A LIBERAL GIVER.
A few days ago the news of a
liberul gift to Coker College by J. L.
Coker was spread broadcast over the
State, and many commenta commend
ing his great liberality have been
heard. Thia is not the first gift from
Mr. Coker for this college, which has
already been heavily endowed by his
liberality, but coming Just at this timo
it will Berve a good purpose. - Ot
course a gift or $120,000 st one time
to any worthy obiect presupposes the
possession cf great wealth, and Mr.
. Coker ia reputed to be wealthy. But
he in not moro so than many other
persons in South Carolina, and he ow
no more affosu to make such hand
some donations to the college than
many other men in tho State could af
ford to give for worthy purposes.
For this liberality and well chosen
objects for endowment, Mr, Coker will
bo remembered long after others more
able to contribute have keen forgos
t*. and have ceased to exist In name
. or In gratitude. The possession of
wealth carries with it great power
and great responsibility. The mau
who has massed, a fortune does have
great power. How he uses lt proclaims
the kind of man he la If he is ar
ni, self centered and miserly lt
were better that he did not possess thc
means which a better man would use
to so great advantage and tor the ad
vancement of his community and his
people, if he is liberal and a con
...tributor to worthy causes, making
glad the heart of those who are his
neighbors and friends, his possessions
will not damn h/'m. How a man can
hoard wealth wheu there are so many
worthy and needed avenues for ita
uso is snrprtr,Iug, but the fact re

.dollars so tight "till the eagle

THF. <0>STITITION AND TUB
"To hell with the constitution" said
a former chief executive of South
Carolina. This doctrine has been re
sponsibly for crimes doubtless, and
has caused many people to feel that
the "chorter of our liberties" has been
defiled, lt is, therefore, very refresh
ing to have thc office of the chief ex
ecutive a man who will not disregard
it but whose desire IB to conform tc
the spirit as well as to the letter of
. overnor Manning wished to securo
the services of a man to be at the
head of one of the most important In
stitutions of the State, the Hospital
for the Insane. It ls a position which
requires a technical training, and an
experience which should be broad and
a training which should be thorough.
The wards of the State were to bo
served by this man, aud he wr." to
stand a? the head of an Institution
provided for Its most helpless and for
lorn class of citizens-no, not citizens,
for then they would have a voice In
their government. Accordingly a man
was selected who was prepafed by
education and experience to be thc
head of this institution, but on ac
count of the fact that the State Con.
stitutlon said he was not eligible tho
appointment was withdrawn. It ls
thus made plain that the chief ex
ecutive will not condemn the consti
tution, but that he will obey its man -
dates. Now, does it not give a feeling
of security that such ls a fact?
The Columbia State, commenting
upon this action of Governor Manning
In a South Carolina town a few
months ago a man was dangerously
sick and required the attention of a
medical specialist. He was too Ul tb!
be moved and the specialist best qual
ified to minister to him lived in Phil
adelphia. They telegraphed for the
Philadelphia physician and he came.
The patient was wealthy, he could af
ford to pay the $1,000 or 92,500 that
was the fee of the specialist.
The other day some 1,600 South
Carolinians were Ul and they required
the care and treatment of a man ex
perienced in conducting a hospital for
presons suffering with thu peculiar
diseases with which they were afflict
ed, Now these people were very poor,
Indeed, people dependent on the char
ity-'of their neighbors-their fellow
South Carolinians. They could not go
to Philadelphia for treatment, neither
could they send- for a Philadelphia
physician. However, the man charged
with responsibility for them, by their
neighbors, the governor, undertook to
do what, in his judgment, was best
for them. Hearing of a man exper
iened in conducting a hospital of the
kind they stand in need of who also
is 5 specialist In the class of diseases
from which they suffer, the governor
tried to engage him to come to South
Carolina and here live and direct tho
hospital. The physician, who was a
resident ot Baltimore, was willing to
come but, lo! the governor found
that he could not employ this physic
ian. The law, the constitution of thia
grand old commonweal th of ours,
stood in the way and blocked it. "Put
none but South Carolinians on
guard!" reads our wise constitution
-or that ls the sense of lt.
Suppose the family of the wealthy
gentleman whom we have mentioned
had been told, after they had tele
graphed for the Philadelphia special
ist, that lt was unconstitutional to
omploy an outsider to attend at the
gentleman's bedside, what would they
have said? .
What, Mr. Reader, think you of the
twaddle about uisng the money . of
South Carolina taxpayers only for. Ute
employment of South Carolinians
when your chlfd needs the attention
of a Baltimore specialist? And what
think yon of a law, your law, that
prevents the employment of a physi
cian of another State, for tho poor
ot South Carolina? To f* sure, lt is
nobody's fault' in particular. Tho
constitution waa made twenty ' years
Ip. thc circumstances, the governor
has done, the best that possibly ho
could do. He has employed a South
Carolina physician and one of first
rate ability and Of the highest char
acter to be superintendent of the Hos
pital for the mentally diseased. While
Dr. Williams has not bcd long expon
rionv'e tn connection' with such a hos
pital, he ts an .ooompllshed physi
cian end has had adtulnistraMve and
business experience from whvch may
be predicted his successful conduct of
tao institution. It la certain that the
patients will receive faithful atten
tait and nothing will be lett undone
to Improve the hospital.

made, it is stated, in accordance with
the policy of the railway to operate
different schedules In the summer
and winter months.
Although it is not definitely known
what day the changes will be effec
tive, lt. is understood that the revi
sion will be made on or about the 15th
of next month. Officials will begin
work on the proposed changes in the
next day or so, and will probably be
in position to make announcements
In making up the schedule for the
summer months special consideration
will be given to Chick prings, the well
known summer resort between Green
ville and Spartan burg, and William
ston which has been made famous
in this state by the chalybeate spring
at that place. Both of these resorts
are frequented by thousands of peo

Organise Neighborhood Marketing As
Now, and not just before harvest,
ls the time to organize marketing as
sociations for whatever products you
aro going to raise this year. No
matter what it Is-cotton, corn, to
bacco, peanuts, truck crops, or what
not-better prices will be obtained,
better grading will be assured, and
more business-like consideration will
.be allowed in every point lt a group
ot farmers will sell instead of mar
keting individually. And if they are
going to sell together, they should
have success predestined by making
arrangements now. Those who walt
UH the crops are about ready to har
vest will find unexpected and unim
agined delays, and will only get ex
perience ia 1916 when they will prob
ably need pronta more than exper
ience. As tbs West Point (Va.) News
well saya in a talk to its farmer read-,
"The world wants all you can
rame this summer. It heeds far more
than can be produced on all our
American farms, but bow ls your pro
duce to reach the place where lt will
bring you the most money?
"Unless the fermera organise and
market their crops under some co
operative system next summer, they
aro going to be greatly disappointed
with prices. The middlemen are or
ganised; they know just where to
place every product and they are go
ing to push the consumer up to war
time prices, and hold you, Mr. Farm
er, doWn to over production rates lt
"Your only hope for a fair division
ot this great wave of prosperity,
which lr surely coming during the
next eight months, ls to get together.

crops so that your output may he

City Crowded With Visitors For
Annual Music Festival.
. SPAF/TANBURG, April 15.-Perfect
weather, a large ?TO wu, superb
singing by the Choral society and
a characteristically warm reception
of the four soloists marked the open
ing of the twenty-first annual Spar
tanburg Musical Festival in the Con
verse college; auditorium. The singing
of the Converse College Choral sb
city was without fault and won the
unstinted praise- of the large au
dience. "The singing of the chorus
this year is the best you have ever
had here," said, Walter * Dam rosen
conductor of the New York Symphony
society orchestra. "Bl!jab" Is one of
Ute most difficult works ever sung by
a chorus, but by love they just came
right up to lt." Dr. Damrosch was
particularly struck with the attack
precision, shading and general re
sponse which the chorus made to bb
direction. Th? interpretation and pre
cision o the chorus waa uniformly
oxcellen?. throughout, but probably
the moat effective chorus of all was
the closing one, "And then shall your
light break forth as tho light of the
