"Methodists, like the people of all
other denominations, rallied to the
support of the government during the
struggle." said Bishop Hughes, "and
while we were giving our attention
and co-operation to patriotic activi
ties we wholly forgot the debt we
owed to the church. The influenza
epidemic, which claimed its thousands
in all parts of the L'nited States, also
was a factor which contributed ma
terially to' the declining membership."
Bishop Hughes spoke confidently of
the great centenary movement which
enriched the treasury of the church
by more than SIC8.000.000. Half of
this sum and possibly more, he said,
would be spent in evangelising the
l'nited States, while the remaining
sum would be expended abroad.

TAILORS' PROBLEM LOCAL
STRIKING JOIKXEYMEX WANT
SETTLEMENT MADE HERE.
Employers Propose San Francisco
Conference Both Sides Will
Meet Again Today.
Shall the striking joprneymeh tailors
of Portland and the employers settle
their differences locally, or shall they
settle them in conjunction with the
other tailors' unions and the other
employing tailors of the Pacific coast
cities? This is the problem which is'
standing in the way of -a settlement
of the local conflict and which prom
ises to prolong the strike further.
The local union favors settling the
strike locally and is strongly opposed
to going into any conference in which
unions and employers' associations of
the other Pacific coast cities take
part. The officers of the union de
clare that the Portland local is not
affiliated with any Pacific coast or
ganization and that the demands be
ing made by the Seattle and San
Francisco union tailors are not simi
lar to the local demands, these other
unions asking higher wage scales.
The merchant tailors here, on the
other hand, contend that the matter
should be settled by a conference in
San Francisco at which representa
tives from all the unions and all the
employers' associations on the coast
be present. This proposition was em
bodied in the recent compromise which
the employers' association here pre
sented to the union.
A meeting of the union men was
held yesterday evening to consi
the proposal of the employers,
the officers of the union were au
thorized to meet with the merchant
tailors at a conference this morning
