WESLEYANS AND THE DRINK TRAFFIC. The representative session of the Wesleyan Conference was resumed in Wesley's Chapel on Wednesday, the Rev. F. W. Macdonald, president, in the chair. The Rev. G. A. Bennetts, Temperance Secretary, submitted the report of the Temperance Committee. There was an increase of ninety-six in number of Bands of Hope, with an increase of 655 in the membership. Adults' temperance societies showed an increase of 3,287. A special resolution was passed rejoicing that the London County Council had determined not to renew licences upon property acquired by the Council. Rev. Thomas Champness moved that, in view of the evils of the drink traffic in the Church and home, it was the opinion of the conference that no Christian man should be a manufacturer or seller of intoxicating liquor. He believed that the vast majority of them felt as he felt, but he wanted the conference to say so. Mr. William Smith, Nottingham, seconded the resolution. He had been told that this simple resolution would split Methodism. But he had too keen a memory of the Reform agitation to do anything that he thought would split their Church. Dr. Stephenson moved as an amendment that, while they all deplored the evils of the drink traffic, and rejoiced in the spread of temperance opinion and work, they declined to pronounce an abstract and indiscriminate opinion on action of individual Christians. He could not be accused of holding a brief for the brewers. The Rev. Charles Garrett, Liverpool, in seoonding, said he was opposed to coercion. Let them rather work the harder to raise the tone of opinion on the temperance question. The amendment was carried by an overwhelm- ing majority.
