Bryan as “a sincere lover of humanity
and a patriotic citizen of the United
States.” He eulogized both Bryan and
Cleveland amid profuse cheering.
An Invitation was sent to the capi

the convention. Governor Folk re
sponded, and was cheered when he !
entered the hall and mounted the ros- j

PLANTERS ARE WRONGED
South Carolina Conjvessman Introduces
Resolution in House Calling for
Papers and Facts.
A Washington special says: Mon
day’s estimate of cotton acreage by
the department of agriculture has re
sulted in a demand that the reports
on which this estimate was based bo
sent to congress.
Representative Ellerbee of South
Carolina, President Harvie Jordan of
the Southern Cottrn Association and
others, will call up .'resident Roose
velt and will urge ciat ho take a hand
in an investigation into the methods
resorted to by the department.
iLate Tuesday afternoon Representa
tive Ellerbe introduced in the house
the following resolution:
“Whereas the department of agri
culture on June 4, ’4.906, made an esti
mate of the area of land planted in
cotton during the current year; and
“Whereas, it. Is believed that the
acreage of 28,886,000, given out by the
department, exceeds the amount ac
tually planted ;and
“Whereas, it is believed that this
estimated acreage is far In excess of
the area actually planted in cotton,

received by the department of agri
culture from its correspondents.
“Resolved, That the secretary of ag
riculture be, and is hereby directed

tabulated sheet showing the estimate
of acreage made by the seven classes
of correspondents, viz.: the field
agents, the state agents, the corre

Mr. Ellerbee asserts that he knows
of his own knowledge, having gotten
it from a person who saw the reports
received by the department, that there
is nothing in them to warrant an es
timate of an increased acreage.

what called it forth, Mr. Ellerbee
“I introduced the resolution because
I have direct and positive information

INTERNATIONAL LESSON COMMENTS
FOR JUNE 17.
ftubjtct: The Transfiguration, tnke lx.,
28-36—Golden Tex.: Luke ix., 35
Tople: LeMoni of tlie Trausflauratton
—Memory Verge*, 30, 31—Commentary
I. A night of prayer (v. 2S). 28.
“About an eight days after.” Matthew
and Mark say six days. There were
six full days and the fractional days at
the beginning and the end making
“about” eight. ‘These sayings.” The
sayings of the last lesson. Edersheim
supposes the great confession occurred
on the Sabbath, and tlie transfiguration
oft the night after the Sabbath one
week later. There is no intimation as
to how the intervening week was
spent. ‘‘Peter and John and James.”
It was the same favored three who
had gone with Him into tlie room
where He raised Jairus’ daughter, and
a few months later these same apos
tles witnessed His agony in the garden.
“Into a mountain.” The place of the
transfiguration scene is unknown, but
it was probably Mount Hermon, not
far from Caesarea Philippi. This is
the opinion of nearly all modern au
thorities. “To pray.” It was the habit
of Jesus to go alone in the night to
pray. Before He chose the Twelve,
and after feeding the five thousand,
we see Him praying in the night.
11. Jesus transfigured (v. 29). 29.
“As He prayed.” During His prayer.
The transfiguration was the answer.
“Countenance was altered.” The orig
inal word is elsewhere in the New
Testament rendered “transformed”
(see Rom. 12:2; 2 Cor. 3:18), and is used
of a spiritual change. Matthew says.
“His face did shine as the sun.” “Rai
ment became white and dazzling.” R.
V. Mark says, “Exceeding white as
snow.” It was His inner spirit shining
through the veil of flesh.
111. Heavenly visitants (vs. 30, 31).
30. “Moses and Elias.” Elias is the
Greek form for Elijah: This was not
a vision. These persons were actually
present, and the disciples recognized
them, as is evident from Peter’s propo
sition in verse 33. This gives good
ground for believing that we shall rec
ognize our friends in Heaven
31. “Who appeared in glory.” In
like glory with Jesus; with glorified
bodies. May this not be a hint as to
the appearance of our resurrection
bodies? “Spake of His decease.” Or
departure, or exodus from the world;
including, no doubt, His death, resur
rection and ascension. “Which He
was about to accomplish.” R. V. “This
conversation would enable the disciples
to see the importance and necessity of
that which was to them the greatest
mystery”—the suffering and death of
IY.—Three disciples behold His glory
(vs. 32, 33). 32. “Heavy with sleep.”
It was in the night, and the time when
they usually slept. Our ..English Yer
sipe implies that they fell asleep and
were awakened to see His glory, while
the original implies that, though heavy
■with sleep, they kept fully awake.
“Were fully awake.” R. V. Even
though they may have been asleep at
first, yet when He was “transfigured
before them” they were fully awake.
“Saw His glory, and the two men.”
They saw the brilliancy of their coun
tenances, and the dazzling brightness
of the garments. 33. “As they de
parted.” Were departing. Peter must
have seen that they were ready to
leave. “Peter said.” Eager and im
pulsive as always. It was for him too
brief a glimpse of the heavenly glory.
“It is good for us to be here.” Peter
spoke the truth. The apostles would
be stronger and more*,useful because
of the divine manifestations. “Three
tabernacles.” Or booths, from the
bushes on the mountains; such as"were
made at the feast of Tabernacles. He
greatly desired to have the heavenly
visitants remain with them. “Not
knowing what he said.” Peter’s plans
were frequently in opposition to those
of his Lord.
V. The voice from the cloud (vs. 34-
30). 34. “While He thus spake.” “Here
was the response to Feter’s suggestion,
a wise answer to a foolish prayer; de
nying the petition in order to grant
something better.” “There came a
cloud, and overshadowed them.” Mat
thew says a “bright” cloud. A cloud
had frequently been the symbol of the
divine presence. It was a cloud that
guided and protected the children of
Israel (Exod. 13:21; 14:19); a cloud that
filled the temple at the dedication (1
Kings 8:10, 11); and the Lord maketh
the cloud His chariots (Psa. 104:13).
Peter refers to the clouds that over
shadowed them on the mount as “the
excellent glory” (2 ret. 1:17). “They
feared.” This glorious manifestation
of God’s presence caused them to trem
ble. It is very likely that the trans
figuration took place in the night, in
which case the light of Christ’s coun
tenance, the dazzling brightness of Plis
garments, and the glory of the cloud,
would have a marked effect, because
of the absence of the solar light. “En
tered into.” The cloud seemed to de
scend over them and envelop them. 35.
“A voice.” The voice of God the
Father. It revealed nothing new, but
confirms the old, for it was the same
voice which had been heard at His
baptism. This would show to Peter
and the apostles that they did not need
to detain Moses and Elijah in order to,
add to their happiness. “This is My
beloved Son.” Matthew adds. “In
whom I am well pleased.” “Hear
Him.” He is superior even to Moses.
36. “When the voice was past.”
Matthew tells us that when the disci
ples heard the voice they fell on their
faces, and were sore afraid; then, re
covering from the shock, they suddenly
gazed all around them and saw no
person but Jesus. “Kept it close."
Mark says that Jesus charged them
that they should “tell no man what
things they had seen, till the Son or
Man were risen from the dead.”

Keir Hardie urged the agricultural
laborers to form a strong union to
protect themselves and to enable
them to obtain land which would
render them independent in times
when without employment. Men, he
said, had been driven off the soil and
into the town slums through the land
being turned into deer forests for
American millionaires and other id

the same part to society as did the
