Taft*3 election means four years
more of plundering of the people by j
the trusts and big monopolies.
Mr. Simmons, the man who say
he has brought back prosperity,
claims the credit for taming Teddy.
When two such eminent "yellows"
as Teddy and Willie are yoked to- j
gether, decent people had better hide
.Teddy's hot air trust busting ma
chine is no longer in use. It fooled
the people and they elected Taft, butj
the trusts are still in full blast.
They have succeeded in round-in.
up the wild young fellows who rules
Germany. Now if some one will
lasso Teddy the world will be safe.
Teddy says if he had been a can-j
dldate instead of Taft he would, have j
carried Georgia. This shows that
Teddy some times talks through his j
Bryan polled ten thousand more
votes than any other candidate in
the late election in South Carolina.
That don't look like he lacked po;r-j
ularity in this State.
When Taft and Rockefeller meet
at Augusta in January they * will
have a good hearty laugh at the: nea?. I
way in which they fooled the Amer-j
lean people on November 3.
Chas. Francis Adams makes the
confession that he is a "tariff thief |
and that he has a government 'li
cense to steal." And there are oth
ers who are not quite as frank as j
The farmer will soon find out
whether Taft's election spells pros
perity for them or not. They will
only have to wait until the gigantic
fertilizer trust just formed gets into
Root declares that he will not
scramble for the New York Senator
ship. There is no need for him to
do so. as Teddy has already given
the boys tT.eir orders to see that
Root is elected.
Hlsgen, who headed the Hearst
Presidential. ticket in the late elec
tion, says he is out of politics for
all time. After his utter repudia
tion at the polls we are not sur
prised at this decision.
Chas. Francis Adams says the ben
eficiaries of the tariff system are hogs
and thieves, and that he. as a bene
ficiary of the law, has a government
license to steal. As Mr. Adams is a
Republican in good and regular
standing he ought lo know.
We are getting real worried about
John Temple Grawes, who repre
sented Hearst in the late Presidential
campaign. Since the returns from
Georgia has been heard from be
seems to have crawled in a hole and
.pulled the hole in after him.
Hf e have received a copy of Gov.
^psel's Thanksgiving Proclamation
piost beautifully gotten up in book
let form. It is the handsomest thing
of the kind we have ever a,een, and
reflects credit on the State job de
partment, where it was gotten up.
During the late Presidential cam
paign the Charleston Evening Post
predicted that Roosevelt would be
working for Hearst in less than a
year, and it now looks as if the pre
diction will be verified, as it is said
Hearst has offered Teddy a job at
an attractive salary. ?
The Aiken Journal and Review
says. "If Mr. Taft should come :c>
Aiken and occupy the White Hous?
of Barnard's on the Whiskey Road
it. would prepare hini lor occupancy
of the White House in Washington."
Mr. Barnard's White House might
be .all right, but we draw the line
on "Whiskey Read." No President
of the United States should bei, domi
ciled on a road with such a name.
Old man. Carnc:gre. after plunder-'
ing the American' people Wut of a
I'illlon and more dollars with the aid!
of the tariff laws, now says they
ought to be revised in the interest
of the people. Lingering on the.
brink of the grave, tha old fellow
sees things very different from the
way he use to see them. As the
shadows lengthen he finds that his
piled up millions are not much ser
vie3 to him..
Hearst Called on Roosevelt.
While in Washington the other
evening William Randolph Hearst
called on President Roosevelt at
the White House. What Mr. Hearst
said to Mr. Roosevelt and what Mr.
Roosevelt said to Mr. Hearst are not
matters of record, but says the
Charleston Post, it is not hard to
guess that there was some nice per
siflage between these two managers
of things political and an exchange
of felicitations at the result of the
recent election, in which Mr. Roose
velt's candidate was successful in
some measure by reason of Mr.
Hearst's activity against his oppo
Hearst seems to have a short
memory. Only two years ago the
Hon. EUhu Root, extended the Presi
dent's compliments 'J) Mr. Hearst,
who was then a candidate for Gov
ernor of New York as the nominee
of the Democratic party in that State.
On the first of November at Utica,
Mr. Root delivered an address In
advocacy of Mr. Hughes' candidacy
against Mr. Hearst, in which he
literally burnt up the yellow rene
gade. In that speech Mr. Root said:
President Roosevelt and Mr.
Hearst stand as far as the poles
asunder. Listen to what Presi
dent Roosevelt himself has said
of Mr. Hearst and his kind. In
President Roosevelt's first ' mes
sage to Congress, in ?speaking of
the assassin of McKinley he spoke
of him as inflamed uy the reckless
utterances of those who on the
stump and in the public press
appeal to the dark and evil spir
its of malice and greed, envy and
sullen hatred. The wind is sowed
by the men who preach such doc
trines, and they can not esoape
their share of responsibility for
the whirlwind that is reaped.
This applies alike to the delibe
rate demagogue, to the exploiter
of sensationalism, " and to the
crude and foolish visionary who
for whatever reason apologizes
?for crime or excites aimless dis
Mr. Root went on to say he said
the above by the authority of Presi
dent Roosevelt, who wished it to be
distinctly understood that in penn
ing these words, with the horror of
President McKinley's murder fresh
before him, he had Mr. Hearst
specifically in mind. Mr. Root rub
bed it in by going on to say by the
authority of Mr. Roosevelt that what
he thought of Mr. Hearst then, he
thinks of Mr. Hearst now. The plain
English of this is that President
Roosevelt accused Hearst of being
indirectly the murderer of President
This was pretty heavy on the yei
low renegade, but we think he de
Hearst, in calling on Roosevelt, is
disposed to overlook the insult of
fered him by the President two years
ago, but it is there all the same.
No doubt he called to receive Rose
veit's thanks for the part he played
in the late Presidential campaign.
While Roosevelt may have thanked
him, we will wager something hand
some that he folds' Hearst in greater
contempt than ever before. Hearst
has strutted his little brief hour oa
the stage of human action, and from
now on he will be the laughing stock
of the country. In the late campaign
he crawled out of the small end of
the horn and he will never be able
to live down his disreptable acts.
. Martin Luther.
November 10 was the four hun
dred and twenty-fifth anniversary of
the birth of Martin Luther, one of
the greatest men when results are
considered that ever lived in the
world. The great event was duly
celebratad by the great church he
established, and should have been
celebrated by every Protestant church
in the world, as they all owe their
existance to the bravery of this
great man. Martin Luther was born
November 10, 1483, of humble par
entage, and became one of the great
men of all time because of the ef
fect the reformation, of which he
was the father, had upon the nations
of the earth. He was a learned man
as well as a man of- action.
At. we said above, Martin Luther,
was the founder of the Protestant
church, although of the various sub
divisions into which these protes
tants against the mother church
were split the Lutherans now form
only one branch. The adherents of
the Lutheran faith throughout the
world number about 150.000,000, of
which only about one half, however,
bear the name of Lutheran, the oth
er half being known by various other
names. It was Luther's desire to
have his religious followers called
Evangelical, and by this name the
church he founded is called official
ly in his native country.
In the United States the various
Lutheran bodies comprise about 2,
000,000 communicants, and hav* 14,
000 churches. In every country of
the world they are represented, and
in all these churches and church
communities Luther's birthday is ob
served in honor of the founder of this
church. The life of Luther is worth
studying by every young man. It
would inspire them to higher and
grander things. He determined *o
do a srreat work and did it regard
less of what it cost him.
In our last issue we showed how
the News and Courier was already
beginning to hedge on its prediction
of great prosperity that would come
with the election of Mr. Taft. The
News and Courier is not alone in
seeing the fading away of the prom
ised Taft prosperity. A dispatch
from New York says that J. J. Hill,
the big railroad magnate, while in
clined to view business and the in
dustrial outlook optimistically, de
clares the ??matters must move slow
ly." He says "things are moving
forward all ov^r the country, but it
is not well to move forward too rap
idly and we must not put. too much,
on Brother Taft's shoulders at once.
A good deal of work remains to ))h
done. Mr. Tai't can not do it ail.
j Several millions of people must co
! operate in doing it." Mr. Hill need
not worry himself. The trusts and
big corporations will see to it that
the prosperity chorus is loudly sung
while they keep their hands in the
pockets of the people and rcb them.
But what we started out to say was
that Mr. Hill is only "inclined" to
the opinion that Republican prosper
ity is on its way, and therefore ne
hedges. The little "me, too," Re
publican prosperity chorus singers
scattered over the country will have
to change thr-ir tune.
Three Time*; a Week.
On and after January 1 The Times
and Democrat will be issued three
times a week instead of twice as at
present. This will give our sub
scribers a paper every other day in
stead of every three days, and give
them an up-to-date news service.
The rural free delivery- system car
ries the mail daily rignt to the door
of most people living in the country,
and causes many of them to want a
paper that comes oftener than once
or twice a week. Besides, a paper
issued three times a week will help
all the rural mail routes in the coun
ty by increasing the number of pieces
of mail handled by them each week.
At the named time The Times and
Democrat will ba issued on Tuesday,
Thursday and Saturday at the same
price we charge for the twice aweek
paper, $1.50 per annum. This will
be less than one cent per copy, as a
subscriber will recrive one hundred
and fifty-six papers each year for
which he would pay only one
hundred and fifty cents. This makes
The Times and Democrat the cheap
est country paper in the State.
Transient suhscribers in the city will
be furnished The Three Times a
Week Times and Democrat at five
cents per week, payable every four
weeks. The three papers will con
tain from two to three times as much
reading matter each week as any
other paper published in Orangeburg
How It Got Here.
The rumor that the prosperity that
was to come if Bryan was defeated
and Taft elected had arrived is now
most positively and emphatically con
firmed by Mr. E. C. Simmons, presi
dent of the National Prosperity As
sociation.. The Charleston Evening
Post says: J'Mr. Simmsons ought to
know because, according to his an
nouncement, he personally conducted
prosperity back to its deserte-l
American haunts. Mr. Simmons says
the association made a change in
public sentiment toward th'e rail
roads, especially in the South and
Southwest, and indeed President
Roosevelt to stop his flood of messag
es to Congress and other things hav
ing the appearance of being an at
tack upon railroads or other large
corporations. The tSandard Oil
Company will doubtless be glad to
hear this latter news. 'Muck rakers,'
says Mr. Simmons, 'have ceased to
show their heads; demagogues have
quit talking, and a very 'healthy state
of mind prevails toward these in
dustries; whereas previously to our
work was a vicious antagonism
clearly evident among the masses of
the people, most of whom held their
views or opinions without giving the
subject proper thought.' Mr. Sim
mons says the work of the associa
tion/'is completed. Indeed, says the
Post, since it seems to have brougbt
the millennium, not only its work but
all work must be completed.
The farmers of tue South have
been told that the election of Mr.
Bryan did not spell prosperity for
them, but that the election of Mr.
Taft did. Taft has not yet been
inducted into office, but the kind of
prosperity that the Republican party
has been bringing to the farmers for
the last 20 or 3 0 years is on its way.
The announcement has been made
of the formation of a seventy-flve
million dollar fertilizer trust, which
will take in all the independent com
panies now operating in this country
and Europe. This is a sign of the
business activites and enterprises
that waited on the election of Mr.
Taft to the Presidency. Had Bryan
been elected this gigantic combina
tion against the farmers never would
have been formed. As soon as this
advance agent of Republican pros
perity gets well under way our farm
ers can make up their minds to pay
higher prices for their fertilizers,
which is a brand of prosperity that
they will not relish. The Republican
party is the originator and protector
of trusts and monopolies, and under
Taft, as under a.. Republican Presi
dents, they will have, full and un
checked swing. The farmer* have
been selected as the first victims of
the new era of Republican prosper
ity under the Taft regime but they
will not be the last.
Easy to Run a Newspaper.
People think it is easy to run a
newspapers. One week's experience
would change the opinion of most
people on this subject. Did you
ever count the words in a column
of ordinary newspaper print? Well,
there is about a thousand words in
a column. Suppose you ?it down and
write a thousaud words upon sonu;
subject and then another thousand
and another until yen hate written
eight or ten thousand. Try it, and
see if it is right easy. Keep that
gait up for a month, a year and se-J
if it is easy. Then chn?e a ninglo
local item all over town, and after
you have gotton the facts all righ',
condense them into a few lines, an
hour's work tbrvt can be read in
a few seconds. Do this for a dozen
items that seem insignificant ct'r:
they are printed, but which you know
are important; then have the it?Bi?
criticised and Inaccuracies pointed
out to you whea it i? too lata to
correct them. Oh, yee, it is easy to
run a newsi^ajier.
AFTER THE BATTLE
EDITOR HOLMES SIZES UP THE
In a Broadside Manner in His Paper,
The Barnwell People, That Reads
Like Epic Poem.
The election is over. The shout
ings' are hushed. The fireworks are
burned to ashes. The smoke hau
gone away, and "where are we at?"
Hindsight is better than foresight,
and as we see the course of the
political cyclone of the first Tues
day in November, 1908, we recogniz.
that the truth of the popular quota
tion, "You can fool all the people
some of the time, some of the peo
ple all the time, but you can't fool
all the people all the time," needs
the addition that generally enough
of them to carry out the. plans and
purposes of the men who pull the
fires and get their axes ground can
be fooled?or are natural fools.
The defeat of the Democracy in
the presidential race was a national
misfortune approaohing the degree
of a disaster, as time will show.
The prestige of the president, the
awful power of his administratio t
the character and ability of the pres
ident-elect, Mr. Taft, the general
ship of Chairman Hitchcock and the
fervid eloquence of the Republican
spellbinding speakers may be coa
sidered?as they have the surface
appearance of being?the cause of
Mr. Taft's triumph, but a deeper
analysis, a digging down to the
truth, will show that the almighty
dollar biased the verdict (of the
American people. ,
The money power stood pat. The
Standard Oil Company, the richest
and most powerful trust on earth,
that exacts toll from every lamp that
burns in parlor or sick room, every
stove that cooks a scanty meal, every
gasoline engine that pumps water,
cuts wood, drives automobile, grinds
corn or gins cotton, that has cinched
the forethought reservoirs of oil
stored by a beneficent providence for
the general good ages ago?and so
Rockefeller declared for Taft. He
means to keep the monopoly that he
The steel trust that has cornered
the essential metal made in the
morning of time by the good God for
the uses of his children, a corpora
tion that exacts tribute from every
atom of that metal, from the break
fast knife, from the hoe and plow
that tills the fields, through the long
catalogue to the battleships that
plow the deep, proclaimed through
Andrew Carnegie, its master spirit,
The railroad system, that ties the
States as the spider weaves its.weo
among the rose trees of the garden,
threatened the suspension of im
provement and extension in ease '?f
Taft's defeat, and its thousands of
uniformed dependents took the hint,'
and Harrlman proved that Roose
velt's judgment of him as "a practi
cal man" was a true bill.
And the great financiers, the me.t
who control the circulation of money
as the miller regulates the flow of
water or the Impact of steam, pre
dicted a panic in case of Bryan's elec
tion, and great fear came Into the
hearts of the merchant princes of the
North and every blessed hireling of
theirs was made to show his colors,
march in the Republican parades,
vote for the grand old party candi
dates, and for the second time In its
history New York city, the modern
Babylon, went Republican and
Belshazzar Morgan drank his wine
in smiling content.
Through the North and West the
farmers, merchants and manufactur
ers who have waxed fat on the
profits of Southern trade wanted no
vacation from their profit-gathering,
and so they gave th:-ir landslide' v*?te
And so to the end of the chapter.
Another large factor was the Im
migration of aliens without an idea
of a government of the people; be
sotted in mind and habit by long
subjection to the iron hand of mon
archical rule and having but the
one ambition of bread ar*d meat and
money In their starved minds.
And so the great multitv.de filled
the broad road, some in brave rai
ment, some foot sore, others in royal
equipage; the rich fearing the peril
of ill-gotten gains, the poor dreading
the deeper poverty threatened, the
wage-earner sHvrring at the thought
of discharge?a motley procession of
nationalities?and they g?ve Tafc
321 electoral votes.
But in the whole tragedy of the
surrender of the groat reuuh'Ic of
the W<Jst to the worship of the gold
en calf thre was one luminous page.
The "solid South," one unconquered
by oppression untamed by wrong,
unafraid of threat, true to principle
and prosperity, atood to the faith of
the fathers who built with brave
deeds and strong hands and unfalter
ing sacrifice and rejoicing courage
the foundation on which this govern
ment grew to goodness a?d great-1
ness, a light to all the nations before :
the money-chAngers became the chief
priests in its temple of liberty. The
spleador of that page reaches from
' where the Potomac meets the ? <?
to where the Lone Star is mirrored
in the Rio Grande, and that day of
defeat is redeemed ;by the hero
spirit that gtill liv?s in the South
land and cover it as God's glory of
sunshine fi'Is thy heavens above.
