Ridge Street Tabernacle to Be Torn Down (Continued From Page One) liberty Loan meetings where Danville people opened their purses and strengthened the financial sinews of war. Mothers Day services have been held there and the Ku Kltur Klan has held forth there. The fade'd minutes of the old Tab- ernacle tell the story of Its useful- ness. In August 1898 local church- men decided to invite Rev. Sam P. Jones, one of the greatest evangelists of that day to come to Danville to hold "protracted services." A com. mittee went over to Durham, N. C., to see him but they found that he had numerous engagements and could not come here. Later Rev. W. G. Starr went to Cartersville, Ga, and saw the evangelist securing his promise to come here May 12th, 1889. A com- mittee of seven laymen made all the arangements for the meeting, the committee being J. E. Schoolfield, C. H Coorad, J. R. Jopllng, W. W. Wors- ham, George W. Swain, R. R. Bate- man and W. P. Hodnett. This com- mittee secured the use of Fanners warehouse and the meeting was held there The following year it was decided to ask the evangelist back to Danville because of the success of his first meeting and at the same time It was agreed that a Tabernacle should be built for that purpose. A committee went to work therefore and after some negotiations J. R. Pleasante was given the contract to build the structure which cost Adding the cost of the land and the equip, ment the whole enterprise _cost the seven churches around 88.000. It was finished In the early Summer of 1890. The tabernacle was formally open- ed with a large congregation and was dedicated by Rev. T. B. Thames, who preached the opening sermon. At that time announcement was made of the first board of trustees appointed to govern the building. Of the seven- teen members of the original board only two survive, Mayor Harry "Wood- Ing and J. N. Wyllle. The board wasj composed of J. E. Schoolfield, J. O.' Perm, C. H. Conrad, E. G. Moseley, J. N. Wvllis, W. T. Sutheriln, J. H.

Just when they reached Navarin Islands, which by direct flying would have required only about 33 hours out ot Samush- iro, was not stated. The Buriat reported she had sup- plied the gasoline to refuel the Moyle-Allen plane and that the fliers were planning a take-off tottay. weather permitting. The ship said both men and plane were in good condition. However, it reported high winds and heavy seas at Navarln. "It was here that I saw General Robert E. Lee for the first time.
