Legislators Getting
Down to Business
Columbia, October 12.-The
general assembly is facing the
reaL work for which it wa; con
vene in extra session this its
seco{ad week, that work being
reduction of the cotton acreage
in 1915 - The house converted
Aoday at. noon, and the'senate
will reassemble tonight at 8
o'clock. Acreage reduction *ill 1
at once be taken up in both I
houses. .
In the house a special com- t
mittee is -readv to introduce a
bill providing for reduction in
cotton acreage next year and
E
limiting the planting to six t
acres . to the work animal. A
sub-committee of the ,special
committee which considered the
acreage reduction proposalsI
drafted the bill.
A bill favoring total elimina- (
tion of the cotton erop for 1915,
will also be introduced, lut advo
cates of this drastic plan are*
facing what is apparently a:
hopoless fight. On , e senate
I
side Senator John L. McLaurin!
has a resolution declaring it to
the sense of the upper chan
no cotton should be
ated next year. The Marl
boro senator has already made I
two speeches for his resolution.
Senator Alan Johnstone of New
berry opened the debate against
total elimination. He warned
the general assembly against so
revolutionary a step, but favored t
a decrease in acreage which
,s
would prevent a surplusage of'
cotton. Senator Johnstone ap
parently voiced the sentiment of
the overwheltbing majority of
the senate on acieage reduction,
and several senators compli
mented h is wise stand. He'
pointed out that turning from
planting no, cotton to planting f
all grain was just as liable to
result in a surplusage of grain
next year as surplusage of cot- t
ton, and he said the grain was 9
harder to handle. Then the
Newberry senator warned his I
colleagues that forbidding the t
planting of cotton might work
hardship on the poor white e
farmers and cause some of them s
to emigrate. He pleaded for a
law which would meet with the
approval of the people's judg- I
ment and view and one in
which they would cooperate in
enfbrcing.
The quickness with which the
senate killed the proposals to
postpone payment of taxes and E
for a bond issue to complete the
.asylum illustrated their inten
tion of consideripg only sound 'C
9, measures. Both bodies have t
voted to limit activities to emer- a
gency legislation affes~ing the t
cotton situation and to such '
local bills as are unopposed.
Had the scope of the session
not been limited the flood gates'
would have been flung wide to
local legislation and the mem
A bers would have been swamped. t
As it is, they are going to con- 1l
sider and seem certain of pass
ing an act reducing cotton i
acreage, and those who are well t
posted say this is all that will t
be done. s
Senator McLaurin has a bill d~
to establish a state warehouse V
e system for storing and grading Y
cotton. It received a favorable "
repprt from a senate committee, f
and" is now on third reading. fi
The house committee gave it an f'
unfavorable report, and reports a
from that body make its passage 1
extremely doubtful. t
Dr. Wade Stackhouse, the
president of the State Cotton a
congress, and several members F
are waging an earnest fight for B
total elimination of the cotton P
crop for next year. There is a s
cry going up that par tial reduc- B
tion will not accomplish the pur- P
pose for which it is intended,the y,
financing of this year's crop at a B
figure which will save the cotton p
producer and the business people
of the South from loss. But the T
sentiment appears to be againstB
total elimination, not only be
cause there is doubt of the con
stitutionality of such a radical
step, but fear that the people will
not stalid for it.
- "Freak" bills have' already
- made their appearance. Mr. a
Gray of Anderson introduced E
one forbidding anyone not in the I
employ of a corporation to hold d
office in this state, but except- 0
ing such as were worth at least *
$100,000 or were newspaper men. g
Of course this was instantly1=
killed. Mr. Fortner has reintro- b
doced his bill forbidding persons
.of one race from teaching in
schools of another race, and fora
a fiat two-cent passenger rate
on railroads. Under the resolu
tions adopted by the two houses
these bills cannot be considered
.at this session. *I

BELGIUM AGAIN
CENTRE OF WA
b Gennans Making Desperate Assault 0
Antwerp, The Temporary Capital
Of The Belgians
AISNE BATTLE UNTETTLEI
Allies Have Forced Battle Line Tro Be
gian Border-Operations Ex
tend To The Coast
r Belgium is once more the scene c
the fighting of the allied armies C
France and England against the Gei
mans. During the past week the a
lies have succeeded in pushing th
G'erman armies back to the Belgiai
border. Antwerp,' the temporary capi
tal of Belgium, and one of the strong
est fortified cities in the world is b
ing besieged by the Germans. Th
wo!ld awaits the outcome.
The battle of the Aisne, which wa
in progress north of the Aisne rive:
ii France for more than a month, wil
go down in history as one of the greal
est battles the world has ever knowr
The area over which the fighting oc
curred occupied almost the entir,
portion of France and at times th,
main battle lines extended over 154
miles in length. The casualties 01
both sides were astounding.
For days the great armies of the a]
lies and the Germans swayed back ant
[ forth. At some points the allies woul<
gain the advantage, while at other:
the Germans were victorious, but dur
Ing thesydays neither side were abl(
to gain an appreciable advantage. Fol
lowing desperate fighting on botl
sides for several weeks the battlh
settled down to a siege. It was ever
predicted by military experts of th
contending nations that winter woul(
find the contending armies still fight
ing on the northern border of France
The predictions that have been madE
by writers that areoplanes would pla3
a prominent part in the future war.
has in part become true. Althougl
they have failed so far to live up t<
the expectation of the writers when i
came to destroying whole fleets o:
ships and entire cities, but they havE
proven themselves indispensable ir
aiding the armies in battle.
It- has -been the aeroplanes that have
sdared over the battle lines that 10
cated the strength of the enemy ant
made it possible for the commanders
to keep in touch with what was going
on along a huzidred mile battle line
Raids over Paris were made by Ger
man aeroplanes during the past weel
and the British aircraft succeeded ir
making another successful excursior
into Germany. The damage done ir
both flights were slight.
The war in Europe has been in
progress for more than two months
and so far there has been no decisive
battles fought either on land or on
sea. It now appears that the war
will last through the winter with al
ternate victories for the combatants.
The battle of the Aisne between the
allies and the Germans in the north
of France has developed into a siege
and may last for weeks longer. The
greatest activity is now being -found
in East Prussia and Poland where
the great armies of Russia are pre
paring for an invasion into Germany.
Germans Defeated In Prussia
-The fierce struggle which has beez
going on between the Russian and Ger
man troops along the Niemen river,
In East Prussia for nine days, ended
with a comiplete victory for the Rus
sians, according to dispatches fromx
Petrograd, the Russian capital. The
fact that Czar Nicholas has left the
captal to join his armies in Prussia
and that Kaiser William of Germany
Is already on the ground testifies tc
the lmportance of this campaign.
European Rulers With Armies
An important development in the
war in Europe is the report that four
of the rulers of the countries at war
are at the front. When the condi
tions in East Prussia grew to alarm
lg proportionzand a Russian Invasion
menaced Germany, Kaiser William
hastened to East Prussia. King Al
bert of Belgium has been constantly
with his troops In their fighting
against the Germans in Belgium. Czai
Nicholas has left Petrograd for the
German border.
President Poincare of France has
gone to visit his troops fighting the
Germans In north France.
Gen. Von Moltke Not Removed
Rome.--Inquiries'made in Gebmar
military circles with regard to reports
that Gen. Von Moltke had been remov
ed as chief of the general staff-of the
German army, brings forth the state
ment that the report is incorrect. The
report, it Is declared, probably w*as
caused by the change of officers made
in the German quartermaster general's
department, where Gen. Von Voight
Rhets was appointed to succeed Gen.
Von Stein. Gen. Von Moltke retains
his post.
Belgian Capital Mved To Ostend
Washington.-An official cablegranm
to the Belgian legation here announc.
ed the Belgian government had been
removet from Antwerp to Ostend. E.
Havenith, the Belgian minister, in
making this announcement, declared
the act had no political significance
and that no matter if all of Belgiun
fell into the hands of the Germans
Belgium would make no terms witi
the enem~y before similar steps were
taken by the allies.

London.-Belgium once again is thl

According to a German report re

with Antwerp is interrupted. It was
reported also that the king tof the Bel
glans had been slightly wounded.
Antwerp Forts Are Destroyed
The severing of communication hac
been expected, for the Germa s ha

"The fighting on the East Prussia'

"In the forest of Massalstchizna,

British Airships Raid Germany
London-The following of ficial
statement was issued covering an at
tack by a British air squadron on a.
German airship shed at Dusseldorf.
"The secretary of the admiralty an
aounces that Squadron Commande:
Grey reports that, as authorized, he
carried out with Lieut. R. L. G. Marix
and Lieut. S. V. Sippe, a successful at
tack on a Dusseldorf airship shed.
Lieutenant Marix's bombs, dropped
from a height of 500 feet, hit the shed,
went through the roof and destroyed
a Zeppelin.
"Flames were observed 500 feet
high, the result of the igniting of the
gas of an airship.
"All three officers are safe, but their
aeroplanes have been lost.
"The feat would appear to be in ev
ery respect remarkable, having regar i
to the distance of over one hundred
miles penetrated into country held by
the enemy and to the fact that a pre
vious attack had put the enemy on
I their guard and enabled them to mount

ALLLIES CLAIM TO HAVE RIEPUS

ANTWERP QUIET AFTER FALL

Claim Gains in the- East.
London.-With the conclusion of
that phase of the war of the nations
which came with the fall of Antwerp,
the censorship again has drawn a
veil over the fighting In the greater
part of the European continent.
The French communication deals
only with the series of battles which
has been in progress for four weeks
from the east to west in France with
an ever-extending line which now
reaches northward from the elbow at
Noyon to and across the Belgian bor
der at Armentieres. /
The statement says the allies have
held their positions everywhere and
that German cavalry, which was at
tempting to envelop the allies' left
wing, and had seized points of passage
on the Lys, east of Aire, was defeated
yesterday and retired northAast Into
the Armentieres district.
At the same time the Germans de
livered a vigorous attack on the right
bank of the Ancre River between Ar
ras and the Olse, without making any
progress.
This indicates that the battle in
Picardy, comprising the department
of Somme and pait of Oise, Pas de
Calais and Aisne in which the cavalry
Is participating on a scale not seen iqn
previous modem wars, extends over a
considerable area. Here are many
miles of open country, where horse
men can maneuver with advantage.
Between the Oise and Rheims, par
ticularly in the region northwest of
Soissons where the British forces are
entrenched, further progress has been
made. It thus seems probable that
the Germans have abandoned some
of their strongly entrenched positions,
in this neighborhood. It is reported
that sanitary reasons have compelled.
this. The trenches in which the troops
have been living for weeks have be
come breeding places for disease.
The Germans have resumed their
night attacks between Craonne and
Rheims, which, according to French
accounts, have been repulsed. From
Rheims to the Meuse nothing of im
portance has occurred of late, but in
the Apremont district of the Woevre
to the east of St. Mihiel, the Germans
made VIolent attacks during the night
of October 9 and the following day.
Apremont was taken by the Ger
mans, but was retaken by the French
and remains In their hands. The
Germans apparently are determined
to maintain as far as possible their
positions here, where they have
pierced the line of fortification be
tweenVerdun and Toul along the Riv
er Meuse. Should- they be successful
against th allies elsewhere 'this
doubtless would be the route by which
they would endeafor to enter tie
heart of France.
,Two Germani aeroplanes, which
seem to choose Sundays for their
visits, flew over Paris. They dropped
a score of .bombs, which killed three
persons and wounded 20, but did no
material damage.
Part of the Antwerp garrison and
two thousand of the British naval vol
unteers, who crossed into Holland
and laid down their arms, have been
Interned and will have to remain there
until the end of the war. Some of the
Germans also unwillingly crossed the
frontier, and were treated similarly.
Of refugees there appears to be no
end. The Dutch towns are crowded
with people who' left their homes In
Belgium.
Hollanders are finding difficulty In
providing for them. The Germans,
however, have invited the refugees
to return to their own country, prom
Ising them fair treatment.
England also continues to be a
place of refuge for many fugitives,
wounded officers and men, who are
crossing from Ostend on the regular
steamers.
Of the battles In Galicla and Poland
the Russian staff has decided to say
nothing for the present,. but the Aus
trians declare a recent attack on
Przemysl was repulsed and that the
Russians have evacuated trenches on
the western front, which the Austri
ans occupied.
The Austrians also claim victoriesI
over the Russian at Lancut and Dy
now in Galicia. Jt is'known that they
have received reinforcements. This,
Petrograd admits, has compelled a
change in the plans of the Russian
army.
The '"Montenegrins claim a victory
over the Austrians in Bosnia, where
they say the Austdians tried to cut
off the -Montenegrin army proceeding
to Sarajem, but were defeated with
heavy losses.
More alarming reports come from
Italy of the spread of cholera in Aus
tralia. The Roumanian government
hasthought It necessary to take pre
cautions for- the protection of the
Austrian legation at Bucharest. Tur
key, too, is making preparations of a
war-like character. The young Turks
are said to be largely under the in
fuence of the Germans.

An Explanation
I wrote a little note last week
about the Pickens association
and spoke of Bro. T. J. Watts
being uresent and making some
good speeches. I also said that
Brother Watts was brought up
in the Roman Catholic church
and knows what it means to
train the young, etc. Some of
the people seemea to misunder
stand what I intended to say.
I want to make-it plain if possi
ble: Brother Watts was trained
as a Roman Catholic and he is
now a genuine, Christian and an
earnest, faithful Baptist preach
er and he believes that we ought
to begin to train children when
they are young, to train them
in the christian faith so that
when they are old they will not
depart therefrom.
