Presiding Elder Calls Situation
to Attention of Con?
ISpeoiaJ to The Times-Dispatch.]
High point. |t C, November 21.?The
second day's session of the Western
North Carolina. Conference of the Meth?
od's-t ?plkoopal Church, South, wit?
nessed the transaction of severa* Im?
portant items of business. The session
be^ari with the devotional hour, con?
ducted by Bishop Collins Denny. Karly
in th?. session the call of the twenty -
second que stion was resumed, and the
names of tho remaining five presiding
elders not called on Wednesday were
called. Their characters were passed
ar.d they submitted their reporta The
youngest of the presiding elders is
P. T. Durham, of the Winston District,
who has Just closed his first year in
?the presiding eldership. When making I
his report, he spoke of having taken
a census in one of the quarterly ?on- ,
ferences of his district with reference
to the observance of family worship,
and that the hand of only one of the]
official members was raised to signify j
that famiiy prayer was a daily ob?
servance of the home. He said that
he made similar inquiry regarding the
dally reading of the Bible, and that not
one hand gave answer to that ques?
tion, and only one of the officials prea
1 sad stated that he read the Bible regu.
' larly on Sunday. Mr. Durham stated
I that so long as conditions like these
exist among the officials of the laity
of the church. It cannot be expected
that young men will enter the min?
istry from the homes which they rep?
resent. He deplored also the fact of.
the small number of people on the!
country charges who attend the quar
tasty meeting occasions of the church. I
Bishop Denny, from time to time,
to-day emphasized the Importance ot |
the increase of the missionary spirit i
in the entire territory of the Methodist
Episcopal Church. South. He called
attention to the fact that during the
past twenty-five years this church has
increased Its assessment for foreign
missions only 5 cents per member,
from 41 to 4$ cents per member, where,
as the Southern Presbyterian Church.
In the same length of time, has In?
creased Its assessment for foreign mis?
sions from TS cents to $1.70 per mem?
He called attention also to the fact
that the Methodist Episcopal Church.
South, now has a membership of 1.927.
209, and the assessment for foreign
missions on the church this year is only
Bishop Denny said that several years j
ago in the conference of which he was '
a member, the Baltimore Conference. ?
he made the statement that he believed <
th church ought to do as much for the
cause of foreign missions as for tne
work of the church at home, and that
when he made the statement some of
the members of the conference thought
his mind had become unbalanced. He j
said be still held the same opinion
regarding the duty of the church to:
foreign missions. He said in concluding :
his remarks on this subject that he j
hoped the Presbyterians-, with what-:
ever they have in their creed to which
Methodists object, will continue to in- j
cite Southern Methodism to larger
things in foreign missiona and hasten )
the time when they will cease to come '
lagging behind and out of breath un?
der the burden of contributing 46 cents i
per member each year to this cause. j
The committee of investigation in
UM case of G. E. Eaves submitted a
report, declaring a trial necessary in
this case. Bishop Denny appointed
thirteen members of the conference to
constitute the committee of trial, and
one member to represent the church ,
and another to represent the one
against whom the complaint has been
The characters of the preachers sus?
taining the aupernumerar> and those
sustaining the superannuate relation
were passed.
Seven applicants for adiuiasion were
admitted on trial in the conference.
This afternoon a meeting in the inter?

was he'.d. and this evening the confer?

Frequently Reported in Print as
Suitor for Hand of Mrs.
John Astor.
CAPTAIN the Hon. Montagu Parker,
due In New York to-day from
England on board the Maure -
tan la. formerly belonged to the
Grenadier Guards, has bean frequently
reported In print aa a suitor for the
hand of Mra. John Astor and came
prominently Into the limelight a oouple
of years or so ago through his re?
markable subterranean exploration ot
the alte of King Solomon'* Temple at
Jerusalem. The story that he and
those associated with him In the enter?
prise had sacrilegiously removed trea?
sures from beneath the Maserus of
Omar, built on the ruftns of Solomon's
Temple, created an immense stir
through the civilized and uncivilized
world, precipitating a ministerial
crisis at Constantinople. It was claim?
ed that he had found the authentic
Ark of the Covenant and the seven
branched candlestick, as welt as the
Mosaic tables of stone and that he had
succeeded in smuggling them, along
with treasures of a much greater value
intrinsically, that Is to say. of gold
and Jew,-is. to the coast and had em?
bark -d them on bis steam yacht await,
lng him there.
No one believes tnat Captain Parker
really did get either the Ark of the
Covenant or the biblical tables ot
stone on which wore inscribed the Ten
Commandments. But he has always
been unwilling to reveal what he and
his friends really did find and carry
away. Perhaps he may be Induced to
disclose the results of h+s remarkable
exploring venture during his present
visit to the United States and Canada
Captain Parker was a frequent
visitor to this side of the Atlantic

Mrs. Rutherford
Charlestown, W. Va.?In an interest?
ing letter from this place Mrs. Calvin
Rutherford writes as follows: "At one
jtime I suffered terribly from womanly
troubles. Some of my symptoms were
hot flashes through the face, pains in my
sides and back, headache, dizzy spells and
pain low down.
Since taking Cardui, the woman's
tonic, I am well and enjoying good health,
and I want to thank you kindly for your
advice. It certainly has proven a blessing
to me. Cardui has done what other medi?
cines failed to do.
I am a trained nurse, and have just re?
turned from a case where I recommended
j Cardui to a lady, and she is now taking it."
In the face of such strong recommenda?
tion from users of Cardui?the ones who
know best just what this preparation will
do for weak, ailing women?no wonder
we do not have to make extravagant
claims for it.
All we can add to the above statement
is that Cardui is prepared from perfectly
harmless vegetable ingredients, which
act gently, yet directly, on the womanly

Plymouth, a seaport for which both
the first and second Dax La of Mortey

in the city and In the highland coun?
try, maintained, along with their ex?
tensive grounds and parks, at the ex
pens? of the government. The ap?
pointment is for five years, and its only
disadvantage is that while tt teats its
holder is precluded from returning to
England, save with the specially
enacted consent of Parliament Sir
Frederick will, as Governor of Bom?
bay, receive In due course the Grand
Crosses of th* Orders of the Star of
India and of the Indian empire, and
will either now or at the end of hi*
tenure of office, neeejv? th* offer of a
peerage, which tt Is doubtful, however,
if he will accept, for he has no private
fortune: certainly not enough to main- :
tain any such dignity.
There are some who will look upon 1
Sir Frederick's appointment to Bom
bay a* a sort of gilded exne, since it I
involves the severance of hi* relations
with the royal household, with which he
has been connected ever since 1?94,
first as equerry and assistant private
secretary to Queen Victoria, afterward*
serving in the same capacity to Ed?
ward \Tf., and now for the past two
year* to King George. Moreover, as a
boy. he was for three years page of
honor to Queen Victoria- Those who
take this view argue that he was too
closely identified with the reign* of
Queen Victoria and King Edward and
with all the political, official and social
views and prejudice* of those two
sovereigns, to be altogether In touch
with the present regime. In many
, matters King George and Queen Mary
have strongly pronounced Ideas of their
own which differ somewhat from those
of their predecessors on the throne.
Sir Frederick may have felt this and
have also realized that there was no
advancement to which he could look
at court, since King George has ap?
pointed Lord Stamford, who had been
his private secretary when heir appar?
ent, to continue to serve him as prin?
cipal private secretary after hi* succes?
sion to the crown.
Perhaps King George and Queen
Mary felt. too. that they would like to
have in their immediate entourage
some men more closely In touch with
them than Sir Frederick, at the same
time recognizing that his past services
to Queen Victoria and to Edward VII.
deserved some better reward than an
assistant private secretaryship, subor- j
dinate to Lord Stamford. !
That the? service* have been very
great It la impossible to deny. They
were fulfilled with diligence, intellt-;
gence and the utmost discretion aad'
tact, especially dunng the reign of
Edward VII.. who accorded the utmost
confidence and affectionate regard to
Sir Frederick, whom he had Known
from boyhood. Still, at the same time.
Sir Frederick's departure for India will
break the tie which has existed for
j more than half a century. For when
Sir Frederick was appointed assistant
privat? secretary to Queen Victoria,
hi* father, the late General Sir Henry
Ponsonby, was still her private secre?
tary, and the general had been at tn*t
time connected with the royal house- 1

The preliminaries for selecting de?
baters to represent Carolina In the de.
bate against Washington and Lee Uni?
versity, which contest ls staged fot
December 14 In Lexington, were held
last night in the Philanthropic Liter?
ary Society Hall. The four contestants
in the preliminaries were: W. ft. Pat
teway. of Tampa, Fla.; & W. Whiting,
of Raleigh; J. C. Busby, of Salisbury,
and H, C Petteway. of Broussvtlb.
Kla. The judges of the contest wars
Professor M. H. Stacy. Professor A. C.
Mclntosh and Dr. H. W. Chase. The
judges rendered a decision in favor
of H. C. Petteway and J. C Busby as
the team that will wrangle with the
Lextngtonlans in December. The query
to be discussed ls: "Kesolved, That a
more easy and expedient method of
amending the Federal Constitution
should be adopted." Carolina upholda
the negative side of the query.
Since a tie in debating now standa
between these two institutions, tho
debate in December wllb naturally call
for a spirited interest in the contest,
each Institution endeavoring to break
the tie to Its credit. This is the third
debate in recent years between Caro?
lina and Washington and Lee. In 1905
the Lexington!ans won; in 1910 the Tar
Heels were the victors.
