A citizen exienslvely intent-ted in
the movement made the suggestion last

sequent meeting be held, when a vote
s-hall be taken, all entering into an
sigreement in advance that the name
having the highest number of votes
fhall be adopted, and that then the
council be petitioned to change th
name to the one favored.

All the news all the time The. Atxm
Yesterday the Argus received from
a man residing in a small Illinois
town, a registered letter stating that
the wiiter is to preach at noon eaci
day of the conference of the Central
district of the Methodist churc'i,
Sept. 11 to 10, in this city. Accom
panying the letter is a colored dia
gram of a banner referring to which
the writer says, "A prophet will be iu
your midst by the hand of God Al
mighty, with a white silk flag." In
the letter the man, who styles him
self an "ordaned" evangelist, mentions
his subjects, and in one part refers
to July 4, 1907.
Wrote to IlOHlon.
Dr. R. B. Williams, pastor of the
First Methodist church, where the con
ference will be held, states that he
has received a long letter from the
same man, and informing him of the
coming of this propnet. He covers
several pages of the letter to Dr. Wil
liams telling of what a mighty evan
gelist he is and his powers of preach
ing. Dr. Williams informs The Argns
that no one will be allowed to preacl
at tho church during the conference
except a regularly ordained minister
in charge of some church. He is of
the opinion that the author of the let
ters is a religions fanatic.
