The acquittal of seven men tried
for complicity in the Coatsville j
lynching shows that the sentiment
North and South does not differ
much when it comes to a matter
of that kind.
Should Governor Blease give up
the fight for reelection as governor
and enters the race for Senator Tin

There will be some long editorial

The trusts should be made to un

a highway on which everyone has
a right to pass without being held
up by the bandits known as the
captains of industry.
Governor Wilson's fellow citizens
want him to exterminate the mos
quitoes up in Jersey. They should
remember that there are some things
that even a great reformer can't do,
and we fear exterminating the mos
quitoes is one of them.
Pr?sident Taft .seems to think
that he can make Rockfellers right,

hand pocket. That is about the on
ly way the so<-called disolutions of

amount to anything.
No trusts should be allowed to

panies by merely droiding out its
assets among them as the Supreme
Court has given the Standard Oil
and the American Tobacco Company
permission to do.

The cable tell us that sixty or
more troop ships have sailed for

heels as soon as they hear the or
The Times and Democrat has no
words of denunciation for the men
who put the Honea Path fiend to
death. We would rather see the law
respected and enforced through the
courts, but when we consider the
fact that a little eleven year old
child was the victim of this burly
brute's lust, we are rather disposed
to excuse the men who shot him
The ease with which the Portu
gese authorities have dispersed the
monarch;al bands that invaded the
country leads to the hope that the
government is firmly established. It
would be a pity if it were other
wise for whatever may be the pres
ant crudeness and inexperience of
the government a republic is more
in harmony with modern ideas of
popular liberty and rights than a
corrupt monarchy like that of which
Manuel was the head.
A desire for wealth may be all
right but a lust for wealth is all
wrong. The desire may express it
self along legitimate lines and mon- 1
oy thus acquired is honestly gained.
But when men have a lust for
wealth they scruple at nothing, they
have no regards for the rights of
others and very little for law if
law stauds in their way. It is this
spirit so dominating most trusts
that has made them so disliked and
suspected by people generally.
Some of Mr. Bryan's politic*1 ?n
emies have discovered another mare's
nest in Mr. Bryan's statement that
he hopes the Republicans will nom
inate La Follette instead of Taft for
president. The nomination of La Fol
Ifctte by the Republicans v^ould forca
the Democrats to nominate a pro
gressive also, and this would insure
the election of a tariff reformer re
gadless of which party won. Where
there is any treason in this on the
part of Mr. Bryan we fail' to see.
Boost Your Home Town.
It is singular how so many peo
ple will yell themselves hoarse root
ing for the home ball team, who
would not give a dollar to establish
a new industry here, nor would they
bother to suggest -to friends contem
plating a removal that this would be
a good town to live in. Tho intense
partisanship manifested in any ath
letic sports in behlf of the home
plaj-ers indicates a large sentiment
of home loyalty. It is an unselfish
sentiment, excellent so far as it goes.
The men on the bleachers do not get
a nickel addition to their v'ages be.
cause home boys win.
Of course in some cases the /cheer
ing ? men may have money on the
game. Yet our observation, is that
the better Is too worried to cheer..
It is the man who wants the home
team to win from simple home loy
aty that makes the noise. Why is it
that this most commendable senti
ment ds so abounding under such
circumstances, and so lacking when
there is still more vital need for its
Tne cities that have grown popu
lous, powerful wealthy thai: have be
come great centers of industrial life
and crerished locations for residence
have become so because some small
group of men loved the soil of those
localities longed to have them true
io high ideals, had faith in their fu
ture, had the self sacrifice to keep
pulling all the tr'me or breath to
spend in mere criticism.
The mainspring of this action is
a home patriotism differing only
from that of the. crowd at the ball
gf.me, in bavin?, a bigger field for
its expession. We may noc all of us
do big things 'for this oity. Not all
of us can be presidents of boards of
trade or land new industries. But
if everyone of us took every possi
ble occasion to say that this is a
business in, a wide spreading circle
mighty good place to live and do
of home patriotism would be let
loose the .final reach of which would
Bright Prospects Ahead.
We do no know a town in the
State that has a brighter prospect
snead for solid growth and healthy
expansion than Orangetiurg.1 All we
have to do is to pull together and
boost a little, and lime will do the
rest. We may have some who do
nothing to help along the growth of
the town. They may neither pull
or push. They are pericctly will
ing to take their share of the bene
fits that are brought by 'he growth
and prosperity of the town, but they
are unwilling to do anything to help
along the movement for a. bigger and
a better Orangeburg.
All we ask of such fonts if there
is any here is that they don't pes
simestic in public so far as the town
is concerned. Don't say that the
town is dead, that its citizens are
back numbers, that the population is
steadily decreasing and a hundred
other evils that exist only in your
own mind. If you can't say any
hing good theu keep still. Don't let
other people know that you haven't
the enengy to move away from such
a miserable hole as you claim you
are living in. If you are a property
owner don't tell the whole world that
your property is worth just half as
much now as it was last year.
It is very possible they may be
lieve you and some day you may
want tc sell that property and you
will be able to get just atjut half its
worth. So you see when you talk
against your home town it only hurt
yourself. Your town has as good a
chance as many other towns, of be
coming an enteresting city. It
needs is a few good "boosters,"
So put your shoulder to the wheel
and "boost" and the result will rich
ly repay you for your trouble.
A Great Loss to Journalism.
The death of W. E. Curtis, the
distinguished newspaper corres
pondent, is a loss to the literary
world in general and to journalism
ia particular that will not speedily
he replaced. A s.reat and observ
vant traveler his impressions of the
lands he visited and of the noted
people he met were given at first
hand. He enjoyed the confidence of
many men high in political life both
in this country and in foreign lands,
and that fact gave his literary pro
ductions additional value. The
charm of his style and his great
command of language helped flo
give an unusual popularity to his
letters written from nearly every
part of the globe. That historical
and other inaccuracies sometimes
appeared in his writings and to
some extent lessened their authority
was but natural considering that
he wrote on almost ev>ery conceiv
able thing he met in his travels and
that oftentimes he was compelled to
write at high pressure. But in
spite of that one drawback Mr.
Curtis' writings were illumining and
instructive to many thousands of
people who but for them would
have had a very limited knowledge
of other lands and the manners,
customs and institutions of their
Speak One Your Choice.
Several prominent men are now
being mentioned for the Democratic
nomination for the presidency, and
now is the time when people are ex
pressing their preference for some
one or other of the many prospect
ive Democratic candidates for the
highest office in tho world. This is
a prerogative which every Democrat
may exercise and no one has the
right, legal or moral, to say him nay.
This liberty of thought, speech and
action is a fundamental principle of
our government and national life.
And in so far as any man shrinks
from making known his preference
out of fear of some other man he is
untrue to that principle and cannot
but suffer in self-respect. And any
man who may use his official or oth
er position to attempt the intimida
tion of one who differs from him as
to choice of candidate also violates
that principle and is 20 true Amer
ican. So let It be known which of
the gentlemen being discussed as the
prospective, leader of the Democracy
is your choice. Which one of them,
Wilson, Clark, Harmon, Under
wood or others, do you think is best
calculated to lead the party to vic
tory next year and serve the people
best when he Is elected. The rank
and file of the party Should speak
out on the subject so as the leaders
will know what to do. ,
Another Triumph for Decency.
Decency and humanity scores an
other triumph in the refusal of the J
British authorities to allow a prize
fight between Johnson, the colored
champion bruiser and an English pu
gilist. While the proposed fight was
advertised as a boxing contest the
^government was not to be hood
winked. The contention of some that
the fight was prohibited solely be
cause of the fear that the white man
would have lost loses its force when
it is remembered that the elegy and
churches of all denominations were
chiefly instrumental in securing the
decision. A prize fight is 'nothing but
a brutal encounter, utterly destitute
of sport revolting to humanity, and
engaged in simply for the money
that Js In it. With the rapidly in
creasing growth of public sentiment
against such affairs the time will
[.soon come when it will be consid
' ered disreputable in the extreme to
[ attend one. * Let us hope that day
will soon come, and come to stay.
