HoYLE : 

MEMOIR OF REV. THOMAS L. HOYLE. 

Rev. Thomas L. Hoyle was born in the State of Maryland, opposite the 
city of Alexandria, December nth, 1811. His parents were" Jacob and 
Sarah M. Hoyle, both members of the Baptist Church, but iheir young son, 
eighteen years old, having been converted at a Methodist Camp Meeting, 
un ted in church fellowship with that denomination. In the month of 
March, in the year 1837 (I think), recognizing the call of God to the glori- 
ous work of the Christian ministry, he offered himself to the Baltimore Con- 
ference, was received on trial, and tran-ferred to the Virginia Conference. 
His first appointment was to the Caroline Circuit as the colleague of Robert 
Scoit. The year following he was in charge of King William Circuit. From 
this he was sent to Elizabeth City Station, in the State of North Carolina. 
Then to Charlotte Circuit, Va., for two years, and the two years following 
to Campbell Circuit. While on the Campbell Circuit he was married to 
Mrs. Martha Camp, with whom he lived in happy wedlock until' the 
year 1S76. when they were separated by the death of his wife. 

Soon after his marriage, Bro Hoyle located in Campbell county, Virginia, 
where he for a few years engaged in teaching a classical school and superin- 
tending a farm, and preached well-nigh every Sunday, and did much to aid 
in protracted meetings, in which he found much pleasure. He was re-ad- 
mitted into the Virginia Conference, and was appointed to Culpepper 
county, Leesburg .Station, Louisa Circuit, Emory Circuit, Madison Circuit, 
and Cumberland Circuit, when, in 1859. he was forced to locate because of 
the health of his wife. He was never permitted again to do any regular 



JOURNAL OF PROCEEDINGS. 2/ 



work, except in 1S72, he traveled extensively as agent of the Virginia 
Bible Society. Soon after the death of his wife he came to Oxford, N. C, 
on a visit to his brother, Rev. S. V. Hoyie, of the North Carolina Confer- 
ence, and in the fall of that year, 1S76, was re-admitted into the traveling 
connection in the North Carolina Conference, at its session in the city of 
Greensboro, and appointed to Warrenton Station for the year 1877. In 
1878 he traveled the Madison Circuit; in 1879, the Marion Circuit. In May 
of that year, he was united in marriage to Miss Nannie J. Martin, of Rock- 
ingham county, N. C. In 18S0, he traveled the Columbia Circuit; in 1881. 
he was stationed at Smithville; in 1882, he traveled Gaston Circuit; in 1S83, 
Cherry Mountain Circuit, and at the session of the Conference for that year, 
held in Statesville, N. C, he was placed on the superannuated list, and re- 
mained in that relation until he was removed by death. In the early part 
of my ministry it was my good fortune to be brought into close association 
with Bro. Hoyle, and it gives me pleasure to be permitted to bear my hum- 
ble testimony to the worth and excellency of his Christian and ministerial 
character. No one was more successful in winning souls and in building up 
the cause of Christ. Especially was his ministry blessed on Charlotte Cir- 
cuit, where several hundred converts and accessions were made to 
the church during his two years on that charge. As far as I know or have 
reason to believe, his character was above reproach — withoul a blemish. 
While residing in the county of Madison, in Virginia, his labors, as a local 
preacher, were so abundant, and so greatly blessed in the conversion of 
souls, that he acquired a large influence among all classes of the community, 
and all denominations of Christians. The people were always pleased when 
his services were called into requisition by the regular pastor. While trav- 
eling as a regular pastor in the Virginia Conference, he was regarded as one 
of our most successful and promising young preachers. He was a special 
favorite with that prince of preachers, Lewis Skidmore, whose house was 
one of his favorite homes. 

Bro. Hoyle's style of preaching was argumentative and logical, and his 
applications and exhortations were heart-searching and powerful. I have 
seen large congregations deeply impressed by his earnest appeals, and many 
brought to Christ through his instrumentality. I think I make no mistake 
when I say you may apply to him the inspired commendation of Barnabas: 
" He was a good man, full of the Holy Ghost and of faith and much peop'e 
were added to the Lord." 

After being superannuated, Bro. Hoyle moved to Rockingham county, 
and lived in Madison and Ayersville, where he engaged, while able, in the 
mercantile business, until, after a lingering and pamful illness, he passed 
away on the 25th of January, i888. 



NORTH CAROLINA ANNUAL CONFERENCE. 



Shortly after reaching Madison Circuit last December, I paid him a visit, 
and found him very feeble, but he seemed to enjoy very much the service I 
held wiih him, but spoke of the bodily afH ctions weighing the spirit down; 
"but," said I, substantially this, "you feel your acceptance with God, do 
you not?" And his answer was substantially this: " O, if I did not. this 
room couldn't hold me." 

On the 27ih of January, i8SS, I preached his funeral, and we laid him 
away, in a quiet, lonely place to rest and await the resurrection morn. 

" Servant of God, well done! 
Rest from thy loved employ; 
The battle fought, the vicl'ry won, 
Enter thy Master's joy." 

Remarks in eulogy were made by Bishop Granbery. 
Jonathan Sanfokd read the memoir of DANIEL May: 

iMEMOIR OF REV. DANIEL MAY. 

The subject of this memoir was born in Anson county, N. C, May 2ist, 
1822, and died in Lumberton, N. C, February Sih, 1888. 

June 12th, 1S43, he was converted, and joined the church at Wadesboro, 
N. C, under the m'nistry of Rev. Henry H. DuRant. This was the mem- 
orable year in which five hundred persons joined our church on VVadcsboro 
Circuit. With a profound conviction that God had called him to pieach 
his gospel, Daniel May was admitted on trial at the Conference held at 
Wadesboro, N. C, 1850, Bishop Andrew presiding. He was ordained 
deacon in Sumpter, S. C, 1853, by Bishop Capers, and Elder in Columbia, 
S. C, 1854. by Bishop Pierce. The first charge to which he was sent : 

1851, Cambahee and Ashapoo Mission; 

1852, Rutherford Circuit; 
i353-'4, Charlotte Circuit; 
i855-'6, Spartanburg Circuit; 
1857, Albemarle Circuit; 
iS58-'9, Cypress Circuit; 
i860, Newton Circuit; 
i86i-'2-'3,-'4. Rockhill Circuit; 
1865 Lincolnton Circuit; 
l866-'7, Rutherford Circuit; 



1 868, Supernumerary; 
iS69-'70-'7i, Newton Circuit; 
i872-'3-'4, Superannuated; 

1875, Newton Circuit; 

1876, Monroe Station; 

1877, Elizabeth Circuit; 
i878-'9-'8o-'8i, Lumberton Circuit; 
iS82-'3, Washington Station; 
1884, Laurinburg Circuit; 

1SS5, Smilhfield Circuit, to which he did not go, on account of^financial 
embarrassment. 

i886-'7, Elizabeth Circuit. 

Here ends the active labors of the faithful man of God. His failing 
health compelled him to cease from his "loved employ," and in less than 
three months from the lime his name was taken from the effective list, the 
Master called him. A good man, a faithful preacher, and ripe Christian, 
has gone to his reward. We bow in humble submission to the will of God, 
and feel assured that the world is better because Daniel May lived in it. 

For twenty years in the South Corolina Conference, and seventeen in the 
North Carolina, he has left the impress of his character and holy life. In 
his ministry he was successful in winning souls to Christ, aggressive, un- 
compromising, when he believed he was right, in spite of adverse criticism 
or positive antagonism. He was too honest in his convictions to ask, " Is 
it popular?" The great question with him was. Is it right? Answered in 
the affirmative, he was as firm as a rock, and unyielding as the truth which 
he defended. 

Daniel May was left an orphan at twelve years old, without any rich or 
influential friends to assist him in securing anything more than a common 
school education. Confronted by adverse circumstances from the beginning, 
his educational advantages were created in his own indomitable will to suc- 
ceed in whatever he undertook. In his success we discover one of the sali- 
ent points of his character. I will, with Daniel May, had a meaning which 
expressed itself in action, looking to the accomplishment of the object in 
view. He never stopped short of his utmost endeavors. 

Profoundly impressed that God had called him to preach, the magnitude 
and responsibility of his high calling impelled him to use his best endeavors 
to qualify himself for the largest possible measure of success. To be a 
good preacher, to understand intelligently the truths which he was called to 
preach, to save souls and glorify God, engrossed all the faculties of his mind 
and heart. To this end he directed all his energies. By God's grace as- 



I 



sisting him through his own assiduous efforts, Daniel May was more than 
an ordinary preacher. 

In the structure of his sermons, he made no attempt at rhetorical em- 
belishment, because he had the good sense to know he would have been a 
failure ; but in the adjustment of the grand truths which God has revealed 
to instruct, warn and comfort, he had but few superiors. He had a quick 
peception of the truth, as well as a peculiar tact in so arranging it that 
others might see it when proclaimed. His arguments were solid, his ser- 
mons ponderous, always freighted with truths wisely selected from the Holy 
Scriptures. He was a close student and an apt scholar. 

Daniel May was e.xceptionally gifted in warning sinners "to flee the 
wrath to come." He was not afraid to declare the whole counsel of God, 
and was evidently in his element when hurling the thunderbolts of Sinai 
amid the workers of iniquity. 

Daniel May was a terror to evil doers, and could handle the battle-axe 
with wonderful effect. The strongholds of Satan yielding to his ponderous 
strokes, his devotees exposed in the light of divine truth, surrendered to 
the Master and cried for mercy. Some of us have heard him, when, seem- 
ingly inspired for the time and circumstances, the pulpit or stand at the 
camp-meeling was converted into a throne of thunder from which the great 
truths of God leaped like huge billows of wrath against the ranks of the 
ungodly. 

We find among the records of his heroic labors: Cypress Circut, 350 
joined the church; Spartanburg Circuit, 400; Newton Circuit, 350. The 
most remarkable record we find was at a camp-meeting. He had retired to 
rest for the night. The people came and asked him to go and preach again. 
He did so, and So souls were converted and j >ined the church that night. 
A short time before his death, he remarked to his wife : "I have tried to do 
some good in the world. These hands have introduced 3,000 or 4,000 into 
the church I love." Only a few nights after this conversation, the palsied 
hands dropped the baltle-axe to grasp the palm, and the Tishbite from the 
hills of Anson went home to God. The battle-scarred soldier of the Cross 
was not neglected in his infirmities by those whom he had served for four 
consecutive years, and when his lifeless body was brought into the church 
which stands as a monument to his enterprising spirit, all were ready to 
join in the song : 

"Servant of God, well done."

He leaves a wife and nine children, with a host of friends, to mourn his 
deijarture. His kindness, as a husband and father, is indcllibly written on 
the minds and hearts of his dear family, for whom he was intensely solicit- 
ous to the last. 

His work among us is done. Free from guile, true in all the relations of 

life the intrepid servant of God, who, like his namesake, the Prophet of 

Babylon, and hero of Medo-Persia, " served God continually," has gone to 

his reward. He had the moral courage out of which martyrs are made, and 

would have given his life to Him who has said : " Be thou faithful unto 

death." 

" Calm are the holy dead. 

When the passion of life is o'er, 

When the green turf flowers o'er the resting head, 

And the turbulent dreams of the world have fled. 

And the wild heart throbs no more." 

Remarks in eulogy were made by JOHN R. BROOKS, 
P. J. Carraway, J. W. North, J. H. Cordon and W. 
S. Black. 

J. A. Cuninggim read the memoir of Nathan H. D. 
Wilson : 

memoir of rev. n. h. d. wilson. 

Nathan Hunt Daniel Wilson, son of John and Mary Wilson, was born in 
Guilford county, N. C, December 23d, 1822, and died at Franklinton, N. 
C, May 15th, 1888, aged sixty-five years, four months and twenty-two days. 
He was born again into Christ's spiritual kingdom at a camp-meeting, held 
at Pleasant Garden, Guilford Circuit, North Carolina Conference, in 1840, 
Rev. Alfred Norman, preacher in charge, and united with the Methodist 
Episcopal Church at Muir's Chapel in 1842. He was licensed to preach by 
the Quarterly Conference of the same circuit in 1843, Rev. S. S. Bryant, P. 
E. He was admitted on trial into the North Carolina Conference at Hali- 
fax, Virginia, in 1843, Bishop Thomas A. Morris, presiding. He was or- 
dained deacon at Washington, N. C, in 1845, by Bishop James O. Andrew, 
and ordained elder at Greensboro, N. C, in 1847, by the same Bishop. He 
received an appointment annually for forty-four years, and was ab- 
sent from the annual sessions of the Conference but once during that time. 

The first year of his ministry he was helper on Caswell Circuit, with 
Alfred Norman, P. C. The second on Roanoke Circuit, Rev. W. J. Duval,

P. C. The tliird and fourth years he was in charge of Washington Station. 
The fifth sent to Plymouth Station. The sixth and seventh years in charge 
of Danville Station, Va., but at that time embraced within the North Caro- 
lina Conference. The eighth year he returned to Washington Station. The 
ninth year, the first of his married life, he was again in charge of New 
Berne Station. The tenth and eleventh in charge of Greensboro Station. 
The twelfth Presiding Elder of Salisbury District. The four years follow- 
ing he was Presiding Elder of Greensboro District. The next two years 
Agent for Trinity College. Through the war, and for a few years thereaf- 
ter, he was appointed to Company Shops, Hillsboro, Trinity College, High 
Point and Thomasville, Lexington, and Guilford Circuit. He was re-ap- 
pointed to the office of Presiding Elder in 1873, to fill the vacancy caused 
by the death of Dr. N. F. Reid, on the Greensboro District, where he re- 
mained for three years following. Then four years on the Raleigh District, 
four on the Hillsboro, now Durham District, then returned to Raleigh Dis- 
trict, where he had hearly completed one-half of the fourth year in this 
second term — and has completed his life work — ceasing at once to work and 
live. 

On Saturday, May 5th, Dr. Wilson and his wife left Raleigh for Louis- 
burg, N. C. He was not well enough, really, to make the trip, but he was 
so anxious to meet his appointment that he went against the protest of his 
friends. On Sunday at 11 A. M., he preached his last sermon. It was in 
Louisburg, and from the text: "God is no respecter of persons, but in 
every nation he that feareth God and worketh righteousness is accepted with 
him." Those who heard him say the sermon made a profound impression, 
and was one of the best of his ministry. 

On Monday evening, the 7th, he went to Franklinton and stopped to 
spend the night with Mr. and Mrs. S. C. Vann. During the night, about 
I o'clock, he was taken violently ill. For several days he suffered very 
much, but his physicians did not regard him as critically ill until the follow- 
ing Sunday morning, when he very unexpectedly grew worse, and it was 
thought he would die before night. During Sunday night he rallied some. 
In the afternoon of Monday he began to sink again, and his death was 
looked for every hour. He was dying from Monday morning until 3:40 p. 
m. Tuesday, when he breathed his last. 

Rev. J. J. Renn was with him during all his sickness, and watched him 
with tenderest devotion. He was visited twice by Rev. J. T. Gibbs. Rev. 
J. D. Arnold reached him Monday, and remained with him to the last. 
Rev. A. McCullen, Rev. F. L. Reid and Rev. J. S. Nelson also visited him. 
His son, John N. Wilson, reached him on Monday morning, and Mrs. 
Parks, his daughter, and Mr. and Mrs. J. T. LeGrand, his son-in-law and 



daiigliter, reached him on Tuesday morning bofore he died. All these he 
recognized and was rej )iced to see. 

From ihe beginning of his sickness he thought he would die, and fre- 
quently gave utterance to expressions of the grandest triumph. For two 
days he often sang : 

"Oh, to be robed and ready." 

saying at the clo.se : " Ready ! ready ! yes, that's it. ready." The day fol- 
lowing he several limes sang : 

" Saviour, more than life to me." 

After this he was too weak to sing, but often quoted parts of the hymn, 
" My Saviour, my Almighty Friend." At one time his wife asked him for 
some expression of faith. He replied : " I know that my Redeemer liveth," 
etc. At one time he raised his arms with a bright, startled look, and ex- 
claimed : " What does it all mean ?" Bro. Renn said : " What do you see. 
Doctor?" He replied: "The people, oh, the people; a multitude of 
people," and then sank back on his pillow as if the vision had passed 
away. 

Monday night, in the midst of a paroxysm of pain, Rev. F. L. Reid 
spoke of his suffering so much. He waved his hand and said joyously : 
" Though He slay me, yet will I trust Him." When near the end he said : 

" Part of the host have crossed the flood, 
And part are crossing now." 

Hislast distinct utterance was ; " Almost home ! almosthome." He was 
perfectly conscious to the last. When he could no longer speak nor see, 
with hearing almost gone, his wife, in a loud voice, asked him to raise his 
hand if he was still trusting in Jesus. Too weak to lift his hand, he 
raided his finger. Thus in a holy triumph he passed away. 

On Wednesday morning the remains were taken by the family and friends 
to Raleigh; deposited in the Edenton Street Church until 5 p. m., and then 
conveyed to his home in Greensboro. 

On Thursday, the 17th, the funeral took place in West Market Street 
Church, conducted by Rev. J. A. Cuninggim, Presiding Elder of the Greens- 
boro District, assisted by Revs. J. E. Mann, W. C. Norman, V. A. Sharpe, 
R. A. Willis, F. L. Reid, J. J. Renn, T. M. Jones, D. D., and Rev. Dr. C. 
F. Deems. The remains were laid in the Methodist Cemetery. The ser- 
vices at the grave were read by Revs P. F. W. Slamey, R. P. Troy and J. 
A. Cuninggim. 

In addition to the beautiful floral offerings from Louisburg, Henderson 
Franklinion, Raleigh and Greensboro, an old colored cook of Dr. Wilson's

family came up with a few flowers, saying, "they are not much, and are 
n )t fit to go wiih the rich ones, but he made no difference between 
the rich and poor." She wanted to put them on his coffin. 

Dr. Wilson's parents were Quakers, from whom he derived the birth- 
right among them. After his conversion among the Methodists (ihe church 
of his sainted grandmother) and years of attendance upon, and participation 
in the work of a Methodist Sunday-school, his preference for that chuich 
was so warm and decided that he resolved to join them, yet through re-pect 
to his parents, he did not unite with the Church fur two years. In the mean- 
time he attended class and other meetings among the Methodists, and so 
grew in grace and beauty of character that his parents withdrew all oppo- 
si ion to his sincere desire for change of Church relation, and to the end of 
their lives bade him Godspeed, and waited wiih great pleasure upon his 
ministry when he preached in reach of them. 

He was educated at a high school, and afterwards at the college at New 
Garden, in his native couniy, two institalions owned and patronized mainly 
by the "Society of Friends." Upon the foundation thus laid " he buildcd 
wisely and well," so as to become in practical, Christian culture, a recog- 
nized leader in connection with the educational interest in his own Chuich 
and State. 

In the ninth year of his ministry he was married to Mary Jane Gregory, 
of Wa:shington, N. C, the daui;hter of Rev. George N. Gregory, who was 
for some years a member of the Virginia Conference, and for the latter years 
of his life was a local preacher, in the town of Washington, N. C. The 
faithful wife, 

" Who has clung to him like a vine 
Around its chosen forest tree," 

has now lost the visible support of his strong arm, but has the help of 
that subtle power, which so grand a life has interwoven into her very being, 
and will help to hold and draw her up into the very heavens into which he 
has entered. O, God, comfort her, and let them meet in heaven. Twelve 
children were born to them, seven of whom now rejoice with the father, 
while five, all grown, and members of Christ's Church, weep with the 
mother. What an interplay of interest there must be between those who 
are separated, it may be, only by an invisible line. 

" One family they dw^ell in him — 
Though now divided by the narrow 
Stream of death." 



JOURNAL OF PROCIiEDINGS. 35 



How glorions the thought that each of these lives may be so heauliful 
in holiness as to culminate in unbroken union in glory everlasting ! God 
grant it, for Jesus' sake. 

The heaviest burden of Dr. Wilson's life came from an effort to meet 
the wants of his family during and after the war. His enfeeljled condition 
from a protracied spell of fever, left him unable for several ycjrs to do ac- 
tive work as a preacher. Rather than have his family a charge upon the 
Church, he entered into temporary business connectinns, and was successful. 
His de-ire to promote the cause of education prompted him to loan to the 
Conference Female College more perhaps than he ought to have ri-ked, 
even in so good a cause. The financial pres.vure of 1S73 emljarrassed the 
college, and thereby absorbed all that he had, as he supposed, provided for 
his family. It has ever been a deep grief to him that others lost by the 
failure. Notwithstanding this, God gave him grace to bear all, and strength 
10 work with cheerfulness, and increasing j jy and honois to the glorious 
end of so g and a life. 

His superior ability gave him great prominence in all the affairs of 
his Church, local or general, with which he had been connected. He was a 
member of every session of the General Conference from 1S58, exctpt that 
held in Memphis in 1870. Once he received the highest vo'e for Bishop of 
any one who was not elected. The last night of the General Conference 
in Richmond will be memorable to many who witnessed the deference paid 
Dr. Wilson by Bishop McTycire, who was presiding, as well as by the 
whole body, as he read and commented on the report on Church Trials, 
now so valuable in our Church work. His power of analysis, his clear 
statement of propositions, and his force and beauty of language, gave him 
a willing hearing everywhere. In the General, or Annual, or Quarterly 
Conference ; in the Trustee rooms at Trinity College or Chapel Hill, in the 
social circle, the pulpit, the Bishop's council, or the hymn-book committee, 
yea, eveiywhere that duty associated him v\ itli one or many, his goodness 
and his greatness were felt. What a legacy his life has been to humanity — 
to his own Church — to the friends who knew the stcrtts of his heart and 
the strength of his love and friendship ; but above all, to his wife and chil- 
dren, who knew him best, loved him most, and will miss him as none oihers 
can ! Yet when we call to mind tl.e great sufferings he endured for so many 
years, the burdens which so often pressed him down — the fact that he has 
served m so long and so well — and that through giace we may go to him at 
last, /et us not wish him back, but amid our tears thank God that he rests 
from his labors forever with his Lord and Saviour ; yes, sweetly, sweetly 
rests 



36 NORTH CAROLINA ANNUAL COMFERENCE. 



Above all would I emphasize the fact that this grand life was but the 
Christ-life being expressed through his body and spirit — faith uniting the 
two as the vine and branch are one. I have witnessed his testings since 
1870, which have been of almost every character — yet his faith was ever 
simple, his confidence strong, his joy unfailing the oil in the vessel wiih 
the lamp, artd simply wailing for the summons. It came and found him at 
his post of duty, fully ready. What greetings when he entered, from fel- 
low-laborers and kinsmen and Christ! Let us join him there. Amen. 

The following preamble to .some resolutions adopted 
by the church at Oxford gives voice to the opinion of 
the whole Church : 

" By the sad intelligence of the death of Dr. N. H. D. Wilson we are 
brought to realize the irreparable loss which we, in common with the Church 
at large, have thereby sustained. 

For many years past we have learned to regard him as by far the most 
prominent figure in the North Carolina Conference, a leader whose exalted 
wisdom, whose intellectual vigor, whose comprehensive knowledge of affairs, 
whose full and varied learning, whote stainless chaiac er and warm and 
affectionate heart, made him a tower of strength to the church and the ob- 
ject of veneration and love to all who knew him. 

Dr. Wilson was a preacher of unusual power. Without the lofty elo- 
quence of a Pierce, or the charming magnetism of a Marvin, his sermons 
were always clear in statement, convmcing in argument, full of instruction, 
imbued with a profound, Christian philosophy, and rich with the ripe fruit 
of Christian experience, and in his latter years were often pervaded with a 
deep pathos that did not fail to stir the tenderest emotions of his hearers, 
and told how closely he dwelt upon the border of the better land. 

With a large brain, cast in a logical mould and trained by the best culture 
in dialeciics, and with a catholic love of the right, his mind was of that judi- 
cial character which discriminates quickly between truth and error, and 
leads almost infallibly to right conclusions. 

In the walks ot civil life Dr. Wilson would easily have attained to the 
highest honors in statesmanship or in judicial station, for, without obtrusive 
self-assertion, he was a born leader, always calm, always thoroughly in- 
formed, always master of the situation, and fearless of any adversary, he 
was impelled to the front by virtue of his acknowledged superiority. 

In the councils of the Church his temper was conciliatory, but his opin- 
ions, when declared, were usually the end of controveisy, and rarely, if 
ever, was there occasion to regret the adoption of his v.ews. 



JOURNAL OF PROCEEDINGS. 37 



In the latter years of his life he was a great sufferer from physical infirmity, 
but like a courageous soldier of the Cross he endured affliction with manly 
fortitude— he nevtr asked a furlough, and was never taken to the rear. 
Verily, he fought the good fight, he kept the faiih, and was ready to be 
ofifered up. He died with his armor on, and in the forefront of battle. 

While an entrance has been administered unto him abundantly into the 
everlasting kingdom of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ, he has left to 
us the ric i legacy of a name that illustrates all that is noble and pure in 
Christian character, and that shall not cease to be a pnwer for good till all 
who knew him shall have passed from earth." 

J. J. Renn. 

The memoirs were adopted. 

During these services the hour of i o'clock arrived, and 
the time of the session was extended. 

On behalf of the Board of Missions, E. A. Yates read 
the memoir of WiLLIAM M. Parker, late a lay member 
of that Board. 

MEMOIR OF W. M. PARKER. 

The subject of this memoir was a representative layman of the Metho- 
dist E. Church, South, and for many years a member of the Board of 
Missions of, and frequently a delegate to, the North Carolina Annual 
Conference. 

He was a native of the State of Connecticut, but removed to North Caro- 
lina some years before the late war, married in Fayelteville, and settled in 
Wilmington. He passed through the duties and pleasures of the sessson of 
the Conference at Fayelteville of last year, and had started to the steamer 
to return home, when he was taken with a severe hemorrhage, and return- 
ii g to the hotel, expired the next day, in the presence of his weeping wife, 
his distressed pastor and sorrowing friends. He was a fine reprtsentasive 
of our intelligent, pious and devoted laymen. He made it a matter of 
conscience to faithfully discharge the duties imposed upon him by the Church, 
whether in the prayer-meeting, the B. ard of Stewards, the Quarterly and 
District Conferences, the Board of Missions, or the Annual Conference, he 
was always the same faithful attendant and intelligent and generous worker. 
He loved the Conference, and every individual preacher, and took great 
pleasure in cultivating the acquaintance of the young preachers, and help- 
ing them. 









At the close of the session of the Conference in Wilmington four years 
ago. having devoted, with this writer, many days and nights to pioviding 
for the Conference, that the preachers and laymen might be pleasantly 
emertained, he was taken with that same terrible disea-ie which finally sev- 
ered the soul and bony, and lingered for weeIvS bttween lile and death. So 
severe was the anatk that he could not be removed fur twenty-four hcurs 
from the fl lor in his sluing room, where he fell. I knelt over him when I 
was almost sure he could not live five minutes, and after a brief prayer, I 
asked him if he was ready for the change. Mis reply was: " Oh, yes; I 
have made. preparation for this hour long ago, and I am ready !" But God 
was pleaded to spaie him f<'ur years longer to the Church he loved so well, 
and when He finally called him he was sti 1 ready, and heard the summons 
vvjih a steady foith and a calm heart. I was with him when he died, and 
lelt that " the chamber whirre the good man met his fate was privileged 
b> yond the common ualks of virtuous life, quiie in the verge of heaven." 

Brother Parker never neglecied any duly miposed upon him by his Church. 
He was always ihe friend of his pastor, and the helper of the needy. 
Wise in council, faithful in labor, and generous in support, he turned the 
buidcns <.f the Church into pleasures, and found his highest happine s in 
the service of his God. 

But, we shall no more see his face and pleasant smile at our annual gath- 
erings. He has gone up to join ihe General Assembly and Churnh of the 
Fir>l-Born in heaven, and with the redeemed and glorifiid, forever freed 
from sickness and suffering, qualified by patient endurance and faith for 
assnciation wiih his Lord, he awaits our coming. " Let me die the death 
of the righteous, and let my last end be like his." 

E. A. Yates. 

Remarks in eulogy were made by N. A. HoOKER, W. 
S. Crlasv and F. 1). SwiNDKLL. 

On motion of E. A. Yates, the memoir was ordered 
to be recorded and printed in the Conference journal.

52 NORTH CAROLINA ANNUAL CONFERENCE. 



APPENDIX. 



[Document No. i.] 
REPORT ON COLPORTAGE. 

A reading church will make an effective church. As the light of the spring 
sun starts and carries along the rising sap in vine and tree, and makes them 
bloom and bear fruit, so the sun of intelligence quickens the zeal and energy 
of Christians, and induces them to lead fruitful lives. But into the many fam- 
ilies of our church members good books and pure periodicals, and it will stim- 
ulate the hearts of the people to do, and illuminate their minds to guide them 
in inaugurating such plans of church work as will give broader diffusion of the 
gospel among men. Missionary intelligence will generate missionary zeal. A 
deeper insight into the value of Sunday-schools will send more children into 
these schools, and make better teachers. Put more intelligence in the pew and 
there will be more fire and force in the pulpit. Enlighten the people, and 
larger donations will be made for the endowment of our college, our annual 
collections will increase, and the deficiencies in our pastor's salaries will disap- 
pear. Give a wider sweep of vision as to the worth of the souls, and there 
will be more earnest work in laboring for revivals. 

We repeat, then, a reading church will be a working church. Now, to pro- 
duce such a desirable result is the end of our colportage system. Thus we see 
that the colportage system is a most valuable agency in building np the King- 
dom of Christ. There is a broad and ripe field for the Colporteur in the North 
Carolina Conference. From the seashore to the mountains the field is whiten- 
ing for the reapers. The force of colporteurs led on by Rev. T. J. Gattis, our 
Agent of Colportage, have done a good year's work. The Agent Has traveled 
4,000 miles, visited ten District Conferences, preached sixty sermons, made 
fifty addresses, sold 9,500 books, and 5.500 smaller publications, making a 
total of 15,000 publications sold, amounting to the sum of f9,i73.o<<. Eight 
District Colporteurs have been employed, and about one hundred preachers in 
charge have patronized the Agent. The Board of Colportage regards this a 
fine showing for the second year's work. 

We recommend the adoption of the following resolutions : 

Resolved isf. That in order to make the Colportage work self-sustaining, it 
is important that all parties purchasing books of the Agent shall pay for them 
promptly, and we earnestly request and urge this upon all such purchasers. 

Resolvod id. That Dr. H. T. Hudson be requested to prepare a catalogue 
of tracts suitable for distribution among our people, and that the same be pub- 
lished by the Agent, and put into the hands of all our preachers. 



JOURNAL OF PROCEEDINGS. 53 

Resolved ^d. That we most earnestly request the Agent of the Publishing 
House at Nashville, Tennessee, to make a special reduction of ten per cent, 
in excess of the usual discount allowed to ministers to our Agent of Colpor- 
tage, and that he be allowed as large a per cent, discount on the Sunday-school 
publications as is allowed to any one else. We think, in view of the amount of 
trade our Agent turns into the house, that he ought to have these special rates. 

Resolved ^tk. That we request our presiding Bishop to appointjRev. T.J. 
Gattis Agent of Colportage and Sunday-schools, and that we will heartily 
co-operate with him in his work and. as far as practicable, we will make our 
purchases of books through his agency. ■ 

Respectfully submitted, 

F. L. Reid, Chairman. 



[Document No. 2.] 
REPORT OF THE BOARD OF EDUCATION. 

The Board of Education beg leave to submit the following report: 
We are rejoiced to learn from the various reports of our schools and colleges, 
that these schools are, in the main, in a healthy and growing condition. Gen- 
erally, an increased patronage is reported, together with more thorough and 
better work. While this is encouraging, yet we can but realize the fact that 
only a beginning has been made. Much more needs to be done and must be 
done, and that right early. To this end, we would most earnestly urge our 
preachers and people to establish and support, as far as may be possible, good 
primary and preparatory schools within the bounds of their work. 

LITTLETON FEMALE COLLEGE. 

This institution, located at Littleton, N. C, is presided over by S. D. Bag- 
ley, with an efficient and well-equipped corps of teachers. We are glad to 
leain that this school is in good condition, and is doing good work. We com- 
mend it to the attention and patronage ot the people. 

JONESBORO HIGH SCHOOL. 

This is the District Conference School of the Fayetteville District, and is in 
charge of R. H. Broom, with competent assistants. This school is doing a 
good work, and we commend it to the consideration and support of the people. 

DAVENPORT FEMALE COLLEGE. 

This is the property of our Conference, but is not at this time under our 
control, having been leased to a private party for a term of years. Your Board 
have information, through a committee appointed last Conference, that the prop- 
erty has been abused, and that the terms of the contract have not been com- 
plied with by the "lessee ;" therefore 



$4 NORTH CAROLINA ANNUAL CONFERENCE. 

Resolved, That a committee of three be appointed to inquire into the true 
condition of the property, and to see the Trustees and urge them to look well 
after the property, and to see that the lessee makes good the original contract, 
the committee to report to the next annual Conference. 

CREENSBORO KEMALE COLLEGE. 

We are glad to learn of the succeess of this cherished institution of learn- 
ing. It is doing a grand and noble work for our church and State. Its Presi- 
dent, Dr. T. M. Jones, is one of the most successful female educators of our 
country. We most heartily commend this institution to the support and pat- 
ronage of our people. 

TRINITY COLLEGE. 

We are truly glad to have President Crowell with us, and we are much grat- 
ified with his report of the College, and would call the special attention of our 
people to this report. We earnestly commend President Crowell to the confi- 
dence of all the people, as a leader of our educational interests, worthy of the 
position he occupies. And we would again most earnestly urge our people to 
patronize and sustain Trinity College. And further, we recommend that the 
Conference request Presidenr Crowell, as far as practicable, to travel at large 
among the people in the interest of patronage, and the endowment fund for the 
College. 

We request the Bishop to appoint Rev. J. F. Heitman, a Professor in Trinity 
College, Rev. A. W. Mangum, D. D., a Professor in the University of North 
Carolina, and Rev. J. M. Rhodes, President of Henderson Female College. 

Resolved, That a collection of $5,000 for the College be taken during the 
ensuing Conference year, and that the apportionment of this amount to the 
several Districts be made by the President of the College, on the basis of the 
Conference Claimant Assessment, and that the pastors take this collection as 
their other collections ; these collections to be paid to the Treasurer of the 
Board of Trustees, to be disbursed under their directions, and through the 
Finance Committee of the College ; that we heartily approve the action of the 
Trustees in abolishing the Preparatory Department of the College, and that we 
recommend and urge the establishment of one or more Academies in each Pre- 
siding Elder's District, as preparatory to the colleges under the patronage of 
our Conference. Respectfully submitted, 

W. C. Gannon, Chairman. 
D. Matt. Thompson, Secretary.

REPORT OF COMMITTEE ON BOOKS AND PERIODICALS. 

Your committee beg leave to submit the following report : 
I. We rejoice that the period has been reached when our Publishing House 
enjoys freedom from debt, and is in such financial condition that the Book 
Committee have felt it safe to declare a dividend to the claimants specified in 
the sixth restrictive rule of our discipline ; and also to direct certain expendi- 
tures to be made to increase the facilities of the Publishing House for its busi- 
ness, and to improve its literature. 

J^2. We commend the publications of the house as in every way worthy the 
liberal and increased patronage of the chnrch. Our Sunday-school literature 
merits special commendation, and we urge upon our preachers and Sunday- 
school superintendents to use it in our Sunday-schools to the exclusion of liter- 
ature unexamined and unauthorized by our church. 

3. Believing, as we do, that the Church has need of a perodical of the char- 
acter of a first-class review, we approve the action of the Book Committee in 
appropriating fifteen hundred dollars, to be expended by the editor of our 
Review for contributions to its pages ; and we urge upon our preachers and 
educated laymen to subscribe for and read the Quarterly Review of our 
Church. 



JOURNAL OF PROCEEDINGS. 57 

4. We regard the Nashville Christian Advocate as in every way worthy the 
place it fills as our Conventional organ, and pledge our renewed efforts to 
increase its circulation among our people. 

5. We esteem the Raleigh Christian Advocate as one of the best in the 
family of our Advocates in its editorial management, its contributions, and its 
mecharical appearance ; and in our judgment, it should have a place in every 
Methodist family in our Conference ; therefore 

Resolved, That we heartily endorse the Raleigh Christian Advocate as the 
organ of the North Carolina Conference ; that we pledge our increased efforts 
to extend its circulation, and that we request the presiding Bishop to appoint 
Rev. F. L. Reid, as editor. 

J. T. GiBBS, Chairman. 

B. F. Dixon, Secretary.

REPORT OF THE COMMITTEE ON DISTRICT CONFERENCE 

RECORDS. 

Your Committee on Examination of District Conference Records beg leave 
to submit the following report ; 

Raleigh District — Not only faultless, but elegant. 

Greensboro District — Correct, and deserving special mention as a model 
of neatness. 

Salisbury District — Correa and well kept. 

Warrenton District — Has everything properly recorded. 

Charlotte District — Are correct. 

Washington District — Correctly and neatly kept. 

Mount Airy — The records are neatly kept, but there seems to be an over- 
sight about the roll, the names of all persons belonging to the Conference are 
appended, but mention is not made in the body of the minutes, showing who 
were present. 

Trinity College — Neatly and correctly kept. 

New Berne District — The records are correctly and neatly kept. 

Statesville District — A model of neatness and accuracy. 

Durham District — Correctly and neatly kept. 

Fayetteville District — The records are well kept. There are two slight 
criticisms we deem it our duty to make. First, there is no mention made of 
the clerical and lay delegates present. Second, there is no mention made of the 
election of an Assistant Secretary, although we find the name of one appended 
to the proceedings. 

The records of Wilmington and Shelby Districts were not placed in our 
hands. Respectfully submitted, 

L. I^. Nash, Chairman. 



58 NORTH CAROLINA ANNUAL CONFERENCE. 

[Document No. 6.] 
REPORT OF COMMITTEE ON BIBLE CAUiiE. 

Your Committee on the Bible Cause beg leave to submit the following report: 

The Bible is the revealed will of God. Without it the sons of men could 
not know God. The wisest Pagan philosophers were shrouded in darkness, 
gloom and doubt. The attributes of the Divine Being were unknown to them. 
They knew nothing of His unity, for they had numerous Gods. The Greeks 
had 30,000, and the Hindoos 330,000,000 gods. They were ignorant of His 
omnipresence, hence had a deity for every country, city, town, hamlet, river, 
fountain and grove. Nor did they have any knowledge of His holiness, for to 
their gods they attributed all manner of vice and impurity. Nor could man 
discover his origin or destiny without the Bible. The Word of God is a light, 
discovering to man his condition, and pointing him the way out of the darkness 
and misery of superstition, iniquity and sin, revealing to him the God of the 
universe, setting forth His power and wisdom. His omnipresence and infinite 
love, man's depravity and Jehovah's all-embracing remedy. Too much impor- 
tance cannot be attached to the study of this Word. He who will candidly, 
perseveringly study the word of the Lord, will become so impressed with the 
character of its author that He will accept him as a persona] Savior. Inspiration 
hath said : " My word shall not return unto me void, but it shall accomplish 
that which I please, and it shall prosper in the thing whereto I sent it ;" 
therefore. 

Resolved, \st. That we are pleased with the great and earnest work of the 
American Bible Society, and that we do continue our endorsement of, and 
sympathy in it, requesting our people to make contributions to aid in sending 
the Bible to the destitute of the land. 

Resolved 2d, That we strive to get our people as a whole to read and study 
the Scriptures, and our young people to memorize many of those texts con- 
taining the rich promises of our Father. 

N. E. CoLTK.ANE, Chairman. 

M, M. McFarland, Secretary. 



[Document No. 7.] 
REPORT OF COMMITTEE ON CHURCH PROPERTY. 

Your committee on Church Property report as follows: 

There is a notable improvement in the construction of a large number of new^ 
churches, as to comfort and architectural expression. A number of the new 
churches completed this year and in process of erection, are creditable to the 
generosity of our people and an indication of the material progress of Method- 
ism in North Carolina. The time has come in the history of our church, when 
it is necessary that we should have in our cities and larger towns, rooms espe- 
cially equipped and furnished, in order to insure the largest measure of success 
in the Sunday-school work. 



JOURNAL OF PROCEEDINGS. 59 

There is also a. grow ing need for suitable parsonages on many of our stations, 
circuits and districts. 

There has been some activity this year in securing and perfecting good titles 
to the property owned by the church, but there are still some titles unperfected. 

In many localities the attendance upon the administration of the word, and 
the successful operation of the Sunday Schools, are materially hindered by a 
lack of suitable heating arrangements in the churches. 

Your committee, therefore, recommend: 

1st. That building committees, whenever practicable, adopt the modern and 
improved style of church building recommended by our parent Board of Church 
Extension, holding in view the advantages to be derived from having separate 
apartments for the Sunday School work. 

2d. That earnest efforts be made during the coming year by preachers 
assigned to charges where there are none, to procure the erection of suitable 
dwellings, and that care be displayed in the location of the same. 

3d. That the Presiding Elders of the respective districts of our Conference 
be earnestly enjoined to require of every Board of Trustees in their districts, 
written reports as to the titles and condition of the church property, real and 
personal, under their control, and that as far as possible, every defect as to 
titles be corrected; that attention be paid to the condition of church buildings 
and parsonages needing repairs, and that when practicable, insurance against 
fire be effected. 

4th. That more atteniion be paid to the comfort, in winter, of those who 
attend church and Sunday School; that our churches be used solely in the ser- 
vice of God, and that the promiscuous and indifferent uses made of God's house 
of worship be condemned by this Conference. 

5th. That the preachers in charge of every church, urge the official members 
to see to it that chewing tobacco in God's house and spitting' on the floor, be 
forever prohibited. Respectfully submitted, 

E. Pope, Chairfnan. 



[Document No. 8.] 
REPORT OF COMMITTEE ON TEMPERANCE. 

The position of our church on the subject of temperance has been clearly 
defined by historical statement and statutory enactment, demonstrating that we 
have always occupied a line strictly marked out by gospel precept and example. 
According to the laws of our church, no member can use alcohol, as a beverage, 
without guilt of " improper conduct," which, if persisted in, must be regarded 
"immorality," and no member can make or sell alcohol as a beverage and not 
be guilty of immorality. Therefore, the making, selling, or use of ardent 
spirits as a beverage, can only exist in any portion of our church through defi- 



6o NORTH CAROLINA ANNUAL CONFERENCE. 

ance of church law, on the part of the offender, or dereliction of duty, on the 
part of the pastor. The only resolution or law, we believe, to be needed by us 
as a church on the subject, is a fixed resolve to faithfully observe and execute 
what we now have in our book of discipline. We recognize drunkard-making 
and drunkenness as the great appalling and mammoth evil of our land, to 
which every Christian must faithfully maintain an unyielding antagonism; and 
temperance is an essential " fruit of the Spirit," found in every true Christian 
life; therefore, 

Resolved, That our pastors and people are earnestly urged to see that our 
church laws against intemperance are faithfully observed. 

J. E. Mann, Chairman. 



[Document No. 9.] 
REPORT OF SUNDAY-SCHOOL BOARD. 

Your Sunday-school Board beg leave to submit the following report : 
^^ During the past year there has been a decided quickening in the Sunday- 
school work within the bounds of the North Carolina Conference. Confer- 
ences have been held in every District, and they have done much toward giv- 
ing a new impulse to this great work. Circuit Conferences have been more 
generally held than heretofore, and " Children's Day " more successfully 
observed. It is gratifying to know that almost all of our schools use the Nash- 
ville publications. We have in our schools 65,816 scholars and teachers. 
^The contributions on " Children's Day" are as follows : 

Raleigh District $ 35 89

We recommend : 

1. That our preachers call the attention of schools needing help to this 
" Children's Day Fund," and make application for aid according to the require- 
ments adopted last Conference. 

2. That District and Circuit Conferences be held whenever practicable. 

3. That every effort be made to supply all of our schools with the Nashville 
literature. 

4. That each pastor pay to the Treasurer of the Conference Board the full 
amount raised on " Children's Day," who shall forward to Nashville the ten 
per cent, to be used by the General Board.

NOTE BY THE SECRETARY. 



The tables are published as handed to me, except that corrections have 
been made as far as possible. There has been unavoidable delay in issu- 
ing the Journal. 

There may be errors in some post-oflfice addresses. ' If so, they are due 
to the failure of many preachers to report change of office. 

CORRECTION. 

The following corrections were sent to the Secretary of the Confer- 
ence: 

Lilesville Circuit — Charlotte District — paid presiding elder, $97.04, and 
preacher in charge, $630.76. 

Enochville Circuit — Salisbury District — paid for Sunday-school litera- 
ture, $26.89. 

Tar River Circuit — Raleigh District — received on profession of faith, 
20; by certificate and otherwise, 8; total gains, 28. Losses by death, 8; 
by removals, 10; by withdrawals, 1; total losses, 19. 

Sta7ily Cfrcj«'^— Salisbury District— paid presiding elder, .$65.10; 
preacher in charge, $409.40. 

Shelby -Sfahon— Shelby District— paid presiding elder, $97.36; preacher 
in charge, $778.94.

JOURNAL OF PROCEEDINGS. IO3 

ANNIVERSARY MEETING— MISSIONARY BOARD. 



At the anniversary meeting of the Missionary Board, held 
at Centenary Church, Saturday evening, December ist, 1888, 
the following reports were submitted: 

REPORT OF THE BOARD OF MISSIONS. 

Owing to the fact that the Board has failed to get the necessary information 
from some of the Presiding Elders and preachers in reference to some of our 
mission fields within our bounds, we cannot, at this hour, make an intelligent 
report. We hope to be able to get the information we need at the next 
meeting of the Board. 

Some of the reports made to the Board are very encouraging. Of these, 
Averasboro, on the Raleigh District, deserves special notice. Supplied by 
Rev. J. F. Butt — which was formed last Conference— wonderful progress 
has been made. A few of the missions will soon become self sustaining works. 
Two have been raised to Circuits this Conference. 

We are also glad to learn that the collections for Domestic and Foreign Mis- 
sions are about $3,500.00 in advance of last year, and we sincerely hope that 
the preachers of our Conference will go to their fields of labor with new zeal 
for this glorious cause, and that our collections next year may excel this. 

P. F. W. Stamey, 
Secretary of Board of Missions.
