last Thursday afternoon From this port which wd take from the Courier Journal It will be seen that the work on the school building will be commenced at an early date The Board of Education of the Louis ile Conference of the Methodist Epis copal Church at the meeting held yesterday afternoon and evening at the Walnut street Methodist church decided to begin at once the erection of a preparatory school at Columbia and if possible to open the doors to students- In September of this year The board has decided that 810000 should be expended for the grounds and buildings and that the school should have an dowment fund of 810000 Mrs Cath A Wilson bequeathed 96000 to he endowment fund and the board has determined to raise the additional 84000 deemed necessary for the proper conduct of the institution Those in attendance at the meeting yesterday were the Rev R W Brow der of Bowling Green chairman the Gross Alexander the Rev F M of Henderson the Rev W C of Elkton Rev A P Lyon ElIzabethtown the Rev C R Payne of Columbia the W F Lloyd the Rev Joseph T Chandler of Franklin and Messrs M O Hughes of Bowling Green DB Estes of Rus and J R Hindman of Co lumbia Messrs W W Bradshaw and S Harris of Columbia were pesent visitorsIThe gentlemen from Columbia reported that the members of the Methodist Church and citizens generally of Columbia had raised over 8000 for the- uilding of the school and expected to be able to give the board theI necessary 810000 It was then decided to begin the work of construction- as soon as the plans could be completed and to raise the endowment fund 810000 An Executive Committee composed of Messrs Browder LyonI and Lloyd was appointed to take charge other matter and look after the buslI ness of the school until it was ready to be opened A second committee com osed of Messrs Alexander Lyon and was named to consider the quesc of a faculty and to make the nec essary appointments at the proper time The board passed resolutions thank the citizens of Columbia and Adair for their interest in the school and extending the boards congratulations on the ease with which the money for the erection of the school has been The school will prepare students for all colleges but the principal is expected to be in preparing for Vanderbilt University The following is an exact copy of theI matter entered to record In view of the fact that certainIfriends in Columbia signers of per guaranteeing to the Educational Board 87000 for the school building and grounds have expressed a desire have definite assurance from the Board as to the securing of a 810000 endowment fund and 82000 building fund for said school from the Conference the Board hereby makes the fol lowing statement of facts and purpo ses At the session of the Conference- In Columbia last October 1902 the Board volunteering offered to provide 82000 to be raised in the Conference outside of Columbia District and to be applied to the building fund In its report to the Conference the lowing language was used The Board believes these amounts can be raised and is willing to undertake the same with your cooperation uurd rui carry these plans into fect we ask first that the Conference request tbe appointment Rev Chas R Payne as Financial Agent of this Board who will first work within the bounds of the Columola District to sist in raising the amount required and tben go outside the District to raise the 82000 and collect subscriptions already due This reqnestof the Board was unan- Imously ratified by the Conference and the Bishop appointed Rev C R Payne to the work He is now engag ed in this cause and it is the full pur pose of the Board to have him or some other good man in the field nntil the amount is raised 2 While the Conference was in ses sion Oct 1902 mention was made Incidentally that a certain person no name being given had arranged to give 810000 as an endowment fund should a school be esttblished by the Board at Columbia At the time only one or two members of the Board knew the name of the person Shortly after ward Mrs Catherine Wilson died and when her will was admitted to probate it was found that she had left as an endowment fund to the Lindsey Wilson Training School at Columbia a sum of 86000 thus lacking 84000 of giving the amount that our Informant thought had been given and that had been incidentally referred to in the public meeting in Columbia When the Board met in Columbia in December 1902 the situation was canvassed among ourselves and it was unani mously agreed that we would raise enough money by such methods as are open to us as to bring the gift of Mrs Wilson up to 810000 In order to do this we now have in bank nearly 82000 which we have set aside to add to the Wilson bequest and it Isour purpose to continue an agent in the field until such time as the full 810000 is secured Moreover the Board hereby guaran tees to pay the school at Columbia an nually beginning the day it opens sum equalizing the interest at slxper cent on any delict that may exist In the Wilson bequest until such time as the full amount of 810000 has been provided for the endowment- In conclusion On just such assur ances as the forgoing all our great ed ucational enterprises In the Methodist Church have been built up Ifthe cit Izens of Columbia will cooperate with us we will guarantee them a school of which they will be Justly proud Be lieving they will do so we are THE EDUCATIONAL BOARD L C W F LLOYD SECRETARY Resolved That the Board express great confidence In the citizens of Columbia and Adair county guarantee ing the amount received to secure the school and believe that they will fully and faithfully carry out the purposes of the Board In securing this guaran tee They express also great satisfac tion with the
