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 from Welsh. [CONTINUED FROM LAST WEEK.] GETTYSBI UR31. 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 vention 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 ternoon. 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 :[coxcWIu), o frOUTB PIAOE] YELLOW FEVER SIS WIPED OUT NO VESTAGE OF THE DISEASE NOW RE MAINS FOR TREATMENT IN NEW ORLEANS.
