per who is a member of the Association or for any member of his

THE SIDE TRIP.
I have made arrangemnents to take the side trip whieh has been
announced but in order to do so and have everything go off pleas
antly it is very important that you let me know at once whether
you will take this trip or not.
It is proposed to leave Greenville on Thursday night *at one
o'clock and go from there to At.lanta, spending Friday and Friday
nigh.t in Atlanta returning from Atlanta on Saturday and stopping
at Tallulah Falls over Saturday night and Sunday and Sunday
night returning to Greenville Monday afternoon in time to make
trains coming South.
I will not complete the arrangemen-ts, however, unless I am satis
fied that at least 25 members of the Association indicate a desire
to take this trip.
The cost of the trip will be about as follows: Railroad fare
Greenville to Tallulah Falls via Atlanta and back to Greenville,
$7.26; hotel. Atlanta, European plan $1.50; hotel at Tallulah Falls,
American plan, .$3.50.
You will see from this statement tha.t the total actual expense of
the trip will be in the neighborhood of $15.00.
Tallulah Falls is considered the Niagara of the South. The scen
ery is beautiful. "A very healthful and invigorating climate, the
land of health, pleasure, and rest, where blackberries, huckleber-ries
and fried chicken abound."'
If there were as many as 50 who desired to take the trip and I
could get the information at once I could secure a special train, but
I think the regular schedules will answer and the railroads will fur
nish a special coach. Of course, those who desire a Pullman from
Greenville to Atlanta will have to pay $2.00 extra.
I must know not later than the 15th of this month whether or not
the trip will be taken so that the railroads will have time in which
to make the necessary traffic arrangements.
Write to the President at Newherry, S. C., at once.

BRYAN TO RUN FOR SENATE.
Interesting Announcement Made in
Nebraska Concerning the Dem
Washington, June 1.-T,he an
nouncement just made in Nebraska
that William J. Bryan would be a
candidate for United States senator
next year. has vaused considerable in
terest to be shown in the subject here.
Mr. Bryan is either idolized or hated
politically among the national law
makers. Immediately after the elee
tion last fall, it was understood that
he would make the race, but later it
became understood also that he had
given up the idea.
The Nebraska Legislature adopted
the Oregon Sensational pri
mary. and election plan. last winter
at Mr. Bryan's request. Under this
each party will nominate itS own can
didate for the Senate, and at the elee
tion in November, 1910, the entire
electorate will vote for Senator. The
candidates for the Legislature will
have the option of- declaring their
willingness to support, in the As
sembly the popular choice, or their
purpose to irinore that choice and
vote as they please.
Mr. Bryan's opponent, as matters
now stand, is likely t be Senator
Elmer .Jacob Burkett, but the poli
tical situation in Nebraska is pe
-euliar. The liquor question over
shadows all others at present. Mr.
Bryan a few days ago came out with
the declaration that he expected to
take an active part in the campaign
in favor of suppression of the liquor
This will become a big issue in this
campaign. Sena.tor~ Burkett, like Bry
an. is a total abstainer, and has al
ways linedup with the anti-saloon ele
ment. It is therefore surmised. that
the liquor interests will make a fight
in the Republican primary, in an ef
fort to nominate as the Republican
candidate some other man than Bu E
ett more friendly to the saloon cause.
If they sueceedt in beating Burkett
withi a liquor maw der wil t he:n back
this Republicani x erously :n ti.e.gen
eral election, and in meh ai campfgn
a great dedal mi.)f.m' k9ly wo"ld
If Bryan comes to the Senate he
-will stand in mutch the same rela
tions to the Democrats in the upper
chamber that LaFollette occupied to
ward the Republicans when he came
here. His efforts will be to preach
the gospel to a new Democracy and
to force his views on his party follow
If they decline to accept his lead
ership they will be called upon to
answer to their ennstituents for that
refusal. and Bryan 's popular strength
it is declared might easily cause the
retirement of various Senators, who
have not been willing to accept his
leadership. The prospective appear
ance of Bryan in the Senate in short
makes a good many Democratic Sen
ators uneasy about their own status
but it is a long run to the wire, and
to defeat Burkett will be no small
