Mrs. Mary. Smith is quite busy now
looking after her cow and calf. She
is assisted by Mrs. Curtis. Mrs,
Smith has let the contract for a milk

Mr. Walter W. Page snent Sunday

14 S. Hill street.
Miss H. Parthenia Page, who has
been very sick, is slowly convalescing.
To our way of thi. iking, this group,
while meritorious in many things,
places the emphasis of the dissolu
tion of our na.loiul organisation at
Chicago in the wrong place. The)
seem to place at the door of the prin
ciples upon which our convention
was founded the blame for its tur
moil, for its non-constructive policy,
for Its undemocratic procedure, for
its demagogism; when the tact is
that the democratic principles so
fundamental and essential in our
church and all of its organized ef
forts; the principle of democracy, of
our union, of our being together was
not at fault. Our being in one great
Baptist body was not the cause of
the sterility and turmoil. The caue
was in the failure of the manhood ot
the convention to assert itself in
terms of pure church democracy; the
failure was in the lack of construc
tive leadership; the failure of our
former united convention was In the
Inability of those In control to ad
vantageously organize and direct, the
great body of people under their In
fluence. The failure was in a grow
ing Intelligent convention trvma to
adjust itself to outgrown, antiquated
business rules, regulation and meas
ures. The failure was not In out
being together, It was In our nor bo
ing close enough together. This
group ot whom and to whom wi have
been speaking is also coTiinnratively
light, than truth. The leaders will
clothe themselves with honor if by
the power of their deeds they lead
the people aright.
The People's Defender.
Sunday was a great day in Till
lahoma. At the A. M. E. Church
tne Dig long taikeu-or rally was
pulled of. In the afternoon, the
Rev. D. J. Tate, D. D., preached a
great sermon for the rally. At the
M. E. Church the Rev. Dr. Eli J.
Guthrie was here holding his 3rd
quarterly meeting. He preached a
great sermon Sunday morning. The
Mock Tennessee Annual Conference
will be pulled off May 2, 3, 4, and 5th
at Howard Chapel M. E. Church. It
promises to be the biggest feature of
its kind that has been in Tullahoma
for a time. We won't know when
Howard Chapel has such an all-
round man as the pastor they how
have. The Rev. Dr. Sebastaln, is
musician, a lecturer, a singer of no
mean ability, a business man from
the word go; can use a typewriter as
fast as a chicken picking up corn.
Howard Chapel ought to be proud
of this godly man, and they really
Dr. J. P. Price is President. Mr,
"Abstract" Alredge who died in
Chicago, 111., last Tuesday was
brought through here for Sewanee
last Thursday morning for burial.
Mr. Aldreuge was oply sick four days
he was the husband of Mrs. Birdie
Gwynn, a brother-in-law of Mr. Ben
Darrell and Nepolian Taylor. Mr.
Aleredge was well known at this
place as he had once in time made
this his home. He has many friends
here. Mr. Wm. Hunt is on the sick
list at this writing. Mrs. Charity
Bibbrell Taylor of Nashville, spent
a few nights with Mrs. Silvia John
son last week. Mrs. Lena Brown of
806 South Main Street, Fairfield,
Iowa, spent last Thursday night with
Mrs. W. M. Jenkins. - Mrs. Brown
was en route to Estill Springs, where
she has some very valuable property
, to dispose of. She has a very nice
cottage with six or seven rooms and
a small farm that she is quite anx
lous to sell. Rev. Both was the guest
of Rev. J. W. Sebastain last Thurs
day. Rev. Carter and Rev. Gurthey
had a very dangerous proposition to
confront them laBt Monday when
they were returning from Rev. Car
ter s church near Mount Eagle. They
found that the river had overflown its
banks and after getting near the
middle a stop to the driver was given
by Rev. Carter and by quick turning
their lives were saved. The Eastern
Star is enlarging their number fast.
Last Thursday four more jumped the
fence. There is quite a deal of sick
ness in our community. Mrs. Laura
Rice is quite sick. Mrs. Laura Clen
denen is not improving any at this
writing. Mrs. Nica Bright is on the
elck lint. Mrs. Mattie Ryles and
her daughter Lillian are sick. Ellott
Glupton, Carl Vaught.and Robert
Vaughn and Ethed Vaughn are all
Yeported sick this week. The many
friends of Prof. Anderson will be
very proud indeed to know that he
has been re-elected as principal of
the public school for the next term,
and also Mrs. T. B. Spencer was re
elected. This speaks well for these
teachers. Mrs. Bettie Range was
called to Bell Buckle and Nashville,
last week on account of illness in
i her family. The Old MaidB Assocla
- tion and Convention will be repeated
PEACE WITH UNION OR PEACE
WITHOUT UNION, WHICH?
Judging from the tone of the de
nominational papers and writers
taut have appeared on the scene
since our peace conference in Mem
phis, one would inevitably conclude
that there are three classes or
groups of Baptists in the family of
Baptists as it relates to the peace
movement: First, iu group oue there
appears to be those who seem not
10 care either ior peace or union.
1'hey simply appear satislied and de
termined in our respective camps and
regard not the welfare or association
oi their brethren o opposite opin
ions. They profess to have peace of
wiud and heart and perfect ease of
conscience. The possibility of doing
a larger work for the Master, re
sulting from a united purpose and
understanding seems never to have
reached their minds. The Idea of a
larger happiness, a fuller sense of
joy resulting from the reconciliation
of brethren or children of the same
family seems never to have crossed
their vision. The fulfillment ot the
universal principle of "together we
stand and divided we fall" seems
stranse doctrine to them. The
prayer of our blessed Saviour, "Fa
ther, make them one even as we are
one," seems to have no attractive
ness for them. From their writings
one would consider that this group
would be very much displeased in
deed if any movement looking to a
better understanding among Baptists
should succeed. This group, how
ever, is small. It is not our purpose
to criticise any group as to sin
cerity, but giving themselves to
prayer and holy thinking, we see not
how they reach such a conclusion.
But, however, contrary to logic and
higher ideals, we here grant to each
group that we claim for ourselves
integrity, honesty of purpose and
Christian anxiety. 4
Secondly, there appears to be an
other group ot Baptists .who are
thinking and expressing themselves
In quite loud and Btrong terms con-
cerning the peace movement. This
group is contending for peace and
reconciliation without union of bodies
or conventions. Higher in purpose
and nobler in thought, in our opinion,
does this group stand and shine out
over the first group. They reason In
telligently and have much to their
credit; and the Baptists could not be
historically ' accused of departing
from all precedents, some examples
of which have worked wonderfully
well should they adopt this course.
It cannot be denied that when all the
Baptists were together in one mighty
convention, but little real construe
tlve work was done; that the body
had grown unintelligent as to proce
dure; that politics entered It; that
autocracy played a mighty , hand;
that the higher and richer purposes
of our organized efforts "to spread
the kingdom of Christ, to build up
large and effective Institutions as
But, thirdly, and finally, a.ir.t'aer
group vhich seems to be loth l irgc
and intelligent; in i:tct. this ijrony
seems to contain four Ifths or possi
bly nine-teuths of all the Paptioia of
the nation, both Kreat and small;
this group is strugglins; for, praying
for, hoping for peaca, reconciliation,
union. Their claims and arguments
seem to' be logical, intelligent, Chris
tian and Irresistible. First, this
group is contending that as a"iace
and denomination we are too weak
and inexperienced to divide or re
main separate; that the enterprises
already established by the church
and denomination, in order that they
should reach the hiahest state of
usefulness and Christian efficiency,
need and deserve the untied support
of the entire Baptist family; that
because we have made. mistakes, re
gardless of by whom these mistakes
and blunders were made, tb.it they
are not cause sufficient to eternally
separate the Baptist family and trans
mit to Baptist posterity a legacy of
hate and misunderstanding. This
group believes and contends that a
united, reconciled, peaceful National
Convention, reconstructed and formed
after the manner of pure Christian
democracy, directed by safe, sound,
sane leadership along the line of
modern business mehtods can do more
to advance the kingdom of grace to
which we are all pledged with a sa
cred oath than can two organizations
spending much of their time pulling
one against the other. This group
contends that there is sufficient In
telligence in the church to adjust its
differences, unite its strength and
thus prove to the world its capability
of self-government. This group is
anxious that the entire church shall
reap the benefits of the missionary
efforts and good graces of the great
white Baptist family. This group rec
ognlzes the supremacytof the church
as expressed in its organized efforts
to do the Master's work. This group
would preserve, would keep, would
hold sacred the memory and good
name of the fathers of the church,
of the leaders and pioneers ot Bap
tist work and effort; men who have
done much for the denomination;
whose names should ever adorn the
Baptist scroll of honor, even though
some of them may be in their graves,
others whose days are belnd them
and who are not prepared for this
day of lightning and speed. This
group desires to save them, one and
alf. This group recognizes the one
great need, and that is, the appear
ance of some mighty giant,' some
God-sent Baptist that Israel will hear
and follow; some man equal to the
emergencies of the hour. To this
group the editor of the People's De-.
fender, the writer of this little mes
