AH tile important committees of the church make-reports of the work done during the >ear The most im- portant committees are those having charge of the work of the church at home, abroad and in colleges. At the meeting of the Assembly in Toronto last year a large committee was nam- take under consideration all questions relating to colleges and col-, lege education, and it is expected that aivery. earnest debate will occur with rega'r'd to the -work-.of the -colleges this'year. 'Thij church has institutions of character from Halifax In the. to Vancouver in the west. New 'Institutions have recently heen begun .In- the cities of Edmonton -'tocnij and from'thesViinteresting re- -iwrts are expected. Many leading min- 'IsteW of the church have expressed 'their .belief that .changes should be made In the curriculum of the col: leffw, and that "they should be made more practical and up-to--late ncv.

This is considered an. e'xcellelht showing in view of the great financial depression. The east did better for the church than the west in this regard.. pro- vinces appear to. have been more'se- verely hit by the depression than the older provinces in the east, and the contributions from the prairie prov- inces less for the year, than they were in-the previc-js year. While tlie revenue of the church .has increased, its obligations have increased still more rapidly. The Presbyterian church now guarantees In full the payment in salaries of all its home missionaries. In earlier years only a. portion -was guaranteed, the supposition being that the balance would .he paid by'the con- 'grega'tipn. .In addition to '.this the 'outfits; such as iorses ;and for.the min- isters andfTJttid eats, who "do -the work m remoter-parts: of All ;his means additional expense. In for- eign countries -there have also been developments.- in recent years, which have laid a .heavy financial'burden on the church. In India, for instance, whole castes have applied for admis- sion to the body. The name thing has occurred in olher'countries. In China, owing to the .political change, there ias been a strong demand for Increas- ed mission T-he same thing has aeen true in The result has been. ,that large .'expenses have been incurred; With thes'returh or better times in Canada, it is believed that ill the money needtd for this new work will be provided.- Ilev. Dr. A, S. Jrant.has borne a, considerable por- tion of the burden of this financi ig, ar.d it is possible that he may co.ne in for some criticism at the comlns meeting of -Church Again Sentiment on the churcl'i union qties- ticn is favorable to, union in this dis- trict, and it is believed that a forward movement wll bo taken at the comng assembly. The church will be prac- tically forced to go forward, since the condition ife becoming acute. Since the meeting of tho Assembly in To- ronto in 1913, about a dozen local church unions have taken place be- tween Methodists and Presbyterians. These unions have occurred chiefly in the prairie provinces. In Ontario, where in some districts the population Is declining, union IK obvously desir- able. Conditions are, however, more increasing number or local chutcb un- ions which, are effected ihe-sspect ation that a legal union..of the two.de nominations will take place in the near future will, however, have influ- ence on the Assembly, The opposition to union is expected to be vigorous A few Weeks ago a meeting of those opposed to union was held in Toronto, and plans were laid' at that time to fight union in the Assembly here. It is recognized Quit whenever union is effected there will be some loss, and there appsare to be a growing deter- mination on the part of those who are favorable to union "to bring this matter to a final issue. Some chang- es have been proposed in the 'baals of union, and although trifling; it Trill be necessary to give congrega- tions the opportunity to vote on them. Consequently a new vote will be tak- en, probably before the close of the present year In all the congregations of the church, both -Methodist and Presbyterian. Delegates Transportation Paid The attendance at the meeting here will he large. For the .first time, this year the railway gates from all parts Canada will be paid by the church. Last year the expenses were paid, but it was then regarded as a special feature of the congress of that year. This year the expenses will- be. paid first time in accordance with the perman- ent standing order of th.e denomina- tion. In earlier years ministers living in the prairie'provinces and in Bri- tish .Columbia and ministers Ivlng n remote parts of the Maritime Provinc- es, were in many cases unable to at- tend the Assembly, o'tving to. the ex- pense. This difficulty is now remov- and it is expected'that there will be as full a representation from the far west and the far east as there will be from the province of Ontario. Local Although is much small- er than the cities which, as a rule, en- tertain the Assembly, there will be adequate provision lii Kuox church both for the public for all committee meetings. The struct- ure is comparatively new, having been built only fifteen years ago. The audi- torium will seat from 1200 to 1500 people, and the schoolroom addi- tional. A number of the delegates to the Assembly will be coining back home to Woodstock. It is said that this district Jias sent upwards of one hundred ministers Into the service of the church during the last sixty-five years. settled here than in tlic west, nnd people'are slower to lake action. 1'lic SUFFRAGETTE BOMB DIDN'T.
