Is also meeilng with good success in
I his grand work.
Through all, means ahovo mention
ed our church has not only changed
rank in ItoKohurg, but also in the
Oregon conference. The following
comparison will make this clearly
evident. In 1!M8 we wen; in a class
of the following charges , viz:
(iron wsvi lie, Gardiner, Independence,
Marsh field. Klamath Kails, LaurcL
vood, Woodhurn, Lents, Sheridan. In
l!M)!i, we find our charge rated with
Albany, Collude Grove, Ashland, Fo
rest Grove. Illllrfhoro, Oregon City
and the following churches of Port
IhiicI, Montavlllu, Selwood and Cen
tral. We have great reason today for
(banking our heavenly Father for his
past blessings to us as a people, uud
our hearts :diould beat with the
joy of anticipation as we look out
through tho doord of opportunity,
upon the fields already white for the
haivest. Wo should also be thank
ful for the success ami outlook of
I ho other branches of God's great
army fn this field, for H. has other
sheep that are not of this fold. Dr.
Ilenery Ostrom. one of America's
greatest evangelists, says that we
should not have our denominational
fence so high I hat wo can not roach
over to shake hands with on- neigh
bor on the other side. Let ns all be
familiar with the closing paragraph
of the historical statement of our
church as found In the discipline,
which Ik ns follows:
"The sole ohpect of the rules, regu
lations and usages of the Methodist
FOplscopft! chinch is that it may ful
fill to tho end of time Its original di
vine vocation as a leader In evun
gcllzathm. In all true reforms and In
the promotion of frnlermtl relations
among all branches of the one church
of Jesus Christ, with whom It Is a
co-worker In tho spirit mil conquest
of the world for the Son of God,"
Let us show our appreciation for past
bleHsimis by moro faithful work In
the ful ure. Let us so watch ami pray
that we may overcome the world, the
flesh and the devil L"t us live such
holy lives that wo will bj a rebuke
to sinners and a comfort to faints.
Let us so hear witness to tho puffer
Ing of Jesus that many will be led o
repeiilniue Ifnd salvation, during the
year. This is tho New YedrV greet

Congressman Haw ley Asks for Many
AVashlngton, Dec. 81. Represent
ative Hawley had a conference with
the chief engineer regarding the do
sired appropriations for Oregon Im
provements in rivers and harbors.
Mr. ilawley expects a favorable re
commendation from the department
for an appropriation of $500,000 for
Coos bay, $300,000 for the Willa
mette locks, and sufficient sums for
the removal of bars and obstructions
in the Coquille river, and that the
government will co-operate with the
local Interests for the Improvement
of the Sillslaw bar. Mr. Ilawley to
day secured the promise of Dr. Wiley
that an Investigation will bo made
immediately of the practice of mis
branding salmon. A" great injury Is
worked upon Oregon fish Interests
through the misbranding of Inferior
products as Oregon brands.
At a meeting of western represent
atives held today to consider plans
for the rapid completion of govern
ment Irrigation projects, Mr. Hawley
submitted the draft of a measure au
thorizing the secretary of the Inte
rior to continue to completion the un
finished projects, and the secretary of
trie treasury to Issue treasury war
rants, bearing 4 per cent Interest In
payment of such work, warrants pay
able after five and within ten years.
The committee will probably frame a
measure along the general lines of
Mr. Hawley's plan.
