MR. SMITH REVIEWS
Everybody Should Staad Firm and Hold
their Vantage Around?President
Smith Makes an- Appeal.
Mr. E. D. Smith, president of the
South Carolina division of the Southern
Cotton Association, gave out the fol
lowing interview on June 9th:
"In view of the fact that such a num
ber of planters and merchants through
out ihe South are nulling their cotton
for next fall delivery at 10 cents per
pound, there are certain facts which I
deem it the duty of myself and others
who are posted, 1 o give to the members
of the Southern Cotton Association and
those interested in the continued high
price of cotton and the consequent pros
perity of the South.
"In 1904 we made practically 14,000,
000 bales of cotton, in 1905 we made
approximately 10,500,000. These two
items make an average of about 12-260,
000 bales for the two years, 1904 and
1905. Notwithstanding this enormous
yield of cotton, enormous in compari
son with what we have been led to be
lieve was necessary for the world's sup
ply, hear what the officers of the Brit
ish Cotton Growing Association have to
say in reference to the cotton situation
published May 19th in the official jour
nal of the Manchester Cotton Associa
tion. This journal says:
" 'On last Thursday what the prime
minister described as one of, if not the
most influential deputation? that has
ever waited upon the head of the gov
ernment of this country, met together
in the foreign office: London. Accom
panying Sir H. Campbell Banner were
the Earl of Elgin, colonial secretary;
Mr. John Morley, secretary for India;
Mr. Winston Churchill, under colonial
secretary, and Mr. George Whitley,
chief ministerial whip. This deputation
which represented the British Cotton
Association, some of the principal
chambers of commerce of Great Britain,
the various associations of labor and
capital, some of the chief magistrates
of Lancashire, and ot"er towns outside
of Lancashire was introduced by Lord
Derby, the lord-lieutenant of Lanca
shire. He was followed by the Duke of
Marlborough, who in a few pithy re
murks associated himself with the
movement. Mr. J. A. Hutton, vice
chairman of the council of the associa
tion, stated the case for the deputation.
He stated that the annual value of the
production of the cotton trade amount
ed to over 100,000,000 pounds sterling
($500,000,000), and that the capital di
rectly engaged represented over 400,
000,000 pounds sterling, or $2,000,000,
000. There was no need, he said, to la
bor the point that a trade of such im
portance vitally affected the welfare of
the country, and that any disaster to it
might be said to be a disaster to the
whole country. The cotton trade, he
went on to say, was in a very danger
ous position. The dangers were two
fold. In the first place, they got 75
per cent, of their raw material from
one country, and that they were conse
quently at the mercy of the weather in
one part of the world. It was there
fore quite evident that they ought to
aim at broadening the base of supply,
and if possible to do so within the
British Empire. The second danger to
which he called attention was that con
sumption was more or less overtaking
production. It was calculated that con
sumption in the British Empire was in
creasing at the rate of 400,000 bales per
annum, and Lancashire alone had in the
last year or so added something like
6,000,000 spindles to her spinning ca
pacity, which represented an increase
in consumption in Lancashire alone of
halt a million bales; that the United
States had increased their consumption
from 2,500,000 bales ten years ago to
4,000,000 bales at the present. It was
therefore clear that in a comparatively
short time the United States would re
quire the greater part of their own pro
duction. Whether they would get it
was of course another thing. For the
cotton would go to those who paid the
best price for it; that a scramble was
expected, nobody would deny. The
present position gave great anxiety to
those who were deeply interested in the
" 'In 1901 and 1902 a good many mills
had to run short time; in 1903 the bulk
of them had to run short time for four
months. The climax was reached in
1904 when the greater number of mills
ran short time eight months. He did
not think it was realized outside of
Lancashire how much suffering this en
tailed. Perhaps he could not indicate it
better than by saying that in many
cases two families had to be crowded
into one house. So long as they had
fluctuations of that sort, so long must
they remain in the unhappy position
they were now in. What was the crop
going to be? If it was anything less
than 12,000,000 bales, they would have
speculation again and short time. The
consequences of short time were very
serious. According to Mr. Macara,
who was generally recognized, he said,
as the greatest authority on cotton sta
tistics, three-quarter time meant a total
loss to capital and labor of 150,000
pounds a week ($750,000) to Lancashire
alone, and $20,000,000 a week to the
whole country (England).
" 'The association had made inquiries
a?l over the world in their search for
new sources of supplies, and they had
come to the conclusion that they must
have a country capable of producing
millions of hales to take the place of or
supplement the American supplies,
and that North Nigeria alone was the
only possible salvation for the cotton
trade. But here they were brought up
against the fact that North Nigeria
was for all practical purposes inaccessi
" 'Sir Alfred Jones urged the English
government to take a hand in helping
the British Cotton Growing Association.
Sir Alfred Jones is president of the
British Cottton Growers' Association.
Sir W. H. Holland, president of the
Associated Chamber? of Commerce,
said at their last meeting they had
passed strong resolutions to the same
effect. He said that any one who paid
a visit to the cotton manufacturing dis
trict of Lancashire and saw the large
number of new mills which were spring
ing up in every direction almost like
mushrooms, would be convinced that
the question of new sources of supplies
of raw cotton was more acute to-day
than ever before. The prime minister's
reply was, 'I doubt if ever deputation
came to a government bo important, so
almost pretentious, and so impressive
as this,' and then went on to review
the situation in full.'
THE SOUTH'8 CHANCK.
"Now, in view of these facts, does it
not seem the height of folly that the
South, owning a monopoly of the
world's supply of raw cotton, and hav
ing the possibilities of an unlimited in
crease in cotton production, should be
so indifferent to this, her grand oppor
tunity for fixing and maintaining a
price commensurate with tho world's
demand for raw cottonl It is a very
painful contrast between the attitude
of the English government to the Eng
lish cotton trade and our government to
tho American cotton trade. England is
not half so indebted to her cotton in
dustry for her financial welfare as
America is, to say nothing of the South.
It is a mark of the grossest ignorance,
not to say stupidity, on the part of the
Southern business men not to tnke the
proper view of their relation to the cot
ton industry in fixing and maintaining a
remunerative price. To sell our cotton
at ten cents a pound for next fall de
livery is to forestall the work of the
Southern Cotton Association and place
the consumers or purchasers of our cot
ton in a position to dictate the price.
"At a meeting of the executive com
mittee of the Southern Cotton Associa
tion held in Jackson, Mississippi, on
May 31st, the following resolution was
passed: 'Kesolved, That wo call upon
our members and the producers of cot
ton at large not to sell their actual cot
ton for future delivery, as we have ev
ery reason to believe and feel confident
that the price of cotton must advance
materially beyond the present fall quo
"In view of the article quoted from
the Lancashire paper, all that we have
to do in order to fix and maintain a fair
price is simply to refuse to take less.
And this may not be done, except by
and with the full co-operation of all
Southern business interests.
"According to Mr. Mutton, the world
will need 12,000,000 bales or more. It
has practically consumed 12,000,000 bales
in each of the years 1904 and 1905.
Witli only a partial organization we have
been able to maintain a price of slight
ly over 10 t-2 cents average. At least
2 1-2 cents above what we probably
would have obtained without an organ
"I hope every business man in the
State will read this article and study it
carefully and then decide as to whether
or not he can help in the great opportu
nity now presented to the South of
reaping abundant wealth from this, her
great staple crop in such pressing de
mand by the world at large.
"Stop selling cotton for fall delivery;
organize in every community for the
erection of proper warehouses and the
proper financing of the crop, so that we
may be in a position to supply the
world with cotton as it needs it at a
price satisfactory to us."
Resolutions of Respect.
Mr. Ambrose II. Martin, of Laurens
County, was identified with Watts Mills
Company from the moment that its or
ganization was undertaken. He co
operated heartily, liberally and dili
gently as one of its promoters in ob
taining the stock subscriptions. He
had won the confidence of his neighbors
and was justly looked upon by them as
a man of excellent, business foresight
and integrity, and so he was of great
service in contributing to the confidence
of the public necessary to the estab
lishment of the Watts Mills property.
His fellow directors valued his solid
worth, they estimated highly the sound
ness of his views of business proposi
tions and they enjoyed association with
him because they were sure of his
faithfulness to every trust.
Therefore, be it resolved by the Di
rectors of the Company, in annual ses
sion, May 22, 1900:
First, That they have lost by his
death a man of uncommon wisdom in
business affairs, who was guided by his
faith as a Christian man in the God of
his fathers, to whose will we bow.?
Aged as he was, he was attentive to
his duties, always responding promptly
to the obligations of his trust as a di
Second, We would testify to his loy
alty to his associates. As long as he
lived, we had no doubt of where he
stood with regard to any problem of
the mill's direction. He was the strong
friend of the management of the prop
erty, but more than that, he was first
of all true to the stock-holders, whom
he represented; hence, until death re
moved him, he had the absolute confi
dence of all the officers and owners in
terested in the property. We have lost
the helpful companionship of a straight
forward and candid gentleman.
Third, That this action of the direc
tors be recorded in the minute book,
printed in the county papers, and a
copy transmitted to his family as an
expression of our sympathy.

DISPENSARY SUIT DECIDED.
Laurens to Have Liquor, Whether the
People Wish it or Not.
Columbia, June 16.? Judge Hydrick
has handed down his decision in re
Wright vs. Ed L. Jones in which he re
versed the decision of the State board
This case was a proceeding growing
out of the dispensary election in Lau
rens County, held on January 9th, 1906,
under the Brice law. In this election
the majority of votes as counted was in
favor of no dispensary. A protest was
fded before the county board by Mr.
Wright and the county board held that
as so many irregularities existed and no
legal eletion had been held and ac
cepted, declared the one held void and
of no effect.
Both the dispensary and the anti-dis
pensary sides appealed to the State
board. The State board found certain
irregularities to have existed as a mnt
ter of fact in this election, but they
held that, as no fraud was charged or
shown to exist, the election should be
held as valid, and the decision of the
county board was accordingly reversed
and the dispensary must close.
A writ of certiorari was obtained from
Judge Hydrick, and argued before him
on April 26, in Columbia. He has sus
tained the ground of the petition that,
inasmuch as this irregularity did exist
as to the production of required regis
tration certificates and proof of pay
ment of taxes, no valid election was
held, and consequently reversed the
State board. The dispensary conse
quently will still continue to operate in

"I do not know that under a writ of
certiorari to the State board I have the
right to review the action of the county
board, especially as I have not before
me the records ujwn which they based
their findings and conclusions. Cer
tainly I have no right to review their
findings of fact.
"They found as matters of fact, and
certified same' to the State board as
follows: 'After careful investigation
and tabulation of the returns we find
so many Irregularities in the various
boxes, such as voting outsido the right
precincts, not demanding registration
certificates, neglecting to take neces
sary oaths, etc., that the county board
of canvassers for Laurens county de
cided that the most and fairest manner
of disposing of the matter is to declare
that there has been no legal election,'
and they declared accordingly. They
also certified as follows: 'All of the al
legations contained in the appended pe
tition have been found to be incorrect,
besides numerous irregularities in other
boxes not enumerated in the petition of
"Even if I had the right to review
their action in this proceeding it does
not appear to what extent there was
'voting outside of the right precincts,
not demanding registration certificates;'
nor does the nature or the extent of
the 'numerous other irregularities not
enumerated in the petition' appear.
"The great object in elections is to
ascertain the will of the people and
when that is expressed in a free and
fair election the courLs will not defeat
it on account of irregularities or even
illegalities which do not appear to have
affected the result.
"But when they arc of such char
acter and extent as to have it doubtful
whether the result has not been af
fected and especially whon it appears
that illegal votes have been cast suffi
cient in number to affect the result and
the i>oll3 cannot be pinged of them it
would be a travesty on jwpular govern
ment to sustain the election."

MAJ. BLACK PLACED
UNDER PEACE BOND.
He Makes Frank Statement and Waives
Preliminary Hearing?Mr. Lyon
Tho affair between Mr. John Black,
of the dispensary board of directors
and Mr. J. Fr?ser Lyon of the investi
gating committee, which began on Fri
day, June 1st, by a threatened attack
un the latter by the former, has been
closed by Mr. Black being placed under
a peace bond for $1,000 and Mr. Lyon
The hearing on Wednesday was held
in tho court of Magistrate Moorman,
having been postponed from tho day af
ter the trouble. It was set for6 o'clock,
but about 2.30 o'clock Mr. Black, with
his attorney, appeared before the court
and without any formality waived a
preliminary hearing and simply left the
disposal of the matter to the discretion
of the court.
Mr. Black made a brief statement in
which he said that he was anxious to
avoid any further discussion of the af
fair, and for that reason waived a pre
liminary hearing, and that while he, of
course, did not want to be pluced under
a peace bond, and had no idoa of not
keeping the peace, he submitted the
matter entirely to the discretion of the
court, and would furnish bond or not as
the court decided. So far as he vas
concerned, he said, the matter had
The magistrate announced that be
thought it best that Mr. Black should
be placed under a bond to keep the
peace in the sum of $1,000, but that so
far as he could sec Mr. Lyon had done
nothing for which he should be placed
under bond. Mr. Black volunteered the
statement that he agreed with the
court that Mr. Lyon should not. be
placed under a peace bond. Mr. Lyon
was not present.
Mr. Black immediately entered into
the bond in the required amount with

Impulse and Law.
(From the Charleston Post.)
Director Black, of the State dispen
sary board, was so incensed at Repre
sentative J. Fr?ser Lyon of the Legis
lature investigating commission, that
he had an impulse to "blow him up."
But he didn't.
Governor Hey ward was so incensed
at the lawless disposition of Director
Black that he had an impulse to remove
him from office. But he didn't.
Director Black has expressed regret
for his impulse. When Governor Hey
ward has expressed regret for his im
pulse the record of this interesting in
cident will be complete, and we may
pass on to the next chapter with light
hearts and satisfied consciences, se
renely contemplating the majesty of
If Director Black had carried his im
pulse into action and had slain Repre
sentative Lyon, we have not the slight
est doubt that Governor Heyward would
have removed Director Black from of
fice?provided the Attorney General ad
vised him tho law was on his side and
the exhibition of the corpus delicti was
made before him. The Chief Executive
of the State has shown his stern deter
mination to go as far in upholding the
law as the individual will go in its
breach. Impulse is met with impulse,
and we are justified in concluding that
action would be met with action. If
Mr. Lyon had been killed Mr. Black
would have been removed from office,
without benefit of clergy.
While I). C. Heyward is Governor

ernor Hcyward is likely to be cross
The dispensary investigating commit
tee has again given evidence of its un
derstanding of its own functions and
appreciations of its limitations, in ab
staining from any prosecution of the
director who threatened to kill one of
its members. It was no part of the
committee's duty to appear before the
Governor against Major John Black,
who had menaced the life of Repre
sentative Lyon, because the latter had
undertaken to investigate the official
acts of the former. The committee dis
charged its full duty when it reported
the circumstances to the Governor, and
it was for the Governor to determine
what should be done to uphold the dig
nity of the law. The committee's busi
ness is to investigate the management
of the dispensary and it continues to do
that in the face of difficulty and dan
ger. It is the business of the Governor
to execute the laws.

Is heard daily from old and youn^r, rich and poor. Did you over stop and consider
the cause of this remark? We will venture to say nine cases out of ten ai'0
caused by improper digestion. This, or other symptoms of Indigestion such as
nervousness, nausea, heart-burn, Hour stomach, flatulency and despondency,
should be a warning to you who are in danger of having indigestion, the great
est enemy of American health to-day, fasten its merciless fangs on your health..
Remember, "A Stitch in time saves nine", and a bottle of the celebrated
Kellum's Sure Cure for Indigestion ha* saved untold misery to people in many
parts of this broad land, by caring them permanently of this miserable disease*

by causing the digestive organs to perform their functions. Nature being such
a great rectifier of its own ills, with the assistance of this powerful medicine,
gives you a healthy stomach and removes indigestion and its symptoms perma
