He had no quarrel with the rail- , road, he suld. but the fact remained that frequently the railroad does :iot run to the farmer nnd the country goes to waste for the lack of road? and watercourses. To remedy this condition, and to provide cheap trans? portation to convenient shipping points. better country roads are needed. Address liy Secretary Wilson. The principal speaker of the after- I noon session. Secretary of Agriculture!

Ad rises Aaainm Federal Aid. That no aid in the construction of highways should be asked of the Fed eral government, was the advise of k Walter >L Page, editor of the World s I Work. New Tork, who Bpoko after Mr. Du Tont. He told the delegates of the wonderful things that better roads have accomplished In Moore county, North Carolins^ In which IMnchurst Is located, and the big things accomplish? ed by them In Mecklenburg county, ol . which Charlotte Is the b asy metropolis. 1 While he was In entire sympathy with . tho work, he thought tho movement bus passed the period when It needed government aid, and advised the asso elation to build tho n-jecssary roads through Its own efforts, and at the same time build up self-reliance and good men. which, after nil. are the greatest things to be desired. "As an economist," he said. "1 should like to see you hesitate a long time before asking an appropriation for this pur? pose from the government." "Put Into every school room some-' body?an expert preferably?that will ; teach every boy the value of a good j road und how to make It." ho advised, "teach the American people your croed; ?begin with the kid. ' Swanson for Appropriation. i Taking an entirely opposite view. Senator Claude E. Swanson, whose ad dress completed the speaking program of the day, advocated un annual ap? propriation by the government tor tne purpose of highway Improvement, and pledged himself to do all In his power to secure it. While the government pays t.nnually $61,000,000 to the roll roads for currying tho mails, nut a cent goes to the fanners for the mil? lion units ol country roads cunetriut ed at the expense of the local com? munities, and freely used by the Post Office Department in the transportation of mall over rural free delivery and star routes. Since most of the highways of tjio country ar? used by national. State and local interests, the Senator urged that it is only fair that the national, State and local treasuries all co-epcrute In their construction. Sir. Swanson's contentions were greeted with hearty applause by the delegutes, who dem? onstrated clearly the strong favor with which the convention views the proposition to invoke government aid In highway construction. Delegates llutertnlued. A brilliant entertainment Wat ten? dered the good roads delegates and those accompanying them In the Jener son Hotel auditorium last ntght by the city of Richmond and the Chambei of Commerce.

BAPTISTS DECLARE FOR STATE-WIDE Drastic Temperance Resolution Adopted by Virginia Association. ENABLING ACT PROBABLE Report Creates Great Enthusiasm Among Delegates?Final Session Held. 1 Special to The Tlmes-l'ispatcb. 1 Norfolk) Va., November 20 ?Begin* run,; |n the language of the preamble of the Declaration of Independence, the report on temperance udopted this morning by tho Baptist General As bociullon of Virginia declares .for state-wide prohibition, and declares war to the liiilsh ugulns-t the liquor traffic. It Is tho most drastic tem perance resolution ever adopted by the denomination. Rev. W. F. Dunaway, D. D., declared it lo be the beginning of the Initiative and referendum, and committing the li.iptists lo that policy. He voted lor the adoption of tho reso? lution, however. Ilnthusiasin was ko great that two or thr< e times the audience broke out with applause, causing sharp rapa of the gavel by Moderator Pitcher; ami the caustic remark that the time had not yet come when the Virginia liap tlet Association '.ould tolerate ap? plause. The report says that after ten years of activity on the part of the Anil Saloon League, a Legislature has been elected which will in all probability enact an enabling law giving tho peo? ple of the Slate the right to vote on the question of prohibition. Another clause demands that here? after the sale of liquor be prohibited at agricultural fairs. Rev. K. J. Richardson discussed the re).ort. It was during his speech, when he declared that Ihe cause of tem? perance would prevail when tho church people stood ns tlrmly for tem? perance as the liquor men str.nd for the saloons, that the first outburst of applause occurred. Warning by Richardson. Mr. Richardson gave wurnlng?em? phasizing that he was mak't:g no threat?that there is a smoul dcrlng volcano In Virginia politics which would erupt If there Is any monkeying with the lent;.erar.ee question. It does not take a prophet to ioretell what will be the result, lie said. "We want an enabling act with no strings tied to it." he declared. Mr. Richardson emphasized that port oi the report w hich says that through the Influence of liquor politicians negroes are being registered for the elections in violation of law and against the policy of white supremacy. At the conclusion of his address, five minutes were ullotted to Rev. Chas K. Morris, pastor ot Bank Street colored iiaptlsi Church, of this city Morris said that there are 50.00* negrc ? r. :n Virginia who could in depended upon to line up with the temperance forces. He su'd that 104 young men went Into court and du manded relief of three saloons within a Stone's throw of his parsonage. Ha said the court refused to grant 11- ! censes to one man, but dtd grant the ! license to his father-in-law, and ac- j C( pied the objectionable man as bondsman. He made an appeal to the white peo- I pie to help save the army of 2,Out).010 I colored people who are marching tc I their ruin by the saloon route. Morris was applauded when he fin? ished his talk, and as he started to leave the church a score or more min-j Isters rushed to snake his hand and point him to a seat among iho dele- j gates. A sensation was sprung during the. temperance meeting whe-n twenty-, three yards of liquor advertisements, from one issue of a Richmond Sunday; paper were stretched through the| church where the convention Is being, held. ? A social service commission was named to deal with and report on the divorce and temperance evils. A committee was appointed to raise 17,500 for Virginia toward the Euro? pean HaptiHt Seminary. A Unfit tvas made to have the annual convention held on such dates as would eliminate Sunday, but this failed. Home '11 ?al The afternoon session was devoted to home missions, the discussion b'.lng by Rev. J \V.

An interesting review of tho work of the board since Its organization 1" 1S30 Is given, from which It la scon that the board has uided over 700 young men.

Thoy .-up ? ply 3.'.0 of the 1,063 Baptist churches In Virginia. "It should always be a pleasure to the Baptists of Virginia le> recall the fact that Richmond College was the outgrowth of the desire on the part of tho early Baptists of the State tc provide an Institution of learning for the training of the young men in our Churches, who are called to preach the gospel, and at tho same time, give to all young men, whether students of the ministry or not, a college which has taken ltd place in the front ranks of the best Institutions of learning 111 the country. "Friends of higher education should never forget their Indebtedness to tho evangelical denominations of this country, who, In their desire to fur? nish better opportunities for the propor training of their young men for the ministry, have given to the world in? stitutions of learning where young men and young women enjoy oppor? tunities for the broadest culture which would not now be possessed by them In such abundant measure, but for these denominational colleges and uni? versities. One hundred and four of the first 109 colleges established In j America had distinctive Christian orl- j gin. Their founders Intended that they should be in some sense cccleelastlcul as well as religious, and while they were denominational they set up no religious left for entrance. The Chris? tian churches have been not only the pioneers of education, but their fol- . lowers recognize, as never before, the . power and efficiency of the Christian college to forward the Kingdom of elod on earth.
