Atlanta. Ga., May 20.—A committee
from the locked out operatives of cotton
mills In South Carolina, who came to Au
gusta to confer with the mill owners
and striking employes, announce today
that in their opinion the King mill men,
who struck and brought on the lockout,
were not Justified In their action. The
South Carolina men tried for some time
to Induce the King men to return to
work, but the latter refused, saying the
Interference of the locked out operatives
was an Impertinence.
Considerable suffering Is reported In
South Carolina among the locked out
men as they are given no relief by the
textile union.
National Director Hibbert, who left Au
gusta several weeks ago, saying he would
be gone four days, has not yet returned.
The rations issued by the strikers' com
missary are said to be growing smaller
every day. and it Is alleged that no money
has been disbursed as promised. Ten
thousand people are out of work.

Presbyterians Say They Do Not

j
THE CREED IS SO AMENDED
Change Is Made to Correct Impression
Prevailing That the Presbyterian
Church Believes Some In
fants Are Lost.
#
Jackson, Miss.. May 20.-The fifth day
of the general assembly was marked by
the largest attendance of the meeting.
Infant salvation was the subject of
an important report by the overtures
oommlttee. They repotted eleven over
tures on Infant salvation demanding a
positive statement db to the certainty of
salvation as to all Infants dying in in
fancy and calling for a declartlon which
will clear the church of false charge that
It holds that some Infants may be lost.
The following substitute to Section 1
of the report was offered by Dr. Hemphill
and adopted by the assembly:
"In answer to an overture asking for
the rescinding of the action, in whole or
In part of the last general assembly at
Little Rock, concerning chapter 10, sec
tion 3 of the confession of faith, the as
sembly does hereby rescind the fifth rea
son of the last assembly for declining
to amend confession."
infants Arc Not uamnco.
The reasort of the rescinding being as
follows:
"Because while we have a well ground
ed hope, founded on scripture that all
Infants dying In Infancy are saved, yet
the confession of faith goes as far as
scriptures to Justify a positive statement
upon this point.”
The second section of the report which
was unanimously adopted, reads:
'^hls assembly is fully persuaded that
the language employed in Bectlon three
of our confession of faith towards in
fants dying in infancy, does not teach
that there are any infants dying in in
fancy who are damned, but this section
only is intended to illustrate that those
who died in infancy are saved through
the ministry oT the world. Futhermore,
we are persuaded that the holy scrip
tures, when fairly interpreted, amply
warrant us in believing that all infants
who die in infancy are Included In the
election of grace and are regenerated
and saved by Christ through the spirit.”
Want Famous Hymn Changed.
An overture was llled with the commit
tee on overtures from the BoonevlUe,
Miss., Presbytery demanding that the
hymn beginning "There is a Fountain
Filled with Blood," be eliminated from
the Presbyterian hymn book—or else the
lines reading "and sinners plunged be
neath that flood, lose all their guilty
stain,” be changed.
The overtures sets forth that this sen
tence is an exaggeration of truth in repre
senting that the blood of Christ ever
flowed In such quantities in which one
could be immersed.
The committee recommended the grant
ing of the overture of the synods and
Presbyteries of Arkansas and Memphis,
whicTi asked that that portion of the
Memphis Presbytery on the west side of
the Mississippi river, be transferred to
the Arkansas Presbytery.
ROOSEVELT SPEAKS
ON HOME MISSIONS.
New York, May 20.—Carnegie Hall was
crowded to. the doors this evening with
an audience eager to hear the address of
President Roosevelt in the interests of
Presbyterian home missions, the occasion
marking the close of the centennial cele
bration.
When President Roosevelt took his seat
on the platform he received a great
ovation. In introducing the President
the Rev. D. Stuart Dodge, D. D., who pre
sided, reviewed the bright prospects of the
church which he said, "is about to re
ceive a creed that plain people can under
stand and accept.”
When President Roosevelt stepped to
the front of the platform and began
"Mr. Chairman" he was interrupted by
the flashlight of a photographer. As the
smoke blew across the stage he laughed
and said: "There goes the mystery now,” ‘
referring to the mystery of the creed.
The President said:
"It Is a pleasure, on behalf of the peo
ple of the United States, to bid you wel
come on this hundredth anniversary of
the beginning cf organized home mission
ary work by the Presbyterian church. In
one sense, of course, all fervent and
earnest church work Is a part of home
missionary work. Every earnest and
zealous believer, every man or woman
who Is a doer of the world and not a
hearer only Is a life-long missionary In
his or her field of labor—a missionary by
precept, and by what Is a thousand-fold
mere than precept, by practice.”
But tonight we celebrate a hundred
years of missionary work done not In
cidentally but with set purposes; a hun
dred years of earnest effort to spread
abroad the gospel to lay deep th4 moral
foundation upon which true national
greatness must rest. The century that
has closed has seen the conquest of
this continent by our people. To conquer
a continent Is rough work. All really
great work Is rough in the doing, though
It may seem smooth enough to those
who look back upon It, or who gaze up
on It afar.
Thoroughness Is an unavoidable part of
the doing of the deed. Without it the con
quest of this continent would have had
little but an animal side. Without It
the pioneer's fierce and rude virtues and
somber faults would have been left unlit
by the flame of pure and loving aspira
tion. Without that the life of this coun
try would have been a life of inconceiv
ably hard and barren materialism.
Dr. VanDyke responded to the Presi
dent’s speech.
Speaking of Cuba tne President said;
"We have the right to feel proud that
we have kept every pledge to the letter
and established a new national prece
dent. I don't remember another such
case—and I have looked for one with
care—a case whereas the result of such
a war the victorious nation has content
ed itself by starting a new nation, free
on the difficult path of self-government
“I some times hear the armv attacked
and I have even heard missionaries at
tacked. Still, when great work Is to be
done in peace or war, It is good to have
the army to depend on.”
After the speech of the moderator, Pres
ident Roosevelt remained long enough to
listen to the singing of a synodical quar
tette from Tennessee.
Man Created Sensation.
Baltimore, May 20,-While the President
was en route from this city to New York
.1 sensation was created in the car ahead
of the President's car by a well-dressed
young man about 30 years of age leap
ing from his seat. He gave a yell and
then fell in a fit. His actions star
tied the occupants of the car, among
whom werj Senator Pritchard. Several
secret service men, were on hand, but
they soon became satisfied that the man
was harmless.
Accidentally Left Opening in
Mine Which Contained Gas
82 BODIES ARE RECOVtRED
One Man Taken Out Alive, But His
Body Is So Horribly Mangled
That He Cannot Possibly
\ Live.
I
Knoxville, Tenn., May 20.—Up to mid
night 82 bodies had been taken from
Fraterville mine at Coal Creek, the
scene of yesterday’s catastrophe In
which the lives of 225 miners were blot
ted out. Ernest McDonald was taken
out alive at a late hour. He had fallen
fhto & sprll\g of water and was complet
ly covered by water except half his
face when found. He had entered the
mine 15 minutes after the other men and
his story of the explosion was told while ,
his breath came In fitful gasps. It Is Im
possible for him to live more than a
few hours, for he Is horribly mangled.
Both arms w*ere twisted from his should
ers, both eyes blown out and both thighs
broken.
The coroner s Inquest, wmcn was con
vened today In the opera house examined
a number of witnesses but did not com
plete Its work.
Fresh crew* of rescuers went to work
tonight and will toll on unceasingly un
less another explosion of firedamp, which
Is feared, occurs. The cause of the dis
aster Vitveleped today when It became
knowfii that gas had collected In an
abandoned mine, close by, Into which
an opening had been accidentally made
last week by a boy working In a lateral.
An attempt was made to stop up the
opening but It Is believed that a leak
remained.
Wm. Morgan, aged 60, a survivor of
the disaster Is still alive, though It Is
not thought he can live long. His Is the
only statement to be had from any one
In the mine at the time of the explosion.
Survivor Tells Experience,
He said:
"I was near the mouth and felt the
earth jerk under my feet. The noise was
muffled and I knew what it meant, as
I have been In three mine explosions.
That Is the last I know. That seemingly
short Jerk shut out my senses. I know
ail the men are dead for I am nearly
gone. I hope the good people will pray
for us all.”
The postures in which the dead bodies
are found Indicate that a terrible concus
sion occurred simultaneously with the
explosion.
State Mine Inspector R. A. Shiflett ar
rived this morning from Nashville. He
has gone Into Fraterville, mine, to ascer
tain if possible the cause for the disas
ter.
Officials of the United Mine Workers of
America arrived this morning to make an
investigation In behalf of the organiza
tion.
As to his theory of the explosion Pres
ident J. W. Howe said:
"I think that an old abandoned mine
of the Knoxville Iron Company had been
cut into from the Fratervlll mine and
as It had not been worked since Friday,
gas had accumulated In It. When the
men went to work Monday the explosion
occurred. The law requires that air
pipes carrying air from the mouth have
opening into the mines every 90 feet.
This was not the case In the mine and
probably caused the explosion.”

MIH HIS HELPED
THE GULF SHIES
Continued Dry Weather Has
Hurt the Ohio Valley
CORN PLANTING FAVORABLE
Cotton Crop Is In Promising Condition
Generally Throughout the Cotton
Belt—Good Stands of Early
Cotton Are Reported.
Washington. May 20.—The weather bu
reau’s weekly summary of crop condi
tions Is as follows:
The drouth condition which prevailed
last week In the gulf states. Atlantic val
ley has been largely relieved, except In
southern Florida, but the continued dry
weather In the Ohio valley and middle
Atlantic states has proved unfavorable.
Corn planting had favorable progress In
the central valleys except In Iowa. The
early planted is growing vigorously in
Oklahoma, Kansas, Missouri and Neb
raska and Is In fine condition In Texas
where a considerable portion of the crop
Is made.
Winter wheat has experienced no ma
terial Improvements In the states of the
Ohio valley, deteriorating weather being
report?d in some districts and a slight
advance In others. In Missouri the crop
continues In exceptionally promising con
dition, although some lodging Is report
ed and further Improvement In Nebraska
and Arkansas and more favorable con
ditions In northern Kansas are Indicated.
The crop has made vigorous growth In
Oklahoma and harvesting with light
yieldB progressing in Texas.
The outcrop is much in need of rain in
the Ohio valley and the reports from the
Gulf states are generally unfavorable.
The cotton crop Is In promising condition
generally throughout the cotton belt.
Good stands of early cotton and satisfac
tory germination of the late planted are
Indicated, except In portions of the Caro
llnas and Louisiana, with clean fields and
healthy growth in practically all sec
tions. In Southern Texas the crop has
made rapid advancement and squares are
forming.
The stands of tobacco In the Carolines
and Virginia are Irregular. But little
transplanting has been done In Mary lard,
owing to cool weather, and none has as
yet been set In Kentucky where this work
promises to be general thfs week. The
plant beds in Ohio are suffering for rain.
The fruit outlook Is less favorable.
MURDER MYSTERY SOLVED.
On Deathbed Man Confessed the Crime
to His Friend.
Anniston, May 20.—(Special.)—T*.ie mys
tery which has for ten years surrounded
the killing of Detective Wess Harrison,
whose body was found about ten years
ago in an outhouse in West Anniston,
seems to be cleared up by a statement
said to have been made to parties here
several days ago by E. R. Powell, for
merly of Oxford and Anniston but who Is
now in Birmingham. Mr. Powell was in j
the city about a week ago and is reported
to have told practically the following
story to two gentlemen here:
Pink Evett, who ten years ago con
ducted a barroom on Tenth street, con
fessed to Powell on his deathbed that he
killed Harrison. Evett died about six
years ago. Just before he died he called
to his bedside E. H. Powell, his brother
in-law, and stated to him that he did the
killing. Powell has kept the secret, and
not until a few days ago did any one
here know who killed the detective. Ac
cording to statements made by those to
whom Powell told the story, Evett and
a man named Knight, who died about
two years ago, were walking along the
tracks of the old G. P. Railroad towards
West Anniston to see a daughter of
Knight's. Detective Harrison was walk
ing in front of the two men. For some
cause not learned Evett stepped between
two cars, secured a coupling pin and at
tacked Harrison, killing him. The body
was taken by the two men to an out
house, where it was afterwards found.
Mr. Mike Fox of this city was later ar
rested, charged with the crime, but was
acquitted.
It is said Powell’s conscience has hurt
him for not telling the secret, and that
he Intends to make a statement in ac
cordance with the above.
