Just huw milch support should bc given by the
public to a newspaper, ls a question which ls now
claiming thc attention of a number of towns and
cities in the country. Several newspapers have
been forced to reduce the size of I heir sheets and
ure trying to retrench au as to make receipts and
expenditures come so close together UH to get on
speuklng terms aga in. The Lancaster News has
been forced to cut to a four page size, and retrench
in every way possible. The News is one of the
best and cleanest newspapers published in the
State, nnd atty curtailment of the service given ls
a distinct lush to the community. Lancaster will
lose us much by allowing such a thing to happen as
will The News.
Suppose, for Instance, that the business people
of Greenville ehould not support the Greenville
News, and lt was forced to suspend or to reduce the
frequency of its Issue, would it not be a bigger
loss to Greenville UH n city, and to Hu business in
terests of the city, than to the owners of The Newa?
Greenville is known far and near on account of
The News, and the remark has been made often
that Greenville should be proud of Its morning
newspaper. Thin ls true, and It speaks well for the
city that so splendid a newspuper ls so liberally
supported by the business men of Greenville.
What is true of Greenville is equally true of Green
wood, and wo have seldom seen a city whose busi
ness men are so liberal as those in Greenwood In
thc matter of advertising. So lt ts with all the
cities-Spartanburg, Columbia. Charleston and An
For Instance, whut would be thought of Anderson
If The Intelligencer were not to receive enough
support from the people of Anderson and the coun
ty to continue to make its daily visits, spreading
broudcast and wholesale the superiority of The
Electric City? Every newspaper ls or should be
proud of Its city. The converse is equally true,
every city should be proud of its newspaper.
Speaking of The Lancaster News, The Rock Hill
'The Lancaster News ls retrenching, having
reduced to four pages in size. That looks
bad for Colonel Leroy Springs' town. When
ever the business men of a town or city
force a newspaper to reduce its size, il is in
controvertible evidence of the fact that there
is something wrong with the place where
that newspaper ls published. If business is
so bad in Lancaster that all the business men
have been forced to quit advertising, there Is
certainly something radically wrong over
there. If the business men of the place
.simply have an attack of cold feet brought on
by the "war In Yurrup." they ought to come
over to Rock HJ11 In a body and see u town
that has recovered from Its war scare.
CAN PUSH COTTON OFF THE HOARDS.
"The only crop which has been tried In South
Carolina that can pusb cotton off the boards ls
aKaira," ts the way Agriculturist A. G. Smith puta
lt. He went on the say that tina is true in York
County where the farmers think so much of grow
ing alfalfa that they have an expert employed for
his full timo teaching the art of growing alfalfa.
"It is not uncommon for a farmer to make $60 per
acre net on his alfalfa, and at a small coat aa com
pared with' cotton," continued Mr. Smith.
if auch good rc8uits are being achieved in York
County, why cannot the same thing be done In An
derson County? There are a number of farmers In
this county who are growing alfalfa, and The In
telligencer would be glad to publish tho exper
iences these have had with the crop. Can Ander
son County not grow as good alfalfa hay as any
county. In the State, and lt is needed. We haye re
cently noted several car loads of western hay being
unloaded in this city. Until this kind of agricul
tural suicido is stopped, there will be cries of hard
times in Anderson County and in the Piedmont sec
tion. Let ns raise ali we need for food for man and
beast In this county, and a good start can be made
by growing enough alfalfa hay to take the place of
the western bay shipped Into this county.
CAPT. CHAS. PETTY.
The death at an early hour this morning of Capt.
Charles Petty, Confederate veteran, newspaper
man and beloved fellow citizen casts a gloom over
the city ot Spartanburg where he had spent bia
life. While he had been In falling health the past
few weeks lt was not generally known that his ill
ness was believed to be of a critical nature and the
announcement of his death comes therefore aa a
very great shock.
Captain Petty waa the dean of South Carolina
Journalism. He had been connected with local
newspapers for a period of many years. Up until
aome ten days ago he contributed regularly to the
columns of The Journal. He waa especially In
terested in the Sunday school lessons which he
prepared for this paper, abd whenever be was Bick
would prepare thia feature even though he was un
able to do any other work.
Capt. Petty has always taken a keen interest in
>ubllc affairs and has always stoutly defended the
principles of right government. He bad the cour
age of his convictions, ever daring to speak out
in the interest of right.
The Journal mourne the death ot Capt. Petty in
common with thousands ot people ot Spartanburg
nhd South Carolinians. We shall cherish his mem

It is assumed by Home that merely beeuuftc the

that Governor Manning will prejudge any ease,
lie must have the truth before he netti. *
lt is not merely ?t matter of getting these in
dividuals out of office. The charges against them
affect their moral reputation and standing. These
churges are not to be handled lightly, not to be
permitted to rest without proof, and the governor
of the State should not place upon the name of any
citizen the stigma of degenerate-unless proof be

WIE AB EDISON OBI BUSINESS.
We wish that the business men of the country
..oul?l take a lesson in optimism from the wizard
Edison. A few weeks ugo his big factory was burn
ed and he at once set about rebuilding it, although
at. his age, 68 years, he would have been excusable
if he had sahl "Well. I am getting too old now to
bother with these things, und I am not going to
attempt to rebuild." Hut this is not Edison's way.
He say.s he still has seventeen years of usefulness,
and that he will accomplish much In this time. So
be is rebuilding his factory, and spreading op
timism. He remarks upon the business depression,
and the fanaticism of business men who are afraid
of their shadows these days are worth.studying and
As applied to local conditions, we wonder if there
are any of the kind of men Edison describes in An- :
dcrson-the Electric City? Are there not too <
many of us who sit down and weep because "things <
are not going right." when we should be hustling '
to make them go right? Is there any real cause
for all this hard times talk we are so fond of In
dulging these days? Let the business community
brace up and get busy DOING things. We must
do this or suffer the consequences.
But, let us see what Edison says:
"We've had some things on hand of late.
They were things I wanted to move rapidly,
and I went to a lot of men I've done business !
with for years. But no, they^ wouldn't do
business. You never naw such a hopeless lot
of men. They had no decision, no initiative.
They couldn't make up their minds to do
anything, or let anybody else do anything.
Nobody had any nerve lett. And that's too
bad. These men ought to be building pew
factories and branch railroads and stirring
things up generally. ;'-e '. .
* "It's in the business slr of tiri? entire coun
try, this obsession. I told my wife the other
day that If she noticed anything unusual
about me sbo should let me.know at once. "
I don't want to get into this mood."
That's the worst thing about business de
pression. It's mostly "psychological." there's
no getting around that. Every business man
who yields to despondency drags others
lows with Mm. The bines are infections.
But, fortunately, optimism ls lust ss infec
tious, once lt gets fairly started', and present
signs Indicate that there will,be an epidemic
of that before the year is ?mu li older.
