REPORT OF COMMITTEE Recommend Tlint In er-Churclied Towns SllsMliinnrj- Aid Should He Given Only One Etntigpllcnl Churrii The Idcn of 1( crntUyi In Gaining, Monlpeller, Nov. 21 The commltteo from the Congregational, Methodist, Bap tist and Free Baptist Churches of Ver mont met at Montpeller to-day and the executive committee romposed of tho Revs'. Ijowe and Kmzie of Harm, Dexter of Wllllamstown nnd Reed of Montpeller niado a report of tho condition of the churches throughout tho State nnd made recommendations in regard to certain fields of tho State. This report Is In part as follows: To all the churches have been sent cir cular letters some .V.) In number stating the object and purpose of the Inquiries. The following were In th- Inquiries: (1) Is your town over churched 7 (2) In your Judgment If any, should ou 1,0 willing to give way to, or combino with, any other church or churches and why? 3) What Is the best and most 1 ractlc abln form of consolidation or do you think that federation of ail the loc.il churches for praoxlcal co-operation would bo the wisest step? (1) Aro the churches In your commun ity ready for It, and It not, what are tho chief obstacles? (5) Do you personally favor sucn a move? In reply to the first question as to whether the town was nver-churched 103 answered in the negative and 71 In the aflirmatlvc. To tho second question a numbor say that thn Protestant Episco pal Church ought to give way slnco It ts tho smallest and does not appeal to any large portion of thn population but they are of the opinion that u Is not likely to , give way. j "ine do not state which church ought to bo merged '"it answer In I such a way as to lci a very plain Inference. Eight nr tin pastors bav been found that' 'how their Christian consecration by statd1,? their willing ness to resign their p'astorate and go elsewhere If a .better man could bo found for the consolidated church. The committee report that It Is evi dent that some, towns are over church' d. There are towns huvlng two churches which work amicably togeth er whllo there are sonic In which pre judice nnd party feeling runs so high as to retard the mnvunient, of fedurut Ing. The committee are of the opinion that the following towns could be fed crated to good advantage Hrooltllne, Westfleld, Newp'Tt Center, Wardsboro, E'tst Dover, Weslfnrd, WiltrJiiHton, Es sex Junction. Johnson, (laysville, Jeri cho Corners and fjo-ihcn. The commit tee did not (Ueii It advisable to havo nlnu churches In the town nf Lyndnn vlllo whluli has but 3,000 population- In St. Johnsbi.i y nicy liellev. ;ho Baptists and the Freo Will I! 'Ins should unite. In Rlchfotd ti e federa tion of thu two Advent churches would be advisable. Tho committee mention some princi pal stress In the coming together of tho chuichps First and most funda mental there Is 11 svmpai..iitic attitude which must pr. phip all attempts at co-operation, second, there Is a form of federation In which each church retains Its liwn pastor and is perfectly autony mous. Such a federation Is being or ganized In Newport for the purpose of doing various kinds of Christian and benevolent work but each church re tains Its own pastor. The third step Is another form of federa tion where one, two nr more societies agree to han one pastor and each organization maintains Its Identify. Examples of sucti nre Randolph, Castle ton, Eust Charlestown, Wllllston and Proctor. Doubtless this kind of federation has a marked tendency towards ccm plete amalgamation under the Copgregn tioiml form. The fourth step Is complete consolida tion. Them are various modifications to the foregoing according to tho circumstances and tho committee realize the dif ficulty of applying the foregoing principles to any community and doubt If It can be met at long range. It will probably be non-effective to call together represent ative men of the demonlnatlons interest ed to consider tho casn In any given com munity. They think however that mis slonnry aid ought not to be granted to two different evangelical churches In over- churched towns. They aUo think that the most practical way of removing a superfluous church would be for the denomination giving up something In one place to receive something elsewhere and thus a "balauco of powers" be maintain ed. Denominational pride In this way would be saved. In regard to question four the obstacles aro about such ns might be expected; excesslvo denominational feeling, pre judices and social differences, As a rul'i tho smaller the town the greater tho pro- Judlce, In nnswor to question five there Is nn doubt that the majority of those replying aro In favor of the movement, In closing they state they havo con siderable doubt as to whether tho Chris tian churches of this State are yet ready to take hold of federation or consolida tion In any largo way but that on the other hand they feel certain that the Idea Is constantly making headway, The committee Is comprised of the Rev. R. F. Lowo of Barro, tho Rev, L. p. need of Montpeller, tho nev, W, A. Konzle of Barro, the Rev. Lewis Dexter of West Topham and the Rev. Frazer Mctzgor of Randolph. DEATH OF J. M. COATES.
