THE CRY IS PRESS ONWARD.
The immigration movement
in this Stato has assumed such
proportions that its iiportance
has been recogni7ccd by the
United States government to the
extent of appropriating a large
sum of money for the erection of
buildings at the Charleston uln
migrant station. In our judg
ment, this is but the beginning
of a new era for the city- by-the
sea: we look forward to the time
when. as the shiploads of people
from foreign countries are em
ptied into Charleston, the pro
mioters of industrial enterprises
seeking labor to develope their
investments, will locate in and
around Charleston, and in the
course of a few years that city
will become a manufacturing
The real estate in Charleston
is no longer a buried investment,
and from now on property values
will enhance in leaps and bounds.
Not only will Charleston become
a great manufacturing center,
but her iobbing interests will in
crease, as the greatest of South
ern ports is developed. The ship
ping will take on a new and vig
orous life, and this will be fol
lowed by more and better rail
road facilities. There is nothing
to hinder a great progressive
movement, but everything points
to a magniticient development.
While we have every confi
dence in Charleston's growth
and prosperity, we have an equal
-confidence in the effect reaching
-throughout the State. As the
tide of immigration strikes the
port at Charleston, the different
elements arriving must seek
their varied vocations: those
from manufacturing cities of
Europe will seek employment in
factories, artisans will go where
their work is in demand, agricul
turalists will not-be content with
city life and they will seek the
farms. The whole country will
feel the effect of the arrivals,
and ajli will soon recognize the
advantage and the wisdom of
The State of South Carolina
cannot of itself do all that is
necessary to make this move
ment a success, but there is every
reason to believe, the other
Southern States will do their
share. The South'ern 1mmigra
tion Association of which ex
Gove-nor Heyward is the head,
will bring about legislation in
several of the Southern States
that will finance an immigra
tion bureau which will invade
those rural sections of Europe
where a most desirable class of
peasantry is willing to come to
America to seek their fortunes,
and encourage the ambition of
their children. This class dis
tributed throughout the State,
and the South, will prove of de
cided advantage, industrially, and
socially; in a comparatively short
time the vexed racial problem
will be relegated, and there will
be a cosmopolitan population
competent to handle with intelli
gence, all situations and condi
The movement is in its infarncy
and, like all progress, it must
overcome obstacles of opposi
tion, its greatest danger now
comes from an element of politi
cians who, to further their poli
tical ends, must rely upon fan
ning the flames of prejudice.
There was an attempt to cripple
the immigration scheme in the
recent session of the legislature
by withholding from the de
partment the necessary means.
The arguments of those try
ing to cripple the machinery
was altogether without reason
ing, and only intended for future
campaign thunder for stump
consumption. Whenever we
hear any man advocating any
thing which tends to prevent
progress, we regard him of nar
row calibre and not the proper
person to advise an intelligent
people, therefore when we hear
politicians endeavoring to stir
up a prejudice against our im
migration movement, we have
no patience with such, because
we believe they are not prompt
ed from patriotic motives.
OUR TAX SYSTEM WRONG.
Our attention has been direct
ed to* the present method of mak
ing tax returns, there is no
doubt that the present system
has much to do with the inequal
ity of taxation, and by this sys
tem there are thousands of dol
lars of taxable value which
escape taxation entirely. In orr
judgment, the system "can be re
medied by relieving the auditor
from receiving the returnls and
put this duty upon the town
ship assessors. Let the town
ship assessors have a certain
number of days in their- respec
tive townships to receive tihe re
turns and when the time is up,
turn the retur-ns taken over
to the auditoi-, thus i-elieving the
auditor from a lot of work which
can be more pr-ofitably spent mi
his office, at the sametime put
ting theasmessors in a positior
to be in closer touch with those
liable to taxation, and thereby
through their knowledge of the
taxable property in their respec
tive townships secure all of the
Under the present systei
there is nuch tax-dodging, and
the assessments are so unequal
ithat many honest taxpayers are
being burdened unjustly. On ac
count of the unequalled assess
ment of property an Act was
passed at the recent session of
the General Assembly, permit
ting a reassessment of property
in Pickens county, and the argu
ment for this unusual proceed
ing was to the effect, that 1i
certain sections of that county
property was assessed in accord
ance with the Comptroller Gen
eral's instructions at its full
value, while in other sections it
was not so assessed, and thereby
over taxing those who had com
plied with the law. If, however,
the township assessors had been
engpuwercd to assess the prop
erty, 1o such discrimination
could have occured, and all of
the property would have been
more equally placed upon the
To change the law in this
respect would entail some addi
tional expense, but the additional
amount of property placed upon
the books for taxation would be
far greater than the cost.

The seating of Senator Smoot
or rather the failure to unseat
him, is a victory for consti
tutional rights, and a rebuke to
an "holier than thou" element,
which is constantly trying to
force their narrowness upon the
American liberty-loving people.
The evidence showed Smoot to
be a man of pure life, and we
doubt if some of the Senators
that voted to unseat him can
show such a clean bill of morals.
yet, they would stdne Smoot to
appease a popular demand, and

be questioned. Of the editors
mentioned, we are the only one
holding office, and if we consid
ered our personal interests, we
would not hold office. Had Gov
ernor Ansel tendered us an ap
pointment on the commission,

Bow to Avoid Catching Colds.
As everyone is liable to catch a cold
and as colds are dangerous because
they may terminate in chronic throat
or lung diseases. Every one should be
interested in learning how to avoid
colds. The way is simple. Never
sleep too cold, never fall asleep in a
cold roam, or while sitting in a cold
draft, never sit or lie in a cold room
or a draft. No one ever catches a cold
when the body and mind are active,
no matter how cold one may get. If
you are su Tering from a cold or its
effects. Raydale's Cough Elixir is the
quickest and best remed~y you can use.
Rydaes Cough Elixir is sold under a
guarantee. 25 and 50 ets. a bottle.
:For the past week we have
had a taste of prohibition, and
it has demonstrated convincing
ly to our mind, that unless Con
gress will enact a law to prohi
bit the railroads from hauling
liquor into a State that enacts a
a prohibition law, the enforce
ment of such a law could not be
attained even to a degree of
respectability. There is not an
express office in the State but
what has had an increase of
liquor hauling since the 16th
day of the present mnonth, and
this business will increase as
long as the dispensaries are
closed. The new law to regu
late the liquor nuisance should
be given a fair trial, and if with
first-class management it cannot
be conducted without scandal,
then it will be in order to adopt
some other plan.

There are many newspapers

in this respect he has been dis

that. to offer opposition to the

Bears the The Kind You Have Always Bought
It is amusing to watch the
editorial columns of the Colum
bia Record since the enactment
of the Cary-Cothran laxv. That
paper, in and out of season, de
fended the integrity of the State
dispensary and everybody and
everything connected therewith.
It got the habit. and it just can
not break itself. It stood off in
amazement because Governor
Ansel did not appoint politicians
to wind up the State machine,
and it is equally amazed because
the reports from the county
boards show a tendency to turn
the affairs of county dispensaries
over into the hands of business
men who have no political as
pirations. We believe the
Record will tind many things
for it to be amazed at, and when
the Cary-Cothran Act has been
in operation twelve months, it
will wonder how it ever gave
itself consent to offer such stub
