New railroad project.
Steam Road May lie lluilt from
Scraiilou to Reach Tidewater
On Monday a corps of surveyors be
gan at Matamoras surveying for a
steam railroad down the Delaware.
Their movements v re marked with
seency, and nil nttenipts to get any In
formation regarding the project were
unavailing. All the knowledge ob
tained 'was that by Saturday they
would be in a position 'o furnish the
newspapers with the desired informa
tion, but did not rare for any publicity
in the matter until their plans were
It Is said that the surveyors are
acting in the interests of the New
York Traction company, and that the
plan is to run a steaAn railroad from
the eon I fields at Scrnnton passing
through the southern portion of Wayne
county, Green township in Pike, and
then to Milfoul by way of Chucktotvn
and thence tip the valley to Matnmoras,
where the road w ill cross the Delaware
river nnd across the Erie railroad by
a trestle and citnnect with the port
Jervls, Montleello and New York rail
road. The report that the road Is to run
from Mi Hold fo Scrantoii emanates
fiom Milford, although the people there
do not seem to have much faith In the
enterprise. The Chucktown route to
Scrnnton, however, is on the line of the
old survey of the Erie Railroad com
pany, which was made by Major Sey
mour before the Erie came to Port
Jervls. about 1S40. and Is stated to be
a feasible one. Stroudsburg Times.

Organizer of the Society of Metho
dists in America.
Today, the day before Thanksgiving
the Maryland Historical society of the
Methodist Episcopal church will unveil
a bronze tablet on the site of the Love
ly Lane Meeting house in Baltimore,
where the Methodist societies of the
1'liited States signed their declaration
of ecclesiastical Independence, with the
approval of John Wesley, and were or
ganized into the Methodist Episcopal
church at the "Christmas conference,"
The next day there will be Thanks
giving services ut the Charles Street
church, a beautiful structure, with a
wealthy congregation, which is the di
rect outgrowth of th humble society
of the followers of Wesley, who built
the chapel in Lovely Lane the year be
fore the revolution. I'nder the llower
bnnked pulnit and sweet-toned organ
the bones of Francis Asbury. apostle
of Methodism In America, lie, in the
church he founded In 1774, revered as
the tirst circuit rider and bishop of a
religious organization now numbering
millions In its fold.
The Methodist Episcopal church was
a direct outgrowth of the revolution.
It had no existence anywhere prior to
17S4. Wesley never contemplated the
formation of the Methodists of England
Into a church, but called them religious
societies of people belonging to many
churches, and recelvins baptism and
the sacrament from the ordained min
isters of the established churches of
England, Ireland nnd Scotland. He
was a clergyman himself, and opposed
to the preaching of laymen down to
1S44, when the Innovation was begun
by his recognition of the distinct "call"
of Thomas Maxwell in Bristol. He pro
hibited the performance of the priestly
olllces by the lay preachers altogether.
But for the exigencies created by the
revolution, nnd th cutting off of the
authorities of England In matters ec
clesiastical as well as temporal, he
would probably never hnve sanctioned
the organization of the Methodist Epis
copal church In the United States. As
It is. the formation of the church and
ordination of ministers for the llrst
time is a matter of peculiar Interest to
those outside as well us those Inside
the Methodist fold.
By the year 1766 Wesley hud been
preaching the Methodist doctrine of
"experience" for thirty years. There
were lay preachers In all parts of Brit
ish Island, and there were numerous
chapels in the large towns. In 1700
Phillip Embury, a carpenter by trade,
who had been a lay preacher in Dublin,
had emigrated to New York and be
come a "backslider." He was recalled
to his duty by Barbara Hicks, who
told him that unless he preached to
the followers of Wesley In New York
and left them In the straight path of
righteousness, God vould require their
souls of him on the day of Judgment.
Embury began to preach "in his own
hired house" in the city to a hnlf dozen
followers of Wesley. The next year
Captain Webb of the British army,
stationed at Albany, appeared at one of
their meetings, declaring himself a
Methodist, a convert of Wesley in Lon
don. In scarlet coat and gold lace,
sword and top boots, he stood behind an
improvised pulpit in Embury's house
nnd preached a rousing" exhortation.
The society at once became respectable
hundreds Hocked to hear one of his
majesty's oltlcers, and crowded a rig
ging loft on Williams street, hastily
lit ted up for services.
The congregation soon outgrew these
quarters, and under the Inspiration of
Mrs. Hicks, a chapel was built on
Golden Hill, now John street . The
church laws did not permit dissenters
to occupy a building exclusively as a
plnce of worship, so living-rooms were
provided for Embury and visiting
preachers. Mr. Embury himself made
the pulpit, and in May, 176S preached in
Wesley chapel for the llrst time to an
audience of 1,700 persons. Neither lie
nor Cnptnin Webb could administer
baptism or the sacrament. The next
year, Embury being but an unlettered
man and not gifted with eloquence, the
society entreated Mr. Wesley to send
them "a man of wisdom," sound faith
and a good disciplinarian, and with
respect to money we will sell our coats
nnd shirts to pay the minister's pass
age." In response to this call Mr. Wesley
sent Richard Roardman and Joseph
Pillmore as lay preachers, with JC.'d in
money ns a token of love and to help
raise the debt on the chapel. John
Street chnpel was soon tilled to over
flowing, nnd the windows left open so
that the crowds outside could hear the
exhortntlons. Mr. Pillmore took up the
work in Philndcli hln beuun by Captain
Welib, and soon hud a llourlshins so
In the mer.ntlmp Robert Strmvbrldge
had become an itinerant preacher In
Maryland ami had built the famous
log meeting house in Frederick coun
ty. Two traveling preachers were
working through the south, when, in
1771. Francis Asbury and Richard
Wright arrivr-d from England as mis
sionaries Asbbtiry destined to become
the apostle of American Methodism, the
organizer of the Methodist Episcopal
church, and the originator of circuit
riding, annual conferences nnd every
thing distinctive In church discipline.
When he arrived there were oniv fiaO
nvowed Methodists In the colonies. 3'K)
in New York. 23(1 In Philadelphia and 50
in New Jersey nmVIaryland.
Francis Asbury immediat ly began
to carry the gospel Into the remotest
regions, establishing the first circuit
nnd Inspiring converts to take up the
same mission in the wilderness. Soon,
everywhere along the seaboard and
back to the Alleghenles these lonely
men. railed of God. rode by day and
preached by night, a horse nnd a Bible
their only possessions. Refused n pul
pit, they prenched on the court house
steps or under a tree: refused shelter,
they slent on their saddle bags In tne
open. The llrst conference was called
In Philadelphia for July 4. 1773. and fif
ty preachers responded, ami scattered
again to carry on the work according
to the assignments made by Mr. As
bury. In 1774 there were no less than five
Methodist chapels built or building in
Maryland, besides Mr. Straw-bridge's
log meeting house. Two of these were
In Baltimore, one at the extreme of
Fell's Point In the bay, and one In
Lovely Lane, to be made memorable
as the s-ak of the council, which or
ganized the church ten years Inter. It
was located on a short street, which
ran east and west, between South and
Calvert streets. But the location was
a good one at the time, being In the
center of a large population near Balti
more street.
There were two assembly rooms in
Lovely Lane, where balls were giv-n.
and not Infrequently the prayers and
expostulations In the chapel were in
terrupted by the scraping of the fiddle.
Pious Methodists In sober garb were
Jostled by a beauty from some country
mansion riding to the ball on horseback
In low gown and slippers and attend
ed by dashing cavaliers. There were
many fine town houses In Lovely Lane,
and' fashion resented the erection of ft
rough wooden structure for dissenting
However, Francis Asbury laid the
foundations of the now famous chanel
In April, 1774, and in October of the
snmtt year Captain Webb preached in
It, and nil the aristocracy of Maryland
tumed out to hear one of the King's
Own preach In scarlet coat, with his
sword across the pulpit under the Bible,
for the olileers of the British army
wore their uniforms at all times and In
all places. In March, 1773. A.ibury In
spected the structure, and In April, the
conference met there, for the llrst time
in Baltimore.
Then the war came on. Four Eng
lish missionaries returned to England.
Asbury steadily resisted the tendency
to take sides, declaring that thi Ir busi
ness was to save souls nnd to serve no
cause but Christ's. In the norm Meth
odism was In hopeless contusion, the
societies were broken up, the preach
ers gave up their circuits. The John
Street cha:et'ln New York was occu
pied ns a barracks during the occupa
tion by Kritii-h troops. In 17711 there
was a schism between the preachers of
the northein circuit and those of the
south.owing to the fai t that the preach
ers in Virginia had ordained each other
and began to baptize and administer
the sacrament. This Asbury positive
ly forbad", and harmony was once
more restored.
But new conditions were gradunlly
forcing full churehlv duties nnd au
thority on these lonely bearers of spir
itual solace into the wilderness. For
hundreds of miles. In some places, they
were the only touchers of the word of
God. People desiring baptism could
not obtnin It, nor was there a parish
minister or communion table. Brought
up In Episcopalian traditions and hab
its, they longed for these consolations
of religion. They would gladly receive
these at the hands of the Methodist
itinerants. Not one of these men, who
felt they were called of God, but were
Importuned by pioneers who must pass
their lives unbaptized and denied the
Lord's supper unless the Methodist
could be authorized to administer
The end of the wnr brought a crisis.
Euglnnd no longer had authority over
the newly created Fnlted States, either
temporal or spiritual. In their dilem
ma they appealed to John Wesley. The
whole case of the Amerii-nn societies
was reviewed at the Bristol conference
with the result that Rev. Thomns Coke,
LL. D., presbyter, nnd Rev. Thomas
Vasey and Richurd Whatcoal, elders,
were dispatched to Baltimore, bearing
a letter from Wesley himself, giving
them full authority for ordaining
preachers and forming an episcopal
body for the government of a Metho
dist church of the I'nited States.
No more remarkable body of relig
ious men ever tame together In this
country for a more momentous purpose
than that which is known as the:
"Christmas conference," which met In
Lovely Lane Meeting house In Decem
ber, 1784. Freeborn Garretson, nn In
defatigable preacher, traveled 1,200
miles In six wees, calling the Itiner
ants, and preaching as ho went. So
that In a day without railroads, tele
graph, and with a meager private post,
he gathered sixty out of eighty-ono
circuit riders, from New York to Geor
gln, and got them to Baltimore in time
to meet Wesley's delegates.
Rev. Mr. Coke was a doctor of divin
ity, a clergyman of the established
church, who had been created a presby
ter by Wesley especially for this mis
sion. Both he and Dr. Vasev had the
clean-cut scholarly look of English di
vines who would countenance nothing
irregular. Dr. Coke was felt to have the
authority of a bishop, because Wesley
had declared that he saw no difference
between bishops and presbyters. But
he disliked big titles and preferred to
designate Dr. Coke and Francis As
bury as "superintendents" of the Amer
ican church.
Nothing arrested the attention of the
English commissioners more than the
genernlly youthful appearance of these
itinerant preachers. Most of them
bore the marks of hardship and toil.
Some of them had suffered Imprison
ment for conscience' sake. Francis
Asbury, nearly 40, was easily the senior
of them all. Only a few had been rid
ing the circuit over five years, and
some less than a year. They all had
about them the prestige and vigor of
youth. Their work of ten days has
stood the test of more than a century
ns a wise monument of human arrange
ment for the good government of a re
ligious body. They were all of one
mind nnd one heart. Casting aside all
precedent as authoritative, they looked
only to Christ nnd the apostles nnd the
example of the primitive church, feel
ing that they hail primitive conditions
to deal with.
The meeting house in Lovely Lane
was bare nnd rude, never havins been
properly finished, though used for nine
years. A rough gallery was hastily
constructed, and a good Methodist car
penter nailed some backs onto some of
the benches, fearing the preachers
would be exhausted by the long ses
sions. And they put in a huge stove,
that was kept roaring with dry wood.
One can Imagine by this account how
barren of creature comfort Lovely
Lane was In Its ordinary state, with
backless benches and no lire.
When Dr. Coke unsealed Wesley's
letter two Episcopal clergymen came
in nnd invited them to all come into
the fold of the established church, de
claring their ritual and creed to be
the same. "Yes, but our experience,
nnd practice lire widely different,"' re
plied Francis Asbury. Wesley's Eng
lish emissaries were labored with by
the clergy, they were invited to dine
by tlie .Maryland gentry and It was
even suijsesled that these lay preach
ers might lie properly ordained for
front ier service. But the men of the
Christmas conference had their declar
ation of Independence written in the
hand nnd signed by John Wesley, ami
they went on to bind themselves by or
dination and the adoption of rules of
Wesley's letter was dated from Bris
tol. Sept. 10, 17N4, and ran as follows:
To l'r. Ocke. Mr. Asbury nnd Our Breth
ren In America: Hy a very uncommon
train of providences, many of the prov
inces of Ninth Anicrl"ii are totally 'iiv
jnined lioni the Hritlsh empire and ercet
n1 Into Independent st lies. A civil
authority I exercised over them by roil
gress an I the stiite as-'eiirnlies. Hut no
ton ellh'T exenises or claims Hccl'i:'iasii
cnl authority over tlv m at all. In thin
peculiar situation come tiiou.-iinils of t'-ie
inhabitant or these states desire my ad
vice, and In with their desires
I have diavvn up a 1'ttle sketch.
The e.ise Is different in North Amerl. 'in
to what it Is In lOiiKland. Here there are
bishop who have l-gal Jurisdiction. In
America there are none, and bat tew par
b h minister, so that for some hundreds of
inllis there if none either to baptist,' or to
lolminlstcr the Lord's supper. I
conceive myself at full ihcrty. ns I vio
late no cr.'ir and invade no man's rluht
by appointing and renting laborers into
the harvctt. If any one will point
out a more rational and scriptural way of
feeding and K'lldiiu? these pour sheep In
the. wilderness I will gladly embrace II.
(He had asked the Knulish bishops to or.
daln one clergyman to go to till Held, end
they hail refused.) You ar- now at full
liberty simply to follow the Scriptures and
the primitve church. We Judae It best
that yon should stand fast In that liberty
wherewith Hod has so strangely made you
Dr. Coke first ordained Mr. Asbury,
nnd both were chosen to act as "su
perintendents" In accordance with Mr.
Wesley's appointments. In the min
utes it was written "or bishops," and
In the course of a few years the lat
ter title was generally used. In the
ten days the whole sixty members of
the conference were ordnlned to vari
ous ranks and consecrated to holy or
ders. The ritual was adopted, the
abridged liturgy according to Wesley,
his collection of hymns nnd public
prayer, nnd the Methodist Episcopal
church of the United States was or
ganized. At this time Baltimore had only 6,000
Inhabitants, but Lovely Lane meeting
house was already too small for he
evngregatlons. In the following year
It was sold nnd a new meeting-house
built on Light street, t In 17 this
burned down, and was rebuilt on the
opposite corner, the ground alone rout
ing 113,000. On the opening of German
street in lSii'j the Light street church
was torn down. A series of farewell
meetings were held In the old building,
after which the congregation purchas
ed the church and parsonage on Eutaw
and Charles streets lor SlliO.O'iO. It is
known as the Charles Street Methodist
Episcopal church, and is one of the fin
est in the city.
Lovely Lane wns obliterated bv the
Changing of the streets ut the cb ise of
the war. It took a careful survev to
decide on the spot whore the birthplace
of Ameriiau Methodism once stood.
The historical society of the church
derided to mark the spot with an ap
propriate bronze tablet for the Instruc
tion of posterity. Some time in the
future It is not Impossible that a statue
of Asbury may lie unveiled there. The
surprising thing is. that the Charles
Street Methodist Episcopal church does
not rchl'lsten itself the Lonely Ine
mor-tlng-humo. No other church In
America can boast such Illustrious; par
entage, nnd the revival of the old
name would mark it with enviable distinction.
