"With Appeals Pending."
This morning's paper makes the
announcement that there are in the
death cell of the penitentiary six
men, three white and three colored,
under sentence of death, with ap
peals pending. Not many years ago
there was a clamor, and not without
good cause, for speedy trials. As a
result of this urging, trials in the
main are more speedy, but the
trouble now is with the numerous
appeals that are possible under the
existing practice and rules of our
One of the men under sentence of
death slew several members of his
family in cold blood nearly two years
ago, yet the sentence of the court
has not been executed because of ap
peal after appeal. Between the gen
eral assembly and the supreme court
itself, this continuous appealing of
cases should stop. If there is not suf
ficient law on the statute books now
to stop this trifling with justice
through appeals on trivial or purely
technical grounds, it should be en
A Mighty Good Governor.
The Advertiser is simply stating' a
plain truth when it says that Govern
or Harvey is making the old Palmet
:o state a mighty good governor.
The fact is we would like to see
him succeed himself by at least two
years, and if it were not "onconsti
tutional," we would move that his
:ei*ra be extended, without further
ceremony, through 1924.
One thing, among many others,
that v>'3 especially like about the
Governor is that his "jaw-bone" is
aot out of proportion to his "back
bone." Without undue prating and
parading, he acts when a matter is
presented to him for .consideration,
and not only acts with firmness but
leaves off the "blow and bluster"
which is sometimes heard from one
vested for a season with authority.
Being a mild-mannered man, just
such a gentleman as one would ex
pect Charleston's atmosphere of cul
ture to produce, people looked on
with bated breath when he first took
his seat in the executive chair to see
if he would REALLY BE GOVERN
OR, and they have found him GOV
ERNOR. So, as he is "fighting a good
fight" and is "keeping the faith," we
are not going to wait until he has
"finished his course" to say "Well
done.'" We are going to say "WELL
DONE," to you, Governor Harvey,
Executive Needed With "Teeth."
Not infrequently one hears this or
that law referred to as having no
"teeth," meaning that no provision
has been made for its enforcement or
that adequate punishment has not
been provided, causing the law to
have no terror for violators.
In this day when crimes innumer
able and of the most revolting kind
are being committed and when great
er respect for law should be engen
dered, do we not also need executive
officers with "teeth," men who are
known to be unyielding and show
violators of the law no quarter? Why
provide laws with "teeth" and under
these laws apprehend and convict the
guilty only to have them set free to
resume their career of crime?
Of the men who are candidates for
governor is not there one outstanding
personality whose election would
most please distillers, blind tigers and
violators of the law of that type? If
we are to judge the future by the
past, would not the election of Mr.
Blease mean that pardons in great
numbers would be indiscriminately
granted, causing distillers, blind ti
gers and other criminals to grow bold
er and bolder under the belief
that if apprehended and convicted,
a pardon could be secured through
some "pardon attorneys," as many
lawyers over the state who were in
strumental in securing pardons were
called. Would not a return of such
a condition at this time, when crime,
following in wake of the war, is al
ready rampant, be extremelv unfor
tunate? It is not an easy riratter to
secure evidence sufficient to convict
distillers and whiskey sellers, there
fore it is all the more necessary when
once they are caught in the meshes of
the law that the sentences of the
courts be not interfered with.
Some good citizens will vote
for Mr. Blease and in addition prac
tically 100 per cent of the law break
ing class will support him, because in
the past he has proven himself to be
the friend of the man behind the pris
In this connection we would warn
our men and women wrho stand for
the suppression of crime and the
proper punishment of criminals to
"stop, look and listen," before cast
ing their ballots for a candidate for
governor. Mr. Blease has loudly de
clared in the past that he would stand
by his friends and .that his political
enemies would sweat blood. As shown
by his defeat, his friends have so
dwindled in South Carolina that they
are in the minority. Therefore, he
has seen that, if elected, he must
change his policy, outwardly, at least.
So now he announces in a most lamb
like manner that he will be governor
of all the people. Let this not catch
As a matter of fact will not Mr.
Blease's governmental policies be the
same as they were eight or ten years
ago? He is quoted as refusing to say
upon the stump whether or riot he
will grant pardons as he formerly did.
If he says he will grant them as in
discriminately, he will incur the dis
pleasure of the good government ele
ment of our citizenship, and if he
says he will not, he then slaps the law
breakers in the face. So that is the
predicament in which Mr. Blease
finds himself in this race.
But after all is he not the same Mr.
Blease? Ponder well before you cast

An Orchard On Ever?r Farm.
The slogan, "Five good cows, 100
laying hens annd three brood sows
on every farm," is all right as far
as it goes, but here in the Southwest
where peaches, pecans, plums, grapes,
pears, ar.d in some sections, apples,
can be grown almost to perfection
under proper cultivation and care,
the slogan should be amended and
the word "orchard" added.
The small home orchard, berry
patch and vineyard makes a valuable
addition to every farm. Not only is
the orchard a factor in the reduction
of the cost of living, but often it is
a source of profit. s
It does not take an excessive a
mount of labor to keep a small or
chard well cultivated and sprayed.
Much of the work can be done in
seasons of the year when other crops
are laid by, but even though the or
chard needs some attention during
the busy season, it is profitable work.
Every land owner, whether he op
erates his own farm or rents it should
begin preparation to plant an or
chard, a berry patch and a few grape
vines, if he has not already done so.
If a tenant will not give the orchard
proper attention, he is not the kind
of man you want on your farm.If
you do your own farming, you will
be more than repaid for the little
trouble and investment involved.
Your farm* becomes more attractive.
Its selling value is increased, also its
rent value. A good renter will be
more easily secured if the farm home
has its small orchard. Why should
farmers in the Southwest depend
upon the thrift of a neighbor for
his supply of fruit?-Farm and
