It is a pleasutre to greet you ini the first
tnnual session of our association in the
new cctt.,.":. The century just closed
has been one of great results in all de
par tientsI of intdustry, of science, of art,
and of invention, ani in no lepartiet
of inventive geniis has there been greater
strides than in the developmient of the
:lt of pi inting. 0one of the niemubers of
our association have been able to witness
the oleater part of this evolution iron

ties of usefulness and for doing good far
greater than those which were presented
half a century ago, if we will but grasp
This development, while it holds great
opportuIities, also creates sharp comtpeti
tion and deunands close application anud
active industry to relain in the race.
Th'le newspaper workers oIf Somhi Caro
huia hlave kept patce with the march of'
prlogre'ss :iiul stanid the peels ci ally in
this counitry. Th'lere is no0 class of people
whol( do as Inuch to further the Iiaterial
devek>pluenit amid growth of their respec
tive coinunn it ies. There is nio class (of
mleni who do mlore for the moral up~liftinlg
of the people than the editors, T'hey are
conistaiit aiid regular in) all good works
and forciost ini every' llovemnent for tile
be2tternllettt of hlitilanlity. They ale patienit
andI lonlg-sufferinig and( unsel fish. They
lab)or for the good of the coniuunity
whether they receive aniy direct beiiefit
or nIot. It falct, unlike the prudeiit busi
neCss liuan, theiy (10 not stop to cons5iderl or
to inquiire if there is to be a dlOllar contI
inig back into their owni pockets. It is
too ofteni thte case that thle dlollar never
colies inito their pocket at all. Butt if the
object of life is service and( to (do good
regairdless of the ituoney there is in it to
thlemt tile)y are fulfilling the diviine pur'
pose in their lives.
If ant eniterprise is proposed for the
good1 of the communtliity thte average
country editor never stopls to consider
whether or not there is to be any direct
benefit to himt fromt it, but lie goes right
ahleadl andi spendls his enlergy and1( his
time to help it alonIg.
It is all right for the editor to be tun
selfish, and to spend imself iln doinIg
good. It is a great virtue to serve others
anId to work for the COmmlionl weal, espe
cially Inl this commilercial age wheni every
thing is niensured by the dollar, .tid a
linan's~ success ill life is counlted aind esti
imated bly thle numiuber of dollars lie is
-ablle to accumlalllite. It is possible, hIow
ever, that somie of uis place too little
value upon our labors and do not look
closely enloulgh after thte dollar anid place
too little value upjoni our space, which is
ini reality ouru merchandise anid our stock
111 trade. The fact is, I fear somletimles,
that somec of us permit ourselves to be
mnere door mats for the community and
the commtunity gets in the habit of sitm.
ply uising us without a proper recogniltioni
of the vajue we have b)eeni to the material
growth and developimentt of the coninu
nity and to the uplifting and betterment
of the people. The people for whom you
labor will not put a higher estimate upon
your labor than you place upont It yourself.
The public will appreciate your service
more If you let it be tunderstood that you
~, ~ feel and know yourself that it has value.
Then there Is the politliatan who, as a
rule, Is supremely selfish and has no0 use
,, for you except in so far as.he can use you
to advanice his own selfish ends. Let hinm
understand that you realize the power of
'51 , the'ipress to make and unmake men and
) will appreciate you the more,
'e thing I desire to Impress Is that in
pe apprecisited we: must pladea
utpoM our own workC
Another matter of sonme itmportance
and to which I have already referred is
that too ranaty editors do not realize the
value of th.ir space and their mainr pir
peo seents to be to fill space, I mean the
space in their newspaper., while rather
the (luestion should be what should they
The foreign advertiser knows this long
ing of the country editor to fill space and
he coics along with a proposition whiclh
requires no cotposition anl a stateinent

in to other way, and soo1 i coitract is

sioni, and in the best position of the paper
on local or editorial page, first advertise

to fill his entire paper with such contracts
he could iot itmake enough to pay for his
white paper and buy his wife a new
One of the oldest editors in this State,
and yet one of the youngest men, for he
is still a baclhelor, was so surprised a
short time ago at an olTer made him to
pay for an obituary notice of twenty
eight inches that lie did not know what
to charge, and actually wrote me to ask
what I thought would be proper for hint
to do. lie had pliblishedi hundreds of
in " _. of s
day and never before htad any friend or
relative of the departed thought of the
fact that it had cost hinl. mtotney to set
the type and buy the paper aml do the
printing. I was very iuch ill ltis condi
tion. I did tot know what to advise,
because I had never had such an expe
rience. We do not value our space. We
need somte cotcert of action in this mat
ter of advertising rates. It would be just
as easy to get i living price for otr space
as to sell it at starvatiotn rates as we are
loing tolay. It is our own fault that we
are not getting better prices. Patent
tmcdicities can not sell witlout being ad
vertised atl the nianufacturers know
this better than we do. These foreign
advertisers wotul(d py three times what
they atre paying today for advetisiig inl
the newspapers of this State hefore they
would stay out of thet, and we coild
get it just as easily as the price we ttow
get if we only woul. It is our fault. I
have called your attent:on to this taatter
several timies 1before, but it secis irpos
sible to get the ptbli-,bers to agree to get
together. This is a day of trusts and
combinatio ns and while we light the
trusts, atnl inl order to heIp us to do it we
should get together on this ttatter, and
at least demaid and secure living rates
for our merchandise and while we help
to enrich the foreign dealer get a little of
the pie oturselves.
I wotld like very much to see every
editor and publisher itn this State an ae

ing thte time you have honored me as
your President. I have endeavored to
awaken an interest among the editors in
the work of the Association and have

I believe it woul help the growth and
activity of the Association to keep a roll
of the membership and see to it that the
stmall annuital dues are paid. It is natural
thatt oneC feels ttore interest itt any otgttn

If lie does ntot paIy let his namtie he1

but hias accepted whatt was paid. T1his

Dillon, July 3.-The absorption of
the independent cotton oil mills in
South Carolina goes merrily on. About
two weeks ago the Virginia-Carolina
Chemical company of Charleston pur
chased the Atlantic Cotton Oil com
pany for $300,000. These mills are
located at Sumter, Camden, Iiennetts
ville, Gibson, N. C., and a refinery at
Charleston. Now the Dillon oil mill
has been absorbed by the same com
pany for $15,000. This is con parat ivoly
a new mill of 45 tons capacity. Nego
tiations are today pending for the pur=
chase of th At arion oil mill by the same
corporation, and the ultimate absorp
tion, as this mill, like many others, it
Is stated, lost money last season owing
to the high price of seed compared with
the low price of oil and tmeal.
It is not, yet known what has been
done with the Plorenco mill, but it has
been reported that this same corpora
tion has secured an option on it. In Dar
lingtonotho Virginia-Carolina Chemical
company practically owns one of the
two mills located there, and the owners
of the other mill, up to a short time
ago, declared their unalterable inten
tion not to sell out to the trust, but will
work on as an independent company.
Thus all the mills with this single ex
ception, In the rich cotton belt of east
ern South Carolina have passed into
the hands of the Charleston fertilizer
trust. Whether the absorption of mills
in other parts of the State is in pro
gress is not yet known, but it is ru
mored that such a movement is on foot.
There are 62 cotton oil mills in the
The recent formation of that $12,000,
000 corporation in the east for the pur
chase and control of some of our south

South Carolina. The Southern Cotton
Oil company with its eighty large mills
was sold to the Virginia-Carolina Chem
ical company on the 1st instant for
$2,000,000, and the transfer has been
formally made in New York. Mr. C.
F'itzSimons, the president of the Colunm
bia mill, has been retained by the new
company and has entered upon his now
Those in a position to talk do not
hesitate to say that from a business
standpoint the purchase of these oil
mills will greatly benefit the Virginia
Carolina Chemical company, who prac
tically control the fertilizer business of
the Sm-te, Cotton seed meal contains
about 0 per cent. of ammonia, which is
the most costly Ingredient in the make
of commercial fertilizers. Not owning
any mills they have heretofore been
compelled to use fish-scrap or blood to
supp)ly ammonia, which ingredIents are
costly and uncertain in their analysis.
Apart from being a source of ammonia
cotton seedl is an excellent "filler" in
the manufacture of these goods. Its
use Is nothing new and thousands of
tons have been annually absorbed In
tis way. It Is stated on good author
ity thlat the Atlantic Cotton Oil comn
pany had on foot a welidevised plan to
purchase or comnbine into a trust sever
al of the oil mnills In thlis State, and had
gone to work systematically securing
options to many of them. The Virginia
Car-olina Chemical com pany, hearing of
tils ImmedIately entered into negotia

did so at a price exceeding their capital

The woe k on the distillery which the
iRichland )istilling company is building
about one-half imile below Granby on
the Congarec is being rapidly pushed,
and Contractor Fred Sitendorf is mak
ing every effort to have the work con
pleted by Saptember 1, the dato called
for by tho contract.
The capacity of the new plant will
be 000 bushels per day, larger than any
other distillery in North or South Caro

the two or three largest distiller1as in
When completo there will be six
buildings: The government bond ware
house, 40 x 100 feet, with storage room
for 8,000 barrels; the main building,
four stories high, 50 x 60 feet; the for
mnenting building; the dry house; boiler
room, and the barrel house.
The process to be employed in the
plant calls for the most improved ma
chinery, none of which has arrived yet.
The first six carloads are looked for
The plant when finished is expected
to cost $85,000 and it is thought the
business done will amount to $600,000
In addition to the employes of the
Richland company, of which Mr. N. M.
Black is president, the government will
have three storekeepers and a guager
to look after Uncle Sam's portion of the
'!corn juice." They will, of course,
have entire charge of the government
warehouso. This building is most tho
roughly constructed. Over the heavy
two-inch flooring has been placed a
second flooring to insure firm foothold
for the 8,000 barrels which this build
ing will contain.
This building is nearly finished, and
two others, the main and fermentation
building are well under way.
The process to be used in this dis
tillery is known as "the improved Ken
tucky process," and the whiskey thus
made is guaranteed to be entirely free
from all chemicals.
This process is an extremely interest

understood when stripped of its techni
To begin at the beginning, the corn
is conveyed from the cars to the corn
bins by means of elevators. Thence it
is again carried by elevators to another
receptaclo and cleaned. The corn is
then taken to the crushing box and
from there to the meal bin. The meal
bin is under government control and
record is kept of every bushel of meal
in order to compare it later with the
amount of whiskey produced.
Still cooking is the next thing. And
just here is where the old met hods are
improved on. In the new process the
meal, instead of being cooked in a ket
tle exposed to the air, is cooked in a
closed vessel. This is done to aid the
setting free of the starch from the corn.
After being heated to 148 degrees for a
p)eriod of three hours evaporation is al

The malt is then added. As Is
known, malt is barley artificially ger'mi
