as a candidate for the office of Clerk of
Court of Pickens county subject to the
rules and regulations of the Democratic
party in the primary election of 1916.
JoiP A. Ho1 f Nelton, candidate
for pongress fro this district, has
given outthe fellewlngletter discuss.
Hig import6 it qiftionsi.
I am sLrungly In favor pf labor unions.
It 0s the i%4,glven right of every man,
andshis right as a: citizen of: this great
country, to organize and unite with his
lellow-men for.te.apurpose of improv
g phis conditions iha general. No man
will dispute this as a general propo
sition. It fs.as natural for men to or
ginize for the general uplift of all and
for the bettering of conditions and sur
roundings as it is for witer to run'down
Let's look around, vgt ourvery doors,
and see what we find along this line.
The -cotton mills, doctors, dentists, law
yers, Ymerchants, bankers and hundreds
of other trades and ptofessions have
their organizations. ,Then why is it
wrong for the mill operatives to organ
ize? Why is he alone singled out as the
one class of our citizens "who shall not
organize" for the betterment of his con
ditions? It seems to me very short
sighted policy of some of our mill presi
dents to pursue the policy some have the
past months. Would it not be better
for them to say to their help, "Yes, go
ahead and organize, try and8select the
best men from your ranks for officers
and committeemen to represent you, and
when you have any grievance or com
plaint to make, we will meet you half
way. We will talk the matter over,
hear your side of the case and then pre
sent our's, and as reasonable men we
ean get together and adjust the matter.''
rhis seems to me to be the righticourse
to pursue and when anything is founded
upon right you stand upon very high
ground. It is a shameful state of af
Cairs when white men, living in a free
:ountry- "The land of the free and the
rome of the brave"-are actually afraid
to mention a word, above a whisper, in
favor of labor unions for fear of being
immediately turned off and thrown out
>f employment. I do not vouch for the
ruthfulness of the following, but it is
generally talked that if a man takes any
part in the getting up of a union, or
3ven speaks favorably of them, his job
s gone. And it is a very difficult mat
ter to get another position with any of
the mills in this section. If this be true
it is the rankest sort of oppression and
should not be tolerated. I hope it is not
true, for it is so unreasonable on its
very face it is hard to believe business
men would act so foolishly. Any person
who would transmit, by phone or letter,
the name of any man who had been dis
charged for the reason he was in sym
pathy with labor unions ought to be lia
able.criminally and any mill which aoun.
tenances any such act should be liable
for damages. It is an outrage that free
white men should be hounded from pil
lar to post in any such manner when he
is only exercising his right as a citizen
of this great country -the freedorm of
which we boast so mu<.h.
I say to the mill operatives to o 'gan
Ize. The longer you put . off just so
long are you standing in youm own light.
The masses of our people, both town
and country, are at our back. If our
mills continue the course in which they
have started they will soon find them
selves in the very unenviable position
the railroads deliberately placed them
selves by the way and manner they
treated the public a few years ago.
They soon discovered the short-sighted
ness of their policy and set about put
ting their house in order. But it took
a long time and they had to reap their
bitter reward. I have heard that some
of the mills of the Piedmont section of
our state have about decided it is the
wrong policy to fight the organization
of their help and to accept the situation
and meet it as men should. This would
seem to be the only rational course for
them ' > pursue. It is not much trouble
to get along with men who actually work4
for a living when you treat them like
human beings. The majority of the
help in many of the mills in this section
when shown that conditions do not war
rant any advance in wages would accept
the situation gracefully. All they would
want, and they have a peorfect right to
be shown, that conditions were truth.
fully represented as to profits. When
times are hard and no profits can be
made at the present wage-whatever
that might be-the help, when showr
actual facts, would be willing, as a
sonable men, to share in the depression.
Then, when conditions is improved and
the margin of profits increased, it Is
nothing but right that labor should share
In the increase.
I have noticed In the papers of late
that several of the New England milhi
have granted increases In wages, giving

As to the postoffico departme
tion In disturbing the rural free delivery
service by trying to combine two 'Outes
in one and have the service rendered in
automobiles, it seems to be meeting
with much opposition wherever it has
been tried out. It seems to me to be a
very serious mistake on the part of the
postoffice officials. It means for one of
the old routes to be served a good por
tion of the year by a sub-carrier, and
that means inefficient service. The
rural free delivery is the greatest thing
the national government has ever given
the masses of our people and for the
government to badly cripple the service
under the false notion of trying to econ
omise is simply deplorable. It is to be
hoped that enough congressmen and
senators will make such a vigorous pro
test that it will be discontinued and the
routes that have been changed put back
as before and each carrier given his
