Mr. Leon .1. Williams. of Ed geileld,
is one of th most noted and Intonse
Reformers in the State, and Is now a
member of tle State board of control.
Not long ago a barrel of bear was
shipped to his address at Elgoileld,
and it was seized by the dispensary
constables, which led him to mate the
"I was at Edgelled'o last Monday,
and, much to my surprise, I learned
that a barrel of beer, shipped to we as
a member of the State board of con
trol, had been seizod by the consta
bles. It had been shipped without my
knowledge, I suppose as samples,
since I am charged with buying beor
for the Stato dispensary. It had been
%t Edgeflold for two weeks.
" G avernor Evans went over to Edge
field, and learning that the boer was
there. ordered the constables to selze
it. All this happened without ny
knowledge. At the same time the
boor was at Etdgofiold a keg of contra
band liquor was shipped there to
another party and seized by the con
stables, which was released. Why
this ditieront treatment? I am charged
with purchasing beor to supply the
people and should of course j now what
I am doing, and assort that it is pro
pe' and legiti'tO for me to receivO
samples.. lven if it is improper, I am
not reslpOns ible for shipments mado to
me without my knowledge.
"Now the Governor has frequently
ordered selzed liquors released (som3
of it consigned to his relatives), which
was shipped contrary to law and
clearly contraband and forfeited to the
State. lie has frequently petitioned
the boar d of control to release seized
liquor. and all these releases deprive
the State of valuable proporty; besides
it is nearly al ways consigned to enemies
of the dispensary law.
' 'le has made an arrangement now
whereoy he can nullify sections 25 and
:I of the dispensary law and retain to
himself the tight to keep contraband
liquor out of the hands of the board of
control so that he can release it, for no
other Iurpose, in ny opinion, than to
make votos for himself for the United
States Senate. i have a caso in point

Now what are those reasons ? Eviden
tly to vent his spleen on 'ie and to
pulish me if possible, for n, other
reason than that I have refused to -ur

as ia part of those unlaw fully appro

Atlanta were used to have a steno

Whlie i reg ret the necessity for
those statements. I shall always be
dlefeno ' i myself. I des~ire to say that
1 sh6i resort to no such low dLown
tricks to pun ish the Governor, but will
be found holding uip his hands and as-.

THE CLOSING EX[RCISES.
Of the Southern Baptist. Convention
Iati a Stormy Debate on Tem
The 51st sessIon o! the Southern
Baptist Convention adjourned at n11n
on the' 12th inst. to meet next year at
Wilmington, N. C., the first Friday
following the first Sunday in May.
When tho convea.tion convened, but
few delegates were in their seats, but
the auditorium was soon comfortably
filled. Tho reports from the com
mittees on young people's work, and
finance, and business of the Sunday
school board woro road and accepted.
The committeo recommen-led that
arrangements for printing be left to
the discretion of the Sunday school
board. E-nrollnent committee report
ed that 811) delegat.4 ott of a total of
1,162 accredited to the convention had
attended. A long and heated debate
was precipated by the introduction of
a totiperance resolution by J. B. Cran
fill, of Texas. Dr. Cranfill was vice
presidential candidate In 1892 on the
prohibition ticket. The resolution
took advanced ground against the
liquor tratlic in all ramifications, and
advised the eximulsion by the churches
of members ongaged in the business.
Frank I-,ton, son of Dr. T. T. i'Xttoa,
pastor of WalInut street Iltaptist Church,
now traveling abroad, objected to it
first. as a political manoervre. then
denounced it as an ofrwt to reflect on
hij father, whose church has had as
membore for many years, two weil
known distillors. Ife referred to the
late D.ctors Manly and Broadus, the
pillars in the church. as upholding Dr.
lEaton's past action, and the debate
became qfite acimonius. Pinally
young liton, failing to) secur -post
ponement of action. offered a com
prormise aiondment, which expressed
the hope that the action proposed by
the resolution, might in timo be taken
by the churches, and added, as a rider
that we hope the time is coming when
Baptist churches will not retain in
their fellowship members who fail to
render account for mission money hold
in trust. This was a back-handed slap
at Dr. Cranfill, and referred to an un
pleasant incident of past history in his
relations with his State convention.
It reopened an old sore, for Iactors
Eaton and Cranfill have been at odds
for years. Aitton's amendment was
tabled, and the resolutions finally
passed almost unanimously. A resolu
tion was carried. recommending to
the Foreign Mission B.)ard the estab
aishment of Bap'.ist missions in 'ales
Line, with headquarters at Jerusalem.
After thanking the press and peo
tile of Chattanooga, the convention ad
WILL UPE A 'NARROW MARGIN.
Senator Hill Figures a Close Fight
on Silver at Chicago.
Senator 11111 has been doing some
fihuring on the possibility of the silver
1)cnocrats controlling at Chicago, says
the Washiugton L'ost, and has comne
to the conclusion that the result will
depend upon a very narrow margin.
In fact, he figures that it is (uito pos
sible that the sixteen votes of Nebras
ka, one way or the other, may decide
the contebt. As is well known there
w ill be two delegations fron Nebraska,
one alleged to be composed of -ederal
ollice-holders and other souud money
men, and the other being the p
sentatives of the silvce faction of the
party. The National committee, w hich
wilL make up the temporar-y roll o[ the
conventiont, has majority of gold stan
dar-d men, it is said, and upon its de
cision as to the seating of oneO of the
Nebi-aska delegates the wholu outcome
of the convention may hinge.
T1he Post recently, in esitimaiutes of
the bilver- outlook, placed Illinois fir-st
