24 THE HOLSTON ANNUAL 

CONFERENCES. 

2^he General Conference, our law-making body, wliich meets every four 
years, shall be composed of one clerical member for every forty-eight mem- 
bers of each Annual Conference, and an equal number of lay members. The 
clerical representatives shall be elected by clerical members of the Annual 
Conference, and the lay representatives by lay members. 

l^he Annual Conference is composed of all the traveling preachers in full 
connection with it, and four lay representatives from each presiding elder's 
district. The lay members are elected by the laymen of each District Con- 
ference. Such members must be twenty-five years of age, and they must 
have been members of the Churcb for six years. 

The District Conference shall be composed of all the preachers, travel- 
ing and local, of the district, the recording stewards of the same, and of 
laymen, the number of w'hom, and manner of appointment, each Annual 
Conference may decide for itself. In compliance with this provision, the 
Holston Conference, in session at Abingdon, Va., in 1879, fixed the ratio 
at one delegate for every eighty laymen, to be elected by the Quarterly Con- 
ference of the several pastoral charges embraced in the said district ; pro- 
vided, that no charge shall be entitled to more than eight, nor denied a less 
number than four, delegates. The District Conference meets annually. 

The Quarterly Conference shall be composed of all the traveling and 
local preachere, including superannuated preachers residing within the circuit 
or station (whether without or within the limits of the Annual Conference 
to which they belong), with the exhorters, stewards, trustees who are mem- 
bers of the Cburch, and class-leaders, of the respective circuits, stations, and 
missions, together with superintendents of Sunday-schools who are members 
of the Church, secretaries of Church Conferences, presidents of Senior 
Epworth Leagues, if eligible, and none others. 

The Church Conference consists of all the members of a particular 
charge, or class, with resident members of the Annual Conference. It should 
meet once a month on stations, once a quarter on circuits.

Resolved, first, That we recommend to the Boards having charge of the 
benevolences, namely, the Board of Missions, the Board of Church Exten- 
sion, the Board of Education, the Bible Board and the Joint Boards of 
Finance, that they co-operate with each other in publishing a leaflet setting 
forth in brief but clear form the needs and imperative demands of these 
various causes.

appropriate at this session of Holston Conference, sums sufficient to secure 
the publication of a sufficient number of said tracts to furnish through our

Church, South: 

Dear Sir and Brethren' — It is now two years since I met you in 'Con- 
ference session. What a great privation ! But it is only one privation 
among many. I am still dragging my weary self along, and most of the 
time drag very heavily. I have reached the point where my "strength is 
labor ami sorrow." It will soon be cut off and I will fly away. I would 
like to see how our own new Bishop Hoss presides, but, of course, he will 
do it as he has done everything else that he has put his hand to — well. Would 
like to attend the Memorial Service, but, alas, I cannot. Some of the vet- 
erans have passed away. Peace to their ashes and rest to thir souls. God 
bless their loved ones left behind. 

In much love I am yours, Wm. Robesow. 



THE HOLSTON ANNUAL 33 

Birmingham, Aia., Oct. 3, 1903. 
2'(> the Bishop and Memiers of the Holston Conference, M. E. Church, 
South : 

Dear Brethren — As the time of your Annual session approached I have 
desired to be with you at Morristown where I met some of you in 1871 with 
Bishop Pierce, and again in 1880 with Bishop McTyene, but my circum- 
stances forbid me this pleasure. 

iSince I was admitted on trial in the Alabama Conference in 1852 I 
have known every Bishop of our Church and have enjoyed the personal 
friendship of most of them. I have been a member of four of our Annual 
Conferences and have seen the names of many of my pupils enrolled in the 
Conferences from Holston to California. When I was admitted on trial 
the salary of a traveling preacher was one hundred dollars and I expected 
to receive no more than that till my reward in Heaven. I cannot but feel 
a deep interest in the spread of that work to which I have given so many 
years. 

At the time of your last session I was just recovering from an illness 
which brought me near the gates of death, but afterward I was able to con- 
tinue my work in the College till the close of the school year. It was then 
decided by the Board of Trustees that I had better retire from active work. 
I have not felt able to preach often since my illness but have done some 
writing and other work in the interest of religion. Praying the Divine 
blessing upon your present session, I am your fellow-servant in Christ, 

F. M. Gbace.

54 THE HOLSTON ANNUAL 



CONKKRENCE RKPORTS. 



JOINT BOARD OF FINANCE. 
No. 1. 

Whereas, Various well-disposed persons, in times past, have donated 
sums of money to m'ake a perpetual fund, the annual interest of whicli was 
to be used in the support of superannuated preachers and the widows and 
minor children of deceased miuistei's of the Holston Annual Conference, 
and from a negilect of the employment of proper business methods a 
large part of such domations has unfortunately been lost; thei-efore. 

Resolved — 1. That a committee of three persons, one layman and 
two ministers, be nominated by the presiding bishop and elected by the 
Conference, whose duty shall be to look after all funds donated heretofore, 
now on hands, or that may be hereafter donated for the benefit of the 
worn-out preachers, widows and orphans, and, where it can be legally done, 
to take charge of such funds and loan the same as hereinafter directed, 
and at each annual session of the Holston Conference will report in 
writing to the Joint Board of Finance the amout of said fund, to vrhom 
loaned, and how secured. 

2. It shall be the duty of s'aid three trustees to loan said funds at 
six per cent, interest, payable annually, or invest the same in six per cent, 
first mortgage bonds, when it can be done, and when invested in bonds 
the same must be first mortgage bonds bearing six per cent, interest and 
based on realty of twice the value of the bonds so purchased; or if the 
bonds so purchased are a part of a series of bonds issued, then the whole 
series of bonds must rest upon realty of twice their value. But if said 
funds can not be invested in such bond®, then said ti'ustees may loan said 
funds on personal security, taking notes payable to themselves as trustees, 
and not less than two solvent securities must be taken to each note, and 
each security must be of undoubted solvency in double the amount of the 
note so secured. Ajiy note thus taken, or any bonds purchased, will be 
kept by said trustees as a special deposit in a fire-proof safe or vault of 
some banking or trust company, to be selected by said trustees. 

3. The ti-ustees of the Wall fund, under the will containing the 
bequest in favor of the superannuates and widows and orphans of our 
deceased ministers, are hereby requested to have said bequest collected 
and invested in first mortgage bonds, as hereinbefore set forth ; or, if 
agreeable to them, and they can lawfully do so, to collect said funds and 
turn them over to the trustees elected by the Holston Annual Conference, 
to be loaned out or invested by them as hereinbefore indicated. 

4. Hereafter it shall be the dutj' of the Joint Board of Finance during 
each annual session of the Conference to report to that body the amounts 
of the several funds, how invested, or if loaned, the character of the se- 
curity, as to extent and solvency. 

5. That our Church papers, pastors and presiding elders keep it 
before our people that all bequests made to aid in the support of our 
superannuates and the w^idows and Children of our deceased ministers, 
should be made to the trustees elected by this Conference to control 
such funds.

No. 2. 

Witli profound' gratitude to God we note the progress of the work of 
securing the Superannuate Endowment Fund. In a little more tlian ono 
year one hundred and sixty thousand dollars h'ave been secured in notes

A. F. Watkins, and pledge to him our heartiest sympathy and co-operation 
in the great work assigned him. We recommend that attention be called 
to the Superannuate Endowment Fund by the presiding elders in the quar- 
terly meetings and District Conferences; be it also 

Resolved, That our pastors be instructed to take a collection in each 
congregation within their pastoral charges during the month of December, 
1903; after presenting this cause on its own merits.

SUNDAY SCHOOL BOARD. 
No. 1. 

During the year past it has been the policy of the Sunday School Board 
to push its work along the following lines : A better and more universal 
observance of Children's Day, the organization of every Sunday School into 
a missionary society, and the systematic prosecution of the work of the Bible 
Teacliers' Study Circle. While the work Tias not been a failure along any 
one of these lines, there has not been that large measure of success which 
we had desired, and which we had good reason to expect. 

It is much to be regretted that in many cases Children's Day is wTioIly 
KGglected, in other cases little preparation is made for it, and in still others 
its importance is minified by holding it at the ^Sunday school hour, or in 
the Sunday school room and having the regular preaching at the morning 
liour. This Board considers this of enough importance to give the whole 
Sunday morning preaching hour to the Children's Day service. 

One teacher in the Holston Conference has completed the two courses. 
Two preachers have completed the first year's course. And besides these 
seventeen other teachers have completed the first year's course. Quite a 
number of cricles are organized and now rest in state of suspended animation, 
and it is the earnest desire of the Board that the prachers see to it these be 
revived, and carry on their work to a successful completion. 

The Board is wholly dei^endent upon the pastors of the respective 
diarges for the success of this work. To them we now make our most 
earnest appeal, that every pastor will get the books, read them carefully, 
then organize, or reorganize the circle, and help the leader to carry it on. 

John C. Orb, Chairman. 

No. 2. 

Your Sunday School Board find that there is a healthy interest in 
Sunday School work throughout the Conference. There are 689 schools, 
4,792 ofljcers and teachers and an enrollment of 51,160 scholars; 4,266 



THE HOLSTON ANNUAL 57 

increase ; $44.79 have been reported to the statistical secretary that has not 
been reported to the treasurer. We offer the following resolutions : 

1. That all our Sunday Schools give the fifth Sunday collections to 
the Greeneville Orphanage. 

2. That all our Sunday Schools be organized into missionary societies 
according to the Discipline, and that the collection one Sunday in each 
month be given to missions. 

3. That we commend more and more "The Bible Teachers' Study 
Circle." We ask with more earnestness than heretofore that all our preach- 
ers get the books and read them, and thus put themselves in position properly 
to commend the work to the superintendents and teachers. 

4. That we will carefully and diligently observe Children's Day. 

5. That we observe Decision Day at least once a year in our Sunday 
Schools wherever it can be done. 

6. That we recognize the high grade of Sunday School literature 
furnished by our Publishing House, and urge that it be used by all ojir 
schools. JoHis^ C. Orb, Chairman.

BIBLE BOARD. 
No. 1. 



The American Bible Society continues to have a conspicuous stare in 
the benevolent and missionary activities of this and other lands. An increas- 
ing demand comes from foreign sliores, and to these appeals they are listening 
and giving help to the very best of their ability. More than one-half of the 
issues of this society go in various tongues to supply the needs and desires 
of the destitute on distant shores. The issues during the past year have 
been nearly two millions, counting Bibles, Testaments and portions. This 
is the largest issue in the history of the society. The increase over last 
year being 269,767. Of these, 734,649 were distributed in the United States, 
an increase of 47,894 ; and 1,258,909 in foreign fields, an increase of 
221,873. Of these 993,454 were from the Bible House in New York and 
1,000,104 from the society's agencies abroad, being printed on mission 
presses in China, Japan, Siam, Syria and Turkey. 

There has been a falling off in receipts of $73,000, caused by a decrease 
in gifts, legacies and receipts from auxiliary societies. To supply this 
deficit we urge increased contributions from churches. 

The Bible Society Record, the organ of the society, keeps members and 
friends posted as to the work of the society and we commend it to all who 
desire to be well posted on this work. In addition the society publishes 



58 THE HOLSTON ANNUAL 

about seventy- five leaflets bearing on various phases of the work which it 
distributes in reasonable quantities gratis to those applying for them. 

The society employs six field agents, covering the United States, of 
whom our own George D. French is one, with Kentucky, Tennessee, Missis- 
sippi and Louisiana as his field. They also employ one colored man to labor 
especially with his own people. In addition to these there are twelve foreign 
agencies employing 440 persons in the distribution of the Bible. Thus we 
see somewhat of the extent of this great work. 

The British and Foreign Bible Society has set apart March 6, 1904, as 
the centennial anniversary of the organization of their society, and request 
that all Protestant Churches in the world observe that day as Bible Day. 
Therefore, 

Resolved, first. That we observe March 6, 1904, as Bible Day, and hold 
on that day special services looking to the interests of the Bible and its 
increased distribution. 

Resolved, second, That we assess $900 for the American Bible Society 
and distribute the same as follows : Radford District, $100 ; Wytheville 
District, $100; Big Stone Gap District, $60; Knoxville District, $110; 
Chattanooga District, $100; Tazewell District, $100; Abingdon District, 
$305; Morristown District, $95; Cleveland District, $80; Spring City Dis- 
trict, $50. , J. W. Cabwes, Chairman.

D. 

SPIRITUAL STATE OF THE CHURCH. 

We have heard the verbal reports of the Presiding Elders, and note 
with pleasure the progress that has been made during the year. There have 
been more than six thousand professions of conversion, and over three thou- 
sand added to the church. To your committee this is cause for joy. It will 
be a sad day for our Church, if the revival fires are ever allowed to go out. 

Another sign of spiritual growth is, the building and repairing of 
churches and parsonages, and an increase in ministerial support. There is 
a growing desire among our people to pay in full all the collections ordered 
by the Conference. But while we rejoice in all this, we do feel that there 
should be an increase in the number of family altars, and prayer meetings, 
and in attendance on all the social and business meetings of the Church. 

J. S. W. Neel, Chairman. 



E. 

EPWORTH LEAGUE BOARD. 

Possibly the pastors and League officials have not engaged their atten- 
tion and time as much to the interests of this branch of the work as they 
might have done. At any rate we are forced to report a falling off in the 
number of Senior Chapters ; while this is painful we are gratified to report 



THE HOLSTON ANNUAL 59 

an increase in the number of Junior Chapters and the amount of money 
raised by the Leagues for the extension of our Lord's kingdom. Pastors' 
reports show the following: Senior Leagues, 110; decrease, 11. Junior 
Leagues, 70 ; increase, 3. League members, 6,1G4 ; decrease, 572. Money 
raised for missions, $1,476.93 ; money raised for other objects, $2,041.60 ; 
total, $3,518.53 ; increase $201. We believe this shows a growtli both in 
Interest and usefulness. 

The League Conference at Grace Church, Bluefield, W. Va., last June 
was. doubtless, the best we have ever had and this board heartily recom- 
mends the continuance of it, and earnestly solicits the hearty co-operation 
of every pastor and layman in the bounds of Holston. 

Special attention is directed to the League Reading Course prescribed 
by the General Board ; also to the institute department, conducted by Rev. 
n. W. Featherstone, in the Epworih Era. In this connection the Epworth 
Era, edited by H. M. DuBose, D. D., is cheerfully endorsed and recommended. 
We suggest that the League District Secretaries hold an annual District 
League meeting and to that end this Board pledges its assistance anywhere 
and everywhere when called upon. 

E. A. Shugakt, Pres't. 

B. A. Marks. Sec'y. 



F. 

TEMPERANCE. 



Your committee on temperance believe that we as a Conference have 
more reason for joy and encouragement than ever before in our great work. 
The changed attitude of that bold, great power, the secular press, we take 
as an omen of complete and permanent victory over saloons. 

The action of the late State Legislature, which has relieved so many of 
our towns of the saloon curse, we believe to be the result of the harmony 
of purpose and effort of all denominations and good men in this section, and 
also that this victory is an indication of the final overthrow of saloons and 
kindred evils. 

While we rejoice in the success of the Gospel in all lands and especially 
in our mission fields, we deeply deplore the fact that an American saloon 
goes with every missionary to every foreign field. We, therefore, recom- 
mend : 

First — ^That every minister and layman of the M. E. Church, South, 
use all lawful means, both by private work and public utterance, to enforce 
and extend the Adams law. 

Second — That we do all possible to influence our national legislators to 
give us legislation, to prevent the exportation of strong drink into our re- 
cently acquired territory. 

Third — ^That we be diligent in the use of all legitimate means to secure 
the passage by the United States Senate and Congress of the Hepburn bill. 

A. D. Reynolds, Chairman. 

Feank Jackson, Secretary. 



BOARD OF EDUCATION. 

No. 1. 

Your Board of Education, viewing its duties in the light of the constitu- 
tion adopted for its guidance one year ago, earnestly desires to promote the 
Christian education of all our young people and children through exerting 



60 THE HOLSTON ANNUAL 

its influence to improve our homes, local churches, and schools as institutions 
of Christian nurture, education and culture. 

In accordance with this purpose, the first work of the Board during the 
Conference year now closing was to elicit information concerning the state 
of these three classes of institutions throughout the Conference and to pro- 
voke discussion of those features of their life and organization deemed essen- 
tial to the realization of fheir teaching power and influence. The answers 
given to questions asked were not given or regarded as absolutely correct, 
but as closely approximating the truth. From these answers we conclude 
that about one in seven of our homes have family altars, wTiile scarcely so 
laany have anything like an adequate supply of Christian literature. The 
showing as regards instruction of the children in the Bible and their training 
to habits of prayer, however, was much more encouraging, including about 
fifty per centum of the entire number of families. About one hundred and 
fifty of our eight hundred and twenty-two local churches were without Sun- 
day schools during any part of the year, while about seven hundred had no 
Senior Leagues, and at least seven hundred and fifty were without a Junior 
League. All these facts were quite disquieting to us, and the discussions 
which followed their presentation were intended to beget earnest effort upon 
the part of pastors r.o erect family altars, circulate Christian literature, 
secure systematic instruction of the children in the borne, increase the number 
and efficiency of our Sunday schools, Epworth Leagues — Senior and Junior — 
and do whatever else might be deemed practicable in securing an ideal organ- 
ization of the home and church for purposes of Christian education. 

Before passing to a special notice of our schools in the light of the most 
recent reports that we have had from them, we wish to record it as our pro- 
found and abiding conviction that no broad, wise, and powerful educational 
revival can come until we have awakened in the home a sense of the just 
measure and great weight of obligation that rests upon it to begin and 
continue througli the whole length of the human life a work of Christian 
education, and have likewise aroused each local church to a sense of its 
responsibility as an educator of its membership and the community in which 
it t-itands and of its need of realizing in its organization and life all those 
minor organizations provided for in our Book of Discipline as essential to the 
exercise of its teaching functions. 

We would further record, as a conviction no less deep and abiding, that, 
if our people ever furnish to the schools the quality of material necessary 
to the production of the highest tj-pe of Christian manbood and womanhood, 
it must be after we have homes and churches that have recognized and dis- 
cbarged their obligations in the preparation of such material, and that, if 
ever the work that we are attempting to do througb our schools of various 
grades is appreciated by our people to the extent that they will give us all 
needed patronage and money, they must see themselves as co-workers and 
recognize the scbools as an essential class of institutions in a great system 
of Christian education under the supervision of their Church. 

SECONDARY SCHOOLS. 

The secondary schools owned by our Church within tbe bounds of this 
Conference are Princeton Academy, Russell Academy, Jonesville Academy, 
People's College and Pryor Institute. 

Princeton Academy furnishes high school privileges to our people within 
the bounds of Radford and Tazewell Districts, being on the border and about 
equally accessible to each. The school during the Conference year now 
closing has been quite prosperous, owing to the loyal support it has received 
from our people, clerical and lay, of both districts. It is a good property, 
admirably located, deserves, and, we trust, will continue to have, the loyal 
support of tbose whose interests it was built to serve. 

Russell Academy, located at Lebanon, Va., is well patronized, and, if 



THE HOLSTON ANNUAL 61 

properly managed, will continue to thrive and increasingly serve an impor- 
tant and growing section of our Conference. 

Jonesville Academy, located at Jonesville, Va., has been within the past 
two years much improved in buildings and furnishings, and enjoys the bless- 
ings of an enlarged usefulness. 

People's College, located at Pikeville, Tenn., closed a successful session 
in May, but was so unfortunate as to lose quite unexpectedly by resignation 
during the vacation its principal. Prof. Robert Davis. We are pleased to 
note, however, that temporary arrangements have been made for carrying 
on tlie work of the school, and that the trustees are adding to the equipment 
by erecting a new boarding house. 

Pryor Institute, located at Jasper, Tenn., during the past two years has 
suffered a decline. But since the close of its last session, the trustees in co- 
operation with your Board has succeeded in recognizing the school upon a 
now basis, and have been so fortunate as to secure as principal. Prof. W. M. 
Dossett. Your Board has had the pleasure of an interview with Prof. Dos- 
sett, and are much pleased with the spirit and plan of his work. This school 
is heartily commended by us as worthy of the patronage of our people. 

CENTENARY COLLEGE. 

This scTiool, in charge of Rev. J. A. Stubblefield and Dr. David Sullins, 
was reported to us by President Stubblefield as entering upon, in many 
respects, the best year of its history, the enrollment to date being one hundred 
and sixty-three pupils, one hundred and twenty-one of whom are boarding 
pupils. We mention as most gratifjnng facts connected with the report the 
ability of the school through its income to pay, not only the interest on its 
indebtedness, reported as $12,500 last year, but also to begin the work of 
reducing the debt by retiring bonds. 

SULLINS COLLEGE. 

This institution, which, during the past five years, has been under the 
management of Rev. S. N. Barker, and conducted somewhat as a private 
school, through an arrangement effected by Dr. R. G. Waterhouse, Rev. W. 
M. Dyer and Rev. T. R. Handy with the trustees, has become associated in 
management with Emory and Henry and Martha Washington Colleges, and 
has been put on the way, we trust, to thorough adjustment to the other 
schools of the Conference that belong in fee simple to our Church. The new 
session, under all the conditions, has opened very encouragingly, and tlie 
prospect of getting rid of some hurtful and annoying causes of friction in the 
past is now quite encouraging. It may be trufhfully said that no single body 
of Methodist men in our Conference has shown more devotion to the cause 
of Christian education by their donations than have the trustees and friends 
of Sullins College. 

MARTHA WASHINGTON COLLEGE. 

This, the oldest of our female colleges, closed last June the most prosper- 
ous year of its history, the enrollment being 175, of whom 118 were boarding 
pupils. The income of the college during the administration of President 
Dyer has been, not only sufficient to meet the running expenses, but also to 
enable the trustees to add some $10,000 to the value of the buildings and 
equipment. The indebtedness of the institution has been also reduced from 
$22,000 to $16,000, mainly through the liberality of friends living in and 
near Abingdon. The present session gives promise of being equal to, if not 
excelling, the last in the extent of its patronage. 

EMORY AND HENRY COLLEGE. 

This institution shows through its catalogue an enrollment for the past 
session exceeding that of any other during the past thirteen years, and the 



62 THE HOLSTON ANNUAL 

enrollment for the new session lias already nearly equaled that of the past 
year. The report of the treasurer, made in commendable detail and fullness 
to this Board, shows that the earnings and income of the college from all 
sources has enabled the treasury to meet all current expenses, reduce the 
indebtedness some $300. and invest .$3,379.87 in a new building, known as the 
Students' Home. This Conference at its session in Wytheville, Va., one year 
ago had the happiness to hear from one of the ladies of Emory, Va., a state- 
ment of the ideas entertained by the administration of this college touching 
the introduction of borne features and home influence into the dormitory life 
of students. The Conference will be gratified, we think, to know that the 
main wing of this building is now nearly completed and that, in addition to 
elegant rooming accommodations for twenty-four boys, it provides two 
spacious, well lighted, and ta.stefully finished rooms, one of which is to be used 
as a parlor, and the otber for a reading r6om and reference library, thus 
aiTording facilities not hitherto enjoyed for the introduction of said features 
and influence. 

The trustees of this college during their last annual session directed 
their executive committee to present to this Conference a request for permis- 
sion to so change the constitution of the college as to enable them to elect a 
vice-president, and to also present a general scheme of improvements, and 
especially to present in detail and accurate estimate the plans and cost for 
i-enovating the main building and securing a system of water-works. These 
directions said executive committee has not been able fully to carry out, owing 
to reasons which we deem sufficient and satisfactory. But your Board heartily 
endorses the idea, believing that the time lias come when this scheme of im- 
provements can and should be heartily entered upon. We would, therefore, 
recommend that the Executive Committee of your Board co-operate with 
that of the trustees in deciding upon this scheme and in working up these 
details, and that you appoint a committee of eleven pastors to meet with 
these executive committees so soon as the plans and estimates have been 
determined upon by said committees for the purpose of reviewing and endors- 
ing the same after such modification or modifications as they may deem 
proper, and for the further purpose of inaugurating measures through which 
to secure the means for carrying them out. We nominate the following to 
constitute the committee of pastors : .J. A. Burrow, J. T. Frazier, E. H. 
Cassidy, J. W. Perry, R. K. Sutherland, Prank Richardson, J. S. French, 
J. C. Orr, L. L. H. Carlock. J. O. Straley, ,T. I. Cash. We also recommend 
concurrence in the proposed amendment to the constitution providing for the 
election of vice-president. 

Indebtedness — The Twentieth Century Movement, inaugurated in the 
session of the Holston Conference held in this town five years ago, was 
intended to raise a fund that should be applied first of all to paying off 
indebtedness upon the three colleges at that time reported as belonging in fee 
simple to our Clhurch. They were Emory and Henry, Martha Washington, 
and Centenary. The aggregate indebtedness on these institutions as then 
reported was $73,000. It is a matter of sincere regret to us that the money 
coming into our treasury has not been sufficient to pay off this indebtedness 
by nearly $44,000. Nothing hinders growth like lingering debt, and it is 
the worst possible policy to tolerate its continuance. We, therefore, direct 
that the Executive Committee of this Board ascertain as quickly and thor- 
oughly as possible what amount of Twentieth Century notes and subscriptions 
uncollected can still be reasonably relied on to aid in diminishing this amount, 
and, further, to ascertain wbat there is among the resources of the three 
collges named that may be utilized for the same purpose, counting in those 
resources the large local subscriptions almost always i)ossible in communities 
where the colleges are situated, and, after having secured such information, 
it shall be transmitted to the above named committee of pastors, who shall 
decide upon a plan to be put immediately into operation for the complete 
liquidation of the entire indebtedness. 



THE HOLSTON ANNUAL 63 

Accredited School — The Rev. M. P., Carico, a member of your body, 
together with the Presiding Elders and some of the preachers of the Taze- 
well District, was before the Board giving us an account of a training 
school recently inaugurated at Graham, Va., under the principalship of 
Bro. Carico, and offering to the Conference the control of its educational 
policy. We recommend the acceptance of this proposition with the express 
understanding that we assume no financial responsibility. 

Correspondence School — The Board heard with pleasure Prof. J. L. 
Cunningim concerning the plans, ideas, and methods of the Correspondence 
school recently inaugurated by the General Board of Education as directed 
by our last General Conference. We commend this school to all our preach- 
ers and especially to the undergraduates as offering to them most valuable 
instruction, inspiration, and guidance in the mastery of their courses. 

Special Sermons — Dr. J. D. Hammond, secretary of the Greneral Board, 
also favored us by his presence and a statement of the work that Board is 
doing. We recommend the observance of the month of May in all our 
stations as the appropriate time for the series of sermons on Christian 
Education provided for in a program of the General Board, and the monttis 
of July and August for such a series of sermons on all our circuits. 

Appointments — We request the appointment of A. iS. Thorn as prin- 
cipal of Athens Normal School ; J. E. Lowry as president, and J. H. Sum- 
mitt as teacher in Hiwassee College ; W. D. Akers and L. O. Adams as 
teachers in Asbury College ; M. P. Carico as principal of Epworth Institute,

BOARD OF MISSIONS. 
No. I. 

Your Board of Missions returns grateful thanks to Almighty God, that 
gTacious revivals have been Tield in moat of our Mission charges, in which 
there have been a large number of professions of faith in Christ. During 
this year five young men have been licensed to preach in these fields, assur- 
ing us that our labors have not been in vain. 

Our mid-year meeting held at Marion, Va., was a source of inspiration, 
not only to those who were present, but through them, to others witli whom 
they came in contact. The review of the field at such a time makes plain 
the need and furnishes helpful suggestions for use during the remainder 
of the year. We ask the Sunday School Board, Epworth League Board, 
<Jhurch Extension Board, and Board of Education to join us in our next 
meeting. 

Under the change inaugurated by the General Board, the "Go Forward" 
haf* been much enlarged and covers a wider range of topics. It deserves the 
largest possible circulation, and the price, 25 cents per annum, puts it in 
reach of every home, however poor. No Methodist family can afford to be 
without it. We urge our pastors to spend at least one day during tlie com- 
ing year in an effort to increase the subscription list of this most excellent 
paper. 

The Wesley Bicentenary Missionary Movement is assuming large pro- 
portions and promises soon to reach the expectation of its inaugurators. 
The collection taken here on Thursday evening by Bishop Galloway for the 
'C'ongdo Industrial School amounted to $2,500. We commend this enterprice 
to our people, and pledge to the secretaries of our General Board of Mis- 
sions our hearty co-operation in raising the remaining $1,500*, necessary for 
its establishment, within our Conference bounds, and we respectfully suggest 
that it be named the Ephraim E. Wiley Industrial School. 

In addition to over-paying the regular assessments this year. Centenary 
church, Chattanooga, has paid $600 on its special Korean fund and $225 
toward the support of a city missionary. We congratulate them on carrying 
forward their plan so successfully, and express the hope that they will 
continue to do so. 

It is a source of great gratification that for the first time the assessments 
for Foreign and Domestic bave been met without a public collection at the 
Conference session. Two Districts — The Big Stone Gap and Spring City — 
sent to your Treasurer the full amount of their assessments before the time 
of the Annual Conference. We would exhort others to go and do likewise. 

The resignation of Dr. L. L. H. Car lock as President of tlie Board was 
accepted with regret. We record our gratitude to him for his faithful and 
efficient services as an officer of the Board of Missions for twelve years. R. 
A. Kelly was elected President, and W. W. Hicks, Vice-President, of the 
Board. J. S. French was elected a member of the Board. 

The following change in our By-Laws was adopted : By-law 6 was 
amended so as to read : "The Board shall not appropriate at its annual 



66 THE HOLSTON ANNUAL 

meeting more than ninety (90) per cent, of the collection for Domestic 
Missions during the year ended, so that a sufficient reserve may be kept 
on hand to pay early drafts, the expenses of the Board, and to meet emer- 
gencies." The following By-laws were added : 

"10. The Secretary of the Board shall issue drafts for the salaries of 
the Missionaries in its employ quarterly, payable Jan. 15, April 15, July 15, 
and on the first day of the session of the Annual Conference. Provided, that 
no draft shall be issued to pay the salary of a missionary until he has sent 
a report of his work for the quarter to the secretary, which report is to be 
made on blanks furnished by the Board. 

"11. The Treasurer of the Board shall pay out funds for Domestic 
Missions only on drafts signed by the Secretary and endorsed by the payee, 
except for his expenses as Treasurer." 

The General Board has apportioned $11,000 to be raised in our Confer- 
ence for Foreign Missions. We ask for $8,000 for Domestic Missions, which 
sr.ms are apportioned to the several Districts as follows : 

Foreign. Domestic. 

1. Radford $1,250 $ 890 

2. Tazew'ill 1,150 890

BOOKS AND PERIODICALS. 

Your committee on books and periodicals takes just pride and great 
pleasure in the advanced strides made by our Church in this important 
interest, which we find is steadily on the increase. With its founder a 
scholar, author and lover of books, the Methodist Church cannot afford to 
do less than follow his illustrious example and teaching in this respect, 
especially in this year of celebration of his birth. The itinerant Methodist 
preacher was always ahead of the schoolmaster, and in many sparse settle- 
ments the only opportunity the hungry country lad had to get a book to 
read was at his hands, and most nobly has that band of immortals diffused 
the light of good literature in all the dark places, and laid the foundations 
deep and strong in the hearts of our people of love of good books. 

In a country where the banner of Christianity was first planted east 
of the Alleghanies. and the most stirring chapters of history wrought out, 
what soul in it hv\ should be stirred at a record of the contests and con- 
quests of such a people, and eager to know all about such a history where 
Asbury and King's Mountain are twin names and household words. Let 
our ministers and laymen urge on our people to intimate acquaintance with 
these facts contained in our Church literature, which for thought, piety, and 
literary excellence is unsurpassed anywhere in the world, and is full of 
dramatic interest and pathetic incidents. 

Our central publications, viz. : the Nashville Christian Advocate, Metho- 
dist Quarterly Review, Sunday School Magazine, The Visitor, Epworth Era, 
Go Fotward, Our Homes and The Woman's Missionary Advocate, are all 
of the highest order of merit and worthy of a place in every home. ■ 

The exhibit of the book agents of the Publishing House heretofore pre- 
sented to this Conference and referred to your committee, we are pleased to 
report, shows a gratifying condition of that institution, for which we should 
all feel grateful. 

Your committee further show that our own Midland Methodist reports 
a net gain in subscribers of nearly fourteen hundred (140O) during the past 
year, being the most prosperous year in its history ; that the Rev. J. A. Bur- 
row has been re-elected as its editor for the ensuing year, and we recommend 
the continuance of the Revs. Eugene Blake, J. W. Perry and Z. T. Godwin 
as the publication committee for that periodical for the ensuing year on the 
part of this Conference. To the ministry and laity of our Church is com- 
mitted the great responsibility of extending the circulation, and reading of 
ttiese periodicals and of our literature and inspiring a thirst for learning 
among the people ; they are fully abreast of the age and the education and 
duty of the Church member is incomplete without them. 

Your committee desires to endorse in the strongest terms the high order 
of reading provided for our people in those excellent books of the "Epworth 
Reading Course," and "The Bible Teacher's Study Circle Courses." "With 
so much of vicious literature offensively obtruding itself on every hand, it 
is refreshing to see anything so wholesome and instructive as these admirable 
books, and it is with pleasure we report that they are read with avidity, and 
the demand for them on the increase. We hail this as a healthy omen. 

In this day of many books your committee must be permitted to single 
out one that in an unusual manner commends itself to the people of this 
"hill country" and their descendants wherever found. We refer to the great 
book on the "History of Holston Methodism," by Dr. R. N. Price, the first 
volume of which is just out. It is a wonderful book and should be read by 
every patriot, and should be in every home. We endorse it most heartily, 
and cordially recommend its purchase and perusal by all.

BOA.RD OF CHURCH EXTENSION. 

No. 1. 

Your Board is glad to be able to report an advance along all lines of 
its work. There has been a great revival of church building throughout our 
bounds. The collections amount in the aggregate to the largest contribution 
the Conference has ever made to the cause, an excess over last year of $425. 
Your Board was asked to appropriate $2,500 and had the entire assessment 
been paid would have been able to have given every cent asked for. We 
believe a better day is dawning for this department of work. The Church 
is awaking to the fact that the work of Church Extension is antecedent and 
fundamental to missions. We believe that no missionary movement can suc- 
ceed without the work of the Board having first been done, vsfhether done 
through this Board or the Board of Missions. 

The requests of this Board are most reasonable. Our watchword for 
this quadrennium is : '^Church Extension assessment in full." To this end 
we ask the co-operation of the pastors in the following particulars : We 
request, first that one Sunday in the year be called "Church Extension 
Sunday" and be appropriately observed in all our Sunday schools, and the 
Board undertakes to furnish through its secretary all the literature needed 
for the proper observance of that day. We request, second, in view of the 
fact that Church Extension is a mission vs^ork, that no surplus be reported 
on missions from any charge until the Church Extension assessment on 
that charge is paid in full. 

We are assessed by the Parent Board $4,250, which is apportioned on 
the same basis as last year, as follows : 

Radford $490 Knoxville J523

AUDITING COIVrMITTEE. 

Your auditing committee found its duties to be numerous, and its task 
a tedious one. The field was new, and we had to blaze out our own paths. 
There were no sign posts to guide us. but many tracks and footprints in many 
and opposite directions. We have j)assed upon the reports of all of the 
preachers in charge ; and, as we ourselves must confess, our work has not 
been thorough, nor has it been satisfactory to us; and, as the statistical sec- 
retaries have repeatedly confessed to your committee and others, our work 
has been far from satisfactory to them. But, we have made a beginning, 
although faulty, and it may lead to better results. We beg to make a few 
suggestions : 

1. Some of the reports are models of both neatness and accuracy. We 
recommend these as precedents and examples to be followed by all of the 
others. 

2. Seventy-six of the reports are written in pencil. We recommend the 
use of ink in every instance. 

3. More than one-half of the reports were inaccurate and had to be 
corrected. 

4. From the reports generally it is manifest that many of the churches 
and parsonages are not insured at all, or else the preacher in charge has 
failed to report the facts. A large number are wholly silent on the subject 
of "insurance carried" and "premiums paid." 

5. We fear that the reports, as a whole, have not done justice to the 
Senior and Junior Leagues, and the Woman's Foreign and Home Mission 
Societies. In many cases, it appears that the I^eague and Society exist, but 
the reports wholly fail to show anything raised or collected by either. Tour 



THE HOLSTON ANNUAL 71 

committee must conclude that these young people, wherever organized into 
Leagues, and these good women of the Church, wherever organized into 
Missionary Societies, have raised some money, of some amount, and that 
the absence of any mention of funds in the reports, is chargeable to an 
omission of the preacher in charge. 

6. Enough care, we submit, is not given to the various blanks in the re- 
ports. Every blank should be filled, and we recommend the insertion of a 
mere cipher wherever nothing else can be reported. 

7. The work of the statistical secretaries was greatly inconvenienced and 
much delayed by tardiness of many of the preachers in charge in sending 
in their reports. We urge promptness in the future. In fact, these reports 
should be ready when Conference meets. 

8. It should result in fewer mistakes next year for your committee to 
5;tate that the errors discovered in these reports might have readily been 
avoided by the exercise of a little care. 

9. The preachers disagree about the meaning and scope of certain ques- 
tions. For instance, on "Table No. 2," the last question is : "Total amount 
reported in this table, not elsewhere reported;" and in table No. 3, the last 
two questions are : "For other objects ;" and "Total amount raised for all 
objects during the year." The reports show that these questions have been 
variously construed ; and these differences have entailed much confusion in 
reaching accurate totals. We recommend that the Conference adopt some 
measure whereby these questions may have an official, authoritative cop- 
struction. 

Your committee was unable to check the reports of the preachers in 
charge with the record of the funds received by the several treasurers. We 
\isited these treasurers from time to time and from day today, but found their 
records incomplete for the reason that some of the preachers had failed to 
report and turn in their monies. Your committee submit that it might be 
of much service to the Conference if all reports were made with due prompt- 
ness ; but your committee cannot perform its duty as it should be performed 
if the only time given to it for checking and comparing in the last few hours 
of the last day of the Conference session. 

Your committee make these suggestions in the interest of correct Con- 
ference statistics. Faulty reports mean faulty statistics ; and faulty statis- 
tics are valueless if the facts are wanted. 

W. G. M. Thomas, Chairman.

SABBATH OBBRVANCE. 

The secularization of our Holy Sabbath is a growing evil, and the con- 
science of the Church has dolled with its growth until once outraged it now 
often goes unresented. In some localities the marts of trade are open, trains 
make their daily schedules, and amusements are participated in until its old 
quiet and restfulness belong to the traditions of what is smiled at as quaint 
old times. Some of our members are patrons of some of the things that tend 
to breach and despoil the sanctity of God's day. They visit postoffices, news 
stands, Sunday excursions, and come to regard lightly as a day of medita- 
tion. Patriotism as well as piety appeals to us for our zealous concern. It 
is a vital element in our Christian civilization. The Sabbath of our fathers 
is a day fixed and sanctified by the meditation and worship and abstinence 
that has come to be known as the American Sabbath, and it ought not to 



72 THE HOLSTON ANNUAL 

be compromised to appease any nationality, however reverent his oracles ; 
it ought not to be yielded to any propagandist, however sincere in his faith. 
It is the sense of the committee that as preachers and people we ought 
bravely but prudently to arraign all local infringements ; that we avow our 
sympathy with all scriptural efforts to preserve its integrity, and that we 
especially co-operate as far as possible with the "Sunday League of America" 
towards a national movement for the preservation of the Holy Sabbath. 

A. N. Jackson, Chairman.

DISTRICT CONFERENCE RECORDS. 

The record of the Radford District bas been very well kept. That of 
Tazewell District is in very fine condition in every way. Wytheville District 
is very well kept. Abingdon District is well kept. Big Stone Gap District 
has no official roll, but is otherwise fairly well kept. Morristown District is 
beautifully kept. Knoxville District is well kept. Cleveland District is 
excellent. Chattanooga District record is fairly well kept. The Spring City 
District record was not before us. We desire to call especial attention to the 
most excellent and beautiful manner in which the Morristown and Cleveland 
District records have been kept.

MEMOIRS. 



RUFUS M. HICKEY. 

The Rev. Rufus M. Hickey was born in Sevier Gounty, Tennessee, 
August 28, 1820, and died at his residence in Morristown, Tenn., November 
5, 1902, at 7 o'clock p. m., aged 82 years, 2 months and 7 days. He was 
educated at Holston Seminary, an institution of the Methodist Church. He 
atrended this college in the year 1844-45. In 1845 he was licensed to preach 
at Brush Creek Campground, near what is now Johnson City. In 1845 he 
was admitted on trial into the Holston Conference, South, his ministerial 
career beginning with the birth of the Methodist Episcopal Church, South, 
as a separate ecclesiastical organization. The Conference at which he was 
admitted was held at Athens, Tenn., and presided over by Bishop James O. 
Andrew. He was admitted in a class of t-welve, and among his classmates 
were John Alley, Robert A. Young, Carroll Long, Robert W. Pickens and 
II. M. Whaley. At a Conference held at Jonesboro in 1847, Bishop Andrew 
presiding, he was received into full connection. For fifty years he was on 
the effective list, and for seven years he was a superannuate. He served 
forty years on circuits and stations, and ten years in the presiding eldership. 
In his prime he always received first class appointments, because he was, 
among us, a first-class preacher and pastor. He was a natural orator, his 
action in the pulpit being graceful and his elocution excellent. His sermons 
were beaten oil, well studied and earnestly and effectively delivered. His 
imagination was vigorous, his fancy lively, and his pathos exacting. He 
was a weeping prophet, and he was usually master of the emotions of his 
audience. As a pastor he was thorough, visiting from house to house, 
praying with the families, and giving such admonition, advice and encourage- 
ment as each case demanded. A successful revivalist, he took large numbers 
into the Church ; and eternity alone will reveal the amount of good he did. 

When other preachers found it prudent to refugee from East Tennessee 
during the troublous times of the war between the states, and the more 
troublous times immediately after the war, Brother Hickey remained, travel- 
ing, preaching, visiting the sick, burying the dead, and holding the storm- 
tossed barge of his beloved Zion to her moorings amidst the tempests that 
threatened to wreck her. It was a time that tried men's souls. After the 
war mobs composed of lewd men of the baser sort, men who had done little 
but rob and plunder in the name of patriotism, men that, like Job's war 
horse, had snuffed the battle from afar, undertook by threats of violence to 
drive the Southern Methodist preachers from the country. Bundles of 
switches were laid at the churcTies where Brother Hickey was to preach, 
and written notices were served on him that he would not be permitted to 
preach. But none of these things moved him. He trusted in God and met 
his appointments. Rufus M. Hickey was as brave as Julius Caesar. By 
courage, prudence, the favor of good men and women, both Union and Con- 
federate, and the protection of a kind Providence, he conquered a peace, not 
only for himself but for those who came after him. 

He was peculiarly characterized by energy; there was not a lazy bone 
in his body. A bundle of nerves, he could not be still, except when he took 
rest in sleep. In his last days, when he had no pastoral work, he labored 
v/ith his own hands, and was never idle. It was the over-taxing of his 
strength by manual toil a few days before his death, which probably led to 
his collapse and death. On Sunday before his death he returned from a 
meeting at Betcar, on the Morristown circuit, where, however, he did not 



74 THE HOLSTON ANNUAL 

preach, and entering his home to go out no more alive, he said to his chil- 
dren, "I am very sick." A severe cold, contracted on the trip to the coun- 
try, had developed a pulmonary congestion which bore him rapidly to the 
grave. For a few hours at a time he seemed to have relief, and hoped to be 
up again. The morning of the day he died he talked pleasantly and even 
humorously, but lovingly and sweetly. But another onset of the destroyer, 
and this giant oak, already decaying, fell, sending a sensation of surprise 
and sorrow throughout the Church. 

He leaves four interesting and intelligent children, and a large circle of 
weeping friends, to lament his departure. With a little foresight and cau- 
tion, he might have lived longer ; yet, as it was, he fell like the ripe fruit 
from the tree. He had reached his four score years, and was ripe for the 
grave and for Heaven. His beloved wife, as thoughtful and noble a Christian 
woman as ever presided over a Christian household, had, ten years before, 
preceded him to the .spirit-land. Funeral services were conducted by the 
pastor. Rev. J. A. Baylor, in the Presbyterian Church, the 7th, and talks 
were delivered to a large and sympathizing audience by Revs. J. A. Baylor, 
R. N. Price, C. T. Carroll, George D. French, David Sullins, and T. P. 
Summers. The remains were then laid away by the side of the wife of the 
deceased in the Morristown cemetery. R. N. Pbice. 



ELBERT SEVIER BETTIS. 

Elbert Sevier Bettis, son of Simeon and Louisa Bettis, was born in 
Hamblen County, Tennessee, January 23, 1859. His father was drowned in 
the Mississippi river in 1SG4, leaving him fatherless at the tender age of 
five years. He worked between the plow handles. His mother died when he 
was eighteen years old. After a hard struggle with financial diflBculties, he 
entered school, and by indomitable will and a wonderful fund of patience, 
continued until he graduated at Emory and Henry College in 1890, and 
in the Theological department of Vanderbilt University three years later. 
Ho was converted in 1874, and soon thereafter felt his call to the ministry. 
It was this that kept him in school in the face of many difiiculties. He was 
licensed to preach in 1889 at a Quarterly Conference on his home circuit, 
presided over by Dr. C. T. Carroll. During his school days he preached 
much, and, as a supply, served Asheville City mission, Elk Garden Circuit, 
Trenton Circuit, Cooper mission, Poplar Bluff, Mo., and one of the Ten- 
nessee branch prisons as chaplain. 

He was ordained local deacon at Abingdon in 1887 by Bishop McTyeire, 
and local elder in 1891 by Bishop Wilson. He was admitted on trial into 
the Holston Conference, M. E. Church, South, at Broad Street, Knoxville, 
in 1893, and into full connection at Tazewell, Va., in 1895. He served the 
following charges in order : East River mission, two years ; West Bluefield 
mission, two years ; Highland Avenue, Knoxville, one year ; New River 
Circuit, two years ; Saltville Circuit, a part of one year. When he took hold 
of West Bluefield mission it had not a member, and only a rented room in 
which to preach ; when he left it had a good brick church, largely paid for, 
and a membership of 226. His was the only great revival that Bluefield ever 
had. Everywhere he did thorough and effective work, and was almost 
idolized by his people. The children loved him devotedly. While on the New 
River charge he met Miss Kate Pack, of Blacksburg, Va., to whom he was 
happily married September 26, 1900. On the Saltville charge his health 
bioke down, and he was forced to give up his work. That fall he was 
placed on the superannuated list. 

The brave fight he made for his life is known to us all. In New Mexico 
and Arizona he lived awhile in a tent, cooked for himself, and tried to breathe 
new life into the diseased lung tissues that were slowly but surely surrender- 



THE HOLSTON ANNUAL 75 

ing to the struggle. Our Southern Methodist pastors at these places proved 
of invaluable help and sympathy to him. His brethren of the Holston Con- 
ference, and friends on charges thst he had served, did not forget him. The 
gratitude and warmth of his appreciation and love came back often in letters 
lull of faith and courage. 

The good wife joined him some months before his death, and was with 
him, tender and true, to the last. Concerning that death, which occurred 
at Phoenix, Ariz., March 2, 1903, Rev. R. A. Rowland, of our Central 
Church there, wrote : "The end came to Brother Bettis very quickly at 
fifteen minutes after midnight Saturday. I saw him alive for the last time 
Friday evening. I read part of the thirty-seventh Psalm to him, and while 
reading the thirty-seventh verse — "Mark the perfect man and behold the up- 
right, for the end of that man is peace' — I could not help thinking what a 
striking commentary on the truth of that passaage was the approaching end 
of our dear brother. 'Peace' expresses nis end as no other word does. He 
had such a perfect trust in God that he was absolutely without a care, and 
had no wish except the will of his heavenly Father." 

A letter from the faithful wife says that on the last day he said to her : 
"Katie, I will soon be in heaven ; stay near me today." All that day he whis- 
pered sweetly of things eternal, and prayed tenderly for the good wife by his 
side. He made all arrangements for the taking of his body back to the dear 
old hills of Holston, dictated telegrams, gave directions, and sent messages 
of gratitude and love to his brethren and friends afar. We have never had a 
truer, braver, purer man that this brother whose body sleeps, with other 
Holston heroes, on the beautiful green hill at Emory, Va.

JONES FOSTER HASH. 

Jones Foster Hash was bom in Grayson County, Virginia, January 28, 
1870, and was consciously and savingly converted to God in his nineteenth 
year. The following year he was licensed to preach, his license being signed 
by Rev. W. W. Hicks, who was his presiding elder at that time. From the 
very beginning he gave promise of great usefulness to the Church. August 
30, 1891, he was happily married to Miss Sallie Grubb, who proved an inval- 
uable helper in his life work as an itinerant minister to the day on which 
he was released from the responsibilities of earth and was permitted to join 
the general assembly and Church of the Fii-st Born in heaven. 

He was admitted on trial into the Holston Conference at Chattanooga, 
Tenn., in 1891 ; ordained deacon October 28, 1894, by Bishop Granbery, at 
Abingdon, Va. ; ordained elder by Bishop Galloway at Cleveland, Tenn., 
October 11, 1896. He finished his work and fell on sleep August 18, 1903. 
at Rocky Gap, Bland County, Virginia. During these years he served the 
following circuits with great acceptability and marked usefulness : New 
Plope, one year ; Evansville, two years ; Spring City, one year ; Riceville, two 
years ; Trenton, two years ; Whitwell, two years ; Rocky Gap, one year and 
a part of the present year. This was his last charge. During the second 
year on this circuit, where his labors had been crowned with much success, 
his health failed, and in a few months his work was done. On some of these 
charges he was forced, out of a meager support, to pay for a house in which 
to live, because they were not provided with parsonages. The salaries allowed 
him for the eleven best and most productive years of his life average $454 
per year. The amount he received on his allowance makes an average of 
$307.48 per year. There is due him, in unpaid salaries from those charges, 
the sum of $1,607.75, which would be but a pittance to the large number of 
Methodists composing those charges. This amount would now purchase a 



76 THE HOLSTON ANNUAL 

home for the widow and the little orphan children who are left without the 
guidance, protection, and. counsel of husband and father. Outside of the 
Methodist ministry, where is such sublime heroism to be found? 

Brother Hash had reasonably good educational advanta^s, he having 
attended school at Bridle Creek Academy, Sparta Institute, and for a time 
at F^mory and Henry College. He was a man of fine personal appearance, 
was a good all-round preacher. He was a safe man everywhere. He was 
earnest, pathetic, fluent, and at times really eloquent. He was a good re- 
vivalist, and always had good revivals wherever he labored. It is safe to 
say that through his instrumentality scores, if not hundreds, were brought 
to Jesus. The material interests of the Church also prospered under his 
oversight, but it was as a pastor that he excelled. He was as thoughtful, 
sympathetic, and tender as a mother to those in distress. He loved the 
Church, loved the ministry, and literally wore himself out in its service In 
a few brief years. 

While we cherish his memory in all these ways, it was in the home that 
Ms life work appears to best advantage. In a letter written by the sorrowing 
aud almost broken-hearted widow I find this sentence : "He prayed mucli 
in secret, and some of the most fervent prayers he ever uttered were at his 
own family altar, where he opened his heart in confession, and where he 
consecrated himself anew to our Lord and His service, and where he sought 
to pitch his whole conduct on the highest plane of Christian living." Noble 
testimony to a pure life ! What a joy it must be to wife and children to 
read on the fly leaf of his Bible, written by that hand now motionless in the 
grave : "God help me to be pure in thought and action !" He told his wife 
that his prolonged afflictions had been a great blessing to him spiritually. 
He spoke of the mistakes he had made, and endeavored to correct them. He 
was aware that his erid was drawing near, and desired to live to take care of 
his family, provide for and educate the children God had given him ; but the 
greatest trial of his life was to surrender his weapons as a minister of the 
Gospel and cease to continue his loved employ. His consuming desire is 
thuA expressed : 

"Happy, if with my latest breath 

I may but gasp His name ; 
Preach Him to all, and cry in death, 

'Behold, behold the Lamb !'" 

It was a mournful pleasure to his family and friends to lay his body to 
rest at the church, in Grayson County, Virginia, wTiere he was converted and 
where he joined in his youth. May his fallen mantle, in the coming years, 
rest upon his children, and may the noble impulses which actuated the father 
to consecrate his all to God and the Church be theirs and be reproduced in 
them, and the ranks now broken be restored forever ! His home, our ministry, 
our Conference — each is poorer because of his departure, and heaven is richer 
for his having gone up on high. R. A. Owen.

flows through the farm is violet-brinked and in eddy places mirrors the sky. 
There Orrie Brown was born October 11, 1846, and there from childhood 
her eyes feasted on clean, beautiful, and inspiring things. She seemed to 
grow striving to make her life conformable to the beauty that was all 
around her. Her spirit was blithe as a summer day ; her life as pure as a 
Mayflower. 

Her family was Lutheran. Her uncle, .Tames Brown, was a Lutheran 
minister. But the parents attended the Methodist services at Mt. Pleasant, 



THE HOLSTON ANNUAL 77 

took the children, or permitted them to go, and then at an early age she was 
converted and joined our Church. Was she to be a Methodist minister's 
wife? To be or not to be, she was. And it was well. 

She was married to Rev. T. P. Smyth, September 22, 1868, and with joy 
she shared with him, till he was removed by death ten years ago, the lot of 
the itineracy. In all the appointments of her husband she was a genuine 
helpmeet. Wherever they went she was deservedly popular, and many in 
the charges served by her husband have heard of her deatli with genuine 
sorrow, and dropped a tear to her memory. When her husband died, 
although sTie was entitled to a place as a claimant on the superannuate fund, 
she relinquished it in favor of the poorer widows and their orphan children. 
After her husband's death she did not lose interest in Church work. She 
was talking of equipments of the new church, hard by the home, just before 
her fatal sickness. But while she loved her own Church with intensest affec- 
tion she was a friend and helper to all others who loved her Lord in sincerity. 

She was a great friend and valuable counselor of the young. Having no 
children of her own, she was like a mother, or an elder sister, to her nephews 
and nieces, and her counsel to them was worth more than any gifts of gold 
could possibly be. 

She not only loved her Church, and was loved by the members in return. 
but she was the devoted friend of the ministers, and they reciprocated her 
sisterly regard and esteem. Every minister of our Conference may know that 
in her death he has lost a friend. 

There could really be but one thing the basis of her beautiful character, 
her useful and unsullied life. She had natural goodn&ss, she cultivated gen- 
tleness of speech and action; but the chief foundation was her vital piety, her 
communion with God. A Bible student, she was "like a tree planted by the 
rivere of water." Being dead, her words, like leaves of an evergreen tree, 
still live ; and her deeds still invite others to follow her as she followed 
Christ. 

Sister Smyth's health was not robust for several years prior to her last 
illness. And all unconsciously to herself she was ripening for the kingdom of 
glory, getting ready for celestial transplanting. She was ready when she 
was summoned through the thorny path of pain to walk, she knew not wheth- 
er back to health and friends on earth, or down into and across the valley of 
the shadow of death to those beyond ; for she said, when about to be placed 
on the table for the surgical operation, which it was hoped would save the 
life suspended in imminent peril : "In the hands of the Lord I place myself, 
and it is all right anyway." Beautiful resignation ! Sublime faith ! In thia 
tabernacle we "groan, being burdened ; not for that we would be unclothed, 
but clothed upon, that mortality might be swallov/ed up of life." All right 
it is, forever and for evermore ! 

Her aged father survives to mourn for a little wliile his great bereave- 
ment ; the sisters and brothers, too, feel most keenly this affliction which was 
so unexpected. Her fond nephews and nieces will deplore her demise, as if 
a mother had been taken. May the kind Father enable all to say : "The 
Lord gave, and the Lord hath taken away ; blessed be the name of the Lord !"

MRS. MARY ANN HUTSELL. 

Mrs. Mary Ann Hutsell was born in Buncombe County, North Carolina, 
April 13, 1818. She was married to Rev. E. K. Hutsell, April 15, 1840. Her 
husband was a member of tlie Holston Conference, was a gifted preacher, 
and especially successful in revival work. He died in middle life. Sister 
Hutsell died at the home of her son-in-law, Silas Sharp, near LaPollette, 
Tenn., November 29, 1902. iShe was a woman of bright intellect and strong 



78 THE HOLSTON ANNUAL 

character. After the death of her sainted husband, she found herself with 
several children to support, and very little means. iShe had quite a good 
English education for her day, and turned it to account in school teaching. 
She was popular and successful, and ttins enabled to do much good while 
she was supporting hereelf and her children. She professed faith in Christ 
in her thirteenth year, and joined the Methodist Church. Her religious life 
was not only orderly and consistent, but zealous and useful. She was a 
constant and extensive reader. "Wliile she kept well up with the general 
literature of her time, she delighted in reading the standard religious books 
of her Church, and was a regular and careful Bible reader. She thus became 
an intelligent and mature Christian, with strong faith and bright hope of 
eternal life. 

Her reverence for the memory of her husband, which she held and 
nurtured to the last, was beautiful indeed. She spent the last several years 
of her life in the home of her daughter, Mrs. Silas Sharp, where everything 
that the tenderest affection could suggest was provided for her comfort. 
WTien age and infirmity would no longer permit her to go abroad, she spent 
her time reading, and instructing her grandchildren in letters and religion. 
She is the mother of Rev. K. A. Hutsell, of the Holston Conference, who has 
inherited the gifts and graces of both his father and mother in an eminent 
degree. Such a life could but have a good ending. As she stood on the bank 
of the Jordan, and looked over into the beautiful land of promise, she said 
in Ihe confidence of the faith which she had so carefully kept and cultivated, 
"I am almost home." When she entered the pearly gate what a hearty wel- 
come did she receive from the husband of her youth, who had been in heaven 
the half of a century, watching and waiting for her ! And what a happy 
union between these two loving hearts, so long separated. All the tenderest 
depths of my heart are stirrred as I thus write about Sister Hutsell. Her 
husband was my spiritual father, and she has been a lifelong, loving friend. 
Wo shall meet again. Frank Richaedson. 



MRS. J. D. M'ALISTER. 

Mrs. Buna Moore McAlister was born at Dandridge, Tenn., May 20, 
1865, and died at Cedar Bluff, Va., February 27, 1903. She was married to 
Rev. J. D. McAlister at Knoxville, Tenn., Aug. 5, 1891. When she was 
about ten years of age, she gave her heart to the Savior. During a meeting 
held at Broad Street, Knoxville, conducted by Bros. Dodge and Henck, she 
entered into the experience of entire sanctification. This was about the year 
1889. Her's was a simple, devoted, Christian life. The writer will never 
forget the effective help rendered by her in a meeting held by him in his 
church at Fountain City, Tenn. During the pastoraite of her husband at 
Creeneville, Tenn., Dr. B. Carradine was invited to hold a series of meetings 
in his church (M. E. Church, South). During this marvelous revival, Bro. 
McAlister entered in the same experience, to the great joy of the now sainted 
wife. She received large measures of understanding and power in these 
meetings, and her growtb in the graces of the Spirit was remarkable. She 
was a most intelligent, industrious and self-reliant woman, and when busi- 
ness reverses impoverished her family while she was still in her 'teens, she 
came forward as the chief stay and counselor in her home. 

As a church worker, she was, from her conversion, efficient and suc- 
cessful. She was a most valuable helper of her husband in Tiis work as pas- 
tor, in organizing and sustaining the societies of the church, and in leading 
souls to Jesus. Soul-saving was her chief aim, and, in this she was eminently 
successful. During the eleven years of her married life, she led not less than 
two hundred souls to Christ by personal work alone, in their homes or in 



THE HOLSTON ANNUAL 79 

her own, to say nothing of the large numbers she influenced by her words 
and works in public gatherings. 

As a mother she was sacrificing, tender, patient and firm. She diligently 
studied the life of Mrs. Susanna Wesley as a mother, and strove to emulate 
the virtues of that noble woman. This she succeeded in doing in a remark- 
able degree. During her last days on earth, she so fortified and instructed 
the hearts of her children as to how they should bear her departure, and 
conduct themselves aftei'ward, that her home was orderly and easily managed 
after her translation to glory. It is most remarkable how the children are 
rimning in the ways wherein she instructed them. 

As a friend she was so loyal and sympathetic, so strong and tender, that 
her equals brought her their perplexities and burdens, assured that their con- 
fidences would be respected, and that they would receive wise counsel and 
help. The poorest and most ignorant saw in her the Spirit of the Master, 
and came to her with the same implicit love and trust. This made heavy 
demands on her time and strength, but she freely gave up both in His name. 
She was sweet, clear, serene, unwavering in her Christian character, mellow 
and constantly triumphant in her experience. The spirit of wisdom and of 
a sound mind, of glory and of power, rested strongly upon her. She was a 
most intelligent Christian, professing and adorning the Biblical and Metho- 
dist doctrine of entire sanctification, and was ever ready to give a reason for 
the hope within. She knew her Bible from cover to cover. The markings in 
it, if studied, would be a liberal education to many who think themselves 
prepared to preach. She was well versed in the doctrine and discipline of 
her Church. She was well acquainted with Methodist history, and com- 
muned much with the master spirits of the movement, such as the Wesleys, 
Fletcher, Watson, Carvosso and others. She had a great faith and dared 
to ask for great things. It was her faith that led to the establishment of an 
orphanage at Greeneville, Tenn. She rode on horseback for fifteen miles, 
with her babe in her arms, and secured from an humble, holy widow a sub- 
scription of $500, which was the first cash paid into the orphanage building 
fund. 

Sister McAlister was not strong pysically, and for months before her 
death, was a great sufferer, but no word of complaint ever escaped her lips. 
The will of God was her will. As the time of her departure drew nearer her 
joy increased. Her mouth was filled with praise, and when the final sum- 
mons came she broke forth into rapturous shoutings, and thus ascended to 
glory. W. D. Akebs. 



MRS. SEWELL PHILLIPS. 

Through some inadvertence the memoir of Mrs. Sewell Phillips wa« not 
readj at Conference, and is not now in hand, though some one was asked 
to prepare it. The secretary can only make mention of her name here in 
this sacred place. After all, it is not what men write about us, but what is 
written down in our favor in the Lamb's book of life. The preachers' wives 
deserve respect and admiration for their loyalty to the cause, and their 
fidelity in the roving life and vicissitudes of the itinerancy. The faithful 
ones will stand among the sun-crowned heirs of life eternal at last.
