Budget Containing the Status of Methodism at the Second Ecumenical Conference of Methodism
			
             STATUS OF METHODISM AND CHRISTIANITY.            221

Book claims that the Baptists have more communicants than any
other Church in Oklahoma Territory.  As it gives no figures, and as
its list of ministers gives the names of but three of that faith in that
Territory, we are inclined to the belief that the facts will not sustain
the claim.  Although the Baptists are more numerous in Indian Terri-
tory than any other denomination with which comparison is made in
the above table, the Methodist Episcopal Church, South, outnumbers
it in that Territory, and is the leading denomination in it.
     It will further be seen, from the table, that in each of the States
of Indiana, Iowa, Kansas, Nebraska, and Ohio the members of the
Methodist Episcopal Church are more in number than those of the
other four Churches Combined. A larger comparison also shows that
in the twenty-four States and Territories west of Pennsylvania the
Methodist Episcopal Church has 1,027,054 members, while the four
other Churches named have in those States in the aggregate but 1,009,-
402.
               METHODIST EPISCOPAL CHURCH, SOUTH.
     Possibly it may interest some to know what the membership of
the Methodist Episcopal Church, South, is in the above named States
and Territories.  We therefore add the following table:
                          Members.                           Members.
