Th? position of editor of any news
paper I? one of great responsibility, Es
pecially ls this tru<; when the newspa
per is issued daily in u city and county
. ?nell as Anderson. Directing the ut
terances of this page Is a task from
which one ?nay well shrink, and this ls
1 particularly true when following BO
. gifted and fluent a writer as Col.
I Hunks, who has given much thought
S to estuhli-hing the Daily Intelligencer.
Hut since this duty has been pluced
upon me. I HIIUII endeavor to discharge
i it with ail my soul. The readers who
-.hall dully scan these columns may not
- lind here many brilliant thoughts
clothed in faultless English, but they
will lind the honest convictions of one
, whose every thought shall be for the
5 uphuildlug of a bigger and purer city
a richer and huppier county, a proud
D er and more patriotic states. Thie pur
pose will underlie what shall here ot
m written, and by lt I wish tn be judged.
Yes, I shall make mistakes-who doe;
not .' I shall fall far short of my ideals
1 In many things, because I am human.
J You, dear reader, shall do likewise ant
, for the same reason. So let us not cen
, eure each other too severely.
3 Of course we shall not agree on al
' questions, but let our disagreement:
', bo honeHt differences of opinion,
may say thu war in Europe will soot
? be over; you may say lt will last fo
months', perhaps years. I shall gran
you the right to your thoughts; yo
should do the same for me. You hav
a right to think as you please-pre
vided you THINK; I have the sam
right. So why fall o:tt about UT
Anderson county is a great count:
In a great section of th ; State. He
resources and her industries are vat
led and m^ay-Tht, Int~l!igence
.uanda for the development of thesi
Her people are true, brave and loyi
to what they believe is right-The IE
telllgencer would have them remal
true, brave and loyal to the right. He
people are as a rule law abiding-Th
Intelligencer would create respect fe
all law. Indeed* The Intelligence
would clasp hands with every upllfi
lng agency in this section and bel
them accomplish their good work.
Is there not enough work to d
building up our city, county and Sta)
to keep us too busy to find fault wit
another, too busy to search for fault
. and, too busy to pry .for motives ?hi
ure impure? Let ns forget factions
' Ism and unite all our'?nergies to brin
?Teat things to pass here and no?
That were a man's tusk. Let us ceat
looking on the dark vida and try to sc
the silver lining to th* clouds. Plum
grow and thrive beat; only In the pui
sunlight-Are we not human planta?
The Intelligencer would work fe
bettering the condition of every farmc
and laboring man. Thia newspape
realizes that the prosperity and happ
neas of every class of our cltlzensh
depends upon the prosperity and ha)
pinesa ot every other class. If M:
farmer is prosperous, the merehan
the business man, the protessloni
class, the banks-all are prosperoui
This close Interdependence of all wi
never so forcefully illustrated as hf
been done by this war In Europe. Sut
being true, then, we'need to stand.t
i geth?->r- , Therefore. The Intelligence
. deplores the tendency of spino pera'ii
to array one class against another at
to keep alive and faa into flame di
- ferencea of opinion so as to accompli!
this end .
Believing that the stability of our ti
sti tut lon? dependa upon an educat
, and enlightened cltlsenahlp, The Int?
llgencer would stand for education
all the children of every commuait
No enlightened people can long !
fooled or enslaved, nor can they be tl
prey of the vicious and avaricious. A
I deraon county has a fine system
schools, both ci.y and county, ai
these are indeed a pride to aM her pe
I pie. The Intelligencer would s
? j them grow and spread wide their 1
I A word personal: Eleven mont

he bas seen of the life, tbe cnstoi
and the ideals of the people. N<
he. baa heen selected to stand as t
champion of tho people who hs
thus shown him courtesies and fries
V ships. He has chosen Anderson
I bis home, a place In which to live a
rear hts children, a place where
hopes they may live and . make th
hornea. He, therefore, would like

I on tba farm, his sympathies are tari

BUSINESS AS I'SrAL
Among the best discussions of the
war in Europe, and the most opti
mistic may be mentioned those edi
torials on the subject appearing in
tho Charleston News and Courier. I
The following ia worth careful
John Hull knows that there are
other perils as serious au those with
which the Mailed Fhn of tho KalBer
threatens him. He knows, for in
stance, that no matter what happens,
he must keep his business going. Al
financial panic or a general budnee* |
collapse in the British Isles would be
more disastrous than a defeat of the
British army lu France. It would do
more to paralyze Englands resistance
to her enemies than anothe. success
ful submarine attack upon the British
fleet. So John Hull la taking the
greatest care to keep his business go
ing in spite of the war, and he is pur
posely keeping enough men at home
to run the shops in his absence.
"Business aa usual" has become a
sort of slogan throughout the British
Isles; and Reginald Arkell has made
this .slogun' the title of aome versos
which are'recited each evening at
the Strand Theatre, before the cur
tain goes up, by Mr. Mattheson Lang,
the actor. As Mr. Arkell puts it.
John Bull on leaving his shop to go
to the :\zx
"wrote on his window a message for
all to read,
'Business conducted as usual, while
Left his Missus and kiddies to carry
the business on;
Sailed for the sound of the shooting
Oood bye, and God bless you,
ft ?ci ve I j j / , . sj
ildPhe "bUaMnesW" as usual movement"
if one may} call lt such, ??ems to be
a success and there is no s.-gn of com
mercial collapse in tile British Isles,
A Charl es toni an recently returned
from Englujd, was struol*' with tho
quiet optimism of the British people:
regarding the commercial crisis with
which* they are confronted and was j
much impressed by tho manner in
which business In general, In London
and throughout the British Isles, ha?
withstood the shook ot war . The ut?
most care on the part of the Govern
ment to provide against e? commercial
collapse would not have-availed if
the Government had been in dealing
With ? people panicky by nature and
?ubj?ct to?utifon alarms. If an lo
b?rent optimism and a determination
to make tno best of things Is keeping
British business on ad even keel, and
tiding lt successfully through the
worrt storm lt has ever experienced,
the. ?ame spirit ought to have an even
better effect here in this country
wher th? conditions making for de
pression are not anything like as
grave of. ss difficult.
Wo p. ved a "business as usual"
movement over here too. We could
use at present a good deal larger
quantity..or optimism than is appar
ent among us Just now. The way to
make 'fcard .times worse k to talk
about them' until they get on the
h?rve?'.'' 'Oti? way to Improve them ls
to'recognise dearly that they cap be
improve*!. If England and the ?abe
thing iff probably true of Germany*
has kept going ?Imply because her
people refused to lose hope or heart"
in ibo face of conditions fer worse
than those which confront U3. lt will'
bo Rt.-ange indeed it,the. samo .spirit
..nnot help\ us ?yerconw the t obsta*
; !<?s which: seem to threaten our well
teing. ' Our incentive ls all the great
er, because w? know that this period
of stress ts certainly going to be fol
lowed by a period of unexampled
The British motto. "Business condi
tions aa usual while alterations pro
ceed", ought to be adopted and lived
up to by us with all the better spirit
because it ls as sure as anything can
oe that, when the alterations over
our business ls going to be better
than it has been before.**
