Whereas, While we realize and ac
knowledge with gratitude the tireless

at the earliest time possible.
We understand that the money is
now in hand for the completion of
said road, and the need for the chain
gang of our county is so imperative,
we hereby endorse the idea of con
tracting the Pickens county and North
Carolina highway as early as possible,
and the removing of our chaingang to
other roads in the county.
E. P. McCravy.
Whereas, our county, our state, and
our nation have, by the ballots of
their infiabitants, and by the power
conferred upon their Law Making
Bodies by the ballot, decreed that the
prohibition of the manufacture andi
sle cf all intoxicatintg liquors should
be strictly enforced in our land: and,
Whereas, The p ohibition law as en
ar.te-l in bein' daily flagrantly viola
tQd by large numbers of thoughtless
citi.ens; and to such an extent has
this violation infected cur social sys
tem that it clogs our circuit courts
with pctty liquer cases the trial of
which costs our tax-payers enormous
sums annually: and
Whereas, After such trial and con
viction numbers of the violators of
the prohibition law are allowed to
pIY only a nominal fine and thereby
escape the full penalty of the law for
their crimes, therefore,
we, the members of the Pickens
county Demceratic convention , in
convcution assemblcd, (o resolve:
That we believe it will be for
the better enforcement of the said
prohibition law for the general as
sembly at their next session to pass
a law, that heree ftcr all persons con
vieted \for making, stIling or trans
porting intoxiceating liquors shall
serve the sentence en the chainigang
without any part of that sentence be
ing suspended or thle alternative of
a money fine. That we earnestly
urge upon those who represent us in
the next general assembly to do their
best to have such a law passed.

SINGING CONVENTION AT ENON
Great. Throngs Attend Two Day Ses
sion of County Convention.
The Pickens county singing con
vention held perhaps the best meet
ing in its history with Enon church
Saturday and Sunday April 29 and
30. The congregations on both days
were reecord kreaking congregations.
On Sunday thte crowd was estimated
by some observers as 2,000. The
house was packed from early morning
till the close in the afternoon. The
welcome and entertainment was all
that could be desired. Rev. B. P.
Mitchell, the paster of the church,
gave us a cordial welcome. J. Luther
Bagwell was busy in making all the
visitors feel at home. At dinner both
dlays a large table was filled with good
things to c:t and plenty of it, under
the large shade trees which grow
near by the church, an ideal place
for such occasions. Many preachers
were present and added to the interest
of the meeting.. Rev. W. B. Justus,
with his cornet, added greatly to the
music. Rev. Jack Stansell, Rev. H.
F. Rice, Rev. J. L. Guy, Rev. W D
Hammett, Rev. R. A. Hudson, the
pastor, Rev. B. P. Mitchell, by their
presence, prayers and approval added
greatly to the interest and enjoyment
of the meeting. Those from other
scetiens were as follows: Profs. Fair
cloth, Grisham and Iunicutt, of
Greenville; Prof. George L. Wiging
ton, of Piedmont; Prof. Weams, of
Geergip. who had with him his little
daughter just five years old who sang
several songs with her father to the
delight of the congregation. She can
sing any part cf a song f rom the
highest to the lowest. She is a won
dler. Prof. Thomson, from Tennessee:
Prof. Prince, from Mississippi; Prof.
Duncan, from Texas. These gentle
men are all fine singers. Then we
l'ad such a fine lot of our own true
yoke fellows, such as "BIii" John Le
'may, the champion base singer of the
state. Hle might have made a fctone
with his veice if he had been traine-l
in early life. Then we hazv the
sweetest gospel singers in many of
our brethern, Prof. R. 1. oldi-ing,
Prof. S. N. Bolding, Conduc tor Crain,
Jack Dalton, J. H. Riggin.:, R. C. Rob
inmon, W. W. Norris, Brother Kin'.
the heart singer: A. S. t4 ke Cla(7
Le'sky, L. ('. Chapm-m1:, W. \V. T.
Nallev, J. Luther Bae.well, ID. E.
Garrett a!n Prof. C. M. Cassell.
Manhy of our good sing(rs did not
lead a single song but iointd heart
ily in the singing. It is known by
everybody that Prof. R. I. Bolding
and Prof. J. IT. Ri-.rgin= are amn1o
our best singers andi yet the beautilul
Chuistian spirit manifcste: by these
br( thern, and ethers that I might
name. They are willing to take a
back seat in order that. others could
hrve a chance to sing.
Early Sun day 1, mcrning the sintring
reached high watc r mark. The sing
ini was perhaps the best ever heard
in our C'.urnty. Song followed song.
The interest was intense; feeling rose
high, teais we'e flowiing freely.
Many people were moved by the
r;athos of the sintg rs. When Prof.
J.f' Duncan. of Texas, sang "Come
Listcn to my Story,'' and when Prof.
J. Porter, of Tennessee, sang the
song which he himself con po d in
the trenches in France, "Jesus Will
Take C:re of Me." Again when Prof.
Gresham sang "Press On," when Prof.
Blding sang "Don't Forget to Pray,"
when Prof. Wehams sang "Ilark the
Song," andl when Prof. John Led 'ev
sang "Swvet ping Through the G.ties."
Oh, my soul, how hearts did swell,
tears flowv, as the song waves roled.
Me think the angels must ha've stop
pcdl and listened while saints smniled
at thc*o. o! 'vork goibw on.

WIRELESS STATION AT EASLEY.
Remarkable Outfit Installed By, An
- Employee of The Sentinel
Most of Tie Sentinel readers have
read about the . radiophone and its
seemingly Impossible accomplish
ments, but comparatively few of them
know that here in Pickens county is
a station where one may sit In a room
and hear people 1000 miles or more
away talk as plainly as though they
were within a few feet of the listener.
Yet it is a fact.
Walter Hester, linotype operator of
The Sentinel, has a set of instruments
in his raum at Easley thru which he
ha h vrd messages from as far as
Oak lanid, Calif., about 3000 miles
away. It is a daily occurrance for
hii t-> heer what is sent out by the
hroadcas;ting stations at Pittsburg,
Newark, Detroit, Memphis, Chicago
and Atlanta. He has heard wireless
itleograph messages from France and
A ('oml)Iete radioplhAne station
