There may be a member or two.of

One of the leading features of the
Congressional Record is speeches that
were never delivered, punctuated by
"applause" that was never given. The
Record would serve its purpose bet
ter if It would confine itself to facts
instead of pandering to the weakness
of some congressman.
The Macon Telegraph believes that
if Hoke Smith is sent to Washington
it will be through the efforts of the
"anti-Smith" men who do not desire
h:m to remain Governor any longer
than is absolutely necessary. The
Telegraph, which has always opposed
Boke Smith, is evidently looking ffor
a soft place to fall.
(Vicious literature Is a pestilence
tliat disseminates the germs of moral
claath into the hearts and minds of
I?ople who read it. Parents cannot
b= too careful as to the character of
the literature their children road. The
beiit preventive of bad literature is
robust, wholesome, and intereeting
literature free from goody-goodyism.
Men can't live altogether to them
selves however much they may try.
The only thing they succeed In doing
i? to make themselves .more narrow
and selfish. How much better it is
every way for people to do their best
to help each other. By so doing life
Is sweetened and made better and
many a man has infused in him new
hope and courage.
Sir Henry Seymour King, who, in
the last general election was return
ed to the conservative seat in com
mons for the central district of Hull,
was unseated. The judges found Sir
Henry guilty of lavishly treating his
constituents. That is the way they
do over In England, but over here
Lorimer was excused when It was
known that a whole legislature was
bought up for him.
The reason why some towns with
inferior natural advantages go ahead
of some others which nature has been
lavish in her gifts is because their
citizens show foresight, enterjtrise
and public spirit while those of other
towns neglect their advantages. To
expect a town to flourish when its
natural advantages remain unimprov
ed is as foolish as it is. for a farmer
to expect a crop from land uncultivat
ed, or for a business man who does
not advertise to look for success.
"A Teacher" writes to The State
in defense of the State Board of Ed
ucation. He says the impression made
on the public mind by the published
statements by Superintendent Swear
?ingen is that members of the board
are guilty of graft; at least they con
strue the Superintendant of Educa
tion's public utterances to mean his
belief of such grafting. "A disting
uished educator of another State" is
quoted as shocked by the evidence of
graft in the book adoption revealed
by Mr. Swearingen's statements. It
begins to look as If the State Board

The Imperial Conference in London
has been on a different basis from the
conferences previously held. Those
conferences were "Colonial," while
the last was "Imperial," and the re
presentatives from the Dominion of
Canada, Commonwealth of Austra
lia. Union of South Africa, and Do
minion of New Zealand met on an
equal footing with the representatives
of Great Hritian, and Qflr. Asquit, the
'British prime minister, cordially wel
comed h-.s "colleagues." All this is
interesting as showing the growing
sclfconsciousness of the British col
onies, and that the lesson of 177(i
has been taken to heart by the mo
If it required any turther proof
that W. J. Bryan is a statesman and
not a nolitician it is abundantly fur
nished in his attitude on the wool
schedule, says the South Bend New
Era. While others are attempting to
s:op the gans in their political fences
by showing an inclination to compro
mise the question, Bryan takes -a
stand with the toiling many who
have to buy woolen clothes for
themselves without paying tribute to
any interest or an undue share into a
treasury which is being raided con
tinually by the most profligate and
extravagant expenditures ever wit
nessed in any government.
The Tramp Problem.
The tramp problem is botb large
and expensive. It costs the state of
New York something like $2,000,000
every year to look after its "Weary
W'iilies," and there is an additional
annual loss to the state o.' something
like $10,000,000 through the :.obber
ies, fires- and depredations for which
the fraternity is responsible. Many
attempts have been made to solve the
problem, but they have touched only
the edge of it.
Learning from what has heen so
successfully done In several European
countries, notably Switzerland, it Is
now proposed to start farm colonies
and set tramps to work that they may
ba producers as well as consumers.
The plan, if it is put in execution,
will be watched with interest, for any
thing that will convert the shiftless,
indolent and often dangerous hobo
into a self-respecting and serviceable
?member of society will be joyfully
A too great softness of heart is
largely responsible for the tramp
nuisance. Some people are ao con
stituted that when a "Weary V/illie"
spins some pitiful story of hunger
they cannot resist giving him a meal,
and oftentimes money as well. No
one wants to see a fellow mortal go
hungry, but the hungry man should
be willing to work for his meal. If
that were more often insisted on the
tramp evil would speedily decrease.
Wilson Runs Ahead.
?Straw ballots are being taken al
ready to determine who will be the
next President of the United States.
The Evening Chronicle of Potcsville,
Pennsylvania, has made a canvass of
Schulykill county to determine the
favorite in that county for president,
i sd reports ::n overwhelming -?enti
ment for Woodrow Wilson Roose
velt was the favorite in the Repub
lican side, it is staled, but Wilson
received a Jarger vola than Roose
velt and Taft together, a^d the
Chronicle estimates th9.t In the event
of Wilson's nomination by the Dem
ocrats he will carry that county by
from 8,000 to 10,000 vjtes. The
Columbia Record figures out Lha'. af
this rate he would ciny the State
of Pennsylvania by mon- than 100,
000?which is to say that straw bal
lots are more interesting thua con
clusive. The result of the canvas*
however, might as well be given.
AmtDng the Republicans the vote
was as follows: Roosevelt, 1,510;
Taft, 266; Wilson, 204; La Follette,
384; Roosevelt, 182; La Folle'fe,
184; Knox, 12"; and among the
Democrats, Wilson, 1,856; Clark
165; Harmon, 18. At any rare the
Demiocratlc candidate can not be
elected unless he can win some of the
votes that have been going to che Re
publican ticket heretofore, and in
this respect, as in others, Wilson
seems to fill the bill.
Southern Railway Working.
"Following out the policies of the
Southern' railway, we are do'.ng ev
erything possible to bring new set
tlers hero and instruct them along
with our own people in the fi.rm pos
sibilities of the South," remarked H.
W. Miller, assistant to President Fin
ley of the Southern railway, v/hile in
Columbia recently on business and
gathering information about South
"The South is very prosperous just
now, I find," he said, "and this is the
season when we are working hard in
the West to convince the people out
there that the South is the real coun
try. The newspapers in the West are
carrying advertistments from the
railroads of this section, and with the
cheap rates offered to settlers we are
satisfied that they will come."
The fact that the railroads are
spending money in the We3t means
much for the South, and had the leg
islature made the appropriation ask
ed for by the railroads to supple
ment the amount they were willing
to spend to advertise this State, South
Carolina would have reaped a golden
harvest by the expenditure of a few
Senator B. R. Tillman.
We welcome this distinguished cit
izen of South Carolina to Orange
burg, where he is now on a visit as
the guest of Capt. Jas. H. daffy. Sen
ator Tillman has many friends in tins
city and county who will be gla^T tc
see him once more. He has won his
way to the hearts of all the people
of South Carolina, as it Is hard now
to find a man in the State who does
not speak kindly of him, and admit
that he has made one of the best
Senators the State has ever had. It
was not so once, but the happy
change was inevitable as soon as the
people found out the ability of the
man and the distinguished services
he was destined to render the State.
The wish is universal throughout the
State, that he will be restored to com*
plete health and live to servo the peo
ple for many years in the United
States Senate, a body that has been
elevated and made better by the as
sociation of a man, whose pure, pri
vate life and eminent public service
she* lustre upon his native State.
Again we welcome Senato? Tillman
to Orangeburg, and wish him a pleas
ant stay in our little city. *
The Need of Parks.
When the prophet giving a picture
of peace, contentment and righteous
ness, drew the picture of boys and
girls playing in the streets, thee
were no such things as auto-, and mo
torcycles. In our modern cities a
street is about the most dangerous
place in which to let children play,
and the wise parent will n .tc allow it
if it can be avoided. Hut in many
places the street is about the only
p.ace for children to play outr jors
and one ghastly result is K-er i . the
accidents that occurr by bell"-, run
over in some places. One lesson to
be learned is the providing of parks
and other open spaces where children
romp and play to their hearts' con
tent. No community, however small,
should be without such a spot for, in
addition to being a playground, it
adds to the appearance of the place
if properly looked after. Through
the kindness and public spirit of a
few ladies Crangeburg has one little
park, where the children may meet
I and enjoy thmselves.

We Want Each One of the Several Thousand Readers of
This Paper Carefully to Read What Follows.
It will pay you to do so. THE MARCHANT MUSIC CO. offers to the people of this
section a rare oppc unity to secure a high grade piano at a low price, and we want you to
understand just why we can afford to do so at this particular time. The explanation is simple.
From June 3rd to 10th, there was held in Chicago the greatest Piano Exposition ever held
in the world. President Taft opened the snow and over 1000 pianos especially manufactured
for the occasion were on exhibition. Every piano expert, manufacturer, and dealer of any
note in both the United States and Canada were present to inspect these exposition instruments.
Naturally, the pianos exhibited were the best products of the various factories, because all the
marvelous skill of the master piano builders of the world were concentrated on the pianos shown
at this exposition. These exposition pianos and marvels of architectural, and. tonal beauty and
were eagerly sought by dealers.
Mr. D. H. Marchant, head qf this company was in attendance upon this exposition, and
being an expert himself and being right on the grcund, was enabled to secure some extraor
dinary bargains. Twenty-five of these splendid pianos were bought by him and are now daily
arriving at our warerooms. Because they were bought at reduced figures, we sell them at low
figures, either cash or on time. The reasonable terms which the public has enjoyed in the past,
we now offer on these exposition pianos.
If you want to see the highest expression of the piano-maker's art which has ever been
brought to South Carolina, call and inspect these magnificent instruments for your-self. If you
want a specially made piano at a low figure, this is your opportunity.
The following world leaders are represented: KNABE, KRANICH & BACK, BUSH &
LANE, HAINES BROS., KRAKAUER, LAUTER, WESER BROS., LUDWIG, TONK,
FOSTER, POOLE, JOHNSON and the Columbus Piano Co's. famous little "BOUDOIR".
Several Player pianos are among the lot at figures which must compel attention. The Player
piano is undoubtedly the piano of the future. Call to see these artistic pianos whether you want
to buy or not. They are worth seeing, and we are proud to show them. Let us demonstrate
the Inner.-Player for you.
