Thc new president of the Western
Union Telegraph company began his
career as a messenger boy. This
eeeuis to upset the theory that tiic
messenger boy never gets there.
Wc are told that a gentleman is
visiting various sections in Anderson
and Abbeville counties buying poplar
trees to ship to Germany. This leads
us to rcm?rk that if the landholders
of large estatCB continue to aliow
tenants to cut and sell ol? thc land
there will bc no poplars nor any other
kind of trees for sale in a few years.
Mr. H. L. Watson, former edi'or of
the Greenwood Index, has assumed
editorial control of the Spartanburg
Daily Herald, which was recently pur
chased by a stock company with Mr.
A. K. Gonzales, of Columbia, at itr.
head. Mr. Watson's editorial breth
ren gladly welcome him back into
their ranks. The Herald is sure to
prosper under his management.

lt is generally conceded that Henry
Timrod was the most distinguished
literary chatactcr that this Stfcto has
ever produced, and when wo consider
"how little has been done by South
Carolina to honor his name, we are
forced to conclude that fame is but
short lived. It is with great pleasure,
therefore, that wc note that a public
library in Columbia ?B to bo named
after thc dead poet. The idea is an
excellent one, and Columbia is to be
commended for it.
The disclosures that are being made
in the management of the Equitable
Life Insurance Company of New York
may prove a blessing in disguise to
the policy holders in all iusuranco
companies. Thc question simply re
solves itself into this: if the lviui
table can accumulate such a large sur
plus under its ext avagant manage
ment, why is it that life insurance
is so high? Lower rates of insur
ance is thc answer that is sure to

United States Supremo Court affect
the sixty-Bix hour law in this Slate?
The decision is regarded as one one of
ir-reaching importance on account of
ts effect upon legislation in the cot
)c mill States. There was consid?r
?e agitation last year for the pas
Ige of a ten hour law, and what is
?own as theoToole bill was defeated
a narrow vote. Since it hau been
icided that the laws of this kind are
unconstitutional, the question natural
isasses whether it Will be necessary
trJbring another case from this State
to! settle ?the eleventh hour law in
folce here. The matter is being gen
.erllly discussed, and it is said several
prominent 'attorneys are interesting
th mselves in tho question. It is
als ) believed that the decision will
ba e its effect upon the political cam
pa gu next year, as this would have
bei c one of the principal issues.
Bobert Hunter, in his book on pov
erty, estimates the number of the mis
erably poor in this country at about
10,000,000. And he is probably not
far from right. At first hearing it
gives one a shook to think that of the
inhabitants of thia prosperous land
one in every eight ie on or near the
pauper line. But on examination the
faet, while remaining distressing and
deplorable, is seen to be not disheart
ening. Most of our great poverty is
io our larger oities, and, as Mr. Hun
ter points out, more than half thc
population offgthirty-three of our
largest oities is.foreign boro. Further,
,eince 1S80 DO less than 12,000,000 im
migrants have come here, most of
them the poor in pocket and broken
in spirit. It is amazing how rapidly
we teach these"newcomers hope and
the way to prosperity. But-we
ought to do still .better. We ought
to remove the last unjust obstacle to
comfort from the pathway of smug
glers, whether foreign or native born.
Fitzhugh Lee, prominent as a lead
er in the army of tho^Confederaoy,
died in Washington Friday after a short
illness from apoplexy. He was a
member of the famous^Lee family of
Virginia and a nephew of Robert E.
Lee. He was graduated from West
Point in 1856, but lieft" the United
States army on the outbreak of the
war to cast his fortunes with the Con
federacy. He"oserved as a Cavalry
commander in all thc campaigns of the
Army of North?rntVirgtnia, rising to
the rank of Major General in August,
1863. After thc war he served one
term as governor of Virginia, and when
the Spanish-American ?war began he
was acting as Consul General in Ha
vana, Cuba. General Lee's admirable
judgment was admirably.displayed in
thal critical period, and when hostili
ties began he was appointed a Major
General in the Volunteer army. He
Continued in the service of the United
States army after the struggle was
over, and at the time uf his death
held the rank of Major General.
General Lee was greatly admired and
loved by the people of the South, and
in the North ne had won the public
esteem. A true Southern gentleman,
a fine type of the cavalier, an able
soldier and ntatesman, he will be sin
cerely mourned in the South where
the name of Lee is regarded with so
