Handbook, 1909

and service almost immeasurably.      In no part is this
felt more keenly than in the composition of the roster.
Most of the names and addresses are based upon the con-
ference distributions in 1908 and the spring of 1909. The
addresses of more than one-third of the ministers in our
church are changed every three years.     Beside this the
ravages of death, transfers, withdrawals, expulsions, in-
effectiveness, etc., go far to modify a list of 5000 names in
two years.  It is pleasant to acknowledge receipt of re-
vised lists of conference appointments through the kindness
of ministers, who in many cases put themselves to severe
work; at the same time it is embarrassing to allow them to
see the former lists published without regard to revision.
This is accounted for in most cases because the revised list
came in late.
  At this writing, August 1910, the Episcopal ranks of the
Church have been broken by the death of Bishop Edward
W. Lampton, D.D., July 16, 1910; our General Officer ranks
by the death, July 23, 1910, of Rev Henry T. Johnson, D.D.,
editor of the Christian Recorder, 18 years; our ministerial
roster has been impoverished by the death of many good
and highly respected pastors and presiding elders, as Revs.
D. F. Caliman, D.D.; B. J. Simmons and the venerable
Grafton H.  Graham, Ohio; Rev. C. H. Hunter, Virginia;
Rev. John W. Lampton,  D.D.,  Mississippi; Revs. J. C.
Waters, D.D., and E. J. Gregg, D.D. Maryland; Rev. F. D.
Crum; Rev. H. W. G. Alexander, and Rev. J. W. Johnson,
South Carolina; Revs. J. W. Jeffries and Israel Derricks,
Pennslyvania; Rev. S. T. Tice, Florida; Rev. J. N. Abbey,
Oklahoma; the venerable Wilson Peterson, New Jersey; Rev.
William Flagg, Jr., D. D., Tennessee.
  Among the laymen may be mentioned President William
H. Council, A. M., practically a layman, Alabama, and Pro-
fessor J. P. Shorter, A. M., Ohio; both prominent in educa-
tional circles.
  The transferred ministers include with many others, Rev.
