AIKEN'S VIEWS ON TA 1*1 FF.
Keceivinir .llanv I'rotests, i>ut Do Not
Fear Effects of Reductions.
A dispatch from Wasington says:
During the past week the South Carolina
members of congress have received
a number of telegrams from
cotton manufacturers in the South
protesting against the passage of the
Underwood tariff bill. Most of these
telegrams have been identical in wording,
although signed by different persons,
and this has led the members
of congress to believe that the telegrams
have been sent from a central
source, and that as a rule the individual
cotton mill men are not worrying
very much over the passage of
In discussing the receipt of these
telegrams Representative wyatt aiken
"President Wilson and this democratic
congress were elected on a
platform which promised that they
would revise the tariff downward.
That promise was repeated on every
stump in the country in the campaign
last summer and fall. The Under
wood bill was prepared dv tne ways
and means committee and submitted
to the democratic caucus by a vote
to the democratic caucus of the house,
and was approved by the caucus by a
vote so overwhelming as to be practically
unanimous, and the democratic
'member^ of the house are doubly
bound, by the platform and by the
caucus, to vote efor it. I am frank to
say that, even if I were not so bound,
I would still vote for it, for I believe
--* ' ? ? ~ -3 v.;n n-nA o i,iof nno fram

ed in the interest of the people, and
will give them relief. If there is a
temporary depression it will be because
of speculation, and not by reason
of the actual effects of the bill.
"As to the cotton schedule: The
tariff duties, on many lines of cotton
goods will be reduced, but the reduction
in this schedule will not be
greater than the reduction in other
schedules. The cotton manufacturers
of the South cannot in good faith, ask
that they be given special privileges,
and we could not give it to them if
tS^v should ask for it. But I am quits
sure the lowering of the duties on
cotton goods will not hurt the mills
to the extent that some of their pleaders
would have us believe. Many of
the mills in South Carolina now ship
their entire output to Asiatic countries,
and have been doing so for a
long time. Th y are underselling European
mills in order to do this, and
I fail to see how a reduction of the
duties on imports can affect them.
Only a few weeks ago a South Carolina
manufacturer evidently undersold
thcm, and yet he will have to
ship his goods half way round the
world. How is a reduction of the
tariff going to affect a condition of
"I saw a statement the other d^y
to the effect that the price of raw cottcn
had dropped five dollars a bale
because of the Underwood tariff bill.
Such a decline has not been warranted
by the actual facts. We have had
speculation in cotton under a high
tariff system; in fact, cotton was at
its lowest price during a reign 01 tne
high tariff. It may be that cotton
speculators will try to use the tariff
bill to unduly depress the price ,-of
cotton. I hope and believe none of
the South Carolina mill men will lend
themselves to such a scheme if it
should be started?if, indeed, it has
not already started. But if such a
movement is on foot_it must not be
laid at the door of the tariff bill, for
- - -?ii
the farmers of tne soum win sureiy
remember the violent fluctuations in
the price only a few years ago, under
the high tariff system.
"But this effort to depress the price
of cotton mav be made, and now is a
good time to make a suggestion, that
has been made often before, to the
farmers, and that is that the cotton
crop this year .should not be too large,
and that it should be produced at a
minimum cost. It is not too late for
most farmers to reduce their cotton
? ^ J 1 O
acreage to some -extent, cum tu piau
for more food crops. During the past
few years the farmers of the South
have profited vastly by organization
and better-methods of handling the
cotton crop, and it will be suicidal
for them to become careless now.
Of course, all this has been told the
farmers time and again, but it seems
to me that it is especially applicable
at this time. It looks as if a
bear campaign is being planned, and

control the price of cotton next fall,

their preparations now."?Walhalla

HOW GREENVILLE GROWS.
The Secret of the Success of Any Town
Is In the Pulling- Together Of
Greenville, S. C., May 16, lyis.
Dear Sir?This is an open letter to
every man, woman and child living
in Newberry who formerly lived in
It is a suggestion that you visit your
old home during the week of May
19-24, when there will be "some things
doing." What? The "Made in Greenville"
exposition, the Pure Food and
Health exposition, the Municipal Sanitary
congress, the Greenville horse
' * * ? ? ? ? Al% C+
' sHow, the Qome coming we^a., tut; oiatc
convention of Elks, the big farmers
rally, the trades day parade, band concerts
3aily and nightly, etc.
Visit Greenville and see how it has
The st-eep, muddy roads that you
used to use for streets are now well
graded and paved with fifteen/miles of
the finest paving you see anywhere-.
"Old Reedy" is spanned with a magnificent
$40,000 re-enforced concrete
bridge, with a "Great White Way
running its entire length, and with
a big four-story concrete warehouse
j where the old mill used to be.
! Go in any direction you chose, from
the center of the city, which by the
way, is not he same as it used to be,
and you will not know your eyes. Let
me ask you a few questions?
When you lived in Greenville, did
she have the 58 daily passenger trains
she has now? Did the C., & W. C.
have $175,000 invested in depots and
plants in Greenville? How many railroad
stations were there in thobe
"good old days" within sixty miles of
Greenville? Not the 135 that we have
now, were there?
Perhaps you lived here when we had
few more than 600 people. Now, the
Southern railroad alone has a force of
600 here and is paying them $100,000
a month in wages and salaries.
Honestly, now, did you ever think
Greenville's freight receipts would
amount to the $2,500,000 annually
that they reach now? Did you ever
dream that there would be sold in
Greenyille on an average every day
j in the year $1,500 in passenger railway
Can you imagine that within 75
j miles of Greenville is concentrated 75
per cent of South Carolina's main in
' dustry?cotton manufacturing? The
presidents of 41 mills live in Greenj
ville, while the purchasing departj
ments of 48 are located here. Last
| year in Greenville, one engineer
bought one million dollars worth of
electrical equipment alone. You remember
where you used to go, up
Reedy river, to hunt arrow heads?
?i-n tnHav in that same
wen, laeic oi-aixvjo ? .?
I neighborhod the largest cotton mill in
;the United States under one roof, and
right around it, in the territory where
I you hunted bird nests and shot field
! larks, are eleven giant mills with a
j capital of ten millions of dollars, em;
ploying 7,000 with an annual pay roll
| of more than two millions of dollars.

into a big city, and is still "going
About the only thing that hasn't
! changed is the altitude of the city
which remains at 1,054 feet. Well,
Paris mountain seems to be where it
I used to be; but it only "seems," for
j it is really much closer to Greenville
! than ever before because of the great
j amount of building and development
towards it and on it.
You know what is doing it all?
Thirty-five thousand live, energetic
hustling citizens all working together
to make Greenville the biggest city
!in South Carolina as it is already the
j best in which to live. H-ere is what
j one old Greenville boy has just written

MURDER, OR DEATH
White Man's Body Discovered In Sal
Has the discovery of the body of
a white man, in Salkehatchie river,
seven or eight miles from Hampton,
disclosed a murder mystery, or is it i
a case of accidental death while the \
victim was attempting to cross that
stream on a log?
Foul play, at the hands of some
party or parties whose identity is un- /
knovm, is the substance of the verdict
rotumpd hv n HamDton county cor
oner's jury today, aft-er viewing the |
remains supposed to be those of Paul j
Kirkland, of -Sycamore, Barnwell j
county, the identity being indicated I
by a letter found on the badly decomposed'
body, which, in the opinion
of Dr. C. A. Rush, of Hampton, had
been lifeless for at least six months.
Practically all of the flesh had been
j eaten off the bones by buzzards.
The body was found late yesterday
afternoon about a mile and a half east
cf the spot where the Hampton and
iBranchville Railroad crosses the Salj
: kehatchie river. It was lying across a
Jog in a shallow part of the stream,
; the head on one side of the log. the
; feet on the other.
The condition of the body was such
as to make identification by that
j means impossible, but lying in the
! river, directly under where the body
j was found, a pocketbook containing
'$6 and several letters was discovered.
! The contents of only one of these
j letters was addressed to " raui mikjland,
Sycamore, S. C.," and proved to
be a dun for balance due on a piano.
The only part of the date that could
be made out was thj year "1911."
Magistrate J. G. Murdaugh, of this
place, was notified of the finding of
the body and he arranged to have
the inquest held today.
While the general opinion held by
!tho cnpntntnrs at the inquest was that j
.the victim of this tragedy met his
I death by accident, while attempting
to cross on the log, tripping and falling,
at the same time his head striking
a snag, probably rendering him
unconscious^, the jury decided that
j the man must have been slain, and
! the formal verdict was to that ef
! No such person as Paul Kirkland
'was or is known in this vicinity, and
las Sycamore is about twenty miles
from here and has no telephone communication,
it has been impossible today
to find out whether or not the
remains are those of a former resident
of that town. The local authori!
ties, however, are at work on the case,
