Standing by his Frerids.
A great many folks commend
ed Governor Blease for cutting
off the IFactory Inspectors last
year, and at the same time com
mend him for "taking care of
his friends," Green and Creigh
ton at a salary of $200 and $100
a month with nothing to do. If
one was right how do you make
the other right?-Abbeville Med
lum.
A General Assembly of Ashleys.
"If the people of the State
-would send down to Columbia
:a general assembly composed
of Josh Ashleys we would have
a general assembly worth hav
ing." From the Associated
Press report of the governor's
speech at Anderson last Satur
day.
We would have a General As
sembly that would be unani
mously opposed to child labor
legislation or other legislation
for the improvement of condi
tions in the mill villeges. We
would have a General Assem
bly exactly to the taste of those
cotton mill presidents opposed
to altlegislatioa having to do
with hours of labor, factory in
spection and in any way limit
ing or regulating the authority
of the mill corporations over
their employees.
Anyone who will take the
trouble to examine the records
of nine or ten years ago when
labor legislation relating ito the
cotton mills was pending and
union labor in South Carolina
was urging its passage will find
that Representative Josh Ash
lev was a right hand man of
those cotton mill presidents who
were strenuously exerting them
selves to block it.-The State.

Columbia, Aprii 1-i.--The ac
tion of Governor Blease in ve
toing n a appropria tion of $4A.000
for the parchase of diphltheia
a.nti-toxin and in vetoing ihe bill
for the medical inspect ion of
school children w~as slharply
criticised by President J. W.
Kervey in his address today be
fore the South Carolina Medical
association.
"The governor," said Dr.
Kervey, "wvould casually ap
prove of spending $1.000,000 for
not essential additions to the
state house, while in the next
breath he ruthlessly vetoes an
appropriation of a paltry $4,000
for the purchase of diptheria
anti toxin to save the lives of
hundreds of poor men's
children who without its admnin
istration must perish."
The governors veto of the
medical inspection bill was char
acterized as "a most deplorable
instance of demagogic ap~peal to
the masses."
Two physicians, Dr. Kervey
declared, had by their vote help
ed to sustain the governor's veto
of this melsume, a thing that
wvas "humiliating to a devoted
profession, and in the face of
the unanimous desire oft the
South Carolina Medical asoci
ation.
A Farmer Hoodood.
Greenvilie. April 1;.-Local
peace authorities are making
strenuous efforts to locate Mmte
Stella DuRant, a clairvoyant of
unusual ability, who has been
unrav-elina the mysterious for
local residents for a mionth or
more. The "madame" did a
rushing business until Saturday,.
.and on that day she had a call
from W. D. Vaughn, a weil-to
do farmer, living near the city-.
Mr. Vaughan was much impress
with the clairvoyant's methods
and in giving a "sitting" to the
farmer she told him that on his
place in a certain spot was buri
ed a chest contaiing several
thousands, and for the sum of
$100 the madame offered to give
him information as to the 'exact
spot where the box was burial.
She first told the farmer many
things about his life and expern
ence, even calling him by name
- the minute he camie ito the
de News
: Here and There
:h Carolina.
Vaughan that he readily fork
ed over the -100 in ten 810 bills.
whereupon the clairvoyant ask
ed until Monday to give 'the in
formation, stating it would bc
necessary to stay in trance foi
six or seven hours, during which
period she would draw a map
of the location whe-re the nvmey
might be found. The farnmr
allowed her to keep the money.
and when he called today rv
the map the madame had de
parted for parts unknown.
Vaughan made his complaint
to the police, and now the force
is hunting the woman with
small chances of locating her.

"A pretty complete story isn't
it?" he chuckled.
"Yes, a pretty conplete story,
but you needn't have added
that about Cole Blease, for you
wouldn't be mistaken," was the
reply of the stranger.
"Ah! things,'' continued the
youthful patriarch. "'Everv

1,350 SOULS IN
WATERY GRAVE
When Titanic, Largest Ship
- Afloat, Plunge:; into Giant
Iceberg off Newfound
land Coast
New York, April l8-How the
White Star Liner Titanic, the
largest ship afloit. sank off the
Grand Banks of New Foundland
on Monday morning last carry
ing to their death 1,601 of the
2,310 peisons aboard, was told to
the world in all its awful details
for the first time tonight with
the arrival in New York of the
Cunard liner Carpathia bearing
the exhausted survivors of thr
catastrophe. Of the great facts
standing out from the cli'haotic
account of the tradgedy, these
are the most salient:
The death list has increased
rather than decreased. Six per
sons died after being rescued.
The list of prominent persons
los' stands as previously report
ed.
Practically every woman and
child, with the exception of
those women who refused to
leave their husbands, were
saved. Among these last was
Mrs. Isidore Straus.
The survivors on the lifeboats
saw the lights on the stricken
Titanic glimmer to the last,
heard her band playing and
saw the doomed hundreds on
her dock and heard their groans
and cries when the vessel sank.
Accounts vary as to the ex
tent of the disorder on board.
Not only was the Titanic tear
ing through the April night to
her doom with every ounce of
deam crowded oil, but she was
under orders from the general
offices of the line to make all the
,spced of which she was capable.
This was the statement made
toni!ht by J. H. Moody, a
quarter master of the vessel and
helmsman on the night of the
disaster. He said the ship was
making 21 knots an hour and
the officers were striving to live
up to thea orders to smash the
record.
"'It was close to miidnilght,"
saidl Moody, "and~ I was on the
bridge with the second officer
who was in comme~and. Sudden
ly he shouted f't your h'lelmi,
I did so but it was too late. W e
struck the submerged portion!
of the berg."
Of the man y accounts given
by the passengers most agreed
that the shock when the Tfitanic
e struck the iceberg, although rip
-ping her great sides like a~ giant
. can opener, did not greatly jar
the entire vessel for the blow
-was a glan :ing one along her
side. The accounts also agree
substantially that when the
passenaers were taken off on t he
lifeboats there was no serious
panic and that many wished
"to remain on board the Ti
tanic," believing it to be un
sinkable.
Sensational rumors told by
. hysterical passengers who would
-not giv e their n:ames said that
Capt. Smith had killed himself
on the bridge; that the chief
engineer had taken his life and
hat three Italians were shot in
t he sirue for the boats. Th~se
rumors - could not be consfirmed
n the early cT~ronfuion attend
ant on the lboding of the sur
vivo.0
R lio-d from st 2m to engine
room2 by th~e gr.at m:' s of ice
sh tuck amnidships, the Ti
-taIntic' side was laidl o;.en as if
by\ a gumait ic can opener. She
quickly listed to starboardi and a
chwe or ice on to the* fore
(. c'1stl eck. Shortly before she
i aksebroke in two abaft the
. nin 'e r o ,and as she disap
.peared beneath the ater the
,expu1liIon of air camsed twvo ex
L posions which were plainly
hanrd by the survivors adlrift.
3a mioment more and thte Titanic
had gone to her doom with the
. fate of hundreds grounped on the
j after deck. To the survivors
-thev were visible to the last
-i and1 their cries and moans were
pitiable.
t-RAPID RISE.
"A man came to town the other
day and he hadn't been here more
than twenty-four hours before ev
aerybody was looking up to him."
"Hlow did that happen?"
"He got a contract to paint the
flagstaff on our tallest building."

DANGER OF
CATHOLICISM
Some Interesting Facts as to the
Practices and Power ofRome
Her Influence and Strength
in America
There are var'ous opinions as
to the influence and power of
the Roman Catholic church on
the social, political, moral and
religious life of the people of the
United States. Some do not
think they will ever dominate
or, to any extent, control these
questions, while others, and
quite a number of the leading
and thipking men of America,
are alarmed over the inroads
they are making on our institu
tions and fear that in the com
ing future the iron heel of the
Pope will be upon the neck of
the American people.
We herewith give a few ex
tracts from the pen of the men
who have studied the question
and who are in position to speak
with some degree of knowledge.
From ,'Plain Truth," published
in Ark nsas, the following is
taken:
THE NEW CARDINALS IN AMERICA
News dispatches tell us that
at Rome, when the Pope gave
the new made American
and English cardinals the red
hats, they each took the regula
tion Romanish oath to obey the
Pope in all things, then KISSED
HIS FOOT, and then he gave the.n
red hats and made them "prin
ces of the church." The Pope
was carried around on a bedeck
ed throne, carried on the shoul
ders of his servitors, he is so
"humble and Christ-like."
Then the Pope sent "his bles
sings to the American people,"
as if they had asked him for
the farce!
Then the new cardinals, all
Irish, began to blow and boom
the "home coming." In Boston
and New York the military
formed an "escort." in imitation
of Pagan kingly ,lory, to attend
the red-robed, red-hatted, relig
io-political Pope-:nade "princes"
to the cathedrals.
In London, simultaneously
he new cardinal had a tremen
(ous procession to Westminster
cathedral, the first time such a
thing has been permitted since
the reformation.
In Boston it is Cardinal O'Con
nell, in New York Cardinal Far
ley, in London Cardinal Bourne,
all Irish.
The Pope is flaunting the rad
flag of Popery in the faces of
Protestantism and the Ameri
can and English constitutions
and flags.
We have told our readers how'
the president, vice-president,
Speaker Clark, ex-Speaker Can
non, ex-President Rcosevelt and
Chief Justice White all bowed
to Rome together last June in
Baltimore to eulogize Cardinal
f~ibbons in red hat and robes.
What does all this mean? T1- .
both England and America are
being Romanized, and govern
ment officials in both countries
are bending the knee to Rome
for v-otes.
It is a b)etrayal of religious
and polit ical liberty, for every
one of these officials knows that
Romanisnm is a sw-orn enemy of
both.
Tfhe constitution of the Unit
d States prohibits the reception
of any title of nobility, by any
citizen of this country,from any
foreign prince, potentate or pow
or, and yet here are these Ronm
ish cardinals in red togs, confer
red by the Pope, who considers
himself the world's political and
ecclesiastical lord and master,
calling themselves "princes of
the church," with parades, pro
cessions and military escorts, de
fying our constitution and ir'
suting this republic.
Something is going to happen
in America.
Ho0w THEY REGARD) OUR PUBLIC
SCHoOL-S
"In America was born the
free sch~ool system , and from
the date of its birth in 1695 to
the present, it has been the
means of giving to this nation
its most renowned statesmen,
jurists, patriots, agriculturists,
teachers and divines."
But against this most sacred
product of American liberty,
Rome lifts her unholy hands.
ainst her schools se hurls
her worst anathemas. But it is I
our purpose in these chapters to
let the Roman Catholic church
sneak for itself. Its language
is plain and needs no interpreta
tion.
"These public schools are de
vouring fire-pits of destruction.
They ought to go back to the
devil, whence they came. "-The
Freeman's Journal.
"If your son or daughter is
attending a state school, you i
may be sure that you are violat

"The public schools have pro- (

Priest Schauer.
"I would as soon administer

"The public school system

"The common school system

"Educatikn outside of the Ca

"It is desirable, vener able
brethren. that in concert with
your colleagues in the Episco

guard Catholic children from
frequenting schools in which
their religious instruction is neg

we desire, as has alreaby been
intimated to you by the propa
ganda, that in apuroaching
Episcopal meetings you careful
ly discuss the measures that
may best h :lp to attain this end.
We wish you also to use your
earnest efforts that the civil
magistrates, who know well
that nothing is more advantag
eous to the commonwealth and
religion, should provide, by the
enactment of wise laws, that
the office of teaching, which is
carried on at the expense of the
public, including constantly
the contributions of Catholics.
should contain nothing that
stands in the way of their con
science runs foul of their religion
-Leo XIII.

There are over 15,000.000O
Catholics in the United Stae.K
and they are healthy voters ou
election day. That is where

to covet that vote. The dis-'

CHANCES OF

Democratic Prospects Are Brigh1
Accorhing to Our Washing

I stand by my forecast of
bwo months ago-that the De

>eople of the United States elect,
hamp Clark of Missouri. The
vork of the extra session and
.lark's part in it is conspicious
y creditable to him and spells
7ictory for the Democratic par

There is no man in this
ountry who more shrewdly and
ntelligently understands what
he Democratic party is now
ighting for and what it would

ective public-s% aking candi
ate this country ever say. He
ill rally, arouse and unite the
ational Democracy as he has
allied. roused and made effec
[ve in solid phalanx the Demo
rats of the House, and just as
e won over Republican aid in
he House, he will win many
housand of voters who never
efore cast a Democratic ballot.
Another thing pleasant to
hink about in the event of his
lection is that he will cary with
ifli a sympathetic Congress.
t has happened several times
hat Presidents have failed to
:et along with Congress, large
y because they had never had
,ongressional experience. That
vas the foundation of Cleve

tas. had eight een years of this
:ind of experience and no man
n either party has ever enjoyed
nore friendships. He under
tands Congress and knows

,sort of talk coming from Repub
licans, who have been in au
thority so long and who haye
been leaders of their party in
all the politicial campaians for
the last thirty years. From the
outlook, I agree absolutely with
their sentiments, that unless -
the Democrats play the infernal
fool at their convention in Balti
more, they certainly will win
the Presidency and the next
House of Representatives and
probably the next United States
Senate. If they do, they will
win sometning that has not oc
cured since Cleveland's last elec
tion in 1892. and then can de
monstrate to the entire country
the fact that the Democrats of
this country who are elected as
representatives of the people,
can be constructive legislators.
in the interest of the people in
stead of obstructive and de
strucf-ve members of Congress.
It is with a profound feeling of
personal misgiving, that I at
tempt to prognosticate anything
appertaining to this campaign,
but when you add two and two
together and recognize the fact
that Roosevelt is rippi:z the Re
publican party up the back
every time he opens his mouth
and that La Follete is tearing
great holes in the Republican
armor every time he makes a
speech, it is plain to be seen that
the Republican party is in a bad
way and that it is gradually
getting worse. A Republican
said to me to-day that Roose
velt was out to destroy the Re
publican party and it looked
very much to him as though he
were going to beda-very
ful destroyer. It o ks t at
way to every man in the Capi
tol of this country who keeps
his fingers on the pulse of poli
tics and his ear to the ground
listening to the echoes that come
from the warrior. Writing this
correspondence as I do and re
ceiving the exchanges of the
newspapers in the country who
print .it, I can come pretty near
making a decent guess as to
what is going on in the minds
of the people. It has
taken a long time for the
people to arouse themsel, es and
do something for themselves
and at last they have come to
the conclusion to get busy.
Tn all my political experience,
and especially as that of a news
paper cornespondent at Wash
ington, I have never seen the
sentiment so thoroughly in har
imony from bot h a Republican
and a Democratic standpoint
that this is a Democratic year,
that the Democrats are going to
sweep the country. During the
last ten yea. s I have written let
ters to the Democratic press re
tailing the rottenness of the Re-.
9ublican party and its sins
against the common people of
this country and often I hav-e
concluded with "Hw
Lord, will the people be fooled"~'
My honest opinion is now. if it
is worth anything to the readers
of this correspondence, that the
people of this country will be
fooled no longer and will now
see that dishonesty wins -not
more than honesty.
