it is considered t hat Nor t !i Carolina
has every important mineral within

she h.vs every variety ot soil lor
every variety ot crops, troin wheat
to cotton; that she lias every variety
of climate, from the sunny Southern

peak of the Appalachian range: that

her climate better than the West,

RiCHAloNl'. May 10. In the M. E.
(leneral Conference today Dr. M. P.
Chapman, of Mi-suri. introduced a
preamble and resolution in relation to
the Confe ieration of the Methodist
l lpiscopal Church South and the Method
ist Episcopal Churcli Nonh. The pre
amble sets forth in substance that the
two churches have a common history
and preach the same truths: thereore,
that this General Conference f hall elect
a committee of seven, four cf whom
shall be clerical and three lay delegates, .
who shall meet a like committee from
tho Northern Methodist Church in '
looking to the reunion of the two
churches. The resolution further sets ;
forth that it is a sin and folly for two
Methodist churches to occupy the same
Dr. Chapman, in his earnest advocaey
of this resolution, said that in his State
the sin and folly of the matter had been i
observed: that he has seen in a small .
town of 400 or 500 inhabitants, two ;
Methodist churches raieing altar against
altar a waste of men and money and a
waBte of the forces of our Christianity. '
The brethren in the South, ho argued. I
have not this thing to contend with, i
and know nothing of the clash which is j
met with in the "West, and know nothing ,
of the facts in relation to the segrega- '
linn nf Motlinrlism wViinh ia coiner on '
under the present state of affairs. Con
tinuing. Dr. Chapman said we who have
seen this state of things are tired of this
waste of men and money. Where the
Northern Methodist Church is in the as
cendancy we are dying by inches, and
where we are in thd ascendancy that
church is dying by inches.
Dr. "Whitehead, of Virginia, was in
favor of referring tho matter to the
Committee on Fraternal Correspond
ence. The question w as discussed at i
some lengm, ana nnany was rererrea
to a special committee, to be composed
of one from each Annual Cogference.
Another important matfewooking in
the same direction, was reference to an
appropriate committee the preparation
of a common hymnal that may be used
bv all different bodies of Methodism in
the country.
The Committee on Itineracy, to which
was referred the memorial from Douis-1
ville and Denver Conferences, that pro- I
vision be made for the appointment of
Evangelists, recommended nonconcur
rence. Dr. Adams, of Ga.. thought that Sai
Jones and other such men should have
nominal appointments.
fir. Messick, of Louisville, strongly
supported the report of the committe
and was in favor of allowing the system
of evangelism to stand as it is. He very
forcibly contended that the Church did
not want specialists on the subject: that j
every Methodist preacher is equally
qualified to save souls. To the name of
Methodism he, protested against such an
innovation, and when he concluded
there was a hearty "amen."
Dr. Neely, of Texas, said that these
I evangelists, as far as he knew, were run
, ning on the plan of religion made easy.
In the name of the Methodist Church
: and of our Church of God, he hoped
j that the measure would fail.
Dr. Winfield, of Arkansas, said that
if the memorial is adopted every gum
log in Methodism can and will be an
evangelist in the next five years. "Do
1 you know what a gum log is?" the Dr.
; asked: "it is one you can't do anything
' with. When I was iu Europe with
Bishop Wilson we were shown a certain
kind of tree called feminine oak. You
can't split it or do anything with it. It
is just like a woman when she will she
l will, and you can't do anything with
- her. There is but one Sam Jones in the
w orld, and there will never be but one. !
and evcrv little fellow that tries to be
irv little fellow that tries to be
like Sam Jones will fail. Y'ou can roake-i
no more on that line. He is by himself.
Y ou can have but one, and if you at
tempt to duplicate him you will surely
fail. " Laughter.
lie has turned Chicago upside down,
and any man who has the courage to
attack Chicago cannot be duplicated.
Ho is being heard in Baltimore. He is
the rnan of the century. We don't
want any evangelists among Southern ;
Methodists. We have already the !
grandest machinery in the world, j
Brethren, I'll tell you what is the mat- j
ter. You go along lifeless and dead, lie j
kindle the fire in your own churches,!
for it is time Methodist ministers were i
looking this matter in the face. !
Mr. McFerran spoke at length. He i
did not wish Sam Jones to be an evan-,
