The Biohop stated that on Friday, to day, he would call for candidates for Elder 's orders and would ask that they engaxe in fasting and prayer before be ing ordained. The case of Rev. John M. Poole, who was on the list of candidates for Dea con orders and whoee name was pasted over in calling the list, waa taken up. Kiv. John R. Brooks made a state meet in re.-arj to Mr. Ptole's health He is an excellent preacher and a good man. but had not been able to do the work assigned him the past year and is still unable for work. He asked th?t he be continued on trial. Rev. . A. Sharpe made a statement in support of the motion to continue on trial. He knew the brother, knev that he waj earnest and willing and hoped to be able t work. He thought it would be a good thing if Some brother would go around among the members of the conference and make him up a little purse, or a large purse if posdibla. to help him while unable to work. Rev. Mr. Brooks: "If he will come over thia way ha can get So Oo." Rev. W. H. Bobbilt thought if he could be appointed a second man on a circuit it might properly dispo-e of the matter. Rev. Dr. Burton apoka against the motion to continue Mr. Poole. If the brother Is unable to work on account of physical or mental troubles the brethren would help him, but it was not right to encumber the appointments by continu ing one unable to work: neither was it juat to the brother himself. He moved that be be diacontinued. The Bishop regarded it as an extra ordinary case. He could not while on trial be placed on the supernumerary list, nor could he be superanuated , and he did not think it a prudent course to continue one on trial who was unable to iio the work assigned him. The motion to discontinue w-as adopted. The following communication was read by the Secretary and referred ti the Board of Missions: T and times when the p-rvic liarly thanksgiving. 1'rai.t giving are as import ir.t in of God as prayar.

Guthrie his application for superanuated relations was referred to the committee on conference relations. Rev. N. A. Crisp was called, and Ruv. T. W Guthrie undo a statement in regard to charges that had been brought against him. which were inves tigated and not sustained. He moved that his case bo referred to the com mittee on conference relations for su peranuated relations. Motion adopted . The Bishop introduced Rev. Thoe. II. Law- district superintendent of tho American Bible Society. Mr. Law ad dressed the conference for some min utes on the subject of Bibles and the work which tho Society waa doing to distribute it and get it into the hands of everybody. He told them how cheap they were making the Bible and sug gested how the ministers could aid in distributing it Rey. F. L. lieid moved that the Sec retary and the assistant secretaries be appointed a committee to take into con sideretion the publication of the min utes of tho conference . Adopted The Bishop introduced Dr. LafTerty of the Richmond Christian Arlvocnt ". resolution was to pass the second Toea wheQ the Doctor asceaded the platform uay in Jsunai, wou.u uuv uc nuivsuic o Bv,ant ,uQf ha day, as there would not be time to hare ufficient notice given, and it would only be observed in a few towns, Dr. Burton: Will you suggest a day? I will accept it. Dr Bobitt: I am opposed to the reso lution. Dr. Burton. I will make it the second Tuesday in February. Rev. L. W. Crawford asked that the resolution be put in writing so that the oonfertnee would know exactly w hat it is doing. Dr. Bobbitt was as much in favor of fasting and prayer as Dr. Burton, but he did not think the condition of things as portrayed by Dr. Burton existed. He therefore opposed the resolution. Dr. Burton again ured the resolution with much warmth. Had no: biotbei Bobbitt read the papers? Thc-ie was not corn enough made in Lis section to give the people bread until March. Dr. Bob bitt lived in the monctain; and had not heard of these thin . Dr. Bobbitt arose. Dr. Burton. "MY- sir, I won't be in terrupted." ITe proceeded to give an account of the destructive floods on the Roanoke river and the great destitution that prevailed in that section. Dr. Bobbitt: ''Bishop Granbery Are you through Dr. Burton?'' Dr. Burtcn : "No tdr, I'm not through. " Rev. J, T. Gibbs aiose to a point of order. "I am not out of order." sidd Dr. Burton. The Bishop: "Let the point of ordtr be stated . The point of order was that Dr. Bur ton and Dr. Bobbitt were discussing a resolution that had not been seconded. The resolution was seconded. Dr. Bobbitt secured the floor and again insisted that there was not such a condition of things in North Carolina as portrayed by Dr. Burton. He had read the papers and didn't live in the mountains the Roanoke river had suffered greatly by the loss cf their crops by the fresh ets, but the State at large had been abundantly blessed. We had just held Thanksgiving services on yesterday in acknowledgment of the gracious bless ings we have enjoyed during the year. He could not vot- for the resolution in that shape. The question was put and the resolu tion was declared carried. A division was called for. Dr. Black hoped that the r-- ,: utioi would nctte rejected. It was suggested by some member that if the resolution was rej -c:-?d the action of the conference might b.; mis construed . Dr. Burton stated his moliou, that the second Tuesday in February next be set aside as a day of fasting and prayer, and that all the churches of the conference be requested to observe that day as such. The vote was taken upon ih? division and the resolution was adopted. Dr. Burton's second resolution was that a committee of seven be appointed to prepare a pastoral address. A vote was taken and the resolution was declared adopted. A division was called for. Dr. Burton said if they weru going to hang on it that way he would tnake a speech, and he prooeeied to giffe lai-s reasons why the resolution ought to be adopted. A vote was taken upon the division and the resolution was rejide J. At this point several announces were made by members of various commit tees. A communication was read contain ing an extract from the minutes of tho o-al ministers conference and a request was no stranger to the cenference. He entertained them for fifteen or twenty minutes in a style that showed the goodness of hs heart and the great love he has for North Carolina Question 12 was taken up, viz; What trayeling preachers are elected elders 'i V .
