LAURENS, S. C., NOV. 9, 1921.
Sen. 'Watson, of Georgia, is agal
making a scene in the United Stat(
Senate. The biggest part of his tin
seems to be taken up1) in creatin
scenes and criticizing somebody c
something about which he knows vei
little or is lprejudiced t great (leal. 'Th
senator, with one of the keenest iv
tellects in congress, acts like a sort
head and is tihe cause of endless u:
necessary debate, not to mention ey
pense. Weln will we get free of sueh
* * *
Maybe the (isa rmament confer1enc
will last a year and then it will llav
been fouir years since the war' wa
practically closed. Four years c
struggle, three years of talk and tht
4world still in arm1s. Allies of thre
years ago still armed to the teeth an
still arim ing. Friday has been s(
apart as a (lay on which to conniew
orate the close of the war, but wit
all the clatter and clamor, the feveris
')reipa rations for more wars, one doo
not hardly feel that the issues of ti
war are settle(l. Our hope is in tHi
disarmament conference. lay it ac
complish more than it now promise,

The statement made by Sen. Dial t
City Council .Mlonday night that hi
company had already bought machit
cry for an emergency steam plant t
generate electricity in time of drougl:
is welcome news. The city has lon
stood in need of a more regular soirc
of electric current and the emergene
plant will, we hope, meet tle deicier
cy. The action of the Council i
granting a site for the plant at
nominal rental, will, we believe, tac
with the approval of the citizen:
Whether or not the present contrac
between the city and the power con
pany is favorable to the city, it is t
the city's iltcrest to be assured of
it is right i co-olJerat in; to at tai
