EDITORIAL WORD 



The price of the Annual is 40 cents per copy. We have printed 4,000 
copies, the largest in our history. It behooves every preacher, therefore, 
to sell more copies than he has ever sold. Please remit promptly to the 
Chattanooga Savings Bank, our Conference Treasurer. We get interest 
on daily balance, when the money is in the bank. Be sure and remember 
this. Sell, and order more copies. In the statistical tables some preach- 
ers have included all benevolences under "Conference Work," some under 
"General Work," and some have divided the same.

Home Missions. — Dr. J. W. Perry, one of our General Home 
Mission Secretaries, addressed the Conference in the interest of 
an adequate education of the colored preachers and teachers of 
the South, through our Paine College. 

Lay Activities. — The Board of Lay Activities made report, 
which was adopted. (See supplement "F.") A mass meeting of 
laymen passed resolutions, which were read and received as 
follows : 

Resolved, That we, the Laymen of the Holston Conference, M. E. 
Church, South, in conference assembled, express our undeviating behef in 
the fundamental doctrines of our Church as contained in the Articles of 
Religion and Apostle's Creed; that we affirm our positive belief in the 
virgin birth, the bodily resurrection and Deity of our Lord Jesus Christ, 
and in the inspiration, integrity and full reliability of the Bible ; and pledge 
our loyalty to the Church for the support of these doctrines and the de- 
fense of all matters of concern to the Church. 

We deplore a tendency among some of the members of our Church to 
modernistic views and rationalistic instructions among our people, and be- 
cause of our loyalty to the Church and our sincere interest for its greatest 
success in the salvation of souls, we take our stand against so-called mod- 
ernism wherever and whenever found in our Church and strongly urge that 
all the ministers, officials and members of all Boards and institutions, and 
each and every member of the Church, use their influence to preserve the 
"faith of our fathers" and our unqualified belief in the inerrancy of the 
Holy Scriptures. 

We especially recommend that all the institutions of learning of the 
Church see that nothing is taught in any department of these institutions 
that is in conflict with the credibility of the Bible, as we are deeply con- 
cerned that the high standard heretofore taken by our splendid institutions 
for the faith and Christian development of our young people be main- 
tained. 

We deeply regret such occurrences as the Dr. Bland incident at Lake 
Junaluska and endorse the attitude of Bishop Cannon in connection there- 
with. May we not here express the hope that such unfortunate incidents 
may not be permitted to again occur. 

We pay tribute to the almost unanimous number of ministers and a 
large number of officials and laymen who have given and are giving their 
very life for these great causes and tender them our gratitude, appreciation 
and affection. 

Reports. — The Hospital Board made report, which was 
adopted. See supplement ''G." 

Report of our Orphanage at Greeneville was read and adopted.

CONFERENCE REPORTS 



BOARD OF CHRISTIAN LITERATURE. 
Report No. 1. 

Your Board of Christian Literature desires to make Report No. 1 con- 
cerning the Methodist Advocate. 

We are pleased to note the improved appearance and superior quahty 
of the paper under the new management. We regret, however, that the 
subscription list during the last year, instead of increasing to the point of 
self-support, has suffered a loss of 1,070, making the present subscrip- 
tion list 8,527. When the three Conferences entered into an agreement 
with Lamar & Barton the contract was accepted. The second and third 
clauses read as follows : 

Second : "We will publish the organ of the three Conferences for them 
on a cash basis, profit, if any, to be prorated on a plan adopted by the Con- 
ferences. Third : Loss, if there be any, to be provided for by an assess- 
ment on the Conferences to indemnify us against such loss. It is under- 
stood that all advances necessary will be made by us and then be paid back 
when Conference assessments are collected." In view of the deficit last 
year, your Board feels that Holston Conference is under a contract and 
moral obligation to lay an assessment on the Conference to pay one-third 
of the loss. The joint commission of the three Conferences asks that the 
assessment be $2,000.00 for each Conference. We recommend that their 
request be granted. 

We are informed by Mr. Barton that a subscription list of 14,000 will 
easily cover the entire cost of publication. In order that we may avoid 
the necessity of laying an assessment on the Conference in the following 
years, we request: First, that the other two Conferences join us in a cam- 
paign for 14,000 subscriptions, which will be necessary to support the paper. 
Second, w^e respectfully request Bishop Mouzon, as early as possible after 
the session of the Memphis Conference, to call a meeting of the Joint 
Commission, the presidents of the three boards of Christian Literature, 
the Publishing Agents, the Circulation Manager, and the Editor, to devise 
and put into operation a plan by which the subscriptions can be secured. 

P. L. Cobb, Chairman. 

R. G. Reynoi^ds, Secretary. 



Report No. 2. 

We heartily endorse the Christian Advocate, the Methodist Advocate, 
the Methodist Quarterly Review, Missionary Voice, Bpvuorth Era, and the 
various publications of our Sunday School Board which so splendidly 
meet the needs of our well organized schools. We urge that our people 
read the publications of our own Church rather than independent publica- 
tions, which criticize our Church and its leaders and present no construc- 
tive program. 

1. We recommend that our preachers and laymen secure and read the 
following books mentioned by Bishop Mouzon : 

"The Founders" (series of 5 volumes) ; "Life of Thomas Coke" (by 
Bishop Warren A. Candler) ; "What We Believe" (by F. N. Parker) ; 
"What Every Methodist Should Know" (by Geo. R. Stuart) ; "Standard 



HOLSTON ANNUAL 45 



Catechism"; "Aftermath Series" (by Bishop H. M, DuBose) ; "Return of 
the Redeemer" (by Geo. P. Eckman). 

2. We recommend that our Simdaj' Schools and Epworth Leagues use 
the Cokesbury Hymnal. 

3. We recommend that our people patronize our own Methodist Pub- 
lishing House in preference to other publishing concerns. 

4. We call attention to the tracts, prepared by our Board of Tracts and 
Evangelistic Literature, which are for free distribution on mission charges 
and sold at cost to others.

JOINT COMMISSION ON "METHODIST ADVOCATE." 
To the Holston, Tennessee and Memphis Conferences : 

Dear Brethren — Your Commission on publication of the Methodist 
Advocate met at the Publishing House in Nashville on September 25, 
1923. All the Commissioners from Holston and Tennessee Conferences 
w^ere present and one from the Memphis Conference, viz., Rev. R. H. 
Pigue. The report of the publishers on the financial status and the circu- 
lation of the paper was presented for our consideration. (A copy of this 
report is hereto attached.), It is evident from this report that the end of 
the first year of publication v^ill show a deficit of nearly $5,000.00. It is 
also evident that if full collections could be made of all delinquent sub- 
scriptions, the paper would show a profit instead of a loss. It is further 
evident that if the Conferences had used "their best efforts to increase the 
subscriptions to at least 15,000," as we promised to do, this deficit would 
not now confront us. Your Commission does not consider that our con- 
dition is one of hopelessness for our Conference organ ; on the other hand, 
we regard the situation as very hopeful, all things considered. The paper 
has steadily improved in value as a Conference newspaper and as a circu- 
lating medium for the affairs of our Church. The publishers have given us 
courteous and painstaking service at a minimum cost and will continue to 
do so. Our one and only need is the careful, personal and painstaking at- 
tention of the members of the Conferences to the circulation of the paper. 
The paper exists for the purpose of getting the activities of our Church 
before our people and can only do so by an enlarged circulation. We are of 
the steadfast opinion that a concerted effort, systematically planned and 
conscientiously carried out, will so enlarge the circulation that the sub- 
scription list will care for all the financial obligations of the paper. The 
total number of subscribers is only 8,527. If the official members alone 
(making up the quarterh- conferences in our territory) should all take the 
paper, it would give us 6,000, or more, in each Conference. Surely it 
should be possible to reach such a goal or its equivalent. We therefore 
recommend : 

1. That each Conference shall adopt such a slogan for the coming 
year looking to a subscription list of 6,000 in each. 

2. That a specific number be apportioned to each of the districts (as a 
minimum) and reapportioned by the districts to the several pastoral 
charges. 

3. That a certain date be set, to be known as "Conference Paper- 
Week" (or month on circuits), and that careful plans be made by presid- 
ing elders and pastors for a personal canvass of all our churches. 



46 HOLSTON ANNUAL 

4. That all our Churches in towns and cities be urged to put the' paper 
in the annual budget and send it to all their members. 

5. That the pastors are called upon to act as agents for the publishers 
both in circulating the paper and collecting subscriptions therefor. A lib- 
eral commission is offered for this service by the publishers. 

Carrying out our original agreement with Lamar & Barton to "provide 
for any loss by an assessment on the Conferences," your Commission, after 
full discussion, in the light of what other Conferences are doing, imani- 
mously agreed to recommend : 

(6) That an assessment of $2,000.00 be levied against each Conference 
for the support and the enlargement of the sphere of usefulness of the 
paper. In connection with this recommendation, we call your attention to 
an exhibit, furnished us by Mr. John W. Barton (hereto attached) of the 
financial status and management of all the other Conference organs in our 
connection. Should an active campaign for subscribers be put on, as out- 
lined above, it is probable, and more than possible, to make the subscrip- 
tion list carry the full expense of publication without this assessment. 
Fourteen tJioiisand paid subscriptions will cover the zvhole cost of publica- 
tion and leave a balance in the treasury for enlargement of the paper. 

Dr. James A. Burrow was unanimously re-elected as editor for the en- 
suing year and his salary fixed at $3,600.00. i 

Respectfully submitted, 

T. C. Ragsdale, Chairman. 
J. Taylor Strattox, Secretary pro tern. , ' 



HOLSTON'S CENTENNIAL. 

On Saturday, September 30, 1922, the Holston Conference of the 
Methodist Episcopal Church, South, in session at Mary Street Church, 
Bristol, Va., passed the following resolution, signed bv W. S. Hendricks, 
C. W. Kelley and D. F. Wyrick: 

''Resolved, That we, the pastors of the city of Knoxville, in Confer- 
ence assembled, September \\, memorialize the Annual Conference, when 
it shall assemble in Mary Street Church, Bristol, Va., to appoint a com- 
mission for the purpose of arranging a program and to make all necessary 
arrangements for a suitable celebration of the Centenary Anniversary of 
Holston Conference in Magnolia Avenue Church, Knoxville', Tenn., Octo- 
ber, 1924," and the minutes show that on Monday, October 2, "the Bishop 
and presiding elders nominated as the special Commission on a celebration 
of one hundred years of Holston history the following: The presiding 
elder of the Knoxville District; preacher in charge of Magnolia Avenue 
Church, Knoxville; J. A. Burrow, I. P. Martin, G. F. Mellen ; five others 
to be appointed by this Commission." 

Through correspondence and personal interviews between members of 
the above named Commission, the following were appointed as per the 
above directions: W. S. Neighbors, H. C^ Stuart, J. L. Foust, T. R. 
Wolfe and J. A. Bays. 

The Commission was called to meet in the Church Street Church 
offices, Knoxville, Tenn., on Tuesdav, April 10, 1923, at which time J. A. 
Burrow, J. S. French, C. K. Wingo, 'l. P. Martin, J. L. Foust, T. R. Wolfe 
and J. A. Ba^^s were present. Dr. J. A. Burrow led in prayer, after which 
a permanent organization was effected by the election of J. S. French as 



HOLSTON ANNUAL 



chairman and J. A. Bays as secretary. Hon. H. C. Stuart and Dr. W. S. 
Neighbors were unavoidably detained, the former by business engagements, 
the latter by a series of meetings in progress in his church at Chattanooga. 
A letter was received from Dr. Geo. F. Mellen, tendering his resignation, 
since his time is nov^- being spent outside the territory of the Conference 
and he was thus unable to be of service. The resignation was accepted, and 
Mr. A. T. Dosser, of Knoxville, Tenn., was elected in his place and took 
his seat, an election we ask you to confirm along with the adoption of this 
paper. 

Tt became almost at once evident that the Commissioners were a unit 
in their thought of what ought to be made the leading idea of the program, 
and after an entire morning spent in talking over various phases of the 
matter a committee was appointed, consisting of J. S. French, I. P. Martin 
and T. R. Wolfe, to draft a plan and submit it for approval to a meeting 
of the Commission to be called by the chairman at such time and place 
as seemed wise, at which time the finishing touches might be added. 

It seemed to the Commission that the time was at hand for a great 
program of Evangelism. When the world is weary and uncertain of itself, 
when men seem to have difficulty in thinking straight and consecutively, 
when there is restlessness in both Church and State, it seems well to issue 
a call to men to come back to that One who gives "rest" to the weary, 
who gives "wisdom liberally and upbraideth not," and who declared, long 
ago, through the prophet Isaiah to restless Israel, "In returning and rest 
shall ye be saved ; in quietness and in confidence shall be j'our strength." 
Moreover, as we thought of a hundred years of the history of Methodism 
in this hill country, we were convinced that, whatever else we may have 
done, our largest contribution to the onward march of progress has been 
through evangelistic efforts. Our fathers preached a great gospel, and be- 
cause they themselves had experienced it and believed it, they preached it 
"in demonstration of the Spirit and of power." It took hold upon men like 
the hands of giants laid upon them ; shook them, moved them, carried them 
to the gates of heaven and ,into conscious fellowship with God. In brush 
arbors built beneath the trees of the forest, at camp grounds here and 
there, in rude log churches in the mountain gorges and in more imposing 
structures in villages and towns, the call went constantly echoing, "Come 
now, and let us reason together, saith the Lord : though your sins be as 
scarlet, they shall be as white as snow ; though they be red like crimson, 
they shall be as wool," and to the music of "What wondrous love is this, 
oh, my soul," or "Amazing grace, how sweet the sound," men and women 
and little children surrendered joyfully to Jesus Christ and set their faces 
toward glory. 

We would not attempt to reproduce the methods of those days. Our 
environment is altogether different and calls for methods applicable to the 
present. But in humbleness of spirit and utter dependence upon God, we 
would try to reproduce the results of those days. We care little about 
methods ; the fewer, in the sense of manipulations, we may have, the better. 
But we would "tarry in upper chambers" until "power comes upon us," 
until a great dynamic seizes us, until there is a restoration of the "joy of 
His salvation ;" and then we would go forth to "teach transgressors His 
ways" and see "sinners converted unto Him." We are profoundly con- 
vinced that this is our chief need, and that no program to round out a 
hundred years of Holston history would be as appropriate as one which 
put evangelism in the forefront. 

Along with this, and as an integral part of it, the Commission felt 
that attention ought to be directed to our history. It is a far cry from 
1823-24 to 1923-24, farther measured by progress even than by years. A 
hundred years ago, including all territory then embraced within our boun- 
daries, we had 43 traveling preachers and 14.935 members, there having 
been an increase from 60 members in 1783, when organic Holston Meth- 
odism began in Holston Circuit of the Western Conference. Now we 



48 HOLSTON ANNUAL 

have 259 members of the Conference, to which must be added 34 preachers 
on trial and 53 supphes, making 346 in all, and a membership of 78,120; 
and this after losing that part of North Carolina which was included in 
our territory at the time of organization, and which is now a part of the 
Western North Carolina Conference. Then we had but few church build- 
ings, most of them of rude construction and worth not over twenty-five 
or thirty thousand dollars ; now we have 748 buildings, valued at $3,790,900. 
If there was a parsonage in the Conference we have no knowledge of it, 
though there may possibly have been two or three ; now there are 194, 
valued at $798,555. Then there were but few Sunday Schools, none at all 
as we know them today ; now we have 803, with 6,390 officers and teachers 
and 97,583 scholars. Then there was no such thing as an Epworth League ; 
now we have 249, with a membership of 8,581. Then we did not have an 
educational institution of any kind; now we have 4, with 53 teachers and 
661 students, the property being valued at $730,000. Still other statistics 
might be given, but the above are enough to show something of what God 
has wrought in Methodism during these 3^ears, and this knowledge ought 
to increase our love for our Church and deepen our loyalty to it. 

These two things, evangelism and histor}-, the committee was instructed 
to keep foremost in its plans, and with this in view it submitted the fol- 
lowing general outline with reference to the celebration of one hundred 
3'ears of Holston history*: 

I. 7'ime. — Beginning with the Conference session of 1923, running 
through the year and culminating with the session of 1924. 

II. Place.— (I) Every church within our borders. (2) Particularly 
points of special historic interest to Holston Methodism. 

III. Purpose. — (1) To call men to God. (2) To strengthen men in 
their faith. (3) To increase men's activities for rigtheousness. (4) To 
deepen our sense of loyalty to Methodism. (5) To fill the ranks of the 
ministry. 

IV. Means to Be Employed. — (1) Preaching the gospel. (2) Singing 
the great hymns. (3.) Prayer. (4) Literature. (5) Addresses at the ses- 
sion of 1924. (6) Parade and pageant at session of 1924. 

V. Contributors. — (1) Every preacher. It is the decided conviction of 
3-our Commission that while any brother who desires to secure the services 
of an evangelist for his own church meeting be entireh' free to do so, that 
the great bulk of this undertaking, and especially the meetings to be held 
in historic and other centers, ought to be done by ourselves. (2) Groups 
of laymen in each district, selected by and under the direction of the Pre- 
siding Elder and District Lay Leader. 

VI. Finances. — Such a program as this cannot be successfully carried 
forward without some considerable outlay of mone\', and we ask that an 
assessment of $5,000.00 be laid on the Conference for this one year. 

In working out this program we suggest that a presiding elder's district 
be regarded as the unit, though it may be possible that some meetings near 
the borders ought to take in parts of two districts, and we offer the follow- 
ing with reference to : 

1. District Organization. — That the presiding elder and ones selected 
by him be in charge, and suggest that Tuesday, October 23, be set aside as 
the day when each presiding elder shall call together the preachers of his 
district and work out with them a detailed plan for a meeting in each 
church and such an interchange of preachers as will insure whatever help 
may be needed. 

2. Meetings in Historic and other Central Points. — That the presid- 
ing elders be requested to meet immediately upon adjournment of this 
Conference session and make out and publish a list of the meetings to be 
held in such places, together with the dates, leaders, preachers and singers. 

From the membership of the Commission other committees have been 
appointed as follows: 



HOLSTON ANNUAL 49 



1. Literature. — J. A. Burrow, I. P. Martin, W. *S. Neighbors. 

2. Publicity.— C. K. Wingo, J. A. Bays, J. L. Foust. 

3. Parade and Pageant.— A. T. Dosser, T. R. Wolfe, C. K. Wingo. 

4. Speakers for Session of 1924. — H. C. Stuart, W. S. Neighbors, I. P.- 
Martin. 

5. Securing Singers. — J. A. Bays, T. R. Wolfe, J. L. Foust. 

6. Committee on Bvangclism Appointed bv Board of Missions. — French 
Wampler, J. R. Brown, H. C. Gilmer, C. K. Wingo, J. A. Bays, J. S. 
French. 

7. The Chairman of the Commission shall be, ex officio, a member of 
all committees. 

At a called meeting of the Commission on October 3, at Bluefield, the 
Committee submitted its report, and after full discussion, this paper was 
approved, and we now submit it to you for your adoption. 

We set no quotas, but if this plan can be carried out so that the revival 
fires shall burn brightly upon our altars, we see no reason why our 
Methodism should not number a hundred thousand members at the session 
of 1924 and the Kingdom of God be greatly strengthened throughout the 
hills and valleys of Holston.

TEMPERANCE AND SOCIAL SERVICE. 

Your Board of Temperance and Social Service beg leave to submit the 
following report : 

First, in matter of supreme importance, and as constituting what, in 
our judgment, is the paramount issue, both of the Church and State, at 
the present time, is the question of our relation, as a Nation, to the gen- 
eral question of the peace and order of the world. We believe that we 
cannot address ourselves to the pressing tasks presented to us by the social 
unrest of our own country, with any degree of assurance of success, until 
we have established ourselves in right relation to the other nations of the 
world. We cannot forget, that, as the result of our co-operation in the 
world war, there was thrust upon us in the order of divine providence the 
opportunity and the responsibility of taking the leadership in the moral re- 
construction of the whole world. By virtue of the relation that we sus- 
tained to the rest of the world, growing out of our vast resources, and the 
spiritual qualities of our civil institutions, we had the opportunity to es- 
tablish in the world order great new principles of government, founded 
upon the ethics of the gospel of Jesus Christ. 

As long as the issue of the world war was to be measured by the 
precious blood of our boys on the battlefields of France we did our part 
nobly and well, and every American is proud of the history which we made, 
but when the greater issues following our victory at arms presented them- 
selves to us, and were in a measure to be assessed by a sacrifice of some 
of our financial and business advantages, we ignobly failed in our task. 
Our physical resources were equal to the supreme needs of the world in 
its greatest crisis, our spiritual forces failed to dominate in the hour of 
victory. We refused to ratify a treaty born in the mind of the greatest 
American, Woodrow Wilson, that had in it the establishment of a new 
world order, that was to fulfill our pledge to other nations, and our promise 
to our own boys who made the supreme sacrifice, that war should cease on 
the earth forever. By the ratification of that treaty we could have estab- 
lished the principle of world prohibition in every nation, and have estab- 
lished actual prohibition over one-third of the earth's surface. We could 
have forever banished and put under the ban of universal law the traffic 
of women. We could have, under international agreement, prohibited in 
the whole world the private manufacture of arms and ammunition. We 
could have brought to a final end the un-Christian policy of national com- 
petition in the building of military and naval establishments and limited 
them to the needs of police protection. Greater than all, we had the op- 
portunity to fulfill the prayer and hope of the ages for the establishment 
of a real brotherhood of nations, based upon the teachings of Jesus in the 
Sermon on the Mount, and the Golden Rule. 

We cannot forget that for a passing political expedient we failed to 



52 HOLSTON ANNUAL 



furnish the spiritual authority to carry out this great world program; 
therefbre, we believe that before we can cope successfully with our press- 
ing national and local problems we must put ourselves right in the greater 
matter of our world relationship. We therefore affirm with our greatest 
possible emphasis, the recent deliverance of the Federal Council of 
Churches of Christ in America, that first "we believe that all nations 
should associate themselves permanently for world peace and good will," 
and second, "we believe in international law, and in the universal use of 
international courts of justice and boards of arbitration." 

Turning to the questions of importance in our own immediate territory, 
we call attention once more to the spirit of lawlessness which is prevailing 
the whole nation, and is manifesting itself in various ways in our own im- 
mediate territory. The most obvious expression of this is, perhaps, the 
apparent determination of a large class of the people to undermine the 
sanction and authority of the eighteenth amendment. The principle of the 
prohibition of the manufacture and sale of intoxicating liquors has been 
written into the constitution of this country. It is as fundamental and 
sacred as any other part of our national law. Any conspiracy to defeat 
the purpose of this law is as much the work of traitors as would be a 
conspiracy to undermine that section of the constitution which provides 
for the establishment of courts of justice. The sanctions of this article of 
our constitution must be enforced at the risk of our national existence, 
and it is high time that every Christian, every loyal citizen, every Ameri- 
can, should determine that this law shall be obeyed. It will be a sad day 
in the history of this country when the Church shall admit that it has not 
the force of spiritual authority to compel obedience to this law on the part 
of that most desperate and unpatriotic section of our people who have set 
out to defy its authority. 

We therefore call upon all our people, and all other people who love 
order and government, and decently organized society, to unite their forces 
in, first, selecting as their representatives in the government, those who are 
avowedly in sympathy with the eighteenth amendment ; and secondly, by 
standing with those officers of the law who are today, at the risk of their 
lives, splendidly fulfilling the function of their office. 

We recognize the important work yet to be done by the organized 
forces of the Church, as represented b}^ the Anti-Saloon League. With 
all its splendid work of the past^ it has never had a greater task to perform 
than at the present. We may safely work through this organization to 
meet our obligation in the field of temperance reform, and we call upon 
our people to support it with their interest, and their prayers, and their 
money. 

We would once more endorse the work of The Lord's Day Alliance, 
and in response to their request we recommend that Rev. E. E. Wiley and 
Mr. Creed F. Bates be appointed to represent the Holston Conference in 
the Lord's Day Alliance of the United States. 

Finally, we call attention of the Conference to the deliverance of the 
General Conference which adopted, as its official statement, the "Social 
Creed of the Churches of Christ of America." This paper sets forth the 
principles upon which the Church has pledged itself to proceed, as touch- 
ing the great problem of capital and labor. We believe that this creed of 
the Churches ought to be kept prominently before the mind of the Church, 
as a proper and just expression of our sense of equal rights of all the 
people. We stand for the highest levels of life, and rejoice in and main- 
tain, not only the sacred rights of life and liberty, and property, but in the 
equal opportunity of all to reach their highest standards of living.

HOLSTON ANNUAL 53 



BOARD OF LAY ACTIVITIES. 
We hereb}- report as follows : 

1. October 24-25, 1923, the Conference Lay Leader had the District 
Lay Leaders and Presiding Elders in conference at Abingdon, Virginia, for 
discussion and for crystallization of a year's program. The most valuable 
thing which came out of that meeting was an arrangement for a Laymen's 
meeting in connection with the District Missionary Institute in each Pre- 
siding Elder's district. 

2. He attended the District Missionary Institute in 9 of the 10 Pre- 
siding Elder's districts. The Presiding Elders very kindly and courteously 
permitted him to have opportunity to have presented the lay activities 
work. 

3. He was able in spring to attend only 3 of the 10 District Confer- 
ences. At those he had opportunities to present the Laj^men's work. 

4. He sent out last spring questionnaires calling for names and ad- 
dresses of charge lay leader, church lay leader, chairman of each lay com- 
mittee. 

He has thus secured the names and addresses of the local lay leaders 
in 157 churches. He has the names and addresses of church chairmen of 
committees in 138 churches. This would be sufficient for an efficient start 
in lay work, if it were possible to have a full time lay leader. We con- 
gratulate those churches upon the organization start which they have. 

5. We report the appointment of a committee consisting of B. T. 
Wilson, C. L. Carleton and C. L. Marshall to study thoroughly and report 
at Conference, 1924, the advisability and the practicability of an arrange- 
ment for a full time efficient lay leader for the Holston Conference. 

6. We hereby pledge the co-operation of all lay leaders and other 
officers of the laymen's organization to co-operate actively with other 
Boards of the Church, particularly with the Boards having in charge the 
the collections of Centenary, Christian Education and Orphanage sub- 
scriptions. 

7. We recommend that this year's effort shall be made to get a copy 
of the Lay Activities Manual into the hands of every lay leader and every 
chairman of a lay committee in every church. They cost $2.50 per dozen 
and may be had from the Publishing House, Methodist Episcopal Church, 
South, at Nashville. With this done, the work of our six committees can 
begin to function actively and efficiently. 

8. We recommend that the emphasis be placed upon the side of re- 
ligious education and religious development of laymen. The laymen must 
colleg; the finances of the Church, but the lay organization is not primarily 
a collection agency. It is an educational agency. It is an agency of ac- 
tivity and service along all lines calling for activity and service. The more 
the activity engaged in, the more the service rendered ; however much the 
value may be to others, a still greater value accrues to the actor and doer 
of the service. We grow in terms of exercise, of activity, of service. Let 
the emphasis be placed on activity to be done by every one in the Church, 
"every layman of both sexes at work for Jesus." 

9. We recommend that the Conference continue the assessment of 
$1,000.00 for the lay activities work for next year. 

10. We recommend that a request be made for a half-day laymen's 
program in connection with each District Conference unbroken by other 
business. The Church at large will never reap the value latent in the lay 
organization unless it gives the lay organization opportunity for presenta- 
tion in the Church conferences. 



54 HOLSTON ANNUAL 



11. We hereby pledge our support and loyalty to the matter of law 
enforcement. 

12. At the request of our field secretary for the Centenar}^, the dis- 
trict and associate lay leaders agree to visit all the churches in their re- 
spective districts to consider with the church Centenary treasurers con- 
cerning the status of the payments on the Centenary pledges. 

13. A committee has been appointed, consisting of F. A. Carter, Frank 
A. Weiss, C. L. Carleton, W. E. Brock and J. R. Laird, to study thor- 
oughly' all plans and methods of group insurance for our ministers and 
report at Conference, 1924, a definite plan for such insurance. 

14. We hereby pledge our active support to the Superannuate Endow- 
ment campaign. 

15. It is hereby reported as the sentiment of the laymen of the Hol- 
ston Conference that, as soon as present subscriptions shall have been paid 
and as soon as projected financial programs shall be out of the way, the 
fiscal authorities of our Church shall proceed to consider plans for budget- 
ing all future financial programs. 

In closing this report, the Conference Lay Leader hereby thanks the 
Holston Conference for the honor conferred upon him by the Conference 
lay leadership for the year 1922-23. He has not been able to accomplish 
one one-hundredth of the things needing to be done and which a full-time 
lay leader could do. When you shall make possible financially a full-time 
leader and shall have chosen the right man, old Holston will set the pace 
for the rest of Methodism. 

Joseph E. Avent, 
Lay Leader for the Board of Lay Activities. 



HOSPITAL BOARD. 

We have read with great satisfaction the report of Rev. Chas. C. 
Jarrell, General Secretary of the Hospital Board of our Church. It cannot 
fail to be a matter of general interest and approval of our whole mem- 
bership that our Church has at last addressed itself to the task of minis- 
tering to the physical needs of our people, and of the suffering public, in 
a way that is worthy of our divine commission in the world. Too long 
have we delayed this great task, but we can look with pride at the begin- 
ning of a great church-wide enterprise, looking to the establishment of 
hospitals under the care and direction of our Church. Among the hos- 
pitals which have already been founded, and may be named, the Barnes 
Hospital, of St. Louis, which is valued, including physical property, endow- 
ments and other assets, reaching the impressive total of $2,500,000.0(5, the 
Wesley Memorial Hospital, located on the campus of Emory University, 
Atlanta, Ga., which has cost in construction so far about $1,750,000.00 ; the 
Methodist Hospital at Memphis, which will cost, when completed, $500,- 
000.00, with a nurses' home to cost $75,000.00; the Methodist Hospital at 
Hattiesburg, Miss., in which the Methodist Church has an equity. Beside 
these, the following hospitals are in course of construction : Montgomery 
Memorial Hospital, Dallas Sanitarium, the hospital at Houston, Texas and 
one at Fort W^orth, Texas. The Church is also planning to establish a 
hospital for tubercular patients, somewhere in the Southwest. 

These great institutions show the beginning of an enterprise in this 
field of activities which is worthy of our great Church, and we may feel 
that the work in this department, under the table and aggressive manage- 
ment of our general hospital board, will develop rapidly in all sections of 
the Church, until we will be able to the fullest measure of our ability to 



HOLSTON ANNUAL 55 

fulfill our commission to go into the world, not only to preach the gospel, 
but to heal the sick; and to minister to the distressed. 

The Holston Conference Hospital Board has not found an opportunity 
to begin any work of this character within the bounds of the Holston Con- 
ference up to the present time. We point with great satisfaction, how- 
ever, to the Holston Conference Orphanage at Greeneville, Tenn., which is 
altogether a worthy expression of the liberality of our people in this field. 
Subscriptions have been made to cover the entire cost of a building in 
connection with this Orphanage, which has cost, with its equipment, about 
$125,000.00. It is to be hoped that all of these subscriptions will be paid in 
the near future. 

We call special attention to the Golden Cross Society, which is to be 
organized in all sections of our Church, and which will form the basis of 
instruction and inspiration in the general work of our Church in this field. 
We trust that the preachers at our Conference will see to it that the litera- 
ture furnished by the general board is distributed among our people, and 
wherever possible Golden Cross Societies will be organized, as auxiliaries 
to the General Hospital Board. 

E. F. Kahi,e, President. 

C. E. Steele, Secretary.

CHURCH EXTENSION. 

We are glad to report that the work of the Board of Church Extension 
continues with uninterrupted progress. This is an era of church building. 
Our people are erecting houses of worship all over the Conference. A 
warning, however, is needed against building so far beyond the present 
needs of the community as to embarrass the congregation with debts they 
cannot discharge. We fear that many church buildings now being erected 
are out of date and unsatisfactory the day they are completed. The 
Board's feeling that the time has come when they should place their money 
only in those buildings which meet the standards required by the Sunday 
School Board and the Board of Church Extension, passed the following 
rule : 

"The Secretary shall require the plans of all churches to which grants 
of either donations or loans are made to be submitted to the Department 
of Architecture of the Board of Church Extension for approval. Should 
the plans be unsatisfactory, it is made his duty to suspend payment of the 
grant until the plans are changed to conform to the suggestions of the 
Department of Architecture. A reasonable charge shall be deducted from 
the grant for this service rendered by the Department of Architecture." 

Our General Board at the last annual meeting adopted the following 
recommendation : 

"We recommend that all grants and loans expire at the end of eleven 
months from the date when they are made, and can be continued or re- 
newed only upon the application by the pastor and the official Board or 
the building committee having charge of the houses for which the grants 
were made, provided sixty days' notice has been given by the secretary." 

The Board of Church Extension requests the Bishop to reappoint Dr. 
J. A. Baylor as Architectural Secretary of the General Board of Church 
Extension. 

A glance at the following figures will show the greatness of the need 
for aid in church building today. There were before your Conference 
Board at this time applications for donations amounting to $15,800, with 
less than $4,800 on hand for donations. There were applications for loans 
amounting to $12,570, while we have only $4,781 for that purpose. 

The Board makes donations and loans as follows : 

District. Church. Donation.

SUNDAY SCHOOL BOARD. 

The year has been one of progress in the Sunday school work of the 
Conference. The statistics are not available, but we are led to believe by 
the reports of the presiding elders and other sources of information that 
we have at last attained to the long hoped for goal of 100,000 enrollment ; 
575 Sunday school teachers enrolled in training schools or classes; 490 
certificates, 26 incomplete diplomas, 22 Blue Seal Diplomas, and one Gold 
Seal Diploma were awarded, making a total of 539 awards. Nine county 
and 21 circuit institutions were held, reaching 123 Sunday schools, and 
352 officers and teachers. 

The school for pastors, which is also a school for Sunday School work- 
ers, at Emory and Henry College, was not as largely attended as it should 



HOLSTON ANNUAL 61 



have been, but was, in every other way, highly satisfactory to the Board. 
We have made the same appropriation for its support this year as last, and 
we respectfully ask the Board of Managers to increase the number of 
courses offered to the number required in a standard teacher training 
school and that we recognize this school as a Conference-wide standard 
training school. We urge our schools to send their teachers to the schools, 
assisting them with their expenses where they need help. We nominate 
E. D. Worley and L. W. Pierce as members of the Board of Managers 
for the School. 

We are conscious of the fact that the Sunday School must bear the 
responsibility for making a missionary Church, therefore we rejoice in the 
work being done by Dr. Ed F. Cook for better courses of missionar}^ in- 
struction. We urge all superintendents and workers' councils to give care- 
ful consideration to this part of the instruction in their schools. To those 
schools that have paid out on their Centenary pledge we recommend that 
they continue the five cent, per member, per month, basis of missionary 
offering ; as soon as the list of specials now in preparation is available we 
urge that they select a special. Those schools that have not completed 
their payment of Centenary pledges should do so at once. The efifect of 
failure would be disastrous. 

We urge the observance of the month of December as literature month, 
and recommend that schools promote plans for the establishment of Sun- 
day School libraries. 

We -hope for a larger observance of "Children's Week" and "Parents' 
Day," and recommend that "Parents' Day" be headed up, wherever pos- 
sible, in the organization of a Parent-Teacher Association. 

We commend the wqrk of Rev. B. N. Waterhouse, field worker under 
the General Sunday School Board for coal and oil section of the Ken- 
tucky, Western Virginia and Holston Conferences. 

We recommend to our bureau of specials that the Triangular Moun- 
tain Institute be made a home mission special for Sunday Schools. Since 
our Church has entered into full membership in the International Sunday 
School Council of Religious Education, and since it has been left optional 
with each Conference whether they shall enter the State Councils of the 
same, we recommend that the committee of this board appointed one year 
ago act under the same instructions as given for the past year. 

The work of Rev. S. S. Boyer, Conference Superintendent of Sunday 
Schools, has been highly satisfactory to your board, and we respectfully 
ask Bishop Mouzon for his reappointment to the work. 

We have adopted the following goals for the year : That 200 pro- 
grammes of work C, 100 programmes of work B and as many programmes 
of work A as there are buildings suited to that program be placed during 
the year ; circuit organization wherever possible ; four city Sunday School 
Unions ; at least one Training School in each District and four Standard 
Training vSchools in the Conference; a training class ,or one or more mem- 
bers taking correspondence work in two hundred schools ; Sunday School 
day offering of not less than $2,500; Children's Week observed by a mini- 
mum of three schools in each district; campaign of evangelism, closing 
with "decision day" in every school ; a large number of pastors and lay- 
men attending the Summer School at Emory and Henr}- next summer, 
and each one taking credit work on standard training course; each pastor 
and presiding elder taking one or more units of training course during 
the year; that the number of home departments and the number of home 
department members be doubled; ten thousand members on the "cradle 
roll," and every member of the cradle roll baptized; fifth Sunday Or- 
phanage collection taken in every school, and promptly remitted ; a net 
gain in membership of ten per cent.

BOARD OF MISSIONS. 

Report No. 1. 

We present herewith a statement of policy and by-laws by which the 
Board of Alissions desires to be governed in the discharge of its duties in 
the execution of its trust in regard to the mission charges of the Con- 
ference. 

Whereas, this Board is charged with the responsibility of determining 
what appropriations shall be made to the mission charges of the Confer- 
ence — a responsibility, which, we are glad to say, is shared now by the 
Conference ; and w^hereas, its plain duty is to bring those charges to a 
basis of self-support as speedily as possible, not only for the sake of the 
charges themselves, but also for the sake of releasing money for the de- 
velopment of new and promising fields; therefore, be it 

Resolved, first, that the policy of the Board in supplementing salaries 
of certain of our charges looks only toward temporary relief in getting 
new charges on their feet, the expectation of the Board being that these 
charges will make every effort to attain independency at the earliest pos- 
sible moment 

Resolved, second, that our mission charges be divided into three 
classes: class "A," class "B," and class "C." Class "A" shall comprise all 
charges which shall co-operate with the Board for the purpose of their be- 
coming self-supporting, and shall have their appropriations reduced thirty- 
three and one-third per cent each year. Class "B" shall comprise all 
charges which shall co-operate with the Board for the purpose of their 
becoming self-supporting, and shall have their appropriations reduced 
twenty per cent each year. 

The Board makes the wholesome recommendation that their congre- 
gations increase their salaries to a sum equal, at least, to the amount the 
pastor received with the appropriation before its reduction; that at the 
expiration of three and five years respectively the charges will be inde- 
pendent, and the congregations will have formed the habit of making a 
small increase on the salary each year, thus having laid the foundation for 
continued progress. It is understood, however, that the foregoing is a 



HOLSrON ANNUAL 63 



general rule. The Board, after conferring with the presiding elder, re- 
serves the right to cancel all the appropriation, or any part thereof, from 
any mission, whenever in its judgment it is wise to do so. 

Nothing is further from the mind of the Board than a reduction in 
the support of the preachers in charge of these missions, said support, 
in most cases, being pitifully small. The remedy is not in pauperizing 
with missionary money charges able themselves to give their pastor a com- 
fortable support. Such a policy puts a premium upon non-development 
and makes missionary money hurtful rather than helpful. 

Class "C" shall comprise those charges in purely missionary territory 
which offer no hope of immediate development, and to which the forego- 
ing rule shall not be applied. It is hoped by the Board that a change of 
conditions may result in many of these charges being speedily transferred 
to class "A" or class "B," so that the number of charges in class "C" may 
be kept at a minimum. 

Resolved, third, that every charge attaining unto a self-supporting basis 
be put upon a special roll of honor, and published with our reports in the 
minutes of the Conference. 

Resolved, four, that we request all our preachers to forward all funds 
for our Conference Missions to the Chattanooga Savings Bank, as long as 
it remains General Treasurer of our Conference, as soon as said funds 
are in hand. 

Resolved, five, that the Board shall be further governed by the follow- 
ing by-laws : 

1. The officers of the Conference Board of Missions shall be a presi- 
dent, vice-president, secretary, assistant secretary and treasurer, to be 
elected quadrennially by ballot, who shall perform the duties usually at- 
taching to these offices ; the assistant secretary shall render such service as 
may be directed by the secretary. It shall be the duty of the treasurer to 
sign all checks of the Board. 

2. The officers of the Board shall constitute the executive committee, 
which shall be charged with the duty of enforcing all rules and regulations 
of the board, and of acting for the board in all matters of administration 
in the interim of the board meetings. They shall make a full report of 
their acts to the board for its approval. 

3. A committee on estimates shall be appointed by the president of the 
board, to whom all requests for aid shall be referred. They shall make 
a careful estimate of all the amounts to be appropriated, and of the sum 
needed by the board for its work, and shall report to the board for final 
action, provided that the board may, at its pleasure, consider any or all 
of these items as a committee of the whole. 

4. The board shall hold its annual meeting during the session of the 
Annual Conference, at which time all appropriations for aid to pastoral 
charges shall be made. These appropriations shall not in any year exceed 
ninety per cent of the income of the year ended, and the remaining ten per 
cent shall be applied to our reserve fund until it reaches $10,000.00. 

A Midyear Aleeting shall be held annually with the presiding elders, the 
time and place to be fixed by the executive committee, who shall, in co- 
operation with a presiding elder, appointed b\^ the presiding elders, prepare 
a program lor the meeting. The purpose of this meeting shall be to make 
any necessary readjustments in the appropriations, provided the amount 
appropriated at the annual meeting is not exceeded ; to discuss the work, 
and devise ways and means for making it effective. No changes in the 
interim of the meetings shall be made by the presiding elder, or presiding 
elders, without the action of the executive committee, and such presiding 
elder or presiding elders must then make such changes satisfactory with 
any preacher who may be a loser by such change. All new enterprises to 
be projected and new missions to be established should be presented at 
this meeting. 



64 HOLSTON ANNUAL 

5 The board will decline to make appropriations in the absence of 
satisfactory information, and in order to obtain this information will in- 
sist that the blanks furnished by the board be filled and returned by the 
presiding elder for new missions, and by the presiding elder and quarterly 
conference of charges becoming or continuing missions. 

6 Any district, charge, church, Sunday school, Epworth League, or 
person may assume, in full or in part, the support of a missionary or 
mission established by this board. Their coritributions shall be applied to 
the support of such object or person, provided the funds be sent to the 
Chattanooga Savings Bank, as long as it remains General Treasurer of our 
Conference, and provided further, that collections upon regular assess- 
ments may not be so directed. 

7 The secretary of the board shall make a pay roll for the salaries of 
the missionaries in its employ, quarterly, within fifteen days after the first 
of January, April, July, and October, provided that no checks shall be 
mailed or delivered to any missionary until he has sent a report of his 
work to the assistant secretary, which report is to be made on blanks tur- 
nished by the board. 

8 The treasurer shall pav out funds for Conference missions only 
upon an order in writing from the secretary, and signed by him, except 
for his expenses as treasurer of the board. 

9 Whenever one pastor shall be appointed to serve two charges to 
which appropriations have been made he shall receive only the amount 
appropriated to the charge which is to receive the larger sum ; and when- 
ever such pastor has alreadv received aid from one of the Conference 
Boards he shall receive onlv the amount by which the appropriation ot 
this board exceeds the amount he has received from the other board. 

10 The board shall appropriate out of its funds to pay the expenses 
of the midyear meeting the expenses of the executive committee and ot 
the officers of the board in the discharge of their duties as officers of the 
board. 

11. The board shall send a representative each year to the meeting ot 
the representatives of the Conference Boards of Missions. 

J. M. Carter, President. 
W. P. Eastwood, Secretary. 



Report No. 2. 

The cause of missions is the cause of the Master, and is, therefore, the 
cause of Methodism. We are glad to say that our missionary enterprises 
at home and abroad are making splendid progress, and the outlook tor the 
future is hopeful. , 

The Centenary spirit abides, and while all the pledges have not been 
paid the Centenarv has been the means of enlarging the vision of the 
Church We endorse the pay-up plan of our Centenary Commission 
These pledges must be paid or the Church shall be compelled to curtail 
its work at home and in foreign lands. The Centenary period will -end, 
and in order to avoid any curtailment of our missionary work we hope 
bv a process of missionary education and by the placing of missionary 
specials to continue our work on the same scale m the future as m the 

^^^We urge our pastors and laymen to attend the School of Missions con- 
ducted by our General Board at Lake Junaluska, so that they may impart 
to the Church the missionary information and inspiration received there- 

We heartily endorse the Christian Leaders' Training School at Emory 
and Henry Co'llege, and recommend that our preachers and other religious 
workers avail themselves of the opportunities it affords. 



HOLSTON ANNUAL 



65 



We rejoice in the continued prosperity of our mission school, Hiwassee 
College, and in the fact that its enrollment this year contains thirty minis- 
terial candidates and twelve young men and women who have volunteered 
for life service in definite religious work. We have another mission school^ 
Triangular Mountain Institute, located in Buchanan County, Virginia, by 
virtue of the fact that this property is held by a board of trustees, elected 
by this body, with a title in fee simple which contains our trust clause, 
and by virtue of the fact that this Conference has appointed a board of 
control, and by virtue of the fact of the Episcopal appointment of the ex- 
ecutive head and principal of the institute, this school is recommended to 
the patronage of our people. This school affords our mountain boys and 
girls an opportunity which otherwise they could not have. 

We recommend that while we shall go ahead loyally and whole- 
heartedly with all other great and worthy enterprises committed to our 
hands, every pastor, presiding elder, and Conference secretary hold revi- 
vals this year; that presiding elders organize preachers and laymen in their 
districts, so that by mutual help revivals be held by teams in every church; 
that our district and Conference evangelists confine themselves, except 
where other calls are most urgent, to the holding of revivals in our own 
territory; that all our church organizations concentrate this year upon this 
line of work. 

The Committee on Evangelism recommends, and the Board endorses 
their recommendation, the appointment of -E. L. Addington and J. H. 
Watkins as Conference Evangelists, and R. T. McDowell as District 
Evangelist for the Abingdon District. 

Maryville, Tennessee, has been selected as the place for the Midyear 
Meeting of the Board of Missions, between December fifth and fifteenth.

BOARD OF EDUCATION. 

Report No. 1. 

Each passing day adds emphasis to the wisdom of our church in its 

Christian Education Movement. Never before has there existed such 

comradeship between church and college as has resulted from the united 

efforts of these three years. Bishop, presiding elders, pastors, college men. 



HOLSTON ANNUAL 67 



lay leaders, church collectors, laymen have shared in common the toil and 
the conscious success. 

The Results : 

1. Emory and Henry and Hiwassee Colleges both out of debt. 

2. $40,000.00 added to endowment of Emory and Henry within past 60 
days — $90,000.00 within past two years; new administration building 
for Hiwassee and new gymnasium for Emory and Henry ; $n0,000.00 
raised within past 60 days — $300,000.00 during the past two years. 

3. Better still — a victorious Conference college spirit has been devel- 
oped — enrollment in all our colleges increased ; the number of minis- 
terial students in Emory and Henry and Hiwassee Colleges increased 
10 per cent over last year; the largest class admitted on trial for 
many years, most of them from our own Emory and Henry and 
Hiwassee Colleges. 

The Future: 

1. The confidence in our college and Conference leaders expressed in 
the payment of pledges by our people imposes upon us the responsi- 
bility of wisely administering the funds placed in our hands and of 
carrying forward the movement. 

2. The splendid organizations which have been developed in the local 
churches to be perfected and continued in their fruitful labors ; 
where Christian Education Committee has not been appointed, let 
it be appointed at once ; if collector does not work, appoint another 
in his place. 

3. All needed information to be furnished by Conference Secretary- 
Treasurer; the Christian Education Committee to put folders in 
hands of each subscriber before beginning of pay-up week. 

4. Pay-Up Week November 4-11. 

(a) Suggestion — Instead of preaching sermon on Sunday, Nov. 4, 
pastors and lay speakers make report of Christian Education 
Movement in church at large, in conference, in district, in 
charge in local church. 

(b) Church collectors and committees to see every subscriber, if 
possible, on Sunday, Nov. 4; subscribers not found on Sunday, 
Nov. 4, to be solicited during week ending Nov. 11. 

Conclusion : 

1. We are devoutly grateful to God for the gracious providence which 
has attended us in every step of the Christian Education Movement. 

2. Its success in the future, as in the past, rests with the workers from 
our honored Bishop to the last layman in the last local church.

Report No. 2. 

We endorse the findings of the Conference on Religious Education, 
composed of representatives of Church and State schools, held at Lake 
Junaluska, N. C, the past summer, as follows : 

"1. We believe that the moral and religious are equally as important 
elements of human nature as are the physical and the intellectual, and 
therefore the state should openly and positively recognize the necessity for 
a thorough moral and religious training and should co-operate in securing 
such training as far as the constitutions and the laws of the several states 
of the nation will permit. 

"2. We believe that the state should furnish moral instruction in every 
grade of public school work from the primary grades to the university. 



HOLSTON ANNUAL 



"3. We believe that adequate religious instruction should be provided - 
in every community by the churches acting harmoniously to meet the com- 
munity needs, and that the state authorities should co-operate in every 
proper way to secure the attendance of public school children upon such 
private courses of religious instruction. 

. "4. We believe that even greater emphasis should be placed upon the 
dignity and the responsibility of the teaching profession, and that state, 
church, and private normal schools, colleges, and universities should stress 
even more strongh^ the moral and religious elements necessary in the 
character development of those who are to teach by example as well as 
by precept the young life of the nation." 

An excellent beginning has already been made at the University of 
Tennessee by Church Street Church through the leadership of the pastor, 
Dr. F. J. Prettyman, which we most heartily commend. It is officially re- 
ported to us that four hundred Methodist young men and women are 
enrolled at the university for the school year just beginning. In order to 
assist Church Street Church in giving religious care and instruction to 
these young people, your Board of Education recommends: 

1. That a suitable young man, preacher or layman, be secured as soon 
as possible to undertake this vital work. 

2. That all efforts for the religious welfare of these young people be 
continued by Church Street Church and its pastor. 

3. That a salary of not less than $1,800.00 be provided for this purpose, 
the General Board of Education, the Board of Home Missions and Church 
Street Church sharing equally in providing the same. 

4. That Dr. Stonewall Anderson, Dr. J. W. Perr^^ and Dr. F. J. Pret- 
tyman be appointed a committee to find a suitable man for this work. 

In harmony with the suggestions of our General Board of Education, 
we recommend : 

1. That as preachers and lai-men we keep before our congregations, 
especially our young people, the call to life service. Our General Board 
reports a total of 813 volunteers enlisted with them for some form of Life 
Service ; 359 of these are students for the ministry. We earnestly recom- 
mend that in all our churches a sermon be preached on a call to the 
ministry. 

Until some permanent fund can be provided for the purpose, we com- 
mend to our stronger churches, and our men of means, the necessity of 
helping these candidates for the m.inistry to get a collegiate education. 

2. We commend in the highest possible terms the work done in the 
institute for pastors and Christian workers at Emory and Henry College 
this summer, and we most earnestly urge that this institute be continued 
permanently as a part of our educational program. The one thing that 
marred the efficiency of the 1923 institute w^as the failure of a very large 
number of the undergraduates of the Conference to attend and avail them- 
selves of the advantages provided for them. 

Your Board of Education, by special invitation, went to Princeton, W. 
Va., and looked over the spacious grounds — 62^ acres — and the prepara- 
tions being made to erect thereon a suitable building to be used as a 
Fitting School for Emory and Henry College. This splendid site and 
spacious building will represent when completed a money value of ap- 
proximately $200,000, and will be presented by the good people of Prince- 
ton to the trustees of Emor\^ and Henry Corporation for the use of the 
Methodist Episcopal Church, South. 

We commend the work being done at the Triangular Mountain Insti- 
tute by Rev. B. N. Waterhouse and his associates, and we nominate for it 
the following Board of Control: W. S. Hendricks, Chas. R. Brown and 
J. M. Carter. T. J. Eskridge was selected to represent our Board at the 



HOLSTON ANNUAL 69 



Association of Colleges of the M. E. Church, South. We recommend 
that Dr. I. P. Martin be continued as Secretary of Education for the en- 
suing Conference year. We recommend the observance of Go-to-College 
Day, and refer the matter to a committee composed of the Conference 
Secretary of Education and the presidents of the several colleges. We 
recommend that the following be appointed to school work : H. M. Hous- 
ton, professor in Emory and Henry College; John C. Orr, teacher of the 
Bible in Emory and Henry and Martha Washington Colleges; J. E. Lowr>', 
president of the Hiwassee College; J. W. Malone, president of Centenary 
College; F. K. Suddah, principal of Oceana High School; C. A. Hillman, 
student Emory and Henry College; J. E. Anderson, S. M. U. ; H. S. 
Carter, G. B. I.; C. H. Williams, Emor>' University. 

Following are the educational statistics: Institutions, 4; teachers, 52; 
students, 628; endowment, $175,675.00; value of property, $780,000.00.

SPIRITUAL STATE OF THE CHURCH. 

Your Committee on Spiritual State of the Church rejoices in common 
with all that the reports show that about eleven thousand souls have been 
happily converted to God during the past Conference year, and approxi- 
mately ten thousand have been added to the Church. We are profoundly 
grateful to our heavenly Father that he has heard our prayers and honored 
our efforts in winning so many souls for his kingdom. Our members are 
coming more and more to recognize the claims of our great Church upon 
them, not only in a financial sense, but in the way of growing in grace and 
in the knowledge of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ and walking in 
his precepts blameless. The one great object of our Church is to get souls 
converted to God and to so live that when life's journey is ended they 
may hear the Master say unto them, "Well done, good and faithful serv- 



70 HOLSTON ANNUAL 



ants." If we fail in this we fail in all. May our heavenly Father continue 
his blessings upon us until all who may come in touch with us may not 
only have their names written upon our Church register, but when all 
may have their names written in the Lamb's book of life. 

G. W. Jackson, Secretary. 



O 



BIBLE BOARD. 

Your Board believes that next to the gift of Christ, God's greatest 
gift to man is the Bible. It is adapted to the universal life of man as no 
other book. The Bible is the book of the people, and not the special book 
of the priest, from which to set forth some secret, unknown doctrine, 
withheld from the common understanding of men, but a great book of 
revelation that has revealed the people to themselves. It was a book 
withheld for long ages from the people. The Bible reveals every man to 
himself as a distinct moral agent, responsible not to men, but responsible 
through his own conscience to his Lord and Maker. Whenever a man 
sees this vision, he stands up a free man, whatever may be the government 
under which he lives. A man has found himself when he has found his 
relation to the rest of the universe. The Bible is the book in which those 
relations are set forth. So we look upon the Bible as the great charter 
of the human soul. We are not to judge progress by material standards. 
America is not ahead of other nations because she is rich. If a nation or 
an individual is great it is because their thoughts, ideas and life measure 
up to the standard set forth in the written pages of God's eternal truth. 
We believe the Bible has stood at the back of every progress for good of 
individuals or nations. What the Bible has done for us it can do for 
other races. It lives and it gives life, because it itself is throbbing with 
divine life. We who have profited most by the Scriptures are bound alike 
by duty, gratitude and self-interest to put them within the reach of all 
our fellow-men. 

We endorse the work of the American Bible Society and believe it 
worthy of our support. It unites many denominations in the work to in- 
crease the circulation of the Scripture. 

Our treasurer, Chattanooga Savings Bank, reports up to date $1,574.40 
collected by our Holston's pastors, and there is a balance yet to our credit 
of $190.20. This is reserved for use in the Conference, especially for those 
of foreign birth. The figures reported leaves us a shortage of $774.40. 
We recommend that $1,800.00 be levied next year and that it be appor- 
tioned among the districts as it was this year. 

W. S. Lyons, Chairman. 
Y. W. Brooks, Secretary. 



DISTRICT CONFERENCE RECORDS. 

All the records except that of the Chattanooga District were before us. 
The Abingdon, Cleveland, Knoxville, Morristown, Radford, and Tazewell 
records are free from criticism ; the minutes are entered in excellent form. 
The Morristown, Abingdon, and Radford minutes are neatly written.

The Bluefield record has the official roll pasted in the book; with this 
exception the book is in good condition. The minutes of the Wytheville 
District are entered in poor form, otherwise they are free from criticism. 
The official roll for the Big Stone Gap District is incomplete. As a whole, 
all of the records before us are well kept and we congratulate the secre- 
taries for their efficient work. 



J. W. Hammer, Secretary. 



C. E. LuNDY, Chairman. 







EPWORTH LEAGUES. 

We now have 173 chapters. Great gains were made last year. Special 
attention is called to the Wytheville District that increased from four to 
fifteen chapters, and the Big Stone Gap District which gained from 
twenty-three to forty-five chapters. 

The Annual Assembly at Martha Washington College was very suc- 
cessful, 225 being enrolled. We plan for 300 in 1924. The faculty num- 
bered twenty-five, composed of Bishop DuBose, Dr. Dan B. Brummitt, W. 
T. Echols and other strong men. A large number of young people volun- 
teered their lives to Christian service as a result of the Assembly. 

The membership of the Epworth Leagues has increased over the pre- 
vious year, and prospects for the coming year are very hopeful. 

We wish to call the attention of the presidents of Emory and Henry, 
Martha Washington, and Centenary Colleges, and the pastors at these 
places, that these institutions have not an Epw^orth League ; we recommend 
that Leagues be organized in these schools, if possible. 

We urge the pastors to put forth a special effort this year to get the 
young men to work in the Leagues, our attention having been called to the 
fact that most of our League leaders are young ladies. 

We think it wise to defer for one year the appointment of a field secre- 
tary, and employ instead League men from our own and other Confer- 
ences, or from the central office, to help us carry out League institutes 
throughout the Conference. 

In view of the resolution read and adopted October 6, 1923, from the 
Epworth League Union of the city of Knoxville, and realizing the need 
for periodical teaching and study of the principles and history of Meth- 
odism, we, the Epworth League Board of the Holston Annual Conference, 
now in session at Bluefield, West Virginia, recommend that on Epworth 
League anniversary day, or as near thereto as possible, throughout the 
Holston Conference in Sunday Schools, Epworth Leagues, preaching 
services and the midweek prayer meetings, that we study the principles, 
history, truths and facts about Methodism so that the younger generation 
will know what she is built upon and what she stands for, and, knowing, 
become stronger Christians and more effective leaders of our Church. 

H. B. VauGht, President. 
G. K. Patty, V.-P., Sec. Pro Tern.

SABBATH OBSERVANCES. 

The Sabbath is a divine institution ordained of God for man's benefit, 
and is fundamental to national life and religious liberty. Man was not 
made for the Sabbath, but the Sabbath for man, which is the highest, the 
holiest and most authoritative comment ever made on this holy command- 
ment. This day guards two great events of divine history — the creation 
and the resurrection. A meditation on the first keeps God in his place as 
creator and benefactor; the other keeps man holy and vigilant for the full- 
ness of that faith which makes man immortal and heaven a reality. 

A disregard of this day is fatal to man, to family and to nations. Its 
desecration betokens and predicts desolation and ruin. He that misuses 
this day does it to his own hurt. It is enacted and written into the very 
structure of the world in which we live. It is the friend of man, the beati- 
tude of labor, the symbol of heaven and the palace of peace to the weary 
soul. As a Church we have ever ke^t this day holy. We must and will 
keep it to the end of our mission. 

1st. Therefore, be it 'resolved that every preacher in this Conference 
year preach one sermon, at least, on its observance to every congregation 
in his charge. 

2nd. Be it resolved that all our people be urged to be consistent and 
set an example to the world by a faithful and conscientious observance of 
the Sabbath. 

H. S. Hamilton, Chairman.

74 HOLSTON ANNUAL 



MEMOIRS 



BISHOP R. G. WATERHOUSE. 

Richard Green Waterhouse, son of Franklin and Lorinda Rachel 
(Thompson) Waterhouse, was born near Spring City, Rhea County, 
Tennessee, December 24, 1855. His early education was secured in 
the common schools of the county and in two high schools. Later he 
attended Hiwassee College and still later Emory and Henry College. 
He graduated at the latter institution in 1885. He read much and kept 
up with current events. 

His conversion occurred in 1873, though he must have been ripe 
for that experience long before. When a boy plowing in the field he 
carried a pocket Bible, took it out at the end of the row, got a verse in 
his mind and meditated on it while plowing to the next turn. He was 
licensed to preach in January, 1878, by the quarterly conference of the 
Kingston Circuit, Sequatchie District, Rev. T. F. Glenn, now of the 
Western North Carolina Conference, being the pi-esiding elder. He 
was admitted on trial into the Holston Conference in 1878, at Church 
Street, Knoxville, Bishop Kavanaugh presiding. Two years later he 
was received into full connection, and was ordained Deacon at Morris- 
town, Tenn., by Bishop McTyeire. At Cleveland, Tenn., in 1885, he 
was ordained an Elder by Bishop Keener. 

His first appointment was Altamont and Spencer Mission, in the 
Sequatchie District; in 1880 he was sent to Jonesboro; in 1881 he was 
read out as junior preacher on the Abingdon Circuit, which meant that 
he had entered Emory and Henry College. For four years he remained 
there, receiving nominal appointments. In 1885 he was sent to Cente- 
nary, Knoxville, a city mission with a handful of members. The next 
fall he was sent to Church Street, Knoxville, about the biggest ap- 
pointment in the Conference. The reading out of his name was re- 
ceived with a burst of applause by the congregation he was to serve. 

During his pastorate there he went to Crystal Springs, Miss., after 
his bride. Miss Carrie Steele, the wedding occurring February 3, 1887. 
The marriage was a happy one, though not for a prolonged continu- 
ance, since she died September 11, 1891, leaving one child, a daughter, 
Edith. The quadrennium of service at Church Street was a success. 
Following it. Dr. Waterhouse was made presiding elder of the Radford 
District in Virginia. His wife died while he was on the district. The 
blow staggered him, but his faith was strong and his courage sure. 
In 1892 he was made professor of mental and moral science in Emory 
and Henry College, which position he held for two years, when he was 
called to take the presidency of the institution, succeeding Dr. James 
Atkins, who afterward became bishop. 

It is generally conceded that the outstanding work of his life was 
as president of Emory and Henry College. He was connected with 
the institution as student, teacher, and president. The college was 
deeply in debt — $65,000 being the obligation. Only a few persons knew 
how he labored to get rid of that incubus. Under his management the 
credit of the institution was established and the bulk of the indebted- 
ness provided for. He labored with faith that the Church would recog- 
nize the importance of Christian education, and that Holston would see 
that Emory and Henry College was the place for the education of the 
young men of the Conference. Through all those toiling years, filled 
with burdens and sleepless tossings, he served on the pitiful salary of 
$1,300, with a house and garden thrown in. Again and again he was 
offered twice as much and more, but he resolutely remained at his 



HOLSTON ANNUAL 75 



post. He spoke of the students as "his boys," and showed ability in 
planning to help the needy ones through college. 

At MorristouTi, Tenn., October 10, 1894, he was again united in 
marriage, this time to Mrs. M. R. Carriger, a niece of Drs. R. N. and 
W. H. Price, her mother, Mrs. Thomas, being a sister of these distin- 
guished brothers. The two sons bom to Dr. and Mrs. Waterhouse still 
live. Mrs. Carriger was prominent in church work, particularly in 
the woman's missionary circles. For many years the home of Dr. 
Waterhouse witnessed the extraordinary family circle with two 
mothers-in-law in it. Mrs. Steele and Mrs. Thomas were honored 
members of the family. If there was ever the semblance of a ripple 
of discord, the closest neighbors never heard about it. This. was as 
much a tribute to the gentle disposition of those two saintly mothers 
in Israel as to any other influence, perhaps, but it was also a tribute 
to the serenity of that home circle. Mrs. Steele and Mrs. Thomas were 
congenial friends, and always went to Sunday School and church to- 
gether. Mrs. Steele once wrote to the .second Mrs. Waterhouse, "No 
matter what betides, you and I have in each other a friend." 

Dr. Waterhouse was a member of the General Board of Education 
and a trustee of Emory and Henry and Martha Washington Colleges. 
He was elected to the General Conferences of 1894, 1898, 1902, 1906 
and 1910, leading the delegation in 1910. When the vote was an- 
nounced that he and the now sainted Walter Lambuth had both been 
elected bishops, having tied on the ballot, he bowed his head and 
sobbed. While he appreciated the high honor, he realized the respon- 
sibility, and prayed that he might be found worthy. 

Bishop Waterhouse was a man of deep religious convictions. He 
wanted to do the right thing. He did not hesitate to speak his mind. 
Indeed, sometimes his plainness of speech came to the point of blunt- 
ness. If his candor sometimes hurt somebody's feelings, he was ten- 
derly ready to make amends. If reproof was needed, he reproved; if 
commendation was due, he commended. One who was close to him in 
his official college life tells me that he was often at the mercy-seat, 
seeking help of his heavenly Father. 

As a preacher of the gospel he had few superiors. I heard him 
once sweep an Annual Conference, other than his own, off its feet with 
a tide of spiritual power that brought triumphant shouts from the 
saints before the sermon was concluded. Some thought that the 
Bishop was given to memorizing his sermons, but those who best 
knew his habits declare that this was not the fact. His well-rounded 
periods were so chaste and symmetrical and eloquent they seemed im- 
possible of spontaneous origin, but the gift was his. Lying on bed 
or couch, with his hands locked under his head, and his mind going 
like a dynamo, he forged out his message, and trusted to the inspi- 
ration of the hour of delivery through the help of the Holy Spirit. 

The College of Bishops sent him to the Pacific Coast. He believed 
in living within the bounds of his episcopal district, and moved at 
once to Los Angeles, California, where he remained for the four years 
of his ecclesiastical quadrennium. Dr. R. P. Howell, in the Christian 
Advocate, said: "In this land of many cults and strange doctrines he 
was a tower of strength in lifting men to the ideals of Christ. * * * 
He rendered to the Church during the four years of his superintend- 
ency a transcendental service." 

Bishop Waterhouse had an unusual physique and was one of the 
finest looking of men. But disease began to undennine his strength 
soon after his elevation to the episcopacy. With blood bounding, it 
was a source of wonder to all that he lasted so long. Coming back 
from the West, he held two sessions of his own Conference, Holston, 
which he loved so well. It was manifest that he was sorely stricken. 



76 HOLSTON ANNUAL 



When he walked feebly into the last session of our Conference at 
Bristol, the body stood in reverential affection as he passed slowly up 
the aisle. He was asked by Bishop Mouzon to conduct the memorial 
service, which he did simply and tenderly as he had done the year be- 
fore. By vote of the Conference his name has been retained on the 
roster all these years. 

A short time before the last Conference session he moved from 
Emory, Va., so dear to his heart, to Knoxville, where his sons, 
Eichard and Leon, live. Here, not long after the Conference, on a 
rainy afternoon, he was knocked down by an automobile, his skull 
fractured, his arm broken in two places, and other bruises inflicted. 
He never regained consciousness, though he was hurried to a hos- 
pital, where he soon passed away. Forty preachers of the Holston 
Conference attended his funeral at Emory, December 11, 1922. 
Rev. John C. Orr, the pastor at Emory and Bible teacher in the 
college — highly esteemed by the Bishop and his wife — had charge 
of the service. Dr. W. S. Neighbors, of Centenary Church, Chatta- 
nooga, a lifelong friend, preached from the text, "Well done, good and 
faithful servant." Other preachers participating were: Dr. I. P. 
Martin, of Abingdon; Rev. E. F. Kahle, of Abingdon; Dr. F. J. Pretty- 
man, of Knoxville; Dr. E. E. Wiley, of Morristown; Dr. Eugene Blake, 
of the Orphanage at Greeneville, a Conference classmate; Dr. J. S. 
French, presiding elder of the Knoxville District; Dr. J. W. Moore, of 
the Virginia Conference. On the hillside where so many Holston he- 
roes sleep, the Bishop was laid to rest. In the Church triumphant he 
had entered into the rest which remaineth to the people of God 

JAMES A. BURROW. 



RICHARD N. PRICE 

Nearly a century of eventful years ran their course between the 
birth and the death of this distinguished man. Richard Nye Price was 
born in Elk Garden, Va., July 30, 1830, and passed to his reward at 
Morristown, Tenn., February 7, 1923. Thus came to its close a life 
oldest in years and longest in ministerial service in all the annals of 
Holston Methodism. It is also true, perhaps, that he served in a larger 
number of relationships than any other member of this body, past or 
present. Almost none were the Conference activities in which he did 
not engage, and every kind of appointment in the list he was called 
upon, at one time or another, to fill. Besides being a local preacher, 
he served as junior preacher, circuit rider, station pastor, presiding 
elder, Conference secretary, General Conference delegate, college pro- 
fessor, college president, editor of the Conference organ, chaplain in 
two wars thirty years apart, and finally as Conference historian and 
author. In each of these, by all accounts, he acquitted himself with 
credit, the officer was equal to his office. In some of them he dis- 
played a talent that was conceded without a question. 

In the background of his career are to be found a series of facts 
full of interest and by no means unimportant. The first was his con- 
version at the age of eleven. This occurred at Lebanon Camp Ground, 
Washington County, Virginia, whither his father had moved. Four 
years later he entered Emory and Henry College as a student. In 
1849 came the great revival among the students, led by President 
Collins and the sainted Gannaway. Practically every unsaved boy 
in the institution was swept into the kingdom, and a group afterwards 
to become outstanding men were led by a definite call into the ministry. 
In this group was R. N. Price. The following autumn he was received 
on trial into this Conference and set out horseback, in true itinerant 
fashion, for the Asheville circuit in company with James A. Reagan,

his senior, David Sullins, his college friend, and George W. Alexander. 

It was in North Carolina that his marriage occurred, in May, 1855. 
He writes: "On Tuesday evening the 8th, Rev. Wm. M. Kerr will unite 
me to Miss Ann Edgeworth Vance in the holy bonds of wedlock. In 
selecting her for a companion, I have endeavored to have God's glory 
in view." One may easily fancy a divine leading in the choice he 
made. Holding family connections of national distinction and graced 
with the ornamentation of the best in Christian womanhood, his com- 
panion proved to be everything he could have wished. Indeed, the 
name of Mrs. Ann Vance Price kept pace with his own in winning its 
way into popular esteem. Of the ten children, composing with them 
the familv group, only four remain: Rev. D. Vance Price, of Mount 
Airy, N. C; Prof. R. N. Price of Batesville Miss.; Mrs. F. V. Hardy, 
and Miss Annie Laurie Price, of Memphis, Tenn, 

His public service found expression, as these chronicles reveal, both 
by voice and pen. Of this twofold ministry, it is difficult to affirm 
which proved the more useful, or which harmonized better with his 
gifts. As a pastor and instructor of the people he leaves behind him 
a worthy record. No flock committed to his keeping suifered either 
from pangs of hunger or peril of wolves. Thirty-one years of pastoral 
service, diligent, painstaking and fruitful, are in themselves a meri- 
torious, if not a sufficient, legacy. But along with this are to be 
reckoned his labor as editor and historian, covering approximately a 
quarter of a century, labors which embraced multitudes of contribu- 
tions to the press and five octavo volumes of carefully written books. 
It is as though two busy lives were blended into one. 

Dr. Price was a preacher of ability. He was positive in his asser- 
tions, deliberate in his manner, and never obscured his ideas with a 
barrage of mere vrords. Didactic rather than hortatory, composed 
rather than impassioned, he made his appeal to the will through the 
mind more than through the emotions. Though well acquainted with 
him as far back as I can remember, I confess to somewhat of wonder 
at the marked results that followed his ministry, particularly in the 
earlier years. Evidently he was a man of power in the pulpit. All 
over his large circuits, and in a number of the stations, he had the 
evangelistic fires ablaze, and the church rolls were constantly growing 
by the addition of new-born souls. The names of this multitude are 
not known to us now, of course, but there are two which found their 
way to the roll of the Holston Conference — Mitchell P. Swaim, of 
precious memory, and Absalom D. Stewart, whose name will be called 
today by the Committee on Memoirs. His sermons were not restricted 
in number, nor did he confine himself to favorite texts and familiar 
themes. He left record of a resolve he made at the beginning, viz., 
to analyze one text each day. To these texts he applied the powers 
of his mind, and from them evolved a range of discourses applying to 
every variety of occasion, and developed and multiplied sermons that 
rarely failed to interest minds of the thoughtful type. 

A mental problem interested him intensely. It appealed to him 
as a sort of challenge, and he promptly accepted the gage of battle. 
He was little disposed to follow the beaten paths in his mental exer- 
cises. Whether in the realm of science, metaphysics or interpretation, 
he chose his direction, blazed his way and arrived at his conclusions 
by process of original, and at times unique, thinking. He was an ac- 
complished mathematician, and occupied the chair of Mathematics in 
Emory and Henry College for a number of years. 

It is as an author that Dr. Price will be longest remembered. De- 
spite the fact that he began the History of Holston Methodism after 
reaching his three score and tenth year and completed it after the 
four score years had passed, it proved to be his most virile and diffi- 



78 , HOLSTON ANNUAL 



cult achievement. He had had no previous experience in bookmaking, 
but his pen had been busy with his Conference organ. His writings 
there varied from descriptive travel to the weightier discussion of 
issues and doctrine. In addition to this, he had lived into the third 
generation of his times, and knew by personal contact what others 
knew, if at all, only by tradition. Thus furnished, he entered the field 
of authorship. It became apparent at once that his production was 
to take its place among the best in church literature. He assembled a 
wealth of facts, and speech and deeds of persistent men, many of them 
endowed in mind, all of them possessed of great souls, and set them 
forth in narrative, picturesque, vivid, affecting. How much of event 
and inspiration he has rescued from the shadows of f orgetfulness, how 
many heroes of the faith, great in their goodness, he has made to live 
again among us we cannot assess; Axley and Wexler and Sevier with 
their eloquence, Stevens and Haskew with their consecration, John 
Adam Granade with his amazing zeal, Patton and Stringfield, de- 
fenders of the faith of the Wesleys. These are but a tithe of them, 
apostles of the past, who being dead yet continue to speak through 
this product of his brain and heart. 

In the opinion of Macaulay, "to be a great historian is the rarest 
of intellectual distinctions." The observation is a just one in the light 
of his discriminating review of the historians and the histories. Their 
emphasis is misplaced. They dilate upon war and only hint at re- 
ligion; they make much of councils and dynasties and diplomacy, and 
pass by the prophet who sees a vision and delivers himself of a burden. 
Precisely here has Dr. Price measured up to the standard of the bril- 
liant English essayist. His facts support his theme and his theme 
accounts for the progress and development of the people concerning 
whom he writes. One may safely venture that future judgment will 
accord to him a place of rank in that field of endeavor. 

Shall I speak of him as a Christian, the man apart from an office, 
the soul face to face with God? There recently came into my hand 
the personal journal kept by him for many years. Men, measures and 
incidents have their place in these autograph volumes, to be sure, but 
they are quite incidental. The moods of his soul, the upreaching of 
his aspirations, the intimacies of the hidden fellowships, these are their 
theme. Let it be remembered that he did not make this record for the 
eye of the world. He was tracing the biography of his heart for him- 
self alone. And yet how exalting to those of us who knew and loved 
him! Its notes ranged from the minor chord of confession to the joy- 
ous paean of praise. So slight a thing as levity at times brought him 
remorse, and neglect of some duty was the occasion of the most genuine 
contrition. On the other hand, the spiritual tides were often at their 
flood, as, for example, when he notes: "On Tuesday, the 13th of No- 
vember, in the morning, I received a great blessing. It appeared to be 
the blessing of perfect love. Oh, the sweetness I enjoyed! I desired 
to see those that feared God to tell them what had been done for my 
soul." One cannot trace these pages, stained with age, but untar- 
nished by a solitary unworthy sentence, without being made sure that 
the streams of the Spirit flowed within him. In later years he spoke 
now and then of the joys which came to him alone at his home; and 
familiar indeed was the picture in his home church, the church he 
served as pastor for two full terms, of tliis venerable man, with bent 
form, trudging to his seat at the chancel to join in a service of wor- 
ship. His absence there, and here, makes a difference. 

The close of his life came without the jar and shock of tragedy. 
There was no disease, with its stroke, no malady with its pain. The 
hour had simply come in the order of providence when God would take 
up his servant into heaven, and the journey from Gilgal to Jordon 



HOLSTON ANNUAL 79 



was ended. I stood with the family at eventide as the time of his 
translation drew near. A glint of heaven's light relieved the darkness 
and on his face I noted the expression of serene expectancy, an ex- 
pectancy now to be rewarded by the unfolding of the mysteries hid in 
God. How often had he contemplated these in the long years agone. 
The note of grief changed to that of exalted wonder in that hallowed 
hour and one's heart could scarce suppress the cry, "My father, my 
father, the chariot of Israel and the horsemen thereof." And we pause 
here today with eyes uplifted whither our ascended father has gone, 
uncertain which sentiment outweighs the other — our poverty in having 
lost him, or our riches in having possessed him.

WILLIAM WARD HICKS. 

The subject of this sketch was bom May 11, 1849, in Washington 
County, Virginia, near Emory and Henry College. He departed this 
life November 11, 1922, at Norfolk, Va. At the time of his birth his 
father was preacher in charge of the Abingdon District. He was the 
son of Rev. William and Elizabeth Hicks, of sacred memory in an- 
other generation. Brother Hicks was educated at Emory and Henry 
College, where he early gave evidence of an alert, brilliant mind and 
an attractive personality, which characterized him throughout his ca- 
reer. He professed religion and joined the Methodist Episcopal 
Church, South, at the Bluestone camp-ground in Tazewell County, Vir- 
ginia. He married Mary Ann Bane, the daughter of Russell and 
Nancy Bane, October 3, 1872, Rev. Tyler Frazier performing the mar- 
riage ceremony. He was licensed to preach March 22, 1875, at John- 
son's Chapel, now Graham, Va. Rev. George Stewart was the presid- 
ing elder, Rev. W. H. Kelly, preacher in charge, and William Summers, 
the secretary of the quarterly conference that licensed him to preach. 
The following October he was admitted on trial into the traveling con- 
nection of the Holston Conference at Knoxville, Tenn. His first charge 
was the Hillsville Circuit in Carroll County, Virginia. The writer re- 
members him as a tall, handsome, popular Methodist preacher while 
serving his first charge. 

Brother Hicks was in the active service for forty-two years as a 
circuit preacher, station preacher and presiding elder. He served the 
Abingdon, Marion, Knoxville and Morristown Districts as presiding 
elder. Among the large number of appointments which he served were 
Hillsville, Castlewood, Elk Garden, Lead Mines, Church Street, Knox- 
ville, Chilhowie, Newbern, Graham, Coebum, and others. His last 
charge was Coebum, which he faithfully and ably served for two years 
and from which he superannuated in the fall of 1917. Thereafter he 
lived in Bluefield and Norfolk with his children. Brother Hicks pos- 
sessed a striking and distinguished appearance which would make him 
notable in any gathering of people. He was congenial and fluent in 
conversation and with a personality that won him the friendship of 
thousands. 

As a preacher he possessed the qualities of a combination of a great 
textual and expository speaker. He was thorough and exhaustive in 
the marshalling of his arguments, reaching many climaxes of unusual 
beauty and power. He was not the echo of other men's minds, but 
was independent, resourceful and versatile. He was well read in gen- 
eral literature and Methodist theology. In his sermons he often quoted 
many beautiful excerpts from the masters of literature and hymnology. 
With them he aptly adorned a story and pointed a moral of great 
excellence. 

The writer was his presiding elder during the last year of his 
service in Coebum, Virginia. His ministry was efficient and very 



80 HOLSTON ANNUAL 



greatly appreciated. About the close of the year he reached a de- 
cision to take the superannuate's relation. He spoke feelingly of his 
love for the ministry and expressed his regrets in giving up his charge. 
He said, "I am brought to realize that my physical powers are waning 
but spiritual energies are waxing." Soon after he retired from the 
active service, rapid physical decline was apparent to all who knew 
him. As he was nearing the end he was heard to say in an audible 
voice, "Come up higher," and the tired, worn body fell on sleep and 
his soul took its flight to his God. Peace be to his ashes. The body 
was buried from Bland Street Church, Rev. T. S. Hamilton, assisted 
by the other Methodist pastors of the city, conducting the funeral 
services. His body rests in the Walnut Grove Cemetery, Bluefield.

JOHN C. BAYS 

John C. Bays was born in Russell County, Virginia, July 23, 1852. 
He died January 25, 1923, in Chattanooga, in the parsonage of Trinity 
Methodist Episcopal Church, South, of which his son. Rev. J. Alexander 
Bays, was pastor. He was a brother of Rev, W. W. Bays and Rev. 
H. W. Bays, both of whom preceded him to heaven. He was not gifted 
as were these two eloquent brothers, but no purer, better man, I think, 
ever answered roll call in Holston Conference. 

I met John C. Bays in Castlewood, Russell County, Virginia, in 
1877, where we both went to school to Rev. George A. Frazier. We 
studied together, we worked together, we preached together, we played 
together, and we knew and loved each other. We were brethren in- 
deed and in truth. John C. Bays was a good man. He was converted 
in early life and felt that he was called by the Holy Ghost to preach 
the gospel. He was licensed to preach, and preached his first sermon 
in Russell County, Virginia, the home of his parents. The first text he 
used was Heb. 2:3 — "How shall we escape if we neglect so great sal- 
vation?" The last sermon he preached was at Rossville, Ga., from St. 
John 6:20: "And he said, it is I, be not afraid." I am sure he was 
not afraid to stand in the presence of his Lord. 

He was married to Miss Sarah Gage Findley, of Washington 
County, Virginia, October 26, 1886. To this union was born three 
children. The first-born died in infancy. Two boys, Rev. J. A. Bays 
of Holston Conference, and W. H. Bays of Cleveland, Ohio, survive 
their parents, who left these boys a noble heritage. 

John C. Bays was a true Methodist preacher. He was a firm be- 
liever in the doctrines and polity of the Methodist Church. He not only 
believed them, but, better than believing them, he lived them. He was 
attacked by that awful disease, the "flu," January 1, 1923 and when his 
preacher son was called by urgent matters to Virginia, he hesitated 
to go, but the undaunted father said, "No, no, my son, it is your duty; 
go and I will be taken care of." He recovered from the attack, but it 
left him with a weak heart. A few weeks later he was again stricken, 
from which attack he did not rally. His younger son was sent for, 
and came to his father's bedside and witnessed his going home. 

He gave explicit directions concerning his funeral, which were fully 
complied with. The funeral services were conducted from Trinity 
Church by Dr. J. A. Burrow and Rev. P. P. Martin, assisted by the 
Chattanooga pastors. As his remains were brought into the church 
the choir sang, as he requested, "Praise God from whom all blessings 
flow." He was buried beside his good wife in the cemetery at Abing- 
don, Va. Thus ended a noble life. "Servant of God, well done!"

JOHN WILLIAM RADER. 



John William Rader, son of Mr. and Mrs. Henry Rader, was born 
in East Radford, Va., March 19, 1869, the family moving later to 
Christian sburg, Va. He was licensed to preach in August, 1889, at 
Aubern, Va., under the presiding eldership of Rev. W. W. Pyott, of 
sacred memory. He was admitted on trial into the Holston Confer- 
ence at Broad Street, Knoxville, in 1893, with Bishop W. W. Duncan 
presiding. The class numbered nineteen — one of the largest in our 
history. He was received into full connection in 1899, at Bluefield, W. 
Va., with Alpheus W. Wilson presiding. His ordination as Elder took 
place at Church Street, Knoxville, in 1901, with Bishop Hendrix pre- 
siding. 

Brother Rader served the following charges: Bluestone Circuit, 
two years; Honaker, Va., two years; Elkhorn and Mabeury, W. Va., 
three years; Highland Avenue, Knoxville, four years; Bluefield Dis- 
trict, one year; Big Stone Gap District, four years; East Radford Sta- 
tion, two years; Wytheville Station, four years; Wytheville District, 
four years; Chattanooga District, two years. 

His educational advantages had not been the best. He was some- 
what awkward in the pulpit. His rugged personality and unquestioned 
physical and moral courage conquered many difficulties. It was not 
altogether safe for a bully to attempt to run over him. His friendship 
was of the true and abiding sort. He grew in pulpit power, and in the 
grace of free and easy fellowship, and developed an executive ability 
that made him one of our most useful men. As a presiding elder he 
stood well to the front with the leaders, helping his preachers to bring 
up their work in a creditable way. He was a successful Methodist 
preacher. 

While at Highland Avenue, Knoxville, he met his fate in the person 
of Miss Laurie Holloman. They were married November 6, 1906, and 
lived happily together to the day of his passage. She was beautiful in 
person, sympathetic, devoted, helpful. I cannot say too much of her 
tender ministrations to him during that last prolonged battle for his 
life. Sickness was much in their home — repeated surgical operations 
having to be performed, with first one and then the other under the 
surgeon's knife. In a Bluefield sanitarium, he went down to the 
water's edge, and in Bluefield, recently, she, too, went down almost to 
the chilling tide. Their only child, "Billy," is now a husky, growing boy. 

You remember Brother Rader's pathetic appearance at our last 
■Conference in Bristol. Some of us tried to keep him from attending 
but in vain. Perhaps it was best that he came to take his last blessed 
fellowship with the Conference which he loved with a full heart. Some 
of you will recall his humor on the Conference floor in referring to the 
doctor's orders for rest as a good reason for not having to get out of 
bed too soon. How he enjoyed that Conference! In spite of the stamp 
of the inevitable on his face, there came a sparkle to his eyes and a 
flush on his white cheeks that almost made us expect a stay of that 
inevitable. At first he rebelled against superannuation, but soon 
sensibly came to see that it was best. 

When the family of three returned to Chattanooga, with the exhila- 
ration of Conference gone, and the inevitable again staring him in the 
face, he stopped to rest on the district parsonage steps, sat down, 
and said with infinite pathos: ''Job gone; home gone; health gone!" 
Who could blame him for buiying his face in his hands and weeping? 
O, haste ye. Dr. Luther Todd, and your great Movement, to rescue 
these worn-out itinerant heroes from just such a situation and scene 
as that! Under, the leadership of that staunch layman and preachers' 
friend, Mr. W. E. Brock, of Chattanooga, with the fine co-operation 
of Holson's presiding elders and Holston's generous people, the finan- 



82 HOLSTON ANNUAL 



cial cloud was lifted. Hospital conveniences and comforts were pro- 
vided for weeks and weeks without worry to the sick man. Over and 
over he expressed his deep appreciation, and declared that he was not 
worthy. I must w^rite down a special mention of Mr. Brock, who never 
faltered in his watchful care; of Dr. Laws, the good physician; of Eev. 
J. A. Bays, the constant attendant; and of Miss Edith Walton, of 
Highland Park, whose home was a haven until Mrs. Rader was forced 
to go to the hospital herself for medical attention. Only the gravity 
of her husband's illness stayed the surgeon's knife from her own suf- 
fering flesh. 

One day I stood at the bedside of my failing friend, whe^ he said: 
"Tell the boys that all is well. I lie here calmly waiting my Father's 
will, and there is no fear." So the long hopeless struggle ended at 
last, and our brother beloved went to his real home. His mortal re- 
mains were taken to Trinity Church, where a tender funeral service 
was held by Dr. S. D. Long, Dr. W. S. Neighbors, and the preachers 
of our Chattanooga churches. I grieved much over being sick in bed 
with the influenza. Rev. J. A. Bays and Rev. C. G. Eastwood ac- 
companied the body to Emory, Va., where the burial took place on the 
hill overlooking the college campus. 

Mrs. Rader is far away under California skies in the home of her 
brother, for a year of complete rest, but her heart is here with us. A 
letter received from her during this Conference says that the doctor 
has again ordered her to bed. She asked me to express her deep appre- 
ciation to all for kindnesses without limit. 

JAMES A. BURROW. 



ABSALOM DEAKINS STEWART 

Absalom Deakins Stewart, son of George and Martha Deakins 
Stewart, was born January 17, 1833, on a farm near Dunlap, Marion 
(now Sequatchie) County, Tennessee. On February 8, 1866, he was 
married to Mrs. Jennie Bennett McCullough. To this union were born 
the following children: Judge T. L. Stewart, of Winchester, Tenn.; 
Mrs. Robert Mauzy, of Phoenix, Ariz.; W. B. Stewart, of South Pitts- 
burg, Tenn.; Mrs. Mattie Anderson and Mrs. J. W. Atkins, of Gastonia, 
N. C; Rev. R. A. Stewart, of Sweetwater, Tex.; and Mrs. L. N. 
Spears, of Chattanooga, Tenn. 

He was converted early in life and soon became an active and use- 
ful member of the church. He began his college course at Burrett 
College and finished at Emory and Henry College. At the time of 
his death he was the oldest living alumnus of Emory and Henry. He 
joined the Holston Conference in the fall of 1858 at Chattanooga, 
Tenn. And w^as an effective member of the same for forty-one years. 
Among the charges served by him were Hillsville, Va., Asheville and 
Hendersonville Stations in North Carolina, Bristol and Chattanooga. 
At the close of the Civil War he was appointed to a charge in the 
Chattanooga District, where he did a heroic work in gathering to- 
gether and reorganizing the Southern Methodists who had been badly 
scattered and greatly discouraged by the war. The Southern Presby- 
terians were his friends. They graciously tendered him the use of 
their house of worship and assisted him in every way possible in his 
undertaking. He frequently spoke with feeling of their brotherly 
kindness. It was during his pastorate and under his leadership that 
the lot was secured on which the old Market Street church was built. 
Methodism in Chattanooga owes much to the foresight, faithfulness 
and consecration of A. D. Stewart. 

Brother Stewart was a man of strong convictions and of the highest 
type of Christian character. He exerted a blessed influence over the 



HOLSTON ANNUAL 



lives of the people wherever he lived and they called his name 
"blessed." His position against all manner of sin and for all that 
was good and constructive was uncompromising. He left the world 
much better for his having lived in it. He had a bright, Christian ex- 
perience and in his last days, which were days of feebleness, due to 
advancing years, his testimony was clear and his faith was securely 
anchored. He attended the house of God as long as his physical 
strength would permit and took an active part in the worship. 

He quietly fell asleep at the home of his daughter, Mrs. L. N. 
Spears, on Saturday evening, August 11, 1923. A short service was 
held in this home Sunday afternoon, conducted by the writer and Dr. 
W. S. Neighbors, and on Monday morning his body was taken to Dun- 
lap, Tenn. The service there was held in the Methodist Church, con- 
ducted by Rev. J. C. Spurlin, the pastor, assisted by Rev. W. M. Mor- 
rell and Rev. John R. Stewart of the Tennessee Conference. The 
people of the town and surrounding communities came in such numbers 
to do him honor that the church overflowed and the yard was well 
filled. After the service in the church he was laid to rest in the 
Rankin cemetery beside the body of his wife who died twenty-two 
years before. 

"Servant of God, well done! 
Rest from thy loved employ."

SAMUEL K. BYRD 

S. K. Byrd was born near Spring Valley, in Grayson County, Vir- 
ginia, September 27, 1854; died June 18, 1923, at Old Kingsport, Tenn., 
a few weeks short of 69 years of age. He was educated in the public 
schools of his native county, and finished his schooling at the Inde- 
pendence High School when he was about 20 years of age. Schools at 
that time we»i'e not what they are today. In those days Brother Byrd 
studied the Greek and Latin languages for four years. For seven 
years he taught in the schools of Grayson County, beginning that 
work when he was 21 years of age. Today many can testify that he 
left upon their minds the marks of a diligent, faithful, conscientious 
teacher. 

He was a fine, clean young man, and did not think it was necessary 
to sow a crop of wild oats; therefore he reaped no such harvest. He 
respected God and the Church from early childhood, for he was reared 
in a Christian home and surrounded by the influence of the Church and 
of godly parents.' In a meeting held at Old Providence Camp Ground 
in September, 1874, he was convicted of sin; he was made to see that 
if one would enter into the life everlasting he must be born again. He 
came into the experience of the twice-born one day while climbing a 
mountain on his way to conduct his school. 

He was married twice — first to Miss Sallie Ward, of Grayson 
County, Virginia, in 1877. They lived together in Christian affection, 
happiness and usefulness until 1894, when his beloved wife and son 
were transported to the saints' rest in glory. He was married the 
second time to Mrs. Nora Newland Hart, and to this union seven chil- 
dren were born, all of whom survive him: Clarence N., William Guy, 
of Knoxville; Roy, of Johnson City; Eugene I., of West Virginia; Jo- 
seph Price, Margaret and Naomi Lucile, of Kingsport. The two young- 
est, Joseph Price and Margaret, are at home in Kingsport with their 
sister, Miss Lucile, who, for six years since her mother's death, has 
kept her father's house, and ministered to him and the children with 
loving hands. 

S. K. Byrd felt very heavily the hand of God placed upon him, and 
heard the voice of God calling him into the ministry. He responded 



84 HOLSTON ANNUAL 



to the call, and was admitted into the Holston Conference on trial in 
1884; he was ordained Deacon in 1886, and Elder in 1888, thereby pass- 
ing his course of study in the prescribed length of time while traveling 
large, hard circuits. For thirty-nine years he served his God, his 
Church, his Conference diligently, faithfully, energetically. He had a 
peculiar affection for all the children of God's family, regardless of de- 
nominational preference, and at the same time he was utterly devoted 
to his own Church. He was no bigoted sectarian, but a broad-minded, 
large-hearted, open-handed Christian minister and gentleman. 

He served most acceptably some of the hardest charges in the Con- 
ference, but without a murmur, glad that he had a place in the busy 
enterprise of the Kingdom of God on earth. Thousands of souls were 
brought to a knowledge of Christ under his faithful declaration of the 
unsearchable riches of divine grace. In his thirty-six years of active 
connection with the Conference he served twelve charges. His health 
failed while he was on the Knoxville Circuit and he accepted the super- 
annuate relation, and for the last three years had lived at Old Kings- 
port. Though unable to take work, he did not fold his hands in idle- 
ness nor bemoan his condition. He was deeply interested in the work 
of the Conference, but he had a special interest in the Big Stone Gap 
District, and in the Kingsport Station and Circuit — these charges were 
the occasion for much prayer by Brother Byrd, and the pastors feel 
very keenly the loss of his fatherly counsel and helpfulness. 

He was a man of prayer. The last year he prayed almost con- 
tinually. Many times he was heard praying and shouting in the early 
hours of the morning or the late hours of the night. He prayed for 
the Church, for its special interests, for the Centenary and Christian 
Education movements. He prayed for and with his children, for family 
worship was the rule at his home until the very last night of his stay 
on earth. After the evening meal, on Monday, June 18, 1923, Brother 
Byrd held family prayers for the last time. His son, Joe Price Byrd, 
sang for him the old song, "My Savior First of All," in the chorus of 
which are the lines: 

"I shall know Him, I shall know Him, 
And redeemed by His side I shall stand." 

They had their portion from the Book of Books, and then Brother 
Byrd knelt in prayer, and as he prayed the shadows were fast length- 
ening across his pathway. Going from family worship to his bed- 
room, he lay down upon his bed, and, with a shout, he went into the 
presence of his Maker. He lived a life of devotion to God, and died 
in the act of expressing that devotion. 

He was buried in the cemetery at Salem Church, on the Kingsport 
Circuit, of which he was once pastor. The funeral service was con- 
ducted by Rev. R. W. Watts, assisted by Rev. M. A. Stevenson.

EDWARD WILLIAM MORT 

Edward William Mort, son of John Mort and Barbara Ann Mort, 
was born in Strasburg, Va., April 24, 1853, and died in the hospital 
at Abingdon, Va., Wednesday morning at 2 o'clock, March 14, 1928, 
aged 69 years, 10 months and 20 days. 

The exact date of his conversion cannot be had, but it is certain 
this event took place in his eighteenth year. He immediately united 
with the Methodist Episcopal Church, South, in his native town, and 
remained true to his vows to the end of his life. He was licensed to 
preach by the quarterly conference of Strasburg, Va., in the Baltimore 



HOLSTON ANNUAL 85 



Conference, December 20, 1871, and was admitted on trial in the Hol- 
ston Conference at Bristol, Va., October 4, 1890, Bishop John C. 
Keener presiding. At this same session of the Conference he was 
elected and ordained elder as a local preacher. The minutes show that 
he was elected to local Deacon's orders at the session of the Confer- 
ence held at Chattanooga, Tenn., October, 1883, but not being present, 
was not ordained till October, 1884, at the session of the Conference 
held in Bristol, Bishop Keener again presiding. These dates show that 
he served as a local preacher for nineteen years, and according to his 
own testimony, and of those who knew him in those days, was an 
active, zealous local preacher, preaching much, holding revivals, and 
always ready to assist his pastor in every way possible. There were 
many souls won to the kingdom by him while in the ranks of the local 
ministry. 

He was married to Miss Amanda Virginia Cunningham, of Wash- 
ington County, Virginia, May 10, 1892, with whom he lived in a blessed 
concord of spirits till the day of his death. To this union were bom 
three children — James R., Ruby and Mary — who, with their mother, re- 
main to weep at his grave. He also leaves one brother, J. W. Mort, 
of Bristol, Va., and two sisters, Mrs. Alice V. Fleet, of Blacksburg, 
Va., and Mrs. Laura A. Miller, of Strasburg, Va. Brother Mort lacked 
only six months of having served thirty-three years in the itinerant 
ministry, and in that time served twelve pastoral charges, or rather 
twelve pastorates; for one of these he served twice. They are the fol- 
lowing, in the order named: Tazewell Circuit, Tennessee; Parrotts- 
ville, Tate Spring, Evansville, Kingston, Rich Valley, Blountville, Se- 
vierville. Rich Valley again. Lead Mines, Bluff City and Abingdon 
Circuits. On five of these charges he remained four years each, on 
one other three years. In the middle of the third year on the Abingdon 
Circuit — his last appointment — he heard the voice that called him home. 
In all these years he never failed to answer roll-call at the Annual 
Conference. He was rarely ever absent from the Conference room 
during its sessions. He never coveted or received an honor from his 
Conference, except to serve well wherever he was sent. 

In the spring of 1919 Brother Mort suffered a severe attack of in- 
fluenza, from which he never fully recovered. As his presiding elder 
I found it necessary to caution him in his work for his own safety, 
for with him duty was a bigger word and held in higher regard than 
personal safety. The last appointment he filled was the time of his 
second quarterly conference. We went together to this appointment 
March 3-4, he taking me in his buggy. I never knew him in a more 
cheerful mood. He talked freely of himself and family, for whom he 
was always tenderly solicitous. He opened his heart more completely 
to me than he had ever done before, and told me more of his call to 
preach and his entrance into the active ministry than in any previous 
conversation we had had on that subject, and we had talked much. 
He was, perhaps, over-conscientious in the matter of his entrance upon 
the work of an itinerant Methodist preacher. He wanted to be cer- 
tain, and, Gideon-like, he put the Lord to the test more than once, and 
each time the Lord met the test and gave him proof of his calling. 
Then when he did enter upon his active ministry he burned the bridges 
behind him and never more doubted or questioned his call. 

Knowing, I think, better than he knew his own condition, I asked 
him as we were returning from his last quarterly conference how much 
longer he expected to remain in the active work. He laughingly re- 
plied, "Just as long as they will give me something to do." On our 
way home we were caught in a hard rain, but with umbrella and over- 
coats did not get wet, yet I doubt not but that March rain had some- 
thing to do with his illness. A few days later I called him on the 
'phone, but got no answer. The next day I called at his home, but 



HOLSTON ANNUAL 



found no one there. ' That evening I was told that he was in the hos- 
pital threatened with pneumonia. I went to see him the next day 
and found him cheerful but quite sick. I went to another appointment, 
returning on March 12, and found him very sick and unconscious. On 
the evening of the 13th I saw him for the last time. It was evident 
the end was near. At 2 o'clock on the morning of the 14th the tired 
heart ceased to beat and the spirit returned to God who gave it. 

His funeral was conducted from our church in Abingdon, Va., 
where he had lived for the last two and a half years, March 15, 1923. 
As his presiding elder I had charge of his funeral service, but was as- 
sisted by the following members of our Conference: Revs. J. R. Brown, 
E. F. Kahle, I. P. Martin, J. C. Orr and G. A. Maiden. Drs. Carson 
and Walsh of the Presbyterian Church also took part, and Rev. Dan 
Graham, also of the Presbyterian Church, was one of the pallbearers. 
It is an interesting coincidence that each member of our Conference 
who took part in the funeral exercises had been his presiding elder, 
except Brother Brown, and he was the pastor of his family. These all 
testified to the integrity of his character and the virtues of his life. 
The church was packed by his friends. Some of his former stewards 
from other charges he had served were there, while his ovm board of 
stewards were the honorary pallbearers. We laid his body to rest 
under the pines at Emory, facing the east, where it awaits the dawning 
light of the resurrection morning. 

Rev. Edward William Mort was a good man, a good gospel preacher, 
possessed of a high sense of honor, which he carried into all his busi- 
ness and church affairs. The one word that tells his virtues as a 
preacher and pastor more completely than any other I can think of is 
the word DEPENDABLE. And this good man ceased to work and to 
live at the same time.

LYLE M. NEEL 

Lyle McDonald Neel, son of E. G. and Margaruite Neel, was born 
near Mace's Spring, in Scott County, Virginia. When two years of 
age his parents dedicated him to God in holy baptism, this sacramental 
service being performed by Rev. J. Freeman. In a revival meeting 
held at Washington Chapel, Abingdon Circuit, when 12 years of age 
he was converted and joined the Methodist Episcopal Church, South. 
In 1884 his parents moved to Tennessee and settled near Blooming- 
dale, where Brother Neel attended Kingsley Seminary, an institution 
of the Methodist Episcopal Church, 

At the age of 29 he was happily married to Miss Pearl Godsey, of 
Bloomingdale, and to this union was born three children: Mrs. Lakie 
King, of Cleveland, Ohio; Mrs. Margaruite Graham, of Bloomingdale, 
and Blanche, who remains with her mother. When Rev. S. K. Byrd 
was pastor of the Kingsport Circuit, in a revival held at Hermon 
Schoolhouse, Brother Neel renewed his consecration and the call to 
preach, which had first come to him in childhood. After carefully con- 
sidering this call in all its meaning, he resolved to fully devote himself 
to the work of the ministry. At the District Conference held in Jones- 
ville, Va., May, 1902, he was recommended to the Annual Conference 
for admisison on trial. At the session of the Conference held at 
Wytheville, Va., he was sent to the Etna Circuit, Chattanooga Dis- 
trict, where he served the Church with marked fidelity and devotion. 
He was then moved to the Hixson Circuit, where he remained for two 
years, when he became the pastor of the Sharon Springs Circuit, in 



HOLSTON ANNUAL 87 



the Wytheville District. After a pastorate of two years here he was 
moved to the Bluff City charge, where, during the second year of his 
pastorate, his health failed. 

At the Conference of 1910, after only eight years of service, he was 
placed on the list of superannuates. He moved to his little home near 
Bloomingdale, where for more than twelve years he heroically per- 
formed for his Lord the ministry of suffering. During the four years 
of his pastorate in the Chattanooga District I was intimately associ- 
ated with him. It was always a pleasure to be in his home. His faith 
and devotion and the conscientiousness with which he did his duty were 
always an inspiration to me. He was a good man and full of the Holy 
Ghost. His people everywhere respected and loved him, because they 
knew he dwelt in the secret places of the Almighty. To have seen his 
patience in suffering, his uniform cheerfulness and that faith that 
night and day cried, "I will trust Him though He slay me," was to 
confirm the faith of the believer and to hush the voice of the gain- 
sayer. God wonderfully sustained him in his afflictions, and his beau- 
tiful and perfect resignation was an evidence the Lord was with him. 
On April 23 of this year, at 2:15 in the afternoon, he slipped out of his 
frail tabernacle of flesh and entered his building of God — the house 
not made with hands, eternal in the heavens. 

During these more than twelve years of suffering he was minis- 
tered to constantly, devotedly and lovingly by his good wife. During 
these long years, through all the days and through all the nights, she 
was by his side to cheer and bless him with the ministry of her pres- 
ence and the music of her voice. From our Epworth Church his body 
was laid to rest in Hermon Cemetery, the funeral service being con- 
ducted by Eev. J. H. Wagner, of Gate City, Va.; Rev. M. A. Stevenson, 
of Kingsport, Tenn.; Rev. A. C. Ketron, of the M. E. Church, and his 
pastor. Rev. R. W. Watts, of the Kingsport Circuit. 

It is a blessed hope that we shall meet in that land 

Upon whose blissful shore 

There falls no shadow, rests no stain. 

Where those long parted meet again, 

And those who meet shall part no more. 

S. D. LONG. 



JACOB L. GRIFFITTS 

Jacob LaFayette Griff itts, son of John Wesley and Mary Elizabeth 
Griffitts, was born at Unitia, Loudon County, Tennessee, November 14, 
1869, and died in Bethseda Hospital, Cincinnati, Ohio, April 27, 1923, 
aged 53 years 5 months and 13 days. He was married to Pemielia 
Cable, September 3, 1902. To this union were born two daughters — 
Alma Lucile and Mary Lilian — who with his wife survive him. 

He was converted and joined the Methodist Episcopal Church, 
South, in early life, though the exact date is not known. He was 
licensed to exhort March 29, 1897, Rev. J. A. Lyons, presiding elder. 
Two months later. May 28, 1897, he was granted a license to preach by 
the Cleveland District Conference held at Madisonville, Tenn., J. A. 
Lyons, presiding elder and J. C. Orr, secretary. He received his educa- 
tion in the public schools and at the Moody Bible School, and spent 
some time as an evangelist singer before entering upon the work of a 
Methodist itinerant preacher. He was ordained a local Deacon by 
Bishop Hoss at Knoxville, Tenn., June 21, 1903. 

In October, 1902, I was appointed presiding elder of the Cleveland 



88 HOLSTON ANNUAL 



District, and the Ducktown mission being left "to be supplied," I se- 
cured Brother Griffitts to take charge of it. In 1903 he was recom- 
mended for admission on trial in the traveling connection by the 
Cleveland District Conference, which met in Riceville, May, 1903, and 
was admitted at Morristown, Tenn., October 10, 1903, Bishop Hoss 
presiding. 

From the Conference at Morristown, 1903 he was sent to the Moun- 
tain City Circuit where he remained two years. He was next appointed 
to the Cripple Creek Circuit, but owing to sickness in his family did 
not go to that charge, but spent the year in Lenoir City. In 1906-1909 
he served the Decatur Circuit. From 1909 to 1912 he was in charge of 
the Dunlap Circuit. In 1912 he was transferred to the Florida Con- 
ference, where he spent eight years, serving Wauchula, Cedar Keys, and 
Key West charges. He returned to Holston in 1919, though his trans- 
fer was not announced till the Conference held in Princeton in 1920. 

While pastor at Key West he contracted malaria and came back 
to East Tennessee in the spring of 1919 to rest and recuperate, but 
when the presiding elder offered him the Charleston Circuit, an ap- 
pointment grading much lower than the one he had left in Florida, he 
decided to accept it and return to Holston. The next year, 1920, he 
was sent by Bishop Denny to the Rossville station, where he stayed 
one year, and was then sent to the Glade Spring-Meadow View Cir- 
cuit, where in the middle of the second year on that charge he died. 

His funeral was conducted by the writer from the Glade Spring 
Church April 29, 1923, assisted by Brothers J. A. Lyons, J. C. Orr, 
E. F. Kahle, and the pastors of the Presbyterian and Baptist churches 
of Glade Spring. His body was laid to rest at Emory, Va., where we 
have laid the bodies of four of our preachers this year. 

Brother Griffitts was a good man, a faithful husband, an indulgent 
father and a conscientious pastor. He had the evangelistic spirit that 
rejoiced in the salvation of sinners, the instincts of a true pastor that 
glows with desire for the growth of his church, and a true philan- 
thropy which gave him large sympathy for the sufferings of mankind. 
He loved his own, and literally gave his life for the welfare of his 
home. 

His troubles he kept to himself. He had few confidents. Over a 
sorrowful heart he carried a cheerful face. He could bear the burdens 
of others and his own too. If we all knew his life as some of us do, we 
would enroll his name among the martyrs. 

He left us no last words, but he left what is far better, the unsul- 
lied life of some forty years of clean, faithful Christian living. There 
is not a stain on his Christian living and his character and reputation 
are unimpeached. He was my friend, and I rejoce to lay this wreath 
upon his grave. His body sleeps upon the hill at Emory, Va., among 
the heroes of our faith, and among them all there is no more heroic 
name than his. 

"Rejoice for a brother deceased. 
Our loss is his infinite gain; 
A soul out of prison released. 

And freed from his bodily chain." 

T. C. SCHULER. 



MRS. S. S. CATRON 

We are called upon to record the birth, life and death of an es- 
timable woman, worthy of our remembrance and emulation. Mrs. 
Cynthia Brown Catron, wife of Rev. S. S. Catron, long time an honored 
member of Holston Conference, was born and reared in Black Lick, 



HOLSTON ANNUAL 89 



Wythe County, Virginia. She came of a well-known family, her grand- 
father having been a noted preacher of the Lutheran Church. She 
married Mr. S. S. Catron December 28, 1872, three years before he 
began to preach, and while he was in school preparing for his great 
work as a minister. Hers was an exhibition of self-denial and patience 
to help her husband, who was sacrificing inducements to a secular life, 
that he might be prepared for a nobler work for the Master. During 
this period their first child was born. Afterward three boys and two 
girls came, who were to draw on their labor and love. The husband 
planned and executed for their material welfare, the wife shed upon 
them the gentle and formative influence of a Christian mother, and 
before she left them was rewarded by seeing them all in the church and 
living honorable and useful lives. 

Her death was not sudden or violent, but quiet and peaceful as her 
life had been. She passed away at her daughter's, Mrs. Alexander's. 
Dr. S. D. Long, our presiding elder, and Dr. W. S. Neighbors and a 
large number of our city preachers held an appropriate service in the 
Highland Park Church and bore the dear good woman to her final 
resting place in beautiful Forest Hills Cemetery. 

Hers was a gentle and beautiful nature and we all carry in our 
hearts sweet memories of her, strengthened and made sweeter by the 
words of him who lived nearest to her for the longest time — "Never 
during her entire life had she a harsh word for any human being." 

W. C. CARDEN." 



' MRS. W, W. HICKS 

Mrs. Mary Bane Hicks, wife of Rev. W.. W. Hicks, died at the home 
of her daughter, Mrs. Luther Neal, in Norfolk, Va., November 5, 1922, 
and was buried in Walnut Grove Cemetery, Bluefield, W. Va., beside 
her husband, who had preceded her to the grave only a few weeks. 
She was the daughter of William and Nancy Bane and was bom Octo- 
ber 10, 1850, on Bluestone, in Tazewell County, Virginia. She came 
from a Christian home and a family prominent, socially and religiously, 
in that section of the state. Trained and taught by pious parents and 
reared under the influence of a family altar, she was well prepared for 
a preacher's wife. She was one of those rare persons of whom we 
sometimes speak as being naturally good. Always religiously in- 
clined, yet she was not definitely converted, or satisfied with her re- 
ligious experience, until after her marriage, when she made a profes- 
sion of religion and united with the Methodist Episcopal Church, South. 

October 3, 1872, she united in marriage with William Ward Hicks, 
Rev. Tyler Frazier performing the ceremony. At that time Brother 
Hicks was studying for the legal profession, but about two years later 
he was converted in a meeting at the old Bluestone Camp Ground and 
immediately yielded to the call to preach. Mrs. Hicks supported her 
husband heartily in this purpose and unreservedly gave herself to the 
work of the ministry and the itinerant life. The Methodist ministry 
in the Holston country was largely a pioneer work in those days. They 
did not have the comfortable parsonages and competent salaries to 
which we are accustomed now; some communities had no welcome for 
a preacher of the Methodist faith then. For a young woman, cultured 
and refined, as was Mrs. Hicks, to leave a home of comfort and plenty 
and cast her lot with a poor Methodist preacher called for heroism of 
the highest sort and a consecration that was complete. She gave her 
life as fully as did her preacher husband to the Christian ministry. 



90 HOLSTON ANNUAL 



For forty years she went with him and stood by him in all the varied 
experiences of a traveling preacher's life, and through the last hard 
years of superannuation she was his stay and cornfort. Always she 
was the devoted wife and unfailing helpmate. With an unwavering 
fidelity and loyalty she supported her husband in his troubles, sus- 
tained him in trials^, and helped him in every time of need. For fifty 
years she was a good angel to the man she loved and with whose life 
she had linked her own in girlhood. She was distinctly a home-lover 
and a housekeeper; she made the home a retreat and refuge for the 
weary worker — an oasis in a desert of drudgery, a place of comfort, 
good cheer and pure joy — to which the absent ones always turned with 
longing. She left her impress upon the children to a remarkable de- 
gree and they held her in the highest veneration. With devotion and 
wisdom she brought them up in the wav they should go and today they 
are all in the church, living the life of faith. The following children 
survive: Spiller Hicks, W. B. Hicks, Mrs. Maud Dick and Mrs. Mar- 
garet Neal, of Bluefield, and Mrs. May Barret, of Norfolk, Va. 

Mrs. Hick's religious experience was positive and rich; her faith 
kept her through all the hard experiences of life and walked with her 
through the valley of the shadow of death. Frail in body, she had a 
spirit which was indomitable. In times of excitement she was calm, 
in seasons of depression she was hopeful, and when sorrow came she 
was the comforter for all. Serene, well poised, capable, of her it may 
be said, "a saint has lived among us and passed on." 

T. S. HAMILTON. 



MRS. JOSEPHUS HENBY 

Fannie Cornelia, daughter of John E. and Mollie Lindsay, was born 
at Beville, Choctaw County, Alabama, October 10, 1883. Mrs. Henby's 
health had been failing for a year or more before her departure, but 
not in a way that was thought serious, and after a brief illness, follow- 
ing a nervous strain of some weeks, she came to the end of her life in 
the Bluefield Sanitarium, March 10, 1923. 

She was converted to Christ when only a girl and united with the 
Methodist Episcopal Church, South, in Beville, Alabama, in which 
church she lived a devoted, consistent, and active church life until her 
departure. She was a most loyal member of her church, an untiring 
and efficient worker, being interested in all departments of the church 
v/ork. 

She was educated at Meridian Female College, Meridian, Missis- 
sippi, which being added to her personal culture and home environment, 
made her a woman of more than ordinarv intellectual attainment and 
usefulness. 

She was united in marriage to Eev. Josephus Henby, July 16, 1914, 
to which union one son was born, thus leaving a devoted husband and 
a loving son, with a host of relatives and friends, to mourn her prema- 
ture departure. The immediate cause of her death was spinal menin- 
gitis, and after intense suffering of twelve days she was released from 
the flesh that she might be permitted to enter into the fullness of life 
eternal. Mrs. Henby was buried March 13, 1923, beneath the ever- 
green trees, in the family burying-ground, amid the scenes of her 
childhood, Choctaw County, Alabama. The funeral services were con- 
ducted by her family pastor. Rev. J. R. Jones, of the Alabama Con- 
ference.

MRS. J. N. HOBBS 



Maggie C. Gaulcling was bom November 18, 1854, in Chattanooga, 
and died at her home in Morristown, November 28, 1922, aged 
sixty-eight years and ten days. She was a daughter of Jesse and 
Elizabeth Gaulding. Her girlhood was spent in Morristown, where she 
attended the old Academy, of which Rev. T. P. Summers was principal. 
July 19, 1876, she was married to Rev. John N. Hobbs, who preceded 
her to the better land. Six children were the fniit of this union, one 
of whom died in infancy. The surviving children are: Mrs. Lucian 
Smith, Mrs. George Inman, Mrs. Arthur Range, Miss Hattie Hobbs, of 
Morristown, and Marvin Hobbs, of Knoxville; also one brother and 
one sister. In her early girlhood Maggie Gaulding professed saving 
faith in Christ and at once affiliated with the Liberty Hill Church, of 
which she remained a faithful and consistent member until called to 
her great reward. 

Sister Hobbs was a modest, retiring woman. For the publicity and 
notoriety which some people appear to ardently desire, she had neither 
taste nor talent. There was nothing spectacular about her. Hers was 
of a shrinking nature, and while she was by no means lacking in moral 
courage, she had no desire to attract public attention. On the other 
hand, she loved the quietude of her own home and gloried in the confi- 
dence and affection of her husband and children. She believed that the 
home was woman's kingdom; with a frail body, but buoyant spirit, she 
did all that she could to make a pleasant home for those whom she 
loved with a devotion that was pure, steadfast, and ardent. She lived 
her religion. All who were so fortunate as to touch elbows with her 
were impressed with the idea that she had been with God. A devoted 
wife, a fond mother, a kind, charitable neighbor, such was Mrs. J. N. 
Hobbs. She lived helpfully, she died regretted. We shall miss her, 
but I am sure she is lost only for a while.

MRS. W. R. SNIDER 

Jennie Tipton Snider was bom at Townsend, Tenn., March 21, 1849; 
fell on sleep at the home of her daughter, Mrs. Lillie Musgrove, in 
Chattanooga, November 15, 1922. She was married to Rev. W. R. 
Snider, December 24, 1868. Was the mother of eleven children — three 
having preceded her — four sons and four daughters, with the husband, 
remaining this side the river. 

Mrs. Snider professed faith in Christ in 1873, joined the Methodist 
Episcopal Church, South, and remained in its membership till she was 
permitted to join the Church triumphant. 

A glimpse at her Bible will give an insight to the trend of her mind. 
We found many verses marked. Psalm 27:4 — "One thing have I de- 
sired of the Lord; that will I seek after; that I may dwell in the house 
of the Lord all the days of my life, to behold the beauty of the Lord 
and to inquire in His temple." Again, Psalm 33:12 — "Blessed is the 
nation whose God is the Lord, and the people whom He hath chosen^ 
for His o^vn inheritance." Verse 18 — "Behold, the eye of the Lord is 
upon them that fear Him, upon them that hope in His mercy." Psalm 
34:7— "The angel of the Lord encampeth round about them that fear 
Him and delivereth them." John 14:1— "Let not your heart be trou- 
bled; ye believe in God; believe also in me. In my Father's house are 
many mansions; if it were not so I would have told you. I go to pre- 
pare a place for you." She believed the Bible to be the Word of God, 
and was often found with the open book. 

Mrs. Snider was modest and unassuming, yet firm. She was de- 
voted to her family, saw the importance of the care of the home and 



92 HOLSTON ANNUAL 



training the little ones, so she stayed by the stuff, always urging her 
husband to go to his appointments; even on the last Sunday insisted 
that he go, though she was just on the margin of the river. She was 
a good wife, a fond mother. Now she understands the why of all her 
privations, toil and suffering. She died in peace. 

Her pastor, Rev. W. M. Morrel, assisted by the writer and others, 
conducted a short but impressive service in the home. The following 
day the above pastors conducted the final service in our church at 
Lenoir City. Many loved ones and some members of Brother Snider's 
church were present. The floral offerings were beautiful. 

Servant of God, well done; we shall see you again!
