cud Democrat, Orangeburg, S. C. j
There is nothing to be gained in
turning out good, faithful city of
ficials just to put others in their
places. The Times a ad Democrat
has always opposed this policy, and
Justice O'Gorman gives up a job
?with a $17,500 salary to accept the
position of United States senator
from New York at salary of $7,500
a year. There is a patriotic Demo
crat for you.
A Brooklyn lawyer, suspended
from practice, who disappeared sev
en years ago and was thought to have
committed suicide, reappears as tize
leader of the minority in the Michi
gan senate. That is decidedly better
than being a suicide.
The Anderson Mail says "what
New York most needs right now is
a great, big democrat?one big
enough to send to the United Stares
senate." We believe that the gen
tleman has been found in the person
of Senator O'Gorman.
We agree with the Charleston
Evening Post that "the new winding
up commission, appointed to finish
the winding started by the original
winding up commission, can find leg
al advice in this State just as sound
as that dispensed from Atlanta."
We most heartily endorse the ap
poinmen. of Editor E. H. Aull by
Gov. Blease on the Asylum Comniis
sion. Bis varied political and busi
ness experience makes him ? valued
member of the commission that is
really charged with rebuilding the
hospital for the insane.
William J. Bryan, three times
Democratic candidate for President
of the United States, was in the na
tional'capital Monday rejoicing with
the members of his party that next
day, for the first time in sixteen
years there would be called to order
a Democratic national House of Rep
resentatives. ? i
Felder has been kicked out ny
the winding up commission, and in
vited to come before it and tell
what he knows about Blease or any
one else's connection with dispensary
matters. It is now up to Felder to
make good his insinuations against
the governor, or confess that they
The Washington Post thinks Mr.
Peary was entirely too modest. He
should have had his admiral's rank
dated from the time he began look
ing for the pole. Yes, and all the
peofile that Peary have fooled into
believing that he really discovered
the pole would be willing to give it
to him, too.
When city officials train themselves
for the positions they hold, and be
come thoroughly competent in their
respective offices, it looks like child's
play to turn them out to put in
green men. Whoever is elected
Mayor and Aldermen the present city
offlciak; should not be disturbed.
They sre all right.
Tuesday marked the opening of the
trial o! the Democratic party to dem
onstrate its worthiness to receive
"the wider confidences of the voters
of the country." In his speech ac
cepting the Speakership Representa
tive Clark asked his colleagues to
keep l.aat fact uppermost in their
minds dflring the present session of
congress. Let them do that and all
will b ; well..
Senator O'Gorman, of New York,
is a amily man. Strong in body,
tough in frame, he has a wife who
appears to be a fit companion fcr
him. Then they have six stalw;-.rt
daughters and one son, the latter be
ing the youngest child. He stands
with :he common people, and may
be considered a fair, upright man,
who will wisely discriminate between
the laboring classes and capital.
"Women shouldn't waste their
time dressing," says some grouchy
editor. We agree with the Wilming
ton Star that time is not wasted
when women take time to dress. It
makes 'em pretty and that is exactly
what catches the average man, one of
whom an old anti-dress grouch is
not. A woman can look prettier on
$50 than a man can on what Col.
Rockefeller is giving away so he can
Intelligent revision of the tariff,

rules to permito proper consideration
Of public measures, economy in hand
ling the purse strings of the coun
try, the publication of campaign
contributions and the early admis
sion of New Mexico and Arizona to
Statehood were some of the things
which Speaker Clark emphasized in
the Democratic program as measures
which would be undertaken by the
majority party in the house.
Are Young People Deteriorating?
Whether the moral stamina ot
young people is or is not declining
is a question being freely discussed
in some quarters. It is one of those
questions upon which there may be
a wide yet honest difference of opin
ion. Many people enamored of the
past and recalling the days o* thoir
own childhood, will probably say
that the children of a former genera
tion led healthier lives and possessed
a stronger moral liber th^n do the
young people of today. In line with
that they will glorify the virtues 01
their forefathers and laud the Spar
tan simplicity of tiheir lives.
On the other hard there ire those
who are just as strongly convinced
that in almost every way the young
people of the present age are super
ior to those of bygone generations,
and that in moral standard and ca1
pacity, and in willingness to eudurt
and work far better. They ground
their argument on the belief that the
young people of today lead more nat
ural lives and are in closer and more
intimate touch with actual conditions
of life, and that those conditions de
mand and produce greater moral sta
Probably the truth lies midway be
tween the two extremes. Those who
assert that the young people of today
are deteriorating morally, that they
are mentally flabby, and shirk hard
things may point with much 3ffect to
the young men sad women in so
called society. And In truth it must
be confessed that great material suc
cess is sadly enerv Ulng to many peo
ple. But it is alfco true that the in
centive to work and that the capacity
to withstand temptations and take
unflinchingly the hard knocks of bus
iness and other life was never great
er than it is today.

Great Loss to the South.
Dr. Seaman A. Knapp died at his
home in Washington on last Satur
day. Whi'ie his death is a great loss
to the whole country, It is a greater
loss to the South (.nan any other sec
tion, and a greater loss to South Car
olina than any other State. He did
a great work for this State, and nis
de&th will be regretted all over it.
Long ago, as The State says, it was
"discerned that the shortest route to
the South's industrial independence
and the permanent prosperity of its
agricultural people lay in diversified
farming, but the task of convincing
them of that truth was far from easy.
Dr. Knapp, as the officer in charge 01
the farm demonstration of the Na
tional department of agriculture,
came to their aid at the opportune
moment. A man of wide information
and a profound thinker, he believed
in the South, saw plainly the richness
of its unused resources and set to
work with his whole heart to reveal
them to the Southern people. North
ern born, his s-vmpathles were as
wide as humanity and his aim was
co help the Southern farmers help
themselves so that the country that
he loved would be the stronger ana
happier by reason of the lifting of
the people of a great section to a
higher and better plane. The work
that he did will go on and the South
will not forget how much he inspired
it and cherished It and the affection
of the South for the Republic is the
deeper by reason of the disinterested
efforts of this one of the Republic's
Keep the Record Straight.
Some newspaper attributes the
loss of the power of the press to the
editors' riding on tickets paid for in
advertising instead of cash. We
have seen it stated that the pulpit,
too, is losing its power. Wonder if
the riding of the preachers on clergy
men's tickets have anything to do
with the pulpit's losing power??Or
aneburg Times ?nd Democrat.
Not altogethe; correct; the "some
newspaper" attributed the loss ot
power of the press in some measure
to editors' riding on "free passes."
You have seea It stated no doubt
that black is white, or something
equally as absurd. But the pulpit Is
not losing its power; and "clergy
men's tickets" are not free passes.?
We have seen it stated time ana
again that the power of the pulpit
has declined aar; that there has been
a great falling- off of men In attend
ance on the pleached word. We have
sen both these statements made, and
the fact deplored, In religious news
papers. But we are glad to know
that the pulpit :3 not losing its pow
er, and hope that The Observer has
sure ground for its statement to that
No Need For War.
We believe the time is coming,
and is not very far off, when the
principle which applies in private life
that the disputes between individuals
must be legally settled and not by
violence, will Le applied to nations
in their disputes with each other. It
is a large blot upon out civilization
that nations a: e armed to the teeth
to protect themselves against the en
croachments of their neighbors, or
to serve their own purpose in taking
a favorable time to coerce weaker
powers. Fortunately the signs are
multiplying that the masses, who
have to be:.r the great burden of
taxation, are growing restless and
that unless retrenchment of arma
ments speedily comes, "internal revo
lution," as Sir Edward Gray pre
dicts, will be the order of the day
and after muc): tribulation and blood
shed settle the question for all time
to come. There is no need for war
and it should be banished from the
face of the earth.
Here it Goes Again.
Some peopl i seem to take a sort
of fiendish delight in trying to upset
cherished ideals and in smashing
historic beli yfs into smithereens.
Quite recently a distinguished
Frenchman sought to prove that Co
lumbus was a fake of the worst kind
and that the credit of being first to
cross the Atlantic is wrongly accord
ed him. And now an American is
digging up at low tide the mud bot
tom of the river Wye in England to
find records to prove that Lord Bacon
wrote the plays for which Shakes
peare has the credit. Notwithstand

men the world will continue to honor
