of the Methodist Episcopal Church
South, met Oct. 28, in the West End
church, Nashville, and closed Nov.

presided. He is regarded as one of
the ablest preachers in the South.
Very large congregations of resident
people and visitors attended all of
the sessions of the conference and
manifested much interest in the pro
ceedings. In marked contrast with
tho lait conference at Pulaski, this

Sudie Harwell, J. E. Jones, W. L.
Swann and J. W. Irwin. Pastor
Curry says that he was very proud of
lis delegation. There were about
three hundred regular delegates to
the conference, two hundred travel
og preachers and ono hundred lay
delegates and members of standing
boards. The territory of this confer
ence is Middle Tennessee, West Ten
nessee and East Tennessee each
have a conference about the same
size. From the reports great results
have been accomplished during the
past year in the conversion of souls,
the building of churches and in the
missionary movements of the church.
Our fellow townsman, Capt. J. W.
rwiu, is au influential laymen in the
conference, being ajnember of the
Sunday School Board. On Tuesday

work with increasing enthusiasm
and intelligent devotion. The next
