WEDNESDAY. JUNE 24, 1903.
LAST Sunday was what
might be called "John
Wesley Day". In many
Methodist churches through
out this country special ser
vices were held in celebration
of the two-hundredth anni
versary of the birth of that
great and good man,the foun
der of the Methodist church.
THE board of trustees of,
Furman university has
made a very fortunate selec
tion in electing Dr. E. M. Po
teat president ot that institu
tion. Although at present
pastor of one of the principal
churches in Philadelphia he
was born in North Carolina
and educated at Wake Forest
and the [Southern Baptist
Theological seminary. Dr.
Poteat will take up the work
where the illustrious Mon
tague left oft*, making of Fur
man one of the foremost
schools of its kind in the south.
?T is said that only four of
the sixty graduates from
Clemson college this year will
follow farming. This is very
unfortunate, for the country
needs more model farmers
men who have studied farm
ing from a scientific stand
point. It is presumed that
those w h o graduate from
Clemson, where theory and
practise to go hand in hand,
would make model farmers.
This is a splendid institution
but it seems not to be accom
plishing the purpose for which
it was founded if less than io
per cent of its graduates re
turn to the farm. Possibly
this is an unusual class and
that a greater percentage of
former graduates have be^
THE Town Council has
been formally notified
by the purchasers of the
school bonds that their attor
neys, after a thorough inves
tigation of the matter, are sat
isfied that the law has been
complied with and have pro
nounced the bonds valid.
This formally closed the very
perplexing and seemingly
never ending bond transact
ion. The bonds will be re
ceived in Edgefield on tomor
row or the next day for the
proper signatures. They will
be returned at once and a
check will be forwarded for
them. Now for the erection
of the college building ! ??We
trust that no time will be lost
by the building committee in
arranging with Contractor
Spencer tor the work to be
gin at once. Let the grojnd
be broken^at the first possible
moment and let the work be
carried forward with as much
dispatch as possible. It
means a great deal to the
school, consequently to the
town, that the building be
ready by the opening of the
AN unsuccessful attempt
.---was made in Charlotte
last week to form a trust of
the southern yarn mills.
While individuals and corpo
rations have a moral and le
gal right to combine their in
terests for mutual benefits,
we nevertheless look with
disfavor upon such combina
tions of capital. Had Lord
Bacon lived in this day and
generation he would have
said, money, instead of know
ledge, is power. Combina
tions of unlimited capital car
ry with them nnlimited pow
er, which, oftentimes, is fla
grantly abused. It is alleged
that oil mills regulate thc
price of seed and should the
cotton mills devise some wa)
.ofrlxing the price of cotton,
then the farmers for protec
tion, will have to pool theil
interests. The latter, unfor
tunately, are so thoroughly
imbued with the idea of every
man "toting his own skillet''
that no combination could be
effected among them. The
trust evil has become so gen
eral and gigantic that we are
inclined to distrust aU, tiusts.
