Interesting that the article says that the believers have no organization. Does it mean no organization in Omaha? Wasn't the Watch Tower encouraging Bible Students to leave the churches by 1898.

You may have noticed that Storrs was against organization beyond the local level. that's in separate identity vol 1.

Russell believed similarly, especially in this era. He would maintain that belief up to near 1912.

Thanks for this article. For me it is very interesting the mention of M.L. McPhail singing a song at the beginning of the meeting. McPhail was very active in those days... I have other quotation about him on october 1898 at Indiana and Council Bluffs... and now at Omaha

At Indiana... SMITH, Caroline M. “Letters from Earnest Colaborers.” En: Zion’s Watch Tower, 1898, October 1, p.295 & DARLINGTON, Alice L. “Letters from Earnest Colaborers.” En: Zion’s Watch Tower, 1898, vol.19, no.19, October 1, p.295 y 296; Reprints, p.2367
At Council Bluffs, Iowa... [RUSSELL, Charles Taze]. “Views from the Watch Tower.” En: Zion’s Watch Tower, 1898, October 15, p.299; Reprints, p.2368.
