Some of the Pickens mer
chants go a long ways around
to inform us that trade never
has been so good. We were
under the impression that with
the panic, low price of cotton,
public works on short time and
the busy season with the farm
ers, that trade was a little quiet.

B. J. Johnston offered the fol
[owing resolution, which, After
liscussion, was tabled:
Whereas, on the 1st day of
April, 1908, over 300 students of
Olemson College broke the rules
of the college and absented
themselves from .the campus
during the day, in violation of
the rules of the college; and in
so doing we realize that they
did wrong in rebelling against
constituted authority. As we
realize that discipline is essen
tial in all of our public schools
and colleges and would not place
ourselves on record as condoning
what is known as the college
spirit, or a spirit of insubordina
And whereas, we believe that
a great many widowed mothers
and sisters have made great sac
rifices in order to get the means
bo send their sons and brothers
to Clemson, the poor man's col
ege, to have them educated,
and to have their fondest hopes
blighted, their hearts crushed
with grief and their sons and
brothers disgraced by expulsion
for this little innocent escapade;
And whereas, we think the
punishment was out of all pro
portion to the offence commit
bed, in view of the lax and
loose-twisted discipline that had
been maintained at this college
prior to this, as offences of a
much more serious and aggra
vated nature had not only beeni
condoned andl winked at, but
actually apologized for; theres
fore. be it
Resolved,-by this convention:
That the authorities at Clemson
be requested to reinistate those
expelledistudents in September;
and in. the event they fail to do
so, that steps be taken by the
State to withhold its. ap~propria
tions from the college. .
The resolution below was sent
up by the Easley Club, and,
after discussion, was tabled:
That the chairman of the
Democratic convention of Pick
kens county bd required to pub
lish in the newspapers of the
county immediately after the
close of the second primary elec
tion a sworn itemized staLtement
of all money receiv ed by him,
by whom paid in, to whom paid
out and~ for what purposp.
On motion, itwas. decd tc
establish, a votipg fgrcinct a1
the Cent ral Ootton Mill.
The ieni~est for"Ev',,r mng
church was referred to the ex
ecutive committee with pow( r
to act.
The business being finished,
the convention adjourned.
A Great MeqtIng.
One of the most far-reaching,
uplifting and soul saving meet
ings in this town for many years
past, if not in all its history, clos
ed at the Baptist Church last
Sunday night. The meeting be
gan in the Methodist Church, be
1.ig conducted by the pastor, Rev.
N. G. Ballengei, assisted by Rev.
P. F. Crawford pastor of the Bap
tist Church, -and lasted nearly
two weeks, closing Friday night
before the last fourth Sunday.
On the fourth -Sunday the
mr eeting was continued at the
Baptist Church pastor Crawfod
in charge assisted by the pastor
of the Methodist Church and Rev
D. W. Hiottof Easley.. The in
terest and power increased with
every service. The attendance
steadily grew and at the last ser
vice Sunday night the Baptist
Church would not hold the peo
pie. At every service numbers
of people inquired the way of
life, asked for prayer, and when
opportunity was given would
connect themselves with the
church. Many strongholds of
Satan were wrecked and the
powers of darkness overthrown.
As a result of the meeting more
than sixty professed Christ, six
or eight uniting with the Pres
byterian Church, and nineteen
with the Methodist Church, and
thirty four with the Baptist
Church. Those who joined thc
Methodist Church will be receiv.
ed next Sunday, and those whc
joined the Baptist Church wil
be baptised the fourth Sunday
afternoon at 3 o'clock in the poo
below the jail.
There was no excitement, n1(
strenuous efforts and no undu,
influence in the meeting, but i
was evident to those attendini
that the Spirit of God was pres
ent at every service in great pow
er doing his work in the hearts o
the people. At the last servic<
Sunday night great interest waE
manifested, and many were ask
ing for prayer.
To show their appreciatson ol
the services of the pastors of the
Methodist and Baptist churches
in this meeting an offering was
made Sunday night to them of
$35.00 or more. May seed sown
Continue to bear fruit.
