Budget Containing the Status of Methodism at the Second Ecumenical Conference of Methodism
			
            STATUS OF METHODISM AND CHRISTIANITY.               99

    It will be seen that enumeration of 1882 was as follows: white
265.548, colored 243,174.  Total, 508,722.
    In 1888 we have the school population: white 292,624, colored
267,657.  Total white and colored, 560,281.
    The enrollment in 1887 was, whites, 208,865, or there were 83,-
759 population whose names were not on the school book.
    The enrollment of colored children was 133,426, which left 134,-
228 out of the school-room.  Thus we have a total enrollment  of
white and colored in the State of Georgia of 342,294, or 71.3 per cent.
of the white school population and 49.4 per cent. of the colored pupils
in school, or to go a little further we have only 61.0 per centum of the
school population enrolled in the State.
    There were in the State in 1887, 718 private schools, with 804
teachers; number of pupils, white males 10,872, white female, 10,370;
total, 12,942 whites in private schools.  Colored males 2,978, colored
females, 3,219; total colored pupils, 6,197.  Total white and colored
in these private schools in the State 27,468.
    The average attendance white and colored in the State is 226,290
every day.  This is an increase over the average of 1885 of at least
16,290, which ought to be gratifying to all friends of education.
     In 1888 there were 4,375 white schools, with 95,334 males; 85,-
721 females, or a total of 181,055 pupils, 1,987 colored schools, with
52,186 males and 54,494 females, or 106,679 in the colored army in
the State.
     There were reported to the Commissioner of Education in 1888
2,512 colored teachers in the State. It is wonderful to think of, when
I can remember when there was not a school in the State; now the
common school is at almost every cross-road, and the native sons
and daughters are moving southward with the banner of christian edu-
cation, bidding the generations to arise and shine.  They are doing
a great work in Orlando, Gainsville, St. Augustine and Jacksonville.
Some of the finest teachers I have had the pleasure of meeting were
from the State of Georgia.  The Georgia girls all take the lead for
religion, morality and education.
     The influences of the colleges are being felt, the Atlantic Uni-
