Cole li. Blease is to be the
next Governor of South Carolina
and we congratulate the peo
pie of the state upon the choice
they have made. This paper
advocated his cause and predicted
his election, and we bear the
proud distinction of being one
of only live papers in the state
to rally to his standard. Wo
supported him because we believed
him to be clean, conscientious.
firm and brilliant and
we are glad to know that a large
majority of the voters here and
elsewhere have coincided with
our views. We are especially
gratified and pleased with the
handsome majority given him
in this r-oimtv thus nssnrinir us
that the voters hero thought as
we did. We feel satisfied that
Cole L. Blease will make a good
governor and render the people
honest and faithful service and
further that he will be firm and

We believe that no man who
cast liis vote for Blease will ever
ho ashamed of having done so
but to the contrary we shall all
in time feel proud of our efforts
to make him governor despite

one hundred newspapers t<? the
contrary. And now then, just
a word of friendly advice to our
contemporaries throughout the
state: Blrase has won a splendid
victory. Single-handed and
alone hi1 fought the tight and
won against their united efforts
to defeat him. If ever the papers
of the state used their every
effort, to defeat a man it
was on this occasion, And now
that the people of the state have
refused your advice and stood by
their choice, don't sulk in your
tents, contemporaries, and continue
to vilifv and abuse him.
(Jive him :i ehnnee Jind we nre
satisfied that you will in time
admit your mistake. We believe
in fair play and a square
deal and we are just a little hit
afraid that you will be looking
for defects from time to time
with the purpose of exposing
and blazoning to the world every
little mistake iu order that
you niav say, "1 told you so."
Remember, lie is to be the governor
of your state. Your irovernor
as well as ours and as he
succeeds or fails so will it retard
or advance the interest and welfare
of South Carolina. Instead

Running Short on Money
There luis been some complaint
during the pv.s, several
months of the shortness of money.
It has been stated that businnc?o
v?t/\n ?> ^ ^
i i v oo Kirn ill I MTU IJL IllUIiry
could not serine it from local
banks even though they held
the very b<ist of paper.
The condition is to be regretted
because the lack of money
causes business to stop and business
does not have to remain for
a very long time at. a standstill
until another panic comes,
det the people to talking hard
times and hard times will come
as surely as taxes.
It is the bankers business to
keep a supply of money for the
i assistance of business men in
the running of their business all
of the time. His money represents
his stock of goods. Suppose
our grocery stores should
run out of goods, our clothing
stores out of clothes, our shoe
j stores out of shoes, etc , then
what would the people do?
The stores would certainly not
jexpect to hold their patronage.
Why should the people he made
to sufTer because the hanker lets
his "goods" run out.
This thing of not providing
isufficient money at all times
for the conducting of all legitimate
business is a serious question
and will hear conservative,
earnest and anxious thought.?

and individually have

I thought that maybe the reason
I for tlie alleged laziness of the
jSoutbelli people was because
J home was attractive and com
fortable and business could wait
until it was enjoyed. We hope
at least that is the reason.
Here in our city is one example
which we know of and
which is most interesting.
In this particular section of
the city James street runs north
and south. Another short street
intersects and runs off down the
hill from James. Every day of
the world, the weather permitting,
a horse and huj. can be
seen coming lip over the little
hill to the now extensively
traveled highway. When the
team turns into .Tamr?? thA
father stops t h?* horse, gets out
and helps a little round-face,
broad-smiling little fellow to the
ground and kisses him.
"Good bye Daddy'* the little
fellow calls and runs back over
the hills and home again.
