Lithuanians, 3,000 Magyars (Hungari
ans;, and 1.000 Hohemlans. The pres
ence of 70,000 persons, almost all of
whom ary of foreign birth. In- such
a small portion of the country presents
a serious problem In many respects and
particularly viewed from a religious
standpoint. Inasmuch as It rests to a
great extent with the religious com
munity whether they shall eventually
become a blessing or a curse In the
land. The Presbytery for the two coun
ties mentioned has look at the matter
In this light, and under the direction
of Kev. 8. C. I.ogan, Ii. I., has suc
ceeded In establishing seven missions
among the Italian clement, and a large
number of Italian converts have Joined
the various churches.
An effort Is being made at present
among the people commonly called
"Hungarians," who. It Is claimed, are
wrongly termed by that term. They
belong to the race who long ngo owned
the country kmHvn ns) Hungary l'roper
and Btood on the Christian bulwark
against the Invasions of the Turks
when Constantinople fell. In IW19 there
were almost two millions of Calvlnlsts
among them followers of John Muss
and a mllUrm and a half of Lutherans.
These are the Slavonic remnants of a
race of Christian heroes. They present
a grand field for home missionary
work and should, If approached In their
own language, prove great accessions
to the churches In our midst. Night
schools have been established with a
view to Instruct them In the Kngllsh
language nnd there Is no doubt
this Is tho short path, to educate them
as citizens of this country.
