A Financial System Wanted-One Pro-
wo. I
As a member of the Joint Board of Finance
of the Georgia Conference, I was appointed at
1 fthe last session to devise a system to be present-
ed for its consideration and action. This would
have been done at the last session but for the
division of our territory, an event necessitating
two separate Boards of Finance and an entire
reorganization in this department. I take the
liberty now of offering my reflections to the pub-
lie, as it willgiveppportunity foran interchange
of views in advance, whereby truth may be
4 evolved, and error eliminated.
In the next Conferences there will be a new
and gotent element-a large lay delegation. To
these representatives I especially direct my re-
marks, hoping to elicit aid more than to give
The recent change in our polity gives me great
satisfaction. I hope that the long delayed a -
swer to the money problem of our economy wi 1
now be given-the introduction of a new inetor
will enable us to complete the analyers. With-
out a lay representation there were insuperable
didiculties to be encountered. These will now
Methodist preachers have usually the doubt
ful reputation of being bad financiers. Perhaps
it is true, and the fact can be readily explained.
But how could a body of energy, however wise,
devise a system of finance by their own vote, in
which they were solely interested and do thra
without the co-operation of those who alone
could give it ediciency. This is like an attempt
of the House of Lords of tbc British Parlia-
ment to make appropriations without the concur-
rence of the Houseof Commons. Delicacy for-
bade even an assertion of their full rights;
bence the low estimates hitherto for the support
of Conference beneficiaries. Even of these dis-
creditable sums, not more than one-thirde ough
have never been realized, beang discounted from
25 to 50 percent., and this for the want of sys-

In such a wide, varied territory, different sys.
tems will be needed for different latitudes.-
There is such a disparity in the cost of living
in the several Annual Conferences, so much di-
versity in intelligence, wealth and social habits,
difference too in allmate and longevity, that a
homogeneous system is impracticableandinequit
able. Without more preliminaries, I proceed
after the preacher's fashion, first giving my text
afterwards the discussion.
1. A definite number of years in the active
itinerant ministry to be passed before one is
eligible to a superannuate's relation. Eligibility
to dT d edy on years of service and
e act y.
2. All bona fde superannuates and their de-
pendents to have an absolute num-an annuity
