Dr. Dilly, of San Francisco, repre
senting the Book Coucern, and Dr.
Olin, of Chicago, Assistant secretary
of the Missiouitry Society, .could not
reinaiu through tlio morning session,
the courtesy of tlio conference was
extended to them, and they were per
mitted to give a representation of
their interests before any other work
of tlio conference.
The bishop formally opened the con
ference at 0:43 by announcing the
hymn, "OjFor a Thousand Tongue,"
which was sung,, after which the
bishop rend the .Mh and Oth chapters
of IL Corinthians. The presiding
elders were then called to tlio chan
cel and assisted in tlio administration
of the gncrnmc lit of the Lord's Supper.
Tlio roll was called and a large
number of the members of the con
ference answered present.
Tin) organisation of the conference
was effected by tlio election of Rev.
C. A. Lewis, secretary, He v. L. It.
Pederson, statistical secretary and
Rev. J. Parsons, treasurer.
L. C. Zimmerman was elected re

mcmlien! of the coulerenco who were
suffering on account of sickness and
others w ho were not pre sent on ac
count of flnaiiciiil embarrassment were
excused from attendance.
For several years tlio conference has
had some dilliculty in adjusting the
uumboj ol districts to suit the views
of all the people interested. The
number has been changing from three
to four, vibrating from one side to
the other like a pendulum, and the
clock seems to be wound up to run
for years. A resolution was present
ed to reduce the number of districts
from four to three. This resolution
provoked the old time discussion, unit
wir participated iu by quite a number
of tlio ministers. A ballot vote was
taken, expressing tlio sentiments of
the conference on this question which
resulted in 10 votes fur four districls,
as at present, and 42 votes for a less
number of districts. Tim vote taken
is only in the nature of a request to
the bishop to reduce the number of
districts to n less number thuu four,
but what he will do remains to be
Dr. Ford, presiding elder of the
Engine district made his riqmrt
which indicated a very encouraging
condition in that district. TlicrcjHirt
was short, covering the ground in a
very coneiso wav. Committees were

ered a very beautiful anthem.
Rev. Thomas Iliff, who superin
tended our work in Utah for 28 years.
and now assistant secretary of the
Church Extension Society, was intro
duced and ndilresscd the lnrge
audience. His address was filled
with valuable information. Tiie
value of the Church Extension Society
to Oregon was made very npiiurcnt
when lie mndo the statement that the
Oregon conference received two doi
lars. from the society for every dollar
given by this conference to the
society. Ho was glad to announce
that the Oregon conference had made
a gain of $103 this ' year iu their
contributions to this society. In
speaking of tho work of tho society
the speaker said "If you would sec
the work of the Church Extension
Society, look around you ; this is one,
aud one of more than 12,000 churches
assisted by this society." The
work of tho Church Extension Society
means priiicitwlly the salvation of

society aro fingerboarded "This way,
His address was filled with thrilling
incidents of personal exixrieneo dur
ing his early work in the mountain
districts of the western country.
Everything he said was made to
point to Church Extension. Dr. Iliff
certainly believes iu church extension
and has the power to imiiart his
enthusiasm to his congregation. At
tho close of tho service a collection
was taken to assist iu building
churches iu the Philippines.

over last year of 170.. Dr. Iliff
stated that the amount of the collec
tion tho night before was $TiO.(iO, be
sides some pledges.
Dr. Ford stated that a layman had
intrusted to him $100 to do with as
ho pleased. He said he desired to
place it ill the Church Extension fund
to the credit of the Eugene district.
Dr. Waters stated that a layman iu
tho Eugene district would pay the
other $10 to make up in full the de
ficiency to the Church Extension
Society. The conference sang,

Dr. Fisher, editor of the Pacific
Christian Advocate, was Introduced
and spoke in tho interests of the
jmpcr. He said, "I am beginning to
feel proud of the Oregon conference."
He dwelt uikiu the thought expressed
by John Wesley when he said, "There
can 1)0 no growth iu grace without
giving attendance to reading." He
slated that the Oregon conference oc
cupied a strategic position and the
Methodist church here bus a great
responsibility and it is iiieunilsiit
ujsiii us to put into use every element
of snwer. We need the school and we
need our lisul Jiiiper, "The Pacific
Christian Advocate'." Tim bishop
also addressed the conference in the
interest of the Advocate. On motion
of Rev. W. T. Kerr Sunday, Oct. Hit h
was fixed as Advocate Day.
The secretary of the conference

Rev, Jones was appointed as a
tolii-itor fur funds for superannuates.
Rev. D. T. Hummerville, presiding
lder of the Grants Pass district made
his report His district is the largest
in the conference and the hardest to
work. But there has been progress
in all lines of church work. He gave
quite a detailed report of the lalsirs
and trials of his suitor, and improve
ments in church proj-rty. His report
was full of interest aud the informa
tion conveyed by it gave to the con
ference a complete view of the con
ditions of the district. Hia 'district
covers an area of 84,000 square miles.

Grunts Pass district is wit responsible
for any deficiency iu the missionary
collection as $740 was raised this
year $09 more thau tho apportion
ment. Dr. Rockwell, presiding older of
the Portland district reported: He
said that seven things were iu view
in tho bciguuing of this conference
year: First, pastoral support; second,
to place the conference claimants ou
the same footing as the pastors and
presiding ciders, raising nt least 3 per
cent of the pastor's salary for the
superannuated preachers; third, the
payment of church debts; fourth, the
building of mrsonuges ou those
charges that have none; fifth, au in
creased number of subscribers to the
Pacific Christian Advocate; sixth,
appointments of claims and benevo
lences met iu full ; seventh, a recog
nition of tho claims of Willamette
University nnd the securing of at least
$1 jxtr member for it.
Those things have becu partially
realized. Pastors' salaries ou sixteen
charges were increased $1700 ovor last
year; the collection for conference
claimants is in udvuuco of last year;
four mortgages wero burned during
the year, anil out of 11 churches in
debt at the begiuuing of the year all
bnt one have made some progress to
ward thu liquidation of their in
debtedness; three parsonages have
been completed and two others aro in
progress of erection. The pastors
were all faithful in the discharge of
their duties aud the collections for
benevolences ou sixteen charges show
an increase over last year. Willamette
University has had the sympathy of
most of the preachers and the co-
niH-ration of tho jieoplo where present
Dr. Walters, presiding elder of
Salem district, reported for his dis
trict. He gave a concise and instruc
tive rejiort concerning the work of the
district. Hu stated that the member
ship of the church in the Sulem dis
trict would show but a small increase
owing to thu removal of many. It is
apparent that this is still au unsettled
country. The nqxirts oi pastors show
fidelity to their work. There has been
this year an increase in the collection
for benevolences ot over loO per cent.
The reKirt of Dr. D. 'A. Wutters
completed the rejKirts of the presid
ing ciders, thu reiHirts showing an
advancement in all the districts along
ull lines of church work, thus reveal
ing the encouraging fact that the
Oregon conference is 'on the upward
grade. May she continue with in
creased velocity iu that direction.

At 3 :'.W p. iu. was held the anniver
sary of the Woman's Foreign Mission
ary Society. After devotional service
Rev. H. J. Talbot of Taylor St.
Church, Portland, addressed the
meeting. Among other things he
said this society was organized Ull
years ago iu Boston. Care was taken
in its organization that it should not
interfere with tliu work of tho parent
missionary six-lMy. In its organiza
tion there are eleven branches. Each
conference has its organization as
well as presiding elder's district.
The sources of income are from dues
and thank offerings and gifts. The
society maintains 2 ill missionaries and
many helpers. The work of this
siK'iety may bit tabulated under two
heads More than $ 100, 000 have been
raised by this society toward the 20th
century thank offering. It deserves
great credit also for manufacturing
There is no open hostility to this
society by iitiy pastor of the church,
but very little criticism upon thu
mrt of any, and none at all where the
work of thu society is thoroughly un
derstood. It is tint observation of those
iu posil ion to know that where this
society is most active tlio collections
for the general missionary srs iety are
increased rather than diminished.
The primary object of Missionary
work, is not to better the civilization
or to introduce the implements of in
dustry to the heathens, hut to bring
them to Christ and thus save them
After the address, the audience was
favored with a beautiful solo bv Mrs.
Young. The secretary of the Oregon
Conference W. F. M. S. made riqwirt
of the work of the year. The mem-
hcrship has increased this year aud
two new auxiliaries have In i n organ
