to make it pleasant.
Those attending the conference
were met at Alston and conveyed
to the church where a large crowe
awaited their arrival. Early
Thursday morning, long before
the conference began, the writei
met two intellectual giants. Thej
were L. A. Hawkins LL. B. and
S. J. McKnight. They franki}
told me that they wanted me
and all concerned to know thal
they were candidates for election
to the General Conference. After
they had conversed with me, dis
playiog their knowledge of the
church and the legislation needed
for it. I became compelled tc
admit that those two live men
are worthy of the honor they seek.
In his speech before the con
ference, S. J. McKnigt said that
he wanted to go to the General
Conference because he knew the
wav; becatitee, as sorhe new men
would be sent, he would be
needed to pilot them about; Prof
Hawkins said that he wanted to
go because of his efficiency, man
hood, and principles; because he
hid the courage to striked in the
right way, at any evil. ?He said
that he wanted delegates" to the
electoral college to come down
there, not in any man's pocket,
but governed by principle.

elected secretary. The Rev. Dr.
Curry of St Matthews and the
Rev. I. J. Pruitt were introduced
and they made it known that
they too were candidates for

that he is able to right; some
wrongs. He wants the discipline
so changed that women may be

general conference. Rev. I. J.
Pruitt gave satisfactory assur

doctrinal discourse. Saturday J.
