The session of Conference yester
day was taken up with the consid
eration of the Columbia Female
College question. The story of the
debate is told in another column.
The discussion was animated,
but in the best of spirit and feeling
throughout. Every speaker seemed
to place the interests of the college
above every other consideration.
This is as it should have been. The
vote on the question of removal was
closer than we thought it would
have been, but the friends of Lau
rens and Greenwood, after the de
cision went against them by the
declaration to remain in Columbia,
acted broadly and moved to make
the vote unanimous, which was
The Conference acted wisely in
deciding to leave the college in
Columbia. There are many advan
tages in Columbia for a school of
this kind which could not have
been enjoyed at any other place in
the South.
In addition to this Columbia is
growing very rapidly, and we be
lieve there is no city in the South
with as bright future before it as
Columbia. We believe there is no
other place where the college will
do as well as in Columbia. That
is the way it looks to us, and we
have no personal interest in it one
way or the other.
The Methodists and the people
of Columbia will have to show their
appreciation of the act of Confer
ence by rallying to the support of
the institution as they have never
done before, and then the rest of
the State will fall in line and an
era of prosperity will dawn upon
the college such as it has never
known. New and additional build
ings are needed, and there should
be more ground, and this we have
no doubt can be easily obtained.
It is a great pity that when our
electric light plant was put in we
did not contemplate the growth
and development of the town.
-~/ The town has grown and now the
-plant is overloaded, and yet there
are sections of the town that have
no lights at all.
In West End there is urgent
need of some lights and we hear
complaints from Brooklyn in re
gard to the poor lights in that part
of the city.
Something will have to be done.
Either we will have to enlarge the
-plant so as to-light the city as it
should be, or we will have to put
up some oil lamps. There should
also be more light around both de
pots. There are night trains com
ing in now from which we get
many passengers.
- '- Then the incandescent plant is
overloaded too. Something will
have to be dome. We understand
that about a year ago there was a
proposition by which we could ex
change our dynamos for larger ones
without so great an outlay. Why
not do it? We need more light in
some sections of the city.
The Newberry Herald and New
is being issued daily during the
sessions of the Methodist Confer
ence this week. Newberry ougbt
to have a daily paper all the time.
-Spartanburg Journal.
The Newberry Herald and News
is issuing a daily edition during
the session of the South Carolina
Conference. The Daily Herald
and News is so bright and reada
ble that we wish it would become
a permanent fixture -Anderson
Daily Mail.
These brethren are. very kind in
their comments ann xt is some com
pensation for the labor we are giv
ing the Methodists. It is a pleas
ure to us to 4o the work and we
believe the effort is appreciated by
the Conference.
We would like to have a daily
in Newberry and if the merchants
would give us the advertising pat
ronage we would have one. But
do you know we have some large
merchants in Newberry who never
advertise and so far as they are
concerned the town could go with
out any paper at all. We have
some live and progressivi mer
chants. At a nominal rate we got
the ad. which are in the Daily we
are now issuing and yet some of
the merchants even refused to give
any business to this enterprise.
The you know that we get the
Columbia and Charleston papers
at 8:4o in the morning and a daily
here would have to be almost en
tirely local.
We admire the pluck and enter
prise of the citizens of Greenwood
and Laurens in their efforts to se
cure the location of the Columbia
Female College in their midst.
They made a good fight and if the
Conference had decided to move
one or the other of these towns
would have secured the prize. The
effort will do these towns good It
has brought the business men to
gether with a single purpose and
that purpose the good ofthe whole
community without the direct ben
efit to any individual.Efforts which
do that cannot help but be bene
ficial to the community.
We wish we could get
some enterprise up in New
berry which had for its pur
pose the general welfare and could
then get our people aroused. We
want to get rid of some of the
business as well as the personal
selfishness of the community.
We wonder if any body in town
is kicking about the carnival we
are to have and throwing cold
water on it. As we are to hive it
every merchant and business man
and every other citizen should put
his shoulder to the wheel to make
it a success. Will they do it? We
hope so.

Thank you. We can't continue
because the Conference doesn't con
tinue and for the additional reason
that it doesn't pay.

ing of the above attraction the
management says:
In Miss Wilson we secure not
merely a remarkably successful and
strikingly original artist, whio has
ever traveled away from the beaten
paths of entertainment, but a
breezy little woman, full of sparkle,
business, and ideas, as clever a
writer as she is an artist, being au
thor of almost all the material used
n her programs, and an educated
ittle woman as well,,being a Uni
versity graduate and Master of.
Arts, and thus bringing to her
work a cultivated mentality and
the highest moral purposes.
In Mr. Frye we have an "artist
born, not made," a keen and sym
pathetic student of human nature,
marvelous mimic, and a Master
n Dialects. Before the public, as
in private life, one of those quaint,
odest, magnetic, charming per
>onalities one always admires and
ever forgets. Had his lines been

the Church, the result of the en
largement of character and sympa
thy, growing out of the fact that
there has been greater training, and
out of the further fact that this
training begins at the cradle time,
enabling men to give all the years
of their life in intelligent service.
It was out of this thought that the
Epworth League grew. By some
it was called a fad of the last cen
tury. Some who thought that the
plans of the fathers, preaching
twice on the Sabbath and holding
forth once upon the week in prayer
meeting, and riding the Circuit,
were good enough. But this was
not enough. Nor was the Sunday
School enough. Some means must
be used that will be of effect every
day of the week and every hour of
the day. Man has a social side as
well as a spiritual side, and an in
tellectual side as well as a social
and spiritual - side, and the
Church must be projected upon
life every hour of the day
and every minute of the hour. The
Epworth League was a device
looking towards this end.
Every day is heard some one say
that man has a soul to save. It is
not true. Man is a soul, a living
soul, from his finger tips to the
cuticles on the palms of his feet, and
to the tip of each hair of his head.
The problem confronting the
Church today was the 3,000,000,
tender children, boys and girls,
who .are directly under the guid
ance of the 6,ooo pastors of the
Methodist Episcopal Church South.
What have you done with them,
you who do not use our League,
you who listen not to our plan,
you who take not our little paper?
What are all of you going to do
with them? Tihat is the problem,
intensified by the fact that it must
be met at once. Angels do not
come any more out of Paradise to
bring bread for those who are hun
gry and water for those who are
athirst, nor does the arch angel fly
across the vaulted heavens to preach
the gospel to the earth. No, the
gospel goes two-foot d, tramp,
tramp, tramp, with the visage of a
Baptist or Methodist minister.
We must care for these children.
That is one phase of the problem.
The other phase is that we must do
it now, or the time will pass away
forever. The average life of an
Epworth League member is about
three years, and during those three
frightful years this work must be
done. That is the problem, and
when you solve that problem you
have solved all the problems of the
rhose brought in childhood never
give us care or worry or woe. Those
that have kissed and cussed and
lied have wasted most of their gol
den years and so have little when
they come to lay down their lives
at the feet of Christ. That is the
law by which we must reach for
eign missions and every other
Church work. Our work is to get
the children with the golden years
of their lives still before them.
He described the Epworth
League life, the life that sanctifies
and sweetens-fair blossoms of May
among the almond blossoms of age,
that give promise of only greater
fruitfulness. If anybody tells you
that the Epworth League is a place
for courting, don't deny it. But if
he says it is a bad thing, crucify
him, kill him, bury him fourteen
feet deep in the earth, put a stone
weighing five tons upon his grave
and leave him to his fate. The Ep
worth League husband is a good
thing, Epworth League wives are
good for the young men, and Ep
worth League courting is a good
thing. He knew from experience
A wise pastor will organize his
congregation. He does not find
time to reach each individual, and
there is a little black book which
says he must instruct the children.
What ought *he to do? WVhy, or
ganize the boys and girls into
groups and -visit the groups, and
these groups are Epworth Leagues,
no matter what they are called.
Soon the pastor will be called upon
to marry a couple of these Marys
and Joannas and Johns. And they
will become teachers and after
iwhile presidents and vice-presi
lents of these Epworth Leagues.
Life is made up of little things,
ere a little, there a little. Some
imes the Epworth Lagune may
not last for more than a year, but
in that time the destiny of an im
mortal life may have been decided.
The greatest difficulties the Board
found in their work were the two
classes of pastors, the one which
considered the Epwot th League so
trivial that it was not worth his
time, and the other who considered
it as complicated as the sphinx.
No life is pure, brave or strong
that does not pray. The Epworth
League gathers the young people
together for prayer. There are some
who go into it because people die
sometimes and when people die it is
well to be religious, and they think
this is an easy way of being religi
ous. They find the old-fashioned
method of prayer, and they soon
drop off. God be praised that these
are few, that most of those in the
work are the whelps of lions. The
speaker, in his inimitable manner,
told a story illustrating the power
of prayer. In the Epworth League
prayer and the books have met.
The speaker had heard some pas
tors say they had no Epworth
League, but they had a prayer
meeting. If they have a prayer
meeting they have an Epworth
League. What is an Epworth
League but a prayer meeting?
What is the universe but a prayer
meeting? What will be that great
army gathered.out of every nation
and country and tongue, at the gates
of heaven waiting one evening till
the morning break, that they may
enter in? What will it be? Noth
ing but a pr.ayer meeting. And
that great host within the gates
throughout all eternity? What will
it be? Nothing but a prayer meet
ing. For they cry, saying, "Halle
lujah, hallelujah, the Lord God
forever reigneth."
But to pray and to stop is to
mock. The world prays too much
now after a fashion. It prays now
and the amen reaches from one
prayer to the other. The truth is
most of our prayers ought to begin
with the amen. Between prayers
ought to come the working days of
our life, doing that which we pray
to come to pass.
What the young people need now
is books put into their hands and
someone to see that they read them.
They that bury their faces in the
fragrant pages of the Old Book
will drink deep t;he water of life.
It is the making of destiny. They
will see the mysteries of God and
the awful things that lie behind his
throne. Good books, not the trashy
romances of these latter days.
This kind of books the Epworth
League seeks to provide.
He concluded with stating his
purpose in being here to enlist every
preacher in the movement.
After prayer in behalf of Rev.
T. G. Herbert, led by Dr. 0. A.
Darby, the congregation was dis
missed with the benediction.
