your march under' the flair ' of. the
Methodist Episcopal Clmrch. We
look over the past and find our 'his- 1
t?r> illuminated with an array of (
men, whose valour and heroic deeds <
weave a chaplet of undying: fame for ?
their sable brows. : ,
We have built up a constituency of
'iO.oOO strong whose church holdings
amount to $1,472,346.00 and this a<i-,
ded to our school property, gives us
a working base of $1,572,346.00.
From the day that our American
Methodism met hi her infancy in , a
prayer-meeting in the hay loft in New
York City and throughout the Pauline
jou i neyingg of her first great Amer
ican Bishop to this very. day, we have
sustained and do now sustain a vital
and integral relation to and consti
tute a vital and integral relation to
and constitute a spiritual unit in the
spiritual solidarity of the ' church of
our birth and choice. This relation
ship and birthright we do not intend
to surrender. ^ -
In these days when the questions of
federatipn and organic , union with
other Method isms are t'.Mder passage
way, there is a darkening of counsel
and an attempt to mislead the unwary
by the multiplication of untempered
words as to our relation and preroga
tives in our church. The opinion -has
gained currency in certain quarters
that we, the Colored members of our
church, are contemplating withdraw
ing from our church to enter one of
the distinctive Colored Me'thodtsms of
the land and that, our church is con
templating inviting us to withdraw
from her fold or is ruthlessly planning
to set us aside. To sustain this state
ment, we refer you to the columns
of 'The Christian Recorder,'? the offi
cial orgau of the African Methodist
Episcopal Church ? in a recent publi
cation. That that, great paper should
open its columns to such a statement
as appeared therein is an ? evidence
that a greed lor proselyting has un
balanced its reason and destroyed its
lo\o for accuracy. We regard such
statement, as disruptive of our ranks
and destructive of our peace and we
declare that there is mo such official
effort or purpose within our church.
We further regard such publications
as referred to above as unsupported
by facts, unbroth^rly anfl violative of
the Christian spirit and of interde
nominational courtesy.
Reloved, to all. who hold such opin
ions or entertain such d-isctiysions or
make such attacks, we declare the fol
lowing to be our deliberate convic
tiens and .sincere purpose.
First: The Methodist "Episcopal
church is the church of our faith and
lo\e. She has not in her official
capacity, or in her official voice or
in the general administration of her
machinery uttered a single note or
taken a single stand, or placed upon
her statute books a. single act controry
to the spirit of the brotherhood or
that^ may be construed as prejudical
o our highest, interest or that looks
towards inviting us to leave our
father's house.
Second: Our great church has a
history upon all questions that may
he read in every chapter without the
suspicion of a charge of double deal
ing being placed at. her doors touch
ing our interests and there is nothing/ (
in the present, negotiations for federa- j
ticn or organic union, that may give
warrant to the charge that the church \
is not true to us for that looks to the
dismemberment of ftpiscopal's faithful
I people. Further, isolated or inclden
, ? t
tal- slights, here and there, can never
bo regarded by sound thinkers as
suflRcientygrounds for a revolutionary
disruption of the peace of a great
church or for advocating the segrega
tion of our membership from the
church* of their choice. ? Nor will we
listen to the destructive voice of this
sirctt.-. We will not. march for such
Third: While it may be said that
we have not yet attained unto the full
measure of all the prerogatives with
in the church that some of our mem
bers enjoy; nevertheless by the aots
of legislation, >jve are endowed witu
lull equality in all the privileges and
duties of membership and we intend
to hold steady and "press with vigor
on" unto the mark. We do not be
live that the God-fearing men. who
have been legislating thus for a gen
eration and more, are in the game <'f
misleading us to follow a jack-o'
lantern phantom of spurious equality ,
nor are. we deceiving ourselves in our
faith in our church and in our devo
tion to her polity or fci our hopes in
the future for the Negro people cal
led Methodist Episcopalians.
Finally: Wo send this word of
cheer to you "To your tents Oh!
Israel" and, "fcold that fast which
Uku hast, that no man take thy
crown." Wo are In our father's house
and there we abide. And in the
words of Martin Luther, the mightv
nfbnk of E.isleben before the Diet of
Worms, wo lift our voice in the fill- |
aess of our African enthusiasm and
say: "Here we stand, we can dov no
other. God help us."

The Washington Annual Conference
