"The two conferences were mapped out, but were not organijted and only ft start had been made in their development. We now have between 40 and 50 churches established with over 100 traveling ministera. We have recently bought a large building in Cape Town, whore in Feiiniary next we will open a school to preñare students for a collegiate conrKo. Wo are also hopinir soon to Bt|irt n.n industrial and literary school near Bl«)omfonteln, modeled on the same general plan as the school at TuFkegee.  We are seriously handirnpped in this prnjeet by the unsettled condition of tho country owing to the war There seems little hope of the terrible war cloud lifting. You cannot conceive iuuilltlon of afTairf ov^r there. The Roers nre gradually being wiped off the earth. It ia no longer war but aprocessof slow extermination. I'lnrland will never listen to any arbitration proposition which means the restoration of the repuidfe and the Boers will accept no other settlement. Jtist as long as they are able to keep nn this guerrilla method of warfnre they can, notwithstanding the smallness of their number.^ keep thousands of soldiers in the field busy watching them and trying to head them off."
