"There were 309 ministers who

corresponding secretary of the board
of foreign missions of tho Methodist

last night at the conference. Dr.
Ix>wo Characterized the recent con

and I'aclilc problems as the greatest
achievement In foreign missions In
many centuries. Ho said in part;
"In Japan there Is a cry for rice
and α roof and for a share in the
government on the part of an ever
increasing number in that empire,
a rising tide of democracy in that
country -with its autocratic govern
ment. In ChinR wo have a xreat de
velopment in which a quarter of the
human race is endeavoring to or
ganize Itself in a popular govern
ment. Wo have never yet appreciat
ed the magnitude of that movement
of 400 million In China. In India
the British empire Is transferring· to
the people great government re
"There is insistent need that spir
itual ideals resting on a foundation
of education, not the Ideals of Ignor
ant anarchy and materialism, shall
dominate these movements.
"Think of the race question. Un
less wo turn a new page in history
and work out some means of co-op
eration between races wo are going
forth to a struggle even worse than
I tjiat through which wo have ,1ust
come. All the time wo aro preaching
to the world In our commercial and
international relationships and in all
ways of communication with the
world. If we preach discord and

' suit.
"Industrialism, thougli farther ad
vanced In Japan, is making rapid
progress in China. Wo are export
ing not only our machinery, but our
industrial protyems.
ι "Tho Washington conference was
II a foreign missionary affair becausce
it took great steps toward the ac
■ complishment of the ultimate end of
• foreign missions, which is the estab

1 not enough to make treaties with
out the spirit Of confidence, mutual
