Church (Congregational), New York,

In response to this call some twelve or fifteen hundred delegates assembled in conference at Washington, December 7. Many letters of regret were received from eminent men and from educational institutions, expressing the fullest sympathy with the objects of the meeting.

A large number of the delegates were the chosen representatives of ecclesiastical bodies, local churches, theological seminaries, and colleges. The highly representative character of the Conference, composed of men of wide influence in their respective denominations, lent great significance and weight to the approval given to many sentiments by hearty applause.

It will be observed that in many of the addresses no record of applause appears; not because the audience was any less appreciative in these cases, but because the printer was.furnished the manuscript of the speakers instead of a stenographic report.

The obvious necessity of adhering to the rule that no question should be put to vote, rendered it impossible to entertain any of the resolutions that were privately urged in behalf of various worthy reforms and of many benevolent and Christian enterprises.

The Alliance is much indebted to the trustees of the First Congregational Church, who generously offered their house of worship, the most commodious in the city, for the sessions of the Conference; also to the Presbyterian Church that kindly opened their house for the overflow meetings. Our thanks are due to the Young Men's Christian Association, and to the Chief of the Seed Division of the Agricultural Department, for courtesies extended to delegates.

The success of the Conference was due in no small measure to the committees of the Washington Branch, who, by their thoughtful anticipation of every want and their untiring energy, laid under obligations to them not only the Alliance but all in attendance upon the meeting.
