276               THE A. M. E. REVIEW

       THE REVIEW AND THE ANNUAL CONFERENCES

    The Review cannot be said to be a rival of either of
the Recorders or the Voice of Missions. As the only maga-
zine in our denomination, it stands in a class by itself; it
is today unique in American journalism; for if we except
the A. M. E. Zion Quarterly, it cannot be said to have a

Ninth Districts, Mrs. Nora F. Taylor in the Twelfth Dis-
trict and Dr. J. T. S. White in the Tenth District. In those
Districts to which we sent no special representative the
Review fared badly.  There are some ministers who, just
