Certain Spartanburg merchants

The blanks that have just been

Judging from the many reports
of robberies, burglaries, homicides

Governor Heyward is alarmed
over the increasing demand for
^rewards for the arreet of fugitives
from-juitice, and entertains the
belief that if the Bheriffa dis
charged more faithfully their offi

sary for so many rewards to be
offered. HegooB a step further
by Baying that he will recommend
to the legislature that tm? gover
nor be given tho power to remove
a sheriff who is derelict in his
duty. In this Governor Heyward
is right. Not a few of the sheriffs
.in South Carolina should have
their official heads removed. How
