The committee from the Sumter Chamber of Commerce returned from Orangeburg Thursday night enthusi? astic over the possibilities of a coun? ty fair for Sumte- county, it is their belief that what Orangeburg has done and is doing along this line can be duplicated In Sumter and should be surpassed owing to Surntur's excellent railroad facilities. The committee visited the Orangeburg fair grounds, talked with the officers of the Fair Association and with a large number of business men. All alike agree that the fair has been a good thing for Orangeburg, business men and farm? ers a.ike. The Orangeburg Fair was started at the suggestion of the Farmers' Union of that county and was organised through the co-operation of that body and the Chamber of Commerce. Nearly one-half of the subscribers to the steck of the association are farm? ers. Of the directors, five are from the city and the others are selected from the farmers, one being selected from each township. The association was incorporated for $20,000 dlvidod into $10 shares. By dividing into small shares the stock was distributed widely and a large Interest was thus secured. $ll,0uo was subscribed be? fore the fair started and $7,000 was paid In. Thirty-five seres of land was purchased on the outskirts of the city st $5.500 which was sold to them by a public spirited citizen be? low ctst in order to prevent a hold? up of the association and that the fair might be started. Not a dollar of this amount was paid until after Che fair closed. The entire cost of improvements, including fencing, race track and seven buildings was ?12.000. Thc.e buildings Include a poultry building. 60x75. main exhibi? tion 75x150, iwo cattle barns 70x100. hog barn 30x100 and small office building. The fair itself returned a total sum of $1.000 which included all admis? sions and space sales. No complimen? tary tickets were given out. The to tsl expense < f the fair for premiums, prises snd Isbor was a little less than $4,000 or s net return to the associa? tion of $4.000. The fair was a great juccess. On one day over 5,000 peo? ple paid for admission. The streets of the city wore crowded with peo? ple. The merchants did an excellent business and the hotels and boarding bouse did a rush business. The far? mers and business men were drawn closer together. Every conceivable premium was offered for farm dis? plays of vegetables, product* gve stock. The schools made an ex? cellent exhibit. The women of the slty and county especially became in? terested snd the exhibits of needle work were nota'u*. Many of tne churches, ran dining rooms.

Gary and Perkins suggested the plank in the Progressive Republican pi U- I form proposing a Federal commission to regulate the trusts. "I understand that the leader of the third party," said the Governor, '"has recently said that he did not suggest this change just the other day, that he suggested it while he was President, in one of his messages to Congress, during the same term of the Presidency in which trusts grew faster and more numerously than In any other administration we have had and that his conclusion was?he doesn t say this, but this might be the inference-?that his conclusion was that th" trusts had come to stay, that it was not possible to put them out of business, it wasn't possible to check their supremacy, that all you cou'd do Vsj to accept them as necessary evils and appoint an industrial com? mission which wou:? tell them how they were to do their business, not an industrial commission which should tell you how other men should be ad? mitted into the field of competition but an industrial commission which should take care of the people of the United States hy saying to these trusts: 'Now, go easy; don t hurt any? body. We believe that when you are reminded of your moral duties you are not malevolent, your are beneficial. You are big, but you arc not cruel.'

Vt many places the nominee stepped down from the train and stood in the rain to shake hands with those who pessed forward to meet him. At Kalamazoo, Mich., a crowd of collegians gave the Governor a cheer. "1 have found that the subjects to be Iteeueaed in this campaign as so tre? mendous trat they can hardly be handled In SpSSChSS from the rear end of the train." said the Governor. "MorooVSf, the rear platform is not the Democratic platform this time, We are at the front and not at the hack.

Tliem.M Columbia, Sept. JO.? Declaring that he is voicing the sentiments of 72,000 white voters in South Carolina, Governor Cole L. Blease In a lengthy statement issued at Columbia today and addressed to the people of South Carolina, demands of the State Dem? ocratic executive committee that it l ease its dilatory methods, take im? mediate action and declare him the nominee for Governor. The statement is in view of the investigation order? ed by the executive committee, upon the charges tiled by Judge Ira B.

Nolan, appointed secretary to the le? gation at Panama, who was recently arrested at Sew York with Marion MacVicker, a young Bcotck girl, and later dis< harged by a court, today formally deajlned his appointment in the diplomatic service. His action re? lieves the State department, officials say, of some embarrassment. Nolan, with his father, who came her.- from Chicago, conferred with Acting Secretary Wilson today and it was said there was B probability that President Taft might be asked to de eide thi*- question. Later, however, the probten, was solved by Nolan de? clining the appointment and the fol? lowing statement was issued: "Mr. Nolan called at the depart? ment ot State today and explained that, although his conduct had been, grossly misrepresented and distorted, as shown" by the upshot of the pro? ceedings in New York, nevertheless, owing to the disagreeable notoriety which had been given the matter, he felt, Tor motives of delicacy, that he would perfer not to ask for any ap? pointment at this time." Tfte little boye and girls of the city can? sest content now. Yes, a circus is cooiing, two of them n fact, and the time is not so very far off either. The information will be welcome to some of tins young and old folks also, those who always go to and enjoy circuses. Choice Farm Lands.
