Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - August 13, 1910, Lethbridge, Alberta The Lethbrldgc Dally Herald. Saturday, August 13, GIRL WAS TOO YOUNG TO WED (Continued from front A Couple of Corrections At this point in the evidence, Mis 'Wallace volunteered a couple of co sections in last day's evidence. The allowed. The first dealt wit Sunday quarrel between Niuho ;son and Butler. The girl forgo to state, "Mr. Nicholson askeves me." 1 answered, "She told me differ ent- r'. Why, man, she does not know what love is. When she of age have sense, she won't vipe her oots on you, let alone love you." Persuasion With.a. Gun Nicholson seemed offended as ibst- jfinition of his character, ar-d went n to state what a bvl 'minded moili r I was, backing up his statements y an accusation. I denied the. truth the--charge. ITa persisted I one as stated. He Insulted" rae, sud valking over to J'he-ctesk I {.Jciccd up 'walked around the end f the table and, said Nicholsrn, go I ad enough ooth... Never let me see ou again." Thereupon I broke down and May ame over and go, Mr. and turning to me, she tated, "We'll'let this matter drop ght .now, and never .have anything ore to do with one another." Nicholson then gave a sneering ugh as he said to me, "That's on- y in front of you. I'll not take that r an answer." With' that he left he house. I have had no conversation with im since. Never did I give consent my daughter's going away, with m, or hold out any hope in his di- ection." Asked by prosecuting counsel as to he value of her personal effects, wit- ness stated she had furniture and money to the value of about This ended the evidence for that ses- sion, t Considerable discussion was next raised in court as to whether or not May Wallace could be termed an heiress, either in the sense of a pre- sumptive heiress, or the probability of -her becoming one in the due course of legal action, or as a result of dis- position of property on the death of either parent. Eventually it was de- cided upon by His Worship that the court be adjourned to meet again at 2.30. p.m. Aug. 15th. as the place of meeting. First General Conference The first general Conference was held in 1874 and included, in part, both east and west (the west meant Ontario then) but -did not. include all the 'branches of Methodism. The larger union _ by which the Canadian Methodist church became one from ocean to ocean took place in: 1884 af- ter a long series, of discussions and debates in which the giants of those days fully: participated. -Of these un- ion movements more wiir.ibe -said-.in another letter. Dr. 'Carman, the pres- ent general superintendent, was' a member of the :M. E. church, having its headquarters In the TJ." S. He was a professor at and president of Albert College, Belleville, and had been elected a bishop In 1874. -When the union took place in. 1884 he and Dr. Rice were elected general superin- tendents, tbius Dr. Carman has" held the high position of overseer of the church -continuously for 38 years. Some Famous Names. It is interesting to note some of the names connected with the first -gen- eral conference in 1874, prob- lems they -had to deal with. Dr. Eger- ton Ryerson, champion of civil and religious rights, was president; Dr. George Douglas was vice-president, Dr. D. D. Currie, (whose later, .life was a was secretary. Dr. Rice and Dr. H. Pictard of N. B., were ilnent members. Questions relat- ing to the union, education and class meetings were to-the front. soc- iological era had not yet properly be- gun. Higher Education The interest of Methodism In higher education is strikingly apparent from the first. Away .back in. 1830 when there were only members and 45 ministers, the. "Upper Canada Academy" was proposed, as "a sem- inary, where youth may .be trained up in 'the knowledge and obedience of God, and, at the same time be faith- fully instructed in it-he various bran- ches of' human, learning -which the present state of society render neces- sary in order to respectability and usefulness.'1 How .did they propose-1 maintaining this school? The confer- ence of 1832 passed a -resolution re- questing the ministers to give in. their marriage fees for four years! It was then only recently they had been granted .legal. permission to marry at all. This school developed in 1841 Into. .Victoria University. _ a far call from 1744-1824 1874- 1S84 (it.looks, like all to the present general conference, both in point of time, place, distance and per- sone'll, yet how like and unlike, sim- ilar and all human prob- lems when -sifted to their essential Probably there will be less real battle, passion and fire manifest here than at any of the above dates; yet so well are churches now organiz- ed and so evenly.-and unselfishly is power distributed, it would appear that the -maximum, is.jbeing done with the minimum display of individ- ualism and noise. Problems Facing Conference That this conference has an easy task confronting it, a glance at the agenda would show. There are some- thing over two dozen departments of work to be considered, fraternal mes sages from England, Ireland, the Un- ited States, North and South, and Japan, to hear, besides questions of church union, ministerial supply, elec- tion of general officers, the establish- ment of a western book room, with various Incidental and contingent mat- ters, including nearly 400 memorials. The present secretary, Rev. T. Albert Moore, D.D., has spared no effort to have the programme well organized and with an executive, officer of un- equalled ability like -Dr. Carman in the chair, schedule .time will he made. Victoria's welcome is princely. .Sel- dom has a young city had such a strain- laid upon her as Victoria in entertaining the ministers of the 'Crown" and of the "Cross" at the same time. The general conference has been Invited toy the British Co: lumbia government to attend the re- ception to Sir Wilfrid Laurier and party on August' 17th. ew BAD FIRES IN WASHINGTON Several Towns Are In Iniiriineiit Danger of Destruction Spokane.
