church conference held in New York
in 1003. In the three years which
have elapsed since then thirty-two re
ligious bodies have formally ratitle.l
and adopted the plan of federation de
vised by the conference and appointed
delegates to the council. The presi
dent of the council during these im
portant years at the beginning of the
movement has been the Uev. William
II. Hoberts, 1). I)., LL. D., of the
Presbyterian church. He presided at
the opening sessions of the council.

I'nlon betwocn Christian denomina
tions has not usually been attended
with a great deal of success except In
the foreign mission fields. There un
ion is more easily accomplished be
cause denominational differences, so
far as the native churches are con
cerned, are neither old nor deep. In
China, Japan, India and Korea prac
tical unions have been accomplished
between churches of similar funda
mental faiths. In the establishment of
educational nnd other Institutions on
the foreign fields many denominations
have jolued, ono university in China,
for example, being supported by Ilap
tlst, Methodist, Congregational, Quak
er and Anglican missions.
Most of the movements which begin
with organic union of denominations
as their object end lu the establish
ment of federations, of which the Fed
eral council is the largest In tho
world. Federation organizations are
advisory only, whereas n lody result
ing from organic union would have
legislative functions.
In Canada n union between Presby
terians, Methodists and Congregation-,
ullsts seemed likely for a time to bo,
effected, but leaders now believe that
federation alone can be accomplished.
In this Canadian Baptists and Episco
palians will probably join. A similar
movement In Australia promises a sim
ilar result. The proposed union in this ,
country between Congregatlonallsta, 1

National Art Federation.
Tentative plans are being made to
form in this city a national art fed
eration to Include within its fold about
300 societies composed of painters,
sculptors, architects, artisans and oth
ers having artistic alms who have
been invited to send delegates to the
proposed convention. The exact date i coating of cement
has not yet been fixed, but it Is be
lieved the convention will be called
sonic time in January.
During the convention there will be
on exhibition in the Corcoran Gallery
of Art a very complete collection of
the works of Augustus St. Gandens
and a national exhibition of American
For a National University.
That Washington, as the seat of the
federal government, also should be
the seat of a great national university,
at which all the states should be rep
resented on an advisory council, was
advocated here at the closing session
of the thirteenth annual meeting of
the National Association of State Uni
versities. President Edward J. James of the
University df Illinois, as spokesman
for a bill now pending in congress to
provide for such a university, won
over many of his fellow college presi
dents In support of the movement.
The purpose of the proposed university
is to provide for the higher instruction
aud training of men and women for
posts of Importance and responsibility
In the public service of the federal
government or of states and for such
professions as may require a higher
training. The bill provides for the ap
propriation of $500,000 with which to
establish the initial equl;"ne!it of the
Boxed With the President.
J. J. Parker, an amateur athlete of
St. Paul, who boxed with itoosevelt
on a ranch twenty-seven years ago,
called on the president a few days ago.
Mr. Parker brought a letter from
Frank U. Kellogg, the antitrust law
yer, but It was unnecessary, for the
president recognized his caller as soon
as he espied him "as the man with
whom he boxed several times on a
western ranch.
"I called merely to pay respects and
was cordially received," said Mr. Par
ker. "I don't want a thing in the
world In politics, but the president
gave me a picture of each of the three
younger children, and I prize thorn
more than any otlice."

Do not use the post until it has had

to save cement. The outside surface
of the finished part should be smooth,
