THE PRESBYTERIAN SYNOD.
Of South Carolina Will Convene in
of its History.
The Presbyterian Synod of South
Caroina will convene in annual ses
sion in Newberry with Aveleigh Pres
byterian church this evening.
The Rev. J. E. James is the present
pastor of Aveleigh, having come to
Newberry about three years ago from
Anderson. Mr. James is a young
man, a good pastor and an excellent
preacher and is much beloved by the
members of his congregation and by
the citizenship of Newberry generally.
He will make a charming host for the
synod, and, with the cooperation of
his members and of the citizenship
generally, it is the purpose to make
this convention of the synod the most
delightful that has ever been held. Mr.
James is a native of Alabama and an
A. M. graduate of Princeton, and also
a graduate of the theological school
connected with Princeton.
Aveleigh congregation is one of the
oldest in the synod and has a fine
history behind it.
Dr. W. E. Pelham, who has been _,
member of the congregation for the
past thirty-six years, and who, for
the past seven or eight years, has
been the stated clerk of-the session,
and who has been a ruling elder for
twelve years and was superintendent
of the Sunday school for twenty-three
years and who is, therefore, familiar
not only with the Presbyterian church
in South Carolina, but with the local
congregation, was asked by The Her
ald and News for a statement in re
gard to the approaching session of
the synod, covering a little something
of the history of Aveleigh Presbyte
rian church, as well as a history of the
Presbyterian church of South Caro
lina, and also something of the dis
tinguished visitors who are expected.
Dr. Pelham readily consented to give
this statement, which, no doubt, will
be read with interest by the members
of the Presbyterian church in South
Carolina and by the people generally.
Dr. Pelham stated in response to
the inquiry from The Herald and
"The synod of South Carolina dates
its existence from the year 1788, and
during all these years, has stood val
iantly for the faith once delivered to
the saints, and has exerted a potent
and remarkable influence in all that
has concerned the welfare of the Com
monwealth in respect to an enlighten
ed and lofty citizenship.
"The distinctive principles of the
Presbyterian church have been such
as to a:tract the attention of the world
to her and for none has she stood
more loyally and consistently than to
her insistence upon sepai'ation of
church and State, the auonomy of
each to suffer no interference by the
one or the other. It is admittedly
true that in proportion as this view
obtains among any people, citizenship
of the people becomes greatly more
virile, self-respecting and influential.
Many of the most distinguished men
of the State, in the pulpit, at the bar,
in the sciences, in the high estate of
journalism, in commercial and in all
the various activities of life, have been
more or less prominently indentified
with the Presbyterian church 'of
"And for learning and eloquence
and godly lives, the names of such
worthes as Thornwell, Palmer, Howe,
Woodrow, Girardeau and others stand
ut first among their equals and no
where surpassed throughout the Uin
"The retiring moderator is the Rev.
. W. Sloan, D. D., pastor of the First
Presbyterian church, Greenville, S. C.
The stated clerk is the Rev. Thos. H.
Law, D. D., of Spartanburg, S. C.
"The initial service will be a ser
on to be preached by the moderator.
ne of the essential and significant
principles of the church is the parity
f the eldership, the teaching elder
eing the minister in charge, and the
ruling elder, who bears rule, with
qual 4.uthority in all the courts of
he church appellate from session
hrough Presbytery and Synod to Gen-,
ral Assembly inclusive. Hence the
representation in essence of this court
ill be an equal number of ministers
and ruling elders, though actually dif
erent because ofttimes a minister*
erves several churches.
"The synod of South Carolina has
erolled one hundred and forty min
sters, active and inactive, and the~
membership throughout the State is*
25,000. In connection with the rou
ine work of the synod, there will be
risiting brethren from other synods,
who will address the court, in their
several capacities as secretaries.
Among those expected are: Rev. Win.
. Boggs, D. D., of Atlanta, Ga., sec
retary of schools and colleges; Rev.I
. 0. Reavis, D. D., of Nashville,!
enn., co-ordinate secretary foreign
missions; Rev. H. H. Sweets. D. D.,
f Louisville, Ky., secretary of min
sterial education; Rev. Homer Mc
Iillan, of Atlanta, Ga., assistant see
Snedecor, LL. D., of Tuscaloonsa, Ala.,
secretary colored evangelization.
"Matters of great moment are like
ly to be discussed at a conference to
be held Monday evening, of the trus
tees representing the several educa
tional institutions under the care and
support of the synod.
'Aveleigh church, synod's hostess'
was organized in 1835, and during all
witness to all sublime truths of the
Gospel, as enunciated by the great
Teacher, her members having been
true to the principles maintained by
their fathers and fore-fathers, in their
day and generation. Her ministers
have been men above the ordinary in
intellect, and have impressed their
lives in gracious fulness upon the
community and State.
"Newberry awaits the coming of
the synod and her people of all de
nominations will extend a hearty wel
come to the representatives who shall
compose this body and her hospitality
on this occasion will more than likely
verify her just reputation of the past."
