MR. RAGSDALE FOR JUDGE.
The coming General Assembly will
select a judge for the Sixth Circuit.
The first and controlling considera
tion, of course, should be fitness for
this most important position. There
never was a time when a strong ju
diciary was more necessary than the
present. The incessant bickerings be
tween capital and labor, with result
ing strikes and lockouts; the deep
mouthed mutterings of the masses
against social injustices; the crime
wave that is sweeping over the coun
try, induce in the thoughtful mind a
doubt of the persistence of our sys
tem of law, and a strong, honest ju
diciary is the best hope for a return
of large numbers of our people to
sanity and reverence. More depends
on the selection of judges from time
to time than the average person real
Fairfield county has the type of
man the state needs. Learned in the
law, theoretically and practically, of
broad and varied culture, conservative
but not reactionary, progressive but
not radical, Hon. G. W. Ragsdale
would adorn the Bench that once knew
Harper, Hudson, Johnson and the
others of that great coterie who made
the South Carolina decisions authori
ty wherever English common law was
known. Fitness should determine the
man, and Mr. Ragsdale is fit.
Fairfield has not had a judge since
the Civil War. Judge Buchanan was
not elected from this circuit. Mr.
Ragsdale has been unanimously en
dor~ed by the Winnsboro bar, which
in itself is a tribute to his worthiness
and fitness for this high position. The
county as a whole will ratify this en
dorsement, we are sure. Fairfield has
the man; and the place, in the circum
stances, should go to her.

The failure to raise $25,000 to in
sure the betterment and continuance
of the State Fair in Columbia is a
very sad commentary on the brains
andl progressiveness of the business
people of Columbia. It makes us
rather sympathetic with the sugges
tion of a prorminent business man
that there ought to be a few funerals
in the community. It indicates that
not a few of the business men of Co
lumbia, though surprisingly sensitive
in the pocket-nerve, are dead from
the neck up. It denotes that, instead
of endeavoring to erect fair buildings
and such like symbols of alertness,
we ought to get together and build
a handsome morgue on the principal
thoroughfare and make that the vis
ible sign and symbol of our civic
We have been told that there are
merchants in Columbia who decline
to contribute their quota because
they do not get what they deem to
be adequate returns from the fair in
the way of trade. There is no place,
or there should be no place, in Colum
bia, for merchants whose only inter
est in the community is bounded by
the blood they can suck out of it. If
they have not the pride in the city
that impels them to go down in their
pockets and do something, sacrifice
something, in a disinterested commun
ity spirit they are not worthy to be
citizens; they are parasites on the
civic body, and the sooner they are
known and exposed the better off we
shall be for the future.
These are the sort of men who can
hold up a dime close to the pupils of
their eyes and shut out the whole
world. They are pikers in the worst
sense of the word. We have been
told, also, that there has been some
suppression of the unpleasant news
of Columbia's failure to come across.
in this matter because of the unsavory
publicity it would give the city. ThatI
is the policy of the faint hearts.
What we require is a show-down.
The sum of $25,000, asked of Colum
bia to retain so valuable an asset as
the State Fair, for which Columbia
has never paid anything, and out of*
which Columbia's merchants, hotel
proprietors, boarding house keepers,
utilities and other business enterpris

be made or has been made for many

The manager of the local ball club
has arranged games with the Elks'
team of Columbia for Thursday andl
Friday of this week. Chester was
to have played here for three (lays
but for some reason they could not
come. The Elks have a good ball
club and they are coming up prepared
to give the locals a battle. The Elks
team won the championship of the
City League in Columbia this year.
Whitmire will be here for the first
three days of next week. They have
one of the strongest teams in the
state, having won 27 games out of
33 played so far this season.
The same old "gang" will be out
there playing for Winnsboro, so that
is "nuff sed." All we have to say
is, Whitmire will have to "strut, their
stuff" to beat the locals. Everybody
who possibly can, be sure and come
out to see these games as the expense
of getting these teams here is very
heavy. All games will be played at
5:15 on the College campus..

The play, "Patty Makes Things

GERMAN COLLAPSE AND
Wellesley Hills, Mass., August 12,
1922.-The German question was dis
cussedl today by Roger W. Babson,
statistician, who has been entangling
the international and financial situ
"Germany has failed to meet her
obligation on the indemnity pay
ments," said Mr. Babson, "and like
any other concern is judged bank
rupt. We face the same situation
that we find when a business can not
pay its debts. We either have a re
organization and try to get it back
on to its feet or we call in the ref
eree and judge it bankrupt and sell its
assets and put it out of business.
"The world is now having a cred
itors' meeting to decide what is to
be done with Germany. Upto the
present time France, the largest
creditor, has been taking the pound
of flesh. It is only within the past
few days that she has offered any
other ,proposition. Now, however,
France sees that if she will let Ger
many off that England will let France
off. It is understood that a French
ambassador is dealing with the Uni
ted States Government at this time,
in the hope that the republic may be
released from some of the debts she
owes to us. These later developments
are favorable indeed and strongly
suggest that a friendly re-organiza
tion of German finance is possible.
"If France on the other hand were
to march an army to Berlin, and to
collect the pound of flesh by force,
it is quite possible that this might
align Russia, Italy and even possibly
England with Germany and bring a
bout another war. This, of course,
would be an undesirable situation
from every point of view. Such ac
tion would undoubtedly cause a pan
ic in our stock market, and would
seriously embarrass our big banks.
It would upset business generally.
We would not even experience the
business boom that we had at the be
ginning of the last European war.
The new gases and chemical weap
ons of warfare developed since 1918
can be made just as well in Europe
as over here.
"If, however, Germar y has a friend
ly re-organization of her finance it
would mean much and boom Ameri
~an business. Such. a re-organization
.vould clear the air and overcome the
rear of repudiation which keeps all

world the confidence it needs at this
particular time. It would strengthen
business everywhere. The greatest
part of the benefit would be felt in
America. I certainly hope that this
will be the outcome.
"In the meantime", concluded,
Mr. Babson, "we must remember one
thing more, there is a distinct differ
ence between Germany's governmental -
finances and the finances of Ger
man firms and corporations. The
credit of Germany's government is
almost nil because of the tons of paper
marks which it is obligated to re
deem. The banks are also in a rather
uncertain position because their cash
assets are of very uncertain value.
The private firms of Germany, how
ever, hold real property, factories,
machinery land equipment and mer
chandise. Most of them are in a
sound condition because these things3
Iare of actual and permanent value. ~
The re-organization of Germany's
finance would upset the German gov
ernment's financial bureau and might
call for considerable readjustment in
Germany's banking circles. It need
have little affect on the real credit4
of private firms."
General business is maintaining its
recent improvement in spite of un
favorable sentiment created by coal
and rail strikes. The index of the
Babsonchart shows that business is
but 9 percent below normal. No.
change since last week.
