James B. Orr (1898-1900 and 1907-1912 Whether present members of the church knew him in person or only by reputation, there appears to be no question in anyones mind but that James B. Orr was a highly stimulating personality. After his first Sundy in the Santa Cruz pulpit, the "Sentinel" carried a glowing account of this new shepherd of the flock. We quote about one- third of this news story: "Rev. Jas. B. Orr, whom the First Congregational Church of Santa Cruz has decided to engage as its future pastor, delivered his first two sermons at the church Sunday. In appearance, as well as oratorical ability, Rev. Mr. Orr proved himself well adapted to inspire respect and affection, such as any congregation should always bear towards its minister, thus promoting the union which should exist between a pastor and his parish. " As a speaker Mr. Orr fulfills those requirements demanded by the younger church goers. The young ladies and gentlemen who are attracted by graceful delivery and plain statements, as well as a distinguished appearance, will find in Mr. Orr an ideal minister. The men whom it is so difficult to convince that they may gather information and knowledge in the church, will certainly not fail to give their attention to this young man, whose sermons are saturated with wisdom, whose phrases breathe devout principles, whose logic penetrates to the heart, and whose utterances bespeak sincerity and a true Christian spirit. "There can be not the slightest doubt that Mr. Orr will infuse life and activity into the church, and that his beneficial influence will cause a revolution which will tear the church out from the temporary inactivity which existed since Rev. Mr. Taylor's departure. May his efforts be crowned with success!" James Orr came from the Park Congregational Church of San Francisco, beginning his duties in August 1898, over four months after Mr. Taylor had left, hence the reference to a lapse between the pastorates. Another splendid appreciation of the Rev. Mr. Orr appeared in the "Sentinel" in late June, 1900 at the end of a story of the early pastors of the church, presumably written by Duncan McPherson, editor: "The last pastor, the Rev. J. B. Orr, who starts at once for the East and Europe, probably never to return, although his congregation has unanimously refused to accept his resignation, has toiled in the Santa Cruz vineyard for less than two years, yet his success has not been surpassed, or equaled, by any of his predecessors. During the last two years the church has grown largely in membership and interest, only to be exceeded in growth by the Sunday-school, and one-half of the church indebtedness has been paid off within a year. At no time has Mr. Orr been more universally popuilar with all classes of his church and congregation, and at no time in the future could he sever his connection and create a greater void than his departure this week will. Only long years of acquaintance and friendship produce stronger ties than now exist between leave-of-absence pastor and people." After completing the special assignments named, Mr. Orr returned to the West and for a time was pastor of West Seattle Congregational Church. In 1907 he came for his Second pastorate here, just in time to arrange for the Golden Jubilee of the church in September 1907, when several former pastors came to participate in one of our most elaborate anniversaries. (See chapter 7.) About this time the second floor was put in over the old Sunday School room, improving the school equipment and providing an excellent social hall. In 1908 the East Side Chapel on Hammond Avenue was acquired, the lot being given by Mrs. J. S. Greene. For many years our church maintained a Sunday School there. Another improvement introduced by the Rev. James Orr was the change to the modern use of individual communion cups. His productive leadership lasted well through the year 1912. Santa Cruz Daily Sentinal I did find the front page "Farewell" article, mostly covering the same ground, and all his good works, and all the people who gave "vocal selections", and who made the cake and icings. "The members of his Sunday School class gave him a pair of field glasses, saying that through them they hoped he would be able to see his way back to Santa Cruz." A couple of items of interest... "The Christian Endeavor Society and the Sunday School teachers drew up very kind resolutions, expressing the hope that he would return after his year's leave of absence." And, "He will go almost directly to New York, from where he will sail for London, to attend the international Christian Endeavor convention. He has not definitely decided on his work after his return to America." I also found an article printed in the Santa Cruz Sentinal on February 19, 1907 reprinting an article in a Seattle newspaper which praised Orr for his fine work there. The Seattle article also had a paragraph on Mrs. Orr's work with the women's church group and the social club. Jim West Seattle Congregational Church "Book I 1899-1914" Page 1 Pastors: James B.

Page 101 Church committee minutes: West Seattle Wash., September 9th 1903 A meeting of the members of the West Seattle Congregational Church was called by the Clerk for 8 o'clock Sept 9th 1903. ......... The Clerk read the following letter from Rev. J. B. Orr: "Your letter of August 26th expressing to me the call of the Congregational Church of West Seattle received. For some time God has told me I would labor for Him on Puget Sound. I did not know just where but when I saw your work and its opportunity I felt this is my parish. The success of our labors depends upon the blessing of God and the hearty cooperation of His people. I trust you are calling me to lead the Church into large activity. The renumeration is smaller than I am accustomed to receive but I join in your sacrifice for the good of our divine cause. The church no doubt will grant me a months vacation each year. It will be the middle of October before I can leave the work here. I accept the call of the chuirch and crave your prayers that God will richly bless people and pastor. I am sincerely yours, J. B. Orr" ******************** And checking on Wallace Idaho on the internet I came up with Local History: WALLACE PUBLIC LIBRARY (from the History of North Idaho, page 1033) In December, 1902, the Wallace Public Library, near the corner of Sixth and Bank Streets, was opened with pleasing demonstrations. To the effort of Rev. J.B. Orr, pastor of the Congregational Church, the foundation and success of this institution are due and he, at present, donates his services as librarian. At its inception, he paid the first month's rent, $30. On going to a coal dealer, he was informed that the dealers in the city would undertake to heat the building gratuitously. Thus it was with the electric light company, and Mayor Connor's suggestion that Mr. Orr apply for aid in paying the rent met with a cheerful response from the city council. Contributions of books flowed in, Mr. Orr taking the initiative with a liberal donation of volumes, and he was followed by the Episcopalians, who placed a generous addition in the city library. A free traveling library is sent out from the parent institution. No fees are charged for the use of books. Two committees are assisting in this commendable work, the male members being representatives of fraternal societies in the city. ... the library contains over 1,000 volumes, and the patronage of Wallace and surrounding country is increasing A book at the library entitled Till Time Be Conquered by Elizabeth Montgomery gives the history of the first fifty years of the Alki Congregational Church. Alki was a tiny community over by the then West Seattle village. You could reach it by going around the point by boat or you could trek by foot or horse through the heavy forrest on a trail that went up then down. Close as the crow flies but remote secondary to geography. page 12 "By common consent the Congregational denomination was chosen. Its emphasis on Faith, Freedom, and Fellowship appealed to the majority. In Congregationalism they would be free to interpret God's Word in their own individual ways. The Church Extension Society was asked to supply ministers for the new congregation. During the summer of 1907 regular preaching services were held in the little day school. Mr. Strong, Mr. Orr, and others took turns, making the long trip out from Seattle for the purpose." An Illustrated History of Northern Idaho embracing Nez Perces, Idaho, Latah, Kootenai and Shoshone Counties, pbl Western Historical Publishing Company, 1903 P1034 "The Congregational church, of which Rev. J. B. Orr is pastor, is a thriving organization of five years/ growth. Previous to 1898 Rev. Jonathan Edwards, at that time of Wardner, came occasionally to Wallace and preached to the Congregationalists, as did, also, Rev. Samuel Green, state Sunday school superintendent of Washington. At present the Congregationalists are holding services in Masonic Temple and other halls, but in August they will occupy a new church building, now in process of erection, corner of Fourth and Cedar streets, costing $3,500, exclusive of the lots. One lot is reserved, adjoining the new church, on which will be erected a gymnasium and bath rooms. The Congregational Sunday school numbers seventy-five pupils. On alternate Sundays Rev. Orr preaches at Kellogg."
