Wilmington, N. C.-Greensboro was
selected for the closing session of the
silver anniversary convention of the
United Daughters of the Confederacy
ere as the place for the 1923 meeting.
Mrs. R. P. Holt, of Rocky Mount.

cted president after a warm con
t between supporters of her and
Mrs. Jamqs M. Gudger, Jr., of
heville. Te latter's supporters,
ever, paid her tribute afterwards

Asheville chapter and a corsage

e daughters agreed to raise a
ion of the funds necessary to
fireproof and to preserve the
chapel at Washington and Lee
rsity, where General Lee wor
d while president of the insti
feature of the closing session
address by Dr. Henry Louis
president of Washington and
university. In speaking of the
ducational work done at the old
"Washington College" by Gen. Robert
E. Lee, Dr. Smith said that it is going
to count for more than all the glorious
military career of the Confederate
chieftain and hero. By this education
work, he said, General Lee taught ev
eryone of the great Southland self-re
nunciation at the call of duty.
When General Lee returned to his
home after the war he was without
a brofession; practically in a destitute
state, said Dr. Smith. However, the
speaker deelared, immediately there
was an outpouring of sympathy from
all over the world. The nobility of
England offered General Lee the old
Lee homestead for the rest of his life
without cost, but this offer, as was
the commandership of the armies of
Egypt offered by the Khedive of
Egypt, was turned down.
At Washington college, said Dr.
Smith, the educational activities of
the great fighter reads like a fairy
-tale. New departments were created,
the studies were made more practi
cable, and everything possible was
done by General Lee to teach the
young men of the South to live the
life of peace. This work went on until
the great chieftain was stricken down
in his home.
Two Ship Lines Got injunction.
New York.-Federal Judge Learned
Hand issued a temporary injunction
restraining federal prohibition agents
from molesting liquor on board the
vessels of the British owned White
Star line and the American owned
United American line.
The temporary stays will be heard
along with the similar case filed by
the International Mercantile Marine
and the order requiring federal en
forcement agents to show cause why
they should not be restrained from
molesting liquor on the 24 vessels of
the Cunard and Anchor lines.
The U'iited American line, which
was represented by George Adams
lius, was required to furnish a bond
guarantee that liquor on board the
eamship Resolute, leaving New York
would not be sold or consumed until
the vessel arrived at Hamburg. The
bond was double the value of the
liquor. Mr. Ellis said he took this ao
tion in order to get the matter before
the United States supreme court and
also to get the liquor on the Resolute
into a foreign port, to remain there
until a supreme court decision finally

Within two years from the forma
tion of the Society many new mem
bers were admitted in Charleston, it
was therefore, decided to hold the
meetings of the society in that city.
This continued to be the practice un
til 1825, since which time the meet
ings have been held in Winnsboro.
The school was broken up when
Cornwallis occupied Winnsboro in
In 1784, Rev. T. H. McCaule, of
Salisbury, N. C., was invited to take
charge of the school. He recommend
ed that it be erected into a college,
after the plan of the New Jersey col
lege at which he had graduated. A
charter for such a college was obtain
ed in 1785; at the same time a sim
ilar charter was granted to a col
lege at Ninety-Six and at Charles
ton. At that time the buildings con
sisted of two one and a 'half story
log cabins, about thirty feet apart and
connected by a frame structure of
same height, the upper half story be
ing occupied by boarders. The blast
of a horn at daybreak was the sig
nal for the Students to rise and dress;
at sunrise they attended roll call and
prayer; at eight o'clock they went to
breakfast; from, nine to twelve and
from two to five the time was oc
cupied with studies and recitations.
In 1787 he foundations were laid
for a large brick building, 44X54 feet,
and two ste%4es high. It was not
completed for some years. Rows of
cabins were built on the north and
south sides of the campus for the ac
comodation of boarders.
Afterwards during the Administra
tion of J. W. Hudson under whom
froni 1834 to 1858, the institution ac
quired a reputation coextensive with
the limits of the Southern States, the
building was greatly enlarged. First
a three story brick building was add
ed to the rear and then similar ad
ditions were made to the north and

A one-story brick building was soon
afterwards erected on the original
foundation, at a cost of about $3,500.
In 1878 a public graded school was
established, by consent of the Mt.
Zion Society, under the able man
agement of Mr. R. Means Davis.
This has been continued until the
In 1885, just one hundred years
from the granting of the original
charter, it was determined, if possible,
to revive the collegiate feature of
the Institute, and in connection with
the graded school, to furnish to the
youth of our county the opportunity
of obtaining a complete, practical ed
ucation at home, at a minimum cost.
After various plans had been discuss
sed and abandoned, a joint meeting
of the Mount Zion Society and the
citizens of the town was held, at
which it was determined to issue
bonds of the town to the amount of
$7,500 for the purpose of erecting
such additional buildings as were
Accordingly on the 25th day of
March, 1886, ground was broken for
the foundation of a large and well
arranged brick building. This con
Itained eight large, well lighted and
ventilated school rooms, furnished
throughout with improved seats,
desks, and all necessary apparatus.
Under the management of the able
and efficient corps of teachers now
employe'd, the number of pupils was
largely increased during the past
year, thus encouraging the hope that
the Institute will soon be again, as
in olden time, a credit to our town
and blessing to our whqle communi
