   The strength of the Allen C. E. League rests upon its pledge;--
"Relying upon Christ who is the Source of All Strength: I will
earnestly seek for myself the highest New Testament standard of
Christian experience and living, and will do what I can to help others
attain to the same. I will read the Bible and pray every day and
I will abstain from all those forms of worldly amusement forbid-
den by the Discipline of the African Methodist Episcopal Church.
I will attend all the religious meetings of the League and Church
unless hindered by some reason which I can give conscientiously
to my Lord and Master and will take some part aside from singing
in all the prayer and class meetings."
    I. To promote intelligent and practical living among the young
people and friends of the Church.
    II. To train them in proper methods of Christian work and help-
fulness both for support of the Church and relief of the needy.
   III. To strengthen and purify the social life of our young people
and to make them an uplifting force in the departments of life.


     HISTORICAL AND LITERARY DEPARTMENT.
   This Connectional society of the A. M. E. Church is 20
years old, if not older. While there have been many profit-
able conference and episcopal district conventions there has
never been a connectional convention by this society. It
is purposed to hold such a convention in Emmanuel Church,
Charleston, South Carolina in April, 1910.
   It is desired:
   I. That a paper on a historical or scientific subject shall
be prepared for that meeting by one of the abler men in
each Annual Conference.
  II. That each Annual Conference as far as possible,
select such man and provide funds for his expenses.
  III. This desire so far as refers to matter, extends to
the West Indian Mission Field and Africa.
  IV. A program will appear later.
                          BENJAMIN F. LEE, President.
