In a long distance telephone con

Columbia Record man, whom he call

tion that he had made such state

man to q .ote him as strongly in de

would permit. Major Wylie's state

appeared Thursday morning in the

dispensary directors, was on the C. &

Yorkville and Clover he said in the
presence of Dr. J E Massey and Mr
F. P. McCain, who were going to CO

that the state dispensary has alway.
been carrupt and it is as corrupt as I'
has ever been. He said that the statt
board is corrupt; but he is only one
mina aga!n t two and cinnot help him
self. He cited that recently, over hi
protest, the other two members of the
board has purchased two thousant
cases of so-called case whiskey. Upor
the arrival of the whiskey he, Wylie
insisted on havi-g it analyzed. T
analysis showed 2i per cent. of alcoho

Dr. Massey and Mr. McCain both re

in their speeches at Clover."
In commenting on the E-qurier'
article the Columbia State said: "Th.
above statement is confirmed by f
special to Tne State from Yorkville
which gives the same report of D.
rector Wylie's conversation witi
Messrs. Massey and McCain. Th
State endeavored Wednesday to ob
tain statemenits concerning the matte;
from Mr. Wyvlie and Messrs Masse:
and MaCain. It was found that Mr
Wylie, whose home is in IRchburg
Chester county, is at Cievelant
Springs, N. C. A telegram was sen
to him there asking him for a state
ment by telegraph. No reply was re
ceived, it being possible that Mr
Wylie was unable to reply Thursda:
night. Messrs. Missey and McCair
were both away from home Wednes
day in attendance upon the York
county campaign meeting at som
point~ in the county and fleither 0:

The matter is most serious. The
teacher cannot possibly do his best

It is a disgrace to send to the pub

made the victims of blows and bru
cality at home and expect the teacher
o do the hardest of all work, the In
stilling of education, without recourse
to the only kind of persuasion that
!he child is accustomed to obey.
Nowhere in the world is paternal
love more highly developed than in
imerica. Nowhere are greater sac

Investigate these things if you will
But investigate them for yourselves
remembering the tendency of child
cod to exaggeration.
-Don't be made foolish by the fact
tat it is ycur own child that talks.
Find out for yourself, without en
oouragng the child to disobedienc'
by listening too eagerly to its story.
?en, If you find that your child has
spoken absolutely truthfully, take
uch steps as you may please.
1)3n't laugh at your child when it
ells of the "smart things" that it
does at school to bother the teachei
or to bother other pupils.
Never try to Influence the child
against the teacher under any con
ditions. You hurt your own child In
dinitely more than you hurt the teach
er when you encourage the child to
rebel against necessary discipline.
Remember that tine work of schoo
teachers in the nobllest and the hard
est work in the world. Remember
that it is infinitely the most impor
tant work in this world.
Y.. n ask of the teacher a devotion
chat can only be given as a result of
the highest possible moral character.
Instinct compels us to make great
sacrifices to the children of our body.
Nature attends to that, the human
race would die without It.
The school teacher is not the fath
er or the mother of the children sit
ting on the benches. Yet we ask of
the teacher a devotion greater than
that of any other public servant.
We demand that he give every ounce
of his ability, of his Interest, to chil
dren that will not thank him whose
success he will not live to see or share,
exhausting his vitality in return for
extremely poor pay.

Ube bitter speech made by the ne
o Deas in assuming the chairm'an
lip of the Republican State Conven
on in Columbia recently should fur
ish food for thought for the white peo
le of South Carolina, or rather that
rtion of them that do not agree
ith the views expressed by Deas.
.fter calling the convention to order
)eas made what The State called a
red hot" speech in which he said the
onvention might if it so desired nomi
ate a state ticket. Other business of
he convention, he said, was the reor
anization of the State executiue com
ittee. In its report of the bitter
peech The State says "Deas v armed
tp as be proceeded, raising his voice
0 a loud pitch, and declared that if
he putting to filight of one of the
reatest powers on earth by the Japa
iese, a colored race, was not encour
gement and hopes for the regro, he
lad water in his veins." Then he
houted "today is the time for the
Irown trodden to climb," which dec
aration Uhe State says was greeted
Uhen Deas, says Uhe State, paid his
ompliments to Senator Uillman and
:he dispensary, asserting that every
nan who has touched the "rotten dis
pensary, even the distinguished Dem
crotic State Chairman, had come out
irty." He said that the primary sys
tem was a curse; formerly the best ele
ment could keep down the worst, but
such was not the case now. He said
that the negro was no longer plowing
one yaller mule," but that many
were operating six and eight-mule
farms,'others were bankers, real es
tote agents, merchants, etc. "Colored
men don't want to rule." said Deas.
He declared that the State was cor
trolled by the "understrata of white
society," meaning the men who voted
for and sustained Tillman.
Uhe speech was worse than "red
hot," as the State calls it. It was in
cendiary, and is liable to breed trouble
between the people who compose what
Deas is pleased to term "the under
strata of white society" and the ne
gro, and may cause a few negroes to
be lynched for presuming to act on
the declaration that "today is the
time for the down trodden to climb,"
This remark taken in cor nection with
what precedes it shows what was in
the heart of Deas when he uttered it.
He had just declared "that if the put
ting to flight of one of the greatest
powers on the earth by the Japanese.
a colored race, was not encouragement
and hope fo the negro, he had water
in his veins" Uhen he shouted "to
day is the time for the downtrodden
to climb." In effect Deas says the
negroes are superior to the whites.
and if they want to climb -they must
do like the Japanese put the hated
white man to flight. It will be a cost
ly experiment for the negro when he
undertakes to carry out the bad ad
vice given him by Deas,- and we
would advise him to repudiate It.
Deas' abuse of S"'nator Uillman and
the dispensary is of no consequence,
aut when he says "that every man
who has touched the dispensary, even
he distinguished Democratic State
chairman, had come out dirty," he ut
tered a lie that should not be allowed
to pass without challenge. Uhe same
lie had been given circulation by one
of the "so-called upper strata of white
society" who is a candidate for the
State senate from Richland County,
but it had been rundown and shown to
a lie and nothing but a lie before it
was repeated by Deas in his malignant
bitter speech in the Republican con
vention. Ubis speech amounts to
nothing within itself except to show
be the frendsofajleadingnegro's mind
From beginning to end it 'bristles
with hatred to the white man and
everything connected with him. To
what extent this hatred is shared by
by other negroes is a matter thit can
not be exactly determined, but the
fact that Deas' speech was applauded
the members of the convention,
which was largely composed of ne
groes, proves that there are many
other negroes besides fleas who se
cretly hate the white man- and are
ready to put him to ifight if they
thought they could.-The Times and

if there is a pitiful object in the

finical about his health, who lives in

it will yield another fruit. This process
may go on for a term of years. In the

These are broken off, and when stuck
