The ?South Carolina Co-Educational
Institute is in the midst bf the most
prosperous session in its history. Col,|
Bailey, the President, has spent thou
sands of dollars on improvements dur-1
lng tht past summer and since the col
lege h?s opened. Well equipped lava
tories have been pu. 'n tor the physics
and chem ist ry classes. These alone cos;
several hundred* dollars. The latest
thing put in is a large and costly tele
scope for the use of the class in as
tronomy. Only the best colleges in
Ute State have, such equipments aa Col.
Bailey is giving the S. C. C. I. students
the advantage of. Boarding students
from nine states are now in attendance.
The latest state to he represented in
the student body is Illinois. Since
Jan. 3rd twenty-four applications lor
rooms in the barracks have been re
fused owing to the fact that every
available space is already occupied.
There are only *hree colleges in the
statue that have more boarding stu
dents than the S. C. C. I.-Winthrop,
Converse, and Clemson. Our college
is certainly growing in favor not only
in South Carolina but in other states.
Last Saturday was the occasion for
an hour of delightful entertainment to
the members of tbe Auf Wiedersehen
Club assembled at the home of Mrs J.
B. Haiti wanger. This is the only liter
ary club of which the history of Edge- j
field holds any record, and perhaps
foreshadows, in tbis the dawn of the
twentieth century, the coming devel
opment and culture which the women
of Edgefleld will- demand'- cf' -them
selves. Miss Louise Pofpenheim, bf
Charleston, gave the club a delightful
resume of the work in the varied de
partments of the Woman's Federation
of Clubs in South Carolina, of which
she is president. She also edits The
. Keystone, the organ of the Federation,
a monthly magazine controlled tn
tirely by women, for the help and in
spiration of women. Miss Poppen heirn
h a graduate of Vassar College, that
ucreaebed educational goal of so many
women. She is a.typical Charleston
?woman, full of that refined and charac
teristic vivacity peculiar to Charleston
and yet that vivacity culled of all
those habits of speech, inconsistent
with refinement and womanliness, to
which so mnny women of the day
privilege themselves. She was an in
spiration to the club, and all those
who were present will hold ber in
sweet and lasting remembrance.

White Labor in The
The removal of the\e*s?ta-a?)ttoii
mill from Charleston. S. C., to"
Gainesville, Ga., and the failure
of negro labor iii the operation of
of, the mill, has eaYised considerable |
commeut by the northern press.
The Philadelphia Ledger says:
"They say the negroes are lazy,
trifling, and will not work a*I
steadily as they must in order]
to make their labor profitable.
The report does not speak well for
the establishment of cotton mills
iu the cotton fields, about which
so much was said two o- three
years ago; but what will the com
pany do at Gainesville; Will it i
find while labor there?"
There is no ground for uneasiness ]
on this score. In every agricultural
community iu the south, and in
the counties of north Georgia
especially, there are hunch edp of
families that cao spare one or
more members to *work in the
mills. "The cottou mill in the
cotton field" is no longer a vision ;
it has become a reality; and the
existence of this efficient is what
has made it so.
The time is far distant when we
shall be forced to utilize negro
labor in our mills. There are
other kinds of employment for
which the negro seems to be botter
fitted; meanwhile the supply of
white labor will keep well abreast
of the demand, The cotton mill
gives employment to people who
might otherwise remain idle.

MOB LAW STRONGER
THAN TH*] LAW
Tito Last Resort of The Anti
Liquor Men m Kansas.
Topeka, Kansas, February 10.
Three thousand male citizens of
Topeka, in mass meeting here to?
day, issued an unltimatum giving
the numerous joints of the city
until Friday next at 12 o'clock
noon to quit business. If this
shall not be done, warning was
giveu that a thousand armed men
would immediately move on the
joints and remove them by force.
To-day's action is the result of
the crusade started in Topeka
less than ten days ago by Mrs
Carrie Nation. The meeting this
afternoon was a remorkable one in
every respect. It was called by a
committee of the Law Enforcement
League and was attended by nearly
all the prominent business men of
the city. Conservative men, who
have hitherto advocated modera
tion in dealing with the lawless
element, insisted in unmistakable
terms that the time had coine
when patience had ceased to be a
virtue, and that the people of
Topeka should take the law in
their own hands. The meeting
was opened with prayer. Altera
few short, 3nappy addresses, which
worked the audience to a hight
degree of enthusiasm, au
ultimatum was proposed aud
passed amid the loudest cheering.
The ultimatum commanded the
officers of the city and county to
perform their duty regardiug the
closing of the joints. The officers
were warned that they had wait=fd
long enough. The property ownere
in whose premises the joints were
kept wer9 also warned in
unmistakable term's that they
should abate the nuisances at once
or the people of Topeka would not
be responsible tor the damage that
might ensue to the buildings. The
words of condemnation and warn
ing brought murmurs of approval
that gained strength with each
miuute, finally sweeping over the
entire audience and culminating
in great enthusiasm. Old men
and conservative ministers jump
ed to their feet in their
enthusiasm and waved hand
kerchiefs, gesticulated and cheered
to the echo. The ultimatum,
which ffas adopted by a rising
"To those immediately engaged
in the illicit business, whether
wholesale or retail : We gbave to
say that the long controversy of
the public with you must now
come to an end. You have openly
and persistently defied our laws;
you have made yourselves the
agents of even greater criminals
outside of the State, who have
supported ^ou ir* .your unlawful
traflic, you have gathered about
you a criminal element* that is
a perpetual menace to the safety
of the community, and have
maintained places that engender
and encourage all vices; you have
introduced the most corrupting
and demoralizing factors and
influence into our local politics,
and for years you have scorned all
appeals and warnings that have
been preseuted to you by the
virtue-loving people of the com

come when we must speak to you
peremptorily. We cease now to
endeavor to persuade-we com
mand. You must stop this law
less and iniquitous business, and
stop it at once, and we hereby
notify you that we must have
unquestionable evidence, abso
lutely satifactory to the committee
of public order, which we to-day
constitute, that all your illicit
goods, together with all the as
sociated fixtures and furnihings of
the places where your unlawful
businees bas been carried on, shall
be removed and shipped from the
city before 12 o'clock noon, Friday.
February 15,1901. Upon the strict
and literal observance of this
demand we shall insist; and if
it shall be disregarded we will take
whatever measures are necessary
for its enforcement.

be compelled to resort to the
fundamental right of self-vindica

a leading business man, was chair
Chief of Police Stahl made an

machinery of the city would wojrk
in uuison with him. The audience,
amid cheers, adopted a resolution
demanding that the city council
at its next meeting contirm tho
renomination of Mr Stahl forchiof

Twelve hundred men signed
their names to cards pledging
themselves to be ready at a
moment's notice to join the army
which has been recruited to stamp

limit set by the ultimatum expires.

not taking action upon a bill pro
