Felder used to be quite severe on
witnesses when he was cross-exam

Th-j Ohio supreme court has hand
ed down a decision that Judge Blalr's
action in disfranchising the 1,100
voters in Adams county for selling
their votes was legal. Hundreds of
cases in Sclto and Adams counties
have been awaiting the decision of
the $;uprerae court. They will now
be speedily disposed of.
In the winding up of the old State
Dispensary there were some good,
fat lawyers' fees paid by the commis
sion to the Atlanta lawyers and a few
South Carolina lawyers. We have al
ways thought that these fees were
exhorbitant and that the work for
which they were paid couid have
been gotten for on half the fees paid.
Gov. Blease has appointed a new
board to wind up the affairs of the
old State Dispensary In place of the
one he removed. The old board
took its time In what it was created
to do. The new board i3 composed
of good men and we hope they will
soon wind up the old dispensary ; :i 1

The fae.t that, a man who has
served several years for a cr-?ie of
which he was not guilty, should teach
us some valuable lessons. In the

other is that it should lor! people

A professor of one of our large
uni/ersities recently spoke on the
marriage and divorce problem. In so
doing he asked and answered the
question. "What Is love?" Possibly
he has had experimental knowledge
of ':he subject and therefore his an
swer was doubtless satisfactory to
himself and pleasing to his audience.
Still we doubt if It surpassed or even
equalled the old definition that "love
is love." In that there Is a charm
ing simplicity and It leaves so much
for the imagination.
"O eloquent, just and mighty

It was a striking scene when Sena
tor Benjamin R. Tillman stopped In
the midst of his tribute to his de
parted colleagues, Dolllver of Iowa
and City of Geo0;a, says the Chat
tanooga News. He spoke of the one
as great, of the other as good, and
then he stopped and added simply
that his thoughts came faster than
his words, and sat down, his eyes
baihed in honest tears.
Oh, fine Ben Tlllman, who was
not afraid of admitting his emotion.
Well might this stern fighter, whose
days of battle are over, be moved
when he thought of the long file
that has passed out of the senate
doors since he entered them. How
much ambition, noble and ignoble,
how much striving has he seen er.dca

Senator Tillman has been in pub
lic life since 18S'6, when he began
a campaign for industrial and agri
cultural education. He was made
governor in 1?90 and became sena
tor in 1894. There he found Mor
gan of Alabama, Teller of Colorado,
John B. Gordon of Georgia, Allison
of Iowa, Gorman, of Maryland, Vest
and Cockrell of Missouri, David B.
Hill, Hoar, Quay, Daniel, Pfeffer,
Lindsay of Kentucky, George and
Withal and John Sherman.
All of them are gone from the sen

with them haK a score of lessed

Hanna and Foraker have played
their roles. Hc-.le and Aldrich are
soon to pass. Only Lodge, Frye,

one or two more, of all those that

will take their seats, God willing, in
the sixty-second congress.
Our Six Footed Foe.
Under the above caption the At

"Dr. Claude Smith, city bacteriol
ogist, sounds a cimely alarm o:! these
pestilent Insects, millions of which
will swarm foith with the coming
spring. When he declares that they
are responsible for much of the sick
ness and many of the deaths in At
lanta, he In r:o degree exaggerates
their menace. His statement is based
upon science and statistics.
"Every household that fails to take
precaution against the fly is exposing
Itself to disease and perhaps to
death. One of the bravest expedi
tions that Hercules ever essayed was
the slaying of the hydra, a many
headed monster fabled to have made
his lair in a stagnant lake in Greece.
At frequent Intervals this creature
would swoop down upon a city and
devour its inhabitants. So terrible
were its deprecations and such a
blessing was its death, that the le
gend has livec through all the cen
turies that followed.
Yet the ordinary house fly with Its
six feet is as much a curse and a
peril to cities of the present day as
was the storied hydra of old. Indeed,
its invasions are even more danger
ous because its seeming insignificance
disarms our fears. The house fly is
such a common carrier of typhoid
fever that it has been named 'the
typhoid fly.' .Tt breeds in uncleanll

birthplace wherever it goes. And it

Gov. Blease has not yet siined the
resolution to investigate the acts of
the dispensary commission and there
is little prospect of his doing so, al
though the resolution was passed at
the request of the Governor in ai

afraid his own record might figure
in any proceedings of investigation,

that they do not ronsider it a dis

it would require a catapult or batter

in his race for governor was tn*
Newberry Herald and News, wbos^
editor, Col. E. H. Aull, did no :ltt?t
to make the result of that memora
ble campaign what it Was, but he
doesn't approve of his excellency's
course in his controversy with th
supreme court in the matter of the
appointment of special judges. In a
recent editorial Col. Aull said:
"So far as the law of the case :s
concerned, we are of the opinion that
it is clearly not the prerogative ot
the executive to declare a statute un
constitutional, however strongly he
may be convinced that it is uncon
stitutional. Under our system of
government that is the prerogative
of the supreme court. Legally, there
fore, it seems to us that the governor
is in error in undertaking to re
fuse to appoint one recommended
by the supreme court, because that
Is the province of the supreme court.
jjft'But if he takes the position that
tWi statute directing the supreme
court to recommend is unconstitu
tional, and then furnishes that list
of "ellglbles," he admits that he
will appoint on their recommenda
tion provided the recommendation
contains the name of one of his eligi
bles, and, therefore, weakens and
contradicts his own position. He
can not, therefore, sustain the posi
tion in the minds of the people that
there is no need for special judges
I and that the matter has been carried
! to the extreme."
