Staff Correspondent The State.
Clemson College, Oct. 14.?With enthusiasm
that a downpour of rain could j
not dampen, the centennial celebra- i
tion of the Pendleton Farmers' societv!
closed today at Clemson, claimed by
the society as its ward. The heavy
condition of the road and the driving
rain reduced the attendance, but Mem
orial hall, in which the exercises were !
held, was nevertheless filled to its capacity.
The program here was featured by
Representative Lever's splendid ad!
dress. Mr. Lever was in fine voice and
! spirits and it was said after the address
that it was perhaps the best
Clemson had ever heard. It was a
ringing appeal to the youth of the land
| to heed the call to arms and by earnest
work place the South where it should
be in the progress of the country.
The rain prevented the dress paI
rade, planned in honor of the visitors,
| but an inspection of the college plant
was enjoyed after entertainment at
I dinner with the 800 students.
On the platform, in addition to officers
and faculty of Clemson college,
.vere Congrssman Lever, Col. Alan
Johnstone of Newberry, president of
the Clemson board of trustees; Reid
Whitford, good roads engineer from :
Charleston; Capt. Samuel G. Stoney,
president of the Agricultural Society
of South Carolina, and other representatives
of this society from the ^
lower counties, and the officers of the
Pendleton Farmers' societv. President '
Fairfax Harrison of the Southern Rail- 1
way was to have spoken, but was ua- :
able to remain for the exercises.
Dr. \V. M. Riggs, president of the <
college, presided, and introduced Col '
Alan Johnstone, who delivered the ad- 1
dress of welcome. Turning to Col. J. :
C. Stribling, president of the Pendle- '
ton society, Col. Johnstone welcomed J
him and his society on behalf of the
trustees of Clemson. He paid a tribute
to the founders of the society, men or 1
liberal education means, he said, who '
founded the society 100 year? ago, not (
only for the good they knew it could !
do, but also to give them a diversion 1
from the humdrum of their lives. 1
These men interested themselves deep- 1
ly in the work of the society and year 1
by year they laid the foundations for 1
Clemson college. It was their influ- I
ence, said Col. Johnstone, that inspired '
Thomas G. Clemson to bequeath his '
property for the founding of such an '
Forefathers Knew Needs. <
Thought of these members of a cen- ]
tury ago, the speaker said, called to
mind the fact that they had been as 1
keenly alive to the agricultural needs 1
of the country as are the agriculturists
of today, and especially in such things
as the use of legumes for restoring
fertility to impoverished soils. These

long time, but, said Col. Johnstone,
men are t.oo much inclined not to disturb
themselves about such things,
even when the knowledge is to be had.
To the Pendleton organization, therefore,
must go great credit for having
been a factor in keeping the principles
of soil building and handing them
1 down to the present. Those of the
! present must now consecrate themselves
to the use of leguminous, crops,
which are nature's way of rebuilding
In similar fasMon, he said, most of
the discoveries of the century just
gone, though apparently marvelous,
were in the end but the wider application
of truths already known. The
trouble with most men is that they are
always looking to discover something
entirely new, instead of trying to dej
velop those things which are already
i at nana.
Col. Johnstone urged the Clemson
students to preserve and foster the
truths that had come down to their
communities and strive to improve the
farms and homes of their neighborhood;
to "use the science of Clemson
to make every cabin home as full of
happiness and comfort as a palace."
"No man," he said /'need be afraid
that his life will not be useful if he
will only set himself to develop the
talents which have been given to
Dr. Riggs introduced Congressman
Lever. Mr. Lever had come with the
intention of delivering a prepared address,
but upon seeing so large a part
of his audience composed of the Clemson
students, he addressed himself es
j pecially to them, holding their atten'
tion from first to last and winning
The War Between the Sections, he
said, had sent to death or maimed for
! life one-tenth of the South's populaj
ticn and had destroyed more than,
i three billions' worth of the South's
wealth. Then had come the saturnliaof
misrule, lasting in this State until tne
redemption ot' the State by Hampton.
As a result it was not until 1S90 that
the wealth of the South had climbed;
back to its 136U mark. Therefore, it j
might truly be said that the present
South began its history in 1890. Mr. j
Lever then showed what wonderful j
aitrpa nau ween ian.c:ii m mat oauii i
(ireeley's Oluess Wrong.
The speaker referred to Horace j
Greeley's famous saying: "Go .West'
young man, and grow up with the!
country." He had come to the con-!
elusion, he said, that Greeley, when j
he said this, could not have foreseen j
the things that are happening in the !
South today, could not have foreseen
the wonderful natural developments,
such as tne coal fields of West iVirginia,
the iron mines of Alabama, the
hardwood industry of the Southern
Appalachians, tne development 01 j
shipping on the world's longest coast j
line, that from Baltimore to Brownsville,
Texas. He could not have known,
for example, that South Carolina contains
more miles of navigable rivers
than any other State, could not have
foreseen the wonderful utilization of
Greeley, said Mr. Lever, could not
have foreseen these things, nor did
he foresee that the South was to become
the great agricultural section of
the world. He did not know that the
experts of the world would be saying
in 1915 that beef cattle and pork could j
? -t 1-- 4,-x? ^:
oe prouuceu nipre cneapiy in me cuul.i ,
than in any other section. He did not
know the value of Bermuda grass,!
which grows so successfully in this j
section. He did not know that science
was to discover that the mosquito was
the carrier of yellow fever and malaria,
thereby enabling the South to
improve its health conditions. Greeley
did not know that by proper
irainage and treatment the coast
country of this State could be made
as fertile as the valley of the Xile.
S'or did he know that in every South
*rn State there was to be an agricul- j
:ral college, training boys in farm
science. Greeley did not know that
South Carolina would today be makng
the greatest strides of its history
n urban and rural education.
South to Front..
Pursuing this idea, Mr. Lever sai-J
:hat Greeley could not foresee that
kvithin a generation the day would
iome when every principal chairmanship
in the house of representatives
tvould be filled by a Southern man, nor
;hat the man who controlled the navy
kvould be a North .Carolinian, that thrlead
of the nation's postal affairs
kvou 1 r3 be a Texan, as would be the at
:orney general, nor that the head of
:he department of agriculture would
be a North Carolinian who received
nis education and inspiration in South j
Carolina. It was not in Greeley's'
dreams that the chief justice of the
nation would come from Louisiana;
r.or could he have foreseen rliat the
?hief executive of 100,000,000 people,
Df a nation whose destiny an3 work
in the near future must put it in th?
front rank of nations, would be a man
born below Mason and Dixon's i?ne and
one who would, receive much of his '
education and inspiration in South
Southern statesmanship, sa'id Mr.
Lever, is again in power and Southern
statesmanship will see to it that a new
freedom, industrially, commercially,
agriculturally, will come about in the
If Emerson could see the splendid
possibilities of the South, of this
Piedmont section, it is likely that he
would be glad to say, in place of his
famous epigram, "The South is but
another name for opportunity."
"But do not think that all is brighc
before you," said Mr. Lever, addressing
the students. "All is not bright before
you without your help."
He reminded them that there are
still huge problems to be solved. With
about 25,000 white men of voting age
as tenants and about the same number
as mill operatives, nearly one-half
of the white voters of the State are
people who do not own their homes.
South Carolina's great problem of the
future is one of home ownership. Another
great problem, he said, is rurai
education. Others are those of rural
marketing and rural finance.
"Your great duty," he said to the
students, "as you leave this institution
is to go back to your homes and
become the leaders around whom the
ambitions and hopes and aspirations
of ivour rural communities shall of
necessity revolve. T iere is your great,
duty, there is your opportunity, that
should be your purpose. The big problems
can not be solved unless these
young men will go forth and dedicate
their lives to solaing them."
W.r. Lever described the unselfish
character of Alexander Stephens,
whose epithaph, "Xon sibi sed aliis,"
meaning "Not for self, but for others,"
might be made the motto of
every young man in South Carolina.
Following Mr. Lever's address, the
Pendleton Farmers' society held a
brief meeting at which Capt. Reid
Whitford, secretary of the sanitary
and drainage commission of Charleston,
explained to the members his plan
for a State highway commission and
a State system of highways, urging
the society to give its support to the!
During the exercises music was fur

COTTON TO BRING
HUNDRED A BALE
Congressman Hefiin of Alabama Says
Need For Staple Will Exceed the
Quantity Available For Use.
Washington, Oct. 17.?iCotton at
more than $100 a bale is predicted by
Representative Heflin of Alabama in a
statement issued from his office.
Mr. Heflin says that the cotton holding
movement in the South will become
general and that prices will soar,
all on account of the fact that the war
is using cotton faster than it can be
produced. He declares that the cotton I
crop for this year will not be over j
1C,000,000 bales and that domestic con-j
sumption will account for all but 2,000,000
bales and that 2,000,000 bales will
fall far short of foreign needs. He
declares that already this year more
than 9,000,000 bales of cotton have
"Cotton prices will be higher than
at any time since the War Between the
Sections," said Mr. Heflin. "Germany
is already in the Southern market buy- :
ing and storiDg cotton for future use.
It will require more than 500,000 bales
of cotton and linters for the manufacture
of powder and high explosive
shells for our army and naivy. The;
cotton holding movement will become!
general in the South before very long I
and then prices will soar. I shall not j
be surprised to see cotton seed selling'
at $60 a ton before Christmas. Cotton i
seed meal is selling as high at $36 a |
ton and some are asKing $4U. uouon j
seed oil has advanced in price and is
in great demand. Cotton seed hulls
are being use more extensively .than
ever and the linters cut from the seed
are being consumed more rapidly than
ever before, when bleached linters sell
for 10 cents per pound. I am expect- j
ing to see $100 and more for a bale of !
coc;on and $60 to $65 for a ton of seed. J

! BIGGEST IN HISTORY
MI ST MEET DEFICIT DURISG THE
Estimates For Departments Will Run
to Something Over $1,200,000,000.
I -w- T>rt? AAA AAA
uelicit mis lear ^o,uuu,uuu.
Washington, Oct. 14.?The largest
estimates of government expenditures
! ever submitted to the secretary of the
! treasury of the United States in time
ot peace will be presented for the next
riscal year tomorrow for discussion
hv f-nn ffrpssional committees inadivanCQ
1 of the regular session. They will bo
! examined in detail by President Wilson
and his cabinet next week.
With an estimated increase for national
defense of about $150,000,000
1 over last year, together with the cost
of new duties imposed on the state department
and other branches of the
! government by reason of the war, it
is possible the amount of the proposed
aDDroDriation will be augmented to a
total of about $1,240,000,000. In congress
agrees to the administration program
for strengthening the army and
navy it will be obliged to provide for
additional revenue legislation or the
executive branch of the government
must issue bonds.
Although no estimate of receipts for
the fiscal year beginning July 1, 1916,
in which the increased expenditures
will take effect has been made by Secretary
McAdoo, officials now are contViov
no n Tint Mlint UTirvn TTKVA
than $750,000,000 for the twelve
months, and some believe the total income
will not go over $700,000,000.
Two Bevenue Measures.
Congress is to be asked to pass two
revenue measures early in the coming
session, one extending the emergency
war tax which expires December 31,
and the other providing for retention
ot the present duty on sugar. Passage
of these measures, however, would not
increase the present revenues. With
both in effect at the present time there
has been a deficit of $35,000,00.
Estimates for government departments,
except state, war and navy, are
virtually the same as last year. Addi
tional forces in the diplomatic and con- >
sular service and. at the state department
and extraordinary expenses
abroad in the work being done by American
embassies and legations will require
an increase of about $1,'300,000
fcr the state department. The $2,000,000
appropriated by congress as &n
emergency war fund for use of that
department has almost been spent, but
much of it already has been or will be
reimbursed, so that the reappropriation
will not represent any real -expense.
Deficit in Sight.
The ordinary disbursements of the
government last year were about
$732,000,000. If the receipts are as
much as $750,000,000 in the coming
year and the appropriations of all
government departments but the state,
war and navy remain the same, there
l still would be, with the added budget
for national defence, an estimated
deficit of more than $135,000,000.
! The secretary of the treasury now has
authority to issue Panama canal bonds
| to the amount of $240,000,000. That
would be a temporary remedy, however,,
and may not be resorted to if
the administration proceeds on the
theory that the government will mainM*ir>
tvio camp ratp of pxnenditures for
\ Laill IUV 4
I national defense during coming (years
as now is being proposed for the next
session of congress.
Estimates for the department of
commerce will show an increase over
last year's total?$16,774,000?if they
are agreed upon in the form now befc/ie
Secretary Redfield. The principal
request for more money will come
from the bureau of foreign and domestic
commerce, which desires to
take advantage of the opportunity af!
forded by the war to extend its foreign

I geodetic survey wants an appropria|
tion for a thorough survey of the Alaa!
The department of labor contemplates
few changes in estimates, which
last year amounted to $4,443,000.
Estimates for the postoffice department
will be slightly above the $299,I
000,000 estimateed for the present iyear.
j The increase is credited to the auto
matic promotions of carriers ana
clerks provided for by congress, increased
pay for railway transportation
in the Middle States and -the natural
growth of the system. Estimates for <
the department as a whole wrere prepared
with a view t oresumptian of
normal peace conditions.
In the interior department, estimates
are less than the appropriation of
$210,000,00 for the current year, excluding
$8,000,000 far construction of
the government railroad In Alaska.
Secretary Houston of the department
of agriculture had not completed his
estimates tonight, but they will not
vary much from the present appropriation
of about $24,000,000.
