The American Constitution and Creed
of Liberty Are Being Sorely Tried.
Sooner or later we must reach
an ultimatum with the Filipinos.
Already the island and thsir in
cidents have cost us nearly $500,
000,000. How long the people of
-0 this nation w/ill consent to pay
out a half million of dollars every
day to prolong this experiment
in imperial colonialism is an un
guessable conundruim. But that

What are we doing in the
islands, anyhowv Certainly we
are not pacifying them with dis
patch and decorum. True, every
once in a while the accommodat

over there announces that "the
war is over," but before the type
written assurance gets fairly
afloat the cable brings news that
the furtive.and pugnacious Fill
pifios have bobbed up in a fresh
locality and boloed a platoon of
their pacificators. Forty thous

truth seems to be that wye are to

The civil governments which
our academic commission. are or
gqnizing appear to be fearfully
and wonderfully devised to pro
dmice rather than reduce chaos.
Their legislc ve features would
give Solon a pain in the neck and
cause Jubtinian a neuralgia under
his bump of equity. The Filipino
is the slave of ingrained tribal
traditions and practices, or else
the truculent product of the Latin
idea of absolutism in government.
As a drilled and commendable
citizen he is as imitative as a
monkey and as repetitious as a
parrot. Our effort to invest him
with self-governing authority and
a sense of. democratic responsi
bility is a freakism that pales
any proposition that ever blew off
the prolific political prairies of
Kansas. It is bound to end in
abortions of government that will
humiliate us in the eyes of the
whole world.

Referring to State Superinten
ent McM ahan's annual report,
ist published, The State says of
i sebool statistics furnished:

istruction they need. Good 3
aching cannot be secured with
at good pay, yet the average
hite teacher in South Carolina
ceives less than $200 a year
ad the average negro teacher
ss than $100 a year. In the
Lst three years the average
mgth of the school term for
-ite children has increased but :
o weeks and that for negro
iildren has actually been short
aed. The average term of the
hite schools is but 21 weeks, or b
-s than five calendar montb,
hile the negro schools on the
verage are kepLspen but 14 L
eeks, or about .' ,onths. In '
ree years the white eurollment
as increased but 4,000 and the
verage attendance but 8,000,
-hile the enrollment .of negroes Y
as increased 11,000 and their

-ro in the public schools, a c
Lumbe ry far short of the total

earth. Only 25c at McMaster

The Anderson Intelligencer
very aptly says: "The greatest
factor for the advancement and
up-buildfug of a' town is men;
men who will meet each other
with a cordial shake of the hand;
men who are not dominated by
spleen, political or otherwise;
men who will take a pride in
showing visitors over the' city;
men who will work for the inter
est of those who come among us;
men who can be depended on;
men who will talk business and
trasact business; men who are
not afraid to do their duty no
matter what obstacles miay be,
placed in their way by the vicious;
ren who never croak nor give ear
to croakers.
