PICKENS, S. C.:
THURSDAY SEPTEMBER 30. 1909.
Pickens County Fair.
The fair passed off nicely and
pleasantly despite the inclement
weather. Fully ten thousand
enthusiastle people were in the
little city of Pickens the last day
and all enjoyed themselves to
the fullest extent. They were
)ut for fun and pleasure and
;hey got it. The crowd was or
lerly and good-natured.
The exhibits of stock, farm
)roducts, chickens, fancy work,
md in fact, everything exhibit
x was fine and well displayed.
In the individual farm prod
iot exhibit R. B. Byars won
irst prize with B. A. All'ood a
lose second and J. B. Finley
Tell up in the running. The
*ntestants in the agricultural
ine for other prizes had good
tuff on exhibition. We are
,orry that a county display was
iot gotten from these exhibits
-o send to the State Fair.
The fair has outgrown the
town of Pickens-the street will
aot do another year and a fair
ground is a necessity. A mass
meeting of the citizens of the
county is called to meet in the
court house on saleday in No
vember with the object of mak
ing a permanent organization of
the association and turning it
into a stock company. It is
naecesary, for the good of the
zounty, and the permanency of
the fair, that a permanent or
ganization be effected, suitable
ground be leased and adequate
buildings for the care of stock
and all other displays be erected
and a show ground and race
track be built. If you see it as
we4o, lend your aid and assist
ance to the thing that, more than
any one thing, has turned thie
eyes of the country upon Pick
ens county, the garden spot .of
John A. Johnson.
Deep regret will be felt the
country over that John A. John.
brave fight against death was
unavailing. The governor of
Minnesota died in the hospital at
Rochester, Minn., where an op
eration was performed upon him
in the hope of gaining relief
from the disease with which he
The best measure of the res
pect and gegard in which Mr.
Johnson was held by his fellow
men is to be found in the univer
sal interest which was displayed
in his fight for life and the many
expressions of regret every
where heard that the grim mes
senger had conquered
There was that in John A.
Johnson's life story that appeal
ed strongly to the great mass
of honest, sturdy Americans.
Hie had known the bitterest
pang of poverty. Like Abe
Lincoln, he arose, by sheer force
of will an character, to eminen
ce and renown ." And like Lin
coln he maintained; as he pro
gressed higher, the same af fec
tionate regard and confidence
of the "plain people" that were
his meed in the days of poverty
and hard toil. John A.Johnson
died in the prime of life. Had
he lived a few years longer there
is strong reason to belive he
would have achieved thehighest
honor in the gift of the Ameri
ean people to bestow. He was
strongest competitor against Mr.
Bryan for the Democratic nomi
iation in 1908. Many believed
2ie w ould have been successfulI
.n achieving both nomination
wd election three years hence,
aad he been spared. Specula
ion as to what might have been
s fruitless, however, in the light
>f what is. And John A. John
;on needs no higher honors than
1e had already won to keep his
nemory green. As a boy, he
wvas a loving, faithful son to a
uard-wnrkinhg mother, taking
der years the burden of support
of the family; as a youth he
was still faithful, plodding, alert
scrupulously honest; working
hard all day and reading half
the night to gain an education.
From the humble editorial desk
of a country newspaper office
he was called to the administra
tion of the affairs of state as
'chief executive of Minnesota.
:So faithfully to the interests of
the people did he perform his du
ties that twice again in the fac,
of large normal Republican p
ralities, was Johnson chosen
gov.rnor. When asked the secret
of his success Johnson is said to
have replied: "I tried to make
good." He did. As a faithful
son: an earnest editor; an honest
govenor, he made good. That
is epitaph enough.
Judge's Charge to the Grand Jury.
Gentlemen of the Grand Jury:
This is the last court for you
to attend in your official capaci
ty. You wiil complete all busi
ness on hand. You may, if any
thing left over, work until end
of year. Six of your number
will hold over, to carry forward
untinished business or recomen
dations which have been made
but not observed. In human
life things talked about do not
count; things done count. Reco
mendations had better not be
made than to be made and ignor
ed. You can have the order of
this court to compel attention
and compliance with your reco
mendations. Pickens county
has been highly complimented
on not having many offenders
not much for the court of Gen
eral Sessions. You want to keep
it so. On the wheels of peace
and order will follow prosperity
and happiness. In some parts
of the state you hear of the fiscal
agents of the state being $20,000
behind. A rigid investigation is
always a vindication of a good
officer. Good roads are a badge
of advanced civilization. There
is no reason why the roads in
every county should not be in
god condition, and the bridges
i1: good order. Injuries to a
traveller from a defect in a high
way or bridge have to be paid
for by the county. The officer
who neglects his duty ought to
be required to refund it to the
The Poor Farm should be care
fully looked after. The inmates
are poor and needy, helpless and
should have their comfort.
Punishment of a criminal is to
reform him. He is entitled to
humane treatment. None but
coward would be cruel or unkind
to a convict. He should be well
fed and well clad. A chain gang
it expensive to the county and
is entitled to have value receiv
ed for every dollar spent. See
that the accounts are carefully
scrutinized and that they are all
If you ':now of any violation
of law not prosecutive, it is your
duty to present it. Law is no
respecter of persons. Justic is
blind. None are so high and
mighty that you may not touch,
and none so low that you may
not lift them up. You are the
grand inquest-the barometer.
If every thing is going right and
smooth in your county, you may
take it as a good sign that you
are doing your duty. If all from
the Govenor down do their duty,
the law will be enforced. One
of the most celebrated state pa.
pers was a presentment of the
Grand Jury of Barnwell county
in which it presented the Gov
ernor of the state. There are
portions of the State where it is
said the law cannot be enforced.
The juries could enforce it if
they wanted to.
The legislature in trying to
mitigate the evils of the liquor
traffic has provided that liquor
cannot be sold except through
the dispensary law, and the law
should be enforced as all other
