Town Extension Brings Dis
McCormick, Feb. 27.-At an elec
tion duly called in the year 1919, a
majority of the voters within a ra
dius of one mile from the depot at
the town of McCormick voted to ex
tend the corporate limits of the town
to one mile in all directions. Those
outside the then limits of the town
of McCormick as well as those within
the old limits voted in this election
and a majority of either those inside
a::d those outside and within the one
.-nile raduis voted to enlarge the lim
its. It now develops that those on the
outside of the old limits refuse to
pay taxes and question the legality
of the election extending the limits
of'the town on the ground that at
that time McCormick's population
was over 1,000 and, therefore, the
four wardens who ordered and de
clared this election were without au
thority to do so inasmuch as the town
should have had six aldermen instead
of four wardens.
The town of McCormick, in order
to keep down possible litigation,
forwarded to the legislative delega- ?
tion a petition signed by practically
all of the voters residing in the pro
posed annexed area asking that they
pass an act in the legislature validat
ing this election. Some of the oppo
nents to the annexation then got busy
and forwarded a counter petition ask
ing that the legislative delegation
not pass such an act. So far the legis
lative delegation has refused to take
any action while the city fathers de
clare that they will undertake to cok
lect these taxes.
The situation presents a pretty
mixup. At the beginning of the year,
after having served as mayor for a
term of three years, Mayor I. C. Har
rison and the entire town council re
signed on condition that a new coun
cil be elected agreeable to the people
of the town and in order to keep
down friction. Accordingly a com
mittee was appointed to nominate
suitable men. This committee nomi
nated men whom they thought would
be acceptable to all and it now de
velops that two of the councilmen
are residing within the new territory
which they thought they had annex- j
ed to the town of McCormick.
Methodists Plan Education
The need of Christian education
and the aims of the Methodist
church's "'Christian education" cam
paign through which it is intended to
enlarge the work and influence of
the Methodist educational institutions
of the South were the themes of the
three addresses heard at the Metho
dist mass meeting at the Washington
Street Methodist church last night.
Dr. H. N. Snyder, president of
Wofford college, in outlining the aim
and objectives of the "Christian edu
cation" movement said that the
church had in beginning the effort
"annexed itself to a great idea." The
objectives of the movement were,
Dr. Snyder said, five. First it would
"get into the church a really ade
quate conception of the place and
meaning of Christian education."
The church as a church Dr. Snyder
said, was not interested in education
as education but it is concerned in
what principles, ideal and standards
motivate the educated man. It is con
cerned, he pointed out, with what the
educated men do with their educa
The second aim of the campaign,
he said, was "to make education more
religious and religion more educa
tional." The third objective was the
securing of trained leaders for church
work. The church of tomorrow and
the work of the, church of tomorrow
will be great or small in the propor
tion that its leaders are great or
small, Dr. Snyder said. The fourth
objective was the raising of at least
$33,000,000 for the Methodist schools
and colleges while the fifth was the
developing of the spiritual resources
of the church. America, which had'
found its sould in the war, Dr. Snyder
said, had apparently lost it in the
orgy and riot of money getting after
the war. Materialism was now in the
ascendency and the cultivation and
stirring of the spiritual forces of the
nation was the other way to serve the
country, Dr. Snyder said.
Former Senator W. R. Webb, of
Tennessee, who has been a teacher
for 56 years, delivered the first ad
dress giving tin audience, which over
flowed the church, out of the wealth
of his experience many a concrete
illustration of what Christian educa
tion can do and has done. Bishop U.
V. W. Darlington explained the gene
sis of the Christian education move
ment pointing out that the time had
come in the history of the country
when the people should stop, look and
listen. If there is one company of peo
ple who ought to be intensely reli
gious, Bishop Darlington said, it is
the teachers. The need of education
he said, is admitted by all, the igno
rant and wise alike, the only need be
ing and stressing of the importance
of Christian education and the sup
plying of assistance to the denomi

Harding's Party Starts on Way
to Marion* Ohio.
Jacksonville, Fla., Feb. 27.-Pres
ident-elect Harding reached here this
evening en ro\jjte to his home in
Marion, 0., where he will remain for
two days prior to going to Washing
ton, where on next Friday he will
take the oath of office as president of
the United States.
The Harding party left St. Augus
tine at 6:50 this evening, occupying
two special cars attached to a regu
lar train from the south. Here ? spe
cial train vus made up by the way of
Atlanta, Chattanooga and Cincinnati.
If the plans of Mr. Hrading are car
ried out, he should reach Marion
early Tuesday morning. H ewill re
main in his home town until Wednes
day afternoon, when he will start for
the national capital, arriving there
iometime after noon Thursday.
The president-elect is looking for
ward to his Marion visit, for it will
be. the last time he will be able to
greet his old friends and neighbors
in the next several months. Mr. Hard
ing's home town associates have ar
ranged for a sort of farewell to him
Thursday afternoon. If the weather
is favorable the affair will be held at
the Harding "front porch," where the
president-elect delivered many cam
paign speeches and greeted thousands
of pilgrims to Marion. On this occa
sion Mr. Harding will be presented
with a souvenir as a token of esteem.
The president-elect and Mrs. Hard
ing spent a quiet Sunday. During the
afternoon they attended a band con
cert and later received a few person
al friends. Mrs. Harding was the re
cipient of many offerings of flow
ers and her compartment on the car
resembled a garden of roses. Many
of the offerings came from tourists
who have been stopping in St. Augus
tine during the stay of the president
elect and Mrs. Harding.
Enthusiastic farewells were ex
tended Mr. and Mrs. Harding, both
at their hotel and at the railroad sta
tion. At the station a large crowd
gathered and gave the next president
and his wife a hearty good-bye. Both
Mr. and Mrs. Harding held an im
promptu reception on the station plat
form, and not until their train left
were they able to leave the crowds of
men, women and children who wanted
to shake their hand and wish them
