E. H. AULL, EDITOR.
Friday, June 9. 1911.
We notice from the daily papers
that in the State of Georgia the va
rious local organizations known a
the chambers of commerce and board,
of trade have formed a State organiza
tion. It seems to us that such an or
ganization would be a valuable asse1
for South Carolina. VVe unaerstanc
that efforts have been made to organ
ize the secretaries of these commer
cial bodies, but if the bodies them
selves would form a State organiza
tion comprising representatives base
upon a certain propcrtion of thE
membership, a great work could bf
done for the entire State, and eacl
community would be bettered by th<
THE HOSPITAL MOVEMENT.
It is greatly to be hoped that th(
effort which has been begun by thE
physicians to establish a hospital ir
Newberry will meet with success.
There is no reason why Newlrry
should not have a first-class hospital.
There is every reason why it should.
We understand that those in charge
of the matter are meeting with en
couragement. This is as it should be.
Laurens and other nearby towns
those that have not hospitals already
- -have movements well under way for
them, which will be successful.
The hospital movement is oRe
which should appeal to every citizen
of Newberry, in every walk of life. It
would be a great thing for the town,
it would be a boon to sufferers, and
from every viewpoint it would be a
n:ost desirable investment.
We sincerely wish success to the
efforts wgich are being made to -build
, COL. JOHN F. HOBBS.
It is always pleasant for the folks
at home to hear from their friends
in other parts, particularly when the
news from those friends is good. Col.
John F. Hobbs is a native of Lexing
ton county, but a graduate of New
berry college. and a frequent visitor
to Newberry, especially on commence
ment occasions. He will be renmem
bered pleasantly by many of our cit
izens and we have no doubt that these
citizens will be pleased to have good
'news from Col. Hobbs. It was our
pleasure while in New York a few
*> days ago to call at the office of Col.
Hobbs and also to take what he terms
a "Dutch lunch" at his home with his
family. Cul. Hobbs is a member of
the class of '79 in Newberry college,
and graduated along with, Prof. C. WV.
Welch and~the Daniel boys. He is at
present the editor and largely the own
er of The Caterer, a monthly maga
zine published in the interest of the
* hotels and resturants of the courftry.
In company with MIr. James MI.
Payne. of Anderson. the editor called
on Col. Hobbs and had lunch at the
Kaiserhoff. and during the evenin'g we
visited a number of leading restaur
ants of the city. Through the kind
ness and courtesy or our triena, Col.
Hobbs, the evening was pleasantly
and profitaly spent. and it is a pleas
ure for us to state that our friend and
former college-mn:e goems to be pros
pering in his adopted home. He is a
member and one of the leading spri
in the Thirteen club, and that great
organization had just rearrned from
an outing to Baltimore which was un
der the personal direction arid man
agement of Col. Hobbs.
THE. CLEMSON DECISION.
We confess that we have not read
carefully the decision of the supreme
court of the Uited States as to Clem
son college. It seems that thoso who
have read it care-fuliy anid are compet
ent to judge are of the: opinion that it
merely decides that a corporation.
wli-.her a collegc or riot, may br. suAd
for damages or :Pinja.:. The >t8
nravsmaper say> xh . e opiniron cot
trusie.s wiih a self-perpetuating ma
jority, deriviing office and authorit)
from the will of Thomas G. Clemson
gives it the nature of a private rathei
than a State institution. The conten
tion of the plaintiff that the Stat(
holds the Clemson estate as a truste(
for the purpose of conducting an ag
ricultural and mechanical school iE
left untouched. . . . 'rne supremf
court in the Hopkins case merely de.
cides that a public corporation creat
ed by the State., whether a city, 1
county or a college. receives no im
munity from suit at law praying dam
ages for tort or injuries and that sue
corporations are themselves answer
able when they take from a citizer
property without process u iaw." r
is held that the UniversiTY or Win
throp might be sued for a similar tor
under the doctrine of this decision.
So it would seem from this decisloi
that the doctrine "that those who havi
been so blatant in proclaiming tha
the trustees were holding two of
fices" will not have to "change theii
tactics," but that question is still un
It seems to us that the attorne3
general's office should bring the sui
which the legislature directed it tc
bring so as to determine this ques
tion directly by our own supreme
!court. If the constitution does nol
mean what it says, then the soonei
the supreme court tells us so the bet
ter for all concerned.
On the contrary if the constitutior
does mean what it says. then thosE
who are charged with the making ol
the laws of the Commonwealth should
be made to obey the constitution.
There is no reason in the world why
Greenwood should have mosquitoes,
but it is a fact that in 1he last Iew
years she has had an abundant crop
during the months of July, August and
September. The thing to0 do is to
start now and keep these pests ana
breeders of disease from coming. The
board of health has very wise.ly set
apart the week for cleaning up the
town. aid called upon the citizens to
cooperate. We hope that they will re
spond most cheerfully and that in a
few days Greenwood will be as clean
as a penny.
But wvas anything said about wag
ing war against the coming of the
mosquito It was an oversight. Lets
begin -now and keep this up. Every
place vi'here there is stagnant water
should be drained and kerosene oil
poured over the water. Look out for
the old tin cans or other receptacles
that hold water and Iittt them out ol
The thing to do is not to wait for
these pests to come. for once they are
here. they will remain with us, but
keep them from coming. Do it now.
Do not wait for tomorrow. The comn
fore of your neighnors, the reputation
of Greenwood demands that we should
keep out he mosquito.

IF REQUISITION IS REFUSED
FELDER WILL BE "NABED"
Newberry, June 6.-It is rumored in
Newberry that Thomas B. Felder, the
Atlanta lawyer, 7orimer attorney of
the old dispensary winding-up com
mission, for whom a warrant has be ,n!
issued charging him wvith coilnpiry
to def::a ud the State of South Caro
lina, an:i attempting to bribe Ifnb Ev-1
ans. has retained a Newberry aftt ier 1
to look after his interests. While
there has been no definite announce
ment to that effect, nor a verification
of the rumor, it is known that the
Newberry lawyer in q.uestion was in'
Atlanta at the time that Sheriff M. M
Buford. of this county, appeared be
fore Governor Brown with requisi
tion papers for Felder.
Even should the requisition for Fel
der be refused, by Governor Brown.
.it is safe to predict that the Newberry'
sheriff will sooner or later nab the
*Atlanta lawyer. I.t is Sheriff Buford's 1
boast that he "always gets 'em when
he once star,ts after 'em"-and his;
reord bears hinm out in this assertion.

These are the net results of an
earthquake which visited the capital
this morning and, injected a note of
tragedy into what was expected to'
be a day of pure rejoicing. When the
work of searching the ruins is comn
pleted it is possible -that the list of
the dead will be somtewhat higher
and there are doubtless many wound
ed. who, with traditional fear of the
authorities and government hospitals
are anxious to evade discovery. The
property loss is but an estimate and
is base"d upon estimate's made by own
ers and contractors. Little of the loss
~s covered by insurance.

o b!. mado befort that date.
Can a South Carolina farmer make
i bale of cotton per acre by August
I? I feel sure that it can very easily
)e (lone. In 1908 the writer planted
)ne acre on cotton April 28 and by
July 28, 90 days later. had fixed be
vond the bloom enough bolls to pro
:luce five hundred and seventy pounds
)f lint cotton. The cotton was picked
September 8, six weeks after the 28th
)f July. It requires from six to seven
wseeks from the bloom to the open
boll. The making of this early crop
was accomplished -as follows: The
land was in cowpeas in 1907. In Jan
nary 1908 it was plowed with a re
versibl- ,isc plow t> a eight
inches. Fifteen tons of manure was
spread broadcast over the land and
the disc harrow run over it. Apr11 1
it was laid off in four foot rows and
listed with a one horse plow. Later
the middles were run out and just be
fore planting a section harrow run
,ver the land. The soil was in fine
ondition when the planting was done
and a stand was secured in a few
iays. The side harrow was used at
>nce and subsequent shallow cultiva
ions followed rapidly. No commercial
'rtilizers were used. Nothing unusu
)1 or difficult is needed in making
such a crop. It consists wholly in the
irt of getting -a supply of decaying
matter in the soil; in preparing a
perfect seed Ned,. finely pulverized,
rirm. and well supplied with avail
ible plant food; planting good seed
)f a well bred. early or medium'\early
rariety; planting the latter part -of
April; not more than one-half bushel
Yf seed to the acre and cultivating
rapidly to get an early and quick
,rowth. One thousand pounds or
nore of a good fertilizer can be sub
;tituted for the manure in South
:arolina. It is easy and a bale to
he acre can be made before August
I almost any year.
