a most hearty welcome to the visi
tors because of the nature eif their
weirk, which was the most honorable
and glorifying ef all duties that of
saving men; because of the field which
they eiceupie-d, it being one of the most
fertile and rich tracts of the entire
country, and with a Metheidist congre
gation of 500,1(00; and because of the
success which marked the last year,
when a greater number were added to
the congregation, more marriages per
formed, less funeral addresses made,
and more sermons de-livered than ever
before. He mentioned the election of
bishops which will occur in May, when

Rev. W. S. Marquis, pastor of the
iroaelway Presbyterian church, feillow-
d as a representative ejf the Presby
terian denomination. Rev. Marquis, in
opening his remarks, mentioned the
fact that erne of the speakers of the
eve-ning. Rev. S. Van Pelt eif Wesley
college-, had taught him e-locution in
his college days. He dwelt slightly
upein the prevailing difference of the
platform of the Metheidist be-lief and
the Calvinism ejf the Presbyterian
faith, the one standing for greatest
freedom of man and the other for all-
towenng supremacy of ueitl. He stated
that the Methodist use of tlie layman
to spread the faith was an admirable
one and that the open air meetings
promoted in chautauepias, camp meet
ings and similar meetings were a bless
ing. He added that tho two belie fs are
gradually mingling and that the ming
ling of the two is necessary for a com
plete Christian church. He mentioneel
the great work of the Wosloys, stating
that Charles Wesley iiael written C.OOO
hymns, amounting to one hymn a day
for 15 years. These hymns of the
Methodist founder are used to a great
extent in the Presbyterian church, and
Calvinistic hymns, he added, have found
their way into tho Methodist churches.
He expressed his gratification at this
mingling of the platforms of the two
great churches, and closed in extend
ing the hearty welcome of the Presby
terians to the delegates.
The next speaker was F. O. Van
Galder, eelitor of the Modern Woodman
who pointed out to the visitors the
points of interest in the community
that might be visitetl and figuratively
applied each of the leical parks as fit
visiting places for ministers of dif
ferent ages. He welcomed the men
from the standpoint of the citizen and
expressed his hope of success in their
Respondingon behalf of the visitingdel
egates, Rev. S:. Van Pelt, formerly prnfes-
sor of elocution at Wesley and now presid
ing elder of the Peoria district, made ap
admirable add.ess. He stated that the
local charge may well feel proud of the
fact that Rock Island was the home of
early Methodists whose name became
known over the entire state. He men
tioned that he had coached Dr. Marquis
in oratory and fitted him for one of the
annual contests of the college. In
speaking of the central conference, he
conference itself, 400 preaching plae:es,
35,000 communicants, and 45,000 aelher
ents. He gave the figures of the en
tire Methodist church, there being 8,
000,000 communicants to the faith and
0,000,000 adherents. A great work had
been elone, he stated, sine-c the; found:
ing eif the conference 50 years ago, but
addt d that net more than two ge nera
lions of self-indulgence in putting pleas
ure above the church would be required
to undo the entire structure.

And you can't get money from
the bank and can't borrow from
a friend, we're a "last resort" in
many cases. But why shouldn't
we be the first resort?
Banks don't care to 'loan small
amounts, and where they do you
place yourself under a lasting ob
ligation to the friend who en
dorses the note for you; an obli
gation which you may pay dear
ly for at another time. And the
"friend" who would loan you the
money "with pleasure," only h
happens to be short now himself.
