AN EDITORIAL WORD. 



The price of the Holston Annual is twenty-five cents. 
Preachers will sell the copies sent them, deduct cost of postage 
and Money Order and remit to me at Abingdon, Va. If more 
copies can be disposed of be certain and write at once. 

The picture of Mrs. J. M. Eomans was not good enough to 
make a creditable half-tone. AH of our Schools and Colleges did 
not send in the names of Boards of Visitors so none were inserted. 

I take pleasure in saying a good word for our Advertisers. 
The Annual would not knowingly allow an unreliable house to be 
represented in its pages. 

Any errors in this issue are regretted by the Secretary, who 

has worked "single handed and alone" with the printers to keep 

clear of mistakes. 

JAMES A. BUREOW, Secretary.

A COMPARISON. 

Methodism was organized in America in 1784. The Baptists came in 
1639 ; the Congregationalists in 1G48 ; the Lutherans and Episcopalians be- 
gan with the settlement of America ; the Presbyterians came in 1703. 
From this it will be seen that the Methodist Church is the youngest in the 
country ; 145 years younger than the Baptist, eighty-one years younger 
than the Presbyterian, 136 years younger than the Congregationalist. The 
following (latest) statistics of the denominational strength in the United 
States show how our church has grown : 

Methodist 6,2oi6,738 

Baptist 5,150,815 

Lutheran 1,789,766 

Presbyterian 1,697,697 

Episcopal 807,924

CONFERENCE RELATIONS.— The committee on Conference 
Relations made the following report which was adopted : 

There is no more honorable place held by man, than that of a superan- 
nnate. These men who are worn out in the itinerant service deserve the 
highest honor, and our sincere affections. The. majority of them have sacri- 
ficed every worldly ambition. They have endured hardness like good soldiers. 

The more honorable a place is, the more carefully should we guard its 
entrance. We should consider well those we admiit into full connection. 

We should not hastily demand of our older men, that they retire from the 
effective list, but, with tender solicitude provide light work for them, and 
let the church profit by their mature judgment and long experience. 

One superannuate, Jas. Mahoney, and one supernumerary, J. B. Davis, 
hi^ve died during the year. 

We recommend the following persons for superannuated relations : M. 
L. Clendenen, J. O. Maness, J. H. Brunner, J. R. Payne, L. O. Delashmit, 
^Jaco'b Smith, A. D. Stewart, L. K. Haynes, W. H. Kellev, C. K. Miller,

CONKKRENCK REPORTS. 



A. 

DISTRICT CONFERENCE RECORDS. 

Your committee on District Conference Records submit their report as 
follows : 

Records Present— ^Radford, Tazewell, Wytheville, Abingdon, Big- Stone 
Gap, Morristown, Knoxville. Spring Citj^ and Chattanooga. Record absent — 
Cleveland. 

The Radford District Conference Record presents good foi-m and neatness, 
showing improvement oTer last year. 

The Tazewell District Conference Record is well kept, and well arranged, 
being a model of neatness. 

The Wytheville District Conference Record shows haste and careless pen- 
mfinship. The secretary signed the Presiding Elder's name. The usual 
record ds given, but more care should be taken in recording it. 

The Abingdon District Conference Record is well written and in good 
taste and form. 

The Big Stone Gap District Conference Record is in good general condi- 
tion, but in some places the secretary seemed to oi'owd space in wniting. 

The Morristowii District Conference Record is neat and in good form, 
but the different articles s;hould be separated by ruled lines rather thajj 
flourishes, as Recoi-d matter. 

The Knoxville District Conference Record has blots on its pages and the 
margin is irregiilar and too wide on right side of pages. 

The Spring City District Conference Record is very plainly written and 
is generally neat, but there is room for improvement and neatness, though 
it is well kept. 

The Chattanooga District Conference Record is kept in due form. Th^? 
hour of the opening is omitted. The supplements do not show the subject. 
The label does not ^how the name of the district. The margin is too narrow. 

Proper margins and lines ruled with red ink, sub-dividing margins, subject 
matter, and articles, looking to a more complete form of Record improve- 
ment is recommended. Each supplement of committee reports should show 
the subject of the report as well as the supplement, and every page of the 
Record should be dated as provided for at head of each page. 

C. R. Melton, Chairman. 

M. W. HuET, Secretary. 



B. 

SPIRITUAL STATE OF THE CHURCH. 

Our mission, as a Conference is to save men from their sins. For this 
purpose we were organized, and to this end we labor. Other things are 
subservient to this, and wiill pass with their using. We would not depreciate 
in the least, the material side, for we believe that if we, as a people, would 
bring all the tithes into God's great store house, He would pour us out 
such a blessing as we would not be able to contain ; still too much stress can- 
not be placed on getting the people soundly converted and keeping them close 
to Christ. If we are to leave behind us, when we are gone, a lasting im- 
pression for good — if we are to "shine as the stars of heaven," in the eter- 



46 THE HOLS TON ANNUAL 

nity to which we are fast hastening — it will come as a result of the fact 
that we have turned many to righteousness by the faithful preaching of the 
word, and following closely in the footsteps of Jesus. 

It is therefore, with profound gratitude to God, that we are able, after 
carefully listening to the reports of the preachers, to make this, an encour- 
aging report. With comparatively few exceptions, the charges have had con- 
versions aggregating something near ten thousand (possibly more than this), 
thereby verifying unto us the saying of our distinguished founder, "t)hat the 
best of all is God is with us." 

Perhaps there has not been a time in our history, when the leadings of 
the Spirit were seen and felt in the Sabbath School work, more than today ; 
for many are being led by its influence to Christ. 

The Epworth Leagues and the Women's Missiionary Societies are con- 
tributing quite a little in the way of helping along this great work, and we 
trust the day will not come when any spiritual interest will wane in any 
sense, but that it will continue to grow until the kingdoms of this world 
shall become the kingdoms of our Lord and of His Christ. 

Resolved, That, God helping us. we will labor earnestly during the coming 
year to have a greater number of conversions and to get our peoiple into 
closer relations with -Jesus. G. W. Jackson, Clhairman. 

B. M. Pippin, Secretary. 



THE SUNDAY SCHOOL. 

If nineteen hundred years of ecclesiastical history teaches one thing more 
clearly than another, it is this, the utter hopelessness of world-wide salva- 
tion, if the Church shall be content to assume the rela.tion of stejHnother 
to adult converts and refuse acceptance of the functions, resiponsibilities and 
privileges of true motherhood in the family of God on earth. That the Church 
ig at last awakening to the fact that every child bom of a woman has a 
birth right interest in the kingdom of God by virtue of its redemption by 
Christ, and that this conception is being realized as the great fundamental 
principle of her being, is matter of profound thanksgiving to God on the 
part of many who have prayed and labored for the emancipation of cihild- 
hood from the woes of spiritual orphanage. To the Methodist Eipiscopal 
Church belongs the honor of having thrown its doors wide open to the 
children and of extending to them a whole-hearted welcome to its sheltering 
arms. This is the unequivocal declaration of its book of Discipline : "We 
hold that all children, by virtue of the unconditional benefits of the atone- 
ment are members of the kingdom of God, and, therefore, graciously entitled 
to baptism." So unto that communion there is in childhood "neither Greek 
nor Jew, circumcision nor uncircumcision, Barbarian, Scythian, bond nor 
free; but Christ is all. and in all." 

Herein is enunciated the doctrine of prepossession as against that of re- 
possession. Not the merciless thrusting out of our Lord's whole hundred 
into the wilderness of sin, but the so loving and so caring for them all that 
if but one be gone astray the ninety and nine may be safely left in the 
shelter of the fold, while the conversion of that one to its former security is 
anxiously sought. But note that aminous saying of our Lord : "And if so 
be that be find it" — ithat lost one. No wonder that there is a voice heard — 
lamentation, and weeping, and great mourning, Rachel weeping for her 
children, and refusing to be comiforted because they are not in the fold of 
faith, but bewailed as dead — in trespass and in sins. 

The flush of the gladdest day that ever dawned upon redeemed humanity 
has for its harbinger the morning star of the motherhood of the Church pre- 
saging the glorious sunbTirst of the fatherhood of God and the brotherhood 
of man, unto tihe whole round world. 



THE HOL^TON ANNUAL 47 

We rejoice in the grace bestowed iiipon tlie Holston Conference in that 
it stands in the very forefront of those who have gathered the children under 
the protecting wing of love so that instead of 1,100,000, there will be 1,600,000 
in Southern Methodist Sunday schools when our sister Conferences shall fall 
iEito line with us. 

We rejoice in the glorious gospel of childhood saJvation that our Sunday 
school editor is preaching ; in the superior quality of litei-ature which he is 
furnishing ; and in the well grounded hope of enlarged facilities for the bet- 
ter equipment of our schools. Confessing our sins of neglect as regards our 
ministry to the cihildren whom God hath given us, imploring His forgive- 
ness and sanctifying ourselves afresh to this the most hopeful and blessed 
work ever committed to human hands, we covenant together. 

1. That we will diligently instruct and exhort all parents to dedicate 
their Children to the Lord in baptism as early as con\'enient ; w>ill endeavor 
to have baptized children faithfully instructed in the nature, design, privi- 
leges and obligations of their baptism, and as soon as such children compre- 
hend the responsibilities involved in a public profession of faith in Christ 
and give evidence of a sincere determination to discharge the same, we will 
see that they be duly recognized as members of the Church, agreeably to the 
provisions of the Discipline. 

2. That as pastors we will study to show ourselves approved unto God, 
not only in the pulpit, but also as efficient leaders of our forces in modern 
form® of S'UTiday school work ; and that we will not only seek to secure the 
attendance of children at the preaching service, but will strive to hold 
them by proper adaptation of our discourse to their needs. 

8. That we wdll endeavor to secure the betterment of our schools in the 
matter of equipment, organization, management and instruction, discour- 
aging the use of current helps in the school room and encouraging famiiliarity 
with and the use of the Bible by officers, teachers and scholars. 

4. That we will, wherever it is possible, establish organized adult classes 
and in every school a home department. 

5. That we will bring to the attention of our schools and emphasiize the 
importance of the various great interests of the Church and by suitalble 
observance of specially appointed occasions, will try to bring our young x>eople 
into sympathetic touch with all the forward movements of the Church. 

6. That we Will stand by our young people in the maintenance of their 
right to Sunday school privileges the year rouna.

BOOKS AND PERIODICALS. 

Your committee on Books and Periodicals submit the following report : 
We are pleased to see in the report of our Publishing Agents, that oar 
Fublisihing House is in a llourishing condition, constantly bringing out new 



48 THE HOLSTON ANA'VAL 

books which are being p^Iaced in the bands of our people. We are also 
pleased to note a general improvement in the circulation of the official peri- 
odicals of our Ohurch. 

The "Review," under the editorial management of Dr. Gross Alexamder, 
has been continued on the high plane where it was placed by the late Bishop 
Tigert, and is increasing in popularity. It should be in the hands of ever>' 
preacher, and many of the laymen of the Church. 

The "Ohristian Advocate," which is in a special sense our official organ, 
has been greatly improved^ both in its appearance and subject matter. It is 
our opinion that the paper has never been better than at the present time; 
we are sorry that the subscription list has not grown faster. We earnestly 
Jirge that as preachers we put forth a greater effort to increase the circula- 
tion of our official organ. 

The "EiJworth Era," under the able editorship of Dr. H. M. DulBose, is 
of great value in strengthening our organized societies among the young peo- 
ple, and as the exponent of an exceptional ideal of social and intellectual 
liffr in the Ohurch. We are sorry to note that it has not been self-sustain- 
ing because of the losses sustained by delinquent subscriptions. As pastors 
here is the opportunit:\' for us to help this valuable publication by supervis- 
ing the clubs or individual subscribers in our respective charges. 

The Sunday School literature still maintains its high rank and its pop- 
ularity. It is constantly being improved in various ways, and we are con- 
fident, that for our people especially, there is no better Sunday school litera- 
ture published anywhere. 

We are pleased to hear that our Conference organ. The "Midland Metho- 
dist," under the able management of D'r. J. A. Burrow, has increased its 
subscription list from 4,000 to 7,000, and is now on a paying basis. We 
respectfully request the Bishop to appoint Rev. T. C. Schuler to the editor- 
ship of our Conference organ, and also, earnestly insist that every one rally 
to the assistance of our new editor in helping to give us a valuable paper. 

We heartily commend the two volumes of Holston History by Dr. R. N. 
Price, and suggest that we use every means possible to sell these volumes 
and thereby make it possible to bring out the third volume in the near futura. 

We respectfully ask the appointment of Dr. J. W. Perry, Dr. Eugene Blake 
and Hon. Creed F. Bates as our publishing oommittee. 

J. E. Dowry, Chairman. 



E. 

TEMPERANCE. 



The tremendous advancement of the temperance hosts and the signal vic- 
tories of the past year over the legalized liquor traffic call for profound grat- 
itude to Almighty God. We have now within the United States of America, 
five prohibition states. Five or six more are almost so. and several others 
are sturdily fighting toward that goal. i\Iore than half of our own terri- 
toi'y, and not less than thirty-five millions of our people are under laws pro- 
hibiting the sale of intoxicating liquors. Holston Conference territoi'y almost 
sees the day of its entire deliverance from this infamous thing. Two places 
in East Tennessee — ^Chattanooga and LaFollette ; three in Virginia — Abing- 
don, Pulaski and Pocahontas ; with our two towns in West Virginia will, 
after November, 1, 1907, be the extent of this legalized crime in Holston. 
We are girding up our loins to thrash it out of these places also. 

The question with us will, it now seems, soon be one of law enforcecment 
alone. This is a serious problem and we need so to understand. We offer 
the following resolutions : 

First. That we again commit ourselves to stern and unrelenting war- 
fare against the manufacture and sale of intoxicating beverag'es — even unto 
their utter and entire destruction. 



THE HOLSTON ANNUAL 49 

Second. That the saloon has no right in law, except as the people, through 
their suffi-age and officers, grant it the privilege of existence. It is a fair 
conclusion that the responsibility for this awful curse rests upon the voters 
of our country. 

Third. That as the law enforcement period is a most critical one, we 
most earnestly urge our people to sink all political differences in the elec- 
tion of legislators who will give us adequate statutory legislation, and of 
oflicers Who will strictly enforce the laws enacted, so that the expressed will 
of the people for the suppression and destruction of this crime may be se- 
cured. 

Fourth. That we recognize in the Anti- Saloon League of America a 
most practical and efficient means offered to the church for the annihilation 
of the traffic in intoxicating liquor, and we earnestly recommend to oui' 
preachers and dhurches that they give to the officers and workers of the 
Lieague a welcome hearing at least once each year and accord the work a 
generous support. 

Fifth. We call attention to the action of the General Conference, and to 
former resolutions of this Conference concerning the tobacco habit and beg 
the preachers and people to govern themselves accordingly. 

Sixth. We recommend that Rev. J. D. McAlister be appointed as a field 
secretary for the Virginia Anti-Saloon League. 

J. D. McAxiSTER, Chairman.

BOARD OF CHURCH EXTENSION. 

Your Board is glad to report a healthy condition in the dhurch building 
interests of the Conference. New churches 'have sprung up in every part of 
our Conference. Not only is the number of new churches a matter of en- 
couragement, but the style of architecture and the conv^enienoe of these 
houses of worship are also evidences of our intelligent zeal in the Master's 
cause. The Parent Board has assessed us $5,88&, which is an increase of 
$1,097. We have apportioned the same amount to each district, viz : $53S. 
We have apportioned $2,205 to seventeen churches as follows :

land Ramsey Ohurch, Knoxville, available $250 in 1908, and the same sum 
in 1909.

BIBLE BOARD. 

We recognize the greatness and importance of the work done b.y the Ameri- 
can Bible Society, and realize that the largest results can be reached only by 
the earnest co-oi>eration of the churches in this work. We therefore assure the 
Society of our willingness to contribute to its support. We feel the need 
cf some systematic method of distributing the Bible, especially in destitute 
places in our Conference territory, and pledge ourselves to co-opei'ate with 
the Society in the establishment of any method that promises success. We 
would urge our brethren of the Conference to bring the importance of this 
work before the people and take the collection for it promptly and in full. 

We recomm.end the apportionment of $1,100 among the districts as follows: 

Bluefield $100 Morrlstown $100

THE HOLSTON ANNUAL 53 



EPWORTH LEAGUE BOARD. 

We rejoice to note the good work done by the Eipiworth League during 
the past year. The character of the work is strong and abiding. We now 
have 67 Senior Leagues and 77 Junior Leagues, with a total members;hip 
of 5,591. Our Leagues have raised for all purposes $3,644. Consider the 
prosperity of our time, together with the willingness of our young people 
to contribute, we believe that the Leagues of Holston would raise a much 
larger amount if they had a definite object to which their energies are di- 
rected. To this end it is hoped that the next Epworth League Conference 
at Harriman, Tenn., will take special action toward preparing and main- 
taining a missionary to labor among the foreigners now in our midst. 

We suggest that the resolution of last year's report be continued : "Re- 
solved, That the Holston Conference set apart the second Sunday night in 
February as League evening, to be devoted to the Senior and Junior Leagues, 
a free will offering to be taken for the support of the Epworth League C<>n- 
ference, provided .that any surplus accruing from this movement go to the 
cause of foreign missions, looking to the support of a league missionary in 
the near future." 

We recommend that each pastor read the Epworth Era, and appoint an 
agent in every class for this excellent periodical ; further, that each pastor 
send the name of the best leader in his flock to Edward F. Cook, Nashville, 
Tenn., for helps and instruction in forming and teaching mission study 
classes. 

In view of the fact that leagues in some places are not making progress in 
the study of literature, and that all our leagues need a system of study and 
instruction, be it therefore urged that every league as far as possible ad- 
here to the prescribed reading course. We commend for a more accurate 
study of the Scriptures, the Bible Circle Quarterly. We respectfully ask 
all pastors to see that their Junior Leagues purchase "The Juvenile Li- 
brary." 

We heartily endorse the movement to hold a summer institute at Emory 
and Henry College, Rev. J. A. Early having been appointed by this board 
to work with others in making the necessary arrangements for a pleas- 
ant profit to every Epworth Leaguei- who may attend. 

We pray your loyal sui)p'Ort of every department of Epworth League 
woi-k, believing that many of our young people may be nourished through 
this organization. 

P. L. Cobb, Chairman.

SABBATH OBSERVANCE. 

"The Sabbath was made for man, not man for the Sabbath." The giv- 
ing to the Lord of one-seventh of our time, is mandatory and rational. The 
Sabbath should be so kept as to benefit man and glorify God. The com- 
mand to keep the Sabbath was hedged about by the traditions of the Phari- 
sees. There were many grievous and burdensome restrictions. We are now 
threatened with undue laxness. In many places of our country there is 
only a nominal Sabbath. In the South we have had, until recent years, 



54 THE H0L8T0N ANNUAL 

a quiet Sabbath. Gradually the Sabbath is losing its sanctity, and is being 
secularized. Some members of the Church lend their influence to such 
desecration. They patronize railroads, livery stables and street cars for 
business or pleasure, and do that often during the hour of religious services. 
There is danger of legalism and literalism. Tlie spirit of Sabbath oibserv- 
ance should always be maintained. We can not afEord to obser\'e the letter 
(0 the neglect of the spirit. The Church should stand firmly by the Sabbath. 
The pi'ess and pulpit should unitedly attack all invasions of its sanctity, 
and arrest its desecration.s. Let us as members of this Conference earn- 
estly contend for the safety and sanctity of the Christian Sabbath. 

J. L. Prater, Chairman.

COMMITTEE OF MANAGEMENT. 

Your Committee of Management, appointed to superintend the raising 
and expenditure of .$77,000, for the better equipment of Emoiy and Henry 
College, report as follows : 

There has been secured to date : 

1. For Agent's Salary, 16 months .' •$ 2,000 00 

2. In Notes 54,312 50 

3. In Subscriptions 5,550 00 

Total $76,304 00 

There has been expended to date : 

1. For Agent's Salary, 16 months $ 2,000 00 

2. For traveling expenses of Agent 450 00 

3. For Emoi-y and Henry College buildings and 

water works 10,765 38 

Total $12,215 38 

In completing ihe work committed to us three things are necessary, 
namely : First, closing up with cash pr notes the $5,550.00 now existing as 
subscriptions ; second, the securing of an additional amount suflicient to 
cover all expenses, so as to leave $77,000.00 to invest as originally intended ; 
which amount, calculating expenses as rendered to date, would be $3,086.00 ; 
third, converting all into cash and advising with the trustees as to its 
expenditure. 

For the success achieved we are indebted to our financial agent. Rev 
J. O. Straley ; and his continuance as agent of Emory and Hem-y College 
until this fund is secured in cash seems to us a necessity. We therefore 
request that his appointment foa- the year shall include the duty of com- 
pleting this work. AVhen $75,000.00 has 'been secured in cash, or marketable 
securities, the $25,000.00 promised by Mr. Andrew Carnegie becomes availa- 
ble.

BOARD OF EDUCATION. 

We rejoice in the manifold evidences of the awakening of the entire 
nation to the value and importance of education. At no time in the history 
of our country have educational institutions received such attention and 
support from the individual and the state. We furthennore rejoice that 
this spirit of sympathy and support is shared by our Holston people who 
have made possible the plan for rebuilding Emory and Henry College and 
have filled some, if not all, our Conference Schools with the largest home 
patronage in their history. 

We ought to esteem it a privilege no less than a duty to supix>rt our 
Methodist Schools, for it is manifestly the design of God, the Author of all 
ti'uth, that in the training of the mind and the heart, tnie education and true 
religion, slhould go hand in hand in the development of all the goodness and 
greatness of which humanity is capable. Education is a very bulwark of 
strength to religion. One century ago only 8 per cent, of the students in 
the Colleges of the nation were even disposed to a religious life ; at preseur 
52 per cent, are members of the Church. It is noteworthy that the mis- 
sionary spirit is now^here moire intense than in colleges and universities. 
In our Confei-ence Colleges a far larger proportion of students are religious 
while annually many go from them to our mission fields at home and aibroad. 
In some of our Holston Colleges there are at every session revivals of. religion 
thai often result in the conversion of practically the entire student body. 
It is the policy of this Board to encourage the re'sival spirit in them and 
to insist that the teaching force shall be distinctively and positively Ohn-is- 
tian. 

WTiile it is our particuar concern to maintain schools of higher grade 
distinctively religious in tone, our attitude to the public schools is sympa- 
thetic for it is to them we must look for the education of the masses of our 
people. We recommend that our preachers visit these schools and co-operate 
wherever practicable, with Boards of Trustees in the selection of Chirisrtian 
teachers for them. 

The General Board has fixed the Education Extension as for our Confer- 
ence at $1,710. This assessment deserves special consideration inasmuch as 
one of its purposes is to place the Educaitional work of the C. M. E. 
Church largely under the friendly supervision of our General Board of 
Education and thus protecting the negro from imbibing fanatical ideas from 
those who understand neither him nor his needs, and which are alike hurt- 
ful to him and obnoxious to us. 

Of even greater impoirtance is another object of this fund, that of bring- 
dng an education Avithin reach of the poorei" people in the more needy ter- 
ritory of our Church, by assistance in establishing and maintaining Mis- 



56 THE HOLSTON ANNUAL 

sion Schools, wHhere any boy or girl can obtain both moral and intellectual 
training. We have the assurance of the Committee representing the General 
Board that they recognize our needs in Holston, and we feel sure of their 
disposition to help us. 

It gives us pleasure to report that the Vanderbilit Correspondence School 
has met with great favor. More than one thousand students were enrolled 
in its various courses last year. We urge the undergraduates of the Con- 
ference to take the Correspondence Course, and we earnestly commend it* 
work to the favorable consideration of all our people. From the report of 
the Conference Colleges and Academies' submitted to us we present the 
following facts as to their present condition :

Pryor Institute 6 198 2,000 5,000 30,000 

Pikeville Training School 3 126 750 .... 7,000 

Sullins College has increased its teaching force by eight and it is grati- 
fying to note an increase of more than one hundred pupils enrolled. 

We call special attention to the I'ecord of Centenary College during the 
year just closed. In the middle of the school year, visited by a destructive 
fire which consumed her main building, it was regarded at the time as a 
misfortune, if not a calamity. However, without pause, and with com- 
mendable zeal, the authorities of the institution, with the citizens of 
Cleveland and friends elsewhere, began to plan with wisdom and execute 
with energy, so that now a larger, handsomer and more commiodious build- 
ing adorns her campus, making possible a larger enrollment and the addi- 
tio^i of departments of study that mean much to her future, and this, too, 
with a remaining indebtedness less than before her destructive visitation. 
We recommend that the authorities of this instituton be permitted to em- 
ploy a financial agent for the liquidation of the debt and for additional 
equipment. 

Martha Washington College has made great progress and notwithstand- 
ing additional dormitories secured by placing a third story on the main 
building, and other additions, she is in need of more room in order to ac- 
commodate her patronage. We recommend that E. F. Kahle be appointed 
Commissioner of Education and financial agent of this institution in order 
to pay off the indebtedness and meet the conditions of an offer made by 
Mr. Andrew Carnegie for the erection of a new building that will accom- 
modate a hundred girls. 

Emory and Henry College has a larger enrollment than at any time since 
the civil war; two new buildings are nearing completion, and the move- 
ment to raise $75,000 in order to secure $25,000 from Mr. Andrew Car- 
negie, under the agency of Rev. J. O. Straley, has met with such succes-? 
tliat the authorities in charge are proceeding with the plans for enlarge- 
ment. 

Brother Straley deserves the gratitude of the Conference for his faith in 
undertaking and his untiring zeal in accomplishing this great task and we 
rncommend that he be retained in ofiicial connection with the movement 
for reconstruction. 

By action of your Board, its executive committee is charged with au- 
thority to co-operate with the Board of Missions in maintaining a mission 
school at Hiwa.ssee College, provided that board acquires the lease of the 
plant there and inaugurates the enterprise in accordance with representa- 
tions which have been made to us. The chairman of this board has been 
authorized to arrange for and to hold a Summer Institute for preachers 



TEE HOLSTON ANNUAL 57 

and lay workers, conjointly with the Boards of Missions, Sunday Schools 
and Epworth Leagues, subject to the approval of the Conference. 

This Board feels that the secondary schools under its care deserve spe- 
cial commendation for their faithful work with insufl5cient means and 
under other unfavorable circumstances. We regret our inability to give 
them immediate financial assistance. We have taken action looking to 
joint meetings of their Boards of Trusitees and the Eixecutive Committee of 
this Board with a view to more sympathetic relations and for devising 
means for relieving them of debt. 

We recommend that our Conference assessment for education be fixed at 
$5,000; also that J. W. Helvey and W. L. Killian be appointed as stu- 
dents at Emory and Henry College. We request you to set aside Wednes- 
day night of each annual Conference session as an educational anniversary ; 
also that you authorize J. W. Repass and J. A. H. Shuler to confer with 
the presidents of our Conference Colleges and Academies, and name and 
publish in the Annual the Boards of Visitors for such as are entitled to 
them. We apportion the Educational Assessment as follows :

BOARD OF MISSIONS. 

We gratefully ackno^vledge the blessings of God on our work at home an! 
abroad during the past year. Our general Secretaries report an increase in 
the foreign fields of 881 members, and an unusual interest in our work in 
the Orient. Sunday School pupils have increased 1,326 and 102 new con- 
gregations were organized. For the first time in the history of the Church 
the amount collected on assessments exceeds the assessment itself, and th^ere 
has been a total increase in contributions of $51,370. 

We note, with pleasure, the effort that is being made to increase the cir- 
culation of "Go Forward," and the hearty response which the effort is re- 
ceiving from the Church. We would urge all our pastors to make a diligent 
effort to place this excellent periodical in the homes of all our people. A 
coriimittee was appointed by the General Board of Missions to prepare an 
appeal to the Church, asking for one-half million dollars for Missions next 
year. This would be an increase of $100,0()0. The proportion allotted to 
our Conference would be about $3,000, or sixty (60) shares of $50 each. Let 
us pray and work to the accomplishment of the desired end. 

We especially direct attention to the station plan, as set forth in the an- 
nual report of the Board of Missions, page No. 168, item No-. 2, and we 
urge our Charges and Districts to undertake these specials. 

We look with great favor on the Laymen's Missionary Movement so 
auspiciously launched September 17 and 18 in the city of Knoxville, Tenn. 
Steps were taken for the holding of a large meeting which will be held in 
the city of Chattanooga, Tenn., some time in the month of April next, to 
be attended by 1,000 delegates. We congratulate our Conference on se- 
curing in our midst both these great meetings, and with confidence we ex- 
pect that great good shall come out of them, to us and to the whole Church. 

The Missionary Training School at Nashville, Tenn., is doing much to 
provide the Church with trained workers. We urge our preachers and peo- 
ple everywhere to select competent persons, and encourage them to take ad- 
vantage of the training which this school affords. 

We would urge also upon the young people the importance of Mission 
sludy classes. The knowledge of the facts of Missions is fundamental to 
the intelligent interest in the work. 

One year ago, acting under the law enacted by the General Conference, 
we es/tablished the office of Missionary Evangelist, and selected J. B. Ward 
ai^ our representative. The results of his work demonstrated both the wis- 
dom of the office and our selection of the man to fill it. During the year 
ho has had, in the meetings which he held, more than 60O conversions, 400 
accessions to the Church, and raised approximately $2,000 for the support 
of our Board. Prompted by the experience of the past year, we have de- 
cided to place two evangelists in the field, and nominated to you for recom- 
inendation to the appointment J. B. Ward and D. V. York. These Mission- 
ary evangelists are to work under the direction of the executive committ.'e 
of the Conference Board of Missions. 



THE HOLSTON ANNUAL 59 

It sbal] be their duty to conduct protracted meetings for pastors of our 
(conference, preach, special ]Missionai-y sermons, deliver Missionary lectures 
and addresses, hold institutes in tlie interest of Missions, distribute M's- 
sionary literature, acting as sipeeial agent for "Go Forward," and the bocks 
and pamphlets relating to the work of our Charges, receive contributions for 
Missions, and take collections for the Conference Board of Missions, which 
collections are to be credited as a surplus tO' the Charge in which they are 
taken, and not used to pay assessments. 

The Board of Missions shall pay their expenses and salaries* fixed by th(; 
Board in monthly installments on draft of the Secretary to whom they shall 
report monthly in writing, touching such items as the executive committee 
may require. 

They shall transmit all money received by them to- the Treasurer of the 
Conference Board of Missions after deducting their necessary expense for 
travel, together with a statement of ithe amount so deducted. 

We recommend J. W. Perry for appointment as Conference Missionary 
secretary. We desire to call attention also to by-laws No. 6 and No. S, 
which as revised, read as follows : 

No. 6: The Board shall not appropriate at its annual meeting more 
than 90 per cent of the collection for domestic Missions during the year 
ended, so that a reserve may be kept on hand to' pay early drafts, the ex- 
penses of the Board, and meet emergencies ; an emergency is something 
which oould not reasonably have been foreseen before the annual meeting. 

Nio. 3 : The Board will decline to make appropriations in the absence of 
satisfactory information, and in order to obtain this information will in- 
sist on the blanks furnisbed by the Board, being filled by the Presiding 
Elder for new Missions, and by the Stewards and Presiding Elder of 
Charges to be continued, and returned to the Secretary; 

The tardiness of the Pastors in spending in moneys collected during the 
past year came very near producing serious embarrassment ; but for the 
large collections sent in early in the year by the Conference Evangelist, we 
should have been under the necessity of borrowing money to pay the drafts 
of our Misisionaries. We, therefore, urge again that the collections for 
Missions be taken early in the year, and sent at once to the Treasurer. 

The following action was taken in response to a paper submitted to the 
Board of Missions from the Trustees of Hiwassee College and overtures from 
the Conference Board of Education : "Resolved, That we look with favor 
upon the proposition to establish Missionary Training Schools at Hiwassee 
College and elsewhere if possible, and if at our mid-year meeting it shall 
be made apparent that the surplus accruing froim the collections taken by 
our evangelists will be sufficient, we pledge ourselves to make an appropria- 
tion sufBcient at the least to pay the salai-j' of the President of Hiwassee 
College, and to consider such other enterprises as may seem feasible." 

We have app'ointed S. B. Vaught to represent us in arranging for and 
conducting a summer Institute for Chrisitian Workers, if the other Boards 
shall join in such a movement. S. T. Senter has been elected Assistant Sec- 
retary, and pastors will report to and receive drafts from him. 

The General Boaa'd have asked us for $12,100. The work enterprised by 
this Board cannot be maintained with less than $10,000. These sums we 
have apportioned to the several districts as follows : 

Foreign. Home.

JAMES MAHONEY. 

Few men have lived among us who have wrought better than James Ma- 
honey. Through an eventful life of almost four score years, no stain or 
blemiisih could be found to mar his character. His work was that of a con- 
secrated minister of the gospel of Jesus Christ. Conferring not with "flesh 
and blood," he went forth at the bidding of his Church to hard and trying 
fields of laboa-. Oftentimes his moves were long and exipensive, but no mur- 
mur escaped his lips. He adjusted himself to the new surroundings and 
made the people know that he was their pastor and they were bis flock. 

His preaching was plain and practical, and resulted in leading many souls 
to Christ. Many of our most faithful ministers in this Conference were con- 
verted under his ministry or encouraged to take up the great work of preach- 
ing the gospel to dying men by this humble servant of God. If we were to 
lift out of our midst the direct influence of this good man, we would find 
an army gone and our ranks in the ministry broken. 

He was a true son of the Southland. He was born in Washington county, 
Tenn., December 10, 1828 ; converted August 19, 1846, and joined the Meth- 
odist Episcopal Cliurch, South; licensed to exhort March 8, 1851, and li- 
censed to preach Augaist G, 18.52 ; ordained deacon October 26, 1856 ; joined 
the Holston Conference at Abingdon, A'a., October, 1859; ordained elder 
October 21, 1860, at Asheville, N. C. 

He began his itinerant ministry when our nation was troubled, and man- 
hood was tried. James Mahoney's love for the Southland and the Southern 
cause was never challenged. For it he carried scars to his grave. He could 
say with the apostles : "I have received stripes in my Master's cause.'" 
And tliough this came to him, no harsh w^ords fell from his lips, for he knew 
how the passions of men were stirred by war. 

He was an honest man, in thought, purpose, and life. Such a stern virtue 
gives a man prominence anjwhere. A miarked characteristic of his life was 
love for his brethren. Always sympathetic and kind, the young preaeher.s 
loved him, and his comrades in years honored him. One of his brethren 
who stood shoulder to shoulder with him in the Conference said at his 
burial : "James Mahoney carried his own burdens and bore the burdens 
of others." What a eulogy ! He v/as brave, honest, true, and would have 
been great when "knightwood w^as in flower." 

When not quite twentj'' years old he married Miss Maria McOall, who 
journeyed with him for fifty-eight years, and fell on sleep. To them were born 
nine children— John A., Thomas F., Mrs. M. E. Chandler, Mrs. S. C. Waugh, 
Mrs. R. V. Malloiy, Misses Cynthia, Ellen and Laura, and one daughter 
who died in infancy. 

With his family to care for and educate he traveled the following circuits : 
E;,zabethton, Tenn., 1859-60; St. Clair, Tenn,, 1860-62; Newport, Tenji., 
1862-67; Webster, N. C„ 1867-69; Newport, Tenn., 1869-71; St. Oair, 
Temi. 1871-72; Newport, Tenn., 1872-73; Sulphur Springs, N. C, 1873-74; 
Independence, Va., 1874-76; Elk Creek, Va., 1876-79; Estillville, Va., 1879- 
82; Jefferson, N. C, 1882-85; Independence, Va., 1885-89; Sharon Springs, 
Va., 1889-93; Hillsville, Va., 1893-97; Bristol Circuit, 1897-1901. 

At -the close of his forty-second year h\ the Conference he was given a 
superannuated relation. He bough c a home at Wallace, Va., where he had 
lived four years during Els last pastorate. Here he spent his last days, and 



64 TEE EOLSTON ANNUAL 

was buried. There was no cloud in the eventide, for in the blessed assurance 
of the endless life he fell on sleep. Out from our midst has gone a prince 
in Israel. E. F. Kahle. 



MRS. M. J. CARICO. 

Mary F., daughter of Monroe and Betty Leonard, was born on June 
17, 1881, in GtraysoD. County, Va. ; was married to Major J. Carrico, 
Jan. 19, 1905; died Sept. 25, 1907. She professed religion when only about 
twelve years old. She joined the Christian Church — the church of her par- 
ents. She had intended to join the M. E. Church, South, when at her old 
home this fall, but Providence changed her plans and took her to the 
Church triumphant. She was a true wife and mother. This heart-broken 
pi'eacher says that she urged him to join the Holston Conference, that sha 
v/as willing to brave whatever hardships might come into the itinerant's life. 

She was devoted to the cause of Christ, telling her preacher husband that 
she was praying for his success in winning souls for Christ. She was a 
patient sufferer during her illness. She was ready to go, although she was 
only about 26 years old. She often spoke of her departure from the body. 
The day that she died she was happy all day. Thus ended the life of an 
obedient daughter, a devoted, loving wife, and the happy mother of the little 
baby boy. The writer was often in their home, and can testify to her many 
virtues. JNO. B. Carnes. 



JOSEPH B. DAVIS. 

Joseph B. Davis, son of Jas. W. and Lucy Davis, was born in Smyth 
County, Va., Dec. 11, 1833. He died July 6. 1907. He was man-ied to Miss 
Godsey, of Scott County, Virginia. His wife lived about two years and died 
at Independence, Va. 

Brother Davis was blessed with Christian parents, who trained him in 
early life to love and fear God. He had a high conception of the Chris- 
tian life. He was converted under the ministry of Rev. E. W, Moore, at 
Bethany, Washington County, Va. He was educated at Emory and Henry 
College and was licensed to preach the Gospel in 1869. He was admitted 
into the Holston Conference in 1874, and was ordained deacon the same 
year by Bishop D. S. Doggett at Asheville, N. C. H© was ordained Elder 
at Abingdon in 1887 by Bishop McTyeire. 

As a preacher. Brother Davis was thoughtful and practical. His fields 
of labor were always hard, but not a murmur escaped his lips. We find 
in his writings that he often consecrated himself and all that he had to 
God and His service. He also says : "I will follow the directions of the 
Holy Spirit in all I do and say." He devoted much time to reading the 
Bible and prayer. He was faithful to attend all the services of his Ch^urch. 
He was spiritually minded. He lived a consecrated life. It was his de- 
light and joy to hear of the success of the Kingdom of God. He was 
scrupulously honest. He wrote in his journal : "I will deal honestly with 
all and demand the same of others, and I will give my church the prefer- 
ence." His neighbors all loved him and testify to the good life he lived and 
tEe good he did. 

Brother Davis bequeathed $75 to the work of Domestic Missions in the 
Holston Conference. His death was unexpected — ^he died of hemorrhage of 
the lungs. He sleeiys in the cemetery at Emory and Henry College. 

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

J. .R Walker.

CHARLES H. FOGLEMAN. 

Charles H. Foglemaa, son of David and Lucy Fogleman, was bora 
in Russell County, Va., April 15, 1875. He was converted and joined the 
M. E. Church, South, under the ministi-y of Rev. T. F. Glenn in Septem- 
ber, 1892. He was licensed to preach in the summer of 1893 (probably). 
He wag admitted on trial into the Holston Conference in October, 1902. 
Hir first charge was the Gate City Circuit; his second charge, junior preach- 
er with Dr. Hearon at Lebanon. In the spring of 1904 he was put in charge 
of Tacoma. His third charge was the Cripple Creek Circuit ; his fourth, 
Bourne Memorial, Radford ; his fifth, Gary and Pageton. From Cleveland, 
Tenn., he went promptly to his charge and entered upon Ms work for a 
successful year. His health became precarious soon thereafter. He came 
home Christmas with the hope of recuperating his run-down constitution. 
Later he took up his regular routine of pastoral work. Several cases of 
typhoid fever having developed, he visited and cared for them until he had to 
succumb. On finding himself declining, he came home. Somewhat dis- 
heartened, he became despondent. He felt that his important charge de- 
manded his presence and attention, and at the same time that he could be 
better cared for at home, among relatives and friends. What was thought 
to be a mild case of typhod fever developed into the malignant form. Three 
doctors gave him treatment ; but the disease was too far advanced for medi- 
cal skill, and he grew worse until the end came. Brother Fogleman was 
a young man of good abilit:y. He had acquired a good degree of practical 
skill in building churches and in pastoral work. During his sickness he 
sang, prayed and talked. Feeling at times that he oould not get well, he 
expressed himself as ready to go audi exliorted others to meet him^ in 
heaven. 

He sang with a clear voice, "Will There Be Any Stars in My Crown?" 
He called upon all around him to meet him in heaven. He said, "If I can- 
not get well and live here, I can go to heaven to live." 

He gave an unconverted brother an especial talk, and asked him to meet 
him up yonder. His neighbors speak well of him, and regret very much his 
departure, He said so many things, and spoke at least once as if face to 
face with the Master, saying, "Jesns. Jesus," beckoning with his hand tc 
the one addressed. He was an Odd Fellow, a Woodman, and probably a 
Mason. He did not let his relation to these orders hinder his pastoral 
v/ork, but used his connection vnth. them to facilitate his acquaintance and 
association with his fellow-men. 

He died April 9, 1907, at the home of his parents, in Russell County, 
Va. Having crossed the river, he leaves a father, a mother, two brothers 
and four sisters on this side, and has joined a little brother on the other side. 
That little brother may have been the one with whomi he seemed in com- 
munion during his sickness. 

"Heaven now retains our treasures, 

Earth the lonely casket keeps. 
And the sunshine long to linger 

Where our sainted brother sleeps." 

Farewell, brother, until we meet again. 

S. T. M. MoPlIERSON. 



MRS. J. M. ROMANS. 

Mary Ann Romans was born in Smyth County, Va., July 2, 1838, and 
died at her home near Marion, Va., Oct. 15, 1906. She professed religion 
and joined the Methodist Church in the fourteenth year of her age, un- 



66 THE HOLSTON ANNUAL 

dev the ministry of Rev. J. H. Brunner, and for more than fifty years lived a 
consistent Christian life, so all her neighbors say. 

She was married to Rev. J. M. Romans, Oct. 15, 1857. To them was 
born eleven children — eight sons and three daughters. She was a faithful 
wife and mother, and did what she could to make the world better. Dur- 
ing Brother Roman's itinerant life, she remained on their little farm and 
took care of the children and their home. She had been in poor health for 
several years, but four months before her death she was stricken with paraly- 
sis, and was almost helpless, but patient, and often rejoiced in the love of 
God. So she passed away to be ever with the Lord." 

J. S. W. Neel. 



MRS. J. D. MCALISTER. 

Mrs. Sarah Bruce McAlister, wife of our brother, J. D. McAlister, came 
to her "release" April 23, 3907. She was the daughter of Mr. and Mrs. 
G. S. Bruce of Wytheville. She was born at Abingdon, Nov. 12, 1876. She 
had generous opportunities for development and had thoroughly profited by 
them. She was educated at the Woman's College at Lynchburg and had 
traveled extensively in her own country and abroad. But beyond ail academic 
training more than the graceful accomplishment of a wide observation, 
frhe bore the polish of a splendid home, and the rich harvest of Christian 
virtue and willing discipline of the Methodist Church. 

She was seriously ill at the home of her parents for more than a month, 
and all the skill of physicians and the tender ministration of friends could 
nc"" stay the band of death. In our solicitude we lingered at the throne 
of the God of all grace, trusting that the "angel wiith healing in his wings" 
would come to the rescue. But God's favor came in the guise of mystery, 
as it often does, and she is gone, and her husband and parents are left 
crushed and dazed. Her young life was devoted to the Church ; from her 
earliest youth she was a consistent and helpful member. Aug. 30, 1906, 
she was married to Rev. J. D. McAlister. She was peculiarly adapted to 
the delicate offices that belong to a preacher's home, and especially a home 
of orphaned children. She was reared amid environments of unusual com- 
fort and competency, and those who did not know her nature wondered that 
she should resign the leisure and stability of such conditions and assume 
the responsibility and deprivations of the itinerancy ; but the few knew 
that it was the promptings of a sanctified love. I shall always be glad that 
I was permitted to enjoy the hospitality of that preacher's home. I never 
saw such all-round adaptations. "The husband showed her the deference due 
the true wife, and the children that due the true mother. She was tho 
heart center of the home and without fiat or rule or effort, except in that 
divine orbit that true love always makes, all revolved round her. I felt 
constrained to tell her that she made a "good mother." She thanked me de- 
murely, as if it were so natural and commonplace that it was not worthy 
of observation. The children loved her and found in her warm heart and 
tender miinistry that which has gone out of their lives, and now they are 
bereaved of a mother again. And the husband — how hopelessly he leans 
oa the broad bosom of God ! Very piteous to me is the wail of our brother 
over his broken home. He had such capacity for its enjoyment, it prom- 
ised so much in counsel and comfort to him, and so much in wise and 
warm tutelage of his children. "It was such a dream of perfect happiness 
to me," he said ; and now it has vanished. 

"But we part not as those who have no hope." In her life and from her 
lips she left unquestionable testimony of her destiny. As if in timely antici- 



THE HOLSTON ANNUAL 67 

pation, days before the end came, she put her arms about the neck of her 
distressed mother and told her, lest she should pass away in a state of un- 
consciousness, that she wanted her to know that it was "all right." 

Across the intervening waste of death 

Comes a voice from lips of light ; 
Midst vanished dreams and blasted hopes, 

It brings its tidings, "All is right." 
All seems so wrong and dark and dead ; 

But God is love and God is might ; 
Look up and listen ! Everywhere 

The message seeks you, "All is right." 
Some day will break in radiant joy 

The morning of another night. 
And face to face twin spirits find. 

In fading mystery, "All is right." 

A. N. Jackson".
