PICKENS, S. C.,:
Thursday, October, 9, 1902.
Some of the Republican hosts
are no doubt wishing that Roose
velt had "gotten it in the neck"
instead of the leg.

Evan P. Howell has been elected
mayor of Atlanta. And now his
friends are predicting that he will
be a How(el) hug success as may
The numorcus applications that
are made for houses to rent these
days in Pickons is hut an indica
tion of the wave of prosperity that
is unmistakably upon us.
1)ospite the hindrances from
rainy weather, farmer have by closr
attention and work at th right
times, managed to. save the hay

"The public school is the placc
to which wo should turn chief at

more beautiful public lifo in Amer

Juan need hopo for his full share of
the public patronage who does not
keep himself in touch with the
people, and let them know all
along that his business is managod
in such a way as to meet the de
mands of public necessity and pop.
There could not be a bettor time
to plan and move for a summer
hotel in Pickons than right now.
This kind of onterprise, organized
with suflicient capital to buihld and
equip it and advertise, would do as
nmuch for Pickens and the country
about aB anything pOssihio of sug.
geation within moderate bounds.
And when we think of it, the
soheme would not require such an
enormous outlay to make it the
success it should be. All present
advantages would contribute to
Elvan P'. Howell, of the Atlanta
Constitution has beenu elected may
or of Atlanta, over two other can
didatos for the office, Moss Johnson
and Woodward. Mr. Howell's
majority over the two shows some
thing of newspaper influence in
Georgia, for it was a warm fight
from start to finish. There is not,
so much difference in elections,
whether in Georgia or South Car
olina, but in Georgia they general
ly manage to stump the field with
out having the speakers always to
gether. Each has his appointed
time to speak and thus the business
of camplaigning is not so oembarras
sing to the candidates.
AS TO EDUCATION.
Governor Aycook of North Oar
olina is reported to have said re.
eently: "The people have a rilght
to the privilege of education and
it is the duty of the state to guard
and maintain that right. The
otrongtha of overy community is
dependent on the average of the
Iuteligence of that commnunity,
and this intelligeuce Is dependent
upjon the education of the entire
mnass and not..of the fews " No
tr'uer or .better or more timely
Words have soer been~ spoken byi
G*overnor or private clitsn and, the
people are reoognising this and
striving bravely for the aooonm.
,Plishment of the things towards
W1hi,h education is the greatest

It is hero that the products an<

surprising information is concen

THlE COAL STRIKE SITUATION.
T1he failure of Presidont Rooso,
volt to bring about an agreoment
betweon the operators and the
nine strikers is a great disappoint
iienit to tho iiationt. Whii Cle)ossi
bly iliany had1( little faith ini the
abilit y of the P'resident to aidj ust
the di fferences, yet the mere fact
that the P'residenut inivitod both1
sie to a joint conference in
Washington, anid both the mine
owners and strikers so readily
agreed to meet with the President,
things at leaist looked hopeful
Fortunately, in Pickens and Pick
ens county the failure to end thle
strike is of little consequene.
Providence is lavish in the supply
of fuel in this part of the world.
Bunt in the large cities of the ios th,
the manufacturing inlternsts will
be seriously crippled and the suif.
foring among the poor this~ winter
wvill be appalling. There is al
ways more or less suffering, even
when the sup)ply of coal is abun
dant and a crisis stands before the
nation which it has hiot yet in its
history had to face.
TIhe conference which so many
hiad expected so much from, has
ended in dismoI failuro-ini fact
worse thani failure, as both sides
are only more determined than
ever to coatinuo the strike to the
bitter end. Many are ol the opin
ion that the President was too
lenient in his dealing with the sit
uationl. A.We doubt that from
the fact that It w as
special request of the President
that the contending parties come
to Washington for a special oon
ference with the President.as peace.
malker and it would have been un.
usual to change a peace conference
inlto war. We belleve however,that
the President am the head of this
nation is going to have to take the
matter up again very moon, much
as he seems to dread is, and deal
in a much more "strenuous" way
with the operators than in the
peace conference. The striker.
left that conference in a much bot
ter light in the eyes of the nation
than did the operators: They
agreed to leave the matter solely
in the hand, of a committee ap'
pointed by the 1resident, fanim
showed their bblief i the justice
of their gause. Thbe operators re,
