A Reader Writes
About New Rule
Mr. Editor: Some of your
correspondents are rather severe
on the doctors because of their
recent action. I dare say they
are clearly within their legal
rights and from an economic
point of view are equally so.
There are few people in this
country who cannot pay a reas
onable doctor ball sometime dur
ing the year. I do not believe
the doctors would enforce this
rule literally, for I am sure if
sickness should occur in any
family who was destitute and
which would be real charity

compact would gladly and
ceerfully render the necessary

the poor as well as the rich.
People frequently spend their
small earnings for luxuries and
frivilous things that do them
no good, instead of laying it up
against a ramny day to pay their
doctor and for the actual com
forts and necessaries of life.
I have known men to buy
whiskey and drink it who
would ha,ve to give a lien or
mortgage for what they eat,
and I dare say some do so yet.

We have not the space to
give Gov. Blease's message in
full. We Pivebriefly some of
his recommendatiias. He rec
ommends: A two cent--pe.ssen
ger rate on all railroads. ThAS
will likely be made a law.
A one mill levy for the public
schools, and says if this is not
done all appropriations for State
Colleges will be vetoed.
He recommends changing the
name of Clemson College to
Calhoun College. Also ieduc
ing the rate of interest from
eight to six per cent.
He wants the law against
carrying concealed weapons
repealed and a law passed grant
ing licenses to all who wish to
carry pistols.
Recommends the abolition of
the hosiery mill; the election of
all judges ,.y the people instead
of the legislature. The Torrens
land title system is mentioned
but no recommendations made
as to it. These are the most
essential points covered in the

Washingrton, D, C.,- Pres

Railway Company, commenting
upon the record of cotton mill
construcrion during the calendar
year 1912, said:
L "The Southeastern States led all
other sections of the country in
cotton mill developmCns in 1912.
There were 37 new mills built in
the United States during the
year. Of these 20 were in the
Southeastern states. Out of
53, 100iOj spin dies 427,000. or
SO per cent. were in South
eastern mills, and out of 9,774
new looms. 6,450, or 66 per cen t.
were in Southeastern mills.
These figures refer only to new
mills and take no account of the
large additions made during the
year to existing plants by whIch

State Legislatures Ar Expected to
Ratify the Constitutiona' Amend
ment-Provision for Federa --
trol Has Not Been Eliminated.
Washington.-If the states of the
Union, through their legislatures, do
what it is expected they will do,, it is
virtually assured that every United
States senator sworn into office two
years from next March will present
credentials which are direct gifts
from the people.
Ten years ago if It had been sug
gested to the elders of the senate that
in little more than a decade the exist
Ing system of senatorial elections
would be a thing of the past they
would have said that such a thing was
only a dream of the dreamers. It
would have been too radical a proposi
tion then to have been received with
anything but smiles and some sneers
from the conservatives of the day.
The terms of thirty.senators will ex
pire March 3, 195, and it Is entirely
probable that every one of their suc
cessors will be elected under a new
provision of the constitution which
will give the people the right djrectly
"to name their men." In a recent
dispatch the possibilities in the case
of the income tax amendment to the
constitution were discussed. The
amendment which provides that
United States senators shall be di
rectly elected by the people is In less
danger of defeat than Its companion
tax amendment, although the latter
probably will successfully travel the
road to accomplishment.
Last Spring-May 13, to be exact
c-)ngress passed a joint resolution pro
osing the amendment to the consti
tution for the direct election of sena
tors. Three days later the secretary
of state received an embossed parch
ment copy -of the resolution. It was
transmitted' to the states of the Union
for ratification. The legislatures of
only two of the states have been in
session since the action of congress on
the amendment was taken. The leg
islatures of Massachsetts adO103
tana considered the resolution and
ratii&n " What Massachusetts and
- e done it seems virtually
certain We6ther states will do.
No Opposition in Sight.
In January, 1913, the legislatures of
thirty-three states meet. This num
ber includes Massachusetts and Mon
tana, leaving thirty-one legislatures
in session whose -6-Ty it will be to
ratify or to reject the amendment
which will put senatorial elections di
rectly Into the hands of the people.
Thirty-six states must ratify before
the amendment can take its place as
an added paragraph to the great docu
ment. If all the legislatures which
meet in January sanction the amend
ment It will be within three votes of
the adoption stage. There is no rea
son to believe, in the light of recent
.advanced legislation. that the legisla
ture of any state will withhold Its ap
If, by chance, objection should be
raised In some of the more conserva
tive commonwealths there are still
fifteen legislatures to meet in January,
1914, and no leader of any party in
Washington seems to doubt for an In
stant that by Feb. 1, 1914, the consti
tution of the United States will pro
vide for a new way to elect members
of the upper house. It will be possi
ble, unless things go unexpectedly
awry, fcr the people to take advantage
of the new .provision in the fall of the
year of 1914 and in the states where
senatorial vacancies are to occur in
March, 1915, to name men to fill
them by direct vote expressive of
their will in the matter. The new or;
der will have come.
The fact -that the Democrats, like
the Progressives and the Republicans,
seem to think that the amendment for
the direct election of senators Is to
prevail helps one in forecasting suc
cess. The Democrats take some pride
in the claim that the direct senatorial
election was fathered and fostered by
them. The constitution provides for
federal control of senatorial electors.
This is in the constitution, and It Is
not part of the proposed amendment.
-Federal Control to Continue.
The Democratic party, through Its
leaders in congress, voiced a desire
for the direct choice of members of
the upper house, but it wanted to give
charge and supervision of the elec
tions into the hands of the states. This
neither the Republicans nor the pro
gressive Republica.ns in the senate
would stand for. The house was Dem
ocratic, and for a long time the upper
and lower house men were at logger
heads on the form which the amend
ment was to take, or rather on the
question of striking"-utt the "federal
control provision."
The majority in the senate Insisted
that the amendment s'hould not change
in any way the article prescribing fed
eral authority over senatorial elec
tions. The joint resolution, as the
house passed It. gave the states abso
lute authority. There was a year's
delay before the Democratic majority
In the house yielded, and so It Is that
the states today have an amendment
before them which does not Interfere
in any way with the.existing provision
of the constitution giving the federal
government the rights which It bas
had for years.
