We thought a little strange when
saw the armour ^ent that Mr.

resign as good a berth as the post-,
mastership of Greenville to run what I
seems from this distance to >be a losing
race. Now we see in the Spartanburg
paper that while in St. Louis
^as a delegate to the Democratic national
convention he received a tele"Sram
from the postoffice department

Well, we do not think they should

iio reason why they should not express

sior why goftig as a delegate to the
national convention should mteriere

The postal laws no need amend"

should not be permitted to

department, as it now is.
If we thought Mr. Traxler would be
able to shake up the department in

the present congressmen seem anxious

But -from this distance from the
scene af action it would seem that
Mr. Nichalls will succeed himself. He
"has been active and has gone to work
and we scarcely believe that the people
will make a change so soon.
From all we can gather Mr.

We had a concrete example of what
we mean by injecting a little common

Pickens was oniy n cents nunc
charge for 30 ounces of Sunday
school programs on a rural route out
from Newberry was 15 cents. If there
is any reason for such rates we
would like to hear it.
The above was written for the pa- j
per for the issue of last Friday, but,
was crowded out. Its purpose is to
call attention to the foolish postal
regulations. Of course, the local ofl
ficers are in no wise responsible for i
the regulations and all they have to >
do is to follow them. The follow- j
ing appears in the Laurens Advertiser
of this week and further illustrates
the s?nseless regulations as
we see them. There may oe a reason i
for these regulations but if so we!
have been unable to see them.
"Uncle Sam's postal rates are curi- j
ous things. The other day a package |
was sent to the postoffice weighing '
three pounds and fifteen ounces and j
the clerk quoted a rata of thirty-one
cents on it, saying at the time that
if the package weighed four pounds it
would go for nine cents. Thereupon
The Advertiser man picked up a string
from the floor and asked that it be
weighed and was told that it weighed
two ounces. He then tied the string
around the package and had it all
sent for nine cents. The two ounces
of string, then, reduced the expense
of shipment twenty-two cents, making
the value of the string eleven
cents per ounce. That's rather high
for strings, even in this time of high
prices,Nhut, as already said, Uncle
Sam's postal rates are curious

Wilson made it piain in his speech at
lilC .\evv 1 otk riess ciuu uauviu^i,
| he would not countenance a war with
t Mexico until there is no other alter-1
native for settling the border trou- j
He declared again that he was
ready to sacrifice his own political
fortunes in order to carry out his
convictions as to what would be the
just course to pursue in the situation.
The president's audience, composed
of newspaper men, State and municipal
political leaders and others
prominent in public life, signified indorsement
of his position by repeated
outbursts of applause. When he
asked if the glory of America would
be enhanced by a war of conquest in
Me..:co, shouts of "no" came from all
parts of the banquet hall. A similar
response was made to his query
whether it is America's duty to "carry
self-defense to the point of dictation
into the affairs of another people."
The president dwelt also on his efforts
to serve the whole people, thou-'
sands of whom, he said, are appealing
to him to maintain peace as long ai*.

shall stick by the ship until it is recognized
by passengers, crew and officers
alike that it must be abandoned.
I will say this, however, speaking
for the rank and file, that the
friends of Woodrow Wilson in the I
party are legion. The stalking horse
of the national committee may vote
down the resolution to leave the vote
of Progressives to their own consciences,
but I think the actions of
Progressives are to ue ucici
and dictated by their individual judgment
and nothing else."
President Wilson arose from his
seat and shook hands with Mr. Colby
as he finished speaking. Later the
president paid tribute to Mr. Colby's
Mayor John P. Mitchel. Ralph
Pulitzer and Irvin S. Cobb also spoke.
President Wilson did not begin to
speak until almost 11 o'clock.
The presidential party, which included
Mrs. Wilson, who occupied a
seat of honor in a balcony behind
huge American flags; Dr. Cary T.
Grayson and Secretary Tumulty, left
for Washington at 12:30 o'clock.

President 'Wilson said:
So Time to Prepare.
"I realize that I have done a very
imprudent thing; I have come to address
this thoughtful company of men
without any preparation whatever. If
I could have written as witty a
speech as Mr. Pulitzer, I would have
written it. If I could have written
as clear an enunciation of the fundamental
ideas of American patriotism
as the mayor I should have attempted
it. If I could have been as
appealing a person and of as feeling
a heart as Mr. Cobb I would have
felt safe. If I could have been as
generous and interesting and as genuine
as Mr. Colby, I should have felt
that I could let myself go without
any preparation but, gentlemen, as
a matter of fact, I have been absorbed

to say myself. He said that there
are some things which it is really
