Again to the Orient
Bishop C. B. Galloway will leave about the 10th of July on his official visitation to the Methodist mission fields of China, Japan and Corea, and will be absent in the Orient until about the middle of November.
This is the third trip Bishop Galloway has made to the mission field in that part of the world, and no churchman in the world is more thoroughly conversant with the missionary efforts and the future religious prospects of the Orient than this distinguished divine. The trip is one which many of the Bishops of the Methodist church are reluctant to take, and on account of the frequency with which the assignment is given to Bishop Galloway, he has become known in Methodist circles as the globe-trotting Bishop.”
During the coming visit Bishop Galloway will write a series of interesting comments on the various phases of the Russian-Japanese war, in case the conflict is still in progress upon his arrival, which now appears more than likely. He will convene the Japan mission conference at Kobe on the 25th of August, the Korean mission conference at Seoul September 15th, the China mission conference at Shanghai on October 6th. On his return home he will preside over the North Mississippi conference at Kosciusko, December 14th. The South Mississippi conference meets at Gulfport on December 7th.—Clarion-Ledger.
