B' I $tHEW£ATHER I FAIR AND COLDER W Reaseas Set Forth for Gaios of Membership the Past Tear 'X'.. By Associated Press. CONDITIONS CRITICISED MINNEAPOLIS,' Minn., May 2 —Criticism of Itfoe condition which enabled the church to gain less than two per cent in membership in the last year,' and charges that the church press was being used as a "free forum by promotors of dissatis faction" was made in the bishop's report to the quadrennial general conference of the Episcopal church here today. Important Document The report, known as the "Episco pal address," signed by eighteen bish ops in this and six in foreign coun tries, and regarded as the most im portant document to come before the conference, as it contains the bish ops' recommendations for the guid ance and the policy of the church. It was read by Bishop Earl Cran ston, of Washington, D. C, and an other Motion which the bishops hare been working on will be delivered tomorrow. The report says in the last year the church has made a gain of but 55,000, which Is less than "two per cent, as the outcome of a year's ac tivities, and an outlay of many mil lions of dollors. This statistical par adox glares us out of countenance." "What are honors of offices worth in any army that does not win bat tles? It is no marvel that there are some proposing to reduce major gen* erals to post duty and let the army dissolve Into antique aecleslasticial camps." Would Limit Activities. This reference to proposed limit ing of activities to local district of bishops whose jurisdiction is now universal as proposed by one wing of the conference. One reason for the meagre growth says the report, is too strict appli cation of the law demanding all mem bers who remove from the communi ty without church letters to be dropped from membership after a year. A plea was also made for the emphasis of the*dlstinctive Wesleyan doctrines, as the "only power to save the nation against vice." Again the report says the church system is not being worked as form erly, and certain distinctive! parts) have beet modified or abandoned. Calling in evangelists for revival ser vices was also condemned, as was also the "Congregational system" calling for a pastor for local churches The report asks for fixing two or more .Episcopal residences In this country at stragetic centers. The conference ordered a commis sion appolUfd to Investigate the Episcopal supervision of 3,000 negro members in southern states, as Wm. Lucas, of Mississippi, claimed altho Bishop Neeley's residence was fixed at New Orleans he had resided there not more than twenty or thirty days in the last four years.
