In business and politics a "gen
I tleman's agreement" is apt to be a
very ungentlemahly affair. It cer*
tainly is when in business it is an
understanding between, the members
ot a combine to evade the law and
fleece the public,' and equally so In
politics when It has for its object the
etifflng of inquiry into alleged wrong
doing, or the defeat of legislation de
signed to benefit the public. ,
Our old friend, the sea serpent,
has again made his appearance after
an i.naeountable absence ot several
year?, As was to be expected in this
age ot progrefsiveness in fashions
and other things the serpent recent-1
ly seen displayed some new features
Not only had it the customary head
as "large as a barreF' but also wings
several feet in length,. How highly
dovftloped in some people is the imag
inative faculty. '
We agree with the People's Advo
cate that the government prediction
of a 14,000,000 bale cotton crop is
rather premature. Persons who rai?e
cotton know there is no way of tell
ing within 50 per cent what the crop
will yield at this time of the year.
There are too many things that enter
into the making of the crop to hap
'pen yet. So do not get excited over
the matter, though the start of the
cotton crop of the South may be fav
orable on an average. ;
When a weak nation has had to
pay indemnities more than once to
stronger nations for real or fancied
insult or damage, how It must re
joice when its turn comes to demand
payment by a still weaker nation. In
territory and money China has- given
liberally to Japan, Britain, Germany
and France. But now China in its
demand that Mexico pay a large in
demnity for outrages upon Chinese
subjects'in Mexico is itself playing
the big fellow. How true it is that
?big fish swallow the little fish when
they get the chance.
The laws of nature by which we
sometimes suffer are always work
ing for man's advantage. We some
times forget that when a ship goes
down, an earthquake occurs, or a
flood comes. Yet for every ship that
sinks a thousand cross the sea in safe
ty, for every destroying flood there
are thousands of streams carrying
merchandise, irrigating lands, and
operating the machinery of mills,
and for every earthquake taking
lives there are illimitable areas of
land supporting millions of people
in peace and plenty.
It is an old saying and as true as it.
is old, that if one marries in harte
one can repent at leisure. The oth
er day a woman sought release from
marriage on the ground that she had
married her husband to win a bet
and that she was disappointed in him.
That woman was but one of thous
ands, both men and women, who fail
to understand the importance, solem
nity and sacredness of the relation
iato which they enter. No wonder
that so often marriage is a failure.
Most certainly the man or woman
who marries as a joke or for a wa
ller will find that married life itself
is no joke.
William Jer oings Bryan.
South Carolina i honored for a
few days by the presence within her
borders of 'Hon. William Jennings
Bryan. iMx. Bryan does not come
on a political mission, but on what is
to him a business trip, for we take it
that lecturing is, at this time, Mr.
Bryan's principal means, or one of
his principal means, of earning a liv
ing. It is a highly honorable voca
tion, affording the lecturer the oppor
tunity to educate and stimulate pub
lic thought as cannot Ibe done in an>
"But," as the Columbia Record
well says, "Mr. Bryan cannot be sep
arated in the public mind from poli
ties. He stands forth a3 having achiev
ed the unique distinction of being
three times the nominee of his party
times the nominee of his party for
for president 'in this respect his
position in our political history Js
strikingly" similar to that of Henry
Clay?though it may be premature
to make that comparison, if perchance
Mr. Bryan still cherishes the hope
of residing in the White House.
"It has been fifteen years since Mr.
Bryan became a national flgure.
When he went to the Democratic
national convention in Chicago in
1896 it was in the dual capacity of
delegate and newspaper reporter.
He was then only thirty-six years old
and had served two terms in congrea?
representing the: first Nebraska dis
trict. It has been said that the pres
idential nomination in 1896 came to
him as a result of his remarkable
speech advocating free silver, which
so captivated tloe convention. Un
doubtedly this speech fixed the con
vention's attention upon him, but it
is probably unjust to Mr. Bryan to
give the speech entire credit for the
hold which he obtained upon his fel
low delegates. The wisdom of the
judgment that the Chicago conven
tion exercised in his selection was
demonstrated by the remarkable
campaign whi^h he subsequently
conducted as the nominee of the par
ty. In that campaign It is stated
that he traveled over 18,000 miles,
and the nusnlber of speches he deliv
ered was up to that time, unprece
dented. There was a variety In his
speeches that stamped him as a man
of remarkable intellectual versatil
"The nominee of the party lor
president again In 1900 and for the
lhird time in 1908, Mr. Bryan hn,
exerted upon the Democratic party
an Influence that is without its equal
since the days >f Calhoun. He has
lived to outgrow the charge that he
is a man of one idea His handling
of Imperialism in the 1900 cam
paign and his discussion of the trust
question in 1908 have sufficiently
refuted the allegation that he was
tied to free silver, but in his presen
tation of every political issue there
is the same underlying principle. Mr.
Bryan, if not a crusader, is at least
an apostle. Hu political preaching,
if ft may be m called, is Pauline.
That he stands yet for the man above
the dollar, as he did in 1896, none
"It is idle at this time to speculate,
as. so,many ar*} accustomed to do,
upon what might have (been the suc
cess or failure of the Democratic par
ty had Mr. Bryan's Influence during
the last fifteen years been less power
ful. The fact stands out that ever
since 1896 he has been the one nat
ional exponent of Democratic prin
ciples. It has heen his opportunity
to occupy this position, and it Is not
necessary to consider whether the re^
suit of his leadership has been bene
ficial or otherwise. At present more
than at any other time in this period
there are coming to the front party
leaders who may prove themselves
equal to the aeeiumptlon of the posi
tion Mr. Bryan has held, (but it Is al
most manifest that none of these
leaders can expect, or can be expected
to take first place in the partyv ranks
over the active opposition of the Ne
?braskan. It rouy be that next year
Mr. Bryan will And himself fighting
for dominance against not one but
several of thes^ prospective leJaders.
If that turns out to be the case it may
be depended upon that he Will put up
a hard fight. It is, however, the gen
eral hope of these concerned for the
success of the party that Mr. Bryan
will find it consistent with his convic
tions and ambition to Join hands with
one or the other of the progressive
Democratic governors, who are now
making the Democratic party the
present hope or the republic.
"It is superfluous to say that Mr.
Bryan Is now, as always, very wel
come to South Carolna. This is a
State that has been devotedly loyal to
his leadership, relieving In the prin
ciples for which he has stood nnd con
fident of his sincerity and singleness
The Choice of Sodom.
(Sometime ago The Times and Dem
ocrat suggested that unless a general
rain visited the State soon it would
be a good thing, to hold prayer
services over the State, and pray for
rain, which wps so much needed to
save the trops. A few people in
talking questioned the good of such
I meetings and thought they would
do no good. We publish below an
'editorial from the Newberry Obser
ver, which we 'ully endorse, and we
j ask those doubting Thomases to
i read it.
"Little as one may think of it, and
little as the average man cares, the
choice of Sodom and Gomorrah
comes to every city in every age of
the world: not in the exact way in
which the choice came in the days of
Lot, and not because of the same
form of vice. As there are varieties
of vices, so there are varieties of
methods of der auction. There IS" no
probability of fire and brimstone
raining down on any city, no matter
how corrupt, in these latter days;
but there are other methods of pun
ishments besides fire and brimstone
"It might be hard to find a city of
the population of Sodom in which
the proposition made to Lot could
not be accepted. Every man who
has ever read the story of the de
struction of Sodom, has thought
what a wonderfully wicked city Sod
om was. And so it was; wickeder
far than Chicago, or New York, or
even than New'Orleans?and that is
saying i great deal.
"In one shape or another every
city takes its -choice. If it chooses
to elevate vice and crime; to rush
madly after money and pleasure; to
make a god of gold ;> to make a bus
iness of grafting and swindling; to
ignore honesty and truth and jus
tice?it will suffer for it. The day
of judgment Will come. Babylon
iprdved it, so did Athens, so -did
Rome. So will all other cities that
run the course they ran.
"People may not .believe it, but
there is prosperity in righteous liv
ing whether it be by cities or individ
uals. A city in this day that regards
honesty and decency and sobriety;
that respects the Sabbath and the
ten commandments, prospers more
than the city that defies the laws of
God and man. The best towns and
cities in South Carolina are those
that come nearest the ideals above
named, the boneheads to the con
