FIRST DAY. 



MuNciE, Ind., Wednesday, April 6, 1904. 

After the singing of several hymns, led by Bishop McCabe, the 
sixty-first session of the North Indiana Conference, Methodist Epis- 
copal Church, was opened in the High Street Methodist Episcopal 
Church in the city of Muncie, Indiana, at 8:15 a. m., by Bishop 
Charles C McCabe, DD, LE D, who read for Scripture lessons 
Isaiah, 53d chapter and Philippians, 2nd chapter, 1-16. After the 
reading of the Scripture lessons the Bishop announced Hymn No. 241, 
"Majestic sweetness sits enthroned, " 

during the singing of which, at the request of the Bishop, the Pre- 
siding Elders came within the chancel to assist in the sacramental 
service. The elements were then consecrated by the Bishop, as- 
sisted by the Presiding Elders and by them administered to the con- 
gregation. After the Bishop had made some very appropriate 
remarks he closed the Communion Service in due form. 
Hymn No. 653, 

" Take the name of Jesus with you, " 
was then sung.

Changing Boundaries — The following communication was re- 
ceived from the Northwest Indiana Conference in regard to chang- 
ing the boundary lines between the two Conferences. 

To the Presiding Bishop and Members of the North Indiana Con- 
ference : 

Dear Fathers and Brethren : In conformity with Para- 
graphs 436 and 437, Discipline of the Methodist Episcopal Church 
1900, the Northwest Indiana Annual Conference took the following 
action at the session held in South Bend, Ind., September 2-S, 1903 : 
At the first day's session, September 2d, the following memorial 
was introduced and action thereon taken, as recorded on pages 303— 
304, Minutes of 1 903 : 

[The printed Minutes are adopted as the OflScial Record.] 

Memorial on Conference Boundaries — D M Wood read the 
following paper memorializing the General Conference to change the 
boundary between Northwest Indiana and North Indiana Confer- 
ences, and moved its adoption : 

The Northwest Indiana Conference asks a change in boundary 
line between the North and-Northwest Indiana Conferences so as to 
equally divide the territory now occupied by these two Conferences. 
We call attention to the following facts: The St. Joseph River 
constitutes about three miles of the present boundary, extending from 
South Bend to the Michigan State line. The distance from South 
Bend to Indianapolis, or 129 miles on a direct line, is bounded by a 
public highway known as the " Michigan Road, " which in an early 
day and before the construction of railroads, was a well-known State 
thoroughfare, but to-day is comparatively unknown. Indianapolis 
is in almost the exact center of the State east and west. South Bend 
is seven miles west of the center. Logansport is ten miles west of a 
straight line drawn from Indianapolis to South Bend. This curye 



1904] North Indiana Conference 19 

in the boundary line to pass through Logansport gives an advantage 
of twenty-one miles in width to the North Indiana Conference at this 
point. 

From IvOgansport to the Illinois line is sixty-one miles, and 
eighty-two miles to the Ohio line. Logansport is ten or twelve miles 
west of a line dividing the State north and south. It is now a great 
railroad center and greatly needed by the Northwest Indiana Con- 
ference as an administrative center, and is so located as not to be 
used as such by the North Indiana Conference. Its location and 
railroads would make it a center for a Presiding Elder's district 
equal, if not superior, to any city now in the Northwest Indiana 
Conference, and would make it one of five or six great administra- 
tive centers of the Conference. 

Another important item showing that the present boundary line 
does not constitute an equitable division, is that the North Indiana 
Conference includes the richest area of the State with no waste lands, 
while almost one-third of the territory of the Northwest Indiana 
Conference is marsh land not yet fully open to cultivation. 

We call attention to the fact that the following county lines 
would almost exactly divide the north end of the State into equal 
parts : The east line of St. Joseph, Marshall, Fulton, Cass, crossing 
Howard on direct line from southeast corner of Cass to northwest 
corner of Tipton, thence south on east line of Clinton and Boone un- 
til it intersects the line of the Indiana Conference. A line such as 
this would have a rational and equitable basis, and could be traced 
by any child in the district schools. 

Upon these facts, and others which may be furnished, we base 
our memorial for an equal division of territory. 

W H Hickman moved to substitute that we appoint a Commis- 
sion of three to meet a like Commission from the North Indiana Con- 
ference, and canvass the matter of readjusting the Conference 
boundaries. 

On motion of S P Colvin, the subject was postponed and made 
the Order of the Day after the report of the Presiding Elder, of 
I^afayette District, to-morrow morning. 

At the second day's session, September 3d, as recorded on page 
305, the following action was taken regarding the memorial : 

Order of the Day — The Order of the Day, the Memorial on 
Conference Boundaries, was taken up. W H Hickman, by common 
consent, withdrew his substitute ; and he moved to amend by the 
addition of the following, and the amendment was accepted. 

And in order to have a brotherly consideration of the whole 
question, we ask our Conference to appoint a Commission of five 



20 Journal of Daily Proceedings [1904 

men from our Conference, to meet a like Commission from North 
Indiana Conference to consider the advantages to be obtained in 
developing the territory afiFected, and the Church generally, by mak- 
ing these changes. And that the Secretary of our Conference be 
instructed to notify the North Indiana Conference of this action, and 
requesting that Conference, on our behalf, to appoint said Commis- 
sion. 

On motion of S P Colvin, the paper was divided. The memo- 
rial to the General Conference was adopted unanimously by a count 
vote of 119. The amendment to raise a Commission was adopted by 
a count vote, 95 for and i against. 

At the third day's session, September 4th, the following Com- 
missions were confirmed to carry out the above action : 

Commission on Boundaries — The Bishop read the nomina- 
tions for the Commission on Boundaries: W P McKinsey, J S 
Hoagland, A T Briggs, S P Colvin and M H Appleby, and they 
were confirmed. 

I hereby certify that the foregoing is a correct transcript of the 
proceedings of the Northwest Indiana Annual Conference of the 
Methodist Episcopal Church, regarding the Memorial to be presented 
to the General Conference of 1904, on changing the boundary lines 
between this and the North Indiana Conference ; and that I have 
given this official notice to Leslie J Naftzger, Secretary of said 
Conference. ^^^^ ^ Maxwell, 

South Bend, Ind., Sec'y Northwest Indiana Conference, 

March, 1904. Session 1903. 

S P Colvin, of the Northwest Indiana Conference, then ad- 
dressed the Conference in the interests of the proposed change in 
lines. 

Resolution — H N Herrick introduced the following resolution 
and moved its adoption : 

Having heard the communication from the Northwest Indiana 
Conference, through its duly appointed commission, on change of 
boundary between the North Indiana and the Northwest Indiana 
Conferences ; 

And being unqualifiedly opposed to any change in said bound- 
ary line and also opposed to any action that could possibly be inter- 
preted, directly or indirectly, as favoring such a change ; therefore 



1904] North Indiana Conference 21 

Resolved, That we hereby most courteously acknowledge the 
receipt of the official communication from the Northwest Indiana 
Conference, through its accredited representatives, but respectfully 
decline to appoint the commission called for, or to take any action 
that would in any possible way be interpreted as in the slightest de- 
gree favorable to such a change. 

W D Parr addressed the Conference in favor of the resolution. 
A count vote was called for and the resolution was adopted by a vote 
of 151 for to o against. 

Church Extension Anniversary — The Church Extension 
Anniversary was then held, W D Parr, one of the Assistant Secre- 
taries, in charge. The Church Rallying Song was sung, and W D 
Parr addressed the Conference in the interests of the Society. Bishop 
McCabe also addressed the Conference and sang, " We 're Building 
Two a Day, Dear Tom." A collection was taken for a church in 
Northern Minnesota, which amounted to more than $150. 

Thirteenth Question — The Thirteenth Question was again 
resumed, and the character of C U Wade, Presiding Elder of the 
Muncie District, was passed, and he reported for his District. The 
character of the following effective Elders was passed, and they 
reported their collections : C W Shoemaker, C M Hollopeter, J O

REPORTS. 



AMERICAN BIBLE SOCIETY. 

We have with great satisfaction heard from the field agent for this dis- 
trict ; of the vast work being accomplished by this Society, especially in our 
new possessions and other mission fields. Everywhere the Bible Society is 
the right arm of power, opening homes and hearts for the reception of Jesus 
Christ. Our Conference is to be congratulated on its increasing interest in 
the American Bible Society, manifested in the more than forty per cent, 
increase in our collections since last year. Let, it be remembered that this 
Society alone (so far as this country is concerned) translates and furnishes 
by direct gift, or at nominal cost, the Bible for the poor of our own land and 
our mission fields. 

Therefore, Resolved, Ist. That the apportionment of this Society be seven 
per cent, of the amount apportioned for missions. 

2d. That we indorse Dr. John Pearson as the representative of this 
Society. 

3d. That a favorable hour be set apart during our next Conference ses- 
sion as an anniversary of the American Bible Society.

CHURCH EXTENSION. 

1. We heartily congratulate the Board of Church Extension and the 
Church at large on the great success of their work during this quadrennium, 
and especially on the remarkable financial success of the past year, which 
shows a handsome increase over previous years. 



62 Reports [1904 

2. We reaffirm that our rapidly increasing population and new terri- 
torial additions still need the work of Church Extension, and that our Meth- 
odism, by fostering and strengthening this work, will increase its power to 
do the large work demanded. 

3. That we, as a Conference, will not be content with anything less 
than a full response to the call of the General Committee, until all the peo- 
ple under the protection of the American flag shall be furnished with places 
of worship 

4. That our Presiding Elders be requested to apportion, with care, the 
full amount asked for Church Extension, to the several Districts and pastoral 
charges for collection, and that, availing ourselves of the helps provided by 
tlie Board, we will present this cause in all our charges, and secure at least 
the amount asked, in accordance with the plan of our Discipline. 

5. The collections taken this year in our churches, besides wills and 
bequests, amount to S4,031, showing an actual increase of $135 over last 
year. For the ensuing year our Conference is asked to raise, by collections, 
16,000. Interest, therefore, in our own Conference, as well as in the general 
cause, sliould inspire us to all diligence to secure the full amount asked, and 
if possible go beyond it. 

6. Christianity In Earnest, with its quarterly visits, will furnish to all 
who receive it the latest tidings of this work and its wants. Documents for 
free distribution can be secured by pastors and church committees on Church 
Extension on application to the Board of Church Extension, 1026 Arch street, 
Pliiladelphia, Pa. 

7. We hear, with constantly increasing delight, of the growing effect- 
iveness of Rev W D Parr, D D, of our Conference, as one of the Church Ex- 
tension Secretaries, and appreciated the masterful address delivered by him 
on Church Extension at the anniversary of this Society this year. We 
believe in Dr Parr and in his ability to take care of the great interests 
intrusted to him by the Church. We will heartily welcome him to our 
charges as the representative of the above Society. 

Earle Naftzgeu, Secretary. 



CHURCH INSURANCE. 

We are glad to know that our people are coming to realize more and 
more fully that it is just as much the duty of Methodists to see that their 
churches and parsonages are insured as it is to build them. It is estimated 
that approximately $7,000,000 of the insurance in force with our company, is 
on such property that was formerly uninsured. 

The Board of Insurance, elected by the General Conference of 1896, com- 
pleted the legal corporation in compliance with the Discipline in March, 1899. 
The operations of the first full quadrenninm, which closed with the beginning 
of this year, proved that the inaugurating of this work was a wise action, the 
full importance of which cannot be put into figures. Our church and other 
property, directly in the interest of Methodism, is under protection to the ex- 
tent of $21,278,459.00. The total losses since organization were $106,784.92. 



19045 r North Indiana Conference b3 

It is estimated by the office that approximately one-half of these losses were 
on property that was formerly without insurance. This means that a large 
number of our charges that were weak financially have been saved from 
serious embarrassment, and that Methodism has been saved in some localities 
where rebuilding would have been out of the question but for the assistance 
given by our company. It is of great importance to world-wide Methodism 
that we co-operate in increasing the volume of risks on the well constructed 
and favorably located churches and thus make it easier for those less fortu- 
nately situated to carry insurance, for which, of course, they pay a propor- 
tionately higher rate. While our corporation in compliance with the Dis- 
cipline is avoiding, so far as is safe, the piling up of assets, the views of the 
management are entirely in accord with the conservative laws controlling its 
operations and a cash Reserve has been built up and is held for the protection 
of the policy holders equivalent to that required of stock companies ; but so 
far as is practicable the premium money is left in the hands of tlie members 
until needed to meet the annual payments. 

The Resources of the Company were as follows : Cash Assets, $56,675.51. 
Notes not due, $187,577.31. Total Assets admitted by Insurance Depart- 
ment, $244,252.82. Liabilities: Losses due and unpaid, none. Losses in 
process of settlement, $5,785.00. Sundry accounts payable^ $2,674.89, Reserve, 
held for protection of members, $32,999.93. Assets above all debts and the 
Reserve required by law, $211,252.89. 

While the terms of insurance are much more favorable than those used 
by stock companies, the rates are held sufficiently high to provide for emer- 
gencies, and yet the last annual meeting was able to declare the usual 10 per 
cent, dividend for the fiscal year 1903 as earned on premium payments made 
in 1902. 

It should be remembered that under a decision of the Supreme Court of 
the United States there is no legal difficulty in the way of our churches in- 
suring with our own company. 

The Secretary, Henry P Magill, 57 Washington Street, Chicago, 111, will 
furnish any additional information desired. 



CLASS MEETINGS. 

Whereas, We believe the Class Meeting to be one of the most potent 
factors in developing and increasing the spiritual life of the members of the 
church ; therefore, be it 

Resolved, That, as pastors, we will more faithfully urge our members to 
attend, so far as possible, every service. 

We also recommend that even where Class Meetings are not being held, 
that the office of Class Leader, as the assistant of the pastor in his spiritual 
relations to the membership, be preserved.

EDUCATION. 

THEOLOGICAL SCHOOLS. 

Whatever may have sufficed in the past, we believe that the spirit of the 
times as well as the exigencies of the work of the Church of Jesus Christ in 
the Twentieth Century, will demand a consecrated, educated, and spirit-filled 
ministry. We therefore advise every young man who feels the call of God 
into the work of the ministry, to make a thorough preparation in some one of 
our Theological Schools. 

GARRETT BIBLICAL INSTITUTE. 

This school is situated at Evanston, Illinois, on a beautiful campus by the 
side of Lake Michigan. Access is afforded the students to the new Orington- 
Lunt Library, which contains thirty thousand volumes of well selected books; 
and especial attention is called to the advantages of Prof. Cumnock's School 
of Oratory. 

The faculty of the institution consists of men who are examples in piety, 
eminent in scholarship, and who have profound faith in the divine authority 
of the Scriptures. About one hundred student appointments are available to 
capable men who wish to avail themselves of this assistance. 

BOSTON UNIVERSITY SCHOOL OF THEOLOGY. 

Boston University School of Theology is our oldest school and is unsur- 
passed. Students in this school have great advantages in being admitted into 
any of the University classes without tuition. They have free access to the 
great libraries of the city as well as to the magnificent Art Galleries. The 
excellent literary advantages of the old classic city of Boston are inestimable. 
With an equipment adequate for all demands and a faculty capable, conse- 
crated and thorough, the institution is able to fit men for the highest work 
of the church. 

DREW THEOLOGICAL SEMINARY. 

This Divinity School at Madison, New Jersey, is within an hours' ride of 
New York City, thus affording its students the advantages of a country home 
and contact with great city problems. It is one of our greatest and best 



1904] North Indiana Conference 65- 

equipped schools, situated as it is in the midst of a great metropolitan Con- 
ference, and near the great city of New York it affords a fine opportunity for 
Missionary work. Free scholarships in Columbia and New York Universi- 
ties are extended to those desiring a Doctorate in Philosophy. 

While the Professors keep in touch with all advanced thought, yet they 
prove all things and hold fast only that which is good. 

THE WOMAN'S COLLEGE OF BALTIMORE. 

This College was founded by the Baltimore Conference in connection 
with, and as a feature of the celebration of the first centennial of the organ- 
ization of the Methodist Episcopal Church. 

The aim of this College is to provide young women with facilities for 
thorough collegiate training under conditions favorable to physical and moral 
well-being. It is denominational only in the sense that its discipline is in 
harmony with the views of the church which founded it. The New Testa- 
ment ideal of character is upheld and urged upon students without effort, 
direct or indirect, to influence denominational preferences. 

We deeply sympathize with the friends of this College in the great loss 
they have sustained in the recent conflagration in the city of Baltimore. We 
give to President John F Goucher, D D, a renewed expression of our confi- 
dence in his ability to direct the College through this emergency. 

ILLINOIS WOMAN'S COLLEGE. 

We rejoice in the prosperity and growth of the Illinois Woman's Col- 
lege at Jacksonville, III. This is the only school of our church for women 
exclusively in all the middle West, and we commend it to those of our peo- 
ple who wish to patronize a school for women as a thorough school, and a 
safe and helpful Christian home. 

We deplore the fact that many Methodist parents are sending their 
daughters to schools not in harmony with the discipline of our church, and 
we urge our pastors to vigilance in securing the attendance of our young 
people in our schools. 

THE AMERICAN UNIVERSITY. 

The sainted Bishop Hurst, first Chancellor of the American University, 
looking out upon its future with prophetic eye, once said, "As God by His 
special Providence has led us to every step, so will he lead us in all future 
years, until students from many lands shall enter its halls in quest of light 
from Him who is the light of the world," and we believe that this prophecy 
will be fully realized. Much has already been done toward its realization, so 
that with lands and buildings, with endownment and bequests aggregating 
$2,400,000.00, and with 1500 students already knocking for admission, it seems 
to us that there should be no further delay in opening the University. 

But this cannot be done until the removal of the restriction placed upon 
the Trustees by the General Conference of 1892, which forbids the opening 
of the institution until $5,000,000.00 of endownment above the cost of lands 
and buildings have been secured. We believe this action to have been a mis- 



66 Reports ' [1904 

take, or at least no longer necessary. Like action would have prevented the 
opening of every university in Europe and America. 

We feel sure that with such a body of great men as trustees and the wise 
and capable Bishop McCabe as Chancellor, it will be safe to remove this re- 
striction and launch this great institution upon its career of uplifting the 
world. 

BOARD OF EDUCATION. 

We most heartily commend the work for higher Christian education 
which is being accomplished for the Church through the Board of Educa- 
tion. We especially approve the emphasis upon educational excellence and 
genuine spirituality as the true ideal for our schools. We note with satis- 
faction the report of special gifts to the Board of Education, and unreserv- 
edly commend it to the benevolence of our people, particularly those who are 
able to make large gifts. 

We urge that Childrens' Day be observed and a collection taken in every 
charge according to the Discipline. It is not " Flag Sunday " nor " Flower 
Sunday " nor any festival of the sort. It is the day when the doors of the 
Christian College should be made to open wide for the Christian youth. 
Let it be so observed. 

During the past year the Board aided students who gave their home res- 
idence or Church relationship as within the bounds of our Conference to the 
number of seventeen and to the amount of $1,040.00. The contributions of 
our Conference received by the Board for the year were $1,963.90. Our 
Minutes show a large number of charges not contributing to this fund. 

We commend the officers of the Board for their energy in collecting loans, 
and we urge all beneficiaries within our own Conference to make as prompt 
payment as possible. We commend the Christian Student and the Cokesbury 
Guild to all our people. 

We call upon our people to give liberally of their wealth that our insti- 
tutions everywhere shall be equal to the best. 

We call upon our institutions everywhere to fulfill their high and im- 
portant ministry in behalf of the Church. We call upon parents to conse- 
crate their children to Christ and His service and to give them the best edu- 
cation as a preparation for that service. And we call upon our young men 
and women to give themselves fully to Christ for salvation and service, and 
to seek in a Christian College the highest training for the greatest usefulness. 
Our Church needs a thousand new men each year for the ministry alone. 
The head of the Church is calling for the best. 

We recommend that in view of the location of Taylor University at Up- 
land, no apportionment be made for public education, to the Upland charge. 

TAYLOR UNIVKKSITY. 

This Bchool is located in the bounds of our Conference. It is under the 
control and direction of the National Local Preacher's Association of the 
Methodist Church, and is a fitting memorial and monument to the memory 
of our sainted Bishop Taylor. We commend its work and congratulate the 
institution on having secured Rev C W Winchester, DD, of the Gennesee 
Conference, as its President, as successor to Rev T C Reade, D D, deceased. 



1904] North Indiana Conference 67 

DKPAUW UNIVERSITY. 

We wish first of all to commend the wise and tactful leadership of Rev 
H A Gobin, D D, who so ably directed the affairs of the University through 
restless and perilous times and who has, since our last session, given over the 
direction of the work of the University to Rev Edwin H Hughes, S T D. 

We congratulate the University in the selection of the new President. 
The beginning of his administration is auspicious for a new era of great pros- 
perity. We feel assured that this cause which lies so near to our hearts has 
been placed in safe and competent hands. We are confident that the mem- 
bers of the Conference will give to Dr Hughes their loyal co-operation in 
whatever plans he may suggest. In this critical time in the history of the 
University, special effort ought to be made in securing gifts, creating DePauw 
sentiment, and sending new students to the University. 

We take just pride in the work accomplished by our brother. Rev C E 
Line, D D. The addresses he has delivered, anti. the gifts he has secured, 
have made for him a splendid record as a servant of his Alma Mater. We 
again recommend that fifteen cents per member be apportioned to the charges 
of our Conference for the coming year, which sum shall constitute our 
regular collection for education. 

TRUSTEES AND VISITORS. 

We recommend that Rev John C White be appointed visitor to the 
Illinois Woman's College at Jacksonville, 111, Rev W M Nelson, visitor to 
Boston School of Theology, and Rev J M Canse to Drew Theological Semi- 
nary; Rev H W Bennett, D D, and Rev Chesteen W Smith, visitors to 
Garrett Biblical Institute. 

We recommend that Rev C U Wade, D D, and Rev James A Patterson 
be appointed visitors to DePauw University for a term of two years from 
September 1, 1904. 

We reccomend thfet Hon James F Elliott, and the Hon Hugh Daugherty 
be elected trustees of DePauw University for a term of three years from 
September 1, 1904, and that Wm H Charles be elected to fill out the unexpired 
term of the late M V Beiger. 

Resolved, that this conference extends a most cordial invitation to the Rev 
Edwin H Hughes, S T D, President of DePauw University, to transfer to this 
Conference, and assure him of most brotherly treatment as a member of this 
ecclesiastical body. Respectfully submitted, 

J K Walts, President. 

Edmund F Albertson, Secretary. 



EPWORTH LEAGUE CABINET. 

The work of the Conference Epworth League during the year has been 
carried forward with much discouragement, from the fact of a misunder- 
standing between two of the Districts and the Conference Epworth League 
Constitution as to support and financial aid, making it impossible for the Con- 
ference organization to carry out its plans. 



68 Reports [1904 

With these facts before us it is the sense of the Cabinet that we request 
the Conference to take under advisement the difficulties in the way of di- 
vided support to either abandon the Biennial Convention or urge united sup- 
port. In the interim of the Conventions we cannot consult the body that 
created us, and so turn to this higher court for orders. We obediently await 
your pleasure, either in our discharge or a call for a united forward move- 
ment. In behalf of the Cabinet, 

J F Snyder. Secretary. 



FREEDMAN'S AID AND SOUTHERN EDUCATION SOCIETY. 

Your Committee on Freedman's Aid and Sonthern Education Society beg 
leave to report as follows : 

The work which this great Society is doing for the uplift of the millions 
of the needy white and colored people of the South, deserves not only the cor- 
dial support of all Christian people, but of all patriots as well. 

The results already secured are almost phenominal. Thousands of Chris- 
tian teachers, ministers, physicians, nurses, and men and women trained in 
our industrial schools, have gone forth to help in the elevation of their un- 
fortunate brethern and the larger life of the republic. 

We call special attention to the fact that there were more than three 
thousand six hundred students in the industrial department alone last year, 
and would respectfully request our pastors to emphasize this fact in present- 
ing the work of the society to the people. 

We desire to call attention to the fact also that the Christian Educator 
will be sent to all persons giving one dollar or more to the cause, and we 
suggest that the pastors send in the names of all such subscribers as soon a& 
collection is taken. Tracts also, covering every phase of the Society's work, 
can be had free of charge by writing the Secretaries. 

Your Committee suggests that the Lincoln Birthday Sunday be adopted 
and set apart as the most appropriate time for taking the collection for this 
Society. 

The apportionment to this Conference for the incoming year is $5,400. 

We request the Presiding Elders to apportion to the several Districts our 
apportionment, and pledge ourselves that we will do our best to raise the 
same in full. 

Your Committee but voices the sentiment of the Conference when we 
say that no cause is more worthy of our full sympathy or more desei"ving of 
our enthusiastic support. 

Signed by the Committee. 



HOSPITAL AND DEACONESS WORK. 

We congratulate the entire Church upon the success of the Deaconess 
and Hospital Work, and pledge ourselves as a Conference to do all in our 
power to aid in the construction of the proposed hospital at Indianapolis. 



1904] North Indiana Conference 69 

We join in the suggestion that each licensed Deaconess be allowed anna- 
ally $15.00 for vacation money. 

We recommend that William D Parr be continued on the Board of Hos- 
pital Trustees.

MISSIONARY REPORT. 

Feeling that the Missionary cause is the paramount issue before the 
minds and upon the hearts of our people. We therefore recommend the 
following for adoption and action. 

1. That we congratulate the church on the splendid response given the 
appeals of our pastors for money for missions. 

2. That we will give great encouragement to the Station Plan for raising 
funds. 

3. That we, as pastors, will early in the Conference year plan to raise 
one dollar per member as the minimum for our Missionary Collection. 

4. We will call into action our Missionary Committee and Epworth 
League Committee on Missions and will organize our Sunday Schools into 
Missionary Societies with a full corps of officers, hold regular sessions of the 
Society, and present the cause of Missions in that way which we deem in our 
judgment will be productive of the best practical results for the cause. 

5. We will obtain from our headquarters a supply of literature to aid us 
in giving to our people Missionary information, and thus by the blessing of 
our Divine Lord create a holy enthusiasm in the hearts of our people to carry 
out in fact as well as in profession and spirit, the great commission of Him 
who commanded, "Go ye into all the world and preach my Gospel to every 
creature." 

6. We recommend that the officers of last year be re-elected.

PARSONAGES AND FURNITURE. 

We, the Committee on Parsonages and Furniture, view with great satis- 
faction the progress being made in the attempt to provide a Parsonage Home 
upon every Charge within the bounds of the North Indiana Conference, and 
to add to the convenience, comfort and beauty of the same. 

We would reaffirm the resolution of former years : 

Resolved, That the Presiding Elder be requested at the first Quarterly Con- 
ference, to inquire into the condition of each Parsonage. 

That the local Committee on Parsonage and Furniture be urged to pur- 
chase one or more articles of heavy furniture each year.

PREACHERS' AID SOCIETY. 

The Secretary of the Preachers' Aid Society of the North Indiana Con- 
ference begs leave to report as follows : 

Total Permanent Fund, last report $35,209 

After death bonds 10,475 

This year : — 

Money loaned on unincumbered real estate $27,495 

Money loaned with approved personal security 1,000 

Notes in agents' hands 1,200 

Note given to Permanent Endowment 1,000 

Due from Mrs Chipman's estate 1,000 

Due from M L Beiger's estate (estimated) 6,250 

Real estate at Warsaw, owned by the Society 4,000 

Cash in hands of the Treasurer 300 

Cash in the agents' hands 600 

Good subscription in the agents' hands 1,000 

After death bonds 10,475 

Total $54,320 

A number of wills have been executed, and in which this Society is sub- 
stantially remembered. 

The amount placed in the hands of the Disbursing Committee by this So- 
ciety for the support of the Conference claimants is $1,450. This is $100 more 
than last year, and the largest sum ever realized by the Society for these bene- 
ficiaries. 

C U Wade, Secretary. 



PUBLISHING INTERESTS AND CHURCH LITERATURE. 

Next to the pulpit the Methodist press is our strongest arm of power. We 
do well "to foster it faithfully and to use it effectively. No Methodist can be 
intelligent, loyal and eHicient in the highest sense who does not carefully and 
constantly feed upon our literature. Our books and periodicals are unequaled 
for Methodists in doctrine, quality and price. 

It is superfluous to say that all our Sunday Schools should habitually 
patronize our own publishers for many reasons. We need better methods as 
well as greater persistence in the circulation of our literature, especially our 



1904] North Indiana Conference 71 

books, among our people. The man who finds a practicable solution of this 
enigma will be a benefactor indeed. 

Every member of an Official Board should be expected to take a Christian 
Advocate. It should also be a weekly visitor to as many homes as possible. 

We approve the editorial management of The Western and urge that each 
charge seek for an immediate increase of at least five subscribers, thus adding 
a thousand or more to the Conference list. 

We take special pride in The Epworth Herald on account of its character, 
its circulation and its profits. Its proceeds now equal one-third of the entire 
net earnings of the Book Concern. In view of the splendid history and vital 
importance of these interests, we are happy to note that both of our publish- 
ing houses report an advance of earnings and profit over any previous year of 
their history. With steady and united support at our hands there need be no 
decline in these annual returns. 

Methodist preachers should be scrupulously careful in regard to their book 
accounts. An examination of these accounts emphasizes the necessity of 
better methods, greater promptness and a higher ethical sense in this regard. 
The committee urges that Presiding Elders see to it that the young men whom 
they recommend for admission are conscientious and business-like in this- 
matter. P Ross Parrish,

SUNDAY SCHOOLS AND TRACTS. 

SUNDAY SCHOOLS. 

1. We recognize in the Sunday School one of the most important factors 
in the moral and religious training of the young. The past has proven its effi- 
ciency and forecasts a great future. Its text-book is the Bible ; its teachers 
and ofl&cers are earnest, consecrated men and women of God ; and its work is 
to conserve the moral forces of the Church and State, and prepare the rising 
generation for its part in the struggles and triumphs of our holy Christianity. 
The Methodist Episcopal Church has over 31,000 Sunday Schools, 350,000 
officers and teachers, and 2,600,000 scholars. These figures speak of our 
opportunities and responsibilities. 

2. We believe that our pastors and superintendents in selecting teachers 
should endeavor to select teachers of earnest Christian character, apt to teach, 
and of good repute before the world. 

3. The literature for the Sunday School, published by the Methodist Book 
Concern, is the best for the purpose that can be obtained ; and we urge that 
our Pastors and Presiding Elders see that our literature is used in all our 
Sunday Schools. 

4. We recommend that all special days, as " Childrens' Day, " " Good 
Tidings' Day" and Easter be observed and that the temperance lessons and 
Christmas lessons be used in preference to substitutes. 



72 Reports [1904 

5. We recognize the claims of the Sabbath School Union of the Metho- 
dist Episcopal Church and will earnestly endeavor to raise the amount appor- 
tioned to each Charge. 

TRACTS. 

1. The Tract Society of the Methodist Episcopal Church is doing a good 
and great work throughout the world. Every year 11,000,000 pages of Tracts 
are given away in the United States alone, and $10,000 are sent annually to our 
mission stations to aid in the publishing and circulation of religious literature. 

2. Inasmuch as the Tract Society needs the sum of 850,000 per annum in 

order to carry on its great work, we urge that the amount apportioned to each 

Charge be raised in full. 

C E Line, President. 

Schuyler C Norris, Secretary. 



SOCIAL AND MORAL QUESTIONS. 

We, your Committee on Social and Moral Questions, submit the following 
report : 

Whereas, The success of our Church depends very largely upon our 
attitude and action toward certain moral and social questions; therefore, be it 
Resohed, First, That we realize the importance of greater attention, both 
by education and enforcement of law, to the preservation of our American 
Sabbath. AVe especially deplore the desecration of the Sabbath, making it a 
day of pleasure, such as Sunday excursions, base ball, and like amusements, 
all of which tend to lower the standard of Sabbath observance as taught in the 
AVord of God. We most heartily indorse the Sunday League of America, and, 
as a body, join with it to make the AVorld's Sunday Rest Congress, to be held 
at St. Louis, in October, 1904, a complete success. 

Second, That we will use all our efforts to cause the discontinuance of 
granting divorces on other than Scriptural grounds. 

Third, That we most heartily indorse paragraph No. 248 of the Discipline, 
and emphasize its importance and utility; and we will urge our people to 
recognize and obey our rules, and to abstain from those questionable methods 
of raising funds for the support of the Church.

SUSTENTATION. 

1. There is a need for additional support of pastors who serve the weaker 
Charges of our Conference, and we have no other resources than the Confer- 
ence Sustenation Fund for this support. We feel that our pastors and people 
should be impressed with the need of this cause. 

2. We recommend that the amount of $2,000 be apportioned this year, as 
last, to the Districts, and that the funds collected be applied in the several 
Districts by a committee of three, of which the Presiding Elder shall be 
Chairman. 

3. The Committee has audited the accounts of the several District Com- 
mittees and finds them correct, and respectfully submits the following state-

1904] North Indiana Conference 75 



TEMPERANCE. 

We hereby declare our purpose to secure the absolute, prohibition of the 
liquor traffic. This is our purpose because we are thoroughly convinced of 
the injury wrought by the saloon upon morals and economics, well knowing 
that it creates no commercial value but destroys much of value; and 

Knowing that the saloon is the greatest foe of the church, the home and 
the nation, destroying what we as a Church would create, tearing down what 
we would build up; 

Being convinced that the mission of the Church to build up Christian 
character and a Christian nation, is the highest mission and that this is accom- 
plished as Christ is enthroned in the heart, making Christian character, and 
enthroned in the legislative, executive and judicial branches of the govern- 
ment, ruling and controling the nation as He rules and controls the Christian 
individual, 

Aud further recognizing that the saloonists' willingness to compromise is 
an acknowledgement of the Church's power to destroy it now, 

And being convinced that the license system instead of being a temper- 
ance measure has been the direct cause of the perpetuation and enlargement 
of the liquor business, 

Therefore we desire to declare ourselves dissatisfied with half-hearted 
methods. That we, the North Indiana Conference, will stand where God and 
man have a right to expect us to stand — namely in the front of any battle 
that means the destruction of the saloons of our ward, city, township, state or 
nation. 

We desire to declare ourselves as being in conformity to the action of our 
General Conference, Discipline 1892-1900, in that we "record our deliberate 
judgment that no political party has a right to expect, nor ought it to receive, 
the support of Christian men so long as it stands committed to the license 
policy or refuses to put itself on record in an attitude of open hostility to the 
saloon. But the foregoing must not be considered as in the interest of any 
political party." We also affirm the principle of the Discipline of 1900 that the 
liquor traffic "can never be legalized without sin. Planting ourselves upon- 
the bed rock of that solid proposition, we declare that no citizen and no 
Christian has a right by example, by voice, by influence, or by ballot to con- 
tribute to the establishment or maintenance of the ungodly license policy as 
applied to the liquor traffic." 

Recognizing that the organized liquor interests of our state are making a 
desperate struggle to repeal certain features of the Nicholson law ; but also 

Recognizing that the Christian sentiment of the state demands advance 
temperance legislature now, therefore 

We appeal to our membership to vote for no man, of whatsoever political 
affiliation, who is the friend of the saloon, or who is so faint hearted that he 
will not declare himself in an unmistakable manner opposed to the saloon. 

And further, we recommend to the Anti-Saloon League of Indiana the 
following changes in Section 9, of said bill: 

Ist. To make it possible for the people of any county, incorporated city,^ 



76 Reports [1904 

incorporated town, ward, township or precinct, to remonstrate against the 
saloons in the said county, incorporated city, incorporated town, ward, town- 
ship or precinct. 

2nd.. That one successful remonstrance shall prohibit the granting of 
license to any applicant, in said county, incorporated city, incorporated town, 
ward, township or precinct, for a period of two years. 

We acknowledge the Anti-Saloon League of Indiana, the leader in this 
proposed legislation and we declare our purpose to help them in all possible 
ways, and will welcome their representatives into our pulpits. 

We desire to express ourselves as being in favor of the Hepburn-DoUiver 
Bill now before our National Congress, and that we cannot but look with dis- 
approval upon the failure of any public servant of our territory to support 
this bill ; and that we hereby direct the Secretary of this body to forward this 
our conviction to each and every Senator and Representative from our ter- 
ritory. 

We further 'appeal to our National Government to take action to enlist 
the. civilized nations of the earth in a world movement to prohibit the impor- 
tation and sale of all intoxicants to the half-civilized and un-civilized peoples. 

We hereby express our love and friendship for all who are laboring with 
us for temperance. 

We recommend the reappointment of L J Naftzger, B S Hollopeter and 
Sherman Powell as Trustees to represent us on the State Board of the Anti- 
Saloon League and delegates to the National Convention. 

Believing that the Temperance Reform is the greatest civil reform in 
which we are now engaged, we respectfully ask that provision be made for a 
Temperance Anniversary at the next session of our Annual Conference. 

We desire finally to declare our conviction that we shall be successful in 
this struggle, that the liquor traffic shall be destroyed. In giving us our Gen- 
eral Rules Mr Wesley incorporated rules against two great national sins — 
slavery and the saloon. 

And as the battle against slavery has been won, so shall we win as great and 
complete a victory against the saloon.

WOMAN'S WORK IN THE CHURCH. 

By observation, ami by the history of the church, we are convinced that 
woman's work in the church has been, and still is, in harmony with the plan 
of God, and that He intended that she should do her part in the evangeliza- 
tion of the world. And as God is opening new fields of Christian activity and 



1904] North Indiana Conference 77 

is calling our consecrated women into these fields, at home and abroad, and as 
they are obeying this call, therefore 

Resolved: 1st. That we will encourage in our pastoral charges in every 
way, both in public and private, the development and highest usefulness of the 
auxiliaries of the Home and Foreign Missionary Societies, the Deaconess and 
W. C. T. U. Work, and any other work that they shall put forth for the up- 
building of the Master's Kingdom. 

Resolved: 2nd. That we will welcome all authorized representatives of 

these Societies to our charges, and will do all in our power to help them in 

their noble work. 

C W Shoemaker, President. 

C H Wilkinson, Secretary. 



WOMAN'S HOME MISSIONARY SOCIETY. 

Another page of history of the Woman' Home Missionary Society of the 
North Indiana Conference has been written, and the record clearly indicates 
that we are " growing. " 

The increased interest in our literature and subscriptions to our official 
organs reveals growing intelligence on lines of our work. The increase in 
finance indicates larger hearts, more love to God and humanity, and the in- 
creased membership shows that we are growing in " body. " For this growth 
in mind, heart and body we devoutly thank our Heavenly Father who hath 
given the increase. 

We are pleased to report three new Auxiliaries and two Circles. We now 
have sixty-six Auxiliaries, ten Circles and ten Bands, with a membership of 
2,756, a gain over last year of 259. Several Life Members have been added to 
the list. The Reading Circle Course has been a great help in interesting our 
women in Home Missionary Work. 

Subscriptions to our periodicals are slowly but constantly increasing. The 
Supply Department has been quite active. Supplies valued at $3,612.19 have 
been sent to our ministers on the frontiers and Industrial Schools. 

In addition to the regular work of the Society we support seventeen girls 
in our Industrial Schools, one in the National Training School at Washington, 
D. C, pay the salary of one missionary and assist on salaries of several others. 
Special contributions have been sent to Lucy Webb Hayes and Fisk Training 
Schools ; to Boaz, Alabama ; Marcy Home, Chicago ; Mothers Jewels Home ; 
Italian Work, New Orleans ; Community School, North Carolina; New York, 
Immigrant Work ; Utah and Porto Rico. We are not unmindful of our State 
Work and are raising money for the building fund of our Indiana Methodist 
Hospital and Deaconess Home and have met our assessment for the support 
of the Deaconesses. 

Our Conference is pledged for one thousand new members this year and 
we are confidently expecting every Auxiliary to do all in their power to meet 
this pledge. 

We most heartily appreciate the cordial, faithful support and co-operation 



78 Reports [1904 

of our Presiding Elders and Pastors, the loyal, earnest efforts of our devoted 
women. 

Thankful for the past, we confidently expect, under the guidance of our

80 Resolutuma [1904 



MEMORIAL FROM THE MUNCIE DISTRICT CONFERENCE. 

At the session of the Muncie District Conference held at Montpelier, Indi- 
ana, March 17, 1904 (102 members present), the following resolutions were 
passed : 

Whereas, In the judgment of a large majority of the Board of Bishops 
of our church, in the experience of many Presiding Elders and Pastors, and as 
a desire of a large portion of our large membership, it is deemed best to re- 
turn to a time limit in the appointment of Preachers to the Churches. Be it 

Resohed, That Muncie District Conference hereby petition our Annual 
Conference, to be held at Muncie, April 6, to memorialize the coming General 
Conference to be held at Los Angeles, California, to restore a time limit in the 
appointment of Preachers to their charges. 

Signed, C U Wade, President. 

Wm a Griest, Secretary. 



THANKS. 



Resolved, That we do hereby sincerely appreciate the hearty hospitality 
extended to this Conference by the local churches at Muncie, as well as by 
the citizens generally, who have so kindly opened to us their homes. 

That we thank the Rev E B Randle, DD, for his untiring and thoughtful 
care for our every want, and for the skillful manner in which he and his 
committees have discharged their arduous duties. 

That we return thanks to the Merchants National Bank of Muncie for fa- 
vors extended to our Treasurer in caring for our funds. 

That we praise our Secretaries, the Statistical Secretaries, and the Treas- 
urer and his assistants, for the faithful and skillful manner in which they have 
discharged their duties. 

That we have greatly enjoyed the songs of the North Indiana Conference 
Quartet and return our thanks to the choir of the High Street Methodist 
Church, and to the others who have so sweetly sung our Redeemer's praises. 

That we welcome, for the first time, our beloved Bishop McCabe, express- 
ing our appreciation of his sermon, addresses and exhortations, and our hope 
that we may see him again as our President; that his years of activity in the 
Church may be prolonged ; and that he may find it light and eventide.

J W Cain, 
W B Freeland.

ELIZABETH J. CHAMNESS. 

^^ Elizabeth J Potter, daughter of 

^^^^^^^^ Charles G and Mary Potter, was 

^^^^^^^^^^^^ born in Randolph county, Indiana, 

^^^m^^^^^^g January 4th, 1868, and died in 

\ ^^^^^^^K Richmond, Indiana, May 16, 1903, 

^^ ^H^ ^^fw aged 35 years, 4 months, 12 days. 

W W*^ ^V On April 8th, 1886, she was 

f married to Mr "Wellington Stanley 

who died after a little more than 
two years. About one j^ear after 
'i^a*'**' his death there little daughter, 

Opal, went to the heavenlj' land. 
After her husband's death she 
►.•4 added to the intellectual training 

f\ received in the public schools a 

0j^i^^ special course for teachers in the 

Marion Normal School at Marion, 
*'- Ind. For seven years she was a 

very efficient and successful teacher 
in the public schools, where her 
services were always in demand. 
On April 9th, 1806, she united in marriage with the Rev J P Chamness, a 
member of the North Indiana Conference, Methodist Episcopal Church, who 
is now stationed at the Fifth Street Church, Richmond, Ind. She sustained 
the relations of wife, and mother of the three children of Bro. Chamness, by a 
former marriage, in a manner which not only won their profoundest respect 
and deepest love, but also challenged the admiration of all who knew her. 

In her church relations she possessed a birthright in the society of Friends. 
Converted in early life she remained a member of that church till her marriage 
with Brother Chamness, when she united with the Methodist Episcopal 
Church. As the wife of a minister she was tactful, discreet, modest, resource- 
ful and helpful. She soon found inviting fields for her well trained powers of 
mind and heart. In local and district missionary work her able, willing, and 




1904] North Indiana Conference 91 

untiring services were always instructive, stimulating and highly appreciated. 
While she was strong in every department of Christian work, she perhaps ex- 
celled in her relation to the young life of the church. Her experience in public 
educational work, together with natural adaptation, eminently qualified her 
for directing the Junior League forces, and for superintending the primary de- 
partment of the Sunday School, which she did with great acceptability. 

Of the Christian character of Sister Chamness much might be truthfully 
said by way of eulogy. She possessed the happy faculty of maintaining a 
beautiful Christian spirit in every function of life, whether educational, 
humanitarian, social, or religious. As she mingled with the people in these 
diversified relations all were impressed with the sincerity, nobility, and purity 
of her life. Every member of the church knew that a cordial, Christian greet- 
ing awaited them at the parsonage home. 

She had that perfect love which casteth out fear. Animated with a high 
purpose, sustained by a strong desire to live that she might be useful, she still 
maintained a calm, sweet and peaceful resignation to the will of God. Her 
sufferings for the last year were intense, which called into exercise courage, 
fortitude and great patience. Throughout her great trial she was never known 
to murmur or complain, but greeted every friend who crossed her threshold 
with a smile and a word of hope and good cheer. She was always anxious to 
know her exact physical condition ; her inquiry however never betrayed fear, 
but indicated by word and tone perfect serenity of soul. Not infrequently in 
the morning she would ask her husband if he thought she would go to the 
better land that day. Whatever the answer would be she always gave evi- 
dence that either way — just so it was God's way — it was all right with her. 
Such a life will ever remain a precious memory. 

She leaves a father, mother, four brothers and two sisters whose sorrow 
is mingled with the deep grief of the stricken husband and his three children. 
Earl, Lulu and Ella, for the second time bereft of a faithful companion and 
loving mother. 

The funeral services were held in the Fifth Street Methodist Episcopal 
Church in Richmond. The Rev George H Hill, DD, Presiding Elder of the 
Richmond District, preached the sermon, taking for his text " He (she) being 
dead yet speaketh. " Heb xi: 4. The members of the Richmond Ministerial 
Association attended in a body. Rev E O Ellis read resolutions of sympathy 
and spoke words of comfort in behalf of the Assosiation. 

A special car carried the bereaved family and a large number of relatives 
and friends from Richmond to Dunkirk, Ind, where they were met by the Rev 
F M Stone, who conducted the burial service in the Odd Fellows' beautiful 
cemetery. M S Marble.

Obituary 



[1904 



REV. CLARK SKINNER. 




The Rev Clark Skinner was born in 
Cincinnati, Ohio, August. 30, 1829. His 
early childhood was subjected to some 
very severe trials and tests of his ma- 

K^^ ternal love. In a sketch, found among 

^^ ,-| his papers after his death, he says: 

^^ 'f " Mother was all the world to me; '' and 

'•;^ ^ it was mutual, for the only son was all 

^\f' ^ the world to mother. Nine happy sum- 

' ' ' mers passed, and during that time the 

enemy was on the alert, for the mother 
was stricken with pulmonary disease. 

The hectic flush and ashen hue were 
unmistakable, and the boy with aching 
heart began to divine the end. 

His heart was harassed with the 
thought that separation was coming, 
which the mother would constantly urge upon the young mind was only tem- 
porary. 

Notwithstanding this, the chill would come in the thought of substituting 
the cold world for a mother's heart-warmth. In a world with no nestling 
place was more terrible than leaving it. Fortune's smiles had fled, and it had 
been for years a mother's struggle with poverty, and in this struggle the little 
son, beyond his years, had given himself. The mother's request was his in- 
spiration continually. If he could succeed in trundling home upon his little 
rudely made wagon a load of waste gathered by the wayside or from the far- 
off woods, as the only supply to give comfort, with what exultation he would 
report at mother's bedside. If with her pale, thin hand she would stroke his 
head and speak of the comfort it would afford in the preparation of some sim- 
ple delicacy, and of the cheer and warmth this their only fuel would produce, 
he was more than repaid. His young heart would swell with manly vigor 
prophetic of what he would do when abler. It was his delight to minister 
when possible at her bedside. If a flower or a cup of water could be presented, 
or a hand's turn of any kind, it was a mutual cheer. 

It was the day before her death that he undertook, at her request, to read 
a beautiful hymn full of rapturous hope for the future ; and in making the at- 
tempt his utterance choked, his eyes filled, and he utterly broke down in sev- 
eral attempts. After her death, to his childish heart this was a case of disobe- 
dience and he felt he would give worlds could he have granted her request. 
Her last words were " All is well, " and this was doubtless fully verified 
in the greeting already enjoyed. 

Then came the ordeal of separation from two younger sisters living with 
distant relatives— too distant in natural ties to fill the great vacancy or assuage 
the deep grief that sat upon the young life. 



1904] North Indiana Conference 93 

An instance had occurred at the beginning of the year in which the mother 
died which seemed to key the life of the boy. 

He attended a series of meetings held in a Presbyterian church of which 
his parents were members. No attention was given to any interest that a 
comparatively young boy took in the services. He soon began to realize that 
an unseen power was moving his heart. He wrestled with it, and one night 
when he retired to bed he was so much concerned that he greatly feared that 
he might not live to see the dawn of another day and that if he should not his 
soul must be eternally lost because of his sin. His sleep was disturbed by 
distressing dreams. At one time in the night his anxiety was so great that he 
called to his mother and asked if she thought he could be forgiven. She evi- 
dently did not understand his case and simply responded, " Hush, child, and 
go to sleep. " There was no help or comfort from any source. It was late in 
the morning when he awoke to see the sun pouring its light in at the window. 
That was symbolic of another more glorious sunlight which only waited to fill 
the chambers of his soul. His first impression was, " I was mistaken in con- 
cluding I could not live until morning. I may be mistaken in concluding 
there is no help nor forgiveness for me. Oh, it may be that I can be forgiven. 
I will pray. " He immediately got out of bed and fell upon his knees and at- 
tempted to pray. The absurdity of it seemed to at once confront him, but he 
was determined to pray as best he could. A few sentences were uttered, 
when he began to realize marked freedom of access to God and a blessed con- 
sciousness that he was taking hold of help, a verity of the Savior to whom he 
was praying, as much as if he saw him in the room. Christ was indeed a glo- 
rious reality to him ; " then came the full blaze of realization, a happy, joyous 
consciousness of forgiveness. " 

How many fail to understand that the Holy Spirit of God does in reality 
move upon the hearts of children. 

When grown up to young manhood Brother Skinner taught school in Cin- 
cinnati and prepared for college, and was educated in Wabash College, located 
at Crawfordsville, Indiana. He was admitted into the North Indiana Confer- 
ence at its session in Muncie forty-eight years ago in September, its last fall 
session. 

Three of his class-mates are now superannuated members of the Conference 
and another, Dr D J Starr, a member of the Cincinnati Conference, is Chaplain 
of the penitentiary at Columbus, Ohio. In 1858, Brother Skinner was trans- 
ferred to the Northwest Indiana Conference and was also, for a short time, a 
member of the Wisconsin Conference, but was re-transferred to the Northwest 
Indiana. In 1873 he was transferred to the North Indiana Conference, and 
again in 1888 became a member of the Northwest Indiana, and in 1893 returned 
to the North Indiana Conference, showing the flexibility of our economy and 
that it is readily adjusted to suit any peculiar conditions. 

He was pastor in some of the principal towns and cities of Indiana such as 
Crawfordsville, Laporte, South Bend, Terre Haute, Greencastle, Fort Wayne, 
Newcastle, Muncie and Goshen, and from 1880 to 1884 Presiding Elder of the 
Richmond District. In 1884 he was elected delegate to the General Conference 
which convened in Philadelphia. 



94 Obituary [1904 

About the year 1857 Brother Skinner was married to Miss Nannie C 
Sewell, who was the mother of his five children, and on January 2, 1870, they 
were left motherless. 

On the 8th of February, 1871, he was married to Miss Martha E Voliva, 
who is now the bereaved widow. 

For a few years he held a supernumerary relation to his Conference and 
in 1901 took a superannuated relation. 

For several years past he was, at times, very much afflicted so that he 
dared not venture to attend the sessions of his Conference, which had been to 
him an enjoyable privilege. After thirty-one years of effectiveness in the 
ministry, he lived in their home in South Bend, Indiana, and was always ready 
for any service that he could render to the church. His pastor said, on the 
occasion of the funeral, that he was abundant in labors, supplied many pulpits, 
and ministered to the spiritual wants of a larger number of people. 

His Christian experience seemed to grow brighter and more intensely 
satisfactory down to the very close of his earthly life. A letter received from 
him just before the last annual session of our Conference, breathed a very deep 
and earnest Christian spirit and evinced a readiness to depart and be with 
Christ whenever he might call for him. 

His pastor, Dr E P Bennett, of the First Methodist Church, South Bend, 
says that near the close of his life " I came into his home ; a few hours only 
seemed to be left him on earth. As we gathered around his bed he was able 
to respond only by a nod of the head, to questions asked. When he was asked 
if the Lord was with him, he nodded assent. Then a very beautiful scene was 
enacted before my eyes, while two of his children recited a little poem, written 
by their father, as a response to the Mercy and Help Department of the Ep- 
worth League, that had remembered him with a gift of flowers. 

These were the words: — 

"Here is the worn, the tattered tent 

Wherein I lived so long. 
Fluttering still with many a rent 

Caused by tempests strong. 
Soon renewed on solid shore — 

Pitched under fairer skies — 
You'll And me waiting in the door, 

Waiting with expectant eyes. 

"Life's mantling shadows deepen now, * 

Yet soon the clouds will lift, 
For as I gaze with wistful brow 

Radiance flashes from a rift. 
Don't let me wait, forever wait, 

In throbbing expectation. 
But meet me close within the gate 

In wondrous exultation." 

Then on June 1, 1903, he closed his eyes on the faces of his loved ones on 
earth, to open them on those who had gone before and on the face of Him 
who said, " Father, I will that they also whom Thou hast given me be with 
me where I am that they may behold my glory which thou hast given me."

MRS. HANNAH M. BARNES 




Was born in Groveland, Livingstone 
County, N Y, in the year 1813. At the 
age of eighteen she was married to Hor- 
atio N Barnes, who became one of the 
most honored and effective members of 
North Indiana Conference, serving in 
some of the most important stations, and 
several times Presiding Elder. She was 
his faithful wife in those days when 
their ministry associated with hard cir- 
cuits, mud roads, cabin preaching, log 
schoolhouses, camp-meetings and wide- 
spread revivals. She was a quiet woman, 
with a well-balanced mind and a sweet 
and cultivated heart. The virtues and 
graces of the Christian religion seldom 
find a more splendid exhibition or a more 
beautiful adorning than were manifested in her long and eventful life. 
She lived in many cities, and bore the contact of many people. She tried the 
evolution of Methodism for nearly one hundred years without a stain upon 
her character or a blight upon her record. She was marvelously like the good 
man by whose side she so long and faithfully wrought. Brother Barnes died 
in Pasadena, Cal, February 15, 1896, at the age of ninety years. She died in 
the same city, June 16, 1903, at the same age, ninety years. Her life simply 
ebbed away, with comparatively little pain, and her soul had wondrous tri- 
umph through faith. Death was completely under her feet, and her face was 
radiant with Christian hope. She was buried from the First Methodist Epis- 
copal Church, of which she was a cherished member. She was the mother of 
eleven children, of whom five yet survive, namely : Erastus Barnes, of Pomo- 
na, Cal ; Mrs Rev F A Hardin, of Rock River Conference ; Mrs H M Martin- 
dale, widow of the late Rev Charles Martindale ; Mrs Rev W J Vigus, of North 
Indiana Conference, and Mrs Ellen J Magee, of Pasadena, Cal. Funeral serv- 
ices were conducted by the writer, assisted by Rev Dr A C Manwell. The 
body was laid to rest beside the body of her husband in beautiful Mountain 
View Cemetery, Pasadena. A W Lamport.

LOUISE S. NAFTZGER. 

Louise S, daughter of George C and 
Emma Smith, was born in Centerville, 
Indiana, April I2th, 1874, and departed 
this life at her parsonage home in the 
city of Logansport, Indiana, on the after- 
noon of September 18th, 1903, aged 29 
years, 5 months and 6 days. All of her 
early life was spent at Centerville where 
she attended the common and high 
school, receiving such education as they 
were able to impart. 

She was married to Rev Earle F Naftz- 
ger, April 7th, 1897, and to this union 
one son, Robert, was born. During her 
married life she shared the work of the 
ministry with her husband in the follow- 
ing charges : Centerville one year, Char- 
lottsville four years and for the past two 
years at Market Street Church, Logans- 
port. In all of these charges she was a real helpmeet to her husband, cheer- 
ing, comforting or encouraging as he had need. In all the responsibilities that 
came upon her as daughter, wife or mother, she was the very personification 
of faithfulness and devotion. 

In her childhood she was baptized in the Cumberland Presbyterian 
Church, but became a member of the Methodist Episcopal Church in Center- 
ville in the year 1888, during the pastorate of the Rev J W Bowen. In her 
religious life she was never demonstrative, but clear, trustful and faithful. 
Her cult would find expression in these words of the poet: 

" I am thine O Lord, I have beard Thy voice, 
And it told Thy love to me, 
But I long to rise in the arms of faith, 
And be closer drawn to Thee." 

She had no doubt, she had no fear, she knew Christ as a living personal 
reality, but it was not her disposition to always give audible expression to her 
inward musings, yet in her heart was a testimony that was ever satisfying to 
her own mind and she longed to grow more and more into the likeness of her 
Lord. 

When she became the wife of a minister, she realized that new respon- 
sibilities would doubtless come upon her, and while she never courted any 
position, yet she never refused to perform such service as the Lord asked of 
her, nor shrank from duty. Again her desires can find expression in the 

words of the poet: 

" Consecrate me now to thy service, Lord, 
By the power of grace divine ; 
Let my soul look up with a steadfast hope 
And my will be lost in thine." 



1904] North Indiana Conference 97 

In her work she was a constant inspiration to all who knew her, and ten- 
derly loved by all the people whom they served. Perhaps there was no place 
where her light shined brighter than in her own home ; here her quiet, yet 
positive life was a constant benediction to her husband. Her very disposition 
was a sedative to the nervous, energetic temperament belonging to him. She 
rested and helped him by her quietness. She very much enjoyed entertaining 
her friends in her home and did it with a quiet grace and dignity, free from 
worry and fluster, that at once made her guests feel that they were welcome 
and giving her no special extra care. This made it a real pleasure to be in her 
home. And while every detail received the most careful attention, at the 
same time she found time and opportunity to assist her husband much in his 
work and to give attention to the services of the house of God, both in the 
regular and special services of the Church, 

While of a retiring disposition naturally, she possessed social qualities of 
a high order and many will rise up in the charges they served and bless her 
memory as one who assisted them greatly in the social duties of life. Her 
death, from an earthly standpoint, seems untimely ; she was cut down when 
greatly needed and in the midst of her usefulness. The summons came unex- 
pectedly and almost without premonition. Her last illness was of only ten 
days' duration and seemed to be a sickness unto death from the very begin- 
ning, and all the skill of the physicians and the constant attention of kind 
friends had no effect upon the disease, but steadily and continuously she grew 
worse until, " she was not, for God had taken her ." 

Her last hours were conscious and peaceful. On the night before her 
translation her husband asked her if she realized her serious illness. She re- 
plied that she did. He then asked her if she felt reconciled to die, and she 
replied that " while she longed to live and work for the Master and for her 
family, she was ready if it was His will to call her now." He then asked if 
she found Christ precious, and she replied : " yes. He is very near to me." 

A noble, pure life has ended ; a sincere. Christian woman has gone out 
from us; we feel poorer, but rejoice in the wonderful life that has unfolded to 
her vision. She rests from her labors, but her works will follow her. 

Funeral services were held in the Market Street Church at Logansport on 
Saturday at 11:00 a.m., conducted.in the absence of Dr Herrick, Presiding Elder, 
because of sickness, by Dr Parrish, pastor of Broadway Methodist Church, 
assisted by Martin Cause, of Wheatland Avenue, and other pastors of the city. 
A beautiful tribute from the Pastors' Association of the city was spoken by 
the Rev Huckelberry, of the Baptist Church. The remains were then taken 
to Centerville, Indiana, for final interment. Here services were held on Mon- 
day, September 24th, at 2:00 p. m. in the Methodist Church, in charge of the 
pastor and Presiding Elder, Rev George H Hill, D D. The sermon was 
preached by the Rev Dan H Guild, the music being furnished by the Confer- 
ence Quartet, Rev Sherman Powell taking the place of Rev Earl F Naftager. 
A number of the pastors of the Richmond District were present.

ROBERT F. BREWINGTON. 




Robert F Brewington was born near 
Chesterville, Dearborn Co, Ind, Novem- 
ber 8, 1832. 

He grew up on a farm and was a 
Christian in early life and showed a love 
for study and learning. He made prep- 
aration for college and was the first male 
graduate of Moore's Hill College, gradu- 
ating in 1859. He then became superin- 
tendent of the public school at Wright's 
Corner, Ind, and not long after accepted 
a professorship in his alma mater, and, 
upon the resignation of President Sam- 
uel R Adams to accept the chaplaincy 
of the Twenty-sixth Indiana Regiment, 
he became the acting president of the 
institution. In 1862 he was elected pres- 
ident of the College, but declined that he 
might accept the first lieutenancy of Company K, Sixty-eighth Regiment of 
Indiana Volunteers. In 1863, because of severe lameness in one foot, he re- 
signed that position and was soon elected as superintendent of schools in 
Greensburg, Ind. 

In 1865 he was again elected to a professorship in Moore's Hill College 
and again resigned that he might accept the superintendency of schools in 
Vevay, Ind, where he remained during five years. 

In 1872 he was admitted into the Southeastern Indiana Conference and 
was appointed to Vernon charge, but was soon appointed to the chaplaincy of 
the Soldiers' Orphans' Home, at Knightstown, Ind, where he remained sev- 
eral years, acting for some time as superintendent of that institution after 
the death of Dr Wishard. 

At the earnest solicitation of the writer, who was then Presiding Elder of 
Muncie District, he came in the summer of 1879 to supply the Dunkirk charge 
on account of the death of the pa.stor, and at our annual session in 1880, 
Bishop Foster announced his transfer to the North Indiana Conference. He 
was afterward pastor at Pendleton, Mishawaka and Nappanee. 

FeeVjleness of health, caused by severe hemorrhages of the lungs, necessi- 
tated several of the changes which have been noted. 

He was a man of such noticeable capabilities, having intelligence, an ex- 
cellent judgment couple<l with an amiable Christian spirit, that people would 
not refrain from urging him to accept positions and they showed a disposition 
often to risk failures in his service which he himself felt that he could not 
conscientiously allow them to do, for the work's sake. 

Dr Brewington was twice married. In the words of one who knew her 
well, his first wife was the beautiful and accomplished Miss Valaria Soper, a 



1904] North Indiana Conference 99 

graduate of his alma mater. For about ten years he was blessed with her lov- 
ing and elevating companionship. One sweet little son, the offspring of this 
marriage, was plucked by death when the bud was tender and most 
beautiful. 

Again on November 6, 1878, he was married to Miss Maggie Shaw, of 
Vevay, Indiana. Some of us here today can bear cheerful testimony to the 
wisdom of that choice. A blessed Christian woman of intelligence and cul- 
ture, and who, like himself, had been for years a teacher, and was found to be 
to him, in his pastoral work, a most charming helper in the work of the Lord. 
After the Lord took her, in the spring of 1898, for other service with the just, 
made perfect, how often he said to the writer, " How lonely. is the way since 
Maggie went home." It was not because he lacked the comforting fellowship 
of Him who wept with Mary and Martha, for it was that same blessed Lord, 
who made us, that said "it is not good for man to be alone," and that seems 
to most forcefully teach us that the very fullest fruition of His own glorious 
and transforming fellowship on earth, comes to a man or woman in the holy 
Christian unity of that twain which infinite wisdom and goodness has ordained. 

After Dr Brewington's health so failed that he could not continue in the 
pastorate he was for a short time Editor of the Knightstown Banner, and feel- 
ing encouraged in this work he decided, in order to the more rapid recovery 
of his health, to make a change to the climate of California ; and there again 
he made purchase of a newspaper and managed that long enough to ascertain 
that it was to him a splendid success, financially, as well as otherwise. 

We now come, however, to a marked manifestation of his noble, stalwart 
Christian character and manhood. 

After some time had elapsed he learned that if he would conserve his 
financial prosperity and avert almost certain ruin to his business, by boycott, 
he must allow in his paper abundant advertising space, and, through it, hearty 
and repeated endorsement to the wine business, for in that section was one of 
its strongholds. 

He had believed with all his heart what his Lord and Master had said, 
" Ye cannot serve God and Mammon." He would not try, as thousands have 
done, to prove his Lord a liar, and even declare by their hypocritical profes- 
sions that they have succeeded in the effort. He had never attempted such a 
terribly wicked thing and he would not, but adjusted affairs and came away. 

Over forty-six years ago I became acquainted with Dr Brewington, when 
both of us were teachers in the schools. Thirty years ago that acquaintance- 
ship ripened into most intimate and confidential friendship. It is surely a 
most encouraging feature in any man's life when he learns that there is any- 
thing in himself that delightfully and promptly responds to the drawing and 
holy influences of a truly good man. 

I have known somewhat intimately many pure and noble men, but surely 
no one who was more so than Brother Brewington. I call him brother, yes. 
Notwithstanding our years of confidential friendship he never spoke of his 
honors, and I never, with certainty, knew until on the occasion of his funeral 
that he had been honored with the degree of Doctor of Divinity. There would 



100

[1904 



have been no wickedness in the matter if he had, with his usual humility, told 
me ; but it is doubtful whether he ever thought of it when we were together. 

He had also been chaplain of the Grand Lodge of Odd Fellows of Indiana. 
He was likewise a member of the Adams Post No. 354 G. A. R., Department 
of Indiana. 

After some years of very feeble and imperfect health he swept through 
the gates of pearl into his heavenly mansion on October 6, 1903, from the 
home of a dear sister, Mrs Warner, who lived in sight of their childhood 
home. At her home he had received the warmest welcome, and from her and 
another dear sister and other relatives the most tender and faithful watch- 
care. 

A large multitude of his early friends, like Jesus at Bethany in the long 
ago, wept with the two sisters. An aged brother in distant Iowa could not be 
present. 

By special request made years ago — if he should go first — I was present to 
conduct the services and was assisted by his pastor, Dr J W Dashiell, who had 
prepared an interesting and appreciative sketch of his life. Dr Frank G 
Browne, of the Western Christian Adrocate, was present and spoke most beau- 
tifully of the esteem and affection held and felt for him by the members of the 
^orth Indiana Conference. 

Brethren of the Conference, if you had heard him you would have heart- 
ily and most gladly endorsed every word that he spoke for you. 

Foralittle while, farewell, dear brother; we will meet thee in the morning!

ELLEN SMITH. 

Ellen Smith, whose maiden name was 
Kennedy, was born in Allegheny county. 
Pa, April 1, 1826. 

Using her own words, she was of 
Scotch-Irish parentage and was early im- 
bued with the stanch, though somewhat 
stern, religious principles of Scottish 
Presbyterian Protestantism. 

When sixteen years of age she united 
with the Methodist Episcopal Church, 
with which she held an unbroken con- 
nection until she was removed to the 
Church Triumphant. 

She was a teacher for several years in 
eastern Ohio, and in 1849 was married to 
Mr David Aber, of Carroll county, with 
whom she lived a life of the most ideal 
Chriptian and marital happiness for 
twenty-three years, when the husband of her youth " was not, for God took 
him."'

1904] North Indiana Conference 101 

In 1874 she was again married, this time to the Eev Benjamin Smith, an 
honored and greatly beloved member of the North Indiana Conference. That 
blessed union, as she herself characterized it, lasted for nearly twenty-one 
years, and then Brother Smith went home to God. 

Sister Smith was indeed a noble Christian woman, and the Church, com- 
posed of such members, would soon, under the divine blessing, take this 
world for Christ without making any parade. 

She was intelligent, aggressive in the very best sense of that word, and 
there was no interest connected with the establishment of God's Kingdom on 
earth that did not have her sympathy and personal aid. Her pastors could 
depend upon her in every line of work. She had been blessed with financial 
ability and was always recognized as among the most liberal. 

She was greatly interested in foreign missions to the heathen, and was for 
years the Corresponding Secretary of the Woman's Foreign Missionary Soci- 
ety of the North Indiana Conference, an auxiliary of the Northwestern 
Branch. 

She made bequests to the Woman's Foreign Society, and to the Parent 
Missionary Board; also to her nephew, the Rev David H Lee, for the benefit 
of a school in India with which he is connected, which bequests will likely 
amount to about $500 for each. The larger part of two bequests has already 
been paid over to the Woman's Society and to the pastor of the High Street 
Church in Muncie, and will go to the credit of that Church. 

Bequests were made to relatives, and to Mrs Irene Hammers and her 
daughter Maude she gave her comfortable and commodious home in Muncie, 
they being granddaughters of Brother Smith, and who had for some years 
given to Sister Smith affectionate and faithful watch-care. 

She had already, before her death, given to the De Pauw University over 
$3,000, and through E F Hasty to the Preachers' Aid Society over $1,400. 

The departure of Sister Smith from our midst was very sudden. She retired 
to rest on Friday night in her usual health, and as she did not make her ap- 
pearance as formerly in the morning, upon investigation she was found lying 
in her bed apparently unconscious, from which condition she could not be 
rallied, but very soon, as we fully believe, passed to her heavenly home on 
Saturday morning, October 31 ,1903. 

" It is not death to close 

I'he eye long dimmed by tears, 
And wake in glorious repose 
To spend eternal years, 

'• It is not death to fling 

Aside this mold'ring dust 
And rise on strong, exulting wing 
To live among the just. 

" Jesus, Thou Prince of Life, 
Thy chosen cannot die ; 
Like Thee, they conquer in the strife. 
To reign with Thee on high. " 

E F Hasty.

WILLIAM B. RANDOLPH. 




The Angel of Death knows no friends. 
He recognizes neither age nor sex, years 
of service, nor worth of character. His 
blow is alike deadly upon whoever it 
falls. When a few weeks ago it fell upon 
our brother, William B Randolph, we 
were, nearly all, much surprised. Al- 
though he had been a member of this 
Conference for more than 16 years, yet 
few of us were well acquainted with him. 
Not because of any fault of his or ours, 
but because ill health had taken him out 
of the ranks of the ettective ministry be- 
fore he had been able to give more than 
a few years of service to the work of the 
Church. 

Brother Randolph was born in Shelby 
county, Ohio, November 12, 1858. While 
he was yet young he came with his parents to Indiana and settled in Hunt- 
ington county, where he grew up to manhood. 

On April 5, 1885, he was married to Miss Laura Miller of the same county. 
A part of the two years that elapsed between his marriage and his entrance 
into the work of the ministry was spent in the city of Huntington. In the 
spring of 1887 he responded to the call of the Master to enter the work of the 
ministrj', and joined the North Indiana Conference which met at Marion. He 
•was appointed by Bishop Hurst to Lewisville and Ogden, which he served one 
year. In 1888 he served Knightstown Circuit and in 1889, Fountain City 
charge. Brother Randolph was considered able in prayer and a good sermon- 
izer. In addition to these, he put his accustomed energy and zeal into his 
work in the ministry, that he had while on the farm. 

His hard study in connection with his intense energy and zeal in this new 
field of labor was more than his untrained nervous system could bear; the 
result of which was that while he was still on the Fountain City charge, he- 
suffered a general nervous break down. Thinking that this was only temporary 
and that he would soon recover sufficient to again take up the work, he was 
granted a Supernumerary relation, by the Conference in 1890. In the hope 
that more active employment would be beneficial in the restoration of his 
healtii he engaged in secular employment, being part of the time employed as 
a commercial traveler. Thinking that he was now able to take up the work 
again, he was made eflfective in 1895 and .stationed at Sweetzer. But sore dis- 
appointment was again his part, for at the end of one year he found it neces- 
sary, on account of his health, to again ask for a Supernumary Relation which 
was granted him by the Conference. He continued in this relation until the 
spring of 1901, when he was placed on the Superannuate list. 



1904] North Indiana Conference lOS 

Notwithstanding his persistent efforts to regain his health, he was unable 
to do so, the terrible nervous trouble growing worse rather than better. 
About three weeks before his death, in the hope of some improvement under 
better conditions, he was taken to a hospital in Logansport, but alas, even in 
this he and his friends were doomed to disappointment. He lingered in the 
terrible agony of Spinal Meningitis, which had been caused by general nerv- 
ous prostration, until February 10, 1904, when, at the age of 45 years and 3 
months, his soul was set free from the body of suffering to be with God. He 
leaves a wife and three children, Miss Fern, Masters Foster and Paul, together 
with an aged mother, three brothers and two sisters. 

Nowhere more than in contrasting the operations of divine Providence in 
the affairs of men, with our own plans and hopes for them, are the words of 
Isaiah made plain where he says, " ' My ways are not your ways,' saith Jeho- 
vah." None but those who have entered the ranks of our holy ministry know 
the awfulness of the disappointment that overtakes a man called of God to the 
work of the ministry, and finds, notwithstanding all his personal efforts, he 
cannot respond to the call. But we are comforted in the hope of the future 
when these eyes shall see and know and these ears shall hear and shall under- 
stand. So our brother shall see Him face to face, and hear His words of di- 
vine grace, why the will was taken for the deed and it was best to lay down 
thus early his life that had been given to the Kingdom. 

The body was taken to Huntington for burial, and where the funeral serv- 
ices were conducted in the Methodist Episcopal Church by his pastor, Rev J 
H Runkle, of Marion, assisted by Revs T M Guild and F A Robinson, of 
Huntington, on Saturday afternoon February 13, 1904. After the services in 
the church the body was laid away in the Mount Hope Cemetery, to await 
the call of God to a life of eternal triumph with the redeemed in glory.

REPORT OF COMMITTEE ON RESOLUTIONS. 

Your Committee report as follows : 

Resolved, That we memorialize the General Conference to adopt the report 
of the Book Committee relative to the consolidation of our publishing in- 
terests.

No. 248 in the body of the Discipline.

Resolved, That we memorialize the General Conference to replace the 
" Time Limit. "

bright prospects of De Pauw University. We recognize this institution as 
most worthy of our appreciation and support. That we extend to Dr Edwin

ise him our earnest support in securing means and students for the increased 
usefulness of the University.

Resolved, That we re-affirm our unswerving allegiance to the position held 
by our Church concerning the legalized liquor traffic as expressed in our Dis-

ism would be conserved with a less number of Districts, we request the Annual 
Conference to reduce the present number as soon as they can arrange for it. 

Resolved, That this Lay Electoral Conference extend to the people of Mun- 
cie our sincere thanks for their royal hospitality during our Conference, and 
to the Trustees of the Presbyterian Church for the use of their building.

The following Record is a continuation of that prepared by Rev. L. W. • 
Monson, as found in his valuable Manual, and is brought down to 1903. An 
effort is made to condense as much as possible by using abbreviations easily 
understood. The figures " 18 " and " 19 " are omitted from the years given,. 
as all the appointments are in these two centuries. In some instances no 
record is made of services in other Conferences, because of the lack of data.

" I admire a miner's wealth. There is no blood, nor are there tears on it." — Rev. Rahert Mclntyre. 

Is buying mining stock, in a company whose aim is to de- 
velop and operate mines, speculation ? 

Would buying stock in a company, whose aim would be to 

purchase land, improve and farm it, be speculation ? 

These are identical in character and purpose. 

The Idaho-Oregon Mining Company 

OF KOKOMO. IINDIAINA, 

Own two mining properties, located in the famous gold belt of Eastern Oregon, 
that is noted for the uniform success of every well-managed mine of importance 
in the district. There has not been a single instance, where good values have 
been found on the surface of a true fissure vein, that it has not continued as 
far down as developed. The United States Government's Twenty-second An- 
nual Report of the Geological Survey, three years ago, predicted that these veins, 
upon which our properties are located, would continue to the greatest depth ever 
attained in gold mining. 

The Pubv Mine ^^ located on the North Pole Vein, upon which the 

rL four big mines of the State are situated, and it has 

proven mines adjoining it at both extremities. On the surface it has shown the 
highest average values at the same level yet found upon this wonderful vein, 
conceded to be the greatest in the world. 

The Rartholf Oroun ^^"^^^"^^ °^ ^^^ quartz and two placer claims, in 

— the Gold Ridge mining district. The vein is 

from three to nine feet in width, and has a length of almost two miles. We 
have based our estimates of ore on an average of ^lo.oo per ton, and if it does 
that it will become one of the great mines of the Northwest. The average, so 
far, in the upper part of the vein, has been ^45.00 per ton. There is enough 
ore in sight to keep a ten^stamp mill busy several months, and contains enough 
values to cover every dollar that will be expended on the property to place it 
on a producing basis. This makes the original investment absolutely secure. 

WE INVITE INVESTIGATION, AND MAKE THIS PROPOSITION: 
We will give one thousand shares of stock, now worth i 5 cents per share, to any 
one who will, either personally or through a representative, visit and investigate our 
properties in Eastern Oregon ; and this stock is yours whether you buy or not. 
This offer is made in good faith, and all we ask is that the party taking advantage 
of it is in a position to invest $500.00 or more in stock, if he finds everything 
satisfactory. The stock will more than cover the cost of the trip. Anyone seeing 
the properties and the surrounding mines, with their great mills and reducing plants, 
can come to only one conclusion — that we have the most promising properties in 
this wonderful storehouse of riches.

Situation ^ ''*^ Woman's College of Baltimore is situated near the northern 
boundaries of the city of Baltimore, Md., in the new and pleasant 
residence section, one hundred and fifty feet above tide-water. 

The buildings are seven in number — three devoted to instruction and 
DUlluin^S administration, three to residence. All are new, cheerful and 

commodious, erected particularly for their respective purposes and 
containing the conveniences devised by modern architectural science. They are 
heated from a battery of boilers and lighted by electricity from the new I'ower 
house of the College. 

PrFiif»P»tinn?»I -^"iP'^ ^"^ thoroughly furnished laboratories facilitate study of 
£:>UUCaliun<il ^j^g natural sciences by modern methods. The apparatus is of 
Euuipment recent type, carefully selected. Maps, charts, engravings, 
photographs and cabinets of specimens and of objects illus- 
trating natural history and the development of the race are liberally provided. 
There is a good, modern working library of about ten thousand volumes, while 
half a million volumes are at the service of students in public and institutional 
libraries easily accessible. 

The course of study includes prescribed subjects and 
CiOUrSG of Study elective subjects in about equal proportions. Students 

who wish to follow particular lines of study are enabled 
to lay a solid foundation for subsequent specialization. Elective courses are 
offered in Greek, Latin, French, Spanish, Italian, German, English Literature, 
including Old and Middle English, Mathematics, Geology, Mineralogy, Physics, 
Chemistry, Botany, Biology, History, Economics and Sociology. Upon the 
completion of a course usually requiring four years, the student is graduated 
with the degree of Bachelor of Arts. 

Physical Train^ Every candidate for the degree is required to pursue a 
, .course in physiology and hygiene. A commodious 

in§ and lly^IBne modern gymnasium provides systematic exercises accord- 
ing to the Ling, or Swedish, method under careful 
trainers and supervision of a physician specially prepared in mechanical thera- 
peutics. Halls are provided for basket ball and courts for tennis and similar 
sports. Care is taken to prevent excess in these exercises. 

■p x These are the usual requirements of Eastern Colleges and 

*^ should be met by graduates of good high schools in which at 

BcQuif CnientS 'east one language in addition to Latin is embraced in the 
course of study. Certificates of prejiaration which furnish 
full details will be considered when offered by schools previously accredited and 
if found sufficient will be accepted as substitutes for examination, otherwise 
examinations will be necessary. Certificates of the College Entrance Examina- 
tion Board are accepted. 

The College is now C1904) entering upon its seventeenth session. 
NunvberS its alumnx number over five hundred. Recent graduating classes 

have numbered from fifty to seventy-seven. The freshman class 
numbers, and for the present is limited to, one hundred and twenty-five. Less 
than one-third of the students are from the immediate vicinity, tlie remainder 
are from all parts of the country. All religious denominations are liberally 
represented.

Lack of Confidence 



The onl\' reason there is any limit to the sales of the remedy 
which we manufacture, is that people have been humbugged so 
often that they are suspicious of any and every advertised prepara- 
tion. 

We are prepared to back up our every statement, as we know 
that every person who suffers with Indigestion, Biliousness, Dyspep- 
sia, Constipation, Sick Headache, Flatulency, Dizziness and Heart- 
burn, will derive satisfactory results from the use of Dr. Caldwell's 
Syrup Pepsin. 

We ask you to read the letters from ministers which we publish 
below. If you are not satisfied, then write us for a FREE SAMPLE 
before buying the large size from your druggist. That is fair, is n' t it ? 



ILLINOIS 

Rev. Joseph G. Wright, Editor of the Dio- 
cese OF Spri.ngfielu, Greenville, 111., writes: 
I am pleased to acknowledge the merit of your 
medicine. Dr. Caldwell's Syrup Pepsin, and 
thank you for placing such an efficacious reme- 
dy for stomach and bowel troubles on the mar- 
ket. I always keep your medicine in the house, 
and use no other kind. For persons of sedentary 
habits a laxative and stomach tonic is a necessity, 
and Syrup Pepsin meets my requirements in 
this line better than any medicine I ever used, 
keeping me in splendid health. 

INDIANA 

Rev. R. A. Kemp, of Charlestown, Ind., Sec- 
retary Indiana Conference of the Methodist 
Episcopal Church, writes under date of Septem- 
ber 11, 1899: For years 1 have been a victim of 
constipation, and have tried a great many reme- 
dies, but have never found anything equal to 
your Syrup Pepsin. I have suffered from indi- 
gestion which caused irregular heart action. A 
physician who treated me for some time, told 
me the irregular pulsation could not be relieved 
as it had become chronic, but after taking near- 
ly two bottles of your medicine my heart has 
become regular in action. 1 do not hesitate to 
recommend it. 

IOWA 

H. C. Littleton, pastor Church of Christ, 
Harlan, Iowa, writes: I have used Dr. Cald- 
well's Syrup Pepsin for indigestion and heart- 
burn, and am very much pleased with its re- 
sults. I cheerfully recommend it as a pleasant, 
safe and reliable remedy for dyspepsia. It is 
the best medicine to sweeten a sour stomach I 
have ever tried. 



G£,ORGIA 

Rev. J. C. Newman, late pastor Milledgeville 
Church, Atlanta, Ga., writes : I suffered for 
years with chronic dyspepsia, a generally de- 
ranged stomach and torpid liver. This has 
caused me many a painful hour, and I feel it 
but honest and just to you to acknowledge the 
merits of your Syrup Pepsin, as eight bottles 
cured me, and made a complete change in me. 
I never have the least trouble any more. I eat 
heartily, my sleep is restful, and I wake in the 
morning refreshed and ready for a day's work, 
in the best of spirits. I am e.\tremely glad to 
have found so valuable a remedy in my trouble. 



KENTUCKY 

237 East High Street, j 

Lexington, Ky., Jan. 21, 1901. ] 
PEPSIN SYRUP CO., Monticello, 111.: 

De.\r Sirs: It affords me great pleasure to 
give an unfeigned and unconstrained testimo- 
nial to the value and virtue of Dr. Caldwell's 
Syrup Pepsin. The use of one bottle gave me 
ready and radical relief from a torpid liver, 
removed a headache, regulated my bowels, and 
enabled me to continue my evangelical work 
without discomfiture or intermission. Your 
medicine will surely prove a great blessing to 
any .ind all who are in neqd of a good, true 
friend of a "sound mind in a sound body." 

Thanking you for the help and health I have 
enjoyed at your hands, I am 

Your grateful servant.

ILLINOIS WOMAN'S COLLEGE 

JACKSONVILLE, ILLINOIS 

This is the only College of our Church exclusively for women in all the 
country from Pennsylvania to California. For thoroughness of work in all 
departments — literary, music, elocution and art — it is not surpassed by any 
other school for women, and it is especially to be commended for its helpful 
influences on character and life, and for its healthy religious atmosphere. 

It is not one of the most expensive schools, but it is one of the best. It 
gives its students health, vigor, inspiration, Christian Womanliness. 

READ WHAT THOSE SAY WHO KNOW : 

Dr. Berry, in "Epworth Herald : " "No wonder the attendance at the Illinois Woman's 
College increases rapidly from year to year. It is a charming Christian home." 

Conference Visitors: "We believe there is not a school for women in the United 
States with a healthier moral tone, and where our girls can be sent with more security for 
their training in all that is good, than there." 

The College has the regular literary courses, and also offers the Finest 
Advantages in Music, Art and Elocution. 

The attendance is limited. For several years every place has been en- 
gaged before the opening in September. For information write to
