Published by Rev. W. C. CARDEN, Secretary. =- 




The Southern Methodist Review. 



Ill" SERIES, 



The Review will be published bimonthly — six times a year — instead of 
quarterly. 

The price has been reduced to $2 per annum. 

A specimen copy will be mailed to any person who will write a letter or card 
saying he wishes to -examine it with a view of subscribing, if pleased. Please 
note the form of application. Specimen numbers are expensive, and cannot be 
afforded to those who are not interested in such a publication. 

It will be edited by the General Book Editor, Dr. W. P. Harrison. 

In the mechanical execution and appearance, it will be equal to any Ameri- 
can or English Review. 

In price, it is cheaper than any similar publication. 

The object is to make an experiment for one year, and test our Methodist 
people with a first-class Review at a low price. It can only be sustained by 
a large list. Let every preacher, and every intelligent layman, send in his sub- 
scription at once; or, if not willing to risk a year's subscription without seeing 
a copy, write for a specimen number.

Official Organ of the Holston Conference, 
M, E« Church, South. 



OFFICE : South West Corner Gay and Church Streets. 

EDITORS :—R. N. Price, J. H. B runner, E. E. Hoss, Frank Richardson, 
W. W. Bays, T. F. Glenn, W. H. Valentine, Ass't Ed. & Manager. 



Published weekly by the Holston Publishing Company, of which the follow- 
ing gentlemen compose the Board of Directors: — John W. Paulett, Esq., Jno. 
E. Chapman, Esq., Prof. T. W. Jordan, Rev. D. Sullins, D. D., Rev. Frank 
Richardson. 



It is the only Southern Methodist Paper -published 
between Lynchburg mid Nashville. 

It is devoted to Earnest Christianty, as embodied in Southern Methodism ; 
but its attitude towards all Protestant denominations is conciliatory. It gives 
religious error as it understands it, NO QUARTER. 

It devotes considerable space and attention to the Educational, Social, and 
Material Interests of our Section. 

While the Paper is connectional, sufficiently so, it is especially Holstonic in 
tone and Matter. 



PRICE, 82 PER YEAR, or $ I FOR 6 MONTHS. 

To Advertisers, it Presents the Following Advantages, 

The Holston Methodist has a wide and fertile territory — extending unbroken 
from New River, Va., to the Georgia line, beyond Chattanooga, Tenn. — cover- 
ing an area of about 400 miles. It circulates among the best people in South- 
west Virginia, East Tennessee and Western North Carolina. 

It is the only paper of the Church it represents, published between Richmond, 
Va. , and Nashville, Tenn. It is, therefore, of peculiar value in reaching a very 
large and thrifty class of people in the sections named above. 

It is read by many of the leading families, the best business men, and the 
most successful farmers of the sections of country in which it circulates. It is 
pre-eminently a family paper. 

It prints no shoddy advertisements, but inserts only such as are of good repute 
and which represent legitimate business. In its columns your name and busi- 
ness would be in good company. 

It is the official organ of the Holston Conference of the Methodist Episcopal 
Church, South, having a membership of nearly fifty thousand.

ALL ORDERS CAREFULLY ATTENDED TO. 



Emory and Henry 



[. Emory and Henry is an old and well-tried Institution. It has edu- 
cated, first and last, in whole or in part, over 5,000 young men. These young 
men are to be found in almost every community of the South and Southwest, 
and we confidently refer to them for the character of our work. 

fl^ffr" 2. While not undertaking to do the work of a University, we yet try to 
give our pupils a sound and thorough drill in the Ancient and Modern Langu- 
ages, Mathematics, and the natural and Moral Sciences. Hereto we are aided 
by good cabinets, apparatus, and libraries. 

5!^° 3. Our location is most Excellent: we are in the Virginia mountains, 
twenty-five miles from the Tennessee line, and 2,100 feet above the Sea. Sick- 
ness is very rare among our pupils, and epidemic or malarial diseases are un- 
known. The surrounding scenery is equal in beauty to any in the country, and 
the society is of the best. 

U£fp 4. Our purpose is to make this, in theory and in fact, a Christian Col- 
lege. A good religious spirit has almost uniformly prevailed from its founda- 
tion down to this date, and hundreds have here been converted. 

i£iP 5. Our terms are liberal. Young men boarding at the College board- 
ing-house can make $175, easily cover all necessary expenses for the year, and 
by entering the messes, for which we have admirable arrangements, they can 
get through on $150.

ASHEVILLE FEMALE COLLEGE. 

To meet the large and growing demand for information in regard to the facili- 
ties furnished at Asheville for the higher education of young ladies the follow- 
ing statement is given. 

Patronage. 

The patronage of the College under the present administration has extended 
to Maine, Massachusetts, Pennsylvania, South Carolina, North Carolina, Flori- 
da, Louisiana, Georgia, Virginia, West Virginia, Kentucky, Tennessee, Mis- 
sissippi, Texas, Arkansas and Indian. Territory. 

This wide extension of patronage is largely due to a growing intelligence on 
the part of parents as to the importance of climate in the education of girls. 
The climate of Asheville has proven beneficial alike to young ladies from the 
extreme Northeast and from the South Atlantic and Gulf States. The weather 
in the fall is superb; in winter it is dry and cold; and in the spring balmy and 
invigorating so that pupils accomplish their work not only without lassitude 
but with a manifest improvement of their physique. It should be noted that 
Asheville is located in the dryest belt east of the great western plains. 
Board of Instruction. 

Rev. James Atkins, Jr., M. A., President. 

Benj. E. Atkins, M. A., Mathematics and Natural Sciences.

Miss Sallie Fisk Weaver, Assistant. 

Miss Sallie C. Omburg, Modern Languages and Art. 

Miss V. Kelley, Instrumental and Vocal Music. 

Instruction in all of the departments is of a high order . The standard of 
scholarship is high and is conscientiously sustained . 

The home life of the College is all that can be reasonably desired. All mat- 
ters of food and exercise are carefully supervised . 
Grounds. 

The College is situated in a beautiful part of the town and is surrounded by 
ten acres of magnificent grove of native oaks . As a place of recreation the 
campus ground is unsurpassed . 

There are in connection wiith the College two large greenhouses to which 
all pupils of Botany, whether regular or special, have free access for observa- 
tion throughout the whole year. This affords a rare opportunity for the acqui- 
sition of clear and practical knowledge in this beautiful science. 

Charges for Term of Five Montlis. 

Board and fuel, $62.50; Collegiate tuition, $ 25; German and French, each, 
$10; Painting in Oil, &c, $15; Instrumental Music, $25; Vocal Music, $25.

?HE HOL&TON ANNUAL. 2$ 

Temperance. — The committee on Temperance submitted 
their report, which was read, amended and adopted. 

See Report "B" 

A communication from the "Woman's Christian Temper- 
ance Union" was read, and referred to our Conference organ 
for publication. 

J. M. McTeer. — The committee of trial in case of J. M. 
McTeer, submitted their report, as follows ; 

The committee to whom was referred the case of John M. McTeer for trial 
on the following charge and specifications, viz: 

Charge — Immoral conduct. 

i. Specification — Drunkenness, on or about the 20th of July, 1886, in the 
city of Knoxville, Tenn. 

2. Specification — Drunkenness, or drinking intoxicating liquors in the town 
of Bristol, on or about the 20th of June, 1886, beg leave to report: 

1. That the evidence before them does not sustain the second specification. 

2, That the evidence before them does sustain the first specification, drunk- 
enness in Knoxville in July, 1886. But the committee recognize the fact that 
drunkenness may be either a habit or simply an act. In the case before us, 
there is no evidence that the accused ever had such habit; but on the contrary, 
that during his life he had been an advocate of temperance and an abstainer 
from the use of spiritous liquors. But it did appear from the evidence that the 
accused, at the time stated, entered a saloon in the city, procured and drank 
two glasses of lager beer, from the effects of which he staggered and fell on the 
street. It was also clear to the committee that the physical condition of the 
accused was then, had been for several months and still is, abnormal j whether 
from paralysis or softening of the brain, was not apparent even to the physicians 
who testified before us, but certainly abnormal, and that the mind of the ac- 
cused is so affected thereby, that it is questionable whether he is always moral- 
ly responsible for all his acts. He did, however, state before the committee, 
that he now sees that he did wrong, and deeply regrets the occurrence, and 
pledges himself that there shall be no recurrance of a like act. Looking then 
at all the circumstances, many of them surely properly designated as mitigating, 
your committee cannot declare the specification sustained in sense of criminali- 
ty in the intention. The charge therefore is not sustained, and we recommend 
that the character of John M. McTeer do now pass. 

E. E. Wiley, Chairman, 
B. W. Fielder, Secretary. 

The character of J. M. McTeer then passed, and on mo- 
tion, he was referred to the committee on Conference Rela- 
tions for the superannuated relation. 

The committee on the Spiritual State of the church, sub- 
mitted their report, which was read and adopted. 
See Report "C"

CONFERENCE REPORTS, 



REPORT NO. I, OF THE BOARD OF CHURCH-EXTENSION. 

The Parent Board of Church- Extension of the Methodist Episcopal Church, 
South, having adopted the following : 

Whereas, The Louisville, the Kentucky, and the Western Virginia Annual 
Conferences have by a united effort secured in cash and solvent notes and sub- 
scriptions which are being promptly paid, and nearly all of which will be col- 
lected during our present fiscal year the sum of $15,000, being an average of 
$5,000 to each Conference, and have thus founded the Kavanaugh Loan Fund, 
and demonstrated the practicability of similar efforts and success in other Con- 
ferences ; therefore be it 

Resolved, That all the other Annual Conferences be and they are hereby in- 
vited and urged to make through their Conference Boards the effort to secure 
within their respective bounds between this time and the 31st of March next at 
least $5,000 each, to be constituted into a separate Loan Fund to be named by 
the Conference and to be turned over to this Board and held and administered 
by it. 

2 That whatever may have been paid by any Conference directly to our Board 
on the Centenary Loan Fund shall be transferred on our books from said Cen- 
tenary Loan Fund to the credit of such Conference as a nucleus for a separate 
Loan fund whenever this Board is officially notified by the Conference of its ac- 
ceptance of this offer. 

On motion, it was ordered that we recommend for the adoption of the Con- 
ference, the following resolution : 

Resolved, That the Holston Annual Conference hereby accepts the proposi- 
tion of the Parent Board of Church-Extension as set forth above, and requests 
the Conference Board to perfect and put in operation a plan for securing at the 
earliest practicable time, at least five thousand dollars for the purposes above 
named. FRANK RICHARDSON, President.

For Secretary Franklin District, Mrs. M. I. Siler, Franklin, N. C. 

The Board of Church-Extension would most earnestly exhort our preachers 
and people to help the good women of the church in the noble work of parson- 
age building. Our whole church has suffered largely because of a lack of 
homes for the preachers . 

We have faith that the future will show a much better state of things in 
this respect than has heretofore existed. 

No cause can fail where the women are organized for its success.

REPORT ON TEMPERANCE. 

The committee on Temperance submit the following report : 

That we hail with pleasure the deep and widening public sentiment against 
the iniquitous liquor traffic. 

We rejoice in the fact that our church has always stood abreast with the fore- 
most in battling against this great evil. We regard this prohibitory movement 
of the people as from God, a harbinger of good, "the sound of a going in the 
tops of the mulberry trees." 

We regard temperance as a fundamental part of the gospel. No minister can 
preach a whole gospel and leave it out. 

We would deprecate the introduction of questions purely political into the 
pulpit ; but temperance is no more a political question than polygamy, theft, or 
murder ; against which the pulpit, by its very commission, is compelled to '-cry 
aloud and spare not," and to suppress which civil laws are enacted. 

In a government like ours, being "of the people, by the people and for the 
people," we cannot if we would, divest ourselves of citizenship, 



THE HOLSTON ANNUAL, 37 



We regard the voters of the land as responsible for the existence and perpet- 
uation of the liquor traffic. For when laws are offensive to the voters, legisla- 
tors change them. It is a burning shame to our patriotism, and religion as 
well, that many of the primary elections in the large cities should be held in sa- 
loons ; that the liquor power influences to a large extent by the two great political 
parties of the country ; that more drunkards are made in Africa and Japan for 
rum shipped by one distillery in the United States, than converts by all the 
missionaries sent there. That nine dollars are spent for strong drink, where 
only two are spent for education and religion. Therefore, 

Resolved 1st. That regarding the liquor traffic as iniquitous, and condemned 
by the word of God, no legislative body, whether Federal, State or municipal, 
has any moral right to authorize its manuracture and sale as a beverage. 

Resolved 2nd. That while we most earnestly oppose the union of church 
and State, as citizens regarding the ballot as the great constitutional defender of 
American homes, we will cast our ballots as we pray, for ihe best interests of 
the Kingdom of Christ, our homes and our common country. 

Resolved yd. That we recognize the great work being done by the Woman's 
Christian Temperance Union, as worthy of all praise and pledge our moral sup- 
port to that organization. 

W. H. BATES, Chairman. 



U cy 

REPORT ON THE SPIRITUAL STATE OF THE CHURCH. 

Your committee on the State of the Church, beg leave to report as follows : 

We note, as occasion for gratitude, that eveiy district and almost every 
charge, in the Conference, has been visited with spiritual refreshenings from the 
presence of the Lord, and from five to six thousand have been converted and 
added to the church. The word of the Lord has had "free course and been 
glorified." Living waters have gone forth from our sanctuaries, carrying life 
and joy to thousands of thirsty souls. These gratifying results have been 
achieved under God, through the joint labors of our traveling and local minis- 
ters, seconded by the prayers and faith of christian men and women. 

The local ministry is still our right arm of power, and should be honored and 
fostered by the church. 

They break the bread of life to many hungry souls, and feed and provide for 
the Lord's family. 

The thousands of young converts brought into the church this year will need 
special pastoral oversight. The shepherd should know his flock. 

The fact was developed in the statements made before the Conference, that 
the holy communion is not regularly administered in some of our charges, even 
where they have ordained ministers. We would stress the importance of giving 
all our people an opportunity to celebrate the death and passion of our Lord 
Jesus Christ, at least once a year ; it will prove a means of grace to them, and 
without it they cannot be said to have a complete gospel, 

In our rejoicing over the victories won for the Redeemer and the enlargement 
of his blessed kingdom, let us remember that new responsibilities, are imposed 
upon us as ministers and laymen. 

In order to hold the vantage ground we will need a double unction from the 
Holy One. And just here we realize how much we have lost in suffering the 
class-meeting — the training school of the church — to decline. 

Many young converts are lost to the church, and lost to heaven, we fear, be- 
cause we no longer have among us the class-leader, the sub-shepherd, who used 
to lead the lambs of the flocks in "green pastures and beside still waters." 



38 THE HOLSTON ANNUAL. 



We offer for adoption the following resolutions : 

1st. That whilst we rejoice in the material prosperity of the church, the multipli- 
cation of churches and parsonages and the increased facilities for the spreading 
of scriptural holiness over the land, we will remember that the great end of 
gospel preaching is the salvation of souls ; and that as messengers — watchmen, 
stewards of the Lord — we will diligently seek for Christ's sheep that are dis- 
persed abroad that they may be saved forever. 

2nd. That we will endeavor to turn all our cares and studies this way, pray- 
ing continually for the assistance of the Holy Spirit, that we may grow stronger 
in our ministry. 

3rd. We will continue faithfully to warn our people against the popular vices 
and worldly amusements of the day. 

T. F. GLENN, Chairman, 

Knoxville, Tenn., Oct. 29, 1S86. 



REPORT OF BOARD OF EDUCATION— Nos. 1 and 2. 

Your Board of Education beg leave to submii the following report : 

The relation of the church to the education of the young is a vital one. The 
cultivation of the mind without a corresponding cultivation of the heart is little 
better, if any, than no education at all. Unsanctified learning is not only a curse 
to its possessor, but makes him a dangerous member of society, 

The church that neglects the education of the young is recreant to the best 
interests of society and guilty of high treason against the purposes for which she 
has been established. She cannot afford to relegate a work so important and 
involving interests so vital to the State or commit it into the hands of irreligious 
and irresponsible individuals. She must, as far as practicable, control the edu- 
cation of her young people, if she would have them develop into intelligent and 
useful manhood and womanhood. 

Methodism in Holston, though poor in the main, has made commendable ef- 
fort to furnish to her sons and daughters the facilities for christian education. 
Seven chartered colleges and a number of high schools stand as monuments of 
her zeal and enterprise. But we deplore the fact that these schools are 
not sustained as they should be. The great mass of our people are either too 
poor, or too indifferent to the cause of christian education, to give to these 
schools the support which their merits, and the importance of the work they do, 
demands ; yet we rejoice and render devout thanksgiving to God for the good 
which these schools under His directing hand have achieved in the past, and 
for that degree of prosperity which they now enjoy. 

Emory and Henry College. — This old and popular institution from whose 
walls hundreds of educated young men have gone forth to adorn the different 
walks of life, still maintains its high standard of excellence. With a full and 
able faculty, at no period in its history was it better prepared to do thorough 
work in all its departments than at present. The present session has opened 
under favorable auspices, ninety-one students having already matriculated, with 
a fair prospect of an increase in the near future. We are gratified to learn that 
the debt with which this school has been embarrassed is in process of liduida- 
tion, and we hope that at no distant day the entire debt will be wiped. out.' We 
think the Board of Trust has been fortunate in securing the services of Dr. E. 
E. Wiley as treasurer and financial agent, and we would commend him and the 
important interest which he represents to the favorable consideration and hearty 
co-operation of our people. We would respectively ask the Board of Trust to 



THE HOLSTON ANNUAL. 39 



consider the propriety of making Bishop R. K. Hargrove a member of their 
body and of appointing him to its chairmanship, made vacant by the death of 
the lamented Judge Campbell. 

Martha Washington College, still holds her proud position among the female 
colleges of the land. She is now under the presidency of that able and experi- 
enced educator, the Rev. D. S. Hearon, A. M. — Drs. Wiley and Buchanan 
having severed their connection with the school. President Hearon has a full 
faculty of experienced and competent teachers, and is well equipped for thor- 
ough work in all the departments of female education. The present session has 
opened well and the prospect for a liberal patronage is flattering. 

The department of music is now full to overflowing. 

We are pleased to note that the charges of this school have been reduced. 
By the sale of northeast college and a small portion of land cut off from the 
campus, the trustees have made a reduction in the debt of about seven thousand 
dollars. We commend Martha Washington to the confidence of our people 
and the public generally, and bespeak from them a generous patronage. 

Sullirts College. — This school, for female learning, is located in the thrifty 
and growing town of Bristol . Rev. D. S. Hearon having resigned the presi- 
dency of Sullin's College, to take charge of Martha Washington, the curators 
elected the Rev. L. L, H. Carlock an honored member of your body, to preside 
over its fortunes. President Carlock brings to this responsible position, cour- 
age, energy and enterprise, and with the assistance of a carefully selected and 
capable faculty, with the blessings of the Great Head of the Church, will be 
able to keep the school up to that high standard of usefulness which it attained 
under its former management. The enrollment to date is one hundred and 
forty-four. Let all the friends of christian education do what they can to sus- 
tain this institution. 

Centenary College. — Located in Cleveland, Tenn., the youngest of our fe- 
male schools, has begun its second session under the most flattering auspices. 
From the report of the Board of Trust, we take the following extract : 

" For this scholastic year to date, one hundred and ten have matriculated, 
fifty-six of whom are boarding in the college ; seventy-five are taking lessons in 
instrumental music and ten in vocal music, while there are twenty- eight in the 
art department." 

A large and handsome new building has been projected to meet the demands 
of a steadily growing patronage. While there is a debt of seven or eight thou- 
sand dollars on the property, with the large and increasing patronage and sol- 
vent subscriptions not yet collected, the Board of Trust represent the school to 
be on a sound financial basis. Much might be said of the importance of this 
institution to the cause of education in the section in which it is located ; of the 
liberality of those who projected it and who have chiefly borne its financial bur- 
dens, and of the zeal and energy of the president and his able faculty, but we 
must forbear. 

Hiwassee College. — We are not insensibie to the noble work which Hiwassee 
College has done for the church and the country. Eighty-one of her students 
have already become active workers in the Christian ministry and her alumni are 
found in every honorable profession and pursuit of life. The biennial catalogue 
contains 102 names of students, representing twelve States in the Union. A 
beautiful additional building for college purposes is now receiving the finishing 
touches of the painter's brush, and is ready for occupation. 

We bespeak for Hiwassee the cordial sympathy and earnest support of our 
people, throughout the limits of the Conference. 

Sweetwater Fe?nale Institute, formerly known as Victoria College, and located 
at Sweetwater, Tenn., has been transferred to the Quarterly Conference of the 
Sweetwater Circuit. A local Board of Trustees have been appointed, and Prof. 



40 THE HOLSTON ANNUAL, 



W. W. Smith has been elected president.. He has associated with him a suf- 
ficient number of excellent teachers to fill every department in the Institute. 
We commend this school to the liberal patronage of the public. 

People's College, — Located at Pikeville, in the beautiful Sequatchie Valley, 
in lower East Tenn., remains under the efficient management of C. C. Fisher, 
A. M. , assisted by a corps of excellent teachers. The past session was one of 
the most prosperous in the history of the school, and the indications are that 
the present session will be an advance on that of last year. It is vitally impor- 
tant to Southern Methodism in that part of our territory where it is located that 
People's College he sustained ; and we would urge upon our people the impor- 
tance of rallying to its support. 

Weaverville College, — Located in the quiet village of Weaverville, N. Ca., is 
still under the efficient direction of the Rev. D. Atkins, A. M. , as its president. 
The teachers in the different departments are worthy and well qualified to do 
thorough work. The school is widening the sphere of its influence, and stead- 
ily growing in popular favor. The catalogue shows a matriculation of 1 20 stu- 
dents last year. The enrollment to date of the present term is ninety. Weaver- 
ville is located in a very important part of our conference territory, and its suc- 
cess involves in a large measure the destiny of Southern Methodism in Western 
North Carolina. 

Asheville Female College. — We are gratified to note the large and growing 
patronage of this popular institution of learning. One hundred and ninety-one 
names were catalogued as students last year. Up to date this year abour one 
hundred and forty. There has been an increase of boarding pupils over last 
year of fifteen per cent. Every department is thought to be in better condition 
than in any former year. The faculty is full and well organized and prepared 
to do efficient work in every department. 

We commend this school to the confidence and cordial support of our people. 

District High Schools. — The board is pleased to learn that High Schools 
have been established in most of our districts, and that they are receiving a lib- 
eral patronage from our people. Let such schools be established wherever it 
may be practicable. 

New Market College Property. — We learn from a paper submitted for our 
examination, that the property of New Market College is now in the possession 
of our people ; and, we recommend, that it be sold and that the proceeds of the 
sale be applied to the erection of a church edifice at New Market, Tenn., for 
the use and benefit of our congregation which worship at that place, as recom- 
mended in the paper referred to above. 

The board would offer the following resolutions : 

Resolved 1st. That we recommend the appointment of Rev. James Atkins 
to the presidency of Asheville Female College. 

Resolved 2nd. That we request the pastors on the different charges to im- 
press upon our people, both from the pulpit and in their pastoral and social vis- 
itations, the importance of affording as far as practicable to their children the 
facilities of christian education, in connection with the various institutions un- 
der our own control. 

J. S. KENNEDY, Chairman. 

L. K. Haynes, Sec. 



REPORT ON SUNDAY SCHOOLS. 

We are glad to know that our Publishing House will soon issue a catalogue 
of books and Sunday-school supplies of all kinds. We are pleased to note the 



THE HOLSTON ANNUAL. 41 



fact that our last General Conference fixed a special day as children's day, on 
which collections are to be raised for the benefit of needy schools ; ninety per 
cent, of funds thus raised will be expended in those schools within our own 
bounds, while ten per cent, will go to the general fund at Nashville. 

In view of these and other facts, we desire to offer the following : 

Resolved 1st. That we express to Dr. Cunnyngham and Bro. Lyons our 
gratitude for their sound judgment and untiring energy in giving us clean, 
wholesome literature. 

Resolved 2nd. That as pastors, we will use every energy possible, to train 
young converts in christian work, by encouraging their labors in our schools. 

E. W. MOORE, Chairman. 

B. W. Fielder, Sec'y. 



REPORT OF DISTRICT CONFERENCE RECORDS. 

The committee on District Conference Records report as follows : 

The minutes of the Jeffersonville District Conference were presented to the 
committee in a mere tablet, bound in such a manner that we could not read all 
the record without destroying the binding of the tablet, which we did not feel 
authorized to do, hence it remains in part, at least a sealed book and will no 
doubt so remain, until the proper authorities secure a suitable book and record 
the minutes as they should be, and not as they are. 

The minutes of the Abingdon District were examined and approved. The 
Morristown record is correct and well executed. The Knoxville has no full roll 
of members. The Franklin has no full roll of members and the mechanical ex- 
ecution of the work is not good, having many erasures and interlineations. The 
Jonesboro record is well kept. The Sequatchie only tolerably well kept- — there 
being mistakes in orthography, grammar and the use of capitals. 

The records of Wyiheville, Marion, Asheville and Chattanooga Districts 
were not before the committee . Respectfully submitted. 

E. B. ROBERTSON, Chaibman. 



REPORT ON BOOKS AND PERIODICALS. 
Your committee on Books and Periodicals beg leave to report the following : 
To emphasize the importance of the general diffusion of a healthful religious 
literature, we would regard at this time as a work of supererogation. The im- 
memorial policy of the Methodist church is so well understood, . that extended 
remarks on that line, would be superfluous, It may not be amiss, however, 
to say that there are peculiar circumstances now encompassing us which make 
it important that we should even quadruple our dilligence in furnishing our peo- 
ple with an abundance of good reading matter. This is the book-making and 
the book-reading age. In our day a man is known not so much by the com- 
pany he keeps, as by the books and papers which he reads. Much of the cur- 
rent literature is positively vicious, of a great deal more it is appropriate to say 
that it is idle, senseless jargon, yet charming still the greedy reader on, till done 
he tries to recollect his thoughts, and nothing finds but dreaming emptiness. 
The imperative is upon us, in self-defense and for Christs sake, we are bound to 
see to it, that our own publications, which are pure, and healthful and helpful, 



42 THE HOLSTON ANNUAL. 



are widely disseminated. Our fathers read the works of Wesley, Fletcher, 
Watson, et id omne genus, and we are impressed with the idea that were the 
deeply pious and thoroughly brainful productions of these grand old masters 
more extensively circulated and read the tone of our common Methodism would 
soon be perceptibly elevated and improved. 

We heartily congratulate all concerned upon the present prosperous condi- 
tion of our Publishing House; the Rubicon has been passed, the house enjoys 
a splendid patronage; its credit is first-class, and with the continued co-opera- 
tion of all our people, the Southern Methodist Publishing House will enter up- 
on a career of unexampled prosperity and usefulness. The venerable book 
agent, Dr. J. B. McFerrin and the magnetic and efficient business manage, Mr. 
L. D. Palmer, are entitled to honorable mention in connection with the hope- 
ful condition of this important instiution. 

The Nashville Christian Advocate , edited by Dr. O. P. Fitzgerald, is a 
strong, bright pure paper. It's circulation now approximates twenty-eight 
thousand, ("28,000,) with other districts to hear from, which we earnestly hope 
will in the near future give it the fifty thousand so pathetically asked for by the 
gifted and cultured editor. 

The bi-monthly Review, edited by Dr. W. P. Harrison, is printed on ex- 
cellent paper, in clear bold type; mechanically it is a gem, and being under the 
control of Dr. Harrison, is the highest possible guarantee of its ability and res- 
pectability. We feel humiliated in view of the insufficient suppoit hitherto ac- 
corded by our church to publications of this character, and most cordially com- 
mend the Review to our ministers and more intelligent and thoughtful laymen. 

Our Sunday School periodicals are simply ne plus ultra, edited by our own 
dear brethren, Cunnyngham and Lyons, they ought by every token to be in all 
Southern Methodist Sunday Schools, and let all the people say, Amen. 

As the recognized organ of our Conference, we cordially commend the 
Holston Methodist to all our people. Recently the mechanical make-up of 
the paper has been greatly improved, and it is now a thing of beauty. The 
editor, Rev. R. N. Price, is one of the most versatile and forceful writers be- 
longing to Southern Methodism, while Mr. W. H. Valentine, as business 
manager, has shown himself to be a workman that needeth not to be ashamed. 
The paper ought to have at least three thousand paying subscribers. The list 
numbers about seventeen hundred. Your committee are of the opinion that the 
great body of our ministers are in hearty sympathy with the Methodist. We 
all realize the indispensable importance of a Conference organ, but by reason 
of the multitudinous purposes for which, by virtue of their positions, the preach- 
ers are required to solicit contributions, they are, in a measure, incapacitated 
for becoming efficient agents for the Holston Methodist. 

B. W. S. Bishop, Chairman. 
John H . Parrott, Secretary. 

ADDENDA TO BOOKS AND PERIODICALS. 

Before another session of our Conference, it is probable that the Church will 
have laid aside the grand old Hymn Book which has taught us in the most beau- 
tiful lyrics, the Being and Perfections of God, the Mediation of Christ, and the 
offices of the Holy Ghost, from which the gospel call has been sung from the 
Atlantic to the Pacific, and from the Ohio to the Gulf, which has furnished 
mournful melody for the penitent and ecstatic rejoicings for the justified; de- 
vout thanksgiving in sacred song for the adopted, and such expressions of the 
inward joy at the Witness of the Spirit in such beautiful rythm as none but 
Charles Wesley ever did command. Songs on Sanctifying Grace which reveal- 
ed to the Church and the world the power of Jesus' blood to cleanse from all 
s j n as no metaphysical argument could reveal it. Even the duties and trials, 
the drudgery of the christian's life are made inviting by Watts' and Wesleys' 



THE HOLSTON ANNUAL. 43 



harps. The gloom of the chamber of death is brightened by christian truth 
sung in solemn elegy, while the songs for social, family and closet worship are 
unrivaled in the world. 

We see this book retired with no little reluctance and devoutly pray that the 
Holy Spirit may direct the Committee on Revisal with all wisdom and grace, 
that the sublime doctrines of the church may be preserved in song and that the 
Hymns of Southern Methodism may always be pointed to as standards of doc- 
trinal truth. B. W. S. Bishop, Chairman.

REPORT OF COMMITTEE ON BIBLE CAUSE. 

Your committee on the Bible Cause submit the following: The reports of 
the preachers, with a few exceptions, show that their collections for this im- 
portant enterprise, have been quite meager. We are glad to note, however, 
that some of them received liberal donations from their people, and other, smaller 
contributions for this cause. We have ascertained that the receipts of the American 
Bible Society, during the fiscal year, as compared with the previous year, have 
fallen off $64,000 and for the corresponding period, the Society fell off in its 
issues 110,000 volumes. While there has been very efficient and thorough 
canvassing by Bible agents within the bounds of our conference, we yet find 
many families and individuals, who are in part or altogether destitute of the 
scriptures. This is a deplorable condition of things, and it ought not so to be. 
It is a divinely inspired declaration that the entrance of God's word giveth light. 

We believe also that the Bible possesses a vitality and a potency of its own, 
altogether independent of the efforts of man. Of the truth of this we have 
abundant evidence in the conversion of numbers of people in our own, and 
even in heathern lands, resulting alone from the reading of God's word. In 
consideration of these things and in view of the fact that there is an urgent de- 
mand for the Bible at home and abroad, we submit the following resolution: 

1. That the preachers be urged to present the claims of the American Bible So- 
ciety to all the congregations in their respective charges, and that they take up 
collections for the same at the earliest opportunity. 

2. That they be requested to encourage, and to heartily co-operate with 
the agents of the American Bible Society who may be prosecuting their labor 
of love within the bounds of their respective fields of labor. 

Respectfully submitted, 

R. W. Pickens, Chairman. 



REPORT OF OMMITTEE ON MEMOIRS. 

William M. Bellamy, was born in Scott county, Va., August 8th, 1847. 
Of his early life we have no knowledge. He was converted, and joined the 
Methodist Episcopal Church, South, in the Autumn of 1863. He was licens- 
ed to exhort Nov. 20th, 1869. His license to preach bears date August 23d, 
1873. Impressed with the thought that he must enter the pastoral work, he 
sought to fit himself for that high vocation by attending Hiwassee College. 
His college life was blameless. His influence among his fellow-students was 
excellent. In the prayer-meetings, and in the revival that blessed the college, 
during his stay there, he was an active and efficient worker. 

He was received on trial into the Holston Conference, October 1878, and ap- 
pointed to Sneedville circuit, where he labored two years. October 24th, 1880, 



44 THE HOLSTON ANNUAL. 



he was ordained Deacon by Bishop McTyeire, and appointed to Rye Cove 
circuit where he also spent two years. He was next employed for two years 
on Bristol circuit. In October 1884, he was ordained Elder by Bishop Keener, 
and appointed to Powells Valley circuit, where he closed his life. 

In the latter part of July, 1886, his family was afflcted with fever. His wife 
was so ill for weeks that he scarcely left her bedside. At last, when he was 
enfeebled by long watching, disease fastened upon him, and he gradually sank 
until death came, on the morning of September 12th, 1886. ' 

Bro. Bellamy was an earnest efficient preacher. His heart was in his work. 
Snow and rain did not keep him from his appointments. Often in weariness 
and pain he held up the standard when others were faint from fatigue. The 
last year of his life was the richest revial season he perhaps ever enjoyed. Near- 
ly two hundred conversions followed his labors. His christian experience was 
rich. He had faith in God, and from that faith he had peace. While on his 
bed of death he experienced the fulfillment of the promises of God. On Satur- 
day the nth, he was informed that his end was probably nigh. He promptly 
responded "thank God, I am ready." He then made arrangements as to his 
earthly business. His mind then fixed itself upon eternal things. Camp-meet- 
ing was in progress at Jonesville camp -ground, three miles from his residence, 
and on Monday of the meeting he had expected to take part in a memorial ser- 
vice. Thinking of this he said "I shall meet Bro. Havely in heaven before his 
funeral sermon is preached." Through the day, Saturday, he was, in his own 
words, "sailing on a sea of glory." On through the night he continued to re- 
joice, and before the light of the Sabbath came he entered the Sabbath of 
heaven. Bro. Bellamy's memory will be cherished by hundreds whom he led 
to Christ. And his flock, among whom he died, will not soon forget his faith- 
ful labors. It was a sore bereavement to his charge, and the tear-dimmed eyes, 
and broken voices around his coffin told how strong was the hold he had upon 
the affections of his people. K. C. Atkins, Chairman.

THE NEW READERS. 



(BUTLER'S SERIES.) 

Attention is directed to the accompanying testimony as to the excellence of 
"The New Readers." 

From the Judges of the Supreme Court of Tennessee. 

Supreme Court, Knoxville, Tenn., Nov. 9th, 1885. 
John W. Paulett, Esq. , Knoxville, Tenn. : 

We acknowledge the receipt of a copy of each of the " New Readers," 
Butler's Series, sent us by yourself. 

We have examined them, and find them so admirably adapted to the pur- 
pose for which they are designed that we take pleasure in giving them our earn- 
est commendation. They are arranged on the normal method, by which all 
education in fact is attained by the child in his earlier years, when following the 
promptings of his nature. He first learns sounds, and to distinguish them, one 
from another; then their meaning, as embodied in the names of things; then 
their qualities, and, in time, what we feel, and think, and do with these things. 
He then goes on to all the nice discriminations of language, that serve to ex- 
press fully all the varied work, life, and thought that finds expression in our 
great and diverse civilization. 

Beginning at Nature's beginning point, step by step these Readers embody 
and illustrate this principle, and do it in accordance with the advanced methods 
of the age. Learning to read in such books is, to the intelligent child, a con- 
tinued series of pleasurable surprises, instead of being repulsive, as by the old 
laborious drill to which we were subjected in our childhood. 

We earnestly commend these books as worthy of the patronage of our 
people. 

JAS. W. DEADERICK, 
Chief Justice Supreme Court of Tennessee. 
THOS. J. FREEMAN, 
P. TURNEY, 
W. F. COOPER, 
Associate Judges Supreme Court of Tenn. 

From Hon. B. L.Taylor. 

{Elected Governor in November, 1886.) 

Knoxville, Tenn., June 4, 1886. 
Mr. John W. Paulett : 

Dear Sir: — Accept my thanks for the baautiful Readers sent me, and for 
a copy of " Butler's Pictorial History of the United States," I heartily recom- 
mend these books as superior to all others I have seen. The mechanical work 
of Butler's Readers is superb, and the reading matter is all that could be desir- 
ed. I am sure that you have the thanks of the teachers and children, who are 
so fortunate as to be using these Readers. The child can hardly help learning 
who has such books in his hands. 

I find Butler's Pictorial History a well-written and impartial book, and 
worthy of being taught in all the schools. 

Very Respectfully, 

ROBERT L. TAYLOR, 

U. S. Pension Agent.
