Preparatory To The Laymen's
Which Is Being Held In The
City On Wednesday
Two Fine Addresses Given
At The Banquet
Telling Scope Of The
Now tho Laymen's Missionary
Movement Convention is on with"
rcat power and interest.
Promptly at tlio appointed hour 7
o'clock Tuesday ovenlng tho conven
tion opened with the singing of "On
ward Christian Soldiers Marching as
to War," by 280 men.
Tho Invocation was said by Dr. O.
A. Rccdor and after a splendid din
ner served by the ladles of tho M. F.
church and a rare concert by tho M.
E. S. S. orchestra, Chairman Litton
mado an announcement or two and
Introduceu Mr. F. L. Falrchild, ono of
Mount Vernon's leading Christian
laymen, who presided and introduced
tho two speakers of tho evening. Mr.
Falrchhd said that it was with no lit
tle pleasuro that ho hailed tho dawn
ing of this new day, when tho gospel
light is breaking into tho darkest cor
ners of tho whole world'. It was fur
ther stated as a matter of no little
pleasuro and Interest that ho noted
tho getting together of tho great
Protestant churches of the world in
the interest of their common Lord's
President J. Knox Montgomery, of
Muskingum College then took up tho
topic and presented the Laymen's
Missionary Movement, National cam
paign. Mr. Montgomery reviowed
the history and development of mis
sionary work and tho Laymen's part
of tho same. In 1806 a small group
of college students held the famous
Haystack prayer meeting and launch
ed the first organized foreign mis
sionary work iu North America. In
1886 the Student Volunteer Movement
was organized taking as their watch
word, tho "ovangellzatlon of the world
In this generation." In 1906 a young
business man conceived tho idea of
getting back of the great body of Stu
dent Volunteers and supporting them
in tho front. This idea was trans
mitted to a largo group of men and
tho samo year tho Laymen's Mission
ary Movement was organized, taking
ao their watch word "Tho Evangel
ization of tho World In this Genera
tion." Since that time tho movement
has boon a success.
Tho campaign carried on in Canada
last year demonstrated that when
business men get back of the church
es, that they have more than doubled
tho missionary contributions of tho
Dominion during tho past twelvo
Mr. Montgomery referred to tho
great conventions and tho hundreds
of smaller gatherings in tho United
States and stated that there has been
more missionary talking and agitation
dono In tho United States during tho
past two years than during all of our
hundred years previous to tho launch
ing of this laymen's movement. In
reforonco to tho great need ho refer
red briefly to the fact that there aro
over 600 millions of people, half of
tho population of tho world today who
have novor oven so much heard that

This means that in tho event of

West Side Public Square
thoro Is a Christ. Ho urged that wo
owo Christ to tho world, and tho
world to Christ, and that tho outlook
for ovangellzlng tho world In this
gonoratlon is bright, and that tho
laymon should npprcclato tho oppor
tunity at hand.
Tho second spoakor was Dr. W. It.
Funk, of Dayton, who with great forco
and by splendid prosonco discussed
'tho topic, "Winning tho World; a
Man's Job." Ho said this movement
Is moving multltudop Is fulfilling pro
phecy, thnt this is tho brightest day
in tho world's history. Tho ulmplo
proposition of Jesus, challenges tho
greatest minds and is that upon which
tho very foundation of llfo depends
and is tho hopo of tho world. Ho
urgod that spreading this gospel Is
tho manliest job of tho church today.
With wonderful powor Mr. Funk told
of tho downward pull of tho nations
that aro without Christ and that Jo
sus is tho only upward llfo and for
this reason tho heathen nations are
not going to rise unless this gospel is
carried to thom. Tho vast task of car
rying tho gospel to tho G2G millions
who aro not yet ovangollzed is a task
so vast as to attract tho strongest
men. In tho face of all this, It was
urged, that wo sit still and hardly so
much as stir ourselves to destroy tho
contending forces of the devil. Ho
told of tho mighty forco of heathen
religions and that nothing short of tho
gospel of Christ would cnablo theso
peoplo to break with their sins and
superstitions. Ho concluded his re
marks by telling from illustrations tho
great forco of tho gospel upon tho
lives of natlvo heathen.
Following this Chairman Litton an
nounced that the day sessions Wed
nesday wero open to overy ono, men
and women, free but that a nominal
chargo of 25c would bo made in tho
ovenlng, to unreglsterea delegates.
Special attention is called to tho
Laymen's Missionary Convention and
tho program for this evening. Tho
committco has arranged to open this
session to adults but to assist in de
fraying tho expenses of tho speakers

that will greatly inspiro to tho possi
bilities of this movement. Dr. Emory
W. Hunt, the splendid president of
Denlson University, will glvo an ad

Challongo to tho Students." Rev. F.

Of Charles Foster By United

At Centerburg On Charge Of
Turned Over To Authorities
For tho past soveral years, the res
idents of tho village of Centerburg
have been In a stato of uncertainty
and dread, owing to tho pretence of a
certain number of peoplo who Inhabit
their town, but now, their minds are
somo what relieved since the United
States revenue officer, Galloway com
pleted his Bovcral days' work in and
about Centerburg Tuesday evening,
and caused tho arrest of Charles Fos
ter, who has for a long time been sus
plcloned of tho chargo of bootlegging.
At one time previous tho marshal of
tho town attempted to arre3t him
when ho and his brother resorted to
violent means In order to prevent the
arrest and as a result tho marshal
was badly beaten and was after that
time, practically helpless. Although
tho merchants of Centerburg have
been anxious to have Foster taken into
custody, they havo been afraid to tes
tify against him for their own person
al safety, but the United States badge
worn by Officer Galloway served to
scaro the man to such a degree that
tho arrest was a simple matter. Ho
was ordered to appear before Mayor
Uest of Centerburg Wednesday morn
ing, nt which time, he was turned over
to tho United States authorities and
taken to Columbus.
