Sercrul hours before the nominations

"It is pleasant to know that all Mr.

until after nil the ballots are counted "
Then she talked about her husband with
natural pride, and as she pointed out bis

Is no reason why the wedding should not

This news has the sound of authen

kuown as tbe Johu Street Methodist Church.
Iu tbls church were a small number of
colored people, and the husband of the ,
minister's colored cook was tbe Janitor ot '
tbe cburcb. In 179G these colored people
becoming dissatisfied with the treatment
they received, withdrew from tbe church,
and under tbe guidance or Juices Varick
worshiped wberc er they could until finally
they built a church or their own at what
is now Church and Leonard streets. New
York. This they held aud worshiped in
until 1858, when Ihey sold tbe prorcrty
ror $90,000 aud erected an edifice ut West
Tenth and Weedier streets, aud wblcb is

WORD TO THE GIRLS.
"Our Girls and Tbeir Possibilities," was
the subject ot the Rev. Dr. W. U. Chamber's
address, and to tbe splendid qualities and
achievements orthe young women he paid
a gjpwiog tribute.
After a selection by the choir, en
titled "Calling. Today," tbe Rev. Dr.
G. S. Adams spoke on "Our Numerical,
Intellectual and Religious Strength." Dr.
Adams said the A. M. E. Zlon Church was
the largest and oldest church in the coun
try: that it was the largest colored organ
ization In America. He said at the present
time there were 497.871 communicants,
3.000 ministers, 4,073 churches and Sun
da) schools.sand over 123,000 Sunday
Dr. Adams briefly reviewed the history
or the churcb for the 100 years, nnd
men who, as colored men, had been con
nected with the Zion Church. The race,
lie said, was making great progress in
the world, and the church was keeping
up with the procession.
J. C. Dancy spoke at some length on
"Our Civil and Religious Liberty." He
Interestingly reviewed the progress of the
colored race from the time of the church's
organization down to the emancipation
or the slaves, and the great progress or
the colored man up to the present time.
Mrs. J. II. Small, wife of the bishon.
spoke on "Woman's place in the church,"
and pointed out the duties or the women or
the congregation. She told or how heln-
I Ml they could be to the pastor and to the
church and how they could aid in many
ways. "The origin and development or
