Pro Question Cut Out.
Reference to the prohibition question
was laid on the table when the resolu

resulted. A majority report declared
prohibition not a subject for legislation
by the State Federation and was signed

prohibition.” Both resolutions were
tabled after a close contest.

A resolution was adopted declaring
for a compulsory education law. Origin

rich men’s sons and daughters, but
later it was rewritten so as to take out
the sting.

Resolutions were adopted declaring

TEXAS MAN NAMED
FOR VICE PRESIDENT
Associated Press.
Louisville, Ky., May 14.—The offi
cers having been elected and the order
of business adopted without demur, the
Southern Baptist convention in pro
gress in Louisville is prepared for a
decisive action on the business to come
before it during the three days remain
ing before adjournment. With the ex
ception of the Woman *s Missionary
union, all auxiliary bodies of the con
vention had finished their labors when
President Joshua Levering called the
convention to order last night. Im
portant among these achievements was
that of the Laymen’s Missionary move
ment, which declaring it took eash to
spread the gospel, pledged the following
sums to the movement in a few min
utes: Alabama, $1500; Mississippi,
$500; Kentucky, $500; Georgia, $500;
South Carolina, $250; Louisiana, $250;
Virginia, $250; Oklahoma, $250, and
North Carolina, $250. T. G. Russ, of
Birmingham, declared he stood sponsor
for what Alabama would do and the
others voiced the loyalty of their states
in order.
The work cut out for today is im
portant. At one of its three sessions
the convention will make nominations
to fill seven vacancies on the board of
trustees of the Southern Baptist Theo
logical seminary. It must hear and
adopt the reports of B. D. Grav and R.
N. Williams for home and foreign mis
sion boards, respectively. It must vote
on whether it will carry the mission
flag into New Mexico as requested by
the American Baptist society. It must ’
appoint a committee to recommend one '
of several cities making a desperate [
fight for the next convention. With ।
the chances about in the order follow
ing: Baltimore, St. Joseph, Mo., Mem
phis and Asheville, N. C. The conven- i
tion will also discuss the work of the
Bible school board located at Nash
ville and at the night session will con
clude with a mass meeting in the in
terest of foreign missions. Much money
will probebly go forward to the various
causes espoused by the convention be
fore the day is out.
A reverent stillness crept among all
delegates last night when the former
“Demosthenes of the Baptistry,” Dr.
Hawthorne, of Richmond, Va., nominat
ed B. F. Reilly, of Texas, for vice presi
dent. Leaning upon a crutch and with
shreds of voice that once stirred the
south to its heart’s core, Dr. Haw
thorne admitted hie days of swaying
the thousands were ended.
