GAMBI.R AND GROWER-WHICH
Speaking about brazen robbery:
Spot cotton declined 30 points, or
$1.66 a bale, in New York on Mon
iy-or about twenty-one and a half
million dollars on a crop of 13,000,
What was the reason given?
"Because the equinoctial storm
.did not do much damage!" That
comes pretty near being the limit of
According to the logic of this ex
euse, for the two weeks preceding the
autumnal equinox, the price of cot
ton should have advanced, in antici
pation of the dreaded storm. But in
stead of advancing, the speoulators
steadily and consistently depressed
cotton during that period. They fore
ed down the market price about $6.50
The day before the equinox, when
storm signals were displayed along
the gulf coast, what happened in New
York? By every rule of argument
and consistency cotton should have
advanced; but it went down five
points. And on Monday, when .the
storm passed without damag, the
depression was 30 points more.
That is a fair sample of the meth
od of dealings in New York. There
was as much need for raw cotton on
Monday as on Saturday. All that
there is will not be sufficient to meet
the world's demands. The mills
throughout the world are running on
full time; there is an assured market
for every yard of cloth that is woven.
Yet, because much cotton was not
destroyed, the speculators use that as
a pretext to hammer the price still
That method is little better than
highway robbery; the only difference
is that the farmers have not got to
stand and deliver. If all of them Will
K have the nerve to quietly sit and wait
baek shout $8 a bale.
But to accomplish that great result
the grovwers must stand together,
from one end of the eetton belt to
the other. And merchants and
bankers, and business men generally,
should dissuade the small farmer
-from turning loose his little crop;
and, if possible, help him to hold it
for a short while. Every bale market
ed now weakens the so'uth. This is the
crucial test; the next few weeks will
determine ;w'hether the gambler or
the grower shall win.-The State.
The a.boye is the line taken by The
Herald and News some ten days a,o
and we t'ake pleasure in copying it
in this connection and in endorsing
the position of the State.
As we stat1ed in a former issue of
.The Herald and News, we are glad
to see the papers like the Columbia
State and the Atlanta Journal taking
the position which is taken in thel
above in regard to the fight which
is now on between the cotton grower
and the money center. As we see it,
there is absolutely no reason for the
decline in the price of cotton ex
ecept that it is an effort of the gamblers
in the great staple product of the
southern farmer to whip him in 'The
fight, which he has been making'
through the two organizations of the
farmers for a living price for his~
We would be glad to see not a bale
of cotton put on the market~ for twen
ty days, and we believe that the State
is correct when it says that if this -
were done, "cotton would climb
back $8 a bale.'' In order to accom
plish this. however, it is absolutely
necessary that .'The farmers should
st-and togethe. They have the key
to the situation, but it requires united
effort. We are very anxious that.they
.should win in this fight.
The state colleges are full. That is.
wrell, but thiere is nothing remark
able about it. If there were free gro
eery stores or free dry goods stores
open they would be full also. The
state .uannot possibly accommodate
everybody who wants a good thing.
Yet many people seem to think that
there is something remarkable about
it, are troubled about so many being
turned away and demand that ac
commodation be. made for all which
would mean drawing away the pat
ronage of other colleges. It is a
* great mistake to suppose that the
applicants who are turned away are
denied an education. They simply go!
K to other colleges, where they get as!
satisfaction of knowing that nobody
was taxed to pay for it.-Chester
The tuition amounts to a very small
matter in any of our colleges. In
view of the very small number of
those who attend our state schools
being able to pay the tuition we have
about come to the conclusion that it
would be best to abolish tuition char
ges and at the same time abolish
all scholarships. Say to the young
man who desired to attend the state
school, here it is, we furnish you the
school and the tuition but you must
do the rest.
These free scholarships and this
farce at charging tuition, both, are
resulting in too many parents certi
fying to what is not true in order to
save a few dollars. And what about
the influence on the boy who knows
that his parent has saved the small
amount of tuition by false statement.
The same is true to large extent at
The free tuition in the state col
leges has no effect on the denomina
tional schools. We once thought it
did but when Winthrop and Clemson
were established the demoninational
and private colleges had more pupils
than before. There is an awakening
for higher education but it should not
be given free.

The above is respectfully and gent
ly referred to Mrs. DeCamp.
In the death of Mx. D. A. Smith, of
the Keowee Courier, the press of this
state has lost one of its oldest and
most highly honored members. In
his early life he was a printer on the
Press and. Banner, along with Mr.
Hugh Wilson, the veteran editor of
According to the Press and Banner
Mr. Wilson is now the only printer,
who is living, who was connected
with the Press and Banner at the
time Mr. Smith was.
Mr. Smith, in addition to his con
nection with the newspaper business,
had been honored by the people of
his county in the election of probate
judge, and held thiat position at the
time of his death.
The Herald and News is very much
gratified that the movement lookirig
to the establishment of a hospital in
Newberry is meeting with such
hiearty' response from the people. It
ought to be a very easy matter for
the committee with the assistance
and co-operation of the twenty-nine
physicians in this county to raise the
necessary amount for the erection of
the hospital. According to the notice
of the committee published in another
part of this paper a subscription F
has been furnished to each physician,
and if he. will take the interest in it,
which he ought, it will take but; very
little stock from each one to raise the
This is a very important movement
and the people of Newberry county
annot afford to let it fail, and the
time to do the work is now.
SOUTHERN IS NOT RETALIATING
Washington, September 24.--Presi
ent Finley, of the Southern Railway,
today issued a statement as to the
reasons for the recent stoppage of
onstruction work and reductions in
hop forces, in which he said:
"In some quarters it has been rep
esented that work has been stopped
nd forces reduced as a measure of
etaliation against adverse state leg
slation. In no case has this been
rue\ This company has not beena
governed, in any case, by any but

s must govern a railway as well as
very business enterprise. Current
railway income is insufficient to pro

d for now, as in .t'he past, by ob

onditions and the present attitude
f investors toward railroad securi
ies are such that it is~ imposible for
he moment to sell railroad securi

mportant projects for improvement.

The Several Establishments Vie With
One Another in Generous Rival
ry-Many Pretty Crfations.
The usual opening, which is held
semi-annually by the several millinery
establishments in Newberry, took
place yesterday. Everything seemed
to conspire to make it one of the
most delightful openings in the his.
tory of these opening days in New
berry. During the night of Wednes
day the weather turned cooler and
yesterday morning a good, fresh
northeast wind was blowing, and
everything had the appearane4 of
fall, which, of course, made the. la
dies more interested in lo.oking at the
different styles and patterns of fall
and winte hats than they would
have been if the hot weather of the
past several days had continued. The
several establishments in Newberry
all vied with one another in making
the most elaborate and beautiful dis
play. This reporter of course would
not undertake to make comparisons.
They are always odious and would be
especially so if he undertook to com
pare the display of one establishment'
with that of another. Suffice it to
say that they all were uu to date and
the several ladies in charge were
busy showing their latest creations in
millinery apparel and the seeker and
purchaser of a fall hat may easily
be satisfied at any one of these estab
