THE Y. M. C. A.
Interstate Convention of Two Caro.

Progress in a Great Work.
Editor of The Herald and News
-As a delegate from the associatioi
from Newberry, it was my privilege
as well as my great pleasure, to at

regret that I could not have arrangei
to be present at every session of thi
convention, because I enjoyed ever3
hour I spent the.re. Anderson showe%
in every way that she 'appreciatei
the honor of entertaining this greal
gathering of representative Chris

the welfare of the boys and young

beautiful coloring, "Glad you came.'
Thre were a number of very inter
esting conferences and talks on dif
ferent phases of the work. Some
times as many as four or five differ

same time. While all were good

Every man who has a son and wh<
lives in South Carolina should appre

The work is growing rapidly in tha
Carolinas. North Carolina is leadini
us and we will have to do hard worn
to catch up..
Thirty-one years ago, in 1879, Mr
R. Y. Leavell and, I think, Mr. J. E
Chapman, and myself represented
the Newberry association in the statt
convention at Anderson. We had
fine gathering of young men, espec
ially from the colleges of the State
but at that convention we were no:
able to employ a State secretary fo:
all of his time. The best we coul<
do was to arrange with the Charles
ton City association to get them t<
allow Mr. E. W. Watkins, who wa:
their secretary, to give about tw<
months of his time to the State work~
and we had less than five hundret
dollars for the use of the State con
At the meeting of the Interstati
Executive committee held last Sat
urday afternoon, the report of tha
- linas showed that we had spent ten
3 thousand Uollars during the past
year, that we had a general secretary,
A Mr. G. C. Huntington, employed all
e of his time to look after the work in
. the Carolinas, and to assist him he
e had Mr. Smith, the financial seere
tary, Mr. Johnson, who gave all of
his time to the students and Mr.
- Klutz, who remained in the office at
ElCharlotte, N. C., to look after the
correspondence and to forward to
each of these secretaries the corres
pondence relating to their respective
- branches of the work; and arrange
ments were about completed to em
- ploy a boys' secretary to devote all
of his time to the boys' work.
The International committee was

Mr. H. 0. Williams, who is pleasant

So you will see the wonderful
progress that has 'been made, and it
is yet in its infancy in the South.
This gives our friends in Newberry
some idea of what a grand organi
t zation we hope to form a part of, as
soon as we can secure the court
house property, and fix it up proper
ly for the work here. We already
hare a strong organization among
the students of Newberry college,
and when we get our county organi
zation, they will' cooperate with us
in pressing forward this great cause
which has done so much for the boys
and young men of America, and will
do so much for our boys.
A friend of the Yun- Men's
Christian association who heard me
speak of the convention at Anderson
said, after expressing his pleasure in
hearing such a favorable report from
the convention, that he had a thous
and dollar contribution for our
L building here as soon as we were
ready to begin the canvas to raise
fifteen or twenty thousand dollars
to improve the property. Nineteen
thousand dollars more will make the
improvements needed to give us one
- of the best ,buildings in a city of
this size in the South.
Who will give this the next thous
and dollars? We want every man,
woman and boy to 'have a part in it.

McMaster Had Urged Fire Escapes
For Negro College.
It is likely that the lives of the
three negroes who were burned to
death in the fire which destroyed
Harbinson college at Abbeville las:
week would have been saved and the
five other negro students seriously
hijured would have escaped unharm
ed, had President Young followe
the suggestions of Insurance C:in
missioner McMaster, given him in
letter three months ago, warning
him of a probable result of a fire ;f
Mr. M1cMaster's letter was pcompt
ed by a report of Deputy Commis
sioner Wharton, who was maimng ao
inspection of all the ,olleges and
hotels at the time.
Mr. MeMaster in his let;er to
President Young said: "Foliowing
an inspection of your three-story
brick dormitory building by the dep
uty of this department, I am led to
recommend that you install fire es
capes from your third story roomus
and that you have placed in your
hallways several chamical -fire ex
tinguishars, -put in such prominent
position as to be readily founa in
.ease of fire. I would recommend also
that you have the fire drills of the oc
cupants of these buildings, at least
once a month. My deputy was im
pressed with the fact that the stn
do;ts in this building would be in
great danger in ease :f fire. There
foie, I would urge upon you to con
s,(Ier the installation of proper means
of fire escapes from your upper sto
"If you are unable to equip the
building with iron ladders for fire
eseapes then certainly a number of
rope escapes such as rope ladders
should be placed in a number of the
rooms in the upper stories and the
students instructed how to use them.
"I trust that you will give this
matter your earnest consideration,
for it will be a great calamity and
responsibility on both of us in ease
of a fire and loss of life."
The .caution Mr. McMaster dis
played with regard to the Abbeville
situation was prompted by the 'dis
Iastrous fire that had just occurred at
th*e Orangeburg negro college. -He
had never received a reply to his
letter to the -principal of Haa1binson.

carrying out tany of his suggestions
