THE PETITION SHOULD DE SIGNED.
The fathers and mothers of the city
arc making a mistake in neglecting to
sign tho petition being circulated for
tho submitting to a vote thc question
of issuing bonds to thc amount of
?15,000 to build :in J equip the new
school building on thc lot which has
been bought for that purpose. If the
failure to obtain the signatures of a
sufficient number of freeholders up to
this time is due to dissatisfaction with
thc location of the lot, the trustees,
who unquestionably have had and
still have the best interests of all at
heart, arc being badly treated and at
the expense of the progresa of the
children of thc town. These trustees
were elected as the representatives of
the people They aro from among
thc leading citizens and they are hon
eBt. They have selected thc lot with
special reference to center of popu
lation, after honestly considering thc
advantages and disadvantages of many
lots offered to them. This muoh of
tho matter is settled and tho people
should so regard it. Marry of us would
have been better pleased with some
other location, this writer among
others, but thc decision of thc trustees
outweighs individual opinion.
The necessities for bringing this
matter promptly to a vote are great.
Tho central school, for example, was
designed originally for u Bunting ca
pacity of only 400. Tho enrollment
of pupils has for somo timo been over
COO, with an average attendance of 05
per cent. Every grade is orowded and
Bovcral are divided into sections in
order that they may bc taught. A
visit to this school will develop tho
fact that faithful aud efficient work is
being done, but under n any difficul
ties. Thc teachers aro forcing pro
gress, moulding humanity, aidiug des
tiny,but it is slow and laborious for both
teachers and pupils.
Tho parents should see that thero
are fewer stones in tho roadway that
leads to success, lt is well enough to
bo activo in business, investing and
accumulating, but there is a higher
duty due our children than the mere
accumulation of money for their benefit.
If rich they may got through life, but
what of humanity, of good, of harm in
suoh a life without wisdom or knowl
edge. There is but little honor in an
inherited career. The iiitie tots and
barefoot boys of today should bo given
every opportunity possible, under the
most favorable conditions possible, to
rise by the aid of their brains, and
taught that no power on earth can
keep those down who want to bo an
honor to themselves and an aid to
Pleasant and healthful surroundings
for children mean better brains and
stronger bodies. No more satisfac
tory returns should be wanted on dol
lars invested than those Tho ohild
best equipped with health and a good
store of knowledge has the best chanco
to win in life in any vocation. Riohes
too often take wings. "How muoh
botter is it to get wisdom than gold."
To issue bonds /or this school build
ing doos not mean a burdensome in
crease of taxation. It means, at most,
a reasonable advantage to the children
to facilitate the training of their
minds. They will pay tho bonds.
One-half of ono mill additional tax to
pay the interest and create a small
sinking fund is all tho parents aro
asked to pay. Tho training over tho
children will bo well equipped tu take
care of the bonds.
Anderson should bo proud of her
splendid public school system. It is
not equalled by any in the State.
Interest in these schools should be
manifested by frequent visits by every
parent and indeed hy every tax payer.
This would enable them to see and
appreciate the progress being made by
their educators, and how they aro ham
pered and how thc children are ham
pered and their health menaced by
orowded rooms. They would find in
every grade an educator whoso qualifi
cations and temperament fit him-or
her-for the grade. They would bo
brought to realize, too, that while in
dustrial development and fertile soil
are making Anderson famous, far more
than all theso is the power of tho

Sooretary Root's statement in a
speech that granting the suifrng? to
the negro had proven u great mistake
has created a profound impression in
tho North. The Savannah News says
that tho expression of that sentiment
was but the eoho of what tho people
of that scotion of tho country had
long been thinking about it. and this
is doubtless true. Tho Southern States
have done what they oan to undo this
evil, and outsido of professional poli
ticians their oourso no doubt meets
with the approval of the oountry.

The two hundredth anniversary of
John Wesley, the founder of Metho
dism, which has grown to bc one of
the most powerful religious denomi
nations in the world, will occur on the
17th of .June next. Already a move
ment has begun in the Methodist
Episcopal Church to celebrruc it with
great religious pomp, and throughout
this country and l'Europe the event
will be made the occasion for a great
religious awakening among the Metho
dists. On that day services will be
held and .sermons preached ill memory
of this great reformer of tho seven
teenth century, whoso name is revered
and honored by evanpolical'Christiau
denominations throughout thc world.
In a dispatch from Knoxville, Tenn.,
dated Feb. l'Jth, wo lind that thc
Southern Railway Company has rent
ed offices in one of the largo office
buildings in that city and has install
ed a corps of engineers, who arc said
to bc at work on the drawings, esti
mates, surveys, etc., for the Rabun
Gap extension ovor tho old Blue Ridge
route. The line will, as now proposed,
be built south from Maryville, Tenn.,
to which point tho Southern already
has a line from Knoxville to tho Little
Tennessee River, thenoo on through
Rabun Gap in thc mountains to this
city. Bushneii is a station on tho
Murphy Rranch of tho Southern,
which runs from Asheville to Murphy,
The information comes from Wash
ington that the Democratic members
of Congress already arc deeply inter
ested in the subject of a national plat
form and a Presidential candidate for
11)0-4. Though the national conven
tion will not be called into being for
more than a year, the subject is dis
cussed daily, and thc utmost confi
dence is expressed that common ground
will bo found for all Democrats to
stand upon, and that the party will
enter the noxt Presidential campaign
united and with brighter prospeots of
victory than bave been before it for
tho past ten years. Many of tho lead
ers of the Democratic party sro sot
yet ready to commit themselves to
the candidacy of any man for the
Presidential Domination, but it is a
fact well worthy of note that those
who are willing to go on record almost
without exception deolare for Judge
Alton B. Parker, of New York. Many
who are unwilling to openly declare
for Parker express themselves private
ly as favorable to his candidacy.
Two Stalwart Members.
Editor W. W. Ball, of the Laurens
Advertiser, in an interesting letter to
his naper from Columbia, under date
of I' eb. 22, Bays :
The lower house of tho General As
sembly has two stalwart members, a
little gray with years creeping on, who
bolong to that last disappearing gen
eration that may never be equalled for
noble virtues perhaps and who bring
to mind the proudest days of South
Ono of these is a Laurens man, native
to the manner born and though he rep
resents Anderson now Laurens has a
right to be proud of him and is proud
of him. His name is M. P. Tribblo,
"Mit" Tribble his old friends call him.
He was a soldier of gallantry, he was a
Democrat when it cost most to be a
Democrat, and ho is and has always
been a man-every inch of him. It is
alright to have young men in oftice
young men sometimes are needed and
the doors should not be closed to them
-but it is to the high honor of Ander
son that she has Bunt t Iiis fine, sterling
specimen of a practical man with con
victions, whom storms of war could
not conquer to ropreaent her. Tho
South Carolina government has a num
ber of nice, comfortable little jobs to
distributo from time to time which re
quire honest men of common SCURO. lt
seems to me tliat it wovid bo a right
thing and a popular thi .g for a gover
nor to do to look; carefully around for
sueh men ns M. P. Tribblo when ap
pointments ure to bo made-whether
they solicit them or not. I do not say
that men should be appointed merely
because "they have been soldiers," but
wheu men who have served the State
nobly und faithfully and aro efficient,
intelligent mon ns well, are available,
they ought to have preference over the
The other, of tho paine type, is Cap
tain J. ll. Brooks, of Greenwood Coun
ty. He was a native of Edgeliold and
lives now nt Cambridge, which was a
part of Edgeileld before Greenwood
County was carved out. Captain
H rooka was a splendid soldier. He is
a modest man but ho is a man who has
bravely met all emergencies and whose
value as a citizen has been proven time
aud time again.
In the House of Representatives are
numbers of good men. bright men
most of them young fellows and some
of great promise-but to my mind tho
pick and choice of the lot are these
tried and true Carolinians, Tribblo, of
Anderson, and Brooks of Greenwood
(and I do not put one before the other)
tho libre of whose manhood has boon so
well and truly tested. Perhaps there
are other? but I know these personally
and from my childhood have known of
them from those who know them long
est and best and I ara glad of the op
portunity to speak of them and tell thc
people of my county that at least a few
of the kind still live to bo appreciated
and honored in Carolina.

to buy inferior Goods, even though the price is cheap. Their experience
teaches them that so-called Cheap Gooda are in the long run extravagantly

dollar, and we renew to them now our pledge that so long as they desire the
