Superintendent of Education Mayfleld b
been In a fisticuff witb one of tbe school boc
publishers, and volumes have since be<
printed in the newspapers to establish tl
correctness of the Superintendent's oflici

As a result of the action of Mr. May tie
and the remainder of the board the parents
children in all parts of tbe State are doing
little talking on their behalf.
Tbe constant change in the school books
a source of trouble to the people, and the hif
price at which the books are sold gives st!
further cause of complaint.
While the Press and Banner would not a
tempt to solve the perplexing question, y
we believe It will never be settled as long i
particular publishers are awarded the so
privilege of furnishing the books.
We take It that every school book publlshi
has sent his books free to every School Con
mlssloner in the State, and that every pu
lisber has spent more or less money In sen<
lng agents to Columbia to present the
All thisco8ts money, which must be refun<
f ed by somebody. It is hardly to be presume
that the Northern publishers are sufficient!
philanthropic to Induce them to incur all th
expense without hope of having it refundei
If, then, it is to be refunded the school chl
dren must bear the expense at last by the ii
creased cost of their books.
There is no good reason, with which weai
acquainted, which would Justify the exorb
tant prices which are charged for books, e:
oept in the fact that particular publisbei
have the exclusive right to print the books.
It the 8tate of South Carolina would go Ii

Will Force be JTecewary ?
We see by the newspapers that Governc
Tillman has expressed his determination i
ask the Legislature, for authority to appoli
metropolitan police In the larger cltleB of tb
State. The necessity for this course, he a
leges Is because of his dissatisfaction with tb
police of those cities in reference to the ei
forcementof the dispensary law.
The Press and Banner hopes that Governc
Tillman may not use more force than Is a
tually necessary to command obedience t
lawful authority, but be should exhaust e<
ery power that may be necessary to en fore
The Tlolators of the dispensary law, wb
sell whiskey contrary to law, should t
taught the necessity of observing to the la
which they are breaking, and the law-tbidin
citizens of those cities should express thel
condemnation of lawlessness.
The dispensary law has come to stay, an
It will be useless to force the Governor to r<

Wonders Never Cent*?.
Last week the Newberry Observer came 01
on a patent bide. After fighting the pater
side for years that excellent paper has bee
convinced of the wisdom of the plan, and he
adopted the better system.
Of course the act of the Observer n ear
that the Herald and News must also sooner c
later make the same advanced step.
Where the ability and the conditions are f
all equal no home print paper can long bol
out against the progressive neighbor wh
takes advantage of the Improvements In h

? TELEGRAPH OFFICE.
The Western I'nion Putting l'|> Wirf
Along the ti? C. <1- X.
The Western Union Telegraph Company ai
now putting up wires along the line of tt
G., C. & N. railway, and this fact suggests tt
opening of a telegraph office on the Publ
Square. We presume if the citizens shoul
unite In a request for the company to do s
that they would open an office in the businei
part of town.
Speaking for the Press and Banner we ai
not decided as to whether the up-town offii
would be more desirable than the offices i
the railroad depots. The business of the G
C. & N. requires the Railroad Company I
keep an operator in the office all hours of tt
day and night, and we presume despatch!
could be sent from that depot at any hour i
the night. If we are correct in this suppof
tlon, and If it be true that the uptown offii
would be closed, we have no hesitation in sa
ing that we prefer an office that is kept ope
all the time, even if it be a little further r
moved from the public square.
