for the cane was C71.85.

The amount received for the watch

amounted to from eight to fifteen mil

of reduction the postolllce department

There were presi-nt nt the meeting '2
preachers who devote their whole time
to preaching. In addition to these Kid.
Simmons resident preacher in your
town and niVHclf. Also U. A, Ilomnnn,
who Is doing evangelistic work for the
society of tlio Christian Church of Mo.
There wcro about fourteen ciders of
congregations from abroad and a niod
crate attendance of visitors from the
country supplementing the gatherings
ninilc of the people in town.
J lioro wero devotional exercises nt
the commencement of all our business
sessions conducted by some one select
ed for that purpose, and preaching each
night. E. W. Hornilon, editor of the
"Christian Quarterly" was asked to
act as our presiding officer. A commit
tee was appointed to look after the or
der of exercises and make such changes
in the published program as the meet
ing thought proper.
The tirst subject discussed was the
Sunday or Bible School.
The result was a united sentiment
that wo ought to confine ourselves to
tlio ouc object of teaching the Bible to
the young, and to put aside everything
not absolutely necessary re this end.
The two subjects Missionary work,
and church and individual co-operation
were blended and discussed as one.
One paper read upon the topic seem
ed to cover the grouud so completcly
tbat little was said in addition thereto.
The points of argrecment reuched were
these; that too much prominence is
given to this idea of sending, and not
enough to the scriptural oue of going:
and when individuals are so imbued
with tho love of Christ and a desire to
save souls, that they go forward to do
this wurk, either nuur by, or abroad,
then it becomes the duty of indivsduals
and congregations to help them iu all
things necessary to accomplish the
On Wednesday the discussion of the
subject "shall we cease contending for
the scriptural eldership?" resulted In
the united answer, no. Among oilier
points made apparent, this una was
probably the most prominent that
churches should do more to aid tbe ci
ders in qualifying themselves for their
TLe question for the afternoon
"What course do the scriptures re iuiru
us to pursue towards tliosu who intro
duce the organ luto the worship, with
other innovations nut warranted by the
word of God?' was handled with es
pecial euro ami a close adherence to
the word of God.
All seemed to roneh the point thai
our duty was clear and not to be mis
taken. As to when this duty is to be
fully and rigidly exeouted was to be
determined in the light of the law of
love aud forbearance.
1 heso investigations ended tho days
Thursday's tirst question, "shall we
maintain Jules Dclnuuy in France, and
H. W. Olllcer, atAtoka, iu the Indian
Territory P" brought out information
regarding the charac'.er of these men,
the kinds of work they were doing snd
the amount of good.
The mind of the assembly was that
we ought to maintain them.
With this ended tbe discussion of
topics; for want of time.
Tho unity of seutiment reached iu all
these investigations was unu-uul, the
geuiality aud christian courtesy thut
prevailed was exemplary aud inspirit
ing, the cordiality, and good senst
without afiectatiuu manifested, roubed
the meeting of all stiil'uass and secured
perfect ordur without friction.
There were no rcsulutious passed, and
no vute taken upon any matter. So
much did all enjoy and appreciate that
it was agreed to have two meetings iu
