The Democratic Candidates for th
and Ch
Special to The Sentinel.
Washington, D. C--Thc!
Democratic party in the House
of Representatives has put the
Republicans in a hole and soap
ed the sides and pulled up the l
ladder. Their latest move has
astounded the Republicans and t
made their eyes bulge out like I
buck eyes on a mud wall. This (
consummation devoutly to te'
wished has been brought about
by the move the Democrats
haveim'ade in bringing a bill in I
for free sugar and an amend
ment to the Excise Law which I
will produce the same amount
of revenue cut off by free sugar.-i
This proposition means by tak
ing the tax off of raw sugar
will cut down revenues of the
government about $50,000,000.
00 per annum. By $5,000.00 a!
year one percent, mean; thati1
$60,000,000.00 a year will be add- t
ed to the reveaues, thus adding
not less than $10,000,000. 00 per
annum more than was received
by the sugar tax and saving the]
consumers of this country' no
less than $100,000,000.00 a year
in taxes, and compelling the
rich people of this country to
pay that tax. This is what I t
call constructive statesmanship
and Champ Clark and the lead- C
ers in the Democratic House of
Representatives are responsible I
for this piece of legislation that t
will make a new issue in the ]
coming campaign.
The Democrats were very
secretive concerning the sugar
schedule until the night of the
caucus where the whole thing
was sprung as a surprise and
unanimously adopted by the
Democrats in caucus as a Demo
cratic measure with the excep
tion of the Democrats from
Lousiana and Colorado. the two
big producing sugar States, one
cane sugar- and the othE beet
It is claimed by some that if
this bill becomes a law it will
ruin the sugar industries of
those two States and put nearly
a half a million people out of
business. In the first place it
will do no such thing. it will
cut down their pr-ofts, perhaps,
a cent and a half a pound on1
sugar, which will go into tne
pockets of the consumers of this
country and which the conseum
ers of this country ought to be
pleased at. Even if it did put
that many people out of buisi
ness what is 500,000 people com
pared to the interest of 90,000
000 people who use sugar every
day on their tables?
As I have said previously, this
will save the people of this coun
a. try not less than $100,000,000.00
per annum. Now, if the duties
on raw sugar place only $650, -
000,000.00 in revenue into the
Treasury. where' does the other
$50,00,000.00 com from that
will be saved to the cons umers
of this countryi Simplpy fr-om

lison, two prominent farmers
residing about three miles below
Easley, the result of which was
that Hunt was shot and killed
by Ellison. Details of the un
fortunate affair are not obtaina
ble, but it is reported that the
two men, who had formerly been
friands, met at Ellison's store,
where a dispute arose over some
trivial matter. Hot words fol
lowed when, it,. is said, Hunt
struck Ellison with something,
and Ellison fired, killing Hunt.
Ellison gave himself up to the
authorities, was carried to An

the tragedy ocer just over
the line in that county. Ellison
has retained Hon. J. P. Carey,
of Pickens, to represent him.

Mr. B. L. Caugbman, Chm.
Railroad Commission of S. C.
Columbia, S, C.
Dear Sir:
On February 29th, 1912 I in
spected the Pickens Railroad of
South Carolina from Easley tc
Pickens, S. C.
Generally speaki'g, I found
this road in good condition.
Fifty pound rails are in use and
while the grades are very heavy
still the roadbed is otherwise in
good .condition. The drainage
is good and the cross-ties are ex
ceptionally fine, as they are en
tirely of oak. The roadbed is
ballasted nearly its entire length
of more than nine miles with
fine gravel, which makes a sub
stantial roadbed. The railroad
company has recently erected a
new depot at the town of Pick
ens, that is in every way ade
quate and is a credit both to the
railroad and to the town.
There are a great many trestles
on this short line but the timbers
have been recently repaired and
are in good condition. The
management of this road has
recently purchased currugated
iron pipes sufficient to carry the
water under these trestles and
I am informed that they will
oon begin to fill in all trestles
in compliance with instructions
of the Railroad Commission in
ts Circular No. 158 fixing a
limited number of years in
which to complete this work.
I feel that it is well to empha
ize the fact that this road has
he distinction of being one of
he few in the country that does
not operate its trains on the
Sabbath day.
Respectfully submitted,

who has been at work down
there for some time, reports
Tuesday that he has signed a

Mr. Dendurant has been pros
pecting in the gold fields of the
West for 20 years, and says he
knows gold quartz wvhen he sees
it. Specimens sent him from
Rocky river before he came here
assayed fairly well-$4 to $15
per ton. This appears to be
free milliag gold, and he thinks
there is a large deposit. The
free milling gold does not re
quire the use of a stamp mill,
and therefore can be handled
more readily and more profit
Mr. Dendurant reports that
there are also la-rge deposits of
tungsten' a metal from which
guins are made, in that same
section? The point at which
he is working is on the line of
the proposed rail way from An
erson to Abbeville, and is also
on the ledge running diagonally
across the State, showing out
croppings of. gold all the way
from Dorn's mine at McCor
mfick, to the Hale mine in Lan
castor and the Brewer mine in
Chesterfield. He thinks there
is a large sect ion of the county
in Anderson and Abbeville
counties which could be mined
with great profit. He predicts
the success of Capt. P. K. Mc
Cully's copper minifig interests
near Donalds. He is not a

Will You Help to Make It So'
A town or city is iudged by strangers by its apppear
ance. The thrift and enterprise of the people are known
by the same sign and surrounding conditions. The farm
er who never cleans off his ditch banks, repairs his ter
races and ditches will soon have no land to cultivate.
When he lets his tools and farm implements be scattered
over tho field, here and 3onder, he will soon have no tools
The progressive spirit of a town can be shown in
many ways. The business houses can be made attract
ive by keeping the goods in their proper place and deco
rating windows, though in a simple way. A town can
be made inviting at little cost by keeping the streets re
paired and clean. When rubbish and mud, and this and
that are allowed to accumulate on the streets, it shows
carelessness and indifference.
The fences, gates and lots testify strongly to the en
terprise and spirit of the people of a town. To see these
dilapidated, sometimes swinging on one hinge, the lots I
full of weeds, grass and trash-it is unsightly and unin
The time has come for the people of Pickens to clean
up. Spring is here, and every citizen should begin to
bestir himself for a City Beautiful. There is no reason
why this town should not be the prettiest in the upper
part of the State. Main street should be paved as early
as possible. The other streets should be put in apple pie
order. All the lots and private yards should be early
cleaued and made nice and healthy. A coat of paint on
some of the residences and business houbes would help
the cause, without much expense. There are several
places where lime and whitewash could be used to ad
-vantage. Last, but not least, the court house groands
should be made to look better. It occupies the central.
place in the town and could be made beautiful by the ex
penditure of a little money. The lower half of the lot
should have trees on it. The entire lot should be laid out
in walks and sodded with grass and flowers and a neat
fence placed around it.
Ho, for a beautiful Pickens! Will you join us, fel
low citizens? 'f not, pull ont?
