EDUCATORS IN PROSPERITY.
Large Crowd Listens to Appeals for
Schools.-Strong Pleas for
Prosperity, Aug. 12.-The educa
tional meeting for Newberry county
was held at Prosperity today where a
large barbecue was served in Young's
grove. The crowd was large. the day
perfect. aid t'e appeal for better
common schools most instructive and
The edicators present were: Super
intendent of Education J. E. Swear
ingen. Dr. Ge. B. Cromer. Prof. D.
W. Daniel and County Superintendent
-6f-Education J. S. Wheeler.
The meeting was presided over by
Mr. Wheeler. who introduced Prof.
D. W. Daniel of Clemson college as
the nrit speaker.
Prof. Daniel said he did not wish
to put education on a low plane, but
wanted to emphasize education from
the material standpoint, as an invest
merit for -e community. Why are
people leaving the country? Some on
account of lawlessness and non-pro
tection in the country, and some to
get better educational facilities. It
would be a far better investment for
such people to remain in the country
and take the cost of living in town
and spend it in building up better
country schools. Such would greatly
enhance land values.
At present education is becoming
necessary for any kind of work. The
reason the South is behind, despite all
of its wealth and resources, is because
-of lack of general education. A teach
er is employed at $25 or $30 a month
for three or four months, When she
happens to whip "little Johnny,"
who is one of the trustees' sons, after
-which occurrence she no longer
teaches in that community. Then an
other teacher is employed who is all
Tright until she whips "little Bessie,"
and then she has to leave and another
comes. This system is simply a "fly
ing-jenny" business that goes no
where. "Let us keep our teachers
A Good Investment.
It is further a good investment
from the standpoint of the young man
who nowadays finds it impossible to
come into possession of a fortune
without an education. Present condi
ditions are too advanced, too improv
ed, for ignorant men to get ahead. We
have the machinery, the facailties, tVhe
wealth, the resources, but unfortu
naately we have to send outside for
some one to show us.
State-Superintendent of Education
J. E. Swearingen was next introduced.
He stressed the local needs in educa
tion, local uplift and development.
One 's locality is not to be determined
by what is done by the lawmakers in
Columbia, by the passage of railroad
rate laws. pure food laws, etc., but
''it is determnied by you."
The degree of progress of a com
munity can always be determined by
the condition of its schoolhouse, by
its tea&ber. There are 100,000 coun
.try boys suffering from inadequate
training. Superior local equipment is
Deeded. The amount expended for
education in South Carolina repre
sents about $1.25 for each bale of
cotton raised. Curricula are too much
shaped with a view towards culture.
In a great agricultural country they
-should not be so much so. Education
*should bear a direct relation to life.
One man in teaching a better way of
-raising corn has done more than any
of the college professors. He empha
sized the fact that seihool laws should!
be revised. This .revision should not
be done by politicians but by educa
tors and business men. "An ade
quate school law is absolutely need
Dr. Cromer Speaks.
After an intermission of two hours
Yor dinner Dr. Geo. B. Cromer was
introduced. He said he would talk at
length. Henry Ward Beecher had
said anybody could talk a long time,
few could give a short talk. His
speech would be similar to the min
ister 's which was likened to a little
railroad up in the mountains which
possessed no terminal facilities.
During the morning he had been*
-wondering two things: One, "How
:many school trustees are there here;"
-and~the other, "How many red-bugs
are on that.old log out there?"
One of the most striking things
~that presented itself to his mind was
the large number of educated, college
trained young men at the meeting. He
remembered that 30 years ago there
was quite a difference. This meant a
great many things, and one of them
was it greatly increased the responsi
bility and the work of those who
spoke. There is no short cut to edu-1
cation. Pumpkins can develop in six
month's, but an oak tree requires 100
Thomas Jefferson advocated com
2non schools, hbigh schools and colleges,
and that every one of the latter
should teach agriculture.
Dr. Cromer very emphatically put
himself on the side of compulsory
eduatin. The State owes to its
lical ivn. ~ ;11 is, azt
Llraueni~i. A tax fur education is a
principle, not a policy. As for the ne
gro-no white man should quit giving
his boy a square meal just because the
negro might get a few crumbs that
fell from the table. A year ago a
petition was sent down to Columbia
for compulsory education signed by
ien who had to make their mark.
The people are progressing. When
lie was a boy thumb-papers were used
to prevent wearing the book. Now
children begin to read before spelling.
When his first teacher many years
,a-) taught his pupils to say "may I"
instead of "ean 1" the community
was about to drum him out of the
country because-what do you sup
pose ?-h1e was persuming ''to teach
gZnnmar without a )ook." Trustees
shiould not interfere with the school
teacher. Such interference prevents
a teacher from teaching well.
He would like to have placed in the
office of every county superintendent
Of education a picture of every
school in the county, with the names
of the trustees and the salary of its
$eacher. Let it hang for the public
The average pay of the teacher in
,&uth Carolina is $200 a year. Some,
he supposed, were .in the condition
of the chap who when asked what he
was going to do during vacation, re
plied, "Guess I'll get some remuner
ative employment so I can teach this
winter." Is it right thus, by poor sal
aries, to put a premium on celibacy ?
Men perfectly sane in all other mat
ters at once begin to growl when taxes
for better schools are mentioned. The
common school is the great common
university of the world. "A school
tor every child and every child in the
school," should be t-he State's motto.
Dr. Crorner's speech was short in
quantity, but it was long and refresh
ingly instructive in quality.
At the close of the meeting County
Superintendent of Education Wheeler
remarked that it was reported to him
that there were 22 school trustees

Attorney General Lyon does not
wish to be placed in the attitude of
t andin olit against tile 1):.n ing int.>
the State of new enterprises, such as
the C., C. & 0. Railroad, but there
was some discussion as to the con
stitutionality of the Act during the
session of the Legislature. Mr. Lyon
feels that the Act should be .tested
and, although he has made no formal
statement to this effect, except to ad
vise Mr. McCown against issuing the
charter, thinks the Act is unconsti
tutional. He will look further into
The petition for a charter for the
C., C. & 0. involves over a $3,000
charter fee, the petition naming a
stock of $30,000,000. Judging from
the advices given by Mr. McCown to
day he will very probably refuse to
grant the charter pending the settle
ment of the case in the courts. The
att,orneys for the )road will bring
mandamus proceedings in this event.
The matter in the meanwhile is in
The main thing in the domestica
tion Act that lays the Act liable to
attack is that it does not contain the
provision of the Act of 1902 relative
to the opening of the books of sub
scription in this State. The Act of
1902 was for the providing of a more
"practical method for the incorpora
tion of such companies and their
stockholders, owners or projectors. "
