Mr. Chapin returns to the Lyceum
platform fresh from his dramatic tri
umph as leading man in New York's
principal theatres, in his own play
"liincoln," where seventy-three per
formances wer© given. Of this great
drama the dramatic critic of the
"World Today Magazine," says:
"One Strangely Beautiful Event"
"One strangely beautiful event in

Benjamin Chapin's marvelous 'Lin
cola' drama. A play defying all the
superstitions of the stage, and pre
senting the most idolized public char
acter in American, history, seemed
destined to immediate failure and
quick rebuke from the press. The
opening performance (was a triumph.
To those students of history, present
at the opening performance, for whom
Lincoln has been a topic of careful
study, the characterisation was the
most impelling and wonderful thing
that any playwright or actor could
achieve- It was a creation justly true
to the great soul of the Emancipator
himself. Gentleness, tenderness, sim
plicity and masterfulness were there,
dominating quietly every moment of
a drama which proved to be a com-

Dr. S. Parkes Cadman is the pastor

of preachers. His collegiate course

Dr. Cadman is special lecturer at
Yale, Harvard, Amherst and other
colleges and universities, and he has

At the annual conference of the
Methodist church of the state held in
Williston, last week, Rev. Alex Karr
read his fourth and last annual re
port of work done as superintendent
af the work of-raising the fund.
That Mr. Karr has been able, in
spite of short crops and other handi-
tended to me by both the pastors and
the people of the church, as also by
the public generally.
On every field visited a genuine in
terest and enthusiasm have been
manifested in our undertaking and
our people have responded with the
most open-handed liberality. If the
work has in any sense failed it has
not been their fault.
I am frequently assured by parties
who subscribed liberally to the cause
during the early part of the canvass
have already done so. I cite three
instances, in one of which a gift of

in the third, $100 has also been in

During the recent years the in

made it vastly more difficult for the
average minister to support his fam

quite impossible for him to provide
anything either for the proverbial
rainy day or for his own old age.
The average salary of ministers, of
all denominations, excluding those
holding official position, and those
serving in the 125 largest cities, is
$573 per year—an amount so small as
to seem incredible. The Christian

and the larger part of the burden is
borne by the clergy in the small
towns and rural districts, though
these men have produced and will
continue to produce by far the great

•has not "been popular—every other
enterprise of the church has had its
special representatives and its en
thusiastic propagandists. Not so this
one. A most reprehensible degree of
ignorance as to the real conditions in
relation to the needs of the Confer
ence Claimants has hitherto prevail
ed, not only among the laity tout in
the ranks of the ministry as well. My
special work has made it imperative
-upon me to acquaint myself with the
facts. My knowledge of these facts
imposes upon me a sacred duty, the
evasion of which would but tend to
perpetuate the crying injustice of the
past and effectually fasten upon this
conference a system which would
continue to work hardship in the fu
ture as it has done hitherto-
Our general secretary, Dr. Hinge
ley, reports that throughout the
church, at large, during 1910-11, by
reason of our failure to carry out the
disciplinary requirement as to the
pro-rating of all claims for ministerial
support, that the men in the active
ranks have appropriated, for their
own use and benefit, the immense
sum of $68,317, every cent of which
legally belonged to the conference
claimants. North Dakota has been
guilty with the other conferences in
this respect.
I believe that the time has arrived
for this conference to go on, record,
definitely and decisively, as to the
rights of our superannuates, widows
and orphans. Sense not sentiment—
should hereafter determine our ac
tions. Unless, after careful investi
gation and discussion of all the facts
in the case, we enact effective legis
lation insuring impartial and liberal
treatment to every claimant, this
whole matter will become a fruitful
source of dissension and a permanent
bone of contention.
For four years I have made a care

fairs, during which time I have also
been in a position to acquire an inti
