SPICY HURCH MERTING.
Congregational Meeting at Central
Church on Sunday Following
Dr. WoUing's Farewell.
A schism seemed imminent in the
congregation of Central Methodist
church, this city, Sunday morning, at
a co-gregational meeting following
the services. Dr. J. W. Wolling, the
pastor, has served Central chureh
for two years, and at- the recent ses
sion of the Methodist conference in
Ahbevile he was removed to Allen
dale. There has been some feeling
engendered among the congregation
on account of his removal. It seems
that the board of stewards requested
his removal, and that many members
of the congregation, and the people
of the city generally, wanted him to
remain. Dr. Wolling went to Con
ference with 'a good record behind
him, and with a clean balance sheet,
little dreaming that there was any
trouble. It seems that when he got
to conference he was informed that
the cause of his removal was the re
quest of his board of stewards.
Dr. Wolling announced that he
would preach his farewell sermon to
his. congregation Sundaymorning, an d
his farewell to the people of the city
generally Sunday night, it having
been understood that the Rev. M.
L' Banks, the new pastor, would take
charge on next Sunday.
Dr. Wolling preached a very elo
quent and able sermon Sunday morn
ing from the text from I Tim 4, 16:
"Take heed unto thyself and unto
the doctrine; continue in them; for
in doing this thou shalt both save
thyself, and them that hear thee.
Dr. Wolling's sermon was a fine
presentation of his text, concluding
with the hope that he had not only
saved himself, but that during his
minitry in Newberry impressions
had been left and desires strengthen
ed and made higher, and some called
back from the waderer's path to
Jesus. "Have.I saved. myself2".he
asked. "With all my imperfee
tion," he said, "I can stand before
God and say that I have7 and hope
that I have saved others."
In the congregationa meeting fol
lowing the services Dr. Wollig com
mended his suceessor,.-4he Rev. M.
L. Banks, to the congregation. He
had never been intimately associated
with him, he said, but in all he had
seen of him he hzad found him a
pleasant gentleman. He did not seek
to come to Newberry, said Dr. Wol
hitg, but no doubt he would have been
willing to come. Dr. Wollink urged
the congregation to gather around
him as friends and brethren. "Don't
let him feel lonely. Visit him, sus
tain him financially, and stand by
him. He will have faults, as the rest
of us have, and it won't be long be
fore somebody is displeased. Then is
the time for you to show your true
nobility-officers and members
don't stand back mouthing over it,
but go up and tell him what i;he dif
ficulty is, and see if he can mend it.
I wish I could im.press that upon
The following resolutions were
then offered by Cole. L. Blease, a
member of the congregation, and were

Dr. Wolling received the resolu
tions wvith appreciation, and said
that he was anxious that the ehurch
should be left in perfect peace, "and
that nothing should be done,'' he
said, "that should disturb your de
votions. Yet I feel constrained,'' he
said, "to say a few things. I go
with the deep consciousness that I
have done, as near as I knew how.

around seeking a little cheap popu
larit-I have already got honor
enoh-but I did try to please you;

never have a preacher who will more
anxiously desire in his humble way
to please the members and to please
the officers of the church-not be
cause I am subservient, but because
I am a gentleman and a Christian."
Ile said that he had given his best
efforts to the preparation of his ser
mons, and to all the work of his
church, and if his work had fallen
short of what it should be it had not
been for lack of effort on his part.
"I don't know that it is the proper
thing to say,'" he said, "but I feel
constrained to 'say it, that it is not
the Bishop, nor the Presiding Elder,
but your official board, that has cut
Imy work in half." Dr. Wolling said
he wanted this "to soak in."
That is where the rasping started.
Dr. Wolling says that he intended to
say, if he had been allowed to com
plete the sentence, that he believed
the board had been acting for what
they conceived to be for the best in
terests of the church. But he was
not allowed to complete the sentence.
Mr. John H. Wicker, a member of
'Jthe board of sewards, arose and
said that it seemed to him the whole
object of the meeting was to cast re
flections on the board of stewards,
and there was one thing he wanted
to "soak in,'' and that was, (ad
dressing Dr. Wolling, in the pulpit)
"that it was not only for the good
of the congregation, ,but for your
good as well, that we took the iaction
we did." He said that the board
of stewards did not feel that they
had' been appointed by Dr. Wolling
simply to be led blindly by him, but
to do their duty as they saw it, and
that was what they had tried to do.
Mr. W. G. Mayes, another member
of the board of stewards, said that
the board had taken the action it had
taken for the best. interests of the
church, as they saw it, and they had
no apologies to make to any one. He
said that he had- not sought a posi
tioAiO)l the board, and if matters
kept 'on as they were going,- he would
not hold a position on the board
Mr. W. H. Wallace, chairman of
the board, then arose and made a
statement as to the action of the
board: Mr. Wallaee said he had been
a member' of the hurch for a good
many years, and had.never seen any
thing of this Eind in the'ehui-ch be
fore. He went at some length into
the action of the. iboard, which action
he said seemed to them to be for the
good of the church, and he said that
the action of..the board was unani
mous. He said that he felt that the
resolutions which. had ,been passed
tended to reflect 1upon the board,. and
that they had not come from the
bard.~ However, hla said, the ~resolu
tions had not been opposed, but he
thought, the .miatter -ought to have
Soon after Mr. Wicker started
speaking many of Dr. Wolling 's
friends, and especially the ladies, got
up and went out of the church, stand
ing in the vestibule, and at the con
elusion of his remarks some of them
came back in the church, and then
went out again. One of the ladies
came out of the choir and left the
church. It seemed for a while that
the congregation was to be disrupted.
At the conclusion of Mr. Wallsee's
.remarks, Mr. Z. F. Wright moved
that the congregational meeting stand
adjourned, and Dr. Wolling annone
ed that the meeting stood adjourned.
Di-. Wolling goes to A.lleiidale on
Wednesday. He carries with him
the best wishes of the people of New
berry, who will miss him deeply. Dur
ing his pastorate here he has done a
great deal of good, not only in his
own congregation, but among the
people generally, and he has been a
power for good in the- community.
