BALTIMORE C. E. CONVENTION
Report of the Twenty-Second leter
national Chlristian Endeavor Conven
tion, Held at Balltimore, Md., July 5
10, 1905, by Geo. II. Maul, Delegate
[CONTINUED FROM LAST WEEK.]
Saturday.-Saturday was a holi
day and two excursions were planned:
one to Washington, the other to Get
tysburg. I went to Gettysburg and
we had a very nice trip. Dr. Hill
described the excursion as a celebra
tion 142 miles long, with a continuous
performance. There were two train
loads, of about 1200 endeavorers.
Each state represented at the con
vention, had some of its delegates on
the trains. Reaching Gettysburg at
12:30 o'clock, the delegates immediate
ly took carriage and proceeded to
East Cemetry Hill on the federallines,
where Dr. Hill addressed them, while
they remained in their seats in the
conveyances. He is at his best on
such occasions and the eloquent ad
dress taught the lessons of the battle
and the war.
Sunday morning.--I attended church
at the state headquarters. The pastor
heartily welcomed us and said that if
we came back some time after the con
vention, be would guarantee it would.
cost us nothing and our stay in the
city would be made very pleasant.
I attended the "Mens" meeting at
the armory in the afternoon. Rev.
W. E. Biederwolf, of Monticello, Ind
spoke. Men were swept off their feet
and sobbing and trembling rushed to
the front of the hall where they stood
promising to try and lead a better
life. This outburst of feeling was un
expected as there had been no inten
tion of making the service one of re
vival. The scene at its close was so
stirring that it will remain forever in
the memories of those present.
The great hall was swept with a
wave of religious emotion. At least
half a thousand men. not Christian
Endeavorers, and many of them not
on the rolls of any church, were en
gulfed in it. Mr. Win. Shaw, who
has attended all the conventions ex
cept two, in the last twenty-four years.
declared that it was the greatest lMens'
meeting in the history of the order.
I will give you a few sentences from
Mr. Riederwolf's speech:
"High life leans to fast life, fast life
is the macadamized road tolhell. Life
is a battle and there is no room for
brainless dudes. It takes a man to
fight it. It's a great thing to be a
man. A man is the best thing God
can do, He is not always the man we
see today, for he is oftirnes little better
than the little boy's definition of a
man: "An animal split on one end
and walks on the split end."
'The young individual with the high
collar and a cane thinks he is a man
and that the most correct way to let
the public know it is to smoke a cigar
et and punch a pool ball, But you
are not a man. You are acyplher with
the rim left off."
His pictures were startlingly vivid.
He said 'that a man who used God's
seventh and sacred day in a way to
please himself, after God had ziven
him six days in which to do work and
and have pleasure, was like the man
who steals a man's seventh and last
dollar when the man had already giv
en him six.'
He pleaded with the intemperate man
and scored the gambler. He said that
a gambler was the meanest, lowest
and most contemptible thing that
passed,for a man, and of all things
that drew breath under the sun. He
said that the man who was given to
profanity and made no attempt to
cease from it, was low grained in his
fiber and was not a gentleman. He
paused here and said: "You are not
having any trouble in understanding
me are you?"
As the crowd passed out from that
wonderful meeting, the choir sang
"God be with you 'till we meet again."
Monday Morning-Last day of con
Monday was the last, but by no
means the least day of the convention.
The Baltimore convention will be
remembered as the best, the most dra
matic in feature, the wettest the hottet
and the happiest.
"Recognition morning" was a new
feature on the program. Dr. Hill pre
sided at this session and Mr. Jacobs
led the singing for the last time, as he
was to return to New York in the aft
Enthusiasm bubbled over at this
session and there was room for it.
Nothing like it had gone before. The
morning began with jollitication. Pre
ceeding the opening of the meeting the
delegations from the various states,
especially those that were seeking the
