The Scare convention of negro baptists
of South Carolina convened Wed- fl

the representatives from the negro V
Baptist churches and auxiliary bodies f
from every section of tf:e Siate, rep- .V
resenting an app-roximate membership
of 260,000. The efforts of the organi- W
zation are directed towards the fostering
of the causes of home and for- H
eign missions, education, temperance M
and Sunday schools* And while gath- fl
ering is not as largely attended as
it was last year, due undoubtedly to
the financial stringency, evidence is
by no means wanting that there will
be no abatement of interest and re- "
suit in any of these causes. fl

called to order at which time the inj
troductory sermon was preached by
the Rev. J. S. Daniels of Chester. ^
