M.At wood of Portland, who 6poke very In terestingly on the Interest and enthusiasm of the national convention. Mr, Atwood said there was one thing to be regretted, and that was the meager reports given by the southern press. He said that the prcipeotB for the future growth of the denomination In the South were much brighter than ever before, and that the ereotlon of a church by the Y. P. C. TJ. of the country at Atlanta, Georgia, whlcn was dedicatei at the time of the national convention marked an epooh In the life and history of the denomination. Mrs Olive M Kimball the state super intendent of junior work, was called to the front and In a few well chosen words presented the silk banner purchased by the senior unions of the state to be pre sented to the junior union making the largest per cent of gain in membership during the past year. Mrs, K’mball awarded the banner to the junior union at Lewiston. Mrs. M. Cora Winshlp the superintendent of the Lewiston union, accepted the banner In a brief but appro priate speech of acceptance and assured the convention that the Lewiston juniors would appreciate the banner and strive to retain It another year. The committee on resolutions preeshted the following resolution, which were unanimously adopted: Resolved, That we learn with sorrow of the Illness of Miss Annie H. Stevens, a worker in state and national work, and that we extend to her sympathy, and hope for a speedy recovery. Resolved, That whereas there is a ten dency among the youth of the state to disregard law, and recognizing a move ment has been made for a better enforce ment of all law, therefore be it resolved that the Y. P. G. U. lend its support to the efforts being made to bring about a nlgher standard of morals and tne better enforcement of law. Resolved, That we express our loyalty to the church in general and pledge anew our allegiance to the church and its up building, particularly in this state.

The afternoon session of the convention opened at two o’clock with a song servloe led by Miss Kate G. Knight of Woodfords. The first half hour of the afternoon was devoted to a senior congress, conducted by Rev. H. A. Alarkley of Skowhegan. The topic under consideration was “Ways and Means of Promoting Union Work.” Rev. C. A. Hayden of Augusta spoke on social work and methods of raising money. The method adopted by the Au gusta nnion Is by holding entertain ments, etc. The Bangor union reported having profited largely by a flower sale. A delegate from Dexter spoke on the methods of Christian work in their 1 union. 1 Work in other states was dlsoussed in a ( letter written by Miss Lizzie Greenhalgh of Rockland and read by Rev. E. H. Chapin. ] The report was confined principally to t Massachusstts and spoke of song services j held at the soldiers home, the establish-' ment of iresh air fund, and the supply ing of flowers for hospitals, the distribu tion of literature of the denomination, and the giving of free trolley rides to children of the poor. The question of “Christian Citizen ship” was next considered. A paper on th3 subject written by Kev. Mr. Canfield of Dover, read by Kev. Miss Blanche Wright. The writer brought out the Idea that the union mBmbers can work for law and enforcement. . The young people can unite in asking for the enforcement of law against the gambling saloon and buoket shops, Sunday excursions and Sunday newspapers. The writer sug gested that as good Universallsts they should retrain from reading Sunday papers, and to strive for the better ob servance of Sunday. Kev. C. A. Knickerbocker of Auburn was the next speaker. Kev. Mr. Knicker bocker in his remarks said that the liquor problem cannot be solved in less than a generation. “What can we practically do as young people?” asked the speaker. “We can live righteous lives, strong in Christian thought and aotion. We can't make the world over In a minute,” said Mr. Knickerbocker. “The same mistaken idea has always been held in regard to re form movements, The question is what can we do now. The young people of the unions can do a great deal to strengthen the church. Keforms must come out of indvidual consecration. Young people should not be deprived of the privilege of work in the flower mission, fresh air and other departments, these are all Import ant as they all point In the direction of civic righteousness, and to help build up humanity. “The trouble is that the conscience of the state of Maine is being debauched by hypocrisy which makes a farce of the enforcement of the Maine liquor law. (Applause.) What is needed is individual consecration, which will count for a bet ter Christian and moral character.” Kev. J. F. Khoades of Fairfield, spoke on what to do to gain members for the union. The sum of Mr. Khoades’ remarks were to the effect that the members of the union should have a love for something and somebody and believe thoroughly in it, and in that way something will be ao VUUipiUWOUt At the conclusion of the discussion Mr Louis Anrin Ames of New York, presi-1 dent of the central union, having arrived in the church was escorted to the front of the churoh and introduced to the conven tion, Mr. Ames was greeted by a hearty round of applause, and it was some two minutes before he could secure silence sufficient to allow him to proceed. Mr, Ames spoke very briefly, assuring bis auditors that he had been forty-live hours on the water, having been a passenger on the New York steamer, anohored at Chat ham, Mass, because of the storin, and was glad once again to get on terra firms, Mr. Ames was very happy in his remarks and assure 1 his hearers that he was sorry to disappoint the convention at a time when expected for an address. Rev. W, J Taylor of Lewiston, spoke Ion “Our Duty to Onward” the Young People's Christian Ui*ion paper. Mr. Taylor urged the need of a more loyal support of the denominational paper. Dr, Charles K. Knight oi Bangor read an interesting paper on “Our Young Peoples’ Society; Its value to Us, Our Obligations to It,” The paper of Dr, Knight was very helpful and full of sug gestions, The main thought was that the union Is the nursery of the church and that as individuals its members owed the same allegiance, as to home and native land. The committee on reports of officers recommended that a deeper Interest be takbn in the young people s paper “On ward,” and efforts made to increase its circulation, Several amendments were offered by the committee to the constitution, action on which will be taken at the next an nual meeting whloh is to be held at Rockland. The nominating committee then sub mitted the following report and the offi cers as named were declared eleotea: President—Mr. Harry S. Vose, Water ville, ~7ice President—Mr. Guy Small, Orono, Secretary—Miss Abbie C. Trefethen, Congress Square church, Portland. Treasurer—Mr. Pred S, Rand, Lewis ton. Pxeeutive Committee—Miss Mary Briggs, Auburn; Miss Marion Harlow, Augusta; Mrs, Olive M.Kimball, Turner. Rev. I. J. Mead of Bsston, Mass., ad dressed the delegates briefly, speaking of visits to the New Hampshire Connecti cut, Massachusetts and New York con ventions during the past few weeks. Rev. Mr. Mead spoke very encouraging ly of the work in these states, and said that it gave him a great deal of satisfac tion to once again meet with the young norm In nf MaIba ant.n lnnrn r»f fhnin progress. Adjournment was made at five o’clock. ' In the evening at 7.30 o'clock the ser vices commenced with a song service, fol- 1 lowed by an inspiring sermon by Rev F. ’ E. Barton of Bethel? on convention thoughts and inspirations. i Central President Louis Annin Ames of New York spoke briefly on the aims and ' general work being done by the young people throughout the country. Mr. Ames is a forcible speaker and left a very 1 pleasing impression with his auditors, f The closing of the convention was de- . eoted to a communion service, with Rev. E. H. Chapin of Rockland and Rev. F. I’. Nelson of East Eddington at the i table. The services concluded with the 1 singing of the hymn “God be with you I bill we meet again.” = BOARD OF ALDERMEN. A special meeting of the Mayor and Board of Aldermen was held yesterday v if ter noon to consider three Insane cases. A-idermen Milliken and Moulton were ab- t sent.
