THINKS IDEA AN ABSURD ONE
Three Local Men Said to Have Ap
plied for Peoria Posi
tion. "There is only one church of the
Christian denomination in the city of
Rock Island, and I am the pastor,'
said Rev. O. W. Lawrence, pastor of
Memorial Christian church this morn
ing in discussing the statement that
there were three applicants from Rock
Island for the pastorate at Peoria in
which the one accepted must possess
a variety of talents such as are rare
ly to be found In a mortal of the cloth.
"I want to assure you." Mr. Law
rence continued, "that I have not made
a bid for the place. I would not take
such an appointment if it were tender
ed me. much less enter into competi
tion for it. It shows a radical de
parture from the requirements of a
pastor as the church should look upon
them, and I fear that the Peoria con
gregation will not meet with the suc
cess that apparently it anticipates In
this stroke of enterprise, and I might
add sensationalism. Sincerely I think
the idea absurd."
Three Iloek Ioliailrrn Apply.
Ministers who believe themselves
able to classify under the category ot
"crank,' "mixer," "lodge man," and
"evangelist," have begun to pour in
their applications for the pastorate of
the Central Christian church of Peo
ria. Three Rock Island ministers are

Sunday night at an open meeting of
the church membership the question
of filling the place to be vacated by
th? Rev. G. B. Van Arsdall, who
leaves soon for Des Moines, Iowa,
was discussed freely, with the result
that the committee was given a list
of qualilications such as they desired
their new pastor to conform to.
The chairman of the committee ap
pointed to employ a new preacher,
scon began receiving letters from dif
ferent cities in the country, from min
isters applying for the position as
her-d of the church. On each succeed

essary to choice was printed were en

Kewanee, 111.: Sommerwell, Mass.;

The unusual, and yet unique capa

have a desire to change their location.
