The offer was gratefully accepted and a vote of thanks was extended to Mr. Johnson.

An order will ibe placed at once for the Instrument and It will 'be Installed at the earliest posxlble moment. Since the fire of two years ago, the church has .been without a pipe organ, their organ having been destroyed in the fire, and the burden on the shoulders of the church in paying for the new edifice would have precluded the pur chase of a new Instrument for soma time. In consequence the gift of Mr. Jiihnxon Is gTeatly appreciated. At yesterday's meeting trustees and deacons were elected, reports of the ynrn work read Iby Treasurer Iaac Wargelln and Pastor Tlev. John liack, and the report of the building com mittee was submitted. A vote on the retention of the pastor was taken re sulting In 55 ballots being cast against and -13 for. The (ballot was not re garded as decisive and an ndjoairn nient was taken, after considerable dlsiusslon, until two weeks from yes terday. The trustee elected were: Samuel Turja, Carl Lemberg. Carl A. Sllfveu. John Tlhlnen, Isaac Wargelln and J. 11. Jasiberg. The following were elected as dea cons: IMatt Kalmlnen. Dr. J. I. Xlkan- dcr, Fabian Tolonen, .Matt ..Matson, O. F.
