PROGRESS or THE SOUTH.
Thc development of the South is
treated in an interesting way b> a
writer in the New York Sun. lt is
poiutcd out hy this writer that the
South has a tee million bale cotton
crop, a twenty-five million ton coal
output, a 5,000,000 ton pig iron pro
duction, aside from lumber, fruit, to
bacco and other products. Manufac
turing enterprises have taken the
place of the old time plantations and
Lave established new channels of
employment for the people. After
describing these condition.'-, thc con
writer says :
The results of all this are manifest
not alone in the cities, but in almost
every town, village and hamlet. New
buildings appear everywhere. Sewer
nystcras, water works, electric plants
for lighting and for trolley lines are
fast becoming as much of a necessity
as in thc North and West, and thc
South has the money to pay for them.
Municipal bond issues have reached u
huge aggregate and have, in general,
found ready salo at good prices, often
in thc immediate local market. South
ern porta have done an enormously
increased business, and southern rail
ways have been hard pressed to han
dle their traflie. The establishment
of these new conditions upon a foun
dation of unquestionable firmness
opens a broad vista. The South has
not yet been an objective point for the
home seeker, to whom it really utters
BO much that is attractive, lt is to
be hoped that the day will soon como
when its many advantages for set
tlers will command wider attraction
and draw to it a few millions of those
whose industry would contribute still
further to southern development and
A cry is going up from ail over the
South for cotton pickers. This is the
real "negro problem."

ThiB was certainly a year when can
didates ran almost neck and neck in
the primaries. In a number of coun

It is stated that a citizen of Texar
kana, Texas, has returned his dog for
taxation at $1,000. Dogs aro rich
property down in "them parts," but,
paradoxically enough, no native is too
poor to be an extensive holder of this
species of property.
Cotton experts in New Orleans
and in New York predict that cotton
will go higher. They daim that
cotton is really worth 12J cents, and
that those who oan hold their crops
or a part of them, will get higher
prices. We hope their forecast is
Next Monday is the last day for
registering, and those Democratic
voters who have not done so should
qualify themselves on that day to
exercise the right of suffrage at the
general election in November. It is
essential that every Democrat should
east his vote at that time.
The example set hy Gov. Terrell, of
Georgia, ic offering substantial re
wards for the names of lynchers with
evidenoe to eonviot is a promising
step toward the solution of the nation's
most serious problem. It will not,
perhaps, put a stop to lynching but
it will materially deorease it.
Labor Leader McCabe is quoted as
saying that the "tariff has been of no
benefit whatever to the workers of
this country." The tariff is not de
signed to benefit any olass except
some of the manufacturers and it has
done that at the expense of everybody
ehe. The laborers of the country
should try and change to an adminis
tration that will give the country a
tariff law that is just and equitable to
every class. The Democratic party is
pledged to do that and it will do it.

Judge Parker has issued his letter
of acceptance as the nominee of the
Democratic party for the offioo of
President, and it is a very plain, prac
tical paper. He takes up the prin
ciples and platform of the Democratic
party and they are clearly and con
cisely defined. It is free of partisan
r^use and there is no attempt to
evade issues. In short, it is just
such a paper as was expected from
Judge Parker, and it will have its
effect on the intelligent independent
voter throughout the country.
The activity manifested by the Re
publican leaders these days speaks
eloquently of the anxiety they un
doubtedly feel over the outcome of
thc presidential eleotion. While cer
tain of the Republican newspapers,
following their usual practioe, aro
claiming everything in sight and
olaiming it with confidence, President
t Roosevelt' and his political advisers
are not attempting to fool themselves.
They realizo that, the November b it
tie is to be a.fiith't\for the ?life of thc
gi o. p., and that it.must be mads
under conditions highly* favorable to

As was announced in these dis
patches on September 20, the battle
began bet?re daybreak on September

garrison of !'ort Arthur, alter the en
joyment of weeks ot comparative
security, awoke to the thunderous re
ports ot artilleiy ulong tholino extend
ing from the west of Itz niountaiuH to
Riiilung and Kikwau mountains.
This was but a preface to tin; assault
which was destined to result in the
capture of three new and important
Russian positions, together with six
small but annoying forts lying between
ShiiHbiyou and Ribbing, mountain.
During the day and night of the 10th,
and until noon ot the20th, tho bombard
ment continued without cessation, and
the many shells tailing from quartets
which previously liad been silent, made
it obvious that tho Japanese had ut
last succeeded either m mounting
many heavy guns in new positions ol
in strengthening their obi positions.
Tho infantry lighting during this
period was comparatively trivial.
At noon on September 20, tho Japa
nese right und center, the tonner be
ing to tho west and tho latter to tho
east of the railroad, commenced tho
advance. The troops made use of the
trenches and in frequent natural cover
that lay iii their way.
The small torts to tho south of Shush
iyen resisted this advance but brielly,
their garrisons not being strong nu
merically. S i nco the beginning of tho
bombardment tho artillery tho from
I'ort Kuropatkin had been growing j
steadily weaker, and, it having become
apparent that it had been practically
silenced, tho Japanese assaulted tho
fort. Fort Kuropatkin is situated to

At 5 o'clock of the afternoon of the

On the evening of Sept. 21st, at 7:00
o'clock, quite a number of friends and
relatives gathered at the hospitable
home of Mr. and Mrs. Thomas R. Har
ris, near Fair Play, S. C., to witness
the marriage of their sister, Miss Hat

The beautiful and impressive ceremony
was performed by Rc v. J. F. Ander

The bride was most becomingly at
tired in an exquisite gown of dark blue
crepe cloth with trimmings of ecru
lace and white chiffon. In her hand
she carried a ioveiy bouquet of white
carnations. The handsome groom wore
the customary foll dress suit. The
parlor, with its festoons of ivy and
other not plants, presented a scene of
rare beauty, the color scheme being
white and green. And now our pen
almost fails us when we attempt to de
scribe the dining hali with ita table
ladened with the most lucious fruits of
almoBt every variety, together with
every delicacy that could tempt the
eye and please the appetite of an epi
curean. The room was tastefully deco
rated with American Beauty roses and
carnations, the color scheme being
white and pink.
The bride waa the recipient of many
useful and valuable presents, promi .
neut among these waa an elegant case
of solid silver knives, forks and spoons,
a present from her brother, Conductor
J. S. Lee, of Birmingham, Ala.,
We wish to congratulate the young
ladies present-Miss Bertie Smith, of
Bounty Land, and Misses Hattie
Wright and Helen Thompson, of Fair
Play, for their untiring energy and ex
cellent taste in arranging the decora
tions for this happy occasion ; also.
Mr. and Mrs. Harris for their unbound

their guests. This is an ideal homo,
Mrs. Anderson is the daughter of
our esteemed friend, J. J. Lee, Sr., of
this place, and is one of Oconee Coun
ty's most excellent young ladies, pos
sessing all those graces of mind and
heart that tend to. noble womanhood.
Mr. Anderson is one of our neighbor
county's most prosperous farmers, and
is indeed fortunate in his selection of
a life companion. Oconee's loss is An
derson's gain. May the choicest of
Heaven's blessings be theirs, and may
there be just enough clouds to cause a
glorious sunset. A Quest.
It was with feelings of more than or
dinary pleasure that we accepted an
invitation to be present lost Thursday,

The first fireater South Carolina
State Fair will be held on the new
grounds recently purchased by th??
State Agricultural arni Mechanical
Society, and which have been fitted up
with all modern improvements for the

thirty-sixth Fair since the reorganiza
tion of the Society after the civil war.
and will be held the hist week In Oc
tober, from the morning of the 25th
to the evening of the HKth.
Every county In the state should be
represented In the exhibits, for there ls
no doubt hut what great good results
I to all the exhibitor!! at every Fair, the
premiums being only a small part of
the benefits. A great many farmers
and stock breeden count only what
prizes are won, but this should not be
the case, because the greatest benefits
are obtained In advertising what you
have for ?ile and in meeting with the
progressive men from other sections
of the State and obtaining their ideas
and seeing the results of their
methods. The management of the Fair
ls making every jfTort to secure new
exhibitors. Arrangements have been
made by which freight charges arc
paid on all exhibits from this State,
free stalls aro provided for stock, and
free bedrooms uro furnished ail ex
hibitors who are willing to stay on the
grounds all the time.* Numerous res
taurants on the grounds furnish meals
at all hours of the day or night at
reasonable prices, and feed for stock
ls delivered right at the stalls at the
regular market prices, and besides,
there are olllcers who look after all
exhibitors and see that every one ls
satisfactorily located. All exhibits
may . b_e sh Uiped. djiecjjy to the

provision for all the cars. Solid cars
should be billed ''Secretary State

rushed right through tn destination.
Some exhibitors may think they can
not make their entries properly, but
Secretary Love will take pleasure in
giving all necessary aid, provided ap
plication is made to him prior to 10
o'clock Tuesday morning, as the Fair
opens at that hour and no entries can
be made later. AU exhibitors of live
stock should arrive on the grounds not
later than Friday or Saturday before
the Fair, so us to get the stock quiet
after shipping and get them to eating
well before being put Into the show
The premium list 1B very liberal this
year, and it 1B to be hoped that the
management will meet with success
in inducing a very large number of
new exhibitors to attend the Fair,
so that the Fair will become repre
sentative of every section of the State
ana of all the resources of Carolina.
Information and premium lists will be
cheerfully supplied upon application
in person or ba/ letter to Secretary

thinking of exhibiting, or who have
fine products or stock, make up their
