It is thought to havo been the work of political apponents. tion of the limiting law, to vote against reconsideration. It had been better that every bishop on the bench resign than the church to be balked in such a way at such a crisis. 2* The law of limitation operates negation of the pastoral office. We have a preacher in charge- not a pastorate, Tho class leader was, in the formative stages of the church, provisionally a pastor; but most naturally the order of class leadership having served i(s term was informally shed off; and (he constitutional, scriptural, normal pastorate should haw- substituted it. And so the church considered, and by her General Conference, ordained ttpough that good majority at New'^jdeans. I forbear comment upon or criticism of that by which wo were balked. 3. Our General Conferences are mainly controlled by preachers who hold postions exompt from operation of tho iimitmg law: viz., editors, secretaries, professors and presidents of colleges, aod bishops.

After a thorough disscuss ion of the issue upon its merits through the church journals just preceding the General Conference of 1860, at Now Orieans, that body, by a large majority, v^oted to excind the limitation. Why was the matter reconsidered and a substitution of four year limit adopted in place of an indefinite term? Simply because a bishop of exceptional personal influence was reported, through the General Conference, to purpose a resignation; of his episcopal office. Rather than have luc'i a fiasco, enough of the majority were influenced to vote for a reconsideration and for the substitution to carry it; though there were a number of us who had voted ~yea, for the elimina- and emphasize! t)r. aoln r in file wvt: oe is ciomo-ratner than to remove him. Not infrequently our preachers  in charge are uh-lodgi U for just that which proves them men of higher aim than that of acceptability to the crowd. If it be asked, What is claimed as phenomenal success of Methodism is not attributable to limitation, I answer' No! It is in spite of it. With our genial theology-offering salvation to all alike, through abundance of immediately available free grace and salvation, complete, from the guilt, and power, and pollution of sin-it is simply an outrage that we are so meager as compared with the sin of all the churches whose breath carries the odor of rotten fang3 of an Augustinian, Calvinistic ''Doxie." We are entitled to all the people. The pastorate of the other organizations is the factor, particularly in the town3 and cities that give them a solidarity. We lack taproot because of a lack of pastorate. 5. Through operation of our limitation law. there is kept afloat too much that ought, from the niinisterial order, be relegated to the local sphere. 6* Variety can be sufficiently had to kee^ up the enlivenment of our congregations, by ex-charge of pulpits; and death of preachers, locations, superannuations, and desire for pastoral changes would abundantly meet the requirement claimed, without an unphilosophic, unscrip-tural. radical, arbitrary law of annual depolarization!-annual dismemberment!-J o s e p h B.
