PUBLISHED WEEKLY WINNSBORO, S. C. WEDNESDAY, MAY 2, 1906. ESTABLISHED 1844
Senator Johnson Again.
[/se Vews and flerald:
Having utterly failed in your
-effort last. veek to extricate
yourself from the hole into which
you had fallen of your own weight
notwithstanding all the quibbling
-wiggling, and hair-splitting tactics
employed. Now by the miunifi
cence of the Columbia Record
who seems to have caught you by
-the straps of the boots and given
you a hearty lift with a probable
hope that the rebound would
land you sufficiently near the top
-of the hole that. you could then
-crawl out by your own efforts,
but somehow or other, in the
rapid ascension, you seem to
-have missed connection and only
succeeded in reaching the bottom
again, in great shape but some
-what bunged up. The writer,
with others, realize that you are
sorely in need of aid from some
zource, if you are to be relieved
of the odium of your predica
ment. The argument by which
you are trying to escape and
divert attention from your per
- sonal interest and selfish greed in
-the matter, to the fact that the
:amount was srgll and insignifi
.cant will not nold. .Even if it is
,small, is that any reason whv
'it should be thrown away? It
is the many small amounts that
,make the large ones. If it is so
:insignificant and small, why are
you making such a tremendous
.effort to get it back again? Or
-why did you ever ieceive it at all
for that matter? You must have
,known you were publishing these
7reports under a law that was
-clearly unconstitutional. Yes, it
is only one of the small savings,
but you are making- a great deal
of noise notwithstanding the
smallness thereof. You are even
going into the courts with the
hope of still retaining the small
and insignificant little sum.
The argument that the saving
would only amount to a fraction
when divid.ed among the total
inhabitants of the county is as
old and thread-worn ,as is The
News and Herald itself. . That is
a favored argument to mislead
-and deceive, but the people of
Fairfield county will not havre to
Ibe told that there are many
1undreds of these little sixty
Zollars machines in the state, of
warious . kinds, that are daily
sapping the life blood of her
people, and draining the publie
treasury.- One thousand times
sixty is a very large amount,
yet the deceptive argument is
-usually made in every instance
s.that it will cost the people but a
ifraction-or trifle each, but gentle
2men, when you take the grand
ttcital and divide the* number of
tax-payers into that, yoin Will
tden feel the crushing weight of
usaey dollars each instead of
kaetions. The cost of the govern
meet is.gradually increasing each
year and avithout spiything to
show for it, and these 3seless
and unneeessa~ry drains are ?he
sole cause. The cost of the statLe
government he,s increased withim
the last few years, from about
eight hundred and fity thousand
dollars. to about one million
three hundred thousand9 and. it
appears that the expenses of the
rcounties have increased in very
uwar the same proportion. But
-when you attempt to lop off some
>f these useless drains there is a
:great hue and cry on the part of
~those who are enjoying saeia easy
public pap. This is not the first~
time, by any means, that I have
imeeirrGA the enmity of these pap
enekers, ina my efforts to give the
people as honest,. efficient, and
.aeenomical goernment, which is
madoubtedly the duty of every true
publie servant and .represatative
of the people. .This I shalt om
&iue -to do regardless of whiat
tMose intereated may think.
.Se far as the amendmeut that
[ odffered is concerned, E have no
fear as to its constitutions&Lity,
i!ecause it relates to the same
subject as the original law -viz,
the publieation of official reports:
but I will be candid and say
frankly that I believe the original
law, which I was not the authoi
of, however, will fall under judicial
interpretation, because the con
stitultionl provides that there
.whall be no -local legislatiot
*-here general law is applicable
:aad when exceptions are made il
localizes the law and controvenes
~the constitution. Special prcri.
:.ions, however, may be incorpcr
.itad in a general law, but ther<
man be no wholesale exceptions
The original law, therefore, ma'
be doelared unconstitutional
which of course would carry wit]
it the amendment as offered b'
~I was fully aware at the tim
that the original law was ex
tremely doubtful as well as th
"Wise Law" under which yo
have been operating. And as
you have carried the latter into
the courts to restore this drain
from the county treasurer, I shall
if uecessary, see that the other
also is passed upon by the court,
and if the one falls, most as
suredly the other will. Then the
end originally sought will be
fully accomplished. If t h i s
should put you out of business,
as one would naturally infer
from the continuous vaporings
and ravings that have been
going on for several weeks, be
cause of the stoppage of this
leak, we will then welcome your
return to the lowlands of Green
wood county with a certificate of
deportment during your tempo
rary sojourn here, to the effect
that you have, at least been faith
ful to your own interest, and
especially to "public pap". In
trying to change the issue from
personal interest that has been
securely fa;;tened upon you to
the meth-d in which the legisla
tion was accomplished, is simply
pitiable and doubly emphasizes
ignorance. I paid no attention
to this in my last communication
because I did not want to insult
the intelligence of the people of
Fairfield county, for everybody
outside of the lunatic asylum,
knows the method was proper,
legitimate, and strictly in accord
ance with parliamentary law,
and is of course practised by
every member of every legisla
ture in the United States. But
why should you bring Senator
Tillman into the matter; for the
purpose of gaining a little cheap
noteriety, I presume. But, Alas-:
Alas: The cruelty of fate, how often
are, the hopes of some cruelly
blighted, and their laudable am
bition ruthlessly swept away. If
you were to live to be as old as
Methuselah, and should cliib to
the top round of the News and
Herald ladder daily, and raiss
your highest notes, it is still en
tremely doubtful if Senator Till
man would ever know that such
a personage as yourself had ever
lived. But you say that he is
constitutional and I am uncon
stitutional, I will again be chari
table enough to allow this to be
iransferred to the accovnt of ig
norance or misrepresentation,
which Ewer vou may choose. Of
all the laws khet it have added
to the statutes of Sogth Carolina,
only one has been declared un
,coPtitu1tionhl , and .that was ,the
,cointy govexrnment law that Vas
framed1 by Judge I;ydrick and
myeef, who were members a.t
that time of the hone of repre
sentatives, but introdgced by nme.
It was declared uncontittionel
because certain countijes were
exempted from its provisions,
the same reason that mullifies
youir "wise law." All the others
that haye been questioned haveI
sucessglly stood the constitu
tional tests of a ,courts. One
of the corporation ig that I
secured the passage ok
recently passed all the' state
egurts,~and is now pending on
apea~l to the supreme court of
the L uite4 States. Your sneer
at Bly thwood ga J presume, be
eensed by the goo4 pegple of
that section upon the gyr4
that you di4 nct know any bettei.

WINNSBORO COrIMERCIAL CLUB
Elects Mr. 1icCants Secretary. A
Bazaar to be Held.
The board of directors of the
Winnsboro Commercial Club
held a meeting Tuesday evening
and transacted a number of im
portant items in connection with
starting the club off. Some of
the furniture has been ordered
and a committee has been ap
pointed to look into the purchase
of the other furniture and fix.
Mr. C. W. McCants was unan
nimously chosen by the board
as secretary and treasurer of the
Club. This was but a fitting
recognition of the valuable as
sistance that he has rendered in
getting the Club organized. He
has attended to all the little
details taat are so necessary in
getting such an organization
started and it is doubtful but
that for his faithfulness in this
matter whether the Club would
now be organized. His efficient
work in its organization bespeaks
faithful service for the future.
A committee consisting of E. C.
Gwaltney, K. R. McMaster and
J. Frank Fooshe was appointed
to arrange for a bazaar to be
held the latter part of May.
This committee will select a com
mittee of ladies to co-operate
with them in this matter.
This committee will make a
canvass of the business houses of
the community for some contribu
tion for the bazaar and they hope
through these various contribu
tions to realize a nice sum which
will be used by the Club in get
ting their quarters fixed Up in a
proper manner. If every bisi
ess bouse will respond in a
taugible manner tQ the appe4l
that will be naade, it will be no
rouble to make this bazaar a

Enter taining the Veterans.
In accordance with the suggeE
tion recently made in thes
colums, the citizens of WinnE
boro have opened wide thei
homes for the entertainment c
the veterans the night befor
Memorial Day, when they wil
all be expected to be here. T4
this end circular letters hav
been sent out to all the veteran
in the county with the requesi
that they advise the committef
as to whether they would com(
in on the afternoon of the 9tl
or the morning of the 10th. The
committee has tried very harc
to get one of these special in
vitations to every v e t e r an
whose address could be had;
and, if any veteran should see
this, who failed to get such at
invitation, entertainment will be
provided him also if he will at
once advise W. C. Boyd, chair.
man of the entertainment com
mittee, that he will come in on
the afternoon of the 9th. The
reterans, of course, must appre
ciate the fact that ente:etainment
in the homes the night before
ean be made only far those, who
inform the eommittee of their
eoming and they will thus confer
a great favor on the committee
by advising them a; to the time
when they ezpeet to come in.
