Methodists Do Not Want a Unl
Tersity in Toyeka.
The educational committee of the
Kansas conference and the South Kan
sas conference of Methodists which met
in Kansas City yesterday, decided to
recommend that a Methodist university
be not located at Topeka. Tiha decision
of the commission does not alter the
situation materially, however.
The meeting was held at the Grand
Avenue M. E. church, in Kansas City,
Mo., and the resolution reads as fol
lows: "Resolved, That we will not consider
any further the proposition to establish
a university at Topeka, or elsewhere, un
der the auspices of the Methodist Epis
copal church, and that we further de
clare our determination to support Ra
ker university ana her future interests
at Baldwin, Kas."
Those who composed the commission
were Revs. J. A. Motter, Kansas Citv;
S. A. Bright, IX U., Junction City; 1-1.
Combie Smith, Leavenworth; S. S. Mur
phy, t. r Baldwin; C. D. Duherow,
Ottawa; C. S. Nusbaum, Ottawa, and A.
R. McLean, Independence; Judge Nelson
Case, Oswego: J. M. Miller, Council
Grove: R. N. Allen, C'hanute; J. E. Hair,
Baldwin; J. P. Ia.vls, Topeka, and C.
D. Walker, Atchison. President Murlin,
of Baker university; Dr. William Mc
Dowell, of New York, secretary of the
board of education of the Methodist
Episcopal church; Dr. A, S. Embree and
Rev. J. R. Madison, of Topeka, and Rev.
J. W. Alderman, D. D., of Kansas City,
Kas., were in attendance.
Dr. A. S. Embree, one of the trustees
named by Mrs. Eliza Chrisman to have
charge of the fund to establish a uni
versity, said today that the action of the
committee will make no difference. "The
terms of the will of Mrs. Chrisman will
be carried out to the letter." said he.
Congressman J. M. Miller, of Council
Grove, was a member of the conference
committee that met at Kansas City yes
terday and decided not to further con
sider the removal of Baker university
from Baldwin to TopcKa,
"The resolution that we passed to re
tain and sustain Baker university where
it now is was passed by almostva. unan
imous vote." said Congressman Miller.
The board of conference consisted of
fifteen delegates appointed by the Kan
sas conference and the Southern Kan
sas conference. We concluded it was
for the best of the educational interests
of Methodism. To place a. Methodist
university in Topeka and have it com
pete favorablv with other institutions
of its class would cost a million dollars.
"I believe it is better for a school to
be located in a small town than In a
large city. Look at Baker and at Beth
any, at Lindsborsr. They have lartrer at
tendance by far than similar institutions
in Topeka, Atchison end Winfleld. The
small town is deeidediy the best place
for a successful school."
"Is the Chrisman leeacy lost to the
Methodists by the failure to place a col
leerS in Topeka?" was asked.
T do not think so. It will rot be
available for ten years, but at the ex
piration of that time the lepcaoy ges to
