Entered April 28, 1903 at Pickens, a. 0., as seoond class matter, under aot of Cougress of btarob 8, 1879.
lion. Geo. S. Legaro called a
mass meeting of the people of
the town of Pickens on last
Thursday night, the object of
which was to look to the success
fil pulling off of a county fair
in Pickens next September. The
meeting was much better at
tended than was the Poultry and
Fair Association when it was
organized, that show teaching
the people that things could be
done if there was a will.
The town was pretty well rep
resented by the male portion of
its citizenship, and after a brief
talk outlining what he wanted
to do, Mr. Legare suggested the
various committees and who
should serve on them.
The association is top-heavy
with committees and they will
be in each other's way. Mr.
Legare wont more then geot them
straightened out and the work
ers picked out before the time
for holding the fair is upon them
-the interim is too short in
which to carry out the ideas
fully, as advanced at the niet
Ing, and the agricultiral part of
it will come up lacking. Mr.
Legare had better decide to make
this thirty or forty days later
and everybody go to work to
make it a success in every way.
This paper will kp in as
close touch as it can with the
committees, and the progro'ss of
the fair will be noted as it be
comes necessary to do so, and
the dates, when agreed upon,
will be given. If it is for the
gool, benefit and encourago
ment of the entire county, then
it behooves every citizen to work
for its success.
Congressman Aiken Has Made Good.
Some weeks ago a gentleinan
from Newberry was in Wash
ington, at the time the house
committee on public buildings
was holding public hearings, and
he complained mightily because
Congressman Aiken did not
make an engagement for him
to go before the committee and
make a speech urging an ap
propriation for a court house for
Mr. Aiken said he had no ob
. jectionito the gentleman making
the speech, but that it could do
no possible good, and would be
unnecessary waste of the com
mittee's time. Mr. Aiken as
sured the gentleman that every
thing that could be done to secure
the appropriation was being
Mr. Aiken's judgement has
beenf vindicated. The public
buildings bill has just passed the
house, and it contains an item
for $50,000 for a post office build
ing for Newberry. And it seems
to us that this Is mighty liberal,
for Newberry Is not near as big
a town nor as important as An
derson was when she got her
first appropriation of $50,000 for
a post office building.
Mr. Aiken was right in the
course he pursued. Public com
mittee hiearings seldom (10 any
good and often they do harm.
Certainly they can do no good in
the matter of an appropriation
*for a postoffice building. The
conmmittee has on file all the
figures showinug IthQ amount of
business done at each naamIien
in the United States, and noth
ing that any body could say
would be more convincing than
these figures. A long winded
speech from a dull speaker might
defeat an appropriation in a
doubtful case. We have an
idea that the Newberry appro
priation was secured in this man
ner more than any other.
Mr. Aiken has made good in
this matter, and he is to be con
. And when you come to think
about it he has made a mighty
good congressman. He is now
serving his third term, and dur
ing that time he has securd ap
propriations for four bublic
buildings in his district-for An
derson,Greenwood, Abbeville and
Newberry, and has just secured
an increase for Anderson. What
better Vecord could he have
nade? Can any other southern
congressman show such a rec
ord? -Anderson Daily Mail.
Will Meet in Columbia.
Much interest is being cen
tered on the meeting of the
Cotton Seed Crushers' Associa
tion of South Carolina, which
will convene in Columbia on
June 23 and 24.
For several years the public
has noticed with ever-increasing
interest the progress made by
the cotton seed oil men. For
years and years, up to about 25
1 years ago, the seed from the
cotton was considered so much
ruibbish, except t ie little that
was used as seed for planting
cotton and fertilizing. Lately
the business of the cotton seed
crushers has progressed to such
an extent that the government
experts are experimenting with
a view of developing a cotton
that ias less lint and more seed.
At the meeting to b3 held in
Columbia this month, roie of
the most important questions of
the day will be discussed by men
who know the subject. The
matter of feeding stock, milch
cows and cattle on cotton seed
meal and hulls has attracted
much attention in the last few
years, and Judge Henry C.
Hammond of Augusta, who-has
probably had more experience
in this line than any other man
in the country, will deliver an
address at this meeting about
some of his fine results. Others1
who will tell some facts about
the qualities of cotton seed
products are Mr. E. B. Boykin,
of the Bureau of Plant Industry,
and Prof. J. N. Harper of Clem
son College.
Mr. C. Fitzsimmons of Colum
bia, Is president of the South
Carolina association, and Mr. B.
F. Taylor is Secretary. A very
'pleasant program has been ar
ranged, interspersing the busi
ness meetings with plenty of
entertainment. A big barbecue.
will be served at noon, June 24.
The prospects are that there will
be a very large attendance at
the meeting.
