SOUTH CAROLINA'S LOSS.
The people of South Carolina are
accustomed by now to hear the cry
ot hard times, and it seems to have
gotten chronic In some sections and
by some people. Yet In spite of this
cry, and'we do bot admit that lt has
any foundation In fact; there seems to
have bee no falling off in the amount
of booze consumed in the State as
complied In the report of the total
sales of liquors In the fifteen dispen
sary counties for the mohth of March.
According to thia * report there was j
sold almost- a quarter 1 of a mllH?h :
dollars worth of the useless st or,'
kept up for a year', of three million
Anderson County ls to be congrat
ulated that there was not any ot thu
wholesale waste In thlB county, and
thc businesses whlth are legitimate
are that much better off. iSuppose
that Ote grocers, the1 dry goods mer
chants, the shoe leaders, and other
merchants, to ssy nothing of the
banks, ba? been blt io the tuns of a
balf hundred thousand*'of dollars,
would lt not be felt?' Tho Intelli
gencer has been condemned, we are:
told, by certain Interests In and
around ' Anderson because we have
had th? temerity to stand for the
abolition ot the sale of this damnable
stuff, and to preach a reasonable
'.?mperance for Ote people, trying to
dhow them thc evil effect following
the drink habit. The editor bf The
Intelligencer has not feared the per
manent effects of 'such criticism, how
ever, for we kuew we had right on
our aide, and the man who wishes to
fall out with us because we wish to
save the people from such loss aa ls
shown In this financial report ls wel
come to his opinion. We have seen
too much of Ute evil effects ot liquor
drinking, even in prohibition Ander
son, to remain silent and thereby ac
quiesce In Its continuance. It there
were any excuse for lt, abd lt tao
people were the recipients of any
benefits from ltd use. there would be
some reason for the traffic by legal
means or otherwise, but when .dis
grace, shame, loss of honor and man
hood* pre the only results following,
then jigs desire to be heard In opposi
tion to tho traffic. And we are thank
ful ever/ day we live that lt brings
us plat much nearer to Nat lon-wide
prohibition of the ?ale or manufac*
turo of Intoxicating dffink.

enjoyable affair, oud> showed Ut* anil
in the art? of declamation: It will
be recalled that one of Helton'!? pret
ty and smart little girla carried off
the honora at the Field Doy exercises
in Anderson a tew weeks ago, when
?little Miss Ruth Parker won the
medal for the best declalmer. She
was the y?gngeat girl in the contest

THE POW KR OF THE FRESH.
Considerable thought is being given
these days to the power of publicity,
[and to the efficacy of the press as a
means of reducing . und preventing
[crime. iSome of the greatest men of
the country have given testimony as
to the usefulness of newspapers in
bclpnlg to mold .and shape public
?opinion, to say nothing of their ability
to direct the minds ' and energies of
the people who read, and In thia day
and time, that means everybody.
Publicity is e.lso a great deterrent of
crime. We do not believe that there
would be uearly so much crime of
certain sorts if those who commit
?hem were to realise that there would
he certain and severe publicity given
their acts. True, some mothers and
wives wooli. be .-murfe . gt times to.
blusb for shame, but the doers of the
wrong would consider^ "thtese things if
they knew for a certainty that there
would be wide publicity given the
acta they commit in thoughtless nwv
ments. The Intelligencer hos tried
both places, anil, we are1 about tb con
clude that when we \ published all
[crimes, even the- reports of the police
courts, that there waa less tq pub
lish than would have been the case
following ono of |oUr periods of
. But, ut another sense. Ute press is
[powerful-that ia aa a leader'in pro
gressive works of merit. To lead the
people ? newspaper.'.must be far ahead
?of the crowd. That-editor must be a
seer, one who locks far ahead and
catches a glimpse coining events, and
tho possibilities.of-certain acta, which
history has proven follow certain
causes. A preacher, indeed, must the
enlightened 'sflfl..awakened press be,
and every day's editorial column
should be a1 act moa- to- drive- home
somep, rogr?sBlve thought ar some
mo;al truth. Of course, we all .fall

The following thoughts od this sub
ject from The Charlotte Observer,
quoting distinguished authorities will
I be of interest :
The "power, of tho presB" la a
phrase, as well as 'a tact, loaf
acknowledged tn America. It ls one
subject on which there has never
been any successful 'and sustained
skepticism. . Even those who have
minimised the Influence of editorial
opinion have admitted that the func
tion of handling what Pr?sident Wil
son calla the raw material cf opinion,
namely, new., gives the press ah. Im
portanne that cnn scarcely oe* . over
estimated. In several chapters of bia
thoughtful hook, "Prosta,!* ' Oeaald
Stanley I?ee holds that a rfFeat part
of Ute importance of the presidential
office arises from the fact that the
president himself is news, that he has
the ear of the country at any time
he choosos to speak and the country
looks to bim as the impersonation of
news-looks to him for news about
what manner of man ho la and what
manner ol people the American'peo
ple are. It would be interesting to
know to what extent Mr. Wilson has
been influenced, by these chapters, for
he has nevar lost an opportunity to
give an appraisal of the American
people aa they appear to him. Colonel
'Roosevelt remarked the other day in
the course ot his testimony. "I wanted
to reach the people and I knew no
other way to reach them except
through the newspaper*." With three
such interesting and widely different
men a* Mr. Wilson, Mr. Lee and Mr.
Roosevelt on recotd, by way ot con
trast, let us hear from a clergyman
vho waa Interviewed on the subject
in New York the other day. Bald he:
"The newspapers are one cf tho

[Editor Dally Intelligencer:
Will you please allow me a little,
space in year paper to reply to the
editorial of yours on "Violation of
Oath." I think you should have lock
ed the door before - the horse waa
stolen. In 1912 the Dem?crata of
Greenville County nominated a sheriff
in the primary. The napers ot that
county. Including tho Baptist Courier
atad Greenville News, if I .remember
correctly, came ont editorially for an '
Independent candidate to make the
race In Greenville election and begged
the people to disregard their oath and
support the independent candidate.
Now in 1914 Ute newspapers of South
j Carolina with' their Influence had
I Just such rul?s adopted aa Uley
wanted, claiming lt would give a fair
Democratic election. And so well
pjleased were they with said roles that
In 1815 Uley had them enacted into
a statutory law.

"Let ns say that Smith" said the
board of trade man, "is one of your
townspeople. He is n buoyant fel
low, full of appreciation of the pre?
sent advantages of your town, and
ita possibilities for growth. He goes
off some day to spend a week end
with hia wlfe'a relations, and incid
entally get? to talking about your
town. He tells what a good place lt
is .to Itve and do business W.'"
"A few months after it appears
that, some young man- In the town
visited by Smith is contemplating*the
Blurting of a new Indstry. He bas'a
tittle capital but finds his bjwp home
people Indifferent to bim. The words
of your friend' Smith had been heard
by Lia?j It strikes him that your
place might be an excellent town to |
get u ctart in. He writes.io Smith,
who luvltes the young man to his*
home, and later introduces bim to the
business men about town. He
gets Ute glad hand, aud Inside a few
months your town bas a new Industry.
"I believe." said the board of trade
man, "that in the majority of cases,
new industries locate In somewhat
that way. Some are founded in re
sponse to circulars and appeals Bent
out by boards of trade. The majori
ty come because a town lias acquired
a reputation for hustling, and for busi
ness and residence advantages.
Of course Smith might go visiting
for a hundred week ends, tell his re
latives blind about the advantages of
his town, and never Interest a soul
to think of moving there. Yet the
hundred and first time he might strike
some one who waa thinking of enter
ing some new venture, .and might
bring something back to bis home
' "If 100 men in any towu," conclud
ed the speaker, "would make H their
practice on ail possible occasions lo
say a word tactfully never forcing
the subject to people from other
towna as to the advantages of their
place, in time this would create quite
a widespread reputation. Some of
the people that heard about the town
would be interested to make further
Inquiries. A few of them would be
likely to move. In and bring some
good business with them."
A town grows and ls built .up by
its reputation was:the conclusion. .To
secure that reputation, the citizens of
a town must do all they can to spread
information about its advantages.;
From a thousand chance seeds of in
formation and helpfulness, a few will
bear fruit. It may seem luck and
chance, but it la really tbe result of
a community habit of -push and evpan
sion and search for new opportunity.
