"Ordinat ily I iay no attention to
a newsipaper article, but-"! That is
the accepted formn these days for ag
grieved citizents to take a "fling" at
the newspape's when Iteir' own deeds
have appeared rather ambiguous in
der tle white light of publi'ity. Ev
ory now aid then one of these long
"statements to the public" appears it
the newspapers with the little sneer
to it. As a general thing they
are written by men whoso rec
ords cannot bcai' anty contiderable
amount of exposur'e,. men who have
had reason to wince under the indict
icilt of the -very Iapers whom they
try to belittle. It doesn't hurt
the newspapers, but t'he impres
sion created of the writer is bad.
Newspapers, when- they are in error,
are glad to make corrections. Our ad
vice is. if thte itecessity arises, make a
dignifled correction or aslk the editor
to make tite correction himself.

Washington, Dec. 19.-After two
days of hot words which culminated
today In exchange of invitation to
personal combat between Representa
tires lieflin, of Alabama, and Moon,
of Tennessee, the house adopted a
special rule to consider legislation
for reforms demanded by the post
otlice depart ment in connection withl)
thle annilpostal a ppropriation1 bill.
A defection of demllocr-ats, from the
leadeis yesterday defeated a similar

The rule was passed late today with
the provisions for cutting postmast

A speech by Representative Moon
after defeat of tile original rule, ill
wiiil 1he intiatad that somec "rail
road influence" had operated to shift

nounced Mr. Mloon's statement as
"false and untrue." Ir. Moon chal

Mr. Helhin exprcseed his willingness
to do so. The LWO representatives

each other when lhalf a dozen men -

Washington, Dec. 18.-The interstate
commerce commission today granted
in part the application of the eastern
railroads for advance freight rates.
The filed rate schedule is to become
effectivo on ten days' notice in the
eastern classifleation territory.
The commission granted the east
ern railroads' application for a five
per cent advance excepting on certain
speciled cominodites. Commisisoners
larlan and Clemets disseted. The
decision permits advances on cement,
starch, brick, tile, clay and plaster.
No advances were ierimitted on these
commodities under the August ,1st de
Joint rates between the olllcial
classifaction territory to territory
south of tho Potomac and Ohio rivers
and east of the Mississippi may be in
creased not more than five per cent.
* Interstate rates to and from New
England may be increased five per
cent. While .the present existing dif
ferential among various Atlantic porlts
is preserved, rates between any two
of them may be Increased five per
cent. Rail and like rail rates in the
great Lake region are not changed.
The decision said: While w. differ
as to the relative importance attached
to various considerations presented,
we agree in conclusion that by virtue
of the conditions obtaining at present,
it Is ecessary that the carrier's rev
epue be sunpleneted by increases
throughout the official classification
Whatever war's consequences may
be, we must recognize the fact that it
is a calamity without precedent and
by it the world's commerce has been.
disarranged and thrown into con
fusion. The means of transportation
are a fundamental and indispensable
agency of our industrial life, and for
the common weal should be kept
abreast of public requirements.

Union of Forces Formed at Spartan.
burg. To Work Together.
Spartanburg, Dec. 21.--There was
a union of forces of the advocates of
the Statewide prohibition ,here to
night and the result is a solid front
with harmony throu.4ho-it, according
to a stateIntN given out after a
lengthy conU-ene; between men. 'err
of the headquarters committee of the
Anti-saloon league and a delegation
of the league. The conference brought
agreement among the prohibitionists
where until today there had been dif
forences and disagreement as to the
best method of procedure. There
were those who hold that the ap
prouching session of tile legislatur'
should be urged to pass a Statewilde
bill without referring it to the pdople,
while others advocated submitting the
question to the people of the State.
For weeks two wings of the league
haVe been working with a common
end in view but with different ideas
as to how it should be 'realized. This
state of affairs brought many of the
leaders in the cause on a hurry trip
to Spartanburg this afternoon to con
for with Rev. J. L. Harley, superin
tendent of the league, and members
of the headquarters 'committee.. .
As a result of this meeting a mo
tiori was made by the Rev. J. L. 'Har
ley. that a committee oX ten be ap
pointed, composed of five members
from tile headquarters comimttee of
the Anti-saloon league and -five otheis
to meet in Columbia coincident with
the assembly of :the legislature to
press the passage of a -statewide' pro
hibition law to be ratIfied in a State
election, the election to-,be held dur
ing the year 1915, -and that the head
qiuarters committee of the Anti-sa
Loon league be requested to have tile
bill drafted and in readiness to be
presented to the legislature, in the
meantime petitions be circulated
throughout the state.
It. wa's agreed 'by" th^ c1cnfCrne
that thb ite,. S. L. Harle 'And' Dr.
0. E. Burts serve as ex-officio mem
bers in adidtion to the tel. The
