Piedmont, wmiamston, Laurens, New

ill these people, have no way to i;o
to the lower part of South Carolina
unless they go way round by Augusta
or way round by Columbia.
Then think ?if the thmi3snds of
people ip the lower part of the State,
in Charleston, Orangeburg, Barn

Beaufort, Savannah and Florida with
no way to get to the Piedmont or to

Augusta or way round by Colmbia.
The eastern part of the State hay
several railroad? running North HIM!

another from Sumter to Charleston,
and another from Sumter to Augusta,
end there IR the Seaboard from Ham

Charleston occupies a place in thc
sentiment of South Carolina that no
other city doeB. lt ts true she has
Binned a great deal in her day of
grace. She has been bo'h a law and
a world unto herself. Her streets are
too narrow and dirty and that has
doubtless had its hyscpologlcal effect
on ber citizens. And she has failed
to attract enough ot the good brawn
and brain of the country districts.
And her business men have lost trade
because in former days they wanted
the whole hog.
But with all her faults the people
of South Carolina love her still. And
we are not of those to use the pres
ent occasion to speak a bad word.
For we believe In Charleston. Ve
think that the day ls not far distan ct
when she will come to her own age in.
We are proud of Charleston because
she is the greatest city In the Stat-?.
She has great advantages both ac
quired and natural. The three great
est railroad systems of the South
now have terminals there. And tho

THE WAR-AFTER TEN MONTHS
(Philadelphia Public Ledger.)
Were it n?)? for tho dramatic entry ol Italy, tin- ' ??titrai fact of the war situ
ation today would ho the Russian collapse in Galicia. Thin 1B a more serious
defeat than the famous reverse of the Masurian l,akeu In East Prussia, which
gave \HII Hindenburg his first laurels, and it Is even more significant than
tho roundliiK up! of the Russian army before Warsaw, which was one of the
i everest early collapses that the Russian offensive In Poland experienced.
IT Italy had not entered, and If the possibility of Rumania mid the other
Balkan "Slates coming In on the side o? the ollies were not Imminent and e.
matter for the Germans to act upon, this complete breakdown of Russia
would be considered the most definite event vi the war. But every one hus
bet ome so accustomed to the movements of millions of men on the Eastern
frontier taking on the character of gigantic seesaws, that they are apt to
view this reverse as merely another awing of the gigantic pendulum.
Przemsyl fell to the Russians on March ~2, but unless they are able to bring
forward large bodies of troops from Bukowina, and have bettered the Aus
tratn defenses sine? their two months' occupation on the fortreR8,'4helr re
tirement may be only a matter of a few hours. i
AU thin bears on the larger aspects of the war, and that the Russian weak
n< s, both lu strategy and tactic?, waH not unexpected docs nut help matters.
lt ls, however, one of the things that was forecast, but, having been realized
to a humiliating degree, played Its part In the unfortunate lack of prepara
tion to the English to their physical if not moral discomfiture. One thing,
indeed, ?he Russian and the English lacks prove beyond all questions of dis
pute, and that ls that Germany's claim that war was forced on her, ftrst by
the Russian aggregation, and second, by England's determination that the
time had como to strike with Russia and Germany's back was the sheerest
baldest Invention of an insoleut and Impudent diplomacy, confident that Its
overpowering military preparedness was equal to any other combination li?
Europe among the nations which Germany knew neither desired nor were
leady for war.
This, indeed, the ten months of war prove In an accumulative mauner. For
on the Western frontier, however, one might like to believe it otherwise.
Belgium. England and France are still on the defensive. Their "drives,"
flielr so-called "spring advance," have not been in any sense decisive and in
some caseo the ground gained has been lost almost Immediately. Thin I3 trne
ot the British campaign about Ypres and Is also more or less self-evident
In the slight change In thc French lines east of Verdun and the heights of
the Meuse. There ls no such a thing In sight ar, an "advance on Metz." and
there ls no "rolling back" of the Gerinn army in Belgium "toward Ita own
frontiers." These tasks which still confront tho allied armies in the West
nie problems of a colossal magnitude, and. from thc present outlook, a year
hence may still find thc formidable issues unsolved.
The general situation, however, is most likely to change through the devel
opments of the Italian campaign, and through what seems to bc the very
successful. If slow, movement toward Constantinople. The Dardanelles cam
paign, and the Italian and Balkan possibilities aro thc bright spotB for tho
allies, an the ten months of this most horrible war move slowly and sullenly
lo a close. Moreover, lt is as definitely known In England as In Berlin that
it ls the morale of men and ofllcers, and not the failure of munitions of war,
that han created the Russian situation. With Berlin confident anticipation
sf thin condition, the Austro-German assurance In thc face of a world of
toes ls explained.
However much the majority of us
may differ In our vie wa and sympa
thies over the European' war. there ia
one point, at least, on which few ur
us will disagree. And that lt, that
Italy shows up Just n little wore than
ill the ot?iers.
For Italy, it can not be forgotten.

True enough, perhaps, r.lic tries to I

But when lt Is taken Into considera

ill the benefits and protection ot that :

rory first opportunity that seemed to I

aer action can scarcely be consider- i

To do Italy tull Justice, however- ?
md, certainly, she needs to have said I

As matters stand, there arr* three <
potent reasons for Italy's action: To -

with the exaction of compound in- <
teres t; to gratify the resentment 1
aroused in the. hearts of the sensitive I
Italians for what they term "Prua- i
iian arrogance;" and to fight tor the <
.ide which the nation feelB ts "the
aide of justice and humanity." 1

IE ACH ERY
as pertinent und pressing at the very
outset of the war as at any time since,
Italy has waited neatly ten full
months before casting the die for v.-ar
on her own account. This leads to
the inevitable conclusion-particular
ly in view of all the trading and dlck
rrlng that nhe has been carrying ou
with Austria and Germany-that she
was merely walting 'to determine
whether or not, or when, it would be
reasonably "safe" to take up armb
igatnst her former alli?-:*.
It is inconceivable that she could
have been induced to this act of
treachery if, for instance, her former
Teutonic allies had. already, triumph
?d over F.mssla and had only Great
Mri tain and France to dispose of; or
No. she has. simply, awaited her op
portunity and Just as soon as she finds
