J. S. French, President. 

J. R. Brown, Secretary. 



Report No. 2. 

Your Board of Education, to which was referred certain papers con- 
cerning Martha Washington College, after careful and prayerful con- 
sideration makes the following report : 

Whereas, the standards and requirements for high grade college work 
are being constantly raised by both church and State; and, 

Whereas, large endowments are required of these colleges in order 
that they may be recognized as A grade colleges ; and, 

Whereas, the Board of Education deems it impracticable to endow 
both of our colleges whose classification we desire to maintain, there- 
fore be it 

Resolved, That we recommend a union of Emory and Henry and 
Martha Washington Colleges on the following general basis : 

(1) That the Trustees of Martha Washington College be instructed 
to transfer the property of Martha Washington College to Emory and 
Henry College. 

(2) That the Trustees of Martha Washington College be instructed 
to surrender the charter of Martha Washington College and have the 
corporation known as the Trustees of Martha Washington College dis- 
solved. 

(3) That the Trustees of Emory and Henry College be instructed 
to have the charter of Emory and Henry College so amended as that 
Martha Washington College may be operated by Emory and Henry 
College as a Co-ordinate Woman's College in the name of Martha Wash- 
ington College. 

(4) That N. M. Watson, J. C. Orr, W. M. Morrell, S. W. Key, 
E. S. Finney be and are hereby appointed the commission representing 
this Conference for the ensuing year to effect, in conjunction with the 
Board of Trustees of these two schools, this union, and are requested 
to bring it about as quickly as possible. 

J. S. French, President. 
j. R. Brown, Secretary. 



42 HOLSTON ANNUAL 

Report No. 3. 

Your Board of Education takes great pleasure in noting the con- 
tinued successful operation of Emory and Henry College for men, Martha 
Washington College for women, and Hiwassee Junior College, which 
is co-educational. The reports of the Presidents of these colleges show 
a very gratifying attendance. It is the policy of this Board to co- 
operate with the Trustees of these instituions for their progressive en~ 
largement and betterment. The union of Emory and Henry and Martha 
Washington and putting them under one Board of Trustees was not 
undertaken merely to secure their rating as colleges of "A" grade classi- 
fication, but principally in order to secure their further stability and 
enlargement. 

We regret that conditions are such as to make it inopportune to now 
begin the campaign hitherto agreed upon by the Conference to secure 
at least $500,000 for our Conference Schools. We are of the opinion 
that this amount is the minimum present requirement for education in 
Holston, and it is our purpose to begin the campaign to secure it as 
soon as the way is opened to us under the provisions of the great Cen- 
tenary movement inaugurated by the last General Conference. 

We are impressed with the thought that the cause of Christian edu- 
cation was never more important than it is today. The issues of the 
collossal world war are spiritual in their essence. The war may be won 
by the arbitrament of arms commercially and politically and yet be lost 
spiritually. With genuine Christian homes and schools in every nation 
professing to be Christian, recognizing the Lordship of Christ and im- 
parting Christian touch to the heads and the hearts of the young, there 
would have been no appeal to the sword to win political domination 
over the earth. When the war is ended, Christian education alone can 
prevent a recurrence of war in the years to come. We therefore urge 
upon our presiding elders and pastors that they earnestly press the 
claims of the Christian home and the Christian school. 

In response to certain recommendations from the General Secretary 
of Education and the Secretary of the Department of Ministerial Sup- 
ply and Training, we urge our preachers to present these causes to 
our people, and that we join in constant prayer to our Heavenly Father 
to send more laborers into the harvest. 

We call attention to the fact that by order of the General Confer- 
ence all our undergraduates are required to take their Conference course 
of study with the Correspondence School. 

The General Conference calls for a Committee on Religious Educa- 
tion in our State Schools, and we recommend the appointment of the 
following: Dr. J. S. French, Dr. Geo. F. Mellen and J. E. Avent. 

We recommend that the Board of Education be composed of a lay- 
man from each district, an equal number of preachers and the presidents 
of our Conference Schools. 

The Board of Education unanimously voted to accept the recom- 
mendation of the General Secretary of Education and become a mem- 
ber of the General Educational Association of our church. N. M. Wat- 
son was elected to represent us at the next meeting of the Association. 

The Bishop was requested to appoint N. M. Watson Secretary of 
Education for Holston Conference; A. S. Thorn President of Montgom- 
ery Normal College ; E. H. Cassidy Commissioner of Education for 
Holston Conference, to work under the direction of the Board of Edu- 
cation, securing funds to meet the immediate and pressing needs of our 
colleges ; and P. P. Tabor Student at Emory University. 

We endorse the application of Hiwassee College to the General Board 
for an appropriation of $2,000. 

J. S. French, President. 

J. R. Brown, Secretary.

HOLSTON HISTORY. 

As your Historian, I beg leave to report as follows : 

In the course of nature it is possible, if not probable, that I am 
making my last report; and I, therefore, take the liberty of reviewing 
somewhat the historical work of the past. 

You could scarcely estimate the piide I feel in having been chosen 
to this work by so gifted, cultured and saintly a body of men. Dr. 
Cunnyngham had gathered a good deal of material, and I have added 
a great deal more. The work may be considered the product of my 
entire ministerial career from 1850 to the present. During this period 
I have had personal acquaintance with a majority of the preachers and 
laymen mentioned in the five -volumes. My experience as editor of the 
Holston Methodist for about fifteen years, during which time I trav- 
eled in all parts of the territory of the Conference, in efforts to secure 
the "sinews of war," greatly enlarged this acquaintance. I have known 
men who knew Asbury, who, in his turn, knew Wesley. I was, at 
one time, entertained overnight by the Rev. Stephen Brooks, who then 
lived on the Nollichucky river five miles south of Greeneville. Brooks 
was admitted into the traveling connection at Newburn, N. C, in 1789 
(129 years ago), and from that Conference accompanied Asbury to Ken- 
tucky. At the close of the war between the states I formed, at Wabash 
Campground, Giles County, Virginia, the acquaintance of David Eaton, 
a Methodist layman, who at that time was about a hundred years old. 
Eaton told me that, when he was a small boy, he saw John Wesley 
passing along the streets of London in a carriage, and that Wesley looked 
out upon the curious children, who were crowding to see him, and said, 
"God bless you." You thus perceive that, if I am not in the apostolic 
succession, I am in the Wesleyan succession without a missing link. 

Of the preachers that constituted the first Holston Conference — the 
Conference of 1824 (six years before I was born), about forty in num- 
ber — I personally knew more than one third, and by hearsay knew most 
of the others. These volumes are, therefore, not mere compilations, but 
the product in part of personal observation and experience, and came 
welling up out of a stored mind and a warm heart. 

While writing the books I was not in the pastoral work, but I was 
doing a work that will go on preaching hundreds of years, "when this 
poor lisping, stammering tongue lies silent in the grave." Who can cal- 
culate the power of example? Who can estimate the stimulus to holy 



44 HOLSTON ANNUAL 

living of the record of the pious lives of the men and women sketched 
in the pages of these books, and the notes of warning the candid con- 
fessions of departures from the truth and the right, which honesty 
sometimes compelled me to make? "All these things happened unto them 
for ensamples and they are written for our admonition upon whom the 
ends of the world are come." 

So far as I have been able to learn the volumes have met with gen- 
eral favor, and I have heard and read many compliments as to the 
literary execution of the work. Bishop Hoss has spoken highly of its 
literary merits. Even preachers of the M. E. Church have praised it. 
Rev. W. T. Senter says that it is fair and impartial, and Dr. Manker, 
the former editor of the organ of the Holston Conference, M. E. Church, 
said in a conversation with me, "It is a great work." Of course I en- 
joy these flattering opinions; but I have common sense enough to know 
that all the credit I deserve is that of having clearly and honestly 
stated facts, and of having been as fair and impartial as possible with 
a man of my prepossessions; but the chief cause of any excellence the 
work may possess is the greatness, moral and intellectual, of the people 
I have written about ; for the wild and weird hills and mountains of 
the Holston country are evidently the natural abode of energy, cour- 
age, genius and moral worth. 

There has been some objection to the number of volumes, but who 
can find a page or chapter that ought to be omitted? In re-reading the 
books I have often been delighted and thrilled with evidences of the 
richness and brightness of the material with which I have had to deal. 

The head of the Historical Committee, Dr. Sullins, has been taken 
from us, and is, no doubt, now in heaven. He was a loving and lovable 
man. Besides, he was a statesman, and to his shrewdness and un- 
selfish advice is due much of the success we have had in launching the 
enterprise, and guiding it to whatever success it has had. He had his 
well-known limitations, but he was a great and good man. 

Without the salary so generously accorded me and so cheerfully paid 
by the people, which, however, was not granted till there had been a 
few years of writing, and never fully paid — the work of writing could 
not have continued to a finish. Until this grant was made there were 
want and embarrassment. The policy of taking up subscriptions at the 
District Conferences was wise, and was essential to the success of the 
enterprise. Presiding elders and members of these Conferences were 
almost unanimously loyal, unselfish and self-sacrificing in pledging work 
and assuming risks, as well as afterward efficient in carrying out that 
work; I say almost, for I was sorry to know and am sorry to say, that 
at some of the sessions (very few, however) there was a failure to 
take up subscriptions, which fact entailed loss. 

We have sold over ten thousand volumes, but the sale of five times 
that number should have been made to make a financial success of the 
enterprise. It has, therefore, been necessary for the Conference to carry 
it as a burden, your indemnification lying in the moral and spiritual bene- 
fits to be derived from the circulation of the books among the people. 
Yet it should not be forgotten that whatever conduces to the intelligence 
and piety of the membership of the church also increases their readi- 
ness to communicate to their spiritual teachers, "in all good things." 

I have spent much of the ecclesiastical year now closing in selling 
the books, collecting accounts and gathering historical material. I have 
a box containing two or three bushels of clippings, letters and docu- 
ments which I shall leave to the Historical Society, alias the Conference. 
Some of these documents cost me considerably. I also accumulated at 
the beginning of the enterprise a considerable library of ecclesiastical 
and secular volumes to furnish material for much of the history, which 
volumes, tho' costly, and valuable for my use, have scarcely any com- 
mercial value now. 



HOLSTON ANNUAL 45 

I have written several chapters of personal reminiscences, which I 
do not wish published in my lifetime, if at all. Besides, for many years 
I have been making scrapbooks containing choice selections and original 
articles, some of which are historical in their nature. Of these scrap- 
books I have completed nine. I will leave the library and reminiscences 
to my children. 1 have given the scrapbooks to my brother and sisters 
and my children, and will instruct them to allow the Society access to 
them on demand. 

The financial status of the history is as follows : 

Due the Publishing House $ 790.00 

Number of volumes in stock 823 

Retail value of same 1,028.75 

Electrotype plates for the five volumes, value not known, but a 

great saving of the cost of typesetting, if future editions should 

be issued. 

Due from Agents 133.78 

Collected during the year from Oct. 1 to Oct. 1 109.09 

Some accounts charged to profit and loss are not included in the 
amount due from agents. 

Notwithstanding I seem to have had a loud call to the work of the 
history, Satan has occasionally tempted me to wish that I had chosen 
some secular calling, such as law or medicine, or even that of plain 
farmer, so as to have furnished a better support to my family and given 
them a higher social standing; but, even on selfish grounds, I do not 
regret having chosen the calling of a Methodist preacher; for as it is, 
I have had a constant struggle for victory over "the world, the flesh 
and the devil," and I am sure that in a secular calling the chances would 
have been against me ; also my children might not have done so well 
morally and spiritually. But now I am sure that a saintly wife and 
six loved and loving children are awaiting me in heaven, and the four 
surviving are members of the church and professors of religion — one 
of them a Methodist preacher. "And I thank Christ Jesus, our Lord, 
who hath enabled me, for that He hath counted me faithful, putting 
me into the ministry." 

In conclusion, let me remark, as if making my dying statement, that 
I still believe in and enjoy that religion, which has so often rebuked 
my shortcomings, and, again, so often filled my heart with a "peace 
that passeth understanding," and a "jo> unspeakable," even in the midst 
of the sorest trials. 

R. N. Price. 



WAR WORK COMMISSION. 

In compliance with the action of the last General Conference, the War 
Work Commission for Holston Conference has been organized with Dr. 
I. P. Martin, President; J. E. Wolfe, Secretary; and an Executive Com- 
mittee composed of the President, I. P. Martin, J. E. Wolfe, F. A. Car- 
ter, Edgar Lotspeich, C. K. Wingo. 

Dr. O. E. Watson, Secretary of the General Commission on War Work, 
met with us, and made report of the amounts paid by the districts of 
the Conference, on the War Work Emergency Fund, as follows :

The General Office at Washington, D. C, asks that the balance due 
be sent in at once, because the need is great. The cause lies close to 
our hearts and all that we ask is that it be presented to the church and 
the response will be insistent and adequate. 

After the present assessments are paid the War Work Fund in the 
future will be collected through the Centenary campaign. So we ask 
that these balances be collected and sent to Mr. John Victor, Lynch- 
burg, Va., at once.

SABBATH OBSERVANCE. 

That the Sabbath is a holy day and is to be observed as such by all 
of God's people is one of the fundamentals of our faith. So important 
was it in the Divine economy that our God included it in the Ten Com- 
mandments given amid the thunders of Mt. Sanai for the moral govern- 
ment of the world. 

The proper observance of the Sabbath was one of the very fundation 
stones upon which our forefathers purposed to build our nation. They 
believed that the sacred observance of this day was essential to our 



HOLSTON ANNUAL 49 

highest welfare; that if we were to expect God's blessings upon us we 
must be obedient to this commandment as well as the others in the 
Decalogue. So reverence for the Sabbath as a holy day has been handed 
down to us as an inheritance from our fathers. 

But we fear our nation is falling from this high standard set by 
them. One encroachment after another has been made upon the Sab- 
bath in our own generation until today we are guilty of many violations 
of the sanctity of this holy day that our fathers never dreamed oi, 
Baseball, the moving picture show, the automobile, excursions, the the- 
atre, and other things have made considerable inroads on the Sabbath 
within recent years. And it has been done so gradually that we hardly 
perceived the dangers until now we find that great harm has been done. 
And what the final outcome will be we hesitate to predict. So serious 
has the situation become that recently one of our great secular period- 
icals, Leslie's Weekly, has warned our nation that we must for our own 
good return to the old Sabbath. Now, when a well-known secular paper 
takes time to preach to us on the matter of Sabbath observance it is 
high time that the church shall take notice. 

We would, therefore, urge our ministry to give attention to this se- 
rious situation and to arouse our people to a full sense of the danger 
threatening our great nation through the increasing disregard of the 
sanctity of the Sabbath-day. We would urge them to preach on the 
theme of Sabbath observance from time to time, specifying in detail 
the various ways in which the day is being desecrated. We believe the 
experiment of gasless Sundays recently tried out was a moral benefit 
to our people, and it would be well for us from the pulpit to persuade 
our people to continue it for purely moral reasons. This is only one 
of a number of ways in which we can urge better observance of the 
Sabbath. Without any question our nation needs a new conscience on 
this question ; we are in peril of losing the Sabbath as a holy and sacred 
day, and unless the church speaks out in no uncertain terms we fear 
it is doomed. 

F. A. Carter, President. 

Carrou, Varner, Secretary. 



BOOKS AND PERIODICALS. 

The literature of the Methodist Episcopal Church, South, is the equal 
of that prepared by any other church or publishing house in the land, 
and in many respects superior to most of it. It is better adapted to 
the needs of our own people than that which may be procured from 
any other source. 

While the present is a progressive age, when much reading is being 
done, especially that which pertains to the war, there is great danger 
of feeding upon unwholesome literature and of neglecting the Standards 
of our church. Wesley's Sermons and his Journals, Clark's, Benson's 
and Wheedon's Commentaries ; Stephens' and McTyeire's Histories of 
Methodism, and the History of our own Conference by Dr. Price are 
not back numbers. These, with other books of a like nature, are worthy 
of a place in the homes of all of our people. A Methodist home with- 
out a late edition of our Discipline should consider itself a back num- 
ber. No preacher should think himself too good to try to put the same 
in such homes. 

We rejoice at the exhibit made by our great Publishing House at 
Nashville and of the branch houses located at Dallas, Texas, and at 
Richmond, Va. But at this particular time they need our patronage. 



50 HOLSTON ANNUAL 

Too much cannot be said for the Christian Advocate. Its circu- 
lation ought to be doubled before January 1. It can easily be done, if 
all of the pastors of our church will press its claims. It is a reproach 
to our whole church that so valuable a periodical as the Quarterly Re- 
view is published at a loss. We urge all of our people to give these 
periodicals their support. We recommend, with equal earnestness, the 
Missionary Voice, the Epworth Era, and all of our Sunday School lit- 
erature. 

Our report would be incomplete without renewed and continued in- 
dorsement of the Midland Methodist. No other department of our 
church work is more deserving of our people's support than our own 
Conference organ. We regret that our publisher is under the necessity 
of economizing to such an extent that the editor can give only partial 
oversight to the paper. We long for the time to come when our organ 
can have the full time of the editor; but knowing that the present ar- 
rangement is the best and only thing that can be done, we pledge our- 
selves anew to its support. It is indispensable to our work as a Con- 
ference. We congratulate the publisher, O. W. Patton, and the editor, 
Dr. J. A. Burrow, that the subscription list is constantly growing. As 
nothing else popularizes a Conference organ so much as brief letters 
from our pastors, we recommend that all of our preachers be requested 
to write more frequently. Questionable advertisements are often in the 
way of securing subscriptions.

CHURCH EXTENSION. 

We are able to report that the quadrennium, now closing, has been 
the best in the history of organized Church Extension, both for the 
General and Conference Boards. The Loan Fund of the General Board 
has gone well beyond the million dollar mark. Our Conference Loan 
Fund, the Sullins-Price-Richardson Fund, now amounts to $8,000.00. 
During the quadrennium a number of embarrassing church debts have 
been settled with the assistance of the General and Conference Boards. 

The assessment for the ensuing year is $11,370.00, and will be ap- 
portioned to the various districts along with other benevolences. 

Donations and loans are made to churches and parsonages as fol- 
lows:

BIBLE BOARD. 

The worth of the Holy Scriptures to dying men was never so ap- 
parent as it is today; nor has there ever been a period in the history 
of the race in which the Bible was so highly appreciated. Men every- 
where, almost, are studying the sacred page with unwonted interest. 

Waiving the activity of enlarged Bible study in the churches and 
at home, the preceding statement applies to heathen lands with a force 
that is even startling. Furthermore, it is with peculiar delight that your 
committee notes that in the armies of the Allies and in their mighty 
navies the "Good Book" is welcomed and studied to great profit. To 
these brave men the American Bible Society has sent more than two 
million copies. 

The assessment this year was $1,000.00; $982.00 was collected. We 
suggest the same assessment for next year, and its apportionment among 
the several districts as heretofore. 

Of the fund set apart for "home use," $175.61 is yet on hand, and we 
instruct our Treasurer, Rev. F. M. Buhrman, to turn it over to the 
Treasurer of the new Board. 

W. S. Lyons, Chairman. 

James I. Cash, Secretary. 



EPWORTH LEAGUE. 

The church has taken hold of the League work in a more encour- 
aging way than heretofore. In a financial way, we now take our place 
with the other great forces of the church, being recognized in the budget 
made up for general church work. 

The second Sunday in May has been definitely set apart as League 
Day. 

The Leagues are coming nobly to the work of planning for the great 
Centenary drive, along with other departments of the church. A goal 
has been fixed at $350,000 during the five years, and an increase in vol- 
unteer workers of 200. The accomplishment of these' tasks will call for 
careful planning and much consecration. 

Just as the church has always done, she must depend on the leader- 
ship of the preachers. In cultivating these young people and training 
them for service, we will reap some of our richest rewards. 

Let us, brethren, pledge ourselves anew to these high and holy tasks. 

A. B. Hunter, Secretary. 



HOLSTON ANNUAL 53 



SPIRITUAL STATE OF THE CHURCH. 

The church is the body of Christ; He is the head of the body. The 
spirit is the life of the church. This report has to do with the state 
of the spirit or life of the church. By the activities of the body we 
measure the vitality and energy that is within. 

The reports of the Presiding Elders show that there have been, ap- 
proximately, 6,000 professions and reclamations within Holston Confer- 
ence ; and as a better index into the real spiritual state, they report 5,200 
additions to the church. For these who have come within our pales, we 
are profoundly thankful to God. 

In these days of peril and stress we are led to see, as perhaps never 
before, the need of an abounding spiritual life. As the arrows of death 
fly thick over all the earth, men, as individuals, our church, and our 
great nation are calling upon God, as did Israel of old, for a more power- 
ful infilling of spirit energy, and faith is taking hold of the promises 
of God. 

The giant enemies of the Kingdom, such as intemperance, Sabbath 
breaking in automobiles, the fiery flare of unwholesome districts in the 
cities, the indifference to the gospel, social giddiness and frivolity, all 
seem tottering to their fall, under the providence of Him who "moves 
in a mysterious way his wonders to perform." 

We have lived to see our great President — leader of the earth's great- 
est nation — request his people to put in one day in concerted prayer to 
Abraham's God ; we saw a nation on its knees ; we have seen it arise 
in a new strength and go forth to win without the loss of a single battle. 
As our nation has done since the day of prayer, as he requested, we 
urge that the church relax not its work. 

Revivals, as Methodists know them, are vitally essential to the on- 
ward progress of our church. It is our business to save souls, and if 
we fail to do this, our glory will most surely depart. Ichabod will be 
written on the lintels of our doors. 

Therefore, be it Resolved, That we make the strongest effort during 
the coming year to hold a revival at every appointment in our charges, 
and put forth every energy to make it the greatest year of our history. 

Second : We urge that each pastor select and appoint a competent 
Evangelistic Committee, as provided for by the Discipline, to co-operate 
with them in evangelistic effort. 

J. A. H. ShulER, Chairman. 

J. S. W. NEEE, Secretary. 



K 

THE SUNDAY SCHOOL BOARD. 

Despite the abnormal conditions growing out of the war, the Sunday 
School work of the Conference has enjoyed a year of progress. We 
even dare to hope that when the reports of the pastors are tabulated, 
they will show a gain in membership. 

The report of the Field Secretary shows the following facts: 

Schools organized during year 6 Wesley Bible classes enrolled 30 

Schools assisted by the Board 10 Membership 627 

Institutes conducted 98 Books sold 163 

Addresses delivered 221 Orders taken for supplies 164 

Sermons preached 25 Letters sent out 1,576 

Teacher train, classes enrld— 21 Programs, etc., sent out 15,476 

Membership 289 



54 HOLSTON ANNUAL 

The average grade of schools for this year, tested by the standard 
of efficiency, is 61 1-1 per cent., as against 55 1-10 per cent, last year. 

Since the denominations composing the Sunday School Council are 
uniting in a great teacher-training drive, and since the date for holding 
our Conference fell in the midst of the time for this drive, it was 
deemed wise to postpone the drive in Holston to a later date. The 
month of January has been agreed upon. We therefore urge our pre- 
siding elders and pastors to take this work into consideration and prepare 
for the drive, and press it until there is a teacher-training class or one 
or more persons taking the course by correspondence, in every Sunday 
School in Holston. 

The General Sunday School Board having assumed 10 per cent, of 
the entire Centenary fund, your Conference Board accepts 10 per cent, of 
the amount assigned to Holston Conference, and pledges to the Cen- 
tenary Committee their co-operation in the work of the Centenary. 
But if the Sunday Schools are to raise this amount, and at the same 
time promote the amount of missionary Education which should be put 
into this campaign, we will be largely dependent on the presiding elders 
and the pastors in seeing that the Missionary Committee, the monthly 
program and monthly missionary offering are appointed and observed in 
every school. 

We, your Board, feel that we should call attention to the fact that 
throughout the entire country reports show a loss in Sunday School en- 
rollment, and urge our pastors and superintendents to counteract this 
tendency. 

We also wish to emphasize again the importance of pressing the 
claims of Christ, as a personal Saviour upon the boys and girls, who, 
in the providence of God, look to us as their religious leaders. 

We commend the work of Rev. J. A. Baylor in providing plans and 
suggestions for the building and remodeling of small churches, in order 
to fit them to the needs of modern Sunday School work, and urge pas- 
tors and people to prepare at the earliest possible date such equipment 
as may be required, in giving not only graded instruction, but graded 
worship also. 

We commend the work of Rev. S. S. Boyer, Field Secretary, and 
respectfully request Bishop Denny to re-appoint him to this office for 
the ensuing Conference year. 

L. W. Pierce, Chairman.

COMMISSION ON FINANCE. 

After making diligent effort to secure full information in regard to 
all the Conference interests, having before us representatives of all the 
Boards charged with the administering of funds, and also each of the 
Presiding Elders, we find that the sum of $56,200 will be required to 
provide for the same. These causes, with the amounts assessed, follow : 

Conference Missions $18,000 Superannuate End. Fund $2,000 

Conference Claimants 14,000 Holston History 1,200 

Conference Education 16,000 Orphanage 1,000 

Sunday Schools 3,000 Epworth Leagues 1,000 

We have received from the General Commission on Finance an assess- 
ment allotted to the Holston Conference amounting to $59,840. These 
two amounts aggregate $116,040. This sum total is divided between the 
two assessments according to the following percentage ratio : 

General Assessment .5157% 

Conference Assessment .4843% 

The distribution of these amounts to the several districts of the Con- 
ference is as follows: 

District — General. 

Abingdon $6,219.00 

Big Stone Gap 5,208.00 

Bluefield 5,441.00 

Chattanooga 7,504.00 

Cleveland 4,667.00 

Knoxville 7,735.00 

Morristown 5,802.00 

Radford 5,343.00 

Tazewell 5,960.00 

Wytheville 5,960.00 

The per centage ratio for the distribution of the amount assessed upon 
the Conference by the General Commission on Finance has been fixed by 
that Commission. The Discipline charges the Conference Commission 
on Finance with the duty of determining the per centage of the total sum 
assessed, and of the receipts therefrom, which shall be allotted to each 
of the Conference interests represented, subject to the approval of the 
Conference. We accordingly have fixed the following per centage ratio 
for each of these interests: 

Sunday Schools .0534% Epworth Leagues .0178% 

Conference Education .2847% Orphanage .0178% 

Conference Missions .3203% Holston History .0213%

DISTRICT CONFERENCE RECORDS. 

Record books for Bluefield, Morristown, Radford and Wytheville 
Districts are all right. 

Abingdon District uses a loose-leaf record book, which, considering 
the fact that these books are not permanently kept in one place, and by 



56 HOLSTON ANNUAL 

one person, is a very loose method, which we as a Conference, would 
not commend. As an illustration of this attendant uncertainty, we note 
that Supplement "A" has been lost out, the entire page, or pages, being 
gone. The Abingdon District minutes are not signed by the President. 

Big Stone Gap minutes are not signed, and do not show who were 
present at the Conference. 

Chattanooga record omits the official roll. 

Cleveland District had no book at the seat of this Conference. 

Knoxville District's book has no official roll, no list of Committees, 
and does not show who were present. 

Tazewell's record omits the official roll, and has the supplements re- 
corded without reference to order, and are not properly marked.

BOARD OF MISSIONS. 

In spite of burdensome and distracting war conditions, the cause of 
missions has not suffered. Whether we speak of the quadrennium or 
the year just closing, this is equally true. This is also true of the par- 
ent Board, whose income from all sources was $1,525,531 — an increase of 
more than a quarter of a million dollars over the previous year. The 
Board has been able to overcome depreciation in exchange in some of 
our mission fields and other disturbing conditions brought about by the 
war, and save itself from ruinous retrenchments, and retire all its in- 
debtedness ; and also to meet the added financial strain of inaugurating 
the great Missionary Centenary celebration. 

Conditions in Mexico are improving; our new mission on the Belgian 
Congo in Africa has been firmly planted and is prosperous. Any oppor- 
tunity in China grows by leaps and bounds, while our work in Korea, 
Japan, Cuba and Brazil is embarrassing us by growth and development. 
Our work in the homeland, though showing very gratifying progress, 
has been seriously handicapped for lack of an adequate income. 

If we turn from this wider to the more restricted field of our own 
Conference the prospect is equally encouraging. The reports from the 
charges receiving appropriations from the Board, in the work done and 
the results realized will compare favorably with the other charges of the 
Conference. Hiwassee College is full to overflowing and is growing in 
popularity and usefulness with each passing year. No better returns are 
realized from any investment made by the Board of Missions than from 
its appropriations to Hiwassee College. 

The total income of the Board for the year just closing is $55,900.27, 
an increase of $10,497.58 over the previous year, of this $4,110.28 was 
on assessments and $6,387.28 was in specials. Total specials for the 
present year being $14,574.33, for the previous year $8,127.05. 

We note with pleasure the changed and simplified plan of handling 
the benevolent funds of the Conference ; this plan will destroy compe- 
tition and insure co-operation between all Conference and Connectional 
interests, while the financial commission standing in exactly the same 
relation to all the Boards, and their interests will serve as an Equaliza- 
tion Board protecting and securing the interests of each and all. The 
Every Member Canvass and the use of the Duplex envelopes, facilitat- 
ing systematic and proportionate giving, has demonstrated its right to a 
permanent place in the economy of our church. We most earnestly urge 
the adoption and use of these devices by all. 

In the providence of God the Missionary Centenary has come at this 
critical hour calling as it does upon our American Methodism to take 
stock of the past and to face in an adequate way the task of a new 
Century. Our General Conference, our Bishops, and the leaders of Amer- 
ican Methodism have given it their hearty endorsement Your Board 
shares this conviction and adds its endorsement by a unanimous vote. 
The facts, that by a unanimous vote the Conference has accepted the 
financial goal of $1,129,143.53, along with the goals for the fellowship of 
intercession and stewardship covenants ; and with these have endorsed 
and accepted the entire program of the Centenary, and have set apart 
the first Wednesday of each month as Centenary Prayer Meeting; that 
they have given us a Commission of chosen men and women for the 
Conference Commission, that they have set apart one of their own num- 
ber as Missionary Secretary and Field Agent of the Centenary cele- 
bration, providing for his salary and expenses without touching the as- 
sessments for missions, are overwhelming evidence that we mean to put 
it over. The salary is fixed at $3,000 and expenses not to exceed $1,000.

HOLSTON ANNUAL 



The cause of evangelism was never more upon our hearts and the 
prospects for a Conference-wide revival were never brighter than at the 
present hour. R. A. Kelly, J. M. Carter, C. Q. Counts, W. G. Delp 
and R. B. Piatt, Jr., were elected as a Committee on Evangelism, and 
we nominate R. A. Kelly as Conference Secretary of Evangelism. The 
Committee on Evangelism nominate, and we endorse, the nomination of 
the following preachers as Conference evangelists: J. J. Clark, E. L. 
Addington, and Bascom Waters. We nominate J. M. Carter for ap- 
pointment as Conference Missionary Secretary and Field Agent for the 
Centenary campaign, and J. E. Lowry for appointment as President of 
Hiwassee College. 

Last year we made appropriations to eighty-six pastoral charges ; 
twelve of these have either become self-sustaining or have been absorbed 
by reorganization. We have established eight new missions, making the 
total number receiving appropriations from this Board for the coming 
year eighty-two, as follows :

MEMOIRS. 



MRS. E. E. HOSS. 

Born in Blacksburg, Virginia, January 24, 1853, the daughter of 
Edward R. and Mary Sessler Clark, christened Abbie Belle, in early life 
a member of the Methodist Church, educated in the Moravian Academy, 
Salem, North Carolina — notable for its distinguished alumnae — married 
in Knoxville, Tennessee, on November 19, 1872, to the Reverend Elijah 
Embree Hoss, whose subsequent election as our Bishop made him not 
less but rather more a beloved member of this Conference ; henceforth 
journeying with him through the lights and shadows of itinerant ex- 
perience, at her home in Muscogee, Oklahoma, in the twilight hush of 
June 14, 1918, her spirit returned to the God who gave it, leaving still 
on pilgrimage to "a better country, that is heavenly," him by whose side 
she had walked for nearly half a century; two sons, E. E. Hoss, Jr., 
of Birmingham, Alabama; Dr. Sessler Hoss, of Muscogee, Oklahoma; 
and one daughter, Mrs. Mary Headman, of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. 

From her grandfather, Mark Sessler, a sturdy character with whom 
she was closely associated in childhood, it may well be that, both by in- 
heritance and assimilation, she acquired the habit of independent thought 
and an ineradicable repugnance for pretense in. any form, and especial 
disgust for the cant of religiosity. Respect and confidence were freely 
accorded the practioner of religion, but positively refused the pietistic 
professor thereof, despite the endorsement of others. 

Where she thought tact was justified by occasion, it was discreetly 
employed, as when in her judgment other occasion cal!ed for direct re- 
sponse, it was given without semblance of ambiguity. Spurning the 
tricks of secret diplomacy and disdaining the cover of camouflage, Mrs. 
Hoss, walking in the open and unafraid, challenged danger as only God's 
great hearts do. Impatient of moral cowardice in virtuous guise, its mas- 
querade was greeted with stinging laughter and its swollen pretensions 
punctured with the rapier of wit. 

A lofty idealism and simple practicality were so indissolubly blended 
in the personality of Sister Hoss, that the isolated sphere of thought 
and action which she occupied was so far removed from the ordinary 
walks and ways of life as must have left her oftentimes burdened with 
a sense of loneliness which would have daunted a less resolute spirit. 

Where most of us manifest what may be regarded as pardonable 
pride in the display of our single talent, this woman gifted with aston- 
ishing versatility wrought successfully in many and varied departments 
of human endeavor, without the semblance of boasting. She accepted 
each responsibility as a matter of course and refused only to be idle or 
triflingly employed. It may be doubted if many of even her closest 
friends realized how great and how dissimilar were these demands and 
the obligations they imposed. Wife to one of our brethren who was 
successively and successfully pastor, professor and president of our 
chief seats of learning, editor of our most important church paper, our 
representative in foreign lands, and bishop of the strenuous type of 
Asbury — the bare suggestion of these facts reveals the unwelcome pub- 
licity and stressful emergencies to which few women are subjected. And 
yet, with pressing household cares — often and for long periods alone — 
the problems of domestic science were skillfully solved, and her hus- 



64 HOLSTON ANNUAL 

band safely trusted in her to manage all business affairs, even though 
separated from her by the diameter of the earth. 

Strong where most are weak; straightforward where most trim their 
sails to catch the deceitful breezes of popularity; sincere where most 
find it easier to dissemble — in a word, courageous where most are cow- 
ardly, her answer to dissent was prompt appeal to that court of last 
resort, before whose bar integrity of purpose nullifies ex parte verdicts ; 
where caprice of temperament and fallibility of judgment are disqualified 
as witnesses against us, and chicanery that here so often defeats the 
ends of impartial justice, is effectually unmasked. 

When in her young womanhood, a grave university professor of 
Knoxville spoke of Miss Clark as "queenly," his characterization was as 
true as it was concise. With features, form and carriage in harmony 
with rare mental powers; gifted with artistic and musical ability of a 
high order, she was a distinguished person in any circle, and needed no 
crown to complete her attractiveness or to compel attention. Royally en- 
dowed for a brilliant career of social conquest, by the grace of God she 
chose a life of human service. By every outward token, aristocratic, her 
altruistic ministries to the lowliest proclaimed her fealty to the democratic 
principles of the doctrine of Christ. Whom pharisaic priests and levites 
passed by, she stooped to comfort, uplift and save, nor questioned whether 
they suffered from their own or others' fault. Neither time, nor place, nor 
circumstances diverted her from the even tenor of this Christly way. Both 
at home and abroad, convicts, the sick, suffering and friendless poor, 
whether white or black, were alike the objects of her unselfish service to 
the limit of her life. She was an expert in discovering needs unrecognized 
by those of less generous spirit. The suffering of the newsboys of Mus- 
cogee, on their daily rounds in cold, inclement weather, excited sympa- 
thetic attention, and she called them in to be warmed and fed. Love re- 
sponding to love, these boys, after her decease, united in a public testi- 
monial of bereavement and a colored family placed a wreath of flowers on 
her grave. Taking the Master's "Inasmuch" as the measure of eternal 
reward, the saintliest of us may well covet the greeting this our sister of 
charity received. 

"What time the white sail of the Soul 
Had rounded the misty cape, the promontory Death." 

The closing years of her life were uncomplainingly spent in painful 
waiting for an inevitable issue as to the life that now is, and with calm 
assurance as to the better life beyond. The trial of her faith in promises 
divine wrought patience ; patience, experience ; and experience, a larger 
hope and longing for the rest that remains to the people of God. Walking 
with quiet confidence in the Valley of the Shadow of Death, and fearing 
no evil, she fell on sleep — 

"Whose waking is supremely blest." — James A. Lyons. 



MRS. JOHN W. BROWNING. 

Susie Wheeler was born in Aurora, 111, May 14, 1867, her father being 
a native of Bristol, England. Her mother Millie Hill, was born in Illi- 
nois. Mr. and Mrs. C. J. Wheeler moved to Tennessee while Susie was 
but a child. Her father died a number of years ago ; her mother two years 
ago. 

Susie joined the church while a little girl and was always a devoted 
Christian. The writer knew her in his first charge, Cherry Street Mis- 
sion, Chattanooga. She had left her home on the Cumberland Mountain 
and come to the city to join the great and growing army of bread- 



HOLSTON ANNUAL 65 

winning women as a stenographer in a business house. She boarded 
with her cousin, Mr. Dan Wheeler, and his excellent wife. She was 
never anything but modest, gentle, sensible, and good — a faithful, devoted 
Christian woman. 

Rev. John W. Browning, at Cherry Street Church, Chattanooga, met 
his future wife. I can never forget that wonderful wedding trip to 
Crab Orchard, on top of the Cumberland Mountain. Several of us ac- 
companied Brother Browning and drove from Rockwood through the 
golden glory of a typical September day — slowly but happily up the 
autumnal mountain. The wedding occurred that night, September 3, 
1890. The merry company, the linking of two strong young lives, and 
the peculiarly charming circumstances of that happy hour have always 
been a delightful memory to me. Rev. James R. Hunter, of the Holston 
Conference, now in the better land, was one of Brother Browning's at- 
tending friends. The next day dawned in autumnal beauty. The ex- 
hilarating drive in surries and buggies down the mountain-side, the happy 
hearts, the bright promise of sunny skies to bride and groom all linger 
still in my recollection. 

She proved a preacher's worthy helpmeet. A letter from Brother 
Browning says she never complained at any appointment, and never made 
an imprudent remark among the members. Her loyalty and devotion 
kept her husband from leaning toward secular position when times were 
hard and open doors temptingly beckoned. 

"Women — rich and poor, black and white — would gather and cry at 
every place we left," writes her husband. She felt herself very imperfect, 
but really lived the Christian life beautiful. Her children now rise up 
and call her blessed. 

One child, Mary Grace Browning, died and is buried in Chattanooga. 
Two married daughters, Mrs. W. C. Huddleston and Mrs. A. R. Mc- 
Cammon, live in Maryville, Tenn. One son, Fletcher W., is in the United 
States Navy. Claude Hunter, another son, with two other sisters, Clara 
Mildred and Virginia Kent, constitute the broken home circle. Two 
brothers, C. J. and Daniel Wheeler, live at Crab Orchard; two sisters, 
Mrs. Mai Crowe, of Knoxville, and Mrs. W. L. Patton, of Crab Orchard; 
a half-brother, Robt. Renfro, lives in Pennsylvania, and a half-sister 
in Atlanta, Ga. 

The necessity of a surgical operation took Mrs. Browning from the 
parsonage at Graham to a sanitarium in Bluefield, W. Va., where 
December 16, 1917, she fell asleep, triumphantly unafraid in death as in 
life. At Maryville, Tenn., in our church, on a winter day, the friends 
of a quadrennium of service there came to our church to pay loving 
tribute to her memory. Rev. T. C. Schuler and the writer conducted the 
service. Under a winding sheet of snow we laid her body gently to 
rest, but came away rejoicing that her fair spirit was somewhere else in 
God's realm immortal. — James A. Burrow. 



MRS. G. M. MORELAND. 

Sarah Lamar Mackey was born at Edgefield, S. C, October 22, 1863, 
and died at Lenoir City, Tenn., February 18, 1918. She was married to 
Rev. G. M. Moreland June 16, 1891. She was the mother of nine chil- 
dren; three died in infancy; the six living children are all religious and 
are members of their mother's church. 

Mrs. Moreland was converted in early womanhood. Her religious life 
for the first years was a steady, sane, wholesome growth ; but the last 
three years it was positive and often intense; she was much given to Bible 
study and to prayer; she often sought her husband's mind as to the topics 
of his sermons, and read and commented upon all the passages of Scrip- 



66 HOLSTON ANNUAL 

ture bearing upon them, and then prayed that he might stand before his 
congregation as the veritable messenger of God. The family altar, instead 
of waning, steadily grew in interest and power with the passing years; as 
she looked out upon the commercial tendencies of the age, she saw the 
greater need of the family altar, and with all the earnestness of her soul 
joined her husband in making their home a throne of spiritual life. 

Mrs. Moreland joined the Holston Conference with her husband in 
October, 1891. Yes, essentially she joined the Conference just as com- 
pletely as did her husband. She knew her husband's mind — she knew it 
before they were married — and told him plainly that she was ready to 
go with him anywhere in his life's work; and for twenty-seven years she 
proved the sincerity of her statement; she never wavered as an itinerant 
preacher's wife ; her husband's appointments were her appointments ; his 
congregations were hers to love and to serve. Surely blessed are the faith- 
ful itinerant wives of the itinerant preachers, for theirs is the larger sacri- 
fice. It is pre-eminently woman's nature to love a home — a home of 
material beauty — a home richly furnished within and outwardly adorned 
with fruits and flowers. 

In Mrs. Moreland we have the Master's pictures of wife and mother. 
Wife — the devoted wife! the loyal wife! the helpmeet! they twain were 
one ! And whether the parsonage was costly and cosy or sometimes only 
"four walls and a roof above, it was cramful of cosy joy!" Mother! 
The mother of nine children ! Three in the upper and six in the nether 
world ; but the six in the one world as religious as the three in the other 
world, and so largely due to the influence of mother! Was she a success? 
What, after all, is success? Earthly weights and measures are often con- 
fusing and misleading, but placed upon God's scales, and into the sealed 
measures of eternal verities, success is the making of human lives after 
the likeness of God — godliness — godlikeness ; these are the only finished 
products that will abide ; therefore the parents who bring up their chil- 
dren in the nurture and adminition of the Lord and send them out to bless 
the world have made a real success of life and a glorious success in life.

CHARLES T. CARROLL. 

Charles Thomas Carroll was born Feb. 27, 1842, in Cabell County, W. 
Va. He was converted and joined the Methodist Episcopal Church, South, 
in 1856, and was licensed to preach two years later, when he was 16 years 
old. He enlisted in the Confederate Army in 1861, in which he served 
as a chaplain. He was a prisoner of war at Johnson's Island for twenty- 
two months. 

He was admitted on trial into the Holston Conference at Marion, Va., 
in September, 1865 ; he and Rev. J. Tyler Frazier constituting the entire 
class. Bishop Early presided at that Conference, and Rev. James W. 
Dickey was secretary. In 1867 he was admitted into full connection, and 
was ordained Deacon. Two months later — December 18, 1867 — he was 
united in marriage to Miss Lizzie E., daughter of Dr. Milton and Mrs. 
Priscilla Shields, Rev. Grinsfield Taylor officiating. Mrs. Carroll was a 
sunny-spirited woman, who brightened his itinerant service, and enlivened 
every circle where she moved. Her death, several years ago, was won- 
drously triumphant. 

In 1869 he was ordained Elder. His appointments were as follows : In 
1865, Bristol Circuit ; 1866, Knoxville ; 1867, Bristol ; 1868-9, Chattanooga ; 
1870-1, Chattanooga District; in 1872 he was on the sick list; 1873-4, 
Asheville; 1875-6-7, Morristown ; 1878, sick; 1879-80, Rutledge Circuit; 
1881-2-3-4, Morristown District; 1885-6-7-8, Asheville; 1889, Broad Street, 
Knoxville; 1890-1-2, Chattanooga District; 1893-4, Morristown District; 



HOLSTON ANNUAL 67 

1895-6-7-8, Knoxville District ; 1899, sick ; a year or two on the Morristown 
Circuit, and his health became too feeble for further work. From that 
time until the end he was on our honor roll of superannuates. 

In an editorial in "The Midland Methodist" Rev. T. C. Schuler, the 
editor, once said: 

"Dr. Carroll's courage was completely tested in East Tennessee in 
the stormy days of the Reconstruction period. As pastor and presiding 
elder, he went to his work and stayed by it when it required courage of 
the highest order to go and stay. When Southern Methodists were being 
whipped by renegate so-called 'Federalists,' Dr. Carroll never shrank from 
his duty. His work in those stormy days abides, and he has lived to see 
the Methodism which he loved and defended rise out of the ashes of its 
burned homes to become the largest, most influential, and dominant church 
of that part of the country. The value of his tireless labors and wise 
leadership in those days will never be known until the account is fully 
rendered in the eternal world." 

This tribute from our Conference organ was well deserved. 

Dr. Carroll was a Southern gentleman of the old school. His personal 
appearance was always the perfection of neatness. His habits of life were 
likewise in order. His tongue was chaste, and his heart was pure. Scrupu- 
lously conscientious in all his dealings, he was the soul of integrity. His 
opinions on all matters of public and church interests were always pro- 
nounced. He never failed to have deep convictions, and to give the freest 
utterance to the same. He loved books, and delighted to discuss the deep 
things of theology and of philosophy. His loyalty to the faith of the 
fathers, and his consuming zeal for the Church which he loved as his 
life, were known to all who knew him. 

It was a delight to have Dr. Carroll in the pew as an attentive listener. 
His presence was a great help to the preacher. The people at East Park 
Avenue, Knoxville, honored him highly and loved him devotedly. When 
physically strong enough he delighted to preach. This last year found him 
suffering from a serious heart trouble, which prostrated him often, and 
warned him of the end. He understood its meaning well, and bore himself 
life the Christian soldier he was. On his last visit to Morristown, he gave 
specific direction to an undertaker, so that when the end came, they all 
knew his wishes. After a Saturday evening's drive in an automobile, July 
13, 1918, with members of his daughter's family in Knoxville, he went up 
to his room, and retired in usual condition. It was not long until he came 
to the head of the stairs and told the family below that he was dying. 
When they got to him he was almost gone. Without a word he "fell on 
sleep," and the dawn of the Sabbath found him in Heaven. 

Of the seven sons and daughters, four are still living, and were at the 
funeral in Morristown: Dr. Charles T. Carroll, Jr., Mr. Shields Car- 
roll, Mrs. Frank Alexander — all of Morristown — and Mrs. L. W. Holmes, 
of Knoxville. A large congregation filled our church. Brothers Hunter 
and Orr sang some old hymns with tender pathos. Participating in the 
service were Revs. R. N. Price, G. D. French, T. J. Eskridge, J. W. Perry, 
T. C. Schuler, and the writer. With some of his Confederate comrades 
standing around the grave, we buried him at Liberty Hill, near Morris- 
town, by the side of the wife whom he had gone to meet. — James A. Bur- 
row. 



JOHN MILTON MAIDEN. 

John Milton Maiden was born in Washington County, Va., on De- 
cember 4, 1854, and passed from earthly life to heavenly bliss on April 17, 
1918. His life was only just above three score and three years. He was 
the son of William L. and Rebecca Maiden, who were devout Methodists 



68 HOLSTON ANNUAL 

and who created an atmosphere of home life congenial to the development 
of Christian faith and character in their children. 

At 16 years of age our brother professed faith in Christ and took the 
vows of the Methodist Church. Before he reached his majority he felt the 
call to preach, and just before reaching his twenty-second birthday he was 
licensed to preach (September 23, 1876) by the Quarterly Conference pre- 
sided over by the late Rev. B. W. S. Bishop, who signed the certificate 
of license. 

Brother Maiden spent his youth on his father's farm, seven miles north- 
east of Abingdon. Here among the hills he learned the lessons of industry 
and frugality which enabled him to accomplish the realization of worthy 
ambitions both for himself and his family. He profited by such oppor- 
tunities as were offered by country schools of his neighborhood and pre- 
pared himself to enter Emory and Henry, where he completed the junior 
year, working the while or teaching school to earn the means with which 
to continue his college work. For some years Brother Maiden taught 
in the public schools of Washington county. As a teacher he was highly 
respected for his ability to impart knowledge and to inspire his pupils to 
diligent work, as well as for his high integrity as a citizen and the gentle- 
ness and steadfastness of his Christian character. While teaching in the 
public schools he was active as a local preacher, but he was never satis- 
fied until he gave his whole time to the work of preaching. 

In 1891 he was admitted on trial into the traveling ministry in the 
Holston Conference, which met that year in Chattanooga, Tenn. At this 
time he was also ordained deacon by the late Bishop Charles B. Galloway. 
Two years later he was admitted into full connection at Knoxville, Tenn. ; 
and in 1896, at Cleveland, Tenn., he was ordained elder by Bishop Gallo- 
way, who again presided over the Conference. 

He was an effective itinerant preacher for eighteen years and served 
the following charges : Bristol Circuit, two years ; Madisonville, three 
years ; Clinchport, four years ; Clearfork, one year ; Spring Valley, four 
years; Independence, one year; New River, two years; West Tazewell, one 
year. 

While living at Madisonville, Tenn., Brother Maiden suffered a very 
severe attack of typhoid fever. This was in the fall of 1894, while Confer- 
ence was in session. If I mistake not, the rumor of his death reached 
us at that time. From this illness there was never complete recovery. The 
naturally strong constitution was greatly impaired ; but he continued in the 
effective ranks until the fall of 1908, when he superannuated. 

Brother Maiden was a faithful and useful itinerant preacher. He 
served large charges and received small salaries ; but he went uncomplain- 
ingly wherever he was sent, and he did his work faithfully and well. 
As a preacher he was clear and logical. His sermons were enriched by 
frequent quotations from the Bible. He was fond of the old themes, and 
his style was usually expository. His prayers in the congregation were 
marked by clearness and fervor. He used the old songs from the Hymnal 
and often led the congregation in singing them. 

Brother Maiden's social life illustrated the grace of our Lord Jesus 
Christ. He always prefixed "Brother" or "Sister" to the names of those 
whom he addressed. He made friends among all classes, and the people 
whom he served grew fonder of him as they were under his care from 
year to year. 

He was neat in his personal habits. He had a place for things and 
kept them in place. He used his time with the same care also. He was 
fond of reading; and while he did not have a large library, what he had 
was standard. 

Perhaps it was in the circle of the home that Brother Maiden was 
at his best. On March 23, 1883, he was married to Miss Sarah J. Grubb. 
For thirty-five years they lived and labored together. Eight children were 
born into their home, two of whom died in infancy. With skill and wisdom 



HOLSTON ANNUAL 69 

this Methodist preacher and his devoted wife reared their sons and daugh- 
ters to be strong, useful citizens and devout and active members of the 
Church. To each one of them they gave the advantages of education in 
our own colleges. 

One of the sons, Marvin, who is a local preacher and college professor, 
writes me : "One of my first recollections of my father is of seeing him 
leave home to fill a Sunday morning appointment. . . . He never missed 
an appointment when it was possible for him to meet it. . . . He was 
indeed a model in his conversation. He delighted in talking about prin- 
ciples. . . . He was always cheerful and optimistic. . . . He never had a 
doubt of his salvation. Ae he became more mellow in age he became 
dearer and sweeter to those intimately associated with him. From the little 
cottage nestling among these hills during recent years I am sure he has 
had many faint glimpses of the dawn of a brighter, larger day." 

The funeral service was held in the home on Sunday morning, April 
21, and the body was laid to rest in the afternoon at Emory. Funeral 
services were conducted by I. P. Martin, presiding elder, and Rev. George 
A. Maiden. — /. P. Martin. 



JOHN LINDSEY PRATER. 

John Lindsey Prater was born in Tazewell County, Va., on the 24th 
of August, 1853. He was the son of John Lindsey and Malissa Prater. 
At a very early age Brother Prater was converted and immediately united 
with the Methodist Church. While still in his boyhood he heard the call 
to preach, but it is safe to assume that he was licensed by the Quarterly 
thus early in life he determined to devote his patrimony to the pursuit of an 
education. From childhood he had that fondness for learning which so 
strongly marked his manhood and persisted to the last hours of his life. 

After the preparatory course had been completed in the schools of 
Tazewell, young Prater went to Emory and Henry College, from which 
he graduated in 1878. I am unable to give the record of his being licensed 
to preach, but it is safe to assume that he was licensed by the Quarterly 
Conference of his home circuit. 

He was admitted on trial into the traveling ministry of the Methodist 
Episcopal Church, South, at Abingdon, Va., in October, 1879. At this 
time he was twenty-six years old. He was admitted into full connection 
and ordained deacon at Wytheville, Va., in 1881, and was ordained elder 
at Chattanooga, Tenn., in 1883. Bishop McTyeire presided at both of 
these Conferences. 

Brother Prater was an effective preacher for thirty-eight years, during 
which he served nineteen charges, as follows : Hamilton Circuit, one 
year; Cleveland Circuit, one year; Athens Circuit, one year; Chattanooga 
City Mission, one year; Athens Station, one year; Maryville Circuit, one 
year ; Trenton Circuit, three years ; Spring City Circuit, one year ; Poca- 
hontas Station, three years ; Princeton Station, three years ; Max Meadows 
Circuit, four years ; Marion Circuit, two years ; Radford Station, three 
years ; Cleveland Station, two years ; Sweetwater Circuit, three years ; 
Pearisburg Circuit, two years ; Mary Street Station, two years ; Blount- 
ville Circuit, one year; Glade Spring Circuit, three years. 

On October 13, 1884, Brother Prater was married to Miss Ava Rucker, 
of Cleveland, Tenn., who lived only a few years. To them were born 
two children, Alma Ava and Lindsey Rucker. The daughter died in in- 
fancy. 

On the 30th day of September, 1890, Brother Prater was again married 
to Mrs. Mary Browning Snodgrass, who shared with him the sunshine and 
shadows of twenty-eight years of itinerant life and who abides in strength 
and devotion to the work to which with her husband she consecrated her- 



70 HOLSTON ANNUAL 

self at the marriage altar of the Church. Five children were born to 
them: Ollie Browning, Stella May (Mrs. C. V. Dickenson), Price 
Eugene, Clara Hope and Frank Harold, all of whom are living. 

The home life of this Methodist preacher was peculiarly devoted and 
happy. Except Lindsey, who lives in the far West, and Ollie, who has 
had severe affliction for several years, all of the family were present dur- 
ing the days of suffering which came at the end. 

A glance at the list of charges which Brother Prater served dis- 
closes the fact that he was a well-known figure in every part of the 
Holston Conference. His work covered nearly every part of the Con- 
ference. His first charge was Hamilton Circuit. From there to Prince- 
ton, W. Va., we follow the shuttle back and forth ; and although it moves 
so often and so far, there is never a break, but a new seamless gar- 
ment is woven from year to year. 

Almost everywhere Brother Prater went, his ministry was blessed with 
gracious revivals. His preaching was full of fervor. He preached directly 
to his hearers and expected results, and he was not disappointed. 

The Holston Conference long ago recognized Brother Prater as a 
strong, clear, forceful preacher of the Gospel. He was well grounded in 
Methodist theology and preached with power the doctrines of our faith. 
Those who heard him at camp grounds, in revival meetings! and at Dis- 
trict and Annual Conferences were moved by the messages which he de- 
livered, while both his heart and theirs grew warm with the consciousness 
of the presence of Christ. 

While he was well versed and grounded in the established teachings 
of Arminian theology, he perhaps read more widely in the field of cur- 
rent literature of religion and philosophy than any man among us. He 
does not seem to have cared much for history nor for the lighter forms 
of literature, but he was never satisfied for any length of time, whatever 
social inducements might be offered, without a book. He was peculiarly 
fond of books on devotional subjects. 

Brother Prater was very devoted and faithful as a pastor. He visited 
all of his people, high or low, far or near, in winter's cold or summer's 
heat. And he did not stop with the members of his own flock; he visited 
from house to house until he saw all of the people in their homes. Nor 
were his visits mere social calls. He talked about religion and read the 
Bible and prayed with those whom he visited. Much of his traveling 
he did afoot ; for, although he was a very stout figure, he was an unusually 
good walker. Sometimes he would walk for a few miles and then sit 
down by the roadside to read his ever present book, after which he would 
go on his way. 

Brother Prater enjoyed robust health from early life. He will be re- 
membered as a man of sturdy physique and ruddy countenance. He was 
fond of wholesome fun. He told many jokes at his own expense and 
always enjoyed them. 

In the early part of May, 1917, he had spent the night in one of the 
homes of his charge just north of Meadow View, expecting to preach in 
the village on Sunday morning ; but at breakfast time he was found uncon- 
scious in his room. The paralysis was so severe that little hope of recov- 
ery was entertained. But after a few days he rallied so that he was able 
to be taken to his home at Glade Spring. After a few weeks he was able 
to be out on his work. He even tried to preach a few times. So ardently 
did he hope for strength to go on with his work that it was difficult to 
keep him from overdoing his strength. But when the Annual Conference 
met in Pulaski he saw that he was unable to take work for another year 
and with a submission beautiful to see asked that he be superannuated. 

Soon after Conference he moved with his family to Bristol, where he 
secured the house on Goodson street which had been his parsonage home 
while pastor of Mary street. Here he spent the time with his family and 
his books until the summons came. A year after the first stroke came a 



HOLSTON ANNUAL 71 

second, which was followed by two weeks of suffering, during which he 
was tenderly nursed while largely unconscious. The end came in the early 
morning of May 28, 1918, and the earnest laborer was at rest, the faithful 
disciple was with his Lord. 

The funeral services were held in Mary Street Church, led by I. P. 
Martin, presiding elder, while present and participating in the services 
were Revs. G. A. Maiden, J. A. H. Shuler, R. T. McDowell, L. M. Burris 
and J. W. Repass. We laid the body to rest at Bristol. — /. P. Martin. 



JOHN MELVILLE WOLFE. 

John M. Wolfe was born near Gate City, Scott County, Va., July 17, 
1844. He was one of four sons. His parents were Emanuel and Sallie 
Wolfe. They were substantial people and instilled in the minds of their 
children by precept and example a love for God and the Church. Two of 
their sons became useful and honored itinerant Methodist ministers. They 
were Rev. J. K. Wolfe, who died a few years ago, and the subject of this 
sketch. 

The father died when John M. was a small boy about four years of 
age, and he bore through a long and checkered career the impress of his 
sainted mother, to whom he owed more for his religious training than 
to all other agencies combined. He was converted and joined the M. E. 
Church, South, when he was only ten years old — an ideal time to take 
this all important step. When a young man he enlisted at the call of his 
country as a Confederate soldier and served as such during the entire 
war. He was in some of the most memorable battles of those eventful 
years, prominent among them the historic battle of Chickamauga. No 
more brave or heroic soldier was found among his comrades, but he es- 
caped without a scar on his large and stalwart frame. God had placed 
his hand upon the young man as a chosen vessel to proclaim his truth as 
a herald of the cross. Soon after the days of civil strife were ended he 
was licensed to preach, and after serving for a time as a local preacher, 
in which position he made his gifts and acquirements prophetic of larger 
usefulness. 

In 1872 he was admitted on trial into the Holston Annual Conference. 
He was married to Miss Rebecca McMullen May 14, 1867. No other 
couple was ever more congenially united in the bonds of matrimony than 
were they. Into this home eleven children came, eight of whom lived 
to be grown; and with one exception (Mrs. Saffee, who did in Kansas) 
they are still alive. The sons are: J. E., J. B. and Eugene, all honored 
and useful citizens. One daughter married Rev. Ira Hicks, and another 
married his brother, R. V. Hicks. They live in New Jersey. Miss Mollie 
married Charles Orr, a brother of Rev. J. C. Orr: He was killed by a 
train near Morristown a few years ago. One other daughter lives with 
her mother at Dryden, Va. 

Brother Wolfe was effective for thirty years. He was ordained deacon 
by Bishop D. S. Doggett in 1874 and elder by Bishop William M. Wight- 
man in 1876. His charges were the following : Fall Branch, two years ; 
Hillsville, two years ; Hawkins, two terms, six years in all ; Powell's Val- 
ley, twice appointed, four years in all ; Jonesboro, three years ; Decatur, 
three years ; Sevierville, three years ; Madisonville, two years ; Louisville, 
four years. His last charge was Jasper, one year. He moved twelve 
times, some of them long and expensive ones and sometimes off the rail- 
road. How he managed to do these things and care for and educate 
his children on the salaries of those years, no one except his widow can 
tell. The average salary allowed him for those long years of arduous 
toil did not exceed $450 per year, and the average amount received will 
not exceed $350 annually. 



72 HOLSTON ANNUAL 

In 1902, from Jasper, Term., his last charge, he took a superannuate 
relation and was kept on the honor roll to the end of his life. His chil- 
dren having reached maturity and become self-sustaining, the last five 
years of his life he declined to receive help from the Conference funds, so 
modest and unselfish was he, lest he might receive money when some other 
brother or widow might need it worse than himself. His years as a super- 
annuate were for the most part spent at Dryden, Va., where he exerted a 
fine influence for good, and no other man ever lived in that community 
whose departure caused more regrets. 

J. M. Wolfe lived a clean life — was loved by all his people whom he 
served. He was a strong preacher and prepared his sermons with much 
care. He was a close, hard student. While he had not been favored with 
the best educational advantages, by perseverance he was able to read and 
translate Greek and Latin, in which he found pleasure and profit. 

About six or eight months before he died he was stricken with paralysis, 
which rendered him helpless. In this state he remained until November 
13, 1917, when life's weary wheels stood still, and the immortal part, the 
real self, was safely housed in the home of his hopes. 

The last time he was away from his home was to attend Sunday 
school in the church near by. His last request to his neighbors and 
friends was to keep the Sunday school and the prayer meetings going. 

His funeral was conducted by the pastor of his family and Dr. M. P. 
Carico, his presiding elder. Roy Early and C. W. Dean also took some 
part. The interment was in charge of the Masons. 

The charges that he served which were evergreen in his memory were 
Hillsville, Jonesboro and Decatur. In each of these he buried a child ; 
but he took consolation in the thought that while members of his family 
were buried in different cemeteries, there will be a resurrection in each 
place and a family reunion in heaven. 

"Servant of God, well done ! 

Rest from thy loved employ. 
The battle fought, the victory won, 

Enter thy Master's joy." 

— R. A. Owen. 



JOSEPH ASBURY BILDERBACK. 

After forty-five years of service in the itinerant ranks the name of 
Joseph Asbury Bilderback goes from the list of the clerical living to the 
roll of our sainted dead. Thus another star of gold adorns the ecclesias- 
tical service flag of Holston's militant hosts. 

He was born at Sweetwater, Tenn., Jan. 21, 1846. At the age of 20 
his conversion occurred, which was followed immediately by his union 
with the Methodist Episcopal Church, South. Five years later, Aug. 5, 
1871, he was granted license to peach ; and the year following was ad- 
mitted on trial in the Holston Conference at Chattanooga, Tenn. His 
license bears the familiar names of Carroll Long, presiding elder, and 
H. P. Waugh, secretary. The honored names of D. S. Doggett and W. M. 
Wightman appear on his ordination papers, and their dates show that he 
met the examination requirements without break or delay. 

His ministerial career included many appointments. Beginning with 
the Jamestown Circuit, he held successively the following charges : Tren- 
ton, Hamilton Circuit, Ooltewah, Jasper, Lookout Mission, Crossville, 
Riceville, Tracy City, Methodist Hill (Knoxville), East Park, Anderson- 
ville, Cedar Bluff, Virginia Avenue (Bristol), Limestone, Tate Springs, 
Rockwood, Jacksboro, Mosheim, Petros and Rising Fawn. In 1914 his 
name went to the superannuate roll. Later he supplied the Etna Circuit. 

Brother Bilderback was twice married ; first, to Miss Marv L. Bovce, 
Dec. 14, 1876, who departed this life in 1879. On June 16, 1881, he was 



HOLSTON ANNUAL 73 

married to Miss Julia E. Lowry, of Riceville, Term., who loyally shared 
the vicissitudes of his apostleship and now in silence mourns his loss. 
The sons who survive him are Boyce and Robert L., both of Chattanooga, 
and Lieut. Joseph M., who serves in the army of his country. 

It was my recent privilege to read the diary which Brother Bilderback 
left among his papers. In this he set down the simple record of his min- 
istry without amplification or comment. Despite the absence of descrip- 
tive phrases, there was an eloquence in it as truly real as it was unintended. 
He noted the number of his preaching appointments, the sermons delivered, 
persons baptized and received into the church, professions, infants dedi- 
cated to God and salary received. He spoke especially of the Annual Con- 
ferences and indicated the joy with which he received his appointments. 

This diary was equally significant and interesting for what it did not 
record. Sacrifices, disappointments and hardships which thrust themselves 
into the experience of every servant of Jesus Christ, he did not set down. 
The note of complaint was missing. The minor chord, except when he 
alludes to the death of his companion, was absent. If there were chasms 
thrown across the path of his life, he did not cross them on a bridge of 
sighs. Indeed, a beautiful spirit of Christian optimism was the predomi- 
nant characteristic of his nature, and lingers as a benediction in the mem- 
ory of his brethren and his loved ones. 

In assessing the value of a life like this the spiritual elements can- 
not be overlooked. We must regard the things which are not seen quite 
as much as those which are visible. True biographies are thus written. 
Divine records are composed in terms of the spiritual — in terms of the 
heart. Deeds, and even thoughts, are but the expression of the spiritual 
entities within. There was an evenness, a calm, a stadfastness, in this man 
of God that gave continuing evidence of his trust in Christ. In his walk 
through life there was no unobstrusiveness, no restless -ambition, no wish 
to be ministered unto ; on the contrary, he desired only to be useful, and 
accepted his lot and fortune as the decrees of a kindly providence. 

There was something infinitely beautiful about the closing of Brother 
Bilderback's life. In our thought we associate with death the idea of 
tragedy. Suffering and anxiety have become a part of its definition. But 
how different in this instance ! His was something more than a tran- 
sition, scarcely less than a translation. He had gone to visit his son, who 
then resided in Birmingham, Ala. The November days had come. The 
autumn glow was visible everywhere. A golden sunset had marked the 
ending of a day, and the ushering in of the twilight and the shadows. In 
the home circle he read from the Word of God, bowed with the loved 
ones in prayer, retired to his room and quietly fell asleep. It proved to 
be the sleep of eternal rest. 

"Asleep in Jesus, blessed sleep, 

From which none ever wakes to weep." 

Such a life-close is not death. It is "stepping on shore and finding it 
heaven ; it is taking hold of a hand and finding it God's hand ; it is breath- 
ing a new air and finding it celestial air; it is feeling invigorated and 
finding it immortality; it is waking up and finding it home." 

At Sweetwater, Tennessee, amid the scenes of his childhood, he rests 
in peace until the resurrection. — E. B. Wiley. 



DAVID SULLINS. 

He was born two miles west of Athens, McMinn County, Tenn., in July, 
1827. The home in which he first saw the light was a Christian home. 
His paternal ancestors were of that blood which more than any other has 
made Christian America what she is — Scotch Irish. Of his mother it was 
said that her father, four brothers, two sons and eleven nephews were 



74 HOLSTON ANNUAL 

Methodist preachers. She herself was noted for her piety and power in 
prayer. 

Dr. Sullins was converted when 12 years of age, and seems to have 
felt the call to preach from childhood. His father in building his home 
made the lower story a place to preach in. As Madame Russell in Vir- 
ginia had a pulpit in her home, so the doctor's father had a chapel in his 
home. He was educated in this home (never remembering when he 
learned his A, B, C's) in the neighborhood schools around home, and at 
Emory and Henry. At the latter place he was under the teaching of 
Collins, Wiley, Longley and Davis, and was associated in the student 
circles with such characters as J. E. B. Stuart, William E. Peters, Judge 
Preston White, J. H. Kennedy, F. Richardson and R. N. Price. 

He was licensed to preach in Abingdon in June, 1850, and joined the 
Conference there in the fall of the same year. His appointments were 
Burnsville Circuit, 1850-51; Asheville Station, 1851-52; Jonesboro, where 
he was joint principal of school, as well as pastor, 1852-5-7; Chattanooga, 
where in a great revival the father of our Dr. Stewart French was con- 
verted, 1857-58, and Knoxville, 1858-59 ; Blountville Circuit and service in 
war and educational work, 1859-65 ; Wytheville as pastor and principal of 
school, 1865-68 ; Bristol, as pastor and president Sullins College, 1868-80 ; 
Emory and Henry, as president, 1880-1885 ; Centenary, where was his 
closing work. 

On May 3, 1855, David Sullins was married to Ann Rebecca Blair, 
daughter of Hon. John Blair, of Jonesboro, Tenn. To them were born 
two sons, Charles and William, both of Knoxville, and two daughters, 
Mrs. George R. Stuart, of Birmingham, Ala., and Mrs. Frank F. Dosser, 
of Knoxville. There was never a happier home than theirs. 

Among the herpes and heroines of Holston Methodism — and none in 
American history are greater — the figure of our Dr. Sullins stands clearly 
outlined. His physical appearance was handsome. Intellectually he seemed 
to have had all the gifts, and also the gift of using his gifts. A poet, a 
humorist, a musician, an orator, a writer, but withal he was the embodi- 
ment of all the practical wisdoms of life. 

Sunny spirited, genial, "a clubable man," a fine mixer, the perfec- 
tion of tactfulness and discretion, always doing and saying the right thing 
at the right time. 

Above all these natural gifts were the endowments and guidance of 
the Holy Spirit. 

Why should we wonder at what God wrought through him — as pastor, 
as revivalist, as one who dedicated so many churches, as being so much 
in demand at the camp meetings, where saints were uplifted and sinners 
convicted and converted under his spirit-endowed oratory? Why should 
we wonder at revivals in schools? At his helping the Emory boys to lead 
Dr. Collins into a great revival, at large numbers of young women con- 
verted in Jonesboro schools who were destined to be the wives and help- 
meets of men who were to lead in church and state for the next fifty 
years? Why wonder at his work in the foundation of Sullins and Centen- 
ary Colleges, and his work at Emory, inspiring the new endowment era, 
and raising a $50,000 fund, and conducting an administration out from 
under which filed into service Waterhouse, Neighbors, Blake, C. M. Bishop, 
G. R. Stuart, J. O. Straley and others. 

But, I fear me, the doctor would object to this. The greatest achieve- 
ment of his life was his letting Christ unself him. 

Nor, brethren, are we here to mourn. The doctor used to tell us to 
stand over his grave when we came to Cleveland to Conference and sing: 

"Praise God from whom all blessings flow." 

He would have us be at his memorial as he was at the funeral of Dr. 
Frank Richardson. In his talk there he seemed to feel that Richardson's 
spirit was there by him, or that he was up in heaven with him. 



HOLSTON ANNUAL 75 

His idea of approaching death, he used to illustrate by how he used to 
finish the last plow-row and ride to the mingling music of the trace chains 
and the wild birds' song, to meet mother coming out to the spring-house 
to get the milk and butter for supper, singing as she came : 

"O heaven, sweet heaven," etc. 

And when he came face to face with death he was almost semi- 
humorously happy. 

"George," said he, lying on his dying pillow; "I've just made a new 
sermon." 

"Well, what is it, father?" said George. 

"The text," said the doctor, is : 

" 'Precious in the sight of the Lord is the death of his saints' ; precious 
because all sorrows are ended ; precious because loved ones are waiting ; 
precious because the dying saint is ready and longing to go." — D. S. 
Hearon.
