Meeting Last Night.
Yesterday morning's meeting ot the
Christian Endeavor convention took
place In the chapel of St. Mark'?, which
was comfortably Oiled with delegates,
and Beveral ministers from the city
churches were present. Aftor prayer
by D. S. Bennett, of Richmond, the
following committees were announced.
On Credentials?Paul Pratt, of Rich?
mond, and 11 ? A. Glllis, of Roanoko.

of Richmond; Rov. J. W. Norrie, of

Devotional Committee?W. R. Moore
and B. M. Gordon.
Rov. C. A. Miller, of Salem, boing
present, waB invited to take his seat as
a vice-president of tho society.
President Hundley then made a most
interesting report, which was listened
to with cloBe attention. In the course
of his address the Bpoaker made several
admirablo suggestions for the benefit of
the local societies. Be thought that
the looal presidents should have regular
meetings of their committees, which do
not meet often enough. "We should
feel," said he, "that our society is re?
sponsible for a special work, and if wo
do not do it it will bo loft undone The
CbriBtain Endeavor supplies a great
want in actively organizing young
people for active work for Christ and in
tho study of tho Word of Gcd every
day. The Christian Endeavor teaches
that we should havo pure hearts, clean

Mr. Bundley recommended the pub?
lication of a State organ, similar to the
"Golden Rule." Be closed with a glow
ing tribute to President Clarke.
Secretary Meacham, of the Y. M. C.
A., in a short speech gave all the En~
deavorers a cordial Invitation to visit
the rooms on Kirk avenue, and also
asked those present to be prompt in at?
tending tho afternoon prayer and praise
meeting which he would conduct.
Paul Pratt, State secretary, next
made his report, which was full of
factB and very explicit. He stated
that the executive committee at Staun?
ten last January recommended ohanges
in the State work, tho first being that
the convention should meet in Sept?
ember, but this was afterwards found
inexpedient and November was sub?
The second change was the re dis?
tricting the State for better work, and
it bad been divided into six districts,
viz: Alexandria, Norfolk, Riobmond,
Danville, Staunton and Roanoke. At
that time they thought tho publication
of a State paper inadvisable, but it was
hoped that this convention would tako
Borne Bteps toward this.
Altogether the Endeavorors' work of
tho past year has been very encourag?
ing, for although some twenty or thirty
societies from the M. E. Church, South,
had withdrawn on account of the Ep
worth League, there were now in the
State 155 Booleties in organization with
a membership of G.20O, or an average of
forty members to a society.
Mr. Pratt's report was decidedly in?
teresting and was followed by report of
Robert Leckle, Jr., the treasurer, which
naturally dealt with figures only. Un?
der the head of "Roll Call of Sooletles"
reports were made by the delegates pres?
ent from a large number of the En?
deavor societies of the State. Most of
tbeeo, especially those from Staunton,
were very encouraging and interesting.
At 12 o'olock the president requested
any other delegates having reports to
make to hand them in writing to the
secretary. Be then introduced to the
meeting Rev. D. C. Rankin, of Nashville,
Tonn., and Rev. Peter Ainslle, of Rich?
mond, who were received by the dele?
gates with the Chautauqua salute.
After this a most pleasing and enter?
taining talk upon the Boston and W&Bh
ington conventions was delivered by
Rev. Peter Ainalie, at the close of which
the convention adjourned until after?
noon when the following programme was
At the afternoon session & prayer and
praiao service was conducted by H S.
Meaoham, secretary of the Y. M. C. A.
at 2 o'clock. The meeting was well at?
tended for an afternoon service and the
entire session was characterized by
much interest being manifested.
At 3:15 p. m. Rev. Peter Ainslle, of
Calhoun Christian Church, Baltimore,
delivered a most powerful and Impres?
sive address upon "The Proper Bring?
ing Up of Children." The remarks
were addressed to the mothers and
He Bald in part that the lack of
family prayers at our homes was one
great drawback to children growing
up. He once addressed 400 children
and asked those who had heard thoir
mothers pray to stand up. Some four
fifths of the assembly responded. "How
many have heard their father pray?"
Tho question was responded to by one
fourth of those present. "How many
have family prayers at home?" and
only eleven responded.
"My Christian friends," the speaker
continued, "inch neglect is unpardon?
Tho speaker gave a graphic illustra?
tion to the effect that he had tried to
grow a tree in his back yard, and had
irlod repeatedly without success. He
finally mattered the trouble by ascer?
taining that the trei be planted waa
too large and too far advanced. We
muat plint a amall young tree If we ex?
pect to get good result*, So It is with
the rala.ng of children. Take them in
the bud, at their tendierest years. The
speaker dwelt upon thla all-important
Bubject, and although he waa down upon
tbe programme for an address exclu?
sively to the children, this extempo
raneoua effort waa largely enjoyed by
the large crowd of adulta present. This
1b Mr. Ainalle's first vial* to our olty,
and the good impresBlon made upon hla
audlonoe was instantaneoua. He la a
fluent, easy speaker, and regret waa
freely expressed that he will be unable
to spend Sunday in Roanoko. Mr. Alns
lie is in oharge of one of tho most pros?
perous Disciple churches in Baltimore,
and left last night on tbe late train to
fill his pulpit in that city to-day.
Papers on committee work waa the
best number on the programme. Rev.
Mr. Hatcher, of Lexiogton, read a
paper by R. W. Wiles, of Richmond,
upon "Tbe Lookout Committee Work."
A paper upon "Duties of the l'rajer
Meeting Committee" by W. A.Crenshaw,
of Richmond, was read by T. W. Davis.
It being Impossible for Miss Annie
Forsberg, of Lynchbure, to be present
to read her paper upon "Social Com?
mittee Work," her placa was mo3t ac?
ceptably filled by Miss Apporson, of
Missionary work was then handled
in a masterly manner by D. S. Bennett,
of Richmond. His report showed a
most prosperous state of affairs, and
ere the speaker finished his report it
was plain that the missionary commit?
tee are not sleeping, but doing a grand
work in carrying tho Gospel light to
the dark countries of our land.
A paper upon "Junior Work," by Mies
Alice Budd, of Richmond, was presented
by Paul Pratt. It sot forth the mag?
nificent possibilities ot the juniors to
make tbe future of these little ones
tcrand and tbeir lives Bublime.
The hour from 4:15 till adjournment
of afternoon session was taken up with
an open parliament conducted by D. S.
Bennett, of Richmond, and a vast deal
of valuable information was exchanged.
Questions were aaked as to the best
method of obtaining the best work from
the various committees. Tho novelty
of the idoa was oojoyed by all present.
Tho committee on resolutions re?
ported, but on motion was continued till
tho night session.
The nominating committee reported
tho olllcora for tho succeeding year as
follows: President, J. R. Oollingwood,
of this city; first vice-president, Rov.
Wm. Cummings, ot Staunton; second
viceapresident, Rev. A. B. Warfield, ot
Lynchburg; third vice-president, Rev.
0. Armand Miller, of Salem; secretary,
H. M. Lewis, of Staunton; treasurer,

Hundley, of Richmond; W. R Moore,
of Roanoke; Rev- L. G. M. Miller, of
Roanoke; Rev. J. D. Dunovan, of
Staunton, and W. R Kennedy, of Lex?
ington. The report was adopted.
The music of the convention has been
no small feature, and Prof. Ranm?ssen
has sincere cause for congratulation.
The soloistB, MlsBes Leila Saunders,
Minnie Lambert and Katie Fahneatock,
deaerve special mention. Miss Lam?
bert's rendition of the solo in the beau?
tiful hymn, "Keep Step With the Mas
tor," was faultlessly executed, as was
Miss SaunderB' "Sweet Peace the Gift
of Cod's Son," and Miss Fahnestock's
"Onward, Christian Soldiers.-' "Roanoke
should feel proud of her musical talent.
The session waa called to order af tre
pong service by State Secretary Paul
Pratt, and Rev. Peter Ainslie, of Balti?
more, addressed the convention upon
"Christian Manhood." Mr. Ainslie's ad?
dress was In keeping with his usual
happy style. He touched upon the
Christian Endeavor pledge. The pledge
is the backbone of the Eadeavorors.
Mr. Ainslie deplored the prevailing ig?
norance of the Bible and cited general
amusing incidents to Illustrate how Ig?
norant some are along this line. He
said that the Christian Endeavor pledge
demanded the reading of the Bible
every day. Not to read at haphazard;
not to mark where we left off to day in
order to know where to begin to-mor?
row, but to dig deep and extract the
The speaker referred to a dark
cloud that hangs over our fair land,
the 1 quor question. His illustrations
of the dire effects of wine were touch?
ing in the extreme, and his hearers
were hold spell-bound during their re?
cital. "We want men," he said, "not to
only talk prohibition, but vote for it.
God grant that these Christian En
deavorera may bo loyal to thla ques?
tion, which means loyalty to God." The
speaker then dlreoted his remarks
upon Church Union. His addresB was
listened to wl'h unmarked attention.
The whole audience then arose and
sang, "Throw Out tbe Life Line."
I J. A. Spenoer, of Manchester then ad?
dressed the meeting. He spoke of tbe
great spiritual feast that had been en?
joyed during the convention. He said,
however, that the beat thing was to
I oome, "Not a collection," but an offer

The president announced the follow?
ing committee upon the publication of
I full reports of the convention: Messrs.

j Collingwood and D. S. Bennett.
Rev. Ira Landreth, of Nashville, was

BRITISH CHANGE OF FRONT
The Gunboats Will Not Force
Ordering the Gunboats Baek to Salontc*?
Kegarded as ?British Backdiwri After
?o Much War Talk?The Sultan's Ob?
stinacy Believed to be Bneonragementt
From one or More of the Powers.
Copyrighted 1805 by t. A. P.
Constantinople, Nov. 30.?Aftor all
the war-like talk yesterday tho British
ambassador, Sir Phillip Uurrie, backed
down and the sultan and his advisors
triumphed. The British gunboat, which
was ordered from Salonica yesterday
with Sir Mitchel Culme with tho request,
of Sir Philip Currie to proceed, has been
ordered baak to Salonica.
This is to the diplomatic corps quite
an unexpected denoument of a situa?
tion which bad assumed great and dan
gerouB proportions, and the opinion is
that tho powers have been placed In a
somewhat rediculous position. Follow?
ing tho repoated threats of forcing the
passago of the Dardanelles If the sultan
persisted in refusing to allow the extra
gunboats to enter the Bosphorus, this
looks very much as if Abdul Hamid and
his advisers were well Informed when
they persisted in holding out against
the demands of the represontatlves of
Great Britlan, Russia, Italy and Austria.
There was some delay, as stated in
those dispatches yesterday, In obeying
tho message from Lord Salisbury, and.
the news spread among the Turkish
army that Groat Britain would assist
thorn in restoring order and the guard
shiD question would not be carried out.
This seoms to be the outward aspect,
but behind all this is the faot, it has
been established, that the palace people
have been, for some time past, excit?
ing tho Mussulman population here
with hints that the powers' request for
extra guardshlps meant nothing more
than a naval demonstration before
Constantinople, and that would be an
Insult to the sultan and Mussulmans
throughout the world.
Tho entering of the guardshlps was to
be a signal for the outbreak, and this Is
supposed to bo the cause ot Great
Britain's refusal to insist on the intro?
duction of the extra guardboat. But it
Is claimed in diplomatic circles that this
does not end the incident, and it 1b only
a temporary withdrawal, which will be
followed up at a more opportune mo?
There is another feature of the affair
which should not be lost sight of here,
and that is the withdrawal of the Dryad
may mean that European concert Is
broken and that the jealousies of the
powers have been too Btrong to allow
the introduotlou of tho gunboats. But
It seems nobody hero believes that more
