The Morgan bill with the
Sanders amendment has passed
the house of representatives by a
vote of 63 to 47 and will be the
issue before the senatA this week.
The passage of this bill means
the downfall of the state dis
pensary. It provides for local
option for each county as to the
dispensary or prohibition and
gives Charleston the opportunty
to decide whether it will have
high license or not. Its passage
is a distinct triumph for the cause
of prohibition and local self-rule.
Elsewhere is published a call
for a meeting of the ladies of the
town for the purpose of organiz
ing a civic league. This is a most
commendable undertaking, one in
full line with progress and one
that is deserving of the very great-,
est success. The ladies are to b3
commended for their interest in
the matter and it is to be sin
cerely hoped that in this most
laudable move all the ladies in the
community will enter with heart
and soul. A cleaner town is
greatly needed and that is what
we will surely have if the ladies
are behind the movement.
Compulsory education has again
lost in the legislature, but there
is still growing a more favorable
sentiment for tne cause of edu
eating the masses that will make
it only a question of time tlll it
will finally come through all r-ght.
South Carolina cannot afford to
hold such a low place in the mat
ter of literacy and the demands
for a more intelligent citizenship
are multiplying on every hand.
The prejudices that exist to this
measure because of its apparent
curtailing of the rights of parents
and of the supposed advantages
it will give the negro race as com
pared with the white must go
down in the light of more hgnit.
Nothing will do more to break
down these barriers than making
the very best advantages of the
present educational facilities. Let
no effort be spared for the up
building of the schools and the
furthering of the cause of educa
tion. This is the great hope of
our State for better things indus
trially and otherwise.
In another column is published
an appeal from a committee of
the Libraiy Association to the
citizens of Winnsboro to give
financial backing in a special
movement at this time to greatly
increase the efficiency of the
library. The appeal is strongly
put and ought to be met with a
hearty response. The contribu
tion of the amount asked for at
this time would insure the library
being put on such a firm basis
that it would be a permanent in
stitution in the future. The in
crease in books that would be
made possible would mean an
increase in members, all of which
would go to making the continu
ance of the libras easier than it
is at present with its limited
facilities. Let every one become
a member and let every one give
just as much in addition as is
possible. The amount can be
given in monthly or quarterly
installments and in this way it
will be easy for all to lend a help
ing hand to the movement. The
offer of $100 by a citizen of the
community on the conditions
named in the appeal will not be
continued after March 1, and so
it is necessary for there to be
prompt action. With all pulling
together now the library can be
made a permanent institution,
which will be the pride of the
town. By all means let it be had.

The Winnsboro Public Library.
Five years ago, the Winnsboro
?ublic Library Association was
ormed. In that time the library
ias grown from about one dozen
olumes, which were bought on
,redit, and let out at three cents
i day each until they were paid
or, to the present library which
::ontains more than five hundred
volumes. These books were paid
For by means of membership
ees, and some were contributed
by geLerous friends of the Asso
ciation. In addition to the books
a number of the best magazines
have been taken and read by the
The membership has grown,
from about fifteen at the begin
ning, to about one hundred.. The
records show that during the
year 1905 the number of volumes
read has averaged more than 200
per month. The above facts
show that the library meets a
need that exists in our commu
nity, and demonstrates too that
our people are interested in and
appreciate the public library.
It ancourages the Association
also to reach out for better equip
ment, so that this "people's uni
versity", as it has been appro
priately called, may b6 of larger
benefit to the community. The
Association, however, has now
come to a crisis in its history,
and that crisis is the reason for
this statement to the people of
For the most part, during these
years, the library has been
housed and cared for by The
News and Herald through the
kindness of its editor. The
change of location of The News
and Herald into new quarters has
necessitated the closing of the
library temporarily. It must get
new quarters and look forward to
increase and enlargement, and
this necessarily means increased
expense. To supply a nice home
for the library, the 'salary of a
librerian, and to provide new
books, calls for more money.
The membership fees, which
are one doll'ir a year per mem
ber, will not meet the increased
expense. Help must come from
some other source. For this pur
pose, the Association appeals to
all our people for this public and
At a meeting of the Associa
tion, held on the evening of Jan
uary 31st, one of our ptblic
spirited citizens headed a sub
scription list with $100, to be
paid as the Association demands,
on condition that the community
raise four hundred dollars in
cash or bona fide subscriptions,
to be paid monthly or quarterly
during 1906; that this sum of
$500 be expended wholly for
books and equipments; provided,
further, that the town council
contribute $100 for providing
suitable rooms, and that there be
one hundred members at one dol
lar each, and that the member
ship fees be expended for the
employment of a librarian, and
paying other incidental expenses,
the membership fees not to be
included in the $4C0 asked for
from the c )mmunity. The Asso
ciation accepted this proposition
and appointed a committee to
wait on the people and ask for
this contribution of $400 from
The above is a recital of the
facts in the case, and this is our
appeal to the community. If our
effort meets with success the
Association will be able to be of
larger benefit to our town, and
can do its beneficent work on
broader and better lines. It is a
public cause that appe'als to us
and to our children. We ask and
expect a hearty response from atll
the people to our appeaI.

An Additional Provision.
In last week's issue of The
News and Herald was printed a C<
:opy of the bill providing for thejw
issuance of bonds for payment of,
Fairfield's indebtedness. While I
the copy sent us did not contain' L
it, the bill have already been re- C
vised so as to make more definite i
the manner of conducting said c
election. The additional provis
ion is as follows:
"And provided further, That
eaid election shall be held on said'
date in the manner and under the e
rules governing general elections
in this State, at which election
the question of bond issue shall
be submitted to said electors as I
follows: There shall be two sets
of tickets on one' of which shall be
printed, "For Bond Issue," and
on the other, "Against Bond Is
sue," and if the majority of the
ballots be for bond issue, then
said bonds shall be issued as pro
vided in this Act, and if a majo:
ity of the ballots cast be against
bond issue, then said bonds shall
not be issued."

of last week, how welcome is the

are something terrible, in places

The farmers are busy hauling
fertilizers from Blairs,-and how
the mules have to tug and strain
to get through the mud, almost
up to the hub.
I hear constant complaint of
the scarcity of labor. Very few
farmers have as many hands as
they need, and some have none at
I hear the quarry at Strother
has been abandoned, and it is to
be hoped some of the hands who
were employed there will now re
turn to the farms. It seems to
be the fashion with the young ne
groes to seek employment on the
railroads and other public works,
: and the older ones prefer renting
to hiring to the land-owner.

scription to erect a monument to
the memory of that noble woman,
Mrs. C. ~Ladd? I hoped that
Miss Florence Wilkes would meet
a ready response in her efforts,
