MADE AT ENCAMPMENT.

Special Telegram to The Express.
SUTHERLAND SPRINGS, Tex., July
9.—There was a very important confer-
ence held yesterday afternoon at the
Baptist encampment about methods of
work among people of other languages in
these communities. It was the concensus
of opinion that workers should use the
same methods with them as with English-
sptaking peoples—treat them as broth-
ers. li was agreed that American lead-
ership is essential to success among the
Mexicans. English speaking Christians
need get off their stilts and out of their
starch in their attitude to their American
neighbors of other tongues. The ex-
clusive Jew opened his heart to men ami
women of every Nation on the day of
Rev. C. D. Daniel, superintendent of
Mexican missions, ,vlio wu.- on the pro-
gram to speak on that work, was un. I ic
to be present, but wrote a letter, which
was read at the meeting.
GOOD ADVICE IS GIVEN.
Among other things he said: "Our
Mexican work is getting in excellent con-
dition. There are yet some serious dif-
ficulties at certain places, but on the
whole the work is being greatly pros-
pered and the outlook is very bright.
"The organization of the Mexican con-
vention was the right step in the rignt
diiection. it is putting our Mexican
brethren on their mettle and will more
than double their efficiency in every di-
rection during this year. This eonven-
tion will develop into the most poto.il of
all agencies for the evangelization of
Texas Mexicans. Within tlie next forty
days we hopo to inaugurate a Mexican
orphans' home.ln tiiis home we will not
only provide for these distressingly help-
less Mexican orphans whose parent# have
come to us, but children reared, educated
and trained in such a house will be an
invincible evangelizing force among Mex-
icans everywhere. Airs. Daniel, whose
address for th • present is 1710 South Sev-
enth Street, Waco, will have charge of
the correspondence in reference to the
"Another very important step in Texas-
Mexican evangelization is our tent work.
Brother F. M. McConnell has recently
secured for us a large two-pole tent,
Which he ordered shipped t<» m1' f^oni Si.
Louis, Mo., to Brownsville. It is our
purpose to keep this tent in constant
use. We will first pilch the ' n' in
those places where American brethren
are sufficiently interested to ?o-operatc,
and J rejoice to say there are very many
such places. Will every Am?r»cnn « as-
tor who is willing to co-operate with me
in a tent meeting for Mexicans on ins
field kindly notify me as soon as pos-
sible at 1710 South Seventh Street, Waco?
Hiethren, please attend to this matt
as soon as possible, as 1 am anxio is to
arrange and publish dates for tent meet-
ings for the entire summer and fall at
the earliest poslble date. It is my opir-
ion that 100,000 Mexicans will lnar ihe
Gosuel under this tent during the next
twelve months. Can any mortal tell
what this will mean for the kingdom < f
Jesus Christ in Texas? Baptist hope
among Mexicans is the children, there-
fore it is and has been the plan of our
boards to enlarge this department of the
work as rapidly as practicable, estab-
lishing primary schols at strategic punts
and Sunday schools everywhere pos-
HE TELLS OF THE ACADEMY.
Following an inspiring violin solo by
Prof. Itiester last night, President J. M.
Carroll of San Marcos Academy spoke in
part a:; follows concerning the academy
"Conditions existing in Southwest
Texas prior to this, academy movent- nt
four years ago. Jn this section—6o,000
square miles larger than the State of
(ieorgia- wcre ten Paptist associations
with a little over 14,000 Baptists. In all
Tt x is there were 300.000 wh te Baptists,
outnumbering any Protestant denomina-
tion by 100,000. But here Methodists out- j
numbered us 5000 and Catholics outnum- !
bored us 140,000. In all Texas the Catho- t
lies outnumbered Baptists only 100,000. I
During thirty years preceding the launch- '
ing of the academy enterprise the Bap- !
tist State mission board sent into three '
associations—those of San Anton o, Jtio |
Grande and Blanco—$100,000. into the ten •
oss< cations of Southwest Texas it sent 1
$200,000. But during twenty of itwse years :
preceding our academy campaign there!
was n.»t a net gain of even one member. j
"wo-thirds of all the mon-v invested in
the State by Methodists was invested in 1
Southwest Texas; likewise two-thirds of
Presbyterian money and two-thirds of I
Slate money, but no Baptist money
"There are 16«,u00 Catholics in this ter-
ritory with seventy-two schools, nine of
which in San Antonio are worth $11! ooo,-
"Four years ago it was next to impos-
sible lor a pastor to get h country field,
the little churches were so weak and

territory in the bounds of the Southern
baptist Convention. Barring New Or-

anywhere than are in Southwest Texas.
I la-re were not six self-sustaining
ci,inches nor six churches that paid their

Mexican Executive Asks for Abroga-
tion of Instructions Regarding
Madriz, But Washington
WASHINGTON, D. C-, July 9.—The at-
titude of the Mexican government toward
the Madriz cause in Nicaragua, and the
light iti which President Taft views Cen-
tral American affairs were made plainer
today when the text of the correspond-
ence which recently passed between Pres-
ident Diaz and President Taft on the
subject became public.
The correspondence took place several
weeks ago, but further than hare state-
ments about the exchange and its pur-
port, the Slate Department had nothing
t say about it. The letters were printed
ill Spanish In the City of Mexico and
were translated here today.
Pre: dent Diaz wrote to President Taft
as the result of the circular telegram
Madriz sent to Central American govern-
ments protesting against the attitude of
the United States In Nicaragua.
"if these facts are exact In all details,"
Piesident Diaz Bald, after referring to
Madrix's protest, "I permit myself in the
Most l'rleudly spirit to recommend most
earnestly to your excellency ttiut, In-
spired once more by that high spirit of

toivernment of the United States of
America, you would reconsider those in-
' struct Ions of which Nicaragua complains,

Diaz tin- text of the report which Soere-
i.u-y Knox had .--nt t<- Madriz himself

j i.ady been published, in addition, Pres-
ident Tail spoke of conditions in Nica-

publics of Central America, the Govern-

Artists and Great Teachers Everywhere
Revere the Chickering Piano
The most flattering recognition given any piano is the sincere
tribute paid it by the great musicians. Sensitized to the high-
est degree, the artist's tonal instincts are the final and further-
most test of pianoforte merit—the supreme court of approval.
A true musician's judgment is unerring; his sincerity unques-
tioned; and when he speaks in words of commendation of a
maker it is a tribute of fellowship from one artist to another.
