The Washington P'ostsays the atti
ude of the president regarding the "
;outhern lRepublicans is not surpris
ng in Washington. where his views t
ire well known. r. fact. the revivi
:at ion of the Republican party in the C
;outh recently has been largely due to a
President Roosevelt, who has paid
personal attention t+ that section.
It is now recalled that some time sc
before the tragic death of President Li
McKinl y it had been arranged for Mr. T
Roosevelt to make a tour through the e
souti:h t: acquaint himself with Re- f
publican conditions there. le was n
carnestly advised to make the tour tt
by hooker T. Washington, who is an -t
ardent advocate of a complete reor
anizat ion of the lrepublican party in ft
tie so;bti. As ho slated in his talk ft
with Chairman Lyon, of the Texas t
Republican State committee, Presi- I t
dent 11: sevelt is desirous of avoid- Y
in fae ijnal disturbances in the tl
ranks (i the southern Republicans, i
but he is even more interested in
building up in the south a Pepthli- e
can party that will conimiii the re
spect ofi he blisiness and commercial e
intercs s of that sectiop. Ie realizes b
that for many years the Republican et
machine in each Southern state has
been a close corporation. It has been
the air of the Southern Republican p
managers to admit into their syndi- a
cate only enough leaders to till the el
federal clices in the state.
In many of the southern states it F
has been the program of these leaders i
to discourage. for inftace, the nomi- u
nation of any RIepublican congressman o
because, in the event of the election t
of the candidate. lie would control the e
postotlice' and other patronage and
put ther out of business. It will be S
remembered that in the last session of
congress, when a Republican who clad p
made the tight upon 1,!s own respon- r
sibility brought bis contest into the a
house, Representative Hull read a t
severe lecture to the machine of his a
state and charged that he had been ti
opposed for purely seltish reasons.
Mr. Hull, being vice chairman of the o
Republican congressional campaign
committee, is well acquainted with
conditions in the south, and his re
marks were based upon actual know
The president, it is said, is also dis- 0
appointed because the Viginia Rte- e
publicarps have failed to make domina
tions in one or two districts in theb
state. Chairman Agnew of the Rie
publican state committee in Virgini at1
was not in town Wednesday, but n
but when he was here some daiys agon
he stated that in the two districts
which had been omitted it was utter
ly useless for the Republicans to at- c
tempt to contest. In eight of the tenu
districts, however, a Republican can
diate wll run. Of late years there
has been an effort on the part of the
Virginia Republicans to capture one
or more doubtful districts, and their
efforts have not been altogether un- 'A
successful. In times past, however, t
the conditions which prevail farthers
south were noticeable in Virginia, and 0
one year is recalled where the mana-g
gers absolutely discouraged the nomi-i
nation of a Republican state ticket in t
order that they might retain their a
position as controllers of the federal b
patronage. It is this condition which s'
the president desires to remedy. b
ie wants the Republican party 'in t
the south. even though it be in a e,
minority, to be actuated by unselfish
motives aud to proceed upon the same tl
lines as the organization in the north. it
Thle recent political upheaval in d
Louisiana, where men like Wimberly, a;
who has been the machine leader, wass
given notice of his deposition fromb
otlice, is a part of the president's pro- g.
gram. He believes that in Louisiana, ~b
as in other southern states, there has A
been entirely too much attention s
iven to selecting delegates and ap- o
portioning the otlices and two little n
time devoted to furthering the inter- ~
ests of the Republican party. In Ar- P
kansas, thererore, there is an entirely a
new era, the Republican insurgents, c
as they are called, making an effort to ,r
break away from the men who have tl
itherto had the reins well in hand. h
In Alabama, also. under the presi- ti
ients intluence, there is to be this i
ear an effort to make the Republi- ~
ans a factor in the state. Men of c
recognized standing and ability are
~oming to the front and displacing at
the ld-time professional oilice seekers. ai
[n North Carolina the Republicans p<
ire aggressive, and will, as Senator et
Pritchard stated in The Post Wednes- ai
ay, make a campaign with the pro- P3
:ective principle or their party the Q
rincipal issue of the campaign-.a
The president believes that the Re- oi

WEATHER AND CROPS.
The Outlook for a Large Top Cr01 is
Mr. J. W. Iauer in his weekly re
port says; The temperature was ab
normair high during the first, and de
cidedly~ cool during the second half of
the week ending Monday. August 25,
with an average of 7 degrees, a maxi
mum of 101 degrees at Anderson on
the 20th. Blackille and Longshore on
the 21st, and a minimum of 59 de
grees at Cheraw and Spartanburg on
the 1th. Damaging hail occurred in
Anderson, Greenville and Newberry
counties, accompanied by destructive
high winds, but the injury to crops
was contined to limited areas. There
was more than a normal amount of
sunshine during the first of the week,
followed successively by much cloudi
ness and then clear weather.
Quite general rains fell on the 17th,
too late to be reported fir last week's
bulletin, and scattered showers oc
curred on the 20th, 21st, 22d and 23d,
the latter nearly general over the
gerater portion of the State. Some
points continue to stand in need of
rain, but generally the ground has
suticient moisture for the present
need of crops. In places the rain in
terferred with current farmwork, but
on the whole it was beneficial to grow
Late corn continues to make good
progress, and with limited exceptions
promises fair yields. Bottom land
corn isvery line.
Cotton failed to share f ully in the
general improvement of growing crops
due largely to the spread of rust that
stopped furthe~r growth, and caused
shedding and premature opening, al
though on clayey soils there is a new
growth that continues to bloom and
fruit. The outlook for a large top
crop is not promising. except on low
spots where there has been plenty of
moisture throughout the season. On
sandy uplands the plants have put on
all the fruit they will do, and are now
dying. Cotton is oping rapidly over
the whole State. Some correspondents
report nearly half the bolls open.
Picking is actively under wvay in all
sections. but showers and extreme
heat interfecrred at times with this
work. In places open cotton was'
damaged by the heavy rains and high
winds. The crop ranges from poor to
very good: and this diversity in condi
tion exists in all portions of the State,
and even in the same townshi ps. The

ear no birds on thoir headgear. That

gniicant. For tile roses that bloom
summer hats, be they blue, black,
reen or purple, are pathletically crush
i and faded; and the feminine heart
yearning for tile new fail hats, with
~eir seagulls, egrets, humming birds
ad Indian parrots. Here the Andu
on Society sends up a protest. The
~agulls, which are now being killed
y thousands for use as ornaments, are
e scavengers of our bays and har
ors. The plumes of the egret are
specially sought after; and as the
lumage is at its best when nestling,
ie naother bird is shot while rearing
s young and the orphan family is
.stroyed. At a single sale a few years
o in one of the large cities 116,490
ins of hlumming birds and 228,289
tdles of Indian parrots were sold

ets it would seem that the mission of

Advance of(Good Manners.
No rule of conduct is less diplomatic
in the young man of business than
rudeness, althouh some beginners
seem to deem the terms "business
like" and "ungracious' synonymous;
and not a few go out of their way to
be sour. abrupt, point-blank and dis
agreeable to all and sundry. The theory
held by such mistaken persons appears I
to be this: That the man who means
to wrest success from life must not
stop by the way to waste time over
politeness. Arguing upon the lines
that the world takes each indivdual
at his own valuation, the ignorant
nincompoop sets himself upas one who
has scarcely time to breathe, much
less to smile. so vast are the respon
sibilities that his important position
entails. But he is taking absolutely
a mistaken line. His opposite in
manners tempers his inexperience
with a softened air of diffidence, meets
his contemporaries with a smile of
greeting instead of with a defiant
s(owl, and goes out of his way to be
thoughtful and courteous. lie knows
the value of making friends, and
realizes to the full how bad it is for a
young man's future should he earn a
reputation for bumptiousness and bad
manners. The business king may
please himself as to the manner he
adopts. To some the reputation of a
choleric disposition is useful, for it
keeps off tritlers. le who desires not
to be jostled must himself jostle
others. Such is the modern shibboleth,
taught by the storm and strees of
existence to the aspirant for wealth
and wide prosperity. The old maxim
is more subtle, and therefore, less
thorougly comprehended. Yet it is a
straightforward piece of couusel
teaching merely the beauty of each
man doing unto others as he would
that men should do unto him. Pre
sumably, every person prefers to be
sboken to with gentle courtesy rather
than with brutal insolence, and to do
a business not as if he and his cus
tomer were bitter enemies, but as
friend and friend. Despite this, how
ever, there is more than a tendency to
ally the haughtiest air to a capacity
for commercial qualities.-New York
Hurrah for the Farmer:

Journal. According to the figures, we

consist, so the otticial estimate runs,
of ai corn crop of 2,422,000,000 bushels,
634,000,000 bushels of wheat and 806,

Texas, where the crops were damaged
by the recent droughts, are in the

stocks have been allowed toI
run down, and they are buying

The feature of the trade is that goods ,
are wanted earlier than in previous
seasons. All the factories are said to
be busy. Railroads are having a larger
movement of merchandise to tile agri
cultural sections than last year, and
tratlic generally is fully as heavy as last1
year. Money is plenty and cheap, and
the West never had so much prosperi-1

for wheat! hurrah for oats: Hurrah
for all of us. but especially hurrah for
the farsighted, hardworking farmer
who planted the crop that has broken
the record! In this conntection we
would ask why should not the South

ty that has overwhelmed the farmers<
of the West? There is but one an-4
swer, and that is that our farmers
stick to cotton. while the farmers of
the West diversify their crops.

6o Says a Colorado Chesist Who Has
Investigated the Merits of a Nev
ly-Discovered Proems Which
Egeets a Big Sving.
A newly-discovered process for ex
tracting gold from ore publicly an
nounced at Denver the other day af
firms that the present system causes
the loss of about 97 per cent. or the
gold which might be extracted. Tfit
scheme would not attract the atten
tion it has done in the city were it
not for the fact that Willard Teller,
brother of United States Senator

has announced himself satisfied that
the process is scientific and feasible
for the treatment of large bodies of
The invention is called the Wynn
process after Prof. Wynn, the alleged
discoverer. Briefly, it consists of pul
verizing the ore, treating it in a tank
with chemicals and then extracting
the gold by fire. In all chemical
processes heretofore invented the
gold is precipitated or held in solu
tion until extracted by other acids.
[n the Wynn process the gold rises
with other matter as a scum.
On the safe in the office of Mr.
Teller is a piece of ore which, accord
ing to skilled assayers of Denver,
:arries one to three dollars in gold
to the ton. Of this ore 1,000 pounds
were treated the other day. The re
sult was the recovery of $60 worth of
gold. At this rate the ore carries
$120 to the ton. The fire test loses
$117 upon every ton.
"I will say that I have gone into
this experimentation closely and con
scientiously and have reached the
bottom," said Mr. Teller. "Every
phase of doubt has gradually disap
peared and I know the process is a
success. I do not say that it will ap
ply to all ores, or that its effects are
uniformly the same. I do not claim
that we know accurately thesspecific
