He will be treated as a cltizenfitaas
a gentleman, as be is. If he gets t*3^
best of the argument, we will bow
gracefully, for we esteem him to be
an honorable man.
Our "attack was merely an appeal
to this candidate and a number of
other citizens of Anderson who really
have- been misted into believing just
as he does. We observe that the pub
lication referred to in our opening
sentence did not try to answer our
arguments, stated in the politest and
fairest way possible.
We laid down certain propositions.
We invite contradiction.
Wo stated that Anderson bas a fair
contract for public utilities.
We stated that what this town needs
now ls not a post mortem over things
that have gone before, for wc certainly
hope all will be threshed out in the
courts and the public put ia posses
sion of all facts, and that matter end
The local afternoon publication has
not endeavored to answer any o? thoa*
arguments. Why not! We leave a
fair and nnprejndiced public to study
this natter calmly.
Vor the second time that publica
tion, finding itself unable to answer
the arguments presented In this pa
per has resorted to mudslinging. We
will in patince and for the last time
pass that by. We can suffer the
slings of Injustice and will do so
willingly if we do any little thing to
convince the people of Anderson of
the diffefrence between calm, honest
Judgment and petty spite.
We repeat it. For the last time we
will refuse to be diverted from our
desire to defend gentlemen ot honor
In our community who have had veil
ed poisoned attacks made upon them
(rom some source or other. If we
must stop for a moment to defend
ourselves from the tongue of bander,
lt will be a proper defense, and one
itatement will be enough.

Atlanta, May 16.-"Have faith in the
white man, he is your friend."
Booker T. Washington, the negro
educator offered this advice to bis
race in the course ot an address here9
before the annual negro christian
studeuts' conference. He declared
that notable progress , in better co
operation between the negro and the
white races bad been made in the last
"By right living, obeping the layWa
and showing due deferonce to every
white man, you will demonstrate to
the world what education mokes out

Washington, "and in this way you will
show the white man more vividly than
in any other way the need of educa
more widely than at present."

It.has been found that from
night *o ? or 8 o'clock In ibu .Bor;
heavy mists and fogs hang in the ct
which even without the menace of fe
will be one of the most difficult parts
[er the canal for the pilots. ?
?Captain Rodman has recently made
a number of trips through the cuts
durlijg these hours. He says that
ucarty always thc mist was BO tteavy
that, even bis small launch had to
slow down and feel tts way. His'eV
j placation ot the fog is the difference
between the temperature of the Char-,
gres river as it Hows out through the
cut and the surrounding atmosphere,
causing heavy condensation during
the late night hours.
Canal operations will start with riot
more .than eight pilots on the payroll,
according to Capt Rodman, who has
been besieged with applications for;
pilot, Jobs. There seems to have been
a : general belief that sixty or more
pilots would be engaged upon thc op?
enlng of,the new gateway of oceans,
but Capt. Rodman declares that six
or eight pilota will answer all pur
poses for some time, and if there is
not enough work for that many pilots
the men ..will be kept bu ny on some
other kind of work.
