THE PEOPLE'S JOURNAL VOL 12.-NO. 42. PICKENS S. C., THURSDAY, 1)ECEMBER 4, 1902 ~ TEDDY HAS NOT APOLOGIZI WI[AT CLUB WOMEN Al )OING. Bill Arp is Reconelled to t Iden of Womn's Clubs-T' Unblushing IilIence Roosevelt. Atlanta Constitution. I've been watching these women these club women. For a long timi did not like the name, but I am rect ciled. I never visited a man's cli but once. It was a gathering of ye nice, well behaved social gentlom with eatables and drinkable int background, but no body partook excess while I was there. The exce came afterwards, if it came at all. 1i i woman's club has neither eatabl nor drinkables nor cigars. Of cour it is a very social gathering, but the mean business and they do it. On a few years ago a few ladies of th town determined to do something f< the town and they formed " Ti Cherokee Club," and soon had mo: members and wont to work. All th members had passed their teens an the married ones had laid by the crop. They secured a charter an then got a lease from the city and tlh State for fifty years control of ti ground between the hotel block an the railroad, and adorned it with grai and gravel walks, and enclosed it wit a chain fence and placed handsom iron seats by the shade trees, an planted a beautiful fountain in th center and peopled it with gold f1sh This beautiful park is the frolickin ground for the children and a cheerfu resting place for their tired mother and a trysting place for young me and maidens. Near by the trains ar passing at all hours, and our nes beautiful passenger depot is near a hand, where our people congregate t receive their friends or bid them good by. And the club did it all, for the oli depot would still be there if the woue1 had not stirred up the men to demanc another. Then these women began to plan flowers and shrubbery in ,he schoc house grounds, and next they starte< a small library in a small room, ant circulated good books among our peo ple and they kept on anl on until the3 got a larger room and more books, an kept it open two days in a week an the demand for books soon widened to the country and every week they sen out four boxes of sixty volumes eacl along the mail routes, and so hav established a rural circulating librar; that has proven a blessing to our coun try boys and girls, and the books al ways come back unhurt and are sen out on another mission. Next these good women started sewing society among the poorer classe in our community and are taking turn in teaching the girls how to cut gar monts and make them and where the are very poor they give them aid anc com'ort. It is all charity. But last o all and the best of all they have ac tually laid the foundation of a Clul Library building that will hold thous ands of books and where all the bes magazines of the country will be taken The city fathers gave them a beautifu lot and if the weather permits th building will be finished and paid fo and occupied in three months. It wil not only be a library for books, but place for rest for the traveling man a well as for our country friends an their wives and daughterre when the come to town. Besides these uses1 Is intended to have literary and musi cal entertainments there that will b. far more elevating and refining tha the average shows that perform in ou opera house. These same women organized lyceum course for two winters an succeeded fairly well, but to send afe off for lecturers costs too much for town of this size and so they are gemn to secure home talent and talent froi Atlanta and Rome and Dalton an have entertainments at popular price say at 10 cents admission, as Profese< Proctor, the great astronomer did u1 North. HIe told me he never chargt more in a manufacturing town and a ways gave the working people the pr ference of seats and always had crowded houe. It was a cheap at delightful school to them. W hat thei club women will do next I do n know, but they mean business. Thu mean to elevate Uielr own sex first ar if the men and boys come in they w -find hi welcorme. I suppose that th library building will be the first th any club has erected mn the State, ai what.[ wish to remark and emphasi: is that there is not a respt otable tov or village In the State but can do sowl thing on this same line. Now I hear you ask, where did yi -get theioney to do all this? "Heav bgips those who help themselves Our women began with very little. T rAilroad gave them'8$50 to start on a~ gave them part of the seats in the pai Then, the club gave an oyste~r supji aiid made a good little sum.

A thoughtful man* who witnea the laying Qf the. corner stone said .'me/ " ThaMs the best work that ever been started in this to*n ani dping ijhoro to uplift and encour y, our young people than everything else God bless the women." Lord Bacon said, "Knowledge i t power." It is force. It is money. A good libray is better than a university Dr. Johnson said, " Knowledge is ti he wing with which we fly to heaven.' lie One of my boys (Frank) is a civil en of gineer and built two plants of water works in Ohio for Mr. Huntington One day the pump at London got out of order and he went down in the deep -- well to fix it, but failed. A second I time he tried it, but it would not work n- and the water in the reservoir was ib getting low. iIe telegraphed to a ry neighboring town for an expert to 3m come bythe train. 1He came and fixed 2e it in half an hour Frank felt relieved to and thanked him and asked him for s his bill. "'en dollars," lie said; "two at dollars for railroad fare, $3 for fixing as the pump and $5 for knowing how." ie That's it, knowledge is money. -y Some time ago I advertised for a Y copy of General Henry Rt. Jackson's 15 famous speech on the " Wanderer" >r and also for a copy of Daniel Webster's e last and greatest speech inade at Capon e Springs in .June, 1851, in which he e oualilied ill his previous declarations d about the right of a State to withdraw r from the Union under certain contin d gencies. That speech was suppressed at e the North and is not found in his pub e lished works. Well I have been favored with both. s Senator Mangum, of North Carolina, heard the speech delivered and he V with other Southern members of Con gress had it printed in pamphlet form e and his grandson, Wiley Mangum Turner, of Greensboro, N. C., has found it among his grandfather's papers and sent it to me. My friend, Mr. Ed Holland, of Atlanta, Ga., has had both speeches neatly printed in one pamphlet, together with a brief biography of General Jackson by his friend, Joseph M. Brown, and this in valuable pamphlet will be mailed to any address on receipt of 25 cents. It will be sent to stadents of colleges at the cost of publication. Address Ed Holland, Atlanta, Ga. And now here is a letter from an old Federal soldier living at Live Oak, Fla. His name is F. W. Angus, and he belonged to General Sickles' brigade, and two days after a battle in Virginia in 1802 he found in the woods the dead body of a Confederate soldier, and he and a comrade dug a grave and buried him. In his pocket was found a pass from Colonel John S. Reid, colonel commanding Third Georgia re giment, and the name of the soldier was D. P. Williams. Also another pass from Captain D. B. Langston, commanding company K. I find in General Avery's roster the names of both these oflicers, and if pri vate Williams has any surviving rela tives and would like to have these passes I will send them. I wrote in a former letter that the bears of Mississippi had held a con vention and resolved not to come out of their dens to be shot at by any priest or president who slandered Mr. Davis. I am pleased to read that Governor Longino did not invite him there, and that the veterano of Memphis will not attend the ovation that Memphis has promised him. After denouncing Mr. Davis (who was (lead) as the arch r traitor and repudi.aur, it seems to me 1 to be the most unblushing impudence for him to put his feet on. that hallowed ground. He says in his so-called his tory that when Mr. Davis was Gover nor lie vetoed the bill that was passed tto pay the repudiated debts, when the -truth is Mr. Davis never was Governor, nor did he ever advocate repudiation. Teddy, old boy, waeu are you going to r retract and send an apology to Mrs. Davis, who still lives ? You say in your book that we were all traitors Iand anarchists. Hlow about your uncle, r Captain BullochA, who served with Ad a miral Semmes in our navy, of whom ,you wrote so gushingly to Mr. Cunning ham, saying he was a most admirable man and very like the Colonel New come of Thackeray? Was lie a traitor, too ? But Cunnmngham says Teddy is all right and showers editorial praise d upon him in " The Veteran." I i. wonder what the veterans of Missis 3. sippi think of that. a Teddy said : " I'm going to Mis (d sissippi to hunt for bear," andi the a bears said, " Forbear!"

This is a very simple ~ecure, and it will not bring forth from the organs of professional opinion any declaration of unsafeness.

A Columbia correspondent says that South Carolina some time ago took its place as the second cotton manufactur ing State in the Union, and there are features connected with this develop ment that give the subject especial interest. In years prior to the civil war South Carolinians had a very high opinion of themselves and their State, and a cer taii set-was doubtless considered boast ful. If this spirit existed it was for many years crushed nut of existence. Now, however, the people of this State are taking a very keen delight in their manufacturing interests, a great pride in the rapid strides that have been made very largely with home capital, and entirely with home ennrgy and en terprise. While South Carolina is second only to Massachusetts in the manufacture of cotton, she stands first as to the in novations in the application of most modern methods. As exemplifying progress in manufacturing, this little Southern State is leading the world, and she was, as it were, an infant in arms a dozen years ago. In Columbia is the first cotton mill to have machin ety driven by electricity; here, too, is the largest mill under one roof in the world. Again, when experts or men contemplating building wish to see the mill admitted to be the finest in mill construction, the most modern in all appointments, they come here. Mill men from Massachusetts, as well as from Manchester, England, have visit ed South Carolina's capital to witness perfection in cotton manufacturing. The records of the United States agricultural department will show that the greatest yield of corn ever grown on one acre was in South Caro lina, which was in a contest open to the world. It is, of course, well known that' "Carolina rice" ranks first in every market and grocery. The famed Sea Island long staple cotton of this coast is unequalled, and can be likened only to silk. The finest grades are sent to France, and only appear on the market in the form of bilk. The manner in which this silky cot ton is selected and grown would make a story by itself. It demonstrates that the South Carolina planter can be infinitely painstaking and industrious. To grow a cotton that sells for $2 a pound when the ordinary short staple fetches 8 cents, he must have a superior order of intelligence. South Carolina claims the record acre yield for sweet potatoes-the food for man and beast; also for raising the largest hog ever butchered. In five years the growing of tobacco has be come an important industry. The de velopment in this line has been re markable. Where ten years ago the tobacco crop sold for a few thousand dollars, it now yields several millions. It should not be forgotten that in the Palmetto State is the only tea planta tion in America, and that tea raised here brings the highest price of any sold in this country. The oldest cotton mill now running in the State was established in 1838. The next was built in 1845. Then not one for twenty-five years. It was not till 1888 that any Important mills were built. The Columbia mills, built in 1b93, were the first in the State to cost as inuch as a half million dollars. The Olympia Mills In Columbia, finish ed over a year ago, represents more than $2,000,000. In the last four years one-fourth of the entire capital in South Carolina mills has been in vested. There are only thirteen coun ties in which there are no cotton nulls. The agitation about child labor that has been going on for two yeais seems to have had no effect on mill building. There is DO decrease. New mills are going up and 01(d ones are being en larged. It is likely that the Legisla ture that meets in January will dhis pose of- the labor question along lines that will be satisfactory to the mills and t,he children, as well as the hu mane public. With all of this, there is a general prosperity throughout South .Carolina unknown for many years. The people are at peace with themselves. They have ceased fighting oyer politics. The Frost King has been kInd, and permit-| ted cotton to mature in an unexpected manner. Ten bales have been made where, in August, seven and a half were hoped for. 01(1 debts hiavo been paid and November 27 has been a day of real thanksgiving. The married man has~listened to the remarks on femmnine bravery In silence. " I acknowledge that the cases you have cIted, gentlemen," he said at last, " prove beyond doubt that women are courageous, but I assure you that my wife is so full of pluck that she out classes any of these you have men tioned. WVhy, just the other day I saw her fight at the drop of a hat." " What !" demanded the doubtful individual. " Really fight?" 'i,, Bhould say ,so I" replied the raat'ried man. " It was in a depart. ment store and there. were twenty other women preset2t. -You see, the hat had been $15 and the moment It came down to $14 08 she began". At this 'point the fat man ordered the cigars.

But the ' way he loved Aiigeliua, the deep- lin seated, yearning adoration with which he rogarded her, took the edge off his gas appetite and made him morose and taciturn.

" Woman, don't o tamper with my affections. Despera- ye tion is gnawing at my vitals.

It is the of Sout,h Carolina to recov or the is paid for a series of years as far k as it is polssible to go without on iltering the statute of limitatilons, nternal revenue taxes on the liquor le now conducted by that State utin its dispenisary system. s is well known, the Federal gov nent makes no distinctions betw\' cii persons who sell liquors, taxing e those who are engaged in the b usi I lawfully and unlawfully, and with regard to any local taxation or other litions imposed by State or munici legislation. But it is also true that Federal government has no right or the constitution to tax the lal agencies of a sovereign State, n exercised in the performance of legitimate functions of the State. oos not and cannot, for instance, a State bond, or the funds in lie Is of a State treasurer, or the oflico G4overnor. lie State of South Carolina has efore hit upon the notion that un its dispensary system, evory lawful r of liquor is a police functionary, that a Federal tax upon tbe dis mary tralic is a tax upon the poice or of the State.
