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

versity is hard at work, the Clark University and Gammon Theologi-
cal School are sending out young men and  women  who are doing
much, while the Spellman is making the waters move, and her sons
and daughters are in the van of the fight.
     Moses Brown is led on by Bishop W. J. Gains and others, a
native of the State.  It stands as a monument to the faith, energy and

conviction that every government is recreant to its duty that does not
do all in its power to educate its people.  Let me pause here to re-
mark that Georgia has thus far done nobly on this line. In view of
her prostration by reason of the war, and the subseqent cruel oppres-
