HE SHOU.D FUT UP.
It takes all manner of people
to make a world, and in every
calling there will be found men
who are indiscreet, and their de
sire for notoriety. causes them to
enter where angels would fear to
tread. The traveling men's asso
ciation has at its head a Mr. Dud
ley and in the name of his asso
ciation he endorses the charges
of corruption made by Senator
Tillman in his Richburg speech,
against the state senate. Senator
Tillman however, had the decen
cy to retract the slander, but Mr.
Dudley renews it. The probabil
ity is the drummers bill will come
up again at the next session and
Mr. Dudley will have an oppor
tunity to give evidence against
those senators who were corrupt
ed by the railroads. Mr. Dudley
should make good or receive the
contempt he deserves should he
not stand by his endorsement.
Among the travelling men in this
State are as highminded men as
there are in any profession or
calling, at the same time. like
other vocations there are snides.
who would be a good riddance if
they were kicked out. The high
minded traveling men have a con
tempt for a slanderer, and when
a man represents them, makes a
grave charge, or endorses one
made by another, he must make
good, or stand a convicted slan
derer and get out of their asso
ciation. Therefore Mr. Dudley
must come forward and show who
it is that the railroads bribed to
vote against the drummer's bill,
which, had it become a law would
have forced the general public to
pay $5 per thousand miles than
they have to pay now.
Solicitor Otts seems to have
things on the go up in Union,
whence he can secure evidence
against the notoriouis "chicken
farm" in that county, and when
the jury refuses to convict has
the foreman arrested. No1 wond
er the grand jury in its present
ment tells the court that they be

The burnmng of the Columbia
colee is acanlamity. not only to
the Methodist denomination, hut
to the State at large. However
theapiritmanifestedto arise from
the ashes and goon to rebuiild at
once is cause for rejoicing. The
money for this grand purpose
will be forth comning, every coun
ty is interested and every one
will help, and. will regard it a
privilege to do so.
William Jennings Bryan has
erupted again, this timnehg rokeI
loose out on Texas where he is
.to lecture atso much per lec. tol
remark that he believes both
-Peary and Cook are Democrats,
because Democrats are so accus
tomed to being out in the cold,
that they do their best work
there. All of which may be so,
and perhaps accounts for Bryan's
success. He has been out in the
cold a long time
We' regard the law requiring
counties not moving to have a
new county to defray a propor
tionatepartof the expense wheth
er the same ever culminates in
the formation of a new county as
very unjust. Why, any time some
disgruntled set of political out
casts who desire to do so can
force upon the taxpayers a tre
mendous expense under the ex
case of getting up a new county.
Thismatter should be looked af
ter at the next session.
President Taft has begun his
. -tour of the country. When he
comes to South Carolina. it is
hoped he will receive such a wel
come that it can be truly said, it
excelled all others. in Charles
ton he will be entertained most
lavishly, but in that city his en
tertainment will be altogether
local. In Columbia it should take
on the proportions of a State af-I
*fair, and every county should
have a part in the celebration.
The Peary-Cook controversy
has reached the stage of causing
doubts to arise in the minds of
people, who were disposed to be
lieve both have discovered the
Pole, but since one accuses the
other of lying and the other says
his rival stole his supplies, and
broke open his mail. the thing is
taking on a rather fishy smell.
We think before too much i
made of either Cook or Peary,
proof of their claims should be
submitted to a competent board,
and if there be no such board in
the service of the government,
-then we take the liberty of sug
gesting the indicted gang of al
leged dispensary grafters, about1
to be tried in Columbia: these
men, we have no doubt, will be
able to settle the North Pole con
troversy, if permitted to go over

field is dead. There never lived
a more chivalrous soul, no man
was more beloved. and none more
highly esteemed. The State of
South Carolina has lost, in the:
death of Col. Bacon one of its,
most knightly sons, devoted and
true, and the Press will have to
wait many years until it can have
such a grand representative.
Such men are not born to every

at our annual gatherings. and his
absence will be sorely agissed by;
the thousands who loved to read

A NOVEL PLAN.
Proposal is Made to Have Condes Support
- Ovn Veterans.
To the Editor of The News anC. Cou
rier: Allow me to again trespass upon
your space in the interest of thtee whom
you have kindly and generously served
upon every occasion, viz, the Confeder
te Veteran. We want to agitate right
now a change in tae pension sy'stem in
vogue; that one Solons may sleep upon1
and cogitate over the radical change
desired and be prepared to act trompt
ly at the next session of the Legisla
tre, for the departure of these old sol
diers is at hand. The pension system
now consists of a township board of pen-1
sion commissioners, a county boards and
a State board. This method is necessar-1
ily cumbersome and slow, the State
board only meeting once a year. If a
soldier was admitted to the pension roll
his case could not be pasf-e upon for a
year, and he debarred during this period
from any help at all. The delay in get-I
ting the checks from Columbia is very
aggravating to the poo-r old fellows who
ride many miles to the Court Houset
after allowing ample time for them to
amrve, and upon asking in a tremulous
voice if they had arrived are told indiff
this disappointment was to one of them
no one knew but himself, for his tobac
co was out, his coffee was out and his
toes were out: but he had seen darker
das than this and bore it with grimI
deiance- There will be introduced at
the approaching session a bill abolish
ing the State pension board, and auth
orizing the county commissioners to in
crease the county tax as many mills as
are necessary to comfortably and prop
erly provide for the nensioners of their
resec tive couni'ties. This solves the
problem completely and entirely as to
the tender and watchful care of these
old soldiers, for there will sring up imo
mediately a generous rivar between
the counties as to which can do the most)
for their old heroes. The Daughters of
the Confederacy will take on new life
and be kept busy driving to their cot
tages and taking them jellies and sweet
smiles, and all will feel in each county
a sense of responsibility for their well
being. Those sweet daughters will see.
while taking them the jellies, with
laughter and song, that all broken pan-!
es in windows are renewed, the broken
back of the chimney patched with new
brick and a strip of carpet by his bed
for his poor old feet to rest upon while
drsing on cold mornings. This is gen
uine chiarity, grathfully received, and
ranks higher than the stre'ing of their
graves in the spring with flowers, which
is a mere sentiment, for the occuipants
were often neglected in life.
The State, in surrendering the old;
soldiers to their native counties, in no
sense abandons them, but tenderly
places them in the arms of their rela
tives, friends and neighbors, feeling
that their well being is now assured and
that the home people will awake gladly
to their sense of duty which was so for
gotten under the State guardianship.
This change will be most grateful to
the pensioners, for they so much prefer
to be cared for by relatives and friends
and I can assure the Leg''slature that
the people of every county are eager to
receive their heroes.

Until yesterday's good rain there had
been nothing more than an occasional
shower in this vicinity sinte the cotton
season opened: the drought although
too continuous for most purposes has
enabled uninterrupted harvesting for
several weeks, and cons-i uently the;
cotton receipts hav-e so far een all but
phenomenal. That deterioration has
taen place in an unauestionabie fact,
but the price received should make up
for all deficiencies Whether warrant
ed or not the Summerton market on
Tueday reached the high point of 121
cents., which was of course the result of
sharp competiti->n. That was not a rep
resentative price and was only for a
verv few small lots. Even at 12 cents
which seems to be the prevailing price
today, our farmers are hurrying their
otton to the ::in with a view of putting
it on the market. Yesterday over i10
baes were ginned in town- and about
10) weighed on the local platfor:n.
Corresponding strides are being made
in all the various business enterprises
in town: and the freight receipts are
unusually lar::e. Coincident with the
arrival of their new fall goods, the Sum
merton .1ercantile Co., produced a val-I
uable assect to their Dry Goods bu.sines
the services of .\isses Lucy .\Ood and
Alethea Davis. The Strauss-Rogan Co.
has recently re-parinted the interior of
their building and made such imaprove
goods.. As an adjunct. to their business,
the suntnerton Ihardware Co., are act
in. a,. agents fut ga.soline engine outtits.
in which much interest is being arous
ed. These engines we understand, may
be put to various uses-from the thrash
ng of oats to the generating of electric
ity. Rumor has it that Capt. J. A.
James of the Sum merton Hardware Co..
will soon install one za his home for the
purpose of lighting.
The runaway accident on Saturday of
last week will serve to prove the wisdom
of the town ordinance with regard to
hitching vehicles on Main street. A
horse belongin:: to Jim Joues, colored,
ran a considerable distancc down Main
St.. kicking the top off the buggy: and
throwing the d, iver out. There hap
pened to be only one other buggy on
ihe street. but that one was struck. in
curring however no serious damage. We
can not help but wonder what might
ha-e been the consequecces had the'r
becen any number of vehicles hitched
along the street.
