WORKERS Large Gathering at the First Baptist Church. STRONGTALKS BY GOOD MEN Mr. Sullivan Told of die Great Convention in Sumter?Mr. R. S. Ligon Felt the Good It Will Do Anderson. There was a mass meeting at the First Baptist church Sunday night in the interests of the approaching Sunday school convention. This will bo the biggest proposition that Ander son has ever tackled, and as the time is close at hand, the meeting Sunday night was to get the people together, financially and in enthusiasm. The auditorium of the church was filled, all of tho other evangelical churches having closed for the occasion. Mr. It. S. LIgon, the Bible teacher, whose fame has goi.e all over the State, presided, and introduced as the first speaker Mr. G. Culicn Sullivan, vice president of the State associa tion and the representative, of Ander son, who extended the invitation to the State convention at. its meeting at Suinter. Mr. Sullivan made a ring ing speech, in which he told of the groat good that the convention would do Anderson?not as an advertise ment, but in the spirvitZl benefit that would result from tue gathering hero of so many Bible teachers and stu dents. There was a time, ho said, when Lycurgua was the type of the best that there was in mankind, and LycnrgUB was a teacher; The teacher is great, in his or her calling, and how much more so should be the teacher of the Bible! Value of Convention. At Sumter, said Mr. Sullivan, there were platform orators whom it would be worth while and the expense of crossing the State to hear. There was music that was as beautiful and much more to be appreciated than the great musicians Of the world. The mammoth parade in which church workers marched tinder Sunday school bancera was a tremendous and uplifting inspiration. It was in no way sensational, but was a common bcubo utilization of the mar Mai In every" great cause. If w? are soldiers in a great cause, why should'we not feel c pride in the cause, and why should we not march under Its banners as we would under tim ?on cur country.' Mr. Sullivan said that Andersen will never have entertained a conven tion that will do the city more, good. He said that one of the greatest things la the realization that sectar ianism Is not irr^rferlng with the de nominations In their great work. He described the way the convention was bandied in Sumter, from the work of, the scout boys in meeting the tra?na' and taking the visitors to their tem porary homes up to the concluding hours of a meeting which had thriBe? thousands .and bad promoted the cause of Christian effort as nothing had done. Rev. Dr: J. W Preake, who hsd at tended the convention at Spartanburg, was asked to tell of that great con vention. He said that he was in it and not on-the side looking on, and for that reason he could not describe much about it except that he had nev er known anything to benefit Spartan burg more. It was a tremendous tax on the homes of Spartanburg, and he knows that Anderson will handle it just as easily as Spartanburg did. Dr, Speake also spoke for a big parade of Sunday school pupils here. He said that it was better to bo in line currying a banner than on the curb looking on, and every'man had to ..be somewhere. And he didn't went it to look like Leo's army after the surrender, either in numbers or in any other way. He hoped that it would sot rain so that the visitors would not comment upon oar need of paved streets. In Spartanburg there were 1,200 in Une. How many will -there bo In Anderson? Significance of Parades. Mr. R. S. Llgnon spoke beautifully for a few momenta. He touched every heart in the -house' ^when he told of two parades that be had witnessed. The first was the first memorial-day parade at Old Pendleton. Lee's ,army had* .not long disbanded and the men wore at home, lame, bandaged, weak and Ul. The .little children, of whom he was one, went along happily and blithely, in the procession, proud to march in front of the old soldiers. When they came to the appointed place Die double ranks of children di vided and the old .soldiers marched through, the; little ones singing and scattering arbor vitate in the way. The).- happiness then was turned to toara and their sorrow for the old sol diers nu l tVc cause that they? had rep resented made an impression an his heart that nothing has evr erased. Just so it wiil be to maay young people of this'city to witness a great parade of Sunday school teachers and pupils. They will never forget it. Let the bends play and the banners fly and the parade march un. showing the love for the colors. "If religion means anything," said Mr,, I Agon, * It means everything. I have been engaged in business for the test 40 years, most of the Urne on the public square, and nothing has glori fied the name of this town so much as the religion of the Lord Jesus Christ, we want it to be said that this was ihe greatest Sunday school conven tion ever held in the State? sad we want Anderson to get her share of iL "It requires money *o hscdle this convention. Rock Hill and Greenville offered good money to take It there, and Anderson should see that the finances am forthcoming. Why, when the Chlquola Hotel was built it was regarded then aa such a beautiful thing that the people of Anderson in vited the president of the United States to come down here to see it, and Orovcr Cleveland responded tn a lengthy letter. The citizens raised 91.110 for that supper, and they have raised large sums for other enter tainments, and he knows that the money tar the convention and tue humes for the delegates will be forth coming." There were talks by inuuy preach ers present, who were called' upon, and a collection was taken, the amount contributed being over $260. This is about half of the amount needed.

NOT MANY ARE LEFT IN THE STATE PRISON Mr. Glenn, a Director, Talks of . Some Conditions in Connec tion With Penitentiary. W. Henry Glenn, member of the board of directors of the State peni tentiary, went to Columbia last night to attend a meeting ?f the board. Mr. Glenn was asked about the report' tht Governor Blease had said that he would leave nothing of the State prison hut the four walls and thti empty buildings. "I am sure that there is not much left now" .said Mr. Glenn. ."We cannot work the ?t?te farms with the women' and cripples we have left, and this in view .of the fact that the governor approved the contract we made with the chair fac tory. "Have you ever tocea to the State farm,'" he said la reply to Inquiry whit wculd is the sffsct of selling the farms. "Well. I will just say this, that no man in his right senses would take that farm off the b^nda of the State, to be worked with free labor. Half of the fertile lands, of the farm are protected by dikes. We have now insufficient labor to:.work them properly, and we are informed that the governor is trying to force the sale of the farms because the hoard purchased some land in Lex mH&h ceucty'Tor tt=? colored 2>oys' reformatory. And anybody who knows the land knows that it was a bargain and that it was needed to sustain the reformatory." GOV. BLEASE GIVES HIS RECORD Columbia. Feb. 2A~Goveroor Blesse in reference to the bill now pending before the bouse, and o wltich debate has b :en adjourned until Wednesday, in rofernece to the sale of. the State farms, said today: ".Yes, my reccrd as cited In my an nual message as Representative and Senator, has been ih favor ot the sale of tho State farina, and the placing it all convicts upon the public roads, and I am in hopes that the legislature will promptly paas this bill.However. I have a more Important reason for asking it than my opinion. I have aodpted a system which will soon of iis'jif do away with the State farms, that Is, as each county makes the ap plication and files proper affidavit that It properly able to handle its own convicts, I am commuting all rentences ot able-bodied male prison ers from the penitentiary to the coun ty chain gang. Within tho last few days sixty-four, have been returned, and I now have on hand three other counties' rpplications, which will be granted as soon as one or two little points which they have > mitted have been filled in. Consequently It will be seen.that the probabilities are that all convicts will be back in their re spective counties within the next thirty days or .sixty days. Then the state farms would be depleted, the land would be on han? with no one to cultivate it, and the mules and stock would be on hand with no one to use them; Of course, this can only be brought about by tho representa tives ot the counties themselves, who nre making requests ior tnese prison ers. "Therefore, J think it would be very wise for this General Assembly to provide for the sale ot the farms, and to do so now. They hove been pnt on notice. They cannot say that'they were taken br surerise. and if they find 'themselves feeding 75 or 100 head of stock through the summer; w?th ? few acres of land staudlng Idle, It will h? their fauR for not passing this bill. They are in session; they have three weeks more to go, and they hav*? certainly been given good and proper notice. "In my opinion the public roan are the place for the convicts, sad on the public roads they go. ' In addition to this, the sate ot these lands will relieve the financial situation of the state to some extent, lust at this time, and I really think, outside ot all otber consid?rations, in view of the large appropriations that will be asked for, that every W.
