ABOUT PRIMARY ELECTIONS ,
It may seem idle to talk of discontinuing
primary elections, but
there are some facts in regard to the
11 ? -.A!?!? ma4- Ka ftVOV.
mauer which ouvuiu ?iw u\.
looked. In the recent primary there
was as much cause, we imagine, to'
bring out a full vote as there will be)
in ordinary election years. Notwith-j
standing fifty thousand people who(
enrolled for participation in the|
primary elections did not cast their!
ballots in the first primary.
In the second primary when the j
race for governor had narrowed to j
two men and each man, backed in.
some measure at least by a faction,
was doing all that he could to get j
out the vote, ably assisted by mana-j
gers, helpers, and friends, more
than iorty thousand of the enrolled I
voters failed to go to the polls.
In Abbeville County nearly one
thousand men and women who en
rolled to vote lauea to go out ana;
vote in the first primary and nearly |
that number in the second.
Added to this is the fact that a-,
great many people for one cause and
another did not enroll.
In the State of Georgia, in the recent
primary, according to figures
which we have .seen, fewer than two
hundred thousand people voted.
If the people shall grow disgusted
with the primary as a means of selecting
state officers, or officers of
any kind, and shall continue to xe-j
fuse to vote in the primaries, it will!
not be long until the primary vote j
will represent a minority of the peo-j
pie of voting age in the state. In;
that case, the primary will not be;
efficacious to keep people from car-;
rying the appeal to the general elec- j
tion. If there is danger of the ne-i
g:ocs taking part in elections, a sup-j
posed danger which we think is:
greatly overestimated, we do not:
think we are going to get rid of the':
danger by the primary route, not al-j
Not all the men selected for office
in the primaries are men of indiffer- ]
ent ability and attainments, but most!
of them are. The kind of men nomi- ]
nated for office encourages some!
people to believe that it were bet-;
ter to have nothing to do with these j
elections. Better men, .selected in j
some other way, would command J
votes from people who do not nowj
ei roll for the primary elections, or
who if they enroll, do not vote.
It is as easy to have political i<
bosses with the primary elections as j ]
it is without them, and the class oi'j
bosses is not improved.
. LOCK. AT LAW SON'S LAWN
-n.N t'it: siviy ?uc;>9 uiiu ui uic uuc|j*
ers of the beautiful grounds of the!
University at Oxford was asked by:
an inquisitive American, probably!
from Spartanburg: ''Piay (it has!
been noted tjiat all Spartanburg
Auic-iicaiui always use that form of j
speech when seeking for informa-'
tion) pray tell me how do you keep;
your lawns so wonderfully beautiful?"
and the answer was: "Three
hundred years of cutting and rolling.'
This little story i.-: repeated!
here to encourage the residents of]
Mills Avenue, and other newly dis-J
covered territory in that part of the j
uppity part of town that they may
be able to do something for the iin- j
provement of their own premises ifj
they will follow the Oxfordian ex-[
ample of W. B. Lawson, who has
made for himself and the delight,
not to say shame, of all his
neighbors really the finest thing in
the way of a lawn in the much neglected
"chow part'' of our great
City. We do not know how he did
it, but he did, and it is worth seeing,
because if there is one thing more
than another that ought to engage
the attention of the yard owners in
this town, because in a very definite
.ense it is selfish, it is knowing how
to make their yards look their best.
Mr. Lawson, it should be stated, i;
from Abbeville, the son of Iliran:
who v/as the son of Hiram, and as no
body in Abbeville ever had anything
that looked like a lawn, it must b(
by way of acknowledgemenl
that ho got his inspiration from Vic
tor Montgomery?who has "conu
out" more than anybody else in thi;
community except W. S. Glenn ir
the last six months?with whom ht
has been associated for some year:
in a groat industrial enterprise thai
has done moi-e for the people and the
community that have been benefitcc
by its administration than it ha;
been benefited by their consid'
rration. This is only by the way
however, and it has taken a lon?
time to get to the point we have
had in mind: If you want to knov,
how to make a lawn, see W. B. Lawson
and take his advice?W. B. Lawson,
who was born and brought uj:
