Capt? Wm. A. Courtenay was in Co
lumbia on tho Pith instant on a commit
too appointed by the .South Carolina
United Con f odor a to Veterans to present
tho resolutions on tho subject of school
books to tho Stato Hoard of Education.
Ho said in reply to inquirios, that tho
action of tho (Hand Anny of the Uoptlb
lic in this rotation is simply a demand
for unconditional surrender in our
schools, and tho solf-rcspeotof tho South
compels absoluto and prompt refusal. If
this is "an indestructible Union uf inde
structible States," as bc hoped ami
trusted it was, then there must ho
equality among equals, and loyalty lo
tho present Union and Constitution did
not carry with it thc denunciation and
misrepresentation of the Southern peo
ple in tho part they enacted in "the war
between tho States." Years ago he hail
soon in school books the question: Was
Con. l.eo a traitor? ami other similar
malters. The South owes it to tho ris
ing generation to absolutely forbid this
interference in their schools. The South's
material future is thoroughly assured.
Wro havo a gold crop in colton every
yoar of $350,000,000. Ooorgia, Tennes
see and Alabama have untold square
miles of iron ore, limestone rock and
coal, and aro actually making iron for
less money and mining coal at lower
prices than all tho world: yes, but there
are soino other things more precious
than those rich material results-tho
character and self-respect ol' the South
land must he held above all this great
aggregate of coining wealth and business
power-character and solf-respect must
bc taught in our schools from truthful
school books by Southern teachers. With
tho founding of Southon! publishing
houses of large capital and having our
public cotlfidouco, there will develop,
besides school book publication, oppor
tunities for Soulhern literature to make
its appearance. Northern publishers
very naturally favor 'heir immediate
constituents: the South owes ? to itself
to encourage not only tho making of
Southern school booka, bul in this con
nection to stipulate tor thc recognition
of Southern literature, and not have our
authors going from publisher to pub

Cotton Mills to Run on Short Time.
GltKKXVII.I.K, S. C., September 15.
Tho congestion of the colton goods
market in the far Hast and the high pre
vailing price of cotton have combined to
present tho most serious condition which
tho cotton mills of this country have
ever faced. A prominent mill president,
who is at tho head of more than ono
establishment and interested in many
others, to-day gave this statement to the
"Thc price of heavy goods is so much
below the cost of production mid etd ton
being scarce and late, thc price ranging
from 10? to ll couts, that all tho mills
on that class of goods in this section,
numbering more than twenty, and using
probably 226,000 bales of cotton per an
num, will commence next week to run
on short time in order to relieve the situ
ation. These mills have novorshut down
Ol' run on short time boforo in their whole
Another cotton mill president said two
weeks ago that the mills would shut
down il it were not for the demoraliza
tion id the labor and the suffering such
action would entail upon the operatives.
Tho action now agreed upon confirms
this statement and it is believed that if
the mills consulted only their own finan
cial advantage they would shut down
freely until the situation improves, but
running on short time will keep thc ope
ral ives at w<>rk until better limos comos.
Tho mills that will soon run oh short
time Include the largest and most impor
tant cotton factories in tho South, such
as Pol ZO r and Piedmont, which lind their
principal market in China and tho Ori
ent. The Hillls making fine goods are
not in tim list, though the high price of
cotton is affecting them also.

Clemson's Auspicious Oponing.
A special from Clemson College, dated
Soptombor l l, says: Yesterday morning
the formal opening exercises of tho col
lege took place in Memorial Hall. Tho
chapel was crowded with studonts and
visitors. After the usual devotional ex
ercises Dr. Hart/.og delivered tho annual
opening address *o tho young men. It
was strong and practical and delivered
in an earnest, eloquent manner. Ho
showed tho students how their futuro
depended on themselves; that a OollogO
means organized opportunities, and not
a brain supplying establishment; that
the college is not intended to make tho
man appear bigger to tho world, but to
make the world appear bigger to the
man; not to make a philosopher of the
fool, but to make mediocrity appreciate
genius. The object of tho college is to
direct, train and help to mako a well
rounded man. Ile impressed upon tho
young men thc fact that no ono can af
ford to trille hero, when th oro aro hun
