The Charleston Evening Post says
"There is a man in Charleston who
was so delighted with the rain last
night that he voluntarily carried
everyone of hfs wife's sixty-three
potted plants into the yard to be
watered, and lent his new umbrella
to his daughter's beau." Charleston
was not the only place that had that
kind of a man.
Col, August Kohn was unrelent
ing in his efforts to make the mem
bers of the press gang have a good
time at their recent meeting in Co
lumbia. That he succeeded in doing
so is the unanimous testimony . of
every one who attended the meeting.
The colonel is one of the few people
who always succeeds in accomplish
ing what he undertakes.
'Messrs A. E. and W. E. Gonzales,
of the State, and Jas. A. Hoyt, of the
Record, and all the other newspaper
folk oi" Columbia, have laid the mem
bers of the State Press Association
under renewed obligations to them
for their many kind attentions dur

city last week. May they all live
long and continue to prosper.
There will be no trouble about
?Bryan supporting Wilson should he
.be nominated for President by the
Democrats. Whatever little differ

will not be serious, and we expect
to see these two Democratic wheel
horses pulling together for the suc
cess of the Democratic ticket, who
ever may be nominated.
The meeting of the State Press
Association in Columbia was one of
the most pleasant and successful we
ever attended, and we have attend
ed a good many of its meetings. The
good people of Columbia did all they
could to make our stay in their beau
tiful city interesting, and we feel
that they succeeded far beyond their
expectations. Columbia is. not only
a city of the square meal, but a city
of genuin*! unostentatious hospital
ity. The stranger that finds himself
within her gates is indeed fortunate.
Columbia has a good baseball team
this year, but it went up against a
comb nation on Friday afternoon
that would beat any. team that ever
existed. It was more than a match
for the team against which it was
pitted on that afternoon, but the
umpire brazenly stole the game from
Columbia and gave It to Albany in
the presence of several hundred peo
ple. No such man as that umpire
should be allowed to disgrace a field
where manly sports are carried on,
let alone being made the supreme
arbiter of the games. Let us be
thankful that there are few such
men as Derrick umpiring friendly
contests between their fellow men.
What is to Be Don??
There Is no doubt in our mind that
when it comes to letter writing, Col
T. B. Felder, of Atlanta, is more than
a match for Governor Blea.se and Col.
Hub Evans put together. Col. Feld
er's latest contribution to >.he dispen
sary literature of the times is about
as caustic and highly colo.'ed as his
opening epistle to the Governor
when that official first ganre out the
"T. B." letters, and attributed them
to the eminent graft bunter from
Atlanta. In his latest epistles Col.
Felder uses language and hurls chal
lenges that should not be warranted
in civilized society, but, a3 the Char
leston Post suggests, he v.ould prob
ably plead that he is not dealing
with conditions of civilization. *
Col. Felder has accused the Gov
ernor of South Carolina oi' low crimes
and has characterized him in un
speakable terms, and he has chal
lenged the Governor to seek satisfac
tion either in personal vombat oi
through suits for libel. All of which
may be permitted to go tor what It
is worth?which is probably very lit
tle. But Col. Felder, in his latest
"open letter" produces exhibits also
?or, at least, alleged exhibits?
these being the form of two letters
signed "Cole," which he says were
written by the Governor of South
Carolina when he was a Senator
from Newberry county, and
these letters hint at traffics
in dispensary affairs not sanc
tioned .by the law. The "T. B." let
ters are matched by the "Cole" let
ters. They all indicate fraud on the
part of the writers of fhem. The
question to be solved in the whole
matter is what is Jo be done about
it? The Governor is hardly expect
ed to join in mortal combat with
his enemy, as Col. Hub Evans seems
perfectly willing to do. But, as our
Governor prides himself on being a
record breaker, why should he not
sue Col. Felder for libel i.u the courts
of Georgia, and thus vindicate his
good name. This course might not
be open to an ordinary Governor,
but would be all right in the case of
one who poses as a record breaker.
As the Charleston Post says, It would
certainly be a satisfaction to all
right thinking citizens of the State
if Col. Felder .could be ?hown to ,be
without warrant for his allegations
against the good name of Governor
Tore Off the Mask.
Can the Lumber Trust and the Pa
per Trust defeat reciprocity in the
name of American agriculture? That
is the issue before the senate, and
President Taft defined if. admirably
in his Chicago speech a few days ago.
The opposition to reciprocity comes,
as Mr. Taft said, from three classes.
One class is made up of "those
who own and control the lumber sup
ply of the United States.'" Another
class is made up of "those who are
engaged in the manufacture of print
paper and of whom the largest manu
factures own much of the spruce
wood supply of the United States
from which print paper is made."
The third class is made up of per
sons who pretend to represent the
farmers, land the New York firm
that is accelerating public opinion
against Reciprocity in behalf of ag
riculture is also looking for financial
assistance from "gentlemen interest
ed in lumber, in the manufacture of
print paper and in other manufac
The New York World says it does
I not .believe that even Elihu Root,
who is trying to amend the bill for
the profit of New York wood-pulp in
terests, will venture to challenge Mr.
Taft's analysis of, the opposition or
that he will undertake to answer the
The formidable opposition to Reci
procity comes from Lumber and Pa

Mr. Taft deserves hi : praise for
the boldness and frankness with
which he has met this is'-ue. If reci
procity is finally defeated or if the
bill is made ineffective by amend
ments, the country will at least know
the real reasons, for h;: has torn off
Where Have They Been?
As the Charleston Evening Post
points out, the most striking point
of similarity between the "T. B."
and the "Cole" letters is their long
dormancy. "Why, ' asks the Pos?.,
"was such material of prosecution
held under secure cover for so long,
instead of being put to use at con
venient season? "Hub" was an of
ficial of the State dispensary when
the "T. B." letters art- said to have I
been written, and as they made to
him proposals that should have
shocked and outraged :he soul of a
trustee of the public interest he
should have burned to bring the of
fender to book. By the same token,
if Col. Felder had the "Cole" let
ters Ln his possession during the per
iod of his activity as prosecutor for
the State of South Carolina, why did
he not summon their s ipposed writer
before the courts or other constituted
authorities of investigation to ex
plain their purport or to suffer pen
alty for the illegal engagements they
indicate? If the new dispensary com
mission is going to do anything to
ward clearing up old mysteries per
haps there is no greater service it
can render than the establishment of
the causes of neglect of these two
collectons of manuscript by the re
spective parties in whose keeping
they have rested for nigh on to six
Elihu Root's Adroit Mind.
Said E. H. Harriman in the cele
brated letter to Sidney Webster:
Ryan's success in all his manipula
tions, traction deals, tobacco combi
nation, manipulation of the State
Trust Company into the Morton
Trust Company, the Shoe and Leath
er Bank into the Western National
Bank and then again into the Bank
I of Commerce?thus covering up his
tracks?has been done by the adroit
mind of Elihu Root.
The New York World says Mr.
Ryan's Traction Trust Is in the hands
of a receiver. Mr. Ryan's Tobacco
Trust has just been outlawed by the
United States Supreme Sourt. But
the adroit mind of Elihu Root is
still active. It is now seeking to
amend the reciprocity bill to death
for the benefit of the Paper Trust.
How to Stop Them.
It will be a good day when a com
pulsory sentence1 ox imprisonment
awaits every individual member of a
trust found guilty of violating the
law. At the present time most such
criminals escape through the conven
ience of an immunity bath or by the
payment of a fine, which though in
itself may,v be large, means no more
to them than the payment of a dollar
would mean to a poor man. As for a
sense of sham<? in being convicted
of breaking the law, they have none.
Nothing but the fact that prison
sentences and stripes await them will
make them obey the law and work
the desired end This is the only
way to curb the trusts and make
them respect the rights of other peo
If any man was to say about us
what T. B. Felder says about Gov.
Cole L. Bleasn, we would certainly
give him a chance to prove them in
an/ court that might be open no us.
The Governor should lose no time
in seeking vindication at the hands
of the law. He owes this to the
people of South Carolina as well as
