The daily press has had much to say
concerning the failure of insurance

Can it be expected that these insur

ed law before it is in print and avail
able?. True, the Acts were printed in
the daily papers, but the law does not
require people to read papers. If the
General Assembly pass an Act authoriz
ing the State papers to act as its agents
for the dissemination of its proceed
ings, and compensating them therefor,
that would be a different matter. But
can the State authorities expect obedi

Newspaper reports have it that Sena

view of Senator 80ft Davis' whirlwind
entrance into that august body, this is
a commendable policy. We congratu
late the junior Senator, but hope he
will not be mistaken for a dummy.
Several newspapers over* the State

expression from the Anderson Daily

"If Mr. C. C. Featherstone will defer
the attempt to realize hia ambition to
be governor- a most worthy ambition,
for which nobody can censure him?he
will do the cause of prohibition much
more good this year than he could do
by running, and he will make himself
invincible twb years hence."
This, of course, is an honest opinion
and demands respect; but Mr. Feather
stone's recent announcement shows
that b-'Is firmly convihfced that now is
?he opportune time for a prohibition
campaign, and that success is assured.
But, even if this he not the csse, where
and how could Mr. Featherstone "do
the cause of prohibition more good"
than on the stump?
AT FIRST GLANCE.
While not, sufficiently converstan
with local facts and conditions to deal
at length with such a subject, and do it
justice, the writer wishes very briefly
to give a few of his first impressions, as
nearly as possible, upon becoming iden
tified with this city and county. De
spite the fact that he has received the
warmest of welcomes, and the hearti
est, most genuine handshakes from all
he has met, he is still comparatively a
stranger, and is therefore enabled to
view the situation uninfluenced and un
biased, by long residence here. Neces
sarily he is as yet unable to write any
thing concerning the county, so this
article pertains to Laurens city only.
Immediately upon arrival in the city
we were forcibly impressed "by the
spirit of change, new life, improve
ment and progressiveness. This, at
first blush, seemed rather strange, in
view of the recent money panic and the
fears entertained by many that its
worst effects would be felt this coming
year. But upon investigation it is
found that Laurens has not been hurt
by this business depression like many
of her sister towns. Business men here
attribute this fact to the conservative
policy pursued by her men of affairs.
There is a wide distinction between
wild expenditure of money and un
natural growth and conservative, well
founded advance. Yet it is altogether
possible to have an overdose of con
servatism. We repeat that this spirit
of advance and improvement is especi
ally noticeable and commendable just at
this time. And the manifestations of
this spirit are so palpable and subntan
tial as not to be mistaken.
Among the numerous evidences of
progress is the expenditure by the city
of $25,000 for paving the public square
and the sidewalks of the main streets
and approaches. This contract was let
fgut .>umk,v,p"'k mrok?ia*AXW*c/iftd itoifefl*
facturing Company, of Chattanooga,
Tenn., has the contract and they are
noted for the efficiency and durability
of their work. The curbstones to be
used on the sidewalks and around the
court house have been purchased from
the Cold Point Granite Company, of
Newberry, whose quarry is in Laurens
county. This one improvement will
prove of inestimable worth to the city,
serving, as it will undoubtedly do, as a
nucleus for other expenditures by indi
viduals, as well as the city. The lay
ing of vitrified brick on the square will
make it impossible for our progressive,
public-spirited merchants to allow their
property to become dilapidated.
The spirit of a community may very
safely be guaged by its disposition of
matters pertaining to the schools of
that community. The mere mention of
the fact that the contract for a $35,000
school building has been let and work is
already in progress is sufficient evi
dence of the local attitude toward such
matters. Mr. E. L. Hertzog, of Spar
tanburg, has this contract and pre
liminary work on the grounds was be
gun week before last. A magnificent
piece of property, valued now at about
$9,000, was bought for the graded
school alte. This will be greatly en
hanced when the city improves the
streets upon which it is located, And
it is needless to add that all the adjoin
ing property becomes much more valu
able. One improvement in a city does
not stop with itself; it forces others.

mentous steps ever taken by the city of

$ Our Men of Genius. |
I WILLIAM, ERNEST LUCAS.
(n the death of the banker-poet, Ed
mund Clarence Stedman, not only New
York, but our entire country, experi
enced a great loss in a literary way?as
in the death of that wonderful musical
genius, Edward MacDowell, whose mu
sical career waa cut short by the cruel
scythe of Death before he could enjoy
the fruits of his labor in composition or
reap the praise of an appreciative popu
lace, did we suffer a great loss in a
musical way. So, also, did America
lose, as well as Baltimore, in the death
of that Southern poet, James Ryder
Randall, whose one poetic gem "Mary
land, My Maryland" is brilliant enough
to place him beside our poets in the
Hall of Fame.
And in the death of William Ernest
Lucas, manufacturer, of Laurens, S.
C., which occurred very near the same
time as that of Randall, not only his
State, but the entire cotton belt region
of our country has experienced a great
loss in a mercantile way. In the pass
ing out of such men of genius as these
our country loses more than we take
j cognisance of in the great push and
stir of this Twentieth century rush.
Since Mr.Lucas is least widely known,
though beginning to be recognized and
appreciated as a man of mark in his
own State and in cotton mill circles, it
is to him this sketch is devoted, with
the hope that his memory may be linked
with those of Stedman, and Randall,
the poets, and KacDowcll, the musi
cian, for hin poems were the construc
tion of beautiful mill villages, and his
music was the throbbing machinery of
the mill, the great heart of the village
whose musical vibrating chords were to
his soul the sublimest of musical melo
dies, as with whir and hum his poems
in cloth were sent forth to the world.
That he looked beyond the mere ma
chinery and labor of his work is un
questioned by those who knew him in
timately, and that he was a genius in
his line of work had begun to be fully
recognized, and not only a genius with
unusual gifts of mind, but a reformer
with unusual gifts of soul, for he was
not content with running cotton mills
according to the laws of his predeces
sors, nor even of his contemporaries;
but he stood firmly for all that was for
the best good for his mill, his stock
holders twnd his null people, and his
greatest endeavor was to come in closer
touch and sympathy with his mill peo
ple and make them feel that they were
something in his eyes beyond machinery
?rather an integral part in God's great
scheme of work, the controling of loom
and spindle to weave the fabric that
clothes a nation.
For the uplifting and bettering of the
condition of his mill people physically,
he saw to it personally that their homes
and the mill were comfortable and the
entire village in a sanitary condition.
Far back in the Lucas family there was
a Lucas ' England who was a famous
architect, and it must have been from
this ancestor that Mr. Lucas inherited
his taste and wonderful talent in the
construction of buildings. He was the
architect of his mills to a great extent,,
flic Waits Mill, and this latter is a
model cotton mill village, so beautifully
situated, so sunny and clean, with its
splendid mill, its neat, comfortable
homes, commodious store and offices
and pretty school building, far nicer
and better built than most of the free
school buildings in our mountain towns
of Tennessee, and I daresay far nicer
also than the free school buildings in
many of the villages of South Carolina.
But his work for the betterment of
mill people did not stop with their physi
cal needs, but wont beyond to their
mental and spiritual needs. When
president of the Laurens Mill he had a
public reading room for them, and for
several winters before he gave up that
mill he had a Lyceum course for their
benefit. T was my great pleasure to
attend ( , of these lectures, given in
a large h dl over the store one by the
State f. dogist of North Carolina, and
the oth r on Robert E. Lee by Prof.
Montague, of Greenville, S. C, and I
felt that such an effort as this, done in
love and good fellowship, without
thought of self-emblazonment, was in
its way equal to the ministry- for, first
educate; then the ground of the mind
is fit soil for Christianizing. That his
mill people appreciated his efforts in
their behalf was fully shown during
the Milliken-Lucas contest, when Mr.
Lucas was elected president for another
year, when they thought he was to ba
put out, They bought the nicest chair
they "ould find in Laurens and went
that night, two or three hundred strong,
to present it to him. This gift he ap
preciated as mivh as any token of
friendship and sympathy that he re
ceived during tho long-drawn-out liti
gation between Milliken and himself,
when again laying aside all thought of
self he stood for his stockholders and
the good of all Southern mills in the
reduction of commission rates. In this
he was as much a reformer as was
Martin Luther when he risked his life
for tho translation of the Bible so that
the common people could read it, for
Mr. Lucas said at the time whon every
thing seemed going against him: "The
principle I stand tov is right, find even
if I go under it will stand and some
day be accepted." Of such material
was ever reformers and martyrs to just
causes made, while they rarely live to
reap the fruit of their reformation or
enjoy tho praise and appreciation due
them for their self-sacrifice; hut, like
Mr. Lucas, pasa out of life when thoir
lives seem most valuable to the world;
while others who stand for nothing save
mediocrity, accomplishing nothing for
themselves nor others, live on to old
age. The mystery of this we cannot
solve, but this we know: "The grand
current of events runs not downward or
backward- The spirit within these
wheels of time, turning first this way
and that, still moves them forward
and to blessed ends.''
"Though around our path some form
Of mystery ever lte?,
And life is like the cairn and storm
That checkers earth and skies
Through all its mingling joy and dread
Permit us, Holy One,
By faith to soe the golden thread
Of Thy grpat purpose run."
A,few years ago Mr. Lucas said: "A
man had better die at forty, and ac
complish something good for mankind
and tho world, than to live on to old
age and accomplish nothing." To bun
"Better to strive and climb,
And never reach t!.e goal,
Then to drift plong with time?
An aimless, worthless soul."
Not long ago, when some one re
marked to him about some improve
ments he was making in and around the
residence in which.he lived, he said:
"Yes, I want to leave it attractive and
comfortable for the next mill president
to enjoy," little dreaming that he would
leave it so soon. His great heart and
tender thoughtfulness was shown in!
another very touching way when his j
will was read, and it was found that a
legacy was loft to his son's black mam
my, that as she had so faithfully and
lovingly cared for them, he wanted her
to be cared for the rest of her life. A
beautiful keynote to the man's whole
[ character was this little deed of loving
remembrance. It hath been said:
"Strive to live well; tread in the up
And rather count thine actions than thy
When thou hast lived among us here
For every day well spent I count a year.
Live well; and then how soon soe'er
Thou art of age to claim eternity."
And so, passing out into the Great
Beyond at the age of forty-four, Mr.
Lucas has accomplished more than
most men at three score years and ten,
and is surely of age to claim eternity.
He has left to himself monuments in
brick and stone, but beyond all else he
has left a monumental example for
good to the world and an imperishable
memory of his loving good deeds in the
hearts of his mill people, his relatives
and friends, and I trust in time his
name will be honored in the heart of
every native of South Carolina and our
entire South, and it is with great ad
miration for the wonderful achieve
ments of this man of genius that I
send from Tennessee this little tribute
to his memory.
