Growth oi Church During Rev. J. J. Hurt’s Pastorate Demands New House of Worship. A committee of ten members was appointed at the Baptist church yesterday morning to con sider the cost of remodeling the present church house, the cost of constructing a new building, the question of a new site and the means of raising money. This committee consists of Col. G. W. Bruce, E. W. Rogers, J. Haydon, W. W. Rivers, J. Frank Jones, W. B. Clayton, O. O. Florence, W. R. James, Eri Livingston and Charley Deal. The committee met at the pastor’s home yesterday af ternoon and framed their recom mendations to the church, which will be presented to the church at the next regular business meeting. It is understood that they will rec ommend the construction of a new building, but further than this no particulars would be given out un til the report of the committee has been presented to the church. Pastor Hurt said this morning that the committee was in session two hours and talked freely upon every phase of the question, and the committee was unanimous in every recommendation. ‘‘It is recognized by all of us, said he, “that our church is very weak financially, and that we must sac rifice to the limit in order to erect a church house adequate to our needs, but our people seem ready and anxious to go under the load. Our Sunday school has outgrown our quarters. Three years ago when I came here we had 84 in Sunday school. Yesterday morn ing we had 204 present, aud we could get many others if we had proper accommodations. Th : lit tle Sunbeam Band had 28 present yesterday afternoon, aud cveu the liale folks are enthusiastic over a new building.” Mr. Hurt says he has talked with a number of friends in Con way who are not members of his church, and that without a single exception they have agreed to help in the enterprise. He says it is this spirit of co-operation and fraternity that makes Conway the greatest town on eaith. It is known that at the Baptist convention in Fayetteville last week a gentle man spent the good portion of a n ght urging the Conway pastor to consider a work which would pay him twice the salary he gets here, but Mr. Hurt says he declined to consider it seriously. He says it is his purpose to build a good Bap Twenty Thousand Votes for Miss Shaw Comparatively Small Vote Cast tor All Other Candidates—Miss Minnie Garter Again Leads in District No. 2.

Editor Log Cabin Democrat: I notice in Thursday’s paper that mere mention was made of the fact that Rev. J. J. Hurt spoke at the Baptist state convention on educa tion. I believe in showing honor where honor is due. He not only spoke, but it is fair to say that he carried the vast house of over iooo people with him m his arguments in favor of Christian education. His speech was considered one of the strongest if not the strongest of the convention. He was unanimously elected sec retary of the convention and al ready has the minutes out. The Baptist leaders recognize in him a man who accomplishes things and he is used in the forefront of the progressive movements of the de nomination. Member oe the Convention. Conway, Ark., Nov. 21.
