Unquestionably the greatest man
in the world today the ex-President
deserves all the honors possible
to bestow on him. Taft has
failed to measure up o the expectations

supporters anr it is very doubt- (
ful if he will be able to secure a
nomination for the usual second 1
term. The contrast following
Roosevelt it would have been impossible
for any man to show up 1
to advantage . The election of 1
Governor Hughes to the supreme 1
court bench removes from the field
of political prominence the strongest
man, next to tht ex-President, 1

Gaynor continues to loom up
as the leader of prominence in the
Democratic party. What a pity

Great Tilings Are Being Planned,
Which Will Benetit the Entire
Mr. E. S. Boney, Writing from Clernaon
College to the Newe and Courier
under date of June 7, Bays:
The future of Clemson College
seems to be the uppermost thought in
the mind of those with whom 1 have
talked while here, both professors and
is already a great factor in education
for industrial education in South
Carolina, surpassed by none in the
South, and that its influence and
work shall extend into every state in
the South-land, is the idea that dominates
the mind of acting President,
Riggs, Trustees Johnstone, Manning
and Evans,and all the professors,
many of whom Imet and spent several
Ofcourse, these men naturally think
think that there is already a "real
college at Fort Hill," that Clemson Is
already a great factora in education
In South Carolina; they do not boast
but they pride themselves in what
has been accomplished. But, their
thought is for a future greatness,their
iesires are for larger things,' and
their plans are being laid accordingly
"Clemson College" Bald Trustee
Manning yesterday, "Is planning
large things for the people of this
state. The scope of Its influence is
not to be confined to* the boyswho
attend school jthere but it is to reach
>ut into every nook and corner of the
state. It is an agricultural college,
ind Its aims are for the* agricultural
ievelopement of the state at large.
K. great deal of money is to be spent

>y, "Clemson," said he,"does not inerfere
with the success of thederaomnational
colleges of the state. It has
sided them, instead. Never in the
siBtory of the state, were the colleges
injoying such prosperity; all of them
ire full to overflowing; all of them
ire enlarging and their for the future
vere never so bright. The success of
"lemson has encouraged an Increased
latronage of other colleges. Knowl
dge begets knowledge nd athe colege
habit is contagious. The trusees
are looking to the future of demon;
they are laying plans for a grea?
r college, one that will rank second
o none in the south.
If there is any man in the state
horoughly in earnest and wholesoulihip
devoted to the dutesies withwhich
le is entrusted that man is the Hon.
Uan Johnstone, chairman of the
>oard of trustees. Mr. Johnstone regards
his position seriously; he ap
)ears to be thoroughly In love with
lis work In connection with the institution,
and he is hopeful of the
>utlok. While I did not have the opportunity
of talking with Mr. Johnston
as long as I desired, nevertheess,
in the shoit conversation on the
subject, I was impressed with his
leep concern as to the future of the
allege, its enlargement and development
into the new lines mapped out.
Acting President Riggs at once impresses
the most casual observer with

loesn't stay still very long at a time;
le is always on the move, always dong
something, and yet he moves not
s-Jth a nervous energy, but with the
juickness of systematic dispatch,
knowing what is to be done and how
lo do it with the greatest facility.
\nother thing, he appears to be
thoroughly in touch with every phase
;>f life on "the hill." For instance,
tlie other afternoon 1 saw
him in the president's office with
a pile of pepars about him. Very
shortly afterwards I saw "him on
the campus, "blue prints" in hand
directing the laying of foundation
work for a new cottage, and
then, he knows what is going on
in the various departments of the
thoroughly acquainted himself
with the financial situation, the
sou sources of revenue, and the exact
channels into which the funds
are directed. In short, he seems
to be "at the head of things at
In speaking of Clem son's work,
Mr. Riggs was enthusiastic in his
hopes and beliefs, and anyone
hearing him could not but catch
the spirit. His confidence in the
future compels admiration, for it

reason why, if the present plans
are carried out, it should not attain
that position."
Prof J. N. Harper, director of
the experimental work, says that
his aim is to make his department
of the college "the authority for
all matters pertaining to agricultural
pursuits." His excellent
forces and the methods now being
emploked under his able directions,
are calculated to force one
to the belief that his ambition will
be realized.

"labor contract law,"

laborers under contract to work
