WANTS OF NEEDY HEARD
Rev. J. B. Rutter Makes Plea for the
Church That He Has Built
Every year for 40 years, immediately
after the annual meeting of the Cen
tral Illinois conference of the Meth
odist Episcopal church, the elders and
pillars of the conference have met in
Peoria to attend to three things, name
ly: Church extension affairs of the
conference, domestic missionary so
ciety anil the general work in which
the elders are specially interested and
have to do. That meeting was held
yesterday i. the parlors of the First
Methodist church there.
Dr. Richard Haney was not there.
Neither was Dr. William 11. Hunter.
They have yone the way and are i:i
the b!es;e.l beyond. Others of the old
wheel horses were present. Some havt
been taken higher, and others trans
ferred to other conferences.
Ilnir Wliutw of Needy l'litircli-.
Year after year these good old men
have come together after conference,
to hear the wants of needy churches
and pastors, and they were always ap
pealed to as men of judgment and ex
perience. What Dr. Hunter and Dr.
Haney said about affairs generally
went in the good old days. Old pas
tors of the conference, however, were
at yesterday's meeting.
The elders present were Dr. Richard
Crewes. of the Normal district : Dr.
Wiley, of Rock Island district; Dr. J.
F. Robinson, of Kankakee, and Dr.
Samuel Van Pelt, of the Peoria dis
trict. Dr. Buckey. of the Galesburg
district, was prevented from attending
because of sickness.
Among the ministers present were
Dr. J. Hoffman Batten, Dr. A. M. Stock
ing, Dr. A. K. Tullis, Dr. M. V. B.
White. Dr. O. T. Dwinnell. Dr. J. B.
Dillie, Dr. David Wilson, and Rev. J.
Dr. Dillie presided at the session of
the domestic missionary society and
Dr. Wilson was secretary. This so
ciety has the disbursement of money
raised during the year in the confer
ence jurisdiction. Pastors of weak
charges are aided financially from this
fund. At the meeting yesterday they
made their claims and were allowed as
the board determined.
Dr. dimming presided at the session
of the church extension society, and
Dr. Dwinnell was secretary. This so
ciety has the distribution of funds
raised during the year in the confer
ence, to struggling congregations seek
ing to build churches. The money ap
portioned goes for building purposes.
Rev. Rutter. of Rock Island, made a
plea for the Rock Island church, which
has built a new edifice.

and have a large work. The board of
bishops holds them directly responsi
ble for advance in the conference, and
if the conference falls short of the
mark set up the elders feel the bur
den on their shoulders. It is well to
get together and make things lively ;n
the gool cause. There is no elders'
trust, but the five distinguished and
able gentlemen presiding over the five
districts trust each other.

PROBLEM THAT WILL CONFRONT
VOTER WHEN HE GOES TO POLLS
rOUR QUESTIONS OF PUBLIC POLICY IN ADDITION TO LIST OF NOM
INEES FOR HIM TO EXPRESS HIS PREFERENCE UPON.
The ollicial ballot to be voted at tin.'
coming election in Illinois should be
Weil understood befurc hand so that no
b.Kiiders may be made by the voter.
The campaign is at least quiet enough
for every man to inform himself thor
oughly as to what he wants to do and
how to accomplish it without perad
venture of a mistake.
In tin1 first place when he enters
the voting place he will be handed by
the judges two ballots. One of them
will be the large blanket ballot which
will contain all the names of the can
didates for president and presidential
electors and for state and county ofli
errs. The other will be a little or sep
arate ballot, containing a proposed
amendment to the state constitution
and certain proposed questions of pub
But it is proper to say now that the
duty of each voter will be to firat
mark the large ballot for president and
slate and county oflicers, according to
hi:--, preference, voting a straight ticket
or voting for candidates on two or
more tickets if he prefers.
Having finished the large ballot he
should then open the smaller one and
proceed to express n choice on the
questions there presented. These ques
tions will he four in number for the
state at large as given below, the first
being for the amendment of the con
st it tit ion:
Amending Article IV by adding
then to another section to the number
ed authorizing the general assem
bly to provide by. statute a charter or
scheme of local self-government, for
the city of Chicago.
This is the Chicago charter scheme
about which so much has been said
and which all parties appear to favor.
Two squares giving the voter a chance
to mark "yes" or "no" will be printed
opposite litis proposit ion as all oth
ers. The second is a question of proposed
public policy, as follows:
Shall the? state legislature amend the
primary election law so as to provide
for party primaries ;it which the voter
will vote under the Australian ballot
directlv for the candidate whom he
wishes nominated by his patty?
(Mi this proposition all voters re
gardless of party .should vole "yes."
The next is also a question of public
policy, as follows:
Shall the state legislature pass a
law enabling the voters of any county,
city, village or township, by majority
vote, to veto an undesirable action by
their respective law-making bodies?
Shall the general assembly submit to
proposed public policy, as follows:
The next is likewise a qucslion of
the electors of the state an amendment,
to the constitution which will enable
the voters of any county, city, village
or township to adopt such system of
assessing and levying taxes as the
voters of such local municipality may
