After the morning service, con
ducted by Rev. T. E. P. Woods, a
most appetizing and satisfying bas
ket dinner was served.
At 1.30 the convention was called
to order and after devotional ex
ercises, a short address on The
Mission'of the Sunday School was
delivered by Rev. T. E. P. Woods.
Then the following questions were
discussed in open meeting: Why
should we hold Sunday School Con
ventions? How should district
work be done? Why "do so few
men comparatively attend Sunday
School? What is the Home Depart
ment? Why ought each church to
maintain a Sunday School?
After this discussion which was
very interesting the organization of
the Fifth district Sunday School
Associition was effected with the
following officers: Mrs. John
White i resident, W. A. Caruthers
vice-president', Miss Mary Franklin
secretary and treasurer. This is

Resolutions of Respect.
Another one of our members has
been called hence to swell the host
who chant his praises forever.
Bro. Hardy Walton departed this
life on the evening of Sept. 14, 1904.
We are grieved to prepare this sad
tribute of respect to one so dear to
us all. lie was a faithful friend, a
generous, noble hearted man, whose
deeds of kindness and charity were
many, and his absence is deeply
felt by family, church and a host of
friends. As husband and lather
words would fail to do him justice.
We cherish the memory of him in
his devotion and sacrifice as he
labored for the comfort and pleasure
of those so dear to him. But when
the cruel baud of the murderer end
ed this life of his, he laid down his
labors on earth and assured his dear
ones he would meet them in the
great beyond. '
Resolved, That in the death of
Bro. Walton the church realizes the
loss of a devoted, faithful member,
one true to his convictions and
strong in the faith.
Resolved, That we -extend our
heart-felt sympathy to the bereaved
wife and children praying that they
may, through the dark shadow of
sorrow, see his smiling face and
feel hi guiding hand leading them
to that " heavenly home to join the
loved ones gone before.
Resolved, That tLese resolutions
be sent to the Bolivae Bulletin
Done, by order of Ebeuezer
church, Nov. 6, 1904.

Use Mexicans to Pick Cotton.
Mexican peons are faking the
places of negroes in Mississippi
cotton fields not - a long distance
from Memphis, and a car load of
them has been taken to Gnnnison,
Miss., within the last two weeks.
II. Mr Sledge, of Sledge, Wells
& Co., the bag and, cordage con
cern on Second street, procured this
carload of sixty Mexicans to work
on his 1,200 acre cotton plantation
nar Gunnison. His son, O. D.
Sledge, with S. B. Webb, an employ
ment agent, went to Eagle Pass and
secured the Mexicans.
I had to do it, because I could
not get negroes," said Mr. Sledge
today to the Scimitar. "They
work for 50 cents a hundred pounds,
and probably pick 100 to 125 pounds
per day. The negroes are better,
but they had been getting $1 per
day, and we could not get thein at
"In the long run the Mexicans
are cheaper, considering everything.
My contract with Mr. Webb was to
get me only Mexican families. My
son went along to oversee the matter.
"We wanted two carloads, or
120, half for some other parties
near me who wanted Mexicans, but
we were only able to secure sixty.
"Immigration laws? Well these
ftllo ws were on this side of the line,
but even then the immigration of
ficials interfered and would not per

physical defects. They had to un
dergo a riLi test. They were on

These Mexicans are not the first
that have been brought to Missis
sippi in this way, but the practice,
however, is quite unusual. A car
