?anse ami getting ilieni out to tho
polls next TiieHduy week?
So far UH wo know very little lia:
boen ?lone .uo for to*.a rosso Uic enc
inten of liquor ?its to the importance of
lim referendum on September 14th. A
Columbia minister came to Anderson
a few days ago and delivered three
nddresscH one in tho country and the
others ut mill churches- on the sub
ject of prohibition, and it 1B our in
formation that that IH all that h IH
been done of a tangible nature in An
derson county in furtherance of the
cause with the exception of an address
ut one of the local .Methodist churches
nex eral weeks ego. And that Isn't
much, to Hay the least. We under
stand also arrangement* have been
made for having two speakers ad
dress the public at Pendleton and An
derson between now and tho day of
the election. These speakers, wo are
told, are not natives of 'his state. In
fact, have been brought from distant
states for tho purpose of telling the
volers of Anderson county how they
should east their ballots in thc liquor
Well enough, so far as it goes. We
have no objection to "imported" talent
fo bo^p us carry thc fight for prohibi
tion, but why not supplement in with
porno "local" talent? We believe the
voters of Anderson county ns a whole
had rather have tho advice of their
own leaders and thinkers on this vital
subject. Not that they aro Inclined
to distrust our friends who arc being
brought hero to give them advice, but
when a fellow gets into trouble and
wants another fellow's advice as to
what to do, ho doesn't go to a strang
er, but seeks out some old friend,
truo. trusted and tried. It's pretty
much tho same way iu this matter of
tho liquor referendum. The voters of
the communty nro hoing advised both
ways about tho matter. The "Local
Option Leaguo" (whatever that is) an
octopus with plenty of monov to
spend, is buying up newspaper ri.- ice
by the page' and- advertising to tho
world the "folly," no, the tragedy,
that may bo expected in voling for
prohibition. Verily, tho water ls mud
died. And the voters generally want
somebody, or ought to havo somebody
who nows the "Inside" of it, to tell
them about these things. Friends of
prohibition hsd best go niter those
big pago-advs in the newspapers and
pull the mask off-befpre illa too lato.
Hut bock to our original thought of
what 1B being done in Anderson coun
ty, of a tangible nature, to further
tho cause of prohibition at the polls
next Tuesday week. Is snybody go
ing about tho country urging the vot
ers to turn out to the polls? Is any
body urging the voters to prepare for
the election, and telling them what ls
necessary for them to do in order to
be q unlined? Is snybody making ar
rangements for transporting voters
from their places of business to the
polls and back, as they do when a
gubernatorial election Is on? If there
is, we are^frsnk to confess wo havo
been unable to locato them. We .hope
the friends of prohibition do not look
?i. thc matter SB one for the public,
for "what ls everybody's business is
Nobody's business." frach and every
Vriond of prohibition should consider
himself thc only friend tho cause has
in his community, and that the whole
burden of carrying the election In
favor of prohibition ls on his should
ers. And ho should show his inter
est by doing something of a tangible
Within tho past few days we havo
Inqulrod of several ot Anderson's
excellent citizens-men who aro ene
mies of liquor^-lf they wero going to
turn out and vote next Tuesday. And
several of them have Informed us that
"they hadn't thought about it." That's
it If the cause of prohibition falls
In South Carolina next Tuosdsy week
lt will bo becausev of th > Inscthrlly
of its friends ra*her than because of
the activity of those opp<*ed to it.
Citizens, the "wets" err. at work. It
may not be noticeable right hers in
Anderson, where sentiment is over
whelmingly tor prohibition, but they
aro working. In ,other parts ot the
state, sud particularly the lower coun
ties, where the legal sale of liquor ls
au Institution, and where sentiment
Isn't so overwhelmingly against them.
The friends of prohibition had bet
ter bestir themselves. '
The Ka?s?r isn't the onV ruler who
IR "surrounded by a ?world'' of orie
nten." There's Carranza. And what
ever their defects, they certainly have
the courage of their convictions.
In an able report submitted to lils
government by Herr von Waetzoldt,
German trude repr?sentatives in this
country, und recently published by the
Now Vork World, occurs this inter
esting passage:
. "As under America's peculiar in
st initions there is no restraint upon
tlte press, one learns in this way many
tilings which In other countries are
fearfully withheld from publication."
To an America, nothing seems more
"peculiar" than that anybody should
call our freedom of the press pecuiiur.
We ure so accustomed to the printing
without direction or hindrance from
any source, of everything thought to
be of public interest, that wc forget
that un institution so completely free
is absolutely unique. We have no
government, state or municipal cen
sorship. The only restraints placed
on our press are those of the editors'
porsonui sense of proprl"ty or their
fear of private libel suits.
Willie tin; European war ls in prog
ress tile enviable position of our
newspapers is more conspicuous than
usual. Even the English papers, or
dinarily nearly as free us ours, are
under tho censor's thumb. Though
apparently not forced to pervert uews
or ifrint falsehoods, the matter they
may print is severely limited. In the
continental countries newspaper con
trol by the government appears al
most absolute, particularly In Ger
many. After the sinking of thc Arabic,
for instance, no German paper car
ried a word about that cvevt for three
days. As a rule the editorial com
ment of German papera moves with
tho harmony und precision of march
ing soldiers, suggesting that it is
directed by thc same master minds
that direct her armies.
Here a free press is thc voice of a
free people. Even Its quarrels and
disagreements and wasting of energy
in mutual recrimination are evidences
of freedom. And we are not likely to
sacrifico that liberty of thc printed
word and more than liberty of speech,
either In peaco or In war. It docs not
even annoy us when Herr Waetzoldt
reports to the German chancellor
that ho lins obtained from our press
much information which "la, from a
military standpoint, valuable to Ger
many." American newspapers are
disposed to treat even "military se
crets" with honest contempt.
. Thero are mighty few secrets In
American politics or diplomacy o~
business or any other phase of Amer
ican life. This nation lives in the
open, and thc record of its life and
work, its virtues and sins, ls spread
oi? i printed pago for all to read-even
for Its enemies, if lt has any. And
this "pccularity" of our press ls one
of the chief glories of America.
If you were to read the headlines
over somo articles, and read no moro
than that, you would see some ludi
crous stuff. For instance, here's a
heading over an article that tells
about a murder: "Kershaw County
Tragedy. Rain Prevents Dogs from
Taking Trail." Sounds like a bunch
of 'possum hunters had been disap
pointed In not being able Xo have a
night's fun.
And so Germany! after all, wants to
be our friend! The manifestations of
friendliness, or at least of a return
to reason and courtesy, on the part
of tho Berlin government, have
brought a thrill, of pleasure to every
genuine American. Germany has done
bitter things hhd said bitter things;
but there ls moro Joy over one sinner
that repent otb than over the nlnety
and-nlne that went not astray.
Wo do not want war with Germany.
We do not want to 'stop speaking- to
Germany." We do not want any mis- j
understanding with Germany. Even
tho great number' of Americans who
would prefer to see Germany defeated
in this war are Inspired by no Vin
dictiveness. At the height of ?ll feel
ing they have regarded the German
nation more In sorrow than In anger.
There has been anger felt against
the German leaders respon?tbe for
perverting German Ideals and poli
cies and perpetrating military and
political crimes; but there has.been
only 'sorrow for the German people
whom we Judge to have been misled,
and who we know are expiating and
w?ll continuo to expiate for years to
come Ute sins of their government.
Even to that government, however,
. American & are ready to extend a
friendly hand, If lt mends tts way.
Without sacrificing any principles
that are essential to humanity , and
-civilisation, we are ready to meet Ger
many half way In making legitimate
concessions and establishing a work
able arrangement to avoid further
friction while the war laste If Grr
ruany behaves generously, as ahe
shows signs ot doing, she will f.nd
American no less generous.

Editor Intelligencer.
Slr: If you want to know If our]
town has any (scandalmongers, just
step In Homo of the drug stores and it I
won't be very long before your blood
will go to your head. You will hear)
prosperous-looking men, dressed in
dollies bought on the Installment
plan, slander thc characters of pure
innocent girls-girls who would feel
ashamed to call such men brothers.
You wonder In your editorial In to
day's Intelligencer If we have men in
thiB town who talk about and try to
ruin the reputations of clean, honest
men-men who wouldn't have these
long-tongued individuals to black their
shoes. I wonder If those men have
sisters? If they have, how would
they like for other men to talk about
the ones they believe spotless?
Tile scandalmonger ls a pest to any
country. Hut we can't help lt, we
can't expect anything better. They
are too narrow. It is left for you, -Mr.
Editor, to tell them through your val
uable paper that a new-born poodle
dog has more sense in its tail than
most of these men have in their heads.

Mr. J. R. Vandiver, president oi the
Anderson Phosphate and Oil company
has received a letter from the labra
torios of Thomas A. Edison asking for
prices on Chamber acid. This acid is
mado by the local company in the
manufacture of fer tili; r but hereto
fore they have not had an opportunity
to place it on the market.
The letter received here was from
W. W. Medowcroft, written for Mr.
Edison. It says in part:
"Mr. Edison wishes me to inquire
from you whether you would be able
to supply us with several tank cars
of Chamber acid during the remain
der of the year, delivered In tank
bars at Silver I>akc. N. J. If so,
will you quote prices thereon.
W. W. Medowcroft,
For Thomas A. Edison.
Mr. Vandiver replied to this let
ter as follows:
"Referrinr; to yours of the 19th.
will ask how many cars you would
want of acid, and what shipping
you would require, and what degreo
of baume will you want. We as
sumo that you will furnish cars and
would like to kuow what you would
pay us F. O. B. here in buyer's cars.
We navo never Hold any^ acid and
don't know whether it will pay us
to sell or not until wc lind what we
can get for If."
It seems that while the acid is
mado hero in the man; facturo of
fertilizer, that the company has not
sold any. This may be a by-pro
duct of tho company which will prove
Itself to bc valuable to them.

Berlin, Aug. 31.-(Associated
Press Correspondence. )-A woman
Socialist discusses in tire, Vorwaerta
the view held by many of her BOX in
Uormany that tho war will bring wo
men rcearer the goal of political
equality. She says:
"We warn the people of our party
not to cherish too many hopas, and to
remember that every privilege which
lias any value and brings us forward.
must be won'. The war has perhaps
brought us nearer to enfranchisement
in that the opponents of female suf
frage tliave been deprived of many of
their mort serviceable arguments, and
above all, because the least Interest
ed woman must clearly see how ur
gently women citizens need political
influence, which they can ex^rclso
only through the voto. Tho bare fact
that a ware of such tremendous ef
fect, such widespread dimensions, and
such painful losses in every belliger
ent country could have come to pass,
must create in women-who are most
deeply affected-a resolve to cooper
ate in tibs prevention of future wars.
"After the war a struggle to bring
about a readjustment ot political pow
er will recommence. Women will
lake part in lt more than hitherto,
because the war baa taughti them
how much the state stands in need of
their responsible cooperation.
"Above all things we must now fol
low and study attentively political
events and economic and social meas
ures, for this' knowledge of what is
occurring in public lifo gives us the
rlgiht and tho power to express our
views and represent our demands.
Many of or party comrades have been
killed, and our Tanks thinned. We
women must therefore see to it that
new partisans, sincere and unbending
advocates of democracy and social
ism, come to us. It must be bur'task
to strengthen and consolidate the .'tar
ty, for nothing but the strengthening
of democracy in Germany and t> o
permeation of our Whole political life
with democratic ideas will bring us a
lasting peace and female suffrage."
