Tnary each week of the doings of
the legislature. There are matters
of great importance to be disposed
of. The body will convene next
Tuesday at noon.
We have not looked into the
chrouonologj', but weare convinced
that it was at this season, early in
the new year, when Shakespeare
was inspired to say: "Who steals
my parse steals trash; 't is some
Man of Great Heart.
The Advertiser will repeat what
it has said before: this or any other
nation is extremely fortunate in
having such a man as William Jen
nings Bryan occupy a place in the
official family second only to the
President himself. A remark which
Mr. Bryan made in a public ad
dress at Lincoln, Nebraska, a few
days aero reflects what manner of
man he is. Mr. Bryan, in discuss
ing a semi-religious subject, said:
The peace movement-God speed
in its passage around the world. I
pray God may help me to make it
unnecessary that this government
-eball go to war with Mexico. I do
not want men to die before guns
for their country; I want them to
live for their country."
Safe-Guard the Primary.
The General Assembly of South
Carolina will convene in annual
cession nert Tuesday at noon, and
during the ensuing month or six
?weeks many matters of importance
will receive the thoughtful atten
tion of the lawmakers. Of all of
these matters that concern the well
being of our people not one is- of
greater importance at this juncture
than that of safe-guarding the Dem
ocratic primary election. Every
thing else should be subordinated,
be made ' to occupy second place,
nntil some satisfactory means is pro
Tided for 1 )lding honest elections
in South Carolina, precluding the '
possibility of designing demagogue^ 1
prostituting the primary system to j
the furtherance of base and selfish '
ands. i t
The Trusts Routed.
It ha* beea proven over and
over again that the strong arm of
the National government is tr resist
ible and can cope with any situa
ci?n. The way in which the great
trusts have been bumbled and rout
ed, yielding to both direct and in
direct legislation, shows that Na
tional legislation is well nigh om
nipotent, at least as much ao as
any means the finite mind can de
vise. Scores and scores of great
trusts held the people captive for
years and for a time even the gov
ern ment officials themselves were
made to do their bidding.
As a result of National legisla
tion, the Beetles have shifted and
now we find many of these great
corporations in a state of disintegra
tion. A striking example of the
effects of indirect legislation upon
the trusts is found in the effect that
the parcel post law has had upon
the express companies, they them
selves having formed a colossal and
conspicuously arrogont trust. As
a result of making special provision
for the transmission o? packages
through the mails, the express com
panies have reduced their rates to
less than half. The rate now upon
a fi ve-pound package by express
from Columbia to New York is 33
cents, whereas the former rate waa
70 cents. The rate now to Chicago
is 34 cents, while it was 75 cents.
It can be safely assumed that the
expre88 company is not now accom
modating the public by transport
ing packages at cost, so the enor
mous difference in the old rate and
new rate went into the pockets of
the stockholders. Our prediction
is that the government1 has only
made a beginning in the matter of
correcting by legislation the tyrrany
of the great moneyed interests. It
may be remarked, incidentally, that
the new tariff legislation was a long
stride in that direction.
Away From Congested Centres.
It is frequently the case that a
specialist is never at ease cr quite
himself except when discussing mat
ters pertaining to his specialty and
?u?? mo V|;IIJIUM uu omer matrera is
of little value. Such ?snot the cace
with the great chemist, Dr. Ha.-vey
W. Wiley, who first came into na
tional prominence through his riyid
interpretation and enforcement of
the pure food law. Dr. Wiley ap
pears frequently upon the lecture
platform and has proven his versa
tility by discussing many subjects
with marked intelligence, notwith
standing the fact that the major
portion of his years ha* been devo
ted to laboratory work.
In an address before the Young
Men's Christian association in New
York Sunday, Dr. Wiley stated that
the establishment of large factories
in rural communities and in small
towns would help to solve the prob
lem of urban congestion as well a*
greatly aid in reducing the cost of
living by facilitating the distribu
tion of the country's food supply.
This is a su?gestion that is well
worth considering. If many of th?
teeming hundreds of manufacturing
plants that are located in New York
city were located in the ?mall to wir
in the state of New York, or bette
still, if they were brought to th- |
southern states where the climate i
more favorable conditions sur
rounding the thousanda of opera
tivea would be immeasurably im
proved. The same would apply t.
Chicago, St. Louis, New Orleans
and other large cities.
Even in a city the size of Atlant;,
the cost of living could be great 1
reduced by the removal of score
of manu facta ri ne plants out to th.
small towns where food and fuel foi
the operatives could be more cheap
ly purchased than in the ruy whee
the demand frequently ixceedsthe
-upply. Furthermore, as Dr. Wi
'ey saya in refeiing to the dixtrihu
tton of tbe country's food supply,
it would afford a ready and profita
ble market for much country pro
luce that is now practically wasted
iround small tow ns through lack ol
i profitable m;rket. In connection
with Dr. Wiley's auggesti.m it is
lardly necessary to pres.-ut or dwjll
?pon the improvement of nonie
if.* and social conditions by mov
ie away from the congested cities.

Auto Accidents Increase.
Kore statistics. During 1913 the
records sho* that 302 persons were
killed by automobiles m New York
City. This was an increase of 81 over
1912, when 221 were killed by Automo
biles. In 1911 only 142 met death in
this way. In 1910 but 112. Every
year the slaughter increases. The
wonder is that under all the conditions
it is no worse. -News and Courier.
