recent storm on the Gulf coast.
A striking Appeal.
In his first letter to the great secret
order over which lie presides in this
State Grand Chancellor M. Rutlede
Rivers of the Kiights of Pythias,
makes a stiirring appeal to the patri
otisim of ten Ilhusand sterling men
who compose its Imlbership in a call
to them to stand for the law and the
constituted authority of the State. It
is a powerful plea and a most strik
ing and welcome manifestation of
awakening thought and a sense of the
obligation upon us to take stock of
our civilization and undertake a re
establishment of the shaken founda
.ions of the law.
Grand Chancellor Rivers points out
that the membership of the Pythian
order comprises one-tenth the number
of South Carolinians qualified to par
Neipate in tile affairs of State and
truly says that ''ten thousand earnest
advocates of the maintenance of order
and of upholding constituted author
ity will make an impress that surely
will bring untold benefits to our state,
honior p)on o ur order and credit to.
ourselves.'' Inudec(l the power of such
an organization to aecolplish upon
which it is united is inestimable. If
One man in every ten of voting age in
South Carolina were prepared always
and in all circumstanees to stanld for
the law and to support the constitu
ted authority, against all clamor and
rage of tile mob, there would soo,
he an end to lynching.
To the enld that the members of
the order should be impressed with
their obligations to the State an<t
their duties as citizens to maintain
order and su1pp)ort the law, the head
of the Pythians ill South Carolina
instructs thait at least once in every
month, each lodge of Pythians under
his jurisdiction shall be called to its
feet and thme members shall repeat
to tile order, a declaration of their be
.licef inl the maintenance of order and
the uphiolding~ of constituted author
ity in the government. This is a
practical and striking method of
bringing to tihe realization of a very
large propertion of tihe citizenshuip' of
h . South Carolina tIhe duty which rests
upon01 all of them to stand steadfastly
against all forms of violence and
rage, and it can not but be impres
sively beneficent inl its fe
