The Lien-Chou Martyrdom free pdf Excerpt from The Lien-Chou Martyrdom: The Cross Is Still Upheld at Lien-Chou The whole Christian world has been shocked by the terrible tragedy at Lien-chou, China. Lien-chou is a city of about 50,000 inhabitants in the northern part of the Province of Kwang-tung. It is about 250 miles from Canton, but as the only route is by a winding and at places rapid river, which is navigable only for small boats, the journey from Canton ordinarily occupies three weeks. There are innumerable villages in the neighborhood so that the population of this field which the Lien-chou missionaries were expected to work was about one million. The nearest foreigners were some Baptist missionaries three and a half days' journey westward and some English and German missionaries four days eastward. Northward the nearest missionaries were our Presbyterian missionaries at Chien-chou of the Hunan Mission who were five days' journey away. Our work at Lien-chou was begun in 1889 by the Rev. Dr. Henry of Canton, who had previously visited it on his itinerating tours. A chapel was built in 1897. The first missionaries regularly stationed there were Dr. and Mrs. Machle, Rev. and Mrs. Lingle (now in the Hunan Mission) and Miss Louise Johnston. Dr. Chesnut was added to the force in 1894. Rev. and Mrs. Rees F. Edwards joined the station in 1898, but were in this country on furlough during the trouble at Lien-chou. At the time of the outbreak the work included the care of the church, two hospitals, one for men and one for women, and boarding schools for boys and girls, the latter at Sam Kong, ten miles distant. Last year Dr. Chesnut treated at the Womans' Hospital 5,479 patients. Dr. Machle at the Men's Hospital treated 7,577 patients. Converts multiplied until in the city of Lien-chou there was a church with an adult membership of over 300- and the congregation had just completed a handsome new church edifice seating 700 people.
