“Leicestershire.-The eighth Spring conference of this Union was held on Easter Monday at Loughborough. Special terms had been made with Midland Railway Company, and many friends from Leicester were thus enabled to be present. The conference assembled in the Baxter Chapel, in the afternoon, under the presidency of Rev. R. M. J., one of the pastors of the chapel. Mr. H.O. Bridgwater read the report, which gave evidence of great activity in the Union. During the past winter forty dissolving view entertainments had been given, and 2,000 meetings held. One society had left the Union, and six had joined. The total societies now associated is 102, 65 being in the county, and 37 in Leicester. The Union has two agents, Messrs. T. Palmer and W. E. Pike, and 39 honorary speakers, and a free circulating library. The subscription list reaches £150, the remainder of the necessary funds being obtained by means of special concerts and other entertainments. Satisfactory reports were presented by many of the delegates present. A paper was read by Miss Forsaith, of London, and a useful discussion ensued. The public meeting was presided over by Mr. B. Baldwin, and addresses by Miss Forsaith, Rev. J. A. Robinson, and other friends.”
