While in Florence last week a sug
estion was made to organize the to

orce an early sale of the weed in order
to get to other ufarkets, and the result
Ls that our farmers do not get the price
rheir-product is entitled to. The pro
posed organization purposes to have a
Longer time in which to market, and
hereby give to the growers time to
~rade and otherwise put the weed into
thape that will bring more money, as
it is, the foreign buyers come here,stay
a very short time, and require the to
bacco rushed into the market so they
:an get to the markets in North Caro
ina, and Virgingia. Then too, the
matter of warehouse charges is a fea
ure that the association will take into
~onsideration-the growers complain
f the charges being too high, and they
intend to ask for legislation to regulate
his. Tbe law now fixes the charges
but this was done when the tobacco in
iustry was in its infancy, the charges
fxed at that time have not been chang
ed, and it is contended that' with the
uantity of tobacco grown now the
harges can be considerably reduced
and still leave a fine profit for the ware
Lousemen. Clarendon being quite a
tobacco growing section, we should
like to have the views of some of the
farmers on this subject. We confess
our inability to know whether by leg.
islation a longer market can be secur
ed, and whether or not the charges of
the warehousemen are out of propor
tion, but should there be an association
formed, those put at the head of it
should be conservative business men
who have a full knowledge of the to
bacco culture, and are acquainted with
the methods of the various markets.
Magistrate Bradham had before him
last Saturday a case which created con
siderable interest, not to say indigna
tion. A Mr. Ellis, of East Orange, N.
J.was a guest at the home of Mr.J.McD
MFaddin, near Manning, and upon the
jinvitation of Mr. Sam Barron, he ac
companied Mr. Barron and other
gentlemen to Santee on a hunt, but be
fore starting Mr. Ellis inquired if a
license was required. Mr. Barron look
ed up the law and found a section,
which in his opinion, and the opinion
of others, that covered just such a
a case, and he so informed his friend.
The section provides that a resident
free holder has the right to invite: a
non-resident to hunt with him on a
special occasion without a license.
Feeling that it was not necessary to
procure a license, the party hunted 3
days in the Santee swamp, and they
say, they got game--no proof so far as
>re. Entire Stock and Fi

were taken for it. The matter. wa
reported to Mr. Grumble,who Is a gami
warden, living in the Santee section,h
teleplioned to Manning and had Mr
Ellis detained on a charge of huntini
without a license. The trial was set foi
Saturday, at which time the case wa.
heard in the presence of a number o:
interested spectators. The State wa
represented by Hon. J. H. Lesesne
and the defense by J. W. Wideman,
Esq. The evidence was convincing thai
there was no intention of violating any
law, in fact, it was shown that the de
fendant desired to take out a license ii
such was required, and as he stated,
no true sportsman will violate the
game laws of State knowingly. The
jury heard the evidence and the argu
ments, and after the magistrate's
charge, in a few minutes, acquitted the
defendant, to the gratification of those
who heard the case and knew the facts
and circumstances. We hope that Mr.
Ellis' experience in Manning will not
leave a bad taste in his mouth for this
section, and we do not think it will, be
cause it must have been gratifying t
him, a stranger, to note the sincere
sympathy the people here had for him
in his embarassment. He must come
back to Manning just to prove his
heart is in the right, place. Mr. Ellis
is a member of the New Jersey Bar
and frequently visits Greenville, S. C.,
where he married a friend. of Mrs.
J. McDowell McFaddin. -

tomato and corn clubs would have been

that Viola Thames and Allie Turbe

On last Sunday night the death angel
visited the home of Mr. and Mrs. G. 0.
Lowder, of Sumter, and took from
them, dear little Harry, he had pneu
monia and lived only a week he was a
sweet boy and was never known to ut
ter a bad word, or even give his parents~
or anybody a frown, he was an excep
tion, he was only 10 years of age, he
was a beautiful and an obedient boy.
During his illness he called his mother
and father to bis bed side and kissed
them and said to them he wanted to go
to Heaven. Everything that hands
could do was done to try to savs him
but the Lord knew best and took him
home. With him a precious one from
us is gone, a voice we loved is still a
vacant place witbin our home which
never can be filled, we loved him so
good it was hard to giye him up, but
the Lord's Will must be done.
They brought his body from Sumter
and placed it in the Oak Grove Ceme

was lightly scraping down the limp

After she had finished the scraping
she ran the flowers into a deep pitcher
and going to the stove took from it the
steaming hot teakettle and poured the
bubbling water into the pitcher until it
just covered the stems, leaving the
roses above the surface.
"There, in a little while I shall have

Final Session Marred b3
of the Nettles Case
The South Carolina Conference t
day decided to locate Rev. Stephen A
Nettles, for years editor of the Curi
tian Advocate, and not to allow him a
active pastoral charge in either. of th
South Carolina Confernoes. The vet
on-the resolution was 76 to 65 an
Bishop Denny held that Nettles ws
thierefore not entitled to a pastora
The resolution was offered by . (
Boulware, A. H. Bes, J. T. M
Farlane, J. L. Harley, J. J. Stevensor
A. V. Harbin and G. C. Hutchinso
and Wias as follows: "We the unde
signed members of the South Carolin
Conference move that Rev. S. A
Nettles be locatea on the ground <
unacceptability." The adoption of thi
resolution means that Rev. Nettle
still remains a member of the confei
ence, but that he is not given an
charece. The vote came after- a length
debate and one that showed signsc
becoming warm at several points, bt
was kept rigidly within parliamentar
bounds by Bishop Denny, who held th
speaker down to strict observance c
parliamentary rules and thus preven1
ed anything personal in the argument
S. A. Nettles, after there had bee
repeated expressions of members c
the Conference to have him speak i
his own defense, made a few remark
in his own behalf, but declined to mak
a plea for forgiveness, as he had bee:
asked to do by his brethren of the Cot
Immediately after the.,vote was take:
and he found that the Conference has
decided to locate him, Mr. Nettles asb
ed to be allowed to make charge
against a number of members of th
Conference for lying. He named Rev
W. I. Herbert, before he was stoppe
by the Bishop, who stated that sh
charges must go before his presidin
elder and be investigated before the;
could come beforo the Conference. On
of the reasons assigned for locatini
Rev. Nettles was that he had used ur
becoming language toward his assc
ciates, having cailed at least two mem
bers of the Conference liars during it
session, according to statements mad
in the Conference this morning.
B ?efore the appointments were reac
Bishop Wilson made a short address
'egging for harmony in the two Con
ferences saying that a spirit of peac
and brotberly love should be shown b;
all and that all should strive togethe
for the good of the church. Bisho]
Collins Denny thanked the people c
the city and the members of the Cot
ference for the courtesies which has
been extended to him and the kindnes
shown him. He reiterated the wora
of Bishop Wilson calling for peace ani
harmony in the Conference and amon,
its members He said that he has
tried his best in giving out the assigr
ments to put each preacher in the Cot
ference which was most acceptable tu
him. It was a very difficult matter te
adjust in a manner satisfactory to al
and if he had failed in any point, h
asked the forbearance of the member
of the two Conferences.
The morning session was taken u:
in hearing reports of the various con
mittees, the electing of committees t
serve in the two Conferences durn,
the coming year and in the discussio:
of the Nettles resolution. The las
business of the Conference as usual
was the reading of the appointments b
the Bishop, a matterlwhich is alway
of the greatest importance to the meui
bers of the Conference and awaite
with Interest all over the State.

if f the' old South Carolina Methodist
s Conference was held. In future there
s will be two Conferences and two places
v The feature of the day's session was
y the fight on the motion to locate Rev.
af S. A. Nettles and not to give him areg
t ular pastorate. The fight showed that
i there were many warm friends of Rev.
B Nettles in both the South Carolina and
f the Upper South Carolina Conferences,
-but that these supporters of Rev Net
.ties were in the minority. Many elo
a quent and able pleas were made in be
f half of Nettles, but these did not prove
2 sufficient to turn the tide in his favor.
s A. H. Best, J. L. Harley, two of the
B signers of the resolution, took the floor
2 in urging its passage, but other than
Sthese there were none to push the mo
tion. Mr. Best is of the Pacolet Cir
2 cuit. He thought that in mercy to
I others the resolution should be passed.
- Rev. Harley is chairman of the Anti
s Saloon League in this State and, while
B a personal friend of Nettles, favored
-the resolution as he thought it would
I be injurious to the church to continue
B Nettles in a pastorate. .He thought
Sthis would be an act of mercy pn Net
F ties, as he did not believe that Nettles
B would be acceptable anywhere, and
i that his usefulness had waned.
- Rev. L. F. Beatyv, chairman of the
- Sunday school board, made a strong
Splea for Rev. Nettles, who he said had
s sinned no doubt, but others also had
B sinned and he believed that Nettles
was sorry for his mistakes of the past.
,Rev. P. B. Wells also made a strong
,plea for mercy, saying that while Rev.
- Nettles had not been acceptable to
a some as editor of the Southern Chris
i tian Advocate, it had never been shown
e that he had not proved acceptable in
3 charge of a pastorate. Rev. Best went
f over charges against Rev. Nettles,
- which were threshed out last year at
i the Rock Hill Conference.
S Rev. R. R. Dagnall made a motion to
table the motion. but his motion failed.
1 Revs. L. F. Beaty, Henry Stokes, P.
f B. Wells, B. G. Guess, S. 0. Cantey,
S. D. Vaughn, G. C. Leonard made
- pleas on behalf of Rev. Nettles, while
- J. C. Chandler and others asked for a
) statement from Rev., Nettles before
they were willing to vote on the ques
tion. It was after there had been re
B peated requests that Rev. Nettles be
s beard from that he arose from his seat
and addressed the chair for recognition.
)As he rose to make his defense ev
-ery person in the honise leaned for
3 ward to hear what he had to say and
i his words were listened to with the
2 greatest intentness. He told of how,
t as the son of of a Methodist preacher
,and knowing the hardships of a Meth
V odist preacher's life, he had received
Sthe call to preach and after it had
come to him again and again, he went
into this work. For 11 years he filled
the storates to whieh he was sent
-and then for nine years he had filled
-the position as editor of the Southern
-Christian Advocate. He had. during
that time never had any diilculty~with
Iany member of the board,and everyone~
I was now bis firm friend and statnding
a by him. He realized his ftults and
regretted them. No man could ever
isay that he had lied and he despised a
-lie. He had correspondence to prove
s every charge he had ever made, but
thought that these charges should have
been brought before the Conference.
.1 He still felt that he was called to preach
and he was willing to do what be be
d lieved to be his duty.
* J. H. Mendley stated that he also
- had had difficulty with Rev. Nettles in
the settlement of his account. He
,thought that he had been overcharged,
.but was willing to pay for the sake of
. peace. At this point Rev. Nettles rose
.and ask 1 if he might ask a g'estion.
He was .nted the privilege and ask
ed if Mr. dley meant to say that he had
been charged what he did not owe.
>.Mendley stated that be did not think
that he owed as much as he had been
charged. Nettles then stated that he
had letters from subscribers stating
d that they bad turned over to Rev.
h Mendley money which the latter had
not turned over to him. Mendley
' further stated that he had heard Net
a tIes say that a certain man bad lied,
r while he was discussing the settlement
with Nettles. After some mnore dis
cssion the vote was called for and
Nettles was located.

The session Saturday afternoon prov-.
ed one of the most interesting of the
Conference. Final plans for the divis
ion of the Conference were decided on
and Trinity Church Char'leston chosen
as the meeting place of the South Car
lina Conference for next year, and
Bethel Church, Spartanburg, as the
meeting place for the Upper South Car.
lina Confesence. The Rev. W. C.
Kirkland was electod editor of the
Southern Christian Advocate when
Rev. R. E. Stackhouse declined to
serve, and Rev R. W. Owen was elect
ed field secretary of the Sunday school
work in South Carolina to take the
place of J. M. Way, who resigned to
fill a larger field of operations with the
South Atlantic Division of Sunday
schools, vhich covers several States.
The roll was called and the character
of the ministers was passed upon, there
nt being one who failed to pass.
Saturday night the Epworth League
meeting of the Conference was held.
The address of the Rev. S. A. Steel,
D. D., proved a most instructive, liter
ry offering to the conference. Dr.
Steel took for his subject "The Book,"
referring to the great value of the
Bible as a literary, historical and phil
sophical reference book. The meet
ing was presided over by Rev. Geo. C.
Leonard. presidenit of the Epworth
League Board, and a few remarks con
erning the work and value of the lea
us were made by 3. C. Smith, presi
dnt of the State Epworth League Con
At the Saturday afternoon session
much business was attended to. The
haraeter of all of the preachers was
passed upon. The discussion of the
final plans of division took up some
ime. There was some debate as to the
names of the two conferences, the ques
tion being settled by the names already
suggested in the McLeod resolution,
the eastern Conference being called
the South Carolina Conference and the
.estern Conference the Upper South
arolina Conference. There was no
uestion of locating the ministers in the
onference which they preferred and
this makes the announcemeut of ap
ointments an even more interesting
matter than usual.
