Probably no minister who ever liv

deeper impress upon the public lifo of
that city than he. Dr. Jones took au
active Interest in thc affairs ot tho
city and from tho pulpit he dared to
apeak out against conditions aa he
found liiem after careful and pains
taking investigation. ;
Ho was loved, hated, feared, admir

hated and feared him. ThoBe who did

A few days ugo the county authori
ties decided to borrow $40,000 for the
schools of the county and asked thc
different banks of tho city to submit
bids for the loan. Last Monday rep
resentatives of thc different banks
met with the county oillciulB and sub
mitted their bids. One bank had
a bid of 4 1-2 per cent, two banks
had bids of 4 per cent, and Mr.
Brownlee of the Farmers & Mer
chants bank named a rate of 3 3-4 per
cent, which was accepted.
Tho notes wero executed and deliv
ered to Mr. Brownlee who forwarded
them to New York. He received a
telegram today that the notes had
been discounted and proceeds placed
to the credit of the Farmers & Mer
chants bank. Ho then placed thc pro
ceeds to the credit of Mr. G. N. C.
Boleman, county treasurer. This is
un exceedingly low rate of interest.
Of course, the local banks were not
lending their own money at these
rates, -but all of them took up the
matter with their Now York corres
pondents with tho result as stated.
It will -bo recalled that the Farm
ers &- .Merchants bank > secured the
highest bid for the paving ' bonds
sold awhile back, and a short time
beforo that the city invited bids
from tho local banks for S45.000.00
loan and the Farmers & Merchants
bank submitted a lowest bid na that.
This rate ot 3 3-4 por cent for thc
county, is tho lowest rato any bank

In Letter to Greenville l'nper Depre
cates Attack Upon lite Catholic
Father E. A. Duff, of Greenville
who is well known in Anderson, has
written to tho Greenville Piedmont
a letter in which ho deprecates an
attack which was made on the Cath
olic church by Carlyle lt. Hayes, who
spoke in Greenville. The Intelligen
cer has been requested to reprint the
letter written by Father Duff. It is
as follows: f I! . !
Editor Piedmont? I? noticed 1n jour
paper of yesterday a summary of a
lecture delivered by* . Carlylo li.
Haynes, In which hqj refers very, un
graciously to some Gatuolic belief and
practice. Tho account of the lecture
as printed in your paper, 1 understand
moreover, ls mild indeed alongside tin?1
lecture Itself, vyhiclnJrom beginning
to end was an unwarranted and Un
called for attack on) the, belief and
practice? of tho Catholic church.
In the name of common decency,
I ask, why is such a man permitted
night after nig .1 to attack and hold
up to ridiculo fae beliefs and prac
tices which are so sacred to those who
-;old them? In reading the announce
ment ot tho Bible lectures, I under
stood that tite purpose of the lecturer
was to encourage Hiblo reading, by
explaining and bringing out the beau
ty and charm of tao sacred text. Bul
lo and behold from the very start
thc purpose of tho lecturer seems to
be a sweeping and .uncompromising
attack cn the Catholic church..
Now, Mr. Lecturer, you may think
that you arc doing God's work, when
In your unbounded eloquence and ora
tory you attach the sacred things of
another Chu) ch. But In my bumble
opinion you ure simply spreading dis
cord and contempt and hatred when
you caricature the Catholic church and
her members as you do.
You are openly issulti?K a portion
ot this community, who hold and prac
tice the Catholic faith. You show
absolutely no regard for their feel
There ls surely a large work for
yon to do In your present field of ac
tion. The Bible itself, should demand
your whole time and attention. It is
highly and intensely interesting from
cover to cover. There hi really no
need to resort to the old and worn-out
met1 od of attacking the Catholic
church on the score that you do not
understand the reasons for many of
her beliefs and practices.
If you read the Bible attentively
you will find in it thc one great mes
sage chat-God lovos man. You will
find, 'Moreover, that God wishes love
to exist among men, as tho foundation
of their relations one with another.
Preach this doctrino, and your work
will show rei' lits. .
Don't hold up to ridicule the things
that others hold sacred. Yon may not
understand some of the beliefs and
practice of Catholics, put In your
charity give Catholics .the honor and
credit ot following their lights.
Why, therefore, go to so much trou
ble and expenso to expose Catholic
teaching. H ls a waste of time, if
good is the end in dow.
Catholic faith aid practice bi as
old as Christianity itself. They aro
fixed and steadfast and like their Au

The Catholic church ia trying to es
tablish the Kingdom of God In the
hearts of men. Her work from the
beginning or the Cbritsaln era ls one

the mission entrusted to her.
