Carolina ,ln session all this week al
Union. Synod has concluded ita delib
erations and udjotirncd yesterday and

Union tells of the last day's proceed
IngB of the body:
"At thlH morning's session of the
Presbyterian synod there was u lively
discussion over tho vote of a special
committee on education, which seekB
to provide for the Presbyterian Col
lege of South Carolina at Clinton In a
more liberal manner than heretofore
as that institution IH in need or such
assistance at the present time.
"It ls thought that synod will com
plote all official buBlnoas either thia
afternoon or early tonight, though on
account of discussions that may arise
this cannot be foretold.
"Tho synod this morning decided
that tho meeting next year will ho in
tho Oakland Avenue Presbyterian
church at Rock HUI. Rev. Alexander
Martin, pastor.
Last MK h t's Session.
The subject of home missions was
ably presented at last night's session
of tito Presbyterian synod which is
In session hero by Rev. J. B. Greene,
of Greenwood, and Rev. G. G. Mayes,
of Greenville, the synod evangelist.
"Rev. Mr. Greene declared that
America itsolf was the greatest mis
sion Hold in the wortd because of tho
many nationalities here, and the relig
ions they" ropresont, lt being stated
that in Now York alone thoro arc over
forty languages spoken. In the course
of hiB address Mr. roene pointed out
that.by influencing all immigrants ns
soon us they reach America and bring
them into the church of Christ that
hundreds of thousands on returning
to their nativo homes in a year or so
would thus, the gospel bo carried back
to their peoplo and In turn thoy would
bocome real missionaries.
Women In the Church.'
"At the afternoon session there was
a lively discussion as to tho part that
women should take in religious ser
vices whenever thoy are mixed as
nomblios, Rev. Geo. Blackburn of Co
lumbia advocating that they not ho al
lowed to,oven road verses of Scrip
tures ot take any part whatever in
religious meetings, whenever there
waa a man present, Rov. E. C. Halley
supporting Dr. Blackburn's position.
"Opposing this movement to have
synod commit itself against women
taking, part ecen in such minor part
as reading verses of Scripture were
many of the members of the synod
among ts?s Dr. Jas. O. Reavis o?
Columbia, who said that however, he
* was not in favor of women preaching
or holding official positions in the
- church, still from' experience which
he cited he showed the great value of
women co-operating in the young
people's societies and other organis
ations of the church work where there
?-crs nicu and women working togeth
er fer thc sdT?Ti?euient of me church.
"Dr. Reavls caused a linnie of
laughter to pass over the synod whoo
ho made the striking point that as the
women were In tho majority in all
. tho ?puren almost without exception.
. and as uhdor the church rule they
wnro allowed to vote for church offi
cials, it was really the women that
. pamed tho deacons, elders and the
pantprs themselves, and ha. laughingly
added.if tho churoh tried to limit

may bo no preacher. When put to a

ATLANTA, GA., Oct. 17.
Chic! of Police Beavers has
sprung a new sensation in the vice
crusade milich has culminated in
a grand jury investigation. The
chief declares that a certain up
town saloon just off Peachtree
street and one of the most popu
lar resorts in the city has a rear
entrance leading to a house on
Houston street which has been fit
ted np as a resort worthy of At
la's new banished restricted dis
trict. The chief declares that an
elaborate system of eleclric bells
and signals has been fitted up and
connected with the saloon which
so far has effectively prevented a
successful raid by the police.
The chief declares that some
time ago Mayor Woodward asked
him to "go easy" and not perse
cute the woman running the
boarding bouse at that number,
and who is going under an as
sumed name, while really she is
one of the most notorious of the
former characters of Manhattan
avenue, now cleaned by Chief
Beavers' order.
Mayor Woodward was called
before the grand Jury yesterday
to explain his charges that the po
lice were grafting and protecting
vice. The mayor said he did not
have any proof of graft, but had
merely been expressing his opin
ion. Il is not considered prob
able that any indictments will
grow out of the investigation,
though Foreman Woods White
says he intends going to the bot
tom of the situation.
The movements which has been
growing recently in Georgia, to
provide a system of free school
books for all pupils or at least a
low priced renting system, is like
ly greatly to increase the propor
tion of attendance, according to
?many experts, lt is also believed
?that the passage of child labor
laws will be followed by laws pro
viding compulsory education.
"The Cali cf tha South," the
bright Atlanta monthly edited and
published by Jonathan B. Frost
has a strong editorial this month
on compulsory education.
"There are only six States
which have no compulsory educa
tion law," writes Mr. Frost," and
they are all Southern-South
Carolina, Georgia, Alabama,
Florida, Mississippi and Texas.
These States are in the rear of the
procession as tu compulsory edu
cation. They are in the van of
the? procession of illiterate States.
"Compulsory education is only a
little way off in Georgia. One
could wish that parents could see
their duty so plainly that no law
requiring them to place their chil
dren in school might be necessary.
As a matter of fact fn?ny fathers
and mothers do not recognize their
paramount obligation in the pro
Winter received its regular of
ficial recognition in Atlanta jester
day, citizens "seeing their breath"
early in the frosty morning and
digging their overcoats out of the
cedar chests. Clothing dealers
filled their windows with heavy
garments and the Georgia rail
way and- Power Company turned
on the strap heat.
Atlanta has a centra! heating
system not enjoyed by many
Southern cities. Steam from the
big city plant of the electric com
pany is piped, all over the busi
ness section of the city and sup
plied to customers by motor, just
like gas or water. Comparative
ly few business houses bother with!
having their own furnaces, prefer
ing to purchase <*??am heat by the
pound. The turning of the cen
tral steam every.fali is consider
ed, official recognition of the ar
rival of cold weather.
. A farmer named Scruggs from
South Georgia report ; the killing
of a queer spotted snake as big
around as his leg and twenty-two
feet long. A rope, was thrown
around the reptile's neck and it
was choked to death. Norie of
the neighbors could tell what kind
of snake the monstor was but it
may have escaped from ? circus.

week. Mr. Graham was defend

sault and battery, in the court of
Judge Andy Calhoun, and Solid-j

I Mr. Graham had made his clo
I quent address in behalf of the
prisoner and then his partner, At
I torney Winchester, rose to add his
I eloquence to the defense. Mr.
I Winchester spoke at length, and a
I little bit more. Judge Calhoun
I retired to his private chambers and
J still the lawyers spoke. Finallyl
I Solicitor Arnold looked at his
I watch and remembered an engage -
j ment.
! "I've got to go," he said,
j "Some of you lawyers sum up foi
j me? Say, Graham, you do it."
I "Why, I'm for the defense,'
I said Graham.
I "That doesn't matter," return
jed Arnold. "Say something, any
J way."

Governor John M. Slaton
called for October 24, n
meetings in every county in Gt
gi a, at which business men
farmers are urged to organize
an effort to decrease the pro(
tion bf cotton and increase
production of foodstuffs.
In his proclamation Covet
Slaton reiterates his dispositioi
legislative action looking \o a
duction in cotton acreage, as
forth yesterday. In that t
sage to the people, the gove;

?tate to say that he believes the
Georgia fanner honest enough
and wise enough to curtail the
next cotton crop by voluntary
agreement. He docs not think it
wise or necessary to attempt to
coerce the farmer by hastily pass
ed laws, which after all are doubt
ful as io their constitutionality.
Governor Earl Brewer, of Missis
sippi, takes the same position and
will not cali? an extra session as
urged by many people.

The bottomless skirt is the lat

imagination can hardly do more.
Indeed, the new skirt leaves the
imiganizatiort nothing to do.
thc.bottomless skirt is caught
up in front and also behind, leav
ing the calves no protection fron?
weather and eyes except a little
at the sides. But a cape train falls
from the shoulders and drags
three feet on the ground, cutting
oft the view from behind. But of
course this is gathered up also for
street wear.
The cotton stocking movement
had a sudden decline when the
nev/ skirt arrived, for in dancing
the skirt and the train and most
everything is held well out of the
way of flying feet, and the danc
ers' calves are exposed nearly to
the knee. At least, that's what the
modiste says who introduced the
bottomless skirt as the newest
hint from Paris. Up to date none
of the society pages has announc
ed any sensation at a club dance.

Manifesto Issued by Leaders of Labor Pruty Declaring Sympathy
With Action of British Government in the Present War.
(Dy Associated Press.)
WASHINGTON, Oct. 16.-Dis

by leaders of the labor party declar
ing their sympathy with tho action of

The statement follows:
"Manifesto issued entitled, British
Labor. Movement and Wir, signed -by
labor members and leaders of labor
movement declared falso tho state
ments made in various countries re
garding the attitude of labor to war.
They always hoped for- peace, but
hope was destroyed by tho Kaiser. It
condemns Germany's wanton violution
of Belgium's neutrality and recogni/.os
that Britain after exhausting the re
sources of peaceful diplomacy was
bound in honor, as by treaty, to re
sist Germany's aggression. The vic
tory of Germany would mean the
death of democracy in Europe, conse
quently the labor party tuppcrta the
government. Until Germany is beaten
thecr can be no peace. 2
"The President of the local govern
ment board states that fears of wide

proved unfounded and with few ex
