Wishes to Bettor Acquaint "Cousin
legislature" with Oconoo's Men.
Westminster, April 9.-My Dear
Cousin Legislature: It is a pleasure
to me to re?oive the good letters you
write me, and the advice you give
me is so good, and it is so thought
ful of you. and I know by the way
you write mo that you must like me
moro and more. How I do appreci
ate your love for me, and you may
rest assured that your affection for
mo will ever be remembered by me.
Tho reason I have not answered your
letter before this ls because I knew
that you must be worried and work
ed almost to death cleaning up your
house and arranging your furniture
after entertaining so many guests
that attended your house party this
past winter. Why don't yon stop giv
ing these annual house parties? You
must certainly begin to realize that
there is no good ever comes from the
practice. Besides, even if I had no
other reason for wanting you to stop
the practice, you know as well ns 1
that you tire not tis young as you
used to bo. as well as myself, lt is
hard on you and how very, very
expensive it is! So won't you prom
ise mc that you will stop it? ; love
you too much to see you gi\" your
Hmo and strength for so unprofita
ble a froiic as it always turns ,;'.?t to
be; ami besides ali tho other 'lings
I and expenses, your health mt be
considered. You know 1 was .Ik
ing just the other day with our doc
tor, and he lolls mo thal your houri
is in a dangerous condition, ami hat
any very sudden excitement might
cause you to have heart failure. I'm
liol lolling you this to scare you into
stopping these frolics, bul 1 am '. li
ing you for your good, as you know
wc always tell each other whatever
we think might help tte along in any
You asked me in your last letter
about the three guests that attended
your party from this county ( Oco
nee t. They are till right men in their
way. but
Oh. yon said. I remember, that you
didn't meet or see much of them.
One of them was named W. Preston
Mason, one was named E. Preston
I Bruce, and the other was named W.
Longfellow Dalton. (1 think Long
fellow is what the "L" stands for in
Mr. Dalton's name, but don't know
for certain.
Mr Mason watt called, white down
there, The Senator from Om nee,"
'and Messrs, Dalton und Bruce wer?
j culled "llepresentatlvea from Ucu
j nee. The above nantes, or rank, as
I you may choose to call it. is what
i society in Oconee would have us call
them, and it is all right, as it en
? ables one lo distinguish one from
i the other. Sorry you didn't gel to
. ?neel and talk with them. Mr. Dal
ton lives at Seneca, and ho got lip
and .-poke out in the meeting and
asked all the other guests at your
j party to help him make the Southern
Railway Company build an under?
pass under the railro.nl in the town
of Seneca, and to my personal knowl
edge the railroad has been built and
trains ita ve been passing through
the town of Seneca for a period of at
least two years. I know whereof 1
speak, for 1 have ridden through
Seneca Oll thc trains, and to taste a
pudding is the proof of it. Mr. Dal
ton stood up for his town. Hurrah
for Dalton! His address will be Hon.
W. L. Dalton. Seneca, S. C.. City
F.. Preston Bruce was also chosen
i to be one of your guests from this
i county, but if he ever got there I
^ have never seen any account of it
. His address is (I think) Hon. IO. P
j Bruce. Westminster. S. C.. H. I\ I)
} If Mr. Bruce got there he evidently
- did not think that his town needed
anything, so he just remained silent
And so no harm did he do. Httrrali
for Mr. Bruce!
I Mr. Mason ranks higher in society
, in Oconee than tho other two gentle
men mentioned above, hence tin
name Senator Mason, of Oconee. Mr.
I Mason lives at a place, known by
the small remnant ol' the world left,
us Tokoena, S. C. His address ls,
however, Hon. \V. P. Mason. Seneca.

The record shows, my cousin, that
% Mr. Mason was doing no serious
harm either, moro than keeping tho
t people back home posted as to thc
good health of the trio.
The time for your party to adjourn
was drawing too near for the gen
, eral comfort of the ring, so those
composing the ring began to sniff thc
. wind and consulted Hie sympa th iz
3 ers of tho ring, and all decided to
- hold a stockholders' and director5.-'
r meeting of tho ring and try to fall
- upon some plan to get Mr. Mason to
r take nott? as to bow short a time lie
; had left to do anything for tho ling
j stors. A big mooting was pulled off
fit the Court House for the purpose
of fulling on some plan to reduce the
taxes, and going on record us lavoi
ing great economy. There wa? a
good attendance of the citizens from
over the county. Mr. Mason was atk
ed to be present, and he was. lie
was the orator of the day, so I an;
told. And, cousin, when Mi. Mason
returned to your party and you all
called on him for un after-dinner
speech, as is usually the case under
tho rules of society, I Just fool Uko
1 can hear him when he said: '.Mr.
Master of Ceremonies, before j pro
ceed to talk 1 wii! ask you to have
. my friends, Mr. Cruce and Mr. Dal

to say. Thanks! Hav? seats, gentle

"We are not materially affected by
the present unemployment," Michael

per cent of our members aro work
ing at the old scale. Of the total
membership of tho building trades

aro out of work. It does them no
good to ask $1.25 an hour; there
are no jobs for them. At a reduced

making a good living.
"If we agree, all of us, to accept
a reduction, T know of $150,000.000
