.Nature of Conference.
The official programme of the con
ference has the following to say of
the nature of the conference:
" This is to be a conference simply.
It is not a meeting for the inairura
tion of a new and independent mnove-:
ment or for the multiplication of ma
chinery. It can not and will not leg
islate. an'd the r-esuht hoped fromi it is
that it may make more effective the
organization already ofBicially approv
ed by the church.
"This is a laymen's conference,
-aled not with any idea of partiality
toward a particular class of church
members. but rather on the other
hand with a view to empldi size the
fact that the call of the hour is t.o
the whole chor-h-to the laymen as
well as to the ministers, and to give
prominence to ti? still other fact that
the time has come when the men Of
the church should assume their full
share of resposibility and personal
activity along with the women who
have shown such commendable derv
Purpose of Conference.
In the official prospectus which was
sent. out with the call of the meeting
the pu:poses of the conferene are

and opportunities of the church. To
this end the members are to considex
the best methods for meeting the
needs and opportunities that may
present themselves for consideration.
A %reot work that ,he conference
hopes to a.ecomplish is i:1 regard to
the educational campagin it purposes
to wage. There will be such a cam
paign in education arranged through
