wc as a religious peoplo for tho year
IS) collected and paid out the sum of

in overy department of church work wo
ure advancing with gigantic strides In
building church houses colleges and or-
phan s homes in the supporting of tho
inlnlsirvi in sending miss ons to both
home and foreign fields and In the ala of
every movement for tho adv&ueemont of
morality temperance und benevolence
tho Disciples of Christ are nctlvo In their
aid support nuil encouragement.
These things are recalled with two ob-
Jtfcs it view viz: First to encourage
us In our work: second to remind you
that we In Oklahoma must bo "up and
doing'' or wo will be found In tho rear of
tho procession. Wa should not under-
estimate tho extent of the Held under our
special caro and oversight. Oklahoma's
area Is greater than tho great state of
Indiana but wo have more than broad
ucic. Seven st.tes of this I'nlon vl7:
Delaware Idaho Montana North Da-
kota l' tali Wyoming und Nevada and
th' two territories Ail70iiu and Now
Mexlco--pach have n smaller population
than Oklahoma. Oklahoma has in ii-js-papcrs
More newspapers than any one
of tho following states: Dolawaro Ida-
ho Nevada Knodo island I'tah Ver-
mont and Wyoming 'this shows that
the people of Oklahoma are an Intelli-
gent reading people and ready to receive
the truth whon preeut-d. Oklahoma
has long talked of her poverty her Ina-
bility to support preachers and build
church houses. Aro we not tired of this
tuue" Has the time nut come to change
tho koy from "Hats" to "sharps?'' Tune
liu cur Instruments tho talents Clod Iihs
given us to concert pitch sound anew
noto and sing a now song'.'
Tho products of our farms our whatt
corn cotton beuns llvo stork fruit and
other products will this year according
to a conservative estimate roach Sluo.-
UW.OOU. This Is til teen times the value
of all tl" gold taken from the mines of
Coloindo in 1MM. It Is more than all the
gold taken from tho mines of California
Montana Noitli and outli Dakota
tho saxo year. These states from whence
comes nearly a'l of our gold In ISO! pro-
duced but J.I95(XMXX) In gold. Add to this
tho silver product tGO.ooo.nootako all
tho gold and silver produced In tho
I nlted States In one year and they hard-
ly reach In value the product! of our
lields orchards and pastures. Our -people
members of tho Christian church
certainly havo tholr proportion of this
vast sum. Can wo not In this groat
prosperity build many morn church
Louses beforo another year shall roll
around" It Is estimated that wo have
eighty organized churches in tho terri-
toiy. Kuily sixty-live of theso havo no
liouso of worshln With the proper
elfort we should t.r.ild this year at least
twenty-live church houses.
lu tho year-book of 1SU7 Oklahoma is
given credit with a membership of 0022
with GO Sunday schools with .i.-txi Sun-
day school scholars und teachers with
10 Christian Endeavor i-ocletles with 19
ministers and with church property val-
ued at fSS.UU. Estimating tho popula
tlonof Oklahoma to bo a.VJ.ooo only two
and four-tenths of tho peoplo of Oklaho-
ma are membors of tho Christian church.
As small us thli may scum It I a good
showing as compared with the percentage
In other states and territories. Tho state
of Kentucky Is reported to havo 10J (XX)
members of tho Christian church. This
18 llvo and seven-tenth of tho population
of tho stato. Kansas reports 437.10 mem-
bers of the Christian church which Is
threo per ceut. of the population oM ho
stato Iowa reports 47100 members which
is two and four-tenths per ceut. of tho
population of tho state. Ohio reports C'J-
000 member? which I one and nine-tenths
percent of the population. Illinois ro-
ports 'to ".'SI membors which Is two and
llvo-tonths. per cent of tho population of
tho state. Arkansas reports 1.-(xjo mem-
bers which Is ono and two-tenths per
cent of tho populatlouof iho state. Texas
reports 3S.091 membors which Is ono tvrd
seven-tenths of ttio population of Mo
stato. Tonnrspt'o reports 35 3IU members
which Is two per com. of tho population
of that state Missouri reports 147100
memuers wuicu is uve anu iive-tontns
per cent of the population of that state.
It will thus bo observed that while Mis-
souri reports a larger membership than
any other state yet In proportion to her
population her membership Is s'lghtly
less than that of Kentucky From th's
list It will bo observed that thore aro but
four states viz: Kentucky Missouri
Kansas and Illinois where the members
of the Christian chuch are im ro numer-
ous in proportion to tho population than
In this territory. Moro than this tho
probabilities are that tho ostlmato of our
membership of 0u;3 Is several thousand
too low. It Is probable that today there
aro In Oklahoma nearly lO.ixxi members of
mo i nristiau church n this be true
