Cli!TAIN NEWSPAPERS AND THE
+ PREIDNT OF ADGER COL
KEssas. EDITons:-yhe history of the
controversy between the President of Adger
College and two of Its Professors shows that
s ome of our up-country newspapers treated
'thegentleman dirst alluded to very unfairly.
1. rhe first introduction of the unpleasant
matter was a clandestine artiele in the
Keowee Courier written by a friend
oif the two Professors with their knowi
edge and at:probation which, while laud
ing the Professors, contained serious allega
tiens spatthe conduct of the President
-and daaging to the welfore of the
oleecommitted to his care. The
atceabove spoken of is called clandestine,
becanse It appeared without the knowledge
of the editors, and while they were absent.
2. Net knowing the authorship of this
Vfe wrote to the Chairman of the Execn
tive mitee,callingupon %im for refuta
obnoxious. eatonce published the letter
of.the President and appended a letter of bis
own. The only thing in the former that had
any semblance of a reference to the two cx
Professors, was the expression of the writer's
opinion that the troubles resulting existed
og before the election of himself last June.
There was not a word to intimate what the
troubler referred to were, and nothing what
ever to Intimate that the incidental remark
was Intended. to hurt the ex-Professors in
any way. The evident aim was simply to
show that the present troubles had not grown
from any personal difficulties to which the
President was a party.
3. Taking occasion of this allusion to the
past history of the College, the two Profes
sors published each a letter containing
strong accusations against the President
such certainly as he was bound to defend
himself from, if he had any defense to make.
4. The President thereupon believing he
had a defense to make, wrote to show that
the gross charges of one professor, and the
statementsoftheother weregronndless. Now
we do not see that in acting thus the Presi
der.t of Adger College has done any inore
than exercise a right pertaining to any cii
sen who has been publicly assailed. WVe do
not presume to settle any question of veracity
between his assailants and himself. The
truth of either side, it is not our province to
decide, but we must say as to the question
of the statement which has appeared in the
Koowee Courier from his pen, that if be
believed it to be true, as no doubt he did, no
one had a right to make It the subject ofecen
sure. This certain newspapers have done.
and not only so, but one paper published
one of the*ssaults on him, but refused in
terms injurious to his defense to publish his
reply at all; while another describes the
language of this welt-written statemnent as
sacrIlegIous. We suppose the learned editor
nment profane. But be that as it may, we
have searched all that has come from the
gentleman's pen in connexion with the whole
Scontroversy and failed to find anything either
sacrilegIous or profane. He tells some very
bad things, but he does it in as unexception
able language as possible. We do not pro
pose to enter into any controversy as
to the merfts of the question at issue between
the eontroversialts, but so ar as the ques
Stioeernewspaper fair play isoncerned, we'
ecannotforlbear to say that some up-country
newspapers owe it to Adger Cleeto make
reparation for the foul-play wihthey have
practised towards Rts rpenttive. His
self-defense is lnno'wlselakagnreverence
to the SpeeBeing, nor does It grove him
-". nfit tobersiet, but the contrary, if It
atrue. This question, we repeat, it is not I
our province to decide upon. But It Is not
fair that one who has only appeared on the
defensive should be charged with the blame
of all the ugly disclosures which doubtless i
~e cnpelled to.make In order to save
fmodium hinself and Adger College, too.

An exchange says, "There are

tory will soon rest on the solid
ground; it has been on paper much
too long. The enterprise is now
led by men of business integrity
and administrative ability; men
who have inspired the people with
confidence by their successful man
agement of their own affairs. Few
persons ever doubted that the suc
cessful operati.n of a cotton mill,
in the midst of us, would bring
great benefit to the town as well as
furnish a profitable investment for
capital. The enterprise now has

A tell-tale letter from McLane to

crew, in furthering the political per

that Willard would be.the-bell-weth
er of the Republican party, if it
ever attempted a reorganization in

mnough to see that no permanent

The grand juries are beginning
to discuss the practicability of hav- t
ing better country roads. We are t
glad to see this. The grand juries
are of the people, and they fairly
represent popular sentiment in
their respective communities. The
road question is,one;of living and f
practical importance, and itisone i
with which our legislators should
deal promptly. Good roads would
make marketing easy, and they
would diminish the number of bro
ken-down horses, and wornout wa
gons and bugies. Under the pres
ent system comparatively nothing is
gained by attempting to work the
roads before April.
The Washington Post says--A
few days ago Attorney General t
Brewster said of the persons arrest

decency, in enforcing the Federal
electikn laws he felt contrained to
see that these trials were pushed by ]

having been discharged because
there was "no evidence" against
them, the question arises, who has
