In his report of the outlook committee Mr. Davles said In part: "It looks as though our Congregation al arnv hud suddenly sprung Into ex hibitions of marvelous energy and ac tivity all along the line. From Maine to I'alifornln. the Congregational bodv Is actually alive, suggesting lendiness to attempt gieat things. There is a deep feeling manifest (hit something is very wrong ln the Christian Churches and denominations of our times and that it ought not to be and must no longer lie allowed. The wrong is manifest, it is said, by innnv signs nnd symptoms, such us thevfew conversions and few additions to the i hurches, the absfnee of multi tudes from the religious services, de erene in membership In the Sunday schools and In chtlstlan Endeavor ser vlci s, decrease in the number of young men entering th" ministry, smallness of salaries of mlnlstei s, lack of response on tl.e part of chinches to eat nest ap peals to sustain missionary operation" throughout the w-oild, though the oppor tunities of expansion are everywhere most abundant; Ignorance of young men and women of the scriptures; unron si lousness of the churches of the aliena tion nf vast numbers of people from them, there seeming to be nothing In common between churches and people and the chinches not troubled about It. Such are some of the elements of the case which. If continued. It Is said fore bodes the death or passing nwa of our churches to give place to something bet ter " "Another serious asnect of the enso. Is the absence of Interest n the Christ Ian churched In the foreign people who live In their community.

TU reg'ila" piognim of the afternoon sectfnn tar at three o'clock, with an address i tlio Rev Frank Dyer ot Chi cago. III., secretary of th National Council's Committee on Congregational Brotherhood. As the afternoon program had almost cntlrfly to do with the gnat brotherhood movement which Is spring ing up in the Congregational churches, Mr. Dyer took for his sublect "The Mis. slon of tho Congregational Brotherhood." Tho Ideal brotherhood, ho said, is of Christian origin and spread rapldlv dur ing tho Apostolic age and for centimes following. When Chrlstnnlty cum- in contact with hatbtrlc hordes the brother hood became more and mom ec clesiastical and It was thought that it could not exist In the world of common affairs but must withdraw Into seclusion. The Reformation, however, changed thu and the Idea of brotherhood again came to bo associated with common life. It has manifested Itself In various forms of organization. A hundred ye.-i-s ago It wns scon In the organization of the Sunday schoot for the Instruction the young In religions truth. About the same time arose the organization nt young men and women for mlsslomr, purposes. About 30 years ago there w-.-is a feeling that there was a gap between the younger and tlie adult members of the Christian congregations. To fill t'.'s gap and to bring the younger element i In the congr gallon Into active servi-e ln the church the young peopv'j organizations arose, notably the Chris, tian Endeavor movement. It Is now felt that the men of the church are not doing th" most effrctlvo work possible foi tho promotion of religions life at home and abroad, and the present movement is de signed to organize them for this ser vice. The brotherhood Is not yet formally organized but It Is proposed to do so at a meeting to bo held at Detroit. Mich., the last of this month. The m'tinci will be held In the First Church in that city, whose pns'tnr Is the Rev. G Glenn Atkins, who takes a deep interest In tho movement. DISCUSSION OF SUBJECT. Mr. Dyer's nddrers wns follow' d by a discussion, Prof. S. V. Emetson of the university leading. Professor Em erson emphasized the dlstlte Ilon be tween two methods by whl- a God re veals himself to man. The first Is the revelation made In the Bible This Is the revelation that has beep empha sized bv the English-speaking people, but another revelation Is through the common relations and nffaits of life. This l the method emphfislred on the continent of Europe. These two are not evltislve of each other but Pro fissor Krnerson emphasized the neces sity of giving more attention to the second method, a? specially fitted to meet the mora! and religious needs of to-day. The proposed organization Is well fitted to bring this to the atten tion and make It effective In life. Th" (jnv. I). L. Milliard of New Hav en said that the great necessity of the dnv Is public sentiment friendly to spiritual life. This sentiment Is cre ate,! by the men of the community, hence the opportunltv Is offered to the brotherhood to create that sentiment that wou,d give to religion a stronger Influence ln the community. Amon others who participated in th" discussion were C. T. Button of Mlildlebiirv: II. S. Howrrd and Fred S Pense of Hurllngton: the Rev. R. R. Dnvles of Vergennes: the Rev. W. P. Ja.kson nf St. A. nans. At the close of the discussion Mr. Dyer answered several questions relative to tho broth erhood organization. RESOLUTIONS At the close of the afternoon ses sion tin- following resolution was read am! adopted: Resolved, that the Congregational club of Western Vermont endorse most heartily the movement for the organ ization of the Congregational Brother hood and urge the Congregational churches of Vermont to participate by sending delegates ;o the Brotherhood convention to be held at Detroit, Mich., April 2S.

At C p m the meeting adjourn ed to tho palish house, where a boun tiful supper was served by the ladles ot the parish. EVENING SESSION. The evening session opened lu the church at 7:30 n't lock with a some what larger attendance than In the afternoon. The meeting was opened with n devotional service and music by the church choir. LAYMEN'S MISSIONARY 'MOVEMENT The principal address of the evening was delivered by the Rev. C. H. Pat ton, P. D., home Koctetnry of the Am erican Board, who spoke on "The Lay men's Missionary Muvement " Mr. Potton delivered a strong and eloquent address which struck home with vital forre to every one of his listeners. He spoke of the ,;reat million dollar cam paign which was opned In Burlington three years ago under su-ii discour aging circumstance- and saJil that he had always had a feeling in his henrt for this city since tl-.e missionary movement had spread to such broad fields, and that It was evident that a new cou-age had started among the men of the Congregational Church In Burlington oi they could never have presented such a splendid prosrnm ns was offered at that meeting. He then passed to the new movement, that of the laymen's Missionary Move ment, which Is taking Mich deep root all over the United States and Inducing men to take up the work nf aiding the mis sion boards ln their effort to teach tho gospel nf Christ In foreign lnnds. Tho Laymen's Missionary Movement, he said, was not an nrsanl'iitlon ot a direct mis sionary kind but a sort of co-operative organization for the support of mission ary organizations. It Is Interdenomina tional In Its character, inasmuch as It reaches all chinches nnd all people In terested In the missionary work In for eign fields. The Holy Spirit, he continued Is bnck of the movement, that Is, the spirit of Christ woiklng In men to ghe them new light ns to their duty In this respect.
