This is an age of progress and en
terprise such as the world has never be
fore witnessed if we be not incorrectly
informed through the annals of his
.'~tory. But has it occurred to you
that mixed up with all this enter
prise is to be found an ingenuity in
the way of adulterating most every
thing used in a way that is difficult
of detection ? A great deal of the
food materials is adulterated. There
is a clay or chalk-terra alba as it is
known, found in abundance near
Graniteville, S. C., and from that
mine car loads of material are shipped
to various large cities of the nnion.
A few of the purposes for which it
is used is to make candy, baking
powders, and it is said it is even put
into flour. It is also used to impart
a bright color to syrup, and can be
readily detected in such by dissolv
ing some of the syrup in water and
allowing it to stand a short time, the
chalk will be precipitated and will
form a crust at the bottom and the
sides of the containing vessel.
Cotton is made to imitate the finer
materials or when used with a small
percentage of silk or wool almost
defies detection. The oil from its
seed enters largely into the commer
cial lard and other oils. The leather
from which parts of our shoes are
made is manufactured from paper
or leather pulp made from scraps
and parings. Other items could ibe
.mentioned, but then these are suffi
cient to show that adulterations
form a great part of everything con
sumed. The only true way by which
the consumer can have an absolute
pure article is to produce as far as
possible what -he needs and thus
force out of the market these manu
factured stuffs. The low price of cot
ton if the farmers will heed its teach
ings will be a benefit by causing him
to produce his own liv'ng and then
he can dispose of all surplus to his
townsmen, and thus the market can
be purged of such miserable stuff as
is often sold under the guise of the

[Here is the article to which reference is
nade and which explains itself.-EDrron.) pr(
Under this caption the editor of the C
Southern Christian Advocate, in the issue p
f July 19, attacks a statement which. he In'
iays, "recently appeared in one of our
=unty exchanges." As I am the author of pa
:he statement, and as the statement was Dr
made advisedly, I take it I will be permit- the
ted to give the reasons which justify the ial
statement. Since accuracy of statement is cu:
the gage of discussion laid down by the we
editor, it may as well be recalled that the the
statemeat which he says "recently ap- the
peared," appeared in one of his county ex- aft
:hanges something like six months ago. sei
Why the editor of the church organ, who is po
asually quick to resent anything that can Po
be construed into an attack on the Church,
should have allowed so grave a misstate- ces
ment, as he evidently thinks this is, to go fa
anchallenged so long; and why, having a
taken up the cudgels so tardily, he should ter
have wrested this one paragraph from its ter
ontext in the body of a discussion which th<
ae had arbitrarily shut out of the Advocate, da
tre questions that will arise in every st)
houghtful mind. no
Here is the-full paragraph which the ed
tor garbled and then criticized: hi.
-Finally he insinuates that Iam arraying po
he laymen against the clergy. On the Bi
ontrary I am standing for truth and the me
right of the laymen in the church. Sixty- to
aine thousand lay Methodists in South thf
arolina paid $177,357.56 to the support of era
te ministry and the institutions of the Bi
,hurch, and yet they are allowed only 40 mi
lay delegates on the floor of the annual ny
Conference which disburses this large sum; na
while 350 local and traveling preachers are wi
represented by 200 delegates. Even this I n
small representation was grudgingly grant- un
ed only after a stubborn fight, As it is, th<
such representation as is given lay mem- po
bers is almost entirely under the control of wI
the preachers in the last analysis. If there pr
were no conflict between preachers and 61t
laymen until I came into this discussion, ref
why have the clergy fought every effort to W
give lay members proportional representa- di
tion in the councils of the Church? Does reo
anyone suppose for a moment that the Ad- ed
vocate could have been used to outrage and m<
buse laymen. and they denied the right to all
efend themselves, it the lay membership th(
had had representation in Conference pro- Is
portionate to their number and their dona- to
The issues raised by the editor fall un
er two heads-first the logical relations of
lay representation in our church polity;
econd, the historical evolution of lay rep- of
resentation in our ecclesiastical system. to
These are topics cover the whole ground of la'
Lontroversy. - th
In the first place, then, what is the log- ou
ical relation of lay representation to the en
Dthe. features of our system? The specific Ar
point at issue, raised by the editor, is upon ex
my statement that "69,000 lay Methodists rot
in South Carolina paid $177,357.56 to the no
support of the ministry and the institutions th
of the church, and yet they are allowed on- wl
ly 40 lay delegates upon the floor of the ari
annual Conference which disburses this ed
large sum, while 350 local and traveling cia
preachers are represented by 200 delegates." ho
This proposition he disposes of thus: "Ev
eryMethodist in SouthCarolina with even or- kn
linary irtelligence knows that the amounts in1
paid for the support of our preachers is es- Co
:imated by laymen, collected by laymen, tic
mid disbursed by laymen, and that the tic
annual Conference does not handle or dis- ful
>urse a single cent of it." In a rji.d-Tiferal coa
ense, possibly it would no proper to the
:y that the Annual C~rnee handles or in
lisburses any fu4'ut will the editor re- tat
'ort to suchp.pable sophistry, in face of fer
he-faetthai t appoints its agents to attend Al1
c these matters of detail? In face of the up
act that the fund for superannuated sbi
rreachers, bishops' fund, educational fund, ex
Lnd many others, are unquestionably dis- fez
aursed by the agents or the Conference thi
nther at Conference or during the year, the
Lud the results passed in review at Con- ee
erence ? To hold that the Annual Con- co:
~erence does not handle or disburse any go
uds, because, forsooth, the funds are
iandled and disbursed by its agents, thi
would be puerile playing with words. And in
his is just as true of the funds collected su
mnd paid out for traveling preachers as it is t
a the case of superannuated preachers or -bn
ishops or any other fund. While the cot
'amounts paid for the support of our th(
~reachers is estimated by laymen," as the m
~ditor says, they are usually estimated in
he presence of the preacher and under his th(
irgent appeals, too often regardless of is:
lood or drought or the poverty of the peo- aE
le. While it is "collected by laymen arnd tri
lisbursed by laymen," truly enough, it is i
stimated, collected and disbursed by lay- thi
nen who are practically the appointees of O
he preacher, the agent of the Conference. ci
L'rue, they are elected by the Quarterly Hjj
Jonference; but they can be elected only ge
ipon nomination by the preacher, by a la.
iody, the majority of whom were elected n
ipon the nomination of the preacher in wh
~revious years. What is to hinder the as
preacher from nominating only those
aymen who think to suit him? Is it not
-easonably sure that he will nominate such,
f they can be had ?
Take a concrete case. The last Quarterly
Jonference for the year in a given charge se
s in session, a working majority of whom.
were elected upon nomination of the ~
preacher in past years. Salarie4 on the ze
:arge have been steadily pushed upward, la1
while the ability of the membership has as th
steadily tended downward. Bro. A and.
Bro. B, sitting stewards, resisted an ad- li
ance in assessment last year because of th
special disaster from flood and drought and fijt
storm-and they are not nominated for re
election, although they are true and faith- ge
ul, and represented the feeling of the w
membership. They are not nominated by flt
te preacher-not that they fail to repre- en
ent truly their people, but because their tic
riews do not suit the preacher-and hence
;hey cannot be re-elected. To this extent so
'such representation as is given lay mem- pr
bers is almost entirely under control of.the foj
preachers in the last analysis." This is the e
2nly natural construction to be placed th
pon my language, and hence the effort to
prejud ice lay representatives of patt years th
igainst me by construing my statement to by
mean an impeachment of their int grity, ra
savors strongly of playing to the footlights,.b
2. As to the historical evolution of lay
rpresentation in our ecclesiastical system. al
rhe editor says with great emphasis here ru
also that "the veriest tyro in Methodist his- pe
ory also knows that lay representation in t
yr General and Annual Conference was.
granted by the General Conference of 1866, gi
omposed exclusively of preachers, and by wvl
a two-thirds vote. It is simply a falsifiea- im
ion of history to say that even this small a
representation was granted grudgingly on
ly after a stubborn fight." re.
Let us see whether the editor has all the TI
istory with him or not. Any one who in
bas read in even a cursory way that old,
tandard of Methodist literature, the Meth
dist Magazine and the journals of the ar
uccessive General Conferences, must ree- fet
ognize the justice of Dr. Abel Stevens' re- ex
mark in his history of smerican Meth-ef
dism (page 520), when he says this ques
tion of Lay Representation "has seldom ar
ceased to agitate more or less American fe!
Methodism from the first decade of its or- co
ganization to our day." Are these "simply tht
a falsification of history ?'
To be specific-the Methodist Maga- CO
rinc of 18'24 contains (page 274) the full re- ge
port of the committee appointed in re- ra
spouse to numerous memorials that had
beset this and the preceding General Con- il
ference; on the subject of Lay Representa- fi
ion. There is somewhat of asperity in pa
the report denying the request. The me- tic
morialists made repeated efforts, and being ce
repeatedly refused, withdrew in 1830, and,
according to McClintock and Strong and te:
other Cyciopedias, organized the Methodist tai:
Protestant Church with some 5,000 mem- pa
bers, introducing Lay Representation and
discarding the offce of Bishop. Are these
all falsifiers of history, too ?
The slavery question then absorbed the ar
whole attention of the church, resulting a si
decade or more later in a Northern and a a
Scarcely had this issue been settled by of
presentation resumed its sway in the c
neral Conference; and the journal of the
neral Conference of 1854 (page 365) re
ds a resolution on the subject, which,
ether with several memorials, were re- t
red to a committee. This committee a
posed of the petitions in quite a sum- f
ry manner -denying the request and t
Lracterizing as revolutionary even the at
ipt to effect such a change. Is this also 8
mply a falsification of history ?"
:n the General Conference of 1S58 the c
stion was again under consideration
I again the Conference refused to make
r change. (See journal 1858. page 582).
Chen came the war and devastation a-id :
)stration. After this hiatus, the General a
aference of 1866 asse-ubled. Dr. A. L.
Green had sent out a circular advocat
Lay Representation, and it was warm- C
diseussed in the Annual Conferences- t
;sing most by very narrow majorities. t
Green champios:ed the resolution on
floor of the General Conterence. Spec

sion of the subject, and the discussions; C

.t General Conference that the measure,
r forty years of agitation and cue
ism, still met with strong and able op- E
ition; and in the final passage was op. N
ed by a strong vote f irreconcilab:es.

J. Wx. STORES.
rangeburg, July 24th.
'ote:-It is worth notice that the editor
the Advocate in his anxiety t
break the force of discrimination against
men in the matter of representation on
i floor of the Annual Conference pointed
t by me, holds that the General Confer
.e is the only law-making body; that the t
nual Conference was almost entirely an
cutive boly, dealing with matters of
tine-and hence (he argued) there was
need of larger lay representation. In
s also he followed Bishop McTyire. Yet t
en Brother Herbert made precisely this t
ament a few weeks ago, in reply to the
tor's crusade against the Holiness Asso
tion, the editor holds up bands in holy
rror at such heresy.
Lhe merest tyro in Methodist polity s
ows that a large number of matters that
imately concern laymen, the Annual
ference has absolute power. The elec
of editors for church papers, appor
ning the Bishops' funds, Conferencei
ds, etc., are all matters that intimately [
cern the lay membership who have
se funds~o pay; and yet 74,000 of them
this State are allowed only 40 represen- a
ves upon the floor of the -Annual Con- a
ence, which deals with these matters. t
ough salaries have been steadily pushed ~
ward, while the ability of the ,member
p to pay has steadily tended downward, ~
>enses of delegates to the General Con- t
ence have in recent years been levied E
ough the Annpual Conferences upon ,
p membership; and a host of agents for
leges and other enterprises have been
nmissioned by Annual Conferences to
out over the country at large cost to the[
mbership. Yet these gentlemen tell us
.t there is no need of lay representation
the Annual Comference. Does anyone
>pose that these additional burdens
dd have been laid upon an already over
rdened people, if laymen had been ac
ded representation in the councils of
church in proportion to numbers and
o far from the General Conference being
only law making body in our church,
t not perfectly plain that in all matters
ecting the fundamental law-the R~es
~tive Rules-the final decision is reached
the Annual Conferences, precisely where
undue clerical preponderance exists?
e cannot read a dozen pages in the Dis.
line without running against the fact.
w then can anyone contend that the
neral Conference is the only place where
representation is necessary, if it be
:cessay at all? And if allowable at all,
y should the clergy be allosved 350 times
much representation as laymen ?
Our School System.
How can we improve our common
ools? This is a questton of vital
portance to every individual citi
of our country. The public at
ge recognizes and feels that some
ng is wrong in regard to our pub
school system. But just what
it something is, is difficult to de
e, as so many things operate to
ther to make it defective. The
iter or this article having had a
mber of years of practical experi
e in the school room is in a posi
,n which enables him to specify
me of these reasons. The fund
vided by the State is inadequate
the purposes for which it is in
ided, as the amount is so small
it it is sufficient only for two or
:ee months. It is greatly desired
the masses, that if money is to be
sed by taxation, that some means
used by which a much larger
iount can be raised and the schools
u for a longer term. Many are de
udent altogether on this mere pit
'ce received through this source to
re their children any education
atever. Other s, not realizing the1
plortnce or value of an education
inclined to rest contentedly and
y upon what little the public does.
ere is so little inducemenat offered Ii
the average country school in the
*y of remuneration that very few
contented to remain in the pro- I
sion long enough to acquire the 'y
perience and skill by which to do f
etive work. The consequences
that very few men enter the pro- a
sion and those who do, use it as a
avenience while they are fitting t
imselves for other professions. Of t
urse there are exceptions to this
neral rule. The work therefore in r
>st country schools is done by an i
~xperienced set of teachers who s
d it a difficult matter frequently to
ss the county teachers' examina-C
in. Evervone wvill admit the ne
ssity of better schools antd better
tchers, but how are thiey to be ob- -
ned ? One way is to provide more
y and better pay for your teachers.
ke the position of some induce- ~
int and see that the teachers who ~
selected are those whose profes- I
n is teaching. Let the small I
ount received from the public be '
secondary importance. Be gener
and ,.un your scoolsi nine months ,
uring the year. A teacher with
rains and energy cannot afford to
.eep himself in a position to take
liese short term schools in consider
tion of the small aniount received
rom the public with eithei no addi
ional pay or so little as not to
mount to much. A great many
eople pay their teachers very be
rudgingly jusL as though the teach
r were a parasite on the comnmunity
nd they were compelled to contiib
te that amount for his support. O
11 professions, teaching from a finan
ial point of view offers the least in -
ucement for laborers of any other
hat can be mentioned. Even the
est paid teachers are able to save so
,ttle of their earnings till it amounts
a but little. It surely caunot be
barged that teachers as a class are
ad financiers, because many having
Aught for years accumulated nothing
ntil they abandoned teaching and
mbarked' in other callings. Tle
erv nature of circumstances are such
hat it is almost impossible to lay by
nything of any consequence. An
ther good reason why teachers
hould be paid well is the fact that a
aan's education is his capital and a
are living is not as much as is ex
ected for the outlay. Another is
hat one who devotes his time and
nergies to the profession is in a few
'ears rendered almost useless for fur
ber work and consequerty is -rele
ated to the rear as being behiud
he times-too much of an old fogy
nd such like for the demands of the
imes. Teaching enriches the mind
vith knowledge and experience, but
xhausts it of its vitalities, and- will if
Iursued long enongh render the in
ividnal a nervous wreck of humani
y, incapacitated for any mental labor.
these are facts and it does seem that
ur people at large would become
>atriotic enough to iolly to the sup
>ort of their teachers wbo do do ef
ective work and lend them a helping
and. Again, a teacher should re
eive better pay than he does, be.
ause his position is a very trying
me, as it makes him a target for the
ommunity at whom they cast their
lenunciations and criticisms when
ver there is the least unpleasantness.
f there is any one benefactor of the
uman race that needs the support
i the community, that person is
our teacher, who if he is couscien
ious labors faithfully for the true ad
ancement mentally and morally of
hose most dear to you. A great
nany are disosed to think that a
eacher has a good time-makes
oney easy while you have -to labor
o hard for it. Is that true? I
vould answer in the negative. The
eacher is studying and planning and
hinking on all matters pertaining to
is work even when not in school
nd perhaps day after day leaves the
chool room with throbbing brain
ubject to the unjust criticisms of his
matrons and the community simply
>ecause they are not in a position to

s schools are a niecessity, so are
eachers; therefore instead of seeing
ow little you can pay your teachers,
ee how much you can paiy them and
bus make it an inducement to teach
i-s of intelligence and skill, and
riadually the standard of educational
ork will be raised and the country
