One of the Best Ever Heldjn
There was business on hand
Thursday for every one in any
wav connected with the great
Christian Endeavor convention
that convened in this city that
dav. Early in the day commit
tee members were scurrying
hither and yon looking after the
last details before the arrival of
train-; tnat should bring in the
deli- gates.
These began arriving at 11:45
and at the depot were crowds of
local endeavorers and members
of other young people's societies
of the city, to extend a hand of
welcome and a smile of greeting.
Thirty-five children had been en
gaged to escort the delegates to
places of enterh inment, and after
registering and receiving badges
the guests were turned over to
the pages who piloted them to
the Corvallis homes that had
been opened for their reception.
Banners, bearing words of wel
come were displayed on numer
streets of the city, and the
churches were beautifully decor
ated in Endeavor colors, with
mottoes and potted plants. Many
stores also had window displays
and everywhere the visitors were
received with marked courtesy, a
fact that received favorable com
meut from them.
The convention opened with
an afternoon session in the Pres
by terian church at 2:30 Thurs
The evening session occurred
at the First Methodist church,
beginning at 7:45. There were
addresses, of welcome by . Mayor
A. J. Johnson, for. the city, Prot,
Berchtold tor OAC and Rev. C.
T. Hurd in behalf ot. the
churches. After a response and
the announcement of committees,
Rev. E. L. House delivered the
convention sermon," which was a
pslished and impressive discourse
that elicited much praise.'
Friday moraine . at nine the
quiet hour r was led - by A. A.
Winter, the doors being closed
from 9:10 to 9:45. At 945
group conferences were held, and
at Xx:i5 an address, ."Our Ideal':
was given by Rev. D. A.
The afternoon session began at
two o'clock in the Presbyterian
church with devotional exercises
and reports of societies, the latter
all being of a splendid character,
showing marked progress in the
C. E. work. J. R. Landsborough,
of Oregon City, addressed the
audience on, "How Divide Our
. Missionary Activities," Rev
E. F. Green discussed the sub
ject, "What a Pastor may Expect
from his C. E. Society," and Mr
James Edmunds had a closing
address on the subject, "The
Church and the Child."
The evening session Friday
was held in the First Methodist
church and the building was
crowded to the doors, many peo
ple standing. A ladies' chorus,
under the direction of Mrs. E. F.
Green, gave a pleasing selection,
and the report of Field Secretary
Sharp was then delivered. This
was not only interesting but full
of practical suggestions and hope
ful hints as to what should and
will be done in the future. Rev.
It. M. Boozar, always a popular
man with Corvallis audiences,
gave a brief talk on, "Quarter
of a Century of Christian En- j
deavor," showing the origin and
remarkable growth of the move
ment since its inception in the
fertile brain of "Father Endeav
oier Clark. Dr. A. B. Cathey,
in his usual splendid voice, sang
"Lord I Believe," and following
this the address of the evening,
"How the Abundant Life
Abounds" was given by Rev.
E. O. Mulkey of Portland, .who
is a graceful and ; convincing
speaker. Character, he said,'
was formed ;by service, and to
have life more abundantly the
Christina should use ctery talent
and ability given him, that he
might grow and develop in the
Christ life.
Saturday morning the quiet
hour was observed, A. A.
Wiaters leading. The reports of
nffirers were eiven. reports of
superindt endents, word tromthe
districts by their presidents and
election of officers.
The alternoon session was
reduced to one hour being obser
ved, alter which the visitors were
.... ii-
given opportunity 10 visit me
colleo-e and see what thev wisn-
ed of the city.
Saturday evening was devoted
to an informal, reception which
was held ih the Armory. This
was informal in every way and
was most emovable. bix or
seven hundred people were in at
tendence. Sunday morning the
visitinp- clerevmen occupied the
various pulpits ot the city and in
the evening an immense crowd
gathered in the Armory to listen
to a fine lecture by Dr.
Berkeley, California.
At the close of- the convention
the following resolutions were
1. That we express our deep
1- . ?. TA
concern lor our sister city, Eu
gene, whose inability on account
of an epidemic of typhoid tever,
made it necessary to change the
meeting of convention, and that
we hereby express our sympathy
for her people thus afflicted, with
the sincere' hope and devout
prayer that the scourge will soon
cease and that health will be re
stored to her citizens.-
2 . That we extend our heart
felt thanks to the local unions, the
churches and citizens of Corval
lis for their hearty welcome and
assure them of our lasting grat
itude tor their kind reception and
hospitable entertainment during
our pleasant and profitable stay in
their midst.
. That we rejoice over the
signal victory of Corvallis in abol
ishing the saloon and "blind tiger"
from her midst, thus removing
temptation from the young men
who attend our State Agricul
tural College. We pray that her
citizens may never take a step
backward, but may press
ward until every city and town
in our fair state follows Tier ex
ample and drives from our bor
ders the most iniquitous plague
of our modern civilization, and
be it further resolved that this
convention heartily endorses any
and every legitimate movement
for, the abolition of the saloon and
its influences upon the homes,
the institutions and the churches
of this state.
That we extend to the railways
of the state a vote of thanks tor
their kind consideration and gen
erositv toward the delegates to
the convention and for their aid
in thus advancing the work of
God's Kingdom.
That we tender our thanks to
