law will be eventually adopted by
all the states, 6impiy because it is
a good law.

Governor Woodrow Wilson may
talk too much to please his critics,
but there is no denyiDg the fact that
when he does talk he knows what he
is talking about. He -is no respector
of bosses, and hits Democrat as well
A staff correspondent of the New
York World, who is traveling with
President Taft, writes from Hastings,
Nebraska, to his papeir that "the
general opinion among Republicans
is that the state is ready to go Dem
ocratic next year, if Woodrow Wil
son is the candidate."
Woodrow Wilson does not put his
trust in political bosses, but in the
people . He says he is for a'nything
that will give them direct control of
their own affairs. Yet tbere are many
who call themselves Democrats who
are oposed to the people calling down
a corrupt judge.
If is stated that Governor Please is
absolutely opposed to the recall of
judges. Is the governor among those
who are afraid of the "caprice of the
majority?" He should be the last
man in the "State to take such a posi
tion as that, because the "caprice of
the majority" elected him Governor,
and he should be willing to trust the
The "Tillmanite" who wrote to the
Augusta Herald that Blease will be
re-elected governor, later on sent to
tbe United States Senate, and that
"we are going to draw the lines again
and fill every office from coroner to
United States senator with true blue
Tillmanites," will not be such an en
thusiastic Blease man probably when
he hears that tbe governor accuses
Senator Tillman of telling falsehoods.
The Newberry Observer says:"" 'df
Governor Blease wants to get even
with the editors, let him advocate a
law to prohibit the railroads from is
suinr free passes to them. That will
be a solar plexus, if he can just get
the bill through." At the sametime
he would bring joy to the hearts of
two of his most bitter editor opon
ents .In the State, who use to ride

which is an emphatic if not euphem

that things are better somewhere

The mother of the fiend that was
lynched at Honea Path Tuesday night
refused to receive his body because
of the horrible crime he had commit

ple of the community refused to have
it buried in their cemetery for the

Jackson stripe were treated as he
was by the better class of colored

Trying the Same Game.
The Wall Street crowd will try to
work the same game on the Demo
crats in the next Presidential election
that they did when they pretended to
desire Mr. Parker's election over Mr.
Roosevelt. They spoke well of Mr.
Parker and abused Roosevelt, until
after the two nominations were made
and then they come ovt and threw
their influence for Roosevelt, furnish
ing all the money he reeded to fin
ance the campaign. That they will
try to work the same gc.me next year
is now beginning to crop out. But it
Will not succeed.
Recently a dispatch was sent out
from Washington in which it was
asked "will Wall Street withdraw its
powerful financial, industrial and
commercial influence from the Taft
re-election .boom?" The dispatch then
goes on to say "that is a question that
has been agitating the Taft political
boomers for months past. There is
fear that the financiers will forsake
the president, owing to the activity
of the administration in its anti-trust
campaign." It is further stated that
no feelers have been put out by the
Taft forces in this respect yet.
Then it is further alleged in the
dispatch that retaliation on the pres
ent administration by Wall Street
is looked for by a number of politi
cians in the Democratic party as well
as in the Republican party. Resent
ment against the anti trust zeal of
Attorney General Wickersham has
been at a high pitch for a long time.
Wickersham, they say, has been per
sistent in his warfare against what
President Taft has termed "bad
trusts." Other trusts that were not
so designated were brought to the
attention^ of the department of jus
lice and either suffered through pros
ecution, or were dissolved or com
pletely put out of business.
This is said to have engendered a
spirit of unrest and Wall Street pre
pared to bluff out the president and
his attorney general. Wall Street
did not succeed and the American
Tobacco and Standard Oil company
were proceeded against. This brought
the whole matter to a climax. The
administration hit two powerful con
corns as well as a group of very
powerful financers. It is now a ques
tion of supporting a Democratic pres
idential nominee or getting a private
word from the administration that
trust busting and corporation dises
tablishment will be discontined as an
This bait for the Democrats is now
brought out and dangled before their
eyes, as will be seen by what follows.
It is reported, says the dispatch, that
the interests represented in Wall
Street, .believe they have no hope In
the Republican party, and that if
they should unload Taft it would
nominate only some other Republi
can even less satisfactory to business.
Therefore the Democrats would ap
pear to be the only party which af
fords a reasonable chance of taking
the more moderate view of the rela
tion of the government to big corpor
ations. The next paragraph shows
how they expect to get the Demo
crats to take the bait.
It is claimed that according to the
gossip in political centers, the prob
ability is that Wall Street will drop
Taft. According to one of the mem
bers of a certain political following
Wall Street is now seriously contem
plating what its move will be in this
direction. The president's addresses
cn his western trip will be followed
closely as well as the activities ol
Attorney General Wickersham this
fall. This condition of affairs has
started tongues wagging, and the
opinion seems to be that Harmon will
get Wall Street to support Taft is
The Democrats, as we said above
were fooled once by Wall Street, but
they will not allow themselves to be
fooled again. Wall Street wants Har
mon nominated by the Democrats,
but it has no idea of supporting him
if he is nominated. Wall Street is
well satisfied with Taft and his way
of trust busting. Wall Street knows
that the trusts never had a better
friend or more pliant tool in the
white house than Taft, and the talk
about his being opposed by Wall
Street is a subtefuge to fool the Dem
ocrats and the people, but tho scheme
will not work this time.
Orangr.burg and That Invitation.
j The report that Orangeburg had
invited the Confederate Veterans of
the State to hold their next reunion
here was a mistake, as we intimated
it was. The Orangeburg Confederate
Camp of Veterans attended the late
reunion at Columbia in a body, but
11hey did not extend an invitation on
'the part of their camp nor of the
city for the veterans to hold their
Ireunion in Miis city next year. It
is all true that a man from this city
who is not a veteran called out one
day In the meeting that the veterans
must meet next year in Orangebip-g,
but he represented no one but him
self, and little or no attention was
I paid to what he said by the Oran.'c
| burg veterans who were present. Xo
place in the South holds the Confed
erate Veterans in higher esteem than
Orangeburg, and no place would feel
j more highly honored in entertaining
I them than Orangeburg, the only trou
ble being our lack of resources to
entertain them as we think they
should be entertained. However, the
i veterans may rest assured that Or
i augeburj! will never shut her doors
in their face, and if they are not in
vited to meet at some place wh.r
they could get better entertainment
I than we may be able to give them,
j they will be doubly welcome to meet
: at Orangeburg next year.
Wrong Way to Boost.
The booster train that was run by
some of the business men of Rich
mond through Xorth Carolina seems
to have done the city it went out to
boost more harm than good. It has
been roundly roasted by many of the
grcd people of the Old North State,
end justly so.
It seems that in the baggage
coach ahead representatives of Rich
moid whiskey houses had sample bot
tles of ' fire water" which they threw
out at every town in which the train
stopped, with the resu't that the
whole thing became dispusting to a
I very large number of people. Spea.k
;Eg of the stop f.i the train in Mon

"The giving a*vay of liquor to a
labble who scrambled for it like pigs

1 am offe-ing 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

This plantation is located within
one mile of Lone Star, S. C. ami the
A. C. L. R. P.. runs through place,
making it. an easy matter to arrange
a plantaiion siding at almost any
point. There arc 1264 acres in the
tract. 430 of which arc in swamp and
I pasture land. C00 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 settlements on the
plantation, an 1 thr average rent for
the past twelve years has been 25,000
pounds of lint cotton per annum. I
am asking $3 0,000 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
