Of a Revival

to keep it guessing, ile said the ad
ministration was in power with a de
finite program of corrective l?gisla
tion, waa ready and determined to go
ahead with that program. During the
pendency of the tariff and currency
bills; he said, business shivered, but
the wus no serious effects. He as
serted that there was no reason to
think thai tb result would be more
si nous ofter tho anti-trust bills were)
"Some people think that tue anti
trust legislation will be postponed."
said tho pr?sident as he advanced a
etep. "Well, it will not be postponed, j
because we are the real friends of
business and are roady to give busi
ness its new constitution of freedom.
"If we stop now there would be
another long period of agitation with
its iexulting dangers to business. But
we ait not going to face that danger,
we are going ahead with our program
now and if the reports I received are
'correct, it will not take us very long
to finish our work "
'.We kuow what wc are doing," paid
the president ; "we purpose to do lt
undei the advice of men who under
stand the business ot the country, and
we know that thc effect ia going to
be exactly what the effect of the cur
rency refoim was, a Fcnse of relief
The president spoke to a group of
Virginia editors at the White House,
but lils ass urances were Intended for
the country. There was every indica
tion that the speech war meant to
be one of the most important of the
Didn't Mention Failure
News of the failure of H. B. Ciaflln
Company, in New York; had reached
the White House earlier in the day,
but thc pres ident did not mention it.
"I think it appropriate, in receiving
you," the president satd, "to say just
a word or two in assistance of your
Judgment about thc existing condit
ions. You aro largely responsible for
thc state of public opinion. You tur
ill : li the public with Information, and
in your editorials; you furnish it with !
thc interpretation of that informa
tion. We are in the presence of a
business situation which is variously j
Interpreted. Herc in Washington,
through instrumentalities that are j
at our disposal and through a corres
pondence which comee in to us from
all parts of thc nation we perhaps in j
a position to judge of the actual con- i
ditton of business better than those
can judge who are at any other single
point of the country; and I want Jo
say to you, that ac a matter of fact,
tho signs of very strong business re
vival are becoming more and more
evident from day to day.
"I want to suggest this to you.
Business har. been in a feverish con
dition in this country for more than
ten years; 1 will not stop to point out
the timo at which it began to bc ap
prehensive, but during more than len
years business has been the object of
sharp criticism in the United States
criticism growing in volume and In
particularity and ns a natural con
sequence, business has grown more
and more anxious.
Bm?ncss lb Fear
"Business men 'have,acted as some
men do who fear they will have to
undergo au operation, nnd who are not
sure that, when they get on the table
the operation will not be a capital op
eration. As a matter of'fact, as the
diagnosis has pronounced, it has be
come 4hore and moro evident that no
capital operation was necessary; that
at the most, a minor operation was
necessary to remove admitted distemp
ers and evl'G.
"The treatment is to be constitu
tional, rather than surgical, affecting
habits of life and action, which have
been hurtful. For all hands it is ad
mitted, that there are processes of
business in this country which ought
to be corrected; but the correction baa
been postponed and* in proportion
to the postponmont the fever has In
creased-rthe fever of apprehension,
j "There is. nothing more fatal to
business ti.-ti to be kept guessing
from month to month and from year
to year whether something serious is
going to happen to tt or not and what
(n particular is going tb happen to it
if anything does. It is impossible to
forecast the prospects bf any line of
business unless you know what the
year ls-going to bring forth. Nothing
ls more unfair, nothing bbs been de
clared by business men to bo more
harmful, than to keep them guessing.
"The guessing went ob, the utr was
full ot Interrogation points for ten
years and more. Thea came an ad
ministration which for the first timo
had a definite program of construc
tive correction;'; .not of destructive
correction,' but of a constructive cor
rection of an admitted evil-a clear
program, .disclosed 80 far Ss pOSFtblo
in ? general program. In its par
ticulars as well as-du Its general fea
tures. And the administration pro
ceeded to carry. ont this program.
. "First, tkere was a tariff, hud bus
iness shivered. 'We don't" likb to go
On in; tho water looks cold;' hut when
the tariff had beeb passed. lt waa
found that the readjustment was pos
sible without any serious disturbance
whatever. So that men said with a
sense bf . relief, ?well, ive are gldd to
get that behind us, and lt wasn't so
bad after all.' "? \ ...
"Then came tbe vtirroncy reform:
Ybu remember with wast resistance,
with what cr it lc IM in. With what syste
matic holding bock, a large body ot
bankers lb this cbunfry met tbe pro-,
posais of reform, abd you know bow,
Immediately after its passage, they
recognized Hs benefit, and its benth
cence abd bow ever' rM?ee the passage
oi that reform, bankers throughout the
United Slates havo been congratulat
ing themselves that-it was possible to
carry this great reform on sen Llb lc
and roi ld lines.
"Then wo advanced to the trust pro
gram and SgSlb the rame dread, the
same lie?ltattoh,, the (rame Urgency
that the thing should be posponed.
It will hot be.postponed; and it will
not be postponed because we are the
friends of business. We kt?ow what
w$ afe doing; we propose tb do lt
under thc advice, for we baye been
fortunate cnuugh to obtain tho advice
of men who understand the business
of the country, and wc know that the
effect ia going to he exactly what the
effect of Hie currency reform wan. a
sense of reJlef and of recurity.
"Uecuuse when the program is fln
irhed, it is finished; the interrogation
points are rubbed off the elate; busi
ness lr given ltr# constitution of free
dom und it is hidilen go forward under
that constitution. And Just so soon
ar it getp the feave>and freedom there
will be u boom in this country such ns
was never witnessed In the United
"I. as a friend of business and a ser
vant of the country, would not dare
r*,op in tlits program and bring on
another long period of agitation. Ag
itation longer continued, would he fa
tal to business in this country, und
if this program is delayed, there will
come agltatiou with every letter in j
the word a capital letter. The choice
IF a sober, ot'uslble program now com
pleted, or months upon months of ad
ditional conjecture abd danger.
"I. for one. could not ask this
country to excuse a policy which sub
jected bUBinesp to longer continued
agitation nnd uncertainty; and tbere
foie. I am sui" that lt ls beginning
to be evident that a constructive pro
gram at last ls not only proposed,
but completed, and that when lt ls
completed, business can get and will
get what lt can get lb no other way
-rest, recuperation and successful
.'It ls a matter of conscience, as well
as a matter of large public policy to
do what this congress, I am now cer
tain ip going to do, finish the pro
gram. And I do not think that lt is
going to take a very long time. I
believe that the temperature of UIORC
engaged in this great thing is ad
mirable, that, the various elements
sometimes in antagonism in the con
gress of the (Tn I ted States are now
di awing together, and that we shall
witness an early statesmanlike re
sult for which we shall all hav?'abun
diint reason to be thankful."
During the day the president bad re
ceived a letter signed by Chump
Clark, of the Hoare, aud all Dem
ocratic representative from Missouri,
pledging their support in his cam
paign for anti-trust legislation, nnd
promising they would remain in
Washington until the program <vas fin
ished. He replied expressing bis
thanks und appreciation.

The people of Donalds arc taking
renewed Interest in the proposition to

.Greenwood citizen stated this morn
lng\ that ono of the leading men of
the neighboring town In Abbeville
t minty told him a. few days ugo that
his people were anxious to have an
election and lie believed that if Green
wood gave the needed encouragement
the question of annexation wauht
soon be settled. It Is understood that
practically every man In the Don
alds section is in favor of coming into
Greenwood county. The matter wss
consid?reos some month.- ago, but at |
that time no definite steps were taken
toward calling an election. No
however, It is staled that the citi
zens of Donalds and adjoining terri
tory are anxious thst some steps be
taken at once to get the plan in legal
Donalds and the territory' In favor
of coming into Greenwood county will
give Greenwood a very prosperous

When the Chamber of Commerce
