LAURENS, S. C, Feb. 14, 1906.
NOT A CALHOUN STATE.
The following is from the Greenville
"Wives and daughters of the State
have sent petitions to the Legislature
asking for the enaction of the bill pro
posing to appropriate $25,000 for the
statue of John C. Calhoun, to be erected |
in the capitol at Washington. The News
would hate to think that it is necessary
for the presentation of such requests in
order to gain the passage of a bill in
tended to honor the name of South
Carolina's grandest statesman."
The esteemed News is belated with
its "hate to think." It is unfamiliar
with the recent history of South Caro
About 17 years ago a son-in-law of
Mr. Calhoun, who had come into pos
session of Mr. Calhoun's homestead
died, leaving the homestead and other
properties actually worth in the aggre
gate' about $75,000 to the State of South
Carolina for a College conditioned on
its bearing the name of the son-in-law,
not of Mr. Calhoun, and upon its being
governed perpetually by a board of 13
trustees, seven, a majority, being ap
pointed under the son-in-law's will and
being empowered to elect their own
successors forever. This College is
now supported in the main by a special
class tax paid indirectly by the farmers
and directly by fertilizer companies of
about $130,000 each year and the Col
lege's total annual income is about $160,
000 to $170,000,-fully double the money
value of the bequest of Mr. Calhoun's
son-in-law. The chief value of the bequest
was a sentimental one; it would have
been worth something to have built
"Calhoun College" at Calhoun's home,
but the legislature of South Carolina
destroyed as far as it could this senti
mental value by deliberately permitting
dissociation of the name of the historic
homestead and its owner from the Col
The legislature could have rejected
the "Clemson Bequest" and one year's
present income of a "Calhoun College"
would have yielded double the money val
ue of the bequest.The "CalhonnCollege"
could have been built on another spot
or if the bequest had been refused per
haps the Fort Hill property could ha'"
been bought from the heirs.
We have at Clem' , ? , _ ,
legcdr.:?"<l splendid Col
a work of great value and
doing it, we suppose, as well as could]
be expected. But this College is con
trolled not by the State of South Caro
lina but by the creatures of the Clem
son will; hence it is not strictly or pri
marily or chiefly a State institution.
The farmers through the tag tax each
year give $130,000 to what is essentially a
private institution and the farmers'
money supports an institution for the
benefit equally of the banker's, the
lawyer's and the mill man's sons. Clem
son is the only school in South Caro
lina, high or low, to which an editor
can send his son without being taxed
for the school's support. The farmers
pay all the Clemson taxes.
We believe in the usefulnesss of
Clemson College; we would not have it
injured; we are ready to support it
whenever it needs friends but that is
no reason why the truth should be sup
pressed. The acceptance of the Clem
son bequest was necessary for the pol
itical interests of certain politicians,
one of whom proclaimed at the time
that he aspired to and would accept no
other office than the trusteeship of an
agricultural college ?and who has been
running for other offices ever since and
getting them too. So then and there
the State of South Carolina through its
General Assembly turned its back on
the memory of John C. Calhoun and
the most sacred personal associations
of his life in South Carolina.
The ladies are mistaken. This is no
Calhoun State. A greater than Cal
houn has come upon the stage.
TALBERT SPEAKS PLAINLY.
The following is from Mr. Kohn's re
port of the Senate proceedings of last
"Senator Talbert, in speaking in ad
vocacy of his bill, declared that he op
posed the dispensary system from A to
lzzard, and no did not know that he
could swallow any compromise on the
subject. He declared that the people
had never asked for the dispensary, but
it was forced on them. It has become
corrupt and appears to be as rot
ten as hell itself. He opposes it be
cause it places too many temptations
before officers. It is a violation of the
Lord's Prayer, because the State leads
her own citizens into temptation. It
mal; . all citizens sellers of liquors, men
and women barkeepers indirect ly. He
opposed it because the State has no
right to monopolize any business, es
pecially a damnable one like the dis
pensary. He opposed it because it has
a tendency to make liquor selling re
spectacle, which it cannot be. It en
courages the sale and consumption of
liquor. It was a false pretence that it
was a step towards prohibition; he did
not believe those who held out that
statement were honest. As a final ar
gument he held that the sale of liquor
under any system is contrary to the
law of God.
"He made a lengthy argument in fa
vor of prohibition and concluded with an
appeal to Senators not to let the crack of
the whip of Tillman at Washington drive
them against their convictions. As for
him, one reason he wants to get rid of
the damnable dispensary is that when
it goes Ben Tillman will go with it."
Senator Talbert represents Edgefield
County. He is a son of the Hon. W.
Jasper Talbert, sometime candidate for
Governor and leading prohibitionist in
Edgefield County. In 1902 the effort
was strenuously made to draw the
lines, old factional lines, in favor of
Col. Talbert against Capt. Heywnrd
and Col. Talbert carried the county.
We shall see whether or not the Tal
bert8 will be classed as "Old Antis"
hereafter and?no matter how they are
classed they will take care of them
Whatever else may be said of the
Talberts, nobody is going to say that
they aro afraid to speak their minds.
The young Senator, if ha is like his fa
ther, can't be bullied even by a United
Of course when the sewage system
is complete, the ladies of Laurens will

and the streets are almost as ill kept as
those of any city in the State, oxcept,
of course, Columbia.
Any Laurens farmer can do better
than to raise cotton at present prices by
raising a few mules at present prices.
Eleven cents cotton is too cheap for
$200 to $300 mules and the farmer who
can't get more for his cotton should
raise his own mules.

Into every crack aud crevice, carrying

THE GARDEN OF EDEN.
It* Location a. Mystery That Will
l'robably Never De Solved.
The location of the earthly paradise
or garden of Eden Is still a matter of
dispute among orientalists and Scriptu
ral scholars of highest reputation. Some
havo endeavored to locate It by the
fruits and mineral productions named
in tho Biblical descriptions as they ap
pear lu the second chapter of Genesis;
others by the rivers mentioned lu
verses 11 to 14 of the above mentioned
chapter. The weight of Investigation
and tradition Inclines to an agreement
that the Tigris and the Euphrates of
modern geography are the third and
fourth rivers mentioned In the Biblical
description of the garden. Those who
agree so far differ widely as to what
rivers should now bo regarded as the
ancient l'lson and Gihon. Tho Bud

Is altogether probable that they ore

Somo Investigations confirm that
Eden was a spot of comparatively
small area located on tho tablelands of
what Is now Armenia, from which rise
the Tigris and the Euphrates. A few
scholars of distinction argue that tho
Adamic paradise was located in Africa
In tho vicinity of tho mountains of tbe
Moon. Still another school of oriental
ists locato the celebrated garden In the
vicinity of the ancient city of Babylon.
You will notice, however, that none
of these theorists has been able to get
the four rivers mentioned In the Bib
lical account properly located. Neither
have they found a place where one
great river "separates into four heads."
This being tin? ease, it Is hardly neces
sary to add that the exact location of
Eden Is a mystery that will probably
never he solved.

Tho word "opera" Is a caso of verbal
