Under his leadership the association nt once met with a hearty response. Its first bulle tin called attention to the situation respecting the Al'isk.in coal lands which have rlnce achieved such prom inence ' through the Palllnger-Pinchot controversy. In that bulletin which was Issued In November, Dr. Eliot, speaking of the association, said: "The National Conservation associa tion Is convinced of the urgent need of Immediate measures to prevent the control of the great sources of heat and nicchanic.il power in the United States from being seized by monopo list ie organizations, and to secure the best development of these sources In the interest of the whole people."

BOARD OF MISSIONARY STUDY. NECESSARY SAYS COMMISSION International Missionary Confer ence Urged to Establish One by Investigators. REPORT IS SUBMITTED TODAY Edinburgh, June 22. The commission on "The Preparation of Missionaries" presented Its report at today- session of tho International Missionary con ference. The report was read by tho chairman of the commission. Rev. W. Douglas Mackenzie. D. I)., president of Hartford. Conn., Theological seminary. Having determined the need of a body definitely commissioned to ex amine into and co-ordinate the possi bilities for special missionary prepara tion, the commission proposed that steps should be taken by tho world missionary conference to create a per manent board of missionary Ptudy through the Joint action of the several societies and boards. The report In part follows: "It Is not possible to rcgurd every desire to offer for service ubroad as constituting in itself u call to work In the foreign field. In each church there ure those on whom rests the solemn responsibility of deciding on the fit t ess of the applicant. In tho strictest tense no vocation Is complete until the moving of the spirit from within Is confirmed and crowned from without, through the operation of the same spirit. No one would claim infallibil ity for the decisions of candidates' committees, but definite functions are entrusted to them, each within tho limits of Its own community. In order therefore to lessen the dan ger of eventual disappointment, the commission would urge the necessity for: (a) More careful statement on the part of official deputations In their ap peals for offers of service. "(b) A clearer apprehension on the luirt of both clergy and people of the requirements of the modern situation on the mission field. "(e) More frank and confidential contact between local workers and the candidates' committees and central of ficials. "(d) Sympathetic effort at tho time of rejection to soften the blow and pre vent the dissipation of spiritual energy conseeitient on the disappointment of the hopes both of the Individual und of the congregation. "The church us a whole has respon sibility, not only in regard to mission ary vocation, but also at the various stages of missionary preparation. "As soon as the candidate declares his Intention of offering himself for work abroad, and has been provisional ly n't least, accepted, the period of strictly missionary preparation be gins, and the direct responsibility of the chrurch In the matter devolves up on the special department of church organization which Is concerned with missionary work. "The institutions engaged in provid ing the training have a claim on gen erous financial support. The burden of raising the necessary funds should never be thrown on the authorities In charge of them. They have a claim still more on the support of constant nnd faithful Intercession. After six years' contest Peter Coep er Hewitt has received patents for his mercury vapor electric lamp. fTlio patents have been in dispute almost ince the date when they were -first applied for, ln 1901.
