union. The invocation was asked by
the Rt. Rev. William A. Guerry, D.
X>., bishop of the diocese of South
Carolina.
The hall was elaborately decorated
with numerous flags, buntings and
ferns. The" appearance was distinctly
a patriotic one. A number of distinguished
visitors were in the au
IP? t dience. . i
The entrance of the speakers was
marked by the playing of patriotic select
ionsxby Metz's Military band. Im- .7.
mediately after the convention had
.been called to order by Senator
Fletcher thelnvocation was asked by
Bishop Guerry. J
A chorus of more than a hundred |
.:i voices, under the direction of Miss J
||v Isabelle Hyams, sang "The Song of j
Victory." The accompaniment was J
played by Metz's band. This was one
ot the features of the session and the 1
splendid performance of the chorus ]
|||$ \ was greeted with prolonged applause, j
The singers were on the stage in the j
tear of the hall. . t
Secretary McAdoo, the last speaker,
was of the impression that he was f
s||fe .< to appear in the afternoon and was a 1
little late in arriving. He and Mrs. *
&, McAdoo, who accompanied him, re- *
ceived a cordial welcome when they J
Wpgv- entered tne naii.
Mr. R. G. Rhett, president of the {
Egl^ Charleston Chamber of Commerce, <
' and Dr. Clarence J. Owens, managing \
pfcy.* ; director of the Southern Commercial J
p%", congress, did not speak yesterday, i
Mr. Rhett had waited for Secretary J
PffY.. McAdoo. Dr. Owens will probably *
Blfe''.- deliver his address on "The Southern ]
Commercial Congress?a Militant
HEp;*-.'-:, < Force," at one of the other sessions.
E5:.- Secretary and Mrs. McAdoo lunched -?
with Mr. and Mrs. Rhett and were
entertained by them. The secretary
' and his wife returned to Washington
last night.
It was stressed by Senator Fletcher
and Dr. Owens that all sessions ^
of the congress are open to the pub- <
lie. The addresses are of a practical
nature and much good, it is believed, ( g
Hill be derived from them. I |

I V SPEAKS OP FORD'S PARTY.

Duty to See They Enjoy Trip.
Edinburgh, Dec. 11.?"At this moment
there is coming over a vessel
fraught with peace," said the Earl of.
Rosebery in a speech here tonight.
"Tfc is nronpll^d aDnarentlv by a
% gentleman named Ford, who makes,
g : . I think, perambulators. He is coming
over to pour oil on troubled waters
at the inspiration of a Dr. Aked,
of whom we know something here,
g and who by voice more potent than
that of any to call the soldiers ff-om
the trenches mortal heard in this
igg world is going and bid the waves be
still.
The expedition will fail, but that
the eighty passengers receiving free
passages may enjoy themselves and
do no mischief is our earnest solicitation."

The Late Shopper is a cheerful j

just a habit. ' It is to be feared t

put off giving himself a drink.

ist- How fortunate it is that Santa Claus ,
>ed, was not born a late shopper. He is
the always on the job, and gets ready'
ind for. the holiday season months ahead,'
md we are reliably informed by the nurs1
a ery books. However, Santa Claus is
in constant danger of losing his repui
to tation. There are hundreds of fond
:es, Fathers who pose as Santa Claus to
be- their little broods, Papas who sally
ith forth to collect a bagful of toys just j
of when the stores are closing on Christfea
mas eve, and the holly garlandb are
being taken down, and the manager
g;iv- ot the dress goods department is getits
ting ready to announce, "Spring and
for Summer Styles." j
dly The Late Shoppers we have always
>w" ..with us. As eleventh-hour athletes,
; is they take all the running, jumping
hat and line-plunging honors. But often
uld the Late Shopper has one good mark
to his -credit. He puts off giving at
lan- all times, and therefore puts off giv
ters ing a piece of his mind to his wife.
