M'Adoo Speaks of Election
New York, Nov. 7.-William G.
3IcAdoo, former secretary of the
"treasury, in a statement tonight com
menting on the result of the national
.selection, declared that "what the
country needs is subsidence of the
passions and hatred engendered by
the war and the partisan political ap
peals that have followed."
"It is of no value to try to explain
the causes of the democratic defeat
November 2nd," zhe statement said.
""The overwhelming republican vier
tory .has given that party the presi
dency, and both houses of the con
gress. .After March 4th, next, it will
nave entire responsibility for the pol
icies and administration of the gov
ernment, and cannot evade or excuse
its failure to perform the promises
it has made to the country. Under
.our political system it is always bet
ter to have one party control at
Washington than zo have divided au
"What the Gountry imperatively
needs now is subsidence of the pas
sions and hatreds engendered by the
?war and the partisan political appeals
that have followed. The country is
sick of political standards and con
troversies. It wants domestic as well
as international peace and i~ wants
restoration of that fine spirit of co
operation which made America in
vincible in war. We face domestic
and international problems of great
.gravity. The only way to solve them
is through co-operation. The highest
duty of the leaders of both parties
is therefore to promote better feel
ing among all classes of our people,
to refrain from unworthy appeals,
to class and racial prejudices and to
"bring to bear upon our serious prob
lems that dispassionate our intelli
gent consideration through which
alone there is promise of genuine
"The democratic party has suffer
ed a severe .but not disastrous defeat.
It is far from being dead: it is not
even seriously wounded. Throughout
our history overwhelming political
reverses have been followed by ex
traordinary political recoveries. So
long as the democratic party is true
to its mission of service to the com
mon people it will live. What we must
do now is to build up and strengthen
the party organization, not in the
interest of any individual or group
or faction, but for the cause of de
mocracy itself, and above all for ser
vice of country. It will not be difficult
through proper leadership and or
ganization to reinspire party enthu
siasm, to restore party unity, to main
tain party ideals and principles and
no regain popular confidence. To this
fcask democratic leaders must now de
vote themselves with unselfish pa
triotism and courage."
Plans for the Citadel Corner
Plans for the laying of the corner
stone of the Greater Citadel on
Thanksgiving Day are rapidly being
made, and the indications are that
the occasion will be one of the great
est in the history of Charleston.
The committee in charge of the
plans for the cornerstone laying is
.composed of the following citizens
from the alumni:
Thomas P. Lesesne, E. H. Poul
not, Jr., D. G. Dwight, H. E. Aaines,
William Gilliard, Milton Pearlstine,
John R. Thomas, Dr. W. Atmar
Smith, Jenkins M. Robertson and S.
The cornerstone will be laid by the
Grand Lodge of Masons of South
Carolina. This is a tribute to Orlan
do Sheppard, who has been for years
the chairman of the board of visitors
of the Citadel and Grand Master of
the Masons of the state.
Grand Master, T. B. Lanham, of
'Columbia, will be in charge of the
exercises, and the public is invited
to be present. It is expected that one
of the largest crowds in the history
of Charleston will be present to wit
ness the exercise.
After the cornerstone exercises
there will be a football game played
by the teams of the University of
South Carolina and the Citadel, and
more interest is being manifested in
this game than in any game played
in Charleston in years.
Jn the afternoon a public recep
tion will be held at the Country club,
3nd in the evening there will be a
banquet at which the principal speak
er will be Judge Mendel Smith.
Among the distinguished visitors
at the comorstone laying exercises
will be the governor of South Caro
lina and other state officials.
Just before the hour for the ex
ercises the officers of the alumni as
sociation, graduates of the institu
tion and visitors will march in a body
from a place just outside Hampton
park to the site of the exercises. Ma
jor Henry E. Raines will be marshal
She graduates of the Citadel made
splendid records in the world war,
and it is a fitting tribute to their ser
vice to the country that the state is
erecting the new home for the insti
Stores to Close. .
The stores of the retail merchants
of the city will be closed in honor of
the occasion, and it is expected that
other business houses will close also.
Ail citizens o fCharleston who are
.interested in the progress of the city
are interested in the growth of this
famous .institution, and it is certain
that they .will show their interest on
the day of the laying of the corner
It is believed that a great future
is in store for the Citadel. The tract
of 20 acres given by the city at
Hampton Park gives ample opportu
nity for expansion. It has not yet
been decided what shall be done with
the old Citadel buildings.
All Citadel men who are expecting
to attend the exercises should noti

Another Crop of Long Leaf
Pine Needed. x
Too little attention is given to the
forestry problems in the South. So
?far the policy has been to cut out
1 the standing growth of merchantable
timber and let the cut-over land go
with no thought of future timber
crops. There are thousands of acres
of rough poor land to which no bet
ter use could be put than keeping
it continuously in forest growth of
long leaf pine. Millions of acres of
cut-over land in the South can grow
another crop of valuable pine tim
ber before they are greatly needed
for cultivation purposes. It takes a
far-seeing farmer to figure on a crop
like this, but where the cut-over land
can be bought from lumber com
panies for very low prices, they can
frequently be made to pay for them
selves with the crossties and wood
that are on them, and will produce a
growth of timber in a few years that
will probably aggregate more than
the same land would grow if it were
planted in crops, especially in its in
The Department of Agriculture in
recent investigation has found the
two greatest enemies of reforesting
the long leaf pine to be hogs and
fires. On tracts where the hogs have
been kept out 6,000 long leaf pine
trees have been secured the first
year. Where the razor-backed hogs
have been allowed to roam the for
ests feeding on the roots and the
tender plants there were less than
a dozen long leaf saplings at the end
of the first year. Protection from
fires and adequate stock laws would
i*emove these difficulites. Our agri
cultural colleges and state depart
ments of agriculture will do well to
look into the future of the cut-over
rough pine land. Forestry specialists
could well be added to the extension
organization in the long leaf pine
states.-The Progressive Farmer.
