CENTRAL TEXAS CONFERENCE JOURNAL.
The total sales now amount to $658,000 and increasing annually at the rate
of $35,000. The profits amount to $80,000 per year and the total assets
reaches well over one million dollars. Not only are we making money by
our publishing interest, we are also doing a great work in placing wholesome
literature before 'our people.
All of cur periodicals seem to be in good condition. The Methodist Review
is a publication of which our people are justly proud, and stands equal to
that of any church paper anywhere. To its conduct the editor has brought
tireless industry and scholarly ability. It has more than paid the cost of
publication, but is worthy of a much larger circulation amongst our preach-
ers and people.
The Christian Advocate, under the new editorship, is meeting every de-
mand, and rings out clear in the doctrines and polity of our church, and
defends her rights in every instance.
We heartily commend the management and editorial work of our own
Texas Christian Advocate and rejoice at the re-election of Dr. G. C. Rankin
as editor. He is making it felt as no other paper in the state is felt.
We heartily commend the management of the Texas Tract Society, and
believe it has in it possibilities of the greatest importance to our church.
We urge our pastors to secure its publications and freely distribute them
among our people and the public generally.
By a unanimous vote the Committee recommends that the Texas Advo-
cate gather and tabulate all the statistics of the Texas Conferences and
publish them in the Advocate. Also that the Texas Tract Society publish
the same in tract form with such annotations and additional information as
will show in concise statement what Methodism is doing in Texas.
Vre call special attention to the work of the Texas Methodist Historical
Association. The work of each man connected with it is wholely gratuitous,
but of the greatest interest to cur people. They publish a Quarterly at one
dollar a year that is well worth two dollars in its size and mechanical
make-up, and no reading could be more interesting to lovers of our Method-
ism than it. It also gathers and preserves literature and historical facts
that could not otherwise be preserved, and which will make possible a great
history some day to be written fo- our people. We urge a more liberal
patronage of this periodical.
We have had before us the request of the Texas Tract Society for an
appropriation of $340 from the Boards of Church Extension, Sunday Schools,
Education and Missions, the same to be used to pay a small deficit in ex-
penses for the year and to pay the salary of a man to give his whole time
to the management of the work of the Society for the coming year. The
Society also requests the appointment of Rev. S. W. Turner as Editor-Secre-
tary of the Society. Believing this to be vital to the interests of the
Society, we, your Committee, recommend compliance with the request.

the United States live in dry territory. In the United States alone salo:
