I ho position of the church In the life of the notion, may I.xi.led as the result of the setlon yesterday Of the Boai'ii of Church F.xtenslon of the Methodist episcopal Church. South* In session In (his city* The HllnnlatloiiH laid down by the board In it-< resolution directing the, beginning of the work will he speedily compiled with. Thla statement was made by liev. George S. Sexton, secre? tary of the General Conference, com? mittee em a Washington city repre? sentative .lunch, who, overjoyed at, the approaching completion of his plans, said n> The Tlinoi'-Oispatoli that! at the ne.Vt annual meeting of the board U will be reported that con? struction Is iMider way. Wlloii liiipprntlvei "The agitation of this enterprise,", said the board's committee In Its re-] port, which was nt anlmously adopted.' "has now reached " stage which calls for ah aggressiv? plan or concerted Hction upon the part of this board. It Is of the utmost Importance that actual work upon the building be com? menced before the next antiu.il meeting of the board- This is indicated by the need>< of the .Mount Veriiou Place Church, and Is also demanded by the exigencies of the canvass for money." Therefore the committee recom? mended: "That tho work of building he begun by the commission as soon as it bus secured IIS5.H0? In available subscriptions, and whrjg the Mount Vernon Place Church has Hooured at least $26,000 In addition to the valuo of the present church properly ($50. 100), and the subscription of the Balti? more Conference shall. have readied two-thirds of the $25,000 promised by thai body: provided that no contract shall be let until tho means are in hand tc meet It, so that no debt shall at any time be Incurred beyond the re? sources available lo meet It." Aliunnt Ansiircd, Dr. Sexton says with glee that ho has In sight the sum" of $197,857.00. This is made up of the subscriptions icciired in the four years since the pro? ject was started, with the Baltimore Conference pledge, the General Con? ference plan of $ir.,nfn) n year for four years, provided for in church exten tdon assessment, and tho value of tho Mount Vernon Place Church property and pledges from that church. Tho now Washington Representative Church Is to take the place of tho Mount Vernon Place edifice. In the rVport of the General Confer? ence committee. It was urged that there be no further delay, which ":dls courges its friends and discredits us all. Flail lure Is noi to be thought of. for that would mean disgrace and damage to our whole connection." So within a year or two a S-75.0110 church building will rear its head at % the national capital, comporting with the governmental structures which adorn Washington, and showing the visitors from all Mates and all coun? tries what Southern Methodism will nnd can do. A .Notable Addres*.

First ho spoke of ? tho changes in New York during the past few yearn in all kinds of struc? tures. Then he talked of less tangible tilings, such as tho political structure. "Wo have outgrown our fathers politi? cally," ho said, "and we must rebuild." One trouble with the Southern Meth? odists, ho continued, was their lack of patience. "We are," ho said,, "filled with an insane nervousness, solf-per pctrated and dollbcrately nursed. We want to hold a meeting lo-night, ndnpt plans for a church building to-mor? row, build it and consecrate it next Sunday. ., "Wc say we are generous when we are foolish; we say we are broad minded when wc arc silly; we say wo arc lnrge-hearled. when we are weak headed; wo say we are filled with cos? mopolitan sentiment, when we arc full Instead of shallow conviction.

Theso things feed on our liberality, filch our pockots anil leave us with a phadow.

"It may bo wisp, to give to these, other mutters outside of tlie church, but you would have n bard time con? vincing inc. Not long ago a man said io mo that. ho. found In bis church a large enough Held for all his activities and for the expenditure of his moans.. "It is'a reflection on Methodism to nay that one can lind a better agent for actl Villen I ban his own church and his own pnstor, T hope to see the day when tho pastor and the bishop shall have as largo a place nt. the Methodist altar as an outsider."

ALARMIST IS REPUBLICAN -J. Prince, of Illinois, Can See No Other Result of Reciprocity Between Two Countries. House Hears Attack on Post-Off ice Department 1 as Political Machine. Washington, D. C, April 28.-?ArM othor declaration that annnsattton la the desired end of the Democrats In, pushing reciprocity; an attack on tKri Post-Office Department as tho "great-i est political organization of this oc, any other land," and a speech by ? new member of tho Houso revealing, humors of a tariff right In Congress, featured to-day's debate on tho froo; list bill now pending before the House. Mr. Prince, of Illinois, Republican, attacking; the Canadian reciprocity bill;, sounded tho annexation noto. Presi? dent Taft's speech In Now York Thurs? day night furnished his text. He said that tho pouring of Americans Into tho Canadian Northwest, and the attitude* of the controlling forces of tho Demo? cratic party, could menn nothing else., than annexation, reciprocity and . par? tial free, trade with Canada being the first step toward that ond. ^ Op Not Received. "Dot mo say to' our neighbors on tho North, bo not deceived," said Mr.' Prlnco. "When wo go Into a country and set control of It. we take lt.. It Is our history, and It Is right that wo should tako It It wo want It, and you might as well understand at. The Speaker has said so; the party back of him has said so, and it does not deny that that is Us desire." Mr. Prince declavod that tho reci? procity hill was tho worst bargain even driven by ono nation with another, an^ that Ihe "Democratic farmers' froe list hill ought to bo lnrbelcd tho 'farmers' fako bill.' " Tho real climax of the session came when Representative Kont, of Cali? fornia. iL new Republican member, de? livered a semi-humorous speech on the general tariff question, arraigning "a revenue tnriff upon necessities." Uo said that with other novices In ?tho I House, he folt sura ho had absorbed ' speeches until he had "learned much that cannot possibly bo true," and that the Congressional Record was tilled with a mnss of mathematics "proving what is logically absurd." "I am a Republican, or what used lo be a Republican." Mr. Kent observ? ed, "because 1 believe In tho protection of Infant Industries that stand 'some eventual chance of becoming self-sus? taining. Rut mnny lniVustrles. having outgrown tho cradle, have not been re? quired lo hustle for their livelihood, but have bcon carried bodily to a ward in the hospital whero our standpat frionds advocate keeping them, during all eternity, to be doctored, nursed and nourished at tho public expense." Mr. Kent said that a protcctlv?~tnrlf? was an attempt to "tax ourselves rich.'* "The nation can acquire wealth, It not merit," ho said, "by unanimously consenting to the reciprocal picking oC pockets by all tho "people." To show tariff inequalities. Mr. Kent said that "Mr. Rockefeller probably poys less government rcvenuo on tho food he consumes than does tho aver* ngo hod carrier. He would doubtless like to pay as much, but ho can't wlthi out eating as much." Groat Political Machine. "The Post-Offlco Department Is the greatest political machine over con-, ?trueted In this or any othor country, and It In openly admlnlstored as a poli? tical organization." This was the charge made on tho floor of Ilia House by Mr. Cullop, oi\ Indiana, who referred to Postmaster-. General Hitchcock ns being tho creator and presiding genius of this organi? zation. Too much time de-voted by tho head of tlio Post-Olllco Department to political affairs and too little to busi? ness, were declared by Mr. Culloj to bo responsible for tho annual deficit In tho operation of tho department. He, said that tho people should know whe? ther any of the 272,000 postmnsters on employes had been discharged or re? duced In rank for failure to perform! political duties or contribute to cam-, palgn funds, and whether employes aro regularly assessed for campaign pur- ., posos. and are punished If they do not; comply. He declared that tbu appointive, power lodged with the President 1? greater than that enjoyed by any .foreign monarch. "The power vested in the President is almost unlimited." ho said. "No man is wise enough, or good enough, op great enough to bo intrusted with such.1 power. It Is tho oxporlence of the world thnt men clothed with such pow? er beconio Impiitlont of rostcalnt,'" Mr. Cullop advocated tho direct elec? tion of many of tho Federal employes, such as I'nlted States marshals and postmasters.
