iAURENS, S. L\. August 17, 1004.
JUq Stands for Law.
n Judge Parker's speech of acoept
co positive, unqualified and deter
Uned its port for law ar.d order is the
lent and overshadowing feature,
rough every sentence and between
ry line shines a dec'aratien that if
becomes president tho laws of tho
try shall be enforcod. In tho lan
? of a man of horse sense ho asserts
ho statute > aro already plentiful
ot the people against monnpo
hla,doeiared purpose that they
bo effective will induce such a fit
enabling to tho trusts as they do,
amid all the thunderous clamor
wordy Teddy. Judge Parker
b'doubt-that, while he will not
re with tho labor unions, neither
allow the labor unions to trans
the rights of other moo and wo
Ireover, he binds Himself hard and
to tho his'orie principle, degrade 1
cent years of the Democratic party,
the tariff laws should bo so pruned
remodeled that certain industries
'.Ot ba permitted to grow bloated
io expense of tho mass?s of tho
lerioan people. Thero is not one
liable in his speech to arouse the
fhtest alarm in tho minds of any axnn
fpased to ob?y tho laws. Neither doss
JOntain a syllable not fraught with
?ger to those who tolorato disorder,
io defy law or expect to obtain spe
ll privilege by Indirection.
Java that he was a clean man and an
le judge, popular in the State of New
>rk, tho masses of the Democrccy
low little of Judgo Parker before he
nominated. Their coulhienco in
was largely confidence in his asso
ifces. and sponsors. From tho moment
tf he sent his telegram refusing to
ipt a nomination Umderod under a
mdow of doaht upon h's candor, ho
ps continued to grow bigger in the
lblic eye as a man of extraordinary
>r-onal force of character. His ewry
!0 and utterance have beon those of
food poH-iclan and they have been
)0d politics because an honest,
ralghtpath Is always the easiest to
head. Ho held hls'poace and resigned
Iis judge-ship in a manner that any
lain gentleman would havo employed,
hi clojes his speech of acceptance with
le assertion that if elected he will not
peept a renomination. Ho is careful
)t to reflect upon others who havo
iught a second term, but ho says that
does not wish his uctlons to be In
iced by any possible desire for a
jond term and that lie wishes the
know that his conduct Is at
Jjiased by this consideration,
think that no utterance
of any president of tho
Ks^?iudicaU'i! a loftier or
nicer sensj of pJIullcduty or a purer or
higher mind than this. If Judge Parker's
caudidacy does not "command success"
it will "d? more. It will deserve it."
More Voting Places Needed.
Until this year Charleston Democrats
have had^two precincts In each ward,
but for some strange reason the county
executive committee lately abolished
oay-half of these voting places. In
[ntty tho cry was raised that tho num
of voters was so large in many
[rds that the ten hours during which
je polls are open would not allow sol
vent time for the vo'.ers to deposit
lie ballots. Ic was hinted that tho
lard-heelers" would crowd around
^o!.'3 nnd kill time by challenging
other dilatory methods so that
ibrrs of busy men would tire of
ting and leave in disgust.
>e suggestion was that it was the
imo of the professional politicians to
jtic.Ally disfranchise numbers of
who havo not more than ton or
sen minutes to devoto to exorcising
ir sulTrago as Democrats. The prcs
b"uTo was sj great that tho committee
rescinded its fiction as to the four most
populous wards with the result that the
causo of fair p'ay and honest politics is
enhanced in Charleston. Inasmuch as
8tato ofllcera and congressmen aro
chosen In the primarie s tho whole State
has an Interest in the political methods
of Charleston and has tho right to ro
monet a'o against whatever eppoars to
savor of underhand proceeding.
* - It seems to The Adveutiskh that it
dl for tho State Democratic
tlo provide that no voting
fwhero shall contain moro
tors. When as many as live
'or Si A" 11 ti lid red ballots aro cast In ono
I box tho count is necessarily dolayed
for many hours. Tho longer the returns
are in coming in tho greater is the op
portunity for the practice of fraud.
Up to Senator Latimer.
PickenB county t he candMa'es for

like to know what Senator As

Nevertheless when Senator Latimer

The Depot Must be Moved.
The people of Laurens must not a low
their /.etil and aotlvltles to Kbate Until
tho passonger s'utlon nuisance is n nie
died. Noithor tho people n ir the rail
oads cuu afford to permit 'his continu
ing danger to life and property to ro
main. Vory probably the railroad*
cannot seo that It is to tie ir inter, si
that thi9 cortuin cause of accidents
sooner or lat jr should bo I'dinoved but
is. Should oue or more persons bo
killed at this Main Sttctt crowing, i'
would bo next to Impossil le to c >n
inco any jury of Liurens pi ople thai
tho railroad company was no' responsi
ble. In any case for damages that may
arise in future at this crossing, a strong
prima facie case of gross negligeno is
already made out against tho rail
road. It is necessarily a blind and
foolish policy for tho railroads to
allow this condition to copfron* lb .in.
Tino Advertiser i- Informed that
the railro?d authorities claim that if
they mint build a passengor station on
the side next to the square, on tho site
for exumplo of the old brick depot,
they will bo compelled to hav ) n cross
ing over Main Street,?in oMn-r words,
that it will bo necessary for Main street
o pass under a tres le work at tho
Main street crossing as In tho case of
the crossing of the C. N. ? L. on K ist
Main tt-eet. We do not understand
how they arrive at this conclusion but
it appears that if such an arrangement
be required with tlrj passenger depot
on the side of the tracks next tlie
pquare, it would bo all tho more re
quired under tho present at rang ment
when all tho vehicles meeting passen
ger trains must cross a net work of sur
But tho n aui j oint is that tho pres*
ont arrangement is a danger and a nui
sance and the people of Laurens owe
it to thomsolves never to "ltt up" until
the situation is roforraed.
Tiilmaii and Clemson.
In a speech at Clorason last woi k
Senator Tlllman remarked tint thos
who opposed the establishment of 01cm
son had all Hooked to its support, In
sinuating that they had ' "(loppo.l
around" to 'ho popular side. As usual
the Senator told only half the trUi-'fc
It is true that tho former "Conserva
tive" elomont arc now the host friends
of Clemson. They are always in favor
of liberally supporting "existing insti
tutions"?that phraso may bo recalled.
It is equally true that a largo propor
tion of tbe people who clamoro I for
Clemson's establishment are no longer
its friends. The reason i3 simple. They
wore induced <o assist In its establish
ment under false pretenses. Senator
Tillman in 1885-1800 promised them a
college where a boy, no mattor how
poor, might go and oarn his college ex
penses by working three or four hours
each day on the college farm. The op
ponents of the establishment exposed
the ab&urldity of this statement but
tho masses accepted it as they did any
and all things however preposterous
from Tillman. Senator Tillman also in
duced the farmers to believe that the
college would cost them nothing but
they have discoverod at last that they
are heavily and specially t?x<"i for it.
Clemson is really the only state coll ge
whose support dots not fill equally no
on all clusses of people. It falls most
hoavily upon tho farmers. The sen it ir
is right when ho bays that Charleston
sends more boys to Clemson than do
most other counties. Charleston sends
them because Clemron Is a good me
chanical college and a cheap college
Thus tho farmers are specially taxed
to maintain a college for boys who
como from a county which is practically
without a farming class. Such n frl >nd
of the farmer is Senator Tillman. .More
over, Clomson Is popular bee-use tho
exponfos aro low. Many a town matt
will send his boy to a $200, the year
colloge rather than a $300 the year col
lege but to the "ono horse farmer's
boy" a $200. a yoar college h us far out
of reach as a 11,000. a year college. In
other words both are hopelessly beyond
him. This fact was pointed out in this
paper as far back i?s 1889.
Senator Tillman confesses In his
speech that the Clemson boys ns a rule
havo not studied agrlen turo and boasts
of what other departments of the col.:
lego havo dono. He neglect-' however, to
say that whon Clemson was established
a high grade, succcessful und popular
mechanical state school was already In
oxis'ence and that tho destruction of
one to establish anolhor was a useli .
waste of money. That Clemson is <h>
ing a great work as a technological
SOhool no one will deny. That it is val
uable to the cotton spinning int? rests
In turning ont young men who make
eo >d mill olllcors is true in tho highest
degree. That it is a s< hool wh ire boys
may receivo education both of tho hind
and mind makes it w.irthy of generous
support on tho part of all tho people.
Hut it should bo remombcrcd that this
follow Tillman proclaimed t hat tho peo
ple neodod an "agricultural colloge
puro and simple." Ho urged tho hui d
Ing of Clemson college as a "farmers'
collogo" and ospociaWy as a colli fot
the "poor farmer." Whatever he had
to do with tho establishment of the col
lege was through claims tint history
has since nailed as both false and silly
nut now he nimbly htruddlos Another
horso and asks for tho credit, just us
though be had not deluded iIicmO smne
farmers I? years ago.
Nevertheless, the senator is from his
