Why do the supporters of Qov.

There are several reasons why order
ought to be preserved at the meeting
next Wednesday. The best reason we
know of Is that the government stands
for law and order above everything

We have absolutely no criticism
to make of a man who thinks that
Qov, Hleasc is a model after whom he
would have his son pattern. The only
thing that we can find fault with In
such a man Is his discernment. Ho
ought to he aide to see better.

Although there was a feeble attempt
at howling down In the court house
Monday and a more effective attempt

hope that there will be no other such

campaign next Wednesday. When a
crowd attempts to howl down, either
of two motives are behind the act:
they do not care to give a square deal
or they fear that the speaker will
say something detrimental to the
cause they themselves ropnrsent.

DIAL FOB SENATOR,
As the time for the Oral primary
election rapidly approaches, it seems
to us that the attention of the people
ought to be directed tome to the race
for Untted State? senator. Hon. N. B.
Dial and Hon. W. Ja?per Talbert have
beer thoroughly canvassing the state
lev the past few weeks and it has been
notable that the campaign has been
conducted upon a plane possibly hlgh
?r than any other campaign of recent
years. They have neither dealt in
personalities between themselves nor
toward Senator Tlllman. They have
been content, end properly so, with
a statesmanlike presentation of their
causes, and Judging from the atten
tion they received here last week, they
have made a decided Impression all
over the state. Particularly Is this
so of Mr. Dial, a son of Laurcns and
one whom we are all proud of. Al
though when he first announced him
self for the senate his friends doubted
the wisdom of It, the great progress
lie has made, an evidenced by the on
couraglng reports received from every
section of the state, has given us a
right to believe that In- stands a fine
chance of being elected. Placing his
Claims before the people on his past
record as a "doer" rather than a "talk
I I," Mr. Dial has made a plain, busi
nesslike campaign, convincing tbo
people that the time Is past for South
Carolinians to discuss dead topics and
minor issues, lie stands for economy,
progress and prosperity and wishes to
see this state enjoy the benefits of
l:'-r unbounded natural resources and
great opportunities. Though not say
ing so himself and possibly not giving
the matter a thought, Mr. Dial, Is un
consciously an exponent of that pro
grosslvetiesa as set forth In the last
democratic platform. He is a thor
ough democrat, but takes the plat
form as a matter of course, giving
most of his attention when dealing
with It to the matter of tariff reduc
tion, lie has had considerable direct
experience with the workings of the
tariff and is confident that if It Is re
duced that the south will reap enor
mous but righteous benefits.
Why You Should Not Pull
Next week we expect to discuss the
different methods of saving the corn
crop. This Is a great big subject and
one to which Southern farmers need
to givo more thought and more In
vestigation. The practice of "fodder
pulling" is still general over most of
the South. This Is practically a South
ern practice?very few people In oth
er sections do It?and, to put It plain
ly, it is the most wasteful and extrav
agant of all the common methods of
saving the corn crop.
In no Instance, to our knowledge,
have accurate experiments failed to
show that the practice Is unprofitable
This is why Southern farmers should
quit it. It does not par. Why keep it
We know the objections urged
against other methods of handling the
corn crop that corn cut up is heavy
to handle, that stock will not eat the
(large stalks, that CUt-up corn often
molds in the shock, that shredded
foddci sometimes molds. All these ob
jections arc of moi'0 or less force, just
as are the objections against, leaving
nil the stalks and blades in the fields
and pasturing them off that this
practice means a waste of feed, and
that, In some cases, the trampling of
the land injures it or the crops sown
on It. There Is something in each of
these claims, but not enough In any
or all of them to justify fodder-pulling.
If a man can have his corn stover
cut up or shredded, he can get more
feed at less cost than by pulling fod
der. The molding of corn In tbo shock
Is almost Invariably caused by poor
shocking or by cutting too green:
corn cut at the proper stage Is one of
the easiest crops t,i cure. Shredded
coin stover will keep perfectly 'f it
is dry when shredded and is protect
ed afterwards. The man who has no
facilities for handling cut-up corn can
get more roughage from the same ex
penditure of labor by pasturing his
corn field and growing legumes for
hay than by pulling fodder; and he
will also have more corn.
Fodder pulling, as usually done, re
duces the yield of corn sufficiently to
pay for all the feed obtained in the
fodder. The labor expended in pull
ing fodder Is usually great enough
to produce an equal feeding value in
some other crop. These are demon
strated facts, and no amount of the
orizing or arguing on the part of our
fodder-pulling friends can change
them. Taken together, they mean that
the man who pulls fodder pays twice
for what he gets?once If the decrease
of bis corn crop, and o- In the labor
expended In doing the work.
This, In short, Is why the practice
should be abandoned; it is wasteful
and inconsistent with the best farm
ing. It wastes labor and feed.
Southern farmers are rapidly learn
ing how to grow corn; let them give
a little thought now to the other big
corn problem, and learn how to get
the most out of the crop after they
have grown it.?Progressive Farmer.

always work for the poor man be
cause the rich man can take care of
himself. Ho favors voting bonds for
road Improvement, but is considerably
shy of that mule tax proposition put
up by Mr. K. W. Copeland, as the poor
man will pay most of this tux. He is
opposed to the measure fathered by
W. H. Hand for taking the election of
the superintendent of education out
of the peoule's hands. He is in favor
of the Torrens land bill, and helped
to tight for it in tho last legislature.
Mr. Irby discussed at length the mill
mergers and their persecution and
robbery of tho people. He said the
hankers and mills connived together
to control the price of cotton and that
this ought to be stopped. As a rem
edy for conditions he favored among
other things tho state warehouse sys
tem. Mr. Irby expressed in unmis
takable terms his preference for Colo
L, Blease for governor.
Dr. .1. H. Miller gave an account of
his stewardship and asked for the con
tinued support of the voters. He said
no personal interest would come be
tween him and tho best interests of
the state, he always stood for the best
Interests of the whlto people of South
Carolina. He Is opposed to the Hand
education bill spoken of several times
above. He favors a uniform system
of school books. Ho favors good
roads. He supported a bill to take
$100,000 of the fertilizer tax to give
It to Winthrop. Dr. Miller said ho al
ways stood and fought for what ho
considered for the best Interest of the
county, but that he did not believe In
giving the poor man more than what
he was entitled to. He favored giv
ing the rich and the poor man both
a fair showing. When he closed somo
one, as reported above, asked him as
to his preference for governor and ho
stated that he was for Ira B. Jones,
Mr. W. R. Rlchey said that this was
the third time that he had run for the
house and that he hoped he would he
elected this time. The tax question,
he said, was the moat vital question
befoie tho people today. He declared
that compentent men should be sent
to Columbia to sie that the assess
ments over the state were put on
an equal basis, as the western part
of the state was paying more than its
Just share. He favored giving the old
soldiers all that the state could pos
sibly afford to give them. He favored
good roads and thought that now Is
the opportune time to make a fight
for national aid for roads. As to
the labor law, he said that it could not
he Improved on because of federal
constitutional limitations, but that if
the people would act squarely by each
other that the present laws would
BUflico, He Is In favor of common
school education, state warehouse sys
; tem and two cents railroad fare. As
to the governorship, he said that he
was a personal friend of Hlease,
thought that he was being persecuted
and considered tho governor honest
so lie would vote for him. "If Qov.
Blease pardoned Wash Hunter, that Is
no sign why Ira H. Jones should be
governor of South Carolina", said Mr.
Mr. Joseph G. Sullivan was the only
man that complimented tho voters
with a prepared speech. Ho said he
was opposed to all Cliques and Com
binations, that he would go to Colum
bia with unchained feet and unbound
hands. He said the taxes are too high,
that the colleges are getting too much
money to the detriment of the com
mon schools and that the negro
schools are getting too much money.
He favors 2 cents railroad fares, pub
lication of factory cotton holdings and
other mill statistics, better roads by
federal aid and Torrens system of land
registration. He is In favor of the
state ware house system. He Is also
for Cole L. Hlease for governor, de
claring that he has lost many friends
by allegiance to his excellency.
Mr. Sullivan was the last speaker
on the program.

McBee to Become County Seat of New County
The people in the surrounding sections are working to that end, and there is little
doubt but that within the next months McBee will be the county seat of a new county.
The section meets the constitutional requirements as regards population, wealth, etc. The
nearest courthouse is twenty miles, the next nearest twenty-five miles, and the next twenty
eight; giving ample room for a large county with McBee as the county seat, and railroads
radiating from the county seat into all parts of the county.
Land Values Will Double
The prices of land in and around McBee will gradually go up as the event of McBce's
becoming the county seat approaches, at which time they will reach to double or treble
what they now are. As yet we have not advanced the prices of our land, which now range
from $15 to $25 an acre, but we will be forced to do so sooner or later. Don't wait until
we do! Procrastination has killed many an opportunity. Insure yous future success while
