PRESBYTERIAN DIVINES ARE BANQUETED. On Monday evening leading Presby tcrians of Pomonn, Azusa, Glcudorn and. Covina gathered by invitation at Hotel Vendomo to meet at the banquet board Dr. A. W. Halsoy, of New York, general secretary of the Foreign Mission Board, and the .Rev. If. U-. Underwood, D. D., the senior .Presbyterian missionary ol' Korea, in which field he has so successfully labored since 1884. Following a splendid dinner served by our host, J. J. Fitzgerald, tho guests, in whose honor the affair was planned, were introduced by the Rev. Mr. Richardson, pastor of the A/.usa Presbyterian church, who acceptably filled the position as toast master during the evening. Dr. Halsey spoke briefly on the work being accomplished by tho Foreign Mission Board, which is now supporting 1,OUO missionaries at an annual outlay of $1,500,000. it is Dr. Ualsey.'s opinion that in less than five years every portion of the non-Christian world will be reached by the missionaries of the various evangelical churches. The hearty co-operation of all the churches, which has made possible a systematic division of the work in tho various fields, has made thio herculeiican task possible. Kev. H. G-. Underwood was introduced by Mr. Richardson as "The Wonderful Man with the Wonderful History." Mr. Underwood was the first Presbyterian missionary in Korea and his intimacy with the emperor has him a power in the "Little Hermit Kingdom." His wife, who is also u medical missionary, is physician to the empress. During the course of his address Mr. Underwood said in part: "The work in Korea is far ahead of the missioutiry and that it is impossible for him to cope with the same. Opportunities -for new work that, would reach whole vil; Jages". aiid;'communities ag#y« are numerous''and l '*p s l^steiii]^' ! buife ca be seized. The whole nation, from -fctiB' Emperor and his officials-down to the lowest peasant and coolie in the land, seems to have confidence in the American missionaries; and when their political troubles began to increase, while they realized that the missionary was not there to render any political assistance, they did feel that he at least was their friend. And when, with Peter of old, he replied, "Silver and gold have I none, but such as I have I give unto you," they have seemed ready to receive that which the missionary offers. All over Korea they arc asking for an education. In many places they are demanding a Christian education, and they are, in a peculiar way, asking for this at the hands of the American people. They are asking for books, and as Korea has no native literature worthy of the name, we have the privilege of giving her a literature in the native script which shall be thoroughly Christian. Tho Old Testament, too, must bo given these people in their own tongue. All this translation, literary and educational work must be done in addition to the vast church work which is ours. "It is because the doors are all wide open; the people longing for salvation; the multitudinous churches calling for leaders; the academies, college, and theological seminary needing professors; trie nation needing a literature it is our privilege to make ''hrist ian; the liiblo translation shamefully urgent; — it is because we arc years behind in our work and that work keeps rushing on while we lag behind more and more; because Cod has led the way and we ought to be working Inside Him, instead of following from afar; because a nation seems ready to be won for ('hrist if We sei'.e the pivscnl Oiiportu- nity; for these reasons, the Hoard of Foreign Missions, with can-fill thought! and businesslike foresight, is calling for twenty men and their wives, and, for six lady workers to go to Korea at j once, and asks our church to contribute towards this privileged work a special sum sufficient for the Kami-. Never before has the church of the living Cod needed to pray :i* now that the Lord of the harvest will forth laborers into His harvest.'' The evening throughout, was a most enjoyable one, and Hole! \Vndomc, un- ler the management of .1. J. Fit/gcr- ald, is becoming celebrated thioiighuut the valley for evening dinner parties. Dinner guesJs on .Sunday last at the home of Principal find Mrs. A. II. Culling were Mis. and Miss Briigman of Pasadena, and Mr. and Mrs. Hi very Keiin of San Mateo. ANNUAL MEETING AND SUPPER AT CHRISTIAN CHURCH. Last Monday evening about two hundred members of the Christian church met together to review the work of the last year. The church was beautifully decorated with oiilln lilies and Japanese japon ien. The pastor reported that the growth of the church in numbers and spirituality during the year was most gratifying. One hundred and fifteen new members were enrolled, seventy-five of whom were by confession of faith. The present membership is about ,'!.'!f>.
