We wish to be understood fully In
our attitude toward the reunion. We
have been licensed of what is tanta
mount to boorishness-in referring to
certain invited guests witn a degree
of lark of consideration. We would
not deuy the sons of veterans of the
state any of the hospitality which is
theirs by the right of having accepted
the invitation to Anderson. But we
insist that the Sons of Veterans, the
organization, should show some ex
cuse for existence.
The camp here In Anderson which
is to meet Monday morning in one of
few that has ever done anything for
the old soldiers. There ?B a great and
splendid work for the sons ot veterans
to do. Let them realize lt and get to
lt. There is history to be written,
history to ho preserved.
And when the reunion comes here,
lt>t'a have something ior.tM* sous and
daughters tn do. Let each-old snlrlier
in the parade-and make it a short j
march-have on the one side a glori'!
ous young woman of the south to
tell him that in thc year.-, to come his
devotion to the starry cross wil not
be forgot;and on the other aide let
him lean upon the supporting arm of
one of the sons of veterans who will
give a pledge that SQ long, as tho sun
warms this southland ot ours love for
the Confederate soldier will never lan
guish in the hearts of the youth.
STA Mt BY THC SCHOOLS
This week has in store a big oc
casion for Andorson-the meeting of
the schools of the county. Superin
tendent Swearingen has recently paid
some very high compliments to the
schools of this county, and th? schools
are the life of the country. We hope
thc people of the city of Anderson will
take a great desi of In treat in this
gathering this week and will give by
the'r personal alendante. every- on
couragment to the great work that ls
being carried on.
OR. H. W. BURTS
In publishing the card of Rev. Pr.
Burta of Columbia today we wish to
say that we did not see in the com

Political Pot Simmers;
State Convention Next !
i rUy Special Correspondence.)
Columbia, March 21.-'Politicians
are awaiting with a great deal of In
terest -the coming or the state dem
ocratic biennial convention in May
One, of the pleas of the opponents ot]
primary election reform in thc la
test general assembly was that if
there wore 'nb changes'in Sthe rules
governing the primary they'should be
made by J he democratic convention,
whose delegates fresh from the peo
ple., would 'be in better." position to
act 4 h an the general assembly; elected j
in il Ml'. Undoubtedly there will-be
an effort made in the convention to
amend the rules or the porty, to tic:
end thai r^p?ating similar irregular
ities may become a thing; bf 'the past
as fur us tho D?mocratie parly else*.!
Mon's in South Carolina are concern
The enormous vote of 1312 and the
recent near-scandal over the vVhaley-,
Il uglies election in the brat congres
sional district, will probably- bet used
as arguments by the advocates of the
primary elections reform. Judging by
attitudes of opponents of primary el
ection reform in the general assem
bly, they will argue In the Democrat
ic convention, that the primary of
1912 was above suspicion and that thc
rules which governed tho election then
are good enough to stay in effect in
Senatorial " ampaign.
There ls more than a possibility
that the fight for the United States
senate may develop Into a three-cor
nered or four cornered affair before
the campaign opens with Gov. Dlease
Sen?tor Smith, W. F. Stevenson and
John Gary IDva?s at corners Thc def
inite announcements for the scnat
race to date are those of Blease and
Evaus is known, though, to bo in a
very receptive frame of mind in re
gard to entering the United States
senate race, while Stevenson is be
lieved ?o .haye his car on the ground.
Blease aas recently spent some time
in Charleston. In view of his recon
ciliation, with Mayor Grace when the
general assembly' visited Charleston
in February hui trip is signiQcent. j
Except for a visit to Laurens to at
tend the burial of father-in-law, Sen-]
ator Smith has not been in South t
Carolina for some weeks. Ho hue
been kept very busy In the senate,:
working-for the passage of his cot-;
ton bill which he believes will benefit
the farmers of the South immeasur
ably by giving them better marketing
fscilltles for their cotton and sta
bilizing the price by definitely fixing
the a rades. JBVans baa recently vla
ted various counlib^ -?nd stopped for
awhile in Columbia. Stevenson has
not been traveling much. He may
stay out of the senate race and run
against Finley for congress.
There is a gambler's chance that
Blease ' may not rna for the United
States senate after all, but may offer
for governor again. Those who are
speculating on this chance say that
Blease has not been able to get a
candidate ' for..goTernor who can hold,
bia machine together and that he him.

a man who always bas a real message
to deliver. Judge Jster C. Pritchard.
?of Asheville, N. C., a United States]
Judge Pritchard comes to Anderson
undor the auspices of the local Y. M.
C. A. and he is decidedly one of the
best speakers that it might h uve been
possible to secure. He is a man of
high ideals, a deep thinker and at the
same time he is very forceful and a
most eloquent sneaker. That Secre
tary Burnett should have been able to
.secure him for Anderson is cause for
congratulstibn and Anderson people
will not fail to take advantage of the
opportunity presented them when
Judge Pritchard appears this after
noon.. . **
The speaker will arrive in the city
this morning and .the exercises will
begin this afternoon at 3:30 at the
court house, the first event, of the af
ternoon being the musical program.
Judge Pritchard will then take the I
floor, speaking on the subject; "Con-]
servation of Manhood."
Anticipating that a large audience]
will desire to hear thia splendid ef
fort, Mr. Iturnett waa yesterday en
gaged in arranging for extra seats to
be placed in the court house an? it
ls hoped that it may bo ncsaiole to
take care of all this ifiernoon.
Anderson people should not. miss
this opportunity to hear- such a gifted
man. Judge Pritchard will apeak at
