64 CENTRAL TEXAS CONFERENCE JOURNAL
press hostile to our cause have been accepted by some of our
pastors and laymen as true without investigation. Investigation
has shown that all such statements have been utterly untrue.
We beg our people, pastors and members, to treat the League
fairly, and accept no criticism without getting the facts from
the League, or its friends. The League belongs to all of our
Churches-ours among them. We ask our pastors and laymen
to give it unqualified support.
As means of promoting temperance we also heartily endorse
the Home and State and the Texas Christian Advocate made
so effective in this work by our able editor, Dr. Rankin.
We rejoice to know that the Anti-Saloon League has launched
a campaign for nation prohibition, and believe that the day is
near at hand when there will remain in the United States not
one licensed saloon.
Your Committee recommend the appointment of Rev. Atticus
Webb as Superintendent of the Fort Worth District of the Anti-
Saloon League in response to a request from the State League.
C. W. IRVIN, President,
ATTICUS WEBB, Secretary.
DISTRICT CONFERENCE RECORDS.
The Fort Worth Record is a good record, and well kept,
however, there are a few erasures and interlinings.
The Waxahachie Record is splendidly arranged, well written
and very neat.
The Brownwood Record is in good condition, has a few
erasures, and blots. The Chairman failed to sign the minutes.
The Hillsboro Record has no marginal reference. The ink
used is not the same color as that used in the rest of the record.
Otherwise this is a very neat record.
The Dublin Record is fairly good in arrangement, penmanship
and neatness. The marginal reference is incomplete, and
awkwardly arranged. The record fails to state the preaching
services and who preached. The Presiding Elder failed to sign
the minutes. Some other minor irregularities.
The Cleburne Record is poorly kept, arrangement bad, and
penmanship not good. No marginal reference. No separate
official roll. Void in capitalization, punctuation, also deficient in
spelling and neatness.
The Corsicana Record is a model.
The Georgetown Record is very well kept. The penmanship
is not very good, but is free from erasures.
The Weatherford Record is poorly kept. No official roll and
no marginal reference. Pages are crowded and too many
The Gatesville Record is a model of neatness and correction.
The Cisco Record has no official roll.
The Waco Record is well kept.
R. F. BROWN, Secretary.
