A Large Attendance. Hopeful Reports Pr. mised. The annual session of the New Mex ico conference of the Methodist church south opened last night in Trinity church with a sermon from Rev. Foulks of Albuquerque. The church was well filled, there was a pleaairg array of Bowers and plants in front of the pulpit, the front seats were filled with the visiting clergymen, and there was a larger choir than usual. Miss Florence Be all as tbe organist. The singing was hearty and good. For an offertory Miss Beall played "La Fointaine." Mr. Foulks spoke from tbe 15th and 17th chapters of John's gospel with the first verse of tbe latter chapter as tbe central text. "These words spake Jesus, and lifted up his eyes to heaven, and said. father, the hour is come; glorify thy fori, that toy son may also glorify thee." The speaker said in part: Our Lord has citsd the relationship of hus band and wife as illustrative of himself and the church. But this relationship was not so much like what we see to day when lives and hearts becomes es tranged, drifting hither and thither until at times it has seemed impossible to trace iaoniiy nisiory. unnsi s re lationship with the church is represent ed by the true relation; so Christ and every believer is a unit, for ttey are Christ's aod he is their's. Christ pres ents bis church to the father that he may take it from the world and pave tbe way for the church to sanctifica- tion. Strip humanity of all its sin and weakness, and you will have an idea of what the church is yet to be in this . world. Man cannot reason out how a soul is saved, or the Savior's sacri fice. Yet God has so brought it about that we can receive that salva tion and enjoy it in our souls. Christ is able to save to the uttermost,) and it is our duty to surrender completely to him that we may through bim receive remission of our sins. Christ can reinstate in the heart, simplicity and love to God so that such a eoul will be kept where confidence fixed in God without spot or wrinkle. We need to watch and pray and be earnest that God may guide us into all truth. Christ is a present Savior, and he says, it tne sun make you free, ye sball be free indeed. He will uphold us bo that the tide of adversity can not over whelm us. Christ preFented himself a sacrifice that we might be sanctified and made holy like unto himself. Those who are sanctified in Christ are also made heirs with him in the kingdom. At the close of the service Mrs. Wilson was received into the church, and a general handshaking followed.
