President Taft should have waited
until after the Canada election before
starting on .ais speaking tour among
heathens of the west.
The Sparianburg Street Car Com
pany is clearly in the wrong in the
quarrel with its employees, and we
hope it will lese its fight.

No doubt the closeness of the vote
in Maine on the resubmission of the
prohibitory law is unsatisfactory to
?both sides, but more especially to the
prohibition forces because they have
failed of their object. As the law
will now remain a part of the consi
tution a iihort time longer its sup
porters , should see to it that it is
more vigorously enforced.
Recently both the Southern Rail
way and the Atlantic Coast Line
Railway arbitrated threatened trou
ble with some of their employees,
and settled the differences satisfac
torily to all parties, and in this way
avoided a lockout. We commend the
sensible 'Course of these great cor
porations to the management of the
Street Car Company at Spartanburg.
The Winnipeg Tribune says ' "It
Is interesting to observe that the very
nation which rejected Bryan as a can
didate for the presidency is coming to
regard the ideas for which he stood
a3 desirable. Save for his fatuous
advocacy of the free silver Mr. Bryan
has stood, ior few propositions which
are not coming into popular favor."
Yet some so-called Democratic news
papers speak of Bryan as the wreck
er of the Democratic party. i
The opposition to the prohibition
law in Ms.lne was not confined to the
advocates of saloons but embraced
many tem perance men who are prohi
bitionists in principle, but who felt
that the present law was not enforc
ed in the larger cities and that there
was no disposition to enforce it.
Therefor:* they felt that a good coun
ty option law would be more effec
tive. Certainly there is no evidence
that the opposition to the saloon in
Maine is less than it ever was.
In opposing the recall in the recent
governor's convention, Governor
O'Neal, of Oklahoma, spoke of "the
caprice of the majority," and added
that "when you establish an arbi
trary recall of judges you have in
stituted mob law in this country."
"Don't you all forget that the caprice
of a majority gave you all your jobs,"
broke in Governor Gilchrist of Flori
da, in a soft southern drawl, and for
the moment there was peace that fol
lowed the laugh from the two hun
dred me a and women in the audience.
Abusing an opponent and calling
him hard names are not argument.
So far f rom being argument or giving
strength to the party or cause in
whose behalf they are used but prove
weakness. When reforms are urged
that politics may be made purer or
businessi life more righteous those
who advocate the reforms are sure
to be branded as traitors, socialists,
disturbers, and what not. That has
always been the case and always will
be, but the ultimate effect is injury
to the wrongdoers and not to the
cause of purity.
England is facing an industrial rev
olution, which is simply a reasonable
demand for a reasonable wage. It is
the plea of the laborer for a more eqi
table arrangement between master
and men. They have seen the nobili
ty and capitalists reveling in wealth,
enjoying every luxury, and, with few
exceptions, indifferent to the wants
of the masses have been receiving,
especially in some industries, a mere
pittance each week scarcely suffici
ent to hold body and soul together.
The edict has gone forth that such
an intolerable condition must cease.
Hold for Better Prices,
The fight of the farmers to get a
fair price for his cotton should be
made the fight of every one who is
Interested in the prosperity of the
South. It is not strange, than, that
so many prominent men are ready
and willing to help the farmer in his
fight. Governor Hoke Smith wants
the farmers of Georgia to hc,d back
their cotton and market it gradually
not sacrificing by flooding tue mar
ket this early in the season. He
figures that every cent per pound
added to the price of cotton means
160,000,000 to the South.
To help tl$5 Farmers' Union in its
campaign of education, wherein sev
eral speakers will be put in the field
to explain to the farmers the advan
tage of holding their cotton for a 15
cents market, Governor Smith gave
his check for $100 to John T. McDan
iel, secretary of the Georgia Farmers'
Union. Mr. McDaniel called on the
governor to thank him for a letter
written to Governor O'Neal, of Ala
bama, on the occasion of the cotton
congress last week, wherein he point
ed out the necessity of holding the
cotton crop and marketing it grad
In expressing his views o& the cot
ton situation, Governor Smith said he
believe. I ;hat all the citizen:) will be
benefitted by the fanners not sacri
ficing their cotton, and as he very
cordially approved the work of the
Farmers' Union in this regard, he
was glad to contribute a little to
wards the expense of their campaign.
He said he felt that the work the
farmers were doing is for the bene
fit of all of us and not simply for
themselves and he had not. a doubt
that cotton is worth more than the
present price it is bringing.
What Smith says applies to all
in every part of the South. He says,
"I am confident that while the crop
will be a good one, the present price
is fixed in Liverpool on the basis
that the present crop is a bumper
crop. I heard men in New York
during the past ten days admit that
the present price was fixed upon the
idea that the crop would run to over
fourteen million bales. I can under
stand how this mistake has been
made. Sixty days ago it looked like
the biggest crop the South has ever
had. 1 have no doubt that cotton in
Georgia went off 25 per cent, since
that time, and I really believe that
the present price of cotton is fixed
up/on the idea that the amount raised
will be from 20to 30 per cent, above
the actual crop.
"If it was today conceded that the
crop would not exceed thirteen mil
lion bales, cotton would be selling at
! fourteen cents, I never felt more cer
tain that cotton will sell higher later
on, I would like to see the farmers
receive when they seil? its full value,
and even outside of farmers I would
like to see our state and our section
receive its full value. A loss of one
per cent per pound means $60,000.
0C0 loss to the South. I am sure it is
selling several cents per pound less
than it is worth. Two cents per
pound more even would mean $120,
000,000 to the South. I hate to see
our section lose the money." -
The Boy and His Opinions.
In the "Woman's Home Companion
-for September a writer on "The Boy
and His Opinions." reports a
case that contains valuable lessons
for ,both boys and mothers. "My
son," a mother said, with, perhaps a
note of amused irritation in her voice,
to the spruce college-boy, who had
questioned the wisdom of one of her
actions, "you must understand once
for all that I do not wish to have you
criticise me on any subject whatso
The lad opened wide'his eyes, and
asked, "do you mean I am never to
I tell you when you do a thing I think
isn't right." "I mean just that,"
replied the mother. "For a number
of years I have conducted my affairs
with tolerable success without the
benefit of your criticism, and I have
faith to believe I can keep on doing
it. Of course, you will criticise me ,
in your own mind; that is quite nat
ural and I take it for granted; but
I don't wish to hear your critcism
unless I ask for it."
Of course the boy did not like it,
but he respected his mother too much
to show any evidence of that fact.
The writer in the Woman's Home
Companion says he admired the
mother for having given the boy the
advice she did, and goes on to say
that no essential part of reaching a
boy to think for himself is served by '
permitting him to find fault with his 1
parents. As the mother 'jald he is
likely to criticise mentally the con
duct and demeanor of his parents, to
look down upon their beliefs and
theories and flatter himse).? he could
manage most of their affairs far bet
ter than they themselves do.
All this is in a way a part of the
boy's training in learning to think
and act for himself, and the fact that
he will probably discard most of his
experimental theories, which his par- -
ents had tested and thrown aside in ]
their younger days, and come around
eventually to the codes oi. his father
and mother, does not make the edu
cational value of the earlier process
any less. But there is no gain for
him in the public expression of his
adverse opinions, and the self-con
trol involved in their repression is
good for his soul.
In all other lines, however, en
courage your children to air their
views. Perhaps this might not be
so desirable if they were likely not
to ;be your views as well as his. But
the wandering seeds of opinion to
which I have already referred will '
grow in the soil you have cultivated
and you will be able to advise him
which are weeds to be rooted out, and
which are useful growths; to be tend
ed and fostered. Remember that
some day your boys and girls will
have to do all their own thinking.
Trying to Mend His Fences.
President Taft is now out West on
a political junket trying to mend his
fences and induce the Insurgent Re
publicans to return to the fold. No
one, whatever his politics, will be
grudge him a good time in his swing
around the circle. Party loyalty is
not usually allowed to conflict with
that good humor and sense of fair
ness so characteristic of Americans
and therefore however divergent may
be the views as to the policy of such
a trip and the results to flow from
it the President will invariably meet
with courtesy and respect and be fol
lowed with the ibest wishes for all
the personal enjoyment he can get
out of his long itinerary.
Whether it is or is not the wis
est course for a president to engage
In what is virtually a campaign for
renominatlon, will, of course', be vart
lously estimated. Biut anyway It
seems now to be the fashion, and for
that matter many, if not most of the
presidents, have at some time dur
ing their term of office traveled ex
tensively to meet the people and jus
tify their own administration. '
It is difficult to judge as to the
value of such itineraries because so
much depends upon the personality
of those who make them and of the
political conditions at the time they
With President Taft the uncertain
ty is all the greater becauso of the
very peculiar conditions existing in
both great political parties and the
fact that the greater part of his jour
ney will be through "the enemy's"
country. It will require great tact
and wisdom under such circumstan
ces to avoid making some fatal mis
take of speech or act. Of course Mr.
Taft's supporters will hope that this
may be avoided and that great bene
fit may result to him and his cause.
As for his opponents their wishes will
naturally be of an opposite character.
But all that feling is political only
and apart from that all citizens will
join in wishing the first citizen of
the country a pleasant and safe jour
