The Need of.the Time.
The Spartanburg Herald in con
cluding an admirable editorial on the
passing of Senator Hoar says:
"We need more men who are larg
er than their party, larger than their
church, larger than their sphere;
men who cannot be described by a
general definition, and who carry
through all changes of place and time
the fixed adherence to a principle
that is greater than partisan policy."
We need men of this character in
state as well as national affairs. We
need them in the city and the county.
We need them at the ballot box. We
need men who are broad enough to
rise above and out of the sphere of
their own petty spites and selfish de
sires and big enough to do something
for the general weal.
In the horrible and cowardly mur
der and the swift justice which fol
lowed to the murderer at Kershaw
on Saturday night we have another
illustration of the lack of confidence:
in the administration of justice by
our courts which exists in the minds.
of the people. This man. it is said,
had killed two or three other men and
had escaped punishment, and only
the past summer he had been tried
and acquitted ior the killing of a ne
gro. This last deed, according to
the reports, was so cowardly and so
unprovoked, that the mob took it
in charge and justice was sure and
swift, possibly for the reason, and
yet without stopping to reason, that
by some technicality justice in the
courts might miscarry.
There is in the public mind lack
of confidence in the efficiency of the
courts. Whether it is well founded

or not is another questLon. We do
see some strange verdicts. There
is not that respect for the courts that
once existed, even within the recol
lection of a generation. There is
nothing wrong with the system. The
trouble is with the jurors. No sys
tem can rise above those charged
with the administration of the law,
just as no government is greater than
the individuals who compose it. The

It must be a process of education
