If the women haven't arrivc(l, they
ie'L ce rtainly on their way, speaking
in the language of the streets. A few
of them attended the club meetings,
a few'v the county conventions aid a
few will atte(i the state convention.
We have a feeling, however, that they
(lon't just like the thing and are only
doing their part to 1101d up their end
of the log. The real test of whether
or not the women want to vote or
bring- up men in the way they should
vote will come after the novelty wears
off. The immediate effects of women
voting has so far beenj wholesome, but
it will yet remain to be seen whether
the results will be wholly beneficial

and ianner severa (lays ago tol( ot
the conviction of two nien for crielty
to animals. The men ha(l been art
rested for severely teating a horse.
Crutelty to animals is a crime taken
too lightly inl most small towns and
some large towns. Very few things
are calculated to arouse the feelings
of sym pathetic peoide than mistreat
ment of dumb brutes, yet the objec
tion to the notoriety that wouild at
tach to interfereice in such cases and
natural a version to interference with
police ditties deters the average citi
zen from (loin-4g what In such cases his
heart p rom1tnrts him to do. We have
heard that local police have been
more or less active in the suppression
of this real vice, but we feel that the
assistaice and moral support of the
PIblic would be a great help to them.

it is true that a similar organization

much good, it is pos-isible that an eal
ler organization might tnot have been
as successful as this one pIrotilses to
be. Before tle adlvent of the boll
.weevil a succesful camlpaign to se
cure a profitable price for cotton
might have .been wrecked by the well
known tendency of cotton producers to
increase their output, but now that
production of cotton is very much
limited by the weevil it will hardly
'bq possible to grow a crop large
enough to rove a ,burden on the mar

t~hat the troubles of the farmer .in the

WO31EN AlE SENT b
TO STATE CONVENTION p
'ontlited from Page One.) 8
Mr. Jlackwell by commending Sen. t
Goodwin on his stand. - c
The Gray law enforcement resolu- t(
ton provoked considerable argument.
The resolution comtimtieided the Inem
bers of the lautrens delegation in the
last session of the legislature for in
troducing a bill doing aiway with fines
in case of conviction for violation of
the prohibition laws and recommend
ed that a similar bill 'be made a plank
in the state democratic platform with
an additional rovision that the pur
chser of whiskey be made equally
guilty With the seller In perpetrating
the ciime. F, P. .\eGowan pointed
out that this would make it more dif
fleuilt to enforce the law as the testi
mony of puichasers could not then be
secured. -lie moved to amend the mto
tion by striking out that clause. A
tnumber of deleigates advocated the
first part of Mr. Gray's motion, .but
disagreed with himl on the provision
as to making the purchaser a party
to the crime. A motion by Air. .J. W.
Kellett to table the whole resolution
was lost by a vote of 20 to 31;. The
convention reverting then to the
amendlment of dir. McGowan iassed
his a amendment by a large majority.
The original motion of Alr. Gray with
the amendIment of Air. 'McGowan, was
then passed without opposition.
The resolution of Mr. lMcCravy as
finally adcited was as follows:
"Whereas, the Mit. John .1. Alc
Swain. for the short time le has been
a member of Congress has faithfully
and ably represented the People in
their individual and sovereign ca
"Therefore, be it resolved by the
Laurens County Democratic Conven
tion that the Iion. John .1. lcSwain
be endorsed for re-election to Con- e
gress from the Fourth distiet." a
The resolution of .Judge Thompson V
was as follows: C
"Whereas, there is pending inl Con- a
gress a measure known as the Anti- I
Lynching Bill, which provides for giv- (
lig Federal Courts exclusive jiurisdic
lion in cases of lynching, or mob vio- t
lence, which, if passed would lie ai
further *erversioi of the rights of the I
States, and an encroachment upon lo- 1
cal self government, already far ad- I
"Therefore resolved, That while ut- S
terly opposed to lynch law, and mob I
rule, and favoring law and order,
and law enforcement at all times, we
heartily commend the united stand of
representatives of the South, together 1
with a lar'ge conservative element of t
the North, have assumed against this v
menace, a measure that while lnlet- i
ter disclosing no such purpose, and 1
posing as one for every part and par- v
cel of the country, would be essen- I
tially sectional in application. . L
"The effect of such a law in the I
great Southern section would be I
pernicious and far-reaching in its-mis- r
"It was conceived in the narrow r
ptartisan .pplitics, and yet lingering (
sectional hate, that has characterized I
the princioles of the Republican party
from its birtth.
"It is sectional because of peculiar
conditions atnd problems of more than
half a 'hutndted years standing in the
great Sottthern sectionis. With a vast
multitude, one-fourth of her poputla
tion, that up to a very recent period
had no access to the influences of
civilization, a class from wvhicht comes~

of that party in dealing with the vast

uthors .hbing of this city, viz., Mrs.
:mily Meng Jones, Mrs. Mary .Dunklin
Iray and 31iss 'W-il Lou Gray. As the

he preface, the book is intended pril
'arily as a text book in adult schools
nd for reading by those who have had
ut the merest rudiments of an educa
i. Publication in book form fol
wed a Wide demand for the same
tories previously published in bulle
in form and used extensively in this
Lnid several adjoining states.
The authors took 'advantage of the
'earning of the unlettored to read the

o perfect their reading.' 'Beginning
vith the story of Creation and contin
ing with familiar old and new testa
tent storier, the book is interspersed

Jandsonie plates in colors add to the
