Interesting Reports, Splendid Ad
dresses Were Heard By Crowd
Estimated At About 2,000
(Prom Thursday's Dally.)
No meeting of tho Suluda Baptist
Association has ever drawn better
crowds 'than those now attending the
convention which'is in session with
the First Baptist church of Iva. Tho
attendance for the first day was rather
disappointing, but it was estimated
that at least'2,000 people must have
been present yesterday when the noon
hour was reached.
The first event on yesterday's pro
gram was. tho roport on home mis
sions, which was made by J. M. Paget
of Anderson. lie stressed the fact
that the twenty-two millions of peo
ple in the south arc unchurched and
said that tho church must recognize
the great economic and political
changes in the south and adjust it
self to these changes? Following the
conclusion of Mr. Paget's report, the
following visitors were introduced to
the body and were warmly welcomed:
Dr. Ramsay-, president of Greenville
Female College, Dr. Z. T. Cody, editor
of the Baptist Courier and Rev. J. 3.
Hood, of the Associate Reformed Pres
byterian church.
Rev. Dr. V. I. Masters, then made
an excellent report of what he has
accomplished as editor of the "Home
Field" of Atlanta. According to his
report, 10 years ago southern Bap
tists gave $634.000 to missions. Now
they give $1,000^000 above that
amo'int; He "gave gratifying reports
in regard to church membership in
the south, saying that 40 per cent of
the Anglo-Saxon citizenship of the
south are Baptists. He deplored the
fact that 18,000 southern churches
have services only once a month.. He
said that an "absentee" pastor could
not 'supply tho spiritual lire for the
communily as it should be supplied.
Dr. Masters warned his hearers
against RusselllBm and paid bis re
spect to the Russell teaching in no
uncertain terms. lie said also that
Catholicism,* Spiritualism and'Chris
tian Science were all equally corrupt.
In closing Dr. Masters praised the
work now being done by the Baptist
training schools,'saying that there aro
34 snob schools In thfl south, with pu
pils numbering more than 6,000.
An able report on foreign mlsisons
was furnished-.by Rev! O; A: Waters,
of Pclaer. He says that better, equip
ment, & better .paraonagds, better
churches and better homes for the
missionaries are all needed in for
eign fields. He said that last year
South Carolina gave' to foreign, mis
sions more than her apportionment. .
Rov. W. S. Wllkins came next with
his report on the Layman'a work. He
said that tho laymen had paid-into
the treasury $25,000'-more, than. was
naked of thorn. He traced the pro
gress of missionary work from the
days of Judson, the pioneer and said
that the' Baptists of the country should
feel proud of what they -have done.
He begged that local congregations bo
not satisfied with meeting their ap
portionments for ..missions, but to do
oven more. .
Dr. Reeves of Honen Path read a
very Interesting report of what 1b be
ing accomplished by the - Woman's
Missionary Union of his town and of
the 'Sa hi da Association. He . pointed
to the fact that they had established
a scholarship" at Anderson College,
whlqh was won this year by a worthy
young lady of the Lebanon section,
Dr. Reeves suggested that the W. M.
u. Change the time of their meeting
so as 'to avoid conflict with th? com
mencement senson at the college.
Dr. O. L. Martin then presented a
very- conclusive address on the need
of conversion rather than emotion In
the unions.
J. M. Paget was naked to explain the
plan of Christian giving, as practiced
In the churches of Anderson. . Hu
said: that 20 per .cent of the member j
had adopted the weekly offering plan
and that 20 per cent .gave one-half tho
church's contribution to missions. Dr.
J. Ft Vines was on the program lot a
report but v/as taisent.
Dr. W1., T. Derieux of Greanville,
secretary of the state mission board,
said that he believed the Baptist
! church 'to be more thoroughly organ
ized than any other protestant dono
. minattcn. ' lC: - i
Dr. C. B. Hurts made si splendid JtM
port on b?haaf of. the. Baptists ot
Columbia and Impressed ht'a hearers
with his' words concerning the earn
estness of purpose of Columbia Bap
tlsts. ... _ . . '
. Rev; W^J.;NeJAon of Rock H?I said
that there is a crying heed of same
suitable place for th? Bant (et girls
attending Winthrop coUego, to wor
,' -ship end- said that some such-place
. should be supplied.^
Th? feature of the service last afght
, was the splendid sermon preached by
Rev; E. S. Reeves at the i^tfjrasfo
church of Iva. dV.' Reeves delivered
one of tho ablest efforts that tha <v*i
? vention naa y et enjoyed and there was
much food for thought furnished by
his discourse.
