JAMES H. CHANDLER.
Seldom has it been our duty to record so sudden adeath.
A dark gloom spread over our whole community when it
was learned that Mr. Jim Chandler was dead. Not only
has Sumter lost one of its best and most honored citi
zens, but Clarendon has also lost one of its best friends.
His death has brought the bitter cup of sorrow to the
<ns of friends 'and relatives. He was one of nature's
noblemen in its truest sense. His was the soul of honor,
and his friends and friendship were sacred to him. There
was a daily beauty about his life which won every heart.
He believed in the fatherhood of God and the brother
hood of man. He believed that the man who .scatters
flowers in the pathway of his fellowmen, who lets into
the dark places of life the sunshine of human sympathy
and human happiness, is following in the footsteps of
There is no language at our command by which we
can fittingly portray the sincerity of this man's Christian
character; and in the experience of a lift time, the writer
can safely say, he never met one who seemed to more
nearly walk hand in hand with God. Conscience guided
every act. He was a model of mental industry in his
efforts to entertain and instruct his people. He was strict
ly honest in the service he rendered. In short, he was
not only a Christian, but he was an honorable gentle
man, in the highest sense that term implies. To man,
woman or child, saint or sinner,' he always extended a
cordial greeting that sent a ray of light to brighten tehir
pathway in the journey of life. Jim Chandler is gone,
he will never be seen again, but his deeds of kindness
will ever rest in the memories of those that knew him.
SHOULD FUTURE GENERATIONS PAY?
In all large public undertakings where permanent im
provements were sought to be made it has become a cus
tom to issue long-time bonds in order to secure the money
with which to finance the work.
Probably nine-tenths of the counties of nine-tenths of
the states of the union are bonded to a greater or less
extent, and scarcely a city or town of any importance
in the land but carries its bonded debt that has gone to
pay for public utilities.
ut in many cases the advocates of the bond issue
ho e had hard fights to carry their projects through.
Qne of the most serious objections has always been from
he man who "doesn't believe in saddling a debt on fu
Now let us see about this. Suppose, for instance, our
county has no railroad. For generations our ancestors,
and we ourselves, have laboriously hauled in our sup
plies and hauled out our products, realizing, when all
expenses were met but a meagre pittance for our year's
But a railroad is projected and we are told if we will
bond our county for a few hundred thousand dollars,
it will be put through. This we do. Now arises the
objection that we have placed a heavy debt on posterity.
Yes. But at the same time we have given posterity
the means to pay that debt and then be infinitely better
off than we and our fathers were.
Compare for a moment the difference in their con
dition, and our before the road was built. The average
county is about twenty-five miles wide. Suppose that
represented the distance to the nearest shipping point.
Do you see the enormous savings we have effected for
posterity in bringing the road to their doors?
Again, take the question of plikes. The same reason
img will hold good there. Whereas we and our fathers
toiled through mud and mire to drag fifteen or twentyr
b)ushels of grain to market our sons can hitch up an

And so on through the list of all permanent p~ublic im
But the work should be permanent, or at least as near
ly permanent as our best judgment can make it. When
we have builded to the best of our ability and have lain

What wvill the year 1.917 mean to this town, to this

What wvill he your personal attitude toward the making
of a better town, a more porsperous community, a more

The efforts of the individual citizen may accomplish
mmething. The cooperation of a collective people will
produce notable results.
Collective cooperation is only possible where confidence
and good will exist and where there is a determination
to utilize this combination to the ultimate good of all.
The man who holds a grouch against his neighbor
can not successfully pull in harness with that neighbor
so long as that grouch exists.

STATES PRICE OF PEACE
Also Gives Secret of Success in
New York, Dec. 26.-Preparedness
for peace through the medium of ihe
highest scientific development of re
sources which would have to be em
ployed in a war of defense by this
nation, was outlined today by George
F. Kunz, retiring vice president of
the section on social and economic
science, before delegates to the con
vention of the American Association
for the Advancement of Science.
"In the preparedness for peace,"
Mr. Kunz said, "we find a splendid
field for the utilization of our pro
jected museum of peaceful arts. If
one of the great powers had spent
$500,000,000 in technical and commer
cial schols, the present war would
not have Liken place and twenty
times that amount would not have
been expended. Cooperation and effi
ciency are the price of peace, and the
secret of success in war."
Referring to the offensive powver of
the submarine as showvn in the war,
Mr. Kunz', saidl:
"It behooves us to take time by the
forelock andl to build a~ great number
of these powverful, though perhaps
somiewhat perlidious engines of war.
We should have at least two fleets of
200 submarines, each, to guard our
Atlantic and Pacific coasts and the
routes to the Penama Canal. Thhis
preparedness for war in the sea
depths should be sup~lemented by an
eqtklly active preparation of aero
planes, hydro-aeroplanes andI Zep)pe
