There is criticism of Presider. t ^larding:
for taking1 both sides in liii: strike
situation address. Well there are two
sides to the question and 110 fair minded
man could commit himself unreservedly
to either side.
That is an interesting story that is
being printed today to the effect that
the Brownings of Greensboro, N. C.,
ni??d Greenville have just inherited fif
teen million dollars from the estate of
a rich uncle in Texas; but the story
has not been confirmed. There are people
who like to put out such stories,
and very often they get into print; but
they are not always true.
At Anderson Saturday Mr. Laney
called Mr. Duncan a liar. Mr. Duncan
has been asking; Blease, McLeod and
l^iney to deny that they are under obi
ligation, 31' elected, to turn the Columbia
canal property over to K. \\*. Robinson.
Heretofore all the candidates
have been ignoring the challenge,
along with everything else emanating
' from Duncan. Unabls to stand it
11 any longer, Mr. Lnney called Mr. Dun
can a liar, after which he made proper
' apology to the chairman of the ineeti
ing. But Mr. Lancy ought not to have
. talked that way. What lie said was
. true no doubt; but then what was the
use of saying it?

(Jovernnr Harvey as saying that
former Coventor ltloa.se had granted
lO.Ortd (ton thousand) full pardons.
There i.s no doubt of the fact that
ltlea.se was somewhat of a pardoner;
" but that those figures exaggerate the
record somewhat is quite evident. According
to the correspondent, however,
the governor was led to this remarkable
discovery through an alleged re.

of two men that (Joversnr 1 .lease
had paroled. Search revealed the fact
that following their . parolcment the
governor had given them a full pardon
along with the ton thousand others.

Dangerous Proposition.
There is pending in congress for
submission to the states, a proposed
amendment to tiie constitution that
will prove of far-reaching importance
if it should ever he adopted.
The proposition comes from Mr.
Green of Iowa, and reads as follows:
That from and after the adoption of
this amend men t as a part of the constituti.cn
the provisions of the sixteenth
nniemllllellt to t he eotwt H ot Ion
shall apply to and include income* derived
from securities thereof tor issued
or created hyan.v state or political subdivision
thereof or any dependency of
lite United States; hut taxes on incomes
derived from sneh sororities
must l?e laid without discrimination in
favor of Income derived from other securities
of the same term and general
elass issued or oroatod after the adoption
of'this amendment as a part of
the constitution.
The clear purpose of this is to fix It
so that the United Slates ran tax state
securities, while the states are not allowed
to tax United States securities.
The last clause of the proposed
amendment guarantees that all securities
must be taxed alike; hut the
principle is vicious.
The original decision of the supreme
emmt that a state could not tax a security
of the United States an I vice
versa, was on the grout*d t^iat the
"right to tax involved the right to destroy."
Th.it was laushed at as vi-l.mnry:
hilt hiToro hmg there eame a time
when the laugh was changed to a grin.
l"p until well into the Civil war all
the paper money of the country was
issued by state hanks, and such a
thing as interference with that riirlit
was little drcanud of anywhere until
the establishment of the national
With the establishment of national
hanks of issue, however, it was soon
found that they could never he rtade
to pro so Ions as stale hanks continued
in Hie enjoyment of the power tl.ey
had been enjoying all along.
To get rid of the slate hank issues,
congress in tlie exercise of its constitutional
power of regulating the enr|
roncy, imposed a tax of ten per cent
i per annum, and that gave the national
I banks the comiilcte mnnnnnlv

The Peoples National Bank of Rock
Hill has completed the compilation of
an estimate of the cotton crop of South
Carolina for this year as compared
with last year. The total of last year's
erop was 770,661 bales and according
to the bank's estimate, made up principally
from reports of banks throughout
the state, this year's crop looks like
583,264 bales. York county made 41,092
bales last year and the bank puts this
year's crop at 25,000 bales, or 61 per
cent, of last year's crop.
The peach tree experiment of McsI
?! ? si**in csi'i iunn !iml Johnson Came
ion, on the Chester road, is one of
great significance to this whole section.
Whether or not this experiment will
prove a success remains to ho seen;
but the possibilities arc in its favor.
Anyhow the matter is up to the country
generally. Shall others "chime in
now, or wait until they see how Cameron
and Garrison come /out? The
waiting policy seems to be the natural
one; but is it the sensible policy?
If Garrison *nd Cameron succeed they
will succeed big, and the more cooperation
they have in their experiment the
greater will be their success. A few
hundred cars of peaches can be handled
to better advantage than a few do.Ten I
cars. If the peaches have to be taken
care of locally, they can be taken rare j
of better on a large scale than on a
small scale.- We ore inclined to think
that the best thing for the neighbors
to do is to commence planting trees I
right now rather than wait to sec how
these enterprising pioneers come out.

Talking to .Mr. .J. F. Ashe of .MeCon- j
11. Usvillu llit? othff day about bur do- !
vit. According 10 the best information ^
of Tin- Yorkville Knquirer, .Mr. A,she
was tin* firs. York county farmer to
rocogni/.o tin value of bur clover as a
soil builder, lie has been familiar W illi
tli-. legume for Ihirty years, and had it j
growing an his farms for a hour time j
before lie began to appreciate that it
had any value at all.
"See that piece of corn over there?" j'
said .Mr. Ashe, pointing to a Held of
line corn in the roasting-enr stage just
across the Yoikville-Chester road from
iiis house. "You remember that field (
when it was very poor, don't you'.';1
Well that land has been brought to j
what it is now principally by bur clo- j :
v?r. and it was bur clover that made :
that corn. I'
"For various reasons I was unable to 1
got that field broken up until late in i ?
the season, and shortly after the corn j
was put in, it turned off d>y. The corn I
did not do .so well f'?r lack of moisture;
but it kept growing and began to show
U|) ;i low small ears. At times I felt '
teat it would l>e no good. Hut look at
it now since the rain. It is going to
make good corn, and I'm giving all the
credit to bur clover. Except for the
clover, it would have made nothing
with the kind of seasons it has been
"1 saw an article in The Yorkville
Enquirer not long ago," continued Mr.
Ashe, "quoting tin Anderson man as
speaking of having a heavy crop of
oats and bur clover on the same land.
1 think there must have been some mistake
about that. At least there could
not have been heavy crops of both oats
and clover on the same land tit the
same lime. They will grow on the
same land separately all right; but
they won't mix.
"Another thing that I have discovered
about bur clover," said Mr. Ashe, "is
that about the best way to get it scattered
is through the cows. For a long
time I had an idea that cattle and other
stock would not eat it; but that has
changed. Any kind of stock will eat
the clover, and they like it best abou*
the time it is ripening. Let the stock
eat the Clover, then if you scatter the
stock they will scatter the clover."
