Progress and Blessing.
With thankful hearts we record another
year of progress and blessing in the Bible
Training School. The reports presented
in the present issue of the Rei^oroek
show that the eleventh session has been
one of growth and i)rosperitj-. The total
enrolment of students has been the
largest in our history, the great purpose
of the School has been steadilj' and de-
tinitelj- pursued, and a goodly number of
consecrated young men and women have
gone forth to labor for Christ at home
and abroad. To Him who has guided
and ble.ssed our institution in the past,
we again coinmond it for thoda.\ s to come.
Eleventh Annual Meeting.
The Eleventli Session of the Toionto
Bible Training School closed on Fiiday,
April '28th, 1905. In the afternoon of
that da}' the Annual Meeting of the
united Board of Incorporation and
General Council was held, when the re-
ports for the j'ear were presented, and
the work of the School received careful
consideration. There was a good attend-
ance of members, who manifested much
interest in the growth and prosperity of
tlie institution. At the close of the meet-
ing, on the kind invitation of the Presi-
dent, the members present, with two
other friends practically interested in
the work of the School, had tea together
in the library.
At the evening meeting the graduating
exercises brought together one of the
largest audiences ever gathered in the
Assembly Hall. Devotional services
were conducted by Dr. Hooper and Rev.
T. B. H^'de, both of this city. President
Harris gave a brief outline of the work
of the session, referring particularly to
the large numbers who are again going
forth to the home and foreign fields and
to the increased attendance of j^oung
men and young women in the Day
Classes. Appropriate addresses were
given by four of the graduating students.
Mr. E. Higgins spoke on " Christ Knock-
ing," at the door of the Christian and of
the lukewarm church. Miss Lila Russell
enlarged on a " Passion for Souls" as an
essential pre-requisite for Christian ser-
vice, and Mr. R. A. Walmsley urged the
vital importance of " Preaching the
Word." An appropriate valedictory ad-
dress was also delivered by Rev. George
Orman. Diplomas were then presented
to the following thirteen students who
have completed the course of study pre-
scribed for the Day Classes, and have
passed satisfactory examinations thereon:
Messrs. Edward C. Austin, Herbert
Stanley Bennett, Elijah Higgins, Ken-
neth F. McKenzie Thomas G. Murphy,
Rev. George Orman, Horace Greeley
Smith, Francis Graliam Stotesbury,
Robert Alfred Walmsley ; also Misses
Lila Russell, Mary Stewart, Louisa Maud
Warren and Jennie Beatrice Wilkins.
Certificates were also given to the follow-
ing students who have satisfactorily
completed the course of study in the J
Evening Classes: Miss Mary Ortency ^
Burleigh; Messrs. Walter William Don-
noly, William Fred Moule and Robert
Simpson. A special Testimonial was also
given to Mr. John A. Stevens for new
subjects in post-graduate work. The
Principal, Dr. Stewart, thereupon ad-
dressed the graduates in a few parting
words, in which he charged them in
their future ministry, whethei' at home
or abroad, to remember and seek to follow
the Divine order of all efficient Christian
service: "Prayer, Power, Preaching."
The closing address of this excellent meet-
ing was given by Mr. W. R. Newell, of
Chicago, who spoke with convincing
power on the "Inspiration of the Scrip-
Report of the Prineipal
Presented to the Board of iNCORPor-
ATioN, AND General Council,
April 28, 1905.
By the good hand of our God upon us
the eleventh session of the Toronto Bible
Training School has come to a close.
The year has again been one of advance-
ment and blessing in the chief depart-
ments of the work. Indeed the histox-y
of the Institution from its beginning un-
til now has proved it to be a tree of the
Lord's own planting. According to His
word of sure promise. He has kept it and
watered it, so that it has grown to goodly
proportions, and brought forth fruit to
During the session there has again been
an increase in the enrolment of the Stud-
ents over previous years. In the Day
Classes the number has been sixty-eight,
and in the Evening Classes two hundred
and fifty-four. In the Day Classes there
have been 37 young men, of whom 5 were
sent by the Provincial Committee of the
Young Men's Cliristain Association, and
81 young women; and in the Evening
classes the enrolment has been 81 young
men and 17;5 young women. In attend-
ance on some of the regular courses of

study tliere have also be«n former grad-
ates ami occasional students and visitors.
During parts of the session tliere was
more sickness among the students than
usual, and this somewhat interfered with
regularity in attendance. In other res-
pects, however, the work of the classes
has gone forward with much encourage-
ment and success, and a spirit of earnest
devotion to study has been very gener-
THE UAV CLASSES.
The regular lecturers in the Day Classes
have again been Dr. Harris, Mr. Mc-
Nicol, and myself. Dr. Harris has given
two courses of expository lectures each
week, one on the book of Deuteronomy,
and the other on the First and Second
Epistles to the Thessalonians. My own
subjects have been iis follows : — Bible
Doctrines, with the "Word of God as our
only text book ; the Pastoral Ep'stles ; the
ministry of the Apostle Paul ; and Bible
Readings. I have also had charge
of the essaj^s of the students and the
exercises in public speaking. Mr. Mc-
Nicol's subjects have been: — Outline
Studies of the Books of the Old Testa-
ment ; Studies in the Gospels ; Inspira-
tion of the Scriptures ; and Lands of the
Bible. He has also conducted the early
morning classes in English Grammar
and Comjiosition, and in New Testament
Greek. In his report of the session's
work Mr. McNicol says : —
"In all my classes without exception
the students did faithful work and made
very satisfactory progress. Their eager
desire to know the Word of God, and
whatever is connected with it, makes
teaching a delight."
The introductory lecture of the session
was delivered by our friend. Rev. H. W.
Frost of Philadelphia, who gave a helpful
ami appropriate address on the " Inspira-
tion of the Scriptures." Verj' valuable
courses of instruction were also given by
Rev. T, C. Des Barres, who presented to
the students a most able and impressive
exposition of the Epistle to the Hebrews ;
by Rev. Dr. Mackaj-, who gave a series
of interesting and instructive addresses
on " Mission Work in India ;" and by
Rev. R. .1. Trolcaven, of Parkdale Meth-
odist Church, who discussed " Methods of
Evangelistic Work," with great fervency
and effect. Our best thanks are due to
these friends for their valued services so
freely and cheerfully given to the School.
From time to time the School has re-
ceived visits from other eminent servants
of Christ. Prominent among these was
Dr. H. Grattan Guinness, the founder
of Harley College, an institution similar
to our own. His lectures in the School
were such as could only be given by one
.so noted as a Bible Student, ami so dis-
tinguished for the .service he has long
rendered in preparing laborers for the
regions beyond. Two instructive lec-
tures have been given to the Mission
Study Class by Rev. J. G. Brown, re-
turned missionary from India ; while
Mrs. Mills from China, and Mrs. McGill.
Liberia, have also given helpful addresses
to the students. The visits and services
of all these friends were much apprecia-
THE EVENING CLA.SSES.
These Classes have been held on four
evenings of each week. On Tuesday and
Thursday the regular course of study
has been pursued. Dr. Harris has given
lectures on the same subjects as in the
Day Clas.ses ; Mr. McNicol has given in-
struction in the Teachings of our Lord,
and I have conducted the studies in Bible
Doctrines. Special Classes have also
l>een held on Monday and Friday even-
ings, on the former of which Mr. Mc-
Nicol has given instruction in Homiletics
10 the young men of the Day Classes to-
gether with some others ; and on the lat-
ter to a well-attended class of Sunday
.School teachers, giving an exposition of
the lesson. The work on both these
evenings has been maintained with much
During the session medical classes were
again conducted by three of the doctors
who have given us faithful and efticient
.service in the past. Dr. Bowie gave
lectures on the Practice of Medicine,
" denling specially witli the important
subjects of Emerpoiicies.'" During the
first half of the session Dr. Hooper had a
class of lady students to wliom he gave
instruction on '"Obstetrics" and the
nursiuR of women ; while Dr. Howitt
commenced in January his course on
" Tropical Diseases." A new member of
the medical staff is Dr. Allan Shore, who
very kindly took the place of Dr. Porter,
absent from the city for the winter, and
lectured on the foundation Studies of
Anatomy and Pliysiolofiy. These med-
ical gentlemen have rendered excellent
service especially to the students prepar-
ing for the foreign field, and they des-
erve the best thanks of the Board and all
the friends of the School for their gener-
ous and valuable help.
VOCAL MUSIC CLASS.
The efficient services of Mr. A.T. Cring-
an were again secured to conduct a class
once a week during the session in the
theory and practice of singing. The class
was a real benefit to those wlio atten-
ded it, and tlie instruction received can-
not fail to be of much help to many of
the students in leading the service of song
in their future ministry. It should be
added that the cost of conducting this
class has again been kindly provided for
by our President. Dr. Harris.
Written examinations have again been
held twice during the session in all the
courses of Bible study pursued by the
Day and Evening Classes. Tiie mini-
mum standard for each paper is fifty per
cent., but more than half the students ob-
tained seventy-five per cent.and upwards,
while in the Day Classes fully one-third
obtained ninety per cent, or over on sev-
eral of the subjects. Very few failed to
reach the required standard, so that the
examinations as a whole have been (juite
satisfactory. The only regret is that a
larger number of the Evening Class stu-
dents do not submit to this test. One set of
papers from the recent examination was
read by our friend, Rev. Dr. Parsons,
who reports about them as follows :
" I have had the privilege of examin-
ing the papers of the students of the first
year in their course of study in the Gos-
pels, and I am greatly impressed with the
evidence shown of their proficiency. The
knowledge of the Scriptures studied is
definite in clearness of expression, and
tlie system pursued by their Instructor is
most effective in giving an intelligent
understanding and personal experience
of the truths of the Text."
A set of papers written recently by the
students of the second year was exam-
ined by Rev. Dr. Welton, another of our
examiners, who gives the following es-
timate regarding them :
" I have examined carefully the paper ^-:
which were submitted to me, and am
happy to say that they give ample evi-
dence of the excellent work that is being
done by the School, and by each indivi-
dual student. Nearly all sliow a remark-
ably clear comprehension of the subjects
upon which they have written."
The students have done a very large
amount of evangelistic and city mission
work in the city and neighborhood. At
beginning of the session they formed
themselves into an evangelistic band,
which conducted services in churches
and mission halls nearly every Lord's
day. Most of these were largely attend-
ed, and not a few persons profe-ssed to
receive spiritual benefit from the meet-
ings. Some places outside the city have
also been supplied with preaching by our
young men. The j''oung women have
also been active and useful in several
of the missions in the city, in household
visitation, in Sunday School teaching,
and Young People's services. In these
different ways much direct good has been
accomplished, while the students them-
selves have received a valuable training
for future service.
DEVOTIONAL AND MISSIONARY SPIRIT.
The culture of the spiritual life of the
students has been one of the chief aims
of the School since its organization.
Every Tuesday forenoon a devotional
service has been held with much interest
and profit. Many of our students in dif-
ferent parts of the world unite with us
in praj^er on that day for special blessing
on the work of the School, and on all
who have gone forth from its classes to
hibor for the Lord. An early Thursday
inorninji missionary prayei-incetiuK luis
also been uuiintained with a good atten-
ilence, especiallj' of Student Volunteers.
Of these there have been fully one-fourth
in the Day Classes this session, wholiave
expressed a detinite desire for serviou in
the foreign field, should God in His pro-
vidence open up the way. They have
also formed a class for missionary study,
which has been conducted with much
interest, and has proved to be very help-
ful. The maintenance of this stiong
missionary and devotional spirit in the
School is a reason for much thankfulness.
LAHOREKS SEXT FORTH.
Since last annual meeting, in addition
to our three East Indian students, who
returned last May to missionary- service
in India, five others have left Canada for
work in foreign fields. These are Miss
Nay lor and Miss Brooking, who went to
China; Miss Barbara Mould, who has
become a worker in the Industrial Evan-
gelical Mission of Northei'n India ; and
Mr. and Mrs. Edward Boyne, who have
gone to the district of Allahalead in
North-Western India. In addition to
these about twenty of our young men
have lately gone, or are just going, to
destitute fields in various parts of tlie
Dominion under the different Home
During the year the School has lost by
death some of its best friends. The first
of these was Mrs. John Harris of Brant-
ford, a noble Christian woman, who aided
many good causes, and was a liberal
supporter of the School from its begin-
ning. Another was Mr. R. S. Schell,
also of Brantford, a member of our Gen-
eral Council, and much interested in
Bible study. Two of our most promising
students ahso rest from their labors. One
of them was Mr. J. K. McCormick, of
Bervie, Ont., a fine Bible scholar and
consecrated Christian worker, who died
just as he was ready to go out to India.
The other was Mr. Edwin Ratcliffe, of
East Toronto, a noble young man, who
was suddenly called away from earth, in
the midst of earnest preparation for
missionary work in China. Our prayer
is, that God may graciously comfort the
mourners, and raise up others like-minded
to take the places of those who have
It would not be right to close this
report without referring to the brotherly
love which has prevailed in every depart-
ment of the work. This is noteworthy,
seeing tliat the School has always been
strictly inter-denominational in its lec-
turers and also in its student body.
In the harmonious meetings of the Board
of Incorporation, in the unity of spirit
and purpose which has inspired the
officer's and instructors, and in the real
Christian fellowship which has been
maintained among the stiidents, there
has been continuous and abundant cause
for gratitude. Consecrateil young men
and women from ten different evangeli<al
denominations have come to our classes,
and their devotion to study and zeal in
Christian service have been in every way
commendable. Surely there can be no
grander work than that of training these
young minds in the knowledge of God's
Word and the abilit}- to use it in Christ's
cau.«e ; so that in the power of the Snirit
they may go forth from the School, as
scores have already done, to fields of
labor at home and abroad and seek to
win souls for the Saviour.
In my last annual report I referred to
the possibilitj' tiiat I might soon be laid
aside from the service of the School.
During the session my health, by the
blessing of God, has continued to be
fairly good. But I have felt at times as
if the burdens and responsibilities of my
position were becoming too much for me ;
and I think it might be best, both for the
School and myself, if, during the coming
session I could be relieved of some, or if
thought desirable, of all my duties. May
the Board and mj'.self be divinely directed
in this important matter. .Surely we
may feel confident that He who has so
gracious!}' guided and blessed the Toronto
Bible Training School in the past will
still give the wisdom that is profitable to
direct, and provide both the man and the
means for all the service He requires at
our hands. So to Him we again com-
mend our beloved institution, with the
[irayer that its fruits may go on ripening
and gathering until the great harvest

A minimum of fifty per cent, is required to pass the examinations. It h«s been
decided that, should any of the Eveniii<? Class students desire to take a fuller course
of study in tlie Daj' Classes, the examinations they have already passed will count
so much towards obtaining the regular Diploma of the School. In general it may
be stated that three sessions in the Evening Classes will be regarded as equivalent
to one whole session in the Day Classes.

"I desire to thank Dr. Harris, Mr.
McNicol, and yourself for the great help
I have received within the walls of the
Bible Training School, whose memory
I shall always hold dear. My prayer is,
that my life inay be more fully conformed
to the precious truth I have been taught
with you, and that I may now be enabled
to teach and help others."
Another student, in sending a recom-
mendation with one of his scholars for
admission to the School, sajs :
" I do trust that his staj' will be as
pleasant and profitable as mine was, and
that the studies will be for the deepening
of his spiritual life. My earnest prayer
for all in connection with stich a glorious
institution, is that the blessing of God
may continually rest upon it, an I that
all who go out to engage in service for
Christ, ma}- be equipped for the great
work of winning souls and strengilienini:
