Dear Brethren—We have been in a
four years’ march and will soon reach
headquarters, make our report and
await the orders of the church. Our
Journey has been pleasant, here and
there overshadowed by flying clouds,
but we have not made it with un
As in every other campaign we
have seen the faithful fall, yet we
have gone forward in the strength oi
our cause and with faith in God from
one conquest to another, never faint
ing or wavering.
The primal y duty of the church Is
the salvation of souls. On that line
God has given us wonderful success
each year, our ministers seemed to
be Imbued with the spirit of revival,
and we have received the signal oi
His approval In many Instances, so
that the numerical strength of His
kingdom has been largely increased
in the Fifth Episcopal District. We
give God the glory.
Materially we have been equally
blessed; new churches have been
built, old ones remodeled, comfortable
and tasty parsonages erected, and the
temporal economy of the church so
improved that the work has been put
upon a firmer and more permanent
basis. No general interest has been
neglected; ou the contrary, there has
been an increase in every department,
not by spasmodic effort, but by a
gradual and systematic growth in lib
erality and willingness to contribute
to God’s caußC on the part of both
pastor and people.
The Dollar Money System of the A.
M. E. church is generally considered
be the best fiuanetal plan in Melh
41am. Through it we pay the salar
ies of the bishops, general officers, and
assist missionary, church extension,
publication and educational depart
ments. In addition to this, it also as
sists superannuated preachers who
have not received their allowance, and
widows and orphans of pastors.
With reference to the Church Ex
tension department, it is well to re
member that several of the churches
in our district have received substan
tial ad therefrom by donation or loan;
and In several cases the loan has been
unusually large, owing to disaster or
Spurred on by these considerations
In addition to the promptings of
church loyalty, we ought to make a
reasonable Increase in our dollar
money collections over IMM, and I
THE STATESMAN, DENVER, COLORADO
urge you to do so. The presiding eld
ers In council decided that an increase
of 10 per cent. Is a reasonable re
quest. I am confident that you will
regard this request and me up to It.
You will remember that the travel
ing expenses of the General Confer
ence delegates are to be paid by their
respective Annual Conferences from
moneys coming from the several
pos|Apii ojojojaqj out! no.\ s.'Sjsq.i
to raise the amount assessed to you
by the last session of our Conference
for traveling and sustena lon fund and
report the same at the next conven
The Forward Look.
And now we come to the last ap
peal from the Quadrennium.
I>r. H. B. Parks. Secretary of Mis
sions, informs us that or. Easter Day
our collections for 1907 have excelled
all previous ones In our district. The
returns for Children's Day has not
been reported by Drs. Cliappelle and
Watson. However, 1 must believe that
you have made the usual record in
these departments. The second Sun
day in August has been decided upon
as Educational Day and to make a
special effort for Western University.
Bishop Tyree and the Tenth Epis
copal District are making an effort to
raise SIO,OOO for Paul Quinn College,
$4,800 of which they have in hand~al
ready. Bishop Coppln Informs me
that at the last commencement at
Allen University, Columbia, 9. C-.
there was placed upon the table $5,-
000. Bishop Turner says that the
men of Georgia collected for Morris
Brown College $3,800. Bishop Salter
states that the men of Mississippi
raised for Campbell College $2,300.
The men of the Fifth District cannot
afford to ire behind. 1 am sure that
Western University lies neur your
hearts, and I believe you are willing
to make one strong effort to raise $2,-
500 on Educational Day. This can be
done if you will increase your educa
tional collections a few dollars.
