lumbus Mission. Shelby District, was elected to deacon's 
orders. 

L. L. Nash, from the committee to whom were referred 
the papers in reference to Paine Institute, submitted the 
following- report, which was read : 

REPORT OF COMMITTEE FOR PAINE INSTITUTE. 

The committee to whom were referred certain papers in relation to the Paine 
InstitiUe, located in the city of Augusta, Georgia, and designed for the educa- 
tion of colored ministers and teachers, for " The Colored Methodist Episcopal 
Church, of America," have had the same under consideration, and beg leave 
to submit the following report: 

This is a connectional institute, organized by the authority of the General 
Conference of the M. E. Church, South, and has been in operation for nearly 
two years. The first year there were enrolled 125 pupils, and the second year 
there have been enrolled 146 pupils. The Board of Trustees having no house 
of their own in which to invite their pupils, and no means with which to build 
or buy suitable houses for the purpose, were compelled to open their school in a 
hired house, which was far from having such capacity and conveniences as were 
necessary for conducting a school of that grade, and yet their success has really 
been phenominal, and should be cause for profound gratitude to Almighty God. 
The object commends itself to every christian man — and especially to every 
Southern Methodist, and we are glad of the opportunity of placing upon re- 
cord our words of sincere sympathy for the Paine Institute, whose object is the 
furnishing of the C. M. E. Church of America with an educated ministry and 
teachers, and through them disseminate the spirit of general education among 
our colored people. 

We are glad to welcome to our Conference, Rev. W. C. Dunlap, "Commis- 
sioner of Education," acting under authority from the General Conference, and 
by appointment of Bishop McTyeire, to collect funds for purchasing suitable 
property for the school, and we hereby request Bishop Keener, President of 
our Conference, to allow Bro. Dunlap to present the claims of the institution 
at such time as may suit his convenience. 

Respectfully submitted, 

L. L. Na.sh, 
D. R. Bruton, 
T. J. Stephens, 

Committee. 

Rev. W. C. Dunlap addressed the Conference as to the- 
objects and interests of that institution. A collection was- 
taken on this account, amounting to $519.00.

Resolved, That the following report be made to Conference: 
Your committee appointed to propose a plan for a division of the North Caro- 
lina Conference, have, after a full and fair discussion and consideration of vari- 
ous propositions, failed to agree upon any plan. We, therefore, deem it inex- 
pedient to memorialize the General Conference, and ask to be discharged from 
the further consideration of the subject. 

L. S. BuRKHEAD, Chairman. 
C. G. Montgomery, Secretaty. 

L. S. BURKHEAD, representing a minority of the commit- 
tee, presented, also, the following report, which was read : 

MINORITY REPORT— division OF CONFERENCE. 

Whereas, the majority of the committee have failed to propose any plan 
for the division of the North Carolina Conference; and whereas, we, the under- 



JOURNAL OF PROCEEDINOS. 19 

signed, honestly believe tViat the Conference should he divided, beg leave to 
submit the following minority report: 

It will be remembered that, at the session of our Conference held in the city 
of Raleigh in December, 1882, a committee, consisting of Revs. C. M. Pepper, 
N. H. D. Wilson, H. T. Hudson, J. T. Bagwell and L. S. Burkhead, clerical; 
and E. J. Lilly, T. M. Jones, E. A. Thome, R. R. Crawford and J. B< Con- 
nelly, laymen, was appointed to " consider and report upon the subject of the 
division of the North Carolina Conference." This committee did make a re- 
port which was adopted by the Conference on December 12th, 1882. The fol- 
lowing are the resolutions: 

Resolved i, That we deem it wise and proper to look forward to an arrange- 
ment for the division of our Conference at the next General Conference. 

Resolved 2, That, in our judgment, it will be proper for the Annual Confer- 
ence of 1884 to appoint a committee consisting of one minister and one layman 
from each presiding elder's district, who shall propose a plan for the division of 
this Conference to be submitted to the Annual Conference of 1885, so that such 
plan may, wlien acted upon, be presented to the General Conference of 1886. 

As the majority of the committee appointed under the last resolution, refuse 
to present any plan for division, we, a minority of said committee, believe that 
the time has come when the glory of God and the interests of our Church 
demand a division of the Conference. And we herewith submit some reasons 
for this belief. 

1st. The Conference has grown too large and burdensome to be easily enter- 
tained at our annual sessions, except in a few of our largest towns and cities, 
while many of our smaller towns, both in the east and west, anxious to extend 
to us their hospitality, are deprived of the privilege. 

2nd. The teiritory of our Conference stretches over a country about four 
hundred miles in length, embracing two totally dissimilar climates which en- 
danger the health of the preachers and their families who do not remain long 
enough in either to become acclimated, and furthermore, this length of travel 
forces upon them bills of heavy expenses, which diminish the small pittance 
left them after their necessary expenses are paid at home. 

3rd. The division of large churches and circuits tends to more rapid develop- 
ment, and we believe that this is equally true of large Conferences. 

4th. There are in this Conference 74,888 church members, and 182 pastoral 
charges. An equal division would give each Conference 37,444 church mem- 
bers, and 91 pastoral charges. This would leave the number to be entertained 
at the annual sessions of each of the two Conferences about 175 persons, which 
would sufficiently tax the hospitality of our towns and cities. 

5th. Our Conference is so large that the routine business consumes nearly all 
the time of our annual sessions, and there is little opportunity to specially em- 
phasize the great interests of the church by conferring together, and thus crea- 
ting the proper enthusiasm and harmony in behalf of education, missions, 
church literature and the other gr^eat connectional interests of our Church. 

6th. We believe the spread of the gospel will be promoted by this measure, 



20 NORTH CAROLINA ANNUAL CONFERENCE. 

■and this is the great paramount interest of the Church. Grow and divide is 
the great law of Methodism. 

Finally. Division is a foregone conclusion — a mere question of time, and we 
honestly believe that now is the auspicious time to divide our Conference. We 
have no Conference property but Trinity College (Davenport having been leased 
for a term of years,) and this can, and shotild be made the joint property of the 
two Conferences, and its annual commencements the rallying point for brotherly 
greetings and the unitication of our glorious Methodism in North Carolina. It 
is, therefore, 

Resolved, That we recommend the North Carolina Conference to memorialize 
the General Conference of the M. E. Church, South, which is to meet in Rich- 
mond, Va., in the month of May, 1886, to divide the North Carolina Confer- 
ence according to the following plan, to-wil: 

1. To transfer to the North Carolina Conference all the territory of North 
Carolina now embraced in the Virginia and Holslon Cenferences, and then 
divide the State equitably into an Eastern and Western North Carolina Con- 
ference. 

2. Should the General Conference refuse to transfer the Holston territory, 
then we ask the transfer of that pa't of our Stale now embraced in the Vir- 
ginia Conference, and divide equitably into an Eastern and Western North 
Carolina Conference. 

3. If either the Virginia or Holston territory can be obtained, then to divide 
equitably into an Eastern and Western North Carolina Conference. 

4. But if neither of the above territories can be obtained, then we request 
the General Conference to divide our present Conference equitably into an 
Eastern and Western North Carolina Conference.

REPORT. 

The committee on the appeal case of Rev. A. N. Belts, Local Elder from 
Cary Circuit, Raleigh District, beg to submit that they find that the trial be- 
fore the Quarterly Conference was irregular, in that it presents the general 
charge of unacceptability, but furnishes no specification or specifications with 
the proof to sustain them. 

While the charge is not sustained, it does appear that there is some ground of 
complaint, and that the nature of the case is such as to demand investigation. 

We, therefore, remand the case for a new trial.

To the Bishops and Members of the General Conference of the Methodist

Dear Fathers and Brethren : 

We, the members of the North Carolina Conference, in Conference assem- 
bled in the city of Charlotte, North Carolina, beg leave to call the attention of 
the next General Conference to assemble in the city of Richmond in May next, 
to the great and increasing evils of the laws on Divorce in this land, as 
subversive of society, and injurious to the cause of Christ; and believing, that 
some expression, if not a law, should be pronounced by your bodj against 
this fearful evil, do hereby pray that this subject may receive your prayerful 
consideration, and action, forbidding the ministers of our church to sol- 
emnize the rites of matrimony between divorced persons except where one of 
the parties has been divorced for the one scriptural cause, and your memorialists 
will ever pray. , Robert O. Burton,

John W. Lewis, Robert P. Bibb, Henry Gray. John W. Floyd, Charles 
H. Phillips, John N. Andrews, Baxter C. Phillips, Lemuel H. Gibbons 
and William I. Hull. 

T. S. Campbell read the following memoir of JOHN 
W. Lewis : 

MEMOIR OF JOHN W. LEWIS. 

Rev. John W. Lewis was brought up in his native county of Randolph, 
N. C. His family was among the best people of the county. He received 
such training in schools and business habits as fitted him for life's responsi- 
bilities and exerted upon his whole life and char, cter a salutary influence. 
We know not the date of his conversion and connection with the Church. 
But he entered on probation, the Virginia Conference in 1833 when about 
25 years of age. He continued in the regular work fifty-two and a half 
years. The first year he was assigned as helper to Iredell circuit, second to 
Stokes circuit as helper; in 1S35 in charge of Straits, 1836 Duplin, 1837 
Iredell, 1S38 and 1839 Rowan. From that time till his death he traveled 
circuits, often at great inconvenience and sacrifice of domestic privileges. 
His last charge was Abbott's Creek Mission. 

He was consecrated, zealous and devoted to his work. He never com- 
plained of any appointment and always went to his work promptly and 
cheerfully. He discharged his duty according to his ability usually with 
much success. When in his prime, he was one of the most successful re- 
vivalists. Hundreds of persons in sections where he labored, were led to 
Christ by him, and few will receive a crown fuller of stars than his. He at- 
tended to all the interests of the Church. It is believed that he was instru- 
mental in building more churches than any other member of the Conference. 
These stand as monuments to his zeal, good management and love of souls. 
" He did hard work and did it well. He had a fine mind well stored with 
good things. His common sense and sound judgment were conspicuous 
trails. He was brother-in-law of the late Rev. James Reid and maternal 



JOURNAL OF PKOCKEDINGS. 4I 



uncle of Rev. Dr. N. F. Reid. He was their loved and liusted friend. 
^Vhen Dr. Reid died, he wrote his biography and did it well. 

In the community in which he lived for years every body had the utmost 
confidence in him and loved him devotedly, lie had a bright, cheerful and 
deep piety that charmed and attracted both old and young. His was a full 
rounded character and one ripe for Heaven. He died at home in Thomas- 
ville, of paralysis, May 23, 18S5. He has gone from labor to rest. 

R. T. N. Stei'HENSOX read the following meiTioir of 
Robert P. Bibb: 

MEMOIR OF ROBERT P. BIBB. 

Rev. Robert P. Bibb was born and brought up in Nelson county, Virginia. 
His family was highly respected and pious. 

His educational advantages were such as to develop and train his mind 
and cultivate his taste. He professed faith in Christ in early life, and his 
life and piety were consistent. Having united with the Methodist Church, 
he soon gave evidence that he was chosen of God for usefulness in the 
Church. He entered on trial in the Virginia Conference in 1S36, and was 
sent as helper on Bedford circuit. The next year he was stationed in the 
town of Washington. Then on Tarboro circuit, next on Orange. He con- 
tinued to labor with acceptability and usefulness on many fields of labor, 
until he became so enfeebled, that, in 1875, he asked to be placed in a super- 
annuated relation. 

He returned to his home at Trinit) College, but did not lose his love of 
the gospel, but labored with the brethren on charges near him with his usual 
zeal and with a good degree of success. 

He preached his last sermon at Prospect Church, Randolph circuit, July, 
1884. From that time he gradually gave way until the 29th of June, 1885, 
he fell asleep in Jesus. On approaching the river he spoke as if it would 
afford hini*l)leasure to pass over and be with the brethren who had gone be- 
fore. Robert P. Bibb was a good preacher. He was conversant with many 
poetical works, and especially with Methodist Hymnology. His preaching 
was magnetic. People were delighted to hear him. 

J. R. Griffith read the following memoir of HenRY 
Gray : 

memoir of HENRY GRAY. 

Rev. Henry Gray was born in ^ViUi.nmston, Martin county, N.C., March 
23d, 1800, and died at his home near Orange Factory, Durham Co., N. C, 
Saturday, March i8th, 1885, and his remains now rest in the cemetery at

NORTH CAROLINA ANNUAL CONFERENCE. 



Mt. Bethel church, Durham circuit. Bro. Gray was converted at his home 
August 5th, 1832, and soon after connected himself with the Church, and was 
licensed to preach by Rev. Joseph Carson. He was a successful local 
preacher for si.x years. In'1838 he joined the North Carolina Conference, 
and was sent to the Neuse circuit, where he had over two hundred converts, 
and this was the beginning of Methodism in that section of Craven county. 
In 1841 and 1842 Bro. Gray traveled Sampson circuit, and during the two 
years reported one thousand conversions. In 1845 and 1846 he was on 
Trent circuit from which he reported gracious times, over one thousand con- 
verts. The next five or si.x years he did only occasional work, being in poor 
heahh. In 1S50 he was sent to Columbia circuit and reporled over two 
hundred conversions. In 1851 and 1852 he traveled Mattamuskeet circuit 
from which he reported eight hundred conversions. In 1853 and 1854 he 
was sent to Roanoke circuit. In 1855 he was stationed at the Mission 
church, Raleigh, N. C, now Person street, from which he reports one hun- 
dred converts. In 1856 he was sent to Granville circuit. In 1857 and 1S58 
he was on Hillsboro and Uwharrie circuits, from which he reported two 
hundred converts. In 1859 his health failed so completely that he took a 
superannuated relation and remained in that relation until his death. In 
looking over Bro. Gray's work, we find that his success in winning souls to 
Christ was truly wonderful. During twenty years of active work he reports 
nearly five thousand conversions. A great man once said he is the greatest 
preacher, who brings most souls to Christ, and judging Father Gray by this 
standard we pronounce him a much grander man than the world has given 
him credit for. The greatness of his work will be seen, when the souls con- 
verted through his agency begin to shine as stars in his crown. They that 
be wise shall shine as the brightness of the firmament, and they that turn 
many to righteousness as the stars forever and ever. Father Gray did a 
vast deal of good work after his superannuation, but it will take too much 
space to follow him through all of his devious paths of preaching, exhorting, 
singing, prayin:j in season and out, until his strength was literally worn out 
in the service of the Lord. Thus full of years, abundant in labors, and 
mighty in faith this veteran of the cross has passed triumphantly to his re- 
ward. Sweet in spirit and gentle in manners he scattered benedictions all 
along the pathway of life and leaves to the world the rich legacy of a con- 
sistent and shinintr christian life.

i u.eful and successful. While not a fluent speaker he was sound and clear 
in his exposition and presentation of the Truth and edifying in preaching the

lie was in the itinerant field until 1885, when he was discharged from duly 
liy the Captain of the Great Militant Host. 

I-"or two or three years he had been growing more feeble. But he per- 
sisted in doing his work against the earnest entreaties C)f his family and 
friends, " until the zeal of God's house had eaten him up." Though worn 
down with disease and labors he entered upon this, his last field, with full 
determination to make full proof of his ministry. It very soon became a]5- 
parent to all but himself that he was stooping to the shore where departure 
is made for the " rest that remains for the people of God." Up to the second 
quarterly meeting lie was at, or in reach of, every appointment. When 
the day came weather loo inclement for the congregations to assemble 
only kept him from the house of God. April the isi he was induced to 
abandon all idea of work until his health should improve. • But O how he 
clung to his work and his people ! He had them indeed in his heart. 

Leisurely and in feebleness extreme he made his way home never to leave 
it again until devout men carried him to his burial. 

Disease was doing its work rapidly, and May 19th his spirit left the cum- 
bering clay. He was hopeful to the last that he might recover, but as 
might have been expected, he was tranquil, ready, and satisfied to live or 
die. That God whom he had served so faithfully was with him and among 
his last words he said: " If I die, I'm going to heaven." 

His piety was undoubted, his sympathies being easily aroused, his services 
were much sought by those who were afflicted. His sermons and prayers were 
full of comfort and encouragement to those who sighed for the " touch of 
vanished hand or the sound of a voice that was still." He was a good 
preacher, a man that wore well, and useful in every field that he ever served. 
He regarded the four years spent on the Patrick and Henry circuits as his 
most successful years. 

Hi> preaching looked to the foundations of doctrine and experience tend- 
ing to ihe conversion of sinners and the establishment of the people of God. 
A few days before his death he called his wife and said every congregation 
he ever served was vividly pictured before his mind and impressed upon his 
heart. Bui he rests from his labors and his works do follow him. 

Jamls H. Southgate read the following memoir of 
Baxter C. ?hillip.s: 

memoir of baxter clegg phillips. 

Rev. Baxter Clegg Phillips was born near Fair Haven, Moore county, 
N. C, on the 29th day of July, 1841, and died in I^urham, N. C, March 
i6th, 1S85. 

He professed failh in Christ at the age of thirteen, united with the Meth- 



odist Episcopal Church. South, and thenceforth, through the scenes of young 
manhood, at home and in liie war, maintained the confidence of his associa- 
tes as an humble devoted follower of the blessed Master. He was licensed 
to preach at Center Church, Moore county, in the fall of 1866, and began 
work the next year as a supply on the Montgomery circuit. 

The North Carolina Conference convened at Wilmington the same year, 
and he was admitted on trial in the traveling connection. During the years 
1868-69. '70 and '71 his labors were confined to the Pee Dee, now the Mt. 
Gilead circuit, and in 1872 he was sent to the Mattamuskeet circuit, but ow- 
ing to feeble health and unfavorable climatic influences he retained this ap- 
pointment one year only, the place of his labors being changed to Jonesboro 
circuit, where he worked faithfully for four years. 1873-76 inclusive. 

During i877-'78 and '79 ho served the people of Laurinburg circuit; leav- 
ing it for Randleman's station in 1S80. His work at this appointment in 
i88o-'8i-'82 and '83 was of the highest order and brought into notice char- 
acteiistics which stamped him a strong, growing influential man of God. 
He was pastor of Person Street Church, Raleigh, during 18S4, and at the 
Wilmington Conference of that year he was appointed to Trinity Church, 
Durham, where, after a few months of indefatigable, labor, he died, as only 
the true and faithful servant of God can die. 

It was here that all the excellencies of mind and heart were called into 
lively exercise. His preaching was forceful, impressive, perspicuous and at 
times truly eloquent. "Repentance towards God and faith in our Lord 
Jesus Christ" seemed to be the end and aim of each discourse. He gave 
forth the marrow and fatness of the gospel from a mind well stored with 
the truth as it is in Jesus, and a heart that felt the burden of souls. He 
was endowed with tjiat true oratorical power which compelled his hearers to 
listen attentively to his words, as he, with great liberty of speech and con- 
vincing argument, would declare the truth. As a pastor he was pre-eminent, 
as an organizer he was a grand success. No labor seemed too arduous, no 
obstacle too hard to be overcome, and like a skillful general he lead his peo- 
ple to certain victory. 

Kind, generous and true, with an uncomprising love of right, he was an 
agreeable companion and a faithful friend. With his powerful intellect and 
eloquent tongue he fearlessly opposed with all the fire of his soul, whatever 
he considered wrong. 

His work is done. The roadway of life ended abruptly in the " valley of 
the shadow," but his record was fairly made, his work fully rounded and 
from beyond the clouded shadow shine the rays of his life's good deeds to 
point out his pathway. Sad hearts and sorrowing sympathies followed him 
to his grave and hnger now with a cherishing love, near those he has left 
behind.

NORTH CAROLINA ANNUAL CONFERENCE. 



Joseph D. Arnold read the following memoir of 
Lemuel H. Gibbons: 



MEMOIR OF LEMUEL H. GIBBONS. 

Rev. Lemuel H. Gibbons was born near LaGrange, Lenoir county, N. C, 
August 26th, 1S44. 

He was the son of a Methodist preacher, Rev. H. H. Gibbons, of the 
North Carolina Conference. 

He was but six years of age when his father joined tlie ministry, and 
there were thus thrown around him the influences of a Church at whose altars, 
his own father ministered. 

But Gibbons gave himself to God when but nine years of age, and re- 
mained a faithful member to ihe day of his death. 

He joined the Church under the ministry of Rev. Paul J. Carraway. 
When the dark cloud of war gathered over our country, and a call was 
made upon her sons to come to her defence, Bro. Gibbons, at the age of 
eighteen, entered the Confederate service and remained until the close of 
the war. 

In iS6g he was licensed to preach and in 1870 joined the Conference, and 
responded cheerfully to every call made upon him to the very close of life. 
He traveled successively the Carthage, Yanceyville, Oxford and Haw 
River circuits. Follow him on this round of appointments, and you will 
find his warm, life-long friends among the people he has served. He was 
loved and respected where he was best known. He thus gave his life to 
his Master, following the Godly example of his father. 

When a son follows his father into the ministry, we have an example 
that may justly challenge the confidence and admiration of men. It is an 
unmistakable evidence of decided christian training. 

Bro. Gibbons was a man of solid, sterling qualities. Quiet in his de- 
meanor, firm in his purposes, faithful in his engagements. The summons 
came to the strong man when he was but fairly upon the arena of life. He 
had not passed into the " sear and yellow leaf" but, he fell in the front 
rank of effective men, in the full vigor of manhood, wifh a wife and happy 
family around him. 

His work was done and the time of his departure at hand. 
He died on the nth day of June, 18S5. The brethren aniong whom he 
willingly labored for fourteen years, this day write in a trilnite of confidence 
and affection and invoke the blessings of our Common Father upon the 
bereaved and stricken in heart. 

What greater comfort can sustain in the hour of death than a clear, well- 
defined consciousness that we have tried to know and to do the willof God 
concernin<j us. A consciousness that we have tried to follow the leading of

tlie Good Spirit with an eye single to the glory of God and the welfare of 
men. In such a case we have clearly a Divine right to comfort through our 
Lord Jesus Christ, and there is that within us that speaks with the au'.hor- 
ity of inspiration and says, "Well done, good and faithful servant." 

Hugh F. Wiley read the following- memoir of WIL- 
LIAM I. Hull: 



MEMOIR OF WILLIAM I. HULL. 

Rev. William Ireneus Hull was born in Cabarrus county, N. C, October 
yih, 1854, and died at King's Mountain, N. C, February 2d, 1885, aged 
30 years, 3 months and 21 days. He was the son of Rev. Joel Hull, a min- 
ister of the Lutheran Church. Bro. Hull was converted when about nine 
years old, and joined the Methodist Episcopal Chuich, South, at Palm Tree, 
Soulh Fork circuit, under the ministry of Rev. John J. Prather. He was 
educated at Rutherford College. After he left college he went to Union 
county, N. C, where he was engaged in teaching for several years. On the 
I3lh day of June, 1875, he was happily married to Miss Mary Ella Belk, 
daughter of Mr. D. P. Belk, of Union county. In 1877 he was licensed to 
preach at the fourth Quarterly Conference of Pleasint Grove circuit. Dr. 
Wm. H. Bobbitt presiding. He served the North Charlotte circuit as a 
supply, part of the year 1S79, and at the Conference held in Wilson, Decem- 
ber 1879, he was received on trial, and appointed by Bishop Wightman to 
the Topsail circuit. He served this charge three years, and was very accep- 
table and popular. At the Conference held at Durham, December, r88r, he 
was received into full connection, and ordained deacon by Bishop Pierce. 
In 1883 he traveled the Duplin circuit, and at the Conference held at States- 
ville, 1883, he was ordained elder by Bishop Keener, and appointed to Fifth 
Street Church, Wilmington, N. C. He entered upon the duties of this 
pastoral charge in feeble health, but by his devotion and consistent piety he 
soon won his way to the hearts of this people. He was much loved, and 
esteemed among them and bid fair to be eminently useful. But his course 
of usefulness was rapidly drawing to a close. In the early part of the year 
his health failed entirely, and on the third Sunday in April, 1S84, he 
pleached his las} sermon. He continued, however, in charge of the church 
until the close of the Conference year, other ministers supplying his lack of 
service. His church paid his salary in full for the entire year, and in many 
other ways manifested their appreciation and sympathy, for their much be- 
loved, but afflicted pastor. At the Conference held in Wilmington, Decem- 
ber, 1884, Bro. Hull was placed in the superannuated relation. Soon after 
Conference he moved to King's Mountain for medical treatment. But such 
was the nature of his disease, that neither change of climate nor medical 



48 NORTH CAROLINA ANNUAL CONFERENCK 



skill could stay its progress. He gradually and constantly grew worse. But 
he had thoroughly consecrated himself to God, and was not alarmed at the 
approach of death. Though nearing the Dark Valley, his faith pierced the 
vista and rested upon the celestial glory of the Bright Beyond. He hitjhly 
appreciated any kindness done for him during his aflliction; often referred 
to his kind friends in Wilmington. He spoke affectionately and tenderly of 
their many kindnesses. A few weeks before his death, in referring to God's 
goodness to him during his illness, he said : " I have had a good time dur- 
ing my illness; I have really enjoyed it." Rev. IL F. Wiley says: "A few 
days before his death when taking leave of him, he requested me to return 
again the same evening. When I had come, and sealed myself by him, he 
said, I am going to die, and I wanted to send love to our brethren of the 
Conference, and the Church, especially the church in Wilmington, and I 
want you to be the messenger of it." We then talked about the beautiful 
home of the good in Heaven. With a radiant smile, he said, " It is delightful 
to think of it." In this happy frame of mind, at 7 o'clock, February 2d, 1885, 
his gentle spirit passed peacefully away from earth, to his reward in Heaven. 
Bro. Hull' was modest and unobstnisive, but amiable and affectionate. 
He had a clear intellect, sound judgment, and above all a strong faith. His 
life was gentle; his death was peaceful. In his death the Church has lo>.t a 
faithful minister, "but our loss is his gain." "Thanks be unto God which 
giveth us the victory, through our Lord Jesus Christ." 

William L. Cuninggi.m, for J. M. Rhodes, read the 
following memoir of John N. Andrews: 

memoir of JOHN N. ANDREWS. 

Rev. John N. Andrews, the son of Dr. S. A. and Mrs. Louisa P. An- 
drews, was born June 21st, 1826, and was married to Miss Sarah P. Craw- 
ford, January 14th, 1847. He professed religion at Holt's Mill, near Prince- 
ton, N. C, in 1849, and joined the Methodist Episcopal Church at Golds- 
boro llie same year, during the "great revival " under the ministry of Rev. 
Ira T. Wyche. He was licensed to preach in 1850, and supplied Snow Hill 
circuit in 1854. He joined the North Carolina Conference at Pittsboro, 
November, 1S54, and was appointed to Smithville circuit. In 1856 and '57 
he traveled the Roanoke circuit. In 1858 he was in charge of the Seamen'^ 
Bethel, Wilmington, N. C. In 1S59 he was agent for Normal College. In 
i860 he was sent to Wnrreii circuit, and returned to the Seamen's Bethel 
1861; 1862-65 he traveled Eveieit>ville circuit, and in 1866 he lo?ated; 
i867-'69 he was again at the Seamen's Bethel; i87a-'73 he was pastor of 
Wayne circuit; 1874 he was sent to Mt. Olive circuit; lS75-'77 to Lenoir 
circuit, and 1878 to Washington station; i879-'8o he traveled Edgecombe 



JOURNAL OV PROCEEDINGS. 49 



circuii, and returned t(i Wasliington station 1881. In 18S2 he was sent to 
Snow Hill circuit; lSS3-'84 to Wayne circuii; 1885 to Roanoke circuit. 

From the above we see that he spent nearly thirty-five years in the minis- 
try, and more than thirty years in the itinerancy, During this lime the good 
he did and the converts he made will not he ]<nown lliis side eternity. He 
was decidedly a revivalist, and when he did succeed he succeeded grandly. 
He was a very warm-hearted, magnetic man, and made friends everywhere, 
and many very strong friends. But no description of him can give to those 
who do not know him any adequate conception of his character, while those 
who did know him knew more of him than can possibly be gleaned from one 
short obituaiy. He was a man of decided native ability, and could, if he 
had followed, as he began, the practice of medicine, have amassed at least a 
competency, and have left his family in comfortable circumstances. But he 
spent his life in the ministry, and died poor, leaving a dependent widow. 

As a preacher he was bold and fearless. To speak the truth or withhold 
was with him never a matter of policy. He preached with fervency, and 
frequently with great power. When at his best in the pulpit, he was one of 
the most effective preachers we ever heard. His style was very unique, and 
was all his own. He studied men, nature and the Bible and from these he 
drew the subject-matter of his sermons. We think his zeal, humility and 
consecration all increased with his years. He came to this work at the be- 
ginning of this year with the revival spirit, and this spirit remained with 
him to the last hour of his earthly existence. Having arranged to supply 
his work during his absence, he left the circuit two or three weeks before his 
death with the intention of visiiing his children before the warm weather 
and the revival season came on. During this lime he rode nearly four hun- 
dred miles, in company with his wife, visiting all his children, the immediate 
members of his family, his father and mother's graves, and othgr places of 
interest to him. Having completed his visit he started back to his work, 
but died before he reached the parsonage. 

He preached on Sunday at New Hope Church, one of his appointments, 
and administered the sacrament. This seivice was spoken of as one of 
much interest. On Monday evening he jireachcd a funeral sermon, and 
buried one of the members of his Church at Tabor. At the grave he read 
and sung a hymn, assisted by his wife, and seemed happy. From the grave 
he went to the residence of Mr. W. W. Butts, expecting to return to Little- 
ton the next day. Just after leaving the grave he said to his wife, "You 
must go to the parsonage, pack up the things, and travel with me on the 
circuit the rest of the year, and help me sing and pray in my meetings." 
After supper he retired in usual health. About 10 o'clock he called his wife, 
saying he was very sick. The family was aroused, and he was assisted to 
the porch, where he desired to go for air. He asked his wife to fan him. 






NORTH CAROLINA ANNUAL CONFKkLNCE. 



\\ liicli she did. He asked for soda water; drank it, standing, fell and died 
almost immediately, without even time to say good-bye or leave for his 
children a parting blessing. Such was ihe end of this servant of God. The 
good he has done will live, and it will be a long, long time before his name 
will be forgotten. 

His remains were taken to Goldsboro, a funeral service was conducted by 
Rev. Dr. Burkhead in the Methodist Episcopal Church, South, on the very 
spot where, thirty-six years ago, in an old academy, he united with the 
Church. The people of Goldsboro most gladly gave him a burial place in 
their own cemetery, by the side of his father and mother, where he awaits 
the resurrection. 

The memorials were separately adopted. 

Junius T. Harris, on behalf of the Board of Missions, 
presented the following as the action of the Board in ref- 
erence to the death of its Treasurer, WlLLIAM C. DOUB: 

The Missionary Board is called upon to chronicle the death of Prof. W. 
C. Doub, who, for several years, had been its honored and faithful trea- 
surer. In his death, the Board lost an industrious, accurate, conscientious 
and punctual treasurer, the Church a devout, intelligent and worthy mem- 
ber, and the state, a cultured, upright and honorable citizen. 

The Board and the whole Conference greatly miss his wisdom and devo- 
tion in the transaction of the business pertaining to our missionary opera- 
tions. His place among us is hard to fill. But, while we deplore the loss 
to the Church below, we rejoice in the confident hope of his higher exalta- 
tion and more honorable service in the Church above. And while we pause 
to drop a tear at the grave of our fallen brother, we are sure that, though 
God bury his workmen, he will carry on his work to a glorious consumma- 
tion. 

John R. Brooks introduced the following resolution, 
which was read and unanimously adopted : 

Whereas. The Rev. Linus Parker, D. D., one of the Bishops of the 
Methodist Episcopal Church, South, and who presided so efficiently and 
satisfactorily at the last session of our Conference, has, by the Great Head 
of the Church, been taken from the labors of earth to the rewards of Hea- 
ven; therefore, 

Resolved. That while we deplore the great loss which our beloved Church 
has sustained in the death of this eminent servant of Christ, we humbly sub-

APPENDIX. 



(Document No. i.) 
REPORT ON BOOKS AND PERIODICALS. 

The committee on Hooks and Periodicals offer llie foUowinij report; 

They have had before them the periodical literature of the Church, and a 
communication from the agent of the Publishing House at Nashville, and they 
have given these interests as careful consideration as was possible under the 
circumstances. 

The committee rejoice at the prosperity and success of the Publishing House, 
and the hio-h order of religious literature published under the auspices of our 
beloved Church. 

This is eminently a scientific age. Many are running to and fro and know- 
ledge is being increased. The Methodist Church believes that the culture of 
the intellect and the heart should be carried forward in equilibrio, and that that 
culture must necessarily be defective which leaves the heart and its best affec- 
tions out of the curriculum. The pew should be enlightened as well as the pul-- 
pit; and, as faith comes by hearing, so does knowledge come by reading. The 
philosophy of religion and the intellectual forces of the age demand that the 
truths and principles of the Gospel strike deeper than the emotions and take 
their place beyond the flux and reflux of evanescent feeling. An intelligent 
understanding of a truth that rejoices the heart by no means lessens its value; 
and he who would hold the ground of his rejoicing firm unto the end must 
lodcre them by prayerful thought, constant reading and reflection, deep in his 
understanding. In this day of cheap books, moral and religious monthlies and 
weeklies, no one has an excuse for ignorance. 

McTyeire's " History of Methodism " ought to be in the hands of every mem- 
ber of the Church. 

The Southern Quarterly Review ought to be read by every preacher and lay- 
man upon whom God has bestowed gifts for being leaders in the great advance 
of an intelligent and forceful Church. The Nashville Christian Advocate, the 
Advocate of Missions, and the IVoman's Missionary' Advocate ought to be 
household words in every family, and furnish regular household religious feasts 
for all, from the father down to the child of eight years. 

And what shall we .say more. For the time would fail to tell of the brain and 
heart food furnished by Marvin and Munsey, by Paine and Garland and Harri- 
son, and a host of others, who have pushed the literature of our own Publishing 
House to the upper circle, where it stands in the front, face to face with the 
best work of the age. 

With regard to the Sunday school periodicals, your committee beg to be in- 
dulged in some well-meant and friendly criticisms. This will be found in the 
following resolution passed by the committee, to-wit: 



64 NORTH CAROLINA ANNUAL CONFERENCE. 

^YhIle_ we are thankful for ihe efficiency of our Sunday school publications, 
we wish to see them more efficient, bringing out more clearly the distinctive 
doctrines of the Methodist Church as found in the sacred text, and emphasizing 
the spiritual application both in the Expository Notes and in the arrangement 
of the questions. With regard to the Abridged Hymn Book the following pie- 
amble and resolutions were also passed, to-wit: 

Whereas, The Book Committee complain that the Abridged Hymn Book, 
ordered by the General Conference, has in many places been ruled out of our 
pulpits, in reply, be it therefore 

Resolved, That it is the conviction of this committee that the publication of 
the Abridged Hymn Book was a mistake, and wherever it has been used, so far 
as we can learn, it has created confusion and failed to give satisfaction to our 
preachers and people. 

The committee most heartily recommend the Methodist Armor and Cate- 
chism, published by Rev. Dr. Hudson, of this Conference, to all our people. 

The committee also express themselves as pleased with the management and 
improvement of the Raleigh Christian Advocate, as the organ of the North 
Carolina Conference, and request the Presiding Bishop to re-appoint Rev. F. 
L. Reid as editor of said paper. 

E. A. Yates, Chairman. 



(Document No. 2.) 
REPORT OF BOARD OF EDUCATION. 

The Board of Education beg leave to report as follows: 

We have had under careful consideration for several days the Educational 
interests of our Church and the reports of colleges and schools of high grade 
owned, and in any other way connected with it. It gives us pleasure to report 
that there is a growing interest throughout the Conference on the great subject 
of Education, and we believe our people, as never before, realize the import- 
ance of, giving their children the best educational advantages possible. Our 
colleges and schools generally are being well patronized, and where they are 
fully equipped and wisely managed, are succeeding, -ve believe, as never be- 
fore. We regnid this as a most hopeful feature of our work, and urge our min- 
isters and laymen everywhere to do what they can to foster and build up good 
schools of all grades and encourage our people to give to their sons and daugh- 
ters the best educational advantages ihey can. 

Your board also recommends the appointment, by the 'Conference, of visiting 
committees to the schools reported, but not owned by the Church, whose duty it 
shall be, by frequent visitations and inspections, to put themselves in posses- 
sion of all the facts in regard to said schools and report the same to this Con- 
ference at each annual session. 



JOURNAL OF PROCEEDINGS. 65 



CENTRAL INSTITUTE FOR YOUNG LADIES 

Is located in Warren county, N. C, twenty-one miles west of Weldon, in the 
town of Littleton, on the Raleigh and Gaston Railroad. The property is owned 
by a joint stock company and controlled by a board of directors, the majority 
of whom are Methodists. 

Resolved, That we heartily commend this .school to the patronage of our peo- 
ple and cordially invite the co-operation of all in building it^up. 

We request the presiding Bishop to appoint Rev. J. M. Rhodes principal of 
Central Institute, and that J. R. Griffith and Dr. T. P. Jerman be elected a 
visiting committee to the same. 

OAK INSTITUTE 

Is located at Mooresville, in Iredell county, twenty-five miles north of Char- 
lotte by railroad. It is well equipped, efficiently managed, and offers superior 
advantages to pupils of both sexes. We commend it to the patronage of the 
people in that section. 

We also request the Bishop to appoint Rev. T. L. Triplett principal of Oak 
Institute, and that the presiding elder of the Statesville District and the 
preacher at Mooresville be elected a visiting committee to the same. 

JONESBORO HIGH SCHOOL 

Is the property of the Fayetteville District Conference, is located in Moore 
county, in the town of Jonesboro on the Cape Fear and Yadkin Valley R. R. 
It is a school of high grade, and has been well managed by an intelligent board 
of trustees. 

It has been well patronized by the surrounding country and has given great 
satisfaction to its patrons. We commend it to the people as every way worthy 
their support. 

We request the presiding Bishop to appoint Rev. W. O. Hightower principal 
of Jonesboro High School. We also request the Bishop to appoint Rev. A. W. 
Mangum, D. D., professor to the University of the State, located at Chapel 
Hill. 

GREENSBORO FEMALE COLLEGE. 

We are much gratified at the unparalleled prosperity of this e.\cellent insti- 
tution. 

The liberality displayed by the company in expenditures for the equipment 
of the College and the improvement of ihe premises, as well as their good judg- 
ment in the selection of a faculty, can but afford the highest satisfaction to the 
friends of female education throughout the State. 

We do not believe that Greensboro Female College ever maintained a higher 
standard of excellence or ever did better work for Methodism in North Carolina 
than it is now doing. We therefore heartily recommend the following: 

Resolved 1st, That in Greensboro Female College the Methodist Church has 
an institution of learning, for the education of young ladies, of which it may

well be proud, and that those who entrust to it, under its present management, 
the education of their daughters, may be assured that they are not only well 
cared for, but enjoy advantages of instruction and culture unsurpassed by any 
school in the whole South. 

Resolved 2d, That Revs. J. A. Cuninggim, A. \V. Mangum and J. B. Con- 
nelly be appointed a visiting committee from this Conference to Greensboro 
Female College. 

TRINITY COLLEGE. 

From reports of the Committee of Management and of the Treasurer of the 
Board of Trustees, and from other sources, the Board of Education gather the 
following facts add figures in reference to Trinity College: 

1. Debt. — The total undisputed debt of the College is $6,378.31. Of this 
amount $2,752.00 is due the Endowment Fund of Trinity College; $1,063.47, 
the Wachovia Bank; $1 027.43, Dr. R. W. Thomas; $669.41, Robert Gray; 
and $928.00, W. S. Bradshaw. The interest on the above claims is all the 
above parties desire now. There is an unadjusted claim of $735.52 to the 
Trinity Building and Loan Association. 

2. Endowment. — By a series of resolutions passed at the session of the 
North Carolina Conference in 1884, it was resolved to raise $100,000 for an 
Endowment Fund for Trinity College; that an effort would be made to raise at 
least $20,000 annually; that Presiding Elders should hold educational meetings 
at suitable points, and also present the subject of endowment and patronage of 
the College to all the Quarterly Conferences; that pastors should co-operate 
with Presiding Elders in the work of securing the Endowment Fund, and in 
increasing the patronage of the College; and that cash and notes raised for the 
Endowment Fund be reported to the Conference Board of Education, and be 
paid over to the Treasurer of the Board of Trustees. Your Board of Educa- 
tion have no information that any educational meetings have been held by Pre- 
siding Elders, or that any efforts have been made by Presiding Elders or Pas- 
tors to secure endowment, and no cash nor notes raised for such purpose have 
been reported to the Board of Education. The Treasurer of the Board of 
Trustees reports that he has received for endowment $50.00 from J. M. Wat- 
son, $».oo from J. M. McMichael, and $2,700.00 from the estate of Dr. C. G. 
Siddell. He also reports that about $800 more will be realized from the same 
source. According to the last will and testament of the donor, the Siddell 
legacy is to be invested in United States bonds or secured by mortgage on real 
estate, and the interest thereof to be used as a loan fund to assist needy young 
men, and that those so assisted execute a verbal promise to reimburse the fund 
for the outlay. About one thousand dollars will soon be realized from the sale 
of a tract of land in Iredell county, donated by Mrs. Sarah Steele to the use of 
the North Carolina Conference of the Methodist Episcopal Church, South, and 
which, by the action of the last session of the Conference, was to be added to the 
endowment fund of Trinity College; and six hundred dollars are expected to be 
obtained in the near future from the estate of Mrs. Ann E. Earnhardt, of 
Rowan county, and which, according to the will of the testator, is to be applied 



JOURNAL OF PROCEEDINGS. 67 

like the fund from the Siddell estate. A proper person should b& appointed as 
Trustee of these funds to see that the wish of the grantors is respected, and the 
funds securely invested. As the Treasurer of the Board of Trustees has already 
been authorized by the Conference to receive, hold, and invest all funds raised 
for endowment by the Presiding Elders and Pastors, your Board think he is 
the proper person to have, hold and invest the funds received from all other 
sources whatever. 

As by the action of the Board of Trustees at its meeting twelve months ago, 
and sanctioned by the North Carolina Conference at its last session, the Trea- 
surer of the Board of Trustees was authorized to apply any endowment funds 
coming into his hands to pay off any pressing debts of the College, and to take 
a niongage on the real estate of the College to secure the same, your Board of 
Education are of opinion that the President of the Board of Trustees should be 
authorized to execute such mortgage whenever such application shall be made. 
3. First Year of Management. — According to a plan for the immediate relief 
of Trinity College agreed upon at the last session of the North Carolina Confer- 
ence, the management of the College was placed for two years in a committee 
of three laymen. This committee have now had charge for a year, and they 
report a faculty of s#ven professors, a good preparatory and business depart- 
• ment added to the four college classes, one hundred and forty-eight students 
enrolled during the year, which is a large increase over the patronage of the 
I)receding year. Nineteen of these students being sons of preachers, and one the 
son of a professor, have received their tuition free. Twenty-three being unable 
to pay all as they go, have received tuition "on time," and ten of them expect 
to be ministers of the gospel; so that at least seven hundred dollars of tuition 
have been given to preacher's sons, and about eight hundred dollars have been 
given to students " on time." 

The aggregate of salaries of professors agreed to be paid was sixty-tive hun- 
dred and fifty dollars, one thousand dollars were, according to the plan above 
mentioned, to be invested in much needed apparatus, furniture, &c., for the 
use of the college. The whole amount necessary, then, to meet the current 
expenses of the year was seventy-five hundred and fifty dollars. To make up 
this amount the committee have paid three thousand dollars, tuition has paid 
seventeen hundred and forty dollars, and the Conference by collection has paid 
as follows, by Districts:

making a total of $1,300.48 paid by the Conference, and a grand total of 
$6,040.48 received from all sources up to date, and leaving a deficiency of 
$1,509.52 for expenses of the current year. There is still due for tuition for 
the year $1,068.00, most, if not all, of which will be paid, but there will still be 
a deficiency of $431.52, which is unprovided for. 

The Committee of Management have fulfilled their part of the contract for 
the first year, and they hoped that the Conference would raise its promised 
$2,500, so that there would be a surplus to carry over to tTie next year to make 
up for the $1,000 less which the committee are to pay the second year, and thus* 
continue the present organization of the faculty which is working so efficiently; 
but with a great deficiency for this the first year, the situation is not so encour- 
aging. Your Board are of the opinion that the Conference was in honor and 
gratitude bound to raise the whole of the $2,500 promised, but how to remedy 
the breech in the working of the plan caused by this great deficiency, your 
Board are at a loss to determine, unless as suggested in a resolution hereafter 
prssented. 

But your Board must urge that, as the Committee of Management propose to 
go forward and finish their two years' management, doing the best they can 
under the circumstances, that those who are, by the plan, charged with the col- 
lection of this fund, do exert themselves to raise their full assessment and, if 
possible, do as two of the Presiding Elders have done this year, exceed their 
assessment by a handsome sum. 

Your Board would further urge that the plan of endowment as agreed upon 
last year, be pressed with prudent zeal. It is a vain hope which some seem to 
entertain that the present Committee of Management will eventually propose 
to purchase Trinity College, and run it as a college for the Methodists of North 
Carolina. A male college cannot be run successfully on the receipts 0/ tuition. 
Aid from some other source must be obtained. With a college property, worth 
$30,000, situated in a heilthy section at a central point, and easy of access to 
all cur people, and with a nucleus of about five thousand dollars endowment 
fund, we ought to go forward adding to that fund by littles and by larger con- 
tributions until the one hundred thousand dollars are secured, and thus greatly 
enhance the usefulness of this importanc institution. 

In view of the above facts the Educational Board recommend to the Confer- 
ence the following resolutions: 



JOURNAL OF PROCEEDINGS. 69 

1st. That we most gratefully appreciate the manly and christian liberality of 
Bros. J. W. Al.spaugli, J. S. Carr an4 James A. Gray, in so nobly coming to 
the help of our College in the day of its need. 

2d. That the Conference sincerely deplores its failure to raise the whole 
amount of money pledged for the first year and requests that the deficiency in 
said amount be, if possible, collected before tlie commencement in June next. 

3d. That we renew our obligation to raise the twenty-five hundred dollars 
for the ensuing year. 

4lh. That Rev. J. F. Heitman be appointed by the Presiding Bishop a jjrof- 
essor at Trinity College. 

5th. That J. 8. Carr, Treasurer of the Board of Trustees, and his successor in 
otfice, be appointed Trustee of the endowment fund received from the estates 
of Dr. C. G. Siddell, Mrs, Sarah Steele and Mrs. Ann E. Earnhardt, and from 
all other sources whatever, to have hold and invest according to the wishes of 
donors, under the direction of the Board of Trustees. 

6th. That Col. J. W. Alspaugh, President of the Board of Trustees, be 
authorized to execute a mortgage on the real estate of Trinity College to secure 
the legacies of Dr. C. G. Siddell, Mrs. Sarah Steele, and Mrs. Ann E. Earn- 
hardt, left to Trinity College. 

7th. That the following persons recommended by the Trustees at their last 
regular annual meeting, be elected Trustees of Trinity College to fill vacancies: 
Rev. W. C. Norman, James A. Gray, Esq., Rev. W. M. Robey, D. D., Prof 
II. W. Spinks and J. W. Mauney. L. W. CR.A.WFORD,

Upon investigation we find that the Secretary, D. \V. Bain, by direction oj

(Document No. 6.) 
REPORT OF COMMITTEE ON TEMPERANCE. 

Your committee on Temperance desire to make the following report: 

Whereas, the mission of the Church is to eradicate evil and implant good 
among the people; and whereas, the traffic in spirituous liquors is the most pro- 
lific source of evil, and the greatest hinderance to the work of the Church, 
throwing its baleful effec s across the hearth stone, into the pew, and even some- 
times reaching the pulpit itself, enticing the young, conquering the middle aged 
and besotting the old, shading the glory of the nation, obstructing every]|legiti- 
mate line of business, and blighting the opening flowers of happiness in many 
a home circle; and finally, ruining for both worlds, those who prosecute the 
terrible business; therefore 

Resolved \st. That the Church has the right, and ought to oppose the Liquor 
Traffic by every proper means within her reach. 

Resolved id. That we request the preachers to preach at least once during 
the next Conference year, on this subject, in each congregation, presenting the 
matters in every view practicable. 

Resolved -^d. That we believe Prohibition by law, as absolutely essential to 
success in the temperance movement, and that we w-ill promote its progress by 
every means within our power.

(Document No. 7.) 
REPORT OF COMMITTEE ON CHURCH PROPERTY. 

We, your committee on Church Property, beg leave to report as follows: 

We find an increase in church buildings during the Conference year of 21. 
Increase in value of church buildings of $49,998. Increase in number of par- 
sonages 4. Increase in value $11,045. 

We find the following facts, and upon them present the resolutions following: 

1st. That, in many instances, churches have been built upon lands for which 
deeds have not been obtained, that in others, deeds have a reversionary clause, 
or are made to individuals as trustees, and not in conlormiiy with the require- 
ment* of the Discipline. 

2d. That church buildings in some instances have gone into disuse and our 
Church is liable to lose them and the grounds on which they stand. 

3d. That parsonages and furniture in some instances are improperly used 
and abused, on charges where they exist, by being rented out and otherwise. 

That a large number of pastoral charges have no parsonages, which bears 
unequally upon the preachers sent to them and upon the charges themselves 
in the matter of assessments by the District stewards; therefore resolved 

1st. That it shall be the duly of all quarterly conferences to inquire into 
titles, and where necessary to appoint efficient committees to procure deeds in 
proper form. 

2d. That church buildings which have gone into disuse and are not likely to 
be used again, be sold and invested in other church buildings on the same 
charge. 

3d. That the building of churches and parsonages on lands for which a proper 
deed has not been first obtained, be carefully avoided in all cases. That all our 
churches be made comfortable for congregations and Sunday schools by procur- 
ing stoves, &c. That our preachers urge upon boards of stewards and trustees 
the necessity of procuring proper locations and building houses for worship to 
comport favorably with the better class of residences in the community in 
which they are built. 

3d. That, on pastoral charges without proper parsonages, the boards of stew- 
ards are expected to rent proper houses for their pastors, and such pastors are 
directed to report such sums as are paid for such rents, separately from their 
salaries and noc as a part of the salary. 

Respectfully submitted, (Signed) J. B. Bobkitt, 

For the Committee.

REPORT OF COMMITTEE ON QUARTERLY REVIEW. 

The committee to whom were referred the interests of the Quarterly Review, 
beg leave to submit the following report: 

Recognizing the need of a connectional periodical of this class, fully abreast 
of the times in its watchfulness of the interests of the Church, and its ability to 



JOURNAL OF PROCEEDINGS. "/-J 

meet the demands of modern thought, and behaving that every Methodist 
preacher at least should keep himself thoroughly posted in current literature as 
it expounds the truths of our holy religion and combats the errors of skepticism 
and infidelity, we heartily endorse the efforts of Dr. Ilinton to supply this 
great want. We appreciate the magnitude and importance of the work which 
the editor of the Review is doing, and we point with pride and pleasure to the 
result of that work. We deem it not too much to say that the Review under 
its present management, has never in its history, been .surpassed in literary ex- 
cellence and general merit, and we predict, that it is destined soon to win its 
way to a larger field of usefulness than it has ever filled in the past. 

We offer the following resolutions for consideration in connection with this 
report: 

Resolved, That the Quarterly Revieiv of the Methodist Episcopal Church, 
South, edited by Rev. J. W. Hinton, D. D., is worthy of the earnest support 
of our ministry and laity. 

Resolved, That this Conference ought to use all reasonable means to increase 
its circulation, thereby disseminating a wholesome theological literature among 
our people. J. B. Bobbitt, 

E. A. Yates,

Committee. 



(Document No. 9.) 
REPORT OF COMMITTEE ON BIBLE CAUSE. 

Your committee to whom was referred the subject of the Bible cause, as it 
looks for support, and stands connected with the work of the Church in our 
midst, beg leave to report that, from what investigation they have been able to 
give to the matter, there is in some parts of the State, and among many fami- 
lies in most parts of the State, very great destitution of the Word of God. In 
a single town of only a few thousand population there have recently been discov- 
ered more than one hundred families without a copy of the Sacred Scriptures. 
The Bible is the " sword of the spirit," the "lamp to our feet and light to our 
pathway," the weapon of the spirit's mighty warfare against sin, and no indivi- 
dual or family, or Church, or community can be without this great blessing in 
the fullness of supply without irreparable loss. Therefore, 

Resolved \st. That we recognize the American Bible .Society as an agency in 
the dissemination of truth and the accomplishment of good second only to the 
living ministry, and that in all possible ways we will co-operate with its work in 
our respective fields of labor. 

Resolved id. That, in our pastoral work and intercourse with the people, we 
will specially inquire, and see to it, that all families coming within our knowl- 
edge are supplied with the Bible. 

Resolved 3^/, Th. t we will encourage our people everywhere, bypu!)lic coUec-

destitute places throughout the world.

REPORT OF COMMITTEE ON DLSTRICT CONFERENCE 

RECORDS. 

The committee on District Conference Records, for the year 1885, beg leave 
to report: * 

All the journals, excepts that of the Washington District, hnve been placed 
in our hands, and have been carefully examined. 

The journals of the Raleigh, Greensboro, Stalesville and VVarrenton Districts 
are in excellent condition. 

The journals of the other Districts are more or less defective. 

The journals of the Charlotte and Wilmington Districts have imperfect rolls. 

The journal of the Salisbury District has an imperfect roll, and omits the re- 
port of the committee on Quarterly Conference Records. 

The journal of the Fayetteville District has no roll; does not show who were 
present; contains no reports from the pastoral charges and several sessions of 
the Conference are reported as having adjourned without stating ho-v they ad- 
journed. 

The journal of the Durham District does not show who presided at several 
of the sessions, nor how one of its sessions was closed. 

The journal of the Shelby District does not show who reported for the sev- 
eral pastoral charges. One report is placed between the closing of the morning 
session and the opening of the evening session. Does not show who presided 
during the second day nor how the morning session closed. There is no men- 
tion of the reading of the minutes. 

The journal of the New Berne District is very defective. The names of 
alternates who do not take the place of delegates appear on the roll as mem- 
bers. Minutes of several sessions not read and approved. Important words 
left out in many places and many things stated in a vague and indefinite way. 

The journal of Trinity College District has the names of all the alternates 
on the roll as members, and the Sunday-school statistics are recorded after the 
minutes have been signed by the chairman and secretary.
