RAILROAD IVY CROSS ANCHOR.
The movement to build a railroad
from Spartailburg via Cross Anchor
and Intermediate, points to Clinton and
thence to LauroilS should be given un
divided support from every citizen in
Laurens and 01 in ton as WOll as the
other point; interested. All of this
intervening territory is occupied by
substantial and progressive people,
peoplo who need and appreciate the
advantages of railroad connection and
they should have it. Laurons, Clin
ton and Spnrtanburg would be as
greatly hoaofltlod and they should
put Iholr shoulder to the wheel to
attain the desired end.
'I h.0 Advertiser d008 not grow on
thuaiastlc over dreams of building one
rr.ilroad alongside of another. but
when it comes to opening up new ter
ritory for trade, expansion and devel
opment, WO believe in expending ev

of immense benefit to us all and the
people along the line should get to

8 STATE PRESS COMMENT. 8
The South Carolina Situation.
Dim suggestions of a rainbow are
forming abovo tho political clouds
that for three years have been roll
ing over the Palmetto State. Rleas
Ism Is still dominant, but seems to
be diminishing temporally In in
tensity, although in the race for the
United states sonatorship, nine
months hence, lines will be as sharp
ly and bitterly drawn a sever before.
In that election Ulease will either be
shorn of tho powers incident to pub
lie ofllCO or will be sent to Washington.
If his candidacy succeeds, he will be
out of the State, however much Influ
ence he may still wield; if he is re
tired to private life, he can have no
ofllcos with which to reward his
friends and no official power with
which to punish his enemies. There
i is but one Bleaso in South Carolina,
and OVOH wore bis most trusted lieu
tenant to be promoted to the govorn
Blllp, that man would lack much of
being a second Bloaso.
It Is almost certain that the sole
candidate against Senator Smith In
Ills campaign for re-election to a sec
ond tei'.n in the United States senate
will he the present chief magistrate
of the Palmetto State. There has been
much talk of Inducing Representative
Asbury F. Lover, Captain Lamb's suc
cessor as chairman of the national
house of representatives, and the most
efficient member of South Carolina's
house delegation, to enter the race, but
it seems at this time unlikely that he
will do so. As things now stand, Le
ver Is the logical successor to Sena
tor Tlllman, who is in ill-health, ami
who will, in all probability, never
again seek election to the scutate. Le
ver is a self-made man, a farm boy,
who, by unfngging energy and quick
acceptance of every opportunity, has
become one of the strongest men in
South Carolina politics. A college gra
duate, a man of a high degree of in
tellectual capacity. Lever possesses
a duality somowhat rare in South Ca
rolina now ability for constructive
public service. II" is ihm;her a dema
gog nor an agitator; he said last week
that he often thinks that South Caro
lina is politics ridden, as it undoubt
edly is. lie stands for the upbuilding
of the State through improvement of
tho conditions of country life and Un
scientific development of South Caro
lina's agricultural potcutialtlos.
Blease will have the light of his
life getting into tho sonnte, although
he will receive aid from rather un
expected sources. Senator Ellison
Durant Smith, the apostle of the high
est price for cotton doctrine, is an In
vincible rough-and-tumble stump
speaker, who can easily hold his own
with Blease, especially before rural
audiences, for Smith is extremely pop
ular with the farmers find can point to
some achievement for their welfare,
Bleaso cannot. Forecasts of the out
come at a time so far removed from
the primary as this would be absurd.
A great number of ltleaseltes have
undoubtedly boon wonncd from their
former faith and yet, on the other
hand, a considerable' number of
South Carolinians will vote for
Blease because they either do not
like Smith or believe that it
would be better to foist him up
on the scutate than have him
in South Carolina. Moreover, the act
that Tlllman Is so vigorously opposed
to Bleaso will transfer to Bloaso the
votes of many of the dyed in the wool
nntl-Tillmanltos, who rejoice to find
any opportunity, direct or indirect, to
rebuke and repudiate tho Pitchfork
No matt cm- what the result of the
senatorial primary may be, the situ
ation in South Carolina will be decld
ly Improved after next August. Wheth
er he shall thereafter lie Senator
Hloase or Citizen Bloaso, he will never
so Injure South Carolina's name and
fame or Impede her progress as Gov
ernor Blease has done and Is doing.
Blease has illustrated to the extreme
the possibilities of abuse of the gov
ernorship of any American State.?
Richmond Times Dispatch.
Decay of Country Churches.
A good dor I has been said lately
about the decay of country churches.
There is a reason for this, (for that
it. is a fact cannot be denied) and that
is the removal to town of families and
the drifting away of the young people
especially) leaving the church to die
out with the dying old folks that are
left behind. But a very line suggestion
has been made, which, if adopted, will
surely stop the exodus to the city and
will make for a higher social life in
the country; and this Is tho return to
the old times, when the pastor and
the school teacher lived alongside of
the church. Place the country school
and the country church In close rela
tion. Put the parsonage and the
teacher's home side by side with these
and you have a splendid "civic center"
for that community that will give It
'omethlng of the city or community
life that all men crave. Necessarily
there will follow the debating society
for the boys ami the book club for
the girls. Tho fanners will organize
their discussion assemblies. There
will be a singing uehool and a choir
meeting. Tho church will then be
eonio a gathering place for the entire
community. A strong attraction for
the people of all classes will be the
result. The church will grow. The
farms win dcvelope. Tho school will
prosper and tho community will bo
an Ideal one for real BOCiai happiness.
Mow many suh "settlements" are
there in South Carolina? It is trie
now that the par,tors of our country
churches for il e most, part live in the
towns, and that there are very few
country churches open every Sabbath,

that that would he enough to damn
both of them In the eyes of the peo
ple. But Blease had too much political

and McLaurln is wise In withdraw

detail in denying that Blcascisin is.

goes on to say that the governor has ?
stolen much of the old lime Tlllman \
"What McLaurln says about 'fac-!
tlonallsm making South Carolina a
little Mexico' is all too true," the sen
ator continues, "and I agree fully with
what he Bays about the necessity for
the good and true men of both fac
tions getting together and electing a
governor who will be governor of all
the people; and not the governor of
his friends' only.
"McLaurln has always been a
shrewd politician, and he realizes
fully as all thoughtful men must
realize, that the loud-mouthed shoot
ers tit the Blease banquet are 'office
seekers' and nothing more.
Might be Belter.
"The statement?'1 don't suit them;
they don't suit me, so I had just as
well be a man. That is better than
being governor'?is very, very admir
able. But I would have liked it bet
ter in this form: T do not suit them.
They do not suit Ime, so I will bo a
man hereafter and my own master- -
not a slave to ambition. That Is bet
tor than being governor.
"McLaurln has stich great ability
that it is a pity bis brains can ho of
no service to the people In a public
career now that he has come to his
senses. I agree with him Unit his.
political career is ended, but he i-; still

aro many avenues open to him for do

no longer permit me to do, Bad mal. ?
amends for his past sins and blun
"If I had been able to make even
three speeches in Sonin Carolina last
year, I do"not believe Blease would
ever have been elect..;d governor, and
if 1 were able now or dared to maka
speeches he could not he o:octeJ to
tho senate. Because I have faith in
my own honesty of purpose and pa
triotism and think I could show be
yond possibility of doubt that he is
unlit to come to Washington as a
senator from South Carolina and is
nor more to be trusted than was Mc
Laurin. I would undertake to do this
anyway had not the physicians, all of
them, warned me that it would result
in my death while speaking. I am
willing to die for the State if neces
sary, but I realize only too sadly that
my strength now is not equal to the
task and I can no longer play the
role of the gladiator on the hustings.
It may bo that the good God will re
store imy strength so that I will be
able to take the risk. But if McLatt
rin, as a penance, will undertake the
work, there will be no need what
ever for me to speak a word. All
the moral force I possess?and I real
ize I have a great deal of it among
my fellow citizens?will be exerted In
this tight for decency In State politics."
