COTTON MANUFACTURERS APPEAL.
More Cordial Relations Between China
and United States Sought.
Washington, March 19.? A number
of representatives of the American
Asiatic Association and the National
Association of Manufacturers appeared
Friday before a sub-committee of the
bouse of foreign affairs committee,
urging the passage of the Foster hill to
amend the Chinese exclusion act so
that high class Chinese may be admitted
into this country without obstruction.
Capt. Ellison A. Smythe, of Pelzer,
Messrs. W. E. Beattie, of Piedmont,
John W. Baker, of Batesvilie, J. A.
Brock, of Anderson and V. M. Mont
gomery, of Spartanburg, were present,
as were also Mr. D. A. Tompkins, of
Charlotte, and a number of other cot
ton mill men of North Carolina. Sev
eral clergymen, among them Bishop
McVickan, of Rhode Island, and Bishops
Moore and Cranston of the Methodist
church, appeared also.
All of these were interested in so
regulating the relations between Amer
ica and China with respect to the ad
mission of Chinese into this country as
to establish more cordial relations be
tween ihe two countries. The manu
facturers want to prevent the hostility
of the Chinese so that they may have
a market for their manufactured goods
and the Bishops want more amicable
relations so as to secure protection for
the Missionaries. They are opposed to
the admission of coolie laborers, who
would compete with American unskilled
workmen, or rather they are not mak
ing any fight upon the exclusion of
coolies, believing that the Chinese peo
ple would not resent that, but they do
not want educated and well-to-do Chi
namen to be discriminated against,
thus arousing hostility in China to
America's goods and American religion.
Mr. Tompkins was one of those who
made a speech before the committee,
occupying about an hour. Capt. Smy the
was also asked a number of questions
as to the marketing of goods in China
and other phases of the subject. Con
siderable interest was manifested in
the hearing, the committee room being
As to Special Terms.
Columbia, March 19.? If he finds out
from the assistant attorney general
that the law allows him such a discre
tion Governor Heyward will not order
any special terms of court for this
year, and if he decides that the statute
makes ordering them obligatory he
will refuse to pay the judges as the leg
islature cut off this appropriation. He
will simply report the bill to the legis
lature. He will not pay from the con
Reception at Red Springs.
A very interesting communication
whs recently printed in tho Columbia
State, giving an account of tho wel
come extended to the Rev. I. K. Me
David, the new pastor of the Baptist
(.'lunch at Red Springs, N. C. Mr. Mc
David is a native of Greenville County,
S. C, and was graduated in literature
and the classics at Furnian University,
and in divinity at tho Southern Baptist
Theological Seminai'y. The reception
held in his honor was at the residence
of Mr. and Mrs. R. W. Livorniore.
Several hours were devoted during the
afternoon to a genoral reception ot the
people of tho town, and at night the
young people made merry among them
selves. From the account in Tho State
the following is taken:
"Receiving in the hall were: Misses
Annie Helle DeVano ane Ida Townsend,
while Mrs. Livormoro, Mrs. R. F, De
Vane and Dr. and Mrs. J. L. McMillan
introduced the guests to Mr. McDavid
in the front parlor. Miss Fannie De
Vane presided over the punch bowl and
most gracefully dispensed the delicious
nectar to the appreciative visitors.
During the evening light refreshments
were served in the dining room.'1
"It would be hard, indeed," we are
told, "to And a town that, in propor
tion to its size, has more culture and
refinement than Red Springs. Settled
by the Scotch, the town keeps up to a
high level the line characteristics and
noble qualities of this sturdy race."
We have no doubt that Mr. McDavid
will be greatly liked by the people of
his new home, and that he will lill his
pastorate to Uio entire satisfaction, not
only of his own congregation, but of
all the religious people in the commu
nity.?News and Courier.
