A JEIWi WELBIORN.
The presiding elder, Rev. W. M.
Duncan, presided over the con
ference, the bishop for some rea
son rot being able to be present.
There was a good attendance on
the part of the ministers and a
fairly good representation piers
ent of the laymen.
The reports of the preachers
showed the entire district to be
in excellent condition, both spir
itually and financially, and that
many additions to the church
have b'en made during the past
year. It is a matter worthy of a
note that approximately *3,500
has been added to the amount
paid to preachers during 1907 as
salaries, and there is no Ireason
now to doubt but that this
amount will be paid before the
end of the conference year.
Another gratifying feature .
which developed from the re
ports ioming from the various C
charges was that practically all E
conference claims and assesc- -
ments have already been paid 'n
full. It seems that it has beer, I
during this year, at least, tI e ,
aim of the preachers to com-. :
mence early in securing they e
claims, and they have succeeded
remarkably well in that there
were very few who failed to re
port all these conference claims
as paid in full.
A very interesting feature of
this conference was the interest
taken in it and church work
generally by the laymen. On
Friday afternoon the presiding
elder turned the conference over
to the laymen. -An interesting
address was delivered by Hon.
W. L. Gray, of Laurens; after
his address the laymen generally
discussed the various phases of
the Laymen's Missionary Move
ment. It seemed apparent that
from the interest there mani
fested in behalf of this general
movement on the part of the
laymen of the church, sonme con
certed action will be taken pur
suant to the methods provided
therefor In the conference of
laymen lately. held in Chatta
nooga, and that material results
ought to follow speedily.
The people of Clinton were
