call to the pastorate of Grace church at
Portland, Ore., be will depart for bis new
field on the 21st and preach his first ser
mon to his new congregation on the 27th.
Tenflays ag. Mr. Gie received a letter
from Bishop J. N. F.tzjerult, of Minne
apolis, dated at Portland and asking him
if he would accept the pastors: of Grace
church, that city. After giving the offer
dne consideration, Mr Gue replied by
telegraph that be would accept, providing
his moving expenses were paid. Wednes
day night came a rp'y by mtil that Fuch
expenses would be cheerfully met by tbe
church and hoping thit he woald arrange
to be in Portland as soon as possible, ard
expressing gratification at his acceptance
of the call. Mr. Gue also received a let
ter from the presiding eM-r of the dis
trict tv rTnm-ng Sf n ti" rie-v charge.
Yesterday Mr. Gue iufuraaui the in em
bers of the iflicial board of the Firbt
church here of his determination, and he
will preach bis farewell on tbe 20h and
leave with his family the following day
for the west. His son John will return to
Washington, his elder son, D Arthur
Gue having already gone back to Detroit.
Rev. Gue will have completed ex-tcily
four years in the pastorate of the First M
E. church when be leaves, coming here
from Pecria, and the churek had already
adopted resolutions praying the Central,
Illinois conference, which meets in Moliae
on the 9th, to return him fcr another
year. He is very much -beloved by his
congregation and has proven himself a
tireless worker in the causa of his church.
It was wholly through his exertiens and
toil that the beautiful $10 0J0 edifice of
the First M. E. ch'treh al tin corner of
Fifth aveuue and Nineteenth was erected,
having been built during his ministry, the
cost of which has been fully met or pro
vided fnr. He has also taken a promi
nent cart in public affairs and particaUrly
in G. A. R. matters.
The cbwrch to which he g.vs is one ef
the most nourishing on tbe Pac:fie coast
and ts comparatively new. He is to re
ceive a salary of (2 500.
"It is tbe hardest thing I ever did in
my life to leave Rock Island," Mr. G uc
said this morning, "and I tell you , it has
taken considerable of a struggle to arrive
at the determination I have, and I almost
wish I hadn't done it. I never lived ia a
place I liked as well, or among people to
whom I have become so strongly attach
ed. I have become very ranch interested
in Rock Island's advancement, too, and
it seems just as if I must leave now on
the birth of a new era in tbe history of
Rock Island and its twin city, Moline.
But I have come to this conclusion from
a sense of duty. I could only remain in
Rock Island one more year anyway, and
all things considered I have made up my
mind to accept the call to Portland."
