Goldeboro. N. C, i>ecembcr 4.?The
promise is that befoie the ilose of the
prese.il ??ssion of the Baptist Stal*
Convention of North Carolina, a dis?
cussion of more than usual bstereel
will tak? place on the tloor relative to
true control of the educational institu?
tions of the i or.vcntion. and the con?
trol of the Baptist orpjianage. at
Thomatville.
A resolution was presented to-da>
recommending that the Legislature be
petitioned to make such changes in
the. charter of these institutions as to
put them under the sole control of the
trustees Ol t!?? St.it.- convention, the1
trust*N s if the CO veution to be cm-:
powe> ? i to appoint coasBaitteea fee each
of thesa Institutions to act under the
euperv.si ?!. of tb< BS trustees. After:
this resolut ton had been eaTered, Bavins
Cade presented a paper recommending
thst a petition be present- d to lh? 1/ t
lslsttire i'i grant a chatte to the
Baptist State Convention to enable .t i
to take each control as that named In
the previous paper.
Thes papers were referred to a
committee of th ee, and when the re?
port ?'f t.'.Mt committee is submited It
is anticipated tiiat much lively discus?
sion will ensue This wh<de matter has
grotv n out of the (act that other'
schools. i. gun as denominational
schools, have drifted from church coll-;
trol, as the result of taking steps'
UrhOrebt th< might secure larre en?
dowment and Other gifts P:oni otherj
eources.
Several Important reports w>"re sub- ?
tnitted to the convention to-dey. Among I
there were: The reports of the board;
nr missions the board of education, the-'
board of home missions, the commit-j
t-* s of ministerial education, laymen's j
rnissionary movement. Bap:lrt Young]
People's L'nion snd the Theological.'
Seminary.
In connection with the consideration,
of the report on the seminary, educa-j
tion pledues for the r> minary at Louis-j
Tille were taken The report recom-|
mended that the State eonvention raised
$'. ."'"> for Wake Korest Collcprv and
0?0 for the seminary the coming year.
The pledges amounted to more than
S 1.000.
It is probable no statement more.
Striking was made than thst involved!
In the followir.e quotation us?vd in con-!
nection with the report on ministerial'
education: "The greatest danger coli
frontMnj the Church of Christ inj
America to-day is the possible decad?
ence of the pulpit Lett ttn? pulpit de-j
cay and the cause of Christ is lost.'
Nothing can take the place of preach-1
ing. There is no power under heaven'
equal to a <iod-losp!red pulpit. An?
thems and hymns, p^sponslve readings'
and recitations all have their place,]
and when rightly used are means of
grace, but all of them put together,
cannot take th- plaee of the exposi?
tion of God's word by a man whose
lips havie been touched by a coal from
Cod's altar. An Ignorant pulpit is thej
worst of all scourges. An ineffective
pulpit is the most lamentable of all
scancsle. The cause of Christ Is hope-1
leaalp handicapped and blocked, when'
Chtiftian preachers forget how to]
pre.u h. W.- must guard the pulpit
?with all diliger.ee. for out of it are the)

Mr. WilliaaM de? tared Judge Arch-J

however, under the ajoeatiaaa of R?- ?

?What did Judge Archbald do for;

the proflts from the coal dump?"' de i
iiiaiided Hi pres< ntative Webb.
?it was none of anybody's bualnet >
if l wanted to give it lo him,'' retorted i
Williams.
To this he later added that the in- I
tereat af Judge Archibald resulted
from "what he did for me," a;.d "it
was partly through his Influence that!
I got the options."
The u-al. al outlined by Mr. W'l
.latus, began when he asked foi ;
fudge Archbald'S assistance in getting
an option from the Hillside Company.
Judge Arclibald. he said, gave him a

al the Hillside Company, but Captain,
Ma) declined ta giv>- h'ai an optu>n aal

Judge Archbald 1 did not get it, and;
he s.iid no would see about It." said;
Williams.

purporting to assign part of Mr. WH-j

William P. Bolatid and a "silent ps.rty"
supposed to be Julge Archbald.

A. B \\ ortliii.glon. counsel for the'
accused, declared the paper had been,
prepared as a "damning piece of evi-j
dence" in the offices of William I*. j
Bruland, of Scranton. and that It i
"shows part of the conspiracy against ',

The Senate finally was forced to'

During the caucus Representative
Bulaftf stated that the lawyers of the
House are opposed to the resolution.]
and that it Is a plain open and - >?.t

property if he chooses not to. It is
Understood that Representative Mann,
minority leader, and Representedv?

against the resolution.
