To the unbiased observer i looks
very much that way.
If party pledges art not binding on
the nominee why should they be bind

That is the stand taken by the sub

started a movement to put out an in

case Mr. Colquitt fis nominated and
submission carries and he refuses to
carry out the pledges of the party as
expressed at the polls and aaoptea in

Mr. Colquitt has already declared
that in case submission was carried

platform of the uemocratic primaries.
Now comes the submission -wing of
the party and says to Mr. Colquitt

nominated, they will be absolved from
their pledqes to support the nominee

Says United Efforts Must Be

the Unity of Christianity.
Edinburgh, Scotland, June 16 A let
ter from Theodore Roosevelt expressing
sympathy with the movement and re
gret at his inability to be present, was
lead at today's session of the world
missionary conference. The communi
cation aroused much enthusiasm. The
letter says that "in missionary wot J:,
above all other knds of Christian work,
it is imperative to remember that a
divided Christendom can only imper
fectly bear witness to the essential
unity of Christianity.
The letter saj s unity for world- evan
gelization will prevent laying too much
stress on the difference of doctrine.
Commission Makes Report.
Progress of Christian missionary

beginnings to Its present state wide iit-
J velopment was described today to the
. conference iu session uere bv the c om-

S mission on "The Church in the Mission
Field." The report was presented by
the Rev. Dr. J. Campbell Gibson, of
the foreign mission committee of the
English Presbyterian church, who is j
chairman of the commission.
"It is perhaps one of the most en
couraging signs," says the report, "both
of the progress of mission work Itself
and the advance which has been made
in the thought of the church at borne
In regard to it that "The Church In the
Mission Field" now occupies so promi
nent a position in the discussion of mis
sion questions and methods. It Is easy
to recall the time when the work of
foreign missions was commonly regard-
j of a small, forlorn hope into the midst
of great masses of darkness and super
stitlon. from which very little could be

The Enclish Ideas.
"The missionaries work conceived to
be a continual struggle with heathen
ism, and at the best the converts gain
ed Avere thought of as little groups of
unimportant people, whose conversion
was gratifying for the sake of the in
dividuals gained, but who had no Im
portant share in the missionary enter
prise as a whole.
"Now, happily, the church at home
sees further into the true state of the
matter, and the most Important general
conclusion which we can draw from the
replies made to our inquiries In all j
parts of the world Is that thenceforth
this view must be entirely abandoned.
We have now to think of the church
in the mission field not as a by-product
of mission work, but as Itself far the
most efficient element in the Christian
propaganda. The words of Christian
people, spoken to their own countrymen
In all lands, are the most efficient, as
well as the most extensive, preaching
of the gospel, and their lives are every
where the most conspicuous and con
clusive evidence of Its truth.
Povterful Element.
"In many of the greater mission fields
the Christian people are now recogniz
ed as a definite community whae so
cial life and ideals, as well as their per
sonal faith and character, are already
becoming a powerful element in the re
shaping of national life. They are ev
erywhere subjected to a watchful
scrutiny on the part of the non-Christian
communities, and there seems to be
a general acknowledgment that the
life thu. jealously
watched affords a
real vindication of the spiritual power
of the religion which they profess.
"In short, the church on which we
report presents Itself no longer as an
Inspiring but distant ideal, nor even as
a tender plant or a young child, appeal
ing to our compassion and nurturing
care. We see It now an actual church
in being, strongly rooted, and fruitful
In many lands. The child has, In many

reaching, maturity; and Is now both
fitted and willing, perhaps In a few
cases too eager, to take upon Itself its
full burden of responsibility and serv
ice." Work In Detail.

which is hereto attached, to the offi

sets out in a brief and concise manner
the difficulties that would naturally
be incurred by this city in financing the
water plant In the event It was acquired
by the city as contemplated under the
impending bond election. Although a
considerable space of time has expired.
I have not yet received a communica
tion from the water company or its of
ficials answering this communication
or stating or suggesting any manner
In which the city could properly finance
the water plant in the event of its ac
quisition. Therefore, I consider it essential that
these facts be placed before you and
that the citizens of El Paso be made
acquainted with them previous to the
election so that they would be in pos
sesion of all the facts bearing tipon
the bond election and acquisition of
the water plant by the city.
