We publish on the first page a'
statement from Gov. Blease in which I
.he says there is no friction between'
t himself and Senator Tilman. .
The report, we believe, that Gov. j
Blease would oppose Senator Till- j
man for the Senate was first pub,-1
lished in Spartanburg. There seems |
to be no truth in the report from
what the Governor says.
The Times, and Democrat want the
ladies to understand that it is in fav
or of their voting whenever they
want to. Wo believe if the right of
suffrage was given them they would
vot* right on all questions.
We hope the fiend that attempted
to assault that lady near Springfield
will be caught and adequately pun
ished by having his necked cracked.
Brute3 who commit such crimes de
serve no more consideration than a
The dastardly crime attempted
near Springfield by a black fiend is
a very poor return for t!oe considera
tion shown the colored people re
cently by the Orangeburg City Coun
cil refusing to allow the "Clansman"
to be played at the Academy of Mu
sic in this city.
The sad news reached Orangeburg
yefrterday of the death of Ex-Con
gressman Patterson at his homo in
Barnweli. Mr. Patterson while in
Congress was an able and true rep
resentative of the people and in his
death the States loses a patriotic
It "will not be long before the wo
men will be given the right to vote
In every state in the Union. Any re
form that is hacked by friends.with
as much influence as the women have
In our homes,'is sure to win out. In
the next ten years the women suff
rage . movement will make great
/ strides everywhere.
If the colored people were as
much opposed to such crimes as was
attempted 'Monday near Springfield
by a member of their rarco as the
white people are, they would cease.
The fiend who attempted that crime
can only escape by the conuivance of
colored people who may harbor and
feed him in his flight.
The Tin:es and Democrat has no
j objection whatever to Clerk, Folk, or
any other good Democrat as a presi
dential candidate, but it favors Wood
row Wilson as the Democratic stand
ard bearer because it believes he is
the strongest candidate, and is a
straight forward honest man.
Dr. Harvey W. Wiley, Chief of the
Government's Chemistry Bureau,
says he has been an advocate of wo
man's suffrage for twenty-five years.
He declared that he has never known
OC an organized band of women be
ing on the wrong side of any ques
tion. 'Every observant man is com
pelled to endorse that statement.
We believe that it is the fixed pur
pose of the people o? South Caro
lina to send Senator Tillman back
to the United States Senate, and we
do not believe that they can be swerv
ed from that purpose by Governor
Blease oi* any other man who may
run against him. They will not soon
forget Senator Tillman's valuable
services in the Senate.
Taft froths a good deal because |
Bryan challenges him to make public |
the names of the men who recom
mended White for Chief Justice and
ether lawyers he lately appointed to
the Supreme Court Bench, but he
takes good care not to let the people
6:now who recommended these men.
If Taft can show by the publication
of the names of those who recom
mended them that the-?e justices were
not appointed by trust Influences, it
will do him more good than all the
denials he can maka Give the public
the names, Mr. Taft.
A long report sent out from Wash
ington to the effect that Morgan and
his many allies will oppose Taft be
cause he is too hard on the trusts,
ends by saying "In some quarters it
Is believed the Taft managers will
tarn this hostility to shrewd account
and use it for the purpose of gain
ing progressive support." This last
paragraph gives the whole scheme
away. Morgan's opposition to Taft
is only feigned for the purpose of side
tracking the position of the Pro
gressive Republicans to him.
In asking for a change of the
schedule on the Pregnall Branch of
the 'Atlantic C&>ast ?Line Railway,
the Orangeburg Chamber or Com
merce has no desire whatever to
hurt EUoree. Its only object is to
enable the people on the line to visit
and leave Orangeburg mere easily
than they now can. As all trains have
to pass right through Elloree thoj
ipropored schedule ought to help that j
l'.irptling, enterprising little city as!
Si as Orangeburg. After .-'11 it is j

Reduce the Cost of living.
One way to reduce the cost of liv
ing it to .make the ground produce
larger crops. Too many farmers are
more intent on adding to the size of
their farms than in getting bigger re
! turns from the land they already own.
jit is well known that in some Europ
; ean countries where conditions of
sofl and climate are scarcely as good
as they are in this country the yield
per acre of crops is much greater
j than with us. Germany produces
twice as many bushels of viaeat to
the acre and England does even bet
We see similar contrasts even in
our own land, and the strange thing
about it is that states possessing the
richest soil sometimes show the
?poorest relative returns in yield. Il
linois, for instance, ranks iigh in
soil fertility while the soil of Connect
icut and Maine is naturally poorer,
yet Connecticut gets 25 ptr cent
more of corn off an acre than Illinois
does, and In wheat Maine gets twice
?as much. A similar condition pre
vails a3 to potatoes, oats and some
j other crops,-and this difference in
yield Is, of course, due to the diff
erence in yield is, of icourse, due to
ertnee between Intensive and
scientific farming and that which to
a large extent is superficial.
: It stands to reason that if a man
ir a benefactor to his race w'10 makes
j two blades of grass grow where but
one grew formerly', so also is the
I man who on a given amount of
I ground doubles the yield of corn,
wheat, and other crops?and the
[thing can be done! That this would
i benefit the consumer goes without
i;aying7 but It would also henefit the
farmer. True there would he a slight
extra cost for labor and perhaps a
somewhat smaller price to* his pro
ducts, but the much larger crop
would more than balance this. Then,
too, it must be remembered that it
requires no more buildings, tools and
fencing for a hundred acre far.a pro
ducing thirty bushels of wheat to the
acre than for the same size farm
that yields but half the amount. And
this fact is equally true as to other
They Will Soon Be Here.
The Price-Campbell cotton picker
[has demonstrated that cotton can be
picked by machinery much faster
j and cheaper than it can be picked by
hand. Among those who witnessed
the demoustration of the Price
Campbell cotton picker aear Char
lotte last week was Mr. D. A. Tomp
kins, a man who hs.s had much to
do with cotton and cotton mill ma
chinery, and who is therefore quali
fied to give an opinion on the ques
tion of machinery. He is hopeful of
the Price-Campbell. machine, which
he says leaves only fibout two and a
half per cent of the cotton in the field.
He says its picking is practically as
'near as can be done by baud, but a
little of the cotton drops from the
picker, making 'he two and a half
per cent referred to above. Nine
of these machines are now at work
in Texas, and, as Mr. Tompkin says,
it looks as if the present machine is
going to stay on the market. Like
all other Inventions theso machines
will be rapidly improved, and in the
next few years tney will, be In use
all over the cotton belt. Then we
will hear no more complaints about
the shortness of <;otton pickers to
gather the crop.
Woman Suffrage Coding.
It makes little difference what we
mero men say or think about the mat
ter, women suffrage is on the way.
There is no discounting the fact that
woman suffrage has made a great
gain in the victory acheived in Cali
fornia. Naturally one looks to the
western states for experiments in leg
islation, economics and social rela
tions because they are les3 influenced
by those old established customs
that affect the eastern states. But the
people of the west are just as quick
in throwing over experiments if they
do not prove satisfactory as they are
in making them. Therefore as equal
suffrage has prevailed' I.". five of the
western and mountain states for
some time the result in California
can only mean that the majority in
that state is satisfied that woman
suffrage has proved suicessful where
tried. It goes without saying that the
cause of woman suffrage has receiv
ed a decided impetus. The question
has not been agitated in the South,
but it will be in the next few years,
and it will win here as it has won
out west. The women will vote when
ever they make up their minds to do
? Social Changes Must Come.
The social unrest now so manifest
in great 'Britian and continental Eu
rope and to a lesser extent in this
country will not down until a radical
readjustment takes place of the
whole social and economic structure.
At least that is the conviction of In
telligent men who have studied the
situation at close range. The masses
have an idea that a more equitable
relation should exist between employ
ers and men, that wealth should be
more equally distributed, and that
wherever remnant of *:he old feud
al system etill exists it should be de
stroyed. A long step forward in this
direction has .been taken In England
in the last two or three years, and
progress along the same lines is also
being made in Germany and other
countries. Apparently the changes
of the next few years will be as mo
mentous as those wrought by the
French Revolution of 17S9. hut hap
ply without the convulsions and
bloodshed that accompanied that
event. And certainly the results will
be more tangible and farreaching
than those of the revo'utionary per
iod of 1 S4S-9.
California Moves Ftunviml.
Most likely it is a surprise to the
majority of people that the majority
in California for the "recall" was
greater than that for the "initiative
and refen nduiu." For both amend
ments the majority was overwhelm
ing, but thai for the tecall exceeds
that for'vthe initiative and referen
dum by several thousand. That ver
dict probably means that the deople
of California are dissatisfied with
some court decisions i^ their own
state and elsewhere, a conviction that
the judiciary, as well as other offi
cials, is not immaculate, and that the
beBt corrective for judicial and other
shortcomings lies in the power of the
people to bring the offenders to ac
count. Evidently, also, the conten
tion that the power to recall will
lessen reverence for the courts and
make judges the mere instruments
of demagogues did not weigh with
