GOOD WORE DONE
WORKERS FOR ORANGEBURG
PLAN FOR THE FUTURE.
Enthusiastic Business Meeting Held
And Sumptuous Banquet Enjoyed
by Chamber of Commerce.
One of the most enthusiastic bus
'iness. and we believe, result produc
*xrg meetings ever held ty the Orange
arg Chamber of Commerce was 'held
last Wednesday evening at the Court
house. The meeting was largely at
tended, and all present seemed to be
imbued with the same laudable spir
it, which was to push Orangeburg
and all her interests in all legitimate
avenues of progress. We are sure
this meeting will bear fruit.
The serni-annuel bsjiquet of the
-organization followed the business
meeting, and it too was all that
could be desired, and was enjoyed by
some one hundred and eighty bus
iness men of the city and invited
guests. It was a most enjoyable
feast, and the committee of gentle
men who superintended its prepara
tion and serving deserves a vote of
thanks for the suocess of this part
of the program. It will be long re
membered as a very enjoyable occa
President Cart, of the Chamber
of Commerce, presided at both the
business meeting and banquet with
grace and dignity. He called the bus
iness at the courthouse to order at
eight o'clock, and the members lost
no time in getting down to work. Af
ter the accomplished and efficient
Secretary, Col. Atticus H. Marchant,
?had read the minutes of the last
meeting of the Chamber of Com
merce, the business of the evening
was dispatched rapidly.
Mr. W. L. Moseley, who is chair
man of a committee charged with
securing a more favorable schedule
on the Pregnall Branch of the Atlan
tic Coast. Line Railway, reported that
an effort was being made to have the
railroad operate a schedule on this
branch during the fair which will
bring visitors here in the morning
and permit them to remain the entire
day In the city. Is is hoped tha.t this
will be a practical demonstration
which will untimately prove the ben
efit of a permanent schedule of this
The matter of a better service in
this city from both the Western Un
ion Telegraph Company and the
Southern Bell Telephone Comp?ny
was taken up, and it was stated that
communications had been forwarded
to the officials of both of these com
panies and that the officials had
promised to look into the complaints.
Manager Walker of the telephone
company stated that he 'hadrecom
jnended the change in the directory
as suggested at a former meeting.
Col. Marchant stated that in conse
quence of much complaint on the
part of the farmers, a joint meeting
jof the Cotton Committee and a com
mittee from the City Council was
(held Wednesday mo rain's to devise
come plan for the moving of cotton i
onore rapidly through the city. It
?ras the sense of that meeting that
?the two weighers be asked to go one
to each depot and do the weighing
there and that the farmers would be
paid tho ten cents drayage deliver
ing same to the depotb. This would
"be the means of considerable time
Saved both to the farmers in secur
ing their checks and also to the cot
ton buyers in shipping, their cotton.
The Chamber adopted this resolution
which urges that this plan be put in
?effect by the first of January.
President Cart called attention to
tho fac: that the funds in the treas
ury was very low and that they
needed replenishing at once, and
urged that contributions to meet the
expenses of the Chamber of Com
merce for another year was in order.
'It was suggested that $2,100 would
be necessary to carry on the work
of the body, ?nd a oall for donations
was made. Tin* call met a hearty re
sponse, and it is hoped that the
amount will be raised. All recog
nize the valuable work *ha.t has been
done "by" Col. Marchunt as Commer
cial Secretary of tut Charmber and
are willing to contribute to Keep the
work going on.
Col. Marchant, who is always prac
tical, made four suggestions for the
action of the Chamber. 'He said the
need of dwelling houses to rent was
great, and urged t'aat more be built
by the capitalists of the city. He
also suggested that the business men
of the city hold a Trades Display one
night during the fair and offer prizes
for the best lloats. The suggestion
?was adopted and Mr. Sol Kohn pledg
ed on behalf of the fair association
"$15 for prizes. The Chamber of
Commerce supplemented this amount
with $25, making a total of $4 0 to
be awarded. The display will be
held under the auspices of the Cham
ber of Commerce and a committee
will be named to have charge. The
Secretary also suggested that an in
vitation be extended to the Confed
erate Veterans of the Stau to hold
the next annual reunion in this city.
A committee will be appointed to
look into this mutter.
Col. Marchant then brought up
the matter of the Orangeburg Col
lege. This institution, he said, badly
needed more donatories, as a num
ber of boys are now housed, off the
campus. Five thousand dollars
would erect a building which would
meet the present needs of the insti
tution. With this improvement it
was thought that a student body of
?five hundred could be brought to
this school, which would mean a
great deal to the city.
It was suggested by Secretary
Marchant that a company be'organ-1
ized with a total of 1000 shares at
$25 per share and that the school
be purchased outright and pushed to J
the front. President Peterson, of
the College, followed Col. Marchant,
-endorsing all he said, and spoke of
plans along ine same lines as those
suggested by Secretary Marchant.
The proposition was loudly applaud
ed and a committee was authorized
to look into the matter.
Mr. John T. Wise moved that the
Chamber of Commerce petition the
City Council to put a prohibitory li
cense on all peddlers coming to the
city. He said *hat they were sim
ply a bunch of fakirs and that the
merchants of the city suffered no lit
tle as a result of their visits here.
A committee was named to go before
the City Council at the next meeting
and present the request. The follow
ing is the committee: J. T. Wise,
O. K. Wilson, W. R. Lowman, A. L.
Dukes and M. Mirmow.
This brought the business meet
ing to a close, and those holding
tickets for the banquet fell in line
two deep and marched to the arm
ory where the banquet was to be
served. The procession was headed
by the Orange burg Military Band.
The line cr ma~ch was down Russell
Street to Ej-oughten and thence up
Russell to Micldleton street to the
armory at the Academy of Music.
The band also discoursed sweet mu
sic at the banquet, and was highly
complimented oy the visitors who
were at the ,b?nffuet.
President Cart acted as toast
master, and he made a good one.
He first called upon Mayor Sain who
pledged himself to do all he could
for the advancement of the city and
said he was working with the others
for a better and a bigger Orange
burg. The remarks of the Mayor
were received with applause.
The next speaker was Mr. M. G.
Walker, of the Carolina Traction
Company. Mr. Walker is interested
in the construction of electric car
lines for small cities and is endeav
orng to interest Orangeburg in such
a project. He said by the use of the
storage battery cars recently invent
ed by Mr. Edison, it is now possible
to construct a car system of three
miles in length in this city at a total
cost of about 35,000. Mr. Walker
explained in technical terms the ad
vantages of such a system which
would be operated at a very small
cost. He is now building a line at
Secretary and General Manager G.
F. Stephenson, of the National Corn
was called on next. Mr. Stephenson
spoke of the work of the Corn Show
and the benefit its coming to Colum
j bia would he to the whole State.
He said 'he was delighted to meet
the business men of Orangeburg and
expressed his pleasure at attending
the meeting of the Chamber and the
?Mr. A. G. Smith of the Department
of Agriculture of the United States
Government then made a short talk
in which he impressed the fact that
drainage for the farms in this sec
tion is now the most important mat
ter to be considered. He urged the
Chamber of Commerce to aid the far
mers in every way possible, and urg
ed tha> the importance of drainage
Mr. J. B. Finster of the Land and
Industrial Department of the South
ern Railway then made a short talk
in which he announced and pledged
the support of this railroad in devel
oping this particular section of the
country. He told of the means of
advertising which are now being em
ployed in ^pr-jsenting the advantages
of this section, and he 'hoped to bring
many farmers from the north and
middle west to take over small farms
in this Stak.
Col. W. G. Smith then spoke, open
ing his remarks by announcing that
be would not take up the time of
those present by a lengthy talk. He
told the visitors that Orangeburg
was the best place on the map, be
cause everybody who lived here
thinks so, and that this county can
grow corn a? well as cotton and oth
Mr. 0. K. Wilson, leader of the
Orangeburg Military Band, on being
called on said he was at the head of
the biggest boosting organization in
the city, referring to the band. Those
Presen^ agrc-ed with Mr. Wilson, as
the band had given an exhibition of
its boosting qualities that evenirg in
the sweet music it furnished.
'Secretary Marchant responded to
a call by saying it was good to see
such a gathering as was present at
the banquet, for it meant that the
business men of the city were inter
ested in their home town and they
intended to see her progress.
Mr. Sol Mohn told of his visit to
l.oston as the representative of the
Orange.burf; Ad. Club las? August.
He said he was questioned on every
side about the South and her pro
gress. He said he' told them the
South couU; grow corn, carry on big
enterprises and was fast 'getting rich.
This about brought the delightful
occasion to an end, but before break
ing up a vote of thanks was tender
ed the visitors, who had honored the
meeting and the banquet with their
presence and good counsel. Thus
ended one of the most successful and
pleasant aftairs of the kind ever held
Cloudburst Near Fort Motto.
A dispatch from Fort Motte says on
Wednesday afternoon there was the
heaviest rainfall that that section has
had for a year or more. The heavy
downpour of rain caused the pond of
the McKensie Mill to overflow and
wash away the mill. This plant was
equipped with a good system antf
grist mill, leased by Mr. G. W. Wil
lard. Less about $5,000. Low
places in cotton fields were complete
ly covered with water, almost com
pletely destroying the cotton, much
of which had not been picked over
for the first time.
Edisto Rifles Reorganized.
The Edisto Rifles reorganized on
Thursday night by electing the fol
lowing officers: W. C. Crum, Jr., cap
tain; W. W. Dukes, first lieutenant;

enrolled Thursday night. There are
others T/ho will enroll later.
THE STATE BEING OVERRUN BY
MANY KINDS OP PESTS.
This Is An Object Lesson That
May Be Profitable If We Profit
It does not require scientific know
ledge but merely ordinary observa
tion to convince the farmer and other
citizens that South Carolina is now
receiving an invasion of insect with
out parallel in the present genera
The Pine Bark Beetle has riddled
the pines of the Up-Country and is
rapidly movini eastward into the
great commercial pine belt. In ord
er to check that insect energetic
measures must be undertaken and
kept up for a number of years.
The Pea Curculio did immense
damage in certain sections early in
the year by cutting off cotton blooms
and reports from Whitmire, in New
berry county, and elsewhere show
that the Melancholy Rose Beetle is
repeating what he accomplished two
years ago in other sections.
Several small Invasions of grass
hoppers, resulting in wiping out
small fields of corn (one of forty
acres near Columbia and one of thir
ty acres in Aiken County) are also
indications of far worse to come.
The whole Up-Country is being
swept uy a mosquito plague that in
certain towns has reached enormous
proportions. Greenville has been
carrying on a war against these pests
through, its health office. Capt. P.
S. Land, of Columbia, for many years
a conductor on the old Columbia and
Greenville railroad, says that thirty
years ago mosquitos were practically
unknown from Greenville to Colum
bia?a statement that any old citi
zen will confirm.
The list of destructive insects, now
for the first time in evidence, is a
long one, and space is lacking mere
ly to chronicle it. Enough has been
said to call attention to a most sin
ister and important fact.
At the last session of the General
Assembly I appeared before commit
tee on Fish, Forestry and Game and
stated to that body that "before the
Boll Weevil arrived there would he
such an outbreak of insects as would
jar the teeth in their heads." They
will remember that prediction, which
has already come true, although
more is to follow. If any member
of that committee has any doubt an
his mind, he has only to go into the
Cp-Country and see for himself.
The situation has been brought
about by a rapidly diminshing bird
supply, which the General Assembly
has done nothing to check, for noth
ing but nominal protection is accord
ed birds, there being no way whereby
the laws can be enforced.
In the ca?e of the Pine Bank Beet
le Dr. F. E. L. Beel, of the Biologi
cal Survey, writes me that Scolytid
beetles (the genus to which the Pine
ark Beetle belongs) have been found
not only in the stomachs of wood
peckers, which tear off the bark to get
at them, but also in the stomachs of
nighthawks, flycatchers and other
birds whose food is taken on the
wing. The loss of birds has meant
an ou-.break of beetles and the farm
er pays the freight.
It is also true that nighthawks (or
bullbs.ts) along with martins, chim
ney swifts and swallows, feed very
largely on mosquitoes, taking thous
ands at a meal. Inasmuch as these
birds must fill their stomachs from
eight time to ten times daily, one
can see what an enormous amount of
mosquitoes would be carried off by
In other words, so long as these
birds were plentiful and unmolested
mosquitoes were kept within the
bounds set by nature. With the
birds destroyed below the point of
efficiency, the pests spread. Night
hawks (bullbats) have been reported
as being shot at different points all
over the State, but this department
is powerless to take effective action
without money to hire wardens and
to prosecute cases.
It is nothing less than a special
act of Providence that the Cotton
caterpillars (called Army worms
generally) ca)"^ so late in the season.
Otherwise the tirst crop would have
gone the way of the top crop.
Now it does not matter what any
man's previous notions have been,
he must recognize facts when ho sees
them, if he is an honest man. More
over I have told the General Assem
bly that they need not believe my
unsupported word, but that the gov-i
eminent scientists will furnish them
independent information as to the
situation whenever they ask for it.
If what I have told them does not
conform to ;he facts, there is an easy
way to prove it.
But the General Assembly Jias not
done this. No action has been taken
to get information; nothing has been
done to protect the farmers of the
State, and if the cotton Boll Weevil
finds the State unprepared, then the
men charged with the rsponsibility
will be liable to the grave charge of
criminal carelessness with a public
It is the duty of the General As
sembly to take steps at once to safe-i
guard the interests of the farmers of!
the State. There is no time to waste
and no time to argue with individ-j
uahs. The law should be passed and
the people informed afterwards, for j
it is their own fault if they do not
know now. Ignorance is always cost
ly in this instance it will be fatal.

NEGRO KILLED AT FERGUSON.
Not Knowing the Danger He Step
ped on the Third Rail.
A negro was electrocuted and in
stantly killed at the Santee Cypress
Lumber Company's mill at Fergu
son one day last week. The negro
was a new 'hand at the mill, and 'not
knowing the danger, stepped on the
third rail which carries the electric
current that moves the cars on the
tramway in the lumber yard? of the
big plant and was instantly killed
.by the passage of nearly ei'gM thou
sand volts through his body. The
poor fellow was cut down so quick
that he did not know what hit him.
The Journal says it. C. E. Mc
Honacker, manager of the plant,
whose home is in Branchville, saw
the negro killed. The tram cars are
operated by a side rail placed along
the track. An iron shoe connects
with the rail supplying current to the
motor cars. The third rail is high
power carrying 7,600 volts, alterna
ting current. The exposed rail is
very dangerous, but all employees
are warned to keep clear of it and
they soon become acustomed to a

FREIGHT TRAIN WRECKED.

As stated in the last issue of The

Wednesday morning just above the

The Branchville Journal says one
of the finest specimens of okra it has
even seen was brought to the Jour
nal office by Mr. A. Evans, who grew
it in his garden in Branchville. The
stalk was five feet high until the
weight of fruit upon it broke it down.
The entire stalk bore thirty-six pods
of okra averaging eight inches in
length. The porton of the stalk that
can now be seen in the Journal of
fices measures twenty-seven inches
and bears thirty large pods. Mr.
Evans is saving- the specimen for ex
hibition at the county fair.
Cotton in Warehouses.
The fanners of Orangeburg county
are beginnng to realize the impor
tance of 'holding their cotton for
higher prices and llu- warehouses of
this city and county arc Oiling with
the fleecy staple. A number of farm
ers have sold enough cotton to meet
most of their obligations or to pay
enough on them to tide them over
for some months. The farmers are
determined not to sacrifice their cot
ton at present prices if they can pos
sibly help themselves, and desperate
efforts are now being made along
Most Fruitful Cotton Stalk.
The Branchville Journal says by
for the most fruitful stalk of cotton
we have seen this season wag

week by .Mr. Frank Fairey who farms

high and 5 1-2 feet In diameter.
There were S7 open bolls and 1."?
green bolls while 1". other bolls had
