SOME PLAIN FACTS.
The truth hurts. Facts and
figures are - what we have to
follow. Our subscribers all re
alize this as w'ell as we, but it
is up to us to heed it, and it is
up to us strong, too, for the
government is in behind the
edict. The proposition is sim
ply this: Newspapers to enjoy
the privileges of the mails that
have been accoded them must
have their subscription list paid
in advance-this is the truth,
and it hurts. The facts are:
This is a ruling of the postoffice
depattient and was proml
gated in Deceiber, 1907, and
was made effective the first
of Jaiuarv, 1908, with finial
limit for papers to Comply by
the first of April, 1908. The

The - legislahurd :n,& 0 week

elect a senator to fill out the un

sLatimer. Report has reached
here that the anpohitep will

not to entei .;he race riext sum

e-uivalent to saying- that the
le ri slature, as a body, is not ca
pable of choosing a competent
Report has it that J. P. Carey,
of Pickens. is slated for the
place, and will be elected.
There is not a firmer, more
competent, or leveler-headed
im: i in the state, and one who
would give his time and atten
tention and do his whole duty
more faithfully than "Jim Ca
rey,"' but we stie'muously ob
joct, and our wail goes up,
whether* it is heeled, or not,
th-at lie should not accept this
gift (Q) with any strings attach
ed to it. It is, or was, the in
tention, not only of his friends
in this county, but of his ad
mirers all over the state, to
offer him for the senate this
smnner, for the lonig term, and
now comes the legislature with
this plim and danrles it before
his e Ies with a string to it, and
he must accept strhig and all if
he accepts the offering of his

if his colleagues want him to
have it, but do not manacle
him hand and foot with it.

friends think best when the

against the filAd for the long
termi of U. S. senator, and un
less he- be al'owed to erte.
the race for the position we pro
test against his accepting the
gift of the gods.
Th. political situation in this
sta, is still further complicated I
by t' heainnouncemient that C. C.
roitherstone, of Laureis, will
be a ( a 'didate for governor in
the primaries this summer.
Ill-. Featherst one was a can di
dale for governor In 1898 on the
prohibition-platform and was
dlefeated by a combination of
pec uli ar circumstances and by
a very narrow majority. He
has; served as Grand Chancellor
<(f the Knights of Pythias and
is anm~ active and prominent
imember of the M. E. church.
T1he (death of Senator Latimer
c:ompletely changes the polit
ical situation in South Carolina
with reference to the contest
for senator. Mr. Latimer's
termi expires March 3, 1909, and
hewas a candidate to succeed
himself. The legislature has,
adjourned, but it will meet in
extra session two weeks henc'e
to elect a successor to 'the de
ceased senator. With the de ath
of Senator Latimner comes the
announcement that ex-Gov. D.
C. Heyward will be a candidate
for the U.-S. senate in the Denm
ocratic priinary next- summe.
ISateSenator Cole L. Blease,
of Newberry county, says the
Clinton Chronicle, has suddenly
become verywmoth over some of
the testimoniggiiven the dispen
sary invesdading committee
and threatenwt~ia governor wit h
. personal enestuiter. We ad
'mit Mr. Blease' its a big talker,
but at the same ,timne have no
fears flor tlhe governor.
