Very interesting Parksville Let

' The union meeting of the, 3rd di
vision of the Edgefleld association,
convened agreeably to appointment
yesterday and day before. The
churches were all represented except
Plum Branch, and the attendance
' was good under 'the circumstances.
The discussion bf the subjects was
above the average. All the appointed
speakers were not present, but Rev.
Abiah Bussy, from Georgia, was
with us, and made some most excel
lent addresses. Mr. Bussey is a son
of the Rev; G. W. Bussey, and a
strong preacher/ We had with us
three Revs. Bussey, G. W., Abiah
and P. H., and Rev.'T. H. Garrett,
besides some strong laymen who en
tered heartily into the discussions.
The subject that possibly elicited
the most general interest -was "Sun
day visiting." Bro. Jesse Prince
?aid, one Sunday visitor was so im
pressed with the Ugliness of his past
conduct after hearing its sinfulness
discussed he fainted in his pew.
Sunday morning a .great crowd
gathered, and Sunday school exer
cises were conducted by superintend
ent Agner. Bro. P. H. Bussey lec
turing on th? lesson and*"at eleven
o'clock instead of the missionary
sermon by Bro. White, the ordinav
tion sermon of young P. H. Bussey
was preached by his first cousin,
RevT Abiah Bussey. This sermon
is said to have been a great one.
In the afternoon, a council was
formed, young Bussey was examin
ed by his uncle Rev. G. W. Bussey.
Young Bro. Bussey told his experi
ence and of his call to the ministry
Bro White o??ered the prayer, and
the Rev. T. H. Garrett delivered
the Bible and charge. The exercises
were impressi ve, and thus a noble
young man was set apart to the gos
pel ministry. May God bless him
1 and make him"abundantly useful.
. Our protracted meeting com
menced last night,? Bro. Garrett
preaching a great sermon from the
words: -I looked to my right and
to my left baud and co one cared
for my soul."
Bro. Garrett will do all thc
preaching himself holding one ser
' vice in the morning and one al
night and we hope for good re

own the higher m institutions of
earning, as they are doing a good
rork, hut favors giving more to
he common schools. He says a
>upil in thc rural school only re
lives ?10 per year while the aver
ige spent on the college students is
5400 each. Free scholarships and
'ree tuition are intended for poor
aoys bul? frequently rich men's sons
?et the benefit of them. Mr., Wells
is an ardent advocate of good roods,
but Rays we can not have better
roads without raising more money.
He favors levy upon all property
for. road improvement and wants to
abolish the commutation tax, which
is paid by the country. He wants the
people of the towns to, hear their
share of road tax as they are bene
fitted by road improvement. He
stated that he introduced a bill pro
viding a i mill levy for road build
ing. Mr.. Wells favors refunding the
state debt at a lower rate of inter
est which would effect a considera
ble saving to the tax payers. He
next spoke of the cotton weigher's
bill which he passed; also of the
cotton tare bill, which it is estima
ted will save $2,000,000'to the far
mers of South Carolina each year.
Mr. Wells concluded by stating that
on the liquor question he is a local
optionist, having voted that way
in the legislature, and will vote that
way again if elected.
Mr. Jerome H. Courtney said
close attention to his duties, had
kept him at home and that be was
not generally known, but that he
was not afraid for his character to
be searched into. He said* the peo
ple need in the legislature men
?whose needs areadentical with their
needs. He has lived in the country
all his life and has taught in country
schools for four years, therefore he
is familiar with the needs of the
country schools. He stated that the
towns are provided for in that they
have corporations to tax while we
only have land iii the country. Mr.
Courtney stated that while'Tanners
contributed $220,960 to the support
of Clemson last year they only fur
nish 56 per cerjft pf the students.
Winthrop should be more liberally
supported. The future of our coun
try depends upon the women who
stay in our homes, lie said lie was
not opposed to tire colleges but
wants to see the country schools
Mr. Courtney wishes to ^see the
roads improved and advocates work
ing the convicts upon the roads in
stead ot upon the state farms? Times
have changed. Farmers are now
business men and are demanding bet
ter roads and better schools. Favors
liberal support for , Confederate
veterans. Mr. Courtney would like
to see reforms in our courts so as
to curtail expenses. Too many cases
are continued from time to time.
He favors four-year terms for oran
\ Concerning the whiskey question,
Mr. Courtney stated that be was
grounded in prohibition principles
by a Godly mother and father and
Stillstands by their teaching. He
said he would not promise to turo
the capitol upside down'but promises
/ to do his^very best for the people.
The'first candidate for congress
to speak was Hon. C. W. Garrie
from Bamberg county. He has rep
resented his county in tho legisla
ture several terms and- brierly re
viewed his record. He favors tarif!
for revenue only, but is in favor oi
taking tax off of cotton only wherj
duty is taken off of farming imple
ments. He opposes the heavy ex
penditures for array and * navy and
favors larger appropriations foi
improvement of rural conditions.
He says if it is constitutional t(
build post offices, it is also const itu
tional to build post roads. Englanc
spends'14 times as much as Ameri
ca on heir ?rabil? roads, consequent
ly hauling only costs eight cents pe
ton per mile whereas in this conn tn
it costs from 23 to 50 cents. Mr
Garris believes that we should bo ?
united people. He said we shoulc
join with other congressmen in se
curing the passage . of legislatioi
that will b? beneficiaT to them an<
then they will aid us when WJ nee<
Hon. J. F. Byrnes of Aiken
also candidate for Congress was th
last speaker.. He spoke of his s weer,
ing victory for solicitor of his eil
cuit two years ago. Out of a tota
vote of 8,500 in the circuit, he rc
ceived 5,000. In Aiken county h
received 2.790 votes out of a tota
vote of 3,(300. He also stands by th
Democratic principle of a tariff fo
revenue only. He is riot in favor o
protecting the cotton mills but doe
favor protecting the agricultura
interests. Corporations secure legi;
lation but no lobbying is ever don
in Washington, to promote the fa:
mer's interests. He says the goven
ment spends millions upon million
to erect beautiful buildings, whei
some of the money should be spen
upon the public, roads. If the go\
eminent will make an appropriator
the state and county will cover th
amount. Mr. Byrnes favors irani
gration of a good class, but oppose
the coming of undesirable foreign
ers to compete with our labor. Gov
ernment should stop building exper

Account of Union Meeting Held
We noticed some weeks ago
ivh'ere More Anon" anxiously in
juired about "Subscriber." Nobodj
jeemed inclined to tell, but I feel
like "More Anon's" interest is too
sacred not to inform him. "Sub-,
?criber" has been suffering some
weeks with a broken toe-he is do
ing nicely now and feels, he
says, that brr ken toes are better
than torn ribs Now please account
this against him being such a de
linquent, won't you? And tell his
girl to have more pity.
The union meeting convened with
Rehoboth church last Saturday and
Sunday. We hardly feel capable
of giving full details of the services,
but know-that the queries weremore
ably discussed than heretofore, there
was more interest seemingly among
the general congregation than ever
noticed. We had with us on Sat
urday Capt, P. P. Burns from Edge
fiekl, he took such an interest and
discussed beautifully. Mr. C. M.
Mellichamp also , gave us
several excellent addresses. We
felt prouder, of our consecrated mod
erator than ever before. He gave a
splendid address on Woman's Mis
sionary work, an? gave such a
f-ensible encouraging talk. We glad
ly boasted of his leaving flattery
out, but took the historical and aid
ing views of this work. Saturday
was intensely interesting. Sunday,
this was all in all a precious day.
Early Sunday morning people came
from every direction and by 10:30
the church was entirely filled. Rev.
Lanham preached to the crowded
church and Rev. Littlejohn stood
on the dinner table and preached to
fully 400 people. There were at
least 900 ^people there. .We had
dinner enough, and know that every
body had a very enjoyable day. The
next meeting will go to Horn's
There are several visitors in thc
community. Miss Louise Lipscomt

The union meeting at ? Rehobotl

ar?tist Sunday School Conven-!
t?on at Red Hill.
Wednesday and Thursday last
ie annual meeting of the Edgefield
ounty Baptist Sunday school con
ention was held at Red Hill, one
F the. leading churches in the
aunty. Force of circumstances
enied us the privilege of attend
lg on Wednesday, but we spent
n exceedingly pleasant and profita
le day at Red Hill Thursday.
The officers of the convention
rere, Mr. W. D. Holland, presi
ent; Coi. S. B. Mays, vice-presi
ent; Mr. W. E. Lott, secretary and
reaeurer. The field secretaries ap
?ointed to serve for the ensuing
rear were, J. L. Mims, 1st division;
lohn D. Hughey, 2nd division, and
lohn G. McKie, 3rd division.
There are twenty-three schools in
he county, and twenty-two, were
.epresented, which is probably the
ullest representation on record.
The discussions of the topics'on
Wednesday were unusually strong
ind helpful, practically all of the
ippointed speakers being present.
The first topic Thursday morn
ing was^'Organized Sunday school
tvork," which waa discussed in all
of its phases by Rev. T. H. Garrett,
Mr. W. E. Lott and Mr. W. B.
The second subject, "The value
of a child," was discussed by Mr.P.
H. Bussey, Sr., and Mr. Jj L.
Instead of continuing the regulaT
program the time was given to Dr.
S. C. Mitchell, president of the
South Carolina University, who de
livered a very able address. Dr.
Mitchell his the reputation of : be
ing the most popular speaker in
South Carolina and he easily 'sus
tained it at Red Hill. Dr. Mitchell
said many good things and we had
hoped to report his address at som(
length but the very great demane
upon our space, owing to camplugr
meetings, union ?fmeetingi, etc.
makes it impossible for us to do so
We are confident-the words of jthi
scholarly, Christian gentlemen mad'
a very profound impression npoi
the lanre audience. A citizen' 9
Red Hill said to the writer: "Di
Mitchell's coming among our pe<
pie was an inspiration to them. Hi
address will be worth hundreds'c
dollars to our community." ?j?
A typical Red Hill feast wc
served during the dinner hour. Tb
hospitality of the good people, c
the west-side is boundless. Noll

light than to provide in unlimite
quantities on all occasions the ver

the address by Rev. J. T. Watt
the financial agent of the South^i
Baptist Theological Seminary. H
subject was the training of teac
ers for Sunday school work. Ha
ing been an active pastor as well
Sunday school worker, his remar
were instructive and helpful. 3M
