AUGUSTA - EDGEFIED
Mr. Kenneth Jaker, Mayor of the
aity of Greenwood, was in Edgefield
on last Saturday. He was asked what
Greenwood would do to build a trolley
line from Augusta, via Edgefield to
Greenwood. He states that Edgefield
can rely on Greenwood to do her part
and that if we will go ahead and do
ours, we need feel no fears about that
* end of the line. He is very much in
terested in the line as are the people
of Greenwood. Like us, he believes
that the line can be built, and that
the time has come to act, Augusta
and Greenwood will back our dfforts
and that ought to make the road a
eertainly. After the matter is put in
-shape here, a committee will visit
> Greeirwood and Mr. Baker assures us
-&at it will be well received.
iThe above is from the Edgeffeld
News. It would seem that our co
temporary is determined to have this
road the Edgefleld-Greenwood road.
We are going to build the road to
Newberry and will be delighted to
have a braneh line to Greenwoo.
There is no reason why we should
not build to Greenwood and there
should be no objection on the part of
Edgefield to going to both places.

mathematics and civil engineering
department of Olemson college died

man of high character and esteemed

The Herald and News would be glad
to have some one white the story of
Immigration a Menace.
Immigration is one of the most im
portant political issues now before
the southern people. We say political
issues beause it is a question which
enters into politics and must be hand
led in a political way. But it is far
more than a political question-it af
- fects our industrial, social and moral
We have heretofore discussed this
question from an industrial stand
point and expressed our unqualified
disapproval of the methods now be
ing employed t~o rush immigrants into
the gouth. Our reasons were stated
at that time. But there are two oth
er phases of the matter which deserve
and demand the most careful consid
eration-the social and the moral.
The southern people are a homogen
eous people. The highest and purest
type of the Anglo-~Saxon race is found
in the south. Our blood is purer than
that of any other people in America.
This is due to the fact that our peo
ple have not inter-married to any]
great extent with other races and na
tions-we have maintained our iden
~tity as a distinctively southern peo
pie. In doing this we have selfguard
*ed many other vital matters and shut]
out many disturbing questions. Our
- social -interests and our future require
that this condition be maintained. We
.cannot do this if we flood, the south
with a horde of immigrants of every
race and nation. Ultimately they will
intermarry with our people and cor
rupt our blood and disintegrate our1
society.' This must be the final re
suits if present methods prevail and
it would prove disastrous to society
and injurious to the country.
The moral phase of this question
is equally important. The southern
people are committed to certain great
.moral principles and obedience to
them has proved a great blessing to
our people and state. We have been
able to maintain these principles be
cause we are a homogenemis people.
We have our differences on minor
questoins but upon these great lirinci
pies we stand agreed. Our people
think alike and act together. Our
political unity has protected our so
cial and moral interests.
Among these great moral questions
we mention our public school system,
temperance. divorce and the obser
vance of the Sabbath. On these mie
tions the immiv:rants who com'e a .
country do not agree with us * t
tics :111d Subvert our peace aid de
moralize our social and moral condi
-tions. We will have a repetition
here of the many disturbances which
are now almost daily occurring in
the noith to the great demoralization
of society and the injury o.* the coun
try. Such a state of things would be
the greatest calamity that could be
fall us as a people.
Are we prepared to open our courts
to divorce? Are wo willing to change
our free school system out of def
erence to their faith? Do we wish to
see our Sabbath desecrated ? Do we
want to turn back the great prohibi
tion wave which is sweeping over the
south? If not we must stop any ef
fort to bring and settle these people
We do not need immigrants. Our
country enjoys a remarkable degree
of prosperity. Our farmers are in
splendid condition; our manufactories
are prospering; our population is
ra#idly increasing by natural growth;
there is very little vacant or idle land
in the .state qnd in a few, years this
will be taken up by .L. 'neresse ot
our people. Why then introduce an
annecessary and disturbing element
among us? No real good cam come
from such a scheme and we hopd to
ee the effort effectually buried af
the next election by placing in offliee
men whose convictions ar2 p.-.itive
mnd who will legally block any ef fort
to fasten such a calamity upon our
people airl state.
In immigration we see. a positive
menace -i our politici unity, our
ocial purity and our m ril progress.
CABOLINA BANKERS MEET.
Recognize the Need for Greater Cir
he State, 7th.
About 30 members of the South
arolina Bankers' association, in
,uding Mr. W. D. Morgan of George
'own, the president, met in Colum
Jia yesterday. These gentlemen rep
resented the ''finances'' of practical
Ly every banking town in the state.
hey adopted a resolution that is a
3mpliment to the banking institu-'
ions of Columbia and Charleston. It
is more. If the request of the state's
bankers is complied with there will
be an immediate easement of string
sny and, the banks will be able to
give much more assistance to the cot
It was decided to ask the associa
bion of banks in the two cities named
to issue clearing house certificates to
bake the place, locally, o' the other
forms of cash that have been drawn
to the great centers and are being
aeld there. If this is done there will
,e experienced and practical effect of
aaving banks of issue, with elasticity
The following resolution was unani
ously adopted:. .
''Whereas, the financial disturb
inces in New York have resulted in a
carity of actual currency, so much
1eeded at this time to move the cot
:'on crop of the south, while our bank
ng institutions are in the best con
lition they have ever been; and,
''Whereas, this scareity of actual
mrrency is also depressing the prices
>f our products and causing them to
>e sacrificed; and,
''Whereas, some measures for sub
tituting a circulating medium in
lace of this currency is of extreme
mportance for the protection of the
alues of our products;
''Now,- therefore, we, the said meet
ng of 'bankers of South Carolina, do
''1. That tihe clearing house associ
tios of Charleston and Columbia be
equested to issue clearing house cer
;ificates for the general relief of
neh condition in this state as is
''2. And that all banks in the state
e requested to urge the use of such
~erificates in lieu of currency until
~onditions again become normal.''
If the banks of Columbia and
Tharleston issue certificates in res
onse to this riquest those certificates
vill be acceptable as money by banks
ill over South Carolina, and will be
herefore as good as gold for any use
n this state.
