Riverside Church, Near Ash
ton, Selected As. The Next
annual meeting tof-the v Wilmington
Baptist Associatibn, which was held at
Wallace, N. C, have returned to the
city and report an unusually pleas
ant time. The meeting was a success
from every standpoint. Twenty or
more Wilmington Baptists, including
the three Baptist ministers of the city,
were in attendance. Just before ad
journment the Riverside church, near
Ashton, N. C., was decided on as the
next meeting place? ..
The matter, of securing an evangel
ist to assist the Various pastors in con
ducting revival services was one of
the mpst important matters discussed
and although definite action was not
taken as regarding this matter, it was
referred to the executive committee
with full power toact.
Considerable discussion was engage
ed in as ta whether,, an evangelist
should be appointed at once or the
matter delayed for the time being and
as the matter , now stands the com
mittee is empowered to ' name such
a man at once or to wait until the end
of the year. It is thought, however,
that no appointment will be made un
til later. It is highly probable that
the executive committee will begin
casting about immediately in atr ef
fort to find some one capable Of carry
ing on this work.
Yesterday afternoon's session was
featured by an address by Rev, John
Jeter Hurt,jastor of the First Baptist
churchr oiT "Christian . Education."
Others to address the meeting were:
Dr." Charles Brewer, Meredith Col

ships, believed to be British vessels,
are again active in territorial walers
of the Philippines and half a dozen inter-island
vessels have been overhaul,

interference either with passengers,
