Budget Containing the Status of Methodism at the Second Ecumenical Conference of Methodism
			


       THE  STATUS  OF  METHODISM,  OF  CHRISTIANITY,  AND  OF
               AFRICAN METHODISM IN THE WESTERN SECTION
                       OF THE ECUMENICAL METHODIST
                            CONFERENCE OF 1891.



    The subject considered this afternoon is the Status of Methodism
in the Western Section or the State or Condition of all branches of the
Methodist Family, in what is known, geographically, as the West In-
dia Island, the Dominion of Canada, the Republic of Mexico, the
former home of the Montezumas, Central America, with her five in-
dependent Republics and British Honduras, South America, with her
thirteen Political Divisions, tem Republics, French, Dutch and British
Guiana, Hawaii Island and the United States, with her forty-four Re-
publics and vast territory. It will be seen that this vast Dominion
and its inhabitants are intimately connected with the civilization of
the age. And Methodism has been one of the prime factors in the
civilization and development-its spirit, its doctrines and government,
have had direct and indirect influence on a large portion of this
territory. The Itinerant preacher has explored it from east to west;
has sung, preached and prayed from ocean to ocean, crossed the
rivers, penetrated its forests, ascended its lofty mountains, in summer
and winter; he has accompanied the emigrant train; assisted in se-
lecting the town sites, carried the surveyors' chains to lay out the new
county, and has been one of the first with ax in hand to cut down the
trees of the forest, to hew the logs for the new-made home; he has
been the first at log-rolling, house-raising, corn-shucking, cider-making,
the first school teacher, the country 'Squire and the country lawyer.
