nteresting to the convention it was
ot marked by acrimonious feeling and
inally the issue was settled to the sat
action of both ;id?s.
In brife, the differ,ee arose over a
esolution from the committee on the
3faction of both sides.
In brief, the difference arose over a
eport o-f the G. F. C., in which this
ommittee recommended the granting
f the request of the trustees of the
. F. C. for permission to prosecute a
ampaign during the next year to raise
fund of $100,000 for that college. An
erson college friends had also come
rith a resolution asking permission to
tart a campaign for funds for that
ollege in the Saluda Baptist associa
ion and elsewhere in th-e State if it
hould be deemed wise by the trustees.
'he resolution was presented by Dr.
loward L. Jones, of Charleston, a
iember of the board of trustees of
nderson college. Dr. Ramsay, the
resident of the G. F. C., stated that
e hated to oppose the proposed reso
ition but he wanted the claims of G.
'. C. to be presented fully and sug
ested that the other be deferred. Up
n vote it was deferred. The vote was
0 to 49.

m.a:hly statement by Dr. Ramsay as!
