Tho State Baptist Convention*
ANDERSON, S. C., Dec. 1, '93.
The Ministers conference of
the Baptist Convention met in the
first Baptist church of this place
on Tuesday evening of this week.
The annual sermon was preached
by the Rev. H. C. Buckholtz, cf
Chester, whose selection for a text
was 1 John 3: 1-6. After the ser
mon a paper on "Youug People's
Drganization in the churches,"
prepared by R. W. Lide, was read,

Wednesday morning at 10
Relock, the people of Anderson
md the guests of this he suitable
people again met together in the
Baptist church to hear essays on
subjects of vital import.
The first paper was read by Rev.
S. M. Wells of the Charleston
Baptist city mission, the subject
)eing "Christology of thePenta
ouch." Much interest was
nanifested in this paper and it
viii be sent to the Baptist Courier
or publication, .The next article,
'on the plans of the boards," pre
pared by Rev. W. J. Langston, of
fork, elicited much comment, and
Irew from the brethren the
?xposition of many ideas on this
ubject, all of which were a source
(f instruction to the hearers.
This meeting adjournod to
:onveue again at 3:30 in the after
loon, when the subject under
onsideration was, uThe causes
?f the growth of the Baptist
ienomination in the South."
'he essay on this subject read by
lev. J. W. Perry displayed much
eseach and careful and thoughtful
.reparation. The opinions
dvauced by this brother as to the
irobable cause of this wonderful
rowth was, first, the general
haracter ol the Bapfist ministry
rom the time of Shubill Sterns,
Samuel Harris, and others, who
rere the first to come South to

rord of God without partiality or

.uthority for his belief entirely
rom that source.
Wednesday evening the beauti
ul and spacious church was filled
o overflowing to hear a sermon
rom Rev. I. M. Mercer, of Green
ville ; the theme chosen was from
"For the grace of God that
jringeth salvation hath appeared
o all men. Teaching us that
lenying worldly lusts, we should
ive soberly, righteously, and
jodly, in this present world ; Look
ing for that blessed hope, and the
glorious appearing of the great
jod and our Savior Jesus Christ."
Mr. Mercer treated grace in its
threefold mission, its first work
jeing to approach men ss sinners
lost and undone, afterwards as
placing them in a training 6chool
3f affliction and self-denial, next
is having been taught of grace,
und having become, as it were
grown up children in Christ Jesus,
giving them the grace to look with
longing towards that gloiious
appearing of our Lord.
Thursday morning the woman's
missionary society held its session
in the annex. This was presided
over by Miss M. E. McIntosh, of
Society Hill. Reports from the
various associations were read by
the vice-Presidents, all of which
wera encouraging to some extent.
Miss Hyde, our city missionary
residing in Charleston, made an
interesting and helpful rei o t from
her work in that place. The report
of the central committee was also
read by Miss M. L. Coker.
The thanksgiving service was
conducted by Rev. Lansing
Burrows, of Augusta, and his
discourse was drawn from Matthew
"Render therefore unto Cosar
the things that are Coi a.'d and unto
God the things that are Goda."
This sermon was a powerful
one with many touches of pathos.
Thursday 'evening was devoted
to the discussion of the orphanage
and the reading of reports of the
Home Mieaion board. Short speech
es were made on tho subject of
the orphanage by Col. Campbell, of
Anderson county, Mr. Robert
"Watson, of Ridge Spring, the Rev.
Mr. Wilkins, of Beaufort, Rev. Mr
Ferris, of Winnsboro, aL-d Dr.
Ramsey, of Charleston. All these
brethren bare testimony to the
correctness and excellency of the
management of the Connn
Maxwell orphanage, and all say
that it is easy to collect for that
institution, as it is firmly planted
in the hearts of the people.
Brother Ramsey, of the. Home
Mission Board, said "that it was
not easy to exaggerate the im
portance of this work, and that
there is great responsibility along
this line.This board has established
one hundred and fifty-five churches
and now employs three hundred
and sixty eight missionaries. Over
$2,000 dollars has been contributed
to this department by the women
of South Carolina. The Baptist
house of worship in Cuba has can
celled its indebtedness. The free
dom of conscience of the Baptist
doctrines will doubtless commend
itself to foreigners coming into the
Southland from the tyrannical
The negro question also claims
the attention of the Home Mission
board and this momentous ques
tion we cannot afford to ignore.
No race has ever in the history of
nations made such rapid progress
from barbarism to civilization
in so short a time. This is due, of
course, to the fact of their ming
ling with a superior race. 'Every
negro knows the way to the Jordan,'
says one. 'They are all Baptists,
and when they profese anything
elsa, you may know that some,'
white man has been tinkerin'
The next report on this subject
was from Brother McConnell, of
Georgia. He is the humorist of
tho convention, and though a
zealous and ready worker has ever
a laughable and witty saying on
hie tongue's end. He is the best
man to make the last speech.

COLUMBIA, S. C., Dec. 2, 1893.
EDITOR ADVERTISER: A few lines
from a looker on, of the doings of
the General Assembly, might be of
some interest to your readers,
hence this scribbling.
There has been but little done
up to this time in the way of real
legislation. Some of the advocates
of the proposed County of Green
wood have been here in the inter
est of their project with map and
petitions and a bill for the estab
lishment of said County has been
introduced in the House. It has
not yet been reported upon by
committee. None of the important
measures have as yet been report
ed upon by the committees.
The Senate has taken a recess
untiL.Tuesday evening, to allow
the lawyers to go home to be at
their respective county court
houses on salesday.
The House of Representatives
has accepted an invitation from a
delegation from Augusta to attend
the exposition on Tuesday 5th
inst. I do not know how many of
the members may go.
Well, the election of Register for
Charleston County, an Associate
Justice of Supreme Court and five
Circuit Judges came off yesterday,
consuming four hours in its ac
complishment. The President pro
tempore of the Senate, Senator
Timraerman, presided over the
General Assembly in joint seseion.
Hon. W. H. Yeldell occupied the
speaker's chair. Both Lieut-Gov
Gary and speaker of tho House
Jones were candidates for the As
sociate Justiceship, hence the con
tingency for the honor of two Edge
field Representatives being called
upon to fill said positions. The
resignation of Lieut-Gov. Gary
will leave Senator Timmerman
acting Lieut.-Gov. of the State.
The Columbia State is quite bit
ter in its criticism of the results of
the election for Judges. The State
fails to see that the reform Legis
lature showed less partizanship in
their votes than did the Conser
vatives as none of the latter voted
for men of the reform faction
whilst such was not the case with
the other faction. They did not see
themselves as others see them.
