North Dakota Has Been Set Off by the Germans.
Hamburg, Minn., June 25.-The German Lutheran synod of the Minnesota and Dakota district discussed an interesting paper by Prof. C. Abbetmeyer, Ph. D., on Rome and the United States. The afternoon session was devoted to hearing reports on home missions in North Dakota and Montana. Rev. W. Friedrich of Waconia reported on the former and Prof. C. J. Hines from St. Paul on the latter.
North Dakota will in the future form a separate district and will convene for its first sessions at Great Bend. Greetings were exchanged with the synod of Minnesota, now meeting in Red Wing.
The synod advised every congregation to take up a collection to help the congregation in Winnipeg to complete its church. H. G. Pliefke, treasurer of the synod, submitted his annual report which showed a total income of $48, 794.13, expenses of $45,883.34, and a balance on hand of $2,910,79.
