Gov. Robert B. Glenn, of North Caro
lina, was unanimously elected presid
ing ofcer, and delivered the opening
:address. At the outset of his remarks
he rece!ved applause by stating that
while he had come to Washington with
his heart filled with love for the see
tion in which he lived, there were no
men living that loved. honored and re
vered "the great Nation in which we
live more than the delegates who are
here today from South of the Mason
and Dixon line."
After drawing a pen picture of the
-development of the country during the
last hundred years.- Governor Glenn
touched upon the devastation wrought
In the- South by the contest between
the States, and said the peoplebf that
section had gone ahead with a will to
redeem, reclaim and build up. He
spoke of the enormous production of
cotton. iron. timber and other commo
dities in the South, and declared that
it had risen to the place where it ought
to stand-"equal. if not superior, to any
other section of the universe in which
we live." But. he said, while the har
vest of the South was great the labor
ers were few. Laborers were needed
anywhere and everywhere, and he de
clared that the South held out oppor
tunities, and if they would come there
was no reason why they could not have
the same returns, the same wealth
and be even greater and grander than
,in any other section of the country.
But while men of brains and energy
were wanted, the South did not want
the riff-raff of the countries of the
Governor Glenn then aroused his au
dience to a high pitch of enthusiasm
when he denounced the methods of cer
tain immigration agents of the West
ern railroads to turn the tide of Immi
gration from the South by sending
abroad maps showing the marvelous
prosperity in the West, but picturing
the Southern States in black, in order
to show that the negroes have the su
periority over the whites; that the
South is .a place where very few, if
any, whites live; where men of money
only can endure, and where the white
laborer cannot endure because it is the
home of the negro and where the ne
'gro is made an equal partner with the
whites. "That assertion," he vehem
ently declared, "is false, and I herald
here today. It is :h'e duty of every
nest man in the Ujnited States,
hether he is a Northerner, Southern
er r Westerner, to remove this calum
nity rom the best and purest peo'ple
this untry has ever known."

Questions Relating to
)fare in Session
In the South. the Governor said, the
negro is given every legal right he is
entitled to. Their children are edu
cated as are the white children; they
are given asylums for their deaf. dumb,
and blind. and are everywhere given
the merciful hand: --but," he said,
-'there is one distinction, one line we
draw, and that is the line of social
equality." That, he proclaimed, could
never be. The races were separated by
the laws of eternity, because, he said.
the white man never was intended to
be put on a social equality with the
negro. He appealea to every one pres
ent to make known the truth and thus
"correct any error and lie."
The Session Wednesday.
Washington, Special.-A discussion
of immigration and an address by
Gustav H. Schwab, of New York, on
-Foreign Commerce and Ocean Trans
ortation" were the features of Wed
1~nesday's sessions of the Southern In
dustrial Parliament. The immigration
question was discussed by Senator
Simmons, of North Carolina, and Com
missioner General Frank P. Sergeant,
of the Immigration Bureau. Perman
ct organization was effected by the
election of Gov. Robert B. Glenn, of
North Carolina, as president, and oth

In the absence of Governor Glenn,
W. 0. McGowan, of Georgia, presided.
'Gustav H. Schwab, of New York, in
his address on the Subject of "For
eign Commerce and Ocean Transporta
tion," was the first speaker. He was
followed by Senator Simmons of
North Carolina, who spoke on the sub
ject of immigration. He said as a re
sult of the agricultural and industrial
activity and expansion in the South,
there was a demand for labor which
could =ot be supplied from its own
people, and that in consequence the
South was struggling with a labor fa
Nearly every section of the country,
he said, had claimed and obtained a
share of the enormous immigration to
the United States from abroad during
the last 25 years. The failure of the
South to get a part of the new com
ers not only accounted for the present
labor famine in that section, but in
many other ways, he said, had been
disadvantageous to the United States.
The kind of labor the South needed,
he said, was a debatable question. He
described the system of wages in the
South as being almost universally on
the share plan, and advised those ac
tually engaged in efforts to induce emi
gration to the South from other sec
tions or from foreign countries to pre
sent that plan, and not be misled into
a comparison of wage scales. If labor
ers for the present could not be gottein
from this country, it was certain, he
said. that with proper effort the right
kind of men could be obtained abroad.
Mr. Sergeant declared that 32 per
cent. of all the immigration to Aher
ica came into the State of New York,
the great bulk of the aliens remaining
in New York city. They do not, before
coming here, he said, look up the geo
graphical situation, simply going to
vhere their friends have preceded
'them. What was needed was to offer
advantages to aliens coming to the
United States whereby they may. gath
er some knowledge of the country out
side the great centers of population.
It would be a good thing not only to
say to the alien, "You may land." but
also to furnish 'him information re
garding the opportunities in various
sections of the country.

State board of equalization has taken
a iecess for two weeks. At that time
the board will meet to hear protests

OGDEN WRECK INVESTIGATION
Report Likely to Be Made Within a
Week Placing Responsibility For
,olumbia Cor. Charlotte Observer:
As forecasted in this correspondence
several days ago, the Southern's at
torney at the hearing begun before
the railroad commission Tuesday to
ascertain the cause of the wreck of
the Ogden spccial in the Greenville
yards on the morning of April 29, as
sumed the position that Engineer Jas.
R. Hunter, in charge of the special's
engine, is entirely to blame for the
accident on the ground that he violat
ed the rules of the company in coming
into the yards without having his en
gine "under full control, expecting to
find the main track occupied-under
such control as would allow him to
stop within the distance he could see"
-and that as the special was running
as an extra with right of way only
over trains of published schedules, the
Greenville yardmater, even' in the
face of the telegram placed on his
hook at 7.18 notifying him that the
special would arrive at 7.55, was in
no wise responsible and was not to
blame for having the freight boxes
Ien the main track.
The main witness put up to outline
and define this defense of the road
was General Manager Spencer, who
said that the telegram to the Green
ville office was not sent with the view
of curtailing the right of work or shift
ing trains, as practice showed that it
was not safe to supercede these kinds
of rules with respect to large yards
like those at Greenville, except by a
"No. 31 order," which having to be
I receiptpd for and checked back to the
dispatcher it was not wise to use on
a yard like Greenville's, for the reason
that it was bad practice to allow en
gineers to get into the habit of run
ning specials into such a yard not
under full control.
Division Counsel J. T. Barron, of the
Coast Line was present reprasenting
Engineer Hunter. Mr. Hunter's de
fense has not been outlined, but it is
said that his position is that he vio
lated no rule, but followed instructions
strictly and is in no wise to blame for
the Greenville accident.
Mr. Robert C. Ogden was not pres
ent, as he intimated in a letter to Gov
ernor Heyward a short time ago, he
might be. The Ogden party was rep
resented by Mr. J. E. Heges, a New
York attorney. Dr. Julius D. Dreher,
of Lexington, who was on the train,
was present as a spectator, as were
State Superintendent of Education 0.
B. Martin, Attorney F. H. Weston and
ex-Attorney General G. D. Bellinger.
General Counsel Thomas, assisted
by Division Counsel B. L. Abney, and
Attorney W. H. Welsh, conducted the
examination for the railroad, while At
torney General Gunter was present in
the interest of the State. Members
of the commission cross-examined the
Among the railroad officials present
as witnesses were: General Manager
H. B. Spencer, General Superintendent
C .S. McManus, Charlotte Division Su
perintendent P. L. M c Manus,
Savannah Division Superintendent
H. A. Williams, Assistant Gen
eral Counsel Thom, Assistant General
Superintendent H. Baker, Charlotte
Chief Dispatcher W. M. Lineberger,
Savannah Division Chief Dispatcher,
T. P. Baird. Columbia Shops Master
Mechanic C. G. Arthur, Charleston Di
vision Superintendent Heether, and
The testimony taken before the
commission was all on the lines that
the engineer of the speciai train
was running contrary to orders in that
he should have approached the yard
with his train under full control. To
this main fact all the evidence tended.
The commission will probably make
its report for a week or more.
Not Wanted in Augusta.
Augusta, Ga., Special.-The Israel
Epstein, or Ebstein, whom the Paris
poiice stated in last night's dispatches
was wanted here, was formerly a

drifting to parts unknown, leaving sev
eral accounts unpaid, and they were
put in the hands of a local attorney.
Lately, information came that Epstein
was in Paris and in good circum

The Making of a Christian: Helping
One Another.-Eph. 4. 1-63; Heb.
10. 24, 25.
As God is one, so should the church
be one. We are to recognize each
other as brothers of a common faith,
and help each other In the building up
of character. In Hebrews we hare
the further exhortation to "consider
one another," and only provoke unto
"good works." And this is to be done
by assembling together and exhorting
one another. This is what results
from the usual church service.
t The law of mutual dependence
runs through human society. We de
pend upon a thousand other worker's
and toilers for the common necessities
of life. The law is even more in evi
dence in the spiritual life. We are
touching our fellowmen on every side.
As Alpine travelers are bound together
by ropes, so we are by ties of influ
ence. We are in a very real sense
our "-brother's keeper." We are mem
brs one of another. Let us notice
how this law works in the Church.
Often the fact that we are selfish
and "seek our own" is a stumbling
block and a hindrance to our fellow
Christians. Our indifference toward
te sufferings or trials of our brother
may be the means of his fall. A fail
ure to speak the encouraging word or
do the helpful act may result in the
backsliding of a brother. A neglect of
helpfulness in a time of tria.l often
disheartens. A frown may do more
to discourage than a sermon ca-a help.
Having our way, pushing our plans~
without considering others, may be

Christ. The Master is our example
in this. He went about not pleasing
himself, but doing good. Recognizing
the fact that we have Influence, let
us use it for helpfulness. If you are
conscious of strength, use that
strength--not to harm, but to help.
Such a spirit of thoughtful regard
for the rights and opinions of others
will do more to recommend religion
than many sermons. It will attract
souls to the church and to Christ. It
will build up the kingdom of right
eousness on earth. By this blessed
unity wrought by the spirit of Chris
tian endurance the church becomes as

The other women and the disciples had
left the tomb and Mary was alone as
she supposed. *W eeping." Christ had
done much for lier, and she had great
love for her Lord. "Stooped down."
She stooped in order to obtain a view
of the interior of the tomb. "The
sepulchre." The sepulchre seems to
have been a square room hewn out of
rock, partly above ground, its roof
being as high as the top of the door.
12. "Two angels." Peter and John

istering spirits to comfort those who
were in such great sorrow and need,
and they gave explanation of what had
been done, no one else being able.
Matthew says there was one angel,
Mark says a "young man." while Luke
says "two men." "In white." This
was an emblem of purity (see .e.

"Borne Him hence." Thinking that
perhaps Joseph had ordered His body
taken to some other place. "I will take
Him away." She would be responsible
for His removal to a proper place.
10. "Mary." Jesus stirred the affec

by uttering her own name in tones that
thrilled her to the heart and created
the new sublime conviction that He
had risen as He had said. "Rabboni."

to Me. The translation "touch Me not"
gives a false impression: the verb does
not mean to "touch," but-to "hold on
to" and "cling to." "I am not yet as

Him by the feet and worshiped Him.
"Go to My brethren." First servants,
then disciples, then friends; now, after
the resurrection, brethren. "I ascend."

events of the day had been many and
important, and the apostles, except
Thomas who was absent, were prob

the Jews designed to molest the disci
pes. but because Christ had been put
to eaOth they haid reason to fear for
their safety. "Jesus-in the midst."
In verse 2G John refers to the fact that
the doors were shut in a way to leave
