SKETCH OF HIS LIFE. '
At Every State of It He Was a Bril
Bishop Charles Rett Galloway, one
of the general superintendents of the

BISHOP CHABX.ES B. GALLOWAY.
vera attack, due to enfeebled heart ae-.
(ton and hardening of the arteries. Al
though only in his COth year, the prodi
gious volume of work he performed as
the "Mission Bishop of Methodism," had
greatly weakened his once powerful phy
tanic, and he was in no condition to
withstand the lung congestion that
caused hit death.
Xearly all of Bishop Galloway's loved
ones were at the bedside when tho eiul
came, nnd other reached the city dur
ing the afternoon, having been hastily
summoned by telegraph.
The passing away of the foremost
bishop in Methodism was quiet and
peaceful. There were no death agonies,
no suffering, no anguish of flesh or spir
it while tho sands of his life slowly
ebbed away. Save for the labored
breathing incident to the pulmonary
troublo that was the direct cause of de
mise, he dropped into eternal "lumber
like a little child crooned to sleep by the
lullabies of a loving mother.
It was at first hoped that the illucts
of the distinguished divinu would prove
nothing more serious than a severe cold.
Much apprehension was felt by the fam
ily and attending physicians, however,
on account of his enfeebled physical con
dition, and this feeling changed to one
of genuine alarm when a mild form of
pneumonia developed in one lung. All
that medical skill or science could sug
gest was brought into play, but tho low
vitality of the patient, his once jow
erful physique and magnificent constitu
tion ravaged by the periods of sickness
with which ho had been afflicted during
the.past three years, was aguiust him.
In Unconscious State.
Ono or two moments of consciousness
occurred Tuesday morning. On one oc
casion he recognized his faithful wifu
during a lucid interval, and was able to
greet his daughter, Mrs. W. S. 1'. Ven
tre, when she reached the bedside. At
times lie wis delirious, talked incoher
ently of his church labors, of the liter
ary work ho had left unfinished, and
once he mentioned the name, of Jeffer

centennial celebration of the birth of
Jefferson I)aI held at the I'nltersity
of Mississippi, that Bishop Gallon ay de
livered tho principal uddress which was
pronounced by literary critics and his
torians to be the best summary ever
given of thu life and character of the
great Confederate chieftain.
An All-Night Rattle.
Nightfall approached, the breathing
of the dying divine grew- more labored
and tho phyaicinii reluctantly admitted
that they had lost the light. Xo hu
man ugency could prolong the life of
Mississippi' best beloved son.
The end did not come, however, as
soon us pby li iuiis expected. Although
in an unconscious Maty, 'at the very
threshold of death, the latent energy of
Guartcsi Commercial Appr!.
Methodist Episcopal Chtirek, South, was
born in Kosciusko, Miss., Sept. 1, IStJ.
His father was a prosperous physicisn
and a man of taste nnd culture. The
son was tenderly reared and early Im
bibed clear and strong religious convic
tions and followed high purposes and
ideals. After attending the common
schools he graduated with distinctleu
from tho University of Misdippl. He
was then scarcely IS years of age, and
had even liefore this' begun preparation
for entrance into the Christian ministry,
which high office ho had long adorned
with an almost unexampled demotion of
service and eloquence of message Kven
at this early age he gave eklence of
remarkable gifts as an orator. Una of
his professors at the University of Mis
sissippi was the lato Associate Justice
Lamar of the supremo court of the Unit
ed State. When young Galloway was
leaving hi alma mater the great jurist
"Charley, I and other are glad to
learn that you arc to enter the minis
try some of us would like to go to con
gress from this district."
The transcendent power of the bishop,
a afterward displayed before great au
dience in both the Old and the New
World, showed that his early preceptor
bad not underestimated the possibilities
of his career. As a public leader to
would have gone to the highest civic sta
tions a easily aa ho achieved distinction
In the ranks of the Christian miuistry.
In 18CS, soon after his graduation, he
entered the Mississippi conference, In
which affiliation he remained until ele
vated to the higher offlco of tho episco
pacy. His deotion to his native state
waa a passion, and yet he was perhaps
the most cosmopolitan and national pl lu
lled man to lie found In all thu South.
He was the closo friend and counsellor
of many public men in his own state and
tho nation, and also of all parties. Kx
President Roosevelt was a great ad
mirer of the bishop, und sought hit ad-
ico in morn than ono instance where hi
policies affected the well-being of tho
people of the South.
Aa a member of the Mississippi con
ference Bishop Galloway served a num
ber of appointments, Including 1'ort Gib
son, Yazoo City, Jackson and YUksburg.
While pastor at the last named place
ho was exposed, in 1878, to tho great ep
demlc of yellow fever, which in that year
ravaged the entire Mississippi valley. He
was himself stricken, after week of vis
itation among the slik and dying, but ho
rallied miraculously to live thirty won
derful and actite year.
Ill 1883 he was elected editor of tho
New Orleans Christlun Advocate, then
a paper' of wide and influential circula
tion. For four years he ut on the tri
pod, and during these jrars hi fame ex
tended to every part of the rhurch. hen

Wa Forelitn Minister.
Bishop Galloway fairly won the dis
tinction, worn by Dr. Inke, tho bishop
of the church, that of llng styled "Tho
Foreign Mlnlsfer of Methodism." He
w sent more frequently abroad, than
any other bishop of the church, and
served in all these capacities with such
effectiveness and ability as to make hliu
not only the best known, but also (lis
most influential personality In Universal
Methodism. In Canada, In England, in
Ireland, In the Orient rccatcdly, and In
South Ameiiea he visited officially a
