grounds. The Vancouver churches
and pastors are uniting with the
post to make the occasion one of the
strongest religious-patriotic serv

invited. Chaplain Bronson says he
is endeavoring to reach all the
churches in the county outside of
Vancouver, directly or indirectly.
The time set for the programme, 3

the Vancouver churches are consd-

between 2000 and 3000 must be cared
for in private homes. If these fig

convention in Portland will be one
of the most successful and well at

The only previous occasion when the
general convention was held on the
Pacific coast was at San Francisco. '
A special map, giving the location
of the public auditorium and the
different hotels has been mailed to

letter or telephone. Mrs. J. J. Pan

head of this important phase of the
work. Those who can make possi

means will be conferring a great
pleasure on them and also do much
to make Portland true to its record
as the friendly city.
To date reservations have, been
made for bishops and other clergy
from Jerusalem, Japan, China, Cuba,
the canal zone, Brazil, Honolulu,
British Columbia, Ottawa and Eng

Ten years of earnest effort by the
members of Lincoln Methodist
chuTch, East Fifty-second and East
Lincoln streets, has made necessary
a larger house of worship. This Is
especially true of the Sunday school,

the building, two classes being
forced to meet on the outside. One
class meets in a nearby garage
building, and another in the par
sonage. To meet the needs of this
rapidly growing congregation, the
official members have voted a $7000
improvement to the 'plant.

about twice as much room in the
main auditorium. A modern kitchen

held to be the greatest religious
gathering ever held In China, the
National Christian conference, which
assembled 4n Shanghai In the first !
week of May with 1200 delegates at

field of Protestant Christian mis
sion work In China was undertaken

came from all parts of China num

visiting delegates from foreign coun
tries atienaed the conference in
cluding 2 from America, 19 from
Great Britain and five from coun
tries of continental Europe. Among
the prominent figures attending th
big meeting from other lands were
Dr. John R. Mott of the World's Stu
dent Christian federation, F. S.
Brockman of the Y. M. C. A., K. S.
Latroutte, formerly of the Yale mis

missions at Yale .university. Mar

Mission council; D. Carl Hei'm of the
Bazra mission, Count J. Moltke of
the Danish council and Bishop Nich
olas 'of Serbia.
Regret Is Expressed.
An outstanding feature of the
conference was the voicing of a de
sire and purpose by a purely Chi
nese conference commission that a
united Christian church indigenous
to China shall come into being. The
single big achievement of the con
ference, however, was the authori
zation of a decided modification in
the method of co-ordinating Protest
ant Christian mission work in China.
In offering the report it made, the
Chinese commission, composed of
men and women, expressed regret
that Christian Chinese are divided
by denominationalism of the west.
Dr. T. T. Lew, spokesman of the
commission, pointed out that this
denorainationalism is based upon
differences, the historical signifi
cance of which, however real and
vital to the missionaries of the west,
is not understood by the Chinese.
For this reason, he said, denomina
tionalism. instead of being a source
of inspiration, has been and Is a
source of bewilderment and ineffi
ciency. The speaker expressed the
belief that it is only the united
church that can save China.
Committee's Work Ended.
The change made by the confer
ence in the method of co-ordinating
mission work brings to a termina
tion the activities of the China con
tinuation committee, a body that
grew out of the missionary confer
ence of 1913 in Shanghai and , a
number of preceding conferences at
Canton. Shanghai, Tsinanfu, Pekin,
Hankow and Mukden. Since It was
formed this committee has served as
a means of communication between
the Protestant Christian forces of
China and mission organizations of
western countries. Us aim has been
to promote co'-operation and co-ordination
among Christian forces in
China and generally to serve as a
clearing house in connection with
all aspects of missionary work in
