think the p- blic service corporations
are about t<. take the state. In a re

politics by public service corpora
tions." We do not know how it is
over in Ba nberg, but we are sure
that no p\ blic service corporation
dominates the politics of Orangeburg

the politic! .ns of its county If they
are being t aduly Influenced by pub

There is Only One Remedy.
It is hard to conceive of a more
brutal and horrible killing of a hu
man beinjg than the late lynching
in Pennsylvania, the shocking de
tails of which puts it in a class all
to itself, as the annals o* lynching
contain 'no story of equal, revolting
barbarity. According to the latest
accounts, the victim was taken from
the hospital,- where he lay wounded,
tied to Lis cot with rope so as he
could not escape. He was carried
out on his cot to the fieldf- near the
town and dried grass piled about the
cot and set on fire. When the ropes
that bound the helpless victim to the
cot were burned, he arose and start
ed to run. He was caught, dragged
back fo the fire and cast f.nto it, the
now roaring flames quickly ending
the torture. The horrible deed was
committed on Sunday, and the mob
was composed in large part of wo
men. ' t
It seeni3 a singular and a sii*mifi
cant coincidence says the Augusta
Herald, that the lynching of negroes
in Northern states should call forth
the display of the most gruesome
barbarity on the part of the lynch
ing mob. Whether it bo in Dela
ware, Illinois, Ohio or Pennsylvania,
the story is always the same?the
victim was killed in the most cruel
manner the mob could deiise. The
time has passed when the North can
point a Pharisaical finger at the
South over lynchings, and sermon
ize on the "noblier than thou" order.
Unfortunately lynching still occur
sometimes in the South, though very
rarely under attendant barbarous
conditions as in the 'North. Most so
called lynchings in the South are
merely the killing of fugitive crim
inals, who after having committed
beforehand some atrocious crime are
pursued and killed while resisting
arrest. In proportion to the negro
population real lynchings in the
North are more numerous than in
Lynching is wrong and all lynch
ings can only be deplored. But as
like all causes produce like results,
so all lynchings can be traced back
to the same cause. In this Pennsyl
vania lynching it is statec* that many
crimes had recently been committed
by negroes, without having been
properly punished. The .vanton kill
ing of a policeman by a vicious ne
gro was the spark that firod the mag
azine of indignation, the depth of
which was revealed in the brutality
of the lynching. Strict and prompt
enforcement of the law is the best
remedy for lynching. Lad the les
ser crimes committed by negroes in
and around Coatsville been promptly
punished the infamy of Its horrible
lynching would no tnow rest upon
Canadain Redprocity Election.
Canada is now in the. thick of a
campaign preceeding an election, the
chief issue in which is the acceptance
or rejection of the reciprocal trade
agreement recently passed by the
Congress of the United States. The
Liberal party, led by Sir Wilfred
Laurier, is in favor of the measure,
and it is thought the Liberals will
sweep the country, and be return
ed to power with a larger majority
in Parliament than they had in the
last Parliament, which was dissolved
to give the people an opportunity to
express their wishes in regard to the
reciprocity measure. The Liberal
leaders are doing all they can to win,
and it is more than likely that they
will win despite the array of special
interests against them.
The sepcial Interests in this coun
try, having been routed in this spec
ial measure, have joined forces with
the special interest of England and
Canada in an attempt to defeat the
Liberal party in this particular cam
paign. As in the United States, their
appeals are to prejudice and selfish,
sordid consideration. They go so
far as to claim that the adoption of
a reciprocity agreement means the
annexation of Canada to the United
States, which of course, is nonsense.
They try to make the Canadian far
mers believe that by extending their
markets reciprocity with the United
States would ruin them. This is ex
actly what was claimed by the Re
publican Senators that reciprocity
would do for the American farmers.
Such arguments, if they can be
called such, seem to have little or no
influence on the Canadians, the peo
ple declining to allow themselves to
be duped by such sophistries, and
there are signs that the opposition
is trying to sidetrack reciproc ity,
hoping to win on minor issues. They
seem to have realized that their only
hope of preventing th? adoption of
the reciprocity pact is in delaying it
for this time. All this is vain on the
part of the oppostion, for the indi
cations are that the people in the
coming elections will endorse the
liberal and useful trade agreement,
and that it will be ratified by the new
Canadian Parliament early in the
fall and put in force by the first of
the new year.
Difference in the Governments.
There is considerable difference in
the systems of government in the
United States and Canada. The
procedure of the reciprocity pact
with Canada will illur.trate the dif
ference in the two systems of gov
ernment. In this country the admin
istration could not command in eith
er house a majority of its own sun
porters and therefore the success <??'
the measure was due to the support
given it by the politicr-.l opponents of
the administration. Under the Canad
ian system an administration that,
cannot command a Majority of its
supporters on a government bill nec
essarily resigns or appeals to the peo
This difference of action is due to
the fundamental difference between
the two systems. Of any president of
this country it may be said that he
occupies the two-fold position of chief
magistrate and headship of his party.
In Canada the two positions are sep
arated, the Governor General being
the Chief Executive and acting neu
trally as to politics, while the pre
mier or head of the cabinet is the
leader of his party.. If then, Sir
Wilfred Laurler, the Premier of Can
ada -had failed, as President Taft fail
ed to have the support of his own
'party he would have resigned or ap
pealed to the country through a new
Sir Wilfred, appe-'ed but it waa
not his failure to be sustained by his
party that caused him to do it but
because of the obstructive policy in
Parliament of the opposition party.
This again shows'the legislative dif
ference between the two nations.
Heer the minimum and maximum
life of congress is fixed at two years.
In Canada a maximum limit onlyand
that of five years is fixed and the!
government can at any time before I
the expiration of the five years dis
solve Parliament. This has just
been done after a parliamentary life
of three years only in order that the
people may pass on the reciprocity

Never will we forget the tender care,
the kind words, the thoughtful acts
of kindness and love that was mani
