Church Students' Missionary Convention.

NO WRITER ATTRIBUTED

By the invitation of the Episcopal Theological School and the St. Paul's Society the Church Students' Missionary Association has been holding its third annual convention here in Cambridge since Friday. Dean Lawrence opened the first meeting of the convention on Friday evening with a hearty welcome to the delegates, saying that Cambridge was especially interested in missions as Harvard had been originally founded as a school for ministers. He then introduced the Rev. Dr. Crummell of Washington, who spoke earnestly in behalf of his own race in the south. Dr. Crummell was followed by Mr. Cutler of New York, who gave an address on the needs of young men, and by Father Hall. who spoke in the cause of brotherhoods. At the Saturday's meeting the speakers were Bishop Dudley, Dr. Brooks, and Bishop Paddock. It was decided at the business meeting that the money which has been set apart for defraying the expenses of the convention should be appropriated to aiding Dr. Crummell in his work in the south. The convention adjourned at the close of the Saturday evening meeting.
