Subjects Under Discussion at the
Turner Cain p meeting-,
TURNER, Or., June 20. (Special.) Tho
Oregon Christian Missionary convention
of Oregon opened Its sessions at Turner,
Or., at 3:30 A. M. Friday. A. R- Davis had
charge of the song service. W. I Mc-
Alvaino led the praise service. In the
absence of Rev. J. F. Ghormley, president.
Rev. George C. Richey, vice-president, oc
cupied the chair.
Brother J. B. Holmes was called to the
chair and announced an address by George
C, Richey, of Salem, on "Ministerial Re
lief." He. said this work had been much
neglected in the Coast States. Oregon,
Washington and California have contrib
uted only $12L23 to this work. Mr. Richey
showed this Is not a work of charity, but
Is. a debt that tho brotherhood owes to the
old veterans of the cross.
Mr. Holmes gave an address on the
theme. "Tho Divorce Problem." He said
in part: "The people ought to know the
position of the ministry op this Important
question," He said the United States com.
pares very unfavorably with other coun
tries In regard to the frequency of divorce
cases. He showed that In some cities In
the United States the relation between
marriages and divorces is one divorce to
four marriages. TO every 10,000 marriages,
England, has 19, France 127, Bussla 22,
Canada 12, Germany 152 and the United
States 414 divorces. In the countries where
tho laws permit divorces only on Scrip
tural grounds there, are few divorco cases.
Allen Wilson preached from the subject,
'What Think Ye of Christ?" The out-
lino of hs sermon was: What his friends
havo said; what his enemies have said
about him; what Jesus himself said; what
God has. said concerning him; what do
the Angels think? What do you think
about the Christ? It was a strong and.
logical sermon and was listened to with
