Dr. Clarence True Wilson
Says Rules of Church
V are Antiquated. Yr
The rules of our ohurch' are antl
quated and need to be revised.' That
was the gist of Dr. Clarence True Wil
son's paper on "Needed Church Legis
lation," at the meeting thla morning of
the Methodist ministers of this city.
Dr.. Wilson pointed out the inconsisten
cies and the weaknesses in their church
government which, he thought should be
changed at the general conference next
May. There were smiles and node of
approval from aome of the ministers
present,' though several of - the Old
regime looked disapproving.
The first change suggested waa in the
bishops who -are made ttlnesant and
while, serving ons territory never' be
come cltlsens anywhere.-. , -1
"Our bishops are moved at will from
Honolulu to Maine, from . China to
Maryland," said Dr. Wilson, and their
influence is scattered Instead of con
centrated. No bishop of ours Is' known
as a prominent cltlsen or haa his name
in the city or telephone directory. They
should rather be made missionary blsh
np. a they - In India, and remain
in one territory with a central local
point- fos-fous-years." ...
- Attacks Amusement males. '
With this Bishop Coburn who was
present agreed, and he called attention
that three bit-hops have died and two
been broken In health In the round-the-world
trina thev have to make.
nr. Wilson next attacked the church
fhlr" which requires5' expulsion from the
church for Indulging in certain namea
amusements, which rule he said no
sane pastor would attempt to enforce.
"It should be struck from our rules
beoauae It doean't bar many from those
amuaements yet It excludes many In
telligent and conscientious young people
from our church.- The matter of- dano
Ing, card playing- and theatrea should
be left to the individual conscience.
It Is unworthy of the rank and breadth
of our church to enforce Issues on mat
ters, that are not sins.
." Declares rolloles AaUs,nate. .
"Our rules are antiquated and should
be revised. Every minister Is recom
mended to peruse carefully and prayer
fully, 'Heart and Church Division," a
book which on inquiry I found no pas
tor could tell me about and a publish
ing house finally found that there bad
been such a book, but it had been out
of print for 22 years. There are items
in our ritual that need to be changed.
The ugly terra "skin, worms,' should be
struck out of bur funeral ceremony aa
there Is no such term in the original
and ours is the only church that retains
It The wedding ..ceremonial, with tha
hard words "With this ring I thee wed
and with all tny worldly goods I thee en
dow,' could be Deauuiiea to ut me
beautiful act" '
Blabop Coburn agreed with Mr. Wil
son's paper and said that Dr. Curry,
the author of the rule on amusements,
had expressed his opinion that It was
a mistake and at the time had offered
It merely for an experiment .
"Personally I think it a bad bit of
