While all the mejiibcrs of the church were not. of 4jurse, present, most of those prominent in the church work were there and took part in the proecislings. The meeting was culled to order by .Mr. A. ! 1 Clu-an, president of the board of trus tees. Hon. W. I.. Weaver, clerk of th board, acting as secretar). The chairman Stated the object of the meeting and. at liis request, the secn-tary read General limrt nell's letter. To get the sense of the meeting, Mr. James T.

The resolution was discussed at consider able length by those present the sentiment being practically unanimous in favor of the. acceptance of Mr. Warder softer. Messrs. W. M.

C. meeting was considered in tiie light of a "friendly talk," but the representative of the Ur.n lu.n will take the lilterty of stat- ine one or two of the remarks made bv Mr. , C. A. Phelps. He said that about two years ago Mr. Wanler told him that be would give the church $10,000 for the lot on the corner of High and Spring streets, as he desired it for the purpose of erecting thereon a public i I.uiMlug. Mr. Phelps told lum that he ' thought the congregation would not sell the l lot, at least at that price. About three weeks ago General llushuell informed him that I'lr. Wanlerstood ready to pay SItl.CHK) for be given serious consideration by the con gregation. The result of that conversation with General liushnell was the letter which had been read by the secretary. Mr. Phelis said that he had seen the letter which Mr. Wanler had written to General liushnell, and it was a letter that one tnie, honest friend might write to another. It indicated j to a large degree Mr. Warder's .sincerity of I character and xiiuti.iTV nf ithi'Osk. No disposition was manifested by him to do or ask anything that was not fair or reasonable, and he (Mr. Phelps) hoped that the congregation would consider the proposition in the spirit in which it had lieen made. There was one sentence in Mr. Warder's letter which he thought the congregation, in the consideration of this question, ought to , hear. Mr. Warder leferred to his health, i which had not lieen of the best, and in con-1 eluding wrot": "Whatever I do in this mat- j ter must be done huickly." "Six months I from this time," sain Mr. Phelps, "we may not have -vir. vvaruer with us ami tins MtDrelt sllnllM tint ntllce llu' .ihtscle tl. the wayof'thecarr)ingout of his noble pur - .. JHr-C. The jsiple of this community will learn ' with prulouml sorrow of Mr. Warder's ill health and the hope will be unanimous and heart-felt that he may lie spared to us tor many )ears to iune. One thing was brought out b) Mr. Phelps's remarks that has not lieen generally known, i. r. that Mr. Wanler's put .se not only to erect the build ing, but also to purchase the site, has been formed lor two ji-.irs or more, and that he has been prevented from proceeding activ e 1) with the work mil) by the diflieulty of securing a suitable location.
