BAPTIST STATE CONVENTION.
PLACE FOR NEXT YEAR'S CON?
Third Day of the State Baptist Con
vention at Anderson Was Busy One
?Pastor of Die Anderson Church
mil Preach the Next Convention
Sermon?Reports Received and
Anderson, Dec. 9.?The third day
of the State Baptist Convention was
a busy one, and saw the completion
of many of the matters which are be?
fore this convention for action. The
greater part of the day's work con?
sisted In receiving the reports of the
special committees appointed to con?
sider the reports of the several stand?
ing committees. As yesterday, the
convention listened to a number of
Interesting addresses, anent the re?
ports before it and several important
matters were transacted.
The first business of the day was
the reception of the report of the
committee on time and place of the
next meeting, and the appointment
of a minister to preach the conven?
tion sermon. Laurens was chosen as
the place of next meeting, and the
pastor of the Anderson Church, John
F. Vines, D. D., was appointed the
next convention preacher. The time
was left to be determined by the exe?
cutive committee in order not to con?
flict with the meeting of the North
Carolina Baptist convention, but will
be held approximately at this time
of the year.
The report of the reference com?
mittee on the report of the State
board approved the work of the
board and paid tribute to Its officers,
Secretary T. M. Bailey and Assistant
Secretary W. T. Derleux. On account
of the fact that the board is still In
debt and the Importance of the work
appeared to demand special attention
at this time, Dr. H. L. Jones, intro?
duced a resolution calling for the ap?
pointment of the following special
committee to make further investi?
gation and report to the convention:
Charles A. Smith chairman; C. C.
Brown, Z. T. Cody, W. B. Oliver, J.
F. Vines, J. D. iiuggins, C. C. Vaugh
an, T. T. Hyde and L* M. Roper. This
committee will make some recom?
mendations tomorrow and its report
is awaited with great interest. :
The work of State missions is one
of the most Important considerations
coming before the convention for
which very nearly forty thousand
dollars was raised by South Carolina
Baptists lust year.
The report of the reference com?
mittee on the Sunday school depart?
ment of the State board, which has
general supervision of the Sunday
school policies of the Baptists of the
State was read and led to consider?
able discussion mainly on the point
of providing the Secretary of this de?
partment with better facilities for his
work, recommendation being made to
this effect to the State board. In
connection with the work of the Sun?
day school department a significant
vote was taken this morning which
pointed toward a substantial broad?
ening of the sympathies of the de?
nomination with related work un?
dertaken among sister denominations.
Anderson, Dec. 10.?The State Bap?
tist convention completed its work
for the year at the morning session
here today. Several important com?
mittee reports were considered and
adopted The most memorable hap?
pening of the day was the resignation
of Dr. T. M. Bailey, the venerable
secretary Of the State mission board,
after twenty-four years of service, to
become secretary emeritus for life.
Richard Carroll, the negro tent evan?
gelist, was introduced to the conven?
tion Just before Its close, and a spe?
cial collection taken for his work.
After devotional exercises and the
reading of the minutes of the pre?
ceding day the report on temperance
was read by Charles A. Smith and
adopted by the convention. The re?
port was a general commitment to
the cause of temperance. Supple?
menting the report R. W. Saunders
offered a resolution committing the
convention to the support of State?
wide prohibition. The resolution was
adopted, as a matter of course, with?
out opposition. Jj. E. Roper and J. D.
Hugging spoke on the report.
One of the most important matters
before tho convontion today was the
consideration of the report of the
soveral committees appointed I under
the Howard I* Jones resolution look?
ing toward a solution of the dlAcul
tles confronting the cause of State
missions. The report of the commit?
tee is as follows: . ,
"In Investigating the statement of
the State mission board for the year
Just passed your committoo, reports
that It finds no lack of wisdom In the
policy of the board nor' diligence or
self-sacrificing devotion on the' part
of its secretaries. The failure to meet
appropriations and pay off the In?
debtedness was due to the presenta?
tion of claims entirely unforseen and
vet Just nnd unavoidable.
"At this time we have been eon
fronted with a statement from "?!??
loved and honored secretary that age
and multitude of years will make It
Impossible for him to do In 1910 the
amount of work which he accomplish?
ed In the year Just closed and he asks
to be allowed to retire from the high
office he has held for twenty-four
years with such credit to himself, and
success to the denomination. While
we accept the wisdom of the sugges?
tion and believe that Dr. Bailey
should so shape his labor as to add
other years to his useful life, we sug?
gest that he retire only to be made
secretary emeritus for life with a sal?
ary competent to supply his wants;
that the selection of his successor be
left to the executive board, and that
he retain his position until the suc?
cessor be chosen. The committee
feels that it cannot too strongly ex?
press Its appreciation of the long life
and faithful labors of Its distinguish?
ed secretary, whose wise brain and
loving heart has nursed and nourlsh
I ed State mission work and seen it
grow under his watchful care to Its
present proportions. He is assured of
the grateful love of his brethren and
that he holds a place in the hearts of
I South Carolina Baptists that no one
I else can fill."

I on the part of the convention that

I of the convention pressed forward to
