They are mostly born without clothes.

Some achieve good clothing and some

Washington, Oct. 14. The Methodist
Ecumenical conference continued Its ses
sions yesterday, and debated the place of
thejaity and women in the church, two
subjects of much interest at this time.
Before the discussion began a resolution
Wbjch had been referred to the appropri
ate committee advocating the joint action
or Methodist missionary bodies working
in the same fields was reported back fa
vorably, and a committee was appointed
to consider the subject. Then the discus
sion of "The Church and Her Agencies,"
which was begun Monday, was resumed,
Rev. J. Travis, of the Primitive Methodist
church, of England, reading a paper on
the place and power ot laymen in the
church", whi'-h was a plea for the peculiar
views of his own denomination on that
No Distinctions In the Chnrch.
He began by saying the church as found
ed by our Lord and built up by his in
spired apostles, was community of
brethren. They knew of no such dis
tinctions as priests and people, or clergy
and laity. All the members stood in the
same relation to Christ, the one head:
were sanctified by the same spirit, and
had an equal share in all the blessing of
salvation and in all the privileges of the
cnurch. They all belonged to the holy
priesthood to offer up spiritual sacrifices
acceptable to God by Jesus Christ.
Origiu of the Priesthood.
The division of the church into clergy
and laity dates from the second contury.
The question is. What does it mean Is
the difference between the clergy and
lnity organic or only functional one of
order or simply one of office He then
spoke of the Reman Catholic, the An
glican and the Non-Conformist doctrine.
The early Methodists never talked about
"ministers" and "lay preachers," but
"traveling preachers" and "local preach
ers " Methodist ministers are not a sa
cred caste, curtained off from the laity by
mystic powers conveyed in ordination,
but brethren. They are pastors, elders or
bishops invested by the church with cer
tain authority, but they belong to the
common brotherhood of the saints and in
spiritual privileges stand exactly equal
with all the children of God. -.
'' r The Place of Lay Agency.-
Laya8ency has a place in the govern
ment of tha church. Even the apostles,
who held their commission from our
Lord, and who were supernatnrally en
dowed for the special work of founding
the chnrch, seldom acted but in unison
with the laity. The Methodist denomin
ations are agreed that the laity have a
place, but they are far from being agreed
as to extent. He pleaded for the system
atic training of lay preachers. ' A chnrch
which could not, or would not find work
for all who had the heart and the hand of
service was defective. When Christians
are "at it all at it, and always at it," the
salvation of the race will not be far dis
tant. WOMAN'S MISSION IN THE CHURCH.
Radical Views Expressed by a Belfast
The next subject to come up under the
general head of "The Church and Her
Agencies," was that of woman's ork,
and the debate was begun by an essay
from R?v. Benjamin St. J. Fry, of St.
Louis, editor of The Christian Advocate.
He spoke mainly of the important work
there was for women to do in the church,
especially in the foreign mission fieMu,
and concluded his address by bidding
God speed to aU women who work for
Christianity. Professor J. P. Landis, of
Davton. O.. United Brethren in Christ.
Isaid that woman had proved that sLe
cauiu mniuLttiu a uigu position in me
church. Women had more tact in church
work than some of tbe blundering men,
and should be allowed to preach the
A Wish for Women Delegates.
Rev. Thomas Hunt, of England, Primi
tive Methodist church, in addressing tbe
conference said that he wished that there
were women delegates in the conference
as well as men. Women formed a major
ityof the church, and should have impor
tant duties to perform. -The chnrch em
ploys tbem in minor work, but be held
that there is' a higher work for them to
do. Their work for the suffrage and for
temperance had been great, and if tbey
desired to preach tbe gospel, let them, he
said, preach it. Iu the five-minute discus
sions which followed a half dozen dele
gates addressed the conference on the
topic under consideration, most of them
favoring the admission of woman into the
Would Abolish the Pulpit.
Rev. William Gorman, of Belfast, Ire
land, Irish Methodist church, followed
with an address in which he said wom
an's fitness to be man's co-worker in the
church needed no vindication, for. al
though she had been handicapped, she
bad found and filled high places.
Women were kept out of certain councils
of the church where her gifts are most
needed and where her work should be
welcomed. He concluded by saying that
if woman in the pulpit 'was obnoxious it
could be easiiy remedied by taking away
the pulpit and leaving tbe woman.

Kansas City, Oct. 14. The presbyte-
rian synod of Kansas, in session in Kan
sas City, Kan., yesterday passed strong
resolutions concerning Roman Cathol

St. Paul, Oct. 14. The Presbyterian
synod of Minnesota, after a spirited de

will be opened Sundays, which act would
be in violation of the Christian sentiment
and customs of this people, this synod
solemnly protests against sncb a proceed
ings, and if the protests shall go unheeded
will discourage Presbyterians from con
tributing in any way to the success of the
exposition, either by presence or exhibits;
and that in any event the Minnesota com
missioners be requested to close the ex
hibits from this'.state on Sundays.
