Bishop Soule in the chair.
The Conference proceeded to select
the place for the location of the Eastern
division of the Book concern. New
York, Richmond, Petersburg and Char
leston were severally nominated.
Dr. Smith, after explaining the rea
sons-why the committee referred the se
lection of the place for the location of
the Eastern division of the Book con
cern, enlatged upon the following points,
she-wing that Richmond, Va., instead of
New York, was the proper place for the
location of the Eastern establishment.
1. The membership of the Churoh
within the bounds of the Virginia Con
ference would not liberally c'intribute
money to build up another Book con
cern in the city of New York. In this
opinion of the wishes and sympathies of
the membership, the brethren of the Vir
ginia Delegation fully concurred with
2. New York affords facilities-great
factlilis, it is true, for the publication
of books, but he maintained .that the es
tablishtent located in Richmond, could I
as efectually secure them, as if located 1
in the city of New Yo k.
3. He suggested the dimculy of en
4. The location of the Book concern
in New York would be in violation of the
great and important design of the Flan
of Separation. True, he said, it would.
violate no express provision of the plan,
but its general dt sign, whic: was to pro
mote the peace of the two great bra eh
t s of the Methodist family of the Un;ted
Dr. Hamilton said,-A Book concern
located in Ridtitond o0 Petersburg would
fail to nwaes the views and command the
supputt of the Church in the extrema
South. For they had imbibed the sen
timent, right or wrong, that the expense
of publication would be unnecessarily
high, much higher than in New York.
A Delegate from one of the Conferences
in the exteme South had informed him,
that if the Book room was located in
Richmond, the market of the would
would be open before him, and he should
buy where he could do so cheapest.
Dr. Smith said that if we located it in
New York, it would be for the purpose
of competition, and thus we should be
brought into collision with the N. York
Book concern. But who has said this ?
No one. He should deprecate this as
much as any other man. But it need not
and iould not be. We should go there
not for competition, but to save our mot
ney. - .
Mr. Drake replied to Dr. Hamilton,
and gave his views, generally, agtinst
