THE Fl HST TELEPHONE. Among the interesting papers coming to The In telligencer, none are more carefully gotten up nor filled with more helpful suggestions, and interesting data than The Southern Telephone News, published on the 10th of each month for the employees of the Southern Bell Telephone and Telegraph company, and the Cumberland Telephone and Telegraph com pany. The current number bas Just been received and from it is taken the following story of the first telephone as told by Tbos. A. Watton, who was a worker with the inventor, Alexander Graham Bell: 'To tell the whole story of the experiments that Professor Bell made before tbe telephone was discovered would take hours. I will say a few words about tho first time the telephone was used on an outdoor line. "On October 9. 1876, we were ready to take the baby outdoors for the first time. We got permission from the Walworth Manufacturing company to use their private wire running from Boston to Cambridge, about two miles long. A went to r ?bridge that evening with one of our best U hones, and waited until Bell signalled from the Boston office on the Morse sounder, Then I cut out the sounder and connected in the telephone and listened. Not a murmur came through! Could it be that although the thing worked all right In the house it wouldn't work unJcr practical line conditions? That fear passed through my mind as I worked over the instrument, adjust ing it and tightening the wires In the binding posts, without improving matters in the least. Then the thought struck me that perhaps there was another Morse sounder in some other room. I traced the wires from the place they entered the building, and sure enough I found a relay with a high resistance coil In the circuit. I cut it out with a piece ot wire across the binding posts and rushed back to my telephone and listened. That was the trouble. Plainly as one could wish came Bell's "Ahoy!" "Ahoy!" I ahoyed back, and the first long diBtance telephone conversation began. Skeptics had been objecting that the telephone could never compete with the tele graph, as its messages would not be accurate. For this reason Bell had arranged that we should make a good record of all we eald and heard that night. If we succeeded in talking at ali. We carried out this plan and the en tire conversation was published in parallel columns in the next morning's Advertiser, as the latest startling scientific achievement In fatuated with thc Joy of talking over an ac tual telegraph wire, we kopt up our conver sation until midnight It was a very, happy boy thst traveled back to Boston in the small hours with the telephone under his arm done up in a newspaper. Bell had taken his rec ord to the newspaper office and wea not at the laboratory when I arrived there, but wben he came In, there ensued a jubilation that elic ited next morning from our landlady, who wasn't at'all scientific in her test is, the re mark that we'd have to vacate If we didn't make less noise nights." THE WHIRLIGIG OF TIME. Ed. DeCamp, who ls one of the big men In South Carolina journalism, big because he is able, progres sive and fair, os well as fearless, has just cele brated the 31st anniversary of The Gaffney Ledgor. He has seen Gaffney grow from a little burg to ? city of 8,000 souls, and he hal helped do this by his progressive and fearless stand for the right in. ail case?. We wonder if die people of Gaffney really appreciate the b'i hearted, whole souled, genial citizen DeCar.p ls, or whether or not they treat him as If he wero a being ot another world, simply tol erated and not heeded. We do not think so, for men of bis calibre'are not made to He on the shelf. We congratulate The Ledgor and Gaffney on having a newspaper of such ago and merit. In the editorial columns of The Ledger thc folicw KT.Z appears: Last Tuesday The Ledger passed its twenty first mile post, and with this Issue we start on the twenty-second year. We are old enough to vote now. In those twenty-one year? we have aeon many changes In this town and section. Wo have witnessed the formation of Cherokee 'County, the establishment of half dosen cot ton mills, the development of two magnificent water powers, the obliteration of ferries and the establishment of bridges, the wasting of nearly half million dollars on our pubUc high- . ways, the growth ot Gaffney from 1,000 to 8,000, the establishment of a splendid graded school system in both Gaffney and Blacks burg, the development of bur rural schools to un amazing extent, the erection of business hnn?M| Kynlf hiijMIno- mrtA m.?ahgij.?- '"iTS'i"' modious and elegant residences and hundreds of humble homes. Barns have been torn down . and greater ones built A court house, a library, a city hall, a theatre, a Jail and a guard house have sprung np from the ground aa if by magic. And The Ledger baa grown from a weakling to an established dissemi nator of news and an earnest advocate of those social, moral and industrial forces that gc to build a nation ssti! lt is loved by its friends and Tt?ted bot respected by syco phants. For all of which we are truly grate ful. We start the new year full of hope-hope that Gaffney wilt grow greater, that Blocks burg moy bloom as the rose, that Cherokee may develop as never before, that all our peo ple-both white and black-may ^crease In knowledge and virtue and napplnoss, that bit terness and discord many cease; that the war may speedily come to a cloie, that our farm ers may learn to diversify their crops and step buying paper bags and tte cans, that we may some day-and that soon--have some good ronde, and that we all may live at peace with bur neighbors, our God and ourselves. Wont you Join us tn an effort lo bring about sn?h a condition of affairs? ASSISTANT SECRETARY MI MM LEAVES. The Intelligencer regrets that conditions are such that the Y. M. C. A. cannot retain the services of Mr. D. H. Mime, who baa boen Secretary Burnett's right band man ever since ht came to the city. Mr. Mime is a conscientious and hard working young man, and before bim lies a brilliant future. Our re gret is that it shall be epent away from Anderson, and we hope that there shall come an opening and an inducement sufficient to cause' him to return. Many persons, more than are known, have cause to feel thankful that Mr. Mims bas lived here, and tbe best wishes of scores of his friends follow him to bis new field of labor. That a young man can live in a community as long as Mr. Mlms has lived in Anderson, and leave with everyone wishing him well, is a fine recommendation. We trust he will not lose sight of his ideals but follow them till he reaches the goal of his ambition. WAR ON LIQUOR RAGING TOO. A var of relentless fury Is in progress in Europe, a ivar of rebellion exists in Mexico, but war of religion ls in progress in the United States. "Billy" Suuday has old satan by the throat in Philadelphia, Walt Holcomb has cleaned up Spartanburg, J Wil bur Chapman is undertaking to renovate Atlanta, while three thousand laymen of the Presbyterian church are assembled In Charlotte on "Business for My King." But the greatest activity for moral up lift is the fight against rum. All over this country a constant* and relentless warfare ia being waged agalnat the demon. Out in the wild and woolly West -a country famed for wickednesa in the past-the forces of prohibition are putting in noir.', of their most telling blows. Colorado, Kansas, Oklahoma, North Dakota and several other western States are wholly dry and numbers of them sre more than half dry. The Southern States are rapidly voting out whiskey. If the whiskey trust had any manhood and character about lt and would refuse to violate the letter and spirit of the law and not ship its dam nable product Into territory where a majority of the people have said they did not want it this whole Country would soon be as dry as the Sahara desert. It begins to look like the United 8tates government will have to regulate the operations of the whiskey trust. But that can never be until the two great political parties divorce themselves from the whis key trust.-Gaffney Ledger. A WORD TO YO TN G MEN. t - .-, Young men, there is one thing you cannot do: You cannot make a success in life unless you work -better men than you have tried and failed. You can't loaf around the streets, smoke cigarettes, tel! foul stories, drink whiskey, and sponge on some one else without making a failure of life. You must learn a trade or get into some honest business. If you don't you will be a' chronic loafer, despised by all, producing nothing, simply making yourself a burden on your parents or the State. There is no place in the world for loafers The ripe fruit is all at the top of the tree. You must climb to get it. If you wait for lt to fall at your feet you will never get lt Smarter men jump up and get it It will be a starter. Help yourself and others will help you. There ls no royal road to success. Toll, grit, endurance; these are requisites. Wake np and see what you can do.-Hartwell (Ga.) Sun. ; GOING IT STRONG. Some of tho counties are going lt pretty strong on the bond isaue question.

LEGAL ADVICE" ITEM RETAINED Amendment to Strike Out Item Lost by Vote ol Thirty .to Nine Special to The I nfl I ?gene*-. ' COLUMBIA, Feb. 19.-8enator Jno. F. Williams offered an amendment to strike out the "legal advice" Item of $2,000 in the appropriation bill In the section providing for the governor's office. This precipitated considerable dlecuBsion. The Aiken senator want ed to know the cause of the change from the precedent set by former gov ernor?. Senator Verner thought if Governor Manning had known the re sults of bis correspontence with At torney General Peoples he. would not have made public the correspondence. He favored having- the Item stricken out. Senator Sharpe "also opposed the $2,000 legal advice item and thought it ought to be stricken out. Senators Christensen and Banks were In favor of retaining the Item in the appropriation bill. "I feel as calm as a May morning and as free from any taint of faation alism as I ever have been," began Sen ator Alan Johnstone in defending the action of the financ? committee in in serting the item of $2,000 for legal services. "What ls our duty when there comes reverberative through our minds the condition of careless ness that prevailed in this State for the last four years and when there comes a call from one who bas raised the banner of law and order," said Senator Johnstone. ''It ls our duty to rally for law and order,'" continued the Newberry senator. In reply to questions of Senator Sharpe the New? berry senator said "there were 13 solicitors, but blind tigers have flourished in spite of them." Senators Laney and Appelt both fav ored retaining the item in the appro priation bill. The amendment by Senator Wil liams was lost by a vote ot 30 to 9 and? the item retained.
