HARLAN, POUTER & WALKER "YOUR SATISFACTION IS OUR SUCCESS." MIST ERS OF CITY DIVIDED ON ACTION NATION SHOULD TAKE ALL CRITICISE SINKING OF LUSI TANIA FROM HUMANITARIAN. VIEWPOINT. NO JUSTIFICATION WHATEVER Some Favor Severance of Diplomatic Relations, Others Await Statement From Wilson, While Still Others Think Provocation Insufficient The ministers of the city were un sparing this morning in their denunci ation from a humanitarian stand point of the sinking of the Lusitania by a German submarine. As 'to the steps that should be taken by the gov ernment, they were somewhat divided in opinion. Some were for the sev erance of diplomatic relations with Germany, others favored the calling of a special session of congress by President Wilson, while still others were of the opinion that there had not been sufficient provocation yet for a declaration of open war. The ministers were at their month ly meeting when they were seen by a representative of The Herald this morning. All were very willing to ex press themselves, but a majority were for conservatism until President Tiil son had thoroughly investigated all phases of the matter and expressed himself upon the matter. The following was the statement of Dr. W. B. Ricks: "I regard the sink ing of the Lusitania as one of the most shameful acts in the history o" the United States. It was an act of the purest piracy and murder. Some action ought to 1e taken by this na tion. I believe that we ought to at least sever all diplomatic relations with Germany, the instigator of this crime against civilization." "I do not feel called upon," said Dr. J. C. Molloy, of the First Presby terian church, "to express myself un til President Wilson has spoken. He has all the sources of information m regard to the sinking of the boat, and I think it premature on my part to speak until he has given out a state ment to the American people. A to the humanitarian feature of the affair, I am profoundly shocked and grieved." Said Dr. W.T. Ussery: "The sink lng of the Lusitania was nothing oth er than legalized butchery. However. I doubt the propriety of war." In speaking of the affair, Dr. Lo gan, of the Garden street Presbyte rian church, said: "With the infor mation that I have before me in re gard to the sinking of the boat, I do not think that there Is sufficient rea- Alkahest Chautauqua Presents Great Actor, Author and Lecturer ll ' ' V A2 1 It ; - 4 'f:yl- Vol son to declare war upon Germany." This opinion was concurred in by Dr. Charles Alexander, of the First Bap tist church; Rev. W. T. Spears, of Frierson Memorial, Rev. J. B. Cheek, of the South Columbia Methodist, and Rev. D. D. Little. Col. Joseph H. Spearing, of the Co lumbia Military Academy, made the following statement: "I am of the opinion that the situation is sufficient ly grave to justify President Wilson in calling a special session of con gress to take action in regard to the matter." Dr. J. J. Stowe, of Pulaski, pastor of the Methodist church at that place, who was in Columbia for a few mo ments this morning, en route to Nashville, said: "The sinking of the Lusitania was nothing less than murder. I do not see how our government can refuse to act. It must hold Germany to that strict1, accountability of which it was solemnly warned. It is horrible, one of the most horrible deeds in history and I was profoundly shocked. I had not thought It possible that Germany would go to this length. I do not see how our nation can submit to such flagrant and outrageous violations of all the cannons of civilization and the rules of international warfare." FINAL EXERCISES AT HAMPSHIRE SCHOOL WILL END SPLENDID TERM WITH AN AMBITIOUS PROGRAM. Commencement exercises of the Hampshire public school will begin with the baccalaureate sermon by Rev. William Benjamin Ricks, D. D. of Columbia on next Sunday at 11 o'clock at the Hampshire Methodist church. On Tuesday night.

The annual declamation con test will take place on Wednesday morning at 10 o'clock and on Wed nesday night there will be the final exercises, which will be of uausually ambitious nature. j Under the capable direction of Prof. John P.

TRIP WILL Bl ' PROFITABLE Found That Many Modern Conditions and Means of Living Exist in the Old Spanish Country Eng'ish is Spoken by the Upper Classes. "I found business matters some what demoralized in Guatemala as a result of the war in Europe," said W. W. Dyer, who has just returned from the Central American republic. "Heretofore the sugar and coffee crops have been fianced by the Ger man and English bankers, mainly the former. The war has upset their credits, and the business men had to look to America to finance them. This has not been successfully ac complished yet, and as a result there of business conditions have not be come adjusted, but are somewhat at a standstill.. Most of the main products of the little republic have been sold in this" country. ' 1 ' "Conditions, manner of living, way of thinking and means of doing busi ness there are . different from whatytbey are here. I found many of the better educated, more refined, and upper classes who spoke English flu ently. The lower, or laboring classes, spoke Spanish almost entirely. There has been a great influx of Mexicans into Guatemala since the revolution in the country of the former. "I was surprised at some of the lux iries that the people had. In making my way up from the seaport to Gua temala City, which is about twenty miles inland, I found that the train had a Pullman car on it. In the city, which is the capital of the country, there were many evidences of modern life. Of course the architecture of the buildings, the streets and many other things were different, but still I found that they had many new and recent ideas. Many of the upper class of people are widely traveled in the states. , "As for revolutions, I was told by a prominent financier on my way back that these caused little disturbance, fact, little more than one of the Wall Street flurries. He also stated that if the United States were to take session of Guatemala as she did Cuba, and establish a stable, repub lican form of government, the coun try would blossom and bloom wonder fully. "While I did not secure many or ders as a. result of the trip, I think that eventually it will be very profit able, and that I will get many orders from this source." TENDER THANKS PLEASANT STAY All Sunday school records were again smashed Sunday morning at the First Methodist church, when 357 men, women and children were pres ent at the services. This is seventeen more than the re- ord, which was established some time since. On that Sunday there were 340 on hand. There was no special effort yesterday to get out a large crowd. The attendance was purely spontaneous. Needless to say, the attendance was very gratifying to the officers of the chorea and the ' Sunday school MEMBERS OF THE EPISCOPAL CONVENTION GRATEFUL TO THEPEOPLE HERE. Delegates to the recent Episcopal convention were most appreciative of the hospitality shown them by the people of Columbia as was attested by the following resolution, offered by Dr. Whittaker. of Knoxvllle, and adopted Just before adjournment: "Resolved, That the thanks of the convention be and are hereby tender ed the rector and congregation and people of Columbia for their most generous hospitality, to the organist and choir for yieir splendidly ren dered music, to the ladles for their highly appreciated luncheons, to the newspapers of Columbia for their ex cellent reports and to the clubs of the city for their many courtesies."

LOSING TO MASSEY GILES COUNTIANS GOT LONG END OF AN 8 TO 1 SCORE SATURDAY. BUM HELDINGLOST THE 0AM! Hill Pitched Fair Ball But Support Was All to the Bad Minor Hurled Last Three Innings, But Was Bat ted Hard Box Score of Game. After administering a sound beat ing Friday to the Castle Heights ag gregation, the cadets suffered a sud den reversal of rorm twenty-four hours later and took an 8 to 1 licking from Massey, of Pulaski. The defeat sustained by the locals was a complete upsetting of the dope upon the situation. It was about as sudden a change in form as that of the Volunteers, who, after a glorious start penantward, have ingloriously dropped their last seven straight games. In short, with Minor working well Friday afternoon, the cadets looked like a million dollars. Within the cycle of the sun, they looked like a hunk of cheese perforated with holes or a worm and battered ten cent piece. They had lost all of their form and class, they were lack ing in pepper and life, and threw the game away behind Hill with bad fielding. The pitching was fair. Hill hurl ed the pill for the first seven Innings, and something like three or four safe ties were accumulated off of his de livery. There was but one complaint to be found with him. He was a bit too liberal with his walks, as he in sisted upon giving free transporta tion every now and then. Invariably these walks were but the starters, which eventually became runs. Minor took up the burden alone about the seventh. He got by this round but in the next the Massey boys got to him for a marker, and in the ninth and last frame, they added four more for good measure. COUNTY HIGH IS AGAIN THR VICTOR PRICE-WEBB, OF LEWISBURG, IS LATEST VICTIM OF THE LO CAL SCHOOL. One of the best, quickest and snap piest games played here this season was that on Saturday when the Co lumbia high school defeated Price Webb school, of Lewisburg three to two. The locals had the game from the first, putting one run across in . 1 i : i 1 : . rt..i. 11. - i j iub uuucii mnuig. jjlu wie ifau was never more than one run and the con test was exciting and well played from start to finish. Both teams did splendid work in the field. Harris, in the box for Columbia yielded only three hits, while Jones, pitching for Lewisburg, was touched up for only- five safeties. The same teams meet at Lewisburg on Saturday. MOORESVILLE IS AGAIN VICTORIOUS In a fast and snappy game at Cul leoka on Saturday afternoon the; Mooresvllle School defeated the Cul leoka baseball club by the score or three to one. The locals played an, exceptionality good game In the field but they were unable to solve the mysteries of Beasley's delivery. THE GOODMAN-DEAN MARBLE ft).
