Speech of Presentation is Made by J.
I. Finney, Editor of The Herald
Will Be Placed in Archives of the
Tennessee Conference.
An interesting event of the morn
ing session of the Methodist Confer
ence today was the presentation of
'a gavel from the first Methodist
' church building ever erected south
of Duck river. The gavel was made
from a piece of timber from the
church at old Pisgah near Hampsnire
, which was founded by John Akin in
j 1807.
The gavel was presented by J. I.
Finney, editor of The Herald, and
was accepted by Bishop Kilgo In be
half of the conference in a feeling
response.
The gavel was fashioned from the
timber by the Vaughan Manufactur
ing Company of this city. In pre
senting the gavel, Mr. Finney said:
"When the hardy pioneers blazed
a pathway through the trackless wil
derness from the Appalachian moun
tains westward there accompanied'
them often with rifle in one hand and
Bible in the other, the Methodist
preachers. They were frequently the
first and always among the first, spir
itual comforters of the new settlers.
No hardships were too great to deter
them; no privations so severe that
they were not overcome in their zeal
to carry the gospel to every corner
of the new and wonderful land. 1
"Too much could not be said in '
praise of the hardy Methodist pioneer
preachers who braved every danger
and willingly submitted to every sac-
