1. English Wesleyan. — A fund formed in the several districts which has for its object the raising of such an amount in each district as, being divided among the poorer circuits, will secure to their preachers a much larger salary than could be paid them without supplementary aid. The whole is under the supervision of Conference.
2. Free Church of Scotland. A fund provided for the support of ministers of that Church. The idea was probably derived by Dr. Chalmers from the Wesleyans; and a scheme was devised by him and made public before the Disruption, and is now carried into operation throughout Scotland. The amount of this fund for 1873 to 1874 was £152,112.
