a bom?? production entitled "A
A STATESMANLIKE LEGISLATURE,
The Intelligencer desires to commend the session
of the legislature which has Just closed as being
one of real merit. Some of the "awa placed on the
statute books of the State hy this legislature will
live long after the membefe of the legislature have
passed from the stage of action. It was really a
constructive legislature. True, many of the acts
that were passed were not drastic at all. For in
stance the compulsory school attendance law is a
very mild on-:, but tho entering wedge has been
driven and the future will see more effective leg
islation. The law providing for .a State board of
charities and corrections is one of far reaching ef
fect, arid will accomplish much for the criminal and
unfortunate classes of the State. We trust we shall
see the penal institutions of the State placed where
they are in muny of the other States of the union.
Crime, we believe, is a diseuse, and can bu cured if
treated properly. The penitentiary in South Caro
lina has not been curing crime by the usage of the
most advanced ideas in treating criminals. If the
State board of charities do only this they will fully
Justify the passage of the law.
Perhaps the most drastic legislation ever passed
by a State legislature, and the most discussed Just
now in the Stute, ls the passage of tho bills agree
ing upon a bond issue for Grecnvillo and Richland
Counties, without submitting the question to a
vote of tho people of the counties. Ono cannot but
be struck hy the "nerve" of the delegations from
those counties which proposed these bond legues,
und admire their wisdom and foresight. Tl-oro is
some thought that the passage of these bond ! IBU
direct by the legislature was establishing a dan*
gerous precedent, which might one of these days
bo abused. The Anderson delegation felt this way
about it and provided for an election on the bond
isBun for this county. The action of the people nt
the election will demonstrate the wisdom o' this
decision, and wo cannot but believe that thd elec
tion will carry-by an overwhelming majority.
Other matters passed upon by the legislature are
statesmanlike, and the session Just closed was free
from any passion and bitterness. No demagoguery
was shown, and this is thc first legislature to pass
any legislation favorable to tho mill people of the
State, though there have been campaigns waged
by alleged "friends" of the mill people. The crea
tion of the office of special agent to work for the
establishment of textile schools for the benefit of
the mill people ls wise, and will result in much
benefit to this large class of t>-e citizenship of the
The tax reform measure, the reorganization of
the State hospital for the' Insane, and other matters,
nearly ul of which woro proposed by Governor Man
ning, show how much In -sympathy and accord were
the chief executive and the legislature.
"PITY THE PUNY PULPITEER,'*
"Pity the puny pulpiteer who perishes in
platitudes; who aims at nothing and hits it;
who wastes his energies on the glories of the
new Jerusalem or the tiru of old Jerusalem,
the while that he ls diplomatically dumb
about the evils of his own city.
"A cowardly Christian ls an anomaly.
The man who has God with him here and
who expects to be with God hereafter has no
right to the luxury of a white feather."
The above ts from the sayings credit 1 to Dr.
l-.nsdrldth, a member of the "Flying Squadron" of
the prohibition forces, which has been in Columbia
for several days. We fully agree with Dr. Land
; ridth In the Idea that the ministers of this day
should speak out in no uncertain terms of the evils
of today, and not over the sins of the ''early
fathers." Concrete cases are needed to correct
ovils, and The Intelligencer believes that the man
wno teach Christianity and morola from.the pul
pit are the ones to teach the people what ls right
and to adjure them to follow lt. The mlnistter who
ts worth of hearing these days is one who has
honest and fearless convictions and is not afraid
to express them. He must be up to the minute in
modern dsy politics and theory of government, and
filled with the right standards of living, to say
nothing of possessing the principios ot twentieth
century theology, os well as a knowledge of the
history of the past? He will bo heard and heeded,
and will thus Justify his existence.

o SA VS HO ITH NEEDS DIVERSIFICA! ION o
o AND A PROTECTIVE ? A MIFF. o
Editor Constitution: The writer of this article
ls an Indiana editor. I was born in the South, but 1
now live in the north. I have visited every State |
in the South and studied the resources and pos3i- ;
bllitles of this section. I love and admire the peo
ple of the South, and what I here say is prompted
not by political or sectional feelings, but In the
interest of the entire country, and especially the
South. I am a business man a* ".veli as editor,
and my views here are of a business character. I
have made some investments in the South and may
make others, if conditions justify. I have just spent
a few weeks in Florida, where business conditions
aro depressed, as tiley are in Ueorgia, and all over
Mimi's the Matter?
In passing through Atlanta on my way north I
bought a copy of The Constitution. The articles
of Mr. Haden and Mr. Holleman and your editorial
comments on same attracted my attention. Their
subject might properly be called "What's the Mat
ter With the South?"
Both agreo that diversity of crops and more in
tense farming are what is needed. Mr. Haden takes
the rosy view of thc caso and says these good
things ure coming. Mr. Ho'??inan is not so sure of
lt on account of the ignorance cud indifference of
the great bulk of farmers. Every time I visit tho
South I am struck with the anomaly of a great, rich
section of tho country not being able to raise
enough stuff to feed its population!
With millions of acres of grazing lands gbing to
waste you buy your beef and pork in Chicugo and
your butter from Elgin, 111. With the sunshine al
most perpetual, Florida don't raise enough chickens
and eggs to feed tho tourists. Down there where
strawberries bear for five months they sell at from
30 to 40 cents a box, and in my Hoosier State,
where the season is over in ten days, they Bell at
j from 5. to 15 cents a box .
Florida bas gone daft on citrus fruit just as the
cotton States bow down and worship King Cotton.
What the South needs 1B more diversified farm
ing. Why, this section is called the "Truck Patch"
of the nation and yet you ship your canned Iruits
and vegetables from the north. Besides diversity
at crops, more intense and better farming is need
ed. It would be well for all our country, north and
South, to stud" the methods of Belgium, Germany
and Austria Mi?se countries ten acres is a
good sized ft There is another question that
just aa vitally cc /ns the South aa the diversity
of crops. It has in tho past been a political ques
tion, but it should not be, for it is a business ques
tion that should be eliminated from party politics.
And that question is the tariff. I am well aware
what has kept the "South solid" for the democratic
party. It is the negro question. But the South has
settled these local matters In its own way and the
north has not interfered. The issues of tho civil
war are passed, and should be forgotten.) When Hie
boys who wore the blue join In celebrating birthday
of Lee, as they did in Florida last mooth, and the
boys who wore the gray unite in paying tribute to
Lincoln, how foolish for Ulis generaUon to quarrel
and divide over a business proposition that affects
the welfare of the entire naUon! The South needs
protection moro than the north, and the South be
lieves in a protective tarin*.
If she had demanded protection for cotton goods
aa the north did for woolen gooda there would have
.been no "cotton panic" on account of the European
war. How much better would lt be to manu
facture the raw cotton right here at home than to
ship lt abroad and then buy back the finished pro
A lifelong democrat in my home State told me
recently that he had voted for his last low tariff.
He said he voted for lt In 1892 and brought a panic
and again in 1912, and severe depression in busi
I met a prominent business man of Atlanta on
this train last night. He told me the same story.
Some say that our' bod business ia on account of
the war. But the depression was here before the
war began. Foreign wars usually help our trade
and especially do they aid the farmers. With the
exception of wheat all farm products are lower
than before the war, although our. exporta ot these
goods'are above normal.
The writer voted for a protective . tariff. His
State needed tho tariff Just as all the South needs
lt now. Yon need lt more than the north. Then
why let the bogy of negro domination bar the South
from voting for a business policy that will bless tho
trhole naUon and especially its own people You

WHY THIS WAVE OF CRIME I
That a wave of crime seems to have started tn
this community Is to bo deplored. It is unfortunate
that crimea are committed at any time, and in any
place but the serious nature ot those being com
mitted calls for serious consideration. We trust
that there shall be no more of them, and ta order
that the public may bo safeguarded as mach aa
possible, we wocld urge the officials to double their
vigilance and prevent a recurrence if possible to
do so. It ls appalling that any person for any
cause should strike down an old man in the peace
ful pursuit of ali efforts to make an'honest living
as waa the case with Mr. Todd Saturday night. We
trust ?hat Ute culprit shall be hunted down r<ad
P"Hi"b.ed the aarlnusmass of bin crime demanda.
We were getting proud ot the record Anderson
County was beginning to have for law and order,
and we cannot but think that the present Wave of
crime ls tho result of the acUon of only one *>r two
criminals, and that they shall soon be apprehended
and summarily dealt with. There is no excuse nor
justification for such acta as those recently com
mitted, and the sooner we let it be known that pun
ishment will sorely and certainly follow crime,
the fewer crimes will be committed.

Judge Fowler stated Just beforto
leaving Anderson that he had some
recollection of congress having pass
ed a good roads bill some time ego
which provides for the government
putting up so much money for good
roads provided a county- put up so
much. He stated that it is his recol
lection the government will put up
$100,000 . fdr good roads provided a
county puts up an equal ?tat. Judge
Fowler stated that he is ir. favor of
the county securing this mrr.oy pro

not put entirely in the hands ot gov
ernment people. He believes it would
[ be unwise for the government tc have
absolute control ot this metier xor a
number of reasons.
While in Washington Judge Fowler
will make investigations with refer
ence to the bill ot Mr. Aiken's pro
viding for the establishment of anoth
er set of federal court officers in this
State. As generally known, the State
ls already divided into two federal
court districts, the eastern and wes
tern, but. there la but ono set ot offi
cers. Congressman Aiken had a bill
before congress providing tor the
appointment of a second set of federal
Court f mears, but the measure hss
been pigeonholed. Judge Fowler be
liever that this second set ot officers
should he established, as grot good
would accrue for the upper i>art ot
the State. It is announced that Con
gressman Ragsdalc has a plan for get
ting Mr. Aiken'c bill back on calendar,
