COLUMBIA FEMALE COLLEGE.
The agitation of the removal of
this old and honored institution
cr.:ates intense in'erest in the Con
;ereuct ; it is 6i.cused on the
streets, around the church door and
everywhere: and doubtless the dis
Cussiou in the session of the Con
ference this morning at io o'clock
will be spicy and exhat.stive. It is
a grave question, but one which
might have been avoided It was,
in our judgment, a mislake to have
ever attempted to auction a college
to the highest bidder. The educa
tion of the young is too sacred to
be brought into such an unenviable
position, and the manly, Christian
spirit of every follower of Christ, in
the way that John Wesley taught,
ought to repudiate the method by
which the removal of the college is
sought to be accomplished. Where
would such a precedent lead to?
What institution of learning would
be safe if such a precedent were
established? Really every incentive
to the upbuilding of great institu
tions of learning would be nipped
in the bud, because there would be
no pledge or assurance of perma
But, as we understand the ques
tion, the effort to remove the col
lege from Columbia is entirely with
out ground, and the bids are too in
significant to be considered for one
moment by men who take a busi
ness view of the transaction. The
present building occupied by the
college could not be erecied today.
for fifty thousand dollars; to force
the property on the market it
would not command more than
twenty thousand dollars; the build
ing is mortgaged for about fifteen
thousand dollars; therefore it is
probable that the sale of the prop
erty would do but little more than
liquidate the debt. Then it follows
- that the Conference is called upon
to sacrifice property really worth
fifty thousand dollars for educa
tional purposes for thirty-nine
thousand dollars and throw into
the bargain a most desirable lot in
-the center of the city of Columbia!
That would be a; bad trade-so it
apears to us/to say nothing of the
advantages of Columbia over the
towns that are competing for the
There is, however, a moral side
* to the question. Columbia con
tributed the larger part of the
money that went into the present
structure. The money was con- S
tributed over half a century ago in 9
good faith "for the maintajinace of 2
a Female College in Columbia." S
The charter of the insiitution so t
declares. Are there no moral ob- 3
ligptions involved on the part of
* the Conference? Can that body
now break, with impunity, the
compact made between the fathers 1k
and the city ? It does2not seem so p
to us. But 'many contributions ft
were made to the Twentieth Cen 2
tury Fund for Columbia Female t<
College. Do not those contribu- 'I
tions strengthen, if that be possi- aa
ble, the moral obligation already S
set forth? ti
It is a grave question, and in a
view of all that is involved the
Conference ought to think very se
riously before it acts. The matter,
in our judgment, ought never to Ui
have been agitated. t
Bishop Duncan is an excellentA
presiding officer, even if he does
sometimes by his cutting remarks
knock out some of the brethren.
It is always done in a pleasant way
and no one takes offense. The
Bishop is very much of a dictator I'
and very positive in his rulings, to

would soon lose control of the body.

Dr. Whisonant is from Louisville,
Ky., and is secretary of the Gener
al Board of Church Extension. He
earnestly outlined the work of the
Board and presented the demands
upon the Board for funds and im
pressed the importanne and the ne
cessity of the preachers taking full
collections for this fund. He stated
that his Board now had calls from
three thousand churches for aid
from this fund. That there were
also enough calls from foreign
lands to exhaust all the money at
the command of the Board. He,
too, urged upon the preachers the
importance of the necessity of
taking collections for this work.
