BOARD OF MISSIONS.
IEETINGS HELD EACH DAY DURING
SESSION OF CONFERENCE.
tepresentations From Presiding Elders
!Heard Yesterday-Several Recom
mendations of Interest to Be
Made to Conference De..
Much of the Conference, just as in
11 large deliberative bodies, is done
utside of the Conference through
oards and committees.
One of the most important boards of
Ze Conference is the Board of Missions.
t meets before the Conference and is
i daily session throughout Conference
rd frequently meets after the work of
ie Conference has been finished.
This board held two meetings yester
iy, and heard representations from
ie Presiding Elders concerning domes
c missions in several districts. The
)ard is charged with entering on new
ork and arranging new charges.
Just now the board is interested in
ie centres of the mill districts where
rere is great and urgent demand for
,lp. The efforts to help in these dis
icts are to some extent handicapped
r the fact that the mill districts are
rgely filled by people moving from
te country charges and thus the coun- I
y charges are weakened and need
lp also, and are asking for it from
e mission board.
This board annually appropriates
out $19,000 to the work of domestic
issions in South Carolina, and at the 1
eeting yesterday fixed the appropria
)ns for the Charleston District, the
rangeburg District, the Rock Hill
istrict and the Sumter District, the
ipropriations remaining practically the
me as last year.
Considerable advance is asked for in
e Columbia District on account of the
:rk at Winnsboro and North Augusta.
