i FINK SENTIMENT
Th?! editor of Tho Intelligencer ts in
receipt of u lotter which ls of a per
sonal nut ure hut is so filled with tine
sentiment that he will take the liber
ty to publish il with Hie hope that it
may bo an inspiration to others In
Anderson county. Th? letter is from
J. Mack King, county supervisor of
Anderson county, and reads as fol
"* ? ? Perhaps it will bc of interest
to you to know that I have concluded
arrangements to phire my daughter
again with the institution which is tho
best asset that Anderson county pos
sesses, namely Anderson college.
Unfortunately for the young lady, as
well as myself, site was left mother
less five years ago. and knowing as I
do the importun?e at this day and in
this age of the greatest need, "brain
training," commonly colled "educa
tion," I determined to leave my mark
on tho face of lime hy giving nu edu
cation as far as possible to the family
witli which God luis endowed me.
"Hut I learned long ago about
'ways and means.' When I looked
around I found through your good
olllces thal we had Hie combination
right here, 'made in Anderson.' My
daughter has developed lu many ways
under tho careful tutelage at Ander
son College-physically, intellectually
und ull along thc line, an J I desire to
say here and now to you through you
to others, that Anderson college is
the place for our girls and when we
fail to cooperate with the good peo
ple who are at the head of this in
stitution we are, perhaps innocently,
neglecting that which m the future,
means moro for Anderson county than
all other things combined. Let us go
to work and help this great work by
encouraging our people to send their
girls to this great home institution
and I feel ti>\t in the years to come
we will see the fruit J or our labors in
the educated and refined womanhood
that will praise their parents' good
Judgment for endowing them with
an Anderson college education.'
"I desire thus publicly to express
my thanks to my friends and my last
ing gratitude to the faculty and of
ficers of Anderson college for the in
terest thus shown in my motherless
daughter. Assuring them of my ear
nest desire to be of any service tbat I
possibly can to the institution,
I am most sincerely,
"J. Mack King."
Anderson county annually furnishes
enough giris to colleges in other cit
ies and other states to fill the dormir
tories of Anderson college to. run
ning over. Wo would not be a prose
lyte^ but we would like io auggeBt
timidly to the good people of this
section that Anderson college is no
experiment, but a fixture, a Buperb in
stitution, at once the surprise and the
Joy ot all who love advancement of
education. At the head oC this insti
tution today is a man of. christian
character and courage, or high order
of Intellect and a teacher born. His
great heart Is throbbing with love for
his splendid mission, and the yoting
glrlc of the state who come under bis
care and under the teaching of him
self and associates will bc all the bet
ter In intellect, in development and in
soul n>i In christian womanhood for
having attended Anderson college.
THE ENROLLMENT HEAVY
S. Dean Pearman, chairman of the
county democratic executive commit
tee, stated yesterday that the club
rolls are in coming in. Ho had receiv
ed 18 yesterday, and each club roll
shows nearly if not quite ns many
names as the polling list of two years
In some clubs the enrollment ex
ceeds the number of names on the
polling list of 1912.
Friends of the members of the re
cent state democratic convention
claimed that they needed no defense
dud thai ihv enrollment would be
their vindication. Mr. Pearman says
that the indications are that the to
tal enrollment will be considerably
over 7,600', while the voie last pri
mary was 8,000. tn fact the dlffei
enco may be smaller than that when
all tho lists are in. The above esti
mate ls conservative. -
Governor Blease charged at Green
wood that tho floating gangs of non
resident employes on railroad con
struction work opposed him two year?
ago. The new rules cut inem om.
The anti-administration people
have claimed all the time that' non
residents who moved into ' the state
just before the last primary were per
mitted to vote for. Gov. Blease. Any
such possibility as that ts eliminated,
if anything of the kind aver did oc
Therefore, it appears at present
we emphasize that-for the future,
may causo a revision of opinion
but at this time it appears that the
rules adopted by the last a tato con
vention aro. in the aggregaio sate and'
. fair. They give the opportunity for
5 an election for homefolns, by home
folks, and none hut homorolks.
We trust that the committee in
cheeking up tho lists will bo liberal,

Washington, July 20.-lt is so gen
erally conceded that the decision of
the Interstate commerce commission
on the proposed advance in freight
rates will he adverse to the railroads

themselves are setting any store hy
Unless all indications full, lt pro
mises to be tho moat important ruling|
th? commission has ever made-im
portant in the fact that it will prevent
any large increase in public burdens
by tlie railroads, hut principally im
portant in that it is expected to cause
far reaching reforms in railroad
methods and operations. It ls ex
pected to tell the railroads that they|
must be run upon business princi
ples, for business purposes, and not asl
adjuncts to the stock market, to be|
used for stock manipulation.
The roads, lt ls believed, will be se
verely censured for tonie of their|
practices,, and will be told how they
can obtain Increased revenue by tho j
elimination of special service per
formed for favored shippers. r
The decision, lu fnct, will he largely I
u review of general railroad conditional

bined with advice from the commis-1
sion as to the best method of remedy
ing bad conditions.
Would Scatter Industries.
It is believed that one part of it
will deal especially with the present
concentration of Industries in the lar
ger cl''.es, und will recommend that
these industries be scattered along
the lines in the smaller towns, thus
enabling the railroads to handle their
business without the. congestion, delay
and expense Incidental to city termin
als; aiding tho industries in reducing
their overhead charges and the cost
of their properties, and assisting the
employes of the Industries to lower
tho cost of living and raising Its
standard by placing them in smaller
communistes, where living expenses
are not so high, where fresh air can
be had for them and their families,
and where they can develop the higher
inetinctg of Ufo denied them In crowd
ed city quarters.
Distribution of traffic and Industry
undoubtedly will be one of the main
themes for discussion in the report,
and the carriers and industries will
be urged to co-operate in tills distri
bution for their mutual advantage.
The railroads Teached the conclus
ion weeks ago that the commission
would not grant their request for a 5
per cent horizontal increase in rates,
amounting to more than $50,000,000 a
Repr?sentatives of the carriers |
schooled by railroad attorneys, assert

rocks all over the country and ono

"The Store with a Conscience"
He Says That the Anti-Blease
People Are Badly at Sea On
Editor The Intelligencer: .
In connection with the elimination
caucus called in Columbia for Friday
at noon, there are variais rumors
afloat and many opinions about same.
It is common rumor now that the
gubernatorial race is not the only one
to be considered, though ostensibly so.
There is a very strong sentiment fav
oring the withdrawal by request of
both Jennings and Pollock, and two
reasons are given for this. One is that
it Is thought, since passing .through
the Piedmont, that these candidates
t.re weakening the cause ot Smith, as
the people are becoming aroused over
what they term"double teaming on
ni ea se" and lt lg feared that lt thia
feeling grows that there is likely to
be a "stampede to Ble?s?" by those
not now on his side,- but are beginning
to look upon their m?thode as being
Another reason being 'advanced la
that "Jennings and Pollock's assaults
on the governor's record has done the
work, so as they cannot hope to be
elected lt ls best for the state that
they get out of Smith's, way."
Then there is another rumor to the
effect that "Pollock and Jennings -see
that Blease will be elected and don't
want to be caught In the 'crash, so
their friends are giving them'a chance
to get out gracefully.**
Wo don't know whether any or all
of these rumors are correct, but ope
thing ls certain, whether it material
izes or not there .is an effort being
made to bring about the withdrawal
of one or more of the senatorial can
didates and another'ha? it that even
Smith contemplates withdrawal. |Any
way, it looks as though there will be
a surprise sprung; in tho senatorial
race all right.
