The Steel Trust magnates are not
at all alarmed at Taft's little game

When any political candidate has

If Governor Blease believes ttiat^
"Red Mike," the notorious pickpock

convinced that he is mistaken is for

his watch or pocket book.
(No one can reasonably complain of
that natural increase of cost of living
which results from the lessened pur

what people do justly complain of is
the artificially higher price that the
trusts compel them to pay.

About the only effect the suit

While in Spartanburg last week
Governor Blease said that he prob
ably would visit some of the nearby
cotton mills and see his friends. He
said he always liked to meet the mill
workers, as it was they who elected
him. To a large extent that is true,
and the Governor is right in giving
the mill people credit for what they
did for him.
Some people have strange ideas
as to business morality. 'They are
very exact in dealing with other men
la business, but when it comes to
their relations with the national gov
ernment their conduct is sometimes
very diffprent. Men who would un

individual do not hesitate to defraud
the customs of thousands of dollars,
and in thus defrauding to perjure*
themselves up to the hilt.
However divergent may be the
views on some of the amendments to
the constiruion recently adopted by
California, in all likelihood there is
unanimous chorus of approval as to
the amendment whereby the criminal
procedure will be greatly simplified.
In fact its adoption sweeps away a
wholo lot of quibbling, technicalities
and other legal cobwebs, in which j
exports may delight, but which time
?'lid av-ain have produced grave mis- j
s -ringe of justice. No longer will

General Northrop Criticised.
General L. E. Northrop, of
Charleston, who ws.* oommissary
General, during the War Between
the Sections, of the Confederate
States at Richmond, has been sound
ly criticised for the way he managed
the subsistence department of the
Confederate army. Genera! Johnson
Hagood, who was one of the best
and bravest of the .Southern gener
als, in his memoirs caustically crit
icized General Northrop, charging
that he was incompetent and neg
[lectful in the responsible position
to which he had been assigned.
Thomas Nelson Page is also criticis
ing General Northrop. In an article
in Scribner's Magazine on "General
Lee and the Confederate Govern
ment" Mr. Page charges in effect
that the commissary general fatali}
hampered the operations of the Ar
my of Northern Virginia in the
spring of \S63. Mr. Page concedes
that General Northrop was patriotic
and honest, but says in substance
that he was also obstinate, irascible
and theoretical. General Northrop
was icriticised early in the war by
General Beauregard, who severely
arraigned him for th" way he treated
the army in Virginia immediately
before and after thu first battle of
On August 23, 1861, right after
the above battle, General Bea.ure
gard, ha^/ing complained several
times before of th-:- inefficiency of
General Northrop wrote to President
Davis from Mancsses, "I have
the honor to enclose you here
with a copy of the statement of
provisions, etc., regaining on hand
at this point and available, on the
21st instant, for the army of the
Potamac. by which it will be seen
that little improvement has taken
place in that respect since I last had
the honor of addressing your Excel
lency on the subject on the 10tb*in
General Beauregard then went on
to say that the army was still as un
prepared to advance or retreat in
consequence of the lack of rations
as well as wagons as at the close of
the battle. "A serious accident to
t*"" railroads from here to Richmond
would place the ?.my in quite a
critical condition so far as its sub
sistence is concerned," said he, Gen
eral Beauregard had implicit confi
dence in General Nortihrop's person
al integrity and patriotism, but he
thought a younger and more active
man was required to properly dis
charge the duties of the position
that General NorL.rop held.
Wall Street's Game of Bluff.
A gentleman of Columbia handed
to The State a printed marked let
ter, dated October 16, 1911, sent out
by "Warren W. Erwin & Co.' Mem
bers Consolidated Stock Exchange"
cf New York, frora which the fol
lowing paragraph if taken:
A few weeks or months ago Wall
Street expected to do what it could
to reelect President Taft. Today it
is turning from him and expects to
jjack Governor Harmon or some oth
er suppsedly sate and conservative
Democrat. This chsnge of the pojiti
al outlook in Wall Street indicates
clearly the despers teness of the situ
ation in Wall Street's view.
Much of this kind of stuff is being
sent out from Washington by a bu
reau evidently established by Wall
Street for the purpose of trying to
fool the country that Mr. Taft is no
longer a favorite with the trusts.
This talk is being indulged in
by the democratic interests for
the purpose of killing off the
Progressive Republican movement,
which-, if continued, is sure to
defeat Taft or any other cand
idate the Republicans may nom
inate. If Wall Street and the Trusts
tan fool the country into the belief
that they are opposed to the re-elec
tion of Taft because of his hostility
to them, they think that the Pro
gressive Republicans could be
brought to his support, an 1 his re
nominaion would be sure and his
Wall Street is no more in favor
of Harmon than it was in favor of
Parker. The only so-called Democrat
that Wall Street has ever favored
was Grover Cleveland when he was
elected the second time, and it fav
ored would be a mere tool in its hands
after him because it knew that he
was elected, and the sequel proved
that it was right. The truth of the
matter is .Wall Str-eet is badly scared.
It has seen the handwriting on the
wall, and it is trying to postpone the
day of reckoning as long as possible.
That is why it is trying to fool the
people into the belief that it is op
posed to Taft, when he is one of the
most subservient tools plutocracy has
ever had in the President's office.
He is even more so than Cleveland,
and that is saying a heap. It re
mains to be seen whether the Amer
ican people can again be fooled in
to electing a tool of the trusts Presi
dent by a Wall Street bluff.

The Orangeburg College.
An effort will be made by the Bap
tists to put the Orangeburg College
on a sound basis. A financial agent
has been employed, who will can
vass for funds to accomplish this
laudable purpose. There is a debt on
rhe college, which has hampered it
from the start. The plan now is
to raise a sufficient amount to can
cel this debt and if possible an ad
ditional sum for increasing the
equipment. Mr. Ga'nes, the new fi
nancial agent, will begin 10 canvass
for funds' at once. He asks, a con
tribution of at least one thousand
from the people of this city, and the
balaive that may be needed ho
hopes to raise from the people of
this and adjoining counties. The can
vas in this city will not be confined
to the Daptists but will include all
friends of the school, for while the
college is owned and controlled by
the Baptist denomination, its doors
; re open to all regradless of need.
'I he educational aad commercial
value of the college to this city is'
great and fully recognized. There-;
fore it is hoped there will be no
xiouble in raising the amount de-.
sired from this city. The cancelling]
cf the debt and with a better equip
ment, the college will be enabled
to do more and better work. Hamp
pered as it is, the college is doing
a good work now. The enrollment
this year is larger than ever and
the faculty is perhaps the strongest
the school has ever had. Let all
pull together for Greater Orange- J
burg College. '
The Close Season for Editors.
Wonder where Governor 'Blease
buries the editors he kills. While
at 'Spartanburg last week he was
asked why he vetoed the libel law
passed by the legislature at the
last session. His reply was that the
law was worthless because a news
paper was exonerated if,/after the
publication of a libel, it published a
retraction and apology.
However, the governor said,
newspaper libels had been of great
service to him and ho welcomed the
condemnation of the press, as it
made votes for him. "If I were not
n politics," said Governor^ Blease,
'and a newspaper lied about me. I
would whip the editor. And if 1 was
not man enough to do it I would get
double-barreled shotgun and kill
The governor further said that
Smith & Wesson made all men of
the same size, and that although he
had managed to keep out of fights
he was glad that he could use a gun
The editors should be thankful tha
Governor Blease is in office, as that
seems to a close season with him
regarding them. A committee should
be appointed at the next meeting of
the Press Association to try and find
and where the Governor buries the
editors he has killed.
