those in distress. He would often

Though that his religion taught him
to live a clean Christian life and that
God in the end would Tighten every
wrong, and pay each and every man
according to his stewardship here on
earth, and that he was going to be
obedient so that when he was through
with the tumult here on earth that
he could live with Jesus in heaven.
He was a faithful member of St.
John A. M. E. Church for over 30

from his services.

him being a good Christian man of
tho highest type. He told several

A M. E. MINISTERS' ALLIANCE
INVITES GENERAL CONFER
ENCE TO MEET IN NASHVILLE.
The ministers of the A. M. fc.
fimroh nf thl-t oitv. which constitute
the A. M. E. Ministers' Alliance, will
present a formal 'Mvitation to the
General Conference to hold its next
session in this city. This invitation
will be presented to tho General Con
ference Commission which meets in
Louisville, Ky., next Tuesday for the
purpose of hearing petitions ana re
quests, or bids from the different
cities, and to locate the place of the
next session. The committee on In
vitation consists of Drs. J. A. Jones,
A. P. Gray, J. H. Smith, H. L. P.
Jones, J. H. Grant, S. L. Howard and
the following General Officers: Prof.
Ira T. Bryant and Drs. J. C. Cald
well and G. W. Allen. The General
Conference will not meet till May
1920; but this Is a large body of men,
representing the brains and culture
of the A. M. E. denomination. It
consists of men .and women from all
parts of the world, wherever the col
ored race is found in any considerable
The sessions are usually held
through a period of more than three
weeks; hence the presence of such a
body of men during the holding of a
general conference, will mean much
to any community, in many ways.
It Is said that the General Con
ference of the A. M. E. Church has
not held a session In the heart of the
south since 1872. Nashville, with
all its denominations, and civic or
ganizatlons, as well as religious, both
white and colored, will no doubt be
glad to welcome this body ot distin
guished representatives ot the church
to our city.
A committee has also been ap
pointed to look after the matter of
local invitation to this city. Mr.
Ira T. Bryant, Secretary of the S. S.
Union is chairman of this committee.
It is the aim of this committee to
secure letters of endorsement, special
letters of invitation, pledges, etc.,
from influential civic and commer
cial organizations, and from officials
of prominence, both white and col
ored, to present to the Commission.
In fact It seems to be the a-lm of the
ministers of the A. M. E. Church of
the city to make a strong pull to land
the next General Conference in Nashville.
