The company applied In January, 1894,

ored preachers, stewards and one class

prayer, followed by the sacrament..
After the ToU call Kev. D. W. Hays de
livered an address of welcome, in which he
took occasion to extend a hearty greeting
to tho members of tbe conference. The
meeting, be hoped, would exert a beneficial
influence upon local Methodism, as It will
afford an opportunity for cultivating a
doner union among tbe members of tbe con
ference and for stimulating discussion upon
i topics in which aa Christians and Methodists
all have a common interest.
He 'argued against the tendency of 'cx
clusivcness in church life, which is, so
prevalent among other denominations.
"The Methodist Episcopal church," said
the speaker, "is peculiar Jn that It has In
its membership an appreciable number of
both colors. Thnt there has been some fric
tion growing out of this mixed relation was
just what might have been expected. We
arc glad to know that we are approaching
what promises to be such an adjustment
as will give perfect accord to all factions."
: In dosing he said:
"We offer a word of welcome not from our
own lips only but from our hearts, and we
hope your stay among us will be pleasant
as well as profitable, and that you may all
go away much benefited by the results of

The recent examinations" showed 'tip ward
of SO per cent of failures, and of the 107
young men who reported not over forty
live were admitted! ""TUts" great number
of rejections Is not so much due to the sever
ity of theexamlnations as to the poorprepa
ration of the boys, many'of whom had re
cch cd appointments only a few weeks, and
In some instances a few days, before they
were required to answer questions which
none but those who have been well
coached can expect to meet successfully.
Instead of having 'a qaofa of 350 cadets.
Including two classes which have gradu
ated and are now at sea on cruises, the
academy's corps will be greatly reduced
this term, and the full battalion will not
consist of possibly more than 250. The
semi-annual examination In January will
still further diminish it, so that the country
will lose the opp6rtu<y" or educating

The West Point policy xfdoslgnating
boys one year in advance of the time they
arc ordered to report for examination has
been found to worlf to great advantage, and
the number of vacancies existing when the
term begins has now been reduced to a
minimum. ' . . .
Except for places created by failures
and unexpected resignations all vacancies
at the academy can be anticipated, a year,
is they are at West Point, and it has been
urged for this reason that the laws should be
so amended as to permit members to desig
nate candidates several months In advance
of tbe examinations. Such action -would
not only be just to the boys, but,wonW, result
in maintaining the corps to tlie full quota
allowed by law. The number -of failures
would also be decreased and tbe qualifica
tions of candidates greatly Increased.
