The News and Courier says the

The Repub ican party does not de

Senator Vardaman delivered a lec
ture at -lendersonvllle the other
night, whi }h was greatly enjoyed by
all who h<ard it. A gentleman from
this city who heard Vardaman's
speech says the report of it in a daily
newspaper of this State was a gross
misrepres? ntation of it. He says the
speech wa i a good one and that Var

The News and Courier notes that
notwithstanding the great storm that
visited Cl arleston Sunday it did not
lose an if su e. This is commendable
in the News and Courier and it de
serves credit for its pluck and en
durance. But after all, The News
and Com or only reflected the Char
leston sp'rit of successfully pulling
against t le tide. It is the way ev
ery body down there does.
The to )acco trust seems to have
an old acquaintance in Virginia,
whose fo mer associations with that
corporation that may cost him his
"political' head. Senator Claud A.I
Swanson is a candidate for re-elec-'
tion and seems to have a rather for
midable opposition on account of)
some ad nissions he has made con
cerning past affiliations with the
Amerciar Tobacco Company.
That members of the poultry
?trust hav i been found guilty and have
received prison sentences instead of
fines is sn encouraging fact. Hither
to trust magnates usually managed
to escap? tbro.ugh the operation of
immunity baths and convenient tech
nicalties apparently designed to fav
o- them And when the' trve been
found guilty the penalty was a fine
which they usually charged up to
the con inner. That has been tho
experience with the sugar, oil and to
bacco tnsts, but with the success at
tending the prosecution of the poul
try trus it is to be hoped that a new
day has dawned for the public.
About the States.
The act admitting Arizona and
New Mexico, amended in accordance
with the recommendations of the
President to exclude the provision
for recall of judges from the consti
tution of Arizona and to make eas
ier amendment of the constitution of
New (Mexico, has become law, the
President having affixed his signa
ture. The people of these territories
will now organize State governments
and establish their capitals, elect
Senators and Representatives in Con
gress, and enter into sovereign rela
tion with the United States forth
with. On the Fourth of July next
the design of the flag will be formally
changed to show forty-eight stars in
, The Charleston Evening Post says
it is one hundred and ten years
since the first State was added to the
original Union of thirteen States. On
March 4, 1791 Vermont was admitted
to Statehood. Kentucky and Ten
nessee came in respectively in 1792
and 1796. These three were the only
States admitted in the century of the
Republic's establishment. The nine
teenth century saw twenty-nine
added to the Union, and the twen
tieth, three. The year 1899 holds
the record for the nmber of States
admitted during a twelvemonth, the
two Dakotas, Montana and Washing
ton having come into the Union in the
siDgle month of November. In 1845
Florida and Texas were admitted, in
1890 Idaho and Wyoming and in
1911 Arizona and New Mexico.
Except by division of States already
existing, by their own agreement and
with the approval of congress, no
more States may be created in the
present continental confines of the
I limited States. Texas may, under the
I terms of its admission to the Union,
of its own motion and independent
of the will of Congress, constitute
five States within its borders. In only
Instance has a portibn of a State been
established as a separate common
wealth, that being the case of West
Virginia, which was created during
the Civil War. The divisior of Ter
as into five states would give the
South considerable more power
[ and it has been talked about at dif
ferent times, but has never been seri
ously considered by her people.
In the course of time, no doubt,
the erection of a State or of States
Jin Alaska will be proposed to the
American people, and "possibly some
of the other possessions beyond the
' seas may offer as candidates for
Statehood, and a new policy, never
contemplated by the founders of the
Republic will have to be considered.
It may not be so long, in the present
prospect, before the matter actually
dose come up in relation to Alaska,
which is developing very rapidly. But
unless in the fulness of time, the
present boundaries of the United
States should be extended by the ac
quisition of the contiguous territory
to the north or to the South, the na
tion's mission of raising up into sov
ereign States the territories within
its borders has been completed.
That Cotton Tare.
The custom of deducting one dol
lar from each bale of cotton that
! weighed less than four hundred
nounds will no longer be practised
by the buyers on this market, and in
future farmers selling their cotton
here will be paid for whatever a bale
may weigh regardless of its size.
This is right and proper and why the
custom should have been practised
here and nowhere else is hard to un
derstand. The farmers had made up
their minds that they would not sub
mit to the custom any longer, and
the buyers had to give in or run afoul
of the law which prohibits the cus
tom of deducting for light bales.
Having won this victory, the far
mers should now insist on getting
full tare on each bale of coton they
sell. Under the rule adopted at Liv
erpool, where the price of our cotton
is fixed, it is perfectly legal to put
six per cent of the weight of the lint
cotton in a bale in bagging and ziet
on that bale. That is to say, a bale J
weighing 400 pounds may carry 24
lbs. of covering and tics, 450 pounds I
may carry 27 pounds, 500 may carry
30 pounds and so on. This is the
tare allowed by the people in Liver
pool whan they fix the price of cotton
and the farmer that fails to put it on
loses to that extent.
Some years ago the cotton buyers
in many places refused to buy cotton
that carried over six per cent bag
ging and ties except at a discount of
50 cents per bale no matter what the
bale weighed, showing as their au
thority certain regulations of cotton
exchanges. Thi3 was nothing more
or less than a scheme to beat the far
mer, for it is a well established fact
that the world's cotton prices is es
tablished upon a six per cent tare,
and the farmer who puts on less is
cheated that much. The buyer has
a right to offer what he pleases for
cotton, but be should not attempt to
deprive the farmer of his right to put
six per cent bagging and ties on his
? tic n.

Hard to Get At.
The indicted officials of the wire
trust got off easily with a fine of
$1,000 and payment of costs. Action
was taken against the men individ
ually and not against the corporation
and it was promised that a jail sen
tence would be sought after. How
ever, as usual, it was a fin?, which
to such men was a mere bagatelle,
and no jail. How hard it seems t^ be
to get a member of a trust behind
prison bars. Probably if the wire
trust officials had been poor men con
victed of stealing fire wood or food
there would have been no trouble In
sending them to prison as a warning
to other evil doers. It is such dis
tinctions made becween rich and poor
offenders that create discontent and
too often a suspicion as to the integ
rity of the courts. The adoption of
the recall of judges would change all
this, and that is why President Taft
and other big Republicans oppose it.
They know that if the judges were
made to do their duty, as they would
be if the recall was adopted, that
their friends put up the campaign
boodle for them, would face prison
sentences instead of mere fines for
their open violation of the laws. Un
der the recall judges would no more
be the tools of the trusts, as many of
the United States Judges are now,
but they would regard the interests
of the people also. ,

Valuable Plantation for Sale.
I am offering to sell as a whole
until October the fifteenth, 1911,
one of the best cotton plantations in
Calhoun County. If not sold as a
whole by then I shall cut into small
tracts and sell.
This 'plantation is located within
one mile of Lone Star, S. C, and the
A. C. L. R. R. runs through place,
making it an easy matter to arrange
a plantation siding at almost any
point. There are 1264 acres in the
tract, 430 of which are In swamp and
pasture land, 600 acres now in cul
tivation, and about two hundred that
can be cultivated very easily.
The land is a dark soil, practically
level and free of stumps; there
are twenty good tr-ttlements on the
plantation, an.i the average rent for
the past twelve years has been 2,500
pounds of lint cotton per annum. I
am asking $30,000 for the place, and
left as it is entirely to tenants it
yields a magnificent return on that
amount, but this could be very much
increased by push and personal at
tention, as the character of this land
is 'the very best and repsonds quick
ly to work and fertilizer.
