LAURENS, S. C, OCTOBER 16, 1907.
In Greenwood the two warehouses are
in a controversy. One of them has re
IW M^Uie price of storing cotton to 10
f jh?nth; perhaps the other has
^Tor will follow its example.
T*hv /djeems to be some feeling in the
matter but if cotton can be stored and
insured for 10 cents a bale a month,
- ?that ought to be tho price and it is
pleasant to observe that there is com
petition in the business. At the same
time, farmers should remember that j
the warehouseman is entitled to a profit.
If the prices are cut too low, the ware
house in time will have trouble and go
out of business. Nor should it be imagined
that becauso a little company earns
ten or twenty per cent, even, one year
its profits are too high and its rates ex
tortionate. A small company must, to
succeed, earn bigger profits than a large
company. When a bad fire or other
disaster comes along, its entire earnings
for years may be wiped out. A com
pany of any kind with $20,000 capital in
Laurens might be earning 100 per cent,
a year and yet its stock might be re
garded as mighty poor collateral for
loans in Charleston or Savannah. Why?
Because small enterprises are not looked
upon as stable investments by outsiders.
Outsiders always consider that big
profits of a little concern may disap
pear in a short time. We here in Lau
rens know that we have uncommonly
strong banks and on our local market
the stocks sell high, but what would
their stocks bring in Richmond? Per
haps twenty dollars a share less than
they would bring here. The smaller
the concern, the larger proportionately
should be the amount of profit put to
the surplus fund for protection against
Wo do not pretend to know what the
charges should be for storing cotton but
there ought always to be competition.
The warehouses, whether they be own
ed by bankers or farmers, should not
attempt to do business for less than
cost and a fair profit, and the test of
cost and profit is the average of a period
of years, five or ten, not one year's
success. If the farmers of Greenwood
build a warehouse and handle cotton at
so low a figure that they can earn no
profits, they will become disgusted
and sell it and the stock will pass into
the hands of other people. The differ
ence between 10 cents a month and 15
cents for storing and insuring cotton is
tremendous-?fifty per cent.
"LICKER" IN CHARLESTON.
Governor Ansel and Attorney General
Lyon have been fighf ing the blind tigers'
in Charleston mighty hard lately. Their
men have been getting evidence upon
which five or six leading whiskey sellers
of the unlawful kind have been enjoined
from selling liquor. If they disobey,
they will be imprisoned for contempt.
The Governor and the Attorney General
do thiB because of the difficulty of find
ing juries that will convict tigers in
Charleston. Of course the injunction
method will be effective?so long as it
lasts. We doubt if it will last though.
It may be that we shall have a Govern
or some day who will not cars, whether
whiskey is sold by blind tigers in Char
leston or not. We have had them of
that kind during the days of the state
dispensary; though we supposo some of
our friends will find that hard to be
The plain truth is that no whiskey
law is going to be enforced in a com
munity that the people of the commun
ity don't wish enforced. If the people
of Laarens county generally believed
that there is no more wrong in selling
whiskey than in Belling Hour, the sup-1
pressing of blind tigers would be very
difficult. A large proportion of the peo
ple of Charleston look on the whiskey
selling business just as our grandfathers
here in Laurens did. Sixty years ago,
the best merchants in this county
thought nothing of selling a jug of
whiskey from their village and cross
roads stores. Consider the trouble that
tmcle Sam has in putting down moon
shiners in the mountains.
The injunction is a civil process. It
will not do in the long run to use it as a
device to convict people of crime, there
by abolishing, to that extent, trial by
Meanwhile the whiskey situation in
Charleston is improving. Gradually the
people are coming to the conclusion that
their county dispensary system gives
them a measure of local self govern
ment and that it will prove profitable.
A sentiment in favor of obeying the law
is slowly but surely growing up. In
time this sentiment may become so
strong that blind tigers will not be tol
erated. But they will not be perman
ently suppressed by injunctions issued
at the instance of outsiders.
Of course the Governor and the At
torney General are perfectly sincero in
their intentions. Possibly their activ
ities may help in the work that the law
abiding people are doing, but the dan
ger is that they may arouse resentment
by their interference. The blind tigers
In Charleston have no friends in Char
leston except themselves. So long as
the State dispensary with its graft con
tinued, nobody in Charleston was dis
posed to bother with tho tigers but now
that an honest system is being conducted,
the feeling is strengthening every day
that the law ought to bo obeyed.
By tho way, although nobody has
t to jail for getting loot out of
garies in various places are making two
or three times as much money compar
atively as the state sub-dispensaries
made. How is it that in Charleston the
dispensaries, with plenty of tigers still
going, are earning three times as much
money as the state dispensary earned?
Why is a similar condition of affairs
shown in Columbia?
What became of the millions that the
state dispensary ought to have made?
If the concern had been managed effici
ciently and honestly during the thirteen
years and a half of its life, it would
have turned into the state dispensary
enough money to have paid off the state
debt, or thereabouts.
The opinion of Attorney General Bon
aparte against the legality of state as
sisted immigration changes the charac
ter of that question, so far as South
Carolina is concerned. The experiment
of cotton mills or others paying money
into the hands of our state immigration
bureau with which to pay tho steam
ship passage of Europeans cannot be
repeated. If a steamship line between
Charleston and Trieste shall be estab
lished, it will be done without the sub
stantial assistance of tho state of South
Carolina and the state will be helpless
to prevent its establishment. Business
men, including cotton mill, iron, mining
and other companies, can promote the
establishment of as many European
steamship lines to Charleston or other
ports as they wish and the state can
have nothing to do with it. The only
office of the state immigration bureau
in future would be to assist the United
States immigration officials in excluding
the admission into the country of unde
Meantime Col. Watson's bureau is
accomplishing good results in advertis
ing the resources of the state and in
ducing the settlement of thinly inhabit
ed parts of the state by native Ameri
cans. We were informod by a gentle
man of Beaufort a few days ago that a
number of northern men had been led
to come to Beaufort during the past
year and to buy lands through Col.
The people of Laurens should remem
ber that the whole state is not so densely
populated as their county is. Beaufort
pounty, for example, has only 6,000 or
7,000 white people. In late years
wealthy northern men and companies
have purchased great hunting preserves
in the county, of many thousands of
acres, so that northern men own now a
big slice of the whole county. Col.
Watson does not bring them to the
state as investors. The people brought
here by his bureau make homes in the
state. We need new settlers in the
lower part of South Carolina so that
millions of acres shall not fall into the
hands of a few rich men who will create
a kind of land trust. It would be al
most impossible for any man or set of
men at any price to acquire 30,000 acres
in a single tract in Laurens county and
it would be a misfortune for the county
if it could be done. But that is possible
in Beaufort. Georgetown, Horry, Hamp
ton and Colleton and it has actually
been done. White settlers are sadly
needed in those counties, where the ne
groes are in a majority of six or seven

A Certain Cure for Croup??Used for Ten
Years Without a failure.
Mr. W. C. Bott, a Star City, Ind.,
hardware merchant, is enthusiastic in
his praise of Chamberlain's Cough
Remedy. His children have all been
subject to croup and he has used this
remedy for the past ten years, and
though they much feared the croup,
his wife and he always felt safe upon
retiring when a bottle of Chamberlain's
Cough Remedy was in the house. His
oldest child was subject to severe at
tacks of croup, but this remedy never
failed to effect a speedy cure. He has
recommended it to friends nnd neigh
bors and all who have used it say that
it is unequaled for croup and whooping
cough. For sale by Laurens Drug Co.

STOP SELLINQ COTTON.
Mr. E. D. Smith Begs the Farmers to
Stand Pat for High Prices.
[We publish below Mr. E. D. Smith's
important interview, which was crowded
out of last week's issue.]
"Hold your cotton."
That has ever been the advice of Mr.
E. D. Smith. Now he adds: "Keep on
When he saw yesterday morning how
the reports to the department of agri
culture had verified the claims of the
Cotton Association that the crop was
short and that tho price was ridicu
lously low, he was wrought up to the
boiling over pitch when he saw that
the gamblers on Wall street were
pushing the price down and giving the
lie to their own excuse of the past?
"We must yield to the law of supply
"It is robbery. It is an effort to take
the money out of the pockets of the
people of the South just as a pick
pocket would do," said Mr. Smith.
They know that this is 'debt paying
time in the South' and they think they
have us at their mercy, but we will
give them a fight which will show
them the spirit of the South is yet too
proud to yield to them.
"Supply?it is short! Demand ?Why,
I am informed that the mills are sell
ing their product at a price which
would bo profitable if cotton were be
ing purchased at 18 cents per pound.
" 'Hold your cotton." That is all
that I can say to the farmers of South
Carolina. And all who will hold arc
urged to let me know that they will
hold and how much they will hold. It
will require just a few lines on a postal
card addressed to our office, room 510,
Skyscraper, Columbia, S. C.
"The government report, both as to
condition and number of bales ginned,
was even more bullish than the friends
of higher prices really anticipated, 67
on condition and practically a half mil
lion bales less ginned to date than last
year confirming the statement that the
crop was steadily deteriorating in con
dition and that there was not and
would not be as much to gin this year
as last by possibly 2,000,000 bales. This
amount is about correct as the per
cent, of decrease in condition shows,
and the ginncrs' report certainly con
firms this estimate.
Yet the 'professionals' take it as a
joke and proceed in the face of these
conditions?that should warrant from
3 to 4 cents more per pound than it
is bringing- to deduct a dollar a bale
from the cotton now going on the mar
ket. Every argument, all statistics,
the law of supply and demand, nil in
favor now of higher priced cotton, the
South through her cotton organizations
demanding a higher price, yet these
j gentlemen see fit to taunt them with
this added insult to-day of a 20 point
drop in the market.
Is it possible that the business men
and farmers of the South are going to
have it proven to a certainty that the
cotton gamblers can determine what
the revenue of the South shall be and
what shall be the personal wages of
every individual in the South? Or will
they take this occasion to prove that
they are masters of the situation?
"The situation would be ludicrous
if it did not involve so many interests
vital to the South. As said in my ar
ticle of last week, the only possible
answer is?to slop selling cotton.
"The bankers and merchants of the
South as well as the creditors of the
South should co-operate now in help
ing the South to win this fight. This
is the first time when conditions are
such that we will be in the position to
prove our friends and remember them.
"Once more let me urge every man
who has cotton to report to me on a
postal card the number of bales he is
making and how many he will hold
from the market. Reports are coming
in now. I want them as full as possi
ble so that I may tabulate them and
give them to the public for the benefit
of all parties interested." The State,
"Pneumonia's Beadly Work
had so seriously alTected my right
lung," writes Mrs. Fannie Connor, of
Rural Route 1. Georgetown, Tenn.,
"that I coughed continuously night and
day and the neighbors' prediction
consumption?seemed inevitable, until
my husband brought home a bottle of
Dr. King's New Discovery, which in
my case proved to be the only REAL
cough cure and restorer of weaK, sore
lungs." When all other remedies
utterly fail, you may still win in the
battle against lung and throat troubles
with New Discovery, the REAL cure.
