Ideal nnd to travel ever on toward greater
The bishop Impressed upon the younif
ministers the value nnd the great need of
study, nnd declared that they should al?
ways set np,irt ? time In wh?sti they
hold uninterrupted communication with
God. A minister seen out of his study In
the morning, unless It Is for sickness or
a funeral should he discounted.
Intense quiet prevailed In the houso
while he spoke, nnd the pervert? "Amoiis"
that came here and there attested the
undivided interest of the auditors.
At 12 o'clock the special order for the
nay?the Virginia Conference Orphanage
was called. Tho orphnnage Is ? Rich?
mond institution, and Its report, brief
und to tho point, will be of .particular
interest. The paper Is signed by the Rev.
?. H. Rawllngs, president of the Board
of Trustees. It rends ns follow!?,
"Since our lnst report one year ago, In
addition to the two splendid cottages,
then just erected, our administration
building has been completed and fur?
nished at a cost of $25,000. The orphanage
was opened actually September 1, 1902.
A year ugo there were twelve children
under our care. We have now fifty-one
children In the orphanage, have agreed
to take six others and there are many
other applications for admission not yet
acted upon. The buildings and equip?
ment are paid for. We havo raised very
satisfactorily our running expenses up
to date. The farm, 7SS-10 acres, one mile
west of Richmond, cost $17,600, to be.paid
for $2,600 cash nnd $3,000 a year for live
years. We have paid $6,600, have money
Subscribed for balance due this year and
owe $9,000, payable $3,000 per year.
"It Is our purposo to take these homo
less children Into tho orphanage, give
them a business oducation, train them in
some useful employment so that thoy
will be able to provide for themselves
when they aro old enough, or whenever
possible, put them Into Christian homes,
where they will bo well treated and
trained Intellectually and morally. Wo
raise again our Ebenezcr, believing most
confidently that tho Lord has led us
hitherto. Wo are gratlQed beyond ex?
pression at the reception that our or?
phanage has everywhere gotten at the
hands of our people. There has been
no movement among us that from Its
Inception has gone so easily and enthu
RlasUcally. Other claims may some?
times embarrass preachers and people In
the churches, but this never does. The
preachers testify that It Is a delight to
present the ?Tphanago to the people, and
%he people are always ready to respond
with generous gifts. We request that
our presiding bishop appoint J. W. Bled

made an earnest appeal for the children
and for more orphanages, the report as

TRANSFER MATTER SETTLED.
At this juncture thero happened a pe?
culiar thing. ? sudden silence prevailed
In tho room when the Rev. Jam?s Can?
non, Jr., of1 Blackstone, arose-and begun
to read from the resolution bearing upon
the much discussed " transfer matter.
Everybody expected a tremendous light
and a reference on the part of tho bish?
ops to entertain tho motion. The con
lerence was cocked and primed for a
big debate. But It was a story of what ?
did not happen.
"All In favor of adoption say 'aye,' "
culled the bishop at once.
The chorus of ayes was broken Into
by the Kev. R. M. Mnxey, ot Richmond,
who arose to endorse tho resolution. The
question was then put again, and the
resolutions were unanimously adopted as
Whereas there Is a mlsapprehecnslon on
the ?part of the general public as to tho
real position of tho Virginia Conference
? ntho question of transfers, it being sup?
posed by many that the conference does
not want any transfers, and that It ?s
opposed to that featuro of our oconomy;
Resolved 1, That wo believe in the prin?
ciple of transfer, thinking it very Im?
portant that we should nave a conve?
nient method for transferring! men from
trie part of our territory to another, re?
lieving the crowded condition of some of
our conf?rences, and supplying the needs
o? conference,:?. Inadequately manned.
?Resolved' 2, " That we extend a hearty
welcome to nil brethren who nre trans?
ferred to us without any special appoint?
ment In view, who come ready and will?
ing to receive, any appointment which
may bo assigned them after the needs
of our work have been thoroughly can?
vassed by the proper authorities.
Resolved 3, 'That wo cannot extend a
hearty welcome to any transfers who
come to us with nn understanding made
in advance with a particular church; that
we believe such arrangements to be de?
structive of that fraternal spirit which
should characterize the relations of
Methodist preachers with each other and
with tho local churches, and that wo
furthermore believe that such arrange?
ments are not necessary for properly
caring for and developing our work.
Holding the above views, we think It
our duty to place them on record that
our people and the church at large may
know our position on this subject.

The service was long, but of tho very
greatest Interest to all.
The cnblnet held two meetings, one In

Rapid headway. It is said, is being made
with the nppolntments, but tbe brethren
are still kopt guessing. A number of

Professor ?. C. Mtchell then addressed
tho body. The work of the board, he
said, nmong tho Indians, In Cuba, In the

At D P. M. the body ndjourned to visit,
by special Invitation, the Deaf And Dumb
Hon J. T. Ellyson read the report on the
Education Board as follows:
The board has under its care this ses?
sion forty-two young men, twelve Of
whom are pursuing their studies at tho
Southern Baptist Theological Seminary,
and thirty nt Richmond College The num?
ber of student* this session is fifteen less
than last j'enr. Tho report calls attention
to the failing oft In tho number of young
men preparing for the ministry not only
In Virginia, but throughout the country,
and mentions the fnct that notwithstand?
ing that there havo been organized in
Virginia in the last decado more than
150 churches, and that the membership
of the churches of the general associa?
tion has increased more than 20,000. yet
tho number of students for tho ministry
I? no greater than It was ten years ago.
The financial condition of the board has
been very satisfactory, tho receipts hav?
ing been sufficient to pay all of tho ex?
penses during the year.
The report calls attention to the death
of Mr. Josinh Ryland, for many years se?
cond vice-president of the board, and one
of its oldest members, both In point of
service and of years.
Emphasis Is laid upon the desirableness
of thorough preparation on the part of
ministerial students, and tho churches are
urged to impress upon the young men
they recommend to the care of the board
tho value of a complete college and semi?
nary course, and the Importanco of mak?
ing the fullest possible preparation for the
work to which thuy have been called. The
beneficiaries of tho board aro commend?
ed as worthy of the continued support
nnd confidence of tho denomination.
Discussion was postponed. "Our denom?
inational papers" was the next theme
discussed at the evening session.
R. H. Pitt was In charge and speeches
In warm commendation of the Religious
Herald were made by Drs. C. S. Black
well, of Norfolk, and J. M. Frost, of
William Ellyson, Esq., then read the
report on Stato missions as follows:
"Praise God from whom all blessing?
flow,'?* is a fitting expression with which
to open this report, since we are able to
report the moet blessed year of work ever1
done by the Baptists of Virginia. This is
true of nil our denominational enterprises.
The board under Instructions of the
general association has Increased Its mis?
sionary force to 100. This Is tho largest
force ever employed In any one year.
They occupied 332 stations, preached 9,333
sermons, baptized 1,334 persons, aided pas?
tors In meetings where 1,741 persons pro?
fessed faith, made "(),MS religious visits,
organized 31 Sunday-schools and 10
churches, wero building 32 houses of wor?
ship, and completed 10. In the work of
church building they raised $1S,531, and of
this amount, $14.300 -was raised on' their
Special attention has been given this
yoar to evangelistic work. The board has
now In the field four brethren finely
qualified for this difficult and exacting
service. Rev, Vf. S. Leak e entered upon
his work April 1st, Rev. W. F. Fisher on
June 1st, Revs. M. J: Willie and J. B.
Craft on November 1st. These are labor?
ing in fields where the spiritual destitu?
tion Is greatest. The board suggests the
policy of 'giving to each of those a spe?
cial territory In which to labor.
, . COLORED EVANGELIZATION,
. The board is'giving .special attention
to. the question how to reach and help
the colored' people of the State. The
report says: "We should not only con?
tinue to give them financial aid, but we
should have a cloarer understanding of
our relations-to them and a stronger
faith In what the gospel of Christ can
do tQr tholr moral and spiritual elevation.
Wo cannot,too. highly commend tho spirit
and tono of recent'editorials In the Re?
ligious Herald on this subject. We think
the time has come when tho general as?
sociation ought to take this phase ot our
work under prayerful consideration."
Specially favorable mention Ir made of
tho work of Field Secretary? Garland, who
has proved himself pre-eminently fitted
for arousing Interest in this great work.
Through his wise efforts a number of
laymen have been led to make special con?
tributions sufficient to pny the salaries
of three of the State ovangellsts.
The finances of the board are in ex?
cellent shape, as may bo seen from the

The board recommends?First, the con?
tinuance for at least one year of tho dis?
trict campaign meetings: Second, that In
each district association, as soon after tbe
general association ns possible, the pas?
tors hold meetings of one or two days' du?
ration for prayer and conference about
the spiritual Interests of their fields and
the best moans of arousing an Interest
In our people on tho subject of personal
work for the salvation of men. The board
asks this year for $26,000 from the Bap?

Struggle Between the Tigers and
Elis at New Haven.
To-day the greatest gamo of tho entire
foot-ball sermon is to bo played on tho
Tale field at Now Haven, the annual
championship struggle between Princeton
and Tale, This promises to be ono of the
most spirited and hard fought struggles
of the year, Yale is the favorite, though
Just why it should bo does not appear.
Princeton has the bettor record of the
two for the season, and has a heavy and
uniformly powerful team, both in dofen
bIvo and offensive play. It will bo a strug?
gle of gridiron giants, with the result as
uncertain as it has over been in tho an?
nual, mooting? between tho teams of tho
two 'great universities. Yale has tho ad?
vantage of playing at home, and Prince?
ton must Iruvol a long distance on the
eve of tho gamo. Yale men are said to bo
in perfect condition, while one of Prlnco. I
ton's stars has Just been disqualified by
the faculty and may not bo In tho gamo.
That one is Full Back McClave. Odds of
two to ono aro being offered on Vnle, and
many predict the wearers of the blue will
score 19 points.-There Is no betting that
Princeton will not score,
? Cornell and Columbia, two well matched
toams, will meet on Percy field, at Ithaca,
to-day, Harvard will meet the splendid
swift Dartmouth eleven nt ' Cambridge
this afternoon, and University of Penn?
sylvania will play tho Carlisle Indians nt
Franklin field, Philadelphia. .George?
town will play Columbian University In
Washington, and North Carolina will
meet Clemeon Collego at Chapel Hill.' In
this city, Richmond College and William
and Mary will play. '
Columbia ouelit to defeat Cornell on tho
showing of tho teams, but by a small
margin. Harvard will outpoint Dartmouth
? to il points, and tho Indians should play
Pennsylvania to a standstill, though m Nili
lighter. P?iinsy has no walkover, but
inay win by a small margin. Georgetown
will have jlttlo trouble with Columbian,
and North Carolina will have a hard prop?
osition in Clemson.
One of the ?iost Interesting games of
the season, affording a comparison of tho
best teams of east and west, will be
the game at West Point to-day botwoon
the cadets and tho strong University of
High School Wins.
The Richmond High School won the
came yeeterduy from the Richmond Acad?
emy by the score of 10 to 0,
The garde was the championship con
tost of tho c|ty schools.
The features of tho game were the
gain* through the lino by Montgomery

fine and Pillow also played an excellent
j;nme for tho High School.
