NASHVILLE, TENN., FRIDAY. MARCH 6. 1908.
declining to entertain the Convention
was on account of the failing health
of the pastor of the Abyssinia Bap
tist Church, who is Rev. Chas. S. Mor
ris, D. D., who worked so hard to cap
ture the meeting; hut this rumor has
not bren verified. The various Boards
connected with the National Baptist
Convention will noi doubt have an
early meeting, possibly in Nashville to
decide on this imnortant Question.
The Nashville ministers are pushing,
and It is likely that Nashville win De
a strons: candidate in the race, to have
the coming session, notwithstanding
the State Convention and several As
sociations will meet in the city this
vear. All or these meetings are dif
ferent, and nosslblv more burdensome
