jr STICK TO roon MAN
This paper lias heretofore uttered
it H appeal tor a compulsory uttend
atii'i' law. Especially tor a loin! op
tion from which can ho given a trial
lt would harm no one and might get
into the public schools hundreds of
unfortunate little fellows who other
wise would in- denied the privilegia
of having their minds expanded.
.Mr. E. il. IJIake, of Greenwood, who
bas made a clone study of tills prop
osition, writes The Intelligencer that
those who. through honest conviction,
have opposed compulsory school at
tendance in South Carolina, have ov
erlooked the Injustice that is done
the working man and especially the
cotton mill worker by the absence of
such a law.
"Nearly all the slules," writes Mr.
Blake, "including North Carolina,
Tennessee and other southern stutes,
i ave seen die need and passed com
pulsory attendance laws. Time will
no' wait on children in South Curo
lina growing up in ignorance. How
loi g munt these lielpleHH children
w iit on South Carolina?"
A man who describes himself as a
cotton mill operative pleads for com
pulsory education as follows, in a
letter to The Helton Journal recent
ly:
"It seems to the average man work
ing to better his condition, that the
compulsory education bill would have
been a great help. Had lt been pass
ed, lt would then force the parent to
give his child ut least an elementary
education, lt seems inconsistent to
say to the cotton mill parent, you
must not work your boyB or girls un
til a certain nge and then fail to en
courage liim to send the boy or girl
to school u stipulated time.
"Give us compulsory education and
in a very short while you will per
ceive our condition greatly Improv
ed from an educational standpoint.
We realize education is the basis for
better conditions In our community,
and the foundation of a more stable
government, or one more constructive
at least. Compulsory education will
force better school facilities, thereby
giving more advantages for huvlng
and making better citizenship.
"The cheap politician says we are
not ready for it and stops right there.
Wonder why we are not ready for bet
ter citizenship? Will some of those
opposed to the bill explain the view
they entertain, and tell how long it
will be until we are ready for it? Also
tell us how to prepare for Its pas
sage? Some are using the poor ne
gro as an argument. They fail to
know that we read and are keeping
up with the conditions as they really
exist, or else they are not keeping
up with the conditions of the present
day. Statistics, as they are compiled
by our state superintendent of edu
cation, say that there are more ne
gro children In school in our state
than whites. So if the negro goes
ahead of us along these lines we can
blame no one but ourselves for our
condition."
Jl'DGK EMORY SPEER
The report of the congressional
committee that Investigated the con
duct of Judge Spoer is one of the
most amusing things we have ever
seen. It proves more nearly than any
thing else In recent months that there
should be somo kind of recall of
judges. Some recent decisions In
this state show clearly that the Ju
diciary of South Carolina should have
some string to it.
As to Judge Speer, the committee,
In stating* that he could not be im
peached, made this amusing declara
tion: .
"An examination of the record
shows the fact that Judge Speer
ascertained the limit to which he
go before liability to impeach
ment or official misconduct would
accrue and went as close to the
line as safety would permit," says
the report.
"The committee Ands that the
record presents a series of legal
oppressions and an abuse of Ju
dicial discretion, which demand
criticism and condemnation. These
hang as a pretentious cloud over
his court, impairing his useful
' 'Pess, impeding the admtnlstra
? Hon of justice and endangering
the Integrity of American Institu
tions."
It seems to us that the very fact
that Judge Speer with intent' used
his office arbitrarily right up to the
point of Impeachment ls the mast
convincing' argument that he should
be impeached. *

GEORGIA TEXTILES.
The report of the Georgia commis
sioner of commerce and labor, H. M.
Stanley, ls very interesting. Among
other things it shows that there are
145 cotton mills In Georgia, using
288,100,188 pounds of cotton a year
and turning out products valued at
$82,G73,000. In the cotton, woolen
and knitting mills the operatives num
ber 14,7771 There are 66 operatives
undo: ,12 years old; 3.074 from 14 to
18 ye rs, and over 18 years. l?,452. -
HE WA HE THE MEHDLEIiK
There ?K H? much oT hysteria and ol
perversion in Hi's?' days that it is
dilticult tu arrive al winn is thu
truth. Kor instance, in Hie matter of
child labor in the cotton mills. The
editor o? the The Intelligencer was
fortune to he permitted to assist
in getting the first hill through the
South Carolina legislature. lt was
introduced Col. J. Q. Marshall, and
championed hy the late N. tl. Gon
zales. These two men did more for
the laboring classes of the State than
any other dozen men in the last 26
years. Both have passed to their re
ward.
A law to protect children from
heart lens parents who would force
them to work in the mills wus a ne
cosslty and ls yet. Hut there should
he some com mon sense displayed in
Hie mutter. When Hie child labor law
was first passed, it came ill response
to the appeal from the laboring peo
ple themselves, and the mill man
agers offered no objection except to
state that along with this law there
should be a compulsory education
law to keep idle children off the
streets and out of mischief. And
right there ls wherein rose the ob
jection to the compulsory attendance
law coming from politicians who did
not want it merely because the mill
managers did.
At thc time of the enacting of the
law, there was a widespread public
sentiment in its favor and public de
nium! for lt, but there In no great dis
satisfaction at present, that we can
hear of. Occasionally we hear that
the law ls not being enforced, and
that there has been some criticism of
the governor of the state. We wish
to say that this In unfair to him as
the enforcement of this law ls not
placed In his hands, although if viola
tions were brought to his attention,
he might get in behind the loafers
who are letting it go on.
We believe that the mill managers
are the best friends of the mill peo
ple. Even if they were ?ol so from
a humanitarian standpoint, they
should be from a sta alnoint of econ
omy-and they are from both stand
points. There are men in the manu
facturing business whose minda are
no greater than their great hearts, and
their sympathies are broad as the
field of their endeavors.
Wc do not believe rhu the mills
of the state are employing any con
siderable number of children. And
we have visited some of the mills and
our observation ls that what chil
dren are to be seen, have light em
ployment, get pretty fair wages, aro
treated nicely, have lots of fun In
the mill and outside, and are a greut
deal less driven with labor chan are
hundreds of chore boys on tho farms.
We believe that the mill managers do
more charity voluntarily tj>n all of
the charitable societies of 'he coun
try, outside of that grand institution,
the Salvation Army.
And this leads to thc conclusion
The great and admirable movement
with reference to preventing the la
bor of children In'mines and factories
is being ridden by high salaried of
ficials whose business is to agitate.
We have read statements and pub
lications and even books from them
that are grossly and grotesquely false.
How much of this agitation ir. caus
ed by the mills of New England und
the enemies of the contented labor of
the South we do not know. Wo know
somo of the workers in this neld
and believe them to be sincere, though
highly theoretical and slightly fan
atical. We believe In remedial laws
but we do not believe that legislation
should be forced upon industries when
lt ls not needed.
What would the South be today if
lt were not for our textile industries?
How many of today can remember
before the day of creation of inter
est in the building of manufacturier?
AU such know that but for the mills
and their payrolls the South would
today be but little better off thun
lt was at the close ot the war, ex
cept agriculturally. The mills are
not entirely patriotic or benevolent or
beniftcent, but they do more for their
employes than the same number of
employes in any other class of la
bor get.
The mill people are becoming an edu
cated, proud and ambitious people.
They are among our best citizenship.
They are uot in need ot paternalistic
or rather patronizing laws to the ex
tent that politicians and paid agita
tors would canse the people to think.
Occasionally there is need for legis
lation in thc case oi some trifling pa
rent, but such coses may be found
on the farms as well as in the mills.
Finally, we suggest, beware of
meddlers. If there are wrongs, let
them be pointed out. and corrected.
But let the mill managers and their
help alone, and we believe that they
will get together work out the solution
of all vexing questions; Otherwise,
some day adverse and fool legislation
may stop the spindles and the con
sumer will feel the effect of the high
coat of idleness.

COMMITTEE UNDECIDED
The Senate Judiciary Trio Worried
For Kepari On Clayton Bill.
Washington, Juno 24.-After ten
days consid?r?t lon of thc Clayton anti
trust bill, passed by the house, the
senate judiciary committee tonight ap
parently was no nearer a conclusion
as to what it shall report to the sen
ate than it was the ?lay it took ita
first look at the measure.
.Members of the committee have
found little common ground for pro
hibition of Interlocking directorates
und holding companies, and they have
not finally agreed on how to prevent
price fixing. The so-culled labor sec
tions have led to endless urguraents.
The prospects for un early agreement,
some members of the committee say.
ls not encouraging and sentiment
ugatnst reporting any such treasure
ut this time is growing.
A new complication in the situation
came tonight when Senator Cummins
offered five propositions which he
ashed the judiciary committee to ap
prove and report as amendments to
the federal trade commission bill.
These amendements would make In
terlocking directorates and holding
companies among railroads or other
corporations unlawful where they re
strain commerce, und would give the
trude commifcBion or the interstate
commerce commission power to deter
mine when they restruin commerce.
There was talk ugaln today about
au effort to have the president agree
to limit the amount of anti-trust leg
islation at this session.

HUGE LAND PURCHASES
Government Will Acquire Preserres
in Several Southern States.
We sh ingot n, June 24.-The Nation
al forest reservation commission to
day approved for purchase by the gov
ernment ? number of tracts in Virgin
ia, West Virginia, Tennessee, North
Carolina, South Carolina uid Georgia,
totalling more than 27,000 acres.
About 13,600 acres are In North Caro
line, principally in the Mount Mitchell
region, about 7,000 acres in Tennessee
and 6,000 ae>es in West Virginia.
This will ' conclude the purchases
for the fiscal year closing June 30,
1914, during which the areas approved
for purchase have totaled nearly
400,000 acres. The lands selected for
acquisition by the 'government for
national forest purposes in the east
since the purchase policy was inau
gurated in 1910 now total 1,105,000
acres, having a purchase price of 95,
560.000.
One of the best tracts, from a tim
ber standpoint, that the commission
ever haa concluded to buy, contains
more than 7,000 acres and ls In the
Mount Mitchell region, North Caro
lina. Its purchase waa decided on
today. It averaged more than 6,000
feet of saw timber and other producta
per acre. All the tracts adjoin or
lie near lands previously acquired,
under the general policy, by which
national forests of good size are be
ing built up in the eastern mountains
through successive purchases.
ORGANIZATION" DELATED
Will Take One Month Longer Than
Expected to Start Reserve Ranks.
Washington, June 24.-Although
August 1 ls the date originally set by
treasury department officials for or
ganization of the Federal reserve
banks, lt now seems likely that the
organization will be not earlier than
September 1. The senate's delay in
the confirmation of members of tbe
Federal reserve board and delay lp
the choice of directora for the reserve
bank? will defeat the plan to open on
August 1.
The organisation committee now ls
busily engaged in compiling lists
of nominations for directorships tn
the twelve reserve banks. After the
complete list haa been complied it
will be submitted to electors named
by all member banks. These electors
muBt cast their bail?te for directors
within fifteen days after receipt by
them of the Hst of nominees. Many
of the member banks are situated so
remotely that it will take more than a
month to complete the election of the
Hst that has been mased. /

IS FOn RIDDLE
German Political Experts Have
So Far Been Unable To An
swer Conundrum
(Hy Associated Press)
Berlin, June 4.- The action of the
government in ?losing the Reichstag
instead of adjourning it, has furnish
ed a conundrum which the political
experts have not yet been able to an
swer. The government's object is not
known, and its action is wondered at
the more because it meant the extinc
tion of numerous pending measures
desired by the government, most of
which were certain to be passed, on
all which must hard work had been
done. Equally mysterous was the
government's covert threat to dissolve
the Reichstag, making new elections
necessary ,if it adopted, as it seemed
for a time likely to do, a Socialist
measure providing an increase in pay (
of $24 yearly for certain postomc?*
employees. Even the newspapers
friendly to the government ridiculed
the Idea of going to the people on ah'
issue so trivial.
Foremost among the measures
thrown into the waste-basket by the
closing of the Reichstag was the pe
troleum. Others to suffer the same
fate were the measures to regulate
bookkeeping, to define the rights and
duties of aviators, to establish a ju
venile court, to sharpen the laws
against "filth in word and picture,"
to regula Sunday employment, to es
tablish a colonial court, to amend the
business law, the new excise bill, and
many others. Against this list of un
completed work the accomplishments
of the late Reichstag are very small.
So long as lt had to deal with broad
national questions, such as the arr
mament and taxation bills, where the
non-Socialist parties were united
against the Socialists, the work went
ahead smoothly, but as soon aa these
were out of the way, shifting allian
ces of factions prevented any real
work from beir?g accomplished.
Not all the" me for the little done
dur inf * salon rests upon the
Kele' inarchical a paper
as . JUE RUNDSCHAU
sharply the government's
"doctrinariai passing the bounds
nf the permissible," and its "stubborn
ness." It declares also that from the
first there was a lack of Intelligent
direction of affairs on the side of the
government. It is also a fact that
the ministers of various departments
on many occosions failed to show the
fact necessary for dealing with the
representatives of the people, ? ad on
I more than one occasion made rnfortu
I nate blunders.
Another source of the Reichstag's
weakness was- the presidency, Herr
Kaempf, the chief presiding officer,
is an estimable and able man, but
even his own party-the Progressives
or Radicals-were not satisfied with
his conduct of the affairs of the house.
He exhibited a lack of resolution and
decisiveness fatal for the presiding,
officer of a legislative body. It . ls,
most unlikely that he will be mention
ed as a candidate for the office when
the newReichBtag, which will convene
in the autumn, elects Its president
and two vice presidents. Conjecture
haa it that the next session's presi
dent ls likely to be a member ot the
Clerical, or Center party.
NEGROES GET SCHOOLING

Editor The Intelligencer:
Sixteen negroes appeared: before the
State Board of Medical Examiners ot
South Carolina in Columbia, June 9

cine in this state. For the same ex
amination 68 whites appia:ed.

portunity for education in South Caro
lina, one negro seok3 to euter this
most ?earned and skilled profession to
only four and one-fourth whites who

Here is part of what a Southerner,
Shay N. White, now superintendent of
public* instruction of the state of New
Mexico, says favoring compulsory edu>
cal'on:
'I have l"Med the law thoroughly,
first, as u county superintendent for
six yeats and t.ow as state superin
tendent for two aud one-half years,
and I am full convinced that any state

such a law. It ought nol to be neces
sary, but th?-re ls always a need for
lt for a cortuln pei cea tage of the peo
ple. Wo want to have our law amend
ed, so thal thc ciiupi'Tcory age will be
7 to 16 years, ir.stead or 7 to 14 years,

er r.iyself. 1 think the law would un
doubtedly help the tsr.se of education
In your state." . .
