President Taft is an easy mark
for all the political schemers in the
T.Ms time next year the political
pot in South Carolina will be boiling
at a rapid rate and the fur will be
The scandal being developed among
government officials is an indication
of the loose way things are being
rum by the Republicans.
The Lorimer investigation has dis
closed some rich i revelations, and
gives the putblic an idea how big
business bought up the legislatures
of some of the States.
Out of respect to Its founder Clem
son College will remain pretty much
as It is during Senator Tlllman's life
time. What he says about it has
great weight with the people, as it
It is predicted in Washington that
tlfe passage of the Reciprocitf hill
will be followed by the passage of
a measure reducing the duty on wool,
and that Taft's veto of it will make
political capital for the Democrats.
President Taft is futher embar
rassed iby the investigations regard

In the Democratic symposium on
presidential preferences, printed by
Grit. Woodrow Wilson lead the poll,
receiving over four times as many
votes as all the other candidates to
gether. Champ Clark and Gov. Har
xoon stood about equal.
The food poisoners of this country i
tan find no better way. of committing
business suicide than by continuing
to make war on men like Dr. Wiley.
T5ut we do not believe that President 1
Taft will make such a political blun
der as the removal of Wiley would
President Taft praises the Demo
crats for passing the Reciprocity Bill.
That Is good as far as It ;goes, but if
the President really wants to recip
rocate and show his appreciation he
should help the Democrats pass the
bills they may introduce In Congress
to reform the tariff.
A Pennsylvania Dutchman speaks
of Woodnow Wilson as "a native of
"Dixie," beloved by the "Yankee,,'
and trusted and esteemed by the
cowboy of the West, a scholar, a
lawyer, a professor, a colleye pres
ident, an upright politician, a Demos
thenes, already heralded as the "safe
and sane" presidential candidate.";
That fourteen and a half million
bale crop .estimate seems to have
been made .by some fakir connected
with the Agricultural Department at
Washington in the Interest of cot
ton speculators. It seems to us that
it is aboul time the so-called Agri
cultural Department should be run
for the benefit of the farmers and
not against them. The fakir that
made that estimate should be kicked
out at once.
Capt. W. E. Gonzales, Editor of
The State, was painfully injured on
last Saturday by his automobile run
ning into some wire that careless
workmen had stretched across the
road near Fountain Inn in Green
ville County. He was taken to the
hospital at Greenville and given at
tention, and will be out In a few
days. We congratulate him on his
fortunate escape. The accident,
while bad enough, could have been
a great deal worse.
In describing the reunion of Con
federate and Federal veterans on the
battleleld of Mannassas, the Asso
ciated Press says the second battle
of Manassas was a drawn battle.
This is a mistake. Pope, the Federal
commander, was disastrously defeat
ed by Lee. The Confederates cap
tured 9,000 prisoners, 30,000 small
arms and thirty connan. Pope and
his defeated army fled to Washing
ton in a demoralized condition, leav
ing behind them millions of dollars
worth of stores of all kinds for the
We tender our heartfelt sympathy
to Col. E. H. Aull, of the Newberry
Herald and News, as he sits in the
deep black shadow of the greatest
sorrow that will ever befall him in
this life, the death of his accomplish
ed and devoted wife, who passed
away on last Saturday. Mrs. Aull
was a most gracious and charming
woman, and her death caused great
sorrow to many all over South Caro
Hna, who knew and loved her for
her many noble qualities. She has
rrne to the beautiful home above,
but the influence of her pure life
will continue to uplift and help all
who were touched by it while she
lingered with us.
Where He Stands.
* In the sense of seeking the nom
ination for President at the hands
of the Democratic party, Speaker
Champ Clark is not a candidate, hut,
of course, if his name i* presented
to the convention, as it is bound to
be toy his friends and admirers, and
he receives the nomination, he will
accept the honor, and do all he can
to lead the Democratic hosts to vic
tory. The following extract from a
cirular sent out by Speaker Clark to
all the Demoratic newspapers of the
oountry from Washington early in
July fully expl-ins his position in
regard to the nomination:
The truth is that I am not a
candidate for President, have nev
er broched the subject to any liv
ing being, and have no press bu
reau. Many good Democrats have
been kind enough to speak of me
in connection with the Presidency,
for which I am grateful. It is a
high compliment. The Democrats
gave me the most important office
that they had to tgive. Upon the
performance of this House, will
depend whether we win or lose in
the next election. Therefore the
highest duty that I oan perform is
to stay right here and do anything
in my power to make a record
upon which we can win. I am
not going to neglect that duty to
go gallivanting around the coun
try in pursuit of another office,
and at the same time I am not
going to decline a nomination that
has not been tendered me.
This circular, which The Times
and Democrat received in common
with all other Democratic newspa
pers in the ountry. puts Speaker
Clark on high groutod, out it is
just where those who know .the
Speaker expected him to stand. Of
course, the circular is in no sense
a private communication. While it
was addressed to the Editor of The
Times and Democrat, it was in fact
Intended for all the people as the
Speaker is anxious for all to know
exactly his position in regard to the
Democratic nomination for Presi
dent. The Speaker is a warm per
sonal friend of the Hon. William
Jennings Bryan, and should he be
nominated for President, he would
have the enthusiastic support of the
Great Commoner, as well as all
other true blue Democrats.
Must Live at Home.
The Charleston Post, quoting from
government figures, states that with
in a twelve-month the neople of this
state have sent out of the State for
horses and mules $11,550,000;\for
bacon, $13,000,000; for dairy prod
ucts, $12,000,000; for flour. $20,
000,000 and for commercial food
stuffs, including hay, $4,000,000.
The Post correctly deems these sta
tistics disheartening. But, as the
Charlotte Observer points out, there
Is good ground for encouragement
none the less.
The Observer goes on to say that
"it is not at all probable that South
Carolina will ever again send out
(as much for these particular prod
ucts. The corn-club movement, the
girls' tomato clubs, the excellent pig
club idea which is destined to spread
from Greenville county to many oth
ers are all unmistakable indications
that the farmer is beginning to apply
what he is learning about the advan
tage of making his living on his
own groud instead of raising cotton
enough to purchase it from the near
We think the Observer's predic
tion is a safe one, as our farmers
are learning the important lesson
that it is cheaper to live at home,
and more of them are doing so now
than ever before. We agree with
the Observer that "there is not a
single, item in the above list that a
farmer in either Carolina cannot
raise cheaper than he can buy, pro
vided only that he use intelligence
about the raising. If all the neces
sary data were at hand we believe
that it would ,be found that the en
tire demand in both Carolinas for
t!he commodities listed could ,be satis
fied with home-grown products with
out at all eliminating cotton from
the fields." '
Suicide in This Country.
The suicide rate of American cities
during the year 1910 decreased to
19.7 per 100,000 against an'average
of 21 for 1909 and 21.8 for 1908.
The highest suicide rate was in the
West, San Francisco leading the list
with 176 of 42.2 per 100,000. Seat
tle had seventy-two suicides of 30.4
for every 100,000 population. Port
land, Oregon, showed 53 suicides or
25.6 for efery 100,000 inhabitants.
I Los Angeles had ninety-nine sui
cides, of 31 for every 100,000 pop
ulation, while Sacremenio and Oak
land showed fifteen and forty-eight
respectively, or an average of 33.6
and 32 to every 100,000 inhabitants.
Denver has sixty-eight suicides, or
31.9 to every 100,000 persons.
Strangely enough, New York's
suicide rate is comparatively low,
only 523 persons killing themselves
in Manhattan and the Bronx, or IS.9
for every 100,000.
Glucester, Mass., and Newport, R.
T., had no suicides in 1910, and
most New England cities showed a
low rate of self-destruction.
It is gratifying to note that the
rate in the South was lower than in
any other section of tbe country,
says the Augusta Herald, from which
newspaper we copy the above. Come
to think of It, why should any one
in the South commit suicide.
Predicts Democratic Victory.
Congressman Victor Berger, the
only Socialist in Congress, discussing
politics with his party followers in
Milwaukee, predicts the election of
several Socialists to the next Con
gress. These will come from Colum
bus. Pittsburs-, Philadelphia and oth
er Eastern cities with two from New
York. He also said that the Demo
crats never had a better chance to
win. and will not have to do mucn
to do so. He thinks that If the
Democrats stand for making them
selves a tall to the insurgent kite
they will be defeated, but if they
stand out for reciprocity and then
take up the wool schedule they will
win sure. The views of Mr. Berger
are interesting only as showing that
from an impartial stantpoint, that is
neither Republican or Democrat, the
Democrats have the best chance in
the election next year.
Power of the Farmer.
In several of his recent speeches,
President Taft has addressed himself
directly to the farmers of the United
States. Wlhat more natural? asks
Grit. As Grit says the farmers of
the United Stages nroduce this coun
try's greatest wealth. They are in
a position to make Presidents. More
men are engaged in agriculture in
this country than in any other in
dustry. The farmers are the back
bone of the nation. They profit well
when crops are good and take the
brunt of hard times wh:n"crop3 are
pcor. They are thinkers. When the
President addresses them they take
notice. Some agree with him; others
disagree. Politically or economical
ly, the farmers of the United States
cannot be driven willy-nilly as they
drive their flocks. Tney think, and
that is why the President of the
United States singles them out to ad
dress more often than he does men
engaged in any other occupation. In
other words, the farmers ol! the
United States wield the political bal
ance of power in this country. ,
