Doing Good Work.
The - countj-.-maiiigang i?t doing
goodw?rtonth* public roads. Th
-.7?!!:??, passed th?) convicts Thursday
while they were at work on the Ab
beville road nea;* the late home of
Capt T. C. Morgan, twelve miles
above Edgefield. Capt. Sawyer
and two guards were in charge of the
33 convicts, some of whom are hired
from the state. With two wagons
hauling stone to fill the holes and
low places, with r;he heavy road plow
drawn by six mules, and. the road
machine likewise drawn by six heavy
mules, Capt. Sawyer is enabled to
cover a consider ibl? distance every
day. While it is true that the pres
ent system has cost the county a
very large amount of money,
possibly more at times than it should,
yet' we believe that the convict sys
tem is the best way to keep up the
roads. The thorough work that the
chaingang is nov.- doing and the gen
erally improved condition of the
hundreds of miles of public roads
will bear out this statement. We
believe that Supervisor Moultrie will
by an economic administration of
the affairs of hin office reduce the.
cost of maintaining the road work
ing force to a minimum/

Balloting for a New Name for
Graduates of the Citadel are bal
loting by mail on the proposal for
changing the title of the State's mil
itary college. At the recent annual
session of the alumni, as related at
the time in The Evening Post, this
matter was discussed with keen in
terest, the sense of the gathering fa
voring the chantre proposed by Col.
Bond, superintendent of The Citadel
and president of the alumni body.
In the current issue of The Bulletin,
the official organ of the alumni, Col.
Bond has contributed an article in
which he cites his reasons for advo
cating the change.'
It has been shown that the origi
nal title of the institution was the
Citadel, acts of the legislature show
ing this definitely. Prior to the war
between the states graduates' diplo
mas showed that fchey had completed
courses at the Citadel. After the
reorganization in 1882 the title of
South Carolina Military Academy
came into use, though the distinctive
title of the Citadel has been the more
popular. Col. Bond makes a con
vincing argument in favor of. the
change to."The Citadel, the Military
College of South Oarolina,"and cites
strong evidence ia his support.
Secretary Moore, of the Alumni,
is not prepared at this time to discuss
the progress of the balloting. He
has sent postal cards to every alum
nus whose address is on record and
expects to hear from hundreds with
in the next few weeks. Mr. Moore
asks the graduates to vote on three
different titles, "South Carolina Mil
itary Academy, The Citadel, Found
ed by General Assembly 1842";
South Carolina ' Military College,
The Citadel, Founded by General
Assembly 1842", and "The Citadel,
the Military College of . South Caro
lina, Founded by General Assembly
It is believed that the last named
title will be favored by a majority
of the alumni. If this be the result
the alumni will prepare a memorial
to the'Legislature advocating the
change. The Legislature will also
be appealed to through the faculty
and board of visitors, at the request
of the graduates. -Charleston Post.
