expounder, John C. Calhoun, would
have exactly found a way by which
Athey could pry out of the national
treasury the money with which to do
that in South Carolina. But as we
go .along, as the necessities change,
as the issues change, somehow or
other our views of the constitution
)Take on a little different color.
"I have been all around the United
States, zigzagging about, so that I
have covered about 12,000 miles, and
everywhere the question is, 'How
can the land be made to bear more
than it is bearing?' I doubt if ever
in the history of the country that
question was being agitated with the
same degree of intensity and the
same determination to make the land
bear more than it ever did before
than it is to-day, and the reason is
that the population is growing in the
world and the demand for farm
products is growing faster than the
supply of those products, and hence
it is that it is the farmers that are
getting rich and we poor lawyers and
professional men have to extend our
practice upon the farmers in order
to share in it. And it is a healthy
"The accumulation, the concentra
fion of millions of people in cities is
not healthy, and the improvements in
country life, the suburban, electrie
railway, the telephone, the rural de
livery .and the means of reducing the
had work, of the farmer's wife by
inventions and the cooperative ar
rangements are reaching such a point
that it becomes I hope, or soon will
become, more comfortable to live in
the couitry than to live in the city.
"The rewards of agricultural suc
eess are becoming so much greater
for the young men who exert inge
nuity, intellect, professional knowl
edge and energy upon their work thalt
they will be retained in the country.
Otherwise, I should feel that the
movement was one of degeneracy and
not of progress. Every town, of
tourse, wants to increase in popula
tion, but with bhe cities becming
great and the tenement houses nu
merous and the hygiene bad and the
concentration of the vicious make
"It <does not make for the good of
'the State, and what -we must do is by
sneh means as possible, such laws as
will encourage it, such enterprises as
will bring it about, to enlarge instead
of reducing our farming work com
munity, and when that is done, when
the public questions to be solved are
determined largely .by those who till
the soil, we may kno.w that the con
sideration.given will bet that of men
engaged in an occupation that does
not~ rack their nerves, tha't does not
make them gamblers and livers of
rapid lives, but commits the fate of
the country to men who give .consid
erate judgment to the questions sub
mnitted to them, and 'have a deep
seated loyalty and a 'deep-seated con
serv!atism ~that will preserve to us
the institutions that our - fathers
~handed down to us inviolate.
"And now, my friends, I am go
ing to make some more speeches, and
I must limit: myself at each so as to
*reserve strength~ enough for all. You
have a fair l4ere, and I suppose you
have a track.. I may use the meta
phor, or the simile, of the track to
say that I am on the home stretch,
a-nd I want, to get into the goal with
out any evidence of having broken
down. Therefore, I as~k you to ex
cuse me from further remarks, but
only to speak my cordial and heart
felt thanks for your hospitable re
.eept;ion in the capital of this 'great
State of South Carolina.''

In World-The North Dakota With,
Turbine Engines Breaks Speed
Record For Her Class.
New York World.
Rockland, Me., Nov. 4.-The North
Dakota is the fastest battleship of
the Dreadnought type afloat, as well
as one of the two most powerful bat
tleships in the world. Her screws
standardization tests over the Rock
land measured mile course today de
veloped a maximum speed of 22.25
knots and an average of 21.833.
In attaining this surprising speed,
the turbine engines of the North Da
kota were forced to the development
of more horse-power than has been
reached by any other battleship
afloat. A maximum of 35,150 horse
power was recorded, while 33,875
horse-power was the mean amount.
'The maximum number of revolu
tions of her nickel composition pro
pellers was 286 a minute. It was
found that 263 revolutions in this
time were suffiient to maintain the
contract speed of 21 knots.
The North Dakota, by her perfor
mance today, takes precedence as a
general first-class battleship over any
other afloat. Her sister ship, the
Delaware, which was given her trials
over the same course on Oet. 23. was
in uncertain possession of this honor
after her trial performance, but the
figures recorded for the North Dako
ta are decisive. There is but one
Dreadnought afloat who attainments
may exceed hers. This is the Nep
tune, just launched for the British
navy. The Neptune, however, will
hav,e to attain to figures much in ex
cess of specifications to accomplish
this. The Bellerophon has made by
22.1 knots, as compared with the
North Dakota's 22.25.
The tide was in the North Dako
ta's favor and this is -rgot substracted
from the best figure. In the recorded
mean, or average, however; tidal cor-.
rections are made. In the five trials
over the mile course the records were
22.25, 21.486, 22.13, 21.505 and 21.133
While the .speed runs were being
recorded the North Dakota was also
undergoing a two hours' test for con
sumption of oil and coal. The Del
aware and the North Dakota are the
first battleships built for the United
States navy to u'se the oil spraying
method. The showing is understood
to have been very satisfactory.
The Fore River Shipbuilding com
pany, at Quimcy, Mass., built the
North Dakota, which is the first
America battleship of the first clss
to have turbine engines installed.

rowly escaped death when t.he tug
Nezinseott was sunk off Cape Ann
several months ago was in charge to

Beginning at 7 o'clock tomorrow
morning the North Dakota is to be
put through the second test, a four
'hours' run at 21 knots. The run
will end off Boston Light, where she
will anchor and prepare for her
t.wenty-four hours' run at twelve
knots. Following this she will go pin
der another twenty-four hours' test'
at nineteen knots.
Within six months, it is expected,
the North Dakota and the Delaware
will take their places in the van of
the American navy's line of sea fight
ers and will then rank as the great

than that of running on errands in

Commander Peary is to get twenty

ex-President Roosevelt is getting for
his hunting story, and as a rule words
do not grow as long in the Arctic as
they do below the Equator.
Mr. Roosevelt 's price is $1, so
Commander Peary is to get $1.20 a
