COTTON MILLS TO
CLOSE FIVE WEEKS
SOUTH CAROLIN XNUFACTUR
ERS DECIDE TO CURTAIL.
Shut Down is Not Caused by the High
Price of Raw Cotton, According
Spartanburg, Jan. 17.-Curtailment
for five weeks between April and Sep
tember, or earlier if the manageMent
of any mill sees fit, was decided on at
a meeting of the South Carolina
Manufacturers' association in this city
today. ' The curtailment is in coopera
tion with the mills of New England.
There were present 76 mill men, rep
resenting nearly every mill in the
State. This curtailment, as previous
ones, is due to the poor condition of
the market for the finished goods of
The high price of cotton has noth
ing to do with the closing down of the
"mills as the officials do not object to
pay 15 cents for the material if they
'can get fair prices for their products.

statement as given out by the presi

"A very largely attended meeting of
the cotton manufacturers of South
Carolina was held today in Spartan

lution in House.
Washington, Jan. 17.-Representa
tive Lever today introduced a joint res
olution, the purpose of which is to per
'mit an inspection of the original re
turns of the census enumerators as
~such returns relate to the population.
'This resolution," said Mr. Lever,
"comes as the result of numerous com
plaints from towns an~d cities as to
their population, as shown by the cen
sus report. This is particularly true
of Sumter, Greenville, Orangeburg and
other places in our State, and -is no
tably true of Augusta, Ga. Of course,
thie census figures can not be changed,
but the principle which permits the di
rector of the census to conceal from
The public the enramerator's return, a
~-matter of such wide public interest, is
wrong and calculated to be wrongfully
"These returns shiould be available
for public inspections and there is nc
reason which appeals to me for re
garding them as secret. The director
of the census goes to the extent of re
fusing to allow a member of congress
permission to see these returns, and
only such a resolution as I am intro
ducing, and hope to pass, will give the
ublic the light to wihich it is entitled.'

IE HO'NORED IN NEWMERRY

make a gentleman. The light that
never was on sea or land to the dream
ers and the poets of other days, is set
before us in the life of Lee, in growinI
radiance and lustre." Theodore Roose
velt says, "A civilization that has pro
duced a Lee need never despair. No
power could buy this man, or tempt
him from his integrity." Lee said, "My
name is everything that is left me, and
that is not for sale."
He is the flower of the chivalry of
the sixties, a chivalry that esteems a
stainless honor as a priceless gem, a
chivalry that has come down to South
ern youth to teach that life itself is
worthless where honor is at stake, that
the most exalted privilege of1a man is
the defence of woman, and of family,
and of native land.
Lee's magnificent personality made
for morals as well as martia, force.
Never such an army. Those half starv
ed and bare foot men who wore the
grey loved their chief with a passion
that never waned. After Gettysburg
the army was retreating through
Pennsylvania, and exhaustead by the
burdens which he bore, Gen. Lee lay
down beside the road to sleep. There
he was discovered sleeping in the cool
and grateful shade. But the army
that passed tiptoed light stepped, and
passed the word on back the line to
not disturb their tired chief. Where
is such solicitude in history-4ough
men tamed by love to whisperr, whilst
their great commander sleeps.
On the battlefield at Gettys'burg a
sorely wounded Union soldier lay
bleeding. As Lee rode past him the
s,cornful foeman, wounded though he
was, tauntingly called after Gen. Lee
and said: "Huraih for the Union."
The man survived to tell the incident.
He says Lee dismounted,'tenderly ap
proached the soldier who had taunted
him, and with a sad expression, said:
"My son, I hope you will soon be well."
The man said:- "If I live a thousand
years I will ndt forget the expression
on his face. There he was defeated,
retiring from a field that had cost h.im
and cost his cause the last rema.ining
hope, and yet he stopped to say these
words to a foeman wiho had taunted
him. When qie left I cried myself to
sleep upon the bloody ground."
ISurely 'this mwn was a

Only 'he did not fall until after he
had served the South as citizen and
educator, on October 12, 1870. To the
end no malediction escaped his lips
no rancorous and spiteful word left
his 'tongue. He lived, he fought, lhe
loved, 'be led, he 'suffered, he died-a
The South can nevier forget this
man! Never, 'as lon'g as there is a
spark of aidmiration left with which
to bail a gallant soul! Never as long
as impartial 'history records the dar
ing o~f the true and the virtues of the
brave! Nev'eir, as -long as you and the
Unted Daughters of the Confederacy
have one green leaf or summer's rose
with which to deck the graves of the
martyrs of a lost but nobie cause!
I can not refrain from quoting in
conclusion the eulogy of the late Ben
Hill upon the death of Lee. "He was
a foe without bate, a friend without
treachery, a soldier without cruelty, a
votor without oppression, a victim
without murmuring. He -was a public
[officer without vice, a private citizen
without wrong, a neighbor without re
proach. a Christian -without hypocrisy,
a man without guile! He was Caesar
witout his ambition, Frederick with
Iout his tyranny, Napoleon without his
selfihness, Washington without his
Ireward. He was as obedient to au
thority as a servant, as royal in au
thority as a king. He was gentle as a
woman i-n his life, as pure as a virgin
in his thought. He was as submissive
to law es Socra.tes, and as grand in
attle as Achilles."
Priceless is the herituge of Lee for
the Southern youth of every age! Let
the South rise up ini worthy emula.tion
of his spirit and,his deeds! Let the
young men and women of our times
Itake their place like heroes upon the
battle line of Duty, defending the hon
or and the glory and the prestige of a
reunited country, march forward as
one unbroken Southern phalanx to
fight the foes of freedom, in the spirit
of the immortal Lee. in the name of
