The Session Prolonged by the Wright Case

[Special Telegram to the Globe. I
FRIDAY AFTERNOON, Sept. 20.The business
of a Methodist conference is carried on under
strict parliamentary rules, and, unless some
thing of an unusual nature intervenes, the
business can be transacted on the four days
(Wednisday, Thursday, Friday and Saturday)
set apart for the business before the Sabbath.
The appointments are usually read on Monday
morning. This session, however, will be some
what prolonged. Among the fresh arrivals,
pertaining to conference, to-day are Judge
Brill A. H. Rose and Pascal Smith, in the in
terest of Hamline university Mrs. J. Ellen
Foster, of Clinton, Iowa, in the interest of
temperance, and Prof. D. C. John, of Mankato
Normal school. At 3 p. M. the anniversary of
the Woman's Foreign Missionary society was
held. The house was comfortably well filled,
and the meeting was called to order by Mrs.
H. J. Crist, who opened the service by giving
out the hymn 988.
"Thou whose almighty word, etc."
Mrs. D. Cobb read a portion of scripture and
led in prayer, when the congregation sang:
''When shall the voice of singing, etc."
Mrs. W. H. Soule said there had always rest
ed upon her an inspiration for the missionary
work. She called to mind from her childhood
the stories of the missionaries about the child
ren in a heathen land, and wondered when she
would b able to do and hay t-omething for
them. This work is a work of faith, and one
difficulty is. to interest the sisters of the
church in behalf of the women of the heathen
country. I sometimes fear we have heard so
nch of tho wants of a foreign land that it
makes us indifferent. I hope this is not so,
but we hear so much and see so little
i* is liable to make us in
different on this great subject.
Mrs. W. C. Rice paid it took an experienced
speaker to make a speech in ten minutes, the
time allotted but she took for her theme the
sacrifices made by the men and women of the
church who had given life, love and substan -e
to the cause of missions. We are called upon
individually to take a part in this work. We
are called upon for time and money. Can we
do it? We ask this question, and in answering
it pardon me if I refer to myself. We ought
to lead much, and in reading the Friend we
can find there matters in reference to the mis
sions and the work that will be of the greatest
importance to us. Let us devote one-half day
in visiting the poor and the sick. As to money,
the only way to have it is to save it. If the
ministers' wives can save it surely the layman's
wife can. It's a consolation for the minister's
wife to have a crisp five-dollar bill in her pos
session. We save our money in small amounts,
but we never forget the mite cheRt. The lady
told of one sister who gave what she usually
spent for ribbons to the cause of mis
sions. She saved a dollar and made
the sacrifice. In the course of time, this
same sister received a package containing just
such things as this dollar had deprived her of.
Sister Rice concladed that the Lord did not in
tend to let minister's wives go without ribbons,
especially when they gave their pin money to
the cau--e of missions.
Mrs. W. W. Rork said her heart was full of
the mission work, and that although she might
be able to do but little for this cause, she knew
there was One who would label it "rtc7i."
Can we afford to stand aloof from this great
work of the church? Have we so environed
ourselves that we cannot do our part in this
branch of the Lord's work? If we can do but
little let UB do that heartily. Do not wait to
do the work of the giant, or give in amounts as
becometh a millionair, but give and do as God
has blesssd us. In giving we will have to give
and will reap our just reward. The heathen
world calls to us, and if we are poor, we cannot
afford to withhold.
Rev. I. N. Howser, of Milwaukee, who has
beeu a missionary, gave some startling figures
in regard to the magnitude of the numbers of
people in heathen darkness 120,000,000 of wo
men in India alone. In Madras, in 1850, the
women were used as horses, transporting water,
arth and sand, for a pa\ ment of three cents a
day, while the sun was 140 deg. in the shade.
Women were sold at $10 apiece. Whole vil
lages were supported by selling women at from
$3 to $8 each. The better class were kept ex
cluded. I only saw three or four in the eight
years I spent in India. The men and women
of lndir are intelligent because they are heath
en they are not fools, but caste intervenes.
These are the people we wish to educate to
Christianity. What does Christianity do? It
teaches us to honor our mothers, our wives and
our daughters. We offer them our arms as we
go down the street and feel honored. In India
every time we go down the street
with our wives on our arms we
preach a sermon. The speaker went over
a great deal of the missionary field, giving per
sonal experiences that were most interesting.
He told of the great famine, und how hundreds
and thousands came to h'm for help. How the
mothers brought their babes in a starved con
dition, and he bought them for 50 cents apiece
to the number of hundreds. How he sent the
little ones to the hospital, where they were
reared as Christians, and are now occupying
po-iitions as doctressei aud ministers, educat
mg an 1 elevating their own people
Dr. Arthur Edwards spoke happily on the
subject for some time, when the congregation
"I gave my life for thee," etc
Mrs. Nind, the secretary, read her report,
which was not up to what it was last year.
This, however, is owing to the failure of the
crops. Mrs. Nind read a letter
received fromliveBishopi Wyle,and exhorting
great efforts for China and
She said: "We i a ricl homes sit down
to well laden tables and think we are making
great sacrifices. We are doing nothing as yet.
While we sit here to-day there is a meeting in
Chicago, where eight noble young women who
are giving up home and friends for China and
Japan, are taking a part. Mothers are there
who are giving up their daughters to the work
of the missionary cause in China. They are
not doing this without making a sacrifice such
as we are not called upon to make to-day."
The lady read interesting letters from differ
ent parts of the mission field, portraying the
terrible famine that has afflicted that poor
land. The call is, Help! Help! Money! Money!
Shall we sit down in our plenty and allow
these faithful workers to become discouraged
in their great work, or shall we deny ourselves
a little iu dress and home and o"dinary comforts
to help swell the fund for missions? Let Min
nesota come up to the work. We cannot afford
to relinquish one foot of our territory. The
executive committee of the parent society at
Bo-iton took upon it a great obligation in as
suming $82,000, and although in Minnesota the
treasury seems to be almost empty, yet we in
our faith believe that the Lord will provide.
But faith without works, and we accomplish
nothing. The appeal from Mrs. Nmd was a
very earnest one.
This was the anniversary of the Freedman's
Aid society, and the announcement brought
forth a very large congregation. After a aong,
Rev. D. Tice read a portion of scripture, and
Rev. John Stafford engaged in prayer.
Rev. D. Morgan, as treasurer, made his re
port from 100 charges47 more are to be heard
from. Some of the charges took up no collec
tion for the Freedman, but put in a small sum
for conscience sake. Total this year 470, as
against $454 of last year. The report in the
main was an encouraging one.
Dr. Hartzell, of New Orleans, said he wat
here to speak of one of the benevolent socie
ties of the church. He said he would give
some words concerning the South, and, by the
South, we mean the States where slavery once
existed. It contains about 14,000,000 of souls,
and the problem we have to solve is a great
one. I present it to you because I believe the
whole American people are concerned in it.
He reverted to the war, referring to the bravery
of the Southern people. He believed they were
wrong, but we must give them the credit of
being a brave people. They went into the

enough to fight for their convictions, we must
Speaking of the missionary work in the
South, the speaker said there were no instances
where money could be better expended than in
supporting the teachers of these schools and
helping educate some young men in their study
of the ministry. This conference had done
well in reporting thus far $470.80. Over forty
charges wers yet to hear from, which would in
crease the amount. The speaker urged the
preachers to give the facts to the curches, and
he was sure that next year a much larger
amount would be raised.
The speaker said that if any wanted to place
anything in his hands as a special callection to
aid some worthv young man, he would receive
it. Mr. E. E. Payne said he would give $5 a
month for a year, and laid the first payment
on the table. Others followed in small
amounts until $50 in cash were laid on the ta
ble, which with the subscription made $105.
Hamline University will no longer stand in
its unfinished condition as a monument to the
lassitude and indifference of the Minnesota
Methodists. One proposition is to assess every
member of the conference 50 cents, and have
each minister act as agent to make the collec
tions. This will do away with a paid agent.
Another is to regularly employ an agent to take
the matter in hand. If the latter is adopted,
rumor says John Stafford is the man.
Brother McKinlay put in an appearance at
the Cook house this morning. He was born and
brought up in the Minnesota Methodist
conference and never was away from home
until last year, when he took a transfer to
Pittnburgh. He probably got home sick, but,
Adam-like, lays the responsibility of his com
ing back to his wife. He says she couldn't
stand the climate. Mack couldn't stand it
either, although he never in his life looked bet
ter than he does now. He looks younger and
more ambitious by far than when he went. We
all welcomed him back with heart and hand.
The morning service commenced at 8:30, led
by Rev. D. Cobb. The bishop called the reg
ular session to order at 9 A. M. and the secre-
ta.j' read the minutes of the previous meeting.

The fourth question was again taken up and
the name of Andrew R. Cass was
called. He was not present, and his
presiding elder, T. M. Gossard, said
that his character was above reproach, but
that as a preacher he was inefficient. He asked
to be continued on trial for another year. He

Rev. J. C. Hartzell, editor of the Southwest

who spoke in behalf of the freedmen, on last
evening, spoke before the conference again
PLEA FOR A PAPER.
Dr. Authur Edwards, editor of the NortJt
western Christian Advocate, of Chicago, spoke
in behalf of his paper and said if the members
of the conference wish to close his mouth they
must get his paper into every Methodist family
in the State.
The following was adopted:

TIME CALLED ON BROTHER RICH.
J. D. Rich's case came up and Elder Brooks
said he really did not know what to say in the
matter and moved that he be continued.
Rev. Satterlee said he was thoroughly secular
ized and had been. That he was as able to
preach as many others, and we ought to meet
the case fair and square and change his rela

Gossard thought perhaps it was better to inves

Dr. Brooks said Mr. Chaffee's reasons ought
not to be considered now, because the confer

for years. Has this brother's relations changed
any during the last year? If he knows that
the conference wants him to get oat of the

The case was finally disposed of by passing

His relation was then continued for one more
year as a supernumerary.

be acted upon by conference in secret session.
The conference will not adjourn at any rate
before Tuesday noon, perhaps not then.

Sherman on Resumption.
CHICAGO. Sept. 2t.The following letter was
received here to-day by Thomas W. Nicola,
ecretary of the Honest Money League, in ans
wer to enquiries by him to Secretary Sherm an
regarding the recent reports about a change of
his views and the policy of resumption. It is
the most emphatic declaration on the subject
which has come from one of the heads of de
partments in Washington.
WASHINGTON, Sept. 19, 1878.DEAR SIB
Your letter of the 16th inst. is received. I have
no wonder if in the face of such telegrams as
have been sent over the wires, you should feel
distracted and confounded, but there is not
one word of truth in the whole story you men
tion. Nobody here has proposed to recede from
the position we have taken on the resumption
act, its feasibility and advisability.
No member of the cabinet has
proposed a chance, nor has tho President been
consulted, nor has anyone even thought of such
a thing. The whole thing is a scandalous and
outrageous fabrication. The change in the
mode of paying out silver dollars was the pre
text, but the real object, it seems to me, was
simply a desire by newspaper correspondents to
create a sensation. They have falsified and
perverted an interview I had with the Republi
can editor here, but I think the correction has
already been fully made or will be made clear
within a day or two. Go on, therefore, with
courage and hope. You may be certain there
will be a letting down by the exaeutive branch
of the government as to resumption on the first
day of January next. Very truly yours.
