THE UNFORTUNATE STRIKE.
The strike at the Equinox mills just
at this time Is most unfortunate. The
people of Anderson and of the entire
county have Just been rent., ratulhtlng
themselvRH that every rntl ?n ??111 In
Anderson was running on full time,
and that the wages being paid the
operatives would go far towards keep
ing up trade conditions and business
la and around Anderson. Nov.- thi ?
hope has been shattered and u strike
Is on.. Hundreds of families are
thrown out of employment and If this
condition Ib allowed to continue, suf
fering will bo sure to follow. It la to
be deplored that something could not
have been done to avert the strike. It
will .be much more to be deplored If
nothing' can be done to slop it. The
Intelllgoncor docs not *-lsh In this
editorial to have anything to sa?' as
to the rl?ht and the wrong of this
disagreement between tbe officials of
the .milt and the striking weavers.
Each pldo, of course, thinks it is right,
and mu.?jf think so Btrongly to main
tain Jbj position as they are doing.
What we wish to do is to call at
tention to the fact that tho commun
ity ?li?' 'ha? 'some rightd. and that it
is a duty bo?li sides to this disagree
ment.owe to tho community to <nake
earnest j PJ d conscientious efforts to
settle' thfrlr differences, so that work
may ;b?,resumed, and the consequent
suffering and loss avoided. The civic
life of Anderson cannot afford to have
this Industrial plant shut down at tills
time, and ' a "give nnd take" policy
should' be pursued on both Bides.
Sc-, w.s .confidently ex pect and hope
that reason will prevail and that the
disagreement will prove only tempo
rary. If there Is a desire to be "bull
headod" on the part of any connected
in any way with this unfortunate dis
agreement let thOBe who foel thlj way
step aside and allow coot and disin
terested persons to adjudicate the
matter. .The cotton mills of this sec
tion have been very free from dif
ferences of opinion ' resulting in
strikes, and we trust this is only a
temporary cessation of work mid that
we shall have but little more of it
now or at any time.
If each farm In uny community Is
clean, tidy, and well kept, presenting
a thrifty, homo-life appearance, the
whole neighborhood will bo atractlve
to visitors and satisfying to residents.
Local and county fair boards might
create a very valuable farm Improve
ment habit by offering a liberal prize
for tbo beBt planned farm in a neigh
borhood or In a county.
"Have the rocks on this placo been
hydrated?" asked a Florence editor of
one of the college professors. "Too
much expert knowledge for a mere
newspaper man." remarked another.
''Shortly, you have shown us every

City of Distress to tho genial chef at
Clemson, after being shown the . Im

"No, t have not shown it to you. but
we' have one," was the reply. . The
Spartanburg editor went thirsty.
"I do not like to give tho news to
the students tomorrow, morning at

"There are too many newspaper here

and by a wurd or look culling from |
this great ur that at his pleasure, a
recital of the work he had done In
some particular line.
The, real' purpose of the conference
between the editors of"the daily news,
papers-and the. demonstration agents,
was to devise means by which eacu
could be more helpful to the other.
Every - demonstrator unhesitatingly
stated that he "considered the coopera
tion of the newspapers an invaluable
asset to his work. The newspaper
editors styted that they believed the
work being done by these demonstra
tors of the greatest impoi tance, and
were willing to cooperate with them
In every way possible to spread their
gospel of better farming. Some really
helpful suggestions were made .on
each side, and an effort will bo.made
to build-up a news feature of the
work su that concrete examples of
what is being done in every county in
th State may be available to wie ucwa
papers. This will doubtloss be
handled through the demonstrators
direct, in a iargr- measure, and
through the State headquarters at
Cle-nson College. A system of reports
with special mention of meritorious
work will doubtless be arranged, and
from these reports Prof. Long will
cull- what will be helpful to every
county and forward this to the news
It was a great meeting. It is evi
dent that the greatest constructive
work in South Carolina Jus now is be
ing dono by Dr. Long and his corps
of able assisants, who are using such
sound and logical methods to reach
the people who need to be reached,
and to help them to help themselves.
The figures in Prof. Long's annual re
port were astounding. His work cost
a total of $54,000, two-thirds of which
wan contributed' by the National gov
ernment, and resulted in a profit to
the people of the State of $2,500,000.
This..total-is made up by auoh Items
us this: Demonstrators mixed at the
homes of farmers 223,000 tons of com
mercial fcrt'llzer at a saving to the
farmers of $4 per ton. Twenty one
thousand eight hundred forty-five
trees pruned and sprayed; $34,131 of
poultry and eggs sold through demon
strators. Corn yields raised from S or
c bushels to 35 or 45 bushels per acre.
Wheat acreage increased over 200 per
cent In a year; 98,200 acres of cover
crops planted ; 198.240 pound b of vetch
and clover seed saved by the farmers
for future planting, etc. etc.

Charleston has a warm admirer and
a strong defender in the person of the
librarian of Clemson College. Misa
Anne Porcher engaged several of the
editors In a worry war on the subject
of how to enforce law in Charleston.

on the silver dollur came from. It

EDITORS OFF DUTY.
The editors at (.'letuson College
found several hundred ordinary cub

"The Hterucy test and the tests and
restriction?? which accompany it con
stitute an even more radical change
in the policy of the nation. Hither
to we have gcnorously kept our doors
open to all who were not unfitted by
reason of disease or Incapacity far
self support or such personal records
and antecedents as were likely to
muke them a menace to our peace
und order, or to the wholesome arid,
essential relationships of life. In this
bill it is proposed to turn away from
tests of character and of quality, and
to impose tests which exclude and
restrict; for the now tests here, em-.,
bodied are not tests of quality or of"
character or of personal illness, but
tests of opportunity. Those who
come seeking opportunity are aot to
be admitted unless luey nave already-j
had one of the chief of the opportun- |
ities they seek?the opportunity of
education. The object of such provls- I
ions is restriction, not selection.
"If the people of this country have I
made up their minds to limit the
number of immigrants by arbitrary
tests and so reverse tho policy of all '
the generations of Americans tbfct
have gone before them, it Is ' their
right to do so. I am their servant
and have no license to stand in their
way. Hut 1 do not believe that they
havc. I respectfully submit that tiu
one cau quote tholr mandate to that
effect. Has any political party ever
avowed a policy of restriction in this
fundamental -natter, gone to the
country on it, and been commission
ed to control its legislation? Docs
tliis bill rest upon the conscious and
universal assent and desire of the
American people? I doubt It. It is
because I doubt It that I make bold
to dissent from it. I em willing to
abide by the verdict, but not until it
has been rendered. Let tho plat
forms of parties speak out upon this
policy and the people pronounce their
wish. The matter Is too fundamental
to be settled otherwise.
"I have no pride of ooinion on this
question. I am not foolish enough to
profess to know the wishes and 'deals
of America better than the body of
her chosen representatives know
them. I only want instruction direct
from' those whose fortunes with ours
and all men's, are involved."

The Store with a Conscience
ANXIOUS 10 ERECT
THE GRAIN ELEVATOR
H. ML STRATTON, OF CH?CA
GO, HERE IN INTEREST
BID FOR BUILDING
Make* a Special Study of Eleva
tors and Is a Believer
in the South.
. Mr. H. M. Stratton, representing tue
Bnrrell Engineering & Construction
.Company of Chicago, was in Ander
son last night In conference with lo
cal persons interested in the construc
tion of the grain'elevator. Mr. Strnt
ton's Arm bas'made a tentative bid
covering the building of the plant,
and is anxious to close a deal with
M'essr. . Edw H. Richards of Willow
City and the local stockholders in the
elevator project to build the plant.
Ho wlH today meet with other parties
Interested, and will later see Mr.
Fichant* in C hicago with reference to
Mr. Stratton will bo here until this
afternoon, Svhen he will. leavfe for
Dai nib rid ce and Athens, Qa.% both of
which cities' propose the erection of
grain elevators. .
Mr. Stratton has made - a- soeclal
study of grain elevators for the South,
and is'a'firm, believer in their possi
bilities in this section, and' through
out the South. He May? thai in North
Louisiana the construction of grain
elevators was begun about five years,
ago when the boll woe vil drove thel
cotton plant out aad grain was sub
stitute instead;' he says that nil of
these plants are doing splendidly in
that part of Louisiana aad few people
there now think of planting cotton,
except upon a very moderate scale.
It has In fact, according to Mr.
Ktratton, revolutionized conditions nil
over North Louisiana. Such Condi
tions will also prevail here, only on a
larger scale, since tho hinds. are bet
ter and the farmers in better shape
to prosecute grqln planting, not.hav
ing' become almost bankrupt through'
the boll weevil.
Mr. Stratton says that Anderson Is
u splendid location for a plant, and
i that it will pay well here and bo of
' great heneflt to the entire county.
