The annual meeting of the Bock

at tbe Central Presbyterian church
last evening. There was a good at
tendance notwithstanding the in
clement weather. Rev. T. R. John
ston, of Edgingtoo, president of the
society, was unavoidably absent,
and Rev. Ira V. Allen, pastor of the
Central church, was selected to pre

and J. P. Bailey, treasurer, made

on nominations suggested the follow

they were unanimously elected by

The customarv address before the
society was delivered by Rev. C. O.
McCulloch, of the First Methodist
church, who took his text from Sec.
ond Thessalonians, III chapter, 1st
verse, "Finally Brethren, Pray for
us, mat tne wora oi the L,ora May
be Glorified." He said that when
God composed the gospel it was not
His intention that it should be sub'
tracted from or added to. He had
not delegated any one to introduce
fads or fancies in connection with
the gospel. Manv reformations are
necessary in human society today.
said the speaker, and God's manner
of bettering conditions is the salva
tion of society through the indi
vidual. Rev. McCulloch then spake
oi tne power tioa baa given ns in
inventive genius, having conceived
and constructed devices which it
would seem were beyond human com
prehension. Yet, he said, there are
many things that cannot be seen or
understood. They are beyond human
power. It is tbe spirit of God that
reveals to us that which is beyond
tne sight oi the keenest eye; beyond
comprehension of the broadest mind.
It is the purpose of God, in dealing
wun the soul, that there should be
war before peace; the wound should
precede the healing. We should
make up our minds that we are not
here on an excursion, or for pleas
ure. It is the word of the living
God the bloodless sword of the holy
spirit that is to conquer the king
doms of the world, and lay them at
tne ieet oi our uora.
Rev. McCulloch told of a man who
came into the study of a minister
who had just made a vigorous ser
'Did you mean that sermon for
mer" he asked.
"Did it fit your caie?" answered
The man replied that it did. Then
the minister said the sermon was
meant for him.
God never told a man to eo out in
the world to defend him, continued
the speaker. It is like the lion in
the cage; you open the cage and the
lion win aeiena himself. We are
only here as witnesses of God's gos
pel; to see now tne meaicme works
in remedying tne disease sin. God
designed that His gospel shall be the
light of the world.
In conclusion Rev. McCulloch
made a strong plea for the circulation
of the bible, which can ba procured
at such a nominal price that no one
should be without it. Rev. w. S.
Marquis, of the Broadwav church.

pronounced tbe benediction.

Republicans have been indus

Albert D. Huesing, democratic can

lower wards in his own behalf. Mr.
Huesing, on learning of these re

had not attempted to elevate him
self to the disadvantage of anyone
else on the ticket, and he desired it
announced to his friends that he
wished to stand purely on his merits
and that he wanted no votes from
any of them or through them that
would involve bad faith to any other
nominees. He is as much interested,
he said, in the success of all candi
dates as he is in his own, and does
not solicit a vote where to win it
one must be taken from another
democratic candidate. "The trouble
is the entire republican ticket is
beaten." said Mr. Huesing. "and if
they cannot take their remorse with
better grace than they are, they had
better keep out of politics. We are
simply standing on our merits be
fore the people and seek to win on
that score or not at all."
The reports which are being spread
to do Mr. Huesing injury and wrong
