Letter tu Mr. P. K. McCnlly, Jr.,
Dear Sir : We cannot repeat too often
that it's folly to buy a thin paint, be
cause when you do so you are paying
,twice as much as its worth for a lot of
linseed oil contained therein. You add
5-b to .'t-4 gallon of oil to ench gallon of
L. &, M. Paint. That's the secret of
its low actual cost. It contains more
white lead and oxide of zinc than any
other paint made. We much wish that
you would get prices, color cards and
combinations from Messrs. F. B. Crny
ton & Co.

Aftei paying a \ *?ii lo Charleston
mid inspecting lit*- magnificent Imposi
tion tivc?'v loyal South Carolinian must
necessarily fool proud of his State and
its wonderful resources. Our entire
Statt; is filled with manufacturing en
terprises of almost every kind, and we
venture the assertion that if a Chinese
wall was placed around the entire State
the people of South Carolina could ex
ist without the balance of the world.
Within our borders wo can produce all
that is necessary for food, raiment and
the well-being of a happy people. Uur
educational institutions will compare
favorably with any State in the Cnion.
Such heing the ease, then we ask the
quest ion. "if you area patriotic son of
South Carolina and earnestly desire to
aid in the furl her upbuilding ol' your
Suite, wh.\ do you send your money
away from home.1 In answer to this
question some merchants will say:
"We c;m buy tu belter advantage- out -
side oi the Stale than within ils bord
ers." An* you aware ol the fact that
the jobbing trade ol' South Caro
lina can meet all competition'.' If
Iheh prices or terms do not compare
favorably with Northern concerns why
cannot all ol these mal tors be arranged
by thorough organization? There are
numbers ol small manufacturing in
dustries throughout South Carolina
struggling lor a living, while our own
people ate stabbing them in the back
by patronizing Northern concerns, and
either failing or refusing to give them
the proper support.
11 all of the people of South Carolina
wer?; determined to give all homo en
terprises the preference, and buy noth
ing outside of the Slate which could
hi! bought tit home, there would spring
tip a tide of industrial prosperity which
would shake the State of South Caro
lina from the mountains to the sea
board; our revenue from taxes would
increase, to a marvellous extent, and
every man, woman and child in the
State would benefit thereby.
Some folks will give us the old
threadbare, cobwebbed excuse: "Those
jobbers in sleepy old Charleston have
no get-up-and-get about them and,
while wo would like to trade with
them, we can't." If this excuse has
any foundation in fact then where do
you get your money from? Isn't it
strange that the bankers should bo so
enterprising while the wholesale mer
chants are to the other extreme?
Can any reasonable person inspect
the South Carolina Inter-State and
West Indian Exposition, the product
of the business men of "Sleepy Old
Charleston,1' without at least reaching
the conclusion that the old city has
awakened from her slumber and, after
a long and refreshing nap, she is in for
business to a finish. Charleston has
met you halt way ami if you lovo your
State us you should it now behooves
you to meet her the other half.
Let by-gones be by-gones and let us
all get together. The men you once
disagreed with down there have either
forgotten nil about it or are dead aud
buried. The younger generation has
now taken hold and they have already
demonstrated to the people of South
Carolina that they are hustlers.
We want to seo the whole of the peo
ple of South Carolina living together
as one happy family. Let us all meet
together as brother to brother, bear
each other's burdens, share each oth
er's joys, defend each other and pledge
ourselves to aid each other in every
movement looking toward the upbuild
ing of South Carolina. Let us give
more time to business and less to poli
tics. Our business may slip away from
us, but the politician we have with us
This, you may say, is good theory,
but it lacks practicability. Very well
then let ub get down to something like
the practical part.
It is very generally conceded that the
very best results nre always attained
by a thorough organization. Wo
have given the matter considerable
thought and we believe that an organi
zation can be effected
plan of organization.
Let the Governor appoint from each
county in South Carolina live public
spirited business men to meet at the
Charleston Exposition on some day to
be suggested by the Exposition au
thorities and effect a State organiza
tion; call it, if you will, "The State
Hoard of Trade," let the State board
at the meeting provide for the organi
zation of county boards of trade in
every county in the State. Each county
board to furnish one State executive
Let the State board establish perma
nent headquarters at some point in the
State. The person in charge of head
quarters can issue at least weekly
prices current bnsed upon reports fur
nished him by jobbers and manufac
turers of the State, these reports to be
sent every merchant iu the State. All
merchants to have the privilege of
using the manager of State headquar
ters as purchasing agent without com
All complaints of grievances against
any merchant, manufacturer or banker
in the State to be acted upon and arbi
trated by the State Executive Commit
tee or a sub-committee thereof.
Let every momber of the county and
State boards pledge themselves, all
things boing equal, to support and
maintain the manufacturing and mer
cantile enterprises of South Carolina
in preference to all foreign concerns.
With a State organization the matter
of freight rates can better be adjusted
than with individuals. Each county
would have a local board of trade at
which all business matters could be
discussed and they would have abso
lute protection against what thoy may
Tho State organization may be main
tained by a per capita tax on the entire
membership or upon tho manufacturers
and jobbers of the State. '
