REV. GEO. E. DAVIS WILL SERVE
BAPTIST CHURCH HERE.
His Congregation at Clifton Forge
Regret His Leaving and Give Hin;
Rev. Geo; E. Davis, who was re
cently called to the pastorate of the
Baptist church of this city, has ac
cepted the same, and will enter upor..
his duties here in a few weeks. Tiio
article below, which we clip froi i
the Daily Review, of Clifton Forge,
Va., of Monday, 16th instant, shows
how the Baptist of Clifton Forge re
garded Rev. Mr. Davis and how re
luctantly they gave him up. The r.?
. view says:
At the close of the morning serv
ices at the Baptist church yesterdar
a business session was held with Mi*
J. C. Carpenter presiding. Afte 1
receiving two new members into the
church by letter, the clerk of th?
church read a letter from the pastor,
Rev. George Davis, (tendering hi*
resignation as pastor of the churcX
the same to take effect the last Su
day in this month. The resiga...
tion came in the nature of a sur
prise to. quite a. number present,
though to others it has been known
"that the pastor would sooner or lat?r
never his connection with the churih
in order to move\to a climate whefe
the health of his family would ?e
nenefitted. With the resignation be
fore the church some action was nec
essary, and on motion of Mr. E. A.
Snead it was decided to appoint a
committee ot three members to wait
on the pastor and ask him to recon
sider. The chair appointed Mess-a.
Snead, F. W. King and Geo. ?.
Greene to serve on the committee
and report back to a meeting to be
held last night, after which the meet ?
In the afternoon the commit'<;e
waited on Mr. Davis and was infor m
ed by him that his resignation was
final, that he had offered it after
mature consideration, and was of
the opinion that in justice to his
family It would be proper for htm"
to accept the call tendered him to
(become the pastor of the Baptist
church at Orangeburg, S. C.
Last night the committee made
its report to the church and there
being no other alternative, the res
ignation was reluctantly accepted.
In doing this, however, the cht.rch
adopted a" series of resolutions highh
eulogistic of the faithful work rend
ered by Mr. Davis since becoming
pastor of the c?urch June 1, 1905.
The resignation having- been ac
cepted in was deemed necessary to
name a committee to supply the pul
pit as well as to recommend a pastor
to the church, and for the puropse
Mr. E. C. Smith nominated the fol
lowing committee: Messrs. W. F.
Powell, F. W. King, Thomas F.
Cowhert, L. F. Alley and Geo. O
Greene. The committee was elected
as named by Mr. Sm^h, after which
the meeting adjourned.
Mr. Davis is a native of Baltimore
and accepted the call to the Bap
tist church in this city while serv
ing as pastor of the Greenbrier Bap
tist church at Alderson. When h^
' entered upon his duties here the
church was without a parsonage, now
it is the owner of the handsomest
parsonage of any church in the State
and in the place of the small organ
he found here three years ago there
is a handsome pipe organ that w is
installed at a cost of $3,000. Tu

to mission work and in every de
partment there has been an onward
march under the leadership of the
In connection with his work her-3
Mr. Davis has also been the pas'or
of the Low Moor Baptist church,
afaithful band of Christian worker.;,
and yesterday afternoon his resigna
tion was acted upon by the church,
being as reluctantly accepted there
as by the church in this city.
Below are the preamble and reso
lutions drawn by the committee and
adopted by the church:
Whereas, under the disposition of
Providence, our beloved and esteem
ed pastor, Rev. Geo. E. Davis, has
been called to another field of labor
in another State,
And Whereas, during his pastorate
of this church he has endeared him
self to the entire membership, and
has proved himself to be in the fore
front of the rank of progressive
pastors with whom this church has
been blessed, and under whose lead
ership and administration the church
has progressed as it had never done
in a like period before in its his
And Whereas, under his leader
ship this church has taken the for;
most position in the Augusta Asso
ciation in the point of material de
velopment, increase in church memb
ership, spiritual awakening and con
tributions to charities and missions,
And Whereas, he is reieased by
this church from his duties here
with the greatest reluctance, and
would not be released at all but for |
the fact that an overruling Provi
dence impresses upon the member
ship of the church the necessity that
he should make a change in the
interest of the health of those near
est and dearest to him;
Therefore. Be It Resolved, oy the
Clifton Forge Baptist church that in
yielding to the wishes of the pastor
and reluctantly accepting his res
ignation, the church feels that ir is
sustaining a loss in its leadership
from which it will not soon, if ever
recover, and that the place made
vacant by his resignation will be in
deed difficult to fill by another.
And Be It Further Resolved, That
in leaving this church its pastor goes
with the deepest affection on the
part of the membership as a wholo,
and with the best wishes of his con
gregation for his happiness and suc
cess in the new field of work, and
with the prayers of his entire flock
WILL BE VOTED DOWN.
Both Sides Hard at Work for Edisto
A dispatch from Lexington to The
State says "news received from the
proposed new county territory fight
is being waged by those favoring
the proposition and those on the
opposite side. In some sections of
the old county there are those who
are very anxious to make the change,
[while in other sections they are just
as bitterly oppjosed to (the mov3.
It is generally conceded, however,
that the majority are in favor of re
maining in Lexington.
The reports from the Aiken side
state that the old county will most
assuredly win in the territory pro
posed to be cut from that county.
Nothing1 definite has been learned
from the Orangeburg side, but it is
known that the new county advo
cates fear the result in Orangehurg.
The election is to be held on De
As we stated last Friday, there Is
no doubt about the result in Orange
burg county, unless those who ougut
to know, are completely off. The
general impression is that the new
county proposjtion will be voted
down almost unanimously in Or
angeburg county. That i? what we
have heard through parties who live
in the territory. It is a question
that the people affected must settle
to suit themselves.

A Debt of Honor* That Should Be
Paid at Once.
We publish the card below frorn
Mr. Chisolnm with pleasure:

At a well attended meeting
about a year ago a note was giv
en by our then President, Mr.
Wannamaker, for the assessment
made by the State Association
against this fljounty for $1,000. .
I have lately learned that there is
still .$225 uncoHected and being
carried by Mr. Wannamaker, and
as it seems impossible to get a
meeting of the Association now,
I am taking this means of present
ing this fact before each member,
with the earnest request that he
take up the matter individually,
as a debt of honor, and do what
he can to relieve Mr. Wannamak
er of this burden.
Gentlemen, please take this
matter up at once and send any
amount you can afford to Mr.
G. L. Salley, our secretary, at Or

This is a debt of honor, as Mr.
Chlsolm says, and sWbuld be paid
at once. It was contracted with the
full consent and approval of (the
County Southern Cotton Association,
and every member of the organization
should help pay this debt. Mr.
Wannamaker worked hard and made
great personal sacrifices for the
farmers of this county specially, an 1
they should not let him suffer this
financial loss. A small contribu
tion from each man would wipe out
the debt. So let each one do his
Bay Mare Stolen.
Mr. S. D. Guyton, of Monck's Cor
ner, was in the city Tuesday on the
lookout for a fine mare, which he
fears has been stolen. He says on
Wednesday, November 18, a young
white man, who claimed to be an
agent of the Atlantic Coast Lumber
Company, of Georgetown, S. C, hired
a horse, saddle and bridle from him
to ride over some timber land, and
up to Tuesday Mr. Guyton had heard
nothing from the young man or the
horse. He made enquiry of the
Atlantic Coast Lumber Company, and
was informed that the company had.
not sent out any such person. Mr.
Guyton will pay a reward for the
return of the mare to him at Monck's
Corner, S. C.
Death of Dr. H. E. Reeves.
This entire, city was shocked on
Wednesday morning when it became
known that Dr. Hazard E. Reeves
had died after a very short illness.
In fact, very few people knew that
he was sick when the announcement
was made that he was dead. He
was taken sick on Tuesday morning
and died Wednesday about noon.
The ccuse of his death was heart
failure. Dr. Reeves, who was on y
thirty-one years of age, was an ex
cellent young man, and his death
will cast a deep shadow over a large
circle of relatives and friends. He
is survived by his wife and two
little children, who have the sympa

Mr. P. W. Hutto. who lives two
miles east of Norway, in a note to
The Times and Democrat dated Nov.

about two o'clock. I do not know
how it happened, but I think some
one must have set it on fire. I got

the fire, aud so it swept me clean.

is a hard blow these hard times on
Mr. Hutto, and his son, and we hope
tney were amply covered by insur

in his labors and pursuit of health
for his beloved family;

AT NEW ORLEANS A GREAT
Editor Parrott Thinks the Farmers
Are Sure of AVinning and the
Big Warehouse a Certainty.
Mr. S. Frank Parrott, editor of!
The Farmers' Union Sun, who at
tended the Farmers' union conven
tion in New Orleans, is very hope
ful of the good to come from that
In speaking of the meeting, he
"There were about 1,500 dele
gates, representing every cotton
growing State. Georgia sent a spec
ial train from Atlanta, on Tuesday
morning of last week. This was
the first train composed exclusively
of Farmers' union, men to ever De
run that distance. The utmost har
mony prevailed throughout the con
vention and great good will come of
"One of the principal things ac
complished was the getting together
of the farmers and the business men
of New Orleans. A committee mad-3
up of Farmers' Union men and mem
bers of the Progressive Union of
New Orleans, an organization whose
business it is to boost the Crescent
City, now has the whole matter of
working out a system for handling
the cotton crop in their hands. To
start with 1,000,000 bales of cot
ton have been pledged this commit
tee to be disposed of only as the
committee sees fit. It is also pro
posed to establish a /central ware
house at New Orleans with a capital
of $5,000,000 whose receipt will be
negotiable in any money market,
either 'domjr.sbic or foreign. This
does not mean that all the cotton
will have to actually be stored in
New Orleans, but the central ware
house will be located at that placo
and will cover about 30 acres. ?
j "This seems to be a great under
taking for the farmers and the bus
iness men of New Orleans, but the
powers that be are with us. The
governor of Louisiana is so much :n
earnest about the proposition that
he said that if it were necessary
to carry out the project, he would
call a special session of his legisla
ture for the purpose of building th?
warehouse at the expense of the
"The time of the convention was
not taken up with 'wind-jamming'
as is usually the case, but there was
a determination on the part of ail
to get down to business. There has
not been a baie of cotton of this,
present crop sold at a profit. All
realize that matters can not go that
way long. Unless the farmer makes
some profit the country is facing
ruin. All realized that empty reso
lutions, with no power to carry out
those resolutions would amount to
nothing. The thing to do was to
get at some plan for the future.
"Tlie committee having this mat
ter In charge is a peculiarly strong
one. It would be hard to get a more
efficient or more far-seeing set of
men together. The matter is safe
in their hands."
Mr. Parrott would not talk of the
other transactions of the body. He
stated that, as, the union was a secret
organization, he did not feel at lib
erty to talk except of those things
which the public was entitled to.
When asked what he thought of
the price of cotton. Mr. Parrott
said: "The price is bound to go
up. The speculators and consumers
have got a large part of the crop, and
the mills now want the price to go
up. They have bought cotton at a
low price to spin. If they can now
make it go up they can dispose of
their goods at the advance price.
Besides many, of the mills have goods
on hand now that were spun out of
12-cent cotton. Everything points
to an advance in the market, and
the man who holds on to what he
has is the only man who will make
a profit out of his this year's crop.'*
Address to Union.

"Our great New Orleans meeting
has been a wonderful success. More
than 1,500 delegates assembled with
the business men of New Orleans
and representatives of the business
interests throughout the South, and
not a single discord occurred during
the entire session.
"That the business men of the
South are aroused and arc with us
in this effort to maintain better
prices for cotton is shown by the
rinjrlns appeal made to every farmer,
business man, merchant and banker
of the country to rally to our suit
port and hold cotton, also to extend
the payment of notes, as will be seen
by tli? enclosed address.
"A committee of seven was ap
pointed by the convention, composed
of members of the Farmers' Union,
to confer with a like committee of
the business men of New Orleans,
and this conference has been held.
We are glad to say that they promise
their utmost co-operation and sup
