The legislature will soon be il

done with the liquor problem?
There is no doubt that it is i=
p6ssible to enforce prohibitio:

The New York Times editc
rially jumps on Governor-eleic
-Blease because of his views o1
the education of the negro. Gov
ernor Blease in his campaign
announced that he is opposed t4
the present allotment of thi
sohool funds but favored th<
giving the money paid by th<
negroes to them and that pai<
by she whites to the white
schools There are many hold
ing the samne views, but the con
stituttion fixes the distribution o:
the school fuds and the gov
ernor, nor can the general as
sembly change it. At any rat<
the people of this State do no
need the advice of the New Yorl
Times in the matter of schoo
fund management. The tw<
races have been getting along
agreeably, doing all they can foi
the educational advancement o.
the children of both races, ani
will continue to do so withou1
the counsel of outsiders. Gov.
erznor Blease has a right to hold
what views he sees tit but whet
it comes to executing the laws
of the State he will be governed
by the constitution. The med
dling of outsiders has never ac
complished any good for the
negro, and he has found tha1
.out long ago, to such an extent
that the intelligent colored mar
does not hesitate to express his
unwillingness to heed those whc
know not the conditions.
RIGHT THIS TIME.
The Columbia State of ye.ster
day has a timely editorial wiia
which we agree most heartily,
because it is just. The State
argues for an acreased salary
for our judiciary, and makes the
point "if $3000d was a fair comn
pensation for arduous work of
the highest and most exacting
responsibility ten or twenty years
igo rt is meagre now." The
iudges of the State -are poorly
paid, and unless the legislature~
dloes something to relieve the~
;ituation the bench is bound to
leteriorate to the injury of the
masses. We have thought for
some time the State was follow
ish disposition towards the judil- n
Iiary. and if the high cost of living 1
continues, none but nwnn of means
can afford to go on tik- bench. s:
I "Tostrenrthen thecircuitbench" a
does not mean to find men with a fi
license to practice aw. it means
inding for the bench men of m
regritv and ability. who are not. t
allied with the great interests and,
who can hold the scales of .J ustice
with an even hand. South Caro
olina is fortunate in the class of
men now occupying the bench:
they art as clean as can be found t
it countrv over. At the same -
time none of theim can much
longer afford. without a sacrifice. t
to hold thc position at the measley:

r is just this sort of thing that
Scauses a loss of confidence in the ~

in the Senate by virtue of the
votes of the people of South

him free rein to do that whichj
his judgment dictates, if hei
thinks he is getting his "share
gf the stealing'' byvoting for a;
tariff on tea and lumber, it isJ
with the consent of those who
sent him to Washington. I
Revise the tariff downward is d
the Democratic slogan, but what e:
is to be done about the Repre- e:
sentatives whose constituents
went to go slow about cutting jt]
down the tariff on such articlesjr
they are especially interested in, p
Louisiana will not stand for a very s
large cut. nor will the lumber in- h
terests want the plane put to shar -
ing their product. If the Dem- ti
ocrats do not go slow they may t
find themselves in the same fix t]
the Republican party is in now. t
and then will rise up another o;
leader who wvill form a new pa rty ti
which will only add to the poli- p
tical confusion of the country

With the acceptance of a pro

ility almost as great as that o.

hue teacher is in earnest, he o1
he can create such indelible im
ressions about alcohol on thE
ttle minds, that those import
nt truths will never be forgot
an. A strange fact about alco
o1 is that it first attacks th<
ighest functions of the brain
bien those subje~ct are easily
onquered. Prof. Kraepelin o:

After all the ways that wind

Llapes, every vocation is foi

ay of indirectly appealing tc
le best nature of a child along
ie line of scientific temperance
has the school teacher of tc
ay: hence the importance o1
athusiastic, God-serving teach
es in our public schools.
Possibly every one realizes
e grave responsibility of a pa.

wonders where the dear child

erdity is not impartial and alco
hol does not stop to ask whether
it is being taken socially or as a
intoxicant: nei'ther does it -stop
to ask whether it is a man's or a
woman's body that it is being
taken into. Social gla-, wine

dinary bad feelings, all leave
their effects upon the human,
body and fall with mighty stroke

A W. C. T. U. in a neighbor
hood is of incalculable assistance
' to scientific temperance instruc
tion in school; the state superin
tendent of this department urges
that every union take up this
-department. Many unions have
already accomplihed good work
along this line. An occasional
lecture on the subject of scien
tific temperance is helpful to
children as well as adults. The
regular course of study in the
children's temperance society
impresses the physical injuries
of alcohol and nicotine. For the
union to have children write
essays on selected subjects.
causes the little ones to think of
- points otherwise never would
cross their minds. Some unions
provide temperance literature in
their neigiborhood schools and
good has been accomplished
along the reading line. Certainly
schools and teachers need the
fervent proyers of their assist
-ig unions. There is a brigbter
prospect for the temperance
cause in the coming generation
thanathere ever has been before.
I do not pretend to say that
strong drink will be altogether
wiped out; for it is likely that it
never will, but love, work and
laxv combined can largely di
minish its use. Murder has been
against the law for ages, still it
has not been wholly kept down,
that is no reason, however, that
sensible men would think of dis
continuing such a law. Recently

A WONDERFUL STORY,
Concerning the New Presbyterian
Told by Rev. A. R. Woodson.
On October 9th. 1904, the --new church" was for the first time
discussed, and on November 13th at a congregational meeting im
mediately after morning service a committee of five was appointed
ed to formulate some plans as to mode of procedure and to report
The committee was as follows:
Rev. J. M. Holladay, D. C. Shaw. W. Scott Harvin,!W. M. 1
'Brockinton and W. C. Davis.
A week later this committee reported to the congregation. as
MANNING. S. C., Nov. 20. 1904.
Your committee, appointed to consider the mode of procedure,
ways and means, etc.. towards the building of a new church, in
case you determine to build the church, and to make suggestions
to this meeting. respectfully -eport:
1. We recommend the building of a brick church costing not
more than eight thousand '.ollars.
2. We recommend the printing of a subscription card reading
MANNING, S. C., Dec. , 1904.
I promise to give, with the Lord's help. S.. towards the
building of a new Presbyterian Church. S. thereof payable
Dec. 15th, 1904, and the balance at S............., (monthly
or quarterly) during the next four years, and present the same at
the usual time and place of public worship.
that twelve blue envelopes, suitably endorsed, be placed in said
packages in which the contributions shall be made.
3. We recommend that an earnest effort be made to make the
cash portion of the subscription on Dec. 15th. 1904, at least $1500.
This money can be placed at compound interest.
4. We recommend the appointment of a committee consisting
of five men and two ladies to select a plan for said church, said
plan to be reported back to the church when finally selected, said
committee to have the architect or contractor drawing the plans
present at said meeting to answer all questions and fully explain
5. The building committee is hereby directed to employ an
architect, not only to furnish plans, but to supervise building.
6. We recommend that when the plan is decided upon the
said building committee let the contract of building to the lowest
responsible contractor. That if, when all bids are in, the lowest
responsible bid is above the cost recommended herein, said com
mittee will report back to the Church for instructions.
7. We recommend the appointment of a finance committee of
three, whose duty it will be to audit the treasurer's books quar
terly; see in person any his books may show in arrears on building
subscription, and any member who may not subscribe and urge the
same upon him or her. and otherwise aid said treasurer in his
duties, and see that all moneys are promptly invested.
S. As a business proposition we recommend that the money
paid in not be allowed to remain idle, even at 4 per cent., longer
than April 1st, 1905. and that the building be commenced on that
day: that when the money in hand is consumed in the use the Trus
tees of Church property be directed to mortgage such property for
balance necessary to complete building.
We are firmly convinced that with united effort this church can
be easeiy built. .
The building committee appointed was Rev. J. M. Holladay,
iW. Scot; Harvin, D. C. Shaw, S. M. Reardon, W. M. Plowden, E.
C. Horton, and Mesdames E. S. Ervin and W. B. Dickson.
The eight recommendations were then taken up seriatim.
IThe first seven recommendations were adopted with but little
discussion, bat the eighth, relaitive to adopting the recommenda
tion to mortgaging the property, provoked considerable discussion.
When the v-ote was taken 43 voted to empower the Trustees to
mortgage the ..hurch property, 6 voting against it.
The next congregational meeting of which there seems to be a
record was called February 12th, 1903, when the plans presented
by the building committee were adopted and congregation adjourned
to meet the next Sunday. At this meeting it was decided that if
the building committee could find no contractor to build the church
within $,000 to report back to the congregation for further in
CONGREGATIONAL MEETING. MAY 14, 1905.
A meeting of tbe coigregation was held on Sunday, May 14.
1905, for the purpose of hearing report of building committee, Rev.
J. M. Holladay in the chair, and E. C. Horton, Jr., acting clerk.
Report of building committee was read by Chairman W. S.
Harvin, which read as follows:
1. At a subsequent meeting of the congregation this comn
milttee was instructed to advertise for bids for the building of new
::. If said bids were over $8S,000) committee was to report back
to~ church for instructions.
:. Thbe committee has complied with the instructions, and bids
recei ved are as follows: $15,342.00, $14.750.00, $14.217,00, $10,978,
49. As you see. these bids vary very much. Some of them show
ing a difference of as much as $4.363.51. You can readily see that
this is w;ild bidding and out of reason. Your committee has gone
as far as it can without further instruction from the church. And 1
we the committee take the liberty of recommending the following. I
We believe that with judicious management the church can be
built by the present plans for much less than the bids are.
And we respectfully suggest that the church employ a compe
tent superintendent, purchase all material, employ all labor and.
build this church itself. By doing this most of the lumber in old
building can be used in new building.
After the reading of report. Rev. J. M. Holladay offered the
Since no satisfactory bid has been made for the constructionI
01 new building. and since there is so wide a ditference between
the bids submitted. the building committee is hereby authforized to
employ a competent foreman and build the newv church: provided,.
however, that after the architect has submitted his estimate of the
real cost of building. and after the committee has again gone -overt
and given a conservative estimate of what the building should cost,
and it is found that the building will probably cost more than
$9,000O, then the whole matter must be again submitted to the con
regation: and provided, further, that no work shall be undertaken
until the building committee has funds in hands.
A vote was tl.en taken upon this resolution and unanimously
There being no further busineg the meeting adjourned.
This story of building the church and paying the debt will be
coitinued by the Pastor at the morning service on Sunday at the
burning of the mortgage.
