History—In 1867 a Branch Brahma Samaj organised by students for their own benefit was started, Babu Krishna Kumar Mitra being its first Minister and Babu Srinath Chanda its first Secretary. This Samaj was* afterwards changed into the name of S. W. Service.
After the Cooch Behar Marriage in 1878 two resolutions pro­testing against the Marriage were passed at a general meeting of the Brahmas two elderly members named Babu Kali Kumar Bose and Gopi Krishna Sen deferring. Then the former was the Minister of the Samaj. So he was told that by the 2nd reso- lntion of the two he conld no longer continue Ministerial work. On this, both of the dissenting members with police force occupied the Mandir forcibly and the other Brahmas disallowed to go to the Mandir. The Protestant members took help of the law-court to have possession of the Mandir and the case was decided, ihe Mandir being a joint property. After this all the members decided that the Sunday Evening Service would remain in the hands of the Protestants and the Morning one being into the hands of the other party. The Utsavs and other festivals were also amicably settled. Matters went on for some time like this. After the Mandir was damaged by earthquake of 1886 the Protestant members came out and made a new building for their worship, bearing everything of the old one with the others in getting a recompense. The new Mandir was consecrated in December 1890; Pandit Shivanath Sastri having conducted service.
In 1888 a palli called the Brahmapally for the residence of the Brahma families of the Sadharan Brahma Samaj was established in No. 5 Municipal ward on the southern sido of the Bailway station.*Before that Brahmas bad been feeling some want towards the growth of brotherly feeling among them and mutual co-operation as they had been living spreaded in several parts of the town. The site was taken on lease from Maharaja Surya Kanta by an appeal which was made by Babu Srinath Chanda. At first some 4 families camo to reside here. Now there are some eight families.

English School about the year 1855, and started, along with Babus Govinda Chandra Gnha, and Tripura Shanker Gupta, the Mymensing Brahma Samaj and conducted every Sunday evening divine services according to the Adi Samaj method in a thatched house in Karavi Pada Road. At first these ttree only attended. After 5years Babu Bhagavan Chandra Bose, Head Master, Govt. District High School, father of Dr. J.O. Bose jointed this Samaj, when it grew in influence and was attended by abont25-30 people. Keshub visited here about 1865 December. In 1869 the Samaj bnilt its first Mandir in the Saheb Quarters outside the town, as the Raja did not allow any ground in the town. Daring the Magistracy of Mr. Alexander and by the help of Babu Gopikrishna Sen, a member, the present land 'was chosen for building. In 1886 this building was severely damaged by the earthquake and was restored. This was again destroyed in 1897. It is again restored now. The Raja supplied the doors of hia palace and the marble stones for the vedi. Kev. Giris Chandra Sen, the translator of Koran belonged, to this place, was a student and Pandit in the local school, a Minister in this Samaj for a time and afterwards became one of the apostles.

In 1867 Pandit Bijaya Krishna Goswami visited the place and preached and introduced Anusthanism into this Samaj. Babus Parbati Chandra Rai, Head Master, Giris Chandra Sen, Ishan Chandra Biswas, Ramachandra Banerjee, Gopikrishna Sen, Jayanath Agnihotri, Editor, ‘Vinapani’ embraced Anusthanic Brahmoism. As a protest against this, a “ Hindu Dharma Rakshini Sabha ’’ was started and the above gentlemen were persecuted and Babns Agnihotri and Ramchandra Banerji persected and left Brahmoism. In I869 the Mandir was built. In 1870 Sadhu Aghtr Nath came for a second time and conducted a Theistic Class, introduced daily prayer in the Brahma families, Many young men attended the class, twelve of whom were initiated into Brahmoism.

The Khantura Brahma Samaj.
Secretary.—Babu Kshetra Mohan Dutt, 12/2, Sitaram Ghos's Street, Calcutta.
Regarding the Samaj Babu Kshetra Mohan Dutt from Calcutta, writes.—
“A Brahma Samaj was founded by me in my native village, Khantura, 36 miles from Calcutta, near Goberdanga (Bengal Central Railway Station). The consecration of the Mandir took place on the 19th June 1878 under the ministry of Babu Keshub Chunder Sen.

Prayer Meeting was held every Sunday and a few Brahmas and sympathies occasionally attended. The Anniversary of the Samaj was celebrated every year in the month of June, when many Brahmas from Calcutta and other places used to come and a great agitation was created in the surrounding villages by Sankirtans and open-air addresses, &c. By the mercy of God a nephew of mine became Brahma and joined me. He was a great help to me. He established an Indigo Factory jointly with me with the object of securing an income from it to be devoted solely to the purpose of the Samaj. After a few years we were able to establish a Mission Fund from the income of this factory. An institution named ‘Manglalaya’ was established, in which were situated a library, Reading Room, Lecture Hall and rooms for the residence of Brahmas. There was a charitable institution called ‘Daridralaya’. Besides, scholarships were given regularly to the boys, girls and to Night School pupils.
It was a very progressive and prospering Samaj for ten or twelve years. The wife of my nephew being a widow of a Hindu family and not being educated, disliked our Brahma Samaj movement and began to put me in great trouble and expense by bringing law suits against me in connection with the estate of my nephew. Some time ago she took forcible possession of the ‘Mangalalaya' and stopped thereby the work of the institution. Just in 1903 she closed the doors of the Brahma Mandir. Prayer meetings have since then been disallowed to be held there.
Means are now being taken to compel her to give up the ‘Mandir’ bat we are not yet successful.
Thus the Khantura Brahma Samaj once so flourishing is now in such a deplorable condition.
