Report No. 1, from the Committee on
Obanges of Economy, in regard to the name
of the church, and the substitute offered for
the same, were then taken up.
The call for the previous question on the
adoption of the first resolution under con-
sideration having been sustained, od yester-
day, the question at once occurred on the
resolution, whether the title of the church
should be changed. On vote, the resolution
was adopted.
On motion of Rev. W. M. Rush, the ses-
sion was .prolonged utitil the ()onferende

There still being no selection, a vote was

The latter name was lost, and then the sub-

also be the pleasure of the College of Bish-

allowed them to do so; and that to place
the name before them in these dreamstan-
ces would justify the house in proceeding at
once to his election by a risiDg VOte, avoid-

Books and Periodicals, granting the request
of the Christian Union *Church that they
have the privilege of printing a hymn book
from the stereotype plate of the M. E.
Ohurch South hymn book, and in regard to
the report of the book agent, was taken up ,
and adopted.
On motion of Rev. A. H. R@dford, the
Book Committee were empowered to settle
with Rev. R. Abbey, Financial Secretary.
Bishop Paine took the Chair.
On motion of Rev. Dr. W. A. Smith,
report No.1 from the Committee on the
SuPliort of the Ministry was taken up.
Rev. J.E. Evans moved that the report
be taken up item by item.
Rev. J. B. Smith moved that the report
be laid over until to-morrow, in order to
give members an opportunity to more care-
fully examine it. On vote, the latter mo-
tion prevailed,
On motion of Rev. J. E. Evans, Report
No. 2 from the Committee on Changes of
Economy*was taken up. The report has
reference to the reception of members into
the Church, with a form therefore, and the
regulations with regard to social meetings.
Rev. J. E. Evans moved that the report
be taken up item by item. Agreed to.
The first item providing that candidates
for admission into the church shall be ex-
amined by the pastor and a committee, was
taken up.
A minority report on the same subject,
differing mainly from the majority report
that an examining committee is optional,
was also taken up,
Rev. Dr. Thomas O. Summers said he
had studied this subject about as closely as
he had been able to study any subject.-
He had had it on hand a number of years,
and he had heard what members have said
and proposed at various times in reference
to the matter, and he was afraid that we are
going to have something complex in the
book of Discipline. He wanted everything
brief, rather a directory than anything else,
taking it for granted that the preacher will
know how to doit with general directions.
You canny put down in the Discipline a
law that will do for every time and every
place. The precise form you must leave to
the minister, and the simplest thingyoucan
put in will be the best. The Rev.
read a form that had been adopted by the
Mobile Conference in regard to this matter,
which he presented as a substitute.
Substitutes were also presented by Red.
P. P. Neely, Rev. H. F. Johnson, Rev. Dr.
J. B. Walker and Rev. J. O. Keener.
Rev. Dr. A. L. P. Green said he great-
ly preferred the report of the minority to
the report of the majority, but he did not
feel exactly satisfied with anything that has
beeupresentedonthissubject. Thecondition
of admission into the church, was a sincere
desire to flee from the wrath to come, and
be saved from sin. He held that the expe-
rience of grace never has been a condition
of membership into our church, and he
boped never ,would be. He thought that
? glory of Methodism largely enlisted in
is very condition, and that it was one of
the most important principles adopted by
Mr. Wesley, this same condition. He
thought we oughiko guard and protect it.
He was opposed to a probationary state, ex-
ther long or short; he was opposed to a com-
mittee to examine persons who wished to be
members of the Church. It has worked
badly in other Churobes, and he did not
want any aueh element in ours. He want-
ed our system adapted to the whole human
family. He did not think there was one
case in a hundred thousand where a person
offering himself to the Church would notbe
accepted. He joined the Church when he
was nine years of age, and knew nothing
about doctrine or disciphne. He simply
knew that he wanted to serve God and get
to Heaven, and get into the Church. He
did tw d ernachmeryHwhich the

it just as simple as we can work it, so that

to him. He wanted it impressive, so that
they could feel that they have come among
us, and that when they areinsidethe church
they.can never get out unless they are turn-
ed out. He thought there was no necessia
ty for having much machinery in it; sim-
ply let the preacher take themin when they
come for admission.
Rev. G. W. D. Harris, of the Memphis
Conference, said he was pleased to hear

Dr. W. A. Smith said that one of the re-
strictive rules anys you shall not alter our
general rules. Ope of our general rules
says that the only condition for admission
into thipsociety is a desire to flee from the
wash re come, and to save your soul.-
p.gen you make this a. condition for chil.
dren, servants and other persons that know
nothing in the world about theology, re ar-

The Conference then adjourned with a
Twenty-Third Day.
The Conference met pursuant to ad
journment, Bishop Andrew in the chair.
The opening devotional exercises were
conducted by Rev.J.E.Evans, of the Geor-
gia Conference.
The minutes of the last session were read
and adopted.
Bishop Pierce took the chair.
Rev.0, O. Callaway, reserve of the Mo-
bile Conference, was recognized as delegate
in place of W. M. Wightman.
Rev. R. Alexander, of the Texas Com
ference, presented the following resolixtion,
which was adopted:
Resolved, That the entire German w>rk
in Texas shall be connected with the Texes
Conference, and that the Chairman of the
Committee on Missions is requested to ad-

of the report was adopted.

The report from the Committeeon Bound
aries was taken up, recommending, in ref_

man ministers and members in Texas, that
we tender to them our sympathy, fosterin
care, and all the material aid in our power
and recommending in a memo
rial asking that territory in Ohio, Indiana
and Illinois, be annexed to our annual con-
ferences, that such churches or societies as
are now or may hereaiter be organised in
any section of country natunderourecolesi_
astical jurisdiction, and which wish to be
united with us id church fellowship, may
be connected with our annual conferences
and formed into separateannualconferences

Report adopted. *
Another report from the Committee on
Boundaries was then taken up.
The first item, recommending the divis-
ion of the Texas Conference, and that the
new conference thus formed be called the
North West Texas Conference, was adopted,
The second item recommending that be-
tween the Western Virginia. and Baltimore
Conferences the original western boundary
line of the Bakimore Conference be estab-
. listed, and also a mindrity report Yecom-
; mending that the Alleghany Mountains be
I estabhabed as a boundary line between the
I stro Conferences, were taken up. A dis-
cussionof considerable length ensued, Rev.
W Kennedy, Rev W W Bennett, and Rev
S Hargies, contending for the minority re
port, and Rev ER Veitch, Rev N Wilson,
Rev Bishop Early, Rev JH Lina, and Rev
8 Register, arguing in favor of the major-
ity report. One of the principal arguments
I used by those in favor of the majority re_
port, wasthat it is impossible to designate
a definite boundary line by the Alleghany
Mountains. Those mountains are frequent-
ly scattered in spurs and ridges,. over a
width of sixty or seventy miles, interspers,
ed with fertile and settled valleys. Those
in favor of the minority report. argued that
although such is the geographical conform.
. ation of the country, these spurs and ridges

line tween the{ i cou y e irr To

them as the boundary line.
On vote, the minority report was re-
jected and majority report adopted.
The remaining items of the report were
adopted without discussion, and recommend.
ed that the original boundary line between
the Baltimore and Virginia Conferences be
re-established, except the neck of Virginia,
which should belong to the Virginia Con-
ferenee, and that the Virginia and Balti-
more Conferences have permission to form

had the money at their command to publish
as the ght to have done. He moved to
add to t resolution the following: "and

they severally adopt, shall collect and
forwa funds to the book editor or book
ent, to be employed by him, as a special

ing, illustrating and cheapening our Sunday
School literature.'>
Rev. Dr. L. Rosser proposed that a com-
mittee of three be appointed, to consist of
Dr. Summers, Dr. Huston, and any other
person that may be elected, to take this sub-
ject into consideration, and devise somoplain
in regaid to this matter, and bringit in to.
lier. Dr. T. O. Summers said he had con.
ferred wi b the Chairman of the Committee
several times, with the Book Agent, and
also with Dr. Huston, very often in regard
to this matter. He desired to says few words
in regardto thehistoryof the Sunday School
Society and its rations. 'You appointed
a Sunday SchoolobPoolety, and perhaps it was
well for on to do so, busyou did so without
making the necessary arrangements for work.
ing the machinery of it. It was then ar.
gued that there would be large contributions
to that society that would enable the Book
Agent to publish and compete with other
likeinstientions of our country. Those con.
tributions never chme into our trealmry. It
would be humiliating to enumeratetheamall
amounts that same into our treasury. It
amounted wr.ply to nothing, and he did not
suppose we gave two hundred dollars in all
for manuscripts we published for Sunday
School hooks. He had read through many
and thany a book manuscript that was indi.
genoos, and sent him, which he desired to
publish because it grew up in our own coun-
try, but he did not have the means to even
pay for the manuscript. You wanted books
illustrated and printed in nice style, when
we had not the means for doing it. You
called for books to be illustrated with wood.
puts, which illustrations alone would cost a
large amount. The book agenthad nottne
capital to invest in these publications. The
American Sundajr School Union has an in-
some of one, two, or three hundred thousand
dollars a year, gathered from all parts of the
United States. This Society, with this
large revenue, is able to publish books in
such a shape as will give them universe]
circulation. If you had given me a hun.
dred thousand dollars, as you ought to have
done I would have been able to publish
books of that sort. He sent to England,
and got a lot of little infant publications, is-
sued by the Religious Tract Society of Lon-
don. He got them at the mere cost of the
books, for there is no copyright attached to
them. You ask why we do not publish this
or that book. The answer is, because they
are copyrighted. There are hundreds of
books in the entalogueof the AmericanSun-
day School Union that are copyrighted, and
we cannot publish them at all. Then you
require costly engravings, and we had no
money for that purpose. The books we pub*
listed were mostljr reprints from English
publications. He thought that the Meth-
odist Episcopal Church, fouth, has publish-
ed the richest oatechismin the world. sThe
speaker here gave a detailed history of the
compilation and .publication of the cate-
ehisms that have beein issued by the .pub-
lishing house. He thought there was but
one addition necessary in this direction to
make the listmomplete, and that is a co.te-
chism on the Disezpline, that has been sug-
gested. The speaker said that there were
some things which could not well be venti-
lated on this Conference floor, in reference
to this question. There are ways and means
of securing Sunday School literature, which
it would not be proper to express here. He
