A LITTLE HISTORY.
At the session of the Georgia Confer
ence held in Americus In 1866 the State
was divided into two Conierences, the
lice running east and west, making tbe
North and South Georgia Conferences ol
to-day. The Southern Conference wasor
ganized In the Sunday school room ol
Trinity Church. Savannah, on Dec. 11,
1867, with the late Bisuop G. F. Pierce in
the chair, and the late Rev. J. Blakely
Smith as Secretary. It consisted of 102
ministerial apd 28 lay members.
The machinery of the new Conference
was put into operation successfully, and
the members went forth to their appoint
ments with consecrated hearts ana hope
ful minds, determined to succeed. One
Of tue peculiar features of that session
was the appointment o! a number of col
ored preachers to lake charge of the col
ored people belonging still to the South
ern Methodist Church. There were
eighteen charges under their supervision.
Since then the Methodist Episcopal
Church South set up these colored people
Into an organization of their own, with
Bishops ot their own color, under the
name ol the Colored Methodist Episcopal
Church in America.
There has been a marked improvement
all along the line since that day. The
number of members reported at the first
session was 17 626. Last year there were
reported 39,293. At tbe Conference, 1867,
the collections lor domestic missionary
purposes were as follows:
Savannah district } 646 18
Macon district 68 55
Columbus district 55 60
Lumpkin district 108 96
Americus di-trict 733 1'
Bainbriuge district 75 93
Brunswick district 145 oo
Total $3,330 23
In 1885 the whole amount collected lor
home missions was $4,453 22. In Savan
nah district, sl,lll 35; Macon district,
$1,103 70, where the greatest gains were
There has been greater advancement in
foreign missionary sentiment than in any
other particular field.
Savannah district $ 20 50
Macon distriot 12 0 •
Columbus district 30 00
Ameiicus district 174 85
And in all of the other districts onlv
$lO3 15, making the total lor the entire
conference SB4O 00.
In 1885 the total collections for Foreign
Missions amounted to $7,221 28, tbe Sa
vannah distriot contributing of this
amount $1,886 95, against S2O 50 in 1886.
TWELVE DIFFERENT BISHOPS.
At these twenty sessions there have
been twelve different Bishops in the chair,
but only three different secretaries.
There have died during that time tortv
three members, almost one-half of the
original number composing the Confer
ence. Only one has died during the past
year, Rev. R. M. Lockwood, well known
In Savannah. He was compelled two
years ago to retire from active work be
cause of failing health. He was a true
man and a faithful minister. Memorial
services will be held by the Conference
during tbe session.
Bishop Hendrix comes as anew man
to Georgia, but is well known in the
West lor his scholarly attainments and
devoted piety. He was elected Bishop at
the !aie session of the General Conference
at Richmond last May. He has been cor
dially received, aud will no doubt win the
affections ol all beiore the olose of the
As there aro no perplexing problems to
aclve or to discuss we look lor a pleasant

In his argument to-mgbt before the

the Macon men in charge of the enter

erty lor which he has refused $250,-
000, which pays him annually
$40,000. He said be referred to Mr. La

ment was correct. Mr. Lamar stated to

erty is $40,000.

ALEXANDER PAYING BIG MONEY.
The News correspondent learns front
a reliable source that the Alexander
people are paying much higher for Cen
tral stock than the nominal market quo
tation, which they naturally want to
keep down. A gentleman has received a
letter from a large holder stating thatthe
Alexander people have backed him to put
a price on it. He bas named 150, anu he
is satisfied that he will get it. From the
same source it is learned that another
large holder has sold to them at
a price considerably above the
market, under pledge to keep the figure
secret. If these facts are true and the
Alexander crowd are paying such figures
it is important that tbe public be inform
ed so that holders ot shares can get the
price that is being paid and that the stock
A BIG DEAL.
Gould to Trade tlie Wabash Hoad
for the It.and O. Telegraph Line.
Atlanta, Ga„ Doc. B.—The Southern
industrial journal, Dixie, has a special
dispatch trorn a staff correspondent at
Fort Worth, Tex., which says: “One of
the largest and most important transac
tions ever recorded is now on foot. It is
nothing less than a trade between Jay
Gould and President Garrett, of tbe Bal
timore and Ohio, whereby the entire Bal
timore and Ohio telegraph system is to be
transferred to Gould, who now practically
owns the Western Union. In return for
the same President Garrett ia to receive
the Wabash system, thus giving the Bal
timore and Ohio a line lo Kansas City
from Baltimore. The magnitude
of a deal of this kind can
scarcely be understood, but it is
known to tbe officials of the Gould sys
tem here that the Baltimore aud Ohio
have long been seeking to extend their
operations west of tbe Mississippi river.
The information is believed to be thor
oughly reliable, as it is said to be sub
stantiated by memoranda made by the
late H. M. H’oxie prior to his dentil atul
found among certain papers that, bad been
laid away for tuture reference. The secret
leaked out through a party who desired
to arrange with Fort Worth capitalists to
operate In Western Union and Baltimore
and Ohio stocks as soon as there was any
indication that the bargain bad been con
western union rasses a dividend.
New York, Dec. B.— At the regular
quarterly meeting to-day the Western
Union directors voted to pass the quar
terly dividend for the current quarter.
Mr. Gould denies that there is any truth
whatever in the atorv of his alleged deal
with Mr. Garrett, of the Baltimore and
Ohio railroad, as to an exchange of tbe
Wabash railroad system for the Haiti
more aud Ohio telegraph system.
THE RUMOR RIDICULED.
Baltimore, Deo. B.—Tbe Baltimore
and Ohio railroad directors to-day re
elected Robert Garrett President.
Dr. Barnard, assistant to President
Garrett, was called upon this afternoon
In relation to the dispatch Irom Atlanta,
Ga., regarding the rumored contemplated
connections of that read in the South, and
he said that was tne first he had heard ol
it. While he would make no reply, be
said to the interviewer: -‘1 will simply
laugh you out of the oilice.” Other offi
cials of the Baltimore aud Ohio declated
that there was nothing in it.

Tallahassee, Fla., Dec. B.—An unu
sttaliy cold spell has been experienced in
this seotion during the past tew days,
and lor tbo first time in a uumber of years

great injury has been done to the orange
trees, or to the hardier vegetables and
flowers. For two months past it bus bteu
very dry, and, as a consequence, vegeta

it less liable to serious damage by severe
cold than would be the case if the ground
