r L A N Fni: RAISING F.SDoWM E N T '
FUND FOR TKIN1TY Ct'I.LF.itE.
The committee appointed by the
Board of Trustees, at a called
meeting held in Kdeigh. . C.
under mt i m tian of our lat annual
conference see couf. min. p. 3-i
beg leave to .submit the billowing
plan for raiding an Endowment
Fund for Ti. aity College: ,
1. Your committee believe tli.it
an Endowment Fund o! at least .
one hundred thousand dollars
e100,000) should b' raised as soon '
as possible, and that such an En
dowment is essential to the proper .
growth and the largest prosperity j
and usefulness of the College, as
well as to the proper development
and growth of Methodist Chris
nanny m North Carolina. ,
2. In order, therefore, to secure!
this Endowment Fund, we most
earnestly recommend that a direct
and persistent appeal be. made, pub
licly and privately, to all our people
in every pastoral charge so as to
reach all our churches and Sunday
schools within the bounds of the
entire conference, in order to raise
at least one hundred thousand dol
lars (1100,000) in cash if possible, or
in cash and notes payable in ln-
8taiimentg 0f one an(i two years,
and.that this public canvass begin
the Krst of June, 1S3., and be con
tinned until this matter shall have
been effectively brought before all
onr people. And that each Pre
siding Elder and pastor shall labor
to bring to the front, in this united
effort to endow Trinity College, as
many of our laymen as possible, in
order to interest and arouse all our
people to proper effort in hehalt of
this great work: proviLl, every
body shall De at liberty to give
b fore the irst of June, to this object
as much as they please.
.;. In order to facilitate the ac
complishment of this important
object, a sufficient number of
printed notes shall be sent to each
Presiding Elder and pastor to be
used by such of our brethren and
friends as may uot have the ready
cash to pay down the amounts they
are willing to donate to this En
4. All the cash raised shall be
sent forward as speedily as possi
ble to .Tas. A. Gray, Esq., Winston,
N. C Treasurer ot the Endowment
Fund, who shall receipt for the
same and also deposit, or invest
said amounts of motley, as he shall
be diree'ed by the Hoard of Trustee-:
and all notes taken shall also
be 'laced in the bands of the treas
urer of the Endowment Fund tor
safe keeping, and for collection as
thev fall due.
. The treasurer ot the Endow
ment Fuud shall pay over annually
to the treasnrer of the faculty of
Trinity College the interest which
may accrue on the Endowment
Fund, taking his receipt lor the
same, which interest shall be ap
plied exclu.-ivtdy to the payment
ot the curreir expenses ot Uu Col
lege. o. 1 ae Endowment 1 and shall
be forever held by the Hoard of
Trustees ot t he College and by their
.-ucces-ors in office and by the i. di
cers of the I'.oard and their slieee
sors in office, and by the Faea'.t.s
of Trinity College, and by the
Conference now owning, or the

ineiol'itt , and never be applied a- a
whole, or iu any of its parts, to any
object or use whatsoever, but the

w.is intended by its contributors.
7. In order to secure the Endow
ment Fund ami the annual pay
ment of the interest the treasuier
of the Endowment Fuud shall cxe
cute and deliver into the bauds ot

The meeting was called to order by
C. E. Foy. Esq.. and Dr. E. W. Ward
was called to the chair.
Mr. C. E. Foy was called npon to ex-
plain the object of the meeting which
he proceeded to do by reading the act
of the General Assembly incorporating
the Eaat Carolina Land and Railway

quested the re-reading of section 22 of
eue original act in reierence io BUD-
scriptions by towns and townships.

ting two secretaries and suggested D. I.
The motion as amended was adopted.
The list of incorporators was called
and the chair declared a quorum pres
ent and the meeting ready for business
Mr. C. E. Foy said that he thought
the first thing to do was to subscribe
310.000 to the capital stock and to show
his faith in the project he would take
one-tenth of that amount.
The chair declared the books open for
While the subscriptions were being
taken, Mr. John Pearce arose and stated
that he and others of Jones county were
bitterly (Opposed to the town and town
ship subscription clauses of the charter
and if there is no way of getting rid of
those clauses they would withdraw from
the meeting and leave it without a
Mr. T. A. Green said he understood
the clause to mean that fhe townships
could not subscribe without the consent
of the people.
Mr. H. C. Foscue said he understood
the clause to mean that the commis
sioners could fix the amoupt, but would
like to know if they could say that no
subscription could be made.
Mr. Simmons explained the clause as
he understood it and thought there was
sufficient protection to the people of the
townships in regard to voting subscrip
tions. The matter was further disousaed
without any definite conclusions.

site amount of stock bad been sub

The point was raised here as to who
was entitled to vote. A reference to
charter showed that a meeting of the
subscribers to the capital stock should
be called for the purpose of organiza
tion. Mr. T. A. Green moved that a com
mittee on subscriptions be appointed
and a meeting of the subscribers be
called at some future time for the pur
pose of organization. Seconded by Dr.
A general discussion followed partici
pated in by Messrs. T. A. Green, F. M.
