South Carolina needs a compulsory
education law, and for many good and
sufficient reasons it should come just as
soon as possible.
No one who loves his State, and has
her welfare at heart, will dispute the
fact that every white child within the
bounds of the State should receive a
common school education. It was with
this end in view that our free common
school system was established. No one
can dispute the fact that there are
white children growing up in all parts
of the State who can neither read nor
write, who have never attended school
for a single day. Only the other day
a case was brought to light in one of
our upper counties. In a preliminary
trial a white girl nine years of age was
put upon the witness stand. Upon ex
amination she made the statement that
she could neither read nor write, nor
had she ever heard of the existence of
a God. Three school houses and anum
ber of churches were within easy walk
ing distance from her home.
The greatest objection that has
hitherto been urged against the passage
of a compulsory education law in this
State is that the negroes will be forced
to school, and from school they will gc
to the ballot box, and when they go t<
the ballot box negro supremacy will bE
the inevitable result. The fallacy o:
this argument is patent to every
thoughtful man who is in touch witl
the true conditions. It is a fact tha
can be proved by statistics that the ne
groes are at present being educate<
faster than the whites, that during the
decade from 1890 to 1900 the decreas
in the percentage of their illiteracy iu
this State was nearly three times a
great as the decrease in the illiterac;
of the whites. The negroes are takin
advantage of every opportunity to ge
an education. They prefer it to foo
and raiment, and they are making re
If these facts are true, and they ar
true, what would be the result of com
pulsory education? The negroes a
present are taking all the educatioi
they can get. They would receive n
more. The white people who see th
incalculably great advantages of al
education, and who are already sendini
their children to school would not b
affected in the least. Only, those per
sans would be reached, who by depriv
ing their children of an education, ar
daily committing a crime against thei
State and against society.
Let it be supposed, hQwever, that th
negroes would receive additional ad
vantages. Shall we let the white chil
dren reain in -ignorance for fear th
negroes will receive an education? Th
fact can not be too strongly impresse
upon our people that it were better tha
a thousand negroes should be educated
with negro supremacy staring us in th
face, than that one white child shoul<
iemaim in ignorance.
We plead for the education of th
masses, let the consequences be wha
Uey may. No one doubts that it i
right. From the white man's stand
point, we believe that it is expedient.
In connection with the question o
compulsory education comes that o
child labor. There is little doubt ther
ls going to bechild labor legislation i
this State, and that it is coming at th
next session of the legislature. Th
children will be kept out of the mills
When this is done, they must be re
quired to attend school. Compulsor
education will result.
The best solution of the whole matte
is a wise and just compulsory educatio:
law. Give us this, and we will need n
child labor legislation. The children o
the ams and all the children of th
State between certain ages, will be re
quired to attend school. Then, an<
then only, will South Carolina hay
taken the position she should occup;
among the galaxy of States.
The Richmond Dispatch says:
"A Richmond man who has beei
striving for two months to overcomi
his own faults reports that his occupa
tion keeps him too busy to be lookmnj
after those of his neighbor."
It is agood rule. If we would bool
more carefully after our own faults an<
not be so concerned about our neighbors
we would find our time more profitab2
employed. It might be a good rule il
business as well. There are some, peo
pie who seem more concerned abou'
other people's business than they
are about their own. But there is
something human in the ability to set
the mote in our brother's eye when w<
cannot see the beam in our own.
Eight cents for cotton and a goot
corn crop with plenty of peas and haa
should make this county in good condi
tion financially. The farmer should sel
cotton as fast as he can gin it, especial
ly so long as he can get 8 cents anc
over for it. The price will in all proba
bility come below that figure, and if il
goes up again, as it most likely will, i1
will be too late to benefit the producer,

The Democratic State convention of
New York had rather a stormy time on
Wednesday, but Hill still rules. Bird
S. Coler, of Brooklyn was nominated
for governor and Chas. N. Bulger, of
The following appeared in the edito
rial columns in a recent issue of the
Detroit Free Press:
"To be sure, the lot of the Rouma
nian Jew is not a happy one, yet they
do not burn him at the stake if he is
remotely suspected of having commit
ted a crime against society. He has
few political privileges, but they do not
assassinate him when he undertakes to
exercise those few. He has a melan
choly social standing, but they do not
compel him to ride in Jim Crow cars;
they do not refuse to serve him in hotels
and restaurants, and they do not lynch
him if he grows insistent and under
takes to assert his lawful privileges."
With such articles as this daily mak
ing their appearance in the Northern
press, is it any wonder that, though
thirty-seven years have passed since
the stars and bars were furled at Appo
mattox, the wounds caused by the civil
war have not yet wholly healed? Ne
groes are sometimes lynched in the
South. This the Southern people will
not attempt to deny, and they hold that
there are times when such action is
justifiable in the sight of God and man.
But whence comes the right of the
Northern people to call them to actount,
when statistics will show that in pro
portion to negro population in each sec
tion, the North in recent years leads in
As to Jim Crow car laws and the re
fusal of our people to admit negroes
into Southern hotels. Let the North
ern people dine negroes if they so de
sire. Let them permit negroes to ride
beside their wives and daughters in rail
road cars, if they wish. Let them put
negroes on a social equality with them
selves, if they believe that it is just
and proper. The South will raise no
kick. But the broad and yawning
chasm of an undying belief in the God
given superiority of the Anglo-Saxon
race, a superiority to be upheld by the
shot-gun if necessary, shall continue
forever to stand between such things
and the Southern people.
