Accordingly the board decidei
against removal, and the commit

they will believe us when we assur
them'that we have endeavored to dea
with their respective proposition
with the most scrupulous fairness
and that we have reached our conclu

point of view, and under a constan
sense of claims that each of thes

"4th. Resolved, That our fina
concht:sion by which it was decided t<
retain the college at Clinton wa
reached under a rule of principle tha
we laid down for ourselves and pub
lished to the world in our action in
June last; at that time we said:
D " 'Now, the board desires it to be
distinctly understood that while they
have felt that they ought to give a
courteous consideration Yo the propo
sition that has come to them from
- Yorkville, their clear judgment is
t they would not be justified from any
s point of view in accepting any propo
sition for a change of location that
t did not offer *he cleares: and most
e manifest advantages to the college

ed to their care.' (See The State,
I June 7th, '05, p. 2.)
"The propositions submitted -co us
by the several communities, Clinton
included, now being before the pub
t lic, the latter can judge for them
selves how far the board has adhered
to the principle thtus announced.
"The proposition of Bennettsville,
constiuting as it did a case to itself,
the board still 'has under advisement."
The people of Clinton have been
more deeply interested in this project
than the people of any other town
making a bid and there was a general
jubilation at Clinton Thursday night.
