turb the men others said no good
would ever come of it. Then the
men, many of them, were against it.
Some said it was a graft others had
their favorite churches, and were
afraid the mission workers might
say something against their church.
In other cases the foremen of
the camps were very unfriendly to
wards the missionary, which made it
very hard, especially when he felt
he was not welcome in the camp.
But I am now thankful to say that
practically all of these obstacles are
gone. Some of the lumber firms are
now requesting that a missionary be
sent to their camp and are anxious
to have him spend all of his time
among their men, and for this the
company is willing to pay the entire
salary of the man, and board and
keep him, besides the men in the
various camps are always glad to
see the missionary now, and look
forward to his coming and give him
the glad hand and throughout the
entire service pay the most profound
respect. When the missionary is
about to leave he receives many in
vitations to come again.
"I am glad to tell you that the
work this past summer has been
reorganized, and, as I have said,
instead of it being any longer a local
work, it is now fast becoming
national in character. We now
have such men as John H. Converse,
L. L. Rev. J. Wilbur Chapman,
D. Rev. Parley E. Zartmann, D.
Hon. Hugh H. Hanna and others
organized as a committee, with Rev.
J. C. Buswell acting as general
superintendent,with the head
office in the Lumber Fxchange,
Minneapolis. It is the purpose to
extend this work just as rapidly as
possible throughout our great" coun
try, wherever logging is carried on,
not only holding meetings in the
camps, but giving the men reading
matter, taking care of many of the
poor fellows, who fall by the way
when they come to town, and visit
ing the various hospitals where the
men are taken while sick.
Sometimes it is to carry reading
matter or a little fruit, or it maybe
to write the last letter to mother, or
some other loved one, or to listen to
the story of a misspent life, with a
desire to die in the faith of their
4 Many times, as I have stood by
such sick beds, how I have wished
that the Christian world could only
understand this great need that is at
our doors. And why should not
these men in our forests have some
attention paid to them by the church?
Have we not already been too long
awakening to this condition? Has
the church, for many, many
years, been sending missionaries to
foreign countries, and at the same
tine been overlooking this great
need at home? Not but what it is
our duty to send the missionary
abroad, for the command of Christ
was to go into all the world. But
we must not do this at the expense
of our home work, for let us never
forget that our great America is the
dumping ground of almost all other
nations, and many of these nations
should be sending missionaries to
make good citizens of their people,
since they have chosen this fair land
for the home ot themselves and their
Because of this neglect of our
men in the forest, we now hear
the cry everywhere that its men
are fast becoming hoboes, tramps,
etc. The wonder to me is that
they are half as good as they are.
Let us stop for a minute and con
sider. Years ago the men of the
forest went away up the river,
as it was called. They were many
miles away from civilzation, but at
the same time they were away from
temptation, for they staid in the
woods most of the year. But of
late years they log by rail, and no
sooner is a railroad surveyed through
the forest to get out a piece of
timber, then every few miles a town
springs up, which at first consists
principally of saloons, gambling
houses and brothels. These not
only have their regular expenses,
but the owners are ready to bleed
them for every cent, and in turn
they have to make it out of the
lumberjack, for he is one they can
expect to make their living from.
And how often, when a lumber
jack, whose only fault was to go
to town and drink too much, tried
to get some justice, was told to
go back and earn another stake.
In many cases he is spoken of as
only an old drunk but what has
made him this? Was it not his
surroundings? If he went to many of
these towns and wanted a shave, he
had to go into a saloon if he wanted
to eat he had to go ipto a saloon
or if he wanted abed he had to
go over a saloon, or in many cases
was glad fo take the sawdust
floor of a saloon and in the cold
winter's day, the saloon was the
only place provided for the lumber
jack to keep from freezing. He
had no place to sit down in com
fort to read or rest or warm him
self, but rum, rum, rum was staring
him in the face, and to the poor
fellows, who have the temptation,
think of the awful results.
"is it any wonder, I say, that we
need missionaries at home, and
especially in this part of the state?
But the question is so often
asked, does this work do any good?
Let us see: I feel sure a few
men, who are now living a good
straight life, will not object to me
using their names, such men as
O'Connor, who today has a fine
farm in North Dakota.
A few years ago he was down
Al Moore, who was picked up on
the streets of Bemidji when even
his own wife was ready to give him
up. For many years before he died
he lead a clean life.

aries came to the camp.
And there are many others yes,
hundreds who will testify they
have been helped by this work.
Let us remember, these men are
worth saving. Many of them
are mere boys from our farms,
who need the influence of the
missionary, surrounded as they are
by these awful evils.
"in conclusion, let me say the
better class of people in all our
towns should take more interest in
our men from the woods. They are
not bad men. They are more often
victims and feel that nobody cares
for them, unless they can get their
money. How I long for the day,
and I believe it is near at hand,
when in every lumbering center we
will have fine hotels for our men
from the woods, where they can get
a bath, a meal and a clean bed for
a reasonable price with no evil
