The visit of Albert M. Carpenter to j
Anderson causes Home to punce uno!
recall the fad that lt was he who
bundled the work which has resulted
?a tin- beuutlfuJ institution we call
ours -Anderson College. Mr Car
penter o? ?ourse did not do it all.
Even UK thought may not have been'
his. The lute Fred (J. Brown, Wm.I
lt Osborne, lt. S Lig?n, fitas S. Sul
livan. and other progressives had
dreamed of a college on this site.
Hut it -.vas Mr. Carpenter, who, as'
secretar/ of thc Chamber of com
merce, saw something must be done,
and put tito wheel in motion. Just
ul ihut critical time Anderson was be
llin divided, and what was worse, was
falling hack. Tin- prospect was any
thing hut encouraging.
It was not the work of a moment
lo start the campaign to get a college
for Anderson. The plans were con
sidered for weeks. In the very midst i
of the campaign the two small mills :
east of the city were smashed.:
Those were bad days for cotton mills,
when Brown and Sully and Hayno
were shoving tile market to .20 centH.,
But, even in the face of this Ander
son College was started, because Au
dersun pulled together.
And after the pledges were taken
and tho movement launched, there!
were stalwart, wlunlng personalities
hero to carry it through, over obBta-/

whirlwind campaign for suVjscrlp

THE VISITING! PREACHERS
There are in tho city today two
preachers of note. The Rev. Jas. D.
Kinsrd of Greenwood comes here to
organize a branch of the Lutheran
church. The Lutheran denomination
?B somewhat ltkc tho Prebytorian in
belief and the Episcopal in form. !t
ia making a great deal of progress In
the south. Twenty years ago in the
capltul of the state this denomination
was very weak, two small, struggling
chur hes. Today there are in Colum
bia two strong churches and two or
more new churches, a theological
seminary and a publication house that
ts valued at more than $100.000. This
is the central publication house of all
the liUtheraus south ot Pennsylvania.
The other preacher who is here to
day Is Rev. D. E. Camak of Spartan
burg, who is the founder of a splendid
work that is being conducted in the
outskirts oft that city, an industrial
school for the help of young men and
women who work Itt textile plants.
Thia school gives them an opportunity
to assist In paying their way through
school by work in tho mills. Ander
son people will recall thc splendid ap
peal made by this young man when
Conference met here a little over a
year ago. Rev. J. W. SpeaWe of this
city ls one of tho trustees and most
enthusiastic warkers for thia school.
Mr. Camak will preach In Mr.
Speake's absence. The school recently
received a legacy of several thousand
dollars and has provided itself a beau
tiful home which limy be awn from

WH? NOT WORK IS CONGRESS?
Mr. Speaker ( lark is quoted as
saying recently that the congress
would noon find it necessary to re

ami so voluminous have become the

fried meat set in this day charge
Wilson with sycophancy to the same
power. There Is nothing new In it.
it is the virus that corrupted the pol
iticians or all ages, in all climes and
amcng all races.
Here is the Hon. Vardaman, who
says lie loves the flag with thc same
fervor John A. Logan used to deliver
himself of. and he has gotten himself
in such a patriotic ocstacy about it
that he has forgotten the nigger long

opulent snip iruat monopoly mat is

Senator will speak on the bill.
Now this row about canal tolls ls

again. The Hon. Vardaman was dis

and dragoous-in 1912 at Baltimore,
and lie will be just as signally discotn.

ministration in 1914 as he was when
he mustered himself against Wilson's
candidacy two years ago. The isBue
then was: "Shall Woodrow Wilson

issue today. Vardaman was against
Wilson then. .. He ia with Clark now.

himself as to vindicate the wisdom of
the Baltimore convention of 1912, in
rejecting his nomination.
Now, there i? so doubt of tbs per
sonal popularity of Champ Clark and
lt is founded on affection more than
on admiration. The day the "rule"
was brought in Clark and Underwood
got immense applause from the Re
publicans; but the day the debate was
closed on the bill after the rule was
adopted lt was proposed by the real
democrats of congress who abomi
nate the special privilege of a ship
subsidy, "to give the old man a band."
And they did so without demur and
without stint with the understanding
that they intended "to run thu steam
roller over bim and smash him as
flat as a batter? uke when the vot?
was taken," and that was all right.
It did the old fellow a heap of good
and did the cause of true Democraroy
no harm. THhe steam roller was there
and in action.
But the least said about Champ's
speech, the bettor-lt was claptrap,
hyperbole, an appeal to ignorance and
prejudice. It will be a big run at
Terrapin Ridge, 'Possum Scratch and
The sole issue before the House was
this. Shall the Democratic party ad

Atlanta. April 18.-At laut ians are

"Damaged Goods" ls the play that

est dramatic presentment that has
ever been offered to the American
theatre going public. Condemned by
thc censors in England, lt was praised
by some of the greatest s nd
most thoughtful English men of let
ters and reformers.
No play in this generation has
cuused the amount of serious and
thoughtful criticism pro and con that
"Damaged Goods" has. Some peo
ple believe lt is the proper thing to
do to present such subjects on the

has been one of the active contenders
for CongreBman Wyatt Aiken's job
and this announcement may occasion
some surprise, not alone in An demon
county but all over the district as
lt is-announced that this is due to'
the fuel that Mr. Cheshire's has a
humber of business' deals pending
which will require so much of hit:
time.that it Will be utterly impossi
ble i'or bim to make the .strenuous and
active campaign necessary and he has
therefore, decided to withdraw , his
?am? and leave it with the other can
When asked the question to whom
he would throw his support Col. Ches
hire said that this would all depend
upon who entered tan race. "With
the present announced candidates, Mr.
Aiken, Fred H. Dominick and Capt.
Frank S. Evans of Greenwood, I shalt
throw my support to Capt. Evans,"
. said Mr. Cheshire, "and thal support
will be well wbrth having. However.
I bear that strong pressure ls being
I brought to bear upon Dr. Prank Smith
of Easley and should Dr. Smith make
i the race I may conclude that he ia
the strongest candidate in the race
and lend my support to him."
When asked if the public wonld not
wonder about his refusing to sunsort
mr. uominiex, an intimate friend of
the governor and allied with the ad
ministration forcee. Col. Cheshire said
"You probably know what my,support
in Anderson county is worth. .That
support has always been-given freely
