Meeting Lutheran Synod Notable for
the Amount of Business Dis
News and Courier, 15th.
The eighty-sixth annual convention
of the Lutheran synod of South Caro
lima has come to an end. The con
vention was a most successful one
from every viewpoint, and much good
work was done. Saturday was the
busiest and perhaps the most import
ant day of the convention. A num
ber of special speeches were made
and many routine matters were at
tended to. These were of a sort to
interest Lutherans all over South
Carolina, and since the formal min
utes of the convention will not be
ready, in all probability, for two
months or moore, a more detailed ac
count than has hitherto been publish
ed of Saturday's proceedings will not
be a miss. The following report of
the proceedings of this most import
ant session has been prepared by the
Rev. S. C. Ballentine, of Leesville,
who represented the News and Cour
ier at the convention of the synod:
The 86th annual convention of the
Evangelical Lutheran synod of South
Carolina has drawn to a close. Satur
day was'a busy day. Several special
speeches were made, and much rou
tine work. After devotions conducted
by the Rev. Y. von A. Riser, three spe
cial addresses were made. The first
was made by Prof. C. A. C-abtree, su
perintendent of the Orpi_..'.s home, at
Salem, Va. This home now has 88
children, with four more to admit in
a few weeks. Six of these are from
South Carolina, with a likelihood for
two addition children from this State
soon. The last year was the best from
every standpoint in its history. We
must soon have additional buildings.
The boys are taught plumbing, print
Ing and farming, and the girls learn
to be trained nurses, stenographers,
and to do general housework. This
Is in addition to their mental and spir
The Rev. A. J. Stirewalt, missionary
to Japan, but now at home on fur
lough, next addressed the body. Mr.
Stirewalt Is here to raise additional
funds for the equipment of our
school in Kumumoto. The construc
tion of one building is already under
* way to be opened next April. For
. this purpose $25,000 has already been
provided -but It Is found that $25,000
more is needed. Theological Instruc
tion has been given to five native help
ers by these missionaries, but this
school 'vill mean great things. At
least 300 students, or as ma.ny as is
wanted can be obtained if a school
receiving government recognition is
established. This scho'ol is a certain
ty, by which many students will come
undw~ Christian influence, and many
native students will be led to study
The Rev. E. C. Cronk, secretary of
the Laymen's Missionary Movement,
next officially presented that work to
e' ynod. The body received this report
gladly. A suitable resolution was
adopted, heartily endorsing this work,
and promising hearty cooperation on
the part of this body.
The Rev. M. 0. J. Kreps, financial
* agent, for the Theological seminary,
presented that important work. Since
his canvass for funds to erect suitable
buildings In Columbia for such pur
pose, the additonal sum of $9,000, in
amounts ranging from $1 to $1,000
was pledged. Work on the new build
2ng will be begun'In .ten days.
The Rev. W. P. Cline presented an
overture coming from the Woman's
Missionary convention, recently held
In Columbia, relative to establishing
study In the Sunday school. A pro
per committee was appointed to at
tend to this work.
The committee on president's re
gort made a report through the Rev.
S. P. Koon. Under this, the follow
Ing is of general interest: A lady In
