to properly carry on the business of his office.  On the examination of
the premises and after testing the building in view of the weight it
would have to bear by having a large safe and drawers and counter
erected in that apartment, it was evident that in carrying out the
behest of the General Conference the building would have to be
strengthened considerably and at great cost. And furthermore, if ade-
quate repairs had been made to the building it was apparent that the
church would scarcely get any result commensurate with the outlay, as
the unoccupied portion of said building would be exposed to neglect
and ruin. In order to avoid difficulty and at the same time not to
defeat the purpose of the General Conference to have this department
also located in this city, your Financial Secretary entered into the
following compact with the Secretary of the Church Extension, which
explains itself, and upon which you shall have to take final action:
  Whereas, The General Conference has located the headquarters of
the Board of Church Extension in the Connectional Building, 1541 14th
St, N. W., Washington, D. C., and designated the rooms to the right
stairway on the second floor for the offices; and
  Whereas, Such location of affairs' will work a great inconvenience
to the Financial Department and expose the unoccupied portion of said
building to neglect and ruin; therefore it is hereby agreed by the Finan-
cial Secretray to surrender to the Secretary and Board of Church
Extension the building 1535 14th St., N. W., formerly known as the
old financial department, in lieu of rooms 1541 14th St., N. W. This
contract to be binding on the undersigned, subject to the approval or
rejection by the Financial and Church Extension Boards at their
regular meeting in April, 1909.
   (Signed)
                     JOHN HURST, Financial Secretary;
                     B. F. WATSON, Secretary Church Extension.
   Our Inheritance.--The labors of Secretary Lampton in this depart-
ment are too well known to require at my hands any commendatory
reference. He is a business man and his sound business methods as
applied here have brought forth results that make his administration
an epoch in the history of this department. Finding this institution
overwhelmingly in debt, he succeeded not only in paying off every cent
of the indebtedness, but in winning for it such a place among other
kindred institutions of the country that it enjoyed a credit equivalent
to almost half of its yearly income. It is to the healthy condition in
which he left it that our success this present year is largely due, and as
his successor I feel greatly indebted to him.
   Our Reverses.--This year has not been free from certain economic
conditions tending to effect more or less our finances. These conditions
