An exchange offers this bit of good
advice: "If you can't say a good word
for your town, keep your tongue. You
can do no good by talking against the
place. If you don't like it, move
away to some other town."
Notwithstanding thc great hue and
cry that has recently been raised
against the unlawful taking of human
life, the murderous work still goes on.
We can scarcely pick up a paper un
less it contains an account of murder.
3;rom many persons the complaint
is heard that the cost of living is in
creasing. Year hy year rents have
been rising, building material hus be
come dearer, whilo priccsiof foodstuffs
have steadily advanced, beef especial
ly being too expensive for people of
moderate means. "What were former
ly considered everyday necessaries aro
now classified as luxuries. Persons
disposed to be economical find it neces
sary to live on the plainest fare.
We believe it to be the duty of
every progressive citizen of Anderson
who feels any interest whatever in
the progress and future welfare of our
growing city io vote next Tuesday in
favor of ^issuing the bonds for perma
nent' Htrect improvements and the erec
tion of another sohool building. Both
thc school building and the street im
provements are badly needed, and tho
debt incurred for tho work will have
to be paid by tho eoming generation.
The Hampton memorial oommission
has issued an address to the people
of tho State in reference to contri
butions for the monument fund. Tho
eommiBBion outlines the history of the
movoment to orcot a monument, cites
tbe Legislature's action in appropiat
ing $20,000 on condition that $10,000
is raised by the publie, and earnestly
appeals to it to rai so the amount as
early as possible. Anderson County
should and must mako a liberal con
tribution to this fund. i
It is a most gratifying evidence of
a return ' to sanity upon tho part of
our former oities in tho North when
such a typical Republican newspapor
as *.he Nc.-Ycrk Tribune commonds un
stintedly the progress thoSouth is mak
ing in education through the medium
of common schools. It is even more
significant when it openly recognizes
and justly estimates the great difficul
ties wo have to meet and surmount in
broadening our educational systems
and minimizing our percentage of illit
eracy. More gratifying still is the
f aot that the Tribune believes that the
leaders of affairs in the South, having
taken up this task in a determined
manner, will perform it in strict jus
tice and impartiality.
Did you ever sell a person an arti
cle, or several artioles, on credit, and,
after having waited six months or a
year for your money, try to collect
the bill and find that the person
imagined the dobt paid "long ago?"
Did you ever Mrun up against" the
juan who "paid you the money on the
street and you must have forgotten to
mark it off tho book?" Did you ever
credit a person for a long period of |
time and notioe Tihen he finally did S
let you have your money, that he did
so grudgingly and with the air of a
man who was conferring a great favor?
Do people aB a rule consider that you,
do them a favor when you sell them
goods and wait for several months for
your money? Doee tho credit system
The President of the United States
has started on another huge swing
around the cirol? which he modestly
calls "au unpretentious little outing
for the purpose of avoiding public
ity." Let us Bee about that. The
schedule calls for aborc 200 speeches
and the party accompanying the Presi
dent consists of two secretaries, ono
dootor, three stenographers, twa secret
service men, one poet-naturalist, rep
resentatives of threo illustrated pa
pers, representatives of three press
associations, one official photographer,
and two telegraph operators. What a
delightfully original way of avoiding
publicity. It is surprising that bo
did not take along a brass band with
which to bunt those bears. The truth
of the matter is that the gentleman
who occupies the highest civic posi
tion in the country is never so happy
as whoa he is in the limelight on the
front bf the stage. This trip is a
stumping tour pure and dimple. Ho
wants that nomination a- heap moro
thap he wants those bears, and he is
not overlooking any bets that will pile
up the blue chips in front of him.

wealth of a country look in the tablo

OUR WASHINGTON LETTER.
Special Correspondence of Intelligencer.
Washington, D. C., April 4, 1003.
"Thu d?mocratie party cnn win and
will win in UM, it the convention ia
guided by common sense," said one ot'
thu leading dem?crata ot the nation to
me a lew dava ago. I cannot give his
name at this time because he is not
ready to be quoted, but he neverthe
less wants his opinion intered through
tlie press of the country in order that
the people may think them over.
"Tho democratic party bhonld nor
surrender to the so-called reorganiz
ers." continued this distinguished gen
tleman. By that I mean that we should
not nominate a mau for the presidency
who bolted the party organizations in
1890or in 1000. There nie fundamen
tal principles and tenets of faith in
tho democratic party which are im
mortal, and which will forever keep
tliia land n fre.o. and. independent re
public, and to which the vost majority
of the people ui the country subscribe,
and when they are not beclouded by
fanciful and extraneous theories the
result will show itsolf in a great demo
cratic majority, popular as well ns in
the electoral college. Tho democratic
position on the money question in 1800
and 1000 was a policy adopted nt that
time in order to relievo tho necessities
of the people and o?. the business world
that wore clamoring for money to do
tho business of tho country. It simply
involved tho quantitative theory of
money, and our every contention in
that regard has been amply proved by
subsequent events. Wo wanted and
needed more money in circulation and
advocated bi metallism us the remedy.
Thc remedy came, but lt came in the
shape of one metal only, superinduced
by the failure of crops in the old coun
tries, by tho war with Spain, and by
tho Hood of gold from the mines in
Alaska. Tho result was the same.
Prosperity returned to the country just
as we said it would if we could get
more basic money on which to do the
bus:ness of the country.
"We now have three times the vol
ume of money in oircnlation that we
had in 1800, and thc result is that we
have comparative prosperity where
then we had stagnation in all lines of
business. Therefore, the money ques
tion is no longer an issue.
"The question of special privilege,
the parent of monopoly, und opposi
tion to which is a fixed principle of
the democratic party, is one upon
which all democrats can unite, light
under the same banner and bring vic
tory. On this ?platform, constructed
ns above indicated; I think it will be
wiso for us to place a young and vig
orous democrat whose democracy IB
known by his works, whose name will
appeal to the laboring masses of the
country ns well as to the business in
terests and acceptable to both. We

dition that confronts us. The farmer
has not yet begun to feel the fact that
tho trusts are charging him more for
everything ho buys than they do the
foreign buyer of the same article, and
the majority of tho farmers are 'stand
patters,' and while those who are dem
ocrats probably would not vote the re
publican ticket, they might not realize
tho significance of the election. In
tho face of this fact we must nominate
a man who hus the confidence and can
carr} tho vast labor veto of the cities
of tho country. An overwhelming ma
jority of this voto will turn the scale
in mnny of the pivotal States of the
union, especially in thc East and mid
dle West, and bring victory to the
democratic party. With that kind of
leader on a platform that denounces
monopoly and special privilege in all
its ramifications and de mun ?B tari?' re
vision, trust control and, whore neces
sary, trust extinction, an income tax
and election of United States Senators
by vote ef the people direct, Tye can
and will win."
I have repeatedly stated in this cor
respondence that the so-called "anti
trust" bills which the republicans per
mitted to become laws last winter will
in no way benefit the people or curb
the trusts. There is nothing in tho
party record and nothing in the bills,
except the titles, that forebode evil to
the trusts, lt will, therefor?; Rurpriss
f ow mon to know that tho real authors
' of tho bills are tho trusts themselves
the very ones that tried to hoodwink
the people by sending telegrams to tho
Senators ordering them not to pa'iR the
"anti-trust" bills. Tho Now York
Journal of Commerce and Commercial
Bulletin of March 25, contains the story
of the authorship of tho Elkins anti-re
bate bill. A dispatch to that paper of
that date from Chicago says that at a
meeting of western railway executive
officials to discuss the Elkins law, it
was stated that A. J. Cassatt, president
of the Pennsylvania; Paul Morton. Sec
ond Yice-Presidont of the Santa Fe ;
and E. D. Kenna, First Yice-President
nnd general counsel of the same road,
aro authors of the bill. It is stated
that the first draft of the bill waa made
by Mr. Kenna and embodied the ideas
ot the three men named. This draft
was submitted to the President? the
Attorney-General and the chairman of
the Interstate Commerce Commission,
and subsequently was amended. Aa
finally introduced, however, the bill
was essentially the bill prepared from
the suggestions made by Messrs. Cas
satt, ?forton and Kenna, after repeated
conference? at the White House. Mr.
Morton says of the law: "I believe the
act will secure the maintenance of
freight and passenger rates, and this
will be of inestimable benefit to the
entire country, the railroads, the ship
pers and to consumers."
, There is no doubt in tho mind of any
sano man that the bill will benefit the
railroads, but his statement that it will
benefit shippers and consumers is n
gratuitous insult to the intelligence of
the people of the country.. The rail
roads can bo beneiitted only by in
creased freight rates, and these must
be paid by shippers and consumers.
The railroads will get the benefit and
the people will pay the freight. It is ?
case of "heads 1 win and tails you
Even in the face of theso facts the
republicans will still continuo to call
ino Elkins law an anti-trust measure.
The people can't beat auch a game so 1
long ns they allow the trusts and the I
republican party to shnfHe and deal
the cards and hold the stakes as well.
I said Borne time afro, in this cor
respondence, that the President, would
call an extra session of the 68th Con
gress some time in the early part of
next September. I missed it about a
month, as it is now given ont from an
official scarce that the extra session
will be called early in October. It is
given out as the ostensible reason that
this extra eession is to be called for the
purpose of disposing finally of the
Jaban reciprocity treaty by obtaining
the concurrence of the House of Repre
sen ta ti vee, which the democrats com
pelled the republican Senators who
were working in tho interest of the
Sugar Trust? to agree to before they 1
would vote to ratify the treaty. The
real reason why this extra session is to
be called was given in this correspon
dence some time ago when it was Rta
I ted that J. Pierpont Morgan had called
on the President and informed him
that Wall Street could not hold ont
longer than the fall and thal there
must be some legislation in its inter
est, preaumably the Aldrich bill, or
innre- would be a smash-up and possi
bly a panic Wallstreet continues to
dict?t* tin- |Mtlicy ?it tili? admiuistra
Unless all signs fail, tbey may aa
well start in on thor financial bill
when tho session meets, because they
ar< not goic (t to get through the con
current resolutiou ot' tho House- en
horsing the Cuban treaty by December
31, except itcarry with it thc elimination
ot the differential ou relined sugar.
Tho democrats have made up their
minds to fight for that in the interest?
cf the people. There are about forty
live republicans from tho beet sugar
States, and if the democrats can round
up about twenty kickers who will stick
the House will send the Senate the
Cuban reciprocity proposition for the
second time with a knife under the
rib of the Sugar trust. That will kill
it, for those trust-owned Senators dare
not pass a thing that will take about
$0,000,000 a year out of the pockets of
one of their bosses. If the House
democrats do not succeed in getting
tho differential off, then the Senate
democrats will talk on the tariff ques
tion until the end of tho extra and reg
nigr' sessions Mark thc prediction.
