REPORT OF PRESBYTERIAN
Board Has Aided in Building Churches
In All but Five States Dur.
Ing Past Year.
I By Associated Press. '
l.oulsvllle Ky. May 23. The board
of the church erection fund whose
president Is P. G. Burnham made its
report to the General Assembly of the
Presbyterian Church in the United
States of America today.
Applications for the year 1911-12 to-
taled 1443948 and the appropriations
$267819. The total receipts were $719-
481 and the total disbursements were!
$302825. The report 'says in part:
"In the prosecution of its work dur-
ing the past year the board has aided
in building churches In every state
except five and also in Alaska and
among the Mexicans Mormons In-
dians and negroes.
"There is a prevalent belief that the
church Is losing its influence among
men and that Christian faith is wan-
ing but the facts in the experience of
the boards of the church do not justify
that belief. Never before in the his
tory of our country were the resources
of the board so greatly taxed to meet
the demand for the means of grace
and for the privileges of the sanctuary
as at the present time.
"The apportionments have been dis-
tributed among thirty-nine states
Alaska the District of Columbia and
"The state of Washington received
the largest number of appropriations
which was 25 and the largest aggre-
gate amount $26413. Oklahoma fol-
lows with 21 appropriations aggregat-
ing $19240. These were the states
of greatest increase in population dur-
ing the decade from 1900 to 1910.
"The number of churches aided by
this board since the beginning of its
work in 1844 is more than 96 per
cent of the number oS churches now
upon the roll of the general assembly.
"For the last ten years the annua)
contributions of the church to this
board have advanced but $10300 i. e.
from $59300 to $69500 only 8.8 per
cent while the demands have in-
creased from $246626.50 to $443948
55.5" per cent.
"The rapidly increasing demand
upon the board has a manifold signifi-
cance. It Is Indicative of national
growth and material prosperity. It
speaks with emphasis of the advanc-
ing movements of our beloved church
which moving in harmony and good
fellowship with other branches of the
church of Christ points to the prog-
ress o :.' the Master's kingdom. We may
rejoice and take courage for a larger

A BIG BATTLE AT
Federal Troops Force Battle with
Orozco's Army of Five
By Associated Press !
At Federal Front Near Rellano
Mexico May 23. After two weeks'
march through the desert General
Huereta commanding 4000 federal
troops finally forced General Orozco's
army of 5000 into a battle today which
may prove to be the turning point In
the revolutionary movement.
The government troops today are
114 miles north of Torreon where
they met the rebels. The federals re-
newed the heavy artillery fire at day-
break. The steady shelling from forty
big gunft of the federals yesterday was
slowly disorganizing the enemy when
night stopped the combat.
Both sides renewed the fighting with
vigor early today the heavy artillery
pieces of the rebels projecting shells
for a distance of four miles.
The battlefield is Just outside of
Rellano and is a sandy mesa with ap-
proaches visible many miles. High
grasses form protection from view for
the Infantry rebels in their well forti-
fied position in Rellano.
At 7 o'clock this morning the rebels
were holding their own but the heavy
artillery fire of the federals was stead-

The federals under General Huerta
attempted a flank movement but were
unsuccessful. General Orozco has been

is terrible but the rebels are patiently
waiting until the federals come Into

In yesterday evening's fighting the
federals retired from the charge three
times before the rebel rifle fire.
