The General Conference of the M. E. Church . . .

. . . in the United States will meet in Philadelphia the first week in May, and continue its sessions from four to six weeks. – This body meets only every four years which accounts for its length. The question of the extension of the ministerial term from two to three years, change in the office of Presiding Elder, and the introduction of lay delegates will be among the most important matters discussed.
