominations of the 
world; therefore, we, the ministers and teachers in this great 
church, resolve: 

First, That we will never stop crying aloud until we shake off 
every false notion that cleaves to so many people concerning 
the true methods of doing things. 

Second, That we will hold to the Word of God as the lever 
with which souls are to be lifted from sin and misery, rather 
than the slapping of hands and the patting of feet. 

Third, That the Sunday school teachers co-operate in bringing 
about the much needed reform in their schools. 

Fourth, That we stand by the church in all her forward 
movements concerning the salvation of the world. 
Respectfully submitted, 

S. McDonald, 
S. L. May, 
J. W. Jones. 



46 NORTH CAROLINA CONFERENCE 

SUNDAY OBSERVANCE 

Whereas, we are taught in the Holy Scriptures to remember 
the Sabbath day to keep it holy; and, 

Whereas, the keeping of the Sabbath is a high expression 
of our deep consecration to God and loyalty to the teaching of 
Jesus Christ; be it 

Resolved, That we, the members of the N. C. Conference, 
urge our people throughout the bounds of our great Conference 
to a more strict observance of the Sabbath. 
Respectfully submitted, 

W. M. Wells, 
S. R. McCorkle, 
D. C. Skeen. 

BOARD OF EDUCATION 

We recognize that education and religion go hand in hand. 
We also hold that no education is worth the while unless it is 
favored throughout with Christianity. The school and the church 
are co-ordinate. They are so interwoven and so interlocked that 
they are inseparable. We, therefore, wish to urge that we, as 
a Conference, recognize Bennett College, Allen Home, Gammon 
Theological Seminary and other kindred schools within the 
bounds of the North Carolina Conference, and our great Meth- 
odism as the chief assets to a healthy condition of the church. 
We urge that our Conference support the suggestions that we 
arrange a program of advance, looking to the sustenance and 
support of the above named institutions for the present and the 
years to come. 

We also urge that the great educational interest as sup- 
ported by the Board of Education and the Freedmen's Aid Society 
be supported to as large a degree as possible, and that we, in the 
coming year, raise as much of the $4500 Jubilee subscription 
as possible. 

W. B. Scales, 
G. W. Byers, 

TEMPERANCE 

We rejoice in the wonderful progress of the anti-liquor 
movement during recent months and years. Two-thirds of the 
counties and over one-third of the states in the union are 
now under prohibition law. Over one-half the people in the 
United States live under a no-license umbrella. We believe 
that under the leadership and favor of God, the time is not far 
distant v/hen constitutional prohibition will make this a sa- 
loonless nation and the stars and stripes a stainless flag. 



FIFTY^SEVENTH SESSION 47 

We most heartily endorse the plans and work of the Methodist 
Temperance Society, under the leadership of the Rev. Clarence 
True Wilson, D. D., and urge that every pastor do his utmost 
to raise his apportionment for its support in full. We also urge 
most emphatically that every pastor in the North Carolina Con- 
ference unite enthusiastically in the society's plans for organi- 
zation of Sunday schools into temperance societies, and pledge 
all Methodists to be total abstainers. 

We are delighted with the success attained by the Rev. J. 
N. C. Coggin in the temperance society work, and recommend 
that our pastors co-operate with him in the work among our 
people. 

Resolved, therefore, that we will stand by and support the 
great movement — the temperance cause. 

G. W. Morehead, 

N. S. T. Shamborguer, 

J. A. Laughlin. 

FREEDMEN'S AID 

We, the committee of the Freedmen's Aid and Jubilee move- 
ment, beg to make the following report: 

Whereas, The Methodist Episcopal Church has been working 
with untiring zeal to remove the shackle of ignorance and to 
bring to the sons of the freedman the light of Christian civi- 
lization; and, 

Whereas, Bennett College, Kent and Allen Homes stand out 
against ignorance and for the higher education of the sons and 
daughters of the freedman; and, 

Whereas, Secretary Penn has so well filled his office in 
raising money for this great cause; be it 

Resolved, That the members of the N. C. Conference pledge 
to give our co-operation and support to the movement by con- 
tinuing to push with untiring zeal every effort to meet our obli- 
gations. Respectfully submitted, 

Noah M. Black, 

W. M. Crawford, 

N. S. T. Shamborguer. 

ALLEN HOME 

As visitors, appointed by the last session of the North Caro- 
lina Conference to the Allen Industrial Home School, located at 
Asheville, N. C., it is our pleasure to make the following report 
of our observations and impressions: 

The high ideals of the school, the beauty of the location and 
buildings, the work of the faculty in giving to the church and 



48 NORTH CAROLINA CONFERENCE 

race well equipped young women, thoroughly prepared for further 
study or for the practical tests of life, were never more in evi- 
dence than at the present time. 

We were pleased to note the thoroughness of the work 
done and the marked improvement and individual strength and 
bearing of the student body, and the fine moral and religious 
sentiment pervading the whole school. 

The splendid work of the faculty commends the school to 
all who desire the best for our girls. The course of study has 
been raised and provides suitable preparation for admission to 
the best colleges and universities in the South. The graduates 
of the institution experience no difficulty in passing the state's 
examination for teachers. At the Buncombe County Examina- 
tion held last summer for teachers, the highest percentage 
made by any of the many applicants for license to teach, was 
made by a recent graduate of Allen Home. Some of these appli- 
cants were graduates of the largest and best schools of the South. 

The Bible is taught as a part of the regular course. Daily 
religious services are held in the school's beautiful chapel. To 
all this is added the careful personal supervision of Miss Alsie 
B. Dole, who for almost a generation has been the devoted and 
wonderfully efficient superintendent of the institution. 

We were pleased to note also that many important improve- 
ments have recently been made. The buildings have been reno- 
vated within and without, shower baths and all the conven- 
iences usually found in a modern, up-to-date school for girls, have 
been installed. 

It gives us pleasure to report that the proposed Deacon- 
ess Training School for the special training of young women for 
Christian work, is now a reality. The school is in operation 
in connection with Allen Home. Miss Ruby Craig, a graduate of 
the famous Kansas City Training School for Deaconesses, is the 
preceptress in charge. Associated with her is Miss Rose White, 
a specialist in kindergarten methods. These ladies have the im- 
mediate supervision of this school. We found the course of study 
to be comprehensive and thorough, the young women in training 
of earnest purpose and deep consecrtaion. 

It is the conviction of the committee that, morally, spiritually 
and intellectually considered, there is no better school for girls 
to be found anywhere than at Allen Home. The committee finds 
no hesitancy in commending Allen Home to the confidence of 
Methodism and to the Christian public everywhere.

FIFTY-SEVENTH SESSION 49 

COMPLIMENTARY 

Whereas, This session of the North Carolina Conference has 
been one of such intense interest and gracious benefits to the 
ministers and to the laity, because of the able and courteous 
manner in which Bishop Luther B. Wilson has administered the 
affairs of this Conference, notwithstanding the stress and con- 
tinuous strain of numberless items of business clamoring for 
attention from first to last; therefore, be it 

Resolved, That we express our pleasure in the presiding of 
Bishop Wilson, and that we pray that his health may be pre- 
served and his usefulness prolonged. 

Resolved, That we express our hearty thanks to Dr. H. L. 
Ashe, his devoted assistant, officials, janitors and the members 
of St. Paul and Mt. Pleasant and St. James, and our sister 
churches, who have so efficiently and so courteously looked after 
the comforts and needs of this Conference; to the choir for 
their sweet music rendered at our anniversaries; to Drs. Lucas, 
Martin, Hingely, Hartman and Jacobs, who honored us by their 
presence as well as thrilled us by their timely and helpful ad- 
dresses; to our secretaries, statisticians and treasurers for their 
untiring, patient and painstaking labors; to the banks and post 
office for the valuable favors shown us; to Prof. Lovell and the 
representative of the Associated Press for their efforts in 
bringing the news of the Conference each day to the citizens 
of Winston-Salem and to the entire territory covered by our 
great Conference. 

Resolved, That we express our appreciation to the Winston 
Industrial Insurance Company, which, through its representative, 
Mr. J. Blume, so graciously tendered the use of its offices for our 
committee work and for the comfort and convenience of our 
Conference. 

And now may the God of all grace continue to graciously 
bless any and all, from far and near, who have in any manner 
whatsoever added anything to this epoch-making Conference.

C. K. Brown,

RELIEF ASSOCIATION 

Article I. — Name 

The name of this organization shall be The Minister's Relief 
Association of the North Carolina Conference. 

Article I!. — Object 

The object of this Association is to give relief to sick min-

TO BISHOP BRISTOL— A RESOLUTION 

Whereas, in the assignment of General Superintendents, the Sara- 
toga General Conference has assigned to the North Carolina Con- 
ference, with others, Bishop Frank Milton Bristol, 

And whereas the Methodists of North Carolina are especially 
honored in having such a noted preacher, lecturer, scholar, and 
traveler as their leader for the ensuing quadrennium: be it 

Resolved, That the North Carolina Conference most heartily wel- 
comes Bishop Bristol as the resident Bishop of the area, and pledge 
him our hearty and cheerful cooperation in all his plans for the 
advancement of the kingdom in this section and regions round about.

FIFTY-EIGHTH SESSION 37 

and eloquent manner imparted to us such helpful information; and

SOUTHWESTERN CHRISTIAN ADVOCATE 

The Southwestern Christian Advocate brings to our homes every 
week a fine summary of the life of the world as seen from the Chris- 
tian viewpoint. It's crisp and brilliant editorials not only invite but 
compel attention. The strong evangelistic note which is constantly 
struck, and the brave and intelligent advocacy of all moral reforms 
are features which make single issues worth the price of an annual 
subscription. Loyalty to Methodism makes just criticism sometimes 
necessary. That service is always performed with a wise tact and 
with good sense and charity. Our Brother Robert E. Jones is re- 
sponsible for all these fine features. We here make record of our 
deep appreciation of his ceaseless efforts to make full proof of his 
ministry as editor of a great church paper, and we most heartily 
endorse his program, which seeks to place a copy of the South- 
western in the home of every family of our church in North Carolina.

BENNETT COLLEGE 

Whereas Bennett College is recognized as holding place in front 
rank among our Freedmen's Aid Schools, and whereas, the future 
progress of our Church is, to a very large extent dependent upon 
our educational institutions; and whereas, our boasted esteem can 
only be maintained and supported by a more tangible evidence on 
the part of this Conference: therefore, be it 

Resolved, That we register our most earnest and hearty coopera- 
tion in the furtherance of the work and program of the institution. 

That we vote our loyalty by word of mouth and faithful deeds at 
every opportunity on every hill-top of our grand old State. 

That we continue the policy of urging our young people to avail 
themselves of the exceptional opportunities and advantages fur- 
nished by and in our institution. 



38 NORTH CAROLINA CONFERENCE 

The General Conference ordered that the colored people be re- 
quested to raise $1 per member this quadrennium for the schools 
of the Society independent of the regular F. A. collection; this $1 
to be apportioned at 25 cents per capita each year of the quad- 
rennium. That we, therefore, authorize the District Superintend- 
ents to fix the apportionment for Bennett for this year of 25 cents 
for each member, same to be reported under Conference Educational 
Collections. 

We recognize the fact that our Freedmen's Aid Board has heavier 
burdens than its present financial strength can carry with satis- 
faction to itself. Most of our teachers are poorly and inadequately 
paid. 

We recommend that we put forth extra efforts to increase our 
local Conference collections, so that our teachers may receive more 
adequate pay.

CONVENTION 

Whereas our Methodism, within the bounds of the North Carolina 
Conference, is not in as progressive a condition as it should be, 
and whereas, there is a great need of quickening in the various 
departments of our work, and whereas, there is great need of laying 
upon the hearts of the laymen the great burden of the work that 
so heavily presses upon our hearts and have them share with us 
the great responsibility of fostering our Methodism and its claims: 
therefore be it 

Resolved, That we call a great convention next summer to meet 
within the bounds of the North Carolina Conference, at which time 
all the great causes of the Church shall be considered with special 
attention given to Bennett College and the Southwestern Christian 
Advocate, and that we formulate such plans as will assure us at 
least a thousand dollars for Bennett College and a thousand sub- 
scribers to the Southwestern Christian Advocate. 

Resolved, 2. That in order to create the proper amount of enthu- 
siasm and interest in the various causes mentioned, that we invite 
to be present with us on that occasion the Bishop of this Episcopal 
area and as many of the general officers as can be present to rep- 
resent their various boards. 



FIFTY-EIGHTH SESSION 39 

Resolved further, That this Conference appoint a commission, 
consisting of two preachers and two laymen from each district, who 
shall have charge of arranging the program and making the neces- 
sary arrangements.

VII. REPORTS 

(a) District Superintendents 

GREENSBORO DISTRICT 

Bishop and Brethren:* — This is my second annual report of the 
Greensboro District. 

We are devoutly thankful to God for the good health that He has 
vouchsafed to us and to our families. 

Since it is impossible to tell all that has been done this year by 
our pastors, we will content ourselves by mentioning a few of the 
salient transactions. 

Temporally. — On the whole we are advancing temporally and 
spiritually. At Pleasant Ridge, Va., we have built a new church 
costing $1,800, with at least two-thirds of the cost paid. We have 
paid off a large indebtedness at West Raleigh on the present build- 
ing and made other necessary improvements, besides, there has 
been built at a reasonable cost a beautiful parsonage. At many 
other points the churches have been renovated, new and better 
locations purchased, and plans are being laid to continue the 
advance in beautifying, building, and locating our churches. 

There is a widespread sentiment in the community of Greensboro 
that our churches must take on new appearances in order to keep 
pace with the times and place; therefore, our boards and pastors 
at Browning Chapel, East Greensboro, Mount Carmel, Northwest 
Greensboro, Rhode Island, Southwest Greensboro, have decided to 
go forth at once to build or raise money with which to build new 
churches. 

I have read somewhere that "Whatever proposes to save men 
must take into account their full nature, environment, destiny." 
We are trying to place around our people an enticing environment 
in order to insure a wholesome destiny. 

These charges have been rearranged in order to insure advance- 
ment along the line of church building. With a wonderful influx 
of our people to this prosperous city and with the rapid growth of 
its suburban population, if we would please God and save our 
people to our Methodism, we must build them more attractive church 
homes. 

Forward Movements. — We have organized our young people's 
work with an eye single to progress among them. The Epworth 
League, the Sunday School, and the Brotherhood have united to 
push our benevolent causes and to help our struggling churches 



42 NORTH CAROLINA CONFERENCE 

financially, and to promote universal spirituality throughout the 
district. These organizaztions have already saved a church to us 
at Burlington worth at least $800. 

We held in our district this year two very excellent conferences. 
In July we held at East Greensboro a very helpful meeting. The 
exposition of Scripture was a new feature in our District Confer- 
ence. Dr. Byrd, of the M. E. Church South, ably conducted this 
part of the program, at times lifting us to the highest stages of 
spirituality. Our general officers present rendered most excellent 
service, in that they enlightened the people and wonderfully helped 
them along the various benevolent enterprises. 

At Reidsville, St. Stephen's Church, we enjoyed a most excellent 
three days meeting — the young people's convention. On the night 
of the annual literary program we had a liberal patronage by all 
denominations of the little city, both white and colored. Our young 
people deported themselves with credit. We have also a band of 
mutual helpers among our pastors which was organized last year. 
This band renders helpful service during our protracted meeting 
season with the least possible expense. 

Financial. — We are pushing the new financial plan as much as is 
practical. It is hard to work the plan on our rural charges, but 
the most of the towns on the district are very successfully putting 
it in action, therefore you will observe from the Treasurer's report 
a slight increase in our finances. We have more faith in great prin- 
ciples than in petty rules for keeping men right, therefore we are 
teaching our people that they should give from principle, but give 
according to some fixed rule. With our present coworkers on our 
district we will ere long be fixed in our methods of giving. The 
preachers have heartily cooperated, and the laity have been as 
open-handed as circumstances would allow in these days of high 
cost of living, to make our benevolences rank higher than last year. 
We hope our efforts have not failed us. Our unified plan to raise 
our benevolences failed us this year, but our success is sufficient 
to warrant us to continue to push it for another year. 

Revivals. — We held to the usual revival season this year as here- 
tofore, and during this season many were converted from the ways 
of sin, but we did not depend entirely upon this season for our 
spiritual quickening. We have had glorious spiritual awakenings 
all along. In fact, it seems that the membership of the district 
has enjoyed a spiritual feast during the entire year. The majority 
of our brethren have made good reports in the increase of con- 
versions and accessions. We ought to show a sturdy growth in our 
statistical reports. 



FIFTY-EIGHTH SESSION 43 

Disciplinary Benevolences. — Our efforts to increase the benevolent 
collections for our boards have been constant at every quarter 
throughout the year. I think we will show a slight advance over 
last year in our disciplinary benevolences. The help given to local 
necessities have been all that we could expect also. We have con- 
tributed largely to visiting representatives from our foreign fields. 
Dr. Alston and Mrs. Alston from Africa received snug little sums 
from our conventions and District Conference. We believe with the 
Master that it is more blessed to give than to receive. 

Educational, — Bennett College is the pride of the North Carolina 
Conference. She has for these forty-odd years been preparing men 
for the work of the Master in North Carolina, and especially has 
she been a boon to our own sons of the M. E. Church. From us 
have gone some of the best men in the colored work of the M. E. 
Church. Bennett College has furnished the Church the leading 
editor of any Christian paper manned by the race. She has given 
to the Freedman's Aid Society several presidents of her schools 
and a score of her most progressive teachers. She is still doing a 
great work under the present management of Prof. W. B. Windsor, 
one of her most brilliant sons and ardent lovers. There is no period 
in her history that seems more auspicious than now if not hampered 
by designers, and she is destined to rise to her proper place among 
the schools of that State that stand for Christian education par 
excellence. Our boarding hall is crowded to the brim and 
the boys' dormitory is overrun. Young men entering from 
now on must find lodging in the vicinity of the school. 
The outlook of our Kent Home, under the management of 
the Woman's Home Missionary Society and presided over by 
Mrs. Donaldson, has never been more propitious. There are now 
45 girls at the Home receiving the best of motherly care and careful 
training. Mrs. Donaldson has with her the best of help in the per- 
sons of Miss Audi Mutey, who instructs in domestic science, and 
Mrs. Irene Gamble, who instructs in sewing, dressmaking, etc. Our 
campus is jubilant with songs of joy and peace, and if it were pos- 
sible to inject nothing that would disturb the present feeling of 
unity and good will that exists throughout the bounds of the Con- 
ference at present, our prospect for the future is great. On our 
district there are eight colleges designed especially for the colored 
race and are supported by the various Christian denominations. To 
keep pace with these schools we feel that our own Bennett must 
have the best of care and our most ardent support. I appeal to the 
Bishop of our area and to the members of the North Carolina Con- 
ference and to the laity at large and, finally, to the great Freed- 



44 NORTH CAROLINA CONFERENCE 

man's Aid Society not to overlook this fact. There are also on our 
district several nondenominational schools of high rank that are 
preparing our young men and women for usefulness in the State. 
I mention these things to show you that we as Methodists must 
take more interest in our school and see that there is produced as 
little friction as possible from any source if we want our institution 
to rank with the other educational institutions of the State. 

Conference Claimants. — We are more and more impressed that 
we are not doing all we might for the retired ministry. Thus from 
time to time we have advocated some substantial plan by which the 
entire Conference can work which will add to the yearly fund to be 
distributed among the present claimants and also to the Conference 
investment fund. Our brethren have done well this year, but we 
hope to distribute the apportionment of this fund with mathematical 
exactness, and then we will go on to raise every cent on every 
charge. 

As we said at the outset, there are many more things that might 
be said, but we cannot say all. We have given a fair outline of 
what has been done this year and what we think should be done in 
the near future. J. P. Morris, D. S. 

WESTERN DISTRICT 

Dear Bishop and Brethren: — Through the providence of our 
Heavenly Father I am permitted to present to you this fourth annual 
report of the Western District. The Lord has greatly blessed us 
with good health during the year; death has not invaded our ranks 
and all the men have been able to stay on the field. 

As for the men on the field, the year has been one of trial and 
hardship; I am sure it has been the most trying in the history of 
the district. On July 15-16 the greatest storm and flood known to 
the State swept through the western section of the State, taking 
in the entire district through which flows the Catawba, Yadkin, 
Swannanoa, French Broad, South Fork, and Broad rivers. It is 
said that these rivers were from ten to fifteen and in some cases 
twenty feet above all previous high-water marks, with everything 
in their path carried away; many homes were swept away leaving 
hundreds of people without food or shelter; land, stock, and human 
lives were lost. Tongue can never tell the destruction done by the 
great flood of 1916. Your humble servant had to walk thirty-two 
miles before any way of transportation could be secured so as to 
reach the seat of the District Conference. This flood has greatly 
affected our work on the district; many of the men will be cut short 



FIFTY-EIGHTH SESSION 45 

in both their salary and benevolence. Notwithstanding they have 
worked hard, having many odds to meet; they have met them man- 
fully and stayed on the field, true to their trust and not found want- 
ing where duty called them. I am glad to state that the district is 
in splendid condition; we have Christian fellowship one with the 
other. 

I have looked after all the interest of the church, and in every 
congregation presented to the people the various causes of the 
church and have urged them to stand faithfully by them. I have 
also urged them that they be more benevolent and that they become 
self-supporting so as to be able to help our needy fields. 

Work Among 1 Young People 

We have given special attention to the young people throughout 
the district. One of the great evils among the youth is unrest; they 
seem to think that money is to be found anywhere rather than where 
they are. Too many of them are leaving the country and going to 
the towns and cities where they have no way of making a liveli- 
hood, and instead of bettering their condition they breed crime, and 
in many cases death. They need to learn that stability and economy 
are among the things needed to make success in life. We have 
urged upon them to become readers of the Southwestern Christian 
Advocate, which will help them in life's work. 

Convention — The Sunday School and Enworth League Convention 
Was Held in Shelby, May 19-21 

The Convention was well attended and much interest manifested 
by the young people. Community life was discussed as well as 
the Sunday School and Epworth League, and some advanced steps 
were taken along that line of work. We have striven to make an 
increase in the enrollment of both the Sunday School and League. 

We have urged the pastors and Sunday School workers to take 
more interest in the work among the young people, and take an 
active part in all the activities of the Church. Too many are idlers 
while a few are trying to do the work. Soul-saving is the great 
need of the Church. We are not winning souls for Christ and 
adding members to the Church as we should; we depend too largely 
upon our fall meetings which sometimes fall short of the mark. We 
need to keep the fire burning all the year and at every service, and 
give the people an opportunity to come into the fold of Christ. 



46 NORTH CAROLINA CONFERENCE 

District Conference 

We held two sessions of the District Conference; the first at 
Bessemer City and the second at Newton. At Bessemer we had only 
a few attendants on account of the flood. We adjourned to meet 
again at the time and place, subject to the call of the District Super- 
intendent. We met this time at Newton where we had a splendid 
session which was well attended. Reports showed that good work 
was being done on the district. 

Education 

I have given special attention to this cause, both in public and 
in private conversation. I am urging our people to make better 
provision and greater sacrifices for the education of the youth. 
Douglas Academy, our district school, is doing fine work. The out- 
look for the school is good. 

Bennett College 

We have advocated the cause of the college on every charge and 
have urged the young people to turn their attention that way. We 
feel that Bennett College should rest upon the hearts of us all, and 
that we should have a better understanding of her affairs so that 
we can properly present the cause of the institution to our people 
as a conference. I fear we are not well enough posted in the affairs 
of the college. 

Allen Home 

This is an industrial school for the training of the girls. Permit 
me to say that faithful work is being done by Miss A. B. Dole and 
her competent corps of teachers, who are giving themselves to the 
work of helping to make the world better. This school and its work 
should be encouraged by all. 

Deaconess Home 

The Deaconess' Home at Asheville, under the leadership of Miss 
Minor, is doing splendid work in training the women for Christian 
service. We commend the great work that is being done by the 
faithful women of the Church. 



FIFTY-EIGHTH SESSION 47 

Kent Home at Greensboro 

I have also advocated the cause of Kent Home, that is training 
our girls in domestic science and fitting them for life's work. We 
commend Mrs. Donaldson and her coworkers for the noble work 
they are doing among our people. 

Summary 

Aslieyille. — C. K. Brown has done a splendid year's work, and 
from all indications the charge is in good condition. 

Black Mountain. — S. B. Cornelius. This is only a mission point. 
Nothing has been accomplished. 

Boone. — J. A. Cherry. This work has not done so well as we had 
hoped for. It is one of those mountain charges where but little can 
be done only in the spring and summer. 

Bessemer City and Kings Mountain, — R. B. Rhyne. This charge 
has made great headway. The church at Bessemer City has been 
enlarged and beautified. It was at this point we held our District 
Conference number one. This charge stands well up to the front 
along all lines. 

Catawba. — H. Fink. This charge has done well. Some improve- 
ments have been made on the church at Mt. Mourn. Everything 
seems to be doing well. 

Buffalo. — S. H. Presley. Good work has been done on this charge. 
The people are poor and to some extent are not willing to do all 
that they might do. The work is doing fairly well. 

Forest City and Brooks.— W. M. Crawford. On the 5th of July the 
parsonage with all its contents were destroyed by fire and, sorry to 
say, without any insurance; otherwise the work is in splendid shape. 
A good year's work has been done. 

Franklin. — A. M. Robinson. Our work at this place is on the up- 
grade. Good work has been done along all lines. The charge has 
never done so well as it is doing at this time. 

Gastonia and Mount Holly. — J. C. Robbins. This charge has taken 
a step in the right direction. The old parsonage and lot has been 
exchanged for another site and a new five-room parsonage erected 
that is a credit to the Conference. They are also planning to enlarge 
the church at Mount Holly. 

Hendersonville.— A. M. Erwin. "We have not been able to do any- 
thing at this point. We have a few members here, but on account 
of nonsupport we have been unable to keep a man on the field. 

Hickory.) — N. M. Black. A good year's work has been done at 



48 NORTH CAROLINA CONFERENCE 

Hickory. They have all the departments of the Church at work by 
both old and young, which is the best way to success. 

Jefferson. — A. D. McDonald. This brother has labored under very 
heavy burdens all the year. For the first half of the year his wife 
died, then followed the flood, cutting off all travel and communica- 
tion for more than thirty days. He has only been able to be on the 
work part of the year. He reports the work in fairly good condition. 

Leiioir. — D. L. Thomas. The work here is in good shape. Some 
work has been done on the parsonage, new concrete steps built for 
the church. 

Lenoir Circuit. — B. L. Burge. This circuit is in good condition. 
Splendid work has been done along all lines. 

Lowesville. — S. P. West has done well along most all lines. The 
charge is in very good condition. 

Lawndale. — J. R. McNair. Everything is moving on nicely in this 
work. Reports show that progress is being made. 

Lincolnton and Stanley. — J. W. Groves. Our work at Stanley has 
never been in better condition than at this time. The church has 
been recovered, carpet and a pulpit set installed. 

Machpelah. — E. H. McArthur. Not in years has this work done so 
well as it has this year. Good work has been done along all lines. 

Marion and Old Fort — S. J. Hayden. At this point the work is 
doing fairly well. Reports show some advance being made. 

Marion Circuit. — A. M. Erwin has done a splendid year's work. 
Some improvements have been made on the church. 

Mayhew. — W. Ellison reports this charge in advance of last year. 
A new lot has been purchased at Cornelius for the erection of 
another church to take the place of the one started some years ago; 
this will put the church in a more desirable place. The work is 
doing well. 

Maiden. — T. D. McCorkle. This is a new point of only a few mem- 
bers. Nothing of importance has been done. The outlook is good. 

Mooresboro and Brackettown. — A. B. Withrow. A good year's 
work has been done by this brother, and the outlook for the charge 
is bright. 

Newton. — R. Smith. We are proud to say that this charge has 
taken on new life. Some improvements have been made on the 
church and parsonage. 

Sherrill's Ford. — P. F. Johnson has worked hard against great 
odds but proved to be true to the trust given him and leaves the 
work in very good shape. 

Statesville. — S. R. McCorkle has done a fine year's work on this 
charge. His report shows the charge to be in better condition than 
in years. 



FIFTY-EIGHTH SESSION 49 

Shelby and Clierryville. — J. C. Addie has closed a very successful 
yea The work is in a healthy condition. 

West Asheville. — E. I. S. Swann. Fine work has been done at this 
point. The church has been newly covered, electric lights installed, 
with other improvements made. 

Wilkesboro. — B. F. Thomas. This charge was hard hit by the 
flood. No point on the district suffered more than did Wilkesboro. 
Many of the people lost all they had. The charge has done all that 
could be looked for. 

The Spiritual Condition of the District 

All the pastors report good revivals on all the charges with many 
additions to the membership and the congregation increased. The 
spiritual condition of the district is encouraging. 

I have given special attention to each department of the Church. 
I have looked after the deeds of the Church and parsonage property 
and have urged the pastors and trustees to see that all are insured, 
quite a number of which have been insured this year. 

We have looked carefully after the Church records, and we are 
pleased to state that much needed improvement is being made and 
we now have in many of the churches records properly kept. 

Church Indebtedness 

Report of the Trustees show that church indebtedness has been 
reduced, leaving the property in much better condition than at this 
time last year. 

We conclude, dear Bishop and brethren, by saying that we, the 
District Superintendent, and pastors, and the faithful membership 
of the Western District have preached, prayed, and worked together 
for the removal of obstacles to the advancement of the Gospel of our 
Lord and His Christ. 

I am yours for Christ and the salvation of the world. 

A. H. Newsome, D. S. 

WILMINGTON DISTRICT 

Dear Bishop and Brethren: — I am grateful to the heavenly Father 
for the privilege of laboring with Him another year for the promo- 
tion of His Church and for the establishment of His kingdom in 
man's heart. Through the divine help that has attended our labors 
some good results have been realized. The ministers remain loyal 
to the grand old Methodist Episcopal Church, and all of them seem 
to be intent on pushing forward every interest of the Church. The 
4 



50 NORTH CAROLINA CONFERENCE 

laymen willingly cooperate with the ministers, rallying to all causes 
and cheerfully responding to every call that the rapidly progressing 
Church of their choice is making upon them. 

Almost all of the departments of church work are attempted by 
the charges on the district. The Sunday Schools are well organized 
and are doing good work. A few are organized into temperance 
societies. Nearly all of them are organized into missionary socie- 
ties. The Home Department is nowhere attempted but is much 
needed. The Epworth League flourishes at several points. It 
thrives in the spring and summer but declines in the fall and 
winter. There are very few perennial leagues. A general revival 
of young people's work is much needed throughout the district. 
The Ladies' Aid and the Woman's Home Missionary societies are 
operated on the larger charges with good advantage to the churches. 
At several charges classes for the religious instruction of children 
have been formed. At every Quarterly Conference I have urged 
upon the pastor and the people the importance of observing the 
rules of our Discipline respecting the instruction of children. 
Churches too long negligent in this matter promise to make amends. 

The special sermon on Education required by the Discipline was 
preached by nearly all of the pastors. It is to be regretted that a 
few failed to meet this requirement. It is a great pleasure to report 
that some of the pastors regularly preach special sermons to. the 
children. The wholesome effects of these sermons can readily be 
realized by the increase in attendance in both the Sunday Schools 
and the regular church services. 

The Woman's Home Missionary Society of the North Carolina 
Conference held its Annual Convention at Laurinburg on the Wil- 
mington District. A larger interest in the work of the society was 
created. The Sunday School and Epworth League Convention of the 
district and the District Conference were held at Piney Grove and 
Beauty Spot, respectively, and they were well attended. In connec- 
tion with these, Community Welfare meetings were conducted with 
much benefit to the communities and the district. The revival sea- 
son began with the District Conference and swept through the 
entire district. 

At contiguous points charges often unite in special effort to carry 
forward some church enterprise. These meetings are rapidly be- 
coming a source of a larger cooperative spirit, great encourage- 
ment, and real fraternity. The several churches belonging to one 
charge have been encouraged to assemble often at the church most 
central in order to enlarge acquaintance and develop friendships. 
This is yielding good fruit. There has been an actual increase in 
the membership which the tables will not show, due to an error of 
nearly three hundred members reported previously on the Maxton 



FIFTY-EIGHTH SESSION 51 

charge. Improvements and betterments have been made generally. 
Thre has been a rise in the salary of several of the pastors, and in 
each instance the people are to be congratulated for paying the 
full assessment in this stringent year. More and more the laymen 
are coming to realize that in order for their ministers to be leaders, 
as they should, it is very necessary for them to be paid higher 
salaries. We realize that the support given our retired ministers 
is inadequate and we are making effort to increase the amount 
raised for them. All the benevolent causes required by the Discip- 
line have been presented with proper instructions. Quite all the 
parsonages and most of the church buildings are insured. There 
is very little debt on the church property, and we hope that in the 
near future we shall be able to make a clean sweep of all indebted- 
ness. 

Three of the retired ministers — J. D. Hairston, W. P. Hayes, and 
H. O. Frederick — live on this district. They are often present in the 
Quarterly Conferences and quarterly meetings to aid with good 
counsel and cheerful messages. They are all in good health and 
wield wholesome Christian influence where they live. 

We have no church school of our denomination on the Wilmington 
District. There are some good schools of other denominations and 
many of our members patronize them. We continually call their 
attention to the superior advantages offered in our own schools, 
and we are hoping to secure larger attendance at Bennett College 
and Allen Home. 

In superintending the district I am trying to work with the pastors 
and the people that we may all be coworkers with the Master and 
that our laboring together may produce abundant fruit.

WINSTON DISTRICT 

Beloved Bishop and Brethren: — Once more I have thankfully 
come in your presence to render an account of that sacred commis- 
sion intrusted to my care as District Superintendent of the Winston 
District, North Carolina Conference, Methodist Episcopal Church. 
Permit me to say, "From Him who doeth all things well," I have 
diligently sought light, guidance, inspiration, and knowledge in 
order that I may steer aright the important affairs committed to 
my jurisdiction. 

The District Conference 

The District Conference convened at Trinity, N. C, July 12-16, 
1916. The attendance was unusually large. The literary features 
and address in subject-matter, thought, and inspiration easily took 
first place in the history of the district. The business features were 



52 NORTH CAROLINA CONFERENCE 

carried out in accordance with the laws and regulations pertaining 
to a District Conference of the Methodist Episcopal Church. It goes 
without saying that the hospitalities and courtesies from the mem- 
bers and friends were all one could desire. 

The Convention 

The Epworth League, Sunday School, and Brotherhood Convention 
convened at Walnut Cove, August 18-23, 1916. In every respect this 
was an ideal convention. The literary part was that of the highest 
order, and the business part unique and tactful. The delegation 
was large as well as representative. The young people of this con- 
vention raised for seating a recitation room at Bennett College 
$27.50, and they pledged themselves to increase the amount to $50. 
Prof. J. A. McRae is still the successful leader of these young people. 

Temporal Economy 

(a) "We have kept a keen eye of interest on the care and improve- 
ments of church property. We are of the opinion that it is ungrate- 
ful to the ministry for any man or set of men to preach in a church 
until it falls on them, without making efforts of improvement. We 
have seen to it that no man fares well long on the Winston District 
who is there just for his salary. He must give evidence that he is 
worthy of salary by building, paying debts, and beautifying the 
church and parsonage. The amount raised for improvements on 
the district during this Conference year, according to pastors' re- 
ports of the Fourth Quarterly Conference, is $5,749. 

(b) The Woman's Home Missionary and Ladies' Aid Societies have 
been fostered and encouraged in every commendable way upon the 
district. Telling in effect and illustrious in achievements is the ac- 
knowledged record of these societies in my area. 

(c) Ministerial support has gradually advanced for four years, 
according to report of records. The records also show an increase 
in church building and improvements. It further demonstrates the 
fact that if the minister wants his salary let him demand it by effi- 
ciency as a church worker, pastor, and preacher. 

There is not a charge within the bounds of the district but what 
I have urged the claims of ministerial support, and that upon the 
pro rata basis. 

The Church 

We here have reference to the membership. The reports will 
show an increase though not as large as in previous years. The 



FIFTY-EIGHTH SESSION 53 

revival season with us was generally rainy and results as to con- 
versions were smaller than usual, yet we have added to the mem- 
bership 196. 

The death angel has visited our district and summoned forty sol- 
diers of Christ from the Church Militant to the Church Triumphant. 
Stricken with grief though we be, yet we are striving when the 
mist has rolled away to greet them in that celestial city. 

According to the reports of the pastors of the respective charges 
of the district, there have been forty marriages solemnized among 
our membership. No divorces have been granted, and so far as I 
know no applications have been made for any. We have urged the 
importance of infant baptism as well as the necessity of the baptism 
of adults. The number of baptisms this year is ninety-two. 

Institutions 

We have used every available means to aid the institutions of our 
Conference financially and numerically. There are fifty-three stu- 
dents attending our Church schools from the Winston District. We 
raised and gave as a special gift at the District Conference $22 for 
Bennett College. The young people at their convention raised and 
donated as a special gift $27.50. We are planning to do even more of 
real constructive work for Bennett College. Large plans are now in 
embryo for Bennett College on the Winston District. Prof. W. B. 
Windsor, President pro tern of Bennett College, is being heartily 
supported by us. Kent Home, to use the words of that consecrated 
woman, Mrs. Donaldson, Superintendent, was never half so bright 
for thrift, industry, and success as now. This district leads in send- 
ing students to that Home as well as to Bennett College. Allen In- 
dustrial Home, nestled among the rugged and sun-kissed mountains 
of the Blue Ridge, has our support, sympathy, and students. 

Boards and Societies 

Pursuant to the duties of a District Superintendent, I have en- 
deavored faithfully to execute my duty in presenting the benevolent 
claims of the Church. I have, as far as possible, carried out the 
disciplinary instruction authorized by the General Conference in 
appointing the respective committees in the Quarterly Conferences 
of my territory. 

Church Papers 

In the main our members are very indolent in reading the Church 
papers. The majority of them will read most anything else before 



54 NORTH CAROLINA CONFERENCE 

a church paper. This is not an encouraging statement but rather 
an embarrassing one; nevertheless the truth remains. The South- 
western Christian Advocate has been represented loud and long 
upon this district. We are never wanting for a word of commenda- 
tion for this paper. Other church papers and periodicals are also 
recommended to our people. 

Summary 

Advance. — A. E. Robinson, Pastor. He has improved the parson- 
age, quickened church interest financially and spiritually, and in- 
creased the benevolent collections under his prudent leadership. 

Asheboro and Mitchell. — D. C. Skeen, Pastor. He has a firm grip 
upon his people. The people confide in him. He is a big-hearted 
Christian gentleman and a gospel preacher. He increased the 
benevolent collection. 

Eed Bank and Mt. Sinai. — C. E. Howard, Pastor. He has made 
rigid sacrifice to bring this charge to the front. He has made an 
increase in the benevolent collections. By his kindness and sym- 
pathy he has gained the confidence of his congregation. 

East Tliomasville Circuit. — J. W. Jones, Pastor. He is a splendid 
pastor. The charge is in excellent condition. Some improvements 
have been made. He is honored and reverenced by his people. 
Benevolent collections decreased. 

High Point. — P. J. Cook, Pastor. This is one of the leading charges 
in the Conference. The people there work as well as pray. In 
recent years they have paid a debt of more than $1,200. Now they 
have erected a parsonage said to be the finest in the Conference. 
For big-heartedness, liberality, and church advancement I have yet 
to find a man to excell P. J. Cook. The benevolent collections in- 
creased. 

Keruersrille. — N. S. T. Sbamborguer, Pastor. He has labored hard 
to advance the work. He has accomplished splendid results under 
the existing conditions. Lumber is on the ground at New Bethel 
for a new church. An increase is reported in benevolence. 

Elkin and Jonesville. — S. McDonald, Pastor. This charge is in 
fine shape save some indebtedness at Jonesville. About $1,200 for 
all purposes have been raised on this charge this Conference year. 
The new church at Oak Grove is up. The frame at Piney Grove is 
up in course of erecting a new church. The disciplinary plan is 
used in raising collections. The pastor is intensely interested in the 
general uplift of the charge. He reports an increase in benevolent 
collections. 



FIFTY-EIGHTH SESSION 55 

Lexington and Thoniasyille. — M. M. Jones, Pastor. There is much 
to do on this charge, and the pastor must exercise a great deal of 
tact, skill, and hard work. He has shouldered this responsibility 
like a hero, working hard to reduce the debt, increase the member- 
ship and the benevolent interest of the church. He reports an in- 
crease in benevolent collections. 

Madison and Stoueville. — W. W. Pope, Pastor. He is very popular 
on this charge. He has conducted himself so as to receive com- 
mendation from white and colored people of his charge. He is con- 
sidered safe as a leader of the Christian ministry. He reports an 
increase in every thing. 

Madison Circuit. — E. L. Gilreath, Pastor. We compliment him for 
knowing how to stay at a place as long as he pleases. Notwith- 
standing this is his fourth year, the cry comes for his return. The 
work is in fine condition. The benevolent collections slightly in- 
creased. 

Mount Airy and Pilot Mountain. — A. G. Jenkins, Pastor. There has 
been a general renovation on this charge. He has increased the zeal 
and inspiration for things higher and nobler in his people. A com- 
plete renovation in the church has been made: new lights, new car- 
pet, new piano, fresh paint, large audience, increased benevolence. 
Money raised at Pilot Mountain for new church is the record of this 
high tone Christian gentleman. 

Mount Airy Circuit — S. R. Gwyn, Pastor. This charge is sparsely 
settled yet we have some good people here. The pastor has labored 
hard with some results. The benevolent collections increased. 

Peubook and Kale's Ford.— A. B. Leonard, Pastor. This charge is 
gradually growing. The church is being improved a little each 
year but the people pay as they go. A very slight increase in benev- 
olence is reported. 

Bandleman and St. Mark.— A. B. McQueen, Pastor. He is steady 
and trustworthy, and very loyal to the interest of his church. He 
reports an increase in membership and benevolence. His people 
love him and desire his return. 

Rocky Mount and Boone's Mill.— C. B. Love, Pastor. He has made 
many friends on this charge. A new place of worship has been 
organized by him known as Blackwater. Eighteen conversions 
were reported from this place alone this year on his charge. 

Salisbury and Morning Star.— G. Hoover, Pastor. This charge has 
done a great deal better this year than in previous years. Brother 
Hoover has the situation well in hand. Under his leadership the 
benevolent collection and membership have advanced. 

South High Point— G. W. Morehead, Pastor. This is a small 
station but as loyal a church as there is in the Conference. The five 



56 NORTH CAROLINA CONFERENCE 

years Brother Morehead has been here have been years of both 
spiritual and material growth. He is a warhorse of the old type 
but as true as steel. He never forgets the obligations of his church. 

Trinity and Liberty. — W. O. Thomas, Pastor. Here we have a 
thrifty and energetic little congregation. This is due, in main, to 
the pastor, for he himself is a man of thrift and alertness; and his 
people have caught his spirit and custom. He reports things in 
splendid condition on this charge. 

Walnut Cove. — J. J. Blanton, Pastor. He has been quite a source 
of inspiration to this work. He is regarded among his people as 
being scholarly, energetic, and an excellent preacher. The work 
grows under his management. 

West Tliomasville. — Extinguished. 

Winston-Mount Pleasant. — W. B. Scales, Pastor. Moses was faith- 
ful in leading the Israelitish host of his day, and so is W. B. Scales 
in leading the host of Mount Pleasant in his day. He has prayed, 
preached, and worked until he has a splendid church house and a 
representative audience to assemble therein. He has raised much 
money for the payment of church debts. In meantime has increased 
the benevolent cause. 

St. James and Oak Grove, now in part May's Chapel. — S. L. May, 
Pastor. This brother has not only been faithful but patient as well, 
for it took a great deal of both to accomplish the great work he has 
done. He has under his pastorate erected a cemented block church 
in a more suitable location in the city, and the majority of his mem- 
bers followed him there while many remained at the old St. James; 
but May's Chapel has a full house every Sunday, and he has left as 
many members at St. James Church as he found there six years ago. 
St. James, too, has been completely remodeled, making it practi- 
cally new. Walkertown has been enlarged. More than $1,000 has 
been raised on this charge for church-building and improvement. 
In meantime not a benevolent interest has lagged in the church. 

Winston — St. Paul. — H. L. Ashe, Pastor. This is in many respects 
the leading church of our Conference. It was badly damaged by 
fire during the month of September, but having a far-sighted man 
as pastor there was insurance sufficient to sustain the damage. As 
soon as the fog and mist were cleared away that leader of men as 
well as preacher was on the spot with carpenters, and in a short 
while made things even more neat and attractive than before; and 
in the face of this he has raised for parsonage debt and other 
church indebtedness more than $4,000 this year. We are not sur- 
prised when echoes come from every angle of his church to return 
him to us again.

Retired Ministers 

Our retired ministers of this district are in good health save 
Brother Elisha Howard who is feeble. They are Revs. D. Brooks, 
F. L. Bost, W. A. Pryor, S. M. Hanes, E. Howard. Beautiful in 
deportment, refined in qualities, and sacred to the memory of those 
who know them is their imperishable record. 

The Bishop 

To Bishop Bristol: 

You are a welcome guest among us. You have long since en- 
deared yourself to us. We hail you as easily one of the foremost 
men in Methodism, in thought, refinement, eloquence, a Christian 
gentleman and judicial ability. We greet you as the bright and 
morning star upon the bench of the Episcopacy. God bless Bishop 
Henderson! We all loved him and love him still, yet I am elated 
to know that in removing him and placing you has not in the least 
lowered the commendable status of the Chattanooga area. 

Words of Thanks 

I voice the sentiment of my brethren in saying I extend thanks 
to the general officers of the Church who have in any way helped 
to make possible the success of the district; thanks to the ministers 
and laity for courtesies toward and cooperation with me in the 
work on the district. 

Fraternally yours, R. W. Winchester.

(b) Standing Committees 

METHODIST BROTHERHOOD 

We, your Committee, beg leave to submit the following report: 
Whereas the Methodist Brotherhood has been instrumental in 
bringing our people together and interspersing among them the 
Christian influence, and whereas its teachings give us a clearer con- 
ception of Christ and His kingdom in this world, 

Resolved, That we give this organization our special attention as 
ministers of the North Carolina Conference. 

(Signed) P. F. Johnson. 

John Wells.

SABBATH OBSERVANCE 

Resolution 

Whereas the keeping of the Sabbath is a command of God and 
we, his subjects should humbly bow to his mandates, and whereas, 
for centuries, it has been a religious practice in all civilized and 
Christian lands, be it 

Resolved, That we, the members of the North Carolina Conference, 
urge our people to a strict observance of this holy day. 
Respectfully submitted, 

W. M. Wells. 
D. C. Skeen.

REPORT OF COMMITTEE ON AMERICAN BIBLE SOCIETY 

Without a doubt the American Bible Society is the great light- 
house from which comes the religious rays of gospel light, and that 
we recognize it to be of such: therefore be it 

Resolved, That we, as preachers and leaders of the North Carolina 
Conference, stand by this worthy cause by faithfully presenting it to 
our people. 

(Signed) J. C. Robbins. 
R. N. Brooks. 

FOREIGN MISSIONS 

Whereas the missionary spirit was never so manifest throughout 
the Christian Church as now, and whereas the Macedonian cry was 
never so loud and earnest, be it 



FIFTY-EIGHTH SESSION 59 

Resolved, That we continue to urge our people to give large place 
in their thought, prayers, and pocketbooks to the cause of Foreign 
Missions, and that every possible encouragement and assistance be 
given our Board of Foreign Missions.

BOARD OF SUNDAY SCHOOLS 

In the year of our Lord 1908 the Board of Sunday Schools was 
organized; the Methodist Episcopal Church had not awakened to 
the significance of the Sunday School. For years it had contented 
itself with an average annual contribution of $28,000 to the Sunday 
School cause, a mere pittance as compared to the task. 

The increase in the Sunday School membership of the Church had 
averaged only about 35,000 for ten years. During this period nearly 
one-third of all the Annual Conferences had decreased either in the 
number of their Sunday Schools or in the number of their Sunday 
School scholars. 

It is a significant fact that the period of Sunday school indiffer- 
ence was one of the leanest periods of church increase in our his- 
tory. 

1. Whereas in 1908 a movement was launched to awaken the 
Church of its Sunday School opportunity; for eight years a cam- 
paign of agitation, education, and inspiration has been waged to 
arouse the Church to vision and to action: 

2. Whereas this movement has brought results to the Church — - 
an astonishing increase of both finance and membership, and 

3. Whereas we find that the total increase in the Sunday School 
membership of the Methodist Episcopal Church in 1897-1907, one 
decade, 10 years, 35,300; in 1908-1915, 156,700; hence the total in- 
crease in the Sunday School membership of the Methodist Episcopal 
Church in 1897-1907, 10 years, 353,008. That in 1908-1915, 8 years, 
our Sunday School membership equaled 1,252,285, 

Resolved, first, That the N. C. Conference shall urge every pastor 
to raise his full assessment for the Board of Sunday Schools. 

Resolved, second, That we shall cooperate with Dr. C. C. Jacobs 
in carrying out the plans of the Board of Sunday Schools. 

Resolved, third, That each Sunday School superintendent of the 
N. C. Conference shall have direct communication with Dr. C. C. 
Jacobs so that each local Sunday School shall have a knowledge of 
the plans of the Board of Sunday Schools, that each local Sunday 



60 NORTH CAROLINA CONFERENCE 

School may work in harmony with the plans of the Board of Sunday 
Schools and aid in carrying out the same. 

Respectfully submitted, W. Ellison. 

E. I. S. Swan. 
A. W. McMaster 
STATE OF THE CHURCH 

It is given the modern church to apply the principles of its plant- 
ing period; Christ's principles were generic. Details were left to 
the self-legislation of the Christ-heart. The Golden Rule, translated 
into laws and institutions, will be the Magna Charta of Christen- 
dom. Applied Christianity is the demand of the times. The Church 
is not to hold but to storm the fort. 

An army rots in its entrenchments. The Church cannot live at 
home unless it goes abroad. The stagnant pool is a distillery of 
death. The unsearchable riches of Christ can be had without money 
but they cannot be kept unless they pay the taxes of his kingdom. 
Paying and praying for a blessing are equally right and twin 
angelic. Prayers for the heathen, with cash for an amen, are alone 
effective. "The love of Christ constraineth us" is the diamond drill 
that reaches the ore beds. The first work of a preacher sent to a 
church that gives according to its meanness is to bring its members 
to the mourner's bench. 

The Church should not yield to statistical pride and estimate 
progress by its finances. She must ascend the Mount of Vision, 
not to dwell in idle ecstasy, but to be strengthened for toil and trial 
in the tear-pitted dust of earth. The Church's ultimate citizenship 
may be in heaven, but she has a vital and practical interest in the 
citizenship that is here and now. Today the Church is challenged 
to the open problems, unknown to apostolic times and the dark 
ages, which press the Church for solution. 

The Church must take the open and, in the panoply of God, defeat 
its foes, disinfect its fold and rescue the nation. 

Remembering the promised presence and power of its great Cap- 
tain, the Church should not be discouraged. With Heaven for an 
ally and Truth for a weapon, the conflict must end in the triumph 
of righteousness, and we must work, pray, pay, and fight down every 
ill and wrong menacing our sacred altars and our starry flag. 

Christ's command is "Follow Me!" 

And our response should be: 
Only Thou, our Leader be, and 

We still will follow thee!

TEMPERANCE 

We rejoice in the wonderful progress of the anti-liquor movement 
during recent months and years. Over two-thirds of the counties 
and over one-half of the States in the Union are now under prohibi- 
tion law. Over one-half the people in the United States live under 
a no-license umbrella. We believe that under the leadership and 
favor of God the time is not far distant when constitutional prohi- 
bition will make this a salonless nation and the Stars and Stripes a 
stainless flag. We most heartily endorse the plans and works of the 
Methodist Temperance Society under the leadership of the Rev. 
Clarence True Wilson, D.D., and our beloved Dr. J. N. C. Coggin: 
therefore be it 

Resolved, That we, the ministers of the N. C. Conference, will do 
all we can to promote the cause of temperance.

BOARD OF EDUCATION 

We recognize that education and religion go hand in hand. We 
also hold that no education is worth the while unless it is flavored 
throughout with Christianity. The school and the Church are co- 
ordinate; they are so interwoven and so interlocked that they are 
inseparable. We therefore wish to urge that we as a Conference 
recognize Bennett College, Allen Home, Gammon Theological Semi- 
nary and other kindred schools within the bounds of the North 
Carolina Conference and our great Methodism as a chief asset to a 
healthy condition of the Church. We urge that our Conference sup- 
port the suggestion that we arrange a program in advance looking 
to the sustenance and support of the above named institutions for 
the present and the years to come, and pledge our hearty support 
to the Committee on Arrangements for the coming convention. We 
also urge that the great educational interest as supported by the 
Board of the Freedman's Aid Society.

ALLEN INDUSTRIAL HOME 

As visitors appointed by the last session of the North Carolina 
Conference to the Allen Industrial Home located at Asheville, N. C, 



62 NORTH CAROLINA CONFERENCE 

it is our pleasure to make the following report of our observations 
and impressions: 

Pursuant to your appointment we visited the institution and looked 
into its every department. We found the institution crowded to its 
doors by a body of students typical of the best young life of the 
Church and race. We found the teachers abundant in labors and 
their work worthy of the highest commendation. The results accom- 
plished at Allen Home are such as to give inspiration and hope to 
all who wish the best for our daughters and who are seeking to 
develop to the highest possibilities of strength this agency for build- 
ing up the Kingdom of Christ. 

We submit that especially should this school have a large place 
in the sympathies of the members of the North Carolina Conference 
and receive substantial aid from them in the accomplishment of its 
exalted purposes. Perhaps the most effective work being done today 
among our people is the work being done by the Woman's Home 
Missionary Society. 

Allen Home has an enrollment of over two hundred students with 
fifty girls in the boarding department. There are eight teachers. 
We were pleased to note the thoroughness of the work done and the 
fine moral and religious sentiment pervading the whole school. 

A good normal course is provided by the school and its graduates 
find no difficulty in passing the State's examination for license to 
teach. 

We were pleased to note that the Bible is taught as a part of the 
regular course, and that daily religious services are held in the 
school's beautiful chapel. To all this is added the careful super- 
vision of Miss Alsie B. Dole who for almost a generation has been 
the devoted and wonderfully efficient superintendent of the institu- 
tion. Through all the varying fortunes of the passing years she 
has stood by the school and the Church, giving to both her utmost 
zeal, her best thought, and her heart's deepest and best love. We 
would record our appreciation of the work being done at Allen 
Home, and heartily congratulate Miss Dole and the Woman's Home 
Missionary Society and the Church at large for the remarkable suc- 
cess of this school through the years. We should all be profoundly 
thankful that here in an atmosphere of devoted love for Jesus Christ 
our daughters are being trained for Christian service. The com- 
mittee finds no hesitancy in commending Allen Home to the confi- 
dence of the Church and to the Christian public everywhere. 

In this connection we would also report that the Deaconess' 
Training School is in successful operation under the very capable 
supervision of Miss Ida Miner, a woman of ability and consecration. 



FIFTY-EIGHTH SESSION 63 

The school has acquired a fine piece of property in almost immedi- 
ate proximity to our church and Allen Home. 

It is with sorrow that we record the sudden death of Miss Rose 
E. White, one of the teachers in the Deaconess' Training School. 
Miss White had charge of the kindergarten work of the school and 
was thoroughly consecrated to the work. A few weeks ago, on a 
Saturday afternoon, she climbed Sunset Mountain that overlooks 
beautiful Asheville; she wanted to watch the sun go down at the 
close of that splendid day. Next morning she arose early, and 
apparently as well as usual, when suddenly and without warning 
she heard the one clear call. Her sun went down while it was yet 
day and she entered the land of unclouded day. Her life was a 
blessing, her memory will be a benediction.

FREEDMAX'S AID SOCIETY 

We, your Committee on Freedman's Aid Society, make the follow- 
ing report: 

Whereas, at the close of the Civil War four millions of our people 
were freed from the shackles of physical slavery, but still wore the 
shackles of ignorance and superstition, and 

Whereas the Methodist Episcopal Church has been working for 
more than half a century to remove ignorance and superstition and 
bring to our people the light of Christian civilization; and 

Whereas our beloved Bennett College, Kent, and Allen Home, all 
located in the bounds of the N. C. Conference, and stand for Chris- 
tian education for the sons and daughters of the freedman, therefore 
be it 

Resolved, That we, the members of the North Carolina Conference, 
pledge our hearty support and cooperation with the Freedman's 
Aid Society in building up Bennett College and use every effort to 
push forward all of our interests.

COMPLIMENTARY RESOLUTION 

In closing our session we wish to declare our hearty appreciation 
and gratitude to the members and friends of Wilson Chapel and 
Pastor Caldwell, and the pastors and members of other churches in 



64 NORTH CAROLINA CONFERENCE 

West Raleigh and the city of Raleigh, who have extended to us 
loving and delightful hospitality. 

To Bishop Bristol for a presidency that has given us profound 
satisfaction alike in the guidance of business and in the spiritual

and to the janitor and all others who have in any way contributed 
to our enjoyment by their courteous services.

Fifty-Ninth Session 27 

V. REPORT OF DISTRICT SUPERINTENDENTS 

GREENSBORO DISTRICT 

Dear Bishop and Brethren: 

We are again thankful to God for His car e of us during another 
Conference year. We have not lost a man from our ranks this 
year on account of death. We have been blessed to have only 
two deaths in the families of our ministers on the district. Death 
entered the homes of Rev. R. J. Shipp and Rev. G. W. Brower and 
took for his prize their little daughter and son and wafted them 
away to glory; but our ranks have been invaded otherwise. Three 
of our brethren from our district have been called to other re- 
ligious duties. We will make mention of their work later. 

We started out from last Conference to make this year the 
best year in the history of the work, but the cost of living and an 
exodus of our people somewhat retarded our progress and at some 
points placed a halt on our plans. We think, however, that we 
have done fairly well regardless of the stringent conditions that 
confronted us. 

MidYear Meetings 

Usually we have two mid-year conferences, the district confer- 
ence and the Sunday school and Epworth League convention. We 
held our district conference as usual and the s-traw vote there 
pointed to a good benevolent report at this conference. The re- 
ports of the pastors will tell just how near the goal we are. We 
started out from last conference to surpass in the benevolent and 
spiritual lines the reports we made there # Nearly every pastor 
pledged to do his best. Some have kept the pledge and their 
reports will show a considerable increase over last year. Others 
may not do so well. We had with us in our district conference 
Dr. W. A. C. Hughes who ably and forcefully represented the Home 
Mission and Church Extension work. He gave inspiration to us all 
and I am sure that the cause was advanced because of his pres- 
ence and able talks. 

We were sorry that Dr. C. C. Jacobs did not give us his usual pres- 
ence and forceful advices along the line of Sunday school work. 
Since he has been in the field the Sunday school work of the State 
has advanced at least 50 per cent, especially in collections. 

The Southwestern Christian Advocate was represented by Prof. 
E. L. Gordon who presented the cause in his unique way and made 
for the paper many determined friends. 

Our spiritual interests were represented by our ministerial 



28 North Carolina Conference 

brethren of the district and Rev H. L. Ashe of the Winston Dis- 
trict, who created no small stir spiritually in our conference. 

Our other convention was called off because of the great 
Educational Convention that was held on our district for the en- 
tire conference at Bennett College. This convention which was a 
pre-eminent success was represented by the entire conference and 
did much toward improving our conference educational work. Our 
district was enthusiastic to the highest extent and showed its 
loyalty to Bennett College, the Southwestern Christian Advocate 
and all the causes there represented. Our vouchers will show at 
least $250 for local education at Bennett College. 

Educational Work 

Our conference school, Bennett College, is located at Greensboro, 
the center of educational work of the state for both white and 
colored. We have there much to do to compete with other educa- 
tional institutions of the vicinity. But it seems that we are hold- 
ing our own, yea, we are advancing. Dr. Frank Trigg is now at 
the helm conducting the ship with a load of nearly thre e hundred 
students. He has an able faculty to help him. Some of the most 
brilliant intellect from this and other states are on his faculty 
and all together are moving the educational work of our church 
rapidly on. 

The Kent Home 

Operating in connection with Bennett College is one of the many 
prosperous institutions erected for the purpose of training our 
girls for higher usefulness by the Woman's Home Missionary So- 
ciety. There are in Kent Home 43 girls under the very excellent 
principal Mrs. Donaldson and her efficient co-workers. On the 
whole our educational work at Bennett College was never in better 
condition. Allen Home at Asheville as well as Kent Home is well 
patronized by our district. 

Materialities 

There are several points on the district that are making rapid 
strides materially. Probably the foremost in this respect is Reids- 
ville Under the direction of brother J. W. Wells this point has 
improved the entire surroundings to the amount of $2,500. The 
delapidated parsonage was renovated to the amount of $300. This 
includes plumbing and painting. The church has been veneered 
with beautiful red brick, making an appearance of a solid brick 



Fifty-Ninth Session 29 

church and the inside has been remodeled and reseated with the 
best of oak seats from Maryland. 

At Pleasant Ridge, Va., there has been a new church completed 
at a cost of about $1,800, and new pews placed in it. The sum of 
• $1,600 has been raised and paid on it, leaving a very small balance 
of $200. Rev. J. H. Dickens is the ardent worker at this point. 

Norfolk, Va., is fast wiping out an old indebtedness of $800. Rev. 
Wm. Chavis has managed the affairs at this point to a decided 
success. 

Northwest Greensboro has started to build a new brick veneered 
church at M'Carmal, a very desirable point on the Battle Ground 
Drive. U. S. has planned to make the Guilford Battle Ground one 
of the beautiful historic spots of the nation We fortunately have 
a lot just out of the corporation of Greensboro and near the Battle 
(ground. A prosperous organization has been there for years. They 
are now aroused by the zeal of Rev. W. T. Lomax, their pastor, and 
have raised $200 toward their new church and have it in the bank 
for that purpose. 

East Greensboro has decided also to repair and veneer the church 
at Browning Chapel. Rev. M. C. Laughlin has faithfully conducted 
the affairs at this point and they have now on hand several dollars 
toward the aim in view. 

St. Matthews, Greensboro, under the faithful management of 
Dr. R. T. Weatherby, is reducing her indebtedness at the rat e of a 
thousand dollars a year, besides she is constantly making improve- 
ments for which she is paying cash. 

Burlington, under the Rev. J. M. Aldridge is about clear of debt. 
There is a small balance yet which will be looked after immediately 
after conference. 

Empire, under the management of Rev. R. J. Shipp, has done a 
good work in that she bought and paid for 16 acres of land adjoin- 
ing the church lands. The purchased land is for parsonage and 
school purposes. This is one of the prosperous country places 
owned almost entirely by our people. There are 50 families be- 
longing to this charge owning their own farms, total acres owned 
by. them amounting to 2,500; an average of 50 acres to the family. 
They deserve a progressive pastor such as is brother Shipp. They 
also need a good educator to take charge of their school work. 

High Street and Raleigh's: High Street is rapidly sliding from 
under a heavy load that it has been carrying for years. Brother 
S. F. B. Peace has proven adequate to th e task and has led his 
ever-growing flock a long way on the road to complete success. 
No better man for business and progress can be found in our ranks. 

Oxford under th e care of Rev J. A. Baxter, one of our good 



30 North Carolina Conference 

young men, has enlarged her lot fronting the Main Street of the 
city 17 feet which allows enough room for both church and par- 
sonage to front the popular avenue. 

These are the points that have made material progress this year 
to a noticable degree. 

Other Advances 

Brown J Summit has made excellent advancement in many lines. 
Rev. G. W. Brower has determined to do his best on this work, the 
result is growth both spiritually and in rank as an appointment in 
the conference. There was a revival held on this work which re- 
sulted in many conversions and accessions. 

South Greensboro has done well this year both in benevolences 
and in spiritual revivals. Rev. G. W. Boyers is much loved by 
the people because of his deep piety and staunch character. 

Leaksville is a prosperous town in which our church is happily 
located. We are on the hill in the midst of a fine people of the 
other race who edlight to attend church and worship with us at 
times. The Sunday school here is running on the graded system 
entirely and is doing a good work. The Rev. R. G. Morris, pastor, 
was called to Camp Jackson to do religious work for the Y. M. C. 
A. The people were loth to give him up but finally consented 
because they knew that our soldier boys needed just such a man 
as he to advise them in their willingness and effort to save our 
country and the world for democracy. 

Townsville and Bullock circuit is enjoying quite a happy year 
with brother Marcus Mundy. They are glad to have with them 
a joyous, bright and happy Mundy with them every day in the week. 
Brother Mundy has done a good spirituol years work and its effect 
is seen in the general religious growth of his patrons. 

Wentworth and Settles had good revivals this year. Brother J. 
H. Garrett has done well there. Our people are not as numerous 
in this section but the few who are there must be looked after. 
Brother Garrett is the man to do the job. 

West Raleigh was pastored the greater portion of the year by 
Rev. Gilbert Haven Caldwell who was doing well and was well 
favored among his people. On September 9th he resigned his 
work by consent of his district superintendent and people and enter- 
ed Syracuse University for the purpose of better preparing himself 
for more efficient work in God's Kingdom. Brother L. B. Gibson, 
one of our honored superannuates took charge of that work and 
made quite a success. Having a revival in which many souls were 
added to the church. 

Central Randolph, Durham, Forshee, Southeast and Sotuhwest 



Fifty-Ninth Session • 31 

Greensboro, Henderson, Julian and Ramseur have held their own 
under adverse conditions. They are small points but difficult to 
pastor 

Special Causes. Temperance cause has made great progress for 
these few years and now we can boast of the part our preachers 
took in helping to bring about this better state of affairs. 

Th'e Epworth League is doing well in many of our charges and 
our young people are taking to hard but pleasant work for the 
community and for God's Kingdom. 

Our Finances are in some points taking on the pure disciplinary 
method and are ahead of the old way. There are five points on 
this district that are using the plan laid down by the discipline 
and these points are ahead in their collections. 

Our Laity. The laity are aroused to their special duties. They 
are realizing more and more that they are an important part of the 
church and if the church is a success they know that it is largely 
due to them and they kno*w also that if the church fails it is their 
loss. We recognize that we must first be intelligent laymen be- 
fore we are intelligent and successful preachers. Therefore, we are 
striving to capture the boys and girls in our Sunday schools and 
Epworth Leagues, knowing that thereby, ere long, we will have 
both intelligent pew and pastor. 

Conference Claimants. It is hoped that our plans for Conference 
Claimants will be carried out. In truth it must be, if we are to 
keep pace with the other conferences of our Methodism. The pas- 
tors on our conference are beginning to wake up to the importance 
of this matter. We think that there is no cause that should have 
more prominence among a body of poor Methodist preachers than 
this one. 

Evangelism. This special phase of our work has not been neg- 
lected this year, for after all the foremost work and the supreme 
duty of th e church of Qod is to save men and women. We have 
had good revivals this year on the account of which many have 
been born into the kingdom. We rejoice that the brethren went 
into the highways and hedges and compelled them to come in. 

One cannot hope to give a full survey of the work of a district 
in so brief a report. We hope, however, that you have an idea 
of the work done by us this year. It would take a good size volume 
to give you the full history and condition of district together with 
the needs and character of the work done at the different points 
this year. 

Our Honored Brethren. We are delighted to honor our fathers 
in the work who yet are noble examples for us. Whenever they 
can they assist us in our work and the assistance rendered is al-

ways acceptable to the people. These honored brethren are, L. B. 
Gibson, L. W. Thomas, J. H. Hunter and Charles Wesley Blaylock, 
who have been stationed on high by the appointment of the Bishop 
who renders the final decision in giving us a place throughout the 
eternities to come. 

Respectfully submitted, 

J. P. Morris, Disttrict Supt. 

WESTERN DISTRICT 

Dear Bishop and Brethren: 

Through the providence of our heavenly Father, I am permitted 
to present to you, this my fifth annual report of th e Western Dis- 
trict. This has been a year of much trial and much sorrow with 
us on the district. We have had a great deal of sickness among 
the pastors and their families. Two of our leading pastors died 
during the year, namely, W. Ellison, Mar, 28; J. C. Robbins, July 
8. R. B. Rhyne was unable to attend his work for quite awhile; R. 
Smith's horse threw hi mfrom his buggy and he was seriously hurt. 
D. L. Thomas suffered a broken arm, but by the help of Him that 
never faileth, we have been able to keep the work going. 

The men have worked hard and have proven themselves faith- 
ful and devoted to the cause of the Master. We have spared neith- 
er time nor pains in trying to make improvement along all lines. 
We have been on the field late and early with the sick, the dead 
of our postors and their families. Yet we are thankful to say that 
the Lord of Hosts has been with us. The District is. in splendid 
condition along all lines. Reports from the various charges will 
put the district in advance of last year, notwithstanding many of 
our people have left the state in search of work and better wages. 

Convention 

Our Sunday school and Epworth League convention convened in 
Marion May 27-30, which was well attended and much good ac- 
complished. It was our endeavor to create sentiment and to stir 
both old and young to greater activities in the Sunday schools and 
Epworth League work. Our greatest need is better prepared work- 
ers in both the Sunday schools and Epworth League. We have 
urged the pastors to seek for those who are to work along this line 
for we fear that we as ministers are not giving the time to this 
work as we should, I have noticed where the pastors look after 
the Sunday schools and Epworth League they are alive and many 
of them are giving aid to the church. 



Fifty-Ninth Session 33 

District Conference 

The District Conference was held at Bessemer City, July 28. 
This was a record breaker, every charge reporting hut one. 

A grand rally was on for Bennett College and at the roll call 
$150 was reported reaised, as part of the $250 apportioned to the 
District for the College. Pledges were then made by the pastors* 
to raise the remaining $100 by the August convention. 

Visitors 

Among those present with us was Dr. Martin of Gammon, who 
is always welcome in our midst. He made our hearts burn while 
he spoke on the great need of a better prepared ministry. 

"We were also pleased to have Prof. Gordon, our business manager 
of the Southwestern Christian Advocate, who presented his cause 
in a most able manner. Sixty-two subscribers were secured. 

The conference passed a resolution indorsing Dr. R. E. Jones, 
editor, for the able manner in which he defends his people. Also 
for the position he now holds and the stand he has taken on Unifi- 
cation, pleading for all people that they may have a fair deal at 
least in the church of God. The district is for unification on the 
Bible plan, as, "Do unto all men as you would have them do unto 
you." 

Th e Forward Movement and Educational Convention was held 
at Greensboro, N_ C, August 8-12. This was a great meeting which 
gave inspiration and created much enthusiasm for Bennett College 
and the Southwestern Christian Advocate. At th e roll call, Prof. 
Frank Trigg was presented with $250 for Bennett College by the 
District Superintendent. 

We are sorry w e were not able to bring up our share of sub- 
scribers for the Southwestern. Some have been secured since and 
we are determined that more shall follow till the district shall 
have reached the mark. 

Education 

We are giving much time and thought to this important subject. 
We have plead with those who have this cause in hand for better 
equipped school buildings and better prepared teachers. We have 
stated to many of the teachers, who are fully prepared for school 
work and are turning their attention to other directions for a liveli- 
hood, that they would do God and the race a great service, if they 
would make the sacrifice to teach though the salary be small, 
rather than leave the training . of the youth to the incompetent 
teacher. 



34 North Carolina Conference 

Bennett College 

I have spoken for the school in all of our churches and all places 
where I have had an opportunity to do so. I have urged our people 
to send their girls and boys to our school and I am proud to say 
that the Western district is turning her attention this way; not 
only in students but money as well. The life of the school is v._ry 
largely in our hands, and as for one I shall ever do what I can to 
keep her living, growing and prospering. 

Douglas Academy 

Located on the Western District is doing splendid work. Brother 
J. A. Cherry, the new principal, has started off well. The prospect 
is good for another year. We are sure if proper care is given this 
school it will be a great feeder for Bennett College. 

Allen Industrial Home 

This school, under the auspices of the Woman's Home Missionary 
Society, opened this fall with great hope and promise for a splendid 
years work. This school is doing much good for our young people 
in western N. C , and should have the support of the conference. 
The Deaconess Home under the leadership of Miss Miner is start- 
ing off well. We believe great good will result from the work done 
by those who have the home in charge. 

Kent Home 

We have spoken of the work done in the Home and have urged 
our people to send their girls there for training. We recommend 
Kent Home to all our people as a proper place for the training of 
their girls for life's work. 

Dear Bishop and Brethren: Permit me to say that we have 
labored to do our best. We have made some advance and have 
had the support of a faithful set of brethren, who have stood by 
us in the hottest of the battle. While it has been hard for some 
to stay on the field, they have stood the test and none but the 
tried and true can stand, being led by the Prince of Peace, they are 
here to report the work done by them in the nam e fo the Lord, 
with the exception of Brothers Willis Ellison and J. C. Robbins, 
who have reported on high. 

A. H. Newsome, District Supt. 

WILMINGTON DISTRICT 

For the Wilmington District this has been a year of great pros- 



Fifty-Ninth Session 35 

perity. The district covers the eastern and southeastern parts of 
the State. By far the largest industry of this section is agriculture. 
Farms have yielded abundant harvests this season and the prices 
for produce have been unusually good. We have done what we 
could to direct th e people to use their money to the best advant- 
age of themselves, their country and the church. We have en- 
deavored to show them that it is to their advantage, since they 
look to the preachers for leadership, to give the preachers better 
support that they may be more independent from a financial stand- 
point, as poverty unfits for leadership. 

We have been earnestly pleading with our people to buy land 
and to make homes for themselves and many are following our 
advice where it is possible for them to purchase real estate, I 
am sorry to relate that there are large areas in which it is not 
possible for Negroes to purchase land, on account of race prejudice. 
Whenever the opportunity is afforded I have been quick to use it 
to show to both races that it is better for all concerned not only 
to allow, but to encourage the Negroes to get homes. In my judg- 
ment home-getting and home-making will do more to solve the 
race problem than will special legislation, segration and mobo- 
cracy. The superiority in the life and citizenship of home owners 
may be easily discerned for the most part. The patriotism of the 
Negro, although larger than might reasonably be expected under 
existing circumstances will be greatly enlarged when more Ne- 
groes are permitted to own their homes. The man who owns the 
little spot where he lives and loves it, will for that reason love 
more the country which makes this ownership possible, and he 
becomes a more desirable citizen and neighbor. 

The Negro'e's eyes need to be opened wider upon the field of his 
advantage among his southern white friends and the friendship and 
sympathy of the whit-? man should be coveted earnestly and dil- 
gently sought. In this matter our church helps much. For the 
betterment of this area a good understanding and larger co-opera- 
tion on the part of both races would work wonders. Profit shar- 
ing in the farm industry as well as in the other industries of the 
South would revolutionize our entire system and do much to keep 
at home the labor that we so much need, and which for industrial 
reasons is leaving this territory. This district has suffered much 
from the exodus of the Negro to* the North for the past few years. 
In some places whole classes left the church. On one of the 
charges only two men and a few women were left. 

Incidental to accepting an invitation to deliver the closing ad- 
dress to the Negro Public School at Red Springs last May, there 
came to me the rare opportunity of presenting to the 300 students 



36 North Carolina Conference 

of the Flora McDonald College for white girls some of the problems 
which I meet in my work. I have never had a more attentive 
and appreciative audience. Keenly conscious of the responsibility 
thrust upon me for an hour and of the value of the time allotted 
me to speak and certainly, too, apprehensive that some wrong 
word might be uttered, I possibly said too little, but I did my best 
to state the problems in a manner that might prove helpful to all 
concerned. 

The health of the preachers has been good and the work of the 
parishes has gone on well. About all the pastors preached the 
sermon on education and presented the benevolent causes, taking 
collections as required by the Discipline. Good revivals were had 
on all charges and many were saved and added to tne church. I 
have noted with interest that the pastors preached special ser- 
mons to the children oftener than formerly and there ar e signs 
of prc-'gress in the Sunday Schools and ycung people's department 
of church work Pastoral labors have been more aimndant and 
the co-operative spirit resulting therefrom may be easily seen in 
the unusually large number of requests for pastors 10 be returned. 
The number of visits made are nearly double that of previous years. 
We report with pleasure that pastors and people are devotedly 
and earnestly working for the success of the church as we have 
not before realized. 

"We have a large number of students at Bennett College and 
would send more if the College could make room for them. We 
are raising money for the school and both pastors and people are 
endeavoring to do their duty by every educational interest. We 
have a few students attending Allen Industrial Home in Asheville. 

Improvements have been made on several of the churches at a 
few places. New buildings are now being erected at the following 
charges: Hamlet and Philadelphia, at Rockingham; Hoffman and 
Sand Hills, at Sand Hills; Sanford circuit, at Mt. Olive. Nearly all 
the church property is properly deeded to the Methodist Episcopal 
Church and is free from debt. On two charges our property is 
seriously involved. At Kinston there was an effort made by some 
parties alien to our church to take possession of our property in 
our absence. A long law suit resulted, ending in the Supreme 
Court's deciding for the church. Title to the property is yet in 
us but it is shadowed by attorney's fee, $250, and street taxes 
amounting to $289. At New Bern our church building has about 
rotted, and our membership has depleted to the point that none 
can be found. My opinion is that the property at New Bern and 
at Kinston would better be sold and the money used to help needy 
points where we have more hopeful prospects for growth. The 



Fifty-Ninth Session 37 

church at Wilmington lapsed in the Building and Loan Association 
and in order to prevent the sale of our property I was forced to 
buy the Association's claim. I have had difficulty in getting a 
pastor to supply this charge. The fourth man who attempted it 
is now doing the work satisfactorily. 

Three of the retired ministers reside on this district and they 
are yet strong physically and morally. They serve acceptably the 
churches and communities where they live. We trust they will 
be late in their home-going. 

The District Conference met at Red Springs in July and was 
fairly well attended. Dr. D. D. Martin represented Gammon Theo- 
logical Seminary and he brought to us a very helpful and instruc- 
tive message. 

Rev. R. G. Morris of the Greensboro District delivered an ad- 
dress on the work of the Sunday Schools and made a plea for the 
Forward Movement Convention. 

On the whole the district is in a prosperous condition and we 
are hopeful that larger growth may attend our labors in the future.

WINSTON DISTRICT 

Most esteemed President, dearly beloved members and co-work- 
ers of the North Carolina Conference, grace, mercy and truth be 
multiplied upon you in abundance. We hail you with affectionate 
greetings and Christian salutation. It is extremely gratifying to 
me under the auspices of the Most High to render my fifth an- 
nual report of the Winston District, N. C Conference Methodist 
Episcopal church. This is a district because of the magnanimous 
deeds and achievements that we may report with mounted pride. 
Situated in a section of N. C. and Va., where one can boast of 
climatic comforts, manufacturing, industry and agricultural pur- 
suits claims for her an ideal location. 

The District Conference 

The district conference was one of unusual interest and success. 
Convening in Winston, May's Chapel, where no pains were spared 
to secure the best of entertainment, and the newly constructed 
edifice gave tone and expression to the occasion. 

In connection with the disciplinary work which was carried out 
in full, a select number of talented men and women read essays 
and delivered addresses on the vital topics of the day with much 
force and power. Representative men of the church were there 
in persons of Drs. J. X. C. Coggins, pleading with Philippie elc- 



38 North Carolina Conference 

quence for a nation-wide prohibition; W. A. C. Hughes, full of in- 
formation pertaining to Home Missions and Church Extension, elo- 
quently imparted the same; Prof. E. L. Gordon, business manager 
of the Southwestern Christian Advocate contended for a moTe 
loyal and liberal support for this church organ. Many visitors of 
note graced the conference. 

The Educational and Forward Movement Convention 

In the main this was an educational conventi n yet many fea- 
tures were discussed and much help and information derived. 

Financially it was a success, the Winston District leading. Liter- 
ally it was one continuous gem of thought. Spiritually all felt 
that it was good for us to be there because of the grace and in- 
spiration received. This convention was made possible by a com- 
mission appointed at our last Annual Conference. Obeying the 
behest of the Conference the results wer e gratifying. 

Epworth League and Sunday School Convention 

There is an intense activity in this organization. The patrons 
of Thomasville deserve much credit for the manner of entertain- 
ment. The interest was great, the attendance large as well as 
representative, and the program reflected credit upon both speak- 
ers and the occasion. $22.50 was given to Bennett College in com- 
pleting our pledge, in seating a class-room. 

The Membership 

The membership has held its own as to members. In fact reports 
will show an increase. We have striven hard amid the afflux of 
migration to maintain our record. We have place great emphasis 
on the membership roll, with a view of the fact; that a decrease 
in membership is the first sign of a decrease In everything else. 

Church Law and Doctrine 

We have advised, pleaded and exhorted our people to be Church 
at'Jing members, as well as national abiding citizens. Our church 
law should stand for more than it does with some of our members 
and in some instances our pastors. The law has no place in many 
of our members polity when the law means restraint. I contend 
that age has carried none of the fundamentals of truths away, and 
that the Wesleyan Doctrine is as firm today, a^ when he sat in 
the University of Oxford and wrote them as God ordered. We 
should obey our church laws and doctrines. Th e order of wor- 
ship in many of our churches is not at all Methodists. 



Fifty-Ninth Session 39 

I do not oppose the creed of any evangelical church; but 1 
do contend, if we are Methodists, use our own form of worship; 
and let other denominations with credit do likewise. We weaken 
in proportion as we fall in law and doctrine of the church. We rise 
in proportion as we foster and maintain the same. 

Church Property 

There is no material activity of the Winston District, that more 
interest has been manifested, than in securing and improving 
church property. We say with modesty, yet truthfully, that we 
lead the conference in commodious churches. 

Ministerial Support 

There is no item pertaining to church matters that involves more 
discussion at present than this one. The high cost of living, in- 
creased taxation and the migration of the people hav e made this 
quite a serious proposition in some sections of our territory. Many 
ministers are asked to serve a charge for practically the same he 
received five years ago. The plea of many of the estimating com- 
mittees is that every thing is so high we can't justify ourselves by 
increasing the minister's support. The committee seems to for- 
get that the pastor has astounding increased obligations which 
must be met, or else embarrass himself and the church. Many of 
our ministers are forced to menial occupation in order to augment 
their salary. We have urged the most rigid economy in our sup- 
port in order to advise others in this crisis of war and food con- 
servation, yet with the most rigid economy no man can live com- 
fortably on former salaries paid by the average congregation of 
this conference. There must be an increase either in salaries or 
in debt. I advise the ministers to be discrete in the management 
of money and deportment in order to have a more united effort in 
securing support, e. g. A poor laundry woman came down the 
street of a certain town, and saw the minister's children all dress- 
ed up and going to the "Movies" as they are called. She immedi- 
ately said, "I am not able to pay my obligation to my home and 
the church, and go to the movies; and if the minister is able to 
do it, he can live without my money, for he is more able than I." 
This old lady spoke the sentiment of thousands. While every 
minister has a right to spend his money to suit himself, he should 
maintain the confidence of his congregation. And if eating meat 
offends our brother; even though we like it, it is Scripture to "eat 
no more." 



40 North Carolina Conference 

The Church and the War 

The war as it is related to the Winston District will be observed 
in the attitude taken by the district in bonds. We did not pray for 
this war to come upon us, but since it has come we are praying that 
we may under the guidance of the Prince of Peace be loyal to the 
government in conformity with our church and creed, until the 
Kaiser and his host are driven from the battle field, and their 
swords shall be beaten into plow-shares and their spears into prun- 
ing hooks. Many of us have tken out Liberty Bonds to support 
our sons and comrades in the trenches. 

Benevolent Boards 

Special efforts have been made to promote the interests of For- 
eign Missions, Home Missions and Church Extension, Freedmen's 
Aid, Education, Sunday School, Conference Claimants, Epworth 
League Chapters, Methodist Brotherhood, Temperance, Book Con- 
cern and our church publications. While these worthy causes 
have not had the ready support we so much desired, yet every 
cause to the best of our ability and opportunity has been fostered 
and helped. We see daily the great need of Home Missions and 
Church Extension work, Educational and Sunday School activity. 
We also see to our pain and sorrow the great need of Conference 
Claimants, as these old veterans of the cross; yea, fathers of our 
conference, sit waiting the action of the conference for food and 
clothing. We read with interest and respond as best we may to 
the great Macadonian cry beyond the seas come over and help us. 
It has, Mr. President, been urged, even pressed, upon our people 
that religion is only active in proportion as the great benevolent 
spirit swings into play in behalf of God and humanity. 

The Opportunity 

This is an age of migration as well as war, especially so with 
Negroes. The reason for this great exodus is left for you to siolve; 
yet the fact remains. But as our people drift into these great 
cities, we should send on trail a messenger or message to our con- 
nection in the various cities and localities This I have tried to 
do. Again there is neglected territory that ought to be looked after. 
There are many persons in secluded places on the Winston District, 
who are neglected because there is no church in reach of them. 

We cannot send the gospel to them for lack of men and money. 
Oh! the dirth for suitable men for this conference, within a few 
years, unless we who are interested in the conference rise to our 
duty and opportunity in securing young men for the ministry. 



Fifty-Ninth Session 41 

Many a young man today is standing at the door of the ministry, 
bashful, timid and mixed in thought and ways, with but little en- 
couragement to enter the ministry. We need to see and speak to 
such young men. God calls men, more or less through men. I 
have searched the district for suitable young men for the ministry. 
They are at Bennett College and other institutions or learning. 

Our Institutions 

We have never worked harder for the promotion of our institu- 
tions than the last conference year. And as we see results that 
fill us with pride and admiration. The slogan this year has been 
"more money and more students." We got both. Prof. Frank 
Trigg is doing his best to maintain and promote the interests and 
reputation of this great institution. 

Mr. Chairman, we believe in education at whatever cost or con- 
ditio^ Whatever friction we may have pertaining to educational 
adjustments in the final analysis with us it is education. Might 
may over-rule right; but one essential point is to know that it is 
wrong. We know that truth is not forever on the scaffold and 
wrong on the throne but in due time right will win. 

Th e Retired Ministers 

A number of these honored veterans of the cross reside on the 
Winston District. Brother S. M. Hanes resides at Winston, feeble 
in health but strong in the faith of a Crucified Redeemer. Brother 
F. L. Bost at Kernersville, excellent in health and active in church 
work. Brother E. Howard at Asheboro, unable in health to care 
for himself at times, but graciously awaiting the summon from on 
high. 'Brother W. E. Pryor at High Point, plodding upward toward 
the mark of high calling in Christ Jesus. Brother D. Brooks also 
at High Point, magnanimous in influence, graceful in carriage, 
commanding the respect of the town but faithfully awaiting the 
Master's call. 

While they remain with us giving tone and dignity to our con- 
ference, may the birds of note sing their sweetest melodies over 
their doors, the sunshine of cheerfulness content their feeble mind, 
and heaven pour out her richest blessings of gratitude and mercy 
upon these our sainted fathers. 

To Bishop Hughes: Words are inadequate and linguistic gift 
insufficient to express our appreciation of having you grace our 
conference as president. You come bearing the reputation of cne 
among the most brilliant sons of Methodism, made possible largely 
by that illustrious father of yours who recently took his heavenly 



42 North Carolina Conference 

flight. We hail you ,as a man of judicial reputation, a profound 
thinker and scholar, a pulpit orator and a Christian gentleman. 
May your stay with us be pleasant, your acquaintances he many 
and your rich fountain of knowledge most profitable to us. 

Commendations 

To my colleagues in the ministry, I extend commendations of 
praise for the unstinted support you have rendered me m making 
this one of the most successful years of my ministry. I com- 
mend the general officers for their important part they have per- 
formed in the advancement of the work. I commend the laity for 
their untiring support and braod heartedness in the work. 

Finally 

When General Prescott, a famous British commander marshalled 
his army into the vicinity of Boston, so careful was he in making 
plans for the great onslaught, until he sent forth a fore-runner to 
survey the angles, the heights and locations of Bunker Hill. At 
range he cried out, "Gridley! what of the angles? What of the alti- 
tude? What of the force? What of the appoach?" Gridley re- 
sponded in tones of delight, "All is well." Mr. Chairman the cry 
comes upon the balmy breeze, fraught with heavenly fragrance 
from every angle, mountain side and plain, "All is well" with 
the Winston District. The battle is fought, the victory won and the 
war-scared soldiers of the cross are nobly and triumpnantly march- 
ing on to glory and to God. I am, 

Yours to serve, 
R. W. Winchester, Dist. Supt. 



Fifty-Ninth Session 43 

REPORT OF STANDING COMMITTEES 



Sunday Observance 

Whereas, we are taught in the Sacred Scripture to remember the 
Sabbath day and keep it holy; and whereas, Sunday observance 
is a religious duty as well as a holy command, be it Resolved, that 
we, the members of the North Carolina Conference, instruct our 
people throughout the confines of our great conference the impor- 
tance of Sunday Observance. Yours to serve, 

D. McRae, 

W. M. Wells, 

D. C. Skeen. 

Board of Education 

We recognize that education and religion go hand in hand. We 
also hold that no education is worth the while unless it is saturated 
throughout with Christianity. 

The schools and church are co-ordinate, they are so interwoven 
that they are imperishable. We therefore wish to urge that we, 
as a conference, recommend Douglas Academy, Allen and Kent 
Homes, Bennett College, Gammon Theological Seminary and other 
kindred institutions within the bounds of the North Carolina Con- 
ference and our great Methodism as a chief asset to the growth 
and the spread of the church. We recommend that our Conference 
lend hearty support in raising finance for the maintenance of said 
institutions and we recommend also the importance of supporting 
the Freedmen's Aid Society. 

Respectfully submitted, 

R. G. Morris, 

J. W. Simpson, 

S. R. McC'orkle. 

Reforms 

Dear Bishop and members of the Conference: Your committee 
desires to submit the following report on reforms: Whereas, the 
Methodist Episcopal church with her humble birth has marched 
from the confinements of her birth to the front ranks of the re- 
ligious denominations of the world, therefore, we, the ministers and 
teachers or this church, resolve, first, that we will never stop cry- 
ing aloud until we shake off every false notion that cleaves to sd 



44 North Carolina Conference 

many people concerning the true method of doing things. Second, 
that we hold to the word of God as a lever with which the souls 
are to be lifted from sin and misery rather than meaningless emo- 
tions. Third, that we as a conference recommend and support the 
church in all her forward movements. 

Yours truly, 

S. M. McDonald, 

J. W. Jones. 

Temperance 

Whereas, we rejoice at the wonderful progress of the anti-saloon 
movement in making this a saloonless nation and have watched, 
with peculiar interest, every achievement with much gratification, 
be it resolved, that we go on record as a Conference as being in 
hearty accord with the Temperance movement and pledge our sup- 
port for nation-wide prohibition. Respectfully submitted, 

G. W. Morehead, 
N. S. T. Shamborguer, 
J. A. Laughlin.

Sixtieth Session 27 

V. REPORT OF DISTRICT SUPERINTENDENTS 

GREENSBORO DISTRICT 

Dear Bishop and Brethren: 

Through the mercies of an All-wise Providence we are before you 
with our fourth annual report of the Greensboro District. To com- 
pass the results of a year's work on a district in a written report 
would require too much of your time and too much space in your 
minutes. Therefore many things that would be of interest to you 
cannot be tabulated. This has been the fullest year that we have 
had on the district. My hands have been full, my brain taxed at 
times to the utmost, planning for the best under the circumstances. 
My district has been drawn upon this year very heavily indeed, 
thus leaving lots of work to be looked after by the superintendent. 
Some of the brethren have been serving their country in the va- 
rious camps, others still have been called to serve the church in 
another field, still others have been afflicted and had to give up 
their work in the middle of the year. Then, to put the capstone on 
it all, we were compelled to relinquish the work over the entire dis- 
trict for five successive Sundays on account of the formidable Span- 
ish Influenza. This last hindrance affected our collections in a very 
detrimental way. Our plans which had been laid to use the entire 
month of October and a portion of November to make our final 
drives for benevolences and our Southwestern Christian Advocate 
were entirely frustrated. While the brethren, some of them, will 
make fair reports for these enterprises, yet none of them will reach 
the goal set by us at the first of the year. 

Faithful Workers. In the main the brethren have been faithful 
workers for the uplift of the kingdom materially. There has been 
some material advancement on almost every charge and at almost 
every point in the charges, such as beautifying, painting, carpeting, 
etc. We are teaching our people that cleanliness is next to godli- 
ness. We are learning that the morale of a people has much to do 
with their general standing and worth in the community. 

yr War Workers. There have been three of our pastors engaged 
largely in war work this year. They have been serving under the 
banner of the Y. M. C. A. God has blessed their efforts and now 
that the war is over some of them are in line for service again in 
the conference. We are sorry to give up Brother Weatherby en- 
tirely to the work of our young men, which, however, will be far 
reaching in these reconstruction days. 

* Camp Church. At Newport News, Va., we have the only church of 

our denomination of the district in a camp town. We need there a 



28 North Carolina Conference 

larger and better church in order to accommodate the influx of peo- 
ple as well as the soldier boys. At Norfolk our needs are just as 
demanding, since the people are flocking there from all sections of 
the country, and so many of them are members of our church. 

Revivals. There have been but few outstanding revivals with 
great results on the Greensboro District this year, but there has 
been a general revival spirit among all the points of the district. 
The condition of the times has been a stimulus to the piety of the 
people everywhere, and we have been praying that out of this terri- 
ble calamity that has come to the nations and the races of the 
globe God will bring great good to us and to all mankind. The 
final result of the efforts of our pastors has culminated in a general 
increase of membership, or, rather, they have been able to hold 
their own notwithstanding the claims of the exodus and the United 
States call for soldiers. 

Profitable Meetings. We have had two very profitable meetings 
this year, viz., the District Conference and the Sunday School and 
Epworth League Convention. Drs. Bovard, Pearce and Lucas were 
welcome visitors to our District Conference and rendered invalua- 
able service. I think the Stewardship Movement and the Centen- 
ary Drive were ably represented. We were made to stop and reckon 
with ourselves as real stewards of the Master's cause. Dr. Lucas 
in his unique way entertained the conference to the delight of all 
present. Dr. E. L. Bain, of West Market Street Methodist Episco- 
pal Church, South, delightfully and profitably instructed us three 
successive mornings on the subject of the Holy Spirit. We all 
felt lifted a notch higher each morning. The Epworth League and 
Sunday School Convention was pre-eminently a success. The young 
people of Leaksville showed themselves masters of the situation in 
entertaining both in their homes and on the program. 

Educational. As usual, our institutions of learning are in fine 
shape. Bennett College and the Kent Industrial Home for Girls are 
full to overflowing with lads and lasses seeking both earthly and 
heavenly knowledge. They are wisely guided by the heads and 
helpers in these schools. We also commend the noble work being 
done at Asheville by one of our Woman's Missionary Homes. We 
thank God for the field of new work among our race that is car- 
ried on there, viz., the deaconess training work. 

Retired Brethren. We have on our district three veterans who 
are battle scarred and yet they are ready to rally to the war trump 
when they hear the bugle blow. There is no trouble to secure either 
Brother Gibson's or Thomas' aid when we have emergency calls. 
Brother Gibson has done well even this year in assisting us at Reids- 



Sixtieth Session 29 

ville since the transfer of Brother Wells. It gives us sorrow to 
know that Brother J. H. Hunter has utterly failed in health. It is 
only a question of a brief time and he will be transferred to a sta- 
tion on high from which he will never be moved. 
Respectfully submitted 

J. P. Morris, D. S. 

WESTERN DISTRICT 

My Dear Bishop and Brethren: 

Through the providence of Almighty God I am permitted to pre- 
sent to you this my sixth and last report of the Western District. 

This has been one of the most trying years since we have had the 
honor of being at the head of the district. There has been much 
unrest and shifting among our people. The great world war has 
kept the people unsettled, not knowing one day what would follow 
the next. Hundreds of our young men have been called to the 
colors, and are on the battlefield in France in defense of their 
country, while many are in the camps and the government service, 
doing their bit to win the war for God, humanity and native land. 
So much has been the shifting among our people that many of the 
points on the district have become almost deplete of men. The 
church work has to be done almost entirely by the women. Then 
came the dreaded disease, Spanish Influenza, which swept the 
country, causing the churches to be closed for more than six weeks, 
just at the time the pastors and people were planning for their 
final drive. We fear this will cause a great setback in our finance 
and the work in general. Notwithstanding the war and the Span- 
ish Influenza, our people as well as the pastors have been faithful 
and true to God, church and country. They have given their sons 
to do service for their country, who have demonstrated to the 
world that they are men and true Americans, and among the first 
to go over the top and across No Man's Land. Thanks to His name, 
the time has come that history will have to tell the part the Negro 
soldiers played in the greatest war the world has ever known. The 
Negro has proven to be loyal along all lines. In some communi- 
ties he led in buying Thrift Stamps, Liberty Bonds and War Saving 
Stamps. There is no place on the district where it dan be said 
that our people are not loyal to their country. When your humble 
servant was notified by our much esteemed Bishop T. S. Hender- 
son that the M. E. church had decided to raise one million dol- 
lars for the War Council, we called the pastors together in coun- 
sel and planned for a drive on the district. We were successful in 
raising and sending to the treasurer $172. 



30 North Carolina Conference 

Permit me to say that the district as a whole has made progress 
along all lines. We have had splendid revivals at most all the 
points with quite a number of additions to the church. While 
many of our people have moved away, the membership as a whole 
will show an increase on most of the charges. In 1912, six years 
ago, the membership on this district was 2,898; the present mem- 
bership is 4,106 a gain of 1,208; probationers in 1912, 224, and in 
1918, 575, a gain 'of 351; value of church property, 1912, $58,375; 1918, 
$87,030, an increase of $18,655; indebtedness, $2,238; 1918, $1,807, a 
decrease of $1,431; present less than $1,000. You can clearly see 
that we have labored hard to clear the district of debt. Two new 
churches have been built with ia cost of about $5,000, after one of 
our church plans, and several others have been repaired at con- 
siderable cost. We have built six new parsonages, at a cost of $6,100, 
with only $350 indebtedness. 1912, six years ago, the amount ap- 
portioned for ministerial support was $10,044; 1918 the amount ap- 
portioned was $14,383, an increase of $4,339. Total benevolence for 
1912 raised was $900; total benevolence for 1918 raised, $1,000, 
an increase of $100. 

Reports will show that there has been an increase along all ma- 
terial lines of the work. We attended the District Superintendents' 
Council at Columbus, Ohio, last June and took our lesson for the 
great Centenary drive for $80,000,000 in five years. We have begun 
the drive and have the work well on the way. 

Some of the pastors have put on the Stewardship plan, which is 
working well. Owing to the Spanish Influenza the pastors and 
officers had to make the house to house canvas to raise their 
money. It proved to be a great teacher for them in working the 
plan. In many respects they have raised more money than they 
did when services were held in the churches. Many of the 
churches are leaving off their old public collection way and have 
adopted if not fully, in part the disciplinary plan for raising the 
finance for the church. While it will take some time to put the 
plan in working order, yet if proper care is given the plan can be 
worked with success. 

Ministerial Council 

In April we held our Ministerial Council, the object of which was 
to plan for the year so that we all might better understand each 
othep* so as to work together as a unit along all lines. We have 
found these meetings to be of great help in our work. We dis- 
cussed our church work fully, as to the best way to reach all the 
people. 

One of the troubles of the Western District, is that the district 



Sixtieth Session 31 

covers too much territory for one man. Many of the quarterly 
meetings must be held in the week, at a time when we are unable te 
meet the people. The majority of them are day laborers, which 
makes it impossible for them to attend church. To reach them we 
must be with them on Sundays. I am sure if we could be at all 
the points on Sundays we would double the interest of our work. 
We find this to be the desire of the pastors and people, and they 
have requested me to make this statement to the Bishop and 
Cabinet. 

Sunday School and Epworth League Convention 

In May we held our Sunday School and Epworth League Con- 
vention at Gastonia. It was well attended and a splendid program 
was rendered. Every phase of the school and League was care- 
fully looked after, and all seemed to be inspired to do more for 
the uplifting of the work. 

District Conference 

The District Conference was held in July at Lenoir. This con- 
ference proved to be one of the best we ever attended. All the 
pastors were present except three, and one of these was prevented 
by sickness. The reports of the pastors showed the different de- 
partments of the work were being carefully looked after and much 
interest manifested. We had with us Dr. J. W. E. Brown, whose 
great speech and able addresses gave inspiration and made our 
hearts burn while he spake to us. Dr. Bowen has a standing invi- 
tation to visit the Western District. This was a conference of 
work and prayer. The Stewardship Movement was represented by 
Dr. Pearce. The conference voted the adoption of the plan and the put- 
ting on of the plan in September which has been done by some of 
the pastors. 

^ Southwestern 



Having at its head for Editor, Dr. Robert E. Jones, our beloved son 
in the gospel, of whom we are all justly proud. The conference 
went on record pledging every one to put forth every effort to help 
make the paper self-supporting, and as proof of our loyalty we sent 
in from the seat of the conference fifty cash subscriptions. This 
paper is doing a great work for the church and race. We -have 
spoken for the paper in all the churches on the District and 
in the homes where we have been, and urged the membership to 
become readers of the paper. We have done what we could to 
put the Southwestern over the top. 



32 North Carolina Conference 



Educational Work 

We have taken an active part in educational work on the district 
wherever we have had an opportunity to do so. Much needed 
improvements are needed, specially in the public school. I have 
urged our people to do more along this line of work. Because of 
the small salary paid, the schools are in great need of better trained 
trained teachers. The trained teachers as a rule have quit the 
school room because of the fact that more can be made doing other 
work. This is sad, yet it is true. 

Allen Home 

At Asheville we have one of the best equipped training schools 
for girls in the South. Miss A. B. Dole, the esteemed superinten- 
dent, with her able corps of teachers, is doing a splendid work for 
the church and race, for which we are very grateful The Allen 
Home is sending out a class of young women who iare helping to 
make the world better to live in. Long live the Allen Home to do 
service for the Master. 

Deaconess Home 

This institution is also located at Asheville and is doing splendid 
work in training the young women for missionary work. I am sure 
that we as a conference will not do our duty if we fail to look for 
suitable young women and urge them to go to this school of training 
for Christian service. May we all stand loyally by these schools. 

Douglas Academy 

This is a splendid location for a school. Its location is near 
Lawndale, N. C. There is no school near this point. The prop- 
erty, as you remember, was bought four years ago. It has been in 
operation since that time. Splendid work has been done during the 
four years. The property is deeded to the Methodist Episcopal 
Church and is being paid for through the Building and Loan by the 
Western District Conference, Sunday School and Epworth League 
at 5 per capita. The shares are paid up to the first of the year 
with some money in the treasury. Brother J. A. Cherry is princi- 
pal. This school, if properly looked after, will prove a great bless- 
ing to that community and a feeder for Bennett College. 

Bennett College 

We have advocated the cause of Bennett College and spoken of 
the work done there. This is our conference school. We love 



Sixtieth Session 33 

her, we honor her, we are praying for the day to come when we 
will all come together as one and see to it that Bennett College is 
put on a living basis so that we may speak of her as the great 
light house of the North Carolina Conference. But to do this it 
will take more than talk. What we all need is a vision of needs 
for Bennett College. No institution can live on talk, big speeches 
and promises. It takes vision, money and good management. What- 
ever may be said or done, the fact remains, Bennett College is 
oeur school, and every one should do his whole duty. I can truth- 
fully say for the time I have been on the district, I have not failed 
to do what I could for the advancement of the college. The prog- 
ress of the college depends very largely upon what we as a con- 
ference do for its support and direction. 

Insurance 

We have tried to have all of our churches and parsonages in- 
sured. We are sorry to say we have not been successful. 

And now, dear Bishop, my work as District Superintendent on 
the Western District is ended. I have made mistakes, no doubt, 
but have done my best. I have endeavored to be true to God, the 
church and the men committed to my care. I have shared with 
the men on the field in their sorrows and in their joys and have 
been with them in sickness and in health, trying to do my bit in 
time of need. I have gone through heat and cold to meet my 
engagements. No point has been too poor or remote for me to 
go to, for if the men could stay all the year I felt that I could 
well afford to go once a quarter. 

Death 

On November 5th death claimed our eldest son, whose wife pre- 
ceded him March 8th, leaving two little girls, but through it all the 
Lord has been very kind to me and has given me good health most 
all the year, for which I am thankful. 

Permit me to say that if I have been successful the credit is due 
to God and the faithful pastors on the field. They have been true 
and faithful. I have not words to express my gratitude to them for 
the way they have deported themselves during the six years we 
have labored together. May His richest blessings rest upon them. 

Therefore, dear Bishop, the honor that was bestowed upon me 
six years ago I have worn with care, and now I return the same to 
you — I trust the same — and pray that my successor may be able to 
do greater things in His name. 

Truly yours in Christ, A. H. Newsome. 

District Superintendent. 



34 North Carolina Conference 

WILMINGTON DISTRICT 

This district is composed of eighteen charges, eleven of which 
are served by members of the Conference, and seven are supplied 
by local preachers. Ten of the charges are contiguous and pros- 
perous. Eight are scattered from Goldsboro to Monroe, a distance 
of nearly two hundred fifty miles. These isolated churches do not 
thrive. They have made no increase in membership for many 
years. How to help the few loyal members belonging to these 
churches is a problem. 

The Charlotte charge has had a prosperous year and some im- 
provement has been made on the church and parsonage and the 
premises. 

A new church is in process of construction at Rockingham, on 
the Hamlet and Philadelphia charge. Some repairs have been 
made on the other two churches of the charge. 

The church at Beaver Dam, where the district conference was 
held, was renovated. At John's some repairing has been begun. 

In order to accommodate the thriving congregations at Laurin- 
burg a new site has recently been purchased and a new brick 
church will be erected in the near future. 

All old debts on the Maxton and Piney Grove charge have been 
canceled and plans are made for improvements. 

Electric lamps have been installed at Mt. Zion. 

A storm crushed the roof of our church at Red Springs. This 
was repaired and the building is now more substantial and attrac- 
tive. 

The property at New Bern was sold for five hundred dollars. 

W. P. Hayes, J. D. Hairston and H. O. Frederick, retired minis- 
ters, reside on this district. They have fairly good health and are 
still useful in the churches where they live. 

I visited ten of the charges four times this year, three of them 
three times, two twice 'and two I did not reach. During the period 
for holding Fourth Quarterly Conferences the counties and towns 
were quarantined on account of Spanish Influenze, and our congre- 
gations could not assemble. This furnished our people a fine op- 
portunity to show their loyalty to their pastors and church, which 
they did in noble manner. S. A. Peeler, D. S. 

WINSTON DISTRICT 

Most beloved President, Members and Friends of the North Carolina 
Conference: 
Through the eternal fiat of the Most High, and the superior au- 



Sixtieth Session 35 

thorities of the connection, I am permitted to rise in your imposing 
presence to report the condition of the Winston District. I ex+end 
to you personal and hearty greetings and warmest congratulations 
for the high esteem you placed upon the ministry of the North 
Carolina Conference, as one of the great moral and spiritual agen- 
cies for the realization of the kingdom of Christ upon the earth. 
As the merciless and graceless Huns have been chased by the 
most choice sons of America, so the religious forces of the 
district have chased vice and sin until today the sunshine of re- 
ligious fervor shines from apex. 

The District Conference 

According to the rules and regulations of this conference, and 
in keeping with the laws of our discipline, we held our district 
conference. It convened at Elkin July 8-12. This was a fitting 
climax for all the conferences the previous years on the district. 
The pastor, Rev. Wm. Crawford, deserves special mention for his 
untiring efforts and masterly way of entertaining the large dele- 
gation. It was a spiritual as well as intellec f ual feast. Forceful 
and well arranged sermons and addresses were rendered, which 
not only brought expressions of delight but gave tone and dignity 
to the occasion. Representatives were there of the commissions 
of Finance, Stewardship Movement, Centenary Drive and Stewart 
Missionary Foundation for Africa. Their sermons and addresses 
thrilled the audience with inspiration. 

Epworth League and Sunday School Convention 

The Epworth League and Sunday School Convention convened at 
Mt. Pleasant, Winston-Salem, N. C, August 2. The pastor Rev. 
W. B. Scales, his members and friends, spared no pains -n ren- 
dering luxurious comforts to the delegation. There is a fne and 
industrious number of young people on this district. They have 
been of invaluable service in the general welfare and matters of 
moral and spiritual uplift of the people. The reports were encour- 
aging. Ex-president J. A. McRae did excellent work as president. 

The Stewardship Movement 

This movement is being organized. We are planning the drive 
for January first, 1919. We are asking every church and congre- 
gation at their watch night service, in making vows, to include 
among them the ten per cent, offering. We have endeavorel to in- 
struct our people that this offering is sadly needed, so as to accom- 
plish in the Home and Foreign fields the great program that is 
now in embryo. 



36 North Carolina Conference 

The Centenary Drive 

This is claiming the attention of the entire district. Already com- 
mittees have been appointed with instructions to follow. We pur- 
pose to do our duty in this drive. While seemingly the amount is 
astounding, if we come to facts and figures, one cent per member 
each day for five years in our Conference will more than pay our 
apportionment. I hope whoever is my successor will push this 
movement as has been my intentions. Nothing in my judgment 
will show up better for the Winston District, as well as others, 
than to have placed at her credit $33,000 in this drive. The money 
is on our district. May the Most High give us men with grace 
and grit sufficient to collect it. 

The Church and the War 

We as a church have been taxed to the limit this year in render- 
ing relief to the starving Belgians, Armenians and in other starving 
zones. The conservation of food has been practiced in some places 
with rigid economy. The production of food has been increased. 
We have endeavored to play our part in winning the war, by pro- 
ducing and conserving food supplies. The matter has been sacred 
with us. Our boys in France and in the camps, leaving their homes 
and churches, are marching to the front to challenge a cause that 
seems to us right. The religious obligation puts it up to us to feed 
them, while they protect us from the most indomitable foe the 
world has ever witnessed. We have urged the buying of Thrift 
Stamps and Liberty Bonds in order to speed the day when the 
much desired democracy shall come. W T hile we are not in the 
thickest of the fight, we are virtually in the fight, for when we send 
bread to feed the hungry soldier who operates the gun at the front, 
we become soldiers also. Certainly if not of military tactics, it is 
of mercy and help. 

Education 

This is a cause that claims our immediate attention and unstinted 
support. The young in their springtime of life need the facilities 
and opportunities of an education. Many efforts have been put 
forth to induce the youth to educate. The rural schools as well 
as colleges have been impressed with equal stress to seize the ad- 
vantages they offer. The sentiment for the intersst of Bennett Col- 
lege has been spread throughout the confines of our territory. Prof. 
F. Trigg has done his best to advance conditions. He is smiling 
at his marvelous success. Kent Home and Allen Industrial Home 
have our hearty support and mutual co-operation for the great part 



Sixtieth Session 37 

they play in the educational realm of the conference. We glean 
hopes of a brighter educational interest in this conference. The sun 
is rising, the dark clouds of obstacles are gradually being chased 
away. Thrift and industry are being injected, and we are anx- 
iously laboring for the day when this conference shall bud and 
blossom as the rose of Sharon in the educational circle. Let king- 
doms rise and wane, differences of opinion ebb and flow, wars and 
rumors of wars spread abroad in the land; but let the day never 
come so long as pulses beat in human veins and his footsteps press 
the soil, that the church relinquishes her educational duty to hu- 
manity. 

Benevolent Boards 

My contention is that we largely represent what we are by what 
we give for the needs of others. The Board of Foreign Missions 
has been represented, pointing out the great needs of India, China, 
Korea, South America, Africa and other helpless nations for the 
gospel. The Board of Home Missions and Church Extension has 
been advocated with vigor and intense interest. The causes of 
Freedmen's Aid, Board of Sunday Schools, American Bible So- 
ciety and the Board of Temperance have all been presented, with 
a plea for financial aid sufficient to relieve the embarrassing needs of 
each. Indeed, my plea is that our measure is small because our 
benevolent deeds are small. God loves a cheerful giver. I have 
plead, prayed, agonized and wrestled with opposers of this eause, 
pointing out the glory of giving, believing that benevolence is the 
cream that rises on the milk of human kindness.

This has been a very hard year to maintain even the present mem- 
bership, much less the increase. The migration has played toll 
in some sections of the district, yet, by prudent pastors and indus- 
trious officers, we have maintained the membership with slight 
numerical gain. The one essential point with us has been to add 
numerical strength to the church. Our slogan is "Win the Man," 
and all things necessary will follow as doth the night the day. 

Church Improvements 

There has been some improvements in churches and parsonages. 
Many have been painted, some completed and others remodeled. 
Industry and church building is one of the rules of the district. We 
decry indolence. The indolent pastor may not commit a crime to- 
day, but he is liable to tomorrow. Much money has been raised for 
church indebtedness. 



38 North Carolina Conference 

Ministerial Support 

There is still a deficiency in most of the parishes in ministerial 
support. Some ministers reluctantly resort to other fields of Chris- 
tian work, not because of desire, nor do they feel especially called, 
but solely because it is a matter of securing sufficient means to 
give his family a comfortable support. I released a man six weeks 
this Conference year. He was in extreme need. The charge only 
promised $300.00 per year, and he could make at his trade $4.50 per 
day. I advised him to go and stay long enough to tide himself over 
the financial strain, and I would supply his charge until he re- 
turned. There are many similar incidents in this conference, who 
did not make this request, but it was not because they did not need 
it. I see, unless conditions change for a better ministerial support, 
a degenerate ministry. Within the past four years the wage earn- 
er's salary has increased 300 per cent. Produce 350 per cent. And 
there is not a church of note in the conference that has increased 
100 per cent. Yet we are forced to live, pay the same prices for 
food and clothing as others at only a small margin of increase in 
salary; with the complaint of members, we are paying more than 
we ever paid. Somebody in the pews must sound the alarm and 
that right quickly. The men of ability are rushing into other pro- 
fessions. The young men who are standing at the conference door 
are failing to knock for entrance, but reluctantly turning to other po- 
sitions which offer them & more comfortable support. Some of our 
young men are being criticized, and old men, too, for that matter, in 
connection with the ministry for seeking other jobs. I fear we ren- 
der unjust criticism. The criticism is on the congregations they 
are serving for not giving a comfortable support. It is a poor man, 
much less a minister, who will let his wife and children go hungry 
and in rags and strings, when he can prevent it by doing other 
work with no tinge of disgrace. Brethren, I may see conditions in 
the wrong light; you may differ from me. That is your privilege. 
But unless the salary of the ministers of this conference is raised 
in keeping with the age, the tone and dignity of this conference 
must wane. We have laid special emphasis upon the Episcopal 
fund and the claim of the retired minister. We will hail the day 
with fearless praise and gala attire when from every angle of this 
conference shall come the much desired news of a sufficient min- 
isterial support. 

A Comparison 

Mr. President, I was appointed to this district six years ago. It 
was a question in my mind whether the authorities of the Confer- 



Sixtieth Session 39 

ence bad exercised prudent judgment in making the appointment. 
Invent to my task with timidity yet with prayerful determination to 
do my whole duty. I found by careful search of records a member- 
ship, including preparatory members, of 2,663. Now we have 3,720, 
a gain of 1,160. There Avere 17 local preachers; now there are 
29, a gain of 12. There were 1,904 members of the Sunday school; 
we now have 3,229, a gain of 2,325. The amount of ministerial sup- 
port was $7,885; we paid last year $9,671, a gain of $1,786. We have 
built six new churches, remodeled 7 and completed 4 that were in 
course of erection. The amount of benevolence was $666. We will 
report this year over $1,480, a gain of $800. The probable value of 
church and parsonage property was $78,600; we will report $106,- 
35J}< a gain of $27,750. This is the commendable record of the Win- 
ston District of these devoted pastors and members. To them 
and not to me belong the credit and honor if there be any for distri- 
bution. 

The Retired Ministers 

With mounted pride and delightful anxiety, we report the general 
condition of the veterans of the Winston District as follows: D. 
Brooks is as active as could be expected. E. Howard is practically 
blind, but medium in health, and desires for himself and wife to 
deed his property to the conference. F. L. Bost is in fine health. S. 
M. Hanes is very feeble. Being paralyzed in the right side, he is 
practically helpless. The springtime of their life is past; the very 
air and sunshine, the beautiful hedges and roadways — pictures 
of admiration — could not refrain tendering to them grateful rever- 
ence. The green meadows, with their myriads of tiny blue and 
perfuming flowers, like fields of green plush, dotted with rain- 
drops of opal, hail with delight the footsteps of our fathers as 
they promenade upon her soft cushions. As to personals: singular- 
ly fine and beautiful, without a single stain, have been their records 
these six years. Their deportment quite amiable and spiritual, dili- 
gent in obligations both sacred and profane, faithful in service, de- 
voted to work, loved by the pastors and honored by the members. 
is the open and untarnished record of these pioneers, founders and 
saints of the Winston District. 

In Memoriam 

Brother W. A. Pryor, a retired member, has crossed the bar. 
While sitting in the pulpit in Morris Chapel, High Point, the fourth 
Sunday in August at eleven o'clock, he threw back his head and 
changed the life militant for the life triumphant. "Blessed are the 
dead who die in the Lord." 



40 North Carolina Conference 

To rny colleagues and friends: There comes to me a spirit of 
sadness to say we must part. The kindest deed, the co-operative 
spirit, the many pleasures, as well as toils that it has been ours 
to enjoy, will never be forgotten, but rather cherished as a remi- 
niscence when hoary hairs and feeble steps are bending in haste 
toward the grave. I can look you squarely in the face with con- 
science clear, in the sight of God, and say of a truth I have endeav- 
ored to give every man a square deal. I have never allowed my 
official office to parley with tricks. My conscience has never been 
for sale. But as I have seen the right I have executed the same. As 
a result I am perfectly willing to receive, at the hands of my 
successor, under similar conditions, the same rules and regulations 
that I applied to others. 

The Bishop 

My dear Bishop Bristol, you have been a special and favorite bish- 
op of mine. You endeared yourself to me ten years ago in this 
very church. Since that conference I have esteemed you as a master 
upon the bench of the Episcopacy. Ex-President McKinley is not the 
only man who admired your platform ability and gospel sermons. 
May I thank the Episcopal College, through you, for the honor, 
confidence and recognition I have received from her subjects. 

The Cabinet 

Dear Brethren: I cannot say to you farewell. Our relation has 
been too intimate. But I do feel most awfully your heavy re- 
sponsibility. I shall invoke the aid of the Most High upon you. 
I shall anxiously and frequently implore Divine assistance in your 
behalf. May He who directs the affairs of men and guides this ship 
of nations, graciously shower upon you His richest blessings. May 
He sustain you when you are powerless and lend you power and 
widom to perform your solemn duties, which belong to your public 
office. 

In Conclusion 

I am reminded of that matchless General Cromwell when he 
marched his troops to the Nipbates and Gordean mountains, fight- 
ing that old England, his pride and glory, might have the white 
flag of peace wave over her confines. The mountains were all illum- 
ined with torches of the Royalists and he heard the tumultuary 
and appalling noise from their camps like the bellowing of an 
immense sea. He exclaimed to his army, "Charge! In the name of 
the Most High, charge!" Beneath the smoky clouds, beneath the 
raging storms of shot and shell, beneath the night heavens the ene- 
mies fell captives. The Christian armies of the Winston Dis- 



Sixtieth Session -±1 

trict, in the name of the Most High, have been charging for six 
years against the great arch enemy, sin, that the churches, their 
pride and glory, may have floating upon the balmy breezes, from pul- 
pit and steeples throughout her confines the white flag of peace. 
I am yours in His name, 

R. W. Winchester, District Supt.

VIII. MEMORIALS AND RESOLUTIONS 



MEMORIAL FROM THE NORTH CAROLINA 
CONFERENCE 

Distribution of Dividends from the Book Concern 

Whereas, the last General Conference saw fit to change 
the basis of dividing the Rook Concern Dividend, making the 
amount of salary, instead of the number of members of the 
Annual Conference the basis of distribution; and 

Whereas such a division works a hardship on the Confer- 
ence located in sections of the Country where the salaries are 
small, so that in those Conferences, the Retired Ministers 
come far short of the amount of money they should have in 
this day of high cost of living : and in view of the fact that such 
Conferences are giving their unstinted support to every inter- 
est of the Rook Concern. 

Resolved: That we memorialize the® 1 coming General 
Conference to change the law of distribution so that a larger 
and more adequate amount of the proceeds of the Rook Con- 
cern may come the Retired Ministers in the above named 
Conferences, to help them in the greatest need of their lives. 

Signed: H. L. ASHE. 



MEMORIAL FRt)M THE NORTH CAROLINA 
CONFERENCE 

Lynching 

The North Carolina Conference in Session November 
12-16, 1919, authorized the following Memorial on the question 
of lynching in this country. 

Whereas the Methodist Episcopal Church is the greatest 
cosmopolitan denomination in the Lnited States of America, 
it having a Negro membership of 350.000: 

Whereas the Methodist Eposcopal Church with its Roard 
of Rishops have always stood by the oppressed and maltreated 
of any race, as shown by articles in its Rule of Disciplina and 
by its enviable record of the past; 

Whereas the Democratic age demands that all people 
have equal rights and privileges and protection before the law: 



Sixty-First Session 29 

Whereas the Rock River Conference put itself on record 
as being against lynching; 

Whereas lynching and mob violence are detremental to 
our Democratic form of Government, and contrary to the 
Spirit of the Constitution of the United States ; and 

Whereas in the recent war of Europe, the Negro was 
absolutely loyal to the Flag of the Government, and to the 
proudest traditions of America's spirit of freedom; 

Resolved that we respectfully memorialize the General 
Conference, assembled in the city of Des Moines to instruct the 
Committee on Revision of the Discipline to insert some para- 
graph declaring the Church against the diabolical practice of 
lynching. 

Signed: R. G. MORRIS.

RESOLUTION COMPLIMENTARY TO BISHOP 
BRISTOL 

Whereas, the North Carolina Conference has had Bishop 
Frank Bristol, as its resident Bishop for the past four years 
and whereas, under his wise administration, the Conference has 
gone steadily forward in progress along all lines so that it has 
reached the highest point of all-around development, and 
whereas his great sermons have been such a source of inspira- 
tion to both Ministerial and Laymen and whereas, his kind 
disposition and spirit of fair play, his strong advocacy of the 
Brotherhood of Man have endeared to our hearts and given 
him a mighty grip on the entire Conference. 

Resolved that we count ourselves fortunate to have had 
the leadership of this great man and to have been associated 
with one of the greatest preachers on the Continent. 

Resolved that in view of the foregoing that we memorialize 
the Committee on Episcopacy at the coming General Confer- 
ence to return him to us for another quadrennium. 

H. L. ASHE. 

Whereas, the Pastor and Membership of Morris Chapel 
M. E. Church, with the many other good friends of the City, 
have royally entertained this Conference, embracing every 
cordiality and generosity within their power, and whereas, the 
choir has rendered such choice inspiring and elevating music 
to the delight of the entire Conference, and whereas we find 
ourselves wanting in suitable expression through linguistic gift. 
Be it resolved that we extend to them a rising vote of 
thanks. 

Signed : R. W. WINCHESTER. 
P. F. JOHNSON. 
M. M. JONES. 



Whereas, we are honored with the distinguished presence 
of Dr. J. W. E. Bowen, who is recognized as an orator, scholar, 
thinker and Christian gentleman, and whereas more colored 
preachers have been instructed by him than any other living 
colored divine until every colored Conference in Methodism is 
embued with Spirit ideas, tone and taste of this great teacher. 
And whereas his influence and Scholarly ability have been 
blessings to humanity throughout the Country. 

Be it resolved that we extend to him a rising vote of 
thanks. 

R. W. WINCHESTER. 



Sixty-First Session 31 

Whereas: We are in areas in our Conference Claimants 
Collections and whereas we are sore in need of this fund for 
our present use and also for investments for future protection. 
Therefore, be it resolved that we request every pastor in the 
Conference to raise at least 12 cents per member this Confer- 
ence year for this purpose, and that each pastor be his own 
Steward in taking this collection. 

J. P. MORRIS. 

FOR THE LAY ELECTORAL CONFERENCE 

Whereas, the cost of living has increased one hundred 
per cent in the last four years while there has been very little 
increase in many cases no increase whatever in the salaries 
paid our ministers and whereas, the ability of our people to 
pay has been very largely advanced through the increase of 
wages to laborers and the increase in prices of all farm products 
and whereas, this increase in the needs of a family as represent- 
ed by the cost of living and the increase in the ability of our 
people to pay ought to result in a corresponding increase in 
the salaries of our preachers: 

Resolved, first, that all salaries of $2,000 and less ought 
to be increased to an amount approximating an advance of 
§100 per year since 1915 and that in salaries of over $2,000 
such increase is advisable as may be required by the increased 
cost of living. 

Resolved, second, that as laymen of the Church upon whom 
the responsibility for ths maintnance of an efficient ministry 
largely depends we recommend that the minimum amount of 
cash salary paid any preacher, who gives all his time to minis- 
terial work, shall be $800.00 and we pledge ourselves to use 
our utmost endeavor to bring every pastorial charge up to this 
suggested minimum. 

Miss LILLIE LASSITER, Secretary. 
J. M. MOFFETT. Chairman. 

Whereas, the time has come when we must give more 
attention to ministerial support and whereas, the Laymen of 
this Conference want to see the retired ministers better cared 
for. 

Re it resolved, that the Apportioning Roard be requested 
apportion the full amount for Conference Claimants to each 
charge within the bounds of the North Carolina Conference. 

J. M. MOFFITT, President. 
L. P. LASSITER. Secretary. 



32 North Carolina Conference 



IX. REPORT OF DISTRICT SUPERINTENDENTS 

Report of District Superintendent of the Greensboro District to the 
Annual Conference held in High Point, N. C, November 12. 1919 

GREENSBORO DISTRICT 

Dear Bishop and Brethren: 

This has been the most eventful year in the history of Methodism. 
All of us know of the wonderful achievements of the Methodist Centenary 
at large. Great results both financially and spiritually have come because 
of the many smaller residts obtained by almost every local church in the 
connection. The ministers and laity in all the churches of the Greensboro 
District acted well their part. During the time of preparation and all 
through the period of organization every pastor assisted by the Council 
and Unit leaders got busy and we rolled up a subscription of over $30,000 
one fifth of which ($6,000) we are confident will be reported in cash to 
this Conference. Moreover, we have a telling organization given us 
through the' Centenary the results of which are sure in the effect that was 
produced on the other financies of the church and upon the evangelical 
quickening, for about every point on the district has raised in full its 
ministerial support and has done something worthy of note on the other 
benevolences. The spiritual awakening is not to be overlooked, caused 
by the preaching of the rightful ownership of God of not only our incomes, 
but of ourselves. Our constituency are rapidly realizing that a portion 
of their time, their talent, their influence must be consecrated to God. 
Thus the evangelistic spirit, the spirit of winning wayward men to Christ 
has possessed hundreds of our own boys and girls and quite a number of 
them has signed the life service cards and have thereby consecrated 
themselves to the work of the Master. 

We cannot mention the different charges seriatum, but suffice it to 
say that we have accomplished this year some of the greatest financial 
victories in our history. A general improvement materially has been 
made on almost every charge. A church covered, a recess added, a 
parsonage furnished, our grounds beautified, or something done to make 
better the material conditions of about every charge. However, there 
are three or four outstanding achievements that require special mention. 
At Pleasant Bidge, Va., a Mortgage of $1800 has been paid off. At 
High street, Greensboro, there has been a mortgage of $3000 burned 
this year, and St. Mathews Greensboro, has burned recently, a mortgage 
of $7,000., $4700. of which was paid this year. At Northwest Greensboro, 
we have banked $1500 for a new church which money was raised this 
Conference year. 

We are not blind to the fact that the church has upon it the greatest 
responsibility that has been thrust upon it since the advent of the Blessed 
Master. And it seems to us that our colored churches have a double 
load to carry The preachers of both races in this Southland should 
realize that it is high time for us to be active in influencing the masses 
for righteousness and justice, therefore as Superintendent, we have not 
hesitated to export our people to be careful that they do no imprudent 
act nor speak an imprudent word which might stir up evil, for this is 
easily done in these days which try men's souls. We have also urged that 
our preachers take the lead in putting forth active propaganda that will 
bring good feelings between the two races that must and occupy our great 
country and form its best constituency. 

The best white South is showing signs of deep interest in the Negro 
and is not hesitating to express its conviction that justice should be given 



Sixty-First Session 33 

to all alike. It would be an act of ingratitude if the leaders of our people 
did not show their appreciation of these good intentions expressed by 
our white brothers, by doing out best to have our people to join with 
them in bringing about this good feeling and in putting down crime and 
lawlessness in both races. The brethren have not been slow in seeing 
that they should join us in instructing the masses along these lines. In 
these days of reconstructing a world we feel that it is the duty of the 
Gospel preachers to take the lead. The state is whatever the people 
are. and the people are measured by the Christian principles fostered, 
and these principles are instilled by Gospel preaching, and living the 
Christ-like life. Thus we, in our quarterly meetings and other meetings, 
have endeavored to impress these higher duties upon, not only the laity 
but upon ourselves as ministers, local preachers, official boards and other 
local leaders of the people at large. 

EDUCATION 

Bennett College, under the leadership of President Frank Trigg, 
is enjoying one of the most prosperous years in its history. There are 
now on roll 365 students. The accomodation for boarding students 
have been exhausted for more than a month. Thirty-five students have 
been turned away this year for lack cf room to lodge them. /The Campus 
presents a beautiful appearance. Over $2000 worth of amprovements 
have been put on the exterior of the buildings in the form of paints and 
wood-work, which gives them an excellent appearance. There has been 
a steam heating plant put in the girls dormitory at a cost of S 1200. This, 
of course, renders both comfort and decency to the young ladies. Kent 
Home, our training school for girls, is also on the same campus with 
Bennett College and is sharing with Bennett in its prosperity. Another 
addition over recent previous years is the excellent corps of teachers 
engaged in the literary and other departments of the work. It appears 
a~t present that we are going to stand anion? the first ranks of our Freedma n 
Aid Schools. 

••SUPER-ANNUATES• , 
There are three Super-Annuates on our district, who are active, 
live, wide-awake. Christian workers. Brothers L. B. Gibson. S. McDonald, 
and L. W. Thomas. We bespeak for them along with the others your 
most considerate attention. 

. We heartily concur with Dr. Hingeby in urging our active ministry 
to see to it that all arrears of the super-annuates be raised. 

' SOUTHWESTERN" 

We have urgently pressed the claims of the Southwestern Christian 
Advocate. We feel that it will be (difficult, impossible) to carry out our 
program of Methodism without the assistance of a church paper in 
every home, for this reason added to the many other reasons we have 
conjointly with the pastors striven to bring up our quota for our paper. 
Some of the brethren have sent in quite a number of subscriptions during 
the year which will be credited to their account. 

Bespectfully submitted, 

J. P. Morris. 

DISTRICT SUPERINTENDENT. REPORT OF THE WESTERN DIST. 
WESTERN DISTRICT 

Dear Bishop and Brethren: 

By the help of God I am permitted to present you my first report 
of the Western District. I was appointed to this District November 



34 North Carolina Conference 

17th, 1918, by the hand of our beloved Bishop, Frank M. Bristol. I 
found the work in a good condition made so by my predecessor, the Bev. 
A. H. Newsome. 

I had not been in the District but a few weeks until I realized that 
my appointment was providential. So I vowed to the Lord that 1 would 
follow his unerring counsel. We held our Ministerial council in the 
month of February. The majority of the brethren were present, and 
we put on our centenary plan, and I learned in the District Superintendence 
meeting held in Knoxville, Tenn., that we were on the right line. We 
pushed forward until our Sunday School and Epworth League Convention 
held at Brooks Chapel. 

Brooks Chapel is « very historical place. It is fourteen miles from 
anywhere at the foot of the Blue Bidge Mountains: it is the birth-place 
of our late Isaac Wells, who made it possible for me to make this report 
and the beloved Daniel Brooks, who is honored by this conference, and 
the silver tongued orator, the Bev.' B. N. Brooks, our Sunday School 
worker. 

There we brought our plans together, our pastors and minute men 
unite leaders which resulted in raising in cash and subscription on the 
first day of the Intensive drive $62,500, over the top one hundred and 
forty-two per cent. It is said by those who attended the District Confer- 
ence that it was one of the best in the history of the District. Our visiting 
friends were, B. G. Morris, B. N. Brooks and B. W. Winchester. 

Summary of the District 

Beports will show that there has been some advancement on all lines. 
Our Schools, Allen Home and Duglas Academy are running over. 
Southwestern Christian Advocate reports will show an increase. 

1 Asheville has closed the best years' work in the history of the 
Church. Thev have plans for a $30,000 Church. Increase in member- 
ship, 20; Benevolences $102.00; Centenary $227.00 

2 Bessemer City and Kings Mountain. This charge has made 
great improvements. They are over the top in everything. 

3 Boone and Jefferson. There has been some advancement made 
on this charge, and it bids fair to be a good work in the near future. . 

4 Buffalo and Elksville. Those people are thinly settled. The 
A. M. E. Church is doing work paralel with ours. There ought to be a 
federation there in our favor. 

5 Cherryville and Galilee. Bev. D. A. Williams failed and this 
charge was put with Bessemer City and Lincolnton. 

6 Ebenezer and Cornelius. This charge has done well. We need 
a modern church at Cornelius. 

7 Franklin. This charge ought to be called the plucky yellow 
jackets of the west for we only have 36 members and they have paid over 
$460.00 salary, raised all claims, and say they are willing to do more 
another year. 

8 Forest City and Bracketown. One half of the members of this 
charge were taken and put with Shelby, but they have done more this 
year than they did last year. 

9 Gastonia and Mt. Holly. Those people have done some con 
structive work and bids fair to become one of the leading appointments 
on the District with the proper leadership. 

10 Hickorv. On account of the location and manv other reasons 



Sixty-First Session 35 

Hickory may be called the hub of the District. They are over the top 
1 on. all lines. 

11 Lawndale and Flat Rock. This is the most city-like country 
charge in the conference, only one church with a membership of 150, 
and 18 of them are teaching in the country and city schools. They are 
over the top. 

12 Lenoir. This is the most transient place on the District and 
for this reason it is difficult to keep the work normal. 

13 Lincolnton and Cherryville. This charge was supplied by A. 
Y. Price, who deceased in February, then it was supplied by J. E. Powell. 
This charge has been neglected, and we ought to make some special effort 
to save Lincolnton. If not, we ought to withdraw from the field. 

14 Lowesville and Stanley. They will have the best church building 
on the District, when completed. They have made great improvements 
in the last three years. 

15 Machpelah and Denver. This charge has found a report, and 
the largest Centenary gift on the District, and I believe in the Conference, 
for we have a member who is kept up by the County. She said that she 
wanted to help in this great movement, and asked me would the church 
accept $1.00 a year, notwithstanding we have those who are giving as 
high as $50.00 a year, and your humble servant $1.00 a year, but this 
one dollar is my large gift. 

16 Marion and Addie's Chapel. This is one of the most hopeful 
charges we have, as it was the first charge that went over the top. We 
hope to build a modern church soon. 

17 Mooresville and Mayhew. We have got in Mooresville at last, 
and our work is growing very fast. We need a new church there, and 
also at Mt. Mourne. 

18 Newton and Conover. There has been some improvement 
made on this charge, and it has been brought up to good appointment. 
It went over the top about 200 per cent. 

19 Old Fort and the Glades. This is a plucky little appointment 
with less than 75 members. They have raised over $760.00 salary and 
raised all claims over the top with the centenary. 

20 Shelby and Brooks. This charge has done the best years' 
work in its history. 

21 Sherrill Ford. They have made some improvements at all of 
the points, but have not gone over the top, but hope to soon. 

22 Statesville and Philadelphia. There have been some improve- 
ments made there, and the work bids fair to become a good self-supporting 
charge in a few years. 

23 West Asheville and Waynesville. They have made some im- 
provements at two of the points. 

24 Wilkesboro. The pastor has worked hard to make things go 
over the top with the centenary. 

Total increase in membership Benevolences $

36 North Carolina Conference 

WILMINGTON DISTRICT 

Dear Bishop and Brethren: 

Good health and general prosperity have been among the many 
blessings which we have enjoyed this year on the Wilmington District. 

Beports from the charges will show increase in membership and in 
the financies. All the pastors got a raise in salary. Several of the charges 
made liberal donations to their pastors in order to help them avoid the 
embarrassment caused by high priced commodities or cheap money. 

On the Hoffman and Sand Hill charge at St. Peter, a new church is 
about to be completed. E. L. Fletcher, who has supplied this work did 
much of the building with his own hands. 

A new church has been erected at St. Mark on the Bennert and 
St. Mark charge. Ground on which to build a church has been purchased 
at Bennert. 

The Mount Olive church on the Sanford Circuit is about to be finished. 

Electric light plants have been installed at Bowmore, Piney Grove 
and Johns. A lot on which to build a parsonage has been secured at 
Bed Springs. Many other smaller improvements and betterments have 
been made. 

In the interest of the Centenary Drive our district was visited by 
teams sent out from area headquarters at Chattanooga, Tenn. These 
teams were led by Drs. J. C. Sherrill, N. D. Shambourger and E. J. Cox 
and Bev. B. G. Morris and Mr. Williams. Some success attended their 
labor. 

Under the District CentenarySurvey, we have projects for $25,000.00, 
§20,000.00 and $15,000.00 at Laurinburg, Charlotte and Maxton, respect- 
ively. Plans are now under consideration for providing sufficient funds 
to complete the project at Laurinburg. 

The Sunday School and Epworth League Convention held at Bow- 
land was a success. The session of the District Conference held at Laurin- 
burg in July was profitable. 

Four of the retired ministers live withing the bounds of this district. 
W. A. Hayes and H. O. Frederick show some decline in health. J. D. 
Hairston and A. B. McQueen are quite well. They all hold fast the 
faith once delivered the saints. - 

I visited nearly all of the charges four times and made one or more 
visits to every church except one. In the month of August I assisted in 
four of the successful revival meetings.. 

As a whole, there are signs of progress and growth on this district. 

Bespectfully submitted, 
S. A. Peeler, District Superintendent. 

WINSTON DISTRICT 

Dear Bishop and Brethren: , 

It affords me great pleasure to present to you the report of the great 
Winston District of the North Carolina Conference. The work of the 
District has been exceedingly hard owing to the increased responsibilities 
brought about by the great Centenary Movement, but we have endeavored 
to go forward in the name of the Master and to do our best to cope with 
the situation, notwithstanding embarrassments and difficulties and how 
well we have succeeded may be partially seen in this report of the District. 
We have twenty-two pastoral charges. Forty-two Sunday Schools, 
forty churches, and twenty Women Home Missionary Societies. Fifteen 
Ladies Aid Societies, fifteen Epworth Leagues, also twenty-two charges 
with unit leaders at work. 



Sixty-First Session 37 

Every charge has had a preacher for the whole year, without any 
changes except Advance and that was caused by circumstances of which 
could not be controlled. But the matter was amiably adjusted and 
Brothers Steed and Wagoner filled the appointment for the remainder 
of the year and there wasn't a break in the preaching services. 

Health Conditions 

The health of our preachers and their families has been good. We 
have emphasized the necessity of our preachers taking care of their needs 
for the mental and moral natures are sustained in the physical nature 
and that no man can do the best work whose health is impaired. "For," 
says Emerson, "wealth is health, and sickness is poor spirited and cannot 
help anyone." 

Organizations 

The Sunday Schools on the District are better and more thoroughly 
organized than they have ever been and that is due to the Centenary 
movementi New schools have been organized and old schools been 
reorganized, according to the latest ideas of Sunday School work. 

Home departments, Cradle Bolls, Graded Lessons adopted. Teachers 
Training Classes formed, Adult Bible Classes organized and in short, 
better methods of instruction and better Teachers and Superintendents 
now in our schools than ever before, and owing to this we have brought 
about a higher standard of efficiency. 

Epworth League 

The League is something of a problem. They seem to be a fluctuating 
quantity. This is true in the reports of the Quarterly Conferences. 
Some Leagues do well for a while, then stop for a while start again. Other 
Leagues have been doing good work all the year and accomplished good 
results. Wherever we can find the proper persons for leaders the Leauges 
do good social and spiritual work. The majority of the Leagues need a 
great awakening which only can come through an enlarged vision of their 
duties and responsibilities to the Lord's cause, and pastors in a lagre 
measure to furnish this vision to the young people of their churches. 

Women Societies 

The Woman's Home Missionary societies and the Ladies Aid societies 
are not barren of good works. They have aided preachers in both material 
and Spiritual works. The have beautified the parsonages, aided in Min- 
isterial support, and helped to raise the benevolences, also assisted in all 
the Spiritual meetings of the church. Without our good women the 
work couldn't prosper. 

Our Literature 

* In some places I find a tendency to use other literature than that of 
our own Book Concern. I have discouraged this idea and have given 
them concrete examples of reasons why we should, beyond all means, 
stick to our literature. First it is the best to be found. Secondly, it 
helps our aged preachers and their widows in giving them aid at each 
Annual Conference. We have no one now that even speak about other 
literature. 

Southwestern Christian Advocate, while speaking about good litera- 
ture, we must not forget the Southwestern. Ubdoubtedly it is one of 
the best papers in Methodism. The people all over the District in rural 
places are singing its praises. Brethren, lets see to it that a Southwestern 



38 North Carolina Conference 

goes into every home. Our people, if need be, ought to deprive themselves 
of food in order to read this great Journal. It is so inspiring encouraging 
and uplifting that no one can well do without it. 

District Meetings 

We had a well attended and very helpful session of the District 
Conference held in South High. The Rev. Gammon Morris was with us 
and conducted Institute meetings on the Centenary and its work. We 
also had visiting superintendents and Ex-Superintendents with us, and 
the services rendered by them and those on the program were exceedingly 
helpful. 

Pastorial Support 

The salaries paid our ministe r s are inadequate owing to the high 
cost of living to support themselves and families. A goodly number of 
our ministers have to resort to other employments in order to supplement 
their salaries so as to make a living- for themselves and those depending 
upon them for the necessities of life 1 have called the attention of the 
Laymen to this inadequate support and in some places increases have 
been made, and at other places the brethren cannot see their way clear 
to make an advance. We cannot expect to do the work needed to be 
done in these strenuous times with an underfed and under-paid ministry. 
These brethren still feel their bodies and some steps must be taken along 
these lines if we are to hold ground already taken, much less go forward. 
It is surprising what a little some of our brethren get along with, but by 
economy of the strictest kind they pull through somehow. Mr. President, 
it takes a good deal of courage as well as religion to preach under such 
circimstances. 

Benevolences 

We cannot forecast at this writing of our report what the Benevolences 
will be, but we are sure our record along this line will not be marred in 
the least. We have faithfully and persistently put forward all the causes 
of the Church, and I believe after reports are read from the Pastors that 
the conference in a measure will be satisfied. 

Education 

It is with a degree of pleasure that we are enabled to say that our 
Educational Institutions are doing well. Bennett College has enjoyed a 
very prosperous year and the outlook for the future is better than I have 
known for years. As a Trustee of that Institution, we rejoiced at its 
beautiful appearance. No one would hardly know it now on account of 
its beautiful dress of which it has lately enrobed itself. The buildings 
have been painted on the outside and renovated on the inside, and the 
grounds have undergone a change by the hands of some excellent land- 
scape artist until everything round and about looks so imposing that no 
one would hardly know the place. News comes that the City of Greens- 
boro will soon install a heating plant. All of these things make Bennett 
College, indeed and in truth one of the leading Institutions in the South 
and we earnestly solicit the patronage of all good people desiring to give 
their children a Christian education. We congratulate President Trigg 
and his noble faculty for the work that is being done at Bennett College. 

Kent Home and Allen Home are splendid places for our girls and 
should receive the patronage of our people. Miss Alice B. Dale, a com- 
petent and well experienced Christian woman has under her supervision 
Allen Home and the work that is being done for the uplifting our race can 
never be told. Also Kent Home situated in Greensboro adjacent to 



Sixty-First Session 39 

Bennett College is under excellent management and is giving that know- 
ledge which is last in this world and the world to come. 

Spiritual Results 

I am glad to report progress along this line. While we haven't had 
so many outstanding Revivals but the Spiritual conditions have been 
greatly changed. The work done has been more thorough and more 
permanent than that done in late years by having some so-called Evange- 
list to come, and by some unusual method get up a great excitement 
and create a great enthusiasm and then go taking all the goods seemingly 
with him. Our brethren are learning to be their own Evangelists and 
I find where meetings are held by the Pastors and people they do more 
good than those held by out-siders. Some of our pastors and people 
are enjoying a fuller measure of the presence of the Holy Ghost than in 
former years. 

May the Doctrine of a New Birth witnessed by the Holy Ghost 
nev'er ceased to be preached and that our people may attain to an exper- 
ience where fear is cast, out by perfect love. 

Material Results 
There has been some little improvement on almost on every charge 
but we have advised the people unless in a case of necessity to put off 
building until after the Great Cnetenary effort. However, we can report 
a new church at Hall's Ford, Va. Some work done at Rocky Mount, Va., 
enlargement of church at Rural Hall, repairs at Jones ville also at Elkin. 
basement cemented and wooden floor over the cement at High Point. 

Of Evangelism 

The need of Evangelism is world-wide. The Commission: "Go ye 
into all the world and preach my Gospel to every creature" is as binding 
and forceful today as when first uttered. Evangelism is fundamentally 
important. It is the sine qua non of the world's salvation. We hear 
much of Social Salvation, the Purification of Society, Economic Justice. 
Prevention of War, Destruction of Saloons, Betterment Work and of 
Humanitarianism. Be it known to you that these programs will succeed 
only as they follow the program of Jesus Christ. The program of Modern 
Social Service is to cure existing evils by social means and thus reform 
society, but we, as representatives of Evangelism, believe in preaching 
society but we representatives of Evangelism believe in preaching the 
guilt of sin and by regeneration of the individual as the only sovereign 
means of saving tbe world. Further, the world cannot be saved whole- 
sale but it must be by personal individualistic effort whether it be by 
Moses, Aaron or Eldad and Medad. 

The task before us for a million of souls in only a few months must 
be accomplished by personal and individualistic touch of preachers and 
laity filled with the Spirit of God. 

s^ Unrest 

There never has been more unrest among our people than today, and 
as I travel up and down and throughout the State and hear our people 
talk, it seems' as the basis for the unrest is that Demorcacy is not applied 
to all people alike. On this account their souls have become discouraged 
and the torch of hope is burning dim, and almost put out. But Mr. 
President, I have preached a Gospel of Optimism and have repeatedly 
called attention to the fact that God isn't dead and He yet has the super- 
vision and control of this world, and eventually all things will work out 



40 North Carolina Conference 

for good to those that love Him. Therefore we will never give up but 
hope on, hope, though there is not a spark of light, which hope we have 
as an anchor both sure and steadfast. 

Of the Centenary 

With the assistance of Almighty God and the brethren, we went 
about to organize. By hard work we were able to perfect an organization 
which was a credit to us and our people. Dr. Fort Lowe wrote that I 
was the first on Chattanooga area to perfect an organization of 100 per 
cent, and asked me to speak a word at a meeting in Columbus, Ohio, if 
present, but the Cleveland, Ohio, Convention made it impossible for me 
o be there. 

Secondly. After orgainzation we began on our District to educate 
the people along religious and financial lines. In some of our churches 
the people went out two by two and made visitations from house to 
house praying and asking members to attend church. The result of such 
work was soon apparent in that the Prayer Meetings which had so long 
in most churches become dominent, received new life and the churches 
were filled with members crying mightily unto God for the outpouring of 
His Spirit, and the result was that new life was given to the churches and 
the membership increased and people became Stewards for the cause of 
God. In every instance where the program was adhered to, these results 
were obtained. 

As to financial success, again we desire to state that the church that 
carried out the spiritual side of the program were the first churches that 
went over the top, both in subscriptions and money. So we recommend 
to the brethren not to let spiritual interest lug up their desire to be suc- 
cessful along financial lines. Therefore we feel that intersession, steward- 
ship and life service are the best preservations the Centenary can have. 

Again not only was our District thoroughly organized, but it was 
an orgainzation at work. I am grateful to report 1611 Intercessors, 
800 Tithers. and Five thousand and five hundred dollars in money I know 
about and other moneys I understand sent off which I have no record. 

Therefore we say not in the spirit of boasting, but in all humbleness 
and submissiveness and with gratitude in our hearts to God for His Leader- 
ship without which the work could not be accomplished, that the Winston 
District is not only the Banner District in N. C. Conference, but the 
entire Chattanooga Area. 

Brethren I thank you very much for your cooperation and also the 
Laity without, which this work could not have been accomplished. 

P. 5. Cook, Dist. Supt.
